New Images from J.A. Bayona’s A Monster Calls

12 August 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

New images from EW offer a closer look at the benevolent creature (voiced by Liam Neeson) who befriends a troubled boy (Lewis MacDougall) in A Monster Calls.

Synopsis: “A visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth. Toby Kebbell plays Conor’s father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.”

Directed by J.A. Bayona from a screenplay by Patrick Ness (based on his novel of the same name), A Monster Calls stars Lewis MacDougall, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Liam Neeson, and Sigourney Weaver. The film hits theaters on October 21st, 2016.

Brad Pitt looking to David Fincher to direct World War Z sequel

10 August 2016 5:04 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Despite its troubled production and mixed reviews, Brad Pitt's World War Z still managed to make a bundle at the box-office, meaning that a sequel was an inevitability. Paramount announced the sequel not too long after the release of the first and Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) was later attached to direct, although he jumped ship earlier this year due to other commitments leaving...

David Fincher Looking To Direct World War Z Sequel?

10 August 2016 4:56 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While World War Z may not have been the classic zombie flick fans of the book were hoping for, the film still managed to be a thrilling tale that moved at breakneck speed. Despite all the reshoots and the tampering from the studio, World War Z turned out to be one heck of a Frankenstein's monster. What's more, the movie also made back over half a billion dollars in box office gross, which isn't bad when you look at its troubled production.

But its production woes were easily forgotten, and after the box office success, a sequel was inevitable. And yet, here we are in 2016, with no sequel yet in hand. The Impossible's J.A. Bayona was originally set to helm the sequel, but has since moved on to Jurassic World 2 -- probably a good move on his part, career-wise. This left World War Z 2 without a father. But, »

David Fincher in Early Talks to Direct World War Z Sequel?

10 August 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The search for a new director for the sequel to 2013’s World War Z has taken an intriguing turn, as Variety reports that David Fincher (Gone Girl, 2011’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) is in early talks to helm the follow-up film.

According to Variety, Fincher has been having discussions with Brad Pitt, Paramount Pictures, and Skydance about potentially directing World War Z 2. No deal is finalized at this point, but things seem to have taken a promising turn, as Variety states that “negotiations are much further down the road” than they were when talks began a couple of weeks ago, and that a deal could be on the table.

If Fincher does take the helm of the sequel, it would be his fourth movie with Pitt, as the two have already worked together on Se7en, Fight Club, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Tiff Lineup: 5 Reasons to Get Excited About the 2016 Program

26 July 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the middle of summer, when moviegoing options are slim, it’s hard to visualize the sheer scope of films that will screen this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival. No single film commands all the buzz, nor can one lineup, and so the first big announcement — featuring the Galas and Special Presentations — can only begin to provide some insight into the titles worthy of anticipation.

Still, there’s a lot to dig through: Oscar hopefuls looking to gain momentum (“The Birth of a Nation,”  “Loving” and more detailed here); big-budget studio efforts hoping to earn some upscale cred (Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi “Arrival”); veteran filmmakers still pursuing the kind of topics that put them on the map (Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” Mira Nair’s “Queen of Katwe”).

Beyond these obvious standouts, however, several titles from these programs hold a lot of potential for »

Jurassic World Sequel Expected To Kick Off Production Early 2017

22 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There's been a ton of rumors floating around regarding Universal's next installment in their long-running and hugely successful Jurassic Park franchise, but outside of knowing the release date, we really don't know all that much about which direction they plan on taking the upcoming Jurassic World sequel. What we do know, however, is that both of the previous film's stars - Chris Pratt & Bryce Dallas Howard - will be reprising their roles as Owen & Claire, respectively, and that the studio has signed Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) to direct. Yesterday, Jurassic Outpost obtained confirmation that production on the highly anticipated sequel will begin on February 27, 2017 in Hawaii. They're uncertain whether or not this will be when filming starts, although considering the June 2018 release date, it's probably a safe bet that it is. In addition to Hawaii, the film is also expected to spend a good majority of its shoot at Pinewood Studios in London. »

‘Jurassic World 2’ to shoot in February 2017; Most of it in London

21 July 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There are a couple of website reporting that the sequel to last year’s Jurassic World is all set to start shooting in February 2017, and apart from a couple of weeks lensing in Hawaii, most of the sequel will end up being shot in London, England.

The word on the street (we’re looking at you Jurassic Outpost and you Reel News Hawaii), that some of the production will be based at Pinewood Studios, which is actually just outside of the capital, but other scenes could be shot elsewhere. The man at the helm this time around is J.A. Bayona, the guy responsible for The Impossible and the upcoming A Monster Calls.

Colin Trevorrow, who directed the last movie, will return to co-write the screenplay for this one. Obviously the plot is massively under wraps, but the filmmaker previously had this to say.

Speaking to Wired Magazine Trevorrow said “[It will not be] just »

Jurassic World 2 will begin filming in Hawaii early next year

21 July 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Details regarding the start of production on Jurassic World 2, the sequel to 2015’s monster hit Jurassic World, have recently been revealed over at Jurassic Outpost (in conjunction with Reel News Hawaii), a Jurassic Park fansite. The site claims that the movie will begin production in Hawaii on February 27th, 2017 and continue filming in London, most likely at Pinewood Studios.

Each Jurassic Park series entry has shot at least a few scenes in Hawaii, so it should come as no surprise that this is where the cast and crew are headed for the fifth film. Additionally, the working title of Ancient Futures will be used to conceal the project’s identity during its shoot.

Fans champing at the bit for Jurassic World 2, to hit theaters will have to do a bit of waiting, as the film isn’t due out until June 8th, 2018 in the UK and June 22nd, 2018 in the States. »

Jurassic World 2 Begins Shooting in Early 2017

21 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one month after Universal's blockbuster Jurassic World hit theaters, the studio went ahead and announced a sequel, setting a June 22, 2018 release date for Jurassic World 2. Back in April, it was confirmed that J.A. Bayona (The Impossible, A Monster Calls) will replace Colin Trevorrow, but we haven't heard anything further about the sequel since then. Today we have a new report which claims that production is now slated to start in early 2017 in Hawaii.

A fan site called Jurassic Outpost broke the news that production will begin on February 27, 2017 in Hawaii, but it isn't clear if that will be the start of pre-production or principal photography itself. Jurassic World and the earlier Jurassic Park movies used Hawaii to shoot Isla Nublar scenes, but back in August, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow revealed that the story will involve "weaponized dinosaurs" while the story will be taken off the island.

13 July 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every trailer so far for J.A.
