Fox seemingly cancel 'Fantastic Four' sequel

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 2 days, 21 hours ago

Despite previously asserting that the company was totally committed to releasing a sequel to this summer's reboot box office bomb 'Fantastic Four', 20th Century Fox has quietly shelved the June 2017 release date for the sequel.


Despite optimistically announcing a sequel for June 9 2017 - even before the first movie hit cinemas (and bombed soon thereafter), ComicBook.com has revealed that Fox has removed the film from it's star-studded upcoming schedule which includes the likes of 'Independence Day: Resurgence', 'Deadpool', 'X-men: Apocalypse' and 'Alien: Covenant' to name just a few.




Grossing well under it's production budget and rife with tales of behind the scenes problems with director Josh Trank, 'Fantastic Four' enjoys a diabolically bad 10% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

'Lost In Space' series reboot picked up by Netflix

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 4 days, 4 hours ago

A reboot of the classic 1960's sci-fi serial 'Lost in Space' has been greenlit by Netflix after a bidding war by rival networks, according to Deadline Hollywood. Developed by writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the project is the latest reboot of the franchise since the ill-advised 1998 film which featured a charmless Matt LeBlanc as Major Don West, a perfectly cast Gary Oldman as Dr. Zachary Smith and one of the worst CG creatures to ever grace a big budget movie.




The original series, which began broadcasting in 1965 featured the adventures of a family aboard the Jupiter 2 attempting to colonise deep space, before their ship is sabotaged by the evil Dr. Smith in the far-off year 1997 and is well remembered for the Robot's eponymous saying "Danger, Danger Will Robinson!"

'Zoolander 2' trailer brings blue steel back

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week, 1 day ago

It's been nearly 15 years since the release of the original 'Zoolander', but by the looks of the newly released trailer for the comedy sequel, he's still go it. And by 'it', I mean 'the laughs' - take a look.



Reuniting the key cast from the original, including Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell and introducing new blood in Penelope Cruz and Kristen Wiig along with some star-studded cameos from the likes of Justin Bieber and a gender-fluid Benedict Cumberbatch, the sequel to the cult classic comes with some huge expectations that it'll hopefully deliver on.


'Zoolander 2' hits cinemas worldwide in February 2016.

Val Kilmer joins 'Top Gun' sequel cast

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week, 2 days ago

It's been coming for nearly two decades, but 'Top Gun' star Val Kilmer has revealed that the jets are about to take to the sky again in a sequel to the 1986 mega-hit.


I just got offered #topgun2 - not often you get to say "yes" without reading the script..."It's starring Gene...

Posted by Val Kilmer on Monday, November 16, 2015


Tom Cruise is expected to return as fighter pilot Maverick, with a script by Writer Justin Marks. The plot is expected to revolve around the increasing role of drones in aerial combat, following comments made by producer Jerry Bruckherimer. But before you engage the afterburners prematurely, production is still very much in the early stages so don't expect 'Top Gun 2' anytime before 2017.

Warner Bros. developing 'Tomb Raider' film reboot

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week, 2 days ago

After remaining dormant since the release of the 2001 game adaptation 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider' and its 2003 sequel 'The Cradle of Life', Warner Bros. and MGM are partnering on bringing the 'Tomb Raider' franchise back to the big screen, and have just signed a director.




According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio have signed Norwegian film director Roar Uthaug to the project, who's a hot property coming off the back of the disaster drama 'The Wave', with a script likely to be written by 'Transformers 5' writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Angelina Jolie starred as Lara Croft in the original, alongside a pre-James Bond Daniel Craig. Both films were reasonable successes, but fell far short of expectations. There's no word yet on casting for the reboot.


The latest game in the 'Tomb Raider' franchise; 'Rise of the Tomb Raider' has just been released for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles, ahead of a release on PlayStation 4 and PC in coming months.

Universal Pictures developing 'Fast & Furious' cinematic universe

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week, 3 days ago

While the sequel to the fifth highest grossing film of all time; 'Furious 7' is already on the way for 2017, it looks like Universal is preparing to mine the 'Fast and the Furious' franchise even deeper, with a raft of spin-off and prequel films planned.


According to quotes from star Vin Diesel quotes in Variety, the studio is backing developments which will see the franchise grow exponentially explaining "We've written out story lines for various characters. We've been playing with it for a long time. It's a very rich property and we're committed to treating it with a lot of class."




Class is of course something that's infrequently employed in the series, but it does make a lot of money - and to Hollywood, that's all that really matters. Vice-chairman of NBCUniversal, Ron Meyer also hinted that there might be a further tribute to Paul Walker in the next film, saying "Paul won't be in it, but he'll be represented in some form or another but whether his image is in it, I can't tell you yet, but he won't be in the film as a performer, as an actor, the way we did it last time".

Lucasfilm won't show 'Force Awakens' for critics

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week, 6 days ago

In a move which echoes the decision to delay 'The Force Awakens' tie-in novel in order to preserve secrecy, Disney and Lucasfilm won't show the eagerly awaited sequel to critics ahead of the films general release mid-next month.




According to The Wrap, this move will prevent 'The Force Awakens' from being able to participate in three lucrative award ceremonies, including the New York Film Critics Circle, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and won't be shown to any critics before the worldwide premier on December 14th. Distributors that don't hold press screenings for media are generally regarded with raised eyebrows and suspicion that there's a turkey in the wings, but in this case I think its safe to assume that it's simply to close the lid on spoilers for as long as possible.

Cancelled 'Jurassic World' game assets leak

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Nov 12, 2015 11:54 pm

Back in May, the Cryptic Studios Seattle studio was shuttered and their tie-in 'Jurassic World' game was cancelled. The film went on to smash records becoming the third highest grossing film of all time. Now, six months on a bunch of assets from the cancelled game have surfaced, which sadly showed a lot of promise.




The open world game based on Unreal Engine 4 was said to feature Chris Pratt's Owen Grady as the lead, and would have featured several dinosaurs from the 'Jurassic Park' series including Gallimimus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, Spinosaurus and Baryonyx and would have been released to on-demand platforms such as XBLA and PSN. Character renders were available for a time on former Cryptic Studios staffer Nathan Lange's Artstation account, but have since been removed. Some of the assets are still available on NeoGaf.


It's a crying shame too, 'Jurassic Park' video games have never been much good, but the possibilities still so strong. We might just need to wait until 'Jurassic World 2' to get another shot at it.
