So, MGM has this teen romance called Fairy Godmother that's about to go into production. You're bored already. But! What sounds like a sappy fantasy suddenly got extremely interesting, because the studio just made an unexpectedly awesome choice when it hired a director: Carrie Brownstein.

John Wick: Chapter 2 is out in cinemas at the moment. Sure, you should go and see it. But you should also buy the Blu-ray, because it has a special feature. The best special feature.
The internet's favourite fan casting choice, Nathan Fillion, is not in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But that wasn't always the case. Last year, fans caught a glimpse of some very interesting posters of Fillion on the set of the sequel, and now writer-director James Gunn has explained what happened.
Five years ago, if you asked anyone if Spider-Man would ever appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the answer would have been no. There was no way Sony was going to share Marvel's most popular superhero with Disney. But, miraculously, it happened. That leaves only a few major Marvel superheroes who aren't in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most of which reside at 20th Century Fox. Of course, the X-Men are the biggest ones, including Wolverine, Deadpool and the rest, but there's also the Fantastic Four.
Video: A new trailer for the fifth Transformers movie is here, and boy... are many, many things happening in it. I'd say it contains a 60/40 per cent ratio of explosions to outright gibberish, which indicates to me that it may be the wildest Transformers movie since Dark of the Moon. Judge for yourself.
We still know very little about how Steven Spielberg is adapting Ernie Cline's Ready Player One. We know the cast and that it's coming out 29 March 2018, but that's about it. However, now we know T.J. Miller is playing a role invented for the film, and that the character is a huge Star Wars fanatic.
Video: Fans of the long-running series might want to skip Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant. The director's follow-up to Prometheus is not only disappointing, it somehow manages to make both films worse. It isn't a complete loss, though, thanks to talented stop-motion artist Serene Teh, who made this amazing Alien: Covenant flipbook animation.
After two massive hit films, one might think coming back for a third would be a no-brainer. But that wasn't the case with James Gunn. The writer/director of the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films recently revealed the reason why he almost didn't come back for Vol. 3 — but if you haven't seen Vol. 2 yet, you should probably leave this a mystery for now.
We've known since last spring about the planned TV show based on The Purge, the series of films that imagine an America that allows, encourages and delights in one night per year of lawless anarchy and violence. We now have an even better idea of how that concept will translate to the small screen. Long story short: It won't be set on Purge Night at all.
If there's one complaint about the later Halloween movies (though, realistically, there are several), it's how damn indestructible Michael Myers became. The masked killer escaped death so many times, he basically turned into a god. Well, writer Danny McBride has promised this won't be the case in his planned Halloween reboot.
