Legendary Pictures

  1. Guillermo del Toro Hasn’t Given Up On At the Mountains of Madness, May Try a PG-13 Version

    Quit playin' games with my heart.

    If there's one film project that will make sci-fi nerds collapse to the floor and start twitching... it's The Phantom Menace. But if there are two, the second is Guillermo del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness, an H.P. Lovecraft passion project that got the kibosh after years of work on del Toro's part because it turns out Universal didn't want to risk spending hundreds of millions of dollars on an R-rated horror movie. But hope isn't dead yet.

  2. Legendary Pictures CEO Says Pacific Rim 2 Could Happen, But They’re Not Rushing It

    Meanwhile...

    Perhaps this is just me, but it's refreshing to hear someone in Hollywood say they're not going to make a sequel just for the sake of making a sequel. As we've reported previously, Guillermo del Toro has been working on the screenplay for Pacific Rim 2, and Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull has said the studio's open to it. This week, in an interview with I Am Rogue, Tull further addressed the sequel rumors, explaining that if they give the movie the greenlight, they're going to take their time and get it right.

  4. Legendary Pictures Turned Down a Movie Because Its Main Character Is a Female Action Hero

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    You probably haven't heard of Legend of the Red Reaper. The passion product of Tara Cardinal, who also stars, it's about a Reaper, or guardian of humanity, who goes on a quest for vengeance against those who betrayed her kind. It's the sort of high-fantasy action story that's gotten more popular since Game of Thrones hit it big. But you probably won't be seeing it in a theater, since Legendary Pictures passed on it. Why? They don't think people want to see action movies with female leads. Because Sucker Punch failed. Yeah.

  5. Pacific Rim #1 at International Box Office, Apocalypse Cancelled Worldwide

    Kaiju groupies unite!

    To put it bluntly, this summer has not been a good season for American blockbusters internationally. Even Iron Man 3, which added special scenes with Chinese pop stars to appeal to the audience, tanked as heavy as its army of metal suits. Frustratingly, Americans flocked to the critically panned Grown Ups 2 rather than the awesome Pacific Rim, which ended up being the king of the international box office this past weekend, grossing $35.3 million. I don't think you don't have to sync your mind with a kaiju to figure out why.

  6. Development of New Godzilla an Unnecessary Mess of Petty Disputes and Rewrites

    Did you just feel the ground shake violently beneath your feet? Hear that deafening roar from off in the distance? As much as we wish we could say it's Godzilla, those tremors and bellowing are actually coming from an even more monstrous abomination: Legendary Pictures. Production for the highly anticipated return of everyone's favorite king of kaiju hasn't even started and already the studio is being stymied by one self-imposed speed bump after another. From the studio playing a tedious game of musical chairs with film writers to petty internal disputes, we'd be fortunate to even get 5 minutes of leaked grainy Godzilla footage uploaded to YouTube at the rate things are currently going -- which is assuming that everybody at Legendary Pictures can wrap their heads around a grown-up word called compromise.

  7. Mass Effect Movie? Massively Great News

    Legendary Pictures is really justfying its name. With Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Watchmen, and The Hangover under its belt and Inception (giddy dance) coming in July, what could the studio possibly do in the future to make itself even more awesome. This. Legendary has obtained the rights to none other than Mass Effect, BioWare's wildly successful, crazy-awesome franchise surrounding Commander Shepard's exploits vanquishing evil aliens and protecting the universe.

  8. Godzilla Set to Wreak Havoc Once More in New Movie

    Godzilla is officially ready to destroy the 21st century. As first reported in August 2009 by Bloody Disgusting, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have finally struck a deal to release a full-force, CGI/special effects-laden Godzilla reboot. Says Legendary CEO Thomas Tull:
    "Godzilla is one of the world's most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise. Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has."
