  1. Japan Celebrates Opening Of Hollywood Godzilla With Gold And To-Scale Statues

    What did America have? A Fiat ad?

    In honor of Godzilla's 60th anniversary and the Japanese release of the Hollywood reboot, the people of Tokyo have erected several statues in honor of the lizard, including a 1/7 scale Gojira in a public park and a ten-inch tall, 33 pound, solid gold figure that could be yours for "just" $1.47 million.

  2. Confirmed: New Stargate Trilogy Will Start The Story Over

    Why, Ra? Why?

    Confused about how the planned Stargate reboot could build on the 1994 film? Turns out it won't... kind of. Dean Devlin, co-writer of the original movie, told The Portland Business Journal that the new trilogy will be millions of light years away from the original. Sorry, Sha'uri: guess you're stuck with him.

  3. Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin Confirm New Stargate Trilogy

    Welcome to Earth! Wait, which remake?

    After years of rumors, MGM and Warner Bros. announced yesterday that they will be partnering on a trilogy "re-imagining" 1994's Stargate. Co-writers on the original film, Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, will return for the new franchise with Emmerich directing and Devlin producing.

  4. MGM Launches Rebooted Stargate Trilogy With Original Director and Writer

    It Belongs in a Museum!

    Ahh, 1994's Stargate, one of the most endearing, earnestly optimistic and ambitious science fiction films to ever be founded on the idea that it's so impossible for brown people to have built the pyramids that it must have been aliens. Bask in the glory of James Spader's awkward academic phase, or at least the awkward academic as interpreted by mid-nineties cinema. Statistically, 70% of these roles were played by Jeff Goldblum, but you might get to see another actor in that role real soon.

  5. Stargate Is The Latest 90s Sci-Fi Classic That Might Be Getting a Reboot

    Once More With Feeling

    I have a confession to make: I didn't watch Stargate until around 16 hours ago. Maybe if I'd spent less of my childhood summers watching Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and Clue on VHS, rewinding them, and watching them again right away, I wouldn't have missed out on James Spader The Adorable Floppy-Haired Scientist And His Adventures In Outer-Space Egypt (Featuring Holy Crap Is That Djimon Hounsou?). Alas, I was behind the times on that one. But I have watched it now! And just in time for director Roland Emmerich to announce his plans to it as a movie trilogy.

  6. Roland Emmerich Says Jeff Goldblum Will Be In the ID4 Sequel, Gives You a Reason to Watch It Whether You Wanted One Or Not

    And All Was Right With the World

    But which other, less-relevant-to-our-interests actors than Jeff Goldblum (just being honest) have and haven't left their alien-fighting days behind them? Hit the jump to find out.

  7. Here’s What the Independence Day Sequels (Yes, That’s Sequels, Plural) Will Be About

    It Came From Outer Space

    Director Roland Emmerich knows that the world doesn't need an Independence Day sequel. It needs two Independence Day sequels. Luckily, he's all too willing to provide, and he's given us some info on what ID Forever Part One and ID Forever Part Two (yes, those are their titles. I refuse to say anything good about them, even sarcastically) will be about. I'm not saying it's aliens. But it's aliens.

  8. Sequels to Independence Day Now Have Names, Are Depressing

    Remember Independence Day, the plucky action flick that paired the lovable Will Smith with the amusingly cynical Jeff Goldblum back in 1996? Well, there are two sequels in development for the franchise. Not one, but two. If this still leaves you with a glimmer of hope that they'll defy the odds and somehow turn out amazing, the titles that have been attached to the duo should stamp that thought out quickly. Hint: They're not good.

  9. Creators of Independence Day Sequels Still Making Independence Day Sequels

    Don't Panic

    Independence Day will be celebrating its seventeenth anniversary next year with a rerelease to theaters (I was lucky enough to see it in theaters last year at a local midnight 4th of July screening, and let me tell you... it's just as gloriously goofy as you remember). But that might not be all. Director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin are still promising us not one but two sequels to the other movie where Jeff Goldblum says "must go faster." The biggest hurdle, they say, would be getting the cast back together. Which I'm interpreting as "getting Will Smith on board."

  10. Independence Day Writer Gave The Studio Back Their Money The First Time He Tried To Write A Sequel

    Not a Misprint

    When we first heard about an Independence Day sequel we weren't really sure how we felt except to say it had to have Jeff Goldblum attached to star. Well producer/writer of the original, Dean Devlin, is still working on the script but it turns out he tried once and was so disappointed with it he gave the studio back their money. Find out exactly how that went down plus some new details on Independence Day 2 and whether or not Will Smith will be along for the ride.
