‘Friday Night Lights’ New Film: David Gordon Green Set to Helm ‘Reimagining’ of Beloved Football Book

‘Friday Night Lights’ New Film: David Gordon Green Set to Helm ‘Reimagining’ of Beloved Football Book
But who could possibly play Coach? Variety reports that “Stronger” and “All the Real Girls” filmmaker David Gordon Green is in final negotiations to direct a “reimagining” of the 2004 Universal film “Friday Night Lights,” which later spawned a beloved NBC series of the same name. The outlet hastens to add that this new film is both not a sequel to the film, directed by Peter Berg, or based on the series which starred Kyle Chandler as the lauded coach of a Texas high school football team.

Instead, the film will be a “new property” that is “still focused H.G. Bissinger’s non-fiction book about the 1988 Permian High School Panthers as the new Texas football team makes a run towards the state championship.” The book served as the inspiration for both the original film and television series.

Variety adds that Universal has long been eager to get back on the

Every Gory Detail We Have About the Halloween Reboot, From the Cast to the Release Date

Halloween 2018 just got kicked up a notch. It was recently announced that Jamie Lee Curtis will be reprising the iconic role of Laurie Strode in Halloween, another reboot of the beloved horror franchise due out later this year. It's an exciting reveal for one of the first-ever scream queens because truly nothing is scarier than watching her fend off the psychotic, unstoppable killer with only a wire hanger in the 1978 original. Then again, doesn't Laurie get stabbed by her deranged sibling and thrown to her death in the franchise's eighth movie, Halloween: Resurrection? If you have questions about that, or anything else related to the movie, check out all the juicy details we've rounded up so far ahead.

Dwayne Johnson thanks fans as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle becomes Sony’s biggest ever domestic release

Despite coming under fire when it was first announced that a reboot of the beloved 1995 Robin Williams movie was in development, Sony scored a huge success with December’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, with the film proving a hit with audiences and critics alike.

Holding its own at the box office despite competition from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Welcome to the Jungle has now reached a new milestone, overtaking Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man to become Sony’s highest grossing domestic release ever.

In North America, the film has grossed $404 million, topping the $403.7 million record set by Spider-Man back in 2002. Globally, it is Sony’s second biggest release of all time behind Skyfall ($1.1 billion), having pulled in an impressive $951 million.

As you’d expect, Sony has already announced a sequel which is being fast-tracked for release around Christmas 2019, and actor Dwayne Johnson has shared a brief update on his Instagram,

Karen Gillan discusses Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’s box office success

Sony Pictures scored a major hit with its recent reboot Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, with the film holding its own against Star Wars: The Last Jedi and pulling in a hefty $931 million at the worldwide box office.

Speaking to Screen Rant, actress Karen Gillan has been chatting about the success of the movie, which is Sony’s second-biggest domestic release behind 2002’s Spider-Man, and the studio’s second-biggest worldwide hit after 2012’s Skyfall.

“I think we all had confidence in it, but it was still a ballsy move to release up against Star Wars because that’s just, yeah, that’s like a crazy thing to do, I think,” said Gillan. “We all felt like it was a really strong film, but I don’t think any of us anticipated quite this level of success.

Review – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Blu-ray Bonus Features

Tai Freligh reviews the bonus features on the Blu-ray release of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

I thoroughly enjoyed Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, so when the opportunity came up to review the home video bonus features ahead of the film’s release, I jumped at the chance. I was curious as to how they would address the original film with Robin Williams (hint: there’s a featurette for that!) and I wanted to see the gag reel because having seen a few movies now with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, I knew it should be comedy gold (it wasn’t).

Like any home video release with more than just a trailer included on the DVD, the bonus features for Jumanji were hit and miss. There were several throwaway features, but what saved the whole lot was two features in particular.

Game Night movie review: triumph of the nerds

MaryAnn’s quick take… Absolutely hilarious, full of smart snarksters, comedic suspense, and gleeful smashing of action-movie clichés. Part screwball comedy, part romantic adventure, all pure movie-movie joy. I’m “biast” (pro): love Bateman and McAdams

I’m “biast” (con): not generally a fan of Hollywood comedies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto) women’s participation in this film

(learn more about this)

Let me tell you how much I love this movie.

This is not a thing I say often about Hollywood studio comedies. But Game Night! This is the perfect GenX movie in the way that I don’t think I’ve felt a Hollywood movie be perfectly GenX since John Hughes’s teen comedies of the 80s. For the first time in a long time, ordinary snarky nerds absolutely rule here: not in a “downtrodden dork getting smacked but persevering” kind of way; not in an aggressive,

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle tops $900 million, now Sony’s second biggest movie of all time

Despite competition for tickets ramping up with the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has hit another box office milestone this weekend as the film passed the $900 million mark worldwide.

Domestically, the Jumanji sequel has now earned $377.6 million, making it Sony’s second-biggest North American release of all time behind 2002’s Spider-Man. Internationally, it has amassed $527 million, for a global haul of $904.6 million. Again, that is second only to Skyfall, which Sony distributed in 2012, with the Bond film earning $1.109 billion worldwide.

Welcome to the Jungle has certainly exceeded all expectations, particularly as it has found itself competing with Star Wars: The Last Jedi throughout its run, and Sony will be hoping for a repeat performance with the sequel, which the studio is fast-tracking for release in 2019.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle set to become Dwayne Johnson’s biggest ever domestic hit

Although it came in for a lot of flak when the project was first announced, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to be a firm favourite both with critics and audiences alike.

This past weekend it topped the U.S. box office, becoming the first December release to hit #1 in February since James Cameron’s Titanic, and now the film finds itself just $300,000 shy of Furious 7’s $353 million North American haul, meaning it is close to become Dwayne Johnson’s biggest ever domestic hit.

Worldwide, Welcome to the Jungle has pulled in $855.7 million, so it will still trail both The Fate of the Furious ($1.236 billion) and Furious 7 ($1.516 billion) globally. Nevertheless, it’s still proven to be a very welcome hit for Sony, with the studio already announcing that it is in development on a sequel.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle passes $750 million worldwide

Audiences may have been sceptical when the project was first announced, but Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to be a runaway success at the box office, with the film pushing its worldwide haul to $767.8 million and counting.

Domestically, Jumanji held on to top spot for the third weekend in a row with $20 million, fending off competition from war drama 12 Strong ($16.5 million) and crime thriller Den of Thieves ($15.3 million), to pus its North American haul at $317 million. That’s the fifth highest of any Sony release, bettered only by the original Spider-Man films and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Welcome to the Jungle is also demonstrating impressive staying power internationally, pushing its haul to $450 million from the international markets and holding on to top spot for the fourth consecutive weekend.

After finishing runner up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the North American box office for the past three weekends, the action-adventure film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has dethroned Episode VIII at the fourth time of asking, and in doing so has also passed the half billion dollar mark worldwide.

Jumanji beats The Greatest Showman on its opening day but succumbs to Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has opened ahead of The Greatest Showman on its opening day at the box office.

Bringing in an estimated $7.2 million on Wednesday from 3,765 theatres, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has made a decent bow at the start of the Christmas movie season rush.

It finished considerably ahead of Hugh Jackman’s The Greatest Showman, which opened to $2.5 million from 3,005 locations.

Neither film could of course get anywhere near Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which added to its already titanic haul with $16.9 million on Wednesday, bringing its six day total to $278.8 million.

The Last Jedi will also stay on top over the Christmas period, and is expected to bring in as much as $120 million between Wednesday and Monday, well ahead of the $48 million or so expected from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
