Set Pic From ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Reveals….

11 hours ago

Larry Fong, the skilled cinematographer on the 2016 release Batman Vs. Superman and other such films like 300 and Watchmen, two other Zach Snyder helmed projects, has tweeted our very first set pic from the Man Of Steel sequel, revealing a blurry figure in a business suit.  There’s a lot of gossip around the net that this could be our very first look at Bruce Wayne, but frankly, it could be anyone. Still, we’re intrigued.

I hear film is dead. But can I please finish this movie first? #film #panavision #kodak pic.twitter.com/WblE2alyuy

Larry Fong (@larryfong) April 15, 2014

As you may have guessed, shooting is underway on the mega-budgeted feature, which stars Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman. Gal Gadot will turn up as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg is the new Lex Luthor!

It’s released in cinemas on 6th May, 2016.

The Post Credits Sting In ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Will Surprise You

12 hours ago

I was hesitant to reveal in that headline as to what the post credits sting in The Amazing Spider-man 2 is because it is serving more as a featured clip, rather than a tease for a future movie. Well, it is for a future movie, but one that will be with us in just a few short weeks. We saw The Amazing Spider-man 2 a week ago, and there was nothing attached to it, but sources over at Empire have revealed that an exclusive clip from X-men: Days Of Future Past will feature in prints of the film across the UK from today.

We’ve not seen it, and cannot tell you what it is, but the general concept is kinda cool as this is cross-studio marketing like we’ve not seen before. The big question is that this signal a future Sony/ Fox team up? Could Spidey and the »

New Images Arrive for Cruise’s ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

12 hours ago

Two new images have arrived from the near-future action film Edge Of Tomorrow which starts Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt as soldiers attempting to save Earth from an alien takeover. The two intense new images certainly offer the wartime action this film is set to bring audiences, with Cruise and Blunt heavily armed and ready for battle.

An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault and no military unit in the world seems capable of overcoming them – that is, until Major William Cage (Cruise) finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop, reliving the day of his death over and over. As Cage uses this opportunity to improve his fighting skills, thanks to Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt), he finds himself getting closer and closer to figuring out just how these aliens can be defeated.

Based on the novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, »

Anna Paquin Back In ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’

14 hours ago

It was reported earlier this year that Anna Paquin, one if the main stars of the original trioligy, had been cut from the latest X-men film. During the edit of X-men: Days Of Future Past, director Bryan Singer confessed that due to time constraints he has unfortunately had to cut the only scene to star Paquin’s mutant alter-ego Rogue. It would seem that something has changed though as Fox have confirmed that she will make an appearance albiet in a much smaller cameo role.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed the True Blood actresses name in the credits of the final trailer. If you didn’t then why not re-watch it here and see for yourself.

Considering the time-travel element of the story that will essentially bridge Singer’s branch to the Matthew Vaughn’s, it was not at all surprising that someone got cut. Let’s just »

Sharon Stone Joins ‘American Ultra’

20 hours ago

Hollywood heavyweight Sharon Stone has joined the cast of action comedy American Ultra.

Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars as Mike, a hapless, lazy stoner, happy with his boring life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart – Twilight). However, unknown to Mike and everyone around him he’s actually a secret agent. When his past flashes before his eyes the realities of the responsibility of his power surface, especially when he’s called in to support a deadly government operation. Co-starring Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), John Leguizamo (Kick-ass 2), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Stone joins the cast as Victoria Lasseter.

With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) directing and Max Landis (Chronicle) behind the script this could go either way – brilliantly witty and action-packed…or a little lacklustre. We’ll have to wait and see.

American Ultra is already in production. It currently has »

Bruckner To Direct ‘Friday The 13th’ Reboot?

21 hours ago

It looks like the reboot of popular slasher franchise Friday The 13th may have found its director in the shape of horror pro David Bruckner.

Bruckner already has genre films V/H/S and The Signal under his directorial belt, so if talks go according to plan he should be in prime position to bring Jason Voorhees (the monster who launched a thousand Halloween costumes) back to the big screen.

Of course, whether another reboot will be a worthwhile addition to the Friday The 13th family or just a cash cow remains to be seen. After all, we’ve had one pretty pointless reboot already in 2009. There’s no word on the direction the project will take yet either, apart from the obvious machetes, hockey masks and lashings of blood. But it’s definitely all new and not a sequel to the 2009 reboot – although is it a reboot of the reboot? »

Rom-Com With A Twist In ‘Obvious Child’ Trailer

22 hours ago

Tired of all the summer blockbusters heading your way? Probably not, as there are some great ones this year. But, you may still find some time to enjoy the little folks, including this quaint little spin on the rom-com genre, Obvious Child. It follows a stand-up comedian in the middle of major life changes who gets pregnant after a one night stand. Starring former SNL cast member Jenny Slate as Donna, she must wrestle with her new found predicament as well as telling the father about her plans for an abortion.

Although stated enough in the trailer, it does look refreshingly honest with the kind of gentle laughs that don’t outweigh the more dramatic moments. It’s already built quite the momentum from appearances at a number of film festivals, and will be getting a wider release this summer in the Us.

Obvious Child is to be released on »

International Trailer For Paul Haggis’ ‘Third Person’ Released

22 hours ago

After a debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, and a slot booked at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, Paul Haggis’ latest venture Third Person now has an international trailer.

Set in Paris, Rome and New York, Third Person follows three different love stories, all connected with each other in some way. Michael (Liam Neeson), Sean (Adrien Brody) and Rick (James Franco), the three main male characters, are leading very different lives, each with their own problems. However as each story unravels, secrets are unveiled and relationships come under scrutiny, testifying to the complications of life.

The trailer doesn’t give too much away about each character’s story, however it does leave us wondering how the plot will link the individuals together. A release date for the Us hasn’t yet been confirmed, however it will be released this month in Italy and Belgium, and Japan later this year. »

‘Magic Mike Xxl’ Secures Summer Release

22 hours ago

The brilliant and hilarious stripper comedy Magic Mike, which sadly included no actual magic, was a bit of surprise hit when it first arrived in 2012. A sequel was quickly announced and now we have confirmation of the exact release date. The aptly titled Magic Mike Xxl will get people hot under the collar from 3rd July 2015. It’s a prime summer spot, especially in the Us where they’ll be celebrating Independence Day the very next day, and what better way to celebrate?

The original film was directed by Steven Soderbergh whereas the sequel will promote the first assistant director of Magic Mike, Gregory Jacobs, to the director’s chair. Channing Tatum is set to return, but there’s still no word on other cast members such as Matthew McConaughey. Tatum will also be contributing to the writing process, which is understandable as he used to work as a male stripper. »

New Poster For ‘The Immigrant’ Starring Marion Cotillard & Joaquin Phoenix

15 April 2014 3:09 PM, PDT

The Immigrant made its debut at Cannes last year and has reunited director James Gray with Joaquin Phoenix for the fourth time, after they previously worked together on We Own The Night, Two Lovers and The Yards.

We already previously heard that Gray wrote this role specifically for Cotillard, who here plays Ewa Cybulski, a woman who sails to New York with her sister from their native Poland in search of a new start. However, when they reach Ellis Island, the doctors discover that Magda is ill, and they are separated.

Out on her own, Ewa quickly falls prey to Bruno (Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. The arrival of Orlando (Jeremy Renner) – a dashing stage magician  - restores her self-belief and hopes for a brighter future, becoming her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.

‘Fast & Furious 7′ Recruits Paul Walker’s Brothers

15 April 2014 1:34 PM, PDT

Last month production restarted on Fast & Furious 7, coming after the tragic death of the star of the series, Paul Walker, in November last year. However, today an official statement was issued confirming that Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, will be helping out director James Wan with the film. The statement says:

A Note to the Fans of Fast & Furious

The Fast & Furious saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.

Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.

We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. »
