Film Review: ‘Den of Thieves’

Film Review: ‘Den of Thieves’
Ambition isn’t a bad quality to see in a January movie. The simplest thing to call “Den of Thieves” would be a heist thriller, but it’s a relatively elaborate one, an underworld action drama that sprawls and digresses and for a while, at least, appears to have something on its mind. The movie is set in Los Angeles, which it presents as the bank-robbery capital of the Western world, and the director, Christian Gudegast, shoots the city’s endless freeway maze with a synth-pop moodiness that’s flagrantly evocative of Michael Mann.

As it turns out, the existential drive-by atmosphere of “Den of Thieves” isn’t even the most Mann-ish thing about it. The film coasts along on parallel narrative tracks, zeroing in on a team of renegade cops, led by Gerard Butler as a sensitive bruiser, as well as a crew of robbers who are planning to break into the L.A. branch

‘SNL’ Highlights: Oprah & Stedman, A Dog Head Guy And Captain Hook’s Reckoning

Oprah for President – or not. Captain Hook’s young-boy pirate gang in the age of Bryan Singer jokes. And a Dog Head Guy. Last night’s Saturday Night Live struck a well-edged balance between the topical and the silly, with a game Sam Rockwell showing the chops to go either way (at one point getting in character a bit too much). First the topical. Rockwell didn’t do Weekend Update, but the regular cast didn’t really need him, with anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che handling…

X-Men: Kitty Pryde movie in development

David Crow Jan 10, 2018

20th Century Fox and Deadpool director are developing a Kitty Pryde movie in the studio's X-Men universe.

Whatever may or may not happen when the Disney-Fox deal concludes its long regulatory review process, it appears to matter little to the development side of 20th Century Fox, which seems to be proceeding with business as usual, including in the development of yet another X-Men spinoff, this one starring Kitty Pryde, aka Shadowcat. Further, in news that should intrigue fans, the project - which would still be in its early stages - has Deadpool’s Tim Miller attached as a potential director.

Indeed, the news comes via Collider, which reports that Miller has been developing a Kitty Pryde movie at Fox for some time as producer, and is leaving the door open to also direct the film. This might come as a surprise to some fans who are

Bryan Singer’s executive producer credit on Marvel’s The Gifted under review, steps down from Legion

Earlier this week it was announced that Fox has given a renewal to its Marvel series The Gifted, with the network’s press release seemingly revealing that Bryan Singer will remain attached as an executive producer for season two, despite allegations of sexual misconduct and assault circling the filmmaker.

Well, it appears that may not be the case after all, as Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn has spoke to Deadline about the situation, playing down Singer’s involvement and revealing that his position is under review.

“As part of his deal for directing the pilot, he is an executive producer on the series,” said Thorn. “Truthfully, after he shot the pilot, he went and did a movie and had little to no involvement day-to-day in Season 1. But we take all the allegations very seriously, and we’re looking into it for Season 2. Right now we have a lot of time before it premieres,

Bryan Singer Removed as Executive Producer on Legion and Possibly The Gifted

After Bryan Singer was fired from the Queen Biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and the rape accusations were made against him, it's not surprising to hear that he is starting to be removed from other productions.

According to Deadline, Bryan Singer has been removed as an executive producer on the X-Men series Legion. According to the report, this was at the request of Singer. An inside source said:

“Bryan asked to take his name off the show, so we have done that."

Apparently, he didn't have much to do with the show anyway. Series creator Noah Hawley said:

“Very early on in the conception of the show, I met him a couple of times. He was interested in directing the pilot, but once I stepped in to direct, I haven’t spoken to him since that moment. Really, he was a name on the screen.”

So it doesn't seem as if he'll be missed.

Bryan Singer Removed As Executive Producer On Legion Season 2

Bryan Singer isn’t having a great couple of months. Not only was he unceremoniously kicked off the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, but was then caught up in the Hollywood sexual misconduct controversy when he was accused in a lawsuit of assaulting a teenager during a 2003 yacht party. Perhaps conscious that his name is a liability right now, he’s approached FX and asked for his Executive Producer credit to be removed from season 2 of Noah Hawley’s Legion.

The news comes from Hawley himself, who told Deadline at a recent panel for the upcoming second season that “Bryan asked to take his name off the show, so we have done that.”

In all fairness, despite his Executive Producer credit, Singer has really had little to do with Legion, which despite nominally taking place in his X-Universe, remains disconnected from the blockbusting mutant exploits of the movies. As Hawley

The X-Men Series The Gifted Has Officially Been Renewed For Season 2

I've actually really enjoyed the Marvel X-Men-inspired series The Gifted. Fox seems to be happy with how it's doing in the ratings because they have officially confirmed that it will be coming back for a second season.

This is great! I'm happy that we will get to see the story continue with these characters. The thirteen episode first season isn't over yet. There will be a two-hour finale set for January 15th.

I wasn't sure what would happen with this show, especially since Disney bought Fox, but it doesn't look like that is going to affect the series... yet. Hopefully, the series will have a long life... if it continues to stay good. 

The Gifted is produced by Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory, and the second season will be a part of the 2018-19 release season.

Fox Renews The Gifted For A Second Season

Despite being a lifelong fan of the X-Men, I must confess that I had some reservations heading into the series premiere of The Gifted. To put it mildly, I wondered if such an endeavor could be capably handled on a major network, especially considering that its roster was made up by mostly D-list characters. Thankfully, my worries were put to bed as Bryan Singer, Matt Nix and the rest of the crew proved that this franchise has so much depth that it makes failure difficult.

From the get-go, this family-centered superhero series proved to be a success in the ratings department, but that didn’t mean doubt wasn’t cast over its future. In other words, Disney’s recent acquisition of Fox forced many to wonder as to whether The Gifted‘s sensibilities aligned with the Mouse House’s agenda for Marvel as a whole. Don’t forget that when

The Mutant revolution will continue to fight equality on season 2 of The Gifted

Created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) The Gifted has been a breath of fresh air for the X-Men Universe. However with the merger of 20th Century Fox and Disney, the future of the show has been up in the air. What would happen to the Mutant Underground that has been fighting for Mutant rights all season? Until today the future was still in questions. However, Fox has announced that they have ordered a second season of The Gifted.

The Gifted had strong ties to the Fox X-Men Universe with the pilot being directed by original X-Men helmer Bryan Singer, as well as it's producers Lauren Shuler Donner, and Simon Kinberg, with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory working on the project. Being the second Mutant televison to hit the small screen, after Legion with hit early 2017 to high praise.
