Greg Berlanti on the Flash/Supergirl Musical, Four-Show Crossover

Greg Berlanti on the Flash/Supergirl musical, four-show crossover

Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl executive producer Greg Berlanti has talked to IndieWire about the four shows’ upcoming, anticipated seasons and how they will crossover. Berlanti previously announced that a The Flash/Supergirl musical crossover would be happening and air as two episodes of the respective shows.

“We just finished writing the fall crossovers,” he told the site. “And now we’re trying to figure out how to produce them. That’s probably the most challenging thing we do all year. And now we’re doing it across three shows! But next week we’ll have to start talking about clearing music. I have a few ideas for tone and style in my head but we’re just starting to talk about what that can be. I do want to try and get an original piece of music written. As we make a deal on that we’ll probably make some announcements on the original songs.”

He added that he couldn’t say who they are talking to yet, but he “did speak to someone we’re really excited about. There are some writers I’m incredibly excited to work with.”

Regarding the crossover that will happen with all the shows, Berlanti had this update:

“You really are trying to run a single production across three different productions. But they’re run as three separate entities. We have to figure out when we’re borrowing one actor from where. We’re telling one cohesive story; ‘Supergirl’ will participate, but the storyline doesn’t actively begin there. There are some characters who show up in her episode, but the story begins with ‘The Flash’ episode and goes to ‘Arrow’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow.’ We’re just getting into designing the bad guy for it, and we start now but it doesn’t air until the end of November. We will put a lot of time between now and then figuring out visual effects sequences. Just today I was holding the three scripts back-to-back – that’s 180 pages of material. It’s a three-hour story, almost a miniseries.”

All four of the shows are set to premiere this October, beginning with The Flash on Tuesday, October 4, then Arrow on Wednesday, October 5, Supergirl on Monday, October 10, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on Thursday, October 13.

New Blair Witch Video Discovered!

Check out new Blair Witch footage!

A mysterious package reveals new Blair Witch video footage and more!

Last week, a video emerged online that offered some new clues about what happened to Lisa Arlington and her documentary crew, who disappeared in Maryland’s Black Hills Forest two years ago. We immediately reached out to the individual that posted the video and, following a brief correspondence through his or her Twitter account, a package was delivered containing artifacts from the Black Hills.

In May 2014, Arlington and her team went missing alongside the subject of the documentary, James Donahue. Donahue was the younger brother of Heather Donahue, who herself went missing in the Black Hills in 1996. Her footage was infamously recovered and released as a feature documentary, The Blair Witch Project. Naturally, Arlington’s disappearance has created quite a lot of speculation about who or what might be responsible.

Dark Truth301 writes:

You have been chosen for the Army of Truth… 
 
For years we had been working with our friends at Darknet666 to uncover a massive conspiracy happening in Western Maryland. Until they went missing in 2014. 
 
Our investigation took an unexpected turn when Darknet666 found a tape in the Black Hills woods. They uploaded the footage to youtube in hopes that someone might know what it meant or where it was filmed.  Soon after they were contacted by a guy named James. He was part of a documentary film crew going out into those same woods. They joined the crew, looking for answers of their own.
 
That was May 11, 2014. No one has seen or heard from any of them since. 
 
Though authorities “gave up”, we did not. We’ve continued to try piecing the story together but hit a series of dead ends… until recently. A few weeks ago we acquired unreleased materials that were part of the investigation. We can’t say how, but trust us when we say this is legit. We’ve enclosed some of those materials here, including:
 
– 2 clips from Lisa Arlington’s recovered drone camera
– The last known photographs taken of the group, including Lisa and our friends
– A photograph taken of physical evidence authorities claimed they “never found”
 
Why didn’t this information get released? What are the authorities trying to hide? 
 
While searching through DarkNet666’s hard drive, we also found numerous clips and articles about infamous Maryland serial killer Rustin Parr. No matter what you believe about the supernatural, or who exactly might’ve been telling him to kill those children, there’s little doubt that our friends felt there was some connection between Rustin’s crimes and the events that led James and Lisa into the woods. As for us, we believe there’s something truly evil hiding in those woods.
 
Your mission is to help us spread the word. For decades, the authorities have been systematically removing all signs, traces, and mentions of the disturbing events happening in the Black Hills. These are not isolated instances. 
 
The authorities do not trust us with the truth, so we’ll take matters into our own hands. We’ve set up a system of dead drops locally to share information off the grid, but we need help to extend our reach. Please share what you find in this box. Post online as often as you can, the more trusted soldiers who participate, the greater our chance of success.
 
@DarkTruth301

P.S. We’re fans of nature so please accept our recycled packing products- actual remnants of the Frederick Watershed Woods.

You can check out images of the package’s contents in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page and, in the players below, watch three new Blair Witch videos.

Darknet666 also maintains a WordPress blog, although it has not been updated since shortly after Arlington’s disappearance. You can also check out the original Kickstarter page for Arlington’s film as well as her Tumblr site. What’s more, anyone with any information on Lisa’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Finding Lisa Arlington Facebook group.

Do you think these videos could be new evidence that the Blair Witch is really out there? Share your thoughts in the below!

Chris Pratt Calls Guardians Vol. 2 ‘Biggest Spectacle Movie of All Time’

Chris Pratt Calls Guardians Vol. 2 "Biggest Spectacle Movie of All Time"

Chris Pratt calls Guardians Vol. 2 “biggest spectacle movie of all time”

Though we’re still a few months away from the release of the highly-anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, star Chris Pratt is ready to start the hype machine for the film. Speaking with The Toronto Sun, Pratt had a big claim, saying:

”It’s a fabulous script. I think it’s going to be – I’m not using hyperbole, here – I think it’s going to be the biggest spectacle movie of all time.”

He went on to address the criticism of how many superhero movies are being made, which he said doesn’t bother him.

“To be part of Guardians of the Galaxy, is to be part of a franchise that really is so totally different. It’s new and exciting and unlike anything people had seen before. There are a lot of superheroes out there, but I think we do something a little different. The genesis of these characters was in the Marvel Universe but we do something a little different, more cosmic, with Guardians of the Galaxy.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast also includes the return of Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (SPECTRE, The Man with the Iron Fists) as Drax; Vin Diesel (xXx, Furious 7) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (Joy, American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (Slither, Jumper) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, The Big Short) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, “Gilmore Girls”) as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff (Oldboy), who plays Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Everest), Chris Sullivan (“The Knick,” The Drop) and Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight, Furious 7) as Ego.

Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Nik Korda and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Look for it to hit the big screen May 5, 2017.

Game of Thrones: House Stark’s Remaining Children

Game of Thrones: House Stark's Remaining Children

Game of Thrones: House Stark’s Remaining Children

The kids of Westeros have grown up before our eyes during Game of Thrones‘ six seasons on HBO. From innocent children to teenage visionaries, take a look back at House Stark’s remaining children and how they have changed since we first met them in Winterfell.

The eldest Stark daughter, Sansa was introduced as a slightly petulant girl with a naïve worldview. She has since evolved into a more hardened and ruthlessly-powerful woman of the north.

Crippled early during season one, we weren’t sure what to expect from young Bran. He has since proved to be a vital part of the show’s storyline as one of few characters known who possess magical abilities.

The younger Stark sister, Arya, has always appeared to have a thick skin. However, it was until she skewered the head of her recent adversary in season six that we knew she was a total badass.

Based on the popular book series “A Song of Ice and Fire,” by George R.R. Martin, the hit Emmy-winning fantasy series chronicles an epic struggle for power in a vast and violent kingdom. The ensemble cast for the fifth season included Emmy and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Aidan Gillen, Kit Harington, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner.

David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield are the executive producers. The co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin.

Finding Dory Wins Second Weekend Against Independence Day: Resurgence

Finding Dory Wins Second Weekend Against Independence: Day Resurgenceid4dory

Finding Dory wins second weekend at the box office against Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence

Despite the release of a number of new movies in wide and limited release, Disney•Pixar‘s animated sequel Finding Dory won its second weekend at the box office with $73.2 million, down about 46% from its record-setting opening weekend. It has grossed $287 million domestically, so far making it Pixar Animation’s fifth highest-grossing movie, as it has already surpassed the domestic gross of Monsters University in 2013. It should surpass Up‘s $293 million this coming week and the $340 million the original Finding Nemo grossed in 2003 by next weekend.

Finding Dory added another $37 million internationally over the weekend to bring its overseas total to $110.3 million and $397 million globally with many territories still to get the animated sequel. (Universal Pictures’  own animated offering The Secret Life of Pets did open internationally with $15.2 million in advance of its North American release on July 8.)

The widest new release of the weekend was director Roland Emmerich’s sequel Independence Day: Resurgence (20th Century Fox), starring Liam Hemsworth and fellow newcomers Maika Monroe and Jessie Usher, joining returning cast Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner, Judd Hirsch and Vivica A. Fox. It had been 20 years since Emmerich’s original Independence Day was released in 1996 when it grossed over $300 million, but clearly, this sequel didn’t have the nostalgia factor going for it like last year’s Jurassic World and reviews were less than favorable. Resurgence opened with an estimated $4 million from Thursday previews and $16.8 million on Friday in 4,068 theaters, and it ended up with an estimated $41.6 million for the weekend. That’s quite a bit less than the $50.2 million the original movie opened with and that was based on 1996 movie ticket prices.

Internationally, Independence Day: Resurgence opened in 57 markets where it earned $102.1 million including $37.3 million from 6,047 screens in China, and Korea, the UK and Mexico each bringing in around $7 million each. $15.8 million of the movie’s global opening came from its IMAX showings, $5 million of that coming from 385 North American IMAX screens.

Third place went to Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart’s action-comedy Central Intelligence (New Line/WB) with $18.4 million, down 48% in its second weekend. It has grossed $69.3 million domestically so far. It has grossed another $14.3 million overseas.

Blake Lively’s shark thriller The Shallows (Sony) opened in fourth place with $16.7 million in 2,962 theaters (averaging $5,638), making it one of the weekend’s bigger surprises since most projections had it making less than $10 million. Surprisingly, the movie received some of the best reviews of the weekend with 74% Fresh reviews on RottenTomatoes.

Filmmaker Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) teamed with Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey to tell the story of Civil War rebel Newton Knight in Free State of Jones (STX Entertainment), which received a rare summer release for an adult drama. Opening in 2,815 theaters on Friday, it grossed an estimated $7.8 million for the weekend or $2,760 per theater.

Just behind it in sixth place by a very narrow margin, James Wan’s horror sequel The Conjuring 2 (New Line/WB) added another $7.7 million in its third weekend to bring its total domestic gross to $87 million. It also brought in $21 million from 9,250 international screens bringing its total to $156 million so far.

The other returning sequel, Now You See Me 2 (Summit/Lionsgate) added another $5.6 million   (down 40% in its third weekend), bringing its domestic gross to $52.1 million.

The rest of the Top 10 ended up with less than $2.5 million for the weekend

Also opening in wide release was Nicolas (Drive) Refn’s L.A. thriller The Neon Demon (Amazon/Broad Green), starring Elle Fanning and Jena Malone, which opened in 783 theaters on Friday, but it ended up outside the Top 10 with just $606,000 or $774 per theater.

As far as limited releases, a lot of films that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival were released this weekend, including Swiss Army Man (A24), the feature film debut by the Daniels directing team, starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe. The unconventional buddy comedy about a man stranded on an island and the corpse that rescues him opened in three theaters in New York and L.A. where it grossed $114,000 or $38,000 per theater.  It’s expected to expand much wider next Friday, July 1.

Todd Solontz’s new film Wiener-Dog (IFC Films), starring Danny De Vito, Ellen Burstyn, Kieran Culkin, Julie Delpy and Greta Gerwig, opened with $27,000 in two theaters while the doc Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (Sony Pictures Classic) opened with $18,000 in the same number of theaters.
