7 hours ago

15 years ago today, the doors of the Coyote Ugly saloon swung open, turning a low-key Jerry Bruckheimer-produced coming of age film into a beloved cult hit.

Dark Knight Rises cinema shooting: James Eagan Holmes faces potential death penalty in final sentencing phase

11 hours ago

James Eagan Holmes faces the possibility of the death penalty for carrying out the Dark Knight Rises cinema shooting in 2012.

A Colorado jury agreed to consider capital punishment today (August 3) as Holmes's murder trial moves into its final penalty phase.

In July, Holmes was convicted of 24 counts of first-degree murder, 140 counts of attempted first-degree murder, and one count of possessing explosives.

His legal team and family had argued that he was not guilty by reason of insanity prior to the verdict being rendered on July 16.

Holmes killed 12 and injured 70 others when he opened fire at a late-night screening of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, 2012.

If sentenced to the death penalty, Holmes's execution will make him the first person put to death in the state of Colorado since the 1997 lethal injection of convicted murderer and rapist Gary Lee Davis. »

We've already seen a movie based around Lego, while sometime soon we'll be sitting down to watch a Play-Doh film - and now Hollywood is turning to the popular candy dispenser Pez as inspiration for a big budget project.

Jurassic World 2 story teased: Weaponised dinosaurs, off-island action and open source tech

14 hours ago

The Jurassic World sequel won't be arriving in cinemas until 2018, but we're already starting to get drip-fed a few morsels of information about what it might entail.

Director Colin Trevorrow, who'll be returning to write the follow-up with Derek Connolly, offered up a few story hints about what we can expect.

Remember Vincent D'Onofrio's character Hoskins talking about sending dinosaurs into war zones? It sounds a lot like Blue and her raptor crew might end up getting weaponised off-island.

Trevorrow told Wired of his thoughts on Jurassic World 2: "[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That'll get old real fast."

"I feel like the idea that this isn't always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to »

Mark Hamill is certainly a joker when it comes to signing autographs for fans

15 hours ago

There's no doubt that Mark Hamill has given out plenty of autographs during his career, but it seems the Star Wars actor certainly has a sense of humour when it comes to signing his name.

Imgur user Raggedrabbit recently shared a set of autographed Star Wars cards online - all signed by Luke Skywalker himself - but Hamill had left more than a standard squiggle.

The 63-year-old actor had written a joke or sarcastic comment on each card, referencing everything from Star Wars to Grease.

Hamill will reprise his role of Luke Skywalker in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, alongside old co-stars Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher.

The trio will be joined by new cast members including Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie and Daisy Ridley.

Hamill also recently reprised his role of The Trickster in The Flash, and will voice The Joker again for Batman: The Killing Joke. »

The cast of Fantastic Four haven't even seen their own movie yet

20 hours ago

The cast of Fantastic Four have been busy promoting their new movie, but it turns out they haven't even seen it yet.

It's only a matter of days before the reboot hits cinemas on both sides of the Atlantic, but Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell and Michael B Jordan are still in the dark about the finished product.

Mara told BBC Newsbeat: "I'm going to try to see it opening night with a real audience."

Critics have not been given the chance to see the film ahead of its release, which is often seen as a sign that bad reviews are to be expected.

Asked if he wants to prove the critics wrong, Teller said: "We haven't seen the film either. Rarely are films of this size critically well-received.

"This is not a movie we're going to go on (review website) Rotten Tomatoes and it's going to be at »

Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange: Everything you need to know, from release date to spoilers

21 hours ago

Though The Avengers: Age of Ultron felt much more like the closing of a chapter, it was the release of Ant-Man last month that officially concluded Marvel Studios' Phase Two.

We've all heard plenty about Captain America: Civil War, which will kick off Phase Three, but what of the movie that will follow in its sizable footsteps?

Below, Digital Spy rounds up everything we know so far about Doctor Strange.

When's it out?

Doctor Strange is scheduled for release on October 28, 2016 in the UK, and a week later in the Us on November 4. Principal photography is due to start in November in London.

The release date has already been pushed back from the formerly announced July slot, presumably to accommodate the star's notoriously packed schedule.

What's it about?

Guardians of the Galaxy was widely billed as Marvel's "anti-superhero movie", and Marvel Studios certainly have form with roguish anti-heroes given »

Paramount exec backs a sixth Mission: Impossible movie: 'Ethan Hunt deserves another film'

2 August 2015 6:08 PM, PDT

Tom Cruise may have already let the news slip, but now Paramount has spoken publicly about the possibility of another Mission: Impossible movie.

Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore has supported Cruise's announcement that work has begun on a sixth instalment in the franchise.

6 jaw-dropping Tom Cruise stunts from the Mission: Impossible movies

"We're very happy to be developing this movie with Tom," Moore told Variety. "There's no question that Ethan Hunt deserves another film."

The news of another film in the franchise follows an opening weekend that saw Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation easily take down competition from the likes of Vacation and Ant-Man in the Us box office by taking $56 million.

If filming does begin next year as Cruise told The Daily Show it would, the sixth Mission: Impossible movie could be the fastest sequel to come out of the series yet, after the first five films had at least four years between them. »
