The project is being developed by Hammer in association with Ben Holden (The Quiet Ones, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death).

Watch the trailer from the 1957 British horror film.

Unused posters for the Watchmen movie have surfaced online.
The alternate artwork from Zack Snyder's adaptation of the classic comic have been revealed on Film.com.
The posters feature stills from the film and characters including Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre and Dr Manhattan.
"I wanted to do a re-elect Nixon guerrilla poster campaign, since those posters and that plot line are pretty prominent in the book, but that was shot down as being too obscure - 'Why would seeing re-elect Nixon posters make people want to see Watchmen?'" said designer Alex Griendling.
Perfecting the art of the puppy-dog eyes can be an effective way to get what you want, or in the case of our featured male actors, an effective way to win over a majority of the female (and probably male) population. Invented by our loyal furry friends (who know exactly what they're doing), it is almost impossible for one to avoid those wide dramatic eyes. Be it your furry pal asking for forgiveness after destroying the rug, or your significant other trying to persuade you to do something you'd really rather not, it is inevitable that one look will convince you to do almost anything for those taking advantage of it. Cracked starring David Sutcliffe had us won over as soon as Sutcliffe appeared on screen as Detective Aidan Black. The series itself is an intense, action-filled emotional ride that we can’t get enough of. Paired with Black’s heroism, »

Sympathy for Mr Vengeance's English-language remake has hired Hany Abu-Assad as director.
The original film is Park Chan-wook's predecessor to Oldboy and the first instalment in his acclaimed Vengeance Trilogy.
It centres around a deaf-mute man who seeks revenge after being ripped off when he saved money for his sister's operation.
Watch a trailer for the original Sympathy for Mr Vengeance below: »
Spike Lee's new Oldboy is almost upon us, but it's not the only installment of Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy to be getting an English-language makeover. As previously reported, Oldboy's predecessor Sympathy For Mr Vengeance is also re-developing fast under the aegis of producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian. And it seems a director has now been chosen, in the form of Paradise Now's Hany Abu-Assad.Abu-Assad remains best-known for 2005's excellent Paradise Now, about Palestinian suicide bombers in Tel Aviv. He revisited the Arab-Israeli conflict with this year's Omar, which picked up the Special Jury Prize at Cannes and was viewed by many as a return to form for the director following his woeful 2012 straight-to-dvd action film The Courier, with Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Mickey Rourke.He'll be hoping that Sympathy For Mr Vengeance is a better experience than that inauspicious Us debut, and you can't »

The internet exploded in a fit of rage this week as Warner Bros. revealed that former Daredevil turned Oscar-winning filmmaker Ben Affleck is set to don the cape and cowl as the next Dark Knight alongside Henry Cavill's Superman in the studio's Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman... and of course, the news didn't go down too well with fans. In fact, that's probably a bit of an understatement. It was like the summer of 1988 again - only this time with social media »

Warner Bros. has put an end to the intense speculation over the casting of the next Dark Knight by announcing that Ben Affleck (Daredevil, Argo) is set to star as Bruce Wayne / Batman alongside Henry Cavill's Superman in the sequel to Man of Steel.
"Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman," said Zack Snyder as part of the official announcement. "He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him."
Affleck will line-up alongside Cavill and returning Man of Steel stars Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Diane Lane (Martha Kent) in the eagerly-anticipated Batman vs. Superman, which has now been confirmed for release on July 17th, »

It’s not Jon Hamm, or Jeffrey Dean Morgan, or the 50 other actors that 50 other sites have claimed unnamed sources as telling them has either landed, is being considered, or is director Zack Snyder’s top choice to play Batman in Warner Bros.’ upcoming (and as yet, still untitled) Superman/Batman team-up movie. It’s Ben Affleck. The award-winning star and director of “Argo”, “The Town”, and the man who previously played a Marvel superhero, will be suiting up in the cape and cowl as a grizzled, veteran Batman in Snyder’s upcoming “Man of Steel” follow-up. Warner Bros. made the official announcement themselves via a press release, which, let’s face it, must be some kind of a first. Usually a fansite or one of the trades will break the news first. Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. »

Well, it's been a while since we've had any more names pulled out of the hat as potential candidates to take over the role of The Dark Knight in Warner Bros.' upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, but fear not as CosmicBookNews has came up with a few more this weekend.
According to the site, who has a dubious track record at best, Christopher Nolan has made his recommendation to Zack Snyder, tipping Wes Bentley (Ghost Rider, The Hunger Games) - who happens to be shooting Nolan's next film Interstellar as we speak - as Christian Bale's successor under the cape and cowl. Meanwhile, they also claim that Luke Evans (Immortals, The Crow) and Ben Affleck (Daredevil, Argo) will be offered screen tests, while screenwriter David S. Goyer is said to be keen on Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain).
These four actors become the latest »

Last year, Magic City was renewed for another season before the series even premiered. The ratings ended up being poor so one has to wonder if the Starz execs regretted that decision. Will it be cancelled or renewed for season three? We'll have to wait and see.
Magic City airs on Friday nights and there are eight episodes once again. The show's cast includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko, Steven Strait, Jessica Marais, Christian Cooke, Elena Satine, Dominik Garcia-Lorido, Taylor Blackwell, and Danny Huston.
Below are the most recent ratings for the second season of Magic City on Starz. The TV show's ratings are typically the best way to tell if a series will be cancelled or renewed for another season. These figures will be updated as the weeks progress so be sure to bookmark and return to this page:

Orlando Bloom, seriously?
Ever since the announcement was made at this year's Comic Con that the follow-up to Man of Steel would see Superman paired with - and in all likelihood, battling against - DC Comics compatriot Batman, speculation has been rife as to who might play the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder's sequel...
With everyone from Ryan Gosling to Josh Brolin to Jeffrey Dean Morgan to old hand Christian Bale being linked to the part, the Week in Geek has chosen to produce a follow-up of our own, to a feature first posted upon Man of Steel's release.
Our sequel to June's 'Superman on TV' blog is the imaginatively titled 'Batman on TV' - join us for look at the best and worst of the Dark Knight on the small screen.
According to Den of Geek, Morgan is speculated to be reuniting with director Zack Snyder to play the character of the masked crusader in the latest Warner Bros flick, Metro.co.uk reported.
A source from Warner Bros told The Daily Express that Bloom was considered apt to play the masked crusader even before the first casting calls.
The insider added that Bloom would be perfect to play Batman opposite Henry Cavill and he believes. »

Another day, another Batman casting rumour... according to The Daily Express, Warner Bros. may have already found their Dark Knight for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel Superman vs. Batman, with the newspaper claiming that Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lord of the Rings) "looks odds-on to get the part even before the first casting call. He would be perfect to play off Henry Cavill and I think Us audiences would be happy with two Brits as the joint male leads."
Now, before any Orlando Bloom fans get excited, it should be noted that The Express' report makes absolutely no reference to the Superman vs. Batman movie, instead claiming that Bloom and Cavill are set to play Batman and Superman in a Justice League film in 2017, with casting on Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter getting underway in the autumn. So, with that in mind, »

What I said last time about the summer being a fairly quiet time for the streaming world, please disregard. Rather than wait for the autumn when people are more inclined to slump on a sofa in front of the tube, Netflix, Lovefilm and a new contender have decided that everyone just loves good movies and TV and so have flooded the marketplace with good content in a battle to outdo one another. The winner again is you the consumer and the hardest part may be to actually choose just one of these outlets to subscribe to.
That new contender I talked about is Sky, who has thrown their hat into the ring with Now TV, which is essentially an on demand version of their Sky Movie channels available over the internet. If you have seen the Now TV website and thought they didn’t actually have much content then think again. »

Casting rumours abound for Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman movie. Specifically surrounding who's going to play Batman...
We suspect that, until the moment that Warner Bros confirms its choice to play Batman in the upcoming Batman/Superman movie, we're going to see a lot of names linked with the role of the Caped Crusader. Director Zack Snyder and writer David S Goyer haven't yet got a screenplay in place for the film, the follow-up to Man Of Steel, but that hasn't stopped the speculation game.
Since then, though, a few more faces have been thrown into the mix. Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan, for instance, was rumoured to be reuniting with director Zack Snyder by taking on the Batman role.

We're just a few days away from the arrival of the year's fourth superhero movie as Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Kick-Ass and Chloe Grace Moretz's Hit-Girl return to do battle with Christopher Mintz-Plasse's supervillain The Mother F*cker in Kick-Ass 2, and Universal has been releasing a steady stream of promotional material in the run up to its release this coming week.
