Akiva Goldman signs on to drive future 'Transformers' movies writer's room

23 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some days you're a step ahead, some days you're a step behind. I've been chasing this Akiva Goldsman/"Transformers" story for a few weeks, but couldn't second-source it. Now Deadline's reporting that the story is in fact happening. One of the reasons I was extra-careful was because it is the sort of story that sounds like someone making a joke about the way the industry works right now. "Akiva Goldsman has been hired to supervise the development of three back-to-back 'Transformers' sequels for Michael Bay" is what I heard first, and my response was, "Shut up and stop making horrible jokes." The thing is, this is the near-future of how they'll be handling these giant franchise films. You want to know the real truth of why the Russos are rapidly becoming Marvel's favorite filmmakers? Because they are trained to work in the TV model already, which is what blockbuster filmmaking is becoming. »

'Transformers' Multi-Part Sequel & Spinoff Movies Planned

1 hour ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures is in negotiations with writer-director-producer Akiva Goldsman to help develop new Transformers movies alongside franchise director Michael Bay. Deadline reports that Paramount's approach is similar to what director James Cameron did with his Avatar sequels, forming a "writers room" of sorts that will come up with ideas to develop a new multi-part sequel and spinoff movies. Akiva Goldsman isn't expected to write any of these movies himself, but he will find new writers to craft the scripts based on his ideas for the franchise.

The site also reports that Michael Bay would like to have Transformers 5 ready to start production once he wraps on his Benghazi thriller 13 Hours. It has long been believed that last year's Transformers: Age of Extinction, which was the only movie last year to cross $1 billion worldwide, was the last Transformers he planned on directing, but it seems he'll be on board to helm Transformers 5 as well. »

2 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Were you a little bit disappointed by the first Terminator Genisys trailer? If so, then Jk Simmons is here to turn your frown upside down, because he has stolen the first UK television spot for the upcoming blockbuster. Well, it also helps that there is tons of new action scenes in the clip, too. You check out the latest footage for Terminator Genisys below. It.s a start. The plethora of winks and nods to the James Cameron.s Terminator films in the first Genisys trailers hinted that it would make the same mistakes as Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines and Terminator Salvation. And while I.m not completely satisfied that won.t still be the case, at least we were able to get a deeper sense of the mood and characters with this new minute-long Genisys spot.  It certainly makes it easier to do that when you unleash »

Interview: Wim Wenders Talks ‘The Salt Of The Earth, The Possible Death Of 3D, Films Coming To Criterion & More

6 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

German filmmaker Wim Wenders has really done it all. From narrative to documentaries, including 3D arthouse dramas (the upcoming “Every Thing Will Be Fine”), 3D documentaries (“Pina”), music videos (U2, Talking Heads), live concert films, and almost every kind of movie imaginable in between — Wenders’ work has been restlessly eclectic. The filmmaker has been an early adopter of new technology throughout his career, shooting on video in the mid ‘90s (“Until the End of the World”), and his embrace of 3D technology began even earlier than is suggested on paper (he began shooting “Pina” even before James Cameron’s “Avatar” was released in theaters). He’s also received a ton of accolades over the years, winning the Palme d’Or in 1984 at Cannes (“Paris, Texas”), Best Director at Cannes in 1987 (“Wings Of Desire”) and he’s been nominated for three Academy Awards for the documentaries “Buena Vista Social Club,” the »

Can Espn Help Academy Find the Next Oscar Producer?

20 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As Academy executives hunt for new Oscar producers after the departure of Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, they should think less about Steven Spielberg and James Cameron, and more about Espn president John Skipper.

Whenever the job opens up for an Academy Awards producer, Oscar fans point out that this is the film industry’s biggest event and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences should corral a big name, since it has access to the greatest filmmakers in the world.

But even though the awards are a celebration of film, the Oscarcast is a television event. And producing live TV requires a very specific skill set, which is different from handling film, so Acad honchos should think outside the box and consider men and women who have produced live television: sports events, newscasts, talkshows and TV concerts.

Skipper, as president of Espn, has insights into multiple producers of sports events, »

"Terminator Genisys" Motion Poster, Plot Points

25 March 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Motion posters are often fairly dull affairs. Not this one, the new 'living one-sheet' for "Terminator Genisys" will literally shoot you in the face as it shows an aged Arnold Schwarzenegger getting his skinned flamed off and turning his rifle's attention towards you. Yes you, right there, reading this.

The poster comes as numerous set visit reports have hit the Net in the past few hours that clear up some details about the film's plot and what we might expect. Naturally this means some Spoilers Ahead so you've been warned.

As indicated this is the first film of a new and completely standalone trilogy. The producers have broken down the story for the three films prior to production, which allows for foreshadowing and details that are only possible in a longer story unfolding over a trilogy.

Like the Abrams "Trek" reboot, this follows a divergent timeline that goes off in a very different direction, »

Emilia Clarke Talks Terminator Genisys; Plus Pics From Her THR Photoshoot

25 March 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Thanks to her breakout role as Daenerys Targaryen in HBO's Game Of Thrones, British actress Emilia Clarke has a very promising big-screen career ahead of her. Though she has appeared in a few movies already (including Shackled and Dom Hemingway), her biggest role to date is undoubtedly that of Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator: Genisys. In the following video interview, Clarke fills us in on how she's adapting to the Hollywood limelight, and also discusses this new incarnation of the "mother of the future", who has been played twice already by Linda Hamilton in the original James Cameron films, and by Clarke's Thrones cast-mate Lena Headey in the Sarah Connor Chronicles TV series. The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human »

Jennifer Lawrence announces 'Apocalypse' is her last 'X-Men' movie

23 March 2015 2:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jennifer Lawrence has stated that "X-Men: Apocalypse," which comes out May 27, 2016, will mark her last outing as Mystique, the comely blue mutant of the saga.  There's no telling who will play Mystique going forward, but the title "Apocalypse" makes you wonder just how many X-Men will survive the movie anyway. Lawrence has a bunch of other high-profile projects coming up, including "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II," "Joy," a David O. Russell-directed biopic of Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano, and "The Dive," a James Cameron-directed biopic of Audrey Mestre, who died attempting to break her own single-breath diving record. Maybe all that blue makeup seems like too much trouble when you can just make more Oscar season movies with Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro.  Interestingly, all of the "X-Men: First Class" actors are contractually finished after "Apocalypse," including Lawrence's boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. It's time for renegotiations, »

New Terminator: Genisys Images Include First Look At J.K. Simmons’ Character

23 March 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

This summer is bursting with huge blockbuster releases. From Avengers: Age Of Ultron to Furious 7, they’re all vying to snag your hard-earned cash in exchange for admittance into an action-packed two hours of solid popcorn entertainment. Possibly the longest-running franchise out of them all is back in the shape of Terminator: Genisys. Thirty-one years after James Cameron’s original Terminator arrived on the scene as a dirty, low-budget exploitation actioner, Skydance Productions is ushering a new trilogy into multiplexes.

That first chapter arrives this June with Alan Taylor’s Genisys. A reboot prequel that resets the original timeline of Cameron’s movies, it will presumably (hopefully!) alter the events of the lacklustre two that followed: Rise Of The Machines and Salvation.

As part of the pre-release marketing magic, a slew of new images have arrived on the web from Empire’s huge Terminator »

Neill Blomkamp Says His 'Alien' Movie Had To Be Tweaked To Avoid Overlap With 'Prometheus 2'

23 March 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A pretty easy way for Neill Blomkamp to get people to stop talking about how bad "Chappie" was (for the record, I'm one of the few who really liked it, flawed as it may be), is to keep talking about his new "Alien" movie. While in typical fashion he's mostly been teasing the movie rather than dropping any concrete details, in a recent chat with Empire, Blomkamp shared a couple more hints about where his movie fits into the "Alien" movie universe, and his thoughts on everything after James Cameron's "Aliens."  “I changed the one thing [Ridley Scott] felt was bumping [the] 'Prometheus' [sequel] a little bit,” Blomkamp said. And oh yeah, there is an official title it would seem, but you're not going to hear it for a while because “’s kinda quite bold, but it gives away too much if I say the title.” So speculate away and remember, Blomkamp »

Neill Blomkamp Says Alien 5 Won't Interfere With Prometheus Franchise

23 March 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

It has already been confirmed that in addition to the "Prometheus" franchise, 20th Century Fox has greenlit a new "Alien" installment, which will be directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie). Blomkamp previously said that the new movie will take place after James Cameron's "Aliens." And in a new interview with Empire magazine, he revealed that it won't get in the way of what Ridley Scott is doing with "Prometheus." "I changed the one thing [Ridley Scott] felt was bumping 'Prometheus' a little bit," confirmed Blomkamp. The director also said that he already came up with a title for the new movie, but isn't ready to reveal it yet. "It's kinda quite bold, but it gives away too much if I say the title," he teased. And regarding the story... Blomkamp mentioned: "Where it went after 'Aliens' to me, as a fan, was wrong." The new film »

Neill Blomkamp has had to change his Alien 5 story due to Prometheus 2

23 March 2015 1:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From what we’ve heard so far about Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5, it’s going to take place after Aliens, but will not undo the work of Alien3 or Alien: Resurrection. According to Sigourney Weaver, she was convinced to do the movie while he told her the story he had planned out during the production of Chappie.

Well, it looks like that story may now have changed.

During an interview with Empire Magazine here in the UK, Blomkamp revealed that discussions between himself, 20th Century Fox and Ridley Scott have made it clear that an element of his story needed to change as it would affect the plot of Scott’s own Prometheus 2.

“I changed the one thing [Ridley Scott] felt was bumping Prometheus a little bit,” Blomkamp said, adding that he has a title – but it would be a major spoiler to reveal it, “it’s kinda quite bold, but »

'Terminator Genisys' Has a Different Take on Kyle Reese

19 March 2015 7:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Terminator Genisys is shaping up to be one of this summer's biggest blockbusters, with Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the Terminator franchise as his iconic T-800 cyborg, although much has changed in this version. Much like the original Terminator, military leader John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to the year 1984 to protect his mother Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), although nothing is quite what he expects. Sarah has actually been raised by an "aging" T-800 cyborg known as The Guardian for several years, as Kyle finds himself with a new mission, to reset the future. Jai Courtney has recently been doing press for The Divergent Series: Insurgent, in theaters tomorrow, and during an interview with Hero Complex, the actor revealed he didn't pay any attention to Michael Biehn's original portrayal of Kyle Reese in The Terminator, because this character has changed quite a bit.

"To be honest ... I don't pay any attention, »

'Hicks' Returning For More "Alien"

19 March 2015 7:29 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to actor Michael Biehn, he will reprise his role of  battle-scarred 'Corporal Dwayne Hicks' for director Neill Blomkamp's new "Alien" movie, prepping for a July 2015 start, picking up after the events of James Cameron's "Aliens":

"It's official, " said Biehn. "I will be reprising my role as 'Cpl Dwayne Hicks'. With the go-ahead, Hicks will return with 'Ripley' in mid 2017. Perhaps Hicks and Ripley will eventually get to second base in this one..."

Corporal Dwayne Hicks was a member of the military branch 'Uscm' ('United States Colonial Marines') that was deployed aboard the 'Sulaco' to investigate the sudden loss of contact with the colonists.

Hicks and the rest of his squad were under the command of 'Lieutenant Gorman', with two civilian advisors including 'Weyland-Yutani' rep 'Carter J. Burke' and 'Lt. Ellen Ripley'.

Dwayne Hicks was one of only a few survivors who made it off 'Acheron' alive. »

Take Two: 'FernGully' remains a delightful time capsule every 90s kid should revisit

19 March 2015 7:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are some movies from childhood that you watch over and over again. Then there are those films you see once and put away into the nostalgic recesses of your mind. Over time, those movies are stripped down and coalesce into a rose-colored memory. For me “FernGully” falls into the later category. If anyone asked, I’d declare my undying love for that animated film. Yet if pressed, I could barely sketch out the plot. Here’s what I do remember. I saw “FernGully” in theaters with my friends and it was the most romantic movie our nine-year-old eyes had ever seen. To my young self, “Fern Gully” was less a story about the dangers of pollution than a modern day “Romeo and Juliet” between a fairy and a human, only without the double suicide. Like any good love story, it involved a headstrong teenage daughter. In this case, the »

Alien 5 won't tread on toes of Prometheus 2

19 March 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Neill Blomkamp's new Alien film won't be called Alien 5 - and it's been changed a little to avoid "bumping" Prometheus 2...

This story implies a spoiler for Alien 3.

Neill Blomkamp's proposed sequel to Alien has thrown up a degree of confusion over the past month or so. First of all, it was said that it was going to effectively sideline Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up after James Cameron's Aliens. Then, Blomkamp himself distanced himself ever so slightly from those comments, instead insisting that due respect would be paid to the third and fourth Alien films.

Well, a little bit more information has come to light in the new issue of Empire magazine.

In it, Blomkamp confirms that original Alien director Ridley Scott will be producing the movie, and that it won't, in the words of the magazine, 'tread on the toes of Prometheus 2'. »
