Annabelle Wallis Joins Guy Ritchie’s Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur

17 March 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Best known for her role in period drama The Tudors, Annabelle Wallis will soon be trading out the corsets for an entirely new type of wardrobe. Deadline reports that the British actress has signed on to star alongside Charlie Hunnam in Guy Ritchie’s medieval re-telling Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur.

Wallis will play opposite Hunnam, who stars as the titular sword-puller, as Maid Maggie. As well as the Sons Of Anarchy lead, she joins Astrid Berger Frisby as Guinevere, Jude Law as Vortigern, Eric Bana as Arthur’s father, Djimon Hounsou as Bedivere, Aiden Gillen as Goosefat Bill and Mikael Persbrandt in an as-yet undisclosed role.

A part in Warners’ fledgling franchise – they’re aiming for six movies – could see Wallis become a household name. While she’s currently known for her work on The Tudors and Netflix series Peaky Blinders, she’s not a stranger to the big screen. »

Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham And Jude Law Land Spy Posters

17 March 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following its worldwide premiere at SXSW this weekend, a quartet of UK posters for Spy have debuted online. Each one sheet dedicates its space to one of the three main characters heading up Paul Feig’s next comedy; Melissa McCarthy as the unassuming Susan Cooper, Jude Law as her partner Bradley Fine, and Jason Statham as fellow agent Rick Ford.

Spy marks the reunion of Bridesmaids‘ and The Heat‘s director-star combo, with Feig and McCarthy making jabs at the espionage genre for their third collaboration. The leading lady plays Cooper, a skilled-yet-shy office worker for the CIA, who is called up to serve her country when a field mission is flubbed. With the agency requiring an unknown face and persona, Cooper is thrust into the limelight as their only hope in an international arms blunder.

Early word on the movie has thus far been incredibly positive. Amping up audiences »

The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, Jason Statham, and Rose Byrne and we have a new batch of international posters showcasing their various roles in the film. Unfortunately, the Rose Byrne poster has not popped up yet, but you can see in the four we have that each spy seems to have their own distinct style. Jude Law has a very »

10 Movie Remakes That Were Awful

17 March 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | newser.com | See recent newser news »

Some movie remakes and reboots are actually good , but many are cringeworthy—and Radar runs down 20 of the worst offenders: The 2011 remake of Arthur was called a "career killer" for leading man Russell Brand—especially bad news since it was Brand's first film in the lead role. The 2004 remake of Alfie , starring Jude Law in the lead, cost $60 million to make ... and grossed just $35 million at the worldwide box office. The film version of The A-Team performed so poorly with both critics and audiences that a seemingly inevitable sequel never came about. Even star Liam »

UK posters for comedy movie Spy featuring Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham and Jude Law

17 March 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the movie getting rather positive reviews from its screening at SXSW, we’ve been sent over new UK posters and character posters for comedy Spy, which features Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham and Jude Law.

Check out the posters below:

Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

Spy is out in UK cinemas on June 5th 2015 and is directed by Paul Feig (Ghostbusters) with a cast that also includes Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Miranda Hart.

'Spy' (2015) Movie Review

16 March 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It looks as though there is no stopping this Paul Feig/Melissa McCarthy train. With Bridesmaids and The Heat behind us and a new Ghostbusters ahead, these two obviously have a strong relationship and will continue to work with one another. And good for them. I like the idea of partnerships, continuing to do new things with each other. Some of it works (Bridesmaids) and some of it really doesn't (The Heat). Their new film Spy kind of falls in the middle, giving McCarthy an actual three-dimensional character to play but suffers the fate of modern day alt-driven comedy. By "alt", I do not mean alternative or different. I mean the use of alts, alternate takes. On set, they improv a bunch of different variations of a joke and will see in editing which one works best. Except when this happens, more often than not, they end up wanting to »

New Ghostbusters Director Not Sure What to Do With Iconic Theme Song

16 March 2015 6:06 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Ghostbusters theme song is one of the most recognizable movie tunes ever to come out of Hollywood. But will it be used in the Ghostbusters remake with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon? "We have ways to bring it in that we're playing with, so we'll see," director Paul Feig told me last night at the SXSW premiere of Spy, his new comedy starring McCarthy, Jude Law, Jason Statham and Rose Byrne (more on that later on.) "It's such an iconic thing that part of you goes, 'I don't want to change it,' but then another part of you wants to update it," Feig said. "It's one of the biggest questions we're faced »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Spy’

16 March 2015 4:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If recent misfires like “Tammy” and “Identity Thief” have proved anything, it’s that Melissa McCarthy is virtually indestructible, retaining her comic buoyancy, her tremendous likability and much of her fan base even when stuck with bargain-basement material. All of which makes it even more gratifying to see what she can do with a vehicle that’s firing on all cylinders for a change. In “Spy,” an uproarious blast of globe-trotting action-comedy delirium that doesn’t spoof the espionage-thriller genre so much as drop a series of banana peels in its path, McCarthy plays an eager-to-please desk jockey turned full-blown CIA operative who learns to wield a gun as skillfully as she does a one-liner — a dazzling transformation that represents the actress’s smartest, funniest, most versatile and fully sustained bigscreen showcase to date. Unsurprisingly, her key collaborator here is once again Paul Feig, who directed her to such show-stopping »

Melissa McCarthy, Paul Feig Thrill SXSW With ‘Spy’

15 March 2015 10:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Four years after he arrived to SXSW with “Bridesmaids,” his breakthrough comedy, Paul Feig returned to Austin on Sunday night with “Spy,” a satirical thriller starring Melissa McCarthy as a CIA agent.

Judging by SXSW’s enthusiastic reception, where the crowds laughed even harder than at “Trainwreck,” (which premiered at the Paramount Theatre right before) the screwball caper could be a big hit for Fox when it opens on May 22. The tentpole not only features McCarthy in a showy starring role, it also includes meaty supporting parts for Jason Statham, Jude Law and Rose Byrne (as various spies who may or may not be switching teams throughout the film).

“I’ve always wanted to direct a spy movie but I realized no one is ever going to let me direct a bond movie,” Feig told the audience at the post-screening Q&A. “And I loved working with these funny women, »

Just yesterday, we brought you the first set photo from Guy Ritchie’s medieval epic Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, which found star Charlie Hunnam posing opposite the director on the first day of production.
