The Purge Anarchy

The first two Purge films cost $12 million combined and together they’ve grossed nearly $200 million. That’s what you call “good business,” so Universal and Blumhouse have made The Purge 3 official. This itself isn’t a surprise. What is a bit of a surprise is the news saying James DeMonaco, the writer and director of the first two films, is returning to fill the same roles on the third movie. In an industry where directors can move from six digit budgets directly into nine digit budgets, it’s awesome to see the same person continue on with a franchise. Read The Purge 3 news below.

Laika hand-drawn

Released just over a week ago, The Boxtrolls had the best-ever opening for Laika, and going into this weekend had a global take sitting at $38m. Those are good numbers, and all the more remarkable because The Boxtrolls isn’t a smooth and sanitized picture. Rather it is idiosyncratic and unusual, especially for today’s animation landscape. Since Laika’s films aren’t cheap (this one is reportedly budgeted at around $60m) and take considerable time to create, it’s good to know that the company has a partner going forward.

Focus Features and Universal have partnered with Laika in the past to release the studio’s films domestically and abroad. And the companies have announced that they’ve signed a new three-film pact. That means that we’ll see another trio of Laika films with the muscle of Focus and Universal behind them. More info follows. Read More »

universal monsters dracula

We know that Universal is putting together a new set of Universal Monsters movies, with Alex Kurtzman and Fast and Furious screenwriter Chris Morgan as architects of the franchise series reboot. The first movie out of the gate will be a new version of The Mummy, directed by Kurtzman. Before that plan was fully in place, however, Universal had Dracula Untold ready to go. The film opens on October 10, and early reports out of junket screenings indicate that the film has been tweaked to feature a possible connection to the upcoming set of monster films. Read More »

Stretch trailer

The story of Stretch, a colorful thriller from director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) has turned into quite a saga. Carnahan shot the $5m film last year, with Patrick Wilson as a limo driver who is in serious financial trouble, and appearances from James Badge Dale, Chris Pine, Ed Helms, Jessica Alba, and Norman Reedus. Universal scotched its original release plan for the film, but has now formally set an October 7 digital release date, and a VOD debut to follow. With those dates comes a great Stretch trailer, which you can see below.

‘Blackhat’ Trailer: Michael Mann Returns

Blackhat trailer

After five years away from the feature scene, Michael Mann returns with Blackhat, a “cyber-thriller” that casts Chris Hemsworth as a hacker recruited to ferret out a ring of criminals who use computer networks to accomplish high-level goals. Hemsworth puts his “American guy” accent to use, and Mann also employs a solid supporting cast including Viola Davis, Holt McCallany, Wei Tang and Leehom Wang. And we’re always willing to see how another filmmaker can visualize the not-so-exciting act of hacking. Check out the Blackhat trailer below.

Following the viral hit of the short film Portal: No Escape, Universal Pictures and screenwriter-turned-producer Chris Morgan (Wanted, Fast Five, 47 Ronin) quickly acquired Dan Trachtenberg‘s  time travel action heist film Crime of the Century. Trachtenberg has been actively developing the idea into a movie since the 2011 acquisition with screenwriter Daniel Kunka (12 Rounds), while trying to get a Y: The Last Man movie adaptation off the ground at New Line and finally getting a greenlight with the mysterious Bad Robot film Valencia.

Now it seems like the heat is back on at Universal to get Crime of the Century into production, and the studio has hired screenwriter Gary Dauberman, who recently wrote The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle for Warner Bros. Find out more about the project and the new Crime of the Century writer, after the jump.
