"It turned out great, it will not disappoint you. Whoo, it's powerful, it's great, It's not a joyful movie, but it's a very intense movie." Ok, so Woody Harrelson has already seen "Out Of The Furnace," and now we're doubly stoked for it. So wait, for those that may not know, what is it exactly? "Out Of The Furnace" is an upcoming American revenge thriller directed by Scott Cooper and it features an awesome cast that includes Christian Bale, Forest Whitaker, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe. Famed composer Alberto Iglesias ("Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy") is leading the score and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder is writing an original tune for the movie. Clearly there's a lot of talent involved. Originally dated for October 4th, Relativity Media has just announced they have bumped the movie into the heart of Oscar season: November 27 in limited release »

Exclusive: Sensing it has a movie that can create heat during Oscar season, Relativity is moving the Scott Cooper-directed revenge thriller Out Of The Furnace from October 4 to a limited release on November 27, expanding that run beginning December 6th. The film stars Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe. Crazy Heart helmer Cooper wrote the script with Brad Ingelsby. Bale plays a simple man in a blue collar job at the local steel mill, who cares for his terminally ill father at night. His brother (Affleck) returns from Iraq and falls in with a ruthless crime ring. When he disappears, that simple man takes matters into his own hands, and sets out to seek justice for his sibling. Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran produced with Scott Free’s Ridley Scott, with Michael Costigan also producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh. »

While only a few of us (or is it just me?) dread The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set for release on May 2, 2014, Sony is moving forward on a third and fourth film, scheduling June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018 for those films. Sony Pictures’ Chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Jeff Blake, said in a press release, “Spider-Man is our most important, most successful, and most beloved franchise, so we’re thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years.” Yeah, sure. Whatever.
The Canadian based Sci-fi series Continuum, which is near completion of its second season up north, and just starting here on the SyFy Channel, has been picked up for a third season there. It’s a fairly good bet that Syfy will probably air season three sometime in 2014.
Not surprisingly, the recent story about the finding of lost Doctor Who episodes has »

According to Deadline, John C. Reilly is not just in talks, but is in fact Confirmed to play Rhomann Dey, a Centurion in Nova Corps on planet Xander. Centurions are supposedly known for their ability to lift 20 tons, so I’m curious to see Reilly in this role!

And so, after an absence of seven years, Superman returned to the big screen yesterday with the release of Zack Snyder's hotly-anticipated reboot Man of Steel, and despite a 57% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the Henry Cavill-headlined superhero epic is soaring at the box office. Man of Steel pulled in a mighty $21 million in the States on Thursday night (more than the midnight openings for The Avengers and The Dark Knight) and an estimated $45 million by close of play on Friday, »

His name has been linked with the film for a while now, but the final confirmation has come via Deadline: John C. Reilly is officially part of the Guardians Of The Galaxy universe, playing Nova Corps man Rhomann Dey.For those unaware of his background, in the comics Dey was the leader of the Corps on the planet Xander when the place was destroyed by an interstellar pirate named Zorr. Swearing vengeance for those who died (including Dey’s family), Dey chased Zorr across the galaxy, but ended up mortally wounded. Heading to Earth, Dey chose human Richard Rider to replace him, gifting him the powers needed to go after Zorr.Of course, how much of that backstory has made it into the Guardians script and what will change on its voyage to the screen remains to be seen, but Reilly is a great choice for a cast that has »
To date I have only seen the first film in the rebooted 'Star Trek' franchise and so I was interested to see what the novelisation would make of the new universe. Alan Dean Foster's back catalogue is extensive and whilst I have only a passing familiarity with his work (the ambitious and fascinating The Man Who Used The Universe) I cannot help but feel he might have undersold himself on this one.
You may have noticed my lack of a mention of the female contingent; this is because they are hardly mentioned. Uhura gets one good bit but she's mostly background support, despite actress Zoe Saldana's lobbying of the director for Uhura to "kick ass", along with all the other women and foreigners. (Even Tonto, sorry Spock is "only half human".) Uhura's joke of a relationship with Spock is a microcosm of the flimsy emotional stakes »
John C. Reilly has joined the increasingly eclectic and unique cast for James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. As rumored previously, he will play Rhomann Dey, the leader of the Nova Corps who anoints Richard Rider as Nova in the comics. That seems to hint that Nova, or at least the Corps, will be in the film, and that Marvel is clearly thinking massive in terms of scope for this movie. He may just be the Guardians answer to Agent Coulson, linking the Guardians to the rest of the cosmic Marvel universe.
It was rumored that he would be Ronan the Accuser, the big bad Kree villain, but that didn’t come to fruition. The film now stars John C. Reilly, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Ophelia Lovibond and Michael Rooker. The movie opens August 1st, 2014. »

Another quality actor joins the cast for Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy as John C Reilly's involvement is confirmed...
Here's something that was heavily rumoured a few weeks back, and finally seems to be locked in. It seems as though John C Reilly joining the cast of the soon-to-shoot Marvel project Guardians Of The Galaxy is a done deal. He has signed on to play Rhomann Dey, the head of Nova Corps.
The film is an ambitious project that seems like a tricky sell, but given how well Thor worked out when it faced similar levels of doubt ahead of its release, it's certainly worth keeping an open mind. James Gunn, who is helmed the project, is a very talented director and he has one hell of a cast at his disposal here to ensure that the film has plenty in its corner. It »
Guardians Of The Galaxy – that upcoming film that has inspired cries of joy from comic book fans and cries of ‘Who are the Guardians of the Galaxy?’ from everyone else – has added yet another big name to its already impressive cast list. John C. Reilly has signed on for Marvel’s Phase Two anchor film.
It was suggested that Reilly was signed on to play the part of Ronan the Accuser, the son of Thanos – that’s the big guy at the end of The Avengers – and a major force in the Marvel Universe. Now there’s confirmation that Reilly is actually Rhomann Dey, the leader of the Nova Corps, an intergalactic military/police force. That means nothing to you? Try this: he’s been described as “the Agent Coulson of the Guardians movies.” Ok, that’s a little better.

With a combination of high profile casting reports and consistent and frequent praise from Joss Whedon for its script and direction, Marvel Studios has kept Guardians of the Galaxy at the top of our radar as it prepares to begin shooting in less than two weeks.
In addition to the leads Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista and Zoe Saldana and recently added supporting roles for Benicio Del Toro and Glenn Close, Oscar-nominated John C. Reilly was reported to be in talks with Marvel for a key part that would potentially see him liaising between Earth’s Shield organization and the spacefaring Guardians. As it turns out, at least part of the initial speculation was true.

John C Reilly has been confirmed for Guardians of the Galaxy.
The Chicago actor has been linked with a role in the upcoming Marvel movie project in recent weeks, and his casting has now been confirmed, according to Deadline.
Reilly will portray Rhomann Dey in the film, who is similar to Agent Coulson from the Avengers movies, and will appear in several potential instalments.
The character is the human agent who deals directly between the Guardians and Earth, reporting to Shield about the group's movements.
At first, Deadline reported that Reilly had signed up to play Kree Empire's Ronan 'The Accuser' Dey, but this was later debunked.
A few weeks ago, rumors started to swirl about John C. Reilly joining the eclectic cast of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Deadline now reports that Reilly has been locked in to play Nova Corps leader Rhomann Dey in James Gunn's film. Reilly is no stranger to the Disney brand, having voiced the title character in the studio's hit film Wreck-It Ralph. His role of Dey will most likely amount to a brief supporting performance as much of the focus will be on Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and his crew which includes Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista) and Yondu (Michael Rooker). Guardians of the Galaxy is due in theaters August 1, 2014. Speaking of Marvel, Walt Disney Pictures announced release dates for two untitled Marvel Studios movies. These two films...

It had been rumored, but now Deadline confirms that John C. Reilly has been added to the cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which already includes Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Michael Rooker. Reilly will play Ronan the Accuser, a member of the Kree alien race and the leader of the Accuser Corps, which is a group of military governors and jurists. He’s super strong and fast, can sometimes turn invisible, and wields this really cool hammer thing called the “universal weapon.” Also, in some stories, he is the son of Thanos, the major Marvel villain who we saw at the very end of The Avengers and we have speculated might be whom Benicio Del Toro is playing. We’re aware this might sound like Greek, so may we suggest our very useful Guardians of the Galaxy explainer. (There’s a raccoon with a gun! »

It was earlier reported that he would be playing Ronan the Accuser, the Kree Empire's juror and military governor in space, but that information proved to be false.
Here is Marvel's rundown on John C. Reilly's Rhomann Dey.
"Rhomann Dey was the leader of the Nova Corps on the planet Xandar when the planet was destroyed by the space pirate Zorr. Seemingly everyone else was killed in the attack, including Dey's family. Dey swore vengeance on Zorr and chased him across the galaxy, battling him along the way. He became mortally wounded and paralyzed »

John C. Reilly's role has been revealed in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and he will be playing Ronan "The Accuser." It was originally rumored he would be playing a character named Rhomann Dey, who was described as the human agent who would serve as a go-between guy that keeps the Guardians in line and reporting to S.H.I.E.L.D. about their activities. But when Glenn Close was cast in a similar sounding role, questions were raised on who Reilly was actually going to play in the film. That question has now been answered.
The character was introduced in Fantastic Four, and he's a Kree villain whose powers include superhuman strength, endurance, speed and reflexes, shielded by an exoskeleton armor suit can make him invisible. He also wields the “universal weapon,” which »

[Updated] Casting on James Gunn’s anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy has been coming together very nicely in recent weeks and months, with the blockbuster set to launch a new set of heroes as the penultimate film in Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Falling directly before Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2 on Marvel’s slate, the film has been assembling an absolutely stellar cast. And now Deadline are confirming something we heard a couple weeks back, that John C. Reilly had been offered a part in the movie.
Reilly is now officially set to play Rhomann Dey, the leader of the Nova Corps in the 2014 tentpole.
We had initially heard that the actor would be playing a similarly titled character, Ronan the Accuser in the film. But now it’s been confirmed that he will in fact be playing the role of Rhomann Dey, confirming the part he »

Marvel Studios started building their fortune by hiring unknown or otherwise cheap actors like Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. (hey, he was cheap at the time) to headline their franchises. As they move on to Phase Two and build bigger vaults to hold their riches, though, they're apparently more willing than ever to shell out for some big names. And Guardians of the Galaxy-- an outer-space superhero movie starring a heroic raccoon-- might need the big names to help sell it to audiences who aren't quite ready for the transition. They've already got the likes of Benicio del Toro, Glenn Close and Zoe Saldana on board, and now the role has finally been revealed for one more big name, John C. Reilly. According to Deadline Reilly is playing Ronan "The Accuser" Dey, and I really can't do better to describe him than to lift this information »
Late last month, we learned that John C. Reilly had been offered a role in Marvel’s upcoming superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy. Well now it appears that Reilly will indeed be joining the Marvel universe, as Deadline reports that Reilly has officially signed on to play Ronan the Accuser in the James Gunn-helmed film. In the comics, Ronan is a member of the alien race the Kree and has been portrayed as both villainous and noble at different times. The character possesses superhuman strength and speed, and wields a long hammer-like weapon called the “Universal Weapon,” which can do considerable damage. Ronan has also been portrayed as the son of Thanos in the comics, so it’s possible that Reilly will also play a large role in future Marvel films should the studio decide to tie his character into the big baddie that was gleaned at the end of The Avengers. »

Update: I got it backward. John C. Reilly will play Rhomann Dey, leader of the Nova Corps, in Marvel Studios‘ Guardians Of The Galaxy, the James Gunn-directed franchise launch that stars Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, and Michael Rooker. He’s not playing Ronan the Accuser, the Kree Empire’s badass juror and military governor in space. According to Comicvine.com, here’s the deal on Rhomann Dey: Rhomann Dey was the leader of the Nova Corps on the planet Xandar when the planet was destroyed by the space pirate Zorr. Seemingly everyone else was killed in the attack, including Dey’s family. Dey swore vengeance on Zorr and chased him across the galaxy, battling him along the way. He became mortally wounded and paralyzed after an encounter causing him to seek a replacement who could stop Zorr and make him pay for his crimes. »
