Black Mirror Bandersnatch

Netflix has released an official trailer for the Black Mirror movie event of the year. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch has been rumored to be a different kind of movie though.

Instead of a linear three-act movie, Bandersnatch is said to be a “choose your own adventure” kind of film. Meaning that you are in full control of what happens to these characters. At least in concept. We will see tomorrow. For now, check out the trailer below.

Written by Steve Niles
Art by Ben Templesmith
Letters by Robbie Robbins
Cover Art by Ben Templesmith
Trade Paperback
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Release Date: March 8, 2017

Fifteen years ago, a new comic book miniseries from IDW Publishing hit the shelves taking us to Barrow, Alaska, North America’s northernmost community, where the temperatures range from “cold as shit to fucking freezing,” and each year, the Sun does not rise for 30 straight days. The series begins on the last day of sunshine before the month of darkness begins, but this time around, vampires have arrived for unhampered access to sustenance of the human variety.

That 3-issue miniseries was 30 Days of Night and it put horror writer Steve Niles and artist Ben Templesmith on the map.

David Slade is attached to directed Matched over at Disney

David Slade is now tapped to direct an adaptation of Ally Condie‘s young adult novel Matched over at Disney. Slade was attached to direct the new Daredevil reboot at one point in time, but had to leave because he was committed to directing the pilot for NBC’s Hannibal. Now that he has completed his work on the pilot, the director is moving forward with this project, which is an interesting one for both Disney and Slade.

Love is the central focus of Condie’s novel, where a young girl named Cassia lives in world where The Society makes every decision for you. She believes in this system, even believes the people she must love and mate with. That is, until she sees visions of a boy named Ky. She tells The Society about these visions, and they tell her it’s nothing but a glitch. She refuses to accept that kind of answer. Now her whole world is turned upside down and she doesn’t know what to believe.

Fox Wants To Trade Marvel The Silver Surfer and Galactus For An Extension On ‘Daredevil’

Daredevil: Born Again Reboot

Up until last year, 20th Century Fox had been for the better part of the past decade at the receiving end of an unstoppable volley of vitriol over the increasingly shoddy cinematic treatment the studio gave to their three vaunted Marvel Comics properties: Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and Daredevil. Then last summer they released the Matthew Vaughn-directed X-Men: First Class, which earned critical praise and a worldwide gross of more than $350 million – not a bad total considering the movie’s lack of bankable names (unless you count Kevin Bacon) and a coherent marketing strategy. First Class clearly proved that the studio was prepared to follow the example of Marvel Studios in how they develop and execute their superhero blockbusters, attaching talented writers and directors to make the features and making casting decisions not based primarily on demographic appeal.

In addition to the now in-production The Wolverine, Fox has a First Class sequel going before the cameras next year for a summer 2014 release that will be based on the popular and influential Days of Future Past from the original Uncanny X-Men comic series, as well as a reboot of The Fantastic Four happening with Josh Trank, who made his directing debut with this year’s wonderful found-footage superhero movie Chronicle, calling the shots behind the camera. The studio has been attempting to get a new Daredevil movie off the ground for a while now, but long-attached director David Slade (30 Days of Night) departed the project last month. This does not bode well for Fox as their option on the Daredevil character expires on October 10 of this year unless cameras are rolling on the new movie by then.

Fantastic Four

Fox owns a few Marvel properties, two of which will be getting rebooted in the near future.

Josh Trank’s success with Chronicle has put him on the top of the list of possible directors to helm the new Fantastic Four movie, and David Slade was tapped to direct the new Daredevil movie.

Now, as the San Diego Comic-Con officially opens its doors, it’s being reported that Trank has signed on to direct the reboot based on four fantastical heroes, while Slade is taking himself out of the Daredevil reboot.

‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ Director David Slade To Develop ‘Daredevil’ Reboot

The Movie God   |  @   |

Another of the insta-reboots (along with new takes on Spider-Man and Fantastic Four) currently in development at various studios is Daredevil, the Marvel comic book title that was turned into a 2003 movie starring Ben Affleck for 20th Century Fox.

The ’03 movie cost $78 million to make and went on to bring in about $179 million worldwide. It also faced pretty mediocre critical reception — both being assumed reasons Fox has decided they wanted to give it another run. A reboot has been known about for a while, but the studio has now found someone to develop the project and possibly direct it, as well.

Fox has hired David Slade, who recently directed The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, to develop a brand new take on the Daredevil story. It’s assumed that once everything comes together, Slade would also be the man to direct. Eclipse cost $68 million to make and went on to bring in almost $700 million worldwide.

Movie Review: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Directed by David Slade
Starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
Rated PG-13
Release date: June 30, 2010

Hailing The Twilight Saga: Eclipse the best of the series isn’t the ringing endorsement it sounds. Hearing that won’t change the minds of any non-believers and if you are already among the following, you aren’t one that needs converting. It most certainly is, but it’s a pretty relative statement.

I have always taken the stance of non-participation in the popular recreation of Twilight bashing. Attacking the mob mentality of these zealots is a bandwagon that would be easy to jump on, but Lord knows I liked some awful movies when I was younger, so I’ve always given the series a fair shake. They haven’t been great, in fact they have been downright ugly at times, but I can see why so many fans like them. A little.

Eclipse starts off pretty promising. Dark and raining in Seattle, a young man is being chased and hunted by something. This is the first time in this series I got the sense that vampires are dangerous and anything but sparkly and cuddly. It turns out to be Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard), who is still hellbent on exacting revenge on Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) for killing her boyfriend James in the first film. Her plan is to find and kill Bella (Kristen Stewart), presumably so Edward can feel what she felt when her boyfriend died. The young man ends up being a college student from Forks, Riley Biers (Xavier Samuel), who is turned and tricked by Victoria into helping her assemble an army of newborn vampires to help take down Bella and the Cullen vampire clan.

The Big Question: To Split ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’ In Half Or Not?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

As we’ve all known was a very likely possibility, it is being reported that Summit Entertainment is deciding whether or not to split The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — the final movie in the franchise (supposedly) — into two movies.

When Twilight was first peeking its head out, many said that it was going to be the next Harry Potter franchise, and to this many giggles (myself included) were had. And while the movie have been no where even close to as good as the Harry Potter films thus far, with The Twilight Saga: New Moon approaching $500 Million worldwide, you just can’t deny that it’s throwing down the same numbers.

With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, they decided to split it in two in order to cover a lot more of the story, and of course, to make a whole new un-godly amount of money that they would never have made if they only did one film. This is also being done with The Hobbit. Naturally, it has always been a question as to whether Twilight would take the same path once they reached their final film. Now that they have established themselves as a heavy hitter, it comes as no shock that Summit Entertainment has this choice to make.

David Slade Hired To Direct ‘Twilight’ Threequel ‘Eclipse’

Eclipse

President of Production for Summit Entertainment, Erik Feig has officially announced that director David Slade will take over the helm for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse — the third movie in the series, which is set for a June 30, 2010 release date. This sets the director’s chair up for the trilogy with The Golden Compass director Chris Weitz currently handling the sequel, New Moon.

Though the first movie did really well, the way it was handled by then director Catherine Hardwicke was not exactly the way that the studio wanted it, so they began their search for new blood. And as you can tell, they’ve gotten their hands on some decent talent.

David Slade first jumped on the scene with Hard Candy — his acclaimed, yet dark and sometimes hard-to-watch movie about a pedophile and the young girl trying to shine a light on his despicable ways. The movie starred Patrick Wilson and Ellen Page. He’s probably more known for his second film, though, which was 30 Days of Night. No word on if the vampire experience landed him this gig, but I’m sure it helped!
