Burton Confirmed to Direct Monsterpocalypse, But How Soon?

July 19, 2010


We first heard about DreamWorks snagging the movie rights to adapt the collectible miniatures board game Monsterpocalypse back in May. At the time, the studio was courting Tim Burton as the creative catalyst behind the flick, and it seemed even more likely that the filmmaker was on board when writer and frequent Burton collaborator John August was brought on to write the script in June. Now comes more confirmation from SlashFilm, who heard from producer Roy Lee, that: "I can confirm that Tim Burton is developing it to direct. He’s working closely with John August on story." Details on what that story is can be found below!

Grudge Writer Stephen Susco Newest Writer on Hack/Slash

November 16, 2009


Take the concept of Showtime's "Dexter", about a serial killer who kills other serial killers, turn him into a seductive vixen, and add a plethora of sex and you've got the comic series Hack/Slash. We first reported on this developing project over a year and a half ago when Justin Marks was set to adapt the series later followed by the announcement that newcomer Frederik Bond would be directing. Now Bloody Disgusting reports that Stephen Susco (of The Grudge 1 and 2) is the newest writer to tackle the adaptation that Relativity Media hopes will turn into a lucrative franchise for fans of both comic books and horror films.

Warner Brothers No Longer Master of He-Man's Universe

September 10, 2009


With the box office success of movies based on toys like Transformers and G.I. Joe, the re-invention of another iconic toy line, Mattel's Masters of the Universe, seemed like a no-brainer. But adapting the adventures of He-Man and his battles against the evil Skeletor have proven to be quite the challenge, and it looks like these difficulties have finally taken their toll on Warner Bros. Variety reports that WB and Mattel reached a mutual agreement to let the studio's option on this property expire so that Mattel can take the project elsewhere. But what exactly does this mean for director John Stevenson and producer Joel Silver?

Sony's Shadow of the Colossus Headed to the Big Screen

April 7, 2009

Shadow of the Colossus

One of the most cinematic games is now making it way towards cinemas. The Shadow of the Colossus video game is being developed by producer Kevin Misher (Fighting, Public Enemies, Case 39) at Columbia Pictures. Hollywood's new favorite fanboy writer, Justin Marks of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, Voltron, and Masters of the Universe, has been hired to write the screenplay. The game, which first hit shelves in 2005, follows a character known as Wander, who along with his horse Agro, travels across a western-style landscape to defeat enemies known as Collosi, while Wander tries to save the girl Mono.

Finally, Here's a Fight Scene from the Street Fighter Movie

February 14, 2009

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

We've shown you new photos, new posters, and new trailers, but we haven't seen a full fight scene from Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li until now. Maybe it's my desire to try and prove to audiences that this could be good or maybe it's that I'm hoping this is at least good enough to be called a guilty pleasure, I'm not sure, but I thought I should share this with all of you today anyway. At least we'll know the fight choreography will be good, because this looks a lot better than most movies I see. I just hope that the rest of it holds up this well or else it is going to be one hell of an ugly mess that no one will want to see.

A Few New Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Photos

A Few New Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Photos

Call me crazy, but I'm actually looking forward to this - even more than Dragonball! Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li hits theaters in two more weeks, in case you forgot, and promises to be at least entertaining, right? We'll find out in a couple of weeks if that's the case. Right now I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Although I'm very curious why we haven't seen another trailer or any new footage from this yet. And now Fox releases their final batch of photos? Now I'm officially nervous, which I have been all along, but this could just suck completely and I don't want it to! Check out the photos.

First Look: Black Eyed Peas' Taboo as Vega in Street Fighter

First Look: Black Eyed Peas' Taboo as Vega in Street Fighter

Let's just forget about Dragonball and focus on Street Fighter! No, that photo above is not Vega, but the one below is. One of our readers sent over two new photos from Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li tonight, one of which happened to be our first look at Black Eyed Peas' singer Taboo as the character Vega. I've also thrown up a comparison shot of the actual Vega from the video games, because it seems like this is a much less stylized version. I don't think it's right for me to critique the movie based on how he looks in a photo, because for all we know, he could kick some serious ass and we just haven't seen it yet!

Check This Out: Another, Better Street Fighter Movie Poster

January 21, 2009

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Poster

We were just sent a brand new poster for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li - and considering the last two posters they've revealed have been pretty bad, I think most people will be quite happy to see this one. Maybe? Besides the face of Kristin Kreuk, this also features some sort of Phantom of the Opera looking guy combined with Wolverine. I know it's the character of Vega, but still, it seems like they're trying to steal some of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine hype. I doubt this poster will have any impact on the buzz, but it's still cool to see something a bit better. Speaking of which, is anyone even going to see this?

Official US Trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li!

January 6, 2009

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Trailer

Fox has officially unveiled the US trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li on IGN. You've seen it in Japanese, now watch it in English! I don't know why everyone thinks this looks so bad? It's probably the best looking Street Fighter movie we'll ever get, it looks exponentially better than Dragonball, and it stars the extremely gorgeous Kristin Kreuk. What more could you ask for?! To top it all off, Neal McDonough is one of my favorite actors and as the villain M. Bison I have a feeling he's going to be one of the best parts. So give it another chance, watch this trailer in English, and try not to be too harsh.

Official US Poster for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

January 5, 2009

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

Not long after the Japanese trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li first hit a week ago, the official US poster for the film has been unveiled today as well. Fans of the Street Fighter games will definitely want to take a closer look at this poster, if only to admire it's fairly unique design. Unlike SlashFilm, I actually think this is a very cool poster that's not as bad as he's saying. I agree that the floating faces really make it look bad, but that fighting silhouette is pretty badass. It's at least eye-catching and I'm sure most people who walk by this at a theater will stop to take another look. What do you think?

Must Watch: Japanese Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Trailer!

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Trailer

Within only two months of each other, Fox will release live-action adaptations of two of the most beloved Japanese franchises - Dragonball and Street Fighter. We've already seen how awful Dragonball looks, but until today, we haven't seen much from Street Fighter. The official site has debuted a Japanese trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li which you can view below. This trailer doesn't actually look that bad, which is quite a relief considering everyone was worried we were going to get another repeat of the Van Damme movie from 1994. But alas, they may actually have created a fairly entertaining movie!

Four New Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Photos!

December 2, 2008

Five New Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Photos!

Our friends at ComingSoon got their hands on a small batch of rather kick ass photos from the upcoming Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. We haven't seen much from this film besides a few photos previously and we're patiently awaiting the first trailer. Everyone is still wondering if this will actually turn out any good? Who knows, but since these don't do much to change our mind yet, we're still going to say no. The one and only thing that is certain about this Street Fighter movie is that Kristin Kreuk looks deliciously bad ass as Chun-Li. I just hope she lives up to her good looks with some great action, too.
