Hi there. Yes – I know it’s saturday. What can I say? I reserve the right. It’s been a nice, sunny, warm week here in the North and I wasn’t gonna spend it all cramped inside the house, typing frantically.

What’s on the weekly news-update front this week? We’ve got a big-studio remake of Richard Band‘s “Puppet Master” and there’s something called “Monsterpocalypse“…

Of course, everybody and their cousin has already seen or is going to see “Captain America: Civil War” – and the Russo Brothers are already knee-deep in the Marvel’s two-part “Infinity War, Part 1-2“-project. Although – it will not be titledInfinity War” anymore. Nor be two halves of one story released a year apart. The Russos made that very clear this week. “The movies are two very different movies,” said Joe Russo. “It is misleading[to call them Part 1 and 2]” said Anthony. Joe continued with: “The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will retitle them.

What else?

 

RUSSELL CROWE VS. MUMMY

hqdefault

Yeah, the Universal Monsters reboot-series is steaming ahead with Alex Kurtzman‘s “The Mummy“, starring Tom Cruise – and it’s latest big star casting announcement was Russell Crowe. Who would be playing quite a surprising character to be added to the Mummy-franchise, but I guess this is part of the master-plan of creating a Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe.Let’s have Mr.Crowe himself make this revelation: “I’m gonna play Dr. Henry Jekyll, Fellow of the Royal Society. It’s very interesting, what they’re gonna do with that stuff. I’ve had a couple of chats about it with the director (Alex Kurtzman). I’ve known Tom Cruise since 1992, or something like that. When he was married to an Australian, I was really good friends with him. But when he got divorced, I was part of the settlement package, and I went to Nicole [Kidman].” So there you have it. Dr. Jekyll will be a part of “The Mummy“. And this will probably be only the first of these mash-ups. Whaddya think?

An official synopsis of “The Mummy” was also released:

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

 

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

 

MICHAEL SHANNON TO JOIN DEL TORO’S NEXT

zoolander-mermaid-520x245

Well, Michael Shannon is “in talks”, at least, to join the Cold War-era supernatural film, that Guillermo Del Toro is making for Fox Searchlight. The film – rumored to be titled “The Shape of Water” and currently already starring Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Richard Jenkins – also had some sort of a plot synopsis published. It’s got a Mer-Man! Here goes the full (unofficial) story:

Set in 1963, centers around Elisa (Hawkins), a mute janitor working at a lab where an amphibious man is being held captive. When Elisa falls in love with the creature, she devises a plan to help him escape with the assistance of her neighbor (Jenkins). The world outside of the lab, however, may prove to be more dangerous for the amphibious man than Elisa could have anticipated.

Shannon would be playing a villainous role in the film, which sure looks like a gender-swapped “Splash” set in the Cold War. Mer-man is probably being experimented for military-use purposes, no doubt.

 

“INFERNO” POSTER

inferno-poster-tom-hanks

From the same people who made the boring “The Da Vinci Code” and the slightly less boring “Angels and Demons“, comes…a puzzled-looking Tom Hanks with the most normal-looking haircut in this series so far.

 

IN CASE SOMEONE DIDN’T ALREADY KNOW…

Alden Ehrenreich has now been officially cast as young Han Solo in the upcoming “Star Wars Story” focusing on the exploits of Han Solo prior to the events of “A New Hope“. The Phil Lord and Christopher Miller-directed, Lawrence Kasdan/Jon Kasdan-written film is in deep pre-production. And here’s a little something Tweeted by Miller during the Star Wars-day:

 

ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER SCORSESE PICTURE IN TALKS

TXogVw4

Last week there was murmur of Martin Scorsese eyeing a George Washington-biopic, this week there’s another project in the up-and-up. This is something Scorsese has been trying to get made for while now. And it’s also one that would possibly reunite him with some old colleagues – and possibly not star Leonardo DiCaprio.

“The Irishman”, based on a Charles Brandt book “I Heard You Paint Houses” is close to becoming a reality, they say – as Paramount Pictures is near at making a deal for international distribution rights. Don’t ask me to explain the thing any further; the whole deal is some serious industry/legal gobbledygook that I understand about as much as Mandarin Chinese.

Anyways, “The Irishman” – adapted by Steven Zaillian – is the deathbed story from mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran about the disappearance and death of Jimmy Hoffa, and Scorsese has had his dream cast for this picture for a long time: the lineup would consist of Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. That being said…all the excitement of Scorsese reuniting with his former heavy-hitters AND Pacino is a bit staled by the fact that; isn’t the Hoffa story already told like a 100 times? The last time this was attempted by Danny De Vito in his film “Hoffa” back in 1992, the aisles were full of crickets. It was not a bad film at all, but the audience’s interest in Hoffa seems to be about as dead as… well – Hoffa.

 

ARNOLD SCWARZENEGGER GOING BACK  TO COMEDY

arnold-bar

Yes – he is. Because it worked so well the last time(*coughcoughJuniorcoughcoughJinglealltheWaycoughcough*). But that is the news this week: Arnold Schwarzenegger is to star in “Why We’re Killing Gunther“, an action comedy directed by “Saturday Night Live” star Taran Killam, making his directorial debut and co-starring Killam’s wife Cobie Smulders (How I met Your Mother), Bobby Moynihan (SNL), Paul Brittain (Hotel Transylvania 2), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Randall Park (The Interview) and Ryan Gaul (Identity Thief). The story of the film is that it will focus on a group of eccentric international assassins who become fed up with Gunther, the world’s greatest hitman who also happens to be an arrogant show-off, and decide to kill him. Their master plan, however, quickly turns into a series of embarrassing encounters as Gunther always appears one step ahead.

On a scale of 1-10, is this a total bomb in the making or goood idea?

 

“DEADPOOL” CONTINUES TO HAVE THE BEST MARKETING OF THE YEAR – EVEN AFTER THEATRICAL RELEASE

I don’t know who is the person responsible for all of the marketing on “Deadpool“, but that person would deserve a very special Academy Award or something.

 

“USS INDIANAPOLIS” – THE SHARKS OF THE WEEK, PT.1

There it is – Quint’s Indianapolis Speech: The Movie. I dunno: Mario Van Peebles sure does his best Michael Bay-impression here.

 

THE SHARKS OF THE WEEK PT.2

The Shallows” takes a more personal, intimate angle by focusing on one heroine, one shark and one tiny rock in the ocean. Might be good. Or not. Depends on the execution.

 

TOM HOOPER TO DIRECT “CATS” MOVIE ADAPTATION

cat gif1

When I first read that headline, I misread it as “Tobe Hooper…“. THAT might’ve actually been interesting. As it is – it’s definitely not for me. But here is the announcement: Universal and Working Title will produce a film adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical “Cats“, directed by Tom Hooper(“The King’s Speech”, “The Danish Girl“). Of course, this is not the first musical adaptation by Hooper, as he directed “Les Misérables” in 2012.

 

SPIT-TAKE OF THE WEEK

7e478ca9

I’m just gonna leave this here:

power-rangers-reboot-costumes

And I’m gonna say that this is not a spit-take from me, but from the “Power Rangers“-fans out there. I am completely in the dark on the whole subject – but this is a spit-take of solidarity.

 

That Is All.

  • Xiphos

    Marvel should just re-title all their flicks to “Nerd loving Vanilla Mediocrity.” That right there is what the kids like to call a “truth bomb”.

    Also: code-breaking now in IMAX

  • Foster Breadford

    Hahaha that Inferno poster

    “Here look at that infernal staircase… but first I want to talk to you about your car insurance.”

    Nothing says ‘inferno’ like stairs

    Since “Angel Heart” we know it’s old elevators.

    Oy, Dee – wanna bet that Dr.Jekyll has some Magic Blood-thing going on in The Mummy?

  • Dee-abolik

    No, I can’t win this if I bet against it.

  • I_am_better

    The Invisible Man will have an appearance in every film

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    No Civil War reviews up yet so we can discuss it? I’d write one, but I can’t be bothered.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    EVERY film. I think I spotted him in Civil War and Batman V Superman, too.

  • I_am_better

    I’m broke, so I won’t see it until I’m not broke.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Maybe you should take out a loan!

  • I_am_better

    I take pride in the fact that I’ve lived to forty without ever taken any loans. Will not start now.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    I knew they’d add Mr. Hyde to the Universal Monsters slate, although the original Spencer Tracy film wasn’t released by Universal. I think it’s public domain now, anyway, so it doesn’t matter. I don’t see them attempting Phantom of the Opera, and they might add a few more obscure characters from their back catalogue: the Creeper, Leech Woman, etc.

    Someone on another site suggested Christian Bale for the role of Dracula; when you think back to American Psycho, that could be genius.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Smart man.

  • Dee-abolik

    I might see it tomorrow. Eventually. I am sadly a little bound by circumstances.

  • I_am_better

    Banks are nothing but corporations dedicated to enslave a person and suck out their life and soul. The less money I keep in a bank the better.

  • I_am_better

    I just wonder if they consider Dracula Untold and Luke Evans a part of this new Universe, as it was a Universal production

  • Dee-abolik

    A more flamboyant role for Bale would be a nice change.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    I’m curious to hear your opinion of it. I liked it a lot. Creepy detested the film and savaged it on his blog, which surprised me. But I can rarely predict which way he’s going to lean on any given film.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    I think they’ve decided not to include it, as there wasn’t any mention of it in the various press releases. It wasn’t a flop, but it wasn’t a huge hit, either. And Luke Evans is hardly a big name. They seem to be going for A-listers for the monsters or, in the case of The Mummy, A-listers in some capacity, anyway.

    I never saw Dracula Untold, so I can’t comment on its quality. It looked pretty generic to me.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Keep it under the mattress, instead. That’s what I do.

  • I_am_better

    I did not hate it. Though I watched it back to back with I Frankenstein which was such a POS that anything would seem okay seen next to it.

  • Dee-abolik

    It was very generic.

  • Dee-abolik

    Recently there was a Victor Frankenstein movie with Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, with a very moderate BO income. It’s amazing they still continue trying to milk the Universal monsters.

  • franks_television

    The Han Solo guy doesn’t look as bad in that picture as in the other one I’ve seen. A little bit more like Ford.

  • I_am_better

    Yeah. Had to look a bit for one that had that look

  • KilliK

    holy shit @ the design of the Nu Rangers. my deepest condolences to the PR fans.

  • Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen…..

    So the queen was ancient when she was entombed, and they did that to keep her safe from the desert that had some grudge against her…. idk. Sounds magical, and it has Tom Cruise standing on boxes. Im down for that !! Because hey, after I, Frankenstein and Dracula Untold…. how much worse could it possibly get ?

  • I_am_better

    Worse? There’s always worse.
    Jai Courtney as the Wolf Man or something…

  • CoolHandJuke

    Jingle All the Way is a masterpiece that returns me to my last childhood Christmas when Tickle Me Elmo and the N64 were must haves…

  • It could work……

    I wonder though how this is gonna be a shared universe. By setting the Mommy in modern day, does that mean they all will be set in modern day. What is their money shot gonna be ala the Avengers circle shot ?

  • Tarmac492.1

    we dont need another Hoffa flick

  • Tarmac492.1

    actually watched it last night. fairly lame considering the topic.

  • I_am_better

    I agree.
    I’m SURE Scorsese would have other projects where he could use DeNiro, Pacino and Pesci.

  • Tarmac492.1

    the DeVito laughing in the mens room with the neverending reflection is enough to never touch Hoffa again. And the underrated Mamet dialogue. The growing legend of Proskys death in it? Such great, subtle writing.

  • I_am_better

    Yeah. I kinda went into it like “well, let’s see this just because no one else ever saw it”, but I ended up enjoying the hell out of it.

  • Tarmac492.1

    it has crazy artistic flair. love the fuck out of that flick.

  • I_am_better

    DeVito is an underrated director. I’ve always felt “War of the Roses” is an unappreciated dark comedy masterpiece as well

  • Tarmac492.1

    u put me up against Satan and the US Congress i will defend to the death Hoffa And Coppolas Dracula. Swinging for the fences is something i can get behind. results are sometimes secondary.

  • Tarmac492.1

    deVito a pint sized genius.

  • Tarmac492.1

    how can these dan brown books and hanks movies be so boring given the subject matter. where is oliver stone when u need him?

  • Tarmac492.1

    Ryan Reynolds from pariah to poobah in three days. good for him. easy to root for.

  • Tarmac492.1

    not sure these casting directors even saw Star Wars. I liked Beautiful Creatures. Not sure he is solo. Would have liked Eastwoods kid. I will be there though.

  • I_am_better

    Stone has kind of bought a cottage in Mediocreland for the last 10-15 years

  • Tarmac492.1

    sadly. so has the USa. catchy.

  • Tarmac492.1

    80s or 90s stone would have blown it out of the water

  • Tarmac492.1

    once again., IAB needs to be congratulated for his tireless work on SN. if i knew any finnish esorts and ur address i would send 4 over!!

  • I_am_better

    I’m kinda troubled by the whole “young Han Solo”-thing in general. The only thing that gives it some credit is the Kasdans at this point.

  • Tarmac492.1

    why not make a Solo movie between ep 4 and 5? maybe we could get a good Boba Fett. I want my fucking Casablanca in Space!!

  • I_am_better

    The trailer for his “Snowden” did not evoke much confidence

  • Tarmac492.1

    true..

  • Tarmac492.1

    JFK is a masterpiece for the ages.

  • Tarmac492.1

    wanna see Green Room from the Blue Ruin dude. Punk music and rednecks?

  • I_am_better

    Endlessly rewatchable

  • Tarmac492.1

    tommy lee jones is a monster in this. when they finally get him to say “Clay Bertrand” stunning.

  • I_am_better

    Patrick Stewart as a skinhead? Looks dope

  • Tarmac492.1

    my love of Trees Lounge And Day drinking have me listening to the Ink Spots. Perfect american drinking tunes

  • Tarmac492.1

    cant go wrong. Blue Ruin was badass.

  • Bop

    I loathe banks. They keep your money, but their service is just bad. I understand why people go ballistic.

  • Bop

    Did you enjoy it? I expected to hate it, but enjoyed it more than I expected.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Best Marvel movie yet, as far as I’m concerned. Well, I’ll see how it holds up on repeated viewings, but that’s what I’m going for right now. And it was certainly an improvement over the mediocre Age of Ultron.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    “It don’t take much to see that the problems of three crazy people don’t amount to a hill of gundarks in this crazy galaxy.”

    “Play it again, rebel scum.”

    I suppose you could always watch Barb Wire in the meantime. Wasn’t that supposed to be a science fiction version of Casablanca? LOL

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    That was the Max Landis one, wasn’t it? How does that guy continue getting work? Even his father must have disowned him by this point.

  • Tarmac492.1

    never saw Barb. I do believe the scene in Casablanca with Rick at the table with Peter Lorre was aped by Spielberg with a drunken Indy and Belloq. Loved Pam back in the day tho!!

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Don’t worry; you’re not missing much! At least it was made before her face started resembling a catcher’s mitt, so there’s that. And – hey – some may consider it a camp classic, for all I know.

  • Bop

    Age Of Ultron left a really bad taste in my mouth when I saw it in the cinema. Action scenes were shit, the forced humor was shit, Hawkeye’s home etc. Didn’t feel like watching anything Marvel related after that. This Cap movie got the action scenes right, I think, and the airport scene was so much fun. Now I am curious about the Infinity movies. Seems to me the Russo brothers are up to it. They made me a believer with this Cap movie.

  • Bop

    Enjoy the wetter, IAB. I am also enjoying it as long as it lasts.

  • Bop

    Amen, Tarmac.

  • Dee-abolik

    He said in an interview he only does it because he is co-writing with his son and his family begged him to do so. There go those credits.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Yeah, the Russos seem to have a steady hand on things. They’re a much better for these movies than Whedon, who has talent but gets carried away at times. This is the sequel the first Avengers movie should’ve had.

  • KilliK

    indeed.

  • Dee-abolik

    Yeah and I cannot explain the Landis hype either. The script was so by numbers, reuniting all trends that are on the verge of being outdated, anybody could have written that. Actually the direction (by Paul McGuigan) and the actors are quite good, so it’s not totally unwatchable, but the writing is the one big weak point of the movie, which should be telling.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Chronicle was horrible. I haven’t seen any of his others. He seems to believe his ideas are brilliantly original, but nearly all of them involve nothing more than presenting a classic concept from a contrarian perspective.

    “Oh, look, let”s tell the Frankenstein story from the perspective of Igor, Dr. Frankenstein’s assistant. Let’s have a version of Superman where Lex Luthor is the mastermind behind Superman’s humanitarian public image. (Yes, that was his “novel” idea for Superman.) Let’s re-tell X-Men/Akira using found footage!”

    The guy is very full of himself and a real self-promoter. But then, his famous father was not known for his modesty, either.

  • Dee-abolik

    Well, at least he can’t kill innocent kids with his writing…. too soon?

  • Tarmac492.1

    for the past week, the weather on long island has been cold and damp as a dead hookers dirty cunt

  • Tarmac492.1

    oh this movie should suck. The Kasdan name doesnt have the same cache. Why not just get koepp to type it?

  • Tarmac492.1

    Jai Courtney would make a decent department store mannequin

  • Tarmac492.1

    Lol

  • Tarmac492.1

    I had never heard of the russos but they have a good grasp on character and action. Wished they directed the first cap instead of the eternally bland joe Johnston. Boring name boring director

  • Tarmac492.1

    I just finance cars. I actually like the freedom of renting apartments. Especially since I’m a,serial murderer.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I think it is fucking criminal that I can get banged 3 bucks to take money out of an atm that isn’t my bank and then my bank will hit u for another 2 after that. Cuntfuckers

    Only in the seasonal section during October.

  • Frimmel

    With Civil War they seemed to have learned the lesson of AoU about how much you can advertise for the other films in your connected universe and not create too much of a detour for your movie.

  • Frimmel

    Those scenes do not serve anything like similar purposes in their films nor are the characters of similar relation to each other. In Casablanca it is the setup for the story. In Raiders it is the villain monologue-ing (monologging? monologuing?)

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Well, I liked the First Avenger and thought Johnston’s “Rockteer” throwback style was perfect for a period piece. As a whole, however, his geek fame largely seems to rest on his Star Wars storyboard and FX work, and the fact that he created Boba Fett, rather than any particular movies he directed (the aforementioned Rocketeer as perhaps the only exception). His overall filmography is not that impressive.
