The Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick 'Mama' marked Andy Muschietti's directorial debut and about an $89.2 million box office payoff -- and there are still 43 territories or so to see the film. With all this success, it's only natural for Universal to want to maximise their profit by shelling out a 'Mama 2,' and it looks like the studio is already planning such a move. Too bad it'll most likely be without Muschietti behind the wheel.

'Mama' was a huge hit for Universal Pictures (over $50 million so far) and you know what that means for a horror film: 'Mama 2.' But while studio executives are surely working on a way to spin 'Mama' into the next big horror franchise, there's one person who doesn't think there should be a 'Mama 2' - the director.

'Sons of Anarchy' star Charlie Hunnam is making some tidal waves on the big screen with his leading gig in Guillermo del Toro's highly anticipated 'Pacific Rim,' where we'll see him portray a futuristic pilot manning a gigantic monster-fighting robot. A little bit more complex than the motorcycles he's used to, but so far it seems like he enjoys the del Toro approach as he's already eyeing a role in del Toro's next movie 'Crimson Peak.'

'Mama' Review

by Jordan Hoffman January 16, 2013 @ 11:00 AM
The "Creepy Kid" movie is officially a genre. From 'Village of the Damned' to 'The Bad Seed' to shots of Danny Torrence spaced out and making noises from the back of his throat in 'The Shining,' there's something that cuts from the screen directly to whichever gland releases that “flight” endorphin in your brain. While the marketing material makes it seem as if 'Mama' is going to be a Creepy Kid movie for the ages, it falls upon me to report that, sadly, this is not the case. This is, at root, another "Kid in Peril" flick, and while that has a value all its own, it is not quite a vehicle for inexplicable, nightmare-inducing horror.

'Robopocalypse' Isn't Dead Yet! Steven Spielberg Clarifies "Indefinite Hold"

The decisions of directors often impact their colleagues, especially when they're working in close proximity to similar material, so it makes sense to think that perhaps Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' influenced Steven Spielberg's decision to place 'Robopocalypse' on indefinite hold. However, this "hold" may not be what it seems, according to recent statements by Spielberg.

We've been hearing a lot about this 'Justice League Dark' movie Guillermo del Toro is planning, the latest update coming from the director himself confirming he is indeed working on a script to pitch to Warner Bros. Coming off of 'The Dark Knight Rises' and planning its own answer to the 'Avengers' phenomenon (i.e. that 'Justice League' movie), the studio seems committed to the development of superhero movies, especially with 'Man of Steel' on the horizon, so there's is a possibility this project could see the light of day. In the event that should happen, one question needs to be answered: who the hell are these superheroes?
