Fox’s Weak Home Video Sales Depress Revenues In December Quarter

14 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Home videos sales for The Maze Runner and Fantastic 4 in the last three months of 2015 couldn’t match late 2014’s X-Men, How To Train Your Dragon and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes — and contributed to a mixed year-end report for Fox. The company generated $672 million in net income, which isn’t easily comparable to the $6.28 billion from the end of 2014 which included one-time benefits from the sale of the company’s satellite businesses to Sky. Revenues came in at $7.38… »

Superhero Showdown 2016 – Deadpool vs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice vs Captain America: Civil War vs X-Men: Apocalypse vs Suicide Squad vs Doctor Strange

17 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson on the 2016 superhero box office showdown…

We’re used to seeing three or four superhero movies each year, but 2016 sees Hollywood’s infatuation with costumed heroes making the jump to ludicrous speed with Six superhero movies set to grace the big screen (it would have been seven, had Fox been able to get its act together on Gambit). But which one will come out on top? Here’s our predictions for this year’s Superhero Showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

As always, we’ll get things underway with a quick recap of last year, which saw Marvel bringing the curtain down on Phase Two with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, and 20th Century Fox killing the Fantastic Four franchise again with the disasterous reboot from director Josh Trank.

Last Year’s Prediction – “While it should comfortably double the combined take of Ant-Man and The Fantastic Four, »

“We own your childhood.” – Bob Iger

There was a lot of talk last year about whether the superhero bubble had burst. Avengers: Age of Ultron made less than its predecessor, Ant-Man’s opening weekend was Marvel’s second lowest, and Fantastic Four was, well, not that fantastic.

Enter Disney chairman Bob Iger – the man who ultimately decides the fate of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (think Corporate Thanos). He said the McU will “go on forever, »

The Good and Bad of a Marvel and Star Wars Crossover Movie

24 January 2016 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at the possibility of a combined Star Wars/McU movie…

This week Stan Lee talked about the possibility of a Marvel/Star Wars crossover movie. It’s a tantalising prospect that throws up so many potential plot lines and will excite as many people as it infuriates.

As both Marvel and Lucasfilm are now owned by Disney, it’s a possibility, albeit it a remote one, though you can guarantee that some studio accountant has done a presentation that combined box office figures for Star Wars and McU films (around $7 billion dollars and counting) in an attempt to get the movie green lit. There are of course several hurdles to overcome before it becomes a reality.

First of all, the films in the McU are, more or less, set now, on Earth, whereas quite famously, Star Wars takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, »

Lucky Man: can Stan Lee help Sky hit the jackpot?

22 January 2016 2:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Marvel man behind Spider-Man and X-Men has created a new series starring James Nesbitt as a cop whose fortunes turn around after meeting Sienna Guillory

Stan Lee, as he regularly reminds the world, has had a hand in creating some of the most enduring icons in popular culture, including Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four and scores of other heroes and villains. The majority of these characters have been around for more than 50 years but, thanks to a recent, movie-powered spike in hero worship, they remain wildly popular and profitable properties in 2016 (well, maybe not Fantastic Four). No wonder Sky wanted to collaborate with the seemingly tireless 93-year-old who, thanks to a series of Marvel film cameos, has arguably become as iconic as his creations. The result of their synergistic team-up, Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, starts tonight on Sky1.

Does This Ant-Man Easter Egg Explain How Marvel Will Introduce The Fantastic Four?

19 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel

Fant4stic was terrible. How terrible? Forget single-digit RottenTomatoes scores and box office-ruining tweets – the moment fans saw its sloppy production and napkin script, they were immediately clamouring for the rights of the characters to revert back to Marvel. Of course, six months on that doesn’t seem as likely. To retain the rights, Fox only need to make a new movie every few years, so appear to be just retiring the team and hoping that by the time we get the contractually-mandated fourth attempt at the characters everyone’s forgotten the Josh Trank disaster.

But don’t despair just yet – they may have to play the waiting game, but it looks like Marvel have actually already started setting up a situation where their First Family can appear in the McU without breaking the internal logic. You see, in the comics, it was the emergence of the Fantastic Four that »

Top 10 Disappointing Films Of 2015

18 January 2016 2:26 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2015 offered some terrific films for audiences – The Martian, Creed, Straight Outta Compton, Brooklyn and Star Wars: The Force Awakens to name a few. They were huge crowd-pleasers and very successful at the box office. But not every movie connected with audiences this past year, as much as we wanted them to.

Wamg takes a look at the past 12 months and the movies that we really wanted to love, but just couldn’t. Here we go with our Top 10 list of the Most Disappointing Films of 2015.

Dishonorable Mention: Seventh Son

It’s hard to decipher exactly what Jeff Bridges is saying under his accent that sounds like a cross between Gandalf and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. And that is only one of the many problems with this film. Seventh Son is nothing but hallow, visual clutter that is cobbled together to form something that struggles to appeal to the »

Mindy Newell is Just Ramblin’ On

18 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Sometimes a writer can sit in front of the computer screen for hours, fingers poised on the keyboard, and – nothing happens. Not a word, not a syllable. Not a random thought, not a brainstorm. There’s not one single idea that can be expanded upon, not a hint of anything that seems at least remotely interesting.

Hmm, here’s something.

Did you read Denny’s column last week, the one about the Mighty Marvel Method? This writer came late to that particular game; in fact, I didn’t even know it existed, and the first time I heard the words “Marvel style” – another way to describe the “method” – I didn’t have a clue, though I was familiar with what a “script” was, having read numerous plays, including a whole lotta Shakespeare, in high school and college. I do think that, for novices, the best way to learn how to »

Michael B. Jordan is Playing Chicken with Another 'Fantastic Four' Film

15 January 2016 7:50 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Michael B. Jordan is one of the few cast members to come out of "Fan4stic" unscathed. After the film completely collapsed under its own weight and bombed at the box office, he left the situation and went on to star in Creed, a film that has done a complete 180 on his career. Now, he's doing so well, that almost everyone out there thinks he should get an Oscar for his role in the acclaimed boxing flick. But after all of that, he doesn't seem to want to give up any hope of the possibility of starring in a Good Fantastic Four film. Unlike most actors who tend to star in awful comic book films, and then try to do something different, he wants to go back to that and fight the demon one last time.

Think about it. Ben Affleck was Daredevil, it bombed, and he went on to become Batman. »

Movie Review: Ride Along 2

14 January 2016 9:01 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It made sense that we got the buddy cop film Ride Along (2014) starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. A film for them to work off such different personalities; they always seemed like a perfect duo. Coming from director Tim Story, who should be most remembered for making one of the few misses in the Marvel Universal with Fantastic Four (2004), Ride Along was such an unoriginal ride that it wasted both Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. Not much has changed in Ride Along 2.

Even with issues in their careers, actors Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are talented. Ice Cube came to fame due to his hip hop group N.W.A in the late 1980s to early 1990s and in his feature film Boyz N the Hood; both things ahead of their time and so accurate on predicting the escalation in police brutality. For someone who started in the music industry, »

Ioan Gruffudd’s Forever: The Complete Series Arrives Tuesday

The 36th Razzie Awards nominations have been announced

13 January 2016 9:40 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Yesterday, the 36th annual Razzie Awards nominations were announced by the The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. It is tradition that the Razzies, which celebrate the worst movies of the year, are nominated just before the Oscar nominations, which celebrate the best films of the year. The Oscar nominations will be announced in Los Angeles later this afternoon, but the Razzie nominations have already been released.

We’re afraid its bad news for Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kayley Cuoco-Sweeting.

Here is the official press release.

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year’s 36th Annual Razzie® Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year’s “berry” worst. And 2015’s acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kayley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar® winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, »

2016 Razzie Awards Nominations Are Here

13 January 2016 10:07 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year's 36th Annual Razzie Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year's "berry" worst. And 2015's acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. "Winners" will be announced in intentionally tacky ceremony scheduled for 8pm/Pst on Saturday February 27 -- Oscar eve.

The choices for Worst Picture include Fifty Shades of Grey (2015's "Most Successful Bad Movie"), Fantastic Four (a nearly instant remake that flopped with both critics and movie-goers), Jupiter Ascending (the latest sci-fi fiasco from Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (a box office hit despite its 95% negative rating at Rotten Tomatoes) and Adam Sandler's latest excuse for a movie, »

Tim Story: How the Billion-Dollar Director Scored Big With ‘Ride Along’

13 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tim Story has helmed seven feature films that have grossed nearly $1.1 billion worldwide. Six of these films debuted at No. 1 at the box office, including Universal’s 2014 action-comedy juggernaut “Ride Along,” starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, which netted more than $41 million its opening weekend and has grossed over $155 million worldwide. Two years later, its in-demand sequel, “Ride Along 2,” opening Jan. 15, is bound to bring in a hefty box office haul (“Our expectations are very high based on the strength of the movie,” says Donna Langley, chairman of Universal Pictures). To boot, Story and his wife, Vicky Mara Story, run the Story Co., an entertainment production house they jointly founded in 1996, and Story has recently inked a deal to direct the upcoming Nicki Minaj comedy project for Freeform (formerly ABC Family).

In short, to say that Tim Story is having a “moment,” would be an understatement. He’s had several. »

Kevin James, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' come up big in this year's Razzies

13 January 2016 7:51 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's the day before the Oscar nominations are announced, and that means Razzies! Yes, the nominees for the awards that celebrate the best of the worst have been announced. Not too many surprises this year: "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Jupiter Ascending," and "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" led the pack with six nominations each. Really the only surprise was that "Mortdecai" wasn't up there with them (it only got three noms). Oh, and that Julianne Moore was nominated. I didn't see "Seventh Son" but I can't imagine that she was bad enough in it to be considered one of the worst performances this year. She's Julianne Moore! And dubious congratulations are in order for Kevin James, who was nominated in several acting categories for his work last year. Winners will be announced on February 27 -- as always, the night before the Oscars are handed out. Worst Picture "Fantastic Four"  "Fifty Shades of Grey »

2016 Razzies Nominations: It's a Four-Way Tie for the Worst

13 January 2016 5:53 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yes, it's that time of the year again! The day before Hollywood pats itself on the back with Oscar nominations, the Razzies show up to remind everyone why Hollywood deserves a few raspberries with the champagne.

Besides as Jean-Ralphio could tell you, there's nothing more fun than honoring the wooooorst:

This year, there's a four-way tie for the dubious honor of most Razzie Award nominations: "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Pixels," "Jupiter Ascending," and "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" got six nods. That, at least, is some small consolation for "Fantastic Four," which walked away with "only" five nominations. And "Pan," "Mortdecai," and "Human Centipede 3" were seriously let off the hook. (Hook -- get it? The worst!)

Here's an exciting note: Eddie Redmayne has a chance to win both an Oscar and a Razzie in the same year, since the reigning Best Actor winner will probably be nominated again for "The Danish Girl »

The 10 Best Film Scores of 2015

3 January 2016 12:57 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Far be it from me to disagree with our staff, but I would hard-pressed to name 30 films from 2015 that I would consider among the “best” of the year.

The same can’t be said for film music, though. As predictable as each superhero template or franchise reboot may have been this year, composers keep finding new ways to reinvent the sounds of the cinema. Not to mention that the ever-widening landscape of VOD and streaming service-produced projects has increased the room with which artists can flex their musical chops.

2015 was an embarrassment of movie score riches. In indie horror gem Bone Tomahawk, Jeff Herriott & S. Craig Zahler inject hope and despair into a bleak, cannibal-stricken Wild West, where feeling anything is better than the unflinching mortality facing its characters. Patrick Doyle’s warmhearted Cinderella continued Disney’s tradition of attaching amazing scores to frivolous live-action do-overs, while on the other end of the spectrum, »
