Is Marvel studios a partcularly hard studio for directors? There has been talk about that since Edgar Wright left Ant-Man. Maybe Marvel is tough on directors. Also, it could that the studio’s success draws extra attention. Is Paramount, just as an example, seen as a less difficult studio for directors?
A Sin City 2 poster with Eva Green has been rejected by the MPAA. I wonder how much of the film will be edited to get an R rating. The first movie seemed to test the boundaries of the rating. I am not sure if I want to see this movie or not.
DC/Warner Brothers is reportedly not connecting the Arrow series with the Batman v Superman movie. That is different than what Marvel studos has done. I wonder why DC made that choice.
Unneeded remakes, or at least remakes that seem unneeded
- the Raid
Five movies for the fall
- a Walk Among the Tombstones
- Kill the Messenger
- the Hunger Games Mockingjay part 1
- Gone Girl
- the Hobbit the Battle of the Five Armies
All the movies on the list are based on books. I am not sure if that means anything. It could just be a coindence. Or it could be the fall is usually the time for movies based off of books.
