Conjuring Complexity

Harry Potter 6

J.K. Rowling will pen her first screen-play for a Harry Potter spin-off film series based on a fictional piece of literature entitled¬†Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. ¬†The series’ plot will revolve around one of Rowling’s favorite characters,¬†Newt Scamander.

The Harry Potter Franchise lasted more than a decade and became the highest-grossing film series of all time, pulling in $7.7 billion internationally.

Quote1Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,‚ÄĚ said Rowling. ‚ÄúThe laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt‚Äôs story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry‚Äôs gets underway.Quote2¬†— ¬†J.K. Rowling

And since Warner Bros. hired Zack Snyder to direct the segway film into their superhero ensemble team-up, they’re gonna need all the extra revenue they can get their hands on.

Ben Affleck will portray the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder’s Superman vs. Batman. ¬†Though Affleck was Oscar snubbed this year as a director, the film he directed won Best Picture.

And let’s be honest, when it comes to directing films, Snyder is going to need all of the help he can get.

54.6% mean rottentomatoes score

Whereas Ben’s is 94.6%,¬†as a director.

‚ÄúWe knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics‚Äô most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and¬†Ben Affleck¬†certainly fits that bill, and then some” said¬†Greg Silverman, President of¬†Creative Development¬†and Worldwide Production atWarner Bros. earlier today. “His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúBen provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry‚Äôs Superman,” added director Snyder. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can‚Äôt wait to work with him.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúWe are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.‚Äô remarkable legacy with the character of Batman,” continued¬†Worldwide¬†Marketing¬†and International Distribution President¬†Sue Kroll.¬†He is a tremendously gifted actor who will make this role his own in this already much-anticipated pairing of these two beloved heroes.”

Warner Bros. has a longstanding relationship with Affleck. His most recent hit for the studio was 2012’s Argo, which won Best Picture at this year’s¬†Academy¬†Awards. Affleck’s next directorial effort, Live By Night, will also be produced by Warner.

The film will be penned by Snyder and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer, and is currently slated to open worldwide on July 17, 2015. The sequel will reunite Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams and Diane Lane.

Man of Steel has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date.

UPDATE:

Superman Vs. Batman will film in Detroit, Michigan.

Guardians 3

Marvel’s panel at SDCC¬†primarily showcased an ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy cast including: Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, Chris Pratt and Djimon Hounsou. ¬†The Avenger’s 2 will be titled¬†Avengers: Age of Ultron,¬†which let’s be totally honest is multitudes better than Zack Snyder managed to do:

Albert Einstein himself¬†plans on bringing depth and meaning to his¬†Batman/Superman team up-film,¬†so he titled the film: ¬†Superman vs. Batman. ¬†The guy’s clearly a genius. ¬†Why¬†Warner Bros.¬†keeps hiring a man who’s “best film” garnered a¬†56%¬†on¬†rottentomatoes, is baffling. ¬†As a matter of fact, the guy’s¬†LAST THREE FILMS¬†averaged a blunderous¬†43%¬†on the oft-referenced¬†meta-critic-website. ¬†Now, I’m no rocket scientist. ¬†To be certain. ¬†But words like¬†fail, and¬†baddie; spring to mind.

UPDATE: Actors Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling are reportedly in front-running for a rebooted Caped Crusader.

UPDATE:

Vin Diesel will voice Groot.

Bradley Cooper may be Rocket Raccoon.

Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug¬†dropped it’s first trailer this week:

And looks substantially more plot-developmental than perhaps the first one was:

#Trololol. ¬†Literally. ¬†Kinda. ¬†@The_hobbit_blog¬†will keep you updated on all things The Hobbit. ¬†Peter Jackson and crew will more or less be looking for some¬†cinematic redemption after the The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey garnered a lackluster 65% on rottentomatoes. ¬†Which funnily enough is¬†more than we can say for the likes of¬†Zack Snyder’s¬†“Best film to date(56%)”.Desolation of Smaug 2-1

Righetous Nobility 3

Man of¬†Steel might literally “set the tone” for a linear cinematic¬†DC Universe, as Empire Magazine reports that Warner Bros.¬†will want¬†Zack Snyder to direct Justice League: given¬†Man of Steel’s¬†success at the box office.

Which quite frankly makes me question if  WB executives even took the time to SEE the film they made with Snyder less than two years ago, entitled: you guessed it, Sucker Punch (23%).  Trololol.

In related superhero arms race”¬†news,¬†Thor: The Dark World¬†released a pretty bossy¬†one-sheet this week along with it’s first trailer:

Sentient Fortitude 3

My trolling of Zack Snyder evidently will be to no avail as he seems to have turned out a solid film with executive producer Christopher Nolan at his back:

In all fairness though he’s quite good at making trailers, and less good at making movies. ¬†Anywho, it seems that viral marketing campaigns are what all the “cool kids” are doing nowadays and apparently The Big Blue Boyscout¬†is no different:
