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

17 hours ago | 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. »

Channing Tatum Says “I’m About as in as I Could Possibly Be” for Gambit; Hopes to “Change Up” the Superhero Movie

6 June 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though the “McConaissance” is all the rage at the moment, actor Channing Tatum has been undergoing a pretty impressive career transformation of his own over the past couple of years.  After working in films like Step Up, Dear John, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra early in his career, Tatum started taking some big risks with excellent payoffs.  Director Steven Soderbergh brought out a different side of the actor in Magic Mike, Haywire, and Side Effects, he proved to be fantastically adept at comedy with standout roles in 21 Jump Street and This Is the End, and he drew raves for his dramatic work in the dark drama Foxcatcher at that film’s Cannes premiere last month.  With these eclectic performances under his belt, Tatum now has his eyes set on something many other actors are vying for: his own superhero movie. Tatum has been keen on playing the X-Men »

Channing Tatum: I almost played Gambit in ‘X-Men: The Last Stand'

21 May 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) When longtime "X-Men" franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner last week confirmed that Channing Tatum has been cast as Gambit, it wasn’t the announcement that was so surprising — she and the actor have long made their interests clear — but rather the way it was made. When’s the last time plans for a film, and a potential franchise, were trotted out on a press line? However, what perhaps is surprising is that Tatum came close to playing the Cajun mutant eight years ago. In the June issue of "GQ," he reveals he was nearly cast as Gambit early in his acting career, in 2006′s "X-Men: The Last Stand," but then the role was written out of the film. When it came time for the character to make his big-screen debut in 2009′s "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," Tatum was busy with "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," so the part went to Taylor Kitsch. »

Marlon Wayans and Mike Epps Will Play Estranged Brothers In Action-Comedy 'Any Means Necessary'

21 May 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Marlon Wayans and Mike Epps are attached to star in the Sony Pictures buddy action-comedy Any Means Necessary, which tells the story of 2 estranged brothers who pair up to go undercover, according to Deadline. The fact that one brother is a cop (Wayans), and the other is a criminal (Epps), should only add to the drama and comedy. Originally written by David Elliot and Paul Lovett (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), Sony and producer Neal Moritz have tapped Rodney Barnes (who's previously re-writing scripts for Think Like A Man, Think Like A Man 2, and is the Executive Producer of Boondocks) to rewrite the script for Any Means Necessary, as the project becomes a »

Channing Tatum Talks Gambit Role And 'Magic Mike' Sequel

21 May 2014 12:33 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Channing Tatum has two big films opening this summer. First up is the comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, which co-stars Jonah Hill. And later in July, he'll appear in the sci-fi space opera Jupiter Ascending with Mila Kunis. So it's only obvious that Tatum's face would be everywhere right about now (and it is). Tatum is the subject of GQ's June issue, and in it he talks about his obsession for Gambit, which he's set to play in the next X-Men film, and he also dropped a few details on the upcoming Magic Mike sequel.

Last week, it was confirmed that Tatum would be playing Gambit in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse and his own spinoff film. The news first broke when producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that Tatum would be the one playing the role during a press junket for the latest X-Men movie. But it seems that Tatum was always destined to play Gambit. »

Channing Tatum Boards New Crime Thriller

7 May 2014 2:54 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Channing Tatum is a brilliant example of a fantastic actor to rise from obscurity to Hollywood stardom within the last ten years. After initially receiving criticism for poorly chosen roles in lightweight, underwritten films such as G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra and Dear John, Tatum is now one of the most highly regarded actors in Hollywood.

The Magic Mike star will next be seen in this summers Jupiter Ascending and 22 Jump Street, which are both looking to be brilliant popcorn flicks for a hopefully entertaining summer. It seems that the partnership between Tatum and Sony on the latter of his upcoming summer films, has lead to another upcoming project in the pipeline. It is being reported that Tatum will star in a brand new crime thriller for Sony which he will also produce alongside Reid Carolin, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (86th Academy Awards).

‘G.I. Joe 3′ Recruiting A New Director?

5 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Despite the fact that Paramount and Hasbro’s G.I. Joe films have received a largely negative response from critics, they have both been substantial hits at the worldwide box office. This of course has lead to the inevitable third film in the franchise receiving the greenlight, with a release planned for late 2015/early 2016.

Although the original 2009 film G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, was arguably one of the most poorly written and over-the-top films of the last decade, its sequel was a huge improvement. 2013′s G.I. Joe: Retaliation took a different approach to its predecessor and swapped out its cheesy 80′s tone for a much grittier and darker atmosphere. The film also ignored/killed off the majority of the characters from the first instalment, in exchange for the brilliant additions of Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis. Although G.I. Joe: Retalitation still had its issues I thoroughly enjoyed the revamped sequel, »

"The Great Beauty" (Criterion)

What's It About? A blast from the past sends man-about-town Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) reeling and reminiscing about his life and loves in Rome. The 65-year-old writer (of a sort) has had quite a life so far, but has he grown to take the richness of life and Rome for granted?
