NBCUniversal Wants More Shrek Sequels

Quote :

Deadline reports that Comcast/NBCUniversal, which purchased DreamWorks Animation for $3.8 billion, is looking to revive the Shrek franchise with more sequels. It’s the studio’s biggest franchise and has been dormant ever since 2010’s Shrek Forever After, which earned $752.6 million worldwide. It brought in less domestically ($239 million) than the first three films but performed better overseas. It was followed in 2011 by Puss in Boots, a spinoff that also did better internationally.

NBCUniversal chief executive Steve Burke said that Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri will be in charge of the new films.

He added: “He is creatively going to try to help us figure out how to resurrect Shrek and take a lot of the existing DreamWorks franchises and add value as we create new franchises.”

This comes after the recent opening of a theme park attraction called Shrek’s Adventure London by Dreamworks Animation and Merlin Entertainments. The plan is to push the company’s annual earnings into the double digit billions. Merchandising will also be a huge part of the future of Dreamworks.

In 2014, Jeffrey Katzenberg hinted that Shrek could return. He said at the time: “We like to let them have a little bit of time to rest, but I think you can be confident that we’ll have another chapter in the Shrek series. We’re not finished, and more importantly, neither is he.“

Back in JPL, I asked why Sony's main Japanese corporation can't just take over the American movie arm and Mulder said their are legal issues and red tape. Can somebody go into further explanation about why it's so hard? I mean, it doesn't seem that hard for a corporation to save their own branch.

I'd have to look into it Rhedo as im not familiar with it either, but I'd imagine it'd at least partially have something to do with the international nature of it.

They can, they just don't really want to. Cultural barriers and the fact Sony has a policy of leaving their American subsidiaries alone. Japan isn't really as hands on with their stuff as Europe or North America.

I've only seen four 2016 films at this point and the order goes:
-The Witch
-Zootopia
-Deadpool
-Warcraft

I typically catch up on all of them the following year. So I'll end up watching all the 2016 movies in 2017. Razz

But wouldn't one think that their American movie corporation is in such dire straits, that Sony would seriously consider making this case an exception? I remember seeing something on Midnight's Edge that Sony had a 70% chance of going under but thanks to the PS4 and other games under Sony's control, even indirect control, that it's dropped down to either 20% or 24%.

Sony has their own Japanese branch of Sony Pictures that they use. And their film subsidiary in America is not nearly their most profitable sector. As you said, their gaming one is way bigger and their music and electronics branches are also more significant. Sure they might not want to lose that money but it seems they view that specific company as fairly insignificant. Sony has barely been profitable with it for ages. Lately apart from Bond they were only really successful during Raimi Spider-man era.

Japan by and large does not view Sony Pictures as something to fret over. That includes the parent company. If Sony Computer Entertainment starts to go under then sound the alarm, they will be scrambling to fix that.

From what I've heard, the Warcraft movie is a good movie that's faithful to the game, but it's more of a niche movie for the diehard fans and that's why it's bombed everywhere except China and Russia.

It did well in China because games like WoW and all that jazz are pretty popular in that part of the world.

I was referring to why it wasn't successful in the states. Different countries have different taste in film, it's why Transformers keeps making a ton a the box office even though it's making less and less in the states.

I know. I was just saying why it was huge over in Asia, it's like making a movie based on League of Legends and have it make a boatload of money overseas because it's HUGE in the Asian market.

Ya know...I've just realized something. People on here have said that Legendary wouldnt want Godzilla and Jurassic World to compete against one another due to coming out a few weeks apart...well apparently it didnt bother Disney as The BFG is coming out this weekend 3 weeks after Finding Dory, lol.

Not at all, it looks great.

If you're looking for other films with ridiculous concepts that are taken seriously, I recommend Adaptation and Being John Malkovich.

Thanks I might check those out. 
Have you heard the soundtrack for Swiss army man! There is preview for it here on YouTube. I think it's one of the most interesting things I've ever heard. Even has a Jurassic park theme!

We have our first image of Colin Trevorrow's upcoming film "The Book of Henry", as well as a synopsis and some words on what to expect from the film from Colin himself:

"“I wanted to do something that scared the hell out of me. An acoustic movie with intense emotion. The challenge was to give an audience the same tension and thrills they get from a blockbuster, but rely solely on story and character to do it.”"

The plot itself concerns two brothers; Peter and child prodigy Henry Carpenter (Jacob Tremblay and Jaeden Lieberher, respectively) who “collaborate on a scheme to rescue their neighbour (Maddie Ziegler) from abuse at the hands of her police commissioner dad.”

Apart from the image resembling something you might find in Super 8, Goonies or The Sandlot; a more mature version of the sort of films that Amblin have made. The presence of an abusive father who is also in a position of power could add a level of darkness to the film that could lead to some strong emotional scenes. Execution will be key.

At most, I can say that Trevorrow has his head in the right place, wanting to exercise some creative filmmaking before jumping up to the big leagues with Star Wars, in which he WILL need his A-game otherwise that fanbse will maul him like a pack of rabid wolverines. Personally, I can never stand it when people actively wish for a movie to critically/financially fail out of spite, you should be cheering for every director to make the best film possible. All the best to Colin, and I hope this is a bona fide home-run.

So I saw Purge election year tonight. Kinda disappointed tbh. I would say it's better than the first, but no where near the second. I really hope there is a 4th because the end was not satisfying IMO. 

Also after the movie was over i decided to take the plunge and see Swiss Army man! All I can say is .....
Lost for words. I can't even give a review just yet. But I will say this. I have never seen anything like it and it was bizarre, yet touching in a weird way. If you think the trailers looked good, I recommend you see it. If not stay away lol. It's more of an experience than a movie. Kinda like a drug trip.

Least it looks like Swiss Army Man broke the chain. ID4:R, Finding dory, and The Purge all seem to have come up a bit short for you. I may see it, but I doubt I'll get to it in theaters. Next movie for me, whether its in my best interest or not, is Ghostbusters.

Not so sure I would say that just yet. More experience than movie lol. 

I want to give GB a chance but I just can't.

Uhhh no. That's like saying Jurassic World 2 needs to be like an Alien film when it's not a horror movie.

Uhhh yes.

JP is a sci fi franchise. The trailer felt like an adventure movie. Actually the whole movie felt like adventure and less sci fi. It should feel more sci fi. This trailer there is about a sci fi movie, not horror movie. And I wouldn't mind a JW2 trailer like this one. I rather see JP go to horror than adventure zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Jurassic Park is a science-fiction/adventure franchise, you cannot have a JP movie without a sense of fun and adventure. The Lost World and JP3 actually lost sight of the science fiction aspects of the series to explore Isla Sorna and it's inhabitants, but JW tapped into the original classic's Frankenstein roots with the creation of the Indominus Rex as a metaphor for human greed and lust for all things immediate and extreme; bigger, louder, more teeth et cetera.

Having seen the trailer for Morgan, I cannot see myself grafting the scenes from Jurassic World onto the style and tone of the trailer. I've seen decent fan trailers that emphasize the darker side of the film and they're awesome in their own way, but I don't think it's what a general audience at the time wanted. This is not the way I would promote the next Jurassic film; yes the tone should be darker and more atmospheric, but it shouldn't be straight up horror or R-rated territory. It has to walk that fine balance of being an adventure film, being a science fiction thriller and having some horror elements to it. Now that both the GA and the fans have had their fill of a fun, nostalgia-filled dinosaur romp, then the next film can be about going into that particular tone and direction that many of us have wanted it to return to. I'm not saying it can't be done, only that it can be done just as badly as it can be done well.

I'm going to have to somewhat disagree with this. TLW had an overwhelming environmental science motif throughout the film. In fact, it's to the point where people call it out for being preachy. TLW did not abandon it's scientific roots, it simply took the Man Vs Nature motif from the latter half of the first film, and ran with it, making it the center focus of the second. It naturally progressed from the end of the first film and moved the science of the movies forward.
