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.
With the endless stream of reboots and re-adaptations and remakes and reimaginings and re-whatever-other-word-we’re-using-now (revivals!), news like this becomes inevitable. Chances are, if you even vaguely recall a classic television show, it’s going to come back, and the best you can hope for is something like 21 Jump Street. At worst? It will cinematically haunt your soul, revealing the true insidious nature of your nostalgia like no horror you have ever known before. And with that Herzog-ian thought, we move onto today’s news: New Line is developing a movie based on Three’s Company.
By now you have the release date for Captain America: Civil War tattooed on your brain, but — shocker! — there are other movies hitting theaters next month, believe it or not. In addition to Marvel's latest, we also have a new film from Shane Black, the sequel to Neighbors and, lest you forget, X-Men: Apocalypse. There's plenty more in our guide to May's new movie releases.
When Ben Affleck took the stage at Comic-Con last year to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was a mere matter of minutes before rumors began circulating that Warner Bros. was planning a new solo Batman film with Affleck set to star — and possibly direct. DC’s Geoff Johns confirmed that he was working on a script with Affleck, and since then the news has basically been repeatedly confirmed via interviews with Zack Snyder, Johns and Affleck. And now WB has gone and made it officially official by announcing that a standalone Batman film is in development with Affleck. But we already knew that.
James Gunn is currently in production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so when recently asked if he’d return to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3, the director seemed uncertain about whether he wants to stick with Marvel or move on to something else. Marvel hasn’t formally revealed any of its Phase 4 films, but we’ve all just assumed that another Guardians sequel is part of that plan — according to Kevin Feige, that assumption is correct.
Forget that crazy-expensive David Ayer-Will Smith fantasy-action buddy cop project — David Wain’s National Lampoon origin movie is the most exciting original feature brewing over at Netflix right now. And now that the casting process has begun, things are getting even more interesting for the film, as Joel McHale and Broad City’s John Gemberling have landed two very iconic roles, playing Chevy Chase and John Belushi, respectively.
You may be thinking, "Hey, didn't a movie about a younger Barack Obama just premiere at Sundance?" You would be correct — but unlike Southside With You, which centered on the first date between Barack and Michelle Obama, the upcoming film Barry focuses more on Barack pre-Michelle. Newcomer Devon Terrell will play the younger Obama, with The Witch breakout star Anya Taylor-Joy in the key role of a college friend.
Lucasfilm released an announcement video a couple of weeks ago to kick off production on Star Wars: Episode VIII, showing just a tiny glimpse of footage that made it look as if Rian Johnson was picking up where J.J. Abrams left off. If you had any doubts that Episode VIII would begin where The Force Awakens ends, Daisy Ridley has confirmed that this is definitely the case — and that Luke Skywalker will have much more to do this time around.
If you’ve been itching for more Frozen, you’re about to get a whole lot of it. In addition to the previously announced Frozen movie sequel, Disney has officially confirmed plans to take the hit animated blockbuster to Broadway. The stage show won’t debut until 2018, which gives you plenty of time to save up some cash and maybe have a kid who will be old enough to appreciate it by then.

The venerable, longtime Late Show host is ending his 33-year run with tonight’s episode, which promises to be a fantastic, hilarious and appropriately heartwarming sendoff.
