It is thought that Tatum's desire to move into directing soon is playing a part in his potential Gambit exit.

Is Chris Pine joining the DC Universe with Wonder Woman or Green Lantern?

14 hours ago

It looks like Chris Pine will definitely be joining the DC film universe, but will it be in Wonder Woman or Green Lantern?

Pine was linked to the role as Wonder Woman's love interest Steve Trevor earlier in the summer, before Comic-Con posters for the Green Lantern movie depicted Hal Jordan as looking quite similar to the actor.

TheWrap is now reporting that Pine has in fact closed a multi-picture deal for the DC universe, and will debut opposite Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman.

The Wonder Woman role would lend credence to suggestions that Pine has been cast as the dashing Us intelligence agent Steve Trevor.

Steve Trevor made his first appearance in the pages of DC Comics in 1941, and over the decades has been affiliated with both the Justice League and government security force Argus.

Go behind the scenes of the autumn's most gripping disaster movie Everest in this featurette

14 hours ago

A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Everest brings you to the mountains of Nepal for an incredible adventure.

The upcoming disaster epic tells the true story of 1996's Mount Everest disaster, when eight climbers became trapped in a brutal blizzard.

Universal Pictures' latest profile of Everest follows the actors and filmmakers on set in the snow-covered mountains of Nepal.

"It's a big-scale movie and it's not easy to shoot," star Jason Clarke says. "You've got to go to Nepal. That means you've got to shoot in the mountains. You need real weather and snow."

"[Director Baltasar Kormákur] wanted us to experience the elements," Jake Gyllenhaal adds. "He pushed us in that way."

Everest also features Josh Brolin, Robin Wright, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Sam Worthington in its story of the rescue attempts to save eight trapped climbers.

The movie will open in Us and UK cinemas on September 18. »

Danny Dyer really wasn't in the mood for Twitter jokes about his straight-to-dvd movies today

15 hours ago

You wouldn't mess with Danny Dyer on a good day, but the actor really wasn't up for any banter today, as a few social media users quickly learned.

As per all good Twitter dramas, the trouble began when the EastEnders actor revealed that he was on location filming somewhere near David Cameron's home, joking about his toilet needs. This will make more sense when you see the image Danny shared below.

Filming on location today......I think it's near @David_Cameron gaff. Shame.....I'm dying for a pony as well. pic.twitter.com/rJlTCkpudY

However, the tweet attracted a few sarcastic replies, with one user taking the opportunity to poke fun at Dyer's straight-to-dvd movies.

The Mick Carter actor responded by posting an image of the tweet sender, captioning it: "Didn't think it was ever possible for a man to be uglier than the fish he's caught. »

You will cringe through Cara Delevingne's excruciating Paper Towns interview on Us breakfast TV

16 hours ago

Getting her name wrong probably didn't help them, but the presenters of local morning programme Good Day Sacramento didn't waste any time in suggesting Cara Delevingne go and have a nap after an excruciatingly awkward interview.

The model and actress is on a global promo tour for new film Paper Towns, no doubt delivering dozens of perfectly charming interviews day in, day out. But this painful exchange began as the hosts introduced her as "Carla", hinting at what was to follow.

View the interview in all its cringeworthy glory below:

The American team were not quite equipped for some good old-fashioned British humour, as Delevingne delivered sarcastic responses when asked if she had even read John Green's book on which the movie is based, or shared any similarities with her character.

Things got even worse when a third host chipped in to say that previous interviews had been with a more enthusiastic Delevingne. »

A pair of first-look images from director Zack Snyder's superhero epic show the Dark Knight manning the Bat Signal and Superman squaring up to an unseen enemy.

Tom Cruise faces his toughest Mission Impossible yet... the wind in his hair

22 hours ago

He may have climbed the outside of the world's tallest building with ease; hell, he may have hung effortlessly from an airborne plane...

But yesterday (July 27), stunt-master Tom Cruise came face to face with arguably his biggest Mission Impossible yet... The wind. And his hair....

The windswept actor struggled to control his 'do at the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation premiere in New York last night.

The 53-year-old star returns as Ethan Hunt for his fifth stint in the blockbuster franchise, and has pulled out all the stops in a bid to top all his previous impressive M:i stunts.

He hangs from the aforementioned plane as it takes off, and tears across roads in a breakneck car chase (with Simon Pegg riding shotgun).

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation sees Hunt and his team face a threat from an organisation called 'The Syndicate', who are hoping to destroy the Imf and destabilise the global economy. »

You'll be surprised at just how much Star Wars has changed over the years

22 hours ago

One Star Wars fan has gone to great lengths to show how much the beloved film series has changed over the years.

Although many casual viewers may not notice, director George Lucas has made a number of edits to his films since A New Hope was released in 1977.

The changes go as far as back as the beginning of the series, when different versions of Episode IV were sent out to theatres, and further changes have come in the years that followed.

With each home video release, Lucas made alterations, some more noticeable than others. YouTuber Mercelo Zuniga has put together a definitive guide to the changes in an hour-long series of videos.

Star Wars will return to cinemas in December with The Force Awakens, the beginning of a brand new trilogy starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

They are joined by Adam Driver, John Boyega, »

See Kate Winslet's awesome recreation of iconic Titanic scene on Bear Grylls' Running Wild

23 hours ago

Kate Winslet made an awesome Titanic reference during her trek with Bear Grylls.

The explorer managed to get Winslet to recreate her iconic 'flying' scene from the 1997 blockbuster while abseiling down a cliff in Snowdonia, Wales for his Running Wild series.

Prepare for an adventure made for the movies.

Posted by Running Wild with Bear Grylls on Monday, July 27, 2015

Grylls asked Winslet to stop and spread her arms out wide, and it didn't take long for the actress to work out what he was trying to do.

Without further ado, she put on her best American accent and shouted: "Jack, I feel like I'm flying."

The scenes aired on Us TV for the first time last night (July 27), but unfortunately we're still waiting for news of a UK air date for the episode.

Watch Tom Cruise revisit Top Gun in brilliant Lip Sync Battle with Jimmy Fallon

23 hours ago

Tom Cruise definitely brought his A-game to his Lip Sync Battle with Jimmy Fallon on Monday's (July 27) edition of The Tonight Show.

The pair faced off against each other with renditions of songs by the likes of Meat Loaf, The Rolling Stones and The Weeknd.

"This is so ridiculous. I love it," Cruise said ahead of the battle.

The Mission: Impossible actor then launched into a performance of The Weeknd's recent hit 'Can't Feel My Face' to the delight of the crowd.

Fallon responded with 'Under Cover of the Night' by The Rolling Stones, while Cruise's second choice was Meat Loaf's 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light'.

At one point it looked like Cruise was about to bring out Bob Seger's 'Old Time Rock and Roll', a song he famously danced to in his underwear in 1983's Risky Business.

Is that insane Bond Spectre helicopter stunt even possible? The answer is yes, and here's why

28 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT

Spectre's latest trailer got everyone talking thanks to its jaw-dropping stunt that saw a helicopter complete a 360° corkscrew (aping the famous car flip from The Man with the Golden Gun).

The question on everyone's lips: can the heli-stunt be executed for real? Digital Spy quizzed Roger Gower, an Atp rated helicopter pilot with over 10 years' commercial experience, on Bond, Mission: Impossible and more to get the lowdown on some of Hollywood's most death-defying aerial stunts. The verdict?

Spectre's insane heli-corkscrew is actually possible

"Is it possible to pull off that Spectre stunt? Several military helicopters can do it - the Apache, Westland Lynx to name two. The Red Bull stunt helicopter does rolls and loops as well. Even if the helicopter wasn't meant to be able to go upside down, if you could keep a positive G-Force on the rotor system - difficult when upside down - most helicopters could »
