    Everything we learned from the new Wonder Woman trailer

    Ahead of this summer’s ‘Wonder Woman’ we’ve been given a glimpse at how Diana Prince (Gal Godot) became the fearless warrior, in the Origin trailer. Similarly, ‘Wonder Woman’ will (ideally) thinly tread the origin tale before focusing on her adulthood and time fighting alongside Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor in Europe. It is, however, where the film seemingly starts, as we witness Diana grow up through the use of either flashbacks or a contextual, chronological series time-hopping scenes.

    Writers team assembles for Godzilla Vs Kong

    The original king of the monsters Kong is back on screens at last – but preparations are already underway for a rematch with that other challenger for his crown. ‘Godzilla Vs Kong’ is lined up to hit screens in 2020, following on from Warner Bros and Legendary’s 2014 ‘Godzilla,’ current release ‘Kong: Skull Island,’ and the upcoming ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters,’ a follow-up to the 2014 movie which is expected to see some more iconic Toho kaiju enter the fray. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, ‘Godzilla Vs Kong’ is intended to be “the culmination (at least at this point) of the company’s series of movies featuring silver screen super species,” so all concerned are naturally keen to get it just right.

    Cary Fukunaga Explains Quitting It: Studio Wanted “Inoffensive, Conventional” Horror Movie

    Director Cary Fukunaga has spoken at length on why he walked away from the long in-development big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s novel ‘It’ - and his remarks paint a fairly scathing portrait of his producers at Warner Bros and New Line Cinema. - Director Wes Craven Dies - James Wan Hints At Monster Movie - Laments of Nightmare On Elm Street Reboot Make-Up Artist Fukunaga had been attached to ‘It’ since 2012, and says he “was trying to make an unconventional horror film. They didn’t care about that.  “In the first movie, what I was trying to do was an elevated horror film with actual characters. Interestingly, Fukunaga would seem to allude to Freddy Krueger when hinting at his efforts to make iconic villain Pennywise “more than just the clown, after 30 years of villains that could read the emotional minds of characters and scare them.” Memorably portrayed by Tim Curry in the 1990 TV mini-series adaptation of King’s novel, Pennywise was set to be played by Will Poulter in Fukunaga’s film, although it is unclear whether or not the actor is still on board now that the project is up in the air.
