Disney Showed Off Some Footage of Guy Ritchie's Live-Action Aladdin

Disney recently surprised the CinemaCon audience at their presentation with a behind-the-scenes featurette for director Guy Ritchie's live-action adaptation of Aladdin. That video included footage from the set of the film featuring all of the actors all decked out in costume and acting out certain scenes in the film. It also featured the cast and crew talking about the film.

It's been a long time since we've heard anything about this film, but now we know that it looks like Guy Ritchie has brought this world and these character to life in a way that I think fans will enjoy.

Will Smith plays the Genie in the film and he's not the big blue version of the character you might expect. It's a human version of the Genie and Smith is sporting a mostly bald head with long braided hair coming off the top of his head. It was

10 Knockoffs Of Popular Kids Shows From Around The World

We all have our favorite cartoon that could never get replaced by any other. Kids shows sometimes get so popular, many creators want to take the inspiration. But sometimes, that inspiration isn’t very creative and it ends up being almost the same thing as the actual show. Today, we’re discussing rip offs from shows like “Gilmore Girls,” “Pokémon,” “Adventure Time,” “Kung Fu Panda,” “High School Musical,” “Gravity Falls,” “Star Wars,” “Digimon,” “Power Rangers,” and even “Tom and Jerry.” These shows have one thing in common. They all inspired some pretty similar knockoffs from around the world! Just wait until you see how a popular Russian cartoon faced critique when the audience realized it actually copied one of the most beloved Disney cartoons ever!

Go Old School in the New Kingdom Hearts III Mini-Game Trailer - Classic Kingdom

  • Cinelinx
Square Enix has revealed that Kingdom Hearts III will be honoring the past with a brand new trailer for the long-awaited game!  Take a look...

This takes me back.  Do you remember way back when, when handheld gaming was still not quite perfected and companies would distribute these black and white 2D games where the characters would jump on and off the screen, beeping and booping?  While the name of those devices escapes me, I do remember I played the heck out of a Power Rangers version of that and an Aladdin one.  They were the hardest things in the world to beat and, yet, they were somewhat revolutionary.

A new trailer from Square Enix reveals that Kingdom Hearts III will bring those devices back with a brand new mini-game.  However, unlike my experiences with Power Rangers and Aladdin, these mini-games will be of the Steamboat Mickey variety.

The trailer is delightful and lighthearted,

Pacific Rim: Uprising – A Huge Step Down?

Guillermo del Toro’s big-time monsters and machines epic was a smash hit with those who were massive fans of such things, while other reviewers felt it wasn’t much more than a different version of Transformers. Only $100 million came in from the box office in the Us, on the back of a $190 million budget. However, the film met with a certain degree of success in other countries and wrapped up with a total of $411 million. It was obvious that this film could end up being the first of many, and it was no surprise to hear that a sequel was in the works. However, a number of cast and crew were dropped, most notably Del Toro himself, a filmmaker already responsible for Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), Blade 2 (2002) and Hellboy (2004). As a result, Steven S. DeKnight took over directing.

How ‘A Quiet Place’ Roared at the Domestic Box Office

How ‘A Quiet Place’ Roared at the Domestic Box Office
Last weekend “A Quiet Place” (Paramount) accomplished a rare box office feat: it exceeded all projections. And its strong word of mouth could catapult John Krasinski’s $20-million horror sleeper to a mighty domestic total of $125 million or higher.

So far an otherwise lackluster 2018 has been dominated by Disney/Marvel’s “Black Panther,” the biggest film ever released in a year’s first quarter. By this point in 2017 five new releases had grossed over $150 million, compared to only “Panther” so far in 2018. Right now only “Ready Player One” looks to reach that level.

Something significant is going on. A new trend could cause a major shift in studio production– and give North American theaters a needed boost.

Despite the laser focus on the franchise and sequel films that dominate production slates, in the past few decades many lower-budget films (under $40 million) have managed to gross over $100 million domestic.

James McAvoy, Bill Hader in Talks to Join ‘It: Chapter Two’

  • The Wrap
James McAvoy, Bill Hader in Talks to Join ‘It: Chapter Two’
James McAvoy and Bill Hader are currently in talks to star alongside Jessica Chastain in next year’s “It: Chapter Two,” according to an individual with knowledge of the talks.

If he signs on, McAvoy will play Bill Denbrough, the leader of the band of social outcasts who vanquished Pennywise the Clown in last year’s “It.” Taking place over a quarter-century later, the adult Bill is now a successful author who must face his past when he discovers that Pennywise has returned to Derry, Maine. Jaeden Lieberher played Bill in the first film.

Hader is in talks to play Richie Tozier, the class clown played by Finn Wolfhard. Now a successful DJ as an adult, he too learns about Pennywise’s return and goes back to Derry to fulfill the promise that he and his friends made to each other at the end of the first film.

Chastain has already signed on to play Beverly Marsh, the lone girl of the group and Bill’s childhood sweetheart. Bill and Beverly kiss at the end of “It,” but in the time that has gone by, Beverly has moved away and married to an abusive husband.

“It: Chapter Two” will see the first film’s director Andy Muschietti and screenwriter Gary Dauberman return, along with the kids from the original film who will reappear in flashbacks.

Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg as executive producers. The film will start production this July with release scheduled for Sept. 6, 2019.

McAvoy appeared last year in the spy action film “Atomic Blonde” and M. Night Shyamalan’s “Split,” the latter of which is getting a sequel, “Glass” that will see McAvoy reprise his role as the possessed Kevin Crumb. McAvoy will also return for his fourth performance as Dr. Charles Xavier in “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” which was pushed back to a Valentine’s Day 2019 release for reshoots.

Hader appeared last year as the robot Alpha 5 in “Power Rangers” and stars in the HBO series “Barry.” Both he and McAvoy are repped by UTA.

“It” was the biggest surprise of the box office last year, opening to $123.4 million last year and grossing $700 million worldwide. That made it the highest grossing horror film of all-time, unadjusted for inflation.

‘Ready Player One’ Is the Career Boost That Steven Spielberg Needed: 8 Reasons Why

With $186 million worldwide in its first five days, “Ready Player One” should justify its $300 million investment (give or take) in production and marketing. That’s welcome news for Warner Bros., but the biggest winner is Steven Spielberg. He didn’t need to confirm his status in American movies, and this won’t be one of his biggest hits. Nevertheless, “Ready Player One” will be his biggest success since “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal” ten years ago worldwide. Here’s why.

It’s the riskiest film in his career.

It’s hard to remember a time when Spielberg wasn’t the big-budget blockbuster king. However, this film didn’t have a genre boost, or the support of a franchise.

It confirms his blockbuster reputation.

Domestic gross for “Ready Player One” could reach as much as $170 million. That’s a hit by today’s standards, although unremarkable in the scope of Spielberg’s $5 billion career.

Live-action ‘Gargoyles’… Could a fan film entice Disney?

Thanks to creative geniuses like Adi Shankar, amongst many others, the rise of the fan-film is ensuring that the big companies have to at least take note. I mean sometimes that can lead to Haim Saban trying to sue your ass But nobody can watch the opening scene of Power Rangers (2017) and not think maybe Shankar should be suing them. Then there is the trailer for the Sony and Pascal Pictures (love writing that) Venom which screams Shankars Bootleg Venom. However I am going off point.

While these companies claim to be upset with these fan made homages its pretty clear they are sitting back and taking notes from the people who know these characters best. Lets be honest who wouldn’t love a live-action Gargoyles movie? That last question was hypothetical…

In the hope to entice Disney to approve his proposal to make a feature-length live-action take on their property Gargoyles,

Surprising Nobody, ‘Independence Day’ Producer Has No Plans for a Third Film

It’s bizarrely easy to forget how bad the blockbusters of the last few years have been given how forgettable most of them have been. Even major releases of long-established and popular franchises have been disappointing at best and outright terrible at worst. I mean, how many people really remember that Power Rangers came out last year? How many people cared about Dead Men Tell No Tales? How excited were people for that Ghostbusters reboot that came out the other year? Perhaps the most disappointing sequel of the past decade has been Independence Day 2. I mean, for as fun as

‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Is the New #1, and ‘I Can Only Imagine’ Continues to Soar

‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Is the New #1, and ‘I Can Only Imagine’ Continues to Soar
Finally, we have a new top-grossing film as “Pacific Rim: Uprising” made $28 million and took the reins from “Black Panther.” It’s the first weekend since early February that Disney hasn’t been #1. “Pacific Rim: Uprising” did a little better than anticipated, but that’s damning with faint praise.

Worldwide it made $150 million (led by China), which means domestic represents less than 20 percent. And the film has a reported budget of $190 million, before marketing.

Total tickets sold were down by more than a third from the original “Pacific Rim” in 2013. That isn’t a terrible for a sequel, but this rendition had some original elements (including the addition of “Star Wars” lead John Boyega) to broaden appeal, and opened in an environment hungry for new product.

We are now 13 weeks through 2018, and the only films to open over $30 million are “Black Panther,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” and “Fifty Shades Freed.

Box Office: ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ to Unseat ‘Black Panther’ With Modest $23 Million

Box Office: ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ to Unseat ‘Black Panther’ With Modest $23 Million
“Pacific Rim Uprising” will knock “Black Panther” off its box office perch this weekend after a rare five-week rule.

The sci-fi tentpole “Pacific Rim Uprising” is heading toward a moderate $23 million debut at 3,708 locations — enough to top “Black Panther” by as much as $8 million. According to early Friday estimates, “Black Panther” is set for the $16 million range, which would leave the Disney-Marvel title with one of the top seven sixth weekends of all time. It will wind up the frame with $630 million at the domestic box office, surpassing “The Avengers” as the fifth-highest domestic grosser of all time, and trailing only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Avatar,” “Titanic,” and “Jurassic World.”

Universal-Legendary’s “Pacific Rim Uprising” is expected to earn as $10 million on its first day Friday, including $2.4 million from Thursday night previews. The movie, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 “Pacific Rim,” had been forecast to score between $22 million and $29 million.

Is the Success of ‘Black Panther’ Actually Hurting Other Films? Nobody Knows, and That’s Hollywood’s Real Problem

Scott Mendelson’s much-discussed Forbes.com article “‘Black Panther’ Should Terrify Every Hollywood Studio” makes a startling claim: One movie’s incredible and sustained box-office success is consuming potential profits of the would-be tentpoles released in its wake.

Mendelson points to the tremendous opening weekends of last March: “Logan” ($88 million), “Skull Island” ($61 million), “Beauty and the Beast” ($174 million), “Power Rangers” ($40 million) and “The Boss Baby” ($49 million). This year saw the disappointments of “Red Sparrow,” “Wrinkle in Time,” and “Tomb Raider,” not to mention “Annihilation.”

However, that assessment skips past another, obvious problem — Hollywood has narrowed its theatrical offerings to different flavors of the same high-priced, VFX-driven, boom-or-bust product — and the author assumes moviegoing is a zero-sum game. Certainly, there’s a rising-tide argument that “Black Panther” brought in droves of non-regular moviegoers, and that the tremendous buzz surrounding it – accompanied by being only the second superhero movie to receive an
