Disney’s live-action remakes have become just as inevitable as death and taxes — not that it’s necessarily a bad thing, considering how well The Jungle Book turned out (on the other hand, there’s that whole Alice in Wonderland thing…). And like that project, the studio may once again be setting up a competing live-action remake, this time turning their sights to The Little Mermaid.
If you had any doubt that a mobile game would make for a successful film, look no further than The Angry Birds Movie, which effortlessly claimed the top spot at the box office over the weekend. So it’s not particularly surprising that another popular mobile game is getting an animated film adaptation, this one based on the slice-happy Fruit Ninja series. Scoff if you must, but never underestimate the power of brand recognition.
SNL vet Fred Armisen returned to Studio 8H this weekend to host the Season 41 finale, and as you might expect, things got pretty weird. In between delivering the longest, most delightfully strange monologue in recent memory and reviving a couple of fan-favorite characters, Armisen starred in this pre-recorded spoof of Dead Poets Society. Riffing on a 27-year-old drama is certainly unexpected, but not nearly as unexpected as what happens at the end of this thing.
In case you didn’t get enough inspiration from our list of the 20 films you absolutely must see this summer, then perhaps our guide to June’s new movie releases will give you a few more ideas. Next months brings sequels to Independence Day, The Conjuring and Now You See Me, a new Pixar film, and a comedy from the Lonely Island trio. And that’s only half of it. Did we mention Daniel Radcliffe’s magical farting corpse? That’s something you definitely do not want to miss (and we say that sincerely).
If you haven’t yet had your fill of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland — or of live-action updates on children’s classics, for that matter — a new film from director Brenda Chapman is doubling down on all of the above. The co-director of Pixar’s Brave is preparing to make her live-action debut with Come Away, a movie that combines elements of J.M. Barrie and Lewis Carroll’s beloved books into one magical (and kind of sad) story.
You really have no idea how loved a movie is until a studio announces plans to reboot it — such is the case with Jumanji, the 1995 film starring Robin Williams, which performed pretty well at the box office but didn’t leave a big impression on critics and (adult) audiences. But reactions to Dwayne Johnson’s new Jumanji movie offer a valuable lesson in the power of nostalgia, as fans have been quick to cry foul on the reboot. Johnson has heard you, and not only is he committed to making the best reboot possible, but he’s also found a “cool” way to honor the memory of Robin Williams.
Honestly, it’s surprising it took this long for a studio to begin developing a horror movie based on Slender Man, the creepy meme that took on a prolific life of its own, inspiring countless photoshopped images, fan art, fan fiction and eventually a video game and a documentary. As rumored yesterday and confirmed today, Screen Gems is the studio that will finally put Slender Man on the big screen, though given how quickly things tend to age in internet years, you have to wonder if this horror movie will still feel relevant by the time it hits theaters.
Just yesterday we learned that Russell Crowe is in talks to play Dr. Jekyll opposite Tom Cruise in The Mummy, and while Universal has yet to confirm that casting, they have released the first official synopsis for the reboot. The plot description makes some hefty promises for Alex Kurtzman’s directorial debut, which is meant to kickstart a new shared universe of action-packed horror movies based on the studio’s classic monsters.
Over the last few days, Josh Boone shared some photos seemingly unveiling his lineup for X-Men spinoff New Mutants, but that’s not the only thing he revealed. The director of The Fault in Our Stars also posted a photo of the title page for his screenplay for the reboot of Interview With the Vampire. Boone followed that with another photo update, which may or may not be part of some weird joke. It’s kind of hard to tell with social media sometimes, you know?
If you’ve ever wanted to watch Daniel Bruhl make Robert Downey Jr. eat a ping pong ball in a Berlin restaurant, congratulations, your wish just came true. In a new German promo video for Captain America: Civil War, Bruhl — who plays the film’s villain, Baron Zemo — takes the actor occasionally known as Iron Man on a little tour of Berlin, stopping in a restaurant to treat his co-star to some authentic German food…including ping pong balls, for some reason.
Jeff Goldblum has had a fairly diverse career, and although he’s given some of his best performances in movies from directors like Wes Anderson and David Cronenberg, the actor is no stranger to blockbusters. Despite giving heroic performances in Jurassic Park and Independence Day, Goldblum has yet to appear in a proper superhero film (though your interpretation of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai may vary), but according to a new interview with the actor, that might change very soon.
Promotional tie-ins are a normal part of franchise movie marketing, but you usually expect stuff like McDonald's Happy Meal toys or collectible Slurpee cups or whatever. But something like a major realtor corporation? That's...kind of unusual. And ads for Coldwell Banker are probably the last place you'd expect to see new footage for X-Men: Apocalypse, but here we are.
