Looks like the New Mutants that "will" get released this year is going to be the original cut that was rumored to test well.

Jena Malone, who played the young Eleanor Arroway in Contact, is now 35, which is how old Jodie Foster was when the 1997 movie came out, so they should just get her for the remake.

Also Malone is great and it's a drat shame that her career didn't take off in a bigger way.

Ghoulies is fun but nothing to write home about. Ghoulies 2, however, is an all-time creature-feature and—more importantly—it actually pays off the poster moment.

Since all the characters are CGI I wonder if Cameron plans on changing the mouth animations for the international dubs like Pixar does.

And I wonder how long it'll take for movie studios to do some deepfake nonsense with live action movies and ruin the performances for the sake of getting a wider audience.

It's funny to me that Batman Begins and Casino Royale were talked about in the same breath for a decade or so, and now we'll see three Batmen come and go in the time it took Craig to finish out his tenure. Batman Begins may as well be forgotten for how much TDK overshadowed it and how much TDKR and the Snyder films have obscured its initial good will.

Iím curious as to how many people here have even seen those so called wholesome Westerns that theyíre casually denigrating. Kinda sound like youíre just basing all these lazy sweeping generalizations on stereotypes the genre has suffered.

I watched a few episodes of Bonanza recently. It was a lot of fun, and they had episodic storytelling down to a science, but it might as well be a science-fiction/fantasy show for how much its world resembled the historical frontier.

Looks like Shane Carruth is getting out of the game after his next project. Can't say I'm surprised based on his success rate in the industry, it's got to be incredibly frustrating to battle uphill agains the Hollywood franchise machine and lack of mid-budget greenlights if you're a guy who just wants to make small, interesting, and thoughtful genre flicks. It's especially a shame that A Topiary had such a low budget and still couldn't find funding (even if I found the script fairly impenetrable a few years ago), but it's always notable to see when these sorts of guys burn out of the industry.

At least he seems to have a good head on his shoulders when it comes to what he wants to do with the rest of his life

If he's so easily cut out then it was probably nothing more than an unnecessary "Hey remember???" cameo to begin with. Not every character needs to come back for every sequel, no matter how much you may like them. That's how you wind up with Star Wars.

I love the books, and I even liked the older series which was in no way a faithful adaptation, but the previews for the new series just looked so loving obnoxious. It had that manic smug Max Landis energy all over it before I even knew he was involved.

Mario is tough because there isn't any definitive world or storyline. A movie would probably end up being some meta thing that encompasses every era and world because they're trying to keep everyone happy. I think they'd be smart to just stick to one particularly nostalgic era and adapt it, like Mario Bros. 3. Kids aren't going to know that it's from the 80s, 90s kids will think it's cool and retro, and adults will be satisfied that it's their Mario.
