And in other World War II-related movie news, here’s the first trailer for Denial, another new drama based on true events, this time a bit more recent. Rachel Weisz stars as Deborah E. Lipstadt, an author who becomes the subject of a lawsuit when she publicly slams a Holocaust denier. In an absurd and sadly familiar turn of events, Lipstadt is forced to prove the existence of the Holocaust in a court of law. If nothing else, Weisz looks to be giving one hell of a performance.
A couple of weeks back, directors James Gunn and Scott Derrickson hinted that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Doctor Strange will be making an appearance during Marvel’s panel at Comic-Con next month. In a new video from the set of the former, Gunn confirms those plans while officially wrapping production with Chris Pratt on the sequel.
If the time it’s taken for Universal to get their film adaptation of Wicked off the ground is any indication, then we could be waiting a very, very long time for a movie version of Hamilton (musical nerds, take heart: Lin-Manuel Miranda is filming his final performance). Today brings some long-awaited good news for fans of Wicked, however, as Universal has officially set a 2019 release date for the project. Grab your broomsticks, or whatever you need to rejoice properly.
Suicide Squad is one of our most anticipated films of the summer — mostly because after a few months of watching heroes save the world in big blockbusters, it’ll be fun to see a team of villains swoop in to shake things up. If Amanda Waller is to be believed in these new TV spots, these guys (and a couple of ladies) are the worst of the worst, but maybe that’s what we need right now.
By now, Jason Voorhees’ origin story has become as redundant and exhausting as the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. He was a kid with a physical abnormality who drowned because some careless teenage camp counselors were too busy gettin’ busy and smoking pot. We get it. But apparently we don’t get it enough because that long-developing Friday the 13th reboot is going to rehash Jason’s origins yet again — this time revealing even more needless information about the slasher boogeyman’s family history.
Dwayne Johnson continues to be the hardest working actor in Hollywood, seemingly immune to the flaws that plague mere mortals — like getting tired and needing a good nap. The actor has added yet another project to his ambitious pile, which already includes Fast 8, Jumanji, that recently announced Robert Ludlum cinematic universe, and (probably) Doc Savage. Basically, Dwayne Johnson is making you look lazy right now.
Disney’s live-action remakes have become just as inevitable as death and taxes — not that it’s necessarily a bad thing, considering how well The Jungle Book turned out (on the other hand, there’s that whole Alice in Wonderland thing…). And like that project, the studio may once again be setting up a competing live-action remake, this time turning their sights to The Little Mermaid.
Back before he made Cop Car and landed the highly-coveted Spider-Man: Homecoming directing gig, Jon Watts made a little horror film called Clown. The twisted result of a collaboration between Watts and Christopher D. Ford, Clown tells the story of a man whose life is torturously taken over by a seemingly innocuous clown suit that turns out to be far more than a mere costume.
To honor the 15th anniversary of the movie that started it all, Universal is re-releasing The Fast and the Furious in theaters nationwide. Revisiting your introduction to Dom, Letty, Brian and the magical world of NOS should help make the wait for Fast 8 a little easier, but you’ll only have a limited time to see the original film on the big screen.
Another week, another exciting Instagram update from our crazy-busy, impossibly charming and totally ripped pal Dwayne Johnson. Despite his increasingly crowded schedule, it looks like Johnson may have finally found some time to devote to Shane Black’s long-developing Doc Savage movie — thus confirming our suspicions that The Rock may actually be an advanced A.I. that requires no sleep.
Just take a moment to really soak in that headline. CBS, a major network in the United States, reportedly passed on a new Nancy Drew series because it was “too female.” Wow. In a country where women make up 51 percent of the population, it would just be totally crazy to green light a show about us. Thankfully, the contemporary update on the classic detective character is being shopped elsewhere, so hopefully they’ll find another network that doesn’t cringe at the thought of all this lady stuff.
As far as source material goes, classic Atari games would be categorized under “things least likely to inspire a movie,” along with objects like vacuum cleaners and steel beams. But the power of nostalgia is strong, and Hollywood is quite fond of taking unlikely properties from your childhood and turning them into movies — like Battleship and Trolls. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Atari’s Missile Command and Centipede games are heading to the big screen.
