Shazam! is the latest entry into the DCEU and will tell the story of Billy Batson, a 14-year-old foster child who has superpowers bestowed upon him by a mysterious wizard.

Unicorn Store

After the rousing success of Captain Marvel, Brie Larson will be returning to screens in her directorial debut, Unicorn Store

The film, which is coming to Netflix, will focus on Kit, a unique art student who is kicked out of school for her out of the box (or picture frame) style. In her new job as an office temp, Kit receives a mysterious invitation from the Salesman (Samuel L. Jackson).

Pet Semetary

Pet Semetary looks to continue the success of 2019 horror movies as it follows hot on the heels of Jordan Peele’s Us.

A star-studded adaptation of the Stephen King horror novel of the same name, Pet Semetary follows Dr Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) and his family after they relocate from busy city-life to what they hope will be rural peace and quiet. Little do they know however, that their new home is close to a mysterious animal burial ground in the woods nearby.

The Hellboy franchise is the latest in a long line to get a brand spanking new reboot. 

After plans for a third film in the original Guillermo del Toro-led series fell through, studio big-wigs began work on rebooting the franchise instead.
