Disney Buys Marvel

Disney Buys Marvel
I woke up to news this morning that Disney had purchased Marvel Entertainment for 4 billion in cash & stock. That definitely came out of left field for me as I didn’t realize Marvel was on the market. The deal would put Disney as the owner of the entire Marvel portfolio, which amounts to over 5000 characters. At this point, the brands appear to be maintained as separate entities. Who knows how things will play out in 5 or 10 years. In specific reference to video games, current development deals such as the ones with Activision, Sega, THQ & Gazillion Entertainment will stay in place...

Amadala & Thor, Sitting In A Tree…

Amadala & Thor, Sitting In A Tree…
Yeah, yeah, I know, the title is a bit corny. But trust me, when you write all day, even the little things bring out the laughter. Anyway, it was announced this morning who will play the love interest in Marvel Comic’s upcoming Thor film (which is being helmed by Kenneth Branagh). Natalie Portman, best known for playing Princess Leia & Luke Skywalker’s mom in the Star Wars saga, has been cast as Jane Foster. For those not familiar with the comics, Foster was a nurse who also was Thor’s first main squeeze. Of course, they will update the character for the film. Our hero will...

Daily TV/Movie Tidbits 05/11/09

The new Star Trek film has had a fantastic opening weekend, bringing in $72.5 million on approximately 7,400 screens. I’m guessing a sequel is pretty much a lock. Keanu Reeves is attached to star in a contemporary retelling of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde for Universal Pictures. Bookmark It Hide Sites

Green Lantern Movie Nets Director And $150 Million

Some new info on the long talked about Green Lantern film. At first, it was looking like a throw-away film, maybe a direct-to-DVD title. But now, it looks like it will be a serious tent pole contender. Looks like Warner Bros will be dropping a cool $150 million into it. In addition to that, they’ve hired Martin Campbell, director of Casino Royale, to direct it. I didn’t see anything about a production schedule, but it does look like they will take their money & invest it overseas as Sydney, Australia will be the shooting location. No word on casting yet either. Technorati Tags: Green Lantern...

Penn, Del Toro & Carrey Are “Stooges”?

I know, I’m a little late posting this. It’s taken me a day to be able to picture these guys as The Three Stooges. To be honest, I still can’t see it. Anyway, in case you haven’t heard, the Farrelly brothers (Dumb & Dumber, Kingpin) wrote a script that will not be a biopic. Instead, it’ll be more like 3 shorts films in along the lines of what the Stooges famous. Bookmark It Hide Sites

New Release Movie Pick Of The Week: I Love You, Man

This week’s pick is I Love You, Man. Even though I’m probably more inclined to check out Nic Cage’s Knowing, I’m actually in the mood for a decent comedy. This one is written & directed by John Hamburg, a guy who has had his hand in some of my favorite comedies like Along Came Polly, Zoolander, & Meet The Parents/Fockers. With this experience, I already have hope for the film. It stars Paul Rudd as Peter Klaven, a guy who just got engaged to the woman of his dreams (played by the beautiful Rashida Jones). While planning the wedding, he realizes that he doesn’t...

Movie Review: Watchmen

Before seeing ‘Watchmen’, I recommend reading the comic source material or at least watching the motion comics. I say this because unless you’re familiar with the story, you may see it with some incorrect expectations. If you have seen any of the trailers or even just heard that it was based on comic books, I can guarantee you will walk into this film with no idea what you’re there to see. Over the last decade, we as the viewing audience have been conditioned to expect certain things from comic book based films. Over-the-top powers, tons of action, & fantastically colorful...

Some ‘Iron Man 2′ Casting Info…

Alright, I know that this info has been rumored for awhile now. I didn’t really post anything before on it because I was waiting for some confirmations to come out first. Well, I’ve seen them now, so, here’s my post. Remember my other post on Emily Blunt having to pull out of the Iron Man sequel? Well, her replacement has been cast. As I said in the post, Scarlett Johansson was rumored to be the next in line. Today, it’s been confirmed. Dark Horizons reports that she will play ‘Black Widow‘ not only in the next Iron Man pic, but in The Avengers as well. (Coincidentally,...
