Riddick Three In The Works

David Twohy, writer and director of first two Riddick movies and Vin Diesel are reteaming for a third Riddick picture.

Plot details are being kept under wraps. But insiders say the third outing will hew closer in tone to the cult hit "Pitch Black" and will focus on the character of Riddick as opposed to the universe he inhabits… (via Variety)

Rapunzel Now Tangled

Walt Disney Animation Studio’s renamed their 2010 release Rapunzel to Tangled. I’m glad to see that they are going for a new name.  The waters are getting too muddied with multiple movies out with the same name and little else in common.

I think if your going to do a fresh smart take on a story why not give it a new name and allow it to stand on it’s own.  This is a nice change and I hope a new pattern in movie naming convention
