By: Sean O’Connell Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but Hollywood appears ready to move forward with an adaptation of the third-person shooter game Gears of War, with Scott Stuber on board to produce and guide the film through production.

Taylor Kitsch Targets A Killer In Horror Thriller Exit 147

By:  Sean O’Connell Because of movies like Battleship, John Carter and The Savages, I will shudder at the sight of Taylor Kitsch’s name for at least the next five years. Granted, I didn’t watch Friday Night Lights, so I’ve never experienced the power of the Kitsch bandwagon. All I’ve seen are his feature-length films, and they’ve been abysmal, so I’m cautious about Exit 147 right off the bat. The horror site Bloody Disgusting reports that … Continue reading Taylor Kitsch Targets A Killer In Horror Thriller Exit 147

Ben Affleck Was Asked To Play Batman In The Justice League Movie?

By:  Sean O’Connell The Justice League movie might never graduate beyond the rumor stage. The last bit of news we reported about the potential JLA movie was pretty bad (more on that in a second). But when the rumors are as tantalizing as the one that recently dropped, you understand why this project potentially works better as fanboy wishes and dreams than as an actual movie that probably won’t live … Continue reading Ben Affleck Was Asked To Play Batman In The Justice League Movie?

Robotech Anime Adaptation Hires Nic Mathieu To Direct

By: Sean O’Connell Just in case audiences responded favorably to Guillermo Del Toro’s robots-versus-monsters blockbuster Pacific Rim (which is expected), Hollywood wants to make sure it has rival sci-fi/tech/robot/battle projects in the pipeline. As a result, Rim studio Warner Bros. has decided to move ahead with a big-budget adaptation of the anime series Robotech, officially tapping a director for the gig.

Benedict Cumberbatch Admits He’s Irritated By Star Trek Villain Mystery

By: Sean O’Connell OK, J.J. Abrams. We’re giving you the polite “golf clap” at being able to maintain the mystery surrounding Benedict Cumberbatch’s identity in Star Trek Into Darkness. You’ve teased Trekkies with compelling trailers that skillfully hinted at Khan, but feel like calculated misdirections to cynical film journalists (like myself). But even Cumberbatch is starting to crack, revealing his mild frustration at not being able to … Continue reading Benedict Cumberbatch Admits He’s Irritated By Star Trek Villain Mystery
