Disney Planning OZ Sequel

Disney already is prepping a return to Oz . Studio has commissioned a follow up to “Oz the Great and Powerful” from screenwriter Mitchell Kapner, who co-wrote the first film with David Lindsay-Abaire. While no plot details are yet available, Kapner can work with what’s featured in L. Frank Baum’s novel “ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz ,” which is public domain. But he can’t use any of the iconic creative additions from the original film — Dorothy’s ruby slippers, for example — as Warner Bros. owns the 1939 film. “ Oz The Great and Powerful ,” which bows Friday, is considered a prequel to the earlier film. Disney declined to comment on sequel plans. Kapner’s previous bigscreen credits include “The Whole Nine Yards” and “The Whole Ten Yards.” Grant Curtis and Joshua Donen also are producers on “Oz.” The Mouse House tapped Kapner several months ago to work on the sequel, with the studio confident in the playability of the Sam Raimi-helmed film starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, R

Original Gang Returns For Star Wars Episode VII

Tip your rumour box into the fact drawer because George Lucas says that Star Wars originals Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford will be returning for the next instalment of the franchise. It's confirmation of Fisher's own hints and those of a rather more circumspect Hamill over the past few weeks and populates Episode VII with familiar and much-loved faces. Chewie, it's your move. "We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison - or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation," Lucas told Bloomberg Businessweek . "So I called them to say, ‘Look, this is what’s going on.’ Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them." He added coyly, “I won’t say whether the negotiations were successful or not.” Please Leave A Comment- Source- Empire

Oz: The Great And Powerful Review. Good Bu Not Memorable

Oz: The Great and Powerful  Review By; MattInRC Oz: The Great and Powerful is good but not memorable. Releasing a sequel to a classic film has always represented a daunting task - how do you create a satisfying follow up to 2001: A Space Odyssey or tell the origins of Darth Vader without alienating your core audience? The answer is, you don't: trying to replicate a classic is like sticking your hand in a blender and hoping gold comes out. That's the feeling I got after watching Oz: The Great and Powerful , which succeeds as an origin story but won't stay with you after the lights come up. Oz ( James Franco , Spider-man franchise) is a small-time illusionist in a 1905 traveling circus whose parlor tricks are scoffed at by his small Kansas audiences. He wants the fame of Harry Houdini and Thomas Edison, along with the women, but life doesn't seem ready to grant him his wish. These first scenes, shot in the old black & white/4:3 dimension, show that

February Box Office Woes

February Box Office Woes By: MattInRC Hollywood is off to a terrible 2013 start. Read on to learn how bad it's gotten. While a poor start in Hollywood is always something that can be turned around, things aren't looking so pretty for a successful 2013. Continuing the trend we first discussed in January, box office numbers for February and a poor opening March weekend continue to display an ongoing problem for the industry: how to bring in the big crowds. According to our friends at BoxOfficeMojo , February 2013's theater receipts came in at around $617 million, as compared to 2012's record $818 million. That's a change of 24% from last year and over 10% from 2008-2010. Our own calculations verify the malaise that's held down Hollywood since the new year chimed in. We compared the top 10 films in February 2012 ($729,186,032) with those of this year ($574,350,764) which indicates a slightly smaller decline of 22%. But things get worse when you add J

2012's Box Office Woes. What Do You Think?

2012's Box Office Woes By: MattInRC 2012 represented one of the best years for films in many years - The Avengers, Ted, Skyfall and others drew crowds to multiple showings with their original and well-written scripts, while creating instant Oscar buzz for Lincoln, Les Miserables and Moonrise Kingdom . In fact, revenue for 2012 was up 6.4% from 2011 with 1.4 billion people going to the movies, which on the surface would represent a win. But dig deeper into Hollywood's peak season - first week of May to Labor Day - and those numbers tell you a very different story. According to figures released from the Huffington Post and Box Office Mojo, we're surprised and disappointed to report that Hollywood actually had a record-low year. The actual number of tickets sold, a better indicator of foot traffic, was down 4 percent (532 million tickets) during the summer season, which represents the lowest amount since that number was tracked. Why should anyone care? Think about how mu

21 And Over Review. Settle In For A Great Time

21 And Over Review By: MattInRC The Hangover-like 21 And Over smells like Hangover , looks like Hangover, and is almost just as funny. When a hipster film like  21 And Over  makes its appearance in theaters, it can't help but be linked to its parents - the eminently-satisfying Hangover - or any number of slightly lesser but just as satisfying efforts over the past decade. Over doesn't forge new territory, nor does it do anything bigger or better than Hangover, but it seems very content in the role of providing moviegoers with as raunchy an entertainment experience as possible. Miller ( Miles Teller ), Casey ( Skyler Astin ), and Jeff Chang ( Justin Chon ) are high-school buddies who've taken very different paths since graduation: Miller is the college dropout, happy to party first and ask questions later, while straight man Casey seems more ready to be 40 than experiencing the best years of his life. Both arrive to surprise Chang on his 21st birthday, un
