Arnold Schwarzenegger appearing in a new action film isn’t exactly surprising news, but it’s always exciting. But his latest project should make plenty of you (including ScreenCrush’s resident expert / #1 Arnold fan Matt Singer) quite happy, as the actor and former Governator has signed on to star in an action comedy that also happens to mark the directorial debut of SNL’s Taran Killam.
The latest chapter of the current Star Trek saga doesn’t hit theaters until this summer, but it looks like Paramount is hedging their bets as the studio is already (reportedly) plotting the next installment in the franchise. Although fans don’t seem to be totally wowed by the trailers for Star Trek Beyond, it would appear that the studio is quite pleased with Justin Lin’s direction for the upcoming sequel — but with Lin attached to helm that new Space Jam movie (ugh, why), Paramount may need another director to take on Trek.
It’s not uncommon for trailers to feature scenes that never make it to theaters, or for specific scenes to look slightly different than they did in early teasers, owing to changes in visual FX during production. Such is the case with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while some of the scenes featured in the trailers weren’t included in the theatrical version, those deleted scenes are included on the new Blu-ray release. But there was one thing from the initial trailers that wasn’t restored: a reference to George Lucas’ prequels.
For the last couple of years, Robert Downey Jr. has said that there are no plans for a fourth Iron Man movie — and he hasn’t appeared to be interested in making another one, to be honest. And that fact is seemingly supported by his Marvel contract, which does not include another solo outing beyond Iron Man 3. When (and if) Marvel re-ups the actor’s contract, that could very well be subject to change, when (and if) Downey Jr. is open to it. That time appears to be now.
The Happytime Murders has been in the works since 2008, with STX Entertainment stepping in last summer to put Brian Henson’s R-rated puppet crime movie back in development. It’s been several months since the last update on the long-gestating project, but it looks as though things are finally picking up, as Jamie Foxx is in talks to star in the film — but is he a man, or is he a puppet?
Before Chad Stahelski and David Leitch made their directorial debut, the guys behind John Wick worked as stunt coordinators and second unit directors on films like The Matrix, The Hunger Games and The Wolverine — to name just a fraction of their credits. And while most fans are aware of their movie history, you might not know that the duo also helped Joe and Anthony Russo on Captain America: Civil War, giving them a little assistance with some of their action sequences, of course.
Last week, Robert Downey Jr. revealed that Sherlock Holmes 3 will begin filming this year, with Guy Ritchie returning to direct the long-developing sequel. Lo and behold today’s update that a new screenwriter has been tapped to rewrite the script — because when Robert Downey Jr. says something is happening, he enters into a binding verbal contract with the universe and essentially wills his thoughts into existence.
It’s been a little quiet on the Ghostbusters front in the last few weeks, but Sony has unveiled some colorful new banners featuring three of the characters from Paul Feig’s upcoming film. Melissa McCarthy is strangely absent, but Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig each get their very own promo image, blasting away with their cool new proton packs.
Warner Bros. has taken a pretty clever approach to marketing The Nice Guys, Shane Black's new dark comedy noir starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as a mismatched pair of investigators. In keeping with that idea, these new video shorts feature Gosling and Crowe playing fictional versions of themselves, forced to attend couples therapy to work out their issues so they can more amicably promote the film together.
With the endless stream of reboots and re-adaptations and remakes and reimaginings and re-whatever-other-word-we’re-using-now (revivals!), news like this becomes inevitable. Chances are, if you even vaguely recall a classic television show, it’s going to come back, and the best you can hope for is something like 21 Jump Street. At worst? It will cinematically haunt your soul, revealing the true insidious nature of your nostalgia like no horror you have ever known before. And with that Herzog-ian thought, we move onto today’s news: New Line is developing a movie based on Three’s Company.
By now you have the release date for Captain America: Civil War tattooed on your brain, but — shocker! — there are other movies hitting theaters next month, believe it or not. In addition to Marvel's latest, we also have a new film from Shane Black, the sequel to Neighbors and, lest you forget, X-Men: Apocalypse. There's plenty more in our guide to May's new movie releases.
The ability to see a highly-anticipated blockbuster on a giant IMAX screen seems like enough of a draw on its own, but just in case you wanted to make those few extra bucks really feel worth it, Marvel has unveiled some new posters for Captain America: Civil War — which will only be available to those who purchase a ticket to see the film in IMAX, of course.
