Even with Warner Brothers/DC’s ‘Man of Steel‘ set to open this weekend, and even with the billion dollar grosses of the last two Batman films, there’s no question that Marvel is the studio for superhero movies. To extend their legacy, they’ve set release dates for two currently untitled projects set to start the summer seasons in 2016 and 2017.
Until recently, the video game character Lara Croft was as well known for her bust as she was for any tomb raiding she took part in. And though her video game franchise 'Tomb Raider' was very popular and spawned two movie spin-offs, the creators were aware that it might be time to not make her such a fetish object for their latest game. That thought process is also being applied to the new movie version of 'Tomb Raider,' as the producers have hired Marti Noxon to work on the script.
Though most efforts to transfer video games into feature-length films have been a bust, it's no surprise that Ubisoft is looking to bring their most popular titles to the big screen. The company already has 'Assassin's Creed,' 'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon,' and 'Splinter Cell' in the works, but they're now working on 'Far Cry,' 'Rabbids' and 'Watch Dogs' as well.
If you've watched enough trailers, you've probably noticed that the voice-over and text in trailers is usually innocuous babble meant to get audiences excited about an upcoming film. And though voice-overs for trailers have fallen out of fashion, writer/director/star Lake Bell takes on the absurdity of that universe in her directorial debut 'In a World...'
'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' was rumored to have a troubled post-production, which made director Jon M. Chu (who at that point was best known for directing 'Step Up' sequels and a Justin Bieber documentary) look out of his depth. The film turned out to be a huge success, so it's not surprising to hear Chu's the current frontrunner for directing duties on 'G.I. Joe 3.'
This weekend 'The Purge' made $34 million at the box office. As the film had a production budget of $3 million, that means the film started to turn a profit less than a day after it was released. So it's no surprise that they're moving forward with a sequel.
The film adaptation of 'Need for Speed,' which is based on the very successful Electronic Arts video game franchise, is finally in front of cameras and will be hitting theaters next year. To hype the film, they've given a first peak behind the scenes at some of the stuntwork in the film.
