'Star Wars Rogue One': Is Ben Mendelsohn in or Out?

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As Star Wars Celebration continues to rage on in Anaheim, California, the one movie we've yet to hear anymore about is the first official spinoff titled Rogue One. While we know Felicity Jones is the lead and that Gareth Edwards will direct, we don't know anything about the story at this point. Gareth Edwards is showing up for a Star Wars Celebration panel along with second spinoff director Josh Trank on Sunday. So maybe we'll learn more there. Today, Coming Soon caught up with actor Ben Mendelsohn, rumored to be the male lead in Rogue One. Sadly, he had little to add to the conversation except enthusiasm for the project.

Last seen in this year's adventure yarn Black Sea and this past week's thriller Lost River, Ben Mendelsohn is heavily rumored to be one of the main characters in Rogue One. He seems to love that idea, and would sign on in a heartbeat. »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

Twitter introduces new Star Wars emojis #C3PO, #StormTrooper and #BB8

"He's doing great and working hard," Abrams said, going on to enthusiastically praise the Han Solo actor.

"I had respect for him all my life," he commented, "but I never had more respect for him than when I saw how he landed that plane.

"He's more of a hero than anyone he's played [on film]."

Meanwhile, Kennedy joked: "The amazing thing about Harrison is that he is the only person who could make an emergency landing on a golf course in front of two doctors. »

14 April 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Every now and then it's rather difficult to figure out a headline for these episodes, especially when there isn't any one topic discussed for an extended period. I almost feel I should just set up a word randomizer rather than attempt to actually come up with something coherent. That said, on today's episode we talk a little about "Game of Thrones", a little about Michelle MacLaren departing the Wonder Woman directing gig, about new DVDs and Blu-rays, play some games, chat box office and all the standard shenanigans.

13 April 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

First Look At Creed Sees The Italian Stallion Enter The Ring Once More

13 April 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When he isn’t whipping a bread factory into shape in the rather absurd (and rather brilliant) new ad for Warburtons, Sylvester Stallone is in the ring coaching Michael B. Jordon in Ryan Coogler’s new Rocky spin-off, Creed.

Set some time after the events of the seminal series, the story will primarily center around Jordan’s character, Adonis. As the son of Rocky Balbao’s enemy-turned-ally, Apollo Creed, it isn’t long before our protagonist is seeking advice and training from the former world beater, and it’s only under the tutelage of The Italian Stallion that Adonis will be able to emulate his father’s reputation and ultimately realize his full potential.

The core plot itself may not be wholly original, but there’s certainly a lot of promise brimming beneath Creed‘s burly, musclebound exterior. For one, as one of the lead’s in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, »

Josh Trank Dubs Fantastic Four A Mix Of Spielberg And Burton; New Images Land

See Full Gallery Here

In the space of 24 hours, we’ve gone from having a vague, hazy idea of how Ben Grimm’s altered form would appear in the Fantastic Four to owning definitive proof. Earlier fan snaps of the character, whose transformation in the alternate world sees him dubbed The Thing, weren’t exactly coherent and so, Fox revealed the first proper still yesterday. A clear front-facing image, it’s brought to life the sheer enormity of the character, despite it bearing no resemblance to the actor playing him, Jamie Bell.

If that long-awaited preview wasn’t enough, then fear not. Entertainment Weekly‘s latest summer preview includes another snap of The Thing, moments before crushing something just offscreen. In addition, USA Today unveiled a fresh look at Miles Teller’s Reed Richards poring over a techno-gadget spewing wires and all sort of hi-tech gimmickry. You can check them »

Wait, Is Fantastic Four Going To Be Creepy?

10 April 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We.ve been thinking of Josh Trank.s upcoming Fantastic Four as a superhero movie. It is, after all, based on a popular Marvel comic and features a heroic team of individuals with superpowers and costumes. Seems to fit the bill. But according to the director, the film may be much creepier than you expect. EW caught up with Trank, who made his name with 2012.s low-budget, superpowered Chronicle, and he talked about focusing on the terrifying nature of the powers acquired by Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell). He said: I just kinda jumped to .body horror. in my head. Chronicle is about the evolution and strengthening of unique powers. This movie is really viewing them as a curse. X-Men: Days Of Future Past writer/producer Simon Kinberg handled the script, and he and Trank had two »

Two Clear Images Of The Fantastic Four’s Thing

10 April 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

After months of playing coy, Fox’s marketing teams have finally decided it’s clobbering time. There are now two officially sanctioned images of The Thing doing the rounds, one released to Empire and the other to Entertainment Weekly, and both of them right here, right now, for your consideration.

20th Century Fox

He’s not as orange as fans might be used to, and his big, cartoony brow has gone, but I get it. I can see the pathos in this design.

It’s also interesting how little he looks like Jamie Bell. Now the images are out there, the next testing point will come when we hear Bell’s voice coming out of this thing, or see it animated with, presumably, some input from his performance capture.

Josh Trank and Simon Kinberg have obviously made a lot of changes to The Fantastic Four in the »

New Images From 'Fantastic Four,' Josh Trank Talks "Body Horror" Approach

10 April 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"I’m a huge David Cronenberg fan, and I always viewed Fantastic Four and the kind of weirdness that happens to these characters and how they’re transformed to really fall in line more with a Cronenberg-ian science fiction tale of something horrible happening to your body and [it] transforming out of control," director Josh Trank said earlier this year about this approach to the superhero flick. And he's doubling down on that as the release for "Fantastic Four" draws closer. “I just kinda jumped to ‘body horror’ in my head,” Trank told EW. “ 'Chronicle' is about the evolution and strengthening of unique powers. This movie is really viewing them as a curse.” But of course, making that work in the confines of a big summer spectacle can be tricky, and it's something that the cast is acutely aware of. “We have all the ingredients to make something special, »

Fantastic Four Is a Cross Between Steven Spielberg and Tim Burton, Says Josh Trank

9 April 2015 3:43 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Earlier this morning, we got our first good look at the transformed The Thing from director Josh Trank’s (Chronicle) comic book adaptation Fantastic Four. Yet another image of Jamie Bell’s CG character from the film has now landed online, along with some interesting tidbits about the film itself. Trank previously told us that he was inspired by David Cronenberg-ian body horror for his take on Fantastic Four, and in a new interview with EW he goes one further to say the tone is a cross between Steven Spielberg and Tim Burton; he dubs it “Dark Amblin.” Indeed, his take on the property is about viewing superpowers as a curse, as the titular team of scientists become physically altered after an inter-dimensional mission goes wrong.
