Game Review: ‘Prince of Persia’ a Mesmerizing, Addictive, Near Masterpiece

24 December 2008 2:21 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – Ubisoft’s “Prince of Persia” does more than just take the opportunity to update a last-generation classic franchise on the next-generation format, just in time for the movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, and Alfred Molina to start building buzz for its Memorial Day 2010 release. “Prince of Persia” is that rare game that’s good enough that fans will still be playing it when the Gyllenhaal movie version hits theaters in seventeen months.

In his debut on the PS3 and XBox 360, the Prince is caught in a battle between ultimate light, represented by the God Ormazd, and pure evil, represented by Ormazd’s nasty brother Ahriman. The game opens with a chase, in which the Prince encounters Elika, a magical princess who will accompany him on his journey to save his Persian kingdom from complete evil. In the opening, the Tree of Life is destroyed and a »

The Boat That Rocked trailer arrives

4 December 2008 11:02 PM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

The trailer for Richard Curtis’ new comedy, The Boat That Rocked, has arrived – and you can see it right here. Starring a top-notch ensemble that includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Nick Frost and the lovely Gemma Arterton, Boat finds a pirate radio station operating from a ship in the North Sea.  Naturally, the government wants to shut the music-spewing nuisance down, but that just increases the pirates’ popularity. It looks like good stuff (Frost as a love god? Maybe…) and it’ll... .

First Video Surfaces of ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’ With Jake Gyllenhaal From Jerry Bruckheimer

19 November 2008 5:10 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – After the first image of extras surfaced on Oct. 15, 2008 for the movie adaptation “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” we now have the first video footage thanks to Entertainment Tonight’s willingness to go all the way to Morocco to get it.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” star Jake Gyllenhaal has some decidedly modest and sarcastic fun in his interview with Entertainment Tonight’s Thea Andrews while the camera reveals to us the first live-action shots from the film. You can watch the video segment below now.

“I guess I’ve gotten buff,” Gyllenhaal told Entertainment Tonight. “There’s a lot acrobatics in the movie – a lot of running up walls and jumping on things. It requires muscularity, but it requires a lot of aerobic ability, too.”

Some screenshots from the Entertainment Tonight video segment have been published by Movie Chronicles. Entertainment Tonight describes the plotline for the film, »

Review: Quantum of Solace

16 November 2008 11:26 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Growing up, James Bond was always about stories. The gadgets, the gorgeous women, the fast cars, all were threads in the Tapestry of Bond; one could easily miss one or two, as long as the overall picture was exciting enough. Paul Haggis, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade combine to weave us the new Bond blanket, with Marc Forster (Finding Neverland, Loungers) at the directorial helm. Yes, James Bond is back, and this time it Is personal - but unfortunately, it seems, it.s a little too personal.

There are all the classic symbols of a Bond film; cool guns, expansive luxurious landscapes, fights that (as a warm-blooded male) made me want to run straight to the gym and get pumping - even the opening sequence is an intense car chase involving guns, tunnels, and a body in the trunk. It is such a shame that these threads, instead of weaving something of a Bond Bayeuax, »

"Quantum of Solace" is the biggest Bond opener ever. Daniel Craig starrer grosses estimated $70.4 million.

16 November 2008 6:19 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The latest James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" grossed an impressive $70.4 million estimate on its debut weekend for Sony/MGM. Daniel Craig returned as James Bond in 3,451 venues and averaged a massive $20,400 per theatre. "Quantum of Solace" becomes the biggest Bond opener ever, 63% better in fact than "Casino Royale," which marked Craig's first appearance as 007. The film is currently placed as the fifth biggest-ever November opener almost on par with Disney/Pixar's "The Incredibles" at $70.467 million, although this will most likely change with the latter falling below. A remarkable feat indeed as all top November openers are either "Harry Potter" films (the first three rankings) or animated. Family genres rule the month. Second placed "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" from DreamWorks/Paramount showed a 43% change in its sophomore weekend at play with $36.1 million. The sequel animation passed $118 million. In third, surprise hit comedy "Role Models" which has enjoyed good word of mouth push, »

List of Top Seven James Bond Gadgets

Chicago – With “Quantum of Solace” opening today starring Daniel Craig, Gemma Arterton, Judi Dench and Olga Kurylenko, Jeff Bayer’s The Scorecard Review (a partner with has published its list of the top seven James Bond gadgets.

Who would James Bond be without his cool gadgets? Sure, he would still be a great spy with a license to kill, but would there be 22 movies about the man?

Bond fans remember the old films when Q would introduce some new gadgets with each new installment. While Q may be missing in the latest films, Bond still has some slick tools. While even some of Bond’s adversaries dabble in gadgetry, this list will be strictly MI6.

First Video from Disney's 'Prince of Persia'!

14 November 2008 8:32 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Pictured: Our first look at Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton in Disney's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

The first behind-the-scenes video from the set of Disney's Prince of Persia has made its way online, courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, and in it you'll get to see a glimpse of the sets in London at Pinewood Studios (where they're still shooting for about another couple of weeks), as well as a taste of what was done in Morocco and a quick chat with the Prince himself, Jake Gyllenhaal. But don't let Jake's regular old American accent fool you -- the dude has taken on a whole new accent for Persia, but you'll have to wait a little while longer before we're allowed to share the type of accent it is.

Cinematical was lucky enough to visit the set of Prince of Persia earlier this month, and while we can't really go into details, »

"Quantum of Solace" - A Third Review: No, you don’t have to understand everything about a Bond movie to enjoy it.

14 November 2008 7:28 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Quantum of Solaceby Mike Digiorgio, Writer               Honestly, I’ve never understood the plot of a single James Bond movie, but for some reason, I get excited before each new one.  The action scenes, the dapper secret agent, the fights, the cool villains, the babes – they really seem like something any red-blooded American action movie fan should like.             And honestly, every time, I sit there and wonder what the heck is going on?               I don’t remember any specific plot of any Bond movie – I remember the images:  from a bald villain petting his kitty to the bikini clad chick emerging from the ocean to the tuxedoed secret agent in the opening credits.  Quantum of Solace doesn’t deliver any of those iconic images.  Perhaps arrogantly, the makers of Quantum don’t think they need to deliver traditional Bond.  They broke from tradition in 2006’s Casino Royale when they cast Daniel Craig »

"Quantum of Solace" - A Second Review: Damaged Goods Never Looked So Fantastic

14 November 2008 7:10 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Quantum of Solaceby Steve Ramos, Writer   Damaged Goods Never Looked So Fantastic: Daniel Craig shines in ‘Quantum of Solace’   After solidifying his status as a great James Bond, as rugged and intense as the first Bond Sean Connery ever was, it may appear unfair to bring up Daniel Craig’s little-seen performance in the 1998 art- house film “Love is the Devil.” After all, Craig’s role as George Dyer, lowlife lover to British artist Francis Bacon, shares little in common with the courageous secret agent 007. Yet, what makes Craig the perfect Bond and a welcome complement to his predecessor Pierce Brosnan are qualities he makes use of in all his films, whether epic adventures or low-budget art movies: a piercing gaze, chiseled features, a gruff voice and most importantly, the spirit of a brute, someone who could explode in violence at any moment.   Craig plays Bond as damaged goods, the »

Prince Of Persia Plagued By Scorpions

14 November 2008 4:09 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Filming on Jake Gyllenhaal's new movie Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time has been interrupted after a number of deadly scorpions were let loose the set.

The movie - which also stars Bond girl Gemma Arterton - is currently being filmed at Pinewood studios, in Buckinghamshire, England.

But officials were forced to call in a team of pest control experts to help contain the creatures, which were reportedly accidentally shipped in from Morocco when shooting on the movie transferred back to Britain.

Several scorpions have now been recaptured, but staff at the studio have been warned to be vigilant in case any more of the creatures are lurking in the building. »

"Quantum of Solace" Review - James Bond is back and he is mad as hell.

13 November 2008 9:59 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Quantum of Solaceby Eric Sloss, Writer   James Bond is back and he is mad as hell.  “Quantum of Solace” is the latest entry in the James Bond canon.  Daniel Craig returns in his second go around as Bond.  The movie takes place shortly after the events of “Casino Royale”.  Bond is still raw and smarting from the death and betrayal of Vesper Lynd (Eva Green).  He is determined to get to the bottom of her death.   The movie starts with a magnificent car chase.  Some people might feel that if you have seen one car chase, you have seen them all.  I beg to differ.  Standout car chases like in “Bullitt”, “The French Connection” or even the more recent “Ronin” are like poetry in motion.  You can tell good ones from ones that are just time wasters.  The opening sequence definitely belongs in the poetic category.  Bond brings in Mr »

Check This Out: Richard Curtis' The Boat That Rocked Posters

4 November 2008 7:57 AM, PST | | See recent news »

One Boat. Eight Men. No Morals. Check this story out: In the 1960's, a group of rogue English radio DJs setup a radio station on a boat in the middle of the North Sea and broadcast rock music that defined a generation and stood up to the British government. The Boat That Rocked is the cinematic retelling of that tremendous story, as captured by Love Actually writer/director Richard Curtis. Need I mention the cast? Bill Nighy, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kenneth Branagh, Nick Frost, and Rhys Ifans make up most of the DJs, while Gemma Arterton and January Jones play the beauties that disrupt the flow of things. And too add even more excitement into the mix, Empire has debuted the first few colorful posters from the film. I don't know much about the story, about the characters, or even about the kind of music they played, but I don't »
