X-men: Apocalypse Adds Lucas Till; Independence Day 2 Brings Back Bill Pullman

14 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There’s been talk of Bill Pullman’s return as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day 2 for a while, but now it’s finally official - although technically he can’t be president anymore, right? Regardless, not only did Roland Emmerich announce Pullman’s return, but he also revealed that Judd Hirsch will be back as well. Hirsch played David’s (Jeff Goldblum) father Julius Levinson in the original. So now the list of returning cast members includes Pullman, Hirsch, Goldblum, Brent Spiner as Dr. Brackish Okun, the kooky scientist at Area 51, and Vivica A. Fox as Captain Steven Hiller’s (Will Smith) wife, Jasmine Dubrow. As for the newcomers, we’ve got Liam Hemsworth as President Whitmore’s son-in-law, Jessie Usher as Steven Hiller’s son (presumably an older Dylan Dubrow), Travis Tope as a character named Charlie, and Charlotte Gainsbourg and Joey King in unknown roles. »

Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to announce that Lucas Till is set to reprise his role as Alex Summers / Havok in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, with the actor joining an ever growing list of characters in the mutant superhero sequel.

Glassland Review

18 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Question; what do you do when your first movie earns you an award whose previous recipients include Michael Fassbender and Soairse Ronan, as well as being met with widespread critical acclaim? If you're Gerard Barrett, you try to follow it up with another indie drama brimming over with emotional depth and anchored by some magnificent performances. Barrett's feature debut, Pilgrim Hill, was widely lauded on it's release, but rather than sit back and wait for Hollywood to come knocking, he's crafted another visceral and potent drama with a host of Irish and international talent. Glassland is a story about relationships and how the strains of life can lead even the strongest bonds to fracture and splint. Jack Reynor plays John, a young man working a job he's not enamored with in his local suburb, but one on whom his mother is increasingly dependent on to fund her alcoholism. Their relationship »

'12 Years A Slave' Writer John Ridley Penning Mystery Marvel TV Series For Currently Existing Superhero

18 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Time to put on the speculation hats. Marvel is continuing to expand their comic book universe on the small screen, but here's the twist — it's not going to be for a new character. EW reports that John Ridley ("12 Years A Slave," "All Is By My Side," "American Crime") has been tapped by the studio to develop a new series for ABC that involves "reinventing" a current Marvel character/property. Hmm....any thoughts? It's an intriguing notion and makes you wonder who Marvel wants to do-over or continue in a different way on the small screen. And it's a top shelf talent being enlisted here, which also raises eyebrows. Read More: Review: '12 Years A Slave' Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender & More Meanwhile, that's not all the comic book company has cooking. They're also working on an equally mysterious "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." spinoff. Again, no details on which characters will carry »

New Slow West Trailer Features a Wryly Comic Michael Fassbender

16 April 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I actually wasn't aware of Slow West until today despite the fact that we covered an earlier trailer in addition to Matt filing a positive review out of Sundance. But I'm all in for it now. I love westerns and this one seems to have such an arch, dry and comically violent tone that I likely will not be able to resist it. The film stars Michael Fassbender as an outlaw seemingly so badass he waxes like Cormac McCarthy on the regular. He's helping Kodi Smit-McPhee find his long lost love and you've also got Ben Mendelsohn being very Mendelsohnian. Slow West was written and directed by John MacLean who appears to have emerged wholly formed as a filmmaker 20 years after getting his start as a member of The Beta Band (no joke). Check out the new Slow West trailer below. The film also stars Caren Pistorious and Rory McCann. »

Cannes Film Festival 2015 Lineup Includes Inside Out, New Woody Allen, and More

16 April 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The films competing in the 68th Cannes Film Festival were announced this morning at a press conference in Paris. The festival’s new president Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux kept the suspense going as they unveiled this year’s eclectic and rather art house-y selection. In total, 16 films have been selected in the official competition thus far. Another four films are set to be added in the next couple of weeks. The official competition will be presided by the Coen Brothers. Their short film about cinema, which had screened for the 65th anniversary of the festival in 2007, was once again shown at the press conference. Starring Josh Brolin, it is both funny and poignant. American competitors include Todd Haynes with Carol, starring Cate Blanchett, and Gus Van Sant is marking his return to the Croisette with The Sea of Trees, starring Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts. Australian co-production Macbeth, directed by Justin Kurzel, »

We know that today is Batman/Cannes/Star Wars day, but there's something else you should know: the western "Slow West" is hitting DirecTV, and it's one you should be checking out. And just in time, a new international trailer has surfaced showing off a bit more from the movie, whose cast alone should have you ordering this up.

Read More: Sundance Review: ‘Slow West’ Starring Michael Fassbender, Kodi Smit-McPhee & Ben Mendelsohn "Unforgiven" (1992)Perhaps the epitome of the modern Western, Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning epic "Unforgiven" is a melancholic meditation on the West, exploring its myths and its history through a dark and violent lens. The film is set in 1881, with Eastwood starring as William Munny, a retired outlaw who returns to the trade after years of settling down as a farmer. Celebrated for its moral ambiguity and noir atmosphere, the film simultaneously debunks and pays tribute to one of cinema's most established genres by expertly juxtaposing violence and heroism, as well as courage and revenge. Principally noted for its anti-violence expression, "Unforgiven" went on to become the »

Complete 2015 Cannes Film Festival Lineup

16 April 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced this morning and it's quite impressive as it includes several titles I'd be rushing to line up for, which makes my not going for the second year in a row all the more frustrating. Titles I'd be most excited to see including the new Jacques Audiard movie Dheepan, the new film from Yorgos Lanthimos The Lobster and Denis Villeneuve's Sicario. Matteo Garrone's The Tale of Tales is obviously an exciting title as are Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, Carol from Todd Haynes and Youth from Paolo Sorrentino. Gus Van Sant will arrive on the Croisette with The Sea of Trees starring Matthew McConaughey, Pixar will arrive with Inside Out, Woody Allen's Irrational Man will screen and we already knew Mad Max: Fury Road would screen. I won't lie, seeing the lineup had me considering looking at the bank »
