Joe Carnahan Says ‘Bad Boys For Life’ Will Be “The Strongest Of The Trilogy Thus Far”

23 August 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Generally speaking, sequels tend to offer diminishing returns, though there are the very few and far between franchises that have gotten even better by the third film: For every “Toy Story 3,” there are a handful of “The Godfather Part III“-style disappointments. However, director Joe Carnahan points to that Pixar movie as an example of what he’s […]

Bad Boys 3: Writer-Director Carnahan Reveals Why You Can't Miss This Threequel

22 August 2016 8:13 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I've always thought of Joe Carnahan as an under-appreciated talent. Films like Narc and The Grey have shown that the man knows how to write and direct tense, hard-hitting thrills. Even The A-Team I felt was unfairly beaten up by critics- which contributed to its unfortunate box office performance. To me, A-Team was unapologetically over the top, and not meant to be taken particularly seriously. It was a testosterone-fueled popcorn action extravaganza that, for some reason, critics expected to be something more. To borrow an analogy I used earlier this year, it was a slurpee.

Anyway, I think Carnahan may have found just the right vehicle for his skill set. It'll allow him to create the kind of macho action spectacle he likes to make, and give him access to characters and actors that have enough chemistry and star power to make the material fly. Not to mention, it's a »

Joe Carnahan talks ‘Bad Boys 3’

21 August 2016 10:57 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bad Boys For Life: Director Joe Carnahan talks about the upcoming Bad Boys 3.

The third film in the Bad Boys series, Bad Boys For Life, will be released in 2018.

There will be a new Bad Boys movie shooting very soon. The film is expected to roll into production next year for a 2018 release, and we’re already getting all kinds of excited.

Joe Carnahan is directing the third movie in the franchise, and has been speaking with io9-Gizmodo about the big-budget actioner that will reunite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Carnahan told the site that the film, Bad Boys For Life, is “the strongest script of any of those movies. Hands down. In a walk over.”

“Unless you’re Toy Story 3, usually third ones aren’t the strongest, and I think this one will be the strongest of the trilogy thus far,” he added.

Joe Carnahan explains why Bad Boys 3 has been pushed back

20 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This past week, it was announced that Sony’s Bad Boys 3 has been retitled to Bad Boys For Life, as well as being pushed back from next summer to January 2018, and now director Joe Carnahan has explained the reason for the delay during an interview with io9.

“We couldn’t all get in a room, go through this thing and really ring it out,” states Carnahan. “I’m a big believer in ‘Do the work at the script level until you’ve got something you know works.’ That everyone is happy with, the stars are happy with, the director is happy with, the studio is happy with… When you’re coming back after 15 years, you better come back with a home run ball. And I really believe that’s what we have….We’ve got a responsibility to make something that’s absolutely equivalent or exceeds what comes before. »

Joe Carnahan Hails Bad Boys 3 As “Strongest Of The Trilogy Thus Far”

20 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We ride together, we die together. Bad Boys for Life.

That’s the official title of Joe Carnahan’s Bad Boys 3, the long-rumored action sequel that has simmered on the fringes of development for the better part of 13 years. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back as chest-beating detectives Lowery and Burnett, and the threequel recently staked out a January 12, 2018 release date.

It’s a slight delay to production, considering that Sony and Carnahan were initially eyeing up a primetime June 2017 window. Nevertheless, Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces, The A-Team, and The Grey) holds up Bad Boys for Life as “the strongest of the trilogy thus far.”

Per io9:

“Unless you’re Toy Story 3, usually third ones aren’t the strongest, and I think this one will be the strongest of the trilogy thus far. There’s a lot of funny shit in this movie. And there’s also a very mysterious, »

Bad Boys 3 Director Talks Script Delay and a More Grown-Up Story

19 August 2016 6:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Sony Pictures announced that it had pushed its long-awaited sequel Bad Boys 3 from June 2, 2017, where it would have had to face Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, to January 12, 2018. The sequel was also given the official title of Bad Boys for Life, and it faces considerably less competition in this date, going up against Gnomeo & Juliet sequel Sherlock Gnomes, and Maze Runner: The Death Cure. Today we have new updates from writer-director Joe Carnahan, about why the movie was pushed back so much.

Gizmodo caught up with Joe Carnahan, who came aboard to write and direct this action-packed sequel last June. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed in April that they still are waiting on the script, but now it seems the scripting work is complete. Here's what the writer-director had to say, teasing that it's the strongest script in the whole trilogy.

"(It's) the strongest script of any of those movies. »

Toy Story Fan Video Solves the Mystery of Woody's Missing Gun?

9 August 2016 7:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We still have a couple of years to wait until Toy Story 4 arrives in theaters, but maybe the movie will finally answer a question that many of us probably haven't even asked ourselves. Or maybe it won't, but there is an interesting question regarding Woody that you may never have thought about. Woody most definitely has a holster for a gun in all three Toy Story movies, but he doesn't have a gun. So, where is Woody's gun? A new YouTube video has set out to answer that question.

A video that was recently uploaded to the SuperCarlinBrothers YouTube channel decided to try and explore this strange fact about Toy Story. The video wasn't able to uncover any specific reason why Woody doesn't have a gun, but there is a lot of strange, circumstantial evidence that is presented, seeming to confirm that there is no concrete reason the character can't have a gun. »

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘King of New York,’ Eisenstein, Joe Dante, Pialat & More

5 August 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.


Throw on your suede and pastels and prepare for the music-filled, light-streaked “Dim All the Lights: Disco and the Movies.”

Nicolas Roeg‘s Roald Dahl adaptation, The Witches, plays on Saturday morning; a print of Abel Ferrara‘s King of New York screens throughout the weekend; Oscar Micheaux‘s Ten Minutes to Live shows this Sunday. »

2 August 2016 7:49 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Finding Dory “just kept swimming” right to the top of the Irish box office taking almost €1.3M in its opening 4 days over the Irish bank holiday weekend. In the UK/Ireland cinema territory Finding Dory is now the 2nd biggest Disney or Pixar animated opening of all time (behind Toy Story 3). The film also continues to reach new depths in the Us, where it is now the highest grossing animated and 8th highest grossing movie of all time taking $469M since its release in June. Finding Dory has already reached an incredible $831M at the global box office after only a few weeks on release globally.  »

Finding Dory surfaces atop UK box office as Jason Bourne spies second

2 August 2016 4:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Pixar’s sequel enjoyed a heady start to the school holiday season, as Spielberg’s Bfg continues to stand tall and indie hits are few and far between

With Finding Dory now the most successful animated movie of all time at the Us box-office ($469m so far), the pressure was on the UK division of Disney – which has always performed well with Pixar movies – to come up with a similar result. And the Finding Nemo sequel has certainly gotten off to a flying start, with debut weekend takings of £8.12m. That’s the second biggest three-day opening for a Disney or Pixar animated film, behind only Toy Story 3, which began in July 2010 with £11.49m, plus previews of £9.69m. In terms of the whole animation sector, including companies such as DreamWorks Animation and Illumination Entertainment, Finding Dory has delivered the seventh-biggest three-day opening, behind Minions, Toy Story 3, Shrek 2, »

Finding Dory review – strikingly lovely

31 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A forgetful fish searches for its family in this charming sequel to Finding Nemo

The very best of the sequels attempted by the Pixar studio manage to combine a familiar milieu with the opportunity to explore entirely different themes to the original films. Toy Story 2 (which was written but not directed by Finding Dory co-director Andrew Stanton), for example, looks at the fear of mortality through the prism of the playroom. Toy Story 3 takes on the aftermath of a relationship breakdown. Finding Dory, meanwhile, is slightly less adventurous thematically, in that it reprises the central motif of Finding Nemo: that of the enduring parent-child bond, and the special embrace of family, in all its permutations. However, it is approached with such charm and warmth that it hardly matters that the two films share such similar arcs.

In this case it is Dory, the amnesiac blue tang (voiced »

How the Siggraph Conference Expands Tech— and Empathy

21 July 2016 4:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Although this year’s Siggraph theme,”Render the Possibilities,” offers a nice catchphrase for all of the cutting-edge CG eye candy on display next week at the Anaheim Convention Center, there’s also a timely sub-theme revolving around empathy in Vr, which can be witnessed in other presentations as well.

Given the tragic racial violence and anger that has swept the country, Carnegie Mellon University’s Vr experience, “Injustice,” couldn’t be timelier — or more educational. It’s built around racially motivated police brutality. Participants witness an act of racial discrimination, forcing them to make moral and ethical decisions on the spot. They can actively engage with, and alter, the storyline by selecting a variety of dialogue choices.

Similarly, “Invasion!,” explores ideas around character empathy and immersive Vr “presence” with a close alien encounter. Presented in real-time and directed by “Madagascar’s” Eric Darnell, the animated short features narration by Ethan Hawke. »

Finding Dory Review

19 July 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Pixar recently announced a moratorium on sequels, and while it’s still hard to judge anything they do harshly, you can easily see their struggle. This is especially true of a company that now needs to continue the interest in things that are part of theme parks. That’s just the reality.

The news, especially with things like The Incredibles 2 already in production, may seem a little strange, but you have to respect the idea. We all love the characters Pixar has given us over the years, and there’s a lot of love for titles like Toy Story 3. But, when you think about Monsters University, or Cars 2, there’s just something different going on in your mind than when you think about Brave, Up, Wall-e, Ratatouille, or Inside Out.

Sure, the sequels they have given us still outshine most animated efforts we get, and it’s always »

'Pets' Slimes 'Ghostbusters' While 'Finding Dory' Swims to All-Time Domestic Record

17 July 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

For a fifth straight weekend in a row an animated film has taken the #1 spot at the box office as Illumination and Universal's The Secret Life of Pets followed up its record-breaking opening with a chart-topping sophomore session, pushing the launch of Sony's Ghostbusters reboot to second. Meanwhile, Finding Dory has now become the highest grossing animated release of all-time domestically as Warner Bros. adds two new films to 2016's century club with The Legend of Tarzan and The Conjuring 2. The weekend was down 26% from last week and ~17% compared to last year, yet there is still plenty to highlight. The Secret Life of Pets finished #1 for a second weekend in a row with an estimated $50.5 million (51.5% drop), bringing its domestic cume to an impressive $203.1 million after just ten days in release. This already places the animated hit higher than Disney's Tangled and just behind Pixar's Ratatouille on the all-time animated chart. »

Delayed Sequels Have Become Immediate Profits

12 July 2016 7:29 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Can studios really expect theater audiences to keep coming back to old franchises decades after their original release? Looking at data over the last couple decades, the answer has become a resounding yes. This is an in-depth look at why that is. 

We all know that sequels are rarely better than the original film. And sequels of sequels tend to be even worse. Audiences are aware of this fact, which is why traditionally sequels usually gross less in theaters than the original film. If audiences don’t respond to the sequel as well as the original film, they are less inclined to see it more than once, or tell their friends to go see it. 

It becomes a matter of diminishing returns; studios try to eke out as much business from one franchise before it no longer makes financial sense to release another sequel. And with each sequel making less money, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Star Zendaya Circling Greatest Showman With Hugh Jackman

12 July 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Singer-songstress Zendaya is circling a lead role in The Greatest Showman with Hugh Jackman, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Word of Zendaya’s potential casting comes only one week after My Week with Marilyn alum Michelle Williams closed a deal to star, rounding out a cast that currently comprises both Jackman and Zac Efron.

Chronicling the legendary story of one P.T. Barnum, founder of the modern circus who made a name for himself across Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, The Greatest Showman has already appointed director Michael Gracey at the helm, working from a script penned by esteemed screenwriter Michael Arndt, best known for his work on Toy Story 3.

Hugh Jackman, who has remained attached to the project for years at this point, is set to lead the charge as Barnum, while THR notes that Disney starlet Zendaya is in contention for the role of a trapeze artist. »
