JUST-STOP FOR A MINUTE…..
Studios— pull your heads out of your asses….   Drink a bottle of Neuro Bliss and take a step back—- 
According to several sources, including the article linked above, Green Lantern cost $200m and only raked in $219m worldwide- barely covering itself—- and it wasn’t even good (opinion or fact? you decide). Forget the additional $100m they pumped into marketing that you won’t hear about.  
Meanwhile, ‘Buried’ which also starred Ryan Reynolds— in a box underground for 90 mins, equipped with a zippo lighter and a dying cell phone— raked in the same $19m worldwide yet cost under $2m to produce.  Something to think about—- I wonder how much more it would have made had it been marketed to the masses at even a fraction of the green lantern P&A? (for those that are just waking up from NYE, I’m not really ‘wondering’. It’s more of a trigger word than anything.) 
I don’t mean to spotlight Hal Jordan exclusively— it’s not his fault they f*cked him up. I’m sure on certain planets he’s still pretty cool, but it’s a prime example demonstrating the need for studio execs to take a breather and go back to basics yet again.  Now, let’s hope all involved can make use of the cliches of New Year’s, Auld Lang Syne, resolutions and such to make this happen posthaste.  
People will think about seeing, and many of those will actually go see, anything that has been advertised enough— this we know— It’s why they pump so much marketing into bad movies.  So try this— start being budget conscious for one— then you can afford to take some risks like you did when the system was falling apart in the 60’s and Easy Rider comes storming in alongside movies like The Graduate, Taxi Driver, The Godfather I & II, Don’t Look Now, Rosemary’s Baby, M*A*S*H*, Dirty Harry, Blazing Saddles (these are just a quick few off a long-list— please feel free to add your own— you all know the era to which I refer…) 
Don’t take your losses on mega blockbusters. Continue to make them, by all means— we love them—-just do a better job when it comes to making them.  Don’t murder Superman ever again.  Jesus F*ck, that was bad.  Granted, ages ago, relatively speaking, but I just had to get that out before Man of Steel rightfully corrects the ship (hope hope)
While you’re figuring out how to make these right again (hint: screenplay), take your calculated risks on more avante garde product— no, not a man in a latex suit masturbating in chocolate pudding with a lion mask on, shot in black and white at a dutch angle to illustrate the the dichotomy between what it means to be human and animal all the same.  (please not that)—  I mean start buying product before you go making new stuff that you have to con everyone into seeing.  Vet your development execs better— give them an allowance and have them choose 3-5 films at festival/market - low budget fare, to measure their ‘eye’, and then see how they fare, then take risks on Owen Wilson/Kate Hudson vehicles written by someone with a few great ‘Modern Family’ specs. 
Buy product that gives you chills, nightmares, makes you laugh your ass off, even blush while doing so, cry in front of your associates… spend money on that for a little bit— or hand a camera and a dollar bill to those who have proven their ability to do that for you in the first place and then, get the f*ck out of the way. Write the checks and let them do what THEY do. 
We’re in for a shake-up, this is for certain— as the pendulum swings, the film market’s digestive track is simply going through a cleansing phase, squeezing out the last bit of waste and fecal matter before the real auteurs come in and steal the screen back, once again, en masse.  I cannot wait to see what this new era brings!  
I should also add, and this is crucial to the demise of this year’s B.O. decline,  I think the home video market is shaking things up quite a bit more than the entertainment media gives it credit for— yes we’ve all read articles about what’s happening now and that VOD is strong and markets are being tested, etc.—but look into your crystal ball a bit more— the 80” flatscreens a mainstay on shopnbc, 3D glasses at home, 7.1 sound systems, vs. poor service, selection and pricing at movie theater concession stands, inflated ticket prices in a down economy, turnaround time from theater to La-Z-boy, not to mention a growing concern for overall health, spreading of germs, heating/cooling preferences in theaters,— these things make most say outloud- I’ll just watch it at home.
I love going to the movie theater, as, when its full, the warmth of a crowd— the laughs, the kleenex dabs and the jumps and screams can make even a below-par movie seem a lot more satisfying—-but I see far less the crowd each and every year. Roger Ebert echoes some of this in his own commentary this year. I’m not an extremist- they’ll always find a way to keep the movie theater alive (or at least ‘present tense’ Mark hopes they do), but home entertainment is where a good portion of the box office is going and I’m certain that many of the ‘box office failures’ of 2011 will do just fine in the Home Entertainment market. 
That said, here is my short, off-the-cuff List of Studio and Independent Movies of Late That Show We’re Still Alive and Feeling (and all is not nearly as hopeless as we’ve feared):  
The Adventures of TinTin (SAS finally figured out how to successfully re-incarnate Indiana Jones!), Inglourious Basterds, Pan’s Labyrinth (a ways back, but still an all-time fave), The Social Network,  Tree of Life (He’s still got it…Malick, that is), Melancholia, Doubt, Let Me In (remake done right), The Fighter, Toy Story 3, Black Swan, Drag Me To Hell, Quantum of Solace (thank you for resuscitating this guy),  Drive, Bridesmaids…again, there are a good handful of others that could be mentioned here, so feel free to add your own!

SIGNS OF LIFE IN THE HYPERION GALAXY

Holt McCallany in sci-fi movie White Space.  Visit the official site at www.enterwhitespace.com

I’m not sure how many remember the 2001 Anthrax Attacks- when everyone was scared to open their mail because you didn’t know if it was a care package from Grandma or just a healthy dose of Bacillus Anthracis waiting to snuff you out; but this is kind of how I felt when producing partner Ryan Colucci sent me the latest cut of White Space.  

The one thing we (WS producers) all know- is that we have a high-margin product on our hand.  If we learned one thing from AFM it’s that there’s an insatiable industry appetite for Disaster Films, Thinking-person’s horror and Effects Driven Sci-Fi films like White Space.  So profit margin is there- pretty much built in from the get, thanks to some hard work from a talented crew and a win-win deal with our VFX masterminds, www.filmworksfx.com.   

However, from a creative standpoint, after viewing the first rough cut, I can’t say I was doing cartwheels.  The screenplay - written by Clay McLeod Chapman and Ryan Colucci- is top-notch, solid - and I wanted so very much for our final product to be as loyal to the page as possible.  This wasn’t exactly the case.  Again, from a product standpoint— great- check, please.  But creatively- I knew we had a much better film on our hands and thankfully, Colucci- was straight up, Judd Nelson, Relentless, in tracking down the man with a plan— Eric Potter-  an immensely talented editor with a VFX background.  His credits speak for themselves with work on movies like Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and The Lincoln Lawyer, starring Matthew McConaughey, to name a few. 

His name may as well be HARRY Potter because he turned out sheer magic in comparison to the initial cut I reviewed.  I made notes on the cut last night from around 11pm to 3am and the only thing missing was the popcorn.  

This is the movie we set out to make. It’s a Monster. Brooding and mysterious with thrills and jumps along the way through to an exciting conclusion with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a sci-fi thriller about a deep space crew gone mad as they get in over their heads on the chase for a black market take, disturbing a legendary beast that will do anything to protect its territory.

Mike The Pike Productions, Inc. Signs LOI with Executive Producers for $60-80 Million Feature Adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s ‘The Skin Trade’

GRRM's The Skin Trade

LOS ANGELES, CA –August 10, 2011- Mike the Pike Productions, Inc. (OTC: MIKP) (www.mtpprods.com) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent with a team of Executive Producers (EPs) to Package and Finance Mike The Pike Productions’ ‘The Skin Trade’ by George R.R. Martin, the author/creator behind HBO’s smash success, ‘Game of Thrones’.  

The Agreement will entail the EP group to secure A-list attachments (writer, director, cast) and a minimum agreed upon budget to satisfy production value of approximately $60-80M and at least 25% of the budget raised in cash. Pre-Sales and Tax Incentives will be harvested to mitigate overall risk.

“George is one of the hottest names in Hollywood right now and the supernatural is trending with no end in sight,” stated MIKP CEO, Mark B. Newbauer. “So we’ve got a pretty good combo on hands, well equipped to hit the major agencies and financiers toward a win-win,” said Newbauer.

‘GRRM’s ‘The Skin Trade’ is a werewolf novella with a macabre backdrop in the vein of films like ‘’Underworld’, ‘The Howling’ and even ‘Silence of the Lambs’ which was recently optioned by MTP for a feature film adaptation. Producers are confident the piece will have both critical and commercial appeal with a box-office scenario that could well outperform its (even recent) Lycan counterparts. Trends in the industry, set by Films like ‘Twilight’ and Original Series such as ‘True Blood’ suggest strong potential for anything to do with werewolves or vampires

MTP and its partners recently wrapped principle photography on sci-fi thriller ‘White Sapce’ written by Spoke Lane Entertainment’s ‘Ryan Colucci’ and Directed by Ken Locsmandi, owner/founder of visual effects/post-house mecca www.filmworksfx.com . The film is currently in post-production in Los Angeles. 

George R.R. Martin, coined ‘The American Tolkein’ and recently named by Time Magazine as one of the top 100 Most Influential People is the author/creator behind HBO’s  successful epic series, Game of Thrones, which is nominated for 13 Emmys, including Outstanding Drama and Outstanding Writing.

Mike The Pike Productions expects to sign an Agreement with Executive Producers in the coming days. 

Currently, Avatar Press (http://www.avatarpress.com/) is developing the Graphic Novel version of ‘The Skin Trade’.  

More news to come on ‘White Space’, ‘The Skin Trade’ and another exciting property yet to be announced!   

IN DEVELOPMENT: 

MTP Producers Ryan Colucci, Beth Newbauer and Mark B. Newbauer present: George R.R. Martin’s THE SKIN TRADE: From the best-selling author behind HBO’s Game of Thrones comes this white knuckle chiller with a string of unsolved murders immersed deep in lycan lore : When a series of grotesque killings strikes her small hometown, private detective Randi Wade becomes suspicious. The grisly murders remind her all too much of her own father’s death nearly 20 years ago. Now there is a killer in town who not only slays his victims, but also takes their skin. Undaunted, Randi takes the case head-on as the murders continue, each more brutal than the last. When a close friend suddenly becomes a target, he is forced to reveal a startling secret about himself and Randi is quickly pulled into a dark world within her own town where monsters do exist and even they have something to fear…
