The Least Profitable Films Of The Year Prove The Star Is Dead

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway argues that big name film stars alone are no longer a guarantee of box office return…

This week the least profitable films of the year were announced, with films starring household names such as Chris Hemsworth, Bill Murray and Sean Penn all appearing in movies that made the list.

At first glance, it might seem unusual that such big names would appear in a list of the least profitable films of the year. Really looking at it though, and looking at their respective filmographies, it shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Bill Murray has the dubious honour of not only starring in Rock The Kasbah, the film that appears at the top (or bottom depending on your point of view) but also appearing in Cameron Crowe’s much derided Aloha, which appears at number 9 in the list. With a budget of $15 million, a box office of »

Captain America: Civil War in-depth trailer analysis

18 hours ago | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The long-awaited first trailer for Captain America: Civil War came out on Wednesday, and its level of awesome is only matched by its level of melancholy. (To quote from Doctor Who, “I like being sad. It's happy for deep people.”) As such, it arguably calls to mind the much-maligned sixth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

This may seem like an unusual comparison; after all, Joss Whedon's contract with Marvel finished after Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the trailer doesn't share of the key features of Buffy Season 6, such as its generally underrated nature, or its sense of humour. Also, there's no musical episode (unless you count the Marvel DubSmash War, that is).

However, as hinted at by the Ant-Man end credits scene teasing Captain America: Civil War (a similar scene to which starts off the trailer), Captain America: Civil War (or the trailer at least, and presumably the »

Stellan Skarsgård Talks Potential 'Erik Selvig' Return In Thor: Ragnarok

28 November 2015 8:55 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Even when the God of Thunder was fighting alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Odinson has always received aid from Stellan Skarsgård’s scientist Erik Selvig in some capacity. And given the Swedish actor has appeared in all of the Thor and Avengers movies so far, Digital Spy recently asked Skarsgård whether or not he’ll reprise the supporting role in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.   “They have an option on me,” said Stellan Skarsgård of his multi-picture deal with Marvel Studios. “I don't know what decisions they'll make, but they have an option on me for the next Thor movie.” When asked what it’s like being a part of an ever-growing cinematic universe, the actor recalled a scene he shot for Thor: The Dark World. “When you're standing naked at Stonehenge, you don't think of the enormousness of the universe you're in,” he said. “You think of »

You Might Not Believe Us, but This Is Actually a Photo of Chris Hemsworth

27 November 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

A photo posted by Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth) on Nov 22, 2015 at 1:56pm Pst It's no secret that Chris Hemsworth is insanely handsome, but while he usually stops us dead in our tracks with hot red carpet appearances and adorable moments with his kids, it was his latest Instagram photo that really caught our eye. Chris, who had to seriously slim down to play a 19th-century sailor in his new movie In the Heart of the Sea, shared a behind-the-scenes snapshot with his fans on Sunday.

See the shocking photo above, and then check out 32 times he was ridiculously sexy. »

Ridley Scott confirms 'Alien: Covenant' details

27 November 2015 9:49 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Michael Fassbender to play two roles in upcoming sci-fi, Australian government to build on incentives.

Ridley Scott will shoot at least one of his potential Alien origins trilogy in Australia.

Scott is currently in Australia scouting locations for the first of his Prometheus sequels, Alien: Covenant, which will shoot for 16 weeks at Sydney’s Fox Studios Australia facility in March 2016.

The director provided new details about the film at a press conference held at the studio on Friday November 27, where he spoke alongside state and federal politicians, including Australia’s foreign minister, Julie Bishop MP.

Scott explained that Covenant will pick up the sci-fi storyline where 2012’s Prometheus ended, and is the first of a trilogy that will connect directly with his original Alien.

Prometheus 1 was borne out of my frustration with Alien 1,” he said.

“I never did any more because I don’t normally do sequels but I was amazed with the three that followed, no one »

Tom Holland Weighs In On Following Andrew Garfield As Spider-Man

25 November 2015 7:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Andrew Garfield was unceremoniously dropped from The Amazing Spider-Man franchise when Sony scrapped plans for two more instalments and a Sinister Six spinoff that the British actor was also set to star in. Now, it’s up to In the Heart of the Sea star Tom Holland to carry the mantle and give fans the version of Spider-Man they’ve always wanted to see. Needless to say, the youngster is no doubt feeling the pressure, and had this to say recently about how it feels to be following in the footsteps of Garfield.

“I haven’t [met him], but I’m a huge fan of Andrew and he’s said some lovely things about me in the press the other day. He did such a good job as Peter Parker and it’s really difficult not to copy him because what he did was so perfect and obviously there are going to »

How Spider-Man Is Different From The Other Heroes In Captain America: Civil War

25 November 2015 6:41 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Last night Marvel almost made the internet explode when they dropped the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. One character who we know will be in the movie, but who didn.t show up in the first look (unless you believe some dubious rumors making the rounds), is Spider-Man. We.re looking forward to Wall Crawler.s first McU appearance for a number of reasons, but one is because he represents something different his fellow superheroes. Tom Holland, who plays the new Web Slinger, broke down one reason why he stands apart from his fellows: his secret identity. In the process of pumping up his upcoming whaling adventure, In the Heart of the Sea, in which he co-stars with the McU.s Thor, Chris Hemsworth, Holland spoke to Super Hero Hype. As you can imagine, the subject of Spidey comes up with great regularity, and he talked about how »

‘The Myth of Moby Dick’ featurette for In the Heart of the Sea

25 November 2015 6:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we got seven clips from director Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea [watch them here], and now Warner Bros. has debuted a new featurette for the film entitled ‘The Myth of Moby Dick’. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

See Also: Chris Hemsworth is shockingly emaciated for In the Heart of the Sea

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, »

Chris Hemsworth wants Guardians of the Galaxy-esque humour for Thor: Ragnarok

25 November 2015 3:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Cinema Blend to promote his upcoming film In the Heart of the Sea, Chris Hemsworth spoke briefly about his next outing as the God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok, stating that he’d like to see an injection of Guardians of the Galaxy-esque humour into the threequel.

“I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians of the Galaxy. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know? I feel we had less of the sort of the naivety or fun or humor that the first [Thor] might have had. I wish we had more of that in the second [movie] … We’ve done regal. We’ve done Shakespeare, and we’ve shown that. I think now it’s time to go, »

Bill Murray, Sean Penn and Chris Hemsworth lead 2015’s box office flops

25 November 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

They may be some of Hollywood’s biggest male stars but the likes of Bill Murray, Sean Penn, Chris Hemsworth and Zac Efron also led this year’s biggest box office flops.

Forbes has published its list of 2015’s least profitable films. The rankings are based on global ticket sales for wide releases up to November against their estimated production costs (excluding marketing, which can run into tens of millions of dollars for blockbusters).

Using those figures, Rock the Kasbah receives the unwelcome honour of offering the lowest returns. The ensemble cast of Bill Murray, Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel failed to entice audiences, who were either put off by the premise or the scathing reviews. Despite the relatively cheap price tag of $15 million, Rock the Kasbah had only made $2.9 million till November 18th.

Taking second place is Sean Penn’s shoot ’em up thriller The Gunman, which recouped just »

Tom Holland Briefly Talks 'Spider-Man'

25 November 2015 5:20 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

iGN recently interviewed actor Tom Holland at a press event for his latest film “In the Heart of the Sea”, directed by Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth (“Rush”), Cillian Murphy (“Inception”), Ben Whishaw (“Spectre”), Brendan Gleeson (“Braveheart”), and Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”). Holland has been cast as the new Spider-Man who will make his first live-action appearance in next year’s Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War”; Holland is also set to star in a solo “Spider-Man” film directed by Jon Watts (“Cop Car”).

When asked about his take on the character, Holland said:

“It's very daunting, because obviously the first two guys were so great and they did such fantastic performances, so I've got quite a lot to follow.  I think I'll have the help from the rest of the Marvel Universe and what's quite exciting is when you read these comics that he's in, he »

Chris Hemsworth Says 'Thor: Ragnarok' Needs 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Humor

25 November 2015 5:20 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you aren't a fan of the humor Marvel tends to insert into their comic book movies, then you'll hate what Chris Hemsworth shared on how he feels about the upcoming threequel, "Thor: Ragnarok." The actor was recently interviewed and felt it wise to share just what type of atmosphere the movie should have, and settled by saying it should have humor like that of the 2014 blockbuster "Guardians of The Galaxy."

"I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians [Of The Galaxy]. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know?"

Of course I doubt this is what many fans would hope or want, with some even saying there was to much humor in the second installment into the Thor series, but »

The DC TV/Film Division Split Explained

24 November 2015 6:12 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the biggest differences between Marvel and DC's approach to television has been that of how the properties are linked. Marvel has opted to include all its film and TV properties as part of the same cinematic universe, whereas DC is not only keeping its film and TV worlds separate but allowing the TV properties to go off into either their individual or combined universes.

The biggest difference is this allows multiple versions of the same DC character to appear at any one time - from both Grant Gustin and Ezra Miller playing the small and big screen versions of The Flash respectively, to a show like "Gotham" having essentially free reign to develop whatever villains they want. If Marvel's "Daredevil" wants to use Thor, they'll need Chris Hemsworth to cameo in the role.

That choice was one of Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara. Variety has done a feature »
