7 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Charlie Hunnam is about to be seen in the final season of "Sons of Anarchy" on FX and after that it will likely be a long stream of movies and the schedule is starting to fill up. He was recently named the title star of Guy Ritchie's Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, he will almost certainly be back for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim sequel and now he's rumored to be the top contender to play Snake Plissken in the remake of John Carpenter's Escape from New York alongside a couple others still in the mix. Hunnam as well as Dan Stevens ("Downton Abbey", The Guest) and Jon Bernthal (Fury, "The Walking Dead") are reported to be the top three choices for the lead role, looking to pick up after Kurt Russell as Plissken, a convicted bank robber in a crime-riddled New York City-turned-maximum security prison, coerced »

Marvel Comics is not promoting Big Hero 6

9 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel Comics' editor-in-chief has explained the publisher's lack of Big Hero 6 promotions.

The company has not released any tie-in comics in the run-up to the release of the Disney animation.

Axel Alonso said that the film is so far from the comics it is based on that pushing them would be "a disservice to filmgoers".

"There are no plans," he told Cbr.

"The characters and stories that have appeared in our comics are very different from what they are in the film. Releasing material that would be viewed as movie tie-in product would be a disservice to filmgoers.

"We wanted the Disney folks to be able to create their own unique style and story, unencumbered by those older stories."

Alonso added that Marvel is not currently planning any comics featuring the new characters introduced in the film.

The comic version of the team was created by Steven T »

Marvel's Black Panther Movie Confirmed By Stan Lee

8 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

How much does Stan "The Man" Lee know about Marvel.s pending film slate? I mean, Stan Lee Is Marvel. Without him, there would be no Cinematic Universe, no characters on which to base these amazing Marvel films that audiences are flocking to (in record-setting fashion). But is the 91-year-old comic-book legend up to date on all of Marvel.s moving pieces? Because if he is, then he just confirmed a Black Panther movie. Stan Lee was speaking at the Fan Expo Canada on Friday (via Comic Book Resources), and let it slip that the Black Panther movie indeed was happening (instead of being this juicy rumor that no one at Marvel will confirm just yet). When addressing the question of whether or not Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow character soon will get her own solo movie, Lee explained: The chances are she will have her own movie because eventually »

29 minutes ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Directed by Ivan Reitman, the sports drama Draft Day, available on Blu-ray/DVD on September 2nd, shows just how much NFL Draft Day can change the lives of athletes and the fortunes of football teams.  General Manager Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) is up against fan pressure, an ambitious owner (Frank Langella) and a hard-nosed coach (Denis Leary), who all think they know what’s best for the team, and he must decide whether to go with the consensus pick or trust his instincts and risk losing everything.  The film also stars Jennifer Garner, Sam Elliott, Sean Combs, Terry Crews, Tom Welling, Ellen Burstyn and Chadwick Boseman. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Reitman talked about wanting to make a sports movie that even people who don’t care about sports could enjoy, focusing on the human drama, what makes him want to direct a movie, that there were »

‘Maps to the Stars’ Acquired by Focus World for 2015 Release (Exclusive)

48 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After winning the best actress award in Cannes for “Maps to the Stars,” Julianne Moore was considered a strong bet in this year’s Oscar race for her turn as a washed-up star in the David Cronenberg drama. But the overdue actress, who has been nominated for four Academy Awards without winning, could be sitting out of this year’s awards season.

In a deal that closed last week, Focus World picked up U.S. distribution rights to the Cronenberg drama from Canadian outfit eOne, sources tell Variety exclusively. “Maps to the Star’s” won’t premiere stateside until early 2015.

Focus World is the alternative distribution division of Focus Features, and it hasn’t been decided if the drama will be released on VOD or if it will play in theaters domestically or some combination thereof. “Maps” could get an Oscar qualifying theatrical release at the end of 2014, so that »

Shawshank Redemption's Prison Has Been Renovated For Tourism

1 hour ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Shawkshank Redemption was a disappointment at the box office in 1995, pulling in just $3 million more than its budget. But as years passed, it became a movie beloved by many, possibly in part to its high re-run count on cable television. Whatever the reason, the public became entranced by the tragedy of innocent convict Andy Dufresne. And now, fans of this seven-time Oscar nominee can plan a pilgrimage to its key location. The Pittsburgh Gazette reports that the Ohio State Reformatory that served as the main location for The Shawkshank Redemption's prison is now being opened for tours. Book your ticket to Mansfield, Ohio, to enjoy a closer look at the incredible building that played home to the Frank Darabont drama. The reformatory is a high point in a 13-stop Shawshank Redemption bus tour that includes visits to filming locations like the Bissman building where Brooks hung himself (Red decided »

Playing the charismatic, expert swordsman Syrio Forel on the HBO series Game of Thrones, actor Miltos Yerolemou showed that he is pretty skilled performing with a blade. Now you can prepare for a ton of suggestion that he'll be trading his broadsword for a lightsaber in Star Wars: Episode VII.

As I'm sure many of you could have predicted, there aren't currently any details available about the character he will play - and LucasFilm declined to comment regarding whether or not the story is true. The movie recently rebooted it's production following a two week hiatus as a result of Harrison Ford's on-set foot injury, but it now seems like things are back in full swing at Pinewood Studios, »

Film Review: Nicole Kidman in ‘Before I Go To Sleep’

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before I Go To Sleep” is a risky title for a genre exercise intended to keep viewers bolt upright in their seats, handing mirthful critics a ready-made punchline at the first sign of lethargy. The good news is that Rowan Joffe’s adaptation of S.J. Watson’s 2011 publishing phenom is far from a snooze; the bad news is that it’s the film’s escalating, po-faced ludicrousness that holds our attention. Starring a typically hard-working Nicole Kidman as a short-term amnesiac unsure whether she’s being played by her husband, her shrink or both, With David Fincher’s similarly targeted “Gone Girl” already siphoning its buzz, this dopey diversion will need the novel’s fans to turn out en masse to avoid being forgotten by morning.

A planned Halloween release Stateside — weeks after the film’s Sept. 5 release in Blighty and elsewhere — might lead auds to expect an out-and-out frightfest, »

2 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Magic Mike became a big hit and a cultural phenomenon when it was released back in 2012. As a result, it's achieved a rare thing for an indie flick: a sequel. Here comes Magic Mike Xxl, which a secretive source reveals is officially in production. Via Twitter: It's On! pic.twitter.com/zczZdpqzdt. Bitchuation (@Bitchuation) August 31, 2014 From this picture of the slate, we can glean a few clues about Magic Mike Xxl. For one thing, there will be scenes set in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. That.s a shift north from the first film, as Magic Mike was shot on location in Tampa, Florida. The aerial shots of the location will likely be shot from the helicopter in the background. But most intriguing is the second unit shoot's camera operator, Peter Andrews. What makes Peter Andrews so interesting? Well, he's the owner of the Twitter handle @Bitchuation (which may be is »

Watch: Alejandro González Iñárritu Talks 'Birdman' at Telluride (Exclusive Video)

2 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Alejandro González Iñárritu is a happy man--a little tired, perhaps, as he flew to Colorado from the Venice Film Festival, where "Birdman" earned raves, to introduce the North American premiere Saturday at the Telluride Film Festival, which he described as a "Disneyland for adults," a "heaven" for cinephiles. He laughed as he shot the film for the first time in his life, he added, describing the process as "a joy. Michael Keaton got naked spiritually and physically." When the filmmaker turned 50, his examination of his life and psyche led him to collaborate with a team of writers on this sharp show business comedy that skewers the current Hollywood obsession with superheroes as it reveals the psychological pitfalls of the creative process. This is something Iñárritu knows something about, as he followed up his breakout "Amores Perros" with a series of tough English-language dramas »

Jennifer Garner Surfs the Web in New Men, Women & Children Images

2 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Judging by the film’s first trailer, Men, Women & Children is going to be a rather striking departure for Up in the Air and Young Adult filmmaker Jason Reitman.  His previous feature, Labor Day, showed that Reitman was in the midst of evolving as a director, but Men, Women & Children looks to be worlds away from his other films, teasing a deeply dark, dramatic, and intense chronicle of living life in the digital age.  Based on the Chad Kulten novel of the same name, the picture revolves around high school students and their parents, and how their relationships, self-image and quality of life are affected by the internet.  A pair of new Men, Women & Children images have been released that feature stars Jennifer Garner and Ansel Elgort, and the photos continue the sober tone that was prevalent in the film’s teaser trailer.  I’m incredibly curious to see what »

Matt Damon's Elysium Exoskeleton Comes To Life Thanks To A Fan

2 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While most people who consider themselves a fan of a movie typically celebrate that fanhood with the occasional reference or rewatch, there are others who just feel compelled to try and bring the fictional reality to life. Take, for example, this guy, who was inspired to build Matt Damon's exoskeleton suit from Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi action film Elysium: Ee've seen the world of comic books inspire geeks to create things like Spider-Man web shooters, Iron Man laser gauntlets, and retractable Wolverine claws, but this is obviously a bit different. Long story short: he saw Matt Damon's exoskeleton in Elysium and said to himself, "I can make that." The video above comes from YouTube user The Hacksmith, who has a channel completely packed with videos like the one seen above, featuring the host building all kinds of crazy cool gadgets and devices.

Watch: First Trailer For Abel Ferrara's 'Pasolini' Starring Willem Dafoe

3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Abel Ferrara has always been known for creating characters and stories that delve into the most extreme of human behaviours, but for his latest couple of films, he's tackled real life people whose actions speak for themselves. Earlier this year the filmmaker unveiled "Welcome To New York," the fictionalized tale of former Imf chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, and now just a couple of months later, Ferrara is in Venice where he's premiering "Pasolini," a feature about famed and controversial filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini. And a pretty great first trailer has arrived. Dipping between English, Italian and French, this looks to be a rather respectful and quite beautiful look at the director who brought "Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom" and "The Gospel According To St. Matthew" to cinemas. The movie will focus on Pasolini's final days, and the events surrounding his murder. While a male prostitute initially confessed to the crime, »

Magic Mike Xxl Second Unit Filming Has Begun with Steven Soderbergh as Camera Operator

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ladies and gentlemen, Magic Mike Xxl is on the way.  Director Steven Soderbergh’s “male stripper movie” Magic Mike was one of the bigger surprises of 2012 in more ways than one.  Not only did the $7 million pic become a box office smash to the tune of $167 million worldwide, but Soderbergh dug deep into his subject matter, crafting a seriously dramatic story about the American Dream against the backdrop of the male stripper world.  Tatum has been hard at work on the Magic Mike sequel for the past year, and today Soderbergh revealed that second unit filming has already begun via a Magic Mike Xxl image on Twitter.  Though Soderbergh is in retirement from film directing, he’s acting as the cinematographer, camera operator, and editor on Magic Mike Xxl while Gregory Jacobs takes over the director’s chair.  It appears that he’s getting a jump on things before principal photography begins in earnest, »
