Horror Comic The Woods Heading To Television

8 October 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Perhaps with an eye on a new Walking Dead, or a Lost, or a mixture of the two, Universal Cable Productions have just snapped up the rights to Boom! Studios' comic The Woods. Boom!'s Ross Richie will executive produce the show, along with Universal's Stephen Christie and Josh Levy.The Woods was created by James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal) and Michael Dialynas, and was Boom!'s most successful title of last year. It involves a field trip students, teachers and supplementary staff from a Milwaukee high school who vanish without trace and find themselves transported to a primordial wilderness on the other side of the universe.Boom! was the studio that published 2 Guns, filmed a couple of years ago by Baltasar Kormakur, with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. In the other direction they also do a nice line in screen-to-comic adaptations, publishing strong series of Hellraiser, Planet Of The Apes and others. »

Fast & Furious 8: 10 Huge Rumours You Need To Know

4 October 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

When Paul Walker tragically lost his life at the end of 2013, the end of the Fast and Furious franchise seemed inevitable. Surely the seventh film would be wrapped up with a fitting tribute to the star and everyone would move on?


Thanks to a behemoth box office haul – perhaps propelled by sentimentality and morbid intrigue surrounding Walker’s death – the nitrous-fuelled series smashed those expectations with the announcement that Vin Diesel would return.

Beyond that – and the !*$%umption that the title will be some sort of variation on Fast & Furious 8 – little concrete information is known. Occasionally Diesel will stoke the fires by dropping interesting morsels, but there’s a distinctly mysterious air about the hotly-anticipated eighth film. Which is a strange thing to say, given the lack of precedent for franchises that go beyond 3 or 4 without sucking increasingly.

Robert Zemeckis interview: The Walk, modern filmmaking

4 October 2015 4:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chatted to Robert Zemeckis about his dizzying new film, The Walk, and the job of a movie director…

Now in his fifth decade of movie-making, you might assume that Robert Zemeckis’ stature as a director would make it easy to attract funding for a new project. Not so. His latest feature, The Walk, took a decade to get to cinemas, a decade during which multiple investors passed on a film they didn’t see as slotting in to a tried and tested category. Based on the true story of Philippe Petit’s 1974 high-wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center, you can see their point.  Part salute to the ineffable act of artistic creation, part theme park attraction, The Walk doesn’t pigeonhole easily. But then, Zemeckis’ films rarely do.

The enforced wait turned out to be fortuitous. In that ten years, digital and 3D technology »

Real reason why Rupert Wyatt walked away from Gambit revealed

1 October 2015 6:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox are really having a tough year aren’t they when it comes to their superhero projects? Despite most people being fairly excited for their upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool movies, it’s their other comic-book projects that are hugging the headlines this year. The Josh Trank helmed reboot of Fantastic Four was critically panned as one of the worst superhero movies of all time and just a few weeks ago Gambit lost its director Rupert Wyatt.

Wyatt’s departure was citied to scheduling difficulties after production on the project was shifted back to March 2016 but now a new report from THR claims the real reason he left was, surprise surprise, because of a distinct difference in vision of the character and world in which he lives in.

THR say that Fox “began to question whether Wyatt was in fact committed to moving ahead on the project.”

The Equality in Dying: Sollett’s Topical Gay Rights Issue Explores Yesterday’s Nightmares

Had a film like Freeheld been released in the late 2000s, shortly after the trailblazing gay rights victory documented here transpired, it would have seemed courageous and daring even despite its significant flaws as a social issue film about gays made specifically to appeal to heterosexual sensibilities. In recent years, following the increased progress in gay rights, from the repeal of Proposition Eight in 2013 and this year’s Us Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage nationwide, we’ve seen several major prestige pictures nabbing lucrative awards, like 2013’s extremely spruced up The Dallas Buyers Club. As far as the importance of awareness and acceptance goes, these films are still important, now that some distance from the period allows the chance for significant introspection on the ragged road to basic vestiges of equality.

Why Did Rupert Wyatt Exit "Gambit"?

30 September 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following on from his success with "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," filmmaker Rupert Wyatt has become famous more for the films he has dropped out of than the one he actually made - "The Gambler" remake.

The drop outs included the 'Apes' sequel, the Charlize Theron-led "Agent 13," a Michael Fassbender-led Alexander Litvinenko project, and the Denzel Washington-led "The Equaliser" reboot.

His most recent departure was two weeks ago when he dropped out of the "X-Men" spin-off "Gambit" starring Channing Tatum. At the time he cited a scheduling conflict with an unnamed project.

Now, sources for THR say that the real split arose after the studio questioned whether Wyatt was in fact committed to doing the project.

This reportedly isn't a "Fantastic Four"-style situation where the director became withdrawn and isolated, Wyatt is "a talent guy... he shows up. He comes early. He stays late. »

28 September 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Detective Alonzo Harris is one of the greatest villains in cinema history, and the events of Antoine Fuqua.s Training Day do nothing to redeem him in the slightest. A corrupt cop who tries to impart his dirty ways on his new and impressionable partner, he winds up on the wrong side of the Russian Mafia. Until now, there's only way we ever thought that the story would end, but recent comments from Denzel Washington have shown that this wasn.t always the case.

The Hollywood Reporter recently covered an event where Washington was on stage talking about the various accomplishments of his career. Which means those who were attending were treated to some wonderful pieces of trivia involving some of his biggest roles, one of which was his Academy Award-winning performance as Harris. As »

Box Office: ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Overshadowing ‘The Intern’

23 September 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hotel Transylvania 2” will take a bite out of the box office this weekend, as “The Intern” looks to recapture the sparkle of past Nancy Meyers hits like “Something’s Gotta Give” and “It’s Complicated.”

Then there’s “Everest,” the high-altitude adventure that got off to a muscular start in a limited Imax and premium format run last weekend. It expands to 3,004 theaters on Friday. The trio of high profile releases join holdovers like “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “Black Mass” in powering what is shaping up to be a healthy September for ticket sales. The past three weekends have seen overall receipts top the year-ago period, and overall revenues are up 20% from last year. The streak could continue if the combination of the “Hotel Transylvania” followup, Meyers’ latest comedy, and the mountaineering drama prove to be a bigger draw than Denzel Washington’s “The Equalizer” and “The »

The A-List Actor Who Almost Starred In Se7en

21 September 2015 8:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You'll probably find a number of stories floating around the next few days about David Fincher's Se7en, and with good reason. It was 20 years ago this week that the haunting thriller found its way into theaters. In the years since then, the movie has garnered cult status, and as a result we've gotten to hear numerous fun behind-the-scenes stories about the film. For example, did you know that there was a developing version of the feature that had Denzel Washington in mind for one of the leads? Yahoo! has published a list of interesting bits of trivia about Se7en, and included among them is the tidbit that the star of Malcolm X, Philadelphia, and Glory was originally eyed for the part of Detective Mills in the movie - the role that would eventually go on to belong to Brad Pitt. That version of the film was much different »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt walks a fine line in new trailer for The Walk

21 September 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt dons blue eyes and a French accent to play high-wire artist Philippe Petit in Robert ZemeckisThe Walk. The film follows Petit’s attempt to walk on a wire across the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974 New York. The film looks to be a visual thrill-ride, playing in IMAX and transporting audiences to witness this extraordinary feat that took place almost 40 years ago.

Robert Zemeckis, the Academy-Award winning director whose career spans films from Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, and most recently, the Denzel Washington film, Flight, promises an epic adventure- even if the outcome may already be known. The film also stars Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon (The Hundred-Foot Journey, Mood Indigo), and Ben Schwartz (“Bojack Horseman”, “House of Lies”). Most of the film, however, literally rides on the shoulders of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, whose role is a diversion for the actor, and is also physically challenging. »

McFarland review: “A decent sports drama that ticks all of the right boxes”

McFarland review: An inspirational tale, which, while very formulaic, ticks all of the right boxes… McFarland review

Kevin Costner stars in McFarland (aka McFarland, USA), the latest family sports drama from Disney.

Disney are the absolute masters at heart-warming sports-drama. Following the success of last year’s Million Dollar Arm, which was pretty decent, and previous efforts like Cool Runnings (brilliant), Invincible (okay) and even Remember The Titans with Denzel Washington (decent), the studio presents McFarland, a film named after one of the poorest towns in California, situated just north of Los Angeles. In this true story, Kevin Costner plays the role of Jim White, a shamed football coach who has to relocate his family due to an incident with one of the students at a former school. Things aren’t great at the new, much smaller school, and White chooses to switch sports and coach a young group of Latino kids in cross-country running, »

'Seven': 20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About David Fincher's Classic

21 September 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Two decades later, we're still totally creeped out by "Seven."

The seven-deadly-sins-inspired serial killer thriller, which opened 20 years ago this week (on September 22, 1995), helped put director David Fincher on the map and marked a career milestone for stars Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Spacey. What's more, from its jittery opening credits to its grim shocker of an ending, "Seven" has become a template for how to make a dark, suspenseful crime drama.

Despite its many imitators, however, "Seven" maintains its secrets, from who almost starred in it to how it accomplished its unsettling effects to the softened ending that was almost tacked on. Here are some of those secrets. (Warning: Spoilers follow, though, c'mon, the movie's 20 years old.)

1. "Seven" screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker has a cameo. He's the corpse seen at the beginning of the movie.

2. Walker wrote the screenplay, his first, while living in New York City and »

Denzel Washington Is Bringing All of August Wilson’s Plays to HBO

18 September 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

According to Deadline, Denzel Washington is planning to adapt August Wilson's Pittsburgh Cycle for HBO. While speaking at USC Thursday night, Washington told the crowd that he would produce and direct every installment in the cycle — a series of ten plays about the black experience in Pittsburgh in each decade of the 20th century — at a pace of one per year. The actor also revealed that he would star alongside Viola Davis in the HBO version of Wilson's Pulitzer Prize–winning Fences; the pair won Tonys for starring in the play's 2010 Broadway revival. Throughout his life, Wilson was adamant that any film version of Fences should be directed by a black filmmaker — as he said in 1990, "White directors are not qualified for the job. The job requires someone who shares the specifics of the culture of black Americans." »
