…and then come plummeting back into depression with news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has left his Sandman movie after creative differences with its studio, New Line, and Ron Perlman admitting Hellboy 3 will “probably never happen”.
But then come up again! – how’s this for a glass cage of emotion – with five more Star Wars movies reportedly (albeit dubiously) being in the works post-2020.
Before that galaxy of more movies far, far away, though, there is Star Wars: Episode VIII. Director Rian Johnson is being much less stricter than his predecessor J.J. Abrams on social media posts during production, sharing a Millennium Falcon set photo. And even before then, a teaser has been released for the ‘Table Read’ special feature on the upcoming The Force Awakens home entertainment release.It’s enough to make you want to invest in a dying home entertainment medium again.
In sequels, reboots and rejigs news, the first Ghostbusters trailer is still dividing opinion – with Simon Columb defending pro-feminist filmmaking, and Neil Calloway warning of eventual disappointment…and how it’s all your fault.Or, more precisely, these guys’ fault for being so damn good.
Assassin’s Creed 2 is already in development, despite the first instalment not being released until December (because announcing sequels in advance always works so well *cough* Fantastic Four *cough*); Hellraiser: Judgement has cast its new Pinhead; Arnold Schwarzenegger has met with writer/director Shane Black about The Predator; Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting 2 has started production; The Rock has shared the first look at Alexandra Daddario in Baywatch; and we got to chat to John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Dan Trachtenberg about their new movie 10 Cloverfield Lane.John Goodman is henceforth rechristened as ‘John TerrifyingMan’
And finally, to play us out, here’s a new trailer for Me Him Her ahead of its release this weekend. Can Max Landis live up to his Chronicle hype with full creative control again? Go see it to decide.
May the Movies be with you.
