Well, we've really done it now. We let 'Girl Meets World' set up shop on the Disney Channel, shared faint chuckles at the sight of John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier schilling yogurt, and continually focused on a solitary Olsen sibling. Nevermind you which, as ABC TV classic 'Full House' may be moving forward with a rebooted series, original cast intact, and all because we couldn't just CUT-IT-OUT.
With the final 'Hobbit' film hitting theaters later this year, Warner Bros. is looking for their next big fantasy franchise to fill the void. And since 'Game of Thrones' has made dragons so popular (but is already taken by HBO), the studio is eyeing classic novel series 'The Dragonriders of Pern' by Anne McCaffrey. Are dragons the new wizards?
We have our 'Wreck-It Ralph,' various video game-adapted movies, and even a feature-length 'Angry Birds' film on the way, but now Hollywood is continuing the rich traditional of creating worlds around our favorite nostalgic items with the announcement of a 'Space Invaders' movie.
Comic-Con 2014 is just around the corner, which means lots of big announcements are on the way. While Marvel has certainly been on top of their game as far as carefully planning the phases of their superhero properties, we've wondered exactly what DC and Warner Bros.' game plan was for the next few years, now that they've got 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' in motion. Now, new reports have emerged regarding WB's upcoming slate of comic book movies, including 'Justice League,' a 'Wonder Woman' solo movie, and a Green Lantern and Flash team-up.
Warner Bros. recently screened 'Godzilla,' the Gareth Edwards-directed reboot of the Toho classic, for select members of the press (insert self-congratulatory back pat). Though the rest of the world still has to wait until the beast stomps into theaters on May 16, the studio released a hefty photo gallery of 29 images (including some behind-the-scenes moments) from the film, in addition to teasing some bits about the future of the franchise.
In a move that surprised no one (or, let us rephrase, should have surprised no one), Warner Bros. formally announced that 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder will be helming the long-awaited 'Justice League' movie after he's finished with 'Batman vs. Superman.' With his Superman sequel set for release on May 6, 2016, the premiere date for this DC superhero team-up is projected for around 2018, and the studio has more it wants to accomplish before then.
From being an ape, to leading them, to now directing them ...
Motion-capture master Andy Serkis, who famously portrayed intelligent ape Caesar in the prequel 'Planet of the Apes' movies and became Gollum for Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit' trilogies, will step into the director's chair for Warner Bros.' rendition of 'The Jungle Book.'
The Wachowski's latest, 'Jupiter Ascending,' will hit theaters later this year and seems to herald back to the sibling pair's mega sci-fi blockbuster that skyrocketed them to fame, 'The Matrix.' While 'Jupiter' may not have enough juice to become as big of a box office hit, Warner Bros. may have a backup plan -- launching a new 'Matrix' trilogy.
Looks like it's time to take the red pill again and find out just how far this rabbit hole really goes ...
Not too long ago, Disney put a live-action 'Jungle Book' movie into development with Jon Favreau set to the direct for an October 9, 2015 release. However, because moviegoers were so clearly pining for two live-action 'Jungle Books' (that's sarcasm), another one is coming from Warner Bros., and the film is eyeing 'Rush' helmer Ron Howard for the director's chair.
