Despite the fact that the next movie directed of Terminator will be Justin Lin, resource Wired Magazine presented two views on the possible development of the franchise, made by the director and producer Paul VS Anderson and producer and writer Damon Lindelof.
"I would have focused on the events that follow the "Judgment Day" and combined the epic battle for the future with a history of ongoing in our time, as in the first two films, which were clever and entertaining. "
"I would not change the place of - California. Sun, palm trees, colorful shopping arcade - the perfect backdrop for the strike. This place should not be sinister. I do not need pompous superheroes who defend the destiny of the world."
"I want to see it through the eyes of ordinary people. If I can return to the Arnold this will be my advantage. It is a brand, no one can climb into his skin. But the new, relevant history of the characters, are also needed."
"The best thing in the Terminator, that, it is designed to penetrate into society. I would have built his narrative around that his abilities. You'd have to guess who the robot, and someone - a man. This would be consistent with the style of "Western world".
"But the emphasis in the film would be made on the battle, which I never saw in the first four pictures. Imagine a field of tens of thousands of Terminators - not giant robots of Transformers and Terminator endoskeleton with life-size - ready to battle against all of humanity, as it was in "The Lord of the Rings." It will be spectacular and awful at the same time".
Damon Lindelof ("Lost", "Star Trek", "Cowboys and Aliens", "Prometheus").
“The subject of gloomy, depressive, futuristic apocalypse has outlived itself. Pretty cars, travel around the human skull. We need a COMEDY. Look at the "Hangover" and "Hangover 2". Can you imagine the fees of these movies if there were robots? And, as we admire the work of Arnold, why not combine the Terminator comic with wonderful works of Arnold Schwarzenegger? "
"We were clearly able to be rated PG-13, since no one in the movie will not smoke, but when a child gets shot in the face, we remove the frame in accordance with the classical canons."
About Pixar Animation Studios abilities from year to year please their fans with wonderful projects we can make legends, yet with such fecundity always give the highest quality of work is not given to everyone. Even when it comes to the sequel to an already much-vaunted animated film, the creators managed to exceed the original in all respects. But unfortunately, not this time.
In order to increase the popularity of alternative energy sources in Europe, it has been organized the World Grand Prix, in which all participants must be tucked in biofuels, thus abandoning the traditional gasoline. Our old friends Lightning McQueen and his faithful friend Maitre, of course, will take part in this competition. True, none of them guess that in the end, because of this trip to Europe, they will be involved in a sinister spy plot. Now old friends have not only to confront a gang of "buckets on wheels", but also test the strength of their friendship...
By its plot, "Cars 2" is very different from the original, making a strong bias towards the spyware detective, gradually moving away from the usual racing competition. Of course, the race is still plays an important role for history, but certainly not major. They are only coming out for the background to the foreground spy line, which, in turn, has been very dynamic and swirling. There is even traditional espionage genre with "unexpected ending," which perhaps someone may seem predictable, but certainly not the kids, for which has been oriented this cartoon.
From the new characters, in principle, I can’t notice someone special, except that the driver of Formula 1 and the main competitor of McQueen on the track - Francesco Bernoulli. This is probably the most charismatic character in the cartoon, as spies Holly and Finn assistants of Maitre are a little bit fresh and not very entertaining.
About the visuals, there is also nothing to say something special, because everything here is perfectly expectable. Very colorful water (in the 3D-glasses looks awesome), mobile facial expressions of characters, bright explosions of adrenaline and action-packed scenes under the appropriate soundtrack combine to form on the screen stunner. It is not to find fault.
In short, the "Cars 2" is fine for fun. The main thing is not to expect from it the testimony, and the depth of previous creations of Pixar, because from this position cartoon looks not so advantageous. It is funny and cheerful, but not deep in all senses.
1). Despite the fact that the shooting of novels "The Hobbit" by Tolkien's novel, already underway, and director Pitter Jackson continues to argue for important roles of the actors. Luke Evans will play the Bard Archer, while Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Sherlock Holmes in the eponymous TV series, the will sound dragon Smaug.
Bard Archer by Tolkien – a Girion’s descendant, the last king of Dale. After the city was destroyed in an attack by the dragon Smaug, the family fled to Giriona Esgarot where Bard went on to become a simple city guard. Famous for his ability to shoot straight and his intuition. He has killed the dragon, during a campaign with Bilbo and Dwarves at the Lonely Mountain.
Luke Evans's character will be revealed in the second film and will become a hero analog Viggo Mortensen in the trilogy "The Lord of the Rings." The actor is recently in demand not only at home in the UK but in America. In the near future, Evans can be seen in the role of Aramis in the "Musketeers", as well as the role of Zeus in the "Immortals".
Dragon Smaug, who is the main enemy in the "Hobbit" will be a computer character, who will present his facial expressions and voice Benedict Cumberbatch. Interestingly, the actor has been involved in the project dubbed dark magician Necromancer. Rumors about the involvement of Bill Nighty as the voice of Smaug are not confirmed.
2). Story by Rick Riordan's first novel in the series about Percy Jackson, the scion of a Greek god, has received many negative reviews of critics and gathered at the box office $ 226 million now receive a sequel. The director of the new sequel will be Thor Fredental.
On account of the director is an unexpected comedy hit "Diary of a wimpy kid." Also, the director filmed the painting "Hotel for Dogs", so there are no doubts about his ability to make family movies.
Fox studio yet officially launched the continuation of the "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" in production, as unknown, whether will back Logan Lerman, who played the main character.
Rick Riordan cycle "Percy Jackson and the Olympians," began in 2005. The second book titled "Percy Jackson and the sea monsters" was published in 2006. In it the hero goes in search of his friend, the satyr Grover, who was trapped for Cyclops Polyphemus. As a result, will not only save Grover, but the whole camp in which live children of the gods.
The script continuation write authors of horror "1408", Scott Alexander and Larry Karatsevski.
Movie with Benicio Del Toro, which was released last year, could acquire a sequel, but eventually the current scenario will turn into a painting titled "Werewolf", which will be actually a restart of another "Wolf Man" of forties.
Classic horror movie with one of the monsters of "Universal" on the idea was to form the basis of the picture, Joe Johnston, but the result, the authors strongly deviated from the original. Was it cause of the low box office - is unknown. Tape with Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins has collected in the U.S. hire only 61.9 million dollars, while its total cash in the world amounted to 142.2 million.
Remake of Universal classic gothic long way toward the viewer. Director Mark Romanek, at some stage left the area, citing the fact that he is not calculated the force, and such big-budget project does not raise. As a result, the film was shooting by Joe Johnston, the budget has grown to 150 million, and the date of release was constantly postponed.
The studio hadn’t franchise, at least to continue the failed at the box office movie at the rare case when it became a hit on video. But about the existence of the sequel script Universal has taken care in advance. They hired Michael Tabby, one of the authors of horror film "Ring around the Rosie". Now his work will be rewritten in the spirit of the original film with Lon Chaney.
Larry Talbot, the hero of the horror film "Wolf Man" in 1941, returned to the family estate and became a victim of creature, which can’t exist in reality. Turning into a wolf Larry can’t control himself and that the worst will never be able to be with his girlfriend.
The shooting of "Werewolf" is planned for this fall. In the near future they will find the director and performers of the main roles.
In order to start the development of the third film in the series "The Hangover," from Warner took more time to think, rather than in the case of a sequel. Continued it was decided to withdraw before the premiere of the original, whereas the third film gave the green light only this week.
On Monday, the world's box-office of film "Hangover II" crossed the mark of $200 million. Yet not a single comedy failed to collect such money in such a short period of time.
Warner has begun preparing for the third film by searching for a screenwriter. The first thing the studio turned to Craig Mazin – one of the authors of a sequel. On account of Mazin is comedy "Senseless", "Scary Movie" (third and fourth) and "Superhero Movie". Negotiations have begun with screenwriter, but the details of the plot, of course, will be kept confidential.
Director Todd Phillips in his interviews has repeatedly noted that he has ideas for the third picture. The concept remains the same: the heroes Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis at the bachelor party and get drunk in the morning cannot remember what happened to them. Since the actors have not yet signed contracts, but most likely it is a matter of time.
Note that the budget for the sequel was almost twice the original. "Hangover" cost the studio $ 35 million and brought together the world's 467 million. The second film was worth 80 million. Moreover, the project was in jeopardy because of the requirements of the actors to raise fees. Cooper, Galifianakis and Helms got together for the first "Hangover" is less than 1 million for three. They thankfully, the studio did not sign them to continue, so that after the incredible success of the original guys could haggle.
Warner showed a hefty short-sightedness, signing an agreement with the trio only for a sequel. Given the huge fees of the first rolling weekend, the appetites of the actors can easily become even greater. However, this issue will become a headache only for the studio bosses.
With the decline of the franchise "Shrek," which brought full-length animation to a whole new level, the film studio DreamWorks Animation has just obliged to find it an adequate replacement. Otherwise, its leading position in this segment of the film industry very soon would be put under doubt. With the release of the animated film "Kung Fu Panda" there was hope that a new successful combination of flawless animation and utterly devoid of humor, vulgarity was found. The second part cartoon confirmed: in front of us the franchise, managed to raise the banner of DreamWorks even higher.
It is difficult to describe all the advantages of "Kung Fu Panda 2", while not being desperate spoilers. The animation of the highest class is so closely intertwined with a brilliant script that dissect these two ingredients that distinguish the animated masterpiece of mediocrity, separately is quite impossible.
In the case of a panda named Poe we are dealing with this hurricane action, organic and sometimes quite suddenly passing in touching the staging, which in turn disrupted really funny jokes.
In any other animated movie so much pathos not diluted so successfully, as in "Kung Fu Panda 2."
Characters of the cartoon have been deepened. Almost all the main characters appear "past" in some of these mysteries, and some, like the praying mantis, even bored for her second half, which in the heat of passion tradition bites the male's head. Even minor villains magicians from DreamWorks Animation able to give stories and experiences that led them from the category of expenditure weight and forced some to empathize them.
As for the notorious stereoscopy, it is absolutely flawless, and justifies all the possible extra charges on tickets. "Kung Fu Panda 2" - is that rare project that is absolutely no room detractors stereoscopic revolution in the cinema once again contemptuously wrinkling his nose. What was lacking in "Pirates of the Caribbean 4" - depth of the projection, the competent work of the "camera" during filming of battle scenes and demonstrate the scale of what is happening - it's all there in the continuation of the history of Poe and his associates.
In short, "pandamania", which began in 2008, took more animated space in the current year, and threatens us all the inevitable sequel. In any case, it is clearly hinted at the last shots of "Kung Fu Panda 2."
According to insiders of website Deadline, as soon as JJ Abrams will be announced director sequel "Star Trek". True, the director for all his desire is not be able to release a picture of the planned release date June 29, 2012, so that Paramount is considering moving the premiere in December 2012.
Maintain the participation of Abrams to date are in the category "rumors", but a desire to move the release date is quite natural. Hollywood in recent years provides less and less time on the production of costly projects that affect the quality of graphics - see the recent problems with the "Green Lantern". "Star Trek 2" today exists as a 70-page treatment, that is, in fact, the movie has not a normal scenario. Roberto Orci, Damon Lindelof and Alex Kurtzman are waiting for JJ Abrams.
"We are waiting for Jay Jay will have time to read our story - says Orsi. - We need to listen to all of his recommendations to the story before we continue. As soon as he gives go-ahead, we will instantly finish the script. So far we have painted a detailed story on 70 pages. Each of us was busy on another project".
Kurtzman leaned in the direction and removes the drama "Welcome to the people." Orci worked on "Cowboys vs. Aliens" and is now preparing "Ender's Game" for Gavin Hood. Lindelof changed the concept of "Prometheus" by Ridley Scott.
It’s not seemed that trinity spent time working on a sequel "Star Trek". Meanwhile, before the expected release date is 13 months. From an interview with Orci that preparations for the shooting can begin on the existing Treatment. However, given that "Star Trek" - a complex in the production of fiction, such a scenario is unlikely. In addition, the need to work in a hurry over the special effects, will significantly increase the budget.
Therefore, there is a strong possibility that the release will move from the summer of 2012 in December. But as long as Abrams does not wish to shoot "Star Trek 2", Paramount will wait.
Mid-summer of 2012 is generally very popular time. Just recently, the battle unfolded studios Universal and Relativity for withdrawal of their "Snow Whites". Both projects were close after its Universal moved the film with Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart on 1 June. Relativity, whose "Snow White" of Tarsema Sinha with Army Hummer and Lily Collins was supposed to be shown on June 29, after a little reflection changed premiere on March 16.
The founder of Miramax Studios and The Weinstein Company Harvey Weinstein has mentioned in an interview on MTV, that the fifth part of the "Scream" is quite possible, despite weak performance in the American box office of the last picture of franchise.
"I'm sure that Wes Craven will work on sequel. International box office is very good. We will collect more than $ 100 million. Now there are 90, with 5-6 large territories and many smaller ones. We expect to take the bar in 110 million", - said the legendary producer.
Although, in general, he noted that fees could be more, but this result did not become a catastrophe.
"Scream 4" was launched in April 2011 and became the first painting in the saga of a 12-year hiatus. In the center of the story - the main character of the previous tapes Sidney Prescott, returning to her hometown Woodsboro, where there was a series of murders, famous all over the country. Being on a small home in a book promotional tour, Sidney with her appearance is prompting a new wave of murders.
The previous three "Scream" once became hits. The first two series have overcome in the U.S. box office cash bar in a hundred million dollars, charges of trilogy stopped at around 89 million. But given the modest budget, combined with worldwide total sales charges result of the tape also looks quite impressive.
Restarting of movie about tireless journalist Fletch finds the first shape: the movie picked up a screenwriter. Them became the author of "Eurotrip" and "Cat" David Mandel. In addition, he is known for his work on the series "Saynfild" and show "Saturday Night Live."
Fletch for the first time appeared in the second book of Gregory McDonald's in 1974. The novel won several genre awards, and became the first in a series of 12 books devoted to this hero. Screen adaptation of Michael Ritchie was released in 1985, the central role has played Chevy Chase. His hero is writing a report about a beach drug trafficking, but accidentally received a proposal for a big sum to kill a terminally ill businessman who decided to take this step on his own. Trying to understand what is behind this affair, Fletch finds out about a major scam, which started his employer. The film became one of the most popular and recognizable in the career of Chevy Chase, and the comedian calls this image his favorite one.
In 1989, on the screens has out the sequel, only the tape has not been linked thematically with any of the books of Gregory McDonald. Fletch received an inheritance from his aunt, consisting of a dilapidated mansion with a black clerk in addition. Since the arrival of the hero him is constantly trying to kill, and local movers and shakers trying to buy the land belonging to Fletch for the sum is clearly divergent with real value.
The third movie about a character "Fletch won", unlike its predecessor is still being the screen version of McDonald's, trying to break through to the screens since the early 2000's, when a project had been secured by Chevy Chase and Kevin Smith as a director.
After, both filmmakers left the project. For a long time among the contenders for the role were Zach Braff and Jason Lee.
1). Star of TV series "Knight Rider" and "Baywatch" and in 1980 a successful singer David Hasselhoff will play in the sequel to "Piranhas". Prior to his presence in the project also confirmed by Gary Busey.
A remake of Joe Dante's movie "Piranha," shot by Alexander Azha, was released in August 2010 and became a hit, collecting $80 million in $25 million budget.
The movie was about the incident on Lake Victoria. The earthquake woke the sleeping soundly very ancient and bloodthirsty piranhas. Their first victim is a fisherman in the performance stars "Jaws" Richard Dreyfuss.
The popularity of painting so inspired the producers that they have announced the launch of the sequel a few days after the start of the film in worldwide box office. Instead Azha has been appointed Frenchman director of the film trilogy, the author of "Jaws" John Gulazher. Producer Mark Canton did not preclude the appearance of characters, it would seem, had eaten in the first film in the sequel, the story will focus on water park Wilderness Waters, which also got carnivorous fish.
The world premiere of tape is scheduled for September.
2). Playwright and author of the film "In Bruges" Martin McDonagh picked up the actor's team for his new project "Seven psychopaths". Starring in the film is played by Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke.
Farrell will embody the image of a writer who is in search of inspiration for his text "Seven psychopaths." Eventually he gets involved in a scam to the abduction of dogs with his eccentric friends (Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken). And one of the animals they manage to steal from a local mafioso (Mickey Rourke). It is noteworthy that the star of "The Wrestler" and the second "Iron Man" is famous for his devotion to the dogs.
Among other projects of Rourke is the sequel to "The Expendables" in which actor dies on the job, and the plot will revolve around rescue his daughter.
For Farrell and McDonagh this will be the second joint work experience after Bruges. The director has won an Oscar in the Best Short Film at the tape "Full clip". Producers of "Psychopaths" advocate Graham Broadbent, Peter Chernin, Tessa Ross and Meghan Allison.
