Posted May 8, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongRyan Seacreast only started his new job hosting “Live with Kelly and Ryan” last week, but fans are already considering his next gig.With talk of an “American Idol” reboot getting more serious, Seacrest discussed the possibility of returning as host of the reality singing competition series with his “Live” co-host, Kelly Ripa during their show Monday. He shared that he called ABC after hearing the reports.”Well, I said, ‘That’s kind of good to know, since I work here,'” Seacrest told Ripa.Seacrest … She brought up reports that ABC made an offer to buy “Idol,” and he indicated an announcement seems “very close” to being made. As much as Seacrest seems to like staying busy, that might be too much for even him to deal with.Still, he did seem at least interested in the possibility. in? However, whether or not Seacrest will be at the mic again remains to be seen.”I don’t know about that part yet,” he said.
The movie that the filmmaker had just completed was the first half of that massive script; the sequel would be the second half. Besson went on to make “Leon: The Professional” in the interim and following the release of that film, he worked to streamline the ungainly sci-fi project to something more manageable (and attractive for big movie stars). But when “Columbiana” (an assassin thriller he made with Zoe Saldana) was coming out, Besson spoke openly about it being a slightly modified version of the “Leon” sequel he had been working on, which at one point was titled “Mathilda.” So it might seem like we never got the sequel to “Leon: The Professional,” we did … While Besson developed the visual look of the film, production halted in 1992. And I was so frustrated because it was not so easy at the time. In a 2011 interview with Moviefone, Besson said he had no interest in doing a sequel and in a Reddit AMA in 2013 he said that any talk of a sequel was just a “rumor.”I talked to him that same year about a potential “Fifth Element” follow-up and he told me: “‘The Fifth Element’ … (Also, there probably is one, you just have to look hard enough.)Unlike “The Fifth Element,” which was merely inspired by French comic books, “Valerian” is actually based off of one. The only true sequels the filmmaker has directed himself involved a trilogy of animated features he made in France that were nominally distributed stateside. Two decades in, it’s hard not to think of it as a lovably goofy, ahead-of-its-time masterpiece.But the question remains: Why hasn’t there ever been a proper sequel to the film?The legend goes that Luc Besson started working on what would end up being “The Fifth Element” back when he was 15. So when I did the film it was all blue screen, six hours, dots on the wall, takes forever to do one shot. So for me it would be connected even if the stories had nothing to do with each other.” (Also worth noting: Besson and the movie’s star, Milla Jovovich, divorced in 1999.)Which brings us to Besson’s approach to sequels, which can be a little tricky to understand. you just have to look through the lens of Luc.Which brings us to “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” Besson’s next grandiose sci-fi extravaganza, scheduled to open later this summer. This is that follow-up that Besson was hinting about in those Reddit AMAs and the film he was talking about with me. Shadow” (or whatever it might have been called), at least we get this. Now, basically, you put the camera on your shoulder and then you run and then you add a couple of dinosaurs and spaceships. I was a little bit frustrated because I made the film right before all the new effects arrived. Obviously, he pared down the script and even scored Willis, who Besson had courted during the first iteration of the movie, to star. For years, he worked on a proper follow-up to “Leon: The Professional” and he said that none of the scripts were good enough. Posted May 8, 2017 by Drew TaylorThis year marks the 20th anniversary of “The Fifth Element,” French visionary Luc Besson’s whirligig sci-fi epic about a cab driver (Bruce Willis) who befriends and falls in love with a space deity (Milla Jovovich) and ends up saving the galaxy and defeating a truly over-the-top baddie (Gary Oldman, naturally). And, judging by the trailers, it’s going to be awesome. Somewhere along the way it even got a name: “Mr. The fact that there isn’t a flying taxi in the trailer is a miracle. If you watch the trailer for the film, you’ll notice key touchstones, like the exaggerated color palette, wacky alien species, and off-kilter comedic elements. There’s certain strands of the same DNA there.So, even if we never really-for-real got “Mr. But what became of all that additional material?When Besson made the press rounds for “The Fifth Element,” he casually mentioned a sequel or follow-up. Otherwise, he has only written sequels (to mid-sized hits, like “Taken” and “The Transporter”). Shadow” (named after the malevolent force that threatened all mankind in “The Fifth Element”).In 1998, during the nascent days of the Internet rumor mill, it was reported that Bruce Willis had signed on for the follow-up and Mira Sorvino was also interested in a role. What I mean to say is that maybe the “Fifth Element” sequel is actually happening right now and being released as “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.” Even if it doesn’t have a direct connection, it’s sort of that spiritual successor Besson mentioned. It was a movie that seemingly came out of nowhere but was instantly embraced, if not widely than by a certain type of filmgoer that responded to its unusual and enchanting blend of comic book aesthetics, broad humor, thrilling action set pieces, and colorful characters. (Sorvino wound up in his 2001 martial arts thriller “Kiss of the Dragon,” which Besson co-wrote and produced.) For his part, Besson was hard at work on his follow up (with “Fifth Element” co-star and then-wife Milla Jovovich). kind of … By the time he had finished making “Atlantis,” his gorgeous and elliptical documentary about oceans, his script had ballooned to 400 pages. So I always think to myself that I would avenge one day and use all the new tools to do a sci-fi film for sure.”When I pressed him as to whether this sci-fi film would have any direct connection to “The Fifth Element,” he demurred: “I don’t know if it would be directly connected but it would be the same area and the same genre.
Potts. Host Adam DeVine took the role of the Beast, and his co-star Hailee Steinfeld volunteered to play Belle, revealing that she was wearing just the outfit to do it — a “coincidence,” of course.

“No Tomorrow” was a dramedy that paired a buttoned-up achiever (Tori Anderson) with a devil-may-care maverick (Joshua Sasse).The official cancellation leaves only “The Originals” and “iZombie” as the remaining CW shows whose fates are up in the air. Both averaged less than 1.5 million viewers and a dismal 0.3-0.4 in the coveted 18-49 demographic.”Frequency” was a reboot of the 2000 movie, starring Peyton List as detective who can communicate with her dead father through a radio. Posted May 8, 2017 by Kelly WooIt’s official: The CW has canceled freshman shows “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow.”The cancellation comes as no surprise, since neither series received orders for additional episodes beyond the initial 13.

It’s clear this summer show is turning up the horror level to 11.The original story took place within a supermarket, but the show expands it to the entire town, which is a wise choice for a longer series. “The Mist” premieres June 22 on Spike TV. The show centers on a small town, where the residents are trapped by a deadly mist that brings with it some supernatural creatures bent on killing and maiming.The biggest threat might be the residents themselves, as they start to turn on one another. “Take away food, take away water, and people start doing bad things,” someone notes.The trailer is pretty much non-stop action, and much more visceral than the first trailer. Posted May 8, 2017 by Kelly Woo”Few things are more beautiful than destruction,” says a character in a new trailer for Spike’s “The Mist” series, based on Stephen King’s story.Well, we wouldn’t say “beautiful” — more like bloody, gory, and super scary.

which, no, he is not in.He’s not Chris Pratt. Yeah, Chris Hemsworth plays Chris Pine’s dad in “Star Trek,” and Chris Pine plays Steve Trevor in “Wonder Woman,” with Chris Evans as Steve Rogers in “Captain America,” but it’s totally not confusing.In his monologue, Pine stood in front of a poster of the four famous Chrises, singing a new ditty set to the music of Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” in an attempt to differentiate himself from the others:Side note: We really need to get ourselves a giant Chris poster.It has become A Thing to sing about not being a different famous person. 2″ …. Or Chris Hemsworth. Maybe they’ll invite him back in another eight years. You may recall the song trying to separate Bryce Dallas Howard from Jessica Chastain. They are all superhero movie Chrises around the same age, height, haircut, and general gosh-golly-self-deprecating nice-guy demeanor, but Pine is a DC guy co-starring in the upcoming “Wonder Woman” movie, and the others are Marvel guys.

“When you have a sequel to a film that broke out the way the first ‘Guardians’ did,” according to Hollis, “you no longer have the element of surprise, but what you gain is the audience’s affection, which gives you the luxury to really delve into the world and the many unique and compelling things, from the colorful characters and the pitch-perfect cast to the music and visuals, that set it apart.”Indeed, word-of-mouth among paying customers was stronger than the reviews — the movie earned a solid A at CinemaScore, Marvel’s tenth consecutive film to do so — but Disney had to get those viewers into theaters first.Did Disney write off the kind of younger, mainstream viewers who usually make these films into hits? 2.” is an even bigger smash — but not as big as many had predicted. 2″ is the latest of several big-budget Hollywood launches this year, from “Beauty and the Beast” to “The Fate of the Furious,” that was made with someone other than the domestic, English-speaking audience in mind.It’s a vast movie galaxy out there. Hollis said that the absence of novelty was less of a liability than a creative opportunity. There’s also the key roles for old-school action-movie stalwarts Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone. Arguably, it was the brand that helped make a sleeper hit out of the first “Guardians” three summers ago. 2″ opened this weekend with an estimated $145.0 million, making it the sixth-biggest May debut ever, and yet that number almost seems like a disappointment. So “Guardians 2” is well on its way toward a $1 billion global gross. Yeah, it sounds petty to grumble about such a huge figure, but then, experts had been predicting an opening at $150 — at one point, predictions were as high as $160 million or even higher.Should “Guardians 2” have opened bigger? Forget the domestic earnings; international is the new benchmark for success. Still, why couldn’t “Guardians 2” open bigger than a movie from 10 years ago, the least-loved of the three Tobey Maguire “Spider-Man” films?”Guardians 2″ opened on 4,347 screens, a number that’s on a par with “The Avengers” (whose $207.4 million debut on the first weekend of May in 2012 is the best opening ever for Marvel and the third biggest opening weekend in history). The challenge is to sell each of these films with what Hollis calls “event-level marketing that feels personal.” For “Guardians 2,” that meant making the adorable Baby Groot ubiquitous, appearing everywhere from “SportsCenter” (on Disney-owned ESPN) to Go-Gurt ads, prompting massive viral sharing of images and video of the lovable shrub.Still, the usual blockbuster crowd was not Disney’s highest priority this time. The other is that the older audience still relies on reviews, which were less than enthusiastic; apparently, critics who enjoyed the novelty of the first “Guardians” felt that the sequel was just more of the same — if not less at times. Its position as the first blockbuster of the summer follows a carefully-drawn, time-tested blueprint. The IMAX screens alone yielded $13 million toward that $145 million debut.Still, while a lot of the film’s reported $200 million budget went toward visual spectacle, the movie’s key source of appeal, outside of the characters, may have been nostalgia. You don’t get to $145 million without marketing aggressively to young and old alike. Not exactly. Not only did the movie open with an astonishing $94.3 million, but it went on to gross $333 million in North America and $773 million worldwide.True, the first “Guardians” wouldn’t have earned those kinds of numbers if not for positive word-of-mouth once the film opened, but the Marvel name is what kicked the door open. That was the overseas audience, most of whom got to see “Guardians 2” a week before Americans did. It helped “Guardians” that almost all its screens were premium-format theaters that charge audiences extra. Few experts had predicted that a superhero saga featuring largely unfamiliar characters — including an angry raccoon and a talking tree — would have been a smash. “There’s a general halo of quality with the Marvel brand,” as Dave Hollis, Disney’s Executive Vice President for Theatrical Distribution, put it in an interview with Moviefone.Now that “Guardians” is an established franchise, however, the sequel is playing a different, more traditional game. “Guardians Vol. That represents about 100 more screens than “Spider-Man 3” (which premiered with $151.1 million) or “Iron Man 2” (opening with $128.1 million on this weekend in 2010). It certainly did better than the debuts of such Marvel sequels as “Iron Man 2,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and “Thor: The Dark World.” Its 54 percent increase over the opening weekend of the first “Guardians” is the biggest percentage jump for any second film in a Marvel Cinematic Universe series.Still, its failure to meet its projections may make you wonder: Are the new standards of Hollywood’s all-blockbusters-all-the-time business model out of whack? Or is something else going on regarding the ticket buyers that Hollywood does — and does not — target?For some perspective, it’s worth looking at what “Guardians 2” had going for it, and what its weaknesses were.On the plus side, there’s the Marvel name. But the goodwill that Marvel has earned over the years carried a lot weight and allowed a lot of viewers to give the film the benefit of the doubt. Domestic audiences who spent $145 million to watch the multi-racial, multi-species “Guardians 2” may soon realize that they’re just a small part of it. One is the conventional wisdom that it’s younger viewers that drive the box office, particularly for comic-book movies. There’s the much-anticipated soundtrack of vintage ’70s pop tunes, which was playing in rotation all weekend on Sirius XM’s ’70s station. There were some 3,800 3D screens, 388 IMAX screens, 588 large-format screens, and 194 theaters with jostling D-Box seats. Indeed, looking at the media coverage of “Guardians 2” over the last week, you’d have thought Russell was the star, not Chris Pratt.The result was an audience that was largely older. The movie has already earned $282.6 million abroad, nearly twice what it’s made here, for a worldwide total of $427.6 million. Posted May 7, 2017 by Gary SusmanWhen the first “Guardians of the Galaxy” came out in 2014, it was a surprise box office hit, considering how few members of the mass audience were familiar with the space epic’s characters.Fast forward to 2017, and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. After all, movies featuring Marvel characters have owned the summer-kickoff slot for the past decade; Marvel films have kicked off the first weekend in May every year since 2007. (Only 2007’s “Spider-Man 3” isn’t from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but obviously features a Marvel hero.)All five of the May movies that have opened bigger than “Guardians 2” are Marvel movies from the first weekend of the summer, and four come from the past five years. Only 28 percent of the audience consisted of families or teens, and only 40 percent of the viewers were under 25.There are two dangers here. Anything less than a billion — like the $773 million worldwide gross that the first “Guardians” earned three years ago — could now be be seen as a disappointment.”Guardians Vol.
