Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Film needs to clear $700 - $750 million just to start making a profit. This was a film that was in the planning in some form or another for years and from conception was expected to at minimum make over $1 BILLION. Warner Brothers was hoping to net 100s of millions from the theatrical alone and even...

Re: Evangelion's site and Facebook/Twitter covers updated with new images - First teases of Shin Eva

The new Khara2 twitter account is fun. Basically, it seems someone at Khara is allowed to tweet the experience of "keenly making" Final. It's a less formal official account that offers a more behind-the-scenes look at production. Nothing too informative yet. Though apparently Mahiro Maeda ...

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

They aren't trying to own the world. They basically do. Based on 2016 ticket sales (theatrically is still the easiest venue to gather data because it's the oldest and has so many moving parts) this Super Disney would have accounted for over 40% of all tickets sold globally that year. Also, I would n...

DISNEY buys FOX

It's official. Short of Washington DC regulators suddenly reversing their pro-capitalism mindset for the first time in years Disney has purchased most of Fox. The "Major Six" studios - Disney, Warner Brothers, 21st Century Fox, Universal, Columbia & Paramount - are now the "Major ...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

The Disaster Artist is fine. I enjoyed James Franco's performance but it never escapes feeling like a mere imitation of Tommy Wiseau and if I want to be entertained by things Tommy Wiseau I'll watch the weird alien that is Tommy Wiseau. Regrettably, despite James Franco's best efforts to deliver a ...

Jeff Goldblum is just a cameo. Actual Goldblum statement to Empire Podcast about his role in Jurassic Park 5: "It's small. Who knows, they may cut me out entirely! But if I stay in I'll be a sprig of parsley or a little garnish, hopefully with some impact!" So I figure he's just in the cou...

Re: [Film] Alita: Battle Angel

I knew most of the movie was shot on a greenscreen in lieu of shooting on location.... I did not know they went a step further and have gone "Full Anime" turning the lead actress into a creepy anime-eyed CG character. Oooof. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=105&v=CqYfXOYqzy4

Re: Jurassic World

Jurassic Park 5 is still based on a script written by Colin Trevorrow so I feel the movie can only rise as high as J.A. Bayona's talent can carry it. The likelihood of a solid narrative with actual human characters existing between the set pieces is unlikely.

Zero chance he'd direct. He could direct an episode of the TV series but a feature film? No way. Tarantino is repeatedly on the record that he plans to retire at 10 movies. He's currently working on his NINTH feature (he counts Kill Bill Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 as one movie and rightfully so cause the d...

Watched Cars 3. Kinda was bored by it. The whole thing is just so oddly made & constructed. For one, the movie tries very hard to be a treatise against commercialism/merchandizing & that feels artificial in a movie that only exists because of the rampant merchandise. Two, the movie also trie...

Not likely. It is. They've also been continuously shooting both movies since January of this year & won't finish filming until late Summer 2018. 18+ months of consecutive shooting. When Infinity War hits theaters next year they'll still be in the process of filming the second half of the Two-Fil...

Well, it's the combined budget for Avengers: Infinity War & Avengers 4 cause they're shooting back-to-back so there's very little financial risk for Marvel. These movies are going to be huger than huge. Plus, Marvel's best trait continues to be marketing as they hype these two movies up as "...
