Go behind the scenes of the autumn's most gripping disaster movie Everest in this featurette

21 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Everest brings you to the mountains of Nepal for an incredible adventure.

The upcoming disaster epic tells the true story of 1996's Mount Everest disaster, when eight climbers became trapped in a brutal blizzard.

Universal Pictures' latest profile of Everest follows the actors and filmmakers on set in the snow-covered mountains of Nepal.

"It's a big-scale movie and it's not easy to shoot," star Jason Clarke says. "You've got to go to Nepal. That means you've got to shoot in the mountains. You need real weather and snow."

"[Director Baltasar Kormákur] wanted us to experience the elements," Jake Gyllenhaal adds. "He pushed us in that way."

Everest also features Josh Brolin, Robin Wright, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Sam Worthington in its story of the rescue attempts to save eight trapped climbers.

The movie will open in Us and UK cinemas on September 18. »

Have Jurassic Dinosaurs Truly Kicked Marvel Superheroes Butt at Worldwide Box Office?

25 July 2015 9:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

10 Reasons Tom Hardy Must Be The Next James Bond

10 July 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

“The name’s Bond… James Bond” – an iconic line that has graced the lips of a select few screen legends from the debonair highs of Sean Connery and David Niven to the rough and ready depths of Timothy Dalton and Daniel Craig with a dollop of cinema’s finest cheese inbetween ala George Lazenby, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan. But with Daniel Craig’s contract up, everyone is wondering which actor will be next.

There’s no shortage of speculation but if you’re a betting (wo)man you’ll find yourself drawn to some of British film’s finest men of the moment.

In the frame for filling 007’s shoes (and the bookies’ betting cards) include: Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan, The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill, The Theory of Everything’s Eddie Redmayne, Avatar’s Sam Worthington, »

Editorial: Sarah Connor is the Soul of the Terminator Franchise

3 July 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Originally appeared in the September 2014 issue of Deadly Magazine] There is a scene 75 minutes into 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day,  in which James Cameron pinpoints the humanity amidst all the time travel, liquid metal and state-of-the-art special effects. Young John Connor (Edward Furlong) is bonding with the T-800 machine assigned to protect him (Arnold Schwarzenegger), by teaching him how to high five. The moment is designed to underscore the father/son dynamic between John and the Terminator, as well as provide a visual symbol of the hope for mankind – that we are able to co-exist alongside technology. And, if we’re reading even more deeply, that we can still master it.

A great deal of Terminator 2’s running time is devoted to the connection between John and Schwarzenegger’s T-800. However, it’s telling that the most poignant shot – the one that says the most about their relationship – is from the perspective of John’s mother, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton »

Terminator Salvation Revisited: “You Cannot Save John Connor”

29 June 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines showed that a Terminator universe without James Cameron was its own kind of wasteland. Schwarzenegger wasn’t enough, and retreading the same premise as T2—T-800 comes back in time to protect John Connor from a more advanced Terminator—made the third installment mostly pointless. The only part of that movie that significantly moved anything forward was the ending, and we already knew where that ending would take us. Terminator Salvation wasn’t so much a salvation for the franchise, but a salvage operation. Director McG went for the reality that the first three movies had tried to avoid, and while Salvation removes all hope from the previous installments, it also theoretically could have carved its own path. It’s set in the future; it doesn’t have Arnold Schwarzenegger (the crummy body double and digital masking doesn’t count); and it introduces us »

Re-Viewed: Arnold Schwarzenegger's sci-fi classic The Terminator

27 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sci-fi more than any other genre, dates badly. What makes The Terminator an endlessly re-watchable classic is that, conversely, it feels more relevant with each passing year and with every new-fangled gadget that comes along promising to do all of your thinking for you. It's not just a slick, exciting action-thriller, it's also a shrewd cautionary tale for our tech-obsessed times and three decades on, the story continues to unspool with a fourth sequel Terminator Genisys opening in July.

Skynet, a self-governing computer network, is bent on destroying humankind in 2029, but director James Cameron co-penned the script with his future-wife Gale Anne Hurd in the early '80s, well before the rise of the internet. That was the first genius stroke, and then there was the casting of one Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He was a bodybuilder who had just made a significant dent at the box office in 1982's Conan the Barbarian »
