How Universal's Dark Universe Can Be Saved

4 July 2017 8:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sad news hit Universal Pictures this summer when their adventure thriller The Mummy flopped at the box office. It was supposed to ignite a sprawling monster franchise known as Dark Universe. But this first outing starring Tom Cruise was not the summer blockbuster hit the studio was hoping for. They have Bride of Frankenstein next on the docket. But many fans believe that this series, based on classic horror movies of yesteryear, is doomed. Well, guess what? It doesn't have to be that way. Universe can turn this sinking ship around, and we're confident that Dark Universe can live and thrive in today's modern cinematic landscape. But how you might ask? Let me explain.

With big movie franchises like Despicable Me, Jurassic World, Fast and Furious, The Bourne series, as well as the Fifty Shades of Grey films, one would think that Universal Pictures would be happy. This isn't to »

10+ Years Later: Can The Mummy Returns Withstand The Test Of Time?

22 June 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

When I saw Stephen Sommers' fun creature feature Deep Rising, back in 1998, I immediately added him to the list of directors to keep an eye on. That was because I had an absolute blast with the film, warts and all, even though many of my friends thought it was garbage. Two things in particular had tickled my fancy: I liked that it contained characters who had a fun chemistry with each other, and I loved that the film deployed a strange timing with regards to the jokes. Especially bad jokes depend on timing and delivery, and apparently Stephen Sommers and I just happened to share the same sense of rhythm. So when early reports on Aint-It-Cool-News told that Sommers' next film The Mummy looked...

Why Tom Cruise Doesn’t Compare to Brendan Fraser in The Mummy

20 June 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Technically, The Mummy hasn’t flopped. After all, it has managed to more than make back its production budget through foreign proceeds. However, it is clear that its reception in Canada and the United States was less than spectacular, seeing as how it has made less than $60 million so far in spite of a $125 million production budget. Summed up, The Mummy will make a profit, but this performance is not what most people would consider an auspicious beginning to Universal Studios’s Dark Universe. There are a number of reasons why The Mummy cannot compare to its 1999 counterpart. For

Bo Report: 'Despicable Me 3' wins while 'Rough Night' misses

'Despicable Me 3'..

Universal/Illumination Entertainment.s Despicable Me 3 was an emphatic No. 1 at Australian cinemas last weekend, easily beating Sony.s bawdy buddy comedy Rough Night.

Illustrating the challenges facing Australian and other small independent films, director Pete Gleeson.s confronting observational documentary Hotel Coolgardie struggled to find audiences.

None of the other limited new releases including The Promise, Punjab comedy Super Singh and documentaries Whitney: Can I Be Me? and Risk made an impression.

The top 20 titles collected $17.4 million, up by 1.9 per cent over the previous weekend, according to Numero.

Co-directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda and featuring the voices of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig and Trey Parker, Despicable Me 3 rang up a terrific $5.9 million on 456 screens, 20 per cent bigger than the second edition's debut and the third best in June for an animated title behind Toy Story 3 and Finding Dory.

Critics Slam ‘The Book of Henry’ as ‘Beatriz at Dinner’ and ‘Paris Can Wait’ Expand Well

18 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the specialty box office, reviews can have a huge impact. This weekend, “The Book of Henry” (Focus Features), Colin Trevorrow’s return to indie films, was scorched by critics and summoned only a mediocre start in 579 theaters ($1.4 million). On the other hand, the best per-theater-average came from “Hare Krishna” (Abramorama), a documentary the New York Times, normally critical in launching any specialized release, chose not to include among its reviews. It managed over $21,000 in one Manhattan theater.

While IFC’s Northern Ireland political story “The Journey” also delivered a surprisingly strong New York opening, the most encouraging news of the weekend was the impressive expansion for “Beatriz at Dinner” (Roadside Attractions).

Opening

The Book of Henry (Focus) – Metacritic: 28

$1,407,000 in 579 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $2,431

Trevorrow broke out with Sundance indie “Safety Not Guaranteed,” which grossed a healthy $4 million, followed by blockbuster “Jurassic World.” This anemic personal project will »

‘The Mummy’ (2017) Film Review

14 June 2017 8:20 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Jesse Miller,

MoreHorror.com

The first in what will be the Dark Universe, a cinematic world sharing new takes on Universal’s creatures, The Mummy is a weird mix of classical horror and adventure tropes with the Tom Cruise Actioner that is spectacle and action.

The first half of the film establishes the creepy nature of The Mummy herself, Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella), while introducing us to our present cast, among them the roguish soldier Nick Morton (Tom Cruise), who stumbles upon Ahmanet’s prison beneath the surface.

Things are suitably creepy in this first half. There’s ghostly hallucinations, soul-sucking and strange seductive daydreams, all wonderfully presented with impressive set design and exciting visuals.

The film shifts into horror as the audience and Nick Morton learn more about this Ahmanet while she’s on a quest of her own, to find her chosen. There’s jump scares »

Box Office Democracy: The Mummy

14 June 2017 5:41 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

You would think Universal would be happy with the money they’re making.

The last two Fast & Furious movies made over a billion dollars each.  They were the top grossing studio in 2015 and this year are on track for a second place finish.  No one is worried about the studio going broke or the lot being shut down or even serious cutbacks at their amusement parks.  Things are good.  I have no idea why they feel the need to invest so much in this Dark Universe nonsense that gave us this version of The Mummy.

They take what could be a perfectly good story about a scary, driven, magical lady mummy and fill it with exposition for movies that won’t be out for years and a “shared universe” with nothing anyone has any real attachment to.  There’s no one out there dying for a Creature From the Black Lagoon reboot, »

'The Mummy'..

Universal.s The Mummy reboot was No. 1 in 45 markets last weekend, ranking as the best debut ever for Tom Cruise worldwide, beating Steven Spielberg.s 2005 sci-fi thriller War Of The Worlds. However, Aussie moviegoers were rather less impressed.

The first film in the Dark Universe series opened in second spot, trailing the second outing of Warner Bros. Wonder Woman;.mirroring the Us results last weekend.

The top 20 titles rang up $20.9 million.—.up 16 per cent on the previous week.—.boosted by the Queen.s Birthday holiday, according to Numero.

Director Patty Jenkins. Wonder Woman is benefitting from overwhelming positive media attention and word of mouth, bagging $7.1 million over the 4-day weekend (down just 5 per cent) on 282 screens to reach $16 million.

Even though The Mummy has been crucified by the critics, it hasn't stopped the Alex Kurtzman-directed creature feature from pocketing $US172.3 million internationally, led by China.s $52.4 million. »

Why Brendan Fraser Didn't Show Up in The Mummy Reboot

12 June 2017 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures kicked off its Dark Universe this past weekend with The Mummy reboot, which brings the iconic franchise to present day. This horror series stretches all the way back to 1932 with The Mummy, which starred Boris Karloff, although most fans are most familiar with the 1999 version of The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. While there was a reference to the 1999 film, some fans were wondering why there wasn't at least a cameo from Brendan Fraser as Rick O'Connell, but it turns out there's a perfectly good reason for that.

Last week, we reported that this reboot is connected to Brendan Fraser's Mummy, without featuring the actor himself. This entire Dark Universe centers around a corporation known as Prodigium, lead by Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe), and we see at its London headquarters that they have assembled a number of artifacts from various creatures throughout the years, »

Newswire: Weekend Box Office: Did The Mummy just put a nail in the Dark Universe coffin?

12 June 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

“Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters,” says Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll as Nick Fury around the midway mark of last week’s The Mummy. In case the prominent “Dark Universe” logo at the onset of the opening credits didn’t make it clear enough, Crowe was there to remind audiences that the dopey Tom Cruise vehicle we were all watching was meant to be the kickoff entry in Universal’s new creature-feature mega-franchise. But is the Dark Universe even going to happen at this point? That depends on how Universal wants to crunch the numbers.

Here in the States, The Mummy is a disappointment. It opened in second place with $32.2 million—less than all three of the Brendan Fraser Mummy movies made out the gate, a pretty soft start for a film that cost $125 million, and hardly the Iron Man-sized foundation hit ...

Patty Jenkins 4 Superman

Having scored the best-reviewed Dceu entry with Wonder Woman – which dropped only 45% in its second week – director Patty Jenkins has been talking about other characters she’d like to tackle. In a Reddit Ama, Jenkins told her fans, “It’s no secret that I love Superman but right now I’m just happy doing Wonder Woman.” The Man of Steel sequel is still without a director, but Jenkins will likely have her hands full with Wonder Woman 2. Read more here.

Then There’S All The Running…. And Screaming…

While it got good reviews upon its release, there were those who felt Jurassic World was not scary enough. However original-director-turned-producer Colin Trevorrow has said that the scares will grow in Jurassic World 2. “J.A Bayona is very good at [creating scares],” states Trevorrow. “There are things that he’ll just do with a shadow, or a rustling curtain on a wall. »

Brendan Fraser: the lost movie star?

11 June 2017 2:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jun 15, 2017

Brendan Fraser seemed on the verge of being a major movie star in the late 1990s. But it never came to be. We look at why…

I remember going in to watch 1994’s Airheads at the cinema, at the time tempted to do so more by the name of Michael Lehmann on the end credits than Adam Sandler and Brendan Fraser above the title. Steve Buscemi’s presence helped too, of course. But Lehmann had, after all, come to the project off the back of the unfairly maligned Hudson Hawk, and also, this is the man who gave the world Heathers. Can’t grumble with that.

I’d not seen Brendan Fraser on the big screen before, although even by this stage, he’d earned some currency. Encino Man – California Man in the UK – had overcome savage reviews to prove a decent hit. School Ties, that I »

‘Wonder Woman’ Rules — and While Tom Cruise is Not a Flop, He’s No Longer in Control

11 June 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wonder Woman” (Warner Bros.) built on its strong opening with a better than average second-weekend hold. The Patty Jenkins-directed D.C. Comic world entry is looking at strong foreign results, but it’s the domestic take where the response is strongest.

The same can’t be said for Universal’s attempt at a new series of classic monster character movies. “The Mummy” with Tom Cruise at the lead reinforced the big story for many top studio releases this summer so far. Foreign is strong initially, but domestic is weak even by relatively modest estimates.

In an otherwise unexceptional weekend, two wide releases — “It Comes At Night” (A24) and “Megan Leavey” (Bleecker Street) — from distributors usually associated with the specialized market placed in the top 10. Neither was stellar, but added about $10 million to the total. At this point, the boost is needed.

‘The Mummy’ Dies Domestically but Finds Life Overseas

11 June 2017 10:47 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s strangely appropriate that Universal’s “The Mummy” features Dr. Jekyll, as the film has received Jekyll-and-Hyde box office results with a weak domestic start and record-setting overseas receipts. Against a budget of $160 million, “The Mummy” only grossed an estimated $32.2 million domestically, putting it $25 million behind the $57.2 million second frame estimate posted by “Wonder Woman.” That’s a lower opening than every installment of Brendan Fraser’s “Mummy” films. Even the lowest-performing film in that franchise, the Dwayne Johnson spin-off “The Scorpion King,” had a $36 million opening back in 2002.
