In a Nutshell: Ninja Apocalypse

19 September 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Remember that level in Streets of Rage where you battle a horde of bad guys on a lift as you make your way up to the final boss? That's what Ninja Apocalypse reminded me of. But without the awesomeness. Obviously. Ninja Apocalypse isn't a bad film by any stretch of the imagination, it's just not a very good one either. Directed by Lloyd Lee Barnett, who worked on the visual effects for big budget pictures like Avatar, Spiderman and The Lord of the Rings, Ninja Apocalypse reads like a goofy concept on paper but takes itself way too seriously for that. Thankfully, as you would expect considering his track record in the industry, Barnett does conjure up some nifty effects work along the way. It's not much but it certainly takes the focus away from the lukewarm action choreography. Framed for assassinating Grandmaster Fumitaka (Shang Tsung from Mortal Kombat), the »

Summer Film Budgets vs. Total Worldwide Grosses

2 September 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

While studios tout records, market share and No. 1 status based on box office grosses, we thought it’d be a good idea to look at some of this year’s summer films (tentpoles and not) to see how their budgets stacked up against their worldwide grosses to date. These budget numbers do not include domestic/international marketing and distribution costs, nor do they take into account the splits with exhibitors, but they do give an idea of outlay and income. Bear in mind, that while some of the biggest offshore grosses come from China, the studios are only getting a 25% cut from that territory. Also, some of these pictures will end up doing well in home entertainment and may make a profit over time — as in, a few years.

Here are some of the films we were able to compile from smallest to highest budgets with worldwide grosses (and percentage »

"Edge Of Tomorrow" Passes Box-Office Milestone

2 September 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The critics really liked it, international audiences checked it out, but in the United States it seemed no-one was catching the Tom Cruise-led "Edge Of Tomorrow" in cinemas and many wrote it off as a flop on launch.

Yet, rather sneakily, the film has stuck around and this week officially crawled past the $100 million mark at the U.S. domestic box-office. That is significant as according to Box Office Guru, this marks the first Cruise-led film outside the "Mission: Impossible" franchise to have done so since 2005's "War of the Worlds".

Yes, 'Edge' has outpaced "Jack Reacher" ($80M) "Knight and Day" ($76M), "Oblivion" ($89M), "Rock of Ages" ($38M), "Valkyrie" ($83M) and "Lions for Lambs" ($15M) domestically. "Tropic Thunder" ($110M) did pass the mark, but Cruise was not the lead in that and it wasn't marketed on his involvement.

Considering 'Edge' opened to around $28 million, it has made three-and-a-half times »

DC superhero movies that never got the greenlight

27 August 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may be in the golden age of superhero cinema, but here are some DC movies that never made it…

Naysayers would have you believe that Hollywood chucks bucket-loads of cash at any old comic book movie pitch that happens to float through their corner-office window, get stuck to their shoe or come to them miraculously as an on-the-toilet epiphany.

However, this is not the case, particularly with DC comics characters. While some films that do get made may seem like bog-fodder (oh hey, Green Lantern), there are plenty of comic adaptation pitches, in-development scripts and passion projects that have ended up not getting made for various reasons.

We had a rummage through the aeons of DC cinema history (also known as extensive Googling) and pulled together all the comic book movie projects we could find that ended up in the bin of crushed dreams for Batman, Superman and more. »

Tom Cruise Films 'Mission Impossible 5' On The Roof Of Vienna State Opera

20 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Tom Cruise proved he doesn’t have a fear of heights on Thursday, as he was pictured climbing across the roof of the Vienna State Opera House while filming scenes for Mission Impossible 5.

Tom Cruise Films 'Mission Impossible'

Strapped into a harness, Cruise climbed out onto the opera house to shoot a stunt scene for the latest Mission Impossible movie. Under the yellow and black harness, Cruise was outfitted casually in a tight gray t-shirt, dark jeans and brown lace-up shoes, and completed his look with a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses.

Joining Cruise atop the landmark in the Austrian capital was his costar Rebecca Ferguson. Clad in a black shirt, black pants and sneakers, the actress furtively stepped onto the roof’s platform.

In between shots, Cruise was pictured chatting with Ferguson, as well as with director Christopher McQuarrie, who previously directed Cruise in Jack Reacher. McQuarrie has also »

Ving Rhames Will Be Back For 'Mission: Impossible 5'

18 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Longtime fans of the Mission: Impossible film series should appreciate this.

Director Christopher McQuarrie has taken to twitter to announce that Ving Rhames, the only M: I star not named Tom Cruise to appear in all of the films so far, will be back for the fifth installment. Rhames's Luther Stickell first appeared as an ace computer hacker in the original film, which was directed by Brian De Palma. Since then, his role has become smaller- sometimes only appearing in a single scene for a quick cameo.  

Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary

— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014

No word yet on whether his role will be more substantial this time, as the plot details for the film have been kept tightly under wraps. Expectations for the movie are pretty high, though, considering that the last one, Ghost Protocol, singlehandedly revived the franchise- which many had thought »

Kristen Bell's Hilarious Tweets Will Make You Roll on the Floor Laughing

Kristen Bell has made us laugh in Veronica Mars and Frozen, but she's also hilarious offscreen. In addition to being an actress, loving wife to Dax Shepard, and mom to her daughter Lincoln (and a baby on the way), she's basically a stand-up comedian on Twitter.

'Turn' showrunner on the fireworks that await in season 2

4 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The first season of AMC’s Turn wasn’t exactly the shot heard ’round the world. Facing a slate of popular Sunday-night competition like Game of Thrones and The Good Wife, Craig Silverstein’s Revolutionary War drama had to fight for respect—something it ultimately won with a riveting finale that helped secure a second season. Jamie Bell stars as Abraham Woodhull, a Long Island cabbage farmer initially straddling the fence as the American uprising turns into a full-fledged war. His father (Kevin McNally) and wife (Meegan Warner) are staunch Tory loyalists; his childhood friends, including the love of his »

Christopher McQuarrie Talks ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and the Unexpected But Necessary Narrative of Filmmaking

3 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

At the start of Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow our hero, Major Bill Cage (Tom Cruise), is a coward. He’s more than ready to run from a fight he knows he’s not equipped for. That’s not the kind of hero we expect from a blockbuster, but it’s the type of subversive choice we should expect from screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who had a hand in bringing Hiroshi Sakurazak’s graphic novel, All You Need Is Kill, to the big screen. A protagonist unwilling to help save the world isn’t the only fresh idea in Edge of Tomorrow. Even when Cage becomes a fierce soldier, he’s still no match for the bad-ass helicopter-blade-wielding Rita Vrastaski (Emily Blunt). She is the hero of this movie. Vrastaski drives the story. Cruise, once again playing a role a lot of movie stars would pass on, consistently pushed for his co-star to be this film’s »

‘Downfall’s Oliver Hirschbiegel Plots Story Of Failed Hitler Assassin ‘Georg Elser’

3 July 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel is returning to familiar territory with Nazi-era drama Georg Elser. Billed as an emotional portrait of the resistance fighter who tried to assassinate Adolf Hitler in the Munich Bürgerbräukeller on November 8, 1939, the film kicked off shooting yesterday in Wackershofen/Southern Germany. Not to be confused with the July 20, 1944, assassination plot against Hitler that was the subject of Bryan Singer’s 2008 film Valkyrie, Elser’s attempt came five years earlier during what was expected to be a lengthy speech given by the Nazi leader for the anniversary of the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch.

Edge of Tomorrow Review: Redemption on the Grandest Scale

15 June 2014 8:09 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Director Doug Liman's Sci-Fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow finds the world at war with an alien race known as Mimics. The Mimics have invaded Earth and laid waste to most of Europe. As the Mimics head toward the United Kingdom to continue their path of destruction, the United Defense Force is preparing a major offensive on the shores of France in an effort to halt the offensive.

War is always a tough sell to the masses, but Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) has used his megawatt smile and killer charm to effectively do so. His slick ways have also helped him avoid taking part in any sort of actual combat against the Mimics.

When Cage is informed by a general named Brigham (Brendan Gleeson) that his next round of winning the hearts and minds involves being sent to the frontlines of the upcoming battle to cover it, Cage tries »

You'll Never Guess Which Country Loves Tom Cruise the Most

11 June 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Which country loves Tom Cruise the most? The movie geeks over at Vulture have crunched the data. Yes, Cruise's newest offering, Doug Liman's "Edge of Tomorrow," got steamrolled here in the U.S. over the weekend, bringing in just $29 million, well behind box office champ "The Fault in Our Stars" and week-old "Maleficent." So typically these days Warner Bros. is relying on the fact that nearly 78 percent of the gross so far--$111 million-- has come from international sales. In other words, overseas audiences love Tom Cruise. Vulture dug deeper through the box office data on Cruise's last 10 starring roles (Collateral, War of the Worlds, Mission: Impossible III, Valkyrie, Knight & Day, Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, Rock of Ages, Jack Reacher, Oblivion, and Edge of Tomorrow) and broke down the grosses by country. Yes, he's big in Japan.But Japan, with $251 million, takes a distant second to the country that spent »

Which Country Loves Tom Cruise the Most?

10 June 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow got smoked at the American box office over the weekend, finishing in third place behind The Fault in Our Stars and the week-old Maleficent. But even though the thing reportedly cost $178 million to make and earned only a measly $29 million in the U.S., it's no failure — because when you factor in foreign grosses, it's already made $140 million and should turn a profit shortly. It was the weekend's top-grossing movie worldwide because international audiences love Cruise, even if, since he jumped on Oprah's couch and blasted Brooke Shields's Paxil prescription, domestic ones have been lukewarm. But which country loves him the most? We crunched the numbers for his last ten starring roles (Collateral, War of the Worlds, Mission: Impossible III, Valkyrie, Knight & Day, Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, Rock of Ages, Jack Reacher, Oblivion, and Edge of Tomorrow) and — assuming you're not stuck »
