Flash Gordon Movie Is Confirmed For Blast Off

7 hours ago

Sometimes the Internet breaks a rumor that sits on the fence of truth and lies. The less tested a source is, the more skeptical people get, and sooner or later the truth makes itself known. Last week, we reported one such scoop detailing that that a reboot to the Flash Gordon series was in the works. You can put one on the scoreboard for that untested source, as it has been confirmed that 20th Century Fox is looking to succeed where Universal Studios and the SyFy Channel haven.t: Flash Gordon is back, and he just might save every one of us. The Hollywood Reporter grabbed the official scoop, naming John Davis as the producer and the writing team of J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay as the project.s authors. Payne and McKay are also currently working on the script for Star Trek 3, so already they.re building themselves »

Batman Vs. Superman Adds Cyborg To The Cast

7 hours ago

Henry Cavill is Superman. Ben Affleck is Batman. Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman. Those are the three superheroes we know about that will be showing up in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman vs. Superman, but the list just seems to keep growing. We've been hearing rumors for months and months about more heroes joining in on the fun and today it appears we might have confirmation: it looks like Cyborg will be in the Man of Steel sequel. So who is going to play him? According to Variety, the answer to that very big question is Ray Fisher, a young actor actually better known for his theater work than projects on the big and small screen: The trade notes that the character won't have a big role in the movie, but notes that his inclusion is another step towards a future Justice League movie. In addition to the actors mentioned above, »

It was only last month that it was announced G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M.

Watch Darth Vader, Boba Fett And Other Star Wars Characters Dance To Pop Songs

11 hours ago

Disney World's Star Wars Weekend is approaching! The annual event, which actually runs for a series of weekends in the Florida theme park, is set to begin next month. What better way to warm up for it than by watching your favorite Star Wars characters dance to pop music? These videos are from the (formerly) recurring "Hyperspace Hoopla" dance-off event, which was held at Disney's Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekends, and featured various characters from the films showing off their moves in hilarious fashion. After all, what's funnier than Darth Vader and a bunch of Storm Troopers dancing to "You Can't Touch This"? Or Michael Jackson's "Bad"? Or Chewy dancing to "Hey Ya!" Points to all of these dancers, not only for their dancing skills, but for their ability to pull off these dance routines in those costumes, which probably make it pretty hard to see. You'd think »

Hero Blend #14: 10 Things You May Not Know About Spider-Man

11 hours ago

In the last 51 years, Spider-Man has not only stood the test of time as a comic book hero, but has become a true pop culture icon. Not only are comics about the webslinger still some of the most popular issues that Marvel produces, the character has been a part of films, television series, novels, radio shows and even Broadway. And yet, there are still some details about the character that a lot of the general public doesn.t know about. With Marc Webb.s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already out in theaters nationwide and heading to the United States next weekend, I.ve decided to dedicate this week.s episode of Hero Blend to answer some questions that non-Spidey fanatics may not know about. To help me in this cause, I.ve once again invited Cinema Blend creative director Mack Rawden . a comic book newbie . on to co-host and do »

Kevin Feige Claims Thanos Has Been Cast

11 hours ago

It.s been almost two years since The Avengers ended with a scene showing the evil Chitauri turning to a mysterious purple fellow who could only smile at the camera, completely vexing just about every non-comic reader in the audience. And yet his absence from Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier was ominous. Is Thanos coming? And if so, who will play the mad Titan? Kevin Feige, noted raconteur, has held court on this topic before, claiming Thanos would show up with motion capture in Guardians Of The Galaxy. But apparently there.s a heavier flesh-and-blood element to him as well. When Empire Magazine (via Cbm) asked Feige, he revealed, "There is an actor. I.m not sure we want to announce it yet." Which begs the question: who would dare step into the shoes of Marvel.s most menacing interstellar villain? Surely Feige isn.t »

The Third Hobbit Movie Is Now Called The Battle Of The Five Armies

15 hours ago

The third film in the Hobbit series is about to begin its ad campaign, but we.re eight months away and haven.t seen a trailer yet. This only seems weird when you consider Peter Jackson.s Middle Earth chronicles have been teased out over long periods of time, filmed in big gulps and trailered ad nauseum. A culprit for this delay might actually surprise and/or anger some Tolkienists: the title is being changed. In a Facebook post, Peter Jackson has explained that the third chapter is going to be called The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies. Jackson eloquently explains as such: Our journey to make The Hobbit Trilogy has been in some ways like Bilbo's own, with hidden paths revealing their secrets to us as we've gone along. There and Back Again felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of »

Godzilla Launches All Out Assault With International Footage, IMAX Poster

15 hours ago

Since Comic Con last year, we.ve been getting a steady stream of posters that have slowly unveiled the look and feel of Gareth Edwards. modern take on Godzilla. From an artistic rendering of the creature.s shape to posters that focused on the size and scale of the creature, we.ve been primed for monster action for almost a year. We.re now entering the home stretch, and Warner Brothers is making sure it.s using every weapon it has to promote what they hope will be an international blockbuster. Today is a good day to be a Godzilla fan. Thanks to IMAX, we have another new, more complete look at the iconic monster.s new face. It must be noted that the posters for Godzilla have to be some of the most artistic promotional tools ever crafted for a film of its kind. With a cast like this »

Sin City 2 Teaser Overdoses On Babes, Blood, Black-And-White Imagery

15 hours ago

Nearly a decade has passed since Robert Rodriguez drove audiences through the sleazy, sexy world of Frank Miller.s Sin City, but by the looks of the trailer for the upcoming sequel, very little has changed. After all, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For still has gorgeous, scantily-clad ladies like Jessica Alba: And Eva Green: Creating all kinds of headaches for tough guys like Josh Brolin: Joseph Gordon-Levitt: And Ray Liotta, to name just a few. But if you didn.t tell anyone, you would assume . based on the look and texture of this 60-second clip . that Robert Rodriguez.s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was coming out mere months after his original Sin City movie. The black-and-white color palette, disrupted by shocking patches of color (like red lipstick, or sticky blood). The deep use of shadows. The techno-wicked soundtrack, lending an air »

Cameron Diaz Bares All In Barely Safe For Work Sex Tape Trailer

16 hours ago

The cloud. No one understands it. And as the new Sex Tape green-band trailer points out, it causes all sorts of problems! The cloud is where Jason Segel accidentally uploads the sex tape he just filmed with his wife, Cameron Diaz, in an effort to spice up their suddenly drab marriage. Slap on a thong and some roller skates, roll camera, and rekindle the passion, right? Only, as you can tell in the Sex Tape trailer, the saucy clip ends up in everyone.s inbox thanks to that damn cloud. And now Segel and Diaz have to stumble through numerous painful pratfalls to retrieve the footage . is that even possible? . and save themselves some embarrassment. As the clip promotes, Sex Tape comes to us from the brains behind Cameron Diaz.s equally raunchy (but far less "Skin-emax-y") Bad Teacher. Director Jake Kasdan is back behind the camera, reuniting Teacher co-stars »

Kristen Wiig Comedy 'The Heart' Runs Into Financing Issues

16 hours ago

There were a lot of promising pieces in place for The Heart, an action-comedy written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, Oscar winners for The Descendants. They had Kristen Wiig attached to star alongside Sam Rockwell, two names in a film where a broke woman has to travel cross-country with a stranger to deliver black market organs. Allison Janney was also aboard the $18.5 million-budgeted film, financed by Indian Paintbrush. Suddenly, however, the studio is having buyer.s remorse. The Wrap reports that the studio attempted to shop the project to distributors but received very little interest, suggesting that they are the only ones who don.t know they have a bomb on their hand. Now they.re examining their options, one of which involves dropping the budget down to a more manageable $13 million. Another, however, involves finding a different financier to take the project off their hands completely. »

Joss Whedon Talks Ultron, Calls the Evil Robot 'Genuinely Disturbed'

17 hours ago

Comic book fans understand Ultron . or, the different versions of Ultron that they.ve read about in different issues dating all the way back to 1968, when the robot first appeared in Avengers. But film fans who adored Joss Whedon.s Marvel.s The Avengers might not know what Earth.s Mightiest Heroes will have to face in next summer.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so these fresh comments from Whedon will be insightful. and more than a little tantalizing. Whedon was speaking with Empire Magazine as part of the mag.s summer movie preview, and while The Avengers: Age of Ultron doesn.t open this year, it casts a long enough shadow over the season that we.re already anticipating what the Marvel crew will be able to bring to theaters next May. When asked to discuss Ultron.s personality in this next movie, and what they are trying »

Jessica Chastain Rumored For Mission: Impossible 5

23 April 2014 8:35 PM, PDT

Jessica Chastain is without question one of the most talented actresses working in Hollywood today - and she has the Oscar nominations to prove it - but one part of the industry she has really yet to explore is the live-action franchise blockbuster. Back in 2012 she was offered the chance to play what ended up being Rebecca Hall's part in Iron Man 3, and ultimately turned it down, and we haven't heard about her going out for any similar opportunities since. But that time may have come to an end, as new rumors are suggesting that Chastain may wind up playing a big role in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5. While I would highly recommend taking this story with a grain of salt, ShmoesKnow claims that an inside source has told them that the next installment of the long-running action franchise is looking to have Jessica Chastain sign on for »

Miramax And AOL Team Up To Let You Watch Movies For Free

23 April 2014 6:50 PM, PDT

Despite the protests of filmmakers far and wide, portable entertainment is growing by leaps and bounds. What used to be an exclusively theatrical medium has now become an increasingly portable affair. With an expanding customer base comes an expanding marketplace, and AOL is the latest company to join in on the digital revolution. They've signed a deal that grants them access to Miramax's film catalog. For those who like to watch Kill Bill while checking their email, your day has officially come. Announced in an item from The Hollywood Reporter, the deal would see AOL become a free, ad-supported platform for their customers to potentially enjoy films like Pulp Fiction, Rounders, and yes, even Shakespeare In Love. This, of course, is in addition to the studio already having a foothold with Netfilx and Amazon Prime Instant Video - though the major difference between AOL's free platform and the other pay »

Scarlett Johansson And Lupita Nyong'o May Join Idris Elba In Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book

23 April 2014 4:58 PM, PDT

Warner Bros.' adaptation of The Jungle Book is starting to pick up steam and now has Andy Serkis ready to work some mo-cap magic, but Disney's competing project based on the same source material is already in its casting stage. Last month we learned that Idris Elba had entered negotiations to play the villainous tiger Shere Khan in the Jon Favreau-directed feature, and now new reports say that the project is close to adding two of the most popular actresses currently going in the film industry. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that 12 Years A Slave star and Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o and Scarlett Johansson have both entered into negotiations for roles in the new re-imagining of Rudyard Kipling's most famous story. What's interesting about the potential roles for both actresses is that they are both voice-over parts. Nyong'o is reportedly up for playing Rakcha, the mother »

The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 3 Is In The Works

23 April 2014 3:29 PM, PDT

The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants movies are what you might call "modest successes." Released in 2005 and 2008 respectively, the two films were made for only about $25-30 million each, and both made north of $40 million in worldwide box office totals. These aren't the kind of numbers that are going to get a studio drooling about the idea of another sequel, which explains why we are only hearing about a third movie in the series six years later. Deadline is reporting that the production company Alloy Entertainment is now in the process of developing a feature adaptation of Sisterhood Everlasting, the fifth and final book in Ann Brashares' long-running young adult series. The plot will pick up 10 years since we last saw the protagonists and will begin with all of them having gone separate ways. Tibby, who was played by Amber Tamblyn in the first two movies, decides that she »

William Hurt Exits The Gregg Allman Biopic 'Midnight Rider'

23 April 2014 2:38 PM, PDT

Back in February, the production of the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider was struck by tragedy. While filming a scene on a railroad, a few members of the film crew got stuck on the tracks and struck by a train. The incident resulted in many injuries and the death of Sarah Elizabeth Jones, the movie's 27-year-old second camera assistant. Shooting has been on hold ever since, and today it's being reported that the cast is starting to break off. According to Deadline, William Hurt - who was set to play an older version of Gregg Allman in the film - has been forced to walk away from the picture. While some may see this as a sign that Midnight Rider may never actually start back up again, one of the reporting site's sources says that the film was already considering recasting the part as well as some others.

This Wolf Of Wall Street 'F' Word Supercut Is Hilarious, Surprisingly Safe For Work

23 April 2014 1:23 PM, PDT

Back when Martin Scorsese unleashed his decadent, no-holds-barred Oscar nominee, The Wolf of Wall Street, on a holiday movie crowd, the film was celebrated for its foul mouth and dirty mind. In fact, we reported that the film set a record for the amount of curse words used (as well as becoming Scorsese.s highest-grossing film to date). But what if we told you you could see a Safe For Work supercut of The Wolf of Wall Street.s "F" words. That.s right! Bring the kids around the computer, rank up the volume, and play the above clip. We.re not kidding. It.s safe. Get it? Fine, fine. It.s a gag. But a pretty clever one posted by ScreenJunkies . the guys who are best known for bringing the Honest Trailer approach to massively popular movies. In fact, they gave The Wolf of Wall Street the Honest Trailer »

X-Men: Days Of Future Past TV Spot Reveals A Beast Transformation And Toad's Wicked Tongue

23 April 2014 1:22 PM, PDT

While it's still not exactly clear how James McAvoy's Professor X is walking around in the previews for X-Men: Days of Future Past, at the very least we now get to see why Nicholas Hoult's Beast is walking around looking normal instead of blue and fuzzy like in the end of X-Men: First Class. This new TV spot for the upcoming comic book movie reveals that the hero will be going through at least one more transformation scene in the franchise, only this time he will be on the battlefield instead of in a lab. Interestingly enough, this spot also gives us our first look at the new Toad in action. We haven't seen the character on the big screen since Halle Berry's Storm blasted him with lightning towards the end of 2000's X-Men, but here he is back, younger, and being played by Evan Jonigkeit.
