John Wick Helmers To Adapt Bloodshot Comic For Sony’s New Cinematic Universe

21 April 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the power play between Marvel and DC Comics’ respective cinematic universes continues to vie for your attention, another competitor is about to enter the ring. Valiant Entertainment has struck a deal with Sony Pictures to create a new cinematic universe that’s set to be based on its own series of comic book titles, starting with Bloodshot in 2017 and ending with crossover title Harbinger Wars.

John Wick creative duo David Leitch and Chad Stahelski will direct Bloodshot from a script adapted by Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) and Eric Heisserer (2011’s The Thing). And if that wasn’t impressive enough, you can also include producers Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kick-Ass) and Neal Moritz (Fast & Furious franchise) in that veritable list of names.

Created by Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton, Bloodshot revolves around a soldier whose corpse is revived by a secret government agency and reprogrammed as a relentless killing machine. »

Suit Up for Kingsman: The Secret Service Blu-Ray in June

21 April 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Easily one of the best films of the year so far, Kingsman: The Secret Service, is coming to blu-ray in just a couple months and Fox has revealed all the special features you can expect upon its release.  Come inside for all the details!

When I first saw Kingsman in theaters, I called it "the first genuine must-see movie of the year" and my opinion on that hasn't changed in the least.  It's an incredible film that manages to hit all the right notes.  If you missed it in theaters (for shame), or simply can't wait to see it again, Fox has revealed the details on the upcoming blu-ray release on June 9th-or digitally on May 15th.  

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment invites you to join Kingsman: The Secret Service when it hits Digital HD™ May 15 and Blu-ray™ and DVD June 9. Matthew Vaughn, director of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

Matthew Vaughn to Direct Flash Gordon Remake

17 April 2015 4:31 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After directing such hits as "Kingsman: The Secret Service," "X-Men: First Class" and "Kick-Ass," director Matthew Vaughn is now negotiating to direct his next movie, a remake of "Flash Gordon." The character was created in 1934 by iconic artist Alex Raymond. Along with the lovely Dale Arden and mad scientist Hans Zasrkov, he ends up on the planet Mongo fighting its tyrannical ruler, Ming the Merciless. Vaughn's film will not be based on the 1980 movie, which is best known for its Queen soundtrack, inspiring George Lucas to make "Star Wars," and more recently, being constantly referenced in "Ted." Instead, the film will be based on the classic "Flash Gordon" comic strip. Back in 2009, Sam Worthington (Avatar) was attached to star in the movie, which was set to be directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies). »

Flash arghhhhh!? Is Matthew Vaughn rebooting Flash Gordon a good idea?

16 April 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Week in geek: The Kick-Ass and Kingsman director is rumoured to be revamping the classic 80s cheesefest. But can you replace Brian Blessed, Queen and Razzie-nommed Sam J Jones and still save every one of us?

Gordon’s Alive! And he’s coming back to the big screen in a new effort from Matthew Vaughn, the British director of Kick-Ass, Stardust and Kingsman: The Secret Service.

The news that Vaughn is in talks to direct a new take on Flash Gordon, the 1930s comic book hero who famously inspired Mike Hodges’s preposterously camp 1980 film, has been rather overshadowed by this week’s revelations about the forthcoming Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel movies. But with Kingsman likely to end up one of 2015’s biggest box-office hits, maybe we should be taking the idea of blasting off once again for planet Mongo a little more seriously.

Flash Gordon May Have Found The Perfect Director

15 April 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After news from a year ago pointed to a revival of the classic comic-strip-inspired property, it seems Twentieth Century Fox is indeed reviving Flash Gordon. Based on who they’re looking to put in the director’s chair, the film could be in solid hands that know the action/sci-fi genre well. It's being reported that Matthew Vaughn may be the man to be the savior of the savior of the universe. According to a scoop from The Hollywood Reporter, Vaugh is currently in negotiations to take the helm of the upcoming reboot of the venerable Flash Gordon. Having firmly established himself as the visionary behind X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, and the recent dark horse of a hit, Kingsman: The Secret Service, he could bring his directorial skills to the planet Mongo, a setting that combines magic and mysticism with off-the-wall futuristic technology.

Aah! Matthew Vaughn In Talks To Helm ‘Flash Gordon’

15 April 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You may remember that Fox Studios picked up Alex Raymond’s comic strip hero, Flash Gordon over a year ago. Well, now it looks like the project is gathering momentum as Matthew Vaughn is currently in negotiations to direct.

Vaughn seems like a great choice too, with Kick-ass, X-men: First Class and recent hit, Kingsman: The Secret Service under his superhero utility belt. The character Flash Gordon dates back to the ’30s, and spawned a wide range of media, including films, TV, new comic renditions, and of course that Queen song.

Star Trek 3 writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have penned the script, while John Davis and King Features are producing.

Matthew Vaughn is the frontrunner to direct a new Flash Gordon movie.

20th Century Fox is developing a big-screen revival of the science fiction comic strip, which has been adapted many times for the screen since the 1930s.

Vaughn is now in formal talks with the studio to bring a new version of Flash Gordon to life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The revival is being written by science fiction scribes John D Payne and Patrick McKay.

Vaughn is riding high off the success of his blockbuster spy movie Kingsman: The Secret Service, which has been tipped for a sequel from 20th Century Fox.

He has also previously directed the big screen hits X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass, and is producing the Fantastic Four reboot.

Flash Gordon's film history began with a series of Buster Crabbe serials in the 1930s, and much later spawned a 1980 revival starring Sam J Jones, »

Matthew Vaughn in talks to direct ‘Flash Gordon’

15 April 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Alex Raymond’s sci-fi comic strip Flash Gordon has been hugely influential on pop culture. We’re a big fan of the newer comic series ourselves. And though we’ve gotten a 1980 camp classic movie adaptation, we’re due for another blockbuster size version on the big screen.

Matthew Vaughn, director of Kingsman, Kick-Ass, and X-Men: First Class, is in talks to direct Flash Gordon for Twentieth Century Fox, THR is reporting. The script for the film was written by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, who worked on Star Trek 3.

Currently, Vaughn is producing the upcoming Fantastic Four movie and Eddie the Eagle starring Hugh Jackman, but he has yet to line up another directing project following Kingsman. Flash Gordon would be his sixth film.

'Kingsman' Helmer Staying at Fox to Direct 'Flash Gordon' Reboot

15 April 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Director Matthew Vaughn has been the starter for several franchises, being at the helm of X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass, but he's yet to stick around beyond a single film. There's a chance that this year's Kingsman: The Secret Service will actually bring Vaughn back for a hopeful sequel to the spy action adventure, but it's early days to guarantee that. And now THR reports 20th Century Fox is looking to Vaughn to relaunch a classic comic strip on the big screen as the director of Flash Gordon. Vuaghn is currently in talks with the studio to bring the sci-fi character created in the 1930s to the big screen again. Created by Alex Raymond, Flash Gordon is a handsome polo player and graduate of Yale University who finds himself and his friends Dale Arden and the half-mad Dr. Hans Zarkov traveling to the planet Mongo, believed to be the source »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Helmer Matthew Vaughn Circling Flash Gordon For Fox

15 April 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since the official word got out that a Flash Gordon reboot was indeed in the works over at 20th Century Fox, the studio has remained mum on the big-screen adaptation, with nary a rumor or casting snippet finding its way online. That radio silence has been interrupted today, however, after The Hollywood Reporter picked up that X-Men: Days of Future Past and Kingsman: The Secret Service helmer Matthew Vaughn has entered talks to direct the film.

Alex Raymond’s beloved character has been explored through a myriad of cultural products, but Fox’s adaptation is the first big-screen outing in quiet some time. Now, the artist himself is on board to produce the studio’s movie alongside George Nolfi, while script duties have been handed off to J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, whose most recent credits include the in-development Star Trek 3.

Matthew Vaughn being sought to direct the Flash Gordon reboot

There's been a lot of talk this past year about some sort of Flash Gordon film (thanks Ted?), and while the latest rumor suggested a possible sequel in the works, I have a feeling that might go out the window if Twentieth Century Fox gets their way. The newest Gordon news is that Fox is seeking out Kingsman and Kick-ass director Matthew Vaughn to breathe some life back into this license. While Flash Gordon is mostly known for the cheesy 80s film, it looks like Fox is hoping to harken back to »

Mark Millar's Jupiter's Legacy In Development

8 April 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Kingsman: The Secret Service becoming a huge hit at the box office, it’s perhaps not surprising that producers would be looking to turn more of Kick-Ass man Mark Millar’s work into films. Not that they needed much encouragement in the first place... Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who is already developing the writer’s Mph for the screen, has persuaded him to make a deal to add Jupiter’s Legacy to the list of potential films. Legacy, the Image Comics title co-created by Millar and artist Frank Quitely with colours and lettering from Peter Doherty, explores the generational conflict between a group of aging superheroes who gained their powers in the 1930s from a mysterious island and used them for the good of mankind, and their children, who have largely struggled with living up to the legacy of their parents. The kids have largely become vacuous celebri-types, better known »

"Thor: Ragnarok" Updates

8 April 2015 7:58 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek the origins of Marvel Comics' super-villain 'Ragnarok', appearing in Marvel Studios' next "Thor" solo movie "Thor: Ragnarok", that will lead into both "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" and "Captain America: Civil War":

'Ragnarok', created by Mark Millar of "Kick-Ass" fame,  is a supervillain debuting in Marvels "Civil War" #3 (July 2006) as a 'cyborg clone' of Thor.

"...when 'Thor' was missing in action, presumed dead, 'Tony Stark' took one of his hairs, which he had retained from the first meeting of the 'Avengers' and cloned the 'Asgardian' DNA with Stark technology. This resulted in the creation of a new, cyborg Thor. 

"Ragnarok has all the powers and knowledge of Thor including super-strength, extensive combat knowledge, stamina, high resistance to physical injury, immunity to Earthly diseases, superhuman agility and reflexes.

"Ragnarok's hammer, though not the enchanted 'Mjolnir', is constructed of a 'vibranium' and 'adamantium' alloy, able to absorb and discharge lightning, »

When actors make it big and they are winning awards, we tend to forget just how much hard work it took to get them where they are today.  Jennifer Lawrence is a household name, often hailed as one of the best actresses working right now but she, as with everybody else, has a history of movies that range from the good to those they want to forget.  Behind Closed Doors is one sucjh movie – a new release of a 2008 movie also known as The Poker House, which besides Lawrence, also stars Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick Ass, Carrie).  The question is does it hold up against their more recent work, or would they rather forget it?
