Ghost in the Shell Lands Wolverine Star Rila Fukushima

25 May 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans have been clamoring for a live action adaptation of the manga series Ghost in the Shell for a very long time, and they are finally getting it next year. Though the producers of the film have come under fire for some of their casting choices, they are making a step in what seems to be the right direction. Rila Fukushima, who starred alongside Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine, has been added to the cast of the film.

The casting news comes from THR, though the report wasn't able to confirm who she will be playing. Scarlett Johansson is playing the character Kusanagi in the film, which is a casting choice that had many people very upset, as the character is supposed to be Asian. Paramount came under heavy fire for the choice and was accused of whitewashing. Things only got worse when it was reported that the studio had »

Arrow And Wolverine Actress Rila Fukushima Boards Ghost In The Shell

25 May 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Rila Fukushima has closed a deal to join Paramount’s live-action rendition of Ghost in the Shell.

Best known for her involvement across both Wolverine and Arrow, the outlet didn’t disclose which character Fukushima would be playing in the 2017 feature, but news of a Japanese actress being drafted in for the high-profile adaptation is certainly promising, even if skeptics still lambaste Ghost in the Shell for whitewashing its preliminary cast.

Whatever your stance, in light of today’s casting, that ensemble now includes Scarlett Johansson in the role of the Major, a deadly human-cyborg who spearheads an elite task force known as Section 9. Meanwhile, there’s also parts for Michael Pitt as key villain The Laughing Man, Beat Takeshi Kitano as Daisuke Aramaki and Juliette Binoche as Dr. Ouelet. Game of ThronesPilou Asbaek also stars along with Chin Han, Danusia Samal, »

Margot Robbie, Dexter Fletcher and Max Irons will also star in Terminal, from director Vaughn Stein.

Upcoming film thriller Terminal, starring Margot Robbie, just extended its cast with some familiar faces. Simon Pegg, Mike Myers, Max Irons, and Dexter Fletcher have joined the cast of the Vaughn Stein film.

The neo-noir will be Stein's first feature as a director, though he has worked on countless high profile films as an assistant director, including Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Snow White And The Huntsman, and The Danish Girl. He has also served as an assistant director on 17 episodes of Elementary.

Terminal tells the story of two hitmen (played by Irons and Fletcher) who go on a quasi-suicide mission for a mysterious employer and the right price. On said mission, the two men eventually come upon a woman named Annie (played by Robbie) who may or »

23 May 2016 8:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Rila Fukushima has joined Scarlett Johansson in DreamWorks' Ghost in the Shell. Based on the popular manga of the same name, the movie follows Kusanagi, a cyborg that is a part of an elite cybercrime-fighting task force known as Section 9.  Snow White and the Huntsman helmer Rupert Sanders will direct the feature from a script written by Jonathan Herman and Jamie Moss. Ghost in the Shell, which will be distributed by Paramount, was widely accused of whitewashing after Johansson and other white actors were cast as the traditionally Japanese characters.    The Tokyo-born Fukushima joins a

Why Kristen Stewart Was Happy To Not Be Part Of The Huntsman: Winter's War

10 May 2016 6:01 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When The Huntsman: Winter's War started to gear up for production without any hint of Kristen Stewart being involved, everyone started to wonder if the scandal that plagued Snow White and The Huntsman was the defining factor in such a development. Well, after several years, Stewart has set the story straight, and her non-involvement was purely voluntary . and, according to her, for good reasons. Stewart was in the middle of being interviewed by Variety when questions about the 2012 film's sequel, which crashed and burned at last month's box office, came into play. But while Snow White and The Huntsman left Kristen Stewart excited about a sequel, a slippery slope lead to Stewart souring on the project, as she explains in the following quote: I read a few scripts. None of them were good. None of them were greenlight-able. And I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the »

‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Review: Johnny Depp Plays Dress-Up and Has Daddy Issues — Again

10 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

There is perhaps no math nor pie chart to prove this, but just because certain movies become big hits, it doesn’t mean that anyone is clamoring for a sequel. Whatever perfect storm of inducements got people to buy tickets for “Snow White and the Huntsman” didn’t bring them back to theaters for “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” and let’s not even get into the “Avatar” saga that James Cameron seems to believe the world is breathlessly awaiting. Speaking of “Avatar,” it was mainly on that film’s 3-D coattails that Tim Burton‘s “Alice in Wonderland” became such a huge hit, »

Kristen Stewart Says Snow White Relationship Wasn't the Cause of 'Huntsman' Absence

10 May 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Much gossip was had over Kristen Stewart's time on Snow White and the Huntsman and her absence from its sequel The Huntsman: Winter's War. Now that the film has crashed and burned, Stewart is happy to clear the air on why she wasn't involved. And no, it wasn't her relationship with the director. The Huntsman did surprisingly poor at the box office (it's yet to make back its production budget) considering its star power. Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Chris Hemsworth just couldn't revive interest in the franchise that was launched with Twilight star Stewart in the lead. HitFix's Chris Eggertsen even wrote, "Kristen Stewart's absence was the fantasy sequel's greatest weakness." But she wasn't always meant to be missing. In fact, the actor was originally supposed to reprise her role for the sequel. So what happened? She explains in a recent Variety cover story: Stewart »

Why Kristen Stewart Turned Down the 'Snow White and the Huntsman' Sequel

10 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The "Snow White and the Huntsman" prequel "The Huntsman: Winter's War" bombed at the box office and with critics last month, and now, "Snow White" star Kristen Stewart is opening up about her dismissal from the series -- and how she's glad she turned down a chance to cameo in the disappointing follow-up.

In an interview with Variety, Stewart explained that she was in talks with studio Universal about a possible "Snow White" sequel after the first flick was a hit back in 2012.

"I read a few scripts," the actress told Variety -- but she wasn't impressed.

"None of them were good," she continued. "None of them were greenlight-able."

Stewart told the trade that she met with Universal to discuss the future of the franchise, but that those talks never materialized into anything. And then, she found out about the existence of "Winter's War" via a press release. Here's how »

Kristen Stewart Denies Sanders Sex Scandal Led to Huntsman Snub

10 May 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Kristen Stewart, who has been switch-hitting of late, denied her runaway libido led to the loss of the lead role in a “Snow White and the Huntsman” sequel. To the contrary, she said she booted the part, although producers blindsided her with the news she was out. “The Huntsman,” starred Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. Producers also brought in Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt to give the movie star power. But critics ravaged the film. ...Read More »

“Thank God”: Kristen Stewart Says She Turned Down A Cameo Role In ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’

Universal tried to have its cake and eat it too with “The Huntsman: Winter’s War.” Not only did the studio attempt to make a prequel/sequel to “Snow White And The Huntsman,” a movie no one really cared about to begin with, but it tried to do so without the titular fairy tale character played by […]

Kristen Stewart Opens Up About Breaking Up With ‘The Huntsman’ Sequel

10 May 2016 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kristen Stewart has only starred in one tentpole since wrapping the “Twilight” franchise in 2012: Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman,” which grossed nearly $400 million globally. But she skipped out on the prequel “The Huntsman: Winter’s Warrior,” which opened last month on the shoulders of Chris Hemsworth and bombed at the box office.

In an interview for this week’s Variety cover story, Stewart spoke out for the first time about what happened. “I read a few scripts,” Stewart recalls. “None of them were good. None of them were greenlight-able. And I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the story could go. Maybe Chris was more into it. I actually don’t f—ing know.”

She insists that the tabloid coverage of her relationship with director Rupert Sanders — the two were caught kissing by the paparazzi shortly after the movie opened in the summer of »

K-Stew On Not Returning For "Hunstman"

10 May 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Kristen Stewart is at Cannes ahead of the premiere of Woody Allen's "Cafe Society" this week to launch the festival. Outside of the "Twilight" franchise, one of Stewart's most famous roles was that of Snow White in Rupert Sanders' "Snow White and the Huntsman" in 2012.

Stewart didn't return for the prequel "The Huntsman: Winter's War" that opened last month, likely a good thing as that film bombed with critics and at the box office. Speaking with Variety this week, Stewart explained why she wasn't involved:

"I read a few scripts, none of them were good. None of them were greenlight-able. And I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the story could go. Maybe Chris was more into it. I actually don't f---ing know.

It wasn't a situation where I got kicked off a movie because I got in trouble. We had been in talks months »

Kristen Stewart Lets Down Her Guard: Inside Her Reinvention

9 May 2016 5:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kristen Stewart arrives at a French restaurant in Los Feliz without an entourage — no publicist, no bodyguard. She’s incognito, with a hat pulled low on her head, hands in her pockets, bare arms dressed with tattoos. Looking like any other hipster, she greets the waiter with a mellow “What’s up, dude?” (“dude” and “f—k” are her two favorite words) and orders a glass of champagne with a cup of ice. As she reflects on her life, she takes periodic sips, letting the cubes, one by one, melt into the fizz.

At only 26, Stewart is in the middle of reinventing her career. After catapulting to fame at 17 in the young-adult vampire franchise “Twilight,” she couldn’t leave her house without flashbulbs trailing her every step. The public became obsessed with her relationship with her then-boyfriend (and co-star) Robert Pattinson, and she topped every studio’s wish list for it-girl parts. »

'The Huntsman: Winter's War' failed for one simple reason

7 May 2016 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Universal clearly thought it had a new franchise on its hands after the success of Rupert SandersSnow White and the Huntsman in 2012, but that film's sequel/spinoff The Huntsman: Winter's War has officially withered and died at the box office, bringing in a gross of just $19.4 million in its opening weekend and a smidge over $9 million in its second. Throughout its month-long run in domestic and foreign markets (it opened in several territories in early April) the film has managed to climb to $134 million worldwide, but with few territories left to open in and little juice left in its U.S. release, the film will likely struggle to hit the $200 million mark -- or about half of the first movie $396 million haul. First, the sorta-good news: The Huntsman's production budget is about $55 million less than its predecessor, with a total cost of about $115 million as opposed to the original's $170 million. »

‘Ride Along 2’ Rides Up to No. 2 on Disc Sales Chart

5 May 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox’s “The Revenant” remained the top-selling disc for the second consecutive week, holding on to the No. 1 spot on the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart for the week ended May 1.

But Walt Disney Studios’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” regained the top spot on the Blu-ray Disc chart, bumping “The Revenant” – which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a rugged frontiersman who squares off against a bear who mauled him and a confidant who betrayed him – to No. 2.

A new release, “Ride Along 2,” from Universal Pictures, bowed at No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart (and No. 3 on the Blu-ray Disc chart). The film, which earned $90.9 million in U.S. theaters, is a sequel to the 2014 original and features returning stars Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in a series of fast-paced, comedic misadventures.

The No. 3 spot on the overall disc sales chart went to “The Force Awakens, »

6 Movie Spinoffs That Worked Out Really Well

4 May 2016 12:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whenever a supporting player in pop culture becomes a fan-favorite character, it usually doesn’t take too long for forces both behind the scenes and in the fan community to ramp up hopes that a spinoff story centering on that breakout figure will come to fruition. Television has traditionally seen far more success in this regard, with shows like Frasier and Angel among the most popular series to expand upon a pre-existing hit. Yet, even on TV, these gambles sometimes fail to pay off. Remember Joey?

Perhaps it is that risky proposition that has made spinoffs relatively rare on the big screen over the years. Historically, few films endeavor to take select characters on their own adventures, and even fewer manage to turn a profit. However, with shared universes and franchises fast replacing A-list stars as the pre-eminent box office draw, it looks like the industry is ramping up the »

Tomb Raiding: Rebooting Lara and Where She May Plunder Next

Tony Black on the new Tomb Raider movie reboot…

It’s been a seriously long time coming but, at last, we have a new Lara Croft. Despite Daisy Ridley aggressively campaigning in recent weeks for the part, recent Oscar winner and hot property Alicia Vikander will now be headlining the long-gestated Tomb Raider reboot. It’s potentially superb casting, taking a celebrated actress who very much looks the part, capable of a cut glass English accent, who could revitalise what already should have been one of the biggest and best action adventure franchises out there, were it not for two underwhelming movies that have barely lingered in the memory. Angelina Jolie actually deserved better as Lady Croft, an iconic actress in a legendary role who was saddled with average directors, scripts and plotlines in original Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and later The Cradle of Life. Vikander, we can hope, will »

The Huntsman’s Winter War: Why the Box Office Defeated Him

28 April 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on the box office failure of The Huntsman: Winter’s War…

So it seems we have the first confirmed box office dud of 2016: The Huntsman’s Winter War, positioned as a potential new fantasy franchise under the Universal banner. It was confirmed in the Guardian yesterday that Universal, who broke box office records last year thanks to Jurassic World & Fast and Furious 7, now stand to lose at least $70 million on a film which has only made around the $200 million mark in global till receipts, and needed well over that seventy million roughly just to break even, let alone turn a profit on a $115 million budget – which isn’t even a lot in the grand scheme of budgets these days. Perhaps the biggest surprise of this revelation isn’t that Huntsman lost money, it’s that nobody seemed to see this coming. Nobody seemed to stop at the »
