Turn renewed by AMC for its fourth and final season

26 July 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Jul 27, 2016

AMC’s historical drama Turn: Washington’s Spies received a renewal for a fourth season that wraps up the entire series...

Fans of the AMC show Turn: Washington’s Spies just received what would have to be double-edged bayonet on their musket. The basic cable giant’s dramatic serial depiction of the American Revolution’s famed Culper Spy Ring just received a renewal for Season 4. However, said renewal also comes with a crucial caveat in the bittersweet news that the upcoming new season will be its very last.

AMC officially announced that the final turn for Turn will ultimately occur at the conclusion of the freshly ordered Season 4, set for a 10-episode run that will air in 2017. While the series hasn’t quite been the ubiquitous ratings juggernaut as network peers such as The Walking Dead, it has developed a strong fan following, with the »

‘Turn’ Set to End After Four Seasons on AMC

26 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC has renewed Revolutionary War drama “Turn: Washington’s Spies” for a fourth and final season, the network announced Tuesday. The 10-episode final run is scheduled to premiere in 2017.

Season three of “Turn” ended June 26. The series averaged 1.2 million viewers per episode and nearly 600,000 adults 25-54 for season three.

“‘Turn: Washington’s Spies’ has always had a lofty goal – to tell the real story of the American Revolution from the ground up. To capture the truth about the choice regular people had to make to support what has become the United States of America. It frequently involved turning against friends and family, and it always involved risking everything,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. “Craig Silverstein, Barry Josephson, and their incredible team introduced us to the Culper Ring who have reminded us that without human intelligence, the war may have had a very different outcome.

Idris Elba thinks he’s too old to play James Bond

23 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before names like Tom Hiddleston, Jamie Bell, Sam Riley and Aidan Turner entered the mix, it seemed like Idris Elba was the clear frontrunner to succeed Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond. He was the choice of then-Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal, the bookmakers’ favourite, and had the backing of former 007 Pierce Brosnan (although not so much Roger Moore, apparently).

Elba has previously said that he’d accept the role of the super spy if it was offered to him, although during a new interview on Good Morning America, the British star has suggested that he feels he may be too old.

“I keep saying if it were to happen it would be the will of a nation because there hasn’t been any talks between me and the studio about any of tha. But everywhere I go people want that to happen, so…. But if I’m really honest man, »

Is Idris Elba Too Old to Play James Bond?

22 July 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even before last year's Spectre came out, there were rumors that movie would be Daniel Craig's last as 007. While it still hasn't been confirmed that the actor is officially out, there have been a slew of rumors swirling around a few potential candidates for James Bond 25, one of whom being Idris Elba. In fact, there has been a sizable grass-roots movement that has built up around his potential casting, but during a new interview earlier today, Idris Elba revealed that he has never entered into official talks for the role, while dropping another bombshell.

The talk of Idris Elba becoming the next James Bond first surfaced back in late 2014, when leaked emails revealed that then-Sony Pictures president Amy Pascal wanted the actor to play the next 007. Since then, several fans have been clamoring for this casting, but, during a new interview with Good Morning America today (via YouTube »

See Josh Hutcherson’s (Amazing!) ‘Spider-Man’ Audition

22 July 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Just before Andrew Garfield booked the role of Spidey in big-screen Marvel Entertainment reboot “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2010, rumors were flying about the shortlist of actors tapped for the role: Jamie Bell, Alden Ehrenreich, Frank Dillane, Ose Hayble, and Anton Yelchin were among them.  But Josh Hutcherson of “Hunger Games” fame went so far as to record an elaborately choreographed sizzle reel, full of real flips and high-flying kicks, for producers to consider. The comic book–loving actor, only 17 at the time, has the youthful looks and flair for awkwardness required of Peter Parker; what many didn’t know was that he also had the action hero bona fides. Allegedly staged by stunt and fight choreographer Larnell Stovall, the extended fight sequence is so well produced, it’s easy to imagine Hutcherson’s spidey senses tingling.

Steven Spielberg says Peter Jackson will still direct the Tintin sequel

5 July 2016 5:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2007 it was announced that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson were teaming up to bring Herge’s The Adventures of Tintin to the big screen, with Spielberg directing a first movie, Jackson helming the sequel, and the duo teaming up to round out the trilogy by co-directing the third.

Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin arrived in 2011 and was met with positive reviews and a decent global box office of $374 million. However, by that point, Jackson was back in Middle-earth developing what ultimately became a trilogy of Hobbit movies, and talk of the sequel seemed to fizzle out.

Well, Spielberg has now confirmed that the second movie is still in the works, with Jackson remaining attached as director, although he’s set to helm a mystery project for Amblin first:

“Peter was so busy with The Hobbit that it took him away from Tintin and he’s doing another film for my company now, »

Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins’ new thriller Misconduct grosses just £97 at UK box office

8 June 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After it received a chilly reception from critics last week, the new thriller Misconduct has had one of the worst openings ever at the UK box office, grossing less than £100. Yes, £100.

The film, directed by Shintaro Shimosawa, stars Academy Award winners Al Pacino (Heat) and Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World) and was made for roughly $11 million. However, after being released in UK cinemas last Friday on just five screens, the film has so far grossed just £97 for an average of just £19.40 per location.

Misconduct joins the ranks of some of the UK’s lowest grossing films which includes last year’s Momentum, which despite featuring Morgan Freeman, grossed just £46 from 10 screens. Uma Thurman-starrer Motherhood earned just £88 in 2009, while The Chumscrubber, which starred Ralph Fiennes and Jamie Bell, ended with just £36.

Toby Kebbell Says There’s a ‘Much Darker' Cut of 'Fantastic Four' We’ll Never See

8 June 2016 5:22 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

TheDailyBeast.com recently interviewed actor Toby Kebbell for the fantasy-adventure film, "Warcraft", starring Travis Fimmel ("Vikings") and Paula Patton ("Precious"). During the interview, Kebbell talked about his previous films such as 20th Century Fox's  "Fantastic Four" starring Miles Teller ("Whiplash"), Michael B. Jordan ("Creed"), Kate Mara ("The Martian"), and Jamie Bell ("Billy Elliot").

Kebbell talked about director Josh Trank's darker, grittier cut of the film saying:

"I tell you, the honest truth is [Trank] did cut a great film that you’ll never see. That is a shame. A much darker version, and you’ll never see it."

The actor revealed that he didn't take part in the aforementioned reshoots for the film saying at one point someone else portrayed Doctor Doom near the end of the film saying:

"I played Doom in three points: Walking down a corridor, killing the doctor and getting into the time machine, and lying on the bench. »

A Darker "Fantastic Four" Cut Existed?

7 June 2016 9:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

While we will never truly know about the debacle behind-the-scenes of last year's "Fantastic Four" reboot, what is widely known is that studio 20th Century Fox demaned reshoots and additional filming of a whole bunch of the Josh Trank-directed movie including much of the second half.

What wasn't clear at the time is how much of the movie was completed before the reshoots went forward, but today one of the film's stars suggests it was more than you might think. Toby Kebbell, who played Doctor Doom in the film, tells The Daily Beast that an alternate and much better version of the film actually exists:

"I tell you, the honest truth is [Josh Trank] did cut a great film that you'll never see. That is a shame. A much darker version, and you'll never see it."

The only other hint of such a cut came from Trank himself who said he'd »

Fantastic Four Actor Says There's a Great Cut We'll Never See

7 June 2016 5:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There has been a lot of talk about how Batman V Superman is somehow a box office bomb, but it hasn't even been a year since Fox's Fantastic Four reboot reminded us what a true box office bomb actually is. It is one thing to not quite meet very lofty expectations, but it is another to have a huge superhero movie with a huge cast and marketing to barely make back its production budget even with international box office factored in.

A lot has been made of the failure that was the Fantastic Four reboot, which was absolutely panned by critics and currently sits at an abysmal 9 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. However, in a recent interview with The Daily Beast, actor Toby Kebbell who played Doctor Doom in the film, claims that a much better version of the film actually exists. Here is what he had to say.

Tom Hiddleston Probably Won't Be James Bond

7 June 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's been lots of press lately about potential replacements for Daniel Craig in the James Bond series, with Tom Hiddleston's name at the top of many lists of potential heirs to the 007 throne. But according to Hiddleston himself, the likelihood of him assuming the Bond mantle is apparently pretty low.

Hiddleston dropped the disappointing news during a panel discussion at Wizard World Philadelphia last weekend, where he appeared alongside Chris Hemsworth to discuss "Thor: Ragnarok." But when the moderator asked Hiddleston if he wanted to talk about anything else -- say, announce a certain casting in a certain spy franchise -- the actor had to admit that the possibility didn't look so certain after all.

"I'm sorry to disappoint you, everybody," Hiddleston told the excited crowd, whose passionate screams quickly devolved into cries of disbelief. "I don't think that announcement is coming. But I'm very gratified to hear the enthusiasm. »
