“Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.
After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.”

There are about a million smart and clever ideas packed into the runtime of Drew Goddard's brilliant horror movie The Cabin in the Woods, but perhaps the film's greatest is the coffee mug water pipe. Used by Marty, the pot head character played by Fran Kranz, the plastic and metal container looks like a normal thermos, but in reality it actually extends like a telescope and has a detachable hollow handle that can be reinserted in the bottom. To own one of these thermos bongs would be to own the best possible prop replica from The Cabin In The Woods - and the best news of all is that fans will soon get their chance to purchase one. While there's no actual mention of The Cabin In The Woods on their website - perhaps just for legal reasons - the company Iron Man Designs LLC has revealed that they »
The slasher movie, if we'll admit it to ourselves, is about our fears of teen sexuality. Whether you're a teen made nervous by your own hormones or a parent afraid of what trouble those hormones will get your kid into, the slasher-movie villain is your fears made flesh. But with the release 30 years ago this week (November 9, 1984) of Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street," the slasher film entered a new dimension.
With the creation of Freddy Krueger (played indelibly by Robert Englund), who could kill teens in their dreams, the slasher villain proved there was no place that was safe, not even the subconscious.
In retrospect, the genre may have peaked with the release of this film; after all, how many other slasher villains since have been anywhere near as memorable? Unlike his predecessors, Jason Voorhees (of the "Friday the 13th" movies) and Michael Myers (of the "Halloween »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.
Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.
Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.
Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

Cabin in the Woods is one of my favourite films of the last few years (review) and many horror fans agree. Part of what makes Drew Goddard's film so special is how deeply it penetrates (gross, sorry) the history of horror and pay homage to some of our favorite films, tropes and monsters.
The video below calls attention to the many reference in the film. Is it "every reference" as it claims? You decide, but it's certainly a lot of them.
One thing I learned from the video is that there was a novelization. Did not know that one!

DC has played its cards. Marvel has played its cards. So what's Sony up to with its Spider-Man movie universe?
The deafening silence from Sony over the future of its planned Spider-Man movie universe is doing little to dampen down the rumour mill. The last we heard, the planned Venom movie was off the schedule, and the Sinister Six film - that Drew Goddard has been involved with - would introduce a new actor as Spider-Man. At this stage, it'd be a surprise to many if The Amazing Spider-Man 3 actually went ahead as originally planned.
Something else that was rumoured was that Sony would be the first out of the traps with a superhero movie headlined by a woman. The obvious choice, given that she was seeded in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is Black Cat. But while Sony has been making its mind up, both Marvel and DC have stolen its thunder. »
Out of the four studios concerned with comic book movie adaptations, it’s safe to say that Sony is not leading the charge. The studio’s rebooted Spider-Man franchise was ushered in too soon after Sam Raimi’s trilogy wrapped up, and it has suffered dire consequences as a result. If the material had worked and audiences’ interests were suitably piqued, Sony’s eagerness to reboot the webhead would have made no difference. But then The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit – and suffered an onslaught of critical derision, not to mention a dissatisfying box office return. Now, it seems Sony is attempting to beat a dead horse by reviving Spider-Man via an entirely new idea, under the title Glass Ceiling.
According to Badass Digest (via Collider), Sony is rumoured to be developing a new feature that will include a team of female Spider-Men. The idea first landed back in August, when »

Back in late 2012, it was looking like Steven Spielberg was readying a film adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's sci-fi novel "Robopocalypse" as his next directorial effort. Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods") was adapting the screenplay whilst the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw were onboard to star.
Then, early last year, it suddenly died. Spielberg officially postponed the project because the initial screenplay required heavy reworking and he wanted to find another way into the story. Talk about the film ceased and Spielberg dabbled with a few other ideas before hopping onto his current commitments to both "St. James Place" and "The Bfg".
At last report Spielberg is still developing it. Unfortunately, like many filmmakers from Guillermo del Toro to Ridley Scott, it is one of at least a half dozen projects the director is attached to and it's really a roll of the dice »

Nearly two years ago, Steven Spielberg was putting together the pieces for his next film, Robopocalypse. The adaptation of the Daniel H. Wilson sci-fi novel of the same name was to return the director to a large-scale tentpole-type picture, telling the story of a future where an artificial intelligence comes online and threatens a, well, robot apocalypse. Chris Hemsworth was set as the lead, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw were poised to co-star, Drew Goddard was writing the screenplay, and filming was set to begin in Spring 2013 until suddenly it all came to a halt. Spielberg decided to postpone the film indefinitely after coming up with “a better way to tell the story” that would necessitate heavy reworking of the screenplay. The filmmaker went on to flirt with American Sniper before committing to shooting two new films back-to-back (he’s filming the first one right now), so whatever happened to Robopocalypse? »

Steven Spielberg’s take on Daniel H. Wilson’s frankly brilliant novel, Robopocalypse, technically should have already hit screens by now. The anticipated robot-apocalypse (what, you didn’t get that from the title?) sci-fi tale was gearing up to head into production in 2012, with Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw all attached. And then… it sorta fell apart. But fear not, because now we have word from Wilson that all hope is not yet lost!
In an interview with Den Of Geek (via Film), the author shed light on what’s currently happening with the project. It turns out there’s still no definitive change since the entire film was returned to the development docket back in January 2013 – but it’s not been wiped entirely from Spielberg’s radar:
It’s basically in the queue as far as I know. You know, Spielberg has other movies that he’s directing right now. »

What’s up with the Steven Spielberg film Robopocalypse? At one point it was all set to be his next film, but that was back in 2012. The script was being developed by Spielberg and Drew Goddard as Daniel H. Wilson wrote his novel. Actors such as Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw were all […]

Steven Spielberg is well-known for taking a lot of time with many of his projects and Robopocalypse is clearly no exception. We have been hearing about the movie, anxiously waiting for it to come to fruition for years. The adaptation of the Daniel H. Wilson sci-fi novel at one point had Chris Hemsworth set to star with Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw. Drew Goddard was even writing the screenplay until spring of 2013 when Spielberg put it all on hold saying “We found that the film was »

(Cbr) The jam-packed cast of Ridley Scott’s space thriller "The Martian" has added three more actors, Entertainment Weekly reports: Sebastian Stan ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 Years a Slave") and Mackenzie Davis ("Halt and Catch Fire"). The film, which begins production next month in Budapest, already stars Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Sean Bean and Michael Pena. Based on Andy Weir’s novel of the same name, "The Martian" centers on an astronaut (Damon) stranded on Mars when his crew departs for Earth without him. Scott called the story, which was adapted by Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods"), “quintessential Robinson Crusoe.” Producer Simon Kinberg ("X-Men: Days of Future Past") called the project a labor of love, noting that every star involved is doing the film for “significantly less than their normal fee.” "The Martian" is expected in theaters in »

Davis was previously reported to be in negotiations for the movie.
Sean Bean was most recently announced for the project.
The Martian will begin filming in November in Budapest. »
Chiwetel Ejiofor, who was nominated for an Oscar this past year for his role in 12 Years a Slave has joined the cast of The Martian, Ridley Scott’s adaptation of the Andy Weir novel. Ejiofor will play Venkat Kapoor, the director of the Mars mission in the film.
The Martian is set for release on November 27th, 2015. Ridley Scott is directing from a script by Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard. The cast includes Matt Damon, Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Michael Pena, Sean Bean and Kristen Wiig.

After Drew Goddard dropped out of the director's chair for The Martian, it looked like there was going to be trouble with getting Andy Weir's hot novel off of the ground. But with Fox making the film a priority, and Ridley Scott in the right place at the right time, the project turned itself around and started heading in the right direction. Now The Martian seems unstoppable, as it's not only secured Matt Damon a good long while ago, it's been quietly building up its ranks in the past month or so, with Oscar nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor among the recent additions to the cast. What follows is a list of the big time stars that are on board to star in The Martian, which follows an extremely crafty astronaut whose crew leaves him behind on the red planet after a dust storm cuts their mission short. With survival as »
Sebastian Stan ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 Years a Slave") and Mackenzie Davis ("Halt and Catch Fire") have joined the cast of Ridley Scott's sci-fi thriller "The Martian" at 20th Century Fox.
Matt Damon plays an American astronaut stranded on Mars after the rest of the crew members believe he is dead. He must struggle to survive until Nasa can launch a rescue mission to bring him back home.
- Garth Franklin
For a film that primarily focuses on an astronaut (Matt Damon) who is stranded in a colony on Mars and struggles to survive, hoping he can last long enough for Nasa to organize a rescue mission, there sure seems to be a lot of supporting cast members signing on to The Martian. Director Ridley Scott is at the helm of the film written by Cabin in the Woods scribe Drew Goddard, which starts shooting next month, and EW has learned three more names have just joined the film. Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Mackenzie Davis (That Awkward Moment) are on board. No word on who the three new cast members will be playing, but there have already been a lot of Nasa personnel cast with Sean Bean recently taking the role of a Nasa flight director and Jeff Daniels as the director »
