Quentin Tarantino Star Trek Movie In Development, May Direct

https://screenrant.com/quentin-tarantino-star-trek-film-direct/

Quentin Tarantino is developing a new Star Trek movie for Paramount alongside J.J. Abrams, and may wind up directing it. Abrams is responsible for the resurgence of Star Trek in film over the last decade after relaunching the franchise back in 2009. With an entirely new cast headlined by Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, and Zachary Quinto, the reboot fared well during its first two outings. Unfortunately, Star Trek Beyond did not meet expectations last year at the box office despite critical praise, and the once-considered fourth film has been lost in space ever since.

The Star Trek name is too big of an IP to keep sitting dormant – even though it is still living on through Star Trek Discovery – from theaters. It is no surprise Paramount is looking for another way to bring the franchise back, but it may come from one of cinema’s most talented minds.

Deadline is reporting Quentin Tarantino recently pitched an idea for a new Star Trek film to Abrams and Paramount and it was very well received. Paramount is looking to assemble a writer’s room to flesh out Tarantino’s idea at the moment, and if all things go according to plan, Abrams will stick around as a producer. Depending on the rest of the development process and his schedule, it is also possible that Tarantino could direct the film.

HISTORY TV Series Knightfall: What you need to know and our reaction to the show.

  • The Knights Templar were a powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages that existed for nearly two centuries following the official endorsement of the Roman Catholic Church in 1129. Templar knights were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades, while non-combatant members managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom. Support for the order faded following the loss of the Holy Land, and King Phillip IV of France – thought to be deeply indebted to the Knights – used this as an opportunity to disband the order. The swift and vicious disappearance of the Knights Templar created an allure of mystery that gave rise to the legends that keep their story alive today.
  • History channel is home to shows like Vikings and numerous documentaries about the Knights Templar so it fits right in with their brand
  • MY personal favorites right now are Ancient Aliens and Oak Island. Oak Island is possibly connected directly to the Templar legend. My wife and I are OBSESSED with this show
  • Action-Packed History—Blending fictional characters with complex storylines rooted in fact, this is the real, bloody, history of the mysterious Knights Templar – humanity’s original Jedi Knights.
  • Quest for the Holy Grail—The driving force behind Landry’s journey in S1 is his quest to recover the Holy Grail, believed to possess mystical powers. Everyone wants this power for their own benefit.
    • Blending new characters with real people and places, Knightfall tells the story of the beginning of the end of the Knights Templar. Opening at Siege of Acre in 1291, the show follows Landry, a warrior monk of the Crusades who has pledged his life to the order and the protection of Christian pilgrims, and his fellow knights, Tancrede and Gawain as they face the loss of the Holy Land and the Holy Grail. Landry’s faith in God and himself is tested as he becomes the leader of the Knights Templar and embarks on the quest to recover the legendary Holy Grail. As the Knights begin to clash with King Philip of France and Pope Boniface VIII, relationships are tested and loyalty is questioned in this epic battle of belief, desire, betrayal and revenge.
  • Knightfall Premeire is on Wednesday, December 6 at 10pm ET on HISTORY

Knightfall Game of Thrones

The Real Quest: The Search for the next Game of Thrones

1.    One of the special characteristics of the show is the Twisted Medieval Intrigue much like Game of Thrones. And that’s the real quest isn’t it? HBO’s Game of Thrones breaks all the rules for what a successful drama should be: Medieval settings, slow narrative that builds over time, death of a major character in the first season. Yet that’s why it’s successful. Is KNIGHTFALL it’s successor? It’s what every major network is trying to achieve

2.    Game of Thrones vs Knightfall: How are they alike? How are they different/stand on its own. Can a show with no conceivable ending (the Holy Grail, to our knowledge has never been found and the Knights of the Templar fade into history) engage viewers on a weekly basis?

Knightfall Premeire is on Wednesday, December 6 at 10pm ET on HISTORY

It’s Zack Snyder vs. Joss Whedon as we break down the Justice League that MIGHT have been. Did the reshoots and rewrites by Joss Whedon save the film or would Zack Snyder’s original cut be a classic? We use Superman’s bad upper lip CGI to tell you where Whedon stepped in vs Zack Snyder plus an article on Digital Spy to piece together this pieced together superhero flick.

Justice League: Our Review Notes

1.     The pivot to humor: very evident in this film saved it. There’s no question.

2.     Bad upper lip CGi

3.     The Trump of movies; either people loved it or hated it

4.     Superman: Vibrant colors. We actually get a real Superman: full of hope,

5.     Reminded me briefly of Season six of Buffy when he went dark.

6.     No real plot if you think about it

7.     What about that closing scene?Wonder Woman Ben Affleck

SNYDER VS Whedon:

http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/justice-league/feature/a843529/justice-league-zack-snyder-cut/

The Russian family wouldn’t exist in Snyder’s version – the family are a Whedon addition and they don’t make a lot of sense. (Why that family? Where’s everyone else? Why don’t the Parademons break in and eat them? Are Parademons so weak they can’t get through a minor barricade?) But at least it leads to that funny gag involving The Flash pushing the car and Superman carrying a building, so it was worth it we guess?

The first proper meeting of the League appears to have been completely retooled by Whedon, and it’s the first sign that he completely changed the Superman narrative (pretty much every shot of Superman in this film has a wobbly lip, which means his dialogue was totally redone).

This is roughly the same as Snyder’s intended cut structurally, with significant reshoot changes. For instance, we assume we would have had Superman come back from the dead in the comic-referencing black suit we were promised on Henry Cavill’s Instagram in this scene.

Also, sources say a Cyborg premonition sequence – which would have played just before the team enacted the whole ‘bring Superman back from the dead’ plan – would have happened here.

It would have tied the plot more closely to the Knightmare sequence from BvS, suggesting that this is the evil Superman from that vision.

The subsequent fight between Superman and the League was all Snyder, but would have run longer, taken place at dusk, and would have involved more collateral damage. (Cyborg’s cut “You should probably move” line is from this scene.)

In Snyder’s version, we would have had more shots of the world reacting to the threat, as red skies cover everything. We would also have had far fewer lame quips from Batman.

There also would have been a resolution of a thread involving Aquaman’s trident, which Batman gives back to him in one of the trailers (the released film doesn’t tell us why he has it, or show us him handing it over).

Again, all the Superman stuff is Whedon’s, except for a couple of interactions between Superman and Cyborg – which presumably happen after this cut shot of Cyborg trying to deal with the Mother Box on his own (man, Cyborg was hard-done-by in the studio cut).

Also, Snyder wanted Wonder Woman to decapitate Steppenwolf, presumably because he killed so many of her people. Whedon changed it to that whole thing about the smell of fear (what is it with Joss and smells?) leading to his downfall at the hands of the Parademons, who won’t kill a terrified Russian family, but they will kill their boss (anti-climax much?).

The first post-credits sequence, in which Flash races Superman, is Whedon. The second post-credits sequence (aka the one that doesn’t look like it was shot on a VHS camcorder) is Snyder’s

Netflix’s ‘The Punisher’ Totally Reboots His Marvel Origin Story

https://www.inverse.com/article/38383-marvel-netflix-punisher-origin-reboot-mcu-comics

As Marvel’s The Punisher heads to Netflix on November 17, it’s worth observing how much Frank Castle has evolved. On the surface, TV’s Jon Bernthal looks the same as Frank Castle does in the comics: Black clothes? Check. Leather trench? Check. White skull? Ammunition belts? Check, check. But behind the scary arsenal, and inside his actual skull, there lies a different Frank Castle than we’ve known since 1974. In short, the origin story of the character is now totally different from the comics.

‘Stranger Things’ unscripted kiss ‘stressed out’ Sadie Sink

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/stranger-unscripted-kiss-stressed-sadie-sink-article-1.3613248

Sadie Sink’s first kiss came as a surprise, and not a pleasant one.

The “Stranger Things” star, who joined the cast for the second season of the hit Netflix show, said that creators Matt and Ross Duffer added her character’s kiss at the Snow Ball last minute, despite her objections.

“The kiss was not written in the script,” Sink, 15, said.

“I get there, the first day of Snow Ball, me and Noah (Schnapp) are walking in seeing the decorations and stuff. One of you, I think it was you Ross, you say, ‘Oh, Sadie, you ready for the kiss?’ I’m like, ‘What! No! That’s not in the script. That’s not happening.’ So the whole day I was like stressed out, I was like ‘oh my god, wait, am I gonna have to…’”

Ross Duffer blamed Sink’s reactions for his insistence on the kiss.

“You reacted so strongly to this. I was just joking and you were so freaked out that I was like well, I gotta make her do it now,” he said on “Beyond Stranger Things.”

McLaughlin, 16, also said the kiss left him “feeling weird.”

The forced kiss comes with renewed interest amid a widespread Hollywood scandal of sexual harassment and assault.

We’re all over the new season of Stranger Things 2 with one of the show’s stars, actor Paul Reiser! Did it live up to the hype? Was it better or worse than season 1? And what about that episode 7?

Here’s our Yay and Nay for Stranger Things 2 as we ask the question: Too much 80s? Is why we like this show nostalgia versus good storytelling?

YAY

  • For me it got interesting every time Paul Reiser and the government got involved.
  • Dustin & Lucas were the most engaging – the dynamic of them trying to impress MadMAx – felt like Turtle and Drama from Entourage.
  • Liked the Hopper /Eleven storyline especially with him losing his daughter.
  • This whole season both maintains the feel of the first while having completely nothing to do with it at the same time. More character driven. More after effects. Doesn’t make it better but it is different.
  • They mix and match characters very effectively. Steve/Dustin, Max/Lucas
  • Storylines converge nicely

Stranger Things 2 Review

NAY

  • Will and Mike look too much alike.
  • The “Gremlins” nod with Dart…that’s where we start getting into..is this too much nostalgia based stuff? Are we simply rehashing the movies we love? Temple of Doom reference too… could have been cool if it was a scarce reference, the whole season felt like a nod to other movies, right down to Paul Reiser reprising his role from Aliens.

‘Walking Dead’ Season 8 premiere draws lowest opening ratings since Season 3
Story via: http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/tv/ct-walking-dead-ratings-20171024-story.html

“The Walking Dead” Season 8 premiere, also the show’s 100th episode, posted the series’ lowest premiere ratings since its third season.

Walking Dead Season 8

According to Nielsen Live+Same Day data, the AMC series averaged a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 11.4 million total viewers on Sunday night. The Season 3 premiere, which aired in 2012, averaged a 5.8 and 10.86 million viewers by comparison. This also means that the Season 8 premiere is the third-lowest in series history, ahead of only Season 2 and Season 1.

The Season 7 premiere drew an 8.4 and 17.03 million, meaning Season 8 was down approximately 40 percent in the demo and 33 percent in total viewers season-to-season. However, it should be noted that last season’s premiere was the resolution of a major cliffhanger, while the new season was not.

Here’s a snippet of the solo record talk that wasn’t on the clip:

MD: We all know the lineup changes that the Pumpkins have endured, with you essentially carrying on the mantle. So when I heard you were releasing a solo record, I was a little surprised. But then I heard the first single and it made sense. Tell me about the vibe on this record and what went into the decision to make this a solo record.

I was working on a follow up to the last Pumpkins album, Monuments to an Elegy and about half way through the record I kind of lost my mind and thought I can’t do this anymore. I just ran out of gas on Smashing Pumpkins music. So I wrote a batch of songs that ended up being the foundation for this record. I found if i just naturally let myself go where I wanted to go, more acoustic, less future rock. That’s how i ended up working with Rick Rubin and putting it under my name.

And I’m with you on that. Sometimes I question my own sanity because you get to a point in the world where, “what’s in a name?” If i write the songs and I sing it and I call it Billy Corgan or Smashing Pumpkins or I call it The Moon and the Stars it doesn’t feel any different to me. But people really perceive it differently. And it just felt right.

And I will say this, and it’s a positive-negative, I get tired of putting out Pumpkins music and then answering the question why should we accept this as Pumpkins if it doesn’t involve “pick your band member.” That gets old too. So I’m happy to do something that doesn’t have that kind of baggage. Here’s the songs I wrote, this is me, and if you like it that’s great.

MD: The sound you’ve seemed to purposely steer away from in the 2000s psychedelic quieter, heavy static guitar. I thought Oceania had that feel to it which is why i responded to it. Are you conscious of the Pumpkins sound when writing and recording? Especially in this case?

The record doesn’t have any drums. At the risk of sounding disingenuous I think I do better when i just go to where I’m interested musically and i don’t get involved intellectually. That’s the key moment for me at this part of my life. I was making a record called Smashing Pumpkins and I just wasn’t feeling it. So rather than saying I have to do this or I should do it or if I’m going to do it it has to sound like Siamese Dream 2 or whatever this intellectual overlay you can put on an idea, I’m just going to write songs and wherever those songs go and that’s what I’ll follow.=

MD: You mentioned working with Rick Rubin on it. What was his influence and whats the normal production on a Pumpkins record that made this different?

For the past ten years I primarily prodcued mysefl though I had help. With this, when i talked to Rick about doing the record, i said I’m just going to get out the way and be an artist for a change. Tell me when to show up and I’ll do my best and that’s what I did.

ABOUT OUR GUEST: TOM HUTCHISON

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)

I am the founder, art director and publisher for Big Dog Ink and the writer/creator of Critter, Penny for Your Soul, Legend of Oz: The Wicked West, Kaiju Epic, Lights…Camera…Jungle! and Ursa Minor.

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS? (Shameless Plug Time)

Separating from Aspen Comics after three years, we are now returning to our roots and relaunching the BDI brand with Penny for Your Soul like we did 7 years ago. Our first two successful Kickstarters for Lights…Camera…Jungle! and Kaiju Epic! and the continued sales of our series back issues have shown us the world is still hungry for Big Dog Ink stories, and Penny for Your Soul is where we start our journey back. But we are also looking at some new projects beyond Penny, both as comics and as digital experiences using social media in new ways including something Im calling Shahrazad: Side Quests.

GOT A HOT TAKE? (Tell us the burning issues you’re dying to talk about)

Lets not get too negative lol I always have hot takes, but lets just say the retail side of things is a mess right now and totally over saturated with companies and product. It’s nearly impossible for all these books to find shelf space at the retail level, BDI was a Diamond Top 300 publisher multiple times in our first four years, but I think even we would be hard pressed to make that list again any time soon. So we are returning to focus directly on our customers and fans that have supported us and have waited so patiently for new product, and thats exactly what Kickstarter allows us to do.

Thursday (October 5, 2017)
Michael Rooker Spotlight: 2:30-3:30pm EST/7:30-8:30 BST (Main Stage 1-D)
Fresh from his turn as Mary Poppins/Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, as well as having spent a considerable time as the redneck you’d love to punch, Merle Dixon, on The Walking Dead, Rooker is bound to have amusing anecdotes a-plenty and a few juicy behind-the-scenes tidbits to share.
American Gods: 6-7pm EST/11pm-midnight BST (Main Stage 1-D)
There are already so many questions swirling after that American Gods season finale – and this panel will be the place where (hopefully) some of those questions get answered. Three of the cast, Ricky Whittle, Yetide Badaki, and Pablo Schrieber will be at the panel, as well as appearing across all four days of the convention.

Friday (October 6, 2017)
Pacific Rim Uprising: 12pm-1pm EST/5pm-6pm BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
Immediately after Peter Capaldi’s panel comes the first marquee panel of NYCC 2017 from Madison Square Garden. It’s sure to be a wild ride as lots of the Pacific Rim sequel has been kept under-wraps until now. Expect a clip or two and John Boyega to also grace us with his presence. Are we ok to ask about Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

Saturday (October 7, 2017
Star Trek: Discovery: 3:45-4:45pm EST/8:45-9:45pm BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
If an hour of laser-focused discussion and reveals surrounding Star Trek: Discovery sounds like your thing then Madison Square Garden is the place to be on the Saturday. Promising to be chock-full of appearances from cast, as well as executives behind the show, this is one panel not to be missed.

The Walking Dead: 7:45-8:45pm EST/12:45-1:45am BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
The Walking Dead season 8 brings Rick and the gang on the cusp of all-out war with Negan and his set of Saviours. Here’s hoping Saturday evening’s panel will shed some light on what’s to come, and just what the deal is with Old Man Rick. The cast, including Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Norman Reedus, and the brains (mmm, brains) behind the operation will converge to discuss all things Walking Dead for, probably, the event’s most interesting hour.

Sunday (October 10, 2017)
The X-Files: 1-2pm EST/6-7pm BST (Main Stage 1-D)
The truth is out there, and so is this panel discussing the upcoming second season of the X-Files revival. Mulder and Scully will both be there (let’s face it, Gillian Anderson is worth the price of admission alone) to discuss the exclusive first-look at the new ten-episode run premiering in January.
