New Line’s Casting Spree Continues As Jake Lacy And Breanne Hill Climb On Board Rampage

16 February 2017 9:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Rampage lay dormant at New Line throughout the course of 2016, over the past few weeks we’ve witnessed the studio’s high-profile creature feature slowly begin to make the formative steps toward development.

Skyfall and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End star Naomie Harris was the first new recruit to climb on board – she’ll play a talented geneticist with an unflinching moral code, for those keeping track – before New Line earmarked roles for both Joe Manganiello (The Batman) and Marley Shelton. The latter two are still in the midst of negotiations, but it seems the studio’s casting spree is far from over. That’s because Variety brings word that Jake Lacy and Breanne Hill have now joined Ramage in undisclosed roles.

Reuniting with his San Andreas director Brad Peyton – ditto for Hill, who starred as a waitress in the 2015 disaster pic – Dwayne Johnson will headline »

The Weekend Warrior 2/17/17: Fist Fight, The Great Wall, A Cure for Wellness

15 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

The Lego Batman Movie won the weekend as expected, but not with nearly as much money as I had predicted, not besting the opening of The Lego Movie as expected, but instead ending up with a reasonable and not so bad $53 million.  Fifty Shades Darker proved that the audience for movies based on the popular books was still great enough for it to win Friday with $21 million (to Lego Batman’s $15 million) and end up second for the weekend with a strong $46.6 million. That was still almost $40 million less than the opening of the previous movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but the sequel also didn’t have the benefits of Valentine’s Day and a four-day holiday.

Katja Eichinger Sets Up Screenwriting Bursary at Munich Film Academy (Exclusive)

12 February 2017 8:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Katja Eichinger, the novelist, producer, and wife of the late German producer Bernd Eichinger, has set up a screenwriting bursary for students working on their final diploma film at the Hff film academy in Munich.

The bursary for €4,000 ($4,260) will give the selected student six months to deliver a script for a project that could be deemed to deliver “emotional and innovative cinema.” The applicants will be asked to define what cinema means to them and who their cinematic influences are.

“What I’m hoping to do is give students the possibility to find their own, unique voice whilst telling a story that connects with audiences,” Eichinger said.

She added that previous Hff students to achieve this include Frauke Finsterwalder with diploma film “Finsterworld,” as well as Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck with “The Lives of Others.” Other Hff alumni include Wim Wenders, Roland Emmerich, Maren Ade, and Caroline Link.

Eichinger praised the work of Bettina Reitz, »

41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

6 February 2017 3:24 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »

Naomie Harris To Star Opposite Dwayne Johnson In Rampage

25 January 2017 10:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Almost two years have passed since Dwayne Johnson announced plans to reunite with his San Andreas director Brad Peyton for Rampage, New Line’s blockbuster adaptation of the eponymous video game, but the project is now beginning to flicker into life.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Naomie Harris, star of Skyfall and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, has inked a deal to star opposite Johnson as a talented geneticist with an unflinching moral code. Harris, who is hot off her Oscar-nominated turn in Moonlight, reportedly took a liking to Rampage‘s fun, wildly over-the-top script, which tells the story of three grossly mutated creatures – one gorilla, one alligator and a snarling wolf – who leave a trail of destruction and ruined monuments all across the Us of A.

On paper, it sounds like a pitch befitting of Roland Emmerich, Hollywood’s go-to master of cinematic destruction, »

Arrival is returning to cinemas with new footage

25 January 2017 2:05 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Yesterday Denis Villeneuve’s cerebral sci-fi Arrival garnered eight Oscar nominations, and there was much rejoicing. Side-stepping the issue of Amy Adams’ lack of nomination for Best Actress (and come on – she is that movie…) this is a very good thing. Villeneuve’s film came upon the scene with relatively little fanfare and startled audiences with its take on the alien invasion trope. That this was released in the same year as Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence illustrates perfectly how two films can diverge on their treatment of a subject.

News has reached us today that Arrival will be heading back into cinemas at the end of this week in the Us. No firm details of a re-issue on this side of the pond have surfaced as of yet. It’s not uncommon for a film which bags a sizeable fist of awards nominations to be »

Zoolander sequel & Batman vs Superman lead the nominations at the 2017 Razzies

23 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Awards season is here and in full swing, but we can’t always celebrate the great and wonderful, the downright awful needs a whole lot of loving too. That comes in the form of the 37th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards or better known to the masses, The Razzies.

Just announced for this year’s Razzies is the extensive list of nominees of crap cinema-goers had to endure throughout 2016 and hell did we have some corkers? To most, the leading contenders should be of no real surprise, leading the pack is Zoolander No. 2 with a staggering 9 nominations followed closely with the film that made sad Affleck into an internet sensation, Batman v Superman with 8 nominations seeing both nominated in Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Other films with an honourable mention in the worst picture category include Dirty Grandpa and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Batman v Superman and Zoolander No. 2 Lead the 2017 Razzie Nominations

23 January 2017 8:13 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Award season is all about recognizing the best films from the past year, but there is one show that actually does the complete opposite. The Razzies honor the worst in film, so the fewer nominations a film gets, the better it must be. While movies like Suicide Squad and Allegiant only got a little bit of flak, others weren't as lucky. In fact, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scored six nominations for the 37th annual Golden Raspberry Awards. Take a look at the rest of the nominees, and stay tuned for the winners to be announced on Feb. 25, the night before the Oscars.

Movie Review – Underworld: Blood Wars (2017)

10 January 2017 7:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Underworld: Blood Wars, 2017.

Directed by Anna Foerster.

Starring Kate Beckinsale, Theo James, Charles Dance, Tobias Menzies, Lara Pulver, James Faulkner, Peter Andersson, Bradley James, Daisy Head and Clementine Nicholson.

Synopsis:

Underworld: Blood Wars follows Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. With her only allies, David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.

A film shouldn’t have to start with a “previously on.” A film shouldn’t have to start with a “previously on” then continue to play out as a “previously on” with dialogue existing only as an expositional device to reinforce it’s existence as a “previously on.” A film should not; 20, 40, 60 minutes in drop in a further »

The Biggest Monster Movies

10 January 2017 3:42 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Chris Haydon

Ferocious, unpredictable, and all-powerful, the silver screen’s history is laden with spectacular monsters. From intergalactic invaders and prehistoric prowlers, to those fearful foes who take residence a little closer to home, the cinema has produced many monster movies whose creatures fill us with dread every time we settle in and watch their adventures.

To celebrate the launch of the Sony Movie Channel on Freeview and Virgin on the 10th of January, we’ve taken the time to rank the leanest, meanest, and downright biggest monster movies of them all. Spanning decades of directorial talent and a multitude of genres, here is our definitive list…

10. Godzilla (1998)

There have been many big-screen variations of the classic Japanese monster, dating back as far as the 1950s, but few outings for the legendary God of Destruction are quite as overlooked as Roland Emmerich’s 1998 rendition. Let loose in America’s beloved New York City, »

Movie Review: The Underworld franchise keeps sucking in Blood Wars

9 January 2017 5:57 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Five movies in, the Underworld series—the day-for-night soap opera to Resident Evil’s pulp anthology—remains humorlessly committed to the eternal conflict between high-tech, goth-industrial Draculoids and their grungy werewolf foes, soldiering on with its post-Matrix aesthetic of pleather catsuits, submachine guns, and floor-length coats with way too many buckles. Too rote to be trash, it has to make do with being mere junk, impatiently exposing more incoherent machinations and more condo-board-like council meetings involving the dullest vampires in moviedom. Written by Cory Goodman (Priest, The Last Witch Hunter) and directed with sort-of-competence by the longtime Roland Emmerich associate Anna Foerster, the new, generically titled Underworld: Blood Wars is everything an entry in this notoriously interchangeable series is supposed to be, though anyone expecting it to be good has walked into the wrong theater. It has murky werewolf-on-vampire action, dialogue that sounds lifted from a dubbed early ’60s »
