The Predator

Collider spoke to Shane Black for a full fifteen minutes about the recent reshoots in Vancouver.

Part of it was we were trying to jam a lot into a five-pound bag. So we had a big appetite. One of the things about that was if you want to do all of this stuff with this much money, you probably need to shoot during the day because during the night would be prohibitive. To our chagrin, and it’s one me, when we saw the footage during the day, the climax of the movie, *exasperated sigh*, it doesn’t look right. It doesn’t look scary in the daytime. Then we decided to streamline the plot so we could go back up and really concentrate on the scarier elements of doing it at night. So literally, as they’ve said, the difference is night and day. We took everything out of day and put it into darkness.

Meanwhile, Coming Soon has a thermal vision poster.

Elsewhere, a young Arthur Curry is bullied for “talkin’ to the FISH” on the latest motion poster. Jokes on them, ‘cos he grows up to look like Jason Momoa. Oh and like, be King of Atlantis, I guess.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Speaking at TCA, Fox TV’s Gary Newman says the show is still in the very early stages:

There’s actually no script to see. We’ve sat down with creators and had conversations with them about it. It’s a very exciting prospect. It’s fairly early. We haven’t pitched it to any possible licensees yet, all of that is still to come. We’re thrilled that Joss has engaged Monica who he worked with on one of his other series. She’s the person who is day to day on it. She has a great take on the show.

Kraven the Hunter

I will forego posting the requisite Ryan Reynolds “But Why?” gif from Harold&Kumar and simply state that I have a hard time seeing the demand/audience for a Kraven movie. He is not one of Spider-Man’s most renowned rogues. It is the equivalent of filming a, I don’t know, Hush movie (Batman rogue) or Mirror Master (Flash) movie. I Sony really trying to squeeze it character rights sponge to the point of ripping it apart?!
