Singapore’s most successful acting export Chin Han is returning to the U.S., but taking a time out from his Hollywood trajectory to star in a Chinese indie movie.
Chin Han, who has Hollywood credits that include “The Dark Knight,” “2012” and Netflix’s “Marco Polo” TV series, has joined as the male lead in U.S.-set Chinese drama film “A Different Sun.” The picture is now shooting in upstate New York.

The script is based on the critically acclaimed short story of the same title by Liu Ying.
The picture is produced by Wild Invention Pictures and Monolith Pictures.

Chinese studio Bona Film Group has signed a deal to invest $235 million in a slate of Hollywood tentpole movies from 20th Century Fox.
Seelig, who was previously head of Dune Capital, has a longstanding relationship with 20th Century Fox, and has a slate funding deal with Fox. The new deal effectively entitles Bona to participate in Tsg’s ongoing slate financing arrangement.
The deal allows the Chinese firm to invest in six live-action tentpoles. The first of these is the Ridley Scott-directed hit “The Martian,” on which the Seelig Group is credited as a producer. Bona will own 20% of the equity and participate in global revenues in proportion.
“China is a critical market to our long-term economic success,” said Seelig.
“This is a done deal, the money has been paid over already, »

Want to know more about what happened between 1996's Independence Day and next year's Independence Day: Resurgence? You're in luck. A new comic will bridge the original movie and it's sequel. And it will help set up new characters while reestablishing old acquaintances. Best of all, this in-canon tale will delve into the very dark recesses of the sci-fi franchise.
Titan Comics is publishing the untitled Independence Day: Resurgence prequel comic book sometime next year. They describe it as a 'dark' prison drama that will lead directly into the story being told in the hugely anticipated sequel, which arrives twenty years after aliens first invaded, and subsequently devastated planet earth. The tone is described as 'rich' and 'psychological'. Editor Steve White had this to say about the impending comic book release.
"[It will be] a golden opportunity to segue nicely into next year's blockbuster sequel by taking the mythos of the original and »
Titan Comics has announced that it will release a new comic book series prequel to the upcoming sequel "Independence Day: Resurgence".
The currently untitled comic is described as a "rich psychological prison drama" set after the events of the 1996 original film.
Editor Steve White tells THR that the comic is: "a golden opportunity to segue nicely into next year's blockbuster sequel by taking the mythos of the original and maybe adding a little darkness to it
No release date for the comic has yet been set, though it's likely to take place before the film opens on June 24th next year. »

The stage has been set for 2016 to become one of the greatest years in the history of cinema. Never have so many unrelated franchise released so many films featuring so many iconic characters at any one time. That begs one very important questions: amid so many competitors, which film are audiences most excited to see?
Two major released will be coming from Fox next year: Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse. Deadpool’s marketing campaign has been nothing if not spot on thus far — completely capturing the essence of the character, and setting him apart from the competition. X-Men: Apocalypse seems primed to similarly capture the spirit of its source, dropping the franchise’s typically grounded aesthetic in favor of vibrant, comic book-esque visuals. Fox’s Marvel properties have only improved with each passing outing since 2011, so they seem to have found their rhythm with these characters.

The belated sequel to Independence Day, Independence Day: Resurgence, has wrapped production, and director Roland Emmerich is overseeing the edit and the lengthy post-production work. After all, there's no shortage of visual effects that need to be peppered in.
In the midst of this, he's preparing to release his new drama, Stonewall, a long-time passion project for Emmerich which is released in cinemas this autumn. He's been chatting to Collider about that movie, and in the midst of the conversation, the topic of Independence Day: Resurgence came up.
The new film is set 20 years after the last one, with humans using alien technology to try and defend the earth. But just how many of the aliens were wiped out in the first attack, that we saw in the original Independence Day?
"Well, it's only like one of the hives, »
However, the filmmaker's schedule means he's taken time out from the editing room in the last few days to do press for his gay rights historical drama "Stonewall". During those rounds, he spoke with Collider about the ID4 follow-up and discussed how the alien threat we'll see in the new film will differ from that in the first movie:
"Well, it [the first film's aliens] is only like one of the hives, like kind of moving around. [Laughs] What we did this time, we tried to expand the universe, too. It's not as simple as the last one because you cannot make it as simple as the last one.
Also it's a little bit about what happened to our world when you know that they are coming back. »

Over the summer, a live streaming press conference introduced everyone to the cast of Independence Day 2, officially titled Independence Day: Resurgence (or Idr for those who were a fan of the ID4 shorthand for the original 1996 blockbuster).

Upon doing the press rounds for his soon-to-be-released civil rights drama Stonewall, director Roland Emmerich has touched base on his return to the blockbuster scene with next summer’s Independence Day: Resurgence.
Having only wrapped initial production late last month, the long-gestating sequel is now incubating in post, as the VFX artists bring to life what is no doubt an effects-laden release. Primed to launch a full two decades after its predecessor, Resurgence will explore a scenario where the countries of the world have united against a common enemy, with the remnants of humanity existing in a post-war generation.
Referring to the events of the original as the War of ’96, Emmerich has hatched a plan that will see those survivors establish a radically different defense program. Armed with the recovered alien technology from the initial invasion, the inhabitants of Earth believe they’re well equipped to deal with any galactic »

Production has wrapped on 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel Independence Day: Resurgence, which is set for release on June 24, 2016, almost exactly 20 years after the original Independence Day hit theaters in 1996. While fans wait for the first full trailer to debut, director Roland Emmerich revealed new details in an interview with Collider. The official synopsis released this summer stated that humanity always knew the aliens would come back, and the director says that the aliens who were destroyed in the original movie were just one of the "hives."
"Well, it's only like one of the hives, like kind of moving around. [Laughs] What we did this time, we tried to expand the universe, too. It's not as simple as the last one because you cannot make it as simple as the last one. Also it's a little bit about what happened to our world when you know that they are coming back. »
Roland Emmerich recently announced the end of filming on his long-planned Independence Day 2, subtitled Resurgence. The director had been shooting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and he commemorating the wrap with a photo of a double rainbow. So, when will fans get to see the first footage of this highly anticipated film? I spoke to the director for his latest film, Stonewall, about the homeless Lgbt youth of NYC during the historic Stonewall Riots. Towards the end of our conversation (of which you'll hear more in the coming days), I asked whether or not we would get an Independence Day 2 trailer by the end of the year. While the first trailer was initially rumored to drop on Independence Day, it did not, and he replied: Yes. It will probably be happening around the Christmas season. Independence Day: Resurgence picks up years after the first film, which starred Will Smith and Jeff »
Early last month, it was widely reported that Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy had called it quits. They made the break public, releasing a statement to the press just as their new show The Muppets is set to debut this fall. The ABC reality series, which is described as a fresh take on The Office, will show the lives of these various animals and creatures. And as expected, we'll be getting a bird's-eye view into the dating woes and romantic relationships of everyone's favorite Pig and Frog. ABC has leaked early photos of Kermy's new fling. And to be honest, she's a real pig.
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have been together for over four decades. Though their split was amicable (according to the record), it didn't take long for the green man to start hitting the field. And boy, did he hit it hard. Kermit the Frog »
