Revenge of the Auteur: As Bloated Franchises Bomb, Original Stories Own the Box Office

24 July 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When it comes to the summer movie season, late July is the new August. Now that blockbusters jockey for attention in early May, we already feel wrung out by the barrage of spectacle. And with that, an exciting new box office trend has begun to make itself known: franchise fatigue, with a twist. Audiences seem to be rejecting force-fed franchises, and instead opt to check out original material.

The numbers don’t lie. While films designed to launch brand-new franchises like “The Mummy” and “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” burned out at the domestic box office, original offerings are making big bucks. Even more compelling? Those would-be one-offs could start their own franchises.

This past weekend was won by a pair of original projects that couldn’t be more different: Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” and Malcolm D. Lee’s uproarious girls-gone-wild comedy “Girls Trip. »

Film Review: ‘First Kill’

21 July 2017 5:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Just how many people has “First Kill” star Bruce Willis killed over the course of his career? According to a site called MovieBodyCounts.com (whose statistics look to be about as accurate as a sawed-off shotgun blast), Willis has offed 116 adversaries to date. A more accurate tally is best left to someone with an appetite for action and plenty of free time on their hands — which just so happens to be the kind of person most likely to appreciate another generic collaboration between Willis and director Steven C. Miller (their third, following “Extraction” and “Marauders”).

With little to distinguish this VOD-bound Lionsgate Premiere release from so many straight-to-video thrillers, “First Kill” offers the ever-so-slight novelty of casting Willis as the bad guy. He plays a corrupt rural police chief named Howell, who’s courteous to the locals in small-town Graville, Ohio, but not above murdering them if they get between him and the loot from a recent »

M. Night Shyamalan Posts A Typically Cryptic Update For Split Sequel Glass

20 June 2017 6:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Everyone loves a good comeback story. For M. Night Shyamalan, his particular return to form began with the release of The Visit two years ago. Not only did the found footage horror movie achieve relatively positive reviews, it signalled a collaboration between Shyamalan and Blumhouse, a production house that knows a thing or two about engineering excellent, downright riveting horror films on a shoestring budget.

That partnership carried over into Split, too, which proved to be a massive hit for both Blumhouse and Universal Pictures. The end result was a $276 million haul at the international box office – on a budget of $9 million, no less – and clearance to carry on with a sequel. Its name? Glass.

Pegged for a release in January of next year, Shyamalan’s wildly ambitious creative venture is set to tie together the story strands of Split and Unbreakable, the superhero-esque prequel movie that first launched in »

Before They Were Blockbuster Directors: 8 TV Episodes by the People Behind 2017’s Biggest Films

16 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Even though the worlds of film and TV are converging more than ever before, it’s interesting to note just how many of the people behind the biggest films of the year have tried their hand at TV work in the past.

Get Out” director Jordan Peele never officially directed an episode of his long-running Comedy Central sketch show “Key & Peele,” but his debut film currently sits at No. 7 on the year’s domestic box office list. Go up and down the rest of that chart and you’ll find movies from directors who’ve made valuable contributions to TV comedies and dramas alike.

Most of these episodes were pilots or season premieres, ways for directors to help establish a template or shorthand for what governs life in front of and behind the camera for the duration of these series. While some of these filmmakers took multiple opportunities in the TV director’s seat, »

Film Review: ‘Once Upon a Time in Venice’

15 June 2017 5:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Remember “Cop Out,” 2010’s less-than-momentous clash of the action-comic stylings of Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan? If the answer is “no,” you’d be entirely forgiven, yet Willis himself appears to regard it with some measure of fondness. That’s the most plausible explanation for his headlining presence in “Once Upon a Time in Venice,” a similarly negligible but rather more chaotic caper from Mark and Robb Cullen, the fraternal duo behind the “Cop Out” screenplay. Assuming directing as well as writing duties this time, the Cullens prove no heirs to the Coens as conductors of oddball underworld mayhem, with much of their glib quippery soured by gauche minority stereotyping. What scant charms this direct-to-video-style Nineties throwback has belong mostly to Willis, as a grizzled Venice Beach gumshoe juggling a number of shaggy-dog cases, chief among them the abduction of his own literal mutt. The back alleys of ancillary and streaming await. »

12 June 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The film co-stars Jason Momoa​, Famke Janssen​, Thomas Middleditch​ and Adam Goldberg.

While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being. 

Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others.  Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-JoyThe Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all »

‘Split’ DVD Review

2 June 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Haley Lu Richardson, Jessica Sula | Written and Directed by M. Night Shyamalan

M. Night Shyamalan was once the devil prince of the movie twist, mischievously upending audiences’ expectations with increasingly contrived plot devices which retroactively flooded his films with new meaning. Breaking point arrived with The Village – not because the twist was a bad one, but because its central conceit needn’t have been a twist. His rep had reached the point of self-parody. And then we lost him down the rabbit hole.

Thankfully, the auteur returned to form with 2013’s The Visit, his first collaboration with the increasingly vital Blumhouse Productions. Turns out it’s a marriage made in haunted heaven. Split is the better movie, and one that doesn’t need any dusting for its author’s prints.

James McAvoy plays Kevin, a man suffering from – or possibly enabled by – “Dissociative Identity Disorder”. In short, »

Tales From The Crypt Remake Forced Back Into The Crypt

2 June 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Deadline is reporting that TNT will no longer be producing the reboot of Tales From The Crypt which was set to be produced by M. Night Shyamalan. After more than a year in pre-production, head of Turner Entertainment Kevin Reilly has pulled the plug on the series, instead partnering with Ridley Scott for a block of sci-fi programming instead. Kevin Reilly had this to say about the failure of the Tales From The Crypt reboot.

“That one got really caught up in a complete legal mess unfortunately with a very complicated underlying rights structure,” Reilly said of Tales From the Crypt. “We lost so much time, so I said, ‘Look, I’m not waiting around four years for this thing’. Maybe that will come back around but in the meantime, Ridley Scott had come up, who has so much creative enthusiasm.”

Dark Universe Will Include Low-Budget Monster Movies from Blumhouse

31 May 2017 10:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Next week is a big one for Universal Pictures, as they launch their Dark Universe franchise with The Mummy. The movie stars Hollywood A-listers such as Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe, along with rising stars like Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis, and with stars of this magnitude, the budget is quite large. A new report claims that the budget was $125 million, which comes after a "considerable U.K. rebate," while Tom Cruise is said to earn upwards of $13 million up front, with "sizable back end participation." While the other movies that are being developed in this franchise will likely be big-budget affairs as well, this report also claims that there may be room for some small-budget movies.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that micro-budget producer Jason Blum has "expressed interest" in shepherding a low-budget entry into this monster universe. This report also claims that Universal has a few advantages over other "shared universes, »
