Warner Bros. Pictures’ Next Godzilla Film And Tag Movie Begin Production

22 June 2017 5:08 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Following the global success of 2014’s “Godzilla” and this year’s “Kong: Skull Island,” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.

The film, which began principal photography on June 19, is being directed by Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”), and stars Oscar nominees Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Conjuring” films), and Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”) and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), both reprising their “Godzilla” roles; Kyle Chandler (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Manchester by the Sea”); Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (“Get Out”); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”); Charles Dance (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (“Straight Outta Compton”); Aisha Hinds (“Star Trek Into Darkness”); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (“Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).

The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

Dougherty directs from a script he wrote with Zach Shields. The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Barry H. Waldman, Zach Shields, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.

Behind the scenes, Dougherty’s creative team includes director of photography Lawrence Sher, whose past credits include “War Dogs” and “Godzilla,” for which he handled additional photography; production designer Scott Chambliss (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Star Trek Into Darkness”); editor Roger Barton (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the “Transformers” films); costume designer Louise Migenbach (the “X-Men” and “Hangover” films); and Oscar-winning VFX supervisor Guillaume Rocheron (“Godzilla,” “Ghost in the Shell,” and part of the Oscar-winning team behind “Life of Pi ”).

Filming is taking place mainly in Atlanta, Georgia. A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the film is currently scheduled for release in March 2019, and will be distributed in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd.

Meanwhile, Tag! You’re It!

Production begins this week on location in Atlanta for the new comedy “Tag,” directed by Jeff Tomsic (Comedy Central’s “Broad City”) for New Line Cinema. The film’s starring ensemble cast is led by Ed Helms (The “Hangover” movies, “We’re the Millers”), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”), and Hannibal Buress (“Neighbors”), with Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker, “The Town”).

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry “You’re It!” This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready. Based on a true story, “Tag” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.

The film also stars Annabelle Wallis (“The Mummy”), Rashida Jones (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Isla Fisher (“Now You See Me”) and Leslie Bibb (“Iron Man 2”).

Tomsic directs from a screenplay written by Mark Steilen (TV’s “Mozart in the Jungle”) and Rob McKittrick (“Waiting”), based on the Wall Street Journal article entitled “It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being It.” The film is produced by Todd Garner, Mark Steilen and Sean Robins, with Hans Ritter serving as executive producer. The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Larry Blanford, editor Josh Crockett, production designer David Sandefur, and costume designer Denise Wingate.

Tag” is set for a June 29, 2018, release.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Kevin Feige Won’t Rule Out R-Rated Films In The Future

14 June 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has pretty much been on fire ever since it was first introduced with Iron Man back in 2008. Sure, there may have been a few duds along the way (Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 2), but on the whole, the universe has remained strong as time has gone on. However, as Marvel Studios adds more and more films to its already-long list, one has to wonder for how much longer it can go. At one point will these Marvel movies grow stale to most viewers, and are they changing them quickly enough?

With this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok, as well as next year’s Black Panther, it certainly seems like they’re ready to shift the style of storytelling into something a bit less bland, but how far are they willing to change things? For instance, are they ever »

Film and TV Production Rises in Monaco

The principality of Monaco has long been luring international film and TV productions with its landmark Monte Carlo Casino — of which James Bond is a big fan — its prestigious Grand Prix Formula One race, yacht-lined harbor and luxury high rises under the Maritime Alps.

“It’s a jewel in the Mediterranean” is how Monaco-based line producer John Bernard describes the micro-state famed as a tax haven for high net-worth individuals. TV executives from around the world will experience Monaco first-hand during the Monte Carlo TV Festival June 16-20.

“It’s emblematic, and it’s iconic,” adds Bernard, who is the founder of Monaco-based Jake Prods., which in 2009 made some of the key “Iron Man 2” scenes involving the Grand Prix possible. More recently, Bernard and his partner, producer Xavier Wakefield, have been instrumental to Sky Atlantic’s high-end TV series “Riviera” shooting its entire first season in the South of »

The Mummy Review: Not A Bad Way To Start A Dark Universe

9 June 2017 3:13 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Mummy seemed like a cash grab from the moment it was announced. Universal has been trying to launch a universe of their own, featuring classic movie monsters associated with the studio, including Frankenstein, the Wolfman, and the Invisible Man, for years. The Mummy is essentially the studio going "all in" to jump start what is now called Dark Universe. Casting a star as large as Tom Cruise initially read as an attempt to make up for shortcomings in other areas. When you don't have much else, attach the biggest movie star in the world, and your film will sell (maybe)! Additionally, though the first movie came out in 1999, the Brendan Fraser lead Mummy franchise is still fresh enough in the public's mind that starting a new universe with The Mummy seemed like a strange choice. So, is The Mummy just another ill-advised attempt to launch a universe, cashing in »

Black Panther Ep Says Marvel Is “Looking For The Next Best Story” For Phase 4

9 June 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If anything, two of the things Marvel Studios have long excelled at have been plotting out their film slate far in advance and introducing a wide array of characters to moviegoers, effectively making their pantheon of superheroes household names – even those who were previously B-listers. Granted, everyone knows the names of Captain America and the Hulk, but the average man on the street probably would’ve thought you were referring to a certain Black Sabbath song if you said the words “Iron Man” before 2008.

Since then, the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange have proven to be surprise hits, with Black Panther starting to build a considerable amount of hype now as well ahead of its release next year. While we wait for the film’s first teaser trailer heralding T’Challa’s solo debut on the silver screen to arrive, we now have a few nuggets »

Yesterday, Robert Downey Jr. took to Facebook Live to announce a special giveaway through Omaze, where a few lucky fans will win a trip to both the Spider-Man: Homecoming premiere and also to the Avengers: Infinity War set. During the 22-minute live video, the star responded to several fans who stopped by. He revealed that advanced audiences are responding quite positively to Spider-Man: Homecoming during early screenings. Here's what he had to say during the live video session.

"This Homecoming thing turned out very well. People have been starting early screenings of Spider-Man: Homecoming, and they say it's absolutely a 10 out of 10. I certainly enjoyed participating in it, and I think this will be one of the big summer hits. Anyway, these La premieres are usually pretty fun."

''Women should not be afraid to talk about sex'', Scarlett Johansson

5 June 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | Behindwoods | See recent Behindwoods news »

Renowned Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson is known for acting in films like The Prestige, Iron Man 2 and the Avengers. She has made a bold statement. She is apparently dismayed by the way women are portrayed when they talk about their intimate moments.

"When women talk about enjoying sex, it's almost forbidden. Just having a healthy sexual attitude, you are labeled as loose, wild, a slut. You have no morals, and you're seen as some kind of sexual deviant or someone who can't be in a monogamous relationship. The minute you talk about enjoying yourself, being curious, that is still »

10 Female Superheroes Who Deserve Their Own Movie After ‘Wonder Woman’ (Photos)

Wonder Woman” is the first big budget, female-fronted superhero film since 2005 and the first of the current era of comic-book blockbusters, but it hopefully won’t be the last. As the film directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot shapes up to be a likely big hit for Warner bros, here are some other female superheroes that should get their own stand-alone films. 1. Black Widow Fan favorite Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) has been a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2010’s “Iron Man 2,” but it’s about time the assassin-turned-Avenger headlines her own solo film. 2.

Aquaman Will Indeed Take Place After Justice League

29 May 2017 10:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Something we’ve all come to take for granted when it comes to shared superhero universes on film is their chronology, basically assuming that they’re unfolding in a linear fashion. A prime example of an exception to the rule would be Iron Man 2 actually taking place before the events depicted in The Incredible Hulk – despite it being released two years later. Or, on the DC side of things, Wonder Woman taking place a century prior to Justice League.

That said, we’ve all assumed that Aquaman would chronologically follow Justice League seeing as how their theatrical releases are separated by a thirteen month period. Well, thanks to a recent chat that Cinema Blend had with producer Charles Roven, we can now confirm that to be true, in addition to some cross-pollination:

“Aquaman will make reference [to Justice League]. There will be some reference of something that preceded Aquaman that will be in Aquaman. »

Silver screen slots

25 May 2017 12:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

In an ever-increasing desire to create the most exciting and immersive experiences possible slots designers are always on the lookout for new themes and concepts for their machines. In doing this they often take the example of video games developers as a starting point and this, logically, has led on to theming many of their slots around hit movies.

These are specifically designed to appeal to fans of the film in particular or the genre in general and often the film makers regard them as an additional piece of merchandise for the franchise.

So if you’re a movie fan here are some of the very best about and, more importantly, some handy tips about how to maximise your winnings.

One of the key aspects of success on the slots is knowing when to switch machine and the common wisdom is that when you’re on a run without many wins, »

Deadpool 2 Casts Its First Villain

24 May 2017 1:31 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

One of the major questions going into Deadpool 2 is: how do you go big while staying small? The tremendous success of the first film was undoubtedly the filmmaker's ability to do more with less. Deadpool had a tight $60 million budget, which is increasing in the sequel, and a small cast of B-list and C-level X-Men characters, which is also expanding. Sequel sprawl is a real thing in superhero films; unrealistic expectations and universe building can be a anchor on any production -- just ask Jon Favreau (Iron Man 2) or Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron).

Another key decision that will incur extended scrutiny: who is the villain? Let's be honest, does anyone remember much about Ajax (Ed Skrein)? As super-villains go, he's right up there with other forgettable Marvel baddies Ronan and Malekith. However, the soul of the first film was Deadpool's (Ryan Reynolds) relationship with Vanessa »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2: James Gunn On Why Ego Told Peter [Spoiler]

16 May 2017 | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had both positives a negatives. On the plus side, its a Guardians movie, and on the negative side it reused old jokes and plots of the first film. But the pivotal point of the film was where Ego told Peter that he deliberately killed his mother, by implanting the brain tumor (and of course squashing his beloved Walkman). The director, James Gunn was asked about about this by a fan on Facebook today. Why would Ego tell Peter this if he was trying to convince him to join him? Gunn had quite a lengthy, and Bs, response.

"Ego is a very complicated character. I think that Ego, and really the whole movie, is about ego. This is true. It is about Ego taking over... He told [Peter Quill] because on some level he wants »

Iron Man: is his time up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

16 May 2017 3:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard May 22, 2017

As rumours persist that Iron Man could bow out in Marvel’s upcoming Avengers films, we take a look at his arc in the McU.

This article contains spoilers for the Iron Man and Avengers films, as well as Captain America: Civil War and Guardians Of The Galaxy 2.

If Marvel want Robert Downey Jr to return to the McU after Avengers 4, they’ll have some serious negotiating to do. The man’s contract will be up at that point, and he’ll be free to move on to other things, which also leaves the studio in a position to write the character off.

"I can't imagine how they could but that doesn’t mean that they can't,” original Iron Man director Jon Favreau admitted to IGN last year. “I just can't wrap my head around that one. To me he's the one element that has unified all of it, »

King Arthur Franchise Is Dead

16 May 2017 12:46 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Variety is reporting that the King Arthur franchise, starting with the recently released King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, has met it's demise, not by marauding countrymen in the hills of Britain but by indifferent audiences. Raking in only $14 million dollars domestically and $29 million dollars internationally, with a budget of $175 million dollars, not taking into account marketing costs, you have yourselves a bomb of colossal proportions.

Whether the film is good or not to me is irrelevant. There are plenty of movies that fail miserably at the box office only to find a life after death in the home video market. If the audiences that saw this in theaters really enjoys what they saw, word of mouth can help this movie find the audience it didn't find in it's initial run. 

The problem I have with this movie is the fact that it was preparing itself for a full fledged »

The Mummy: Get A Glimpse Of Doctor Jekyll’s Transformation In New Featurette

15 May 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Shared universes are the way of the present. Between DC, Marvel, and the MonsterVerse, movies set in much larger universes have become a large portion of our film diet. While this has done well to introduce long form world-building to the big screen in an unprecedented manner, it doesn’t come without its pitfalls. As seen in movies like Iron Man 2 and Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s possible to have a film that focuses to much on laying the foundation, and not enough on just being a good movie.

With a new shared Universal Monsters universe on the way, it’s difficult not to look at the first film on their slate, The Mummy, with a skeptical eye. Will this movie be a great movie in and of itself, or will it end up focusing far too much on laying the foundations for future monster films? In the past, »

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 climbs to $630 million worldwide

14 May 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After passing the half billion mark during the week, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has now pushed its worldwide haul to $630.6 million, having pulled in a global weekend of $117 million.

Domestically, Guardians topped the box office this weekend with $63 million, easily fending off competition from Warner Bros. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which tanked hard with just $14.3 million from a $175 million production budget.

The Guardians sequel has now overtaken Ant-Man ($519.3 million), Iron Man ($585.2 million) and Iron Man 2 ($623.9 million) to become the ninth biggest entry in the McU behind Thor: The Dark World ($644.6 million).

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Holds at #1 While 'King Arthur' Falls on His Sword

14 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It ended up a lighter weekend than expected, mostly due to the struggles of the weekend's two new wide releases as both King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Snatched fell below Mojo's forecast. In the case of King Arthur it opened well below our estimation as the $175 million budgeted feature couldn't even crack $15 million over the three-day. Meanwhile, at #1 it was Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which is already flirting with $250 million domestically after ten days in release and has now topped $630 million worldwide. For the second weekend in a row it's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the top of the weekend box office as it delivered an estimated $63 million for a domestic cume over $246 million. While this falls below our $69.9 million forecast, the 57% drop is an improvement on the average for first sequels in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and better than the second weekend holds for Avengers: Age of Ultron, »

As 'Guardians 2' Repeats at #1 'King Arthur' & 'Snatched' Will Duel Over Mother's Day Weekend

11 May 2017 2:03 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The 2017 summer movie season kicked off last weekend with the strong opening for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which enters its sophomore session this weekend and will once again find itself atop the box office as the week's new wide releases*King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Snatched*aren't looking to offer much competition. Question is, with the Guardians sequel outperforming the opening weekend of the original by more than 55% (the best opening performance for a first sequel among all Marvel Cinematic Universe films), will the second weekend for the galactic superheroes also outperform the norm? In our showdown featuring Marvel First Sequels you can see the average second weekend drop for the four other films on the list is 57.4%, an average that would have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 delivering over $62 million this weekend. The best hold among those comparisons belonged to Captain America: Winter »
