stargate reboot trilogy

Director Roland Emmerich ("Independence Day") is finally moving forward with his long-planned "Stargate" sequel. In fact, the new installment in the franchise will be a reboot, and the first in a potential trilogy. It's funny how nowadays everything is planned by trilogy. The original followed the adventures of a military unit led by Kurt Russell who along with a scientist played by James Spader travel through a wormhole (the Stargate) to a planet with humans resembling ancient Egyptians who worship the god Ra, who is actually an alien. MGM and Warner Bros will partner up for the reboot and Dean Devlin will return to produce. Emmerich is currently busy with the small-budget gay rights drama "Stonewall" and he is also preparing to begin production on "Independence Day 2". The latter will be released in theaters on July 1, 2016.

channing tatum gambit movie

"X-Men" producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed her desire to see Channing Tatum play Gambit earlier this year, and now, it's official. Tatum has signed on to star as the cajun card-slinger in what will most likely be a stand-alone movie set for 2018. Although it's just a rumor for now, Channing Tatum's Gambit will probably also be a part of Bryan Singer's upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse". This announcement came from THR's Borys Kit, via Twitter:
"Yes, Channing Tatum will play Gambit. Yes, it will be for a standalone movie. And yes, watch for him to be introduced in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE."

Tatum's casting was also officially confirmed by Donner in an interview in which she stated the following (also see video below):
"Well you know he’s a rogue, Channing. He’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau, and he can handle the action, we all know that. He’s got a really good heart, because I know him personally, I did a movie with him. So I think he’ll be great, he’ll be great for Gambit, and he’s a southerner too, he’s not from New Orleans but he is a southerner and he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans."

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" was the Memorial Day weekend champion at the box-office with a $90.7 million opening to which it also added $171 million from overseas markets. This is the second-best opening for an X-Men movie, behind "X-Men: The Last Stand" which took in $102 million in its first three days. Meanwhile, last week's No. 1 movie, "Godzilla" dropped 66% from its opening weekend and occupied a distant second place with $31 million. The week's other wide release, the comedy "Blended" starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore opened with a minor $14 million, placing third and becoming one of Sandler's worst openings ever. It's also worst than the previous Sandler-Barrmore team-up, "50 First Dates", which opened to $39.8 million in 2004.

The film stars Anna Kendrick as a hard-partying 20-something who moves in with her brother (Joe Swanberg), his wife (Melanie Lynskey) and their two-year-old son after a break up, which, as you'll learn from the trailer, can only lead to trouble.

batman-v-superman-dawn-of-justice-logo-title

We finally have a title for Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" sequel previously known as "Batman vs. Superman". The film will be officially called "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Warner Bros. also released a statement along with an official logo for the movie. Why they replaced Vs. with V is still a mystery, but one thing is certain. The studio is aiming to start up the "Justice League" movie and they're through being subtle. Personally, I think the title is the definition of overkill, and it feels like maybe they're aiming too high, too quickly. But, Marvel has established its own cinematic universe, and DC feels like it needs to do the same. I only hope that they're not rushing the job, or we'll end up with another "Batman and Robin".

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" stars Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Ray Fisher and Laurence Fishburne. The release date is May 6, 2016.

transformers-age-of-extinction-payoff-trailer

A new trailer has been released for Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction". This would be the official theatrical trailer for the movie, but for some reason Paramount decided to call it a "Payoff Trailer". I don't get what the payoff is, since much of the trailer looks exactly like previous Transformers movies. The story is described in a newly released official synopsis, and it can be summed up quickly with this line: "As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs." Exactly how a robot dinosaur fits into this scheme is beyond me. The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles and Li Bingbing.

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" opens in theaters on June 27th
