Alita: Battle Angel (2019)
According to a new report, this all dates back to the early days after X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters. That movie, which served as a follow-up to the beloved Days of Future Past, didn't do particularly well with critics or fans. So, key producers Simon Kinberg, who went on to direct Dark Phoenix,
Now that Dark Phoenix is the first flop of the X-Men films, Fox executives are reportedly owning up to its box office failure.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix may adapt what is undoubtedly the most iconic comic book storyline of Marvel’s massively popular – bellwether movie adaptation-inspiring – X-Men comic book mythos, but the film, unlike the titular bird, won’t likely rise from the proverbial ashes after its unimpressive opening weekend numbers. Indeed, it appears that executives from Fox – which had long-licensed the film franchise – are admitting their mistake(s) with this entry. (Check out our Dark Phoenix review.)
Unfortunately, the Dark Phoenix ember failed to ignite a coal, with the film officially becoming the lowest-debuting entry in the near-20-year history of the Fox franchise, having only grossed $33 million domestic this past weekend – that’s half of the $66 million opening weekend of 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which, itself, was seen as disappointing,
The latest “X-Men” movie is based on one of the franchise’s most famous comic book storylines, one writer-director Simon Kinberg wanted to adapt faithfully after botching the first “Dark Phoenix” movie adaptation as co-writer of 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand.” The events of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” rebooted the film franchise

This quest challenges Alma’s relationships and brings into question her

Based on the 2019 book, it tells the unforgettable life story of a man who served more than four decades in solitary confinement – in a 6-foot by 9-foot cell, 23 hours a day, in notorious Angola prison in Louisiana – all for a crime he did not commit. That Albert Woodfox survived was, in itself, a feat of extraordinary endurance against the violence and deprivation he faced daily. That he was able to emerge whole from his odyssey within America’s prison and judicial systems is a triumph of the human spirit.
Arrested often as a teenager in New Orleans, Woodfox was finally given a fifty-year sentence for the murder of a white guard during a robbery in 1972 – a crime that he never committed. Without a shred of actual evidence against him, the
The film “is an epic telling of the Battle of Midway, a turning point in the Pacific theater of World War II. The story follows the real soldiers and aviators who pulled off the unbelievable to turn the tide of the war in June 1942.”

Woody Harrelson is playing Admiral Chester Nimitz, "one of the leaders who lead the American naval fleet to victory in a foray that involved aircraft carriers, destroyers and cruisers." Luke Evans

The end of the first film set up a sequel, especially with the reveal of Edward Norton as the big bad villain Nova. When talking about the plans for the sequels, Rodriguez said that Cameron wrote up 1,000 page of notes for him! He didn’t send him all those notes, though, Cameron only ended up sending 600 pages of them.
1,000 page of notes! That just shows you how detailed Cameron is in regards to the films he makes and the story he tells.

According to multiple reports, Lucasfilm hired Laeta Kalogridis last year to write a movie based on the popular video game of the same name. Kalogridis has apparently already nearly finished her first draft of the first movie. The hope is that this may kickstart a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic trilogy.

Lucasfilm’s hiring of Kalogridis is a historic one for the “Star Wars” movie franchise as no sole female screenwriter has ever been behind a “Star Wars” script.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy previously was specifically asked about a Knights of the Old Republic project and confirmed that Lucasfilm is working on something for them to look at, saying:
