We could see a reboot of The Mask with a female lead

Has it really been 25 years since The Mask made its crazy debut? It certainly has, and in the age of so many remakes and reboots it seems the creator of the film is open to the idea of not only a remake but mixing up the lead character...

Saw franchise to reboot through spin-off from Chris Rock

I'm not really sure how to tackle this it's so out of left field, but the Saw franchise is about to get a spin-off/relaunch film developed by Chris Rock. Yea, that Chris Rock. Evidently, the actor came to Lionsgate with an idea for the...

Mark Hamill is the new voice of Chucky in Child's Play reboot

Chucky has been around for what seems like forever, I remember many a night as a wee child having trouble sleeping because I couldn't stop thinking that Chucky had conspired with my toys to kill me in my sleep. Ever since the original 1988 ...

Candyman franchise reboot with Jordan Peele confirmed

Remeber Candyman? He's back! In Pog form! No, actually, movie form, though some sweet Candyman Pogs would totally round out my collection of super dated things.  As previous rumors stated MGM has partnered with Monk...

First look at more violent and bloody Hellboy in action

Hellboy is coming back, but this time he's coming back hard. Horror director Neil Marshall is taking over the reins and he's basically been promising since day one to get real weird up in this thing. This first look of Hellboy him...

Veronica Mars may return on Hulu where dreams do come true

Veronica Mars was canceled way too soon, and while it was nice to get the movie (note: I helped kickstart it), that didn't really make anyone all that satisfied. But Hulu is possibly coming to the rescue. Sources tell Variety that both...

Thankfully the MGM Child's Play reboot is happening

It's very possible that you hadn't heard -- considering that Chucky isn't on very many people's daily radar and it's been delayed years -- that MGM is planning to reboot the Chucky franchise without creator Don Mancini and pr...

Your Friends revival isn't happening

Everyone loves a reboot. Everyone loves a revival. There's no better way to sink into the cushy memory of the past than to experience something old - but made new again. In this modern age, it's increasingly probable, profitable and pawnabl...

Review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Before we begin, let’s bring all parties to the table, peacefully. When discussing Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the soft-sequel, hard-reboot to 1995’s Jumanji, there are clearly two camps of thought. One camp will p...

James Cameron is looking to launch a new Terminator trilogy

So the Terminator franchise reboot hasn't gone as planned... either time. Obviously the franchise is still considered a moneymaker for whatever reason, but no one seems to be able to get a successful film out of it anymore. Actually, w...

 
 
Apes Review photo

Review: War for the Planet of the Apes

Combing through nostalgic culture has become the norm, and unfortunately, so have the middling resulting projects. Audiences have, sadly, come to expect reboots to suffer as studios struggle to re-capture what made something popular in the ...

Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man films have been through all sorts of ups and downs. What was once the biggest comic book property on film has since been the victim of studio craziness, failed attempts, and just an overall bad reception by the time The...

Kevin Bacon has worms: Syfy brings back TV Tremors reboot

Because Hollywood is essentially a seething heap of worms mindlessly burrowing through recycled soil looking for fresh fodder, we're getting a second Syfy Tremors reboot, but this time with bacon! Kevin Bacon will reprise the roll he first ...

 
 
 
 
Baywatch Review photo

Review: Baywatch

Baywatch is another film in the same vein of nostalgic television reboots like The A-Team, CHiPs, and the crazily successful 21 Jump Street. A show known only for attractive people running in slow motion serving as a sort of softcore a...

First look Alicia Vikander as new Lara Croft, Tomb Raider

It's been a long time and many children later since Angelina Jolie donned the tank top and short shorts of Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider. So, needless to say, we are owed, nay due a remake, or a reboot, or a relaunch, or something. I forgot o...

 
 
 
Power Rangers Review photo

Review: Power Rangers

More so than any of the reviews I've written, I feel I have to preface this one a bit. Since I (literally in some cases) hold the Power Rangers brand so close to my chest, I've been keeping a close eye on the reboot since the moment it was ...

Matrix reboot may not actually be a reboot

The Matrix should not be rebooted (even if there is a right way to do it). Hell, with the way the franchise dovetailed I'm not sure if it should come back in any form. But it is, of course, and we heard it was going to be a reboot. How...

It's morphin' time in newest Power Rangers trailer

This newest trailer for Power Rangers has everything, and I mean everything, you probably we wanted to see. We see the new Command Center, Zordon, Alpha, we see the suits in action, zords, Rita Repulsa, the Megazord, and pretty much every b...

New IT reboot Pennywise sewer artwork is full of $#!+

Because Christmas is over, Entertainment Weekly debuted some exclusive new artwork from next year's IT reboot/remake, and boy is it special. The highly anticipated reboot will be the first original take on Stephen King's 1986 novel sin...

First trailer for Baywatch is a sexy reclaim to fame

I'm not sure anyone was actually looking forward to the Baywatch movie. We heard Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron signed on to star, but it wasn't on anyone's radar until now. This first trailer for the upcoming reboot actually got a few laughs...
