Sam Raimi and Fede Alvarez reuniting for new thriller

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 07:45:00 GMT

As it’s Halloween, some sort-of-horror news to bring you this morning in the form of a prospective re-team between Evil Dead collaborators Sam Raimi, Fede Alvarez and Rob Tapert.

However, the trio aren’t cooking up an Evil Dead sequel, or even a horror film of any variety, but rather a new thriller entitled A Man In The Dark.

According to Collider, the film will follow a trio of teenagers who specialise in meticulously-planned home robberies, as they eye the final score that should set them up for some time to come…

Having targeted a reclusive blind man with millions of dollars stashed away, it seems like the perfect plan… except for the fact that said blind man is a fully paid-up psychopath, with more than a few tricks up his sleeve…

Alvarez is set to occupy the director’s chair on the film, with Raimi and Tapert supporting on producing duties. An official release date has yet to be confirmed.

First images land for Terminator: Genisys

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 07:25:00 GMT

The first batch of official images for Terminator: Genisys has arrived online courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, showing off the cast in all their heavily-armed glory.

The new shots show Emilia Clarke and co toting some serious weaponry, while pleasingly, there’s also a look at Arnold Schwarzenegger back in action as everyone’s favourite cybernetic badass.

Meanwhile, Clarke has expanded on the notion that her character was brought up by the T-800. “Oh, she’s just a normal girl growing up in a world with a Terminator for a dad,” laughs the star. “What was her first date like? Did he kill many of the dates she brought home?”

Not that Connor will be entirely deprived of love interest, with Jai Courtney confirming that his character, Kyle Reese, will have a romantic storyline with Sarah.

"I had never fallen in love on screen before," says Courtney. "It was interesting to do that, especially when you’ve got a backdrop of the future and the past and all this other shit… endoskeletons, robots…”

Directed by Alan Taylor and co-starring Jason Clarke and Matt Smith, Terminator: Genisys will open in the UK on 3 July 2015.

Rumour: Wonder Woman movie to be first in a trilogy?

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 07:06:00 GMT

With Wonder Woman finally getting her own solo movie, the rumour mill has already clanked into gear regarding exactly what form the spin-off will take, with Bleeding Cool suggesting that the film will be a prequel.

According to the report, the film will be set long before Batman v Superman (where Gal Gadot’s character is set to make her on-screen debut), with the first half of the story taking place on Paradise Island, where various Amazonian factions are at war.

Things are then shaken up by the arrival of a man on the island, with Wonder Woman eventually returning home with him to the world of man. Once there, she is forced to adapt to 1920s life, where women’s rights aren’t quite as advanced as she might have anticipated…

The report goes on to claim that the film will be the first in a trilogy, with a sequel set around the time of WW2, before an eventual third film would bring the action up to date with the rest of the Justice League.

All of which sounds like a sensible way of approaching the character, with Warner set to dig deep into her origins after having her jostle for screen-time with Batman, Superman, Aquaman et al.

Wonder Woman will open in the US on 23 June 2017, with a UK date yet to be confirmed.

Domhnall Gleeson stars in fantastic first trailer for Ex Machina: watch now

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 06:49:00 GMT

The first trailer has exploded online for Ex Machina, Alex Garland’s directorial debut, in which Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson find themselves embroiled in a rather unusual love triangle.

Gleeson plays a talented programmer, selected to work with Isaac on developing an extremely advanced, artificially intelligent robot in a remote research facility.

However, since said robot looks like Alicia Vikander, the situation soon grows complicated, with Gleeson starting to develop feelings for her while beginning to question Isaac’s motivations.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Having also penned the script, Garland looks to have conjured up a claustrophobic, subtly unnerving sci-fi, with Isaac turning in a particularly creepy performance as the robot’s inscrutable creator.

Directed by Garland and co-starring Corey Johnson and Chelsea Li, Ex Machina will open in the UK on 23 January 2015.

Seth Rogen joining Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 06:29:00 GMT

Having already secured Christian Bale for the title role, Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic is continuing to build its cast, with Variety reporting that Seth Rogen is in line to join the project.

According to the report, Rogen has bagged the role of Steve Wozniak, one of Jobs’ closest allies and co-founder of Apple who played a key role in the development of some of the company’s most ground-breaking technology.

Said technology will form the focal point of the film, with each of its three, thirty-minute acts set just before the launch of the Mac, the NeXT and the iPod.

Meanwhile, The Wrap claims that Jessica Chastain is also on Boyle’s hit-list, with the director keen to sign her up as soon as possible. No details as yet regarding who she might be playing…

Adapted from Walter Isaacson’s acclaimed biography and directed by Boyle, the film has yet to receive an official release date, with shooting expected to begin in early 2015.

Coen brothers' Hail, Caesar! gets a release date

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 09:10:00 GMT

Hail, Caesar!, the next project from the Coen brothers has received an official release date, with Universal scheduling the film to arrive in 2016.

The film will open in the US on 5 February 2016, and will follow the antics of a studio fixer in the golden age of 1950s Hollywood.

The story will focus upon a single day in the life of said fixer, as he attempts to keep his studio's stars on the straight and narrow, and out of the gossip pages.

George Clooney will head up a stunning ensemble cast that also includes the likes of Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.

Production on the film will kick off later this year, giving the brothers ample time to hit their 2016 deadline.

Joss Whedon talks global feel of Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 07:13:00 GMT

While it’s tempting to get entirely swept away by Marvel’s exciting Phase 3 plans, there is still the small matter of Avengers: Age Of Ultron to be dealt with first, with Joss Whedon explaining that the second film will have a more global feel to it…

“Up in the Italian Alps,” said Whedon, when asked where the film had shot. “We were in Seoul, Korea. We were in Johannesburg. We shot a little in Bangladesh. Then all over England.”

Quite the globetrotting production then, although as Whedon explains, there was a reason for expanding the geographical scope of the new film…

“This is a very global film,” says the director. “We wanted the world perspective on the Avengers. They’re being the Avengers and that’s a global thing and it doesn’t make everybody love them, so we wanted to see both sides of that.”

Could it be the reaction of the wider world to the Avengers that sets events down the path that leads to Civil War? We’ll have to wait until 24 April 2015 to find out…

New plot details emerge from Terminator: Genisys

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 06:58:00 GMT

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly features a major look at Terminator: Genisys and contains some intriguing tidbits as to what we can expect from the film’s plot…

It seems that despite telling a similar story to the original two films, Terminator: Genisys will make several key narrative changes, starting with the notion that Sarah Connor’s parents were both killed by a Terminator.

In their absence, the nine-year-old Sarah was brought up by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800, meaning that she has grown up to become “a highly trained antisocial recluse”.

“Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” says producer David Ellison. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”

Directed by Alan Taylor and co-starring Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney and Matt Smith, Terminator: Genisys will open in the UK on 3 July 2015.

Jennifer Lawrence stars in final trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1: watch now

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 06:44:00 GMT

The final trailer has arrived online for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, in which Katniss readies herself for all out war with the Capitol.

There will be no Games sequence this time around, but in its place there looks to be some fairly major conflict, as Katniss finds herself leading the rebellion against the villainous President Snow.

However, Snow isn’t about to go quietly, and as his own situation grows more precarious, he becomes more dangerous than ever before.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Looks like these final two films are going to fall squarely on the “epic” side of things, as Panem is torn apart by civil war and Snow’s troops attempt to quash the rebellion with extreme prejudice.

Directed by Francis Lawrence and co-starring Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Donald Sutherland, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will open in the UK on 21 November 2014.

Benedict Cumberbatch relishes the challenge in new clip from The Imitation Game: watch now

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 17:25:00 GMT

A new clip has arrived online from The Imitation Game, in which Benedict Cumberbatch faces down the immense challenge posed by the Enigma code.

Cumberbatch plays famed cryptologist Alan Turing in the new film, with this latest clip showing his briefing from Charles Dance's Commander Denniston.

Denniston is convinced the code is uncrackable, but as Turing confidently puts it, "let me try, and we'll know for sure…"

Take a look at the new clip, below…

Cumberbatch might be making headlines for his recent casting in Marvel's Doctor Strange, but in Turing, he may well have found the character that leads him to awards season glory. It's quite the performance…

Directed by Morten Tyldum and co-starring Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode and Mark Strong, The Imitation Game will open in the UK on 14 November 2014.

First clip arrives from Avengers: Age Of Ultron: watch now

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 09:30:00 GMT

As well as unleashing the awesome power of its Phase 3 schedule, Marvel has also found time to release a new clip from Avengers: Age Of Ultron, showing the Avengers letting their hair down.

The new clip shows that despite the more sombre tone of the recent trailer, there will still be plenty of joshing and jesting between Earth's mightiest heroes.

Looks like attempting to lift Thor's Hammer makes for quite the party game, with Mjolnir once again proving to be a most reliable comedy prop...

Take a look at the new clip, below…

Meanwhile, the major Avengers news is that a third film, Infinity War, will be split into two parts, to be released in 2018 and 2019. This, presumably, is when Thanos will really come into his own as the series' big bad.

With the two releases coming so hot on each others' heels, both films will presumably shoot back to back, although whether Joss Whedon will be taking the helm remains to be seen...

Marvel unveils mammoth Phase 3 slate

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 09:09:00 GMT

Marvel has reacted to DC's recent announcement of forthcoming films by unveiling a mammoth slate of Phase 3 projects, including release dates for Black Panther, Captain Marvel and more.

Phase 3 will get underway with the release of Captain America: Civil War on 6 May 2016, followed later that year by the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring Doctor Strange on 4 November 2016.

2017 will see a trio of Marvel projects hit our screens, starting with Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 on 5 May, Thor: Ragnarok on 28 July  and Black Panther on 3 November, with Chadwick Boseman cast as the lead in the latter (you can check out a first look at his costume, below….).

2018 will see debut movies for Captain Marvel (6 July) and Inhumans (2 November), both of which will be preceded by the first film of two-part saga, Avengers: Infinity War on 4 May.

The second part of the Avengers extravaganza will land on 3 May 2019, completing a quite staggering sequence of announcements from the studio. We hope DC enjoyed that buzz while it lasted...

Robert Downey Jr. promises Avengers: Age Of Ultron will shake up Marvel third-act formula

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 06:20:00 GMT

While Marvel has yet to serve up anything that could be described as a dud, a frequent criticism of recent outings has been that the third act has sometimes failed to live up to what has come before…

However, according to Robert Downey Jr., Avengers: Age Of Ultron is about to buck the trend, with an end sequence to blow its box office rivals out of the water…

"There was a Rubik’s Cube to how to make these things have an Act Three," says Downey to SlashFilm, "that you’re just going, 'I really hope you like Acts One and Two because now we’ve just gotta do all this stuff.'"

"To me, and I think it was the same thing in Iron Man 3, Act Three was the strongest act. I think that this is really gunning for that sort of thing. Because I love movies. I love these kinds of movies. I feel like I’m just a very tolerant kind of consumer with these things."

"But I think that there has to be a bit of a transcendence of formula. And so without giving too much away… when the first draft came in I thought, “Oh wow, it didn’t fall into that trap.” And I read the last page and I got chills, for a reason I definitely can’t explain. This is gonna be very cool."

With the end of Age Of Ultron likely to set up the Civil War storyline of Captain America 3, it's easy to believe Marvel has something different up its sleeve this time around. We'll find out for sure when the film opens in the UK on 24 April 2015.

Bob Odenkirk describes Better Call Saul as 85% drama, 15% comedy

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 05:00:00 GMT

Given that Saul Goodman was often the comic relief in Breaking Bad, particularly as the seasons grew progressively darker, one could be forgiven for assuming that Better Call Saul will be a little lighter in tone than its predecessor.

However, according to star Bob Odenkirk, the new show will be far more dramatic in content than expected, with comedy only accounting for a small part of its makeup.

"It’s total drama, man," said Odenkirk to THR, before slightly softening his stance. "It’s 85 percent drama, 15 percent comedy.”

And with the show set to run in hour-long episodes, Odenkirk is looking forward to getting his teeth into a character who largely existed on the fringes of Breaking Bad.

"That doesn’t happen so much with secondary characters because they don’t need to have that depth," explains Odenkirk. "One of the cool things about playing Saul now is that I get to have those moments. I’ve certainly gotten a chance to dig deep in Better Call Saul."

Better Call Saul
will debut in the US in February, with a UK air date to be confirmed.

Kevin Feige says the Avengers lineup will be different by the end of Age Of Ultron

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 17:38:00 GMT

Kevin Feige has been discussing Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and has revealed that the lineup of the super-team will look a little different by the time the curtain falls on that film.

"It’s like as it was in publishing," Feige told Buzzfeed, "when each of the characters would go on their own adventures and then occasionally team up for a big, 12-issue mega-event." 

"Then they would go back into their own comics, and be changed from whatever that event was. I envision the same thing occurring after this movie, because the [Avengers] roster is altered by the finale of this film."

Meanwhile, Chris Evans has been discussing what comes next for Captain America, who looks to be a pivotal character in the shifting sands of the new-look Marvel Universe…

"He’s still looking for a home," says Evans, "probably a metaphorical home. He’s always felt comfortable as a soldier. And he likes structure. He works well taking orders. But when that dynamic turned on him, he’s now left to depend upon his team, the Avengers." 

"There really is no one above them telling them what to do. They’re kind of having to operate independently. So there’s a lot of leaning on one another, but there really isn’t a kind of clear chain of command." 

"And I think Cap looks for that. I think he’s looking to understand where he belongs, not just as a soldier, as Captain America, but as Steve Rogers, as a person."

Directed by Joss Whedon and co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and James Spader, Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 24 April 2015.

Warner keen for Jesse Eisenberg to reprise Lex Luthor role in Suicide Squad

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 06:58:00 GMT

Warner is apparently planning to add Jesse Eisenberg to its Suicide Squad ensemble, with Deadline reporting that Lex Luthor will feature in the new film.

While Luthor has not been a traditional mainstay of that series, the report claims that Warner is keen to bring him into the fold, thus connecting the new property with one of its more established franchises.

Eisenberg could potentially become part of a superhero ensemble to rival The Avengers for star power, with Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy all thought to be in discussions with the studio.

It has also been rumoured that Cara Delavigne is in line to join the cast, with the model-turned-actress linked to the role of Harley Quinn, after posting a picture of the character on her Instagram feed.

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad is currently scheduled to open in US cinemas in 2016, with an exact release date yet to be confirmed.

Marvel reveals new synopsis for Agent Carter

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 06:42:00 GMT

Marvel has released a lengthy new synopsis for Agent Carter, the Hayley Atwell-starring spin-off from the Captain America series.

The new synopsis reveals a boat-load of new plot details, outlining the challengers facing Peggy Carter, as well as the alliances she forms with both Howard Stark and his butler, Jarvis…

It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad,” reads the official blurb.

Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field; putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America.”

When old acquaintance Howard Stark finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy – the only person he can trust – to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name.” 

He empowers his butler, Edwin, to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for releasing these weapons of mass destruction. But Jarvis, who is a creature of habit and sticks to a rigid daily routine, is going to have to make some major life changes if he’s going to be able to keep up with Peggy.”

If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse. And as she delves deeper into her investigation, she may find that those she works for are not who they seem, and she might even begin to question whether Stark is as innocent as he claims.”

Co-starring Dominic Cooper and James D’Arcy as Stark and Jarvis respectively, Agent Carter is expected to air in 2015, with a specific date yet to be confirmed.

Rumour: David S. Goyer planning Superman prequel series?

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 05:00:00 GMT

With superhero TV shows proving to be very much the flavour of the month, Warner could be about to further explore the Superman story, with a brand new prequel series set on the planet Krypton.

According to Bleeding Cool, Warner has hired Man Of Steel writer David S. Goyer to pen the series, allowing him to expand upon the society he introduced in that film’s first act.

Needless to say, this would a Superman series without Superman himself, but Man Of Steel’s Krypton-based sequences hinted at plenty of storytelling possibilities based around Jor-El and co.

has also proved that dropping a superhero from his own franchise needn’t always be a turn-off, with Warner likely encouraged by that show’s strong early ratings.

The report doesn’t supply any further details beyond the fact that the show is unofficially titled Krypton, but hopefully more details will emerge as Warner continues to develop its long-term DC plans…

Mark Rylance to star in Spielberg’s adaptation of The BFG

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 20:39:00 GMT

Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of The BFG has cast its titular giant, with stage actor Mark Rylance signing on to head up the forthcoming film.

According to Variety, the critically acclaimed star has agreed to play the BFG himself, although whether his performance will involve prosthetics or CGI remains to be seen.

The film will retell Roald Dahl’s classic story of a kindly giant, who teams up with a young girl in an attempt to thwart his less-cuddly brethren from devouring England’s children.

Spielberg and Rylance are already set to collaborate on the director’s as-yet-untitled Cold War project, with the two films scheduled to shoot back to back.

will open in the UK on 22 July 2016. Celebratory snozzcumbers all round!

Benedict Cumberbatch in talks to head up Doctor Strange

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 20:21:00 GMT

After weeks and months of rumours, it looks as though Marvel has finally found its Doctor Strange, with Deadline reporting that Benedict Cumberbatch is in talks with the studio over the role.

Having seen Joaquin Phoenix enter negotiations and then walk away from the deal, it would be premature to confirm anything just yet, but according to the report, discussions are at an advanced stage.

Cumberbatch has long been linked to Marvel’s wish-list for the project, but had initially seemed unlikely to be available, on account of his stage commitments to a London production of Hamlet.

However, it seems as though the studio has rejigged its schedule, with the proposed shooting dates no longer thought to be a stumbling block. Time to start getting excited…

Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange will open in the US on 8 July 2016, with a UK release date to be confirmed.

First poster lands for Fast & Furious 7

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 13:26:00 GMT

The first poster has arrived online for Fast & Furious 7, which is now going by the title of Furious 7 in the US.

A new Facebook banner shows off the film’s primary cast in all their glory, featuring the notable inclusion of the late Paul Walker.

He’s given third billing in the lineup, alongside a roster of familiar faces including Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez.

There’s no sign of franchise newcomer Jason Statham, so perhaps we can look forward to a solo poster promoting the latest villain of the piece… You can see the stylish new teaser poster underneath the Facebook banner, below...

Directed by James Wan and co-starring Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges and Michelle Rodriguez, Furious 7 will open in the UK on 3 April 2015.

The Hobbit will end with 45 minute battle scene

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 06:47:00 GMT

A few new details have emerged regarding series curtain-closer The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, with EW confirming that the film will conclude with an epic, 45-minute battle sequence.

The set-piece will bring the series to a close in spectacular fashion, as Sauron makes a play for Middle-earth by dispatching his forces to launch a concerted assault on our heroes.

However, if you are concerned that 45 minutes of sword-swinging might become a bit wearisome, Peter Jackson is quick to reassure that the sequence will be designed to avoid losing the audience…

“We have a rule that we’re not allowed to go more than two or three shots of anonymous people fighting without cutting back to our principal characters,” says Jackson. “Otherwise the audience just ends up with battle fatigue.”

Co-starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage, The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies will open in the UK on 12 December 2014.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller will write The LEGO Movie 2

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 06:33:00 GMT

While Phil Lord and Chris Miller directed The LEGO Movie to great success, both critically and financially, it had been thought that the duo would take something of a back seat on the forthcoming sequel, restricting their involvement to production duties.

However, according to Deadline, the pair will be more heavily involved than first anticipated, having signed an agreement to pen the script for The LEGO Movie 2.

That said, they will still be passing on the directorial reins, although with co-helmer Chris McKay now confirmed for the LEGO Batman spin-off, it remains to be seen whether he will still be directing The LEGO Movie 2 as had first been planned.

Whoever does end up filling the director’s chair will have plenty to live up to, with the first film having brought in a whopping $470 million worldwide, as well as scoring a raft of positive reviews.

The LEGO Movie 2 is expected to open in the UK at some point in 2018. An official release date has yet to be confirmed.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in new red-band trailer for Nightcrawler: watch now

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 05:00:00 GMT

Nightcrawler has dropped a brand new red-band trailer online, using some of the more “unconventional” review quotes the film has received to hilarious effect.

Soundtracked by Kendrick Lamar’s pounding Backseat Freestyle, the new trailer plays up the film’s outrageous sensibilities, as Jake Gyllenhaal’s wannabe reporter crosses every boundary that comes his way.

The overall effect is to create an air of manic black humour, as Gyllenhaal steps ever further down an increasingly dark path.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Ever since the first viral trailer dropped, showing off Gyllenhaal’s unnerving video-CV, Nightcrawler’s PR push has done a nice job of communicating the film’s mischievous tone. Fucking amazeballs, indeed…

Directed by Dan Gilroy and co-starring Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed and Bill Paxton, Nightcrawler will open in the UK on 31 October 2014.
