It’s Comic-Con time…sort of, and in place of big announcements we’re getting big DELAY announcements. They’re coming in so fast and hot, we can barely keep up with them all! Here’s what you won’t be watching later this year…
It doesn’t feel that long ago we had a Hansel & Gretel movie. In fact, it was the campy classic Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which proposed that not only do the candy-craving children escape their fate, they grow up to become Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton and pursue all witch-kind in retaliation. How do you top that, really?
Orion’s Child’s Play remake, which hit theaters June 21 (the same day as Toy Story 4), is heading to your electronic devices next month. Let’s hope Chucky doesn’t take them over.
The Child’s Play franchise has taken a weird turn in the last six months. Creator Don Mancini announced plans to create an eight-part miniseries for television, centered around his famous murderous doll. Then MGM announced they were putting together a Child’s Play remake with a new director, new actors, new Chucky and everything. Apparently both these projects can legally go forward, independent of each other.
On Friday NASA successfully launched and recovered its Orion spacecraft, a critical test for future Mars missions.
