Author: Zehra Phelan

Related: Venom Film News

Although no word of which character he is in talks to play it has been confirmed that he will not be playing the films villain Carnage, even though he was previously linked to the character which is still yet to be cast.

Tom Hardy leads the cast as Eddie Brock, who in the comics was a photographer; Brock later becomes Venom after bonding with a Symbiote. Venom, conceived as a super villain, became somewhat of an anti hero. A Symbiote is a sentient alien, with a gooey, almost liquid-like form. With any real-world symbiotes, it requires a host, usually human, to bond with for its survival. After bonding, the Symbiote endows »

From Alison Wright on FX’s “The Americans” and Hank Azaria on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” who are returning to series in roles where they had become fan favorites, to Matthew Rhys and Riz Ahmed, who each had standout work on HBO’s “Girls,” this year’s four Emmy categories for guest talent are stocked with nominees whose work has set the Twittersphere ablaze.

Warner Bros to release sci-fi mash-up adaptation on March 30, 2018.

Steven Spielberg and author Ernest Cline kicked off the Warner Bros panel on Saturday morning with the first trailer from 2018 release Ready Player One.

Spielberg’s adaptation of Cline’s bestselling pop culture mash-up about a video game ace who takes on an evil corporation in the race to control the Oasis virtual reality platform is due out on March 30 2018.

Footage showed star Tye Sheridan as Wade Watts (known as Parzival in Oasis) slotting on his goggles and haptic gloves and zipping into a world filled with recognisable elements from The Iron Giant to Tron to a DeLorean – of particular significance to Spielberg who famously featured the car in the Back To The Future series.

“When I read Ernie’s book it was like the most amazing flash-forward and flashback at the same time,” Spielberg said, adding: “I read the book and said they’re going to need »

Steven Spielberg: Iron Giant Is Major Part of ‘Ready Player One’

22 July 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Spielberg wasn’t sure he was the right director for “Ready Player One,” his upcoming science-fiction epic.

During a panel discussion at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, Spielberg said that after reading Ernest Cline’s best-selling novel about a virtual reality-addicted future, his first thought was “They’re going to need a younger director.”

Spielberg was joined onstage by Cline and the film’s stars, Tye Sheridan, Ben Mendelsohn, and T.J. Miller. Fans in Hall H were treated to a trailer for a film that overflowed with shout-outs to several geek staples. The gaming world that “Ready Player One” depicts enables players to interact with characters from pop culture staples from the ’80s and ’90s, such as “The Iron Giant,” “Tron,” “Akira,” “Lord of the Rings,” “Back to the Future,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street,” to name a few.

"There's nowhere left to go... Nowhere, except the Oasis." Warner Bros has debuted the first teaser trailer for Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ready Player One, the geeky novel about a kid in the future who logs into a virtual reality world and plays games to win the ultimate prize. I'm so excited to finally see something from this, and I still can't believe Spielberg is actually directing. Young actor Tye Sheridan stars as Wade Watts, known in the gaming world as Parzival. The cast includes Mark Rylance as the game's creator, James Halliday, as well as T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Letitia Wright, and Kae Alexander. There's some great references to The Iron Giant, Back to the Future, and E.T. of course, and this is only just the first tease. Dang I'm hyped for this!! Very excited to see more.

The First trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One throws us into an 80s pop culture maelstrom

22 July 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

This is one of the biggest trailers to come out of San Diego Comic Con this year. And our first steps into the world of Oasis and Ernest Cline’s pop-culture heavy Ready Player One is an assault on the senses.

Tye Sheridan stars alongside Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg and T. J. Miller in the much hyped return of Steven Spielberg to the world of sci-fi. Personally I still his Kubrick-inspired A.I. is a much misunderstood film and far better than its reputation suggests. His War of the Worlds is one of the very best sci-fi films of the post 9/11 generation and we’ve never strayed too far from those Close Encounters we enjoyed almost 40 years ago.

This new film seems perfect for Spielberg, not least because he is the embodiment of a 80s pop culture Gandalf. Embedded in this trailer are dozens »
