Amazon Studios will adapt Brian K. Vaughan's comic Paper Girls into a TV series.

Earlier this year, prolific comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan struck a deal with Legendary Entertainment to adapt some of his comic IP. Now the first project from that deal has been announced.

Danny Boyle has a “wonderful idea” for another 28 Days Later sequel

Danny Boyle has been doing a lot of talking on the current press tour for his bootleg Beatles musical comedy Yesterday (read our ★★★★ review here). This time though, it isn’t about his revoked licence to kill, but the future of his 2002 non-zombie classic 28 Days Later.

Speaking to The Independent, Boyle revealed that the oft-rumoured follow-up to Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s 2007 sequel 28 Weeks Later, was being worked on by original writer and Ex Machina director Alex Garland.

The Academy-Award winning helmer said “Alex Garland and I have a wonderful idea for the third part”. Adding in his own inimitable way that it was “properly good”.

Boyle went on to say “The original film led to a bit of a resurgence in the zombie drama and it doesn’t reference any of that. It doesn’t feel stale at all. He’s concentrating on directing his own work at the moment,

Alex Garland’s ‘Wonderful Idea’ for Third ’28 Days Later’ Film Keeps Sequel Hopes Alive

Alex Garland’s ‘Wonderful Idea’ for Third ’28 Days Later’ Film Keeps Sequel Hopes Alive
Horror movie fans still wondering if a third “28 Days Later” movie will ever happen should remain hopeful, as director Danny Boyle tells The Independent that a “wonderful idea” has been cracked for the next movie. Boyle, who directed the 2002 horror movie starring Cillian Murphy, Naomi Harris, Christopher Eccleston, and Brendan Gleeson, says the third part of the “28 Days Later” trilogy has been mapped out with screenwriter Alex Garland.

“Alex Garland and I have a wonderful idea for the third part,” Boyle said. “It’s properly good. The original film led to a bit of a resurgence in the zombie drama and it doesn’t reference any of that. It doesn’t feel stale at all. [Alex is] concentrating on directing his own work at the moment, so it’s stood in abeyance really, but it’s a you-never-know.”

Garland made his screenwriting debut with “28 Days Later,” which IndieWire recently named the 14th greatest horror movie ever made.

7 Reasons Why ‘Booksmart’ May Turn Out to Be a Box-Office Hit

7 Reasons Why ‘Booksmart’ May Turn Out to Be a Box-Office Hit
Olivia Wilde’s high school comedy “Booksmart” will gross about $11 million in its first week in 2,505 theaters. That’s good enough for sixth place, which inspired a bevy of commenters to rail about what its failure reveals about the fate of review-driven, quality, small-scale original movies in today’s market.

Fact is, not every film lives or dies by initial results. Nor are the standards by which we judge “Hellboy” the same as “Booksmart.” Initial gross is important, but then there’s a movie like “Green Book.” It opened before Thanksgiving in multiple cities to mediocre results, but with enough positive response to pay off over months (along with expensive marketing) that culminated with its Best Picture win and worldwide success. Or last year’s “Book Club,” which opened wide under $15 million to nearly a 5X multiple.

“Booksmart” opened on a holiday weekend, surfing upbeat media coverage from its SXSW launch.

Movie Review – Starfish (2018)

Starfish, 2018.

Directed by A.T. White.

Starring Virginia Gardner, Christina Masterson, and Eric Beecroft.

Synopsis:

A unique, intimate and honest portrayal of a girl grieving for the loss of her best friend. That just happens to take place on the day the world ends as we know it.

The elevator pitch for Starfish is simple; combine the otherworldly nature of Stranger Things with the emotionally devastating treasure hunt of 13 Reasons Why. However comparing it with the two feels like a disservice to what A.T. White has set out to achieve here in his directorial debut. There’s so much more bubbling under the surface than simple genre mechanics. Instead what plays out is a melancholic depiction of grief which stays with the audience long after the credits. This isn’t a typical bombastic painting of the apocalypse, instead it’s a quiet reflection on an individual’s place in the world,

Disney Unveils the Other Half of its Television Universe at Upfront (Analysis)

  • Variety
Disney’s upfront presentation on Tuesday at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall amounted to the second half of the starry unveiling of its Television Universe.

The two-hour-plus showcase came on a month after the April 11 showcase of plans for the Disney Plus streaming service, which came less than a month after Disney completed its historic acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

Last month’s Disney Plus presentation was geared to investors, part of Disney’s bid to reshape the Wall Street narrative around traditional media giants as the world’s largest media company marshals its brand forces. Tuesday’s razzle-dazzle was aimed at Madison Avenue, reinforcing the importance of — and Disney’s exposure to — the domestic TV advertising market to the health of the company’s overall business.
