At long last, Garth Ennis' controversial graphic novel 'Preacher' is finally making the transition from page to screen -- small screen, that is. After years of languishing in various stages of big and small screen development, AMC has ordered a pilot for a series adaptation of the story, which follows a preacher imbued with the voice of God as he hunts down the Lord himself, who has abandoned all creation, and forces Him to answer for His carelessness.
As we wait for more information to eventually make its way to the internet about Zack Snyder's tentatively-titled 'Man of Steel' sequel, 'Batman vs. Superman,' we have been blessed with a few tidbits of info -- specifically, one producer who took to Twitter yesterday to drop some plot details concerning the status of the caped crusader in the upcoming sequel. And those details might surprise you.
Over the weekend, director Duncan Jones paid a visit to BlizzCon 2013 and revealed some concept art from his upcoming 'Warcraft' film to a room full of players and fans. The director also divulged a few details about the plot and casting of this ambitious project, based on the popular online roleplaying game. We've been curious to see even just one bit of artwork -- or anything -- to give us an idea as to how Jones is approaching the world of 'Warcraft,' and this sneak peek is quite satisfying.
Earlier today, 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder and star Amy Adams sat down with Kevin Smith at a special fan event for the upcoming Blu-ray release, with Henry Cavill telecasting in from London -- but the making of that film wasn't all they discussed. Snyder dropped a few hints about his sequel, working under the tentative title 'Batman vs. Superman,' which, obviously features the caped crusader going up against the Man of Steel himself.
There's been a lot of speculation over whether J.J. Abrams and Disney could reach an agreement over the release date of 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' with Abrams recently scrapping Michael Arndt's script to rework the story and characters. But now we have official confirmation that the latest entry in the 'Star Wars' franchise will indeed be released on December 18, 2015, putting it right up against Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft.'
Yahoo! has debuted the trailer for 'Ride Along,' the new comedy from the director and producer of 'Think Like a Man.' The film pairs the comedy duo of Kevin Hart and Ice Cube as two mismatched guys -- a cop and his sister's boyfriend -- as they go on a crazy 24-hour ride along through the streets of Atlanta. Ice Cube, who also starred in '21 Jump Street,' plays the role of the cop -- obviously -- while Hart is his foil, a big-mouthed rookie desperate to prove his worth.
When 'The Intern' was first announced last year, the latest film from writer-director Nancy Meyers was set to star Tina Fey in the lead role. But it seems Fey has dropped out and Reese Witherspoon will take her place (even though we all know no one could ever really replace Tina Fey). Joining Witherspoon in the upcoming film is Robert De Niro, who's been really into comedies lately.
And the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' news just keeps coming. The latest rumor: '12 Years a Slave' star and likely Oscar contender Chiwetel Ejiofor was at the Bad Robot offices, which means he might have met with J.J. Abrams about the new 'Star Wars' film. Which means we might see Ejiofor in the new 'Star Wars' movie. Maybe. We hope so!
One of the best parts of the 'Thor' movies is Jaimie Alexander's Sif, one of Thor's female fighting companions who's just as badass as her male counterparts. And while we wait for Marvel to pull the trigger on a female-centric superhero movie, Alexander herself has hinted that she's been talking to Warner Bros. about joining up with their superhero team as well. Could Alexander be Wonder Woman, perhaps?
In possibly the most heartwarming news of the year, the Make-a-Wish foundation has granted the wish of five year-old Batman super fan Miles, who will get to dress as his favorite crime-fighting superhero and defeat some of the caped crusader's famous villains. The foundation is turning San Francisco into the streets of Gotham for a day just so little Miles can make his dreams come true!
