Though we know from somewhere deep within the dangers of getting too excited about Men In Black 3, our bruised little hearts just can’t help beating a little faster whenever we hear it mentioned. With the news that glorious human Emma Thompson has joined the already stellar cast, could it be that our excitement is justified? Only time will tell…
Crimety, the Sherlock Holmes 2 news just keeps on coming. Yesterday we leant (with great learning joy) that Stephen Fry was to take the role of Holmes’s brother Mycroft in the Guy Richie sequel. Today, we have a Moriarty. Mad Men’s Jared Harris has bagged the role of the Sherlock’s arch-nemesis, apparently plucking the part away from the likes of Brad Pitt and Gary Oldman.
Well, it’s pretty hard to argue with the stats. Resident Evil: The Afterlife opened at the number one spot in the US, even though reviews all around have been pretty lukewarm. The makers have taken this as indication that the world is baying for more Resident Evil action, and have confirmed that number 5 will be getting made. Whoopee.
Like a moony teenagers in love, we relish any chance we get to learn more about Kick-Ass 2. And happily for everyone, it seems the comic’s writer Mark Millar is keen to talk about it. In a recent interview with Empire, Mark has dished the dirt on the future of Red Mist and his gang of baddies – and it looks pretty damn dark..
Following great DVD sales in the US, it’s beginning to look more and more likely that a sequel to the glorious Kick Ass will soon get off the ground. Though the films makers have yet to comment, the comic’s writer Mark Millar told radio 5 that the film is officially on.
After the surprise success of Piranha 3D (it’s gotten medium to positive reviews, as well as being rated 83% fresh in the hallowed halls of Rotten Tomatoes), it’s been confirmed that a sequel is on the way. More beautiful and naked flesh being torn asunder? Erm, hurrah?
Released in 2005, the original Nanny McPhee was a strong successor to Mary Poppins in every way. Adapted from the Nurse Matilda books by Christianna Brand, the film pitted seven mischievous tykes against an ugly woman with a snaggle tooth, warts and an oversized nose, who had a few tricks up her sleeve when it came to childcare. Susanna White’s colourful sequel casts an even more bewitching spell, introducing the mysterious nanny to a family in crisis in wartime Britain.
