Arrow joins Turtles 

IMG_4697.JPG

Star of Arrow, Stephen Amell has been cast as Casey Jones in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel. The character was previously played by Elias Koteas in the 1990 New Line adaptation.

I only made it half-way through the first episode of Arrow, before switching off. So I’m not too familiar with Amell’s work. 

The actor will join Megan Fox, who is reprising her role as April O’Neil, and Will Arnett  is returning as Vern. Plot details have yet to be revealed but fan-favourites Rocksteady and Bebop are rumored to be a part of it. 

I may well be in the minority here, but I didn’t hate the first movie. I found the back-story a little jarring, but overall I had a lot of fun with it. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for release next year.

Trailer-Inspector Gadget

IMG_4619.JPG

I was a huge fan of Inspector Gadget when I was a kid, so I’ve been following news about the planned reboot. Tomorrow Netflix will make the 3D animated show available to subscribers around the world. 

Inspector Gadget is a bumbling fool who only solves crimes with the secret help of his niece Penny, her dog Brain.

The animation looks a little cheap and not up to the standards we’ve grown to expect from 3D animation. But, I think kids will love this. 

X-Men rumour 

IMG_4611.JPG

Three things are certain in life, death, taxes, and that Fox will never make an X-Men film without an appearance from Hugh Jackman. 

It’s rumoured that Wolverine and Storm will appear in cameos, alongside Chanming Tatum as gambit in X-Men:Apocalypse. The movie starts shooting soon and will also mark Jennifer Lawrence’s last turn as Mystique. 


Vivica A.Fox returning for Independence Day 2

Independence Day 2 has been stuck in development hell for years. But it’s finally moving a head, director Roland Emmerich is back and he’s sorting out his cast. It was announced a few weeks ago that Jeff Goldblum will be reprising his role. In addition to him, we will also see the return of Vivica A. Fox, as Jasmine.

You may remember that Jasmine was Steve Hiller’s (Will Smith) girlfriend


In addition to those original cast members, we will also see Liam Hemsworth join the cast in an unspecified role. He is rumoured to be the nephew of Bill Pullman’s president character. 

The truth is out there

By now, you would have all heard that the X-Files is coming back. But hey-ho, you can read all the information here again.

The new six-part series will go in to production this summer. Creator Chris Carter and Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are all returning.

Carter said: 

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial breakz The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.” 

Rumblings of a new series have been doing the rounds since Anderson appeared on the Nerdist podcast last year. FOX officially announced the news today.

It’s thought that they will be six standalone episodes, with a small arc piecing them together.

FOX said:

“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files—one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers—and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again. The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

Starting in September of 1993, the show ran until 2002, with nine series and 202 episodes. It also begat two films, an unsuccessful spin-off and, a line of comics. 

More news as we get it. 

Ruth Negga cast in Preacher 

IMG_4579.PNG

Ruth Negga (Misfits.) has been cast as the female lead in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher series for AMC.

Preacher is based on a 90’s comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. 

The book follows Jesse Custer, a Texas preacher whom has the ability to make anyone do anything he says. 

Negga is the first actor cast in the pilot and will take the role of Jesse’s ex-girlfriend, Tulip,  who joins him on a quest to literally find God. 

She’s described as:

a volatile, action-packed, sexified force of nature, a capable, unrepentant criminal with a love of fashion and ability to construct helicopter-downing bazookas out of coffee cans and corn shine who’s not afraid to steal, kill or corn cob-stab her way out of a bad situation.

Vin Diesel nearly breaks down paying tribute to Paul Walker

IMG_4577.JPG

Vin Diesel appeared at a recent advanced screening of Furious 7, to introduce the film to the audience. 

He starts by talking about it being the hardest project he’s worked on. He then speaks in tribute of Paul Walker, whom sadly died in a car crash in 2013.

“Every time when I saw the movie at the premiere, Paul Walker and I would go off to the side and he would always tell me, ‘Vin, the best one’s still in the can.’ Well, I hope tonight that you let Pablo know that this, this is the best one for you guys”.

The cast and crew have promised that this will be a proper send off to their fallen brother.

Furious 7 is out in the UK next month.

Review-Home

IMG_4555.JPG

Home is based on the popular 2007 children’s novel The True Meaning of Smekday, the story focuses on “Oh” voiced by Jim Parsons (Sheldon-The Big Bang Theory), a misfit alien whose friendly but misguided people, the Boov, plan to take over the Earth to avoid their arch-enemies the Gorg.

After one mistake too many, Oh ends up on the run from his own kind and forms an friendship with the last human in America, Tip (Rihanna), who is trying to find her mother (Jennifer Lopez).

Nothing about Home is particularly sophisticated and doesn’t come close to other dreamwork hits such as How to Train Your Dragon. The animation isn’t ground breaking and Parsons plays Oh as Sheldon, he found his range in the Big Bang theory and doesn’t seem to have any plans to change that. 

The story has enough warmth and silliness to keep the kids entertained, but parents will find this annoyingly bland.

Home is out in the UK on March 20th.


Kevin Smith teases Mallrats sequel

IMG_4535.JPG

It’s well known that Kevin Smith’s Mallrats was a complete box office bomb. The writer/actor/director’s follow-up to the beloved Clerks nearly ended his film career. 

However it developed a huge cult following a few years later, after it arrived on VHS. I still place it in my top five Kevin Smith movies.

Smith has teased his Twitter followers with a sequel. 

It wouldn’t be unheard of for Smith to return to an old project, he was making cinematic universes before they were common place.

My problem with a Mallrats sequel is that Jason Lee and the gang and now in their mid-forties, it would be a little bit ridiculous for them to still be running round a shopping centre.
