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.

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.

Film Review: ‘Kevin Hart What Now?’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

8P05_D002_00556 In Universal Pictures’ Kevin Hart: What Now?, comedic rockstar KEVIN HART follows up his 20 13 hit standup concert movie Let Me Explain, which grossed $32 million domestically and became the thirdhighest live standup comedy movie of all time. Hart takes center stage in this groundbreaking, recordsetting, soldout performance of “What Now?”—filmed outdoors in front of 50,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field—marking the first time a comedian has ever performed to an atcapacity football stadium. Credit: Frank Masi

 

An extended opening title sequence takes you through, Kevin Hart, a wannabe James Bond, literally a direct rip of various Bond films. The graphics were pretty cool. Enter the dramatic casino satire, an over-the-top, talking over others’ lines testament to the lunacy of Kevin Hart, Agent 0054. Next comes the stand-up concert that is the meat of Kevin Hart What Now? Hart shoots out of the stage in Trinity (yes, Matrix rip) style and the show begins.

Film Review: ‘The Girl on the Train’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

68fbb8f3-27e3-4a97-bda7-d9b8d2a05ee4

I can certainly see the appeal of Paula Hawkins’ first successful novel ‘The Girl on the Train‘, which was released in 2015, and was fast-tracked and optioned into a major motion picture by Universal Pictures to come out this weekend. It has some deeply dark and layered characters and tackles a range of emotions and vices from alcoholism, abuse, and even a murder. It’s a good story with a who-done-it angle that feels fresh and original. The problem here is that the film felt a bit rushed and lazy, which gave way to the very slow burn the film has and never quite stays on point with its many flashbacks and timing, often times showing the same scene several times. It just got tedious and redundant twenty minutes in and never stopped being overly dramatic with longing stares, tears, and silence.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Neighbors1

In what I personally declared one of the absolute worst movies of 2014, ‘Neighbors‘ stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron turned in some fairly uninspired performances. I generally like the two actors, especially Zac Efron in ‘The Paperboy‘, so I want to say it was the abysmal story line that limited their range. It wasn’t a huge laugher in my book, but still went on to become the highest grossing comedy of the 2014 year. I can only hope it’s because everyone wanted to laugh, maybe they did – maybe they didn’t, but that’s not a good enough reason to stop Universal Pictures from announcing a sequel.

Dwayne Johnson Announces Robert Ludlum Adaptation!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 30th, 2014

Hi guys, Jana here,

dwayne_johnson_36553

Robert Ludlum is the brain that brought us the Jason Bourne novels that have spawned into an incredibly lucrative film franchise. Even though the writer died in 2001, doesn’t mean that his cannon of work is at rest. Prior to becoming a writer, Ludlum was a U.S. Marine, a theatrical actor and producer. His experience in the theatre is likely what has led his written works to film adaptation so smoothly. He authored some 27 thrillers and although Bourne may be the most well-known of Ludlum’s characters doesn’t mean he was the only one.

Few films can weave a storyline around so many actors and cities and still be a huge draw at the box office, I’m giving you the news about one of them today. The series I’m talking about are the Jason Bourne films, starring Matt Damon. We started with ‘The Bourne Identity‘ in 2002, then ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ in 2004, followed by ‘The Bourne Ultimatum‘ in 2007. In 2012, Damon stood aside and cheered Jeremy Renner on as he made the character of Aaron Cross, uniquely his own, with ‘The Bourne Legacy‘. Renner brings to life another character from the expansive world  that writer Robert Ludlum has created that both characters, and a score of others live in.

THE FILM

In the next installment of Liam Neeson saving the world, or in this case, 150 people 30,000 feet up in the air on a commercial airliner from New York to London, things are so over-the-top ridiculous, things tend to not make a whole lot of sense. But what do you really expect from aLiam Neeson movie these days? That being said, this thriller in the air called ‘Non-Stop‘ is quite fun and is less cheesy than the ‘Taken‘ films, but not as gritty as ‘The Grey‘.

Hi, Jana here,

coens

If we were to talk about filmmakers that have a specific feel to their films there would be a wide variety of names on that list. But if we narrow the field down to filmmakers that are a wildly successful pair of brothers, Joel and Ethan Coen would undoubtedly fit the bill.

The Coen’s have a peppered legacy of complex films with ‘Raising Arizona‘, ‘Fargo‘, ‘The Big Lebowski‘ and ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou‘ among many others. Looks like the pair is not taking any time off from a career that has most recently been recognized with an Academy Award nomination for 2013’s ‘Inside Llewyn Davis‘. Universal Pictures has picked up ‘Hail, Caesar!‘ the latest original screenplay from the Coen’s. Besides writing the script, they will direct stars George Clooney and Josh Brolin in starring roles.

Hi, Jana here,

Paul-Walker-Dead-2871365

After months of grieving the death of cast mate, Paul Walker, shooting has resumed on the set of ‘Fast & Furious 7‘. We’ve also learned how Walker will remain in the film. “They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base,” one source close to production tells us. “Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI.” The same source says this is the best option the producers and Universal Pictures have decided on, the studio feels confident fans of the series will feel satisfied with the result.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Julianne-Moore-as-Little-Mermaid-Annie-Leibovitz

Director Sofia Coppola is taking a new approach to her career in moving away from the more adult themes to a straight-on kids movie. She is signing her contract to direct a live-action adaptation of ‘The Little Mermaid‘ for Universal Pictures. The goal for this project is to fast track it to hopefully compete in 2015. Sofia has kids now, and like so many actors who are parents, tend to do more kid-centric films because of their little ones. Seems like Sofia is no different.

Ride Along‘ is still in theaters. Before the proverbial body of the original is even cold, Universal Pictures executives are already planning the sequel. The movie hasn’t even made it to the gap between theatrical release and DVD release, yet! It’s like Hollywood is checking the obituary column of the paper to get the jump on a great rent-control apartment in the city.

Ron Howard To Film Biopic on Barry Seal!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 10th, 2014

Jana B. here,

ron-howard-jj-abrams

Universal Pictures was caught up in a bidding auction against Sony. The prize? A hot script by Gary Spinelli (Stash House) that has yet to be written for the rock bottom price of $1 million! Ron Howard is already attached to direct. I’m sure Universal is banking on Howard’s vision to garner the film a big box office viewing, after all he is a proven success with films like ‘Apollo 13‘, ‘A Beautiful Mind‘, ‘Cinderella Man‘ and ‘The Davinci Code‘ that have ruled their box office runs. Doug Davison, Brian Grazer and Kim Roth are all attached to produce or executive produce. Grazer is a success on his own steam and is often paired with Ron Howard for cinematic success.

If you’re disappointed that you won’t get to see the cute, quirky, 3 fingered minions from the ‘Despicable Me‘ movies before the third installment of the crazy popular ‘Despicable Me‘ series on June 30, 2017, I have fantastic news! Illumination Entertainment with Universal Pictures announced the 3D CG animated comedy, ‘Minions‘! Slated to release on December 19, 2014, we also know who two of the stars will be. Jon Hamm, crazy popular as Don Draper from ‘Mad Men‘ and Sandra Bullock, (‘Gravity‘, ‘The Blindside‘). Bullock is voicing the Audrey-Hepburn-esque Scarlet Overkill, as dangerous as she is fashionable, and bent on world domination. Hamm is voicing Scarlet’s husband as inventor, Herb Overkill. The film sees the faceless many minions competing to be a henchman for Overkill.

Ron Howard’s new movie is called ‘Rush‘ and is a Formula One racing drama that follows the rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda in the 70s. Chris ‘Thor’ Hemsworth and Daniel ‘Inglorious Basterds’ Bruhl will star as the drivers. The film will release September 27th from Universal Pictures. I must say, it looks damn good.

John Hughes would not be happy about this. Universal Pictures and Silver Pictures are set to remake ‘Weird Science’, the 1985 iconic film that was the superlative tale of nerds who had their ultimate wish come true. Joel Silver will produce the film as he produced the original with Hughes back in the 80s. Michael Bacall will pen the screenplay for the remake. Bacall wrote the remake of ‘21 Jump Street’ (which was another 80s remake) and the party film ‘Project X’.

It’s Super Bowl Day, meaning us fellow movie geeks are only interested in a couple of things. 1) Movie trailers. 2) The commercials. 3) Food. 4) The Puppy Bowl. Not necessarily in that order. I mean, the Puppy Bowl is really the only time out of the year where the entire world is at peace and everything is a bit brighter. But, this isn’t about the Puppy Bowl.  This is about some really amazing movie trailers that will be shown during the big game this year.  We can expect a new ‘Iron Man 3‘ trailer, a new ‘World War Z‘ trailer, ‘The Lone Ranger‘ trailer, and another ‘Oz‘ trailer.  Plus some other surprises.  Below are the trailers you can see before anyone else does.  Enjoy.

‘E.T.’ Will Return To The Big Screen!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 10th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

That’s right, folks.  ‘E.T.’ will be on the big screen again, thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events.  Screening will take place October 3rd at 7:00pm at select theaters across the country.  This marks the 30th anniversary of the film and most likely is geared to promote the new blu-ray coming out as well.  This was one of the first films I saw in the theater and it just blew my mind.  It was one of the first times my Dad and I bonded over a film.  Needless to say it holds a special place in my heart.  Not only will you get a newly remastered version of the film, but also a journey of the making of ‘E.T.’.  And yes, folks, this is this original film, not the version with the extra scenes or the CGI’d walkie-talkie replacements.  Spielberg acknowledged his fuck-up long ago and apologized.  The same can’t be said for Lucas.  I’m super excited about this and hope all of you can make it and take your kids to see this on the big screen.  Official press release below.

Hi, Drew here.

I had the opportunity to speak briefly with the legendary Bernie Wrightson at Sci-Fi Expo 2012.  Wrightson is truly a master of his craft.  His line work is incredible and proof is in the pages including his work for Creepy, Heavy Metal, being co-creator/artist of Swamp Thing, and his more recent work with writer Steve Niles including “The Ghoul”, “Dead, She Said”, and Doc Macabre.  The three works with Steve Niles can all be found in separate color volumes or altogether in one beautiful over-sized black and white hardcover which really shows Wrightson’s amazing pencil and inking skills.  I asked Wrightson how he met Steve Niles to create this long-lasting creator relationship and he said that he in fact met Niles at a convention in Dallas!

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.

Hello, Jana here,

Community_title

Community‘. Yup, I’m going to throw in my two cents with the announcement that Yahoo has decided to prolong the show’s inevitable demise by giving it a location transplant. If network TV chooses to axe a program, there is still the chance that an online company can jump in with CPR and revive it. Yahoo has been wanting to share the success that Netflix, Amazon and Hulu have all enjoyed. Yahoo and Sony Pictures Television will stream a 13-episode sixth season of the ensemble comedy. Dan Harmon is carrying the flag as showrunner, once again. “I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo,” Harmon said in a release announcing the deal. “I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online. I vow to dominate our new competition. Rest easy, Big Bang Theory. Look out, Bang Bus!”

Hello, Jana here,

Meryl-Streep

There are a few names in Hollywood that can cherry-pick working conditions. Meryl Streep is among the very top of that list. Beginning her career in 1975 with a total of 74 projects in her resume, she has played every kind of character you can imagine. Her performances are moving, funny, realistic or greatly fantastical. No matter what film she’s in, she’s the top of my list of favorite actresses. I’m in high anticipation of what will surely be, another excellent musical performance in the film version of ‘Into The Woods‘.
