EditFest: 'Star Wars' Editor Urges More Diverse Stories in Film

12 August 2017 5:33 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Richard Chew — an Oscar winner for editing 1977’s Star Wars with Paul Hirsch and Marcia Lucas — believes Hollywood still has “a long way to go” in telling more diverse stories.

Speaking in a featured conversation Saturday at American Cinema Editors' EditFest L.A., the veteran editor, who was born in Los Angeles to Chinese immigrant parents and studied Law at Harvard, said an inspiration for getting into film was “to be able to tell the story of people that the majority might feel are ‘the others.’ I always hated the notion of the ‘they.’ I wanted to work in »

Tom Cruise Blamed for The Mummy Tanking at the Box Office

15 June 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal launched its new Dark Universe franchise with The Mummy reboot, which boasted the star-power of Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe in a world where they will bring several iconic monsters and creatures back to life, in present day. The studio didn't quite get the results it was looking for at the domestic box office, with a lackluster debut of $31.3 million, debuting in a distant second place to Wonder Woman ($58.5 million) in its second weekend. The movie was also a dud with critics, with a paltry 16% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with many wondering how a movie with so much talent behind and in front of the camera, could fail so badly. A new report claims that a majority of the blame should be placed on Tom Cruise's shoulders, due to the immense amount of creative control he had on the project.

Reports say Tom Cruise had too much control over The Mummy, and is to blame for its failings

15 June 2017 1:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Mummy was supposed to be the launching pad for Universal’s Dark Universe, a inter-connected world that brought together the classic Monsters from the studio’s history. However a trashing by the press [read our reviews here and here, although Luke Owen loved it on the Flickering Myth Podcast] and a tepid domestic opening of $32 million (it did fare much better overseas) has cast some doubt over the proposed cinematic universe.

In May, Universal released an image of their Dark Universe featuring Tom CruiseSofia Boutella (Ahmanet), Russell Crowe (Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde), Javier Bardem (Frankenstein’s Monster) and Johnny Depp (The Invisible Man) and reports suggest the studio still wants Angelina Jolie to play The Bride of Frankenstein in the 2019 movie directed by Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast), and previous reports say they want Scarlett Johansson for Creature From the Black Lagoon and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for The Wolf Man. But those actors require big paycheques – and that could be Universal’s downfall. »

Inside ‘The Mummy’s’ Troubles: Tom Cruise Had Excessive Control (Exclusive)

14 June 2017 4:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There were few signs that a major blockbuster was about to premiere when “The Mummy” rolled into Manhattan last week. The marquee of the AMC Loews Lincoln Square Theatres had gone blank. The carpet was totally covered with black plastic. Security only let guests past barricades after quizzing them about what they were there to see, and everybody had to walk through two imposing metal detectors.

Inside the theater, Tom Cruise was jubilant, as he stood in front of the crowd. “Hey y’all,” said the 54-year-old actor. He introduced Alex Kurtzman, the film’s director, as well as the cast members, who stood quietly as Cruise delivered a 10-minute improvised speech. “Movies aren’t made by single people,” he said. “It’s a team effort.”

But in the case of “The Mummy,” one person–Cruise–had an excessive amount of control, according to several people interviewed. The reboot of »
