Chloe Moretz is cast as the lead in Universal's live action adaptation of The Little Mermaid.

Image
It was just announced that actress Chloe Moretz has just been cast as the little mermaid in Working Title and Universal's upcoming live action adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid.

Originally, Sofia Coppola (Lost In Translation) was attached to this project to direct but she has since left due to creative differences. Some say that Coppola did not want to cast Moretz which was a frontrunner for the lead even when Coppola was with the film.

At the moment there is no director tied to the project and no set release date.

Enemies unite in the first Warcraft trailer.

Image
Legendary Pictures finally released the first full length trailer for  Duncan Jones' Warcraft at BlizzCon 2015 today.

The trailer is a lot of fun but the test is going to be how non-gamers take to it. Some of the visuals shown are gorgeous but you can see that there is a very distant style to the orcs that is different than what people have come to expect thanks to films like The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Though this trailer hasn't completely sold me on the film just yet it has done enough to definitely keep me interested. I look forward to seeing more!



Warcraft will be in theaters on June 10, 2016.

Also, there is a shot of TIE Fighters flying through a sunset/sunrise that is just stunning!

I didn't think I could get more excited for this film but this trailer has done it. The footage shown here has me asking new questions and wondering what will be happening in this new adventure. I cannot wait!!

Official synopsis revealed for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them!

Image
Entertainment Weekly released some amazing new photos from the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them yesterday and today they have given fans more to be excited about. The official synopsis for the film has been released and it does a great job at keeping things relatively spoiler free.

Official synopsis:
"Eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander (Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne) comes to New York (for a reason we won’t disclose) with his trusty weathered case. This case is one of those way-way-way-bigger-on-the-inside magical devices, and within are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt’s travels around globe. He discovers the American wizarding community is fearfully hiding from Muggles (who are called “No-Maj” in the States, more on that here) and the threat of public exposure is an even graver concern than in the UK (remember the Salem witch trials?). Fantastic Beasts is the story of what happens when this uniquely sk…

Samus Aran is called to action in the amazing fan film Metroid: The Sky Calls!

Image
Many times fan films can be a lot of fun to watch but rarely do they leave you asking for more. When they do, it's usually you asking for more on the internet. However, the folks over at Rainfall Films have created a short fan film for Nintendo's Metroid series that will have you wanting it on the big screen!

Titled "Metroid: The Sky Calls", this fan film will leave you in awe. Metroid: The Sky Calls follows the intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran, played brilliantly by Jessica Chobot, as she attempts to answer a distress beacon left by the Chozo. With a fantastic retro feel to it, this film short is everything that you would want it to be and I would love to see more of this sometime soon!
"The classic Nintendo franchise, Metroid, envisioned through the lens of 60s-70s science fiction cinema such as 2001, Alien, and Solaris: this was the concept for Rainfall’s most recent production. Instead of using a modern approach, a style was developed more in tune wit…

Let's head behind-the-scenes of the hit Disney show Star Wars Rebels and find out some great inside information concerning the season 2 episode "Always Two There Are".
"This week’s Rebels Recon kicks off at New York Comic Con, where Sarah Michelle Gellar talks about her role in Star Wars Rebels and the importance of female characters in the saga. Things end with a hug.  Back at Lucasfilm headquarters, Dave Filoni speaks to Andi Gutierrez about the hierarchy of Inquisitors and drops a bomb: the original Inquisitor was a character from The Clone Wars.   The Chopper cam features an exciting Halloween costume contest between Chopper and a svelte Jabba the Hutt. One of them scores a 10.   Pablo Hidalgo answers a fan’s question about TIE fighters. It turns out the cockpit is roomy enough for more than one passenger, both on the show and in the films.   In a preview of the upcoming episode "Brothers of the Broken Horn,” Ezra finds himself torn between combat training…

5 new character posters are released for Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

Image
Five new posters were released today for Disney and Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Force Awakens! I am assuming that this is just the first wave of posters in this style as there are some key characters missing. However, in this first wave of posters there are Rey (Daisy Ridley), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Finn (John Boyega), and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

These posters are not flashy but they are still pretty cool to see! Which one is your favorite?

"Fantastic Beasts is set in 1920s New York and tells the story of Magizoologist Newt Scamander, played by Oscar-winning British actor Eddie Redmayne ( The Theory of Everything).  Scamander is the writer behind the foremost textbook on the magical creatures of the wizarding world, (you’ve guessed it) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." The new logo looks absolutely amazing. It has the magical feel that you have come to expect from the Harry Potter films while still having a feel of its own.


While speaking to Pottermore, the creative team behind the logo spoke about how the logo was conceived.
‘If you think of Harry Potter, that logo instantly comes into your mind: the lightning bolt ‘P’ and the shape of the words. So we wanted this one to feel like it was born of that same world. We were trying to come up with someth…

"Battle for Christmas Morning shows what’s possible when two young Jedi power up their lightsabers with Duracell and enter the Star Wars world of imaginative play to take on Stormtroopers, Tie Fighters, and the rest of the Dark Side." I absolutely love this commercial! Enjoy!

Ghostbusters gets its own funny sitcom style television intro.

Image
Just in case you've ever wondered what Ghostbusters would be like if it were a television sitcom IFC has created a funny show intro to show you exactly what it would look like. It's funny and they use the perfect film clips but I'm glad this was never made into a real thing.

Ryan Reynolds poses in his Deadpool suit with X-Men trick or treaters on Halloween.

Image
In a past interview we heard Ryan Reynolds admit that since he waited 10 years for the Deadpool film to be made he thought he deserved to keep the suit and he took it. Now we have our first glimpse of the good use that he is putting it to!

Reynolds wore his Deadpool suit for Halloween and posted a photo on Twitter with some children dressed as X-Men with the following caption,
"“Dear Fox, stop changing the timelines. It's confusing the audience. #xmenassemble #happyhalloween”"  This is absolutely amazing. Ryan Reynolds, you are awesome.

New Star Trek show will come to CBS in 2017.

Image
This is it, sci-fi fans! Star Trek is back! CBS has just picked up an all new Star Trek show that will air in 2017.
"The new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966." The last Star Trek series that fans had to watch was Star Trek: Enterprise which ended in 2005. That series had the fan community split in terms of whether it was good or not but it kept the show alive at least. Since then fans have had to wait for J.J. Abrams films to hit theaters. There does seem to be one catch though with this new series.
""This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run Star Trek series has gone before — directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access,” said Marc DeBevoise, executive vp and GM at CBS Digital Media. “We’ve experienced terrific growth for …

See the world premiere trailer for AMC's Preacher.

Image
The first full length trailer debuted last night for AMC's adaptation of the 1990 comic Preacher.
"Preacher is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper, Agent Carter), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse, his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun, This Is England) embark on a journey to, literally, find God."
Though controversial, the comic has a big following and there are a lot of people out there who are really excited to see this show.The first trailer gives us our first good look at these characters and what we can expect from the series.



I have to say that I really enjoyed the comic when I read it and it is clear that the show will deviate from it but watching this trailer I felt underwhelmed. I don't know what it was exactly but I just feel this trailer didn't succeed in exc…

10 fantastic Star Wars movie mistakes that you may have missed.

Image
Super fans love to spot mistakes in films, and then argue over them, and this video from Screen Rant has found a bunch for the original Star Wars trilogy. Screen Rant did a great job with this video. They don't point out all the things that fans already know. They dug deep and found some great, hidden mistakes in the films. For example, before Obi-Wan Kenobi fights Darth Vader on the Death Star, you can see a wire going from his lightsaber to his sleeve which was apparently a power cord plugged into the saber. I have never noticed that before. See how many of these mistakes you noticed during your viewings of the films.
