X-Men: Days of Future Past: Back on June 20, director Bryan Singer noted via social media that he and writer Simon Kinberg had agreed that if X-Men: Days of Future Past made more than $700 million at the box office worldwide, they'd each get their first tattooes.

Fox’s Jim Gianopulos Leads Studio Through Uncertain Times

19 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos doesn’t have an easy job.

It’s hard enough to pick movies that connect with audiences. Today, studio chiefs like Gianopulos must navigate a rapidly shifting landscape where consumer demands, piracy and the collapse of the DVD market, as well as increasing competition from online diversions and quality cable TV shows, are wreaking havoc on the financial underpinnings of the film business. Media companies like Fox’s parent 21st Century Fox are on a quest to grow bigger in order to compete with digital superpowers like Google and pending mergers between cable and telco giants like Comcast and Time Warner Cable, and At&T and DirecTV. Gianopulos’ uberboss, 21st Century Fox chief Rupert Murdoch, made a surprise $80 billion bid to buy Time Warner that was rejected and he subsequently withdrew. But consolidation, it seems, is coming.

Disney’s Marketing Force is with ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Oct. 13 Launch

19 August 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The marketing force is strong with “Star Wars Rebels.”

Disney will promote the Oct. 13 launch of the new animated series on Disney Xd starting Sept. 29 with a one-hour film “Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion,” available first for users of the Watch Disney Xd app.

The animated film will then premiere on Disney Channel on Oct. 3 and Disney Xd on Oct. 6 before the premiere of the “Star Wars Rebels” series on Oct. 13 on Disney Xd.

Disney is giving the show a major push across its channels around the world, making it available in 34 languages in 163 countries.

The move to offer up the “Rebels” movie first on digital devices — tablets, smartphones, computers and set-top boxes – is an interesting one, however — one that borrows from the trend by studios to release homevideo titles two weeks earlier before their discs hit traditional retail shelves through Digital HD.

Doing so will give Disney »

'Star Wars Episode VII': Sorting out the truth, rumor and speculation so far

18 August 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It is a fascinating moment to be a "Star Wars" fan. Right now, there is arguably more energy being expended on all things "Star Wars" than ever before. I remember the feeling in the early days of development on what became "Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace," when there were just rumbles of a possible new film or even *Gasp!* a new trilogy of films. Hell, I remember when the Special Editions were just a rumor. I remember when a friend of mine called and said, "They're not a rumor. I have something to show you." He came by my house with a videotape, and on that videotape was the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition," the very first new "Star Wars" footage in what had been fourteen years at that point. It was mind-blowing. It made me reassess »

Who’s next in line for Star Wars director duties?

12 August 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gavin Logan looks at which directors could be in line for a Star Wars movie….

It’s now been almost two years since Disney officially acquired LucasFilm and with it the rights to the Star Wars universe. George Lucas said in his statement that he always believed that Star Wars could live beyond him and that the time was right for the torch to be passed to a new generation of filmmakers. First up was J.J. Abrams, fresh off his successful reboot of Star Trek. Abrams, while not exactly young and new to the industry, has a certain Spielberg-esque quality about the way he makes movies and seemed like the perfect fit for relaunching the Star Wars franchise. Once Abrams was nailed down and he and Lawrence Kasdan began reworking Michael Arndt’s script, little or no other details were announced despite incessant rumours flying around the internet.

Michael Fassbender has Ideas for Magneto

12 August 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Michael Fassbender has ideas for how he'd like to explore Magneto and has discussed them with Simon Kinberg, who is currently writing X-Men: Apocalypse with Bryan Singer. Talking to IGN while promoting his new movie Frank, where he wears a giant fake head and starts and art band, Fassbender had this to say about Magneto's future:

"Yeah, I mean, I haven't got a script or anything yet, but I'm always excited to see where Simon Kinberg's going to go with the next X-Men. X-Men's been great to me and allowed me to do so much, including films like Frank. I've had a lot of fun with the cast and with the character, Magneto. So I had a good chat with Simon [Kinberg] when we were on our way to Moscow, and we tossed around some ideas on the plane over there. So I'm pretty excited to see how it all comes together. »

How Simon Kinberg got 'Fantastic Four' collaborator Josh Trank into ‘Star Wars’ galaxy

8 August 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) If you’re excited for Josh Trank’s "Star Wars" spinoff, there’s someone you should thank: Simon Kinberg. Kinberg and Trank are collaborators on Fox’s upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot. Furthermore, Kinberg is part of Lucasfilm’s "Star Wars" brain trust, helping to write some of the films, as well as the "Star Wars Rebels" animated series. Speaking with Slash Film, Kinberg revealed that he was the one who connected Trank and Lucasfilm. “I spoke very highly of Josh to the Lucasfilm guys. They were interested in him because he, like Rian [Johnson, director of "Episode VIII"] and like Gareth [Edwards, director of a 2016 spin-off], is very much that next generation filmmaker,” Kinberg said. “He comes from a background of making a big movie without a big budget. Which I think is also, not that these movies … they’ll have huge budgets, but the sort of the tradition that George [Lucas] started was somebody that came from making "American Graffiti »

Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons Talk Kingsman: The Secret Service, Matthew Vaughn, Comics vs. Film, Watchmen, Future Projects, and More

8 August 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my most anticipated movies is director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service.  The story is based on the comic by written by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons about a veteran secret agent (Colin Firth) who takes a teen delinquent (Taron Egerton) from the streets of London, and brings him into a British spy school that molds its students into suave 007-types.  As a huge fan of what Vaughn did with X-Men: First Class and how awesome the first trailer looks, I cannot wait to see the finished film when it opens February 13, 2015.  For more on the film, here's our Comic-Con panel recap and our interview with Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson.  Shortly before their panel at Comic-Con, I landed an exclusive video interview with Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.   They talked about working with Vaughn, the way he likes to do action, how Kingsman brings back the fun espionage genre, »
