BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
It hasn't been an easy road for Fox's superhero adventure Gambit, and now it looks like Ragin' Cajun's solo film has been delayed even further. Here's when it will finally get rolling.
Many superhero movies have been successful at transitioning important characters from the printed page to the big screen. Unfortunately, there have also been many instances where beloved heroes and villains havenít been treated with that kind of respect.
It's early in the going, but 2016 has already had a couple of massive hits and one big budget box office flop. With that in mind, here are ten upcoming movies that could similarly fall flat on their faces.
It was reported over the weekend that 20th Century Fox has secured two dates for still-to-be-identified superhero movies. Weíve gathered a list of the suspects that we think are most likely to take these dates.
2016 is loaded up with interesting and exciting films this year, including Captain America: Civil War, Ghostbusters, Suicide Squad, Finding Dory and the anticipated Star Wars spinoff, Rogue One.
20th Century Fox's X-Men universe is going to undergo some significant changes this year, and now we've learned how the solo films like Deadpool and Gambit fit into the bigger picture.
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been humming along for years, it was actually Fox who started the comic book movie boom with the first X-Men film. In recent years the studio has begun to look at ways to continue and expand the mutant universe.
But what are these titles? When are they coming out? Who is in them? What are they about? For your convenience, weíve put together this handy little guide that will help you know everything you need to know about the year in superhero films.
But whatís the Gambit film going to be about? Who is it going to star? Who has been put in charge of making it? We answer all of those questions and more in this latest installment of our What We Know So Far guides. Read on and learn!
Although it was announced in 2013, thereís been no word on whether the X-Force movie is moving forward, but now we know the heroes that were being looked at to headline the story at one point.
Itís important that Gambit have a feel of its own rather than rehash previous stories and elements. Now we know how itís going to distinguish itself from the main X-Men movies.
s popular as superhero movies are, finding a director for one is apparently far from easy. Channing Tatum has been working on making a Gambit movie for years. Heís had pretty much everything he needed except a director.
If youíve been following the development of the X-Men spin-off movie Gambit, then you know that it has been in a bit of trouble recently.
The clock is ticking on finding a new director for Gambit after Rupert Wyatt exited the project, but now it appears that have three finalists that are up for the job.
Foxís Gambit isnít the first film ó nor the first superhero film ó to lose its director, but it was nonetheless disconcerting when Rupert Wyatt dropped out. So who would be an interesting enough name to man the helm on the Channing Tatum pic? The latest buzz is forming around Doug Liman.
Although Rupert Wyattís departure from Gambit was originally attributed to a scheduling conflict, it seems other issues may actually be to blame.
Apparently, Gambit has 99 problems, but Rogue ainít one ó which totally blows. Following the news that Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt dropped out of the solo Gambit film for Fox, Anna Paquin has come out to confirm that she will not be reprising her role in the film. Talk about a missed opportunity.
There are many things to consider when thinking about a possible director to make Gambit. Itís a filmmaker who should know how to shoot interesting and kinetic action, but you also want somebody who could find the proper tone to get the right amount of drama.
The Channing Tatum-fronted superhero flick Gambit can't catch a break. The latest hurdle it has to clear is a significant loss, too, as the director has reportedly jumped ship.
Although itís been confirmed that all X-Men films and spinoffs will take place in the same world, itís been unclear how much these characters will be interacting with each other, but now weíve learned there will be official crossovers in the future.
