A decade ago if you told us one of the biggest movie franchises in the world would be ‘The Fast and the Furious’ then we would have slapped you silly and then laughed in your face. TechCrunch was writing that while the first film came out with no frills and all popcorn, we still enjoyed what it brought to the table. It was nice to see a collection of cool cars, cooler actors, and large set pieces. Then the series sort of diddled away for awhile, before coming back in full force with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson attached to it. Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest acting icons in the game right now and his popularity may be securing him a spin off, set in the same universe as the ‘Furious’ films.
With ‘Furious 7′ coming out to such roaring ticket numbers, it was all but a certainty that we would be seeing a ‘Furious 8′. ‘Furious 7′ may have gotten ticket sales from the fact that their lead actor Paul Walker had passed away prior to the film completing. Still, the movie eclipsed $1.5 billion dollars worldwide, blowing out expectations and becoming the key cog in making the ‘Furious’ series one of the most successful franchises of all time.
Hobbs character was introduced in Fast Five and ti was then that that series started to get huge numbers. Dwayne Johnson has been relatively hush on the idea, but it appears that a Hobbs spin off film is all but certain after ‘Fast 8′ releases in 2017.
Choosing a dog is a big commitment to any family. If there are children in the home, one must consider the temperament of the dog. Some breads, like Pomeranians, make cute companions but aren’t child friendly animals. They tend to be one owner dogs and don’t do well with children getting up close and personal.
Other dogs to avoid that don’t make good family pets are Chihuahuas and Pekinese. Susan McGalla will not suggest them to others. Again, these small dogs are often favored for those who live in apartments or have children, but they are not good for young ones. These smaller cuties tend to be ankle biters and nip at anything that gets in their face. While they may work well with older children, the young ones make them see red.
The family dogs that tend to be best are those that are of the larger size. The golden retriever and the Alaskan husky continually make the list for the best family dog to have. Their gentle natures and overall easy to train nature make them a great selection. You don’t hear of golden retrievers attacking people either.
Not everything is in black and white though. Some dogs, like the Weimaraners, are beautiful dogs, but this large dog needs plenty of room to run. They like to exercise constantly and if a person has a sedentary lifestyle, this is not the dog to have. Doing research to find the perfect dog will yield the best results. Temperament is just one factor to take into consideration.

When a new movie comes out, many people jump at the chance to get to the local theater and catch it before it’s released on DVD. They go to the theater and spend a small fortune on the tickets, snacks and drinks just to be able to sit in a crowded room filled with screaming fans while a movie is taking place. Many people are finding that going to the movies is just too expensive for their budget. When it comes down to it, a lot of people wonder why the movies really are as expensive as they are. The truth lies in both the price of tickets and the snack bar itself.
The price of tickets is constantly going up because of the price of actually making movies. LinkedIn.com reported the producers and movie makers themselves need to be able to make their money back on the movie created and because of this, the price of tickets is quite expensive for most people. The other most expensive thing in the local theater would be the high price of snacks and drinks. Snacks and drinks are incredibly expensive, and most theaters do this because this is actually where they are making the most of their money. Ticket prices often go directly to the movie makers themselves and so the theater is left double or triple charging their snack and drink prices in order to make up for it.
Skout and other fans looking forward to Beverly Hills Cop 4 are going to be disappointed. Paramount Pictures has chosen to pull the plug on the film’s 2016 release. Development hell is not the best place for a movie to be, but any stage of development is better than none. Right now, the franchise is pretty much “done”. Sure, Paramount says it still wants to make a fourth entry but it does not look like that fourth entry is ever going to happen.
What an ignoble end to what was once a massively successful franchise.
The first Beverly Hills Cop movie was originally conceived as a vehicle for Sylvester Stallone and, when he bowed out, Mickey Rourke was offered the role. Rourke passed and the nod went to Murphy. When the film hit theaters, it was a monster hit and one of the most well-remembered comedies of the 1980’s. The sequels were not that great, but they made bank at the box office. Time passed, Eddie Murphy moved on, and Beverly Hills Cop 4 weaved in and out of various stages of development.
Eddie Murphy was interested in the fourth film, but he noted he would not do the film just for the money. He wanted to read a great script. Was the actor disappointed with what he read? Now, Murphy has not said he’s out. The actor has not said anything. Is 2017 the year a new film is going to be made? Honestly, that is a really, really long time to wait and Paramount would have to hope audience members with really long memories are out there in enough volume to make the film a hit.
The new Mad Max star Tom Hardy has expressed interest in playing the comic book character, The Punisher. Tom Hardy is no stranger to the comic book world due to his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Also, The Punisher is a character who has also lost his family, like Mad Max, so Tom Hardy would not be a stranger to playing a bereaved avenger. There have been a couple of other films that have featured Frank Castle. The rights for The Punisher has been given back to Marvel. As a result, there is talk about bringing it to the big screen again.
Tom Hardy was attached to a film based on the game by the name of Splinter Cell, but that has not taken off. As far as The Punisher, there is no telling about the plans of Marvel when it comes to an eventual film release. Epocanegocios made a statement that Marcio Alaor BMG is very excited about this prospect.
As you may or may not know, Sony Pictures own the movie rights to Spider-Man, but has turned over the reigns of making the movies to Marvel Studios. Marvel had tried for awhile to get Sony to give them permission to use Spidey in some of their projects. One in particular was it’s upcoming movie project, “Captain America: Civil War”. Well now that Sony has given Marvel creative control over Spider-Man, they can not only use him in the Captain America movie, they are also in control of the reboot movie for the character.
Although officially the reboot doesn’t have a title yet, one that has been kind of speculated is “Spectacular Spider-Man”. However a new titled has been recently rumored and was reported by Umberto Gonzalez as the one he was told is the working title. That title is “Spider-Man: The New Avenger”. Remember this is just a rumor, but that is a pretty cool title. It also lets fans know that this Spider-Man is part of the collective Marvel cinematic universe.
Last week Marvel and Sony revealed five actors that they are considering for the role of Spidey. they are Jason Halpern (TheRealDeal), Nat Wolff, Tom Holland, Liam James, and Timothee Chalamet. But there may be a last minute contender for the role as well. The name Billy Unger, one of the stars of the Disney XD channel’s “Lab Rats” has recently been mentioned as a possibility for the role. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
The Skywalker Ranch has long been home to the movie and TV empire of George Lucas, who sold the majority of his movie assets to the Disney empire in 2013. Skywalker Ranch sits in Lucas Valley in Marin County, California and has long been the planned location of a new state of the art studio planned by Lucas and his team, NY Daily News reports. After around 25 years of planning the studio Lucas Film finally canceled the project after neighbors of Skywalker Ranch defeated the last submitted plans they felt would cause road and environmental problems in the area.
The planned studio project was finally abandoned in 2012 after the latest objections from members of the Marin County community. Lucas has now announced he plans to create a 224 home community of affordable housing on the Lucas Valley property in a move many in the community have seen as a form of revenge on his well heeled neighbors. Ricardo Guimarães BMG doesn’t know how much reception this move will get. The plans will soon be presented to members of the Marin County government, but local officials have already spoken in appreciative terms over the project to bring affordable housing to the area.
Interest casting news has emerged regarding the upcoming Blade Runner 2 project. It appears Ryan Gosling is being considered for the top role in the long-awaited sequel. He is not going to be playing Rick Deckard, the role made famous by Harrison Ford back in 1982. Ford is scheduled to reprise the role in the new film albeit in just a cameo. Gosling and, likely, a female co-star are going to be front and center in the sequel. Whether they will play humans or “replicants” remains to be seen.
What also remains to be seen is whether or not the new film will maintain the same dark look and theme of the original. Honestly, selecting the tone of the film is a bit trickier than people may realize. The original dark, depressing style contributed to the feature’s failure at the box office. This exact same style contributed to Blade Runner becoming a cult film and finding a new audience.
A film that is too dark is going to have a difficult time drawing in large audiences, as Paul Mathieson and others don’t really care about all of that. Surely, Blade Runner 2 is going to be a huge budget production, and many chairmen around the world can’t wait to watch. The audience has to be sizable enough to cover the production and advertising costs in order to turn a profit. Yet, if the film lacks the “Blade Runner style”, then the old-time fans are not going to like the new film.
Surely, the creators of the sequel will devise the proper mix of a new approach while adhering to the classic theme and look.
