Legendary Announces King Kong Prequel ‘Skull Island,’ Sets 2016 Release Date

San Diego Comic-Con International is taking place right now in California, and over the next day or so you will likely see a slew of headlines coming out of the studio-hosted panels that have long served as the main Saturday attraction. Our coverage has been pretty light thus far, but starting with this post we intend to change that. Strap in.

At the very end of the Legendary Pictures panel in Hall H this morning, studio head Thomas Tull returned to the stage to share one last piece of previously unreleased information. The surprise, which had not been teased anywhere, …


TRAILER: ‘The Conjuring’ Prequel Reveals Origins of ‘Annabelle’

In most circles, Annabelle has been referred to as a spin-off ever since it was announced shortly after The Conjuring became one of last summer’s massive box-office successes. Today, we’re given our first extended look at Annabelle, with a trailer that more or less confirms the film is actually a prequel to The Conjuring. I know. Semantics, right?

Annabelle, the origin story of the creepy doll from The Conjuring, will hit theaters on October 3. The Conjuring cinematographer John Leonetti, who also shot the Insidious movies (as well as Piranha 3D, Joe Dirt and The

‘The Conjuring’ Gets A Spinoff-Prequel About Annabelle (The Doll)

[minor spoilers ahead] One of my favorite aspects of The Conjuring was how director James Wan showed audiences the room where the Warrens kept all the items they believed to have been used or possessed by evil spirits without giving them too much back story on any particular object. There seemed to be hundreds of items in the room, meaning hundreds of potential avenues for spinoffs and additional stories featuring The Warrens. The highlight of this collection was no doubt Annabelle, the creepy doll you may remember from the trailers, and according to a new report from Schmoeville she will …


SyFy Has Officially Greenlit ‘Sharknado 2’

Okay, internet. Let’s all take a deep breath and calm down. You won.

Though the debut of Sharknado was not a ratings juggernaut, the wild social media response to SyFy’s latest has been so great the cable network has officially greenlit plans to make Sharknado 2 a reality.

According to reports, the latest installment of “sharks caught in a tornado” will take place in New York City, but it is unclear at this time whether the film will be a prequel or sequel to the original. A cheese-laden statement released from SyFy reads “Every once in a while, there …


LucasFilm Dates “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith” 3D Release, World Sighs

Well, this was expected but it doesn’t make me any less sad. LucasFilm announced a while ago that they would be rereleasing their Star Wars movies in 3D again to enhance the movie going experience (for those who aren’t as cynical or frankly ignorant, this means they just want to enhance their wallets). Sadly, Lucasfilm just gave dates to the last two prequels in the series, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, and they’ll come out September 20, 2013 and October 11, 2013, respectively.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the Star Wars series. A lot. …

COULD BE GOOD: “Jackie Brown” Prequel Confirmed

There are countless blog posts scattered across the internet hating on the fact that nearly every film that finds a sliver of success in the mainstream winds up with a shitastic sequel/prequel, but this one may be different.

Variety is reporting that a prequel to Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, entitled Switch, is scheduled to begin shooting in May. The film, which Tarantino does appear to be involved with, will follow the early journeys of Ordell (originally portrayed by Samuel Jackson) and Louis (originally portrayed by Robert DeNiro). No specific plot details have been revealed at the time of …

Prometheus Movie Poster


What a week for trailers! In the past several days, we’ve seen trailers for The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and now Ridley Scott’s ALIEN related project, Prometheus.

As a huge fan of the Alien series originally pioneered by Scott in 1979, the first whiff of an Alien prequel had me suppressing squeals of pure joy. Word circulated that not one, but two movies were planned to tell the tale of where the Xenomorphs came from. However, plans changed. From his original plans sprang a brand new story that would indirectly precede the story-lines of …


Get Ready, A “Pinocchio” Prequel Is On The Way

I don’t know how many people saw the box office report this weekend, but Real Steel is once again number one and Fox’s prequel/remake of The Thing failed miserably. You’d think studios would start to realize the hype of remakes, prequels, and sequels is starting to die down, but as you’ll soon learn that seems to be the exact opposite of what is happening in Hollywood these days.

Shawn Levy, AKA the guy who directed battling robots in Real Steel, has been tapped by Fox to direct a prequel to the animated classic Pinnochio. Written by Michael Vukadinovich …


The first official trailer for the upcoming prequel to The Thing, which is also entitled The Thing has arrived. Apparently claiming it’s a prequle (or reimagination or whatever line you choose) means you can use a familiar name, but change the central storyline. Regardless, check it out below and read along after for a more detailed description of this upcoming feature:

David Wain considering “Wet Hot American Summer” prequel/sequel

Can you believe it has been ten years since Wet Hot American Summer was released? The camp-y comedy from director and comedy mastermind David Wain premiered at Sundance 2001 and later opened domestically to almost no audience (grossing only $300,000 theatrically). However, thanks to DVD sales, film geeks throwing theme parties, and torrents helped by word of mouth, the little film that went nowhere upon release has actually become one of the most successful cult films of all time. So where do we go from here? To the land of sequels and prequels of course!

In a recent interview with …
