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.
Disney is really doubling down on its growing live-action reboot / remake empire, claiming five more release dates for its upcoming projects and officially confirming several previously reported films, including The Jungle Book 2, Maleficent 2, Tim Burton’s Dumbo and more. The studio now has a total of seven release dates set for various live-action projects, and though they have yet to formally attach specific titles to these dates, reports suggest that at least one of the new dates belongs to The Jungle Book sequel.
Sure, you have plenty of movie options in theaters next month, with Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse and everything in between (High-Rise. Go see High-Rise), but if you're looking to stay home there's lots of new stuff for you to check out. Whether you're looking to rent or add to your collection, read on for our guide to the new DVD and Blu-ray releases arriving in May.
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.
We are just a few weeks away from the beginning of Marvel’s Phase 3, which kicks off with Captain America: Civil War and runs through 2019 with Avengers: Infinity War Part II (and possibly Inhumans). Although we are still a few years out from Phase 4, studio head Kevin Feige recently revealed at least one title we can expect in the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which — as he explains in a new interview — will be “distinctively different.”
By now you're well-aware that Captain America: Civil War is arriving in just a few weeks, and though we've seen a good amount of footage via trailers, TV spots and photos, there's still one character we've yet to meet: the villainous Baron Zemo, played by Daniel Bruhl. Marvel has finally provided a look at Civil War's big bad (who doesn't look so big or bad), along with a few new images and four (yes, four) magazine covers.
After months of uncertainty and an awkward public back-and-forth between Melissa McCarthy and Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, it’s finally, officially, 100 percent all happening. Yes, McCarthy is returning to reprise her role as Sookie St. James, the greatest (and clumsiest) chef in Stars Hollow, and the most reliable pal a cool single mom like Lorelai Gilmore could hope for.
Since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hit theaters (and even prior to that), there’s been nothing but talk of the Justice League movies, a new Batman solo film starring and possibly (probably) directed by Ben Affleck, and various other DC superhero movies. But there’s one potential project that hasn’t been discussed: another Superman solo film. Warner Bros.’ DC movie schedule doesn’t include a sequel to Man of Steel, but that doesn’t mean that Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill aren’t thinking about it.
While William Shatner has shot down the possibility of making a cameo in Star Trek Beyond, you better believe Justin Lin still has some fun surprises in store for fans of the franchise. One of those surprises (or two, rather) is the focus of a new contest the director is holding, and if you can correctly guess which actors are making a cameo in the film based on this set photo, you’ll win some neat prizes.
Denis Villeneuve is set to begin filming Blade Runner 2 this summer, and as pre-production picks up steam, so do the casting announcements for the highly-anticipated project— which means this thing is absolutely happening. Robin Wright has joined Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford in the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic (and arguable masterpiece, depending on which version you’re watching), snatching up one of three major female roles in the film.
James Gunn has made it clear that he’s no longer responding to rumors regarding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so don’t expect the director to confirm or deny the latest report, which may reveal the names of three new characters. Take it with the usual grain of salt, but given how wild and weird the Guardians corner of the Marvel universe is, these names all sound fairly plausible.
Alice Through the Looking Glass is one of the more curious sequel developments in recent years. Tim Burton’s CGI / live-action Wonderland hybrid (okay, the scales were definitely tipped in CGI’s favor) did fairly well at the box office, but we can thank international audiences for its real success…and for this sequel, which has a brand new trailer filled with wacky characters and lots of cute wordplay involving “time.”
