LEGO Movies get Release Dates and Descriptions

Last year the LEGO Movie was a huge surprise hit, taking the common building block toy and using it to construct a film that was both entertaining and thought-provoking (yet somehow didn’t get an Animated Feature Oscar nomination, seriously Academy?). This has given was to a series of films set to come out in the next few years. Screen Rant provides the following rundown of what’s in the works: Continue reading LEGO Movies get Release Dates and Descriptions

Scarlett Johansson Cast in Ghost in the Shell

I’ve never been a huge fan of the anime genre on the whole (I know I lost a lot of you with that statement). There’s some that I like such as My Neighbor Tutoro and Spirited Away from the Studio Ghibli, Akira and Ghost in the Shell (sorry but I never got into Pokemon or Dragon Ball Z). Like any successful foreign movie, it should come as no surprise that there is going to be an American remake of one of the most popular anime films, Ghost in the Shell.

“Never give up, never surrender”

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that a television series based on the 1999 film Galaxy Quest is in the works at Paramount Television.  The film’s premise focused on the cast from cancelled Star Trek-esque TV show who were then accidentally transported to a real spaceship and believed to be the characters they pretended to be on the show.  It was a fun Star Trek spoof and a clever film as a whole.  The movie sported a great cast of characters with Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen), Gwen DeMarco (Sigourney Weaver), Alexander Dane (Alan Rickman) as well as Tony Shalhoub and Sam Rockwell and it’s one of those comedies that I have to revisit each year.  While not a blockbuster, the film did turn a profit ($90.6 million worldwide gross on a $45 million budget) and there was potential for sequels.
