Cover Sheet Of Ridley Scott’s The Martian Script Has Been To Space

19 December 2014 2:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In perhaps the coolest, nerdiest spot of interstellar marketing, the front page of The Martian‘s script made its way onto a Nasa spacecraft earlier this month. Per Empire, the title page from Drew Goddard’s screenplay was included in a capsule for the maiden trek of Nasa’s Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (Mpcv). The mission, which took off on December 5th, saw the craft shoot up 5600 miles above Earth for its four-and-a-half hour journey.

The film’s executive producer, Aditya Sood, revealed why exactly the page was involved:

“Nasa really rolled out the red carpet for us. In the capsule they had some personal objects that were important to people involved in the Orion project and one of the things was Ridley’s drawing on the cover page of The Martian script. This is a movie about people who are really passionate about science and space-travel, so that was »

Ridley Scott Sends 'The Martian' Script Page Into Space

19 December 2014 11:23 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In what may seem like an odd story, director Ridley Scott has sent the screenplay title page of his latest project The Martian into space. The page was taken for a ride on the maiden voyage of Nasa's Orion Spacecraft, and included a drawing from the director himself depicting star Matt Damon as the title character. The page was taken from the original draft by Drew Goddard.

The title page features Matt Damon's stranded astronaut declaring: "I'll science the shit out of this planet." Which is an actual line from the book upon which the movie is based. The script page took flight on December 5, and embarked on a four and a half hour orbit 5600 miles above the Earth's surface. About the event, producer Aditya Sood stated:

17 December 2014 12:21 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve been keeping a distant eye on the progress of Pixels for nearly five years now and, no, that doesn’t make me better – It makes me a little obsessive – but it’s still looking like a lot of fun.

Although Pixels doesn’t hit UK cinemas until August 2015, we’ve got a moving set of banners and then scroll down for a closer look. The film stars Peter Dinklage, Sean Bean, Michelle Monaghan and Adam Sandler, and tells the story of videogame experts, recruited by the military to fight 1980s-era video game characters who have attacked New York – Oh yes.

Check it out below and also click here for the previous look at the team.

Pixels opens in the UK next August, 2015. »

The 9 best moments from the Lord of the Rings trilogy

14 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies now out in UK cinemas, we have spent this weekend feeling very, very nostalgic about the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

It's not just that this sixth film marks the end of Peter Jackson's Middle-earth series (at least until the five-part Silmarillion adaptation is announced). It's the fact that Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens worked so many glorious Rings references into the script for Battle of the Five Armies, including one in particular which we won't spoil, but has kept us smiling for the last fortnight.

So without further ado, here are our nine favourite moments from the Rings trilogy in chronological order. For the purposes of this list, we used the theatrical cuts rather than the extended editions.

1. The Nazgul attack at Weathertop

A genuinely chilling moment that recalls Jackson's horror movie pedigree, this early set piece sees Frodo, »

Jupiter Ascending - TV Spot and Four Character Posters

13 December 2014 9:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I have a feeling Jupiter Ascending is going to be one of those big budget movies that is going to crash and burn at the box office. I hate to say that because for the most part I enjoy the movies the Wachowskis have made. This marketing for this movie just isn’t doing it for me. I’m sure it’s going to look beautiful up on the big screen, but what I know of the story hasn’t grabbed me. 

We have an extended TV spot and four new character poster for the movie featuring the main stars of the film, Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, and Eddie Redmayne.

Redmayne, Tatum & Kunis Star In ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Banners & Extended TV Spot

12 December 2014 2:37 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Wachowski’s may have had their Jupiter Ascending moved across to 2015, opening from 6th February, but there’s still a lot of interest around their next creation and rightly so. Today we’ve got four new character posters celebrating the cast of Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne and the mighty Blade, Sean Bean.

I don’t think we’ve got too much to worry about regarding that initial delay as it seems the effects are huge on this one and there was a lot more work to do than we expected. The film looks pretty good, check out the trailer, and something a little different as it centres around Jupiter Jones (Kunis) who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things.

'Jupiter Ascending' Extended TV Spot Starring Mila Kunis

12 December 2014 7:06 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Originally set to be released this past summer, Wachowski fans have had to patiently wait almost a whole other year for Jupiter Ascending to hit theaters. In that time, so many trailers and sneak peeks have been released that it would be easy to assume that the film has already come and gone. Warner Bros. in the midst of changing that mindset, and today they have released yet another look at this epic sci-fi adventure with an extended TV spot.

Jupiter Ascending is an old fashion throwback to the sci-fi novels of yesteryear.

BBC Shows Getting Theme Park Treatment; ‘Waterloo’ Revisited; More Global Showbiz Briefs

11 December 2014 10:10 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Is a Sherlock theme park attraction afoot? BBC Worldwide has entered a deal with London Resort Company Holdings to feature the broadcaster’s properties at a new park to be built in north Kent. The park, the London Paramount Entertainment Resort, promises to “combine the glamour of Hollywood with the best of British culture,” The Guardian reported. Since the park will look to attract tourists in the UK, it’s thought the most international of the BBC programs will feature as rides and attractions including Sherlock, Doctor Who and Top Gear. However, the park isn’t expected to open until Easter 2020. “We’re always looking for opportunities to extend fans’ enjoyment of their favorite shows, and the idea behind this resort is a really exciting way of celebrating the very special place the BBC has in British culture,” said Stephen Davies, Director of Live Events at BBC Worldwide.

New Jupiter Ascending Character Posters for Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne and Sean Bean

11 December 2014 1:30 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new batch of character posters for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending just surfaced and while they aren’t great, they are far better than the last set.  This time around we’ve got designs for Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, Channing Tatum as Caine and ones for Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne’s characters as well.  You have to look pretty closely to catch this, but while three of the posters have the Jupiter Ascending hashtag on them, Bean's has this URL printed on it - cwastronomers.org.  There isn’t much doing on the site right now, but that will likely change big time leading up to the release, so better keep an eye on it. Hit the jump to check out all four Jupiter Ascending character posters.  The film is scheduled to arrive in theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on February 6, 2015.  It also stars Douglas Booth, »

New Jupiter Ascending character posters include a bewildered Sean Bean

11 December 2014 1:26 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Lana and Andy Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending got a big release date shove earlier this year so now it's starting up the marketing again it looks like with some cool new posters. The designs include Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, Channing Tatum as Caine, Eddie Redmayne, and Sean Bean. Bean's poster stands out as the obvious miss; that facial expression, unless his character is very dim, doesn't suit the material. I could be wrong though, maybe that "I just heard a noise" looks plays a »

Sean Bean has been announced to present a Battle of Waterloo documentary for History.

The Game of Thrones actor will be fronting the two-hour special, airing on the 200th anniversary of the battle in June 2015.

Bean will also work with a team of soldiers and experts in testing the weapons and tactics that shaped the outcome of the battle.
