Resident Evil: The Final Chapter pushes the franchise past $1 billion

30 January 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite earning the best reviews of the series [although our own Rob Kojder didn’t like it] and the lowest opening weekend of the series, Paul W.S. Anderson and Sony Pictures have a lot to celebrate with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter as the franchise has crossed $1 billion worldwide.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter earned just $13 million from its opening weekend, which wasn’t enough to unseat Split from the top spot, or trouble Hidden Figures and A Dog’s Purpose. However a strong opening overseas has pushed the film to $78 million worldwide.

The film opened to number one in Japan last December.

It should be noted, however, that while Sony are reporting the franchise has pushed $1 billion, Boxofficemojo claim the series has so far earned $994 million. Either way, it will cross $1 billion next week.

John Hurt: Remembering the Master of Outsiders

30 January 2017 5:35 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For a man whose first claim to screen immortality came when an extraterrestrial freak of nature ripped a hole in his chest and screeched bloody murder in Alien, John Hurt was a hell of an actor. "The alien won the Oscar," a laughing Hurt told me nearly three decades later, referring to the Academy Award that Ridley Scott's 1979 film took home for H.R. Giger's visual effects. It might be the only time in his 55-year career that anyone, let alone a creature that looked like a penis with teeth, »

John Hurt, Oscar-Nominated Star of ‘The Elephant Man,’ Dies at 77

27 January 2017 6:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John Hurt, the wiry English actor who played a drug addict in “Midnight Express,” Kane in “Alien,” the title character in “The Elephant Man,” and Winston Smith in “1984” has died. He was 77.

He died on Wednesday at home in Norfolk, his widow, Anwen, confirmed in a statement to Variety. Hurt had disclosed in 2015 that he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Anwen wrote as a tribute, “John was the most sublime of actors and the most gentlemanly of gentlemen with the greatest of hearts and the most generosity of spirit. He touched all our lives with joy and magic and it will be a strange world without him.”

Mel Brooks, executive producer of “The Elephant Man,” tweeted that he was a “truly magnificent talent.”

It was terribly sad today to learn of John Hurt's passing. He was a truly magnificent talent.

John Hurt Dead at 77

Sir John Hurt, the two-time Academy Award nominee whose TV credits included episodes of Doctor Who and the voice of The Great Dragon on BBC One’s Merlin, died on Friday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 77.

Hurt’s TV roles also included Caligula in the BBC’s 1976 miniseries I, Claudius, the 2012 mini Labyrinth, the Kiefer Sutherland-created web-turned-Hulu series The Confession and, most recently, the European crime drama The Last Panthers (which aired Stateside on SundanceTV last spring).

Milla Jovovich expresses interest in playing Cheetara in a ThunderCats movie

9 January 2017 7:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Milla Jovovich is currently doing the interview rounds for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter where she was asked by We Got This Covered which superhero she would love to play.

The actress quickly directed the conversation to the stuck-in-development hell ThunderCats movie, enthusiastically expressing interest in playing Cheetara, but not before admitting she might be getting a little too old to play a superhero.

“I’ve always loved ThunderCats. I heard they were making a movie, and then they weren’t making a movie. And I’m probably getting way to old to play Katra… no, Cheetara, that’s the one!”

Mark Wahlberg also commented on the novelty of the numerous big-budget action sequences, noting, “It’s not as cool as it would be had I been 25. At 45, it’s all pretty strenuous, but I really like that Michael gives me freedom to make the character my own, improvising and bring a lot of humor and elevate the emotion”.

Optimus Goes Evil in First Transformers: The Last Knight TV Spot

7 January 2017 12:54 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The first Transformers: The Last Knight TV spot is just 14 seconds in length, but it sets up the premise of this latest sequel succinctly. Optimus Prime has gone rogue. He's angry. And not above killing his own. The latest video from the Paramount sequel asks fans to choose a side. That might not be so hard after witnessing Optimus kill his longtime friend and comrade in the Autobots army Bumblebee, in what is one of the most shocking franchise twists to date.

Paramount released the first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight at the end of 2016. And its final scene, where Optimus Prime tries to kill Bumblebee, had everyone in awe. While there are theories as to why this is happening, we won't have an official answer until the movie hits theaters on June 23, 2017. A poster released shortly after the trailer showed Bumblebee's arm lying slightly in frame, with »
