One of the better games of the last few years The Last of Us is on track for a film adaptation. Now the long history of games-to-films is a mixed bag of success, Mortal Kombat flopped, Resident Evil smashed it, though had nothing to do with the original games except for the zombies. One of the more true game-to-film adaptations is the first Silent Hill, though that was too out-there for the regular viewing public. This bittersweet history will have some fans of the game worrying what will happen to their beloved Ellie and Joel.
The news from this week’s San Diego Comic Com might just ease some of those nerves though as one of the game directors Neil Druckman will produce alongside Mr Evil Dead, Sam Raimi. Druckman will have a large degree of creative control, meaning the story shouldn’t veer too far away from the original »

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is a film about apes. The title isn't misleading or a metaphor or anything. This is a movie about primates and though there are human protagonists sharing screentime and functioning as significant pieces in the plot, it's very much an ape affair. Key characters - Caesar, Cornelia, Koba - are all chimpanzees.
Actually, that's not completely true. In fact it's a damn dirty ape lie for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is a work of great deception. This fresh bestial blockbuster employs the most state-of-art moviemaking technology to achieve its trickery, ironically bringing the primitive world to visceral life on screen by using the most advanced techniques available.
The truth about those convincing, hyper-real chimpanzees? Caesar is played by Andy Serkis, »
Earlier today, the Rupert Murdoch-owned 21st Century Fox put in a massive $80 billion takeover bid to purchase Time Warner, a move which would have put Fox superhero properties such as X-Men and The Fantastic Four under the same roof as Warner Bros.' DC properties Justice League and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although Time Warner rejected the bid, New York Times sources reveal that Fox will try to acquire the media conglomerate again.
If this deal were to happen, it would make Disney's acquisitions of Marvel and LucasFilm, which both cost $4 billion apiece, look like child's play in comparison, with the Fox/Time Warner deal valued at 10 times more than both the Marvel and LucasFilm deals combined. Of course, even if the 21st Century Fox/Time Warner sale does go through, there still may be a number of legal issues to sort out before X-Men and Justice League »
London — Entertainment One is well-placed to retain its position as the U.K.’s top independent distributor after a strong first half of the year, and a muscular slate for the remaining months. But, as Alex Hamilton, managing director, eOne Films U.K., tells Variety, the company has aspirations to be considered on a par with the Hollywood majors.
EOne has been the top indie in the U.K. for three of the past four years, and last year finished ahead of two studios, Sony and Paramount, with its box office totaling more than £100 million ($171 million) for the first time.

Vampire Academy, 2014
Directed by Mark Waters
Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.
Based off the book series of the same name, Vampire Academy is basically Twilight meets Harry Potter and is every bit as lazy as it sounds. It’s lack of subtly, terrible acting and dreadful script are just a few reasons as to why Vampire Academy fails so badly. Given a cinema release in the States but released straight-to-dvd in the UK, this is a movie that even the easily-led Ya Enthusiasts would struggle to find positives.
Vampire Academy sees two teenage girls on the run from their school for vampires. »

Having directed 3 X-Men movies (his latest being X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Superman Returns, you would expect Bryan Singer to be moving away from the comic book world before heading back in for X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. However, Tracking Boards show that his company, Bat Hat Harry, have acquired the rights to The Age of Heroes by James Hudnall for a big screen adaptation.
The Age of Heroes was released in the 1990s. Here’s the synopsis:
When the gods were born, they remade the world in the image of their dreams. This was known as the Age of Gods. When man was created along with other races of beings, fantastic cities were raised, insane magics were forged and unimaginable wars were fought, as the gods battled for supremacy over all creation. This was known as the Age of Wonders. When the gods fled and man was left to make »

X-Men: Days of Future Past will receive a director's cut edition for its home entertainment release later this year.
Producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed through her Twitter account that a revised version of the mutant blockbuster will be available on Blu-ray.
The disc will include an extended scene with Anna Paquin's Rogue, which was omitted from the film's theatrical cut.
In the sequence, Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) rescue Rogue from the Xavier Mansion, now a military base guarded by Sentinels, so that Rogue can absorb Kitty Pryde's (Ellen Page) powers and keep Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) stationed in the past.
X-Men writer-producer Simon Kinberg told Digital Spy in May that the scene "is as good as anything else in the movie, but I really wrote it as an appendage to the movie because I wanted to see Rogue [and] not because it services the »

While Anna Paquin still appears in the original theatrical cut of the film, her two main Rogue scenes were excised to much disappointment long before the film even hit the big screen. With so many characters and such an expansive story, it was hard to »

With the recent revelation that none other than Kevin Spacey will be taking a starring role in the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, it started getting the imaginative juices flowing as to who else would be a good candidate for being immortalised in video game history by lending their talents to the world of gaming.
Of course, Mr. Spacey’s newest role isn’t a first for the industry; Ellen Page’s recent performance in Beyond: Two Souls gained her significant praise, even if the game itself garnered mixed reviews. Hollywood actors are becoming increasingly more common going forward too, with the likes of Kiefer Sutherland recently replacing David Hayter as the voice of Metal Gear Solid’s Snake, and we’re seeing famous actors increasingly taking up roles, so his performance may be one of voice only, but there’s no denying that it’s a growing trend. »

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, nobody told Lindsay Lohan.
The 28-year-old actress is suing Take-Two Interactive and subsidiary publisher and developer Rockstar Games, for a character in their popular video game Grand Theft Auto V.
According to Forbes, Lohan's suit accuses the game of making "unequivocal" references to Lohan through the character Lacey Jonas.
"The portraits of the Plaintiff (Lohan) incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff's clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by the Plaintiff that were for sale to the public at least two years" the suit claims.
Lohan isn't the only star to take offense to her apparent likeness being used in a video game, as Ellen Page voiced her disapproval of the character Ellie in Naughty Dog's The Last of Us.

Concept Artist Jerad S. Marantz has released a group of new photos that give us a look at some of his ideas for Angelina Jolie's title character Maleficent as her costume morphed into what we see on screen now. he also has a different take on Ellen Page's Kitty Pryde in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Both projects have already premiered and have brought in almost $1 Billion worldwide. Take a look at some of the alternate designs we might have seen in the movie, first with Angelina Jolie's dark fairy Maleficent.
Oh, Canada. Sometimes we forget how much talent you hold within your borders.
The number of stellar actors/actresses coming out of the Great White North is nothing short of remarkable. Considering Canada has a smaller population than the entire state of California, it's pretty amazing. Stop and think about it: Ryan Gosling, Cobie Smulders, Christopher Plummer, Jim Carrey, Ellen Page ... the list goes on and on.
So in honour of Canada's 147th birthday on July 1, we present to you our very favourite Canadian movie actors.
We couldn't possibly name every single Canadian film actor out there, so we just chose a few of our favourites. If there is a very glaring omission, please let us know and we might include!

Concept artist, Jerad S. Marantz, updated his official website with concept art that he created for Walt Disney Pictures' Maleficent and 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The images below, feature alternate designs for Angelina Jolie's semi-villainous title character and Ellen Page's mutant-time-machine, Kitty Pryde. Both films are doing very well at the box office. This past weekend, X-Men: Days of Future Past became the top grossing film of 2014 when it hit the $713M mark, and Maleficent joined the $200M club (domestic) in its fifth week of release. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also reached the $200M benchmark but it took nine weeks to do so. The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-men: Days Of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: »
After helping the X-Men franchise to hit a combined $3 billion earlier in the week, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has now pushed its worldwide total to $712.7 million this weekend, overtaking rival Marvel superhero movies The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($703.7 million) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($711.2 million) to become the highest-grossing movie of the year so so far.
Days of Future Past still faces some competition to close 2014 as the biggest earner, with Transformers: Age of Extinction, Guardians of the Galaxy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Interstellar, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies all likely to enjoy solid box office returns.
