Sony Pictures Set To Develop A Live-Action ‘One Punch Man’ Movie

Published

on

According to Variety, Sony Pictures is ready to push forward with the inevitable anime revolution. Avi Arad and Ari Arad of Arad Productions will be producing a “One Punch Man” live-action film. Anime has had somewhat of a rocky start breaking into hollywood. Modern era manga films have either been met with divided acclaim or have been a pure failure from a box-office standpoint. Two examples would be, 2009’s ‘Dragonball: Evolution,’ and ‘Ghost in the Shell,’ which made its debut in 2017, starring Scarlett Johansson. Neither of which managed to garner a box-office draw.

Production companies tend to play it safe, and throw small budgets at theses films, yet anime fans have come to expect and anticipate a high level of action and special effects witnessed in the animated mangas, and generally are left slighted by their theatrical counterparts.

Interest in the genre has been sparked yet again, with the somewhat success and rapidly growing cult following of 2019’s, ‘Alita: Battle Angel,’ which grossed over $400mil at the box-office.

Insiders report, that Sony is very high on the film, [One Punch Man] due to the anime’s popularity. And are looking forward to adding another franchise to their pipeline.

“One Punch Man” was created in 2009 as a web comic by Japanese artist ONE. The comic quickly went viral in 2012. The series sold over 30 million copies and made its US debut in 2015. One Punch Man – Then made the New York Times manga bestsellers list and was nominated for an Eisner and a Harvey Award The anime has now spawned its own critically acclaimed animated tv show, video game and mobile games.

Venom and Jumanji writers, Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner will pen the script for Sony.

‘One Punch Man’ tells the story of Saitama, a hero that does it just for fun & can defeat his enemies with a single punch.

Tenet: What Is It And When Is It Out?

Published

on

What is TENET?

‘Tenet’ is the new film from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar) starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Kenneth Branagh. In terms of plot, very little is known about ‘Tenet’ but the plot synopsis reads as follows: “Armed with only one word — Tenet — and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.” Given that it’s Christopher Nolan, we know to expect something strange to do with time or non-linear storytelling but we just don’t quite know what…yet. Boasting a budget rumored to be over $200 million, ‘Tenet’ was filmed in seven countries around the world and includes some extraordinary action set pieces, including crashing a real 747 plane into a building (with no CGI)! It certainly promises to be a thrill ride that you don’t want to miss in cinemas.

When is Tenet out?

‘Tenet’ is scheduled to come out on July 17 but given COVID-19, many fans have been wondering if it will sadly get delayed. According to the film’s social accounts, it is still scheduled for July 17 but what’s interesting is that on the new trailer that dropped on May 22, rather than putting the film’s release date at the end, the trailer ended with the words “Coming to Theaters” which implies that the July 17 date isn’t firmly set in stone. It seems that Warner Bros. are aiming for July 17 but if cinemas aren’t open yet in big cities such as Los Angeles or New York, they may have to delay it to later on in the summer. But the film will definitely be released in cinemas as that’s something Christopher Nolan is very keen on. It certainly won’t be released on streaming and you will have to go to a cinema if you want to see it, it just depends on if that’s in the middle of July or later on in the summer once cinemas reopen.

Why is this film so important?

TENET is such an important film as it will be one of the first films to be released theatrically for months. The only film scheduled for release before Tenet is ‘Unhinged’ starring Russell Crowe, due to be released on July 1, but that seems a bit optimistic. Other than ‘Unhinged,’ ‘Tenet’ will be the first film shown in cinemas once they re-open and if ‘Tenet’ is a success and people return to cinemas, other summer blockbusters such asMulan’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984 can be released. 

Will you be going to see Tenet in cinemas on July 17?

Published

on

As the internet catches its collective breath, after hearing official news that ‘Zack Snyder’s: Justice League’ is coming to HBO Max in 2021. Fans can now start to anticipate tidbits as to what we can expect from this new interpretation of Justice League.

Snyder, has started assuring fans, that his film isn’t just a standard “Directors cut,” but will in fact be an almost entirely different movie. Warner Bros. and HBO Max are shelling out an estimated $20-30 mill that will help extend cast member contracts and insure we see an entirely different version. Snyder recently spoke to Hollywood Reporter and shed some light on the project:

“You probably saw one-fourth of what I did,”

Snyder, went on to further separate his vision from what Joss Whedon brought to the screen:

“It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie,”

Snyder recently took to social media, to drop a new official image of Uxas aka Darkseid.
