In a week that's seen Bryan Cranston (Godzilla, Breaking Bad) confirming that he was never approached about the role of Lex Luthor for Batman vs. Superman, director Zack Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder have spoken about leaks, with Deborah stating that: "Things get leaked so often these days, it's a shame because even casing announcements, or whatever, you're in the middle of a process and sometimes they're so off base -- and then it gets picked up by multiple »

Frankenstein is set for release 16 January 2015 and they’re shooting the movie in the UK right now. Reader Christopher Heaney (@darthelvis) has informed us that they’re shooting at the Manchester Town Hall and has uploaded a number of revealing shots to his Flikr account.
The period piece looks absolutely fantastic equipped with huge dresses and numerous top hats and the set decoration looks like it’s come straight out of diagon alley. You can also see Radcliffe sporting a new rather long haircut.
You can see some of the images below or click here for the full gallery.

Today's batch of MPAA ratings is dominated by one word films as Disney's new Disneynature feature Bears scores a G rating, David Gordon Green's Joe starring Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan received an R rating, John Curran's 2013 festival film, Tracks, starring Mia Wasikowska and rising star, Adam Driver, landed a PG-13; and Relativity's Oculus held onto its R rating after a so-called "re-rate". Also included in today's rating is Ned Benson's The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, which I haven't added to the database yet because I don't know how the Weinstein Co. is going to handle the release. There is a Him installment (featuring James McAvoy) and a Her installment, telling the same story from Eleanor's perspective, she being played by Jessica Chastain. Once I hear more about the release plan I'll get it into the database, but for now both installments scored an R rating. I've »

Hugh Jackman is no stranger to the ways of Hollywood. After his 14-year tenure as Wolverine, he’s said that someone else playing the character is inevitable.
While on the set of “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the actor told IGN, “Look, that’s inevitable, man. Anyone who thinks they’re indispensable in this business is fooling themselves. But I feel unbelievably blessed to have this part.”
Jackman has played the ageless mutant seven times.
“Every day I walk on the set with the claws and the hair, I thank my lucky stars. I don’t take any of it for granted,” he said. “To think that in a second version we’d have this cast and this director, and you guys don’t know the script, but I would say probably the best script of all of them, is pretty amazing.”

Could Hugh Jackman be done with his iconic Wolverine character after 14 years and 7 different movies? During IGN's visit to the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which hits theaters May 23, the actor revealed that it's "inevitable" another actor will eventually take over as Logan, though it isn't clear when this transition to a new Wolverine will take place, since producer Lauren Shuler Donner made it clear that she wants to keep working with the actor for as long as possible.
While he has a much bigger role in X-Men: Days of Future Past, where he is sent back to the past to prevent a war that could alter their future, Hugh Jackman only had a cameo appearance in X-Men: First Class, which is set in the 1960s. Since Wolverine doesn't exactly age, due to his healing abilities, it made sense to use him instead of another actor portraying Logan. »
With the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past this May, Hugh Jackman will have made seven appearances as Wolverine, and while talking to IGN, the star has discussed his time as the clawed hero, and whether he thinks Fox had given any consideration to recasting the role of Logan, particularly with a younger actor for 2011's X-Men: First Class:
"I’m sure they had the discussion. They didn’t mention it to me, obviously! Look, that’s inevitable, man. Anyone who thinks they're indispensable in this business is fooling themselves. But I feel unbelievably blessed to have this part. I never thought in a million years I'd get to play him seven times. Every day I walk on the set with the claws and the hair, I thank my lucky stars. I don't take any of it for granted. To think that in a second version we'd have this cast and this director, »

Last year, when Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past was filming in Montreal, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. For those not familiar with the story, the movie finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants. The film also takes place in the distant future, so we’re going to see the original X-Men cast and what will happen if Wolverine fails. Trust me, Days of Future Past is a very cool storyline, and a perfect way to have the old and new cast in one film. During a break in filming, I participated in a group interview with producer Hutch Parker. He talked about how the project came together, »

We're delighted that Leonardo DiCaprio got nominated. And Her. And Philomena's Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope. We actually agreed with a vast number of Oscar noms this year. However, there were some films and actors who we felt didn't get the recognition they deserved, so we decided to honour them in a different form.
Below are Digital Spy's Alternative Oscar Awards, celebrating this year's greatest who missed out on a nomination. Read on to find out the nominees and who we crowned the best of the rest.

Shawn Ashmore has opened up about returning to the role of Iceman for X-Men Days of Future Past.
X-Men Days of Future Past: The making of Bryan Singer's superhero epic
Ashmore has recently expressed his thoughts on combining the casts of both the original X-Men trilogy and First Class.
"It's amazing," he told Access Hollywood.
"The great thing about these movies is not only do you spend a fair amount of time together shooting the film 'cause you shoot for a long time on a big sort of studio, tent pole movie like this, but then you go off for a couple months, everybody does their own thing, you come back for sort of like the press tour."
The actor continued: "After The Last Stand »
Back in December 'The Woman in Black' star Daniel Radcliffe was spotted on set of 'Lucky Number Slevin' director Paul McGuigan's latest retelling of 'Frankenstein'. Radcliffe plays the role of Igor, the fictional assistant of Victor Von Frankenstein (payed by James McAvoy ('X-Men: First Class')), and once more the chap has been papped on set in his period garb. The Twentieth Century Fox production is currently shooting in London with McGuigan helming from a script provided by 'Chronicle' scribe Max Landis. The strong supporting cast includes the sexy Jessica Brown Findlay ('Downton Abbey'), 'Sherlock' creator Mark Gatiss, and the excellent Andrew Scott (who played Moriarty in the modern day retelling of 'Sherlock'). Head below for the snaps. »
Speaking at the WhatsOnStage Awards last week, Radcliffe joked that he is having trouble maintaining his hair extensions.
"I don't mind how it looks but I mind dealing with it. I don't know why any man would have it voluntarily," he said.
"The amount of work it takes, having to dry it - doing anything to it is a f**king nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn't be growing my hair this long in my own time."
Frankenstein will open in cinemas in January »
Some more imagery of Daniel Radcliffe as Igor in 20th Century Fox's next stab at the classic tale of Frankenstein has arrived via the Daily Mail, and we have the eye candy right here. Look for the flick in theatres on January 6, 2015.
Paul McGuigan is at the helm of this revisionist take on Mary Shelley's masterpiece. Based on a script by Max Landis (Chronicle), this adaptation of Shelley's novel of the same name puts a more sci-fi spin on the classic story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment.
More as it comes.

Review Robert Keeling 27 Feb 2014 - 07:00
Our daily look-back at the superlative Band Of Brothers continues with episode four, Replacements...
Read the previous part in this series, here.
It’s made clear throughout this series that the men who trained together at Toccoa and took part in the Normandy landings shared a particularly special bond. The replacements who were drafted in to replace fallen soldiers therefore had to work hard to earn the respect of their fellow men.
This episode’s central focus is Denver ‘Bull’ Randleman (Michael Cudlitz), a Staff Sergeant who was widely held by Winters and the other men to be one of the finest soldiers in the company. Quietly spoken and full of home-spun wisdom, Bull is shown throughout the episode helping out and geeing up the new recruits. The Company is involved in Operation Market Garden, an ultimately doomed campaign where the Allied forces parachuted »
New images and videos continue to be released from the upcoming X-Men movie, "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Yesterday, a new clip went up on Instagram (see below) along with the phrase "Fight to save mutantkind. #XMen." There's also another still of Wolverine now as well. As has been well publicized, Bryan Singer has returned to helm the new X-Men movie after having directed both the original "X-Men" and the sequel. He did not then direct either "X-Men: The Last Stand" or "X-Men: First Class." We will not attempt to break down all the quick images we see in the Instagram video, but between the very serious faces and pulsing music, it does do a wonderful job of building one's anticipation. Check it out and see for yourself. The official synopsis for the new movie reads as follows: "The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the »
