DVD Review – Need for Speed (2014)

21 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Need for Speed, 2014

Directed by Scott Waugh

Starring Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Scott Mescudi, Rami Malek, Ramon Rodreiguez, Harrison Gilbertson and Michael Keaton

Synopsis:

Fresh from prison, a street racer who was framed by a wealthy business associate joins a cross country race with revenge in mind. His ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins.

The Fast and Furious franchise has a certain level of appeal. They are utterly preposterous and very silly, but they have a charm and energy about them which makes them hard to criticise. It seems as though the filmmakers behind Need for Speed thought they could get away with the same thing. The only problem is that the film has all the charm of a dead slug and it’s paced about as well as one.

Based off the game series in name alone, »

Set Report Part 2: Talking With the Cast of Dracula Untold

18 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

When Dracula Untold arrives in theaters October 17th, it will tell more than just the origin story of the greatest vampire of all time, it will focus on a family and what one man would do to protect his wife and son; it will focus on a wife who watches her husband transform into something sinister; and, it will focus on a childhood relationship that drives one man's jealousy and anger. When Shock Till You Drop visited the set of Dracula Untold in Belfast, Ireland in the fall of 2013, we spoke to the three actors driving the film's dramatic themes: Luke Evans as Vlad Tepes, Sarah Gadon as his wife Mirena and Dominic Cooper as Mehmet II.

A leaked casting breakdown has revealed apparent details about the new supporting characters in Marvel's upcoming"Agent Carter" series on ABC.

At present Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter and Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark are the only known returning actors for the eight episode, mid-season premiere series.

Film Divider posted the description and claims the key new roles include:

Deputy Director Roger Hooley: A hardworking, principled older man and Peggy’s boss. As you might expect, he’s bothered by ongoing problems in his personal life as well as the challenges of his day job.

Agent Jack Thompson: 30-something. Handsome and damn well knows it. The polar opposite of Dooley, he doesn’t take kindly to women in the workplace, nor how little recognition he gets. Worse, he wants Dooley’s job and is desperate to prove himself.

Edward Hutchins: A highly professional agent with an unusual problem; duplicity. »

‘Dracula Untold’: Dominic Cooper Promises A Dark Vampire Origin Story

16 July 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In addition to a fan-favorite turn (with possible returns in the future) as Marvel’s Howard Stark, father to Iron Man, Tony Stark, Dominic Cooper has been seen in several high-profile franchise films in the last few years – with more already scheduled. Most recently, the actor served as antagonist to the racing game movie, Need for Speed – only to sign on for a role in the highly anticipated World of Warcraft adaptation (set to hit theaters in 2016). Last year, the actor played supporting Vampire hunter Henry Sturges in the genre-bending novel adaptation Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – one of the bright spots in a film that fell short of finding the same success as its ...

Go Behind the Scenes with New Dracula Untold Stills

16 July 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Universal's 'Dracula Untold' hits theatres this October with Brit star Luke Evans taking over the legendary role. The studio have revealed a small batch of new stills including a couple of behind the scenes snaps that feature Evans and director Gary Shore. Along with the previously released trailer I can't honestly say I'm sold on this project. I'll admit that vampirism is by far my least enjoyed sub-genre and from all the teasers and assets unleashed on us so far I'm not exactly blown away. Let's hope things can change in the next months leading up to its October premiere. 'Dracula Untold' also stars Sarah Gadon ('The Amazing Spider-Man 2'), Dominic Cooper ('Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'), Zach McGowan, Thor Kristjansson, Art Parkinson, and Samantha Barks ('Les Miserables').

Need For Speed DVD Review

16 July 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Scott Waugh

Starring: Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Michael Keaton, Scott Mescudi, Rami Malek, Ramon Rodriguez, Harrison Gilbertson, Dakota Johnson

Certificate: 12

Running Time: 125 minutes

If you’re looking for a fun, family friendly watch for a Sunday afternoon Need For Speed is it. Inspired by the racing game franchise the film is exactly what you would expect, filled with elaborate stunts and sensational cars.

Car crazed fans will thoroughly enjoy the thrill, but can be reassured only replicas were harmed in the making. The film is a fun one-time watch and offers a new perspective for race car movies. Director Scott Waugh offers an authentic feel to the elaborate stunts, refusing to employ CGI and instead decimating some beautiful replicas.

The film follows street racer Toby Marshall (Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul), who is framed for a crime he didn’t commit and is determined to seek revenge. »

Dominic Cooper Talks Playing the Villain, Vlad & Mehmet’s Rivalry, Their Shared Darkness, Heavy Armor and More on the Set of Dracula Untold

15 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Dominic Cooper’s Mehmet has some serious sibling rivalry issues in Dracula Untold.  As inspired by the real history of Mehmet II and Vlad III (Luke Evans), also known as Vlad the Impaler, Mehmet becomes enrage when his father takes Vlad in, raises, trains and then favors Vlad over him.  Even when Vlad heads off to lead the people of Transylvania and attempt to leave his violent past with the Turks behind, Mehmet is still hell-bent on punishing Vlad, so hits him where it’ll hurt most; if Vlad wants to keep the peace between the Transylvanians and the Turks, he’ll have to give up 1,000 boys to Mehmet’s army, including his very own son (Art Parkinson). It’s harsh stuff, but while on the film’s Belfast, Ireland set, Cooper admitted, it’s quite fun to play the villain, especially when the villain is so well written.  Hit »

'Dracula Untold': Luke Evans has his 'own fangs' - but can he kill as a leading man?

15 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If nothing else, Luke Evans has one distinct physical attribute that makes him the perfect choice to play Dracula. “I have my own fangs,” jokes the actor on the set of forthcoming origin actioner “Dracula Untold.” And he does – look at any photo where the “Fast & Furious 6” baddie is showing his teeth and you’ll notice his prominent canines immediately. Fortuitous? Certainly. But of course, his pearlies aren’t what bagged him the part. Being Luke Evans did. The Welsh actor has been such a ubiquitous big-screen presence over the last several years that it’s easy to forget that his first major Hollywood film, 2010’s “Clash of the Titans,” is only four years old.  Since then he’s racked up quite an impressive resume, from Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Three Musketeers” to sword-n-sandals actioner “Immortals” to “F&F 6” to his role as the Bard in the last two »
