Jessica Chastain in talks to join Jake Gyllenhaal in Ubisoft's The Division

5 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Unfortunately we're still waiting for a film to come along and break the so called video-game movie curse; Duncan Jones' Warcraft didn't wind up being the film to do it and now it's up to Assassin's Creed, the upcoming adaptation of the Ubisoft franchise of the same name starring Michael Fassbender. Ubisoft has been attracting some big talent to their upcoming... Read More »

Jessica Chastain in Talks to Star With Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘The Division’ Adaptation

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jessica Chastain is in talks to co-star with Jake Gyllenhaal in Ubisoft Pictures’ adaptation of its hit video game “The Division.”

Gyllenhaal is producing the project with Ubisoft’s Gerard Guillemot.

Developed and published by Ubisoft, with assistance from Red Storm Entertainment, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the third-person shooter is set in a dystopian New York City in the aftermath of a smallpox pandemic. The player, who is an agent of the Strategic Homeland Division, commonly referred to as simply “The Division,” is tasked with helping to rebuild the Division’s operations in Manhattan, investigating the nature of the outbreak and combating criminal activity in its wake.

Early reports had the game reaching $330 million dollars in sales in just five days, and that number has surely grown in recent weeks. Ubisoft will package the project, possibly adding one more actor to the mix before shopping it to studios. »

Tiff Lineup: 5 Reasons to Get Excited About the 2016 Program

11 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the middle of summer, when moviegoing options are slim, it’s hard to visualize the sheer scope of films that will screen this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival. No single film commands all the buzz, nor can one lineup, and so the first big announcement — featuring the Galas and Special Presentations — can only begin to provide some insight into the titles worthy of anticipation.

Still, there’s a lot to dig through: Oscar hopefuls looking to gain momentum (“The Birth of a Nation,”  “Loving” and more detailed here); big-budget studio efforts hoping to earn some upscale cred (Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi “Arrival”); veteran filmmakers still pursuing the kind of topics that put them on the map (Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” Mira Nair’s “Queen of Katwe”).

Beyond these obvious standouts, however, several titles from these programs hold a lot of potential for »

Michael Fassbender Says ‘Alien: Covenent’ Will Be “Much Scarier Than Prometheus”

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

For fans of the “Alien” franchise, Ridley Scott‘s “Prometheus” was a lot of things, and few were very good. Many found the characterizations frustrating and the story not particularly compelling, and perhaps worst of all, the fear that was embedded in the original 1979 film was largely absent in the prequel. Sure, there was Noomi Rapace‘s […]

Michael Fassbender Says Alien: Covenant Is Much Scarier Than Prometheus

25 July 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Alien franchise hasn't exactly been branded as the feel-good series of the century. It is a series that had its origins in the sci-fi/horror genres before it quickly moved into the action/sci-fi genre with its sophomore outing, Prometheus. Ever since then, it's largely stayed squarely within the general science fiction genre, with plenty of action to spare. The closest the series ever got back to its original tone was probably in 2012's Prometheus, but it still never compared to the original in the horror arena. 

In a recent interview with Collider, actor Michael Fassbender (who plays the morally ambiguous android, David) expressed his satisfaction with Alien: Covenant, the direct sequel to Prometheus and prequel to the original Alien.

“This Alien is going to be… I’m very excited to see it and everybody in the film was saying this is a film that we all want to see. »

The movie that ignited the relationship between Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander is finally coming to the big screen. And if the actors' chemistry in person is any indication, their connection in The Light Between Oceans will be Oscar-worthy on its own. The psychological drama, based on the 2013 novel by M. L. Stedman, is in theaters Sept. 2. The real-life couple, coming off a triumphant awards season for Vikander, play a childless couple who raise a baby they rescue from a rowboat as their own.

Alien: Covenant To Be “Much Scarier” Than Prometheus, According To Michael Fassbender

25 July 2016 11:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Prometheus doubled down on existential themes of discovery and chronicling our history amid the cosmos, then Alien: Covenant is primed to steer Ridley Scott’s prequel back to the franchise’s dark, acid-spewing roots.

At least, that’s according to Michael FassbenderThe Light Between Oceans actor spoke to Collider over the weekend, revealing that Covenant is shaping up to be “much scarier” than its divisive forebear.

Similar to how James Cameron expanded the series into full-blown action territory with the remarkable Aliens in ’86, it appears that Fox’s prized sci-fi series will use Covenant to circle back to the horror elements associated with Ridley Scott’s original genre classic, Alien.

Fassy: "Covenant" Scarier Than "Prometheus"

25 July 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Ridley Scott's "Alien: Covenant" has wrapped with a full year to go before it cinemas. So far some images from the set have teased the "Prometheus" follow-up which will take a more direct route towards 1979's original "Alien".

Now one of the returning cast members, Michael Fassbender, has revealed to Collider that one big difference between the films is that Scott is trying to up the scare factor in the new entry with a tone much more akin to the original "Alien" film's horror elements:

"This Alien is going to be… I'm very excited to see it and everybody in the film was saying this is a film that we all want to see. It's much scarier than Prometheus but it's got the same sort of scope of Prometheus. Its kind of got more of the sort of thriller, imminent disaster feel that Alien had, so it's kind of »

Danny McBride shows off the cockpit in Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes photo

22 July 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the end of production on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant, star Danny McBride took to Instagram to share a photo of himself on set. In the film, McBride portrays a pilot, so it’s only fitting that the posted picture features the actor in his ship’s cockpit, sporting a space cowboy look. The snapshot was accompanied by a caption that read, “That’s a wrap on #aliencovenant. Ridley is going to scare the shit out of you.” See it here…

Of course, the actor is best known for his comedic work in such films and TV shows as Pineapple Express, This is the End, Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals (which premiered on HBO last week), so Covenant will certainly be new territory for McBride, as it brings him into a darker and more horror-infused environment.
