Marvel Characters – comics compared to movies

25 July 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Legions of Gotham | See recent Legions of Gotham news »

When it comes to films, especially action-packed Hollywood blockbusters, many of us don’t really mind if every little detail is not correct, as long as we leave being satisfied and entertained by what we have just witnessed. For some however, this is not the case. Many Marvel comic books fans get upset and annoyed by the changes that are made to their favourite superhero character when they take to the silver screen. With a whole host of Marvel-themed games on site, Gala Casino have investigated some of the major differences that these die-hard comic book fans are talking about…

 

 

The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk is one of the most famous Marvel characters, as the big green monster has had numerous films, comics and TV shows made about him. But surprisingly, The Hulk wasn’t actually meant to be green, he was meant to be grey. In the first »

Hot town, "scummer" in the city — Peter Travers is back once again to count down the worst movies of the month, and July was particularly rife with garbage. Our trusty critic says he could've tossed 25 movies into the Scum Bucket, but he's gracious enough to leave us with only 10.

Mark Ruffalo on the foe Hulk needs for a stand-alone movie

21 July 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Ever since The Avengers debuted two years ago, fans have been demanding: When is Mark Ruffalo going to get a stand-alone movie as the Hulk?

With Marvel Studios recently announcing a slate of seven untitled movies that spans into 2019, it’s possible we may get an answer to the question at Comic-Con this week.

If a Hulk movie isn’t among them, the answer is probably: Never. At least, not with Ruffalo in the lead, since he has been open about the fact that his own age, 46, starts to become a problem for a superhero—especially if we’re looking »

Kevin Feige Explains Why ‘Planet Hulk’ is Not The Next Step

21 July 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After two mildly successful cinematic outings in the form of Ang Lee’s Hulk (starring Eric Bana) and Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk (featuring Edward Norton), Marvel’s green rage monster seems to finally have some undeniable momentum, largely thanks to Mark Ruffalo’s well-received portrayal of Bruce Banner in The Avengers. Due to his bromantic chemistry with Tony Stark and the smashing of a “puny god,” the character was viewed as one of the film’s highlights.

With newfound interest in the Hulk, there are many clamoring for a new solo film which would give Ruffalo a chance to carry an outing on his own (the actor has even said the Click to continue reading Kevin Feige Explains Why ‘Planet Hulk’ is Not The Next Step

"Apes" Nabs $73M, "Transformers" Tops 2014

13 July 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Fox's acclaimed sequel "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" beat expectations to pull in an estimated $73 million debut at the domestic box office this weekend. That's well ahead of the $54.8 million debut of its predecessor "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" back in 2011.

The film also opened in 26 international territories over the weekend where it managed $31.1 million. However, much of the world will not be getting it until next weekend due to various markets holding off the film until after the World Cup. The film is Fox's third straight strong debut in a row this Summer following excellent starts for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "The Fault in Our Stars".

Meanwhile, with the help of a robust result in global markets - especially China - "Transformers: Age of Extinction" has become the biggest film of the year so far with a whopping $752 million in global revenue, pushing »

Eric Bana Talks Deliver Us From Evil, the Origins of the Script, Exorcism Movies, Why He Can’t do a TV Series in America, and More

12 July 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now in theaters, is Deliver Us From Evil, a supernatural crime thriller that writer/director Scott Derrickson describes, “Serpico meets The Exorcist.”  While this may seem like the most unlikely pairing since Abbot and Costello first encountered The Wolfman, it’s actually a pretty good assessment of the film’s tone and style.  The Jerry Bruckheimer production tells the very-loosely-based-on-fact story of Ralph Sarchie, (Eric Bana) a hardboiled Police Sargent from the Bronx who, - with the help of a knife-wielding partner (Joel McHale) and the guidance of a Priest (Edgar Ramirez) carrying a dark past of his own - slowly discovers that the perp in his latest murder investigation just might be Satan himself.  As the walls close in and the bodies pile up, Sarchie and his cohorts race against time to find the culprit and protect his own family (Oliver Munn).

‘Deliver Us From Evil’ Review

8 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Eric Bana, Joel McHale, Édgar Ramírez, Olivia MunnChris Coy, Dorian Missick, Sean Harris, Mike Houston, Lulu Wilson | Written by Scott Derrickson, Paul Harris Boardman | Directed by Scott Derrickson

Sometimes it can be easy to dismiss a horror film simply based on the premise. By now we have seen nearly every type or person and inanimate object possessed by some sort of demon or demonic presence. However, all genres are just as guilty of sticking with stereotypical tropes. The key is how those tropes are executed.   Director Scott Derrickson’s latest film Deliver Us From Evil  is far from groundbreaking, but it at least subverts expectations enough to create something worth watching.

In many ways Deliver Us From Evil  is a crime drama with a few occasional supernatural elements. Eric Bana plays Sarchie, a veteran police officer with a special talent for solving disturbing crimes. His partner, played by »

Box Office: Lessons From a Weak July 4th Weekend

7 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

1. Somebody really likes "Transformers." For a smash hit film series, Michael Bay's giant-robot franchise gets awfully little love, at least in public. It's like porn; everyone claims to find it loathsome, but in secret, someone is watching it and making it a huge success. Last week, of course, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" cruised easily to No. 1 because no other wide release film was willing to challenge it. This weekend, it faced three new wide release challengers and still came out far ahead of all of them. It lost 64 percent of last week's business and still grossed an estimated $36.4 million, more than $15 million ahead of its nearest rival, and enough for a ten-day total of $174.7 million. If everyone hates these movies so much, who are the 22 million people who've already paid good money to see the fourth installment? Show of hands, please, and don't be shy.

2. Eric Bana is not a movie star. »

Transformers: Age of Extinction Still Dominating at Box Office

7 July 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" remained at the top spot at the domestic box office by adding another $36 million to bring its worldwide total to $575 million in just the first twelve days. And that's without being released in Latin America and most European countries yet. Out of the new releases, Melissa McCarthy's R-rated comedy "Tammy" performed worse than expected, but was still able to take second place with $33 million on a budget of only $20 million. That's still less than McCarthy's "The Heat" ($39 million) and "Identity Thief" ($34.6 million). The new comedy, which is a directorial debut of McCarthy's husband Ben Falcone, has a 23% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Eric Bana's "Deliver Us From Evil" horror film landed in third place with $15 million, which is less than the expected $20 million. The movie, which has a 32% fresh rating, cost $30 million to make, which means that it will likely become profitable. Meanwhile, Disney's "Earth to Echo »

Last week, we took a look at the career of Aussie actor Eric Bana, who first made a splash playing one of the screen's great psychopaths in Chopper. This week's guy knows a thing or two about that.... Gary Oldman     Ok, so Gary Oldman got himself into a bit of trouble a few weeks ago by going off-the-cuff in his Playboy interview. So what? The fact remains, Oldman is one of the very best actors of his generation. No matter the film, be it a »

'Transformers' Tops Weak Fourth Of July Box Office

6 July 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While all films had disappointing returns this holiday weekend, 'Transformers' trounced all three newcomers.

Transformers: Age Of Extinction managed to dominate the holiday box office, but only grossed $36.4 million in what turned out to be a very disappointing Fourth of July weekend for new movies.

Transformers' domestic earnings amounted to a 63.6% drop from last weekend, and brought its U.S. gross to $174.7 million, based off a $210 million budget. However, the film has been simply obliterating the overseas markets, where it has already earned an additional $400.9 million for a staggering $575.6 million in worldwide sales.

The second and third place spots on the box office top 10 were home to two of the weekend's three newcomers, with the Melissa McCarthy comedy Tammy raking in $21.1 million and the Eric Bana-led horror film Deliver Us From Evil in a distant third with $9.5 million.

Transformers Stays on Top Over Slow Weekend

6 July 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The fourth Transformers installation remained on top of a sluggish holiday weekend, bringing in $36.4 million. The Michael Bay movie beat Melissa McCarthy's Tammy, which fell short of industry expectations with $21.2 million. Eric Bana's horror flick, Deliver Us From Evil bowed at $9.5 million, narrowly edging out 22 Jump Street at $9.4 million. How to Train Your Dragon 2 rounded out the top five with $8.75 million. Another new release, Earth to Echo, came in at sixth with $8.25 million. Overall the weekend marks a 43.4 percent drop from last year's July 4th weekend when Despicable Me 2 brought in over $86 million, causing some industry hand-wringing. Time for Chris Pratt/Guardians of the Galaxy to save the day! »

‘Deliver Us from Evil’ promises scares, but doesn’t deliver

Deliver Us from Evil

Written by Scott Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman

Directed by Scott Derrickson

USA, 2014

The idea of demonic possession has terrified people around the world for hundreds of years. The idea that something not of this world is wearing your skin, living your life, while you’re nothing but a helpless passenger in your own skin, is nothing short of a veritable nightmare. Although a topic of religious study for a plethora of faiths, demonic possession has always been a favourite for Hollywood films. So it’s always nice when a movie can take the time-tested tropes and turn out something fresh. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case with Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil.

The film stars Eric Bana as New York police officer Ralph Sarchie, who finds himself uncovering an insidious demonic plan. A curse that’s destroyed the lives of three soldiers from the Middle East, »

Box office: 'Transformers 4' tops Fourth of July Friday with $10 million

5 July 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Audiences celebrated America's independence by watching it be destroyed in "Transformers: Age of Extinction," which ruled the box office in its second Friday, earning $10.6 million.  So far, the long holiday he weekend is fairly slow, with several newcomers posting lukewarm debuts.  "Extinction" has earned a formidable $148 million so far, and will have no trouble crossing the $150 million mark today, and should pass the magical $200 million mark in a few days.  The series' box office high point came in 2009, when "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" brought in a domestic total of $402.1 million. Directed by Michael Bay, "Extinction" stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, and Stanley Tucci. The Warner Bros. comedy "Tammy," starring Melissa McCarthy, came in second place, earning $6.4 million in its first Friday. It opened on Wednesday July 2 and has so far earned $18.1 million. DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon 2" is having a bit of a »

Box office update: 'Transformers 4' crushes 'Tammy,' 'Earth to Echo'

5 July 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Tammy is no match for the Transformers. The Melissa McCarthy comedy had a slight shot at snagging the top spot over the holiday, but the Autobots managed to stave off extinction for one more week — at least till the Apes take over next weekend.

Michael Bay’s fourth installment in the toy-based franchise pulled in an estimated $10.6 million Friday, while the R-rated Tammy (C+ Cinema Score) took in $6.44 million from 3,400 theaters. In other words, there were no box office fireworks this weekend.

This isn’t a great showing for McCarthy. Poor reviews and a rotten C+ Cinema Score do not »
