Way back in 2012 (or at least it feels way back), Netflix and Disney struck a deal for all of Disney’s movies — including Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm — to stream exclusively on Netflix Instant. According to the terms of their agreement, the deal wouldn’t kick in until 2016, which just so happens to be the year in which we are currently living. As announced today, Netflix will officially begin streaming Disney films in September, but that doesn’t mean the studio’s entire library will magically appear in your Instant browser.
Unlike most comedy sequels, the Austin Powers franchise only became more successful at the box office with each additional outing (sorry, Neighbors 2), with Austin Powers in Goldmember generating $300 million worldwide. It’s been 14 years since Mike Myers last donned the mop-top and spouted a bunch of delightfully cheesy innuendoes, and though we may not be any closer to a fourth Austin Powers outing, director Jay Roach says it could still very much happen.
In case you didn’t get enough inspiration from our list of the 20 films you absolutely must see this summer, then perhaps our guide to June’s new movie releases will give you a few more ideas. Next months brings sequels to Independence Day, The Conjuring and Now You See Me, a new Pixar film, and a comedy from the Lonely Island trio. And that’s only half of it. Did we mention Daniel Radcliffe’s magical farting corpse? That’s something you definitely do not want to miss (and we say that sincerely).
Ask any Dark Tower fan about their hopes for a big screen adaptation, and they’ll all tell you the same thing: “I’ll believe it when I see it.” Even then, most of us refuse to believe it’s actually happening until we’re sitting in a theater and the Dark Tower title card appears on screen. Well, we’re definitely a big step closer to that dream becoming a reality, as new set photos from the Stephen King adaptation reveal Idris Elba in full Gunslinger dress, sandalwood grips and all.
It has been way too long since Beck Bennett’s Mr. Patterson made an appearance on SNL, but the man-baby makes his hilarious return this week, transitioning from running an office to running for office — it really doesn’t take much to see how this sketch came to be, but it’s still absolutely delightful nonetheless.
We’ve long been promised / threatened a sequel to Space Jam, and Warner Bros. is determined to follow through on that plan, recently tapping Furious 6 director Justin Lin to helm the project. But the director of the original film doesn’t think any of this is a good idea; in fact, he thinks WB should go ahead and pump the brakes on Space Jam 2 before it even takes off.
If you haven’t yet had your fill of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland — or of live-action updates on children’s classics, for that matter — a new film from director Brenda Chapman is doubling down on all of the above. The co-director of Pixar’s Brave is preparing to make her live-action debut with Come Away, a movie that combines elements of J.M. Barrie and Lewis Carroll’s beloved books into one magical (and kind of sad) story.
Bad Moms looks like something akin to The Hangover but, you know, for moms. It's a fair comparison, since the new comedy was written by the guys who brought you The Hangover. In keeping with the good mom / bad mom theme, STX has released green and red band trailers — just in case you feel like Kathryn Hahn's declaration of "I say we go punch that chick right in the t—" is a little too NSFW for your delicate sensibilities. Whatever it is, Bad Moms is definitely not for kids.
Although Goosebumps didn’t do crazy-amazing business at the box office, the 2015 film based on R.L. Stine’s prolific youth horror franchise did well enough — more importantly, the surprisingly delightful adaptation appealed to fans of all ages with a style and tone reminiscent of ’80s family horror flicks. If you were a fan of Goosebumps, then you’re surely a fan of today’s news, as Sony is moving ahead on a sequel with original director Rob Letterman and screenwriter Darren Lemke in talks to return.
Disney is really doubling down on its growing live-action reboot / remake empire, claiming five more release dates for its upcoming projects and officially confirming several previously reported films, including The Jungle Book 2, Maleficent 2, Tim Burton’s Dumbo and more. The studio now has a total of seven release dates set for various live-action projects, and though they have yet to formally attach specific titles to these dates, reports suggest that at least one of the new dates belongs to The Jungle Book sequel.
