Jon Favreau on CBM "Bloodbath" in 2011
Iron Man and Iron Man 2 Director Jon Favreau discuss what it's like to be releasing his film Cowboys and Aliens next year in a year where there is more Comic Book based films then ever!
Jon Favreau is planning to release his "Cowboys and Aliens" movie during the summer of next year, but is worried that his film will get lost among the many blockbusters that are set to be released around the same time.
Looking at the summer of 2011, studios will release "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," "Transformers: The Dark of the Moon," "Green Lantern," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger," "X-Men: First Class," "Cars 2," "Kung Fu Panda 2," "The Smurfs 3D," "Rise of the Apes," "Super 8," "The Hangover Part II," and many others.
"It's Omaha Beach, it's going to be a bloodbath," said Favreau. "There's never been a summer like this next summer. It's going to be bloody [for filmmakers and the studios]. As we were sticking thumb tacks in a calendar we realized that this is going to be looked back upon as Omaha Beach."
He continued: "There's not a weekend where there won't be teeth on the floor. The audience wins but it's going to be rough for people making these movies. Then there was the big rush to 3D, so you have all of these people fighting for a limited number of screens and to get the 3D done, since most of these are hybrids or conversions, so this is a technology that is still in the relatively early stages and there's going to be a lot of blood pressures going up in the months ahead."
MrDCU:I agree with Favreau. Only 1 movie is going to come out on top. Some of the studios are going to be disappointed with their films' taking because of all the competition. Which one do I think will reign king? Well the last ever Harry Potter will reach at least $1billion gaurenteed but who is the best of the rest and who is going to be the best CBM? Green Lantern for me. The franchise is just going to be starting out on a massive world wide scale and possibly even bigger than Batman will be. The biggest loser? X-Men: First Class I think will be the one that will be the epic fail because I think people will just be bored of the X-Men franchise now after all 5 films previous and will be looking for something fresh, where films Green Lantern, Thor and Captain America come in.
