Hardy might be intimidating but I think not being part of the MCU might hurt the film.
As long as it turns out it's a Horror film, it could work out fine. I just hope Rueben Fleischer has a solid script to work with like Zombieland.
Oh and a new synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War.
I hate that Sony got sneaky with Marvel on their deal because thanks to this, we may see less of Spidey's rogues in the MCU.
I don't think it's Sony, but rather Avi Arad who should be given credit (or blame, depending on your point of view) for pushing a Venom movie into development. He's been trying to get it made for over a decade and it's pretty much his baby. They've scheduled the film's start of production for autumn, but we'll see if that actually happens. And we'll see what effect Spider-Man Homecoming's box-office results and fan reception has on any future Spider-Man films moving forward.
Sorry for the double post, but I've got the same news that I imagine won't please the Walker Brothers: Ol Parker will direct a sequel to Mamma Mia, which Universal has scheduled for July 20, 2018.
Please keep Pierce Brosnan as far away as possible from a microphone this time.
I think they just got heart attacks.
Shit, I just realized Hardy jumped from the DC films, straight into the Marvel films films thingy!
The internet is going to implode with this realization!
Brosnan sounded like someone who was intoxicated yet just went ahead trying to sing anyway.
Well at one point, he was going to be Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad, thankfully dodged that bullet.
...yeah 'cause musical sequels always work out. Just ask Annie Warbucks or Bring Back Birdie.
Can you name one that worked though?
Not Stayin' Alive.
Falsettoland, actually (one-act sequel to March of the Falsettos that is arguably better than the original). Other than that it's a ghetto.
As much as I can't stand Mamma Mia, I can understand why they greenlight a sequel as the first one did make over $600 million worldwide, with a good chunk of that coming from the UK. Yeah, I don't know why the British loved that movie, either.
The Shining coming to this year's Halloween Horror Nights
Teasers for the film adaptation of Neil Gaiman's How To Talk To Girls At Parties.
Resident Evil gets the reboot treatment.
If they're doing this, make it a clean slate. Make it more of a Horror film and hire either George Romero or Yeon Sang-ho, the dude who directed to Train To Busan.
Now Guardians of the Galaxy 2 won't make $3 billion. Nobody wanted to see Alien.
Then why did it top the box office?
This is why I don't post here anymore.
Reading part of his original script does not really make me keen on the idea of Romero doing it.
But one thing I like to require: don't make another character like Alice.
Considering the utterly mindnumbingly bad the additions to the Alien mythology I'm kind of glad it's underperforming.
It only beat Guardians Vol 2 by less than $1 Million, not exactly a big feat.
btw I'm more of a Predator fan.
Also I still want to see Guardians 2 again, but I really do have admiration for the Alien Franchise despite not being familiar with it past the AvP movies and 2000 PC game (aka Starcraft FPS).
In fairness, that was the first draft. Though I do know his couple of zombie films haven't exactly earned much praise lately I admit.
Question: Would you want it to be more like RE1 or RE2? I guess you could include Code Veronica, but not any of the action games.
RE2 but if it has a low budget then the first game probably.
Considering the budget of the film and how other Alien films have performed, I think these numbers are about par for the series. I think Prometheus will always remain the box-office high for the franchise, but since they chopped $30 or so million off the budget, Alien: Covenant doesn't have to reach those same grosses. As one of Fox's biggest franchises, I don't think they will ever stop making them. If they even resorted to having them fight Predators at one point, though that admittedly started years before in comic books, and cloning Ripley just so Sigourney Weaver could come back, they will always figure out a way to prolong it.
I would like to see the characters meet aliens other than Xenomorphs, but I know that's a tall order.
Universal's Rebooted Classic Monsters Series has now been given an official name...
...The next movie in the lineup will be 'Bride of Frankenstein' in 2019 with Bill Condon Directing and Javier Bardem will play the Monster himself.
Tom Holland signed on to star in an Uncharted movie set several years before Drake's Fortune.
And Johnny Depp will be playing the Invisible Man... yeah nothing creepy can be read into that at all. *sigh*
I'm down with The Mummy and Bride of Frankenstein...but why include Johnny Depp for such a universe? ARGH.
Also, odd they haven't announced who's playing the Bride of Frankenstein herself.
Separate names with a comma.
