Ready Player One

You can always expect a grand introduction when it comes to the WB panel at SDCC, and this year was no different as the curtains pulled back around the massive stage to reveal the latest films that the studio is currently working on. The studio proudly displayed a sizzle reel of all their films ranging from Lord of the Rings to Gravity to the DCEU.

With the crowd already amped up after waiting 20 plus hours to get in, WB’s panel started off with Steven Spielberg‘s new movie Ready Player One, a film we haven’t seen much of. That changed today with the release of a new trailer. Check it out below.

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.

The Movie God   |  

Gremlins

Amidst all of these reboots and remakes and sequels, it is pretty surprising that we’ve not yet seen Gremlins 3 find life. We’ve heard about a new movie in the franchise in the past—sometimes as a remake, sometimes as a sequel—but nothing has ever come of it.

Thankfully Zach Galligan, who starred in the first two Gremlins movies, is keeping us updated on where things stand. Continue below to read what he had to say.

Disney The BFG Blu-ray Banner

The BFG
Blu-ray Combo Pack | DVD | Digital HD
Director: Steven Spielberg
Screenplay By Melissa Mathison, Based On The Book By Roald Dahl
Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Rebecca Hall
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 118 Minutes
Release Date: November 29, 2016

Roald Dahl is one of the greatest children’s book authors of all time, and the films made of his stories are usually very good to all-time classics. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was written by Dahl himself back in 1971, and before the bizarre Tim Burton big screen adaptation starring Johnny Depp, there was the beloved Gene Wilder version, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Since then we’ve gotten excellent work in films like The Witches, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, and James and the Giant Peach. Take the finest child author and combine him with the greatest living director, Steven Spielberg, and you get a the potential for a classic in the making: Disney’s The BFG… Big Friendly Giant.

George Lucas Isn’t Involved With ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Script, Per Screenwriter
eelyajekiM   |  

Indiana Jones

Earlier this year, Disney confirmed they would be releasing Indiana Jones 5 in 2019. The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg, with Harrison Ford reprising the title role he’s been playing since 1981. Given how well the actor’s return to playing Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was received, it only made sense that we get to see Ford play Dr. Jones once more.

But like the Star Wars films, some are worried that George Lucas will have some influence on the creative direction of the franchise. However, we might not have to worry about that any longer. According to David Koepp, Lucas might not be as involved as we originally thought. Check out what screenwriter Koepp had to say here below.
