Special Features - The Future of Guillermo del Toro

30 December 2012 11:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

David Bishop sorts through the multitude of projects on Guillermo del Toro's upcoming slate to see which ones have a shot at reaching the screen...

Visionary director / producer / writer / filmmaking machine Guillermo del Toro has about a million projects on the go. It seems his name is never far away when a major new franchise rears its head, on top of the ridiculous amount of self-starting projects he seems to announce on an almost daily basis. So, with the recent release of the (mind-blowing) Pacific Rim trailer, it seems a good time to get things straight and find out what’s concrete, what’s a possibility and what’s just wishful thinking.

The Hobbit – “But he’s no longer involved you complete moron.” I hear you cry. Well indeed, but such was his involvement that he still got a co-writer credit for his troubles. Whether his influence will be »

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Trailer Starring Steve Carell and Jim Carrey

21 December 2012 7:40 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Last month we saw the first trailer for Louis Leterrier's magician heist movie Now You See Me and now this week Hollywood's new obsession with magic continues with the first look at the upcoming comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. The movie stars Steve Carell as Burt Wonderstone, a famous veteran magician who has been performing in Vegas for years with his partner Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi). Recently, however, their act is starting to be threatened by hip street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), forcing them to return to their roots and remember what made them love magic in the first place. The movie is directed by Don Scardino, a long-time TV director who has worked on such shows as Cosby, Law & Order and 30 Rock. What is probably a bigger selling point for most people, however, is the fact that the script was written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, »

Modern ‘Zorro’ Series May Be Heading to USA Network

17 December 2012 6:58 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It looks as though USA Network could be bringing a new spin to the character of Zorro in a series simply titled Z – like the trademark slash the hero leaves behind – which would feature a modern-day retelling of the character’s origins and his ongoing battle against corruption and villainy.

According to Variety, the project is currently in development from Grimm executive producer Naren Shankar and Louis Leterrier – director of The Transporter 1 & 2, The Incredible Hulk, and, most recently, Clash of the Titans. Should USA choose to pick up the series, Shankar would serve as showrunner, while Leterrier would apparently come on board to direct a handful of episodes.

Right now, the network is mulling over a ...

Top 10: Superhero Fight Scenes

4 December 2012 4:15 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Every superhero needs a good villain, and over the years we’ve seen many a memorable brawl on the silver screen.

To celebrate the release of The Dark Knight Rises on DVD and Blu-Ray this week, we’ve racked our brains to narrow down the top 10 superhero movie fight scenes to date.

Here goes nothing…

10 | Hulk vs. Abomination | From The Incredible Hulk (2008)

If Avengers Assemble (2012) finally perfected Hulk on the big screen, then Louis Leterrier’s 2008 film showed that Marvel were moving in the right direction. As CGI battles go, the final showdown between Hulk and Abomination was impressive. Although we could have done without Betty’s (Liv Tyler) intervention, it was the first time that we got to see a foe who could physically challenge Bruce Banner’s alter-ego.

Best part: Hulk finds an alternative use for police cars. Specifically, boxing gloves.

Joss Whedon's 'Much Ado About Nothing' & Ethan Hawke's 'Purge' Get Summer Release Dates

29 November 2012 2:24 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the unbelievable success of "The Avengers," Joss Whedon is the new king of summer. Want proof? His arty, I-made-it-in-my-backyard-for-real Shakespeare adaptation is going to go in the deep end with the blockbusters in 2013. Lionsgate will drop Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing" in theaters on June 7, 2013, the same weekend as M. Night Shyamalan's "After Earth," Louis Leterrier's "Now You See Me" and the Owen Wilson/Vince Vaughn team up "The Internship." So...good luck? Shot in less than two weeks, the black-and-white picture stars Whedon pals Nathan Fillion, Fran Kranz, Jillian Morgese, Sean Maher, Clark Gregg, and Reed Diamond, it's a contemporary spin on the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick that offers a dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love. While we still don't get the summer date, the movie itself is a hoot, and after seeing it at Tiff. »

First Shots From Ayoade's The Double

22 November 2012 12:00 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Jesse Eisenberg is poised to have a very strange 2013, one split between two very different projects. On the big, mainstream side of things there's the Louis Leterrier magician caper film Now You See Me. And on the interesting side of things there is his starring role in The Double, the sophomore effort from Submarine helmer Richard Ayoade. Based on a Dostoevsky short story, "The Double is the comic story of an insignificant man driven to near breakdown by the appearance of his doppelganger. Funny, frightening and dream-like, the film will reflect on loneliness and our need to love and be loved."No, it's not the most exciting synopsis in the world but Ayoade is simply a fabulous talent and the cast in this - Mia »

Comic Book Bites: Ang Lee admits Hulk errors; four more actors up for Harry Osborn in Spider-Man 2

21 November 2012 5:30 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

There have now been three versions of Hulk on the big screen, with Eric Bana in Ang Lee's Hulk back in 2003, followed five years later by Edward Norton in Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk and most recently by Mark Ruffalo in The Avengers.

The two solo films were only moderately successful, with many fans and critics complaining about the CGI and the storytelling.

The version of Hulk in The Avengers is undoubtedly the best yet, though it remains to be seen if that incarnation of the emerald ogre could successfully carry a standalone feature. That's too much of a risk for Marvel Studios and at present, they are rather cautiously developing a new Hulk TV series instead.

Now that The Avengers has been a massive success, with particular praise for the look and portrayal of the Hulk, Ang Lee has been asked to reflect on what went wrong with »

Get pulled into a world of magic with the new trailer for director Louis Leterrier’s upcoming thriller ‘Now You See Me.’ The trailer begins with Morgan Freeman, who stars as Thaddeus Bradley, saying “Come in close, because the more you think you see, the easier it’ll be to fool you.” The trailer chronicles the FBI’s game of cat and mouse with The Four Horsemen. The FBI team is determined to stop the Horsemen, a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists who pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders.

‘Now You See Me’ Trailer: Can Mark Zuckerberg Outsmart Bruce Banner?

19 November 2012 3:30 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Seeing as it’s a Louis Leterrier movie, of course the first trailer for Now You See Me is high energy and loud. Jesse Eisenberg is yelling into a microphone, people are disappearing with flashes of electricity, Isla Fisher’s smile is blinding you, and the contents of a bank’s vault are raining down on a jacked up theater audience. And this is all before the action starts. Then you gets showdowns and chase scenes, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine trading dialogue about grizzled old man doom and gloom, and Mark Ruffalo looking like he’s right in his wheelhouse playing a frazzled and out of sorts police inspector trying to keep up with a team of ultra-competent, bank robbing magicians. Sounds like this movie has something for everyone, no? Check it out after the break, and let us know what you think. Well, it is a Leterrier movie, so »

Today we have 21 new photos from Now You See Me, a magician crime thriller from director Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk).

Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me Trailer Starring Jesse Eisenberg

19 November 2012 8:59 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Back in 2006, two dueling movies about magicians happened to hit theatres around the same time: Christopher Nolan's The Prestige and Neil Burger's The Illusionist. Now it appears that magic is back in vogue again as another wave of magic-related films are headed our way including Mandrake the Magician, McG's Magic Castle movie, and a new Houdini biopic. Before any of those even head into production, however, we will be getting something a little bit different: a heist flick that revolves around a group of magicians who use their skills to steal from the rich and give to the poor. The movie is called Now You See Me, and it stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco as this group of illusionists known as "The Four Horsemen", who face off against a team of FBI agents led by Mark Ruffalo. Although the premise is somewhat intriguing, »

Now You See Me trailer shows heist flick with a magic twist

19 November 2012 8:58 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Starring the interesting and fresh combination of Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco (brother of James), Morgan Freeman (who provides the voice-over, duh), Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo and Melanie Laurent, Now You See Me takes the heist movie genre and adds a pinch of magic dust and razzle-dazzle. The Four Horsemen, who steal from the rich and give to the poor, use the power of illusion, misdirection, grandiose spectacle and illusion to fool the crowds.

Of course, slight of hand isn't going to be enough of an explanation for how these massive, cross-country robberies are taking place and with FBI agents in hot pursuit, these tricky masters of deception are going to have to pull off the ultimate con in order to stay out of jail.

Directed by Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, Transporter), the first trailer for Now You See Me has just been released and »

‘Now You See Me’ Trailer: Bank-Robbing Magicians Plan One Last Score

18 November 2012 9:55 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

“Come in close, because the more you think you see, the easier it’ll be to fool you,” narrates Morgan Freeman as the veteran illusion debunker Thaddeus in the first trailer for Now You See Me.

That voiceover might bring back memories of Christian Bale’s “Are you watching closely?” from Christopher Nolan’s dueling illusionists film The Prestige – all the more so once Michael Caine shows up. However, this tale of professional do-daring magicians is an old-fashioned heist thriller infused with new life, courtesy of some flashy stage trickery (enhanced via the ‘magic’ of editing/special effects) and high-octane thrills directed by Louis Leterrier (The Transporter, Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans).

Now You See Me revolves around the exploits of The Four Horsemen – a group of Las Vegas magicians renowned for their hi-tech shows and mind-boggling stunts – brought to life by Jesse ...
