Gandalf featured in new image from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we brought you the first still from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which featured Gandalf (Ian McKellen) alongside Bard (Luke Evans) [see here], and now USA Today has debuted a new image, with the grey wizard back alongside Lee Pace’s Elven king Thranduil…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen »

Check Out Ian McKellen And Luke Evans In The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Image

17 July 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whatever your thoughts are on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy when compared to the director’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, you certainly can’t fault him for casting. This new trilogy, which concludes in December with The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, has brought back Ian McKellen as the great wizard Gandalf and Orlando Bloom as archer Legolas, while starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, Benedict Cumberbatch as the dragon Smaug and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, among many, many others. Now, we’ve got a new image from the trilogy topper, highlighting McKellen and Evans as they gaze, awe-struck, off-screen at what I can only presume is The Hobbit‘s collective worldwide box office haul.

Granted, the shot isn’t the most revealing, but it’s a nice reminder that this movie is on its way. So much attention »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Gets An Official Synopsis

15 July 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy hasn’t received nearly as positive reviews as The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the first two installments were solid, if overlong, high fantasy adventures, thanks both to Jackson’s sense of visual splendor and the talents of the ensemble cast. An Unexpected Journey was more dull than many expected, though I personally enjoyed it, and The Desolation of Smaug was a big step up from that, accelerating the pace and featuring some truly epic battles. So, will the trilogy-topper, this winter’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, keep that upward momentum going to become the best of the bunch? It’s too early to say, of course, but the first official synopsis for the fantasy film certainly seems promising.

The Forgotten: "The Reckoning" (1969)

10 July 2014 5:36 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Screening at Edinburgh International Film Festival as part of a retrospective on writer John McGrath, Jack Gold’s first two features, The Bofors Gun (1968) and The Reckoning (1969), made for punchy, exciting viewing.

Both films were made fairly fast and cheap—Gold, experienced in TV, keeps them moving with stabs of the zoom lens, an active camera and choppy, rough-hewn cutting. They’re not things of beauty, visually, but take their energy and spleen from Nicol Williamson’s manic performances.

The Bofors Gun takes place at a British army base in Germany, where David Warner has to command the night’s guard of the titular cannon without incident in order to get returned to Blighty the following day. His reluctance to discipline his men leads to horrific consequences, mostly caused by a drunken Irishman played by drunken Scottish actor Williamson (Merlin in Excalibur). Williamson’s capacity for loquacious, frenzied and diabolic grandstanding is exercised thoroughly. »

Sigourney Weaver Returns As Ripley For Alien: Isolation

9 July 2014 10:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For years, fans have been rallying for a proper video game based on the Alien film franchise, which revolutionized the sci-fi genre and scared the pants off of generations of fans. While Aliens: Colonial Marines was a slap in the face with a thumbtack taped to the palm, us scorned fans have our hopes up for the upcoming Alien: Isolation. Following Ripley’s daughter Amanda, the game promises to deliver a survival-horror experience on par with the original film’s intensely terrifying game of cat-and-mouse.

As if developers Creative Assembly weren’t spoiling fans enough already, they’ve just announced that Sigourney Weaver will be reprising her role as Ellen Ripley for a Dlc chapter that follows the crew of the Nostromo during their first encounter with the Xenomorph.

Joining Weaver is a majority of the original cast, including Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton and Veronica Cartwright. »

You are hiding in a locker and keep telling yourself, "Breathe slow, breathe slow." But it’s hard to stay calm when all you can see is a gigantic tail laboring across the floor in front of you, attached to a body that craves your mortal coil with a need only known by crackheads at 6 am.

Sigourney Weaver and the Cast of 'Alien' Return for 'Alien: Isolation'

9 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

We've still not quite forgiven video game publisher Sega (and developer Gearbox) for the absolutely dreadful Aliens sequel Aliens: Colonial Marines, but the company is doing its best to win us back into the Xenomorph video game fold with today’s news. Sega has revealed that the latest title in the series, Alien: Isolation, will feature not only the voice talents of Sigourney Weaver, but also her Alien costars Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton and Veronica Cartwright. That’s most of the original film’s cast, minus Ian Holm, who will not be back. For an Alien geek, this is pretty awesome news. While the main game follows Ellen’s daughter, Amanda, as she searches for her mother 15 years after the events in the original film...

Pre-Order Bonus Content for Alien: Isolation Features Voice of Sigourney Weaver and Ability to Play through Scenes from Alien

9 July 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The previous Alien game, Aliens: Colonial Marines was, to put it lightly, reviled to the point of people suing the developers for making a game so incredibly terrible.  The new Alien game, Alien: Isolation, looks like a vast improvement by taking the popular sci-fi series away from a first-person shooter and moving it to a first-person survival horror game.  Those who pre-order Alien: Isolation will get a pretty cool bonus: the ability to play through two scenes from Ridley Scott's Alien, and they will have the authenticity of including voice work from actors Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley), Tom Skerritt (Dallas), Veronica Cartwright (Lambert), Harry Dean Stanton (Brett), and Yaphet Kotto (Parker).  Ash will still look like Ian Holm, but it will be a sound-alike.  Damn androids. Hit the jump to check out the pre-order trailer and the press release, which details the two scenes from Alien »

Five of the key seven cast from 1979's "Alien" are set to reprise their roles in the upcoming survival horror video game release "Alien: Isolation".
