Andy Serkis rallies for digital performer rights

Performance capture pioneer also talked about Venom 2, Animal Farm.

Andy Serkis has called for the greater protection of rights for digital performers.

Speaking at the Ibc Show in Amsterdam, the UK filmmaker and performance capture artist questioned where the boundaries lay when an actor was digitally captured.

”If an actor’s performance from one movie is re-used in another there should be remuneration for that actor, no question,” said Serkis. ”It is their performance and… they should be paid for it.

“When your performance becomes data it can be manipulated, reworked or sampled, much like the music industry samples vocals and beats.

Richard Kelly Possibly Returning with Rod Serling Biopic

Barring an unforseen arrival between now and 11:59:59 on December 31, we will have gone a stem-to-stern decade sans Richard Kelly. The wormhole-traveling mind behind Donnie Darko, Southland Tales, The Box, and, of course, Southland Tales: The Prequel Saga (I only sort of joke; it is actually great) hasn’t disappeared from lack of trying: in years past there was nearly the Edgar Ramirez-led Corpus Christi, Amicus—once headlined by Nicolas Cage, then James Gandolfini, reportedly almost off the ground before the latter’s untimely passing in 2013—and word of a Donnie Darko return that has yielded nothing for us to consider. Our great interview from 2017 evinced he was working, but I could’ve told you that, too. For one of the American cinema’s worst decades ever, his absence feels too on-the-nose.

Let’s lead into the 2020s with some good news, or intimations of it: per Production Weekly (via Comicbook.

Robert Pattinson Reveals What It Was Like Wearing The Batsuit For The First Time

After years of delays, The Batman is finally edging closer to production. With Ben Affleck stepping away from the role, Cloverfield and Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves is gearing up to get the latest Batman movie in front of cameras, with Robert Pattinson stepping up to don the iconic cape and cowl.

The next cinematic outing for the Dark Knight has been the subject of speculation and rumors from the moment it was first announced, and while there are still no concrete details yet about the plot or the other members of the cast outside of the title character, we now know that Pattinson has already tried on the iconic costume.

Speaking in a recent interview, the 33 year-old admits that while there’s a sense of awkwardness that comes with being wedged into an uncomfortable outfit, there’s also a certain sense of pride and power that comes

Robert Pattinson Isn't Fazed by His Batman Doubters: 'It's Much More Fun When You're an Underdog'
Robert Pattinson is ready to step into Batman‘s shoes — and his Batsuit.

In a new interview with Variety — his first since being confirmed as the new caped crusader — Pattinson shared that he had grown up watching the Tim Burton Batman movies and once had his own Batman costume.

“When I was a kid, it was the only outfit that I had,” he said.

After news broke that Pattinson, 33, would be taking over the role previously played by George Clooney, Christian Bale and Ben Affleck, among others, the internet was divided, but the actor told Variety that he wasn’t fazed by the doubters.

10 Animated Spin-Offs As Good As The Movies They’re Based On

We’re going to be totally blunt here: most cartoon shows based off hit movies are terrible. A quick online search will return numerous examples of this dubious phenomenon, including poorly conceived animated outings from franchises like Star Wars, RoboCop, Planet of the Apes and more.

But not all cartoon series inspired by live-action films are a bust. On the contrary, a select few even live up to the high standard set by their source material – which is especially impressive when you remember that many have been retooled to appeal to a much younger audience! With this in mind, here’s a list of 10 Animated Spin-Offs As Good As The Movies They’re Based On.

Disney "Largely Ignored" X-Men: Dark Phoenix After Fox Acquisition

Kirsten Howard Aug 14, 2019

As if the final X-Men movie, the generally unloved Dark Phoenix, didn't have enough problems.

If you thought you'd heard the last of Dark Phoenix's rocky road to cinemas, think again. After being hit with an objectively terrible reception from both critics and audiences alike, Fox's final X-Men outing is still getting dragged through the mud.

It emerged at the start of August that X-Men: Dark Phoenix was one of the key reasons that Fox lost $170 million in the second quarter of 2019, and a new report reveals that Simon Kinberg's X-Men swan song was likely Doa before it was even released, with Disney dumping the film's marketing team, and putting in as little effort as possible to support the film.

Per Variety, "Disney largely ignored Dark Phoenix after it acquired 20th Century in March, according to sources. The marketing team familiar with the film was laid off,

New Details Emerge on Fox’s Future as Disney Nitpicks the Studio’s Film Slate

So far, Disney‘s acquisition of 20th Century Fox is not turning out so well for the House of Mouse.

More Planet of the Apes Movies are on the Way from Disney

It almost sounds as though Christopher Fiduccia of ScreenRant is thinking that Disney might be making a wise move with the idea of continuing on with the Planet of the Apes movies, but truthfully it almost feels like they’re reaching at this point, trying to push something that just isn’t there and perhaps bring to life something that was already on its way to being complete. A lot of us know that the original Planet of the Apes didn’t end happily for humans since it was determine that apes finally took over and the world as we knew it came

Mega Man, Magic: The Gathering & Sims Movies All Cancelled by Disney?

  • MovieWeb
Update: A representative for Walt Disney Studios has personally reached out to confirm that this story is not true. It is 100% fake news that Disney has canceled over 300 movies reportedly in development. The story originated from a fake list of film titles that someone posted on an Imgur account. Neither Disney nor Fox would have 'hundreds' of movies in development all at one time, and it is noted that if true, no studio would just storm in and cancel everything in one fail swoop. As for the fates of Mega Man, Magic: The Gathering and The Sims Movie, we haven't had an update on those in a while, and all three could very well actually happen in the future.

Original story: Several planned video game based movies in the works will no longer see the light of day, as Disney has unplugged a handful of them in one fell swoop.

The Avatar and Planet Of The Apes Franchises Will Be a Priority for Disney

Disney Studios recently reported a $170 million operating loss during its fiscal third quarter due to the Fox acquisition, and a lot of the blame landed on the box office failure of X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Disney doesn’t like loosing money, so they have put a plan into action, and that plan is to unsurprisingly focus on established properties that they know will bring in money. It was specifically mentioned that they will be putting a focus on James Cameron’s Avatar sequels and the Planet of the Apes franchise. They’ve also previously said that new Alien and Maze Runner movies are on the way.

This is the first time that Disney CEO Bob Iger said that the Planet of the Apes franchise will live on after the previous trilogy closed out. We don’t know what these new Planet of the Apes movies will entail, but Disney will bring

In a recent interview with Yahoo, the topic of Venom 2 was brought up, to which Williams responded with “I’m in.”

‘The Art of Racing in the Rain’ Set to Become Another Flop in Fox’s Rough Box Office Year

  • The Wrap
Despite driving the lion’s share of overall 2019 box office revenue, Disney saw a big stock drop and faced questions over what it’s going to do with its newest acquisition, 20th Century Fox, after it reported a $170 million loss in its latest earnings call.

And as the assimilated studio’s “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” prepares to enter theaters, the film’s box office outlook shows that Fox will continue to remain in the red for Disney at least for the next few months.

With lukewarm reviews and poor audience tracking, “The Art of Racing in the Rain” is projected for an opening of less than $10 million this weekend, making it the third out of six films released by Fox this year to open below that mark. And overall, Fox’s 2019 domestic gross to date — $259 million — is down 65% compared to this point in 2018.

Disney is planning to make more Planet of the Apes movies according to a recent report.

Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox has certainly increased its portfolio of high profile movie franchises. One of these is Planet of the Apes and now we know that Disney has every intention of continuing the series.

New Planet of the Apes Movies Planned at Disney, Will Be a Continuation of the Saga

The Planet of the Apes franchise isn't done yet, as it's been revealed that the series will continue under Disney's roof. Disney completed its $71.3 billion merger with Fox back in March, which brought with it the entirety of the movie studio 20th Century Fox. As such, Disney inherited a whole bunch of franchises and the fates of many of those franchises have remained up in the air for months. Details on this one are still a bit fuzzy, but we haven't seen the last of the Apes on screen just yet.

It had previously been suggested at CinemaCon that Planet of the Apes was one of the franchises Disney intended to keep up with following the merger. However, a lot has changed since then. The majority of the movies that were produced by Fox, which are now being released by Disney, have failed to perform at the box office.

Disney Is Developing A New ‘Planet Of The Apes’ Sequel To Continue The Story Of The Recent Trilogy

Despite the final film in the trilogy underperforming at the box office compared to its predecessor, Fox’s recent ‘Planet of the Apes’ franchise reboot has been a huge critical success, thanks, in large part, to filmmaker Matt Reeves. And in a recent report from Variety, despite Fox having a fairly shoddy box office track record in 2019, Disney still thinks it’s a good idea to move forward with a new sequel to the ‘Apes’ franchise.

Disney Reportedly Prioritizing New Avatar And Planet Of The Apes Movies

Now that Disney officially owns pretty much every major movie franchise under the sun, many are wondering where exactly the studio’s future is headed. Though they may have suffered a $170 million operating loss after purchasing Fox earlier this year, it looks like Mickey and co. are going to lean into their recent science fiction acquisitions to pick them back up.

In an announcement made earlier this week, CEO Bob Iger shed some light on the House of Mouse’s future plans by doubling down on established properties like Avatar and Planet of the Apes, noting that they’re prioritizing each franchise.

Of course, a proper Avatar sequel has been in the works for over a decade, but an information leak late last year revealed that James Cameron has actually been working on at least four additional series entries. Despite the fact that the public hasn’t seen any footage

Disney Dumps Fox Development Slate After Dark Phoenix Leads to Huge 3Q Losses

  • MovieWeb
Dark Phoenix directly led to Disney's massive third quarter profit loss. The final X-Men installment under the Fox umbrella was pretty much doomed from the start, but it still ended up performing under expectations, which has a lot to do with its hefty $200 million production cost (not including promotion). As of this writing, Dark Phoenix is at $252.3 million globally with the digital and Blu-ray release on the way in September. With such a large production cost, it was always going to be hard to make a profit. In response, Disney will now be "refocusing" their attention on its Fox properties.

Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that Dark Phoenix was mainly to blame for their third quarter loss of up to $170 million in operating costs during the company's quarterly call with investors. The studio has already been going through and closing parts of Fox's movie division and it looks like that will continue,
