It’s Alive…Universal Monsters Are Back!

18 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Universal Studios was home to some of the most iconic horror movies of the twentieth century, including Frankenstein, The Bride Of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Creature From The Black Lagoon and Dracula. Acting legends Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and Lon Chaney. Jr lurched, stumbled and swooped across our screens, spawning a thousand nightmares and Halloween costumes.

Now it looks like the studio is planning a relaunch. Universal dipped its toe into its bank of monsters previously of course, with Van Helsing and The Wolfman among others. But this new project will present a unified approach.

At the moment Alex Kurtzman (Transformers, Star Trek, The Amazing Spider-man) and Chris Morgan (The Fast And The Furious) are on board. First Universal Monster to get the modern treatment is The Mummy, pencilled in for 2016.

So horror fans, is this good or bad news? Will you be doing the monster mash or diving »

17 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) -- a.k.a. Star-Lord -- and a group of misfits who call themselves the “Guardians of the Galaxy” set aside their criminal ways and squabbling in order to save the galaxy from an alien overlord named Ronan (The Hobbit’s Lee Pace). But before that even gets started, a Ronan-loyal hunter by the name of Korath (Blood Diamond’s Djimon Hounsou) captures Peter -- and to make things worse, he doesn’t know who “Star-Lord” is.

Guardians of the Galaxy also stars Zoe Saldana (Star Trek) as the assassin Gamora, Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) and Vin Diesel (The Fast and the Furious) as the bounty hunters Rocket and Groot, and WWE’s David Bautista as the superhuman Drax.

Universal Reveal Plans to Launch Connected Universe Featuring Classic Movie Monsters

16 July 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Universal Pictures is a studio light on franchises, hence why they’re moving ahead with a sequel to the underwhelming Bourne movie starring Jeremy Renner and have decided to team with Legendary Pictures for a sequel to box office flop, Pacific Rim. Of course, they still have the Fast & Furious movies, while Jurassic World looks set to introduce a whole new generation of moviegoers to that franchise.

Regardless, the studio has now made the smart decision to take advantage of their library of classic and iconic movie monsters which includes the likes of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature Of The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, and The Mummy.

It was revealed last night that, “Universal is now dedicating renewed resources and an unprecedented, far-reaching commitment to revitalize its monster heritage.” In order to do this, they’ve enlisted the help of Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan »

Universal Looking to Officially Bring Back its Monsters

16 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We've seen reboots of some Universal classics like The Mummy and The Wolfman before, and we even have things like Dracula Untold on the horizon. Now the house that monsters built is looking to revere its monstrous franchises anew!

According to Deadline the studio is in early stages of developing a substantial new production endeavor that will expand and unify a network of classic characters and stories. The architects of that narrative will be Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan.

Kurtzman recently broke with partner Roberto Orci, but his big-scale projects have included Transformers, Star Trek, and The Amazing Spider-Man. Morgan is the writer behind five installments of The Fast and the Furious, which has been Universal’s most reliably lucrative franchise. It’s not set in stone yet if either will write, but they will soon be going around town enlisting talent to bring new cinematic life to these enduring characters from lore, »

Blu-ray Review – The Driver (1978)

14 July 2014 5:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Driver, 1978.

Written and Directed by Walter Hill.

Starring Ryan O’Neal, Bruce Dern, Isabelle Adjani and Ronee Blakley.

Synopsis:

The Driver is the cat and mouse story of a professional wheelman (Ryan O’Neal) and the eccentric cop (Bruce Dern) who has become obsessed with putting his man behind bars.

This was my first time watching The Driver and even though it’s over 35 years old, this Walter Hill directed classic easily stands the test of time. It’s impressive not just because it holds, but because you can clearly feel its influence on pretty every car chase movie since. The obvious example being the Nicholas Winding Refn thriller Drive due to its lead characters being almost identical, as well as the opening scenes sharing a distinct familiarity.

It’s not just Drive though, The Driver’s influence can be felt on everything from The Fast and the Furious and The Transporter, »

Steven Spielberg Reluctant to Hire an Outsider to Replace Stacey Snider (Exclusive)

8 July 2014 6:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With Stacey Snider’s planned exit from DreamWorks, the co-chair and CEO has handed off the day-to-day creative reins to production president Holly Bario, who is one of the lead candidates to succeed the executive when her contract expires at year end.

Steven Spielberg has met with potential hires, including former Lionsgate and Paramount executive Allison Shearmur (who is out of the running), but has not settled on anyone and may wind up sticking with his current leadership team when Snider departs for a new job at Fox, according to people familiar with the situation.

At Fox, Snider will serve as top lieutenant to studio chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos and provide creative oversight to Fox’s various production divisions.

Meanwhile, at DreamWorks, Spielberg has been working closely with Bario to bolster his comfort level with the executive. At the same time, the filmmaker has become more hands-on in the »

It’s Hard Out Here for an Original Franchise: ‘Pacific Rim’’s Plight

6 July 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Not two weeks ago, famed auteur and Pacific Rim director Guillermo Del Toro set the internet ablaze when he announced the confirmation of a follow up to his 2013 robots vs. monsters film Pacific Rim and dated Pacific Rim 2 for April 7, 2017. The biggest surprise wasn’t the official announcement of the sequel though, it was the announcement of the comics and animated series that would be produced leading up to 2017: They are using all their weapons at their disposal and are really trying to make this franchise stick. They’re in for a tough time though, as there’s no question it’s never been harder to get an original franchise made in today’s day and age of reboots/sequels of pre-existing properties. But maybe Guillermo Del Toro realizes the tagline of Pacific Rim holds some truth. “To fight monsters we created monsters” – or in this case, “to fight franchises, »

Everything mentioned from 2000 and 2001 in VH1's 'I Love the 2000s'

17 June 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Before VH1′s I Love the 2000s special began on June 17, I polled my roommates (whom I forced to watch with me) about their favorite pop culture moments from the year 2000. For about three minutes, everyone was stumped—what’s actually from the year 2000, instead of just under the umbrella term “the 2000s”? It turns out that remembering specific years is a lot harder than you think.

That’s why there’s a saving grace to VH1′s nostalgia-bait series, a 10-part anthology spread out over five days this week. It’s hugely entertaining to hear no-name comedians praise specific »
