Watch: Everything Burns In Moody New Trailer For Cannes-Bound ‘The Rover’ With Guy Pearce & Robert Pattinson

5 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fear The Man With Nothing Left To Lose. So goes the tagline of David Michod's "The Rover" starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and with the film now headed to Cannes, A24 has dropped a new trailer and a couple of posters for the thriller. And yes, it looks pretty damn good. Already showcasing his skill at capturing men pushed to the brink in "Animal Kingdom," Michod's latest takes it even further. Set ten years after the collapse of society, with the rule of law now tossed out the window, the story kicks off when Rey (Pattinson) is carjacked and left for dead, only to fall into an partnership with loner Eric (Pearce), who helps him track the down the gang of thieves. And the story, conceived by Michod and Joel Edgerton, looks like one packed with a grim sense of place and a palpable atmosphere of a post-apocalyptic world. »

Screenwriters Bill Collage and Adam Cooper have signed on to rewrite the script for New Regency's video game adaptation Assassin's Creed, which has Michael Fassbender attached to star.

The writers will rework the original draft by Michael Lesslie, although no specific story details have been given. We reported in January that Safe House director Daniel Espinosa was being eyed to direct, but his involvement has not been confirmed at this time.

The Ubisoft video game centers on a bartender named Desmond Miles, who learns that he comes from a long line of assassins, as he is forced by an evil corporation to track down priceless artifacts while using a device that gives him all of the skills and training of his predecessors before him.

No production schedule has been given, but the film is already slated for an August 7, 2015 release date.

Actors Who Could Replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine

7 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It's really hard to imagine anyone other than Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine in the movies. He's been playing the character for so long! It's been 14 years since he was introduced in Bryan Singer's X-Men. The part was originally supposed to go to Russell Crowe, but he passed on it and told the studio to give it Jackman, so they did. The actor himself has said that his replacement is inevitable. As much as we love him as the character, he can't keep it up forever.

"Look, that’s inevitable, man. Anyone who thinks they're indispensable in this business is fooling themselves. But I feel unbelievably blessed to have this part. I never thought in a million years I'd get to play him seven times. Every day I walk on the set with the claws and the hair, I thank my lucky stars. I don't take any of it for granted. »

Jesse Plemons, Juno Temple in talks for Johnny Depp's Black Mass

3 April 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Juno Temple and Jesse Plemons have entered talks for Black Mass.

The two actors are in line to join Johnny Depp in Scott Cooper's Whitey Bulger biopic, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The trade also claims that the casting could end Plemons's chance to appear in Jj Abrams's Star Wars: Episode VII.

Joel Edgerton and Guy Pearce will star as well in the tale of the life of the Boston mob boss.

Depp will play Bulger, who went on the run for ten years after being sold out by a childhood friend and was not caught until 2011.

Temple will play Deborah Hussey in Black Mass - a prostitute and the stepdaughter of Whitey's lieutenant Flemmi.

Plemons will take on the role of Kevin Weeks, one of the gangster's inner circle.

Temple will next be seen in Disney's Maleficent and Sin City: A Dame to Kill for.

The James Clayton Column: The Biblical blockbuster comeback?

3 April 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature James Clayton 4 Apr 2014 - 06:39

As Noah arrives in cinemas, and with Ridley Scott's Exodus around the corner, James ponders the return of the biblical epic...

"Then God said, 'Let there be Industrial Light & Magic'; and there was Industrial Light & Magic." (Genesis: A New Hope. 1:3)

It is the Year of our Lord 2014 (other Lords and religiously-orientated calendar systems are available) and things are getting old-school. To be precise, things are getting Old Testament. They're bringing the Bible back into movie theatres, for this year sees the release of two major movie adaptations of Judeo-Christian scripture.

Those two film events are a Noah - currently sailing into cinemas worldwide - and an Exodus, which is set to occur in December. Though it feels a bit disrespectful to compare holy writ with public transport, the well-known idiom about waiting for buses feels apt here. Perhaps singing "the Old Testament films came two-by-two, »

Jesse Plemons Joins 'Black Mass'; Is He Out for 'Star Wars 7'?

2 April 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Breaking Bad star Jesse Plemons is in talks to star in Warner Bros.' crime drama Black Mass, which likely rules him out to play a role in the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII.

Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams confirmed in January that Jesse Plemons was one of the actors he had met with for a role rumored to be a Jedi apprentice. Since both Black Mass and Star Wars: Episode VII are scheduled to begin production around the same time in May, it seems clear that he will not be a part of the sci-fi sequel. The Hollywood Reporter's sources indicate the actor did have a meeting for the Star Wars: Episode VII role, although has nothing materialized since then.

J.J. Abrams is reportedly meeting with "tons of actors," while going through script revisions, although nothing seems to have come from any of these meetings.

Jesse Plemons and Juno Temple in Talks to Join Black Mass; Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney May Reteam for The Heart

2 April 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to attend to this afternoon.  First up, THR reports that Jesse Plemons (The Master) and Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises) are in talks to join Johnny Depp in the Whitey Bulger drama Black Mass.  This tidbit appears to confirm that, while he indeed met for the project, Plemons is likely out of contention for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII.  The J.J. Abrams-directed sequel will be filming at the same time as Black Mass and Plemons would be unable to do both movies, so the fact that he’s actively seeking other work in the near future signals that we probably won’t be seeing Landry in a galaxy far, far away. Depp is set to play Bulger in Black Mass, with Joel Edgerton and Guy Pearce onboard to co-star and Dakota Johnson in talks for a role.  Though »

Juno Temple Attending Black Mass

2 April 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Johnny Depp as the star at the centre of true-crime Boston mob drama Black Mass, his gravitational pull has been attracting other actors. Director Scott Cooper now has Juno Temple and Jesse Plemons in talks for the film.Cooper has reworked Mark Mallouk’s script for the film, itself loosely based on Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neil’s book Black Mass: The True Story Of An Unholy Alliance Between The FBI And The Irish Mob. Depp will play infamous Boston crime figure Whitey Bulger, who masterminded a violent gang in Boston while also reportedly turning federal informant to take down rivals. It seemed to be working out well – particularly with corrupt FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) helping to smooth things – but when the Bureau began making arrests, agents double-crossed Bulger and prosecuted him. Bulger fled in 1994 and was captured in 2011 in California. Guy Pearce is set as Senator William ”Billy” Bulger, »

Robert Pattinson in James Dean biopic - new on-set pictures

1 April 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Pattinson has been pictured as Us photojournalist Dennis Stock on the Los Angeles set of upcoming James Dean biopic Life.

The 27-year-old actor stars as Stock alongside Dane DeHaan, who plays the late icon Dean in the film directed by Anton Corbijn.

Set in 1955, the movie tells the story of how Stock - after being commissioned by Life magazine - documented the then-undiscovered Dean in Los Angeles, New York and Indiana after spotting star potential in him. It documents the true story of pair's friendship.

In the pictures, Pattinson can be seen with slicked to the side hair and '50s attire, while holding a camera with a group of photographers on set at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.

In one snap, the actor's character seems to be in the centre of what looks like a slight altercation with another photographer.

Sir Ben Kingsley, Alessandra Mastronardi and Joel Edgerton also feature in the cast. »

Ridley Scott's 'Exodus' Gets Title Change, Will Produce 'A Better Place' From 'Out Of The Furnace' Writer

28 March 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Given the recent news that Ridley Scott's next movie (unless he squeezes in something else, which we doubt) is basically "Prometheus 2," which is set to to arrive in 2016, it's easy to forget that the busy filmmaker has one coming this year. And it's a different flavor than than sci-fi sequel, or last year's grim, talky "The Counselor." It's the Biblical tale "Exodus," and it's getting a title change. HitFix reveals that the movie, not content with a single word as the title, has now added a subtitle, becoming: "Exodus: Gods And Kings." It does sound weightier we suppose, which makes sense given all this one brings to the table. Scott has assembled another all-star cast—Christian BaleJoel EdgertonAaron PaulBen Kingsley, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver—in a movie that will chronicle the many adventures of Moses, from bringing down the ten commandments to parting the Red Sea. »
