Now You See Me 2’s Official Title Revealed

4 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the past few months, we’ve heard some pretty awful proposed titles for Now You See Me 2, Summit’s announced sequel to the 2013 magician caper, including (believe it or not) Now You See Me: Now You Don’t. Luckily, the filmmakers chose to go with a different tactic when subtitling the follow-up, as Mark Ruffalo has just revealed that the full title is Now You See Me: The Second Act

Hardly the catchiest title, I know, but it does remind us that the sequel will continue to set up the larger universe merely teased in the first installment. In The Second Act, three of the Four Horsemen (Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Jesse EisenbergIsla Fisher opted not to return) are drawn out of hiding to face a new enemy, who enlists them for a dangerous heist. Agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) also returns to the franchise, »

Now You See Me 2 Title Revealed

7 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

2013’s Now You See Me was one of those quiet box office successes that kind of flew under the radar.  The magician-centric heist picture didn’t garner great reviews, but it opened to a solid $29.3 million and went on to gross $351.7 million worldwide.  With an international hit on its hands, Lionsgate/Summit unsurprisingly put the wheels in motion for a sequel.  G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu takes over from previous helmer Louis Leterrier this time around with the entire main cast returning plus Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, and Jay Chou (The Green Hornet).  And now that filming is set to get underway soon, star Mark Ruffalo has revealed the official Now You See Me 2 title: Now You See Me: The Second Act.  More after the jump. With pre-production on the sequel now underway, Ruffalo opted to break the news of the Now You See Me 2 »

10 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Now You See Me didn't get a lot of attention but certainly made enough at a box office to garner a sequel when it grossed over $350 million worldwide; there is an audience for this somewhere it seems.

Ed Solomon Added To Universal Monsters Brain Trust

17 November 2014 8:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s been a lot going on with Universal’s Classic Monsters lately, now that the studio has brought together a team of veteran producers and writers to spearhead a new chapter of Universal Monsters that will reintroduce iconic characters to modern audiences. Recently, we heard that Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley and Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski had been brought into the fold to pen entries in the new cinematic universe, and now we have another name to add to that growing lineup: Now You See Me and Men in Black screenwriter Ed Solomon.  

Hawley, Guzikowski and Solomon will form a sort of brain trust with producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, both well-respected scribes in their own right. All of them will work on one another’s movies and help out where needed to ensure that the new Universal Monsters installments feature the kind of serialized storytelling that the studio is looking for. »

When Universal's Classic Monsters Hit the Big Screen for the First Time

16 November 2014 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A new writing team is assembling at Universal to resurrect classic monsters and apparently create a credible universe to compete for years with the slates of Marvel and DC Comics films. Recently, Noah Hawley (TV's Fargo), Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) and Ed Solomon (Now You See Me) were added to work on this new cinematic universe, as The Hollywood Reporter confirmed on Nov. 12. So, perhaps in a few years time, moviegoers will see an Avengers-style film with Frankenstein, Wolf Man, Invisible Man and the Creature From the Black Lagoon clamoring around to join forces and wreak havoc. For now, with the

Hollywood Film Awards: 5 Things You Didn't See on TV

15 November 2014 9:23 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While you couldn't miss the bizarrely behaved Johnny Depp on stage last night during the first televised Hollywood Film Awards, there was a lot going on that the cameras weren't rolling on inside the Palladium. Here, we give you five things you didn't see on TV: 1. Early Bird: Kristen Stewart was one of the first to take her seat inside the theater. At one point she was all by her lonesome at her table before being joined by Wash Westmoreland, the co-writer and co-director of Stewart's new Oscar-buzzy indie Still Alice. 2. Now You See Me, Now You Don't: Most of the big stars didn't take their seats in the audience during the ceremony. Angelina Jolie, Robert Pattinson, Reese »

Is that Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias »

Here's What Universal Is Planning for Its Monster-Movie Reboots

13 November 2014 2:40 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you love monsters, and movies based on video games, you’re gonna want to read this. Universal is moving forward with plans to relaunch its classic monster-movie franchises of old – and now the studio has added three more writers to its stable. THR reports that Fargo TV series creator Noah Hawley, Prisoners screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski, and Now You See Me writer Ed Solomon will join Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan in bringing some of horror’s most iconic monsters back to the screen. Plans are for the writers to work together collaboratively, sort of like a television show’s writers room, with each providing input and ideas into the others’ scripts. Presumably, this is being done so all of the planned features will work together organically as...

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shooting scenes in IMAX

13 November 2014 11:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has moved from Detroit to Chicago to do a final month’s filming before post production. Last night the set of the film was getting ready to shoot the Wayne’s murder scene, which is an iconic moment from the Batman story. It has now been revealed that this scene was shot in IMAX.

Twitter user Mike Eisenberg, who is a Chicago local and runs a production company, was near the set last night and tweeted about it. He first said “Lots of people waiting in cold to watch scene film, but it looked like the IMAX cameras were not handling the cold well. Could be a while.”

He then confirmed that they were using IMAX cameras to shoot the iconic scene: “I can confirm with my own eyes that Batman v Superman is filming at least the Wayne murder scene with full IMAX film cameras. »

Here's Your 'Universal Monsters' Brain Trust

13 November 2014 8:29 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's been a fair amount of rumbling come out of Universal lately, with their ambitious plan to relaunch their classic monster franchises. We know that they want to emulate Marvel Studios by creating a massive, shared universe that's all interconnected, and then have the "phases" culminate in "Vs" and team-up films. But now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, we know that they're also going to borrow from the creative process of another very successful studio: Pixar.

THR is reporting that several writers have been hired to form a collective of talent that's meant to oversee all of the films. Yesterday, it was announced that Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) had been tapped to write The Wolfman. He joins Chris Morgan and Alex Kurtzman, who have all ready been hard at work creating the plans. Now there's word of two other new members of the team: Noah Hawley (The Fargo TV show) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, »

Uni Monsters Get "Fargo," "Prisoners" Scribes

12 November 2014 6:33 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Universal Pictures is continuing to lock down plans for an interconnected cinematic universe featuring its classic monsters, with a trio of scribes having been hired by the studio.

Off screen, the studio aims to create something akin to Pixar's "brain trust" with a handful of scribes all weighing in on and contributing to each other's movies. Each will offer help as needed as they work on separate films that will include serialized storytelling elements.

Previously announced for this group were Chris Morgan ("Fast Five," "47 Ronin") and Alex Kurtzman ("Star Trek," "Transformers") who are also producing. Joining them will be "Fargo" TV series creator Noah Hawley, screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski ("Prisoners," "Contraband"), and veteran screenwriter Ed Solomon ("Men in Black," "Now You See Me").

Guzikowski will take the lead on penning "The Wolfman," a new version of the classic werewolf story that hopes to avoid the mistakes of the 2010 adaptation. It will »

Universal Monsters Franchise Brings on 'Men in Black' Writer

12 November 2014 5:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

On the heels of today's news that Universal Pictures is adding The Wolf Man to its Monsters Shared Universe franchise, screenwriter Ed Solomon (Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Men In Black) has been brought in to round out the "writers room."

Ed Solomon joins Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners), whose involvement in The Wolf Man reboot was rumored earlier today and Fargo TV series creator Noah Hawley, who signed on last month, alongside writers-producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, in what is being compared to Pixar's brain trust or a TV writer's room. Each writer will have a hand in helping each other's movie as they all work to create a model for serialized storytelling.

While Aaron Guzikowski has been tasked with writing The Wolf Man reboot, Ed Solomon and Noah Hawley haven't been assigned a specific project yet.

Universal Assembles “Writer’s Room” for Cinematic Monster Universe; Wolfman, Bride Of Frankenstein, and More Reboots Planned

12 November 2014 4:22 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’ve written before about how this new “interconnected universe” approach to franchise filmmaking is a bad idea.  Approaching the film medium like a television series scales back the individualized nature of each film in favor of a serialized, streamlined approach, but Marvel movies make a ton of money so this trend continues to catch on, and Universal is going one further by assembling a literal writer’s room for its Monster Movie Universe. Screenwriters Alex Kurtzman (Transformers) and Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious franchise) are spearheading Universal’s reboot of its classic monsters, with The Mummy on tap to be the first film out of the gate in 2015 with Kurtzman directing.  But now the duo is getting some help in shaping the Monster Movie Universe, as they’ve assembled a brain trust of screenwriters that includes Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski and Men in Black writer Ed Solomon to develop subsequent features. »

Christopher Nolan comments on Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman

12 November 2014 1:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While doing the rounds for his latest blockbuster Interstellar [read our review here], director Christopher Nolan shared his thoughts on Ben Affleck’s casting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Nolan told The Daily Beast, “I’m only involved in that project in an advisory capacity as an executive producer, so I’m not involved in the day-to-day. When they told me that Ben was interested in doing it, I thought, ‘How thrilling!’”

Nolan went on to comment, “This is the guy who just won Best Picture as a director and as an actor, and I thought it would be a great thing that he’d be willing to do this. I think the guy is incredibly talented and I’m very excited to see what Zack and Ben do together.”

The initial backlash on Affleck’s casting has appeared to have died down, possibly helped by his recent strong turn in Gone Girl. »
