Post by: GamerMan316 on July 24, 2009, 12:04:17 PM
Post all the new movie news, pics, posters, teasers etc. here
easier than creating a new thread for each topic, which i'm usually guilty of  :)

here's a few from the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" remake
Freddy will be played by Jackie Earle Haley who was excellent as Rorschach in Watchmen

Pirates 4 Shooting Next Spring

Drink up, me hearties, yo ho. Pirates of the Caribbean 4 will go before the cameras early-ish next year, according to a chat Coming Soon had with Disney's Head of Production Oren Aviv at Comic Con.

The Hollywood Reporter ran a story a couple of days ago suggesting that Johnny Depp would be kicking his heels for the immediate future, with none of his pencilled-in projects going anywhere soon. Or as they put it, he was facing "a landscape devoid of go pictures".

But Aviv seems confident that Depp won't be lounging around in his pants for too long. "We're going to shoot Pirates 4 in April and May of next year," he said, and went on to confirm that it will be the first of a hoped-for new trilogy, but that it will be filmed alone, unlike the back-to-back second and third instalments.

Intriguingly however, it does seem that Part 4 will feel like the start of a genuinely new series, since Aviv revealed the intention is very much to pare the franchise back: "It's important to me to scale it down, because we can't get bigger. [The previous films] got very complicated. I want to kind of reboot the whole thing and bring it down to its essence: just characters. It's important to get the story right."

No director is confirmed yet, so it won't necessarily be Gore Verbinski this time, and there will be no Orlando or Kiera. A relaunch on a smaller scale concentrating solely on Cap'n Jack is obviously a smart move for a franchise that was falling over its own feet by part 3, although Aviv wouldn't be drawn on whether we can expect substantial Sparrow back-story.

I thought Tim Burton's Alice was mental and had demons and sh*t in it.... then Disney got hold of it.

Looking forward to Pirates 4 though, JD is dreaaammmmyyy ! :-*

Resident Evil:Afterlife Is First Of New Planned Trilogy

Paul W.S. Anderson tells Shock Till You Drop that Resident Evil: Afterlife will be his 4th RE film, but not a sequel. Instead the series will be revamped and start as a whole new trilogy. Afterlife will have a bigger budget than the previous films and will see the return of old characters and new ones. The film will also be joining that whole 3D fad that decided to rear its head up from the 70's.

"I always envisioned Resident Evil as a trilogy of films, "he said. "And we've been very lucky where it's a trilogy where the audience has built and built. I wanted to kick off a brand new trilogy. I'm really excited we're doing it [in 3-D] and we're using the same camera system [James] Cameron used for Avatar. There are a lot of exciting things about this one. I don't regard it as Resident Evil 4, I regard it as a re-tooling and rebirth of the entire franchise."

Our guess is that Paul will take the Fast And Furious approach; by having a film that ignores previous events and rewrites the series history. This is good news for die hard Resident Evil fans. Maybe, just maybe we can have a RE film that doesn't stray so far from the source material. We're looking at you Extinction.

Robert Downey Jr Joins Due Date

Robert Downey Jr. has signed up for the Todd Phillips comedy Due Date, which already stars Zack Galifianakis. Yes, the hottest comedy star of last summer (in Tropic Thunder) is joining the hottest comedy star of this summer (in The Hangover) for what we're guessing could be a pretty hot comedy as early as next summer.

Due to shoot this September in Atlanta, Arizona and LA, the film sees Downey Jr. cast as a father-to-be who's racing to get home for the birth of his child, along with Galifianakis' mismatched travelling companion. Phillips describes it as a "buddy comedy without the buddies", so think Planes, Trains and Automobiles with birth instead of Thanksgiving at the end of it.

The script was written by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland, and revised by Scrabble-winning scribe Adam Sztykiel.

DJ Caruso Heading For Dead Space

DJ Caruso, director of Disturbia and Eagle Eye (and currently reported to be working on Y: The Last Man) has signed on to direct a movie of the EA sci-fi zombie horror videogame Dead Space, according to Variety.

Dead Space takes place on a mining ship infested by reanimated human corpses called Necromorphs. It's a third-person shooter using that over-the-shoulder perspective seen in the likes of Resident Evil 4 and 5 and Gears of War. Its Alien-like plot hook is that the zombifications began when something was brought back to the ship from an off-limits planet.

But the game is much more like Paul WS Anderson's Event Horizon, with the artefact triggering violent hysteria among the ship's crew, and the player piecing this back-story together through the discovery of ship logs and audio recordings.

An animated prequel to the game, Dead Space: Downfall, was released to DVD last year. A game sequel, Dead Space: Extraction, is in development.

The game itself is decent enough, but it's very obviously a tribute to the films mentioned above, plus any number of other sci-fi and horror sources, filmic and literary. The player's character is called Isaac Clarke. From Asimov and Arthur C. Do you see? Translating it from a game back to a single film is going to be a tricky prospect if Caruso doesn't want it to seem completely derivative.

Zack Galifianakis

I went to a Holloween party last year, but was too lazy to prepare a costume.  When I walked in the door, people spent several minutes trying to guess "who I was".

I said ... "Zack Galifianakis".  Fortunately, I was going throug a beard-phase at the time.  That, and all white guys do look alike.  :D

Pirates of the Caribbean 4, the inevitably-mooted sequel to the first three films, has been on something of a hiatus since director Gore Verbinski bowed out in April in favour of Bioshock. But now it may be on again, with Variety reporting rumours that Chicago's Rob Marshall is close to signing on to direct.

Marshall is, of course, currently finishing work on his mega-musical Nine (not to be confused with 9 or District 9) starring a cast entirely comprised of Oscar winners/nominees and her from the Black Eyed Peas. But this could be next for him, since Disney is anxious to get things underway before Depp heads off to film The Lone Ranger, another film with Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

Without Depp, of course, there's no Pirates (or no Pirates we want to see, at any rate). No other cast are confirmed yet, but we're guessing we've seen the last of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, judging by the last film's coda. So perhaps this will be the sequel we wanted all along: one that focuses on Jack Sparrow being himself. If they decide to dispense with plot and just show him getting drunk in a bar for two hours, we're there with bells on.

Casting's apparently begun for new characters for the series, and if Marshall can control his urge to cue everyone for spontaneous tap numbers (or, heck, even if he can't) this could be a good choice. So what do you think? Can the man who made Chicago make a good Pirates movie? And bear in mind: before Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Gore Verbinski made The Weather Man and The Ring, so past form is no real guide here.

Ridley Scott Will Direct Alien 5

Variety's story (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118006722.html?categoryid=13&cs=1&nid=2562) is more concerned that the screenplay is being written by Jon Spaihts, but the headline and the one-line explanation are enough to make us run around the room with glee: Ridley Scott is now attached to Alien 5 as director.

Commercials director Carl Erik Rinsch was originally reported to be the Scott Brothers' choice to helm, with their Scott Free Productions, well, producing. But there's no mention of Rinsch this morning. Were Fox unconvinced? Or did Ridley start getting more interested the more involved he became?

Whatever the circumstances, what does seem to be officially confirmed now (rather than just rumoured and hoped for) is that the film is a prequel to the 1979 original, presumably dealing with the events that led the elephant-faced Space Jockey and his croissant-shaped ship to crash on Giger World.

Spaihts' pitch to Fox and Scott Free was apparently enthusiastically received. Well clearly, since he got the job.  We'd hope Fox and the Scotts reaction wasn't "meh, that'll do". Prolifically busy all of a sudden, Spaihts is also involved with Shadow 19, Passengers,The Darkest Hour, Children of Mars, and George and the Dragon. But the Alien prequel will be his highest profile gig yet.

Hard to imagine a higher, really...

I love the alien films, I also thought that Ridley Scott did a fantastic job but something still fills me with worry and concern as the prequel will be venturing deep into unknown and unwritten territory.
It's going to come down to the directors vision or someone else having a stab at a story line that is a mystery for a reason (and adds to the terror of it all in a way) THIS COULD BE GOOD OR VERY BAD......I mean take Alien Ressurection for instance.......how badly could that have been mismatched in the story line just to crowbar another film out???

Also you will have now lost the main protagonist from the films and easily the most frequently named name in the (current) quadrilogy....

James McTeigue on Superman Reboot

It was recently reported that Warner Bros is working hard to reboot the Superman franchise and are currently looking to bring on a director. Some of the names that keep coming up are the Wachowskis (The Matrix, Speed Racer) and their protege James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin).

/Film had a chance to speak to McTeigue and asked him about whether he is in-talks to helm the new Superman movie and is being looked at to replace David Goyer on the "X-Men Origins: Magneto" film.

"[Magneto] was just one of those rumors that started out and I don't know where it came from or how it came up," he said. But when it came time to give an answer to the Superman rumor, he played it more coy. "You know... I would say... I'll keep you guessing, actually. It's good not to dispel every rumor, right?"

It is not much of a confirmation, but it is also not a denial. And if I had to take guess, his hesitation to answer the question means that he has already been approached by Warner Bros to helm or once again assist the Wachowskis.

Movie site, IESB, is reporting that Steven Spielberg is currently in talks to pick up Stuart Beattie's "Halo: The Fall of Reach" script to produce himself, under his Dreamworks umbrella. The site writes ...

"Spielberg is blown away by writer Stuart Beattie's take on the game in his script entitled HALO THE FALL OF REACH. This coupled with the fact that his Dreamworks umbrella is looking for a big tent pole to help launch their newly independant studio with distribution over at Walt Disney Pictures after losing Transformers to Paramount in the separation, it's the perfect combination."

Following the news that Peter Jackson and Neil Blomkamp's Halo project is dead in the water, this maybe Microsoft's best chance to thrust their Halo into movie theatres. IESB is reporting that CAA, who reps both Beattie and Spielberg, are heavily pushing the negotiations; and considering the fact that Spielberg shares a good relationship with Microsoft - he even appeared as part of Microsoft's E3 press conference this year - this may not be a bad shout.

We'll chalk this down as a rumour for now until we hear something a little more official, but if this plays out, it could be interesting. Very interesting indeed. It may just turn a few more heads.

bunch of movie news below

Ball Rolling On Rambo 5
Sly prepares John's next mission

There's no sign yet of the promised "John Rambo" director's cut of Sylvester Stallone's fourth Rambo outing, but Variety reports that work on Rambo 5 is underway, with Stallone again directing and (obviously) starring.

Stallone previously said that Part 4 was the final instalment: a similar cap to the series to Rocky Balboa. But he's clearly changed his mind. Apparently the story this time revolves around "Rambo fighting his way through human traffickers and drug lords to rescue a young girl abducted near the US-Mexico border".

The film will be produced under the wing of Nu Image / Millennium, where Sly is currently in post-production on The Expendables. Shooting, in every sense, will start next spring on what we're sure will be a sensitive examination of cross-border American societal issues. With awesome killing and maiming.


Get Ready For Bad Boys 3
This sh*t just got real. Again.

Bad Boys 2 may have been the sequel that nobody asked for, but we bought it anyway and it took a reported $273m worldwide. Its stars (well, Will Smith and Michael Bay) have risen astronomically in the years since the 1995 original, but The Hollywood Reporter says this morning that "all parties have expressed a willingness to return if a story can be hammered out".

Enter Peter Craig, who's knocking out the script as we speak. An established author of "darkly comic novels", and a graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop under the tutelage of Tobias Wolff (thanks Wikipedia!), he's recently been working on the screenplay for Cowboy Bebop, adapted from the anime and set to star Keanu Reeves as Spike.

Bad Boys was solid but unremarkable. Bad Boys 2 was an absurdly overblown, late-coming surprise follow-up, which mixed the good (it's sporadically funny and has a freeway car chase which knocks a similar scene in its immediate contemporary The Matrix: Reloaded into a cocked hat), the bad (it was two and half bloody hours long) and the ugly (another, supremely bad-taste chase in which morgue-corpses are strewn all over the road). It was so ridiculous that it was a key inspirational source for Hot Fuzz.

So what do we think? Is there any way that Smith and Bay will actually turn out for this? And do we want them to? Was Bad Boys 2 fun enough to warrant more, or have we had enough already? Over to you...


Rob Zombie Is Remaking The Blob
Space jelly for the Superbeast

The first one introduced Steve McQueen to the moviegoing world. The second one starred Kevin Dillon and had a screenplay by Frank Darabont. And we will soon be able to beware The Blob again when Robert Cummings, aka Rob Zombie, gets to work next year.

Zombie's nightmare finding distribution for House of 1000 Corpses seems to be long over, and he's now firmly ensconced with creative control (read R ratings, lots of nudity and casting his wife Sheri Moon) at Dimension, who have been trying to get a Blob up and running for a while.

Variety reports that Zombie is dispensing with all notions of big red blobbiness, should anyone be concerned that this idea seems ridiculous. "That's the first thing I want to change," he says. "That gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now."

So after Halloween and its sequel, why another remake? "I'd been looking to break out of the horror genre, and this really is a science fiction movie about a thing from outer space. I intend to make it scary, and the great thing is I have the freedom once again to take it in any crazy direction I want to."

The budget is set at around $30m (similar to District 9 and Cloverfield) and filming is planned for next spring. Rob has a new album out in November and plans to write the Blob script while he's on his winter tour. It'll give him something to do on the bus.

Zombie-related trivia: Bill Moseley, who played Otis Firefly in House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, and Z-Man in Halloween, played "Soldier no. 2" in the 1988 Blob remake.


Green Hornet pushed back to December 2010
Seth Rogen reassures us all it's for good reason

While it would appear that the latest news about The Green Hornet - that it's been shoved back from a July to a December release next year - is yet another bad omen, that's not how Seth Rogen feels.

While the movie is definitely being pushed back on Sony's schedule, it's been widely assumed that the move is to give the filmmakers - including director Michel Gondry - more time to get the thing finished in post-production.

Especially since it has yet to start shooting.

Talking to HitFix, producer/writer/star Seth Rogen has gone on record to explain. "We're both relieved and psyched about the change.  It gives more time for post, which would have been immensely rushed if we were to come out in the summer.

(http://mos.totalfilm.com/images/c/comic-con-09-the-green-hornet-car-revealed--00.jpg)

"It also affords us more time to promote the film, (now we can go to Comic-Con with more than a car!) and ultimately is a great vote of confidence from the studio.  We got the same date that movies like I Am Legend and Avatar are getting, so we're thrilled to be there."

So there you have it, folks - straight from the stoner horse's mouth.

Now we just want this thing to be in production so everyone can stop worrying...

New Poster For Bad Lieutenant
Cage and Mendes call New Orleans

There is a brand new poster online for movie mouthful Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans!

Nicolas Cage is said Bad Lieutenant, a druggie detective in love with a prostitute (Eva Mendes), who reigns over battered post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans.

We know it is hard to contain the excitement for Werner Herzog's coked-up cop drama, starring Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, and Alvin 'X to the Z Xzibit' Joiner, but hold it in, because the film isn't out until November 20.

30 More Days Of Night
Dark Days ahead

Bloody Disgusting have revealed that work is steaming ahead on a sequel to 2007's vampire graphic novel adaptation 30 Days of Night, which starred Josh Hartnett, Melissa George and Danny Huston in an adventure about a vampire attack in the Arctic circle winter.

Entertaining but flawed (Alaskan readers can correct us here, but when the sun came back up wouldn't it only have stayed up for a matter of minutes?) the original topped the US box office on the weekend it was released, so the most surprising thing about the follow-up, subtitled Dark Days, and again adapted straight from the comics series, is that it's taken this long.

It doesn't sound like any of the original cast will be returning however, and the director will be Ben Ketai, who shot a couple of webisode stories to accompany part one - original director David Slade is, of course, wrestling with a different sort of vampire on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. BD say that the story will involve a recast Stella (George's character) joining some vigilante vamp hunters to get revenge on "Lilith, the vampire responsible for the attack on the Alaska town." Yes, you may've thought Danny Huston was responsible, but it turns out it was all his girlfriend's fault really.

No word yet on whether original producers Sam Raimi and Bob Tapert are involved. The script will be by Ketai and Steve Niles, who writes the comics. Shooting starts next month in Vancouver; a change from the original, which shot in New Zealand.

What do we think? Another palpable hit, or straight to DVD?

Krueger Gets a Documentary

(http://www.411mania.com/siteimages/freddy-krueger_30120.jpg)

Members of the creative team behind His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th have joined forces once again to bring horror fans the ultimate tribute to yet another landmark slasher series, A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy officially began lensing on August 22, 2009, in and around Los Angeles. Starring and narrated by Heather Langenkamp, star of the 1984 classic A Nightmare on Elm Street and two of its sequels (1986's Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and 1994's Wes Craven's New Nightmare), this thrilling 90-minute retrospective promises to be the definitive look at the making of the iconic horror series and the enduring legacy of its wise-cracking, razor-gloved villain: the indefatigable "bastard son of a hundred maniacs" known as Freddy Krueger.

In addition to the exhaustive feature-length documentary, the two-disc DVD release of Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy will feature over four hours of nightmare-inducing extras, including the original documentary I Am Nancy, written, produced and directed by star Heather Langenkamp, which looks back at the last 25 years since her debut as heroine Nancy Thompson and examines the impact of the Elm Street films on young people's lives.

Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy will be released in the spring of 2010.

For fans of Freddy Krueger, this is news that will likely have them doing cartwheels. His Name Was Jason was an absolutely phenomenal retrospective on the Friday the 13th franchise and that the same people who did that are doing one for the Elm Street series makes me very excited. I'd be very interested to see the piece by Langenkamp, who I always thought should have had the chance to break into something outside of the franchise but never managed to do so. If you have any doubts about this documentary being great, just check out His Name Was Jason. You won't be disappointed.

Kane & Lynch film to star Bruce Willis



The producer of the Kane & Lynch movie has confirmed Bruce Willis will take a starring role.

According to Adrian Askarieh, speaking to Game Daily, Willis will play the first-half of the dynamic duo. The role of Lynch is yet to be cast.

"The script has been incredibly well-received around town," said Askarieh. "After Bruce Willis read it, he called it one of the best action scripts he's ever read, and Bruce is an expert in terms of action scripts because he's read everything over the last 20 years."

So what's it about? "Well, it's going to have the basic premise. But the details for the movie are going to be different. It's not going to have every sequence from the game, but it's essentially the story of a mercenary teaming up with a schizophrenic psychopath to save his wife and daughter." Wasn't that the plot of last week's Archers?

Kane & Lynch is due to start shooting in March. Locations are yet to be confirmed, but Askarieh's thinking "South America, Europe and possibly Louisiana". The director will be Simon Crane. He was second unit director on Tomb Raider and Troy, amongst other blockbusters.

Askarieh has much experience of this kind of thing, having previously produced the rubbish but high-grossing Hitman movie. He is also working on the big screen adaptation of Just Cause, another Eidos product.

"Just Cause is a great action-adventure spy movie, which is a totally different motif than Hitman," he observed.

"Hitman is a great assassin movie, Kane and Lynch is a great buddy action movie. So all these are first-and-foremost good movie ideas, then videogames."

Same.

I just figured it was simply a rumor because the character resembled Bruce Willis.  Sort of like the Gears of War / Batista rumor.

Jill Valentine In Resident Evil: Afterlife?

(http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/9/2009/11/500x_jillsammich.jpg)

Actress Sienna Guillory appeared in flick Resident Evil: Apocalypse as character Jill Valentine, but was M.I.A. in the third film, Resident Evil: Extinction. Rumors have it that there was a contract dispute with the actress.

Director Paul W.S. Anderson is currently filming Resident Evil: Afterlife and star Milla Jovovich tweeted this tidbit: "Valentine MAY be back." That also means she may not be back.

Perhaps, Guillory worked out her contract issues or perhaps the producers are bringing on another actress altogether to play Valentine.

Resident Evil Director 'Circling' Castlevania, Metal Gear Movies

Castlevania? Thought that movie project was dead. Apparently not, and apparently Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Death Race, Mortal Kombat) is "waiting on a script." Oh, and he'd like to adapt Metal Gear Solid for the silver screen, too.

That is according to Jeremy Bolt, who is Anderson's co-producer on Resident Evil: Afterlife. Visiting that film's set, the site ShockTillYouDrop.com says it spoke to Bolt, who "told us this morning that Paul W.S. Anderson is still circling video game adaptation Castlevania at Rogue Pictures and that they are waiting on a script."

"Bolt added that he and Anderson would like to adapt Konami's Metal Gear Solid for the big screen at Columbia Pictures," ShockTillYouDrop.com added.

You can check out Paul W.S. Anderson's filmography here (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0027271/) but he ain't no Bergman. Please note that none of this confirms Anderson has anything to do with the Metal Gear project.

nope, it's about as far fetched as the French having to cheat to qualify for the World Cup..... oh wait!!

Hopefully the Gears movie won't suck, luckily theres some good talent behind the camera.

Len Wiseman will be directing, he directed Die Hard 4.0 and Underworld, so action wise he's pretty good.
Stuart Beattie was down to write the screenplay, not sure if he's still attached though, but he also wrote Collateral, the 3 Pirates movies, 30 Days of Night, Derailed and was announced to be writing the on/off Halo movie too.
Chris Morgan is also on board, he wrote the screenplays to Fast & Furious, Cellular and both the Wanted film and game.

it's the cast that everyone wants to know about & as yet, still nobody has been named yet.

Modern Warfare 2 man to direct film
Activision Blizzard director heads to Hollywood

Modern Warfare 2 director, Keith Arem is set to switch mediums and head up a full feature film, it's been announced.

Arem will direct 'action thriller' Frost Road, which is to be overlooked by Closer producer Cary Brokaw along with Steven L'Heureux.

The film blurb reads: "FROST ROAD concerns a small coastal Eastern town which is suddenly and inexplicably devastated by an invisible contagion. A young man awakens from a car accident to discover he is one of few survivors in the aftermath of a mysterious outbreak.

"Somehow immune, he tries to save the remaining survivors from themselves, as he desperately struggles to prevent the deadly wave from spreading across the entire planet." Get 50 Cent to call in a few airstrikes, and we're in.

Producer Brokaw bigged-up Arem's move from gaming to movies, praising "...the incredible results that Keith achieved in Modern Warfare 2. The popular response to the title speaks for itself.

"There's a great deal that film can learn from the dynamic and immersive experience of games, in the same way the medium has drawn on graphic novels for visual inspiration," he said. "With FROST ROAD, we believe that we've harnessed the best of not just both, but all three worlds."

Do we sense a trend building? Will Cliffy B soon be heading up the new Bond movie?

New Resi movie delayed until 2011

Milla Jovovich, star of the Resident Evil films, has confirmed the release of the next instalment in the series has been delayed.

"So I think we r definitely pushing the film till jan '11," she wrote on her Twitter page. "Boo! But we can't rush it and hve crappy effects, so know it will rock!"

Resident Evil: Afterlife, the first RE film made using 3D technology, had been due to launch in August 2010. However, ShockTillYouDrop.com reported a delay was on the cards.

Jovovich initially denied the report, stating, "RE Afterlife is NOT officially pushed... For the moment it's still on for August." Looks like things have changed, however.


I'd rather they just cancel the movie completely, the first film was okay, crap zombies though & not enough gore, the other 2 were abysmal.  I especially like the comments about not having crappy effects, the first 3 had crappy effects, why change now?  ;D

This, for me, is HUGE news, the action master is back  :)

John Woo turning Stranglehold into film

Chinese director John Woo has confirmed that 2007 videogame Stranglehold will be made into a film.

"I forgot to tell you. We are going to make that into a movie," Woo told Cinematical.

Does that mean he's making another game? "No. I don't have that much time, even though I want to make one again," he said.

Stranglehold was a sequel to Woo's 1992 action film Hard Boiled, which revolved around hard-as-nails cop Tequila taking down a crime syndicate single handedly.

Woo's good friend Chow Yun-Fat reprised his role as Tequila in the videogame and will presumably take the honours again in a Stranglehold film.

Woo's recent film Red Cliff is Asia's most expensive ever at around $80m and was split into two parts; Part 1 was released in the summer of 2008 and Part 2 came out at the beginning of 2009. A trimmed version of part one was released in the US last month.

Woo confirmed that a full, two-part DVD release of the Asian version will be available in the US - presumably sometime in the new year.

Tekken movie poster teased on official Japanese site

Film blog Twitch has spotted the teaser poster for the upcoming Tekken movie on the official Warner Bros. Japan site for the film. We don't want to be overly cynical, but we've had our hearts broken so many times before that it's hard to get excited for any video game-based films -- no matter how spot-on Wushu martial artist Jon Foo looks as Tekken's Jin Kazama.

You know what else we're not fans of? The complete lack of Panda in the teaser poster (check it out after the break). We don't care if the character doesn't appear in the series until the third game, if we don't see an upright Panda punching someone in the face, there's no telling how upset we'll be.

Cameron: Avatar smoking is criticising gamers.
 James Cameron has defended criticism of smoking in his latest film Avatar by suggesting it's a negative comment on gamers.
After anti-smoking groups criticised the fact that Sigourney Weaver's character smokes in the film - Scenemsoking.org has given Avatar a "black lung" rating - Cameron was quick to defend it as a 'negative comment' on gamers.

"She's rude, she swears, she drinks, she smokes," Cameron explains. "Also, from a character perspective, we were showing that Grace doesn't care about her human body, only her avatar body, which again is a negative comment about people in our real world living too much in their avatars, meaning online and in video games."

So there you have it. The reason Sigourney Weaver's character smokes is she cares more about her avatar than she does about herself, just like gamers. But presumably not gamers playing this game.

Real Answer:     "She's rude, she swears, she drinks, she smokes ... because she's badass like that."



But that of course would get a negative response from the media.  Fortunately, "gamers" are an easy scapegoat.

New Resident Evil Movie Release Moved *Again*

(http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/9/2010/01/500x_alicetummy.jpg)

Originally, the upcoming Resident Evil film, subtitled "Afterlife", was penciled in for August 27, 2010. Then there were rumors, which the film's star Milla Jovovich denied, that the movie would be released in January 2011.

Then it actually got delayed. The RE flick was then scheduled to go up against MGM's upcoming horror film Cabin in the Woods. This would have meant digital 3D screens (both movies are 3D) would have been split.

The reason for the push was the extra time needed in post production for the movie's special effects. However, it now appears that Afterlife director Paul W.S. Anderson won't need extra time for the effects, and the movie is now on for September 10th.

The previous two Resident Evil movies were released in September as well.


The first 3 films were absolutely awful, cancelling the 4th movie completely would be a better idea  ;D

The U.S. loves Ricky Gervais.

Over the past few weeks, there's been a quasi Civil War between late night hosts Conan O'Brien and Jay Leno regarding NBC contracts, scheduling, etc.

Last week, Ricky Gervais was a guest on Conan O'Brien's show and he threw a barrel of gas to that fire.  I love that he approaches sensitive topics with a I-don't-give-a-f*** attitude, but with calculated surgical precision.  It's art.

Mass Effect movie a possibility, says BioWare

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/01/masseffectatthedrive-in580px.jpg)

"Huh?" you say, confused by the very prospect of the Mass Effect trilogy getting the film treatment. Dont' worry buddy, we're right there with you. The BioWare space RPG may be getting just that, though, according to Mass Effect 2 project director Casey Hundson in a recent interview with MTV. "Obviously we have a tremendous amount of interest from people in Hollywood to make a major motion picture about Mass Effect," Hudson said.

Thankfully, Hudson followed up his statement with a conditional position for the possibility of a Mass Effect film. "The most important thing for us is, we don't just want to see a movie get made ... we want to see a great movie get made, if it's going to get done at all." We have but one humble request should a movie ever be made of the series: it goes fully 3D -- if only for text trees in the third dimension.

Typical Academy votes mate, they always ignore stuff like that, i'm still amazed Johnny Depp got a nom for Pirates, sure he's great in those films but the Academy rarely give nominations for action comedy roles.  Downey Jr. did get a nomination for Tropic Thunder & at least he won a Golden Globe for Sherlock Holmes.

I felt the same way.  I got tired of Jude Law a few years ago when he was in every damn movie that released.

Well-placed career move playing a 'supporting' role, and playing it well in Sherlock.  Great movie.

Sherlock Holmes was great, Downey Jr. is excellent as always, Jude Law is actually very good as Watson and I don't like him normally, the supporting cast are okay at best.  It's Guy Ritchie's most accomplished film so far, but for me it's not his best, Lock Stock still has has that spot, i'd put this on a par with Snatch, much better than Revolver & Rocknrolla, we won't talk about Swept Away  ;D

Up is a great movie, the montage at the start where we see the life of Carl & Ellie is as good as anything you'll see in a live action movie, great story telling, the rest is classic Pixar, unlike Dreamworks, they never make a bad movie and long may it continue.  I don't think it'll be long before a Pixar film actually wins Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

It's funny that the "good" Corey ended up dying from a drug overdose, and the "bad" Corey (Feldman) ended up getting married and having a healthy life.

Jamie Foxx in play for 'Kane & Lynch'
Actor wraps up deal to join videogame adaptation

Jamie Foxx is wrapping up talks to get locked and loaded to play the rage-prone killer James Lynch in Lionsgate and Millennium Films' bigscreen adaptation of the Eidos videogame "Kane and Lynch: Dead Men."

Bruce Willis has long been attached to play Kane in the actioner, first joining to portray the mercenary Adam "Kane" Marcus, in 2008.

Production is expected to start in August, with Simon Crane, a second-unit director and stunt coordinator, making his feature directing debut.

In the game and film, Kane and Lynch are forced to pair up and have 72 hours to travel the world and recover a doomsday device before Kane's kidnapped wife and daughter are killed by the criminals who broke them out of prison.

Project is penned by Kyle Ward, who also adapted Sony's videogame "Uncharted" as a feature for the studio.

Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter will produce with David Willis, Stephen Eads and Millennium.

Askarieh and Alter were also producers on Eidos' adaptation of "Hitman," which grossed $100 million for 20th Century Fox. A sequel is in the works, with Ward scripting. The producers are also developing "Jonny Quest" at Warner Bros.

Foxx most recently co-starred in "Valentine's Day" and "Law Abiding Citizen."

The original "Kane & Lynch" game, released in 2007, generated attention for its gritty cinematic action sequences and was clearly targeted at more adult gamers with its over-the-top violence and strong use of profanity. The game sold a respectable 1 million copies.

While it didn't sell as well as hoped, IO Interactive, now part of Square Enix, is putting the finishing touches on "Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days," that Eidos will release on August 24.

I kind of agree with Neato, the trailer felt a lot like a remake of the original with an original member of cast (possibly) and the stereotypes being filled up all over again.

Will Ferrell says Anchorman 2 on hold

'Anchorman 2' has been put on hold.

Will Ferrell - the star of the first movie, 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' - has revealed plans for a sequel to the comedy movie have been halted because the director can't get the original cast back together.

Will told Zoo magazine: "I thought we were doing it. I was told it was happening and now I've heard it's going to be too hard to get everyone together.

"Hopefully the director Adam McKay will be able to talk to all the guys individually and see if we can figure it out."

The first movie saw comedic performances from Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner, which were all met with critical acclaim.

Although Will is keen to shoot a sequel he is worried any follow-up won't be able to match the 2004 original - which told the story of Will's character Ron Burgundy, a 1970s news presenter whose position of power is challenged by ambitious reporter Veronica Corningstone, played by Christina Applegate.

He said: "We don't think we can make it as good. It would be really fun to do, so we might just try to make the craziest sequel you've ever seen. It could be terrible, but if they're going to pay us to do it, then why not, right?"

Will has a number of projects in the pipeline over the next two years, including 'The Other Guys' with Samuel L. Jackson and animated comedy 'Megamind' with Brad Pitt and Tina Fey.


Anchorman Sequel? - They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.   ;D

Robert Culp Dies, I Spy's Other Secret Agent Man

(http://www.tvcrazy.net/tvclassics/wallpaper/oldshows/greatest-american/robert-culp.jpg)

Long before Phylicia Rashad came into the picture, it was Robert Culp  who played Bill Cosby's other half.

Culp, who teamed with Cosby in the 1965-68 secret-agent series I Spy, died Wednesday after suffering a heart attack while on a walk near his Hollywood home. He was 79.

After finishing his run as tennis-playing lawman Kelly Robinson, the veteran character actor then starred in the adultery-run-amok dramedy Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice in 1969.

Though he's known to younger audiences today as Patricia Heaton's dad on Everybody Loves Raymond, but he made his mark on the small screen in a number of cop and crime-themed series, from I Spy to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. to Columbo to The Greatest American Hero, racking up four Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe nod along the way.

Culp is also a member of the club of actors who have played the president of the United States on the silver screen, having occupied the Oval Office in The Pelican Brief.  He also provided the voice for Dr Wallace Breen in Half Life 2.

'Percy Jackson' star Logan Lerman frontrunner to be the new 'Spider-Man'

(http://images.hitfix.com/photos/365512/LoganLermanThief_article_story_main.jpg)

The search for the new "Spider-Man" appears to be over.

HitFix has exclusively learned that Logan Lerman is first choice for Sony Pictures and the clear frontrunner to replace Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker in the reboot of the blockbuster franchise.  A source close to the production tells HitFix Lerman is "almost 100% locked" but not in contract negotiations for the role yet.

Marc Webb ("500 Days of Summer") is directing the new untitled "Spider-Man" which is being written by James Vanderbilt ("Zodiac," "The Losers") and is meant to be a more teen-friendly incarnation, taking Peter Parker back to his early days of balancing girl trouble, homework, and crimefighting.  The new film is expected to begin production later this year for a July 3, 2012 release.

Maguire, co-star Kristen Dunst and director Sam Raimi were expected to continue their version of the wall-crawler's adventures until Raimi bowed out after creative differences with the studio earlier this year.  At that time, Sony Pictures decided to re-cast the film and move in a new direction, and had already been developing a reboot script as a contingency plan.

Lerman beats out rumored contenders Anton Yelchin, Jesse Eisenberg, Patrick Fugit and Johnny Simmons.

The 18-year-old Los Angeles native is best known for his role as Percy in February's hit "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief."  His other credits include "Gamer," "My One and Only," "Bill," "3:10 to Yuma," "The Number 23" and the TV series "Jack & Bobby" where he played Bobby.  Lerman got his start in two Mel Gibson films "What Women Want" and "The Patriot" at the young age of 8.

The attention focused on the casting of this role is not surprising when one considers that, historically, one of the reasons "Gone With the Wind was a phenomenon when it was released in 1939 was the deep investment that the audience already had in the characters thanks to the popularity of the book.  Mega-producer David O. Selznick made canny use of the the casting process to hype the film, and the search to find the right Scarlett O'Hara and the right Rhett Butler was international news for a full year.

These days, it seems that the search for each new superhero has become a major sport for outlets that cover entertainment news, no doubt because modern audiences have a major investment in seeing these characters done right.  When Sony Pictures decided to reboot "Spider-Man," speculation began immediately, and Lerman was one of the early names bandied about.  At the time, those conversations were premature, but it appears that the process has brought Sony back around to the young actor, and now he is poised to wear the familiar red-and-blue costume after all.

Capcom Keeps Resident Evil Film Director In The Dark

Paul W.S. Anderson is responsible for bringing Resident Evil to the silver screen. He writes, produces and/or directs the films. You'd think someone like that would have the inside track on the games. Nope.

"Talking to Capcom, Capcom's so funny," the filmmaker tells website ShockTillYouDrop.com. "It's like every time I go to Japan and meet Capcom it is like going to see the Umbrella Corporation because you ask them things and they won't give you a straight answer about anything."

(And you wonder why the movies are so different from the games!)

"It's like I kind of knew they would tell me that Wesker was in the game, kind of, but they would never really confirm it," he adds. "Then, sure enough, he was the main villain and he was the main villain in the movie as well."

There were other kwinky-dinks as well. "Completely by coincidence, a large chunk of this movie takes place on a big ship and there was the ship from Resident Evil 5," he says. We had the dogs in already. We have an awful lot of stuff that they had already kinda put into Resident Evil 5."

What Anderson then did was go through the game and make sure it was "more in line" with the imagery from Resident Evil 5, because he thought the title was fantastic. "I mean," he says, "I thought it kind of reinvented the video game franchise and I wanted to take a lot of it, frankly kind of like, steal from it and put it in the movie."


Capcom shouldn't have let this poor excuse for a director completely screw up what could have been a great movie franchise, oh well, too late now, apparantly Resi 5 reinvented the franchise, Resi 4 (superior to 5) did that 4 years prior mate, proof that Anderson knows as much about video games as he does the art of direction, retard.   ;D

New Bond film 'suspended indefinitely'

(http://web.orange.co.uk/images/ice/film/daniel_craig.jpg)

 Production on the as-yet-untitled 23rd Bond film has been put on hold due to uncertainty over the future of the MGM studio.

The film had been set for release in 2011 or 2012.

But producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said work on the film has been "suspended indefinitely."

Daniel Craig, who was set to play 007 for the third time, said: "I have every confidence in Barbara and Michael's decision and look forward to production resuming as quickly as possible."

Craig is currently on location in Toronto filming Dream House with Rachel Weisz.

Wilson and Broccoli, of EON Productions, said: "Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio, we have suspended development on Bond 23 indefinitely.

"We do not know when development will resume and do not have a date for the release of Bond 23."

No not really, just not a fan of studios sticking the 3D tag on crap movies to try and drum up more box office and because of Avatar's success we'll have to put up with 3D on everything for quite some time.  I'm about as keen on 3D movies as I am motion controls in gaming, waste of time.

Personally, I agree.

All of my friends thought it was funny.  They quoted it constantly.  I remember watching it with them for the first time, and being the only one in the room not laughing, which is really strange since we all find the same things funny.

I think there is just something very micro-niche about Anchorman's humor that you either love or just don't get.

I especially find Will Farrell funny, despite his movie flops.  Here's a clip I saw on 30 Rock a few days ago that nearly made me pee my pants.

(http://images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/20090121/425.darkknight.bale.christian2.lc.012109.jpg)

Same bat channel, new bat time.

Warner Bros. isn't about to let little detals like no title, no production start date and no locked-down plot stop it from setting up a tentpole, as the studio today announced a July 20, 2012, release date for the third installment of the rebooted Batman franchise.

Christian Bale will be back in the cowl under the direction of Christopher Nolan.

With the release date now set, Nolan is currently hashing out a story for the Dark Knight followup, which already faces some steep competition. Also headed to the big screen in 2012: The Avengers (May 4), Battleship (May 25), Star Trek 2 (June 29), and what will likely be the Bat's biggest competition: the Spider-Man reboot's reboot (July 3).

Comic geeks, get ready.

Kane & Lynch movie poster seen at Cannes

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/05/kanelynch51110.jpg)

The Kane & Lynch movie project appears to be moving smoothly -- it's to the "poster" stage already. Proving beyond a doubt that the casting is a "done deal"(as tweeted by writer  Kyle Ward), Empire spotted a Kane & Lynch movie poster with billing for both Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx at the Cannes Film Festival. This poster covers the entrance to the Majestic Hotel, making it look a bit more like the Tacky Hotel.

According to Empire, the poster gives the film a 2011 date, but we don't see it. Perhaps it's behind that inconsiderately placed luggage cart.

Romero goes Deep Red
Director set to remake Argento's classic in 3D

George A Romero is in final talks to helm a 3D English language remake of Dario Argento's cult classic Deep Red.

The original, which followed a musician who becomes involved in investigating a series of grisly murders, is considered by many the film that established Argento's presence internationally.

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/r/romero-goes-deep-red-420-75.jpg)

But Argento diehards shouldn't worry too much about the remake's loyalty to its source - the script's been penned by Argento's brother and frequent producer Claudio Argento.

Argento himself will not be involved in the remake, despite having previously collaborated with Romero on Dawn Of The Dead and Two Evil Eyes.

Shooting is set to begin this autumn in Canada, with The Little Company handling pre-sales in Cannes.

John Carpenter Heads For Fangland
Fresh souls for the master

Wherever he's been, he seems to be back. Straight from finishing up post-production on The Ward, John Carpenter will jump into the vampire flick Fangland. It's like he was never away.

To be fair, he's not been entirely AWOL since Ghosts of Mars in 2001. There were a couple of solid entries in HBO's Masters of Horror series along the way, and some producer credits on remakes of some of his finest moments. But two new proper features in two years is very welcome Big News from the director of Halloween, The Fog, Escape From New York and The Thing.

Fangland itself is a modern-day reworking of Dracula, which involves US news producer Evangeline Harker heading off to Transylvania to interview arms dealing crime lord Ion Torgu. It doesn't go well for her. Because, like, he's Dracula. It's been in development since at least 2007, and at one point had Hilary Swank set to star. There's no word yet on whether that's still the case, but the script is the same one as back then, written by Mark Wheaton (Friday 13th, The Messengers).

The film is based on the novel by John Marks, who used to produce the CBS news show 60 Minutes. Given that John Carpenter's Vampires was also based on a novel (by John Steakley) and bore very little relation to it, that's not necessarily significant intel. But Marks' book, as well as being a clever and visceral horror, is a pretty sharp media satire, which might be why the project caught the wilfully anti-establishment Carpenter's eye.

No hints yet of start dates or projected releases, or what's happened to Carpenter's The Riot (aka Scared Straight), which was set to star Nicolas Cage. But The Ward, featuring Mandy Lane's Amber Heard, should be out in the autumn.

New Mortal Kombat Movie? (http://kotaku.com/5558339/if-this-is-the-next-mortal-kombat-movie-sign-us-up)

Pretty cool video in the link, Michael Jai White as Jax and Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade and what looks like Rick Yune as Scorpion.  Worth a look.

F***ing sweet!

Looks like Mortal Kombat is getting the 'Watchmen' treatment.  Very promising.




ps.  I actually liked the old MK movies, especially the first one.  I even liked the short-lived TV series (live-action and animated).  Strangely, I was never really a fan of the games though.   ;)

It does though nobody seems to know much about it, even the actor's respective IMDB pages have nothing to do with Mortal Kombat on them, strange.  I have found this (http://chud.com/articles/articles/23984/1/IS-THIS-VIDEO-FOR-THE-NEW-MORTAL-KOMBAT-MOVIE/Page1.html) though on Michael Jai White's IMDB boards page.

Mortal Kombat video chap has film vision

The director of the live-action Mortal Kombat short that had the internet all aflutter earlier this week has said it was shot in two days - and that he has a vision for a proper film based on the beat-'em-up material.

Kevin Tancharoen is best known for directing music videos and the 2009 version of Fame, but he told movie site Collider that his original loves were karate, comic books and videogames.

"It took over a two-month span of time," he said of the short, in which Jax and Sonya Blade are seen interrogating Scorpion about a recent spate of killings. "I shot this whole thing in two days on two Red cameras that were donated to me with a group of friends who all believed in the cause...

"I know that there's definitely a handful of purists that have their opinions on the mysticism and the mythos of Mortal Kombat. But I do have an answer for that: this is just a prelude to what my movie version would be," he continued.

"Now, in a movie version, I am going to have that mysticism there, but it has to be done in a very tasteful way. I wouldn't like it too campy or too cheesy. I know this is a weird analogy, but it's the best one I can think of right now. It's kind of like when in Harry Potter, there's two universes that coexist with each other.

"There's the real world, and then you get on the train and then you go to Hogwart's, and that's where all the magic is. It was actually kind of similar in the first Mortal Kombat, too. They had to get on the ship and go to the island, and that's where all the crazy stuff happened."

Yesterday Jeri Ryan, who played Sonya in the short, explained that it was "made for the director to sell [rights-holder Warner Bros.] on his vision for a re-imagined MK film".

What a genious way to secure a job.  Get the internet to promote your vision before you even have a contract.  Far more effective than 'pitching' scripts.   8)

Saints Row film to launch with next game

THQ's executive vice president of core games Danny Bilson has said that the publisher intends to do a Saints Row film.

Not content with that, he hopes that it will launch on the same day as the third Saints Row game, which doesn't have a date yet but should be out before March 2012.

Speaking in a conference call this week recorded by GameSpot, Bilson said a "major filmmaker" will be involved.

At the beginning of last year, rapper 50 Cent said he was optioning Saints Row for a movie. Fiddy had his own game Blood on the Sand published through THQ.

Saints Row 2 is famous for being good and quite fearsomely insane, and also stuck two fingers up to Grand Theft Auto on a regular basis.

THQ has been pushing its "transmedia" efforts recently, having signed a deal to produce a two-hour TV movie based on Red Faction, which could turn into a TV series if successful.

Akira Movie To Be PG-13?

(http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/9/2010/06/500x_500x_akira.jpg)

Well, The Dark Knight was PG-13.

It has been confirmed that Albert Hughes of the Hughes Brothers directing fame will be helming the project without his brother. It was previously thought that Allen Hughes would be taking the lead on the project. According to the film's producer Andrew Lazar, he is not, and Albert will be flying solo this time.

Originally released in 1982, Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira debuted. The manga become a feature film anime, directed by Otomo. Akira changed the way many outside Japan thought about Japanese animation. Over the years, Akira has gotten several video game adaptations, including 1988 Famicom game as well as a PS2 title.

Instead of trying to cram all of 2,000 plus pages of the Akira manga epic into two hours, Warner Bros. is planning on releasing the film in two parts. Each part would cover three volumes of the manga. Albert Hughes, however, seems only interested in directing the first part.

"I'm not into sequels," he said in a recent interview. "I don't even know if I wanna be around for the sequel. I'm just focusing on the first movie."

It was also thought that the guys who wrote the first Iron Man flick would be adapting Akira. Things have changed, and scribe Albert Torres has been brought on to pen the script. He has a couple projects in development, but his only produced screenplay is Henry Poole Is Here.

I'd have the first Shrek film maybe, the sequels are awful.

I think The Simpsons Movie gets a lot of stick because it's basically an extended episode, it doesn't feel like a movie, still bloody funny though.

Just been sent a link for the new Paranormal Craptivity 2 trailer, if you haven't seen the first film, don't bother, it's completely and utterly sh*t, no scares at all and the new ending was only shot for the inevitable sequel, stupid bloody Spielberg, Dead Space is far more scary than that crap and you all already know my thoughts on that.   ;D

Anyway, heres the trailer for anyone thats interested.

I think the 'hype' killed it, because everyone was expecting some kind of Oscar-winning horror movie.  Fortunately, I saw it before the ad campaign took over the internet.

I also watched it alone, in my home, in my bed, with the lights off, around 2am.   ;D

SPOILER ALERT!



I've only seen the ending where the police show up.  Personally I liked how it ended with a very frank/realistic type of scenario.  It kind of gives you that feeling that "Maybe this could really happen?"

I searched online and read the descriptions of the other endings.  I like the sort of clever (perhaps unintended?) humor of the demon killing the girlfirend the same way the boyfriend threatened to kill the demon.

The "HEY JUMP AT THE CAMERA!!!" ending didn't really make sense to me.  Maybe I have to see it.  I understand it's an obvious setup for a sequel, but why the hell would the demon jump at the camera?  And how did they film him/her/it carrying the boyfriend's body up the stairs?  I really need to go watch this ending ...

I can guarantee, right now, without having seen the movie or any other footage other than what's in the trailer, the sequel will not be scary at all, if anything, as with 99% of sequels, it will be even worse than the crappy original.  ;D

Ok.  I just watched the "HEY JUMP AT THE CAMERA!!!" ending.  That's not at all what I had visualised when I read it.  Why carry a body up a flight of stairs just to throw it at a camera?  Why bite the lense of the camera?

Forget about the fact it's a movie, created by directors, writers, actors, etc.  Let's just say it is real, which is what the whole movie was going for.  If it was real, that ending would make it very difficulty for me to believe it.

The police ending is definitely my favorite.

The last movie that freaked me out a bit was probably Miike Takashi's excellent Audition as it's just a completely fucked up movie.
Ringu (The Ring) is my favourite J-Horror title,  just the use of simple music to build up tension and then showing just glimpses of things before the payoff, great direction.  Ju-On followed suit and ramped it up a bit with the freaky noise that the girl makes.
Old Boy is an excellent movie but the scene where he ties everything together is fantastic, anyone that has seen it will know what i'm talking about.  It's something mainstream Hollywood wouldn't really go near, hence my love for Asian cinema, always pushing the boundaries of taste.  :)

I could go on forever.   :)

Mark Ruffalo is in talks to play The Hulk, quality actor, more range than Norton but Norton was great as Banner/Hulk in the last movie.

Lots of differences of opinion on why Marvel Studios ditched Norton, he wanted too much money, too much control etc. etc.

This is from a Marvel statement.

"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks."
--Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige

So they are saying he's not a team player.

Norton classily responded on his official Facebook page with this:

I'll watch it, one thing is certain, no matter how awful this film will be, I guarantee it will be a million times better than anything involving Robert bloody Pattinson and his crew of poncy, sparkly, if only Blade was still around to wipe them out for good, poor excuses for vampires.   :)

Oh and here's a Dead Rising movie poster.

The First Look At The New Godzilla 
Are you ready for more Godzilla?

By using Augmented Reality at the San Diego Comic-Con, Legendary Pictures debuted a first look at the new Godzilla. Production for the film has started and Warner Bros. Pictures is targeting for a 2012 release. Comic-Con attendees were able to receive a t-shirt with the below image of Godzilla. When they were able to look into a web cam set up at the Legendary Pictures booth, the person wearing the shirt saw a superimposed animation of Godzilla's "atomic breath" shooting out into the air in front of them. This also included black smoke rising from the flames and the ground-shaking bellow of Godzilla's instantly recognizable roar.

Is This Zombie TV Show Tipping Its Hat To Dead Rising?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBiI6YRfWIY

At Comic-Con, a trailer was shown for the upcoming TV adaptation of the brilliant comic series The Walking Dead. Nearly every scene shown is lifted directly from the comics. Except for one, though it still looks familiar.

You'll see it come at around 4:10 into the clip. It's from early in the comic series, when hero Rick travels to Atlanta looking for his wife and son. In the comic, you see a tank in the background on one page, but Rick never clambers up on top of it running from the undead.

He does in this trailer. That's new for the show. And the imagery looks a lot like the most iconic shot from 2006's Dead Rising, from the game's conclusion as Frank finds himself...on top of a tank surrounded the by undead. It's not only the same scenario, it's the same vehicle, an M1 Abrams.

It's nice to see that for a game that took so many cues from other works of zombie fiction, Dead Rising seems to have had its own influence on the genre.

I don't know how AMC is going to handle some of the stories' more ... colorful ... events.  But from what I heard from Comic-Con, AMC promises to deliver what fans wants.

She's a lot better than some of the oxygen thieves we have in this country though, N-Dubz, Tinie Tempah, Jason Derulo etc. etc.  Music dies a little everytime one of their songs is played, it dies completely when Bieber is on but thats another story for another time.   ;D

Karl Urban Confirmed as the New Judge Dredd

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.cinematical.com/media/2010/08/karl-urban.jpg)

Remember that early report a few weeks ago about New Zealand-born-actor Karl Urban (Star Trek, Pathfinder, The Chronicles of Riddick, The Lord of the Rings) becoming the new Judge Dredd? Well, it's now confirmed. According to Empire Online, Urban has been tapped to essay the steel-jawed, helmet-wearing, hard-core dispenser of justice in a dystopian far future. Producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich confirmed Urban's casting at a Q&A session.

Here's an excerpt from my original piece about the Judge Dredd character's comic book background:

    For those not in the know (or the now), Judge Dredd first appeared more than 30 years ago in the pages of 2000 AD, a British-based, science-fiction oriented weekly comic book anthology. Credit for Judge Dredd belongs to writer/editor Pat Mills, writer John Wagner, and artist Carlos Ezquerra. In a dystopian future, uniformed Street Judges patrol Mega-City-One, dispensing on-the-spot justice, acting as police, judge, jury, and executioner. Dredd rides a cannon-powered, computer-equipped motorcycle, the "Lawmaster" (as opposed to the Lawnmaster, a completely different vehicle used for landscaping), a DNA-coded handgun called, appropriately enough, the "Lawgiver," a pliability inducing baton, and, most iconic of all, a helmet that covers his face with the exception of his mouth and jaw.

Even better, at least for diehard Judge Dredd fans? Unlike the first attempt to bring Dredd to the big screen with Sylvester Stallone fifteen years ago, Urban won't remove the helmet during the entire running time. That's right, Urban will have to depend on his exposed lower jaw, mouth, head, and body movements to convey Dredd's inner life, assuming he has one.

Here's more from Empire:

    "The main thing about Dredd is that it's a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago," said Macdonald. "Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we've got to get the tone right. He's not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He's going to hit people and it's going to feel real."

In my early report, I expressed doubts about a new Judge Dredd flick going this route. It might be true to the long-running comic-book series, but not everything that works on a printed or digital page will (or should) work on the big or small screen. That specific departure from the Judge Dredd character angered fans fifteen years. I consider Urban an above-average actor, capable of dramatic range, but keeping the helmet on might be asking too much of him, not too mention non-fans or casual Judge Dredd fans.

Pete Travis (Endgame, Vantage Point, Omagh) has been tapped to take on directing duties. Empire didn't mention a start date for principal photography (or a release date), only that shooting will occur in Johannesburg, South Africa, so stay tuned for additional information.

So what do you think of the news? Is Urban a good match for the Judge Dredd character? What do you think of Urban keeping the helmet on the entire time? A good decision or a bad one? And will you see a new Judge Dredd film theatrically regardless of whether you see Urban's face or just the lower half?

Star Wars Coming to Blu-Ray Fall 2011!

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.cinematical.com/media/2010/08/star-wars.jpg)

That sound you might have heard Saturday afternoon? It was the collective groan of Star Wars fanboys and fanboys when they (and we) learned at the Star Wars Celebration V (via IGN) that the Star Wars trilogies are coming to Blu-Ray next fall (as in 2011, not 2010) . Sounds like good, if not great, news right? True to form, George Lucas plans to release both trilogies as part of one set (meaning you can't buy them separately or by trilogy) and you won't be able to choose between the theatrical versions and the remastered versions (you'll get the latter, but not the former).

As with the previous releases on VHS, DVD, special editions, etc., Lucas is counting on "true fans" to purchase the Star Wars trilogies in a new format. That might sound cynical, but Lucas is right: some fans might complain about this or that preference or having to purchase both trilogies when they really want the original trilogy, minus the late 1990s' changes Lucas made to better match his vision for the films, but ultimately they'll purchase the rejiggered, remastered versions collectively or, at some unspecified point in the future, the original trilogy separately.

There is good news, though. As with previous releases, the Blu-Ray set will "utilizi[e] the highest possible picture and audio presentation, along with extensive special features [and include] documentaries, vintage behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, retrospectives, and never-before-seen footage from the LucasFilm archives." Fans were given a preview of things to come when Lucas premiered a never-before-deleted shot from Return of the Jedi of Luke Skywalker completing work on his new lightsabler before the attempt to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hut.

A fan uploaded the footage to YouTube. It's slightly murky, but worth it for the audience reaction on the soundtrack:

Are you excited, upset, indifferent, or ambivalent to the news? Put me in the ambivalent camp. While I'd love to see the original Star Wars trilogy on Blu-Ray, I'd like to have the option to choose between the theatrical and remastered versions.

No more extra scenes, please! I'd be happy with the special editions if they just put the Greedo scene back to the original, Han shoots first... PERIOD!

Still buy it though!

Never ever understood why Lucas felt the need to do that, what the hell was wrong with Han shooting first anyway? What was he going to do, let Greedo kill him?  >:(
Title: Re: Movie & TV News, Posters & Stuff
Post by: GamerMan316 on August 15, 2010, 01:03:27 PM
From hanshootsfirst.org and wikipedia:

George Lucas explained the change by stating that he wanted to make clear to children that Han had "no choice" but to shoot Greedo. This justification was unsatisfactory to many long-time and adult fans of the series. The ire of some fans led to an online petition demanding that the changes be retracted.
The primary objection to the revision is that it alters Han's initially morally ambiguous character, making his later transition from anti-hero to hero less meaningful; others claim that shooting Greedo first was justified, since Solo was likely to be killed by Greedo or Jabba the Hutt. The plausibility of Greedo missing from such a short distance is also considered questionable, and criticized as being depicted in an awkwardly facile manner.

'Kick-Ass 2' Officially Gets The Green Light

(http://www.latinoreview.com/images/upload/1283285651_image_kickasscomic.jpg)

It was inevitable that Matthew Vaughn's big-screen version of the John Romita Jr. and Mark Millar comic "Kick-Ass" would get the green light for a sequel. Today it's been confirmed apparently by Millar himself on a radio station in the UK who claimed that due to the wonderful DVD sales the sequel is a go.

It's not really a surprise when you think about it. Sure, it didn't perform incredibly well like people thought it would in the box office, but it seemed destined to be one of those comic book flicks that would find it's audience on home video. Since this is all up and running, now it's a matter of the studio bringing back Vaughn and the cast to the new project.

At the moment Matthew Vaughn is in the middle of filming "X-Men: First Class" for 20th Century Fox which acts as a '60s set prequel, out in theaters on June 3rd, 2011. "Kick-Ass" star Aaron Johnson will be appearing next in Sam Taylor-Wood directed film "Nowhere Boy". Chloe Moretz is in the middle of filming her role in Martin Scorsese's "Hugo Cabret" and will be seen in Matt Reeves' "Let Me In" this October 8th.


Woo hoo  ;D

If you thought the recent Street Fighter movie was bad, spare a thought for the King of Fighters movie, which is even worse.

Not that this is a bad thing. It looks so bad that it's worth a watch, if friends and booze were involved. Just...leave your feelings for King of Fighters - and Maggie Q - at the door.

Kevin McCarthy, Star of Original Invasion of Body Snatchers, Dies

(http://images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/2010812//300.invasion.cm.91210.jpg)

"Can't you see, everyone?! They're here already! You're next!"

Kevin McCarthy, who issued that frantic warning in the 1950s sci-fi classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers, died Saturday.. He was 96.

McCarthy was nominated for a 1951 Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Death of a Salesman, and employed in enough TV shows and movies to leave behind one of IMDb.com's lengthier pages (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002994/).

But no single screen credit of McCarthy's left a greater legacy than Body Snatchers. 

The low-budget, low-tech, black-and-white flick, in which McCarthy reaches the unbelievable conclusion that his small-town friends and neighbors have been coopted by space aliens and turned into unfeeling pod people, was named by the American Film Institute as one of Hollywood's all-time best sci-fi films.

Viewed as a product of its era's McCarthyism, but tapping into a timeless paranoia, Body Snatchers has been remade three times, most recently in 2007, via Nicole Kidman's The Invasion. McCarthy, a working actor to the end, cameoed in the 1978 version, also titled Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Just Cause film rights optioned

Hamlet 2 producer L+E Pictures has optioned the film rights to Just Cause, according to film trade mag Variety.

Apparently Michael Ross is writing the script. Ross previously wrote Turistas (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454970/), where, "A group of young backpackers' vacation turns sour when a bus accident leaves them marooned in a remote Brazilian rural area that holds an ominous secret." Amazing scenes, although clearly no Blood Surf (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0226919/).

Adrian Askarieh is reportedly helping develop the project before he and L+E shop it around film studios. Askarieh previously brought the Hitman film to the silver screen and is involved with the delayed Kane & Lynch film adaptation, so he has some previous when it comes to putting Eidos games in cinemas.

Just Cause 2 was released earlier this year and picked up 8/10 in its Eurogamer review. It sees slightly bonkers secret agent Rico Rodriguez trying to destabilise the island nation of Panau by... well, using his grappling hook to attach henchmen to passing aeroplanes and stuff like that.

At times it makes stuff like Crank seem eminently sensibly, and this is no bad thing.

This Custom Scott Pilgrim NES Blu-ray Case Deserves To Be Official

(http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/kotaku/2010/10/spvtw_nes.jpg)

Edgar Wright's adaptation Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is coming to DVD and Blu-ray on November 9, but sadly not in this fantastic fan-made case that accurately apes NES boxes (and cartridges) of old.

A seriously talented Scott Pilgrim fan sent word and photos of the Nintendo-themed throwback to Wright, explaining "I had originally intended to just turn the NES Cart into a hinged case, but as it turns out, standard sized discs don't fit in NES carts. So I modded the cart to just attach a disc holder to the back."

Head over to Wright's official site (http://www.edgarwrighthere.com/2010/09/30/scott-pilgrim-custom-blu-ray-case/) to see this classy custom creation in greater, but blurry detail.


Awesome!  :)

Snyder directed Watchmen and the very good Dawn of the Dead remake too, Goyer also wrote the Blade movies along with Batman Begins/Dark Knight so the new Superman film is in very good hands, should be interesting to see who will play CK/Superman.  Tom Welling would be perfect for obvious reasons but I doubt Snyder will choose him, Brandon Routh is apparantly out of the running, it's almost as big as picking a new Bond.  Zod and Lex should be interesting picks too.   :)

Joe Manganiello (True Blood) is apparently a big comic/superman fanboy and has been lobbying for the part.

Spielberg chasing Halo movie rights - report
DreamWorks Pictures said to be keen on a movie based on the Halo novel tie-ins

Steven Spielberg is apparently looking to secure the rights to make a Halo film.

According to Vulture, DreamWorks Pictures wants to bring the Halo universe to the big screen using the Halo novel tie-ins as the source material.

The report claims that by citing different source material to that used by Universal and Fox for their failed Halo movie effort, DreamWorks can avoid getting drawn into a legal battle over the $12 million in screenwriting and production fees the film studios invested before the project collapsed.

It's an unconfirmed report, but juicy nonetheless.

The Uncharted Movie Has A Director (Again)

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is officially coming to the big screen under the direction of David O. Russell, who has reportedly signed a deal to write and direct an adaptation of the PlayStation 3 action adventure.

The Hollywood Reporter says Russell is back on the Uncharted movie for Columbia Pictures after being attached early on, then reportedly dropping out of consideration. That back and forth status seems inline with Russell's sometimes combative history, which we hope doesn't affect Uncharted's journey to theaters.

Russell is perhaps best known for his films Three Kings, Flirting With Disaster and I ? Huckabees. His next project, The Fighter, is slated to hit theaters this year, starring Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg.

NYCC 2010: Adrien Brody Says Alternate 'Predators' Ending Would Have Featured Arnold Schwarzenegger

If you felt like the only thing missing from this summer's well-received "Predators" was a cameo by the definitive kicker of dread-locked-alien behind, one Arnold Schwarzenegger, you're not alone.

While promoting the "Predators" DVD release at New York Comic Con, Adrien Brody -- the man who did a stellar job assuming Arnie's mantel as premier alien destroyer -- told MTV News that he also felt there was a distinct lack of Schwarzenegger in the franchise reboot.

"I was hoping he would be in this film," Brody said. "It would have been great. I really was hoping." As you may have guessed, Schwarzenegger was a bit busy being governor of California, so that never happened.

That didn't stop filmmakers from writing Schwarzenegger -- who played a commando named Dutch in the 1987 original -- into the script, however. "There was a version we were going to do that had a different ending that it really would have been fitting for Schwarzenegger to be there," Brody said. "It would have been like him passing the gauntlet to my character... and the bravery of my character proven. That would have been just epic." We agree, and we're crossing our fingers that the rumored "Predators" sequel remedies that Ahnuld deficiency.

Would you have liked to see Schwarzenegger in "Predators"? Or were you happy with the way it ended?

Hobbit cast confirmed

(http://web.orange.co.uk/images/ice/film/martin_freeman_pa_photos.jpg)

 Studio bosses have confirmed that Martin Freeman will play the lead role of Bilbo Baggins in director Peter Jackson's forthcoming Hobbit movies.

The Lord of the Rings prequel is set to be filmed in two parts, with the movies due for release in cinemas in December 2012 and December 2013.

Richard Armitage (Captain America) is set to play Thorin Oakenshield, leader of the Company of Dwarves which sets out to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the great dragon Smaug, worstpreviews.com reports.

The Company of Dwarves will also feature Aidan Turner (Being Human) and Rob Kazinsky (EastEnders) as Kili and Fili, alongside Graham McTavish (Secretariat) as Dwalin; John Callen (Power Rangers Jungle Fury) as Oin; Stephen Hunter (All Saints) as Bombur; Mark Hadlow (King Kong) as Dori; and Peter Hambleton (The Strip) as Gloin.

Jackson said of Freeman: "Despite the various rumours and speculation surrounding this role, there has only ever been one Bilbo Baggins for us.

"There are a few times in your career when you come across an actor who you know was born to play a role, but that was the case as soon as I met Martin. He is intelligent, funny, surprising and brave - exactly like Bilbo and I feel incredibly proud to be able to announce that he is our Hobbit."

Gibson replaced by Neeson in The Hangover sequel

Liam Neeson is set to step into Mel Gibson's shoes and take over his high-profile cameo in The Hangover sequel.

The Braveheart star was expected to make his career comeback with a guest role in the upcoming comedy after a tough few months following his split from ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, who has accused the actor of beating her during a violent altercation earlier this year.

But his light-hearted appearance was axed this week following reports the movie's cast angrily objected to sharing the spotlight with the troubled star.

In a statement, director Todd Phillips said: "I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of (Warner Brothers boss) Jeff Robinov and his team. But I realise filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew."

Neeson has been approached to replace Gibson and he's finalising talks to star as a tattoo artist - a role which would see him reunited with his The A-Team co-star Bradley Cooper.

Neeson tells trade paper Variety, "I just got a call to do a one day shoot on Hangover as a tattooist in Thailand... That's all I know about it."

The funny film also stars Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha and Ed Helms.

Half-Life Fan Movie: Pretty Kids, Explosions Aplenty

(http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/9/2010/11/500x_combine.jpg)

Here's a new trailer for Beyond Black Mesa, a fan-made Half-Life movie that makes up in enthusiasm and polish what it lacks in subtlety and Gordon Freeman.

There's a little too much kung fu and pretty young people running around for it to feel truly authentic. Half-Life 2's world is a bleak, decaying one, after all. It certainly doesn't capture the "feel" of the Half-Life 2 universe like similar project "Escape From City 17" (http://kotaku.com/5152938/half+life-2-the-short-movie) did.

However, for a small group of friends, $1200 and two years' work, it's impressive stuff. Beyond Black Mesa is a short film that's been doing the movie festival rounds this year. There's no word on a more general release, but since the thing's done, it hopefully won't be too far off.

Wolverine 2 The Wolverine (http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/motion-captured/posts/darren-aronofsky-confirms-a-new-title-for-wolverine-2)

(http://leagueofcomicgeeks.com/media/library/images/wolverine-japan.jpg)

Quote
Earlier today, I sat down at the W Hotel in Hollywood to talk with Darren Aronofsky and Natalie Portman about their new film, "Black Swan," and we'll have those conversations here for you in the week before the film opens.

For now, though, there's one tidbit worth passing along from our conversation.  When Aronofsky was settling in for the interview, I mentioned to him that I had run into Matty Libatique the other night, and Aronofsky smiled.  "I saw that."  He offered up one correction to the information that we've run on the film so far, though, and as far as I can tell, this is the first time I've heard this.

The film that he's directing is officially called "The Wolverine," and there won't be a number attached to it.  In our interview, he referred to the movie as a "one-off," and he emphasized that the film isn't a sequel in any conventional sense.

It's an interesting move, and it certainly separates this from Gavin Hood's movie, and from the larger "X-Men" franchise in general.  Between this film and Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class," it sounds like any rules we've got in mind about these films and what to expect based on the first four films in the franchise are out the window.

Frankly, I like that.  Comics have always made room for different artists and writers to take these icons and bend and twist them and try different things with them, so why shouldn't the films be the same way?

Wahlberg takes lead in Uncharted movie

Mark Wahlberg has officially been cast as Nathan Drake in the forthcoming movie version of Naughty Dog's PlayStation 3 exclusive Uncharted series.

The former Funky Bunch lynchpin revealed the news in an interview with MTV's Multiplayer blog, stating that Three Kings director David O Russell hopes to start filming in the summer.

"David is one of the best writer/directors I've ever worked with," said Wahlberg. "The idea that he has is just insane."

As rumoured earlier this month, it looks like Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci are also in the frame.

"That's who he wants to write the parts for," Wahlberg explained. "I talked to Pesci about it and I know David's people have talked to [Robert De Niro].

"I'm obviously in whatever David wants to do but the idea of it is so off the charts: De Niro being my father, Pesci being my uncle. It's not going to be the watered-down version, that's for sure."

Should you want to eye up Wahlberg's suitabilty for the roll of square-jawed hero Nathan Drake, you can see him do his thing in The Boxer due in cinemas this year.

Naughty Dog, meanwhile, is rumoured to be prepping a third chapter in the Uncharted saga, with a reveal expected at the Spike Video Game Awards next month.

Just stumbled across this & thought i'd share it.   :)

Old newspaper clipping proves Vader spoiled the ending to 'Empire' 2 years before it released!

(http://www.themoviepool.com/media/k2/items/cache/2660be2b2df02c41fc17abdbfc676d66_M.jpg)



Everyone knows (even if you're not a fan) that the ending of The Empire Strike's Back, where Darth Vader reveals that he is in fact Luke Skywalker's father, was one of the biggest twists in movie history.  People were just so shocked and fans were left slack-jawed in the movie theaters.  Back then it was a tightly held secret and the director Irvin Kershner even went so far as to film an alternate ending, and it wasn't until James Earl Jones did the voice work, was the true ending revealed.  Now it seems like all of that was for nothing as David Prowse had already spilled the beans two years previously.

It's amazing the world we live in today.  With the internet, it's a simple matter of searching Google in order to find out every spoiler (hell sometimes the whole damn script) of a movie.  Directors have to be very careful these days in order to keep their movies secret, but even back in the 70s and 80s it was a top priority for these blockbusters.

That's why I find this newspaper clipping so interesting.  It seems that back in 1978 (a full two years before Empire Strikes Back was released), David Prowse, the man who portrayed Darth Vader in his suit, told a local newspaper about the shocking secret.  Now this is well before the movie began filming, and took place during a special event where he met with fans.  During the event he thrilled his fans by saying that "Star Wars II" would be filming very soon.

(http://www.themoviepool.com/images/originalphotos/69/19/fe395ea5bac05bde3d223c6d.jpg)

In the following interview he then said that Vader and Luke were really Father and Son.  So how an Earth did he know?  My best guess...he really didn't.  At the time, no one actually new, and the script itself didn't have the true line in there (that was in Lucas' head).  Prowse is kind of notorious for his wild statements, and more than likely he made it up on the spot in order to garner more media attention.

Being that this was a local newspaper and the Internet didn't yet exist, the news stayed fairly low key and thus the ending wasn't spoiled except for the group of people who read that paper. Either way, it's an interesting tidbit of information for Star Wars fans...and proof that even back then Star Wars had spoilers!

Actor Pete Postlethwaite Dies Aged 64

(http://web.orange.co.uk/images/ice/news/bskyb_image_15878724_400x240.jpg)

Pete Postlethwaite, one of Britain's best-loved actors, has died at the age of 64 after a long battle with cancer.

The star of The Usual Suspects and Brassed Off had continued to work until recent months while receiving treatment.

Journalist and friend Andrew Richardson said the Oscar-nominated actor passed away peacefully in hospital in Shropshire yesterday.

Mr Postlethwaite, who was made an OBE in the 2004 New Year's Honours List, starred in some of the most popular films of the 1990s and was once described by director Steven Spielberg as "the best actor in the world".

English actor and comedian David Schneider described him as a "national treasure" and a "wonderful bloke".

He received his Oscar nomination for his performance as Guiseppe Conlon in the 1993 film In The Name Of The Father, about the wrongful convictions of the so-called Guildford Four for an IRA bomb attack.

The Warrington-born actor, who lived in rural Shropshire near the Welsh border, starred alongside his friend and fellow actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Emma Thompson.

Other films included The Shipping News, Romeo & Juliet, The Omen and The Town, and he worked with Spielberg on The Lost World: Jurassic Park and slave trade epic Amistad.

One of his more recent appearences was in Inception, the hit science-fiction film directed by Christopher Nolan.

Mr Postlethwaite originally wanted to be a priest but then became a teacher. He began his acting career at the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool where he rubbed shoulders with the likes of Bill Nighy, Julie Walters and Jonathan Pryce.

In 2008 he returned to the Everyman to play the lead in King Lear, a role that he had always wanted.

Mr Postlethwaite was also a political activist who marched against the war in Iraq, supported the Make Poverty History campaign and starred in the 2009 film about global warming, The Age of Stupid.

He is survived by his wife, Jacqui, his son Will and daughter, Lily.

Impressive Half-Life fan film released
Beyond Black Mesa has Combine, Striders and... kung-fu?!

A Half-Life fan film, 'Beyond Black Mesa', was released over the weekend - and it's mighty impressive.

The team behind the film shot the entire project in their spare time, reports PC Gamer, taking seven film makers two years and $1,200 to make.

It looks and sounds the part, with Half-Life: Opposing Forces lead Adrian Shephard going about his post-Black Mesa business.

We can't remember the kung-fu and 28 Days Later zombie sections in the original shooter, but we won't begrudge what is an otherwise nicely done fan production.

Half-Life dev Valve's previously said the only way a proper series film could ever exist is if it made it itself. But apparently, that's not all that unlikely.

Fantastic film, it'll win best animated feature without a doubt, would be awesome if it won best film too, The Social Network will probably pick that up if the Golden Globes are anything to go by.

I have to go with The King's Speech. It was definitely the best film I've seen in some time.



Plus Colin Firth is dreamy.

Still haven't seen that but it's getting loads of praise, Firth is the favourite for Best Actor, i'd like James Franco to get it for 127 Hours but I don't think he will.

Henry Cavill - Henry Cavill Named As New Superman

(http://images.contactmusic.com/newsimages/henry_cavill_1197426.jpg)

British actor Henry Cavill has been cast as the new Superman for 2012 movie 'Superman: Man of Steel'.

The British actor has signed up to take on the role of Clark Kent and his superhero alter-ego in 2012 movie 'Superman: Man of Steel'.

In a statement, Henry - who follows in the footsteps if Brandon Routh and the late Christopher Reeve by taking on the iconic character - said: "In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognised and revered character of all time, and I am honoured to be a part of his return to the big screen."

An executive at Warner Brothers - the studio who will produce the movie - said of Henry's new role: "He's got an amazing quality. He doesn't look too much like Reeve and Routh but he's big and strong and he has a very modern feel to him. We're really going to try and make Superman as contemporary as possible."

The new film will be directed by Zack Snyder and released in December 2012.

Henry, 27, is most famous for his role of Charles Brandon in TV show 'The Tudors'.

Composer John Barry has died aged 77
Oscar-winner passes away in New York

Composer John Barry has died of a heart attack in New York. He was 77 years old.

The Oscar-winner is perhaps best remembered for his association with the James Bond series, working on the Dr No score with Monty Norman, before going on to provide the music for 11 further Bond films, including From Russia With Love and Goldfinger.

Some of his best-known scores outside of the Bond franchise include Zulu, Midnight Cowboy, The Lion in Winter, Born Free, Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves.

Throughout his career, Barry took home five Oscars, and was honoured with a Bafta fellowship in 2005. He was awarded an OBE in 1999 for services to music.

David Arnold, who is the current Bond composer, reacted to the news via Twitter: "I am profoundly saddened by the news but profoundly thankful for everything he did for music and for me personally."

Barry is survived by his wife Laurie, his four children and five grandchildren.

I trust Snyder.  I'm sure Cavill will make a decent Superman.

Despite Superman Returns being a crap movie, I still liked Brandon Routh in the role.  I don't know why they keep wanting to go younger with Superman.  If anything, they need to go older than Routh.

Scarlett Johansson for Uncharted movie?

Scarlett Johansson is the latest name attached to David O Russell's controversial Uncharted movie, according to a new interview with the director.

Discussing the role of Elena, Nathan Drake's love interest, with Empire Online (http://www.empireonline.com/interviews/interview.asp?IID=1179), Russell agreed that The Fighter's leading lady Amy Adams would be a great fit, before making a suggestion of his own.

"Oh I would love that too, I love Amy. I also love Scarlett Johansson; there's a lot of great actors I think might suit. Hopefully, we'll see how it works out with everybody who are being scoped to do that role..."

Russell also talked a little more about how he was approaching the character, explaining "I've cultivated her quite a bit and I think I've added a lot of dimension to her so that's all I'm going to say. I love the woman characters and the more robust they are, the more robust the movie."

According to recent casting news Russell has lined up Mark Wahlberg to play Drake, with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci playing his father and uncle. However, it seems that's not 100 per cent locked in just yet.

"I'd love Mark to be in it, I'd love Bob De Niro to be in it," he said, "I love the idea of growing them into a cinematic family; I think that's a really cool idea, but... I guess you'll have to wait until you see the script."

Back in December, fans didn't respond too positively to news that Russell was planning to veer well away from the story established by developer Naughty Dog. Perhaps his Best Director Oscar nom for gritty boxing flick The Fighter last week might encourage you to give him the benefit of the doubt?

WGA Awards give Christopher Nolan and 'Inception' their first major guild awards
Aaron Sorkin wins best adapted screenplay for 'The Social Network'

The surprise of the WGA Awards this evening was not that Aaron Sorkin duplicated his USC Scripter win in the best adapted screenplay category, but that Christopher Nolan won his very first guild honor of any kind in the original screenplay race for "Inception."

Nolan, who was shockingly left out of the best director race at the Academy Awards for "Inception," has previously been nominated numerous times by the Producer's and Director's Guilds for "Memento," "The Dark Knight" and "Inception" only to lose every time.  Thankfully, his fellow screenwriters ended that streak tonight.  It is something of a breakthrough from his peers and considering the complexity of his "Inception" screenplay is richly deserved.  Nolan also beat out strong competition from the writing teams behind "The Kids Are All Right" and "The Fighter."   He'll face a tougher challenge on Oscar night against "The King's Speech" which was not eligible because of strict Writer's Guild rules.

The other major film winner of the night was "Inside Job" for documentary.

Perhaps the most common complaint comic fans have with adaptations is the unnecessary changes made to origin stories.

This movie is a 100% unnecessary change to the origin of one of comic's most loved hero teams.  I'm surprised you're able to read this right now, since I'm sure the internet has imploded on itself.

Looks like Capcom's favorite Demon Hunter is headed for a big screen near you...Screen Gems, the studio that brought us the Resident Evil films has recently acquired the rights to the Devil May Cry franchise.

Good news or bad news, sort of difficult to tell right now but Kyle Ward is set to pen the script. Ward is currently working on the Kane & Lynch screenplay, which is set for release in theatres sometime in 2013 - so I wouldn't count on Dante rolling through screens anytime soon.

Hopefully Screen Gems takes its time so as to not muck this one up.

Fifth Resident Evil movie announced

Yet another Resident Evil movie will be made, Box Office Mojo reports.

Resident Evil 5, as it's currently known, will hit US cinemas on 14th September 2012, Sony Pictures said.

It's set after the events of the fourth movie, Afterlife, which made an eye-watering $236 million at the box office. It will, of course, come in stereoscopic 3D.

"Haters are gonna hate, but the franchise has its certain charms and I'm looking forward to what video game elements they decide to include in this new film," Capcom's jgonzo said on the Unity website (http://www.capcom-unity.com/jgonzo/blog/2011/03/04/a_new_resident_evil_movie_is_on_the_way).

Resident Evil 5 will arrive just two years after Afterlife, which will be the shortest wait yet of the franchise.

The films are loosely based on Capcom's zombie chew-em-up series, with characters and settings lifted out of the virtual world and plonked on top of new events for the silver screen.


Another guaranteed to be crap Resi movie, great stuff!

Holy crap.  I know she hasn't done much publically in years, but it's strange to imagine she's gone.  She's such an icon, you just sort of thought she'd always exist.

Watch these impressive Silent Hill and Dragon Age fan film trailers

It might seem strange to pair Silent Hill  and Dragon Age  fan film trailers in one post, but they just happen to share the same director, Leo Kei Angelos. Both projects are planned for release as complete short films later this year, and they already look impressive.

In fact, if the super, super creepy trailer is any indication, the Silent Hill inspired film, The Confined, just might turn out better than its full-length cinematic counterpart.

'Bill & Ted''s Third Excellent Script Nearly Complete

(http://www.nextmovie.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/BillAndTed.jpg)

Here are some of the things that have happened since 1991: the United States elected its first African-American president, Pluto ceased being a planet, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series and Justin Bieber was born. But the one thing that still hasn't come together? A script for the long rumoured third "Bill & Ted" film.

Until now, that is.

MTV News has a new exclusive interview with Keanu Reeves and no less an authority than Ted himself swears that within the next few weeks, a script will be delivered to him for "Bill & Ted 3." Probably. Maybe. Check out the Earth-shattering interview right here (http://www.mtv.com/videos/movies/639059/rough-cut-keanu-reeves-talks-bill-and-ted-3.jhtml) and find out for yourself whether we'll see it soon -- or if we'll have to wait another 20 years. Good thing those guys can time travel!


Oh and another thing that hasn't happened since 1991, Liverpool winning a league title!   ;D

Deadpool Has a Director

(http://files.g4tv.com/ImageDb3/266804_S/Deadpool-How-Will-New-Director-Tim-Miller-Fare.jpg)

Over the weekend, it was announced that Deadpool, the long-in-the-making solo film featuring Ryan Reynolds as Marvel's beloved, deadly-sarcastic titular "Merc with a Mouth" had finally nabbed a director in effects artists Tim Miller.

While the man has never sat in the director's chair, his visual effects resume is full of impressive titles like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Night At The Museum, X2, and Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes.

Yet, for a film in which enthusiasm of the fans, the character's very tweet-vocal creator Rob Liefeld, and even its would-be star himself are teeming with momentum, it does seem a bit odd that Fox would stick a journeyman director on such a potentially lucrative film.

Should we take it as a sign?

With Robert Rodriguez strongly rumored to be circling the project, conventional wisdom seemed to indicate that big name directors would be scrapping amongst themselves to nab this gig. (And for all we know, they may have.) Instead, in an unlikely development, an effects artists (albeit a very successful one) lands the coveted job.

Originally conceived as a spin-off of 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in which Reynolds played Wade Wilson, the ultra-talkative mercenary who would become Deadpool, the film has since been re-branded, declaring its independence from the storyline canon of the X-prequel. However, it's been a difficult process getting it off the ground, most notably due to star Ryan Reynolds' commitment to Warner Bros. in his other big superhero franchise, starting with this June's Green Lantern. The Corps may possibly get him locked-in to two back-to-back sequels. (At least one is guaranteed.) So, Fox has found itself with a choice to either move forward with someone else, or just let the project stew.

The appointment of Tim Miller might therefore be a sign that Fox is under no delusion that this film will hit anytime soon. No big-name director could possibly make a commitment where so many things are still up in the air. On the other hand, Miller doesn't have that problem and will have all the time he'll need to get to know the new workplace, figure out how the coffee machine works, and learn all the other in's and outs.

With Fox's Comic Book Movie Queen, Lauren Shuler Donner watching over him, he could parlay his technical skills into a palpable vision.

As of now, a script has been in development for some time by Zombieland's Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, so it was always clear that we'd be in store for a film that handles dark vibes with a tinge of irreverence, keeping in theme with the comics. Tim Miller's expertise could complement that atmosphere quite well, with intense, eye-gouging, over-the-top action that will fit into the things that make studio execs giddy. -- Most notably 3D, in which Tim Miller will bring a measure of expertise, since his background includes 3D artistry.

New Thor Clip Features Hawkeye Cameo

Another new clip from Thor has arrived. While we've already seen numerous footage from the film, this one has something special going: It contains the first footage of Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye. (Albeit in the dark, for all of a second.)

Don't blink ...

We're just under a month away from the official kick-off of Marvel's lead-up extravaganza, starting with Thor on May 6, continuing with Captain America: The First Avenger on July 22, and culminating with The Avengers on May 4, 2012. Besides Mark Ruffalo's new version of The Hulk, one of the new primary characters set to take the spotlight in the 2012 mega-movie is Clint Barton, aka master archer Hawkeye.

Did people de-evolve into apes?
Did ape aliens invade Earth and take over?

I'm looking forward to this.  Plus, I'm a little gay for James Franco.

China Bans Time Travel (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/109096-China-Bans-Time-Travel-Movies)

(http://whenfallsthecoliseum.com/wp-content/uploads/22-415.jpg)

Tired of the frivolous treatment being given to the serious business of history, the Chinese government has imposed a ban on movies and television shows about time travel.

Time travel is apparently all the rage in Chinese films and television these days, typically in the form of fish-out-of-water tales about modern folk transported back to the past, where they must adjust to life without the everyday conveniences they've come to take for granted while finding true love and resolving some previously intractable historical brouhaha. It goes without saying that hilarity ensues.

It also goes without saying that the government of China is not down with hilarity, especially when it comes to weighty matters like history. So at the Television Director Committee Meeting on April 1, which apparently was an entirely coincidental date, the General Bureau of Radio, Film and Television declared that no more history-warping dramas will be permitted.

"The time-travel drama is becoming a hot theme for TV and films. But its content and the exaggerated performance style are questionable," the committee decreed. "Many stories are totally made-up and are made to strain for an effect of novelty. The producers and writers are treating the serious history in a frivolous way, which should by no means be encouraged anymore."

There's a little confusion about whether all such time-traveling movies are verboten or just ones that don't treat famous Chinese historical figures with sufficient respect, although I'm having a hard time imagining how you'd reconcile one with the other anyway. I don't think you can say "this is my boomstick" in any language without it sounding most non-triumphant.

One of my favourite genres is 'End of the World'. I am Legend, anything with zombies, even Waterworld and The Postman (Kevin Costner).

I got 2 new ones to watch today, Carriers (Chris Pine, Star Trek) which is about a group who slowly turn on each other in the wake of a world ending virus. THe 2nd one sounds more interesting about a virus that ends the world  #) nawww!! it's about a virus that makes people blind, so everyones blind. Awesome twist on the 'End of the World'. Still i think i might watch Carriers first and i can get all man-crushy on Mr Pine  :-*

So who's in the market for a Fire Station and some possible GhostBustin'!?!

Ladder 8 in New York is apparently facing the possibility of closure, due to budget cuts. If Ladder 8 isn't clicking for you, it's the same firehouse used in the Ghostbuster films. So who's up for owning landmark that includes a substantial work area on the ground floor, office space, sleeping quarters and showers on the next floor, and a full kitchen on the top level totalling 10,000 square feet (or more precisely 9,642.55 square feet)?

I have to agree.  I know Star Wars basically paved the way for modern sci-fi, but it took me several attempts to actually find the will to watch them.

I'll take Indiana Jones (even Willow) of Star Wars anyday.   ;)

The Indiana Jones series worked up until "The Crystal Skull" -IMO, and it was actually ok, up until the end. Bringing E.T. into the mix is right about where I checked out. Maybe I have to watch it again to really appreciate it, but on first view it felt like it went off track.

But yes, Indiana Jones > Star Wars

Uncharted film "going back to the game"

New Uncharted movie director Neil Burger is going back to the PlayStation exclusive video game for inspiration.

The Limitless and The Illusionist director told Crave Online the new team is "starting from scratch" on the script following previous director David O. Russell's acrimonious exit.

"No, I haven't seen his screenplay on it," he said. "Mainly we're beginning from scratch and going back to the video game. Because there's a lot of cool stuff, actually, from the videogame, if you know it…

"It's really one of the most cinematic video games, and one that has really developed characters. So, you know, there's a lot of cool, really intense things that, if they work for the film's story, I want to use them."

Burger's comments are sure to enthuse Uncharted fans who were concerned by the direction Russell was taking the film before he walked out.

Russell's vision for the film would have seen Mark Wahlberg's Nathan Drake as a member of a family of antique traders that also included father Robert De Niro and uncle Joe Pesci.

Burger's vision, however, appears closer to video game developer Naughty Dog's virtual world.

Explaining the difference between Uncharted and Indiana Jones, Burger said the video game was very "now".

"Indiana Jones is nostalgic. It takes place in the 1930s, and the later ones are a little bit later, and it kind of plays on that nostalgia. Whereas Uncharted is very much up to the minute, of the moment. It's very 'now' and contemporary and it has this sort of rough and very intense feel that a movie like The Bourne Identity has.

"It's really up to date in its own way. The Bourne Identity isn't your father's Cold War movie and this is a very different kind of treasure hunt movie. It's very real and it has kind of an insane, wild feeling that comes out of the character; Nate being this con man and a bit of a hustler, living by his wits, ballsy and capable of anything."

Will Burger cast Nathan Fillion in the role of Drake, as so many fans wish?

"He's a good actor," Burger said. "I think there's a lot of really good actors who don't even look like [Nathan Drake] who could play it! Where we are right now is that we're literally starting from scratch on the screenplay, and I think that once we finish it, then we'll go to actors and see who's available and who's right for the parts. Whenever that happens."

'Voltron' feature film on the way! (for real this time)

(http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/i/2011/06/27/voltron_320.jpg)

Optimus Prime just got some major cinematic competition. Relativity Media confirmed Thursday that the studio has optioned the feature-film rights for Voltron, and will adapt the cult 1984 anime series Voltron: Defender of the Universe into a live-action movie. Voltron, for those who weren’t robot-obsessed children of the ’80s, was about a team of five pilots whose individual vehicles, called Robot Lions, could combine to form the ultimate universe-saving, available-at-Toys”R”Us giant robot, Voltron.

The new movie, which doesn’t have a director or release date yet, is being produced by Charles Roven (The Dark Knight), Richard Suckle (The International), and Jason Netter (Wanted). Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, who co-wrote Sahara and next month’s Conan the Barbarian, are penning the script. The movie’s announcement was made at the end of a Comic-Con panel entitled “Voltron Resurgent,” which also showed off the recently debuted Nicktoons show Voltron Force, an upcoming video game, Voltron comic books, and Mattel’s new line of toys. And now, with news of a feature film, it truly is a wonderful time to be an ’80s kid. As for the movie, just one request: Keep it under 157 minutes, please.

Expendables 2 adds Chuck Norris and John Travolta
Bulgarian studio exec spills the casting beans

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/e/expendables-2-adds-chuck-norris-and-john-travolta-63099-470-75.jpg)

The head of a Bulgarian film studio where The Expendables 2 is to start shooting in September has name-checked a few new actors who will be appearing in the film.
 
"Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, John Travolta, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke. Who else? Of course, Bruce Willis,”  David Varod, CEO at Nu Boyana Studios, told news website Novanite in an interview.
 
As well as adding John Travolta and Chuck Norris to the list of stars, Varod also talked of director Simon West in glowing terms.
 
“He is also a name. He is already here and has started working on the film,” Varod said, before adding. “I believe the sequel will be better than the first movie."
 
It was already widely reported that Jean-Claude Van Damme would play a secondary villain in the film, with Willis the main baddie.
 
Here's hoping Travolta also pulls villain duty so we can see more of what made Face/Off such a great action flick.

'Dark Knight Rises': Tom Hardy Talks Bane

(http://splashpage.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/bane.jpg)

"The Dark Knight Rises" puts Batman on a collision course with Bane, the almost inhumanly strong villain played by "Inception" actor Tom Hardy. So far, we've seen the character a good bit — okay, we've seen a lot of Bane — but even when Hardy has opened up about the character, he's chosen his words very, very carefully.

But the actor has opened up considerably a new interview, in which he discusses playing the Man Who Broke the Bat.

"I think Bane's f---ing cool so I'm really excited to play him," Hardy told Total Film. "It's not the guy in Joel Schumacher's film [played by Jeep Swenson], but it shouldn't disappoint fanboys."


One thing that Hardy's Bane has in common with his predecessor is a fearsome mask, though his is a considerably more realistic take, as is director Christopher Nolan's wont. On wearing the mask, Hardy revealed: “Any time you put something over your face, you’re going to adopt a personality and a physicality that has nothing to do with acting. It allows a performance to be free.”

Asked to recall how he landed the part of Bane, Hardy remembered a call from Nolan asking if he was interested in playing the notorious Batman bad guy.

"‘Hang on a minute. You’re asking me to come round the world with you in a Batman movie, playing a villain, and the only downside to it is I have to wear a mask? Hmmm, let me think. I’ll get back to you… No, I’m f---ing there, man! Anything you need.’”

Probably not the first, but yeah that's how Bane was able to surprise attack Batman in the Batcave and break his back.

(click to show/hide)

Typically muscles = stupidity in fiction, so it's common for Bane to be depicted as a dumb hulk.  But he's actually just as disciplined and intelligent as Batman, if not more so.  I'm guessing/hoping this is how he'll be portrayed in the new movie.

His ultimate downfall was his addiction to steroids Venom.  He's actually a sort of antihero currently, and even works with Batman on occasion.

'Eureka' canceled, sixth season plans dropped

(http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/i/2011/08/04/Eureka-show_240.jpg)

Whoa! Big shock on Eureka.

Remember how Syfy ordered six episodes for a potential final season last week? Well, tonight the network decided that not only is the series firmly going to end, but those final six episodes are not going to happen after all.

The 13-episode fifth season that was ordered last year, which includes a holiday special, is going to be the final season of Eureka.

Here’s a statement from Syfy:

“After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka. But Eureka is not over yet. There is a new holiday episode this December and 12 stellar episodes set to debut next year, marking its fifth season and six memorable years on Syfy. The 2012 episodes are some of the best we’ve seen, and will bring this great series to a satisfying end. We are very grateful to Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia, their team of incredible writers, and an amazing cast and crew who have consistently delivered a series we continue to be very proud of. We thank the fans for their support of this show and know they will enjoy its final season in 2012.“

Last week a Syfy executive and said he was “hopeful” the drama series about a town of geniuses would continue beyond an additional six episodes, but I guess the deal didn’t come together as parties expected. At least Eureka ran for a healthy five seasons and this move still gives producers time to wrap up the show in a creatively satisfying way. (I know, it’s like the TV series equivalent of saying, “At least he didn’t suffer,” but it’s still true!)

Contagion, as the name implies, tracks what happens when a lethal airborne virus spreads across the world, killing those who contract it in a matter of hours. Soon, the global pandemic is  causing chaos and the medical community is racing to try to find a cure even as society starts to crumble.

Soderbergh has the likes of Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow in the cast, with Damon and Winslet as the focus as a man whose wife (Paltrow) gets sick and infects him, and a doctor looking to find some way to stop the spread – until she herself shows signs.


Really like how this is shaping up, it's been under the rader for a while but I like the new posters so much I thought I'd post them:

At the core, the poster's still plastering actors' faces - horrible habit the studios have.

Not sure about the film. I haven't seen the trailer yet, but on the flipside, I like this poster a bit more:

Mac 'n' Cheese is an animated short directed and created by four students at the Utrecht School of Arts in the Netherlands. This roughly two minute animation took about five months to make, and about a bajillion peanut butter sandwiches.

Synopsis: When you find yourself running scared and running out of energy, there's only a few options left to outrun your opponent through the southern desert. Stopping at nothing, watch these two guys wear each other out and rip through boundaries hitherto unbroken. Enjoy the ride!

Andy Whitfield, Former 'Spartacus' Star, Dead at 39

(http://images.wikia.com/spartacus/images/2/29/Spartacus.jpg)

Andy Whitfield, who's impressive physque didn't hurt his lead performance in the Starz series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" has died in his home country of Australia after a battle with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Whitfield was 39.

In a statement provided to Associated Press, Whitfield's wife, Vashti, called her husband a "beautiful young warrior" who died on a "sunny morning" in the "arms of his loving wife."

Whitfield -- who was born in Wales and lived in Australia -- was a virtual unknown when he was cast as the title hero in "Spartacus," a hit original series for the Starz network that was known for  its graphic violence and sexuality.

Whitfield was preparing for the show's second season when he was diagnosed 18 months ago. And in January, the network announced that another Australian actor, Liam McIntyre, would take over the series' lead role.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Andy Whitfield,” said Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht. “We were fortunate to have worked with Andy in 'Spartacus' and came to know that the man who played a champion on-screen was also a champion in his own life. Andy was an inspiration to all of us as he faced this very personal battle with courage, strength and grace. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. He will live on in the hearts of his family, friends and fans.”

So sad.  I knew he was fighting cancer, but had no idea it had gotten so bad.

I saw an interview with Liam McIntyre a few weeks ago, and I think he'll make a great Spartacus.  But I'll miss Whitfield.

Warner Bros. remaking Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze 1991 action film 'Point Break'
Update of the 1991 cult classic being fast-tracked for production

(http://images.hitfix.com/photos/869527/PointBreakMovieStillSkydiving_article_story_main.jpg)

Though the 1991 surfing/action film  "Point Break" was only a modest hit theatrically, its pop-culture cachet has grown over the years, thanks lately to both the hugely-popular touring reality-play "Point Break Live!" and its status as a running joke in Edgar Wright's 2007 cult favorite "Hot Fuzz".

Now the Kathryn Bigelow-helmed original is being remade by Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment, with producers looking to begin the search for a director in the very near future based on a script by "Salt" screenwriter Kurt Wimmer. Alcon co-founders Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove reportedly secured rights to the original movie on the 20th anniversary of its release.

Kosove and Johnson are producing along with Michael De Luca, John Baldecchi, Chris Taylor and Wimmer.

The plot of the 1991 version had Keanu Reeves starring as as a rookie FBI agent who infiltrates a gang of surfers suspected of robbing banks. Patrick Swayze played the gang's leader.

“Who doesn’t love the Kathryn Bigelow original and its pure heart-pounding action and thrills?" said Johnson and Kosove in a statement." Kurt’s take infuses the story and characters with new twists and settings. We’re very excited to be in business with Kurt, and Michael DeLuca, Chris Taylor, and John Baldecchi.”

Added De Luca:  "’Point Break’ wasn't just a film, it was a Zen meditation on testosterone fueled action and manhood in the late 20th century and we hope to create the same for the young 21st!”

Nothing like remaking a film that's barely 20 years old...

Paramount Pictures is feeling the need for speed again.

According to Vulture, the studio has officially has made offers to producer Jerry Bruckheimer ("Pirates of the Caribbean") and director Tony Scott ("The Taking of Pelham 123") to develop a sequel to 1986's "Top Gun."

Christopher McQuarrie will pen the script and Tom Cruise is slated to return, albeit in limited capacity, as Maverick.

McQuarrie's rep confirmed to EW.com Thursday that the screenwriter had, in fact, been approached to write the film.

Fifth Resident Evil Film To Include Barry And Leon

(http://media1.gameinformer.com/imagefeed/featured/capcom/re5movie/re5film-135-610.jpg)

Director of the Resident Evil movies, Paul S. Anderson, has incorporated fan requests for the upcoming fifth movie, Resident Evil: Retribution. His wife and star of the series, Milla Jovovich, recently shared some tweets which reveal the new additions to the cast as well as the setting and biological threat.

Fans of awkward voice-acting and altar boy hairdos will be pleased to learn that S.T.A.R.S. weapons expert Barry Burton and RPD officer Leon S. Kennedy have roles in the film. Ada Wong is also set to join the cast, labeled as an “organization” agent. I'll leave it up to you to guess how many double-crosses she throws down. Jovovich also revealed that the game will take place in Japan, and that the Las Plagas infection from RE 4 will be the main threat.

This movie is set to star bizarro versions Chris & Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Barry Burton, Leon S. Kennedy, and Ada Wong.

Additional characters to the RE Film franchise can't fix the morbid fact that Mila Jovovich is still dragging the Alice character's corpse through each scene.  I was done with her after the first film when the franchise became more about showcasing her centrally and less and less about zombies and ripped any potential for horror out of the equation.

Ashton Kutcher's Two And A Half Men Debut Draws 28 Million Audience
Charlie Sheen's replacement pulls record figures...

Ashton Kutcher's first appearance on US sitcom Two and a Half Men attracted an astonishing 28 million viewers - a record for the CBS show.

Kutcher replaces Charlie Sheen, who became embroiled in a controversial war of words with show creator Chuck Lorre back in March.

The episode drew a demographic score of 10.3 - a truly astronomical figure, and double the average acheived during Sheen's final series.

Sheen had predicted the show would struggle without him, but those words now seem to be futile.

Proving to be a good sport, the 46-year-old watched the show at home with friends, Tweeting: "Surrounded by friends and watching the premier of Two and a Half Men. Odd... But cool..! So far a lot of laughs!!"

Sheen has publicly wished Kutcher the best of luck for the upcoming series.

From the first time I saw the trailer, I wanted to hate Zoolander.  Some of my friends saw it in theater, but I refused to go with them.  I eventually broke down and watched it on cable a couple years later, and had to admit I was wrong.  I laughed out loud.

Love the R Lee Ermey stuff in Full Metal Jacket, Kubrick very rarely let anyone ad-lib in his movies but saw Ermey's drill intructor stuff and let him run with it, thank god he did, great performance.

Ermey would be awesome as Victor Hoffman should this Gears movie ever see the light of day!

Thor's Jaimie Alexander joins Schwarzenegger's Last Stand
Arnie actioner shoots in two weeks

(http://collider.com/wp-content/uploads/jaimie_alexander_01.jpg)

Jaimie Alexander has joined the cast of Last Stand, working alongside former action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger.
 
Alexander only played a supporting role as the warrior Sif in Thor but she was more memorable than simply being the eye-candy in the Norse god's entourage.
 
In Last Stand it sounds like she has a beefier role to match her similarly beefy co-star, playing the female lead as small-town cop Sarah Torrance.
 
The plot sees sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger), Torrance (Alexander), plus cops played by Rodrigo Santoro and Zach Gilford forced to defend their border town when an escaped drug dealer makes a bid for freedom into Mexico.
 
Expect to see more of Alexander as her star continues to rise. And we don't mean when somebody hacks her phone. 
 
Last Stand shoots on location in New Mexico in two weeks' time and opens early in 2013.

Jason Statham in talks for Fast & Furious
Two sequels filming back-to-back

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/j/jason-statham-in-talks-for-fast-furious-68455-470-75.jpg)

Is this news imitating art? Rumours are coming Fast & Furious about the driving series of the same name, including word that two new movies will shoot next year and that Jason Statham will be in one of them!
 
Justin Lin is back to direct his fourth (and fifth?) movie in the franchise, having dropped out of both Highlander and Terminator films.
 
As much as he likes F&F, we can't help thinking they drove a particularly large truck full of money to Lin's house to get him to sign on again. Especially as word is that Fast Six and Fast Seven could shoot back-to-back. Now that's dedication.
 
Maybe Total Film is being too cynical here. Perhaps Lin really wants to work with Jason Statham, who has apparently been approached to appear in at least one of those Fast movies.
 
“[Universal] is entering into preliminary conversations with Jason Statham to explore the possibility of the action star joining one or both films,” reported Twitch Film.
 
On our calculator, The Fast & The Furious + Jason Statham = awesome. How many films this deep into a series can you say that about?

Johnny Depp Will Be Dr Seuss
And he's hired another Thin Man scribe

Tick another literary legend from the To Do list that lives in Johnny Depp’s head: having played Peter Pan pen wrangler JM Barrie in Finding Neverland, the actor/producer is now looking to bring Dr Seuss to life in a new live-action biopic.

Seuss – real name Theodor Geisel – got his creative start drawing adverts and comic strips before graduating to political cartoons during World War II. He then switched to his distinctive style of children’s books, pumping out the likes of Oh, The Places You’ll Go!, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, Horton Hears a Who! and The Cat in the Hat. His work has also become a lucrative source of blockbusters for various studios.

But though Universal and Despicable Me production company Illumination Entertainment are behind the new movie, don’t go expecting too much in the way of CG tinkering this time. That said, given Seuss’ style and visual imagination, there’s always a chance it could show up. We’re just crossing our fingers no one tries to get Mike Myers back in his awful Cat suit.

The connection between the companies and the Geisel estate is already strong, since Illumination is busy working on a CG cartoon version of Seuss tale The Lorax. Depp has agreed to co-produce the eventual biopic via his Infinitum Nihil company and Keith Bunin has been hired to write the script.

In related Depp/writer news, word also arrives that yet another scribe has been drafted in to craft the script for the actor’s long-gestating adaptation of Dashiell Hammett’s The Thin Man. After Jerry Stahl wrote the earliest versions, David Koepp was recently approached to work on the screenplay. But he and director Rob Marshall apparently didn’t see eye-to-eye on the vision for the movie, so now Shattered Glass writer/director and in-demand script doctor Billy Ray is taking on the job. It’ll be his responsibility to crank out a new take on private eye/drunkard Nick Charles (Depp) and his wife Nora as they track down a murderer…

Only just heard about this:

Charles Napier R.I.P.
The Blues Brothers star has died

(http://www.empireonline.com/images/image_index/150x180/55008.jpg)

Charles Napier, star of The Blues Brothers, The Silence Of The Lambs and Philadelphia died yesterday at the age of 75.

Reports from at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital, California, do not mention his cause of death, but he had been taken to hospital in previous years over issues with blood clots in his legs.

The much-loved tough guy character actor is perhaps best remembered for his role as Tucker McElroy in The Blues Brothers and his immortal line, "You're gonna look pretty funny tryin' to eat corn on the cob with no fuckin' teeth!"

Also seen as General Hawk in the first two Austin Powers movies, he's appeared in everything from out-and-out comedy to more serious dramas.

Die hard fans will know him from roles in TV shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Diagnosis Murder, and more recently, Archer, where he voiced the character of Dr. Spelts.

With a back catalogue (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0621008/) many actors working today would be very jealous of, he's kept himself very busy indeed over the years, making his abrupt farewell all the more difficult.

He is survived by his two sons, Hunter and Whit, and his daughter, Meghan. He will be sorely missed.

The Simpsons Stars Agree to Pay Cuts—and Get a Two-Year Lease on Life!

(http://images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/20090226/300.ad.TheSimpsons.022609.jpg)

Mr. Burns would say "excellent." But he's probably the only one.

The Simpsons' six principal vocal talents have agreed to a pay cut in order to keep the pioneering, record-setting show on the air past its current 23rd season. And sure enough, after the back room dealing was over, Fox proudly announced that it had renewed The Simpsons for a 24th and 25th season.

Meanwhile the salary cut was not the reported 45 percent that Fox was looking to slash from the budget, But guess who's willing to take a 70 percent(!) cut—in exchange for what he feels he and his fellow actors are rightly owed, of course?

"The Fox people said [there were] simply no circumstances under which the network would consider allowing me or any of the actors to share in the show's success," said Harry Shearer, aka Mr. Burns, Smithers, Principal Skinner, Ned Flanders, et al., in a statement to E! News.

"As a member of the The Simpsons cast for 23 years, I think it's fair to say that we've had a great run and no one should feel sorry for any of us. But given how much joy the show has given so many people over the years—and given how many billions of dollars in profits News Corp. has earned and will earn from it—I find it hard to believe that this is Fox's final word on the subject.

"At least I certainly hope it isn't, because the alternative is to cancel the show or fire me for having the gall to try to save the show by helping Fox with its new business model. Neither would be a fair result—either to those of us who have committed so many years to the show or to its loyal fans who make our effort worthwhile."

Letting Shearer go would leave quite a few people (fictional and otherwise) speechless, that's for sure.

Since 2008's round of raises, he and fellow stars Dan Castellaneta, Hank Azaria, Julie Kavner, Yeardley Smith and Nancy Cartwright were each making a reported $400,000 per episode.

Yesterday, the series' top producers agreed to a paycut, but they already have the back-end deals—a cut of the royalties from merchandise, syndication and other revenue streams—that Shearer and his costars have been seeking for themselves.

She could be just as steamed as Shearer, but Cartwright put things a little differently Friday: "The Simpsons is a remarkable chronicle of our times. I've wanted to do this since I was 16!  And I want to keep doing it until I am 86!  Long live The Simpsons."

And to think, Bart Simpson still won't have aged a day.

Sony buys the film rights to Steve Jobs authorised biography
Book's release date brought forward

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/a/apple-s-steve-jobs-dies-aged-56-68646-470-75.jpg)

Sony Pictures is in the midst of making a deal to secure the movie rights to upcoming authorised biography, Steve Jobs.

Deadline has the report, which claims the deal is '$1m against $3m', with Mark Gordon in line to produce.

The book, by Walter Isaacson, was initially scheduled to be released on 21 November, but that has now been bumped forward to 24 October.

It was apparently written with Jobs' full support, with the man himself giving over 40 interviews, and friends, family members and colleagues also contributing.

In light of the seismic impact news of Jobs' death had around the world this week, the book will no doubt be an enormous pre-Christmas seller.

It hardly seems a surprise that a Jobs biopic would be in the works, as tributes have described him as an 'visionary', 'iconoclast' and 'genius', and the story of his career rise takes in adversity, tension, rivalry and, finally, ridiculous success.

As Deadline points out, Sony would seem to be an ideal fit with the material, having recently worked wonders with business stories The Social Network and Moneyball.

Expect this to be fast-tracked into production.



Let's hope that once it's released it's not then re-released every few months with a few tweaks!   ;)

Kane & Lynch movie poster seen at Cannes

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/05/kanelynch51110.jpg)

The Kane & Lynch movie project appears to be moving smoothly -- it's to the "poster" stage already. Proving beyond a doubt that the casting is a "done deal"(as tweeted by writer  Kyle Ward), Empire spotted a Kane & Lynch movie poster with billing for both Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx at the Cannes Film Festival. This poster covers the entrance to the Majestic Hotel, making it look a bit more like the Tacky Hotel.

According to Empire, the poster gives the film a 2011 date, but we don't see it. Perhaps it's behind that inconsiderately placed luggage cart.

A better look at that poster:
(http://www.joblo.com/movie-posters/images/full/kane-lynch-poster1.jpg)

Still not convinced of the Jamie Foxx casting - hopefully this doesn't get turned into some "buddy" crook PG-13 flick.

Oddly enough [imdb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0968747/)] still lists this as being due out in 2013.

Don Johnson signs for Tarantino's Django Unchained
Plays plantation-owning slave prostitute pimp

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/d/don-johnson-signs-for-django-unchained-69301-00-470-75.jpg)

Don Johnson has signed up for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, but it took a hell of a lot of persuading.
 
Tarantino has spent the past four months convincing Johnson to take on one of the script’s most controversial parts, and it seems he’s finally got his man.
 
Despite the fact Johnson’s already played a racist in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete, Don considered Unchained’s Spencer Bennett even more irredeemable and was wary of taking on the role.
 
Which is fair enough – Bennett is a rich plantation owner who forces his slaves into prostitution. Not exactly the sort of man you'd want to be associated with for the rest of your life.
 
But unless Don changes his mind (as Kevin Costner seemed to last month (http://www.totalfilm.com/news/kevin-costner-walks-away-from-tarantino-s-django-unchained)) he’ll join what’s shaping up to be an incredible cast, who will be delivering what's arguably Tarantino's best script.

Which, when you consider the fact Don's last film was Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, will make a very nice change.



Massive Tarantino fan so i'm very much looking forward to this, confirmed cast so far includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson (of course) Kurt Russell and Treat Williams are also rumoured.   :)

Die Hard 5 named A Good Day To Die Hard
Featuring John McClane, Jr.

We're still waiting for confirmation that Bond 23 will be called Skyfall, but we can now reveal the official title for Die Hard 5: A Good Day To Die Hard.
 
Tom Rothman, Chief Executive Officer at Fox Filmed Entertainment, made the announcement on American TV.
 
Rothman didn't stop there, though. He also revealed that the story will feature John McClane, Jr. and it's officer McClane's trip to Moscow to spring his son from jail that kicks off another fight against terrorists.
 
Seems Mary Elizabeth Winstead's sibling Lucy McClane won't be returning, with the actress recently saying she doesn’t expect to appear in Die Hard 5 as John’s daughter.
 
Shooting begins in January 2012 with the role of John McClane Jr. to be cast before then.
 
Start making your excuses now boys - A Good Day To Die Hard will be released on Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2013.

Iron Man 3 starts next round of sequels leading to Avengers 2
Marvel studio head Kevin Feige makes announcement...

After the first official Avengers trailer teased us last week, Marvel stopped off at the New York Comic-Con where studio head Kevin Feige spoke about what’s next for the Marvel franchise.

Feige said that Iron Man 3 would be the first film “In the second phase of The Avengers initiative,”  which basically means the next wave of Marvel sequels that will start to the build to Avengers 2.

Feige also confirmed to fans that Marvel is already working on Iron Man 3 with director Shane Black.

Feige said that Iron Man 3 will be “the first of what we sort of refer to as phase two of this saga that will culminate, God willing, in Avengers 2.”

So, it sounds like Marvel will be pumping out Iron Man 3, Captain America 2 and Thor 2 before we get our The Avengers sequel.

Unfortunately it doesn’t look like Avengers 2 will be hitting the big screen until 2014 at the earliest, as Iron Man 3 is scheduled for a May 2013 release, Thor 2 for November 2013 and Captain America 2 doesn’t even have a release date as of yet!

Regardless of all the release date nonsense, it is still exciting for Marvel fans to hear about what the future of the franchise has to offer.

Speaking of which, fans will be delighted to know that Fiege has confirmed an Iron Man 3 teaser trailer at the end of The Avengers, so make sure you stay seated or you'll be more upset than Tony Stark at last orders.

Albert Finney joins Bond 23
Sam Mendes scores another classy cast addition

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/a/albert-finney-joins-bond-23-70795-00-470-75.jpg)

Just when we were all thinking that there was no way the Bond 23 (or should we say Skyfall?) cast could get any classier, Sam Mendes has gone and added Albert Finney to the line-up.

According to the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye (who has pretty good form with these Bond rumours), Finney recently joined the cast for a script reading at Pinewood Studios.

The English actor is said to be playing the sizeable role of "a Foreign Office mandarin with powers over the Secret Intelligence Service."

It won't be the first time Finney has crossed paths with a superspy, having appeared in The Bourne Ultimatum as key Treadstone figure Dr Albert Hirsch.

He joins what's possibly the best ever Bond cast, with Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Helen McCrory all signed on, and Daniel Craig returning as 007 for the third time.

With a set of thesps like that, it's no surprise Mendes is thought to be toning down the action in favour acting for his instalment (http://www.totalfilm.com/news/bond-23-axes-the-action-targets-an-oscar).

Bond 23/Skyfall/Whatever… will open on 26 October 2012, which is less than one year away!

The TV presenter, most famous for his show Jim'll Fix It, was just two days away from his 85th birthday.

Police were called to his home in Leeds at 12.10pm, where they discovered his body, Sky News reports. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Friend and fellow DJ Dave Lee Travis paid tribute to Savile, saying: "For some unknown reason, with Jim, you couldn't anticipate that he wasn't going to be around anymore - he was such a powerful presence.

"He was one of the first DJs that actually became a personality."

Mickey Rourke talks Sin City 2
"It depends on how bad they want me"

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/m/mickey-rourke-talks-sin-city-2-70850-470-75.jpg)

Comic book fans the world over will have found their ears pricking at the news that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are planning to include the story Just Another Saturday Night in the long-awaited sequel to Sin City.

Involving three of the key players from the first film in the form of Hartigan (Bruce Willis), Nancy (Jessica Alba) and Marv (Mickey Rourke), it would be a popular choice, provided the original talent could be persuaded to return.

Just Another Saturday Night follows Marv's movements on the same night that Nancy and Hartigan are reunited, providing a storyline that runs in tandem with the events of the first movie's final third. Mickey Rourke is aware of proceedings and recently spoke to Comingsoon.net about the chances of a return for big Marv.

“It depends,” laughed the Wrestler star. “It depends on how bad they want me, you feel me? I did [like the character], but I'm claustrophobic, so the hours of makeup… you have to keep it on for about 13 or 14 hours a day. It's latex and glue and that stuff gets my eyes all red.”

It also got in the way of the star’s social life last time around. “I remember I picked up some chick at a bar in Texas one night and invited her to the set to have lunch at the lunch break," says Rourke. "I couldn't take the sh*t off. f*ck it, I never saw her again.”

That said, the character is at least one that Rourke would be interested in revisiting, which is more than can be said for Whiplash, the villain he played in Iron Man 2.

“I try to find the moments where [the villain is] not that cliched, evil bad guy," he explains. "I had it on Iron Man and they won. It was going to work for Marvel and them breaking [Jon] Favreau's balls and wanting just a one-dimensional villain. The performance and all the things that I tried to bring to it ended up on the fucking floor."

Word of warning then Mr. Rodriguez. If you do persuade Mickey Rourke to don the latex for a second time, make sure he gets lots of nice, juicy characterisation to play with. And the odd lunch break out of character might help as well…

Eddie Murphy quits as Oscars host following Brett Ratner departure

Eddie Murphy has followed his friend director Brett Ratner ("Tower Heist") out the door of the Kodak Theater. Ratner resigned as co-producer of the Oscars on Tuesday after his conduct was called into question following his use of the term "fags" and a tasteless interview with shock jock Howard Stern.

In making the annoucement of Murphy's departure Wednesday, academy president Tom Sherak said, "I appreciate how Eddie feels about losing his creative partner, Brett Ratner, and we all wish him well."

In the statement, Murphy said, "First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party's decision with regard to a change of producers for this year's Academy Awards ceremony. I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I'm sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job."


Gotta be Ricky to replace him   :)

Morgan Freeman Wins Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille Award

(http://www.thewrap.com/sites/default/files/Morgan-Freeman_0.jpg)

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association's board of directors has named Morgan Freeman recipient of the 2012 Cecil B. DeMille Award, the HFPA announced on Wednesday.

The DeMille is the HFPA's lifetime achievement award, and in the past has gone to Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, Warren Beatty, Anthony Hopkins and Alfred Hitchcock, among others.

The embattled organization staged a press conference and brought in two celebrities, actress Amy Adams and director Pedro Almodovar, to make the announcement of the single award.

"Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman is one of the most recognizable figures in American cinema," read the HFPA press release announcing the selection. "His works are among the most critically and commercially successful films of all time and Freeman himself ranks 10th among worldwide top-grossing actors of all time."

Freeman will receive his honor at the 69th Annual Golden Globes ceremony, which will take place on Sunday, January 15 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is currently embroiled in one lawsuit with its former publicist, and another dispute with Dick Clark Productions over the rights to produce its lucrative annual broadcast.

If Eddie Murphy really wanted to make a "comeback" statement, he should've taken the hosting job and started dropping "Raw"1987-era pipebombs on stage. I believe this has been the knock against him in the last 10+ years or so. A loss of some kind of edge that made him relevant at one point.

Ricky Gervais vows more outrage at Golden Globes

Ricky Gervais says he wants to improve on his controversial performance at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards -- by being even more outrageous the next time around.

The British comedian said his third time hosting the annual Hollywood awards ceremony in January 2012 would definitely be his last.

But he is aiming to go out with a bang.

"They must be mad. Not sure if I'm flattered that they trust me or insulted that they trust me. Either way...they shouldn't trust me," Gervais said in a statement on Thursday.

The caustic creator of TV mockumentary "The Office" last year insulted Golden Globe organizers with jokes about bribes and took shots Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie's critically-panned movie "The Tourist" that was up for a Golden Globe nomination.

Many of the jokes in the televised broadcast fell flat with the gala audience of A-list stars. The president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the event, said afterward that Gervais would not return.

"I don't think anyone had the right to be offended but they were. This year I'm going to make sure their offense is completely justified," Gervais said on his blog on Thursday.

He asked fans to pass on their "favorite targets for the monologue."

After Golden Globe organizers announced he'd be back one day earlier, Gervais wasted little time in tweaking more ribs in Hollywood. He posted a Twitter message saying that he told Oscars host, comedian Billy Crystal: "He'd better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material" at the Academy Awards ceremony in February 2012.

Gervais also gloated over being invited back again, saying it was a tough decision for him because "I was worried that I couldn't improve on last year."

"What actually tipped the balance and made me say yes, was the fact that it would shut up all those...idiots who said that I'd never be invited back," he wrote on his blog.

His hiring will be either a problem for celebrities and Golden Globe organizers or a stroke of genius for the NBC television network that airs the awards show if more people tune in just to see what Gervais says.

The timing also will be good publicity for the comedian's new TV venture, "Life's Too Short" which will make its U.S. debut on HBO in early 2012.

Gervais' new show is a documentary-style comedy about the life of a showbusiness dwarf, featuring 3 ft 6in (1.07m) actor Warwick Davis as a version of himself.

Johnny Depp also appears on the TV show in a cameo role as himself, sparring with Gervais over his money-making career and suggesting that, for at least one Hollywood star, all is forgiven.

George Lucas talks Indy 5
He's still looking for his MacGuffin

Following Steven Spielberg’s comments (http://www.totalfilm.com/news/steven-spielberg-talks-indy-5) about a possible fourth Indiana Jones sequel, George Lucas has also come out to confirm that the fifth film is coming along nicely.

According to an interview conducted by Vulture, Indy 5 is very much on Lucas’s horizon, provided he can find a suitable MacGuffin to fit with what they’ve come up with so far.

“I told [Spielberg] about the story, but I really haven’t found the MacGuffin yet,” he said. “I mean, I know what it’s about, but I just have to find a MacGuffin that fits into the arena we’re working in.”

Lest we forget, this is what Lucas came up with the last time he put his thinking cap on…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG4r_KvimeI

To be honest, we’re really not sure we want to see any more Indy after Crystal Skull. Taking aside everything else, Harrison Ford was looking creaky back in 2008, so goodness knows how he’d fare a few more years down the track.

However, it looks as though a fifth film is going to happen whether we like it or not. Remember folks, we’ll always have the original trilogy. They can’t take that away…

The first GI Joe movie was a cheesefest.  I might have liked it when I was 10, but silly PG13 one-liners with phoned-in action doesn't hold my attention today.

I'm willing to allow myself to be a little excited about Retaliation.  At least I know it can't get any worse .... right?   :-\

Not too sure about the eyes on the Spidey's mask, they look a little too Dame Edna for me!

Denis Leary's in the film though so i'm happy.   :)

good news, i really liked I Am Legend ... although he dies in the end wtf. It says they're doing a 300 sequel too .... in which everyone dies >_<

I Am Legend loses some prequel ground too, because it's a complete film. Showing the outbreak and the cure getting to the safe zone.

This is what I love about Christmas, all the new film trailers.

Now Prometheus is revealed, looks good with a strong cast:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sftuxbvGwiU

The more I see and hear about this movie the more excited I am by it. Should Better be excellent !
   
Guy Pearce's Prometheus Role Revealed

As the June release date approaches, we're gradually learning more about Prometheus, while tantalisingly not really learning anything at all. Guy Pearce has said that his role is a small one, but we didn't yet know what that role actually was. Now though, thanks to a Hungarian interview with Ridley Scott picked up by the Alien fansite APN, we learn that he's playing a certain Peter Weyland.

That surname is one that should be familiar if you've been paying attention to the Alien films thus far: Weyland-Yutani is the shady mega-corporation responsible for the xenomorph outbreak in the first place. Paul Resier's odious Carter Burke was one of their executives in Aliens, and Lance Henriksen played company founder Charles Bishop Weyland in Alien vs Predator (the model for the Bishop androids we meet later).

"When the first Alien movie and Blade Runner were made," says Ridley, "I thought that in the near future the world would be owned by large companies. That's why we have the Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner and Weyland-Yutani in Alien. They sent the Nostromo spaceship. The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, who is played by Guy Pearce. That's the connection between the two films, and nothing more."

Nothing more apart from the Space Jockeys.

So what's Peter's relationship to Charles Bishop? AvP took place in 2004, where Weyland was already up-and-running as a multi-billion dollar industry. If Peter Weyland is just "an entrepreneur" in Prometheus, does that suggest the early days of the company, far in the future? Are we ignoring and contradicting AvP? Would we be absolutely OK with that? Discuss below.

Prometheus, as you'll be well aware, stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Charlize Theron and Logan Marshall Green, and is out on June 8.

Davy Jones of The Monkees dies aged 66

Davy Jones, Manchester-born lead singer with 60s band The Monkees, has died aged 66, his publicist has confirmed.

He died in his sleep at his home in Florida. His publicist, Deborah Robicheau, said he had a massive heart attack.

The band, who included musicians Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork, were famous for hits including Daydream Believer and I'm a Believer.

The Monkees were an American pop band, assembled in 1966.

Jones was married three times and had four daughters.

The Monkees found fame through a successful television series, popular in both the US and the UK, and had four number one albums in a 13-month period.

They were famous for their clean-cut image and were marketed as the American answer to The Beatles, notching up nine top 40 hits.

Acting career

Three of the band's original members - Jones, Dolenz and Tork - reunited together last year to play a series of gigs.

He appeared aged 11 on ITV soap Coronation Street, as Ena Sharples's grandson. He also appeared in the television series Z Cars before leaving showbusiness to train as a jockey.

(http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/58796000/jpg/_58796945_014129381-1.jpg)

He came back to acting with a role in a stage production of Oliver! He appeared in the West End and followed the show to Broadway where he built up a career as an actor and singer before auditioning for The Monkees.

Music journalist Paul Gambaccini described Jones as having "phenomenal" charisma and said that in 2008, he was voted the top teen idol of all time by Yahoo! Music.

"The pop world at that time loved The Beatles and that north-western English sound was something that America wanted, when they put together the so-called Pre-Fab Four," he said, referring to the nickname given to the Monkees.

Mr Gambaccini said The Monkees had been put together by the music industry, something which was unheard of at that time.

"There had been individual teen idols who had been literally picked up off the street and groomed to be popstar, but there had never been a band that was put together, and they were assembled because the two producers had liked A Hard Day's Night, the Beatles' movie."

A spokeswoman for the Medical Examiner's Office for Martin County, Florida, said: "The District 19 Medical Examiner's Office has been informed of the death of Mr Davy Jones.

"The Medical Examiner's Office will take jurisdiction and a possible autopsy will be performed and evaluation of the circumstances of death and medical information."

Citadel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BglaID9L5Fw

f the British Isles comes Clarian Foy's highly anticipated Citadel. Throw in some feral children in a dystopic environment and mix with hoodie horror and we get this incredibly atmospheric horror.

The dilapidated suburbia of Edenstown casts a shadow over Tommy Cowley’s life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he now finds himself terrorized by the same mysterious hooded gang, who seem intent on taking his baby daughter.


Torn between the help of an understanding nurse and a vigilante priest, he discovers that to be free of his fears, he must finally face the demons of his past and enter the one place that he fears the most...the abandoned tower block known as the "CITADEL".

'Bill & Ted''s Third Excellent Script Nearly Complete

(http://www.nextmovie.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/BillAndTed.jpg)

Here are some of the things that have happened since 1991: the United States elected its first African-American president, Pluto ceased being a planet, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series and Justin Bieber was born. But the one thing that still hasn't come together? A script for the long rumoured third "Bill & Ted" film.

Until now, that is.

MTV News has a new exclusive interview with Keanu Reeves and no less an authority than Ted himself swears that within the next few weeks, a script will be delivered to him for "Bill & Ted 3." Probably. Maybe. Check out the Earth-shattering interview right here (http://www.mtv.com/videos/movies/639059/rough-cut-keanu-reeves-talks-bill-and-ted-3.jhtml) and find out for yourself whether we'll see it soon -- or if we'll have to wait another 20 years. Good thing those guys can time travel!


Oh and another thing that hasn't happened since 1991, Liverpool winning a league title!   ;D


The script for a third Bill & Ted film is complete, both leading actors have confirmed. Keanu Reeves, in speaking with The Independent, said the following:

"Yeah, we have a script. We're trying to put it together. It's a good script too."

Alex Winter, meanwhile, Tweeted the following:

"Script done? Check. -We love it? Check. -Green light? Working on it!"

Last year, Reeves dropped some story details about the sequel's plot, saying that it will revolve around Bill and Ted trying to fulfill their combined destiny of writing the song that saves the world.

Credited with a major launching point in the career of Reeves, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure spawned, in addition to a theatrical sequel, two animated series and a short-lived live-action television show (featuring a completely different cast).

And for the weekend that's in it:

(http://www.empireonline.com/images/image_index/150x180/59096.jpg)

If you're a horror head, you may well have a soft spot for Freddy, Jason, Michael, Pinhead and, if you're dedicated, Chucky and the Corn children. But true connoisseurs of inexplicably long and increasingly mind-boggling franchises will prick up their ears this morning at the news that Lionsgate is planning to reboot the Leprechaun series. The proximity of this announcement to St Patrick's Day is probably not a coincidence.

The reboot constitutes a two-film deal between Lionsgate and WWE Studios (yes, that's WWE as in wrestling), who previously collaborated on See No Evil, starring wrestler Kane, and The Condemned, with (Stone Cold) Steve Austin. Can we expect Dave Bautista as the Leprechaun?

"We've been looking for ways to continue our relationship with Lionsgate," explains WWE honcho Michael Luisi, "and we saw Leprechaun as the perfect opportunity to take a well-known franchise and put a modern-day spin on it. This is a property we believe our audience will respond to, and we continue to look for ways to surprise and engage them."

Megan Fox and Zoe Saldana are teaming for Paramount Pictures' Swindle, Deadline reports. The spec script for the heist tale was written by relative newcomer pair Enzo Mileti and Scott Wilson.

Details of Swindle are currently few, but Fox and Saldana will also produce with Michael De Luca.

Fox starred in last week's release, Friends with Kids, and will also appear in the upcoming Paramount comedy, The Dictator.

Saldana is currently shooting the still-untitled Star Trek sequel and earlier today was announced for the cast of Blood Ties.

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Kuklinski
In 1949, Kuklinski, 14, ambushed and beat Charley Lane, the leader of a small gang of teenagers known as "The Project Boys," who had bullied him for some time.[7] Following a particularly bad beating Kuklinski sought revenge, attacking Lane with a thick wooden dowel, eventually beating him to death, although he denied wanting to kill Lane. Kuklinski then dumped Lane's body off a bridge in South Jersey after removing his teeth and chopping off his finger tips with a hatchet in an effort to prevent identification of the body.[8] He then went on to savagely beat the remaining six boys in Lane's gang. He later joked that "Giving is better than receiving."

I dunno if this is for a genuine movie, probably not but I like the idea anyways. 

"What we have here is a hilariously adorable trailer for what is being called a cross between "28 Days Later" and "Lord of the Flies". The only way it could get any cuter was if it had puppies. The logline: The brutal allegory of a group of children in middle America struggling to survive in the wake of a zombie apocalypse. No further info available"

True Skin

Another one that may or may not get made but looks promising.  Apparently this is a short film which is being developed into a feature. This utterly stunning "teaser" appeared out of nowhere a couple of days ago and features augmented humans, robots (possibly AI) scavenging and coexisting with humans, and holograms in what looks like a far future Bangkok. It says coming summer 2012 but no further information is available.

Ready For A Twins Sequel? Triplets may be on the way...

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/6/6b/Twins_Poster.jpg/220px-Twins_Poster.jpg)

Someone obviously decided that this is Announce Sequels Many Thought Would Never Happen Week. This one is even more unexpected than Anchorman 2 yesterday. After years of rumours, chit-chat, denials, whispers and Danny DeVito mentioning the idea, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Universal is planning to produce Triplets, a sequel to 1988 comedy Twins. And it’s one that would not only reunite DeVito with onscreen brother Arnold Schwarzenegger but also… wait for it… would add Eddie Murphy as their new surprise sibling!

This could either be the greatest thing to happen to ‘80s comedy film franchises in the history of the universe or, you know, it could be an appalling concept that will bring about the Mayan apocalypse a few months early.  :P

True, the first film – which hinged on an experiment to create the perfect human that spawns Schwarzenegger’s Herculean philosopher Julius and yet somehow also burps out DeVito’s low-rent Vincent – couldn’t be more of a mixed bag if it was found in a bag containing several smaller bags of pick ‘n’ mix. In a food mixer. Which in turn is in a cement mixer. But there was some decent comic material to be had as the mismatched men thwarted nasty loan shark types who were after small-scale shyster Vincent.

Right now, all that exists is a twinkle in producer Ivan Reitman’s eye, but he’s working with his Montecito Picture Company and the studio to track down a writer and flesh out the concept that would see Julius and Vincent joined by Murphy’s fellow relation. The actors are all attached, but it remains to be seen if this will make it down the development birth canal.

Reitman won’t be calling the shots this time, so there’s a chance for someone else to bottle the magic that only happens when you combine the Austrian Oak and the man who spins stories of monkey attacks on his genitals… And let's face it, after A Thousand Words, Murphy could use a comedy people might actually want to see...

News broke online last week about Universal Pictures' upcoming sequel to the 1988 Ivan Reitman comedy, Twins, to be titled Triplets. This time around, the original film's stars, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Devito, will team with a long-lost third brother, to be played by Eddie Murphy.

ComingSoon.net learned of the proposed project during an interview late last year with Schwarzenegger himself and, while the full piece is still under embargo, we're now able to share with you the actor's thoughts on the unlikely big screen sequel.

"I would love to do another 'Twins'," Schwarzenegger said when asked if there were any past characters he'd like to revist. "As a matter of fact, we’ve been talking about doing one and it’s called 'Triplets'. I’d find somebody like Eddie Murphy or someone that people would say, 'How does that happen, medically speaking?' and, 'Physically, there’s no way!' Then, somehow, we would explain it. That would be hilarious with what we know about someone like him."

Last week's news confirmed that Murphy has, indeed, joined the project, which is now looking for screenwriters.

"I can see a poster," the actor continued. "A billboard with us three. 'They found another one!' 'Triplets!' 'Only their mother can tell them apart!' I would do that in two seconds, because that’s real entertainment. You come out with that movie for Christmas, like December 5th or something like that, and you’re home free."

The original film opened on December 9th and grossed over $200 million worldwide.

Returning to the screen after his time in politics, Schwarzenegger has already lined up a number of different projects. He'll be featured in an expanded role in the upcoming The Expendables 2, lead Kim Jee-Woon's English-language debut The Last Stand and then re-team with Sylvester Stallone on The Tomb.

First Django Unchained Poster

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/f/first-teaser-poster-for-django-unchained-100577-01.jpg)

the newly released official plot synopsis:

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles - dead or alive.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South's most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django andSchultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...

Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED is produced by Stacey Sher, Reginald Hudlin and Pilar Savone. The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole. DJANGO UNCHAINED will be released in the U.S. on December 25, 2012, and internationally by Sony Pictures.

Bill Murray Says Ghostbusters 3 is Still a 'Possibility'

(http://www.comingsoon.net/nextraimages/ghostbusterssequel.jpg)

While Dan Aykroyd was quoted in February saying that Bill Murray would not be involved with Ghostbusters 3, Murray himself revealed earlier this month in an interview with WGN (via The Playlist) that it's still a "possibility."

While Murray quickly changes the subject and talks about Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, he doesn't say outright that he won't do the third installment.

Aykroyd previously said that the film was in "suspended animation. The studio, the director Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis feel there must be a way to do it, but Bill Murray will not do the movie. He doesn't want to be involved."

Tom Cruise to star in Van Helsing reboot
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are writing it

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/t/tom-cruise-to-star-in-van-helsing-reboot-101975-470-75.jpg)

Van Helsing was a big disappointment for Universal. Bringing together the likes of Dracula, the Wolfman and Frankenstein's Monster, it should have been The Avengers of monster movies, but suffered an absolute mauling at the hands of the critics. Any ideas of a potential franchise were swiftly dead in the water.

However, Universal have now attached electrodes to Van Helsing's ruined corpse and are ready to flip the switch, with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci currently developing the script for an upcoming reboot.

Now, whilst that might not necessarily sound like a recipe for success, consider this: Tom Cruise is reportedly on board to produce the film, and apparently, he's agreed to star in it as well.

Whether or not you're a fan of Cruise's screen presence, this does at least suggest that Universal are planning to do things properly this time around. Cruise generally runs a tight ship when he's on production duties, so hopefully there will be none of the half-assedness that plagued the original.

The team-up with Kurtzman and Roberto represents part of the first-look deal agreed between Universal and the screenwriters, with the pair also set to breathe new life into The Mummy. Prepare to hide behind your sofas… monsters are on the rise once more.

Kurt Russell drops out of Django Unchained
As does Sacha Baron Cohen

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/k/kurt-russell-drops-out-of-django-unchained-102520-470-75.jpg)

Django Unchained has suffered a double blow in the casting stakes, with both Kurt Russell and Sacha Baron Cohen dropping out of Quentin Tarantino's latest.

Russell is the second actor to leave the role of Ace Woody, having initially replaced Kevin Costner for the part. Costner had cited scheduling issues, but as yet, no reason has been given by Russell's camp for his departure.

Woody is one of the film's many villains, a ruthless trainer who pits various slaves against each other for the entertainment of the public. Could it be that the character is too controversial for A-list tastes, or is it purely coincidence that both Costner and Russell have dropped out?

Sacha Baron Cohen's departure seems a little more straightforward, with scheduling conflicts precluding his involvement. He was only earmarked for a cameo in any case, so his absence shouldn't rock the boat too much.

Meanwhile, QT still has plenty of acting talent at his disposal, with Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson all set to star. Django Unchained opens in the UK on 18 January 2013.

New synopsis and filming details for The World's End
Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/n/new-synopsis-and-filming-details-for-the-worlds-end-102519-470-75.jpg)

The World's End looks set to bring the Blood & Ice Cream trilogy to a close sooner rather than later, with the news that filming will begin on the project this September.

Back in January, Pegg and Wright revealed they were hard at work on the script, and according to Deadline, cameras will begin rolling this autumn with a view to a release date in early 2013.

The film will follow Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz in the loose trilogy, with Pegg referring his next project via Twitter, as a job involving "plasma and gelato". As for what we can expect from the script, the new log line is very helpful indeed.

"20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl," begins the blurb, "five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End."

"As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries."

How's that for a slice of fried gold, eh? Colour us sick with excitement…. the boys are back in town!

Weekend Box Office – The Avengers Break Second Weekend Record with $103.1 Million; Dark Shadows in Second with $28.8 Million

It’s another one for the record books. Along with the prize for highest first weekend in domestic history, The Avengers has now earned the highest second weekend with an estimated $103.1 million from 4,349 locations. That crushes Avatar’s former sophomore record of $75.6 million and represents a decline of just 50% – a better hold than The Dark Knight managed in its second frame. Even more exciting for Disney and Marvel, the worldwide estimate for The Avengers has now topped One Billion. Unfortunately, good news for The Avengers means not-so-good news for Dark Shadows. The latest collaboration of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp earned an estimated $28.8 million from 3,755 locations, or a bit less than The Avengers made on Friday alone.

For the second weekend in a row, The Avengers has made breaking a box office record look easy. As if it wasn’t impressive enough that the film topped $200 million in its first outing, it has now made the dream of a $100 million second-weekend a reality.

Considering that it has been ten years since Spider-Man became the first movie to break $100 million, and that few people saw last weekend’s $200 million landmark coming, this historic second weekend wasn’t on anyone’s radar until a few days ago. That’s partially because $100 million seemed an unattainable goal for a holdover and partially because most people assumed that The Avengers would lose more than 50% in its sophomore frame. In 2008, The Dark Knight fell by almost 53% its second time out, and most people had The Avengers’ odds at about the same. But, once again, the superheroes beat our expectations; and, while the film’s hold is not as impressive as Spider-Man’s 63% in 2002, it was certainly stronger than The Hunger Games, TDK, and many other recent ‘blockbusters’ could manage on their second weekends.

So, now that The Avengers has captured another record, let’s update where the blockbuster stands. With Sunday’s estimate, the film has now earned a gigantic $373.1 million in the US over 10 days. That already tops the final gross for both Iron Man features ($318.4/$312.4) and equals the domestic total of Spider-Man 2 ($373.5). Worldwide, Disney estimates that the film has earned $1.002 Billion, putting it in eleventh place on the list of All-Time earners, right behind Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland with $1.024.

Speaking of Tim Burton, did you know that this was the week that Dark Shadows was coming out? Don’t worry, a lot of other people seemed to have forgotten as well. The latest pairing of Burton and his muse, Johnny Depp, was a bit of a financial let-down, despite being the only wide release of the weekend. Instead of the $35 million that was projected, the director’s take on TV’s classic vampire soap opera commanded just $28.8 million. With The Avengers looming large, no one expected outsized numbers from Dark Shadows – especially after the critics weighed in. But most of us did expect the film to get to $30 million, based on Depp’s appeal and the size of WB’s marketing effort. The reported budget on Dark Shadows is $150 million, so the studio is going to have to depend on Depp’s international appeal to make this one a financial winner.

The all-consuming interest in The Avengers (combined with the lack of interest in Dark Shadows) allowed two limited releases to sneak in to the top ten this weekend. First, in 178 locations, is Fox Searchlight’s Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which earned an impressive per-screen average of just under $15,000. Then, at number ten with an estimated $1.35 million from 322 locations, is Lionsgate’s Girl in Progress. Considering that I haven’t seen one bit of advertising for this dramedy, I’d say that’s pretty impressive as well.

After last weekend’s box office record-breaker I wondered how front-loaded The Avengers would be. So far? Not very. Assuming that the film can maintain this level of interest next weekend, what would a total of $50 million mean for the debut of Peter Berg’s Battleship? We all know that word of mouth on the Hasbro movie has been, er, mixed. And, unlike Dark Shadows, Battleship was designed to appeal to precisely the same audience as our reigning superhero champs.  Think there’s room for two at the top?


Watched Avengers at the weekend, it was awesome.   :)

First promo posters for Sin City 2 and Machete Kills

Sin City 2 and Machete Kills, the forthcoming projects from Robert Rodriguez, have both released their first promotional material in the form of a pair of cool new teaser posters.

First up, we have the one-sheet for Machete Kills, which harks back to the film's grindhouse origins with a scuzzy, peeling image spattered with blood and miscellaneous grime. You can just picture it hanging outside a dingy fleapit cinema, giving passing gorehounds the come-on...

The poster for Sin City 2 is a far more stylish affair, making great play of the film's A Dame To Kill For subtitle, alongside a host of visual cues reminiscent of the first film. Monochrome background... check. Flash of blood-red foreground colouring... check. Driving rain... check.

Machete Kills will be the first to film, with Rodriguez having added a number of new cast members in recent weeks including Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard and Michelle Rodriguez. Oh, and then there's Mel Gibson, of course. Sin City 2 will come along shortly after, although Rodriguez has suggested he could delegate some filming on Machete, should he need to make his schedule work.

Both films are expected to arrive in 2013. In the meantime, you can feast your eyes upon both posters, below...

Robert Rodriguez always seems to lurk in the shadows and then pounce with a couple of interesting decisions and projects. Even though these are continuing projects, the timing feels right.

Visually, I'm mostly drawn to the "Machete Kills" poster, but the Sin City poster feels appropriate to the old noir crime theme.

Sony developing Shadow of the Colossus movie
Chronicle director Josh Trank is in charge

A movie based on Team Ico's beloved PlayStation 2 adventure Shadow of the Colossus is currently in the works at Sony Pictures, according to a Deadline (http://www.deadline.com/2012/05/chronicle-helmer-josh-trank-takes-on-shadow-of-the-colossus-for-sony-pictures/) report.

Josh Trank, the man behind this year's solid found-footage superhero flick Chronicle, has signed on to direct the live action adaptation and is currently looking for a scriptwriter.

No indication was offered as to when the film might arrive in cinemas or who might be cast in the leading roles.

For the uninitiated, the 2005 game tells the story of a young man who sets out on a quest to slay 16 giants in an attempt to revive a girl named Mono.

Trank is apparently a huge fan of Team Ico's work and deliberately sought out the project.

Marvel confirms Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man at Comic-Con
Plus: Titles for Thor and Captain America sequels

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/m/marvel-confirms-guardians-of-the-galaxy-and-ant-man-at-comic-con-108330-00-470-75.jpg)

t was one of the worst-kept secrets relating to this year's Comic-Con, but Marvel have confirmed that Guardians Of The Galaxy is getting the movie treatment.

Comprising an assortment of heroes from various planets, the Guardians are something of a supergroup. They've had comic-book links to the Avengers in the past, so we're very much expecting this film to tie in with The Avengers 2 (especially given the intergalactic enemies that featured in The Avengers).

Marvel also released some concept art for Guardians by Charlie Wen. It establishes that this'll be an extremely ambitious project, and it will have to walk a fine line to avoid being another CGI mess like Green Lantern.

Check out the artwork:

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/m/marvel-confirms-guardians-of-the-galaxy-and-ant-man-at-comic-con-108330-470-75.jpg)

Ant-Man wasn't given an official release date, but Edgar Wright's test footage was revealed, and it was given an official logo (see below).

On top of that, Thor 2 and Captain America 2 were given official titles, which are Thor: The Dark World, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Check out the whole bunch of Marvel's official logos below:

Mass Shooting at Dark Knight Rises Premiere
(http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/17te4opjxmuq8jpg/original.jpg)
Source: [Kotaku (http://kotaku.com/5927653/mass-shooting-at-dark-knight-rises-premiere)]

Early Friday, 12 people were killed and dozens more were injured after a suspect opened fire at a midnight Dark Knight Rises screening outside Denver.
 
Colorado NBC affiliate 9 News is reporting that 12 were killed in the shooting and 38 injured.
 
The shooting happened in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, which is a Denver suburb.

Tear gas was set off in the theater, followed by gunfire. Some theatergoers thought they heard firecrackers or that the gunshots were part of the movie. Some of the bullets apparently injured theatergoers in an adjacent theater. The gunfire has been described as "fully automatic."
 
According to witnesses, the suspect entered the theater through the emergency exit, didn't say anything, and fired in the air. He then began making his way up the aisle and shooting audience members, including children. Reports state that the man wore a bulletproof vest, goggles, and a riot helmet.
 
Authorities discovered the suspect in the parking lot. He had three weapons on him (an assault rifle and two handguns), and there were apparently more weapons and explosives in his car. The suspect is currently in custody, and police do not believe there was a second shooter.
 
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the suspect is a 24-year-old white male named James Holmes.

Steve Pink to direct Bad Santa 2
Billy Bob Thornton returning as Willie

Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink has signed on to direct foul-mouthed festive follow-up Bad Santa 2.

A sequel to Terry Zwigoff’s 2003 black comedy, Bad Santa 2 will see Billy Bob Thornton reprising his role as a boozy conman who dresses up as Father Christmas.

Pink will also write the sequel’s script, having impressed previously with his screenplays for John Cusack vehicles Grosse Pointe Blank and High Fidelity.

Could that mean Cusack will get a role in the sequel? Considering Pink’s work with him in the past, we like those odds. Cusack as a yammering drunk? We’re up for that.

Pink could have a hard time keeping up with the first film’s infamously filthy shenanigans, mind - Bad Santa contained 159 iterations of the ‘F’ word, and 300 swear words in total.

With writing yet to commence on the sequel, no plot details are available, but it’s pretty safe to bet that Willie will be back boozing as usual.

Bad Santa 2 opens in cinemas in 2013.

Joss Whedon Signs On to Direct, Write 'Avengers 2'

Joss Whedon has signed to write and direct "The Avengers 2," Disney Chairman Bob Iger said Tuesday.

In addition, Whedon will create a "Marvel-based" series for ABC, Iger said during a conference call with analysts.

Whedon wrote and slid behind the camera on "The Avengers," which Iger called a "phenomenal success" during the call. The adaptation of the Marvel Comics series has grossed nearly $1.5 billion worldwide.

Whedon's script and direction were praised by critics and fans for their light and often humorous touch.

Thanks largely to "The Avengers,"  the income at Disney's studio unit jumped to $313 million from $49 million a year earlier, during its most recent fiscal quarter. Overall, net income across all of Disney's divisions jumped 24 percent to $1.8 billion for the period.

Since purchasing Marvel for $4 billion three years ago, Disney has leaned heavily on the comic book maker as one of the pillar's of its business, believing that the films it makes with its library of heroes will drive not just box office, but also revenue from theme park rides and toys.

Its upcoming film slate is peppered with films featuring the various characters from "The Avengers." Due out in 2013 are  "Iron Man 3" and "Thor: The Dark World." The next year will bring "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and "Guardians of the Galaxy," a new super-group film.

Keanu Reeves talks Bill & Ted 3
Duo will be "crushed by responsibility"

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/k/keanu-reeves-talks-bill-ted-3-111185-470-75.jpg)

With Galaxy Quest helmer Dean Parisot newly confirmed to direct, it looks as though progress on Bill & Ted 3 is coming along nicely. Keanu Reeves has taken the time to drop a few new details about what the new film will involve, with our heroes apparently finding themselves "crushed by responsibility".

"We have a nice story," said Reeves in a recent interview with GQ. "We’ll see if anyone else wants to make it." The star was then asked about the various challenges of imagining Bill and Ted as middle-aged men…

"It’s one thing to think about it, but to perform it…" admits Reeves. "One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world. And they haven’t done it. So everybody is kind of like: 'Where is the song?'"

"The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock," he continues. "And we go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and one future 'us' refuses to tell us, and another future 'us' blames us for their lives because we didn’t write the song, so they’re living this terrible life. In one version we’re in jail; in another we’re at some kind of highway motel and they hate us."

Plenty of time-travelling antics as ever, then. Let's hope that little summary piques a studio's interest, and we get to see the Wyld Stallyns reunited sooner rather than later.

First poster and synopsis for Arnie's The Last Stand
He's, er, back!

While Arnold Schwarzenegger can currently be seen firing off one-liners with tongue firmly in cheek in The Expendables 2, he'll soon be taking centre stage in Kim Jee-woon's upcoming action flick, The Last Stand.

Up until now, relatively little was known in terms of plot details, but an official synopsis has now arrived online letting us know exactly what we're in for. Needless to say, it will involve our hero kicking all kinds of arse…

"After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction.

"But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Peter Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow.

"Cortez’ path: straight through Sommerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown."


Sounds quite fun, doesn't it? Meanwhile, a first official poster has also been released, featuring Arnie in his Sheriff's duds, looking as though he means business. "Not in his town. Not on his watch" reads the tagline, moodily.

Co-starring Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro and Genesis Rodriguez, The Last Stand will open in the UK on 25 January 2012. Looks as though Arnie is back to stay...

After a young couple, Benny (Jesse Bradford) and Claire (Lizzy Caplan), stumble into finding the elusive weapon, they embark on a bank robbing spree. With S.H.I.E.L.D. agents (LOST's Titus Welliver and AVENGERS's Maximiliano Hernandez) hot on their trail, it's only a matter of time before the couple have to pay for their crimes.

"Item 47" is available on Marvel Avengers Assemble Blu-ray, out 17th September in UK.

Here's the first official pic from the new Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger movie: The Tomb, with Arnie rocking the silver look.

The film follows Ray Breslin (Stallone), the world's finest designer of high security prisons. After being framed for a crime he did not commit (like people get 'framed' for crimes they did), Breslin's expertise will get put to work in the most challenging test he's ever faced: escaping from a high-tech prison facility he designed. Arnie is an inmate who cares to join him.

Curtis Jackson,Vinnie Jones, Amy Ryan, Sam Neill, Vincent D’Onofrio and Jim Caviezel also star. It'll be out next year.

Sad news!

Top Gun director Tony Scott dies after jumping from Los Angeles bridge


Tony Scott, the British-born Hollywood director behind hits including Top Gun and Crimson Tide, has died after jumping off a Los Angeles bridge, authorities said today.

The 68 year-old, originally from North Shields, North Tyneside, died after he plunged almost 200 feet from the Vincent Thomas Bridge, at lunchtime on Sunday.

(http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02314/tony-scott-travolt_2314646c.jpg)

Witnesses reported seeing the father-of-two calmly parking his black Toyota Prius near the bridge, climb a 10 foot fence on the south side of its apex and leap off "without hesitation" just after 12:30pm local time.

Within hours of his death becoming public, a shocked Hollywood paid tribute to the younger brother of film-maker Sir Ridley Scott, who was frequently seen behind the camera in his signature faded red baseball cap.

The US Coast Guard said officials found a note listing contact information inside his car, parked on an eastbound lane of the cable-suspension bridge, the scene of several Hollywood productions.

A suicide note was later found at the downtown Los Angeles office of the Hollywood legend, who also directed Days Of Thunder and Beverly Hills Cop II.

Unconfirmed reports suggested Scott, who who grew up by the river Tyne in northern England, had depression.

 Today, it was believed that his actress wife, Donna Scott, who appeared in several of her husband's films, was being comforted by friends and family at their Beverly Hills home. The pair had twin 12 year-old boys Frank and Max.

He had been married twice previously, firstly to Gerry Scott whom he divorced in 1974 after seven years of marriage and the Glynis Sanders, an advertising executive whom he divorced after a year of marriage in 1987.

“I can confirm that Tony Scott has indeed passed away,” said his publicist, Simon Halls.

“The family asks that their privacy be respected at this time.”

A port mortem examination will be performed later today. One lane of the eastbound side of the bridge was closed as investigations continued by the Los Angeles Police Department and the coroner's office.

Today colleagues and fans struggled to explain why the successful director, whose full name was Anthony David Scott, would commit suicide as many took to Twitter to post their tributes.

Friends told how he would always send personal, handwritten notes and "always drew a cartoon caricature of himself, smoking a cigar, with his hat colored in red".

(http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02314/tony-scott-family_2314600c.jpg)

Over his successful career he directed more than two dozen movies and television shows and produced nearly 50 titles.

The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office said a dive team using sonar equipment pulled the body from the murky waters in Los Angeles harbour several hours later after a massive search.

Lieutenant Joe Bale, a watch commander for the coroner's office, said there was no evidence to suggest foul play.

“At this point we are investigating this as a suicide,” he said. “There is nothing to lead us to believe otherwise. A note was left in the car.

"We will go where the facts take us. We have no reason to believe it was not a suicide."

 Born in 1944, Scott went to art school where he became interested in cinematography. His first foray into films started as a teenager in front of the camera, starring in his older brother film Boy and Bicycle.

He later earned a masters degree from London's Royal College of Arts and directed the 1971 picture Loving Memory for the British Film Institute from an original script financed by Albert Finney.

After making a string of television commercials, he landed his first feature director's role in 1983 with The Hunger, a sexually charged vampire film starring Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie and Susan Sarandon.

He would later become known for his behind the scenes work, in which he was known for his distinctive style to his films using fast editing and digital effects. He shot to fame in the 1980s with a string of action films.

But he never won critical aclaim or an Academy Award throughout his illustrious, with critics often dismissing his movies for emphasising style over substance.

 Nonetheless his big-budget movies, mainly action thrillers, attracted some of Hollywood's biggest names including Denzel Washington, Tom Cruise, Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, Robert De Niro, Gene Hackman, Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt.

"The biggest edge I live on is directing. That's the most scary, dangerous thing you can do in your life," Scott said in 1995.

"The scariest thing in my life is the first morning of production on all my movies. It's the fear of failing, the loss of face and a sense of guilt that everybody puts their faith in you and not coming through."

He operated Scott Free Productions with his 74 year-old brother Ridley in Los Angeles almost 40 years after the pair formed London-based commercial production company Ridley Scott Associates.

Top Gun, a film about the US fighter jets starring Cruise and Kelly McGillis, was one of the highest-grossing films of the 1980s and quickly became a cult classic.

Since its release in 1986, it has grossed almost $354 million (£225 million) worldwide.

Top Gun's producers, Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, signed Scott to direct the movie after being impressed by a commercial he had done for Swedish automaker Saab in the early 1980s in which a car races a fighter jet.

The trio worked together again four years later on the NASCAR-set Days of Thunder, which also starred Cruise and his soon to become wife Nicole Kidman.

He believed the actor's youthful charm, optimism and never-ending energy would guarantee success.

"Tom can sit behind the wheel of a race car and smoke a cigarette and this movie will make a fortune," Scott once said.

"I went back and I stole from all race movies to date. I took the better elements, then tried to build on them. Really, the speed, the energy and the placement of the audience inside some of the cars came in the editing room. ...

"I'm always pushing for something new and fresh in the way things are shot, and the rest happens in the editing room. ... The real speed comes from the cutters and what they do with the celluloid."

Crimson Tide, the 1995 submarine thriller, was another blockbuster whose cast included Washington and Hackman. He directed Hackman and Smith three years later in Enemy of the State, an espionage thriller.

 Scott frequently worked with Washington, most recently on the runaway train drama Unstoppable in 2010.

Scott and Washington collaborated on other films including Man on Fire, Deja Vu and The Taking of Pelham 123, which also starred John Travolta.

Other films included True Romance, Man On Fire, The Hunger, The Last Boy Scout, The Fan and Spy Game.

The Scott brothers were working jointly on a film called "Killing Lincoln," based on the best seller by Bill O'Reilly.

Their company also produced the CBS dramas "NUMB3RS" and "The Good Wife" as well as a 2011 documentary about the Battle of Gettysburg for the History Channel.

His most recent production with his brother was Coma, a four-hour medical thriller which was due for release next month.

He was also reported to be in production as the director of a film called Emma's War about a British aid worker in Sudan who marries a warlord seeking to control part of the country.

 In 2002, the Scott brothers won an Emmy award for the television movie The Gathering Storm.

He said during an interview before the release of Taking of Pelham 123: "My whole career I’ve always tried to avoid CGI, whether it’s planes, cars or trains.

"It’s something in terms of the drama and the performances that gives me a reality and more of an edge.

"I like changing the pace of my life, changing my discipline. It gives me ideas for how to see the world differently."

Last year Cruise confirmed talks were underway about a sequel to the 1986 hit Top Gun that would see him reprise the role of fighter pilot Lt Pete “Maverick” Mitchell.

On the red carpet in Munich, Cruise confirmed he has been developing a script with Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

Cruise toured a Naval Air Station near Fallon, Nevada, last week preparing to film the sequel, according to local reports.

Completed in 1963, the 6,060-foot bridge, which spans San Pedro and Terminal Island in Los Angeles, is a known suicide spot. It has been used in movies including Charlie's Angels And The Fast and the Furious.

With the uber Hollywood cred Joss Whedon has after Avengers, if he somehow became involved in the movie I'm sure casting Fillion would be his first action.

Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan to produce beverly hills cop series

”Get the f*#k outta here!” because Beverly Hills Cop is getting a TV show spin-off. After last year’s heartbreaking news about Beverly Hills Cop 4, fans were disappointed by the studio’s decision to shelf the fourth installment in the mega successful franchise. But good news emerged soon after and Eddie Murphy was set to produce a TV series based on the hit action-comedy franchise. That was a year ago and today, almost a year later, we can finally bring you some more exciting updates.

Vulture reports The Shield creator, Shawn Ryan, is working with Eddie Murphy and Sony Pictures Television for a Beverly Hills Cop TV series. To get us even more excited about the news, the duo just pitched their show idea to the networks yesterday. In addition to producing, Murphy will also have a small starring stint in the show, hopefully to reprise his role as the hilarious Axel Foley.

According to last year’s Rolling Stone interview with Murphy, the proposed show would follow “Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit.” At the time, Murphy was already open to appearing on the show in that capacity, saying he would “do the pilot, show up here and there,” and that still seems to be the case with the actor set to star in the pilot and a few “special” episodes of the series first season (if and when it gets one).

Vulture’s sources described the show’s pitch as a “standard buddy-cop show designed to be a crime procedural with some strong comedic elements.”

More official details are bound to emerge any day now. The project has yet to find a network home, but with Ryan and Murphy on board, lets just that the show is off to a very good start.

         (http://i656.photobucket.com/albums/uu290/HellbourneFrosthate/images/Justice-League.png)

The fan community is abuzz today with a new rumor that suggests that Batman's next big screen appearance might not be in the proposed Warner Bros. reboot but could, instead, be as a team member of the seemingly fast-tracked Justice League. The story, which originated at Batman on Film, suggests that the superhero ensemble will be the next DC Comics superhero adaptation after next summer's Man of Steel.

The major element that appears to lend credence to this report is the fact that Justice League has a completed screenplay from Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall while another solo adventure of the Caped Crusader currently exists almost entirely in speculation. Some have suggested that Warner Bros. should find a way to continue Christopher Nolan's trilogy while others have called for a more dramatic reboot of the character, potentially adapting a property like "Batman Beyond."

What's important to remember is that, as much as fans wish it to be the case, there's currently no guarantee that Justice League will share a cinematic universe with any films past, present or future. Although the approach certainly worked for Marvel's The Avengers, Warner Bros. doesn't necessarily need to continue with Henry Cavill as Superman nor would they need to keep whoever they cast as Batman for a franchise reboot.

After all, when the studio was moving forward with George Miller's now-defunct motion-capture take on the property a few years ago, it was being planned to feature a Batman unlike anything in Nolan's films and the two projects would have seen release independently of one another.

That being said, Justice League could indeed wind up the launching place for a new take on the Dark Knight, but only time will tell for sure what Warner Bros. has in mind for the DC superheroes.

Metal Gear Solid movie announced
Courtesy of Columbia Pictures

X-Men and Spider-Man producer Avi Arad announced at the Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary event in Japan that Metal Gear Solid is ready to become a movie.

There has been talk in the past of Metal Gear Solid making its way to Hollywood, but it never quite made it. Metal Gear designer Hideo Kojima did hint at a movie earlier this year, but suggested that the series wasn't ready to move into Hollywood just yet.

But clearly, now it is: Avi Arad took to the stage as a special guest at the Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary event and announced the Metal Gear movie.

Arad, the producer of X-Men and Spider-Man said "for many years I fought to bring comics to theaters...and video games are the comics of today."

What would you like to see in a Metal Gear Solid movie?

As reported yesterday, ABC has picked up Joss Whedon's "S.H.I.E.L.D." to the pilot stage as a part of his exclusive deal with Marvel Studios. It wasn't long after this was reported that we all started to wonder where it would fit into the larger scheme of the Marvel films.

Variety now has some quotes from Whedon about the project who said not to call it a 'spinoff.' Whedon also said the series will be 'autonomous' to The Avengers sequel that he is writing and directing.

Whedon will write the pilot alongside his brother, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen (who previously worked with Whedon on "Dollhouse" and "Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog"). All three will also join Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb as executive producers. It's rumored that Whedon may also direct the pilot, but that nothing is confirmed at this time.

So how involved will Whedon be? Variety's Cynthia Littleton tweeted that "[Joss] reserves right to pepper in bits here and there. His bro Jed and Maurissa T. will be showrunners, he'll just show up every now and then 'and take credit for everything.'"

Writers Give New God of War Movie Details

In July, it was announced that Sony Pictures had brought on board Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to write the new screenplay for the studio's God of War movie. In addition to work on the upcoming Pacific Rim, Melton and Dunstan have worked on films in the "Saw" series and the recent Piranha 3DD.

On Thursday, IGN got a chance to ask the duo about the big screen adaptation of the video game series. They told the site that their first step in updating David Self's previous draft of the script was to humanize the main character Kratos more. "In the same way that Batman was grounded with Christopher Nolan's rendition, we were attempting to do that with Kratos so that when we meet him -- like they're doing in this newest game, which is sort of a prequel to the original -- we're seeing him before he became the Ghost of Sparta, when he was just a Spartan warrior and he had family and kids."

They added that "In the game... there's that attack from the barbarians and Kratos has to call upon Ares to help him. Really, that's going to be our first act break. Before then, he's going to be mortal, and he's going to have his family. We're going to learn about him and understand how he operates. So it's potentially 30 minutes -- give or take -- of building up this character so that, when he does turn and becomes the Ghost of Sparta, we understand him as a human and we understand the journey that he's going to take. We're emotionally invested, so that it could go beyond just this one movie."

They will also be making the villain, Ares, a more proactive villain in the movie. "In the game, you know, he's immortal, and he doesn't really do much besides raid Athens... So we're trying to build him up a bit more, too, so that he can become a true villain."

Michael Clarke Duncan, 'Green Mile' Actor, Dead at 54

(http://www.thewrap.com/movies/sites/default/files/imagecache/scale_width_640/main_image/green.biginside.jpg)

Michael Clarke Duncan, an Oscar nominee for “The Green Mile” died Monday at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 54.

Publicist Joy Fehily released a statement from Clarke’s fiancée, the Rev. Omarosa Manigault, saying that Duncan died Monday morning after nearly two months of hospitalization following a July 13 heart attack.

Duncan, who was nominated for an Academy Award for best supporting actor and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of  death-row inmate John Coffey in 1999's "The Green Mile," most recently starred as Leo Knox in the Fox series "The Finder." He also appeared in the film hits "Armageddon," "The Whole Nine Yards," "Planet of the Apes" and "Kung Fu Panda."

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Duncan "suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered," the statement said.

Duncan was born in 1957 and grew up on the south side of Chicago in a single-parent household with his sister, Judy, and mother, Jean Duncan. He attended Alcorn State University, but left early to support his family when his mother became ill.

Duncan worked as ditch digger and nightclub bouncer after his college years and moved to Los Angeles to launch an acting career in 1995.He became a bodyguard for actors Will Smith and Martin Lawrence and began to draw attention after appearing in 1998's "Armageddon."

Comedian Steve Harvey was among those offering condolences on Twitter. "I will miss my friend, Michael Clarke Duncan. What an incredible soldier in God's Plan," he tweeted.

"Rest in Peace to my brother who paved the way for me and many Black actors," tweeted actor Terry Crews. "Honored to have known him and called him a friend to me and my family."

Clarke served as a spokesman for a number of causes. Earlier this year, he appeared in a video for PETA, the animal rights organization, in which he spoke of how much better he felt since becoming a vegetarian three years earlier.

Duncan also starred in a public service announcement for the American Stroke Association to raise awareness of strokes.

Just to add to his list of credits - I'd actually forgotten about his roles in gaming, but here's a grouping of voice work from [Kotaku (http://kotaku.com/5940172/remembering-the-video-game-work-of-michael-clarke-duncan/gallery/1)]:

Quote
After establishing himself as a Hollywood actor, Duncan continued to work in games. He voiced the character of Atlas in God of War II, Benjamin in the first Saints Row, a crime lord in survival horror game The Suffering: Ties That Bind, the character of Ygori in fantasy game Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone, and SEAL Operative Wardog in tactical shooter SOCOM II: U.S. Navy SEALs. Other games he did voice work for include first-person-shooter Soldier of Fortune and Star Trek Klingon Academy.

'Iron Man 3' trailer to debut this month

The first trailer for Iron Man 3 will launch on October 23.

The new film is the first Marvel movie to follow the phenomenal success of The Avengers, in which Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark and his alter ego Iron Man played a crucial role in forming the superhero team.

(http://i1.cdnds.net/12/23/618x410/ironman3large.jpg)

According to E! News, the trailer for the film, which switches the focus back to Stark and Iron Man, will launch online at 12.01am PT on October 23 (8.01am GMT, October 24).

Production on the blockbuster had to be halted for a month and a half after star Downey Jr injured his ankle while performing a stunt. However, filming resumed earlier this week, with the actor back on set sporting the Iron Man costume.

Marvel executive vice-president Victoria Alonso has promised to "do right by the fans" with Iron Man 3, and has already claimed it will the best film in the series.

The film is directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and features Sir Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall and Guy Pearce alongside the returning Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, and Jon Favreau.

Iron Man 3 will be released worldwide on April 24, 2013.

This doesn't fall under "Movie & TV News" or "Posters"...so I'm guessing it's "Stuff" -


Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey have spent 800 hours across 12 weeks building this Lego replica of the Batcave. It's a 20,000 piece structure, weighing roughly 100 lbs. with its own lighting system and motor powered elevators, a working Batmobile platform etc. Call it a labor of love, or a huge time waster....I call it:  O0

Ghostbusters 3 Planned For Summer 2013 Shoot

Rumored for more than two decades, Ghostbusters 3 appears to finally be moving forward, albeit without leading man Bill Murray. Deadline reports that the current schedule calls for Ivan Reitman to return as director with a summer 2013 production start being targeted.

Dan Aykroyd previously confirmed reports that the plot will revolve around a new generation of Ghostbusters and hinted at the states of his and Harold Ramis' characters.

"My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can't drive the cadillac," he said, "He's got a bad knee and can't carry the packs... Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that's the promise. We're gonna hand it to a new generation."

Etan Cohen was recently brought in to rewrite the script, working from a draft by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg.

Assuming Ghostbusters 3 hits its production mark, it's likely that the sequel will be released in 2014, tying into the original film's 30th anniversary.

Bruce Campbell talks Evil Dead remake
“The movie is not funny”

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/b/bruce-campbell-talks-evil-dead-remake-118906-470-75.jpg)

Bruce Campbell has done more than his fair share of legwork in promoting Fede Alvarez’s upcoming reboot of The Evil Dead, but the lantern-jawed star has still found time to give the project another push in a new interview with Machinima.

Explaining what we can expect from the film, Campbell stresses that this is a departure from the screwball comedy of the last two films, and a return to the genuine fear created by the original.

“The movie is not funny,” he explains. “The movie is old-fashioned, retro horror. There’s not a snappy line in the whole movie. The first movie wasn’t like that and this is a remake of the first movie. He’s matching the tone of the first movie which is not har-de-har-har.”

So if the film isn’t remotely comedic, how did Bruce contribute in his role as producer?

“We got our little fingers in this pie, man,” says Campbell reassuringly. “We want to custom-make it for fans. We’re not some random cigar-chomping producers looking for a horror movie to remake. This is our baby.”

And having seen the movie, Campbell is convinced that audiences are going to be suitably scared out of their wits.

“It’s going to be a horror extravaganza,” he says. “Not in terms of size, but in terms of the intensity of the horror you will experience. This movie is going to blow the fricking doors off. It’s just five new actors and a nasty book they should have left alone."

Evil Dead will open in the UK on 12 April 2013.

Disney to Buy Lucasfilm for $4.05 Billion; New 'Star Wars' Movie Set for 2015

(http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/2012/10/robert_iger_george_lucas_signing_a_l.jpg)

The Walt Disney Co. has acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in cash and stock and announced a new Star Wars movie to be released in 2015.

Kathleen Kennedy, current co-chair of Lucasfilm, will become Lucasfilm's president, reporting to Walt Disney Studios chair Alan Horn as part of the stock and cash transaction. Disney is paying approximately half the price in cash and will issue 40 million shares of stock, the company said Tuesday in a statement.

Kennedy will serve as executive producer on new Star Wars feature films, with the franchise's creator and Lucasfilm founder George Lucas, 68, serving as creative consultant. There are plans to release a new Star Wars film every two or three years.

“For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” said Lucas, chairman and CEO of Lucasfilm, in a statement. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. I’m confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, Star Wars will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come. Disney’s reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment and consumer products.”

The deal comes on the heels of Disney's 2009 acquisition of Marvel Entertainment and its 2006 purchase of Pixar Animation Studios, two potent entertainment brands that appeal to families. The Disney board has approved the Lucasfilm acquisition, but it is subject to antitrust scrutiny by the U.S. government. 

While Lucas and Disney have had a long relationship, it has been most visible at the company's theme parks, where Star Tours and other attractions have been popular for more than two decades.

However, the Stars Wars movies have been distributed through Twentieth Century Fox, which will now be cut out of future Star Wars and other related business. (Though Fox already has been set to release 3D versions of the past Star Wars movies, it is unclear if that relationship will be impacted by the sale. The acquisition also raises questions about the future of Stars Wars: Clone Wars, a highly popular series on Cartoon Network, which is owned by a Disney competitor, Turner Broadcasting, a division of Time Warner.)

Disney also is acquiring Lucasfilm’s hugely profitable consumer products and merchandising businesses, which should be a good fit for the buyer.

“Lucasfilm reflects the extraordinary passion, vision and storytelling of its founder, George Lucas,” said Bob Iger, Disney chairman and CEO, in a statement. “This transaction combines a world-class portfolio of content including Star Wars, one of the greatest family entertainment franchises of all time, with Disney’s unique and unparalleled creativity across multiple platforms, businesses and markets to generate sustained growth and drive significant long-term value.”

In a call with investors, Iger said the first new Star Wars movie was targeted for 2015, and that the company planned for another movie every 2-3 years after that. Disney releases 8-10 pictures per year, including one from Pixar and up to two from Marvel Studios. The plan is for a Star Wars movie in one of those tentpole slots.

Iger told investors that Star Wars was a perfect proerty for TV, particularly the company's young male-skewing network Disney XD, and plans to expand its presence in its theme parks.

In addition, while Star Wars merchandise has been a big business, that business has mostly been domestic, Iger said. Using Marvel as a model, Disney plans to grow international marketing of Star Wars products by increasing the brand's presence in their stores, with more toys and with with other products.

The acquisition also raises questions about the future of Stars Wars: Clone Wars, a highly popular series on Cartoon Network, which is owned by a Disney competitor, Turner Broadcasting, a division of Time Warner.)

Disney also is acquiring Lucasfilm’s hugely profitable consumer products and merchandising businesses, which should be a good fit for the buyer.

“Lucasfilm reflects the extraordinary passion, vision and storytelling of its founder, George Lucas,” said Bob Iger, Disney chairman and CEO, in a statement. “This transaction combines a world-class portfolio of content including Star Wars, one of the greatest family entertainment franchises of all time, with Disney’s unique and unparalleled creativity across multiple platforms, businesses and markets to generate sustained growth and drive significant long-term value.”

In a call with investors, Iger said the first new Star Wars movie was targeted for 2015, and that the company planned for another movie every 2-3 years after that. Disney releases 8-10 pictures per year, including one from Pixar and up to two from Marvel Studios. The plan is for a Star Wars movie in one of those tentpole slots.

Iger told investors that Star Wars was a perfect proerty for TV, particularly the company's young male-skewing network Disney XD, and plans to expand its presence in its theme parks.

In addition, while Star Wars merchandise has been a big business, that business has mostly been domestic, Iger said. Using Marvel as a model, Disney plans to grow international marketing of Star Wars products by increasing the brand's presence in their stores, with more toys and with with other products.

Big news indeed. But for now, let the comic relief begin!

Hobbits get serious about air safety

(http://cdn.cnet.com.au/story_media/339342297/air_1.jpg)

Weta has teamed up with Air New Zealand to produce a Hobbit-inspired safety video that includes a cameo by Peter Jackson.

Those airline safety videos they make you watch as the plane taxis out can be a massive yawn-fest. We may or may not be guilty of tuning out in favour of reading something vastly more interesting — the instructions on the air sickness bag, for example.

Air New Zealand understands this. For a while now, the airline has been producing funny safety videos in a variety of styles in order to get people to pay attention.

The latest — An Unexpected Briefing — was made in partnership with Peter Jackson's Weta, and features a motley cast of elves, hobbits, dwarves and other assorted characters from Middle Earth.

Conclusion: Every airline safety video from now on should have at least one hobbit.

Mark Hamill Talks Star Wars: Episode VII

As details continue to flood in regarding the just-announced Star Wars: Episode VII, EW managed to catch up with Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, who reveals that he was made aware of plans for a third trilogy last August.

"[George Lucas] asked Carrie [Fisher] and I to have lunch with him and we did," Hamill says, "I thought he was going to talk about either his retirement or the 'Star Wars' TV series that I’ve heard about — which I don’t think we were going to be involved in anyway, because that takes place between the prequels and the ones we were in and, if Luke were in them, he’d be anywhere from a toddler to a teenager so they’d get an age-appropriate actor — or the 3-D releases. So when he said, 'We decided we’re going to do Episodes VII, VIII, and IX,” I was just gobsmacked. “What? Are you nuts?!” [Laughs]"

Although Hamill learned of the plans for more films, he was as surprised as anyone at the announcement of Lucasfilm being bought by Disney when he read about it online yesterday. He also doesn't know what involvement - if any - he'll have in future Star Wars films, but he remains optimistic as a fan.

"I can see both sides of it," he says. "Because in a way, there was a beginning, a middle, and an end and we all lived happily ever after and that’s the way it should be — and it’s great that people have fond memories, if they do have fond memories. But on the other hand, there’s this ravenous desire on the part of the true believers to have more and more and more material. It’s one of those things: people either just don’t care for it or are passionate about it. I guess that defines what cult movies are all about."

Hamill reiterates that Kathleen Kennedy will be handling a lot of the work on the new films, leaving Lucas to his newfound retirement and plans for a charitable educational foundation funded by the multi-billion dollar sale.

Earlier this week it was announced that the Battlestar Galactica prequel series, subtitled "Blood and Chrome," will finally be seeing the light of day in the form of a web series. The original two-hour pilot will be broken up into ten 7-12 minutes 'webisodes' that will be aired on Machinima's YouTube channel throughout the next four weeks.

Today, they've released the first clip from the new series. It features Luke Pasqualino as William Adama and you can watch the action packed clip below!

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly find himself at odds with Coker (Ben Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

Joining Pasqualino and Cotton in the cast is Lili Bordan, who will play Dr. Beka Kelly, a Ph.D. who worked for Graystone Industries that created the Cylon robots. Currently assigned to a secret military mission, Beka and Adama quickly establish a rapport.

Watch Mark Hamill Predict Star Wars Episode VII Back In 1983

George Lucas has talked for years about a nine-film Star Wars series, which would include both prequels and sequels to the original trilogy and make Star Wars geeks keel over in delight. Then, of course, we got the bloated and overly digital prequels, and fans stopped feverishly anticipating Star Wars content while Lucas started saying that he was done directing Star Wars films. The nine-film series that people had wanted so much for decades seemed all but dead.

That all changed, of course, when Disney bought the rights to Lucasfilm last week and announced that they were planning a brand-new trilogy of Star Wars films. Suddenly the sci-fi universe that Lucas created seemed crammed with possibilities, and when Mark Hamill revealed that Lucas had tipped him off about the new series, it seemed possible we might be seeing the return of Luke Skywalker-- or maybe just a Hamill cameo? Turns out, this isn't the first time Hamill has been out talking about coming back to Star Wars… in fact, he was doing it almost 20 years ago. Here's a recently re-circulated video from 1983 of Hamill talking about the possibilities for more Star Wars movies after Return of the Jedi:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKD1xx0u-vs

And via Movies.com, here's another video of Hamill making a weirdly prescient prediction around the same time, saying Lucas told him he'd probably be back playing Luke Skywalker in 2011. Not so far off!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UGV7WVB-bA

Of course, even Hamill doesn't know if he'll be called upon to appear in Star Wars Episode VII, currently targeted for a 2015 release. But it is nice to look into the wayback machine and tell all those optimists from the early 80s, "Hey, this is really going to happen!" Even if some pesky, unloved prequels got in the way first.

Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan to produce beverly hills cop series

”Get the f*#k outta here!” because Beverly Hills Cop is getting a TV show spin-off. After last year’s heartbreaking news about Beverly Hills Cop 4, fans were disappointed by the studio’s decision to shelf the fourth installment in the mega successful franchise. But good news emerged soon after and Eddie Murphy was set to produce a TV series based on the hit action-comedy franchise. That was a year ago and today, almost a year later, we can finally bring you some more exciting updates.

Vulture reports The Shield creator, Shawn Ryan, is working with Eddie Murphy and Sony Pictures Television for a Beverly Hills Cop TV series. To get us even more excited about the news, the duo just pitched their show idea to the networks yesterday. In addition to producing, Murphy will also have a small starring stint in the show, hopefully to reprise his role as the hilarious Axel Foley.

According to last year’s Rolling Stone interview with Murphy, the proposed show would follow “Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit.” At the time, Murphy was already open to appearing on the show in that capacity, saying he would “do the pilot, show up here and there,” and that still seems to be the case with the actor set to star in the pilot and a few “special” episodes of the series first season (if and when it gets one).

Vulture’s sources described the show’s pitch as a “standard buddy-cop show designed to be a crime procedural with some strong comedic elements.”

More official details are bound to emerge any day now. The project has yet to find a network home, but with Ryan and Murphy on board, lets just that the show is off to a very good start.

Beverly Hills Cop TV Pilot Casts Its Lead

(http://www.cinemablend.com/images/sections/49324/beverly_hills_cop_49324.jpg)

When we first learned that a Beverly Hills Cop sequel TV pilot was in the works, we were left to wonder who would play the starring role of Axel Foley's son? That question has been answered! The role of Aaron Foley will be played by stand-up comedian Brandon T. Jackson, otherwise known to Tropic Thunder fans as Alpa Chino.

We learned back in August that Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan were developing a TV pilot that follows up on Murphy's beloved 80s comedy Beverly Hills Cop, and that CBS picked up the pilot, which would follow Axel's blue-collar police officer son Aaron, who attempts to get out from under his father's shadow by heading to Beverly Hills to deal with the criminal elements in the wealthy neighborhood. Murphy is expected to guest star in the pilot, and might play a recurring role, should the comedy go to series.

TVLine reports that Brandon T. Jackson has landed the lead role in the project. In addition to Tropic Thunder, he's appeared in Fast & Furious, Tooth Fairy and Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. He's also no stranger to sequels or to playing the son of a movie cop in a comedy. Jackson played the role of Trent, the stepson to Martin Lawrence's character Malcolm Turner in Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son. Hopefully he's the right man for this Beverly Hills Cop pilot (you can't really go wrong with Alpa Chino, right?), as I'm sure I'm not alone in having high hopes that the project is successful and makes its way onto CBS' primetime line-up.

Splinter Cell Movie Enlists Tom Hardy as Sam Fisher

(http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/news/TOM-HARDY_SPLINTER-CELL_UBISOFT_.jpg)

Tom Hardy is set to take on Tom Clancy, as the actor who played Bane in the Dark Knight Rises has signed on to play Sam Fisher in Ubisoft's movie adaptation of Splinter Cell. Eric Warren Singer, who also wrote th 2009 Clive Owen action thriller 'The International' is on board to pen the script, while Ubisoft is still in talks with studios.

Apparently, Ubisoft has held preliminary talks with Warner Bros and Paramount about the Splinter Cell movie. The Assassin's Creed movie meanwhile, which is set to star Michael Fassbender is with New Regency and Fox. There's no plot details for Splinter Cell as yet, with Variety simply reporting that Hardy will play Fisher.

"Tom Hardy is currently one of the biggest talents in the film industry, and he has a phenomenal ability to take on complex and varied roles with his broad range of acting skills," said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures. "His involvement in the 'Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell' movie is exciting news for movie and video game fans alike. Meanwhile, Eric Singer is one of the most talented writers of the moment, and ... we're confident he'll bring a fresh approach and create a thrilling story ... while still respecting all the codes and traditions of the franchise that are so important to fans."

There's no date as yet for the Splinter Cell movie, but Splinter Cell: Blacklist is out in 2013.

Zack Snyder Confirms Man of Steel Trailer Will Be Shown With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Director Zack Snyder has confirmed that the trailer for Man of Steel will be shown with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Here is what he had to say…

On The Trailer: "It's fun. I can't wait for 'The Hobbit,' so it will be fun to see our crazy 'Man of Steel' trailer and then enjoy the Hobbit because that's going to be great," said Snyder. "It just feels like a fun Christmas thing to do, drag the whole family out for that action."

On Michael Shannon as General Zod: "I was just incredibly fortunate to play with those guys who really were giving all they had to bring a level of commitment to the scenes they have together so that audiences will get an opportunity to really have their heroes taken seriously. As serious as I was taking it, and I don't mean that from a depressing kind of way but from a, 'This is important and fun and needs to be given the respect that it deserves,' from that perspective it was so exciting to watch them drink the Kool-Aid of that concept and go all the way."

Star Trek Into Darkness Official Plot Synopsis Revealed

(http://www.cinemablend.com/images/news_img/34273/Star_Trek_Into_Darkness_34273.jpg)

In a few weeks, we’ll know a lot more about J.J. Abrams’ sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, an anticipated film that – to date – has managed to fly under the radar. Oh, we know that most of the original cast is coming back. And we know that the amazing Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing an as-yet-undetermined villain. Paramount plans to unspool a 9-minute preview for Abrams’ film before IMAX presentations on Dec. 14. Audiences also will be able to see a traditional trailer in the 2D versions of the film. And now the studio is revealing an official synopsis.

Many have expressed interest in avoiding specific details about Star Trek Into Darkness< and if you’d like to stay that way, avoid this paragraph. It’s not spoilery, but it absolutely includes specifics you might not want to hear prior to the film’s release. For the rest of you, here’s the official plot synopsis for the next Star Trek film, directly from the studio’s Web site:

(click to show/hide)

Abrams continues to explore Kirk (with Chris Pine in the role), painting him as a rebel and a bit of a loner who finds solace in this dysfunctional family aboard the Enterprise. You have to be intrigued by the promise of the crew returning home (as they once did in the aptly-titled Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home). But instead of bringing rare whales back to space, they’ll be hunting a threat (Cumberbatch) through the deepest reaches of the galaxies. It sounds fantastic. Now, we strap in and wait for those previews on Dec. 14.

Boy Meets World fans, meet the best news you’ll hear all day. TVLine has learned exclusively that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have officially signed on to reprise their roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence in the red-hot Disney Channel pilot Girl Meets World.

The pilot is still in the very early stages of development with Boy Meets World creator and executive producer Michael Jacobs at the helm.

Plans for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" continue to be unveiled as director Bryan Singer's follow-up to "X-Men: First Class" takes shape. The latest news? Hugh Jackman could join the film as Wolverine.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jackman is in talks to reunite with Singer on the new film. This follows the announcement earlier this week that Patrick Stewart would be returning as Professor X and Ian McKellen would be back as Magneto. Both Stewart and McKellen sat out the previous "X-Men" installment, "First Class," and Jackman made only a cameo appearance.

Singer returns to the franchise after other directors made "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "First Class."

The "Days of Future Past" story line is one that's well-known to X-Men fans. It was a two-issue story written by longtime "X-Men" writer Chris Claremont in 1981 and was partially set in an alternative future where mutants were forced into internment camps, watched over by giant robots called Sentinels.

In the present day, the X-Men must work to stop a crucial event that triggers the anti-mutant hysteria that eventually leads to the dystopic future.

In 2001, a Marvel readers poll voted it the 25th most popular Marvel story of all time.

With Stewart, McKellen and Jackman (as well as Singer) returning to the film series, many fans hope to see this was a connector between the original "X-Men" and the prequel "First Class." Many actors from "First Class" are also returning, including Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult.

Jackman is also playing Wolverine in next summer's "The Wolverine," which is a sequel to "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

The X-Men films, it seems, are becoming as convoluted as the original comics.

Dane DeHaan confirmed as Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Sony opts for “brooding outsider” approach

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/d/dane-dehaan-confirmed-as-harry-osborn-in-the-amazing-spider-man-2-122852-470-75.jpg)

Dane DeHaan has officially been confirmed as the new Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with the studio clearly opting for the “brooding outsider” approach to the character.

DeHaan was initially linked to the role before reports emerged claiming that Sony were looking for a more athletic, all-American take on the character. However, it seems that they’ve reverted to their first vision.

Norman Osborn has been a peripheral figure at this stage in proceedings, but depending on how Osborn Sr's story arc plays out, we could well see Harry become a villain, as was the case in Sam Raimi’s trilogy. Casting the intense DeHaan would certainly allow for that contingency.

“Dane is an exciting and extraordinary young actor and he is a fantastic addition to our cast,” said director Marc Webb, before DeHaan tweeted that, “to say I’m excited is an understatement.”

Meanwhile, Jamie Foxx and Shailene Woodley have also been officially confirmed as Electro and Mary-Jane Watson respectively. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will open in the UK on 18 April 2014.

Rumor: Darkseid plays the villain in Justice League movie

(http://img.digitaltrends.com/image/darkseid-625x1000)

Will the Justice League square off against the intergalactic villainy of Darkseid in their inevitable feature film debut? Latino Review certainly seems to think so.

You’ll notice a “rumor” tag on that headline up there. As usual this means you should take a grain of salt with everything we’re about to tell you. Obviously we think this idea has merit or is newsworthy, otherwise we wouldn’t publish it, but as you’re reading the below text please keep in mind that we aren’t guaranteeing anything here.

Alright, now that we’re all on the same page, Latino Review published an “exclusive” report (http://latino-review.com/2012/12/03/exclusive-bad-guy-justice-league/) yesterday which claims that the villain in the inevitable Justice League film will be none other than Darkseid. It’s a convincing report too. After all, the upcoming sequel to The Avengers will feature Thanos, a character who was created as something of a parody of the Darkseid character yet who occupies a very important niche in the Marvel universe: That of the universal-scale villain. For DC Comics parent company Warner Bros. to offer the Justice League an appropriately threatening villain (while also not alienating mainstream viewers too drastically by introducing some fourth-tier threat that only comic book geeks have ever heard of) the film would have to feature Darkseid, as nobody else in the DC Universe fits the bill.

Unfortunately, as convincing as it may be, the Latino Review exclusive seems to be based purely on conjecture. While we agree with the conjecture, it’s difficult to take it at face value when the site fails to cite anyone to back up its claims. Even a vague mention of anonymous insiders would have lent this story a bit of credit. Instead, the site merely says it came upon this information “after some persistent snooping.”

Does this mean that we’re hoping to discredit this rumor? No, not at all. Latino Review has a great track record on this kind of thing, and to be honest, we agree with the conjecture. Darkseid is a perfect double for Thanos, which both provides a villain and sets up the Justice League film to directly compete with The Avengers 2. Likewise, he’s one of the few beings in the DC universe who could be a believable villain for the Justice League. This is, after all, a team comprised of (at least) Superman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, so any bad guy you want to prop up against them is going to have to have some very impressive powers. However, as we mentioned earlier, Warner Bros. most likely wants this villain to be as well known as possible, and given that DC’s other universal-scale threats are relatively unknown among the mass population (your mom has no idea who the Anti-Monitor is) Darkseid is the only reasonable candidate.

Then again, it’s entirely possible that Warner Bros. might take this film in a different direction. A smaller-scale Justice League movie that focuses on the internal strife of the team could be interesting, even without a foe capable of destroying worlds on a whim. The film is theoretically scheduled for release in the summer of 2015, so there’s still a lot of time for the company to change its mind on which direction to take this story. Once we have more solid details on what Warner Bros. has planned, we’ll let you know.

I can't wait for the wave of comic novices to start accusing the Justice League movie of ripping off the Avengers.   #)

Trailers look interesting, in the way Zombieland held some of the same elements (of course minus Woody Harrelson character) - I do remember liking the cover for the book the film's based on:

The one thing I wish these trailers would stop doing is using that damn pulse "BWONG!!" sound effect in their soundtracks:

I have no idea BWONG what you are BWONG talking BWONG a..BWONG..bout.

(click to show/hide)


(click to show/hide)

but that sound is kinna awesome though...

Don't really mind the sound itself, it's just how over-used it is now. I'm expecting the next Adam Sandler film to incorporate it somehow ... :P

The Fantastic Four definitely deserves better than they're movies have given, although I did enjoy the sequel more than expected.

However, I do wonder who will be playing Human Torch...

Matt Damon talks Bourne 4
Says he approached Jonathan Nolan to write the script

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/m/matt-damon-talks-bourne-4-123525-470-75.jpg)

Matt Damon recently reasoned that it would be tricky for him to do another Bourne film after The Bourne Legacy tinkered with the events of that universe, but from the sounds of his latest interview, he could still be open to the possibility.

“Neither of us is against it,” he said, referring to director Paul Greengrass. “I would love to do another one. I love that character. To me, the reason to make that movie is because people want to see it. Paul and I have said that to each other.

“We don’t take for granted the fact that we’ve built an audience for Bourne, that’s a real privilege. But our part of that bargain is that the movie is good and belongs with the other three. Until we can deliver that, we just can’t make it.”

When asked what else would have to be in place, Damon’s answer was interesting, revealing that he had previously sounded out Jonathan Nolan as a potential screenwriter.

“Just a couple things, really. Paul Greengrass has to want to do it, and secondly and equally important, it comes down to Paul and I knowing what the hell we want to do. We just don’t have a story, and we haven’t had one.

“I quietly went to Jonah Nolan, because he and his brother Chris did such a brilliant job on Batman and that whole mythology. I just said, can you put your brain on this? I can’t figure it out. And he took a run at it and he couldn’t crack it either. Paul and I have been talking about it for years. And we can’t quite see what the movie would be. If we could get line of sight on that…”

Jackie Chan confirms involvement in Expendables 3
Also says he’s up for Rush Hour 4

(http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/j/jackie-chan-confirms-involvement-in-expendables-3-124178-470-75.jpg)

Jackie Chan has confirmed that he will appear in The Expendables 3.

The action star announced his involvement at a press conference for CZ12 (AKA Chinese Zodiac).

“Sly had invited me to be in Expendables 2 but I was too busy filming CZ12 and couldn't make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes.”

He also said that the next film he’s working on could possibly become Rush Hour 4. Going by the working title Skip Tracer, the film’s said to be another East-meets-West comedy, and Chris Tucker’s apparently looking at the script.

“The script is currently viewed by Chris Tucker. Personally, I feel that if he were to pick it up, it would be better if we turned it into Rush Hour 4 but I do think that three movies for the franchise is a perfect ending. It would be better to start a new buddy movie with someone new.”

The Expendables 3 doesn’t have a release date pencilled in, but with Stallone lining up ageing action stars like they’re going out of fashion (erm…) expect more news on this one soon.

Quote
Today, AMC announces the season 4 pick-up of The Walking Dead.

AMC also jointly announces with Glen Mazzara today that for future seasons, the two parties have mutually decided to part ways. Glen guided the series creatively for seasons 2 and 3. AMC is grateful for his hard work. We are both proud of our shared success.

Both parties acknowledge that there is a difference of opinion about where the show should go moving forward, and conclude that it is best to part ways. This decision is amicable and Glen will remain on for post-production on season 3B as showrunner and executive producer.

'Hanna' Writer to Pen 'Shadow of Colossus' for Sony
Josh Trank (Chronicle) attached to direct


(http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/thumbnail_570x321/2013/01/shadow_of_colossus_a_l.jpg)

Seth Lochhead, the Canadian-born scribe who co-wrote the action film Hanna, has been tapped to work on Shadow of the Colossus, Sony’s adaptation of the popular PlayStation 2 video game.

Josh Trank is attached to direct the project and came on board in May 2012 after being launched by his hit sci-fi pic Chronicle. He will oversee the writing of the script. Justin Marks wrote an early draft of the script when the project was initially set up in 2009.

The game’s story involves a young man named Wander, who, riding his trusty steed Argo, travels a world defeating 16 colossal beings in order to resurrect a girl named Mono.

Kevin Misher is producing. Misher Films’ Andy Berman and Kevin Chang are overseeing.

Lochhead has The Governess, a top secret project being produced by Michael Bay, set up at Warner Bros. and has written an adaptation of sci-fi novel The Age of Miracles for Bill Pohlad’s River Road Entertainment.

Hanna was an intriguingly off-beat 2011 action movie directed by Joe Wright and starring Saoirse Ronan as a teenager trained to be an assassin by her father, played by Eric Bana.

Anna Paquin and Ellen Page bring Rogue and Kitty Pride back for 'Days of Future Past'
Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore and Ellen Page to be reunited in sequel

As "X-Men: Days of Future Past" prepares to start shooting, director Bryan Singer (who directed the first two "X-Men" films last decade) has revealed that even more former "X-Men" stars have signed on for the film.

Based on the fan favorite storyline, "Days of Future Past" will feature both the mutant heroes of the cinematic past and present, and it looks like Rogue, Iceman and Kitty Pryde will be along for the ride.

Singer has just confirmed that "X-Men" stars Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore and Ellen Page are joining the swelling ranks of the upcoming sequel to "X-Men: First Class." He even included a shout-out to "X-Men: The Last Stand" director Brett Ratner.

He tweeted, "Very excited to welcome #annapaquin, @ellenpage & @shawnrashmore to #XMen #DaysofFuturePast - thank you @BrettRatner for letting them live!"

The trio will be reunited with Hugh Jackman, who is returning as Wolverine, while Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will also reprise their respective roles as Magneto and Professor X.

'Superman Lives' Could Find New Life In A Kickstarter-Funded Documentary

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.comicsalliance.com/media/2013/01/supermanlivescage.jpeg)

It's no secret that the Tim Burton-Kevin Smith-Nicolas Cage, Superman Lives project is one of the greatest "what the hell happened there?" stories in the comic book movie realm. It seems that almost every few months, some new photo, video or news tidbit manifests online, challenging our notion of just how crazy could that project might have been (electric suit or greasy hair anyone?). Now, a new documentary aims to sift through all of the insanity to bring us comprehensive details... provided it can raise the capital on Kickstarter.

Tentatively titled, The Death of "Superman Lives: What Happened?, Jon Schnepp's documentary intends to tell the story of the various attempts to get the Man of Steel off the ground between 1987 and 2006. His plan is to interview as many people involved with project as possible as well as recreate scenes from the script.

The goal of the Kickstarter is to reach $98,000, with the intention of having the film ready to preview by this year's San Diego Comic-Con International. As of press time, Schnepp has raised more than half that amount, with 39 days left to fund the remainder.

Of course, this Kickstarter comes right on the tails of new photos surfacing of Nic Cage sporting a very traditional-looking Superman suit. Well, as traditional as a rubber muscle suit can look, anyway.
