I'm usually not one to knock the reboot craze... after all, I did title my 2004 Saturday Action Theatre EP "Remakes and Sequels." Nostalgia is powerful, and I've watched and enjoyed many revamped favorites of yesteryear, but when CBS unleashed their first-look at their updated version of MAGNUM P.I. -  honestly, I fully expected to hate it. I was really just bummed when I found out that Thomas Magnum wouldn't be rockin' the iconic Tom Selleck mustache, but having seen the extended preview, I'm ready to tune in this fall. There's some changes in things, but the Ferrari is back (several, actually - though they seem to like wrecking them) as is the colorful Island Hopper helicopter and that signature theme song. Check this out...

In 2019, Star Wars Celebration will return and it's celebrating its 20th Anniversary right here in my home town of Chicago! That's right, ReedPop (the folks behind the fantastic C2E2) and Lucasfilm will bring Star Wars Celebration to McCormick place April 11-15, 2019.  The full website and details will be coming soon, with tickets going on-sale June 5, 2018 at noon CST. The announcement was made on this week's installment of The Star Wars Show, and you can bet I will be spending quite a bit of time in the City proper come next April.  In the meantime, check this out...

I get pulled in by a great biopic, love films rooted in musical history and particularly enjoy those set in the 70s and 80s. Put all of those things together and you've set the stage for the long-awaited Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.

Crank it up and watch it below!

It's been said that "life finds a way," and in 2019 it's going to be evolving... at least in terms of Universal Studios Hollywood and their famed Jurassic Park - The Ride. Announced today, the all-new Jurassic World Ride will be coming to the park next year, drawing from favorite elements of the original ride, but in a next-generation form - a thrill ride that will be "a fully reimagined iteration of the ground-breaking adventure, elevating every facet of the experience. With the introduction of never-before-seen dinosaurs, enhanced storytelling, lush scenic design, an entirely new color scheme and uncompromised state-of the art technology, the ride will capture elements never experienced within a theme park." Now, the "Countdown to Extinction" has begun as guests from around the world are invited to experience the ride before its transformation. Jurassic Park - The Ride will have its finale on September 3, 2018. Check out a teaser below!

Nostalgia is a serious thing right now, and when it's done right, the way to move forward into the future is by providing a link to the past. From 20th Century Fox, the PREDATOR franchise is being rebooted, and in this first trailer audiences are getting a look at a very different movie than the ones that have preceded it. THE PREDATOR finds a suburban boy unknowingly luring the intergalactic hunters back to earth in a scene that takes me right back to a simpler time - a realm of imagination and wonder much like that seen in films like the Goonies or Monster Squad. The latter was a 1987 collaboration between Shane Black and Fred Dekker, and for THE PREDATOR they're working together again, co-writing the screenplay and with Black (Lethal Weapon) at the helm. Take a look...

My wife asked me not to be a jerk about this, but there is no way I can let this one slide by. There are some properties out there where you have to just shake your head and wonder how their respective owners can keep running them into the ground, and Scooby-Doo is one of those. What makes it especially painful is that Warner Bros. is allowing a cherished franchise that's delighted millions of families for the past 50 years (2019 will mark the anniversary) to be marred by a string of sub-par spin-offs and re-imaginings. The 2002 live-action Scooby-Doo and its 2004 sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed were both written by a pre-Guardians of the Galaxy James Gunn and both were pretty entertaining and well-received. Then there was the excellent Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated  that ran from 2010-2013 - a series that served as a perfect entry to Scooby-Doo for my own daughters. And then the turn happened. A pair of not-great live-action "prequel" TV movies paired with the bizarre Family Guy-style animation of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! would be followed by the announcement of a live-action Daphne & Velma movie. With that film hitting Blu-ray and DVD on May 22, 2018, the cast is starting to do press this week, and I feel for all parties involved when the interviews start rolling. The trailer that was released last month looks absolutely terrible, and the Blu-ray art is a horrible use of Photoshop in which the faces of the actresses look awkwardly placed atop equally awkward poses. See for yourself...

After two seasons on ABC, Quantico found itself in a position where reinvention was the perfect way to both move the series forward and gain new audiences in the process. Despite being well-received by both viewers and critics, many (like myself) had yet to experience the show, and as time went on, the chance for that to happen became less and less likely. During my recent visit to Los Angeles, I had the opportunity to meet with new showrunner Michael Seitzman (Code Black) and a new addition to the cast - Academy Award Winner Marlee Matlin - for a discussion about taking the series in a new direction (and a three year time jump) for season three.

The road to get here was an unusual one - perhaps as bumpy as a trip through an asteroid field while chased by Imperial TIE Fighters - but May 25th will mark the release of Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story, and I'm excited. I think I'm actually more pumped for this one than I was for Rogue One, and I loved that film. What's at play here is the vibe, and the vibe is fun. A large bringer of fun, Lando Calrissian. With that in mind, actor Donald Glover is giving you as look inside the Millennium Falcon - Lando's Falcon - from an era before it became known as a "piece of junk." Seeing this, I really wish it was possible to get a Corellian Freighter to park in the driveway. You could comfortably live in this thing. Take a look...
