Will Poulter to Play Pennywise in Cary Fukunaga's New 'It' Movies

12 hours ago

Watch out Tim Curry. Over at Variety they're reporting that Cary Fukunaga (of Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre, Beasts of No Nation, "True Detective") has cast the lead in his new It feature, which will be split into two movies. Sources have told them that young actor Will Poulter, currently 22 years old, is "in negotiations" to play Pennywise the evil clown. Poulter last appeared in The Maze Runner as Gally, along with A Plea for Grimsby, Glassland, We're the Millers and Son of Rambow. He's also in the upcoming The Revenant, which we'll all be watching this December. Apparently the audition won over Fukunaga and they couldn't say no. We've been following development on this It project for years, but with Cary Fukunaga bouncing all over between major projects after winning the Emmy for directing "True Detective", it's hard to tell if this was happening sooner or later. It now appears sooner might be the case. »

It's Official - Lionsgate is Making 'John Wick 2' with Keanu Reeves

13 hours ago

Woot! Lionsgate has officially announced development on John Wick 2 via a press release sent to press on May 4th. The release contains very basic information, but confirms that everyone is back: Keanu Reeves as John Wick, along with directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski as well as screenwriter Derek Kolstad all returning. The film is being sold at the Cannes Market coming up this month, which is why the news has arrived as a confirmation like this. No information about release timing is included in the press release, but it sounds like it might go quick if things go well in Cannes. As a huge fan of John Wick from last year (it was in my Top 10!) there's something particularly exciting about knowing more Wick is on the way. These are some of our favorite tweets about the news since Lionsgate confirmed the deal with the release: …that includes: »

First Look: Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma from 'Star Wars'

15 hours ago

It's a Chrometrooper! One of the many new characters we'll be meeting in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens is this bad guy (she's part of the "First Order" not the "Empire" anymore) nicknamed the "Chromtrooper", played by Gwendoline Christie (of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, "Game of Thrones"), who wears a chrome stormtrooper outfit and carries a big gun. The caption from the reveal at Vanity Fair (as part of the Annie Leibovitz photo spread) only states: "First Order officer Captain Phasma surveys the rubble following an attack." Sleek. I wish we could see her without the mask! Very interesting. Here's the new photo of Gwendoline Christie as the Chrometrooper - scanned from Vanity Fair. This goes with all the other new Annie Leibovitz photos taken for the magazine, including that epic cover shot. You can still catch the second teaser trailer for The »

More Mayhem in Third Trailer for 'San Andreas' with Dwayne Johnson

15 hours ago

"This whole chunk of land will be decimated...!" Warner Bros has debuted a third trailer for San Andreas, the big earthquake movie starring Dwayne Johnson they've been building up for a summer release. We've already seen two good trailers for this already, teasing some of the epic destruction and mayhem including a huge tsunami wave and pretty much all of Los Angeles collapsing upon itself. This definitely does look like a Roland Emmerich movie (even a spiritual sequel to 2012) but without some of the Emmerich quirks, for better or worse. Honestly, I'm curious to see this, something about the emotional angle that gets me. Enjoy! Here's the third trailer (see the first + second) for Brad Peyton's San Andreas, direct from Warner Bros: Watch the first teaser trailer for San Andreas here, and follow-up with the second trailer here after this one. San Andreas is directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island »

15 hours ago

"That villainous abominable misleader of youth!" It's him, Orson Welles! Ha! Mr. Bongo has debuted a fun new trailer for Orson Welles classic Falstaff Chimes of Midnight, or just Chimes of Midnight, the legendary filmmaker/actor's ambitious take on Shakespeare's Henry IV. Well, Chimes of Midnight is really Welles adaptation of his play Five Kings which was an attempt to combine Shakespeare's works Henry IV, V, VI and Richard III into a single play. "One of the most radical and groundbreaking of all Shakespeare adaptations, Chimes at Midnight was Orson Welles’ favourite of his films" and is now getting a restored re-release (in cinemas in the UK) for its 50th anniversary. Fire up the old footage in the new trailer below. Here's the new re-release trailer for Orson Welles' Falstaff Chimes of Midnight, found via The Playlist: Orson Welles' Falstaff Chimes of Midnight was first released in 1965, though »

Here's the Rest of Annie Leibovitz's 'Star Wars' Photos for Vanity Fair

19 hours ago

Happy Star Wars Day - it's now May the 4th and everyone is celebrating! Including even Vanity Fair, going all out with their latest issue featuring a cover shot of Han, Chewie and the new gang, plus an entire photo spread shot by Annie Leibovitz. What?! I know! The photos have been unveiled in full this morning, and they're rather revealing, including our very first ever look at Adam Driver in costume on set (as far as we know he plays Kylo Ren). We also get to see more set images featuring director J.J. Abrams and a look at Lupita Nyong'o with her facial capture rig, meaning she's definitely playing some kind of alien. Vf states she's playing a character named Maz Kanata. Take a look at all of the impressive new shots revealed below. Here's the initial set of Annie Leibovitz shots for the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »

First Photo: David Ayer's Task Force X 'Suicide Squad' Assembled

3 May 2015 6:08 PM, PDT

Assembled and ready to kick ass. Ready to kick the Avengers' ass? Maybe. David Ayer has tweeted out the first official photo of the Suicide Squad crew in costume from his upcoming DC Comics' Suicide Squad movie, which is now filming up in Toronto. We finally get a look at everyone in the line-up, and all of their wild outfits, including (seen from L to R): Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. We recently got a first look at Jared Leto as The Joker, so that pretty much covers everyone. From this first look, I'm sure Harley Quinn is going to be every geek's favorite character in 2016. Here's the first official photo for Warner Bros' Suicide Squad, »

Han, Chewie + The New Trio on Vanity Fair's Latest 'Star Wars' Cover

3 May 2015 5:54 PM, PDT

The Empire Reboots! Is that really the bold, eye-catching headline Lucasfilm wants on the cover of Vanity Fair? Is the new Star Wars saga really being dubbed a "reboot" or is that just mumbo jumbo they threw on there to sell magazines? Who knows. Vanity Fair has unveiled a new cover shot photographed by Annie Leibovitz showing Han and Chewie (Harrison Ford + Peter Mayhew) sitting with two new guys: Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, and Bb-8 as Bb-8. Yes, I'm including Bb-8 as part of the new "trio" even though Oscar Isaac as X-Wing pilot Poe is missing from this cover. It's a cool shot and the best part is that Leibovitz has taken even more photos, and more will be revealed once the magazine is on stands. Woot. Here's the first of many cover shots revealed by @VanityFair today featuring the new Star Wars cast: You »
