Zack Snyder’s New Zombie Movie Army Of The Dead to Star Dave Bautista

Before he directed 300, Man of Steel, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder took viewers to the mall for some shopping and zombie slaying in the 2004 remake of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead. Now, nearly 15 years later, Snyder is diving back into the world of flesh eaters with the big-budget Netflix movie Army of the Dead, and it's been revealed that Dave Bautista is the first actor to join the zombified project.

The casting news for Army of Dead comes from The Hollywood Reporter, who revealed that Bautista has finalized a deal to star in the zombie movie.

The name and traits of Bautista's character have yet to be revealed, but according to THR, the long-gestating Army of the Dead is "set amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into

‘The Gentlemen’ First Look: Guy Ritchie Will Return to His ‘Vintage’ Roots After ‘Aladdin’

‘The Gentlemen’ First Look: Guy Ritchie Will Return to His ‘Vintage’ Roots After ‘Aladdin’
For fans of Guy Ritchie’s particular brand of action cinema, the news that the “Snatch” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” filmmaker was moving into the live-action Disney remake world with this year’s “Aladdin” might have been bit worrisome. What about the next “RocknRolla”? Never fear, because Ritchie has already teed up his first post-“Aladdin” film, and if a first look is to be believed, he’s back in his classic crime wheelhouse.

Previously known as “Toff Guys” and “Bush,” Ritchie’s “The Gentlemen” will see the British filmmaker teaming up with mini-major Stx Entertainment, which showed off a first look at the film during its Tuesday morning CinemaCon presentation. And it’s vintage Ritchie: a crime thriller with plenty of laughs, a majorly stacked cast, and a few gags that might require a bit of a translation across the pond.

Exclusive Interview – Visual Effects Supervisor Christian Kaestner on Captain Marvel

Harrison Abbott chats with Captain Marvel visual effects supervisor Christian Kaestner

As a VFX supervisor for Framestore’s Montreal division, Christian Kaestner has contributed to several high-profile releases including: Alien: Covenant; Paddington; and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. More recently, the award-winning visual artist oversaw some of the critical work on Captain Marvel, helping to deliver its key environments and most striking images.

In the wake of the film’s staggering box-office performance, we caught up with Christian to talk about his career, what it’s been like working for Marvel and what it takes to be a good VFX supervisor. For those who are more interested in the technical aspects, we also dig deep into nerdier territory, exploring how to pull off a convincing digi-double, the challenges of slowing down CG images and how to simulate underwater physics. Enjoy!

DC's The Flash Movie is Moving Pretty Slowly as The Movie is Getting Another Rewrite

Ezra Miller recently teased that The Flash movie he is set to star in would feature “a speedster multiverse” and now we’ve learned that the script is currently going through another rewrite. That rewrite is coming from the film’s directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

They were initially hired to direct The Flash from a script that was written by Joby Harold (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword). Before they came on board, Seth Grahame-Smith was on board to write and direct the project and then Rick Famuyiwa came in to replace him. Things didn’t work out with the scripts that have been written and now Daley and Goldstein are doing another rewrite.

I’m actually glad to hear that they are writing the script, I think that they’ll bring some really cool and fun elements to the film when it eventually gets made. While

The Kid Who Would Be King Is 2019's First Big Bomb

We have our first major box office flop of 2019. The Kid Who Would Be King, Fox's new kid-friendly take on the legend of King Arthur is, unfortunately, going to walk away with the distinction. The movie opened this past weekend and its numbers were far from impressive for almost any movie, let alone a giant fantasy blockbuster with a huge marketing budget. With that taken into account, Fox could stand to lose tens of millions of dollars as a result.

According to insiders at rival studios, the movie could lose as much as $50 million. As of this writing, it's grossed just $10.8 million worldwide, including $7.5 million domestically. Granted, it still has quite a few markets to open in around the world, including the United Kingdom, where it's expected to have a reasonably large audience. For what it's worth, insiders at Fox dispute the $50 million figure, which doesn't account for home

Toby Emmerich on Warners Bros.' 'Crazy Rich' Year: "We All Feel Like We've Turned a Corner Now"

Toby Emmerich on Warners Bros.' 'Crazy Rich' Year:
One year after Toby Emmerich ascended to chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group and consolidated his power, his team's 2018 slate of films has gone a long way in restoring the studio to stability. The success follows a difficult era with big misses like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), Jupiter Ascending (2015) and Pan (2015) punctuated by a win here and there, such as 2017's Wonder Woman, It and Dunkirk (Emmerich was president and chief content officer at the time after jumping from New Line to Warners in late 2016).

On Jan. 19, Emmerich, 55, will be feted with the ...

Princess Jasmine Prepares for Adventure in Latest Look at Disney's Aladdin

Princess Jasmine Prepares for Adventure in Latest Look at Disney's Aladdin
We have a brand new image of Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine from Disney's live-action Aladdin. A couple of weeks ago, Disney released the first images from the upcoming reimagining of their 1992 animated classic, which drew something of a mixed response. But that mostly had to do with the fact that Will Smith's Genie wasn't quite what everyone was expecting. Now, we have a new look at one of the movie's most important characters.

Naomi Scott broke out in the recent live-action Power Rangers, which helped her land the gig as Jasmine in the new Aladdin. This latest image sees here looking elegant and royal from head to toe. At this point, it's really tough to say how the movie is going to turn out, since the initial teaser trailer really didn't give us too much in the way of context, but Scott certainly looks the part.

Vine Getting Close To RatPac Dune Library Deal Worth Near $300 Million?

  • Deadline
Exclusive: In a year full of big deals, it looks like the last one might be the imminent sale of the RatPac Dune library. Sources said that Vine Alternative Investments, which last year bought a controlling interest in Village Roadshow and acquired the Manchester Film Library, has moved into the lead and should be heading toward closing a deal. Sources said the bidding has gotten up to the $290 million to $300 million range. The one hiccup is that Warner Bros reserved the right to match, but the bidding here went well above the $250 million sources said the library was expected to fetch.

There were multiple bidders in the mix here, for a package of 76 films that includes minority ownership stakes in Gravity, Wonder Woman, Batman V Superman, The Lego Movie, Creed, Annabelle, Godzilla, American Sniper, Mad Max: Fury Road, It and Dunkirk. The whole library was put on the auction block last month.

The Ultimate 2019 Film Preview

2018 is fast approaching its cinematic conclusion, which means that attention is inevitably shifting to 2019. This year appeared to be the year of the musical with The Greatest Showman, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Bohemian Rhapsody, and A Star is Born all raking in the cash. It was also a good year for Marvel as both Black Panther and The Avengers: Infinity Wars triumphed. The year is not over yet, however, with Aquaman, Bumblebee, and Mary Poppins Returns all releasing in time to take advantage of Christmas cinema-goers. But whilst 2018 might seem to have been a strong year for cinema, 2019 looks set to knock it out of the park. Don’t believe us? Take a look at our handy 2019 guide for all the proof you need.

Robin Hood is the biggest box office bomb of the year

Lionsgate served up the biggest turkey of the year over the Thanksgiving weekend, with the Taron Egerton-headlined Robin Hood grossing just $22.8 million around the world in its first five days of release.

The $100 million-budgeted film, directed by Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders), finds itself in the unenviable position of being the biggest box office bust of the year for any film with a budget in excess of $90 million.

Robin Hood did face plenty of competition at the box office, with Ralph Breaks the Internet and Creed II debuting strong in the U.S. and the likes of Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Bohemian Rhapsody still going strong.

Barring a miracle, Robin Hood is on track to become the biggest flop since Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which grossed $148.7 million worldwide last year from a $175 million budget.

‘Robin Hood': The Biggest Blockbuster Bomb of 2018

  • The Wrap
‘Robin Hood': The Biggest Blockbuster Bomb of 2018
Lionsgate’s “Robin Hood” is turning out to be this year’s biggest blockbuster bomb, with a $14 million five-day opening against a budget of just under $100 million.

This year’s Thanksgiving weekend has provided the most lucrative box office ever. But even with all the record-breaking success, there have been some failures in 2018. Most of those bombs, like Paramount’s “Annihilation” and Fox’s “The Darkest Minds,” have had low-to-mid-level budgets that have reduced how much of a financial hit their studios have taken.

With a global launch of just $22.8 million, “Robin Hood” has had the worst start for any film this year with a budget of $90 million or higher. It’s another flop on top of several for Lionsgate, including the sci-fi film “Kin” ($9.9 million grossed against a $30 million budget), and the Kate McKinnon/Mila Kunis spy comedy “The Spy Who Dumped Me” ($75 million/$40 million budget). So far this year,

‘Creed II,’ ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Set Record Thanksgiving Preview Grosses
With four films hitting theaters nationwide early for Thanksgiving weekend, Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet and MGM’s Creed II both came out of their corners swinging. The Wreck-it-Ralph sequel earned $3.8 million from Tuesday night previews, and Creed II was just behind it with $3.7 million. Both numbers amount to the best showings for Thanksgiving previews ever.

The preview for Ralph Breaks the Internet surpasses Disney’s other recent Thanksgiving releases, including Coco ($2.3 million) and Moana ($2.6 million). As with all family releases, this sequel to Wreck-It Ralph is expected to make the majority of its grosses from matinee and weekend screenings. It’s projected for a $68-75 million five-day opening, up from the $49 million three-day opening of its 2012 predecessor.

As for Creed II, its predecessor also opened on Thanksgiving weekend in 2015 and earned $1.4 million from Tuesday previews and went on to earn a $42 million five day opening and a $109.7 million domestic run.

Robin Hood (2018) – Review

So, do you think movie fans will escape the holiday shopping mania for some good old-fashioned swashbuckling? What, you think most of them never “buckled a swash”. Well, not for a couple of years or so when King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword was the first of several box office duds of Summer 2016. But why give it another go? From many reports, it appears that another movie company wants to set up its own “universe”, much like Marvel Studios. But they and Warner/DC have all those known superheroes, Disney’s got their animated classics to remake in live-action, and Universal’s monster legacy started and ended with the Tom Cruise Mummy. Since there are loads of secret agents, why not go back to the old legends (plus they’re in the public domain). It’s been eight years since Ridley Scott tried to start a new medieval franchise with

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Set to Lead Overstuffed Thanksgiving Box Office
The Grinch” and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” are about to get a lot of company at movie theaters nationwide this Thanksgiving weekend. Four wide releases will be hitting theaters, with Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” expected to top the charts for the lucrative five-day holiday period.

Disney is projecting a five-day launch for the “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel of around $68 million, while independent trackers are looking at an opening of approximately $72 million. That would be a big step up from the $49 million three-day opening that “Wreck-It Ralph” made back in March 2012.

But it’s very possible that “Ralph” could overperform. Interest in the film has been high since Disney released a trailer featuring Sarah Silverman’s Vanellope von Schweetz meeting the Disney Princesses, and Fandango reported that presales for the film on their site are beating those of Disney’s 2016 Thanksgiving release “Moana,” which had an $82 million five-day opening.

Hollywood loves money: Here is Why!

The movie business seems quite glamorous from an audience point of view. Celebrities get to walk the red carpet, attend high graced events like the Oscars and generally get to enjoy the life. At least somewhere in our lives we all wanted to be an actor.

There are a good many movies which are produced every year. Hollywood ensures that big budgeted movies get to hit the box office. For instance in 2017 the highest grossed film was Star Wars: Episode 8 which garnered about $1.7 billion.

If you are into Betway88 online home entertainment, you would know just how important the entertainment industry is today.
