Jude Law filmed scenes for the upcoming film Genius in Manchester, England, on Sunday with his costars Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.

Jude Law Films 'Genius'

Law, 41, was costumed for the day on set in a brown overcoat over a tan button down and patterned tie, and appeared to be sporting a dark brown wig. Law was channeling his writerly character, American author Thomas Clayton Wolfe. Firth has been tapped to play Wolfe's literary agent and major protagonist of Genius, Max Perkins. Kidman, meanwhile, will be playing American costume designer Aline Bernstein.

On Sunday, the actors were filming in Manchester's Northern Quarter, which had been turned into 1900s New York for the purposes of the film shoot. The area, which boasts old mill buildings and cobblestone streets, was adorned with old-fashioned shop fronts to complete the throwback look, reported the Daily Mirror.

Since we last heard from Australian YouTube prankster Michael Shanks, the young talent has been hired on to direct music videos for Guy Pearce - really, see one here - but happily his time spent singing movie stars has not kept the director of Time Trap and other oddities from continuing down his odd little path.And here's his latest micro-opus, an Old West showdown that knows full well the power of an intimidating stare.

Iron Man 3 Storyboard Art Reveals Happy Hogan Was Supposed to Die

16 October 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

An interesting series of storyboard art that was done for Iron Man 3 has surfaced, and it shows us an alternate version of Jon Favreau's Happy Hogan going up against the villain Savin (James Badge Dale). In this version, Happy was supposed to die. The storyboard art was done by Dan Sweetman, and in the end I'm glad that they didn't kill off the character because I love Happy! I wish Marvel would introduce him into the rest of the universe. The character should be in these Avengers films for sure! Here's a full description of the alternate scene from Cbm:

After Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) meets Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) at Stark Industries, Happy Hogan, who is the Head of Security, decides to follow Killian's "Shifty" bodyguard/henchman Savin. This leads Happy to the Chinese theater in Los Angeles, where he witnesses Savin delivering a batch of Extremis »

Iron Man 3: Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) Was Supposed To Die!

16 October 2014 3:24 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) meets Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) at Stark Industries, Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), who is the Head of Security, decides to follow Killian's "Shifty" bodyguard/henchman Savin (James Badge Dale). This leads Happy to the Chinese theater in Los Angeles, where he witnesses Savin delivering a batch of Extremis medicine in a briefcase to Jack Taggart (Ashley Hamilton). When Savin walks away Happy intentionally bumps Taggart, knocking the briefcase to the ground and it opens. Happy pockets one of the metal objects from the briefcase as he helps Taggart collect the contents that spilled out. When Happy begins to walk away with his prize he is quickly confronted by Savin. Happy punches Savin right in the kisser but Savin is unfazed by the blow. Savin's face glows red, which catches Happy by surprise. Savin then grabs Happy's arm and tosses. At this point Taggart begins to »

"The Rover" Will Satisfy Those Who Find "Walking Dead" Too Cheery

15 October 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

You must really love that car, darling.

Well, if he doesn't, then he must be very bored. That said, there doesn't seem to be much to do in Australia ten years after "the collapse". Everyone in The Rover (2014), from writer-director David Michôd, just seems to survive (until they don't). There's money--America's monetary supremacy survives the collapse, fear not--but nothing to spend it on out there in the boonies where the film takes place. So, when a man (Guy Pearce) gets his car stolen by some bank robbers, he goes after them. He wants his car back. Then, when he loses track of these robbers, fate brings Rey (Robert Pattinson), brother of one of the thieves, into our hero's hands. I say hero. When he shoots the fellow selling him a gun, even the word "protagonist" loses its aptitude. Lesson #1: Don't sell someone a gun with ammunition inside it.

Bedtime Stories

14 October 2014 2:36 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Adam Sandler plays Skeeter Bronson, a hotel handyman who finds that the bedtime stories he tells to his niece and nephew magically come true. The upshot is that Skeeter finds himself in the Old West, ancient Greece, outer space…and even working his way into the affections of Keri Russell. A stellar cast also includes Russell Brand as his dysfunctional buddy, Guy Pearce as Skeeter’s snooty rival and Richard Griffiths as a germaphobic hotel boss. »

The Rover Blu-ray Review

13 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There is probably a sizable percentage of people who hate Robert Pattinson for no good reason.  The Twilight star became an intense object of affection and lust for those team Edward, and for anyone who witnessed that obsessive fandom (especially those who saw it up close), it can be off-putting even if it bears little on the person’s talents.  Considering that Pattinson starred in five of the biggest movies of the last decade, he’s made some of the smartest career moves of anyone who has been suddenly thrust into superstardom: He’s now making an effort to work with talented auteurs in roles that only trade on his fame in the sense that he helps get the movies financed.  Not only has he made two movies with David Cronenberg, he also starred in the David Michod film The Rover.  And as for the latter, he’s excellent in it. »

The Rover Blu-Ray Review

13 October 2014 12:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As harsh and unsparing as the sun-scorched no man’s land of its setting, The Rover arrives as one of the most hypnotic post-apocalyptic road movies since the first Mad Max. That’s high praise, to be sure, but it’s easy to understand why it’s justifiable when one considers the involvement of writer-director David Michôd, whose Animal Kingdom was 2010′s single most breathtaking debut. Here, Michôd proves again why he’s one of the most exciting filmmakers on the scene, suffusing each frame of The Rover with an intoxicating undercurrent of dread.

Credit is also due to stars Guy Pearce, whose ruthless drifter could teach Clint Eastwood a thing or two, and Robert Pattinson, who successfully busts out of heartthrob purgatory with a performance that’s at once compulsively watchable and utterly heartbreaking. Even without the rich atmosphere, Pearce and Pattinson would be worth the price of admission. »

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

Watch the trailer for Russell Crowe's epically-sized directorial debut, 'The Water Diviner'

1 October 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Go big or go home": A skateboarder mindset, a Sarah Palin slogan, the name of a "Parks & Recreation" episode," and now, the guiding mantra of Russell Crowe's directorial debut, "The Water Diviner." Via the magic of Twitter, Crowe debuted the first trailer for the war drama, a shiny blockbuster reminiscent of the high-impact Hollywood productions that shaped the actor's career. When it's not blowing up World War I battlefields, it's swelling with emotional power strings. Written by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios (both involved with Guy Pearce's "Jack Irish" movies), "The Water Diviner" follows a father from New Zealand who flocks to Turkey to find his two sons, gone missing after the 1915 Battle of Gallipoli. Working with remaining troops (including an Australian Liuetentn played by Jai Courtney), Crowe's Connor burrows into the mystery, which appears to flash back and forth between his search and his son's time in the trenches. »

Kirk (William Shatner) and Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) had been written into the script for the upcoming Star Trek 3. Shatner quickly responded via social media: "Nobody has contacted me," but then producer J.J. Abrams called to ask if he was interested. Shatner said, in part: "Yeah, if it is meaningful." Now we're hoping that...

First Image From Sci-Fi Romance Equals

28 September 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Speaking of Guy Pearce as we recently were, here's news of another new film in which he features. His is a supporting role in Equals, the sci-fi adventure romance starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult. There's no sign of him in this first image however, which features only the two star cross'd principals, silhouetted against a chilly blue background.The official Equals synposis gives us a future when emotions are a thing of the past and a new breed of humans (the Equals of the title) live in Spock-like harmony. When a disease starts activating emotions in some subjects, they find themselves disappeared by the ruling regime. And when Silas (Hoult) becomes infected and realizes Nia (Stewart) has emotions too, they join forces to go on the run.If that's all sounding vaguely familiar it's because, as revealed earlier this year, Equals is an updated Ya version of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. »

First Look at Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in 'Equals'

27 September 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Drake Doremus made a bit of a splash with Like Crazy in 2011. His 2013 film, Breathe In, however, went more-or-less unnoticed. His next film won't likely be so incognito as it stars X-Men: Days of Future Past star Nicholas Holt and Kristen Stewart. The film is Equals and the first picture from the futuristic love story has arrived courtesy of Variety. In the film, Hoult and Stewart play characters in a future where emotions have been wiped out, but viral outbreak threatens to bring them back. Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver co-star in the film, which is being produced by Scott Free Films and sounds like a film that will obviously premiere at Sundance in January. »

First Look: Kristen Stewart & Nicholas Hoult In Drake Doremus’ Sci-Fi Film ‘Equals’

27 September 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s always fascinating to see a filmmaker progress and grow. Drake Doremus’ early indie films like “Spooner” and “Douchebag” were lumped in with the lo-fi mumblecore movement, but he quickly expanded beyond that realm with the touching long-distance romance “Like Crazy,” a film that introduced many to Felicity Jones and even featured an early role by Jennifer Lawrence. While maintaining his free-form style—a lot of improvisation built around loosely visualized scenes—his approach is a method, not a madness, and each film grows with confidence. His last picture, “Breathe In,” illustrated how heavyweights like Guy Pearce and Amy Ryan effortlessly fit into this exploratory form. He even discovered another new stand-out in Mackenzie Davis. For his next trick, Doremus is attempting something very different, a traditionally scripted sci-fi film, and one with a terrific cast. Starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, plus Guy Pearce, Jacki Weaver Kate Lyn Sheil and Toby. »

First Look at Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in 'Equals'

26 September 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ridley Scott's Scott Free Films has released the first photo from Equals, featuring stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult.

Directed by Drake Doremus (Like Crazy, Breathe In), Equals is set in the future, where all emotions have been eliminated, although a viral disease can cause them to return. Take a look at the image below, then read on to see what both Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult had to say about the story.

During a press event last month, Kristen Stewart said that she believes the plot, written by Nathan Parker (Moon), somewhat mirrors her own life.

"I'm definitely not afraid of 'feels.' My life revolves around it actually. Finding the balance between the head and the heart is important but I've always been very driven by the gut. Every thought or articulated emotion starts in shapes and colors and putting your finger on that is cool, but it's not necessary. »
