Video Games That Should Be Movies

30 March 2015 3:29 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Annoyed by the poor quality of existing video game movies, we decided to take the matter into our own hands and come up with our own ideas. This is a list of what we came up with.

Earlier this month, we showed you that there are a lot of video game-based movies on their way to theaters. This surely will become a trend that will continue for the next few years. There are countless properties available to use as inspiration, and therefore, it's only a matter of time before someone figures out how to make a great video game movie. Until that time comes, we have to wait patiently. In order to occupy our minds, we asked our contributors to pick a video game that they think would make a great movie and then to create a pitch for that movie. The below list is what we came up with. »

'Hannibal' Season 3 Episode and Director Details Unveiled

24 March 2015 6:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that Season 3 of Hannibal will debut on NBC June 4. NBC revealed back in January that they were pushing the show to debut in the summer, instead of the spring like the first seasons, but it seems the extended wait will be well worth it. Series creator Bryan Fuller took to his Twitter account earlier this week to share a number of intriguing details about this upcoming season, along with the directors for four of the 13 episodes.

Bryan Fuller made all of these revelations after asking the fans on his Twitter page to vote for his earlier series Pushing Daisies in an online poll of which beloved but short-lived shows should come back. After Pushing Daisies beat out Firefly in the final round, Bryan Fuller started releasing Hannibal tidbits, first revealing that the Season 3 premiere, "Antipasto", "will take place over four different periods of time."

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies | Blu-Ray Review

24 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Hovering just under one billion dollars in worldwide gross, the final installment of Peter Jackson’s prequel trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies actually has the distinction of being the lowest grossing of the three films, though it’s quite close to 2013’s second installment, The Desolation of Smaug. Though each film has a distinctive leaning, beginning with the first installment’s predilection for overabundant exposition, followed by a mid-segment of breathless promises, and finally, a CGI explosion of endless battle sequences, its apparent that Jackson’s product was stretched beyond its narrative breaking point. To compare this to the wealth of material that supported the epic scope of his earlier Lord of the Rings trilogy simply points to the ways profit based zealotry has warped the sensibilities of mainstream film production.

Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis looks at this week’s big Blu-ray releases in the Us…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

All roads have led to this point, as they say. The final film in both The Hobbit Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations (at least for now), director Peter Jackson bids a fond farewell to Hobbits, Orcs and Wizards alike. Martin Freeman, Ian e, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily and Orlando Bloom return amongst the stellar cast, as Bilbo and friends face the final battle to save Middle-earth from the deadly Smaug.

You read what Flickering Myth contributor Alfie Nobes made of the final chapter here.

While it failed to make as much of an impact along the awards season over the last few months, Angelina Jolie’s excellent sophomore directorial effort made over $160 million »

Hannibal Season 3 Directors Include Neil Marshall & Vincenzo Natali, Four Episode Titles Revealed

23 March 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Neil Marshall and Vincenzo Natali: horror hounds know the former for his directing of The Descent, Dog Soldiers, Doomsday, and more, while the latter brought Splice, Haunter, Cube, and the "U is for Utopia" segment of ABCs of Death 2 to life on the big screen. These two creative horror genre minds bring their skills to the always dangerous dinner table of NBC's Hannibal, as showrunner Bryan Fuller has revealed Marshall and Natali directed select episodes of the third season. Also unveiled are the titles of four season three episodes, one of which should sound very familiar to fans of Thomas Harris' 1981 novel and the 2002 (second) film adaptation of the same name.

On his Twitter page, Fuller announced that Vincenzo Natali directed the first three episodes of Hannibal Season 3, respectively titled "Antipasto", "Primavera", and "Secondo." Fuller then revealed that Neil Marshall helmed "The Great Red Dragon", the eighth episode of season three. »

Hannibal Season 3 Opener Packed With Surprises; Neil Marshall And Vincenzo Natali Will Direct

23 March 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Legions of dedicated Hannibal fans have suffered an agonizing wait since the show’s season 2 finale. A bloody, savage closer, it hinted at a brand new era for the series which is set to debut its third season in a little over two months.

From the small spatter of details revealed via casting announcements and teaser posters, it’s been fun assembling a rough image of what to expect from season 3. There’s been a time-hop tease, a nudge toward territory previously broached in the movie adaptations, and the biggest drop of all from series creator Bryan Fuller, who jokingly referenced the “second biggest” character in the entire Hanni-verse making an appearance.

Fuller’s propensity for dishing the dirt on his creation continued last night over on Twitter. In a series of hint-heavy Tweets, he revealed a wealth of new info on the show’s forthcoming season 3.

On the basis of the first teaser poster, »
