BBC depicts A Christmas Carol as horror in new trailer

My father is a mega-fan of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Consequently, I grew up watching multiple adaptations of it every year at Christmastime. This tradition has held for me even as I've moved out of my parents' home and into my a...

Colin Farrell and Andy Serkis in talks to join The Batman

As a friendly reminder, it's been over seven years since we last had a Batman solo movie. Yes, the character has appeared in some DCEU movies, most of which audiences would like to forget existed, but this has been the longest gap between l...

Venom 2 nabs Andy Serkis as director, somehow

What can be better than having one Venom movie? Having two Venom movies. It was previously reported that actor and motion capture icon Andy Serkis was one of three directors considered by Sony Pictures to helm the not-rated R sequel to Veno...

Review: Mowgli

When it was announced years ago that Andy Serkis (yes, that Andy Serkis) would be making a film based off of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book it looked like we'd get two major blockbusters going head to head as Disney had their v...

Black Panther is black fantasy sci-fi

There’s something to be said about the excitement surrounding Black Panther. That it's profoundly impacted so many people, particularly black people, to see the world of Marvel’s Black Panther comic books adapted...

Andy Serkis' Jungle Book movie retitled and given synopsis

A long time ago (in this galaxy) WB announced that they were going to make a Jungle Book movie with Andy Serkis directing a mo-cap heavy film. Then Disney came along and said they were making one too, and then they made one, and then i...

First trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes shoots in

I got a really in depth look at War for the Planet of the Apes at NYCC this year, but now it is everyone else's chance to take a look. The first trailer has landed and it is crammed full of action and grumpy apes. That's a bit antithet...

NYCC: War of the Planet of the Apes is going to be dark

The Planet of the Apes franchise took an interesting turn when Dawn of the Planet of the Apes came out: it got really good. Like, really, really good. Director Matt Reeves somehow turned a stale franchise into an emotionally powerful b...

Benedict Cumberbatch joins WB's Jungle Book

I don't think we've mentioned it yet, but there are currently two competing versions of the Jungle Book in the works. One is produced by Disney (which just cast their Mowgli) releasing 2015, and the other Warner Bros, which will be directed...

Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

When a prequel to Planet of the Apes was first announced, it seemed like yet another cynical cash in. Yet Rise of the Planet of the Apes tried its hardest to prove everyone wrong with top notch visuals, acting, and score. Although its event...

First trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is boring, plain and simple. It has a cumbersome title, odd looking CGI mashed against live actors, and it's ultimately rendered utterly pointless by film's end. If we know humankind is going to be ...

Andy Serkis debut film will be Animal Farm, for families

Andy Serkis, the actor best known for being the only person to make performance capture work, has decided to become a director. Normally I would applaud this, because I think Serkis is a standup guy (and he has a damn good handshake), but i...

Two Hobbit stills show Andy Serkis in, out of Gollum

That sounded vaguely sexual. Don't much care. Here's two new shots from The Hobbit, presumably something in the first or second of three movies. We've got Andy Serkis in his mo-cap setup, and one of the finished product: Gollum. He's l...

See Andy Serkis be a better ape than Caesar could ever be

This video makes sad, and there are two very-different-but-basically-the-same reasons for it. One is the fact that I was reminded by how unrealistic the CGI is in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Seriously, it's awful. What's much sadder is...

Review: The Adventures Of Tintin

Tintin may not be particularly well known in the United States, but he is something of a treasure for most people in Europe who ever enjoyed a childhood. The news that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson were mounting a big-budget remake cau...

Andy Serkis will be Caesar again, Fox wants an Oscar

Andy Serkis is the highlight of this year's most disappointing Ape-based blockbuster, so it's no real surprise that he will return for the upcoming sequel (which may or may not be a shot-for-shot remake of Full Metal Jacket). What is also n...
