9 Lessons Studio Films Should Take From The Indie World This Summer

9 Lessons Studio Films Should Take From The Indie World This Summer
Much has been written about just how dismal this year’s summer movies have been, but one of the silver linings in such a poor season has remarkably been indies. Where blockbusters like “The Legend Of Tarzan,” “Warcraft” and “X-Men: Apocalypse” failed, indies such as “The Lobster,” “Cafe Society” and “Love and Friendship” succeeded. And while studios were certainly rolling in cash when it came to “Suicide Squad” and “The Secret Life Of Pets,” critics weren’t exactly impressed. It was a rough season for studio films, but it won’t be a total waste if executives can learn from their mistakes and start course correcting. Below, we look towards the indie world in order to offer up the biggest lessons for studio films.

Image announces new crime series The Fix

Image Comics has announced that the Eisner-award nominated team of bestselling writer Nick Spencer (Morning Glories) and artist Steve Lieber (Detective Comics, Whiteout) are teaming up again for the all new ongoing crime series The Fix, which will launch in April.

“After working with Steve on Superior Foes of Spider-Man, and having so much fun there—it’s an absolute thrill getting to work together again here at Image on a book that’s creator-owned, and being able to push the envelope of our humor to new, um, lows,” said Spencer. “The Fix is us at our most demented, and it’s a blast.”

“I’m happy to say that The Fix is a truly funny story about truly awful people,” adds Lieber. “Nick Spencer, Ryan Hill, Nic Shaw and I are all working hard together to create an endlessly surprising tale full of shining moments of self-centered garbage humanity.

First Look at The Crucifixion from Xavier Gens & The Conjuring Team

Fench director Xavier Gens is currently shooting The Crucifixion, a supernatural thriller written by Chad Hayes whose past credits include The Conjuring, House of Wax and Whiteout among others. The film is being produced by Peter Safran whose credits include some pretty stellar thrillers like Buried and the upcoming Martyrs remake.

The Crucifixion sounds intriguing in its story. Rather than a straight forward story of exorcism, it seems to revolve around a journalist and a priest who is facing murder charges in the wake of an exorcism gone wrong.

We've got the first look at the film including some stunning photography as well as a test shot of a terrifying figure that's being refereed to on set as the "Faceless man".

Interview: 'Fortitude' creator Simon Donald discusses his chilling Pivot mystery
On Thursday (January 29), Pivot premieres the intriguing new Arctic Circle mystery "Fortitude." Now you have the better part of the day to figure out where Pivot is hiding on your TV dial. "Fortitude" is set in a chilly and alien world in which both the characters and the ice hide secrets. Featuring a strong cast led by Richard Dormer, Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine and Sienna Guillory, "Fortitude" was created by scribe Simon Donald, whose credits include the original incarnation of "Low Winter Sun." At TCA Press Tour earlier this month, Donald and I sat down over a couple pints and discussed "Fortitude," starting with its brutal opening scene. We talked about the decision not to have Tucci do a Scottish accent, the drama's environmental message and the hints at horror or supernatural elements. It's a good conversation about a good show. Check out the Q&A.

Film Review: Incredible Personal Tour in ‘Antarctica: A Year on Ice’

Chicago – Along with your local library’s DVD section and equality, Antarctica remains one of the general world’s greatest oversights, even though it’s the size of a continent (because it is one). Around this time of year, the North Pole gets a huge shoutout for its mass production of brand items, but it’s the South Pole that forever remains in the shadow of everything else in the world, only mentioned in films like Werner Herzog’s 2007 documentary “Encounters at the End of the World,” or that 2009 Kate Beckinsale snow thriller “Whiteout.”

Rating: 4.0/5.0

As it turns out from Herzog’s doc and now first-timer Anthony Powell, there is more to Antarctica than a giant rock of frozen water. And where Herzog’s (highly recommended) documentary comes solely from his viewpoint as definitively curious outsider, this week’s release “Antarctica: A Year On Ice” by Powell presents the continent from an insider’s perspective.

Rock Returns For Two More "Journey" Films

New Line Cinema has hired "The Conjuring" scribes Chad and Carey Hayes to pen a third and fourth film in its 3D "Journey" franchise.

Starting in 2008 with "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D," the film scored a sequel in 2012 with "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" which saw Dwayne Johnson take over for Brendan Fraser as the adult male lead. Johnson is expected to return for both the new sequels.

The Hayes became known for penning numerous films for Dark Castle including "House of Wax," "The Reaping" and "Whiteout" before hitting it big with "The Conjuring". They're returning to pen that film's upcoming sequel, and also wrote Johnson's in production earthquake disaster thriller "San Andreas".

The Hayes will take over for previously attached screenwriters Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn, and are expected to "take the project in a different direction than what had been in development before."

Interview: Greg Rucka On ‘Lazarus’, ‘Gotham Central’ TV Show & His New Series ‘Veil’

Fifteen years ago, Greg Rucka bursted onto the comic book scene with his Eisner Award winning series, ‘Whiteout.’ Fast forward fifteen years later and Rucka is one of the most recognizable names in comics. He has worked for all of the major comic book labels, tackling some of the most popular superheroes including Superman, Wolverine, and Wonder Woman. Most readers will know Rucka from his work on the Eisner nominated series ‘Gotham Central’ which explored the lives and adventures of the Gotham City Police Department.

Rucka recently has turned his attention to creator owned projects. He successfully funded a print version of his web comic, ‘Lady Sabre,’ on the popular crowd funding site Kickstarter. He is also working on his popular ongoing series ‘Lazarus’ through Image Comics.

Kate Beckinsale Considering The Disappointments Room

Kate Beckinsale Considering The Disappointments Room
No, The Disappointments Room is not the storage locker where Kate Beckinsale keeps the various drafts of the Whiteout screenplay. It’s actually a new supernatural thriller script she’s been offered and that I Am Number Four’s D.J. Caruso is down to direct.The Disappointments Room would see Beckinsale as a mother who moves her family to a storied mansion in the country. While it has plenty of land and lovely architecture, she discovers it also comes with a gruesome history and starts to slowly go insane when plagued by visions of a dead girl. We always hate it when the estate agents leave that off the listing.Wentworth Miller, who already demonstrated his scripting chops with Stoker, wrote this one and the project is now set to be touted at the American Film Market. Beckinsale isn’t firmly aboard yet, but the producers will be hoping she

Ellen Page In Negotiations For 'Queen & Country' Lead

by Brett White

Ellen Page is dipping her toes into a second comic book franchise—and this time it will be as the lead. Variety has reported that the actress currently playing Kitty Pryde in Fox's X-Men film franchise is in negotiations to headline the adaptation of Greg Rucka's spy-series "Queen and Country," originally published by Oni Press.

The film focuses on Tara Chace, an agent for England's Special Operations Section of the Sis, as she tries to stop a terrorist plot. The film is being eyed for a potential franchise, possibly in the vein of the "Bourne" series. Variety also reports that giving Page a franchise has been in the works for a long time, after working with the actress on a number of different projects.

The Raid: Redemption Remake To Be Penned By Battleship Scribes

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of hundreds of action cinephiles softly weeping around the world.

In one of the more dismaying news items of the month (and that’s including the widely contested casting of Ben Affleck as Batman), the American remake of Indonesian martial arts flick The Raid: Redemption, which just clocked in at #21 on We Got This Covered’s list of the Top 100 Action Movies, has just landed in the hands of Battleship writers Erich and Jon Hoeber.

I’ll wait while you scan that again to make sure you read it right. Unfortunately, this is not some kind of a prank. American film studio Screen Gems, trusted with the rights to remake a terrific genre flick, has inexplicably sanctioned the same writers who brought us the godawful Whiteout and so-bad-it-hurt Battleship to rewrite the script for the American version.

Summit hires screenwriters for Red 3

Despite the fact that the action-comedy sequel Red 2 doesn't hit cinemas until July, Summit Entertainment must be confident that it has another hit on its hands, with Deadline revealing that the studio has hired screenwriting siblings Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (whose credits include Red and Red 2, along with the 2009 thriller Whiteout and last year's Hasbro board game adaptation-turned-alien actioner Battleship) to pen the script for Red 3.

The Red franchise is based upon the comic book series by Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer and centres on a trio of 'Retired, Extremely Dangerous' ex black-ops agents, portrayed by Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich. The forthcoming sequel sees Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) taking over directing duties from Red helmer Robert Schwentke, while Mary-Louise Parker returns to the cast alongside new additions Byung-hun Lee (G.I.

The Top 11 Movie Serial Killers

Serial killers have long been the stuff of which nightmares are made. The serial killer sub-genre of horror has brought us some amazingly memorable characters that still haunt us to this day. On February 19th Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will bring us a new name in fear with The Factory.

Starring John Cusack and Jennifer Carpenter as detectives tracking a murderer, The Factory is set in the bitter cold of a Buffalo winter. A great place to hunt a hunter. And to celebrate the release of this newest addition to the sub-genre, we've compiled a list of the Top 11 Movie Serial Killers.

There is certainly a long list of names to choose from, but we narrowed the field a bit by limiting it to those who were just regular human people. No supernatural involvement here, just a person or group of people who've gone off the deep end and made

'Hawkeye' #7 named Hurricane Sandy Relief issue
Hawkeye #7 will serve as a Hurricane Sandy Relief issue. Matt Fraction has altered the schedule of his Marvel Comics title to include the issue, the royalties of which he will donate to charity. Artists Steve Lieber (Whiteout) and Jesse Hamm (Good As Lily) will join him for two stories of heroism set around the storm that ravaged the East Coast of North America in October. "Hawkeye has turned out to be a book about a regular guy doing superhuman things so this seemed the appropriate place to tell a story about precisely that - regular people, real people, coming together in the face of this once-a-century scale disaster," said Fraction.

Comics: Matt Fraction To Donate Hawkeye #7 Royalties To Hurricane Sandy Relief

This January, Clint Barton and Kate Bishop redefine what it means to be a hero as a devastating storm hits the Marvel Universe in Hawkeye #7! Blockbuster writer Matt Fraction teams with Eisner Award winning artist Steve Lieber (Whiteout, Whiteout: Melt), and artist Jesse Hamm (Good As Lily) to tell not one, but two stories of heroism that will resonate with fans worldwide. Separated by the massive storm, follow both arrow-slingers as they struggle to help those who need it most make it out of this tragic event in one piece. "Hawkeye has turned out to be a book about a regular guy doing superhuman things so this seemed the appropriate place to tell a story about precisely that -- regular people, real people, coming together in the face of this once-a-century scale disaster," explained writer Matt Fraction.

Cohaagen and Lori Pop up in Yet Another New Total Recall Clip

Another fresh clip from Len Wiseman's sci-fi action reboot 'Total Recall' has risen thanks to Hollywood.com. The clip, entitled 'Activated', comes flying up the ass of the previous gun slinging clip we featured on the site yesterday (hit the link below) and once again features the delectable Kate Beckinsale -below ('Whiteout') this time along with co-star Bryan Cranston who plays the role of bad guy Cohaagen. Not too much to go on again here but it still has similiarities to its Paul Verhoeven helmed 1990 counterpart. I guess we'll find out what nods and winks the original will get in the remake when it hits theatres this August. Colin Farrell ('Fright Night'), Jessica Biel ('The Tall Man'), Bill Nighy ('Shaun of the Dead') and Ethan Hawke ('Daybreakers') also star...

Taylor Kitsch and Peter Berg contributed to the Battleship script

In an interview with Screen Rant, Battleship star Taylor Kitsch said that:

"I think you will get (director) Pete Berg's, as well as my own, flavor in there. We're very collaborative, and we co-wrote a lot of those scenes. And it has that feel of a Pete Burg movie, which is so fun. But he definitely doesn't forget about character. And that guy can tell stories just as good as anyone else."

He went on to say:

"It's how collaborative Pete and I are. It's really how much we admire working with each other. It was just bouncing ideas... He would send me the script and be like 'I want you to rip it in half. Do it.'...and he'd be like 'No. Yes. Cool. I'm thinking about it.' It was great."

Taken out of context, that makes Berg sound really indecisive, or at least ambivalent, but
