Article inside Jamie Foxx Will Play Mike Tyson In Biopic From 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' Writer Terence Winter

By SM - 10 hours ago


For those with a good memory, Jamie Foxx playing Mike Tyson is way old news. "I've reached out to Mike, and I've been open about it," Foxx told MTV back in 2009. "I think that, of all the biopics that are out there, he has the most interesting story that no one has ever heard." The idea back then was that Taylor Hackford, who directed Foxx to his first Oscar win in 2005 for "Ray," would also helm the project. And as Hollywood is wont to do, there hasnÂ’t really been much a peep since.

That’s changing, as “The Wolf of Wall Street” screenwriter/”Boardwalk Empire” showrunner and lead writer Terence Winter has been hired on to pen the script and the project looks like it has a new lease on life. No studio or director is attached as of now, but that could change fast.

Variety, who breaks the news, doesnÂ’t say which era of TysonÂ’s career it would track, but obviously the former boxer is one of the most well-known and also infamous sports figures in history. Tyson savaged the boxing world at the tender age of 18 and at 20 became the youngest pugilist to ever become heavyweight champion. His career was then marred by an embarrassing loss to Buster Douglas, a rape conviction charge that landed him in prison for three years and then a comeback made ugly by an ear-biting incident with then champion Evander Holyfield. Tyson lost his boxing license shortly thereafter and while the fighter did box again, it was the beginning of the end of his sporting career.

Foxx wonÂ’t be a stranger to the boxing world in movies. The actor played Drew Bundini Brown, an assistant trainer and cornerman of Muhammad Ali, in Michael Mann's 2001 drama "Ali." No doubt, watching the action from the corner probably gave him the itch to step inside the ring.

Article inside Universal to release 'The Huntsman' in 2016, pushes back 'The Mummy'

By SM - 10 hours ago


So much happened before Snow White dropped in.

Universal Pictures announced the release date for The Huntsman, a prequel of sorts to 2012Â’s Snow White and the Huntsman with Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron reprising their roles of the Huntsman Eric and evil queen Ravenna. The film, directed by Frank Darabont, will be released on Friday, April 22, 2016 and reveal how the two characters interacted before Snow White ever met a dwarf.

The Huntsman takes the date previously occupied by The Mummy, which will now be pushed back two months to Friday, June 24, 2016. The reboot of the action-adventure films written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) will be conceived by a highly respectable team of producers including Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek), Roberto Orci (Transformers), Chris Morgan (Fast and Furious 6), and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy).

Box Office: 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Earns $11.2M Thursday

By nightmare - 10 hours ago

Box Office: 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Earns $11.2M Thursday


Marvel and Walt DisneyÂ’s Guardians of the Galaxy exploded out of the gate on Thursday, with $11.2 million, besting the likes of Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($8.7m), Transformers: Age of Extinction ($8.8m), Godzilla ($9.3m), and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($10.2m) to snag the yearÂ’s best Thursday debut.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around long enough that we can make reasonable predictions about the opening weekend take just from the Thursday night box office. Marvel Universe films are relatively consistent in terms of how they play out over their respective opening weekends. When Walt Disney reports that MarvelÂ’s Guardians of the Galaxy, their first non-sequel in three years, earned a solid $11.2 million on its advance-night Thursday showings in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D, the biggest Thursday debut of 2014, it stands to reason that weÂ’re probably looking at around $112-$140 million for the weekend. Right? Well, this obviously may be the exception to the rule. Because, wow, that is a stunning Thursday number and frankly throws all of my math out the window.

In 2011, Thor debuted with $3.25 million in midnight showings, leading the way to a $65m debut. That means Thor earned about 5% of its opening weekend at midnight. Captain America earned 6% ($4m) of its $65m haul at midnight two months later. That was relatively normal when it came to non-sequels outside of heavily-anticipated teen or geek-centric fare like The Hunger Games (13%) or Pacific Rim (9.6%), especially back when midnight/Thursday sneaks were just starting to become status quo across-the-board. MarvelÂ’s last release, Captain: America: The Winter Soldier scored $10.2m in April but was unexpectedly front-loaded over the weekend, pulling 10.7% of its debut weekend on Thursday and ending the frame with a still dynamite $95m debut.

For reference, Iron Man 2 earned 5.6% of its $128m debut ($7.5m) in 2010 at midnight (just before midnight screenings became a regular event for even general moviegoers), Iron Man 3 earned about 9% of its $175m debut on Thursday, and The Avengers earned about 9% of its $207m figure at Thursday midnight screenings. In terms of out-of-summer debuts, Thor: The Dark World earned $7.1m on Thursday last November, leading to a $85.7m debut weekend, or about 8% of its weekend take before the official start of the weekend. Iron Man 2‘s 5.6% is basically out of the question, although such a figure would give Guardians of the Galaxy a crazy $200 million opening weekend.

With the aforementioned $11.2 million Thursday haul, I would argue that weÂ’re looking at an opening weekend between $75m (15%) and $93m (12%) for the weekend, with reasonable guesstimates falling just a bit over/under the $85 million mark. Now it is possible that Guardians of the Galaxy is not noticeably more significantly front-loaded than a conventional Marvel title, so itÂ’s not quite time to write off some pretty insane debut weekend possibilities. It could pull in 11% of its take last night for a $101m weekend. Heck, the standard 9% gives the James Gunn sci-fi adventure $124 for the weekend, about on par with Man of Steel. ItÂ’s not a sequel so there theoretically should be less front-loaded, but itÂ’s a more entrenched-in-Marvel cult property so its appeal to general audiences is still somewhat in question in terms of wekenend legs.

Frankly the Thursday number is so large that IÂ’m not entirely sure what to think at the moment, so I guess weÂ’ll just wait until the Friday numbers roll in. Of note, August blockbusters are still relatively rare and recent blockbusters are even more rare. Point being, we donÂ’t have a ton of midnight/Thursday box office data to compare it to. The biggest August blockbusters were mostly several years ago at best and the midnight/Thursday screening thing wasnÂ’t as much of a mainstream phenomenon back in the days of Signs or Rush Hour 2 and not even in the late 2000′s for The Bourne Ultimatum and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The only relatively recent August blockbuster is Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Obviously weÂ’ll know when we know.

The advance night number is already awesome, even if it’s massively frontloaded. The worst case scenario is that it plays like The Fault in Our Stars (around 17%) and merely gets to $65m. The plausible scenario is a 12% number similar to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which would give the Marvel adventure a massive $85m debut weekend, easily besting The Bourne Ultimatum‘s $69m record-August debut. The word of mouth is pretty going to be terrific and the reviews are nearly unanimously positive.

Come what may, weÂ’re presumably looking at the biggest August debut ever and presumably the second-biggest non-sequel debut for a Marvel film after the $102m debut of Iron Man. Or the film could be massively frontloaded andIn the meantime, let me open the comments portion to discussion of the movie itself, now that itÂ’s officially in worldwide release. Spoilers are allowed, as long as they are clearly labeled.

Article inside Keenan Ivory Wayans passed Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence for “In Living Color”

By thetfd - 10 hours ago


Who could forget one of the most classic sketch comedy television series in history?

Today’s general audience is a little on the young side, but there are still ways to experience the hilariousness that was In Living Color.

In Living Color ran from 1990 – 1994 with five seasons and 127 episodes, and it got its name from harboring a cast that was predominantly black, which was different from the usual sketch comedy shows that had a primarily white cast (Saturday Night Live).

Comedic brothers Keenen and Damon Wayans created, wrote, and starred in the show, and they had actors alongside of them that would soon make major moves within their own careers.

Besides the entire Wayans family having regular roles throughout the show, In Living Color also featured actors such as Jim Carrey, David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx, and Tommy Davidson—all before they made it big!

The show even featured an opening theme song from rappers Heavy D and Eddie F and routines from the show’s dance group The Fly Girls, which had Jennifer Lopez as a member and Rosie Perez as the group’s choreographer. Both Lopez and Perez are now actresses, and Lopez is also a well-known singer.



Keenen took a trip down memory lane earlier this month on Access Hollywood.

He sat down with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover and watched old clips from the show. They also talked about the actors Keenen chose to be a part of the show, as well as the actors that he passed on.

“I missed out on Martin Lawrence and Chris Rock, John Leguizamo,” Wayans said. “Not that they weren’t good—it just was at that particular time they were not on the same level as the people that I had already cast.”

Wayans said that he thought about all of these actors for future appearances, but they had already made a name for themselves in their individual careers.

Lawrence has gone on to appear in many films and television shows, including his self-titled television series Martin. Rock is a well-known comedian, and Leguizamo has also shown his face in a plethora of famous films.

Who knows what In Living Color may have come to had Wayans hired some of the actors and comedians that we love today, but the show is still a classic success as is.
