1 hour ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Matt Reeves, director of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, talks with Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr. about the work of Andy Serkis, and how visual-effects house Weta Workshop transformed Serkis physical performance into Caesar, the chimp leading the apes after a worldwide plague has decimated the human population. Reeves and Fleming spoke as part of Deadline’s annual Oscar showcase, The Contenders.

The film also starred Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke and Keri Russell.  Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver wrote the script from Pierre Boulle’s original novel. It was produced by Jaffa, Silver, Matt Dylan and Peter Chernin.

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Director Ridley Scott on Creating His Vision of Moses

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

The ideal place to meet Ridley Scott would be on a raging battlefield, in the furthest reaches of outer space, or in the midst of any of the other vast canvases on which he creates his movies.

Instead, we’re sitting in a basement salon at London’s trendy Ham Yard Hotel, where the 76-year-old director has parked himself, however briefly, to discuss his new biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” and to ruminate on his long career.

“You’re probably going to be sitting down, so you’re not going to get a proper sense of him,” actor Christian Bale, who stars in Scott’s new film as Moses, warned this reporter a few days earlier. “You’ve got to see Rid on the move to understand him. He’s totally kinetic. I’m absolutely sure he springs out of bed at 10 times the speed I do.”

Thn Turns 11! A Look Back At Our Favourite Films – Batman Begins (2005)

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

If we go back before the huge success of The Dark Knight (2008) and the media-hyped excitement of The Dark Knight Rises (2012), there still lives a pure gem from Christopher Nolan in the shape of Batman Begins (2005).

Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) brought our cave and mansion dwelling hero to the big screen in a way no-one had ever expected and those two movies, very specifically, still stand up to the endlessly changeable tests of time. When Joel Schumacher took up the reigns for the likes of Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997), none of us ever thought that the Bat-man would make such an ambitious return some years later when Christopher Nolan turned up with an absolute game-changer for both his back catalogue and the superhero film industry.

Batman Begins remains one of the best of the last 11 years with a truly tremendous origin story that’s swathed in truth, »

Current 'Planet of the Apes' Series May Be More Than 3 Movies

21 November 2014 7:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was released in theaters, a third movie was being planned as 20th Century Fox promised to present Caesar's story as a trilogy. Now, speaking with MTV, Andy Serkis teases that the rebooted series could expend past that, becoming four, or maybe even five movies.

Right now, Andy Serkis can't say too much about the next sequel, as a script hasn't been finalized. According to the actor, he doesn't yet know how far along Planet of the Apes 3 will pick up after the events seen in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

To be honest, it's very, very early in where we choose to drop our anchor in the next film, so it could be five years after the event. It could be the night after the events of where we left 'Dawn,' so it's very difficult to know where »

Daniel Espinosa Will Possibly Direct Boston Bombings Film ‘Boston Strong’

19 November 2014 2:10 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Safe House director Espinosa has stepped up to direct the planned movie based around the 2013 Boston bombings, Boston Strong. Espinosa, whose next film to hit the big screen in Child 44 with Ton Hardy and Gary Oldman, is officially in talks with 20th Century Fox to helm the film, which was set to star Casey Affleck, who we believe has just exited the project for unknown reasons.

The film will be based on the forthcoming book of the same name by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge. The book is said to ‘chronicle the aftermath of the bombing, specifically the massive manhunt for the perpetrators and the city’s reaction to the tragedy.’

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Blu-ray Review

17 November 2014 5:15 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Nick Thurston, Terry Notary, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer | Written by Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver | Directed by Matt Reeves

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  will be categorized as a summer blockbuster because of its release date, high budget, and extensive use of special effects. However, its story and character first mentality along with its stark wiliness to take chances makes it an almost anti-blockbusters. Now that is not to say it is void of thrilling action or inspired set-pieces. There is plenty of entertainment to be had. It is simply not driving the story and in many ways the least interesting aspect of the entire film. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  may be a sequel to an already rebooted franchise. That does not mean it cannot be filled with innovative »

10 Producers to Watch: Campbell-Grobman Films

11 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Friends Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell came together as producing partners in 2011 as Campbell-Grobman Films after working as exec producers to help set up films such as Lionsgate’s “Leatherface 3D” and Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy “A Case of You,” which stars Justin Long, Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser.

Grobman also was an exec producer on the Michael Shannon-Chris Evans crime drama “The Iceman” and James Cox’s indie dramedy “Straight A’s,” both of which co-star Campbell.

The duo scored with 2013’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” which took in $47 million worldwide.

But don’t label them as horror queens.

“We’ve done a lot of different things,” says Campbell, whose acting credits include “Drive Angry,” “The Mechanic” and a fair amount of genre. “We were nominated for an Emmy for (documentary) ‘Brave Miss World,’ ” she adds, and their list also includes exec producing duties on “She’s Funny That Way, »

The 30 Best Horror Movies of the Past 30 Years

10 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The slasher movie, if we'll admit it to ourselves, is about our fears of teen sexuality. Whether you're a teen made nervous by your own hormones or a parent afraid of what trouble those hormones will get your kid into, the slasher-movie villain is your fears made flesh. But with the release 30 years ago this week (November 9, 1984) of Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street," the slasher film entered a new dimension.

With the creation of Freddy Krueger (played indelibly by Robert Englund), who could kill teens in their dreams, the slasher villain proved there was no place that was safe, not even the subconscious.

In retrospect, the genre may have peaked with the release of this film; after all, how many other slasher villains since have been anywhere near as memorable? Unlike his predecessors, Jason Voorhees (of the "Friday the 13th" movies) and Michael Myers (of the "Halloween »

Mechanic: Resurrection, Starring Jason Statham, Set For January 2016; Criminal Also Dated

10 November 2014 7:09 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even as EuropaCorp prepares to relaunch the Transporter series, with the Ed Skrein-led Transporter Legacy set for next summer, the original Transporter himself is gearing up for a new action franchise. Jason Statham has been confirmed to reprise the role of Arthur Bishop in Mechanic: Resurrection, a long-planned follow-up to the rather forgettable 2011 actioner The Mechanic.

Shockingly, Statham will be joined in the sequel by the likes of Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones and Michelle Yeoh. Resurrection finds the main character, a hit-man, pulled back into the business after the love of his life is kidnapped by a formidable enemy. Determined to rescue her, he embarks on a mission to “complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world.”

Dennis Gansel (The Wave, We Are the Night) is directing the film, which kicked off production in Bangkok, Thailand, earlier this week. So far, Resurrection »

Mechanic: Resurrection Release Date Set for January 22, 2016; Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, and Tommy Lee Jones Star

7 November 2014 4:11 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The long-discussed Mechanic 2 is finally coming, and it now has a release date and a cast.  Summit Entertainment announced today that Mechanic: Resurrection will open in theaters on January 22, 2016 with a cast led by Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones, and Michelle Yeoh.  Statham reprises his role from the 2011 actioner, and the story kicks into gear when someone from his past forces him back into the business.  He must then “complete an impossible list of assassinations of the most dangerous men in the world.”  I barely remember the first Mechanic even existing, and I’m kind of flabbergasted to see Jones listed as part of the ensemble for the follow-up.  Nevertheless, German director Dennis Gansel (Die Welle) takes the helm this time around, taking over from Simon West. Additionally, another Millennium Films production has been given a released date, as Summit will distribute Ariel Vromen’s (The Iceman) actioner »

7 November 2014 4:01 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Today brought news of a couple sequels-to-movies-that-don't-need-them. First, we learned that Frank Grillo will lead "Beyond Skyline," and now a sequel to the barely successful 2011 Jason Statham vehicle "The Mechanic" is on the way.
