The Mandarin and English language sequel co-stars Frank Grillo (Captain America: Civil War), Celina Jade (The Man with the Iron Fists), Yu Nan (The Taking of Tiger Mountain) and Hans Zhang (TV series Boss & Me).

The Wolf Warrior Leng Feng (Wu Jing) in the new film has settled to a quiet life by the sea, with his career in tatters. But when his path crosses
The movie, formerly titled “Category 5,” follows a team of tech hackers embarking on a $600 million robbery from a coastal U.S. Mint facility at the same time a Category 5 hurricane is set to strike. The remaining people left in the deserted beach town are a meteorologist (played by Tony Kebbel), a treasury agent (Maggie Grace), and the meteorologist’s ex-Marine brother (Ryan Kwanten).
Cohen’s credits include “The Fast and the Furious,” which launched the franchise in 2001; 2006’s “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”; 2012’s “Alex Cross,” starring Tyler Perry; and 2015’s “The Boy Next Door” with Jennifer Lopez.
Entertainment Studios has recently seen a solid performance with Mandy Moore’s shark adventure “47 Meters Down,” which has grossed more than $41 million domestically.

Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonisation, Sy (Kellan Lutz, The Twilight Saga), escapes a brutal prison where mysterious experiments have been taking place under the watch of a savage warden (Temuera Morrison, Star Wars Episodes 2 & 3, Once Were Warriors). After orchestrating an escape, Sy meets Kane (Daniel MacPherson, The Shannara Chronicles), a lieutenant working for an off-world military contractor – Exor, who have set in motion a plan to wipe out all life from the face of the planet in an attempt to cover up their crimes – when their terrifying “experiments” escape.
With big movie franchises like Despicable Me, Jurassic World, Fast and Furious, The Bourne series, as well as the Fifty Shades of Grey films, one would think that Universal Pictures would be happy. This isn't to
Last week, we reported that this reboot is connected to Brendan Fraser's Mummy, without featuring the actor himself. This entire Dark Universe centers around a corporation known as Prodigium, lead by Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe), and we see at its London headquarters that they have assembled a number of artifacts from various creatures throughout the years,
Brendan Fraser seemed on the verge of being a major movie star in the late 1990s. But it never came to be. We look at why…
I remember going in to watch 1994’s Airheads at the cinema, at the time tempted to do so more by the name of Michael Lehmann on the end credits than Adam Sandler and Brendan Fraser above the title. Steve Buscemi’s presence helped too, of course. But Lehmann had, after all, come to the project off the back of the unfairly maligned Hudson Hawk, and also, this is the man who gave the world Heathers. Can’t grumble with that.
I’d not seen Brendan Fraser on the big screen before, although even by this stage, he’d earned some currency. Encino Man – California Man in the UK – had overcome savage reviews to prove a decent hit. School Ties, that I
The same can’t be said for Universal’s attempt at a new series of classic monster character movies. “The Mummy” with Tom Cruise at the lead reinforced the big story for many top studio releases this summer so far. Foreign is strong initially, but domestic is weak even by relatively modest estimates.
In an otherwise unexceptional weekend, two wide releases — “It Comes At Night” (A24) and “Megan Leavey” (Bleecker Street) — from distributors usually associated with the specialized market placed in the top 10. Neither was stellar, but added about $10 million to the total. At this point, the boost is needed.
The Top 10
1. Wonder Woman (Warner Bros.) Week 2 – Last weekend
The Warner Bros. and DC Comics standalone will have earned $57.2 million from 4,165 theaters by the end of its second weekend, putting it solidly in first place. That’s only a 45% drop from its opening weekend, giving the film an estimated $205 million domestically in two weekends.
The Gal Gadot-starrer will also make more during its second frame than did both “Suicide Squad” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” despite those films having larger opening weekends than “Wonder Woman” ($133.7 million for “Suicide Squad” and $166 million for “Batman v Superman”). Unlike those two films, Patty Jenkins’ has critical support — a current 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“It’s an extraordinary hold for an extraordinary film,” said Jeff Goldstein, the distribution chief at Warner Bros. “When you open up at this high level, to have only a 45% drop, you just don’t see it.
Last month, Universal unveiled the official Dark Universe logo, and confirmed that Johnny Depp will play The Invisible Man while Javier Bardem has
The previous record was set last year by “Train to Busan,” which went on to earn a record-shattering $34.3 million over its five-day opening run. The Korean zombie apocalypse movie still holds the record in the country for the highest single day gross with $9.9 million.
Cruise is toplining the newest Mummy movie, the cast of which also includes Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, Marwan Kenzari, and Russell Crowe. Alex Kurtzman directed the movie based on a script from a team of writers — David Koepp, Christopher McQuarrie, and Dylan Kussman. Kurtzman, Jon Spaihts, and Jenny Lumet have story credits.
The original “Mummy” was released in
Box Office Mojo reports that The Mummy reboot is slated to open in 4,000 theaters, and while both It Comes at Night and Megan Leavey are expected to debut in wide release,
Us and China-based Jiaflix Pictures is teaming with its Chinese partner 1905 Pictures and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to produce $100m futuristic action thriller Speedhunters (working title).
Rob Cohen [pictured] is directing from a script by Josh Parkinson (Free Country). The film is scheduled to start shooting in Shanghai, Studio Babelsberg in Germany and other international locations in July 2017 for release in summer 2018.
Set in the near future, the film follows a team of racers and their crew who get drawn into the intrigue surrounding a revolutionary technology that threatens to change the world.
“Speedhunters has all the tenets of a global franchise with its action sequences, visual effects, relatable characters and a storyline that takes ordinary people through a journey of extraordinary circumstances,” said Di Bonaventura.
“We are excited to work with Hollywood powerhouses Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Rob Cohen, both who have exceptional track records in developing and directing
The film, which has a budget pegged at about $100 million, is set to shoot in Shanghai and Berlin’s Babelsberg Studios from July. Theatrical release is expected in summer 2018.
The film is set in the near future and rooted in the world of Formula racing. A colorful team of racers and crew gets drawn into high intrigue around a revolutionary technology that threatens to change the world.
“‘Speedhunters’ has all the tenets of a global franchise with its action sequences, visual effects, relatable characters and a storyline that takes ordinary people through a journey of extraordinary circumstances,” said di Bonaventura (“G.I. Joe,” “Transformers”), the lead producer.

After several years of testing each other out the China-Hollywood relationship, Chinese companies began seeking ownership positions in indie studios (Stx and Studio 8) and equity stakes in individual movies. Increasingly now they are becoming slate financiers.
That is exactly the progression at Huahua and Sfc. Until recently Huahua had been content to invest on a case by case basis in the Hollywood films that it calculated to be the likeliest blockbusters in China. Partially state-owned, Shanghai Film Co. has been allied with Disney on a handful of pictures.
So the $1 billion pact announced this week by Paramount, Huahua and Sfc
"Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the
You all remember The Mummy, right? Brendan Fraser doing his best Harrison Ford impression while Arnold Vosloo pranced around in a gold nappy trying to hide his broad South African brogue. Rather good, wasn’t it? You may be surprised to learn it came out in 1999. Some readers of this may not have been born then! The Mummy Returns followed in 2001 and then The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in 2008 (but we don’t talk about that), with a Dwayne Johnson-starring The Scorpion King spin-off wedged in between. Had these films all came out a decade later, chances are they would have been much more of a cinematic universe, which of course are hot stuff these days thanks to Marvel’s successes in the superhero genre. Universal Pictures got into the act last year
