While C.S. Lewis’ groundbreaking Chronicles of Narnia has seven books, Walden Media has only managed to make three of them into movies. Back in 2011 it didn’t look very hopeful for the series, as it seemed that their contract with Lewis’ estate had expired and not been renewed. But now everything seems to be in order, and The Silver Chair is on the horizon, chronologically the sixth book in the series and the first since The Magician’s Nephew not to feature the Pevensie children. Today, Captain America director Joe Johnston has announced that he’s taking the helm of the project.
It’s always fortuitous when a director and stars who made a great movie decide they’d love to all work together to make another one. Such is the case with Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and David Mackenzie, whose fantastic western homage Hell or High Water was a Best Picture nominee last year. The three have decided to reteam, this time with Netflix, for Outlaw King, which, by the title, sounds like it could be very similar to Hell or High Water. It’s anything but.
Thanos finally getting some real screen time in Avengers: Infinity War as the ultimate big bad is pretty exciting, but possibly even more exciting is the fact that we’ll also get to see our two favorite Marvel superhero teams come face-to-face for the first time. Until now, there hasn’t been any connective tissue to bridge the gap between the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, but a foe like Thanos needs more than one group of heroes to take him down. But while these heroes are incredibly powerful, don’t expect them to buddy up with each other right off the bat.
A new supersized project from Peter Jackson is slowly but surely making its way over the horizon: Jackson is producing a film based on Philip Reeve’s dystopian steampunk adventure book Mortal Engines, and the cast is gradually filling out. The latest addition is someone who’s become a bit of a Jackson regular — Hugo Weaving, also known as either Elrond or Agent Smith or V, depending on which kind of genre fiction you prefer, has joined the cast of the movie.
Fans of romantic comedies, vintage Eddie Murphy and the wave of ’80s/’90s nostalgia we’re all riding, listen up: Coming to America is officially getting a sequel at Paramount. Today, the studio announced that the original writers — Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield — are coming back to pen part two, but there’s no word yet on whether Murphy will be back to reprise his role as the African prince.
It’s time to dust off your MultiPasses, Luc Besson fans: his wild sci-fi adventure The Fifth Element is coming back to theaters for a special anniversary re-release, and in 4K, no less. The 1997 movie is just about as weird as you can get with sci-fi, and it’s become something of a classic. But that’s not all — those of us who are excited for Besson’s new movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which hits theaters this summer, will get to see a sneak preview of it attached to The Fifth Element’s re-release.
When it comes to horror movies, it’s always interesting to learn how the moviemakers came up with their endings — especially endings as ambiguously terrifying as that of The Blair Witch Project. An ending can make or break a horror movie, and the directors recently revealed how they thought up theirs, as well as all the alternate ones they shot which were a lot weirder, but maybe less scary.
The Transformers have always been sneaky little miscreants. Their whole thing is that they’re “robots in disguise,” masquerading as cars or trucks or dinosaurs to better blend in with their surroundings. We know that they’ve been coming to Earth for a while now, and the new Transformers: The Last Knight promises to tell us why. The new tease for a trailer coming on Wednesday shows us that Anthony Hopkins may know the answer.
Before signing on for Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins was almost Marvel’s first female director — for Thor: The Dark World. Citing universal uh-oh phrase “creative differences,” Jenkins left that project and later made a deal with Warner Bros. for Wonder Woman. But that doesn’t mean all of her Thor plans have been consigned to the dust of history.
It’s been a good few years for Simon Pegg’s half of the Pegg-Frost Cornetto comedy dream team, and it’s only getting better for him. He’s got two blockbuster franchises under his belt, but his next movie sounds less Star Trek and more Almost Famous-meets-The Voices.
War movies are usually pretty tough to watch. Classics like Apocalypse Now and Saving Private Ryan contain scenes of such shocking brutality that it’s almost impossible not to look away. Scenes like that are what normally gets a movie slapped with an R rating, but Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk is going to be different. The movie is rated PG-13, which is a little odd given that the Allied victory at Dunkirk was coupled with a beach full of corpses and unimaginable loss of life.
Director Niki Caro was mysterious as the dark side of the moon about whether or not Disney’s new live-action Mulan movie was going to feature some of the classic songs from the original cartoon. At first, it seemed like there were no musical numbers planned for the movie, but, after some reflection, Caro has revealed that yes, not to worry, the new movie will have music.
