Marvel has given us a glimpse at some concept artwork from Ryan Meinerding for Matt Murdock’s iconic red suit in the Netflix series Daredevil, which looks pretty close indeed to the costume that made it on screen in the season finale…
“The tone that was really communicated was the sense of realism that they were going for,” Meinerding tells Marvel.com. “I think the way that [manifested itself in] the costume was through the armor and making it feel a little bit more padded than you traditionally think of Daredevil being. When we do these designs, there’s a concept of grounded and a concept of reality. The grounded nature that they brought to the vigilante costume was the simplicity and effectiveness, because you’re trying to conceal your identity but also [have to be] mobile enough to fight. When you do a super hero costume in that world, it’s hard to be as »

A classic rags-to-riches story, Rosario Dawson began her career penniless, with no hopes of ever being an actor. Basically homeless, she was discovered on the streets and cast in her first film at the age of 15. She enjoyed the experience so much that she used her pay to take acting classes, and that’s how she ended up playing Night Nurse in Daredevil.
Her accomplishments sound a little less impressive when you put it like that, but Dawson’s performance as Claire Temple in Netflix’s first Marvel series was one of the highlights of that show. It was just the latest in a long line of great, complex and diverse roles she’s played over the years, starring in everything from Oliver Stone’s ill-fated Alexander to Rent.
Over the course of her career Dawson has played a death-defying make-up artist in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, the »

Here’s what we know about Netflix’s upcoming thriller Sense8 so far:
1. It is the brainchild of Matrix directors Andy and Lana Wachowski.
2. Per the official logline, it is the story of “eight people from around the world whose lives are suddenly and inexplicably connected in a fight for their own survival.”
4. Uh… that’s pretty much it.
Fortunately, TVLine recently caught up with Hannah and Andrews at a Netflix press event, and the actors were »

The annual Cannes festival has now kicked off, can you believe it’s already been a year since Sly, Arnie and the rest of The Expendables cast went for a tank ride? Expect the site to be riddled with various Cannes related breaking news over the coming days.
First up is a whole heap of new information about Ratchet And Clank. Based on one of the Sony’s most popular game franchises, the film follows the ever ongoing adventures of Lombax Ratchet and his robotic companion Clank.

They were also full of fun for all ages humour and featured some rather peculiar weaponry – the suck cannon anyone?

Much-loved videogame Ratchet & Clank is getting the animated big-screen treatment, with Sylvester Stallone set to star...
Launched in 2002, the Ratchet & Clank series has become one of the PlayStation's mainstays, with the adventures of its feline and robot odd-couple appearing on every Sony system to date.
It's now been revealed that an animated film adaptation is in the works, with the videogame series' regular voice cast being joined by a galaxy of starry names.
First up: Sylvester Stallone, who's previously lent his distinctive vocals to movies like Antz and Zookeeper (in the latter, he provided the voice of Joe the Lion). Joining him will be Paul Giamatti, John Goodman and Rosario Dawson (who was also in Zookeeper, but as a human being rather than a talking animal).
Rachet & Clank will be - brace yourself - an origin story, exploring how the furry Ratchet met his robot sidekick. Giamatti will play the lead villain, »
Ratchet & Clank fans will be disappointed to hear that its film adaptation and PS4 remake have been delayed.

Set to come our way in 2016, Playstation platform game Ratchet and Clank is getting the animated feature film treatment, and while the games original voice cast James Arnold Taylor (Rachet), David Kaye (Clank), Armin Shimmerman (Doctor Nefarious), and Jim Ward (Captain Quark) will be reprising their roles for the big screen adventures of the young alien Lombax and his robotic pal, The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that they will be joined by some tremendous talent, with Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Sylvester Stallone, Rosario Dawson, and Bella Thorne (The Duff) lending their voices. With the plot revolving around the titular pair teaming up with a group called the Galactic Rangers to save the galaxy from the evil Chairman Drex, who has gotten his hands on a dangerous weapon capable of destroying planets, it’s safe to assume that they have been cast as members of the Rangers, though I can’t »

Insomniac Games and Sony aren’t pulling any punches when it comes to the upcoming Ratchet & Clank animated film, after the companies revealed the adaptation’s voice cast will boast the likes of Paul Giamatti, Rosario Dawson, John Goodman and Hollywood veteran Sylvester Stallone.
Due to release at some point this year, Sony’s big-screen feature will also bring together the dulcet tones that helped transform the titular pair into the mascots we know and love, namely Arnold Taylor and David Kaye as Ratchet and Clank, respectively. In tandem with today’s announcement, Insomniac CEO Ted Price spoke of his own excitement to bring the eccentric pair onto the big screen.

Ratchet and Clank The Movie got a whole bunch of celebrities to voice some new characters in the upcoming movie.
The cool thing behind the movie was that the original voice actors from the game are also doing the movie. James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet and David Kaye as Clank for example, but being honest they are not really big name brands. If it's one thing Hollywood knows, it's that if you attach a popular name to a movie it then creates easy marketing. Those celebrities then do interviews etc... and promote the movie.
Well that is what happened today as the studio behind the film has announced Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne, Sylvester Stallone, and Rosario Dawson have all joined the cast of the movie for additional characters. The film is being directed by Kevin Munroe (Tmnt) and written by Tj Fixman, who wrote the series for Insomniac. »

It’s been a few years since Sylvester Stallone provided a voice performance for a film (that would be 2011’s Zookeeper) and even longer since he was part of a CG ‘toon (you have to go back to 1998’s Antz for that). But now he has not one but two new animated adventures in the works, since he’s signed on to play a character in Ratchet & Clank alongside Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne and Rosario Dawson. Announced back in 2013 with some hullabaloo, and taking aim at a release just a couple of months from now, the film adapts the PlayStation game series and also features the voice cast from the console title including James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet, David Kaye as Clank, Armin Shimerman as Nefarious and Jim Ward as Captain Qwark.The story finds Ratchet, a “lombox”, or cat-like creature, and his robot pal Clank, who have »
Chris Rock's latest outing is a semi-autobiographical take on the rise and fall (and rise?) of a comedy star...
Your mileage may vary on inside-track Hollywood comedies. Among the greats, there are biting satires like The Player or Swimming With Sharks and broader, sillier works like Tropic Thunder or Bowfinger, but the kind of rarefied air in which they largely unfold can sometimes be suffocating.
Thankfully, that's not the case with Top Five, Chris Rock's first project as a writer-director since 2007's I Think I Love My Wife, and inarguably his best so far. With a semi-autobiographical approach, the film clearly has a lot of influences from other films but thrives on a brand of charm that is entirely its own.
Andre Allen (Rock) is a stand-up comedian turned movie star who is best known for a trilogy of cringe-making comedy movies in which he stars as a crime-fighting bear called Hammy. »
At the launch for Rosario Dawson's African-inspired clothing line, Studio One Eighty Nine for Opening Ceremony, the Daredevil actress paused to note a coincidence. "The 20th anniversary of Kids is this year, and Chloe [Sevigny] also has a collection [at Opening Ceremony]," said Dawson, who noted that a reunion screening of the Larry Clark indie is planned for June in Brooklyn. "I'm pinching myself, 20 years into a career, I'm still working outside of my comfort zone, doing a show with Marvel on Netflix — a platform that didn't exist then."

Happy Birthday Rosario Dawson! With Marvel’s Daredevil due to return next year, Netflix and Marvel have confirmed the star has agreed to reprise her role of Claire Temple in the acclaimed series, with the deal also allowing her to appear in any of the pair’s other collaborations.
Jeph Loeb (Head of Marvel TV and Executive Producer on Daredevil) had this to say of the news:
‘After working with Rosario in the first season, we knew instantly that we had to have her back for our second. Claire Temple proved a fan favourite in season one, and we can’t wait for fans to see all the plans we have for her next.’
Proving to be a useful ally as well as a romantic interest to Matt Murdock in the show, Claire Temple does also feature in other Defenders comics, so it’ll be interesting to see how her role develops in future series. »
