Simon Kinberg talks The Fantastic Four, X-Men: Apocalypse and Gambit

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you were hoping to get a first look at Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the Fantastic Four at Comic-Con this weekend, then I’m afraid you’re out of luck. The Josh Trank-directed reboot was absent from 20th Century Fox’s schedule for its Hall H presentation on Friday, and now writer / producer Simon Kinberg has stated categorically that Fox has no Fantastic Four surprise in store.

“I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from The Fantastic Four at this year’s Comic Con,” Kinberg tells Latino-Review. “We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don’t want to show anything until it’s ready and it’s not ready yet. We want the first stuff that we show from the film to really blow people away, and it will but we »

Exclusive: Tom Woodruff Jr. Talks Harbinger Down and Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs

13 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With technology rapidly advancing in the world of filmmaking to the point where almost every theatrical genre film or big-budget blockbuster heavily relies on the use of CGI, it’s nice to see guys like Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alec Gillis of Amalgamated Dynamics still so committed to the artistry and necessity of practical effects in moviemaking.

Both icons in the world of special effects, Woodruff Jr. and Gillis have collectively worked on a vast array of hugely successful  and influential films throughout their careers, including The Terminator, Aliens, Cocoon, Predator, The Monster Squad, Pumpkinhead, Demolition Man, Tremors, Alien 3, Starship Troopers, Hollow Man, Jumanji, Spider-Man, Avp: Alien vs. Predator, and X-Men: First Class.

One of the recent projects the duo were a part of was Universal’s 2011 premake of The Thing, in which they were asked to create stunning practical creature effects to be used throughout production. Unfortunately, for both Woodruff Jr. »

Last week it was announced that Roberto Orci (Star Trek) had signed on to executive produce the upcoming Power Rangers reboot, as well as developing the story with Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class), who will pen the screenplay. During an interview with IGN, Orci has spoken about working with Haim Saban on the latest big screen version of the long-running series, promising that “I won’t ruin your franchise”.

We read through the synopsis of everything they did and we are actually taking into account quite a bit of the canon in a real way. We’re not just a leave it behind reboot.

Roberto Orci on the 'Power Rangers' Reboot

23 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It was recently announce that there will be a new big screen adaptation of The Power Rangers coming in 2016. Roberto Orci (Star Trek Into Darkness) will be executive producing, with Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor) writing the script. 

IGN sat down with Orci and discussed what connections, if any, the new film will have with the old series. 

IGN: Presumably it's not tied to the 21-year of history of the show. Are you going to use the same characters from the original series?

Orci: One of the first things we did was learn and read... They have 600 pages of research that they have on their stuff. We read through the synopsis of everything they did and we are actually taking into account quite a bit of the canon in a real way. We're not just a leave it behind reboot. [Haim] Saban cares very much about that. This is something that he created. »

Power Rangers movie producer open to original cast cameos

22 July 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Original Power Rangers cast members could have cameos in the upcoming movie reboot.

Executive producer Roberto Orci told IGN that the Haim Saban group would decide whether or not original cast members would appear in the movie.

Asked if there was a possibility for original cast cameos, Orci replied: "Of course. That's something we want to rely on the Saban group to tell us.

"They have a lot of internal knowledge of their franchise and we're just learning now. We've seen it only as fans, but they actually know it inside and out, so I'd love to know what fans want to see."

Promising not to ruin the franchise, Orci said that the film would have a continuity within the Power Rangers world.

"It's got a continuity within the world," he continued. "I can't tell you what, but it does have a continuity.

Roberto Orci Promises He Won’t Ruin ‘Power Rangers’ Movie

21 July 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Nostalgia for pop culture of the past is at an all-time high right now, as all of our favorite films, TV series and cartoons of the ’80s and ’90s continue to be recreated for a new generation. Yet for every remake that does well according to critics and fans, there’s another one out there that ends up missing the mark.

This is the challenge facing the new Power Rangers reboot from executive producer Roberto Orci (Star Trek) and screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class), which hopes to “re-envision” and share the classic children’s series with a wider audience. In order to do so, however, the franchise of more than twenty years must be condensed into a ...

New "Power Rangers" Film Is Not A Reboot

21 July 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The upcoming reboot of the "Power Rangers" franchise at Lionsgate is picking up steam with last week's hiring of "X-Men: First Class" scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stenz, while "Star Trek" and "Transformers" scribe Roberto Orci has come onboard as executive producer.

Now, Orci has spoken about the project, which is still in very early days yet, and surprisingly reveals that it's Not a reboot but rather a refresh (ala "Doctor Who") as it will exist in continuity with the world of the TV series but serve as a good launching point for newcomers. He tells IGN:

"One of the first things we did was learn and read… [Saban] has 600 pages of research that they have on their stuff. We read through the synopsis of everything they did and we are actually taking into account quite a bit of the canon in a real way. We're not just a leave it behind reboot. »

Roberto Orci: "I Won't Ruin" Power Rangers & Open To Original Cast Cameos

21 July 2014 12:41 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Roberto Orci, who is one of the men responsible for Star Trek Into Darkness and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, promised Haim Saban he wouldn't ruin the Power Rangers franchise. Saban believed him and that is how he became one of the producers on the project. And that is just some of what Orci told IGN in a recent interview. For the most part Orci gave vague responses, especially when asked about the continuity. "It's got a continuity within the world," told IGN. "I can't tell you what, but it does have a continuity. As for a potential director? That'll have to wait. When X-Men: First Class' screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz do complete their script, that is when Orci and the rest of his team will search out the best director for Power Rangers. And Orci provided hope that there could be cameos for the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers »

5 Movies Due For a Remake

21 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

What keeps any story or idea relevant is continuous adaptation. The blanket statement that “remakes suck” discounts a lot of great remakes and ignores the fact that mankind has been retelling and remixing stories forever. A good example of reinvention is Batman, who will see his 4th cinematic incarnation and is popular worldwide and across all ages. Buck Rogers on the other hand hasn’t had a new movie since 1939 and grows more irrelevant with each passing year.

All five movies that I think are due for a remake are 15 years or older. Four of these are adaptations from other media. For each movie I break down their faults or misfortunes, the opportunity in the source material or potential in a remake, how a remake makes fiscal sense, its current and past remake status, and finally a bit of fanboy wishful thinking.
