It's been one of the longest cliffhangers in recent Hollywood memory, and the other side finally blinked - again.
With so many movies being remade and rebooted, you probably can't help asking yourself: "Didn't I see this movie ten years ago?"
Lord of the Rings proved Hollywood can deliver an epic story in several parts with loyal fans coming back every year.
Along with John Carter, the other big cliffhanger at the box office this year will be Battleship, the big action film loosely based on the Milton Bradley board game.
It was quite a cliffhanger last year when the big screen adaption of The Dark Tower wound up in limbo at Universal.
Ditching the Dark Tower series. Turning down Guillermo Del Toro's dream project in 3D. Cowboys and Aliens going in the toilet. Theater revolts over Tower Heist and yet even more Fast and Furious movies green lit.
Ron Howard’s planned adaptation of The Dark Tower was one of the most closely watched cliffhangers in Hollywood history, along with the recent budget battle over The Lone Ranger.
Although The Dark Tower was ultimately turned down by Universal, it seems as if the key screenwriter and director behind the Harry Potter movies are planning to make The Stand their next big film - with a little help from Warner Bros.
With many bemoaning the lack of original ideas in Hollywood, the upcoming board game adaptation of Battleship has become somewhat of a whipping boy amongst film geeks.
We've been following the waiting game at Universal with The Dark Tower series, which was going to be a three part movie and TV series directed by Ron Howard.
Looking at YouTube the other day, where I spend much of my time, I came across something pretty interesting and fun.
