Sherlock Holmes: 10 offbeat takes on the Great Detective

29 June 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From spoofs to point-and-click adventure games, here are 10 of the most memorable unusual incarnations of Sherlock Holmes...

We don’t know a great deal about the content of the 90-minute Sherlock special set to air later this year, but one thing has emerged from the set photos and tantalising titbits of information we’ve seen so far. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson will be in nineteenth-century garb, pitching them back into the setting of the legendary detective’s original adventures: 1895, to be precise. Why that happens is as yet unclear, but all will be revealed.

For those still craving their Holmes fix in the meantime, the new film Mr. Holmes offers us Ian McKellen’s take on the character, musing upon an old case as he looks back on his long career from the vantage point of retirement. Jonny Lee Miller’s ultra-modern, Us-based Sherlock will be entering his fourth »

Adaptation Of The Good Spy Will Shine A Light On The Shadows Of The CIA

25 June 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The mysteries of America’s foremost intelligence agency are fertile ground for storytellers, but the truth is always more powerful than fiction – particularly in the case of the 2014 biography The Good Spy: The Life And Death Of Robert Ames. Now, producing super-team Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes (Flight, Catch Me If You Can, Minority Report, Road To Perdition, the Men In Black franchise) have snapped up the rights to The Good Spy, and are planning to deliver a dramatic adaptation of it to the big screen.

Robert Ames was a CIA operative and the intelligence agency’s Near East Director. He allegedly made the first high-level infiltration of the Plo during his career, and was renowned for building productive and effective relationships with Arab intelligence figures. These bonds were seen to hold the key to lasting peace – but those hopes were dashed when he was killed in the suicide »

Self/Less: New Featurette Explores the Side Effects of Immortality

24 June 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Focus Features has released a new featurette and clip for Tarsem Singh‘s latest, Self/less, a psychological science fiction thriller about a man dying from cancer (Ben Kingsley) who decides to transfer his consciousness into the body of a healthy, younger man (Ryan Reynolds). The procedure works, but he soon comes to realize that “immortality has some side effects.” I'm intrigued by Self/less. The ramifications a man faces when he tries to beat god always makes for solid ground to build a riveting science fiction premise on, and Tarsem is a compelling director with an eccentric track record, so I'm always intrigued to see what he'll do next. Stylistically, Self/less looks quite restrained for the director, who can occasionally get so immersed in his visuals that narrative falls by the wayside. When he's at his best we get The Fall, at his worst, Immortals (which I actually »

Exclusive: Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley fight for control in the new Self/Less spot!

23 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

We’ve got the Exclusive world premiere of a new clip from Self/Less, starring Ryan Reynolds, Ben Kingsley and Matthew Goode.

Ever wondered what it would be like to be someone else? Or more specifically, to be yourself, but to have another body? If you have, you’re in luck: this is exactly the concept that next month’s Self/Less tackles.

Ben Kingsley plays a wealthy dying man who undergoes an experimental procedure that places his consciousness into the body of a healthy, younger man. Naturally, the host body (played by Ryan Reynolds) fights back, essentially creating a two-men-in-one-body scenario.

Matthew Goode stars as an employee of the organization performing the procedure, who fights to keep his organization’s intents private. Michelle Dockery, Natalie Martinez, and Victor Garber round out the cast of what is sure to be a unique and interesting look at the concept of the »

‘Stonehearst Asylum’ Blu-ray Review

22 June 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jim Sturgess, Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Brendan GleesonDavid Thewlis, Jason Flemyng, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Sinéad Cusack, Edmund Kingsley, Ciara Flynn, Christopher Fulford | Written by Joe Gangemi | Directed by Brad Anderson

If you were told about a film based on an Edgar Allen Poe short story with stars including Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley and Brendan Gleeson I’d be surprised if your interest wasn’t peeked.  Stoneheart Asylum (aka Eliza Graves) is just that… based on The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether by Poe it tells the tale of an Asylum where not all is as it seems.

When Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess) a medical school graduate arrives at Stonehearst Asylum he finds himself transfixed by Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale) a patient supposedly suffering from “Hysteria.”  Working under Dr. Silas Lamb (Ben Kingsley) he finds himself impressed with the doctor’s unconventional methods of treatment. »

15 June 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, but thanks to The Playlist we’ve got a new batch of images from the film, which shows off its all-star cast including Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Wes Bently and Teresa Palmer; check them out here…

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. »

Self/Less Clip: Matthew Goode Offers Ben Kingsley the Best of the Human Experience

12 June 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

What if you got the chance to live forever? Would you take it? That's the opportunity Matthew Goode's character offers Ben Kingsley in Tarsem Singh's latest, Self/Less. Kingsley plays a wealthy man dying of cancer who agrees to have his consciousness transferred into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). All is well until Kingsley's character starts to uncover the truth about his new body and Phoenix Biogenic, the company behind the operation that'll do anything to keep the details of the procedure top secret. Gramercy Pictures just shared the first clip from the film and while it's probably a smart move to begin by conveying key information about the procedure, I do kind of wish the first clip showed off more of Singh's signature style and mind-blowing visuals. You can check out the first Self/Less clip for yourself below. The film also stars Natalie Martinez, »
