Fast & Furious 7 Shifts Release Date Up One Week

2 July 2014 6:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the lack of competition on its previous release date, Universal announced today that it would be moving the release date for Fast & Furious 7 up one week from April 10th of next year to Easter weekend. On paper, the main reason for the move would appear to be so that the tentpole has one more week to dominate in theaters before another likely heavyweight - Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 – enters the box office arena.

Fast & Furious 7 will continue the blockbuster series, again focusing on ex-con Dom Torretto (Vin Diesel) and his team. This time around, when Ian Shaw (franchise newbie Jason Statham) comes looking for revenge after the death of his maniacal brother Owen (Luke Evans) in Fast & Furious 6, the team is forced to defend itself. And after Han (Sung Kang) is killed by Ian in Tokyo, the team goes on the warpath. Dwayne “The R0ck” Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, »

New Trailer for Dracula Untold Released

1 July 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The new trailer for the new action-adventure film Dracula Untold from director Gary Shore debuted last week. Dracula Untold is the origin story of the man who became Dracula. It seems that Dracula has been recast as a tragic anti-hero. While that may take a while to get used to, the trailer looks entertaining enough and maybe this could be the super hero film everyone hoped Man of Steel was going to be. The film stars Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Diarmaid Murtagh, and Dominic Cooper.

Meme: Luke Evans Dons Leather Pants As Dracula, Matt McGorry Tweets #NoHomo From NYC Pride Float, Tim Cook Attends Sf Pride

The UK has a sperm shortage, Constantine can’t smoke on TV, catching up with the Queer As Folk cast

While most reports say that the cast of Orange Is the New Black owned NYC Pride on their float, the sexy Matt McGorry is under fire for tweeting about it with a #NoHomo hashtag, and caught the appropriate amount of crap for it. McGorry says that it was a joke and the fact that he’s on a Pride float should make that obvious. All may be forgiven as a fan tweeted at him that he should tweet nudes to make up for it, and McGorry responded “Fair is fair.”

There is a sperm shortage in the UK. I’m not claiming that UK men are less virile, but they aren’t sharing what they’ve got with sperm banks thanks to a law that allows the offspring to learn »

Watch: First ‘Dracula Untold’ Trailer Adds Action to Vampire Mythology

29 June 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While there has been plenty of portrayals of Dracula in the media, Universal’s upcoming “Dracula Untold” aims to shed some new light on the tale — with the help of a lot of action.

The first trailer for the movie hit the web this weekend. Luke Evans stars as Vlad Tepes. While he is very powerful in human form, he becomes a vampire to protect his family after a stronger threat is posed by a greedy Turkish sultan, played by Dominic Cooper.

The ancient vampire who helps Tepes undergo his transformation is played by Charles Dance, who portrays Tywin Lannister on “Game of Thrones.” Even “Thrones” fans may not notice the actor at first, as he’s almost unrecognizable in the clip.

Lorde provides the eerie soundtrack with her cover of Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” a song recorded for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”

First Trailer for Dracula Untold Released Starring The Hobbit’s Luke Evans

28 June 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Like a lot of iconic movie monsters, Dracula has had a rough time of it over recent years, with one of his most recent live-action adaptations – the NBC television series which starred Jonathan Rhys Meyers – lasting only a single season before being cancelled due to low ratings and a tepid critical response.

Perhaps then it’s for the best that Dracula Untold is taking the vampire back to basics as it strives to deliver a very different take on his early years. In this movie, the focus will be on Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) as he strikes a deal a deal with dark forces in order to protect his family and protect his homeland.

Will we see his descent into the blood sucking villain that we all know so well from previous movies, or could the studio be looking at Dracula Untold as the first in a series of movies exploring Dracula’s early years? »

Watch: ‘Dracula Untold’ 1st Trailer Wants To Rule The World

28 June 2014 1:14 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bram Stoker’s Dracula creation has been a popular staple of all fiction mediums since the journal-style novel was first released over a hundred years ago in 1897. The iconic role has been portrayed by a vast range of actors in that time including Gary Oldman, Gerard Butler, Leslie Neilson, Bela Lugosi and, of course, Christopher Lee.

With the exception of Oldman’s portrayal of the Count, most incarnations have had the character as a heartless and remorseless monster; new film Dracula Untold hopes to give a new spin. Luke Evans, star of The Hobbit, plays Vlad Tepes a mighty warrior who makes a pact with darkness so that he can save his family. The film is released in October, just in time for Halloween, and has released it’s first trailer, see below:
