Nikkei January 13, 2018:
'Godzilla' studio Toho to co-produce content with foreign filmmakers
Quote
TOKYO -- Japanese film studio Toho will jointly produce content with overseas peers to get a greater bite of earnings from foreign releases of popular domestic titles.

Toho plans to invest some 15 billion yen ($135 million) over three years starting in 2019 to produce works with Hollywood and Chinese studios of Japanese franchises where it has the rights. Co-productions of Hollywood versions of 2016 animated hit "Your Name" as well as "Pokemon" and "Godzilla" movies are in the works, with more to come.

Toho has had limited involvement in overseas movie production before, notably in Hollywood versions of its well-known monster movie. As a co-producer, it will invest up to 25% of production costs in each project, entitling it to a bigger share of revenue for successful content than just collecting royalties.

Toho will also manage the rights of creators and ensure that their ideas are reflected in the works. The studio also plans to act as broker between other Japanese studios and overseas counterparts in the future.

Japanese anime and dramas have become more popular abroad thanks to online video streaming. But going through services like Netflix makes it hard to increase domestic revenue, even if the content is well received abroad. Toho aims to secure overseas earnings by partnering with foreign studios.

The studio is also known for such classics as Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai," as well as the "Bayside Shakedown" series of police movies.

Dammit, Arnett, don't you have enough clout to avoid this shit?  Or are you in the Michael Caine/Ben Kingsley school of "acting's a job and I'll take any job that pays enough"?

Who the fuck would BRAG about being the director of Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Smurfs, and Scooby Doo?!
Oh wait, last year we had a movie trailer bragging about being from the director of Fifth Element. Never mind. Hollywood as usual.

Sundance starts tomorrow. I'm working 48 hours and hoping to see 35 movies.

So apparently Universal HASN'T learned it's lesson.

Tweaking the cast is not going to fix anything. The issues with The Mummy were more about writing, and trying to make what should be a horror movie into an action movie.

I did the internet equivalent of a double take after reading this post (Pressed back twice and then forward twice).  Did you think the original Mummy was a horror film?

The original Mummy from 1932 was. And so were the other original classic monster movies they are trying to remake.

Oh, damn. I was looking at the release schedule and Aardman's new movie EARLY MAN is being released the same day as Black Panther. That means it's going to get crushed in the box office. I'm really looking forward to Early Man, because I love Aardman's films. I'm also really looking forward to Black Panther. But it's a shame that Early Man probably won't be very successful because of the timing.

I don't know if you guys remember one of Spoony's older reviews, but he did one for a notorious 80's cheese fest called "Yor: The Hunter from the future". This past November I noticed it was being released on Blu-ray for a pretty cheap price so I said I got to have this. I'm supposed to get it by Saturday so I'll let you guys know my own personal thoughts on it after I've watched it. Oh, and while I'm on the subject, they're FINALLLY releasing Attack of the Killer tomatoes on DVD/Blu-ray. I don't know if it's been released on that medium before but that's a movie that was actually recommended to me by my therapist.

I remember Spoony's reviews, they are great. Yor is one of his best. I haven't seen it myself, but it's a bizarre movie based on all the clips I've seen.
I remember kind of liking Attack of the Killer Tomatoes as a kid, but even back then it was a bit too cheesy for my taste. I don't know if I want to revisit it.

Looks like we're getting another Crocodile Dundee movie...starring Danny McBride...as his son.

I feel like the information age has destroyed the quaint mystique of the Australian culture that made the original Dundee movies work.

The new movie is just going to be him going about a perfectly normal day working at a law firm in Sydney, and maybe at one point someone comments that a spider is particularly large.

This appears to be about his American son, so I'm guessing the joke might be that he is acting like the stereotype that doesn't exist.
