Keanu Reeves, Adrianne Palicki on ‘John Wick,’ Dogs and Stunts

23 October 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Keanu Reeves is back.

Reeves joined Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Lance Reddick and helmers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch on the red carpet at the Arclight Hollywood for a screening of “John Wick” Wednesday night.

The film follows Reeves as Wick, a deadly assassin – he’s described in the film as the killer they call to kill the bogeyman – in retirement who loses his wife, dog and car all in the span of a few days, bringing him out of retirement, to the detriment of anyone and everyone who crosses his path. The character’s true nature is never in doubt in the film.

“He’s a total badass,” Winters said.

Reeves saw in the character something of a classic action hero.

“He’s a mythical assassin, but he’s put that all away for love,” Reeves said.

Wick isn’t the only hardboiled character in the film, as Palicki’s character, »

Jamie Mathieson interview: writing Doctor Who

21 October 2014 5:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The writer of Mummy On The Orient Express and Flatline, Jamie Mathieson, talks us through his Doctor Who experience....

Even before the credits had rolled on his second Doctor Who episode, Flatline, people were asking if writer Jamie Mathieson would be back for series 9 of the show. But Mathieson's path to Doctor Who goes right the way back to his original pitch in 2004, via a feature film screenplay (Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel, his writing on Being Human and a further, unsuccessful Who pitch.

We caught up with Mathieson, once Mummy On The Orient Express and Flatline - his first two Doctor Who adventures - had screened. And he took us through his Doctor Who experience...

You've said before that you arrived at your Doctor Who pitch meeting with four episodes outlined. First thing then: what's a Doctor Who pitch meeting actually like?

A Doctor Who pitch meeting is fairly banal really. »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Four

The Digital Era: Real-time Films From 2000 To Today

40 years before, in 1960, lighter cameras enabled a cinéma vérité-flavored revolution in street realism. By 2000, new digital cameras suggested a whole new set of promises, including telling stories that would have been unimaginable within minimum budgets for features even ten years before. In 2000, film purists warned that digital still didn’t look as good as celluloid, but that didn’t stop at least three innovative filmmakers from boldly going where no filmmaker had gone before. Mike Figgis’ Timecode (2000) was the first star-supported (Salma Hayek, Stellan Skarsgard, Holly Hunter, among many others) single-shot project since Rope, underlining that earlier film’s timelessness. If Run Lola Run could do one story three times, then Timecode would do three or four stories one time: the movie is four separate ninety-minute shots shown all at the same time, each in one quadrant of the screen. Where do you look? »

‘Ghostbusters 3′ a Go with Paul Feig attached

9 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following rumors from back in August, Sony Pictures knows exactly who it’s gonna call for a Ghostbusters sequel: Bridesmaids Director Paul Feig.

Feig initially suggested that Ghostbusters 3 would be in the works with a female-led cast, and now he’s confirmed via Twitter that he will be directing the film along with his writer on The Heat Katie Dippold penning the screenplay. Dan Aykroyd and the original’s director Ivan Reitman will be on hand as producers.

Ghostbusters 3 has been a conversation topic for years, with hopes that Bill Murray would finally reprise his role as Peter Venkman and a script being in various states of completion. All of that died down slightly with the passing of Harold Ramis back in February, but the success of films like The Heat, The Fault in Our Stars, Lucy, Maleficent and several other female-led blockbusters has rekindled that excitement as a no-brainer reboot. »

A New Image For ‘Fast And Furious 7′ Lands

9 October 2014 12:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We all wait in huge anticipation for James Wan’s Fast And Furious 7, which will finally hit cinemas on the 3rd of April next year.

We are promised a trailer very soon; in a month’s time according to the film’s official Facebook page, but for now, we’ve been served a new image of Vin Diesel in the film which sadly will be co-star Paul Walker’s last.

No idea as to what happens plot wise as yes, but we are guessing it’s some kind of revenge tale centred around the team and a new villain played by Jason Statham, out for blood for the death of his brother.

Wan directs Diesel, Walker, Kurt Russell, Tyrese Gibson, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Jason Statham et al.

Here’s that new image.

The Expendables 3 Blu-ray Includes an Extended Unrated Cut of the Film With 5 Minutes of Additional Footage

8 October 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There was a lot of griping from the fan base when it was revealed that The Expendables 3 would be rated PG-13, so you guys should take heart in the fact that the upcoming Blu-ray release of the film will indeed include an Unrated Cut that is five minutes longer than the theatrical version.  Will the new cut contain all of the action and intensity you'd expect from a more mature rating?  It's too early to tell, but there's at least a sliver of hope for the fans. Hit the jump for more on The Expendables 3 Blu-ray.  The film (along with the unrated cut) arrives in a Blu-ray combo pack (with Digital HD) on November 25th.  Sylvester Stallone, Mel GibsonHarrison FordWesley SnipesArnold SchwarzeneggerKelsey GrammerAntonio BanderasJason StathamJet LiDolph LundgrenRandy CoutureTerry CrewsKellan LutzRonda RouseyVictor Ortiz, and Glen Powell all star. »

‘Ghostbusters’ Femme-Centric Revamp Reunites Paul Feig With His ‘Heat’ Scribe

8 October 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Well, that femme-centric Ghostbusters reboot is a reality, and upon some reflection, the notion of chicks chasing ghosts is starting to grow on this caveman. Paul Feig is officially aboard to execute his idea to relaunch a franchise that Amy Pascal has salivated 0ver for years dominated by an endless wait for Bill Murray to reprise his Peter Venkman, or at least to acknowledge he had read the sequel script. My pal Borys Kit scooped that Feig will be helped by Katie Dippold, his collaborator on the Melissa McCarthy-Sandra Bullock starrer The Heat. Feig’s potential participation cropped up in August, and I must admit, I reacted like a chauvinist in wanting to preserve the spirit of the original, one of my favorite guy films.

Feig, along with Judd Apatow, has done great things to prove that women can be ferociously funny — Feig in the ballsy comedies Bridesmaids and The Heat. »

Tom Brady's Wife Gisele Bündchen's Sexy Posters on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Wall

5 October 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's poster has been on walls of young prospective football players' room for years and it appears the New England Patriots Qb wife Gisele Bündchen has the same effect on aspiring young models. When Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was coming up in the world of modeling, she had posters of her favorite female models on her wall, including Brady's wife Gisele along with Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer. Rosie, 27, who is dating Jason Statham, admits she's never been one to have pictures of hunky men stuck up around her room because having snaps of supermodels, instead, provided her with inspiration. Speaking to Us Weekly in an earlier interview, she said: "I didn't really have boys on my bedroom wall. I've always loved fashion, so I always had pictures of fashion campaigns and supermodels on my wall. Gisele Bündchen, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer »

Aubrey Plaza interview: Life After Beth, jazz, zombies, Scotland

1 October 2014 2:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We catch up with the star of rom-zom-com Life After Beth, Aubrey Plaza, to talk zombies, smooth jazz and Scotland...

Unless you’re Sherman Howard, not many actors get to play a zombie and still talk of their character. Aubrey Plaza gets to do both in Life After Beth, a zom-rom-com as deep as Daniel Radcliffe’s eyes.

With a reputation for deadpan, restrained performances (most notably as April Ludgate in Parks And Recreation), Beth gives Plaza a chance to get impressively unhinged.

Den Of Geek interviewed her during the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where we both left a lot of awkward pauses.

What’s your favourite zombie movie?

…I like all zombie movies. Uh…Night Of The Living Dead. That’s my favourite one.

Have you ever been to Edinburgh for the Fringe?

No. I…someone…people lied to me and told me the Fringe Festival was going on right now, »

Luke Evans interview: Dracula Untold, The Hobbit, Statham

1 October 2014 12:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Duncan talks to the star of Dracula Untold, Luke Evans, about becoming a vampire, being a Bowman in The Hobbit, and working with Statham...

Nb: This interview contains mild spoilers for Dracula Untold and Fast & Furious 6. The spoiler for Dracula Untold is marked out, so you can avoid it if you want to.

Dracula Untold sees Luke Evans taking his well-deserved lead role in Universal’s big screen re-launch of the most infamous of all vampires, after building up a fine body of work over the course of several years that’s encompassed two of the biggest cinematic franchises to date in two thirds of The Hobbit trilogy and Fast & Furious 6.

In a relatively short time he’s already played two Greek gods, as both Apollo and Zeus in Clash Of The Titans and Immortals respectively, worked with Ridley Scott on Robin Hood, made a standout of his »

Alex Winter interview: Grand Piano, Bill & Ted, Deep Web

29 September 2014 12:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director, actor and former Bill & Ted star talks about his latest film, Grand Piano, his documentary Deep Web, and lots more...

Although perhaps best known for his roles in two Bill & Ted films and The Lost Boys, Alex Winter is equally at home behind the camera, having spent the last two decades working predominantly as a director – from the cult classic Freaked, through various music videos, adverts and movies, up to his recent documentary Downloaded (which tells the story of Shawn Fanning and Napster) and the upcoming, Kickstarted-funded Deep Web.

Recently, however, he’s taken a rare step back into acting, appearing alongside Elijah Wood and John Cusack as a villainous usher in Eugenio Mira’s stylish thriller Grand Piano. We caught up with Alex down the line from his new home base in La, to discuss his work on both sides of the actor-director divide.

So I guess the first question, »

Film Review: ‘Good People’

26 September 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite the proverbial suggestion of the title, bad things mostly happen to less-than-upstanding citizens in “Good People,” a capable crime caper that nonetheless disappoints, considering the flavorful talent involved. With off-kilter Danish genre specialist Henrik Ruben Genz (“Terribly Happy”) making his English-language debut from a script by “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” writer Kelly Masterson, it’d be reasonable to expect a few more blackened twists in the tale of a hard-up Yank couple (James Franco and Kate Hudson) dragged into the Cockney underworld after pocketing a stash of dirty money from their deceased tenant. Both stars are in agreeable if uncharacteristically muted form, doing little to distinguish Genz’s pic from any amount of formula-following filler in the same B-movie ballpark; commercially, “VOD People” is the more apt moniker for this multi-platform release.

If nothing else, “Good People” serves as a relatively novel entry in Franco’s »
