Josh Trank Leaves 'Star Wars' Spinoff

Fan speculation about his 'Celebration' absence proves correct.

Story Matt Cummings

Just one year after he was announced to direct an as-of-yet Star Wars spinoff movie (the first belonging to Gareth Edwards' Rogue One), Director Josh Trank (Chronicle and Fantastic Four reboot) has departed the project. The announcement was made on Friday by Trank, who had this to say:

"After a year of having the incredible honor of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I’m making a personal decision to move forward on a different path. I’ve put a tremendous amount of thought into this, and I know deep down in my heart that I want to pursue some original creative opportunities. That said, the Star Wars universe has always been one of my biggest influences, and I couldn’t be more excited to witness its future alongside my millions of fellow Star Wars fans. I want to thank my friends Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart, Simon Kinberg, and everyone at Lucasfilm and Disney for the amazing opportunity to have been a part of this. May the Force be with you all."


But until recently, no one outside of the project knew there was a problem. Then Star Wars Celebration arrived one week ago, and Trank was not in attendance, citing illness as the reason. In retrospect, the signs for his departure seemed to be there. But, according to numerous sites including THR, the problems were much deeper, which centered around frequent clashes with studio heads regarding the path of the film in relation to the bigger, connected Star Wars universe. There is also rumors that Trank's re-shooting of Fantastic Four may have also contributed. Producers on that project even claimed that the 30 year-old's behavior was “erratic” and at points “very isolated.” Fellow collaborator Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker were said to be very involved in that process, so much so that some had claimed Trank could have gotten in trouble from the Directors Guild of America for not actually being more involved.

It's clear that Trank has talent, especially when watching his breakout hit Chronicle. But that was 2012, and since then he's been wrapped up in controversy with Fantastic Four and now this project.

That's not the case with Edwards' Rogue One: it's hitting a critical point in its development, as both Felicity Jones and Hunger Games' Sam Claflin have been cast. In addition, conceptual images were released at Celebration that suggest the movie was more of a war epic than a struggle between Jedi. With some of these benchmarks already in place, Rogue One seems to be in good hands. Trank's former project, not so much. As for Fantastic Four, expect that August 2015 film to become a greater lightning bolt of controversy as we get closer to its premiere.

KAHLIL GIBRAN’S THE PROPHET TRAILER & RELEASE DATE

KAHLIL GIBRAN’S THE PROPHET OPENS AUGUST 7 IN NY & LA FOLLOWED BY NATIONAL EXPANSION.



The Prophet, by celebrated Lebanese author Kahlil Gibran, is among the most popular volumes of poetry ever written, selling over 100 million copies in forty languages since its publication in 1923. Gibran’s timeless verses have been given enchanting new form in this painterly cinematic adventure about freedom and the power of human expression.

This breathtaking animated feature, produced and spearheaded by Salma Hayek, was an official selection at Cannes and made its North American premiere at Toronto International Film Festival. Written and directed by Roger Allers (The Lion King), the film intersperses Gibran’s elegant poetry within stunning animated sequences by filmmakers Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea), Nina Paley (Sita Sings the Blues), Bill Plympton (Guide Dog), and a host of award-winning animators from around the world. Set in a Mediterranean sea-side village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra, (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa’s return home – but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will incite rebellion. Featuring music from Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Lisa Hannigan and Yo-Yo Ma.

We will need you full name and mailing address

Based on an 1828 French ballet of the same name and inspired by choreographer Frederick Ashton’s love of the Suffolk countryside, La Fille mal gardée is one of the choreographer’s most joyous creations. Laced with good humor as a whirl of dancing chickens, grouchy guardians and halfwit suitors take to the stage, Ashton’s final full-length ballet incorporates some of his most virtuosic choreography to depict a charming, simple tale of boy meets girl. With elements of national folk dance incorporated throughout, from a Lancashire clog dance to a traditional maypole dance, this emphatically English work has remained a celebrated classic in The Royal Ballet's repertory since its successful premiere in 1960.

Movie Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron is a terrific thrillride and a (somewhat) worthy adversary to the original.

Review by Matt Cummings


Director Joss Whedon exits the Marvel Cinematic Universe in high style with the satisfying follow-up to his 2012 blockbuster. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, his team of heroes have taken down the last vestiges of Hydra, leaving a big question for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to consider: does the Earth need The Avengers anymore? The answer comes quickly when Stark tries to develop Artificial Intelligence in the form of Ultron, a global peace-keeping robot. But an ancient weapon soon corrupts his creation, overtaking JARVIS (voiced by Paul Bettany) and spawning a machine of pure hatred (voiced by James Spader), whose plans to rule humanity start by destroying it. As Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), the fragile Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest of The Avengers face Ultron's minion twins Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), the team must eliminate a global threat while trying to keep each other's personalities from destroying Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Let's be clear: Ultron is not 2012's The Avengers, which was as good a film as you could get, nor is it Captain America: The Winter Solider. Both executed their stories flawlessly, filled them with excellent music and memorable performances, and had game-changing endings that elevated them into the national zeitgeist. Ultron gets close, but ultimately suffers from a dull soundtrack by Composers Bryan Tyler and Danny Elfman, along with a hardened belief that bigger is always better. There's no connection to next year's Civil War, nor is Hydra around enough for us to feel that they were either valuable or even worthy of our attention, based on the events surrounding Winter Soldier. Their rather quick exit makes a lot of what Agents of SHIELD feel unrelated to this story and therefore less important. The big-scale action pieces are just that, but none of them are memorable like those of the original. That may not be a fair criticism to some, but in this case bigger isn't always better.

Ultron doesn't want to be a moving experience about the moral questions of AI, and that's ok: it wants to be a big-budget, funny, and energetic film about a team of A-types who still have trouble trusting one another. That formula plays really well throughout, but those hoping for a gut punch ala The Empire Strikes Back will be in for a disappointment. Still, its emotional core - the price of freedom and the challenges of trust and doubt - provide a nice balance to the menagerie of mayhem that leaves some characters in pretty rough positions by film's end. It's also an experience best seen multiple times, with the action, dialogue, and big-movie moments demanding your return, if only to merely catch everything. Sometimes these can be issues that undo the experience (see The Wedding Ringer), but not here.

Director Joss Whedon excels at mixing the Marvel Studios directives with his keen sense of place and how it plays a part in telling the story. His opening sequence is another 360-degree throwdown, complete with several trademark 'money shots' throughout the film of the team being bad-ass superheroes. He's as much a geek as a filmmaker, perfecting the team's combined skills at several points, but is also aware of how new characters like Vision and the twins can interact and learn from The Avengers' harsh battlefield experiences. Olsen gets plenty of moments to show why she's a great Scarlet Witch. Taylor-Johnson isn't Days of Future Past's Evan Peters in any way, which is a letdown considering how high Peters set the bar, even with the horrible press leading up to the 2014 release. Taylor-Johnson is capable, but Whedon the Writer doesn't give him much to do except run fast; granted, he's granted a good monologue which explains why he and Witch join Ultron, but there's no personality behind his Eastern European accent.

But for everything wrong with Ultron, there's more than enough things here that work very well. A film with this much to say is gonna take awhile, but the 141-minute epic doesn't drag. Spader is excellent as the murderous robot, his plans for worldwide destruction drawn with a perfect balance of dark humor, then indignation as he realizes the true might of The Avengers. Whedon imbues him with as much style as Spader himself brings to the role, making his interaction with Stark and Cap in key sequences all the more enjoyable. Evans and team fit their roles like a pair of comfortable shoes, from Hemsworth's Asgardian arrogance to Ruffalo's tortured Banner. Johansson reveals new layers to Black Widow, while we see once more the fragile tapestry that is RDJ's Tony Stark. His dialogue with Evans makes up the film's best dramatic duo, as both use very different methods to keep the world safe. But this also Renner's movie, perhaps a response to the shove he got in the original; here, the reveals are significant, but we also learn just how dangerous he is without the bow. His response to being a non-powered hero also provides for some of the best meta-humor of the franchise.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is not quite as good as its predecessor, but its emotional core and humor are definitely as enjoyable - and perhaps more so - than the original Avengers. With Marvel moving forward on its Cosmic Universe line, and introducing other Earth heroes that will soon grace the big and small screens, Ultron is the last time we'll see this lineup in its current form for several films. That's too bad, because Earth's Mightiest Heroes (and the film itself) certainly works. Don't listen to the critics and their poo-pooing: Ultron is a satisfying penultimate conclusion to Phase 2, and certainly worthy of multiple viewings in large-format theaters.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action, violence and destruction, and for some suggestive comments and has a runtime of 141 minutes.

New #SPECTRE Vlog & Images

Here is the latest vlog from the set of SPECTRE. The behind-the-scenes footage focuses on a car chase with the Aston Martin DB10 and the Jaguar C-X75, featuring Director Sam Mendes, actor Dave Bautista (Mr. Hinx), Special Effects Supervisor Chris Corbould, Stunt Coordinator Gary Powell, and Action Vehicles Technical Coordinator Neil Layton.



See all the images after the Jump...


Sam Mendes (Director)
“I love the idea of this fantastic car being in a one-on-one battle with another incredible car from Jaguar, which is similarly extraordinary actually. So it’s a cat-and-mouse game through the night time streets of Rome, at great speed, between two of the fastest cars in the world.”


Dave Bautista (Mr. Hinx)
“It’s amazing. It’s one of those scenes that’s going to be very iconic. Just with the two cars racing through the streets of Rome – I mean, how often do you see that? It’s one of those things you only see in a James Bond film.”

A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. SPECTRE is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, from a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.

SPECTRE is set for global release on November 6, 2015.

#Robotech May Have Found It's Director

According to Deadline, Universal’s Furious 7, director James Wan is in early discussions with Sony Pictures to direct Robotech, the feature adaptation of the 1980s sci-fi anime series that is being eyed as a worldwide franchise.

Wan is one of the hottest directors in town after Furious 7‘s success — it has grossed $1.3 billion so far in worldwide box office — and has a lot of offers on the table. But I’m hearing he and Sony are going to try and make this work though the deal talks are in the beginning stages.

Word is Wan is all for the opportunity to originate a franchise like he did with Warner Bros/New Line’s The Conjuring, which now has a second pic that he plans to direct coming out in 2016.

Hollywood Gang’s Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton are producing a script from Michael Gordon, reuniting the trio who worked on 300. The original U.S. TV series Robotech was based on three different Japanese series and focused on the use of robotic technology found on a crashed alien starship that Earth used to fight off various alien invasions. The Harmony Gold-produced series has a place in the fanboy Hall of Fame for introducing a generation of American kids to the visual style and open-ended storytelling of anime.

Aside from Furious 7′s mega-success Wan has an overall producing deal at New Line anchored by the Conjuring movies and has been mentioned for other projects including DC Comics’ Aqua Man at Warners and his graphic novel adaptation Malignant Man at Fox.

Loot Crate Review: April 2015

What did we think of April 2015's Fantasy-themed box? Click below to find out!

Review by Matt Cummings
After a good March 2015 box that saw Spies as its theme, April arrives with a box chock full of memorable Fantasy goodness. The monthly geek subscription box service is among dozens of entries vying for your hard-earned dollars, with Loot promising a nice return on your $20 monthly subscription. Its hand-picked, cool geeky collection wrapped around a theme faces a lot of competition, but let's see why April's unquestionably slayed its dragon.
I love this nondescript sex toy of the month packaging.
Upon cracking the case, we find a map and an awesome Dungeons and Dragons t-shirt. I loved this game as a kid, and seeing it return to a shirt near you was a great way to start off the experience. This one alone was probably "worth its value" but as you'll soon see, there's lots of interesting stuff in which to partake.
Another favorite film from my youth was The Princess Bride, and these themed playing cards look great! Inside you'll get painted images of each memorable character and a famous quote from the film. For Carey Elwes' Westley, it's the classic "As You Wish." Very, very cool.
Next up are a dragon-themed bow tie and an inflatable crown. Based on the image of the crown in the magazine more on that later), this would make an excellent party gift. The bow tie is small, so I'll probably be dumping that on eBay. I wish we would have had the choice of a bow- or traditional tie, but the thought to include one at all is great.
The HBO hit series Game of Thrones makes it appearance in two important ways: first up is a 4GB "Stark Sigil" themed drive in the shape of a wolf. Flash memory is so cheap these days that it's impossible not to find them at discount stores everywhere, but its shape makes it a keeper. Another impressive Thrones addition piece to the Crate is a set of magnets. According to the description, "Whichever house you favor, show off your pride with this set of four sigil magnets featuring the the feudal clans of mythical Westeros." Awesome.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of this month's Crate is The Harry Potter Luggage Tag. It's made of solid rubber, which means it will look great on your backpack or travel accessory. I would not, under any circumstances, put this on checked luggage: it's so nice that someone at the airport will seek to relieve you of it. Yes, it's that nice, and yet another solid addition to the Crate.
The final pieces - a button showing off this month's theme, and Loot Crate Magazine #21 - are standard additions to each Crate. The magazine features articles including the Mega Crate, which goes to one lucky subscriber. Some lucky subscriber is to take home a $2,500 prize, which includes 2 LED monitors and a gaming computer. Lucky!! Again, I didn't win this month, so Loot Crate you better get to it!
In the end, April 2015's Loot Crate is a solid and satisfying submission. It's probably the best of the three I have received, with everything screaming quality. The disappointing February box is out of mind now, and with Loot Crate asking for my opinions of April, I feel like the company is trying to make a better effort to give us quality gear. Done, done, and done. I could easily flip the contents on eBay, but I'll be keeping most if not all of it. I know, so greedy... Discuss this review with fellow SJF fans on Facebook.

Sony Producing Female Installment of 21 Jump Street

School will be in session for female cops.

By Brandon Wolfe

Sony Pictures is proving most predominate in providing female alternatives to its most popular male-driven franchises. First there was the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, which will open next summer, and now word has come down that the studio will also craft a girl-centric installment of its popular 21 Jump Street series. Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs, the writers of Comedy Central’s Broad City, have been hired to write a script, said to be in the same vein as the two existing Jump Street films.

This project will be produced in addition to another original-recipe Jump Street sequel with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill returning. That film is still a question mark, as the end-credits sequence of 22 Jump Street seemed to take a flamethrower to the very idea of doing yet another sequel. It came out in last year’s Sony hacking scandal that the studio was considering merging the Jump Street universe with the Men In Black franchise for the next outing, but no word on if that idea is still in play.

Speaking of, how long until Sony greenlights Women In Black? Or Bad Girls? And then how will they convince people that those movies aren't a horror sequel or a Western, respectively?
