  • BATGIRL GETS A MOVIE: Joss Whedon has crossed the divide from Marvel, to DC. He is reportedly finalizing a deal to write, direct and produce a Batgirl movie.
  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREVIEW: Ghost in the Shell has had a lot of controversy surrounding it, but will it turn into a good movie? Also....The Boss Baby.
  • BEST STEPHEN KING MOVIE EVER?: We try to tackle this daunting question, which is really difficult to answer. The new trailer for IT is really promising, with an 80s spin, as opposed to the original mini-series.
  • DARK TOWER: Another delay has been announced for the release date of this Idris Elba starring, movie. Is it a bad sign, or is it just that it's a complicated film to pull off?
  • STAR TREK DISCOVERY CASTING NEWS: Rainn Wilson will be bringing a character from the TOS back to life. Harry Mudd was a con artist and he might be just the right guy to play him in the new series.
  • WAR OF THE PLANET OF THE APES: The new trailer looks great and reveals some more of the plot of the newest movie in the series. The question is, does it reveal too much?
  • SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING: We finally get our first look at the new movie and we learn a lot about it's main villain, Vulture. 
  • VENOM START OF R-RATED MCU?: Sony is really going after the side characters from the Spider-Man universe. Turning Venom into a horror movie franchise may be the best way to differentiate itself from the rest of the MCU.
  • VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS: The latest trailer gives a great look at the city itself, Alpha. The verdict: lots and lots of aliens.
  • HBO UPDATES: Game of Thrones shows off the main characters and we make a prediction on who will win; True Detective may yet get another season; Curb finishes shooting and Silicon Valley returns soon.
  • BILLY EICHNER'S YEAR: American Horror Story is bringing Billy Eichner to the newest season in a 6-7 episode role. This is enough for us to give AHS another shot.
  • OSCAR PRODUCERS PLAN NOT TO RUIN OSCARS: We all witnessed the incredibly awkward ending to this year's Oscars and now producers have put forth a multi-part plan to avoid a fiasco next time.
  • IRON-FIST: It's been bagged on as the worst thing ever, but Greg would like to give it a different spin, which could make viewing it a lot more enjoyable.

  • HAN SOLO IS NOT ACTUALLY HAN SOLO: Sources are claiming that the Han Solo movie will reveal that he actually had another name first. What do you think it was? Greg is voting for Randy Solo.
  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREVIEW: CHiPs is getting less than stellar reviews, Life is a new spin on a space horror movie, Power Rangers gets a reboot and Wilson stars Woody Harrelson as a terrible person.
  • MATRIX UPDATE: After last week, we've received an update for this ongoing story. There will not be a Matrix reboot, but instead a prequel. Does this change your opinion on the possible movies?
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE: A series of trailer teasers were released for each member of the Justice League, in anticipation of a new trailer debuting on 3//25.
  • ROTTEN TOMATOES RUINING FILMS?: That's the opinion of Brett Ratner, in a rant about the effects the aggregate review site has on movies.
  • GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: Chris Pratt posted his review of the upcoming movie, while also releasing the IMAX poster for GOTG 2.
  • DEADPOOL FINALLY HAS A CABLE?: There has been a revolving door of actors supposedly set to play Deadpool's friend. The latest involves Michael Shannon, which could be the best one yet.
  • BLACK CAT AND SILVER SABLE MOVIE: After news that a Venom movie was in the works, Sony is now going to the well of other side characters from Spider-Man, with a possible Black Cat and Silver Sable movie.
  • DEATH NOTE: The long running Japanese Manga series is getting a live-action version coming to Netflix. Are you familiar with the original comic and are you excited about this release?
  • FARGO SEASON 3: The newest standalone season of Fargo will star Ewan McGregor playing twins. It looks fantastic!
  • MEGAN LEAVEY: Based on the true story of a marine in Iraq and her K9 Unit, this story is destined to be a tear-jerker.
  • THE LOWE FILES: Rob Lowe is creating a 9 episode reality series that stars him and his sons, investigating various mysteries.
  • BETWEEN THE CRACKS: THE GRINDER: Continuing with the Rob Lowe theme, this is a series that is worth revisiting. Starring Lowe and Fred Savage, you can watch it on Hulu.

  • BEAUTY AND THE BEAST: Reviews are mostly mixed on the live-action Disney remake, but the box office says it's a gigantic success.
  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREVIEW: Trainspotting 2 is another remake that, while it seems a bit unnecessary as a concept, is getting decent reviews. Horror/thrillers round out the rest of the weekend premiers with The Belko Experiment ad The Devil's Candy.
  • GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 3: James Gunn confirmed there will be a third movie for the superhero team. More importantly though, we've learned more about GOTG's roll in the Avengers movies.
  • WONDER WOMAN ORIGIN: A new trailer is out this week, showcasing that the upcoming movie is definitely going to be an origin story.
  • REBOOT ROUNDUP: The Matrix may be relaunching with Michael B Jordan starring and The Fly is getting another turn on the screen. Are either of these necessary?
  • AQUAMAN DELAYED, BUT VENOM ON THE WAY: Spider-Man's frequent nemesis, Venom, will be getting his own movie and possibly franchise. What does this mean and how will they portray the alien symbiote?
  • AMERICAN GODS: Fans of Neil Gaiman will definitely be excited, but there looks to be enough here for everyone else as well. The battle between the Old Gods and the New Gods will play out on Starz.
  • NETFLIX RATING SYSTEM: You'll be seeing changes to your Netflix account soon, as they drop the longstanding system of rating movies on a star scale.
  • SNL IS KILLING IT: Banking on the highest ratings in years, SNL will go live nationwide for the first time ever in April. Weekend Update will also be getting it's own series.
  • IRON-FIST: Iron-Fist isn't receiving the greatest reviews, but does that mean it's bad, or just doesn't measure up to stiff competition?
  • MASTER OF NONE SEASON 2: Aziz Ansari confirmed on Twitter this week, that Season 2 of his hit series is on the way.

Kong: Skull Island; Raw; My Scientology Movie; Thor: Ragnarok; Star Trek: Discovery; Deadpool 2; Late Shift; Jurassic World 2; Geostorm; Looney Tunes; The Little Mermaid

  • KONG: SKULL ISLAND: Monster movies are back, leading to a discussion of our favorite ones of all time. The original monster, King Kong, looks to have a pretty good reboot movie out this weekend, with strong reviews coming in.
  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREVIEW: In addition to Kong, a strange movie called Raw comes out this weekend. It appears to be some kind of cannibal type of film? Also, yet another Scientology movie is out, called "My Scientology Movie".
  • THOR: RAGNAROK IMAGES: Taiki Waititi's upcoming movie in the Thor franchise, finally released some set photos and they did not disappoint. From a short-haired Thor, to the Goddess of Death, to Jeff Goldblum, this may be the best one yet.
  • STAR TREK: DISCOVERY GETS A CAPTAIN: The oft pushed back series will focus on a Lieutenant, played by Sonequa Martin-Green. However, there will be a captain named Lorca, played by Jason Isaacs.
  • DEADPOOL 2: The teaser that played before Logan shows us what a polar opposite R-Rated superhero movie that Deadpool is. Could this also be the jumping off point for an X-Force film?
  • LATE SHIFT: Late Shift is an upcoming interactive film game, being released on PS4, XBox and Steam. The viewer will be presented with 180 decisions and 7 different endings to choose from.
  • JURASSIC WORLD 2: Our first image has emerged to give us a look at Jurassic World 2. It doesn't tell us a lot, but will the premise be that the knowledge of how to clone dinosaurs goes open-source?
  • GEOSTORM: Fans of natural disaster movies will get a little bit of everything in this movie, set in the distant future where technology controls the weather.
  • LOONEY TUNES STREAMING SERVICE: Boomerang is on pace to become an animated warehouse, grabbing the rights to stream 1000 episodes of cartoons, including Looney Tunes.
  • LITTLE MERMAID: The upcoming live action movie is not made by Disney, instead focusing on the original fairy tale. The trailer proves to be brilliantly bad.
