‘Guardians,’ the Totally Nutso Russian Superhero Movie, Has a Trailer

By | Movie Trailers | No Comments

HustleTV Movie Trailer News…. It’s a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the grass is green, and Russia is capitalizing on American superhero blockbuster movies. Guardians, or Zaschitniki, features four Russian superheroes who were created during the Cold War to help defend their nation against supernatural foes. The film has been in the works for about a year, and now it has an official trailer. HustleTV

The trailer, dubbed in English, begins with the expository lines, “I have two weeks to search all of the former Soviet Union for the superhumans that can stop a supervillain?” “Exactly right.” We’re off to a great start! We are then introduced to our four heroes: a man who appears to have telekinetic power over rocks and also a chain whip, another guy who has two really big curved swords that he wears on his back, the Russian version of Sue Storm but with cool tattoos that maybe glow, and a dude who can transform into a bear that shoots machine guns. The four must band together to fight against a mysterious militia that the Russian army can’t handle, and the rest is mostly a medley of insane action set-pieces. HustleTV

The four heroes apparently represent the four different nationalities of the USSR, and their powers reflect where they come from. So I guess we can assume that some region of Russia is full of half-bear-half-man people. The film is directed by Sarik Andreasyan, who actually has an American credit with the 2014 film American Heist, which starred Hayden Christensen, Jordana Brewster, Adrien Brody, and Akon. Guardians will hit theaters February 23, 2017. HustleTV

Robert Downey Jr shares cryptic Avengers Infinity War poster suggesting MCU and MTVU merger

By | Featured | No Comments

 

HustleTV Entertainment News… Robert Downey Jr shared a rather confusing poster from the upcoming Avengers Infinity War movies raising hopes of a merger between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel TV Universe. The Hollywood actor took to his Facebook account to share a poster, which appeared on fan website Movie Pilot, three days ago.

He captioned the picture with just one word “excited”. The picture has sparked a debate over whether the superheroes from TV and Netflix series will appear in the upcoming Avengers sequel. The image has Part I and II as the movie titles, which is odd, considering directors Joe and Anthony Russo have already confirmed that the third and fourth movies will be titled differently as “the movies are two very different movies,” and Part I and Part II is simply “misleading”.

The Out Housers suspects that Downey has shared a fan-made poster, which he does quite often and there is no truth in the crossover between the MCU and the MTVU. HustleTV

“It was announced the other day that it wasn’t Infinity War part one and two anymore it was Infinity War and that the second is a connected but definitely distinctly different and as yet untitled Avengers sequel. So even the title on this is wrong right now. And they’ve long suggested crossovers from the TV universes to be unlikely,” one fan commented on the 51-year-old actor’s Facebook post.

“A lot are saying this is fan made. Real or fan made this would be a fantastic cast! Either way infinity war is going to be the biggest superhero event of the decade,” wrote another.

Back in December 2015, Anthony Russo denied any possibility of a crossover saying the idea is “complicated”.

“It’s complicated. When we start to serialize the telling of stories is difficult. You have to have a lot of control and focus on the course of history. The films are controlled by a group led by Kevin Feige, so they function as a unit. Other products, even if they are from Marvel, are controlled by others. Then there is the possibility of a crossover, but is more complicated. It is a smaller version of the problem that exists when thinking that Fox has the rights to certain characters, Sony and others,” Anthony told Super Interessante, a Portuguese language website.

The plot of the upcoming Avengers movie will focus on Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet. Josh Brolin, who plays the character of the Mad Titan, has already said that he was “blown away” by the script. “Basically, my character against everybody. And it’s really fun what they’ve chosen to do with the story,” he said in June. HustleTV

Sony calls on Ivan Reitman to resurrect a ‘Ghostbusters’ ‘toon for TV

By | Movie Trailers | No Comments

Sony Pictures Animation has announced its programming slate through 2018, including another Hotel Transylvania sequel, a faith-based theatrical ‘toon about a donkey at the first Christmas and a date for the emoji movie. HustleTV

But the biggest surprise from Monday’s release may be the forthcoming Ghostbustersanimated series, Ghostbusters: Ecto Force, billed as “further expand[ing]” the Ghostbustersuniverse. It will focus on a new generation of Ghostbusters in the year 2050 and is being “creatively spearheaded” by original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman’s production company Ghost Corps.

Sony did not disclose, however, whether the animated Ghostbusters would be all men, all women, or a coed team.

Ghostbusters: Ecto Force is not the first animated Ghostbusters show — The Real Ghostbusters aired in the late ’80s following the original films’ release, followed by Extreme Ghostbusters in 1997.

Other animated series Sony announced include Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and Hotel Transylvania: The Television Series. Both are planned for 2017 debuts.

On the film front, Sony shared plans for Smurfs: The Lost Villageas well as the animatedSpider-Man feature produced by dream duo Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie).

Other animated films include The Star, out Dec. 8, 2017 from director Timothy Reckart (Head Over Heels), which tells the tale of a donkey at the first Christmas. And it dated the long-rumored emoji movie, EmojiMovie: Express Yourself — which it called a surprising and comic take on the secret world” of the emojis on our phones — for August 2017.

Beverly Hills Cop 4: Eddie Murphy to Return; Set in Detroit

By | Featured | No Comments

In 1984, Eddie Murphy took a role which once almost belonged to Sylvester Stallone and turned it his own special brand of legendary action hero. Beverly Hills Cop rapidly became one of the most popular buddy/action/cop comedies of the decade, and was an apt follow-up (in kind, if not in name) to his breakout hit 48 Hours with Nick Nolte. Murphy’s Axel Foley combined street smarts, outlaw tactics, and detective savvy, while trigger-happy desk jockey Judge Reinhold played the perfect sidekick/foil.

The long-awaited fourth sequel, over twenty years in the making, was recently put on hold, in part due to Murphy’s lack of commitment to the project. Now, after sorting out some writing issues, it appears Beverly Hills Cop 4 has a new pair of directors and a classic location.

Deadline just dropped news that Paramount has signed a pair of Belgian directors for the fourth Axel Foley installment. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, known for their Romeo and Juliet-inspired update Black, have signed up to direct the project. The harsh but beautiful drama, about a teenage gangster girl who falls for a rival gang member hit, hard at the Toronto Film Festival last year, winning the Discovery Award. Arbi and Fallah are also, apparently, big fans of the original Beverly Hills CopHustleTV

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Eddie Murphy were reportedly very impressed with the Morrocan-Belgian helmers and their film. The directorial duo should bring a fresh perspective and youthful energy to the series. As a result of their work on BlackBruckheimer signed them on to work from Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec’s script for Beverly Hills Cop 4, which will bring the franchise full circle and return Axel Foley to his Detroit roots.

Little else has been revealed about the fourth Beverly Hills Cop film, aside from its return to the Motor City. Originally slated for release this year, the project lost its legs after Murphy’s waffling and concerns over perfecting the script. Now it sounds like the follow-up is back on track. One possible influence on the renewed momentum for the upcoming sequel could be the Beverly Hills Cop TV series Rejected by CBS a couple years back, the series might have kept the intellectual property bouncing around Hollywood. In it, Axel Foley would have been a decorated Police Chief, who passed the torch to his son. Since the project was rejected, Appelbaum/Nemec probably wanted to stick closer to the original formula. However, it’s possible they could delve into the father-son buddy cop realm (sort of like Indian Jones and the Crystal Skull did with adventure films).

Nonetheless, Murphy is no spring chicken. Depending upon Paramount’s intentions for the franchise – since it seems like everyone wants a shared universe these days – they may keep elements of heir-apparent angle the sitcom or decide to wrap up the popular series, with an eye on rebooting the franchise with a younger actor (let’s hope not). It will be interesting to see what develops in the coming days. No matter what happens, hopefully Beverly Hills Cop 4 is not just a return to Detroit, but also a return to form for Eddie Murphy’s quipping cop.

The Rare Use of ‘Strange Fruit’ in ‘The Birth of a Nation’

By | Movie Trailers | No Comments

The song is one of the most haunting in American history. “Strange Fruit,” recorded in 1939 by Billie Holiday, was written by New York poet-activist Abel Meeropolafter seeing a ­photograph of a 1930 lynching — “black body swinging in the Southern breeze,” he wrote. HustleTV 

“Strange Fruit,” which Time named as the song of the century in 1999, now is heard in the preview promoting the October release of the slave-revolt movie The Birth of a Nation, ­distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures. It is a rare example of a synchronization license for use of the song, says Miles Feinberg, executive vp at Music Sales Corp., which owns rights to the work.

“The importance of the song is certainly not lost on us,” says Feinberg. “It contributed to the civil rights movement, so we’ve been very ­protective of it.”

Feinberg reports that licensing requests for “Strange Fruit” have increased in recent years. His theory? “The song captures an anger and feeling of injustice that’s appearing in American culture right now,” he says. But Music Sales Corp. turns down most requests, he adds, saying that few match the prestige of the tune.

One opportunity, however, that captured the song’s spirit arose after director-actor Nate Parker premiered The Birth of a Nation at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Music ­supervisor Maura Duval Griffin solicited songs for its trailer, seeking music that was “dark and menacing, but with elevated lyrics about race struggles and history.” She referenced Kanye West‘s 2013 track “Blood on the Leaves,” which itself had sampled Nina Simone‘s 1965 version of “Strange Fruit.”

In fact, West’s request to license “Strange Fruit” was one of the few times that Music Sales Corp. approved sampling of the song. The ­publisher suggested use of Simone’s version for the film ­preview as well, since it is “a little bit darker and more menacing” than Holiday’s ­original, says Feinberg.

With few suitable licensing opportunities ­available for “Strange Fruit,” the song “is not a big money earner,” says Feinberg. “But it is an ­incredible one to have in your catalog.”

Portraying Nat Turner’s 1831 slave uprising, The Birth of a Nation is promoted by a preview featuring “Strange Fruit.” The iconic song was first recorded by Holiday (inset center) and written by Meeropol (left), with a 1965 version by Simone (right) used in the trailer.

More often, synch deals — the use of music in films and TV, as well as advertising and video games — drive significant revenue. The ­licensing of “Strange Fruit” is just one of the most notable recent examples of synch ­licensing, which is now a $202.9 million ­business in the United States, according to 2015 figures from global music trade ­organization IFPI. And the United States accounts for 57 ­percent of the $355 million generated by synch deals worldwide.

Music publishers don’t reveal terms of ­individual deals and synch fees can vary widely, based on factors including the popularity of the song, the medium in which the music will appear, the duration of the piece and the ­geographic scope of the deal. A copyright used in a trailer may earn $30,000 to $100,000, while an ad typically may earn $50,000 to $500,000.
