Carnage is maybe-probably in the 'Venom' spinoff movie

15 April 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in a few weeks, but Sony continues to busily construct the architecture to turn its solo superhero franchise into a multi-spinoff megafranchise, with villain-centric films about The Sinister Six and Venom promising to offer a slightly darker alternative to the glitter-bright Marvel Studios universe. (If you will, Sony’s Spider-verse is the Hot Topic to Marvel Studios’ Pacific Sunwear.) The Sinister Six appears closer to reality, with Drew Goddard apparently onboard to write-direct. But the studio also dropped a potentially big hint about the Venom film on the Daily Bugle Tumblr built for Amazing Spider-Man 2. »

Why Ray Winstone Is Perfect for That 'Point Break' Remake (Clips)

9 April 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Brit character actor Ray Winstone is in talks to star in the tussled-about "Point Break" remake as FBI agent Angelo Pappas, a role Gary Busey immortalized in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 homoerotic cult classic about bank-robbing surfers. He'll be joining Gerard Butler, currently cast as wave-chasing, surfer-gang leader Bodhi (originally played by Patrick Swayze). Aussie hunk Luke Bracey will star opposite Butler and Winstone as FBI rookie Johnny Utah (played Keanu Reeves in Bigelow's film). Winstone induced shivers in 1999 as a walking picture of paternal evil in Tim Roth's indie "The War Zone," but you've also seen him skulking along the fringes of many mainstream and indie films, including "The Departed," "Cold Mountain," "Hugo," "Sexy Beast" and as a descendent of Cain in "Noah."  Across the pond, he's been a film and TV mainstay for decades, with two BAFTA noms under his belt, accolades from the British Independent Film Awards »

Why does Marvel Studios keep sidelining its antagonists?

8 April 2014 1:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Rob Leane 10 Apr 2014 - 06:11

From Trevor Slattery to the Winter Soldier, Rob looks at one of the Marvel universe’s most curious traits...

This article contains spoilers for every McU movie up to and including Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Since Iron Man kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008, Marvel Studios has gradually built worldwide box office dominance, developing a sprawling superpowered franchise which every other studio wants to emulate. It isn’t without its curiosities and questionable decisions, though.

While Iron Man’s villain Obadiah Stane was revealed rather late in the film, he was a decent enough adversary for an origin story, and he pushed an early-in-his-superhero-career Tony Stark to his limits. In the same year, General Ross was a clear and deadly villain for The Incredible Hulk film, even though Tim Roth’s Abomination did all the heavy lifting.

Similarly, Tom Hiddlestone’s debut »

Quentin Tarantino to Direct 'The Hateful Eight' Live for One Night Only

3 April 2014 2:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As you may know, Quentin Tarantino shelved his latest project The Hateful Eight after the screenplay for this Western was leaked, and subsequently found its way online. While in the midst of suing Gawker over the distribution of the copyrighted work, with a lawsuit that recently got a trial date, Tarantino has decided to direct a one night only live reading of the screenplay.

The production will come to life on stage at Lacma (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) thanks to Film Independent, and the team that promotes director Jason Reitman's Live Read series, which finds popular actors reading various iconic screenplays in front of a live audience.

The The Hateful Eight live read directed by Quentin Tarantino will take place on April 24, and tickets aren't cheap. They will run you $200. While that may seem steep, Film Independent and Quentin Tarantino are promising a unique experience. While previous »

Quentin Tarantino Casting & Directing Live Read Of Leaked Script 'The Hateful Eight'

3 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With his lawsuit against Gawker over their linking to his leaked script "The Hateful Eight" ongoing (a trial date is set for January 27, 2015) and the status of whether or not this will actually be his next movie or not up in the air (he said it was shelved, but later rumors surfaced he was still rewriting it), Quentin Tarantino has decided to roll out the western in its first, legal airing. And you better hope you have a couple hundreds bucks to spare and can make it to Los Angeles. Film Independent at Lacma has announced that Tarantino will cast and direct a live read of the script for one night only on Thursday, April 24th. Tarantino will set the mood with stage directions and other cues, with a group of yet-to-be-announced actors filling out the roles.

20 actors who almost got the part: Katniss, Loki, Bond, Batman

29 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With rumours flying about a new Indiana Jones and Disney reportedly closing in on their final choices for Jj Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, the Hollywood casting machine is operating at an even higher temperature than usual.

You'll be familiar with some of these near-misses, but others are frankly astonishing. Which rapper almost took Matt Damon's role in Elysium? Which former Friends star was the first choice to front Men in Black? And why is Leonardo DiCaprio Christian Bale's nemesis? Read on...

Al Pacino - Star Wars

Pacino revealed during a Q&A session last year that the role of roguish smuggler Han Solo was "his for the taking" back in the '70s, but he turned it down because he didn't understand the script. Harrison Ford made the role iconic and ended up having his own issues with Lucas's script, famously telling the director "You can type this s**t, »

Watch: 50-Minute Look At The Making Of James Gray's Directorial Debut 'Little Odessa'

28 March 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Late last week came news that James Gray’s “The Immigrant” — which we are quite taken with — would be getting limited theatrical run in a couple of months. What better way to celebrate news of Gray’s latest seeing the inside of movie theatres (instead of languishing on the VOD market) than with a look at back at the celebrated director’s first film? The iconic Franco-German channel Arte has released a nearly hour-long special that takes a look at Gray’s directorial debut “Little Odessa” with some interviews with the filmmaker himself,Tim Roth and Vanessa Redgrave, among others. For fans of the Brighton Beach-set film, it’s illuminating walk down memory lane and for new arrivals, it’s a great primer for the Silver Lion-winning film. Though the special has some unsubtitled French narration, the interviews are all in English. Watch the documentary below, along with the trailer for the 1995 film. »

Watch: Go Inside The Shady Operation Of Thriller 'Möbius' Starring Jean Dujardin In New Trailer

26 March 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While the initial, "Inception"-y trailer for "Möbius" was pretty exciting, it was a disappointment to find out that the resulting thriller ultimately wasn't so hot. Our review out of the Tribeca Flim Festival last year called the picture "story-heavy" and "nakedly superficial," which is a bummer considering the international ensemble pulled together for this one. But if you want to see for yourself, the movie is coming to home video and a new trailer is here to set it all up for you. Starring Jean DujardinCécile De FranceTim Roth and Émilie Dequenne, writer/director Éric Rochant's film follows a Russian operative trying to crack an international money laundering scheme. But that's just the start of double crosses, intrigue, sex and beautiful people doing bad, beautiful things. Certainly, this looks slicker than you might expect, and again, the talent is hard to deny. So perhaps this is one »

Sundance Presents Cross-Section of U.S. Indie Fare, Music-Themed Pix at London Festival

24 March 2014 4:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — As the lineup for the third Sundance London film and music festival is unveiled, Variety talks to John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, and Trevor Groth, Sundance’s director of programming, about the selection (see below for full lineup).

Sundance London, which runs April 25-27, will include 21 feature films and 18 shorts across five sections, as well as live performances by a number of musical acts, which will be linked to movies screening at the fest, and a series of panel discussions.

Cooper says that when Robert Redford and the Sundance team set up the London event, one of their motivations was to give added exposure to U.S. indie films in the international market.

“We realized that the international life of an American independent film was crucial to its success,” he says. The London fest’s creation was partly driven by an impulse to do “anything we »

Tim Key: from living-room poetry jams to comedy ubiquity

14 March 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Best known as Alan Partridge's Sidekick Simon, the self-proclaimed Single White Slut has found a keen audience for his weird, unsettling comedy

"I didn't have an elaborate cover story that I'd continually roll out, like Tim Roth in Reservoir Dogs. I didn't train myself to have this anecdote I could do. I just quietly said which college I was at, then joined in with the acting." We're sitting in the cafe of a school trip-infested National Theatre, and I'm making Tim Key recount the time he blagged his way into another cherished dramatic institution, the Cambridge Footlights ("I tell this story quite a lot now," he sighs).

"I went to Sheffield to study Russian and came back and had six months trying to work out what to do next. I thought I'd do some acting, so I auditioned for this pantomime. And this pantomime was run by the Footlights, »
