Watch: Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin & Benicio Del Toro Team Up In First Clip For Denis Villeneueve’s 'Sicario'

22 May 2015 11:11 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You could sort of say we’re on his jock and we wouldn’t argue much. This is because French Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve has been non-stop killing it in recent years and he’s the kind of filmmaker we love because he uses genre as a Trojan Horse to explore the heart and soul of mankind. He’s a thinking man’s filmmaker and it shows in his work. The searing drama “Incendies” earned him a Foreign Language Academy Award nomination, “Enemy” with Jake Gyllenhaal was a nightmarish existentialist thriller, and “Prisoners” with Gyllenhaal again and Hugh Jackman was a bruising crime procedural. Since then, everyone wants to work with Villeneuve cause they’ve also seen the work and noticed he’s the real deal. Read More: Roger Deakins To Shoot Denis Villeneuve's 'Blade Runner' Sequel. He’s already bagged the coveted director’s chair for the “Blade Runner” sequel, »

Dave Grohl would only take women on “free” dates as a youngster

22 May 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Dave Grohl would only take women on “free” dates as a youngster.

The Foo Fighters rocker revealed he never had much cash available as a teenager so rarely had any romantic outings with potential girlfriends, and if he did, such dates would involve activities which didn’t cost him any money.

He said: “I’ve got to be honest, when I was young I never took anyone on any dates because I didn’t have any money.

“Any date that I went on when I was 17 or 18 years old probably involved some liquor stolen out of the cabinet and something free, like steps in the middle of town, and a punk rock show that we snuck into, or something like that.”

The 46-year-old musician – who now has daughters Violet, nine, Harper, six, and nine-month-old Ophelia with his wife Jordyn Blum, who he wed in 2003 – added he didn’t have many »

Reese Witherspoon Away With The Fairies In ‘Tink’

21 May 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Disney have been having a field day of late reworking their animated back catalogue into live action blockbusters. Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella has been to the ball and left with wads of cash, and with Tim Burton announced as helmer for the transfer of Dumbo the House Of Mouse shows no signs of slowing down. Next to get the green light is a character who could well be mistaken for a green light herself – Tinker Bell!

The perpetually high-wattage Reese Witherspoon is to star in and produce Tink, a vehicle for Peter Pan’s tiny winged companion. Written by Victoria Strouse, it’s reportedly a period piece. J.M. Barrie’s source material evolved into a play and a novel in the early twentieth century.

Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard are developing the movie, which is one of a number of Neverland-inspired projects on the way. Joe Wright’s Pan (starring Hugh Jackman »

21 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

You know an action hero is the baddest of badasses when he or she walks in and the room goes silent. The drug lord’s bodyguards, the mastermind’s henchmen, or even the foolhardy pack of drunkards outside a roadside bar stand at attention, ready for a challenge. It’s just one person. This shouldn’t be too hard. Seconds later, they’re on the ground nursing bruises, or worse, stumps where their arms and legs used to be. The One vs. Many Fight is the chance for the hero to prove »

Blade Runner 2 is Going to Look Very Pretty

20 May 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we know next to nothing about the plot for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, we do know that at the very least, it's going to look gorgeous, as renowned cinematographer Roger Deakins has joined the team.  Come inside to learn more. 

Blade Runner 2 is moving full steam ahead.  Just a couple months ago it was announced Denis Villenueve had been hired on to direct the sequel, with Harrison Ford set to return, and it looks like they're starting to build up the rest of the necessary behind the scenes crew to get production moving.  Announced at Cannes, Roger Deakins, the cinematographer behind Prisoners, Skyfall, Fargo, and Many others has been hired on as the Dop for the new movie.  Deakins has worked with Villenueve on his last two movies, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

Watch Hugh Jackman, Susan Sarandon, And Nick Offerman Play Password With Jimmy Fallon

19 May 2015 4:53 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Sometimes The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is hilarious, and sometimes it’s just weirdly awesome. While not especially funny, getting Hugh Jackman, Susan Sarandon, and Nick Offerman to sit down for a quick game of Password is beyond awesome.

There’s little to explain, except that what really pushes this over the edge is Jimmy’s own inability to find that perfect clue. The frustration shoots out of him like he’s sitting on a geyser.

The real question here is, why doesn’t someone bring this show back? Update it a bit, maybe, but who wouldn’t love to see some stars under pressure on a regular basis?

Check it out above, and keep tuning in.

The Pan Trailer's Stunning Look at Neverland Will Take Your Breath Away

19 May 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Pack your bags; we're going to Neverland. A dazzling new trailer for Joe Wright's (Anna Karenina) Pan, the big-screen tale of Peter Pan's origin story, has arrived. Hugh Jackman is starring as the pirate Blackbeard, alongside Garrett Hedlund as a young Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and Levi Miller as Peter Pan. It's not the story we're used to hearing; the film takes place when Peter is just a young orphan, kidnapped and brought to Neverland. This looks interesting, and I love Hedlund bringing some sexy to Hook. The visuals are stunning in the trailer, and you can bet they'll blow your mind in a theater. The movie is due out on Oct. 9, and you can watch the trailers below, complete with a quick look at Cara Delevingne. Here's the first trailer: »

Peter Pan and a young Captain Hook team up in the first trailer for “Pan,” in which Hugh Jackman plays Neverland pirate Blackbeard. The first full-length preview for the Warner Bros. release also shows Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) in action as Indian princess Tiger Lily, as well as rising star Cara Delevingne as a mermaid.

Joe Wright’s Peter Pan Is Forever Young In Mystical Second Trailer For Warner Bros.’ Adventure

19 May 2015 8:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The timeless story of J.M. Barrie’s sprightly youngster may be forever etched in folklore, from his first days in Neverland to the battle with evil pirate Captain Hook. But for Joe Wright’s upcoming Pan, Warner Bros. is rolling back the age-old story to its humble beginnings in order to explore the early days of Peter and Co. and how those rivalries, friendships and sense of childish wonder all began.

With Levi Miller stepping into the shoes of the titular hero, Wright’s live-action feature will see our budding protagonist whisked away to the alternate reality within which Hugh Jackman’s ostentatious villain Blackbeard rules over the whimsical world. That’s not the only tinkering the director has done to the source material, though, with Rooney Mara on board to play a revised version of Tiger Lily, a punk-like denizen of the fantastical realm that is under threat from Blackbeard’s reign. »

New Full Length Pan Trailer Teases Prophecy and Adventure

19 May 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Warner Bros. has released a brand new trailer for Joe Wright's upcoming Pan film, reimagining the origin of the popular children's character, infusing it with more action and a prophetic slant to it.  Come inside to check out the new trailer.  

Pan was supposed to hit in just a couple months, but WB decided to push it back to an October release slot.  Fortunately, people looking forward to the film can still get some relief thanks to this new trailer that hit: 

I'm going to be honest here...I'm not digging the trailer.  I wasn't all that thrilled when the first trailer dropped either, but something about this film isn't making a connection with me.  It's missing something, and feels a tad too much like the fairy tale live-action films Disney has been putting out.  The sense of tension and overall purpose isn't there in this trailer, even though »

Watch: Neverland is Waiting in New 'Pan' Trailer

19 May 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. decided to delay their upcoming Peter Pan feature, Pan, from a July release to Oct. 9, hoping to catch a wider audience later in the year rather than compete with the large amount of summer releases. Not a bad move in my estimation as it seems you either need a big franchise name like Mission: Impossible, a superhero movie or a hard bit of counter-programming, a la Pitch Perfect 2, to really survive the summer movie season nowadays. At least if we're talking a movie with some dollars behind it and word is Pan cost the studio $150 million. Directed by Joe Wright (Atonement), Pan is a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the J.M. Barrie character with Levi Miller taking on the title role as a mischievous 12-year-old boy who, one night, is whisked away from the orphanage where he lives and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, »

Watch: More Blackbeard in Second Trailer for Joe Wright's 'Pan' Movie

19 May 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"He's the pirate all pirates fear - Blackbeard!!" Warner Bros has debuted the second full-length trailer for Joe Wright's Pan, which was initially slated for a summer release but was pushed back until October. Hugh Jackman plays Blackbeard, and he takes one of the main roles, alongside young actor Levi Miller as Peter Pan. We also get to see a bit more of Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Garrett Hedlund as Hook (before he becomes bad), Adeel Akhtar as Mr. Smee, plus Cara Delevingne as a mermaid. There are way more VFX shots in this than the first trailer, but it still feels a bit overly colorful in its design. Other than that, I am actually into this, I can see the whimsical fairy tale idea he's going for and I think it looks fun. Away we go... Here's the latest official trailer for Joe Wright's Pan, direct from Warner Bros: For comparison, »
