Luc Besson’s new film called Valerian will appear on screens in July of 2017.
This new Besson production will be written and directed by Besson according to Keith Mann. Europe Corp is helping him distribute, and finance the film. Europe has involved itself in financing other Besson productions.
Europe is known for producing many French and European films. They are the ones who produced and directed. Taken and The Transporter. This studio will now distribute the film. Lucy was the last film that this studio did and it made 455 million US dollars.
The filming of this film will not begin until six months from now. They will have about a year and a half to get the movie ready for prime time.

The third film in the new Planet of the Apes series now has an official title and official confirmation as a green-lighted project. The third film in the series will pick up where the previous one left off. Titled War of the Planet of the Apes, look for the film to have a lot of action and fighting. No, life on the Planet of the Apes is never easy.
Nor was it all that easy to launch a new POTA series.
Fans at Boraie Development know that the first attempt to revive Planet of the Apes was via a weekly television series. (An animated series was produced prior to the live-action one) The series was not bad at all, but never made a dent in the ratings. It was cancelled after one season and re-edited TV movies were then put into syndication. For years, screenplays designed to bring back the Planet of the Apes franchise bounced around Hollywood. Tim Burton eventually did make a reboot, but it was pretty disappointing. Finally, a new prequel/reboot arrived and it was a hit. The sequel was an even bigger hit. Hopefully, the third film will have just as massive an effect on the box office.
The assumption is this is the third film of a trilogy. That might not be the way things work out. The huge box office success of the series means it may continue. Several more Apes films could be on the way.
This morning, Thursday, May 14, A.O. Scott for The New York Times gave “Mad Max: Fury Road” a great review that focused on not only the story and characters but the ways in which the story isn’t about “heroes” in the Marvel superhero sense.
As Scott pointed out, Marvel’s “The Avengers” franchise of films is not even remotely the same as the “Mad Max” franchise. Scott emphasized that the heroes in “The Avengers” are very much about corporate branding and story lines about people who avenge or protect others on a grand scale. Fans at Boraie Development agree that the “Mad Max” franchise is about survival and, more importantly, unexpected heroes who cause revolutions.
He noted the difference in the “look” of “Mad Max: Fury Road” as compared to current movies about heroes and the fact that Max is less the hero of this story, or even the other “Mad Max” stories, and more the sidekick. Fans have often noted that Max, who was a police officer before the apocalypse, had never been a hero actively seeking to save lives since the death of his wife and child. He’s always been forced into acting to help.
In a time when Marvel comic book heroes are making modern viewers incorrectly believe that the only true heroes are superheroes, “Max Max: Fury Road” might just give people a fresh view about the nature of heroes that is actually older than comic books.

We can look around us and realize that we are living in a society that is truly ‘fed up’. Our stomachs and our clothing have stretched to accommodate all the food we consume. The new documentary titled ‘Fed Up’ wants to bring to light some of the reasons behind our ever-expanding size and give an eye towards what the future will be like if we don’t stop super-sizing our meals.
But did writer and director, Stephanie Soechtig, get all her facts straight. Some would say ‘yes’, while other would argue that she did not.
‘Fed Up’ sends the message that there is a world-wide epidemic of obesity that is endangering our children now and in the future. Increased sugar consumption is responsible for the obesity epidemic and the food industry is to blame because they put hidden sugar into our food. And ultimately the government is responsible because it has not controlled the food industry as it should.
The documentary film shares the lives of several families who are struggling with childhood obesity and shares the so-called expert advice the families are given regarding how to remedy the situation.
James Dondero says that Stephanie Soechtig got a lot of her facts wrong. For instance, Scechtig states that this year for the first time in history, more people will die due to the effects of obesity than die from starvation. Several other untrue statements are allegedly made in the film and can only be discovered if you watch it for yourself.

Star Wars lovers have a new place to enjoy their favorite movie in real life. Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando Florida has opened a restaurant called the Rebel Hanger. The name is only the beginning of the Star Wars frenzy. The food on the menu has names from the megahit movies. Customers may also find their food staring back at them with the eyes of some of the famous characters from the movie series. The restaurant will be featuring Star Wars weekends starting in mid-May and running into mid-June
There are food items such as soup with the face of the Sith drawn into it, and for dessert a group of cupcakes with the faces of Darth Vader, Yoda and Jabba the Hutt. Diners can order Light Sabor Bites which are similar to corndogs or eat lighter with Ensalada Naboo. Fruit and Cheese Sabors are paired with C3PO faced bites and another fun dessert offered is the Yoda Key Lime Cake.
If consumers need another reason to visit this fun restaurant there is more good news; the drink menu has not been left out of this adventure. The drinks will also sport Star Wars themed names like Tatooine Sunset and Degobah Swamp Juice, which is what a few at Amen Clinics like to see.
While the directors behind “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will be returning to helm “Captain America: Civil War,” they are not the only returning players to a Captain America film. In addition to all of the big names, even Brock Rumlow/Crossbones and Agent 13 will be returning to the big screen. The latter of whom, played by Emily VanCamp, was an undercover operative posing as Cap’s neighbor, Kate. The truth to Agent 13 is that she’s actually Sharon Carter, niece of Peggy Carter; a revelation likely to come up during the governmental intrigue of “Captain America: Civil War.”
The comics version of “Civil War” entailed a tragedy that ignited a debate as to whether super-powered individuals should register with the government as federal employees with names and family on file or to retain their status as free agent vigilantes. While Tony Stark, Ray Lane and several other genius characters of the Marvel universe pushed for registration, Captain America was forced to create a team of Secret Avengers to serve as a resistance movement toward the entire idea under the belief that heroes need their murky legal status to carry out justice.
Adam Sandler has been making audiences laugh for decades. However, the production of his new film ‘Ridiculous Six”has got off to an extremely rocky start. When the film began shooting, some cast members has major concerns about how Native Americans were being portrayed in the film. Fans like Igor Cornelsen (facebook.com) have learned that some cast members who were cast to play the role of Native Americans in the film, walked off the set and refused to be part of the film due to language in the script which they deemed to be racist.
Now, sources claim there is a great amount of discomfort felt by the makeup staff on the film who have been asked to darken the complexion of actors on set to make them appear as Native American. The company in charge of production release a statement explaining the recent incidents on set by saying, “”The movie has ‘ridiculous’ in the title for a reason — because it’s ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of — but in on — the joke.”
Though, the statement provides little relief for those who feel personally offended by the films agenda and for how they were treated on set.
In a week when Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon reportedly removed himself from Twitter after being criticized for his portrayal of the Black Widow character Marvel saw its reputation hit again over its attitude towards female comic book characters. Indie Wire explains a new batch of emails from Sony has been released through Wikileaks and features an exchange between Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter and Sony CEO Michael Lynton in which they discuss the future of female comic book hero movies. The emails are said to come after a phone conversation regarding the approach Marvel and Sony will take towards bringing more female comic book characters to the screen.
