New Predator was dumb fun.
It looked like that's what they were going for in the trailers, I liked the original predator as ridiculous as it was because of the tension during the final fight between the Predator and Arnold, I don't think any of them have come close to matching that feeling since and this one doesn't look like they were even trying for that kind of movie.

I think JJ can come up with a good final film to the new trilogy.

I want to see new films after that take place either way in the past or awhile after the new trilogy. Original story, characters, ect...

From the beginning I thought and hoped JJ was gonna do all three, I believe he may be able to fix it, just don’t play it safe again.

Force awakens was fine but Jedi a mess which ignored pretty much everything before it and tried too hard to be Marvel rather than Star Wars

Star wars better than it's ever been since og trilogy. Bring on more spin offs , keep lighter budget and bring down sales expectations and you could pump these out every two years going forward.

Except for Last Jedi. They dropped the ball in massive ways.

I really wish I would have never saw that film. I'm not an ultra hardcore SW fan, but it ruined the enjoyment I had for the series. It made a mockery of the old characters. It feels like a sick, twisted joke.

Apparently Disney is saying they will make some R Rated films. Hopefully that is true.

Well, on a recent earnings call, the CEO of Disney Bob Iger assured investors that Disney plans on keeping Deadpool rated R and that R-rated movies will be a part of their plans moving forward.

“We’re going to continue in that business,” Iger said according to Variety. Adding that “There’s certainly popularity” for movies like that. Iger explained that to differentiate between R-rated movies and more family-friendly fare the company will be “carefully branding [R-rated films]…so we’re not in any way confusing the consumer.” Meaning, they are unlikely to say “Disney” at the beginning of them. Which makes sense—for instance, Disney owns ESPN but there’s no castle in front of Monday Night Football. ESPN is its own brand and Fox may continue to be its own brand as well. At least for R-rated movies.

https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-disney-fox-deal-is-officially-complete-1833437912


As of 12:02 a.m ET today, the Walt Disney company officially took over the reins of much of 21st Century Fox, making the House of Mouse even more disconcertingly powerful than you can possibly imagine.

In a press release dropped late last night, Disney confirmed that the $71.3 billion deal which now grants it ownership of Fox’s film and TV assets—specifically (take a deep breath) Twentieth Century Fox, Fox Searchlight Pictures, Fox 2000 Pictures, Fox Family and Fox Animation; Fox’s TV’s creative units, Twentieth Century Fox Television, FX Productions and Fox21, FX Networks, National Geographic Partners, Fox Networks Group International, and Star India—as well as Fox’s 30 percent stake in Hulu, giving Walt Disney a 60 percent controlling stake in total, is complete. The process brings an end to a saga that has developed over the past two years.


Disney CEO Bob Iger told staff in a memo acquired by the Hollywood Reporter


I wish I could tell you that the hardest part is behind us; that closing the deal was the finish line, rather than just the next milestone. What lies ahead is the challenging work of uniting our businesses to create a dynamic, global entertainment company with the content, the platforms, and the reach to deliver industry-defining experiences that will engage consumers around the world for generations to come.

We’ve spent the last year exploring the new opportunities and synergies generated by bringing our two legendary companies together. Leaders across both organizations have worked closely together to understand how to best unlock this potential and unleash innovation and creativity to generate long-term growth. We’re confident in our integration strategy and in our ability to execute it effectively; and we’re inspired and energized by the new possibilities.
