16 August 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary chairman and CEO Thomas Tull has come on board to produce the doc “K-9,” which revolves around the intense world of dogs in law enforcement and the military.

Ten-time Emmy winners Jonathan Hock and Greg Kohs will direct.

With today’s evolving security threats, the use of highly trained dogs working in conjunction with military and law enforcement personal has become an important combination on both the modern battlefield as well as in the daily work of domestic law enforcement. The documentary will explore the unique relationship between combat, bomb-sniffing, search and rescue and security dogs and their human handlers, telling their stories.

Tull will also finance the doc.

Legendary finally unveils their long-promised Chinese action film 'The Great Wall'

28 July 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the future of blockbuster movies. Legendary Pictures was started as a major funding partner for studios, with an aggressive creative team of their own onboard, and over the years, I’ve talked to Thomas Tull repeatedly about his goals and his work. Tull has stayed very true to the earliest vision of what Legendary should be, and he genuinely seems to be driven by his own interests as a fan. He didn’t get interested in Batman and Superman because Warner needed someone to pay for their films; he specifically asked to be involved in those films because he adores them. Same thing with Godzilla. Same thing with Pacific Rim. These are things that hit Tull dead center in his nerd pleasure center, and he throws his support behind them because he wants to see them given all the resources possible. Legendary is now heavily involved with Chinese money, »

Matt Damon Fights Monsters in First Trailer For Zhang Yimou’s ‘The Great Wall’

28 July 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

People love — or are at least intrigued by — stories about national monuments and mysteries that are contained within them. So comes Zhang Yimou‘s latest feature, The Great Wall. The first trailer has arrived for the action thriller, which follows Matt Damon and mysterious circumstances around the construction of the titular wall in China. Explosions, monsters, and Damon’s infamous ponytail ensue.

Based on the story by Max Brooks and Thomas Tull, the script is co-penned by Tony Gilroy, who has a longstanding filmic collaboration with Damon. Dp Stuart Dryburgh‘s (Blackhat) sharp eye is on full display, mixing grand imagery with more intimate strokes.

“The film takes place about 1,000 years ago. At its core, it is a period piece and an action film,” the director tells EW. “The fantasy element does play a major role because of the monsters. But, what makes our film unique is that these are ancient Chinese monsters. »

Comic Con: Kong, Arthur trailers unleashed

24 July 2016 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It has been a busy weekend for new movie trailers and we’re going to attempt to bring all of them to you over the next couple of hours. Let’s kick things off with a couple of trailers from the Warner Brothers panel from over the weekend, and in particular the trailers for Kong: Skull Island and Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword. Both films are set to hit cinemas next March.

First up, Kong: Skull Island.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Kong: Skull Island” reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.  In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

Eddie Redmayne charms Comic-Con

23 July 2016 5:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Another British actor earned his place in convention lore on Saturday as the Oscar-winner and star of the upcoming Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them handed out wands to everybody in Hall H.

The decision by the Warner Bros hierarchy to have Redmayne walk among the people – many of whom were screaming in glee – was a masterstroke finale that lifted what had otherwise been a typically loud presentation, albeit one inflected with more nuance and humour than this studio’s Comic-Con appearances are known for.

An otherwise satisfying session for executives had dipped into awkwardness earlier in the session when Suicide Squad director David Ayer acknowledged that someone would probably live-stream the trailer he was about to introduce – hitting on one of reasons why Hollywood has broadly stayed away this year.
