Toho Plans Godzilla Cinematic Universe, Ditches Shin Godzilla 2

Toho Plans Godzilla Cinematic Universe, Ditches Shin Godzilla 2
While Godzilla fans still have to wait until next March for Godzilla: King of Monsters, a follow-up to Warner Bros. and Legendary's 2014 hit Godzilla, the company that created the iconic creature is starting their own shared universe. Keiji Ota, who is the "Chief Godzilla Officer" for the iconic Japanese company Toho, revealed that they plan on releasing a new Godzilla movie at least every two years, after the year 2021. Here's what he had to say, comparing this initiative to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"After 2021, we're thinking of a potential strategy that (releases) Godzilla movies uninterrupted at a rate of every 2 years, although there is a preference for a yearly pace as well. The future of the series and its forwarding developments are very conscious of the method of 'shared universe'. Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, etc. could all share a single world view much like a Marvel movie where Iron

Movie Review – Mary and the Witch’s Flower (2018)

Mary and the Witch’s Flower, 2018.

Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi.

Featuring the voice talents of Ruby Barnhill, Kate Winslet, Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Jim Broadbent and Ewen Bremner.

Synopsis:

A girl bored of rural life finds herself transported to a school of magic when she picks an unusual flower in the woods.

Since the closure of Studio Ghibli in 2014, the role of ‘Japanese Animation King’ has been vacant, though the brief demise of Ghibli is set to end with a new Hayao Miyazaki movie in the pipeline. Makoto Shinkai’s wildly ambitious and ferociously poignant Your Name staked its claim a few years ago and, now, fledgling animation house Studio Ponoc – founded by former Ghibli producer Yoshiaki Nishimura – has stepped up to the plate with Mary and the Witch’s Flower.

Ponoc’s debut feature, directed by Ghibli alumnus Hiromasa Yonebayashi (When Marnie Was There) is a beautifully realised fairytale that

China and Japan Hatching Co-Production Treaty

  • Variety
Asian neighbors and frequent rivals Japan and China are expected to sign a film co-production treaty next month.

The news was reported Wednesday by Japan’s Asahi newspaper, citing Foreign Ministry sources.

The treaty would be the first of its kind for Japan, whose film production and distribution industries have seen a lull in growth after pushing back Hollywood in the last decade. China has nearly 20 bilateral film and TV agreements. Its domestic industry is booming, but its film exports have not kept pace.

Final details of the accord have yet to be revealed, though the Asahi report points to films produced under the treaty as acquiring dual nationality. That would allow Chinese-Japanese co-produced films to escape China’s import quotas. Japan has no restrictions on foreign films, though very few Chinese titles have succeeded at the Japanese box office in recent years.

Japan’s “Your Name” earned $83 million at

Just Try Not to Cry When You Watch Sufjan Stevens's Tender Performance at the Oscars

There are some pretty spectacular films and actors being honored at the 2018 Academy Awards, and we certainly can't ignore the amazing music. Sufjan Stevens's song "Mystery of Love" in Call Me by Your Name was nominated for best original song, and when he performed it live on stage, we're pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye in the building. Sufjan performed alongside St. Vincent, Moses Sumney, Chris Thile of Nickel Creek/Punch Brothers, Casey Foubert, and James McAlister. It was understated, vulnerable, and oh so tender - definitely a perfect representation of the spirit of Call Me by Your Name. RelatedMary J.

Black Panther Beats Wizard of Oz as Rotten Tomatoes' Best Movie Ever

Black Panther has passed The Wizard of Oz to become Rotten Tomatoes top movie of all time. The aggregated review site keeps a list of the top 100 movies, based on the number of reviews a movie receives and how positive those scores are.

Movie Review – The Shape of Water (2017)

The Shape of Water, 2017.

Directed by Guillermo del Toro.

Starring Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, Nick Searcy, and David Hewlett.

China box office: 'Secret Superstar' top again, surpasses 'Your Name'

It was a flat week at the box office, with New Year blockbusters waiting in the wings.

It was a flat week (Feb 5-11) right before Chinese New Year as generally expected. Most of the charts looked quite similar to the week before, with only two small releases added. Chinese New Year blockbusters will make up for the loss next week.

Without any strong contenders, Bollywood musical Secret Superstar scored a hat trick, topping the box office for three straight weeks.

Aamir Khan’s latest hit about a young girl who aspires to become a famous singer added $18.7 for $114.7m after 24 days. It has now surpassed Japanese animation Your Name to become the second highest grossing non-Hollywood foreign film ever, only after Dangal.

Local romance drama Till The End Of The World, with Yang Zishan and Mark Chao, climbed one spot to second place with $16.4m for $30m after 11 days, pushing Maze Runner: The Death Cure to the
