by tomvek » Sun Aug 17, 2008 11:31 am

Basically the same idea from GR, post any & all movie news/trailers/clips/related goodies in here.

There will be a few of changes though...

Trailers will now be posted in the opening post (in alphabetical order) as well throughout the thread, this should make it easier to find any trailer you want.

Can people also include sources when posting articles/movie news.

No official news yet, but it has been confirmed that Plan B Entertainment has obtained the rights & screenplay is being written by Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski.

Great work as usual Sarge.

Am I the only one who thinks that Death Race could actually turn out good despite Paul W.S. Anderson dircting it?

Purgatory's kind of like the in-betweeny one. You weren't really gooseberry fool, but you weren't all that great either. Like Tottenham.

Thank you.

It does looks pretty good considering the director, I'll reserve judgement until I've seen it/seen some reviews.. :)

"Twilight" Bites Into Potter Spot

With "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" having vacated the November 21st release date slot, a big hole was left in the Fall schedule - one which Disney's CG-animated "Bolt" quickly moved in to exploit.

However "Bolt" will not do anywhere near the numbers of a "Potter" film, so there's still plenty of room for other titles to come in and today one just did - Summit Entertainment's anticipated adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's teen romance novel "Twilight".

Originally slated for release on December 12th, the film has now been moved up three weeks to open on November 21st, the week before Thanksgiving. The move is a smart one, "Twilight" consists of much of the same fanbase as the Potter books (ie. millions of young girls) and the December 12th weekend isn't renowned as a particularly profitable one.

A spokesman says "The new release date for 'Twilight' allows the studio to both bring the film to the written-series' enormous fan base sooner, and to present the film in more theatres prior to the holiday movie-going season where traditionally screen time for any popular film is limited."

Summit CEO Rob Friedman said "When Warner Bros. decided to move 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' to the summer of 2009, we saw a unique opportunity to slot in our film which has been gaining tremendous awareness and momentum over the past several months. We by no means are trying to fill the shoes of the incredible 'Potter' franchise for 2008, rather we are just looking to bring the fans of Stephenie Meyer's incredible book series the film as soon possible from a programming perspective."

I'm looking forward to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, the next Pitt/Fincher collaboration.

I've read up on it, and the premise sounds a little strange but I'm sure it'll be aces. I've not seen a Fincher film yet which I haven't loved.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

WB taps into ties at DC Comics

When it comes to superhero properties, Warner Bros. couldn't be sitting on a more enviable source: DC Comics, home to Batman, Superman and other well-known caped crusaders.

But to make its heroes fly at the megaplex, the studio knows it needs to make the right movies. The financial payoff is too big to squander with a creative misfire like "Catwoman."

"They can really be an evergreen source of enjoyment and income," says studio topper Alan Horn, referring to the coin a hit pic can collect at the B.O. and from sources like TV, homevid, vidgames and merchandise. The studio earned $1 billion from DC fare alone in 2005, when "Batman Begins" was released. "If you do it wrong, you're dead, you're out of there."

Getting out there, however, has taken time.

Warners and DC (both Time Warner entities) have labored in vain over another Superman, and launches for Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Arrow and Green Lantern. It's maddening for fans as rival Marvel Comics has successfully begun financing its own slate of pics, first with "Iron Man," then a reboot of "The Incredible Hulk" this summer.

That could soon change, as Warners is readying to revamp how DC's properties are developed -- changes that could be announced within the next month.

DC doesn't have a separate film division the way rival Marvel does, which is moving forward with an "Iron Man" sequel and adaptations of Thor, Captain America and the superhero team-up "The Avengers" for 2010 and 2011.

That means Warners doesn't have a sole cheerleader for its comicbook projects, or someone to work closely with filmmakers to develop them.

Until now, those duties have been shared by production prexy Jeff Robinov and Gregory Noveck, senior VP of creative affairs for DC Comics, who has served as a liaison between the comicbook publisher and the studio.

Some say Robinov's attention may be pulled in too many directions, given his other responsibilities, which include the rest of the studio's slate and marketing. Noveck formerly was Joel Silver's TV topper.

"We're having a lot of internal discussions on it," Horn says. "We haven't committed to any change at DC at this point," adding that both Warners and DC are committed to turning "the properties into viable movie product in an intelligent way so that we introduce them like planes on a runway. They have to be set up the right way and lined up the right way and all take off one at a time and fly safe and fly straight."

One high-profile property is "Justice League," which Warner Bros. had hoped would start production before the writers strike.

But given that it unites Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Arrow, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter, the studio is trying to figure out how such the pic (cast with younger actors) would affect its existing Batman and Superman franchises -- and whether the script respects how the characters play off each other in the DC universe.

To put it simply: the studio doesn't want to piss off the Comic-Con contingent.

"We're not off the notion of a Justice League," Robinov says. "There's a massive interest and knowledge in the comicbook industry and it takes time to sort of catch up and understand the characters and the history, where they've intersected with each other and what their worlds are. That's part of the education that we're going through."

When it comes to Batman, the future of the franchise is in Christopher Nolan's hands. That's what a successful reboot with "Batman Begins" and breaking records with "The Dark Knight" will do.

There's a deal for the director to helm a third pic, but he has yet to decide on whether to tackle it yet.

"We have no idea where Chris is going with this," Horn says. "We haven't had any conversations with him about it."

Either way, there's no question Warner Bros. will produce more superhero pics. The question is when.

"These are big, iconic characters," Noveck says. "So when you make them into a movie, you'd better be shooting for a pretty high standard. You're not always going to reach it, but you have to be shooting for it. We're going to make a Justice League movie, whether it's now or 10 years from now. But we're not going to do it and Warners is not going to do it until we know it's right."

Its a disgrace the way there isn't already a Flash film in the making and Ryan Reynolds cast as the Flash. He'd be perfect if you ask me.

It looks decent enough in the pictures that have been released, but as I've never actually sat down & watched a DBZ episode...I have no idea what the movie is going to be about.

Jurassic Park IV

^^Links to IGN.

I've always loved this series of movies, for better or worse, and I am looking forward a ridiculous amount to the next one. I don't think anything is confirmed yet, but it has been rumoured unlikely that Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum (the best characters) are returning, while Attenborough and Laura Dern are likely going to star.

Mixed bag really.

Don't suppose you have a link to any pics? Used to love Dragonball Z but i really haven't being paying attention to what's been going on with this film.

EDIT: A quick look on IMDB sorted me out.

sarge, can I ask for one thing different to the GR thread? When you update the thread title to reflect the latest news, keep the "Movie News" bit at the start of the title, if there's space. On GR, I'd go looking for the thread, and not find it at first glance, because the title had changed completely.

Punisher badness....

It's just a rumor right now, but Comicbookmovie.com is reporting that Lionsgate is thinking about turning Punisher: War Zone into a pG-13 flick, based on the success of The Dark Knight and other PG-13 flicks.
