Assassin’s Creed Animated Series In The Works From Dredd Producer

Rubbing shoulders with a very small number of IP (see: Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto), Ubisoft’s expansive Assassin’s Creed series now belongs in the pantheon of video game franchises big enough to transcend into the mainstream – even if its live-action adaptation failed to make much of a dent at the international box office late last year.

A decade has passed since AC1 launched onto PS3 and Xbox 360, and in those intervening years, Ubisoft’s marquee series has produced tie-in books, comics, graphic novels, feature films, and an entire encyclopedia dedicated to the Creed and its sworn enemy, the Knights Templar.

That eternal battle between good and evil has raged for generations, and in 2017, Ubisoft will relocate the Assassin’s Creed franchise to ancient Egypt for Origins. But there’s another instalment of the AC series looming on the horizon, and it appears to have found a home at Netflix.

The Mummy – Review

With a property like The Mummy, you could take it in a couple of different directions. You have the horror route: Universal and Hammer Studios both went this route in the 1930s and 50s, proving that the schlocky idea of a looming curse can be presented in a sophisticated and chilling manner. You have the adventure route: The 1999 Mummy remake gave us a fun, Indiana Jones character in a pulpy page-turning excursion. As Universal begins its journey to create their own cinematic universe like Marvel – currently titled Dark Universe – an attempt is made to go in both directions at that same time, without successfully capturing either experience very well.

When Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and Chris Vail (Jake Johnson) aren’t slinging jokes (bad ones, at that) during missions for the Army, the duo like to steal antiquities to sell on the Black Market. A treasure map leads the pair

Crypt of Curiosities: Satanism in Italian Cinema

  • DailyDead
It’s telling that the first feature-length film to come out of Italy was Dante’s Inferno (1911). Because of course, what else would it be? A silent, 68-minute adaptation of the classic poem that, quite memorably, features Satan munching on the souls of the damned. I suppose you could consider this film a tone-setter for the sort of genre films that would come out in Italy over the next hundred-plus years. The film is violent, demonic, and packed with full-frontal nudity. But most importantly, it was all about Hell.

Now, I know it should go without saying, but Italy is pretty big on that whole Catholicism deal. According to a survey conducted in 2005–2006, 87.8% of Italian citizens considered themselves to be Catholic. It should be no surprise, then, that while religious horror is prevalent in the United States, nobody can quite deliver a satanic panic like the Italians. And in the

MIPTV Feels Full Impact of Digital TV Revolution

MIPTV Feels Full Impact of Digital TV Revolution
Cannes — Graced by enticing pre-l.A. screenings of Disney and Lionsgate shows and large excitement at sneak-peaked scenes from Adam Price’s “Ride Upon the Storm” and Tom Tykwer’s “Babylon Berlin,” 2017’s MipTV trade fair underscored why Hollywood still dominates much of global TV, as well as the new raised bar of ambition of European dramas.

Amazon’s Roy Price laid out plans for Amazon to drive into more originals, though he did not go into specifics. Both Amazon and Netflix took meetings with key content suppliers at MipTV. Meanwhile, MipTV caught the TV business, and indeed the world, in vertiginous transition, thanks in business terms to a phenomenon little short of a revolution: the global broadcast of foreign-language shows, currently driven by Netflix.

Change, however, goes beyond that. Not for nothing, The Wit’s Virginia Mouseler drilled down in a Wednesday Fresh TV Fiction on 2017 as the “Year of Trans-Genre,

Central and Eastern European Producers Look Globally for Partners

Central and Eastern European Producers Look Globally for Partners
Increasingly international-minded producers in Central and Eastern Europe are scoring more projects than ever with co-productions on the rise, from historic tales to biopics, in territories both with and without incentives.

The Czech Republic’s Stillking, long a forerunner in bringing Western producers to Prague, wrapped season one of “Genius” (pictured above), which focuses on Albert Einstein, in February; the National Geographic Channel project from Ron Howard with Fox 21 Television chronicles exceptional lives.

The History channel’s “Knightfall,” an adventure tale based on the last days of the 14th century Knights Templar, shot in Prague and Malta for A+E Studios, and also enlisted Stillking.

Film United, another outward-looking Prague-based shingle, is headed by Rick McCallum. It was busy recently with “Britannia,” a 10-part Sky and Amazon series that follows ancient Rome’s conquests of the Celts in the British Isles. As with many such high-end series, Prague’s
