  • It was also announced this week that America's favorite super villain, Thor's Tom Hiddleston will be playing the lead in a new King Kong spin off, tentatively titled Skull Island. The film, which will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Funny or Die Presents...) and written by Max Borenstein (Godzilla), will probably follow some group of explorers while they tour the island where King Kong and other creatures live.

New Project Announcements!

  • It was announced this week that a reboot to the popular 90's horror film, I Know What You Did Last Summer, is in the works!

  • Warner Bros. announced this week that Fox has given a pilot order to Luficer, a new show featuring the aforementioned comic book character in the DC Comics universe. The potential hour long drama will star Satan and follow his life after he resigns his throne and moves to the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles where he proceeds to open a piano bar. (this is all real). Lucifer is yet another title added to Warner Bros slate of televised comic book characters which also includes Arrow, The Flash, Constantine, Gotham and iZombie.

Weekend Box Office Projections*

  1. The Maze Runner - $11 Million+
  2. A Walk Among the Tombstones - $5 Million+
  3. This is Where I Leave You - $4.5 Million+
  4. No Good Deed - $4 Million+
  5. Dolphin Tale - $3 Million+

The Maze Runner, the newest young adult film to hit theaters will take the lead this weekend, raking in at least eleven million. The success of the relatively inexpensive film is good news for 20th Century Fox as a sequel is already in the works.

Meanwhile Liam Neeson's A Walk Among the Tombstones will likely take second place. The relatively low gross of Tombstones may be an indication that Neeson's 'tough guy' phase may be coming to an end.

Finally, this weekend's other wide release, the family drama, This is Where I Leave You starring Jason Bateman and Tina Fey, disappointed with a low 3rd place finish.

Interstellar News!

This week, Empire shocked the world with a brand new theatrical poster for Christopher Nolan's upcoming space epic, Interstellar. The film, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Craine in some kind of space adventure has a plot that is still almost completely shrouded in mystery and even though the new poster is very pretty, it does nothing to help reveal any plot points other than the fact that the Earth is in trouble.

Interstellar will be released on November 7th. Check out the new poster below...

The Movie You Should Have Seen This Weekend

Although the three big releases at this weekend's box office are A Walk Among the Tombstones, the Maze Runner and This is Where I Leave You, there is actually a fourth film out there in theaters. The film you should have seen: Kevin Smith's Tusk. Tusk follows Justin Long, who plays a journalist that becomes imprisoned by a kooky old man with a love of walruses.

What is most interesting about this film is the way that it came about. The idea of the film originated on an episode of Kevin Smith's SModcast podcast titled 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' In it, Smith and his producer discussed a real story about a man offering free lodging if his occupant would agree to dress like a walrus. The story escalated from there and after Smith's fans agreed that the movie should be made, Tusk was born.

If you're not sold yet, check out the trailer below:
