For the most part, the Mortal Kombat reboot has assembled exactly the sort of roster you’d expect from an action-driven martial arts fantasy, with the ensemble filled out by a number of actors boasting extensive experience in dealing with intricate fight choreography. Leading man Lewis Tan is a former stuntman that’s spent years training in multiple disciplines, Raiden’s Tadanobu Asano is a veteran of effects-heavy blockbusters having appeared in the likes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Thor franchise, Battleship and Midway, Liu Kang star Ludi Lin used to be a Power Ranger, while Shang Tsung actor Chin Han has shown up in The Dark Knight, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Skyscraper and Independence Day: Resurgence. Continuing the trend, The Raid‘s Joe Taslim is a lifelong judo practitioner that’s ideal for Sub-Zero, Jax’s Mehcad Brooks is no stranger to action after spending years on Supergirl, and Hiroyuki Sanada has long since established himself as Hollywood’s go-to guy when it comes to finding a grizzled Japanese badass, making him the ideal fit for Scorpion.

Godzilla Vs Kong

As part of the groundbreaking new release strategy Warner Bros. Pictures is trying out this year, Godzilla vs. Kong is coming to theaters and HBO Max in March. The epic battle between two of cinema’s most famous monsters is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, and a new teaser has delivered new footage of the epic battle between the jungle king and the gigantic lizard. Godzilla vs. Kong Teaser Freestar Godzilla has turned on humanity for some reason, and King Kong may be the only hope we have to stop him. Though this teaser doesn’t dig into the details of the story, it does feature plenty of monster-smashing spectacle. There are new shots of Godzilla and Kong’s first confrontation in the middle of the ocean, as well as their battle among a neon cityscape, which will surely have taken plenty of damage by the time the battle is done. On the human side, we get another glimpse at young Kaylee Hottle as Jia, a girl who shares a connection with Kong. In this teaser, we see her pleading with Kong in sign language for him to be careful. Additional footage also shows that one of the battles with Godzilla doesn’t go very well for Kong, so her concern is fully warranted. Godzilla vs. Kong also stars Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3), Shun Oguri (Gintama), Eiza González (Baby Driver), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street), and Demian Bichir (The Nun). The sequel is directed by Adam Wingard (You’re Next, Blair Witch) with a script from Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein. Legends collide in Godzilla vs. Kong as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth. Freestar Godzilla vs. Kong arrives in theaters and on HBO Max (for 31 days) starting on March 26, 2021.


 Constantine 2

A follow-up to the 2005 movie starring Keanu Reeves, is in the works according to Peter Stormare, who played Lucifer in the original film. Stormare, who has also appeared in Fargo, Armageddon, American Gods, John Wick: Chapter 2, and a number of video games including Destiny and Destiny 2, was a standout in the DC comics adaptation. Despite being panned by critics and comic book fans alike upon release, Constantine has been re-evaluated in recent years, especially since Reeves has experienced a major career resurgence due to the John Wick franchise. Rumors of a sequel to the Reeves version have swirled for years, but they seemed to be squashed when it was announced J.J. Abrams was producing a reboot at Warner Bros. Despite this, Reeves and director Francis Lawrence, who went on to helm a number of the Hunger Games movies, hinted that if a sequel were ever to be greenlit, they'd both be keen to return to make it, with producer Akiva Goldsman adding that he'd make a sequel tomorrow at this year's Comic-con@Home. Now, Stormare has seemingly confirmed Constantine 2 is in fact happening. He has posted an image of himself as Lucifer in Constantine on Instagram with the accompanying caption "Sequel In The Works." Stormare is the first person directly involved to confirm plans for a sequel, and hopefully, his post is correct, though it would be strange if the actor was posting without having at least been contacted to reprise his role. You can see the Instagram post announcing the news below:

If Stormare is in fact correct about the sequel, the news is huge for fans of the original. Constantine has long been seen as ripe for a sequel, and with Reeves returning to his action-sci-fi roots with the John Wick franchise, as well as reprising the role of Neo in The Matrix 4, now is the perfect time to put a sequel into production. There have been hints in recent months that DC and WB might be considering making Constantine 2, with a video released at DC FanDome seeming to confirm the original movie is part of the DC movie multiverse alongside other properties like Watchmen. Hopefully, whenever Constantine 2 is made, the director and star are allowed to make it a hard R. The first film was given an R-rating despite the director and producers working hard to make it PG-13, a decision that Lawrence said screwed its chances of doing well at the box office. But, as seen with Logan, Deadpool and Deadpool 2, the appetite for more adult-themed superhero movies is greater these days, and a bloody, violent R-rated Constantine 2 would be perfect for the source material. Hopefully, more official news about the sequel is released soon, including confirmation of Reeves' casting.

SPIRAL

In the famous words of Jigsaw: “Want to play a game?” Lionsgate is bringing the “Saw” horror movie franchise back to the big screen this year in a surprising new way thanks to “Spiral,” which the studio is billing as coming from “the book of ‘Saw.'” The new film is from executive producer Chris Rock, who also came up with the story for the project. Rock stars as a police detective investigating a string of sadistic murders targeting cops. The supporting cast includes Samuel L. Jackson and Max Minghella. Lionsgate’s official synopsis for “Spiral” reads: “A sadistic mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in ‘Spiral,’ the terrifying new chapter from the book of ‘Saw.’ Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran (Jackson), brash detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Rock) and his rookie partner (Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.” RELATED Anya Taylor-Joy, Robert De Niro, Chris Rock, Mike Myers, and More Join David O. Russell's New Film Chris Rock Sounds Off on Hating Civil Rights Movies: 'They Make Racism Look Very Fixable' The jury is still out on whether or not the horror franchise’s iconic serial killer Jigsaw (previously played by Tobin Bell) will return, but the first trailer for the movie guarantees there will be no shortage of wicked killing devices and sharp blades to cut off limbs. Isn’t that what everyone wants in a “Saw” movie? “Spiral” is directed by franchise veteran Darren Lynn Bousman, who wrote and directed 2005’s “Saw II” and directed sequels “Saw III” and “Saw IV.” The script was penned by “Jigsaw” writer Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger. “Spiral” marks the ninth installment in the long-running “Saw’ franchise, which got its start in 2004 with the original film directed by James Wan. There was a new installment of “Saw” every year between 2004 and 2010, before the franchise took a seven-year hiatus and returned in 2017 with “Jigsaw.” The franchise has proved lucrative at the box office for Lionsgate. Seven of the eight released “Saw” films have grossed over $100 million worldwide. “Saw II” remains the top domestic grosser with $87 million. Lionsgate will open “Spiral” in theaters nationwide May 15. Watch the first official trailer for the horror movie below.


Halloween Kills

2020 was a wild one, and the entertainment industry came to a screeching halt when sets and theaters around the world were shut down. One of the many movies which were pushed back a full year was David Gordon Green's Halloween Kills. The slasher sequel was meant to be released this past October, before Blumhouse pulled it in hopes of making a box office haul in 2021. The legendary John Carpenter recently spoke about the movie's quality, and definitely made it sound like it's worth the wait. John Carpenter changed the film world with his 1978 original Halloween movie, starting a slasher property that has never been far from theaters. He's given his blessing to the current trilogy, even writing the music for David Gordon Green's 2018 installment. Halloween Kills was completed ahead of its original release date, and Carpenter's description of the movie will make fans very happy. As he put it, It's brilliant. It's the ultimate slasher. I mean, there's nothing more than this one. Wow! Man. Talk about high praise. It sounds like David Gordon Green and Danny McBride really outdid themselves with Halloween Kills. Everything we've heard from the set has teased a much bigger scope, as well as a massive bodycount. And now if John Carpenter is to be believed, the delayed project is the "ultimate slasher." Is it October yet? John Carpenter's comments to EW are definitely exciting, although it makes the extra year of waiting for Halloween Kills all the more painful. While not much is known about the movie's contents, the second installment in the current trilogy is seemingly gearing up to be a horror version of The Avengers. Various characters from Carpenter's original movie will return, as Haddonfield arms up to take on The Shape themselves. Perhaps it's this formation of characters that makes Halloween Kills feel like the ultimate slasher to John Carpenter. Joining Jamie Lee Curtis are original Halloween actors Kyle Richards, Nancy Stephens, and Charles Cyphers who are all reprising their roles forty years later. Additionally we'll meet adult versions of the characters Tommy Doyle and Lonnie Elam, played by Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Longstreet respectively. While we haven't been treated to a full trailer, some limited footage from Halloween Kills has been released to help satiate the fandom. In it we see the mob violence of Haddonfield, as every character is armed to the teeth now that Michael Myers is back. Check it out below. 2018's Halloween focused largely on Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode, and the trauma she experienced in the decades since surviving her fateful encounter with The Shape. We saw how this affected her family, although her obsession ultimately paid off when Michael managed to escape his transport from Smith's Grove. But he seemingly survived Laurie's basement trap, and will be back for blood in Halloween Kills. As we get closer to Halloween Kills' release this coming fall, fans are no doubt going to become more vocal about wanting to see a full trailer. And while there are some moviegoers who might be worried about the sequel getting delayed again, Jason Blum has expressed his commitment to putting out the sequel this October no matter what. Halloween Kills is currently set to arrive in theaters on October 15th. In the meantime, check out our 2021 release list to plan your next movie experience.


   Young Guns 3

‘Young Guns 3’ is saddling up with original stars Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland and others. That’s according to John Fusco, who wrote the first 2 instalments. ADVERTISING Fusco tweeted the news on Jan 15th. For those having trouble picturing what a 21st century Young Guns would look like, he’s posted a Spaghetti Western style concept poster with the title ‘Guns III – Alias: Billy The Kid’. The word ‘Young’ is obscured by bullet holes, showing a lot of water has passed under the bridge since audiences last met these characters. Accompanied by the tagline “Some legends never die”, the image heralds in Fusco’s words “the continuation of the Billy the Kid saga”. He adds, “and you’re going to love where it goes”. As for where that is, commentators are naturally assuming the action will pick up during (real name) Henry McCarty’s later years. 1988: From left to right, actors Casey Siemaszko , Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Emilio Estevez, Lou Diamond Phillips and Dermot Mulroney star in the film ‘Young Guns’.

(Photo by Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images) Not that McCarty had any later years. In real life he died, shot down in 1881 aged just 21. Principal players Estevez, Sutherland (“Doc” Scurlock) and Lou Diamond Phillips (José Coby Frey Chavez y Chavez) are into their fifties. However the movies indicated the Western legend was very much alive, chiming with a long-held belief that he faked his demise. Website JoBlo notes Fusco name checks some actors, “even stars whose characters died in the first two”. Alongside those previously mentioned are Christian Slater, who appeared in Part 2 as “Arkansas” Rudabaugh. There are new faces in the frame also. Fusco tags Guardian of the Galaxy Chris Pratt, plus character actor Vincent D’Onofrio, himself no stranger to franchises via ‘Men In Black’ and ‘Jurassic World’ (where he performed with Pratt). JoBlo highlights the pair’s involvement in the 2016 ‘Magnificent Seven’ remake, speculating a crossover could be on the blood-spattered cards. Lou Diamond Phillips has acknowledged the news on his Twitter account. Movieweb writes this is “seemingly confirming his involvement”. 1988: Actors Kiefer Sutherland and Emilio Estevez star in the film ‘Young Guns’. (Photo by Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images) 1988: Actors Kiefer Sutherland and Emilio Estevez star in the film ‘Young Guns’. (Photo by Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images) Fusco takes a trip down memory lane with 2 additional images posted on Twitter. One from the making of ‘Young Guns II’ and another with Estevez standing in front of what looks like the Kid’s grave. Easily dismissed by some as The Brat Pack Meets The Wild West, ‘Young Guns’ (1988) was a serious attempt to tell the story of Billy The Kid. The movie follows the burgeoning gunslinger as he fought during the Lincoln County War. The film proved a hit, making over $45 million. ‘Young Guns II’ arrived in 1990. Future stars Viggo Mortensen and Bradley Whitford were among the supporting cast. In the sequel, Estevez played the roles of both Billy and Brushy Bill Roberts. Roberts was a true life figure who told people he was the Kid in 1950. The plot featured Billy and gang The Regulators. Musician Warren G is also included in Fusco’s tweet – he referred to ‘Young Guns’ in 1994 track ‘Regulate’ with Nate Dogg. The outlaw’s legacy clearly struck a chord… his Twitter handle is @regulator. Will he be contributing to the soundtrack? Jon Bon Jovi cameoed in ‘Young Guns II’ and wrote the hit song ‘Blaze of Glory’. Estevez reportedly wanted Bon Jovi’s ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’ but instead got a whole new track for the movie. The posse have since gone their separate ways and onto other things. Estevez is a noted director as well as actor. Sutherland continues making movies and achieved major small screen fame as Jack Bauer in ‘24’. Diamond Phillips is currently starring in hit TV drama ‘Prodigal Son’ and released a sci-fi novel last year to some acclaim. As well as writing ‘Young Guns’, John Fusco provided screenplays for adventure film ‘Hidalgo’ (with Mortensen) and Netflix’s ‘The Highwaymen’ with Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson.
