    Akira: The long and tortured history of the live-action remake

    A live-action adaptation of the iconic manga comic (also filmed as a seminal 1988 anime) has been in Hollywood development hell for decades with many huge names including Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Evans, Keanu Reeves, and Christopher Nolan all linked with the project at various stages. 1982-1990 – Katsuhiro Otomo launches his original manga. Set in Neo-Tokyo, 2019 after the nuclear apocalypse, it tells the epic story of youngsters Kaneda, Tetsuo against the backdrop of gang violence, psychic kids and motorbike chases.

    Everything we learned from the new Wonder Woman trailer

    Ahead of this summer’s ‘Wonder Woman’ we’ve been given a glimpse at how Diana Prince (Gal Godot) became the fearless warrior, in the Origin trailer. Similarly, ‘Wonder Woman’ will (ideally) thinly tread the origin tale before focusing on her adulthood and time fighting alongside Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor in Europe. It is, however, where the film seemingly starts, as we witness Diana grow up through the use of either flashbacks or a contextual, chronological series time-hopping scenes.

    Wonder Woman set visit: 10 cool things we learned

    Yahoo Movies visited the set of ‘Wonder Woman’ back in early 2016 to speak to the cast and crew. The film was shooting in Leavesden Studios in Watford (home of The Making Of Harry Potter tour) with the back lot completely transformed into a WW1 trench for our visit. ‘Wonder Woman’ is a follow-up to ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ but is mostly set in 1918, and tells the origin story of the iconic female superhero.

    Logan lays waste to the world box office, with £200 million opening

    Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine has brought in the crowds, with ‘Logan’ delivering a sturdy $237.8 million (that’s just shy of £200 million) at the box office. Clearly the r-rated take on Jackman’s troubled hero has proved a draw, this latest iteration from director James Mangold being the most brooding and brutal yet. Presumed to be the final outing for Wolverine, it plays more like a late period John Wayne western than it does like a conventional superhero film’.

    Rejoice! Movie horror is getting back to its R-rated roots

    The latest two projects are freaky doll sequel ‘Annabelle 2’ and the remake of Stephen King’s coulrophobic waking nightmare ‘It’, eschewing the really rather lame PG-13 indictment that has dogged so many so-called horror movies in recent years. ‘It’, which is being made by Andrés Muschietti, who made the Spanish supernatural horror ‘Mama’, will land in September. The ‘Conjuring’ spin-off ‘Annabelle 2’, meanwhile, helmed by ‘Lights Out’ director David F. Sandberg, could also now be anticipated as a potentially worrisome affair – and after all ‘Lights Out’ was successfully terrifying.

    Can Dwayne 'Franchise Viagra' Johnson save the DC movies universe?

    Recent years have seen Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson go from being a wrestler-turned-actor managing a so-so leading man career, to becoming one of the most bankable stars in the business – and the go-to guy for any sequel in need of a boost. Will Johnson work that same ‘Franchise Viagra’ effect on the DC Extended Universe? It has been known for some time that Johnson will be joining the DC franchise as Black Adam, shady anti-hero of ‘Shazam!’ – a film provisionally lined up for a 2019 release, to which Johnson has been basically the only name attached for several years, with still no word of who will direct or co-star.

    Zoe Saldana slams Hollywood for bullying Donald Trump

    The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ star is never one to shy away from vocalising her opinion, but her latest words will no doubt rile many. Speaking of Donald Trump’s surprising rise to the White House, she claims that Hollywood should be blamed for ganging up on the reality TV host which led people to sympathise with him. While many can maybe agree that those hoping Hillary Clinton would win the election didn’t fight hard enough or get their points across effectively through the copious amounts of rumours and fake news generated by the opposition, it’s perhaps wrong to label liberal Americans as bullies.

    Tom Hanks helps out fan with a bet using a selfie

    Tom Hanks looks set to retain the title of ‘friendliest Hollywood star on the planet’ for 2016, after yet another delightful encounter with a fan. Zena Gopal from Toronto penned a short note to him, explaining that, as part of a bet, she was seeking a selfie from a celebrity, taken with a picture of herself. The quickest reply would be the winner. And lo, three weeks later, Ms Gopal was ‘totally floored’ when in the post arrived a shot of Hanks posing with her picture. ...

    Emma Watson and Tom Hanks star in ominous trailer for tech thriller The Circle

    Emma Watson and Tom Hanks share an chilling vision of the future in the ominous first trailer for ‘The Circle’, James Ponsoldt’s upcoming adaptation of Dave Eggers’ hugely popular novel. Watson stars as Mae Holland, a young woman who lands a job at The Circle – the world’s most powerful tech company – as it begins to impose its philosophy of openness on society. Hanks plays one of The Circle’s founders, Bailey, a charismatic presence and frontman who seems to be half-Mark Zuckerberg and half-Steve Jobs.

    Tom Cruise DIES in the first trailer for The Mummy

    Poor old London landmarks. They’ve only just recovered from ‘London Has Fallen’. The first full trailer for forthcoming monster movie reboot ‘The Mummy’ has arrived, and it manages to squeeze in an ancient sarcophagus, reanimation, a terrifying plane crash, Tom Cruise’s death AND resurrection, emergency parachuting, and full-scale metropolitan destruction, all in just under two-and-a-half minutes. Oh, and some Russell Crowe as Dr Henry Jekyll (yes, that one). ...

    First Logan trailer sets the scene for Wolverine's swan song

    20th Century Fox released the sombre first trailer for ‘Logan’, and it’s a doozy. Featuring Hugh Jackman as an aged Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier, ‘Logan’ is set to be the third and final solo outing for Wolverine, so it’s fitting that the first trailer has been scored with Johnny Cash’s cover of ‘Hurt’, one of the iconic musician’s last hits.
