Joe Russo Closes Deal To Script ‘Extraction 2,’ New Installment Of Netflix Smash Chris Hemsworth Pic
Exclusive: As the Chris Hemsworth action film Extraction continues on pace to become Netflix’s most watched feature film ever, the film’s writer, Joe Russo, has closed a deal to write another installment of the high action film. Agbo, the company run by Russo and his brother Anthony, are putting the pieces together and are optimistic that Sam Hargrave returns as director, and that Chris Hemsworth will reprise as mercenary Tyler Rake, though those deals won’t be made by Netflix until the script is ready.

“The deal is closed for me to write Extraction 2, and we are in the formative stages of what the story can be,” Russo told Deadline. “We’re not committing yet to whether that story goes forward, or backward in time. We left a big loose ending that leaves question marks for the audience.”

‘The Climbers’ Film Review: Chinese Mountaineers Tackle Everest in Old-School Adventure

‘The Climbers’ Film Review: Chinese Mountaineers Tackle Everest in Old-School Adventure
The Chinese mountain-climbing adventure “The Climbers” works best when it’s an old-fashioned macho melodrama about the hardships faced by the first mountaineering team to document their summit of Mount Everest’s treacherous North-side in 1975.

In these scenes, writer-director Daniel Lee (“Black Mask”) and his colleagues deliver a less flamboyant but equally nationalistic mountain-climbing answer to “Top Gun,” one that’s mostly focused on the camaraderie and heartbreak that the (predominantly male) National Mountaineering Team faces whenever their stubborn but resourceful leaders Wuzhou Fang and Qu Songlin (Zhang Yi) press on in the face of avalanches, snow drifts, and other killer weather conditions.

Most action set pieces — which are the movie’s biggest selling point, given its IMAX presentation here in America — are marred by cheap-looking computer graphics and image-compositing, especially whenever the mountaineering team is super-imposed on the side of Everest during helicopter or crane shots. But impressive sound design,

Movie Review – The Wandering Earth (2019)

The Wandering Earth, 2019.

Directed by Frant Gwo.

Starring Jing Wu, Chuxiao Qu, Guangjie Li, Man-Tat Ng, Mike Kai Sui, Jin Mai Jaho, Hongchen Li.

Synopsis:

Sometime in the future, the sun is dying out, so mankind have built gigantic thrusters to propel the Earth from its orbit, to find a new home across the solar system. With the journey set to last 2500 years, it’s a mission fraught with danger, with The Wandering Earth chronicling the adventures of the intrepid young survivors at the heart of the story.

Frant Gwo’s science-fiction blockbuster crash lands onto Netflix as something of a perplexing surprise. Not least because surely its near $700 million Chinese box-office receipts afforded it more of a fanfare than being inconspicuously dumped on the streaming platform’s notoriously labyrinthine menu page. But maybe it’s deserving of such a fate?

The story is bonkers. It’s the kind of

Chinese Box Office Aims to Push Black Panther Past $1 Billion

With Black Panther approaching its fourth weekend in theaters, there is no question that it will reach the $1 billion plateau, but how soon it reaches this milestone remains to be seen. The McU blockbuster has taken in $506.4 million domestic and an equally impressive $403.4 million in international markets for a worldwide total of $909.8 million, and it's possible that its final international market, China, where it opens on March 9, could be enough to put it over $1 billion. While most Marvel movies take in over $100 million in the Middle Kingdom, a strong showing there could vault it even higher up the all-time box office charts, in rather impressive fashion.

For several years, the conventional "wisdom" about black-centric movies like Black Panther is that they don't make too much money overseas, a myth that has most certainly been shattered by Black Panther. The movie is about to surpass the international totals of Wonder Woman

The Highest Grossing Movies of 2017

Luke Owen explores the highest grossing movies of 2017…

Another movie year has come to a close, and what a year it has been. We’ve had five movies from the Marvel and DC movie universes, another entry into Star Wars cannon, and several horror films break into the mainstream media and earn huge money at the box office. While 2017 wasn’t as competitive as previous years, there are a few surprises.

Firstly Justice League is missing from both the domestic and global box office, earning $647 million worldwide to take twelfth place. It feel behind the much cheaper R-rated It ($698 million), which would have had a bigger task ahead of itself to bring eyes to the screen. It’s not been a great year for the Dceu behind the scenes, however the much-better received and reviewed Wonder Woman did make its way into the highest grossing films of the year with a much more palatable $821 million.
