Legendary's panel at Comic Con yesterday confirmed that Michael Mann's new thriller previously titled "Cyber" has scored a new name - "Blackhat". The Chris Hemsworth-led film is scheduled for a mid-January release but will score a limited theatrical run in late December to potentially qualify for awards consideration.
Footage was screened showcasing a globe-hopping thriller, but in the same grainy style of Mann's films like "Collateral" and "Miami Vice". Hemsworth plays a convict who is released to team up with a group of Americans and Chinese in a hunt for a high-level cybercrime network operating around the world. The action runs from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta.

Comic-Con gave fans a sneak peek at the highly-anticipated “The Simpsons”-”Family Guy” crossover episode on Saturday, and now the five-minute trailer has hit the web, giving everyone a look at the Simpsons and Griffin families colliding.
The episode, airing Sept. 28 and fittingly titled “The Simpsons Guy,” has the Griffins accidentally ending up in Springfield, where Peter Griffin makes the acute observation that “everyone around here looks like they have hepatitis.”
They meet up with the Simpsons, and Homer and Peter unsurprisingly bond over donuts while Bart introduces Stewie to pranks calls (to the horror of Stewie’s prank call victims). However, Homer and Peter get into an argument over Pawtucket Patriot Ale and Duff Beer and it quickly escalates, threatening the new-found friendship.
Throwing more to the animation fans, Bob of “Bob’s Burgers” also makes an appearance. The “Family Guy” panel at Comic-Con teased even more of the upcoming season, »

Arrow fans were in for a special treat when series star Stephen Amell pressed play on the previously released preview trailer from the action-packed series' upcoming third season, featuring footage of Colton Haynes in the Arsenal costume, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer and Karl Yune as Maseo. But Amell also had a Saturday night surprise up his sleeve - a new ending to the trailer which revealed that a nightmare is coming: Ra's al Ghul! Arrow returns Wednesday, October 8, at 8/7c on The CW. Take a look at the extended trailer below, then read on for more information from executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg.
The trailer debuted during Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's massive three-hour panel, which was hosted by Stephen Amell. After the panel, executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that Ra's al Ghul's introduction had been in the works for quite some time.

Batman’s enemy is becoming Oliver Queen’s: A new Arrow trailer reveals that Ra’s al Ghul will be the season-three villain.
The Arrow team released a trailer yesterday—sans villain—and then released an updated trailer featuring some mysterious shots of Ra’s al Ghul, who Liam Neeson played in both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises, later that evening at Comic-Con.
Before the villain’s identity was announced, Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg spoke with EW about the upcoming season and claimed the new Big Bad isn’t so different from series protagonist Oliver. “He doesn »

Five Simpsons Characters We Want Dead
The nearly five-minute teaser finds the Griffins stuck in Springfield, where Peter cautions his family not to drink the water: "Everybody around here looks like they have hepatitis." As the families merge, Bart introduces Stewie to his prank-call hobby (Stewie doesn't quite get the premise) and Peter and Homer bond over donuts. The friendship between the two patriarchs sours, »
Despite all those mentions of Ra's Al Ghul during season two of Arrow, many fans thought we would never actually get to see the well-known Batman villain in the series. Well, he's coming, as you can see from the new trailer below! We don't get to see who will be playing Ra's here and the role hasn't actually been cast as of yet according to those working on the series, but The CW have been picking some very recognisable names for these roles lately, so expect it to be a familiar face. It's an exciting time to be a fan of Arrow as a number of characters from the comic books will be making their live-action debuts this year, including the recently confirmed Wildcat! Ra's Al Ghul was last seen in Batman Begins, played by Liam Neeson. Check out the teaser below »
After much fan speculation about Arrow‘s “Big Bad” for season three, it’s finally been made official: the Demon’s Head himself, Ra’s al Ghul, is making his way to Starling City.
The news was announced at San Diego Comic-Con during the Warner Bros./DC TV panel in Hall H late Saturday night. The announcement was followed by some comments from executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who stated that the seeds for Ra’s’ arrival had been planted very early on:
“It really happened very organically in the sense that we had this notion that in episode 16 we were going to reveal that Malcolm Merlyn was trained by the League of Assassins and that’s because that’s because of the comic book. We were like, you know what we’re going to do? We’re going to get away with a little reference about a guy in Nanda Parbat who changed his life. »

One things fans can never complain about the CW’s Arrow is a lack of DC Comics characters. Over the course of the show’s two seasons we’ve seen countless villains and heroes from the comics, and that trend will continue as we head into year three. We’ve already seen characters like Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom (played by Superman Returns‘ Brandon Routh), the New 52 version of Count Vertigo (Fargo‘s Peter Stormare) and Katana (Sin City‘s Devon Aoki) join the ranks, and now we have two more names to add to that list.
The first new addition is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, a championship boxer who served as a mentor and trainer to several younger heroes including Black Canary and Batman. He’s a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and has been seen in several DC animated series like »

The "Arrow" Season 3 tease that played at Saturday's (July 27) Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment in Hall H was identical to the teaser that played before the Ballroom 20 panel on Friday. Well, not in All ways. As Night of DC Entertainment Mc Stephen Amell teased easier, the only difference in the sizzle reel was the last 15 seconds. And what a difference those 15 seconds made, as they set up this "Arrow" season's big DC Comics' addition, noted League of Assassins frontman Ra's al Ghul, a character best known to the widest audience from Liam Neeson's performance in "Batman Begins." The character was name-dropped repeatedly last season on "Arrow" and his daughter Nyssa made several appearances tied to the origin story of Sara Lance as Black Canary. Check out the teaser. I hesitate to call Ra's al Ghul this "Arrow" season's Big Bad, because within this universe, »

Earlier this month, we reported that Family Guy will kick off Season 13 with a special one-hour premiere that crosses over with The Simpsons, in an episode entitled "The Simpsons Guy". During the Family Guy Comic-Con panel earlier today, Fox debuted a special five-minute clip that shows the Griffin clan in Family Guy somehow getting stranded in Springfield, where they meet The Simpsons.
Watch as these two Animation Domination hits share the screen together, along with a few surprise cameos from Cleveland Brown (Mike Henry) and Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) from Bob's Burgers, then read on for more details that were revealed during the panel.
Family Guy producers Steve Callaghan and Richard Appel also teased a special Christmas episode, where Jesus returns and the guys all discover that he's a virgin, as they go on a quest to get him laid. Voice actor Mike Henry acknowledged the sacrilegious nature of the episode. »
"Family Guy" hit Ballroom 20 on Saturday (July 26) for its annual Comic-Con panel, an event with kinda tends to ebb and flow in hype based on whether or not Seth MacFarlane is there to mock question-askers. This was a second consecutive Seth MacFarlane-free year. Last year he was working on "A Million Ways To Die In The West." This year, his absence was unexplained [on the "Family Guy" panel, but it came up at "American Dad" subsequently] and raises the possibility that Seth MacFarlane has just become too big for making fun of questioners at Comic-Con. Fortunately, in lieu of Seth MacFarlane, the "Family Guy" team arrived with a longer clip reel for the season's hour-long "The Simpsons Guy" crossover event, which will air on September 28. At TCA press tour last week we got a very brief sizzle reel that included jokes about the Springfield location ("I can't imagine we're allowed to »

If you’ve always wondered what would happen if Peter Griffin and Homer Simpson hung out at a bar while Bart and Stewie made prank phone calls, Family Guy is about to satisfy your crossover craving. In the Sept. 28 season premiere, “The Simpsons Guy,” the albino Griffins wind up by accident in Springfield, where they are greeted warmly by the hepatits-y Simpsons. But a fast friendship christened with delicious doughnuts may be forever destroyed by an argument over Pawtucket Patriot Ale and Duff Beer, which leads to an epic chicken fight.

Among the highlights from the sneak peek: Homer and Peter eat donuts and realize they have a lot in common; Bart and Stewie prank call Moe’s Tavern (and it escalates quickly); Peter attempts to get Homer to set up a cutaway gag; Bob from “Bob’s Burgers” makes an appearance; Stewie and Bart go skateboarding; Homer and Peter discover some unnerving similarities between Duff and Pawtucket Patriot Ale; and the duo get into a predictably destructive fight across Springfield’s most notable locations.
“Simpsons” creator Matt Groening also appeared during the panel to ask for the producers’ advice on how a young, struggling animator could break into the business, and told them to kiss his ass a little more.

There's been famous online leaks before, from the work print of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" to the more recent work print of the "Doctor Who" new season premiere. In both cases they were rough cuts with unfinished effects and watermarks galore.
This week though saw perhaps the most damaging early leak to date - a DVD-quality copy of "The Expendables 3" onto piracy sites and torrenting networks, a full three weeks before the film is scheduled to be released anywhere.
Variety reports that copies began cropping up on torrent-sharing sites Wednesday and downloads started to spike Thursday,according to data provided by piracy-analytics firm Excipio. The film has reportedly already been downloaded 189,000 times over a 24-hour period. It's a double blow to the film's distributor Lionsgate as the key demo for the film are often also the biggest users of illegal file-sharing services.
Screencaps attached to the files indicate there are no identifying watermarks, »

Catch the colourful children's animation Khumba three days before DVD - in Sky Store. Half-striped zebra Khumba (Jake T Austin) is kicked out by his superstitious herd and embarks on a daring quest to earn his stripes. When he chances on a map locating a magical lake, he grabs the chance to prove his worth and heads out into the wild with the help of killer leopard Phango (Liam Neeson). »
How can a film exist somewhere between being an ambitious Hollywood oddity and a wacky hot mess of a film? Days after seeing Luc Besson’s new film Lucy I’m still trying to figure this out. Going into a Besson film you have to expect a strong female-centered action-fest. The French director has made a career of this going back to La Femme Nikita, to The Fifth Element, all the way to his more recent Indiana Jones and Allan Quatermain inspired period piece The Extraordinary Adventure Of Adele Blanc-sec (which exists relatively unnoticed and is worth checking out if you’re a fan of pulp adventure stories). However Lucy kind of exists in a different conversation than these previously mentioned films for a lot of reasons. First of all, despite her stunning features, Johansson’s Lucy is nowhere near as memorable as some of the leads in these other films. »

The son of scuba-diving instructors, Luc Besson came of age exploring the depths of the ocean floor and inventing stories out of the debris he would find along the shore. Some 50 years later, he is still playing with rocks in the sand — only now his shoreline is the river Seine and his castle a 667,000-square-foot film studio called Cite du Cinema (literally Cinema City). Built from the shell of a 1930s thermal power plant in the Paris suburb of Saint Denis, the sprawling complex — which includes nine soundstages, a 500-seat auditorium and a full-service restaurant — is headquarters for Besson’s prolific production and distribution outfit, EuropaCorp, plus a host of affiliated vendors and two film schools.
On a recent Friday afternoon, despite a bank-holiday weekend in France, Cite du Cinema was a hive of activity as editors, sound mixers and visual effects artists readied two new EuropaCorp productions for their »

Over the course of his dozen-plus films as a writer-director, Parisian auteur Luc Besson has become known for his stylish inversions of schlock genre fare and a certain, shall we call it, Vive la femme attitude toward women.
Time and again, his movies place emotionally fragile female characters in physically perilous situations: a conflicted hit-woman struggling with the perils of her job in 1990’s La Femme Nikita, 12-year old Natalie Portman on the run as an assassin-in-training in The Professional, and Milla Jovovich’s universe-saving alien Leeloo in The Fifth Element (1997) among them. Besson’s latest multiplex offering appears set to follow that template. »

The pic follows a blind man who regains his vision only to be engulfed in selfishness, blinded by his obsession for the superficial.
The film will begin production this August in upstate New York.
Fluk directed the 2011 Israeli film “Never Too Late.”
Stevens has had a busy 2014 thus far beginning with his dark turn in “The Guest” which premiered at Sundance and led to strong reviews for the young actor. He can be seen next alongside Liam Neeson in the Cross Creek pic “A Walk Among Tombstones” and also has “The Cobbler” starring Adam Sandler and “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” bowing later this year.
He recently wrapped production on the ensemble drama “Criminal Activities. »

Since he finished playing James Bond twelve years ago, Pierce Brosnan has tried his hand in a variety of genres, from comedy (The Matador) to musical (Mamma Mia!). However, as the trope of older action heroes kicking major amounts of butt has become the bread and butter of stars like Liam Neeson, Brosnan has avoided roles that remind us of 007. Now, however, the 61-year-old actor hopes to rekindle the flame of Bond for the new thriller The November Man, which comes out on Wednesday, August 27.
In The November Man, directed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job), Brosnan plays Peter Devereaux, an ex-cia agent who comes back into the fore to protect a valuable witness. He ends up going head-to-head with a former pupil, played by Luke Bracey (who will play Johnny Utah in the Point Break remake). Olga Kurylenko, who also has a connection to the 007 franchise, plays the witness, »
