Sequel To Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth’ To Be Directed By ‘Don’t Breathe,’ ‘Evil Dead’s Fede Alvarez
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Labyrinth Movie Image

Back in 2014 came surprising word of a sequel to Jim Henson‘s 1986 feature Labyrinth. The sequel was quickly denied by sources, but no one ever knows if denials like that are because something is actually not happening or if word of it got out to the public before they were ready. A little over a year later the project surfaced again, this time with Guardians of the Galaxy writer Nicole Perlman, though she later said it was clickbait.

Now comes word of a new attempt. It’s being reported that the director behind 2013’s Evil Dead and last year’s Don’t Breathe, Fede Alvarez, has come on board to write and direct the Labyrinth sequel.

Transformers: Age of Extinction poster crop

According to longtime Transformers director Michael Bay, there’s 14 more movies in the franchise on the way including the spinoffs, and he’s interested in making one of those spinoffs. Now, before we shake our heads in (not so surprised) disbelief, let’s just get one thing out of the way first. Transformers: The Last Knight is supposed to be Bay’s last film in the franchise. At least that’s what he’s said. Remember, he previously told the press that for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. So it doesn’t come as a shock when he also says he’d like to do one of the spinoffs.

Secondly, 14 more Transformers films was not unexpected. At least not when Bay, Akvia Goldsman, and Steven Spielberg gathered a group of writers to pitch ideas to expand the franchise into a shared universe. More on the story below.

Venom

Spider-Man continues to be Sony’s flagship superhero. But now that studios are in the business of shared universes, Sony wants to cash in on the same success they are having. However, their first attempt was less than successful thanks in no small part to The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s underperforming box office numbers. But now that they are sharing the Webslinger with Marvel Studios, they are going to take another stab at it starting with Venom.

More on the story below.

‘Kong Skull Island’ Trailer: There’s A Reason Why Kong Is King On This Island

Kong: Skull Island Header

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the upcoming Kong: Skull Island is that the film is a period piece, that takes place almost entirely on the titular island. Set in the 1970s, an expedition team sets out to chart the recently discovered island only to find out that there are dark secrets and scary beasts that roam the land.

Previous trailers pretty much set the narrative and loose connections to the King of Monsters universe, that Warner Bros and Legendary are creating, but now this new trailer is all about the action between the humans killing the oversized monsters and Kong, who is king of the island.

Check out the newest trailer below.

Nightwing DCEU

The DCEU universe is full of nods and Easter eggs that give us an idea of just how expansive the shared universe is. We saw Jason Todd’s Robin Suit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which leads us to believe that Batman has been around long enough to have at least two heroes fight by his side.

Before Todd, there was Dick Grayson, who was the first Robin. While his character has not been acknowledge as of yet, it looks like there will be a movie about this character, and The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay could be who makes it. More on the story below.
