The World Needs A Monster In First Dracula Untold Clip

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

In the interests of full disclosure, I will admit that I am a big fan of vampires. By vampires, I mean proper vampires: blood-sucking Nosferatus with pallid skin and bloody fangs whose ultimate goal is to create an army of the undead, or something like that. As a result, I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt to almost any new attempt to tell a vampire story. But with the upcoming Dracula Untold looking more and more like Underworld Redux, it’s a bit of a struggle even for me.

Dracula Untold is not, as might be hoped, the true story of Vlad Tepes, the Romanian ruler whose reputation as “Vlad the Impaler” partially inspired author Bram Stoker to create his famous vampire. No, Dracula Untold is a vampire movie about how Vlad transforms into a bloodsucker in order to keep the peace in Transylvania and stop Mehmet »

Go Batty For A Brand New Clip From ‘Dracula Untold’

15 September 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We all wait in anticipation for the Gary Shore directed, and Luke Evans starring Dracula Untold, which heads to cinemas on the 3rd of October. The film tells the story of the origins of the legendary Dracula, played here by Fast And Furious 6 star Evans. While we absolutely bloody love Mr. Evans and his work in the brilliant ‘Hobbit’ movies, and even Tamara Drewe, we’re a little hesitant about this as the history of bringing of old monster movies to modern audiences haven’t been that successful (we’re thinking Van Helsing, the recent I, Frankenstein rubbish).

Dominic Cooper, Sarah Gadon and Charles Dance also star in Dracula Untold, so big thumbs up in terms of casting…

Watch a brand new clip from the film below.

Gotham, Peaky Blinders, The Flash: 17 autumn TV shows you will love

15 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The evenings are getting shorter, you've already seen the first festive cards for sale at your local supermarket and The X Factor is back on Saturday nights. To borrow a phrase - winter is coming.

But don't despair, because there is much more to autumn TV in 2014 than Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell bickering over a bunch of karaoke singers. Don't believe us? Check out our list of 17 must-watch shows, which mean that you might as well cancel your plans until Christmas.

1. Glue - E4

A bloke from Rizzle Kicks, a writer from This Is England and lots of horses. It doesn't sound like an obvious hit, but Glue is most definitely worth getting excited about.

Skins crossed with Midsomer Murders and an added sinister, bleak edge, is probably the best description for this eight-parter, which will have you hooked from its full-on (and full frontal) opening sequence.

Luke Evans stars in first clip from Dracula Untold: watch now

14 September 2014 10:20 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

The first clip from Dracula Untold has arrived online, in which Luke Evans attemps to convince Charles Dance that the world needs a monster… Evans stars as Vlad the Impaler in the new film, which follows his transformation into the legendary creature of the night from whom it takes its name. It’s a powerful piece of speech-making from our Vlad, but unfortunately for him, he appears to have underestimated just how much Dance knows about what truly makes a monster… Take a look at the new clip, below… ...

First Dracula Untold Clip: Luke Evans Insists the World Needs a Monster

13 September 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Dracula Untold just a little less than a month away from its big debut, Universal has unleashed the very first clip from the film.  I’m not sure I’m buying the whole “men do not fear swords, they fear monsters” argument, but apparently Caligula (Charles Dance) does because ultimately he does turn Vlad (Luke Evans) into a vampire so that he can keep the peace in Transylvania and stop Mehmet (Dominic Cooper) from taking 1,000 boys for his army, including Vlad’s own son. Hit the jump to check out the very first Dracula Untold clip.  The movie also stars Sarah Gadon, Art Parkinson and Noah Huntley, and is due to hit theaters on October 10th. Via Metro.   Here’s the official synopsis for Dracula Untold: Almost an entire century after the world’s first cinematic introduction to Dracula placed audiences under his haunting spell, the studio that »

Tiff 2014 Review – The Imitation Game (2014)

9 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Imitation Game, 2014

Directed by Morten Tyldum.

Starring Benedict CumberbatchKeira KnightleyMatthew GoodeMark Strong, Charles DanceAllen Leech and Tuppence Middleton.

 

Synopsis:

English mathematician and logician, Alan Turing, helps crack the Enigma code during World War II.

A break and enter to the house of an eccentric Cambridge Mathematics professor whose off-handed and demeaning manner about the crime raises the suspicions of a 1950s British police detective; he goes about conducting an investigation expecting to uncover some treasonable activities but instead uncovers something else.

The man called into question is Alan Turing who was bullied at private school but was befriended and mentored by a classmate during the 1920s.  A similar relationship develops for Turing in the 1940s with the sole female member of the Bletchley Park code breaking team.  The period biopic shifts seamlessly between the three different decades, and an image develops of Alan Turing as »

'The Imitation Game' (2014) Movie Review

9 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Beyond the professional accomplishments of Alan Turing depicted within the narrative of The Imitation Game, it's the way the film deals with his homosexuality, in a time where homosexuality was illegal in Britain, that makes it much more than your standard biopic. With a screenplay by Graham Moore, based on the book "Alan Turing: The Enigma", director Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) balances multiple timelines with precision, bouncing from Turing's childhood in the late '20s, to code cracking Germany's Enigma code during World War II and finally where the story begins, 1952, as Turing falls under the questioning eye of a police detective. Using these three narratives, Tyldum grants us access to specific turning points in Turing's life with Benedict Cumberbatch inhabiting the genius mathematician and cryptographer with what may be the best performance of his career. In a film entrenched in secrets, Cumberbatch is forced to play things close to the vest, »

The Imitation Game Review [Tiff 2014]

8 September 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Pay attention,” Benedict Cumberbatch’s Alan Turing demands at the end of the long monologue that opens The Imitation Game, though it’s difficult to tell why. For one, the threatening intonation sounds like leftover scenery chewing from his Khan in last year’s Star Trek, and though The Imitation Game does demonstrate what a man of the future the real Alan Turing was, the portrait crafted is of a much gentler man. More importantly, it’s odd a film would request its audience to be so attentive to detail, when The Imitation Game itself cares little for any details it doesn’t spell out for you in capital letters.

Rotors of an encryption machine transition to the wheels moving Nazi tank treads, and a snubbed cigarette replaces a U-boat torpedo the moment before impact. A zinger-heavy script makes dialogue sound as though every punchline should be accompanied by the »

Russian Cinema: Local Pics Up VFX Ante

8 September 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Russian audiences have an enthusiasm for 3D, large formats and visual effects, says Paul Heth, CEO of leading Russian exhibition chain Karo.

That lines up Russians with audiences in much of the world, where such spectacle films lead the box office.

But their hunger for such films has forced Russian producers and visual effects companies to step up or risk losing out to Hollywood imports.

But while other territories are lagging in that area, Russian companies are stepping up. It’s not just Hollywood’s big-budget, 3D, vfx-heavy tentpoles thriving at the box office, but Russian spectacles as well.

Some of the biggest Russian box office hits in the past year have been 3D vfx pics with budgets far above average for local productions. World War II epic “Stalingrad 3D,” for example, grossed 1.66 billion rubles ($45.8 million) in Russia, and fantasy horror “Viy 3D” took $33.2 million.

'Imitation Game' writer has wanted to tell Alan Turing's story since he was 14

7 September 2014 4:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles — The last four years have been a whirlwind for screenwriter Graham Moore. After seizing the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tell the story of a childhood hero, his script based on Alan Turing's life — "The Imitation Game" — lit up the industry, landing at the top of The Black List (an annual compendium of hot unpublished screenplays). He was given the rare opportunity as a writer to see production all the way through as an Executive Producer, moving with the project in and out of the studio system, and in the mountains of Colorado last week, he witnessed the film catch fire after finally premiering at the Telluride Film Festival. Now the 32-year-old finds himself working alongside directors like Michael Mann and Marc Forster, living the dream after having the best possible alignment of stars on his first major industry experience. With "The Imitation Game" set for another big coming out »

Game of Thrones star Charles Dance channeled the intensity of his TV character, Tywin Lannister, in a hilarious promotional video for the 2015 World Cup of Rugby in England. Speaking to a group of rugby players, he shouts in a deep, booming voice, "Let's dare to dream, let's dig deep . . . We're going to grasp this moment with both hands, stand tall, stand proud, stand together, and this will be the biggest and the finest and the most glorious Rugby World Cup ever!" You can't help but feel inspired by his pump-up speech, which sounds an awful lot like Tywin leading the charge at King's Landing.
