TheWrap’s Film Critics Pick 10 Worst Movies of 2014

23 December 2014 5:29 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

For every year that is packed with awards season fodder and memorable movies that will go down in history, there is an equal number of films we wish we could erase from our memories.

The Worst of 2014 includes both people who should know better and repeat offenders, artists with a vision and hucksters out for a quick buck.

Here’s hoping the responsible parties resolve to do better in 2015.

How much of Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: Days of Future Past script made it into the movie?

23 December 2014 12:39 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn was originally set to return to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past but eventually bowed out in favour of directing another project of his, Kingsman: The Secret Service. Vaughn had written the original screenplay alongside Simon Kinberg, but it was unclear how much of his story made it onto the big screen when Bryan Singer replaced him as director. Now, in an interview with Collider, Vaughn has spoken about the movie, and how much of his original vision was retained by Singer in the final film:

“I’d say 90%.  I mean, we worked on the script [Simon] Kinsberg and I.  It was a really tough decision for me, because I pulled out just because I’d finished the Kingsman: The Secret Service script at the same time and I was like ‘My god if I don’t make a fun spy movie right now, somebody »

Channing Tatum Wanted to Play Venom, Plus Sony's Sinister Six Wishlist

23 December 2014 7:28 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We have some additional news to share with you about Sony Pictures' plans for a Spider-Man universe. There’s some really interesting stuff here, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the Marvel deal. This is intel on casting for several villains for the Sinister Six and Venom films that are currently in development at the studio.

The following details come from Cbm, who have come across some additional emails that they received from a source. According to them, Sinister Six was moving along nicely before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released. After that and all of the fan hate that came along with it, Sony was looking to switch things up with the possibility of including Spider-Man, Venom, and Carnage in the spin-off. 

Sinister Six has most likely gone through a ton of changes and drafts since then. There’s no word on whether the movie is »

My Ten Most Anticipated Films of 2015

22 December 2014 8:05 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

No time for foreplay. Here we go:   10. Avengers: Age of Ultron (directed by Joss Whedon) Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johannson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, James Spader Upon each rewatch, The Avengers becomes a little less enjoyable for me. But I have hopes that Joss Whedon’s follow-up to that 2012 monster hit will be a little bit more thematically interesting now that introductions have been made. Spader is going to make a boss out of Ultron. 9. Kingsman: The Secret Service (directed by Matthew Vaughn) Cast: Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine, Mark Hamill, Mark Strong, Samuel L. Jackson   Harry Hart (Firth) tries to bring Eggsy Unwin (Egerton) into an ultra-secret spy program while a madman (Jackson) is ready for mayhem. This looks like the most wacked out spy movie in a long time and I always enjoy some sharp English wit. »

A List Of Possible Actors for 'Sinister Six' Is Revealed

22 December 2014 9:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Sony continues to be the front headline of every news web since the brutal hack that revealed thousands of private e-mails and information. Many of these have been about Spider-man and the future of the franchise, one that seems bleak after the disaster that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was. Shortly after that film was released, Sony announced plans for a Sinister Six movie directed by Drew Goddard and in a new set of leaked e-mails, Comic Book Movie has revealed a “wishlist” of possible actors to take on the roles.

The article reveals that Pascal and other Sony executives have discussed possible candidates for the film including Channing Tatum as Venom (something that might not happen since he is now set to play Gambit in the upcoming X-Men film, Apocalypse), Emily Blunt as Scorpia, Sean Penn as Doctor Octopus and Colin Firth as The Vulture. However, bear in mind that »

Channing Tatum Wants To Play Venom, Sinister Six Wishlist Revealed

22 December 2014 8:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the fate of Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man franchise is very much up in the air right now, we do know that at one point, the studio was ready to move forward with both a Sinister Six and Venom spinoff. It’s unclear if they still plan to do so, what with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being a bit of a bomb for them, but the projects are likely still being considered.

So far, no official casting has been confirmed, but the studio obviously has a wishlist of who they’d like to see bring these comic book characters to life. Now, thanks to some leaked Sony emails, we know who they have their eye on.

Drew Goddard, who is set to be behind the camera for Sinister Six, wanted Tom Hardy for Sandman and Emily Blunt for Scorpia. Meanwhile, studio head Amy Pascal liked Emilia Clarke and Elizabeth Olsen for Scorpia, »

Five Fun Facts About "Love Actually"

22 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The holidays are finally upon us, and in celebration we're posting five fun facts about our favorite festive flicks!Today's featured film is "Love Actually" (2003).1. "Love Actually" was Andrew Lincoln's (Mark) first big budget movie. You probably recognize him as Rick Grimes from "The Walking Dead" (yep, he's British ... and so is The Governor!).2. Keira Knightley -- who played teen bride Juliet -- was just 18 when the film was released. The legal age for marrying in the U.K. is 16.3. The footage of people reuniting at the beginning and the end of the film is real. A film crew shot visitors at Heathrow Airport for a week and asked them to use the footage for the film. 4. The lake that maid Lúcia Moniz (Aurelia) and writer Colin Firth (Jamie) swim in was actually only 18" deep. The actors has to kneel down and pretend they were in deeper water.5. Olivia Olson »

Sony Wanted Tom Hardy as Sandman and Sean Penn as Doctor Octopus in Sinister Six

22 December 2014 2:52 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

According to leaked Sony Pictures emails from May, there were a lot of talks about the studio's "Sinister Six" film, which will be directed by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and focus on Spider-Man villains. Goddard mentioned that he wanted Tom Hardy to play Sandman, but there were also talks of making the villain the movie's comic relief, which is why actors like Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, Chris O'Dowd, Michael Pena, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, and Sharlto Copley were also on the list. Goddard wanted Emily Blunt as Scorpia, but Sony Pictures chairman Amy Pascal suggested Emilia Clarke and Rose Byrne. Sean Penn and Woody Harrelson were wanted for Doctor Octopus (the team's leader), while Colin Firth for The Vulture and Channing Tatum for Venom. Other actors like Denzel Washington, George Clooney and Daniel Craig were all considered for various roles. »

Paterson Joseph interview: Good Omens, Doctor Who, Neil Gaiman

19 December 2014 8:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paterson Joseph chats to us about Good Omens, Peep Show, being cut from Paddington, and why he'd "never say never" to playing the Doctor...

Where do you begin with Paterson Joseph? Be it on stage or the small screen, he’s popped up everywhere from Shakespeare to Survivors, from Casualty to Green Wing. To some, he’s the suave, sharply dressed and, latterly, lapsed alcoholic Alan Johnson in Peep Show. But to others, this writer included, he’ll always be the mysterious, flamboyant swashbuckler, the Marquis de Carabas, from Neil Gaiman’s rich sub-London fantasy Neverwhere.

Now, he’s appearing on BBC Radio 4 in a festive double bill of prestige productions. First, he’s giving voice to fast-food mogul and horseman of the apocalypse Famine in Good Omens, adapted from the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Then, on New Year’s Day, he’s Pierre, the passionate protagonist »

Watch: New Trailer And Six Featurettes For 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'

19 December 2014 6:04 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

An evil, scheming mastermind is about unfold a nefarious plot that puts the whole world at peril, and the only person that can stop it is a sharply dressed man belonging to a British spy agency. Sound familiar? Well, while that may also be the plot of the upcoming Bond flick "Spectre," Matthew Vaughn is hoping to turn the spy genre on its head with "Kingsman: The Secret Service" using the very same ingredients. And a holiday treat has arrived with a new international trailer for the movie. The story is quite simple in this adaptation of Mark Millar's comic. A young kid is recruited into a top secret spy agency, just as a global menace is about to be unleashed. What happens?
