Exclusive Interview With Jonathan Nolan On Interstellar

31 March 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jonathan Nolan is one of the most in-demand screenwriters in Hollywood today. His first four screenplays, which he co-wrote with brother Christopher Nolan, are among the top #100 most-loved films according to the Internet Movie Database (The Prestige, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and, now, Interstellar). You could even count a fifth title in that grouping if you include his story credit for Memento, for which he received an Oscar nomination.

Still, Nolan is not just a potent creative collaborator of one of the world’s biggest directors. He has branched off to become a creative force on the small screen, too. He created the hit CBS drama Person of Interest, which draws in around 10 million viewers a week, and is also hard at work on Westworld, an HBO sci-fi drama set to air later this year based on Michael Crichton’s novel. With an ensemble cast including Anthony Hopkins, »

Celebrating cinema's 15 less famous killer robots

30 March 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Never mind The Terminator and Ed-209, what about Eve, Hector or Warbeast? Here's a pick of 15 less famous killer robots from the movies...

"They say Zapp Brannigan single-handedly saved the Octillion system from a horde of rampaging killbots!" enthused Leela in classic the Futurama episode, Love's Labour's Lost In Space.

It was, reflected the alcoholic, cigar-smoking robot Bender, "A grim day for Robotkind", before adding as an afterthought, "Eh, but we can always build more killbots."

Killer robots are a longstanding staple of science fiction cinema, and if we were to compile the list of the best and most celebrated, it would probably read pretty much like everyone else's - The Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Sentinels from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would all get a mention.

But what about the less famous killer robots from film history - the ones that have been largely eclipsed by »

'Jurassic World' TV Spot: The Park Is Open!

30 March 2015 12:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A deadly new dinosaur is killing for sport in the new TV spot for Jurassic World. The video was shown during tonight's season finale of AMC's hit zombie series The Walking Dead. While Jurassic World will not feature any zombies, it will showcase dinosaurs fans have never seen before in the first three Jurassic Park movies.

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly. The ensemble cast includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, Jake Johnson, Judy Greer and original Jurassic Park star B.D. Wong.

19 March 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

This June, Jurassic World is set to welcome a whole new generation of people to the famous Isla Nublar. The film features a whole new cast featuring Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard (Spider-Man 3), Vincent D'Onofrio (Daredevil), Jake Johnson (Let's Be Cops), Irrfan Khan (Life Of Pi), Nick Robinson (The Kings Of Summer), Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days Of Future Past), Brian Tee (The Wolverine), and Judy Greer (Ant-Man) in key roles led by director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed).  When it was announced the film would be set in the original universe created by Steven Spielberg & Michael Crichton in 1993, many fans were hoping to see a few Jurassic Park alums show up in the upcoming sequel, but unfortunately, unless they show up in surprise cameos, Jurassic Park stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum aren't expected to be back.

Castle Recap: Good, Better, Beckett

16 March 2015 8:46 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week on ABC’s Castle, the arrival of a hot-shot supercop from Hong Kong amped up Beckett’s insecurities about what she has accomplished and where she’s heading in her career. In the end, was Kate truly feeling less great?

RelatedMatt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Castle and More!

I know the premise of this episode, on paper and as teased by David Amann, had some on edge, worried that it’d weaken Beckett. That it’d knock her down a peg in the name of building up this peer, Chief Inspector Zhang (played by Enterprise‘s Linda Park).

Steven Spielberg Wants To Direct Chris Pratt As Indiana Jones

21 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As I understand it, Disney’s plans to reboot Indiana Jones are incredibly basic. All they’ve absolutely decided on so far is “Let’s reboot Indiana Jones, someday.”

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t some experimentation going on, some daydreaming and chatting. Deadline capitalised on this a few weeks back by saying that the studio would like Chris Pratt to take the lead role and replace Harrison Ford. I’m sure they would, but there’s a lot to be done before Pratt would have a real offer to consider.

In their follow-up report, Deadline say that Steven Spielberg would like to direct the film. It’s no surprise – he’s proud of the series, and does feel some ownership. Moreso than, say, Jurassic Park, which was an adaptation of the novel by Michael Crichton.

It bears repeating that there’s an awful lot of work done »

Fortitude, Ep. 1.03: “Episode Three” focuses more on the murder mystery

15 February 2015 9:42 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fortitude, Season One, “Episode Three”

Written by Simon Donald

Directed by Sam Miller

Airs Thursdays at 10 pm (Et) on Pivot

Fortitude‘s nebulous two-part pilot promised mysteries on a cosmic scale; by offering sparse dialogue and dreamy imagery wreathed by the pristine whiteness magnanimous snow, creator Simon Donald and director Sam Miller seemed to be crafting a show more concerned with the ineffable than with cops and clues. Instead of establishing suspects and motive, excavating the nefarious underground ties that bind a small town, and strewing about red herrings, they suffused the frame with chilly melancholy. The serenity of a vast ice tundra is juxtaposed with the imminent dangers lurking above and below the permafrost. Fortitude has shades of The Killing‘s caustic theatrics and Donald’s Low Winter Sun, but none of the former’s genre-blind pretension. It’s serious not just in content but in form: any show »

Trailer Trashin': Super Bowl Xlix Movie Spot Roundup

4 February 2015 8:24 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Another Super Bowl has come and gone – my congratulations to the New England Patriots, and my sympathies to the Seattle Seahawks. But for cinephiles like me, the main draw of the Big Game is the new TV spots for upcoming movies. This year, there were a staggering fourteen movie spots shown during Super Bowl Xlix, and in this edition of Trailer Trashin’, I’ll give you my quick takes on some of them.

 Avengers: Age of Ultron

Premise: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats to humanity, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. But the plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the real enemy and sets out to eradicate them from the Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans »

While not too many of us can afford a ticket to the real Jurassic World, we can keep an eye on the popular attraction with the newly launched Park Cam, which offers a live view of the day to day ongoings of this Dinosaur concentration camp for those rich enough to visit.

The Definitive Movies of 1995

30 January 2015 8:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1990′s introduced the world to Quentin Tarantino, saw the creation of the Nc-17 rating, and began the slow call toward fully computer animated films. It began the slow (still slow) movement toward a more diverse industry, with the first African-American director earning an Oscar nomination (John Singleton for “Boyz in the Hood”). And the year after one of the greatest years in the history of film, 1995 came plodding along, trying to keep up. So, for the first definitive list of 2015, we are going to look back 20 years at a year that, at first glance, doesn’t look so hot. It’s ripe with flops, but it’s also full of debuts, trailblazing beginnings, and better films than it gets credit for. But, the caveat still stands: this is not a “best of” list. In fact, there are a lot of bad movies on this list. But, they are movies that made a cultural impact, »

Jonathan Nolan Says ‘Westworld’ HBO Series Will Exploit Our Technological Anxieties

27 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The upcoming HBO series Westworld is one we can’t wait to see. The show uses Michael Crichton‘s original film as a starting point — it provides the concept of an amusement park for adults that is staffed by automatons, and where things break down and cause some very big problems.
