Cast of Joe Wright's Peter Pan Film Fills Out as Production Begins

2 hours ago

Warner Bros. announced the start of production on Joe Wright's Pan, a film said to be an origin story and darker take on J.M. Barrie's beloved character Peter Pan, and with it comes a list of the entire cast. Previous announced cast members include Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (Inside Llewyn Davis) as Hook; Rooney Mara (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) as Tiger Lily; Adeel Akhtar (The Dictator) as Smee; and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter. The casting of Mara as Tiger Lilly gained a certain amount of scrutiny, but it would appear the rest of Wright's cast has been filled in with a rather eclectic group of actors, including Australian Aboriginal actor Jack Charles (pictured) playing Tiger Lily's father known as The Chief. Other members include Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables) as Mary; Taejoo Na (The Kick) as Kwahu; Kurt Egyiawan (Skyfall) as Murray; Lewis MacDougall »

Jessica Chastain Rumored for Role in 'Mission: Impossible 5'

5 hours ago

We haven't heard much out from Mission: Impossible 5 as of late, which gives a new rumor that the production may be looking at Jessica Chastain as the film's female lead. The rumor comes from a site called Schmoes Know, which I've heard of, but don't really know much about so let's just keep this tempered for the moment. However, considering Chastain was lined up to star opposite Tom Cruise in Oblivion before scheduling forced her out this doesn't exactly seem too far fetched. There isn't too much we know about the film as of yet other than Christopher McQuarrie will direct, Cruise will return as Imf agent Ethan Hunt and it is set to hit theaters on December 25, 2015. However, if you keep an eye on McQuarrie's Twitter feed you'll see just how much traveling he's been doing as of late, mostly in Italy (some London), and answers one fan »

Box Office Predictions: 'The Other Woman' Hopes to Top 'Captain America 2'

6 hours ago

The Other Woman, realistically, needs $20 million to secure this victory. It's officially a "lull" week, the last week before the end of Aro; where the top twelve films should come in at a cumulative under $100 million. Last year for this timeframe the putrid (my opinion, don't be mad) Pain and Gain took the crown by hitting $20.2 million, right before being washed away forever by Iron Man 3. This year the battle is between two titles, The Other Woman and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and just like last weekend it could go either way. The reason I'm taking The Other Woman is demographic reach. The youngsters have had three weekends to see ol' Cap, while my first-place projection should bring in women and date night. It's not going to take much, so $16.5 million just might do the trick, though that is almost $3 million below tracking. I'm a risk taker. Has »

'Brick Mansions' (2014) Movie Review

6 hours ago

The city of Detroit is bankrupt, but in the year 2018 things have gotten even worse than that. One block of land has gotten so bad the city has decided to build a concrete wall in an effort to separate the "bad" from the "good". Brick Mansions gets its title from this portion of the city where drug dealers, gun runners and pretty much any other variety of lowlife can be found. The Mayor of Detroit, however, has an idea. He wants to level the whole of Brick Mansions with a neutron bomb, killing everyone there and building a new neighborhood atop the ashes. Good guy rightc The Mayor sends in Damien (Paul Walker) an undercover cop with a grudge ever since Brick Mansions kingpin Tremaine (RZA) killed his father years earlier. Damien is to team up with ex-con Lino (David Belle reprising the same role he played in the original »

New 'Godzilla' Trailers and IMAX Poster

7 hours ago

A pair of new international trailers for the upcoming Godzilla remake have arrived along with a new IMAX poster. I am a little confused on one thing though, so many of the posters seem to suggest Godzilla is attacking Japan in this film, but I thought it was going to be centered in San Francisco. Now I have to assume it will be both... rightc Godzilla gone globalc I'll find out soon enough as I have received my mid-May screening invite and I really can't wait and have my fingers crossed this thing delivers on what the trailers have been promising. As much as I try and avoid trailers it has been impossible to avoid them for this film as WB certainly seems to be quite confident in how good it is. A great sign for us.

Spoiler Alert! Third Hobbit Titled 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies'

8 hours ago

There was talk that the third installment in Peter Jackson's "Hobbit" trilogy may be getting a new title and today the director confirmed it on Facebook as The Hobbit: There and Back Again will now be titled The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Of course, just like everything with this franchise it appears the decision is driven by money as Jackson adds, "As Professor Tolkien intended, 'There and Back Again' encompasses Bilbo's entire adventure, so don't be surprised if you see it used on a future box-set of all three movies." So, when you see the first "Hobbit" box set, if it isn't titled "There and Back Again" you'll already know another one will be just around the corner. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters on December 17, here is Jackson's full Facebook message: Inside Information... Our journey to make The Hobbit Trilogy has »

First Trailer for Richard Linklater's 'Boyhood'

22 hours ago

Richard Linklater's Boyhood is my most anticipated film of 2014 and to think we're just over a couple months away from its July 11 release makes the anticipation all that more difficult to bear. Today the first trailer for the film arrived as we take a first look at the movie that was twelve years in the making. Filmed over short periods from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood is a groundbreaking cinematic experience covering 12 years in the life of a family. At the center is Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who with his sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), are taken on an emotional and transcendent journey through the years, from childhood to adulthood. Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette star as Mason and Samantha's parents. Check out the trailer below. I can't wait to see what the director of Before Sunset and Before Midnight has to offer us now. »

Johnny Depp's 'Mortdecai' Set for Early 2015 Release

23 April 2014 3:26 PM, PDT

In the wake of the poor critical reception and box office performance for Transcendence you better believe all eyes will be on Johnny Depp's next vehicle Mortdecai, which again features Depp in a role unlike those that have made him so popular in the mainstream, though the fact this is a comedy may work in his favor. amz asin="0141003774" size="small"David Koepp, who previously directed Depp in 2004's Secret Window, directs and co-wrote the screenplay (based on Kyril Bonfiglioli's three-novel anthology) with Eric Aronson and Peter Baynham (Bruno, Arthur) and Depp is surrounded with an impressive cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, Olivia Munn, Oliver Platt, Aubrey Plaza and Jeff Goldblum. As for the story... here's the official word: Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp »

Meet Burt of Burt's Bees in Trailer for New Documentary, 'Burt's Buzz'

23 April 2014 2:42 PM, PDT

Hitting theaters on June 6 and On Demand a day earlier is the new documentary Burt's Buzz centered on Burt Shavitz, the face and co-founder of Burt's Bees. You know, the lip balm, lotion and whatever else all of us have used at some point in our lives. Produced and Directed by Jody Shapiro, the doc is said to explore Burt's life and just watching the trailer I feel something of a kinship with the man and his final statement: "A good day is when no one shows up and you don't have to go anywhere." Of course, hard work breeds interest and Burt is a celebrity, a moisturizing celebrity at that... a not-too-common category of stardom. The film looks like a rather simple story of a reclusive man that found fame in a weird roundabout way and is dealing with it however he knows best. I don't expect there to »

Timur Bekmambetov Directing a 'Ben-Hur' Remakec Sounds about Right

23 April 2014 1:38 PM, PDT

When William Wyler directed Ben-Hur in the late 1950s, and before it went on to win 11 Oscars, including Best Picture, I wonder what the target audience wasc Now, 55 years later, Paramount and MGM are readying a remake with a screenplay written by John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) and Keith Clarke (The Way Back) for Timur Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) set to direct. Who is the target audience this time and is it the same as it was back in 1959c amz asin="B004RJ43ZI" size="small"Based on the 1880 novel "Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ" written by Lew Wallace, the story follows a falsely accused nobleman who survives years of slavery to take vengeance on his best friend who betrayed him.

First Pictures from 'Jurassic World' and News of Animatronic Dinosaurs

23 April 2014 11:28 AM, PDT

The first pictures from the set of Jurassic World have arrived offering looks at Bryce Dallas Howard in an unspecified lead role and a couple shots from the set. Production of the film is underway in Hawaii and director Colin Trevorrow talks of the shoot with Entertainment Weekly saying, "Yesterday I was under a construction crane with Chris Pratt, covered with dirt, eyeballing the exact height of the dinosaur trying to kill him... We both cracked up laughing. Sometimes you just have to stop and let the joy take over." Trevorrow also spoke with Empire regarding the upcoming film and confirmed there will be animatronic dinosaurs used for the film and also spoke of the overall theme saying, "It's about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time, and so now we've brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, »

Fugazi, Fugazi... Just the F-Words from 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

23 April 2014 9:11 AM, PDT

Someone apparently counted every single use of the word "f**k" in The Wolf of Wall Street and the tally was 544. Now I didn't count each instance in the following edit of Martin Scorsese's film, but Screen Junkies went ahead and made this "Just the F Words" supercut and while you might think you know what you're in for... you're not. yt id="mn49DiI9Gag" width="500" Now, probably more to your expectations, here's Screen Junkies' "Honest Trailer" for the film where they get into the more explicit details. yt id="BzpIB5TJ7LI" width="500" »

'The Other Woman' (2014) Movie Review

23 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT

The Other Woman is a movie of montages, music and quite a few well-placed punchlines as it's not exactly a home run comedy, but it's a solid double. Directed by Nick Cassavetes with a screenplay by relative newcomer, Melissa Stack, the film makes good use of its female leads and situations to find comedy in the emotional hurt caused by a cheating husband (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) as his wife (Leslie Mann) ends up teaming with two of his mistresses (Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton) for revenge. If The Other Woman lacks anything it's an editor with any kind of confidence, believing what they have here is actually funny. Not only does the film open with a montage, but it's overloaded with them and when it's not a montage, it's one song after another, several of which having nothing to do with what's going on. In fact, the music is a curious »
