GODZILLA vs KONG: "Tonnes of Surprises and "Brand new monsters"
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
While the Twitter Kids are filling their feeds, bitching about the projected runtime of GODZILLA VS KONG, clutching their precious pearls while having no idea how the movie will play out at the possible 113 minutes, this is what Director Adam Wingard is talking about at GamesRadar.

Godzilla vs Kong will feature "tonnes of surprises" and "some brand new monsters"
By Jack Shepherd, Matt Maytum
Godzilla: King of the Monsters revealed how widespread the Titan presence on Earth really is – and although Godzilla vs. Kong may focus on the radioactive lizard and giant ape punching each other, you can also expect a few more monsters to crash this colossus mash.

Dare I Dream?

A GALAXY QUEST SEQUEL? SERIOUSLY?
We know how sequels work. They either go So Right, or are a mere retread of the first, or they go hideously wrong.

But hey, I'm a fan of GALAXY QUEST so obviously I'm on the side of optimism!

That said. They don't need to replace Alan Rickman's Alexander Dane character. The movie can open with the character deceased, which ended the second run of their show. We begin years later - realistically, 22 years later - a TV reboot is in the works (ala ST or BSG), and if the old cast wants to be part of the new show, they must deal with much younger stars now playing their original parts. Imagine the hilarious hijinks that can ensue!

IF <-- and that's a big IF - the new GALAXY QUEST is done right and not trashed up and thrown to the wolves for a one weekend splash and sink.

So anyway, I found this at Collider,

'Galaxy Quest' Revival Still in the Works, Says Sigourney Weaver
By Matt Goldberg
Galaxy Quest is a gem of a movie, and some would even argue that it's the best Star Trek film that Star Trek never made. The story of a group of TV actors on a canceled sci-fi series being recruited by aliens to go on a real mission is consistently endearing even if you've never seen an episode of a sci-fi series, but it really nails the peculiarities and details of the genre in a loving way.

Spawn roars

Live action SPAWN update -
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
On this day last year, MovieWeb reported that shooting would start in 2020 on a Live-Action SPAWN.

I didn't buy it. If SPAWN was only getting heat in March 2020 and that was due to investor interest in THE JOKER's box office, I said that shooting wouldn't start until next year.

Well, I was right but for the wrong reasons. By March 3, nobody outside of the Trump administration was taking COVID-19 seriously and even the president was promising the world that this would be a minor deal. California Representative Nancy Pelosi, for her part, was inviting tourists to come to San Francisco and party in the streets. April 6 was the first day that the CDC put a graph showing the mortality rate online and even then only counted 5 COVID-19 deaths nationwide.

What a Difference A Year Makes!

Spawn #1: Now who's Next?

Nobody knew that by this day in 2021, we'd have a new president and administration and COVID-19 would be pandemic fire raging out of control and unchecked, despite a year filled with precautions and now vaccines.

So yeah, far more movies than SPAWN got the pushback as some theater chains shuttered forever while others just barely held on.

That said, SPAWN isn't down for the count yet. Back in late February of this year, Todd McFarlane said this at ComicBook.com,

Russ Burlingame at ComicBook posted his article with a video from Jim Viscardi as they talked Todd.
