One of the truly great actors of our time has passed away. It was announced this morning that Alan Rickman died after a battle with cancer. To some, Rickman will be most remembered as one of the greatest screen villains of all time Hans Gruber in Die Hard, for younger audiences he’ll be most remembered as Professor Severus Snape, and for others any one of dozens of other memorable roles. Alan Rickman was 69.


Back in 2013, it was announced that producer Mark Gordon and his company had secured the film rights to The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair and had hired Life of Pi screenwriter David Magee to write the script. All has been silent since then until recently our own Haleigh Foutch had a chance to speak with Gordon during the TCAs, who said that plans are still in motion to try to bring the franchise back to the big screen. Gordon said the following:

“We’re hoping to be able to make the movie very shortly. We’re very excited about it… it’s all going to be a brand new franchise. All original. All original characters, different directors, and an entire new team that this is coming from.”

Last night on Conan, Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder debuted a new clip from the upcoming film. In context, it’s the scene where Batman asks Superman: “Tell me, do you bleed?” Batman v Superman hits theatres on March 25th.

OPENING THIS WEEK (brought to you by AMC Theatres)

First up is the sequel Ride Along 2. Rookie lawman Ben Barber (played by Kevin Hart) aspires to become a detective like James Payton (played by Ice Cube), his future brother-in-law. James reluctantly takes Ben to Miami to follow up on a lead that’s connected to a drug ring. The case brings them to a homicide detective and a computer hacker who reveal evidence that implicates a respected businessman. It’s now up to James and Ben to prove that charismatic executive Antonio Pope is actually a violent crime lord who rules southern Florida’s drug trade.

And also opening is the new animated film Norm of the North. With help from his furry sidekicks, a polar bear (voiced by Rob Schneider) travels to New York to stop a maniacal developer from building luxury condominiums in the Arctic.

James Degnan writes: It seems like every time that you guys talk about Captain America: Civil War on Movie Talk or Heroes, there’s always seems to be a lively discussion about whether or not Capt or Tony is going to die. I was just wondering why you haven’t considered Bucky as a possibility? I figured that Bucky is a great choice because his death could be the defining moment of the film that would end Capt and Tony’s “civil war.”

Jenreimei Kamei writes: Any news for the Movie Red 3? Thanks guys and bring on the filthy.

Eric Code writes: While Lawrence Kasdan has said the Han Solo movie is not going to be an origin story, does he realize Han defected from the Empire and saved Chewie’s life, leading to the life debt? You could argue that this is no longer canon, but then why is Chewie so loyal to Han, then? I am concerned. That would be an awesome story.
