A Prequel To 'The Omen' In The Works

28 April 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Antonio Campos, the indie filmmaker who most recently directed the Sundance movie Christine, is in negotiations to helm the prequel for supernatural horror thriller titled The First Omen at 20th Century Fox.

The First Omen was written by Ben Jacoby and David Goyer and Kevin Turen will produce the prequel through their Phantom Four banner.

The original film which was directed by Richard Donner (SupermanThe Goonies and the Lethal Weapon movies) starred the great Gregory Peck as an ambassador who comes to believe that his 5-year-old son may be the living embodiment of the Antichrist.

The 1976 Omen was one of the biggest hits of the year and was considered one of the scariest movies of the decade at that time. The Omen spawned two film sequels and a series of novels. There was also a remake of the film back in 2006 which was directed »

The Omen Prequel Is Happening at 20th Century Fox

28 April 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The problem with most prequels is that the original never intended to show you what happened before the events deemed worthy enough to depict in a movie. But that isn't stopping the brain trust at 20th Century Fox from moving forward on The First Omen, a precursor to the 1976 classic that introduced Damien to the world. Antonio Campos, who made waves with his Sundance hit Christine (not a Stephen King remake) is in talks to direct.

A grown-up Damien is at the center of a new A&E horror series that debuted earlier this year, and 20th Century Fox already blew it with their critically panned remake of The Omen in 2006. So they're taking this long-standing horror franchise in a totally new direction. This next movie is produced by David Goyer and Kevin Turen under their Phantom Four banner. There are no story details. The movie will tell what happened »

Frank Marshall Talks 'Indiana Jones 5'

12 April 2016 5:05 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Variety recently spoke to famed producer Frank Marshall at CinemaCon in Las Vegas where the famed producer discussed Harrison Ford's involvement with the fifth "Indiana Jones" film from Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Pictures.

Putting the rumors to rest, Marshall confirmed that Harrison Ford is the only actor suited to play archaeologist Indiana Jones saying:

"I think both in the ‘Jason Bourne’ series and on ‘Indiana Jones,’ we are not going to do the Bond thing. We think those characters are iconic, and those are the only actors who can play that.” 

Last year it was speculated that actor Chris Pratt was in line to replace Ford and star in a brand new reboot of "Indiana Jones" for Lucasfilm and Disney.

Frank Marshall is known for producing Paramount Pictures and Steven Spielberg's "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" in 1981. He then went on to create Amblin Entertainment with Steven Spielberg and his wife, »

Frank Marshall: Harrison Ford Is One and Only ‘Indiana Jones,’ ‘Not Going to Do the Bond Thing’

11 April 2016 3:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Producer Frank Marshall expressed excitement about getting under way in the making of the fifth installment in the “Indiana Jones” franchise, and said he can’t imagine ever having another actor replace Harrison Ford in the title role.

In a Q&A on Monday after being named CinemaCon’s producer of the decade, Marshall called it “pretty sweet” to be returning to the film series that introduced him 35 years ago to director Steven Spielberg and to his future wife, Kathleen Kennedy, now president of “Star Wars” maker Lucasfilm.

Asked by Variety senior film and media writer Brent Lang about continuing “Indiana Jones” for even more sequels, Marshall said it could happen. “It’s all about the story. I think both in the ‘Jason Bourne’ series and on ‘Indiana Jones,’ we are not going to do the Bond thing,” Marshall said, referring to rotating different actors through the title roles in »

13 Movies You Loved As A Child (But Hate As An Adult)

27 March 2016 3:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Buena Vista Pictures

For kids of the 1980s and 90s, our favourite childhood films represent everything that was great about being young in those decades – the clothes, the hair, the music, the slapstick bad guys and underdog heroes. The terrible truth, however, is that kids make awful film critics. As children, we don’t question the cinematography or judge the acting, we are just happy to be along for the ride, no matter how bad it actually is.

Nostalgia is a curious thing, protecting things we loved as children like a blinkered shield, But if we were able to lift that sepia tint, we would see that we often choose to remember the good parts while subconsciously blocking out the bad, and the same goes for the way we remember the movies we watched as children.

While this period in cinematic history did produce some unforgettable and truly iconic kids movies (rest assured, »

Film Market Researcher Richard Del Belso Dies at 76

14 March 2016 2:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Michael Del Belso, who helped revolutionize movie market research, died on March 5 after a yearlong battle with lung cancer. He was 76.

His death was confirmed by his husband, jazz singer and lyricist Mark Winkler.

Del Belso began his career in the early 1970s in New York at Benton & Bowles before moving to Grey Advertising, where he handled aspects of major automobile and national brand packaged-goods campaigns.

In 1976 Universal Pictures brought him to Los Angeles as its research director. He worked on “Animal House,” “The Wiz,” “The Jerk,” “Coal Miner’s Daughter” and Oscar best picture winner “The Deer Hunter.”

In 1978 Del Belso sought the outside services of Joe Farrell and Catherine Paura at National Research Group to take research methods used in their previous fields — political research at the Harris Poll and traditional advertising — and apply them to movies. Those new techniques included test screenings, trailer and TV commercial testing, »

‘Among the Living’ DVD Review

19 February 2016 7:12 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Beatrice Dalle, Théo Fernandez, Damien Ferdel, Zacharie Chasseriaud, Anne Marivin, Francis Renaud, Fabien Jegoudez, Nicolas Giraud, Chloé Coulloud, Dominique Frot | Written and Directed by Julien Maury, Alexandre Bustillo

French directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the driving force behind the notorious L’interieur (aka Inside) and the stylish Livid, turn their gallic focus to a much-maligned genre – the slasher movie – with Among the Living, a film that’s best described as Stephen King’s Stand By Me meets Friday the 13th.

Starting out with a disturbing prologue featuring a cameo by an almost unrecognisable Beatrice Dalle; a prologue that recalls the nastiness and brutality of L’interieur, Among the Living tells the story of troublemakers Victor, Tom and Dan who, on the last day of school, leave early to explore the countryside and commit petty crime. Ending up on the scenery-strewn back-lot at an abandoned film studio, they witness »

Jack Black’s Goosebumps Is A Nostalgia Ride (Even If You’ve Never Read The Books)

18 January 2016 9:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

Rating: ★★★

I have never read a Goosebumps book. By the time the eager young bookworm in me was moving onto “proper” books (i.e. no illustrations), Harry Potter was exploding and contemporary children’s fiction changing, making the garish covers and pulpy titles of R. L. Stine’s plentiful novels a bit past it (I was an anti-nineties kid even at the time). I once picked up one of the “Choose your own adventure” spin-offs from the school library, but without the love for the material it felt rather monotonous.

This is very important to establish when talking about the Goosebumps movie, because Rob Letterman’s film appears to thrive on fond memories for those books. Countless stories, from the big (Slappy, the creepy ventriloquist dummy, is the main villain) to the obscure (deadly gnomes) get name-checked and Stine himself is a main character, played by a sometimes-gurning but mostly well-timed Jack Black. »
