Shia Labeouf Explains His Existential Crisis, How Finding God 'Saved' Him

9 hours ago | | See recent news »

Not surprisingly, Shia Labeouf looks up to actors who he says have dealt with darkness: Gary Oldman, Sean Penn and Joaquin Phoenix. But the man he credits with helping him early on? Ben Affleck, who produced his 2003 comedy-drama The Battle of Shaker Heights. "Ben is a really charming dude," he says in the November cover story for Interview, on newsstands Nov. 11. "He was the first guy who really took me off to the side and made me feel like I could do it." What Affleck told Labeouf proved to be sage advice, especially as the former child star recovers from »

Hey Hollywood, Please Don't Soften Up Badass Characters!

17 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I went and saw Universal PicturesDracula Untold last weekend, and not only was I extremely disappointed in the story and script, but their portrayal of Dracula was absurd. Dracula is a badass character, he's suppose to be a very scary dude, and even the real life person that he's based on, Vlad, is just as terrifying, maybe even more so! That is a man that should be feared. Unfortunately, the people who made Dracula Untold removed all of that from this character. They made him a soft heroic person that absolutely does not strike fear in the hearts of men. Dracula is supposed to be a villain. The furthest they should take him away from that would be to make him an anti-hero, but they didn't even play with that notion. I will say that Luke Evans played the part fantastically! It was just the way that the »

Gotham 1.1 Blog: Pilot Review [Contains Spoilers]

13 October 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Danny Cannon

Writer: Bruno Heller

Cast: Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Sean Pertwee, Jada Pinkett Smith, Camren BicondovaErin Richards, Cory Michael Smith, Zabryna Guevara and John Doman

Synopsis: A new recruit in Captain Sarah Essen’s Gotham City Police Department, Detective James Gordon is paired with Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham’s highest-profile cases: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. 

Verdict: After 75 years worth of Comic Books, 10 different animated shows, 8 big screen movies and 5 faces of Batman…it’s fair to say that Gotham had it’s fair share of anticipation. When it was first announced that a live action television series chronicling the early years of Gotham City was in development, the news was met with an equal amount of criticism and curiosity. After the CW’s Smallville took 10 years to put a cape on Tom Welling’s Clark Kent, »

Gotham stars Ben McKenzie (James Gordon), Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), Sean Pertwee (Alfred Pennyworth), Robin Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot), Erin Richards (Barbara Kean), and executive producer Danny Cannon took to the stage at New York Comic-Con earlier today where they revealed new details about what fans can expect throughout Season 1 of the new series.

Earlier this month, the show cast Nicholas D'Agosto as Gotham District Attorney Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face, with executive producer Danny Cannon revealing that he will make his debut in the show's ninth episode, while Victor Zsasz, who was shown in a preview released last month, will show up in the seventh episode. When asked if Harley Quinn will ever appear on the show, the executive producer revealed he eventually wants to see all of the Batman villains on the show, but some can't be included because of how young Bruce is in the show.

Film Review: Artificially Glorified ‘Dracula Untold’ Lacks Reason for Being Retold

11 October 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – For moviegoers, each new film is a chance to escape, feel, fear, cry, be thrilled or laugh. Filmmakers and actors want you to experience this range of emotions, but producers and investors care most about the film making money. That’s why Hollywood is scared of truly original stories. Originality is an unknown without a built-in fan base.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

To minimize their risk and inspire confidence in a return on investment, most new films these days are based on a best-selling book (or a series), a beloved comic book or a remake of an already famous character from the past. Original films like “Juno” and “Once” happen once in a blue moon. They take a huge viral following to break free and impress at the box office.

Going into a short feature-length film like “Dracula Untold,” which is only 92 minutes, you already know it’s following a safety formula. »

Play It Again, Vlad: Shiner’s Debut Attempts to Reboot Legendary Monster

It’s a bit hard on the undead when you shackle their malevolent natures into the censorship of the PG-13 vehicle, one of many reasons that Gary Shiner’s directorial debut, Dracula Untold, doesn’t quite fly right. Another attempt to reboot its slim grab bag of classic movie monsters, Universal at least manages to buoy this bastardization with a decent budget, though its nonsensical narrative isn’t much better than the stench of I, Frankenstein. Cinema’s greatest villains are being replaced by hunky, B-grade actors (sorry to lump you in there Aaron Eckhart) that now have to compete with the action extravaganzas of the Marvel glut at the box office, and until that ever ends, all these reboots can do is reflect what they are—pale, lifeless, inferior copies of the original material they keep recycling. »

George Clooney: 'Batman & Robin got me banned from Comic-Con for 20 years'

10 October 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

George Clooney has quipped that Batman & Robin got him banned from Comic Con events for 20 years.

The actor interrupted his honeymoon yesterday (October 9) to appear at New York Comic Con and promote his forthcoming sci-fi film Tomorrowland.

Confirming that the event was his first ever Comic Con, Clooney said: "Yes, on top of it being my honeymoon I am a virgin."

He continued: "I think since my Batman I was disinvited from Comic Con for 20 years. You're saying it, I see the comments sections on all you guys.

"I met Adam West backstage just now and said, 'Hey, I'm really sorry!' He goes, 'Give me a fist bump', and I said, 'Just hit me!'"

Clooney's ill-fated turn as the Dark Knight brought to a close the Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher run on the franchise in 1997.

The series was put on ice for eight years and revived by »

10 October 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Legendary TV has begun development of a new TV series reboot of the "Lost in Space" franchise reports Deadline.

The original 1960s CBS TV series followed a scientist, his family and a military pilot who are sent on a mission to colonise deep space.

Luke Evans would 'love to' wear the fangs again after 'Dracula Untold'

8 October 2014 6:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Luke Evans is finishing his run as Bard the Bowman in this year's "The Hobbit:  The Battle of Five Armies," the third entry in that series, and he is definitely interested in being an integral part of another franchise.  He has a chance at that with this week's "Dracula Untold." Directed by Gary Shore, this new tale of the world's most famous vampire is an origin story, with Evans starring as the Transylvanian Prince, Vlad III.  Taking place in the 15th Century, the movie offers the story of how Vlad, (in this version) a kind and just ruler with a questionable past winds up becoming the monster we know as Dracula.  Evans spent a few minutes with us earlier this week to talk about the movie and whether he'll ever wear fangs again.  Short answer, he hopes to. "I'd love to go wherever he's going to go," Evans said.  "Let's »

From Under the Radar to Potential Oscar Contention

7 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The conversation surrounding potential supporting actress nominees includes some names familiar to the Oscar race, such as Meryl Streep (Into the Woods), and some that could be nominated for the first time, such as Emma Stone (Birdman). The list of potential contenders also includes Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Rene Russo (Nightcrawler), two ladies that have flown under the radar since the 90s but could mark their return with first-time Oscar nominations.

Arquette’s role as the mother in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, a film that chronicles 12 years in a young boy’s (played by Ellar Coltrane) life as he grows up in a divorced household, has been generating Oscar buzz since the film premiered at Sundance. Arquette was involved in a few projects during those 12 years of filming, which was possible due to the sporadic nature of shooting, only three to four days a year. »

Ray Winstone’s BAFTA Talk On Tough Guys, ‘Noah’ & Working With Scorsese

5 October 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

BAFTA’s latest Life In Pictures conversation featured British screen icon Ray Winstone, who proved a big draw despite the unseasonably warm October afternoon. With no new title to stump for (although he did mention his upcoming childhood-focused autobiography Young Winstone), the veteran instead entertained the crowd with a freewheeling look at his four-decade-long career, which includes prominent roles in films such as Noah, The Departed, and Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

While he had plenty of quips about his adventures in Hollywood – including an uncanny Martin Scorsese impression – Winstone spoke passionately about his work in British cinema.

Famous for playing East End tough guys – “My wife asked me why I always walk in a room looking like I’m going to kill someone” – Winstone waxed lyrical about Gary Oldman’s work directing him in the gritty 1997 drama Nil By Mouth.

That film unflinchingly looks at »

Dracula Untold, Dracula undying, Dracula overdone?

2 October 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dracula Untold bites the UK box office this week, but are we reaching vampire overload, James wonders...

Drac is back (in, erm, black, but we're not going to crank AC/DC because it's cliché, it's anachronistic in this medieval setting and it might be mistaken as a reference to Iron Man). If you go to your local cinema this weekend you can see Dracula Untold which has Luke Evans vamping it up as the latest incarnation of the most infamous bloodsucker in cultural history.

Once the movie has been seen the title should be changed to 'Dracula Told' because then it won't be a story 'Untold' but, ah, I digress. The important thing to know is that audiences are going to get to enjoy a new movie expanding the Dracula mythos and this one has a lot to offer cinemagoers getting into the horror mindset in the Halloween month.

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

Ten Best: Unforgettable Dracula Performances

1 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Horror cinema has a long tradition of creating iconic characters and none more so than those borne in the early days of the genre: characters such as Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and, of course, Dracula – the king of horror. A character who, despite his many cinematic deaths, always returns to the silver screen for one more bite of flesh… As he does this week in Dracula Untold, which features Luke Evans as the evil Vlad Tepes.

With that in mind we thought we’d rundown the ten best unforgettable Dracula performances in cinema. Check them out below and let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree!

Dracula (1958) is the first in the series of Hammer Horror films. Directed by Terence Fisher, Dracula (1958) stars Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Melissa Stribling, Carol Marsh and Michael Gough. Retitled Horror of Dracula »
