Donna Langley on Universal Success and the ‘Fate of the Movie Gods’

Donna Langley on Universal Success and the ‘Fate of the Movie Gods’
Universal keeps outdoing itself under Donna Langley’s watch.

Last year was its most profitable yet, boasting tentpole successes including “Despicable Me 3” and “The Fate of the Furious,” as well as such breakout hits as “Get Out” and “Girls Trip.” Its first quarter was its best ever, setting the momentum for the rest of 2017. All told, the studio crossed $5 billion worldwide at the box office, its second time ever, during a year in which box office was down industry wide.

Fittingly enough the Producers Guild of America will honor Langley, Universal’s chair since 2013, with its Milestone Award at its Jan. 20 ceremony.

“Donna Langley is essentially the epitome of a 21st century studio executive,” Producers Guild awards chairs Donald De Line and Amy Pascal said when announcing the honor, the PGA’s highest accolade. “Not only has she built Universal into a powerhouse through her stewardship of tentpole event films, she’s built

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Almost Ditched Its Broom Boy Finale

For all of its box office fortunes ($1.2 billion and counting), Star Wars: The Last Jedi proved pretty contentious among viewers – more contentious than anyone had expected.

But perhaps the one scene that really struck a chord with moviegoers was The Last Jedi‘s finale, in which we returned to the young stable boy marooned on Canto Bight. Inspired by the heroics and general kindness of Finn and Rose, the wide-eyed (and Force-sensitive!) youngster looks to the stars, invigorated with a sense of hope – hope that the First Order can be brought down to size.

For added effect, the camera cuts to a close-up of Broom Boy’s ring, which featured the famous Rebel logo encased in red, a recurring color all throughout The Last Jedi – from Snoke’s Throne Room to the mineral planet of Crait. And thanks to an exhaustive, spoiler-filled chat with Empire (no, not that one), Rian Johnson

Nick Robinson in Second Trailer for Gay Coming-of-Age 'Love, Simon'

"Disclaimer: this is about to get romantic as F." 20th Century Fox has debuted the second official trailer for a movie titled Love, Simon, in theaters this March. This is one of the first gay coming-of-age films about the life of high schooler who has yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. And it looks great! No really, check this out you may be surprised. Starring young actor Nick Robinson (from Jurassic World and The Kings of Summer) as Simon.

Kevin Smith On ‘The Last Jedi’ Haters: “It’s Vitriolic, As If Somebody F—–d Up Their Childhood”

**Spoilers Ahead**

The last time we saw a blockbuster that earned over $1.2 billion worldwide prove to be this divisive was “Jurassic World.” If “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was faulted for being too familiar, then “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is being criticized for being too different. From Rey’s parents (Kylo must be lying, they can’t be nobody!) to Luke’s powers (that’s not how the Force works!), diehard fans have a long list of things they’re unhappy about when it comes to Rian Johnson‘s film.

Daisy Ridley was moved to tears by Colin Trevorrow’s Star Wars: Episode IX pitch

After hearing her character’s fate in Colin Trevorrow’s Star Wars: Episode IX pitch, Daisy Ridley was apparently moved to tears.

J.J. Abrams wasn’t always the director of the as yet untitled Star Wars: Episode IX, he was brought in to replace Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow in 2017.

Jurassic World helmer Trevorrow was apparently removed from the position for not working well with Lucasfilm but his concept for the sequel to The Last Jedi was apparently moving enough to bring a tear to the eye.

Saturday Night Live star Bobby Moynihan, speaking to Collider, has revealed what he witnessed at a SNL after party between Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Trevorrow at a time when the director still had the job.

“I was in The Book of Henry, the movie that Colin Trevorrow directed, and we talked about it a great deal. We’re both big fans, and I

Colin Trevorrow’s Initial Pitch For Star Wars: Episode IX Brought Daisy Ridley To Tears

Cast your mind back to a time when Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) was still attached to Star Wars: Episode IX, and you’ll likely recall the director’s pledge to deliver a “deeply and profoundly satisfying” answer to Rey’s parentage. How times change.

Back in September, Trevorrow and Lucasfilm parted ways over “creative differences,” prompting the latter to place Episode IX in the capable hands of J.J. Abrams, who was originally responsible for resurrecting the Star Wars saga more than two years ago.

It’s a high-profile departure that resulted in a great disturbance in the Force, and ever since, the franchise’s impassioned fanbase have pondered over what could have been. After all, Rian Johnson seemingly set the record straight via Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which tells us that Rey’s lineage is no longer a point of concern. Or is it?

Should Jurassic World 2 Finally Kill Off Rexy, the Original T-Rex?

Should Jurassic World 2 Finally Kill Off Rexy, the Original T-Rex?
The original T-Rex, aka Rexy, from Jurassic Park has been in the franchise for nearly 30 years leading many to speculate if the upcoming Jurassic World 2 will kill her off. Chris Pratt, J.A. Bayona, and Colin Trevorrow have all promised a darker movie this time around and killing off one of the franchise's most beloved characters would definitely fall into the dark category, eliciting tears from long-time fans. Jurassic World 2 hits theaters on June 22nd, 2018 and it just might see the end of the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex, leaving room for a new dinosaur to take over the reins.

According to JurassicWorld.com, Rexy was born either in late 1989 or early 1990 and she has made appearances in the original novel by Michael Crichton and was featured heavily in the first Jurassic Park movie. Rexy has also shown up in other forms of media including video games, trading cards, and clothing as well

Well it’s about time a movie director is having some foresight and giving fans of the Jurassic Park franchise reason to have something to look forward to.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Passes Rogue One At The Box Office

Is there any stopping Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Ever since its debut a few weeks ago, the latest chapter in the Skywalker saga has blown past one box office record after another, destroying any and all competition and quickly making its way to that much sought after $1 billion mark – which it’s now passed. Not only that, but thanks to Episode VIII‘s haul, Star Wars has now become the second highest grossing franchise of all-time, trailing behind Disney’s other behemoth, the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But now The Last Jedi can add yet another notch to its belt, as this week it passed Rogue One both domestically and worldwide. On home turf, Rian Johnson’s pic now has $533 million, while Edwards’ spinoff did $532 million. Globally, the former has $1,056,389,228, compared to the latter’s $1,056,057,273. And, of course, The Last Jedi still has a while to go before it leaves theaters.

Entertainment Predictions for 2018: Best Picture Winner, B.O. Rebound, Netflix’s Ambitions

Entertainment Predictions for 2018: Best Picture Winner, B.O. Rebound, Netflix’s Ambitions
For sheer head-smacking shock value, how do you top a year that saw Rupert Murdoch become a seller, Harvey Weinstein become an irredeemable pariah, Bill O’Reilly become unemployed, “Wonder Woman” become the superhero box office champ and the president of the United States become the nation’s most widely read media critic?

Yes, 2017 was a roller-coaster ride from start to finish. And the year ahead promises to be shaped by plenty of fallout from the previous 12 months. We’ll learn the fate of At&T and Time Warner’s merger — probably to be decided in a Washington, D.C., courtroom. We’ll find out if the Disney brand can coexist under the same enormous roof as Fox. We’ll undoubtedly be astounded more than once by Twitter missives from the commander-in-chief. And we’ll likely be reeling from further examples of digital giants muscling into the content business, as audiences embrace an ever-growing number of providers and platforms

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Will Have the Biggest Action Scene in Franchise History

There is no doubt one of the most anticipated movies of next year is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The sequel certainly has a lot to live up to considering Jurassic World is the fourth biggest movie of all time worldwide. And if it’s action you’re hoping for, Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona tells Empire the film will have a lot of action and some like we've never seen before:

“Fallen Kingdom [starts] with a massive action piece that feels like a James Bond prologue,” he tells us. “And in the centre there is the biggest set-piece ever done for a Jurassic movie.”

It is possible that the “biggest set-piece” he's talking about is the volcano escape scene we see in the trailer. Co-writer Colin Trevorrow has said that everything we see in the trailer takes place during the first hour of the film, so there is a good chance
