The 'Ex Machina' Trailer Proves It's 2015's Coolest Sci-Fi Movie (Video)

7 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're a fan of the sci-fi genre, then 2014 has been something of a blessing. There has been a glut of top shelf sci-fi movies released this year, from the Tom Cruise intergalactic war movie "Edge of Tomorrow," to the thoughtful eeriness of "Under the Skin," to the creepy body-snatching of "Honeymoon," to the wonderful socio-political commentary of "Snowpiercer" to the balls-out fun of "Guardians of the Galaxy." All of these movies are magic. And they call came out this year. Thankfully, it looks like this winning streak is going to continue into 2015, with the first trailer for Alex Garland's "Ex Machina" already blowing our minds.

Garland, if you're unfamiliar with his work, was once a cerebral novelist whose cult book "The Beach" was adapted by Danny Boyle and Leonardo DiCaprio. That chance encounter with Boyle, though, started a second wind to his career, with Garland writing two terrific »

Nightcrawler review: A black-hearted thriller

Jake Gyllenhaal returns to the big screen this week in the brilliant Nightcrawler, an La-set thriller about a cameraman who films grisly crime scenes and traffic accidents to make a fast buck from sensationalist TV news stations.

Nightcrawler's Lou Bloom is the latest in a long line of movie characters you love to hate, antiheroes infused with a near-sociopathic drive to succeed and make their mark. Here are 5 movies you need to see to get yourself ready for Nightcrawler's plummet into the moral abyss.

Robert De Niro in The King of Comedy (1983)

Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro's jet-black comedy is one of the pair's overlooked collaborations, but in our humble opinion it's one of their best. Exploring similar territory to the duo's masterpiece Taxi Driver, this film casts De Niro as Rupert Pupkin, a terrible stand-up comic with an intense desire to become famous. »

‘Mr. Turner’ Could Lead Timothy Spall to An Oscar Nomination

28 October 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Timothy Spall and director Mike Leigh have worked together on five different films, including Secrets & Lies (1996), which resulted in Leigh’s first Oscar nomination, and Topsy-Turvy (1999). Leigh has received seven Oscar nominations since 1997, but Spall has never received recognition from the Academy. That could change this year with Leigh’s Mr. Turner, which features Spall as the British landscape painter J.M.W. Turner. The film has been praised and Spall’s portrayal of the obsessive painter garnered him the best actor award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, which makes him the latest character actor to get a boost from a Leigh film.

Spall’s Mr. Turner co-star, Lesley Manville, has worked with Leigh for multiple films and received a BAFTA nomination for Another Year (2010). Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Brenda Blethyn, Spall’s co-stars in Secrets & Lies, both received Oscar nominations for their roles in the film. »

10 Actors Who Could Replace The Avengers

27 October 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Walt Disney Pictures

A long time ago, in a movie galaxy far, far away, Tom Cruise was actively involved in trying to get a relatively unknown comic book character called Iron Man off the animation panels and into cinemas.

Nowadays, it’s hard to picture anyone but Robert Downey Jr as Ol’ Shellhead, and his definitive portrayal has made it almost impossible for anyone to step into Tony Stark’s shoes without trembling. Nevertheless, at some point, replace him they must.

The recent Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer and Captain America 3 rumours suggest that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are set for some major changes, and as Marvel’s principal actors’ ages and contracts become more pertinent issues it surely won’t be long before the casting couch gets a dusting off.

Marvel are famously tough negotiators, so while Robert Downey Jr. was operating from a position of envious strength »

27 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With her new novel, she’s brought it forward to the modern world and it follows this official synopsis:

Christian Bale Confirmed In Steve Jobs Biopic

25 October 2014 6:09 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Christian Bale will definitely be playing late Apple CEO, Steve Jobs in Sony’s upcoming biopic.

Screenwriter, Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network) revealed that Bale is first choice for the role.

Sorkin is a master of rapid dialogue. He cut his teeth in theatre, penning the stage play A Few Good Men, which he later adapted into the smash movie of the same name, starring Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise and Demi Moore.

The project should be in safe hands with Sorkin. His adaptation of Mark Zuckerberg’s story (from the book by Ben Mezrich) won a plethora of awards and nominations, as well as critical praise. This time, he’s working with Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography about Jobs.

8 amazing rock 'n' roll transformations: From Gary Oldman to Cate Blanchett

24 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic All By My Side opens in cinemas today (October 24).

Andre '3000' Benjamin plays the iconic musician in the movie, which depicts Jimi's humble beginnings to becoming possibly the world's greatest guitarist.

This has inspired us to compile our own list of the greatest portrayals of musicians in rock 'n' roll biopics, often going above and beyond mere physical transformation:

1. Andy Serkis as Ian Dury

Andy Serkis was BAFTA nominated for his critically-acclaimed role - played to perfection - as charismatic '70s punk rock singer and songwriter Ian Dury in Mat Whitecross's 2010 biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

To portray Dury's physical condition - he contracted polio as a child - Serkis lost two stone and built up the muscle mass on the right-hand side of his body so the other side was weaker.

He added: "I had a body wax. It's the most »

Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer – Flickering Myth Reaction

The Flickering Myth team react to the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron

Well, what a bombshell eh? It was announced on Wednesday that the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron would be released next Tuesday during Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but less than 24 hours later it leaked online (by Hydra apparently). Pressured by every website under the sun posting the leaked footage, Marvel released the full trailer themselves. Complete with Tardis cameo…

So, we watched it. A few times. But what did we think?…

Ben Rayner: My reaction is simply the puddle of drool I am currently sitting in!

Villordsutch: The actual words I used after the the trailer would make me seem less articulate than I actually am. I can say however that I was honestly taken aback a little bit with what they’ve delivered in this trailer. After only watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier »

Warner Bros. Finds Writer For Biblical Epic Methuselah

22 October 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A trend that’s taking over Hollywood as of late is the rise of the biblical epic. In the last year alone, we’ve seen Darren Aronofsky’s take on the infamous arc builder in Noah, and soon Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings will land in theatres. Now, Warner Bros. are keen to get in on the sandal action, as the studio is making headway on their property Methuselah.

Together with producer David Heyman, who brought us the first and last Harry Potter instalments and Gravity, their plan is to bring the Bible character to the big screen for his own pic. The story of Methuselah is one that’s tantamount to a superhero origin tale, as the story is set to follow “a man who ages slowly and has used his time to develop an incredible set of survival skills.”

If the name sounds familiar, that’s »

David Heyman’s ‘Methuselah’ Finds Writer (Exclusive)

22 October 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With biblical characters in high demand, Warner Bros. and producer David Heyman are revving up the gears on a property that fits into that realm.

Zach Dean, scribe of the blacklist script “Beast,” has been tapped to pen the script to “Methuselah.”

Based on the character from the Bible, the story follows a man who ages slowly and has used his time to develop an incredible set of survival skills.

Heyman will produce through his Heyday pictures. Jeff Clifford and John Fischer will oversee for Heyday with Drew Crevello and Jon Gonda overseeing for the studio.

Warners has wanted to get this off the ground for sometime with actors like Will Smith and Tom Cruise circling at one point or another. Given all the recent interest around characters from the Bible like Paramount’s “Noah” and the upcoming “Exodus: Gods and Kings” its no surprise WB sees this as something »

Review: Edge of Tomorrow

22 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The year is 2025, and once again the human race finds itself in yet another clichéd fight for survival. However, on this occasion it is the Alien's cognitive ability that threatens us most, rather than their over-powered weaponry or unforgiving size.

Combat evolved, the humans efforts are seemingly futile, with victories fewer and far between. However, highly strung propaganda and vivacious speeches from leading political figures ensure a constant recruitment drive, and none are more inspiring than Major General Cage (Tom Cruise) - a charismatic personality whose emphatic belief in the ultimate victory is somewhat infectious. It's as if Cruise is playing Cruise, because that same charismatic personality is what we've come to love and respect in regards to the veteran actor.

However, when ‘Cage’ is told he will be heading the front-line into direct combat in Paris, France, the mood changes. Until then his weapon had been words and his combat inspirational… »
