Audiences Cheer ‘Jojo Rabbit’ But Some Aren’t Laughing, Amazon Hits The Fest Big Time & More – Toronto
Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit had its world premiere last night at the Toronto Film Festival, and though it will certainly have its naysayers due to a controversial approach to its subject matter — it features a comical Adolf Hitler character, among other things — the movie was rapturously received with a raucous standing ovation by the first night crowd who seemed to eat it up. Early critic reviews are more divided on Rotten Tomatoes, split just about down the middle.

The crowd reaction, however, justifies distributor Fox Searchlight and Disney’s decision to debut it at Tiff in front of a more urban/cosmopolitan city audience, where they thought it would be an audience-pleaser (at least this audience), and that strategy certainly seemed to work at the Princess of Wales theater last night, followed by a party at Arcane which was so crowded a few guests looked exhausted just trying to

David Leitch hasn’t heard from Disney about Deadpool 3

David Leitch, the director of Deadpool 2, reveals that Disney hasn’t yet contacted him about Deadpool 3.

One of the most fascinating things about the Disney takeover of 20th Century Fox is how they will handle their newly acquired R-rated properties like Deadpool.

Deadpool is one of the most beloved superhero franchises out there but with David Leitch’s recent comments, it seems like Disney haven’t yet spoken to him about making a third movie. Talking to ComicBook.com, the director said:

“In everybody’s world, everybody wants to make it. So, if I was ever approached to make Deadpool 3, my answer would be, ‘Hell yes,’ but I think there’s a lot of things going on in the shake up with Fox and Disney and where that whole Marvel world after Endgame is gonna be. When the dust settles, let’s hope that Deadpool lives. That’s kind of ironic,

Godzilla vs. Kong may be pushed back due to King of the Monsters’ underwhelming box office

With Godzilla: King of the Monsters delivering somewhat underwhelming box office returns, the $170 million-budgeted blockbuster having grossed just $292.3 million after two weeks of release, it seems we may now face a longer wait until we see the legendary kaiju squaring off against the Eighth Wonder of the World.

During a Producers Guild of America conference, Warner Bros. chief Toby Emmerich has suggested that the studio may push back the release of the MonsterVerse crossover Godzilla vs. Kong (currently slated for March 2020) in an effort to save off any further franchise fatigue.

“[Godzilla vs. Kong] will deliver for fans in the way they were looking for [in King of the Monsters],” said Emmerich. “It might come out later in the year, so we can deliver an A+ movie.”

Godzilla Vs. Kong in Danger of Being Delayed

Godzilla Vs. Kong in Danger of Being Delayed
We may have to wait a little longer than expected to see Godzilla Vs Kong, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters is likely, at least in part, to blame. The legendary kaiju is set to square off against King Kong in an epic battle next year, which will serve as the fourth entry in what has been dubbed by Warner Bros. as the MonsterVerse. It also includes Godzilla (2014) and Kong: Skull Island. However, it sounds like the studio is intent on making sure this latest entry delivers for moviegoers and, in turn, delivers at the box office.

This comes from Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich. Under his watch, Warner Bros. has become very franchise-focused in order to better compete in the marketplace. The executive recently spoke about the future of the studio following last year's merger with AT&T, which resulted in a new media conglomerate by the name of WarnerMedia,

Godzilla vs. Kong monster fight compared to Rocky vs. Drago

Michael Dougherty, director of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, has compared the epic battle ahead in next year’s MonsterVerse crossover Godzilla vs. Kong with the classic Rocky vs. Drago matchup in Rocky IV.

While many fans around the world are eagerly anticipating Godzilla: King of the Monsters, they also have their eyes on the film in the franchise that comes after that, the much anticipated Godzilla vs. Kong.

It’s surely going to be a colossal tussle between the two monsters but writer Michael Dougherty has offered a comparison to whet the appetite, likening it to the David vs. Goliath fight between Rocky and Drago in Rocky IV. Speaking to Bloody Disgusting, he said:

“We’re looking at an almost David vs. Goliath situation. Because everyone, the moment you say Godzilla’s going to fight Kong, your first reaction is Kong doesn’t stand a chance. Godzilla’s got his radioactive breath,

Filming wraps on Godzilla vs. Kong

Although we’re still a little over a month away from the release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Legendary Pictures has already completed production on the next instalment of the MonsterVerse, with director Adam Wingard making the announcement on Instagram that filming has wrapped on Godzilla vs. Kong.

The film will bring together the King of the Monsters as featured in 2014’s Godzilla and next month’s sequel, as he clashes against another of cinemas most iconic monsters in King Kong from 2017’s Kong: Skull Island. It will be the second time the two titans have clashed on the big screen after Toho’s 1962 crossover King Kong vs. Godzilla.

Godzilla Vs. Kong Gets Earlier Release Date

  • DailyDead
Following the release of Michael Dougherty's Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Entertainment will continue to expand their cinematic Monsterverse with Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020. Originally slated to stomp into theaters in May, Godzilla vs. Kong has now been given an earlier release date from Warner Bros.

According to Box Office Mojo, Godzilla vs. Kong is now scheduled to come out in theaters on March 13th, 2020, moving it up more than two months from its previous release date, so we won't have to wait quite as long to see this colossal cinematic showdown.

Directed by Adam Wingard, Godzilla vs. Kong features a cast that includes Millie Bobby Brown, Brian Tyree Henry, and Alexander Skarsgård. For more information, we have the previous press release with the official synopsis and full cast list:

Godzilla Vs. Kong Gets New Earlier Release Date

Godzilla Vs. Kong Gets New Earlier Release Date
We have good news for fans of giant monster action, as Godzilla Vs Kong is going to arrive quite a bit earlier than previously expected. Production kicked off on the highly-anticipated blockbuster in November and it will serve as the fourth entry in the MonsterVerse, which kicked off in 2014 with director Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. While it took some time to get the big guy back on screen again, we're going to be seeing plenty of him over the course of the next year, alongside quite a few classic monsters.

Warner Bros. recently did some shuffling around with their release schedule and they've decided to move up Godzilla vs. Kong to March 13, 2020. Previously, they had the movie set within the early summer blockbuster season on May 22, 2020. However, Universal also recently did some reshuffling and they decided to put Fast and Furious 9 on that very same May 22 date. So, to avoid

Godzilla vs. Kong stomping into cinemas sooner than expected

Things appear to ticking over nicely when it comes to Legendary’s MonsterVerse. Michael Dougherty (Krampus) revealed that Godzilla: King of Monsters was already in the can, months before its May 31st, 2019 release, and now the in-production Godzilla vs. Kong has been moved forward two months from its original release date of May 22nd, 2020.

Blu-ray Review – Once Upon a Deadpool (2018)

Once Upon a Deadpool, 2018.

Directed by David Leitch

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy.

Synopsis:

I guess this is Deadpool 2.2? Once Upon a Deadpool is a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 wrapped in a parody of A Princess Bride, complete with a grown-up Fred Savage sitting in a recreation of that famous bedroom set and forced to listen to Deadpool read the story of the movie to him. It’s a funny idea, but whether this is worth owning on home video depends on how big of a fan you are, since there are no bonus features included on the disc.

‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ Review: ‘Attack the Block’ Director Joe Cornish Returns with a Fun Slice of Revisionist History

‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ Review: ‘Attack the Block’ Director Joe Cornish Returns with a Fun Slice of Revisionist History
Joe Cornish’s long-awaited and largely delightful follow-up to “Attack the Block” is a unicorn of a children’s fantasy movie: It’s imaginative, it’s heartfelt, and it never feels like it’s trying to sell you anything more than a measure of hope for the future. Cornish may bite off a bit more than he can chew by trying to reinvent Arthurian legend as an epic, ultra-contemporary adventure for the kids of Brexit-era Britain, but the guy hasn’t been able to direct anything in more than eight years, so it’s hard to fault him for an excess of pent-up ambition (especially not when the least effective parts of his movie involve a crazed Patrick Stewart running around in a Led Zeppelin t-shirt).

The Kid Who Would Be King” may not be the equal of its influences, but even its awkward second act is sprinkled with a

Second Opinion – Once Upon a Deadpool (2018)

Once Upon a Deadpool, 2018.

Directed by David Leitch.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Fred Savage, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy.

Synopsis:

“To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence.”

Ho! Ho! Ho! Wait, can you get away with that in PG-13 rating? If Once Upon a Deadpool is anything to go by, it seems like you can get away with quite a bit of insanity. Yes, the once-graphic Rated R superhero film tries to lessen the violence and language in a fun attempt at making the film more family-friendly. This new retelling of Deadpool 2 not only gains a new younger audience, but it finds a way to make a cash-grab seem like something more. Take

Once Upon a Deadpool Review: PG-13 Cut Adds Big Laughs and More Heart

Once Upon a Deadpool Review: PG-13 Cut Adds Big Laughs and More Heart
Once Upon a Deadpool is a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2. The film hilariously recreates The Princess Bride with Deadpool reading the story to a grown-up Fred Savage in bed. It's a shameless box office grab that actually works. Once Upon a Deadpool skewers itself mercilessly. The film pokes fun of its obvious plot loopholes, Deadpool 2's success, and Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox. The studio will donate a dollar for every ticket to the F**k Cancer Charity, which has been renamed Fudge Cancer to keep up with the wholesome new theme. The blood, cursing, and drug use is mostly cut, but the film is still insanely violent. The wholesomeness comes with a bullet.

Fred Savage wakes up to find Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) at his bedside. It seems our foul-mouth hero loves The Princess Bride and wants to tell a more family friendly Deadpool 2. Fred Savage,

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (Aka. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow rogues to protect a young boy from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.

Hoping to capitalise on mid-December Christmas cheer and milk the kiddie market for some easy superhero box office bucks, Fox has re-released Deadpool 2 in a re-edited PG-13 format for a special limited theatrical engagement, festively titled Once Upon a Deadpool.

Somewhat amusingly, despite the violence, profanity and general lewdness being significantly toned down from the original May theatrical release, the new edit still received a “15” rating in the UK, matching the rating granted by the

Godzilla Is Here to Make Humans His Pets in New ‘King of Monsters’ Trailer (Video)
The new trailer for “Godzilla: King of Monsters” shows Thomas Middleditch explaining to a congressional committee what’s at stake with the “Titans” ravaging the Earth. They have to determine which ones are here on the planet to protect us, and which are here to threaten humanity.

“So you’d want to make Godzilla our pet,” a senator asks in the trailer. “No, we would be his,” Ken Watanabe’s character solemnly responds.

Michael Dougherty’s film, a sequel to the 2014 “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” as part of a planned cinematic MonsterVerse from Warner Bros. and Legendary, locks all the world’s kaiju in a battle with Godzilla for global dominance. In the film and as seen in the new trailer, he’ll collide with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
