Greatest Showman Reshoots

After the scope of the new musical The Greatest Showman became a bit too large for filmmaker Michael Gracey, Logan director (and veteran Hugh Jackman collaborator) James Mangold came to the rescue for a week of reshoots. Mangold also helped edit the film, and ended up with an executive producer credit. More info on the Greatest Showman reshoots is below.

Solo Reshoots

The film world was caught off-guard earlier this year when it was announced that directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller would be leaving the Han Solo spin-off film, and that Ron Howard would be taking their place. Howard did extensive reshoots on the film, and now Solo: A Star Wars Story co-star Paul Bettany has revealed that Howard possibly did even more reshoots than originally intended.

all the money in the world trailer

Ridley Scott defied all the odds and is ready to deliver All the Money in the World to theaters right on schedule (give or take a few days). A filmmaker delivering a film as expected normally isn’t a huge deal, but All the Money in the World is a special case: with only weeks until release, Scott and company went back and reshot several scenes to replace disgraced actor Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer. It was a bold, unexpected plan that might just have paid off. Now, new details from Scott and Plummer have emerged about the All the Money in the World reshoots.

the nutcracker and the four realms reshoots

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is almost finished baking, but it needs a little extra sugar before it makes its way to theaters. Like any big-budget tentpole that relies heavily on CGI effects, there are significant reshoots planned for Disney’s adaptation of the E.T.A. Hoffmann fairytale and Tchaikovsky ballet.

However, because the film’s original director Lasse Hallstrom is unable to complete them due to scheduling issues, Disney has brought on Joe Johnston, the director of The Rocketeer, Jumanji, and Captain America: The First Avenger.

Superman black suit

At this point, it’s safe to say Justice League is a misfire. Critics didn’t care for it, it underperformed at the box office to the point that it’s caused a shake-up behind the scenes at Warner Bros., and all anyone wanted to talk about was Henry Cavill‘s weird CGI face hiding his mustache. As rumors abound about deleted scenes, cinematographer Fabian Wagner confirms that the film originally featured Superman black suit scenes, recalling the outfit used for Superman’s resurrection in the comic books following The Death of Superman arc. At some point, this idea got scrapped. Sorry, everyone. More details about the Superman black suit in Justice League are below.  Read More »

Justice League reshoots

Justice League is now playing in theaters everywhere and if you went into the film hoping to see all of the flashy stuff on display in the multiple trailers, you might’ve been disappointed.

In the wake of the film’s release, even more details about Justice League reshoots have surfaced.

Justice League reshoots

The making of Warner Bros.’ long-brewing Justice League is as fraught with drama as almost anything you’ll see in a theater this year. Following financially successful but critically despised movies like Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, DC Films changed its tactics and wanted to lighten things up a little bit. Part of that decision involved hiring Joss Whedon to come in and rewrite sections of the film’s screenplay, and ultimately Whedon stepped into the director’s chair to direct reshoots when original director Zack Snyder stepped away due to a death in the family.

Those reshoots and their impact on the movie have become a central talking point for fans and we’ve spent a long time speculating about what the final film will look like. Some of us have seen it already, but now, just a few days from its official release, one of the movie’s producers has come forward and revealed the ratio of Whedon’s Justice League reshoots to the footage Snyder originally shot for the superhero sequel.

batman and wonder woman

Justice League will finally unite the world’s finest DC Comics superheroes, played by capital “f” Fine actors. And because this is a group of beautiful, superpowered people fighting to save the world, there will inevitably be some sexual tension between the men of the team and the lone female member. Basically, Batman and Wonder Woman are going to be flirting up a storm.

The reshoots of Justice League reportedly built on the hint of romance between Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) that we got a glimpse of in the princess of Themyscira’s introduction in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We got another hint at their budding relationship in Wonder Woman as well, which was bookended by Bruce sending Diana the lost picture of her first love, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), during her stint fighting in World War I. But can Ben Affleck beat out the best Chris? That’s yet to be seen.
