Before you get all worried about the Predator part of that headline, rest assured that it’s good news: Fox has actually moved Shane Black’s sequel up by almost an entire month, putting it in early February 2018, likely hoping to replicate the success of similar R-rated fare like Kingsman and Deadpool. The studio has also announced new release dates for two untitled Marvel projects and Robert Rodriguez’s Alita Battle Angel, as well as the spy thriller Red Sparrow.

A big bit of casting new for you before your holiday weekend: Collider reports that James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez have found their star for their big-budget, live-action movie version of Battle Angel Alita. It’s Rosa Salazar from The Maze Runner franchise (and the upcoming movie version of CHiPs). Salazar beat out finalists Maika Monroe (Independence Day: Resurgence) and Zendaya (Spider-Man: Homecoming) for the role.

James Cameron originally intended to direct Alita: Battle Angel himself, but a few years and plans for four more Avatar sequels later, and the director is just a bit too busy to helm the manga adaptation himself. As announced last year, Robert Rodriguez will now direct the project with Cameron executive producing, and it looks like things are picking up as a few talented young women are being eyed for the leading role.

Most of us can’t even plan ahead to what we’re having for dinner or what we’re doing this weekend, let alone make plans for, say, 100 years from now. But director Robert Rodriguez and John Malkovich thought that far ahead for their new film project, which no one will get to see for 100 years — so basically no one who is currently living will ever see this movie, aside from the people who made it.

We haven’t kept up very much with Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey port of his and Quentin Tarantino’s iconic From Dusk Till Dawn, even as it heads into a second season finale this week, but the bloodsuckers aren’t going to be eating dust just yet. El Rey confirms a third season of the blood-soaked vampire drama will arrive in 2016, keeping the Gecko brothers in business.

El Rey
El Rey’s From Dusk Till Dawn TV series shed enough blood through its first year to earn a second season, now set to premiere on August 25. Better even, the Gecko brothers are back, and they’ve brought Danny Trejo with them for the first Season 2 trailer, which brings plenty of blood, bites and bods.

Despite only lasting a single season, the animated series Jonny Quest has become immortal in our collective pop culture memory. Even those who aren’t familiar with the series are familiar with the tropes (and parodies) it has inspired. Warner Bros. is apparently counting on everyone who can afford a movie ticket having a basic familiarity with this property because they’ve redoubled their efforts to get a big screen version off the ground and they’ve hired Robert Rodriguez to make it happen.

With all of the big news coming out of Comic-Con this year, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' seemed to get lost in the shuffle. Perhaps that's why the extended red band trailer that played in Hall H has made its way online, giving us our best look yet at the decade-in-the-making sequel.
