The Studios Are Going After People Who Have Downloaded Milla Jovovich's New Movie

4 hours ago

James McTeigue's Survivor wasn't exactly one of the biggest blockbusters on the block this summer, but that doesn't mean that the folks behind it are any less pissed off about piracy. To prove it, they've filed a copyright infringement suit against 16 individuals in Oregon who reportedly uploaded the film and allowed it to be downloaded "hundreds of thousands of times" via BitTorrent. According to Deadline, Avi Lerner.s Nu Image and Millennium Films filed the lawsuit back on August 20th, and while the plaintiffs don't have names quite yet, there are plans in the works to reveal them. Currently the production companies only have the IP addresses for those responsible for uploading the film, but the complaints notes that they are seeking a subpoena that will force Comcast to reveal the owners of the accounts. There is also apparently an offer on the table to the "John Does" stating »

Watch Everything Wrong With The Sixth Sense In One Video

5 hours ago

It.s now become the norm to poke and laugh at anything that M. Night Shyamalan tries his hand at behind the camera. To be fair to the naysayers, that.s only because he.s given them plenty of ammunition. But it shouldn.t be forgotten just how good his breakout Hollywood film was. In fact, The Sixth Sense is still a pop culture phenomenon to this day. That being said, there are still plenty of things wrong with it, as Cinema Sins have so helpfully noted for us. Fair play to the good folks over at Cinema Sins, because while they were able to spot quite a number of flaws and errors with the film, they were also able to admit that it still deserves mad props for its revelations and spooky set-ups. Within the video, they make the very valid point that The Sixth Sense probably wouldn.t »

Tom Hanks' The Circle Is Building A Truly Fantastic Cast

7 hours ago

Director James Ponsoldt is still coming up in the feature world, but one thing that he has proven in the last few years is that he definitely knows how to put a cast together. He paired Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul for the fantastic Smashed; brought Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley together for the first time in the great The Spectacular Now; and most recently he created a brilliant duo with Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel in The End of the Tour. Great as all those names are, however, they arguably pale in comparison to the group being put together for his Dave Eggers adaptation The Circle. We've been reporting about this developing project for a few months now, but today Deadline has revealed that the film has found its fourth and final lead. Because the ensemble is so impressive, we realized that now is the perfect time for »

The Maze Runner 3 Already Planning A Significant Leap For Its Story

8 hours ago

We.re still a few weeks away from Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials being released, but we.ve already been handed a rather important development regarding its own follow-up. Rather than picking up immediately after the sequel to The Maze Runner, it.s going to be set a whole year after.  Director Wes Ball made this admission to Collider, explaining that Maze Runner: The Death Cure will not just miss out a year of action, but that it.s also going to allow for quite a few important things to have happened off screen too. Ball declared: This next one will be cool because we.re gonna cut maybe a year later. Yeah, so it.ll be cool. Some thing have happened off screen, which is gonna make the movie feel even bigger. The first 30 minutes of Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials were aired at San Diego Comic-Con and proved »

Michael Fassbender's Macbeth Trailer Is Dark And Intense

9 hours ago

Something wicked this way comes, and it.s the new Macbeth trailer. Michael Fassbender plays the titular role in the latest adaptation of the Shakespeare classic. As we get closer to the year.s end and the fog clears off from the 2016 Oscar contenders, this film from director Justin Kurzel is rising up in the ranks. Watch the dark and stormy new footage below. This new Macbeth trailer makes the film out to be the Dark Knight of Shakespeare plays. The color palette and, obviously, the tone are dark; the symphonic accompaniment is dramatic and stirring; and the crescendo-ing chants mimic the "Deshi Basara" one from The Dark Knight Rises. But in all seriousness, it.s difficult not to get excited over this. For those who didn.t pay attention in high school English, Macbeth tells of the Scottish thane. He encounters three witches who foresee him to "be king »

Bourne 5 Has Already Found Its Villan

9 hours ago

A spy movie is only as good as its hero and its villain. In Matt Damon.s Jason Bourne, the franchise that bears his name already has a fantastic hero, and when the actor returns to the role for Bourne 5, he.s going to face off against one hell of an antagonist, or at least an actor who plays one hell of a villain. Variety reports that acclaimed French actor Vincent Cassel will play the primary baddie Jason Bourne must face off against in his next adventure. There aren.t a ton of details available about his role, but the 48-year-old actor will reportedly play a high-level assassin tracking the title hero. Whether or not he.s been sent after the amnesiac spy or is out for a little revenge on his own dime (it.s easy to imagine Bourne taking out someone important to the hitman), remains to be »

Andrew Garfield Knows You Didn't Really Like The Amazing Spider-Man, Read His Quote

10 hours ago

In retrospect, the Amazing Spider-Man turned out to be a failed experiment. It turned out that people weren.t really interested in seeing a rebooted version of the wall-crawler so soon after Sam Raimi.s trilogy, and to make matters worse the two movies are mediocre at best. It turns out that this thinking is not at all lost on star Andrew Garfield, who has pin-pointed the reason for why the films were ultimately disappointing: they tried to appeal to absolutely everybody. The actor has been talking about the Amazing Spider-Man movies a lot recently (thanks to the fact that he is on the press tour for his new movie 99 Homes), and it was while talking with The Playlist that the actor revealed his thoughts on why his Spidey adventures didn.t work out as well as we all hoped. Speaking to the idea of trying to please everyone, Garfield »

10 hours ago

We.ve already started dream casting Amy Schumer.s mom in her upcoming mother-daughter comedy, but we didn.t even consider who should play the maternal figure in her film with Jennifer Lawrence. Who could possibly mesh with these soul sisters. kooky, outrageously over the top, and infectious personality? How about Bette Midler? The singer-actress threw her name into the ring on social media when she Tweeted her suggestion for who to play the mom of Schumer and Lawrence. Spoiler alert: it.s her. She wrote, Amy Schumer & Jennifer Lawrence are co-writing a screenplay about sisters. Hmm, who could play their mother? She'd have to be Divine! .

If Oscar Isaac's Goal With This Interview Was To Convince Me He's Smart, Mission Accomplished

11 hours ago

As an actor, Oscar Isaac has been getting a lot of attention over the last year, and for good reason. This year he already starred in Ex Machina, Mojave, and the HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero. Later in 2015 he has Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and next year he will take on the X-Men as X-Men: Apocalypse’s eponymous antagonist. However, if you’ve been following his interviews, it’s clear that the man takes his craft seriously, but his latest quotes prove just how smart he actually is when it comes to understanding his projects. When asked by The Playlist about what he took away from his roles in X-Men: Apocalypse and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Isaac got deep by citing naturalism, Stanley Kubrick, greek tragedies, and kabuki theatre. Don’t take my word for it, check out his exact words: »

J.J. Abrams Wasn't Sure Harrison Ford Could Play Han Solo Anymore

11 hours ago

By the time Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in December, it will have been more than 32 years since we last saw Harrison Ford play Han Solo on a movie screen. That.s a long time. When we learned that he and other original cast members were returning to that far, far away galaxy, many fans asked themselves if Ford could still play the beloved scruffy-looking nerf herder. And we weren.t the only ones, as director J.J. Abrams had the same concerns. Talking to the Seattle Times about balancing his fan side and filmmaker side while making a Star Wars movie, as well as keeping the project grounded, Abrams discussed his concerns in this arena. But he also talked about how those fears didn.t last long, saying: What was incredible from my point of view was how apparently easily they flipped back into these roles. I knew »

The Kryptonian general.s corpse was glimpsed in the latest trailer for the 2016 blockbuster, and multiple reports indicate that the body be transformed into Doomsday.

He said: I wasn.t there. It.s a really awkward situation.I.m in the trailer for a movie that I didn.t work on. Shannon went on to say that Zod.s appearance in Batman v Superman: »

In the nine weekends since its premiere, Terminator Genisys has only managed to bring in $89.4 million in box office revenue through domestic distribution. With a budget of $155 million, and international markets seeming to be excited about the film, it looked like James Cameron was going to find the rights to the franchise gift wrapped on his doorstep in a couple of years.

Star Wars Is Going To Make A Stupid Amount Of Money From Force Awakens Merch

14 hours ago

This December, when Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally opens, it’s going to make a lot of money—some experts have already predicted an opening of historic proportions. But with a franchise as tie-in savvy as this one has always been, ticket sales are only a single piece of the puzzle, and new estimates foresee sales of merchandise pushing Lucasfilm’s profits from ridiculous numbers to truly mind-boggling heights. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Nollen, an analyst with Macquarie Securities, recently published a report that states, despite a decline in stock prices, Disney will be just fine. In fact, he suspects they will make a ton of money very soon. If Nollen’s estimations are correct, products linked to the Star Wars could bring in as much as $5 billion in just the next year. That’s an insane amount of money, but with »

14 hours ago

As seen in the debut trailer that was released yesterday morning, the new film Concussion centers on a controversial issue within the world of professional football . following the true story of a doctor who fights the system on behalf of players who have been irreparably damaged by the game. For die-hard football fans, this may be kind of disconcerting, as it may look as though the movie is taking aim at the beloved full-contact sport . but now writer/director Peter Landesman has cleared the record, revealing that Concussion draws a line in the sand between the great pastime and the massive National Football League.

Why Andrew Garfield Failed As Spider-Man, According to Andrew Garfield

16 hours ago

"I was never Spider-Man." So says Andrew Garfield. After Sam Raimi directed Tobey Maguire in his trilogy of films, The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel were not as well received by the public. Whether or not you believe Garfield was a poor choice for the character, the actor spoke out about his time in the role and thinks he failed in many ways.  Garfield reflected on his portrayal during a roundtable interview for 99 Homes, which also stars Michael Shannon and Laura Dern. According to Zaki.s Corner with Zaki Hasan, Garfield is pulling a Pierce Brosnan. Much as the former 007 thought himself ill-equipped to handle James Bond, Garfield tried to explain why he failed in certain capacities. He said,  I thought I was going to be Spider-Man, you know? I went into it going ... ego sh*t came in. It's like, 'Okay, here it is. I'm f**king Spider-Man. I f**king made »
