The Hollywood Reporter has learned that James Badge Dale has signed on for the lead role in 20th Century Fox's upcoming film adaptation of Cullen Bunn & Vanessa Del Rey's graphic novel The Empty Man. The story follows an ex-cop, plagued by the violent death of his wife and son, who battles to find a missing girl but soon discovers a sinister presence around him. Up-and-comer David Britten Prior will helm the project from his own script, which will deviate somewhat from the original six-issue miniseries. Boom! Studios' Ross Richie & Stephen Christy will produce and the studios are looking at a fall start date in South Africa. Badge Dale is of course best known to comic book movie fans for his role as the villainous Eric Savin in Iron Man 3.

'Tarzan', 'BFG' and 'Purge 3' Will be No Match for 'Finding Dory'

30 June 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

July 4 fell on a Saturday last year, resulting in an Independence Day weekend without an extended holiday. Thanks to 2016 being a Leap Year, July 4 moves to Monday and we're looking at a four-day holiday weekend that not only includes the third weekend for the high-powered performance of Disney and Pixar's Finding Dory, but three new wide releases. However, like last weekend, this week's freshman class will be jostling for runner up position as Dory is looking at a three-peat atop the weekend chart. Meanwhile WB's The Legend of Tarzan and Steven Spielberg's The Bfg*and their combined budgets totaling $320 million*may have a hard time taking down Universal's The Purge: Election Year, which was made for a mere $10 million. After crossing $300 million in just 12 days, Finding Dory enters its third weekend ready to rule once again. After a 46% drop in its second weekend (42% without including Thursday previews) a holiday »

The Preview Reel: Can Tarzan Purge the Bfg?

29 June 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to another “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. Every year, the Fourth of July holiday always provides movie going audiences with some of the year’s biggest blockbusters, and while this year might seem a little tamer than years past, there are still some interesting options. David Yates looks to put his own spin on the classic Tarzan tale with The Legend of Tarzan, Steven Spielberg brings Ronald Dahl’s classic book to life with The Bfg, and the Purge gets political with Purge: Election Year.

  The Legend of Tarzan

What we are excited about:

Harry Potter is one of the most successful movie franchises of all time, so it’s no surprise that Warner Bros. would trust veteran Harry Potter director David Yates with another one of their summer tentpoles. Yates directed the last four Potter installments, including the best received of the series, »

How Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's Difficult Divorce Could Impact Their Careers

4 June 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Will the shocking allegations surrounding Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's acrimonious divorce affect their careers? On Depp, veteran box office tracker Paul Dergarabedian says, even with accusations of domestic abuse levied against him, "Johnny is a huge star, he's a huge brand. This is not a good thing, but is this something that will dog his career forever? If history tells us anything, it's very doubtful." One veteran Hollywood insider agrees, but says it won't be as simple as hoping that time will make audiences forget about the scandal. "He's going to need to do a big sit-down with »

Anatomy of a Flop: 'Alice Through the Looking Glass'' disastrous performance, explained

31 May 2016 6:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With a gross of around $35 million over the four-day Memorial Day weekend, Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass fell far short of analysts' expectations and is well on its way to becoming one of the year's biggest flops. So how did the James Bobin-directed sequel fall so short of its predecessor's massive $116 million opening weekend? HitFix reached out to box office experts to contextualize the film's disappointing performance.  "Alice was a disaster any way you look at it," bottom-lined Box Office Guru founder Gitesh Pandya. "It was not a sequel that audiences were asking for in the first place and the final product was dull which led to bad reviews. Hence, there was no must-see factor." In terms of competition, Looking Glass went up against the mega-sequel X-Men: Apocalypse (which also underperformed relative to expectations despite handily finishing at No. 1) this weekend, which would understandably lead many to assume »

3 Ways Johnny Depp Can Save His Career

31 May 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s been a pretty bad week for Johnny Depp. While there.s been some accusations made against the actor that we won.t go into here, yet another one of his films has opened to a tepid box office response, which highlights just how far his star status has fallen.  Johnny Depp now hasn.t led a box-office barnstormer since 2011.s Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Since then, The Rum Diary, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, Mortdecai, Black Mass and now Alice Through The Looking Glass have either been a flop, performed poorly or have been critically savaged. While it.s hugely disappointing to see Johnny Depp struggling so badly to create films that resonate with a mainstream audience, he.s still undeniably talented. Johnny Depp just needs to make some slight adjustments to get back on track. Thankfully for the three time Oscar nominee, I »

Can Johnny Depp’s Reputation Recover From Abuse Accusations?

31 May 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For almost thirty years, Johnny Depp has thrived as one of our most beloved and popular box office stars. But just as his latest feature, Walt Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” was being released worldwide last week, allegations of domestic abuse were put forth by his estranged wife, Amber Heard, raising questions about his career and reputation going forward. (The allegations came just days after Heard filed for divorce — and asked for spousal support — following a 15-month marriage.)

Depp was performing in Lisbon with his band Hollywood Vampires when Heard made her allegations. In his absence, his attorney, Laura Wasser, said in a court declaration that “Amber is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”

A swarm of media converged on Los Angeles Superior Court on May 27 to cover the proceedings, in which a judge granted Heard a temporary restraining order that requires Depp to stay 100 yards away. »

Box Office: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Tops With $80 Million, ‘Through the Looking Glass’ Bombs

30 May 2016 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

X-Men: Apocalypse” easily topped the Memorial Day weekend box office, racking up a commanding $80 million over the four-day period in an otherwise forgettable holiday for the movie business.

Its victory came at the expense of  “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” which is shaping up to be one of the year’s biggest bombs. The follow-up to 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland” eked out $34.2 million over the four-day holiday, a far cry from the $116.1 million debut of the first film, and a disastrous start for a pricey movie.

Final numbers are still being tallied, but even though this year’s Memorial Day topped last year’s holiday, it trails the record of $314.2 million established in 2013. That weekend saw a clash between “Fast & Furious 6” and “The Hangover III,” and while this edition also fielded a high-profile matchup between “X-Men” and “Alice in Wonderland” sequels, overall ticket sales were somewhat disappointing.

​Why Did 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' Tank at the Box Office?

29 May 2016 9:29 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It was supposed to be a competitive race this weekend, with two blockbuster sequels grabbing large hauls of Memorial Day weekend dollars. But it wasn't even close. As the holiday revelry ends, "X-Men: Apocalypse" stands as a modest superhero hit, while "Alice Through the Looking Glass" has fallen down the rabbit hole.

"X-Men" always had the edge, as it was opening on 400 more screens than "Alice." As it turned out, it debuted near the low end of expectations, with an estimated $65.0 million through Sunday and a likely $80 million for the four-day weekend. That's not up to the franchise's usual standards, but it's not terrible.

And it's far better than "Alice," which mustered only an estimated $28.1 million through Sunday, with a projected four-day weekend of $35.6 million. For a movie that cost a reported $170 million to make, that's a catastrophe.

What happened? Was "Alice" a foreseeable disaster? In some ways, although it »

"Alice" Sequel Headed For Costly Bust?

27 May 2016 2:06 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the past few years as Disney has essentially become a nuclear superpower in its own right, the studio has had a steady stream of hits both critically and commercially. Yet there's always seemingly one or two films a year that rain on its parade.

These include 2010's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," 2011's "Mars Needs Moms," 2012's "John Carter," 2013's "The Lone Ranger," 2014's "Muppets Most Wanted," and 2015's "Tomorrowland" which were all notable (and costly) duds for the Mouse House.

Now, industry projections have revised the numbers for its Memorial Day release "Alice Through the Looking Glass" downward with Deadline reporting that the $170 million budgeted fantasy sequel is looking to take in just $31 million for the three-day weekend and $40 million for the four-day holiday.

That's considerably down on the $60 million estimates being bandied about earlier this week. Domestically the movie is on track to earn just $9 million on Friday, including »

Johnny Depp's 7 Weirdest Antics Over the Years

27 May 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Johnny Depp has for years often acted, well, weird. And not just on the big screen. In addition to his many memorable and strange roles in Tim Burton movies such as Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as well as films such as Disney's The Lone Ranger and the new Alice Through the Looking Glass, the Oscar-nominated actor has exhibited peculiar behavior many times in interviews and other public appearances. In fact, many find that the popular star is a treat to watch at all given times, because you never know what he'll do next. For example...remember... 1.

Joe Corallo: When You’re Strange…

3 May 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past weekend Captain America: Civil War raked in an impressive two hundred million dollars. That feat was made more impressive by the fact that the movie had not come out in the United States yet or even China, the second largest market for Hollywood movies. The past week has also seen a resurgence in public outcry against Tilda Swinton’s casting as The Ancient One in Doctor Strange which had at least one person attached to the film citing casting as something that would impact the film’s performance in foreign markets.

China’s dominance in the Hollywood market is a fairly new occurrence. It was only a few years ago when China surpassed Japan to become the second largest market for these movies, with eyes on becoming the largest. We’ve seen some of the effects of this development already at Marvel with the handling of Iron Man 3. »

Joe Corallo: Shell Game

19 April 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This was supposed to be a lighter column for me. I had seen Iggy Pop play over at The Capital Theatre in Port Chester last Thursday. I was going to write about how it was an absolutely incredible show, talk a bit about Iggy Pop’s career and how he was a major influence on the comic book series The Crow. Then I read this. And this. I saw friends of my get incredibly upset over this. Hell, I’m upset too. So without putting up much of a fight with myself, I decided this week I’d tackle the growing embarrassment that is the Ghost In The Shell live action adaptation.

Ghost In The Shell was one of the first anime movies I had watched. When I was a kid, I grew up on Voltron, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, and many others. The Sci-Fi channel (before it was »

Why Max Landis is wrong about Scarlett Johansson's 'whitewashed' Ghost in the Shell remake

18 April 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Box office failure for Pan, Gods of Egypt, The Lone Ranger and Aloha really should have taught Hollywood that race-swapping is never the answer – no matter how big the star involved

Are we supposed to have sympathy for the Hollywood screenwriter Max Landis after he was accused of defending Scarlett Johansson’s casting in the upcoming live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell? Well, perhaps a little bit. Landis, with his impromptu YouTube “vlog”, was merely trying to explain the twisted thinking that goes on when studios make the decision to “whitewash” famous roles, the clink-clank of Hollywood machinery that over the past year has given us Johansson as Major Kusanagi, Scotsman Gerard Butler as the Egyptian deity Set (in Alex ProyasGods of Egypt) and Rooney Mara as Native American princess Tiger Lily (in Joe Wright’s Pan).

Mike Gold: Do Comics Belong In Comics?

13 April 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I am not a sociologist, although I’ve known a few. But let’s assume the fact that “superheroes” (in the broadest sense) fill a need in our lives. They started out in folk lore, they appear in most if not all bibles, they were popularized in the “penny dreadfuls” which evolved into pulp magazines which evolved into comic books.

Tarzan, Sherlock Holmes, Zorro and others helped populate the movie theaters going back to its earliest days back to the silent era. When talkies came around, superheroes became the backbone of the short movie serials that were geared to bring patrons back week after week. Flash Gordon, Captain Marvel, Superman, Batman, Blackhawk, Captain America, Spy Smasher and others joined Zorro and Tarzan in this venue. When network radio came along, comics characters from older media (Superman, The Shadow) joined original creations (The Lone Ranger, Green Hornet) and flourished in the just-home-from-school time slots. »

Disney’s Alan Horn Uses Low-Key Approach, Keen Creative Vision to Find Hits of the Future

11 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Disney’s Burbank headquarters suggests the look of a whimsical, post-modern Parthenon, with columns styled as giant “Snow White” dwarves, then a sixth-floor screening room might be the building’s most sacred shrine. At least to Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn.

It’s to a modest, three-row theater that the man who oversees Disney’s hit-making factory retreats to get an early look at the would-be blockbuster movies of tomorrow, from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Captain America: Civil War” to “The Jungle Book” and “Finding Dory.” Horn comes to the theater carrying only two possessions: a totemic brand of pencil (more on that later) and a notepad. “I get to look at the very, very first cut,” he says, pausing to relish the thought. “That is heaven for me.”

The humble trappings belie the status of one of the most powerful figures in media. His position at the forefront of U. »
