Mulan

Disney adapting animated classics into live-action films has proven to be a very lucrative business model. With Cinderella grossing over $330 million worldwide in three weeks, and a live-action Beauty and The Beast, starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and Luke Evans, in the works, the studio has just announced that an adaptation of the 1998 animated film Mulan is currently under development.

THR reports that Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek have penned the script, and that the film will be produced by Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (We’re the Millers).

Netflix Streaming Review: Absentia
Dr. Zaius   |  

Absentia Horror DVD Blu-ray

Absentia
Netflix Streaming | Amazon Instant Video | DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Mike Flanagan
Written by Mike Flanagan
Starring Katie Parker, Courtney Bell, Dave Levine, Justin Gordon, Morgan Peter Brown
Fallback Plan Productions
Run time: 87 minutes
Originally Released: March 3, 2011

A good buddy of mine made a passionate plea on Facebook for someone to watch a particular horror movie currently on Netflix Instant. His plea intrigued me not because of a plot description, nor because of an actor we like; but rather his comment that this horror film was completely cliche-free. In a world where even the biggest grossing horror films are filled to the brims with jump scares, musical cues, and special effects, I am fortunate to find and recommend Mike Flanagan‘s 2011 film, Absentia; or as I am now calling it, the “cure for the modern horror film.”

Steven Spielberg’s ‘The BFG’ Casts Bill Hader
Dr. Zaius   |  

Bill Hader

Steven Spielberg and Roald Dahl. Combined these men have created some of the greatest children’s stories ever. From E.T. and Indiana Jones to Matilda and Willy Wonka, these men of film and literature have changed lives for generations of kids. So imagine how mind blowing it was when it was announced that Spielberg was helming one of Dahl’s classics, 1982′s The BFG. Melissa Mathison is penning the screenplay. For those uninformed, BFG stands for “Big Friendly Giant.”

Along with Tony award-winner Mark Rylance (playing the BFG) and newcomer Ruby Barnhill (playing little English girl Sophie) is SNL veteran Bill Hader.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Disney has Marvel and Star Wars, Warner Bros has DC and LEGO, and Sony has Ghostbusters and possibly Spider-Man.

‘Spectre’ Teaser Trailer: James Bond 007 Returns, and This Time He Has Secrets
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Spectre

The first trailer for the latest James Bond adventure, Spectre, has premiered this evening. You can watch it here below.

After doing a bang-up job directing Skyfall, Oscar-winner Sam Mendes is back behind the camera for Daniel Craig‘s fourth go-around as Ian Fleming‘s iconic, globe-trotting British superspy. Spectre‘s inaugural teaser is light on action and heavy on mood and mystery, literally keeping Christoph Waltz‘s secret villain in the shadows. We get some hints at Bond’s past, including a callback to the final battle in Skyfall, and the surprise appearance of Jesper Christensen as Mr. White, the enigmatic puppet master who appeared briefly in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, indicates that we might see some loose ends from those earlier films finally get tied up.
