Paul Feig is just going to make his own Dark Universe

A Depp-less version of The Invisible Man is already in the works , and now Paul Feig is digging into Universal’s monster toybox for his own monument to the failed potential of the Dark Universe. According to Deadline, Feig is going to write and direct a movie called Dark Army that is somehow...

Nick Jonas and Roland Emmerich go to war in the new trailer for Midway

Nick Jonas and Roland Emmerich go to war in the new trailer for Midway

One of the best things about World War II movies is that the stories from the war will always be relevant enough to keep retelling, and there will always be new generations of hot, young Hollywood actors to put in 1940s-era costumes and in CG airplanes. This time around, we’ve got Nick Jonas, Ed Skrein, Luke Evans, Darren Criss, Patrick Wilson, Aaron Eckhart, Dennis Quaid, Woody...

Netflix's Umbrella Academy gets some new members for season 2

Netflix's Umbrella Academy gets some new members for season 2

Today, Netflix announced three new cast members coming to the second season of its adaptation of The Umbrella Academy, but none of the characters they’re playing are actually from the original comic. That’s understandable on the one hand, since the first season flew through a whole lot of the source material, but the character descriptions that Netflix shared also seem suspiciously normal for...

Apple is making a Ghostwriter reboot that sounds nothing like Ghostwriter

The new triclops iPhone and the Jason Momoa series See got the headlines before this, but they weren’t the only things Apple announced today. As reported by Deadline, Apple also announced a “reimagined” version of the ‘90s kids mystery show Ghostwriter, but based on the premise of the show, they’re actually leaning much harder on the “reimagined” thing than the average nostalgia-baiting...

Sorry, 'shippers: Robert Pattinson's Batman will never meet Joaquin Phoenix's Joker

Here's a trailer for See, the weird sci-fi show coming to Apple TV+ at launch

Today, Apple announced a new iPhone that is different in some way than the last iPhone (beyond the fact that it has three cameras, we assume), but that announcement also came alongside the reveal that the Apple TV+ streaming service will launch on November 1 at $5 a month.

James Cameron says "people need to wake the fuck up" about climate change

James Cameron says "people need to wake the fuck up" about climate change

Everyone thought it was ridiculous to make a bunch of Avatar sequels when very few people have fond memories of the original, but maybe the reason James Cameron was so desperate to make these movies happen is that he realized nobody actually paid attention to the first one. See, the military people were bad guys, because they wanted the Unobtanium at any cost—even if it meant destroying a...

New Watchmen featurette actually says what the show is about

HBO has released a few teasers for its Watchmen sequel/remix show at this point, giving us a chance to make some guesses about how it’s adapting and expanding Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ original comic, but now the premium cable network has shared a behind-the-scenes featurette that straight-up explains what’s going on in the show. There’ll be some twists and turns, certainly, but...

Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu responds to controversy over writers' pay disparity

Last week , the general public learned that Crazy Rich Asians co-writer Adele Lim had dropped out of working on the film’s upcoming sequel late last year after she discovered that the other co-writer—white man Peter Chiarelli—was being paid nearly 10 times more than she was for the same job. The justification (according to The Hollywood Reporter) was apparently that the two writers were being...

Hideo Kojima embraces self-parody with Death Stranding mode for those who just want to watch a movie

Hideo Kojima embraces self-parody with Death Stranding mode for those who just want to watch a movie

The Metal Gear Solid series was fairly infamous for its many extremely long cutscenes that—at least in the case of Metal Gear Solid 4—sometimes involved players taking their hands off of the controller for hours at a time. To be fair, series creator Hideo Kojima was trying to wrap up the most unexpectedly profound and prophetic saga in video game history, and there were a lot of clones, a...
