Fox Dates Two Untitled Marvel Films; Kingsman: The Golden Circle Moves To Fall 2017

23 November 2016 4:56 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Get ready to put your speculating caps on because according to Exhibitor Relations, 20th Century Fox has dated two untitled Marvel films for November 2, 2018 and February 14, 2019. There's no word on what these films might be, but considering where the release dates fall on the calendar, it's likely they have been reserved for the Gambit spin-off and/or Deadpool 3. Other possibilities include an X-Men: Apocalypse sequel, the Josh Boone-directed New Mutants film - which is expected to begin production at some point next year - and/or the long-awaited X-Force film. With an additional date in 2018, Fox now has three Marvel films slated for that year, having already reserved March 2, 2018 (which a recent report claims has been reserved for the New Mutants film) and June 29, 2018 - which unless a core X-Men film is fast-tracked, is now being heavily rumored for Deadpool 2. On a related note, the studio has pushed back »

Sweet/Vicious Season 1 Review

14 November 2016 2:11 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

More often than not, MTV’s sleek high-quality production values and tragically attractive talent pool works overtime in negating the “edgy” content its scripted department has run toward since Teen Wolf became a hit. That show, lest anyone forget, began much the same way: polished to a mirror shine, but without much beating beneath its six-pack-abs-strewn DVD cover art. It’s taken years for it to become something special and intricately layered, finally embracing – and elevating – the MTV-ness of it all.

Some shows on the network start out with a more assured, self-aware grasp (The Shannara Chronicles), and some simply feel like slowly unfurling wastes (Scream). MTV’s newest crack at shocking the millennial set enough to tweet out a hashtag is Sweet/Vicious, and I’m very happy to report that it falls far closer to the former group than the latter. »

De Niro, Julianne Moore to star in Amazon based mafia series

8 November 2016 1:07 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Amazon mafia series sets Robert De Niro opposite Julianne Moore, under the direction of David O’Russell.

More on the forthcoming Amazon mafia series below.

Robert De Niro is set to headline an Amazon mafia series to be helmed by his Silver Linings Playbook and Joy director David O’Russell. Julianne Moore will also star in the as yet untitled series which will be set over two seasons.

Each season of the series will consist of eight episodes with O’Russell writing and directing every single one of them. The rumour over at Deadline is that the two seasons will cost a massive $160 million.

Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert, Megan Ellison, Harvey Weinstein and David Glasser will executive produce.

This is obviously a huge deal, particularly of the rumoured subject matter and the current high standing of the supremely talented O’Russell.

We don’t know too much more at this stage, »

Jane Goldman says ‘Kingsman 2’ is much crazier than the first movie

5 October 2016 10:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I don’t know about anyone else, but I loved the superb action-comedy that was Kingsman: The Secret Service when it landed back in 2014. The fact that a sequel was soon put into motion due to the first’s huge success was slightly worrying as we were always afraid that the filmmakers couldn’t top the genius of the original.

What Fox have done though is bring back everyone that was involved in the first movie – screenwriter Jane Goldman, director Matthew Vaughn and stars Taron Egerton and even Colin Firth (!) Well, on the trailer for her new film Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children, Goldman has teased us with what we can expect with ‘Kingsman 2’, which is formally known as Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Here’s what she had to say to Collider.

“It’s more crazy than the first one, if such thing is possible, it’s pretty crazy… »

Kingsman 2 gets a release date delay

4 October 2016 10:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Nov 24, 2016

Kingsman: The Golden Circle moves back to October 2017...

A delay has been announced to Matthew Vaughn's upcoming sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle. As part of a raft of release date announcements, 20th Century Fox announced that it's moving the release of Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant from October to May 2017. And that it's sort-of swapping places with Kingsman: The Golden Circle in the studio's release schedule.

See related  Yonderland: saluting a brilliant fantasy comedy Yonderland series 3 episode 6 review: Swapsies Yonderland series 3 episode 5 review: The Negatus Redemption Yonderland series 3 episode 4 review: Boo

The new Kingsman film has thus been put back by some four months to a new opening of October 6th 2017. This is just for the American release thus far, but Fox is certain to reflect the date change in its UK plans as well. Ho hum.

Behind Henry Jackman’s Most Notable Scores, From ‘Captain America’ to ‘Captain Phillips’

29 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

X-Men: First Class” (2011)

The second of Jackman’s three films with director Matthew Vaughn (the others were “Kick-Ass” and “Kingsman: The Secret Service.”), the score for “X-Men: First Class” “was kind of a breakout score for me,” Jackman recalls. “I started writing something pompous and classical, and Matthew said, ‘No, we’ve got to keep it cool.’ They were all young and needed something emergent and not overly mature. There are some pretty ballsy guitars and some breakbeats in there.”

This Is the End” (2013) and “The Interview” (2014)

Jackman’s “dead straight classical” approach, as he puts it, to Kim Jong-un’s theme in “The Interview,” and his over-the-top choral requiem in “The End,” helped to hype the humor in both Seth Rogen-Evan Goldberg films. Rogen tells Variety: “Henry has been a huge part of our directing process. He has the skill of an amazing classical composer and the »

Kingsman Creator Wants John Cena as This Superhero

26 September 2016 1:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While he's best known for his work in the wrestling ring as a WWE Superstar, John Cena has started to come into his own as an actor, starring in three comedies last year, Trainwreck, Sisters and Daddy's Home. Mark Millar, whose comic book creations include Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service, took to Twitter to reveal that he recently watched Trainwreck, and was so impressed with John Cena's work he just "requested him" for his upcoming adaptation Superior, which has been in the works for quite some time. It seems this superhero request may actually pay off as well.

Mark Millar sent out his first message praising John Cena on Twitter this past Saturday. This resulted in several fans praising this potential casting in return, since the wrestler/actor bears a resemblance to the comic book superhero. Here's what Mark Millar had to say on Twitter this past Saturday. »

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Review: A Wildly Imaginative Fable

26 September 2016 8:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a wildly imaginative, but uneven film. Some parts are fantastically dark, creepy, and intriguing. Then it loses steam and flatlines like a bad Ekg test. I was completely unaware of the novel by Ransom Riggs, but may actually give it a read after watching this movie. The plot is extraordinary, a high concept story. It's tailor made for Burton's directing style. The film succeeds more often than not, but fails to achieve its true potential.

Avoid plot spoilers. Half the fun is just figuring out what the heck is going on in the story. I'll summarize briefly. Asa Butterfield stars as Jake Portman, a gangly teenager in suburban Florida. He spent his childhood regaled with tall tales by a vivacious grandfather (Terence Stamp). His grandfather's mysterious death prompts Jake to question the veracity of the stories. His quest will lead »

On my radar: Jane Goldman’s cultural highlights

25 September 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The screenwriter on a great festival, shock horror Train to Busan, hacking TV drama Mr Robot and immersive theatre to die for

Born in London in 1970, screenwriter, producer and author Goldman began her writing career aged 16 when she left school and became a journalist, initially working as a showbiz reporter for the Daily Star. That same year she met Jonathan Ross in a nightclub, married him in Las Vegas aged 18 and went on to have three children with him. While the children were young, Goldman published several nonfiction guides for teenagers and, in 2000, her first novel, Dreamworld, before making the switch to films as co-writer on 2007’s Stardust. The movie was the first of several successful screenwriting collaborations with Matthew Vaughn, namely Kick-Ass (2010), X-Men: First Class (2011) and Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015). Her latest project is an adaptation for director Tim Burton of Ransom Riggs’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, »

Kingsman 2: Taron Egerton Says They're Done Filming And That It Will "Blow Everyone Away"

14 September 2016 10:11 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service was an all-around big surprise. It was a surprise in that it made me buy Colin Firth as a badass, it was a surprise in how great the relatively unknown Taron Egerton was, it was a surprise in how amazing of a villain Samuel L. Jackson was, and on the whole, it was a surprise just how darn good the film was. Yes, it had the genius Matthew Vaughn behind it, but the trailers did nothing to convince me it would be anything special.

Oh, how wrong I was.

Now, the film’s sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is up there as one of my most anticipated films of next year. With Vaughn returning to the project as director, the addition of the likes of Halle Berry Julianne Moore, and Channing Tatum, as well as the return of Colin Firth to the film, it’s bound »

20th Century Fox To Develop A Stan Lee Film

14 September 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has acquired the life rights of Stan Lee, the creator of Marvel's most notable heroes such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man, and Doctor Strange. Fox intends to make an action-adventure film out of Stan Lee's life in the 1970's.

Pow! Entertainment's Gil Champion and Stan Lee himself will executive produce the film. Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, who produced films such as Twilight, The Maze Runner, and next year's Power Rangers reboot, are set to produce the Stan Lee movie with a tone similar to Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service or, Roger Moore’s 007.

The story of Lee has been well-documented. Lee, born Stanley Lieber, grew up poor in the Bronx and entered the comic book publishing world at the age of 17 in 1939, working for his uncle at Timely Comics. In the 1970s, »

Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle Wraps Production

After the success of Kingsman: The Secret Service, no one was surprised that 20th Century Fox was moving forward with Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle. Taron Egerton returns to star as Eggsy, with a number of high-profile stars coming aboard, including Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Elton John and Julianne Moore, just to name a few.

While we don't know exactly when filming wrapped, Taron Egerton spoke with Entertainment Tonight at the Toronto Film Festival, where he attended the world premiere screening of his upcoming animated movie Sing.

The Lrm Interview: Actor Colin Firth on Returning for Bridget Jones’s Baby

8 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s been over 12 years since Helen Fielding’s beloved character Bridget Jones had been seen on the silver screen in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. In the time since then, it seemed like we’d never see Renee Zellwegger back in her most popular role ever again. Somehow, things finally came together for Bridget Jones’s Baby, which (as one can assume from the title) has Zellwegger’s Jones pregnant with two possible fathers.

One of the options is Patrick Swayze as a billionaire that Bridget has an encounter with at a music festival, but fans of the original movie will be more excited by Bridget’s second option, which is Colin Firth’s Mark Darcy, the emotion-free prosecutor who when last we saw him, had proposed to Bridget.  In the time between movies, things had changed, and we learn that Darcy ended up marrying someone else as »

Colin Firth talks Kingsman: The Golden Circle

2 September 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Given the apparent demise of his character Harry Hart in the first movie, it was somewhat surprising that Colin Firth was announced as returning for next year’s follow up to Kingsman: The Secret Service. At the moment, it’s unclear how he’ll be returning, and Firth wasn’t giving anything away when asked about Kingsman: The Golden Circle during an interview with CinemaBlend.

“I’m going to do everything I can to creatively deflect your question,” said Firth, who was promoting the release of his new film Bridget Jones’s Baby. “It’s no secret that I have some involvement with it, but I think it would be a pity to get too specific about what that is. I can tell you, yes, I’ve been on the set, and there is an extraordinary atmosphere where I think nothing is going to be obvious to anybody. I think »

Colin Firth Promises a Big Harry Hart Surprise in Kingsman 2

1 September 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most fans were quite shocked when, towards the end of last year's surprise hit Kingsman: The Secret Service, Colin Firth's character Harry Hart was killed off by the villainous Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson). Once talk of a sequel started to surface, director Mark Millar teased that he may find a way for Colin Firth to return, and it was confirmed that he will come back through a cryptic poster, along with new photos from the set. Today we have new details from Colin Firth himself, who offered some very subtle hints about his return.

Collider caught up with the actor, who was promoting his new romantic comedy Bridget Jones' Baby, in theaters September 16. Last month, Colin Firth was seen in his Harry Hart costume in a photo from the set from Pedro Pascal, but details about Harry's return have been kept close to the vest. The actor wouldn't »

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Is An “Outrageous, Compelling And Unconventional” Sequel, According To Colin Firth

1 September 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In recent times, the term ‘sequel’ is so often tossed around in a derogatory way, used to lambast a derivative feature film that neither hits the high notes of its predecessor nor brings anything new to the table. There are expectations to this so-called rule, of course, and Aliens, Terminator 2, The Godfather 2, Empire Strikes Back and Toy Story 2 all spring to mind as sequels that are just as good, if not better than their cinematic forebear.

One 2017 picture hoping to emulate such a tradition is Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Matthew Vaughn’s star-studded follow-up that – surprise! – welcomes back Colin Firth in the role of Galahad. Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated, it seems.

When doing the press rounds for another sequel – Bridget Jones’ Baby, to be specific – The Golden Circle was never too far away from conversation. Chatting to Collider, Firth teased the ways in which Vaughn’s »
