There's a new Child's Play in the works for some reason

For those not too in the know, the Child's Play series has been keeping a single story alive for 30 years now. For some reason I don't completely comprehend, Chucky has been a horror icon to many and a joke to more. But regardless the seven...

 
 
 
 
 
Strange Magic photo

First trailer for animated Lucasfilm, Strange Magic

Now here's something that came out of absolutely nowhere. This must've been buried under all of that Star Wars after Disney acquired Lucasfilm, but apparently, Strange Magic is an animated film inspired by a story from George Lucas that's ...

 
 
Iron Sky 2 photo

Help fund an Iron Sky sequel, Iron Sky: The Coming Race

Iron Sky is one of those movies that's made with the craziest ideas possible (Moon Nazis try to take over the world in 2018), but it never quite worked out. It's earned quite the following regardless, and has since spawned a prequel and no...

 
 
Joe Dirt 2 photo

We're getting another Joe Dirt for some reason

You know when you come across some news and suddenly feel like you've stumbled across the worst idea ever? I'm sure I'm supposed to be feeling that right now, but I'm can't shake how stupidly happy I am this exists. Sony's Crackle, the same...

Warcraft movie reveals cast, characters, and two new posters

It may have been in a sticky development the last few years (with Sam Raimi leaving the project, Duncan Jones signing on as the new director, and going through a few rewrites), a movie based off one of the biggest videogames in the world, B...

 
 
Interstellar Review photo

Review: Interstellar

In SCREENWRITING 101, Film Crit Hulk devotes an entire chapter to plot holes. A subsection of that chapter specifically discusses the works of Christopher Nolan, using The Dark Knight as the primary example. Christopher Nolan has a reputati...

 
 
Why Not Play in Hell? photo

Review: Why Don't You Play in Hell?

Last year, Japan Cuts played Sion Sono's Bad Film, a project filmed back in 1995 but not finished until 2012. In my non-review of the film, I unequivocally called it a masterpiece, and I stand by every word. It is a labor of love that ...

 
 
Ouija Review photo

Review: Ouija

Ouija, read as "wee jah" and not "wee gee," is the latest in a line of films I can't believe exist. Movies are pretty much made from anything with a recognizable name now. I mean, we're in a post-Battleship world here people, so sky's ...

 
 
 
Deadpool Movie photo

Deadpool movie actually happening, gets release date

Folks, is this real? Is this truly, truly real? It seems 20th Century Fox is finally fulfilling the promise made long ago (which possibly is attributed to the test footage "leak" a while back) with an X-Men spin-off starring Deadpool. ...

 
 
Ghost Kreme photo

Krispy Kreme is releasing Ghostbusters inspired donuts

Everyone, I really really like donuts. Whether they're spelled "doughnuts" (i.e. the wrong way) or "donuts" (the right way), they're just always so damn tasty. You know what's not tasty? Ghostbusters. That film never inspired any particular...

 
 
The Guest photo

So I got this condom from The Guest PR

To promote a recent screening of The Guest, I was given a shot glass (detailing a shot recipe in the film), a cool CD of the film's soundtrack, and a condom (which I thought was a matchbook first). I'm just telling you guys about it because...

Check out this weird Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles concept art

I finally caught Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for myself the other day and it's not that bad. It's not that good either, but if any of those early rumblings had come to pass (alien turtles, military general Shredder, Casey Jones) it could h...

Dead Rising movie gets a director

Wait, did we ever get around to telling you all there's a film based on the almost popular Dead Rising videogames in the works? You think we're ready for the zombie parade again? If there's any good zombie idea, it's how Dead Rising has one...

 
 
The Ring photo

The Ring 3 gets director, reminds us it exists

Do you folks remember The Ring? It was a horror movie in which watching a VHS tape leads to your death in seven days when a ghost girl comes out of a TV to eat donuts or something. It was all the rage for about two weeks, then everyone prom...

 
 
Space Invaders photo

Now we're getting a Space Invaders movie

Next up in the long line of turning random properties into movies because sometimes they make money, is Space Invaders. Back when Warner Bros first acquired the rights for a movie adaptation of the Taito arcade game, they tried to make a mo...

 
 
 
BUSSSSS photo

Lots of people get hit by buses in movies

Thanks to this supercut done by hh1edits, I've realized lots of people get hit by vehicles in movies. Sometimes it's a joke, sometimes it's serious, and other times it's jarring. So...yeah. Look both ways before you cross the street in mov...

Scooby-Doo getting live action/CGI reboot...again

Sony producing a live action/CG Sonic the Hedgehog movie

Ant-Man's new director confirmed, getting more rewrites

After what seemed liked years of speculation after Edgar Wright left Ant-Man, Marvel has finally found a replacement director. It's someone none of us would have even guessed. Names like Adam McKay, Nicholas Stoller, Rawson Thurber, and Rub...

Mrs. Doubtfire sequel in the works, Robin Williams returning

Although it's been in development hell for years after the original Mrs. Doubtfire first made big money in theaters, it seems that Mrs. Doubtfire 2 is finally happening. Most likely fueled by Robin Williams' return to the public eye (with n...

Nick Cannon developing Drumline sequel for VH1

Unbeknownst to me, 2002's Drumline, a film about a college marching band starring Nick Cannon, has a huge following. In fact, when this news hit our tip line, a good amount of our own editors perked up and shouted their love of the film fro...

Safe House writer in talks to write Bad Boys 3

Now that Jerry Bruckheimer is freed from Disney and is producing things like Top Gun 2 and Beverly Hills Cop 4, one of the sequels in the pipeline is also Bad Boys 3. It's still extremely early on in production (and mind you something like ...

 
 
PG-13 > R photo

Study shows PG-13 films are more violent than R films

You know what? PG-13 rated flicks get away with quite a bit as long as they refrain from using "f**k" more than once and show less than 2 naked breasts. You may have noticed the increase in allowable body counts in say...G.I. Joe Retaliatio...

Vanilla Ice wants a part in Bay's Ninja Turtles reboot

Back when Michael Bay first announced that he was rebooting the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films, Vanilla Ice coyly hinted that he was involved with the film while showing off his sick ass tattoo that was totally done while sober. Well, i...

Chinese PLA officer claims Pacific Rim is propaganda

According to a statement in People's Liberation Army Daily, Zhang Jieli (a PLA officer), wrote that Hollywood uses movies as a way to convey American propaganda to the world. Sure big Hollywood films could have big 'Merican undertones,...

Thor: The Dark World reshooting to add more Loki

Tom Hiddleston's Loki is popular for any number of reasons. He's attractive, he's a fine actor, and some people just like his lines in The Avengers. Since Thor: The Dark World will feature the last of Loki we'll see for awhile, it seems fit...

Let Gary Busey explain exactly what Hobbits are

Did you see those short guys with hairy feet in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and think, "just what the hell are these guys?" Lucky for you, Gary Busey knows exactly what they are and took time out of his busy schedule to explain it...

Rob Liefeld's Godyssey getting adapted for some reason

Rob Liefeld's Godyssey (not to be confused with that one "space odyssey"), a comic that wouldn't know good character work if it came up and bit it in its disproportionate leg, is getting adapted to the big screen with Todd Garner and Brookl...

Crazy man eats entire Denny's Hobbit Menu in one sitting

Some crazy man named Jamie "The Bear" McDonald has eaten the entire Denny's Hobbit Menu in one sitting. An absurd amount of food that two giant manly men could only eat about a third of without slowly dying.  Seriously, pray for this ...
