1999’s Inspector Gadget, and its hugely underappreciated gag

14 August 2017 6:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Aug 15, 2017

There's an end credits gag in Inspector Gadget that's up there with much of what Marvel offers you once the film's over...

Lots of people don’t like the Inspector Gadget movie. Released in 1999, Disney certainly had high hopes for it, earmarking it as a key blockbuster for that year. Tellingly, though, Rupert Everett would not inaccurately describe the film as “the $100m mess” in his memoir, Red Carpets And Other Banana Skins.

He went further. Talking about the elongated days of shooting on the movie, he wrote that “behind the scenes lurked a panel of executives, each with their own theory and agenda. A string of writers had written version after version, each adding to our scripts on a different-coloured paper, each one losing the plot a little bit more, so that by the end, or rather the beginning, they had managed between them to render »

The Mummy Review: Not A Bad Way To Start A Dark Universe

9 June 2017 3:13 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Mummy seemed like a cash grab from the moment it was announced. Universal has been trying to launch a universe of their own, featuring classic movie monsters associated with the studio, including Frankenstein, the Wolfman, and the Invisible Man, for years. The Mummy is essentially the studio going "all in" to jump start what is now called Dark Universe. Casting a star as large as Tom Cruise initially read as an attempt to make up for shortcomings in other areas. When you don't have much else, attach the biggest movie star in the world, and your film will sell (maybe)! Additionally, though the first movie came out in 1999, the Brendan Fraser lead Mummy franchise is still fresh enough in the public's mind that starting a new universe with The Mummy seemed like a strange choice. So, is The Mummy just another ill-advised attempt to launch a universe, cashing in »

’Godzilla vs. Kong’ Monster Mash-Up Movie Grabs Indie Filmmaker Adam Wingard to Direct

31 May 2017 6:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Indie horror wunderkind Adam Wingard has signed on to direct the next blockbuster in Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment’s growing monster franchise, “Godzilla Vs. Kong.”

Quite prolific at 34-years-old, Wingard cut his teeth on micro-budget horrors “Pop Skull” and “A Horrible Way to Die,” often working with indie mainstay Joe Swanberg. His more recent film, “The Guest,” starred Dan Stevens and premiered at Sundance in 2014. He has been moving into bigger budget indies with his last two projects, a 2016 follow-up to “Blair Witch,” and “Death Note,” a manga adaptation set for an August release.

Godzilla Vs. Kong Gets Death Note Director Adam Wingard

30 May 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After years of making a name for himself as a respected director of low-budget thrillers, filmmaker Adam Wingard will be tackling two iconic monsters next. The filmmaker has come aboard to helm Warner Bros. and Legendary's highly-anticipated monster battle Godzilla vs. Kong, which will bring together the studios' Godzilla and King Kong franchises. This move comes just a few months after the studios finalized a writers room to generate ideas for this film, Godzilla: King of Monsters and other potential movies.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today that the filmmaker has finalized his deal with Warner Bros. and Legendary. While it isn't clear exactly which writer will be working on the script for Godzilla vs. Kong, the project will come out of this talented writers room lead by Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise). The other writers in this room include Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, (Star Trek 4 »

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Taps ‘Blair Witch’ Director Adam Wingard

30 May 2017 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Guest” director Adam Wingard has been tapped to take the reigns of  “Godzilla vs. Kong.”

Terry Rossio is writing the film — a part of Legendary and Warner Bros.’ “MonsterVerse.” The announcement comes on the heels of “Kong: Skull Island” scoring at the box office with $565.6 million worldwide. The studios are prepping another sequel, “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” with Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, and Vera Farmiga on board to star.

As the title suggests, the film will pit the two massive monsters against each other. It’s still unknown at this time whether the stars of either “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” or “Skull Island” will be reprising their roles in “Godzilla vs. Kong.”

“Godzilla vs. Kong” roars into theaters on May 22, 2020.

Newswire: Johnny Depp vetoed a female villain for Pirates 5

23 May 2017 2:31 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

We like to imagine Hollywood as a precision machine, with every million-dollar decision motivated by an enlightened blend of business savvy and artistic intent, while auteurs and producers battle it out in the honest assumption that their conflicts will create masterpieces of commercial cinema. The truth, of course, is a little more blurry, as we were reminded this week via a column from prolific screenwriter Terry Rossio.

Rossio—whose credits include Shrek, the 1998 Godzilla, and a host of Disney films, including Aladdin and most of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise—revealed that his version of the script for the upcoming Pirates sequel, Dead Men Tell No Tales, featured a female villain, but the character was nixed by star Johnny Depp. Why didn’t Depp want to face off against a powerful female adversary? Because he’d already done that, a mere five years earlier.

Depp apparently cited his ...

Not only was the 1985 Making Contact directed by Stargate, Godzilla, and Independence Day‘s Roland Emmerich, but it also carries heavy Et, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Poltergeist influences, while also having been a potential inspiration behind James Wan’s films, especially Dead Silence.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Strange Invaders (1983)

8 April 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Long live Michael Laughlin. Two years after he released one of my favorite early ‘80s oddities, Strange Behavior (I wrote about it here), he was back to unleash the next chapter in a proposed ‘Strange’ trilogy, Strange Invaders (1983). And while the former is a tribute to Mad Scientist films of the ‘50s via an updated Slasher take, the latter tips its fedora to the great Alien Invasion films of the same era. It may not reach the same dizzyingly weird heights, but Strange Invaders is an affectionate romp that captures the feel of those bygone drive-in classics and solidifies Laughlin’s unique voice.

A co-production between Emi Films and Lone Wolf McQuade Associates, Strange Invaders was released by Orion Pictures in mid September stateside to positive reviews and lackluster box office. Returning only a quarter of its $5 million plus budget, this was the Way of the Laughlin – everyone liked his movies, »

WB Announces Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition On Blu-Ray

29 March 2017 10:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the Wonder Woman live action movie set to arrive in theaters in just over two months, it’s understandable that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will want to put out as much merchandise bearing the likeness of the Amazon Princess as possible. One item in particular that’s worthy of attention is that of the forthcoming Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition.

Truth be told, it’s technically not a new offering, but rather a repackaging of the amazing animated film originally released back in 2009. Unfortunately, no R-rated cut will be included as was previously reported. Despite any second guessing you may have, do know that one exists out there somewhere, as the filmmakers have admitted they had to make some alterations in order to get the PG-13 rating because, at the time, WB didn’t afford as much leeway with mature content as they do now.

Moving on to the official synopsis, »

Zombieland Director To Helm Valiant's Archer & Armstrong

24 March 2017 4:37 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

DC. Marvel. Industry giants, yet not the only names in comics. Not by a long shot.

Valiant is one such company that has been around for quite a while, founded in 1989 by former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Jim Shooter and Steven Massarsky. Like the two industry leaders, we have the Valiant Universe including such titles as X-o Manowar, Harbinger, and Shadowman. Valiant already has a five-picture deal with Sony to bring the Valiant Universe to life, including movie versions of Bloodshot and Harbinger, leading to an Avengers style event in Harbinger Wars

Heat Vision has learned that now that Valiant is developing Archer & Armstrong in house before being shopped around to studios. The project certainly won't be a hard sell, considering the talent that just joined the film.

Archer & Armstrong has already secured Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) to direct a script from Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise). Rossio is also »
