At Wonder Festival (WonFes) Summer 2016 this weekend, Union Creative displayed a second Jean MensHdge figure (Survey Corps Version), with Jean holding his Survey Corps jacket rather than the 3DMG blades in the original version!
Universal and Legendary are readying to build a Skyscraper.
The Dwayne Johnson 3D action-thriller will hit theaters on July 13, 2018. It will open opposite Paramount’s animated feature Amusement Park, Columbia’s animated threequel Hotel Transylvania 3, and Warner Bros.’ New Line horror flick The Nun.
Johnson stars in the film as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name, and somehow rescue his family, who are trapped inside the building above the fire line.
Written and to be directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (who also helmed Johnson’s comedy Central Intelligence), Skyscraper is being produced by Beau Flynn, Johnson, and Thurber, with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia as executive producers. Wendy Jacobson is co-producing.
The project sparked a bidding war last May, with bids quickly hitting the seven-figure mark. Legendary, acquired by Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda in January, came out on top, paying at least $3 million for the script alone. Production in China begins in August.

Johnson shared more about his character on Instagram: “My character is a disabled US War Vet and former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader. This character is inspired by the thousands of disabled US veterans and war heroes I’ve had the honor of shaking hands with over the years. This character is also an homage to the everyday man and woman who, despite all odds, will dig deep and do everything possible to protect and save their family. Research for this film has been a real education for me (and that’s saying a lot considering my horrible freshman year GPA) from meeting with the world’s top skyscraper architects to spending amazing time with our US combat and disabled vets. Good thing I’m not afraid of heights. But at 4,000 ft it’s a different story.”

Amy Winehouse documentary to hit UK cinemas on 3 July
Amy, distributed by Altitude Film, has just been pegged to a summer release date. A trailer hasn’t been made public yet, but the film is due to feature both unheard tracks and previously unseen archive footage of the singer and songwriter.
“About two years ago we decided to make a movie about her – her career and her life,” said Universal Music UK CEO David Joseph. “It’s a very complicated and tender movie. It tackles lots of things about family and media, fame, addiction, but most importantly, it captures the very heart of what she was about, which is an amazing person and a true musical genius.“
Winehouse died in London, aged 27, of alcohol poisoning in 2011.
Sundance Opening Film ‘The Bronze’ Gets Summer Release Date
Bryan Buckley’s The Bronze becomes the latest Sundance film to nab a summer release date. The comedy, the opening-night title at the Park City film festival in January, has been given a July 31 wide release, distributor Relativity announced on Friday. The film will have a limited release on July 10. The Bronze revolves around a former Olympic gymnast portrayed by Melissa Rauch, with a cast featuring Gary Cole and Thomas Middleditch. U.S. rights were acquired by Relativity for a figure in the range of $3 million, sources previously told The Hollywood Reporter. International rights went to Sony. In a festival review, THR’s chief film critic Todd McCarthy wrote that Buckley “brings energy to his directorial feature debut but precious little style.” With a wide release on July 31, the title may serve as counterprogramming against Paramount tentpole Mission Impossible 5, which recently vacated its Christmas release plan to avoid a showdown with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Other films planned for release that weekend include Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw and Ryan Reynolds’ thriller Self/Less. The Bronze is one of multiple titles to emerge from Sundance with a theatrical debut in the next few months.
(Closed) Let’s Take a Persona 5 Poll: Avoiding Spoilers Outside of Japan
It’s likely that P-Studio′s promise of a summer release date for the game will only apply to Japan, and there will be a gap of time where other regions like NA/EU/AUS will have to wait. How do you plan on avoiding spoilers until the game is released in your region?
A. I live in JP/I’m going to import the game from JP as soon as I can.
B. I’m going to gobble up anything as soon as it comes out: let’s plays, articles, summaries, whatever happens in the game I want to know immediately (even if I plan on buying the game later).
C. Mass unfollowing of blogs who don’t make it clear they won’t be posting spoilers/state they will be posting spoilers.
D. Indiscriminate unfollowing of blogs that post about Persona 5.
E. Dropping off the internet for a while.
F. I don’t plan on doing anything. I don’t think I’ll see spoilers, since I’m not active in the Japanese fandom.
G. I don’t plan on doing anything. If spoilers come, I don’t mind.
H. I don’t know what I’ll do.
(If you don’t mind, reblogging really helps to get more people to see this and answer. I’ll make another post with the results on a later date. Thank you!)
All posts include English translations wherever necessary.
Will also not be doing summarised translations for their radio appearances on InterFM’s Are You Rolling?…We’re Rolling, J-WAVE’s Beat Planet or FM Yokohama’s Tresen+. Most of the talk is centralised on their “Stamp!” single and world tour, so unless requested by a number of people, I have no intention to translate those.
