Making a movie is a kind of magic. A group of talented people, working together to make you believe something that’s not real. Making a movie about magic takes that up a notch, because he audience expects to be wowed not just by the movie, but the magic too, which requires a certain level of awareness. An awareness…
Everyone loves a good magic trick, and the success of the first Now You See Me almost felt like one. It had a great cast and premise, but no one could have guessed it would be a breakout hit or merit a sequel. Yet here we are, along with the newest trailer for Now You See Me 2, due June 2nd.
For good or ill, the fact there’s a Jem and the Holograms movie is kind of thanks to Justin Bieber.
We're a little worried about the Jem and the Holograms movie, and the film's very young cast doesn't alleviate our fears. With filming just days away, we now know who will be playing four members the outrageous eponymous band.
Looks like the "movies based on '80s toylines" genre is no longer just a boys club. Former doll and cartoon franchise Jem and the Holograms will rock their own live-action movie, to be directed by G.I. Joe 2's Jon M. Chu.
Odd Thomas is an adaptation of a successful novel by Dean Koontz. But the actual movie has a breezy, quippy tone and a small-scale storyline that remind me of nothing so much as a low-budget 80s adventure film. It's not a great movie, or even a particularly good movie, but it's fun and cute and doesn't outstay its…
The Hollywood Reporter reports from Hollywood that the long-in-development Masters of the Universe has a new scriptwriter — namely Terry Rossio, the co-writer of big-budget movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lone Ranger and the Zorro films — but G.I. Joe 2's Jon M. Chu is no longer attached to direct.
Director Jon M. Chu is hard at work on both the G.I. Joe: Retaliation sequel and the long-in-development-hell Masters of the Universe movie. While the former depends on The Rock's schedule, and the latter depends on when G.I. Joe 3 films, Chu is determined to make sure He-Man returns to movie theaters.
Many months ago, toy movie G.I. Joe: Retaliation was packed away to be rewritten and re-released this March. And now here it is with a more action-centric trailer. Gone is the camp, replaced with even more guns, explosions and air sword fights. We kind of loved how self-aware the old trailers were, so let's hope…
Due to The Avengers scaring all other movies back to 2013, Jon M. Chu — director of G.I. Joe: Retaliation — is freed up to make the much-fabled Masters Of The Universe movie (as soon as he's done converting Retaliation into 3D, that is).
Yes, the first G.I. Joe movie wasn't exactly a masterpiece. But the sequel has a script by the Zombieland team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and it's being directed by Legion of Extraordinary Dancers creator Jon M. Chu. So you know, we oughta give it the benefit of the doubt.
You've never seen a superhero story like the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, or the LXD. The first three episodes of this heroic-dance webseries are online now. But creator Jon M. Chu tells io9 it gets a lot deeper. Spoilers ahead...
Could a dance troupe launched by So You Think You Can Dance be the superhero webseries we've all been waiting for? Maybe — the Legion Of Extraordinary Dancers' trailer sure looks impressive.
