If you tuned out of the teaser for Bright after a few seconds, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was just another gritty police drama starring Will Smith. You have to keep watching to understand just how weird the movie really is.
Last week, the full script Max Landis originally wrote and pitched for the Power Rangers movie reboot in 2013 made its way online. With the new movie so close (it premieres March 24), we thought we’d take a look to see what might have been... and honestly? We’re pretty sure we’re going to like this version better.
After “categorically denying” that he was working on a remake of An American Werewolf in London back in August, it looks like Max Landis (son of the original film’s writer-director, John Landis) has revised his position. Deadline just reported that the film is officially a go, and the younger Landis will write it.
Correction: Max Landis, the subject of this story, responded to our request mere minutes after the article went online. He denied the claims. Original article follows with small tweaks.
Last year, we wrote about a new movie called Deeper, which would follow a disgraced astronaut who decides to go to the deepest depths of the ocean. That movie is now moving forward and Bradley Cooper is attached to play the lead.
We’ve known since last year that BBC America were working on bringing a new version of Douglas Adam’s holistic detective to U.S. shores—but now it’s official: BBC America have announced that they’ve greenlit Dirk Gently for an order of eight episodes.
Superman is having a rough time in comics lately. In an attempt to make the character feel more human, he’s lost some of his power, he’s been exposed to the world—but the excellent “Young Superman” anthology series American Alien shows Clark’s humanity in a real, earnest way by examining his formative years.
The goal of any astronaut is to go into space. The further out, the better. Mars is next, but Saturn, Jupiter, out of the Milky Way, that’s the stuff of dreams. Except in a Max Landis script. In a Max Landis script, the opposite happens. An astronaut is going into the Earth.
Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis has his own Superman comic now, and while it treads on familiar ground, it promises to be like no other: seven snapshots from Clark’s life as he learns to deal with his superpowers and learns to become a superhero. The first issue leans into the similarity a little too much, but it’s…
Which is kind of a shame, because he's not directing it. Despite an erroneous, quickly pulled article on NikkeFinke.com, Landis confirmed on Twitter that there was no truth to the rumors he was in the running to helm the long-in-the-containment-unit movie... and then blew our minds with the best Ghostbusters 3 story…
We knew Daniel Radcliffe was starring as Igor in the Max Landis-scripted Frankenstein reboot, starring James MacAvoy as Dr. Frankenstein, but we didn't know what he looked like. So here's what he looks like, thanks to some on-set photos.
Max Landis, the writer behind Chronicle, wants to pen a Wonder Woman movie for Warner Bros. Why not? We liked Chronicle and this world desperately needs a new Wonder Woman. Sure, okay.
We'll never get to see the sequel to the found-footage superpower movie Chronicle that writer Max Landis dreamed up. But now, Landis is saying that we might be just as happy that we didn't. And he's spilled some details about what would have happened.
This will be the sexiest Frankenstein movie in the history of the world! Sorry undead Aaron Eckhart abs.
A grand adventure needs an inspirational hero. Not just a cool person in a fancy suit, but someone to believe in. It's not quite true that a science fiction or fantasy story is only as good as its hero, but the hero's greatness is certainly a limiting factor. Here are 10 essential qualities a hero ought to have.
Chronicle was one of the sharpest movies about superpowers and teen angst we've seen in ages — so we're excited that its writer, Max Landis, is penning a new superhero show for Fox. In Vigilant, a young woman creates a fictional vigilante identity to take down corruption in the police department. (Shades of the most…
Remember when the Man of Steel died and came back in the 1990s? Well, this is the closest we're going to get to a live-action Death of Superman movie. And it's kind of amazing.
Doctor Strange takes a huge step forward, while Iron Man 3 might start filming early. A photo reveals the back of a Batman villain's head. Terminator 5 will return to the franchise's R-rated roots. Plus the last word on Chuck!
Don't get us wrong — when done well, the shaky-cam can be a thrill and a half. But we're not 100% sure how the superhero will fare against an all-shaky-cam movie, Chronicle. It's written by famed director John Landis' son.
