Only a few weeks into Disney's acquisition of Fox and already we've seen the hammer come down on a few projects. That was to be expected as the Mouse House evaluates everything they have, but it was assumed certain things were safe. The medieval epic Mouse Guard looked like one of those, however that's turned out not to be the case. According to THR, Disney has halted production on Mouse

There are a lot of things Fast Color isn't. It isn't particularly exciting, or hopeful, and surprisingly it isn't all that colorful. But let's talk about what the movie is, and that's an unconventional "superhero" movie that deserves attention for its focus on three super-powered women of color. There's Black Girl Magic sprinkled all over the place in this movie, and while it's hard to call it

With the rise of white supremacist groups around the country, the arrival of Guy Nattiv's English-language debut Skin couldn't be more timely. The film is based on a true story, chronicled in Nattiv's Oscar-winning short of the same name, and stars Jamie Bell in a role not too dissimilar from Edward Norton's in American History X. Bell plays Bryon Widner, who by the age of 14 had already

The Child's Play franchise has been around a long time and has a large, loyal fanbase who eat up the killer's dolls murderous activities. But after so many years and questionable sequels it's probably a good idea to freshen up the property for a new generation who may have seen these movies as a joke. I think when we first heard this modernized Chucky would be a smart doll who uses smart

Well, we've referred to Fast & Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw as the superhero movie of the summer, and that's even more true with this latest trailer.

As of now Marvel has yet to have one of their solo franchises go beyond three movies, but could that change after Thor: Ragnarok? The third film was easily the best for the Asgardian thunder god and we have director Taika Waititi to thank for that. There's been hope out there that he'd return to direct another Marvel movie, and according to Tessa Thompson who plays Valkyrie it may be on Thor 4

Another casualty of the Disney/Fox deal, and one that we probably should've seen coming. Live-action X-Men series The Gifted has been canceled after two seasons, just following the season finale. That finale will now have to be a series finale, and from what I hear from friends it ended on a cliffhanger. Perhaps Disney, who now own Fox and the entire X-Men franchise, will allow for another

Train to Busan is one of those movies a lot of people have probably heard about but not actually seen. The South Korean zombie flick is a fast-paced thrill and one of the best the genre has seen in a long time, which makes it extra cool that Marvel has tapped the film's star to join The Eternals cast. According to The Wrap, Ma Dong-seok aka Don Lee has joined Angelina Jolie and Kumail

The Doctor of Thuganomics, the leader of the Cenation, John Cena, may be the latest member of the Suicide Squad. According to Variety, Cena is in talks for a role in James Gunn's sorta-sequel in an unknown role. I'd take an Attitude Adjustment for it to be King Shark. Cena would be joining the previously-cast Idris Elba, whose role is still unclear, and Margot Robbie who is reprising her
