Horror Spin-Off – First Teaser Trailer for ‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’

The Strangers: Prey at Night Teaser

“Leave us alone!” “But we’ve just started…” Aviron Pictures has launched the first teaser trailer for a new horror spin-off titled The Strangers: Prey at Night. Instead of actually making a sequel to cult horror hit The Strangers (directed by Bryan Bertino in 2008), they went off and decided to make an “inspired by” film. This one follows a family staying in a secluded mobile home park for a night, who are visited by three masked psychopaths. So the same masked weirdos are back, but a different time/place. The cast includes Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison, & Lewis Pullman. This really does look creepy with a few very scary moments, just not sure if it will bring anything new to the horror/slasher table. ›››

Sony Pictures Sets ‘Spider-Man’ Spin-Off ‘Silver and Black’ for 2019, Pulls ‘Bad Boys 3’ from Calendar

Sony Pictures - Columbia Pictures - Silver and Black Release Date

Sony Pictures is setting and shuffling a handful of release dates for upcoming movies in 2018 and 2019.

Sony and their Columbia Pictures banner have set a release date for their second Spider-Man spin-off Silver and Black, as well as the sequel to the hit drug trafficking thriller Sicario. Meanwhile,the release dates for Barbie and Bad Boys 3 have been shuffled around along with a few more projects in the coming years. Get the Silver and Black release date and more information below.

First up, Sony Pictures seems to be going on all in this separate Spider-Man universe that will not be tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, nor involve the webslinger himself. After setting Venom starring Tom Hardy for an October 2018 debut, the studio has now staked out February 8, 2019 as the release date for Silver & Black.

For those who haven’t kept up with the title, Silver and Black will bring together two characters from Marvel Comics who frequently showed up in Spider-Man story arcs. There’s Silver Sable, a mercenary who hunts down war criminals, and Black Cat, a master thief not unlike Catwoman whose secret identity is Felicia Hardy, a character who became a love interest for Peter Parker in the comics. Beyond the Lights director Gina Prince-Bythewood is slated to direct, but we have no details on the story just yet.

Next, Sony Pictures also brought some bad news for Bad Boys fans eagerly awaiting a reunion of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Though the sequel titled Bad Boys for Life had been set for November 9, 2018, it has now been removed from the calendar entirely with no replacement date named yet. The movie has been pushed back several times now, and it’s starting to feel like a pipe dream rather than a project that will actually happen.

There will still be some action to behold from Sony in 2018 though as the Sicario sequel directed by Stefano Sollima has been slated to arrived on June 29, 2018. The film has been officially called Sicario 2: Soldado, and it brings back Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin from the first movie, but Emily Blunt is sitting this one out.

Meanwhile, a few films have been delayed on Sony’s release calendar. The big screen Barbie movie has been pushed back to August 8, 2018 from a previous June 2018 date. Alethea Jones is still set to direct with Anne Hathaway playing the title doll from Mattel. Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren‘s feature film debut The Nightingale will arrive on January 25, 2019 instead of the previous August 2018 date, and the comedy Holmes and Watson with Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as the detective duo (respectively) will now arrive on November 9, 2018 instead of the previously set August 2018 date.

Sony Pictures hasn’t had the best year in 2017, so hopefully their schedule for 2018 will offer up more positive results for them at the box office. Unfortunately, they won’t have an official new Spider-Man movie to help them, but maybe Venom will work out for them instead.

‘Rogue One’ Star Riz Ahmed in Talks for ‘Venom’ Spin-Off, May or May Not Be Carnage

Riz Ahmed - Carnage - Venom Cast

Sony Pictures is getting their Spider-Man franchise spin-off Venom ready to go. Tom Hardy has been attached to the project as the title character for some time now, and Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer will be behind the camera for the film that is said to have no ties to the Spider-Man played by Tom Holland in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now the supporting cast is starting to fill out.

Reports have indicated that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actor Riz Ahmed is in talks to play a popular Marvel Comics character in Venom. While the character isn’t being disclosed at this time, there is word on which character it won’t be. Find out more about Venom cast addition below.

Variety was the first to report on the Venom cast looking to recruit Riz Ahmed. While their reports doesn’t mention which character he would play if a deal comes together, The Hollywood Reporter has heard from sources that it won’t be Carnage, even though that’s the role in the film that Sony Pictures has been looking to cast. Carnage was supposed to be the villain and Riz Ahmed is said to have been considered for the role, but the script has changed since then and now he’s reportedly up for a different role.

Meanwhile, Jeff Sneider from The Tracking Board says his sources are torn as to what role Riz Ahmed would play, with one trustworthy source saying it will be Carnage. So it sounds like it could go either way.

Reporter Justin Kroll at Variety indicated on Twitter that Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) and Mathias Schoenarts (The Danish Girl) were also in the running for the role, so if Riz Ahmed somehow isn’t able to make it through negotiations, the studio does have other options at their disposal. Unfortunately, none of those options give us an idea as to who the character they could have played will be if it’s not actually Carnage.

Considering that Spider-Man: Homecoming has already used Vulture and Shocker, not to mention hinting at Scorpion, maybe Venom will venture into different villain territory by bringing someone like Kraven the Hunter or Mysterio into play (especially since there are spin-offs for those characters in the works). Or maybe they’ll dig deep into sci-fi Spider-Man territory by bringing Scarlet Spider into the mix, who is actually a clone of Spider-Man. That sounds pretty far fetched, but Venom is supposed to be a straight-up sci-fi movie, and potentially R-rated, so maybe it’s not too crazy.

Very little is known about Venom at this point, but the script is being written by Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower), with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing the movie along with Sony’s Amy Pascal.

As of now Venom is slated to arrive in theaters on October 5, 2018.

black-ish Spinoff Now Called grown-ish, Gains Series Regulars

black-ish spinoff (formerly college-ish) will now be called grown-ish and has cast three series regulars

black-ish spinoff (formerly college-ish) will now be called grown-ish and has cast three series regulars

FreeformDisney‘s young adult television and streaming network has announced that the upcoming black-ish spinoff formerly known as college-ish will now be called grown-ish. In addition, Emily Arlook, Chris Parnell and Trevor Jackson have been announced as grown-ish series regulars.

RELATED: Yara Shahidi and Deon Cole will headline the black-ish spinoff, tentatively titled college-ish

Creator and executive producer Kenya Barris said, “grown-ish reflects what we’ll be dealing with in the show – that in-between place where you’re not quite an adult but facing grown world problems for the first time. Where black-ish examines what it means to be black, grown-ish is an examination of what it is and what it means to be grown.”

From black-ish executive producer Kenya Barris comes a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education. Yara Shahidi portrays Zoey – Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow’s (Tracee Ellis Ross) popular, entitled, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter – as she heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest. Yara is joined by black-ish‘s Deon Cole (Charlie) who portrays Charlie, Dre’s eccentric and unpredictable co-worker at Stevens & Lido. Zoey runs into Charlie during college orientation where she learns that he moonlights as an adjunct marketing professor. Arlook will portray Miriam, a freshman know-it-all at Southern California University with a no-holds-barred attitude. Parnell will portray the dean of Southern California University, and Jackson will portray a socially conscious sophomore at Southern California University.

Kenya Barris, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and Brian Dobbins are executive producers on grown-ish, from ABC Studios. The show was written by Kenya Barris and Larry Wilmore.

What do you guys think of the new title for the black-ish spinoff? Are you interested in grown-ish? What do you think of the new series regulars? We want to hear from you! Leave your thoughts in the comments below or tweet us @ComingSoonnet.

Jorge Gutierrez to Develop LEGO Spinoff The Billion Brick Race

Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez on board to develop LEGO spinoff Billion Brick Race

Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez on board to develop LEGO spinoff The Billion Brick Race

Director Jorge Gutierrez is on board to develop the upcoming spinoff of The LEGO Movie, called The Billion Brick Race (working title), according to THR. The film was originally being developed by Drew Pearce and Jason Segel, from an idea of Pearce’s. Details are currently scarce for the film. Jorge Gutierrez is known for his work directing Book of Life and the Emmy-winning TV series El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera.

The next films in the LEGO Movie franchise are The LEGO Ninjago Movie which opens in theaters on September 22, and The LEGO Movie Sequel, which opens on February 8, 2019.

In this big-screen Ninjago adventure, the battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja (Dave Franco), along with his friends, who are all secret warriors and LEGO Master Builders. Led by kung fu master Wu (Jackie Chan), as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon (Justin Theroux), the Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their true power.

A sequel to the original 3D computer animated film, The LEGO Movie Sequel follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

What do you think of the choice of Jorge Gutierrez for The Billion Brick Race? Which LEGO movie are you most excited for? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or tweet us @ComingSoonnet.

‘Labyrinth’ Spinoff Will Be Directed By ‘Don’t Breathe’ Director Fede Alvarez…Uh, What?

labyrinth-1

Are you ready to return to the mystical world of Jim Henson’s 1986 film Labyrinth? TriStar Pictures sure hopes you are, because after years of stops and starts, they’ve hired director Fede Alvarez to helm a continuation. Yes, I assure you that you read that correctly: the guy who made Don’t Breathe and the Evil Dead remake is making a new Labyrinth movie.

Labyrinth wasn’t a hit upon initial release, but the movie has since become a cult classic and a cultural touchstone, especially for women who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s. I came to the film late – I only saw it for the first time a few years ago – but it has great characters led by a young Jennifer Connelly and an absolutely mesmerizing performance by David Bowie, and I can see why a generation holds it close to their hearts.

A sequel or continuation of has been in the works since at least 2014, and last year, it was reported that Guardians of the Galaxy writer Nicole Perlman was tapped to write the screenplay for a remake. She quickly took to Twitter to clarify the situation:

But now Deadline reports that TriStar has hired Alvarez to direct and co-write the screenplay with Jay Basu (Monsters: Dark Continent), and there’s no mention of Perlman’s name anywhere, so it seems like she’s off the project. She’s currently writing Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel with Inside Out writer Meg LeFauve.

But let’s take a step back and talk about how strange of a choice Alvarez is for this material. Deadline’s sources assure them that this Labyrinth movie will be a “new story within the universe created in the original movie,” it’s specifically “not a remake,” and David Bowie’s character – Jareth the Goblin King – won’t be involved. So even though we don’t know anything about its plot, it’s safe to assume The Henson Company and TriStar, who are co-producing this film, will attempt to recapture the original’s tone so they can aim at a similar age group. (Jim Henson directed the first film, and his daughter Lisa Henson will be a producer on the new installment.)

Alvarez has directed a violent Evil Dead remake, the disturbing and suspenseful Don’t Breathe, and he’s now working on The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Sony’s sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. None of those projects are anywhere near “family friendly,” so this strikes me as a peculiar choice. But when I was watching Don’t Breathe, I remember being incredibly impressed by his ability to stretch tension to its breaking point, so if he’s able to tackle a more lighthearted tone with that same level of control, he might actually do the impossible and make a Labyrinth movie that lives up to expectations of fans who adore the original.

What do you think? Is Alvarez the right guy to tackle a new Labyrinth movie?
