The King's Man

What makes a person want to create a super-secret spy agency that has all the coolest gadgets and fashionable attire to go with it? Well, Matthew Vaughn‘s The King’s Man, the prequel to The Kingsman film franchise, will answer that.

With the world on the brink of a global war, Harris Dickinson (Ralph Finnes) creates a new independent spy agency that would operate outside of government. Check out the new trailer here below, along with the new poster and images from the film.

Back in January of 2018 we found out that Ryan Reynolds was developing a new movie based on the Hasbro board game Clue at 20th Century Fox, with his Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick in talks to pen the screenplay.

Now that movie may have found its director. Jason Bateman, who has starred in Arrested Development, Juno, Horrible Bosses, the Netflix series Ozark, and much more, has entered into early negotiations to direct Clue for Fox (and now Disney).

Disney Exec Worried That Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ Could Alienate Disney Fans

Jojo Rabbit

Last week’s reports that Disney would stop 20th Century Fox’s film development and focus more on key franchises like Avatar didn’t come as a huge surprise. The studio was bound to cut back on some of the smaller lesser-known properties. And the news comes in the wake of Fox Studios films operating at a loss of $170 million for the quarter.

And now we are getting a new idea of how Disney might determine which films will be a part of the release slate, and which ones might fall by the wayside. We’re also learning that Disney is worried about edgier upcoming titles like Taika Waititi‘s Jojo Rabbit. More on all of this below.

Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | DVD | Digital |
Director: Robert Rodriguez
Writer: James Cameron, Laeta Kalogridis
Cast: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Keean Johnson
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 122
Release Date: July 24, 2019

Ever since James Cameron put all of his attention on the Avatar franchise, Alita: Battle Angel had been sitting on the back burner for as long as I could remember. Luckily, that all changed when he handed directing responsibilities over to Robert Rodriguez, who seemed to have the right sensibilities in order to bring the manga character to the big screen in a way that would honor the source material and their fans.

While the film was met with mixed reviews, most would say that the adaptation captured Alita and the futuristic world around her well. All those textures, the attention to detail, and the motion-capture work all speak to Cameron’s need to bring those characters and said world to audiences, and eliciting a wide-eyed and jaw-dropping reaction. Though the predictable narrative itself couldn’t support Alita: Battle Angel, the titular character’s journey of self-discovery is something worth watching. Check out my review of the film, plus some of the bonus feature that will be available, below.

Disney To Stop 20th Century Fox Film Development and Focus More On Key Franchise Acquisitions

20th Century Fox

When Disney acquired 20th Century Fox earlier this year, it really changed the entertainment climate. The Mouse House has become a giant media conglomerate. They own various studios, TV networks, and will soon be launching a streaming service. However, there appears to be somewhat of a downside to all of this, at least when you look at it from a stockholder’s point of view.

Disney chief financial officer Christine McCarthy revealed Fox films were at an operating loss of $170 million for the quarter. With these films performing lower than expected, it is forcing Disney to stop production for various 20th Century Fox titles and redirect their focus to key franchises like the newly acquired Marvel properties and Avatar. More on the report below.

‘The King’s Man’ Trailer: All The King’s Men Put A Spy Agency Together Again

The King's Man

The first two Kingsman films introduced the film world to a higher class of spying. Based on the Mark Millar comics of the same name, the franchise is a fun take on the genre that had grown too dark and gritty in recent years. But all agencies have a beginning, and that is no different with the Kingsman. So before all the tailored clothes, fashionable high tech gadgetry, and the manners, there was The King’s Man. This prequel is set nearly a century before the events of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and it stars Ralph Fiennes as a World War I soldier who helps launch the new agency. Check out the trailer here below.

Flash Gordon

Taika Waititi has made a name for himself directing a small handful of indie movies like What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Since then, he’s become one of the most sought out talents. Not only did he direct Thor: Ragnarok, which is easily the best Thor film of the three, but he will be directing Jojo Rabbit, a dark historical satire about a how a young boy in Hitler’s army’s life is turned upside down when he discovers that his mother is hiding a Jewish girl from the Nazis. Waititi will be playing Hitler. He’ll also be one of the voices in Disney+’s The Mandalorian.

But now Waititi will be working on a new project. According to reports, he is setting his sights on “cracking” the story for an animated Flash Gordon project at Disney. More on the story below.

‘Dark Phoenix’ Was Designed To Be “Anti-Apocalypse” and Considered “Too Small For Summer”

Dark Phoenix starring Sophie Turner

It seems that Dark Phoenix, the final installment of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men film franchise was destined to fail right from the get go. Of course, the first film helped usher in a wave of adaptations which would eventually lead up to the highly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, and to a certain extent the DC Extended Universe. However, after debuting with a weak $33 million, it is starting to look like X-Men is more X-Meh.

And like most big budget films that don’t to live up to expectations, there is always some sort of behind the scenes troubles that may have contributed to failures. That is no different with Dark Phoenix. More on the report below.
