Luc Besson Puts His EuropaCorp to the Test With ‘Lucy’

24 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The son of scuba-diving instructors, Luc Besson came of age exploring the depths of the ocean floor and inventing stories out of the debris he would find along the shore. Some 50 years later, he is still playing with rocks in the sand — only now his shoreline is the river Seine and his castle a 667,000-square-foot film studio called Cite du Cinema (literally Cinema City). Built from the shell of a 1930s thermal power plant in the Paris suburb of Saint Denis, the sprawling complex — which includes nine soundstages, a 500-seat auditorium and a full-service restaurant — is headquarters for Besson’s prolific production and distribution outfit, EuropaCorp, plus a host of affiliated vendors and two film schools.

On a recent Friday afternoon, despite a bank-holiday weekend in France, Cite du Cinema was a hive of activity as editors, sound mixers and visual effects artists readied two new EuropaCorp productions for their »

Hercules review

23 July 2014 12:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dwayne Johnson takes on the role of a club-wielding demigod in Brett Ratner’s Hercules. What’s not to like? Here’s Ryan’s review...

In Hercules, Dwayne Johnson wears a lion’s head as a hat. That probably tells you a lot about the tone of director Brett Ratner’s larger-than-life sword-and-sandals adventure. Based on Steve Moore’s comic book of the same name, Hercules re-imagines the hero of classical legend as a flesh-and-blood mercenary struggling to live up to the weight of his own myth.

Surrounded by a misfit group of fellow warriors-for-hire, Dwayne Johnson’s Hercules is the ultimate working class hero, even if he is meant to be the son of Zeus: he leads from the front, and wades into action while the noblemen he works for stand around in their purple cloaks, chatting and eating freshly-peeled grapes.

Like videogame characters, Hercules’ crew each has a »

Kevin Feige Explains Why ‘Planet Hulk’ is Not The Next Step

21 July 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After two mildly successful cinematic outings in the form of Ang Lee’s Hulk (starring Eric Bana) and Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk (featuring Edward Norton), Marvel’s green rage monster seems to finally have some undeniable momentum, largely thanks to Mark Ruffalo’s well-received portrayal of Bruce Banner in The Avengers. Due to his bromantic chemistry with Tony Stark and the smashing of a “puny god,” the character was viewed as one of the film’s highlights.

With newfound interest in the Hulk, there are many clamoring for a new solo film which would give Ruffalo a chance to carry an outing on his own (the actor has even said the Click to continue reading Kevin Feige Explains Why ‘Planet Hulk’ is Not The Next Step

Kevin Feige interview: Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel films

17 July 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel Studios' boss Kevin Feige chats to us about Guardians Of The Galaxy, boutique Marvel movies, and Jason Statham...

Interview

Around these parts, Kevin Feige is a man who needs little introduction. As the president of Marvel Studios he holds more power and cinematic sway over the hearts and minds of geeks worldwide than most. For Feige is the man who’s in charge of the Marvel movie master plan that has seen the studio go from taking a boom or bust gamble when it made the first Iron Man, to box office dominance and critical success, while achieving the biggest and most unique multi-film crossover ever when The Avengers hit the big screen back in 2012.

As if that culmination wasn’t enough, we’re now in the middle of a second phase of films that has included a third Iron Man and second outings for both Thor (in »

10 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (July 12)

12 July 2014 2:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s Saturday, so you know what that means! It’s time for the latest edition of the WhatCulture.com News Brief, where we bring you the hottest movie and television related news to hit the web over the last week. In the last installment I mentioned that the Hollywood news cycle was slowing down a bit… but that has seemingly changed this week, as we have a lot to talk about today!

These recaps tend to be a bit superhero and blockbuster heavy, but this week Tinseltown gave us a bit more to work with, creating a more evenly balanced array of news items to talk about. On one end of the spectrum we have updates on Ridley Scott’s next biblical epic, and the upcoming spin-off of The Conjuring (which gives me nightmares from the premise alone). Then we’ve got news about TV shows like True Detective, »

Penelope Cruz Joins Sacha Baron Cohen Comedy Grimsby

10 July 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today, the sizable cast of Sacha Baron Cohen’s spy comedy Grimsby continues to grow, with news that Oscar winner Penelope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) has joined the cast in an important supporting role.

Though the specifics of Cruz’s role are officially being kept under wraps, insiders report that the actress is playing “a philanthropic corporate leader who may (or may not) be more than she seems.” Does this mean that Cruz could be playing the film’s big bad? That’s entirely possible, though Ian McShane is also in the cast, so he could be taking on the role of the main antagonist.

Grimsby stars Mark Strong as a James Bond-like secret agent who is forced to go into hiding in his hometown during a dangerous assignment. There, he’s forced to team up with his English football hooligan brother (Baron Cohen), who gets wrapped up in the action as well. »

Sacha Baron Cohen Standing Idle For ‘Grimsby’

3 July 2014 11:38 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s a small world, even if you’re a world famous comedian. Currently in the thick of resurrecting Monty Python at the O2 Arena, Eric Idle ran into a mate whilst out for a stroll. He Tweeted the encounter and the result is a movie exclusive as it features none other than Sacha Baron Cohen in costume for new comedy Grimsby

@EricIdle:  So who did I bump into on my walk today but my La neighbour? He’s here filming. I love coincidence.

Speaking of coincidence, it appears Idle was also dressed somewhat sportily, so he could well end up with a cameo in the football flick.  The story (co-written with Wreck-it Ralph’s Phil Johnston) sees Cohen’s dozy hooligan working alongside his long lost secret agent brother, played by Mark Strong.  As well as a heavyweight cast including Ian McShane and Gabourey Sidibe the production has comedy »

First Look At Sacha Baron Cohen As 'Grimsby'

3 July 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While the Adam Sandler and Kevin James types of the world lazily riff on their personas each time out, there are few in the comedy world who commit so fully to their character creations than Sacha Baron Cohen. He thinks of every detail, backwards and forwards, and is determined to deliver something three dimensional each time out. And that's why we look forward to his big screen work every single time. And coming next summer is "Grimsby," an action/comedy vehicle, directed by Louis Leterrier ("Clash Of The Titans," "Now You See Me"). The first look is here, and once again, Cohen has transformed. This time around he's playing a dim soccer fan who gets tangled up with his long lost brother, who also happens to be a secret agent. Mark Strong, Annabelle Wallis, David Harewood, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Johnny Vegas, Rebel Wilson and Isla Fisher star in this one, »
