Space Jam 2 Delayed Again

The coranavirus outbreak in the United States has already led to a barrage of movies getting delayed – and Space Jam 2 could be next. Space Jam 2 had been stuck in development hell for over two decades before it finally got moving last year, with those obstacles dating back to an early version of Space Jam 2 commissioned directly after the original Space Jam‘s 1996 release. That iteration of Space Jam 2 died once Michael Jordan refused to join the project. Other versions of Space Jam 2, including one titled Skate Jam which would’ve starred Tony Hawk, similarly went nowhere.

However, Space Jam 2 got brought back to life once legend LeBron James signed on to star on as himself in the lead role...

Onward Wins Box Office

Onward Wins Box Office.  Pixar’s Onward won the weekend box office with a $40 million debut. The domestic numbers for the animated movie are in the lower realm of the early estimates, which had it around $45 million. Reasoning behind the muted response is unclear, but there are many people who believe the coronavirus (COVID-19) is to blame. As for the global numbers, those aren’t too stellar either. Onward has made $68 million from 47 territories as of this writing, despite getting positive reviews.

Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man continues to be a hit at the box office. The horror thriller took the second position this weekend after earning $15.1 million. The movie has earned nearly $100 million globally since hitting theaters last week. Ben Affleck‘s The Way Back debuted at number three w...

Joker Has Some Hidden Details

Joker is one of those films that, even though we saw it coming, still shook the movie world and the world at large by storm. This film from The Hangover director Todd Phillips was a crossover phenomenon. It was the anti-superhero movie about a character that is totally unredeemable. However, that didn’t stop viewers from embracing Joaquin Phoenix‘s turn as Arthur Fleck, the man who would eventually become the Joker. So dense was this movie, so layered was it with themes and ideas about society, mental illness, and how we treat people that are different, that it often doesn’t play like a film in the DC canon...

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Sonic the Hedgehog‘s release date of February 28 in China is officially delayed by Paramount, due to the mounting concerns over the coronavirus. The 2020 film is based on the extremely popular video game franchise produced by Sega. Sony Pictures tried to develop a film adaptation back in 2014 but was unsuccessful, and Paramount acquired the rights in 2017. The film stars Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as the voice of Sonic, along with James Marsden (Westworld) and Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty) as the villainous Dr. Ivo Robotnik/Dr. Eggman, Sonic’s arch nemesis.

The film got off to a rocky start after the first trailer received supremely negative reactions to Sonic’s design, and the film was delayed three months in order to fully redesign the character...

‘Knives Out’ Sequel Details

On yesterday’s Oscars red carpet, Rian Johnson clued viewers in on some more details regarding his Knives Out sequel. The follow up to the whodunit mystery was officially announced by Lionsgate last Thursday. This time around, Johnson plans to keep Daniel Craig in the role of Southern detective Benoit Blanc, but the rest of the cast will be new. All bets are off. It’s a totally new cast,” Johnson told Variety.

Johnson is excited to bring together another star-studded ensemble, many of which were most likely on the same red carpet. Says Johnson: “I want everybody! Just point. Throw a rock on this red carpet and you’ll hit someone that I want in the movie.” Praised for its elevation of classic crime thriller tropes, Knives Out was a critical and c...

Rian Johnson has already said that, in addition to an updated cast and storyline, the Knives Out follow-up will also incorporate a new location, so, why not somewhere like Hawaii? Or, to be more specific, a tropical, solitary island on which Benoit Blanc is trapped with a murderer and a slew of suspicious vacationers? It would be a fun change of pace to set a whodunnit in a setting that is, not only warmer, but a unique juxtaposition to your typical murder mystery, especially when you considering how nothing bad is ever supposed to happen in paradise.
Rian Johnson’s follow-up to Knives Out won’t be a direct sequel but a totally new mystery for Daniel Craig‘s detective character, Benoit Blanc. Craig starred alongside a ridiculously talented cast that included

Gretel & Hansel

Gretel & Hansel

Although its most obvious source of inspiration is the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale, Gretel & Hansels storybook slow burner also takes plenty of cues from other movies in the horror genre.

Gretel & Hansel follows two siblings in their attempt to survive in the woods. Gretel (Sophia Lillis) is forced to act as a surrogate mother figure to her younger brother Hansel (Samuel Leakey). When they come upon Holda’s (Alice Krige) overly lavish home, the witch tries to tempt Gretel down a different, darker path.

Gretel & Hansel follows the beats of the original fairy tale quite closely. Director Oz Perkins uses careful lingering shots to convey the darker themes broached in this horror reimagining. With its slow burn bent, Gretel & Hansel joins the annals of folk horror, pulling from a number...

Birds Of Prey

We’ve been waiting and waiting, and we finally got some reviews of Birds of Prey, featuring Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad spun off into a totally new DC Comics movie. And, surprise surprise, the reviews are very positive.

Although some of the reviews were a bit mixed, most of the early tweets out of the first press screening call it an “absolute blast” with a great soundtrack, a memorable Margot Robbie performance, and some surprisingly intense violence. Several people compared it to the Deadpool movies, both in terms of the tone and the fact that it’s rated R (!) and breaks the fourth wall.

Birds of Prey opens in theaters on February 7. We’ll have our own film critic’s full review of the movie in the middle of next week...

Buried in a Hollywood Reporter article about plans for a Bad Boys 4 (which, okay, fine) is a much more interesting bit of news. Chris Bremner, who is working on Bad Boys 4 and co-wrote the new Bad Boys For Life, is also writing a screenplay for National Treasure 3 — which is urgent and important and hugely exciting.

National Treasure is, of course, the two-film series of the 2000s starring Nicolas Cage as Benjamin Franklin Gates, a treasure hunter who gets mixed up in various adventures involved wild conspiracies and famous bits of American history. Part Indiana Jones, part Da Vinci Code, with more than a dash of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, both of the produced films — 2004’s National Treasure and 2007’s National Treasure: Book o...

Come on, the man hung off the side of a plane and scaled the Burj Khalifa for Mission: Impossible. Even Will Smith took inspiration from the actor. In the words of the Bad Boys For Life star:

But, seriously: How does Tom Cruise do it? The actor is 57-years-old and always pulling off the most mind-blowing stunts! Of course, he’s had time to work up to it throughout the six Mission: Impossible movies and other stunt-heavy flicks, such as learni...
