Marvel Studios "Doctor Strange" Co-Starring 'Sub-Mariner'

Marvel Studios' developing sequel feature "Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness", will introduce Marvel Comics' WW II, anti-hero "Namor: The Sub-Mariner":

Plans fell through for a live action "Namor" TV series in the 1950's, starring Richard Egan, plus there was interest in a 1970's TV pilot...

...that was scrubbed because of a similarity to the NBC series "Man from Atlantis" (1977), starring Patrick Duffy, licensed for publishing by Marvel Comics.

To date, Universal still controls screen rights to the "Hulk" and will only allow Marvel Studios to feature the character as part of an ensemble, rather than as the main character in a stand-alone film.

"I can't speak for the studios," said Marvel's Joe Quesada about Disney recovering screen rights to Namor from Universal.

"But as far as I know, yeah we do (have screen rights). It’s not at Fox, it’s not at Sony...Yeah."

"Yes," confirmed

Universal’s Beijing Resort to Partner With Alibaba on Digitization

  • Variety
Amid fierce controversy about the leverage China has over U.S. entertainment firms with significant mainland operations, Universal Beijing Resort and Alibaba announced a strategic partnership Thursday to digitize the forthcoming theme park in China’s capital.

Facial recognition and the use of big data will be the norm at the new resort, which will use an Alibaba operating system for park management and operations, the companies said. For visitors, this means they will be able to use Alibaba’s facial-recognition technology to enter the park, access lockers and express lanes, and pay for merchandise and meals. They can also skip lines and order food via an Alibaba app. Tmall, Alibaba’s e-commerce platform, will work with the park to co-market products.

Comcast chairman and CEO Brian Roberts made the trip to Beijing for Thursday’s announcement, marking the project’s importance for the company.

Kevin Costner's Classic Big-Budget Bomb Waterworld Gets The Honest Trailers Treatment

I’m sure you all remember Kevin Costner’s Waterworld! The movie had a budget of $175 million, which for its time in 1995, was an insane amount of money to spend on a film. It’s still is! The movie bombed at the box office with only making $88 million domestically.

The Mad Max on water concept just didn’t seem to connect with audiences and this latest edition of Honest Trailers hilariously points out all of the reasons why. This was definitely not Kevin Costner’s finest hour as an actor, but he sure is good with rope stuff!

I haven’t seen Waterworld in years, and this Honest Trailer is all I need to see of it to remind me that I don’t really have to watch the movie again.

Do you remember what was going through your head while you were watching Waterworld for the first time? If you don’t remember,

‘Waterworld’ Honest Trailer: The Wettest ‘Mad Max’ Movie You’ve Ever Seen
Summer has been full of big blockbusters for years, but back in 1995, the biggest bomb was an entire movie called Waterworld. Making just $88 million in the United States on a reported budget of $175 million, the movie was a massive disappointment. If it wasn’t for the budget being made up with the $175 […]

Kevin Costner: A Hollywood Gunslinger Looks Back

Kevin Costner: A Hollywood Gunslinger Looks Back
Unbeknownst to just about everybody, Kevin Costner could not have become Kevin Costner — that is to say, the biggest movie star around for a 10-year run starting in the late 1980s, with him swinging bats at balls in Bull Durham (1988) and Field of Dreams (1989), flashing badges at bad guys in The Untouchables (1987), and fast-racking the lever on his polished brass-frame Henry 1860 rifle in Dances With Wolves (1990); in the process becoming dominantly noted for his “tall, rangy good looks” and what Hollywood types like to call “flesh impact;” usually choosing to

What Films Don’t Tell You About High Stakes Blackjack Casinos

Blackjack – the simple casino game depicted in film and television for many decades. We’ve seen films like The Hangover, Rain Man and even the 2008 movie 21 depict gambling and indeed blackjack in some of its scenes, working the attraction of the game into the narrative, but how true is what the movies tell us about this age-old game of probability?

The rules of blackjack take moments to learn – the simplicity of it perfect for screenwriters to add it to a screen story. Essentially, any number of players can play – and all that they must do is get to 21 – or as close to it – beating the dealer. They must not exceed 21 or they will go bust, and if they do that, they are out of the hand and will lose their stake.

The game has been seen in notable films over the years. Aside from the aforementioned, blackjack has been seen

Dennis Hopper movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Blue Velvet,’ ‘Easy Rider,’ ‘Hoosiers’
Dennis Hopper would’ve celebrated his 83rd birthday on May 17, 2019. The Oscar-nominated performer experienced many ups-and-downs throughout his career, with his off-screen antics often overshadowing his onscreen talent. Yet many of his movies have stood the test of time. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 15 of Hopper’s greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1936, Hopper made his movie debut at the age of 19 in “Rebel Without a Cause” (1955), where he became fast friends with James Dean. He had an even bigger role in “Giant” (1956), which would be Dean’s last film before his untimely death in 1955. Hopper struggled for several years trying to find his voice, making small appearances in such films as “Cool Hand Luke” (1967) and “True Grit”(1969).

Kevin Costner in ‘Waterworld’ Coming to 4K Ultra HD and Steelbook This July

Universal Studios Home Entertainment is bringing Waterworld starring Kevin Costner to 4K Ultra HD for the first time on July 9th.

The Waterworld 4K presentation is the theatrical cut and will include DTS:x audio and HDR10.

The extended Waterworld cut with 40 additional minutes added on is on the inclusive Blu-ray along with a high definition version of the theatrical cut. A 4K version of the extended cut is not a part of this package.

Best Buy will be releasing a Waterworld 4K Steelbook on July 9th as well. Artwork for the steelbook packaging isn't available quite yet.

Cinema and the End of the World As We Know It

Tom Jolliffe takes a look at cinema’s end of the world fascination…

As we sit in the age of Trump and Brexit, aforementioned climate issues, and a general sense that democratic systems aren’t working too well, we’re stepping into an age where the end of the world film is rising in popularity again. They’ve always been popular, and predominantly come in bunches during specific periods. Post wars were rife, right back to the very first Dystopian films coming out of Germany after WW1 (most notably Metropolis), through other conflicts, and to a mass of cold war era dystopian world enders in the 80’s. A height of paranoia that would see films like Red Dawn, or the uber jingoistic Chuck Norris equivalent, Invasion USA which is oddly enjoyable in its sheer ludicrousness.

In cinematic terms, the end of the world doesn’t necessarily mean a total wipeout scenario.
