In 2017, Netflix released around 50 original films on its streaming site, a huge increase from the 30 it introduced in 2016. Next year, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos says, they plan to make it 80.
American adaptations of successful foreign films will never go out of style (though it’s always a crapshoot as to whether they’ll actually be any good or not). German Oscar contender Toni Erdmann is getting an American remake, courtesy of Kristen Wiig and Jack Nicholson, and now A Man Called Ove, the bestselling Swedish book adapted last year by Hannes Holm (and nominated for two Academy Awards), is getting remade courtesy of one Tom Hanks.
The Purge movies have continued to act as unforgiving social and political satire, as unsubtle as they are violent, and that trend will only go further in the next installment in the series. The fourth film, titled The Purge: The Island, takes place on the very first Purge Night, confined to the shores of Staten Island, and the concept sounds appropriately messed up.
Aardman Animations, the folks who brought us Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, and Wallace & Gromit, are back with another delightful feature about a young caveman whose way of life is on the brink of extinction. Early Man stars the voice talents of Eddie Redmayne as Stone Age caveman Dug whose tribe is caught between one era of man and another wielding weapons made of metal, mammoths, and soccer.
Warner Bros. and DC are making a lot of choices lately, and one of those choices is having multiple movies featuring the Joker, but not all featuring the actor who first played the character canonically in their universe. Jared Leto is not being courted for the Martin Scorsese-produced Joker origin movie, a move that makes sense considering they’re probably going for someone younger (but which does not make sense considering… who in the world was asking for a Joker origin movie??). Leto is, understandably, “a little confused” about the whole thing, but he also gets it. Kinda.
Mean Girls is finally, finally coming to Broadway. Rumors of a musical have abounded for years, and now Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels are bringing it to us as early as next spring. That’s so — well, you know.
Move over, Ghostbusters and Ocean’s 11, there’s a new all-female reboot in town to ruin everyone’s childhoods! Warner Bros. has greenlit an all-gal Lord of the Flies adaptation from writers Scott McGehee and David Siegel that’ll make you never want to go on a camping trip with your buddies ever again.
