Earlier this month, it was reported that Fast and Furious 6 villain Luke Evans will be playing Eric Draven in The Crow remake set up over at Relativity Media. It seems like a lot of fans would have preferred to see Tom Hiddleston, who was up for the part at one point, in the role. Of course, fans of the original film don't want to see The Crow remade at all. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to stop it. The only way that you can drive this point home to Hollywood is to not see the movie when it's released. Only if it doesn't succeed will they admit to making a mistake, because if it makes money they're going to keep doing it.
During a recent interview with Empire, Evans is asked about the reboot, and this is what he had to say...
He doesn't reveal much, but he does »

Luke Evans is now set to star in the upcoming remake of The Crow. Bradley Cooper was once attached, Tom Hiddleston was rumoured, even James McAvoy was considered, but it's official: Evans will don Draven's corpse paint. Speaking to Evans at the Fast & Furious 6 junket recently, Empire asked him about it, and here's what he had to say. brightcove.createExperiences();Though he doesn't reveal too much about the angle the reboot will take - that's a question for director F. Javier Gutierrez - it's interesting to see how positive and confident Evans is about challenging the first adaptation from way back in 1994, brought to us by director Alex Proyas and star Brandon Lee. This new Crow was kickstarted by Stephen Norrington in 2009, with the Blade director planning to shoot his own screenplay, which would have taken place in Detroit and the American Southwest. Nick Cave wrote a draft in 2010, before »
Congrats to Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Commander John Harrison in today’s new release Star Trek Into Darkness, for waking me out of cryosleep and forcing me to remember how hot a good movie villain can be. Star Trek Into Darkness is shaping up to be a killer sequel to J.J. Abrams‘ unbeatable 2009 original, and in honor of Cumberbatch’s sinister, dead sexy allure, we’re counting up the 10 hottest villains ever!
Tom Hiddleston is a jovial and cool-seeming guy in interviews, but in Thor, the thespian’s unflinching intensity and sheer weirdness make for an unusual, cartoonish, but sexy villain. If Loki is a trickster, the greatest trick he ever pulled was challenging Chris Hemsworth’s sexiness and succeeding.
Nothing makes a villain hotter than sardonic one-liners, and Christian Slater spouted them without hesitation as J.D. »

Sometimes a movie so fantastically bizarre comes together that it sounds like it's some sort of brilliant Madlib. That's how I lovingly think of Only Lovers Left Alive, a romantic drama written and directed by art house auteur Jim Jarmusch that stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as vampire lovers. It seems utterly outlandish, and yet oddly perfect. In the film, Hiddleston plays a vampire/rock musician called Adam. Swinton is his Eve, literally.her name is Eve. And together these two live in undead bliss.until Eve's spunky little sister Ava (played by Stoker's Mia Wasikowska) turns up. Only Lovers Left Alive is poised to make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 25th. And in anticipation of its debut, io9 has uncovered a pair of clips that give us our first look at these lovers in action. Up top is a clip that shows »
Don't expect the usual brand of bloodsuckers in Jim Jarmusch's upcoming vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive. The director has already revealed that there won't be the usual neck biting and cheesy mirror tricks we're normally presented with in vamp films. Tom Hiddleston plays Adam, a depressed, underground musician (described as a moody "Hamlet-like" character) who reunites with his lover through the centuries, Eve (Tilda Swinton). They find their passionate homecoming interrupted by Eve's wild sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska). John Hurt and Anton Yelchin also star in the Cannes contender, which premieres on May 25. In two new clips from The Playlist, we see sparks flying between the couple and a bit of Ava's childlike personality rearing its head...

Are you ready for a little vampire action, Jim Jarmusch style? The iconoclastic indie director heads to Cannes with his Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston starring vampire picture Only Lovers Left Alive and while plot information remains relatively scarce a pair of clips from the film have turned up over at The Playlist. The intent of the scarce marketing thus far has clearly been to let the film speak for itself so I'll do just that. Check the clips below....

Maverick director Jim Jarmusch is back with with his first effort since 2005s Broken Flowers with a brooding, bloodthirsty love story Only Lovers Left Alive. The plot centres on vampires Adam and Eve, who’ve been together for centuries but find a their immortal lifestyle, currently masquerading as depressed underground rock musicians, tested by the arrival of one of their siblings.

The film will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival beginning this weekend but is still awaiting a release date on both sides of the Atlantic

When Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive" was missing from the initial lineup announcement for the Cannes Film Festival, we were a bit bummed out, but about a week later, it was slotted as a late addition to the Competition lineup, adding another great title to an already stacked slate. There hasn't been much thus far from the movie itself, with the excitement resting solely on the cast (Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin, Tom Hiddleston) and the fact that it's about vampires. But now, two clips from the movie have landed providing the first look at 'Lovers,' but it remains intriguingly enigmatic. The movie follows Adam (Hiddleston), an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who reunites with his centuries long lover Eve (Swinton), but finds their relationship interrupted by her wild sister, Ava (Wasikowska). So yeah, sounds pretty great and in these two clips, »

Hollywood and the world's most prestigious film festival, Cannes, have conducted an on-off romance down the years – and now they're closer than ever. But have they got too cosy? As the Croisette opens for business, Xan Brooks investigates
In among the ligging and rigging of last year's Cannes film festival, visitors may have spotted James Toback and Alec Baldwin trudging wearily back and forth along the Croisette. The director and star, it now transpires, were in town to shoot a very meta documentary – a film about their efforts to actually make a film. For a 10-day spell they interviewed everyone from Ryan Gosling to Martin Scorsese, Nicole Kidman to Roman Polanski. Along the way they took the temperature of a festival perched at the intersection between art and commerce. The documentary's title, Seduced and Abandoned, alludes to Baldwin's description of the film industry as "the world's worst girlfriend". But it »

nBaz Luhrman's 1920s extravaganza to open 66th festival and cement Surrey girl Carey Mulligan's arrival in Hollywood A-list
Many people might think The Great Gatsby has already had a premiere with reviews from American screenings widely available. But for its British star, Carey Mulligan, the red carpet Cannes screening of Baz Luhrmann's 3D extravaganza on Wednesday evening will secure her position among the top flight of international talent.
The film will officially open the annual event in the south of France, regarded as the leading festival in the cinema industry's calendar. Mulligan is expected to attend alongside Lurhrman and her co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, and will be the glamorous focus of the most high-profile function of the fortnight.
The actor from Surrey, who is married to Marcus Mumford of the award-winning band Mumford and Sons, is to have a second moment of glory later in the festival when she »

It’s pretty much written in stone that a Justice League movie will be released in the next few years as DC rushes to get its answer to The Avengers out as soon as possible. Of course, the most interesting obstacle to watch the filmmakers overcome is how to meld the already existing world established in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy with whatever direction they want to go with The Justice League.
With Christian Bale in the role, Batman has taken the superhero genre to new heights in recent years, though with Bale passing on The Justice League, the role will have to be recast but unfortunately, few actors seem capable of fulfilling all the requirements.
Whichever actor dons the cape must be able to portray Bruce Wayne the tortured individual, Bruce Wayne the charismatic playboy, and of course be intimidating enough to pull off the Caped Crusader. Unfortunately, »

Earlier this week Relativity Media finally found its leading man for the long-gestating remake of The Crow when Luke Evans (Immortals, Fast & Furious 6) was announced as having secured the role of Eric Draven in the latest retelling of comic book creator James O'Barr's supernatural revenge tale.
Evans secured the role ahead of rumoured candidates such as James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood), and the Welsh actor has wasted little time in discussing the forthcoming remake, which sees him stepping into the shoes of Brandon Lee, whose life was tragically cut short during the making of the original.
"[The Crow] was a very poignant film from my childhood, which I remember vividly," Evans tells ComingSoon. "The soundtrack, also. It was such a solid performance that Brandon Lee gave. It was a very tragic end for somebody that probably would have had a very promising career. »

Franco will play Tomas, a writer who accidentally causes the death of a child and spends the next 12 years examining the effect of the tragedy on his life and that of Kate, the child’s mother. Wenders said the film was “a story of guilt and forgiveness, and of accepting things you cannot change anymore.”
HanWay Films reps the film in international markets, and will introduce it to buyers at Cannes.
Wenders’ previous film, “Pina,” grossed over $30 million worldwide. »

Ewan McGregor might be the latest (and hopefully last) actor to join his "Star Wars" co-star Natalie Portman in "Jane Got a Gun." McGregor, who appeared as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the three "Star Wars" prequels, is poised to take over the role of the lead villain in the Western, after Jude Law left and Bradley Cooper's schedule didn't work out. As reported last week, the short list of actors that were being considered for the lead baddie were "Thor" star Tom Hiddleston, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- McGregor's name was nowhere to be found. Perhaps that leak was a psych-out; there's no doubt that McGregor is leading man (or villain) material. So far, "Jane Got a Gun" has been more like a game of musical chairs than the straightforward production that its star and producer Natalie Portman had probably hoped for. Director Lynne Ramsay left the »
