We finally got that 'Beauty and the Beast'/'Harry Potter' mashup

February 9, 2017

Considering they cast Hermione as Belle, it was only a matter of time before we got this mashup with Harry Potter. Although this isn't just some clever editing of The Beauty and the Beast trailer with Harry Potter footage. Somebody put in the effort to digitally add in Voldemort to the scenes, which is fine, but kind of feels like cheating when it comes to doing these mashup videos.

The official teaser trailer for 'It Comes at Night' is okay

February 8, 2017


This is the official teaser trailer for Trey Edward Shults new horror film It Comes at Night starring Joel Edgerton, Riley Keough, and Christopher Abbott. It's exactly how a horror teaser should be: moody, creepy, and doesn't reveal too many plot points. And they keep saying "It's okay", but I get the feeling that it is very much not okay.

Here's James Franco as legendary filmmaker Tommy Wiseau in 'The Disaster Artist'

The Disaster Artist 🌟 The making of the legendary film by Tommy Weiseau, THE ROOM! Premiering at #sxsw !!!!

James Franco just posted this image on Instagram of his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in the upcoming film The Disaster Artist. If you're unfamiliar with Tommy Wiseau, he's the genius who wrote, directed, and starred in The Room. No, not the 2015 film that was nominated for a bunch of Academy Awards. I'm talking about the masterpiece released in 2003 that many consider to be the worst movie ever made.

The Disaster Artist, based on the book of the same name, is about the production of The Room. I always just assumed The Room manifested itself into reality because there's no way it was made by the hand of man. If you think I'm exaggerating, watch this clip from The Room and tell me this seems like something a human being would've made:

And here's the actual Tommy Wiseau for reference:


'Samurai Jack' season 5 trailer

February 7, 2017


The art. The music. The animation. This is exactly how you revitalize an old property. It's only a limited series and takes place 50 years after the last season, but if it can look even remotely as good as this trailer, then somebody somewhere did their job right.

'Avatar 2' to start filming now that 'Avatar 5' has been written

February 3, 2017


James Cameron has confirmed that he's going to begin filming Avatar 2 now that he's completed writing Avatar 5. That's not a typo. He's written Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5 and will be filming them all simultaneously. He told The Daily Beast:

"The thing is, my focus isn't on Avatar 2. My focus is on Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5 equally. That's exactly how I'm approaching it. They've all been developed equally. I've just finished the script to Avatar 5. I'm now starting the process of active prep. I'll be working with the actors in the capture volume in August, so I'm booked in production every day between now and then."

This is incredibly optimistic thinking on James Cameron's part. Avatar came out eight years ago so it's not exactly riding a wave of popularity. And to follow it up with not one, but four sequels right off the bat is basically insane. What do they do with the three extra sequels if Avatar 2 bombs? Just call it a billion dollar loss and move on with their lives? Does James Cameron go back to the Titanic wreckage and then just stay there permanently?

New 'Power Rangers' poster

They've given up on the movie and have gone straight to the merchandising because there's no way this isn't just the Power Rangers toys posed to look like a movie poster.

Legendary Pictures' 'Dune' reboot gets director Denis Villeneuve on board

February 1, 2017


Brian Herbert (son of Dune author Frank Herbert) has confirmed that Arrival director Denis Villeneuve has been signed to direct Legendary Pictures' upcoming Dune reboot.

Dune seems more suited for an HBO miniseries than a single film, but considering Denis Villeneuve's track record and the fact that he's stated Dune is his dream project, whatever approach they take will probably be amazing. Villeneuve is so good he could probably make it work as an animated stop-motion short if he wanted.
