After a few barren weeks at the box office, four new (well three new and one rejiggered) movies hit theaters including the highly anticipated Into the Spider-Verse, the latest from Clint Eastwood, a Peter Jackson backed YA adaptation and a PG-13 Deadpool for the whole family.
The Purge may be coming to an end, an Indiana Jones land may be coming to Disney Hollywood Studios, SyFy bringing back Killer Klown from Outer Space and Critters, the Boba Fett movie is dead, the new Twilight Zone is remaking a classic episode and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
Thousands of years after the devastating “Sixty Minute War”, society has reformed around gigantic mobile cities, the larger ones like London preying on the smaller ones for their resources in the upcoming adaptation of Philip Reeve’s Mortal Engines book series.
Produced by Peter Jackson, Mortal Engines is an adaptation of Philip Reeve’s novel of the same name that is set in a post-apocalyptic future where cities have become giant traveling vehicles that battle each other for resources.
Another addition to Fargo Season 3, a Stalloneless Rambo moving forward at Millennium, a possible new director for Deadpool 2 and much more in this week’s News Shotgun.
A serial killer in life, Johnny Bartlett continues with his obsession of getting the highest body count in history by killing the living as a ghost.
The final chapter of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy arrives this December as Bilbo and the dwarf company must protect the newly reclaimed Erebor from Smaug and an ever-growing Orc army.
There’s been a lot of grumbling and arguing about whether or not The Hobbit should have been one movie instead of the three it is now but if the next two movies are as exciting and fun as this one, we are in for another great fantasy trilogy from Peter Jackson.
This week in the News Shotgun we have some casting news, AMC reairing The Walking Dead in black & white, Top Gun coming back in 3D, The Asylum finally gets sued and much more.
As usual, there’s a ton of movies coming out the week of Christmas including Django Unchained and there’s also a little movie called The Hobbit coming out this month as well.
