The list of names that'll be in the credits for Hail, Caesar! is, to put it mildly, ridiculous. Josh Brolin George Clooney Scarlett Johansson Channing Tatum Ralph Fiennes Jonah Hill Tild Swinton David Krumholtz Frances McDormand Clancy Brown Fisher Stevens Robert Picardo Alden Ehrenreich Alex Karpovsky Dolph Lundgren Oh, and there'll be those written and directed by credits for Joel and Ethan Coen.

We're sure we don't have to say anything else at this point. Either you're already sold by this project or you're not, and if you are not, we assume it's because you just arrived on this planet and you don't know who any of those people are and why seeing all of those names in the same place is so exciting. But should you happen to...

"We have your movie star. Gather $100,000 and await instructions. Who are we? The Future."While the Coen Brothers actually have a film dropping in the cinema this month, as they have writing credit on Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies, it is safe to say that there will be no dancing sailors, or George Clooney looking pompous and dopey. The trailer looks like a return to the meat and potatoes Coen Joint, where there is an ensemble cast, a kidnapping, and a metric tonne of shenanigans. We're firmly in Raising Arizona or The Big Lebowski territory here. But with the added period elements of a 1950s movie studio, which offers two films within the film, the eponymous "Hail, Caesar!" (look for Clancy Brown as Clooney's co-star)...

The Coen Brothers are continuing their usual pattern of following a serious drama with a bawdy comedy. This time their follow-up to "Inside Llewyn Davis" is the Hollywood caper film "Hail Caesar!" which, not unexpectedly, boasts a massive cast and looks just downright spectacular.
Set during the golden age of Hollywood when the big studio systems fiercely protected their stars, Josh Brolin plays a private detective turned movie company fixer who tracks down and covers up scandals among contracted players and directors.
His most recent cast involves the disappearance of a big-time actor (George Clooney) mid-way through a shoot. Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Alden Ehrenreich, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Clancy Brown, Christopher Lambert, Robert Picardo and Dolph Lundgren also star in the film which opens February 5th.

The Hudsucker Proxy followed Barton Fink; Burn After Reading followed No Country For Old Men; and continuing that trend of a serious film followed by a fun one, The Coen Brothers' next after the low-key Inside Llewyn Davis is Hollywood kidnap caper Hail Caesar!. They've assembled a stellar cast of favourite collaborators and Coen newbies for this one, and the first trailer has just arrived.Set during one of the golden ages of the big studio system, the film is focused on private detective turned movie company fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), who tracks down and covers up scandals among contracted players and directors. His current case involves him digging into the mysterious disappearance of a big star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) mid-way through a shoot.Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Clancy Brown, Christopher Lambert, Robert Picardo and Dolph Lundgren (no, really) are »

In this timely thriller, when single father Dennis Nash (Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield) is evicted from his home, his only chance to win it back is to work for Rick Carver (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon), the ruthless businessman who evicted him in the first place.
It’s a deal-with-the-devil that may save his family home; but as Nash falls deeper into Carver’s web, he finds his situation grows more brutal and dangerous than he ever imagined.
99 Homes opens in St. Louis on October 9.
Wamg invites you to enter for a chance to win a pass (Good for 2) to the advance screening of 99 Homes on Tuesday, October 6th at 7Pm in the St. Louis area.

Not so much entertaining as it is enraging, 99 Homes gets in your face with the injustices suffered by countless hardworking people in the global financial crisis.
Michael Shannon is just the man to represent the stone-cold face of capitalism as a property developer who cashes in on others' misfortunes, while Andrew Garfield is a young father who could go either way when offered the chance to sell his soul.
This would be box office poison were it not for these two fine performances, constructed in layers (before being stripped to their bare bones), so that neither man is wholly good, or evil. Shannon, however, has the tougher job to convey some sort of humanity as Rick Carver, after a brazen opening scene that finds him resolutely unmoved by the suicide of a man he was about to evict.
Carver acts on behalf of a bank that is foreclosing on mortgage »
Just yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter published an in-depth piece that shed some light on the business relationship between Universal, Legendary and Warner Bros., offering up all number of findings including the fact that the latter two studios are ruminating on a King Kong V Godzilla mash-up along with news that Pacific Rim: Maelstrom has been delayed indefinitely.
Indeed, Guillermo del Toro’s creature feature is no longer a sure-thing, but it isn’t the only CG-heavy blockbuster that allegedly has Universal concerned. Among the discussion of high-profile reboots and potential trilogies, THR’s report suggests that the studio considers Duncan Jones’ Warcraft to be a “problem movie,” lumping the director’s live-action take on Azeroth in with Zhang Yimou’s The Great Wall.

Taking to Twitter, Jones himself offered a response to the allegation, asking fans not to worry about the label. After all, Universal »

When The Hollywood Reporter announced yesterday that Pacific Rim 2: Maelstrom was on “indefinite hold”, they said that Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. saw Warcraft was one of the reasons. They also noted that the film based on the best-selling game was a, “problem movie”. However it’s director, Duncan Jones, has jumped to the film’s defense.
Check out the tweet below:
@Clawx I wouldn’t worry about that. Universal moved us to the same date as Jurassic World, so we must have done something right!
— Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) September 16, 2015
It should be noted that Warner Bros. and Legendary probably don’t see Warcraft as a “problem movie” because of its quality, but more likely because it’s a video game movie which have not had much success in the past. Recently, Hitman: Agent 47 stalled at the box office with only $21 million domestically. And with a huge budget »

The year that gave us Gremlins, Ghostbusters and The Temple Of Doom also gave us these 20 underappreciated movies...
It's been said that 1984 was a vintage year for movies, and looking back, it's easy to see why. The likes of Ghostbusters and Gremlins served up comedy, action and the macabre in equal measure. James Cameron's The Terminator cemented Arnold Schwarzenegger's star status and gave us one of the greatest sci-fi action movies of the decade.
This was also the year where the Coen brothers made their screen debut with the stunning thriller Blood Simple, and when the Zucker brothers followed up Airplane! with the equally hilarious Top Secret! And we still haven't even mentioned Beverly Hills Cop, This Is Spinal Tap, The Karate Kid, Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom and the unexpectedly successful romantic comedy, Splash. Then there was Milos Forman's sumptuous period drama Amadeus, which »
As the days get darker and the cold winds of Autumn approach, it’s time to look ahead at the upcoming movies set to hit cinemas this Fall.
The huge slate includes the return of the Jedis, the rebirth of Frankenstein and a new age of Good Dinosaurs. These movies will take audiences to a Galaxy Far, Far Away, on a voyage to Mars and to the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest.
Here’s our list of the 2015 Fall movies that we can’t wait to see!
The Visit (Sept 11)
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable) and producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series) welcome you to Universal Pictures’ The Visit.

Part of the first trailer for the Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) directed Warcraft movie has leaked online, and you can check it out above. As you’d expect, the footage is full of orcs and humans engaged in battle, and even in this low-quality version, some of the shots look pretty damn impressive.
The Sdcc footage that leaked a while back was criticized for being (or rather, looking) far too CGI-heavy, but seeing some of the human characters integrated into the fantasy surroundings here does make things seem a little more… well, real. While this is only a small tease of what’s to come, it’s certainly a tantalizing one.

Based on the hit online video game World of Warcraft, Warcraft has been shrouded in secrecy for a long time, but the leaked footage below gives us our first look at the movie. It's very CGI heavy, but looks pretty cool nonetheless. What it below before it's gone! Fighting for The Alliance, Warcraft features Dominic Cooper as King Llane Wrynn, Travis Fimmel as Anduin Lothar, Ben Foster as Medivh, Ben Schnetzer as Khadgar, and Ruth Negga as Lady Taria, and on the side of The Horde is also Clancy Brown as Blackhand, Toby Kebbel as Durotan, and Daniel Wu as Gul’Dan, with Paula Patton’s Garona apparently caught in the middle. Warcraft is set to be released on June 10th, 2016. »

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

A major character is set to return in the upcoming X-Files revival and the always awesome Clancy Brown is joining Chicago Pd.

Special Features: Four ‘making-of’ featurettes
If nautical nonsense be something you wish, then drop on the deck and flop like some sort of sea dwelling creature because The SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge Out Of Water is extremely funny. It is strange, clever, will surprise non-Squarepants fans and delight those of us who love the show. is the strangest, silliest and funniest film ever to be catapulted out of the ocean by a laser headed space dolphin. Which actually happens.
The eye-meltingly surreal imagery perfectly complements the anarchic script which sees our heroes take a trip, in every sense, through time and space in search of the missing Krabby Patty formula. En route, the movie pays tribute to Stanley Kubrick and Sergio Leone, notching up »

The man who provides the voice to Patrick Star in Spongebob Squarepants - and thus, in the recent The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water feature - is Mr Bill Fagerbakke. As Sponge Out Of Water arrives on DVD, he spared us some time for a chat. But we started with something not so fishy...
Before we get onto Spongebob, it'd be remiss of me not to bring up the Starship Troopers animated TV show that you leant your voice to. That was the only proper companion they ever really did to the film.
Yeah. That was a cool ride. It was another time I worked with Clancy Brown too. The session director was Sue Blue, and it was so much fun. It was one of the very rare times in my voiceover career where I've portrayed a 'regular »
