Will Smith on Netflix: ‘They Give You Money and Let You Make the Movie You Want to Make’

55 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Will Smith might be one of the biggest movie stars of the last two decades, but he doesn’t seem too bothered by the fact that his next movie will premiere on the small screen.

“It’s really exciting to be at the forefront of whatever this new way of consuming media is,” he said during the Comic-Con presentation of Netflix’s “Bright,” the upcoming fantasy hybrid film directed by David Ayer. “I have a 16-year-old and a 19-year-old, and movies they go to see in the theater are different from the movies they watch at home.”

And both he and Ayer sang their praises for Netflix’s famously hands-off approach. In Smith’s words, “I’m sure this will end soon, but they give you money and let you make the movie you want to make. »

Though Disney is not having a panel to show off Wrinkle (like Star Wars and Pixar, the film got its due last weekend at D23), the studio is performed a stunt around the convention center Thursday to get people hyped for it.

Will Smith, ‘Bright’ Director David Ayer on Netflix: ‘They Let You Be a Filmmaker’

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Put David Ayer squarely in the pro-Netflix camp.

The “Bright” director praised the streaming service for giving him creative freedom to make his upcoming fantasy adventure during a panel discussion on Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con.

“They let you be a filmmaker,” Ayer said. He later added that the picture, which reunites him with his “Suicide Squad” star Will Smith, “Ain’t no bull s–t, PG-13 studio movie. This is real s–t.”

Smith also praised Netflix for rolling the dice on “Bright,” a special effects-heavy picture that reportedly cost $90 million to produce. “I’m sure this will end soon, but they just give you the money and say, ‘Go make a movie,'” said Smith.

Mads Mikkelsen cast in villain role in Doug Liman’s Chaos Walking

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Doug Liman has just rounded out the main cast of his adaptation of Chaos Walking by adding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s Mads Mikkelsen in the villain role, per The Hollywood Reporter. The actor is in final negotiations to play the film’s antagonist, plaguing co-stars Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming).

Mikkelsen will portray the “ruthless mayor of Prentisstown who is searching for the young man he once mentored and who is a religiously minded keeper of his own secrets and is planning to expand his reach.”

Mikkelsen has played the villain in many of his roles, most notably the James Bond film Casino Royale, »

Great Job, Internet!: Indiana Jones-Star Wars mashup manages to brutally murder Jar Jar, so there’s that

6 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The requirements for a successful movie mashup really depend on the ultimate goal of the one doing the mashing. Maybe you’re looking to prove two different movies are actually the same movie, so you match them up beat-for-beat like this Avatar/Pocahontas mashup. Maybe you’re aiming for maximum comedic effect, so you pick movies from opposing sides of the quality and genre spectrum, like The Wizard Of Oz and You Got Served. Or maybe you just realized Harrison Ford was in two movie franchises and figured that’s a good enough reason to edit them together.

That seemed to be enough for French filmmaker Fabrice Mathieu, the creator of “Raiders Of The Lost Darth,” a mashup of (you guessed it) the opening scene from Raiders Of The Lost Ark and various aspects of the Star Wars franchise. The resulting six-minute short oscillates between convincingly cool and glaringly absurd »

It is our tradition to kick off Comic-Con by walking the showfloor on preview night and taking photos of anything movie-related. This year, since Alex is not attending himself, the photos are coming from Marc Levy - a photographer working at Comic-Con. Our presence at Comic-Con has changed in the last few years (we're taking a break after 10 years since Alex has relocated to Berlin) but it's still always exciting to follow. To keep up with the tradition anyway, we present our initial gallery of shots from the showfloor at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 with photos taken by Marc exclusively for Fs.net.

‘Dunkirk’ Box Office: Why It Stands Little Chance of Breaking War Movie Records

7 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Christopher Nolan’s World War II retreat-and-rescue epic “Dunkirk” has critical acclaim and is the first 2017 studio film to stand as a serious awards contender. However, it’s unlikely to become a significant player among the top war films at the box office.

Over the last decade, Nolan’s made five films that grossed $200 million-$658 million (adjusted domestic). However, while war films can still draw big numbers (Clint Eastwood’s 2014’s “American Sniper” earned $381 million, domestic adjusted), Nolan’s movie may be hampered by history.

War is the backdrop to some of the most popular films of all time, including “Star Wars” as well as “Gone With the Wind” and “The Sound of Music,” the #1 and 3 domestic grossers of all time. David Lean’s “Lawrence of Arabia” was more of a biography-character study, but it was an epic »
