Wonder Woman set to become the biggest summer movie of 2017

19 July 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

DC’s Wonder Woman is set to tick off more achievements and become the biggest summer movie of 2017 domestically.

Having already become one of the biggest films of the year, and taking fifth place in the highest grossing action heroine movies of all time, Wonder Woman should be passing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 any day now.

Currently clocking in at $381 million in the U.S., the superhero movie is only $5 million behind the Marvel sci-fi sequel which sits at $386 million – an incredibly successful movie in its own right.

Slipping past Guardians will make Wonder Woman the summer’s biggest movie but it is still quite some way off the year’s number one movie overall. Beauty and the Beast claims that particular spot, having accumulated $504 million.

Globally, Wonder Woman is sitting in fourth place in the year’s highest grossing films, behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, »

19 July 2017 4:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Wonder Woman 2 is yet to be officially announced, we’ve already heard that Geoff Johns and director Patty Jenkins are hard at work on the story for the sequel to this year’s DC blockbuster, and now TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has revealed that she’s had talks about making a cameo in the Amazon Princess’ next solo big screen adventure.

“Yes, we’ve talked about it, ” said Carter in an interview with People. “We were trying to get me in the first one and we couldn’t make it work with our timing. It really is up to Patty, and if it works in an organic way it’ll be great fun and it’ll be wonderful to do. Am I open to it? Absolutely. I Adore Patty Jenkins, and it’ll be wonderful to do. But we’ll just see how that goes.”

Longtime George A. Romero Collaborator Vows To Finish Four Of The Director’s “Fantastic” Projects

18 July 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The film industry was left in mourning on Sunday evening when horror mastermind George A. Romero passed away at the age of 77.

Often cited as the founding father of the zombie genre, Romero was a creator ahead of his time, and his living dead defied convention to inspire a generation of actors and filmmakers including Edgar Wright (see: Shaun of the Dead), Ben Wheatley, and Alice Lowe.

What makes George A. Romero’s death particularly saddening is that the illustrious filmmaker was due to attend the annual Fantasia Film Festival to promote Road of the Dead, an apocalyptic thriller from the mind of Matt Birman that blends Fast and Furious, Mad Max, and the undead. Romero had planned to produce the film, prompting Birman to relay a heartfelt message to IndieWire.

Exclusive: Wonder Woman star Connie Nielsen shares a funny story about her “awkward” first meeting with Gal Gadot

18 July 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth’s Tai Freligh caught up with Wonder Woman star Connie Nielsen this past week to discuss her role in her new film The Confessions, and also managed to slip in a few questions about her work in the DC Extended Universe, during which Connie shared a funny story about her first meeting with the Amazon Princess herself, Gal Gadot.

I thoroughly enjoyed Wonder Woman.  Have you been surprised by how wildly successful the movie has been?

Gratified and grateful for the reception of this film.

Any funny set stories working with Gal Gadot?

The first time I met Gal I was in the make up trailer inside a tanning tent getting spray tanned – a uniquely clammy experience – when, as I step out of the tent, naked but for a thong, Gal is whipping off her clothes to get into the tent – and that’s where we said hello the first time. »

Great Job, Internet!: Edgar Wright’s tribute to George Romero is enough to make a zombie tear up

18 July 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

There was just one promotional quote on Shaun Of The Dead’s theatrical poster here in the states: “An absolute blast!” —George Romero. Reading director Edgar Wright describe his conversations with and gratitude toward the late horror icon, you get the feeling that’s the only positive review he ever really cared about. In a touching tribute to Romero posted on his personal blog, Wright recalls the story behind that quote and just how much it meant to him. Obviously, Shaun Of The Dead owes a huge debt to Romero—Wright describes it as “taking place in George’s universe”—and once it was completed, Universal Studios, the movie’s U.S. distributor, managed to set up a screening for Romero, who later called Wright in London and praised the film. “I frequently think back to this moment of standing in my house as the moment my life truly changed »

Edgar Wright On “Seismic Impact” Of George A. Romero

17 July 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Edgar Wright seems a more than appropriate person to pen a tribute to George A. Romero, who died Sunday at age 77. Wright on his personal blog today began a remembrance of the iconic writer-director that “It's fair to say that without George A. Romero, I would not have the career I have now,” said Wright, who recounted the story of how Romero’s Living Dead movies were a dead-on influence of Wright and Simon Pegg’s Cornetto films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s… »

Edgar Wright Pens Moving Tribute to His Mentor George Romero: ‘A Major Satirist’

17 July 2017 7:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In a letter on his personal website, “Baby Driver” director Edgar Wright shared some fascinating memories of “Night of the Living Dead” director George Romero, who died yesterday after a brief battle with lung cancer. The highly beloved and influential “father of zombie movies” was a major inspiration for Wright, who came to prominence with “Shaun of the Dead,” a zombie comedy that announces its heavy Romero influence in its very title. “I was a true devotee to all things Romero,” said Wright. “To us, his was the only opinion that mattered.”

George A. Romero: A Maestro of Zombie Terror Who Created the Ultimate Horror-Movie Metaphor

16 July 2017 11:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The first time I ever saw “Night of the Living Dead,” the low-budget masterpiece of flesh-eating midnight terror directed by George A. Romero, who died on Sunday, it was in 1974. I was at home on a lonely high-school Saturday night watching TV, and at 11:30 p.m. an oddball black-and-white movie that opened in a cemetery just kind of…appeared.

I knew absolutely nothing about it. At that point, low-budget horror films — even those that became notorious and sold a lot of tickets on the drive-in and grindhouse circuit, as “Night of the Living Dead” had — possessed an up-from-the-underground, not-quite-on-the-radar quality. They weren’t all that easy to find (especially if you were 15). Yet here was “Night of the Living Dead” on TV. As I sat there in the darkened living room, the film’s end-of-the-world atmosphere of rapacious anxiety seemed, at that moment, as if it had been fashioned for the small screen, and »

5 Amazing New Genre Films Under 10 Minutes Long — Fantasia 2017

15 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We’re living in a golden age of genre films, and there may be no better proof than the Fantasia International Film Festival, the three-week-long celebration of international genre efforts currently in the midst of its 21st year. The lineup is comprised of more than 150 features from all over the world, but that figure is dwarfed by the 300 short films showing across multiple sections. Too often, shorts are marginalized at film festivals, lumped into categories that designate them as calling cards for features and nothing more. Not so at Fantasia, where a number of the shorts showcase the precise visions of filmmakers looking to shock, frighten and unsettle audiences with concise approaches that hardly demand the padding of a feature-length running time.

Fantasia’s programming stands out from other genre festivals in that it doesn’t exclusively focus on outrageous horror movies, B-grade science fiction, or other stereotypes associated with the term “genre. »

As Wonder Woman overtakes the domestic box office total of Deadpool (it is currently sitting at $368.5 million vs #363.1 million) and is also poised to eventually surpass it in the international box office, the Merc with a Mouth has taken to social media to congratulate the Amazon Princess on her success.

Rumour: Wonder Woman 2 set during Cold War, Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor returning

11 July 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: There are spoilers for Wonder Woman below in this post…

According to Screen Rant, some production notes they have obtained have spilled the beans that the sequel to the critically and commercially successful DC Extended Universe superhero extravaganza Wonder Woman will be set during the Cold War, sometime in the 1980s, and features Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince battling the Soviet Union.

However, what’s really intriguing and even downright confusing is the rumor that Chris Pine will also be returning to the action, obviously considering that he met an unfortunate demise during the first film’s climax. If true, it will definitely be interesting to see how Steve Trevor is resurrected from the dead.

Thankfully, although not confirmed, director Patty Jenkins and much of the same production crew are reportedly set to return, so theoretically everything should be in safe hands.

For now, let us know below in »

10 July 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, whose latest hit is Edgar Wright’s wheel-and-disc-spinning breakout “Baby Driver” (June 28, Sony), which has tracked $64 million worldwide to date.

Bottom Line: This brainy duo with plummy British accents have been turning out a consistent slate of smart global hits since the ’80s. The London-based co-chairmen of Working Title boast the best taste in the business. They chase mainstream quality fare. That’s their gig. But even so over the years, partnering with Universal Pictures, with freedom to greenlight movies up to $35 million, their films have grossed an impressive almost $7 billion dollars worldwide.

Critical Thinking: Don’t Believe the Hype

8 July 2017 10:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on hype and hyperbole…

Hype is something every film writer constantly struggles with. The perpetual entertainment news cycle gives film fans so much to chew on. There’s a formulaic cycle of hype that happens with every new movie that strokes the cockles of film fans. Some movies come with preordained hype. A new Star Wars or Marvel movie comes with pre-loaded with months of hype.

Last month the Black Panther trailer debuted and within minutes the internet was hit with a flood of energy and enthusiasm that rippled through every social media feed. People seemed thrilled to get their first glimpses of this extremely interesting new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though about 75% of the posts I saw were focused on the ‘genius’ of using Run The Jewels for the trailer.

Baby Driver Movie Review

7 July 2017 1:32 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Edgar Wright‘s opening salvo into more mainstream films has everything you could want in a massive bite of action escapade, but it’s mashed together in a way that leaves the whole far less than the sum of the parts. That makes for a generally decent effort, and one that is hard to evaluate, because if you pick any particular piece, it’s hard to call it a flaw. Still, something about Wright’s ability to weave a complete picture is as problematic here as it has been in his other titles, like Shaun of the Dead and The World’s End, but in those gooftastic vehicles it hardly matters if you manage a serious level of cohesion.

The titular Baby (Ansel Elgort) finds himself driving for criminal mastermind Doc (Kevin Spacey), but he’s trapped into the affair because he’s working off a debt. Doc is the »
