The 20th Century Fox release unspooled across 3,967 U.S. theaters and was fueled by a glowing reviews, with many critics calling it the summer’s best popcorn film.
“It’s one of those rare times when critics and audiences agree and the confluence created a perfect storm for a phenomenal opening,” said Chris Aronson, president of domestic distribution at 20th Century Fox. “A lot of the movies over the last couple of weeks have been received on the tepid side, shall we say, so the market was ripe for a high quality, visually-stunning film.”
Overseas, the film brought in $31.1 million from 26 markets, most of them smaller territories with the exception of Australia and South Korea.
Its U.S. debut exceeds the $60 million bow »

It looks as if William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption, Iron Man 3) has joined the second episode of CW's The Flash, as wealthy buisnessman Simon Stagg. Back in comics history, Simon ties into Rex Mason, who becomes the shapeshifter Metamorpho. We already have Katana cast into season 3 of Arrow, so could we possibly get comics team The Outsiders? It's a stretch, but it's possible! Comment below and give us your thoughts on the matter!

Are Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow back together as a couple? A report claims the estranged couple have reunited and are ''operating like a couple'' again. The 'Iron Man 3' star and the Coldplay rocker - who announced they were separating after 10 years of marriage - have further fuelled speculation they are getting back together after they were seen dining together with their children Apple, 10, and Moses, eight, numerous times in the Hamptons this week. A source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: ''They were operating like a couple, and with the kids looked like a happy family.'' On Monday, the family enjoyed a meal at Bay Kitchen Bar in the resort town, and the following day 37-year-old Chris picked up skateboards from sports store Gubbins before joining Gwyneth, 41, and their children at Fierro's Pizza. It was recently claimed the former couple - who »

After striking it big again as a director of last summer’s Iron Man 3, Black has re-partnered with Silver and Warner Bros. for a project he co-wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi titled The Nice Guys. And he’s landed some pretty nice guys to play the two L.A. detectives investigating the mysterious suicide of a 1970s porn star: Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe.
In June, the Wrap initially reported that the long-in-development project was falling into place, »

A film adaptation of the popular manga series Death Note has been brewing for some time now, and last we heard about the project, Iron Man 3 helmer Shane Black was working with his The Nice Guys co-writer Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry on a new iteration of the script. The movie is set up at Warner Bros., which has a strong relationship with Black thanks to the Lethal Weapon franchise and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, so his involvement seemed like a done deal. However, now we’re hearing that Black might no longer be involved with Death Note, and his replacement is none other than Milk director Gus Vant Sant.
Death Note, an English-language adaptation of the manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, follows a high school student who finds a mysterious notebook that allows him to instantly kill any person by writing their name within its pages. »

Star Wars Rebels: We got our first look at the Inquisitor, the primary Star Wars Rebels villain, last year, and now Agent Kallus, his "right-hand man," has finally been revealed. David Oyelowo (Lincoln) will voice the character on the series, which debuts this fall on the Disney Channel and then will air regularly on the Disney Xd channel. [Los Angeles Times] Nice Guys: Confirming a previous report, Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling will star in Nice Guys, to be directed by Shane Black (Iron Man 3). The project now has the backing of Warner Bros.; it revolves around the possible suicide of a porn star in 1970s Los Angeles that escalates into a full-fledged conspiracy. The lead characters are a private detective and a "muscle for hire" who investigate...

Warner Bros. has closed a deal to finance Iron Man 3 director Shane Black’s upcoming noir film The Nice Guys, in which Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are set to star. Black has a long-standing relationship with Warner Bros. thanks to the Lethal Weapon franchise, which he created for the studio back in the ’80s, and Black’s directorial debut Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, so word that the studio wants to work with him again doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
The Nice Guys also sounds extremely promising. Black will both direct and co-write the script with Anthony Bagarozzi, a hot ticket in Hollywood who is working on scripts for Doc Savage and Death Note at the moment, so Black’s fans can expect the period noir to feature the same whip-smart dialogue and dark humor that has become the filmmaker’s calling card over the years. »

It's been over three years since Iron Man 3 director Shane Black was attached to direct an adaptation of the popular Japanese manga Death Note. But that was before he knocked the Marvel sequel out of the park, and picked up a slew of new projects after the film became a huge success. Now it seems Warner Bros. is trying to line up a new filmmaker behind the camera as The Tracking Board has learned that Gus Van Sant is in talks to hop in the director's chair. This should be considered rumor for now, especially after the source's mishandling of the news about Tina Fey not doing a sequel to Hocus Pocus, and it does sound odd. Van Sant has never really taken on a project like this where he's adapting material with a loyal and large fanbase. Perhaps the projects closest in comparison would be his shot-for-shot remake »

Here’s a minor but pleasing update to a recent story. Shane Black (above, on the set of Iron Man 3) may have a Predator movie to work on for Fox, but he’s also been putting together a film based on a script called The Nice Guys, which he co-wrote a few years back. Russell Crowe and […]

Is Shane Black back yet? Can we successfully call it a Shane Black world? The writer-director returned from the wilderness with the billion-dollar Iron Man 3, seemingly attracting his own blank check. But that blank check took a little extra time to materialize, as Black re-arranged the puzzle pieces. Now, he's locked and loaded into his next movie, and The Nice Guys will be a return to the classic Black that re-ignited blockbuster cinema in the eighties and nineties. The Hollywood Reporter claims that the WB has jumped onto The Nice Guys and will produce and distribute the film, with Shane Black's choices of Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in the lead roles. The project is a noir, produced by Joel Silver (Lethal Weapon) where a private eye and hired muscle team up to investigate the murder of a porn star, only to find out that she has ties »
Warner Bros is negotiating to acquire Us rights to "The Nice Guys," which will star Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, and be directed by Shane Black (Iron Man 3). Black co-wrote the script with Anthony Bagarozzi several years ago, but the project has had trouble gaining momentum. But now that the two actors are on board and Warner Bros is backing the film, "The Nice Guys" has a great chance of becoming reality. The story is set in 1970s Los Angeles and follows Jackson Healy (muscle-for-hire, recovering alcoholic) and Holland March (private eye, practicing alcoholic), who are brought together by the suicide of a fading porn star. However, the dead girl's aunt is convinced she saw her niece alive and well after the highly publicized incident. March needs money, takes the case, and within days, it's blossomed into a far-reaching murder conspiracy, bizarrely rooted in the Us auto industry. »
Having directed 3 X-Men movies (his latest being X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Superman Returns, you would expect Bryan Singer to be moving away from the comic book world before heading back in for X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. However, Tracking Boards show that his company, Bat Hat Harry, have acquired the rights to The Age of Heroes by James Hudnall for a big screen adaptation.
The Age of Heroes was released in the 1990s. Here’s the synopsis:
When the gods were born, they remade the world in the image of their dreams. This was known as the Age of Gods. When man was created along with other races of beings, fantastic cities were raised, insane magics were forged and unimaginable wars were fought, as the gods battled for supremacy over all creation. This was known as the Age of Wonders. When the gods fled and man was left to make »

The pair have been confirmed for the Iron Man 3 director's upcoming project.
Black was previously reported to be pursuing Gosling and Crowe for the police drama.
Warner Bros has acquired the rights to the film, which is set in the 1970s and follows the adventures of a private eye and his hired muscle.
The pair are brought together by the mystery of the suicide of a fading porn star, whose aunt claims to have seen alive and well after her supposed death.
Black and co-writer Anthony Bagarozzi's project was original conceived as a television show, but never progressed beyond the pilot stage.
Before Shane Black (Iron Man 3) heads back to the jungle (figuratively speaking) to tackle the new Predator movie, he will be directing his 1970s inspired comedy-noir The Nice Guys. And it’s been confirmed this morning by The Hollywood Reporter that Ryan Gosling (Only God Forgives) and Russell Crowe (Noah) have joined to lead the cast.
The Nice Guys is set in Los Angeles in the 1970s and sees a fighter and a private detective team up to attempt to solve a murder, which would set it in a similar tone to Black’s own Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang. A Christmas setting is not confirmed.
As it stands, »

Well, it looks like Shane Black is going to be a busy man for the next year or two. He's already confirmed to be directing the new Predator movie, which he's helping to put the story together for. Yet before that, he's got what's being described as a '70s comedy noir' to put together.
Black is writing and directing The Nice Guys, a film about a fighter and a private detective who join forces in 1970s Los Angeles to solve a murder. The film is expected to be Black's next, and it's now been revealed that he's got the two leads for it. Not bad choices, either: Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are to star in the film.
Black's last film, Iron Man 3, sits as one of the ten biggest of all time. »
Looks like Hollywood has agreed that this whole charismatic-detective-duo-solving-brutal-crimes thing is a winning formula: Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe have signed on to star in Iron Man 3 director Shane Black's noir police drama The Nice Guys. The film follows a pair of detectives named Jackson Healy and Holland March (great detective names) in 1970s L.A. who end up uncovering a sprawling murder conspiracy when investigating the suicide of a porn star. In a related bit of good news: Ryan Gosling isn't quitting acting! Now can we go back to talking about how cute his baby is going to be? »

The period noir centers on a private detective and a beefcake who search for a missing porn star and uncover an underground ring of corruption.
