Wonder Woman becomes highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director

24 June 2017 2:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having become the first female filmmaker to direct a movie with a budget of $100 million, and the first to have a movie debut with a domestic opening weekend of $100 million, Patty Jenkins has now added another feather to her cap with Wonder Woman’s latest box office milestone.

The DC blockbuster has now reached $615 million worldwide, meaning it has overtaken 2009’s Mamma Mia! to become the highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director. The overall record is currently held by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and the animated film Kung Fu Panda 2 on $665 million, which Wonder Woman will likely overtake in the coming weeks (it should also be pointed out that Jennifer Lee co-directed Frozen with Chris Buck, and then went on to gross $1.2 billion).

Domestically, Wonder Woman has already surpassed Man of Steel’s $291 million, and is looking to finish the weekend with around $319 million, meaning it is fast approaching »

Domestically, Wonder Woman has grossed $289.2 million, with a further $312.4 million from international markets. It will hit another milestone today, overtaking the $609.8 million global total of 2008’s Mamma Mia to become the highest-grossing movie from a female director.

Despite competition from the likes of Cars 3 and Transformers: The Last Knight, Wonder Woman will also overtake Man of Steel’s domestic total this weekend and is fast closing in on its $668.0 million total.

Cannes Winning Best Actor and Lanthimos' Quirky 'Family' Thriller Academy Award Chances?

20 June 2017 7:38 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'120 Beats per Minute' trailer: Robin Campillo's AIDS movie features plenty of drama and a clear sociopolitical message. AIDS drama makes Pedro Almodóvar cry – but will Academy members tear up? (See previous post re: Cannes-Oscar connection.) In case France submits it to the 2018 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, screenwriter-director Robin Campillo's AIDS drama 120 Beats per Minute / 120 battements par minute, about the Paris Act Up chapter in the early 1990s, could quite possibly land a nomination. The Grand Prix (Cannes' second prize), international film critics' Fipresci prize, and Queer Palm winner offers a couple of key ingredients that, despite its gay sex scenes, should please a not insignificant segment of the Academy membership: emotionalism and a clear sociopolitical message. When discussing the film after the presentation of the Palme d'Or, Pedro Almodóvar (and, reportedly, jury member Jessica Chastain) broke into tears. Some believed, in fact, that 120 Beats per Minute »

Warner Bros. president suggests Wonder Woman 2 could be set in the past, Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns writing script

20 June 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the success of Wonder Woman, attention is already starting to turn to the future – not just the character’s appearance in other Dceu properties, but the inevitable sequel to her own solo movie.

Wonder Woman was set during Wwi and naturally speculation has arisen of just when and where the sequel would take place. Luckily for us, Toby Emmerich, the Warner Bros. chief, has commented on the very subject, saying that it will likely be set in the past, however he was a little vague on the specifics.

Confirming to Variety that Wonder Woman 2 wouldn’t be another Wwi piece, he said rather coyly that: “It will take place somewhere between 1917 and 2017”.

That timeframe doesn’t rule out WWII as a potential setting, but also allows for a whole host of options, so really, thanks for nothing, Emmerich.

Meanwhile, DC Films co-chief Geoff Johns went on to reveal that »

Wonder Woman on track to break into top 10 highest grossing superhero films

20 June 2017 12:43 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Gal Gadot-headlined Wonder Woman is on track to become one of the top ten highest grossing superhero films of all time at the domestic box office.

The success of Wonder Woman has been well reported, with fans and audiences at last in tune with one another, and the movie bringing in the cash around the world.

According to Box Office Mojo, Wonder Woman has recently crossed $275 million in the Us which currently situates it at number 17 in the list of highest grossing superhero movies.

This puts the movie about $90 million behind the film currently in possession of that tenth spot, Deadpool. And according to analysis from Caped Crusader, Wonder Woman should be on track to surpass it.

Taking into consideration Wonder Woman’s impressively small weekend to weekend drops – just 43.3% from its first weekend to its second – and the very good word of mouth the film is receiving, »

Gal Gadot’s salary for Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman and Justice League revealed

20 June 2017 1:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Reports are coming in from The Daily Dot that Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot has earned a salary of $300,000 per film for last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, her recently released solo feature, and the upcoming Justice League.

For comparison, Henry Cavill made a whopping $14 million for playing Superman in Man of Steel alone. However, while there may seem like a hugely unfair pay gap here, it’s also worth noting that Chris Evans was paid the same exact sum for Captain America: The First Avenger. On the flipside, Robert Downey Jr. made upwards to $50 million from The Avengers alone, not only because he is the primary star of the McU, but also because his contract has guarantees in place that includes backend compensation and bonuses for box office milestones.

The Daily Dot article goes on to speculate that Gadot will also likely have a clause in »

Wonder Woman climbs to $570 million at the worldwide box office

18 June 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have lost top spot in the U.S. to Disney-Pixar’s Cars 3, but Warner Bros.’ DC blockbuster Wonder Woman continues to impress at the box office, having pushed its worldwide haul to $571.8 million worldwide.

Wonder Woman dropped just 30% domestically this weekend, grossing $40.8 million and pushing its North American cume to $274.6 million. The film has added a further $297.2 million internationally, and will soon overtake 2008’s Mamma Mia ($609.8 million) to become the highest-grossing movie from a female director.

In terms of the Dceu, Wonder Woman currently trails Man of Steel ($668.0 million), and while it will certainly face some stiff competition this coming week from Transformers: The Last Knight, it’s still possible that the Amazon Princess’ solo debut could overtake the Superman reboot.

Wonder Woman artwork shows the origin of the Amazons and Themyscira

17 June 2017 1:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Artist Houston Sharp has released his rather splendid paintings produced for Warner Bros.’ DC blockbuster Wonder Woman, which were used to illustrate Queen Hippolyta’s story to the young Diana about the origin of the Amazons, Ares’ betrayal of the gods and defeat at the hands of Zeus, and the creation of Themyscira.

“I had the pleasure and honor of working with Patty Jenkins and her team to create the animated painting at the beginning of Wonder Woman,” states Sharp. “It was a huge undertaking, but I had a small team of super-talented artists to help finish it on time, and Patty & Co. were very supportive along the way. Each panel was painted separately, and stitched together into one massive painting. We tried achieving a classical oil painting look, while working in a way that was easy for the animators to work with (which meant keeping everything on their own layers, »

Hans Zimmer donates concert proceeds to Grenfell Tower relief fund

16 June 2017 5:03 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

German composer tweets: “We stand with you London.”

Composer Hans Zimmer is donating all proceeds from a London concert to the relief fund set up for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

The Oscar-winning German composer of Gladiator, The Lion King and The Dark Knight made the announcement during his performance at London’s Sse Arena in Wembley on Thursday evening (15 June).

Zimmer and his 15 piece studio band paid tribute to the victims of the catastrophic blaze which has so far claimed the lives of 17 people.

He said during the concert: “We are all London” and later tweeted “We Stand With You London.”

The revered composer received a standing ovation from audience members, including film director Ron Howard whose past films have been scored by Zimmer.

Other figures from the music industry to have responded to the incident include singer Adele, who visited the scene of the tragedy, and producer »

Wonder Woman is the fourth-highest grossing action heroine

15 June 2017 1:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wonder Woman has become the fourth-highest grossing action heroine at the Us domestic box office.

The latest DC movie is going over a treat with fans all over the world, and critics are on board too, providing a stark contrast to the other movies in the Dceu franchise.

And the good news isn’t stopping for Wonder Woman, as the film has now climbed the domestic charts, making Wonder Woman herself the fourth highest grossing action heroine ever (via Box Office Mojo).

Wonder Woman currently has a total of $221,460,634, putting Diana in fourth place behind the Hunger Games’ Katniss, Jyn Erso of Rogue One, and Rey of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Wonder Woman is quite some way off moving up a spot with Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 $60 million ahead at this present time.

However, this is certainly great news for the character and for the movie, and with more sequels bound to follow, »

The film, a sequel to 2012’s Prometheus and the sixth in the Alien film series, follows the crew of the colony ship Covenant as they discovered the ruins of the doomed Prometheus expedition on a remote planet.

Elena Anaya would be happy to return as Doctor Poison in Wonder Woman 2

13 June 2017 10:42 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Wonder Woman has received unanimous praise, one of the few agreed-upon missteps – once again for the superhero genre – was weak villains, with equally weak character definition and motives. One of the bright spots here, however, was the arguably underutilized Doctor Poison, played by Elena Anaya; she seems to be being used and emotionally manipulated for evil making her somewhat sympathetic, and apparently, she could return for the film’s sequel.

Speaking to The Verge on if she’s contractually obligated for a sequel, Anaya enthusiastically explained: “Yes yes yes. But I have no answer for that. As you know, when these movies are made, they ask you basically to marry them for the rest of your life. [Laughs] I’d be so happy to be back, to be able to be evil again. It’s so good, it’s so fantastic.”

So far we know that the inevitable Wonder Woman sequel will be set America, »

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins understands both sides to the women-only screening debate

13 June 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For those unaware, theater chain Alamo Drafhouse decided to host some women-only screenings of Wonder Woman as a one night only special event kind of deal. The decision sparked much debate online, and now director Patty Jenkins has given her thoughts on the situation.

Speaking to Southern California Public Radio’s The Frame, Jenkins stated that: “I actually have sort of mixed feelings about all of that only because I do believe in not excluding anyone from anything. And so, on the one hand, I’m so delighted by those screenings and want people to be able to have those screenings. On the other hand I can imagine being offended if I’m excluded from those screenings, particularly because Wonder Woman herself has a very, very passionate fan base, many of whom are men. And many of whom are men who are disenfranchised from their own gender or their own identity. »

Patty Jenkins would like to direct a Superman movie

10 June 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wonder Woman is currently crushing the box-office worldwide, and receiving rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Given the critical reception to Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad, it seems that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins may have single-handedly saved the DC Extended Universe. With that said, it’s safe to say that Patty Jenkins will remain a fixture over at Warner Bros. for as long as she likes.

So, given the chance, what other DC solo movies would Patty Jenkins like to tackle? During a recent Reddit Ama, the director gave her choice: “It’s no secret that I love Superman but right now I’m just happy doing Wonder Woman.”

It’s certain that most fans are happy that She is happy “just doing Wonder Woman“. Still, her answer is not at all surprising; Many have compared Wonder Woman to Richard Donner’s Superman. While we hope that »

From The Mummy to Gladiator, Check Out Russell Crowe's Best Roles

9 June 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When Russell Crowe is involved, it's obvious we're in for something epic. The Academy Award-winning actor takes on the role of Dr. Henry Jekyll in The Mummy, in which he lends aid to protagonist Nick Morton, portrayed by Tom Cruise. If Crowe's past roles are any indication, The Mummy is set to not only be one of the biggest movies of the year, but another captivating action film to add to the Russell Crowe canon. Crowe's filmography, spanning nearly three decades, includes blockbusters like Gladiator, for which he won an Oscar for Best Actor, a thought-provoking true story in A Beautiful Mind and even Crowe's singing of some of the most iconic Broadway songs in Les Misérables.

Patty Jenkins says she only reshot one scene for Wonder Woman

8 June 2017 2:54 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the build up to the release of Wonder Woman, director Patty Jenkins revealed that the final cut of the DC blockbuster was almost identical to what she originally shot, and that very little changed from her rough cut during the post-production process. However, it seems that we did get one extra scene during the reshoots, with Jenkins telling THR that she decided to add a single sequence during Diana’s march towards the front lines.

“I wanted to ramp that tension as much as possible, and unfortunately, we didn’t have it,” said Jenkins, who became the first female director to have a movie open with over $100 million at the domestic box office. “That scene was just a slightly tense scene of them walking. I was like ‘I need her to see some brutality.’ So, we added her seeing the horses being whipped. It was actually something that had been in the script originally. »

In today's daily movie news we've got a brand new trailer, a handful of fresh clips, and a bad-ass new poster coming your way!

Both the first poster and trailer dropped today for American Made! This one follows a pilot who lands work for the CIA as a drug runner in the south during the 1980s. The film reunites Tom Cruise with director Doug Liman who previously made Edge of Tomorrow with Cruise (a movie we Highly reccomend if you haven't seen it), so we know this one will have you on the edge of your seat. Think of Blow meeting The Wolf of Wall Street and you've got American Made.
