Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau — which can hardly be called “Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau,” as he was fired from production only three days after it started — joined the storied halls of notoriously troubled film production disasters shortly after its release, and was even the subject of a documentary, David Gregory’s Lost Souls, that attempted to explain how the movie went so wrong. Luckily for Stanley, his long-in-development passion project might be resurrected again, twenty years after the first try.
Production on Godzilla: King of the Monsters is currently underway, and this morning director Michael Dougherty sent a message to fans of the franchise: be on the lookout for Easter eggs. He tweeted out a photo of a prop that’s a major callback to the Godzilla film that started it all.
It’s a big deal when you pass a follower milestone on social media. You feel like, finally, you’re being HEARD, you’re being SEEN, and, naturally, it warrants some kind of celebratory post to commemorate the day. But not all of us can celebrate with Chewbacca, the Chewbacca, by our side. Fortunately for Emilia Clarke, she can.
Hollywood has been itching to do something with The Twilight Zone for quite a while now, but nothing seems to be sticking. Today brings news that Warner Bros. has officially hired on another screenwriter to pen the script: Christine Lavaf, of Fringe, Falling Skies, and Warner Bros. MonsterVerse fame.
Just because War for the Planet of the Apes is poised to finish up the current Apes trilogy, that doesn’t mean it can’t introduce a few new characters into the mix. We’ve already met Nova, the mute human child that’ll connect this trilogy to the original movies, but there’s another new face joining Caesar’s crew. Bad Ape, portrayed by Steve Zahn, is a similarly altered chimpanzee who learned to talk when the Simian Flu hit and wiped out most of humanity, and he brings news to Caesar’s tribe of an ape zoo that he escaped from.
Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt won’t be the only familiar face returning for Mission: Impossible 6: Michelle Monaghan’s Julia, Hunt’s wife and a Mission: Impossible mainstay from the third film all the way to Ghost Protocol, is coming back to the series.
Steven Spielberg’s Pentagon Papers movie, recently retitled The Papers (before it was The Post), has one of the most ridiculously stacked casts in recent memory — and it just recruited more members. Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, Zach Woods, and Pat Healy have signed up help out Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep investigate America’s involvement in the Vietnam War.
The owner of the largest privately-owned Star Wars memorabilia collection in the world, known as Rancho Obi-Wan, has announced today that it has been systematically robbed over a period of many months from 2015 to 2016. Steve Sansweet, who offers tours of the ranch and its many pieces of Star Wars history, says that not only do the items taken make up about $200,000, it appears to be an inside job.
With production soon underway on Godzilla: King of the Monsters, it’s time for Warner Bros. and Legendary to start checking the boxes of the next installment: Godzilla vs. Kong. Much like movies with “vs.” somewhere in their title, this one will feature two characters likely beating the living daylights out of each other, perhaps before becoming friends by bonding over their moms. And since this monster cinematic universe is akin to indie directors moving from the sandbox to the big kid playground, Warners has settled on their next small-time director for their big-time blockbuster. Adam Wingard, whose credits include You’re Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch, has been tapped to helm Godzilla vs. Kong.
It’s that time again: time to round up everything coming and going from all the streaming services at the start of the new month. Netflix has a pretty fantastic slate for this June, which includes their Cannes contender Okja, directed by Bong Joon-ho and starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal. There’s also a few popular 2016 releases like Xavier Dolan’s It’s Only the End of the World, and Catfight, that movie about Sandra Oh and Anne Heche beating the living daylights out of each other. And if you want to hear a bunch of animated plants sing Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” give Trolls a shot.
Amazon has just announced their upcoming June slate, and subscribers will be getting quite a few treats next month. Two highly anticipated (and very good) Amazon Original movies are joining the site: Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, a film that, if you’re not already, will make you fall in love with Adam Driver, and Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar winner The Salesman. If you missed either of these when they hit theaters during awards season, now you have all the time in the world to enjoy them.
Hugh Jackman’s The Greatest Showman, a musical about the life of famed circus director P.T. Barnum, had a tough time getting off the ground. Before La La Land, if you can believe there was such a time, studios looked askance at any who suggested a rebirth of the Hollywood musical. But Jackman and director Michael Gracey were not to be deterred, working like mad to get their circus musical off the ground, and it paid off. The Greatest Showman will hit theaters this December, and the first images hit the Internet today.
