Nine Deleted Subplots That Would Have Changed Entire Movies

14 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Movies never end up as they were originally envisioned. For various reasons, directors often decide not to film a section of the shooting-script. Also, throughout the production and post-production process of filmmaking, the cutting-room floor becomes cluttered with scenes, plots or characters that were chosen for deletion. Sometimes, these deleted scenes or subplots would have changed the entire film. Here are 9 movies with abandoned storylines would have altered the way we look at the overall movie.  

 

The Cloverfield Monster was a young child: We never find out very much about the rampaging monster that attacks New York in Cloverfield. Where did it come from and why did it attack the city?  Jj Abrams has said that, in the original conception of the story, the creature was a child belonging to an ancient Lovecraftian race that lies sleeping in the depth of the ocean. A young child from this race is awoken by a crashing satellite. »

Hugh Jackman Says Goodbye To His Mutton Chops As Wolverine 3 Wraps Shooting

22 August 2016 11:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The X-Men franchise will reach an end of an era next year when Hugh Jackman bids farewell to perhaps the series’ most iconic character in Wolverine 3 (which is rumoured to be titled Wolverine: Weapon X). Not much is known about the movie as of right now, though Patrick Stewart has a leading role, so we know it takes place in X-Men: Days of Future Past‘s new timeline.

Past rumours have also pointed to Wolverine 3 adapting “Old Man Logan” and introducing X-23, so it’s pretty obvious that Logan is going out with a bang as Jackman moves on from the role which made him a household name since his first appearance as the clawed mutant way back in 2000’s X-Men.

As part of his goodbye to this part of his life, the Australian actor has today shared a video on Twitter showing him shaving off Wolverine iconic mutton chops for the very last time. »

14 August 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Despite Suicide Squad's large, to-be-expected second weekend drop, the film pulled in more than enough to hold off all newcomers for a second weekend at number one at the box office as it now totals more than $465 million worldwide. Meanwhile, Sony's R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party scored a strong second place finish, ahead of fellow new releases including Disney's reboot of Pete's Dragon and Paramount's release of Florence Foster Jenkins. Overall the top twelve totaled $157.8 million, up 16% from last year. At the top of the chart, Suicide Squad dropped 67.3% for an estimated $43.7 million, almost spot on what we were expecting after its opening weekend seven days ago.

During an interview with Slash Film, X-Verse “architect” Simon Kinberg has provided an update on several upcoming X-Men projects in Deadpool 2, Gambit and the Marvel-produced TV series Legion.

“I think Deadpool 2 will comment on anything that’s happening in movies today especially in superhero movies,” said Kinberg. “The sort of glut or saturation of these movies and the proliferation of sequels is definitely something we’ll play around with.”

Kinberg also provided an update on the casting of Cable, stating that: “I’ve seen rumors from about everybody from Arnold Schwarzenegger to I can’t even remember. We haven’t cast him is the truth.”

Deadpool 2 Will Spoof Superhero Sequels Says Producer

5 August 2016 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Deadpool is a very self-aware superhero movie that often breaks the forth wall to talk at the audience. And it never stands above itself, always well-aware of its own genre. That idea and concept will be taken to new heights in the upcoming Deadpool 2. And while the sequel may not directly take on what is happening in pop culture at this very moment, it will address the idea of sequels, going out of its way to spoof and comment on them. Especially what they do wrong so often. Speaking with /film, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg had this to say about the impending follow-up to this year's blockbuster release.

"I think Deadpool 2 will comment on anything that's happening in movies today especially in superhero movies. The sort of glut or saturation of these movies and the proliferation of sequels is definitely something we'll play around with."

The original Deadpool was directed by Tim Miller, »

Kiefer Sutherland reveals that the Flatliners remake is actually a sequel

31 July 2016 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month it was revealed that Keifer Sutherland has signed on to appear in the upcoming Flatliners remake, where he’d be playing a “seasoned doctor”. Well, it turns out the movie isn’t a remake after all, but rather a sequel, as Sutherland has revealed to Metro that he’s actually reprising his role from the 1990 original.

“I play a professor at the medical university. It is never stated but it will probably be very clearly understood that I’m the same character I was in the original Flatliners but that I have changed my name and I’ve done some things to move on from the experiments that we were doing in the original film.”

The new Flatliners is being directed by Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and will see Sutherland joined in the cast by Ellen Page (X-Men: Days of Future Past »

'Wait a minute! You're telling me there's a movie coming that stars both Dave Bautista and Jean-Claude Van Damme?' Yes, sucka! And that movie is Kickboxer: Vengeance! After releasing an exciting new trailer earlier in the week, Rlj Entertainment has now released a brand new poster, which arrives as a real kick to the face.
