Is Martin Campbell In Line To Direct G.I. Joe 3?

20 November 2014 6:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although both movies drew highly negative reviews, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation both pulled in over $300 million apiece for Paramount, making a third installment of the action-adventure franchise all but inevitable. We learned way back in July that Lethal Weapon 4 scribe Jonathan Lemkin had been tasked with scripting G.I. Joe 3, and that Jon M. Chu would not be returning to direct, but outside of that, it’s been radio silence on the threequel. Now, however, there are whispers around the interwebs that Paramount has singled out a replacement for Chu: Casino Royale director Martin Campbell.

According to Schmoes Know, which claims to have learned of the helmer’s possible involvement via the same shadowy but “reliable” source that (rightly) revealed that Michael B. Jordan would be in the Fantastic Four reboot, Campbell is the studio’s top choice and has just entered talks. »

Scott Producing "3001: The Final Odyssey"

3 November 2014 4:17 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Syfy has announced that it is set to adapt Arthur C. Clarke's 1997 novel "3001: The Final Odyssey" into a miniseries which Ridley Scott will executive produce. "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" and "I, Frankenstein" scribe Stuart Beattie will adapt the work.

Clarke penned four novels in his 'Odyssey' series starting with 1968's "2001: A Space Odyssey" which became the famous Stanley Kubrick film which is still considered one of the greatest films ever made.

The second novel, 1982's "2010: Odyssey Two" was adapted in 1984 by Peter Hyams as "2010: The Year We Make Contact," a less meditative and more straightforward sci-fi story starring Roy Scheider, Helen Mirren and John Lithgow. Taken on its own terms, the film is still an excellent piece of genre work that has developed its own cult following.

The third novel, "2061: Odyssey Three," was published in 1987 and wasn't adapted though Tom Hanks was »

Channing Tatum's set for solo spin-off 'Gambit' movie, and now they've got a writer

31 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

These days, it seems hard for me to believe that there was a point where I did not like the work of Channing Tatum. For several of his early movies, I felt like he was a good looking guy with no chops at all, and it didn't seem to me like he was ever going to loosen up. He had some buzz around him when he was in "A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints," and he was certainly busy as the next few years unfolded, starring in films like "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra," "Dear John," "The Eagle," and "Step Up 2: The Streets," but it wasn't until 2011 that I started to come around to what he was doing. "The Dilemma" is a fairly awful film, but Tatum shows up late in the movie and suddenly things start to come to life. Also that spring, "Haywire" came out, and »

See the I, Frankenstein Effects that Never Were

2 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

One of I, Frankenstein's biggest sins was that the creature effects, especially with regard to Frankenstein's monster, were pretty run of the mill. Back in the beginning effects artist Vincent J. Guastini had the reins of this bad boy, but unfortunately it was steered out of his hands.

Now Guastini has uploaded an effects/concept reel of what his vision for the film's creatures would have been like. Gotta say it... we like it so much better. What a shock. Check it out for yourselves, and weigh in below.

About I, Frankenstein

From the producers of Underworld, I, Frankenstein follows Frankenstein's monster (Aaron Eckhart) as he becomes involved in a war between two immortal clans. Also starring Bill Nighy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest), Yvonne Strahovski (TV's "Chuck," TV's "Dexter"), Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, »

Box Office Report: Guardians Of The Galaxy Rule, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Flops

24 August 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After two weekends away from the top spot, the space renegades of Guardians of the Galaxy clinched the #1 position at the weekend box office once again. With $17.6 million in its fourth frame – a small 30% drop from last week’s take, outstanding for a Marvel Studios film – the sci-fi adventure is days away from becoming 2014′s highest-grossing film. (Its $251.9 million gross so far is the biggest of the summer session, having passed Transformers: Age of Extinction‘s North American final on Saturday.) With such a good hold, it is likely the film will re-emerge to the top spot over Labor Day weekend and now stands a good chance of surpassing $300 million if strong word-of-mouth continues.

Dropping to second but continuing its robust run were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, bringing in $16.8 million, for a $145.6 million cume. Later this week, the Paramount film will surpass G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, another »

'Ninja Turtles' Hangs On to First, 'Expendables 3' Tanks On Friday

15 August 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

With The Expendables 3 bombing, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy easily held on to the top two spots at the box office on Friday. Ninja Turtles fell 69 percent to an estimated $7.9 million. That drop is roughly on par with G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which was off 68 percent at the same point. Turtles will pass $100 million sometime today; for the weekend, it should wind up anywhere from $24 to $27 million.Guardians of the Galaxy eased 44 percent to $6.95 million. It passed $200 million yesterday, and in the process moved ahead of Summer 2014 releases Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Godzilla and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. For the weekend, Guardians will likely earn around $24 million.The Expendables 3 opened in third place with an estimated $5.88 million. That's down 44 percent from The Expendables 2, which is a horrible drop for a closely-timed sequel. For the weekend, the third Expendables »

Weekend Report: 'Turtle' Power

10 August 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Ninja Turtles fans old and young showed up at the movies this weekend, driving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to one of the biggest August openings ever.Meanwhile, Guardians of the Galaxy scored the highest second weekend of the Summer so far.The Top 12 earned $174.2 million this weekend, which is up 22 percent from the same frame last year. This August remains on track to be the biggest ever, and could be the first to pass $1 billion.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ruled the box office with $65.6 million this weekend. That ranks fourth all-time in the month of August. It's noticeably higher than G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra ($54.7 million), though 3D premiums and ticket price inflation likely account for most of that gap. The movie also made more in one weekend than 2007 animated Turtles movie Tmnt earned in its entire run.This strong opening can be attributed primarily to the power of the Ninja Turtles brand. »

'Ninja Turtles' Shreds Competition on Friday

9 August 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dominated the box office on Friday with an impressive $25.6 million haul.Turtles opened noticeably higher than G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which took in $22.2 million on essentially the same day back in 2009. Among Summer 2014 releases, Turtles is slightly above 22 Jump Street ($25.1 million) and Maleficent ($24.3 million).Opening weekends have been very front-loaded this Summer, and reviews and word-of-mouth aren't particularly good for Turtles. Still, it does have a ton of appeal with younger audiences, which tends to help boost Saturday/Sunday returns. By Sunday, Turtles will likely have earned anywhere from $62 to $68 million.Guardians of the Galaxy plummeted 67 percent to $12.3 million. That drop is identical to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which fell 67 and 68 percent, respectively. This suggests that the strong reviews and word-of-mouth didn't give Guardians much of a bump. For the three-day weekend, the movie should wind up around $41 million. »

The Weekend Warrior: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Into the Storm, Step Up All In, The Hundred-Foot Journey

5 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

With Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy doing far better opening weekend than anyone expected, it's looking like the four movies opening this weekend will be settling for second to fifth place at best, as it should pull a solid repeat even with the typically larger summer movie second weekend drop-off. The movie with the best chance for second place is the Michael Bay-produced reinvention of the popular .80s cartoon and comic characters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Paramount), starring Megan Fox and Will Arnett, which hopes to kick-off a new franchise ala Transformers and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The three other movies will be fighting to bring in some late summer moviegoers without the draw of what will be the top two movies.

This week's "Chosen One" is the unconventional relationship comedy What If (CBS Films), starring Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan and Adam Driver, with an »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Has Biggest Thursday Box Office Opening of 2014

1 August 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is a hit! Even though it's not officially in theaters until today, it opened for Thursday night preview screenings last night, pulling in an impressive $11.2 million to become the biggest Thursday opener of not only the summer, but the entire year!

To put that into perspective, Marvel's other big movie of the year, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has held onto its biggest Thursday opening of 2014 record all through the summer despite being a spring release, only earned $10.2 million that first night of release. And it was a sequel. It eventually went onto earn $95 million its first weekend in release.

Now coming in third, Godzilla earned $9.3 million, going onto take in $93.2 million during the duration of its first weekend. In fourth place is Transformers: Age of Extinction, with nabbed $8.8 million, but managed to take in the best weekend gross of $100 million. Residing in 5th place »

Nicolas Cage Revenge Film Rage Heading To DVD/Bluray This August!

21 July 2014 11:47 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Nicolas Cage has done a great job choosing roles lately, with great turns in films like David Gordon Green’s Joe and the Paco Cabezas revenge film, Rage (formerly titled Tokarev). The latter, an exceptionally written and directed take on how one’s past can and most likely Will catch up with them is set to hit DVD/Bluray this August 12th, via Image Entertainment. Having seen the film earlier this year, on its VOD run (here), we can definitely vouch for this one, as it’s a pretty intense and emotional, tough as nails thriller. If Cage keeps putting out films like these, then the internet meme persona he’s unfortunately acquired in recent years can finally fade away, making people realize that he’s an exceptional actor (you’re lying if you say that you’re not a fan of Raising Arizona, and his Oscar-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas »

Jonathan Lemkin Tapped To Scribe G.I. Joe 3

1 July 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After G.I. Joe: Retaliation scored at the box office and earned less scorn than its predecessor G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, a third installment was almost inevitable. And now that Skydance and Paramount have set G.I. Joe 3 for release in 2016, the studios are working on putting together a team for the tentpole. Today brings news that Lethal Weapon 4 scribe Jonathan Lemkin has been tapped to pen the screenplay.

Though most of Lemkin’s work has been on the small screen, with writing credits on series like Hill Street Blues and 21 Jump Street, the scribe previously penned The Devil’s Advocate and Shooter. Lemkin is also adapting survival drama The Longest Night from a GQ article of the same name for Frank Marshall to direct.

He’s certainly not experienced with the type of furious, effects-heavy action that will be employed for G.I. Joe 3, but the fact »

Lorenzo Di Bonaventura Says Jon M. Chu Not Directing G.I. Joe 3, Talks Shooting In 2015, New Characters And Story

24 June 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it’s safe to say that none of us look back on Stephen Sommers’ G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra with fond memories, at least Jon M. Chu’s follow-up G.I. Joe: Retaliation was at least a bit more fun – thanks mostly to new star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Retaliation rushed past Rise of Cobra at the box office, earning $375 million as opposed to the first film’s $302 million, which made a third movie an absolute certainty. I’m not sure if any of us here were calling for G.I. Joe 3, but perhaps, seeing as The Rise of Cobra sucked and Retaliation was bearable, third time will be the charm for the franchise.

Sadly, Jon M. Chu will not be returning to direct G.I. Joe 3 – the helmer is currently filming Jem and the Holograms and is next tipped to direct Now You See Me 2. However, according to producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, »

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura Talks G.I. Joe 3, New Characters, and More; Currently Meeting with Directors in Hopes of Filming by Early 2015

22 June 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though many were rightfully skeptical of a movie based on a toyline, the Transformers franchise has become one of the highest grossing series of the last few years, with no signs of slowing down for the fourth installment.  The G.I. Joe series, on the other hand, has had a bit more trouble getting off the ground.  2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra grossed a so-so $302 million, and the series went through a semi-reboot with the 2013 sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  The Jon M. Chu-directed second film fared better at the box office with $375 million worldwide, but there’s still the sense that the series hasn’t taken off just yet, so expectations are high for G.I. Joe 3. Though we know that Chu is not returning to direct the next G.I. Joe film, movement on the pic has been fairly quiet the past few months.  Steve recently spoke with »

Will a 'Transformers' / 'G.I. Joe' Crossover Movie Ever Happen?

21 June 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In this new cinematic age of movie team-ups and giant ensembles like Marvel's The Avengers and DC Comics' Justice League, it makes sense that Hasbro might bring together its two biggest properties for one giant movie experience. Well, don't hold your breath waiting for a Transformers/G.I. Joe movie crossover anytime soon. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura doesn't believe the stars will ever align in order to make this happen.

When asked by MTV about the prospects of Hasbro's toy giants coming together on the big screen, the producer had this to say:

"We haven't spent a moment on it. I know they did it in the comic books, but I think the reality that we're looking at is...It's hard enough to figure out how to do it alone and [then] trying to figure out how to do it together...I don't think that it's as organic as people think. »
