Two M. Night Shyamalan Movies Set For Release In 2021 & 2023 At Universal

Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan has set up two new original thrillers at Universal Pictures that will be released in theaters on February 26, 2021, and February 17, 2023, the studio has announced.

Universal Pictures president Peter Cramer said: “M. Night Shyamalan continues to create exciting, highly original stories that keep global audiences on the edge of their seats. There is no one like him: he is a master filmmaker working at the height of his powers, and we are honored that he has once again chosen Universal to be the home for his next two incredible projects.”

Shyamalan and Universal previously collaborated on Glass, Split, and The Visit. It is not yet known which films Shyamlan’s upcoming projects will open up against in theaters on those release dates.

“There are wonderful studios out there, but Universal has made it a mandate to release original films. They are the best at finding an audience for new stories with unexpected tones. I believe original films are crucial to the longevity of the theatrical experience,” said Shyamalan.

Shyamalan’s high-concept content has consistently captured the attention of audiences around the world for nearly two decades, having amassed more than $3.3 billion worldwide. His most recent Universal project, Glass, the culmination of his Eastrail 177 Trilogy, garnered nearly $250 million worldwide and opened No. 1 at the box office, remaining in the top spot for three weeks. Split, the second film in the epic series, also debuted at No. 1 and remained there for three weeks in a row during its 2017 release, while 2015’s The Visit brought in close to $100 million at the worldwide box office and was one of the highest-grossing horror films of the year. Having independently financed the three films with a combined production budget of $35 million, Glass, Split and The Visit went on to cumulatively gross more than $600 million worldwide. He will similarly finance his next two films.

Shyamalan is awaiting release on Servant, a new 10-episode, half-hour psychological thriller series that will debut on AppleTV+. In addition to executive producing the series, Shyamalan directed two episodes, including the pilot.

The Jurassic World franchise just got its next chapter! Following its premiere on FX last night, you can watch the new Jurassic World short film, Battle At Big Rock.

The story follows a family of four whose encounter with these wild animals becomes a terrifying fight for survival. Colin Trevorrow directed the shortwhich stars André Holland (Moonlight), Natalie Martinez (End of Watch), Melody Hurd (Fatherhood), and Pierson Salvador (NOS4A2).

The short film was co-written by Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim Uprising, The Black Hole), with music by Amie Doherty and Larry Fong serving as the cinematographer.

Jurassic World 3 will be directed and co-written by Carmichael and Trevorrow, who is returning to executive produce the project alongside Steven Spielberg. In June, star Bryce Dallas Howard hinted that the original stars from the first film, Jurassic Park, could be making a return in the next installment of the epic franchise. The rumor has not yet been confirmed, but Jeff Goldblum’s cameo in Fallen Kingdom could easily open the door for his character, Dr. Ian Malcolm, to return once more alongside Sam Neill and Laura Dern.

Hobbs & Shaw Available On Digital 10/15 & Blu-ray On 11/5

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, available on Digital on October 15, 2019, as well as on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on November 5, 2019, amps up the high-stakes action and sharp-edged humor like never before, taking fans down an exhilarating new road. Unforgettable franchise favorites Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson; “Skyscraper,” “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham; “The Meg,” “Spy”) forge an unlikely partnership that provides fresh insight into their backstories. Johnson and Statham’s “sheer movie star charisma” (Scott Mendelson, Forbes) take the action, spectacle, thrills and humor to a new level and have already earned the film more than $680 million at the global box office.

Hobbs & Shaw features over 80 minutes of never-before-seen bonus content including an alternate opening, deleted and extended scenes and several featurettes with the filmmakers and cast that take fans further into the thrilling story. A hit with audiences, Hobbs & Shaw earned an “A-” CinemaScore and is “the most exciting movie of the year” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV), with non-stop action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.

For years, hulking lawman Luke Hobbs and lawless outcast Deckard Shaw have traded smack talk and body blows. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton Lorr (Idris Elba; “Thor: Ragnarok,” “The Dark Tower”) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever, Hobbs and Shaw must partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves. Joining the cast as Shaw’s sister Hattie, Vanessa Kirby (Mission: Impossible-Fallout, “The Crown”) “is convincing as a woman who can take care of herself” (Rafer Guzman, Newsday). Directed by David Leitch from a story by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan and a screenplay by Morgan and Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Iron Man 3), Hobbs & Shaw is produced by Johnson, Statham, Morgan and Hiram Garcia (Skyscraper, Rampage).

Coco Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl will transform the legendary venue into the Land of the Dead with special pre-show activities. Day of the Dead costumes are encouraged.

Mousetrappe, the award-winning immersive design agency and media studio, returns to create state-of-the-art digital projection imagery on the shell of the iconic Hollywood Bowl.  Earlier this year, Mousetrappe also created imagery for Disney’s The Little Mermaid Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl.

Felipe Fernandez del Paso serves as director of Coco Live in Concert.  Fernandez del Paso has directed theater and film, and is also a production designer, set designer and writer.  He received an Oscar nomination for Best Production Design for the 2003 film, Frida.   

Amy Tinkham is Creative Consulant for Coco Live in Concert.  Most recently she served as Creative Director for Aerosmith’s “Deuces are Wild” Las Vegas residency and James Taylor’s Caesars Palace residency.  She also directs the Dancing with the Stars and America’s Got Talent Live tours.  She is currently working with Franco Dragone on a new show in China.

The Art of Designing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

For years, the cinematic wonder of the Star Wars galaxy has captured imaginations, transporting viewers off this rock and hurtling into adventure through hyperspace. It’s a universe unlike any other, filled with planets and creatures that are at once completely alien and somehow totally familiar.

But to make the galaxy out of brick and mortar inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, where fans could step onto the dusty surface of a real Star Wars planet for the first time, artists and designers couldn’t entirely rely on the same movie magic that brings those worlds to life on screen. The project is the culmination of Lucasfilm VP and Executive Creative Director Doug Chiang’s lifelong love of the saga and individual artistic expertise. “Of all the Star Wars experiences, whether it’s a video game or a film or a themed attraction, this is one of the most challenging and the most fulfilling for me,” he says. “It reminds me of when I first saw Star Wars when I was 15. When I saw it in the cinema, it was amazing. But I really wanted to go there and visit that place. And now we can.”

 

The truth is, from the beginning, Star Wars storytelling has been grounded in reality, an attribute that helped the design team for the new themed-land now open at Disneyland® Resort and opening August 29 at Walt Disney World® Resort. “We try to give it that layer of reality, that history,” Chiang adds. “Who has been living here? What have they done here?” 

“It really just looks so realistic,” says Kirstin Makela, Walt Disney Imagineering’s art director on the project. “We want our guests to feel like they’re in a new environment that also feels familiar to the world of Star Wars, but gives them a sense of adventure that they can actually make this world their own.”

However, making something feel real in a movie and making something realistic that holds up to the naked eye and all five senses are two very different things.

Watch The Doctor Sleep Final Trailer

Warner Bros. Pictures just released the final trailer for Doctor Sleep.

The film continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining.  Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.

Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace.  But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.”  Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.

Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose.  Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.

Doctor Sleep will be released on November 8, 2019.
