Terminator:Genisys is in the top 10 movies of 2015

I’ve not seen it yet, but I understand that Terminator:Genisys recieved a less than favourable response when it was released in July. Despite a trilogy being confirmed, its future looked unlikely as it barey managed to scrape $89million in the U.S.

Surprisingly, the movie has been a box office hit internationally, in China it made $27.4 million on its opening day. It has now made a total of $440.2 million worldwide. Which now places it in the top 10 grossing films of 2015.

It sits above Mad Max: Fury Road ($374.7 million), Ant-Man ($401.4 million) and Kingsman: The Secret Service ($410.1 million).

The Terminator said he’d be back and, it looks like he will be. 

The rights revert back to James Cameron in 2019 so expect at least two sequels before then.

New names added to the Doctor Who festival

BBC Worldwide have announced some new names for the official Doctor Who Festival, which takes place this November in Excel. 

Mark Gatiss (The Unquiet Dead, Night Terrors), Sarah Dollard (Primeval, Doctor Who Series 9, Episode 10), Toby Whithouse (Being Human, Doctor Who-School reunion), Catherine Tregenna (Torchwood, Doctor Who-The Woman Who Lived), Jamie Mathieson (Flatline, Mummy on the Orient Express) and Peter Harness (Kill The Moon, Invasion of the Zygons).
Will join the previously announced Peter Capaldi (The Doctor), Michelle Gomez (Missy), Ingrid Oliver (Osgood) and current showrunner  Steven Moffat. (Still no mention of Jenna Coleman). 

BBC Worldwide have come under a lot of fire about the cost of the event, but honestly I think they’re making it worth your money. 

Along with the guests and photo opportunities, there will be theatre panels with the show’s stars. 
You’ll get to attend panels with all the series 9 writers, plus watch shows by real SFX and Millennium FX, and exclusive looks at three sets from Series 9. 

Big Finish will also have a large presence there,  you’ll get the chance to take part in Acting sessions run by Nick Briggs. You’ll also get the chance to see what it’s like to work behind the scenes in production village. 

This sounds like it’s shaping up to be a great event for any Doctor Who fan.

Steven Spielberg talks about Superheroes

Film legend Steven Spielberg has caused a bit of online outrage again, you may remember that a few years ago, he claimed that Hollywood was heading for an “implosion” due to ballooning budgets and recycled film ideas.

Now, he’s spoken out about the Superhero genre.

He said:

“I still feel that way. We were around when the Western died and there will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the Western. It doesn’t mean there won’t be another occasion where the Western comes back and the superhero movie someday returns. Of course, right now the superhero movie is alive and thriving. I’m only saying that these cycles have a finite time in popular culture. There will come a day when the mythological stories are

supplanted by some other genre that possibly some young filmmaker is just thinking about discovering for all of us.”

 

Twitter has been ablaze with people criticising the director and even taking stabs at his recent output.

The thing is, Spielberg IS right the superhero bubble will eventually burst, it may be another 20 years from now, but it will happen.

It wasn’t too long ago that a Superhero movie was box office poison that only changed in 1998 when Blade hit and showed there was life in Superhero genre.
