'Terminator Genisys': Will Matt Smith's Role Upset Fans?

24 March 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, Empire Magazine released new photos for Terminator Genisys, along with the magazine cover featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emilia Clarke. Today, Empire has released four more photos, along with new plot details from Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. If that's not enough, we also have another report which reportedly reveals the mysterious character that Matt Smith is playing. There will be Spoilers towards the end of this story, regarding Matt Smith's character, so read on at your own risk.

Terminator Genisys follows John Connor (Jason Clarke) as he sends his trusted soldier Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984, to protect his mother Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). When Kyle goes back in time, it is not what he expected, with Sarah being protected by an "aging" T-800 Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) as they all go on a new mission to "reset" the future. Here's what Arnold Schwarzenegger had to say about »

‘Insurgent’ Star Jai Courtney Talks ‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘Terminator: Genisys’

19 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Australian “Spartacus” star has been on a roll lately with parts in “Divergent” and “Unbroken.” He’ll next be seen in a pair of high-profile sequels, “Insurgent” and “Terminator: Genisys” and is about to start work as Captain Boomerang in David Ayer’s hotly anticipated “Suicide Squad.”

Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman, the list goes on; what are they doing in Australia to breed these great actors?

I think it’s a combination of work ethic and generally being zero bulls— people. If you possess some talent and are enjoyable enough to work with, the natural progression is it leads to more stuff. Or perhaps it’s the Vegemite we’re raised on.

What can “Divergent” fans expect from “Insurgent”?

I actually just came from a screening of it. It’s big! It’s rather impressive in scale and it’s a lot of fun. They really stepped it up. »

Jai Courtney: 'Terminator: Genisys' Will Have 'Gentle Nods' to James Cameron's Films

19 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jai Courtney is the new Kyle Reese, opposite Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger (he always said he'd be back!) as The Terminator in "Terminator: Genisys." The movie opens July 1, and Jai just talked to Variety about how he booked the role and how different "Genisys" is from the "Terminator" story of the 1984 original.

"It's not a reboot or a sequel or a prequel," Jai told Variety. "It stands alone. We're introduced to a world that we've seen before. However, when Reese is sent back to save Sarah Connor, something has happened in the process sand everything has changed. All the information he has for the mission and the task at hand is different. Therefore, things have been reset and that's where we move forward from. That's about all I can say."

It's like the alternate 1985 of "Back to the Future II" (but hopefully without rich Biff). Jai »

Did Lara Bingle Secretly Wed Sam Worthington? Pregnant Model Fuels Marriage Speculation on Latest Cover

9 March 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

So sneaky, these two!  Lara Bingle covers the latest issue of Gritty Pretty magazine, looking absolutely gorgeous as she channels her seductive side. However, it's not the pics that have created a stir, it's the models name which is inked on the cover and reads "Lara Bingle Worthington."  Worthington, of course, being the surname of Bingle's beau Sam Worthington, whom she very may well have secretly married.  The 27-year-old Aussie beauty and the Avatar actor are currently expecting their first child together, and while reps have stayed mum on the pregnancy news, the blond stunner's baby bump made its debut less than two months ago when Ok! »

Kidnapping Mr. Heineken and Two Men in Town Feature Recognizable Faces

8 March 2015 11:44 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There are two new thrillers out this weekend in limited release that are well worth your time, and I reviewed them here. Two more indie thrillers hit both theaters and VOD yesterday, but they’re enough of a mixed bag for me to suggest you wait for their inevitable DVD or Netflix release instead. Both are produced and acted well enough, but they share a single trait that keeps them from the recommended list. For everything they do, it’s the things they don’t do that ultimately underwhelms. Cor van Hout (Jim Sturgess) is a man between jobs. It’s the early ’80s, and the economy in Amsterdam is in the canal leaving him far more motivated towards illicit employment. His friends are in the same boat — Jan (Ryan Kwanten) is good with his hands, Frans (Mark van Eeuwen) is a wild man and Willem (Sam Worthington) is an aggressive go-getter with an existing grudge against »

12 landmark performance capture turns: From Ahmed Best to Andy Serkis

7 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.

Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.

Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.

Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.

Walden to Co-Finance Steven Spielberg’s ‘BFG’ With DreamWorks

5 March 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walden Media will co-finance and co-produce DreamWorks Studios’ “The BFG” with Steven Spielberg starting the shoot later this month.

Mark Rylance was cast in October as the titular benevolent giant in “The BFG,” an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s novel. Newcomer Ruby Barnhill has been cast as Sophie.

Published in 1982, “The Bfg” — short for Big Friendly Giant — tells the tale of a young girl, the Queen of England and the Bfg, who set out on an adventure to capture the evil, man-eating giants who have been invading the human world. The movie will open in U.S. theaters on July 1, 2016.

DreamWorks acquired movie rights to the book in 2010 after Kathleen Kennedy brought it to the company. Melissa Mathison, who teamed with Spielberg and Kennedy on “E.T.,” wrote the screenplay.

Producers are Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Sam Mercer. Kennedy, John Madden and Michael Siegel are exec producing. Kristie Macosko Krieger »

Film Review: ‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken’

5 March 2015 2:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

About as appealing as day-old beer littered with cigarette butts, the abysmal caper drama “Kidnapping Mr. Heineken” is one of those international co-productions produced for all the right tax-credit reasons and none of the right artistic ones — the sort of movie one tends to find advertised in the back pages of a Cannes market guide, but hopes never to actually see. And yet, here it is: a slapped-together, wholly unconvincing account of the botched 1983 abduction of beer magnate Alfred “Freddy” Heineken, made from an incoherent script, with a cast of Anglo and Australian pretty boys not even trying to seem remotely Dutch, and one Oscar-winning star scraping career bottom. A most inauspicious English-language filmmaking debut for Daniel (brother of Tomas) Alfredson, “Kidnapping” will hold a handful of cinemas hostage beginning this weekend en route to the VOD slag heap.

The Heineken kidnapping was a major news story of its day in the Netherlands, »

The True Story in Kidnapping Mr. Heineken Tastes Flat

3 March 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

In 1983 — as chronicled in Dutch investigative reporter Peter R. de Vries's bestseller — five financially desperate childhood pals turned to crime, capturing wealthy beer magnate Freddy Heineken (and his chauffeur Ab Doderer) in broad daylight after robbing a bank to fund their operation. Not to be confused with 2011's liberties-taking thriller The Heineken Kidnapping (a more ambitious and exciting film, with Rutger Hauer as the abducted mogul), The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest director Daniel Alfredson's exposition-heavy English-language adaptation boasts an amusingly belligerent Anthony Hopkins as the brew baron and little else.

Review: 'Kidnapping Mr. Heineken' With Anthony Hopkins, Sam Worthington, Jim Sturgess, Ryan Kwanten, And More

3 March 2015 7:38 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's 1982 in Amsterdam, and for four friends, things aren't looking good in the true story dramatic thriller "Kidnapping Mr. Heineken." Willem Holleeder (Sam Worthington), Cor Van Hout (Jim Sturgess), Jan 'Cat' Boellard (Ryan Kwanten), and Frans 'Spikes' Meijer (Mark van Eeuwen) are all partners in a construction business that's about to go belly up. They're working-class guys, but they meet white-collar resistance when their attempt to get a bank loan to keep them afloat is rejected. Meanwhile, their sole asset and potential collateral — a run down, derelict building — has been overtaken by squatters who can't legally be moved. And while for most people this might mean trying to find a new job or starting a different business, these young men have had it with struggling to get by. So they take the next logical step and decide to kidnap the titular famous and wealthy beer magnate (Anthony Hopkins) and hold him for ransom, »

Title: Kidnapping Mr. Heineken Director: Daniel Alfredson Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Sam Worthington, Jim Sturgess and Ryan Kwanten People often take pride in all the hard work they put into garnering fame and fortune, particularly when their efforts provide much needed support for their families. But when their persistent work ethic fails to offer them enough money to efficiently provide for their loved ones, they’re often driven to take drastic measures to comfortably sustain them. That’s certainly the case in director Daniel Alfredson’s new action crime drama, ‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken,’ which is set to be released on Friday on iTunes and VOD and in theaters. The film, which is based on  [ Read More ]

Avatar 2 Will See Sigourney Weaver Play A Brand New Character

2 March 2015 8:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last we heard of Avatar 2 and its pair of subsequent sequels, director James Cameron had opted to delay the upcoming installments due to a complex script. This is largely due to the fact that all three movies are set to be filmed simultaneously, leaving cast and crew with a lot of plates to keep spinning. However, despite the events of the first Avatar in 2009, one seemingly core member of the original film set to rejoin production is Sigourney Weaver, who may not play Grace Augustine upon her return.

That’s according to the actress herself, who recently appeared on The Jonathan Ross show to talk all-things-Chappie (with a spice of Blomkamp’s mysterious Alien sequel thrown in for good measure, no doubt). And during the course of the interview, Weaver was asked how she will be able to return to the mystical world of Pandora. Put simply, the »

Kidnapping Mr. Heineken Review

1 March 2015 9:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yes, your first assumption is correct – Kidnapping Mr. Heineken details the imprisonment of Amsterdam’s most iconic beer entrepreneur, and even more shocking is that it’s based on a true crime. Back in 1983, Freddy Heineken and his driver Ab Doderer were kidnapped by local scoundrels and then released some three weeks later for 35 million Dutch guilders – the largest ransom ever paid for one individual. As an avid beer drinker and alcohol culture snob, my complete ignorance of the real event is surprising and shameful, but Daniel Alfredson does an amicable job of filling in the blanks. Peter R. de Vries’s source novelization serves as a proper jumping point for writer William Brookfield, as he and Alfredson find a tense balance between historical recreation and cinematic embellishment – either of which can easily sink a true story when handled clumsily.

This is typically the point where I explain a film’s central plot, »
