Article inside ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’ Will Set-up the Next 10 Years of Marvel Movies

4 people viewing this

| By SM - 4 minutes ago


With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 next week, James Gunn has already confirmed that he will return for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. After making that announcement, plenty of questions were thrown at the director about what we can expect from the next installment of the cosmic comic book franchise.

So far weÂ’ve learned that the third movie will complete a trilogy for this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and after that the team line-up will evolve to include new team members who will have been introduced by the end of the trilogy. But thatÂ’s not all that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will do. The sequel will help set up the next 10 years of Marvel Studios movies, and James Gunn is key in helping determine which movies will be made.

Find out more about Guardians of the Galaxy 3 below, but beware of huge spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, especially for the credits scenes and cameos.



Will Phase Four Be More Cosmic? James Gunn Will Plant The Seeds For Next Decade

Just recently, Kevin Feige mentioned that what follows The Avengers 4 may not necessarily be Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Marvel boss said “it might be a new thing” entirely. Comments that have followed from both Feige and Gunn have indicated that this new thing may be a direct result of whatever happens in Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

In all of the hullabaloo surrounding the press for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kevin Feige mentioned to The Hollywood Reporter that just as 10 years of Marvel movies have led up to Avengers: Infinity War, the third Guardians of the Galaxy film would help set up the next 10 years of whatever Marvel has planned. In a new interview with The Toronto-Sun, Gunn said this:

Quote:

“I will be helping to plant the seeds that will lead to the next decade. I’m helping to decide what projects we’ll be pursuing outside of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3… and what the next cosmic characters we will focus on.”
So even outside of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, James Gunn will be developing some other Marvel cosmic projects. That implies that perhaps the next era of Marvel may deal more with the cosmic side of Marvel Comics instead of mostly being on Earth like the first three phases of the MCU. That would make it easier narratively to walk away from characters like Iron Man and Captain America. In fact, by sticking with the cosmic side of the universe, perhaps thereÂ’s a way to enter an era of Marvel in an alternate universe that would allow for new versions of those characters that wouldnÂ’t require the return of Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.


But What About the Guardians of the Galaxy?

If Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is meant to complete a trilogy and set up the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, what exactly does that mean for the cosmic team of misfits? Well, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 already hints partially at one possible direction the franchise could take with a whole new series of characters.

In addition to Sylvester Stallone appearing as the character Stakar, aka Starhawk, there are several other members of another Guardians of the Galaxy team who make cameos in the movie. They are Aleta Ogord (Michelle Yeoh), Charlie-27 (Ving Rhames), Krugarr (a CG character), Mainframe (voiced by Miley Cyrus) and Martinex (Michael Rosenbaum). And James Gunn indicates that we havenÂ’t seen the last of Starhawk and the rest of the other Guardians from the comics, though it might not happen in Guardians of the Galaxy 3:

Quote:

“My plan is to see more of him. I’m not sure about him appearing in Vol. 3, we’ll have to see about that, but it’s our plan to see more of Stallone. Kevin [Feige] and I are working on what is going to become of the Marvel Cosmic Universe and where it’s going to go. We plan to see the rest of them in the future.”
Perhaps that means we wonÂ’t see these new Guardians appearing in Vol. 3, but they could very well be part of whatever the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe entails.

After all, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will include Adam Warlock, a character who was originally a big part of this filmÂ’s initial treatment, which could open up all sorts of doors for the MCU. ScreenRant mentions titles like Infinity Watch, The Annihilators or Guardians of Knowhere as possible directions for Marvel to take. Anything is possible, but weÂ’re not likely to find out what follows The Avengers 4 for awhile.

Adam Sandler is teaming up with Chris Rock once again for his next Netflix comedy feature film, The Week Of.

Deadline reports the movie, which will premiere on the streaming service in 2018, follows Sandler's character's daughter marrying RockÂ’s characterÂ’s son. The story will take place the week before the wedding. Production is set to begin this summer in Long Island.

“Similar in the romantic comedy tone of Sandler’s most recent film Sandy Wexler, this film will be the perfect vehicle for Sandler and Rock and their millions of fans around the world," said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.

Robert Smigel, who has written and exec produced some of Sandler's movies like Hotel Transylvania, Grown Ups, and Jack and Jill, will direct The Week Of from a script he co-wrote with Sandler. Allen Covert and Sandler are producing. The Week Of will be the fourth film in Sandler's Netflix deal, which was recently renewed for an additional four movies.

It was recently reported that Netflix users have spent "half a billion hours" watching Adam Sandler movies on the streaming service. Sandler's first two Netflix projects, The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, have become the most successful movie releases ever for the company. Check out our reviews of Sandler's latest Netflix project, Sandy Wexler, as well as The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over.

Johnny Depp Surprises Disneyland Guests by Appearing as Captain Jack Sparrow on Pirates of the Caribbean Ride



It’s not the rum, Disneyland visitors — that was Johnny Depp in the flesh!

Riders on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, got a special surprise on Wednesday night: Depp transformed back into Captain Jack Sparrow and greeted those who visited the inspiration behind the film franchise.

Perfectly slipping back into swashbuckling character, the 53-year-old actor rambled and pointed his sword at the guests, who made sure to capture the shocking encounter on their phones.

“You know those little Disney Myths like…Johnny Depp will dress up as Jack Sparrow and sit in the Pirates of the Caribbean Ride?” wrote one lucky fan who captured a video of the star. “Well…”

Another captioned her footage, “JOHNNY DEPP WAS ON PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN WHILE I WAS ON IT AND IM SCREAMING.”







Depp reprises his famous role in the fifth installment of the movie saga, Dead Men Tell No Tales, which opens next month.

Article inside Mike Myers Still Interested In Austin Powers 4

5 people viewing this

| By calle13 - 5 minutes ago


Yeah, baby! Austin Powers star Mike Myers says he’s still interested in doing a fourth movie in the spy spoof series. Myers was already an established star thanks to his characters on Saturday Night Live in the late 1980s and early 1990s (and two SNL spinoff Wayne’s World movies) when he introduced a new original character that made him a global phenomenon. Inspired by his late father – who introduced Myers to British cultural icons – the comedian created a groovy, ’60s era super spy with very bad teeth for the big screen action romp Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.

Two decades and two more Austin Powers films later, it appears that the comedy great wants to revive the series. Myers – who played Austin and his sneering nemesis Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers trilogy – tells THR in an oral history feature to celebrate the 20th anniversary of International Man of Mystery (May 2) that he’s game for more spy adventures. He says:

“I would love to do another, but you just have to see. I was devastated by my father’s death. But to have that turn into something that makes people happy is unbelievably satisfying. It’s that kind of stuff you never get used to or get tired of.”



The recollection of the first film for THR included director Jay Roach, as well as stars Elizabeth Hurley (Vanessa Kensington), Robert Wagner (Number Two), Mimi Rogers (Mrs. Kensington) and Seth Green (Scott Evil). The cast also included the late Carrie Fisher, who played a group therapist in a scene that included Dr. Evil and Scott. Recalling his work with Fisher, Myers says:

“I knew Carrie Fisher a little bit. I sent the script to her in the hopes that she would play the therapist. And she wrote a very lovely, supportive letter saying how much she loved the movie. She was so supportive during the shoot. She just kept giving me a hug and telling me, ‘I just love this scene and how weird the choices are.'”

Article inside Rumor: Robert Zemeckis In Talks For The Flash Movie

4 people viewing this

| By SM - 5 minutes ago


After losing two previous directors, Warner Bros. and DC’s The Flash may end up the better for it as a new rumor reports Back to the Future‘s Robert Zemeckis is in talks to helm the film. Back when DC and WB first announced their plans for a shared universe, this year’s Justice League was meant to be followed by films focusing on the Flash and Cyborg. Unfortunately, things behind the scenes at DC have been rocky. The Batman has had a number of creative shakeups, Shazam‘s Dwayne Johnson will now star in a separate Black Adam movie, and Cyborg has had very little movement.

The Flash, meanwhile, recently lost director Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) after original director Seth Grahame-Smith exited the project. The films has also hired a new writer to rework the script thatÂ’s passed through a number of hands. All told, itÂ’s hard to tell when the movie might actually arrive. The high-profile problems may prove to be a blessing, however, as one of HollywoodÂ’s most respected directors may be keen on tackling the film.

Screen Junkies are reporting a rumor theyÂ’ve heard that Robert Zemeckis is in talks to takeover as the director on The Flash. While exciting, itÂ’s far from a done deal. As soon, as the story broke, entertainment reporter Umberto Gonzalez countered stating that while Zemeckis has indeed spoken with WB about the film, heÂ’s far from a sure thing.


While rising stars like Grahame-Smith and Famuyiwa would have been interesting helmers for the more youth-focused The Flash, itÂ’s hard to not be excited about the possibility of veteran director Zemeckis tackling a superhero film. While the DCEU has reguarly been criticized for its poe-faced tone, future installments are said to bring more heart and humor to the franchise. The Flash certainly has decades of history in that department, and ZemeckisÂ’ work on Back to the Future and Forrest Gump proves heÂ’s up to the task of translating those themes onto the screen.

As far as action films go, the closest Zemeckis has come was the 2007 CGI-heavy Beowulf, which failed to impress. He was also attached to WBÂ’s Wizard of Oz remake for a time back in 2010, but it never materialized. Considering the rising pedigree of superhero films, it makes sense that someone like Zemeckis would at least be intrigued by the possibility. And while the deal is far from done, Zemeckis could be just the director to revive the floundering production of The Flash and renew audience anticipation. Will bring you any updates on this story as they arrive, so stay tuned.

Article inside Sony Announces ‘Masters of the Universe’ Is Set For A 2019 Release

3 people viewing this

McG’s ‘Masters of the Universe’ Hits Theaters On December 19th, 2019

By the Power of Grayskull! Sony finally announced that ‘Masters of the Universe‘ will be released on December 19th, 2019. The road to the reboot of the He-Man franchise has been long but the path is finally clear. While the film will have competition with both ‘Wicked‘ and live-action Disney film being released that weekend, it could do very well if marketed properly. McG, director of ‘We Are Marshall‘ and ‘Charlie’s Angels‘, recently spoke about plans for this franchise and the future seems very bright.

McG had this to say to ComingSoon.net:
“I think we want to honor the fan base, first and foremost. We also need to be cognizant of the incredible resonance of what Kevin Feige is doing with Marvel, and the balance of full-bodied entertainment. That it’s both credible and emotional, action-packed, and the story of a hero’s journey. It’s the genesis of He-Man, it’s the becoming of He-Man. We want it to be clicking on all cylinders in that regard. We’re not going to stop until we get it right.”

When it comes to building a cinematic universe, Marvel seems to be the template for studios. Everyone wants to build their own shared film universe and itÂ’s very hit or miss. But this news from McG could also lead to a She-Ra film so count me in! And maybe weÂ’ll finally get to see this Battle Cat.

‘Masters of the Universe‘ will follow Prince Adam, who has the ability to transform into a warrior called He-Man. He-Man becomes the last hope for a magical land called Eternia, ravaged by the villainous Skeletor.

Video inside ‘The Boondock Saints: Origins’ Prequel TV Series Announced

3 people viewing this

| By SM - 5 hours ago


DCTV is reteaming with The Boondock Saints creator Troy Duffy to reboot the cult classic film franchise for television. They are basically trying to kickstart The Boondock Saints: Origins with an independent pre-sale campaign with ridiculous pledge options. Find out more and watch The Boondock Saints: Origins trailer, after the jump.

The 1999 film developed a cult following, which helped spawn a sequel, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day and a two-part comic book series. The television prequel television will be available to fans first via a pre-order initiative before it airs on television.


For $597.77 (they claim the MSRP will be $797.77), they are offering The Boondock Saints: Origins Collector’s Box Set, which will include the first season of The Boondock Saints: Origins television series “ahead of ANY broadcast run on ANY network, cable, premium pay television or SVOD platform.” The box includes:

The Limited Edition CollectorÂ’s Box numbered, a DVD and USB Flashdrive Digital Download of Season One of The Boondock Saints: Origins, Commemorative Production Booklet, Limited Edition Signature Pennies, Baseball Hat, Sticker Set, Wall Decal, Temporary Tattoo Sheet, Bandana, Buff, Patches, Coldweather Beanie, 9” Lady Justice Polyresin Statuette, Lady Justice Bottle Opener, Shot Glass Bar Set, Flask, Official and Alternate Image posters (x2), Metal Cross Keychain, Motorcycle Club Kutte Patch Set, Fun Shapes Ice Cube Tray, Griffin Irish Whiskey Tumbler Set (of 2), Rosary Beads, 2018 Wall Calendar (13 Month), Playing Card Deck and Brothers 8″ Action Statuettes (2 pieces).

The offer is only available until June 25th, 2017 and the price is limited to 5,000 copies. Six hundred bucks seems likes ridiculous amount even for what you get, and that price doesnÂ’t even include shipping and handling. Plus, weÂ’re talking about paying for a bunch of merchandise from a show that hasnÂ’t been made yet, which might not even be good.

Better yet, for $5000 you can get a golden ticket for two to the exclusive green carpet world premiere marathon screening and launch party on St. PatrickÂ’s Day weekend, 2018 in Boston. You can learn more about all the pre-sale options at BoondocksBack.com. IÂ’m not against Kickstarter and crowd funding campaigns for movies and web series, but usually those offer less ridiculous pledge levels. I imagine anyone who has seen the documentary Overnight is getting a real kick out of this.

Not much information has been revealed at this point about the actual television series. There is a lot of information about the merchandise you can get by pledging but not much about the actual product youÂ’re helping to fund. But they did release the following teaser/fundraiser video:


The official press release follows:

TEAM BEHIND CULT CLASSIC FILM THE BOONDOCK SAINTS REUNITES FOR TV SERIES REBOOT

Exclusive Fan-Focused Pre-Order Campaign Kicks Off Today

TORONTO, CANADA (April 27, 2017) – Don Carmody Television (DCTV) today announced they have reteamed with The Boondock Saints creator Troy Duffy to revive the cult classic film franchise for television, with an exclusive fan-focused pre-order campaign of the newly reimagined installment – The Boondock Saints: Origins.

An American crime film written and directed by Duffy, The Boondock Saints first hit screens in 1999 and starred Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as Irish immigrant fraternal twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus, who become vigilantes in order to rid their home city of Boston, Massachusetts of crime, evil and corruption. The film garnered more than $260 million in worldwide theatrical and DVD sales and has a robust social media presence of more than four million followers.

The television reboot campaign officially kicks off today with the launch of a fan-driven pre-sales initiative at BoondocksBack.com. In addition to DVD and digital download pre-orders of the series, fans of the franchise will have access to experiences, merchandise and a limited edition subscription box. Fans purchasing the offering will also gain access to exclusive bonus and behind-the-scenes content.

“The Boondock Saints has become an irreverent cult brand that has resonated with loyal fans across the globe for almost 20 years”, said Don Carmody, Executive Producer and Chairman of DCTV. “We’re beyond excited to reward our fans with an unprecedented opportunity to go behind the curtain throughout the entire creative development and production processes via a myriad of exclusive material, outreach and sneak peeks”.

“A television series is the perfect medium for story telling inside the world of our beloved blue collar super heroes. The brothers have always been defenders of the people, justice, fairness and the city of Boston”, says Creator and Executive Producer Troy Duffy. “In this sensitive time of human rights unrest, government scandal and civil corruption, there couldn’t be a better moment to re-launch the brothers iconic brand of justice in the Cradle of Democracy”.

“The Boondock Saints” television series will be executive produced by Duffy (Boondock Saints, Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day), Carmody and David Cormican of DCTV (“ShadowHunters,” “Tokyo Trial,” “Between,” “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe.”)

Carmody, a producer of the first two movies in The Boondock Saints franchise and the Academy Award winning Chicago and Good Will Hunting, as well as the Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises, recently made the move in to producing television, including the Emmy nominated “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe” for Lifetime, “ShadowHunters” for Freeform and “Between” and “Tokyo Trial” for Netflix.

Additional producers, production team, showrunner and production details and worldwide casting calls will be released in the coming weeks as the campaign engages fans. The revamped logo design and branding for the television reboot has been made in association with Imaginary Forces, Ryde Studios and the producers.

Article inside Chris Pratt on What Went Wrong With ‘Suicide Squad': ‘Too Many Characters’

30 people viewing this

| By SM - 6 hours ago


“It’s kind of a miracle that anyone’s got it right. You know?” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” star says

Yes, “Suicide Squad” was panned by fans and critics, and Chris Pratt has a theory as to what went wrong with the DC film.

“I really like all the Warner Bros. movies,” Pratt told io9 at last week’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” junket. “I think they’re really cool and I’m not a real tough critic on those movies. But one of the flaws might have been they were introducing too many characters in ‘Suicide Squad.’ They spent 10 minutes telling us why should we care about these characters, rather than creating trilogies for each character and convincing us to care about the characters.”

Marvel, which produced “Guardians of the Galaxy” and its upcoming sequel in which Pratt stars, takes its time developing storylines of individual characters, argued Pratt.

“It’s like hardwood,” he said. “They grew it really slowly so it’s strong. They didn’t create ‘The Avengers’ first. They did ‘Iron Man.’ And they tested it to make sure it worked. Then they did [‘Iron Man II’] and [‘Iron Man III’], then they did ‘Cap,’ and then they did ‘Thor.’ And they created a thirst for these characters, and that’s when they put them in ‘The Avengers.'”

Warner Bros. is kind of doing what Pratt is suggesting. Gal Gadot will have her standalone “Wonder Woman” movie before November’s upcoming “Justice League,” and David Ayer plans to take Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, first introduced in “Suicide Squad,” into the spinoff, “Gotham City Sirens.”

Creating a franchise is “really f—– hard to do,” Pratt added.

“And it’s kind of a miracle that anyone’s got it right. You know?” he concluded. “So. I think it comes down to Kevin [Feige], his filmmakers, and ultimately, me, playing Star-Lord.”

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” will hit theaters on May 5.

By the Power of Grayskull! Masters of the Universe Movie Sets 2019 Release



Sony Pictures has today updated its release calendar, adding two major releases to the schedule. Look for the animated sequel Angry Birds 2 to arrive September 20, 2019 with McGÂ’s Masters of the Universe movie following on December 18, 2019. The still untitled animated Spider-Man movie sees a slight shift, too, moving one week earlier to December 14, 2018.

Masters of the Universe follows Prince Adam, who has the ability to transform into a warrior called He-Man. As He-Man, Adam becomes the last hope for a magical land called Eternia, ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor.

McG, who is directing the Masters of the Universe movie, recently spoke with CS about his plans for the fantastic world of He-Man.

Originally launched as a popular Mattel toy line in 1982, “Masters of the Universe” spawned several animated series (including the female-driven spinoff cartoon series, “She-Ra: Princess of Power”) along with a 1987 live-action film. Directed by Gary Goddard, the first Masters of the Universe movie stars Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, Frank Langella as Skeletor and, in one of her very first big screen roles, a young Courteney Cox as Julie Winston, a teenage character created specifically for the film.

“I think we want to honor the fan base, first and foremost,” he said. “We also need to be cognizant of the incredible resonance of what Kevin Feige is doing with Marvel, and the balance of full-bodied entertainment. That it’s both credible and emotional, action-packed, and the story of a hero’s journey. It’s the genesis of He-Man, it’s the becoming of He-Man. We want it to be clicking on all cylinders in that regard. We’re not going to stop until we get it right.”

The December 18, 2019 release date will see the Masters of the Universe movie opening just two days before both Universal PicturesÂ’ Broadway adaptation Wicked and a mystery live action Walt Disney Pictures fairy tale film. Angry Birds 2, meanwhile, is the first film to claim that date. The animated Spider-Man, then, is now set to face off against UniversalÂ’s Mortal Engines.

Article inside ‘Rogue One’ Creator John Knoll Says He’s Working On An Idea For Another ‘Star Wars Story’

4 people viewing this

| By SM - 10 hours ago


A billion dollars and some great reviews later, and Disney/Lucasfilm must be pretty delighted that John Knoll decided to pitch them the idea for a “Star Wars” spin-off that turned into last year’s blockbuster “Rogue One.” I mean, sure, you could have stuck the “A Star Wars Story” subtitle onto “Queen Of Katwe” and it probably would have made hundreds of millions of dollars, but “Rogue One” was a rare prequel and spin-off that felt truly satisfying, and was about as successful a launch to non-Skywalker stories within the universe as you could ask for.

What’s interesting about it is that the idea came from Knoll, not an A-list screenwriter or filmmaker, but a veteran Industrial Light & Magic visual effects supervisor (he’s currently the chief creative officer at ILM) who’s worked on countless blockbusters, including the “Star Wars” prequels. His concept — a heist to steal the Death Star plans, as mentioned in passing in the opening crawl for “A New Hope” — was a simple but brilliant one, and earned him story credit on the movie. And now, via The Hollywood Reporter, Knoll says he might have another idea up his sleeve.

“I have another idea I’ve been tinkering with,” Knoll told the National Association Of Broadcasters during a “Rogue One”-centric event. “It’s maybe 75 percent there. I haven’t pitched it to [Kathleen Kennedy]. It’s another ‘Star Wars’ thing.” Unsurprisingly, Knoll wasn’t ready to spill the beans on exactly what it is, but hinted that it wouldn’t just be a group of rebels trying to steal the plans to Starkiller Base or something close to “Rogue One” again. “There’s no reason to think Disney is going to stop wanting to make ‘Star Wars’ movies if there’s quality and there’s interest. It has unlimited potential. It has a huge number of characters, worlds… It’s a massive playground.”

With no further “Star Wars Stories” announced beyond next year’s Han Solo-prequel, we’re sure Kennedy will be receptive to whatever Knoll’s pitching, given the success of “Rogue One.” So long as it’s not “Young Jar-Jar: A Star Wars Story,” obviously…
