Pan is getting panned by critics: One reviewer has actually given this movie zero stars
5 hours ago
Starring Levi Miller and Hugh Jackman, Pan isn't receiving the warmest of critical receptions, with many believing the Peter Pan origin story is guilty of lacking in fun. Below is an overview of the consensus for the movie:
"There are so many great creative flourishes on show - such as characters exploding in puffs of vivid colour and the detailed CGI landscapes of Neverland - it's just a shame the whole feels less than the sum of its parts. All that considered, when Pan is firing on all cylinders it's a fun and exhilarating ride that'll likely hit home with kids who've never experienced Barrie's world before."
"Dear lord, it's like Rooney Mara »
Paramount is testing the YouTube waters with free movie channel
6 hours ago
Paramount Pictures is dipping its toes in the YouTube pond by launching a channel with hundreds of free movies on the video service.
Hundreds of films for free sounds like a sweet deal. So what's the catch?
Unfortunately there's more than one - not only do you have to be based in the Us to access the Paramount Vault, playback is limited to just 480p.
That's barely higher than VHS quality, and while we're on the subject of quality, many of the movies are bargain-bin fodder like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and American Ninja II: The Confrontation.
No need to cancel that Netflix subscription just yet, but it will be interesting to see where Paramount takes this idea in the future. »
Toy Story 4 has been delayed until 2018 but that's not long enough for some people
6 hours ago
The biggest story from Pixar's wide-ranging announcement was that Toy Story 4 will be delayed for a year until 2018.
It's rare for movie news to unite all film fans, but it seems like everyone is in a strop about it.
A few people were miffed about the longer wait.

Fantastic Four "was a hard movie to make", says producer Simon Kinberg
6 hours ago
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the writer and producer believes that there is potential for a "great" movie with the current cast, but it's difficult to get everything right.
"I haven't really done a full diagnosis [on Fantastic Four]," he said. "It was a hard movie to make, but I've made a lot of hard movies.
"I do think that there is a great Fantastic Four movie with that cast. But there's so many different elements that need to come together perfectly.
"It's like a collaboration between all these strangers. And if there's a few things that don't go right, it's hard to recover from."

MacGruber 2 really could happen after all, and Will Forte promises a "crazy" opening sequence
6 hours ago
Earning just $9.3 million off an equally tiny $10 million budget, the big screen adaptation of Saturday Night Live's MacGyver parody sketch never looked likely to get a sequel, but home media has saved the day.
Talking to ScreenCrush, Forte says the script for the film is very nearly there, but needs just a little finessing.
"There is a possibility of starting it in a way that you would never ever start an action movie," he teased. "We have this idea for a cold open, which we just don't know if we have the balls to do.
"And we've done some crazy stuff. This is just like, 'Do we really want to do this? Is this how we want to start out the movie?' It's pretty gnarly. »
Praise be to the Supreme Being! Terry Gilliam reveals that a Time Bandits TV show is in the works
7 hours ago
Speaking to The Guardian as part of a live webchat in honour of his new book, Gilliamesque: A Pre-posthumous Memoir, the much-loved former Python let the news slip in a delightfully casual manner.
Gilliam goes on to talk more about The Defective Detective - try saying that five times fast - but the important news is that Randall, Fidgit, Strutter, Og, Wally and Vermin Will return to muck about in history.
Avengers: Infinity War two-parter could have a budget of 1 billion dollars
7 hours ago
This is all unconfirmed, but the upcoming Marvel event two-parter Avengers: Infinity War could be getting a combined budget of $1 billion.
Bleeding Cool reported the figure after claiming to have spoken to "very well-sourced comic book film insiders" before New York Comic Con.
The publication added that $400 million for Parts 1 and 2 together will be spent on the writer, director, producers and actors, with half of the actor budget going to Robert Downey Jr, who plays Tony Stark aka Iron Man.
Lastly, the project apparently has no script or even an agreed storyline yet.
We're struggling to buy this, especially since the reported conversation took place in a bar - and the $1bn figure is a little extreme when you consider Avengers: Age of Ultron ended up costing $280 million. But it's an interesting claim nonetheless.
The two Avengers: Infinity War films will be shot back-to-back and directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. »
Campaign to get The Devils released in cinemas intensifies after packed Los Angeles screening
7 hours ago
Witchcraft, nudity, a scene dubbed the "Rape of Christ", Vanessa Redgrave as a masturbating nun... it's hardly surprising that Ken Russell's The Devils fell foul of censors and was slapped with an X certificate on its initial release in 1971.
Film critic Mark Kermode uncovered lost footage in the early '00s and has been championing a full re-release of Russell's original cut ever since.
Various different edits and incarnations exist across DVD, but The Devils has barely seen the light of day in cinemas.
Beyond Fest last night (October 8) presented rare 35mm print of the film in its original X-rated form.
The screening is only the third time The Devils has been shown in cinemas in the Us, and it swiftly sent social media abuzz with film fans calling for Warner Bros to bring it back to the big screen.
This is why @wbpictures should release The Devils: »
Justice League Dark is still a thing at Warner Bros and should shoot in 2016
7 hours ago
Like Deadpool in its time, Warner Bros' Justice League Dark movie was one of those superhero films we never expected to see the light of day.
But according to a new report - and coming as much of a surprise like Deadpool - the supernatural DC Comics adaptation is apparently moving ahead and is apparently a 'priority' for the studio.
Details on the project remain light, but it is expected to star John Constantine forming a team out of the pick of DC's magical characters - such as Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Deadman and Etrigan, the Demon - to combat a supernatural threat.
Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique to take centre stage in X-Men: Apocalypse, according to official synopsis
9 hours ago
So far, most of the attention has gone to villain Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) - whose appearance has attracted derision from die-hard fans of the comics - but now it's J-Law's turn (after his backstory is explained, anyway):
"Since the dawn of civilisation, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.
"Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.

Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Kimmel's Speed parody is the funniest video you'll see today
18 hours ago
A Reasonable Speed isn't quite as nerve-shredding as the original blockbuster, but it does have much more basic traffic instruction!
Set to the tune of 'Slow Ride', Reeves obeys stop signs, keeps both hands on the wheel and watches out for bystanders while chasing down a thief (Jimmy Kimmel).
When he's not obeying the laws of the road, Reeves is preparing to reprise his role as the stoic assassin in John Wick which begins filming this autumn.
Check out more of these parodies on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, airing weeknights on ABC in the Us. »

Sicario review: Emily Blunt excels in a gripping cartel thriller
8 October 2015 9:36 AM, PDT
Sicario. A film that makes you yearn for Chris Eubank to be appointed presenter of Film 2015. And also yearn for more blood-pumpingly intense, thoughtful thrillers like this - where character and story are prioritised above all else.
Emily Blunt excels as Kate Macer, an idealistic FBI agent brought in to work alongside Josh Brolin's laidback government boss Matt Graver and Benicio Del Toro's mysterious torturer Alejandro in the war against drugs. Her refusal to accept the harsh realities on the Mexico-us border soon brings her into conflict with her superiors, while her physical safety is compromised.
Director Denis Villeneuve is having a big year, what with being tasked with the upcoming Blade Runner sequel. Meaning that all eyes - replicant or otherwise - are on his latest effort. On this basis, the omens are good. Sicario's well-structured plot keeps you guessing until a series of effective »
