20th Century Fox Developing Film Version Of Monty Python’s ‘Spamalot’

Published

on

The Holy Grail. The Life Of Brian. The Meaning Of Life.

Widely regarded comedy classics birthed by the sextet of John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin and Terry Jones. Otherwise known as Monty Python.

Well. If you were always looking on the bright side of life and hoping for another film offering of their work. You are in luck, as 20th Century Fox have confirmed that they will be bringing ‘Spamalot’ to the big screen.

A musical that heavily parodies ‘The Holy Grail’, the original Broadway production back in 2005 directed by the late Mike Nichols (The Birdcage) was a smash, garnering 14 Tony Award nominations.

Idle will be penning the script for the film, with Casey Nicholaw set to direct. Nicholaw has been a key figure in the success of various stage musicals, including The Book Of Mormon with Trey Parker and more recently the theatre version of 2004 film Mean Girls.

Fox are looking to begin production in Spring 2019.

Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact. Super strength? Flying? He seems more concerned on how he’s meant to pee in his red suit. Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

Fantastical Debut Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Welcomes You To Atlantis

Published

on

Still reeling from the critical reception which greeted ‘Justice League’ last year. Director James Wan and leading man Jason Momoa are tasked with keeping Warner Bros’ DCEU above water this December with ‘Aquaman’ and after seeing the action-packed first footage straight from Comic-Con, they seem up for the challenge.

Billed as the origin story of the half-human half -Atlantean. We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

Published

on

Well. If you thought there wasn’t enough monster mayhem in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 effort.

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
