5 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Disney has released the first poster for The Finest Hours.

The trailer will debut Wednesday, July 8th at 9am Pdt at http://www.facebook.com/thefinesthoursmovie and watch it again during its broadcast debut on The Discovery Channel at 10Pm Edt / Pdt

A heroic action-thriller, The Finest Hours is the remarkable true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. Presented in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D, the film will transport audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale.

On February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern.

Prince Charming live-action Disney film in the works - but is it Snow White or Cinderella's prince?

20 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Disney is continuing its slate of live-action fairy tale adaptations with a movie focused on Prince Charming.

There's no word on whether the prince in question will be related to Snow White or Cinderella as yet, but the script apparently offers a "revisionist take on the fairy tales", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Matt Fogel has penned the script, alongside David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films, and Tripp Vinson in the producer seats. Alex Young will serve as executive producer.

The idea follows the success of the recent Cinderella live-action remake, as well as Maleficent.

Richard Madden played Prince Charming in Cinderella, while Chris Pine also took the part in Into the Woods.

Disney has several other live-action remakes in the pipeline too, including The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, Winnie the Pooh, Mulan, Pinnochio and more.

Chris Pine Is Deciding Between 2 Key Superhero Roles

6 July 2015 3:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

So it sounds solid that Star Trek lead and general handsome dude Chris Pine will join the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe. That.s been going around for a while. Aside from that, however, we don.t know exactly what role he.ll play, and it doesn.t sound like he does either, as according to a new report he is picking between two key parts. Birth.Movies.Death. reports that, according to one of their sources close to Pine, the 34-year-old actor is up for the parts of both Hal Jordan, better known to general audiences at the Green Lantern, and Steve Trevor, a love interest and substantial player in Wonder Woman.s story. Their informant says Pine.s up for Hal Jordan (it doesn.t say if there are also others in the running), while he has been offered Steve Trevor, though as of the other day, nothing official »

Is Chris Pine About To Choose Green Lantern Over Steve Trevor?

6 July 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s been a great deal of contention on the interwebs lately surrounding Chris Pine’s involvement in the DC Comics/Warner Bros. cinematic universe. General consensus seems to be that he’ll be involved somehow, but people are divided into two camps over what role he might be playing: Green Lantern Hal Jordan, or Wonder Woman love interest Steve Trevor.

Today, a new report from Birth.Movies.Death posits that neither side is entirely off-base, and that Pine was offered both roles but hasn’t yet made a decision. That would certainly explain why typically on-the-mark sites like Latino-Review and trades like Variety have been split down the middle. But with Comic-Con on the horizon, and WB purportedly keen to debut the whole Justice League in front of con-goers, he’s running out of time to pick a part.

Z For Zachariah Gets A New Release Date – In Theaters August 28

6 July 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Roadside Attractions has announced that director Craig Zobel’s  Z For Zachariah will now open in theaters August 28, 2015. The film stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie and Chris Pine.

Collider said in their Sundance 2015 review:

“After seeing Robbie in Z for Zachariah, I have no doubt she’s the real deal. She was good in The Wold of Wall Street, but her performance here displays her range as she shows us a woman who is reserved but also strong, and while An is certainly attractive, the movie makes sure that’s not her defining attribute. Ejiofor continues to give excellent performance, and this is Pine’s best dramatic work to date. They are the only three actors in the film, and they are all astounding in every scene as they perfectly match Zobel’s carefully crafted tone.”

In the not-distant future, a disastrous radioactive event has obliterated most of civilization. Yet »

'Green Lantern' Or 'Steve Trevor'; Which DC Cinematic Universe Role Will Chris Pine Choose?

6 July 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The trades recently reported that Chris Pine is in talks to join the cast of Wonder Woman as Steve Trevor. Since then however, a new report surfaced claiming that he's actually up for the role of Green Lantern, with Warner Bros. plotting to introduce him during their Hall H panel this weekend.  Well, Birth.Movies.Death have now weighed in on the news, and reveal that Pine is indeed up for the role of Hal Jordan. He has however also been offered the chance to play Steve Trevor, but still hasn't signed on officially to anything just yet, despite the studio wanting to introduce him at Comic-Con. Has the actor been offered a choice of who to play or are two different movies set in the DC Cinematic Universe fighting for his attention? Surely they're more organised than that? Well, the site adds that, "Pine is definitely leaning towards Green Lantern, »

Wonder Woman Plays a Super Important Role in 'Batman v Superman'

3 July 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It has long been rumored that, at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans will be introduced to the full Justice League, with Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) coming together with Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). While we'll likely have to wait until next March to find out if this is true or not, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Wonder Woman has a very important role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, teasing that she is the 'gateway drug" to the Justice League.

"She plays a super-important part. In a lot of ways, she's the gateway drug to &#8232the rest of the &#8232Justice League."

The highs and lows of the soft movie reboot

2 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This summer has seen Mad Max, Jurassic World and Terminator movies hit cinemas. Ryan looks at what’s good and bad about the soft reboot...

This piece contains mild spoilers for Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road and Terminator: Genisys

If the sequel was a late 20th century phenomenon, ushered into being thanks to the likes of James Bond, The Godfather and Planet Of The Apes, then the soft reboot is a peculiar product of the 21st.

Unlike a conventional remake or reboot, which often abandon characters, plots and settings in favour of an entirely new approach, the soft reboot is less drastic. Jj Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie is a prime example; it casts new actors in the roles of the Original Series’ famous roster of characters - Chris Pine replacing William Shatner as Kirk, Zachary Quinto replacing Leonard Nimoy as Spock, and so on - and sends them »

Here’s The Official Trailer, Poster For Netflix’s ‘Wet Hot American Summer’

2 July 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Fourth of July is just two days away, and Netflix is celebrating with some good-old American camping. The streaming platform released a poster and official trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp on July 2, 2015.

Netflix’s Wet Hot series takes place before the events of the 2001 movie by the same name (minus the First Day of Camp bit). The series’ official trailer reintroduces viewers to the beloved-but-wacky Camp Firewood counsellors, played by big-screen favorites like Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, and Elizabeth Banks. Plus, the Wet Hot trailer shows glimpses of new cast members, including Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, and Jon Hamm.

The poster for Wet Hot American Summer is a throwback to the original film’s art. All the cast members’ images, including those of the newcomers, are included, though in a slightly less cartoon-ish style than the Wet Hot film’s poster.

'Wet Hot American Summer' Reboot Trailer Features All-Star Cast

2 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

After teasing the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer reboot with a goofy, VHS-tinted teaser, Netflix has offered an official trailer with a hilarious, enticing look at the star-studded prequel series, First Day of Camp.

The clip begins with talk of blossoming summer love and fun, as well as an uncomfortable Camp Firewood meeting that's literally crashed by Paul Rudd's surly, too-cool counselor Andy. When chastised for being a week late, Andy replies: "Whatever. It smells weird. Who beefed?" (Notably, the counselor supervisor is played by H. Jon Benjamin, and with any luck, »

New Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp Trailer Online

2 July 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With the show arriving at the end of the month on Netflix, Wet Hot American Summer prequel First Day Of Camp has brought a full trailer online. And – joy! – it’s a thing of comedy beauty.While the movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981, the show, as you might be able to guess, takes place on the first. And despite the idea of the Camp Firewood ensemble largely playing teenagers being part of the joke, they all look pretty darned good. Talking of, pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni, H. Jon Benjamin (who is promoted from voicing a can of veggies in the film to appearing in the series, seen giving out the rules of camp “no dry humping. No necking. No wet humping…”) and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »

First Full 'Wet Hot American Summer' Trailer Is Glorious, Star-Studded Fun

2 July 2015 2:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

They're younger. They're hotter. They're wetter. They're more ... uh, American-er? Whatever, there's more of everything in the first full trailer for "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp," Netflix's prequel series to the 2001 cult comedy fave.

The teaser was VHS-styled fun, but this trailer is packed with actual footage from the series. It's also packed with a ton of stars - like, seriously, if you're a Hollywood actor and not in this show, you're probably experiencing major Fomo. The trailer even winks at the crazy "who's who" of their cast list, as the names keep rolling by - "also Kristen Wiig," "and also" Michael Cera, "plus" Josh Charles, "featuring" Chris Pine, and "introducing" Jon Hamm.

There's not much plot set-up. The trailer begins with the head counselors briefing the other counselors on the rules, but getting interrupted by Paul Rudd's arrival on a motorcycle. There are also glimpses at various camp relationships, »

30 June 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's official - the title for the third Star Trek will be Star Trek Beyond.

That title had been heavily rumoured in the press in recent weeks, but it was director Justin Lin who officially confirmed the Beyond tagline on Twitter on Monday (June 29).

Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond #Llap pic.twitter.com/VZh9YvJgqA

Justin Lin (@trailingjohnson) June 29, 2015

A picture of a revamped Starfleet uniform was accompanied by Lin's caption: "Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond #Llap."

The 'Llap' hashtage was a reference to the 'live long and prosper' mantra often spoken by Spock, who was played by the late Leonard Nimoy in the original series, and by both Zachary Quinto and Nimoy in the new films.

Little is known about the plot of Star Trek Beyond, other than that Idris Elba is reportedly succeeding Benedict Cumberbatch as its lead villain.
