Yeah I don't see Nolan rushing on it, so it won't be done in time for July. WB does have some movie call Transcendence with Johnny Depp. I am sure that will come out in the summer, but Depp has been unreliable lately.

Yes the first Hobbit movie grossed the lowest of any previous movie but it still reached $300 million something no X-Men movie has ever done. Read my other posts, there is no precedence for it. You're assuming everything is gonna go right DoFP while saying the other two movies will suffer when they proven they've done it before.

So if Halle, James, and Famke does return this will officially be one of the biggest of next year, however if James and Famke are there I think we may only see them briefly or even in an after credits scene.

Should the original cast then make one final film or should this be it?

Absolutely not. They had their time. Time to move on. I view this film as a throw back movie that pays tribute to their previous efforts, but they won't be the main attractions, and that's a good thing. Hopefully Wolverine doesn't have an hour of screen time either. Let's just say I'd be suprised if OT actors had major roles. 40 minutes of future scenes is enough, in addition to the screen time for the time travelers. This is a sequel to the prequel.

If they ever make X4-6, and it takes place years into the future, then maybe. But the actors will probably be replaced anyway because I don't see them committing another trilogy. After this, I'd like to see a late 70's-80's X-Men movie that touches on some late Cold War stuff or terrorism. Omega Red, Sinister, the mutant massacre, all powerful events in the history of X-Men lore. You can end with Xavier recruiting the classic roster with the help of Magneto.

I didn't say that they'd suffer. They will do what they do. And yeah, I'm assuming they get this right and X-Men is the next Avengers and TDK. It has that potential, absolutely believe that. I think it will post a monster domestic number. 8-900 WW.

DoFP is surely the trickiest X-film to get right to date. But if it works you are combining the best from 2 stellar casts with the guy who succeeded with X-Men in a much more difficult time for superhero films. We still haven't seen many of the X-Men with the level of visuals & power displays that we would expect (unlike Avengers for eg) & if that happens then we are dealing with an elevated product rather than what we've had in the past. So the future box office of DoFP won't necessarily be directly correlated to past X-films like Avengers wasn't directly related to Iron Man (remember that claim? ) or other constituent films.

Rotten Tomatoes consensus on Jack the Giant Slayer:

Quote:
It's enthusiastically acted and reasonably fun, but Jack the Giant Slayer is also overwhelmed by its digital effects and a story so middle-of-the-road as to be a bit bland and impersonal.
Eh, no reason to hit the panic button. Although I'm a bit concerned about X-Men going digital.

I love X-Men but I wouldn't be confident saying that right now. But I do hope it will be the biggest domestic release of 2014! It would be amazing especially Wolverine and First Class didn't make the top ten.

Not good. And when I say it's not good, it's not good "energy" to be around Bryan as he starts work on DoFP. I've read at least 4 reviews that stated how the critics were hesitant about what he'd do with Sentinels and the mutants after seeing Jack.
It worries that me Bryan Singer's latest film has a lower RT rating than X-Men: The Last Stand but I think this is going to be a big motivation for Singer to deliver a good X-Men movie. After Superman Returns, Vakyrie and Jack the Giant Slayer, I hope he can get his groove back with DOFP.

The main complaints seem to be script related, luckily McQuarrie has little to do with DOFP.

He thinks X3 is the best X-Men movie, so there you go!

But he wrote the screenplay for The Wolverine.

I wish the mediocre reviews for Jack didn't worry me but they do X-Men are Singer's babies so it would be nice to believe that he'd do a great job because he has a genuine passion for the franchise. But you could say exactly the same about LoTR and Peter Jackson and The Hobbit was still the disappointment of the year for me. Sadly, sometimes the director's most recent track record is more telling than the awesome stuff they've done 10 years ago.

As for DoFP, I think that if they want its box-office to be in the league of The Avengers, TDK, Avatar etc., their hardest job will be convincing the section of the general public who never saw an X-Men movie in their life and couldn't care less about the old cast or new cast that this is an unmissable event and not just another X-Men film. All of the films listed above aren't just films - they all crossed into the real phenomenon territory.

Movies shot on digital cameras versus movies shot on film. There's a debate as to the visual quality of digital film (and photography for that matter). That digital sensors lack a dynamic range in picking up details and can blow out highlights and permanently lose the details within them--whereas film can recapture any lost detail because of being under/over-exposed, from within the negative. There's also the fact that film has a grain that some viewers expect out of movies while others enjoy the "clarity" (or lack of grain) in digital pictures.

It's also widely held that the resolution of digital images is below that of film and while digital film is projected at 2K resolution, higher than that of our 1080p televisions, film itself is much higher than that.

It should be noted that I'm no expert, this is information culled from the internet that I very well could have interpreted incorrectly.

It's kind of hard to explain. Digital video cameras record movement whereas Analog cameras take pictures. Those individual pictures are projected at a certain speed of (24 fps) and it makes it look like you're watching movement.

Furthermore, Singer mentioned yesterday that he is using some of this kind of technology:

I got into an early pre-screening of JACK (in Portland) and it was fun. Nothing great but fun and Singer did a great job directing IMHO. It's a fun flick, like a Saturday matinee type. I have all the faith in the world he'll knock DOFP outta the park.

Haha I don't think he does either. I remember he had issues with the fact that Wolverine, who just has claws, and Storm, who can control the freaking weather, could realistically be considered equals and team mates when Storm's powers seem so much stronger. I generally don't think he gets mutants haha.

I agree. And with Simon Kinberg writing the script, it makes me less confident about this movie being a great film. Hopefully Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn were able to rewrite the script.

Roeper is the same guy who said Arnold deserved an Oscar nomination for T3. I don't value his opinion much.

Also the less-than-stellar reviews for Jack don't worry me too much. I have friends that worked on Jack and they told me it was obvious Singer was just doing it for the paycheck. With X-men however, you can tell Bryan is very excited.
