DT s entertainment show, Between the Streams, is your guide to all of the hottest, most important, and of course dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was.
Sure, there s the possibly disastrous Warcraft film, the critically panned Angry Birds film which opens this weekend , and you may have even seen some pretty intriguing trailers for Michael Fassbender s new Assassin s Creed movie.
While Angry Birds was a big stretch, it seems nearly impossible to make an actual film about falling blocks, but don t tell that to Chinese media exec Bruno Wu and producer Larry Kasanoff of True Lies fame , who are said to be pitching an $80 million joint venture about the hit game of old.
The icing on the cake is director/writer Shane Black, who has created some of the best action films and buddy flicks in the genre, from the Lethal Weapon franchise to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
In other words, there will be no movie magic to bring Schwarzenegger s iconic original character back to the franchise in his youth via CGI.
Other topics this week vary from Harley Quinn s own DC Comics spinoff film, to a Star Wars film hoax, to Daniel Craig s stepping down as Bond for a possible ascent to the throne by Mr. Tom Hiddleston, aka Loki himself.
