Every year, thousands of dogs are stolen, kept in tiny cages and then slaughtered for consumption for the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, according to a new PSA. Celebrities like Matt Damon, Joaquin Phoenix, Kate Mara, Rooney Mara and many more are speaking out to stop the cruelty. The celebrities teamed up with Marc Ching, the founder of the Animal Wellness Project who is on the ground in China trying to save dogs by the hundreds before the festival begins on June 21. "This is built upon the belief that if you torture or abuse the animal, it makes the meat taste »

TheDailyBeast.com recently interviewed actor Toby Kebbell for the fantasy-adventure film, "Warcraft", starring Travis Fimmel ("Vikings") and Paula Patton ("Precious"). During the interview, Kebbell talked about his previous films such as 20th Century Fox's "Fantastic Four" starring Miles Teller ("Whiplash"), Michael B. Jordan ("Creed"), Kate Mara ("The Martian"), and Jamie Bell ("Billy Elliot").
Kebbell talked about director Josh Trank's darker, grittier cut of the film saying:
"I tell you, the honest truth is [Trank] did cut a great film that you’ll never see. That is a shame. A much darker version, and you’ll never see it."
The actor revealed that he didn't take part in the aforementioned reshoots for the film saying at one point someone else portrayed Doctor Doom near the end of the film saying:
"I played Doom in three points: Walking down a corridor, killing the doctor and getting into the time machine, and lying on the bench. »

It’s been nearly a year since the catastrophe that was Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four and we’re still learning more about it. When the director officially denounced the movie via Twitter, he noted that he had a “great” version of the movie which “you’ll never see”, and now one of its stars has backed that up.
I tell you, the honest truth is [Trank] did cut a great film that you’ll never see”, Toby Kebbell told The Daily Beast. “That is a shame. A much darker version, and you’ll never see it.”
He also admitted that, for the majority of the movie, it’s someone else playing Doom as he wasn’t around the re-shoots that were rumoured to be directed by Simon Kinberg and Matthew Vaughn. “I played Doom in three points: walking down a corridor, killing the doctor and getting into the time machine, »

While we will never truly know about the debacle behind-the-scenes of last year's "Fantastic Four" reboot, what is widely known is that studio 20th Century Fox demaned reshoots and additional filming of a whole bunch of the Josh Trank-directed movie including much of the second half.
What wasn't clear at the time is how much of the movie was completed before the reshoots went forward, but today one of the film's stars suggests it was more than you might think. Toby Kebbell, who played Doctor Doom in the film, tells The Daily Beast that an alternate and much better version of the film actually exists:
"I tell you, the honest truth is [Josh Trank] did cut a great film that you'll never see. That is a shame. A much darker version, and you'll never see it."
The only other hint of such a cut came from Trank himself who said he'd »

There has been a lot of talk about how Batman V Superman is somehow a box office bomb, but it hasn't even been a year since Fox's Fantastic Four reboot reminded us what a true box office bomb actually is. It is one thing to not quite meet very lofty expectations, but it is another to have a huge superhero movie with a huge cast and marketing to barely make back its production budget even with international box office factored in.
A lot has been made of the failure that was the Fantastic Four reboot, which was absolutely panned by critics and currently sits at an abysmal 9 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. However, in a recent interview with The Daily Beast, actor Toby Kebbell who played Doctor Doom in the film, claims that a much better version of the film actually exists. Here is what he had to say.

Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot was a critical and commercial flop, and possibly one of the most disastrous comic book movies in recent memory. The director disowned it days before it was set to be released (something analysts believe knocked a good $10 million off its opening weekend), and the insane behind the scenes stories we’ve heard were a PR nightmare for Fox.
Despite all of that, writer and producer Simon Kinberg maintains that the studio still has plans for the Fantastic Four franchise. Many fans are optimistically hoping that the rights will revert to Marvel Studios, but it seems as if Fox are going to have at least one more try before throwing in the towel and letting Disney get their hands on an IP they can make valuable again.
After explaining that he believes a dark and grounded approach to the Fantastic Four was a mistake, Kinberg »

We finally have an update on the status of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure." It was originally scheduled to come out February 17, 2017, but after star Dylan O'Brien was seriously injured during filming, production was shut down. As far as we know, it's still shut down, but Fox shuffled its schedule around and announced that "The Death Cure" will eventually get itself back up and running, and it will now be released on January 12, 2018.
O'Brien was hurt in mid-March, but "The Death Cure" director Wes Ball and company originally expected the star to be back on set to finish the film within "a few weeks." But a later update from O'Brien's publicist noted that the actor's injuries were "very serious" and he needed more time to recover. That led to the late April production shutdown. Not long after that, it was reported that O'Brien was in talks for the lead role in "American Assassin, »

It looks like fans of the Maze Runner film series will have to wait an extra year for the third film, entitled Maze Runner: The Death Cure, to hit theaters. According to Deadline, the film has officially been pushed back from its original February 17, 2017 date to January 12, 2018.
This decision comes in the wake of the on-set injury of one if its stars Dylan O'Brien, who was hurt while filming a car scene for the threequel.
At the time of the injury back in March, it was unclear how extensive his injuries were. Here's what the studio had to say at the time:
“Dylan O’Brien was injured yesterday while filming ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ in Vancouver, Canada. He was immediately transferred to a local hospital for observation and treatment. Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers. Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery. »

This won’t come as much of a surprise given that production was shut down indefinitely last month following Dylan O’Brien’s on-set accident in March, but 20th Century Fox has announced that it has pushed back the release of The Maze Runner: The Death Cure from its original date of February 17th 2017 to January 12th, 2018. As yet, there’s no word as to when production will resume.
As well as pushing back the final chapter of The Maze Runner series, Fox has also dated several of its upcoming movies, as well as shuffling dates for several others, including its two recently announced mystery Marvel movies. Here’s the schedule, courtesy of Deadline:

In the months leading up to the release of last year's James Bond adventure Spectre, franchise star Daniel Craig made more than this fair share of disparaging remarks about both the franchise itself and the title character, 007. It seemed clear from many industry observers that Spectre would be Daniel Craig's last James Bond movie, although nothing has been set in stone quite yet. While we wait for the official announcement, it seems another actor has thrown his hat in the ring as a possible replacement, Fantastic Four star Jamie Bell.
Deadline reports that Jamie Bell has been in discussions about the role with producer Barbara Broccoli, one of the longtime 007 producers alongside Michael G. Wilson, who is also producing Jamie Bell's new project Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool. Nothing is confirmed, and this report reveals that there isn't even a working script for James Bond 25 yet. »

Last summer, Ex Machina told the story of what happens when a genius decides to create artificial intelligence, only to see it go awry. This summer, Morgan looks to tell that same sort of story, and it's hard not to notice the similarities between the two on paper. However, after watching the first teaser for Morgan, we not only have faith that the two films will be wildly different, we also have to praise whoever plotted this sparse, intriguing teaser. Watch it for yourself below. With 20th Century Fox's release of the trailer on YouTube, Morgan has introduced the public to its sci-fi mystery in a way that most films choose to ignore when it comes to advertising. Instead of filling the trailer with the usual array of cut away scenes of tension and action, the trailer for the Kate Mara starring film decides to fill in a little bit »
Anya Taylor-Joy made a strong impression in Robert Eggers' fantastic The Witch as a teenage girl accused of practicing black magic in 17th century New England. Now the actress is back playing another misunderstood character: an artificial human who comes under review by a corporate risk-management consultant (Kate Mara) who must decide whether or not to terminate her following a presumably violent incident. Here's another interesting thing about Morgan: it was directed by Ridley Scott's son Luke Scott (the elder Scott is involved as a producer), here making his feature directorial debut. Whether he's as talented as his famous father remains to be seen, but the trailer is a tantalizing, slow-burn piece of business that has me sufficiently intrigued. Check it out below. Morgan hits theaters on September 2. »

The teaser offers the first cryptic look at the titular character, played by Taylor-Joy (“The Witch”), a seemingly innocent “human” who is in fact quite threatening. Morgan is dangerous enough to be enclosed and confined so that a corporate troubleshooter and consultant, played by Mara, can help investigate what looks like a bloody and terrifying accident.
“Nice to meet you … in the flesh,” says Morgan to Mara’s character.
Written by Seth W. Owen and directed by Scott’s son, Luke Scott, the film centers on the difficult decision of whether or not to eliminate this artificial being. Morgan is a teenager, but her capacities exceed most normal humans, and she’s evolving rapidly.
The trailer features echoey voices, of which Mara is one of them, grappling with the troubling reality of this “human. »

Morgan: Kate Mara is featured in the first official photo from Morgan, a sci-fi thriller from director Luke Scott. His father, Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner), is producing the movie, which follows "a corporate troubleshooter who’s sent to a remote location to evaluate an artificially created, rapidly developing lifeform." Anya Taylor-Joy, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook and Paul Giamatti also star. See more new photos below; the movie will open in theaters on September 2. Update: Watch the new trailer below, too.

Morgan follows a corporate risk-management consultant who has to decide and determine whether or not to terminate an artificial being's life that was made in a laboratory environment. Certainly sounds familiar to a little film by the name of Ex MacHina, although Morgan may have gorier results.
