New My Little Pony movie set for 2017

1 hour ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bronies unite: there's a new My Little Pony film on the way...

One of the films we've got queued up on our to-watch disc pile is Laurent Malaquais' documentary Bronies, which comes with the subtitle 'The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans Of My Little Pony'. And we've just picked up the 2014 documentary A Brony Tale, directed by Brent Hodge, as well.

It would be fair to say that My Little Pony geekdom is quite pronounced right now, primarily off the back of the 2010 animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. And Hasbro has been sitting up and taking notice. So much so that it's announced plans for a new My Little Pony big screen adventure, which will arrive in cinemas 21 years after My Little Pony: The Movie (which boasted the voice talents of Danny DeVito and Nancy Cartwright, no less).

The new film will be fully animated (perhaps »

How the Penguin Saved Gotham

3 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

The new series Gotham is still finding its feet and many of the cast members seem unsure of where to go with their roles. However, there is one definite bright spot in the series and that’s Robin Lord Taylor as the Penguin, who’s by far the best thing on the show.

 

The good news for Gotham fans is that the show has been expanded for additional episodes. One of the main reasons for that is Robin Lord Taylor’s scene-stealing role as Oswald Cobblepot, Aka the Penguin. These extra episodes will allow the series more time to find its footing because it’s still raw and needs to cook a bit more before it reaches its potential. In the meantime, however, Taylor’s scenes as the Penguin are always the highlight, and viewers can be carried along through the weaker points of the show by the anticipation of his scenes. »

Eddie Murphy & 'Driving Miss Daisy' Director 'Cook' Up New Drama

9 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Fans will see Eddie Murphy get back into Axel Foley mode soon enough with Beverly Hills Cop 4 on the way. Plus, there's still that Twins sequel in the works that will team him up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in the cleverly titled Triplets. But before he makes a couple more comedies, he's going to take some time to get into drama briefly. In what will be his first non-animated, non-comedy role since the 2006 musical Dreamgirls, Empire reports that Murphy is slated to star in Cook, a new project from Driving Miss Daisy director Bruce Beresford, that originally had Samuel L. Jackson on board to star. The film would see Murphy playing a man hired by a dying patriarch to help take care of his girlfriend and daughter by cooking them meals and whatnot after he passes away. The script comes from "Californication" writer Susan McMartin with 300 and »

Film Review: ‘ABCs of Death 2’

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leave it to a pair of horror-movie connoisseurs, the sort whose palate for the macabre has sent them to the farthest corners of the globe and the deepest reaches of bootleg video collections, to abandon any semblance of good taste when they finally got the chance to greenlight their own project. In 2012, Ant Timpson and Tim League went hog wild, commissioning 26 short films — one for each letter of the alphabet — emerging with “The ABCs of Death,” a trashy, unapologetically raunchy genre primer. Now that they know their ABCs, it’s time to move on to their 1-2-3s, and with this improved sequel, the producers seem to have learned a lesson.

Like the previous omnibus, “ABCs of Death 2” consists of 26 pics from different directors, clocking in at no more than five minutes apiece. Each is produced on an incredibly low budget and looks roughly the quality of an »

'Pulp Fiction' spawn: The best and worst of the Tarantino clones that followed

14 October 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: Batman talkback!

6 October 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Big week for Bat-talk! Last week, I published a couple Geekly columns focusing on the Dark Knight Detective. First, I drew up my list of the hundred greatest Batman comics, movies, TV episodes, etc. Then I considered whether it was possible to have entirely too much Batman at one time. And would you believe it, everyone has an opinion about Batman–and a ton of great recommendations! Read on for the highlights. Darren Franich was dead-on right in his piece 'Dark Knight Fatigue Rises,' but from just one perspective. In July of 2013, Cartoon Network debuted DC Animation's new CG series "Beware the Batman. »

7 movie marriages from hell: Inception, The Shining, more

4 October 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

David Fincher's pitch-black new thriller Gone Girl is, among many other things, a compelling two-and-a-half-hour argument for staying single.

As was the case in Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel, the central soured marriage between Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy (Rosamund Pike) only grows more unsettling the more you discover about both parties, the seemingly perfect veneer peeling back inch by inch to reveal festering dysfunction.

We can never get enough festering dysfunction over at Digital Spy, so here are seven more of the big screen's most shining examples of marital strife.

1. George and Martha (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?)

The crumbling couple that arguably inspired every other on this list. Edward Albee created the archetypal marriage in spectacular meltdown in his blistering 1962 play, and real-life sparring lovers Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor bring George and Martha vividly to life on the big screen.

Ivan Reitman on Draft Day, letting go of Ghostbusters 3 and Triplets

3 October 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ivan Reitman has said his latest film Draft Day will appeal to cinemagoers who aren't familiar with American football.

The drama centres around Kevin Costner's Sonny Weaver Jr, general manager of the Cleveland Browns, as he negotiates the NFL Draft to acquire his team's number one pick.

"I'm really proud of the movie," the director told Digital Spy. "The thing about it is you don't really have to know much about American football to appreciate it. It's a sports-related film, really, that's a backstage view of what's going on.

"We watch movies where we don't know much about the subject matter all the time. We don't really know about the inner working of the internet but we can get involved in a movie like The Social Network because it's really about characters and the pressure that they're under.
