Star Trek 4

Karl Urban told Screen Rant he’s still holding out hope for a fourth Star Trek movie.

I’ll tell you if Paramount greenlights a fourth movie for us, I’ll be there. I love working with those guys and you know the fans love those characters. Yeah. It’d be a blast.

The Goon

Tim Miller remains confident the film adaptation of Eric Powell’s comic book may still happen.

Gotham City Sirens

Despite rumours, this cryptic Tweet from David Ayer seems to suggest he’s still attached to Gotham City Sirens.

Avengers: Infinity War

Speaking with Screen Rant, Joe Russo revealed that, yes, the Reality Stone is in Infinity War and that you will absolutely be able to tell each of the Infinity Gems apart:

Each gem has its own special power. We had to put a lot of thought into how we would represent those powers so it was clear to the audience. Not only are you dealing with a lot of characters, you are also dealing with the stones, the gems, and there’s a lot of them. So for people to keep track of all of it, we had to get really specific. I won’t divulge how we use the Reality Stone, but we do use it.

The Predator

Olivia Munn confirmed to Yahoo! the film is a “standalone”, and doesn’t rely of the audience having knowledge of the other films in the series.

It’s really cool because it’s a standalone, so we have the [same] inspiration and — we’re in the world of Predator so we have all the other movies that exist in it — but we don’t need to acknowledge them.

In the same interview, Munn recalls her first encounter with the all-practical Predator costume as “jarring”.


A new international trailer for the Flatliners remake has returned from the afterlife with a few haunting memories.

TNT president Kevin Reilly said at TCA that the first season of Snowpiercer: The Series will involve a mystery aboard the train:

[Snowpiercer] will have an epic feel because it is a heightened, larger-than-life concept. But it is really an internal potboiler of character dynamics and there will be an ongoing mystery to the first season. Jennifer Connelly, who has really made her mark for choosing great character roles, wouldn’t have just come here [joined the show] if it was just a crash bang-em-up. It was because the characters are really, really vibrant, that Josh Friedman created for the series.


The Defenders

Charlie Cox revealed to Cinema Blend that Daredevil has retired from crimefighting at the beginning of the series.

At the end of Daredevil Season 2, everyone failed. Matt failed, and the consequences were devastating. Six or so months have passed, and he’s had to completely reevaluate everything that he believes, everything that he does. And he’s decided to hang up the suit, as it were. He’s focusing all of his energies on being a pro bono lawyer. And I don’t think he has any interest, really, in being Daredevil anymore.

Halo: The Series

Microsoft has released a statement confirming the series is still in production.

Progress on the Halo Television Series continues. We want to ensure we’re doing this the right way together with a team of creative partners (Steven Spielberg and Showtime) that can help us build the best Halo series that fans expect and deserve. We have no further details to share at this time.
