Bryan Singer Following X-Men: Apocalypse With This Sci-Fi Classic

1 hour ago

Classic science fiction is experiencing a renaissance right now, and it's a pretty good time to be a fan of authors like Albert Bester or Phillip K. Dick, as both are returning to wow audiences in the near future. Of course, what gathering of classic sci-fi authors would be complete without a Robert Heinlein project? Bryan Singer has apparently been thinking that exact same thing, and he's got his first post X-Men project already picked out as a result. The Hollywood Reporter has found out that Singer is going to move on to make an adaptation of Heinlein's 1966 classic The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress after he finishes X-Men: Apocalypse - the final entry in the "First Class" trilogy of X-Men movies. Arrow executive producer, Davis Guggenheim, is going to be adapting the Heinlein story into a film titled Uprising. The lame attempt at a more modern title aside, Uprising »

Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens Joins Beauty & The Beast

2 hours ago

Today was a rather big day for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast. Earlier this afternoon we learned that The Hobbit star Luke Evans is now in negotiations to play the villainous Gaston in the fairy tale film, and now word has come down that Dan Stevens has landed the role of the titular Beast opposite Emma Watson's Beauty. The Hollywood Reporter got the scoop on Stevens' attachment to Beauty and the Beast, noting that the actor is still in final negotiations to join the project. The Downton Abbey star is now the third British star to join the project, which is being directed by American Academy Award-winner Bill Condon.

Diablo Cody Is Rewriting The Barbie Movie, Probably To Give It Some Edge

4 hours ago

It's been nearly a full year since we last heard any kind of development on the upcoming Barbie movie... but you didn't think that would be enough to kill it, did you? Instead, Sony Pictures, Mattel and Parkes+MacDonald/Image Nation are still moving ahead with the project, and have even gone as far as to hire Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody to try and boost the in-the-works script. Deadline has the scoop on Cody's new gig, saying that the Juno writer will be taking the pen from Jenny Bicks - whose credits include the movie What A Girl Wants and television shows like Sex and the City and The Big C. It's noted that the studio and producers hired Cody because of her "unconventionality," and the belief that she can help make Barbie with a proper, modern tone. As producer Walter Parkes put it in an official statement, It »

Why Warner Bros. Is Willing To Gamble So Much On Superheroes

4 hours ago

Although the DC Cinematic Universe officially kicked off in 2013 with Man of Steel, next year will see this world expand exponentially in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, followed by Suicide Squad and two films per year in the following years until 2020. Though they kicked off their shared superhero universe much later than Marvel, Warner Bros. has demonstrated in the past year that they are dedicated to pooling a large portion of their resources into adapting DC Comics heroes for the big screen - and for Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, this is a risk well worth taking. Why? It.s all about the international audience. According to Variety, part of the reason superhero movies have been so successful in recent years is due to the film industry gaining a more global presence, with 70% of box office returns coming the foreign box office on many blockbusters.

Mr. Holmes Trailer: Watch An Elderly Sherlock Holmes Solve One Last Case

6 hours ago

Though he is certainly getting up there in years, Sir Ian McKellen has spent the last 15 years playing some of the most legendary characters in pop culture. We've seen him morph metal as Magneto, wave a magical staff as Gandalf, and now he's playing the most iconic detective of all time. Check him out in the first trailer for Mr. Holmes below. This isn't the first time that we've gotten a peek at Bill Condon's upcoming Mr. Holmes, with images and clips having previously been released, but it's still tremendously easy to be charmed by this trailer. The movie is telling a part of the Sherlock Holmes tale that we haven't seen on the big screen before - with the master detective nearing the end of his life - but it has a wonderful spark that comes from McKellen's presence and a stylish, period flair. Because the movie seems »

Beauty & The Beast Has Found Its Gaston

7 hours ago

The upcoming big screen rendition of the timeless tale Beauty & the Beast, which will star Emma Watson as the titular beauty, may just have added a key cast member. It appears that Luke Evans is closing in on a deal that will bring him on board the film as the story.s resident disdainful douchebag, Gaston. Yes, it looks like the same guy who bravely brought down Smaug the Dragon will be going one on one with a "Beast" over unwanted lustful affections towards Watson.s Belle. According to Variety, Luke Evans is in negotiations to star in the live-action dramatic adaption of Beauty & the Beast, which, amongst an array of other renditions, was famously animated by Walt Disney Animation Studios back in 1991. Evans would prospectively play the role of Gaston, a hunter and hunk of a human being whose hulking hugeness is matched only by his own nauseating narcissism. »

Did Seth Rogen's Old Office Have To Be Repainted Because Of The Pot Smell?

8 hours ago

Seth Rogen has never really been shy about his appreciation for marijuana. In fact, it.s become a common thread throughout his career, and regularly pops up in the cinematic adventures that he both stars in and writes with his partner Evan Goldberg. As such, the idea of him smoking up while working on his movies isn.t an outrageous idea . but if new rumors are to be believed, it may have had a bit of an effect on his environment. This is because it.s now being reported that his office at Sony was so pungent with the smell of pot that outgoing president Amy Pascal has had to delay moving into the same space. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pascal is currently transitioning from her former position as Sony Pictures. co-head of studio to an on-the-lot producer. In order for Amy Pascal to do this job to the »

The New Adaptation Of Stephen King's It Is Making Some Major Changes

9 hours ago

Knowing that Stephen King's It is headed to the big screen, fans of the book are left to wonder whether the feature adaptation will maintain the timeline of the novel, or if the time periods will be adjusted to modernize or drastically alter the story. From what director Cary Fukunaga reportedly said in a recent interview, it sounds like the time period could be different. Before we get to what was said, it needs to be noted that this information was passed from a reader to Bloody Disgusting from a Brazilian newspaper called O Globo. It was translated by the reader, so there's a chance the context shifted through that process.  The mention of the change in the time period was included when True Detective's Cary Fukunaga was commenting on Stephen King's approval of the adaptation: It.s really good to know Stephen [King] likes what we did.

Avengers 2 Just Dropped A Major Clue That Someone Will Die

9 hours ago

The latest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is the gift that keeps on giving as far groundbreaking revelations. Whether it.s our first substantive look at Vision, to whatever the hell it is that Black Widow now calls weapons, we just got treated to several clues on which people like us will nitpick with glee. However, in what could potentially be the biggest tidbit we could glean, a pair of lines uttered in the trailer may be a critical clue foreshadowing a key casualty in the film. Examine the evidence at the 1:25 mark of the trailer embedded below. The trio of Captain America, Hulk and Iron Man are framed rather deliberately into a wide group shot, looking exceptionally somber, as Stark pessimistically interjects, "No way we all get through this" -to which Cap replies, "I got no plans tomorrow night." It.s so deep and poetic in its setup »

Vision Looks High Tech And Awesome In The Avengers 2 Trailer

10 hours ago

For months, Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Quicksilver and Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch have been touted as the two big new superhero additions to the Avengers lineup in the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron - but that's really only because Marvel has been keeping one of its key new characters under wraps. As fans know, Paul Bettany is making his debut as the android known as Vision in the upcoming blockbuster, but the character has been kept hidden from all promotional materials. Well, up until today, as the final Age of Ultron trailer has finally revealed him... and he looks amazing. In classic Marvel Studios style, the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer saved a big surprise for its post-credits moment, and used the final seconds of the preview to reveal what you see above: a close-up of Paul Bettany's Vision, quite possibly being awoken for the first time. »

How Tony Stark Might Use An Infinity Stone To Create Ultron

10 hours ago

The latest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer broke today, and like the previous previews, it provided many more questions than answers. One of the biggest ones this time around concerns the titular villain.s origin. At this point, it.s well-known that Ultron is a flawed creation of Tony Stark.s, but what hasn.t been elaborated upon is specifically how he becomes the insane robot that.s been creeping us out since October. Most have assumed it is a freak mechanical development, but it.s possible Ultron.s sentience isn.t entirely due to human error. There might be an Infinity Stone involved. Back in late 2013, there was a rumor that one of the Infinity Stones would somehow give Ultron sentience, specifically the Soul Stone. Since then it has barely been discussed, but the new trailer potentially lends credence to that theory. Why? Check out what Tony grabs at »

Avengers 2: What Are Those Lightsaber Looking Things In The Trailer?

11 hours ago

We.re still reeling from the pure adrenaline that was pumped into us thanks to the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, which hit sooner than promised. There.s just so much goodness to process, it.s not even funny. However, one of the many notable things that were revealed in the new clip involve the mysterious pair of weapons unleashed by Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow. Could it be the case that Star Wars-inspired Lightsaber Knives are now a thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Putting all of our cards cards on the table, we have no particular inside info which would allow us to definitively conclude whether the things that Black Widow just activated were, in fact lightsabers, or, for that matter, knives. However, what is clear, is that these things are clearly defying any laws of physics under which our world is currently governed. From the »

Ryan Reynolds' Full Self/Less Trailer Is Darkly Futuristic

12 hours ago

What will it be like when future medical advancements make it possible to shift man's consciousness from that of a terminally ill body to the body of a healthy young man? Thanks to Tarsem Singh's new sci-fi thriller Self/Less, starring Ryan Reynolds, we can get a clearer picture of the aftermath of such a procedure. The bad news is that it's much darker than any of us ever imagined. The above trailer sees Damian (Ben Kingsley), a wealthy powerful, old man dying from cancer, be offered an extremely interesting opportunity by a mysterious individual named Albright (Matthew Goode). Thanks to advances in medicine, he has the chance to undergo a procedure to remove his consciousness from his dying "vessel" and replace it inside a much younger, fully healthy body. When he takes Albright up on the deal, he is transferred into his younger self (Reynolds). But while his »

He-Man's Battle Cat Will Look Like This In Masters Of The Universe

14 hours ago

After several years of rumblings and false starts, it appears that the first substantive look at the long-in-the-making new Masters of the Universe film has just dropped. In a reveal that would even surprise the magical disaster-worn citizens of Eternia, a seemingly casual tweet made by an important executive at Columbia Pictures would yield a huge, roaring reveal: Battle Cat! Yes, it appears that an image of He-Man.s trusty armor-strewn steed has hit and he is looking quite badass.   @danmillerNY @TheOneHansen @Guardians I totally agree!!! pic.twitter.com/6g6W18D9J7.

Why Avengers 2 Was A Nightmare, According To Joss Whedon

14 hours ago

"Shoot me in the face!" Many fanboys and gals might think directing Avengers 2 is any comic book nut.s dream come true, but when you.ve been at this as long as Joss Whedon has, this seems like the only appropriate response. The man behind one of the year.s most eagerly awaited blockbuster sequels recently spoke with SFX magazine about what it.s like tackling such a film, and, basically, the man.s exhausted.  As quoted by The Hollywood Reporter, Whedon calls the experience "a nightmare" and "the hardest juggling act I.ve ever, ever had to pull off." If you were in his shoes, you might feel the same way. He said,  They.re very disparate characters. The joy of the Avengers is they really don.t belong in the same room. It.s not like the X-Men who are all tortured by the same thing and have »
