"Halo: Reach" Earns $200 Million In First Day Release

"Halo: Reach" Breaks Records " Halo: Reach ," Microsoft's prequel to one of the video game industry's biggest franchises, recorded more than $200 million in sales in the U.S. and Europe on its first day. Microsoft late Wednesday highlighted that the sales for the first 24 hours make "Halo: Reach" not only its biggest game release ever, but also the biggest U.S. entertainment launch of the year. Its one-day gross exceeded the opening weekend box-office hauls of Hollywood blockbusters such as " Iron Man 2 ," " Alice in Wonderland " and " Toy Story 3 ," the company emphasized. The new game, which hit stores Tuesday, also exceeded the previous "Halo's" first-day haul of $170 million, which had set an opening record in 2007. But it fell short of the record $310 million in sales set last year by " Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 ." "Reach" is an Xbox 360-only title, while the Activisi

Sacha Baron Cohen To Portray Mercury In Upcoming Film

Sacha Baron Cohen To Play A Queen Are you ready for Borat to play a queen?  Sacha Baron Cohen has closed a deal to play Queen front man Freddie Mercury in a film that’s being scripted by Peter Morgan for a 2011 production start. The untitled film will be financed by GK Films partners Graham King and Tim Headington, who'll produce in partnership with Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal’s Tribeca Productions, and Queen Films. Morgan is already working on a script focused on the band’s formative years, leading up to Queen’s appearance at Live Aid in 1985. Queen’s performance is considered one of the rock's all-time great live concert appearances. A rights package has been set that includes the band’s tunes, including Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions , Another One Bites The Dust and You’re My Best Friend. It is unclear whether Baron Cohen will sing—I’m told he can sing—or whether Mercury’s vocals will be used. Nobody sang like Mercury, so trying to rep

Russell Crowe The Man With the Iron Fist

Russell Crowe Knows Kung Fu? Hip-hop artist and actor RZA tells me that Crowe has signed on to costar with him in The Man With the Iron Fist , a kung fu flick the Wu-Tang Clan founder is also directing. RZA will play a weapons-making village blacksmith in feudal China—and as for Crowe, RZA doesn't want to say too much. "I won't spoil it for you, but Russell's gonna be the baddest man alive," he told me yesterday at the VMAs. "That man is in fighting shape. That man will knock you out." The Man With the Iron Fist (no relation to the Marvel Comic superhero Iron Fist) starts shooting in Shanghai in December. "It's nerve-wracking," RZA said of directing Crowe. "He's a master of the craft. I'm quite sure that I may learn something from him." Crowe and RZA worked together three years ago in Ridley Scott's American Gangster . They even recorded a song together, but Gangster producers decided not to include it on t

“Thor”Film To Stand On It's Own

“Thor”Film To Stand On It's Own “ Thor ” director Kenneth Branagh is a big fan of the “ Iron Man ” tandem of director Jon Favreau and star Robert Downey Jr. , but he says his entry into the ever-expanding cinema of the Marvel Universe will be quite different in tone and construction. “It’s a different story, and also, in that regard, Jon is a bit of a genius when it comes to that orchestration and getting the max out of another genius in Downey,” Branagh said. “It’s how you dance pretty close to the edge to get the sort of modernity and the edge that ‘Iron Man’ has and the real sharp comic sensibility of those two men,” he said. “So it’s a different kind of dance. “I think ‘Thor’ comes from a different place story-wise and character-wise. We have both Norse histories for Thor, hundreds of myths and fables told in many different ways, in addition to what Marvel has pillaged for the past 40 years or so to come up with their version of things, which sits in very strong str

Goosebumps To Get Hollywood Treatment

Goosebumps To Get Hollywood Treatment Screenwriter Carl Ellsworth " Red Dawn " (Will this film ever get released? Call MGM) and " Disturbia " co-writer has come aboard to write the screenplay for a live-action feature adaptation of the R.L. Stine book series " Goosebumps " for Columbia.

Ryan Reynolds Talks Deadpool Film

The Merc With A Mouth Talks Deadpool Film Ryan Reynolds hopes to be the face of two competing superhero franchises with “ Green Lantern ” and “ Deadpool ” but, after reading the gleefully subversive script for the latter, he isn’t too concerned about moviegoers getting the characters confused. “It goes in such a different direction than a superhero movie usually goes,” Reynolds said over lunch recently at 101 Coffee Shop. “It’s a nasty piece of work. It’s just based in so much emotional filth, completely. It’s like ‘Barfly‘ if it were a superhero movie. It sort of treads into the world of an emotionally damaged person. I always say that Deadpool is a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral…. It’s so different than the superhero movies to date, it departs so far from that.” In “ Green Lantern ,” due next summer, Reynolds plays Hal Jordan, the cocky but courageous test pilot who becomes the first human member of the Green Lantern Corps, an interstellar peacekeeping group armed wi

The Original Avengers vs. The New Avengers By:Jonathan Cyfer

The Original Avengers vs. The New Avengers By:Jonathan Cyfer The Avengers is a unique superhero team because, from the very beginning, they were never meant to have a permanent roster. If you recall the comic book origin from way back in 1963, The evil Loki , half-brother to the heroic Thunder God, was planning a trap for Thor by tricking the powerful but hapless Hulk into destroying a railroad trestle. At the last second, the Hulk was able to save the train, including passengers and crew, from falling into a canyon, but it was too late to keep him from being branded a "killer". Loki was hoping to trick Thor into going after the Hulk, then springing whatever trap he had in mind, but he goofed. When he diverted a radio message about the Hulk's attack that was intended for the Fantastic Four , so that it could be heard on an ordinary radio in the office of Dr. Don Blake (Thor's alter ego), he didn't count on it also being picked up by Tony Stark (
