Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris And Andy Garcia In Talks For Geostorm

18 August 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The absolutely bonkers-sounding Geostorm may be about to transform from a Gerard Butler sci-fi actioner into a star-studded sci-fi blockbuster. Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind) and Andy Garcia (The Godfather Part III) are reportedly all in talks for major roles in the pic, which aims to blend elements of a political thriller and an effects-heavy disaster epic.

Butler stars as a gruff but likable satellite designer who, after the world’s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, is forced to team up with his estranged brother (Sturgess) to save the world from a man-made storm of epic proportions. However, as the designer heads into space, his brother discovers a nefarious plot to assassinate the president and plunge the world into even deeper chaos.

If they come aboard, Cornish will play a Secret Service agent, the girlfriend of Butler’s protagonist. Harris will play the secretary of »

Are you ready for Geostorm? Hell, not even We're ready for Geostorm, because we can't yet convey in text the echo effect the title has when it escapes our mouths. Geostorm, the wildest, wackiest, most delightful space saga you've ever heard, is headed to theaters. And now they've added a pretty crackerjack collection of names to the cast. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Warner Bros. are in talks with Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris and Andy Garcia to get wrapped up in the Geostorm. The thriller, directed by Dean Devlin of Independence Day fame (as a producer), is already set to star Gerard Butler as a space satellite designer, with Sturgess set to play his estranged brother. Sturgess has a wife, Cornish, who is employed on the Secret Service protecting a President played by Andy Garcia (Hispanic President, woohoo!). Harris will be the Secretary of State. And how do »

9 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Starring: Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, Marianne Jean-Baptiste

Running Time: 121 minutes

Certificate: 12A

Special Features: Deleted Scenes, Omnicorp Corporate Product Videos, Featurettes: The Illusion of Free Will, To Serve & Protect, The Robocop Suit. 

First of all, it’s easy to negate remakes or reboots and wax lyrical about their purpose or the advantages of having a new angle but what it always comes down to, beyond anything, is the story and how it tries to tell and achieve it – regardless of originals.

In Robocop (2014), we’ve jumped out of the gritty, violent late 80s and delved into the paranoia of nearly 30 years later, where the world is a lot more aware but evidently just as concerned over things beyond their control. While Jose’s Robocop tries to tell a story »

RoboCop officially took over the city of Detroit yesterday as the crime fighter hit the streets to meet and take pictures with fans in celebration of #ROBOCOPDay and the Blu-ray and DVD release of the film.

RoboCop visited iconic landmarks including The Monument to Joe Louis, The Spirit of Detroit, 8 Mile, and Comerica Park. Additionally RoboCop visited top radio stations at Clear Channel, CBS Radio, and Greater Media Detroit and even did the weather on Wjbk-tv, the local Fox affiliate.

The day concluded as he threw the ceremonial first pitch at the beginning of the game between the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays, with the first 10,000 fans receiving a commemorative RoboCop poster and some lucky fans taking home a copy of the new Blu-ray.

'RoboCop' Statue to Be Unveiled in Detroit Tomorrow

2 June 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With 20th Century Fox's RoboCop debuting on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD June 3, the city of Detroit will unveil their 10-foot bronze statue of the crime-fighting cyborg, portrayed by Peter Weller in the original Robocop and by Joel Kinnaman in this year's reboot. Take a look at the photo of this statue, then read on for more details about "RoboCop Day" in the Motor City tomorrow.

The initiative to construct a RoboCop statue started three years ago, when a Massachusetts resident suggested to Detroit mayor Dave Bing that the city should celebrate this iconic character with a statue in the following message.

"Philadelphia has a statue of Rocky & RoboCop would kick Rocky's butt. He's a Great ambassador for Detroit."

While the mayor responded that there were no plans for a RoboCop statue, non-profit organization Imagination Station raised $50,000 to fund the construction, just days after the initial suggestion was made. The unveiling »

Famous Actresses Used as Models for Femme Fatale Art Series

29 May 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here is a sampling of pieces that are included in "Femme Fatale", a stunning portrait series by Australian based screen-print artist Rhys Cooper. The show will run from May 31st through June 21st at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco.

If my TMZ-like memory for actors’ faces hasn’t failed me, I’m certain these femme fatales were modeled after some very famous and extremely beautiful actresses (no complaints here). Obviously Maleficent is in the likeness of Angelina JolieNatalie Portman looks to be used for Sorceress from He-Man [thanks to NietzschesGhost for the correction]. Poison Ivy is definitely modeled after Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer — the side shave is a dead giveaway. Sofia Vergara is Red Riding Hood, and Mystique looks to be Kate Beckinsale [note: readers on Fb have also pointed out that she looks like Charlize Theron (the eyes definitely), others say Scarlett Johansson. It's perhaps a mix of a few actresses.] The only one I’m not so sure about is Rogue, who looks equal parts Abbie Cornish and Amber Heard.

The remaining art will be released online June 2nd. »

‘Robocop’ Blu-ray Review

28 May 2014 1:42 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Joel Kinnaman, Douglas Urbanski, Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Samuel L. Jackson, Aimee Garcia | Written by Joshua Zetumer | Directed by Jose Padilha

Remakes eh? They’re not going away are they? I’m not going to proselytize in favour or against them; as long as punters keep lining up to see the same stories retold every decade or so with younger actors and fancier graphics then studios are going to keep making them. They’re safe bets. But there’s a difference between remaking and sanitising. Paul Verhoeven’s eighties original RoboCop is a scuzzy, violent piece of work and all the better for it. The moment the BBFC’s 12a certificate appears on screen for the 2014 version, it’s hard to not to feel just a little bit disappointed. Of course, you can get away »

Blu-ray, DVD, Digital: Robocop (2013)

6 May 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Digital Release Date: May 20, 2014; Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: June 3, 2014

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99

Studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

“Part Man. Part Machine. All Cop,” says the tag line for the original 1987 version, but the Robocop remake doesn’t quite live up to its predecessor, according to critics.

The 2013 movie stars Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman (TV’s The Killing) as loving father, husband and dedicated cop Alex Murphy, who’s critically injured on the job in corrupt Detroit. He gets a new life thanks to OmniCorp, which sees this as an opportunity to make billions. The company builds Murphy into a part-man, part-robot super cop, just the first in a fleet. But they don’t count on Alex fighting to stay human.

The critics gave the original Robocop an approval rating of 88%, but the 2013 version got only 49% love, called “cynical” and “boring” by Richard Roeper. Maybe it’s partly »

‘Klondike’ Review

6 May 2014 1:45 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Richard Madden, Abbie CornishTim Roth, Marton Csokas, Ian HartTim Blake Nelson, Sam Shepard | Directed by Simon Cellan Jones

The Discovery Channel is (or at least used to be) a place you would find documentaries. This is why adding Klondike to their schedule would seem to be a strange occurrence. You would think that with the show being on this channel then there would be a focus on historical accuracy and a focus on the lives of the miners working the mines of the Yukon in the late 1800s. The truth is though it may be based on real people who existed, the focus is more on the drama and relationships which in turn becomes more about fiction, rather than accuracy. Once you get past that realisation though, you’ll find a show that is enjoyable and, somewhat, interesting.
