Delayed Sequels Have Become Immediate Profits

12 July 2016 7:29 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Can studios really expect theater audiences to keep coming back to old franchises decades after their original release? Looking at data over the last couple decades, the answer has become a resounding yes. This is an in-depth look at why that is. 

We all know that sequels are rarely better than the original film. And sequels of sequels tend to be even worse. Audiences are aware of this fact, which is why traditionally sequels usually gross less in theaters than the original film. If audiences don’t respond to the sequel as well as the original film, they are less inclined to see it more than once, or tell their friends to go see it. 

It becomes a matter of diminishing returns; studios try to eke out as much business from one franchise before it no longer makes financial sense to release another sequel. And with each sequel making less money, »

Do sequels ever really work when decades have passed since the first film?

27 June 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I still haven’t seen Independence Day: Resurgence, and there’s a good chance I won’t. When 20th Century Fox made the decision not to screen the film for Us press in advance of the film’s opening, they sent a very clear message to anyone paying attention, and it’s a message that I believe more and more studios would love to send to critics, especially on their giant event films: not only do we not need you, but we don’t want you. At all. And it’s true. Studios don’t really need to screen movies for critics. It’s a professional agreement that we all participate in, but more and more often, studios screen later and almost begrudgingly. I am amazed how many times this year alone I’ve had to basically beg to even find out when or if a screening is happening. The »

Will 'Independence Day: Resurgence' be this year's 'Jurassic World' - or this year's 'Tron: Legacy'?

17 June 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Independence Day arrived in theaters in the summer of 1996, the monument-destroying blockbuster was a genuine box office phenomenon, grossing over $300 million domestically and $800 million worldwide by the end of its run. Unfortunately for the coffers of distributor 20th Century Fox, a sequel to the film never materialized -- at least until now, with the extremely-belated followup Independence Day: Resurgence slated to hit theaters next Thursday (sans the original film's breakout star Will Smith).  The question now is, can the sequel to one of the '90s biggest hits make an impact in the overcrowded marketplace of 2016 the way Jurassic World managed last summer? Or will its performance be closer to that of Tron: Legacy, which failed to match the heights some had predicted when it hit theaters in 2010? After surveying three box office experts for their thoughts on Resurgence’s box office potential, the answer appears perhaps grimmer than »

‘Godfather of Disco’ Giorgio Moroder on Scoring ‘Tron’ and Other New Forays Into Soundtracks

13 June 2016 5:46 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Godfather of disco” Giorgio Moroder, 76, has been really busy since the release in 2013 of Daft Punk album “Random Access Memories,” featuring his spoken word contribution in a tribute track titled “Giorgio by Moroder.” It generated his fourth Grammy, a globetrotting tour as a superstar disk spinner, and a solo album titled “Deja Vu,” released in 2015. More recently Moroder also revived his glorious career as a soundtrack composer, co-creating the music for Disney’s “Tron Run/r” videogame and for USA network’s TV series “Queen of the South,” set to go on air this summer in America. With current composing partner Raney Schokne, Moroder is also working on the soundtrack for Walter Hill’s upcoming gender reassignment thriller “Tomboy,” which stars Michelle Rodriguez as a male hitman who falls in the hands of a rogue surgeon – played by Sigourney Weaver – who turns him into a woman. He’s also got a new solo album in the works.

Moroder, who was honored on Friday at the American Academy in Rome with a McKim Medal, spoke to Variety about his new forays into crafting soundtracks and the latest twists in his career.

I think ‘Tron’ was the first time you scored a videogame. Was it a challenge?

It’s actually a lot easier than a movie. Because the tracks are a lot shorter. I can compose – say – fifteen-seconds of music; then we do about twenty different mixes of that piece, which the guy who is editing the game can use. It’s all very fast. And you don’t need to watch the visuals while you are composing, because you can’t do anything directly yourself anyway. I’m not saying it’s that easy, but it’s quite different. Also, initially the new ‘Tron’ videogame pieces were short, but then we made them longer. We made eight or nine three-or-four minute tracks.

Can you tell me about ‘Queen of the South’?

It’s about dirt poor Mexican woman who becomes a drug-smuggling queen. She goes from Mexico to Texas and becomes a Scarface-like drug lord character, sort of like a female El Chapo. It has some similarities with Mexican telenovela ‘La Reina Del Sur,’ which starred Kate del Castillo, the actress who was with Sean Penn when he interviewed El Chapo, so I guess it’s all interconnected.

I believe this was your first time scoring a TV series. What was the work like? 

The production sort of wanted the sound and fast rhythm I created in the 1970’s on songs like Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love,” and also Blondie’s “Call Me.” They also really liked my 1980’s work on the “Scarface” soundtrack. Initially I thought to myself: ‘I would have gone for a different sound.’ But now I’m really happy with the way Raney [Schokne] and I did it.

What can you tell me about working on Walter Hill’s ‘Tomboy’?

I met Walter Hill when he produced “Alien.” Right now “Tomboy” is one of my main projects. I’m working on it with Raney Shockne and we are almost done, but I can’t tell you more.

What’s your other main project?

I’m working on a new single with Windy Wagner, which I will be releasing after I finish my dj tour in September. It will be the first single from my next album.

What are the movie soundtracks you’ve done that you are most fond of? 

Well, I haven’t done that many. “Midnight Express” was all synth. It was my first film and is still the closest to my heart because, aside the fact that I won an Oscar for it, I had no idea what Alan Parker wanted. He never told me, so I did pretty much what I wanted. “Scarface” was a great film for me. But there are two really standout films for me. One is the theme I wrote for “Flashdance,” because it encapsulates a complete body of music. The lyrics are good, Irene Cara who sang it, was amazing. It was released before the movie, and it helped the movie. The other is “Take My Breath Away” [from “Top Gun”], that’s the one I like the most from a purely musical standpoint.

How does it feel at your age, to spin discs for such huge crowds?

I really like it. I’ve always wanted to be a performing artist, but my voice wasn’t that great. And I was also afraid of performing. So I never really pursued it. But now I’m not nervous at all. The great thing about it is around 70 percent of the tracks I play are my own, including some new tracks.

Your works have been remixed and covered so much. What’s your favorite redo of ‘I Feel Love’ besides the Donna Summer version?

I love the way violinist Vanessa Mae covered ‘I Feel Love,’ it’s certainly one of my favorite remixes of that song

In tech and gaming we talk a lot about the concept of the “uncanny valley,” which is the idea that the closer a fake human comes to looking like a real human the more uncomfortable it will be to look at — until it’s indistinguishable from the real thing, at which point everything is Ok again. In the world of entertainment, the uncanny valley is nearly always brought up in reference to the way a computer-generated character looks — for example the de-aged Jeff Bridges in “Tron: Legacy or every character in the 2007 “Beowulf” movie.
