According to The Hollywood Reporter Paramount has stopped development on a sequel to 1993’s zombie thriller World War Z. The movie has been in various states of development for years, with the most recent version being shepherded by David Fincher (The Game, Fight Club) Apparently the issue is related to budget–ironically enough, the same problem […]
Words matter, so if you read ‘China Box Office: ‘Solo’ Bombs With Third-Place $10.1M Opening’ from The Hollywood Reporter you’re likely to assume that the movie failed there. And in a sense it did, though Star Wars movies since being purchased by Disney have underperformed in the Middle Kingdom before–Rogue One: A Star Wars Story […]
I can’t speak for anyone else, but I bet there’re a lot of people asking ‘Who asked for a Tomb Raider reboot?’ And the answer is ‘No one.’ Then again, who asked for new Star Wars films? Star Trek? The answer–while there are always people who would love to see more of these characters and […]
I just read in The Hollywood Reporter that Apple is reportedly vying for the rights to distribute James Bond (along with Amazon, Sony and Warner Bros) movies, which I am trying to get my head around.

First, Seth Grahame-Smith left due to ‘creative differences’–a term that is so vague that it could literally mean just about anything–now according to Comicbook.com his replacement, Rick […]
And Yes, it’s as good as you hear it is. And there are ways to program against the box-office behemoth that is Captain America: Civil War, though pitting it against another superhero movie is probably not it. In other words, I’m saying Warner Bros moving Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from the same release date was, […]
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is a pretty bold choice as far as musical accompaniment goes–I am reasonably comfortable in saying that it probably cost Warners a pretty penny to secure the rights–but I am still not sure how to feel about the new trailer for DC Films upcoming Suicide Squad. My problem is that it’s hard […]
Legendary Pictures despite a somewhat acrimonious split from production partner Warner Bros, has been trying to make a go of it with Universal Pictures.
Sometimes the best strategy is to let the movie do the talking.
For the one or two of you that have seen James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, this is the scene at the end (not the ‘button,’ or ‘stinger,’ only a tool would spoil that), and part of the reason why this is, so far, quite the most innovative Marvel movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). […]
