Okay, so technically it's a thriller but it's centered around WWI espionage. That makes it a war movie in my book.
In case you haven't heard, Sony is planning on rebooting 'Men In Black.' I know, I know, another reboot, right? Normally I would have seen the word reboot and kept scrolling, but this time Tessa Thompson's name was attached to it, so I stopped to read. Turns out Chris Hemsworth will be in it as well. F. Gary Gray will be directing and the guys who wrote 'Iron Man' will be doing the screen writing. It is supposed to be released in June of next year.
I feel like Keanu Reeves needs his own version of the Bat Signal. Save us, Keanu. We weren't excellent to each other. We fucked up. Help.
So apparently moviegoers outside the U.S., Canada and China are upset that Paramount sold the international rights for 'Annihilation' to Netflix. I guess they're mad that they won't get a chance to experience the movie in an actual theater, the way it was meant to be seen. However, when audiences were given a chance to see the movie in an actual theater (here in the U.S.), hardly anyone showed up. Not cool. Not good business either. Especially when their box office track record includes: 'mother!,' Downsizing,' and 'Silence.'
'Silence' put me in a coma but that's neither here nor there. What does matter is that it costs roughly $1,300 to take 4 to 5 people to the movies these days, so I understand people not going full movie theater for just any movie that comes out.
I suppose the point is that if you want people to make beautiful theatrical releases, you have to get your butt to a movie theater and put your money where your mouth is. Turns out everything's a two-way street. Typical.
Oh. Okay, that's fine. I mean, I was excited to see that one but whatever. Has anyone called Patty Jenkins and begged?
If you remember her performance in 'mother!' you'll understand how great this could be. She was obnoxious and creepy but also kind of vacant and robotic. She was probably a Cylon.
Whedon also said he “could not crack the code” on what 'Batgirl' should be about. Maybe it's for the best. We shall see, hopefully.
Dafoe plays an aging lighthouse keeper and the movie is described as a fantasy horror. It's scheduled to begin shooting this Spring.
Don't worry, none of that stuff in the title made much sense to me either but it's all true. There will be a feature-length sequel to the Kung Fury short that came out not too long ago. As if that weren't enough to perk you up, it turns out David Hasselhoff is coming back to reprise his role from the original. To top it all off, there will be some serious Fassbender in the mix. I for one cannot wait.
