Comic Book Legend Stan Lee, 95, Passes Away
Comic book writer, editor and publisher Stan Lee has passed away, according to The Hollywood Reporter and multiple other sources. He was 95 years old. It would be impossible to understate Lee's influence upon multiple generations of comic book readers and creators, as well as movie lovers and filmmakers. He has left a lasting mark on popular culture, thanks to the textured and beloved characters he created and/or developed, including Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Ant-Man, The Mighty Thor and Iron Man. His characters were often superpowered, yet they were also recognizably human, dealing with issues in the real world and their own personal flaws.

In 'Widows,' Crime Gets a New Face; Here's Everything We Know
Crime thrillers offer audiences the opportunity to live vicariously through the heroes and villians portrayed on screen.

Widows flips the book, so to speak, smashing stereotypes and placing a strong group of women at the heart of an intense crime drama. The film has received very positive advance reviews ahead of its wide opening on November 9. Here's everything we know about Widows. What's it about?

'The Color Purple' Will Hit the Big Screen Again in Musical Form; Here's Everything We Know
As long as you're going to remake a movie, you might as well do something different with the material. That's why musical remakes are so much more interesting than straight rehashes. They tend to follow the original movie being turned into a Broadway musical with that stage production then being re-adapted for the screen.

'Clueless' Is Being Remade; Here's Everything We Know
Whether it's Clue or Clueless, Hollywood is revisiting all the modern classics. How can something so unique and beloved as Clueless be picked for a redo? Well, even though the original is the quintessential '90s teen comedy, complete with a ska song on the soundtrack, it's already a remake of -- or modernized take on -- Jane Austen's Emma. So, why not give it another update? Deadline reports that a Clueless remake is in early development at Paramount, but details are so scant that it's not clear if the movie will allow for the original stars to reprise their roles from the 1995 version. Still, what is known from the initial announcement sounds pretty promising, so there's no reason for fans to start buggin'.  Here's everything we know about...

The story that inspired Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms dates back to the early 19th century, adapted most famously into a ballet that became enormously popular in recent years.

Now the story has been adapted into a new adventure that looks dazzling; it will open in theaters everywhere on November 2. Here's everything we know about the holiday film; watch the trailers, clips and other videos below. What's the story? Inspired by E.T.A.

Comics on Film: 'Wonder Woman 1984' Moves to Summer 2020
In a new demonstrated confidence from Warner Bros. for the forthcoming Wonder Woman 1984, the follow-up to last year's DC Comics-based hit starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, the release date for the sequel has been pushed back from November 2019 to June 5, 2020. It will be only the second DC Comics-based film since 2013 that will be opening in the prime summer category, since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opened in March of 2016, Suicide Squad in August that same year at the end of the summer season, and Justice League premiered in November 2017. The first Wonder Woman film came out in June of 2017. The renewed confidence in Wonder Woman 1984 may mean good things for both the forthcoming sequel, as well as other DC Comics-based movies that are on the schedule...

Next 3 Major Horror Remakes: 'Pet Sematary,' 'Hellboy,' 'Grudge'
Opening in only two theaters in New York and Los Angeles, the new version of Suspiria (above) earned $179,000, which gives it the highest per-theater average of the year. Obviously, Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of Dario Argento's classic thriller has intrigued moviegoers beyond the core horror audience. Indeed, it should be fascinating to see if that continues when Suspiria opens across the country on Friday, November 2. Guadagnino's version is longer and more expansive than Argento's original, though no less shattering. How will future horror remakes approach the original? Here are three major, upcoming projects that promise to unsettle and disorient even seasoned viewers. 'Pet Sematary' The first trailer for the remake (above) touches on familiar...

Richard Linklater to Write and Direct a Bill Hicks Biopic; Here's Everything We Know
Richard Linklater has proven himself a versatile filmmaker over the years, but he's never attempted a biopic. He's made a movie about real people, namely Bernie, but he's never depicted the life of a famous figure. Until now. According to Collider, the Boyhood and Dazed and Confused helmer will write and direct a movie about the late stand-up comedian Bill Hicks.  Here's everything we know about the project so far: Who was Bill Hicks? Hicks was a comedian who began doing stand-up in the 1980s and had begun to find fame in the early 1990s before dying of cancer at the age of 32 in 1993. His material was controversial, enough for an entire performance to be cut from Late Show with David Letterman, and eventually became about social commentary over...

Now it's time for the relationship of Lennon and Yoko Ono to make its way to the big screen. There was something to this effect in the '80s on British TV (featuring Doctor Who's Peter Capaldi as George Harrison) but now, according to Deadline, the Beatle and his bride are getting a truly prestige take on their life together from director Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club) and the screenwriter behind the upcoming music biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.  Here's everything we...

Defying modest expectations, the low-budget thriller earned the best opening weekend in the history of the horror franchise, taking in an estimated $77.5 million at the box office; critical reaction has been favorable as well. Halloween picks up 40 years after the events in the original, ignoring everything that happened in all past sequels.

New Indie When critics and audiences disagree about a horror movie, it's usually because the reviews were bad. But the opposite happened with Hereditary (Lionsgate Home Entertainment), which generated strong buzz out of Sundance and in early reviews, only to leave some paying audiences shaking their heads. Now that this acclaimed film has made it to home video, you can overstep the hype on both sides and make up your own mind; for me, the debut feature from writer-director Ari Aster might make a few missteps, but it's still a brilliantly moody and evocative piece about a family's disintegration, bolstered by strong work from...

In this column over the years, we've spoken a number of times about how Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014 was one of the most delightfully unexpected successes to ever come along in the history of comic book cinema. Everything aligned for it: a writer and director who got inside the material, a studio who gave it the resources it needed, and a studio head who understood how these characters could potentially connect with people. History may not have fully repeated itself with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 last year, but it was certainly one of the better sequels to come along in a while, largely continuing what people loved and expected from the characters they'd been introduced to a few years prior. This past July, Marvel Studios and the Walt Disney Company...

Night Shyamalan had long teased a follow-up, and finally one arrived covertly as the 2016 thriller Split, which revealed itself as a secret spin-off in its final moments. Now, we're also getting a more direct sequel to both Unbreakable and Split, called Glass. This one will see the return of Samuel L. Jackson's titular villain character from the 2000 original, as he joins his heroic nemesis played by Bruce Willis and fellow bad guy The Beast (aka The Horde), played by James McAvoy.

First 'Pet Sematary' Trailer Eerily Resurrects a Classic; Here's Everything We Know
Paramount has been developing a remake of Pet Sematary since 2011, but the massive success of It has Hollywood scrambling to catch the heat of Stephen King mania. The favor for the author's work has already continued into Netflix's Gerald's Game and 1922. Now we're looking at a new adaptation of Pet Sematary coming soon to theaters. With just under six months left until the remake arrives, Paramount has released the first trailer for Pet Sematary, and what a great and appropriately eerie trailer it is while still being careful about spoilers.

James Gunn to Write and Maybe Direct 'Suicide Squad 2'; Here's Everything We Know
Suicide Squad is one of the highest-grossing of the Worlds of DC movies ($747 million worldwide). It's also one of the worst-reviewed of that franchise (28% on Rotten Tomatoes), also known as the DC Extended Universe. The former being more important to the studios, there was no doubt the comic book adaptation, focused on a team of villains gathered to save the world, would get a sequel. Improving upon the original would be a bonus, and doing so would be an easy goal.  Various filmmakers have been linked to Suicide Squad 2 as possibilities to replace the original's David Ayer, most recently Gavin O'Connor (The Accountant). The latest, however, is a very interesting pick. James Gunn (pictured), who recently parted ways with Disney and Marvel without...

Patty Jenkins Might Direct Margot Robbie in 'Barbie'; Here's Everything We Know
Barbie is finally ready to hit the big screen. Yes, we've seen plans for a movie based on the iconic doll for a few years now, including incarnations that were to star Amy Schumer (cast in 2016) and Anne Hathaway (cast in 2017), but the latest development sounds more promising than ever. Firstly, according to The Hollywood Reporter, there is an update on the studio that's working with Mattel on the project. Warner Bros. has taken over from Sony, which let its deal for a Barbie movie fall through and revert back to the toy company. Secondly, Margot Robbie, who already has one iconic role set up at Warner Bros. -- DC's Harley Quinn -- is now in talks to star in the movie, which she would also produce through her company, LuckyChap.

'Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween' Promises Scary Surprises; Here's Everything We Know
Back in 2015, Goosebumps brought R.L. Stine's popular young-adult horror series to life with a very entertaining tale that married monsters, mayhem and the macabre. The big-screen adventure danced lightly around the potentially disturbing horror elements to keep the emphasis on family fun, which made the movie unexpectedly entertaining and appealing to adults as well as children. The young lead characters also drew in a young-adult audience. The sequel, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, will soon be spooking moviegoers, so it's a good time to catch up with everything we know about the film. What's it about? The sequel is an all-new adventure that revolves around three young people and Slappy the dummy, who apparently is in a trouble-making mood. Once again, a book...

Final 'Overlord' Trailer Reveals Unexpected Wartime Terrors; Here's Everything We Know
  The first R-rated release from J.J. Abrams' production company Bad Robot, best known lately for surprise deliveries of Cloverfield movies, is Overlord, a film set during World War II. When we first heard about it, speculation ran rampant that it tied into the Cloverfield universe somehow, but instead it appears to be a completely stand-alone movie, albeit one with plenty of footage that justifies its rating.    The final trailer has now been released. It starts off like it's a normal World War II suspense drama. But soon enough, we see the real horror of Overlord, and it's not the usual wartime terrors.   Here's everything we know about the thriller. Watch the trailer(s) below.    What's the...

Comics on Film: A Heartfelt Goodbye to Chris Evans as Captain America
One of the hardest realizations that people have to face is that all good things come to an end. This is a universal constant regardless of what aspect of life you're talking about. From something as profound as childhood to something as debilitating as the loss of a beloved friend or family member - human or pet - the things that people are blessed with always have a beginning, a middle, and an end. That old adage remains true for popular culture, too, because when you deal with a set of stories or characters developed and embodied by people, something will always come along to take those people somewhere else. This is no truer represented than in this week's major Marvel Studios news: actor Chris Evans tweeted out his gratitude to storytellers, fans, cast...

Comics on Film: Messy Film Makes 'Venom' Worthwhile
Venom is a movie that really shouldn't work, nor would most Spider-Man fans think it's a thing that should even exist. After all, Eddie Brock is a character who got his start first as an antagonist and later as a supporting character for the Webhead himself; his solo outings in the comics - depending on who you ask, of course - have a somewhat spotty reputation. Having Venom exist in a cinematic world unto himself without Spider-Man just seems kind of … wrong in a lot of ways, and most people who like Venom because they love Spider-Man would be completely justified in feeling that way. Still, against all odds and even despite a myriad of structural problems and the fact that the work seems to be drowning in clichés, something remarkable tends...

See Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in New ‘Hobbs and Shaw' Photo; Here's Everything We Know
Update: In recent years, we've become accustomed to seeing Idris Elba in heroic roles, as in Thor: Ragnarok (above). So it's somewhat surprising to hear that he will portray a villain in the first spin-off from the Fast and Furious series, per Variety. Elba came to attention as an elegant drug kingpin on HBO's The Wire and since then has impressed in a wide variety of roles. He played a villainous role in Star Trek: Beyond not too long ago, which actually seemed atypical at this point in his career, but we look forward to seeing what sort of antagonist he will be playing in the new action thriller. (Read onward to learn everything we know about the upcoming spin-off movie.)   If you loved the antagonistic chemistry between Dwayne Johnson and Jason...

Rosie Perez Joins 'Birds of Prey'; Here's What We Know
Margot Robbie will reprise her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn in the upcoming Birds of Prey; she will also serve as a producer. Her character was very much her own woman; smart, strong and sassy, she did whatever she felt was best for herself in any particular moment. So it should be exciting to see her lead the way in a project that's been described as a "girl gang movie." Rosie Perez (in Pineapple Express, above) leads the latest casting news, landing an intriguing role that sounds perfectly suited to her many talents. We have details about that, along with everything else we know, below. Who are the Birds of Prey? In DC Comics, the superhero Black Canary first appeared in 1947. She has often teamed up with other heroic crime fighters through the years...

Whether you're intrigued about the life of Dick Cheney or you just want to see Christian Bale's chameleonic performance as the former Vice President, Vice is a going to be a hot ticket this Christmas. The biopic is also sure to be a big awards contender, though all its attention is sure to be as politically divisive as Oliver Stone's W. was 10 years ago.  The first poster and trailer for Vice has arrived, and now we can see just how unrecognizable and magnificent Bale is as Cheney. The actor has gained weight and put on prosthetics for the role, making his appearance anything but comparable to how he looks in, say, the Dark Knight trilogy. Sam Rockwell as President George W.
