The Week in Movies – Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World 2, Wolverine 3, Captain America: Civil War

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This inaugural edition of The Week in Movies discusses the last seven days in cinema – mainly the new Star Wars Universe reports, details on Jurassic World 2, the first image from Wolverine 3, Tom Cruise going sequel crazy and a whole load of superhero stuff.

Here’s a brief peak behind the movie news site business’ cinema drapes – any articles with the words ‘Star Wars‘ in the title tend to get tonnes of page views. That’s why some sites make up headlines. Whether that includes this latest Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One rumour about Felicity Jones’ character being the daughter of one of the series’ most famous villains, or whether Lucasfilm are working on three live-action Star Wars series for Netflix, this column couldn’t possibly say (for more news from a galaxy far, far away, check out The Week in Star Wars). It can, however, say this:

Taron Egerton and Jack Huston among those being considered for Robin Hood: Origins lead role

1 August 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Lionsgate is looking to lock down its lead for the upcoming Robin Hood: Origins film.

Kingsman: The Secret Service's Taron Egerton is reportedly among those on the shortlist, alongside fellow British actor Jack Huston and A Royal Night Out's Jack Reynor, Deadline reports.

Also up for consideration for the lead role is Dylan O'Brien, who can next be seen in The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.

Peaky Blinders director Otto Bathurst is set to take on the Robin Hood legend from a script by Joby Harold, the man who is also behind Guy Ritchie's Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur, starring Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law.

The film has been likened to The Dark Knight as a "gritty origins tale" that sees Robin arrive back from the Crusades and recruit his band of Merry Men after finding corruption across Sherwood Forest and Nottingham.

Robin Hood: Origins will be produced by Harold, »

Pacific Rim 2: Charlie Hunnam on what he wants to improve

26 July 2015 10:52 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim sequel starts shooting later this year - and its star wants

Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim movie made just about enough cash to persuade Legendary to stump up for a sequel, and Pacific Rim 2 will thus be heading to cinemas in summer 2017.

Returning to lead the film will be Charlie Hunnam, although by the sounds of it, he's not entirely happy with how the first movie turned out.

Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, he said that "I think world creation and monster creation and all of that stuff is exciting as a secondary element of storytelling. When it becomes more important than storytelling, I get very nervous, and you sort of lose me a little bit. Although we tried very hard on Pacific Rim to marry those two elements, I do feel like ultimately it got weighed heavier on the side of spectacle »

Seeing Double! Here's Charlie Hunnam's Doppelgänger

26 July 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

No, that's not Charlie Hunnam's selfie - it's a picture of Sean Craig, a guy who bears quite the resemblance to the Sons of Anarchy star. In an Instagram photo that definitely makes you do a double take, Sean snapped a picture of himself in front of his TV, with Charlie as Jax Teller in the background. Kind of crazy, right? We reached out to Sean to see what it's like to be the actor's doppelgänger. "At first I didn't like it, because I found out about the show while going to school for Harley at Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Phoenix, so I cut off all my hair and shaved," he said. "It happened to be the same season [Jax] did, so after that, I said, 'Screw it.' I am who I am. Maybe I can meet this guy and get a job." Of all things, Sean happens to »

Charlie Hunnam doesn't want too many special effects in Pacific Rim 2

26 July 2015 2:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Charlie Hunnam is gearing up to shoot the sequel to 2013 action film Pacific Rim - but this time around he's hoping for a less technically focused film.

The actor, who played Jaeger pilot Raleigh Becket in the first film, told Entertainment Weekly that he's not a huge fan of special effects when they take attention away from the acting.

"When it becomes very technical, those technical aspects create a rigidity to the process," he said. "Then all of a sudden, you have to find where your little place to fit into that process is, as opposed to the whole thing being about you."

The actor added that he's "nervous" about spectacle becoming more important than storytelling, explaining that he would have preferred a better balance in Pacific Rim.

"I think world creation and monster creation and all of that stuff is exciting as a secondary element of storytelling," he said. »

Charlie Hunnam hopes Pacific Rim 2 has more emphasis on character and storytelling rather than visual effects

25 July 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim 2 gearing up to go into production this November, star Charlie Hunnam has been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the film, revealing that he hopes it places more emphasis on character and storytelling, as opposed to visual effects and spectacle.

Charlie Hunnam Says Pacific Rim 2 Must Focus More on Story Than Visuals

25 July 2015 3:04 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It was recently announced that Guillermo Del Toro will return to direct "Pacific Rim 2," which is scheduled to hit theaters on August 4th, 2017. And in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, "Pacific Rim" star Charlie Hunnam commented on what he feels should be better in the sequel. "I think world creation and monster creation and all of that stuff is exciting as a secondary element of storytelling," he said. "When it becomes more important than storytelling, I get very nervous, and you sort of lose me a little bit. Although we tried very hard on 'Pacific Rim' to marry those two elements, I do feel like ultimately it got weighed heavier on the side of spectacle than storytelling." Hunnam continued: "I hope that we are able to remedy that a little bit going into the second. Not to say I wasn't proud of the film. I really liked it, »

'Pacific Rim 2' Needs More Story, Less VFX Says Charlie Hunnam

24 July 2015 3:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sons of Anarchy never brought giant robots and sea faring monsters into the mix, so you can imagine that star Charlie Hunnam had a hard time acclimating himself to all the green screen used in the first Pacific Rim. Lost amongst the giant visual spectacle that director Guillermo del Toro brought to the screen in that movie, the actor had a hard time trying to find his place in the futuristic world. Pacific Rim 2 will begin shooting this November, and Charlie Hunnam has some ideas about how it can, and should be a lot better. His number one complaint about the first movie? It had too many visual effects.

Not only is Pacific Rim 2 gearing up for production, but there is also a planned comic book tie-in and an animated TV series on the way. All of these will work in showing more backstory about the giant Kaiju monsters, »

Movie News: First Look at Charlie Hunnam in 'King Arthur'; 'Jurassic World 2' Set for 2018

24 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

King Arthur: Charlie Hunnam will star in King Arthur, and our first official look at the actor on set reveals that the king prefers casual wear. The movie, directed by Guy Ritchie and heading to theaters on July 22, 2016, will offer a new take on the legendary character, transforming him into "a street-wise hood" and sending him into battle against "giant snakes, massive war elephants, and a monstrous viking-like creature known as The Nemesis." [EW.com]   Jurassic World 2: A sequel to Jurassic World is on its way.

Charlie Hunnam Is Hoping For Fewer Visual Effects And More Focus On Story In Pacific Rim 2

24 July 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's hard to gauge whether the first Pacific Rim movie was a success or not. Financially, the movie did fine, taking in over $411 million at the global box office - which was clearly enough to convince Legendary Pictures to greenlight a sequel, anyway. However, while it did provide great entertainment value (in the form of monstrous kaijus battling giant robots), there were elements of the movie's story that didn't sit particularly well with some audiences and critics alike. While talking to EW about his next role in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur, Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam acknowledged these narrative issues, and claimed he'd like to see the sequel rein in some of the special effects, and instead put more focus on story and character. "When it becomes very technical, those technical aspects create a rigidity to the process. Then all of the sudden, you have to find where your »

How Pacific Rim 2 Will Be Different, According To Charlie Hunnam

24 July 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When it came out, Guillermo del Toro.s mechs versus monsters spectacle Pacific Rim was big and brash and a lot of fun. It was, however, lacking somewhat in the story and characterization departments. Now that Pacific Rim 2 is gearing up to begin production later this year, star Charlie Hunnam hopes that the sequel will correct these issues instead of focusing on razzle dazzle. Talking to EW about his upcoming role in Guy Richie.s medieval epic King Arthur, the conversation veered towards the pitfalls of working on a big, special effects-heavy film like Pacific Rim. The Sons of Anarchy veteran said: I think world creation and monster creation and all of that stuff is exciting as a secondary element of storytelling. When it becomes more important than storytelling, I get very nervous, and you sort of lose me a little bit. Although we tried very hard on Pacific Rim »

"Pacific Rim 2" To Focus More On Character?

24 July 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" ended up being one of those awkward bubble movies. Earning $411 million worldwide from a large budget, the Legendary Pictures film made enough to warrant a sequel, but was not a runaway hit either critically or financially by any means.

The sequel was approved with a smaller budget, and the original film's star Charlie Hunnam tells EW that he hopes that the next film will shift the focus away from the larger spectacle elements of monstrous kaijus battling giant robots, and focus some more on the character scenes:

"When it becomes very technical, those technical aspects create a rigidity to the process. Then all of the sudden, you have to find where your little place to fit into that process is, as opposed to the whole thing being about you... I think world creation and monster creation and all of that stuff is exciting as a secondary element of storytelling. »

Entertainment Weekly have released a gallery of images of Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie, and well, they’re a little bizarre. Rather than actual stills from the movie, they instead feature the actor just wandering about the set of the movie in costume and carrying Excalibur. Why? It’s hard to say,

Charlie Hunnam Is Officially the Hottest King Arthur Ever

23 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Fans are used to seeing Charlie Hunnam play gritty motorcycle gang president Jax Taylor in "Sons of Anarchy," but now, he's transforming, once again, into a medieval king in "Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur."  Entertainment Weekly is giving us our first look at the hunky leading man as King Arthur in Guy Richie's retelling of the classic tale -- and we're loving his movie makeover. Richie explains that he's giving his King an update, telling the mag, "I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland. The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch." "Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in Star Wars because he’s the good guy," he continues. "Good guys are boring." Hunnam knows a thing or two about playing the bad guy, which is »

First Photos: Charlie Hunnam Is "King Arthur"

23 July 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Guy Ritchie returns to cinemas next month with the dashing and well-dressed spy caper "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," but recently the man has been hard at work on his July 2016 film - "Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur".

The first in a proposed series of films that will retell the Arthurian story, Charlie Hunnam takes on the title role of the 6th century king who is said to have defended Britain against Saxon invaders. Today, EW has posted the first official photos related to the film - a featured photo spread with Hunnam sporting his look in the film along with his sword Excalibur.

Ritchie says this version of Arthur is different from previous incarnations: "I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland. The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they're not interesting to watch. »
