Groot has proven wildly popular in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, thanks in no small part to the introduction of Baby Groot, and even though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 doesn’t hit theaters for another four months, he’s already become everyone’s favorite character. And while such intensely beloved characters often work better in slightly smaller doses within an ensemble (like the Guardians movies), Vin Diesel, the number one source for breaking Vin Diesel news, seems to think a solo Groot spinoff is “inevitable.”
With Rogue One behind us, it’s time to look toward the next chapter in the Star Wars saga: The Last Jedi. We have 11 months until the Rian Johnson-helmed Episode VIII hits theaters, which means the shroud of secrecy is slowly beginning to fall away — starting with last week’s reveal of the official title. Though an official plot has yet to be released by Lucasfilm, we may have a few clues about what to expect from the upcoming sequel, as Johnson has revealed some of the films that influenced his direction.
This week, Milla Jovovich’s Alice (we know her name is Alice because she says “My name is Alice” like, 12 times in every movie) returns to the big screen to battle viral zombies yet again in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. As the title implies, this is to be the last sequel in the franchise, which would be great because Milla clearly deserves a nap — I say “would be” because, as movie franchise history has taught us, there is no such thing as a final chapter. To prove it, we’ve collected 15 movie sequels with titles that promised they’d be the last; they most definitely were not.
Over the last several months, Black Panther has assembled a killer lineup, with names like Forest Whitaker, Sterling K. Brown and Angela Bassett among the recent names joining Chadwick Boseman— as if we weren’t already excited for T’Challa’s first big screen solo outing. Today, director Ryan Coogler and his amazing ensemble of actors officially started production on Black Panther, and Marvel has delivered the first plot synopsis with some new story details.
The tale as old as time (OK, that’s an exaggeration) is returning to theaters this spring with Disney’s new live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. With less than two months left to go until the studio’s latest reimagining (and guaranteed box-office hit) arrives, Disney has revealed when we’ll see the new — and final — trailer, and as an added bonus, they’ve thrown in some enchanted motion posters.
To celebrate the birthday of DC’s Geoff Johns, Joe Manganiello has shared a new photo of Deathstroke, and it’s…a little blurry. In case you’d forgotten, the actor is playing the Batman villain in Ben Affleck’s solo film, simply titled The Batman — but we might get a peek at the baddie in action a little sooner than that, as Deathstroke is rumored to be making a brief appearance in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Last October, Legendary tapped Krampus filmmaker Michael Dougherty and co-writer Zach Shields to pen the screenplay for Godzilla 2; not long after, we exclusively reported that Dougherty was also in talks to direct the follow-up to Gareth Edwards’ blockbuster revival. At the time, more than one source informed us that it was pretty much a done deal, but Legendary didn’t make Dougherty’s hiring publicly official until today.
The official title of the next chapter in the Star Wars saga was announced this morning, and there’s already been a little speculation among fans about who The Last Jedi might be — is it Luke Skywalker (the obvious choice) or Rey (the second-most obvious choice)? As it turns out, we already know, and by “we,” we mean you do, too…unless you didn’t see The Force Awakens. But observant fans will tell you that there may be a third option — one that’s less apparent, but a little more intriguing.
♫ Whooo is the man who will do what he can to direct the Shaft reboot for New Line? ♫ Story! Ya damn right. That’s Story as in Tim Story, the director of the Ride Along movies and frequent Kevin Hart collaborator. Story has reportedly signed on to helm that long-gestating reboot of the classic detective series — so how long before Kevin Hart signs on to play Shaft’s wise-cracking sidekick?
At some point we’re all going to have to stop asking, “Is this real life?! Is this really happening right now?!” The daily proliferation of surreal news headlines will never feel normal (nor should they), but it’s the frequency our country is operating at now, and it will likely continue at this pitch for the next four years, which officially kicked off today. In the latest episode of The Surreal Life, Donald Trump basically plagiarized Bane, Tom Hardy’s mush-mouthed villain from The Dark Knight Rises, in his inauguration speech.
