Watch Wolverine, Star-Lord And Others Give The Finger In Rude, Hilarious Video

30 June 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Flipping the bird is a time-honored expression of anger, rage, and disdain in our culture. Who would expect that the simple act of extending a single finger could cause such a ruckus, but if you want a reminder of just how nuts people go when you flip them off, next time you.re driving, point your middle finger towards the sky, show it to the person next to you, and watch them flip out. This is obviously a gesture that is used quite often in film, and this new supercut features some quite memorable moments, including a few from our favorite superheroes, like Wolverine and Star-Lord. To this day, even 29 years later, the incident from Top Gun, where Maverick and Goose hover upside down above the MiG and flip off the Russian pilot, may very well be my favorite instance of this in all of movie history. But that.s »

'Top Gun 2' Script in Works With 'Amazing Role' for Tom Cruise's Maverick

29 June 2015 3:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Top Gun 2" feels no need for speed. The original came out in May 1986 and we've been talking about a sequel for years. But it sounds like stuff is finally in motion on Maverick's (Tom Cruise) second round, with Skydance CEO David Ellison giving Collider an update during press day for "Terminator Genisys" in Berlin.

Way back in 2010, Tony Scott was being considered to direct, with Christopher McQuarrie charged with writing the script. Sadly, much has changed -- Scott died in 2012 and it sounds like McQuarrie is no longer on board for the script. Here's the latest from Ellison:

Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today. There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick. »

Why You Shouldn’t Trust Box Office Predictions

28 June 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week in The Callow Way, Neil Calloway looks at projected box office takings…

I saw the headline and was momentarily confused “Marvel’s Ant-Man tracking $55-$60 million domestic opening weekend”. “Hold on,” I thought, “The movie hasn’t been released yet.” Then I realised it referred to its predicted, rather than actual opening box office. As Flickering Myth reported, that would make it one of Marvel’s lowest grossing films, down at the bottom of the list with The Incredible Hulk from 2008 and some way behind the next lowest grossing films from the Marvel stable, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, who both had a $65 million dollar opening weekend in 2011.

As FM pointed out, while box office is still king, Us domestic box office is becoming an increasingly smaller factor in whether a film is a success, however, I did wonder whether tracking predictions of a movie’s »

Top Gun 2 Will Center On Drones And The End Of The Fighter Pilot Era

26 June 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jurassic World proved that studios can dust off box office fossils to the tune of record-breaking grosses, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Paramount and Skydance are more gung-ho than ever about Top Gun 2, which will find Tom Cruise again taking on the role of pilot Maverick.

At a group interview related to Terminator Genisys, Skydance CEO David Ellison and Cco Dana Goldberg fielded some questions about the current status of the sequel, which Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li) was tasked with scripting last September. Ellison spoke enthusiastically about his own love of flying in relation to the pic:
