HBO’s Lgbt History: True Detective (2014-)

6 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's the penultimate episode as Manuel has worked his way through all the Lgbt-themed HBO productions. 

Last week we looked at Nightingale starring David Oyelowo, a film you should definitely seek out if you want further proof that Oyelowo is one of the best actors working right now. This week, the latest Lgbt character to be introduced into the HBO canon: Officer Paul Woodrugh from True Detective’s second season, played by Taylor Kitsch who everyone I know knows from Friday Night Lights and thus keeps trying to convince me is a promising newcomer. I've only ever encountered him in John Carter and The Normal Heart (discussed previously) and neither have really convinced me that this very attractive young man is really all that. Needless to say, I was ready to see what he'd been given to do here.

(Spoilers ahead)

Sofia Coppola Rumoured For A New Take On The Beguiled

30 March 2016 4:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to potential Hollywood film projects, there are unsubstantiated rumours, and then there are rumours that increasingly look to be likelihoods. The Beguiled is becoming one such likelihood, as Indiewire report that the rumours surrounding the potential project are being supported by comments from people such as Kirsten Dunst. It seems that Academy Award winner Sofia Coppola could well be lining up a fresh version of The Beguiled, with Nicole Kidman, Dunst and Elle Fanning set to star.

First and foremost, The Beguiled is a 1966 novel by Thomas Cullinan, which was previously adapted for cinema in 1971, starring Clint Eastwood, Geraldine Page, Elizabeth Hartman and Jo Ann Harris. That version was directed by Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), and written by Albert Maltz, Irene Kamp and Claude Traverse. If it actually comes together, this new version by Sofia Coppola is expected to present a new adaptation of the source novel, »

'X-Men' Spinoff 'Gambit' Delayed Due to Script Rewrites

29 March 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, 20th Century Fox pushed Gambit out of its October 7, 2016 release date, although the studio didn't issue a specific new date for the superhero movie. Production was scheduled to begin this spring, but today, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that shooting has been pushed back again. The report reveals that shooting will now begin sometime in late 2016, since the script is currently being rewritten.

Reid Carolin, the longtime writing and producing partner of Channing Tatum, has taken over the writing duties on this superhero spinoff. Joshua Zetumer (RoboCop) wrote the original script, but since very little is known about the story thus far, it isn't known how Reid Carolin will change the story. With the production being delayed once again, director Doug Liman, will move on to make another project, The Wall, for Amazon Studios.

The screenplay for The Wall, by Dwain Worrell, was Amazon Studios' first script purchase, »

Taylor Kitsch Making Directorial Debut With ‘Pieces’

22 March 2016 2:06 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Taylor Kitsch‘s career in front of the camera has an uneven one. He shot to fame playing dreamy Tim Riggins in Friday Night Lights, but his performance as Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine was met with shrugs and his would-be franchise-starter John Carter was a big, expensive flop. True Detective sounded like a good next step on paper, but Kitsch had the […]

Jason Mewes talks ‘Bling’ and ‘Mallrats 2’

4 March 2016 8:03 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

When was the last time you saw a movie about jewellery and robots? The answer to that unusual question is something Google Play are banking on for Bling, the first animated film to be distributed via the platform. Best of all it’s free!

Concerning the calamity that ensues when a hopeful man’s engagement surprise is mistakenly acquired by a supervillain, it features attention-grabbing elements such as positronic primate Kit, voiced by Jay and Silent Bob star Jason Mewes.

Putting on our best suit, and with our best inquiries boxed up and ready to be sprung, we took Mr Mewes to the nearest restaurant in the hope he’d accept our proposal. Along the way we couldn’t help but talk about his most famous role and working with friend and quietest Bob in history Kevin Smith for the past couple of decades…

What was your reaction when you were told about the concept? »

Marvelous DA7E: Money Talks -The X-Future and Return of Big Hero 6!

2 March 2016 1:52 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Deadpool continues to rack up the dollars, so Deadpool continues to silently change the landscape of 20th Century Fox as Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice enters the final marketing push in the foreground.

First, we were supposed to get two more X-Movies this year, at least according to the previous release schedule we were working off. X-Men: Apocalypse will still drop at the end of May (as Captain America: Civil War wears off from earlier in the month), but October 7, 2016 is no longer the release date for Gambit, starring Channing Tatum. It appears that movie has been pulled from the schedule entirely.


Nick (@capithano) February 28, 2016

The interesting additions were an untitled Fox/X-Men movie a year later on October 6th, 2017 and a second untitled Fox/X-Men movie for January 12th, 2018. The things we can plug in those release dates that we »

Jason Mewes interview: Bling, Clerks III, MallBrats, superheroes

2 March 2016 4:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




We spoke to actor and frequent Kevin Smith collaborator Jason Mewes about his new movies Bling, Yoga Hosers, MallBrats and Clerks III

Clerks is one of the movies that made me love movies, and so it was with more pre-interview nerves than usual that I waited on hold to connect with Jay actor Jason Mewes via a crackly international phone-line.

We were due to talk about the animated movie Bling - in which Mewes voices a robot monkey called Kit, who shirks his responsibilities as a theme park employee to help the main character (voiced by Taylor Kitsch) take down a super villain and propose to his girlfriend – but the memory of all the nights I’ve spent chuckling away to Jay and Silent Bob’s antics had put some serious fear into me.

I needn’t have worried, because Mewes proved to be a lovely chap to chat with, »

X-Men sequels and spin-offs: UK release date calendar

19 February 2016 4:08 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Now that you’ve (probably) seen Deadpool, here’s the next batch of X-Men movies to look forward to, and when to expect them…

The X-Men franchise is in rude health at the moment. X-Men: Days Of Future Past earned strong reviews and over $700 million in ticket sales, and right now Deadpool is trampling all sorts of box office records and proving that there’s plenty of room for R-Rated family-unfriendly fare within the house that Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg built.

Going forward, the series is showing no signs of slowing down. There are sequels, new properties and spin-offs on the way, including more Deadpool, more Wolverine and even a solo Gambit outing. Here’s when to expect them all in the UK…
