[UPDATED: Check Out New Images of Jinx, Lady Jaye and Roadblock!]
There’s no doubt that G.I. Joe‘s resident ninja Snake Eyes is badass. In fact, Snake Eyes was (in this writer’s opinion) one of the only saving graces of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and somehow director Stephen Sommers managed to even mess that up, by giving Snake Eyes a mask with a plastic mouth on the front of it…for some reason.
It’s true that Snake Eyes got the short end of the stick in the first film – but it’s just as true that Jon M. Chu, director of the upcoming sequel film G.I. Joe: Retaliation has learned from the mistakes of predecessor on several fashion fronts. We’ve already seen Chu’s much improved version of Cobra Commander – and today we’re getting a closer look at the improved Snake Eyes.
Check out the image of the ...

This is news that is sure to elicit more sarcasm than hope. Paranormal Activity 4 has secured a writer in the form of Zack Estrin, who is currently a writer/executive producer on ABC’s found-footage supernatural series, The River; a show that is not-so-coincidentally co-executive produced by Paranormal Activity producer Jason Blum and franchise creator Oren Peli.
Hearing the words The River and Paranormal Activity in the same sentence may make a lot moviegoers cringe. The River is an underperformer (hovering in the 4 – 5 million viewers a week range), and although the Paranormal Activity movies are popular (Paranormal Activity 3 has snagged $205 million worldwide on a $5 million budget) there is an increasing crowd that is very vocal about their disdain for the franchise.
On the other hand, given the vague and ...

After an extensive search, The Carrie Diaries found its leading lady last month, and now the Sex and the City prequel rounds out its cast with the characters that helped turned the small town country girl into the Prada princess.
Former Doctor Who companion Freema Agyeman is trading in her TARDIS keys for ones to the penthouse, by landing a supporting role on The CW’s pilot, The Carrie Diaries. Agyeman will portray young Carrie Bradshaw’s (AnnaSophia Robb) mentor Larissa, who is described as a cool cutting-edge editor for Interview Magazine – an editor who is also not stranger to partying hard. Larissa will help the newly-planted Carrie navigate through ‘80s Manhattan, while helping the budding writer hone her craft.
Should the pilot get a full series commission (which seems probable), the recent casting of Agyeman will ...

Disney’s John Carter may not have had a(n) (inter)stellar opening weekend, but there aren’t people (apparently many of them) who not only enjoyed seeing Carter’s journey to Barsoom (Mars) – they want Disney to make a return trip to the red planet.
You may (or not) remember a few weeks back when we posted an impressive John Carter fan-made trailer that circled the Net; that trailer came from a user named “Dotar Sojat,” who runs a site called The John Carter Files. Sojat pointed us to a grass-roots campaign where JC fans are gathering to collectively pledge their desire for a sequel film. As a bonus, Sojat has also cut a brand new fan trailer for the film.
Despite the pointed criticisms of some, we here at Screen Rant found John ...

It’s been a year since Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio committed to working together a fifth time on a big screen treatment of former Wall Street tycoon/ex-convict Jordan Belfort’s memoir, The Wolf of Wall Street. Since then, Scorsese has been tapped to helm a remake of The Gambler (with DiCaprio) and an adaptation of the serial killer novel The Snowman – to say nothing of long-gestating Scorsese projects like Silence and The Irishman.
Now that Red Granite Pictures has come aboard to fund Wolf of Wall Street, Scorsese is ready to make that flick his followup to the multiple Oscar-winning Hugo – not to mention, the legendary filmmaker’s fifth collaboration with DiCaprio, following Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, and Shutter Island.
Deadline is reporting that Red Granite – which just ...
