First Look: Pictures of Matt Damon in Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

4 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've grown very cautious when it comes to anticipating anything from Ridley Scott. As much as I found interest and intrigue in Prometheus, Scott just hasn't been hitting on all cylinders for some time now and even I can't argue against Prometheus naysayers and you won't find me making arguments for Exodus: Gods and Kings, The Counselor or Robin Hood. So, as much as I want to get excited about The Martian, I'm keeping my expectations in check. That said, today Empire has revealed the first pictures from the upcoming movie based on Andy Weir's 2012 e-book publication that centers on an astronaut (Matt Damon) who is stranded on a Martian colony and struggles to survive. Back on Earth, Nasa tries to mount a rescue mission. Here's the official plot: During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. »

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. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error »

Thanks to Reddit, we’ve got our first look at Matt Damon in Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi The Martian, which is based on the novel of the same name by Andy Weir and sees Damon as Mark Watney, an astronaut stranded on the red planet. Hmm. Sounds kind of familiar…

Why Going Off-Book Is Game of Thrones' Best Twist Yet

22 May 2015 2:35 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

There's always been a major divide between two factions of Game of Thrones fans: book readers vs. non-book readers. Most of the time, we exist in harmony. But sometimes, like during the Red Wedding or Purple Wedding or Ned Stark's (Sean Bean) execution, that divide becomes all too apparent. Book readers know exactly what game-changing twist is coming, whereas non-book readers live in ignorant bliss...until that moment comes, shocking us to our core. As someone who refuses to read George R. R. Martin's books until the HBO series ends a few years from now because I want to be surprised by every twist and death while watching the show, being friends with book readers has been...difficult at times, to say the »

Q*Bert, Donkey Kong And More Star In Latest Trailer For Adam Sandler’s Pixels

19 May 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What’s old is new again in the latest trailer for Chris ColumbusPixels, which sees Adam Sandler and his gang of friends witness the earth come under siege from the very video game character they grew up with.

From Donkey Kong to Q*Bert, Pac-Man to Space Invaders, the clip is as bombastic as it is nostalgic, with a hoard of extraterrestrials misinterpreting our intergalactic search for intelligent life. Now, having travelled light years to find us, the aliens declare war on humanity leaving President Will Cooper (Paul Blart: Mall Cop star Kevin James) to call upon his childhood friends in order to prevent mass extinction at the hands of, well, malevolent pixels.

And so, it isn’t long before Cooper is joined by the greatest video game champs of the ’80s, replete with all of the old stereotypes one would expect from the generation. Alongside Adam Sandler’s »

Smash More Pixels in Full-Length Trailer for Sony's 'Pixels' Movie

19 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We've never faced a threat like this before." Sony has debuted the second, full-length trailer for Pixels, the video game action adventure creation starring Adam Sandler and Kevin James and Pac-Man. It also stars Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad, and Sean Bean. After a fun teaser trailer, they finally explain more of the plot in thist railer, introducing each of the vintage arcade players who will take on these video game invaders (this does seem a bit similar to that "Futurama" episode). Pixels does look like it's going to be fun to watch, I'll give it that. I just hope the humor isn't so bad, but you never know. Enjoy! Here's the second trailer for Chris Columbus' Pixels, direct from Sony Pictures: Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) and written by Timothy Dowling (Role Models, This Means War) and Adam Sandler, »

Lord of the Rings: Where are the Fellowship of the Ring now?

18 May 2015 5:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Last week, Dominic Monaghan sent our nostalgic little hearts all aflutter when he tweeted a picture of his mini-reunion with Lord of the Rings co-stars Billy Boyd, Elijah Wood and Orlando Bloom.

With The Hobbit trilogy now concluded and Peter Jackson having theoretically said goodbye to Middle-earth forever, Monaghan's post got us thinking about the rest of the Fellowship. Below, we take a look at all nine members of the Fellowship and what they're up to today.

Elijah Wood (Frodo)

After Frodo said his goodbyes and departed for the Undying Lands (don't pretend you're not tearing up at the mere memory), Elijah Wood veered away from blockbuster lead roles in favour of an eclectic mix of indie movies comprising the great (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), the good (Everything Is Illuminated) and the ugly (Green Street).

His most memorable post-Frodo role has to be mute, cannibalistic serial killer Kevin in Frank Miller's Sin City, »

Sean Bean Still Talking Loudly About How He Was Never Jon Snow’s Dad

15 May 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Back in the summer of 2014, Sean Bean used an interview with Vulture to publicly lobby for his return to Game of Thrones, and in the process revealed his opinion on Jon Snow's true parentage. "I've definitely got some unfinished business that needs to be resolved there," he argued. "I'm obviously not Jon Snow's dad. And you need that to be revealed at some point, don't you?" When Vulture told Bean the show had been hinting that way recently,  during the Turner upfronts this week, Bean was relieved: "He’s not my child. He isn’t. That's what I suspected all along." But how does Bean see the new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch reacting to the discovery that his parents may be completely different from who he thought they were? "Probably a bit psychologically confused, I would imagine! I think that’s probably an interesting journey for »

Votd: Paul Dano gets beat up all the time

14 May 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If you’re having a bad day or your week has been feeling longer than usual, this video of Paul Dano getting repeatedly beaten up in a good number of his films might make you forget about your troubles.

This video is brought to you by YouTuber Michael Brawley who was compelled to inform the world that Paul Dano has a very punchable face. While he suffers other injuries to parts of his body in this video, many of the various characters in Paul Dano’s films really like hitting him in the face, especially Daniel Day Lewis’s memorable and horrifying Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood

While being constantly beaten up in movies might not be the most fun thing to be known for, it’s still a testament to Paul Dano’s acting chops. Not everyone can react that well to getting hit, punched, and kicked over and over again, »

25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

13 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

The Frankenstein Code: first trailer for reimagined horror

12 May 2015 1:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fox's The Frankenstein Code is the latest reimagining of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. You can get your first look here...

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is an immortal tale in more ways than one, having spawned countless imitations and reimaginings over the years. The Frankenstein Code, out next year on Fox, is the latest take to feature on American TV. Here in England, ITV are concurrently working on The Frankenstein Chronicles with Sean Bean.

Fox's version is quite a radical re-thinking - they've split the role of Dr Frankenstein into two characters (comedy actor Adhir Kalyan and Revenge's Dilshad Vadsaria, playing a brother and sister duo) and shed the iconic surname. The 'monster' is now also a retired cop (played by both Philip Baker Hall and, in his reanimated form, Rob Kazinsky of True Blood) on a quest to uncover the truth about his death.

A bit confused by all that? Well, »

Game Of Thrones: 10 Actors Whose “Acting” Is Distractingly Bad

8 May 2015 4:06 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

Right now, HBO’s insanely successful Game of Thrones is arguably the most popular show on television. But that doesn’t mean for a single minute that it’s perfect – and that goes double for one particular aspect of production that continues to come up short: the acting.

So whilst Game of Thrones is made interesting for the way in which has brought together so many renowned veterans of the stage – Charles Dance, Jonathan Pryce, Dame Diana Rigg – with such brilliantly cast actors like Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Natalie Dormer (to name but a few), it’s not all a walk around the rose gardens.

Because there are also a good number of actors on the show who are constantly bringing it down. That’s to say, there is a lot of bad acting going on in Game of Thrones, week after week, and it comes »

Review: 'Any Day' Starring Sean Bean, Eva Longoria, Kate Walsh, & Tom Arnold

3 May 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sean Bean, when will you start acting in decent films again? You’re too talented to languish in a world where “Any Day” was in any conceivable scenario the best script that came your way.

Sean Bean Joins The Wachowskis' 'Jupiter Ascending' Rustam Branaman’s ("Project Solitude") latest feature stars Bean as Vian, a boxer just released from a dozen-year stint in jail for drunkenly beating a man to death with his bare hands. With no prospects for either work or housing, he moves in with his sister (Kate Walsh) and her middle-school-aged son, Jimmy (Nolan Gross). Deeply inhaling the scent of freedom, Vian hits on the first woman he sees.
