Diego Molano (Victor and Valentino) makes his leap to the big screen as he is attached to direct Endless Animation’s musical adaptation of Samba de Amigo as Germaine Franco (Coco, Carmen’s Voyage) will help write the songs.

 

The pitch is being described as less of an adventure film but rather the story of Amigo, the titular monkey trying to follow his dream to be a famous musician in New York. The film is inspired by Broadway and old school musicals with a heavy Hispanic flair.

 

Samba De Amigo is aiming for a Y8/Y9 release.

Coming Year VI and VII...

In the midst of the ongoing production of Alpha Pictures' Star Fox, the studio has decided to split the animated feature into two parts: Star Fox: Part I, which will be released on the film's original release date of July 15th, Year 6, and Star Fox: Part II, which will be released on Memorial Day Weekend (May 26th) in Year 7.

 

According to sources close to the production, Alpha Pictures executives were concerned that Star Fox's ballooning running time, which is estimated to be around four-and-a-half hours long, would be far too long for general audiences, even with an added intermission. However, directors Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery were reportedly reluctant to recut the film down to a more suitable runtime, arguing that trimming the film would eliminate important story elements and character development. Instead, an agreement was reached between the studio and the directors to split Star Fox into 2 two-hour films in order to preserve the filmmakers' original vision.

In the far future, survival hangs by a thread.

 

 

 

CAYOM Magazine presents all new details on

 

T H E  S C A V E N G E R  W A R S  P A R T  I I I

 

(post contains TSW2 spoilers)

Spoiler

Once box office estimates came in on Monday, December 20th, Year 5, Cookie Pictures officially announced two further films in The Scavenger Wars saga following Part II. The first, originally titled The Lone Wanderers, will see a summer Y7 release and is positioned as the studio's largest tentpole - in a release schedule that already includes a third Scrooge McDuck film and the first film adaptation of the Legend of Zelda franchise.

 

 

Red Band

 

Much like its critically acclaimed and hugely successful predecessor, Cookie Pictures President and CEO Sebastian Peters has confirmed that the third entry will sport an R-rating, the second for the series.

 

31-312784_r-rating-rated-r-png.png

 

"There was a lot of back and forth when we worked on the second film whether we should have a restricted rating or not. Then of course the third Odyssey film happened and the rest is history", Peters explained. "Part three however is written with a restricted rating in mind from the very start, and besides chickening out now is more likely to hurt both the product and audience engagement than it is to benefit either."

 

"Besides, I've heard Endless Entertainment is putting out a Can You Imagine? sequel the same month, so a Scrooge sequel out that summer was off the table anyhow."

 

With the two previous films combining for ten Oscar victories, thirty-six nominations and over two point three billion dollars at the worldwide box office, obviously any follow up, especially one that leads directly off a devastating cliffhanger, has a lot to live up to.

 

128412.jpg

Impressed with his work on Numerator Pictures's Y4 franchise starter 'Mass Effect', Peters approached director Matt Shakman to helm Part III.

 

"We're definitely heading into darker territory than where even Part II went, and if you know how Part II ended, that should tell you something", Peters continued. "Consequences both on a grand and a personal scale not only drives drama but also stakes, and with both at their highest level yet you can expect to start seeing some crazy shit happen."

 

 

A Quick Recap

 

The Scavenger Wars Part II ends with a reversal of the first film - the good guys have lost and the villains have accomplished (some) of their goals. Jarek had toppled Tamara's rule and forever dashed hopes of a maintained peace between the human and Scavenger races.

 

The last we saw of Tamara, a childhood friend of hers by the name of Sal had left her stabbed and bleeding to death in a field of flowers. Lucina, who had driven Sal away earlier by making threats to her life, tried to get Tamara safely out of the city but failed to save both her and her lover Luna, leaving Luna captive in Jarek's possession and Tamara's fate unbeknownst to anyone in the universe but Sal.

 

Out in space, Ares, Lord of the Dominion empire and Jarek’s enabler, had abducted Luna's sister Sunn as the siblings held the key to attaining a great resource on Khouga's surface. Sunn managed to outwit Ares and escape, but that only led the two to cross paths a second time when the H.F.F was ambushed by Ares's armada. While Sunn managed to score a victory against Ares, it still lead to the destruction of three ships and the sacrifices of most of the H.F.Fs higher command, including Grand Admiral Radian Helms.

 

After facing threats from Ares, Jarek tasked Sal to find Sunn and bring her to him, and kill anyone who gets in her way. Sal, no matter how much regret she had in her, begrudgingly accepted her mission.

 

 

The Story of Part III

 

A couple of months have passed. Tamara is still unaccounted for, and Luna remains captive of Jarek. No one has heard of Lucina since Milky Way and Pinwheel joined together to escape Dominion pursuit. Sunn is living with constant nightmares and guilt that she couldn't do more to stop Ares, even if it wasn't her fault. Arthur is still grappling with what his research had unearthed and while an H.F.F warrant had been sent out for Sal, neither the fleet nor Jarek know where she’s gone.

 

The H.F.F has depleted to two ships under command of fresh appointee Aaron Sebastian and surviving veteran Julia Hemphill, and as long as Sunn remains on board the fleet it is both a blessing and a curse - her powers were the only thing that saved them from total destruction by Ares's armada, but Ares will never stop pursuing them knowing she's with them.

 

"There's arguments on both sides of the issue", Peters explained. "The less humane thing would be to simply abandon her and hope Ares ceases his pursuit, but then there's the fact that Ares wanting complete dominion over this side of the universe means he wouldn't spare the humans even if they had what he wanted or not - and in fact as revealed near the end of the previous film, he wasn't planning to. So it's kind of a no-win situation."

 

"Sunn's arc in the last movie was a college girl who, having had only recently entered the outside world, had no real knowledge of the dangers that lurked or what the consequences of exposing herself and her abilities would bring, all while discovering that she was more than she thought herself capable of, but she still lost her sister in the process. Having to deal not only with the loss of Luna, but also with one half of the fleet seeing you as the reason they're all sentenced to die and the other half seeing you as the reason they aren't dead already, that's a lot to grapple with."

Mary Elizabeth Winstead ,Bex Taylor-Klaus, Sasha Lane, Kenneth Branagh, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Holly Hunter return as Lucina, Sunn, Sal, Arthur, Aaron and Julia respectively.

 

Doesn't help that the situation between the two remaining ships is turning dire. "The H.F.F decided in order to remain hidden from the eyes of Ares as much as possible, they couldn't send out distress signals to anyone in the galaxy or travel to other worlds for help, fearing Ares would intercept. With the resources meant for two ships having to carry the burdens of four [While three out of five ships were destroyed during Ares's attack, the population of two of them managed to escape], food is depleting fast and with no means of restocking coupled with a population-wide trauma and distress society as a whole is descending into a state of panic.

 

With the population now more than ever under desperate need for a strong leadership, and despite their best efforts neither Captain Sebastian nor Captain Hemphill can provide that, even less so when Hemphill falls ill under suspicious circumstances.

 

Enter the fleet's new Grand Admiral - and the film's principal antagonist - Eliza D. Winters, played by Jodie Foster.

 

rexfeatures_9188670l.jpg&key=bca721b3953

Both Peters and Shakman sought a female antagonist after Jason Isaacs, Ben Foster and Andy Serkis played the previous main baddies. They landed on Foster due to, as Peters put it, the Academy Award-winning actress having "a very commanding presence".

 

Peters explained that a central theme with the saga past the first film is that, in a way, the many ills of the universe are circular. It took only five years for Jarek to drum up enough hatred to start the human-Scavenger conflict all over again, and it took a desperate human populace needing someone to strong-arm them into a tangible direction to settle into who can essentially be described as Packer's ideological heir.

 

Admiral Winters, having just seized control from Hemphill and degraded Sebastian's position, will not take no for an answer, and will resort to any means necessary to get the job done - no matter how many innocent lives gets in her way. Everyone in her immediate chain of command don't approve of her methods, but they prove to be very popular with a divided populace, and she herself will egg on that divisiveness because of end goals Peters said are best left unspoiled.

 

"While there's a lot we're revealing today, there's a whole lot we aren't", said Peters. "This includes new cast additions that I think audiences will be keeping an eye out for."

 

41UAT7V9K0L.jpgiyh9xj.jpg

The additions of 'Pillars of Eternity''s Lily James and 'Room''s Brie Larson have been touted, but Peters wants to keep them a secret for now. All he could confirm was that Larson's role would be brought to life through performance capture.

 

In addition to returning mains and newcomers, Lauren Veléz, Taissa Farmiga, Sarah Paulson and the dog Olivia are all also expected to return in some capacity.

 

Right after the Y5 Academy Awards, a video was uploaded on Cookie Pictures's Youtube page pertaining to be a scene from the film, which Peters confirms is the opening sequence. This leads to the question of given that so much focus has been put on Sunn, the H.F.F and the rise of Admiral Winters, where does the conflict between Lucina and Sal fit into all of this?

 

"We're definitely making Lucina and Sal the forefront characters of the story, along with Sunn", Peters answered. "Both Sal and Lucina have issues, to put it mildly, and this time the two will finally clash in a pretty spectacular way. We had heard the feedback from Part II, and we made it our mission to further develop these two characters and really give them the center stage this time around."

 

Ben%2BFoster%2BAin%2Bt%2BThem%2BBodies%2

While Ben Foster's Jarek is not the main antagonist in Part III, his influence will hang over everyone like a dark cloud. His actions will be felt, and his presence ever intimidating.

 

 

Danger Afoot

 

"By setting the story on board the two remaining H.F.F ships, we're hoping to make a very concise but also action-packed story", Shakman explained when asked of the film's premise.  "We really get to explore the insides of both Milky Way and Pinwheel as the society within both are crumbling, and it creates this atmosphere that's always tense and more than a little claustrophobic. Part II was all about build-up to a large payoff while Part III focuses more on an ever escalating series of events, with some hopefully kick ass action sequences in between."

 

Shakman described Part III as part conspiracy thriller, part spy movie, part psychological drama and part hard-boiled action flick, Peters adding that the team drew inspiration from the likes of Jack Ryan, James Bond, The Dark Knight, the first volume of Kill Bill and sci-fi anime for some of the film's more dazzling sequences.

 

"It will definitely be raw and heavy on drama, but not entirely bereft of humor", Peters continued when asked if the inspirations will also shape the film's tone. "I've always believed that no good movie is without levity, it all just comes down to a good mix and match of tones and execution. We're definitely looking to make more of a popcorn film with the third entry."

 

 

Radiohead

 

Cookie Pictures has confirmed already early in production that The Scavenger Wars Part III will feature a headliner song by English rock band Radiohead. After earning Oscar nominations for both Lorde's "Light the Fire" and Dua Lipa's "Still Breeze", the third film pivots to a yet untitled number from Radiohead as its musical centerpiece, with plans to possibly create a Bond-style opening credits sequence featuring it.

 

 Peters approved Radiohead after listening to their 2017 release "Man of War" [Fun fact: "Man of War" was submitted to be the main song for SPECTRE, but was rejected on the grounds it had been written prior to the production of that film - it was originally written in 1997 but went unreleased for two decades.]

 

 

Release Date

 

As teased in an earlier tweet, Cookie Pictures is aiming for release on June 16th, Year 7, returning the series to its summer roots. "This is mostly for practical reasons", Peters explained of the scheduling decision. "We aim to have the fourth part in the series out in the fourth quarter of Year 8, and an 18 month-ish gap between films just made sense to us. Not sure if this is something we intend to maintain as the franchise progresses, but we like to focus on the two films ahead of us before we decide where to go next."

Endless Animation’s Should You Imagine moves near the lucrative 4th of July weekend on June 30th, Y7, due to Cookie Pictures’ The Scavenger Wars Part III opening on it’s original June 16th, Y7 spot. Although, Scavengers will carry an R rating, and Should You Imagine will carry a PG rating as well as being animated counterprogramming, Xavier B Ivring states the following “Can You Imagine? was by far the studio’s favorite project and most proudest work. There wouldn’t be a sequel if the studio wasn’t confident in recapturing the magic and adding new elements. We don’t view this as an animated film, we see this as every other film here and want the best for it. Adults and kids loved the Anderson family, and we want the widest audience possible to see their return.”

Wish I would’ve learned that earlier. :hahaha:

But it’s all good, I get July summer days, and it gives it and Antonius more space. If I nail it I’m hoping SYI? can head towards $500M but I wonder what kind of 5 day it’d need.

 

I can see Scavi3s doing $180M/$600M and SYI? doing a $170M five day/$460M
