October 23, 2020  Abby Comments are off Bride

denofgeek.com – Universal Pictures’ dubious attempt to remake Bride of Frankenstein as part of the “Dark Universe” might be dead, but the concept of reimagining the idea of a reanimated “Bride” in the 21st century leads on—with Scarlett Johansson as the lead, no less. The news came late Thursday when A24 and Apple TV+ announced Johansson would star in The Bride, a modern reworking of one of the most potent ideas in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel.

The new film, which will be directed by Sebastián Lelo, reimagines the story of the Bride’s creation as less the attempt to build a “Monster’s Mate”—as she is credited in the 1935 Bride of Frankenstein movie—and more a parable about a woman finding a sense of self-realization in the modern world. It’s so modern in fact that her creator will be a wealthy tech CEO who has fastened a lady out of raw materials exclusively for himself. The logline reads as follows:

“A woman created to be an ideal wife—the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur—rejects her creator, and is forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. It is on the run that she finds her true identity, her surprising power, and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.”

The project is obviously a major endeavor for Johansson, who is producing the film alongside Jonathan Lia through their These Pictures banner. She also said in a statement, “It is long overdue for Bride to step out of the shadow of her male counterpart and stand alone… I am extremely excited to emancipate the classic anti-heroine and reanimate her story to reflect the change we see today.”

Johansson is of course hardly the first to try and breathe life into the concept. While the title “Bride of Frankenstein” is copyrighted by Universal Pictures, the concept of a female creature was a strong focal point in the narrative of Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel. In the book, Victor Frankenstein is pressured under threat of death by his Creature to make a female bride for the new species of reanimated corpses. Victor ultimately refuses at the eleventh hour, but the idea was so potent James Whale unpacked it fully in his 1935 masterpiece wherein Frankenstein (Colin Clive) creates a woman for Boris Karloff’s legendary monster.

Things of course do not go as planned, and Elsa Lanchester’s iconic turn as the Monster lasts about five minutes before she rejects Karloff’s lovelorn Monster, and he in turn condemns them both to a fiery death. Still, the idea of a Bride has lingered in pop culture, with Kenneth Branagh trying to insert her creation into his fascinating failure of an adaptation, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994). The Bride has also starred in her own film before, though not one any person has reason to remember, with Jennifer Beals playing the title role in The Bride (1985). It’s a misbegotten ‘80s attempt at Gothic horror; so ‘80s, in fact, it cast Sting as Dr. Frankenstein!

Perhaps the most notable attempt at making the Bride her own woman was when Billie Piper played a subversive version of the character in Showtime’s underrated Penny Dreadful series. Be that as it may, there’s a lot of room to expand here and offer a version as compelling as Lanchester’s brief 1935 appearance. At least judging by the logline, Johansson and Lelio are attempting to forgo the male Monster altogether, in which case this allows them to be an even looser (and more liberated) take on the Frankenstein myth. Indeed, one might wonder if the concept sounds like it is building on the final fleeting minutes of Alex Garland’s Ex Machina (2015), which concluded with an android killing her tech CEO inventor and striking out into the world.

Not that we’d mind, as Ex Machina is one of the finest science fiction movies of the last 20 years, and a pretty crafty retelling of the Frankenstein passion play. A24 also just so happened to release that film, just as they will be producing Bride alongside Apple TV+, who will premiere the film. A24 and Apple TV+’s first collaboration premieres on the streaming service later this week, with a delightful reunion of Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola in On the Rocks.

Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo will write Bride, following up their work on scripting Blumhouse’s upcoming The Wolfman remake, which will star Ryan Gosling.

variety.com – The Avengers are the latest group in Hollywood to support democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden by hosting a virtual fundraiser.

“Voters Assemble!” will feature “Avengers” cast members Don Cheadle, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana. They will join vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris and “Avengers: Infinity War” directors The Russo Brothers for a Q&A and trivia.

The fundraiser will take place on Oct. 20 at 6:45 p.m. ET. Fans are able to donate any amount of money to the Joe Biden Victory Fund to attend.

Ruffalo, who plays Hulk in the “Avengers” universe, has been especially vocal about his support for Biden on social media, using his platform to encourage others to vote. In one Instagram post, Ruffalo sported a mask that said “VOTE” with the caption: “We must elect champions who will fight for the Green New Deal and push Congress to pass climate action that matches the scale of the problem with the urgency our country’s future demands.”

Cheadle, who portrays War Machine, has also used his social media to spread awareness about climate change and voting rights, especially encouraging everyone in his home state of Missouri to get out and vote in the upcoming election.

This marks the latest of star-studded fundraisers supporting Biden. The cast of hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” took part in a town hall on Oct. 16 and Biden’s campaign also hosted a South Asian Block Party on Zoom Oct. 14 with Mindy Kaling, Kumail Nanjiani, Lilly Singh and more in attendance.

Scarlett has put her voice to good use again supporting the Oklahomans for Sentencing Reform and the Question 805 reform that would end the practice of adding years to a person’s prison sentence for a nonviolent crime because they had a prior nonviolent conviction. Under SQ 805, people who are convicted of nonviolent crimes could be sentenced up to the maximum allowable time in prison for their crime, but would not receive additional time in prison because of their past. SQ 805 applies only to people with nonviolent offenses.

Well this year keeps getting more and more crap with each day but with all that is going on in the world Marvel made the call to push Black Widow from the November date to May next year, And I am pissed about it but the good news part is we should get a press tour and all that I hope.

theverge – In a predictable fashion, Disney is delaying Black Widow to 2021 as the company continues to navigate the current theatrical landscape during the COVID-19 pandemic. This marks the first time since 2009 that a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie hasn’t been released in a calendar year.

Black Widow will now open on May 7th, 2021 — more than one year after it was originally scheduled to be released. Like with other Marvel delays, Black Widow’s new date pushes Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings back from its May 7th, 2021 release date to July 9th, 2021. The Eternals, which was supposed to follow Black Widow is moving from February 12th, 2021 to November 5th, 2021. A number of other Disney films, including West Side Story and The King’s Man, were also moved around as part of the shuffle.

Black Widow follows in Wonder Woman 1984’s footsteps, which Warner Bros. delayed to December 25th from an October 2nd release date in hopes that more theaters would be open and audiences more likely to go. The delays come after Tenet’s lukewarm debut in the US, where it opened to just $20 million earlier this month, largely because theaters in major cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City remain closed.

Warner Bros. sees Tenet’s success as a “long-game,” meaning executives want to wait several weeks before judging the movie’s performance instead of relying on the first few weekends. Still, it’s hard to ignore that an expensive blockbuster film may not achieve the financial success many movie studios need right now. That doesn’t bode well for other studios, especially huge moneymakers like Disney with high budgets and marketing spend.

The House of Mouse has explored a few different options. While movies like Hamilton and Artemis Fowl went to Disney Plus as regular streaming exclusives, Disney also built a new “Premier Access” digital purchase shelf within Disney Plus for Mulan. Disney Plus subscribers could pay an additional $30 to buy Mulan — a $200 million blockbuster originally destined for theaters — on top of their $7 monthly Disney Plus subscription fee to watch the movie. Or they could wait until December 4th when Mulan would become “free” to all Disney Plus subscribers.

It’s unclear just how well Mulan performed, but Disney’s chief financial officer, Christine McCarthy, told a group gathered at the Bank of America Virtual 2020 Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference last week that the company is “very pleased” with what it’s seeing. Still, McCarthy and the Disney team are committed to theatrical releases, especially heading into 2021.

“We’ve got a pretty robust slate through 2021,” McCarthy said, as reported by Deadline. “We hope theaters are open, and we hope our films are films that for the people who choose to go to movie theaters, the experience of going to a theater is very different from what you would have at home.”

That makes sense! Disney made $13 billion at the box office in 2019 (thanks in part to Avengers: Endgame). Disney is one of the few studios that can drive people to theaters, and it seemingly has no plans to release all of its $200 million blockbusters on Disney Plus as a Premier Access exclusive — especially if Mulan underperformed. Until consumers are ready to go back to theaters en masse, Disney is going to have to figure out which of its films it wants to save for theatrical releases in 2021 and which ones can go directly to streaming.

“In general, if you look at that research, you’ll generally see that older people are less likely,” McCarthy said, talking about who is more likely to go back to theaters. “Probably younger people — the same people who are doing things we see on the news shows that they probably shouldn’t be doing, and crowding and partying — they’re probably more likely to go to a theater. But would a family with young kids go? Probably not.”

And more Black Widow news is coming out at last with one more magazine. Scarlett and her co-star Florence Pugh are in the new Total Film – October 2020 with a new interview, and movie stills. The cover and one movie still have been added to the galley and look out for the Digital scans from the issue when the magazine comes out on Firday.

Total Film – Yes, it’s been a while since we last had a Marvel movie. More than a year ago, Avengers: Endgame wrapped up the third phase of the Cinematic Universe and became the highest-grossing film of all time in the process.

But, the wait is nearly over, and for the first film in Phase 4, Marvel will be jumping back in time (a little) to delve into the backstory of one of its best-loved characters, Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow.

Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Black Widow’s solo movie sees her reuniting with her Russian ‘family’, Yelena (Florence Pugh), Melina (Rachel Weisz) and Alexei (David Harbour), who’s Russia’s answer to Captain America (known by the superhero name Red Guardian).

Also in the mix is mystery villain Taskmaster, a masked baddie who can imitate his opponents’ fighting styles, and who has connections to the Red Room of Natasha’s past.

Above, you can see an exclusive new image of Johansson and Pugh in Black Widow, taken from the upcoming issue of our sister publication, Total Film magazine. You can see two more exclusive images – featuring Taskmaster and Yelena in action, below.

The decision to make Black Widow a family drama came from Marvel producer Kevin Feige. “[That decision] was puzzling to me,” director Cate Shortland tells Total Film. “And then I realised, by the end, that Kevin and I had similar visions. What I really wanted to do was to expose the character and get under her skin. The family created the dynamic with which that would happen. We see a different side of the character, because she’s in scenes with people that know her from when she was a child. She’s not a superhero in those scenes; she’s a daughter or a sister.”

For more – including interviews with Johansson, Pugh, Weisz, Harbour and Shortland – pick up a copy of the new issue of Total Film magazine, when it hits shelves on this Friday, September 18. Black Widow is scheduled to open in the UK on October 28, and in the US on November 6.

Scarlett was one of the people who appeared on the comedy special Vomo – Vote Or Miss Out on Monday night. The point was to urging people to rock the vote in the presidential election in November and Scarlett had a little funny part on it. The bad news is I have yet to find a download of this so I can cap it for the site but you can watch the video below from Scarletts part.

Digital Spy

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame were filmed back-to-back, that’s common knowledge. It does make us wonder how much of what happens in the second film was kept secret from the actors while they were filming the first one, either because the directors don’t want the knowledge of what’s to come to potentially affect the performances, or because they know a few (*cough* Holland *cough* Ruffalo) of them can’t keep a spoiler secret.

Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson has confirmed that she was made aware of her character’s ultimate fate before filming the first part, although she cheekily never stated how many other actors knew about it at the same time.

Speaking to Empire magazine, the star said: “It was before shooting Infinity War that I was made aware of what was going to happen in Endgame.

“Kevin (Feige) called me and said, ‘Look, obviously we’re at a place where there’s going to be big sacrifices and big losses’. We had all anticipated that. So it didn’t seem out of character. It kind of made sense to me, I guess, even though I was sad about it.

“But after I hung up the phone I remember I thought, ‘Okay, I guess it’s me’. And it took me a minute to process it. It was bittersweet, but it was not a shock.”

Of course, being killed off didn’t mean the end for Black Widow, as ScarJo is reprising the role for one last time in her own solo movie, one set before the events of Endgame. It was meant to be out by now, but delayed because of… you know what.

There are tons of rumours that it will come to Disney+ first, like Mulan is, but the House of Mouse are adamant that it won’t.
