We’ve just received word that AMC are to launch in the UK with an exclusive deal with BT (British Telecom).

Fantastic Four – Marvel’s first superhero team – are back as we have never seen them before

16 hours ago

Bringing together an incredible ensemble cast of rising talent, direct Josh Trank reboots Marvel’s Fantastic Four as fans have never seen them before.

In 2012, director Josh Trank impressed audiences with his found-footage superhero adventure, Chronicle. Now Trank is once again at the helm of another superhero film, tasked with bringing Marvel’s Fantastic Four back to the big screen.

The Fantastic Four comic was created in 1961 by the father of superhero comics Stan Lee, along with Jack Kirby. They predated many of Marvel’s most famous comic book heroes including Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, and X-Men.

Unlike the 2005 and 2007 Fantastic Four films that had a camp quality and failed to impress audiences, Trank has sought to take the characters in a more realistic, and human, direction. Moving away from the blue and white spandex of the initial movie incarnation, Trank wanted to focus on the origins of this unconventional superhero family. »

Glassland DVD Review

16 hours ago

Director: Gerard Barrett

Cast: Jack Reynor, Toni Collette, Will Poulter, Michael Smiley

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 93 minutes

Following on in the steps of gritty realism dramas This Is England and Tyrannosaur comes Gerard Barrett‘s Glassland, a depressing glimpse into living with alcoholism.

Set in modern day Ireland, Jack Reynor stars as John, a quiet, almost shy, hardworking cab driver, saving every penny he earns to try to improve the living situation of himself and his mother. Stuck in a dilapidated house, their situation looks bleak, especially when you factor in his mother Jean’s (Collette) alcoholism. Driven by her hunger for drink, Jean disappears for days on end, leaving John to sit and worry about where she is. Desperate to help her, John contacts a local rehabilitation centre, but with sympathetic counselor Jim (Smiley) only able to house Jean for seven days, John’s only viable solution is to send »

Ufc champ Ronda Rousey to get her own biopic

19 hours ago

She kicked a whole load of ass at the weekend and managed to win a huge match against Bethe Correia in just 34 seconds, and now Ufc champ Ronda Rousey is getting her own biopic.

Variety are reporting that Rousey’s book My Fight/Your Fight has been optioned Paramount, who have hired Mark Bomback (The Wolverine, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes) to adapt it into a screenplay.

The word is that Rousey is set to play herself in the film. She’s obviously got some experience behind her after a pretty big supporting part in this year’s Entourage movie (playing herself), and previous roles in The Expendables 3 and the massive Fast & Furious 7.

“It’s a real honour to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the big screen”, producer Mary Parent told Variety.

Rousey is the first and current Ufc Women’s Bantamweight Champion, »

New Doctor Who series 9 iconic image revealed!

20 hours ago

Heads up Doctor Who fans and remember to… run! Today we’ve got the new official image from The Magician’s Apprentice, which is episode one from Doctor Who series 9, which sees Peter Capaldi return alongside Jenna Coleman for another exciting caboodle and concoction of stories for our favourite Time Lord.

The BBC’s flagship series returns to our screens on 19th September with a prequel episode airing on the 15th September, which we’re currently assuming will be on the BBC website or similar. What’s particularly interesting about this year is it’ll be the anniversary of its comeback in 2005 and so – like the 50th Anniversary year – we’re hopeful of a few extra treats as well as the return of Michelle Gomez and Ingrid Oliver.

Prometheus 2 will start shooting in January

20 hours ago

I can’t think of a movie that has divided critics, and my mates, more than Prometheus. The ultimate Marmite movie that you either loved or loathed in equal measure. The film did pretty well at the box-office (it is the most successful film in the Alien franchise with worldwide takings sat at over $400 million), and a sequel has been in the works for a little while, but we’re hearing via Total Film that Ridley Scott is planning to shoot the movie in January of next year, supposedly for a 2017 release.

We’re also hearing that both Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are set to return, though we can’t say the same of the famous Xenomorph.

“The beast is done,” Scott said in a recent interview. “Cooked. I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be »

New clip from The Gift, which hits cinemas Friday

20 hours ago

We have a brand new clip for this week’s big release The Gift, which our Kat reviewed very positively yesterday.

Here’s what she had to say:

With The Gift, Joel Edgerton has managed to craft a tense and twisting thriller.  The Gift is a tale that will provoke discussions after viewing about which character has the moral high ground, who is right and who is wrong? It’ll also make you think twice about reconnecting with that peculiar schoolmate.

Read the full review at the end of the link above. Joel Edgerton writes, directs and co-stars in the film opposite the talented Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall.

Check out the new clip, titled “Coming Onto Our Property” below. The Gift is in cinemas across the UK from Friday 7th August.

They’re making a Pez movie, based on the sweets. Yes, really.

21 hours ago

After the news that a film based on those Emoji ‘things’ was in the works from the guys over at Sony, it has now been revealed that Envision Media Arts are planning a Pez  movie. Remember Pez, the sweeties with the flippy top with a different character on the end that dispensed said oblong-shaped candy through its mouth? Yep.

Cameron Fay (Brother In Laws) has been hired for the unenviable task of crafting a screenplay around the property.

There’s no understanding if the film will be live-action or animated, but we’re guessing the latter.

Here’s what Envision Media Arts co-founder Lee Nelson had to say:

Pez candy is beloved by children and adults alike. With Cameron Fay we’ve created a world unique to Pez and a story that will touch the hearts of many.

Ema are an L.A. based company which have previously brought us rom-dram Celeste and Jesse Forever, »

Warner Bros. are making a Dungeons & Dragons movie

3 August 2015 10:59 AM, PDT

Following a near year-long lawsuit over ownership of rights, Warner Bros. have announced that they are bringing a new version of the Dungeons & Dragons gaming property to the big-screen.

“We are so excited about bringing the world of Dungeons & Dragons to life on the big screen,” said WB Pictures’ Creative Development and Worldwide Production boss Greg Silverman.

“This is far and away the most well-known brand in fantasy, which is the genre that drives the most passionate film followings. D&D has endless creative possibilities, giving our filmmakers immense opportunities to delight and thrill both fans and moviegoers new to the property.”

The property was previously made into a film back in 2000, a movie that starred Justin Whalin, Jeremy Irons and Zoe McLellan. It didn’t do very well critically or commercially, but the game is still incredibly popular.

Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game originally designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, »

Key villain scene cut from Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation

3 August 2015 10:48 AM, PDT

A massive, character defining scene featuring Sean Harris’s villain was cut from the final version of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, according to a new interview with the film’s director. Harris played the hugely convincing Solomon Lane in the blockbuster, which has had some pretty strong reviews across the board.

In an interview with Deadline, writer/ director Christopher McQuarrie revealed that a pretty decent sequence featuring Lane was cut from the finished movie.

My one regret is there is one real showcase scene with Sean and it didn’t make it into the finished film. Ironically, it was the scene that enticed Sean to do the movie in the first place. For a lot of reasons we ended up cutting it from the film. To his credit, Sean saw the finished film and was very understanding of it. Sean is a real pro, someone who came in with an »

Colin Trevorrow talks Jurassic World 2 details

3 August 2015 8:33 AM, PDT

Colin Trevorrow talks Jurassic World 2: Director Colin Trevorrow has been talking about some of the direction he’s potentially going to take the Jurassic World sequel.

Jurassic World is the third biggest film of all time, and films that are that big get sequels – Like Avatar, the biggest film of all time, which is getting three sequels, or the fourth biggest film of all time, The Avengers, which got a sequel earlier this year. Note – The second biggest film of all time will definitely not be getting a sequel, though someone once tried. Anyway, we digress.

Jurassic World 2, or whatever they decideto call it, will definitely be heading to cinemas in 2018, and the Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has been talking up that sequel, which is co-writing, though not directing.

Seems it won’t be set in a theme park next time.

Anne Hathaway & Robert De Niro in charming trailer for Nancy Meyers’ The Intern

3 August 2015 8:22 AM, PDT

We’ve got the lastest trailer for Nancy Meyers‘ delightful looking The Intern, which stars Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway.

Meyers writes and directs this comedy-drama that centres around Ben Whittaker (De Niro), a 70-year-old widower who has discovered that retirement isn’t all he thought.  Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Hathaway) and, as you’ll see from the trailer, they both start to learn a lot from each other.

This looks to have a good heart and although shows a lot plot-wise in this trailer, it’s set to hit its audience perfectly and another clever move for both lead actors both creatively and commercially – The latter being a bonus, of course.

Watch below now and scroll down for the poster and a couple more images:

Good Kill DVD Review

3 August 2015 6:54 AM, PDT

Director: Andrew Niccol

Cast: Ethan Hawke, Bruce Greenwood, January Jones, Zoë Kravitz

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 102 min

With Andrew Niccol’s (Lord Of War, In Time) focus firmly fixed on the contentious and unfamiliar world of drone pilots, Good Kill reunites the writer-director with his Gattaca star Ethan Hawke (Training Day, Sinister), to evoke concerns about the use of drone technology and morality in war.

Set it the scorched landscape of a Las Vegas airbase, Good Kill follows the life of fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot Major Thomas Egan (Ethan Hawke) as he fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, before going home to his wife (January Jones) and kids for the other. Perpetually distant at home and increasingly reliant on alcohol, Egan’s psychological strain only intensifies when his team – led by Lt. Colonel Jack Johns (Bruce Greenwood) – is placed in the hands of new CIA masters, unshackled »
