Blackhawk Header

It was only a matter of time before a legendary director such as Steven Spielberg became involved in a superhero epic. However, which side he would go to was unclear.

Now we know. According to new reports Spielberg, along with his Amblin Entertainment, are set to produce Blackhawk, a World War II title that features DC characters. The film is also being developed for Spielberg to direct. This is the second major collaboration between the two since Ready Player One. More on the story below.

Universal’s Dark Universe May Be Dead As Key Figures Start To Leave It Behind

Dark Universe title card

Let’s face it, Universal’s Dark Universe was a very ambitious plan that no one really was on board for. Though contemporary takes on the classic Universal monsters sounded like a good idea on the surface, the results were anything but that. It all started with The Mummy, the Tom Cruise-starring vehicle that was supposed to launch the universe. The film performed well-below expectations, and what followed made things even worse for the potential universe. Bride of Frankenstein, directed by Bill Condon and starring Javier Bardem as the Monster and possibly Angelina Jolie as the title character, had been put on hold. Reports stated that it was to fix some of the script issues. While that may be true, it was a sign that things weren’t going well. And this latest bit may be the final nail in the coffin.

According to a new report, the Dark Universe may be dead as key figures like Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are now leaving it behind, forcing Universal to rethink the interconnected monster world that they are creating. More on the story below.

Universal’s ‘Bride Of Frankenstein’ No Longer Alive, For Now At Least

Dark Universe group shot Bride Of Frankenstein

This Summer, Universal released The Mummy, the first film in their new Dark Universe. Similar to that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe, the Dark Universe would have re-envisioned Universal’s famous classic movie monsters with a modern day twist. The idea sounded promising, especially when it touted a stellar cast like Tom Cruise and Javier Bardem, and it seemed like it had all the makings of a success.

But The Mummy was panned by critics and was a box office bomb, leaving many to question if there was any need to explore a Dark Universe or kick it off with a reboot of a film so soon. So, at least for now, Universal and director Bill Condon have decided to hit the pause button on what was to be the next installment, Bride Of Frankenstein. More on the story below.

Honest Trailers Lost World Jurassic Park

The new trend in Honest Trailers is to preview the big release of the upcoming weekend. After Pitch Perfect and Entourage the last two weeks, the Screen Junkies guys debut this afternoon The Lost World: Jurassic Park trailer, mocking Steven Spielberg’s 1997 sequel to the legendary 1993 hit Jurassic Park. In fact the sequel thing is the first thing they poke fun, relating Lost World to one of the unnecessary Jaws sequels. Narrator Jon Bailey also asks a question I always pondered:

“Why isn’t the title Jurassic Park 2: Lost World?”

Be sure to check out the video below.

Recreate ‘Jurassic Park’ Hacking Scene With Jurassic Systems

Jurassic Park

Remember that scene from Steven Spielberg‘s original Jurassic Park where Newman sabotages the park’s high-tech security measures in order to steal some dinosaur embryos and Samuel L. Muthaf***in’ Jackson! tries briefly to restore order before telling the Oscar-winning director of Gandhi that he can’t get the park back online? I’m pretty sure it was in the trailer.

Jurassic Systems is an interactive HMTL5/Javascript site created by programmer Tully Robinson that allows you to recreate this scene. When you visit the site, will be taken to the main page where the Jurassic Park scene is available to watch as a YouTube embed. It’s advised that you watch this scene before proceeding to the fun part because you will need to know the three commands Jackson’s character enters before that annoying little animation of Newman’s sweaty, bulbous noggin on a cartoon Elvis body (never noticed that part before) wagging his finger and saying, “Ah-ah-ah, you didn’t say the magic word!” Enter the three commands in the correct phrasing and order and….well, you know what happens next. The system also accepts these five basic commands: “access,” “system,” “ls,” “display,” and “help.”

Chris Pine Sets A Bad Example In This Motorcyle Pic For ‘Jack Ryan’

Jack Ryan Header

Chris Pine seems to have a bad habit of riding a motorcycle without his helmet. But when you get play as Jack Ryan, I don’t think it really matters. Paramount Pictures has just released the first photo of Pine playing as the titular character in the upcoming film titled Jack Ryan. Check out the full image of Pine below.

Now there is not a lot to take away from this photo alone. The photo is what it is, which is Pine cruising down the streets of New York City on a Ducati (which is a very cool and very fast motorcycle by the way) without his helmet. We don’t know where Jack Ryan is heading, but he seems to be determined to make it to his destination on time, even risking breaking the law to do so.

Movie Review: Premium Rush

Premium Rush PosterPremium Rush
Directed by: David Koepp
Written by: David Koepp, John Kamps
Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Jamie Chung, Dania Ramirez
Columbia Pictures
PG-13 | 91 Minutes
Release Date: August 24, 2012

“I like to ride. Fixed gear. No brakes. Can’t stop. Don’t want to, either.”

Directed by David Koepp (Ghost Town) and written by Koepp and John Kamps (Zathura: A Space Adventure), Premium Rush stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Wilee, a New York City bike messenger who picks up a mysterious envelope from Columbia University.

Detective Robert Monday (Michael Shannon) is a dirty copy with serious impulse control issues, who’s desperate to get his hands on the envelope. Chasing Wilee and his fellow bike couriers Vanessa (Dania Ramirez) and Manny (Wolé Parks) through the streets of New York, Monday must get the envelope before it reaches its intended destination.

“Breaks are death!” To his fellow bicycle enthusiasts, Wilee comes off as a bit of a radical – a former stunt performer on a suicide mission. His fixed-gear bike cannot coast, because the pedals are always moving. Keopp’s film operates similarly, running at one-speed with no brakes until its conclusion.

Premium Rush Header

I for one have never had the luxury of spending any quality time in New York, but if it’s anything like in the movies, it’s one big rush. So if it’s anything like Premium Rush, then I cannot wait to experience the city firsthand. A new trailer for Premium Rush, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is now online. You can check out the trailer below.

Gordon-Levitt stars as a New York bicycle messenger who is tasked with delivering a seemingly harmless message to its destination in 90 minutes. But once an undercover police officer finds out that the message is out there, he demands that it be handed over and soon the messenger is caught up in a conspiracy and chase that covers the length of Manhattan.

Men in Black 3

Once upon a time (the late 1990s to be exact) Will Smith was not only the Fresh Prince, but he was also the king of the summer movie season – for two summers. Then came Wild Wild West. Ever since, Big Willie has been continuing to rack up the blockbusters while attempting to dominate different seasons that don’t involve millions of people suddenly deciding to go to the beach.

This summer, Smith is mounting an offensive to reclaim his summer movie king throne with the belated sequel Men in Black 3. Today, a full theatrical trailer has been released. You can watch it here below.
