In the futuristic world of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, firemen don't put out fires, they start them.

Jordan (Creed, Chronicle), Sofia Boutella (2017's The Mummy), and Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals, Bug).

Bright Review

With Bright, director David Ayer and writer Max Landis paint a grim picture. Orcs are a disgraced race carrying stigmas and shame wherever they walk. Fairies, the most delicate denizens of any fantasy world, are smacked out of the air like flies and left to die in the dirt in rundown neighborhoods. Elves sit at the tip-top of the social hierarchy, and magic-wielding beings known as “Brights” are lost to legend. It’s all compelling and exciting to think about—until the story kicks itself into gear and Landis’s script devolves into a chaotic action-adventure devoid of emotion and excitement.

Landis’s patchwork of half-realized characters and haphazard concepts pushes the film closer to American Ultra and farther from more inspired efforts such as Chronicle, which is disappointing considering how much potential Bright boasts. Touted as Netflix’s first blockbuster, the film feels like a script that was three

Bright review

Tolkien meets La cop thriller in Netflix’s Bright. Blockbuster or Christmas turkey? Here’s our review...

Back in the 1980s, when the buddy-cop thriller was all the rage, Alien Nation took the genre’s staples and threw a bit of sci-fi into the mix. In a future Los Angeles where extraterrestrials live among humans, an Earth-born cop (James Caan) is reluctantly partnered with an alien law enforcer (Mandy Potenkin); as they solve a case involving murder and narcotics, their antipathy eventually gives way to friendship and respect. It was familiar stuff, even back then, but the sci-fi angle gave it a certain freshness, not to mention a neat (if less than subtle) allegory for racial intolerance and hatred.

Netflix Has Already Ordered a Sequel To David Ayer's Bright and Will Smith Has Signed on To Return

Director David Ayer's Bright is one of Netflix's biggest original film productions to date. it hasn't even been released yet, but according to Bloomberg, the streaming service has already ordered a sequel! They also say that Will Smith has already signed on for the sequel. They are obviously expecting big things from this movie.

I'm actually pretty stoked about this movie. I like the fact that it's a crime drama that is set in a modern-day fantasy world filled with humans, orcs, and fairies that all co-exist with each other. it also revolves around a magic wand that is apparently a big deal in this crazy alternate universe. Here's the synopsis for the upcoming movie:

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency has been cancelled

Michael Ahr Kirsten Howard Dec 19, 2017

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency won't be back for a third season, it's been decided...

Fans probably knew that a third season of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency was far from a sure thing, and sadly BBC America has announced its cancellation.

The sometimes crazy, always fun, undefinable show has often been critically favoured. Its manic dialogue and at times nonsensical-seeming storylines weren't for everyone, but for those who enjoyed a good puzzle, tight writing, and unbelievably lovable characters, hopes were high for a renewal. But it wasn't meant to be.

In the end, ratings for Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency were just too low. Averaging 248,000 viewers each week with a .07 share, the series is down only slightly from its season 1 average of 287,000 weekly viewers and a .09 share of the key demographic. Although these numbers were comparable to fellow BBC America series Orphan Black in its fifth season,

Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story Movie Reportedly Still In Development

On top of Episodes VIII, Episode IX and Rian Johnson’s planned fourth trilogy, Disney and Lucasfilm are also working on a host of Star Wars spinoff movies under the Anthology banner. Last year brought us Rogue One, next year will usher in Solo and sometime in the near future we’ll get an Obi-Wan standalone, too. That’s not all, though, as it appears now that an old project has been resurrected as well: the Boba Fett movie.

Star Wars fans might recall that a vehicle for the beloved bounty hunter was announced a few years ago, with Chronicle‘s Josh Trank attached to direct. After his career crashed and burned following 2014’s Fantastic Four, however, the Boba Fett movie seemed to have been shelved indefinitely. Back in August, though, we learned that Lucasfilm was thinking of resurrecting the project.

According to a new report from Omega Underground, it

Rian Johnson Has No Limitations With His New Star Wars Trilogy

Those that pay attention to these kinds of things might be forgiven for having the view that Lucasfilm – under the command of Kathleen Kennedy – has a problem playing well with filmmakers. The relaunch of the Star Wars franchise was, at first, filled with excitement and plans for an Anthology movie by Chronicle director Josh Trank – but he unexpectedly departed the project in its early stages. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, meanwhile, – though ultimately well-received – was fraught with tales of director Gareth Edwards being sidelined for reshoots and post-production.

Most recently, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from Solo: A Star Wars Story halfway through principal photography, and Colin Trevorrow parted ways with Star Wars: Episode IV amid rumours of discord between himself and senior Lucasfilm figures. Star Wars: The Last Jedi filmmaker Rian Johnson is here to demonstrate a different scenario, though, having given an interview

Pokemon Movie Detective Pikachu Gets Big Little Lies Star in the Lead

Pokemon Movie Detective Pikachu Gets Big Little Lies Star in the Lead
Legendary's Detective Pikachu has finally found its female lead, with Big Little Lies star Kathryn Newton entering talks with the studio. This comes just two weeks after Justice Smith signed on as the male lead, and with production reportedly set to begin in January 2018, there will likely be a flurry of casting announcements coming in the near future. It remains unclear how many more major roles will need to be filled, but the title character is by far the biggest.

Last month, an unconfirmed report revealed that the producers want to lock down an A-List action star to voice Detective Pikachu, with the four names on Legendary's "wish list" said to be Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds and Mark Wahlberg. Unfortunately, no story details have been given, and there are no details about who either Kathryn Newton or Justice Smith will play, or how they may be connected to Detective Pikachu.

John Landis' Canceled American Werewolf in London Sequel Sounds Amazing

John Landis' Canceled American Werewolf in London Sequel Sounds Amazing
An American Werewolf in London, one of the greatest horror movies ever made, never got the sequel it deserved. Director John Landis did have a pitch for one though, as revealed in the forthcoming book Beware The Moon: The Story of An American Werewolf In London. Now, the pitch for the sequel has been revealed, and it sounds pretty amazing. Here's what the sequel would have been about and how it almost came to be, according to John Landis.

"I was asked to do a sequel by PolyGram in 1991. The company, under Jon Peters and Peter Guber, made something like 10 or 12 movies, and the only one that made money was American Werewolf. They then left the company and were replaced by a guy called Michael Kuhn. He called me and said that they were interested in making a sequel. I entertained the idea for a little bit and then came

Justice League and the dangers of extensive reshoots

Ryan Lambie Nov 17, 2017

They're pricey, and can prove to be a huge risk. In the wake of Justice League, we look at the rise of extensive reshoots...

Nb: the following contains very mild spoilers for Justice League, but nothing you couldn't glean from the trailers.

You only have to look at the news that came out of the Warner-dc camp to see how plans for its Justice League team-up movie changed over time. Only two years ago - a relatively brief window, in blockbuster filmmaking terms - the studio announced that Justice League would comprise two parts, one scheduled for release in the autumn of 2017 and the second slated for the summer of 2019.

Netflix Is Recruiting a Will Smith Army to Promote Bright

Netflix Is Recruiting a Will Smith Army to Promote Bright
Is your name Will Smith? If so, Netflix, and the star of such movies as Independence Day and Suicide Squad, Will Smith, needs your help to promote their upcoming movie, Bright. That's right, apparently, the actor Will Smith is far too busy to handle the busy press schedule for Bright and he is in need of some other people with his same name to help fill in for him. At this point, we have more questions than answers, but this is a very real thing that is really happening.

Netflix recently released a video via their official Twitter account featuring Will Smith, who stars in Bright alongside Joel Edgerton. The video features Smith discussing the busy schedule Netflix has him on to promote the movie and, since he's a busy guy, he apparently can't do it all himself. So, he's requesting that anyone named Will Smith reach out to Netflix so they can help.

New Bright Trailer Is Lord of the Rings Meets Training Day

New Bright Trailer Is Lord of the Rings Meets Training Day
Netflix has been releasing a ton of original movies lately, and they plan on increasing that output next year. But few movies they release are going to be as high-profile as Bright, which arrives on the streaming service later this year. Now, a brand new trailer has been released that gives us a much better idea of what to expect, which pretty much looks like Lord of the Rings meets Training Day, as hard as that may be to believe.

The first teaser trailer for Bright gave us a very general idea of what to expect from the fantasy/sci-fi movie. Humans, Orcs and other fantastical creatures live together as if it's no big deal. Magical weapons exist. Stuff like that. But this full-length trailer actually gives us a sense of the story. Joel Edgerton is playing the first ever Orc who becomes a cop and Will Smith is stuck being his partner.
