Conan The Barbarian Screenwriter Reveals What It's Like To See Your Movie Flop

24 August 2011 9:02 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Conan the Barbarian was such a stunning flop when it opened to just $10 million last weekend that there wasn't even the usual round of Hollywood blame game-- everyone involved, from Lionsgate to Jason Momoa on down, seemed anxious to just stick their heads in the sand and forget the whole thing. Even Deadline, in their snarky "autopsy report" on the movie, could only decide that "the execution was just poor, poor, poor." Essentially, everyone had to bear the weight of this stinker. Including, as it turns out, one of the three credited screenwriters, Sean Hood, who has weathered other critical misfires like Halloween: Resurrection and Cube: Hypercube. This time, though, Hood took to the Internet to describe what it feels like to watch your movie tank, in a long and very thoughtful post at Quora. In some ways he's got some necessary distance from the process-- he argues, as many »

Lionsgate Return to the Cube

10 March 2011 1:00 PM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

For the uninitiated, the Cube films are under-seen gems.

The first film, Cube, opens in a cubic room, with the unfortunate occupier immediately sliced and diced by an unseen booby trap. We then meet more prisoners, who realise that they can can move from one cubic room to the next in any direction, with some rooms lethally booby-trapped and numeric codes at each doorway giving a clue as to the way to proceed. It was stripped-down sci-fi at its finest – no spoon-feeding or easy answers and lots of imaginative use of a shoe-string budget.

Cube 2: Hypercube expanded well on the first film’s premise, introducing time loops into the Cube, but continuing with the pleasingly imaginative booby-traps and grisly deaths. Kind of like Saw, but with skill, craft and inventiveness rather than unpleasantness for its own sake. Cube Zero then went back to before the first film, showing more »

Lionsgate Plans ‘Cube 3D’ film

8 March 2011 11:35 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It’s back to the “Cube” again. Lionsgate is soliciting pitches for “Cube 3D,” according to ShockTillYouDrop. It is not clear on whether the film would be the third part of a complete reboot of the franchise. In the original 1997 science fiction horror “Cube,” the tale is about seven complete strangers with different personalities involuntarily placed into a maze full of deadly traps. The original film was directed by Vincenzo Natali (“Splice,” “Ginger Snaps”). It starred Nicole de Boer (“Stephen King’s Dead Zone,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”), Maurice Dean Wint (“RoboCop: Prime Directives,” “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) and David Hewlett (“Stargate: Atlantis,” “Splice”). There was also a follow up 2002 sequel called, “Cube 2: Hypercube.” In this version, eight strangers need to escape the “hypercube” and discovered they are in a strange fourth dimension where the laws of physics do not apply. The film was directed by Andrzej Sekula (“The Pleasure Drivers, »

Lionsgate wants to re-enter the Cube

8 March 2011 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent QuietEarth news »

Styd is reporting that Lionsgate is currently fielding pitches for Cube 3D. No definitive word yet on whether the new film is being considered a sequel or a reboot, though I expect that would depend on what they are pitched.

I'm sure Quiet Earth readers need no introduction to the 1997 Canadian scifi movie from Vincenzo Natali (Splice), but if so, it's about a group of people who find themselves trapped inside a never ending series of cube rooms full of deadly traps.

Cube spawned the 2002 sequel, Cube 2: Hypercube, directed by Andrzej Sekula, and a third film, Cube Zero, which is actually a prequel, showing us an early, lower tech version of the cube. »

Lionsgate On The Hunt For Cube 3D

8 March 2011 4:56 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

And why wouldn.t they be? Their last horror franchise, Saw, has just mercifully hit the end of its seven-movie-too-long run, so the distributor will need to fill that void with something and it might as well be another horror franchise they can run into the ground with 3D. Directed by Vincenzo Natali, who recently released Splice, Cube hit theaters in 1997 and follows the story of seven kidnapped strangers who find themselves trapped in a cube of cubes, trying to navigate through the traps each cube may or may not contain. It was a great piece or psychological horror and even had a dash of comedy thrown into the mix, quickly becoming a cult favorite. It was followed up by Cube 2: Hypercube, an ambitious but failed outing by Reservoir Dogs cinematographer Andrzej Sekula. The latest in the Cube series, Cube Zero, was a prequel to the original and tied »

Lionsgate is Looking to Bring Back Sci-Fi Cult Classic 'Cube' in 3D

7 March 2011 11:40 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Years before Vincenzo Natali introduced us to Dren in Splice he directed an extremely low budget sci-fi flick called Cube that screened at Sundance and became a cult classic. Then came the sequel Cube²: Hypercube and even a straight-to-dvd prequel called Cube Zero six years back - and apparently it's coming back again. ShockTillYouDrop is reporting they've heard a Cube 3D is now in development. However, they don't know whether it'll be a remake, reboot or another sequel, but it sounds like it's going to be a quasi-remake/sequel, playing in the same "cube" world but with 3D. Maybe they're looking for a replacement for the Saw movies? In the first Cube, a group of people find themselves inside of a series of connected cube-shaped rooms, each one with a door on all six walls; some lead to another room with a deadly trap (like Saw), others eventually lead to »

Lionsgate Wants to Return to the Cube

7 March 2011 | | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Lionsgate is presently fielding pitches for Cube 3D , a source tells us. That's right, it's either a direct sequel, a reboot or a redo of the 1997 sci-fi/horror thriller which actually preceded the Lionsgate's fixation on a certain franchise that also heavily utilized enclosed spaces, strangers and traps ( Saw ). The original Cube put director Vincenzo Natali ( Splice ) on the genre map and concerned a group of strangers who were confined to a series of rooms, each one containing (or not) a lethal device. Cube spawned a 2002 sequel, Cube 2: Hypercube , directed by Andrzej Sekula, the cinematographer known for his work on Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction . Later, Lionsgate released the prequel Cube: Zero . It's too early in the game to know what approach »

Film Fail #8 – Six Significantly Stupid Horror Sequels

7 February 2011 4:35 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As a horror fan there is nothing more disheartening than hearing that a sequel is being made to a perfectly fine and contained original film. More often than not this means that there will be less emphasis on character and much more blood and guts, the villain will receive more screen time and lose their initial air of mystique, and creating a frightening arena and developing a scary tone will be disregarded to make room for laboured set pieces and exposition laden scenes.

Here are six of the stupidest horror sequels that did just that;

6.) Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’S Revenge

The original Nightmare on Elm Street was so scary because it captured the unknown and unpredictable quality of our nightmares. The fact that anything is possible in the surreal world of our dark imagination made the potential for horror limitless and the Wes Craven film capitalized »
