Q&A: Makeup & Hair Designer Lizzie Yianni-Georgiou on Bringing the Undead to Life for The Mummy (2017)

12 September 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ahmanet awakens today with the release of The Mummy (2017) on Blu-ray, DVD, 4K Ultra HD, and VOD platforms from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, and for our latest Q&A, I had the chance to catch up with Yianni-Georgiou, one of the artists behind the amazing makeup of The Mummy, to discuss bringing the undead to life (including Sofia Boutella's title character) and looking back at the classic Universal Monsters films for stylistic inspirations.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Lizzie. How did the opportunity to work on The Mummy come about, and what were you drawn to in particular with this project?

Lizzie Yianni-Georgiou: I got recommended to the producers for The Mummy because Guardians of the Galaxy was going to America to be shot. And our producer from Guardians thought he wouldn’t be able to take me with him, so he »

mother! movie review: from Wtf to Stfu

11 September 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Darren Aronofsky’s self-pitying cinematic rending of garments is repulsive, transparent, and pointless. A grotesquely wrapped gift box of utter banality. I’m “biast” (pro): have mostly been a fan of Darren Aronofsky; love Jennifer Lawrence

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I cannot recall the last time a film made me as angry as Darren Aronofsky’s mother! has. Maybe never. (Yes, the title is most emphatically with a lowercase “m” and an exclamation point. And yes, that’s emblematic of what’s making me so angry.) As mother! — *grrr* — unfurled over its two-hour runtime, I found myself actually clenching my jaw with ever-increasing fury as Aronofsky’s head wended its way further and further up his own cinematic ass only to declare just how delicious his farts smell. This is a filmmaker for whom »

Along with The Lion King, Aladdin is one of my all time favorite Disney animated films.  I'm not entirely sure how this adaptation is going to work out in live-action, but I'm eager to find out.  We've know for a while now that Will Smith would be playing the Genie this time around, but now we have a full cast list:

Detroit movie review: racism 101 for white people

31 August 2017 1:11 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Tense, gripping, enraging, but only about things that black Americans already know. This is a primer about racism for white people, and we must pay attention. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Detroit is a movie about racism in America for white people. It mostly does not center black characters except as victims. Its villain — a murderously racist white cop — is also its protagonist. A movie about racism in America for white people isn’t the most terrible idea ever: Detroit wants to show us white people how the systematic weight of endless injustice weighs on black people, psychologically as well as physically, because of entrenched racism, not only of the actively vicious kind but also of the “I’m not getting involved, I’m just minding my own business” kind. »

Alan Arkin Joins Tim Burton’s Dumbo Remake

17 August 2017 4:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dumbo, Disney’s latest live-action remake of one of their classic animated films, has found yet another big name talent to add to its cast.

Variety has confirmed today that Argo‘s Alan Arkin has now signed up for the pic. A legendary actor and one who always impresses, this will mark the second time that Arkin’s teamed up with director Tim Burton, as the pair previously worked together on 1990’s Edward Scissorhands.

He’s not the only Burton regular to be roped in for the project, either. Former Beetlejuice and Batman star Michael Keaton is on board, as is his Batman Returns co-star Danny DeVito (who also worked with Burton on Mars Attacks! and Big Fish). Another Burton regular, Eva Green (Dark Shadows, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), is involved as well, rounding out what’s a very impressive cast.

As you no doubt know, Dumbo »

Michael Keaton confirms Tim Burton reunion on Dumbo

2 July 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in April it was reported that actor Michael Keaton could be set for a reunion with director Tim Burton, albeit on Disney’s live-action Dumbo remake, as opposed to the long-rumoured Beetlejuice sequel.

Well, speaking to Good Morning America to promote the release of his new film Spider-Man: Homecoming, Keaton has confirmed that he is set to play the villain in the new take on the Disney classic.

“I am reuniting with Tim Burton,” said Keaton. “You just want to be around that guy. You want to be in his sphere because he’s original and unique and an artist.”

Keaton and Burton first collaborated in 1988 on Beetlejuice, and followed it up with 1989’s Batman and 1992’s Batman Returns.

Dumbo will also see Keaton reuniting with his Batman Returns co-star Danny DeVito, while Burton regular Eva Green (Dark Shadows, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) is also attached »

Fantastic Four Reboot Planned as a Kids' Movie?

21 June 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Marvel Studios has succeeded in getting back most of the rights to their comic book characters over the past few years, there are still a few big properties that have alluded them, primarily the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Both of these are controlled by 20th Century Fox, which may be eyeing yet another Fantastic Four reboot. Despite the critical and commercial failure of the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot, producer Simon Kinberg teased in February that a Fantastic Four sequel may still happen, although if this new, unconfirmed report is to be believed, that won't be the case. The studio is now reportedly eyeing a Fantastic Four reboot that will have a much different family twist.

The 2015 movie followed younger versions of Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), Susan Storm (Kate Mara) and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell), based on the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics. Bleeding Cool reports that 20th Century Fox has brought on writer Seth Grahame-Smith to write a new Fantastic Four reboot that will go in a different direction than the 2015 movie, centering on Franklin and Valeria, the children of Reed Richard and Susan Storm, with Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm still part of the story as well. This unconfirmed report claims that the whole movie will be more "kid-centric," said to be in the same vein as the Pixar hit The Incredibles.

The 2015 Fantastic Four reboot was a disaster in every possible aspect, earning just $56.1 million domestically and $167.9 million worldwide from a $120 million budget. The low box office returns were paired with reports of unprofessional behavior from director Josh Trank while production was under way in New Orleans, with reports that he almost came to blows with star Michael B. Jordan. Just a few months after the movie hit theaters, there were rumors that Fantastic Four will return to Marvel, with a report claiming that Marvel was planning a reboot for 2020, but that was never verified.

20th Century Fox's original deal with Marvel, which was made in the 1990s when Marvel was selling off the rights to several characters as part of its bankruptcy proceedings, gives them the rights to keep making Fantastic Four movies and X-Men movies for as long as they want. In recent years, Marvel has been able to win back the rights to several of the characters they signed away to rebuild the company, like Ghost Rider, Blade, The Punisher and Daredevil, just to name a few, with a major coup coming in 2015 when they finalized a deal with Sony to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Still, Marvel Studios has not been able to get back Fantastic Four, which reportedly angered Marvel to the point that they even killed off Fantastic Four and X-Men comics.

As for this Seth Grahame-Smith, he is no stranger to the superhero realm, having performed uncredited script polishes for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four. He was also slated to write the screenplay for and make his directorial debut with Warner Bros.' Dceu entry The Flash. He also wrote the screenplays for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, along with the novel it was based on, Dark Shadows, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and this year's hit Lego Movie spin-off, The Lego Batman Movie. As of now, this report about yet another Fantastic Four reboot has not been confirmed, but perhaps we'll hear more about this potential project soon. »

Why Gal Gadot Was Paid Only $300,000 for Wonder Woman

20 June 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you’re following Johnny Depp’s ongoing lawsuit against his business managers — where newly public emails blithely reference Depp’s $20 million paychecks for The Tourist and Dark Shadows, as well as a $35 million offer for the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie — then it might be astounding to learn that Gal Gadot was paid just $300,000 for her star-making performance in Wonder Woman. That Patty Jenkins–directed superhero film is on track to outpace the domestic box-office performance of virtually every film Depp has made, so doesn’t she deserve a salary comparable to that of Hollywood’s top stars? »

Is Tom Hardy Being Eyed For Jafar In The Aladdin Remake?

10 June 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tom Hardy’s in high demand these days, and why wouldn’t he be? He’s without a doubt one of the most talented, electrifying and downright incredible actors in Hollywood, absolutely knocking it out of the park no matter which role he finds himself in. Recently, The Dark Knight Rises star signed on to play Venom for Sony, which will no doubt be a darker and more mature outing for him, but it seems he’s looking to balance that out now with something a bit more kid friendly.

According to The Sun, director Guy Ritchie wants Hardy to play Jafar in the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s Aladdin. The two have worked together before, back in the hugely underrated 2008 crime comedy RocknRolla, so they do have history and that can definitely help make this a reality. From what we understand, the pair have had conversations about the project but at this point, »

Johnny Depp Said No to Female Villain in Pirates of the Caribbean 5

21 May 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

So, it turns out that Johnny Depp might have really changed Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Possibly not for the better. At the very least, this doesn't sound very good on paper. Speaking of not sounding good on paper, the change in question has to do with Depp reportedly rejecting the first script for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales because it featured a female villain. And his reasoning is the real head scratcher.

Veteran screenwriter Terry Rossio recently wrote a very lengthy post on his Wordplayer blog about something he calls "time risk." Buried in this rather lengthy post is a pretty interesting claim. According to him, Johnny Depp not only rejected his draft of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 due to it featuring a female villain, but because he thought that would be too reminiscent of what he did in Dark Shadows. Here's what Rossio had to say about it. »

Johnny Depp Rejected an Early Draft of the Upcoming ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Sequel Because it Had a Female Villain

19 May 2017 2:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Johnny Depp returns this month as Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” Spanish actor Javier Bardem joins the fifth installment of the popular franchise as the villainous Captain Salazar, alongside Geoffrey Rush’s devious Captain Barbossa. But, according to scribe Terry Rossio, an earlier version of the script featured a female villain.

In a recent blog post, where he discusses the hurdles of script writing and movie production, Rossio revealed that Depp rejected that version because it had a female villain. “My version of ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’ was set aside because it featured a female villain, and Johnny Depp was worried that would be redundant to ‘Dark Shadows,’ which also featured a female villain,” Rossie wrote, adding that “there is also the possibility that [the screenplay] simply sucked. »
