‘MacGruber 2’ Is Finally On Its Way With Director Jorma Taccone
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

MacGruber

Though a critical flop, the interest in seeing MacGruber 2 has never died. It’s been nearly 6 years since the original film based on the Saturday Night Live skit was released, and any hopes of seeing a follow-up have been kept alive thanks to its cult following. In fact, the last substantial thing we’ve heard about a MacGruber 2 was way back in 2013, when the thought of producing a sequel using crowdfunding was being explored. While plans for that fell through, it seems as though MacGruber director Jorma Taccone will be giving us that sequel we’ve all be waiting for. Check out the full story below.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange Recruited For ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Doctor Strange

It is going to be hard to believe that any hero that has appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would not have a role in Avengers: Infinity War. Though the team is currently fractured, they would most likely have to put their differences aside to fight Thanos. As far as we know, the founding members, maybe the Guardians of the Galaxy, members of Team Iron Man and Team Captain America, Spider-Man, and Black Panther will all participate in the fight to defend Earth. Now it looks like they won’t be alone as Benedict Cumberbatch says Doctor Strange will be joining the fray.

James Corden and Daisy Ridley Join ‘Peter Rabbit’

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit is easily one of the most memorable pieces of children literature to ever be released. Since its publication back in 1902, five subsequent books were then released between 1904 and 1912. The rest is, as they say, history. Merchandise and adaptations would soon follow, thus continuing the success of the franchise. Now, the title character is about to get the big-screen treatment from Sony Animation Pictures. A new report says The Late Late Show host James Corden, Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 star Elizabeth Debecki will star in the live-action animation hybrid of Peter Rabbit. Rose Bryne will also have a role in the film. More on the story below.

While trapped inside the dark school, the boy sees something inexplicable: the ghost of a young girl murdered years earlier. The red-headed girl was the first victim of a serial child murderer that has eluded the police of Willowpoint Falls for nearly a decade. Now, the killer is after Frankie. After an unseen assailant attacks the boys and leaves him for dead, the police arrest Harold “Willy” Williams (Henry Harris), the school’s African-American janitor.

Cast: Rick Burks, Carl Crew, Roger Dauer, LaNette LaFrance, Lisa Guggenheim, Tanya Papanicolas, Drew Godderis
Distributor: Lionsgate
Unrated | 88 Minutes

“Warning! The truly unusual motion picture you are about to see contains many scenes of graphic violence. It is not intended for the faint of heart nor the young and impressionable. While it is a sad fact that mass homicide and practitioners of blood cults infest our society, the producers of this film wish to express that they do not condone, nor do they want to inspire, any of the human butchery or violence portrayed in this film. If you feel you will be offended by such material, please leave the theater at once. Note: All of the mutilations, bodily dismemberments, and cannibal rituals were performed by seasoned professionals. Please do not attempt any of these stunts at home. Thank you.”

Directed by female exploitation filmmaker Jackie Kong (Night Patrol) and written by Michael Sonye (Mengele from Troma’s Surf Nazis Must Die), Blood Diner is one of the craziest damn movies you’ll ever see – and now it’s available on Blu-ray, transferred from the original film elements, thanks to Lionsgate’s Vestron Video Collector’s Series.

Bill Hader Will Voice Alpha 5 In ‘Power Rangers’

Bill Hader to Voice Alpha-5 in Power Rangers

The heroes for the new incarnation of Power Rangers are relative unknowns, while the villains and supporting roles have gone to more recognizable names like Elizabeth Banks and Bryan Cranston. This was the plan going into the movie from the very beginning, and it looks like they are following through as the latest casting gets yet another famous comedian to join the ranks of the Rangers. Bill Hader will now be the voice of Alpha 5, the bumbling robot with a heart of gold who often assists Zordon, who is otherwise trapped in a time wrap, by giving the Power Rangers the tools they need to save the day.

The Red Turtle header image

A film that has been literally making waves in its film festival run is Studio Ghibli’s The Red Turtle. It won the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and won over audiences at TIFF, and soon will be making its way to the states where it will be shown at Fantastic Fest, where I’m sure it will be just as well-received.

But for a film that lacks dialogue makes up in everything else. That’s because British animator Michaël Dudok de Wit‘s film doesn’t have any dialogue, and explores the circle of life through the beauty of simplicity and animation. Check out the full trailer below.

Mute Concept Art

Long before Duncan Jones got the gig to direct the blockbuster adaptation of Warcraft, he was a small indie director with only a few features under his belt. In fact, Moon wasn’t even supposed to mark his debut as a director, that moment was reserved for his passion project, Mute.

Now that his obligations to Warcraft are behind him, the filmmaker can start focusing once again on bringing Mute to the big screen, and has announced that production on the film will commence next week. More on the story below.

‘Pacific Rim 2’ Starts Filming This November; Jing Tian Joins The Cast
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Pacific Rim

Though Pacific Rim was a bit underwhelming in the U.S, where it grossed $101 million, but found huge overseas numbers, particularly in China, where it grossed $111 million. Those numbers were just enough to garner a sequel, Pacific Rim 2, that will be directed by Steven DeKnight. Currently, the film stars John Boyega and Scott Eastwood, and it’s still not clear if anyone from the first film will be returning. While Charlie Hunnam has said he will not be reprising his role in the sequel, Guillermo del Toro that most of the original cast would return.

With most the major pieces already in place, it was only a matter of time before Legendary would be announcing a start date for the production. Now the production company can say that Pacific Rim 2 will begin lensing this November, and Chinese actress Jing Tian will be joining the cast. More on the story below.
