Universal’s ‘Bride Of Frankenstein’ No Longer Alive, For Now At Least

Dark Universe group shot Bride Of Frankenstein

This Summer, Universal released The Mummy, the first film in their new Dark Universe. Similar to that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe, the Dark Universe would have re-envisioned Universal’s famous classic movie monsters with a modern day twist. The idea sounded promising, especially when it touted a stellar cast like Tom Cruise and Javier Bardem, and it seemed like it had all the makings of a success.

But The Mummy was panned by critics and was a box office bomb, leaving many to question if there was any need to explore a Dark Universe or kick it off with a reboot of a film so soon. So, at least for now, Universal and director Bill Condon have decided to hit the pause button on what was to be the next installment, Bride Of Frankenstein. More on the story below.

Judy Greer

Reboots are just a thing we are accustomed to seeing in headlines nowadays. But some reboots catch our interest, especially when it falls into the right hands. Such as Blumhouse’s new take on Halloween.

The film will bring back Jamie Lee Curtis who made a name for herself as the ultimate scream queen in John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic slasher film. When announcing her return, Curtis said “Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween.” So while it is something of a reboot of the franchise, the movie is also a sequel and canon. And to make sure it is canon, the film will be adding one interesting connection.

New reports confirm that Judy Greer will be joining the cast as Karen Strode, Laurie Strode’s daughter. More on the story below.

‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle’ Trailer: The Rock Literally Carries The Reboot and Kevin Hart

Jumanji Starring The Rock, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Jack Black

It’s hard to say how fans will truly react to Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle. I had mixed feelings about the first trailer, and this new trailer doesn’t sway it in any direction. But in a day and age of reboots, a new take on Jumanji wasn’t a complete surprise.

In the new trailer, we get to see the traditional new footage and some more details on the evolution of the game, which in turn explains its world building. Now, four troublemaking high school students have become trapped in a video game of the same name, where they have become their chosen avatars. If you haven’t seen the first trailer, you get a sense of how these students chose characters that are not like themselves. So there’s that. Oh, and I guess Nick Jonas plays an ace pilot. Check out the full trailer here below.

Hellboy

As much as we would like to see the Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy franchise to continue on with Ron Perlman, Lionsgate’s reboot is steering it in a new direction. And with every reboot must come a new cast. Stranger Things star David Harbour will play the title character, with director Neil Marshall (The Descent) taking the new iteration towards a hard-R. This follows a recent string of hit comic book adaptation that have been geared towards a more mature audience. But we didn’t know what Big Red would look like or at least how he would distinguish himself from the first take.

Now that has changed, with the film posting the first look at Harbour as Hellboy on social media. And not a teaser, either. A full body look at the character, one gigantic arm, shaved off horns, gun, and all. Check it out below.

Ed Skrein Walking Away From ‘Hellboy’ Reboot Is The Definition Of A Win For Representation

Ed Skrein leaves Hellboy

Actor Ed Skrein is taking himself out of the Hellboy reboot, citing the outcry of whitewashing when he was initially cast as a non-white role from the comic book. That role is Major Ben Daimio, a character who happens to be Japanese. His move is practically unheard of, especially since we’ve been seeing a huge increase in whitewashing in films like Ghost In The Shell, Doctor Strange, Death Note, and much more. When the casting was initially announced, the backlash was swift with many decrying it.

But the Deadpool and Game of Thrones actor believed that “representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voice in the Arts.” More on what he had to say and the importance of representation here below.

Terminator: Genisys

Though James Cameron has his hands full working on those Avatar sequels, he still finds the time to work on other projects. Even if some of those other projects like Battle Angel had to be handed off to a new filmmaker. Well, now you can add a Terminator trilogy to the “will he, won’t he?” list. That’s right, Cameron wants to see a new Terminator trilogy. More on the story below.
