Look at How Tentacle-y This New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Creature Is
It wouldn’t be a Star Wars movie without a few bizarre looking space creatures to remind us all that humans aren’t the only people running around in this faraway galaxy. And as we journey to a new planet, Ahch-to (bless you), we’re sure to meet at least one mysterious beastie lumbering around the planet’s surface. Today brings an image — an artist’s rendering, not a photo from the actual movie — of one of these new creatures Rey and Luke might meet during their journey.
Joel Schumacher Wants Us to Know That He’s Very Sorry About ‘Batman & Robin’
Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin will go down in history as one of the worst superhero movies ever made, and twenty years after its release, Schumacher himself is very much aware that he messed up.

‘Cannonball Run’ Remake Sets Director Rawson Thurber in the Driver’s Seat
The Fate of the Furious. Cars 3. Mad Max: Fury Road. We just can’t seem to get enough of car race movies these days, and Warner Bros. is about to capitalize on audiences’ love of automobiles and equal love of nostalgia with a remake of The Cannonball Run, the Fast & Furious of its day that spawned two sequels and had perhaps THE ensemble cast. While the likes of Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, and Farrah Fawcett are unlikely to return, Warner Bros. is in the midst of assembling a new murderers’ row of stars for the planned reboot. But first, a director. Today brings the news that Central Intelligence’s Rawson Thurber will be the one to helm what might be the start of a new diesel-fueled franchise.
‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Clip Introduces Us to Nova
War for the Planet of the Apes is important for two reasons: it’s the last in this current prequel trilogy, and its events will finally catch this series up with the original Planet of the Apes by introducing another key character. You might’ve noticed there’s a young human girl in some of the trailers. That’s Nova, the mute woman we meet in the original film who becomes Charlton Heston’s human companion.
Robin Wright’s ‘Wonder Woman’ Character Antiope Will Be in ‘Justice League’
Justice League is set to be Warner Bros. biggest superhero team-up film yet, with metahumans we’ve met and a few we haven’t coming together to fight against injustice. Even those who aren’t traditionally members of the team are in for this fight, including a few of Wonder Woman’s Themysciran compatriots.
Damon Lindelof Might Know Something We Don’t About Where the ‘Alien’ Franchise Is Heading
Way back when Ridley Scott was just starting to work on his Alien prequel Prometheus, he hired Damon Lindelof to refine the script Scott had worked on with Jonathan Spaihts. Lindelof’s job was to focus more on the Engineer aspects of the film and less on the Alien bits, creating what turned out to be a totally bizarre, inventive take on the foundation of Scott’s Alien universe. Because he was so steeped in the Engineer lore, Lindelof might have some idea of where the franchise plans to go after the events of Alien: Covenant.

Chris Hemsworth Tells Us How He Really Feels About the Avengers in an ‘Infinity War’ Set Video
Chris Hemsworth seems to still have a bit of a chip on his shoulder from being mostly excluded from Captain America: Civil War. Sure, he gets to be back with his buddies for Avengers: Infinity War, but he managed to take a little time during a break on set to work some of his frustrations out.
‘The Mummy’ Has a Fate Worse Than Death Planned for Tom Cruise
Universal’s Dark Universe is kicking off with Tom Cruise’s The Mummy, which is only a week away(!!!). While we know that this movie will, indeed, feature a mummy who is hunting down Tom Cruise for some reason (I mean, weren’t we all, at some point in our lives?) a few things still remain a mystery. What is Russell Crowe’s Dr. Jekyll’s role in all this? How did Cruise and his team of archaeologists stumble upon the mummy’s tomb anyway? And why does she want Tom Cruise so badly?
Man, Patty Jenkins’ Vision for ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Sounds Awesome, Especially If You’re Jane Foster
Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman is about to finally hit theaters this weekend, but there was a time when she was part of an equally as high-profile superhero movie gig a few years ago. Jenkins was the director of Thor: The Dark World for a few months, before she and Marvel had to part due to those pesky “creative differences.” But Jenkins isn’t sore over it — she’s currently responsible for the highest-reviewed DC movie yet.
