Ready Player One Set Video Shows Off Spielberg's Dystopian Universe

16 August 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It has been a while since Steven Spielberg has treated audiences to a major live-action blockbuster. That is all going to change in early 2018 when the highly anticipated adaptation of Ernest Cline's beloved sci-fi novel Ready Player One hits theaters. Production recently started on this massive undertaking, with some set photos having just hit the web, giving us a look at the dystopian world that Spielberg is crafting.

Filming is currently taking place on Ready Player One in Birmingham, England. Thanks to the Twitter I Choose Birmingham, we now have a couple of videos and photos from the set. One of the videos shows the crew setting up cameras, lights and other such things, but it shows off the background, which is very broken down, decrepit and dour. The second video simply shows a very beaten up, graffiti plastered postal truck being parked. The rest of the photos show »

Toby Kebbell Talks Ben-Hur, Chariot Races and Remakes | Exclusive

16 August 2016 9:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the many perks of living in Los Angeles is one's ability to run into actors, filmmakers and other random celebrities at any time. While I get to talk to actors and filmmakers regularly as part of my job, it's always pleasant when you run into someone in public, who is just genuinely nice and cool. In January, while waiting in a concessions line at a movie theater, I realized I was standing in front of Toby Kebbell. I eventually introduced myself, told him I was a fan, and we had a pleasant and brief conversation. Over the weekend, when we met again to chat about Ben-Hur, I was surprised he remembered our conversation from the "candy line," from more than eight months ago.

I've been a fan of Toby Kebbell's work for quite some time, since his performances as Joy Division manager Rob Gretton in Control and »

In the present day, Mama Winchester will be haunted by her fiery demise and “the ripple effects” of her death. For starters, it sent »

A major Supergirl cliffhanger has been resolved: Calista Flockhart will indeed return to the CBS CW series in Season 2 as Cat Grant. That’s the good news. The subpar news is that the actress will no longer be a series regular. Instead, she will recur as her schedule permits.

All eyes were on Clayton Brumby when he slowly walked onto the stage at his 14-year-old son Stephen's funeral in Sarasota, Florida, on July 9. His children yelled out "I love you dad" from the first row. Approximately 1,300 people packed the Bayside Community Church and intently listened to every word he spoke.

Interview: Philosopher King Mike Birbiglia of ‘Don’t Think Twice’

27 July 2016 8:42 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – When comedian/writer/director Mike Birbiglia is in his element, as during the interviews he conducted at The iO Theater in Chicago, he is relaxed and ardently philosophical. He has written and directed a new film, “Don’t Think Twice,” which is about a improvisation comedy troupe, but it’s also about life.

“Don’t Think Twice” – besides being a clever play on the famous Bob Dylan song title – is essentially about the stages of life, and how we react to our own ambitions. The members of the comedy troupe – portrayed by (clockwise in the picture below, starting top left) Mike Birbiglia, Kate Miccuci, Chris Gethard, Gillian Jacobs, Keegan-Michael Key and Tami Sagner – are at a crossroads in their professional and personal lives, and have to deal with the sudden uptick of fame to one of their members. As Birbiglia did with his first feature, ‘Sleepwalk with Me,’ he »

‘Don’t Think Twice’ Stars Gillian Jacobs and Kate Micucci On How to Maneuver The Wilds of Hollywood

22 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Give most any performer half a chance, and they’ll tell you how hard it is to be in show business. There’s the constant rejection, soul-crushing survival jobs and the unique hell of internet trolls. But Gillian Jacobs and Kate Micucci aren’t any performers. As they chiseled eccentric paths through the contemporary comedy landscape, both actresses have managed to keep their spirits high. And with the new showbiz dramedy “Don’t Think Twice,” the delightful duo finally had a chance to share the screen, much to our collective good fortune.

Written and directed by Mike Birbiglia, “Don’t Think Twice” centers on the improv The Commune. After years working together in a supportive and silly environment, the group and their dynamic are threatened as their comedy club is closing down, and one of their number gets a big break on a certain Saturday night sketch comedy show. Too »

There was a lot of debate over the vehicle Rick Grimes and co decided to use to get around during the zombie apocalypse – many people believe the show is set in 2003-4 which is when the comic was originally printed, but the car used is a 2011 model.

Happy Birthday Ray Harryhausen – Here are His Ten Best Films

29 June 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Sam Moffitt, and Tom Stockman

Special effects legend Ray Harryhausen, whose dazzling and innovative visual effects work on fantasy adventure films such as Jason And The Argonauts  and  The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad  passed away in 2013 at age 92. In 1933, the then-13-year-old Ray Harryhausen saw King Kong at a Hollywood theater and was inspired – not only by Kong, who was clearly not just a man in a gorilla suit, but also by the dinosaurs. He came out of the theatre “stunned and haunted. They looked absolutely lifelike … I wanted to know how it was done.” It was done by using stop-motion animation: jointed models filmed one frame at a time to simulate movement. Harryhausen was to become the prime exponent of the technique and its combination with live action. The influence of Harryhausen on film luminaries like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Peter Jackson, and »

Review: The ‘Game of Thrones’ ‘BastardBowl’ Brings About A Whole New World Order

Last Week’S Review: ‘Game of Thrones’ Keeps The Violence Off Screen As Battles Build

Every week this season, Indiewire will be bringing you a unique collection of viewpoints on “Game of Thrones,” as it is a show that elicits a unique sort of reactions. Our writers are well-versed in the world of the show and the culture surrounding it, and we look forward to seeing how their opinions fare in the cutthroat world of Westeros… Sorry, that is, the cutthroat world of television criticism.

What Happened This Week?

If you were thinking that this week’s episode would be nothing but epic battles, you were technically incorrect. That said, there were two important battlefield clashes in “The Battle of Bastards.”

First, Daenerys fought off slaver forces with both dragons and diplomacy, per the advice of Tyrion — because no one tells Daenerys that her reign is over. In fact, her reign has just begun, »

Donald Trump Turns 70: 'I Don't Want to Hear About It,' Says Birthday Boy Who Would Be Oldest U.S. President to Be Sworn In

14 June 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump rings in his 70th birthday on Tuesday, an occasion he will celebrate on the campaign trail with an evening rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. If his campaign succeeds, he will be the oldest person ever to be elected president in U.S. history. Ronald Reagan was inaugurated at age 69, just a few weeks shy of his 70th birthday. Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who will turn 69 on Oct. 26, would tie with Reagan as the oldest person ever to take office. She is however, the youngest of the last three candidates standing in the 2016 race. Her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders »

Today is Peter Cushing’s 103rd Birthday! Here Are His Ten Best Roles

26 May 2016 5:44 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Michael Haffner, Sam Moffitt, and Tom Stockman

Peter Cushing, born on this day in 1913, was one of the most respected and important actors in the horror and fantasy film genres. To his many fans, the British star, who died in 1994, was known as ‘The Gentle Man of Horror’ and is recognized for his work with Hammer Films which began in the late 1950’s, but he had numerous memorable roles outside of Hammer. A topnotch actor who was able to deliver superb performances on a consistent basis, Peter Cushing also had range.  He could play both the hero and the villain with ease.

Here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are Peter Cushing’s ten best roles:

Dr. Maitland

During the 1960s, Amicus Studios had a knack for borrowing from the pool of Hammer Studios actors and filmmakers to make their own Hammer-inspired films.  While »

Black Talks Predator, Long Kiss & Lethal Sequels

21 May 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Shane Black's "The Nice Guys" in cinemas this weekend, the filmmaker has been doing some more interviews about the film and has spoken about other projects of his - not just "The Predator" refresh but also some old films he penned treatments or scripts for that didn't take off. Here's the basics by film during his extended sessions with Happy Sad Confused Podcast:

The Predator

Black's not a fan of the way Fox was "just churning them out" in regards to the "Predator" and "Alien" sequels in the 1990s and early 2000s, as a result he hopes to get back to a big exciting event film with the new one:

"I think ideally we are endeavoring to get back to what [producers] Joel Silver and John Davis managed to pull off with [director] John McTiernan. Now that said, I don't wanna make it huge. It's not about 50 predators [running] over the mountain. »

New Girl Finale Recap: Leaving on a Jet Plane — Plus: Grade the Wedding!

10 May 2016 6:29 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We have a feeling onetime “Weekend Update” correspondent Stefon would have liked Tuesday’s New Girl finale — because, man, it had everything.

A wedding. An engagement. A break-up. An exchange of “I love you”s that was rudely interrupted by food poisoning. A conga line in the aisle of an airplane. Winston in the buff.

Over the course of two episodes, the Fox comedy brought each one of its central relationships into new, somewhat terrifying territory, before wrapping things up on a bittersweet note (thanks to an ill-timed hora). Herewith are the highlights from Tuesday’s two-part Season 5 sendoff:
