J.J. Abrams Talks About The Return of Emperor Palpatine

J.J. Abrams is a fan of the past. The director made an homage to Steven Spielberg with Super 8, revitalized Star Trek for the modern age, and took a trip down nostalgia lane with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He’s far from done with the past, though, going as far as to bring back a presumed-to-be-dead villain, Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), the big bad of the Star Wars franchise. The trailer revealed his return with his signature sinister laugh, and according to Abrams, his comeback from...

Another Remake of ‘The Fugitive’ is in the Works, ‘Cause Why Not?

Not even The Fugitive can outrun the remake craze. The classic Harrison Ford-led 1993 thriller was a remake based on Roy Huggins’ television show from the 1960s.

It was a failure that didn’t rise above 20th Century Fox’s previous adaptations of the fabulous four Marvel heroes, including Mister Fantastic (Miles Teller), Susan Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B.

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Director Tim Miller Wouldn’t Work With James Cameron Again

Terminator: Dark Fate wasn’t the triumphant return-to-form longtime fans of the franchise needed to get excited about the world of Skynet again. After three less than well-received Terminator sequels, it was an evident case of franchise fatigue when the Tim Miller-directed and James Cameron-produced sequel underperformed at the box-office. To date, the action movie has made just shy of $250 million at the worldwide box-office with a production budget of $185 million. The talent, resources, and...
