Christopher McQuarrie Talks About His Superman and Green Lantern Tie-In Movies That WB Rejected

When Warner Bros. and DC were still trying to figure out how to move forward with the Dceu and the Man of Steel sequel, there were reports that Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie was looking to make a Man of Steel sequel, and there was even talk of his involvement with a Green Lantern film.

Well, it turns out that he was actually working directly with Henry Cavill on an idea and pitch for Man of Steel 2, and that sequel would have tied directly into a Green Lantern movie! A fan reached out to the filmmaker on Twitter, and McQuarrie actually opened up a little bit about it.

Here’s what he said on Twitter:

Too complicated to explain. It tied into the Superman movie that Cavill and I were proposing. No takers.

The studios have never cared for my original ideas. They prefer that I fix their broken ones.

The Best Action Scenes of the Decade, Part 1: Para Bellum

Part 1 of a two-part series spotlighting the best action scenes of the 2010s. Part 2 is coming soon.John Wick doesn’t walk. He hobbles, slightly hunched over from the strain of fresh wounds and a general, existential exhaustion. As played by Keanu Reeves, Wick departs from the actor’s nimbler roles of yore—hotshot FBI surfer Johnny Utah, runaway-bus-stopping Jack Traven, humanity’s machine age savior Neo—in that, although he fights with practiced skill, the violence weighs on him. One scene part way through John Wick: Chapter Two (2017) does an especially effective job at highlighting Wick’s vulnerability by pitting a bunch of assassins against him, a series of fights that’s presented via montage to heighten the sense of bombardment. As Wick just barely fends off his attackers, Reeves makes age and gravity readable in the character’s jerky, slightly tremulous movements, and rather than fighting silent and

Disney's 'Aladdin' Soars Over Memorial Day Weekend at the Box Office

Disney's 'Aladdin' Soars Over Memorial Day Weekend at the Box Office
Disney's Aladdin topped the weekend with an impressive debut, delivering over $85 million for the three-day and is expected to top $100 million for the four-day, Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Meanwhile, fellow newcomers Brightburn and Booksmart finished more in line with studio expectations than Mojo's aggressive pre-weekend forecast and Avengers: Endgame will become only the second film ever to top $800 million at the domestic box office by the end of the long holiday weekend.

With an estimated $86.1 million, Disney's Aladdin topped the Memorial Day three-day weekend box office. For Disney this is something of a big win considering the studio's live action properties, outside of the Marvel Universe, have struggled for some time now.

Disney anticipates the reportedly $180+ million production will top $105 million for the four-day weekend, though rival studios expect that total to go even higher, targeting a four-day debut over $110 million, which would be enough to make it

Christopher McQuarrie Details His Rewrites on ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’

Christopher McQuarrie is a gift to cinephiles. Not just because the writer-director keeps making incredible action movies and lending his voice as a top industry screenplay doctor, but because he's so open and communicative about the whole experience. Few filmmakers engage with fan questions more actively and thoughtfully than McQuarrie does on social media, record multiple commentaries for their Blu-ray releases, and willingly jump on podcasts for hours and hours to break down their craft. Whatever the medium, the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Fallout director always discusses the nuts and bolts of making a movie with …

FilmStruck Gains Support of Christopher Nolan, Guillermo del Toro, Damien Chazelle and More as Shutdown Looms

Joseph Baxter Nov 15, 2018

As streaming service FilmStruck eyes an imminent shutdown, a letter of support signed by major industry names attempts a save.

FilmStruck has quietly become the default place for serious movie buffs to stream an impressive lineup of indie, classic and foreign offerings, notably serving as the streaming home of enthusiastically curated releases of The Criterion Collection. Yet, it may have done so too quietly, since the company’s splash page is now dominated by a message announcing the service’s shutdown, set for November 29. However, some of the service’s high-profile industry subscribers are now attempting to keep it alive.

Entertainment industry heavies, notably Christopher Nolan, Guillermo del Toro, Damien Chazelle, along with Barry Jenkins Christopher McQuarrie and Paul Thomas Anderson, just to name a few, have affixed their names to a petition letter that is urging the folks at FilmStruck to keep things up and running.

Blumhouse's Thriller Trailer Turns a Childhood Prank Into a Nightmare

Blumhouse's Thriller Trailer Turns a Childhood Prank Into a Nightmare
Blumhouse is going all in on its winning barebones production formula with the cheap-looking Thriller, which makes it extra scary by default. Its loose production values add a certain aura to this haunting tale that you would never get with a big budget horror project. Oh, and we should mention, since it's returning to theaters today, this has nothing to do with Michael Jackson's Thriller, which is playing in 3D alongside The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

Thriller is the latest low budget creeper from Blumhouse, who are gearing up to release the much more high profile Halloween sequel in theaters next month. Dallas Jackson directs Thriller, which tells of a childhood prank gone horribly wrong. You get to see that prank happen here, and the outcome will definitely turn your stomach. The dollar store production aesthetic adds a sense of realism that comes across like a snuff film.

China Box Office: 'Mission Impossible — Fallout' Scores Big With $77M, 'Ant-Man 2' Crosses $100M

China Box Office: 'Mission Impossible — Fallout' Scores Big With $77M, 'Ant-Man 2' Crosses $100M
Mission: Impossible - Fallout just gave Tom Cruise the best opening weekend of his career at the massive Chinese box office, racking up a strong $77.3 million.

It was the biggest three-day bow to date for the Mission: Impossible franchise, and the best August opening ever for Imax in China, which pulled in $7.4 million from the Paramount tentpole.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation opened on a Tuesday in 2015, making direct comparisons a little wonky; it earned $86 million over its first six days.

As in the U.S., Fallout has been fueled by rave word of mouth in China, scoring ...

'Crazy Rich Asians' Tops Labor Day Weekend, 'Fallout' is Big in China & 'Incredibles 2' Tops $600 Million

'Crazy Rich Asians' Tops Labor Day Weekend, 'Fallout' is Big in China & 'Incredibles 2' Tops $600 Million
It was a big weekend for milestones as Crazy Rich Asians continued its stellar run, finishing atop the weekend box office for the third weekend in a row and topping $110 million domestically.

Meanwhile, Sony's Searching delivered a strong performance in expanded release while Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Fallout made a big splash in China and Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 became only the ninth film ever to top $600 million at the domestic box office.

At the top of the domestic weekend box office, WB's Crazy Rich Asians delivered a three-day gross totaling an estimated $22.2 million, which marks just a 10% drop compared to last weekend as the film's domestic gross now totals over $110 million.

The film is expected to generate around $28 million for the four-day holiday for a domestic gross topping $116 million. The film's overseas cume is now just shy of $20 million after bringing in an estimated $10.4 million from 24 markets,

The 10 Best Movies of 2018

David Crow Don Kaye Feb 22, 2019

With the Oscars just around the corner, we revisit our top critics' picks for the best movies of 2018.

The year of 2018 is long over now, and for many that will be received as happy tidings. After a full 12-month season marked by division and acrimony, unrest and unpleasantness, it’s easy to reach toward apathy, but this would be a mistake. For all its faults, 2018 has brought the culture at large many things to celebrate, from the ice of Pyeongchang to a new desire to put rockets in our orbit. And the movie house has had its virtues too.

While the general notion is that cinema is endangered by the growing (and fracturing) glut of television and streaming options, such avenues are actually budding opportunities for filmmakers with dreams in search of an audience. As the below lists indicate, we have a wider range of

'Crazy Rich Asians' Delivers $34M Five-Day Opening; 'Mile 22' & 'Alpha' Fall Short

'Crazy Rich Asians' Delivers $34M Five-Day Opening; 'Mile 22' & 'Alpha' Fall Short
August may be a notoriously slow month at the box office, but Warner Bros. has now delivered back-to-back strong performers. Last weekend The Meg topped all expectations and continued its strong global performance this weekend, while the new release of Crazy Rich Asians delivered an estimated $34 million in its first five days of release. Between the two films, WB secured the weekend's top two spots, and helped deliver the third straight August weekend this year to top the same weekend last year. Unfortunately, the weekend's two other new wide releases, Stx's Mile 22 and Sony's Alpha, weren't able to have such splashy debuts. With an estimated $34 million, Crazy Rich Asians topped industry expectations and came up just shy of Mojo's aggressive, pre-weekend forecast. The film is having a profound impact as the first Asian-led studio film to hit theaters since The Joy Luck Club 25 years ago and word

'Mission: Impossible' Tops 'Christopher Robin' for Weekend #1; 'Black Panther' Reaches $700M

'Mission: Impossible' Tops 'Christopher Robin' for Weekend #1; 'Black Panther' Reaches $700M
August 2017 saw the worst grosses for the eighth month of the year in twenty years and the writing was on the wall very early with the disappointing debut of The Dark Tower to begin the month. While this weekend's crop of new releases didn't exactly light the box office on fire, with Disney's Christopher Robin debuting below expectations, the weekend's top twelve titles still finished 15% ahead of the the same weekend last year and featured a strong carryover weekend from Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Fallout. With an estimated $35 million, Mission: Impossible - Fallout finished atop the weekend box office for a second weekend in a row as the film's domestic cume now stands just shy of $125 million after ten days in release. The film's 42.8% second weekend drop is the second best sophomore effort in the franchise behind Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, which isn't quite an apples-to-apples comparison

'Mission: Impossible' Looks to Retain #1 Position Over Disney's 'Christopher Robin'

'Mission: Impossible' Looks to Retain #1 Position Over Disney's 'Christopher Robin'
With July coming to a close, the Summer 2018 movie season begins to wind down, yet Disney's Christopher Robin hopes to keep the summer season alive for just a bit longer. The new release from the Mouse House will battle Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Fallout for the weekend's number one slot while Lionsgate's The Spy Who Dumped Me looks for a spot in the top three and early signals suggest Fox's The Darkest Minds may need to scratch and claw for a spot in the top ten. While we're expecting a close race, as of now we anticipate Mission: Impossible - Fallout will hang on for a second weekend atop the weekend box office, dropping around 47% for a $32 million sophomore session. In fact, this forecast feels slightly conservative considering the film has continued to outperform Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation throughout the week and that film dipped
