Guillermo del Toro Shooting Small, Black and White Film Before ‘Pacific Rim 2′

Cinephile-favorite filmmaker Guillermo del Toro  just recently announced that Pacific Rim 2 is set for a 2017 release, and he’s in post-production for Crimson Peak, but that doesn’t mean that’s all he has on his plate. In a conversation with Collider, del Toro revealed he’s planning a new piece that will be filmed before the massive Pacific Rim sequel.

The film will be a very bizarre, small, black and white production. Considering he does a remarkable job doing just that in his large, colorful films like Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy, this new one should be something else. Summarizing …

Alex Turner and Miles Kane Writing 1960s Film Inspired by ‘X-Men’

If you’ve ever been watching X-Men and thought, “Boy, I would love to hear Alex Turner’s voice singing over this scene,” today is your lucky day.

According to NME, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and Miles Kane, aka The Last Shadow Puppets, are writing an X-Men-inspired film that’s set in the 1960s. “It’s gonna have a sort of X-Men kind of vibe and sort of set in the ’60s, but I can’t give any more away than that,” said Kane. Neither of the two will star in the movie, he added, “but we may have a little cameo.”…

‘Paranormal Activity 5′ Pushed to 2016

For better or for worse, some horror films see more sequels than others. Paranormal Activity is one of those. It seems its creators, however, have found themselves in a dry well.

When Paramount Pictures revealed they were planning to release Paranormal Activity 5, they admitted they were having trouble finding an innovative, interesting new take. The film was pushed from an October 2013 release date to October 2014. Now with only four months until that goal, Paramount Pictures have pushed the release date back yet again. According to EMEA Edward Ryan, the fifth official film in the franchise will …

Watch the Trailer for Elliott Smith Documentary ‘Heaven Adores You’

Last year we took a moment to remember one of music’s most important icons, Elliott Smith, on the tenth anniversary of his passing with his best songs. With a mysterious personality and an incredible knack for songwriting, Smith’s work soon left Portland and became mainstream after “Miss Misery” (Good Will Hunting) got a Best Original Song Oscar nomination in 1998. Now, years later, Smith’s legacy will be covered in Nikolas Rossi’s new documentary, Heaven Adores You.

The Kickstarter-funded film is an “intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith” from his birth to …

‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel in the Works

It’s been two decades since the 1993 hit Mrs. Doubtfire first hit screens, and now, seemingly out of nowhere, it’s going to get a sequel.

Director Chris Columbus and Robin Williams will return and Elf writer David Berenbaum will be penning the script. The original film saw Williams, a struggling actor and newly divorced father, take on the persona of a Scottish nanny named Euphegenia Doubtfire in order to be closer to his children. It’s pretty hard to forget the burning fat suit and tire-squashed face mask that helped the film pull in $219 million domestically, $222 million internationally, a …

‘Jurassic World’ Has Found Its Villain

As if we needed another reason to be excited about the biggest film of 2015…

First came the promise of new, gorgeously designed dinosaurs on the big screen. We were sold. Then came news that Star Lord himself, Mr. Chris Pratt, would be starring. Again, we were sold. Now, the Jurassic World production has revealed that Vincent D’Onofrio will portray the film’s villain. In the words of perhaps the wisest internet meme based off a Matt Groening cartoon of all time:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt And Seth Rogen To Co-Star In New Movie

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen made moviegoers everywhere ball their eyes out when Gordon-Levitt was fighting cancer in 50/50. The two are teaming up again, and this time they will star in a (probably) less dramatic comedy. 50/50 was directed by Jonathan Levine, and he will once again take the reins for the currently untitled Christmas film.

The two men will be portraying two of three friends (a third actor has not been cast yet) who have an annual tradition of going out on the town on Christmas Eve. There are unfortunately no other details available, but we will …

Anytime Quentin Tarantino begins to make progress on a new project, the floodgates holding rumors and gossip at bay open wide.

Chucky Will Be Returning In Seventh ‘Child’s Play’ Film

Some stories are too good to just let die, and for many fans that would include franchises like the one and only Child’s Play, featuring everyone’s favorite murderous doll, Chucky. The latest edition to the series was the sixth film, Curse Of Chucky, which was released just a few months ago. I haven’t seen it yet, but apparently the ending left movie goers with questions, which prompted the director of the movie, Don Mancini, to tweet a confirmation that there will be another Chucky movie in our future.

You can read Mancini’s tweet by taking a look below …
