Hellboy III Would Happen, Except Hollywood Won't Give Guillermo Del Toro Any Money

7 hours ago

The Hellboy series is one of those franchises that's never really attracted mainstream attention. The film did just well enough to get a sequel, and that sequel did just well enough to make people hope for more. Much like Pacific Rim, audiences want a sequel and Guillermo del Toro would be happy to oblige. There's just one 2000 lb kaiju in the room preventing any forward movement: the studios won't pony up the dough to make a Hellboy 3. During his Reddit Ama this afternoon, del Toro was asked the inevitable Hellboy 3 question. Namely "why in the hell do we not have a Hellboy 3 to look forward to?" His answer was as obvious as the question itself, as he said: Creatively, I would love to make it. Creatively. But it is proven almost impossible to finance. Not from My side, but from the studio side. If I was a multimillionaire, »

North Korea Is Complaining To The United Nations About The Interview

8 hours ago

Remember when North Korean leaders complained about Seth Rogen and James Franco.s new movie The Interview and nothing whatsoever changed? Well, the silence doesn.t mean Kim Jong-un and company have gotten over it. In fact, they.re still pretty pissed off, and now, they.re taking the matter to the United Nations. According to TMZ, North Korean ambassador to the United Nations, Ja Song Nam, just filed an official complaint with the organization, claiming The Interview is a clear sponsorship of terrorism from the United States Government. Here.s the official quote. "To allow the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent Head of a sovereign State should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war." It.s highly unlikely anyone at the United Nations will take North Korea seriously. The organization is in »

Will The Fantastic Four Surprise Fans At Comic-Con?

13 hours ago

Will the new The Fantastic Four show face in Comic-Con or not? That.s the question on the lips of fans as they prepare for the onslaught of news and opinions that will be flying out of San Diego in a few weeks. We, of course, plan to be on the ground at Comic-Con this year, and we are just now starting to receive concrete plans from major studios about the projects they are bringing. and the ones that they are not. As we reported earlier, Star Wars: Episode VII will be a no show, but that.s no surprise. Now we are hearing that Josh Trank.s The Fantastic Four will bypass the annual comic book convention . and that strikes us as odd. Fox.s official movie panel, according to a release (and the Comic-Con site) will include The Maze Runner, Book of Life, Hitman: Agent 47, Let.s Be »

Watch This Groundbreaking Animated Short From A Legendary Disney Artist

13 hours ago

Called simply "Duet," this animated short is the creation of Glen Keane, an animator who worked for Walt Disney Studios for nearly 37 years. As you can see, this lovely and luminescent cartoon unfurls the love story of a boy and girl who've know each other since infancy. But beyond being beautiful, there's something truly unique about this particular animation, though you might not guess it from the above render. Big Cartoon News reports that "Duet" is the first release to come from Glen Keane's recent association with Google and Motorola. The 60-year-old animator who contributed to the character animation for such beloved Disney films as The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Tarzan, and Tangled left Disney in the spring of 2012. But rather than retire, he joined the Advanced Technology and Projects Group Motorola and Google had created to further merge the worlds of art and technology. Duet »

Fast And Furious 7 Shuts Down Car-Stunt Scene For Being Too Dangerous

15 hours ago

Fearing for the safety of the cast and crew, Universal Studios executives reportedly shut down a vehicular stunt that was supposed to be part of James Wan.s upcoming Fast and Furious 7, claiming that it was too risky for a production that already has indirectly been marred by the death of a founding contributor, Paul Walker. Sources connected to the production told TMZ that a critical scene, which was supposed to be filmed on Thursday, was cancelled by "suits from Universal" who feared that the scene in question was too dangerous. According to the report, the scene was supposed to involve "a souped-up yellow Chevelle" that would race another car and "dramatically pop a wheelie, as bystanders stand right by the track and cheer." Could that be the scene that Vin Diesel hinted at in his most recent Facebook post? Because in that message, he thanks the good people at »

Dawn Of The Planet of The Apes Opens To $4.1 Million Thursday

17 hours ago

Summer's been a bit of a bummer for the movie industry. With Transformers: Age Of Extinction slowly declining, there's a very good chance the season ends without a single film crossing the $250 million threshold domestically. Some looked at this weekend's Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes as a potential savior. But if early numbers are to be believed, the apes are not necessarily going to rescue the multiplex. Pressure's on you, Planes: Fire & Rescue! Deadline reports that Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes only pulled in $4.1 million in late-night shows last night beginning at 10 Pm. By comparison, the midnight shows for Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes three years ago totaled only $1.25 million. So it's an improvement, and an even bigger win if you throw out inflation, 3D, and the two-hour-earlier showtime. Good, right? Not so fast. Rise Of The Planet of The Apes opened to $54.8 million »

Star Wars Reveals Its Comic-Con Plans

17 hours ago

Deep down, in the backs of our minds, we held a sliver of hope that J.J. "Mystery Box" Abrams would bring a snippet of footage from Star Wars: Episode VII to San Diego Comic-Con, just to keep the intense heat of fan interest blazing on the wildly anticipated sequel. But reports have now surfaced that Star Wars (basically) is skipping Comic-Con once again, dashing the hopes of young Jedi everywhere. Deadline breaks the news that will break thousands of hearts, stating that "sources close to the production and at Comic-Con" have confirmed that Disney and LucasFilm have no plans to bring Star Wars: Episode VII to San Diego. There won.t be a complete absence of Star Wars content at the Con, however. Disney Xd will hold a panel for its animated Star Wars Rebels series on Thursday, July 24. That panel is expected to include executive producers Dave Filoni »

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes: The Gif Review

17 hours ago

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is now upon us, bringing with it the best computer-generated enhancements this long-running franchise has ever seen. Sean tackled Cinema Blend's official review of the Matt Reeves tent pole that has Andy Serkis reprising his role as the smarter-than-the-average ape Caesar. But with a cinematic spectacle this big, it seemed the perfect time to further explore the response this adventure elicits with a Gif review. What follows is a diary of my reactions (and overreactions) watching Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Be warned: Slight Spoilers Lie Ahead! Like many moviegoers, I grew up with Planet of The Apes movies. It was kind of unavoidable. Every few years, some cable channel would decide to marathon them all. And who can turn away from the strange appeal of Roddy McDowall's lovable monkey Cornelius? Oh. Right. Anyhow, with this deeply instilled love and »

Gary Oldman Joins Kevin Costner In Hilarious-Sounding Thriller Criminal

18 hours ago

Some ideas are just so perfectly, delightfully stupid that you just have to see them. Hollywood is made up of not only bad ideas, but great bad ideas that people will eventually be seduced into seeing. Criminal, the latest joy-bringer from Millennium Films, is a perfect example of the sort of film you just might enjoy in spite of a central idea that sounds like the invention of twelve year olds. And now, it's got a couple of great actors attached. The Hollywood Reporter announced that Gary Oldman, fresh off Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes has joined the cast of Criminal, starring Kevin Costner as an... oooh boy. This thing is silly. Costner plays a prison inmate who somehow absorbs the memories, secrets and skills of a dead CIA operative. Instead of ignoring this as a dopey contrivance, a weirdly supernatural goof of sorts, the CIA then recruits »

Ryan Gosling And Russell Crowe Confirmed For The Nice Guys

19 hours ago

Is Shane Black back yet? Can we successfully call it a Shane Black world? The writer-director returned from the wilderness with the billion-dollar Iron Man 3, seemingly attracting his own blank check. But that blank check took a little extra time to materialize, as Black re-arranged the puzzle pieces. Now, he's locked and loaded into his next movie, and The Nice Guys will be a return to the classic Black that re-ignited blockbuster cinema in the eighties and nineties. The Hollywood Reporter claims that the WB has jumped onto The Nice Guys and will produce and distribute the film, with Shane Black's choices of Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in the lead roles. The project is a noir, produced by Joel Silver (Lethal Weapon) where a private eye and hired muscle team up to investigate the murder of a porn star, only to find out that she has ties »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Motion Posters Have Arrived

10 July 2014 9:51 PM, PDT

We're about a month away from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which means the ad campaign is about to head into overdrive. Goody. The Platinum Dunes-produced remake (ack, those words need to stop being in the same sentence) was always an inevitability, so we all should have expected the corresponding ads to tip the scales of insanely busy obnoxiousness. In case you thought otherwise, here are some brand new motion posters! Oh, motion posters, the sonnet of the 21st century. Complex has the debut of the motion poster above, showcasing Raphael. Because it is a contemporary movie made by people who became wealthy making bad movies (specifically Jonathan Liebesman, of Wrath Of The Titans fame), Raphael is a big screaming blur who fights some of the Foot Clan, pushes a giant fan, then slide down an avalanche and into a car in "awesome" slow motion. Or, if you're not paying super »

The Maze Runner Scribe Recruited To Write Allegiant

10 July 2014 8:01 PM, PDT

The Divergent series is moving forward with full force, Insurgent already well on its ways from Lionsgate. While that shoots, they're preparing the next two films entitled Allegiant, slated for March releases in 2016 and 2017. And now they have the person who is ready to take them on that journey with the mightiest of weapons: the pen! Noah Oppenheim has been tipped to adapt Veronica Roth's Allegiant, according to THR. Oppenheim is a television producer-turned screenwriter and, curiously, his only other credit as a writer is as co-writer on The Maze Runner , another prospective Ya adaptation. That Fox blockbuster, also about a dystopian future world where teens are forced to fight to save a decayed world, hits theaters this September. Insurgent is currently shooting in Atlanta. The last time we saw our intrepid heroes Tris and Four, they had fought to end the reign of tyranny over the colonies. Robert Schwentke »

Hero Blend #25: 10 Things You Don't Know About Guardians Of The Galaxy

10 July 2014 2:50 PM, PDT

Movies centering on Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and Hulk were risky but necessary ventures when Marvel Studios was first starting out, as those heroes don.t have quite the same pop culture name recognition as heroes like Spider-Man or the Fantastic Four. As we.ve been saying for a few years now, however, the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy is in its own category within this department. Even die-hard comic book fans new very little about this cosmic team of heroes when the feature was announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, and there are still many out there who still have a ton of questions about exactly what we can expect. Lucky for you, I.m here to help. With James Gunn.s sci-fi epic now just a couple of weeks away from hitting theaters, I.ve once again invited back on the show Cinema Blend.s own Mack Rawden »

Sherlock's Steven Moffatt Directing Star Wars? Here's The Full Story

10 July 2014 2:17 PM, PDT

If you're a true-blue sci-fi geek, then you very likely know the name Steven Moffat. An extremely prolific writer and producer, he is best known for helping resurrect Doctor Who and creating Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. The dark side of having these kind of fan-driven credits, however, is that the filmmakers behind them often get swept into rumors about bigger franchises. Well, it's happened again today with Moffat and a rumored Star Wars project- but it turns out that the story is definitely not true. This rumor originated at the fan site Jedi News, which claimed to have insider information that told them that Steven Moffat was in talks to take on some kind of future Star Wars project. The source didn't specify exactly what kind of movie he would be making, be it a continuation of the saga like Episode X or one of the three »
