James Cameron will regain the rights to The Terminator in 2019, and is reportedly heading up a reboot that may be helmed by Deadpool director Tim Miller.
After co-financing the Alan Taylor-directed Terminator Genisys, Skydance Media CEO David Ellison is investing in "an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively."
The Sexy Brutale, an upcoming adventure puzzle game from Tequila Works and Cavalier Game Studios, will release on April 12 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Alongside the game's launch date announcement, the first official gameplay trailer for The Sexy Brutale has been released. Give it a look below for an early glimpse at Lafcadio Boone, as the elderly priest strives to prevent a string of recurring murders from happening within the walls of The Sexy Brutale casino mansion.
The series of murders transpire over the course of a single day, repeating on an infinite loop, and it's up to Boone break the cycle and uncover the secrets of the mansion and its mysterious owner. Read our impressions from last year's Gamescom demo to find out why The Sexy Brutale is like Dishonored meets Groundhog Day.
While Iron Man Experience has just opened at Hong Kong Disneyland, the first Marvel-based ride to come to an American Disney park will arrive this coming summer, with Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout! Replacing the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA, the ride immerses guests in the world of the Marvel comics characters popularized in the feature film and its upcoming sequel.
With construction currently underway, I took part in an early press preview (complete with protective hardhats!) of what to expect from Mission: Breakout -- as Disney crews worked to quickly overhaul the Tower of Terror into the new ride -- and came away feeling very excited and optimistic about what's in store.
Warner Bros. released a quartet of new thirty-second TV commercials for Kong: Skull Island.
Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts' film stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary and John C. Reilly.
The official synopsis says the story follows "a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong."
Note: this is review covers the entire second season of Voltron: Legendary Defender, which is available to stream on Netflix now. I'll discuss basic plot and character details but avoid getting into spoiler territory.
Netflix is really on a roll lately with their original animation lineup. Last month they delivered 26 episodes of the thoroughly excellent Trollhunters, and now they're back with another 13-episode batch of Voltron: Legendary Defender. Now all we need is for the rumors to come true about Netflix hosting the upcoming third season revival of Young Justice.
With 2016 now in our rear view, and Riverdale about to kick off on the CW, it's time to look back at the ever-expanding crop of live-action comic book-based TV shows from this past year and vote for your favorite!
Netflix continued to grow its Marvel arsenal with a second helping of Daredevil and the debut of Luke Cage, while ABC's Agents of SHIELD rounded its fourth season and Agent Carter sadly bit the dust after two years.
DC's TV-verse kept going strong as Supergirl officially switched over to the CW, Superman entered the mix, and everyone joined forces from all four series -- Supergirl, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and The Flash -- for a giant alien invasion storyline. Meanwhile, Gotham brought the Mad Hatter in for its third season, iZombie continued to be clever and brain-y in its second year and FOX's Lucifer delivered more devilish delights.
WWE Superstars have been paired up with the likes of Scooby-Doo, the Flintstones, and the Jetsons for animated family fare that brings different worlds of entertainment together. But in Surf's Up 2: WaveMania -- available now on DVD and digital platforms -- Triple H, John Cena, the Undertaker, Vince McMahon, Paige and more get transformed into penguins (and an otter) in order to play the extreme surf brigade, Hang 5.
Surf's Up 2: WaveMania features the return of Cody Maverick (Shia La Beouf in the first movie, Adventure Time's Jermey Shada here), Chicken Joe (Jon Heder) and Tank (Diedrich Bader) for an all new adventure that takes out heroes to the hazardous Slaughter Island for a contest of bravery and fortitude.
NBC is looking to make a new comic book TV series based on the Witchblade comic.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has tapped CSI alum Carol Mendelsohn and The Vampire Diaries showrunner Caroline Dries to pen the script and executive produce the show, along with The Vampire Diaries writer and co-executive producer Brian Young. No premiere date for the series has been set yet.
Witchblade is a graphic novel from Marc Silvestri and comics publisher Top Cow. The story follows Sara Pezzini, a homicide detective in San Francisco's Mission District on the hunt for an elusive serial killer while also dealing with police politics.
Last week at the Nintendo Switch event, Capcom announced Ultra Street Fighter II: The The Final Challengers, a updated version of the original Street Fighter II, a game that catapulted the series to huge mainstream awareness in the ‘90s. IGN caught up with Street Fighter series producer Yoshinori Ono at the Nintendo Switch. Ono is one of the most energetic people in the video game industry. His pure enthusiasm for the Street Fighter brand is electric, and in this interview we discussed the making of Ultra Street Fighter II, reconnecting with Street Fighter’s past, and the strive to balance the Switch game for both veterans and newcomers alike.
I was elated when Crunchyroll and Funimation, the two largest English-language streaming anime services, formed a pact last year. New subbed anime would be consolidated on Crunchyroll and Funimation would produce English dubs for select series.
Last week Amazon launched its own competing anime streaming channel, Anime Strike. And in 2016 it struck a deal for exclusive rights to Fuji TV’s Noitamina block, which includes anime like Scum’s Wish and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. We’ve seen Netflix consistently pick up more anime exclusives like Little Witch Academia and Ajin, too.
So the new trailer for Logan has shown us that they’ve got superhero comic books in the X-Men movieverse. And not just that, but they’ve got X-Men comics. Which you’ve gotta figure makes sense; we don’t even have real superheroes in our world, and we’ve got comic books. (Of course comics go well beyond superhero stories in our reality and probably Wolverine’s as well, but that’s a different article…) But here’s the thing: If you take a close look at the comics Hugh Jackman is flipping through in the Logan trailer, it appears that while Professor Xavier’s band of merry mutants have gotten the four-color treatment in that universe, Marvel Comics is nowhere to be found.
J.K. Rowling has responded to the rumors about a potential new Harry Potter movie trilogy.
On Twitter, Rowling confirmed there is currently no plan to make movies based on the latest Harry Potter story/stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
I know a lot of people are looking for reasons to be cheerful today, but there is NO TRUTH to the rumor about a #CursedChild movie trilogy!
— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 20, 2017
Currently, you can catch the Cursed Child in London at the Palace Theatre. There are also plans to potentially bring the show to Broadway beginning in the spring of 2018.
A new report claims some familiar faces and big names are in the mix to play Hal Jordan in Green Lantern Corps., Warner Bros.' big screen version of the DC comic slated for a 2020 release.
According to TheWrap, the studio's "shortlist" to play Jordan includes Ryan Reynolds, Tom Cruise, Community's Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Armie Hammer, and Jake Gyllenhaal. Yes, Ryan Reynolds, who already played Hal Jordan in the 2011 Green Lantern movie that proved a critical and commercial flop, but who has rebounded this year with the smash hit Deadpool.
The site claims, though, that the "casting process is still in the very early stages, and there are no talks with any of the actors as of yet."
