Rupert Wyatt To Resurrect A Horror Icon By Helming TV Pilot Of The Exorcist

2 February 2016 3:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is moving fast in its efforts to resurrect dormant horror classic The Exorcist. Barely a week has passed since the network ordered a pilot episode of the modern reimagining, and now Fox has appointed director Rupert Wyatt at the helm.

Best known for his work across Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Mark Wahlberg drama The Gambler, Wyatt will take point for a reinvention of William Peter Blatty’s seminal 1971 book, a different spin on an old horror that has been pitched as a “serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession and confronting the face of true evil.”

For Wyatt, it marks a return to TV following a string of stop-starts in the blockbuster space. Not long after opting to pass up tentpole sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the filmmaker also pulled out of The Equalizer and, »

Michael Bay is returning to make one more Transformers film - and he starts shooting this May, it seems...

With 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Banghazi now in cinemas around the world, director Michael Bay is free to move onto his next project. And, in a surprise to nobody really, that project is Transformers 5.

Bay confirmed earlier this year that he wanted to make one more Transformers film himself - having directed the four so far - before handing the series over to someone else. It's no secret that Paramount has plans for a full Transformers movie universe once Transformers 5 is done.

It's full steam ahead, then. Transformers 5, we now learn, is set to start filming this coming May, and the smart money is on a release date in July 2017, or thereabouts.

Mark Wahlberg will return to lead the cast.

More as we hear it. »

'Transformers 5' Begins Shooting in May

1 February 2016 1:04 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, we reported that the Transformers writers room had completed their work. It was originally thought that Transformers 5 would start shooting in June of this year, with Paramount aiming for a summer 2017 release date. Now that Michael Bay has been confirmed to direct, it seems production has been moved up slightly, with My Entertainment World reporting that shooting is now set to begin in May, although no specific shooting locations were mentioned.

Mark Wahlberg is returning as Cade Yeager from Transformers: Age of Extinction, but it isn't known quite yet if Nicola Peltz (Tessa Yeager) and Jack Reynor (Shane Dyson) will also be reprising their roles in the sequel. While no story details have been revealed quite yet, a recent profile on director Michael Bay teased "an underwater rendering of a crash-landed alien spaceship," along with a "new dump-truck Transformer with a cloak."

Next Transformers Film to Begin Production in May

1 February 2016 11:04 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Who in the world would have predicted that the Transformers franchise would be such a financial juggernaut? Sure, before the first film came out in 2007, people knew it would be a hit on some level--surely it wouldn't have ever been funded unless they had faith. The real head-scratcher here is that they've managed to break $1 billion worldwide with the last two films, despite the low quality of the movies themselves (Transformers: Age Of Extinction seems to be widely accepted as the worst entry in the series).

All the same, Michael Bay and company must be doing something right, otherwise they wouldn't be hitting it off so well at the box office. Fans of the series know that there's a fifth Transformers film in the making--and many more to come, if the writer's room is any indication. Not only is Mark Wahlberg coming back to reprise his role, but director Michael Bay »

The Flash Season 2: 16 Wtf Moments From ‘The Reverse-Flash Returns’

28 January 2016 1:47 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The CW

In this latest outing of The CW’s Scarlet Speedster-centric show, The Reverse-Flash Returns does exactly as it says on the tin. As it says, Reverse-Flash is well and truly back. For now, at least.

With the return of the show’s greatest villain to date comes one of the show’s best episodes to date, which is no mean feat considering the high quality of episode that The Flash deals out on a regular basis. Whilst Eobard Thawne would sadly depart present-day Central City by the time this outing came to a close, the episode gave us an insight into this rogue’s mindset and what drove him to become the villainous Reverse-Flash. Added to that, it also made for some awesome viewing to see Barry Allen confronted with the man who is (or should that be ‘will be’?) responsible for killing his mother and for causing »

28 January 2016 10:14 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After roles on TV’s “Kingdom” and “Scream Queens,” Nick Jonas continues his onscreen reinvention with “Goat.” The indie, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, tells the story of two brothers (Jonas and Ben Schnetzer) who must endure their college fraternity’s terrifying hazing practices. Jonas spoke to Variety about the part and the direction in which he wants to take his acting career.

Did you sit through the movie at its premiere?

I did. I had seen pieces, but this was the first time I sat through it all the way through. It was a really intense experience. My friend came with me and said he was watching me watching it, and I couldn’t relax. It does the job it’s supposed to do. But it leaves you in a strange place after.

Did you have to audition?

I did. I went in and read »

Seven of the Greatest Driving Films of all Time

25 January 2016 8:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you are anything like me you couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel of a car. I remember being lucky enough to get my first car before I was even old enough to learn to drive (thanks to my parents). Most of that excitement was based on growing up watching classic driving movies and wanting to experience the thrill of the open road.

Of course, the reality of driving is very different and staying safe and knowing the laws of the road were very important for mine and my friends’ enjoyment. This is the important groundwork needed to make the dream comes true.

If anything the dream of the driving movies spurs you on to do all that important work. So, where should you look for inspiration that will stick with you? Here are some of my greatest driving films of all time:

Hollywood is helping Flint, Michigan. The water supply in Flint has been deemed so unsafe that the state attorney general advised parents to keep their children away from it, including a warning against bathing while President Barack Obama has declared a state of emergency, according to NBC News. Thousands are feared to have suffered permanent brain damage while 10 residents have died from Legionnaire's Disease. Because the crisis has become so bad, stars have started to donate bottled water in order to alleviate some of the pain the lead-tainted water has caused.

Adam McKay interview: The Big Short, Four Lions & more

Oscar-nominee Adam McKay chats to us about The Big Short, Four Lions, Cabin In The Woods, Ant-Man, screenwriting and more…

I met Adam McKay at some posh hotel, where he’d just done some filmed interviews. As such, when he got to me, he told me he was going to recline on the couch “aggressively”. Which he did. So as the Oscar-nominated director and co-writer of The Big Short made himself comfy, with his film having pocketed a bunch of Oscar nominations, and finally heading into UK cinemas.

I thus began….

You’ve talked to us in the past about there being a purchase point where you commit to a film. That with Anchorman, it was Will Ferrell seeing footage of a sexist 70s real-life anchorman. With The Other Guys, it was a dinner with Mark Wahlberg when you realised he could do comedy.

Yeah, the two »

Mojave – The Review

22 January 2016 12:52 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Serial killer movies are like westerns or gangster flicks; there are all levels of them from cheap slasher exploitation to procedural ones where the heroes are scientific-minded detectives and all sorts of variations in between. Mojave, written and directed by Oscar winner William Monahan (for writing The Departed) is the existential  and psychological type.  It stars Oscar Isaac, Mark Wahlberg, Garret Hedlund, and Walton Goggins. With that cast and pedigree, you would expect Mojave to be a major release, but the new film has slipped quietly into few theaters this weekend with little fanfare.  It’s seriously flawed and I understand why the studio had little faith in it, but it has its moments and for adventurous moviegoers it’s worth seeking out.

Garrett Hedlund stars in Mojave as Thomas, a shaggy-haired movie producer who has it all: a beautiful wife and child, a sprawling home, and a foxy French »

Movie Review: Mojave

22 January 2016 5:01 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

A disaffected celebrity incurs the wrath of a menacing drifter in Mojave, a rote psycho thriller that wears its Shakespearian influences on its tattered sleeves before clumsily morphing into Come at Me Bro: The Movie as each of the two determined adversaries engage in a relentless battle of wills. The sophomore directorial effort from Academy Award-winning screenwriter William Monahan (The Departed), this beige, low-budget indie isn’t likely to be remembered as more than a curious foot note in the filmography of rising star Oscar Isaac as roles in A Most Violent Year, Ex-Machina, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens thrust the charismatic leading man ever further up the Hollywood A-list.

In his screenplay for The Departed, Monahan used the foundation of Andrew Lau’s Infernal Affairs to weave a masterful tapestry of fear and paranoia in the South Boston criminal underworld. Their motives cloaked in mystery as they navigated »
