Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Sam Esmail, you know the guy behind the creation of ‘Mr. Robot‘? He’s on tap to take on a Bermuda Triangle project for Universal. Several different sets of writers have taken on the task and not come up with anything the company wants to roll with. This could prove to be an unwritable movie, perhaps plagued by the mysterious things it’s about? One good thing is the previous writers are still accounted for, so they haven’t disappeared completely.

Universal Pictures is rebooting their monster movie franchise and the first tent pole to be staked is ‘The Mummy‘ debuting on June 9, 2017. Director Alex Kurtzman (‘People Like Us‘) worked with a stellar cast to kick off this new universe where all the films will be entwined and venture into each other’s films  à la the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We see the first crossover as Rusell Crowe’s Dr. Henry Jekyll is very visible in this film, or at least in the trailer. The cast includes Sofia Boutella, Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Chasty Ballesteros, and Courtney B. Vance.

Writer director M. Night Shyamalan (‘The Sixth Sense‘) went from one of the most exciting directors to a cliche joke seemingly overnight after ‘The Village‘ and, especially, the floating turd that was ‘Lady in the Water‘. The man heralded as “the next Spielberg” has seen his stock rise in 2015 with ‘The Visit‘ and once again with ‘Split‘ which many put on par with ‘The Sixth Sense‘. It’s ‘Split‘ that is gathering attention today with the announcement from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment of it’s release to Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand.

Hey guys, Jana here,

the-mummy-poster

I love Universal’s monster movies and I couldn’t have been more thrilled when I heard the company was rebooting the films into huge tentpole events all the while adding more depth to the classic monster universe. First up for renovation was ‘The Mummy‘ with Tom Cruise attached. Say what you will about him personally, or even religiously, but the man can carry a film and I’m nothing but excited for it. I suppose Universal hopes others feel that way, and have gifted us a little teaser to give us a small taste of what this movie can be.

After hearing that Tom Cruise has been set to star in ‘The Mummyreboot, it should come as no surprise that a huge name like Johnny Depp would be attached to ‘The Invisible Man‘ reboot. When Universal sets its mind to creating a movie monster universe that makes us think Marvel, they come out of the gate swinging. First Cruise, now Depp, what is next and who is behind this? Angelina Jolie for ‘Bride of Frankenstein‘ maybe?

GOLDEN GLOBES TOM CRUISE WITH AWARD

Universal has made no secret about their wanting to re-launch their original monster universe. You know, The Mummy, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, all the favorites, and why not? These are great stories that can be excellent every time they’re retold. What will make the difference now, besides having a damn good special FX team, is the star. You’ve got to have some massive star-power to anchor a film of this magnitude, especially if it’s the first of their reboots on the monster series, they want it to go off with a global bang.

CinemaCon in Las Vegas has shown Universal rolling out release dates for highly anticipated sequels. By far, the most heartbreaking segment came when actor Vin Diesel took the stage to share the studio’s plans for ‘Furious 8‘ to be released April 14, 2017. Diesel reminisced from two years ago, when he took the same stage with Paul Walker, his costar who died as result of a car crash in 2013, when they announced the plan to move forward on the seventh film in their rocket hot ‘Fast and Furious‘ series.

Angelina Jolie may be coming off her evil power trip as ‘Maleficent‘ but she’s still going to wielding some pretty massive power. Universal Pictures just picked up rights to a script written by Jolie, and is considering making it her next movie. In addition to writing it, she will star with Brad Pitt and direct. The rumor of a Jolie written-script had been floating around for a few months. ‘By The Sea‘ will give producer credits to both Jolie and Pitt.

Hi Bryan Here….

Since Paul Feig’s ‘Bridesmaids’ has grossed almost $300 million worldwide, Universal wanted to secure Feig to do ‘Bridge Jones 3’.  But Feig exited the project after he developed a draft for the script.  Add to that, he is not committing to the ‘Bridesmaids’ sequel yet, because Kirstin Wiig and Annie Mumolo are currently pursuing other projects.  So, it just so happens that Feig is currently available for work.  Enter ‘Better Woman’, which will be Feig’s next project.

Film Review: ‘American Made’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Cocaine is a hell of a drug. Globally, it is the second most popular and in the ’80’s, it was king. And Director Doug Liman wants you to know that one American is partly responsible for not only the narcotic’s rise in popularity, but also for fueling one of the largest cartels in global history. In the new action biopic, ‘American Made‘, Tom Cruise flies high and returns to familiar aviation territory as Barry Seal, a TSA pilot turned drug smuggler. This role really puts Tom back into his adventurous element and is easily one of his best performances in recent memory. He proves that his charm and charisma isn’t lost, and personal judgements aside, sometimes it takes crazy to play crazy.
