David O. Russell Loses the Map to Drake’s Fortune | CHUD.com (http://www.chud.com/54463/david-o-russell-loses-the-map-to-drakes-fortune/)


El Mayimbe of Latino Review says directors bail in 3s…so while we wait for that elusive third helmer to bail on something big, you can read this one!

According to Variety, David O. Russell has left Drake’s Fortune over “creative differences.” There are no further details at this time, so we don’t know if the tenative and unpopular cast — led by Mark Wahlberg — leaves with him.

Russell was an incredibly contentious choice for director. Fans of the Uncharted series have been screaming about him for months, while fans of The Fighter pointed it was David O. goddamn Russell, and he deserved the benefit of the doubt. Even if that meant Mark Wahlberg, and a strange father/son/uncle dynamic with Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci.

It never did seem to fit right, though, even if you’re a big fan of Russell and wanted to see him tackle something geeky and genre oriented. This feels like the inevitable outcome.

Maybe Nathan Fillion will get to read for the part this time.

In a recent Q&A with the Guardian, the actor made no secret about the ill will he held toward the film. Here’s what he had to say, quite succinctly:

What is the worst job you’ve done?
Super Mario Brothers.

What has been your biggest disappointment?
Super Mario Brothers.

If you could edit your past, what would you change?
I wouldn’t do Super Mario Brothers.

Sony Takes Screen Rights to ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Video Game Series | /Film (http://www.slashfilm.com/sony-developing-assassins-creed-film/)


Looks like Sony has won the dubious honor of being able to produce and distribute a film based on the UbiSoft video game series Assassin’s Creed.

The games feature a lot of running along rooftops, pushing through crowds and tracking powerful targets before driving a knife in their back. There’s even a sci-fi component as the bulk of the action in each game is actually the recreation of ancestral memories buried within a guy who is related to the line of assassins the player controls in the series. The presentation in each game is undeniably cinematic, but as with most games the action doesn’t directly translate to cinema. But there is a story there that could be adapted into a movie, and one that would make sense in context with the various Assassin’s Creed game titles.



Have not played this but there certainly looks like there is enough to stretch into a decent movie.

NEED FOR SPEED Trailer. NEED FOR SPEED Stars Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper | Collider (http://collider.com/need-for-speed-movie-trailer/)


DreamWorks has released the first trailer for director Scott Waugh’s (Act of Valor) video game adaptation Need for Speed. The film chronicles a cross-country race against time as a blue-collar mechanic (Aaron Paul) who was framed for manslaughter by a wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver (Dominic Cooper) sets out for revenge in a high-stakes underground racing tournament. Judging by the trailer, Need for Speed is almost the opposite of what I expected. I assumed it would simply try to rival the Fast & Furious movies, and instead it looks far more dramatic. There’s no rule that an adaptation of a video game can’t be serious, and the car stuff looks good. Consider me interested.



I really want Aaron Paul to do well post BB.

KingInTheWest
September 25th, 2013, 09:15 PM
Just because it has that music it is dramatic? That is only less ridiculous than The Fast And The Furious movies because a third grader playing with Matchbox cars and dinosaur toys could come up with a less ludicrous storyline and action sequences than a The Fast And The Furious movie.

If we were to make a Zelda title, if we had interest in doing that, I think really what would be most important to us is to be able to play with the format of a movie, make it more interactive, like you’re able to take your 3DS into the theater and that leads you into participating in it somehow. We wouldn’t want to make it the same as any other movie. We want to somehow change what a movie is.

Marion Cotillard Reteaming with Michael Fassbender for ASSASSIN’S CREED Movie
http://collider.com/assassins-creed-movie-marion-cotillard/

Wow. Some pedigree for a video game flick.

KingInTheWest
February 14th, 2015, 02:20 AM
Assassin's Creed is actually one of the very few video games they could make a decent movie out of. An inventive premise that is not too outlandish (well, the precursor stuff is a little crazy but it mostly works), great action, interweaving with historical events, fantastic villains.

It lends itself to infinite possibilities if they want to go with a completely original story, or they can use Ezio from Assassin's Creed II, one of the better games I had ever played and one of the few where I actually really cared about the story. It probably would work best if it stayed completely in the past - having someone take a seat in a dentist's chair and take a nap might come off a little hokey and only so much of a two hour movie could be devoted to Desmond or his equivalent. The dude using the Animus was never the most interesting part of the game, especially the first one when Desmond couldn't do anything and the last few with the unnamed first-person guys.

Dwayne Johnson Reveals ‘Rampage’ Details, Proves That He is the Busiest Human Being Alive (http://www.slashfilm.com/dwayne-johnson-rampage-movie-2/)


Johnson revealed that Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal, the creators of the new television show Colony, have been hired to pen a new draft of Rampage. Cuse is perhaps best known for his work on Lost and Bates Motel, but he also wrote San Andreas, the disaster movie where he somehow resisted the temptation to write a scene where the Rock literally punches an earthquake.

Since Johnson mentions spending time at the San Diego Wildlife Preserve and hanging out with anti-poaching units in Africa, we can safely assume that he’ll be an animal expert called in to take down the creatures going on that titular rampage.

‘Warcraft’ Invades International Box Office, Sets Records in China
http://collider.com/warcraft-box-office-record-china/


While poor reviews have some analysts convinced that Duncan Jones’ Warcraft adaptation will fail to rise above $30 million in its opening weekend here at home, the fantasy video game film is invading international box offices with gusto. In fact, the film is already setting records in one of the world’s biggest markets: China, where an estimated 10 million “World of Warcraft” fans are expected to turn out to see this big-screen spectacle.

Warcraft might not win the opening frame in the States this weekend, since New Line’s The Conjuring 2 and Lionsgate’s Now You See Me 2 opening, along with a second frame for Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, but perhaps a round of sequelitis will hit movie-going audiences, making them more eager to seek out the big, bold fantasy epic. That’s certainly the hope, but with China clearing the way for a big box office performance, the domestic performance might not be the end all, be all.

I want to see this even though I am not a gamer. Kingsqueen on the other hand...well, I may have to wait and see by myself. Yeah, I think the embargo is still in effect review wise, but a few have leaked out and they haven't been kind. Blizzard seems to know what they are doing, so I think if you get the core fanbase...and maybe 50% of the others, well...by no means will that be great, but it looks like U.S. Box Office may be irrelevant. Further shifting studio priorities to the overseas territories.
Just based on all I have seen so far, this looks like one of those simple sword and sorcery concepts that really didn't need a director like Duncan Jones. But I will hold off until I see it. Besides, Moon is really Jones' only good work so far. So that may have been a fluke. 4 years though...visually, this better be spectacular.

Besides, Moon is really Jones' only good work so far. So that may have been a fluke. 4 years though...visually, this better be spectacular.

I think one of the main reasons he was on it is because of his fandom. He's been a fan of the franchise for so long and, according to the folks I know, he nailed the aesthetic of the game and world. One person, who works at Blizzard and on the game (and is way low on the totem pole so it's not like Aykroyd pimping the new Ghostbusters) said she was so happy to see the world she's worked and played in brought to life.

I think you're right about the simple sword and sorcery thing. Some reviews (that didn't like it) said it had the weight of movies like Krull or Dragonslayer from the 80's so, take that for what it's worth. If you're going in looking for Lord of the Rings storytelling, you might be disappointed. If you're looking for some simple fare that looks cool, you might enjoy it a whole lot. If you played the game for a decent amount of time, you're likely to love it.

‘Warcraft’ Review: Summoning Ambivalence
http://collider.com/warcraft-movie-review/


I feel conflicted about Duncan Jones’ Warcraft. On the one hand, it’s a movie that comes off as bloated, loaded down with exposition, and constantly trying to service too many characters while ultimately serving almost none of them. And yet it’s also a film that left me wanting more. Jones’ ambition sucks us in with his unabashed high fantasy world building. Warcraft is a film that is loaded with problems, and yet I couldn’t help but admire what it was trying to accomplish...
...I wouldn’t go so far to call Warcraft a good movie. It’s crushed under its own ambition, and yet that ambition is highly admirable in the same way as films like John Carter where it might not work, but it earns points just for being bold and different in an increasingly homogenized landscape. And while Warcraft suffers from throwing too much at the audience, I would happily return for a sequel, assuming it’s more focused.

Rating: C

Ok, in my mind, this is a good review. Especially referencing John Carter, because that movie is so much better than people are willing to admit.

Ok, in my mind, this is a good review. Especially referencing John Carter, because that movie is so much better than people are willing to admit.

A lot of the complaints sound viable because, after talking to more friends who saw it already, there's a lot of stuff in there that fans of the game/world will grasp pretty easy which could make the story a little easier in flow and context. Non-fans might find it, as the review said, bloated.

But hey, you can ask me questions and I can help answer them. :)

Also, here are some thoughts from people that saw it with some context of their positions:

@ManMadeMoon Thank you for such a wonderful film. I am looking forward to seeing it many times to take in all the details. (Blizzard employee)

All of Blizzard is buzzing with adoration for the #WarcraftMovie (http://letsgokings.com/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=WarcraftMovie) today, and my heart is full. Thank you, @ManMadeMoon ��❤️ (Blizzard Social Media Manager)

I can't even begin to describe how much I loved Warcraft. (Casual friend who LOVED Fury Road. Called this his favorite movie of the year so far.)

Thank you @ManMadeMoon @Blizzard_Ent @Legendary for an awesome movie and the time of my life! (invited to the premiere as a community member of note)

There's more but those are just a couple. Like I said, fans of the game/world will probably enjoy it a lot. People who aren't in it...hit or miss probably.

Just got back. Have to say, I absolutely loved it. Granted, I'm the target audience so I'm sure it was colored by that, but I'm not quite sure what movie the critics were watching. It's not groundbreaking. It's not high art. It's just a bunch of fun with swords and magic.

I will say that I can see how people might get a little confused with who people are, what's going on, some context...but the information is out there if you want to know more about the characters. LOTS of information out there in fact.

Basically, give it a shot. You might like it.

I hope my response up there did not sound too harsh, because Firefly Nathan Fillion was indeed the perfect Nathan Drake. Too bad they never got around to making this happen. No to Chris Pratt (I am tired of his ubiquitousness even before he is fully ubiquitous) and probably no to the dude from Supernatural, who is kind of tiny and I have no idea can even play a different character. Entrapment Catherine Zeta is also an inspired Chloe choice, but 2016 Zeta is 47.

No idea what younger actor could be Drake. Miles Teller is also too tiny. The Fasscumberhiddle is probably too Euro, but maybe the Hiddle form of it. Renner?

‘Assassin’s Creed’ Review: Your Destiny is Bleak and Unmoving
http://collider.com/assassins-creed-review/


Minus the material with Aguilar and Maria, Assassin’s Creed operates in cruise control. A similar sequence of events happens over and over again, and all you can do is just sit back and look at the pretty picture. And yes, Assassin’s Creed often does look fantastic, especially the costume design and the chase sequences that take place in the 15th Century. But all the riveting roof-top running and hand-to-hand combat in the world won’t make a movie worthwhile if you don’t give a damn about the characters.

Grade: C

Hurm. Sounds like another movie I have seen recently...hint hint...rhymes with Bar Whores

Here’s Johnson’s text from the Instagram post:

I head up an anti poaching unit out of Rwanda. My best friend is a rare albino gorilla named, George. Very bad people infect George, an alligator and a wolf with a serum. All three animals grow at an unprecedented rate. Their size, speed, agility and violent aggression is off the charts. They go on a deadly rampage and want to destroy the world. George not happy. Me not happy. When animals like you, they lick you. When they don’t like you, they kill you. I will hunt down the bad people who did this to my best friend. And when I find them, I will not lick them.

We have the best VFX monster making team (WETA) on the planet. Our actors and crew have been working very hard to raise the monster genre bar. As always, let’s have some fun. Let’s shoot.

I saw "Tomb Raider" this weekend.

Having not played the recent versions of the game*, I'd say that the movie wasn't phenomenal, but I felt like it worked.

My fear, especially after "Assassin's Creed," was that it'd take itself too seriously. But there was some levity early on that helped set up relationships and made them have some meaning later on. It coulda been a little punchier, but it worked as a movie overall and didn't feel too much like a "video game movie." I'm sure there were scenes lifted right from the game, but they didn't feel forced or otherwise out of joint.

Alicia Vikander was good. Not that anyone would have really questioned her credentials, but she made the character work well. She added something to the role, which was mostly basic franchise startup stuff.



So, anyway, good time. Enjoyed it. If they make more of them, I'd be in.









* I do have the one this one is based on, I think. But have never gotten around to playing it.
