Live Action #Mulan Film On It's Way

On the heels of the magical success of Disney's live-action Cinderella , the studio is eyeing another live-action retelling: Mulan according to THR . Disney bought a script by writing team Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that centers on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, the female warrior who was the main character in Disney's 1998 animated film. Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (We're the Millers) are producing the new project vie their banner Benderspink with Jake Weiner. The 1998 film, directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook, followed a young woman who disguises herself as a man so she can take her father's place in the army and go to war. With the help of her trusty dragon sidekick Mushu, she becomes a skilled warrior and, eventually, one of the country's greatest heroines. It earned $304.3 million worldwide, earned Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations and resulted in a 2005 direct-to-DVD sequel, Mulan II. Disney has been on a roll with its live-acti

Movie Review: #Cinderella Gorgeous Sweeping Landscapes, A Generous Helping Of Bibbity Bobbity Boo

With plenty of gorgeous sweeping landscapes, a generous helping of bibbity bobbity boo, and a tightly corseted heroine, Cinderella makes her way to theaters as Disney's latest princess to get a live action adaptation. It stays very close to the original 1950's telling, not taking the generous liberties that last year's Maleficent did, but it still has plenty to inspire dreams and foot fetishes. After her father unexpectedly dies, young Ella ( Lily James ) finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother ( Cate Blanchett ) and stepsisters, who reduce her to scullery maid. Despite her circumstances, she refuses to despair. An invitation to a palace ball gives Ella hope that she might reunite with the dashing stranger (Richard Madden) she met in the woods, but her stepmother prevents her from going. Help arrives in the form of a kindly beggar woman who has a magic touch for ordinary things. Director, Kenneth Branagh brings his picturesque landscapes and lo

March 2015 Films On Our Radar

What does the March box office have in store for us? We pontificate in our On the Radar Preview. Story by Matt Cummings January 2015 was filled so many interesting titles that no one apparently wanted to see, prompting us on a recent Inside the Bucket podcast to wonder why that month landed with such a thud. When February rolled around, we weren't exactly impressed with the plate Hollywood had placed before us, hence the reason why we didn't present a Preview article. Apparently all of you felt the same. February was the lowest since in terms of box office performance since 2006 ($533.2), with 50 Shades of Grey 'leading' before literally melting away after a strong opening. And yet, the box office is up 10%, for a variety of reasons that could repeat in 2016 if distributors have learned their lesson. March has also traditionally been a weak month, as evidenced by less-than-stellar numbers during the last four years: 2014: $741.2 (-24.9% from 2013) 201

What's Behind 2015's Early Strong Box Office?

The reasons for success could change the way movies are made, marketed, and released. Story by Matt Cummings With January and February box office typically representing a rough couple of months for Hollywood, it comes as a surprise that 2015 has been one of the most robust in years. With receipts up 10% from the same period one year ago, theater owners are selling more popcorn and not having to shut down entire wings of their buildings due to the lack of traffic. The reason - or reasons - are simple: American Sniper and Fifty Shades of Grey . These two titans have pushed ticket sales and general admission numbers to points that we typically don't see until April - that's when tentpoles and more lucrative productions begin to arrive, ushering in the wave of Summer blockbusters. Sniper has made $307.7 million since its opening in January, while Grey became the biggest debut for a movie in February history when it bent over a four-day total of $93 million. B

Disney Wants A Live Action "Cinderella" Movie

Disney Wants A Live Action "Cinderella" Movie After Disney’s new version Alice in Wonderland turned in a 3D record breaking opening weekend of $116 million and became a global juggernaut, there has been a resurgence of movie interest in timeless classics. For instance, there is a stampede for public domain literary properties like The Wizard of Oz, and Warner Bros is mulling a new version. Universal Pictures is trying to figure out when to unveil a movie version of the stage musical smash Wicked. Now Disney has made a 7-figure pitch deal for Cinderella, the working title of a live action reimagining of the classic fairy tale to be written by Aline Brosh McKenna. She’s the scribe behind The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses, and the upcoming Paramount comedy Morning Glory, and We Bought a Zoo, the Fox comedy which Cameron Crowe will direct--with Fox just setting a December 23, 2011 release date. Simon Kinberg will produce the new version of Cinderella.  Disney, of course, m
