Gal Gadot is on Bill Condon's Bride of Frankenstein wish list

Two days ago , we shared quotes that director Bill Condon provided about his Dark Universe BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN reboot while he was in pre-production on the project in London. At that time, filming was scheduled to begin on February 1, 2018 - and since the actress Universal has been hoping to cast as the Bride, Angelina Jolie, is going to start working on a sequel to MALEFICENT in...

Bill Condon sees his Bride of Frankenstein as a tribute to James Whale

The second chapter in the "Dark Universe" that Universal is building around their classic monster properties is a reboot of James Whale's 1935 classic BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN , one of the most important films in horror history. There aren't many filmmakers I would trust with the job of updating BRIDE, but Universal has made a strong choice by hiring Bill Condon to take...

Exclusive Clip: Tom Cruise and Alex Kurtzman discuss The Mummy

Director Alex Kurtzman's THE MUMMY , the first entry in the Dark Universe that Universal is planning to build around their classic monster characters, has made over $400 million at the global box office - an impressive haul that would be better for the studio if only they hadn't put $125 million into the budget and then spent $100+ million on top of that for marketing....

Max Landis is halfway done writing the An American Werewolf in London remake

John Landis's 1981 film  AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON is considered by many to be one of the best werewolf movies ever made, if not the best, so I don't envy his son Max Landis as he toils away at the task of crafting a remake of it. AMERICAN WEREWOLF would be a tough act for any filmmaker to follow (just ask AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS director Anthony Waller), but...

Head of Universal's Dark Universe isn't sure about its future

The funny thing is, over the last few months whenever someone I know/meet finds out that I work for AITH - or "one of those horror movie sites" - the first thing they always ask me is "How did you convince someone to pay your dyslexic-ass to write words?" To which I reply, "I dunno".  After that, they always ask me what I think of the DARK...

John Landis says Universal's Dark Universe isn't respectful of the monsters

Last week I shared a box office prediction post that said Universal's Dark Universe kick-off flick THE MUMMY , starring Tom Cruise was only set to make about $30M this past weekend. Turns out the film did (slightly) better than that and scored $32M. As I said in that post and will say again here, that may not seem like a small chunk of change, but when you consider that even...

The Mummy (Movie Review)

PLOT: After disturbing the tomb of an evil Egyptian princess, a man finds himself cursed to be a vessel for Set, the god of chaos. REVIEW: Universal's first attempt at relaunching their classic monsters series (Dark Universe, is what it's being called) is Alex Kurtzman's THE MUMMY, a messy, confusing, and only occasionally entertaining hodgepodge of action movie,...
