Warner CEO talks DARK KNIGHT and SUPERMAN tentpoles

Silicon Alley Insider has a summary of a recent investor conference call with Warner Bros CEO Jeff Bewkes. At one point during the call Bewkes talks about 'The Dark Knight' and how it effects the studio's tentpole strategy:

...Bewkes says Dark Knight was the second most profitable film in history. Close to Titantic. "The obvious thing we're goign to take from it is more Dark Knight." We look at Harry Potter It's fantastic to have franchises that last that long. We want to do that with Batman and Superman and perhaps Sherlock Holmes. The sequals are as good, with new characters added, as were the originals. That wasn't the case in the years ago. "Warners has more tentpoles as an on-going strategy taht very much lifts its distribution and peformance." We think that's going to hold up our slate in the 2009 - 2010 period. We've got four more big tentpoles coming this year.

SMALLVILLE director to helm FREEMIND film

Remember Future Comics from a few years back? They were one of many 21st Century small-press publishers crushed down by the unforgiving comic book marketplace.

Still their concepts live on as MTV Splash Page reports that producer David Uslan plans to bring their 'Freemind' concept to the big screen with TV vet David Nutter at the helm.

'Freemind' told the story of a Stephen Hawking-esque genius who builds an artificial surrogatee body for himself as a way to regain mobility. He becomes able to transfer his intellect into the superhuman robotic form for brief periods of time, and ends up unleashing all the potential of his mind.

Ulsan says that Nutter, a veteran of fan-fave shows like 'Smallville', 'The X-Files' and 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' is poised to make his feature film debut.

“[Nutter] is a very character-driven director,” said Uslan. "This was a very non-comics comic book, based purely around a character — so he’s the perfect person for it.”

Ok.... I've officially given up on this Dragonball Movie......after hoping, turning the other cheek, and ignoring the shit talking.

I have never watched the Dragonall cartoon, so I have nothing to go on other than the trailer. it looks cool, but it is one I would wait until video to watch, just like Street Fighter.

And I wonder what the 4 big ones WB has this year? Watchmen, Terminator, Harry Potter, and what else? I also hope they do something with Superman soon. I just want them to make a kick-ass Supes movie.

I thought James Marsden looked pretty cool as picallo, but other than that I think I'll just rent this on DVD.

redhairs99 2/5/2009 11:00:47 AM

Xeno, I think you meant James Marsters (Spike on Buffy and Angel).  James Marsden is Cyclops in the X-Men films.

Well, at least it looks like the story (what little there may be) wil move faster in the movie than in the cartoon. It looks better than the cartoon (which doesn't say much) so I'll be there with my popcorn.

I've never watched Dragonball Z nor do I really know who the characters except Picallo,but I have to say this movie looks a helluva alot better then the new Street Fighter film.At least the characters look somewhat like their cartoon counterparts I mean Marsden looks like a badass as Picallo so I rather watch this film then Street Fighter movie.

You know what's funny is that SF is coming out this month and I haven't seen any advertisements on tv and not a whole lot on the internet so what's that tell you what the film is gonna be like?Crap that's what it's gonna be.

Just take your time WB on the Batman and Superman franchise don't rush into it we don't want another Batman and Robin and Superman Quest for Peace type movies again.

I'm with Whiskey, I've never seen one of the cartoons so to me it's a stand alone. I like Marsden and he looks cool (always thought he should have played Constentine) and the effects look good as well (can't go wrong blowin shit up) and you know all the screamin kids are gonna drag their parents down to see it.

 

Like Max Payne that most people who played the game hated, my girlfriend and I liked it cause we had nothing to go off of. Of course it's the oppisite with G I Joe as she is stoked about it (she's never seen it) and I am still on the bubble (having grown up on it) and am waiting for some more pics of characters and vehicles.

I guess it comes down to shit or get off the pot. Either you go see it and have an open mind or you stay home and wait for it to premere on Spike (yes I'm using my advise for Joe) In the end I'll wait till Dragonball comes out and see what is at the theaters as well

David Nutter made his "feature film debut" in 1998 with Disturbing Behaviour.

Did you know a pig's orgasm lasts for 30 mins? 

Mosquito's are attracted twice as much to the color blue than any other color?

"Go" is the shortest complete sentence in the English language?

Yes, all facts.  Now you are wondering, why, why would this fool type this here.  Well you are in luck kids cause I'm gonna tell you.  I figured you cats needed some knowledge after going RETARDED from seeing that POS trailer of Dragonball.

No thanks necessary.
