Just this week we learned that DreamWorks would not be renewing their deal with Disney when it expires in 2016. And in anticipation of the contract expiring, Steven Spielberg has been in talks with Universal to become the new home to the filmmaker’s production company. Since this deal was revealed, there’s been a lot of […]

Let’s be honest, if you didn’t think you’d hear this news in your lifetime, you were kidding yourself.
In the wake of the news that Spielberg and Dreamworks were splitting from Disney to go and work with Universal, The Hollywood Reporter dropped in a very interesting note. It turns out that the studio has had plans (seemingly for some time) to reboot both Jaws and Back to the Future, and Spielberg is the key to these projects moving forward being that he directed the infamous shark movie and was executive producer on the beloved 80s time travel adventure.
“Sources say Spielberg commanded his rich director’s fee for Jurassic World — a percentage of profit worth tens of millions of dollars — from which he then paid helmer Colin Trevorrow. He also is key on potential reboots of other Universal franchises such as Jaws and Back to the Future. »

Steven Spielberg's production company Dreamworks is set to split from studio Disney, with reports stating that Universal is the company's most likely new home.
With both series originally released by Universal, Spielberg's potential move back to his old studio home makes the 68-year-old director/producer/cultural icon "key on potential reboots of other Universal franchises such as Jaws and Back to the Future".
The final film from Dreamworks to be released under the Disney banner will be The Bfg, which comes out on July 1, 2016, marking the end of a deal that's been in place since 2009.
Other films in Dreamworks' roster include anime adaptation Ghost in the Shell, starring Scarlett Johansson, which is pencilled in for »

Just a little earlier today, a big story broke that Steven Spielberg is considering taking DreamWorks to Universal after his contract with Disney runs out, which happens after the director's next project, the family adventure The Bfg. An item that is wedged into this report is the fact that Steven Spielberg is very key on rebooting two extremely popular franchises. Yes, as blasphemous as it sounds, the director wants to remake both his 1975 directorial effort Jaws and 1985's Back to The Future, which he produced for director Robert Zemeckis. This is what THR had to say about this somewhat shocking news.
As the days get darker and the cold winds of Autumn approach, it’s time to look ahead at the upcoming movies set to hit cinemas this Fall.
The huge slate includes the return of the Jedis, the rebirth of Frankenstein and a new age of Good Dinosaurs. These movies will take audiences to a Galaxy Far, Far Away, on a voyage to Mars and to the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest.
Here’s our list of the 2015 Fall movies that we can’t wait to see!
The Visit (Sept 11)
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable) and producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series) welcome you to Universal Pictures’ The Visit. Shyamalan returns to his roots with the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. »

Ever since 2009, when Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks parted ways with Paramount, Disney has distributed the studio's films, but that may all come to an end when their deal expires next year. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the director's upcoming adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Bfg, which hits theaters July 1, 2016, will be the last film Disney releases through its contract with DreamWorks, which expires in August 2016. The report reveals that Steven Spielberg may bring DreamWorks over to Universal Pictures, after the Disney pact runs out.
Steven Spielberg has always had his offices on the Universal Pictures lot, even while his DreamWorks company had distribution deals with Paramount and Disney. The report also claims that Steven Spielberg was a "hands-on" executive producer on the studio's massive box office hit Jurassic World, and he is also a vital part of the studio's plans for the sequel, Jurassic World 2, and their future theme park plans for the franchise. »
Giantscreens are almost as common as string sections in classical orchestras these days, as live movie concerts become an increasingly regular (and increasingly profitable) piece of programming around the country. And when you go to one of those concerts in Hollywood, you might just find the orchestra is conducted by one of the film’s original musicians.
That’s the case with “E.T.” when the concert screening of the film plays Sept. 4-6 at the Hollywood Bowl. Conducting the L.A. Philharmonic will be David Newman, a film composer (“Ice Age”) who was in the orchestra that recorded the John Williams score for Steven Spielberg’s 1982 favorite.
In New York, meanwhile, an October film concert of “Back to the Future” — produced, like “E.T.,” by Film Concerts Live!, a joint venture of performing arts management company Img Artists and music talent agency Gorfaine/Schwartz — will feature some 20 minutes of new music that the film’s composer, »

It looks like DreamWorks may be leaving Disney's fold and joining Universal.
THR reports that Steven Spielberg is currently in the midst of negotiating a distribution deal for DreamWorks before its current arrangement with the Walt Disney Co. expires in August 2016. The Spielberg-directed Roald Dahl adaptation "The Bfg" is looking to be the last released under the Disney deal.
DreamWorks' likely future home will be Universal Pictures where Spielberg has maintained his offices even as DreamWorks shacked up with Paramount and then Disney. Spielberg's involvement is also said to be key on potential reboots of other Universal franchises and the trade suggests the likes of "Jaws" and "Back to the Future" may get that treatment.
Several DreamWorks movies are in or near production including Lasse Hallstrom's currently shooting "A Dog's Purpose," Tate Taylor's high-profile novel adaptation "The Girl on the Train," and the Scarlett Johansson-led »

The first thing that came to mind while watching Listening was Project Almanac, a found footage science fiction thriller involving clean cut teenagers who, while dealing with the stress of college funding and high school drama, invent a time traveling device. It delve into butterfly effect schemes and the nature of what MTV believes is important to teenagers and what they would do with this sort of ablity in their hands. That movie’s downfall is that it goes against the very rules it sets. Time travel films are a very tricky genre to touch as laws of physics and multiple universes fall into play and it’s up to the movie to create a sense of logic for the audience to swallow, no matter how absurd. The Back To The Future franchise had some fun with the concept, while not dumbing down any material that science geeks will be offended by. »

“Why, this car is Auto-matic. Its System-matic. Its Hyyyyydro-matic. Why, its Greased Lightning!”
Grease (the Sing-a-Long version) screens midnights this weekend (September 4th and 5th) at The Moolah Theater (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo). Admission is only $5
In 1978 John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John starred in Grease, a ’70s version of a’50s musical. It was a huge hit and coming off the heels of his Oscar-nominated turn in Saturday Night Fever the year before, made a megastar of John Travolta (a wattage that was short-lived until his Pulp Fiction comeback almost 20 years later).Olivia Newton-John came from Australia and won the hearts of music fans. “You’re The One That I Want” is the hot number from the film. The pair dressed in black. “Tell me about it, stud!” she cooed. Grease appealed to younger generations. Male/female duos perform ‘Summer Nights’ to karaoke tracks. The film also exaggerated. The »

Amblin Entertainment is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of two of its biggest hits of all time. These are movies that went onto have a long shelf life, and are both adored by fans. But it seems that the Back to The Future 30th Anniversary celebration has dwarfed The Goonies. That movie is getting released back into theaters, will have a special edition Blu-ray, and a ton of other collectibles that are hitting store shelves this October. But The Goonies isn't being completely left out in the cold. Amazon has something very cool planned, and its something collectors are definitely going to want to get their hands on.
Amazon has started pressing and producing its own line of vinyl records under the Amazon label. And on October 9th, they are releasing 5 vinyl soundtracks to some of the 80s most beloved movies. Including The Goonies, which is getting a special 30th Anniversary release. »
