Jeremy Renner takes Tom Cruise's MI4 training to The Bourne Legacy

30 December 2011 11:50 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

There is a moment in the new Mission: Impossible film where, just after they've survived being shot by Russians as their car plunges into a river, Jeremy Renner says to Tom Cruise: "It's really happening, isn't it?"

That line could equally describe Renner's career.

Just as his character Brandt learns to be a field agent from Cruise's Ethan Hunt, so too is The Hurt Locker star beginning to earn his stripes as a blockbusting action man.

Next year sees him starring in The Avengers and taking over from Matt Damon in the fourth film in the Bourne franchise, The Bourne Legacy. So it helped that he had the perfect opportunity to learn from the best in the business when it came to stunts.

"I think he might have an iron stomach or something - he's fearless," says Renner of his co-star. "He really set a high bar in how »

Tmp's Prelude to 2012—Part 2: John Carter, The Hunger Games, Wrath of the Titans, American Reunion, and More

27 December 2011 11:47 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

March and April have quickly become more and more populated.  It seems like all the rejected summer blockbusters flock to these two months, hoping the lack of competition will garner them box office glory.  Well it doesn't always work, you can't deny that there is money to be made during these two months.  And, evident from today's Prelude to 2012, studios want as much money as they can squeeze from these two months.  Hit the jump for full details on over 25 films hoping to make an impact in the limbo between Summer and the beginning of the year.  Who knows...you may just find something you'll like.

March has always been a busy time for film.  In fact, I would say that the year doesn't truly kick off Until this month.  Yeah, there's a couple notable releases in January and February (as shown here), but March is when the first blockbusters »

Hansel, Yemen, Haven, Marigold Change Dates

22 December 2011 10:54 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount has pushed back the Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton-led action fantasy "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" from a March 2nd to a 'to be determined' date sometime next Fall.

The move isn't surprising as so far the only publicity for the film has been one still - a trailer has been long overdue but with the delay it gives the studio much more time to get its publicity and marketing campaign together.

CBS Films has pushed back the Ewan McGregor-led "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" by a week to March 9th, while Relativity have moved the Nicholas Sparks adaptation "Safe Haven" back by nearly four months to a June 1st release date.

Music Box Films have finally announced a date for the Rachel Weisz-led woman's sexual awakening drama "The Deep Blue Sea" - it will hit March 30th.

Lionsgate has set the dates for two more »

Bill Murray Reportedly Hates 'Ghostbusters 3' Script

21 December 2011 10:12 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Another day, another "Ghostbusters 3" rumor — and this one comes from gossip mag The National Enquirer of all places!

The scandalmongers are reporting that after star Bill Murray was sent the latest screenplay of the project, he mailed fellow ghostbusters Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis a nasty present: a box with the script totally shredded inside like confetti. The note attached read, "No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!" The Enquirer reports that Dan and Harold were so upset by his response, that they plan on making the movie without him. Dread Central has more on the report.

Sound like a lot of nonsense to you too? Let us know below, and keep on reading for more of the week's Horror Bites.

Kevin McDonald, who helmed the BAFTA and Oscar-winning Last King of Scotland, is to direct from a screenplay by Jeremy Brock and Toni Grisoni.

Here's the book's synopsis:

15 year old Daisy is sent from New York to England to spend a summer with cousins she has never met. They are Isaac, Edmond, Osbert and Piper. And two dogs and a goat. »

Saoirse Ronan Shows World 'How I Live Now'

14 December 2011 7:31 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Saoirse Ronan has built herself a successful career by consistently choosing difficult, complex roles.

From her breakout performance as a guilt-riddled, life-ruining little girl in "Atonement" to a murdered teen watching her family from beyond the grave in "The Lovely Bones," Ronan has more heart-wrenching moments on film than many actors twice her age. She took an unique turn in the actioner, "Hanna," which recently earned her a Critics' Choice Movie Award nomination.

It looks like all that's going to change with her latest role, a lighthearted romp about what happens when fashion dolls wake up and take over a toy store. Just kidding! Her next movie's going to be a bummer too.

Variety reports that Ronan has signed on to star in Kevin Macdonald's WWII drama "How I Live Now," based on Meg Rosoff's novel of the same name.

Meet Grimm’s Hansel and Gretel

Scoot over Rapunzel. Watch your back Snow White. Hansel and Gretel are the fairy tale rock stars in the spotlight now. First on Boomtron we featured a first look at actors Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton in costume on the set of their upcoming fantasy/ horror flick, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Now that dazzling new series, Grimm, on NBC, will also feature the infamous siblings. They’ll be younger for the TV series, which is what we’re accustomed to when it comes to the fairy tale anyway.

Set in modern day Portland, Grimm follows Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin, a couple of homicide detectives. Nick is actually belonging to a mystical lineage, which means it is his job to be a watchdog against supernatural creatures. Unfortunately, those supernatural beings are already loose among us.

According to EW, “Organ Grinder” is the title of an upcoming episode. »

It appears that Ireland is jumping on the vampire bandwagon after the Irish Film Board granted funding for Neil Jordan’s ‘Byzantium,’ a vampire thriller flick. Attached to the film already are Sam Reilly, Gemma Arterton, and Irish starlet Saoirse Ronan. “The investment by the Ifb in ‘Byzantium’ will ensure that the project can be produced in Ireland, bringing with it international investment and ensuring Irish talent are attached to it,” said one of the film’s producers, Alan Moloney, to The Hollywood Reporter.

13 December 2011 4:27 AM, PST | www.ohmygore.com/ | See recent OhMyGore news »

Entertainment Weekly has a first look at Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as "Hansel Gretel: Witch Hunters". Coming to theaters on March 2nd, the film also stars Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Zoe Bell, Ingrid Bolso Berdal and Derek Mears. The movie takes place 15 years after the siblings' incident at the gingerbread house. Arterton explains: "You see a series of flashbacks with their experience of killing that first witch, which is brilliant... The heart of it is that these kids grow up to be bloodthirsty witch hunters." She added that, while the film is a bit tongue in cheek, "it's also very, very dark, and bloodthirsty and there's a lot of cursing. It's kind of got a [Quentin] Tarantino feel, really." So what are the characters like in the movie? "Gretel is much more in tune »

Next Factor: 'Sherlock Holmes' Star Noomi Rapace

12 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace first dazzled American audiences with her riveting portrayal of punk hacker Lisbeth Salander in the original film adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millennium Trilogy (including "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"). All cheekbones and attitude, the black-lipsticked Salander -- and the woman who played her -- caught Hollywood’s jaded eye. Starting Dec. 16, Rapace stars alongside Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows." Not bad for an actress who only learned English three years ago.

Age: 31

Hometown: Hudiksvall, Sweden

What She's Done: Long before David Fincher’s planned adaptation, Rapace filmed all three movies in the Millennium Trilogy back to back. It took a full year, and during that time the actress was Salander more often than she was Rapace. Salander is an inspiring survivor who, through the course of the trilogy, is beaten, raped, shot in the head, »
