The Many Faces Of Zhou Xun

3 hours ago | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

This week, Pang Ho Cheung's Chinese film Women Who Flirt will be released in the Us, a modern romantic comedy starring actress Zhou Xun (and you can check the trailer at this link). I try never to judge an actress just by her looks, and with Zhou Xun I thankfully don't have to. Almost unearthly though her beauty is, she is also a mighty fine actress, and perfectly capable of bringing quirk or tragedy into a picture. That last bit may also be the reason why her movie characters generally have the life expectancy of Sean Bean's. Anyway, once again I'm going to use seven close-ups of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images, and try to identify which...

Mila Kunis Is A Cosmic Linchpin In Stunning New Trailer For Jupiter Ascending

25 November 2014 9:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When a film receives a last-minute delay in the vein of the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending, it’s tricky for studios to market the movie all over again in the build-up to release without leaving members of the audience feeling a little jaded. Initially due to arrive during the primetime summer months, Warner Bros. pushed the space-faring adventure all the way back to February to give VFX artists adequate time to render the filmmakers’ grand, galactic vision.

And today, the studio pulled a double whammy by unveiling a new international trailer all the while releasing a selection of beautiful stills that hint at some of the locales we can expect when the film finally debuts early next year.

Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, Tuppence Middleton, Douglas Booth and Sean Bean, Jupiter Ascending tells the tale of Kunis’ everyday, earthbound girl who dreams big. Unbeknownst to her, her Jupiter »

'Jupiter Ascending' Trailer Introduces Sean Bean as Stinger

25 November 2014 9:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) learns that Earth isn't the birthplace of the human race in a new international trailer for Jupiter Ascending. This sci-fi adventure is the latest from filmmakers Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski (Cloud Atlas, The Matrix). Here, Sean Bean is introduced as Stinger in this latest footage, arriving to explain Jupiter Jones' place in this world.

From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, Jupiter Ascending tells the story of a special one, who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she is destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has »

Jupiter Ascending International Trailer Gives Us a Little More Sean Bean; Plus New Images

25 November 2014 8:08 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Perhaps this is just what happens when a movie’s release date is pushed back from July 18, 2014 to February 6, 2015 at the last minute, but I believe this new Jupiter Ascending international trailer is the film’s sixth trailer.  It’s a wonder there’s still more new material to show off, but this latest piece actually gives us more from Sean Bean’s character than ever before. Even with the abundance of promos, I can’t say I’m sold on this one just yet, but when you’ve got the Wachowskis and an incredible cast coming together to bring such strikingly unusual material to screen, that’s more than enough to get me in a theater seat.  Hit the jump to check out the new international Jupiter Ascending trailer.  The film also stars Channing Tatum, Mila KunisEddie RedmayneDouglas BoothTuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith and Doona Bae. »

Watch: New International Trailer And Images For 'Jupiter Ascending' With Channing Tatum And Mila Kunis

25 November 2014 7:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With all the awards chatter in the air, you might forget that there are special-effects-driven movie extravanganzas out there waiting for you too, and one of the most pixel-filled is the forthcoming "Jupiter Ascending." The latest from the Wachowskis, the film was originally slated to arrive this past summer, but was delayed just weeks from release. Well, it's now just a few months away, and a new international trailer has arrived. Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Tuppence Middleton, Douglas Booth and more, the fairytale-esque saga follows an ordinary young woman who turns out to be next in line to be Queen of the universe or something. So a bounty hunter, originally hired to kill her, becomes her protector, and then lots of leaping, explosions, yelling, and garish costumes start flying all over the place. So yes, it's a movie from the Watchowskis, so you'll be getting exactly what you paid for. »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Gugu Mbatha-Raw — whose name is short for Gugulethu, which is Zulu for “Our Pride” — is quickly showing her versatility as an actress portraying an 18th century aristocrat and a hip-hop star over the course of a year. Mbatha-Raw (pronounced em-bah-tah raw) has been highly praised for both roles and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Mbatha-Raw was trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and in 2009, she starred alongside Jude Law in Hamlet on Broadway.

Prior to her stint on Broadway, she appeared in various television shows and movies, including Doctor Who in 2007.

She followed her Broadway performance with roles in the 2011 film Larry Crowne, with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, and she played one half of the undercover husband-and-wife CIA team in NBC’s Undercovers. The show, executive produced by J.J. Abrams, was cancelled after 13 episodes. She also appeared in the first season of Touch, »

21 November 2014 1:15 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Jessica Chastain currently stars in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar where she plays a scientist trying to save humanity from extinction.

One year from now, Scott and Chastain, along with Matt Damon, come together in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming sci-fi film The Martian.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.”

Gotham Could Kill Off Established Characters

21 November 2014 7:29 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

According to Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller, some of the established characters in the fantastic series may not make it through the series alive. You’d think that many of these main characters from the comic universe would be safe, but when he was asked about this in an interview with EW, he offered a surprising answer. This is the question that was asked:

“Before Gotham premiered there was some discussion about how the show cannot kill any members of its cast of iconic characters, since the story is a prequel. And you had a great reply to that by saying, 'It’s sad thing if you can only generate suspense by killing people.' I’m wondering now that you’ve dug more into the season and are juggling all these characters, with some being more interesting than others, whether there’s a part of you that’s like, 'You know, »

New UK sci-fi and fantasy shows to look out for in 2015

20 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Androids, magic, parallel worlds, ghostly crime, and the apocalypse. Here’s a raft of new forthcoming UK sci-fi and fantasy TV…

There’s Doctor Who of course, which appears to be in rude health and going nowhere, a Christmas Special from Black Mirror, and a hint of new Red Dwarf on its way. (And of course, if there’s anything like justice in the world, the terrific In The Flesh will be recommissioned for a third series.)

Are Bruce Wayne's parents the most killed characters in movie history?

18 November 2014 6:34 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Walk down the wrong alleyway in Gotham City and you're in for a nasty shock. Nobody has found this out more frequently (or violently) than Thomas and Martha Wayne, the most murdered people in all of film and television history apart from Sean Bean.

This event proves to be a formative moment in the life of a young Bruce Wayne, the turning point that spurs him on to a life of fighting crime as a masked vigilante.

With the news that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will recreate this iconic Dark Knight moment, Digital Spy looks back at some of the screen recreations of that fateful Gotham night.

Batman (1989)

The first big screen depiction of the Waynes' death happened in Tim Burton's 1989 blockbuster. Here there's a twist in the tale as it's not Joe Chill but Jack Napier (later reborn as The Joker) who ambushes the millionaires.

Sean Bean to star in The Frankenstein Chronicles for ITV

17 November 2014 10:58 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Keen to see Sean Bean go toe-to-toe with one of horror's most iconic characters? Look no further than ITV's The Frankenstein Chronicles.

Exciting news, this. ITV has commissioned The Frankenstein Chronicles, a six-part horror/crime drama from Rainmark films starring the one and only Sean Bean.

It’s unclear whether the monster in this iteration will be comprised of reanimated segments of Mr Sean Bean’s many deceased screen characters. But, you know, it’s fairly unlikely.

In fact, Bean isn’t playing the monster at all, or even Doctor Frankenstein. The former Boromir and Ned Stark will portray Inspector John Marlott, the law-man tasked with investigating the strange goings-on that begin with a mutilated body washing ashore.

The Frankenstein Chronicles, set in 1827 London, was created by Benjamin Ross and Barry Lanford, who previously worked together on Stellan Skarsgård vehicle Torte Bluma.
