Colin Firth Talks Magic In The Moonlight, Working with Woody Allen, Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, Genius, Comic-Con, and More

21 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening in limited release this weekend is Woody Allen’s new film Magic in the Moonlight.  The romantic comedy is set in the south of France in the 1920s and stars Colin Firth as an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle, as a young woman (Emma Stone) claims to be able to communicate with spirits.  As he spends more time with the girl, however, he starts to wonder if she may not be a fraud after all.  The film also stars Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, and Jacki Weaver.  For more on the film watch the trailer. A few days ago I landed an exclusive video interview with  Colin Firth.  He talked about making Magic in the Moonlight, working with Woody Allen, filming in France, shooting at the magic hour, working with Matthew Vaughn on Kingsman: The Secret Service and one of the »

Michael Caine Cast in Vin Diesel's The Last Witch Hunter

21 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Legendary actor Michael Cain will star alongside Vin Diesel in Lionsgate's supernatural action film The Last Witch Hunter. I never thought I'd ever see those two actors star in a movie together. It's just an interesting team up. 

The film is being directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies), and it also stars Game of Thrones actress Rose Leslie. According to THR, the story centers on "an immortal witch hunter (Diesel) who partners with his natural enemy, a female witch, to stop the covens of New York City from unleashing a plague on humanity."

This could be a fun movie, as I'm usually a fan of the films that both Diesel and Caine are involved with. Eisner is also a talented director. There's no information on who Caine will play in the story, but he will next be seen in Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service and Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. »

New Stills From Matthew Vaughn's Kingman: The Secret Service

16 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons’ (Watchmen)The Secret Service has so far been received very well by those who have seen footage at a number of events, and we now have some brand new stills from the movie. It’s hard to tell how much the story has changed in its transition from page to screen, but there do appear to be a few notable character alterations or additions. Regardless, the story – Colin Firth’s Bond-like agent teaches his rough around the edges nephew (Taron Egerton) to »

The making of Kingsman: The Secret Service | A spy movie game changer?

16 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew Vaughn has become something of a go-to filmmaker for quality comic book movies, having worked on the well-received X-Men: First Class and the adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's offbeat superhero adventure Kick-Ass.

Now he's back with Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on a concept he and Millar hatched together. Millar and Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons have already published the story as a comic book, and now Vaughn is working on the film version, which is less an adaptation than his own imagining of the original idea.

Vaughn has attracted a top cast, including Colin Firth and Mark Strong (who appeared together in a very different take on the spy genre, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) as well as Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine and newcomer Taron Egerton.

The film centres around council estate kid Eggsy (Egerton), a young tearaway bailed out of jail by his late father's »

From the Set of Kingsman: The Secret Service

16 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

There's a dead body on the floor next to me with a bullet hole in between its eyes. Even though Academy Award winner Colin Firth is beating up goons with an umbrella on the monitor in front of me, I can't help but look over at the cadaver. Though obviously a dummy, the prop will no doubt come into use fairly soon here on the set of Kingsman: The Secret Service as a hyper violent spy thriller is exactly what director Matthew Vaughn has in mind. On the other side of the sound stage, tucked inside Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden just outside London, Firth swings his umbrella around so as to catch the handle on the face of an attacker. He attempts it a number of times, sometimes landing it and sometimes failing, but Firth is clearly giving his all to a role that he has never really attempted in previous films. »

Power Rangers movie gains X-Men: First Class writers and Roberto Orci as executive producer

15 July 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The recently-announced Power Rangers film reboot has found its creative team, as The Hollywood Reporter reveals that X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz will pen the screenplay, while Star Trek and The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s Roberto Orci is also on board as executive producer.

Orci will produce the film without his long-standing creative partner Alex Kurtzman, under his Sneaky Shark banner. He’ll help develop the story with Miller and Stentz before handing them the screenwriting duties.

Haim Saban, who created the franchise, is also on board this reboot, which will “completely re-envision” the iconic team of martial arts and giant robot-wielding teenagers. This time around, they’re “infused with cool super powers,” and must harness them to save the world.

Now, while Miller and Stentz are credited with writing X-Men: First Class, it’s worth noting that their script was heavily re-written by as many as six writers, »

X-Men: First Class Writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz to Pen Power Rangers Reboot

15 July 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The news that the Power Rangers franchise is being rebooted with a new movie was met with a mixed response from fans, with many wondering whether there’s still room for the fairly dated characters in a world with the likes of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on the way.

However, since Mighty Morphin Power Rangers launched over two decades ago, the series has been in almost continuous production, with merchandise still selling well and a loyal fanbase in place. A movie like this however could potentially move them right back into being the huge brand they used to be.

It has been revealed this evening that Lionsgate and rights holder Saban Brands have drafted in a pair of writers who know all about rebooting a stale franchise; X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. Star Trek and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 »

Power Rangers Movie To Be Written By X-Men: First Class' Scribes

15 July 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In May, Saban Brands and Lionsgate officially announced their plans for a new Power Rangers feature film. The franchise began 20 years ago as a television series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. It was about the "adventures of a group of ordinary teens who “morph” into superheroes and save the world from evil." Today, The Hollywood Reporter reported, X-Men: First Class' screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz have been hired to pen the script for the live-action Power Rangers reboot. Keep in mind, many screenwriters contributed to X-Men: First Class, like Jamie Moss, Josh Schwartz, Zak Penn, Sheldon Turner, Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman. And it was cobbled together from other X-Men film projects like the solo Magneto film. As for Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, they have collaborated in the past on several projects, like Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Fringe. This new Power Rangers film will also get »

14 July 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In news sure to thrill all comic-book aficionados, Ain’t It Cool News is reporting that Valiant Entertainment is working to turn its popular comic-book series Archer & Armstrong into a movie.

Now that a script is set, Archer & Armstrong will head into production soon.

The buddy adventure comic-book series, most recently by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry, “follows the offbeat adventures of Archer—a sheltered young man raised by a religious sect and possessing the ability to mimic any fighting style he sees, and his partner Armstrong—an immortal drunkard with a penchant for chaos, mayhem, and inebriated fisticuffs.” It was originally created by Jim Shooter, Barry Windsor-Smith and Bob Layton back in the early ’90s, and has developed a small but »

Valiant Entertainment’s awesome Archer & Armstrong comic is headed to the big screen

12 July 2014 4:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Comic book movies are all the rage these days, but we forget that not all of them are about superheroes. We’re seeing a ton of other books and graphic novels getting adapted as well, and now have one more to add to the list. According to Ain’t It Cool News, Valiant Entertainment’s awesome Archer & Armstrong series is headed to the big screen.

The film is said to adhere close to the recent Fred Van Lente/Clayton Henry run in the books, which focuses on the offbeat adventures of Archer – a sheltered young man raised by a religious sect, who possesses the ability to mimic any fighting style he sees – and Armstrong – an immortal drunkard “with a penchant for chaos, mayhem, and inebriated fisticuffs.”

So… where do I buy my ticket?

The film could also be the lead in for a Valiant interconnected movie universe, using characters from books like Eternal Warrior, »

10 July 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the full Thursday schedule for Comic-Con 2014 was announced today, several studios such as Paramount and DreamWorks Animation did not reveal which movies they are presenting in San Diego. 20th Century Fox is trying a more direct approach, announcing that they will present Let's Be Cops, The Maze Runner, The Book of Life, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Hitman: Agent 47 during their Hall H panel on Friday, July 25, although the studio's highly-anticipated superhero reboot The Fantastic Four was not included.
