How to Save the Dark Universe

Harrison Abbott on how Universal can save the Dark Universe

Whilst its international take is admittedly surpassing its domestic performance by quite some way, it is still reasonable to suggest that The Mummy hasn’t been the mega-hit that Universal were hoping for. Weighed down by astonishingly clunky exposition, countless instances of tonal whiplash and a certain high profile ego to contend with (not to mention that embarrassing PR blunder with the trailer audio), the film has been the deserving subject of bad word of mouth and a relentless onslaught of critical maulings. Suffice it to say, it has been something of a rocky journey for the first instalment in the fledgling ”Dark Universe”.

In case you need catching up to speed, this Dark Universe is essentially the latest attempt to revive all of Universal’s classic movie monsters. Many efforts have been made in the past to reboot these characters, »

Johnny Depp’s Former Business Managers Allege He Had ‘Gotten Physical’ and ‘Violently Kicked’ Amber Heard

14 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Johnny Depp‘s former business managers are alleging the actor physically abused his ex-wife Amber Heard — and knowingly tried to cover it up on at least one occasion.

“Mandel was also later informed that Depp had violently kicked Heard during an incident that took place in or around 2014,” the docs add.

The Mummy Failed Due to Universal’s Bad Strategy

17 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Universal Studios is hoping that their new “Dark Universe” will be the next McU. So far, they’re off to a weak start. The Tom Cruise action flick The Mummy, which is the official beginning to the “Dark Universe”, is seriously underperforming at the box office. The movie’s poor performance highlights a major miscalculation that will continue to derail the “Dark Universe” unless Universal changes its strategy.

We all know that every studio is trying to copy the success Disney has achieved with its massively profitable McU. Warner Brothers is doing their Dceu; Sony has plans for an expanded “Spider-Verse”, as well as a possible connected film series about Robin Hood and his Merry Men; And Universal is doing their “Dark Universe”. However, as we’re seeing in the last few years, it’s not as easy to create an extended universe as it may seem.

Johnny Depp Apologizes for Donald Trump Assassination Joke

23 June 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Johnny Depp has issued an apology for a controversial comment about President Donald Trump, asking, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone,” the actor said in a statement to People on Friday.

Depp’s joke, in reference to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865, was made during an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival. “I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living,” he added at the U.K. music festival. “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”

Shortly after news broke of Depp’s comments, the White House issued a statement strongly condemning the joke and calling on others in Hollywood to speak out.

Johnny Depp Once Booted from White House Reception for Showing 'Disrespect'

23 June 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Johnny Depp's disdain for the White House runs deep ... so deep he was once corralled by Secret Service agents who refused to let him shake the President's hand. Depp, who's taking heat for his Trump assassination crack, was at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. back in January 1988 -- yeah, we know it's the '80s -- where President and Nancy Reagan held a ceremony for the fight against AIDS.

Newswire: White House officially condemns Johnny Depp as “sad”

23 June 2017 10:48 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Hastening his retreat to the mole underworld, Johnny Depp joked yesterday about killing Donald Trump, the sort of irreverent jest made by a Hollywood celebrity that is, along with Kathy Griffin and Shakespeare In The Park, currently the source of all the hate in the world. “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” Depp asked during an appearance at the Glastonbury festival, making a glib allusion to John Wilkes Booth that even Depp immediately realized would end up splattered across news stories like this one (“It’s gonna be in the press; it’ll be horrible”).

But while Depp could have predicted the backlash from conservatives who condemn all famous people advocating violence against America’s leaders except for Ted Nugent, he probably didn’t expect to receive an official condemnation from the White House. But such is the stupid world we live in now, where Trump »

Johnny Depp Blasts Trump: "When Was the Last Time an Actor Assassinated a President?"

23 June 2017 9:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

This post has been updated with new information. Johnny Depp did not mince words when talking about President Donald Trump during the Glastonbury Festival in England on Thursday. The Pirates of the Caribbean star, who was on hand for a special screening of his 2004 film The Libertine, brought up the president while addressing the crowd. "Can you bring Trump here?" he asked. The crowd began booing, to which Johnny continued, "No, no, no, you misunderstood completely. I think he needs . . . help." The actor went on to reference the 1865 assassination of Abraham Lincoln by actor John Wilkes Booth. "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?" When the audience cheered and clapped, Johnny said, "I want to clarify, I'm not an actor. I lie for a living." In response to Johnny's comments, the White House issued a statement on Friday. "President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it's sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead. I hope that some of Mr. Depp's colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official." Johnny has since apologized for the remark. "I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump," Johnny said in a statement to People. "It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone." Back in February 2016, Johnny famously portrayed Trump in a hilarious Funny or Die spoof about his book, The Art of the Deal. »
