An intergalactic love story originally set up at now-bankrupt Relativity under the title "Out of This World" has now migrated to Stx Entertainment, a fast-growing, deep-pocketed film and TV studio launched last year by Robert Simonds. Relativity, which has had a hell of a week, had not fully greenlit the project when Stx began bidding in mid-July. But the film had a script from Allan Loeb and a director, Peter Chelsom ("Hector and the Search for Happiness"), who's staying onboard. Based on a story written by Richard Lewis, Stewart Schill and Loeb, the film is now untitled and is set to star Gary Oldman, Asa Butterfield, Carla Gugino and Britt Robertson.

Tyrese Really Wants to be a Green Lantern

25 July 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tyrese Gibson sure does like talking about Green Lantern. It's a definite change of pace from Marvel Studios who really dislike when their actors talk about roles before officially signing. Hell, online chatter said Asa Butterfield was the front-runner for Spider-Man until he went on social media and starting talking about it. However, this isn't Marvel, and Tyrese is openly campaigning for the role of John Stewart in Green Lantern Corps. Speaking to Collider, he had this to say about the role: "I've already had a couple of meetings at Warner Bros., so we'll see what happens. I do believe that there needs to be more black superheroes out there, but that's not even my motivation. I think I would be the best Green Lantern and based on my fans and supporters that spent around $6 billion in box office receipts, I feel like there's a fanbase of fans out there »

Marvel's 'Spider-Man' Shows Up on 'Suicide Squad' Set

24 July 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Wait, isn't that the newly anointed Peter Parker hanging out with Rick Flagg, Jr.? Yes, and it seems the DC Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe war is in full effect, as evidenced in a new photo from the set of Suicide Squad, which loads Tom Holland up with weapons. The photo arrives courtesy of Joel Kinnaman's personal Instagram page, who celebrated in fashion as one of his comic book rivals appeared on set. There is no mention as to why or how the young Spider-Man actor wound up partying with DC's baddest villains.

DC has been quite a bit more vocal about igniting a war between their rival studio Marvel. Aquaman star Jason Momoa was the first to throw down the gauntlet at a fan event last year, when he scrawled 'F*ck Marvel' on a poster he was autographing when asked about the studio's winning streak. Then, just a few weekends ago, »

Tim Burton Unveils 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' Logo

24 July 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tim Burton is embracing social media in the promotion of his latest fantasy adventure. He jumped on his personal Facebook page last night to share the first official look at his upcoming adaptation Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. While we don't get to see any of the characters yet, we do get to see the home mentioned in the title. And we get some bird symbolism. It looks like nothing but blue skies for these strange kids who are about to get a very unexpected visitor.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is based upon the best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs. We won't get to see the movie until March 4, 2016, so a trailer may still be miles away. The movie has quite an ensemble of fan-favorite talent, lead by Asa Butterfield, who lost out on the role of Spider-Man just in the last few months. At least he has »

Did Marvel's new Spider-Man just commit career 'Suicide Squad'?

22 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When David Ayer was onstage at Comic-Con, he seemed to be one of the few filmmakers to directly address the DC/Marvel rivalry. If anything, he seemed determined to instigate even more of it. "Let's get some serious East Coast/West Coast shit going," he joked as he brought out his cast. Well, it looks like some shots were fired overnight. Tom Holland has, by all accounts I've heard so far, stepped right into his role as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man with aplomb. I have no doubt the kid's going to work well onscreen. The process by which he won the role was not an easy one, and he was up against some other talented young guys who could easily have gotten the role. Asa Butterfield was heavily tipped to be the one to beat, and rumor has it that it wasn't just the screen test that made Marvel pass on Butterfield. »

DVD Review: 'X+Y'

13 July 2015 4:03 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ The evolution of The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon has acclimatised modern audiences to notion of tittering at the eccentricities of people on the autistic spectrum. Generalities blind audiences to the fact that people on that spectrum are very much distinct individuals with likes, dislikes and talents, just as with the rest of us. Morgan Matthews' X+Y (2014) cannot be accused of ridiculing its subject, Nathan, who is considerately portrayed by Asa Butterfield. He is a maths whizz but not merely a cold, obsessed machine. Nathan is diagnosed at a young age and his father (Martin McCann), being a relaxed soul, finds it easier than his mum (Sally Hawkins) to cajole and coax a smile out of his seemingly distant son.
