20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Remake May Shoot in Early 2015
I’m selfishly hoping that Disney and Fincher came to some agreement that would see him back onboard 20,000 Leagues (I’m dying to see what Fincher can do with an adventure story told on a massive scale), but that may be too optimistic. What’s more likely is that Disney is moving ahead on a new iteration of the project without Fincher’s involvement. From a business perspective, it makes sense that Disney would want to capitalize on the 20,000 Leagues brand and Australia tax incentive with or without Fincher, so I’m very curious to see where things go from here. Hopefully more light is shed on this situation soon.

Jungle Book: Origins Gets Benedict Cumberbatch to Voice the Villain
Interessssssssting choice, but first place goes to Favreau. You simply can't top Idris Elba as Shere Khan. And BC is kinda played out as far as voice work goes. I am actually more interested in what Serkis does with the story but I will no doubt see both versions.
Automata Trailer: Antonio Banderas Faces a Robot Uprising
Millennium Entertainment has released the first Automata trailer for director Gabe Ibáñez’s upcoming sci-fi thriller. The I, Robot-esque story takes place in the year 2044 where robots are ubiquitous and operate under two fundamental laws that prevent them from harming humans or themselves. Antonio Banderas plays an insurance agent of the ROC robotic corporation who discovers that the robots may be more human than people are led to believe. Though we’ve seen this story many times before, the film actually looks quite good. Dylan McDermott fills the role of the robot-hating human, while Ibáñez imbues the picture with a washed out aesthetic reminiscent of Blade Runner that reflects the dire nature of humanity.
Hit the jump to watch the Automata trailer. The film also stars Melanie Griffith and will be released in theaters and VOD on October 10th.

Watch the GODZILLA Final Battle and the Power of Atomic Breath
Odd that they would put the best part of the movie up for grabs. I am so buying the damned thing when it hits the streets and so should you. Upon reflection, was it perfect? Nope. But it was perfect enough to reassure me that the franchise is in the right hands. And with Toho letting Edwards/Legendary open up the sandbox, they seem to feel the same way. Buy this to show that you want MORE!!!!!!!!!!!
Outcast Trailer Features Nicolas Cage Attempting a British Accent
WAIT...Wooden Christensen AND Nic Cage doing an English accent??? Don't want to see...BUT I AM GONNA!!!!!In Nicolas Cage‘s long, glorious, and bizarre filmography, Outcast could be more than a minor curiosity. The directorial debut of Nick Powell (stunt coordinator on Resident Evil: Retribution), Outcast takes place during the Crusades, and Cage plays Gallain, a rebellious outlaw who teams up with Arken (Hayden Christensen, who, to my surprise, is still in the acting business), a young man looking for redemption by protecting the rightful heir to the Chinese throne. If you needed more proof of China’s growing power in the global film market, look to Outcast. First Cage; tomorrow: THE WORLD. But in the meantime, they only have Cage, or, more specifically, Cage trying to do a British accent, which is about as wonderful as you’d expect.

What the hell...no Rik Mayall in sight...
Oh...well ok.Here’s the official synopsis for Young Ones:
YOUNG ONES is set in a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, one that dictates everything from the macro of political policy to the detailed micro of interpersonal family and romantic relationships.

He wants Ernest’s land for himself, and will go to any length to get it.
