BOX OFFICE: 'JOKER' EYES HEFTY $80 MILLION-PLUS DEBUT

Joker trailer

Variety is reporting that Warner Bros.’ The Joker, an origin story about the notorious Batman villain, is shaping up to be a big hit despite being one of the darkest mainstream movies to hit screens in years.

The film is on pace to debut to a sizable $76 million to $88 million when it hits theaters on Oct. 4, according to early tracking. Some executives believe those numbers are very inflated because the film is so unconventional and has characteristics that could alienate fanboys and fangirls as well as more mainstream crowds. The studio believes the dark thriller could launch in the $50 million to $55 million range.

Even if Joker opens well below that bullish tracking, a start above $50 million-plus would be a success.

DYNAMITE: CHAOS! SKETCH CARDS BRING THE HORROR TO KICKSTARTER!
06/02/20 @ 4:43 pm EST
Source: Disney | Categories: Dynamite | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


The creeps and the crawlies of the Chaos! crew comes to Kickstarter today for a limited time sketch card celebration of their 25th anniversary!

Live right now, and with Early Bird Special discounts for the first 24 hours, fans can get truly one-of-a-kind sketch cards featuring their favorite characters from the Chaos! universe. All manner of psychos, vamps, and demons are depicted by a diverse range of fan-favorite artists from the community. The likes of Evil Ernie, Purgatori, Chastity, Lady Demon, Mistress Hel, Jade, The Chosen, and countless other classic characters have been drawn in all kinds of styles and will be packed in special red and stamped Kickstarter-exclusive protective envelopes.




This limited-time offer will only last one week and then the cards and rewards will be shipped immediately after, to reward Chaos! and sketch cards fans for their tremendous support of the franchise and Dynamite through the years.

Sketch card artists who have contributed to this set include Roy Cover, April Reyna, Dan Curto, Daniel Gorman, Edward Santia, Huy Truong, Jeffrey C. Benitez, Joe DelBeato, Karl Jones, Ken Haeser, Kevin B. Cleveland, Lee Hunt, Mai Irving, Marcia Dye, Mitch Ballard, Norvien Basio, Rich Molinelli, Scott Harrell, Tone Rodriguez, Zachary Woolsey, Mikey Chiume Jr, and many more!



The campaign features many special reward options for collectors. Including glow-in-the-dark cards! As well as ways to focus on a favorite character such as Evil Ernie, Chastity or Purgatori - or all three. Rare puzzle card sets are available as well. For the comic fans and as an affordable add-on, Dynamite is also offering two critically acclaimed Chaos! graphic novels as well as surprise boxes of single issues mixed with other Dynamite classics. The to-the-point titled Chaos is the perfect entry point to the world for those wanting to dive right in. The 2014 miniseries event relaunched the wider world of Chaos! under the Dynamite banner. Written by Chaos! superfan Tim Seeley (Nightwing, Hack/Slash) and drawn by today's master of flirty demons, Mirka Andolfo (Mercy, Catwoman), fans welcomed the exciting revival. While the perfect companion is Tim and brother Steve Seeley's deep dive into the sick, rotted brain of Evil Ernie, the nightmarish centerpiece of Chaos!


The seeds of the Chaos! universe go all the way back to the creation of Ernie in 1991 by Brian Pulido and Steven Hughes. A couple of years later and the burgeoning Chaos! Comics was founded, becoming one of the hottest names in the competitive 1990s comics industry. Their unique concept of essentially taking a shared superhero world, but filling it with vicious, reprehensible, and straight-up evil characters with a horror and metal lens stood them out against the usual spandex. Artwork from legends like Steven Hughes and Ed Benes had fans biting their nails but unable to look away. That legacy continues today, in these sketch cards and beyond.

Joe Exotic's meteoric rise from farm boy to Tiger King fame is all laid out in an upcoming comic book ... and TMZ has the first look at Joe's origin story and its special edition cover.

TMZ obtained a couple of pages from Michael Frizell and TidalWave Production's new project, Infamous Tiger King, which hits the shelves at the end of June, and it's pretty wild.

The graphic novel picks up where Tiger King left off, with Joe behind bars and Jeff Lowe running the zoo ... and it depicts Joe as a larger-than-life character as it dives into his crazy journey from rural Kansas to pop culture icon.

KATE LETH'S FIRST GRAPHIC NOVEL, 'MALL GOTH', FROM SIMON & SCHUSTER

Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Publishers Weekly has reported that comics creator Kate Leth's Mall Goth is a new YA graphic novel being published by Simon & Schuster in the spring of 2022.

The comic "follows angsty teen goth Liv as she navigates the highs and lows of firsts—first out queer kid at school, first dead-end job as a store mascot, and first love that garners the unwanted attention of her teacher."

Leth tweeted: "Oh man, I've wanted to post one of these for a DECADE. I am beyond excited to announce: MALL GOTH My DEBUT GRAPHIC NOVEL coming at you in 2022." She continued, "YES this is why I've been so busy! YES this is both written and drawn by me! YES it will feature both striped armwarmers and an empathetic look at victims of grooming by predatory adults that will hopefully help young people identify red flags!!! YES IT WILL REFERENCE EVANESCENCE. Extreme thanks to @jenlinnan for believing in this project for the last few years (?!) as we've pitched and prepared. I'm so excited. AAAAH!! There's not much I can share yet, but it's probably okay to post this image from the initial pitch, right?" (via Bleeding Cool)

‘THE FLASH’ WILL BATTLE DC COMICS VILLAIN [SPOILER] IN SEASON 7
06/01/20 @ 12:50 pm EST
Source: TV Line | Categories: DC | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Flash Godspeed Season 7

The CW’s The Flash first teased the introduction of the white-and-gold clad Godspeed during Season 5, when Barry and Iris’ daughter Nora, in the year 2049, bested the sinister speedster with a good amount of help from the imprisoned Eobard Thawne aka Reverse-Flash.

The Season 6 premiere then established that Team Flash in the present day had chased down a total of four Godspeed drones, all of whom were incapable of speaking except in a screeching “modem language.” When the real Godspeed appeared to show up in this season’s penultimate hour, Barry was able to sideline him with the help of Hartley Rathaway/Pied Piper. Alas, that was not the real August Heart either, Barry came to realize.

After all these fake-outs, it would seem The Flash had teased Godspeed long enough and now is ready to actually play that villainous card. So come Season 7, premiering in early 2021, will Team Flash finally go up against the honest-to-goodness, one true Godspeed?

“Yes, you just might…,'” showrunner Eric Wallace coyly told TVLine during an end-of-season Q&A session, letting slip a bit of an evil laugh. “Because that’s where we’re going!”
‘THE WRETCHED’ REACHES RARE BOX OFFICE MILESTONE SHARED BY ‘BLACK PANTHER’ AND ‘AVATAR’

IFC Films' 'The Wretched'

Over the last 23 years, only Titanic, The Sixth Sense, Avatar, Black Panther and now The Wretched have topped the box office for five consecutive weekends.

When there is only one movie pulling in anything resembling “business,” at least among studios actually reporting grosses, it’s not hard to be the top movie of a given day or weekend. Nonetheless, happenstance, luck and good (or terrible) timing has left IFC’s The Wretched as the closest thing to a box office hit this summer. Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce’s throwback horror title The Wretched earned another $181,000 this weekend in 75 theaters. That’s an expansion from 59 theaters (mostly drive-ins) from last weekend, and a 23.4% drop from the previous Fri-Sun frame. For what it’s worth, this is the first weekend where the film has dropped from its previous Fri-Sun gross.

The Wretched, about a young teen who goes to live with his father during a contentious divorce only to stumble onto potentially supernatural shenanigans, opened on May 1 in just 12 theaters, again mostly drive-ins, with $65,908. It earned $69,608 (+5.6%) in weekend two in 19 theaters, $91,975 (+32.1%) in 21 theaters in its third weekend and then $216,288 over the Fri-Sun portion (+135.2%) of its $236.334 Fri-Mon Memorial Day weekend frame in 59 theaters. By this past Thursday, it had earned $659,760 in 28 days of domestic release. (via Forbes)
SPACEX’S CREW DRAGON SUCCESSFULLY DOCKS WITH THE SPACE STATION

On Sunday morning, SpaceX’s new Crew Dragon capsule successfully docked with the International Space Station, bringing the company’s first crew to the orbiting outpost. Their arrival marks another major milestone for SpaceX’s first crewed mission of the Crew Dragon, which successfully took off Saturday from Cape Canaveral.

Now, the Crew Dragon’s passengers — NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley — are set to begin an extended stay on board the ISS that could last up to four months. They will join three crew mates already living on board the station: NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy and Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner.

The Crew Dragon’s docking showcased one of the biggest features of SpaceX’s capsule: its automated docking system. The vehicle is designed to autonomously approach the ISS and latch on to a standardized docking port, without any input from its human passengers. SpaceX successfully showcased this ability last year when the company sent a test version of the Crew Dragon to the space station without a crew on board. But this time, the company needed to prove that the Crew Dragon could deliver when it had its most precious cargo on board. (via The Verge)
HBO MAX SCORES 'YOUNG SHELDON' STREAMING RIGHTS

Deadline reports that HBO Max has snapped up the rights to Young Sheldon in the latest big streaming deal.

The nascent digital platform, which launched this week, struck a deal with sister company Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for all three seasons to The Big Bang Theory spin-off.

This brings all of the BBT universe under one streaming roof after HBO Max closed a major deal last year to pick up all 279 episodes of the original CBS sitcom.

The service didn’t reveal when the show, which stars Iain Armitage as a young Sheldon Cooper, would air and wouldn’t disclose financial details of the deal. However, it is likely to be much less than it paid for its parent show, a deal thought to be north of $600M.
‘CLARICE’: ELIZABETH KLAVITER NAMED SHOWRUNNER

Deadline reports that The Resident executive producer Elizabeth Klaviter has joined the newly picked-up CBS drama series Clarice, from Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, as executive producer/showrunner.

Klaviter will serve as day-to-day showrunner on the Silence of the Lambs sequel starring Rebecca Breeds, working alongside executive producers Kurtzman and Lumet, who wrote the pilot episode and will continue to have hands-on creative involvement.

Clarice was one of two CBS dramas, along with The Equalizer, to receive a straight-to-series pickup this month after their pilots could not be produced due to the coronavirus pandemic. Along with other 2020 CBS pilots, Clarice got an order for a second script. The high-profile drama also had previously opened a mini writers room to break stories for the pilot.

RYAN GOSLING'S 'WOLFMAN' GEARS UP AT UNIVERSAL AS DIRECTOR DECISION NEARS

Months after Universal successfully relaunched its monster universe with Elisabeth Moss’s The Invisible Man, the studio is pushing ahead for Wolfman — which is being developed as a starring vehicle for Ryan Gosling — to be the next movie based on its catalog of iconic creatures.

Sources said that executives at Universal have been meeting with directors over the past month and could be making a decision soon on who will take the reins behind the camera. While there is no frontrunner at the time, Cory Finley, who recently received rave reviews for directing HBO’s drama Bad Education with Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney, is said to be in the mix for the job.

Universal and CAA had no comment.

It’s unknown what the new take on Wolfman will look like, though it is believed to be set in present times and in the vein of Jake Gyllenhaal’s thriller Nightcrawler, with an obvious supernatural twist. (via Variety)
