The box office action this summer will be triggered more by superstars than superheroes, contrary to recent history. And the studios have created and endured some messy budgetary headaches and production melodramas to make that happen.
Will they have a profitable run?
Consider the lineup: Leonardo Di Caprio’s star turn as “The Great Gatsby” prompted a $150 million outlay (pre rebates), while the 1974 “Gatsby” with Robert Redford cost $6.5 million. Johnny Depp’s version of “The Lone Ranger” set Disney back nearly $300 million and its overseas potential worries the studio marketers. Brad Pitt’s delayed and re-cut “World War Z” propelled Paramount to a nearly $200 million zombie spend. Then of course there’s Will Smith in “After Earth” — a risky offering costing more than $100 million, and Robert Downey Jr.’s latest “Iron Man” sequel, whose $1 billion worldwide haul will give the actor stratospheric leverage in negotiating the next installment in the franchise with Marvel parent Disney. »

The first month of the summer movie season is gearing up for a potentially record-breaking box office take, with both Fast & Furious 6 and The Hangover Part III released this Memorial Day weekend. However, lest we forget, there are still a ton of big-budget thrill rides heading to theaters in the coming months. Each week, audiences are faced with loads of new options for what they can spend their hard-earned cash seeing on the big screen.
However, as competition continues to gain momentum, it’s more important than ever for studios to push the films they have coming out in mid and late summer and get them established with the general movie-going public. Sure, ...

We’ve already had one box office-topping zombie movie this year in Jonathan Levine’s Warm Bodies, and it will be interesting to see if World War Z will be the second this summer. It will of course be facing some tough competition with Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel playing in only its second week, which is exactly why it’s going to be interesting to see how the numbers come in in mid-June.
We’ve already seen a handful of action-packed new TV spots this week. And now we’ve got a new poster to share, similar in style to the poster we saw last month, but this time showing Brad Pitt, gun at the ready, on »

Warner Bros. has released a new banner for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, and Paramount Pictures has released a new poster for Marc Forster's World War Z. Both movies look great, but I'm definitely more excited to see Pacific Rim. Paramount recently screened World War Z, and there's been a good amount of positive buzz, so that's good! I wasn't sure how it would turn out.
Pacific Rim - July 12th:
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, »

During my last three trips to Cannes I have simply posted pictures from my time here. This year I thought I would do things a little differently and give you a better idea of just where it all happens. Below is an interactive map of Cannes, marking locations where I spend most of my time, where the theaters are, some of the restaurants and various locations in the city you may have heard me mention on the podcast or in an article. All of the photos are brand new as of this year and some include additional links such as a panoramic view of the Cinema de la Plage and higher resolution looks at some of the other photos. If you zoom into the street view on some of these you can see just how different the city is when there aren't thousands in town for the festival and the »

Brad Pitt surprised fans in Hoboken, New Jersey two nights ago with a screening of his epic zombie flick, "World War Z." The actor wanted to throw a screening for the people that he made the movie for in the first place, so he decided to bring the film to New Jersey, one of the locations featured in "World War Z."
"I said Ok but we can't do it without showing it to the people we made the film for," Pitt said. "We got to do a screening for the fans, so we decided there's no better place to do that than Jersey."
MTV Geek had a man on the ground for the screening, and he was able to see the movie and the fan reaction first hand. Head over there now to see how it all went down!

Poster Simon Brew 24 May 2013 - 06:30
Right then. For our latest poster round-up, we've got a trio of films heading to cinemas this summer, that are arriving with a mixture of expectations.
World War Z first. The new poster doesn't look remarkably different from one of the older ones, but it arrives on the back of word of the film's first review screening. It sounds as if this was a screening that Brad Pitt turned up at, so it was hardly a bunch of grumbly journalists in a dingy screening room. That said, feedback sounds very positive so far. We're looking forward to seeing the film ourselves.
