Thanks for Noticing, Golden Guy: Top Ten Oscar-Nominated Actor Acknowledgements

2 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 87th Academy Award nominations for 2015 were recently released on January 15, 2015 representing the excellence in film for the previous year. Naturally there was the standard controversy regarding those films and performances that got unfairly overlooked. Unfortunately, the perceived snubs do happen from year to year so this goes along with the territory. Nevertheless, the lucky selections that do manage to grab Oscar’s attention are understandably grateful and psyched to see if the golden statuette will in fact go home with them on the film industry’s biggest and most elegant evening.

With the obvious crankiness of Oscar omissions aside and the injustices that go with these “reel” deals has anyone ever considered the Academy Award nominees that are surprisingly recognized that could have gone unnoticed for whatever reasoning? After all there are films and exceptional performances that get lost in the shuffle but manage to get the accolades it »

Paul Bettany: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Is ‘Biggest Thing Marvel Have Ever Done’

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leave it to the Vision to be omniscient.

According to Paul Bettany, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is the grandest film in the Marvel universe.

“This is the biggest thing Marvel have ever done,” he told the Radio Times. “It was enormous. I remember we were at Comic-Con and they showed a portion of the footage, and I was just gobsmacked. And I looked down the row and every one of the Avengers was the same, including Samuel Jackson. And his whole modus operandi is ‘I’ve seen everything before, I’m the most chilled out, relaxed man and I’ve seen everything,’ and he was as knocked out as anyone. It’s huge.”

The film will reportedly set a new VFX shot count record for a Marvel film.

Bettany, who will play the red-faced android hero the Vision in “The Avengers” sequel, also described “Age of Ultron’s” set as »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

15 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Matthew Vaughn

Cast: Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 129 minutes

Synopsis: A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.

Mark Miller and Matthew Vaughn (the team who brought audiences the blood-stained joy of Kick-ass) are back with Kingsman: The Secret Service, a new take on the spy film that is riotous fun and full of surprises.

When a spot opens up, each of the Kingsman spies are asked to nominate a potential candidate to take on that position. While most nominate someone of a higher class, wealth and position in society, one nominates the son of a former colleague – after getting him out of jail that is. Eggsy is persuaded to try out but the fish-out-of-water dynamic certainly presents a few challenges and as his relationship with his mentor grows, his hidden potential starts to reveal itself.

First off, there is an incredible ensemble cast to consider. »

Second Opinion – Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service, 2015.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn

Starring Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Sofia Boutella, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Michael Caine and Mark Hamill.

Synopsis:

A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.

The last time comic book writer Mark Millar and director Matthew Vaughn collaborated on an adaptation we got Kick-Ass, a madcap hyper-violent outrageously funny deconstruction of the superhero genre. It was lightning in a bottle, and thankfully that lightning hasn’t left as their next project, Kingsman: The Secret Service, is just as outlandish and entertaining. Imagine taking the over-the-top action sequences of Kick-Ass and mixing them with the narrative of a 60s reminiscent James Bond flick, cranked up to 50 on the absurdity scale. Sounds awesome on paper but the execution is even better.

Part of the reason why has to stem from Matthew Vaughn’s vision as a director, which »

Andy Serkis’ Avengers: Age of Ultron character details revealed?

23 January 2015 3:33 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer arrived a few months ago, there’s been a lot of speculation that Andy Serkis will be playing the Black Panther villain, Ulysses Klaw. This has now seemingly been confirmed, with Schmoes Know reporting that Serkis will indeed portray Klaw, as well as offering up some details about the character.

According to the site, the Marvel Cinematic Universe version is an amalgamation of Ulysses Klaw and his father Fritz Klae. In the comics Klae was an antagonist for the Howling Comandos in World War II, as well as being allies with Baron Von Strucker who appears in Age of Ultron, played by Thomas Kretschmann. The source claims “Fritz could possibly have a small appearance in the film or a passing reference, but most of his attributes will be given to Serkis’ Klaw.”

Quentin Tarantino Begins Filming 'Hateful Eight,' Adds to Cast

23 January 2015 3:28 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Quentin Tarantino has officially begun filming The Hateful Eight. And he's added three new members to the cast: Lee Horsley, Craig Stark and Belinda Owino.

The Western started shooting today (Friday) in Telluride, Colorado. The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walter Goggins, Demian Bichir, Michael Madsen and Channing Tatum. James Parks and Zoe Bell are also on the list.

The Hateful Eight is set a decade or so after the Civil War. There's bounty hunters, fugitives, renegades and other individuals of dubious backgrounds who are forced to hole up in a stagecoach stopover when a snowstorm hits. The travelers soon get the feeling that they may not make it to their destination. As always, the script was written by Tarantino.

The film is scheduled to open later this year.

Paul Bettany teases Avengers: Age of Ultron’s “enormous” scale

23 January 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Bettany, who has played Tony Stark’s A.I. butler J.A.R.V.I.S. multiple times in the Marvel cinematic universe, will be showing up in the flesh for Avengers: Age of Ultron, as popular character and android The Vision. We still know very little about his role, and have yet to see him in any of the footage that’s been released, but judging by these new comments, Bettany will be involved in some pretty big action scenes.

Bettany spoke with RadioTimes.com, and teased Age of Ultron‘s massive scale:

“I’ve never been on a bigger set on my entire life than in The Avengers {Age of Ultron]. One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven’t seen anything that big, so it was like being a kid on a film set again. »

Paul Bettany Describes ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ as Biggest Marvel Movie Yet

23 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Is it bigger than the original “The Avengers?” Is it bigger than “Guardians of the Galaxy” or even “Captain America: The Winter Soldier?”

Actor Paul Bettany believes “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will be the biggest Marvel movie they have ever done.

Bettany will play The Vision in this sequel to the successful “The Avengers.”

“I’ve never been on a bigger set on my entire life than in The Avengers {Age of Ultron],” he told RadioTimes.com during a promotion of “Mortdecai.” “One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven’t seen anything that big, so it was like being a kid on a film set again.”

Bettany added that the footage alone shown at San Diego Comic-Con International was enormous. He and the Comic-Con audience was simply “gobsmacked” this past summer.

23 January 2015 10:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been a long and twisty road to principal photography on The Hateful EightQuentin Tarantino’s latest foray into the western genre. First Gawker leaked the script, resulting in the filing of a lawsuit and Tarantino’s proclamation that he did not intend to make the film. What followed was a single public reading of the script, the lawsuit being dropped, and, finally, Tarantino’s announcement that he would make the movie after all. Now the day is finally here, as The Weinstein Company announces that the director has begun filming on The Hateful Eight.

The Hateful Eight takes place in post-Civil War Wyoming and follows a group of eight people who get trapped during a blizzard. Taking refuge from the storm at a haberdashery in a mountain pass, the group are soon involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. We can expect plenty of the good old Tarantino dialogue, »
