'5th Wave' Trailer: A Countdown to Humanity's Extinction

29 January 2015 10:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For fans of the beloved Rick Yancey novel, today, January 29, marks exactly one year until the highly-anticipated The 5th Wave hits theaters. To kick off the countdown, Columbia Pictures has released a brief trailer, featuring tiny snippets of footage from the adaptation, which showcases the post-apocalyptic state the world has been left in. Sadly, we don't get our first look at star Chloe Moretz and Alex Roe, who play survivors Cassie Sullivan and Evan Walker, but perhaps we'll get the first footage soon, since production recently wrapped.

Aliens attack Earth in 5 waves, the 1st wave being a permanent blackout of power, setting earth back into the Stone Age. The 2nd wave being a massive tsunami, killing off all coastal cities. The 3rd wave being a plague caused by birds, leaving only the unlucky alive. The 4th wave being humans with activated alien brains. And what's The 5th Wave? Well that's »

Mark Millar talks Hit-Girl solo movie, Gareth Evans would have directed

29 January 2015 2:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mark Millar has been very busy of late, producing Matthew Vaughn’s new film Kingsman: The Secret Service, and being a creative consultant on The Fantastic Four reboot, both of which he spoke about exclusively to Flickering Myth last week during the UK junket for Kingsman. Now IGN has dug into another of Millar’s creations, Kick-Ass, and more specifically Hit-Girl. Rumours have previously circulated about a potential solo movie for the female ass-kicker and Millar has divulged some interesting information about the possibility of a spin-off film.

“Before ‘Kick-Ass 2‘ came out, we’d been talking about a Hit-Girl spin-off movie. We’d even talked to a director – we had a couple of calls with Gareth Evans, who I absolutely love. He’s an amazing director. But Gareth’s now busy.”

It’s certainly interesting to hear about that a Hit-Girl film was mooted before Kick-Ass 2 was released, »

Kick-Ass Almost Spun Off This Side Character For A Franchise

28 January 2015 3:28 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The comic book film adaptation, Kick-Ass was somewhat of a minor miracle when it was released back in 2010, since it managed to take an obscure cult favorite series and bring it somewhat faithfully to life on the big screen for a major wide release. It did.okay. Its 2013 sequel, however, would bring in a lot less than "okay." In a recent revelation, it seems that because of that poor performance, a planned spin-off film for the scene stealing fledgling femme fatale, Hit-Girl will never see the light of day. In an interview with IGN, Kick-Ass author Mark Millar, promoting his latest film project Kingsman: The Secret Service, has looked back lamentably at how the future that he planned for the Kick-Ass film franchise fell apart. There was evidently hope that the sequel could eventually land a feature spin-off for Chloe Moretz's Hit Girl. The comic writer said, "Before Kick-Ass 2 »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »

Trivia: A Hit-Girl Solo Movie Was Considered, Mark Millar Wanted ‘The Raid’ Director to Helm

28 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The most attention-getting character in the two Kick-Ass movies was definitely Hit-Girl, the foul-mouthed, utterly badass young fighter played by Chloe Moretz. We’ve probably seen the last of the Kick-Ass stories on the big screen, due to the middling performance of the second film and the fact that the series’ actors are quickly growing out […]

'Kick-Ass' Creator Mark Millar Says A Hit-Girl Solo Movie Was Once In The Works With 'The Raid' Director Gareth Evans

28 January 2015 6:18 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Sadly, I think I'm done with the character," Chloe Moretz said last summer about her future playing Hit-Girl following the disappointing box office results of "Kick-Ass 2" in 2013. "Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre." While the actress' swipe at piracy ignores the fact that the reception to the sequel was not as warm as the first, and no one was really asking for a sequel, it seems at one point that there was talk of extending the brand a bit further. Doing the rounds for "Kingsman: The Secret Service," "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar revealed that had things gone a different way, the series would've continued in an interesting direction. “Before 'Kick-Ass 2' came out, we’d »

The Director of The Raid Wanted to Make a Hit-girl Spinoff Movie

28 January 2015 6:04 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Gareth Evans has proven to be one of the most talented action movie directors that the world has to offer. He blew audiences away with The Raid movies, and his fans are eagerly waiting to see what his next film project will be. At one point in his career, though, he was a looking to direct a freakin' Kick-Ass spinoff film centering around Hit-Girl.  

While talking with IGN, comic book writer Mark Millar revealed that he had discussed a Hit-Girl spinoff film with the director, but unfortunately, due to his busy schedule it never happened. Here's what Millar said:

“Before Kick-Ass 2 came out we’d been talking about a Hit-Girl spin-off movie. We’d even talked to a director – we had a couple of calls with Gareth Evans, who I absolutely love. He’s an amazing director. But Gareth’s now busy.”

Mark Millar Reveals The Raid Director Was Interested In A Hit-girl Solo Film

27 January 2015 1:17 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last year, Chloë Grace Moretz said she was done playing Hit-Girl. I wonder if she would change her mind if Gareth Evans, who is best known for directing the action-packed movies The Raid and The Raid 2: Berandal, helmed a Hit-Girl solo film. In a recent interview Mark Millar revealed that at one time he had discussion with Evans about such a project. “Before Kick-Ass 2 came out we’d been talking about a Hit-Girl spin-off movie” Mark Millar told IGN. “We’d even talked to a director – we had a couple of calls with Gareth Evans, who I absolutely love. He’s an amazing director. But Gareth’s now busy. ” Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2.

The Equalizer DVD Review

26 January 2015 8:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Antoine Fuqua

Starring: Denzel Washington, Martin Csokas, Chloe Grace Moretz, David Harbour, Haley Bennett, Melissa Leo, Bill Pullman, Johnny Skourtis

Running Time: 126 minutes

Certificate: 15

Fuqua and Washington once again rejoin forces following their unforgettable collaboration on Training Day, for this reinterpretation of the classic TV show of the same name. Only this time Washington is playing Mr. Nice Guy. Many TV adaptations fail in the way they try and pay homage to the original, so it is with great joy we can say that Fuqua has no intention of trying to offer fan service. Although the spirit is very much alive, The Equalizer stands proud as an entirely separate entity.

Playing his calm and lovable self, Washington portrays Robert McCall, a man who lives a simple life free from nonsense or crippling responsibility. He’s far from the cold loner often associated with such films though, as we see »

DVD Review: 'The Equalizer'

26 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Despite The Equalizer (2014) reuniting director Antoine Fuqua and star Denzel Washington, Richard Wenk's lacklustre script - based on the 80s TV show - prompts little more than a disappointingly predictable display of bloodthirsty wrath and vengeance. In a disservice to the actor's gift for psychological complexity, Washington's usual wit and charisma are hidden beneath a wooden mask of vacuous discipline. When he isn't at his drab sales associate job, former black-op Robert McCall (Washington) geometrically arranges spoons at a Edward Hopperish diner. His only relief from loneliness a brief exchange over Old Man and the Sea with Teri (Chloe Grace Moretz).

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Casts New Actors for Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm

23 January 2015 1:15 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Late last week, Patrick Stewart appeared on Larry King's TV show and stated plainly that he and Ian McKellen would not be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse because the movie "is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance." This isn't terribly surprising, since the younger incarnations of their characters, as played by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, respectively, were much more the stars of  X-Men: Days of Future Past. And we already heard that a couple of other characters would return, recast with younger actors since the movie predominantly takes places in the 1980s. For the younger Jean Grey, previously played by Famke Janssen, Chloe Moretz, Hailee...

Bryan Singer just announced the actors we first told you about two weeks ago via his twitter account. They are...

Meet our new and brilliant young mutants: @Alexshipppp as #Storm @SophieT as #JeanGrey and @TyeSheridan as #Cyclops. #XmenApocalypse

Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) January 23, 2015

Happy New Year everyone! Good to be back on the fanboy grind.

Late last fall, the word got out that Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld were among the young ladies being eyed to play young Jean Grey in Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalypse, while Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet were under consideration for the role of young Cyclops.

Well, it looks like those names were preliminary because I got a new batch of names and these young folks are actually testing for the roles at this stage.

Producer Simon Kinberg has already stated that the film will bring in younger actors to play Cyclops, »
