The Limitless TV show has been cancelled after one season

32 minutes ago

The TV show based on the Bradley Cooper movie Limitless has been cancelled after just one season. The news was revealed on Twitter by showrunner Craig Sweeny.

I'm truly sad to report that #Limitless will not continue on any platform. Thanks so much to everyone who watched.

Craig Sweeny (@CraigSweeny) May 25, 2016

Cooper popped up in the show as a recurring guest star, and Limitless screened on Sky television in The UK, and CBS in the Us. The rumour, via Deadline, was that the network were shopping it around following the first season, but it looks like it hasn’t been picked up.

Cooper also executive produced the show, along with Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci.

Sad news.

‘Fast and Furious’ producer updates us on the ‘Hobbs’ spin-off

32 minutes ago

One of the best things about The Fast and the Furious series is clearly Dwayne Johnson‘s character of Hobbs, and as the actor goes to work on the eighth film in the series after finishing up on the Baywatch movie, the series’ producer has an update on the proposed Hobbs spin-off, which has been mooted over at Universal.

“Hobbs was one of the first characters we merged together on”, Hiram Garcia told Comic Book, “and when Fast approached [Dwayne Johnson], telling him about the character they wanted to create, [Johnson] and I were able to sit down and craft this guy that we would just laugh out loud at the lines we would come up with”.

“When you can say ‘you’re gonna put a hurt on someone so bad you’ll make their mama wish they kept their legs closed’, stuff like that where we can’t even finish the line »

Disney might be making a live-action version of ‘The Little Mermaid’

13 hours ago

We know what you’re thinking… aren’t they already doing one? Well, no. Universal have their own ‘Little Mermaid’ in development which will star Chloe Grace Moretz, be directed by Rebecca Thomas from a screenplay by Richard Curtis. It has nothing to do with Disney. However, the Mouse House are apparently mulling over an idea to bring a live-action version of their animated tale, released back in 1989, to the screen.

Deadline report the news that following next year’s Beauty and the Beast and the countless other re-dos of their animated classics that are in the works (Pete’s Dragon, Dumb etc), they may be adding their take on the famous Hans Christian Andersen tale to that growing list. Apparently, they’ve been pitched a decent idea as to how to bring it to the screen, but are as yet undecided on if they will through some cash at »

There’s a New Scott on the Block: ‘Morgan’ Trailer Lands

17 hours ago

Luke Scott has a lot to live up to. He’s the son of Ridley Scott and the nephew of the late Tony Scott. Both have a strong set of films and so it’s either bold brilliant or naive stupidity that made the youngest Scott decide to give the directing gig a whirl. Thankfully from the first glimpses of his feature Morgan he seems to have inherited his father’s panache for science fiction.

It’s a pretty starry cast for a first time feature but obviously the Scott name brings actors running. Actors present include Kate MaraAnya Taylor-JoyToby JonesBoyd Holbrook, Rose LeslieMichelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Paul Giamatti.

The project has been shrouded in secrecy, no mean feat in today’s spoiler mad society,and all we know about the story is what the synopsis has revealed:

Rams Blu-ray Review: “A beautiful, resonating drama”

18 hours ago

The first seven minutes or so of Rams plays out in almost absolute silence, with no music and only a few words spoken. What we see is a group of farmers tending to their sheep and farm. It’s a serene scene, showing us the connection between man and nature. It also sets the stage nicely for the rest of the film – the quiet, profound tone is echoed within director Grímur Hákonarson‘s project – which is comfortably subdued depicting the relationship between two brothers and that of man and nature. The simple premise can sometimes be a little too much and occasionally feels a little too slow while we wait for something to happen.

Set in a remote valley in Iceland, Rams follow two brothers, Gummi (Sigurdur Sigurjónsson) and Kiddi (Theodór Júlíusson), who, despite living a mere few steps from one another, haven’t spoken in 40 years. Their sheep stock »

Bo66y review: “A significant, honest and moving documentary”

24 May 2016 9:36 AM, PDT

Bo66y review: An exceptional documentary charting the life and career of one of England’s greatest, Bobby Moore. Bo66y review

Bo66y review by Paul Heath, May 2016.

We all remember the glorious year of 1966 when England last lifted the football world cup, and while most of us reading this won’t have been around at that time, we all know of the legendary Bobby Moore, the man who led the country on that historic afternoon. My fingers wanted to put a ‘sir’ before his name when typing that last sentence, but its difficult to believe that the England hero was never knighted prior to his death in 1993, a fact that this documentary highlights, but also underlines and questions repeatedly, as well as focussing on Moore’s more well known glory days both at West Ham and leading out the squad at Wembley nearly fifty years ago.

A new international poster for ‘Star Trek Beyond’ has arrived

24 May 2016 6:05 AM, PDT

There’s a touch over six weeks until Star Trek Beyond makes its way onto cinema screens. The film, which is directed by Justin Lin and produced by J.J. Abrams, beams into cinemas from July 22nd, and we have a brand new international poster to share with you. It’s pretty awesome.

The film’s plot is being kept under wraps, but we do hear that the story revolves around Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), and Spock (Zachary Quinto) who are stranded on alien while the rest of the Enterprise crew face a new alien threat, which we believe may be Idris Elba’s character.

‘Austin Powers 4’ may still happen, says director

23 May 2016 11:33 PM, PDT

The last Austin Powers movie, Austin Powers in Goldmember was released fourteen years ago, and while we all thought that the franchise was officially done following a very successful trilogy, it seems that a fourth film may still happen.

The films’ series producer Jay Roach commented to Larry King that an Austin Powers 4 is still being considered.

Here’s what he had to say: “You know, Mike Myers and I talk about it every time we get together. I would say it’s in a latent phase right now, but someday if we find the right idea that seems to have it earn itself, for sure. Mike gave me the break of a lifetime in letting me direct [Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery] so I’m always good to go.”

Wow. The last we heard was that a potential plot man actually revolve around Dr. Evil and his son Scott (Seth Green) and would »

23 May 2016 11:04 PM, PDT

Joss Whedon reportedly had a tough time on his last big-screen directing project, the fairly decent Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and in the year since its release, Whedon has been quiet on what his next project may be. Until now.

According to TheWrap, Whedon revealed some tiny tidbits at the HeForShe Media Summit in Los Angeles. Referring to the planned project, Whedon said that “it is a story about a girl who goes through some unbelievable shit. And that much is all I can say”.

“It’s the first time in my life I’m writing without a sort of studio audience rating — without a plan,” he added. “I’m just writing about something I care about, so it’s a little terrifying and it’s taking a little longer. But I think it will be good!”

He added that it is “an original screenplay that is very different from everything I’ve ever done, »
