Hannibal Is Taking Steps Towards A New Movie

1 hour ago

Bryan Fuller's brilliant Hannibal series might have come to an end on television this past weekend, but it's possible that we have not yet seen the end of the show's impressive continuity. As we learned back during San Diego Comic-Con, one of the options being pursued for the future of the story is the idea of making a big screen movie - and apparently producers are already out talking to people about making that idea a reality. With the Hannibal series finale airing last night on NBC, The Hollywood Reporter recently spoke with Bryan Fuller about the show's present, past and future, and it was during the conversation that the showrunner revealed progress for a possible feature follow-up to the series' three season run. At this stage, executive producer Martha De Laurentiis is apparently looking into financing for the project, and Fuller already has a specific idea of the »

Weekend Box Office: Straight Outta Compton Three-peats, We Are Your Friends Bombs

2 hours ago

Straight Outta Compton enjoyed a third weekend as number one movie, earning its three-peat not so much on staying power but a lack of anything better showing up to compete. Religious drama War Room was the weekend's highest per-theater earner, banking almost $10,000 per screen, but given its limited release, sales only added up to $11 million. That wasn't enough to topple Compton which dropped a normal 50% from last weekend, adding #13 million to its now $134 million total. No Escape didn't have a built in audience to play to like War Room, or if it did (does Owen Wilson have a fan club?) they didn't show up to help the movie off to a good start. With an $8 million opening it managed a weak fourth place debut. In a bid to milk as much summer revenue as it can out of its newest and goldeniest cash cow, Universal almost re-doubled the number of »

3 hours ago

With Hitman: Agent 47 having only made $15 million in its first two weeks of release here in America, now doesn't exactly seem like the best time to be announcing new projects based on video games.

Lionsgate officially announced the project via a press release, noting that the movie is being developed as a tent-pole feature that has Spider-Man producers Avi and Ari Arad attached to shepherd the project.

This Dark Knight Fan Theory Puts The Joker As The Hero, And It Kind Of Works

29 August 2015 2:21 PM, PDT

The beauty of great film is that it when they end, they often leave room for debate as to what the audience has just witnessed. Seven years after its release, audiences continue to find new and intriguing ways to interpret the events in Christopher Nolan.s Batman epic The Dark Knight. According to a fan theory posited by Redditor Generalzee, Heath Ledger's Joker is actually the protagonist of the events that transpire in The Dark Knight. While he.s certainly unhinged, and leaves a trail of carnage in his wake, he does more to actually clean up the streets of Gotham City than Batman or Harvey Dent ever could. The theory reads: Entire sections of the city were closed off due to madness, organized crime ran rampant, and the majority of important city officials were wildly corrupt. The city even tolerated a renegade vigilante who ran around wearing a »

The Chicken Soup For The Soul Movie Picked One Of The Worst Possible Release Dates

28 August 2015 7:41 PM, PDT

Usually, when plotting the release of your film, you want to use give your product, which you.ve spent a significant amount of time, effort, and capital to produce, every advantage you can get. Increasingly, there.s more and more competition for fewer and fewer audience members. Chicken Soup for the Soul, however, just made what appears to be a very counterintuitive move, scheduling its release up against what is sure to be one of the biggest movies of 2016. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chicken Soup for the Soul has set its release date as December 16, 2016. If that specific Friday some 16 months from now sounds familiar, that.s probably because it also happens to be the release date of the first of the standalone Star Wars Story films, the Gareth Edwards-directed Rogue One. With Star Wars: The Force Awakens looming on the horizon this December, hype for the »

Woody Allen Already Replaced Bruce Willis With ...

28 August 2015 6:25 PM, PDT

So, Bruce Willis left the latest Woody Allen movie, and though initial reports say it was due to a scheduling conflict, the latest reports are that the Die Hard star got canned. But don't worry if you're super psyched for the neurotic auteur's next film and worried it might be delayed, because they already replaced Willis, and they landed a an A-lister to boot. According to a report from Deadline, the as-yet-untitled film has cast The Office and The 40-Year-Old Virgin star Steve Carell to take over for Bruce Willis. There's definitely a different style moving from one of these actors to the other. This will be Carell's second time teaming up with Allen, as he was also part of the director's 2004 romantic comedy-drama Melinda and Melinda. Though there is little in the way of details on this latest Woody Allen joint.he.s »

Michael B. Jordan Will Follow Fantastic Four With Another Comic Book Movie

28 August 2015 5:20 PM, PDT

You might think that after Fantastic Four, which was a debacle on every level, those involved might want to steer away from comic book movies, at least for a while. That may be the case for some, but not for Michael B. Jordan, who played Johnny Storm in the ill-fated film, as he has set his sights on the comic book-based vampire comedy Blood Brothers, which sounds like it's going to be awesome. According to The Tracking Board, Jordan is in talks to take one of the two leads in Blood Brothers for MGM. He's up for the role of Tree in the film that is described as an "edgy two-hander." While the story does indeed originate on the pages of a comic book, that's where the similarities with Fantastic Four begin and end. This is not your typical superhero comic book we're talking about here. »

Jk Rowling Fires Back At Claims Fantastic Beasts Is Too White

28 August 2015 2:20 PM, PDT

While fans of the magical world of Harry Potter are excited to return to that realm in the spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the casting has stirred up a bit of controversy. Set in New York in the 1920s, a veritable melting pot of a city, what we know of the cast is exclusively white, which has raised some eyebrows. Potter creator, and Beasts screenwriter, J.K. Rowling, has now chimed in, hoping to assuage these fears. An article in Hypable recently showed up and raised concerns about New York City, which was and still is a mixture of cultures from around the world, will be whitewashed, and others have expressed similar concerns. Rowling took to Twitter and said:   @Vividscarletsky Everyone in #FantasticBeasts is not white. — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) August 25, 2015 While we don’t know all of the cast members just yet, »

It Sounds Like Bruce Willis Was Fired By Woody Allen

28 August 2015 2:07 PM, PDT

Bruce Willis has indeed left the cast of Woody Allen’s upcoming film, but not for the reasons that we initially thought. While early reports indicated that Willis departed from the project as a result of scheduling conflicts with his participation in an adaptation of Stephen King’s Misery on Broadway, it has now come to light that director Woody Allen may have in fact fired the Die Hard star.  According to Hitfix, this news comes based off a Twitter excange between The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider and Tom O'Leary, which indicates Willis experienced immense difficulty delivering his lines. This trouble impeded production and caused excess stress on cast and crew members.   @TheInSneider Yep. Fired. A friend is on the film. Bruce couldn't remember a line. Cue cards were no help. Cast were losing their minds. — Tom O'Leary (@TomOLeary4) »

Godzilla In Pacific Rim 3? Guillermo Del Toro Wants It

28 August 2015 12:43 PM, PDT

We already know that when Pacific Rim 2 stomps through theaters in 2017, it.s going to be big. It.s a movie about giant monsters battling giant mechanical warriors, how can it not be massive? However, if director and mastermind Guillermo del Toro has his way, the franchise will get even bigger: he wants to bring Godzilla into the fold. Even months ahead of the release of the first Pacific Rim, and more than a year in front of Gareth Edward.s Godzilla reboot, the Hellboy director was talking about the possibilities. Moviepilot just put together an argument (we made a very similar case a few years back) for how and why this could happen, and pulled this quote del Toro gave in an interview with Collider back in 2013. Riffing on the possibility, he said: So far with the sequel, what we.re writing, what we.re creating, is very different, »

Watch Paul Bettany Become The Vision In New Avengers Video

28 August 2015 12:31 PM, PDT

Ever wanted to have your own Vision costume that was exactly like Paul Bettany.s in Avengers: Age Of Ultron? Of course you do, because it.s cool as funk. Well, a brand spanking new video to promote the upcoming release of Age Of Ultron on DVD has shown just how much rigmarole went into the actor becoming the Vision, and it will almost certainly have you rethinking your Halloween costume.  I.m going to put it out there: I love Paul Bettany. He just looks as though he.s one extremely positive and happy soul who is grateful everyday that he is a successful actor. Plus, it also probably helps that he.s married to the astonishingly talented and downright gorgeous Jennifer Connolly.  However, one point in time when Paul Bettany wasn.t that pleased with the world was when he realised the complicated process that he.d have »

28 August 2015 11:26 AM, PDT

Production on Suicide Squad sounds like it.s been one hell of a journey. Not only have the likes of Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and Jai Courtney been tasked with creating DC.s more anarchic version of Guardians Of The Galaxy, they.ve also had to put up Ben Affleck.s Batman causing mayhem on set just through his appearance, Comic-Con, and an abundance of tattoos. But now all of that is over, and to celebrate/commiserate, director David Ayer uploaded a rather magnificent picture to Twitter showing everyone on set together.

Matt Damon On How Recent Political Scandals Helped Shape Bourne 5

28 August 2015 10:15 AM, PDT

Matt Damon just provided an update on the upcoming fifth instalment to the Bourne franchise, explaining the main thrust and drive that drew him back to the character. As it turns out, we have Edward Snowden and the recent austerity crisis across Europe to thank for Damon.s involvement. During his recent discussion with Buzz Feed, Matt Damon, who previously starred in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Legacy, which in turn helped to turn him into a legitimate action star, admitted that everyone involved had to wait for the world to change in order to bring a fresh edge to the series. He explained that after discussing the idea of a follow-up a number of times with director Paul Greengrass over the years, it wasn.t until Edward Snowden and the Nsa whistleblowing tales emerged that they felt they had a story worth telling. Damon said: »
