Sound On Sight Podcast, Episode 395: ‘Frank’ and ‘We Are The Best’

15 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This week on Sound On Sight, Simon and Ricky discuss Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank, a film with a striking performance from Michael Fassbender, who has to generate emotion without using the actor’s most visible asset: his face. But first we review We Are The Best, directed by Lukas Moodysson and adapted from a semi-autobiographical, Daniel Clowes-style graphic novel by Moodysson’s wife, Coco. In between we discuss various television shows including The Leftovers, The Knick, Bojack Horseman, American Horror Story, The Flash, Gotham and the art of making mix-tapes.

Noomi Rapace says God could be the baddie in Prometheus 2

20 October 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month Ridley Scott gave an update on the status of Prometheus 2, during which he stated that the iconic Xenomorph from his 1979 sci-fi classic Alien was “cooked” and would be absent from the next film as he continues to take the series in another direction. Now Prometheus star Noomi Rapace has shared her thoughts on who could be the antagonist of the follow-up, telling MTV News that:

“God, maybe? Or the devil? I don’t know where [Ridley's] gonna take us but I can’t wait to go there. I don’t know what we’re going to discover. Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. She can’t go to earth, there’s nothing left for her there really. She wants to go where [the Engineers] came from. She wants answers, she wants to know. I feel like I’m sharing her curiosity, but also her anger.”

As yet, there’s »

Watch: Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' Gets Its Cult Film Due

20 October 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Courtesy of a script by Cormac McCarthy, Ridley Scott’s 2013 thriller veers wildly between over-the-top satire reminiscent of Terry Southern at his most indelicate and grimly ghoulish violence a la McCarthy’s own "No Country For Old Men." The stellar cast, who seem down for anything, includes Michael Fassbender as the slightly honorable lawyer to an extremely dishonorable drug runner played by Javier Bardem. Brad Pitt drops in for a charming cameo as a doomed business associate but the film will be best remembered for Cameron Diaz as the crime lord’s girlfriend who reminds us you can’t spell “carnal” without “car”. »

Tom Hardy Wanted for Villain Role in X-men: Apocalypse

20 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like Suicide Squad isn't the only comic book movie that Tom Hardy is up for. According to The Wrap, the British actor is also up for the role of the villain Apocalypse in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse!

At one point Hardy was rumored to be up for the role of Doctor Strange, but it seems like that ship has sailed, and he's not on it. One thing for sure is, it looks like he's going to be attached to another comic book project in the near future. This wouldn't be the first time either, as he also played Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises

I think Hardy would be great in both Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. But if I had to choose to see him in one of those it would have to be as Apocalypse, because he would freakin' be awesome in that role! »

Tom Hardy wanted for X-Men: Apocalypse villain En Sabah Nur

20 October 2014 1:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hardy is reportedly being sought to play the villain in X-Men: Apocalypse.

The Dark Knight Rises star is wanted by director Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox to play En Sabah Nur, the world's first mutant who was born in Egypt around 3,000 BC.

The character, created by Louise and Walter Simonson, first appeared in X-Factor #6 and was glimpsed in the post-credits sequence for X-Men: Days of Future Past (where he was played by Brendan Pedder).

According to The Wrap, Hardy is also in the running for Warner Bros' Suicide Squad film and Marvel's Doctor Strange but won't be able to appear in all three.

X-Men: Apocalypse will see Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Evan Peters and Nicholas Hoult return for the sequel, which is due for release in May 2016.

Producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed that Apocalypse will be the final instalment of the X-Men prequel trilogy.

Quicksilver Concept Art For X-men: Days Of Future Past

19 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »

58th BFI London Film Festival – The Way He Looks (2014)

19 October 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Way He Looks (Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho), 2014.

Directed by Daniel Ribeiro.

Starring Ghilherme Lobo, Fabio Audi and Tess Amorim.

Synopsis:

A blind teenage boy falls in love with one of his classmates.

There’s a particular branch of film theory that deals entirely with the sense of touch in cinema; about how you experience what the protagonist feels onscreen. Not in some emotional, empathetic way, but as a physical response. The reeds on Russell Crowe’s hands as he wonders through Gladiator’s Elysian fields. The taste of the scrambled eggs at Michael Fassbender’s bedside in Hunger. The knee being caved in by the hammer of Kill List. It’s called ‘haptic visuality‘. In The Way He Looks, it’s ones lips practicing a kiss on the window of a shower.

The film’s title is a pun, so the movie had won points before it began. »

Tom Hardy Wanted for 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Villain

18 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

With the number of superhero movies in the pipeline, speculation over who will play what hero and what villain won't be ending any time soon and things are no different today as The Wrap reports Tom Hardy is being sought to play "En Sabah Nur," which means "The First One" and is also the name for the titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse, a character first introduced in 1986's "X-Factor" comics. I went into greater detail as to who this Apocalypse guy is right here as he's the blue fella you saw during the X-Men: Days of Future Past end credit sequence. To put it simply, he's the world's first mutant. Bryan Singer will return to direct X-Men: Apocalypse for a May 27, 2016 release with Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Hugh Jackman all expected to return. As for Hardy, he's also been listed as one of the actors »

Joel Edgerton Talks Thriller ‘Felony,’ ‘Exodus,’ Trials of Shooting ‘Jane Got a Gun’

18 October 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Joel Edgerton has one piece of advice to aspiring actors, it’s this: always be sure to check your inbox.

“I found an email the other day from my old agent in London, that I’d just sort of discarded because I was too busy at the time,” Edgerton recalls on a recent afternoon in New York, looking a tad professorial in full-rimmed glasses and beard. “It was this screenplay for a film by a first-time filmmaker that, if I was interested, I should consider auditioning for.” As it turned out, the filmmaker was Steve McQueen and the movie was “Hunger.”

Well, you win some and you lose some in this business, and lately Edgerton has been chalking up the wins. After back-to-back breakout performances in the Oscar-nominated “Animal Kingdom” (2010) and “Warrior” (2011), the 40-year-old Australian actor and screenwriter has been working nonstop in Hollywood, from his Navy Seal commander »

Tom Hardy wanted for title role in X-Men: Apocalypse

18 October 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He’s been linked to Marvel StudiosDoctor Strange and Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad in recent days, and now The Wrap is reporting that 20th Century Fox is also courting Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) for one of its own superhero projects, with the site claiming that the British actor is wanted for the role of En Sabah Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse, in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

Last week, director Bryan Singer revealed that casting is underway on the follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past, so you would expect the primary focus to be on finding an actor to portray the ancient mutant. However, if rumours are true, Hardy may have to make a decision between Apocalypse and Suicide Squad, given that they’re both due for release in 2016 (as is Doctor Strange, but he’s one of several thousand names linked to that particular role).

Film Review: Birdman

17 October 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The layers blurring reality and fantasy run deep with Alejandro González Iñárritu’s new film, Birdman, both within the story and in real life. Iñárritu had become known for his trilogy of everything-is-connected mope-fests (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, and Babel), and then followed those up with a widely panned film called Biutiful that straightened out the narrative intricacies but still kept all the misery porn. So what to do next? Well, I wouldn’t call it a comeback, just as Birdman’s main character, a struggling actor named Riggan Thomson (played by Michael Keaton) who played an iconic superhero character twenty-five years ago and who is struggling to put on a Broadway adaptation of a Raymond Carver short story, wouldn’t call it a comeback either. Iñárritu’s wild meta-commentary comedy Birdman instead eschews categorization and proudly defines itself as an unconventional tour de force.

16 October 2014 2:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Channing Tatum has promised to offer a "fresh" take on Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse.

The actor hinted at an original take on the X-Man for Bryan Singer's next outing in 20th Century Fox's franchise.

He also hinted at plans for multiple appearances in the expanding franchise for Remy LeBeau.

"We're obviously going to go to the saving the world superhero movies eventually, but not for the first one."

The movie will see the X-Men face off against the classic villain Apocalypse, a mutant born in Ancient Egypt.

How They Made That Quicksilver Scene in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

15 October 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you loved X-Men: Days of Future Past over the summer, today is a good day, because the time traveling X-Men franchise mash-up hits Blu-Ray & DVD today. One of the best parts of the film was when Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters, got a chance to show off the potential of his super speedy powers. As Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) are trying to break Magneto (Michael Fassbender) out of a seemingly inescapable prison, Quicksilver goes into his speedy Zen-style state while listening to "Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce, and the result is awesome. But how did they make it? Watch! Here's a featurette on making the Quicksilver scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past (via Wired): Here's another short featurette on that awesome Quicksilver scene as well: Be sure to check out this awesome VFX reel from X-Men Days of Future Past too. »

New on DVD/Blu-ray: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Is Big, Ambitious and Immensely Entertaining

X-Men: Days of Future Past - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD Director: Bryan Singer Cast: Hugh JackmanJames McAvoyMichael Fassbender,Jennifer LawrencePatrick Stewart. Full cast + crew Everyone is so focused on the Marvel cinematic universe that people tend to forget that the X-Men cinematic universe is at the top of its game right now. Days of Future Past was a production that seemed like it was destined to fail. It was boasting an absurd amount of characters, it promised to tie together two different timelines, and it had a beloved comic storyline to live up to. Those are all difficult things to pull off, and yet returning director Bryan Singer did it in a big and immensely entertaining way. All the stuff fans feared would go wrong...
