9 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Paul Walker died in a tragic car accident in 2013, and ever since, his Fast and Furious costars have continued to speak out about how much he meant to them. Over the years, Vin Diesel, who was incredibly close with Paul, has been very candid about how his friend's death affected him and opened up about the loss on the anniversary of Paul's car accident on Thursday at Brazil Comic-Con. "We've felt the loss," he said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the event. "The last three years have been some of the hardest of my life because of losing my brother like that." The 49-year-old actor is in the midst of filming Fast 8, but it's his new movie, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, that he credits with distracting him from getting upset. "Making this movie came after a very difficult time making Furious 7, and so never in »

‘Arrival’ Could Never Have Been Made By A Studio: Here’s Why — Consider This

9 November 2016 10:57 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Look under the hood and many of the Hollywood studios’ best movies are independently financed, like Paramount Pictures’ “Arrival.” The studio won the brainy sci-fi thriller in a Cannes 2014 bidding war, plunking down a record $20 million for North America and other territories — but only after it was already financed and packaged with Oscar-nominated Denis Villeneuve, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner.

Arrival” was initially developed at Twentieth Century Fox, where director-producer Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment has sustained a rich first-look production deal for 10 years that stretches back to the first “Night at the Museum.” Levy, who studied English and Theater at Yale, has continued to direct family movies like “Cheaper By the Dozen” and DreamWorks’ “Real Steel;” meanwhile, 21 Laps also produced “Date Night,” the $2-million Sundance A24 hit “The Spectacular Now” (developed from the bestseller), and discovery Matt and Ross Duffer’s breakout sci-fi Netflix series “Stranger Things.”

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This entry will look at what into relaunching the Batman and Superman franchises, and more. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 1997. Batman And Robin came out and was a huge black eye for Warner Bros., effectively turning what was a once promising franchise into a punchline. It was the fourth installment of that series, and it killed Batman almost as definitively as the fourth Superman film had grounded the Man of Steel exactly 10 years earlier. 

But before we can look at how Warner Bros. planned to rebound its DC properties post-1997, we have to »

Ultra HD 4K Blu-rays, and pricing people out of a format

31 October 2016 1:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Nov 3, 2016

It should be a crucial Christmas for the Ultra HD Blu-ray format. But not with £30 being asked for Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates...

At a time when sales of physical discs are dwindling, and when studios can’t enjoy the kind of revenues that DVDs were throwing into their coffers in the early to mid-2000s, the release of a new physical disc format should in theory be something of a shot in the arm. Appreciating that it takes time for a new format to warm up, you only have to look at the £5 premium that’s generally slapped on a Blu-ray disc to see that, when done properly, everybody can win. Consumers get a choice between the resolution quality of their movies, whilst studios can attract a price premium, particularly out of those who really care about their home cinema.

And it’s people who »

The Sweariest Films In Movie History

7 October 2016 4:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s not often that you get a ‘Bad cop’, ‘worse cop’ type affair when it comes to classic cop films. That, however, is just what you get with War on Everyone, directed by John Michael McDonagh and starring Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Pena. They play two corrupt cops in New Mexico and they don’t give a damn about who they blackmail or frame; until they come across someone even more despicable than they are. Let’s just say, these two detectives couldn’t possibly kiss their mothers with the colourful language they use. In that vein, we’ve decided to take a look at some of the films whose language has raised some questionable eye brows from society. War on Everyone is out in UK cinemas on 7th October.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s five best movie roles to date

6 October 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Central Intelligence, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, is a hilarious, action packed comedy that proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes and it’s due to land on both Blu-ray and DVD come the 31st October 2016.  To celebrate this upcoming release we’ve listed five of the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s best movie roles to date below…

Central Intelligence (2016) 

Central Intelligence is easily one of the most likeable comedies of 2016 – something more than verified by its global box office returns. The film takes the traditional buddy comedy and spins the usual tropes so that stand-up sensation Kevin Hart is ostensibly the straight man to Johnson’s leftfield CIA oddball. The film also explores the weight of expectation placed on High School successes as opposed to the cold, hard reality of life after education. Johnson is Bob Stone, formerly and quite literally the butt of every joke »

Level Up Review

20 September 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gamer culture is a funny thing. Virtual soldiers of fortune sit comfortably on their plushy, safely-indoor couches, while screaming obscenities and egotistical insults into a headset microphone. It takes a movie like Level Up to put some of these arm-chair warriors in their respective places, useful with only a Cheeto-dusted controller in their hands. Yet, as far as “fantasy becomes reality” movies are concerned, Adam Randall’s kidnapping take is a bit more boiled-down than other more frantic, high-stakes efforts. Think Call Of Duty meets Grand Theft Auto, except Randall’s dangerous trajectory lacks any gameplay meat on its proverbial bones. Bad might turn to worse, but never in an adrenaline-pumping, action-ready kind of way. Not a glitchy mess, but more like a beta test?

Josh Bowman stars as the slacker-happy Matt, who spends most of his days playing video games and getting piss drunk. His girlfriend Anna (Leila Mimmack »
