Oh yayyy.... the neverending conveyor belt of Illumination animated junkfood continues. At least 'Pets 2' is postponed for a little bit. As much as I am a JP fan and to a certain extent a fan of a lot of Universal's live action films and oldschool animation, Illumination does nothing for me as far as making me like Universal goes. At least most studios under Disney or WB brings something different or enjoyable to table.

I actually Sing. It was just popcorn entertainment centered around popular music, but it wasn't that awful. Despicable Me 3 also has me intrigued if only to see Trey Parker do something non-South Park. Minions 2 on the other hand.....no, just no. Secret Life of Pets was an ok movie, it worked off the basic Toy Story premise a lot of films do. A sequel sounds like a terrible idea though.

A Scarface reboot with Leonardo DiCaprio and Sofia Vergara will come out sometime this year.

It won't have the same feel like the original one had. That one was brutal, hardcore, and violent as hell. I just don't see how they can even come close in this age of PC.

Not to mention the fact that Sofia Vergara can't act. DiCaprio would be a solid choice were it up to me, but not with a non-actress like her.

They should have gotten J Lo. I know that she's been in some really crappy movies the last 15 years, but she is still a respectable actress who can put up a good performance.

Yeah, even J-Lo is a better candidate than Vergara. At least she can act, and like Affleck could greatly benefit from a revival of sorts.

i wonder if this Scarface reboot will have DiCaprio as a similar but differently-named character? 'cuz remember, Scarface with Al Pacino was itself a remake of an earlier film and Tony Montana wasn't in the first one, it was a different character named Tony Camonte

I remember seeing the Scarface for the very first time back when I was 14 or 15. I was blown away, literary by the violence and carnage and the brutality. The cocaine scene where Tony Montana sniffs his own drugs, I learned that was real via radio shows and "I Love The 80's" on VH1. Seeing that scene the whole way through...WOW.

I have never seen a movie like that since Apocalypse Now and even then the carnage had some point to it. Scarface was carnage for the sake of it, or at least it seemed like it to me at the time and to its credit, it worked.

TDM--Watch BASEketball if you want something Trey Parker...or Team America. Razz


As for Scarface, disappointed it isn't based on the original. lol Hard to do a better version of the 80s one.


Also Javier Bardem should have been Montana not DiCaprio. Especially if his sister is supposed to be Vergara... There are Cubans that look like Leo but they usually don't have sisters that look like Vergara then.


Osh--they might as well just do a new story then as well. As the original was based on Al Capone. Obviously Montana wasn't and if they change it further...well...

Ouch...Ben Affleck's recent movie 'Live By Night' is a $75 million dollar loss.

That's as much as GB 2016 lost. That's gotta hurt. To be fair, I heard that most of it is WB's fault for making the movie shorter...The exact same problem that Batman vs. Superman had.

WB is starting to really lapse into their late 90s phase. But instead of everything being about selling toys, it's about optimizing box office by shortening their films, often at the expense of the film's actual quality. The result; box office disappointment. After over ten years of respectability at the box office and with critics, they can't seem to catch a break. And they only have themselves to blame.

They really needed Legendary more then what we originally thought. It's as if they forgot what happened to put themselves in the position in the first place.

Passengers might break even, but it's going to be hard. I'm amazed that it's been out for this long.

Cant wait to hear Jennifer Lawerence complain about something as to why it flopped.

What movie/s is she in this year? Because I'm not aware of any movie she stars in for 2017. I know that Chris Pratt is going to more then make up for it with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this year. Add in JW2/JP5 next year, and this is just a small bump in the road.

Only thing IMDB has her listed in is something called Red Sparrow and an untitled project that's in post production. Nothing that really stands out.

Just 2 movies this year for her? I thought she'd be in 3-5 movies. I know her stock has dropped the last 3 years, but she's still held in high regard in Hollywood.

Can you imagine how weird, and possibly even plain wrong, it would have felt to have Miles Teller in Ryan Gosling's place? I don't want to come across as needlessly throwing shade on the guy, but he's not an actor I can see playing the sort of character Gosling played.

I saw the trailer and I can tell that Ryan Gosling was the far superior choice for the movie. I honestly think that Emma Watson could have pulled it off though.

Sony said it's American movie branch lost a $962 million dollars.

After reading this, it looks like Paul Feig's comment about his failed GB2016 reboot needing $500 million dollars to be successful was right after all.

I wasn't 100% certain at first, but now I'm getting a strong suspicion that Sony will start to properly consider selling their film divisions to a more responsible corporation or successful studio by the end of this year.

It's safe to say that the merging of the video game division with the movie division was probably just a random idea which wasn't serious that somehow went public. And even if it was, the backlash when it went out forced Sony to cancel that idea.

Despite my love of science fiction, I have not gotten around to reading even the first Dune novel, and despite being aware of the David Lynch film it didn't stand out to me as a quintessential 80s genre favourite that I needed to see. But that isn't to say I won't see it, maybe I will out of curiosity; but the book will find its way on my reading list soon I hope.

It will be interesting to see how Legendary is able to create interest in a modern Dune adaptation, but with Denis Villeneuve it appears to be in great hands! And if Blade Runner 2049 proves to be a hit, then everyone will be all the more confident in it's chances of success.

You know, every time I feel like Warner Bros are making themselves to be the biggest screw-ups on the block, Sony politely comes around to remind me that they are the biggest bunch of bunglers to fund a major motion picture. That's something to appreciate at any rate.
