'Fast and Furious 7' hasn't made a lot of noise lately, even though it starts shooting this fall and is scheduled to hit theaters next July. We don't even know if Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be done filming 'Hercules' in time to appear in the film. But we have just gotten the first big new casting news, as UFC star Ronda Rousey is in negotiations to join the cast.
Though 'Pacific Rim' may be touted as one of the bigger disappointments of summer based on its domestic gross, it looks like international has saved the film and then some. After opening on Wednesday in China to the tune of nine million dollars, 'Pacific Rim 2' talk is back on.
It's been almost a year since Len Wiseman was announced as the director of the new version of 'The Mummy,' and there hasn't been much news about the project since. So it's no surprise that Wiseman is now off the project, and the producers are looking for another helmer.
To date, books, lives, records, songs, board games, video games, and coupons have served as inspirations for cinema (well, all except for the last one, that was just a 'Mr. Show' sketch). But now memes are joining that list as Grumpy Cat, the internet sensation, has been optioned as the subject for a feature film.
We're at an interesting crossroads for the new wave of young adult literature being adapted for the big screen. Sure, films like 'Twilight' or 'The Hunger Games' have shown that there is a sizable audience for these films, but yesterday's poor opening day showing of 'Beautiful Creatures' suggests that it takes more than just a series of modestly popular books to net a big screen audience. Perhaps author Stephenie Meyer will be enough to get people into the adaptation of her book 'The Host' and here's a new featurette with the author talking about the film.
Though Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' hit screens mere hours ago, it's already on track to have the highest opening weekend of any picture to open in December. That's right, it's on track to open bigger than 'Avatar.'
As if video game nostalgia weren't enough to get audiences into the theater, 'Wreck-it Ralph,' which opens November 2, has been laying out more and more content to get people excited. The latest are two featurettes that highlight the making of the film, and the voice cast, which includes John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch.
