Leonard Nimoy's Son Is Making A Documentary About Spock

53 minutes ago

It.s been a little over a month since the loss of Leonard Nimoy, and the wound still feels quite exposed. The beloved actor and artist touched fans with not only his acting and portrayal of Spock in the Star Trek franchise, but also with his beautiful words of acceptance beyond the screen. It is because of his expansive fan base and inspiration that a documentary about Nimoy.s life and the character whom he brought to life took fruition. And no better person to produce and direct the film than Nimoy.s own son, Adam Nimoy. The project hopes to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the cult-classic sci-fi franchise which aired for the first time on September 8, 1966. According to Variety, Adam Nimoy announced his plan for the documentary last week to play tribute to the Vulcan hero. Nimoy told Variety: This will be a tribute to my dad »

A Superman Villain Just Said Horrible Things About Christopher Reeve

1 hour ago

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } One of DC's most respected characters of all time, Superman, is beloved by nearly one and all. The same can't be said, however, for the actor who played Clark Kent in the 1978 feature film Superman and its subsequent sequels. Yep, that's right. Apparently Christopher Reeve didn't leave a fuzzy impression on Jack O'Halloran, who played the villain Non in the first two films, and as a result the actor recently said some not-so-good things about him. It's not necessarily shocking to think Non isn't a big fan of Superman, but we never expected the actor behind the villainous character would actually have any serious problems with The Last Son of Krypton. Turns out we were wrong. Here's what O'Halloran had to say about him in a short chat with TMZ: Christopher was a young young-minded guy. »

1 hour ago

Vincent D'Onofrio will soon be seen portraying one of the most terrifying villains of the Marvel universe, as his performance as The Kingpin will be unleashed upon the world when Daredevil hits Netflix on April 10th, but he's now evidently wrangled an antagonist role in a much different kind of setting. New reports are coming in saying that the actor has signed on to play play the main baddie of the upcoming The Magnificent Seven remake. This news comes to us from Variety, which says that D'Onofrio is currently in talks, but doesn't really provide any details about his character.

11 Major Things We Learned From The Set Of Spectre, The New James Bond Movie

4 hours ago

The pressure is high. Sam Mendes is on his fourth day of shooting Spectre in Mexico City when press arrived on the set, and rain was derailing the day. The crew already shot earlier sequences involving Daniel Craig.s 007, Stephanie Sigman.s Estrella, a fierce explosion and an on-foot chase sequence. Mendes still has a lot to do before he jets off to film in London, and the production schedule leading up to the film.s November 6 release is just as hectic. But the filmmaker and his producers are determined to raise the bar after Skyfall.  When Mendes revealed the next James Bond movie would be titled after the franchise.s most notorious supervillain syndicate, expectations were already high. How will Spectre, which was involved in multiple Bond films of the past, be modernized? Will we see the return of classic characters? Will the infamous Blofeld pop up? Will it »

Watch The Fast & Furious Crew As The Cast Of Bambi In Hilarious SNL Mock Trailer

4 hours ago

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } Dwayne Johnson brought his A-game last night for his hosting gig on NBC's Saturday Night Live. This was his fourth appearance as host and among the many skits, of which included a reprisal of his iconic The Rock Obama character, was this most hilarious new Disney movie trailer of a live-action remake of Bambi featuring the cast of Furious 7. Have a look below and get ready to laugh. If you're anything like me, you found yourself laughing quite a bit throughout the ridiculous mock trailer above. Needless to say, Johnson as a live-action Bambi was hilarious in itself but his continuous terrible deer and wildlife puns took things to the next level. I don't know which was worse (or better for that matter), his saying the hunters are going to “pay dearly” or his referring to himself and the rest »

More Action For Miss Moneypenny? Spectre Producers Open Up

17 hours ago

When last we saw Naomie Harris as the new Moneypenny in Skyfall, she was taking a leave from the field and resigning to be the secretary to the new M (Ralph Fiennes). If you thought that was it for the character.s adrenaline junkie lifestyle as we head into Spectre territory, don.t count her out.  Along with a group of press, we spoke with James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson while covering the Mexico City set of Spectre. According to them, Miss Moneypenny is still very much involved in the plot of the new movie. Said Broccoli, You can.t keep this one behind a desk. This Moneypenny is very active. She is key to the story and key to helping Bond on his mission. She.s not deskbound.  There.s a reason the Moneypenny reveal was made at the end of Skyfall. If you recall »

Watch The Massive Power Of Scarlet Witch In New Avengers 2 Footage

28 March 2015 12:39 PM, PDT

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } The blockbuster of the summer Avengers: Age of Ultron is almost upon us and with that said it's time to bring a little hype to Scarlet Witch. We've seen some small clips and a few stills of the goth-looking hex-artist/superhero (we never said mutant!) but now it's time to meet her. Check out the massive power displayed by Ms. Wanda Maximoff in the below "Super Siblings" featurette. It's pretty clear from the above clip that Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and her twin brother Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) will both be forces to be reckoned with in Joss Whedon's upcoming Avengers 2. Visually, she is somewhat gothic looking, and is described on the inside as being connected and grounded with the universe. Let's be honest, though, it's her powers, which include telekinesis among other things, that will certainly make this character an influential »

How Many More Wolverine Movies? Hugh Jackman Just Told Us

28 March 2015 12:10 PM, PDT

Last we heard from Hugh Jackman, he made it fairly clear he did not want to give up his signature role as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise. But, looks like Jackman may be letting go of his adamantium claws a little sooner than we had previously thought.  Wolverine ...One Last Time. Hj A photo posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on Mar 28, 2015 at 10:40am Pdt Jackman has spoken, "One Last Time". And I think it is pretty safe to assume that this is in regards to his final solo-Wolverine film since word is he will only be making a quick cameo in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Though it.s hard to say goodbye to one of the original X-Men of the film franchise, Jackman has certainly paid his dues. This year marks the 15th anniversary of his role as the smart-mouth Logan with his first turn back in 2000 in Bryan Singer »

How Joss Whedon Feels About The Flash And X-Men Comparisons To His Quicksilver

28 March 2015 10:05 AM, PDT

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } With Quicksilver to show up in Avengers: Age of Ultron in just over a month, fans are likely to have lots of thoughts and comparisons to that of his X-Men: Days of Future Past counterpart. Which actor fit the character better, which character looked cooler, who held truer to the character of the comics, etc. Director Joss Whedon shared a few of his thoughts on this very subject and it sounds like he's pretty confident in their ucoming McU rendition of Pietro Maximoff. A recent BuzzFeed article detailed the Avengers director's thoughts on the fact that his upcoming Aaron Taylor-Johnson version of Quicksilver is arriving after Evan Peters already portrayed a live-action version of the superhero in X-Men: Days of Future Past and post DC's very popular series The Flash. Here is what he had to say about it: There.s going to be an »

27 March 2015 7:32 PM, PDT

It has all been leading up to the Day of the Dead. It’s Sam Mendes’ fourth day of shooting the opening sequences of the new James Bond movie, Spectre, on location in Mexico City. Thousands of extras (1,500 to be exact), donning traditional face paint, parade down the street in celebration of the Mexican holiday. They’re moving to the beat of the drummers banging away on an ornamented stage surrounded by acrobats. And emerging from within all the raucous is an epic chase between 007 and his target.  This is the only day throughout the entire production of Spectre that members of the media are able to attend. So a barrage of journalists, both foreign and domestic, are crowding the balcony at the Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico to get a glimpse of the action in Zocalo Square below. We were on hand and, trust us, »

X-Men: Apocalypse Is Probably Adding Yet Another Classic Female Mutant Hero

27 March 2015 5:16 PM, PDT

X-Men: Apocalypse has been accumulating a diverse selection of mutants this week. On Tuesday we learned that Wolverine, an adult Storm and Gambit would be making cameo appearances, and the next day it was announced that Lana Condor had been cast as Jubilee. Now Psylocke is the latest female hero that has been added to the 2016 blockbuster.s lineup.  Film writer Jeff Sneider said on Meet The Movie Press today that she will be the latest "B-team mutant" that Bryan Singer has added to X-Men: Apocalypse. An actress hasn.t been found yet to play her, but if it.s not leaked by a press outlet beforehand, presumably we can expect Singer to announce the casting on his Instagram account like he did with Condor, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ben Hardy. Psylocke.s civilian identity Betsy Braddock made her comic book debut in 1976 in the Marvel UK series Captain Britain. It »

27 March 2015 5:03 PM, PDT

This time last month, we saw Birdman, Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance take home top honors at this year's Academy Awards; and it surprised us more than a little bit. While we here at Cinema Blend enjoy surprises, we also don't mind hedging our bets as to what will be the next big thing at Hollywood's golden honors. We've had some time to assess the playing 2015 field a little further than our previous handicapping session, and we're glad to say we have a mix of repeats and new kids in our pool. With that in mind, let's run down the 15 movies we really think have a shot at winning Best Picture next year. The Revenant Obviously we're going to start the list off with a picture from recent Best Director winner, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, especially considering this is his follow up to the technically impressive Birdman.

James Bond's Spectre Trailer Is Suspenseful, Mysterious And Incredible

27 March 2015 4:44 PM, PDT

Following up Skyfall is no easy task. Sam Mendes. first crack at a James Bond thriller produced the most lucrative chapter in the ongoing series, as well as a near-universally praised installment by critics and fans. 007.s producers wisely brought Mendes back into the fold for Spectre, which dropped its first footage below. Watch it now! "You are a kite, dancing in a hurricane," James Bond is told by the mysterious and deadly Mr. White, who we think that Bond (Daniel Craig) has been sent to kill. That doesn.t sound good for our favorite spy with a license to kill. We also learn in this brief but informative clip that 007 has a secret, which he has been holding close to the vest because he was unable to trust anyone. Do you think that will change any time soon? It.s interesting to learn that, unlike other Bond films, Spectre »

Transformers Has A Massive New Plan To Ramp Up Its Cinematic Universe

27 March 2015 3:06 PM, PDT

One look at the vast phalanx of comic book superhero films, genre novel adaptations and other chapter-centric properties is all the proof needed that we are in the midst of the tentpole era of the movie industry.

27 March 2015 1:46 PM, PDT

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } Mid last year it was announced Steven Spielberg would direct an adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's classic The Bfg. With a still only a small cast thus far announced, the project has most definitely generated some fan interest with the latest addition of Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader. The announcement of Hader's joining the live-action project came earlier yesterday and it looks as though he will be filling some pretty big shoes, literally. As reported by Deadline, the SNL comedian is boarding the film in the role of one of the giants. Dahl's original children's book follows a little girl by the name of Sophie who lives at an orphanage run by Mrs. Clonkers. She befriends a kindhearted giant known as The Bfg or The Big Friendly Giant and the duo, along with the Queen of England, venture out to bring down the terrible, »

27 March 2015 12:40 PM, PDT

Were you a little bit disappointed by the first Terminator Genisys trailer? If so, then Jk Simmons is here to turn your frown upside down, because he has stolen the first UK television spot for the upcoming blockbuster. Well, it also helps that there is tons of new action scenes in the clip, too. You check out the latest footage for Terminator Genisys below. It.s a start. The plethora of winks and nods to the James Cameron.s Terminator films in the first Genisys trailers hinted that it would make the same mistakes as Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines and Terminator Salvation. And while I.m not completely satisfied that won.t still be the case, at least we were able to get a deeper sense of the mood and characters with this new minute-long Genisys spot.  It certainly makes it easier to do that when you unleash »

Captain Marvel In Avengers: Age Of Ultron? Here's The Latest

27 March 2015 12:06 PM, PDT

At this point we might as well give Captain Marvel the award for Most Rumors Surrounding An Upcoming Marvel Movie Character. Besides speculation over which actress will be playing Carol Danvers in the McU, there were rumors even before her solo film was announced in October that she would debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Earlier this week, the rumor of her appearing in the May blockbuster’s post-credits sequence rose again, though it was unconfirmed. Now, only days later, another report as come out over a possible appearance, but this time it’s not looking good for the heroine. Sources close to the production have told Nerdist that Carol Danvers will not be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Host Jessica Chobot acknowledges that the often-mentioned post-credits sequence would be one way we could have seen her, but as it stands now it’s more likely »

What Simon Pegg Took From Roberto Orci's Star Trek 3 Script

27 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT

The upcoming third film in the current Star Trek series is chugging along, powered by the creative dilithium crystals supplied by one of the film’s stars, Simon Pegg, aka, Montgomery Scott. After a shakeup last year would see Roberto Orci, a key member of the current iteration’s creative forces bow out of the film, our new Scotty found himself in the engine room of the creative process alongside Doug Jung. So what remnants did Pegg decide to use from Orci's original script? Turns out, nothing at all. In an interview with Den of Geek, Simon Pegg takes a few moments away from promoting his role reprisal in this summer’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation to update fans on the state of the Star Trek threequel directed by Justin Lin. While Pegg has several major screenwriting credits on his CV (many of which are »

Why Fast & Furious 7 Is In For A Huge Legal Fight In Thailand

27 March 2015 11:12 AM, PDT

Furious 7 is poised to ride into theaters next weekend on a cloud of burning rubber smoke and adrenaline, likely breaking April box office records in the process. While it.s causing action fans in America to salivate at the prospect of cars parachuting out of an airplane, in Thailand it.s causing a huge legal fuss instead. Variety reports that the release of the James Wan (Saw) directed actioner has been delayed in the Southeast Asian nation due in part to one of its stars, Tony Jaa. Jaa hails from Thailand and is probably the most recognized cinematic martial arts badass in the world right now. In the court injunction that halted the Furious 7 release, originally schedule for April 1, Sahamongkol Films alleges a breach of contract against Jaa, Universal Pictures, and United International Pictures. This could lead to a lengthy legal battle and delay the film even further. »
