Alex Kurtzman’s reboot of The Mummy was… well, hoo boy. It was not well received by audiences or critics upon its release earlier this year, and was not a great start to Universal’s monster reboot franchise Dark Universe. Its reception also doesn’t bode well for Kurtzman, who is currently unsure about his future in the franchise.
Script rewrites happen, especially on giant tentpole science fiction franchises like, for instance, Star Wars. Episode IX is getting an assist from Jack Thorne, who sounds like he should be searching for hidden treasure in the Amazon but is, in fact, a screenwriter responsible for the BBC’s His Dark Materials series and upcoming Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay movie Wonder.
Steven Spielberg, prolific and legendary as he is, has had plenty of flops in his time, and he’s not afraid to let everyone know which of his many film children he likes the least. While making the new documentary Spielberg, documentarian Susan Lacy spent more than 30 hours interviewing her subject, and during some of those sessions he told her which of his Indiana Jones films he likes the least. No, it’s not that one.
The Muppets have been mired in a sort of scandal recently, started by the firing of Steve Whitmore, who had been the voice and hands of Kermit the Frog since the untimely death of Jim Henson in 1990. Now, Henson’s son Brian Henson has offered some more insight into the matter.
It’s nearing the end of the month, which means it’s time for streaming services to start rolling out their new instant releases. August is an exciting month for Amazon Prime subscribers, as seasons of four original shows are debuting next month, not least of all is the first season of The Tick!
With movies seemingly getting longer by the second after Michael Bay and his ilk ushered in a new and exhausting runtime era, lights in the bloated darkness can come from the most unexpected of places. The Dark Tower, for example, is only 95 minutes long — for those of you who, like me, don’t understand what that means unless it’s in hours, that equates to an hour and 35 minutes. Which is less than two hours!
The Suicide Squad sequel has been a little up in the air recently without a director (remember when we thought Mel Gibson was gonna take it on?), but today brings news that Jaume Collet-Serra, director of such films as The Shallows, Orphan, and Non-Stop, is the current frontrunner for the movie.
Ridley Scott has gotten into expansive universe mode. When he opened the doors to the possibility with 2012’s Prometheus, he immediately began to plan for more, to write a detailed pre-history of his seminal Alien which has come to us in the form of Alien: Covenant, and which, like the Universe itself, grows ever larger by the day. Now, it looks like he‘s turning his sights to his other sci-fi property, which is itself also getting a sequel this year. And Scott wants even more.
The end of one month means the start of another, which also means that new things are coming to a streaming platform near you. Netflix’s July instant releases are stacked, and include a few classic cartoon dinosaur movies, the premieres of a new Netflix original shows, and one Star Wars Story.
