Making a disaster film set on Mount Everest probably sounded like a great idea on paper. The problem is, though, when it became time to turn that script into a reality, the cast and crew involved knew that they would have to confront the elements head on to truly bring the tale to life. And the latest featurrette to promote the disaster thriller Everest proves that was exactly the case, as the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, and Josh Brolin were forced to shoot in extraordinary conditions at which most of us would wimp and weep. Well, I think it.s safe to say that working on Everest was snow joke. I.m sorry. I just couldn.t resist. Kudos to everyone involved in the production for going to such great lengths to create the film. Let.s just hope that this actually comes across on screen when Everest »
A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Everest brings you to the mountains of Nepal for an incredible adventure.
The upcoming disaster epic tells the true story of 1996's Mount Everest disaster, when eight climbers became trapped in a brutal blizzard.
"It's a big-scale movie and it's not easy to shoot," star Jason Clarke says. "You've got to go to Nepal. That means you've got to shoot in the mountains. You need real weather and snow."
"[Director Baltasar Kormákur] wanted us to experience the elements," Jake Gyllenhaal adds. "He pushed us in that way."
The movie will open in Us and UK cinemas on September 18. »

Who says acting is easy? For director Baltasar Kormakur’s tale of survival on Everest during the mountain’s deadly 1996 climbing season, the cast – including Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, and John Hawkes – trekked to Nepal to film on-location.
That’s not fake snow, CGI, and green screen in the first trailer for Everest. That’s the real thing. The cast and crew ventured to Nepal to film scenes on the South Base Camp of Everest while dealing with some very real avalanche conditions and severe weather warnings. Kormakur pushed his actors to react to the actual weather conditions including working outdoors in freezing temperatures, making the film feel as real as possible.
The events of the film are based on the May 10, 1996 Everest climbing disaster most famously documented in Jon Krakauer’s book Into Thin Air. Severe weather in the late afternoon and a back-log of climbers attempting »

It has been destroyed by critics (read our reviews here and here)and was called the Worst Blockbuster of All-Time by our own Anghus Houvouras – but Terminator: Genisys passed a milestone this weekend.
Terminator: Genisys added another $2.5 million to its domestic total and has now made $305 million worldwide, the majority of which has come from overseas. In the Us, the movie has made just $85 million, but its worldwide take of $219 million (taken mostly in South Korea, United Kingdom and Russia) has helped push the movie past the $300 million marker.
However, the movie cost a whopping $185 million – and that doesn’t include marketing costs – so there is still some way for it to go before it becomes “profitable”. Terminator: Genisys is currently the 14th biggest movie of the year, and is being outperformed by The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Taken 3 and Mad Max: Fury Road. »

After making the international hit Easy Money, director Daniel Espinosa made his American film debut with 2012's Safe House. The filmmaker followed up that action-thriller with this year's Child 44, which is currently available on Digital HD before the Blu-ray and DVD release on August 4 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Today we have an exclusive preview which highlights the directorial style of the Child 44 filmmaker. And it proves he's certainly a filmmaker to watch in the future.
Tom Hardy, Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace star in the riveting and politically charged serial-killer drama Child 44, which made waves when it hit theaters earlier this year. Based on the first novel of the international best-selling trilogy by Tom Rob Smith and produced by the acclaimed Ridley Scott, the nail-biting story is written for the screen by Richard Price. The film features a stellar supporting cast that includes Joel Kinnaman, »
10 months before Terminator Genisys opened in theaters over the 4th of July holiday, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions announced plans for two Terminator sequels, set for release in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Back in 2013, Skydance, which paid over $20 million for the franchise rights back in 2011, announced plans for a TV series, hiring Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write the script. Now that Terminator Genisys has finally hit theaters, and the movie is underperforming, plans for these sequels and the spinoff TV show are in limbo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Terminator Genisys has only taken in $82.1 million domestically since its July 1 release, but it has fared much better overseas, taking in $196.8 million for a worldwide tally of $278.9 million, from a $155 million budget. While the results certainly don't classify Terminator Genisys as a box office bomb, the studio was surely hoping for higher figures. The movie still hasn't opened in China yet, »

Ever since I sat through the incredibly spoiler-y trailer for Robert Zemeckis' solid 2000 thriller What Lies Beneath, I've had a growing sense of caution towards movie trailers. That in the increasingly competitive crush to get money off you for a cinema ticket, the marketing campaigns for blockbuster - and non-blockbuster movies - are willing to reveal more and more footage from the film concerned. Often to the detriment of the movie itself.
For a long time, it was comedies that were the worst offenders for this, and they're still hardly off the hook. After all, comedy movie after comedy movie stuck all the best jokes in the trailer, and left nothing to enjoy fresh in the feature itself. »
Gyllenhaal has the lead role in Demolition as a man crushed by the tragic death of his young wife.
Davis Mitchell (Gyllenhaal) begins a letter-writing campaign to a vending machine company out of anger, only to discover a connection with a friendly customer service representative (Watts).
Academy Award winner Chris Cooper also has a supporting role as Davis's demanding father-in-law.
The role of a grieving husband is a familiar one for Gyllenhaal, as he will play a similar character in the upcoming boxing drama Southpaw.
Blake Lively is a multi-tasking mama. The 27-year-old actress, who gave birth to daughter James just before the New Year, took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photo of herself breastfeeding her baby girl—while wearing a bikini (natch). "The Perks of breastfeeding," Ryan Reynold's wife captioned the pic, seemingly alluding to the size of her breasts. Lively is currently filming All I See Is You in Thailand alongside Jason Clarke and Yvonne Strahovski. She brought along daughter James while she's working oversees, and Ryan Reynolds even spent time with the duo in Bangkok last week. Photos: Blake Lively's best looks In addition to the »
A new trailer for the film Everest was released the other day, and it looks like it might be that rare “must-see” IMAX movie. I know you’ve probably heard that line before, but this one looks like it could deliver some definite jaw-dropping moments (and maybe even a bit of drama too). Take a look for yourself.

In a summer which has felt a little light on truly “wow” blockbuster spectacles, Fury Road very much excepted, Terminator Genisys has had a particularly rough time of it. The film’s marketing certainly didn’t help, publicity stills of grinning Terminators and Matt Smith and Jai Courtney shouting into the air while firing guns set off alarm bells fairly early and the main trailer which spoilt one of the film’s pivotal moments immediately let those paying attention know that faith was not strong in the film. Upon release, word has been fairly noxious so it may be with lowered expectations in mind but while Terminator Genisys »
