Everest Releases New Images That Highlight Unfriendly Terrain

3 hours ago | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Everest is just about to hit (September 18th), and while the man vs. nature genre isn’t for everyone, there are some movies worth seeing just for the effort involved, and anything shot, at least partially, on location in Nepal is on that list. Add an incredible cast, and even if the true story about an attempt to reach the summit of Everest gone wrong doesn’t instantly appeal to you, this still has to be one on your radar.

In order to make sure that you’re not misled by the days of CGI and fantastic sets, the film has released some very cool images that, if nothing else, clue you in to the fact that this perhaps wasn’t just a walk in the park for most of the actors.

Take a look below, and lose yourself in the frosty goodness.

 

Cast: Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, »

Universal Pictures 2015 Fall Movie Preview with New Photos

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures is having a banner year. They set some pretty big industry records, wrecking the box office with their franchise sequels and one very sly biopic that no one saw coming. Now, they are ready to unleash their fall and holiday slate, which runs from September to November. They're going to tap out early, with nothing set for release in December. That's okay. They've already done better than any other studio in 2015. They could take the rest of the year off, and it still wouldn't matter.

But they're not going to do that. Traditionally, fall movies are all about Oscar. It's the awards season, and most studios are ready to flaunt their drama-heavy fare. Universal is taking a slightly different approach. While they have a few Academy Award contenders coming our way over the course of the next three months, they seem more interested in keeping the big blockbuster train moving. »

Things Go From Bad To Worse In Gripping New Clip And TV Spot For Everest

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

Standing tall at an eye-watering 8,848 metres above sea level, few environments on planet Earth are as hostile to the average human as that found on Everest. With temperatures fluctuating between -20ºC and -35ºC at the summit, it’s little wonder why the famed mount attracts only the bravest of the brave. In 1996, though, an expedition went awry when two groups of explorers were caught in the throes of a relentless blizzard, and it proved to be one of the worst disasters in the mountain’s long and storied history.

Almost a decade on, that event has inspired the release of Baltasar Kormákur’s title drama, charting the real-life events of the doomed mountaineering exercise. Lifting inspiration from Jon Krakauer’s acclaimed book Into Thin Air along with a variety of interviews and records from the ’96 disaster,  Kormákur’s Everest is gunning for a frighteningly realistic portrayal of the climb, »

What Was Thanos Talking About In That Avengers Mid-Credits Scene?

26 August 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Although James Spader.s Ultron was, of course, the primary antagonist in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the film also met up with another notable Marvel evildoer: Thanos. To refresh everyone.s memories, after the genocidal robot was defeated and the Avengers established their new team, the Mad Titan (voiced by Josh Brolin) was then seen retrieving one of the Infinity Gauntlets and saying, "Fine, I.ll do it myself," as he slipped the imposing gold glove on his hand. In case you missed it, the HD version of the scene leaked online earlier this week, so you can watch those 20 seconds in crisp clarity on repeat. However, as cool as that scene was, it does have us us questioning what he said and why he said it at that moment. The problem isn.t his actual words. It.s clear that after the failures of his subordinates, Thanos has decided »

"Three Seconds" Shuts Down Filming

26 August 2015 1:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The upcoming Luke Evans and Josh Brolin-led action thriller "Three Seconds" appears to have shut down production indefinitely right as it was about to begin filming.

Heery Casting, the extras casting director for the film says that the project shut down production and will not be continuing. The production was ready to go in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with the actors like Evans, Brolin, David Oyelowo, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Olivia Munn in town and ready to go.

However, with the state budget not yet passed the state could not guarantee them tax credits they needed as part of Pa's tax credit program. They waited on it, but in the process lost one of the main actors and so have shut down.

There was a rumor that the project could move to the Pittsburgh area, but Greater Philadelphia Film Office Executive Director Sharon Pinkenson tells Philly Mag that the project has been »

Working Title eyes larger-scale films

25 August 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The UK’s biggest film production company has its eyes on larger-scale films.

Working Title, whose biggest successes have included rom-coms Four Weddings And A Funeral and Bridget Jones’s Diary, is looking to make more big-canvas films in the vein of Les Miserables and Venice opener Everest.

Speaking to ScreenDaily ahead of Everest’s world premiere on the Lido next Wednesday (Sept 2), Working Title co-chair Tim Bevan said the company would like to produce more films on the scale of the $60m adventure-thriller, which is the company’s first 3D feature:

“I think it’s very much something we want to do, yes: intelligent popcorn [movies] at a scale,” he said. “It’s fun to do a bigger movie.”

Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley, Jason Clarke and Emily Watson are among the stellar ensemble cast of Baltasar Kormakur-directed Everest, which charts the events surrounding the 1996 Mount Everest disaster when a climbing expedition was devastated by a severe »

New Sicario Clip Online

25 August 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There are few things, we'd suggest, liable to brighten up a Tuesday afternoon more than Emily Blunt crashing a van through someone's house and then shooting the place up. So with that in mind, here's a new clip from Denis Villeneuve's cartel crime thriller Sicario. You're welcome.Sicario – which means “hitman” in Mexico – is set on the lawless border between the United States and its southern neighbour, where some of the most violent battles of the drug war are fought. Dropped into this near literal trial by fire is idealistic FBI agent Kate Macer (Blunt), who has been recruited by shadowy elite government agent Matt (Josh Brolin). Heading across the border with an enigmatic “consultant” (Benicio Del Toro), Kate and her team start a journey that will have her questioning everything she knows about good and bad. She witnesses the many shades of grey that lie in between what »

Pulse-Pounding Sicario Clip Has Emily Blunt Breach And Clear A Safe House

24 August 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Among the many compliments hailed at Edge of Tomorrow, one of the most prominent was in regards to Emily Blunt’s turn in the sci-fi actioner as battle-worn veteran Sergeant Rita Rose Vrataski. It was a role that proved to be just as memorable as that of Tom Cruise’s, and the actress is dipping her toe in the genre once more – albeit for a film that swaps alien invasion for gruelling drug busts – with Denis Villeneuve’s anticipated thriller, Sicario.

Partnering with his regular cinematographer Roger Deakins once more after 2013’s excellent genre piece Prisoners, the director’s latest project is shaping up to be a slick, pulse-pounding drama, and today’s clip only drives that point home. Charting a drugs bust carried out by Benicio Del Toro’s enigmatic consultant, the footage sees Emily Blunt’s rookie FBI agent get thrust in at the deep end upon joining the elite task force, »
