Is Bride Of Frankenstein Back On The Slab?

Thanks to The Avengers and the success that has followed it, the film industry as a whole is seemingly experiencing what we’ll term “Shared Universe Fever,” a condition that is rivaling the Disco Fever that plagued a nation in the 1970’s, and the Hulkamania that followed in the ’80s.

Truth be told, it actually kind of makes sense in Universal’s case, especially when the studio has a license to some of the most iconic monsters around. Really, they’ve been at this for so long that the lore they’ve established for werewolves, vampires and the like has actually overtaken folklore of centuries past, and is somehow now regarded as being canonical among the public at large.

Unfortunately, though, the studio really put the cart before the horse with this whole Dark Universe concept, hoping that their recent reboot of The Mummy would find the same success that

It Looks Like Universal's Bride Of Frankenstein is Going Back Into Development

After Tom Cruise's The Mummy bombed, Universal Pictures had to rethink their whole "Dark Universe" plan. The next film that was supposed to be developed in this Universal Monster cinematic universe was Bride of Frankenstein, but the last we heard, the studio shut down the production and removed it from their release schedule.

The reason for the project being shut down was so that director Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast) and the creative team could rework the script and get the project in a place that everyone is happy with. At the time, Universal said:

"After thoughtful consideration, Universal Pictures and director Bill Condon have decided to postpone Bride of Frankenstein. None of us want to move too quickly to meet a release date when we know this special movie needs more time to come together. Bill is a director whose enormous talent has been proven time and again,

At age 46, Mark Wahlberg is still as obsessed with fitness as ever — though he admittedly has to make some concessions to his aging body.

“I don’t play basketball anymore because I don’t want to roll an ankle and miss a movie or screw up my golf game,” Wahlberg tells Men’s Health for the cover of their Jan./Feb. issue, on newsstands Dec. 26.

But other than skipping out on basketball games, the actor is still working out regularly.

“I’m doing twice a day and jumping rope,” Wahlberg says. “If I wake up at 3:30, I can go

Intense New Trailer for Waco with Taylor Kitsch and Michael Shannon

This upcoming six-part series Waco being developed by Paramount Network looks really good. We've got an intense new trailer for you to watch today that gives us a better look at the series and the story that it will tell.

Best Films About Veterans’ Return Home

Best Films About Veterans’ Return Home
Hollywood loves war movies. Many great films depict people during combat, in various wars: Wwi (“Paths of Glory”), WWII (“Hacksaw Ridge,” “Saving Private Ryan”), Korea (“Mash”), Vietnam (“Platoon,” “Deer Hunter,” “Full Metal Jacket”), and the Middle East (“The Hurt Locker,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Lone Survivor”). There are also Pow movies, including “Stalag 17,” “Bridge on the River Kwai” and “The Great Escape.” But it’s much rarer to find films that depict a person’s return to civilian life. So here are some American movies, all English-language that depict that situation. Some of these films do indeed depict scenes in battle, but the crux of the movie is the return home.

‘Only the Brave’ Taps Trump Digital Guru Brad Parscale (Exclusive)
Brad Parscale, the digital media director for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, was hired by the makers of “Only the Brave” to help the action-drama appeal to red-state moviegoers, Variety has learned.

Black Label Media, the film’s financier, retained Parscale to supplement online and social media marketing efforts. Sony Pictures is distributing the $38 million production, which is on track to open to a weak $6 million when it debuts this weekend. “Only the Brave” centers on a crew of firefighters battling the Yarnell Hill Fire in June 2013. It was one of the worst wildfires in American history, having killed 19 firefighters.

“Black Label Media used several different data analytics firms and consultants to test new marketing approaches to complement Sony’s marketing efforts on the film with the goal to reach the broadest possible audience,” Black Label Media said in a statement to Variety.
