17 October 2017 12:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Netflix may be raising their prices, but they're putting that money to use. Whether or not you consider that to be good use is more of an issue of personal taste, but they're certainly happy to spend the money. As revealed during a recent quarterly earnings report, Netflix plans to release a staggering 80 original movies next year, which is up significantly from the 50 they've released in 2017. Here's what Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos had to say about it.

"They range anywhere from the million-dollar Sundance hit, all the way up to something on a much larger scale...I think people will start seeing the potential for this original movie initiative, that it could be done on the enormous scale we have on the television side."

It Comes at Night Dp Drew Daniels on New Lenses, Old Dogs and Using Actors as Bounce Cards

29 September 2017 2:51 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

As the end credits rolled after my screening of Trey Edward Shults’s It Comes at Night, a perturbed woman behind me angrily groused, “This is bullshit. What comes at night?” In her defense, the mesmerizing trailer for the film from A24 certainly leads you to believe something is in fact coming at night — a concrete something, not a metaphoric something. But no horrific, plague-mutated creatures ever arrive at the red door that separates the apocalyptic outside world from the isolated home of Paul (Joel Edgerton) and his family (wife Carmen Ejogo and son Kelvin Harrison Jr.).

‘Men in Black’ Spinoff Draws ‘Iron Man’ Writers, Sets Release Date

29 September 2017 12:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures is fast-tracking its “Men in Black” spinoff, setting the sci-fi pic to bow on May 17, 2019.

Sources also tell Variety that “Iron Man” scribes Matt Holloway and Art Marcum will pen the script.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not reprise their roles in the film, which is meant to launch a new franchise with fresh talent involved. Sony had originally planned on combining the “Men and Black” and “21 Jump Street” franchises, but have since tabled that idea.

“John Wick: Chapter 3” is the only other film so far debuting on May 17, with Disney’s “Aladdin” — starring Smith — opening the following week.

Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing with Steven Spielberg exec producing. David Beaubaire is overseeing the pic for Sony.

The original movie followed Smith and Jones, who played agents of a secret organization known as the Men in Black and protected Earth from intergalactic bad guys. The »

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord

29 September 2017 9:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy was considered a risky proposition for Marvel Studios, even after the runaway success of their cinematic universe building films like Iron Man and The Avengers. These characters hang around in outer space! There are aliens on the team! There's a talking raccoon! So it was nothing short of incredible when Guardians of the Galaxy earned nearly $800 million and a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. A big part of James Gunn's action-comedy masterpiece depends upon the charisma of Chris Pratt, who leads the team as Peter Quill, the film's relatable half-earthling who rocks badass tunes in his headphones while kicking ass as Star-Lord. But it almost didn't happen that way. As there were plenty of other big names vying for the coveted role.

It may seem crazy to think about now, but at the time, Pratt was mostly known as lovable doofus and Mouse Rat frontman Andy Dwyer on NBC's Parks and Recreation. »
