Captain Marvel (2019)
Speaking to Collider earlier this month, Kevin Fiege addressed the runtime in less specific terms: “We’re gonna release the movie at the exact right running time,” he said. “I’m telling you this, it’s gonna be perfect. It’s gonna be the exact running time that the movie needs to be.”
He continued, “In all seriousness, we don’t look at run times in terms of mandates, or anything like that. Every movie should feel like it’s an hour and 45 minutes. Now,
Aquaman was a juggernaut at the box office and is currently the highest grossing DC movie in their history and the 8th highest in terms of superhero movies. With that being said, Shazam! has a lot to live up to and more than likely won't be joining the $1 billion club during its theatrical run. However, the movie did just earn $3.3 million, thanks to Fandango's preview screenings. That easily tops Aquaman's Atom/Amazon preview take of $2.9 million.
Film and distribution consultant Beatrice Neumann, writer/producer Meg LeFauve, producer Kristina Ceyton, Screen Herd content strategist Beatrix Holland and Bonsai Films founder Jonathan Page are among those to speak at women collective Dame Changer’s upcoming Screen Tank event.
To be held in May in Sydney, Screen Tank offers the opportunity to learn from senior industry specialists about how to accelerate screen projects to market.
Twelve successful applicant projects will take part in an intensive three-day workshop, including a project market review session. At the conclusion of the program, teams will have the opportunity to pitch their projects to distributors in one-on-one meetings and receive constructive feedback.

“The inaugural Screen Tank 2018 was an incredibly empowering experience for everyone involved,
Speaking to CinemaBlend, the Thor: Ragnarok star remarked that the McU currently has a lot of female stars that she’d like to work with, the latest addition being Captain Marvel lead Brie Larson:
“Brie is a friend, and I just like hanging out with her; and I’m so excited. Obviously it’s been a long time coming for Marvel to have a movie led by one of their female characters that exists in the canon… Last year
In the latest Jay & Silent Bob Reboot photo, Jason Lee's Brodie Bruce is looking at the Captain Marvel comic in his hand and many of us are wondering what 2019 Bruce thinks about the first female-led Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Whatever the case may be, it's a direct reaction to the Mallrats shout out in the Carol Danvers standalone movie.

Unicorn Store follows a young woman named Kit after she's been kicked out of art school and forced to move back in with her parents. Despite her creative, escapist ways, Kit resolves to "grow up" and takes a temp job for a PR firm. Everything changes when she meets the mysterious salesman of "The Store" (Jackson), who promises her childhood's greatest desire and leads her down a path to discovering what true magic really means.
From the looks of the trailer - and the flashy suits we really need a closer look at - it's safe to say Unicorn Store is going to be one vibrant adventure.
“TV is more than just entertainment, it’s cultural,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said Monday at a presentation at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. “TV at its best enriches our lives and we can share it with people we love.”
Cook announced that the new service for original television will be titled Apple TV+. He then handed off the presentation to original-video heads Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg. A video promoting the company’s new shows featured creators such as Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, Sofia Coppola, M. Night Shyamalan, Ron Howard, Octavia Butler, Damien Chazelle, Jennifer Aniston, and Hailee Steinfeld.
Spielberg appeared onstage, receiving a standing ovation from the Apple home crowd. Spielberg touted the revival of his “Amazing Stories” anthology.
Anticipation for Apple’s streaming-video product has been steadily building since 2017, when the tech giant
When Captain Marvel first lands on Earth, she crashes into a Blockbuster video in the year 1995 where she blows away a cardboard cutout of Arnold Schwarzenegger. As Carol Danvers observes her new location, she picks up a VHS copy of classic 1980s movie The Right Stuff. This movie is also shown in Jordan Peele's Us, but for a much different reason.
We got a little backstory for her in the film on how she rebelled against the Kree after coming to Earth and took on the mission of ending the war between the Kree and the Skrull for good.
Mar-Vell was one of the more interesting characters, and there’s a whole cool background story there and a legacy to explore. Well, it seems like Marvel might expire that legacy in the McU. Kevin Feige teased in an interview with ScreenRant:
"Will we see it lived through more? Yeah. I mean, I think one of the things that's fun to us about the timeline of this film and the
Speaking to ScreenRant, Feige was asked a variety of questions about the McU and “Captain Marvel,” in particular.

Sunday is 7% better than the $15.7M originally expected yesterday. Though exit polls for Us were behind Get Out‘s, that never stopped the box office momentum for Peele’s latest. Essentially, the pic’s ending has folks divided, and that’s why those exits are lower. Nonetheless, it has moviegoers talking, and that word of mouth is driving tickets sales coupled with Peele’s brand wattage. The biggest inherent selling tool all along for Us was Get Out, and audiences wanted more Peele. We always write about how the star system no longer works at the box office, but directors like Peele, Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino and to varying degrees Steven Spielberg; their names alone sell their movies,
In “Captain Marvel,” the nod to the Best Picture Oscar nominee comes when Vers — a.k.a. Carol Danvers — crash lands on Earth and finds herself in a Blockbuster Video. As she looks around, she picks up a VHS copy of “The Right Stuff,” which was one of the inspirations behind the film.
“The Right Stuff” tells the true story of the seven military pilots who were selected for the Nasa project to launch the first ever manned spaceflight. In a similar way,
In an interview with ScreenRant, the producer explained that Captain Marvel was a journey of self-discovery that was characterized more by friendship than romance:
“Well that was something as we were developing the script and queuing off of the comics as always, it never even occurred to have a love interest. That’s not what the movie was about. It was about Carol finding herself and growing and making mistakes and being bolstered up by her female mentors and female friends.”
While there’s nothing stopping Marvel from giving Carol a
Opening on Wednesday, the Showbox release earned $12.0 million from 1.54 million admissions in five days. That included $587,000 from preview screenings. Its Friday-Sunday take ($8.85 million) accounted for 59% of the country’s total weekend box office.
Disney’s “Marvel” slipped to second, incurring a week-on-week drop of 62%. It earned $3.09 million for a total of $41.2 million after three weekends on release.
Two other Wednesday openers, “Jo Pil-ho: The Dawning Rage” and “Idol” took landed in third and fourth, respectively. Previously known as “Bad Lieutenant,” “Jo Pil-ho” earned $1.47 million over five days. Directed by Lee Jeong-beom the latest Korean-language production by Warner Bros. follows a cop who takes bribes, connives corruption
“Cletus Kasady is back, and he is deadlier than he’s ever been,” writer Donny Cates revealed in a video announcement that kicked off Marvel Comic’s C2E2 panel.
“Absolute Carnage encompasses every single character who has ever worn a symbiote and every symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter found the black suit,” he continued, “Going from there to Maximum Carnage to Venomized to everything…”
Even the series’ preview page on Marvel.com is teasing that “This summer, no Super Hero is safe…everyone is a target!” and it’s kind of true. After all, most of Marvel’s hit characters have bonded with a Klyntar symbiote at some point or another, including Deadpool, Captain Marvel, and even the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Here's What Woody Harrelson's
“Get Out,” which landed a screenwriting Oscar for Peele, became one of the most profitable movies of 2017 (grossing $255 million globally on a $4.5 million budget) after the horror film captured the zeitgeist with its exploration of race relations in America. Even with the sky-high expectations set for “Us,” the filmmaker’s second directorial effort, few predicted just how many moviegoers had boarded the Jordan Peele train.
“Us,” a psychological thriller about a family confronted by their doppelgangers, put industry projections to shame when it debuted to a massive $70 million in North America, nearly doubling forecasts heading into the weekend. The studio and tracking services predicted it would net a three-day total in the $38 million to $45 million range. “Us” now boasts the second-best debut of the
Just take this newly surfaced image of a giant promotional standee for instance, which comes to us courtesy of Reddit user Slodis. Essentially, the design is a variation of the layout we saw on a recently released international poster, only with a big Avengers-a sitting right in the middle. As with much of the marketing material that’s come before it, this standee is going with a predominantly purple and gold color scheme in reference to a certain Mad Titan, whose head is practically camouflaged on the left side of the image.
Alongside Thanos, the standee displays the main line-up of heroes for next month’s release, from Phase 1 stars like Iron Man and Thor, to relatively
Taiwanese romantic drama More Than Blue easily retained the China box office crown, grossing $68m to account for more than half of the total takings in the seven-day period March 18-24.
However the total March box office is down 17% on the same periodlast year which was boosted by blockbusters including Black Panther, Pacific Rim: Uprising and the tail-end of Operation Red Sea’s run.
Produced by Singapore-headquartered mm2, the Taiwan-set Mandarin-language romantic drama More Than Blue has now grossed $115.3m to date, making it the biggest Taiwanese film in China of all time,
