FreddyKrueger80s-970x545I had a feeling that when they announced that Friday The 13TH was getting a reboot once again and that they were going to ignore the 2009 version, that A Nightmare On Elm Street was not too far away. While I wasn’t a huge fan of the 2010 version that saw Jackie Earle Haley (The Bad News Bears) play Freddy, I didn’t hate it either. They made Freddy Krueger super creepy in the 2010 remake and it was actually a step in the right direction. According to some of my sources, David Leslie Johnson, the man who wrote Orphan, is getting ready to pen the script for the new version that will once again see the cultural icon ht the big screen once again. There’s no word yet on who will take over for Freddy this time, but I would love to see Robert Englund don the make up once again. Nobody deserves to wear it, but him in my opinion.

ffI want to go out on a limb and say that i didn’t think that Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four was completely terrible, but the film has just bombed at the box office and the blame game has commenced. While it is the worst grossing Marvel film at the box office in recent history clocking in at 34.1 million over 43 International markets in it’s opening weekend. Josh Trank recently took to Twitter claiming that his final version of the film would have done better than the version the studio released, but he has since deleted those tweets. Of course, the studio denies any wrong doing and claims they fully support their filmmakers, but this could be a sign. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film received the worst grade any superhero film has ever received with a C- and according to Yahoo.com, “Audiences have rarely given superhero movies variations of a C grade, even those that have failed at the box office. The Green Hornet, flopping in 2011 with a $33.5 million debut, received a B+ CinemaScore, while duds Elektra, Catwoman and Daredevil earned a B. Exceptions include Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance (C+),Batman and Robin (C+) and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace ©.” It’s time for 20TH Century Fox to do the same thing that Sony did and that is strike up a deal with Marvel and Disney so that we can get the Silver Surfer in the Infinity War films because he is an integral part of that after all.
