Thanks to The Playlist, the outlet found an interview in which Thompson said she recently marched up with a couple of other women who work in Marvel and asked Kevin Feige: “How about a movie with some female superheroes? Like all of them?”

In a report from Variety, Hasbro is making moves to become the next Marvel by hiring Greg Mooradian to oversee the company’s film division now dubbed Allspark Pictures. As president of Allspark, Mooradian will oversee film and television production starting in January, with sources for Variety saying the company is trying to attract funding in the nine-figure range to properly develop its own slate of films in house – films based on their line of toys and games that include Mr. Potato Head, Monopoly, and My Little Pony.

BUY OR SELL

Focus Features has released a new trailer for Joe Wright’s historical drama Darkest Hour. Scripted by The Theory of Everything’s Anthony McCarten, the film stars an unrecognizable Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill and begins on the eve of World War II, chronicling Churchill’s difficult push to get England to stand up to Nazi Germany and enter the war rather than negotiate a treaty.

A new international trailer for Thor: Ragnarok has been released online showcasing some new footage specifically geared to the Chinese market overseas.

Lionsgate Premiere has released the first trailer for Gotti starring John Travolta. Directed by Kevin Connelly, the film spans three decades and follows the rise and fall of crime boss John Gotti as he tried to build the Gambino Crime Family both during and between his stints in prison.

In a new interview with Billboard, Danny Elfman offered up some new details from his Justice League score, including the fact that he’s going back to some iconic DC character themes from previous films and implementing them in new ways – including using John Williams’ iconic Superman theme, but spun in a different way.

Less than a week after the announcement that JJ Abrams would be stepping in to direct Star Wars Episode 9, a group of Star Wars fans have started a Change.org petition to have him removed from his newly-appointed position as director.

Blumhouse Productions announced Friday that Jamie Lee Curtis has signed on to appear in the new Halloween reboot/sequel as her original character Laurie Strode, with the production house also confirming a release date of October 19, 2018; forty years after the premiere of the original film. John Carpenter returns as Executive Producer and will also score the film, with Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green behind the camera; with a script by Gordon Green and Eastbound & Down star Danny McBride.

Sony Pictures has debuted a brand-new TV spot for Flatliners, and it features the return of Kiefer Sutherland’s Nelson Wright from the original 1990 movie. In Flatliners, five medical students hope to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond by stopping their hearts, each triggering a near-death experience.

A new trailer has been released for the Jackie Chan starrer The Foreigner. Directed by Casino Royale’s Martin Campbell, the film sees the 63 year old Chan playing Quan, a humble London businessman whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when his teenage daughter dies in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. The film also stars Pierce Brosnan and opens in theatres on October 13th.

IT Scores Biggest Horror Opening Ever – Movie Talk

On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (Monday September 11th, 2017) Mark Ellis, Perri Nemiroff, Jon Schnepp, John Rocha, Ashley Mova, and Wendy Lee discuss the following:

1) IT has largest opening weekend for horror movie all time; box office report

2) KKK Thriller ‘Black Klansman’ in the works from Spike Lee and Jordan Peele

3) The Purge 4 gets a new title; revealed to be a prequel set during first purge

4) First teaser trailer and poster released for Fifty Shades Freed

5) New TV spot revealed for Thor: Ragnarok

6) Mail Bag

7) Live Twitter

The box office slump is over as IT debuted in theatres this weekend to record breaking numbers, claiming the largest opening for an R-rated horror film ever as well as the largest opening weekend for a horror film of any MPAA rating. IT easily took the No 1 spot, delivering an estimated $117 million and shattering expectations. IT is also the second largest opening for an R rated feature, just behind Deadpool’s $132.4 million opening last February and is already the fifth highest grossing R-rated horror film of all-time after just three days in release.

THR is reporting that Denzel Washington’s son John David Washington is joining director Spike Lee and Get Out director/producer Jordan Peele in a new movie entitled Black Klansman. The movie will tell the true story of Ron Stallworth, a detective in Colorado Springs, Colorado, who in 1978 answered an ad in the local newspaper seeking new Klan members. Stallworth, who is black, was able to gather intelligence by pretending to be a white supremacist on the phone and sent a white fellow officer in his place for any in-person meetings. During his undercover work, Stallworth managed to sabotage several cross-burnings and other activities of the notorious hate group.

BUY OR SELL

New details and a title have been announced for the fourth chapter in the Purge horror series. In an interview with Vulture, franchise creator James DeMonaco revealed the title will be The Purge: The Island, with the setting and concept taking place during the very first Purge, and centering on an experimental test on Staten Island.

Universal Pictures released the first teaser trailer and poster for Fifty Shades Freed, the third movie in the Fifty Shades franchise. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, and expands upon the events from the 2015 and 2017 blockbuster films that have grossed almost $950 million worldwide.

Marvel unveiled a new TV spot for Thor: Ragnarok giving fans even more reason to look forward to the third entry in the Thor franchise. Though there’s only a couple snippets of new footage, the spot reinforces something special is coming from director Taika Waititi’s take on the God of Thunder.

Jerry Bruckheimer has officially given Josh Macuga an early wedding present. Just when it appeared the long in development sequel in the Bad Boys franchise with Bad Boys for Life was dead in the water, super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed to Yahoo Movies that another writer has come on board the project that he hopes will breathe new life in the project.

OPENING THIS WEEK

Deadline reports that Paramount Pictures has acquired the screen rights to Dracul, the first prequel novel authorized by the estate of Bram Stoker, to be developed as a potential directing vehicle down the line for IT helmer Andy Muschietti. Written by Dacre Stoker and J.D. Barker, the story is set in 1868, where a 21-year old Bram Stoker meets with an unholy evil that he traps in an ancient tower all the while documenting the events that will later become the basis for his story.

The film takes place in 1892 and stars Christian Bale as a legendary Army Captain who reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back home to the tribal lands.

Suicide Squad 2 Delayed

On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (Thursday August 31st, 2017) Mark Ellis, John Rocha, Perri Nemiroff, Dennis Tzeng, Natasha Martinez and Wendy Lee discuss the following:

1) Suicide Squad 2 unlikely to start shooting until Fall 2018

2) Judge allows $900 million ‘Conjuring’ lawsuit against Warner Bros.

3) Opening this week

4) All female Lord of the Flies adaptation in the works at Warner Bros.

5) First trailer released for ‘You Were Never Really Here’ starring Joaquin Phoenix

6) Mail Bag

7) Live Twitter Questions

Despite reports that Suicide Squad 2 is being fast-tracked by Warner Bros., Variety’s Justin Kroll is now saying we can probably forget about seeing the second chapter of the Skwad anytime until possibly 2019. Kroll revealed on Twitter that the movie is unlikely to go into production until Fall 2018 because Will Smith has a busy schedule shooting Disney and Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin reboot along with the upcoming sci-fi movie Gemini Man. Initial reports had Mel Gibson possibly interested in directing, with The Shallows helmer Jaume Collet-Serra then revealed to be the front-runner before ultimately passing on the project.

In a report from THR, the legal woes Warner Bros. is having over its billion dollar Conjuring franchise looks to be heating up. WB failed in its effort to dismiss the $900 million dollar lawsuit brought by Gerald Brittle, author of the Warren’s The Demonologist. The bid was rejected by a Virginia judge and a trial is now tentatively scheduled for April 16th. In his lawsuit, Brittle alleges he had an agreement with the Warrens that prohibited them from a motion picture deal without his consent – with WB and New Line allegedly knowing about it all.

OPENING THIS WEEK

BUY OR SELL

According to Deadline, Scott McGehee & David Siegel have made a deal at Warner Bros to write and direct a new version of Lord Of The Flies, based on the novel by William Golding. Though the duo are planning a faithful adaptation, the plan does involve one major twist – instead an all boys adaptation it will be all girls. There have been two adaptations in the past, in which young students are stranded on a remote island and become a savage social order.

An international trailer for Lynne Ramsay’s thriller You Were Never Really Here has been released online, via The Playlist. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as Joe, an ex-soldier/ex-FBI agent tasked with rescuing a politician’s teenage daughter from a brothel. The film had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year to positive reviews, where it picked up Best Actor for Phoenix and tied for Best Screenplay with The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

Martin Scorsese Producing Joker Origin Story

On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (Wednesday August 23rd, 2017) Mark Ellis, Perri Nemiroff, Kristian Harloff, John Rocha, Ashley Mova and Wendy Lee discuss the following:

1) Joker origin story movie in the works with director Todd Phillips; may not star Jared Leto

2) Michael Kenneth Williams’ Role Cut From ‘Star Wars’ Han Solo

3) Studios Could Be Moving Towards a $30 Premium VOD Service Early Next Year

4) Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, and Joe Mazzello join Rami Malek in Bryan Singer’s Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

5) First trailer release for Netflix’s ‘Little Evil’

6) Mail Bag

7) Live Twitter Questions

Deadline shocked DC fans yesterday when they reported that Warner Bros and DC would be developing a new banner of DC films unconnected to their current DCEU; with the first project reportedly a Joker origin story set in the 80’s on the gritty streets of Gotham City. The Hangover’s Todd Phillips is currently in talks to direct with Martin Scorsese himself on as a producer. Deadline states that WB’s intention is to make a grounded, hard-boiled crime film that isn’t meant to feel like a DC movie, and to make it more akin to one of Scorsese’s films from that era, like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull or The King Of Comedy.

Deadline reports that Michael Kenneth Williams is no longer a part of the new Star Wars stand-alone Han Solo movie. The trade states that due in part to the massive reshoots happening under director Ron Howard, the revamped production schedule conflicted with Williams commitment to other projects.

BUY OR SELL

THR is reporting that Comcast and Amazon are joining Apple in developing a delivery system for premium Video on Demand titles that could be available for home viewing 30 days after debuting in theaters. This new premium service could be introduced in the first two months of 2018, with THR’s report saying movie fans could likely pay $30 dollars to rent a movie. Initial reports suggested that some studios considered making movies available for $50 dollars, 17 days after initial release, but the modest $30 price point is said to be “soothing the frayed nerves of theatres owners.”

Variety reports that Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, and Joe Mazzello have been cast opposite Rami Malek in the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody directed by Bryan Singer. Production on the film will begin this fall, with Singer directing from a script by Justin Haythe. Hardy will play drummer Roger Taylor; Lee will portray lead guitarist Brian May and Mazzello will take on the role of bass guitarist John Deacon.

Netflix has unveiled the very first trailer for the upcoming original film Little Evil. Written and directed by Tucker and Dale vs Evil filmmaker Eli Craig, the horror comedy stars Adam Scott as a guy who marries the woman of his dreams, played by Evangeline Lilly, only to find out that his new stepson is actually the antichrist.

1) Deadpool 2 Cable images tease time travel element

2) Wonder Woman crosses $800 million to become highest grossing superhero origin story movie all time

3) Opening this Week

4) ‘Stranger Things’ Helmer Rebecca Thomas to Direct Sci-Fi ‘Intelligent Life

5) Hellboy casts Ed Skrein; reboot won’t have origin story; David Harbour compares it to Raiders of the Lost Ark

6) Mail Bag

7) Live Twitter Questions

New images of Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2 have appeared online thanks to the Twitter feed Universo X-Men. The all new looks have given fans something to talk about, mostly about the possible time travel plotline the images seem to introduce. Some of the commentators believe that the new looks are coming before the visual effects will be added, mostly for Cable’s cybernetic eye – while other fans believe the images offer up a clue to a time travel element that accompanies Cable’s backstory.

Wonder Woman has hit another record for the DCEU. The movie crossed $800 million worldwide and is now the second biggest movie of the year – behind only Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The Patty Jenkins-directed film has surpassed every expectation, both critically and commercially, passing $400 million at the domestic box office (the only summer movie to do so. And now, thanks to Box Office Mojo, that number puts Wonder Woman just past Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man film, making Wonder Woman the highest-grossing superhero origin story ever released.

OPENING THIS WEEK

Thomas will also do some additional writing on the script, which was originally penned by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.

THR is reporting that Deadpool villain Ed Skrein is in negotiations to join the cast of Lionsgate’s Hellboy reboot. Skrein will play Major Ben Daimio, a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense who can turn into a jaguar when angered or in pain. Skrein joins Ian McShane as Hellboy’s adoptive father, with Milla Jovovich playing the villainess. Stranger Things’ David Harbour was the first to join the reboot as Hellboy, with the actor recently dropping some info about the story.
