James Wan returning for The Conjuring 2

In case you missed the news The Conjuring 2 was delayed until 2016 instead of having a 2015 release date. That was kind of weird because Annabelle did really well at the box office so you'd think they'd want more ou...

Judge Dredd Superfiend gets first teaser

While we may all be chomping at the bit for a return of Karl Urban's Judge Dredd, I think we were happy to hear about the film's producer Adi Shankar taking the character further through a mini-series like he did with The Pu...

Saw producers are ready for more Saw

How many Saw films were there? It seems like twenty were crammed into the franchise's six year run (2004-2010), but now producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules feel like a four-six year break is long enough for people to want mor...

Rob Riggle is Frank f**king West

Remember when I told you all that a movie based on the Dead Rising videogame series was in the works for Sony's Crackle digital service? Yeah, I wasn't thrilled about the concept either, but proving movies work in mysterious ...

More John Carter movies could be in the works

John Carter was one of the biggest cinematic flops in recent history and heads rolled at Disney after it floundered out of the start gate. It was too bad because it was actually an entertaining piece of science fiction a...

Sorry I missed last week's round of Box Office Numbers, folks. I was busy jib jabbering over at New York Comic Con. Good times. During all of that, Dracula Untold and The Judge released to okay numbers, but nothing was able t...

Interview: Adam Saunders, producer and CEO of Footprint Features

The role of a producer has always been kind of opaque to me. I just fundamentally get what directors do, cinematographers do, writers, etc., but "Producer" is such a broad term and encompasses so many things. For that reasons...

Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 teaser shows off new footage

This newest teaser for The Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 1 is short (clocking in at barely over a minute), but boy does it work. Showing off Lorde's new single "Yellow Flicker Beat," the teaser reveals what happens when Katniss makes her way back to District 12. Let's just say things are going to get pretty good.  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st.

WB working on Lego Batman spin-off

The LEGO Movie remains one of my favorite films of 2014. It was charming, smart, and parents have told me their kids didn't move an inch during the whole thing (which is a huge deal). One of the breakouts was Will Arnett as B...

DC's film slate finally revealed! photo
DC's film slate finally revealed!
by Sean Walsh

Hold on to your hats, boys and girls, DC has revealed their film slate through 2020. This is major! We're looking at a pretty major A-List line-up (and Suicide Squad, which is cool too!) following Batman v. Superman - Dawn of Justice:

  • 2016: Suicide Squad
  • 2017: Wonder Woman
  • 2017: Justice League Part One
  • 2018 The Flash
  • 2018: Aquaman
  • 2019: Shazam
  • 2019: Justice League Part Two
  • 2020: Cyborg
  • 2020: Green Lantern

Additionally, Jason Mamoa is finally, officially Aquaman and some rather out-of-left-field casting for Flash sees We Need to Talk About Kevin's titular sociopath Ezra Miller don the red and yellow suit.

What do you guys think? Are you hyped? It's hard not to get excited with a line-up like that to look forward to. Also note this doesn't even include additional Superman and Batman solo movies.

I'ts an exciting time to be a comic fan.

Red Band trailer for Dear White People finally reveals the story

With every trailer and clip for Dear White People I see, I fall more and more in love with the idea. But until now, we've never had a proper look at the film's plot. Basically, a cartoonishly white fraternity wants to throw ...
