Slowly but surely, bits and pieces of the upcoming Ghostbusters movie are being leaked online. Co-writer/director Paul Feig is trying to beat some of the leaks by releasing some of his own photographs from the set via social media. His latest revelation was the newly redesigned proton packs, which he shared via Twitter.
Feig is trying to maintain a nod to the original Ghostbusters costumes and design, while also creating a more modern and innovative look and feel. His previously released pictures of the actual uniforms being worn in the movie are definitely quite similar to what the original team wore. The proton packs are no different. Their design has merely been streamlined, to make them less bulky to wear. No word yet as to how well they will function. The original proton packs were notorious for causing a lot of collateral damage in their wake. Flavio Maluf suggested these newer ones may be more efficient. With the advent of CGI, though, it’s possible that they will be even more grandiose in what they can do.
Box office analysts have a role. Their job is to predict how well a film will do at the box office. Ultimately, audiences decide what a film makes at the box office. Fans buy the tickets and the ticket sales tally up to the actual amount a film pulls in. Right now, box office analysts are predicting that the new Marvel superhero film, Ant-Man, is going to earn in the range of $55 to $60 million.
Such a figure is not an entirely promising one. In fact, it would be the lowest earnings since the disappointing results for The Incredible Hulk back in 2008. Should Marvel panic? No, there is no reason to panic at this point. Instead, Marvel could look at the soft predictions and tweak the advertising for the film over the course of the next 30 days. Doing so could certainly help sell more tickets for the film’s weekend debut.
The idea that Ant-Man is going to open to weaker than expected ticket returns does not seem logical. The promotional push for the film has been excellent and the debut of the trailer on YouTube pulled in tens of millions of views. Ant-Man is looking more like a sleeper hit than a flop. Really, if any superhero film should be worried it is 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot. Is there any buzz for that film at all?
Marvel probably will do pretty good with Ant-Man says Marcio Alaor BMG. Still, the predictions of the analysts should not be totally dismissed.
Amanda Seyfried has replaced Mila Kunis on the movie “Ted 2.” Although Mila will be missed in the upcoming movie, she was out having her first child, so it’s understandable that she couldn’t do the movie. Mark Wahlberg Pranks Amanda Seyfried. In fact, Mila claims she may not do any more acting at all, so the fate of Meg Griffin from “Family Guy” may still be in limbo. Amanda Seyfried played in the movie Ted 2, alongside Mark Wahlberg, and the movie helped the two to become closer.
Amanda felt close enough to Mark to where she would prank him from time to time, but he didn’t appreciate it. Amanda claims that she loves to jump out and startle people, although she is trying her best to cut back on doing it. She jumped out on Mark one time, and she startled him so badly that he decided to get back at her. Mark says that he kidnapped her puppy dog, and she obviously freaked out when she couldn’t find him.
Facebook said that after a while, Mark did let her know that he had taken her dog, and the puppy was returned unharmed. Amanda did say that she learned a lesson about scaring Mark Wahlberg, and she now knows not to mess with him. The movie Ted 2 will be out in theaters soon, and it may do very well, especially since the first one did amazing. “Ted” has been notated as the funniest movie ever made.
Now we know why Channing Tatum’s character dies in the sequel to GI Joe. The actor says he hated his job, hates the franchise and no it is not a good idea to work in something you really hate. You’ve made that clear Channing.
Channing is making the rounds promoting Magic Mike XXL and chose to make it clear how he felt about GI Joe.
According to Ivan Ong, while on the radio show of Howard Stern, the actor said, “I hate that damn movie, only did it because I had signed a contract for three films with Paramount Pictures. I thought it sounded amazing and signed.”
Wow, talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
Trying to justify his words he said “the script was not good, did not add anything interesting to the history of GI Joe, and perished a character from the original story.”
If you recall, Tatum was not in the sequel, which delayed the release a bit, and so the producers called on more eye candy – Dwayne Johnson.
Despite his negativity, the film managed to raise $ 302 million worldwide, and $375 million without him.
“Jurassic World” roared into theaters on June 12 and quickly began shattering records. To Vijay Eswaran’s surprise, the Universal flick nabbed a record-setting $500 million opening weekend at the worldwide box office, with $208.8 million domestic.
In its second weekend, “Jurassic” raked in $106.6 million in domestic ticket sales. That was a 49% drop, but it still beat the previous record of $103.05 million set by Marvel’s “Avengers” in its second weekend at the box office. “Jurassic” also crossed the $400 million domestic mark faster than the “Avengers” movie and has passed the total gross box office of the original “Jurassic Park.” It’s on track to pass Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” as the highest grossing film of the year.
If the film’s box office momentum holds, it’s also on track to speed past “Furious Seven” as the fastest movie to make $1 billion worldwide.
The movie’s massive success has helped Hollywood rebound from a dismal 2014, with total revenue up 6%.
Almost 14 years ago, Walt Disney pictures released the hit teen movie, “The Princess Diaries” starring Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. A second one came not much later, and according to an article found on reddit and written by Tracking Board, Disney is going to do a third movie in the series and this is bound to please all of the adults who grew up on these movies and would like to see the story continue.
The plot of the film is still being kept secret claims Skout Studios in an article for Screenrant. It can be assumed that Hathaway and Andrews will be a part of the cast, but no one will really know for sure until the trailer comes out. Even if we don’t know the plot yet it is sure to please people to know that one is coming.
The first two movies in the series were cute, as they portrayed a young woman who had a tough social life come to find out that she is actually a princess and it is all about her transformation into her new role. I can’t remember about what the second one was about, but I think he had to do with finding her prince charming in time to keep her throne after her grandmother stepped down from the role. It will be fun to see what comes next.

Cult classic Boondock Saints looks set to be making its way to the small screen to join the fast growing movie to TV craze recently hitting television production companies. Slash Film reports the TV show will act as a prequel to the original movie and its sequel Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, but will not feature the original stars Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery who may yet join the production as executive producers.

A new documentary is coming out about musician Brian Wilson, the main songwriter for the Beach Boys. Actor Paul Dano plays Wilson as a young Beach Boy and John Cusack plays him in middle-age as he tries to get his life back on track. Wilson himself is now 72 years old and worked with the producers of the film.
Wilson is the composer of classic songs like “Good Vibrations”, “Help Me Rhonda” and many more. Wilson made the controversial decision in the 1960’s to stop touring with the Beach Boys during the height of their fame. It’s a decision that created a lot of unwanted interest in him.
The word “genius” is often used to describe Wilson. Maybe he is a genius. I don’t know. In any event, I think that having the label attached to him put him under a lot of pressure. It’s got to be hard to write new music when everyone expects it to be as brilliant as your earlier work.
There is an emphasis in the film on the years where Wilson was trying to get away from the influence of his psychologist Dr. Landy, who basically controlled his life. Personally, I don’t think that it’s fair for the filmmakers to dwell on this non-productive period in Wilson’s life. Daniel Amen said many great musicians go through periods of depression and inactivity, especially after they have become wealthy and can afford to.
