Trevor Habberstad, X-Men and Doctor Strange Stuntman, Passes Away at 27

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hollywood community is in mourning once again, only this time, for a young man who passed far before his prime. Trevor Habberstad, a stuntman and stunt coordinator who most recently worked on X-Men: Apocalypse, Doctor Strange and Passengers, passed away on Sunday at the age of 27. The stuntman succumbed to a rare form of cancer. Trevor Habberstad was on a family vacation in Hawaii last year when he began to feel stomach pain that doctors initially thought was appendicitis, but after another evaluation, it was revealed that he actually had gastric cancer.

Jeff Habberstad, Trevor's father and a stuntman/stunt coordinator as well, told Khts News in their hometown of Santa Clarita, California that they just found out about a week and a half ago that the cancer had spread into the late stuntman's brain. Jeff Habberstad served as a stunt coordinator for director Bryan Singer on 2014's »

Cinema’s Greatest Manhunt Movies

20 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Manhunt movies have taken a shift over the years. Gone are the days of prohibition gangster heroism, liberating the common folk from the great depression with free flowing liquor. Times have changed and as Patriots Day shows us, heroes come in many forms and are often right under our noses.

Patriots Day exposes the stories of the everyday heroes involved in the manhunt for the Tsarnaev brothers following the devastating Boston Marathon attack in 2013. To celebrate the release of Peter Berg’s latest ‘based on true events’ film we’ve pulled together a list of the best manhunt movies currently at large.

Zero Dark Thirty

The exhausting hunt for Osama bin Laden was something the world was certainly aware of, but the cloak and dagger operation kept things under wraps until the evening of 1st May 2011 when in a seemingly sudden move, at least to the general population, bin Laden »

Joss Whedon talks about his rejected Wonder Woman movie

21 February 2017 12:53 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back before Joss Whedon hit the big time with his colossal Marvel hits The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, the director had his heart set on helming a Wonder Woman movie which Warner Bros. ultimately rejected.

One can’t imagine Whedon gets many projects rejected nowadays, considering the considerable success of his work on Marvel’s Avengers films, but this wasn’t always the case as back in the early 2000’s the director had his script for a Wonder Woman movie turned down, and Whedon recently spoke about the failed project during an interview with Empire Magazine.

“I worked really hard on that movie and it meant a lot [to me], but I don’t know if what I was trying to do would fit in with what [the studio’s] vision is. I had to take on the film that, well, nobody liked… We just saw different movies, and at the price range »

Four-Time Oscar Nominee ‘Hell Or High Water’ Is A Neo-Western With A Striking Political Edge — IndieWire On Demand

21 February 2017 11:18 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: Click here for more information about the indie films available from Movies on Demand.

You only have a couple days left to catch up on this year’s Oscar contenders, and fortunately four-time nominee “Hell or High Water” is already On Demand and well worth your time. The neo-Western is competing for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Film Editing and Best Original Screenplay this Sunday night and has been turning heads ever since its acclaimed debut at the Cannes Film Festival back in May.

Chris Pine and Ben Foster play two brothers who carry out a series of bank robberies in order to save their family ranch. Jeff Bridges is the old-school sheriff trying to bring them down. The relatively simply plotting is heightened by director David Mackenzie, whose tightly controlled direction brings tension to every heist, and screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, whose dialogue crackles with political »

A Look At DC’s Upcoming Movies For 2017 and Beyond

21 February 2017 7:14 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

2017 is looking to be quite the year for comic book movies, and in particular for DC and Warner Bros. who will finally kick off their stand-alone films featuring popular DC characters.

We have, of course, already seen Man Of Steel send Superman soaring back onto screens, which revived the franchise a few years ago, but now, following Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and then the DC villains movie Suicide Squad, both of which scored huge numbers at the box-office, the studio are throwing some of the lesser known characters into the mix.

First up is Wonder Woman, which will arrive in the summer of 2017. The film sees Gal Gadot reprise the role from Batman V Superman, and also sees Hollywood heavyweights Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Danny Huston join the cast. The film will be the first to feature a DC character that isn’t Superman or Batman in decades. »

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor Race

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor RaceThe 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor RaceAdriana Floridia2/21/2017 9:07:00 Am

The Best Supporting Actor Oscar is pretty much Mahershala Ali's to lose.

Despite that, this year's line-up of Best Supporting Actor nominees is incredibly strong, and anyone would be a worthy winner. However, Ali has won almost every award leading up to the Oscars, except for the Golden Globe which surprisingly went to Nocturnal Animals' Aaron Taylor Johnson (who wasn't even nominated for the Oscar). Moonlight is a major awards contender that right now looks like it's being outshone by La La Land. If Moonlight is guaranteed an Oscar in any category, it's this one.

We're breaking down the nominees for Best Supporting Actor below!

Mahershala Ali, Moonlight

2017 Oscar Previews: Part 1

20 February 2017 12:41 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 89th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 26th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself. 

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

David Thewlis reportedly playing Wonder Woman’s main villain

19 February 2017 5:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Spoilers for Wonder Woman follow…

We’ve seen a lot of marketing material for Gal Gadot’s upcoming solo DC movie Wonder Woman over the past few months, but so far Warner Bros. has done a pretty good job of keeping the film’s main antagonist under wraps.

That being said, a report in January suggested that the Amazon Princess will find herself battling Ares, the God of War – something that was supported by a first look at the action figure tie-in line, which includes an Ares Build-a-Figure.

Well, Batman-News is reporting that Ares is indeed the main villain, and that he’ll be portrayed by Harry Potter star David Thewlis, through a mixture of practical effects and CGI (which the site speculates may be the reason he’s been absent from the film’s trailers).

Thewlis’ casting was first announced by Warner Bros. back in November of 2015, but »

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Just as the Star Wars films has been a force to be reckoned with in the best visual effects category, the Star Trek films have done the same in the best makeup and hairstyling category. Over the course of Oscar history — or at least since the addition of this award — this sci-fi franchise has amassed four nominations in this category with one of those being a win and one being up in the air this year. Let’s take a look back and see if history can help us predict how Star Trek Beyond will perform.

Before jumping into the Star Trek goodness, let’s get a little background on the best makeup and hairstyling category, shall we? The category, which features multiple stages of nominating, was first present at the 1982 ceremony with a focus on makeup and didn’t »

‘La La Land’ Will Win Best Editing Oscar — Here’s Why

16 February 2017 12:50 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You’d think that the Oscar race for Best Editing would be very much in play. After all, “Arrival” and “La La Land” took the Ace Awards for drama and comedy, respectively, while “Hacksaw Ridge” won the BAFTA.

But given the audacity of Best Picture frontrunner “La La Land” and the fact that editor Tom Cross previously won the Oscar for Damien Chazelle’s “Whiplash,” the odds are with him again.

Still, with such a strong group of nominees, the craft awards could break unexpectedly. Each editor explores existential crises in different ways and creatively plays with time and space.

Here’s how the race is shaking out.

La La Land

With the bittersweet love story between Ryan Gosling’s Sebastian and Emma Stone’s Mia, Chazelle constructed a musical bridge between the past and the present — Hollywood as both dreamland and boulevard of broken dreams. It’s filled with flashbacks and fantasy sequences, »

Movie to Chronicle New England Patriots’ Super Bowl Comeback — But Who Will Play Tom Brady?

16 February 2017 11:07 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Are we really surprised that Tom Brady’s epic Super Bowl Li performance is being turned into a feature film? Of course not — the New England Patriots’ 34-28 win over the Atlanta Falcons was tailor-made for a classic Hollywood comeback flick.

What we’d like to know is who will be cast to portray Brady — star quarterback and, some argue, football’s G.O.A.T.

Deadline reports that a book and movie chronicling the Patriots’ win and centered on Brady, 39, is being written by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (both behind The Finest Hours and Patriots Day) with author »

Arnold Schwarzenegger rumored for a DC return with Wonder Woman role

13 February 2017 12:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Both DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins have randomly decided to follow Arnold Schwarzenegger on Twitter. Whether this is coincidental or not is up to readers, but generally when these things happen the end result pans out. For some perspective, Johns recently followed Matt Reeves, and shortly after the man got the job directing The Batman.

Given that the film has already been shot, the most likely scenario is that Schwarzenegger will be called in to do some voice work or motion capture regarding a probable monstrous physical transformation on the film’s primary villain, which is reportedly Ares.

Arnold does of course have previous DC experience, having played Mr. Freeze in 1997’s Batman & Robin. He will next be seen in the Darren Aronofsky-produced Aftermath [watch the trailer here], and has also been shooting the fantasy adventure Journey »

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger in Wonder Woman?

12 February 2017 1:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With less than five months left until Warner Bros. rolls out Wonder Woman, fans are waiting with bated breath for this highly-anticipated superhero adventure, starring Gal Gadot as the title character. In a surprising turn of events, it seems that there may be a new casting addition, with rumors spreading that Arnold Schwarzenegger may be cast in Wonder Woman. There is no confirmation that the actor has been cast, but the recent Twitter activity of both Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins and DC Films president Geoff Johns has some fans wondering if he's been cast in an unspecified role.

ComicBook.com reports that both Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns recently started following Arnold Schwarzenegger on Twitter, which fueled speculation that he was cast in a mystery role. The movie did undergo reshoots back in November for two weeks, so it's possible that he may have filmed his role then, but if that's the case, »

Saluting the Movie Heroes of 2016 That Were Snubbed by Oscars

9 February 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Academy Award winners are announced Feb. 26, about four-fifths of the contenders will go home empty-handed. Though they might feel bad for a while, they’ll always be identified as Oscar nominees. But what about all those people who turned in great work and didn’t even get that far?

As the long Oscar season winds down, let’s give a salute to a few un-nominated heroes of 2016. That list ranges from Clint Eastwood to Taraji P. Henson, from Pablo Larraín to Ralph Fiennes.

Take Stephen Frears. When “Florence Foster Jenkins” opened, there was appropriate buzz about the performances and the design work, but almost none fSor him. Frears takes tricky material and succeeds, but maybe he makes it look too easy.

In the four acting races, everyone nominated deserves to be there. But with only five slots, there are also other deserving people. Aside from Amy Adams in “Arrival, »
