Up until this past weekend, “The Avengers” had the title for highest-earning opening weekend, but now “Jurassic World” is the reigning champion.
After tallying up the total domestic sales figures, the Chris Pratt flick surpassed the Marvel films’ $207.4 million with $208.8 million, and when added to its $315.3 million international take, “Jurassic World” is also the biggest global opener of all time.
Last year Disney’s “Maleficent” was one of the hottest films to hit theaters, and it sounds like there’s a second installment on the way.
According to Deadline, Angelina Jolie is working out the details to reprise her role as the Mistress of All Evil while original screenwriter Linda Woolverton and producer Joe Roth are also attached to the project.
All good things must come to an end, and the uber-popular “Hunger Games” franchise will drop its final film on November 20th, 2015.
Earlier today (June 9), Lionsgate released the first official trailer for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2,” featuring Katniss Everdeen as she leaves the safety of District 13 to fight the Capitol and bring down President Snow once and for all. She declares, “He corrupts everyone and everything. He turns the best of us against each other.”
Back in 2013 he announced he’d be producing a film adaptation of the comic book “The Sandman” and two years later Joseph Gordon-Levitt is ready with an update.
While chatting with press at the 2015 Guys’ Choice Awards over the weekend, the “Dark Knight Rises” hunk told MTV News, “It’s slow but steady. It’s a really complicated adaptation because those comics, they’re brilliant, but they’re not written as a whole. It’s not like Watchmen, which is a graphic novel that has a beginning, middle, and end. Sandman was written over the course of whatever, I forget exactly, six or seven years. One at a time. One little 20-page issue at a time. And to try to take that and make it into something that’s a feature film — a movie that has a beginning, middle, and end — is complicated.”
