MOVIE NEWS

SUPERMAN LIVES/REBORN

This movie has been in the making for several years! It's current release date is Thanksgiving 1999, but a summer release that same year has also been discussed. The story will somewhat follow the 1993 comic series on the death and return of Superman. I won't tell you the plot, I'll let you read it yourself. Search under lycos for Superman Lives script, and voila! You'll get it. Sorry, with the limits of this page creator, I can't include a hyperlink right here.

SO FAR (these are of course subject to change)

Nicholas Cage = Superman

Linda Fiorentino = Lois Lane

Kevin Spacey = Lex Luthor

Patrick Stewart = Braniac

Jack Nicholson = "K" (a possible alternate name for the eradicator)

Michael Keaton = cameo as Batman (at the funeral (not in script).

UPDATE: 4/14 - Superman's suit is confirmed to be the classic suit, so said Nicholas Cage after he was convinced by his 7 year old son to go with the red underpants. YAY NICK!

GREEN LANTERN

This project has basically just started. Kevin Smith (writer of above, Chasing Amy, View Askew, and others) has been hired for the script, as DC and Warner have both expressed interest in the franchise. That's all the info for now.

THE X-FILES

The movie is done. It's called The X-Files: Fight the Future. David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Skinner, and all the rest of that zany crew appear, as well as a cameo from Martin Landau, as a government hush-hush agent. The story focuses on a virus being planted by the government is sinc with the aliens. Mulder and Scully fall in love as well.

LOST IN SPACE

I just saw a kick-ass preview for this movie. The SFX look great. I also heard it is a dark sci-fi version of the underfunded nostalgic hit, and got early rave reviews. By the way, old timers. The robot does say "danger will robinson! Danger!"

UPDATE 4/14 - saw the movie. It sucks. It was fun to watch and all, but it was badly written, and badly directed. Good effects, though. Give it a "C".

DEEP IMPACT/ARMAGEDDON

The two asteroid movies of the spring/summer. I read a review of both, and Dreamwork's Deep Impact seems to be taking the critical lead. Morgan Freeman stars in DI whilst Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck star in Armageddon.

UPDATE 4/14 - saw the trailer. It's up for download at http://www.deep-impact.com. It kicks butt!!!!! Can't wait for the movie

THE TRUMAN SHOW/ED TV

Two movies about people's lives being filmed. Jim Carrey stars in TTS, while Ellen DeGeneres stars in Ed TV. No other news as of yet.

SPECIES II

Natasha Henstridge returns to combat an astronaut infected with alien DNA. The release is this summer. Expect a higher budget, yet cheezy one-liners. Their tag line is "mating season is on: AGAIN!"

UPDATE - 4/14 Reviews of the movie say beware of bad dialogue.

BARNEY: THE MOVIE

The only thing I know is that teenagers everywhere will flee this summer, as Barney hits the big screen. I'm up for Barney eating those obnoxious little twerps by the sequel (friendly carnivore my ass!)

UPDATE - 4/14 IT'S IN THEATRES! BEWARE!!

BATMAN V

Joel Schumacher (director III and IV) has been officially canned. So has Chris O'Donnel for that matter (he said he wouldn't work without him, so WB made due). Bats will be getting a dark makeover this time, reverted back to his proper state in which he had a good medium in I. The Scarecrow and the Joker (yes, I know he's supposed to be dead, but they're starting a new series) will appear, with Nicholson saying at a "As Good as it Gets" premier that "The Joker will return." So far, John Travolta is slated for the scarecrow, and Clooney will return as the bats, with Keaton making an bats appearance in Superman V (Clooney wouldn't do it.) Sheesh.

UPDATE 4/14 - It is possible that they will start over, yet unlikely. Clooney might get fired and Kurt Russel replace him???!!! Someone on the net saw a poster. I'll keep you posted.

THE LORD OF THE RINGS/THE HOBBIT

There has been some interest sparked in making a live action version. Prequels were discussed instead of the original trilogy. Sound familiar? Speaking of which...

STAR WARS: I HAD TO GET TO THEM EVENTUALLY!

The first prequel is just about done. Production on the 2nd will began by November, with Natlalie Portman off the set, and James Earl Jones appearing. The first prequel will open May 2nd, 1999. Preceding Superman Lives, so hopefully it won't get beaten too bad.

UPDATE: 4/14 - The next two will happen, no matter what and Matt Damon will supposedly play a supporting role in II. Alec Guiness will narate the 3rd one.

INDIANA JONES IV

Rumor has it that George Lucas will start a new Indiana Jones film after he his finished the prequels to the Star Wars triliogy. The film will focus on Indiana Jones, his evil brother, and his father. Indy will also have a family, and will be more aged, to account for Harrison Ford's current age. Tom Selleck has been approached to play Indy's father.

THE CROW III

The new film is now in production. It is called The Crow:2042. Unfortuneatley, I don't have any other news on this subject.

UPDATE: 4/14 - A boy is murdered in the year 2012, comes back to life, and thirty years later reeks vengeace. Very nice, no?

PRINCE OF EGYPT

This Ten Commandments animation film will be done by Dreamworks in their first animated film. The animation is incredible. For full color pictures of this masterpiece, contact Ain't It Cool News.

MAJOR LEAGUE III

Charlie Sheen will return in an May release of Major League: Back to the minors. I don't know about the rest of you, but I think the 2nd one especially sucked.

UPDATE: 4/14 - Turns out Sheen will not come back. The movie got really bad reviews, so watch out for this stinker.

A BUGS LIFE

Another full length computer animated film. I don't know the plot, but it features the makers of Toy Story.

STAR TREK 9

Nicknamed "Stardust." This film includes all our favorites, and will feature a Star Trek Vish beginning, with Picard on vacation, and later attacked by a race called the Son'a.

UPDATE: 4/14 - THe film has been retitled Prime Directive.
