Listen To Portishead’s ‘Sos’ Cover From High-rise Movie Soundtrack

23 June 2016 5:46 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Playing now in theatres, on Demand, on Amazon Video and on iTunes, watch Portishead’s music video cover of Abba’s ‘Sos’ as heard in High-rise.

High-rise is the latest film by cult British director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, A Field in England), an ambitious adaptation of the J.G. Ballard novel of the same name.

The film stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss.

High-rise stars Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class.

Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building’s eccentric tenants: Charlotte (Miller), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Evans), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Moss); and Mr. Royal (Irons), the enigmatic architect who designed the building.

Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. »

Dwayne Johnson Wanted as The Wolf Man?

22 June 2016 6:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Universal Pictures started their Monster Universe a few years ago, there had been talk of several different classic projects getting rebooted. Dracula Untold became the first installment in this franchise, after a post-credit scene featured Luke Evans' title character showed him emerging in present day. The Mummy reboot will be next out of the gate, hitting theaters next June. But we aren't sure which project is moving forward next. Today we have word that the studio wants Dwayne Johnson to star in their modern update of The Wolf Man.

Buried within Deadline's report about Dwayne Johnson setting up another project at Sony entitled Son of Shaolin, the site claims there are "persistent rumors" that Universal wants the actor to portray the title character, although it isn't clear when that project may get off the ground. If it's far enough down the line, it's possible that Dwayne Johnson may »

'The Crow' Remake Still Happening?

15 June 2016 8:22 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

That's right, the story of the twenty-year battle to remake The Crow hasn't reached its end yet. This is a film that's been a revolving door of talent. On the long list of actors who took up the lead of this film at one point or another are Luke Evans, Tom Hiddleston, Bradley Cooper, and Jack Huston. The movie has also had a good handful of directors enter and exit the project over the course of its failed development.

The latest of these directors was Corin Hardy, who was reportedly fired from the project in March of this year. This led to legal action taken by the film's producer Ed Pressman, who gave Relativity rights to sequels, and by firing Hardy without his consultation, they had supposedly violated their agreement. There's been no real word since March about this legal battle.

Now, in a throwaway line from a recent Deadline report, »

14 June 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Based on J.G. Ballard’s brilliant novel of the same name, Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise stars Tom Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, who discovers a new way of life after moving into a skyscraper packed with peculiar characters. If you missed High-Rise in theaters, don’t despair, because Magnolia Home Entertainment will give the film a Blu-ray / DVD release this summer.

High-Rise is scheduled to come out on Blu-ray and DVD on August 2nd. Special features and official cover art have yet to be revealed, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. In case you missed it, check out Heather’s review of Ben Wheatley’s latest film:

http://dailydead.com/review-high-rise-effectively-proves-that-humanitys-greatest-threat-will-always-be-itself/

Synopsis: “High-rise stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class. Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building’s eccentric tenants: Charlotte (Golden Globe® nominee Sienna Miller, American Sniper), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Luke Evans, Beauty and the Beast), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss, “Mad Men”); and Mr. Royal (Academy Award® winner Jeremy Irons, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), the enigmatic architect who designed the building. Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.”

Gugu Mbatha-Raw Teases New ''Magical'' Beauty and the Beast Movie

9 June 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We cannot wait to see what Disney does with their new live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. The much buzzed about production, directed by Chicago director Bill Condon, stars Emma Watson as Belle, Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston and Josh Gad as Le Fou. The star-studded cast also includes Ewan McGregor, Sir Ian McKellan, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci and so many more. Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Plumette. "I do [sing]. It's so exciting," Mbatha-Raw told me while promoting the new Civil War drama Free State of Jones (in theaters on June 23), adding, "A lot of my character is animated so I was only on set a couple of days. But, they were magical days. I mean, we »

Tom Hiddleston Closing In On Bond?

27 May 2016 1:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

He's been rumored for so long now that it won't be truly official until Eon and MGM make an announcement or issue a press release. Even so, more and more evidence is building that Tom Hiddleston is being lined up to take on the role of James Bond.

Birth Movies Death today reports that the actor is in 'advanced negotiations' to play the British super spy, citing "sources close to" the actor himself. Hiddleston has not been shy about actually wanting to play the role, but with comments indicating that there's no preliminary movement on the next film in the franchise planned until the end of the year at the earliest, all this could easily just be what's dubbed "negotiating in the press".

Rumors of Daniel Craig's recasting have hit fever pitch in recent months with Hiddleston seemingly cited every other day while the likes of Idris Elba, Aidan Turner, »

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast teaser trailer breaks record for most views in 24 hours

26 May 2016 1:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Disney has another sure-fire hit on its hands with Beauty and the Beast, with this week’s first teaser trailer for the upcoming live-action adaptation setting a new record for the most views in 24 hours.

Following its debut on Good Morning America, the trailer racked up 91.8 million views in its first day, smashing the previous record of 88 million views set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens and also outpacing Marvel’s big offerings Captain America: Civil War (61 million) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (34 million).

It should be noted that the figures only include teaser trailers, and the record for the most viewed trailer still belongs to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with its October trailer last year generating a whopping 128 million views in 24 hours.

Beauty and the Beast Breaks Force Awakens Trailer View Record

24 May 2016 5:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, Disney and LucasFilm unveiled the second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, during Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim. The online release of this highly-anticipated footage set a new record, with 88 million views within the first 24 hours of release. Some thought that record wouldn't fall until perhaps the first footage from Star Wars: Episode VIII was released, but today we have word that this record has fallen, by another upcoming Disney movie. Yesterday, the first teaser for Beauty and the Beast debuted, which was viewed a record 91.8 million times.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the live-action Beauty and the Beast footage broke the record for the most-viewed "teaser" within the first 24 hours. The 91.8 million mark bested the April teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first teaser for Captain America: Civil War (61 million views) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (31 million). Still, another trailer record set by »

Beauty And The Beast Teaser Trailer Sucks You In… Really Just With Voices

24 May 2016 8:27 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

So, you’re Disney, you have a property that’s made you kajillions of dollars already, and the related toy/park merchandise sales aren’t exactly dropping off, but you think you can throw out something else that will make you tons more money… might want to jump on that one, right?

The animated Beauty and the Beast was rather a while ago in cinematic terms, and while you can put out a new edition of the Blu-Ray every couple of years, there’s nothing like getting things fresh in people’s minds again. Plus, you could get a lot of big names involved, and your test run, Into the Woods, did even better than you hoped.

Oh sure, it’s probably actually going to be a good movie, and that’s even more likely when you know that Bill Condon is directing, but there’s just got to be »

Bill Condon's the right director of 'Beauty and the Beast' for one major reason

23 May 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bill Condon was an inspired choice by Disney for the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. After all, there are few people I know who have a more exhaustive knowledge of musicals, both onscreen and on the stage, and he takes the form seriously. He isn’t afraid to call the sacred cows out when he disagrees, and he cares deeply about how these properties are adapted to the bigscreen. When he was working on Dreamgirls, he was incredibly happy, and there’s a joy to that filmmaking as well as a knowledge of the way musicals typically do or don’t work onscreen. Disney’s committed to turning every animated film they’ve ever made into a live-action film, although I’m not sure how you define that term anymore. Is Alice Through The Looking Glass a live-action film? Is Pete’s Dragon a live-action film? Is Warcraft a live-action film? »

Due out next March 17, Disney looks to continue their run of wild success when it comes to live-action adaptations of their popular classics by sending out a new version of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast.  The first teaser has just hit, and while it doesn't give us a look at the Beast or a few of the story's other colorful and memorable characters (like Lumiere, played by Ewan McGregor, or Gaston, played by Luke Evans), we do get to glimpse Belle as well as hear a tiny bit of that classic music. Check it out. Obviously they're holding back a lot here, including looks at many of the characters.

First Beauty and the Beast Live-Action Trailer Has Arrived

23 May 2016 6:22 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

This morning sees the debut of the Beauty and the Beast live-action teaser trailer, and...well, it's something.  Come inside to check it out! 

While I'm not the biggest fairy tale movie fan (not even a little bit), I can't deny that Disney's live-action retelling of their classic stories have been impressively handled.  As such, I've found myself more interested in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast adaptation than I would have thought.  So it's a bummer that this first teaser doesn't give us much to work with: 

I'm not saying it's a bad trailer.  I can't.  The truth is, there doesn't seem to be enough here to judge whether or not it's good or bad as a trailer.  The sets look great, and the music is neat, of course, but eager fans see next to nothing.  I get why we wouldn't see the Beast just yet.  Being that he'll »
