They live again! Kind of. The Gargoyles, those badass defenders of the night who prowled The Disney Afternoon in the 90s, are officially returning, Disney confirmed today. But….sorry folks, here’s the “but”….it’s a live-action reboot.
The hugely successful horror film M3GAN will be followed by a sequel titled M3GAN 2.0. Fans have already formed assumptions about what will happen in the sequel, particularly in light of what happened at the end of the first film. Allison Williams and Violet Mcgraw will return in the show’s second season. This implies that M3GAN is not yet finished with Gemma and Kady. M3GAN’s Physical actress Amie Donald and voice actress Jenna Davis are still not asked to return.
For the record, I don’t recommend starting the day with an article about how AI will make the act of writing (basically what I’m doing right now), art, music and any other creative activity or skill obsolete. I don’t think humanity is ready, psychologically, to be rendered worthless in such a manner, nor will it ever be.
When James Wan talks, people listen. Ever since his striking directorial debut with Saw, Wan has established himself as a horror master, creating the Conjuring franchise and other movies like Insidious. Now he’s about to hit us with his latest, a supernatural thriller called Malignant.
Watching Universal fumble around with their Movie Monsters over these past few years has been embarrassing. They thought copying Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe would be as simple as slapping a “DARK UNIVERSE” logo onto the front of their Mummy remake and loading it with clues and hints about movies yet to come. They forgot that the first movie has to be engaging in the first place, or no one will care.
DC Comics is in a bit of a rough place in regards to their films. For while Wonder Woman was a hit last year (and its sequel is highly-anticipated), the arrival of Justice League was lukewarm at best. And for better or worse, the only live-action film coming out from them and Warner Bros this year is Aquaman. To that end, fans are eager to see a full-on trailer for the film. yet, with only 8-9 months left until its release, there hasn’t been one. There were were rumors stating that one would be unveiled at Wonder Con this weekend, but Director James Wan has denied that outright.
New Line Cinema, the studio behind one of modern horror’s biggest success stories (The Conjuring and its sequel), has begun production on a third film in the series, they announced today. David Leslie Johnson, who wrote The Conjuring 2, will return to write the third movie….but what of the most important ingredient, the scary movie knowhow of director James Wan? Without Wan you’d have….well, Annabelle.
Odds are pretty good you missed director James Wan’s latest horror flick, The Belko Experiment, when it briefly flickered in theaters last month. The good news on that end is that you won’t have to wait long for the home video versions to appear. Fox Home Entertainment announced today this sordid tale of office management gone wrong will come out on DVD and Blu-Ray this June.
Aquaman has been getting a lot of buzz recently. From his part in the recent Justice League trailer, to the glimpse of his solo movie that’s being done underwater, and more, it’s getting a lot of hype despite not coming out until next year. But now, it’s about to get even more lit.
