'Resident Evil 6': Ali Larter Returns as Claire Redfield

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production scheduled to begin next month in South Africa, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has brought in Ali Larter to portray Claire Redfield. This final installment of the Resident Evil franchise will be Ali Larter's third time portraying Claire Redfield, following 2007's Resident Evil: Extinction and 2010's Resident Evil: Afterlife. Milla Jovovich is coming back as Alice, but no other cast members have been officially confirmed at this point.

Production on this sequel has been delayed a few times, following the 2012 release of Resident Evil: Retribution. Filming was supposed to begin on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in the fall of 2013, but that never came to pass. Last year, Milla Jovovich announced on her Facebook page that shooting was being pushed by one year, due to the actress' pregnancy. Production is still slated to take place in Cape Town, South Africa, which is where pre-production was taking place when the delay was announced. »

Matt Damon Is A Long Way From Home In New The Martian Screenshots

See Full Gallery Here

Seeing Matt Damon in an astronaut suit may evoke bad memories for Interstellar fans, but forget Dr. Mann, for in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-tipped space oddity The Martian, the actor is playing an intrepid explorer cast astray on the Red Planet.

With no option but to “science the shit” out of his surrounding supplies, Damon’s lone astronaut is forced to carry out a mini-terraforming mission, growing food on a hostile environment that is designed for anything but. First off, his Mark Watney will be forced to send out an Sos signal from the sun-scorched planet, before hunkering down for a gruelling 4 years as the Ares 3 crew return for the man they left behind.

Lifted from the pages of Andy Weir’s eponymous best-seller, there’s already tremendous amount of buzz surrounding The Martian following its spine-chilling first trailer. With a cast that includes Jessica Chastain, »

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, Nasa and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. »

Watch the original Pixels short film

25 July 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of Adam Sandler’s 80s arcade game actioneer Pixels this week (to less than stellar reviews – read Robert Kojder’s ★ ★ one here), it might be a good time to rewatch the original short film on which it’s based.

“But it’s a Futurama episode!” you cry. Yes. Yes, it is. 2002’s Season 3 episode 18 ‘Anthology of Interest II‘, to be precise. But Sander’s Happy Madison Productions’ direct inspiration was the below 2010 film, directed by Patrick Jean. And at a lean 2 minutes 35 seconds, it sounds a lot more bearable than the feature-length adaptation. Check it out…

Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) and stars Adam Sandler (Grown Ups 2), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), Jane Krakowski (30 Rock), Michelle Monaghan (Playing it Cool), Sean Bean (Jupiter Ascending), Josh Gad (Frozen) and Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity »

Marvel vs. Pixels: Weekend Box Office Will Be Fight to the Death Between Sandler Critical Dud and Ant-Man Rudd

24 July 2015 11:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People., for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

The King of Kong: Columbus Peddles Dopey Sandler Comedy

Hailing from some parallel universe where Never Never Land must be the capital is Pixels, a Chris Columbus directed Adam Sandler comedy pasted together by his usual writer, Tim Herlihy and returning collaborator Timothy Dowling (Just Go With It, 2011). If there’s anyone to pity here, it’s Patrick Jean, the director of the 2010 short film upon which this concept is based. As far as Sandler’s handlers go, it’s uncertain who or what this feature length version is geared towards, a family friendly package severely dumbed down for the enjoyment of today’s tots yet emblazoned with obsolete video games two generations removed from the only audience members unoffended by the laziness and stupidity of the final product. Though some supporting players escape less scathed by this misbegotten lump of a film, Sandler and co. seem tone deaf »

Ridley Scott set to direct The Cartel, Leonardo DiCaprio linked to lead

24 July 2015 5:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

20th Century Fox and director Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings) are set to continue their long association with an adaptation of acclaimed novel The Cartel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The novel, written by Don Winslow, offers “a fictional take on the notorious Sinaloa drug boss whose daring July 18 escape from a Mexican prison dominated international news headlines.” Scott will direct the film and also produce through his production company Scott Free Films. Shane Salerno (Armageddon) is set to write the scrip.

In addition to the news of Scott’s involvement, Deadline is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio may be in the running to take on the film’s lead role. No official word on any casting has been forthcoming, but if the deal is closed it would become DiCaprio’s second collaboration with Scott after Body of Lies.

Ridley Scott’s next film, sci-fi thriller The Martian, is released this Autumn, »

Film Review: Instead of Geeky Greatness, Adam Sandler Sucks the Soul Out of a Badly Miscast ‘Pixels’

23 July 2015 9:58 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – The epitome of an idea that far outweighs its execution, “Pixels” is a bittersweet blunder that had all of the elements to be geeky great but ends up being cheesy mediocre. I could literally feel its potential for 105 minutes, but the $88 million film ultimately fails to realize it.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

At the heart of the issue is miscasting and specifically Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions. Even though he and his production company let me down in the critically panned “The Hot Chick,” “50 First Dates,” “The Longest Yard,” “The Benchwarmers,” “Click,” “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry” and on and on, I honestly always give Sandler a chance even though his humor almost never works for me.

Despite my love for Pac-man, I was disappointed going into “Pixels” to see Sandler in such a lead role with his production company attached and his pals making bank with him. Still, I »

'Pixels' (2015) Movie Review

23 July 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Even as an Adam Sandler/Kevin James-vehicle, Pixels deserves to be more inspired. The arcade-loving, '80s-centric action-comedy transitioned to the big screen from Patrick Jean's inventive world-domination-by-8-bits short film wields the fine set pieces, tech resources and token-required games to earn a top score. But Sandler and his team don't even attempt to advance to the next level, constantly drawing on the comedian's trademark sophomoric cheat codes to hastily produce what's essentially the poor man's Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, global-annihilation movie. Make no mistake: this is a Happy Madison production through-and-through. Minus extensive pratfall jokes with James or unnecessary Rob Schneider or Steve Buscemi pop-ups, almost every check mark from the Sandler production list is marked. Cheap insults directed towards one physical trait from different supporting charactersc Check. Sandler getting the out-of-his-league girl (in this case, Michelle Monaghan) because he's our main slubby do-gooderc You bet. »

Sharknado 3 Killed George R.R. Martin Game of Thrones-Style and It Was Epic

23 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The night is dark and full of...sharks?! The founder of Westeros found himself under attack on Wednesday night and we loved every single ridiculous second of it. Game of Thrones fans who tuned in for Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! were in for a surprise when George R.R. Martin, the author behind the epic series, became one of the Syfy hit movie's famous casualties. In what we totally believe was a nod to how Ned Stark (Sean Bean), may he rest in peace, died in season one, Martin's head was bitten off by a shark in a movie theater. We also totally believe it was payback for the death of (Spoiler Alert!) Jon Snow (Kit Harington).  So how was Sharknado able to land a cameo from Martin, who is busy »

Film Review: ‘Pixels’

22 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An adorable life-sized version of Q*bert is easily the most engaging character in “Pixels,” a dimwitted ’80s nostalgia trip best appreciated by those who have waited years for Adam Sandler’s fine-grained intelligence and Chris Columbus’ filmmaking mastery to finally converge. For the remaining 99% of the moviegoing population, this slapdash, casually sexist revenge-of-the-nerds fantasy offers some mild visual distraction with its massive CGI renderings of Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and other old-school videogame characters that have been co-opted here by malevolent space invaders, challenging Earth to the mother of all intergalactic arcade battles. Commercially, the somewhat novel combination of Sandler’s bro-comedy antics and an unexpected dose of geek appeal should help Sony’s July 24 Stateside release enjoy a few late-summer bonus rounds at the box office, aided by strong awareness and 3D ticket premiums.

Commercial returns should remain steady even if word-of-mouth reactions fail to rise much above the level of “Well, »

22 best and worst Bond theme songs ranked: Every single's here, but which are classics and which need their 00 status revoked?

20 July 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

According to Spectre director Sam Mendes, we'll soon find out who'll be joining the illustrious ranks of Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney and Rita Coolidge (!) in belting out a James Bond theme.

To mark the occasion, we've gone back through every single 007 song to find out which ones are earworms and which need their 00 status revoked. A quick point to note: we've discounted instrumentals so the opening credits pieces from Dr No and On Her Majesty's Secret Service are not on the list.

22. 'Another Way to Die' - Jack White & Alicia Keys (2008)

The first and only duet in the entire Bond theme back catalogue, on paper this sounded great but what emerged was a sludgy, lifeless and unremarkable track that went in one ear and out the other.

Adam Sandler discusses The Ridiculous 6 controversy

20 July 2015 4:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Speaking to The Associated Press (via The Hollywood Reporter), Adam Sandler has addressed the controversy on the set of his latest film, The Ridiculous 6, which is the comedian’s first venture with Netflix.

At the premiere of his new film Pixels, Sandler was asked about the Native American actors who walked off the set of Ridiculous 6 in April due to the offensive content of the film to their culture. Some actors were reportedly upset over the names of some of the characters, as well as a scene where a Native American woman smokes a peace pipe while urinating.

“It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out will be cleared up,” Sandler said over the weekend, while also saying the film was “100 percent pro-American Indian”.

The Ridiculous Six is a spoof-comedy which pokes fun at the Western genre, including the classic The Magnificent Seven.

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Isaac Hempstead-Wright Returning for Season 6

14 July 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At least one fan favorite character is returning to “Game of Thrones.”

Isaac Hempstead-Wright, whose Bran Stark sat last season out, confirmed that he would be returning to the hugely popular HBO series for season 6.

“I can’t say a lot, but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran … he has some interesting visions,” the actor told the Irish Examiner.

Bran Stark, who is one of the youngest of the children of Ned Stark (Sean Bean) and Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley), has not been seen in the series since the end of season four. Most of the characters thought he was dead, although viewers knew that he was actually holed up away from the main action and is presumably developing his warging abilities (i.e. the power to enter the mind of an animal and control its actions).

Maisie Williams' Pick for the Worst Game of Thrones Death Ever May Surprise You

Spoiler alert! But actually, more like shame alert for not being up to date on Game of Thrones, because...really?! Get. On. That. We never thought Game of Thrones could break our hearts more than when Ned Stark (Sean Bean) was brutally decapitated in season one. Or when that terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Red Wedding made us cry all the tears. But then George R. R. Martin and the HBO fantasy series had to go one step further and completely crush us and leave us empty shells of human beings by the time the season five finale ended...when Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was betrayed by his own Night's Watch brothers and stabbed over and over again and left to die in the snow. Nooooo! But if you ask Game of »
