    There are plenty of movie news which are worth mentioning without creating separate threads. Hope this thread is useful.

    Great first poster of Arnold's Last Stand!

    thelaststandposter.jpg

    Just tell me, isn't this the best come back leading role for Arnold? The synopsis sounds like we're back in the good old days.

    Schwarzenegger stars as Sheriff Owens, a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately accepts responsibility for one of the most daring face offs in cinema history.

    Joseph Kosinski's (Tron Legacy) new movie. With a surprising budget of $100 million.

    oblivion-comic-book-cover.jpg

    Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.
    Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.
    Oblivion was shot in stunning digital 4K resolution on location across the United States and Iceland.

    Is Carl Rinsch still directing 47 Ronin?

    Another big budget movie running into troubles because of the inexperienced new director. Universal has balls for entrusting this $175 million project to a newcomer. Too bad, I was really waiting for this one.

    From JoBlo:
    A ton of concept art for Tom Cruise's Oblivion; first trailer to premiere in front of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!
    Quote Originally Posted by Paul Shirey

Kosinski, who last directed TRON: LEGACY, has insinuated it would be more of a character piece, and that may be true, but it still takes place on a massive scale judging by these images. From the barren, ravaged surface of Earth to the skies and to the stars, it seems that this will be a space-and-time spanning sci-fi extravaganza. I have no problem with that, either.

    OBLIVION is based on a graphic novel idea by Kosinski and Arvid Nelson, with a script by Kosinski, William Monahan, Karl Gajdusek, and Michael Arndt (the upcoming STAR WARS VII).

    ^ Can't wait for this one.

    So if you watch The Hobbit in IMAX you'll be getting:

    - 9 minute footage from Star Trek: Into Darknes
    - Man of Steel trailer
    - Pacific Rim trailer
    - Oblivion trailer
    - After Earth trailer (not confirmed)

    Dayum! Ok, I'll go see it.

    Well, it's gonna be pretty hard to pick a winner as the Best Picture, Drama. Argo was very good. Haven't seen the others yet, but what I've heard, Life of Pi is amazing and I think I read on IMDB last week that Zero Dark Thirty has already won a best picture award on some other award show.
    Quentin won't win anything with Django, cause Hollywood probably thinks that he has just ripped off some old cowboy movies and hasn't done anything original...

    From THR:
    'Walking Dead' Producer Gale Anne Hurd Developing 'Gaiking' Live-Action Feature
    Hurd's Valhalla is teaming up with Toei Animation and All Nippon Entertainment Works.
    Quote Originally Posted by Borys Kit

    No writer is on board but Hurd will produce the project along with Toei’s Yoshi Ikezawa and Joseph Chou.

    Sandy Climan, Tim Kwok and Kozo Morishita of Toei Animation are executive producing.

    Valhalla’s director of development, Kris Henigman, will oversee development as will Annmarie Bailey of ANEW.

    Gaiking was a short-lived Japanese animated series that ran in the mid-1970s. It became part of the toyline Shogun Warriors, popular in America in the late 1970s, and repurposed as cartoon series Force Five in the early 1980s.

    The story tells of an alien invasion and how Earth creates giant piloted robots, known as mechas, to defend itself. The main character is a former baseball star who is recruited to pilot the biggest of the mechas.

    Stories of mechas have been popular in Japan for decades. Their popularity will be getting a global and American test next year with the release of Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro’s $200 million tentpole which combines mechas vs. giant monsters.

    Hurd is one of the executive producers behind The Walking Dead and was behind the upcoming Sundance Premiere film, Very Good Girls. She is also developing the action thriller The Nameless with Route One.

    Toei is the largest animation house in Japan and behind such series as Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon.

    "Gaiking," which debuted in Japan in the mid 1970s, is centered on on young man recruited to serve as the lead pilot of a super robot to fend off an alien race intent on taking over Earth.

    Hurd will be lead producer and Yoshi Ikezawa of Toei Animation and Joseph Chou will also produce. Toei, the largest animation production company in Japan, will co-produce; exec producers include ANEW CEO Sandy Climan, Tim Kwok and Kozo Morishita of Toei.

    Hurd prioduced the first two "Terminator" movies, "Aliens" and "The Incredible Hulk" and exec produced upcoming Sundance title "Very Good Girls."

    It's the first development deal for ANEW, which has been set up to partnering with Japanese rights holders to develop English language movies and TV via an initial capitalization of $80 million from the Innovation Network Corporation of Japan.

    Kris Henigman of Valhalla will oversee development with ANEW's Annmarie Bailey.

This also represents the first development deal for All Nippon Entertainment Works, a public-private partnership designed to help the country’s entertainment producers expand across the globe. They’re teaming up with Valhalla Entertainment (which developed and produces AMC’s The Walking Dead) which will develop and co-produce the film derived from a series about a young man who pilots a super-robot — which in this case must save the world from alien invaders. “Gaiking has long been one of the most beloved giant robot animation franchises with a global fan base,” says Toei Animation’s Yoshi Ikezawa. The company wants the feature film “to be the first of many more to come from Toei’s large stable” of properties. There’s no release date yet. The backers plan to target the fanboy and fangirl audience that turned out for hits such as Marvel’s The Avengers and Paramount’s Transformers. Gaiking “marks a huge step forward in adapting one of the best Japanese [intellectual properties] for a global audience,” Valhalla CEO Gale Anne Hurd says. All Nippon Entertainment Works CEO Sandy Climan helped to engineer the collaboration. His company has an initial capitalization of $80M and a mandate, as he puts it, “to bring the highest quality Japanese stories to a global audience in partnership with world-class producers.” Hurd will be lead producer for Gaiking. Ikezawa and Joseph Chou, also with Toei, will be producers. Climan, Tim Kwok, and Kozo Morishita of Toei are executive producing.

    Producer Frank Marshall Talks JURASSIC PARK 4; Says They Hope to Have Film in Theaters in 2 Years

    Universal Sets Date For ‘Jurassic Park 4′
    Universal Pictures has set a release date for Jurassic Park 4, which will be shot in 3D and come out June 13, 2014. Steven Spielberg is returning to produce the next installment of the franchise, the last of which came out in July 2001. This comes after the studio has made plans to rerelease the original Jurassic Park in a remastered 3D version in April. Spielberg, whose latest film Lincoln was just nominated for 12 Oscars, this week put his sci-fi pic Robopocalypse on hold; he was scheduled to direct that this spring, but had a new take on the project and decided to retool. There had been speculation that Spielberg would tackle the widely rumored Moses epic Gods And Kings, but this project appears to be officially on his front burner.
    Universal's 'Jurassic Park 4' to Hit Theaters in June 2014
    Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall are returning to produce the long-awaited next installment in the franchise, although no director or cast is yet attached. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) are writing the script.
    Will J.J. Abrams Direct The New 'Jurassic Park' Film?
    Quote Originally Posted by Mark Hughes

    I’ll start the speculation rolling by suggesting J.J. Abrams might be high on Spielberg’s list of choices to helm the film. Abrams has obviously more than proven himself capable of handling a big effects-and-action driven franchise, and he has a working relationship with Spielberg. Abrams’ style also reflects influences from Spielberg, of course, so that would lend the film some added sense of continuity with some previous entries in the series as well.

    Word of the new 3D dinosaur flick has sent the Internet into a frenzy this afternoon, and it’ll only get more intense in the coming days and weeks. A June 2014 release date is a pretty tight schedule to meet, so the studio will have to really fast-track the production, and that means we should hear additional news pretty soon.

    Rupert Wyatt
    is the other name that comes instantly to mind to possibly fill the director’s chair. His work on Rise of the Planet of the Apes was phenomenal and demonstrated a great ability to balance visual effects action with strong story and character development.

    I’m sure more names will be tossed around as the media debates which filmmaker will get the job, but these two should be high on any short-list of nominees.

    ^ It's about time.

    J.J. Abrams sounds like the perfect choice. He could very well fit the project between Star Trek 2 and 3 as he did with Super 8.

    Godzilla & Jurassic Park movie in one year is pretty cool.

    Warner Bros. has quietly set up "The Odyssey," and the early hope is that Pitt will star and Miller will direct, with Pitt’s Plan B producing.Pitt played Achilles in the Wolfgang Petersen-directed "Troy," a global blockbuster that David Benioff adapted from "The Iliad."

    Both Homer poems dealt with the Trojan War; "The Odyssey" focused on the exploits of Odysseus, who hatched the idea to build the Trojan Horse. "The Odyssey" deals with his long journey home after he declines to become a god.

    Pitt will next be seen in the David Fincher-directed "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and the Terrence Malick-directed "Tree of Life." He just began shooting the Quentin Tarantino-directed "Inglourious Basterds."
    Warner Bros Moves Forward With Space-Bound ‘The Odyssey’
    Quote Originally Posted by MIKE FLEMING JR

The studio has just hired James DiLapo to write the futuristic re-imagining of the Greek epic. Warner Bros has also put in place a blind writing deal behind the project to keep him in the studio fold.

    The Odyssey is Homer’s followup to The Illiad, which the studio turned into the Wolfgang Petersen-directed Troy, which starred Brad Pitt as Achilles. The Odyssey tracks the struggle of Odysseus to return from those wars, as suitors line up to marry his wife, and sponge off his estate as they wait for her to make a decision. Terry Dougas of 1821 Pictures hatched the idea of setting the tale in space and he and cohort Paris Kasidokostas Latsis brought the idea to the studio. Brad Pitt was once attached to this one as well, but is no longer. The 1821 duo–who are separately producing Jane Got A Gun which stars Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender and Joel Edgerton–will produce along with David Heyman, with Heyday’s Jeff Clifford also involved in a producing capacity. The project got kickstarted with the pitch by DiLapo. The studio now sees it as a potential franchise and it’s being steered by Greg Silverman and Courtenay Valenti and Racheline Benveniste.

    Since DiLapo just graduated from NYU last summer, it’s conceivable that The Odyssey is fresh in his head, from term papers. The scribe is pretty accomplished for one so young. He won the Nicholl Fellowship in the fall for his first script, Devils At Play. That script made the 2012 Black List. It’s set in 1937 Soviet Union, and is a classic paranoid thriller about a worker of The People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs who finds a list of traitors which he thinks is going to be his way out. He is repped by Verve and Kaplan Perrone.

A discovery made days before her death causes Max to believe his marriage was a lie. He embarks on an exploration of his own past that brings him face to face with a menagerie of characters from a bygone era. Noah is making his directing debut.

    While he has done stage work, the 86-year-old Lewis hasn’t done much in the way of films in a long time. Before Funny Bones his last big starring role came in 1983′s Martin Scorsese-directed The King Of Comedy, opposite Robert De Niro.

    Lewis stars with Claire Bloom, Kevin Pollak, Argo‘s Kerry Bishe and Mort Sahl. It’s a reunion for Sahl and Lewis, as Sahl appeared on Lewis’ 1963 comedy variety series. The project was trotted out several Cannes Film Festivals ago, but then languished. Since then, Noah has gone on to partner with Elijah Wood and Josh C. Waller in The Woodshed, an indy production company with a bent towards genre films.

    The film, which will shoot in Los Angeles, is produced by Mosaic Media Group’s Lawrence Inglee and Lightstream Pictures’ Garrett Kelleher.

    Life of Pi is the biggest winner of this year's VES awards - the most important awards for technical achievements. It's a big surprise because the movie took the award "Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture" over movies like Avengers, Prometheus and The Hobbit.

    And...we have the first major flop of 2013 - http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...0,682372.story


    Made for $200 million and released in March. Never a good thing.

    Bryan Singer's "big budget" career is in serious trouble. First "Superman Returns", now this. "Valkyrie" was also kinda mellow, domestically. If he was a relatively new director he would've been in Director's Jail for sure. Hollywood is brutal when it comes to huge, expensive box office bombs.

    Singer should be (very) grateful that he has the "X-Men" franchise.

    Bryan Singer's "big budget" career is in serious trouble. First "Superman Returns", now this. "Valkyrie" was also kinda mellow, domestically. If he was a relatively new director he would've been in Director's Jail for sure. Hollywood is brutal when it comes to huge, expensive box office bombs.

    Singer should be (very) grateful that he has the "X-Men" franchise.
    Damn these journalists. They want box office facts?

    The Usual Suspects - $24 million - 4 times over it's budget. (Singer's best)
    X-Men - $300 million - 4 times over it's budget.
    X-Men 2 - $400 million - 4 times over it's budget. (best X-Men movie ever)
    Superman Returns - $400 million - almost 2 times over it's budget. (many people hate this one but I love it)
    Valkyrie - $200 million - almost 3 times over it's budget.
    Jack the Giant Slayer made almost 1/5 of it's budget ($40 million) in it's first weekend. Surely the movie won't be a box office hit but everyone knew that way before the premiere. No matter who directed this type of story it is doomed.

    "Singer should be (very) grateful that he has the "X-Men" franchise." Actually it's the other way around - X-Men should be grateful that they have Singer. We all remember what Brett Ratner did!
    Can't wait to see what Bryan will do with the new one.
