Back in November last year, we heard that Creed 2 might be looking for someone to play the son of Ivan Drago, the legendary boxer responsible for killing Apollo Creed in the ring at the beginning of Rocky IV in 1985. At the time, an MMA fighter named Sage Northcutt said that he sent in […]

During /Film’s interview with screenwriter Justin Marks, creator of Starz’s new series Counterpart, we asked about his screenplay for the developing live-action Jungle Book sequel. The Jungle Book 2 was announced back in April of 2016, but we haven’t heard much on development since then. Jon Favreau is busy directing a new version of The […]

Sylvester Stallone is stepping out of the director’s ring.
Call me shallow. Call me politically incorrect. But as far as I’m concerned, “Daddy’s Home 2” is an instant holiday classic — right up there with “Home Alone,” “Elf” and “Christmas With the Kranks.” The film, which stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg and focuses on a blended, dysfunctional family spending the holiday season together,…
Trollhunters, the Netflix animated series from Guillermo del Toro, is gearing up for a second season, and now there’s a trailer to get fans excited. The series is a tale of two worlds colliding – the normal world as we know it, and a secret underground world of trolls. And we’re talking the mythical monstrous […]
The sounds of Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein have grown scarier as the show that they score has grown stranger. Since composing the score for the first season of “Stranger Things,” Dixon and Stein have toured with their synth band Survive (which includes two additional members) across the U.S. and Europe, including stops at festivals […]

They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

Anyone who read Stephen King’s It probably noticed a couple of small references to a turtle in director Andy Muschietti‘s record-breaking movie adaptation, but the nods were so small that they almost certainly went over the heads of anyone coming into the story fresh. But according to the filmmaker, he’s planning on incorporating the turtle (a major figure […]
The question is not “Are we getting an It sequel?” The question is “When will Warner Bros. and New Line get around to actually greenlighting the sequel now that the first movie made $123 million in its opening weekend, earned rave reviews, and and literally ends with the promise of a follow-up?” While we await official […]
Warner Bros. and New Line know they have a hit on their hands with It, Andy Muschietti‘s terrific adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel. Splitting the dense book into two films – one that follows “The Losers’ Club” protagonists as children, and one that catches up with them as adults nearly thirty years later – […]
Stuntwoman, Sequana Joi “SJ” Harris, who lost her life on the set of 'Deadpool 2' was a pro-safety advocate when it came to biking.
A preshow exchange echoes dynamics within the play by Lucas Hnath.
A Brooklyn stuntwoman was killed in a motorcycle accident Monday on the set of “Deadpool 2” in Vancouver, officials said. Professional motorcycle racer Joi “SJ” Harris was performing a stunt for actress Zazie Beetz, who plays the superhero Domino in the sequel to the 2016 Marvel flick. “Today we tragically lost a member of our…
A director has yet to be set.
Julian Dennison didn’t choose the superhero life, the superhero life chose him. Or rather, that’s how I like to think negotiations went down when the breakout star from Hunt for the Wilderpeople was announced to join the cast of Deadpool 2 — via a very fitting Instagram photo from Ryan Reynolds depicting the diminutive Dennison […]
Superhero movie fans are riding a Wonder Woman high right now, but it’s slightly difficult to sustain that excitement when we stop and think about what’s coming next from the DC Extended Universe. Sure, James Wan’s Aquaman could end up being really cool, but Justice League is the next DCEU film to hit theaters, and that one has […]
