Meet Josh Gad’s Ludlow Lamonsoff in Pixels featurette

29 June 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past week we’ve seen a couple of character vignettes for Pixels featuring Ashley Benson’s Lady Lisa and Peter Dinklage’s Eddie ‘The Fire Blaster’ Plant, and now Sony has debuted another featurette, which introduces us to Ludlow Lamonsoff, played by Josh Gad

As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades.  Now, they’re going to have to do it for real.  In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now-u.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by Pac-man, »

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Blu-ray Review

28 June 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Tuppence Middleton, Douglas Booth | Written and Directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski

 

A rich science-fiction world, full of weird and colourful characters who still ring true despite having massive animal ears or wings, with well-defined politics, an ancient conflict and a lead couple who you can’t help but root for with all your heart.

Unfortunately I’m not talking about Jupiter Ascending but the comic Saga... Sadly for the Wachowskis, who clearly put a lot of care and affection into their latest ambitious failure, Jupiter Ascending fails miserably in all the ways Saga succeeds.

But perhaps that’s an unfair comparison; I should judge Jupiter Ascending on its own terms. Inferior similarities to the beloved (and, to be fair, firmly established) comic aside, the film still starts out with a literal boatload of movie cliches: Jupiter (Mila Kunis) is the »

10 Most Ludicrous Moments From Sense8

23 June 2015 8:56 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Netflix

Turns out The Wachowskis have still got it, whatever “it” is exactly. The directors of The Matrix trilogy are back on form – after disappointing with pretty much everything they did ever since the first Matrix, including anime adaptation Speed Racer and the racially troubling Cloud Atlas adaptation – thanks to their Netflix series Sense8. You may not have heard.

Unfortunately, a lot of the hype behind their sci-fi show has been swept aside in favour of the streaming service’s other blockbuster original series, Orange Is The New Black, which returned for its third season. There’s likely plenty more surprising plot twists and developments in that prison dramedy, but nothing that compares to the madness of Sense8.

In collaboration with Babylon 5 writer J Michael Straczynski and directors Tom Tykwer and James McTeigue, the Wachowskis’ latest project is even more out there than 2015’s Jupiter Ascending. And that’s »

Jupiter Ascending Blu-ray review

22 June 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directors: Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski

Cast: Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean, Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Certificate: 12

Special Features: Jupiter Jones: Destiny is within us / Jupiter Ascending: Genetically Spliced / The Wachowskis: Mind over Matter / Worlds within Worlds within Worlds / Bullet Time Evolved / From Earth to Jupiter 

Remember when the Wachowski’s made good films? Remember the movie defining Matrix film? Hopeful that Jupiter Ascending is a return to the glory days? Sadly it isn’t, the film having more in common with the Matrix sequels. In Jupiter Ascending the Wachowski’s seem to have tried to craft a strange hybrid of Dune and Star Wars, but failing miserably to emulate either. The story is heavily cliched and, although imaginative, fails to be engaging or interesting due to underdeveloped plot points and poorly constructed drama. There are too many different elements which fail to tie into a cohesive narrative. »

Matt Damon and Ridley Scott appear at the top of their game in early looks at “The Martian”

18 June 2015 4:14 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By now, I hope all of you have seen the downright amazing First Trailer for Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Starring Matt Damon, this potentially epic science fiction adventure has been my most anticipated film of the year ever since I learned that it had a 2015 release date. I really think this has ridiculous potential. To be fair, I’m a huge fan of the book of the same name by Andy Weir, which was one of the fastest and most compelling reads I’ve had in some time. While reading the page turner, I couldn’t help but imagine the movie version, one that could be a perfect blend of fun and intelligence. If my hunch is right this fall, we might have the rare sci-fi flick that the Academy can’t resist in The Martian. The story is pretty straightforward, at least initially…what if an astronaut was accidentally stranded on Mars? »

Czechs Present Enhanced Production Incentives to Hollywood Producers

17 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Czech Republic is making adjustments to its production incentives to make it easier for studio films and other big-budget productions to access the cash rebate.

The country offers filmmakers who shoot there a 20% rebate on the Czech production costs and 10% on above-the-line expenses. The Czech Cinematography Fund, which administers the program, has allocated approximately $49 million to 71 film and television projects that are shooting this year and next.

Ludmila Claussova, the Czech film commissioner, is meeting with studio executives and independent producers in Los Angeles this week to present the benefits of the enhanced production rebates. The Consulate General of the Czech Republic and the Czech Film Commission hosted a discussion on the topic Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

The rebate will no longer be subject to a yearly cap. Producers will be able to register at any time and immediately receive a »

Matt Damon on The Martian, Drew Goddard, Why He Took a Break from Acting, and More

17 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the many things I love about Matt Damon is his infectious charm and easy-going attitude. While he’s one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, he never acts like one. He’s always grounded and honest, willing to answer anything with a smile. Last year when Ridley Scott’s The Martian was filming in Budapest, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. If you aren’t familiar with the material, the film is based on Andy Weir’s self-published 2012 novel of the same name, and revolves around an astronaut who finds himself stranded on Mars after he is injured and presumed dead by his team. With limited resources and a finite amount of time before his oxygen runs out, Mark Watney (Matt Damon) must use the power of science to keep himself alive on the red planet and find a way to »

Jessica Chastain on The Martian, Ridley Scott’s Female Characters, Interstellar, and More

17 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I really believe Jessica Chastain works for the many-faced god from Game of Thrones. How else can you explain her amazing ability to morph into so many different characters that each feel so real and layered? In her upcoming Ridley Scott-directed sci-fi thriller The Martian, which is based on Andy Weir’s self-published 2012 novel of the same name, Chastain plays Commander Melissa Lewis, the person in charge of a mission to Mars that suffers a major setback. As you have hopefully seen in the great looking trailer, The Martian revolves around an astronaut who finds himself stranded on Mars after he is injured and presumed dead by his team. With limited resources and a finite amount of time before his oxygen runs out, Mark Watney (Matt Damon) must use the power of science to keep himself alive on the red planet and find a way to let Nasa and »

New poster, featurette and TV spot for Pixels

With E3 in full swing, it’s probably a good time for Sony to drop a new London poster, TV spot and ‘Arcade Characters’ featurette for the upcoming sci-fi comedy Pixels, which sees Adam Sandler leading a team of gamers in an effort to save the world from alien invaders who unleash iconic video game characters as weapons…

'Game of Thrones' Season 6: What Might Happen?

15 June 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday's Game of Thrones season finale, "Mother's Mercy."] Game of Thrones' season five finale shook up the game in a big way. The field of contenders for the Iron Throne has been whittled down, and fan favorite Jon Snow's (Kit Harington) watch has ended. The series is known for major shakeups, from Eddard Stark's (Sean Bean) death in season one to last year's finale murder of Tywin (Charles Dance). Sunday's finale leaves the field of contenders in more disarray than ever — and presents many key questions for season six. Who is still competing for the throne? Stannis

Watch Matt Damon Fight to Survive in 'The Martian' Trailer

9 June 2015 6:51 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Matt Damon strikes a delicate balance between intensity and levity in the new trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian, in which the actor plays Mark Watney, an astronaut trying to survive after being accidentally stranded on Mars.

As the clip shows, Watney and his Ares 3 crew are hit by a sudden, severe storm and ordered to evacuate their mission on the red planet; Watney, however, gets caught in the chaos and is left behind and presumed dead. When he wakes up alone, he returns to the Ares 3 base and »

The Martian Trailer Pits Matt Damon Against Impossible Odds

The first trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian starring Matt Damon and based on the bestselling novel of the same name by author Andy Weir has been released by Twentieth Century Fox. You can watch The Martian trailer below in high definition, though beware that it's full of spoiler and unfortunately spells out a good bit of the plot.

The Martian also stars Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff DanielsMichael Pena, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian StanAksel Hennie and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Setting aside the obvious Interstellar jokes, the story focuses on a manned mission to Mars that is cut short when a violent storm bears down on the Nasa astronauts that set up shop on the planet's surface.

In the chaos of the escape, one astronaut -- played by Damon -- is left behind and presumed dead. Only he's not dead, and now without means of contacting Nasa »

The Martian trailer: Matt Damon is stranded on Mars

8 June 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The very first trailer for Ridley Scott‘s upcoming sci-fi drama The Martian has just landed. The Martian trailer shows us the scale of Scott’s adaptation of the Andy Weir novel that was released in book stores last year.

The Martian is a book I’ve been looking to get around to reading for absolutely ages now, but I’m still to do so. The Martian trailer is very Gravity-esque, but full of your customary Scott visuals and epic scope.

It’s great to see Ridley back in space after his rather disappointing Exodus: Gods and Kings which was released at the tail end of last year.

Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Sebastian Stan, and Aksel Hennie star in the film, alongside Sean Bean, Mackenzie Davis, Donald Glover, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Jeff Daniels.

We have a detailed synopsis which you can read at the bottom of the post, »

Get lost in space with Matt Damon in the first trailer and viral video for The Martian

8 June 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ridley Scott knows how to make a space movie. Having directed such outer space classics as Alien and Prometheus, he’s proved more than once that he can handle committing the Final Frontier to film.

So it only makes sense that he’s taking on The Martian, based on the bestselling novel by Andy Weir. Starring Matt Damon as astronaut Mark Watney, the story follows a crew of Mars-bound astronauts that end up leaving Watney behind without enough supplies to last. Formally trained as a botanist, Watney has to find a way to survive until a mission can retrieve him, while the people in charge on Earth struggle to bring him home.

Featuring a star-studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Sean Bean, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, this promises to be a memorable space thriller.
