On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (May 20th, 2016) Dennis Tzeng, Kristian Harloff, Mark Ellis and Sinéad de Vries discuss the following:

-Jennifer Lawrence on potential return in X-Men

-New trailer released for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

-New The Purge: Election Year trailer

-Baywatch wraps production and releases official image

-Box Office Predictions

-Mail Bag

While the fate of the members from the X-Men won’t be revealed until X-Men: Apocalypse hits theatres on May 27th, one particular mutant’s return to another X-Men movie is the subject of the most speculation from the fans, namely Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique. The actress’ three-picture deal expires with X-Men: Apocalypse (along with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult), and Lawrence is noticeably vague when speaking about a potential return. But in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, that all changed.

The latest trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is giving fans a look at the final showdown between the Turtles and one of their most anticipated new villains, Krang. The trailer singles the arrival of the movie, which is now just two short weeks away. The movie sees Shredder escaping custody and joining forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world.

Universal Pictures has released the newest trailer for The Purge: Election Year, the third film in the franchise that focuses on Elizabeth Mitchell playing a senator running for President on the platform of bringing an end to the Purge. When the annual Purge falls in the middle of her presidential bid, she becomes the target of government-sanctioned assassination attempts from those who want to keep the American tradition alive.

Yesterday marked exactly one year until Baywatch lands in theaters on May 19, 2017 with the production also announcing the wrap of production. Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson took to his social media announcing the completion of principle photography with Paramount also releasing the first official cast photo.

After kicking off its release internationally on April 27th, Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War has now surpassed Disney’s Zootopia to become the highest grossing film of 2016 worldwide, with a total of $981.9 million and climbing. The sequel has snagged an international box office of $671.4 million, with $164.2 million of that from China alone. Domestically, Civil War has amassed a total of $310.5 million in just over two weeks in release, with more to come.

Sony has released the latest poster and green band trailer for Sausage Party, the animated comedy that focuses on a group of supermarket food that learn the terrible truth about the fate they’ll be subjected to upon purchase: being taken home and eaten. Sausage Party is the first R-rated CG animated movie that features the all star cast of voices.

With its classic movie monster’s universe already in motion, Universal is now ready to develop new movies based on the creator of one of its most popular franchises. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson together with Zodiac and Amazing Spider-Man 2 writer James Vanderbilt have closed a deal with Universal to produce a collective universe of films based on the bestselling novels of Robert Ludlum, who is best known for creating the Jason Bourne series that the studio has already turned into a massive movie franchise. The first feature being developed in the new Ludlum adventure “The Janson Directive” with The Rock starring.

Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull star Shia LaBeouf will portray tennis legend John McEnroe in the upcoming biopic, Borg/McEnroe. The movie will tell the story of the intense rivalry between McEnroe and his Swedish opponent, Bjorn Borg, who faced off 14 times in the 1970s and ’80s, splitting the wins with 7 each. The deal was announced at the Cannes Film Festival, where LaBeouf is supporting his American Honey, directed by Andrea Arnold.

Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will portray the Gunslinger and the Man in Black respectively in director Nikolaj Arcel’s The Dark Tower, which recently began principle photography. Fans have been long waiting for this adaptation which will be based primarily on the first novel, The Gunslinger, in which the title hero and the mysterious the Man in Black, play a cat-and-mouse game as they head to the mystical tower at the center of Mid-World, the fantastical world in which they live. During an interview on the EW podcast Stephen King spoke about the adaptation of the book promising the film will begin as the book does saying,

Variety reports that Brasil director Terry Gilliam has set a shooting date in October for his long in development, long delayed Don Quixote movie. The new film will star Adam Driver as a young filmmaker who returns to an isolated village where he once shot a disastrous adaptation of Don Quixote, only to find the aftermath of the production still plaguing him. Michael Palin will also star as an older member of the village community who believes himself to be Don Quixote, with Olga Kurylenko in a mysterious role, playing the wife of the boss to Driver’s character. .

Fans who stuck around for the end credits scene of Deadpool were treated to a clever parody of an 80’s John Hughes’ movie, Instead of it being just a gag without a payoff, this credits scene promised the big screen introduction of a Marvel Comics character for Deadpool 2, namely Cable. Creator of Deadpool himself Rob Liefeld recently spoke to CinemaBlend revealing that the time traveler with the bionic arm was discussed as appearing in Deadpool’s origin story. But the Merc with a Mouth’s creator advised against it.

The first trailer for Personal Shopper has landed online just following the film’s world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Kristen Stewart leads the thriller in a reunion with her Clouds of Sils Maria director Olivier Assayas. In Personal Shopper, Stewart plays an American celebrity fashion assistant and personal shopper who attempts to communicate with the ghost of her recently deceased twin brother.

Collider Heroes - Road To X-Men Apocalypse

Welcome to the road to X-Men: Apocalypse, a Collider Heroes Special hosted by Jon Schnepp; with our special panel Amy Dallen and Robert Meyer Burnett.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens on May 27th so we thought we’d go through the feature films that have brought us to this point. Let’s get into the way-back machine and exit in the year 2000. July 14th brought us the very first film simply titled X-men.

X2: X-Men United came out May 2, 2003, and we had a bigger world to play in, after the success of the first film. Bryan Singer returned with a sure hand in directing this second film, expanding the storylines of Wolverine and his brutal origin by the hands of Stryker.

May 26, 2006 saw the release of X-Men The Last Stand, this one without Bryan Singer, who left to go direct Superman Returns. This film is directed by Brett Rattner, with a script by Simon Kinberg and Zak Penn. This third installment had a cure as the central story, with a division and battle once more between Professor x and Magneto, as they fight to stop this cure from wiping them out.

May 1st, 2009 saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the first solo film for Hugh Jackman as this character, featuring the century spanning life of Logan and his brother Sabretooth aka Victor Creed played by Liev Schriber. We see Logan working with Team X, with Wade Wilson, in his early career with Stryker, and then he leaves, and has his own life until Victor shows up to ruin it all. We then got lots of strange inconsistent scenes with Gambit, Blob, and a Deadpool with his mouth sewn shut. WTF?

May 25th, 2011 was the release date of X-Men: First Class. This reboot/prequel to the first three X-Men films really helped reestablish the X-Men brand, by throwing them back into the sixties, and recasting the main duo of Prof X and Magneto with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, with Mystique played by Jennifer Lawrence. 

The Wolverine came out on July 26th, 2013, and followed Logan to Japan as he tried to escape from his tormented nightmares involving the ghost of Jean Grey. Wolverine accepts the offer from a man he saved during WW2, and now can give Logan what he desires, death by the destruction of his healing gene. Things don’t go as planed and ends up with Wolverine not fighting a group of Ninjas, and eventually battling the Silver Samurai.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opened May 23rd, 2014 was the return to greatness, with Bryan Singer making an epic that combined his original cast with the new First Class cast. The main cast travels back and forth from the horrible future to the 1970s in an effort to save all of mutantkind. This movie had it all, both sets of X-Men, time travel and the ability to fix giant mistakes that happened in the previous movies, as well as getting the Setinels properly in the X-universe.

Collider Movie Talk - Batman V Superman Fallout Leads To DC Shakeup, 2nd Ghostbusters Trailer

On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (May 18th, 2016) Kristian Harloff, Jon Schnepp, Mark Ellis discuss the following:

-Jon Berg and Geoff Johns appointed head of DC Films after Batman v Superman fallout

-New Ghostbusters trailer released

-Ryan Coogler says Black Panther is most personal movie to date

-Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow reteaming on Powerhouse

-Tetris movie in development

-Shane Black talks Predator timeline and hints at Arnold’s appearance

-AMC Rewind

-Mail Bag

According to a report from THR, DC and Warner Bros are shaking things up for their film division, appointing Jon Berg and Geoff Johns to co-run DC Films in an attempt to course-correct their comic book universe and create a dedicated division for the films. The move is part of a broader refinement of executive roles at Warners, which has suffered since its disappointing debut of Batman v Superman. Instead of a range of movies to oversee, executives will be charged with managing “genre streams" while reporting to Warner Bros.

Sony Pictures has released the newest Ghostbusters trailer for director Paul Feig’s upcoming reboot. The redo stars Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones as a team of women who band together in order to fend off paranormal activity in New York City, becoming the city’s only hope when a slew of ghosts descend upon the Big Apple.

Marvel’s Black Panther movie is quickly becoming one of the most talked about adaptations to date, what with Chadwick Boseman’s scene stealing performance in Captain America: Civil War, along with casting confirmations that Michael B Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o will be joining the cast. Now, director Ryan Coogler is adding to the hype, telling Fast Company in an interview that Black Panther will be his most personal film to date.

BUY OR SELL

THR is reporting that Steven Spielberg is reteaming with Jurassic World filmmaker Colin Trevorrow for Powerhouse, a family action movie that will also have Simon Kinberg on as a producer. Indie filmmaker Emily Carmichael will write and direct the project for Amblin Entertainment with plot details being kept under wraps. Director Carmichael snagged the gig after her short film The Hunter and the Swan Discuss Their Meeting won the grand jury prize at the 2012 Science Fiction Fantasy Short Film Festival.

According to a report from Deadline, a Tetris movie is in the works with the project being planned as an $80 million China-U.S. co-production under Threshold Global Studios. The plan is to film in China and other locations in 2017 with Chinese cast members featured in the ensemble. Deadline also reports that the movie is billed as a sci-fi thriller with the first film seen as part of a trilogy.

Speaking exclusively to Crave Online about his latest movie The Nice Guys, director Shane Black fielded questions about his latest with talk turning, naturally, to his next big-budget movie The Predator. Answering questions about the movie, Shane Black surprisingly went into a lot of detail on what we can expect from the next movie.

Thought details are under wraps, THR mentions names such as Batgirl and Birds of Prey as possible additions to the movie. 
 
Deadline is reporting that Martin Scorsese’s mob picture The Irishman has landed at STX Entertainment in a huge deal for international rights that represents a record for the Cannes Film Festival. Paramount will retain domestic rights on the movie, which reunites Scorsese with Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel, as well as adding Al Pacino with Scorsese for the first time in their storied careers.

Paramount Pictures took to their official Transformers Instagram account yesterday in order to announce the official title for the upcoming fifth entry in the series: Transformers: The Last Knight. The Last Knight cast is confirmed to include Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as new roles for Isabela Moner as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Michael Bay will return as director with a script written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Black Hawk Down’s Ken Nolan.

Although Disney’s The Jungle Book continues to break all sorts of records at the box office, recently crossing the 800 million world-wide total, Warners Bros.’ own Jungle Book Origins movie directed by Andy Serkis is still very much happening. Serkis recently spoke to Vulture about the differences between his Jungle Book movie and Disney’s with Serkis saying his version is darker than the recent movie.
 
During an interview with Fandango to promote X-Men Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer revealed he actually pitched the idea of a female Wolverine movie based off of Wolverine’s clone AKA Laura Kinney - AKA X-23. It was suggested along with his idea for an X-Force movie. Singer wanted to keep the “essence” of Wolverine alive knowing that Jackman would be departing the part after 9 total appearances.

Collider TV Talk - ABC Cancels Agent Carter, Castle, and The Muppets
On this episode of Collider TV Talk (May 16th, 2016) Josh Macuga, David Griffin, Sinéad de Vries, Sasha Perl-Raver and Kara Warner discuss the following:
 
-ABC cancels Agent Carter, Castle, Nashville and The Muppet Show
 
-CBS green-lights MacGuyver and Training Day
 
-Joel Kinnaman to star in Netflix series Altered Carbon
 
-Supergirl moves to The CW
 
-Superhero rundown
 
-Highlights and lowlights
 
-Streaming spotlight: Narcos
 
-Josh's Pick: The Wonder Years
 
Last week ABC went all French Revolution and put the guillotine to Agent Carter, Castle, Nashville AND The Muppets Show. After a disappointing season 2 of Agent Carter, it wasn’t a shock that we wouldn’t see Hayley Atwell reprise her role, but 8 year vet Castle fell victim to contracts and loss of a main cast member; the Muppets got zero traction and even less marketing, with Nashville getting the guitar, I mean axe, at the Disney owned studio shocking a lot of fans. 
 
In the wake of all the cancellations last week, CBS, the most watched network, pulled the plug on the last CSI franchise, CSI: Cyber, but greenlit a reboot of MacGuyver and a series spinoff of the Antoine Fuqua movie Training Day. MacGuyver will star Lucas Till of X-Men fame as the man with the ability to make bombs out of household items which, thankfully, inspired the likes of MacGruber. Training Day on the other hand stars Bill Paxton playing the Denzel Washington type role in the series with newcomer Justin Cornwell taking on the Ethan Hawke, young cop, role. 
 
As reported by Variety, Joel Kinnaman has signed on to star in the Netflix series, Altered Carbon. The series is based on the Richard K. Morgan novel that takes place in the 25th century, where the human mind has been digitized and souls are transferable. Kinnaman will play Takeshi Kovacs, a former interstellar warrior who was put into “storage” and later downloaded into the future. Game of Thrones’ Miguel Sapochnik, who directed Season 5’s critically acclaimed episode Hardhome, will tackle the first episode with Laeta Kalogridis, who wrote Terminator Genisys and Shutter Island, writing the series and serving as showrunner. 
 
SUPERHERO RUNDOWN
 
We talked last week on TV Talk about the possibility of Supergirl heading from CBS to The CW and last week it was made official. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Supergirl will make her way to The CW and move production to Vancouver where Greg Berlanti’s Arrow and The Flash call home. 
 
Krysten Ritter, who plays Marvel’s Jessica Jones, sat down with Digital Spy last week letting us in on some of the goings on in Marvel’s Netflix TV Universe. The superhero with a love of cheap whiskey and sexual soirees said Jessica Jones season 2 would shoot immediately after The Defenders and also that she can’t say if she’s shot anything for Luke Cage.  
 
Not only did ABC go ahead and cancel everything last week including Christmas, they also crushed fans of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when they didn’t pick up Marvel’s Most Wanted, the much anticipated spin-off of the adventures of Bobbi and Lance played by Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood. The two left the series during a tearful bar scene and fans have been clamoring for their return, but apparently ABC didn’t hear their pleas. 
 
And finally in some happy news, Powerless, a DC Comics comedy about regular folks dealing with the damage left behind by superheroes is a go at NBC. The cast includes, Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk and Vanessa Hudgens. Hudgens will play Emily, an insurance adjuster left to clean up the mess left behind by the superheros and the villains who love to try and kill them and in the process destroy cities.

-Jennifer Lawrence to join Ocean’s 11 spin-off
 
-New trailer and poster released for The BFG

It’s Monday which means its time for the weekend box office report brought to you by our friends at AMC theatres. The box office juggernaut that is Disney continues its dominating hold on the box office with Captain America: Civil War taking the No 1 spot with $72.6 million dollars, snagging the record of 6th highest grossing super-hero movie of all time. Cap’s latest record also helped Marvel cross 10 billion dollars worldwide for their Marvel Cinematic Universe, total. The Jungle Book took the No 2 spot with $17.8 million dollars, crossing $800 million to bringing the worldwide total to $828.1 million. Money Monster pulled in $15 million for the No 3 spot with The Darkness taking in $5.2 million dollars for the No 4 spot. And at No 5, Mother’s Day with $3.2 million dollars. 
 
The Black Panther movie got a massive boost of hype when Chadwick Boseman’s turn as the Wakanda Warrior turned out to be one of the best parts of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. Marvel then continued to build the anticipation when Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o entered talks to join the cast. Now, things have hit a fever pitch of excitement for the fans with THR reporting that director Ryan Coogler will officially reteam again with his Creed and Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan. Jordan has joined the cast of Black Panther in an unknown role, speculated to be the movie’s villain. 
 
Deadline is reporting that Gareth Edwards has exited Godzilla 2 in a split reported to be amicable for both Edwards and Warner Bros Pictures. Edwards, who helmed the first film in the series in 2014, promptly signed on to direct Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which will release later this December. Edwards has his own projects in various forms of development he wants to pursue, which Deadline reports as smaller in scale than the back-to-back tentpole-size pictures he directed with Godzilla and then Star Wars. Max Borenstein wrote the current version of Godzilla 2, which was dated last week for a release on March 22, 2019. 
 
BUY OR SELL
 
In a report from the Tracking Board, Jennifer Lawrence has been tapped by her Hunger Games director Gary Ross to join Sandra Bullock in the Ocean’s 11 reboot as the right hand woman to Bullock’s ring leader. The revival was announced back in October, with news that Bullock was leading a predominantly female cast. The project was reportedly initiated by Clooney, Soderbergh and late producer Jerry Weintraub with Olivia Milch set to pen the screenplay.
 
On the heels of the Cannes premiere of Steven Spielberg’s The BFG, Disney
has released a new trailer and poster to capitalize on the buzz coming out of the prestigious film festival. The movie directed by Spielberg, and written by his ET screenwriter Melissa Mathison, has the general consensus saying that The BFG is a big, beautiful picture with Spielberg’s signature heart. 
 
Variety is reporting that Goosebumps director Rob Letterman is on board to direct a reboot of Dungeons and Dragons for Warner Brothers studios. Sources at Variety say that a recent presentation to execs from Letterman helped secure him the job. The film will mark the second go-round for the project following the 2001 version which underwhelmed at the box office. The film has been in development for some time now.
 
Though he’s been rumored for some time now as joining Hugh Jackman in his last go around as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart’s Professor X had yet to be confirmed as officially joining the project. But thanks to an interview with producer Hutch Parker, Collider’s own Steve “Frosty” Weintraub was able to finally confirm that Stewart will be joining the ensemble, rumored to be a story loosely based on the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics.

Joe Pytka, the director of the 1996 film Space Jam, unleashed some strong words in opposition to the newly announced sequel for his original movie. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Pytka thinks Warner Bros should stop with the sequel, saying: Don’t do it. It’s doomed.

Derek Connolly, the co-writer of Jurassic World, has been hired to work on Pacific Rim 2, the sequel to Legendary’s Jaegars vs. monsters pic directed by Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro remains involved with the project as one of the producers but is not directing the sequel; that role went to Steven DeKnight, the showrunner of season 1 of Netflix’s Daredevil. The most recent drafts of the script have been worked on by del Toro, Zak Penn and Jon Spaihts. While plot details are being kept under wraps, THR’s report mentions that it is unclear if Connolly is doing a page-one rewrite or simply a polish.
