This weekend 'The Purge' made $34 million at the box office. As the film had a production budget of $3 million, that means the film started to turn a profit less than a day after it was released. So it's no surprise that they're moving forward with a sequel.
When you're making a movie about large robots fighting gigantic monsters, a lot of your action is going to be done through computer imagery. A director like Guillermo del Toro knows the best way to sell CGI is to mesh it with as much practical work as possible. In the latest featurette on the making of 'Pacific Rim,' del Toro talks about how he approached the special effects for his giant monster movie.
'World War Z' is a film about fighting zombies, and it's funny that the film has screened (and screened well) but is still fighting undead rumors about it being a total disaster. We saw the film and liked it, but it's going to need good word of mouth to be one of the hits this summer. Perhaps it will get better word with this clip, which sets up how Brad Pitt is forced into action to stop the zombie apocalypse.
'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' was a done deal when the fourth film in the franchise, 'On Stranger Tides,' grossed over a billion dollars worldwide. But it was unknown who would helm the fifth entry. And instead of returning to original franchise helmer Gore Verbinski or 'Tides' director Rob Marshall, it was just announced that the job has gone to Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.
There were rumors that there was going to be a big 'American Idol' shake-up, but before anything was made official Randy Jackson has given the show his walking papers. Jackson announced today that Season 12 will be his last on the hit show.
'American Idol' used to be the hottest show on television, but after 13 years, it's starting to show its age. The show's ratings have slipped from regularly having 30 million viewers to now somewhere around 11 million. And though the show has had some different judges over the course of its run, it's now looking to ditch all four current judges to have a fresh face for season 13.
In one of the most public contract negotiations of the modern era, Robert Downey Jr. has let it be known that he finished his contractual obligations to Marvel and to playing Tony Stark and Iron Man. Which means his future involvement with both 'The Avengers' and 'Iron Man' will depend on how much Marvel is willing to pony up.
Though Tom Cruise may have gone through a rough patch in his career, that's now completely over as he's being brought back to star in 'Mission: Impossible 5' for Paramount. This has been rumored for a while, but it was confirmed today.
