James Mangold is making a Boba Fett movie

Yayyy! Logan was one of my favorite movies from last year, and if he can recapture any of the spark he put into that one for this, we'll have something special on our hands indeed. Still hoping that the new SWs fims will eventually evolve beyond nostalgia-baiting sooner rather than later, but I'm still looking forward to this one nonetheless.

I just want to know if Boba was born fat or ate a lot of Ben and Jerry's.

I'm excited for the Suspiria-remake. The trailer looks great.

I know that a lot of people don't like the idea of remaking Argento's classic, but I have faith in Luca Guadagnino coming up with something interesting. I'm not sure it will be good, but at least it won't be an easy cash grab remake.

I'm honestly surprised by how compelling that Suspiria trailer looks (but I haven't seen any of Guadagnino's work, so I wasn't sure what to expect). While clearly giallo inspired it looks like it's shooting for its own aesthetic, which is a wise choice -- no other film will ever look or feel quite like the original Suspiria.

I haven't read The Fountainhead. I found this plot description:
"An uncompromising, visionary architect struggles to maintain his integrity and individualism despite personal, professional and economic pressures to conform to popular standards."
Trump fans will love it.

Exactly

Shame he isn't doing Bioshock, though that would require a degree of self awareness

King Vidor actually managed to make a pretty good movie out of The Fountainhead, mostly by realizing the script was ridiculous melodrama and deciding to make everything a visual metaphor for boners. So maybe Zack Snyder is the right man for the job:

Let's hope Snyder casts Nathan Fillion as Roark so he can say "the building is my penis."

I mean, it wouldn't be much less blatant than this:

I have faith in Guadagnino's adaptation after seeing Call Me By Your Name and I Am Love both of which had a thick Euro aesthetic. An early November date for release is good on the studio's part.

Hmm, I dunno; it's Cooper's first movie as a director, but then again, it looks kind of genuinely emotional from the trailer... but then again, it could just play out as hokey in the actual film, so I'll just have to wait and see on this one.

I'm wary of the Coogler-less Creed sequel due out later this year, largely because I think Coogler was a big reason why it turned out to be a minor miracle. But now that I see the cast includes.....Dolph Lundgren. Urgh. That's a straight up stoopid plot development, imo. Fuck this. No amount of Sly tears can wash this development down.

Aren't those First Man title cards directly stolen from Christopher Nolan? That font is basically his calling card

Oh, we're crediting Nolan now for font types? We're already giving him too much credit as a gritty cutting-edge 21st century filmmaker... isn't that enough? :D

First-look photos from Wonder Woman 1984 reveal a surprising return...

Here it is in case you don't feel like clicking on the link (and if you couldn't already figure it out from the article's title):

Fuckin' superhero resurrections, eh? I admit, I am slightly torn on this revelation, as it seems to render his sacrifice in the original to be not so meaningful after all now, which is a shame, but on the other hand, the onscreen chemistry he had with Gadot was one of the best things about the slightly mixed bag of a film that was Wonder Woman, so I'm mostly in favor of this decision.

Apparently
he's portraying the grandson of Traynor, not Traynor himself.
I'm more interested in
Kristen Wiig as Cheetah. Quite a departure for her - I imagine she's probably putting on some muscle at the gym in preparation.
