Power Rangers Is Already Teasing a Sequel With the Character You Would Immediately Guess

If the Power Rangers movie meets any measure of success on its release this weekend, producer Haim Saban already has plans for not one but five more movies to follow it.

Once you get there, it's often hell to try and participate in as a fan, because you're spending most of your time either in line, or walking from one end of the Convention Center to the other. So, I can see why Official con coverage online would be appealing. SDCC will be trying to meet that interest with a subscription-based VOD channe

Gods of Egypt Unsurprisingly Flops With $14 Million Debut

Apparently, Lionsgate had hoped to turn it into a franchise? Oops.

Today, in news that probably surprises no one, the whitewashed Gods of Egypt (a.k.a. "the movie about Egypt with no actual Egyptians in it," as I heard someone say behind me in the theater when the trailer popped up before Deadpool) is not making a lot of money.

Warren Ellis’ RED to be Adapted for Television; Sadly, Probably Without Helen Mirren

Retired and Extremely Dangerous

The RED films are awesome, action-y fun (based on the Warren Ellis comic) that, much like Constance Tillet in my previous post today, remind me that you're never too old to whoop some serious ass. They give me hope that I, too, may one day grow up to look flawless like Helen Mirren and wield machine guns with abandon. I have high hopes!
