Like, literally. That’s a big fucking Kaiju.

Cowboy Ninja Viking, the long-awaited Chris Pratt comic book film about a covert agent with multiple personality disorder, has brought on Game of Thrones director Michelle MacLaren to helm the project. We’re glad to see a genuinely talented director chosen for a movie that’s had a lot of trouble getting off the ground.
The new Halloween movie is sidestepping everything in the franchise that’s happened since the first movie—and the multiple timelines that have wreaked havoc on Halloween continuity—which means it’s time to say hello... err, again to Jamie Lee Curtis’ horror icon Laurie Strode.
Universal Pictures and Skybound Entertainment just announced they’re teaming up to bring Image’s comic Birthright to the big screen.
Our latest look at the next chapter in Pacific Rim’s robot-vs-monster punchup is here, and it’s promising to bring us plenty of new action with the film’s next generation of Jaegers. But it also gives us some more intriguing hints as to just why the Kaiju have returned, stronger and deadlier than ever.
Universal Studio’s Dark Universe has suffered another major setback. Men in Black writer Ed Solomon has revealed he’s no longer writing Invisible Man, the monster flick set to star Johnny Depp. It’s unclear whether he was fired or quit, but what is clear is that Universal has a long way to go to fix the mess it’s…
“Want to see me do a dare?”
One of the minds behind Syfy’s brain-bending comics adaptation Happy! Is bringing another weird tale to television: Kurt Vonnegut’s iconic, time-twisting satire Slaughterhouse-Five.
Universal’s Dark Universe looks to be dead in the black lagoon, and The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro might know why.
So many absurd things have happened this year that it’s hard to remember that not only are we getting a live action Pokémon film, it’s actually based on a Japan-only game about a Pikachu that solves crimes. But yes, it’s still happening, and just took a major step forward by closing in on casting its female lead.
Universal’s plans for a shared universe of monster movies are all but dead after the creative team tapped to build out the franchise left the project. The news wasn’t exactly surprising when it first broke considering the reception to The Mummy, but it did beg the question: what might have happened if Guillermo del…
Universal Studios had high hopes for its 2017 reboot of the Mummy franchise, with planned to use the movie as a launchpad for a sprawling, shared universe of monster movies starring characters like the Bride of Frankenstein and the Wolf Man. According to a new report, though, those plans have been on hold.
Our first look at the Pacific Rim sequel is here, and a lot’s changed since the first movie. There’s new pilots and new robots (with crazy new weapons), but there’s a familiar threat: because the Kaiju are back to wage war with humanity once again.
The negative reaction to The Mummy as the kicking-off point for Universal’s Dark Universe movies is apparently causing a bit of a rethink about the future of the monster franchise at the studio. Part of that rethink? Getting Channing Tatum to play the next cinematic incarnation of fiction’s most famous monster hunter,…
Universal has just announced a slate of new genre TV shows, including three new adaptations of fantasy and scifi books. But hidden among those are the first details about Dan Harmon and Evan Katz’s next TV series: Sirens of Titan, an interplanetary epic based on the Kurt Vonnegut novel.
It may sound a bit funny, but Universal making a shared continuity out of its classic monsters isn’t a bad or even a new idea. Unfortunately, in its inaugural film The Mummy, the studio just managed to completely miss what made these characters work in the first place.
Sometimes people like to render metaphors literally, and in the case of The Mummy, the metaphor “take a licking” results in the Mummy (Sofia Boutella) laying her tongue on Nick Morton (Tom Cruise). Although, let’s be honest, Tom Cruise is always just playing Tom Cruise.
Universal is desperate to create a franchise out of the classic “monsters” that ruled the studio from the 1920s to 1960. It’s calling this thing “Dark Universe” and it’s all kicking off with that ridiculous Tom Cruise-starring Mummy. And now we get word about more monster movies being planned and they make no sense.
Universal has officially unveiled the “Dark Universe,” the name for its shared universe of monster movie reboots now kicking off with The Mummy next month. It’s also confirmed some major cast members and the next ghoulish entry in the franchise.
I was totally ready to let the upcoming reboot of The Mummy pass me by. The trailers seemed to offer yet another installment of “Tom Cruise Running From Things.” But this new look at the movie focuses on just why Princess Ahmanet wants to break stuff, and now I’m quite intrigued.
