Spinning Headlines – Week 9: Baywatch, Ghostbusters, Disney/Marvel, Shane Black, Star Wars, David Ayer, Game of Thrones…

Morning/afternoon – it’s friday and it’s time to go through the weeks news-offerings. As always, take a look at our “News”-section for daily updates. This time we’ve got everything from Golden Raspberry & Oscar-winners to that trailer to the upcoming “Ghostbusters”-reboot. And give your respects to actor George Kennedy who passed away this week.

Regarding that “Ghostbusters“-trailer, btw; seems that there’s a worldwide confusion now over the fact that is it a remake or a sequel? Mostly due to the “30 years ago…” intro on it.

30years

Just to clear up all that, HERE is an analysis of the trailer that pretty much clears it: it is a REBOOT. Director Paul Feig’s words:

“Sony marketing put together a ton of trailers. Really great job, but we kept testing them because I wanted to see what real people think. We can sit around all day and think we know what we want, but [you need to] find out what people want. And if we didn’t acknowledge those [original] movies existed, it was very confusing to people — and I think might have also made us seem a little not reverant to what we owe a great debt to. But it was tough, because we went through a million different wordings. I said it can’t play as a sequel, because I can’t support that, so what’s the way to pass the torch? And Ivan [Reitman, who directed the original], when he saw the trailer, he was really happy about it.”

THE MOST IMPORTANT NEWS OF THE WEEK

Boom. The circle is now complete, as the Legendary Entertainer David Hasselhoff joins the Dwayne Johnson-led big screen-version of “Baywatch“. As Johnson writes on his Facebook post:

“I WAS BORN READY!” Pleasure to officially welcome the original ‪#‎BAYWATCH‬ gangsta himself David Hasselhoff to our movie! #BAYWATCH is the most successful TV show of all time and from the day we announced we were turning it into a movie, “The Hoff” has been our greatest supporter. Especially once he knew our RATED R movie was going to be a combination of AVENGERS meets ANCHORMAN….

Hoff’s a cool dude who’s down to have fun and here’s the best part.. He’s been training his ass off and gotten in the best shape he’s been in in years! (cue slo-mo running and glistening chest hair.. wait, why the f*ck am I even thinking about Hoff’s chest hair!?) World get ready..

 

IN THE LEAST SURPRISING NEWS OF THE WEEK…

Don’t wait for Disney’s Marvel-division to follow up on the massive box-office success of “Deadpool” and start to make R-rated films. Disney’s CEO Bob Iger had a very short and clear statement regarding that subject, as reported by LA Times’ Daniel Miller on Twitter:

 

SHANE BLACK’S “THE NICE GUYS” SOUNDTRACK DETAILS

the-nice-guys-soundtrack-vinyl-covers-image-1

Seems that the upcoming, Shane Black-written/directed buddy comedy “The Nice Guys” does not pull punches on any department.

PIXAR RELEASES ANOTHER “FINDING DORY” TRAILER

Finding Dory” opens on June 17th.

 

 

DAVID AYER TO RETURN TO FAMILIAR GROUNDS AFTER “SUICIDE SQUAD”

tcR15QKn

Suicide Squad” is on the home stretch, I guess. Deep into post-production before the August 5th release date. Director David Ayer has already settled on a project that hell do next and it marks a return to a genre very familiar to him: the Cop movies. The film is called Bright. It’s written on spec by Max Landis, who also wrote last year’s brilliant “American Ultra“(which I finally caught a couple of weeks ago and I’ll wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone). No plot details have been given yet, other than a very vague “a contemporary cop thriller, but with fantastical elements”, which actually sounds interesting. All of Ayers’ previous crime/police movies have been pretty grounded in reality. Ayer will also reteam with his “Suicide Squad“-actor Will Smith on the project. Joel Edgerton is also attached. I’m sure we’ll get more details on this as time goes on.

 

ABOUT THAT “SUSPIRIA” REMAKE…

A remake of Dario Argento‘s classic horror film from 1977, “Suspiria” has been on the table and in/out of development hell for what seems like decades. The most recent attempt was by director David Gordon Green, but that fell quietly by the wayside. This week we got some murmurs around the horror community, as Alex Heller-Nicholas, a writer and “Suspiria“-expert(literally, she’s written a book about the movie) Tweeted the following:

So, the current director attached to the project, the Italian Luca Guadagnino(“I Am Love”) seems to have gotten the project off the ground, and has cast his frequent collaborator Tilda Swinton and well as Dakota Johnson, whot starred alongside Swinton in Guadagnino’s latest film “A Bigger Splash”.

Thoughts? Is a remake of “Suspiria” sacrelege? Or is the fact, that it’s at least in the hands of an Italian director, good news?

 

HBO SITS ON THE LID WITH “GAME OF THRONES”

got21

HBO announced this week, that it will NOT be relasing any early review-screeners of the first episodes of “Game of Thrones” sixth season. As stated by Programming President Michael Lombardo: “We’re not sending out press copies this year, anywhere in the world. There will be no copies for review. It’s painful for Dan and David [when leaks happen]. When you have press copies, inevitably friends ask, ‘Can I see your copy?’ There are things that happen. We talked about the upsides and downsides. Some of the press are fans who might be disappointed, but they’ll understand.”

Makes sense, as ALL screeners, workprints and whatnot will always end up in the internet, regardless. Always. Just ask Sly Stallone, Eli Roth, Quentin Tarantino or Gavin Hood (although I sense that if anyone ever asked Hood about “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, he’d probably punched the person’s lights out). And another thing would of course be to avoid letting plot spoilers out there before the season premiere on April 24th.

Although that did not stop Ian McShane, who probably said a little [HEAVY SPOILERS, PEOPLE!!!] too much this week.

 

ALEX PROYAS STRIKES BACK

Director Alex Proyas’ “Gods of Egypt” pretty much tanked at the box office last weekend and he was not too happy. He made the following post on Facebook targeting ALL critics:

 

LOGAN MIGHT FACE A FAMILIAR CHARACTER IN “WIII”

tumblr_lqxd7qaQSL1r2ywiko1_500

Just a complete rumor, but Liev Schreiber gave this answer to MTV News, regarding the third Wolverine movie and might he be interested in reprising his role of Victor Creed/Sabretooth from “X-Men Origins: Wolverine“: “We talked about it. I don’t know. He’s mentioned it to me. The Old Man Logan story — that’s appealing. That’s something that I can do. Old, being the operative word.

In his defense, Schreiber seemed to be just about the only one who seemed to have fun with that movie.

 

SPIT-TAKE OF THE WEEK

daily-show-spit-take

In the endless stream of reboots coming in, here’s another: Diego Luna is in talks to star opposite Ellen Page in the remake of the Joel Schumacher-directed 1990 sci-fi thriller “Flatliners”, which told the story of a group of medical students that try to prove there’s life after death by literally killing each other for a few minutes and before revival – hence the title “Flatliners“. Niels Arden Oplev, director of the original Swedish film adaptation of “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, will direct the Sony production from a screenplay by “Source Code” writer Ben Ripley.

I will say this: if somewhere in the future I’ll read about a remake of “Falling Down“, I’m gonna fucking scream.

 

That is all.

  • I_am_better

    Looks like more of the same, only slightly different

  • The original is overrated anyway. Good, but probably their worst, excluding those Cars films obviously.

  • I didn’t think Alex Proyas would be such a whiny bitch.

  • I_am_better

    I think filmmakers ranting in Social Media might be the new “hip” thing

  • I_am_better

    And then there was THIS guy, of course:

  • Dee
  • Dee

    Liev Schreiber was good, I’d like to see him come back. Too bad there is no way to bring back Danny Huston.

  • Dee

    Nobody needs R-rated Marvel movies. We need Lobo and Spawn.

  • Stalkeye

    Spawn had his chance and even the R-Rated Director’s cut was bad.

  • Stalkeye

    He’s excellent as Ray Donovan!

  • I_am_better

    Huston was da bomb in “30 Days of Night”, yo

  • Dee

    What about Lobo?

  • Stalkeye

    Well, at least he actually took on his biggest critics..

    Happy soon-to-be-tenth Anniversary!!

  • Stalkeye

    That might work. I still hope for a Justice league dark or Swamp Thing adaptation based on Alan Moore’s amazing run.

  • Dee

    He told no one he was a professional boxer.

  • I_am_better

    I wish he had beat up Knowles

  • Stalkeye

    And that’s what made it so goddamn funny. It’s one of the funniest pranks I have ever seen. X) Jeff Mira from AICN got the worst of the receiving end. We used to clown him back in the day after the match.

  • Stalkeye

    That would be considered cheating.

  • Dee

    A guy in a wheel chair?

  • Stalkeye

    Just roll him down a hill but then again, he’s punished enough by the media and his harshest critics, the Talkbackers!

  • I_am_better

    I don’t think that’s above Boll

  • Stalkeye

    HAHAHAHAH! Exactly!

  • Stalkeye

    I think Moon Knight, Killraven and a good Deathlok Movie would make for suitable R-rated films. But Gambit? No…..just no.

  • Dee
  • I_am_better

    Whoa. What the hell is that?

  • Stalkeye

    Proyas only saving graces are Dark City and The Crow. Gods of Egypt just cemented his career. And I forgot to mention how boring Crimson Peak was. GDT is losing his mojo, yo!

  • Dee

    “Eagle vs. Shark”. Same guys who made “What we do in the shadows”.

  • I_am_better

    Argh. Again I must search the web, I guess. No news of any kind of release of “shadows” here as of late. Fucking backwoods country

  • Toruk_Makto

    Fucking shareholders. If I didn’t own Sirius/XM stock I’d say kill em all.

    Oh..my Dear Alex…“descent into mediocrity”..Oh, so you did notice?
    For twenty bucks I’ll review you next movie before it is seen by anyone and give you my honest opinion so you avoid this mess. On second thought…make that $100 bucks..just in case it’s another stinker.

    Game of Thrones
    I stopped watching the show…but my technical curiosity is peaked.
    I would have thought they’d be offering streaming hyper-links linked to a media server on a VPN. Each stream is accessible within a small time window and a unique identifier assigned to the reviewer is used to log their access time and is also displayed on the corner of the streaming video. Seems simple enough to do with today’s tech. If they wanted to be cheap they could probably pull it off with Debian and Red5’s Flash Media Server.

  • Toruk_Makto

    Yeah, I never understood the desire for some to turn something that was never intended to be adult-oriented fare into adult-oriented fare.

  • CoolHandJuke

    Paaaaaffq

  • Kylo Ronin

    Okay, the spit take should have been reserved for Proyas completely whiny rant about why his racist movie sucked balls. Nobody calls Ebert a failed filmmaker and gets away with it, not if their movie sucks.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I know, right?

  • Kylo Ronin

    Yeah, he didn’t take on Seanbaby, who legit knew how to open a can of whoopass. So more like, he took on critics who he could bully.

  • Kylo Ronin

    Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is his masterpiece, dammit.

  • I_am_better

    It was my other choice.

    Kinda weird, as Ebert was such a big fan of Dark City. And even “Knowing”.

  • Kylo Ronin

    I skimmed through, thinking it would just be some BS till I reached that part. Blah, just rubbed me the wrong way.

  • KilliK

    ΤUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!

    Mark Hamill says Luke Skywalker could be gay
    http://www.businessinsider.com/mark-hamill-luke-skywalker-gay-2016-3

  • KilliK

    blame TDKR and Watchmen.

  • KilliK

    Lobo cant work, he is everything that SWJs hate. notice that even Deadpool who is tamer in comparison, was watered down in his movie adaptation.

  • KilliK

    he has greek origins, what did you expect.

  • KilliK

  • KilliK

  • I_am_better

    Really dig these rap battle videos

  • Toruk_Makto

    I think they should do it. Not only should they make him gay but give him a transgender lover.

    They should also go forward with the poe/finn deal. Maybe have a love triangle between those two and Rei, (Rey, Reye?..ah who gives a shit) the super Jedi chick. I like you super Jedi chick…but I also love the manly touch of Poe!

    With every fiber in my being I honestly and truly hope and pray they go in this direction because it is sure as fuck the Star Wars those Lucas-hating treacherous fuck-wits deserve.

  • Toruk_Makto

    Wasn’t Watchmen intended to be for mature readers?

  • Dee

    haha, never saw this before

  • Dee

    Unless it’s an R-rated Velma (Scooby Doo) standalone movie.

  • Toruk_Makto

    Smart girls are sexy.

  • KilliK

    I, Robot was good too. and GDT lost his mojo since Hellboy 2.

  • KilliK

    no idea.

  • KilliK

    regarding Sabretooth: Give Liv a secondary mutation and have him transform into a more feral, werewolf like creature like in the comics, when he gets enraged. his portrayal of the character is good but he too humanized in this version, he should look more animalistic.

  • KilliK

    I love when Mark says that JarJar is open to that idea. yeah, I am sure he is, Mark, but he ll have first to check with the focus groups to see if retconning your sexuality will help or hurt the marketing of the franchise, before he moves on with this idea.

    also, with this statement Mark indirectly confirmed that JarJar is still making the shots for the entire property and the direction it’s taking. so there goes the assumption that he was gonna only be involved in the first movie only.

    thanks, George, we lost Star Trek to JarJar, now because of your stupidity we lost Star Wars as well to him. thanks. enjoy your billions.

  • KilliK

    John Wick is training:

    Can’t wait for the Blu of TFA!

  • Toruk_Makto

    I don’t blame him. There’s only so many times you can be called a fat bastard by the people you are trying to entertain before you throw up your hands and say ‘fuck it’.

    As Alex Proyas has so laughably demonstrated for us…Directors have feelings too.

  • Toruk_Makto

    Good to see some folks still know how to put in work.

  • Zed

    That makes one of us.

  • Zed

    Then where did Rey come from? More midichlorians?

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    I’m loathe to endorse filmmakers sniping at critics like petulant children but, unlike others of his ilk, his gripes actually have some merit.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Boll is a troll director (see also: Lars Von Trier). He doesn’t believe half the shit he says but people fall for it anyway. He’s merely an inveterate attention seeker and a savvy self-promoter. Bears comparison with Donald Trump in many respects, actually.

    And heeeere’s more proof… “UweBollRaw”? LOL

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Well, why not? An eye for an eye, and all that. Let the blood flow! *cackle*

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    That was funny, but the most satisfying critic beat-down of all was from the guy who punched out Devin Faraci.

  • Bop

    I like the guy. Can’t wait to see Rampage 3.

  • Bop

    That shit never gets old. Uwe “The Critic Crusher” Boll.

  • Bop

    Kickback for life. Damn, that was a lot of fun writing on it and reading it.

  • Bop

    Jeff Mira probably thought he was a Mike Tyson. Problem was that Boll was the Mike Tyson.

  • Bop

    Shit. I need to find that somewhere.

  • Bop

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Lobo.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    “Not only should they make him gay but give him a transgender lover.”

    Why not? The new trilogy is already a bad comedy, so the least they can do is entertain us to the max.

    Give Luke a tranny alien lover; depict a gay relationship between Finn and Poe; have Rey spout the Bible According to Anita Sarkeesian at Resistance meetings; retcon Leia as a Caitlyn Jenner-type tranny (explaining the facial dysmorphia); bring Han back from the dead with magic blood: who gives a fuck? Bring on the laughs, and let’s watch previous supporters of TFA become aghast with horror once they realize the full extent of all that they’ve encouraged.

  • Bop

    I hate the fact that Marvel got the right to Taskmaster back. Taskmaster should be rated-R for sure.

  • Bop

    He is.

  • Bop

    Schreiber as Sabretooth again? Yes, please.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Here it is:

    1.40, lol. The fucker afterwards offered the excuse that his “contact lens fell out…” Riiightt…sure…>:)

  • Bop

    Dude, has an annoying voice. Looking at this stance he has never been in a fight before. Fucking idiot. Thanks for the service, Turd. LMAO.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    My pleasure.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    What can one do but laugh, really?

    Hmmm…the Luke who married a hot female Jedi (Mara Jade), had a crush on the local Tatooine babe (Camie), and was so boldly heterosexual that even the suspicion that Leia might be his sibling couldn’t dissuade him from salivating over her tasty body!? …yeah, that boy batted for the other team, all right.

    I suppose, according to Disney; the first two are no longer considered cannon (re-branded “Legends”); Disney’d also dearly love to wipe out the oedipal sister stuff if they could (just as they’ve tried to downplay the Jabba’s slave costume). But all that’s just an excuse. No one questioned Luke’s sexuality for nearly forty years, and for good reason.

    Nonetheless, I hope they follow through on this ludicrous notion and show a passionate kiss between Luke and his boytoy. It’ll be hilarious to witness the dismay of the fanboys.

  • Dee

    spot on

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Jar Jar is always found behind the curtain, working his “magic”. He’s the Wizard of Oz of crap movies.

  • KilliK

    Gay or not, I dont believe for once that Luke is gonna survive the new trilogy. I dont even think they ll have Rey to be his daughter. They dont give a fuck about Lucas’ iconic characters, what they stand for, their importance in the mythology, their personal stories. They only brought them back to serve the marketing of their franchise, and after they have done their job they discard them as used toilet paper. We ll never learn what will happen to Luke’s children and grandchildren as both Lucas and the old fans wanted. Luke is not gonna have children and Leia/Solo, well, they already took the short end of the stick.

    Instead, we ll get to see his face for two movies (and that’s not even sure), kick some ass for the fans to cheer on, and then bye, bye. No happy ending for Luke. After that, Disney will have their own, molded by the focus groups , family/SWJ friendly characters to advertise their movies for the rest of the time. They will cut any ties with Lucas’ vision and mythology, and only exploit and recycle his ideas with the Disney brand slapped on them. Lucas’ sold his soul to the dark side.

  • KilliK

    I hope some of the upcoming directors will have the guts to stand against him and like Ford said to Lucas: “you cant say or do this retarded shit in the movie, JJ you fucking moron.”
    but alas, this will never happen, they ll keep sucking HW’s new king.

  • Stalkeye

    Hellz, yeah!

  • Stalkeye

    I need to look into that one.

  • Stalkeye

    Taskmaster is another good choice. He could easily be Marvel’s answer to Suicide Squad.

  • Stalkeye

    Yes and to me, it delivered. However, we all laughed at this belligerent fat bitch who brought two of her daughters to see the film in the theater and complained about some guy’s “Big blue Dick” being shown.
    Er, Ms did you check the film’s rating prior to taking your kids to see it???

  • Stalkeye

    WTF did I just see and hear???
    Faraci deserved to get his ass whupped just for praising Kevin Smith, alone!!! I wish I was in Swanberg’s place at the time, I would’ve given a new meaning to “Hitting below the belt”! wasnt Faraci accused of being a child molester or something

  • Stalkeye

    He gets a pass for Assault on Wall Street. A Film I can identify with.
    The Big Short meets The Exterminator. Hahah, I love it!

    “This movie is non-threatening.”

    Actually it is. just as we now know certain foods have a direct link to cancer and various diseases it will also become known that shitty remakes are actually detrimental to the original films.

    It may take years to pound this home..but I have the time. : )

    Bad sequels/reboots/remakes pollute and contaminate the social consciousness of these properties. It taints memories and introduces a new (unflattering) consensus to new generations (first impressions are oh-so important).

    On the plus side..great sequels/reboots/remakes can have the opposite effect on a poorly thought-of property…but by the looks of this. This isn’t one of those cases.

  • Zed

    Velma works out? Now there’s a plot twist.

  • Toruk_Makto

    “I had to lie about my feelings to save face”

    This video is hilarious.

    Bit of a chubby, no? :p

    I think this cosplayer is hotter:

    And, of course, the ever hot Linda Cardellini as Velma:

    But this one is the best of all! :

    http://i.imgur.com/CWD5UN5.jpg

    😮

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    I believe there were some accusations to that effect, yes. Back in his CHUD days, that fucker used to constantly profess his “affection” (ie. lust) for Hit Girl and Hermione (both actresses well underage at the time) in a very creepy fashion.

    Faraci has been involved in all kinds of dubious shit. By all accounts, he’s a very nasty character indeed. Many people who’ve encountered him as part of the online film critic community, including close former colleagues, have espoused such sentiments.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Fantastic…the chickens are finally coming home to roost!

  • KilliK

    yep, now that nostalgia has been satisfied and enthusiasm is waning, people are starting to wake up and realize what a pile of junk TFA truly was. and if one of the upcoming movies turns out to be a lot better than TFA, the comparison alone will send it even faster to the bottom of the movie series.

    I am curious to see what RLM’s review will be, I am sure they are already preparing it and waiting for the bluray’s footage, are they going to be as harsh and vitriolic as they were with Lucas’ prequels or they going to be apologetic with the retarded fallacy “but it’s fun”?

  • KilliK

    well, Velma is supposed to be a bit chubby.
    but the last one looks like she ate Scooby-Doo..

  • KilliK

    FUCK!!

  • KilliK

    hm, that one with the silent audience while Solo appears for the first time, yeah, I noticed that too during my theatrical viewing. There were a few claps but almost all the theater was dead silent, nowhere near the excited reaction you would expect , which I found very surprising at that time. same happened with Luke, again a few claps and that’s it.

    Sure, the theater applauded when the movie finished, but I take it more of a mechanical reflex than a sincere emotional response, because during the whole movie, the audience was quite.

    btw, looks like it’s not going to reach $1b in USA, and neither break Titanic’s world record. heh.

  • Stalkeye

    And yes, I would.
