I’m not your typical movie crier. Unlike most of my friends, I don’t tend to cry at big romantic gestures or when anyone in a Nicholas Sparks movie dies. But there is one thing that will always get me, as well as most of the other people in the theater: killing an animal. I just can’t. So this week, I quite literally have a pet peeve to discuss with Hollywood.
First things first, there’s a big difference between an animal film in which one dies and a film that includes an animal just to kill it. »

The making of Fast & Furious 7 was happening on an accelerated pace to meet next summer’s July 11 release date, but now the movie has come to a complete stop.
The unexpected and tragic car-crash death of Paul Walker has led Universal Pictures to put a hold on the movie in mid-production. Donna Langley, chairman of universal Pictures, told EW this week, “We have half a movie shot and we are working through it.”
The studio has now decided to call a halt.
“Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and »

Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »

Universal Pictures has a big decision to make this week about the future of the "Fast & Furious" franchise.And with "Fast & Furious 7" already well into production before star Paul Walker's unfortunate death over the weekend, it's not an easy decision to make.According to TMZ, the cast was initially going to go back to work after a holiday break this week, but that probably won't be happening anytime soon.The way we see it, Universal has four options.1.) Find a Way to Write Him Out Midway Through Part 7There's no way they could kill his character off midway through the movie, but they could find a way to write him out. Maybe put Brian O'Conner and Mia (Jordana Brewster) in witness protection with their child, while Dom (Vin Diesel) and the rest of the crew take on the new threat. This way, the filmmakers could use what they already have and honor Paul's work, »

‘Catching Fire’ box office: To surpass Iron Man 3 in North America? (photo: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Thanksgiving was celebrated this past week in the United States. Although the American economy remains in a seemingly never-ending rut, Lionsgate has much to be thankful for, financially speaking: on the weekend of November 29-December 1, 2013, Francis Lawrence’s $110-130 million-budgeted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, added another $74.5 million from 4,163 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even if Lionsgate’s estimates are (once again) off by a couple of percentage points, that’s a remarkable hold for a sequel. In fact, Catching Fire was down only 53% compared to its first weekend, which included $25+ million from Thursday night and Friday midnight screenings. And let’s not forget that the Hunger Games sequel blew off »

Two aged American heroes saunter on to small screens this week. No surprise that the one fighting fit is Clark Kent himself, back in moneyed, near-machine-like condition in Zack Snyder's sturdy, appropriately metallic and largely humourless Superman update Man of Steel (Warner, 12). Less expected is that it's dustily unfashionable lawman The Lone Ranger (Disney, 12) who gets far the more thrilling film. Unjustly maligned by critics who smelled blood as inevitable commercial failure loomed, it re-emerges on DVD looking to harvest as cultish a following as any Disney mega-production can hope for.
Man of Steel may boast the airbrushed visual sheen and positively homoerotic muscularity that is Snyder's directorial signature, but it's otherwise focus-grouped to the nth degree: the dominant creative presence is not Snyder but producer Christopher Nolan, whose recent Batman trilogy set the tone of stern, »

Earlier this week, MailOnline reported that aged rocker Keith Richards will return as Captain Teague in The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. This will be the fifth installment of the Disney franchise. There have been rumors floating around the net for a while about Richards’ involvement. Here is what Mo's source had to say:
"After months of talks, Keith has signed on to rejoin Johnny Depp in this fifth Pirates film… Cameras are scheduled to start rolling in October."
In the same article, we find out that Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz will possibly be joining the cast as the villain Captain Brand:
"Jack and his team are in search of The Trident, which Keith's Teague holds valuable information to.
"The villain this time is Captain Brand, a ghost that wants the Trident so he can get his revenge on Jack.
"Brand believes Jack turned his brother Eric into a pirate, »

The Daily Mail has learned that Keith Richards is set to reprise his role as Captain Teague, who is Jack Sparrow's father, in the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales." The site also revealed that the villain in the movie will be Captain Brand, a ghost who's after something called The Trident, which will be used to get revenge on Jack (Johnny Depp). Apparently Brand feels that Jack is responsible for turning his brother into a pirate. According to Bleeding Cool, Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) is in talks to play Brand. Another character involved with the movie is the daughter of Captain Barbosa (Geoffrey Rush). Her name is Carina Smyth and it's rumored that she's a witch, but is really just a skilled astronomer. She is also Jack's love interest. Rebecca Hall is considered for the role. »
News of the fifth instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has been rare since confirmation of its subtitle Dead Men Tell No Tales.
So far, only Johnny Depp has been confirmed to return for another outing as Captain Jack Sparrow, however it's been reported that Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained) is currently being courted to play the lead villain while Keith Richards is rumoured to be back as Jack Sparrow's father Teague.
This is still firmly in the rumour stage at present but it would be intriguing to see Waltz playing such a major role in one of the biggest franchises ever. If he is cast, it's said he would play Captain Brand, a ghost who wants the Trident so he can get his revenge on Jack for turning his brother into a pirate.

In television, things don’t always turn out the way you expect. When you dream up a series, you have no way of knowing if certain characters will really take off with the audience, or crash like a lead balloon. Sometimes, you’ll come up with a minor character, maybe even someone who was only supposed to be a one-off, and they’ll really strike a chord with viewers. They want to see more and more of this person. And so, your entire programme is changed.
Over time, your original leads are sharing the spotlight with this presumptuous upstart. It might almost be irritating, that this character threw aside all of your carefully crafted plans. At least, it would be if that character wasn’t pretty much the main reason that new viewers continue tuning in week after week. You can never predict what will resonate with audiences, so the »

A slew of interesting new details have come to surface for the impending sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which has Johnny Depp signed to return as Captain Jack Sparrow for a fifth time.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Keith Richards will return as the pirate Captain Teague, who also happens to be Jack's biological father. The pair will team up to battle Captain Brand in a search for a mythical trident.
In this new story, Teague holds valuable information in the search of a mythical trident. »
Though would-be series starter The Lone Ranger flopped at the box office this past summer, Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer will always have Pirates of the Caribbean to fall back on. The swashbuckling franchise currently holds the title of sixth highest-grossing series of all time, and 2011′s On Stranger Tides scored over $1 billion without the help of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Disney and Bruckheimer are working fast to pull together a fifth installment.
Currently subtitled Dead Men Tell No Tales, the film has already been slated for the summer of 2016. Now, we have news from The Daily Mail that two well-respected actors are considering major roles in the sequel. Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) and BAFTA nominee Rebecca Hall (The Awakening) have both been approached to play key characters in Dead Men Tell No Tales, which will find »

According to a survey by Chillisauce.co.uk of 8000 people, 25 percent of women voted for Handlebar.
Being sported by Mo legends such as actor Johnny Depp and Poirot, it's finely groomed and turns up at the end, the Daily Star reported.

It’s true that Johnny Depp will be reprising his role, again, for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and now we’ve got a little rumour that Dr King Schultz is possibly set to take on the lead villain, yes, Mr Christoph Waltz!
Disregarding the fact that no-one knows how we’ve got to five of these films, beyond Captain Jack Sparrow’s endless japery, the first three were lot of fun and they’re not stopping yet. The new one is written by Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can but also Rush Hour 3) and directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (both Kon-tiki). There appears to be more rumours around this film than most and for some reason they’re also intent on hiding any spoilers plot-wise, which is impressive if they manage it.
Waltz is reportedly interested by the role as Captain Brand, »
