Dark Phoenix Crashes and Burns at the Box Office, So What Went Wrong?

Dark Phoenix Crashes and Burns at the Box Office, So What Went Wrong?
Dark Phoenix finally hit theaters over the weekend and it arrived with something of a thud. This is going to be the final proper X-Men movie, at least in this version of the franchise, which means the long-running series is going out on something of a low note. It set a new low for the franchise at the box office and has been lambasted by critics so far. So, the question must be asked, what went wrong? A new report dives deep on that and, as much finger pointing as there's sure to be, there's no one place to point those fingers.

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,

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Has Fox Executives Saying “We Were Wrong”

Joseph Baxter Jun 10, 2019

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,

‘Dark Phoenix’ Originally Planned as Two Movies, Fox CEO Forced Deadly Summer Release — Report

‘Dark Phoenix’ Originally Planned as Two Movies, Fox CEO Forced Deadly Summer Release — Report
Dark Phoenix” opened in theaters nationwide June 7 and ended the 19-year-old “X-Men” movie franchise at rock bottom. With just $33 million at the box office over its debut weekend, “Dark Phoenix” is the lowest opener of the franchise and, according to IndieWire’s box office expert Tom Brueggemann, will most likely finish its run with a total domestic gross that is lower than the opening weekends of several previous “X-Men” movies. A new report from Deadline details the behind-the-scenes drama that led to the “Dark Phoenix” disaster and reveals the film was originally set up as a two-parter.

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

Mahershala Ali takes the lead in prison drama ‘Solitary’

Mahershala Ali is set to star in and serve as executive producer in the adaptation of Albert Woodfox memoir ‘Solitary’.

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

James Cameron Had 1,000 Pages of Notes For Robert Rodriguez Regarding The Alita: Battle Angel Trilogy

James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel was a pretty badass sci-fi movie. I loved it! Unfortunately, it didn’t do as well at the box office as the studio would have hoped. At this point, I have no idea if we are going to see a sequel, but when Cameron and Rodriguez set out on the journey to tell the story of Alita, they envisioned it as a trilogy.

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.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Movie Brings in Alita: Battle Angel Writer?

A Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic movie is reportedly in the works at Lucasfilm. There has been much speculation in regards to a possible Old Republic project. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, in an interview during Star Wars Celebration confirmed, "Yes, we are developing something" within the Old Republic. It wasn't clear exactly what that would be or when it would be happening. Now we have word that Laeta Kalogridis has been hired to pen the screenplay, and it gets even better for fans who want to see this happen.

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.

‘Star Wars’ Plans ‘Knights of the Old Republic’ Film Trilogy With First Female Writer Since 1980 — Report

It looks like the “Star Wars” film franchise following the release of “The Rise of Skywalker” later this year is slowly coming into focus. According to a new report from BuzzFeed, Lucasfilm is gearing up for a potential new trilogy based on the video game series “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” that started in 2003. Sources close to the studio say Laeta Kalogridis is finishing the script for the first movie after coming on board the project in spring 2018.

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. The only credited female writer in the “Star Wars” movie universe is Leigh Brackett, who shared a credit with Lawrence Kasdan on 1980’s “The Empire Strikes Back.” Since then, only men have written “Star Wars” movies and the franchise has come under
