When New Line tried to bring 'Dungeons and Dragons' to the big screen in 2000, it was coming a year after 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace' and a year before 'The Lord of the Rings,' and was done on a budget. Basically, it came at the right time and place to be totally forgotten and dismissed. But now, according to Warner Brothers, the time couldn't be more right for a reboot.
Though Tom Cruise may have gone through a rough patch in his career, that's now completely over as he's being brought back to star in 'Mission: Impossible 5' for Paramount. This has been rumored for a while, but it was confirmed today.
Before they decided to get in the film business for themselves, Marvel used to license out their characters to different studios. And those studios can continue making movies about those characters as long as they have a film (or sequel or reboot) in production in the allotted amount of time. If they don't, the rights revert back to Marvel. With no sequels or reboots in active development, the rights to Blade and Ghost Rider have reverted back to Marvel.
It was well known that -- partly to appeal to an ever-growing global audience -- Marvel thought ahead and included Chinese actors for an extended cut of 'Iron Man 3' that was made specifically for the Chinese market. Now that the film has been released in China, the content of those additional scenes have been revealed, and it turns out that the rest of the world isn't missing much.
'Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story' was a pretty funny movie that was a surprise hit in 2004. It pitted Vince Vaughn and his gang of outsiders against Ben Stiller and his corporate stooges in a winner-takes-all game of dodgeball. When a film does as well as 'Dodgeball' did (it made over $100 million at the box office), a sequel is practically guaranteed, and though it took a decade, it looks like they're finally getting around to it.
It's been almost a decade since Keanu Reeves wrapped up 'The Matrix' trilogy, and over five years since his 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' remake, and in the interim Reeves has kept quiet. Sure, he's done some indie films, and produced a documentary, but he's been off the big screen for a while. But now he's signed on to star in 'Passengers,' which will return him to science fiction.
Though this was rumored last year, it looks like a sequel to 2012's '21 Jump Street' is moving forward. Sony has confirmed that they're going to make the film and that it will have a release sometime in 2014.
Long in development, Jason Segel and director Jake Kasdan have been trying to get the film 'Sex Tape' going for over a year. When we last reported the duo were looking to reunite with their 'Bad Teacher' star Cameron Diaz, and now -- a year later -- it looks like that's finally going to happen.
You might think Zack Snyder is keeping busy, what with post-production on 'Man of Steel' and the latest trailer hitting today, but he broke a near six-month Twitter silence to tweet the debut of the first poster for '300: Rise of an Empire.' And the image definitely makes it look like the last movie, and that it is proud of its producer.
