With studios taking note of the surprising box office success of Deadpool, rumors are abound with other comic book movie properties that could also get the R-rating. While properties like X-Force and Spawn are still conceptual, Hugh Jackman’s The Wolverine is a definite go and will be released in 2017. But what will it be rated? If a pamphlet at Toy Fair in New York City is to be believed, it could follow in Deadpool’s steps and be rated R. However, Fox studios has not made an official announcement on the rating, and the film has yet to begin principal photography.
Last week it was revealed that June 2018 would indeed bring us a new Transformers film…but it will not be Transformers 6. Instead, it will be a smaller movie in the universe centering on Bumblebee. As of now, no director or writers have been attached to the project.
The first trailer for the April film Bastille Day has been released…the movie stars Idris Elba and Richard Madden from Game of Thrones. The pair play Americans in Paris where Madden’s pickpocket character is targeted by Elba’s CIA agent. But after bringing him in, Elba learns Madden is simply a pawn in a much bigger conspiracy game.
BUY OR SELL
Back in 2014, we first got word that Iron Man 3 and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang director Shane Black would be working on a new Predator film. Not much had been heard since then…until now. A new promo poster has been unveiled, and Black confirmed to Collider the title, for now, is The Predator. It’s still very early in the process (the movie has yet to get a release date or cast), but Kristian…do you buy or sell this first look at The Predator?
The latest film from Blumhouse productions is another addition to a horror franchise…this time that evil house from upstate New York is back in Amityville: The Awakening, for which a trailer was just released. When a family moves into the infamous residence, creepy things start to happen…especially ones involving their bed-ridden son. Jennifer Jason Leigh and Bella Thorne star.

Atique Norwazi writes: Hey guys was wondering what are y’all’s favorite Easter Eggs shown in movies? Mine is all the hidden stuff in Cloverfield and I’m excited to see what they put in the sequel. Thanks and keep up the great work!
Stephen Allegri writes: Hey guys, love the show a ton, I try and watch every single day. So my question is: when I rent a movie, where does my money go? Does a part of it go to the studio that makes the movie or does it all go to the provider I rent from? It would make me feel a bit better to know that my money might be going back to the creators of whatever movie I am seeing.
