Legendary Wins Bidding War for Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Skyscraper’

26 May 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary has won a bidding war for rights to the China-set action movie “Skyscraper” with Dwayne Johnson attached to star.

Rawson Marshall Thurber is directing from his own script. Beau Flynn is producing through his FlynnPictureCo. with Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions. Thurber will also produce.

Universal, Sony and Paramount also made bids for the project, which takes place in a massive skyscraper in China, with Legendary paying about $3 million. Details of the logline are being kept under wraps.

Universal will handle distribution of “Skyscraper” worldwide. Legendary was acquired four months ago by Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda for $3.5 billion.

Johnson and Flynn teamed on New Line’s “San Andreas,” which grossed more than $470 million worldwide, and on the two “Journey to the Center of the Earth” films.

Johnson will be seen next month with Kevin Hart in action-comedy “Central Intelligence,” which Thurber directed for New Line. Johnson recently wrapped shooting on “Baywatch” for Paramount. »

Daniel Craig & Katherine Heigl Gearing Up For Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Logan Lucky’

26 May 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Steven Soderbergh tends to count A-list types like George Clooney, Matt Damon and Channing Tatum among his roster of regular players, he’s also known for making more leftfield choices from time to time. But if you had told us that the former star of “Grey’s Anatomy” would feature in a Soderbergh joint, we would have […]

25 underappreciated family movies of the last 20 years

From Flushed Away and Hunchback to Titan A.E. and Sky High - the family movies that don't get the love they deserve...

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar. 

A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »

Space Between Us Trailer Tracks the First Human Born on Mars

25 May 2016 1:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year, sci-fi fans took an unforgettable journey to Mars with the critically-acclaimed blockbuster The Martian, which followed the plight of an astronaut (Matt Damon) stuck on the Red Planet as he tries to find a way back to Earth. This year, Stx Entertainment will return to Mars for another inspiring, but much different tale in The Space Between Us, arriving in theaters August 19. Today we have the first trailer courtesy of Youtube and the poster for this drama, that could be one of this summer's sleeper hits.

In this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonize Mars, only to discover after takeoff that one of the astronauts is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet - never revealing who the father is. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot (Asa Butterfield) - an inquisitive, »

'The Space Between Us': Get Ready For a New Killer Martian Movie

25 May 2016 11:58 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last year, the world had a hell of a time cheering for Matt Damon to get home from Mars in the Ridley Scott film, The Martian. Now, it's time to get ready for a different type of Martian flick, one that's not as based on human ingenuity as it is based on human emotion.

The Space Between Us poses many questions, though the chief among them is largely a sociological and developmental one: what would happen if a boy grew up on Mars and came back to Earth as a teenager?

Check out the official trailer for The Space Between Us below!

"In this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonize Mars, only to discover after takeoff that one of the astronauts is pregnant.

Are Movie Studios Ruining Shared Universes?

22 May 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church on whether movie studios are ruining shared universes…

In the years since the Marvel Cinematic Universe began and its massive success at the box office has come a tidal wave of news that studios seek to emulate Marvel’s idea of a shared universe for their franchises. For some studios, namely Warner Bros. with their DC Comics properties, that is to be expected, but other studios seem to be going a little too far with the shared universe concept. With so many studios set to milk this new concept for all its worth, will it instead have a negative effect and lead to the downfall of shared cinematic universes?

For companies like Marvel or WB, it makes sense for them to work on a large cinematic universe where their stable of characters interacts with one another on a near constant basis. After all, both comic publishers have had »

Green Lantern Isn't Coming to The CW Anytime Soon

20 May 2016 6:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March, it was teased that The CW's new DC Comics TV series Legends of Tomorrow will be introducing a new character from the comics in the Season 1 finale. Just a few weeks later, it was revealed that Suits star Patrick J. Adams has come aboard to play this mysterious character, who was later rumored to be both Booster Gold and Green Lantern. As it turns out, both of those reports were wrong, with the season finale, which aired last night, revealing the actor as DC hero Hourman. Just hours before the finale aired, though, executive producer Marc Guggenheim made it clear that there are no future plans for Green Lantern to appear in the DC TV universe.

Shortly after the Booster Gold rumor surfaced in March, another report claimed Patrick J. Adams is playing Alan Scott, the Earth-2 version of Green Lantern, but those reports were never confirmed. »

Cannes Launches Oscar Buzz for ‘Loving,’ Shia Labeouf and Kristen Stewart

20 May 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Cannes Film Festival isn’t just the most glamorous venue on the planet to debut a movie, with its sea of tuxedos and ballgowns on the red carpet. It also has a recent history of being an excellent platform for launching Academy Award contenders. “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Carol,” “Inside Out” and “Son of Saul” all premiered at last year’s Cannes and went to score a boatload of Oscar nominations.

But the competition at this year’s festival has been at its weakest in years — especially after such a dud as Sean Penn’s “The Last Face.” Critics were also disappointed by Nicolas Refn’s “The Neon Demon” and Xavier Dolan’s “It’s Only the End of the World” and underwhelmed by out-of-competition titles like Woody Allen’s “Café Society” and Steven Spielberg’s “The Bfg.”

Now that the dust is settling on Cannes 2016, it’s very »
