First Godzilla 2 Photo Teases Major Connection to 1954 Original

14 August 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Michael Dougherty (Krampus) is hard at work on Godzilla 2 right now, which is currently slated for release on March 22, 2019. The movie is going to do a lot for hardcore fans of the franchise by bringing on some classic kaiju from the history of the series with Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah joining up with the King of the Monsters. Now, Dougherty has revealed a new set photo that appears to be teasing a major connection to the original 1954 Godzilla movie.

Michael Dougherty recently took to Twitter in order to post a photo from the set of Godzilla 2 that doesn't feature any monsters in it, but is definitely a (potentially) big deal. Those who have seen the original Godzilla will likely recognize the weapon depicted in the photo as the Oxygen Destroyer, a weapon that removes oxygen from whatever body of water it is placed in and was used to »

Doug Liman Explains His ‘Justice League Dark’ Exit

10 August 2017 6:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After having seen Doug Liman‘s latest film, “The Wall” starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson an John Cena, I couldn’t help, but start thinking about the writer-director’s track record and how great his hits to misses ratio has been so far in his 18 year  career. No small feat,  given the current climate of today’s blockbuster-crazed Hollywood standards, Liman is still delvering his own creative vision on-screen and doing so with limited attention directed towards it.

Chloe Grace Moretz on Growing Up, Hillary Clinton and Hollywood Sexism

8 August 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One year ago, the Democratic National Convention was buzzing with celebrities like Meryl Streep, Lena Dunham, and Elizabeth Banks. But none of them had closer proximity to the candidate than Chloë Grace Moretz, who took the stage 45 minutes before Hillary Clinton.

“It was one of the happiest moments of my life, that’s for sure,” recalls Moretz, 20, on a recent afternoon, sitting with her two-month-old pug, Ruby. The actress had such a plum spot at the DNC because organizers were hoping she’d reach first-time millennial voters.

Moretz has something in common with her multitasking generation: She knows what it’s like to burn out as a teenager. After appearing in dozens of movies since she was a pint-size kid, Moretz realized at 18 that she needed a yearlong break. She left her home in Los Angeles for a solitary vacation in Tulum, Mexico, embarked on a few road trips, dated and spent time with her friends — a »

Exclusive: Doug Liman on The Wall, Live Die Repeat & Repeat – and why we never saw a sequel for Swingers

31 July 2017 8:16 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

With a staggeringly impressive back catalogue of movies to his name, Doug Liman has returned to his roots somewhat with his latest endeavour The Wall – a lower-budget affair driven the characters that inhabit this brutal landscape.

We discusses the appeal of this narrative, and the pressure that derives from depicting modern warfare. We then got onto the subject of Live Die Repeat and Repeat – a sequel to the immensely popular Edge of Tomorrow. Liman explains what compelled him to return to this world, why the studio weren’t quite so keen to begin with – and exactly why he believes this film will be ever better than the original. On the subject of sequels, he also discusses why he never made a follow-up to Swingers, though admitted it was a thought that crossed his mind…

So what was it about this screenplay which appealed to you as a director and storyteller? »

‘The Wall’ Review

31 July 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, John Cena, Laith Nakli | Written by Dwain Worrell | Directed by Doug Liman

Director Doug Liman follows up Edge of Tomorrow with this stripped down Iraqi sniper thriller that plays like an Iraq War version of Joel Schumacher’s Phone Booth.

Set in 2007 – at the tail-end of the war, with Bush having declared victory – the film effectively takes place at a single location. When Army Ranger sharpshooter Sgt Shane Matthews (WWE star John Cena) and his spotter, Sgt Allen “Eyes” Isaac (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) arrive at the scene of a distress call, they discover eight bodies (including civilians and their military liaison officers) lying dead near an unfinished pipeline. After observing the area from a distance for the past 24 hours, Matthews believes it is safe and approaches the bodies, only to take a hit from an unseen sniper that leaves him severely wounded.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson joins Chris Pine in Outlaw King

30 July 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is set to join Chris Pine in Outlaw King, the new film from Starred Up and Hell or High Water director David Mackenzie.

The Netflix film will see Pine as Robert the Bruce, the Scottish king and national hero who led his country during the First War of Scottish Independence against England. Taylor-Johnson will take on the role of James Douglas (initially earmarked for Pine’s Hell or High Water co-star Ben Foster), Robert’s right-hand man. Production on the film is slated to begin this August in Scotland.

Taylor-Johnson was most recently seen in Doug Liman’s Iraq War thriller The Wall. Pine meanwhile will next be seen in Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time, and has just signed on to reunite with his Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on the TV series One Day She’ll Darken. »

The Wall review – hardly shoot to thrill

30 July 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s performance isn’t strong enough to save Doug Liman’s dull, stripped-back war film

This stripped-back three-hander from Doug Liman, director of the Bourne trilogy and Edge of Tomorrow, is set in Iraq in 2007. Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays a shrill American soldier, badly wounded and trapped behind a crumbling low wall as his partner (John Cena) lays unconscious at the mercy of an enemy sniper. It’s an interesting premise, with moments of tension and visceral gore, but Taylor-Johnson’s performance isn’t strong enough to rescue the film from lengthy stretches of banality. A dusty, beige palette offers no respite from the dullness and the film’s central question – “The war is over. You’re still here. Why?” – is only asked in its last reel.

Ryan Lambie Simon Brew Jul 31, 2017

Director Doug Liman on the Edge Of Tomorrow title - and why he's adamant about the name to its sequel...

Director Doug Liman has two films arriving in UK cinemas in the space of a month. Now playing is The Wall, his impressive, smaller movie starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson. And then he’s reteamed with Tom Cruise for American Made that we’ll see in August.

He’s due to reteam with Cruise again too for Edge Of Tomorrow 2, that'll be going by the name Live Die Repeat Repeat. The first film overcame difficult marketing and an odd title change to win audiences over, albeit not making anyone phenomenally rich. And chatting to this very site, Doug Liman told us that he was frustrated too that the movie – based on the book All You Need »
