Masters of the Universe (film) - Wikipedia

Masters of the Universe is a 1987 science fiction film based on the toy line of the same name . The movie stars Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor . Other actors include Jon Cypher as Man-At-Arms , Chelsea Field as Teela and Billy Barty as Gwildor , the short Thenorian inventor/locksmith.

The film was released in the United States on August 7, 1987 after the popularity of the toy line and cartoon had peaked.

On the Planet Eternia , at the center of the universe, the forces of Skeletor have managed to seize control over Castle Grayskull, and capture the Sorceress of Grayskull . Skeletor is planning to exploit Grayskull's hidden powers when the "Great Eye of the Galaxy", a portal in the castle's throne room, opens and Eternia's moon is correctly aligned with it.

Nobody sets out to make a bad movie. But the truth is, it happens all the time. And every time it does, there’s a fun misadventure and cautionary tale lurking somewhere behind the scenes. This is that story for the 1987 live-action He-Man movie Masters of the Universe.

How Did This Get Made is a companion to the podcast  How Did This Get Made  with  Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas  and  June Diane Raphael  which focuses on movies so bad they are amazing. This regular feature is written by  Blake J. Harris , who you might know as the writer of  the book  Console Wars , soon to be a motion picture  produced by  Seth Rogen  and  Evan Goldberg .

Synopsis: After seizing control of Planet Eterernia’s coveted Castle Grayskull, evildoer Skeletor (Frank Langella) prepares to vanquish his heroic, larger-than-life arch-nemesis: He-Man (Dolph Lundgren). But moments before delivering the fatal blow, a cosmic key unexpectedly transports He-Man and his valiant cronies to Earth, where a larger battle with galactic consequences ensues.

Master of the Universe (MotU) was a Twilight Saga fanfiction that evolved into the Fifty Shades trilogy. It was written by  EL James  under the pen name  Snowqueens Icedragon .

In most instances, the personality traits, appearances, and familial relationships inherited from Twilight stayed intact in MotU (and hence, in Fifty Shades). Some characters' minor details were altered for FSoG so that they wouldn't be completely identical to their corresponding Twilight character. The following table gives the major characters whose names were changed from MotU to Fifty Shades. 

  • Taylor and Mrs. Jones are not married in the epilogue of MotU.
  • Bella was in labor a whopping 36 hours, compared to Ana's 15 hours of labor.
  • Sophie was 12 in MotU's epilogue, but 10 in the Fifty Shades epilogue.

Sony’s Masters of the Universe reboot is set to commence shooting this April to meet a scheduled release date of December 2019 . While a location is yet to be confirmed, rumor has it that Europe could be a potential destination after Sony recently targeted Budapest, Hungary for  The Crow Reborn.

The studio recently tapped up David Goyer as director and co-writer for the project, which it has been trying to get off the ground since 2009. Jon M. Chu ( G.I. Joe: Retaliation ) circled the movie in 2012, with McG then coming aboard only to step aside earlier this year .

Goyer — who has written on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel  and directed the likes of Blade: Trinity and The Unborn  — will be joined by screenwriter Lindsey Beer. Beer’s credits include Godzilla vs Kong , Barbie and she is also attached to the  Star Trek writer’s room for Quentin Tarantino’s project .
