Adi Shankar set the Internet on fire last week when he released his “dark and gritty” Power Rangers fan film and is looking to do it again with an animated James Bond bootleg.
At times there seems to be a stigma attached to movie sequels. A lot of the time they have no purpose other than to capitalize on the name recognition of their popular predecessor. But there are times where the sequels live up to what has come before, or even surpass it on some occasions. Take the jump and see which movies made the cut, and Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo sadly didn’t.
The 1981 Sean Connery movie Outland is getting a remake thanks to Warner Bros. The original western space adventure was set on one of Jupiter’s moons, where a marshall (Connery) investigated a series of mysterious deaths, and had to take on the colony’s corporate administrators when no one else on the moon would help him.Â It was an interesting piece of film – nothing spectacular, and right on par with the 1981 space movie mentality.Â The remake will be quite different. The story takes place in an orbiting city around the moon, where a cop uncovers a murderous conspiracy endangering
With the San Diego Comic-Con just around the corner, some of the weird from Hollywood is starting to surge to the forefront, as we present another installment of the Rapid Roundup of Tinsel Town Rumors.Â Some might be true, some might be outright lies, but they are all entertaining… to someone… maybe not you… maybe that cute girl on the bus would be interested in your thoughts on the subject… or maybe not.Â I don’t think looking at her and saying, “So what do you think about Cameron Diaz and the Green Hornet?” will get a dialogue started.
What film caused Alan Moore to spit vile venom at H’wood, and cause Sean Connery to retire from acting forever?Â It’s the “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”, of course (hint: it was right there in the title of this post).Â While the movie version might be touched on, the Major Spoilers Crew plan on diving into the first volume of the Alan Moore series in the next Major Spoilers Podcast. From the Wiki! According to Moore, the initial concept behind the series was initially a “Justice League of Victorian England” but quickly grew into an opportunity to merge all works of
The film rights to The Crow franchise is up for grabs, and it looks like Ryan Kavanaugh’s Reality Media will snag it.Â When the deal is complete, Stephen Norrington will write and direct a reinvention of the James O’Barr comic book. Ed Pressman produced the 1994 Alex Proyas-directed screen transfer, in which rock musician Eric Draven is murdered trying to rescue his girlfriend from thugs, and returns from the dead one year later to exact vengeance. Though the original became a gothic-style hit that grossed nearly $100 million worldwide, it is primarily remembered for a tragic accident in which star
Even though some of the story arcs these past couple of years have been hit and miss at times, Willingham continues to deliver interesting tales of the struggles between the fables and the villains of the home world, and this issue is no exception.
Or, in the case of the Highlander, two – as in a remake of the original film that starred Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Clancy Brown. The remake of the flick that kicked off the immortal franchise will be Summitt Entertainment, who picked up the rights from Davis/Panzer Productions. While I will never understand the need for a remake of an original film, that still stands up today mind you, there is some good news to go along with the story. First, Peter Davis, the producer of the original film, will be wearing the same cap for the redux, and
