FX Acquires ‘Venom’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’, ‘Green Book’ & More Movies

  • Deadline
FX Networks continues to snap up all marquee movie titles that become available. Over the past six months, the network has acquired such commercial and critical hits as Venom and the Oscar-nominated Bohemian Rhapsody, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and Green Book.

FX, whose movie deals also include streaming rights to make the films available on the network’s digital platforms, several years ago pulled away from off-network series, opting to spend the bulk of its acquisition budget on theatrical films instead. With a few rare exceptions, most notably The Big Bang Theory, movies significantly outperform off-network series on basic cable, they have longer shelf lives and deliver a wide range of audiences that can sample new original series launching behind them.

The list of recent FX movie acquisitions include Halloween, Bumblebee, Night School, The First Purge, Peter Rabbit, First Man, BlacKkKlansman, Book Club, The Meg, Breaking In, The House with a Clock In Its Walls,

The 23rd annual Art Directors Guild Awards took place on Saturday (Feb. 2). These kudos have a stellar record at previewing the winner of the Best Production Design race at the Academy Awards. Over the first 22 years of these prizes, the eventual Oscar champ has always numbered among the Adg nominees in the various genre categories. Fifteen of the Academy Award winners first prevailed with the guild, including the last five in a row.

The current Oscar frontrunner for this award, “The Favourite,” won at the Adg in the period category over, among others, two of its Oscar rivals: “First Man” and “Roma.” That race was rounded out by “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” One of the other two Academy Awards contenders — “Black Panther” — won the Adg fantasy film prize. The fifth Oscar nominee, “Mary Poppins Returns,” contended in that race. The contemporary award went to “Crazy Rich Asians.

Universal to release eOne’s films theatrically in Australia/New Zealand

Miranda Tapsell in ‘Top End Wedding.’

In a further sign of consolidation in the independent film sector, Universal Pictures International will take over the theatrical marketing and distribution of Entertainment One (eOne) releases in Australia and New Zealand.

The new arrangement takes effect in April and will include Wayne Blair’s Top End Wedding (which opens on May 2), Rachel Ward’s Palm Beach, Shannon Murphy’s Babyteeth and the Roache-Turner brothers’ Nekrotronic.

There was no immediate indication of layoffs among the eOne team headed by MD Sandie Don. Formerly head of distribution, Don was elevated to MD in November 2017 after Troy Lum stepped up to become executive vice president of international productions.

Disturbing Video of an Animatronic Baby Body with Jack Black's Adult Head

Eli Roth’s latest film The House with a Clock in Its Walls was actually a pretty fun movie. But, I have to say, the moment it lost me was when Jack Black’s character was transformed into a baby that had his adult head. I just didn’t like that!

I thought the whole thing was created using CG animation, but it wasn’t! They actually build a creepy-ass animatronic baby doll with the life-like animatronic head of Jack Black.

A behind-the-scenes video has been released showing off the animatronic doll, and it’s something you might see in a disturbing nightmare. The fact that this thing exists in real life is so weird! But at the same time, it’s impressive work and kinda cool.

It gives me a little more respect for the scene that I hated so much in the movie.

‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ First Trailer: Cate Blanchett Goes Missing in Richard Linklater Mystery
After the modest results of his 2017 drama “Last Flag Flying,” Richard Linklater is set to return in a big way next year with none other than Cate Blanchett. The two have teamed up for an adaptation of Maria Semple’s 2012 novel “Where’d You, Bernadette.” Both Linklater and Blanchett have been attached to the film since November 2015, which makes next year’s release from Annapurna Pictures a long time coming for the mystery comedy.

“Where’d You Go, Bernadette” stars Blanchett as an agoraphobic architect who goes missing, leaving her 15-year-old daughter with no choice but to journey out and investigate her disappearance. Emma Nelson is starring as the daughter, Bee, while the supporting cast also includes Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer, James Urbaniak, and Troian Bellisario. Linklater punched up the script, originally written by “The Spectacular Now” and “The Disaster Artist” Oscar nominees Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter.

Last September horror director Eli Roth delivered his first children’s movie with The House With A Clock In Its Walls, which despite being aimed at kids was surprisingly freaky in parts.
