Image result for spawn

Jamie Foxx is officially set to star as the titular character in the Spawn reboot film from Blumhouse and Todd McFarlane.

According to Deadline, Foxx finally took on the role after rumors that he was being being courted to play the popular comic book character. McFarlane, who created Spawn and started Image Comics, will be writing and directing the film.

Blumhouse, the company who will be producing the film, tweeted out a photo of McFarlane, Foxx, and studio head Jason Blum to confirm the casting news.

While the movie will be titled after Spawn, he won’t always be the character featured on the screen. In this take on the character, Spawn will be the kind of character that lurks in the shadows, only appearing from time to time in order to capitalize on his terror. Continue reading

Warner Bros. Delays Godzilla Sequel & Six Billion Dollar Man

Warner Bros. Delays Godzilla Sequel & Six Billion Dollar Man

Warner Bros. has announced some major shifts to their upcoming release schedule as they’ve delayed the adaptation of The Six Billion Dollar Man by a full year, pushed Godzilla: King of Monsters back two months to replace Billion‘s slot, moved up the release of Crazy Rich Asians and officially announced the release of their adaptation of The Shining sequel, Doctor Sleep.

The Six Billion Dollar Man has been in the works for over 20 years now, but now has Mark Wahlberg (Patriots Day) attached to star in the lead role. It’s been a tough few weeks for the adaptation of the hit 70’s sci-fi series, first losing its director at the beginning of the month and now the film has been pushed back a year from May 31, 2019 to June 5, 2020.

Because its release date is considered prime real estate, Warner Bros. has chosen to move its long-awaited sequel to the 2014 adaptation of Godzilla to the empty slot. The next entry in the Monster-verse will now debut May 31, 2019 instead of March 22. Michael Dougherty of Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus directs the film which brings together even more Kaiju from Toho to battle the King of the Monsters.

New details of Disney theme parks’ Star Wars land revealed: ‘Galaxy’s Edge’

The Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World have a new name: Galaxy’s Edge.

And this expansion into the galaxy far, far away will come with some additional rides, attractions, and (in Florida) even a Star Wars hotel, where guests will get a costume to wear and can interact with aliens and fellow Jedi and Sith in an immersive story.

The news came at the D23 Expo, where Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney parks and resorts, pulled back the curtain of specific parts of the project, which is slated to open in 2019.

At the D23 Expo two years ago, fans learned that one ride would involve piloting the Millennium Falcon in a dogfight with the forces of the First Order. Now, we have concept art showing what it will look like inside the cockpit.

New video announces Disney’s Star Wars theme park openings in 2019

We’ve known for a while that 2019 would be the year Disney opens its Star Wars theme park attractions, but now the company has released a new video confirming which part of the country will go galactic first.

Disneyland in Anaheim, California, will be the first to open its Galaxy’s Edge attraction to the public in summer 2019, while Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, will follow several months later, in fall 2019.

The new teaser video doesn’t reveal anything else new, but it does animate some of the concept imagery we’ve seen of what the new Disney attractions would look like, complete with TIE fighters screaming through the sky.

To the right, you can see the Millennium Falcon resting on a landing dock. That ride will allow guests to pilot the starship in a dogfight against the First Order.

May the Force be with you — it won’t be long now.

Micheal Keaton is Said to Be Reprising His Role of Vulture in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Sequel


Earlier today we learned that Jake Gyllenhaal was in talks to take on the role of Mysterio in director Jon WattsSpider-Man: Homecoming sequel. Now, thanks to Variety, we know that Michael Keaton will be back in the role of The Vulture!

I wasn’t sure if we’d ever see the character again because it’s rare for a villain to show up more than once in the MCU. But I’m certainly happy to see that this villain will be back! He’s one of my favorites and in my opinion one of the best villains introduced in the MCU.

There’s no word on how big of a role he’ll play in the movie, but the Vulture and Mysterio do have a connection. In Spider-Man: Homecoming Vulture teamed up with Phineas Mason a.k.a. The Tinkerer to help him develop weapons. In the comic book, Mysterio teams up with the Tinkerer to help him develop gadgets to fight Spider-Man.

Maybe the two will find a way to team up against Spider-Man? There are no story details on the film, so all we can do is speculate about what the roles of these characters will be in the story.

Are you happy to hear that Keaton will be back as The Vulture, though?

Toho is Planning a GODZILLA Cinematic Universe and SHIN GODZILLA Won’t Be a Part of It

Toho has seen a lot of success from the Godzilla franchise recently with the anime film series and their last live-action film Shin: Godzilla, which was so freakin’ good!

Well, Toho is now looking at building a Godzilla Cinematic Universe, much in the same way that Marvel built out their universe. Unfortunately, their plans don’t include a sequel to Shin Godzilla, which in my opinion, is one of the best Godzilla movies ever.

While talking to the Japanese outlet Nikkei Style, Keiji Ota, the “Chief Godzilla Officer” at Toho talked about the future of the franchise saying:

Prepare for the Second Part in the New LEGO Movie 2

Prepare for the Second Part in the New LEGO Movie 2 Logo

It was recently announced that Tiffany Haddish will be voicing a new lead character in the movie, joining returning voice cast members, including Chris Pratt as Master Builder Emmet Brickowoski, Elizabeth Banks as Wyldsyde, Will Arnett as Batman, Channing Tatum as Superman and Jonah Hill as Green Lantern.

Animation vet Mike Mitchell (TrollsShrek Forever AfterThe SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water) will direct The LEGO Movie Sequel. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote and directed The LEGO Movie, wrote the first draft of the sequel script based on a story by Lord, Miller, Jared Stern and Michelle Morgan. It was most recently re-written by BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg. In addition, Lord and Miller will serve as producers, alongside returning producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is a sequel to the original 3D computer animated film, which follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

How Bungie pioneered the modern console shooter – with a strategy game built for PC


Famously, Halo: Combat Evolved – the game that changed the landscape of first-person shooters on console forever – began life neither as a first-person shooter, nor on console. I do not consider this a coincidence. But before we get into that, a brief history lesson. The world’s first glimpse of what would eventually evolve to become the Halo we know and love occurred in 1999, a year before Microsoft’s first Xbox console was even formally announced.

Revisiting the grainy VHS footage of its unveiling, it’s surprising just how many of the Haloverse’s iconic sights were established this early on in the life cycle. The trailer opens with a glimpse of the Master Chief’s big orange mug. UNSC soldiers cram themselves into a Warthog’s every last nook and cranny like clowns in a comedy car. As the trailer sweeps the other side of battlefield, we catch our first sighting of Elite soldiers brandishing Energy Swords. Classic, familiar scenes that are burned into our memories forever, and play out to the tune of something even more recognisable: Halo’s booming orchestral score, practically unchanged note for note from the version we still hum today.
