Spaceships, Fast Cars, Bombshells and Michael Bay Collide for 'Cosmic Motors'

2 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Daniel Simon’s book Cosmic Motors details the elaborate design of unique futuristic vehicles, revealing 3D models and other renderings of spaceships, racing cars, warships, balloons and more. It’s a neat science fiction art collection from our pals at Titan Books. Simon knows a thing or two about vehicle design, having worked on Tron: Uprising and Captain America: The First Avenger. Now Michael Bay is adapting Simon’s book for the big screen. Variety reports that Bay and Warner Bros. have hired Kyle Ward to pen the screenplay. He recently completed work on Underworld V and is currently writing Arabian Knights for Universal. Bay is producing Cosmic Motors. We’d be lying if we said we weren’t hoping to see his name touted as director one day soon since...

Michael Bay Drives To Cosmic Motors

1 September 2014 1:47 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Whether or not Michael Bay ends up directing Transformers 5, high-concept sci-fi vehicles are clearly still a part of his future. He's currently in the process of setting up Cosmic Motors at Warner Bros., a film based on Daniel Simon's book of lavish concept art. Kyle Ward, who wrote Machete Kills and the new Hitman movie Agent 47, has been tasked with creating the screenplay.Ward will also need to come up with a narrative on which to hang it, since Cosmic Motors in book form is more about concept than story. Simon has worked as a car designer for Lamborghini and Bugatti, as well as on projects like Tron: Uprising, Captain America: The First Avenger and Oblivion. His book imagines "spaceships, pods, race cars, giant trains, warships and balloons from various planets of the Galaxion system... from concept to completion" via sketches and 3D modelling.There's already a »

Great Lego Movie Promo Teaser for Ninjago

19 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Warner Bros. used The Lego Movie Blu-ray release as a way to promote their other upcoming Lego film property Ninjago. The studio released a funny promo teaser that kind of gives us our first look at Ninjago

The spot is called “Enter the Ninjago,” and it introduces the idea of a Ninjago movie in a very meta way. They basically incorporate a The Green Ninja a.k.a. Lloyd Garmadon from Ninjago into certain climatic scenes of The Lego Movie. Those scenes are reimagined to show the ninja really saving the day rather than Emmett.  

It's a clever way to get fans excited for what is to come. The movie is being written by Charlie Bean (Tron: Uprising). Original Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be producing.

The Ninjago movie is set in a mystical land where ninja, samurai, and sensei band together to battle dragons and snake men. »

Lego Spinoff 'Ninjago' Is A Go

21 May 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros is definitely in the Lego business these days. With a worldwide gross of $452.4 million since its February release, The Lego Movie proved itself to be the start of a viable franchise for the studio. So now, like everybody else, the studio wants to build a "universe" around the series. Conventional sequels are out. An approach of sequels combined with spinoff films is the new model. Just ask Marvel Studios, LucasFilm, Fox, and Sony- who are all trying, with varying degrees of success, to turn their geek properties into multi-tiered "cinematic universes."

We all ready knew a straight-up sequel to The Lego Movie was coming. But now comes word that a spinoff, based around Lego's Ninjago line, has been greenlit. Deadline is reporting that Ninjago will be directed by Charlie Bean, and it will serve as his directorial debut. Until now, Bean has worked in the art department for several projects over the years, »

21 May 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back when The Lego Movie co-director Chris McKay was hired to take the helm of the sequel that is already set for release in 2017, there were rumblings that the film would incorporate the gestating adaptation of the toy brick company's Ninjago line. The latter project has been in development since last summer, and the studio was trying to determine if they would get the film off the ground before The Lego Movie, and now everything is figured out. Deadline has word that Ninjago will hit theaters on September 23rd, 2016, produced by Phil Lord & Chris Miller, Dan Lin and Roy Lee, all coming off The Lego Movie. The film will mark the directorial debut of "Tron: Uprising" director Charlie Bean, which is promising because that series was gorgeous and cool. Ninjago seems like a far too specific realm of the Lego world to actually be as big of a hit as The Lego Movie, »

The Lego Movie Will Get A Ninjago Spinoff In 2016

20 May 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s safe to say that no one knew exactly how big of a hit The Lego Movie would become, yet it currently stands as the second-highest grossing film of the year, after earning a comfortable $452.4 million since it hit theaters in February. News of a sequel came as no surprise, and the film is currently set for release on May 26, 2017.

Warner Bros. executives clearly aren’t shying away from their love of the property, and are interested in expanding the franchise, beginning with a Ninjago spinoff. We were wondering if the film would arrive before or after The Lego Movie 2, and we now have an answer to that question. According to Deadline, the Ninjago movie will hit theatres on September 23, 2016.

Based on the Lego Group’s popular ninja-inspired mini-figure line, Ninjago will be helmed Tron: Uprising director Charlie Bean and produced by The Lego Movie producers Dan Lin, »
