On October 13, 2010, the world held its collective breath as the global media broadcast the miraculous rescue of 33 Chilean miners that had been trapped 200 stories below ground for 69 days following the disastrous collapse of a copper-gold mine in Copiapó, Chile. Spurred on by the support and faith of the miners’ families encamped outside the mine, the Chilean miners’ rescue is one of the most moving real-life events of modern times, watched by more than a billion people around the world.
On October 13, 2015, Chilean Consulates across the United States and in Canada will celebrate the five-year anniversary of this daring rescue with events, including special screenings of Alcon Entertainment’s and Warner Bros. Pictures’ new film The 33.
Made with the cooperation of the real-life miners, their families and their rescuers, The 33 opens nationwide on November 13, 2015, exactly one month after the five-year anniversary of the rescue.

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for the unforgettable true story of The 33.
In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine.
Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out.
A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up. »

The first trailer for the Chilean miners drama, The 33, dropped on Wednesday, which offered a first look at the film starring Antonio Banderas and directed by Patrick Riggen. The movie also stars Juliette Binoche, Rodrigo Santoro, James Brolin, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bob Gunton, and Gabriel Byrne.
The 33 follows the 33 miners that were trapped in a mine in Chile in 2010 and seems to be a dramatized version of the struggles they went through.
It looks like this could be this year’s tearjerker melodrama, but maybe has a little more going for it based on the relatively impressive cast that has been assembled. Not to mention, the film looks like it could use the closed space of the mine in order to get some great performances out of actors such as Banderas, who haven’t really spread their wings with a good project lately (yes, we remember Spongebob, Antonio »

In 2010, 33 Chilean miners were trapped underground for 69 days when a mountain collapsed on top of them. Five years later, their harrowing story is now being brought to the big screen, led by Antonio Banderas and a supporting cast that includes Juliette Binoche, Bob Gunton, and Gabriel Byrne. As if the movie's premise weren't enough to make you cry, its first trailer is also soundtracked by A Great Big World's "Say Something," a.k.a. the sappiest song ever recorded. Get the tissues. »

"That's not a rock, that's the heart of the mountain - she finally broke..." Warner Bros has debuted the full trailer for the Chilean mining catastrophe movie The 33, directed by Patricia Riggen, starring an ensemble international cast: Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, James Brolin, and Lou Diamond Phillips, with Bob Gunton and Gabriel Byrne. The cast also includes Mario Casas, Jacob Vargas, Juan Pablo Raba, Oscar Nuñez, Tenoch Huerta, Marco Treviño, Adriana Barraza, Kate Del Castillo, Cote de Pablo, Elizabeth De Razzo, Naomi Scott, Gustavo Angarita, and Alejandro Goic. This is one of those uplifting, inspirational movies of hope and perseverance. It's Hollywood-ized, but it still looks pretty good. Here's the first official trailer for Patricia Riggen's The 33, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube: In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. »

In 2010, the entire world’s attention was on the plight of a group of thirty three Chilean miners who were trapped in an 100 year old mine as an international team worked tirelessly to get them out. Now, these intense and trying sixty nine days are coming to the big screen with the Patricia Riggen (Girl in Progress) directed The 33. The generic pop song aside (anyone else see the irony of using a song with the lyrics ‘I’m giving up on you’ as the soundtrack to one of the greatest rescues of recent years?) , our first look at The 33 shows a lot of promise, with a solid cast, including Antonio Banderas, Bob Gunton, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne, and James Brolin, and a story that not only focuses on the personal lives of those trapped in the mine and the people they’ve left alone up above, but delves »

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 »

Marvel’s Daredevil is a hit! The Netflix show has already been renewed for a second season to air in 2016, and I’m sure if you’re reading this right now, you’ve already binged through the series. If not, what are you waiting for? Since the first season has been available for a few weeks now, it seems like the perfect time to take a closer look at the many Easter eggs and references to the Marvel universe at large that were peppered throughout the series. Some were obvious, and some were a little more hidden, but they all served to enrich this Netflix extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Episode 1 - “Into The Ring” [caption id="attachment_450223" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via Netflix[/caption] - Interesting to see Leland Owlsley, played here by Bob Gunton, make an appearance as a member of the NYC’s organized crime.

Marvel kicked off its Netflix shows earlier this month with the release of the 13-part series Daredevil, but if Joss Whedon had his way, the Man Without Fear would never have appeared on the small screen, with the Avengers: Age of Ultron helmer telling IGN that he fought for a Daredevil movie from Marvel Studios.
“I fought for Daredevil to be a film instead of a TV show. Then under the auspices of Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight… I’m dying to see the show but they released it just as I started the press tour! If the show’s working, the show’s working. Comic books are serialised entertainment and a lot of them lend themselves to TV shows as much or more than they do to movies. I like [Daredevil] because he’s basically Marvel’s Batman, thanks to Frank Miller basically. So for me I didn’t think »

In this exclusive interview, we sat down with the star of Netflix’s Daredevil Charlie Cox to talk about the first season, the upcoming second season, who he would like to see in the movie (Elektra and Black Widow!) and the chances of joining The Avengers.

While over in London to promote Daredevil, Flickering Myth’s Deputy Editor Luke Owen caught up with Charlie Cox to talk about the series and look ahead to season two. With the new season being announced for next year, how will this affect the line up of other shows including Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders?
“Yeah, I don’t really know [how it affects The Defenders], that’s being discussed by people who are much more important than I am,” Cox told us. “If you watch the first season, you discover that it’s Matt Murdock’s evolution into Daredevil. So by the time we get to the end, we’ve only just touched on that. So I think it’s valid to have another 13 hours where we see Matt Murdock inhabit Daredevil and live in that persona. So we’ll do that this year and it will presumably be released next year, »

Everyone is talking about "Daredevil," Marvel's new Netflix series that's become a cultural touchstone since its release earlier this month. So it should come as no surprise, then, that the streaming service has picked up the show for another season.
Netflix and Marvel announced the renewal earlier this week, noting that season two should debut sometime in 2016. The series will also get new showrunners for its second go-around, with Doug Petrie ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "American Horror Story") and Marco Ramirez ("Sons of Anarchy") subbing in for Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard.
"Daredevil" stars Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Scott Glenn, Bob Gunton, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis Hall, and Ayelet Zurer. It's the first of four planned Marvel-centric series coming to Netflix, with "A.K.A. Jessica Jones »

Marvel has managed to completely reinvigorate the superhero movie in a massive way. It all began with 2008’s Iron Man and then spread out to the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, culminating in the release of 2012’s The Avengers. But since then, Marvel hasn’t been content to just focus on the big league superheroes.
Rather, with Phase Two, they’ve started to branch out a little bit more. Not only have there been wild card characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy but Marvel even expanded out into television with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now comes the release of Daredevil, a Marvel-produced series airing exclusively on Netflix: a new move that promises to revolutionize the superhero genre yet again.

Galaxy Quest TV Series: Variety reports that Paramount Television is looking to do a TV series take on the 1999 sci-fi-comedy, Galaxy Quest, which starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman. Robert Gordon, the co-writer of the feature film that poked fun at sci-fi conventions, such as the high fatalities of redshirts on Star Trek, is in talks to be involved in the TV version, along with the 1999 film's director, Dean Parisot, and its executive producers, Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates.
Synopsis of the Galaxy Quest film (via Blu-ray.com): "They're not astronauts... they only played them on TV. For four seasons, from 1979 to 1982, the crew of the N.S.E.A. Protector donned their uniforms »

The first season of Daredevil hasn’t been on Netflix for two weeks yet, but the overwhelmingly positive response to it has prompted Marvel and Netflix to announce that it will be receiving a second season next year. Joyous times for those who binged it over the first weekend (guilty), and want to see of the ‘Avocados at Law’.
The full blurb can be found over at Marvel.Com, but the important bit you can read right here…
“With the first season of “Marvel’s Daredevil” proving a smash success with both audiences and critics, Netflix and Marvel will continue to create further adventures of the Man Without Fear! Doug Petrie (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “American Horror Story”) and Marco Ramirez (“Sons of Anarchy”), who worked closely with Executive Producers Steven S.
