'Black Widow' Gives An "Interview"

6 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Studios' favorite 'Black Widow', as actress Scarlett Johansson poses for more revealing photos in a recent issue of "Interview" magazine:

March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'.

She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Johansson then reprised the role in director Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" (2012) confirming that Marvel was "really behind" the character. She portrayed Black Widow again in the 2014 feature "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

And in the Marvel Studios' sequel "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron", Johansson will play the character on film for an unprecdented fourth time, »

6 Reasons Why Robert Downey Jr. Should Not Be Replaced As Iron Man

27 September 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach with six reasons why Robert Downey Jr. should not be replaced as Iron Man….

Rumour has is that Robert Downey Jr. will say goodbye to the character of Tony Stark after just two more movies, the first of which is next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, followed by a third Avengers film expected in 2017/2018. Many cannot imagine anyone else taking over the iconic role. However, President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has suggested that the role will eventually be recast and this will be a continual process as seen with long-standing franchies such as James Bond and Doctor Who. But Kevin Feige has also expressed the possibility of introducing new Avengers and phasing old ones out, giving characters a definitive ending and avoiding the need to recast.

Despite his immense popularity as Tony Stark, Robert Downey Jr. recently stated in an interview that as an actor playing a character, »

Black Widow Almost Got Her Own Movie Before Iron Man

26 September 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Before Iron Man launched the Marvel cinematic universe, the studio was developing a Black Widow movie with Lionsgate that was going to be released before Iron Man, but the studio killed. 

Spinoff Online offers up the details on what happened, explaining that back in 2004 X-Men screenwriter David Hayter wrote the script for the Black Widow film, and it was supposed to be his directorial debut. Once he completed the screenplay, though, Lionsgate decided to pull out and didn't want to make the film anymore. Hayter explained why,

"Unfortunately, as I was coming up on the final draft, a number of female vigilante movies came out. We had Tomb Raider and Kill Bill, which were the ones that worked, but then we had BloodRayne and Ultraviolet and Aeon Flux. Aeon Flux didn't open well, and three days after it opened, the studio said, 'We don't think it's time to do this movie. »

How A Box Office Bomb Killed The Black Widow Movie

25 September 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thanks to fun roles in Joss Whedon's The Avengers and Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier (and to a lesser extent Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2), Black Widow has been firmly and successfully centered as the female lead of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what you may not know is that there was actually a Black Widow movie in development long before Scarlett Johansson tried on her first pair of stingers... and it was killed by one of the uglier box office bombs of the last decade. Comic Book Resources has a full breakdown Black Widow's long flirtation with live action - which actually dates back to an attempted Daredevil/Black Widow television show back in the 1970s - but the more interesting details are about the Black Widow movie that nearly got made back in 2004. At the time, actor/screenwriter David Hayter »

Box Office Final: ‘Maze Runner’ Finds $32.5M; Liam’s ‘Walk’ Limps In With $12.7M; ‘Where I Leave You,’ $11.5M

22 September 2014 2:12 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, Monday, 2:12 Pm: The fall season is off to a good start, thanks to Fox’s The Maze Runner which opened nicely to $32.5M for the three-day weekend. The next installment of the film, The Maze Runner 2: Scorch Trials, is already set to bow September 18, 2015. While Fox has created another franchise for the industry, Liam Neeson and Universal weren’t so lucky with A Walk Among The Tombstones. The picture didn’t appeal to the female audience — that same demo which helped Non-Stop open to $28.8M earlier this year for the actor. Tombstones ends this weekend with $12.7M. This Is Where I Leave You opened to mediocre numbers after having a less than expected Sunday. It will take in only $11.5M for Warner Bros.

Speaking of franchises, Sony and Denzel Washington hope to launch one next weekend with The Equalizer and those of us who have seen it believe it will happen. »

Weekend Report: 'Maze Runner' Franchise Off to Strong Start

21 September 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Maze Runner sprinted to the front of the pack with one of the biggest September debuts ever; add in strong international sales, and a new young-adult franchise was born this weekend.Meanwhile, A Walk Among the Tombstones and This is Where I Leave You fell short of modest expectations.Playing at 3,604 theaters, The Maze Runner opened to $32.5 million this weekend. That's nowhere close to Divergent, though it is bigger than Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief ($31.2 million) and Ender's Game ($27 million).What separates The Maze Runner from those comparisons is its relatively modest budget*it cost just $34 million, or less than half of those movies*and its strong international prospects. Full international details can be found below in the Around-the-World Roundup.As is always the case with young-adult adaptations, The Maze Runner's success can be attributed in part to the strong fanbase that's developed around author James Dashner's book series. »

The Maze Runner opens to $32.5 million and dominates the Us box office

21 September 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Us box office report for September 21st 2014…

Despite the meagre reviews, Ya novel adaptation The Maze Runner has dominated the competition to top the Us box office, taking in an impressive $32.5 million on its opening weekend. The film averaged around $9,000 across the 3,604 theatres it opened in and with a budget of $34 million, The Maze Runner can be classified as a success. So much so, that 20th Century Fox will probably be looking to announce a sequel very soon…

The $32.5 million for The Maze Runner is not only an impressive number, but it was more than double what the number two spot took. A Walk Among The Tombstones opened in 2,700 theatres and averaged just under $5,000 per screening to earn the movie $13.1 million. Fellow new entry This is Where I Leave You also performed well taking $11.8 million against its $19.8 million budget.

21 September 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

21 September 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After helping to push the total gross of the Marvel Cinematic Universe beyond $7 billion at the global box office earlier this week, the James Gunn directed space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now overtaken the North American haul of Iron Man 2 to become Marvel Studios’ fourth-highest grossing release on domestic soil.

Guardians has grossed $313.7 million in North America to date, compared to Iron Man 2’s $312.4 million, and will go on to surpass the original Iron Man later this week, with the 2008 McU-launcher sitting on $318.4 million. Internationally, Guardians is on $632.3 million, and currently trails Thor: The Dark World ($644.8 million), Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($714.1 million), Iron Man 3 ($1.215 billion) and The Avengers ($1.518 billion).

Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, »

Box Office: ‘Maze Runner’ Sprints Past Liam Neeson With $32.5 Million

21 September 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Maze Runner” showed that sometimes the weekend box office is a marathon, not a sprint.

Twentieth Century Fox’s adaptation of James Dashner’s post-apocalyptic novel took awhile to build up steam, but found its core audience by the weekend’s midpoint. It debuted to $32.5 million from 3,604 locations, in line with projections. That’s good news for the studio, which hopes to turn the story of a group of teenagers battling nasty creatures in a dangerous labyrinth into a franchise.

“All of the elements came together in accomplishing something that no one ever tried by launching a young adult film like this in September,” said Chris Aronson, Fox’s domestic distribution chief. “We like to stand out whenever we can and we selected this release date in order to be the first event film of the fall.”

'Maze Runner' Quick Out of the Gate on Friday

20 September 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Maze Runner jumped out to the front of the pack on Friday with $11.25 million. Otherwise, business was relatively quiet: A Walk Among the Tombstones and This is Where I Leave You fell a bit short, while No Good Deed and Dolphin Tale 2 fell hard going in to their second weekends.Playing at 3,604 theaters, The Maze Runner debuted to more than twice as much as recent young-adult misses like The Giver ($4.75 million) and The Host ($5.3 million). Still, it only opened to around half as much as March's Divergent ($22.8 million), which puts it squarely in the middle of the young-adult range.A closer comparison is last November's Ender's Game, which opened to $9.8 million on its way to a $27 million weekend. If The Maze Runner follows Ender's pattern, it will finish the weekend with just over $30 million (a very good result).Opening at 2,712 theaters, A Walk Among the Tombstones took second place with $4.7 million. »

Finally: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' first $300 million movie of 2014

14 September 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It took an eyebrow raising nine months, but Hollywood finally has its first $300 million grosser of 2014.  Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy" crossed the magic mark on Saturday and ended the weekend with an estimated $305.9 million. The James Gunn action adventure had already surpassed another Marvel flick, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," to become the no. 1 movie of the year (so far) on August 28. Budgeted at a reported $170 million, "Guardians" has been a huge success for Marvel and Disney pulling in over $611 million worldwide.  It now ranks as the fifth highest grossing Marvel Studios movie ever after "The Avengers" and all three "Iron Man" films.  If Disney can hold onto theaters it has an excellent chance at surpassing "Iron Man 2's" $312.4 million for no. 4. Earning raves from Iron Man himself, Robert Downey, Jr., and even Al Pacino, "Guardians'" success has been an anomaly in what has been a »

Box Office: 'No Good Deed' passes 'Dolphin Tale 2' for no. 1

14 September 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On a weekend where "Guardians of the Galaxy" became the first movie to pass $300 million domestically in 2014, Hollywood saw some signs of life over a traditionally weak September box office frame.   Screen Gems' thriller "No Good Deed" tapped into a African-American audience looking for something different and pulled in a superb $24.5 million for no. 1.  That being said, the Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson thriller earned negative reviews from critics and received an Ok B+ Cinemascore (A is actually average), but with a reported budget of $13.2 million its well on its way to profitability.  It's also a nice bounce back for Screen Gems who misfired on the horror thriller "Deliver Us From Evil" in July. The second slot went to "Dolphin Tale 2" which disappointed with just $16.5 million. Pre-release tracking had the sequel to the 2011 hit earning more than the $19.1 million the original found.  The Warner Bros. and Alcon »

Should Marvel Studios start pairing heroes for team-up movies?

12 September 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on why Marvel Studios should start pairing heroes for team-up movies…

With Marvel aiming to introduce more and more characters to the Cinematic Universe, I think it is worth them doing duo movies with two heroes teaming up as the leads. There are characters who we want to get to see more of, but in no way could carry their own movie. This is not due to the fact that the characters are bad in any way, but in my opinion how some characters have been portrayed to date has hindered the chances of them being leads in their own movies.

Personally, I feel that some characters are unsuitable for their own movie. For example lots of people are calling for a Black Widow movie but I think it is too late for her to carry a film. She has only ever been a supporting character. She was »

16 different ways that films make money

12 September 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Box office is one way a film makes its cash: but what are the others?

I know you’ll have noticed this by now, but it’s definitely called show business for a reason. It’s not show show art, show entertainment or even show exhibitionist impulse. Unless movies make money, the money to make movies would dry up pretty quickly. But where does this money come from?

Actually, that’s an easy one. It comes, almost entirely, from you and me and people like us. The real question should be how does this money get from our back pockets and into the coffers of the big movie studios.

Some of the pathways are incredibly obvious, some perhaps a little less so. Let’s take a look at 16 of the ways that movies make money.

Andrew Garfield Attributes The Amazing Spider-Man 2′s Faults To Studio Interference

11 September 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looking back in hindsight, it’s fair to say that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn’t the commercial or indeed critical hit that many had anticipated. Deemed a mish-mash that was too concerned of establishing threads for future films in the series — much like Iron Man 2, actually — Marc Webb’s sequel failed to emulate the success of the other Spider-man 2 when it arrived in theaters earlier this year.

So, what went wrong? Well, although many attributed its faults to an overwhelming amount of material — a stash that caused the running time to balloon past two hours and twenty minutes — the missing factor could be attributed to story elements that remained on the cutting room floor. That’s according to Peter Parker himself, Andrew Garfield, who spoke to The Daily Beast and reflected back on his latest outing in the spandex suit.
