10 Male Actors In Drag Who Will Sexually Confuse You

16 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Buena Vista Pictures

It’s pretty easy to spot a man in drag. That’s probably because they don’t impersonate females: they wear eight-inch heels, wigs the size of a small planet, and dresses so tight they stop blood circulating. How many women do you see walking round town like that?

We’re not saying that the actors in this list could pull it off as full-on females in the public eye (although a few of them definitely could), what we’re saying is that they defy all logic in terms of how we perceive male and female: they mix them both and look absolutely ravishing in doing so. Who can deny that Rocky Horror’s Frank-n-Furter didn’t give you rude thoughts, even if they made you uneasy? Yes, that goes for men and women. There’s something about the crazy, overt sexuality of these guys that make »

For a film that primarily focuses on an astronaut (Matt Damon) who is stranded in a colony on Mars and struggles to survive, hoping he can last long enough for Nasa to organize a rescue mission, there sure seems to be a lot of supporting cast members signing on to The Martian.

Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sebastian Stan And Mackenzie Davis Join Ridley Scott’s The Martian

23 October 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar won’t be split into two parts, we’ll be seeing another starry adventure careen into orbit roughly one year later. Based on the e-book by Andy Weir, Ridley Scott’s exploratory disaster pic, The Martian, will land in November 2015 with just as impressive an ensemble. As production is gearing up to commence soon, we’ve another round of additions to what’s becoming quite the boastful cast.

Headlining the pic is Matt Damon, who’ll be playing astronaut Mark Watney. After a severe storm rattles his crew during a Mars exploration mission, they abandon him after mistakenly believing him to be dead. The supporting cast, some of whom will take to the red planet with Damon, include Jeff Daniels, Sean Bean, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena and Donald Glover. How starry can you get? As it turns out – a lot more. »

Edge Of Tomorrow: a case of mishandled marketing?

22 October 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sci-fi action thriller Edge Of Tomorrow sagged at the box office, despite glowing reviews. Was its marketing to blame, Ryan wonders...

Looking back over Edge Of Tomorrow’s brief history, and it seems clear that it was a production with something of an identity crisis. Adapted from a Japanese story called All You Need Is Kill, the movie went by that name right up until the summer of 2013, when Warner Bros abruptly changed the title to Edge Of Tomorrow.

Then, when Edge Of Tomorrow got its home release a couple of weeks ago, it seemed to have been given another name change. On its DVD and Blu-ray box, the tagline Live. Die. Repeat, is far more prominent than Edge Of Tomorrow’s title - the movie’s even listed in some online marketplaces as Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow.

It’s the latest curious development in the life of »

Sean Bean Probably Won't Die in Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi 'The Martian'

21 October 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: After dying in nearly everything that's he's starred in, it sounds like Sean Bean is poised to survive a feature film. THR has word that the Lord of the Rings and National Treasure star has landed a role in The Martian, the next sci-fi drama from Alien director Ridley Scott. The film follows an astronaut (Damon) who is stranded in a Martian colony and struggles to survive, hoping he can last long enough for Nasa to organize a rescue mission. Bean will play a Nasa flight director, presumably back on Earth, trying to sort things out. Bean joins an interesting assembly of talent that includes Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig and Donald Glover. The film arrives on November 25th, 2015. »

Casting: Patrick Stewart Plays White Supremacist In 'Green Room,' Natalie Dormer Goest To 'The Forest' And More

21 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With "Blue Ruin," writer/director Jeremy Saulnier made some major noise, which apparently reached the ears of some notable folks. Patrick StewartAnton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Mark Webber, Kai Lennox, Eric Edelstein and Macon Blair will star in his next movie "Green Room," which is now shooting. And the premise is intense. The movie will follow a young punk rock band who find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, and must fight for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses. And in the kind of role we've never seen him in, Stewart will play Darcy Banker, the unflinching leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest. Holy shit. The news was first broken by The Wrap. Ridley Scott's "The Martian" cast keeps growing with Sean Bean joining Matt Damon, »

Sean Bean Boards The Martian

21 October 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

He’s been skewed by arrows in Middle Earth, beheaded in Westeros and drawn and quartered in medieval England, but do you know where Sean Bean hasn’t met a sticky end yet? That’s right – space. Alas, even the final frontier may end up as a resting place for the oft-killed actor now that he’s joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s The Martian.

Bean will reportedly play a Nasa flight director in the survival adventure, which was adapted from Andy Weir’s book of the same name by The Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard. Though some of you may be wondering just how Bean’s character will wind up perishing given that he’s safely back on Earth, rest assured the actor will find a way. After all, he has a reputation to protect.

All jesting aside, word has it that, in a refreshing change of pace, »

Sean Bean Joins Ridley Scott's The Martian

21 October 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Exodus: Gods and Kings hitting the big screen in November, Ridley Scott has turned his attention to his next movie, The Martian, based Andy Wier's 2012 e-book about an astronaut stranded on Mars after the first manned space mission to the Red Planet goes disastrously wrong. Matt Damon is taking the lead as stranded astronaut Mark Watney, with Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig, and Jessica Chastain providing support. Now this impressive cast has grown by one, with Sean Bean signing on the dotted line to appear in the movie, marking this as his third space tinged movie in a row after The Wachowski's Jupiter Rising and the Adam Sandler starring Pixels. No doubt the "Don't Kill Sean Bean" memes will be out in force as The Martian gets closer to its release date. The Martian is expected to hit U.S. cinemas on November 25th 2015, while taking a bow »
