The British Film Institute is set to re-release Stanley Kubrick’s seminal film 2001: A Space Odyssey into theaters this November, so it’s only natural that we’d get a brand-new trailer 46 years after it was released.

Warner Bros. announces 10 DC movies, including 'Wonder Woman,' 'Green Lantern,' and two 'Justice League' films
Everyone knew that Warner Bros. was planning to release a fleet of superhero movies based on the DC Universe. And now studio head Kevin Tsujihara has revealed the titles of those superhero movies, announcing an ambitious slate of 10 films spread throughout interlocking franchises that will star beloved characters like Superman and Batman, plus lesser-known characters like Shazam and Cyborg. They’re also making a new Green Lantern movie, but not until 2020, by which time Ryan Reynolds’ child will be five years old and his parents will never talk about how they met, not ever.
Here are the 10 announced films. (Click here for some deeper thoughts about all the DC movies.) READ FULL STORY
Jon and Ponch better dust off their motorcycles and clean their aviator sunglasses, because they’re about to hit the big screen.
Sources have confirmed that Warner Bros is teaming with writer, director, and star Dax Shepard on an upcoming big-screen remake of CHiPS, the popular television series that ran from 1977 to 1983 and followed two California patrol officers as they rode around freeways, handed out tickets, and just generally looked cool.
Shepard is on board to star as Officer Jon Baker (originally portrayed by Larry Wilcox) with Michael Pena in the role of Frank Poncherello (originally portrayed by Erik Estrada). According to Deadline, who first reported the news, the remake is planning to offer a more serious take on the original series.
Guy Ritchie has his eyes on Charlie Hunnam for the lead role in Warner Bros.’ upcoming King Arthur saga, sources confirm to EW. The Sons of Anarchy actor is the director’s top choice and is in final negotiations to play the medieval warrior.
Elizabeth Olsen is also in talks for the female lead in the Joby Harold-penned project, which, according to Deadline, could be a six-film franchise. Idris Elba has been rumored to be circling a role as well.
Hunnam, whose Sons of Anarchy starts up its seventh and final season on Sept. 9, also starred in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Pacific Rim and can be seen in Guillermo del Toro’s horror Crimson Peak, which is expected to hit theaters in 2015. He’s also known for being the guy to sign on for and then promptly drop out of the big-screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
This article has been updated to reflect the fact that Crimson Peak will open on Oct. 16, 2015, not in 2016. We regret the error.
It’s not going to be Batman versus Superman versus Captain America after all.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 were both set to arrive in theaters May 6, 2016, but Warner Bros’ Caped Crusader/Man of Steel showdown will be released March 25, 2016 instead, EW has confirmed.
Warner Bros. has acquired the feature film rights to Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winner The Goldfinch, with Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment and Nina Jacobson’s Color Force set to produce the adaptation, EW confirmed Monday.
The Goldfinch tells the story of Theo Decker, whose mother is killed in the bombing of a New York museum. Abandoned by his father, Decker is taken in by a wealthy family. The epic, post-traumatic tale reveals the nearly two-decade aftermath of those events, anchored by Decker’s attachment to the piece of art (Dutch master Carel Fabritius’ “The Goldfinch”) he walked out of the devastated museum with years ago.
Clocking in at nearly 800 pages, the book has nevertheless been on the New York Times bestseller list for 39 weeks and was considered a hot property for the big-screen treatment. Warner Bros. also has the rights to Tartt’s first novel, The Secret History, which they acquired years ago. That adaptation has yet to make it to the screen, though.
Warner Bros. Pictures is putting together the pieces for the next installment in the Lego franchise.
The animated 3-D action-adventure is inspired by the popular ninja line of Lego building sets and minifigures. The characters previously starred in Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, an animated series on Cartoon Network, and the first Lego film. READ FULL STORY
Amanda Seyfried is taking a trip to Neverland.
The actress will be joining Warner Bros.’ as-yet-untitled Peter Pan adaptation, directed by Joe Wright. The adventure re-imagines the origin stories of Peter, Hook, Tiger Lily, and the other characters in J.M. Barrie’s classic fairy tale.
Fantastic Beasts come in threes.
The Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released by Warner Bros. as a trilogy of “megamovies,” The New York Times reports in its profile on the studio’s CEO, Kevin Tsujihara. Based on the Hogwarts textbook written by Potter author J.K. Rowling, the new franchise is an extension of her extraordinarily realized wizarding world. The films will follow magizoologist Newt Scamander and start in New York approximately seven decades before Harry Potter’s own adventures.
According to Rowling herself, Tsujihara is responsible for convincing the author to dive back into the Potterverse. READ FULL STORY
