Avengers: Infinity War on Pace to Make Infinity Dollars in Ticket Pre-Sales - Movie Talk
Apr 12, 2018
Infinity War has massive pre-sales, Netflix pulls out of Cannes, and Donnie Yen joins Mulan. On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (Thursday, April 12th, 2018) Mark Ellis, Ti, and Damien Smith discuss the following: 1) ’Avengers: Infinity War’ on Pace to Make Infinity Dollars in Ticket Pre-Sales 2) Netflix Officially Pulls Out of Cannes Film Festival over Rule Change 3) Donnie Yen Cast as Commander Tung in Live-Action ’Mulan’ 4) Alex Garland to Write Haunted House Movie ‘The Toymaker’s Secret’ 5) The Rock Hands Out Some Tough Advice in the First ‘Fighting with My Family’ Clip 6) Charlize Theron Confirms ’Atomic Blonde 2’ Is In Development 6) Live Twitter Questions According to pre-sale tickets from Fandango, Avengers Infinity War is already selling twice as many tickets ahead of its release as Black Panther did during the same time frame - but what’s even more insane that Avengers: Infinity War pre-sale tickets are already more than the last seven MCU films combined. The battle between Netflix and the Cannes Film Festival just hit a major crossroads. Last week, Netflix threatened to pull its moves from the lineup since Cannes’ new rule stated that in order to play in competition at Cannes, a film has to have an exclusive theatrical window. Now in an interview with Variety, Netflix is making it official—they’re backing out of Cannes. According to Variety, TriStar Pictures has landed the rights to The Toymaker’s Secret, a spec script from Annihilation and Ex Machina scribe Alex Garland. Unlike those two movies, however, Garland is only writing this movie, while Paloma Baeza (Garland’s wife) will direct. The movie tells the story of an American family who moves into an old Victorian house in London and begins to believe it might be haunted. The first trailer/clip has been released for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s family focused film, Fighting with My Family. The film, written and directed by Stephen Merchant, follows a former wrestler and his family as they perform at small-time venues to make ends meet while his kids dream of joining the WWE. Charlize Theron was recently speaking to the audience at the San Francisco International Film Festival (via a report from IndieWire) where she confirmed a sequel to Atomic Blonde is in the works. No other details were offered beyond her statement that essentially said: “We’re working on a sequel.” LIVE TWITTER QUESTIONS Follow us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/ColliderVideo Follow us on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/ColliderVideo Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/colliderdotcom Follow Mark: https://twitter.com/MarkEllisLive Follow Ti: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN0Ms3VmhcLlNVMk41zBOIw Follow Damien: https://twitter.com/DamienDSmith As the online source for movies, television, breaking news, incisive content, and imminent trends, Collider is more than an essential destination.
