When Beauty and the Beast started smashing trailer view records, it didn't take Disney long to realize that it had another gargantuan hit on its hands. And the first tracking records now indicate that the live-action adaptation of the classic 90s cartoon will bring booming business to the early 2017 box office. It stands to be one of the biggest hits of the year with ten months still left to go following its release.
The movie, which stars Emma Watson as Belle, is tracking for a massive $120 million opening according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film will be in theaters on March 17, with the tracking numbers coming courtesy of pre-release surveys. Disney insiders are being more cautious with that high number, and don't want to step on their own toes. They are downplaying the monster potential of this Beauty and her Beast, claiming it will open just north of $100 million.
THR is reporting that Sam Raimi has signed on to direct a mystery thriller based around the Bermuda Triangle, which is being produced by Skydance Productions and has been written by Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time).
The project is one of three competing Bermuda Triangle projects in development, with films also in the works at Warner Bros. and Universal. Plot details for all three are being kept closely under wraps, particularly to avoid giving away who or what is behind the Triangle’s mysterious disappearances.
Raimi hasn’t directed a film since 2013’s Oz the Great and Powerful, although he has circled several over the past year, including the tornado action adventure Stormfall, an adaptation of the non-fiction novel The Next 100 Years titled World War 3, and a remake of the French crime drama A Prophet.

Continuing his “auteurist TV here, prestige picture there” pattern, Cary Fukunaga may follow Beasts of No Nation and forthcoming Netflix series Maniac with a recounting of the Hiroshima bombing — an ambitious-sounding project in no small part because it’s taken after such a comprehensive piece of material. Per Deadline, he’s conspiring with scribe Hossein Amini (Drive) for an adaptation of Stephen Walker’s Shockwave: Countdown to Hiroshima, likely with a title reduced to Shockwave, and Universal would be footing the bill.
Walker’s non-fiction text covers a lot of ground, spanning the viewpoints of soldiers on either side, Japanese civilians affected to the blast, members of the Manhattan Project, President Truman in the weeks leading up to the Enola Gay’s flight, and those connected to these parties. How to fit that into a standard-length project and do everybody justice? I don’t know, but then again, I’m »

According to Variety, Sam Raimi is “in talks” to “possibly direct” an untitled mystery thriller about the Bermuda Triangle, a mysterious patch of ocean in the Caribbean where regular ship and airplane disappearances are thrillingly embellished or fabricated. No plot details have been announced, so all we know is that it will have something to do with the Bermuda Triangle, but that and Raimi’s involvement are enough to make this seem interesting already. No studio is currently attached, but production company Skydance has been developing this project since 2013. Also, Variety notes that Universal and Warner Bros. both have their own separate Bermuda Triangle films in development, so it seems like this little chunk of the planet is this year’s Robin Hood or Frankenstein—as in, it’s the thing everybody’s making a movie about. »

Horror legend Sam Raimi has signed on to direct a new Bermuda Triangle mystery thriller project for Skydance Productions. The thriller is actually one of three separate films currently in development about the mysterious Bermuda Triangle, with one set up at Universal and the other being worked on at Warner Bros. No plot details have been given for any of these projects, with each studio worried about their own takes getting leaked.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the project's plot details are being kept a secret so much that Sam Raimi had to visit the Skydance Productions offices just to read the script. While the story details are being kept under wraps, it was revealed that the script itself was written by the writing team of Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, whose writing credits include The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and the Netflix series Narcos. »

According to THR, Raimi is in discussions to direct a "mystery thriller" about the Bermuda Triangle for Skydance Productions. Covering a vast area of the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico, the Bermuda Triangle has long been a real life setting for bizarre disappearances of planes and ships. The mysteries of that stretch of sea are not only of interest to Skydance—Universal and Warner Bros. are also putting together projects based on the Bermuda Triangle.
Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (Narcos, The Great Wall, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Uninvited) penned the script for Skydance's Bermuda Triangle movie, with an earlier draft written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (2009's Friday the 13th, new »

The other two, according to The Hollywood Reporter, have set up shop across Universal and Warner Bros., though with Raimi now in talks to helm the mystery thriller, it seems Skydance’s movie is the furthest along even at this early stage in development.
Centering on the infamous stretch of sea between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, the Bermuda Triangle (Aka the Devil’s Triangle) has a long history of aircraft and ships venturing into its waters, only to disappear without a trace. Estimations are all over the place, and ever since the phrase Bermuda Triangle was first coined in 1964, that relatively small channel in the North Atlantic has become something of a worldwide phenomenon among conspiracy theorists, with potential »

Sam Raimi is in no big rush to make his next movie, though he’s certainly been stacking up quite a few options. Perhaps the most high profile is a Hollywood redo of Jacques Audiard‘s intense “A Prophet,” while on the blockbuster front he’s taken a look at “World War 3” and the tornado heist movie “Stormfall.” Well, Raimi is putting another big project into the mix.

Ash Vs Evil Dead season 3 is definitely happening, baby! But a new direction for Ash and the gang is in store...
It's official! Ash Vs Evil Dead season 3 will happen on the Starz network (was there ever any doubt?) so you can expect a whole new season of wise-crackin' Deadite-slayin' insanity from Ashley J. Williams and pals later this year.
The announcement was made at New York Comic Con, and Bruce Campbell himself has also since teased to EW that season 3 will take an epic turn for Ash.
“I can’t say much because we’re going to try and do some crazy shit,” Campbell said. “But we’re probably going to crack more into Ash’s big picture story. »
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has propelled the Marvel brand forward for the last decade or so, and they were able to do so without the help of everyone's favorite web slinger until very recently. It wasn't until Tom Holland showed up as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War last year that the character was featured in an McU movie. As has always been the case on screen, Spidey was slinging webs from his wrists. But what if Spider-Man were anatomically correct? Well, that would mean Spider-Man would be shooting webs from his butt and now, like it or not, we know what that would look like.
Corridor Digital recently uploaded a new video to their YouTube channel that features a completely different take on Spider-Man. In the video, we see a very familiar tale of a nerdy young guy who gets bit by a radioactive spider and is given superhuman abilities. »
