Gore Verbinski To Direct Channing Tatum In ‘Gambit’

6 October 2017 3:57 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Pirates Of The Caribbean and Rango director Gore Verbinski will direct Channing Tatum in the Gambit movie. News reaches us from Deadline that Verbinski has landed the gig for the movie, a spin-off from the X-Men series that has been in development over at 20th Century Fox for quite some time.

Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt were previously attached to helm.

The film will see Tatum play Remy LeBeau, the suave mutant from New Orleans who can turn objects into projectiles, including, yes, a deck of cards. The project is apparently a high-priority for the studio, so will probably roll into production sooner rather than later.

There’s not too much information or release dates, specific story details or any other casting info at this stage. Josh Zetumer wrote the screenplay.

We will bring you more on the Gambit movie as we get it.

An Awesome Fan Made Gambit Poster Has Already Hit The Web

5 October 2017 8:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even though I probably wouldn’t count him as being among my favorite mutants, I can’t help but be intrigued by the prospect of a Gambit movie. After all, if you were also a kid growing up in the 1990’s, then you no doubt remember how he was a prominent member of the team in not only the comic books, but in the highly revered X-Men: The Animated Series as well.

Even so, it became quite hard to have faith in this project after it spent several years in developmental hell. But to our delight, things seemed to get back on track earlier today with word coming down that none other than Gore Verbinkski (The Ring, Rango) has been enlisted to direct the picture, which is set to star Channing Tatum. Having also helmed a few of the Pirates of the Caribbean films in his day, one would think »

The behind the scenes battles of Pirates Of The Caribbean

24 May 2017 2:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison May 25, 2017

The Pirates Of The Caribbean movies have not been easy films to make....

As Michael Bolton once belted out: “This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow.” The Pirates Of The Caribbean film was a surprise sleeper hit in 2003, astounding the higher-ups at Disney who had long been sceptical of how a pirate movie, based on a ride at Disneyland, would appeal to audiences.

Off the back of this success, the sequels only got more ambitious and expensive in scale, with their use of practical effects and convoluted character dynamics serving to complicate the adventure format, with mixed results. It shouldn't shock you then, to hear that each of the movies released so far had some serious behind-the-scenes battles to make them shipshape.

The fifth and apparently final instalment, Salazar's Revenge (or Dead Men Tell No Tales), has had some very public battles before it has even been released, »

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

10 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

Top 20: Films to see in 2017

29 March 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We are a few months into 2017 and already we had a number of standout movies like Get Out, Logan, and The Lego Batman Movie. Hopefully that is just the start of what is to come. Considering that, myself and Kevin – the hosts of podcast Cinema Geeks – combine forces to put a list together of 20 movies to watch in 2017.

Let us know what you think of the list in the comments below. Did they leave any off? Are the rankings off base? Let your voice be heard!

20) The Lost City of Z

What Can Go Right: A film with this type of setup sure would have to be bungled in order for it not to work. It describes the life of British explorer Percy Fawcett who made several attempts to find an ancient lost city in the Amazon and disappeared in 1925 along with his son. It should be in good hands »

Review: Don't Drink the Water—Gore Verbinski's "A Cure for Wellness"

22 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Jason Isaacs as Dr. Volmer in A Cure for WellnessIt starts with a whispered melody. It will send frissons of familiarity, of a kind of upsetting longing for clarity. You know that song the odd English girl is singing, but you can't place it. Neither can Lockhart (Dane DeHaan, who they might have called Lockjaw, as he can barely seem to spit his words out), which is what draws him into the guts of a mystery. And it draws the film into a slithering spiral, compels us to observe an autopsy of modern horror. What half-remembered giallo fugue is Gore Verbinski spooning up for us like medicine, pinioned to our chairs like one of the zombie patients in the film’s sinister clinic? A puzzle picture, a conspiracy thriller, a kind of baroque classical nightmare, A Cure For Wellness is too sturdy, busy and sure of itself to be much of a horror film. »

Exclusive: Gore Verbinski on traditional horror, Dane DeHaan’s honesty and being disengaged with franchises

21 February 2017 9:53 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

After his success on bigger movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and The Ring, Gore Verbinski returns behind the camera to bring us A Cure For Wellness, a project that the director helped to create with writer Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road). You can read Stefan Pape’s review of the film here.

The film follows Lockhart (DeHaan), a Wall Street stockbroker who travels to the Swiss Alps to find his company’s CEO from a medical centre that is surrounded in mystery and soon he begins to suspect that not everything is what it seems. For Verbinski, who co-wrote the story, it was the traditional nature of the horror genre that excited him with the project rather than going for “jump scares”:

‘The Great Wall,’ Isn’t: Why All Three President’s Day Releases Flopped

19 February 2017 12:55 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Great Wall” (Universal) fared best among the three new original debuts this week. But at $18 million, it fell short of what was needed to boost this very expensive Chinese production aimed at international markets (while making American audiences see it as nothing out of the ordinary).

Even so, it did better than the disappointing Ice Cube comedy “Fist Fight” (Warner Bros.) or Gore Verbinski’s disastrous “A Cure for Wellness” (20th Century Fox), which barely made the Top 10. But any heft came from decent holdovers from last weekend’s unprecedented trio of $30 million+ openers.

That’s the good news. The bad is this is a Top Ten that compares miserably with 2016, and represents a further decline in year-to-date totals. Even if they aren’t in actual free fall, they’re showing serious weakness.

Review: A Cure For Wellness [Monte’s Take]

17 February 2017 2:19 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Director Gore Verbinski has crafted quite an interesting career. After striking genre gold with the remake of the Japanese horror film Ringu, orchestrating one of Disney’s most successful franchises with Pirates of the Caribbean, and continuing his collaboration with Johnny Depp on the animated film Rango and the reboot of The Lone Ranger, Verbinski was poised to do whatever he wanted to do with his next film, and it doesn’t take long to realize this quality in the director’s new film, A Cure for Wellness.

For nearly two and a half hours, Verbinski compiles a beautiful, confounding, and chaotic medley of his favorite and most influential film scenes recreated. One moment you are whisked away on a train ride through the Swiss Alps in a moment of stunning scenery, the next you are offered images of unnerving and repulsive situations. It’s undeniable that Verbinski and director »

Film Review: ‘A Cure For Wellness’ Provides a Much-Needed Temporary Fix

17 February 2017 9:56 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Gore Verbinski is no stranger to the spooky. He always creates these tense, terror-filled scenes that effectively frighten us. His films, from “Ring” to “Rango”, each are compelling enough to keep our attention, not matter how absurd they transform into. Boy, does he ever deliver in the gorgeously grotesque “A Cure for Wellness.”

Rating: 3.0/5.0

I grew up in what can easily be considered the golden era of fucked up cartoons. My formative years were filled with outrageous, absurdist shows like “Ren & Stimpy,” “Rocko’s Modern Life,” “Aaahh!!! Real Monsters,” and “Courage the Cowardly Dog.“ Each of them probably has something to do with my macabre sensibilities and Gore Verbinski perfectly mirrors my own predilections. The most powerful part of any Verbinski is the visual storytelling and “A Cure for Wellness” proves that he works best when the camera tells the story for him. The best way to describe his »

Bioshock: why the film collapsed

Simon Brew Feb 17, 2017

Director Gore Verbinski tells the story of how the plug was pulled on the film, just weeks before filming was set to begin...

A big screen adaptation of the Bioshock videogame series came painfully close to happening. Director Gore Verbinski was attached, and was close to physical production started, when Universal Pictures ultimately pulled the plug.

Since then, Verbinski has moved on to films such as Rango and The Lone Ranger. And now he’s put together A Cure For Wellness, that lands in cinemas later this month. In a Reddit Ask Me Anything session, Verbinski was asked just what happened with the Bioshock movie, and why it fell apart. He was candid with his answer.

Not one to shy away from an ambitious directorial challenge, during our interview, Verbinski discussed bringing the unknown back to big screen horror, what fueled his desire to tackle a wholly unique story after years of bringing popular properties to life, and how A Cure for Wellness is his own twisted version of a fairy tale.
