A while back, when we released the 400th episode of the Sound On Sight podcast, a few close friends and longtime listeners requested we compile a list of our favorite shows we recorded over the years. Now that the podcast has officially come to an end, I decided to finally set aside some time in my schedule and give them what they want. Initially, I set out to pick ten, but after 500 recordings and 8 long years, it was simply too hard to choose so few, so I opted for 20 instead. In selecting these episodes, I tried to show the wide range of genres we covered over the years, including Spaghetti Westerns, Italian Horror, Southern Gothic, underground cult, family friendly, foreign language and even Hollywood classics. We’ve been blessed with several guest hosts and interviews with many filmmakers including genre legends George A. Romero and John Landis, to name a few. »

Seeing as he doesn’t have any more commitments to Sony’s wall-crawler following the disappointing The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Deadline is reporting that director Marc Webb is filling out his upcoming slate.
First for the filmmaker will be Gifted, which is set to start shooting this autumn with Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) set to star as a man who sues for custody of his gifted neice.
Webb plans to follow gifted with the Black List script The Only Living Boy In New York, which will see Miles Teller (Fantastic Four) as a college graduate who ends up in a love triangle with his father’s mistress. Jeff Bridges (R.I.P.D.) and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) are in talks to round out the cast.

Evans is set to star in Webb’s upcoming drama “Gifted” for Fox Searchlight.
Although Evans has made a name for himself as Captain America in the Marvel universe, the actor has been drawn to more dramatic roles lately. He recently starred and made his directorial debut in the Sundance drama “Before We Go” opposite Alice Eve. Evans also appeared in the critically-raved sci-fi action pic “Snowpiercer.” He can be seen next reprising his role of »

Having left behind one Marvel superhero, The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb is preparing to team up with another. Captain America star Chris Evans is set for Webb’s new movie Gifted, a Black List drama set up at Fox Searchlight. Meanwhile, Webb’s other upcoming project The Only Living Boy in New York is also making some progress. […]

That project, also setup at Fox Searchlight, is moving to Fox 2000. Teller is attached to play a recent college grad who learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. When he tries to stop it, he becomes involved with the woman as well. »

The ferocious rhymes of hip-hop icons N.W.A.’s controversial 1988 anthem “F–k tha Police” scarcely seem to have aged when they blast on to the soundtrack of “Straight Outta Compton,” echoing into a world where the abuse of black Americans at the hands of law-enforcement officials remains common headline news. But if “Compton” is undeniably of the moment, it’s also timeless in its depiction of how artists and writers transform the world around them into angry, profane, vibrant and singular personal expression. A conventional music-world biopic in outline, but intensely human and personal in its characterizations and attention to detail, director F. Gary Gray’s movie is a feast for hip-hop connoisseurs and novices alike as it charts the West Coast rap superstars’ meteoric rise, fractious in-fighting and discovery that the music business can be as savage as the inner-city streets. A very smart piece of »

Over the course Edge of Tomorrow and Christopher McQuarrie’s recent box office hit Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise has been fortunate to star opposite strong female leads in Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson, respectively. Now, with Cruise primed to return as the one-man reign of terror later this year, sources close to the nascent project have told The Wrap that Avengers star Cobie Smulders is in talks to co-lead Jack Reacher 2.
Should all the kinks be ironed out, the outlet reports that Smulders would be in line to play a character known as Danika – though whether this is a pseudonym of some form is up for question, considering that Danika isn’t a prominent role in Lee Child’s prestigious novel series. Nevertheless, this would mean that the actress would supplant Gone Girl‘s Rosamund Pike, who acted as the leading female of the original Jack Reacher »

After her attacker is convicted and jailed for the crime, Miranda cannot seem to put the attack behind her.

After playing Agent Maria Hill in the blockbuster “Avengers” movies, Cobie Smulders is poised to add another action franchise to her resume, as she’s in early talks to play the female lead opposite Tom Cruise in “Jack Reacher 2,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap. Ed Zwick is set to direct from a script by Richard Wenk that Zwick recently rewrote with longtime collaborator Marshall Herskovitz. Rosamund Pike played the female lead in the original “Jack Reacher,” but as evidenced by his “Mission: Impossible” franchise, Cruise likes to switch up his female leads to keep things fresh. »

Let’s get this out of the way immediately – Return to Sender, a so-called “thriller” that exists solely to capitalize on the icily serene beauty of star Rosamund Pike, is no Gone Girl. Artless, queasy and agonizingly dull from first frame to last, it’s more akin to a particularly ugly Lifetime Original Movie than that delectably vicious cult phenomenon or really anything with which you’d expect to see a star of Pike’s caliber associated.
And yet, director Fouad Mikati somehow landed the Oscar nominee – whose deer-in-headlights terror on screen could easily have been elicited by her realization that Return to Sender will always lurk on her IMDb page. She plays dedicated nurse Miranda, who tends to her patients with practiced precision but shows none of the same enthusiasm for her love life. Miranda, unfortunately, is a pancake-flat character, made ever flatter by Patricia Beauchamp and Joe Gossett’s howlingly awful script. »

At some point in “Return to Sender,” a character calls another, “Stupid and predictable.” I could have easily repeated that sentiment as my review for this uninspired thriller and called it a day. What we have here is a misguided attempt at creating an intelligent and thought-provoking thriller about a controversial subject that’s far from intelligent and insightful, and as far away from thrilling as you can possibly get. The incredibly simplistic story opens with Miranda (Rosamund Pike), an ambitious nurse about to be promoted to the prestigious surgery department of her hospital (a fact that’s pounded into the audience’s skulls every couple of minutes in order to pay off in clunky fashion during the climax), finally agreeing to go on a blind date set up by one of her colleagues. Unfortunately for Miranda, the man she thought to be her date turns out to be a »

Harder Candy: Pike Headlines Predictably Exploitative Rape Thriller
It seems Rosamund Pike is now the girl most likely to…. exact ruthless retribution on her instigators, if judging from the latest indie thriller Return to Sender, unfortunately arriving on the heels of her Oscar nominated success in last year’s comparably themed David Fincher film, Gone Girl. But the pedigree of auteur assistance is not on hand with Fouad Mikati’s sophomore effort, his first film since 2010’s Operation: Endgame. Somehow, he amassed a rather respectable cast for this grindhouse knockoff that could have easily premiered on Lifetime if Pike hadn’t suddenly become such a hot commodity. To be fair, we’ll have to wait another year or so to appreciate the actress in some higher quality offerings, and by then this will most likely be forgotten about.
Surgical nurse Miranda Wells (Pike) seems to have a bright future ahead of her. »

He follows in the footsteps of Kenneth Branagh, Hugh Bonneville, Tom Hiddleston, Rosamund Pike and Holby City star Hugh Quarshie, who in 2012 became the first black actor to play the role of Bond in audio form reading Dr No as part of a Classic Bond boxset.
"I am officially the only person on planet Earth who can legitimately say: 'I am the new James Bond'," said Oyelowo. Even saying that name is the cinematic equivalent of doing the 'to be or not to be' speech.
"I was asked specifically by the Fleming estate, which is really special. »
Miranda Wells (Rosamund Pike) talks about her potential new job as a surgical nurse in our exclusive clip from Return to Sender, arriving in movie theaters August 14 from Rlj Enterainment. Miranda's colleague Gloria (Camryn Manheim) can't understand why she would want to transfer into the surgical nurse field. While Gloria says she can handle patients "puking and pissing" on her, she can't fathom the "revolting" nature of surgery. This scene takes place long before this thriller really picks up the pace.

But when she agrees to a blind date and the wrong man comes to her door...her perfect world is shattered by a brutal assault.
