Before a fan screening of Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 3D in Hollywood this evening, new Terminator director Tim Miller and series creator/producer James Cameron revealed that Terminator 2 star Linda Hamilton will return to the franchise as Sarah Connor. The Hollywood Reporter says that Miller and Cameron are working on a new trilogy of films
with a writers room that includes David Goyer (Dark Angel), Charles Eglee, and Josh Friedman, who created the Terminator spin-off The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
This is our first look at Stranger Things star David Harbour all decked out as Hellboy in the upcoming reboot and He looks awesome! You won’t hear any complaints from me about the design of Hellboy in this movie. You’ll find another image below.
The film is said to be a much closer adaptation of Mike Mignola‘s amazing comic and it also stars Ian McShane asProfessor Broom, Milla Jovovich as the Nimue, Blood Queen, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida, a witch who has decided that the Blood Queen’s wrath has gone on for too long, and Daniel Dae Kim will play Major Ben Daimio.
A reboot of the early ’80s TV series The Greatest American Hero has gotten a put pilot commitment from ABC, according to Deadline. The half-hour, single-camera comedy will feature Meera, an Indian-American woman as the lead. The reboot comes to us from Fresh Off the Boat writer/producer Rachna Fruchbom and Nahnatchka Khan’s Fierce Baby. 20th Century Fox TV will co-produce with ABC Studios. Fruchbom will write the script. She’ll produce with Mandy Summers from Fierce Baby as well as the original show producer Steven J. Cannell’s daughter, television director Tawnia McKiernan.
Meera will reportedly be a 30-year-old Indian-American woman from Cleveland, “whose talents include tequila drinking and karaoke and not much else. Then some aliens entrust her with a super suit to protect the planet, and the world has never been in more unreliable hands.”
Based on the ABC-TV series which ran from 1980 to 1983, The Greatest American Hero follows a nebbishy teacher who becomes a reluctant superhero after extraterrestrials give him a special suit with powers he can barely understand or control when he loses its instruction manual. The original stars William Katt, Robert Culp and Connie Sellecca. The LEGO Movie and former Han Solo movie directors were attached to a reboot of The Greatest American Hero back in 2014.
What do you guys think of the idea of a reboot of The Greatest American Hero with a female lead? Did you watch the original series back in the early ’80s with William Katt? Is the theme song now stuck in your head? We want to hear from you! Leave us your thoughts in the comments below
Director M. Night Shyamalan has started development on his upcoming film Glass, which will continue the stories he started with Unbreakable and Split. It’s pretty exciting to see that Shyamalan is actually able to make this happen! That twist ending at the end of Split when we saw Bruce Willis as David Dunn sitting in the coffee shop completely floored me! That was so freakin’ cool!
So the live-action Ghost In The Shell movie came and went, and with it, the dream of seeing a high-quality Hollywood produced live-action anime, such as Akira or Battle Angel, took another big step backwards. Fans and critics were, for the most part, on the same page, as the film only made $40M in its first month in the US, and it’s Rotten Tomatoes score sits (at the time of this writing), at 46%. So the immediate reaction is to say that this movie is a bust. But that may or may or be the case. In fact, I am positive that in a few years, future critics and audiences will react more favorable to this film. Continue reading →
Last week we learned that The Karate Kid was getting a prequel series called Cobra Kai. The series takes place 30 years after the events of the original film and Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are reprising their role of Daniel Larusso and Johnny Lawrence! This series could seriously end up being one of the best things ever!
The series was previously described as revolving “around a down and out Johnny who, seeking redemption, reopens the infamous Cobra Kai dojo. It reignites his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel, who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita).” The show is also said to follow the duo “addressing demons from their past and present frustrations — through (what else?) karate.”
Last month Sylvester Stallone teased the possible return of Dolph Lundgren‘s Ivan Drago in the sequel to Creed. He posted a few images on Instagram, one of which featured Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan), the son of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), facing off against Drago. That image came with the caption:
Here’s a chance to stretch your imagination … HISTORY WILL ALWAYS REPEAT ITSELF IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER, JUST GOT TO BE READY! … Sins of the Father…. #creed2 # agentnickyc #rockybalboa Continue reading →
30 years after The Karate Kid was released, we are actually getting a new sequel in the form of a new series called Cobra Kai. The best part is… Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are reprising their roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence! How freakin’ cool is that!? I don’t think any of the fans of the original film saw this coming!
The series is described as a half-hour comedy with heart, and the story is set 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. It “revolves around a down and out Johnny who, seeking redemption, reopens the infamous Cobra Kai dojo. It reignites his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel, who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita).” The show is also said to follow the duo “addressing demons from their past and present frustrations — through (what else?) karate.”
Comic Books have been a huge hit with films recently. We have so many movies based on comic books coming out. At the same time, we also have seen many comic books based on movies being released. One of those ideas comes from a Ghostbusters comic that Ivan Reitman is saying would make a good movie. It looks like everything is going full circle.
Yesterday, it was announced by producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions and MGM that 007 will return to U.S. theaters for the 25th instalment of the James Bond franchise on November 8, 2019.
