Rewrites are common in filmmaking, especially for big blockbuster films, where there are so many moving parts that filmmakers sometimes need to recalibrate to keep things focused — which makes this rumor about Star Wars: Episode VIII hardly surprising. Rumor has it that Rian Johnson’s screenplay may be undergoing a few minor rewrites as a response to the reactions to The Force Awakens, and while that sentence may trigger an eyebrow raise, you should know that this is totally a good thing — if true.
American filmmakers take note: this is how you make a disaster movie. After playing a handful of international festivals last year, the first official trailer for Norwegian disaster drama The Wave has rolled in, promising a film that’s not overly concerned with the spectacle as much as the people said spectacle is actually affecting. Similar to Juan Antonio Bayona’s impressively riveting 2007 film The Impossible, The Wave does what Roland Emmerich and his acolytes are no longer interested in doing: letting us get to know and care about the people whose lives are about to be destroyed by a 300-foot wave.
Warner Bros. has been revealing some new promotional materials ahead of tonight’s big Dawn of the Justice League event on The CW, which will offer a new Suicide Squad trailer, our first look the united Justice League and maybe even a sneak peek or two at Wonder Woman (fingers crossed). Until then, WB has debuted the official logo for Diana’s upcoming film, and it looks very…metal. Like, literally metal, but also maybe sort of figuratively metal?
In case you needed a bit of a cry today, J.K. Rowling has taken to Twitter to share the one little piece of secret information she shared with the late, great actor Alan Rickman to help him better portray Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films. As Rickman previously revealed a few years back, Rowling gave him a piece of advice to help him better understand the complexities of his character, who is far more than the shrewd, dodgy potions master he first appears to be.
What you see above is a new TV spot for Deadpool, which promises all the violence and mayhem and profanity that should come with a proper adaptation of the beloved comic book character. Unfortunately for fans in China, it’s that content in particular that’s keeping the film from hitting theaters in their country.
HBO Now is good for many things: for catching up on those shows you’ve been missing, for watching films exclusively airing on the premium network (including pretty much all the Police Academy movies, if that’s your thing, sure), for using your parents’ password to take advantage of their disposable income… But there’s something else the streaming service has that you won’t find anywhere else: a seven-hour cut of the first two Godfather films, edited in chronological order. If you have the day off, now might be a good time to indulge in such a thing.
As expected, there’s lots of big news coming from Netflix ahead of their panel at TCA ’16, and in addition to finally renewing Marvel’s Jessica Jones for Season 2, the streaming service has set a return date for Orange Is the New Black Season 4. We’re sure to learn more about the coming season once the panel commences, but expect our return to Litchfield to resolve a few of those lingering cliffhangers.
And in distinctively other superhero news, Matthew Vaughn’s Flash Gordon movie is picking up a bit of steam. After years of failed development, the project finally started to get somewhere when Vaughn signed on to direct last year, and although a couple of writers have already taken a pass at the screenplay, the hiring of I Am Legend and Oldboy scribe Mark Protosevich may prove a bit more fruitful.
Ever since Marvel and Sony announced plans to collaborate on the rebooting of Spider-Man, the studios have been playing things pretty close to the vest. Tom Holland is set to make his debut as the web-slinging hero in Captain America: Civil War, but fans have been curious about how Peter Parker will make his debut, and what exactly attracts him to this major conflict. A new rumor offers a few potential details about Spider-Man and his relation to the MCU, but as always, you should approach this one with a little skepticism.
If you’re a fan of Ronda Rousey, then you’re undoubtedly familiar with her “Do Nothing Bitches” speech from an interview the MMA fighter gave that’s collected over 3 million hits on YouTube and generated a clothing line. Rousey’s whole DNB thing is so popular that it inspired Sisters scribe Paula Pell to write an entire film based on it, with Tina Fey set to co-star with Rousey in what could be the most delightful odd-coupling in years.
Reports began to surface this evening via social media that a trailer for Bad Robot’s upcoming mystery project is attached to screenings of Michael Bay’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The film is titled 10 Cloverfield Lane, and while many suspect it’s a secret Cloverfield sequel, there is some evidence to support that this not quite true, including a statement from J.J. Abrams himself. So what is 10 Cloverfield Lane, exactly?
Earlier this week, George Miller was quoted as saying that he was done with the Mad Max franchise, which came as a shock to many, especially since Miller has done nothing but talk up Mad Max sequels since before Fury Road even hit theaters. But as several suspected, Page Six had their story wrong, which just goes to show that you should always take their reports with a GIANT boulder of salt.
