Scorecards 2009: Sony

21 December 2009 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

  A Sony restructuring in April makes it difficult to compare the performance of some of the congomerate's various entertainment parts year-over-year because video games and other products no longer are broken out in financial reports.

Profit and revenue in the film division sunk dramatically through the first three calendar quarters, but the numbers will improve in the fourth quarter as "2012" and "This Is It" are accounted for. In fact, Sony Pictures already set a record a month ago, with 2009's worldwide boxoffice surpassing the $3.33 billon it grossed in 2006.

In 2010, look for "Grown Ups," with Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Chris Rock, to score major coin, as should "Salt," starring Angelina Jolie. And Sony is banking on Will Ferrell to recover from his "Land of the Lost" fiasco when he stars alongside Mark Wahlberg in the comedy-action cop film "The Other Guys."

What Might -- and Might Not -- Win the Visual Effects Oscar

14 December 2009 3:02 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

When it comes to the Academy Award for best visual effects, you might think there are too many possible contenders to put on one ballot. And you'd be right. That's why the Academy Visual Effects Branch Executive Committee has narrowed it down to a list of 15 semifinalists, from which the nominees and eventual winner will be chosen. Here's what's in the running now:

Angels & Demons, Avatar, Coraline, A Christmas Carol, District 9, G-Force, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Sherlock Holmes, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, 2012, Watchmen, and Where the Wild Things Are.

In a couple weeks, the committee will narrow the list down even further, to seven entries, and then 15-minute excerpts of those seven films will be shown to all the members of the Academy's Visual Effects Branch. The branch will then vote to determine the three actual nominees. »

Local teen mistakes ‘New Moon’ for ‘Underworld 4′

21 November 2009 6:51 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

Though New Moon is already breaking records and is expected to be a mammoth success for its studio Summit Entertainment, not everybody is so enthralled with the love and devotion of hunky vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and his lovestruck girlfriend Bella (Kristen Stewart).

“I thought I was walking into Underworld 4. All my friends told me that the Cooper 7 was showing Underworld 4 at midnight and that tickets were going fast,” said Shane Fennigan, a junior at Crestfallen High School. “My friends were all ‘Dude, this movie has vampires and Lycans and it’s showing at the Cooper, you should go, nobody knows about it.’ I told them ‘[expletive] yeah!’ and I raced down there.”

Despite the long line of teenage girls at the theater, Fennigan was undaunted. “I thought that there was some discount for suburban goth girls or something. Or that vampires fighting Lycans were starting to catch on,” he said sadly. »

‘Underworld 4′ scores a writer, still no word on Kate Beckinsale

20 November 2009 11:03 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

Underworld 4 still doesn’t have a star attached (no Kate Beckinsale (Underworld, Underworld: Evolution) or Rhona Mitra (prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) but it does have a writer.

Screen Gems has tapped The Shield writer John Hlavin to write the script for the fourth entry in the Underworld series. Want to know what Underworld 4 will be about? Keep waiting.

“I can tell you it’s not a prequel,” Hlavin said. “It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences, meaning that we don’t want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements.”

The 3D project is still without a director but is still on track for a January 2011 release.

Underworld 4 Gets a Writer from The Shield

20 November 2009 9:12 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Writer John Hlavin has been around the block. He's written several episodes of The Shield, the incredibly popular FX show, and episodes of Trust Me, the recently canceled TNT drama. But none of that will compare with the watchful eyes that will be upon his next project, as he signs on to pen the fourth installment in the Underworld franchise for Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment. The fourth film -- which still does not have a director attached -- is "not a prequel," says Hlavin, who according to Heat Vision is keeping the plot under wraps. "It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences," he added. "Meaning that we don't want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements." Original Underworld star Kate Beckinsale did not return for the third film, which starred Rhona Mitra and Michael Sheen, and »

Underworld 4 Gets a Screenwriter

20 November 2009 6:07 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

THR reports that former Shield writer John Hlavin will write the screenplay for Underworld 4. The fourth installment in the franchise is supposedly going to be shot in 3-D and will set up another trilogy of Underworld movies. Hlavin wouldn't say too much about the plot, but he did note that "it's not a prequel."

It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences, meaning that we don't want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements.

Len Wiseman, director of the first two Underworlds will produce, while neither Kate Beckinsale, who starred in Underworld and Underworld: Evolution, nor Rhona Mitra, who starred in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, are signed on to return. However, Beckinsale has said that she could be interested in returning if she liked the script.

The Shield writer John Hlavin to write fourth Underworld for Screen Gems and Lakeshore.

20 November 2009 1:02 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Screenwriter John Hlavin will write the fourth installment of Screen Gems' and Lakeshore Entertainment's "Underworld." Len Wiseman, director of the first and second installment, will produce with Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Richard Wright of Lakeshore. Hlavin told The Hollywood Reporter "I can tell you it's not a prequel. It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences, meaning that we don't want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements." Special effects wizard Patrick Tatopoulos directed "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans," the third film in the series. That was a prequel and starred Rhona Mitra. Mitra nor Beckinsale have shown any interest in starring as yet. We'll see. And will Tatopoulos be at the wheel again? »

Shield Writer John Hlavin to Pen the 4th Underworld Movie

19 November 2009 10:05 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’re getting another Underworld movie and there’s no way around it.  I dropped out after the first movie, but it did teach me a valuable lesson: Kate Beckinsale in black leather spandex wielding two guns does not a good movie make.  Also (and I fail to understand this in New Moon as well), why are werewolves and vampires fighting?  I know that there’s some back story explaining it but what makes these two groups inherently in conflict as opposed to any other monster?

Maybe John Hlavin, a writer on The Shield, which is one of my all-time favorite shows, can explain it to me, or at least bring me back to the series.  Thankfully, Hlavin says he aims to do just that (while not alienating the precious fans who must be appeased lest the world suffer their wrath).  Hit the jump for details and wonder if you »

Len Wiseman Gets Apocalyptic with ‘Nocturne’

10 November 2009 9:35 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Roland Emmerich isn't the only director thinking about the end of the world this year. According to THR, Underworld and Live Free or Die Hard directer Len Wiseman (aka Mr. Kate Beckensale) is also looking to put an end to humanity. His pitch, titled Nocturne, has been picked up by 20th Century Fox. It is based on an original idea about a group of people who survive the end of the world and the mystery surrounding how they got through it. There is no script yet, but the studio is currently shopping the idea around to writers. This makes for three projects in development for Wiseman, who is quickly becoming the next major director with everything to do, and no time to actually do it. After directing Live Free or Die Hard and producing this year's Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, he has had nothing actually get the go-ahead for production. He's »

Len Wiseman attached to mysterious post-apocalyptic project Nocturne

10 November 2009 6:09 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Len Wiseman is currently looking for writers to hash-out an "untitled" post-apocalyptic pitch called Nocturne(?). To confuse matters even further (most confusing report from the Hollywood Reporter ever?), the industry trade paper says that Len Wiseman directed Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which he didn't. C'mon THR, you guys are just getting lazy now.

Word is, "the project is based on an original idea about a group of people who survive the end of the world and the mystery surrounding how they got to that position."

When will we see the film? Well don't forget, Wiseman is also attached to the underwater Pa project, Atlantis Rising, and the futuristic war movie, Shrapnel, so maybe not all that soon. There was a time when Wiseman was attached to the Escape from NY reboot, but word is that whole project has completely fallen apart.

Len Wiseman Gets in on the Nocturne Apocalypse

9 November 2009 9:02 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Not to be outdone by Roland Emmerich and his disaster porn fetish, “Underworld” director Len Wiseman is going to try his hand at blowing up the world and leaving behind just a few stragglers to figure out why. Wiseman, who directed the first two “Underworld” movies along with “Live Free or Die Hard”, has sold an untitled pitch to Fox about the end of the world. Well okay, the pitch is said to be untitled, but in their article, THR actually calls the movie “Noturne” in the headline, which, er, doesn’t really mean it’s untitled. Or did THR screw up? I guess we’ll find out tomorrow. Then again, the article also says Wiseman directed “Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans”, when he only produced, so … Anyhoo, about the movie, which may or may not be called “Noturne”. It will be about a group of people who survive the end of the world, »
