FX sure does love Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story series because they just renewed it for a tenth season ahead of the show’s eighth season premiere. This shouldn't come as a surprise as they've been able to keep the series fresh and interesting over the years.
There's no information on what Season 10 will entail. Hell, we're still learning new information about Season 8, which has been titled American Horror Story: Apocalypse. This series has been all over the place so it's hard to even speculate on what Season 10 would entail.
All we know about Apocalypse is that it's set in the not-too-distant future and creator Ryan Murphypreviously revealed that it would be a crossover with Murder House (Season 1) and Coven (Season 3). He also said, "It’s a season unlike anything we’ve done because there’s a big hook to it. There’s a huge thing that happens in episode 5.” The series will also include the character Michael Langdon a.k.a the Anti-Christ. He is the biological grandson and the adopted son of Constance Langdon (Jessica Lange), and the birth child of Tate Langdon (Evan Peters) and Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton).
The cast also includes Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd and Adina Porter. Joan Collins has also been cast and will play the grandmother of Evan Peters’ character. Peters is said to play a "comedic hairdresser." UnReal star Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and Kyle Allen of The Path have also joined the horror anthology as guest stars. Cody Fern will play Michael Langdon.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse will premiere on FX on September 12th.
I know that Hook isn't Steven Spielberg's best movie, but chances are, if you grew up with it, you probably love it. Hook is one of those films that will always hold a special place in my heart. Hell, out of all of the Peter Pan films that have been made it is one of the best!
With Winnie the Pooh coming out this weekend, Screen Junkies have released an Honest Trailer for Hook because of the similarities in the stories and the fact that it focuses on sad middle-aged men who are forced into a situation that make them remember how happy their childhoods used to be and inspire them to be better husbands and fathers.
The Honest Trailer for Hook doesn't necessarily bash the movie, it just makes amusing observations like how this is Steven Spielberg's least favorite Steven Spielberg movie.
Another cast member has been announced for the live-action Dora the Explorer movie with Madeleine Madden (Picnic and Hanging Rock). Madden’s role has not been revealed, and I honestly have no idea who she could be. Maybe Backpack? I’ll be honest, I’m still surprised that this movie is being made.
Madden is joining Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbesz, Micke Moreno, and Adriana Barraza. Danielle Sanchez-Witzel and Nicholas Stoller are writing the script that James Bobin will use to direct the film. Michael Bay is also producing.
Dora the Explorer currently has a release date of August 2, 2019.
Even before Capcom officially launched Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 this June, fans have been wondering on which Resident Evil game Capcom will remake next. The latest financial report of the Japanese publisher suggests that the company is extremely confident that RE2 Remake will be an instant hit, but of course, its performance is vital for any future remakes.
Capcom was asked by an investor about RE2’s expected sales and the possibility of future remakes, the publisher responded and said that they are anticipating Resident Evil 2 to be one of the company’s major releases for the fiscal year and expects the remake to be in the “million-seller” level. Capcom also explained that they are very much open to pursuing similar projects in the future.
“Further, regarding remakes and re-releases of titles in our back catalog, we expect to explore these further with a variety of properties as a part of our strategy to utilize our library of IP.”
Capcom also shared details on Resident Evil 2’s cost and expected profits by talking about the game’s overall scope.
“While the base story and setting did exist, we have made the most of our cutting-edge game development environment to re-create the content, and are developing it with a budget appropriate for a Resident Evil title targeting the global market.”
The performance of RE2 Remake when it is released on January next year will play a pivotal role to any future remakes whether it be part of the Resident Evil franchise or any other series in Capcom’s library of games. However, the title that has the highest possibility of being remade is most likely Resident Evil 3, which gives Capcom the opportunity to take advantage of the current hype for classic Resident Evil games. Of course, past titles such as Dino Crisis is also a great contender.
In the end, it all boils down to how fans will receive RE2Remake. However, judging by the reception at E3 and the gameplay footages that were released, it seems that Capcom may be hitting a gold mine here.
By now everyone knows that Tom Cruise isn't afraid to do his own stunts in his movies, even if they put his life at risk. That includes his latest chapter in the Mission: Impossible franchise. Cruise literally put his life and limb at risk in all of the stunts he performed in Mission: Impossible - Fallout, even breaking one of his legs during one of those dangerous stunts. It's clear he's not afraid to make the Impossible, possible. And that's exactly what he did for 2,000 lucky people in Norway.
Cruise hosted a special screening at the top of Preikestolen, a very popular cliff in Norway that draws thousands of tourists every year and has a nearly 2,000-foot drop all the way down to jagged rocks down below. On his social media accounts, Cruise posted this incredible photo that shows a large crowd of people huddled under a movie screen at the top of a cliff that looks like its straight out of The Lord of the Rings. I just so happens to be that this is the very same cliff that Cruise fights the main villain in the final scene of Fallout.
But if you're bummed you missed out on such an incredible cinematic experience you should know that everyone had to hike for 4 hours before they could even watch the movie. You can see Cruise's post below.
If you're a fan of Godzilla, especially the old-school films, you've got to watch this fantastically made retro Japanese 1964-style fan trailer for Legendary Pictures' Godzilla: King of the Monsters. This awesomely captures the tone of the classic films. It gives the upcoming film an old grainy film look and it also includes the sound effects, music and dialogue from the old Godzilla films as well. Some of you might even think that this trailer is better and more entertaining than the real one! Check it out!
The more Tom Cruise runs in a movie, the better it does at the box office. That's not a bold or incorrect statement, that's Science with a capital "S." Rotten Tomatoes did the math, and concluded that films where Tom Cruise runs do much better at the box office than ones where he doesn't at all, and it's a hilarious coincidence that you have to see to believe. For example, here's his top ten films and the distance he runs in all of them:
Need even more evidence? Tom Cruise does zero running in Valkyrie which, regardless of what you think of it, didn't do to well at the box office. Maybe Tom is in on some secret we're not all aware of? Do you think it's a coincidence or there's something to Tom Cruise running that makes his films so successful?
Raise your hand if you’re wondering what took Thanos so long to actually do anything after announcing at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, “Fine, I’ll do it myself.” Now that everyone is raising their hand, Stephen McFeely, one of the screenwriters for Avengers: Infinity War tries to explain this in the commentary of the film.
It makes some sense when you think about it. Thanos is a man with a purpose. He doesn’t care about having power to have power. He sees the Infinity Stones as a means to an end and not just some power boost. That being said, do you think the catalyst for everything was buried too deep or were you fine with it?
Noah Hawley's Fargo is easily one of the best and most entertaining series on TV and some great news details have just surfaced for Season 4!
FX officially announced Season 4 and revealed that it will star Chris Rock and be set in the 1950s in Kansas City, Missouri. As a fan of Chris Rock is so cool to learn that he will be joining Fargo! This is going to be an awesome project for him and you can read the crazy story details that have been revealed below:
In 1950, at the end of two great American migrations — that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the US at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York, Chicago — and African Americans who left the south in great numbers to escape Jim Crow and moved to those same cities — you saw a collision of outsiders, all fighting for a piece of the American dream. In Kansas City, Missouri, two criminal syndicates have struck an uneasy peace. One Italian, one African American. Together they control an alternate economy — that of exploitation, graft and drugs. This too is the history of America. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons.
Chris Rock plays the head of one family, a man who — in order to prosper — has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must in turn raise his son’s enemy as his own. It’s an uneasy peace, but profitable. And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes. It’s a story of immigration and assimilation, and the things we do for money. And as always, a story of basically decent people who are probably in over their heads. You know, Fargo.
That sounds like it could end up being one of the best seasons yet! That's such an intriguing story. Hawley and Rock are said to be extremely excited about this season. When talking about the series and the Kansas City setting, FX CEO John Landgraf said:
“I think it snows in Kansas City. You discover in the third cycle [of Fargo] a book Tales of True Crime in the Upper Midwest. Of course these are tall tales, not actually true crimes. This could be a show basing a cycle on each of the chapters of that book. What Missouri is is midwestern. I don’t know if you call it upper midwestern. What’s fascinating to me about history is we think of crime as being Las Vegas or New York. In fact, Kansas City was the center of power of organized crime in America during this period of time before Las Vegas became an important hub. A lot of the capital for Las Vegas came from Kansas City. The tentacles of these organizations in Kansas City stretch out into the midwest. Now I think he’s going more to the source.”
What do you think of the plot for Fargo Season 4 and the fact that Chris Rock will star in it?
Thanks to our friends at /Film, we have some new detail on the sixth Die Hard movie, which will be both a prequel and sequel. Producer Len Wisemen (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard) has been hard at work developing the film.
Up until this point, all we knew about the movie is that it would be set in 1979, when McClane was fighting crime as a New York City cop. It will show how he "became a die hard kind of guy." Bruce Willis is set to reprise his role. It's also explained that the movie will jump back and forth between the past and the present. The movie is aiming for a Die Hard: Year One type of feel, in reference to Frank Miller’s comic book Batman: Year One. The title of the movie will be Die Hard: Year One.
While talking to /Film, Wiseman opened up and shared a few details on the film that I think fans of the Die Hard franchise will find interesting. Here is what was revealed:
A young Holly Gennero will be featured in the flashback scenes. Maybe we'll get to see how Holly and John met.
We may see a present-day reunion of John and Holly as well, which would be really cool! We haven't seen them together since Die Hard 2.
Wiseman won't make the mistake of making another PG-13 Die Hard movie. They'll make sure to go hard action R again.
Bruce Willis will help in the process of choosing who will play a young version of John McClane. Those are going to be some big shoes to fill.
They will make sure that the script is finished and ready to go before they give the film a release date and start shooting this next time around. Wiseman explains:
"Die Hard’s going to be happening fairly soon. No dates. I’ve been asked about dates before and I’m always wrong. The date is when the script is right which is when we all want to go. The script has taken quite a long time. I want it to be right, as everybody does. The truth is we started prepping Live Free or Die Hard when the script was not ready. That process of working on the script as we were shooting the movie is not the funnest thing in the world to do. We pulled it together but nobody wants to go through that again."
Seems like the smart thing to do. It's always crazy to me that studios start shooting films without a solid completed script ready to go. When talking about the importance of the script, Wiseman says:
"I think it’s also more so than any other time, [the script]’s very important. We’ve seen it all. We’ve seen a lot. I think even, say, 10 years ago, I think studios in general were a little bit more willing to put movies like that, franchise movies into production with a sense of ‘we’ll continue to work on the script.’ I think that attitude has changed."
I'm actually pretty excited about seeing what comes Die Hard: Year One. I'm a huge fan of the Die Hard franchise and I recently attended a 30th anniversary screening of the original film at Nakatomi Tower, which was really cool!
I would love it if this next film dove back into the same hardcore gritty tone and style that we loved about the earlier films. The past two Die Hard films that were made are pretty forgettable.
The big question is... who would you like to see take on the role of a young John McClane? If it was Marvel, they would just use Bruce Willis and de-age him digitally.
