Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has big plans for his upcoming monster movie, claiming the film will feature the largest King Kong to ever grace the big screen.
"This is going to be the biggest Kong there's ever been," Vogt-Roberts said during a Warner Bros. presentation at CineEurope (via The Hollywood Reporter). "Not 10 foot or 30 foot, but a 100-foot ape."
The event offered an extended preview of the film that featured clips of Tom Hiddleston as a former British SAS officer, Brie Larson as photojournalist Weaver, and a few other cast members, including Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly.
FX Networks has renewed Archer for three more seasons.
The animated comedy show will come back early next year with Season 8, followed by Seasons 9 and 10 in the future. All three seasons will run eight episodes. The show's latest season wrapped up earlier this month.
“We can’t say enough about what Adam
and the entire Archer team at Floyd County have done to keep this series so insanely funny and vital through seven seasons,” said FX Networks president of original programming Nick Grad in a statement accompanying the announcement.
Things are heating up this July on Netflix as all three Back to the Futures and all four Lethal Weapons will be available to stream, beginning on the first of the month.
And on the Netflix Originals side of things, well, there's really too much to get into here. But most notably, Marco Polo and BoJack Horseman return for new seasons while Stranger Things, starring Winona Ryder, makes its spooky debut.
Plus, there's the first two Beverly Hills Cop movies, Oscar nominee The Big Short, Oscar winner Gladiator, The Sting, Turner and Hooch, and more.
All titles and dates are subject to change
Let's dig in!
Ahead of Wonder Woman's release next June, Warner Bros. has revealed an assortment of costumes and props for its upcoming DC Comics solo film.
The collection, which debuted today at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, includes Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman costume, Chris Pine's outfit for Steve Trevor and the Queen Hippolyta costume worn by Connie Nielsen. Additionally, several props, including a Queen’s guard helmet and shield were on display, as well as an Amazon army helmet, shield, quiver and arrows. Give them a look in the gallery below.
Wonder Woman opens in theaters on June 2, 2017 and wrapped filming just last month. For more on Warner Bros.' highly anticipated DC superhero film, check out these set photos of Steve Trevor's introduction to Diana.
It's time to say goodbye to more titles on Netflix. Leaving the streaming service in July are Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange, comedies like Talladega Nights and Team America: World Police, and all the Star Trek films featuring the original cast - plus the passing the baton film, Star Trek: Generations.
Also saying goodbye to Netflix is Joss Whedon's Serenity and the western classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
The President of the United States will have a certain wonderful quality in Supergirl's second season.
Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman in the DC Comics hero's 1970s TV series, is set to play the president on Supergirl when the show returns for season 2. Carter will appear in multiple episodes in the second season and is currently slated to make her debut in the season's third episode.
Earlier this year, Supergirl producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti said they wanted Carter for this exact role in season 1 but that the scheduling did not work out.
Those who purchase Activision and Sony Pictures' Ghostbusters Ultimate Bundle will receive FireForge Games' upcoming Ghostbusters game and a digital copy of the upcoming Ghostbusters movie, the companies announced today.
It's unclear when the digital download code for the Ghostbusters film will be released. According to the press release, it'll be "delivered at a future date." The Ghostbusters film hits theaters July 15.
Additionally, the Ghostbusters Ultimate Bundle will include DLC featuring "four classic character suits and a bonus trap based on art from the original film," along with two dashboard themes inspired by the game and the movie. The game—and the bundle—will launch July 12 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

In an effort to move more firmly into the zombie mainstream, Dead Rising: Endgame, the sequel to 2015's Dead Rising: Watchtower, leaves behind many of the beloved gimmicks that make its video game namesake so popular with fans. While Endgame succeeds in achieving a more grounded approach to the well-worn zombie genre, it unfortunately does so at the cost of any sense of fun.
The second Crackle-distributed adaptation of the Dead Rising Xbox game franchise (the next installment of which may actually be coming to PS4), Endgame picks up shortly after the events of Watchtower. The first film followed online journalist Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe) as he sneaked into, and eventually back out of, the zombie-infested city of East Mission, Oregon. When Endgame begins, Chase has returned to once again trespass his way into the most poorly guarded military quarantine in history. He and his intrepid crew are there to spy on some kind of shady black ops, the details of which are never made clear. They witness some murderous skullduggery and wind up in the crosshairs of the villainous General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert). Haysbert gets a more well-rounded role here than he did in Watchtower and, like series newcomer Billy Zane, his character even occasionally delves into more or less reasonable justifications for his abhorrent behavior. That's not to say dialogue is Endgame's strong point, but Haysbert's sermons go a long way toward making the series' big bad three-dimensional.
Gotta say, I really enjoyed this week's wrestling product. From Lucha Underground's all-episode "Six to Survive" match to NXT to Money in the Bank to RAW, there's was much enjoyment. Very wrestling. So slobberknocker.
A little quick bit about TNA right here at the start though, as I was planning on making this week's Impact Wrestling the first I'd watched in months. It was following a PPV and it was an episode focused all on the champs defending their titles and that seemed like a good place to pick things up, eyeball-wise. I never got around to watching what I DVR'd though because, apparently, there were major glitches with POP! and they just wound up running the same That '70s Show commercial for two solid hours on a loop with little flashes of Bobby Lashley in between.
I visited the Leavesden set of Justice League last Friday, during which time the invited press interviewed Batman star Ben Affleck, saw Batman's new vehicles and costume, found out who Willem Dafoe is playing, learned Justice League is not a two-part film after all, and even saw some scenes from the DC movie. But that wasn't all we found out while there.
Arrow is adding a familiar face to the cast in Season 5. IGN can exclusively reveal that The Walking Dead alum Chad L. Coleman has been cast in the recurring role of Tobias Church.
Tobias Church is described as "an imposing gangster looking to unite the various criminal enterprises in Star City under his own singular command." The villainous character will first be seen in Season 5's premiere.
Today must be Justice League day, as Warner Bros. and DC Films have let loose their parademons, uh, I mean the set visit reports from the press who were invited to London last week to check out what director Zack Snyder and his team are doing with the film. For all your JL needs, you can: Read our own Jim Vejvoda's coverage of what he saw on set, get a status update on the Batman solo movie script from Ben Affleck, hear about Batman's mission of redemption in JL, learn more about Willem Dafoe's JL character, hear how JL is no longer a two-part movie, and learn who Game of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju is playing.
Roman Reigns has been suspended by the WWE.
According to the WWE, his suspension—due to "his first violation of the company’s talent wellness policy"—is effective immediately and will last for 30 days.
In response to his suspension, Reigns -- whose real name is Joe Anoa`i -- issued the following statement of apology in a post on Twitter:
What do you do when your planet is overrun by aliens and their murderous robot minions? Escape to the moon, of course.
So explained game designer Takahisa Taura when asked about the conspicuous absence of humans in Nier: Automata during a hands-on demo at E3 last week. Unable to deal with overwhelming odds, most homo sapiens have left the fight for Earth to androids created specifically to take on the extraterrestrials' “bio-machines.” It’s a fight to the death, and from what I’ve experienced of Automata’s combat so far, it’s going to be epic.
During the demo I controlled 2B--one of Automata’s main android protagonists--as she took on hordes of mechanical enemies. 2B’s bot-destroying arsenal includes a short sword, a great sword, a pair of massive gauntlets (think the Nemean Cestus from God of War), and a companion pod that hovers above her and acts as both a gun turret and temporary zipline. Each of these upgradable battle instruments is assigned a face or shoulder button, making interchanging them a breeze. As I gleefully smashed, slashed, shot, and dodged my way through wave after wave of malicious automatons, I was happily reminded of both the frantic, fluid combat of Bayonetta (hardly surprising given that Platinum Games is involved in both titles), and the cathartic, arcady button-mashing of God of War. There was an immensely satisfying rhythm to demolishing swarms of robots, but that doesn't mean I could just turn off my brain. Each type of enemy has its own unique properties, and I had stay on my toes and change up tactics if I wanted to stay one step ahead of overwhelming odds.
Batman will have two new vehicles to travel around in and fight Parademons with in next year's Justice League. (Some small SPOILERS ahead.)
I visited the Leavesden set of the Zack Snyder-directed DC movie last Friday, during which time production designer Patrick Tatopoulos took the invited press on a tour of the sets to show off Batman's new rides.
One new Bat-vehicle is the Night Crawler (or, simply, the Crawler), a four-legged vehicle designed to travel through tunnels and scale walls. It has a narrow cockpit, which Batman operates almost like a forklift driver, and four spider-like legs that can puncture through concrete allowing him to scale or break through walls. It also has weaponry, including flamethrowers for toasting Parademons (as we saw in concept art in the production war room). The overall vibe reminded me of those DARPA robot dogs, but big enough to carry a few people and with more insect-like legs.
Does Amazon know something we don't when it comes to the next Deadpool movie? For whatever reason, it has a sale on digital comics featuring the mouthy merc and everyone's favorite Louisiana card shark, as well as some other X-Men. These comics are just $4, some of them contain as many a fifteen issues, and you can read them on any smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
FX has released the official trailer for The Strain: Season 3.
For a sneak peek at the horrible things that await the likes of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and his allies, check out the new trailer -- aptly titled "Fear" -- below.
The 10-episode third season of Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cruse's thriller series sees the residents of New York City struggling to survive as it falls prey to a terrible epidemic with no hope of anyone coming to its rescue.
The Strain: Season 3 premieres on Sunday, August 28 at 10pm. While you patiently wait for its return on FX, check out IGN's review of Season 2.
Civil War 2 has only just gotten underway, but already Marvel is offering a glimpse of what's to come after this latest major crossover. The publisher is planning another relaunch of sorts for this fall, one that will re-use the "Marvel NOW" name from 2012 and offer a new status quo and fresh jumping-on point for readers.
Each day, Marvel is unveiling a new teaser illustrated by Mike Deodato, Jr. and featuring two heroes with the tagline "Divided...". It seems that just as the original Civil War led to an ongoing rift between Marvel's heroes, the impact of this war will continue to be felt moving into 2017. Scroll down to check out these teasers, and keep checking back as we update with new images as they're released.
Madison McLaughlin will be back as Evelyn Sharp in Arrow: Season 5, and will go on to form her own alternate identity as Artemis.
According to Variety, McLaughlin will reprise her role for "multiple episodes" starting with Season 5's second episode.
