‘Mission: Impossible’ – Breaking Christopher McQuarrie out of Director’s Jail

27 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Friday, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation will be released. It’s the fifth film in the iconic franchise, but sadly stands as only the third film of its director Christopher McQuarrie in 15 years since he got behind the camera. That’s a real shame, because Christopher McQuarrie is Hollywood’s best-kept secret when he really should be their pride and joy.

Christopher McQuarrie was so damn hot in the mid-90s. He wrote the script for the classic The Usual Suspects and came home with an Oscar. He ended up using that clout to get his feature-directing debut made with the criminally underrated The Way of the Gun, released in 2000. The film failed both critically and commercially – a domestic gross of $6 million, and a worldwide gross of only $13 million against a $21 million budget – and McQuarrie went from insider to outcast in Hollywood.

Fast forward eight years and McQuarrie had only »

Terminator: Genisys passes $300 million at the box office

27 July 2015 4:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It has been destroyed by critics (read our reviews here and here)and was called the Worst Blockbuster of All-Time by our own Anghus Houvouras – but Terminator: Genisys passed a milestone this weekend.

Terminator: Genisys added another $2.5 million to its domestic total and has now made $305 million worldwide, the majority of which has come from overseas. In the Us, the movie has made just $85 million, but its worldwide take of $219 million (taken mostly in South Korea, United Kingdom and Russia) has helped push the movie past the $300 million marker.

However, the movie cost a whopping $185 million – and that doesn’t include marketing costs – so there is still some way for it to go before it becomes “profitable”. Terminator: Genisys is currently the 14th biggest movie of the year, and is being outperformed by The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Taken 3 and Mad Max: Fury Road. »

'Terminator Genisys' Sequels and TV Series May Not Happen

22 July 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

10 months before Terminator Genisys opened in theaters over the 4th of July holiday, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions announced plans for two Terminator sequels, set for release in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Back in 2013, Skydance, which paid over $20 million for the franchise rights back in 2011, announced plans for a TV series, hiring Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write the script. Now that Terminator Genisys has finally hit theaters, and the movie is underperforming, plans for these sequels and the spinoff TV show are in limbo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Terminator Genisys has only taken in $82.1 million domestically since its July 1 release, but it has fared much better overseas, taking in $196.8 million for a worldwide tally of $278.9 million, from a $155 million budget. While the results certainly don't classify Terminator Genisys as a box office bomb, the studio was surely hoping for higher figures. The movie still hasn't opened in China yet, »

Top Ten Tuesday – Comic-Con 2015

21 July 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Another San Diego Comic-Con International has come and gone. This year was a great year for films, friends, and fun! Check out my Top 10 cinematic moments from this years con. Also, be sure to share your favorite moments from this year. I’d love to hear from you! Now, let’s get started!

10. Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Let me start off by saying that I have not been looking forward to this film. I’m not stoked on the new batsuit, and disagree with their casting of Lex Luthor, simply because I feel as though the character should be older. Having said that, this is the best trailer that I have seem thus far, and I really hope that they prove me wrong. Check out the all new trailer that debuted in Hall H and let me know what you think!

'Suicide Squad' Audition Sparked a Fury in Cara Delevingne

17 July 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director David Ayer and his Suicide Squad cast took a break from filming in Toronto last week to make a surprise appearance at Comic-Con, where they showed fans the first trailer. It will likely be quite some time before we see more footage, but an extensive profile of star Cara Delevingne in Time gives us a unique glimpse into her audition process with David Ayer. Since the film's script wasn't written yet, the director asked her to read as Martha in a scene from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? But he made her read the part in so many different ways that it infuriated the actress. Here's what she had to say below.

"I was like, 'Honestly, if I go outside and punch people, you've got to come get me out of jail because I am so furious.' He sparked a f---ing fury in me."

Of course, it all worked out in the end, »

Why Terminator Genisys is a disaster that could be averted

17 July 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It didn’t have to be this way. With all their apparent understanding of time travel, the makers of this absurdly convoluted turkey can still go back and abort it

Spoiler alert: this article does its best to explain the plot of Terminator Genisys.

Terminator Genisys is not doing terribly well at the box office. Some say this is because the insanely complicated plot is too hard to follow; some fault the disastrous decision to cast the bland, useless Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, the putative saviour of mankind; some fault the curious decision to cast the perky but not especially intimidating Emilia Clark in the role made famous by the fierce Linda Hamilton; and some say the series has simply run out of gas. All of these criticisms have merit – the film is just plain awful. The question is: could this catastrophe have been avoided? The answer is yes. »

Thanks Jared! Margot Robbie Still Has the Rat Her 'Suicide Squad' Castmate Sent Her

17 July 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Say what you want about the upcoming Suicide Squad, the actors are definitely taking their characters seriously. It was previously reported that Jared Leto, who plays the Joker, sent his fellow cast members gifts in character. One of those gifts was a live rat and a love letter in a black box to his co-star Margot Robbie. According to an interview in Elle, Robbie, who plays Suicide Squad member Harley Quinn, still has the rat and seems to be treating him pretty well. "If Harley got something from Joker, she'd probably cherish it," says Robbie. Harley Quinn is a former psychiatrist who falls in love with the Joker and becomes his girlfriend and accomplice. Not only is she "cherishing" the rat, she's also pampering him with a pretty nice vegan diet. Rat Rat, as he's now called, dines only on organic berries from Whole Foods. This is all after she »

Check out this cool group picture of the heroes and villains from Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad

15 July 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The heroes and villains from the DC Comics movies Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad have come together for one awesome group photo.

Present for a full-cast picture taken last weekend following a DC-centric Warner Bros panel at Comic-Con International were Batman v Superman stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg and Gal Gadot.

Everything we know so far about Batman v Superman: Spoilers, trailer and latest rumours

Joining them for The Hollywood Reporter gathering were Suicide Squad's loveable rogues Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne, among others.

One notable star missing from the lineup was Jared Leto, who will play The Joker in next year's super-villain team-up movie Suicide Squad.

Jesse Eisenberg – the man behind Batman v Superman villain Lex Luthor - was surrounded on either side by his director Zack Snyder and co-star Gadot, but still looked a bit skittish. »

'Batman v Superman' and 'Suicide Squad' Casts Unite for Epic Photo

15 July 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If both casts for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad weren't big enough by themselves already, an epic group photo has brought everyone together for the first time. This is the Dawn of the DC Cinematic Universe, and everyone is accounted for...Except that pesky Jared Leto, who is so method, he can't break from character to do press. Good and Evil collided over the weekend at Comic-Con, and while plenty of new footage and photos have come from the event, only THR were able to get both casts in the same room at the same time for what is one very big picture. They have also included a handy graph explaining who everyone is.

17 actors in all participated in the photo shoot, which was done in secret. They were joined by their directors Zack Snyder, who is handling the big battle between two of DC's most iconic superheroes, »

'Suicide Squad': What We Learned at Comic-Con

15 July 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the Saturday Comic-Con schedule first came out in late June, the official description for Warner Bros.' Hall H panel was this: "A 'sneak peek' at a few upcoming releases." While that certainly wasn't much to go on, most fans expected that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would surely be part of the festivities, and just a few days later that superhero adventure was confirmed, along with a pair of 2015 releases, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (August 14) and Pan (October 7). Some fans were surprised that Suicide Squad wasn't on the agenda, but others weren't since production is still happening in Toronto. Keeping the tradition of Comic-Con's unannounced surprises alive, Suicide Squad director David Ayer took the stage, delivering a rousing speech that had the fans cheering, while joking about starting an "East Coast/West Coast" feud with Marvel. Here's what the filmmaker had to say below, »

'Suicide Squad' Cast Selfie Is Missing One Important Villain

14 July 2015 6:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Did you not get enough of Suicide Squad during Comic-Con? The super villain team made quite a splash with their epic debut in Hall H, where they all appeared on stage to watch the first ever footage in unison. The trailer leaked soon thereafter, and has since been officially released by Warner Bros. Now comes an official cast selfie. Though, you'll notice one very important element is missing. Where the heck has Jared Leto been through all of this, anyway?

While on stage for the Q&A session, the cast didn't get to say too much. And we learned little about their individual characters. But it's clear that Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn is set to steal the show. Also appearing in both the footage and in person were Karen Fukuhara (Katana), Adam Beach (Slipknot), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman »
