Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Will Set Sail In Summer 2017

23 July 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We all knew that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was bad, but none of us imagined that the film’s lack of quality would delay the bankable Disney franchise this much – especially because On Stranger Tides grossed $1.04 billion, the second-highest for the series and the 13th highest-grossing of all time worldwide. To take its grosses another way though, On Stranger Tides was also the lowest-grossing domestically, so perhaps Disney’s alarm bells were somewhat warranted. Regardless, it’s been announced today that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will finally be hitting screens on July 7th, 2017, a whopping six years after the last installment.

Originally, the movie was set to arrive next summer, but it was delayed in order to work on the script. Kon-Tiki breakouts Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are still set to direct the tentpole, giving us at least one reason to be excited for the fivequel. »

New 'Fury', 'Sin City 2', 'Zero Theorem' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Posters

23 July 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Several new posters have been released recently and I'll begin with the above banner for David Ayer's Fury (click for full size), which clearly has the makings of three separate posters so I separated them and offer larger looks directly below. Featured front and center is obviously Brad Pitt as Wardaddy, leader of the World War II tank crew and he's joined here by Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Josh Bernthal and Shia Labeouf. Fury is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. The film hits theaters on November 14, check out the individual posters below. »

Fantasia 2014: ‘The Zero Theorem’ undermines its satire with muddy ideology and philosophy

22 July 2014 11:13 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Zero Theorem

Written by Pat Rushin

Directed by Terry Gilliam

UK/Romania/USA/France, 2013

Stop me if you’ve heard this one already: a low-level cog in a comically large bureaucratic environment in a grotesque-looking “future” dystopia struggles in the face of obsolescence and oblivion. The character in question is fundamentally good, but incredibly weedy, their resolve and spirit having been ground to stumps by the world around them. People come in and out of the protagonist’s surroundings either to goad them into just rolling with the Orwellian punches, or to pull them out of a tight spot in a bizarre or humorous way. The ‘hero’ also creates elaborate fantasies and ideas to inhabit as a coping mechanism. If this sounds familiar, that’s because these broad plot points describe Terry Gilliam’s towering 1985 bad-vibes masterpiece Brazil. It also more or less describes his latest, The Zero Theorem, »

Review: The Zero Theorem (Fantasia Film Festival)

21 July 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Plot: Qohen Leth (Christoph Waltz) – a chronically reclusive number cruncher – is assigned by his mysterious boss “Management” to work on “The Zero Theorem” an unprovable mathematical theory that has the unfortunate side effect of turning anyone who works on it insane. Review: Hit or miss, Terry Gilliam's movies are always interesting. While no one would ever mistake The Zero Theorem for one of his better films, »

'The Zero Theorem' Poster: Inside Christoph Waltz's Brain

21 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At this point, we should all be expecting nothing but insanity from zany director Terry Gilliam. The out-there filmmaker is the brains behind the drug-filled lunacy of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and most recently he presented the fairy-tale-like "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus."

Now Gilliam is back in the director's chair for "The Zero Theorem," which stars Christoph Waltz, Melanie Thierry, Matt Damon, and Tilda Swinton.

A computer hacker (Waltz) whose goal is to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management (Damon); their strategy is to send a teenager and lusty love interest (Thierry) to distract him.

"The Zero Theorem" is set to hit theatres in two Canadian cities for "By Popular Demand" openings:

August 1, 2014: Toronto, The Royal

August 8, 2014: Calgary, Globe Twin

Blu-ray Review – The Zero Theorem (2013)

21 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Zero Theorem, 2013.

Directed by Terry Gilliam.

Starring Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw and Tilda Swinton.

Synopsis:

A computer hacker whose goal is to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; namely, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.

Terry Gilliam’s career as director has produced a filmography of varied result, from the highs of a modern classic like Brazil to total misfires in the shape of The Brothers Grimm and Tideland, but one thing has always been guaranteed; he has a unique sense for storytelling and an eye for visuals unlike anyone else. As such, The Zero Theorem is everything we could want from a Terry Gilliam film and much more; it’s one the year’s best films.

The story is a familiar one but has that likable Gilliam lead (think Jonathan Pryce, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 21st 2014

21 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This week annoyed by a loudmouth blogger of some repute, who declared anime for paedophiles and insulted more or less the whole of Japanese culture, I decided to watch Netflix original anime Knights of Sidonia. His comments have widely been circulated and condemned by many people and he’s just made himself look a fool, and all this just because Gus Van Sant might be directing a Death Note movie. I recognise that anime is not for everyone but still, by dismissing all of it you are missing out on an awful lot of classic work and influential stuff.

Knights of Sidonia has been billed as a Netflix original but it’s quite hard to imagine that they would have been involved in the production of something like this, it’s pretty far out there even for anime and its more likely that Netflix have done what they did with »

21 July 2014 4:51 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of The Zero Theorem on 21st July, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray

From visionary director Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), The Zero Theorem stars two-time Academy Award®winner* Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds) as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the lack thereof – once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Joby (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom, it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that »

Quentin Tarantino Heads to Comic-Con 2014 for 'Django Unchained' Sequel Comic

18 July 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Any fan of Quentin Tarantino knows that he hasn't made a sequel to any of his movies yet, and that doesn't appear to change in the near future. However, he is continuing the story from 2012's Django Unchained in comic book form, with a sequel/mashup from Dynamite Entertainment that will be presented at Comic-Con 2014. Take a look at the panel details below, which will take place on Sunday, July 27

Dynamite 10th Anniversary Panel Featuring Quentin Tarantino as He Comes to Dynamite! The Sequel to Django Unchained-Django Meets Zorro

Join Dynamite publisher Nick Barrucci, Dynamite senior editor Joseph Rybandt and moderator Alan Kistler as they present a special 10th Anniversary Celebration featuring the upcoming Django/Zorro crossover creative team of Reginald Hudlin (editor, Django/Zorro), Matt Wagner (writer, Django/Zorro) and of course the very special guest Quentin Tarantino as they help to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Dynamite Comics! »

Oscar Updates: Acting Pairs and Young Bucks

18 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The chart updates continue. I've been thinking a lot about Foxcatcher and Love is Strange and whether or not Sony Pictures Classics will have the guts to campaign all four of those male leads as leads. Essentially they'd be asking for 80% of the category which would be extremely ballsy (no pun intended with four sets of them) but also honest. For these July updates I'm fantasizing that they will.

Eddie Redmayne, David Oyelowo, and Channing Tatum are just three of the fresh crop of leading men who might be competing for Oscar gold for real life roles

But the funny thing is: Best Actor is enormously crowded without any of that acclaimed quartet. Playing a real life character won't even get you very far because most lead actors are doing just that, thereby dulling its time-tested competitive advantage. I count at least 10 possibly major contenders this year in biographical roles: Cumberbatch, »

First official synopsis for David Yates’ Tarzan reboot

17 July 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates is leaving the castles and magical schools of the wizarding world behind, and heading into the jungle for a reboot of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan. Production on the long-gestating project is finally underway, and to celebrate Warner Brothers have released its first official synopsis:

It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom. But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.

There have been over 200 film incarnations of the iconic apeman, »

'Tarzan' Synopsis Released as Shooting Begins

16 July 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, we reported that Warner Bros. is expanding their Leavesden Studios in the U.K. as Tarzan was about to start production, although that announcement did not reveal any plot details for this live-action adventure. Warner Bros. has confirmed that principal photography is under way in a press release, which includes the first official plot synopsis. Take a look at the story details below, then read on for more information.

"It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsg&#229rd) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) at his side.

Warners' "Tarzan" More Sequel Than Origin Tale

16 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures have released a new official synopsis for David Yates' upcoming "Tarzan" film featuring "True Blood" hunk Alexander Skarsgard as the king of the jungle himself.

Interestingly though, the synopsis confirms they're opting for a different approach to previous adaptations of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel - this one serving as kind of a sequel rather than an origin story:

"It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgard) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) at his side.

'Tarzan' Official Synopsis Revealed, 'Avengers 2' Footage Described and 'Child 44' and 'Vatican Tapes' Dates

15 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Summit announced last night Child 44, the new film from Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke and Vincent Cassel, will hit theaters on April 17, 2015. Hope you weren't counting on it being a major Oscar contender. Mark Neveldine (Crank) has revealed his new film, The Vatican Tapes will hit theaters on February 27, 2015. Starring Michael Pena, Djimon Hounsou, Dougray Scott, Kathleen Robertson and Olivia Dudley the horror film follows the haunting tale of 27-year-old Angela Holmes, played by Dudley, an ordinary girl who begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close to her, causing serious injury and death. The local priest, Father Lozano (Pena), examines Holmes and believes she is possessed, but when Vicar Imani (Hounsou) and Cardinal Bruun (Andersson) are called from the Vatican to exorcise the demon, it proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than they imagined. »

Fantasia Film Festival 2014: Derek’s Most Anticipated Movies

15 July 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This will be my third year attending the venerable Fantasia International Film Festival here in Montreal, and this year’s slate does not disappoint. I was asked to pick the five movies I was the most excited to see. This proved to be a difficult task, seeing as how my original list had upwards of thirty titles. But here are the five that have got me the most intrigued.

The Zero Theorem

Directed by Terry Gilliam

USA/UK/Romania/France, 2013

Even though this movie has been finished for a while and already released in certain territories around the world, there’s a sense that a new Terry Gilliam movie is some form of minor miracle. Stories of Gilliam’s distended budgets, lost projects, and squabbles with producers lend the director a kind of bizarre mystique. But by all accounts, this was the easiest time Gilliam had making a movie in a while. »

Filming Begins on David Yates’ Tarzan 3D; First Official Synopsis Released

14 July 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

Warner Bros. announced today that filming has begun on Tarzan 3D, and the first official synopsis of the movie reveals huge new details about the plot and setting of the latest live-action take on the legendary character (who will be played here by Alexander Skarsgård) created by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Many people assumed that this version of Tarzan would be a reboot, introducing the iconic hero to a whole new generation of viewers. However, as you can see from the synopsis below, the movie will instead pick up with Tarzan at a later stage in his life; an area which hasn’t been explored that frequently.

It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to »

David Yates' Tarzan Movie Begins Principal Photography

14 July 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

David Yates, who helmed the last few Harry Potter films (and dominated with them), has officially begun production on his next flick, a retelling of Tarzan for Warner Bros.  The studios announced today that cameras were rolling along with some new details on the story this film will have!  

While my interest in another Tarzan film is almost non-existent, I am keenly interested in seeing what David Yates does next.  We haven't seen him do much since Harry Potter ended, and I'm hoping Tarzan will be another amazing film from him.  From the press release: 

Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ new Tarzan 3D action adventure, starring Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s “True Blood”) as the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
