  1. Let's have 'em, the infuriating bits in movies and TV shows that really f**k you off. Those little moments where the suspension of disbelief comes crashing to the floor, the plot goes to crap, there's an acting malfunction, the VFX are a letdown, or that "clever" twist makes you feel like you've been kicked in the sensitives by Mister Deus ex Machina. Here's one to start things off. It sprang to mind unbidden for some reason today, but it annoyed me even though it was quite a while since I last watched the movie it's from... Tomorrow Never Dies - the helicopter chase. I appreciate that Bond movies stretch the limits, but surely at least one person in the production team must've raised the point that this is just f**king stupid? After a motorcycle chase through building seemingly made of matchsticks, Bond and Wai-Lin are pursued by a helicopterbut get stuck in a crowd of pedestrians who hamper their progress. The pilot of the helicopter is laden with bad guys armed with fully automatic weapons decides the best option is to tilt the helicopter forward in a physics-defying maneouvre to attempt to chop up the heroes (and presumably many pedestrians) with the spinning rotors. Instead of instantly pitching the aircraft into the floor, shattering the rotor-blades, and dumping the crew to the ground in a fireball, the helicopter moves slowly forward at an impossible angle. But bond escapes into (Oh no!) a dead end. Forced back out into the street he sees the helicopter still waiting, still hovering at a bizarre angle, unmoving thanks, I assume, to some sort of anti-gravity tech that evil baddie Elliot Carver must have invented. Bond and Wai-Lin do a stunt, sliding under the rotors and throwing some handy bunting up into the helicopter tail rotor causing it to lose control, crash into a building, and explode. It disgusts me (although it's redeemed slightly by the brief cut at the end where you can see the helicopter is filled with manequins before it blows up). Let 'em roll...
  2. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tech/news/a552739/lovefilm-instant-to-become-amazon-prime-instant-video.html I used to be with Lovefilm, but left when they stopped renting games. At the time their streaming video service was nice as an added bonus on the subscription, but not something I'd have paid for on its own due to a poor library and apps only available on a very limted number of devices with rubbish update support. Not sure if this will tempt me away from Netflix, their original programming (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development) blow away Amazon's rather uninspiring efforts in that area and without the introductory offer it's actually more expensive than Netflix (only by about £7 but still). The main argument for that price is the Amazon Prime delivery which i wouldn't particularly want. Still, more competition is good for us customers, not sure I'd want to be subscribed to two streaming services, but if they significantly improve their library I might take a look eventually.
  3. It's moving ahead, being written right now, and with Maverick back in full force, rather than the initial plan for him having a small role. It's going to explore how navy aviation is changing, with dogfighting all but gone and the rise of drones. Hopefully not a remake of Stealth. It's being written by Justin Marks, whose theatrical movie credits include Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and...that's it. He's got other stuff in pre-production, but what's released isn't a great record to judge him by. Given the videogame heavy nature of the forum, I'll just mention he's also going to potentially ruin Shadow of the Colossus and Dead Space.
  4. Smith and Lawrence have officially announced a fourth movie. And come to the realisation that the third shouldn't have been named Bad Boys For Life because now this can't be Bad Boys 4 Life. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah returning to direct. https://deadline.com/2023/01/bad-boys-sequel-will-smith-martin-lawrence-1235245555/ They both posted a video on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/reel/CoFkzJDpP39 I assume Chris Rock wasn't available for the bit where Smith hit himself in the face
  5. Antoine Fuqua is to direct a Michael Jackson biopic. John Logan has written a script, so it could be good or bad. Michael will be played by Jaafar Jackson, nephew of Michael, son of Jermaine. On one hand, Fuqua says they won't shy away from his controversies. On the other, the estate is involved, so I wonder how willing they would be for that to happen. https://deadline.com/2023/01/michael-jackson-nephew-jaafar-jackson-portray-king-of-pop-in-antoine-fuqua-directed-movie-lionsgate-1235244128/
  6. Martin McDonagh's next movie will be The Banshees Of Inisheer. He's teaming up with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson again. Inisheer is a real island off the west coast of Ireland (the shipwreck in the Father Ted opening credits is there).
  7. May as well start a thread as it's now got a name. And as mentioned in the JW2 thread, Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum are back, along with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Colin Trevorrow back directing, with shooting started yesterday. Currently set for release on 11 June 2021.
  8. There were early indications of a sequel already, but now a third too, with Netflix reportedly paying $400m+ for them. Craig and Johnson both returning. https://deadline.com/2021/03/knives-out-two-sequels-netflix-400-million-plus-deal-daniel-craig-rian-johnson-ram-bergman-1234724575/
  9. Dungeons & Dragons is getting another adaptation. Chris Pine signed up to what will become an ensemble cast. Written and to be directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis, who directed Game Night and wrote Spider-Man Homecoming. Planning to start shooting in Q1 next year in Belfast. The good kind of Belfast shooting, I mean.
  10. Channing Tatum has revealed he's acquired the rights to Ghost and intends to produce and star in a remake. Randomly revealed while he was doing pottery during an interview, as you do. He indicated there would be some changes to some problematic content of the original, before getting sidetracked by his pottery and the matter didn't come back up. https://deadline.com/2023/01/channing-tatum-holds-rights-to-ghost-is-planning-remake-1235224762/
  11. I'm watching this (again) with my daughter. She adores it. And I do too. We are both watching it and seeing completely different things, in the same way I watched it when I was her age. Her favourite character is Sandy (as was mine when I was little), but mine is now Rizzo. We have the subtitles on so we can sing along to the songs, and we are up and dancing... So, Grease, love it? Hate it? Secretly love it? Wish you were Danny Zuko?
  12. David Harbour stars as Santa. John Leguizamo leads a team or mercenaries who hold a rich family hostage for the $300 million in their personal vault. Santa unintentionally interrupts their plan when leaving presents at the house and things get violent. In cinema from 2 December. Maybe it's just me, but it feels like it maybe should be a streaming movie. https://deadline.com/2022/10/violent-night-trailer-david-harbour-1235135882/
  13. Another Evil Dead. It'll even make it to a city this time, apparently. https://deadline.com/video/evil-dead-rise-red-band-trailer-unveiled-by-warner-bros/ There's 2 trailers available, red band and green band, with quite a lot of different content between them too. Green band Red band (you'll probably have to click through to watch on Youtube)
  14. Jake Gyllenhaal, Dennis Quaid, Jabouki Young-White and Lucy Liu play a family of explorers whose differences threaten their latest adventure. I'm guessing they learn their differences actually help each other in the end. https://deadline.com/2022/09/strange-world-jake-gyllenhaal-disney-animated-film-1235113701/
  15. Del Toro plans stop-motion 'Pinocchio' Del Toro teaming up with Henson Company for a stop-motion movie. Penned by Del Toro and someone called Gris Grimley who did a version of the book in 2002. I don't know him, but maybe some of you do. Oh, and one word which seems to stand out there is necrophilia...
  16. No, it's not a movie set in that London, but a stop motion animated feature about a boy in search of his dog in Japan. Due 20th April 2018. As usual, he's put together quite a cast.
  17. Kojima's getting a movie made of a videogame. Looks to be set in the world of the game rather than a straight adaptation of the game, so the actors from the game won't necessarily appear. https://deadline.com/2022/12/death-stranding-film-from-barbarian-producer-alex-lebovici-in-works-1235200209/
  18. Jon Hamm is bringing back Fletch. He's starring and producing. To be directed by Greg Mottola. It's to be based on the second book, Confess, Fletch.
  19. Welcome to the John Wick Cinematic Universe. John Wick producers have acquired a script for Ballerina, which they intend to place in the John Wick universe. As you probably guessed from the name and setting, it's a female led action flick. Said to be in the vein of La Femme Nikita, but more pulpy and stylised, like Tarantino or Vaughn. It's been written by a young newbie, taken on by Tony Stark Robert Downey Jr.'s company as an intern but is quickly rising due to apparent talent. Big fan of Shane Black, apparently. The movie is about a young woman, raised as an assassin, hunting other assassins who killed her family. Not written as a Wick spin-off, but Lionsgate beat off (fnar) WB and Universal to buy it with a view to expanding the Wick franchise.
  20. Christopher Nolan's next is Oppenheimer, a biographical thriller about J. Robert Oppenheimer, one of those who created the atomic bomb. Not due out until July 2023. He's assembling quite a cast, with Cillian Murphy as Oppenheimer and also Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Dylan Arnold, David Krumholtz, Alden Ehrenreich, Michael Angarano, Kenneth Brannagh, Scott Grimes, Christopher Denham, David Dastmalchian, Louise Lombard and Jason Clarke. It'll be shot in IMAX and, for apparently the first time ever, some sections in black and white IMAX. After falling out with WB over their pandemic simultaneous streaming release changes, he's taking this to Universal, who are promising a theatrical window even longer than pre-pandemic.
  21. Another famous super-person from the Spider-Man side of things. Well, maybe not famous. But he's getting a movie anyway. Donald Glover will produce and star. I'm not entirely sure if they mean to star as the title character, when he has already appeared as Miles Morales uncle Aaron Davis, who is also a version of Prowler. It's being written by Myles Murphy, son of Eddie. There seems to be very little information about him. https://deadline.com/2022/12/donald-glover-set-for-spider-man-film-on-villain-hypno-hustler-1235201427/

    WB and Mattel are doing a Barbie movie. Though it might be a bit different than you would expect. There's no plot details, but it'll be directed by Greta Gerwig and set to star Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken. https://deadline.com/2021/10/ryan-gosling-ken-warner-bros-barbie-margot-robbie-1234858848/ While we wait, have this
  23. The manga and anime are very popular, but it's probably going to be a shit live movie. It's being made by Netflix and Legendary. Manga and anime are both ongoing. Don't know much about the manga, but the anime is currently in it's 6th season (plus 3 movies). Needless to say, whatever this movie produces will barely scratch the surface. Set in a version of Earth where, in the not too distant past, people started manifesting superpowers as young children, called Quirks in this franchise. In the present day, about 80% of people have Quirks. They can range from devastating power to practically useless. Some people with Quirks go on to become officially licenced superheroes. They have to be licenced and unlicenced vigilantes are illegal. The main character has no Quirk, but still dreams of attending a superhero school. And an encounter with the world's No. 1 hero changes his life. It'll be written by Joby Harold. He did Guy Ritchie's version of King Arthur, the Obi-Wan series and upcoming long delayed Flash and Transformers. https://deadline.com/2022/12/netflix-legendary-my-hero-academia-1235196620/
  24. Somewhat based on an event in 1985 where a drug runner's plane crashed and a bear ate a load of cocaine. Directed by Elizabeth Banks. Stars Keri Russell, Margo Martindale, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kristofer Hivju, Kahyun Kim, Christian Convery, Brooklynn Prince and newcomer Scott Seiss. Released on 24 February. The trailer shows perhaps too many of the characters who get offed.

    They're making a movie out of a videogame. Derek Kolstad is adapting the script.
