film contract


First look of the original DC animated film ‘Teen Titans: Judas Contract,’ which will feature popular villain Deathstroke.

Christina Ricci and Miguel Ferrer are voice-starring in Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, the long-awaited DC Universe animated original movie from Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

The movie, being directed by Sam Liu (Justice League vs. Teen Titans) from a screenplay by Ernie Altbacker, adapts the classic storyline from Tales of the Teen Titans, one of DC’s top comics in the 1980s. Ricci will play Teen Titans member Terra and Ferrer is voicing the mercenary villain Deathstroke.

Ricci and Ferrer are newcomers to the stable of the DC animated movies, a line that celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Titans will also see returning DC players Sean Maher, Kari Wahlgren, Jake T. Austin, Taissa Farmiga, Brandon Soo Hoo and Stuart Allan join the voice cast.

Teen Titans was DC’s comic that went head-to-head with Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men in the early 1980s in a time when both comics were outselling their companies’ more established stars such as Batman and Spider-Man, respectively. Titans, under writer Marv Wolfman and penciller George Perez, hit a zenith with The Judas Contract storyline. It was the culmination of years of stories that saw the Titans — young heroes Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, Nightwing/Robin and Cyborg — face the betrayal of their teammate Terra.The woman had partnered with Deathstroke to take down the team.


March 5, 1936: The candid camera catches the real life emotions of James Cagney as he testifies today in his court fight to have his film contract abrogated.  He is suing Warner Brothers to break his contract, claiming an oral agreement providing that he make only four films a year was violated. ‘They wanted to withhold $1250 per week of my salary to insure my being a so-called 'good boy.’ That was unsatisfactory to me,’ the star testified. Cagney testified that when he was having a row about his salary, Jack L. Warner, studio vice president, 'said he didn’t like me and couldn’t understand why Darryl Zanuck (former Warner Bros. executive) wanted a mug like me around the place.’

Teaser for the upcoming Judas Contract animated film, although I don’t know as of yet whether it’s a stand alone (like the New Frontier and Killing Joke adaptations) or intrigated into the DC Animated Movie Universe like the Batman vs Robin and the like.

Although considering how Justice League vs the Teen Titans ended with an appearance by the Judas Contract’s villain Terra, so I guess it’s a version of the story with Damian Wayne in it or something.

all i ask is for someone, preferably a child, preferably a girl with a prosthetic, at some point in any of the remaining films Sebastian is contracted for with Marvel, to call Bucky a hero, i just need for him to hear that he’s someone’s hero


On this day in music history: November 28, 1987 - “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life” by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 1 week, also topping the Adult Contemporary chart for 4 weeks on November 21, 1987. Written by Franke Previte, John DeNicola and Donald Markowitz, it is the biggest hit single from the film and soundtrack “Dirty Dancing”. Previte, a member of the New Jersey based pop/rock band Franke & The Knockouts, is approached by Jimmy Ienner, the bands’ former label boss at Millennium Records and the soundtrack supervisor for “Dirty Dancing” to write some music for the film. Without a record contract at the time, Previte at first turns him down, but Ienner persists and finally he agrees. It is selected for the films’ finale by choreographer Kenny Ortega and Miranda Garrison, along with “Hungry Eyes” which is given to singer Eric Carmen to record. Released as the lead single from the soundtrack in September of 1987, it quickly becomes a smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #73 on September 26, 1987, it climbs to the top of the chart nine weeks later. The huge success of the film and the song drive sales of the “Dirty Dancing” soundtrack to over 11x Platinum status in the US, selling over thirty two million copies worldwide. “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life” wins numerous accolades, including a Golden Globe and the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Medley and Warnes also win a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 1988. “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

Hedy Lamarr, whose real name was Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler, was born in Vienna in 1915. Forced into an arranged marriage at the age of eighteen, Hedy soon learned that her husband was making secret plans to sell Hitler weapons. As her husband became more and more controlling, she began to make escape plans. She supposedly drugged (by slipping three sleeping pills into her coffee) the maid that had been ordered to ‘look after her’. Then she took the maid’s dress, put it on, and walked out of the service entrance, making her way down the road to freedom. 

Hedy managed to get to London, and later signed a film contract with MGM, making several successful films in Hollywood.

During World War II, Hedy Lamarr, who was not only a talented and beautiful actress, but also an inventor, and George Antheil discussed the fact that radio-controlled torpedoes, while important in the naval war, could easily be jammed by broadcasting interference at the frequency of the control signal, causing the torpedo to go off course. Hedy and Antheil came up with the idea of using frequency hopping to avoid jamming, by using a piano roll to unpredictably change the signal sent between a control center and the torpedo at short bursts.

Hedy’s and Antheil’s frequency-hopping idea is the basis for some modern technology, including Bluetooth, COFDM (used in Wi-Fi), and CDMA (used in some cordless and wireless telephones).

Huang Zitao: no need to pander to those whom I don’t know

“Don’t say I’m cocky, I’m never cocky, not even with billions of pocket money…..”Huang Zitao used his new song’s lyrics to complete his narration of being embroiled in several controversies. Since his return, there has been several negative reports plaguing him, seemingly coming out all at the same time, from being late to acting like a big shot, being too rebellious etc. At that point in time, Our Taotao was anti-ed and attacked by all netizens alike. The meme packs alone are countless. This time round, Huang Zitao is getting interviewed by SE magazine with his new movie; and Huang Zitao’s words still has a lot of personality. While being anti-ed, Huang Zitao’s been moving ahead. In 2016, he held his own concert, had three film contracts, and his new album is near completion. At this stage, he feels that he still “never thought of trying to win the goodwill of others”, and is determined to concentrate on his career. At this stage, he feels that “dreams are far more important than love.”

Oh you know they got Holland on like a 10 film contract or something similar. That kid is gonna be Spidey for decades

Which could just exhaust him as the role if he’s in everything.

I just feel that, yes, though Spider-Man is very popular, Marvel and Sony are going to completely wreck their MCU just so we can get more Spider-Man.  After a while, it’ll just be “Spider-Man and the Avengers”

Chris Evans is ready to quit as Captain America after Avengers films

It looks as though Chris Evans’ time as Captain America will be coming to an end after the next two ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ films.

[Image by Marvel Studios]During a recent wide-ranging cover story for Esquire, it was revealed that Evans’ contractual obligations with Marvel Studios will come to an end after the above pair of films, while it was also suggested that the actor has no intention of signing on for any more:

“Settling in on the couch, he groans. Evans explains that he’s hurting all over because he just started his workout routine the day before to get in shape for the next two Captain America films. The movies will be shot back to back beginning in April. After that, no more red- white-and-blue costume for the thirty-five-year-old. He will have fulfilled his contract.”

Chris Evans only signed a six film contract with Marvel when he first agreed to star in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, negotiating it down from the original offer of nine. After these two ‘Avengers’ films Evans will have actually starred in seven Marvel films as Captain America, but since they’re filming back-to-back they’re probably being regarded as one.

During the same above interview Chris Evans points out that working on a Marvel film is so time consuming that it leaves him with very little room to explore other creative outlets. That’s because he has to spend five months on its production, as well as several months beforehand getting in shape, then a couple more months promoting the film, while there’s also reshoots and whatnot to contend with, too.

Considering he’s been in the role since 2011, and made his directorial debut with ‘Before We Go’ in 2014, there are clearly other parts and films that Chris Evans would like to grapple with. And with either Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) or Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) waiting in the wings to take over as Captain America, as per comics, this is far from the end for the beloved character, just a new beginning.
