Lily James, Richard Madden Enchant at Premiere of Disney’s Live-Action ‘Cinderella’

2 March 2015 8:44 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was a fairytale sprung to life for the pint-sized guests at Sunday evening’s premiere of Disney’s “Cinderella” held at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre.

Under a giant tent set up to keep out the rain, a bevy of fanciful attractions were arranged to enchant the crowd of plucky youngsters — many of whom were decked out in Cinderella costumes — and their celebrity parents, including a crafts table with glitter and glass slipper stamps, a manicure station featuring nail princess-inspired polish colors by Morgan, a photo booth sponsored by Jc Penney and juggling court jesters roaming the red carpet on stilts. Guests were also treated to a supper buffet of such kid-friendly edibles as macaroni and cheese, penne pasta, kale salad with goat cheese and pretzels dipped in chocolate and candied sprinkles.

“Cinderella” stars Lily James, in a silvery-blue Elie Saab Haute Couture gown, Cate Blanchett, who plays the wicked Stepmother, »

John Ottman Confirmed To Return As X-men: Apocalypse Composer

26 February 2015 11:59 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  If you liked the scores of X-Men 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past, then you'll love X-Men: Apocalypse next year as it has been confirmed by Film Music Reporter that John Ottman has officially signed up to return for the movie. Some fans preferred Henry Jackman's take on the mutant characters in X-Men: First Class, but Ottman's work in last year's "inbetweenquel" was still great. For those of you needing a reminder, this one will star Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Rose Byrne, and franchise newcomers Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, and Ben Hardy. Bryan Singer will direct and Simon Kinberg is writing. X-Men: Apocalypse is set to be released on May 27th, 2016.  »

The Fantastic Four Reboot Will Copy Steven Spielberg In This Way

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Regardless of whether they actually plan to do so or not, at some point every director who sets off to make a big-budgeted blockbuster ends up copying Steven Spielberg. It just has to happen. That.s because the bearded wonder has done so much behind the camera in this genre that you can.t help but pay homage to his efforts in some fashion. And The Fantastic Four.s Josh Trank has now come out and admitted that his goal from the first reel of the upcoming reboot is to emulate the "dark" tone of an "Amblin movie," the studio that Spielberg founded back in 1981 with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. Trank made these comments during an interview with Empire, where he was also joined by The Fantastic Four.s writer and producer Simon Kinberg. Kinberg added to these remarks by saying that The Fantastic Four will look to emulate »

Four New "Fantastic Four" Reboot Photos

26 February 2015 5:43 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A couple of new photos from Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" have gone online, each one featuring one of the film's main stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell. The shots come from Empire magazine who also spoke with Trank and writer/producer Simon Kinberg about the upcoming and decidedly more science-fiction oriented take on the material.

Trank labels it a distinctly less cartoonish approach and a "dark Amblin" movie with Kinberg adding: "there was an Amblin-style approach to the characterisation, and to contextualising everything in a real world."

Trank also says: "The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish. It's just not something that me and Simon (Kinberg) are interested in as storytellers. There's the opportunity to make something that is challenging and tragic and dramatic. The »

Exclusive: Four New Fantastic Four Stills Arrive

25 February 2015 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Chronicle director Josh Trank has made a Fantastic Four movie - but not one like the Chris Evans 'n' Jessica Alba version you may remember. This one has Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell in it, for starters, and what's more, it's distinctly less "cartoonish", to quote the director himself. For proof, here are some stills from the upcoming film, straight from the new issue of Empire, on shelves today.A key difference in this superhero reboot lies in the origins of the characters' powers. In the original Stan Lee/Jack Kirby iteration of the Fantastic Four, the team gains their powers by travelling into space, where they’re bombarded with DNA-altering cosmic rays. But Trank’s film draws more heavily on the Ultimate Fantastic Four, which abandoned space flight in favour of inter-dimensional travel.Speaking to Empire for the new issue, Trank explains that the »

Director Neill Blomkamp's Chappie marks the acting debuts of South African rappers Ninja and Yo-landi Visser from the group Die Antwoord.

Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings - some good, some bad - and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there's one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever. »
