An Adventure Time Movie Is In The Works, Get The Details

9 hours ago

If you'd asked anyone if they'd thought The Lego Movie would have sparked an animated renaissance for Warner Bros, they probably would have laughed. Yet here we are, as the film has spurred not only the Lego brand into spawning a couple more films, but it also may have given form to another feature film adaptation. Get ready, folks, because it looks like Adventure Time is coming to the big screen in the near future! Deadline has a report that Pendleton Ward's highly successful Cartoon Network series is going to Warner Bros for a full length feature film. The reason The Lego Movie may figure so importantly into Adventure Time's feature film treatment is that Chris McKay, one of the executive producers of the Lord and Miller hit, is co-producing the Cartoon Network film. McKay is an experienced hand when it comes to animation at both »

6 Iconic Leonard Nimoy Moments From The Star Trek Films

14 hours ago

The passing of science fiction icon, Leonard Nimoy at the age of 83 is probably the biggest blow dealt to the massive legion of Star Trek devotees who have long-followed the venerable, nearly 50-year-old epoch-shaping franchise. Perhaps, no other single individual in the history of television and film left quite as a profound imprint on popular culture as the Nimoy.s portrayal of Spock would accomplish. With Spock.s signature pointed half-Human, half-Vulcan ears and obstinate adherence to cold, hard logic, it made him arguably one of the most influential characters of all time. While Mr. Nimoy.s contributions to the medium of television is vast as it was poignant, we decided to take the time to celebrate some of the man.s greatest cinematic moments as Spock with the Star Trek franchise. Take a trip down memory lane with us. 6. Star Trek: The Motion Picture - This Simple Feeling This »

Margot Robbie Impulsively Slapped Leonardo DiCaprio During Her Wolf Of Wall Street Audition

14 hours ago

Margot Robbie has admitted that she became so engrossed during her audition for The Wolf Of Wall Street that she actually slapped her eventual co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, across the face. Like, really hard. However rather than being completely offended by the assault, DiCaprio was hugely impressed, and it eventually led to her being cast in Martin Scorsese.s opus on greed and capitalism. Robbie recalled this incident to Harper's Bazaar, the publication that she graces the front cover of this month. The 24-year-old Australian actress, who despite her scant years has showcased an on-screen intensity and savvy that suggests she is well on her way to being a firm member of the Hollywood elite, stated that she slapped DiCaprio as she was desperate to do something that would make her stand-out. I.ll leave her to tell the rest of the delightful tale: In my head I was like, .You »

Finding Dory: What We Know So Far

16 hours ago

Sequels. A few years back, Pixar found themselves heavily involved in the sequels game. Toy Story 2 wasn.t the exception anymore. Cars begat Cars 2. Monsters Inc. gave way to Monsters University. A third and fourth Toy Story became realities. And now, Finding Nemo is getting a sequel. or, at least, a spinoff. Pixar.s summer release in 2016 will take audiences back into the water with everyone.s favorite forgetful fish. Finding Dory will reach theaters 12 years (!!) after 2003.s Finding Nemo introduced us to a nervous clown fish, his suffocated son, and the amnesic blue tang fish that helped them on their rescue mission. But what has changed between now and then? A lot, both on the screen, and off. Let.s dive in to Pixar.s latest sequel with our What We Know So Far guide to Pixar.s Finding Dory.

Thor Looks Like He's About To Murder Someone In This Avengers 2 Poster

16 hours ago

Bringing together the ultimate cast of characters, including Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, Hawkeye, Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Nick Fury, Maria Hill and many more (including the long-awaited Vision, as well as the menacing technologically-driven supervillain Ultron), Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron is likely to be an epic action bonanza like no other. Getting some solo treatment in the upcoming film's latest poster is none other than the Asgardian warrior and God of Thunder, Thor. As you can see in below, the ultra-jacked up superhero is looking mighty serious, as if ready to murder someone. Just in case we had any doubts that Thor would be ready to kick some ass in the new Avengers sequel, the above poster certainly reassures us. Looking suspiciously over his shoulder, while the enemy robots swarm around him from all angles including overhead, we're curious to see what Joss Whedon has in store »

Mr. Fantastic's Powers Are Causing An Unusual Problem For The Fantastic Four

17 hours ago

The Fantastic Four has been cementing itself as a superhero movie that.s moving as far away from its comic book roots as possible. The tone is more grounded, the main antagonist.s background has been changed and the first trailer looked more like a preview for a sci-fi flick than a comic book adaptation. Now team leader Mister Fantastic.s powers are causing enough of an issue that the production has adjusted what his elasticity will look like on the big screen. While chatting with Empire Magazine (via ComicBookMovie.com), actor Miles Teller implied that fans shouldn.t expect Reed Richards. stretching powers to be represented the same way in the reboot as seen in the comics or previous movie series.  If he's this gummy guy slinging around, it looks ridiculous. What does that feel like for a young guy, to have no control over his body? So far »

Will Smith's 10 Great Performances, Ranked

17 hours ago

In West Philadelphia, born and raised; Will Smith was bound to be a star one of these days. And boy, did he ever deliver. While having a show as wildly successful as The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, as well as an equally fruitful musical career, Smith always seemed like a perfect fit for the movie industry. But in the past couple of years, the man who used to regularly get jiggy on the Fourth Of July weekend has taken a bit of a low profile when it comes to his career. With Focus making its debut, and some interesting future projects on the horizon, it could be the start of a Big Willy Renaissance in Hollywood. As such, here.s hoping that if Will Smith is committing to the movie star game once more, he.ll continue to pick projects more like the performances on this list . and less »

19 hours ago

It's been known for some time that the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens will look to use returning cast members from the classic Original Trilogy to pass the torch to a new set of heroes. However, if rumors about the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel prove true, then the film may also be passing another torch regarding its narrative style to utilize Abrams' signature use of flashbacks. Now, it seems that one strong source of rumors has pointed to an actor being cast as a younger version of an iconic Star Wars character for that very purpose. Warning: Potential Spoiler material ahead! Seriously, this could be a major reveal if proven true and you have been warned. Proceed With Caution! According to a recent report from Making Star Wars, claiming insider access to the production, actor Robert Boulter has been cast in the Star Wars sequel for the role »

Red Sonja Movie Is Happening, Get The Details

20 hours ago

The long-touted remake of Red Sonja has taken a huge step-forward over at Nu Image/Millennium Films after Christopher Cosmos was hired as the film.s writer.  The Hollywood Reporter have alleged that plans are currently afoot for the character, who was previously brought to the big screen back in 1985, to return to cinemas at some point over the next few years. Of course, that all depends on how well the studios respond to Christopher Cosmos. updating of Richard Fleischer.s sword and sorcery action film. At the moment no further details regarding where Cosmos might take the film have been teased, while there also hasn.t been any inkling about which filmmaker might join Cosmos on this Red Sonja reboot. It.s not surprising that the studios are trying to bring Red Sonja back though, as she is, after all, from Marvel Comics. You.ve got to strike while »

Fifty Shades Of Grey Failed In Japan, This Is Why

20 hours ago

With all the hysteria surrounding Sam Taylor-Johnson's controversial Fifty Shades of Grey, one would assume it was not only a huge hit in the U.S. but also abroad. And for the most part you would be correct, as the erotic drama had huge openings in many countries around the world, breaking records in France, Russia, Ireland and the UK. One country however, Japan, didn't buy into the massive hype of the Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan-led romance movie. Here's why.   According to THR, there were three major factors: poor choice of release date; a delayed release of the new Japanese-language editions of the books; and an R-15 rating (ages 15 and older permitted) re-edit with blurred out portions of the film's sex scenes. Shigeto Arai, managing director of promotion at film distributor Toho-Towa, explains:   We thought that an R-15 version would broaden the audience »

What Thor Brings To The Table In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

20 hours ago

Amazing as it is to see all of the core members of The Avengers unifying on the big screen, it.s certainly less narratively fulfilling if there isn.t any real reason for all of the heroes to be together. Easy as the excuse "They.re all friends" is, the truth is that the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron will benefit from actually providing time to give reason for each character.s individual presence. Fortunately, this appears to be very much in the cards for the blockbuster . at least for Thor, who will be bringing a very interesting element to the table in the fight against the movie.s titular villain: his Asgardian knowledge, and ability to travel between realms. Chris Hemsworth delved into this very topic while on the Avengers 2 set, which I was given the wonderful opportunity to visit alongside a small group of other film journalists last »

American Sniper Is About To Topple An Incredible Record

21 hours ago

Despite the bevy of headline-making news item, American Sniper continues to display an impressive fortitude on the box-office battlefield. The film is still sitting comfortably despite being in business for over two-months and now seems set to nab a rather huge, yet somewhat head-scratching record. From the looks of things, Sniper is well on track to dethrone The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 as the top grossing domestic film of 2014. Yes, the 2014 domestic moviegoing crown will soon replace Katniss Everdeen.s revolution-inspiring three-finger salute with a more simple in-unison shout of "Oorah!" As observed in a report from Deadline, American Sniper, estimated at $322.59 million during the mid-week, is currently hot on the heels of displacing the $336.45 million made from the November 21-premiering Mockingjay. With that displacement, Sniper would also nab itself the #30 spot currently held by Mockingjay in the all-time domestic gross charts, nestled just below the $336.53 million from 2007.s Spider-Man 3, »

Bruce Willis' Next Film Is In Serious Financial Trouble

21 hours ago

Bruce Willis has been filming his next movie, Wake, in the subzero temperatures of Cleveland, Ohio, but there.s one major issue that.s derailing production. No, it.s not the frozen tundra. The real John McClane isn.t afraid of frostbite. It.s the fact that there.s no more money to proceed, and if there.s one thing Bruce Willis appreciates, it.s a paycheck. The Greater Cleveland Film Commission released an official statement (which can be read on Cleveland.com) confirming the news. It said, in part, that Benaroya Pictures is looking to "find the remaining funds" and remedy the situation as quickly as possible. The statement also read that they are "optimistic" that production will resume in "approximately 2-3 weeks." A source close to the production told Deadline that things were headed towards this financial disaster for a while. As the trade notes, calls are currently »

See Eddie Redmayne Follow Up His Oscar Role By Playing A Woman

22 hours ago

If there’s one thing Eddie Redmayne knows how to do, it’s completely lose himself in roles. He first broke through by playing Marius in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables, he became an intergalactic royal in the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending, and his latest transformation into the Als-afflicted Stephen Hawking won him his first Oscar. But his role in The Danish Girl will surely earn him even more attention from the Academy next year.  The first look at The Danish Girl has hit the web (via Yahoo Movies), which features Redmayne in a reunion with Hooper as Lili Elbe. This Danish artist was a pioneer of the transgender community, as she was one of the first known people to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Elbe was born Einar Wegener, and was publicly announced as Einar’s sister. She stopped painting after making the transition, »

What Suicide Squad Will Borrow From The Dark Knight

22 hours ago

No jokes. It was a mandate we had heard about the developing DC Cinematic Universe, and it.s one that flies in stark contrast (get it?) to the lighter movies of Marvel. Yet, David Ayer.s Suicide Squad is going to have a Joker (in Jared Leto), and the maniacal Harley Quinn (in Margot Robbie). It has to be humorous. Right? Maybe not. Knowing that it.s very early in the process, Margot Robbie spoke with MTV about the upcoming super-villain movie, and what fans can expect. She was asked specifically about the tone of the material, as that can go a long way toward preparing an audience for the end result. Specifically, Robbie was asked if Suicide Squad would resemble Christopher Nolan.s somber, serious Batman trilogy, or Joss Whedon.s The Avengers. She explained that Squad likely will borrow its tone from Nolan, saying: I think on a »

What Will Be Different About Thor In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

27 February 2015 1:02 AM, PST

Staying true to the character.s comic book origin as a somewhat Shakespearean royal figure, Thor has earned a reputation as being a bit of an uptight figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is partially because of his arrogance problem, but also just because he kind of has a lot of duties to attend to throughout the galaxy, and has little time for foolishness. This was true through the end of Thor: The Dark World, but, interestingly, this attitude is going to be getting a bit of a facelift in Joss Whedon.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Last summer, I had the pleasure of being a part of a small group that was invited to visit the set of the forthcoming mega-blockbuster, and it was while talking with Chris Hemsworth that we learned that Thor.s energy in the movie will be much more relaxed than we.re »

The Crow Now Looking At Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston To Star

26 February 2015 9:57 PM, PST

When you've had a steady TV gig like Jack Huston did on Boardwalk Empire, it's always nerve wracking when that gig comes to an end. While trying to transfer to films is always an option, it doesn't always work for actors primarily known for their work on the small screen. Lucky for Huston though, he has a gig playing the lead in Ben Hur already lined up. And if Relativity Studios has their way, he could be filling the recently vacated lead in the remake of The Crow. Deadline has the inside track on information that pegs Jack, paternal nephew of Angelica Huston, in the lead role of Eric Draven. Draven, who becomes the eponymous hero after being slain alongside his pregnant fiancee, lives a second life for vengeance against the criminal scum that took away his ultimate happiness. The 1994 Alex Proyas-directed original is a cult classic, with Brandon Lee »

Alien 5 Will Not Discard The Last Two Movies, Get The Details

26 February 2015 8:48 PM, PST

Neill Blomkamp has, to no one's surprise, been in the news quite a bit in the past couple of weeks. Unfortunately for poor old Chappie, who's set to make friends with the world next week, the film press seems a little more interested in talking about Blomkamp's next project. Considering that project deals with reviving the Alien franchise for one last ride, who can blame them? Especially when the latest word from the man himself is that this new, and presumably final, chapter will work within the continuity of the original series run. French site AlloCine had the chance to speak with Blomkamp on a red carpet, and despite previous reports from certain outlets that suggested the film would be overriding the events of Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection, the District 9 director made it clear that the complete opposite is the case. He told the reporter, I.m not »

26 February 2015 7:38 PM, PST

One can only imagine the amount of pressure that's been building on Anthony Mackie over these last few months. After all, the guy is in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he couldn't really tell anybody all about it. Fortunately, the big news finally broke with the movie's poster reveal earlier this week, and that has allowed Anthony Mackie to publicly celebrate: Oh... It just got real! This poster is definitely going on the wall!!! Sam Wilson is back baby.@Avengers #Cutthecheck pic.twitter.com/768d8j0Buw.
