Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar Preps Landing Gear For Blu-Ray Release On March 31

26 January 2015 9:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has confirmed that Interstellar will enter near-Earth orbit on March 31, when Christopher Nolan’s cerebral sci-fi will become available on Blu-Ray.

Charting the bold and ambitious endeavours of Matthew McConaughey and Co., Nolan’s latest takes place in the not-so-distant and terrifyingly believable future where humanity is clutching at straws to resolve the planet’s crippling food crisis. With unforgiving dust storms forcing the remnants of society back to their agrarian roots, a small band of survivors pull together to go boldly where no man has gone before, entering a wormhole in the hope of finding a new habitable planet to call their own. Joining McConaughey for the mind-bending journey are Anne Hathaway, Wes Bentley and two wise-cracking AI robots known as Tars and Case.

When it released last year, many moviegoers were chomping at the bit to see Interstellar in all of its grandeur, hunting down the »

'Mockingjay' Beats 'Guardians' as Biggest Movie of 2014

22 January 2015 11:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the second year in a row, Katniss Everdeen stands alone atop the box office heap. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which opened in November and is still playing in over 1,200 theaters, has earned $333.18 million as of yesterday, surpassing the Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy as the top-grossing movie of 2014. Despite already being released on Blu-ray and DVD, Guardians of the Galaxy is still playing, though it was only screening in 65 theaters nationwide last weekend, meaning its domestic take of $333.17 million won't increase too much over the next few weeks.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 still has some work to do if it wants to surpass its predecessor, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which was 2013's top movie at the box office with $424.7 million. While That movie's take was bolstered by 3D and IMAX screenings, Deadline's sources claim that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was screened in, »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 13: 'Curtain Call'

22 January 2015 4:37 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Step right up! Step right up! Here it is folks, the moment you've all been waiting for - the big finale to the greatest (or, at the very least, goriest) show on earth! That's right, "American Horror Story: Freak Show," the somewhat uneven fourth season of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's ingenious horror anthology, came to a close last night with an episode entitled "Curtain Call." It was a profoundly disturbing hour-and-17-minutes (hey, Ryan Murphy doesn't play by anyone's rules) but, in the series' constant need to shock and surprise, ended with a bittersweet tone that had us holding back tears. Yes, seriously. Shall we begin?

Dandy's Cabinet of Curiosities

After last week's episode ended with Elsa selling the freak show to that dastardly Dandy, it was anybody's guess as to how that would play out. And it did play out somewhat surprisingly - after Dandy complained about not selling enough tickets, »

The 7 Lines That Defined the American Horror Story: Freak Show Finale

22 January 2015 4:30 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Barkers rev up your engines. The Freak Show is over, and the incessant quote canonizing can begin. As another season of American Horror Story closed on Wednesday, the freak fetishist became the freak. (If that meant we got to see Finn Wittrock in his skivvies, then so be it.) But Dandy Mott's downfall was just the beginning of the curiosities delivered by Elsa Mars and her band of outsiders. Picking up short after Dandy (Wittrock) began his tyrannical rule of the side show, the anthology show's season finale was a veritable a parade of zingers and bon mots worthy of creator Ryan Murphy, »

Michael C. Hall Cast in Disney's Pete's Dragon

11 January 2015 12:03 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Dexter star Michael C. Hall will reprise his role as our favorite serial killer in Disney's live action remake of Pete's Dragon! I'm totally just kidding, but that would be pretty funny. Seriously though, the actor has joined the film project, and he joins Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas HowardWes Bentley, and newcomer Oakes Fegley as Pete.

The film revolves around Pete and his best friend Elliot, who is a dragon. The movie will not be a musical like the original 1977 version. This version will be more of a straight narrative, and the Dragon will be CGI.

David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) will direct from a script he wrote with Toby Halbrooks. I'm a big fan of Hall's work, and it is good to see that he landed another movie role.

Let's start with this super cute pic of Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac which she labelled

Feeling the power of the Nbr

Remember the other day when we linked to that article using old Streep quotes to attack Russell Crowe's ageist comments about actresses? Well, Streep went and ruined it by defending him in public. So Jessica Chastain, inbetween taking super cute photos on the Oscar campaign trail, is on it, she told People:

I think there are some incredible actresses in their 50s and 60s that are not getting opportunities in films. And for someone to say there are plenty of roles for women that age – they're not going to the movies enough."

Preach, Jessica. Preach!

9 January 2015 10:21 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just two days after Wes Bentley signed on for Disney's remake of Pete's Dragon, Dexter star Michael C. Hall has come onboard. While no character details were given, the actor joins a cast that includes newcomer Oakes Fegley as Pete, Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard and Oona Laurence. Unlike the original Pete's Dragon, which debuted in 1977, the remake will remove all of the musical elements, although it still will be a live action/CGI hybrid, with the dragon Elliot portrayed through animation.

The remake is set in a logging village instead of a fishing village like the original, focusing on Pete, who lives in the woods with his pet dragon Elliot after his parents died in a car accident. His home forest is now being threatened by a logging company. Robert Redford is playing a local resident who tells stories about dragons that no one in town believes, similar to »
