The Poster for Darren Aronofsky’s ‘mother!’ Will Remind You of Another Classic Horror Movie
Darren Aronofsky’s mother! is intriguing just for the very fact that we know next to nothing about it, besides who’s starring and a few quick glimpses of some trailer action. But the new poster for the movie (the latest in a slew of one-sheets, each more fascinating than the last) is our biggest clue yet as to what this movie will be about, and what other classic horror movie it was influenced by.
Classic ’80s Teen Adventure Film ‘License to Drive’ Gets a Female-Driven Reboot
Either a classic late 20th century teen film dies a classic late 20th century teen film, or it lives long enough to see itself become a female-led reboot. The reason I’m making this labored metaphor is because that’s exactly what’s happening to License to Drive, a fun teen adventure flick from 1988 that’s about to be rebooted with a pair of female leads.
‘Avatar’ Sequels Begin VFX Production, With an Assist From ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’
The next of James Cameron’s Avatar sequels are officially off and rolling, with visual effects production in full swing today at the Oscar-winning Weta Digital in New Zealand. Cameron changed the game for movies that heavily feature visual effects and performance capture, paving the way for films like Luc Besson’s Valerian and the new Planet of the Apes trilogy. Funny enough, Weta is getting an assist this time around from motion capture tech used in War for the Planet of the Apes.
The ‘It’ Movie’s Runtime Is Way Longer Than ‘The Dark Tower’
Something fishy is going on with the two Stephen King movies coming out this year. At least, their runtimes aren’t exactly what you’d expect. It was recently revealed that The Dark Tower clocks in at a lean 95 minutes long, and now we’re hearing that Andres Muschietti’s It is considerably longer than two hours: approximately 135 minutes.
It’s Man Against Nature and Flaming Bears in the ‘Only the Brave’ Trailer
When it comes to natural disaster movies, the bigger, the better. San Andreas was delightful in its boorish stupidity, The Perfect Storm is a stone-cold classic, and don’t even get me started on how excited I am for Geostorm. Man against nature is the oldest plot in history, which is why it’s about darn time we saw Josh Brolin play a firefighter.
Warner Bros. Is Making Another ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ Reboot
Invasion of the Body Snatchers is an undeniable sci-fi classic, the O.G. one-of-us-in-this-room-isn’t-human narrative, which is probably why it’s been remade so many, many times. The original 1954 novel The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney inspired the 1956 Don Siegel film, which was then remade in 1978, in 1993, and agin in 2007 with Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman (The Invasion). So it should come as no surprise that Warner Bros. is making plans to reboot the story for the modern era.

The New ‘Jigsaw’ Photo Drowns Someone in a Vat of… Rice? Corn? Organic Grains?
You know that person you were friends with on college who went vegan for like a month and wouldn’t shut up about it, so you started wishing they would just up and drown in their acai bowl? Well, with the upcoming Jigsaw, you might actually get your wish — at least, if the first image from the film is any indication.
