Blade Runner Sequel Director Announced, Harrison Ford’s Return Confirmed

4 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After all these years, the story of Rick Deckard will continue. A Blade Runner sequel started to pick up steam back in 2011 when it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to direct. While Scott is still creatively involved, it has been revealed that he'll be passing the torch to another director. What is still a big surprise, even after his involvement in the latest Star Wars film, is that Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Deckard:

Press Release via /Film: "Los Angeles, CA, February 26, 2015 — Harrison Ford will reprise his celebrated role of Rick Deckard in the sequel to Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner and Academy Award nominee Denis Villeneuve to (Prisoners, Incendies) is in negotiations to direct, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-ceo’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Blade Runner Sequel Confirmed, Harrison Ford To Return

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that at long last, the Blade Runner sequel has been confirmed, with Harrison Ford set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard. Unfortunately, Ridley Scott will not return as director, but in his place will be Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve.

The plan is for production to get underway in summer 2016 with Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original) and Michael Green penning the script. Plot details are, of course, scarce, but from what we understand the sequel will take place several decades after the events of the original (which makes sense given Ford’s age).

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners,” Alcon Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most »

The Hulk gets an Avengers: Age of Ultron character poster, new TV spot arrives

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we got a character poster for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring Iron Man [see here], and now it’s the turn of the Green Goliath to take centre stage in the latest one-sheet…

Meanwhile, a TV spot has arrived online, although sadly it doesn’t offer up anything in the way of new footage…

Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way »

Rumour: Spider-Man could feature in Avengers: Age of Ultron

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, that didn’t take long.

As soon as it was announced that Spider-Man had joined the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to a cross-pollination deal between Sony and Marvel, speculation was abound that there would be rumours of an appearance of the wall crawler in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

As we said, it didn’t take long.

According to speculation from various websites, the poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron (which was released on Tuesday) reveals that Danny Elfman has provided “extra music” for the film. Now the speculation goes that Danny Elfman provided music for Ang Lee’s Hulk back in 2003, but more famously wrote the score for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 for Sony. Could this mean he has been hired to bring back his Spider-Man score for Avengers: Age of Ultron? Check out the poster below:

Of course, this is all rumour and speculation. »

New posters for Avengers: Age of Ultron

24 February 2015 9:34 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Here you go true believers! The first poster for the next entry in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Feast your eyes on a lot of heroes who don’t like their masks/helmets! I kid…

Update: Here’s an international version of the poster, shifting the spotlight onto Iron Man

It’s not anything we haven’t already seen but it is nice to see the marketing cogs turning. It’s not long now.

If you look very closely at the bottom you can see Anthony Mackie (Falcon) will be there too! It’s a great time to love comics!

What do you think of it?

Perhaps more importantly, what are Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver doing up there on the right?

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release in the UK on April 23rd and North America on May 1st, with Joss Whedon directing a cast »

Desecrating Pynchon. Inherent Vice Arrives on DVD

24 February 2015 5:43 AM, PST | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

There are films that make you want to run to the bookstore or, in reality, Amazon.com. Any Jane Austen or Dickens adaptation. Atonement. Requiem for a Dream perhaps.

Then there is Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice starring Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Martin Short, Reese Witherspoon, Maya Rudolph, and Benicio Del Toro, plus a bevy of other game thespians. This adaptation has a contrary effect. It makes you want to hightail it to the incinerator with every Pynchon paperback you might own. Farewell, V. Sayonara, Gravity's Rainbow.

But before I get too critical, let me just note that this apparently was a project of love for Anderson. Anyone who would tackle Pynchon's verbiage and hope to get a slightly comprehensible screenplay out of it would only do so out of an illimitable devotion for the author. Anderson's chance of success, of course, »

Joss Whedon defends Spider-Man 3

23 February 2015 10:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one comic book movie that is oft-mocked and much maligned, its Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. Whether you hate their treatment of Venom, the fact it has too many characters or that dance sequence, it seems that almost everyone on the face of the Earth hates Spider-Man 3.

Apart from the man with the keys to the Marvel castle, Joss Whedon.

In an interview with Empire (who else?) magazine to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron, Whedon spoke about the difficulties of adding Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into the mix without over-saturating the cast of characters, and used Spider-Man 3 as a comparison piece.

“They have an origin but it’s largely described,” the director said. “They’re already good to go by the time we’re up and running. You don’t want to fall into Spider-Man 3 territory – and I say that as a guy who »
