'Gemini Man' is pacing to be a huge box-office flop this weekend and lose its studio millions

‘Masters of the Universe’ Reboot Might Go Straight to Netflix

Sony has been developing its Masters of the Universe reboot since 2007, hoping to launch a new blockbuster franchise. But now the studio is considering avoiding a potential box office flop by dumping the movie right on Netflix. While Sony still has a stake in Spider-Man, its non-Spidey franchises haven’t done so well. Case in point: this year’s Men In Black: International was panned by critics and flopped at the box office. While nothing is official yet, a new report reveals Sony is considering...

CGI Will Smith Has More Life in Him Than Gemini Man

Will Smith is a huge movie star in part because of his infectious charisma. He’s a great actor, too, but it was his charm and personality that aided him in becoming one of the biggest stars on the planet.

‘A Christmas Carol’ Musical With Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell is Headed to Apple

Unlike Ebeneezer Scrooge before his ghost-inspired transformation, Apple isn’t afraid to spend tons of money. The company has won a bidding war for a new take on A Christmas Carol from Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell. Netflix, Warner Bros., and Paramount were all vying for the movie, but it was Apple who emerged the victor, agreeing to large chunks of change for Reynolds and Ferrell, ensuring that they’ll both have happy holidays.

'Gemini Man' starring Will Smith is an astounding technical achievement with a truly terrible story

"Gemini Man," starring Will Smith as a hitman on the run from his younger self, has a story that comes nowhere close its technical achievement. Director Ang Lee shot the movie at 120 frames per second, which delivers the sharpest picture I've ever seen in a movie theater. But the story is dull and unoriginal. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.   The most frustrating thing about watching "Gemini Man" (in theaters Friday) is all the pieces are there for it to be a special fil...

8 movie franchises that tried to copy Marvel's cinematic universe strategy — and how they fared at the box office

The Marvel Cinematic Universe kickstarted a trend and changed the way studios think about blockbuster filmmaking. But similar franchises haven't been able to replicate its success. Some have course corrected, such as Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe, which is now focusing more on standalone stories. Others were dead on arrival, like Universal's Dark Universe, which flopped right out of the gate with 2017's "The Mummy." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When "Iron Man" hit ...

The wait to see what happens in A Quiet Place 2 just got a little bit shorter.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie is getting delayed to redesign the title character

To say that reaction to the first Sonic the Hedgehog trailer was mixed would be overly diplomatic. But at least fans were able to look beyond the thin premise and bizarre Jim Carrey turn for long enough to focus on what was really important: the weird ass Sonic design. The latest in an increasingly frequent number of wins for internet commenters, director Jeff Fowler balked earlier this month, telling Twitter, “you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen.” Looks lik...

Sarah Connor returns in the teaser trailer for ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’

Oh boy, there’s another Terminator movie on its way. I haven’t watched any of the franchise’s big-screen installments since “Terminator 2” — not “Rise of the Machines,” “Salvation” or the hilariously-named “Genisys.” But I remember the hype cycle around the latter films, with the excitement that maybe this time we’d see a return to the spirit and quality of the first two movies inevitably giving way to disappointment when it didn’t happen. To be honest, this teaser trailer for “Dark Fate” doe...
