Transmission Films has released a teaser trailer for Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan, an upcoming Vietnam drama.

Ridley Scott is set to executive produce a miniseries adaptation of 3001: The Final Odyssey by author Arthur C. Clarke for Syfy.
3001 is the final entry of the “Space Odyssey” series, which began with 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both the 2001 novel and film were developed at the same time—the former written by Clarke and the latter directed by Stanley Kubrick and written by Clarke and Kubrick, with both being released in 1968.
Check out this lenticular poster here below for I, Frankenstein straight from the Cannes film festival, which provides the first look at the upcoming film. From the creators of the supernatural Underworld series, I, Frankenstein is written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux.
Starring Aaron Eckhart as Frankenstein’s monster, I, Frankenstein pits gargoyles and demons against each other in the “ultimate battle for immortality.” The film also stars Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Yvonne Strahovski.
A movie adaptation of the massively popular Microsoft video game franchise, Halo, has been talked about for a good five or so years now. At one point it was rolling forward steadily with Neil Blomkamp (before anyone had a clue who he was) attached to direct and Peter Jackson set to produce. At the time, things weren’t quite what they are now and a rising budget forced backers Universal and Fox to pull out and everything to fall apart around the project.
Little did they know at the time, that soon it would be much easier to do big budget effects with less cost. And in a cruel twist of ironic fate, it was Jackson and Blomkamp who left Halo and went on to make a little movie called District 9 on a minor $30 million budget, which received critical praise, over $210 million at the box office, and even a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards. Knowing this knowledge, we probably would already have at least one Halo movie, and judging by how popular the games are, more would be on the way.
