Michelle Rodriguez is Out for Revenge in New Trailer for Walter Hill’s ‘The Assignment’

24 February 2017 6:47 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Is it problematic or concerning that a film’s catalytic event is someone outraged over their forced gender reassignment surgery? You decide, as the new trailer for the Michelle Rodriguez-led The Assignment posits that exact question. After a hitman is double-crossed, he is captured by an enigmatic figure known as The Doctor (Sigourney Weaver) and turned into a… woman. Now, obviously, the only course of action is revenge — bloody, violent revenge.

While The Warriors is a cult classic, director Walter Hill has made some rather questionable films in the 40-odd years since, including his most recent effort, Bullet To The Head (a title I love, despite it bearing the content of one I don’t). Whether The Assignment will offer the gleeful iconography of Hill’s glory days, or fall into the $5 dollar bin next month is yet to be seen by this viewer. However, in our review from Tiff we said, »

Alien: Covenant 4-Minute Prologue Video Introduces the Crew

22 February 2017 6:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It has been nearly five years since we have seen a movie from the Alien franchise in theaters, and a whole lot longer since we have seen a truly great entry in the legendary sci-fi series. That looks like it all may change this summer when Alien: Covenant scares its way into theaters, a movie that has inspired a lot of confidence and hope in fans up to this point. Now we have some brand new footage from the movie, giving us a new look at the latest Alien entry.

Fox debuted this new footage during the latest episode of FX's Legion. It is a 4-minute prologue from the movie that features James Franco and Danny McBride. While it may not be a trailer, this may actually be better in some sense. It is actually the official prologue to Alien: Covenant, which introduces the crew of the mission as they »

Get The Skinny On Danny Rand With New Featurette For Marvel’s Iron Fist

22 February 2017 6:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Want to get the inside scoop on Iron Fist ahead of March 17th? Worry not, as a new featurette has arrived just in time to preview Marvel and Netflix’s fourth solo series.

Walking on the foundations laid by Daredevil, Jessica Jones and last year’s Luke Cage, Iron Fist is a 13-part series designed to introduce Marvel’s final Defender ahead of the planned team-up series later in 2017. But before Danny Rand joins forces with Matt Murdock and the rest of the gang to tackle Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra, he’ll be making inroads back to New York City in an attempt to course-correct Rand Enterprises and, ultimately, use his newfound abilities to stomp out crime from within NYC’s seedy underbelly. All of that and more is teased in the featurette above, which is packed to the rafters with new footage of Finn Jones as the titular Iron Fist, »

Full crew image released for Alien: Covenant

21 February 2017 9:56 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Ahead of a new Alien: Covenant trailer sneaking in during the next episode of Legion on FX tomorrow evening, 20th Century Fox has released a new image of the full Alien: Covenant crew including a first look at James Franco as Captain Branson.

Related: Exclusive: James Franco confirms Alien: Covenant involvement

The crew picture which includes the movie’s stars, Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby, has a few too many smiles radiating out of the image. Where guessing they’ve all polished off that empty bottle of Jack Daniels on the table just a little too quickly.

Check out the new photo below from the upcoming film, and then watch Legion on FX tomorrow, February 22, for an exclusive Alien: Covenant debut.

Alien: Covenant Crew Photo Has First Look at James Franco

21 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you didn't believe that James Franco was going to be part of the Alien: Covenant cast before, here's your definitive proof. 20th Century Fox has released the official Covenant Crew photo, and we see Franco standing front and center looking Jesus like in his white robes, and he's seen standing next to his frequent on-screen collaborator and sometimes comedy partner Danny McBride. Fox had this to say about the photo.

"Introducing the Alien Covenant crew. Check out the new photo below from the upcoming film, then watch Legion on FX tomorrow, February 22, for an exclusive Alien: Covenant debut."

So far, 20th Century Fox has released only one teaser trailer for Alien: Covenant. And this latest sneak peek doesn't sound like it will be the full-trailer either. Which makes us think that director Ridley Scott is being sneaky on his build-up to the May 19, 2017 release date. Perhaps much of the thrills, »

‘Planet Earth II’: How Camera Tech and Political Division Turned Nature Doc Into a Phenomenon

17 February 2017 10:47 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “Planet Earth” premiered in 2006 on Britain’s BBC One, it was the most expensive nature documentary series ever made, and the first to be shot entirely in HD. It was also a ratings bonanza. The first five episodes averaged 11.4 million viewers in the U.K. alone.

So why did it take 11 years to get a sequel on the air?

“These guys don’t want to make these shows just for the sake of making them or just for the sake of a large audience,” says Sarah Barnett, president of BBC America, where the miniseries will make its U.S. television premiere on Saturday night. “They’re driven by wanting to tell the best stories that they think they can tell.”

The first “Planet Earth” was remarkable largely because of its innovative use of HD cameras. “Planet Earth II” was sparked by further advances in camera technology that would allow the filmmakers to tell a more intimate »

A show like “Planet Earth II” doesn’t come around every day. In fact, it’s been 10 years since the original nature docuseries wowed the world with mind-blowing filmmaking that was both visually breathtaking and emotionally stirring. Now it’s back and better than ever, featuring even more rare looks at the world around us, great storytelling and the original narration by David Attenborough (last time, we Yanks got the Sigourney Weaver dub).

15 February 2017 11:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin — Madrid-based Latido Films, Oscar-winning Tornasol Films and Woody Allen producer Atresmedia Cine are re-teaming on Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s “El Reino,” starring Antonio de la Torre.

All five backed Sorogoyen’s latest 2016 release, “May God Save Us,” a harrowing serial killer thriller which, consolidating Sorogoyen’s reparation as a director to track, was distributed by Warner Bros. in Spain, won best screenplay at September’s San Sebastian Festival last year and was still racking up international sales for Latido at this week’s Berlin European Film Market.

The lead producer on “May God Save Us,” Gerardo Herrero and Mariela Besuievsky’s Tornasol Films, an arthouse institution in Spain, produced Juan Jose Campanella’s “The Secret in Their Eyes,” which won an Academy Award for best foreign-language film in 2009.

Sam Worthington says Avatar 2 is a movie about family

15 February 2017 9:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Cameron has spent almost as long developing his Avatar sequels as he did the first movie, but after confirming that the scripts are now finished, it looks like he’s about ready to pull the trigger on his hugely ambitious plans to shoot Four movies back to back.

The sequels will see Sam Worthington reprising his role as Jake Sully, and speaking to We Got This Covered to promote his new film The Shack, the actor has spoken about his preparation, as well as revealing that family will be a big theme of Avatar 2.

“They’re going to be shooting concurrently,” said Worthington. “The plan is to have some time in between, I think, but these things are always ambiguous until they start. We’re still set to start in the summer, though. James needed time to perfect the scripts. Whenever he says jump I go because he’s the man. »

Avatar 2 Will Blow Our Minds With Unheard Of "Family Concept"

14 February 2017 4:03 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Well, just when you think James Cameron could not possibly provide an even higher level of genius, he goes right to the old chalkboard and comes up with this strange and unique idea known as "The Family Concept." I can not for the life of me think of any other movies with this unparalleled approach.

We Got This Covered was able to interview Sam Worthington the star of Avatar 2 in New York, while promoting his new film The Shack. He talks about this incredible new concept, and discusses the lengthy time it is taking to get the film made.

“They’re going to be shooting concurrently. The plan is to have some time in between, I think, but these things are always ambiguous until they start. We’re still set to start in the summer, though. James needed time to perfect the scripts. Whenever he says jump I go because he’s the man. »

By the time Avatar 2 gets here, will anyone even still care to see it anymore? The first film may have grossed an eye-watering $2.78 billion at the box office, but that was back in 2009. With the sequel not even set to go in front of the camera until this summer, that means it won’t be with us until 2018, at the earliest. Though knowing how director James Cameron works, it may be 2019 or 2020 before it actually hits theaters. Even Sigourney Weaver is doubtful that we’ll see it next year.

Avatar 2 is definitely coming though, and so is Avatar 3, 4 and 5, with Cameron hard at work on the entire series. Last we heard, the director said that he’d finally finished with all of the scripts and is now starting “active prep.” While it’s encouraging »

While Marvel hasn’t had the best luck with their television shows on ABC, the studio’s efforts on Netflix are an entirely different story. Starting with Daredevil back in 2015, it’s been one hit after another for them on the streaming service, with the street-level heroes proving to be immediate fan-favorites. There’s still one more character left to get his own series, and that’s Iron Fist. That will soon be rectified though as Danny Rand will punch his way onto Netflix next month, at which point all eyes will then turn towards The Defenders.

Currently shooting in NYC, the miniseries will bring together Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Iron Fist as they unite to face off against Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra. It’s a showdown that’s set to be suitably epic, »
