First Look At Leto’s Joker For ‘Suicide Squad’

8 hours ago

So we’ve seen vague pictures of Leto going through the make-up process for his role as The Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad, but we’ve just been given the first complete look at the Clown Prince Of Crime, and it’s truly something to behold. Taking a completely different route, the look adds dentures, jewellery, and tattoos…lots and lots of tattoos, to a fairly classic look. This is obviously a Joker who has been active for quite some time, in-line with Affleck’s Batman.

It’s certainly a look that is going to divide opinion, but I really like that it’s going in a different direction. However, I just can’t imagine The Joker sitting down to get his ink done. This also goes further to establishing the darker world of DC, which contrasts with Marvel’s lighter superheroic action, which is something that has »

Cobain: Montage Of Heck Blu-ray Review

23 hours ago

Director: Brett Morgen

Featuring: Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean Cobain, Krist Novoselic, Courtney Love, Don Cobain

Run Time: 132 minutes

Certificate: 15

Extras: Don Cobain interview, Director Interview

As raucous, complex, uncomfortable, brilliant, astonishing and unique as Kurt Cobain was, so is Cobain: Montage Of Heck. Meshed exceptionally together by writer, producer and director Brett Morgen, the documentary features interviews with the likes of Krist Novoselic and Courtney Love, alongside intriguing insights with his sister Kim Cobain, and his mother and father; Wendy O’Connor and Don Cobain respectively. Morgen’s reportedly spent 8 years pulling it all into one distinctive package as it blends home movies, distinctive animation scenes (juxtaposed with Kurt’s recorded sound bites) and mountains of ideas, words and pictures from his own personal archive.

The Nirvana front man was a contemporary genius and we’re shown that even from an early age, it was clear he had far too much going on his head. »

Here’s Your First Look At Radcliffe & McAvoy In ‘Victor Frankenstein’

24 April 2015 6:22 AM, PDT

Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, two of Britain’s finest young actors, are currently shooting Victor Frankenstein with Gangster No. 1 (great movie) helmer Paul McGuigan, and today Empire have given us our first behind-the-scenes look at the new take on the Mary Shelley masterpiece.

McAvoy is playing the title role of the young scientist in the film, while Harry Potter alumni Radcliffe assumes the part of his assistant Igor.

“As much as the monster is his creation, Igor is his creation as well,” said McAvoy to the magaizing on set. “That was quite exciting. It’s funny, the script, but also really dark, in a cool way.”

You haven’t too long to wait for the movie, as it is released on October 2nd, 2015. Mark Gatiss, Jessica Brown Findlay and Andrew Scott also star. Max Landis wrote the script.

Check out the two new images above.

Lake Bell shares all with Simon Pegg in fantastic clip for ‘Man Up’

24 April 2015 5:30 AM, PDT

This is an inspired clip from the upcoming Man Up that stars the equally magnificent Simon Pegg and Lake Bell.

The initial plot kicks off when Nancy (Bell) is mistaken for Jack’s (Pegg) blind date under the clock at Waterloo Station, but she decides to take fate into her own hands and just go with it. From the first trailer here, it looks really inventive and if this clip is anything to go by, it’s also hilarously honest and sees two stars on top form.

Here Nancy (Bell), explains her theory about sexual partners when two people first get together, there’s natural chemistry everywhere – Just enjoy:

Man Up opens in the UK on 29th May. »

Dreamcatcher DVD Review

24 April 2015 4:45 AM, PDT

Director: Kim Longinotto

 Starring: Brenda Myers-Powell

Certification: 15

Running Time: 98 Minutes

Dreamcatcher (not to be confused with the Stephen King’s 2003 film), is a documentary following the work of a foundation that helps women in prostitution in Chicago. Brenda Myers-Powell works voluntarily at the Dreamcatcher Foundation which tries to save these women but is a hugely difficult task.

The opening of this documentary presents us with beautiful images of Chicago but lurking underneath is years upon years of child abuse, domestic violence and prostitution. We follow Brenda travelling some of the dark and dangerous streets in the South of the city, not taking the women away as it isn’t that easy but giving them condoms to help in any way she can. It’s not just this though as she also gives them a friendly ear, so they can talk about their problems and possibly seek the help they need from Dreamcatcher. »

Jason Statham shares his Real Spy credentials in Nsfw Clip from ‘Spy’

24 April 2015 4:45 AM, PDT

The Stath has become a cult figure all of his own and it’s basically come from a lot of hard work and non-stop effort from the husky-voiced Brit star. In this geninuely entertaining clip for Spy, the new comedy-action film from Paul Feig.

Opening on 5th June, the movie stars Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. When her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

We all know McCarthy has slightly hit the unfunny bone in her last couple of outings but here it looks like she’s back on form, and we’re looking forward to seeing the ridiculous, more natural comedy side return!

24 April 2015 4:23 AM, PDT

Jamie Foxx is currently preparing to star in a new biopic based on the life of legendary, though controversial boxer Mike Tyson in a movie to be directed by none other than Martin Scorsese.

The actor gave an interview to Hot97, the world’s most popular hip-hop station this week, where he talked about the film, and it sounds awesome, and very, very, Scorsese.

Terrence Winter (who worked with Scorsese on the brilliant The Wolf Of Wall Street) will write the screenplay.

The interview was video taped and you can hear Foxx describe in great detail the film’s opening scene. He seems to have Tyson’s voice down already. Can’t wait.

A Billboard Has Been Spotted In La For Rush Hour 4… Face/Off 2!

24 April 2015 4:01 AM, PDT

A bit of a non-story this, but interesting all of the same. A massive billboard for Rush Hour 4 – Face/Off 2, featuring Sean Combs (Diddy) and Byung-Hun Lee has been spotted on a rooftop in Los Angeles. A bit random as there has obviously been no announcement of any such movie, but it looks like it could be a fake poster for a movie shooting in there area.

Judging by comments left over at Reddit, the general consensus seems to be that the billboard may be a left-behind from the recent Entourage movie shoot, which is due this summer. Diddy featured in the original TV series on HBO, and will potentially have a prescence in the new movie which releases this summer.

Another theory is that this is 100% legit.

Anyhoo, take a look, and tell us what you think.

If I could have put money on this I would have. The eighth movie in the lucrative Fast And The Furious series will be released around the planet in April, 2017. The film’s star and producer Vin Diesel announced the news at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas just yesterday.

The news comes as Fast And The Furious 7, or Furious 7 as it is known in its domestic territory, became the seventh highest grossing film of all time, with a massive $1.15 billion in ticket receipts since its release just two and a bit weeks ago.

The official release date for Fast 8/ Furious 8 will be April 14th, 2017. We’d expect shooting to commence later this year/ early next. Besides Diesel, no cast or director have yet been announced.

M. Night Shyamalan Returns: First Trailer & Images for ‘The Visit’ Arrives

24 April 2015 3:45 AM, PDT

Yes it’s true, after a number of disappointingly drab movies for director M. Night Shyamalan, he’s back once again with The Visit, which looks like a hopeful return to the slow-burning psychological thriller he begun with but with the help of the found-footage format and Insidious team Blumhouse Productions.

It’s hard not to be slightly apprehensive regarding The Visit and this trailer doesn’t really bear all the markings of a classic, especially as the found-footage style has been done to death already and there’s only the minority who’ve given us a new spin. Shyamalan undoubtedly has all the right intentions but there’s an air of predictability here, so I’m going to blame trailer editing. If you’re putting together something for the director who’s not had the best time for the past 5 years or so, make it subtle, snappier…

Anyway, if »

Generation Of Z: Apocalypse Theatre Review

24 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT

Are you an avid viewer of The Walking Dead? Grown up watching George A. Romero’s films about the reanimated dead? Want to get in on the action yourself? Of course you do, and we’ve stumbled across the perfect event for you. Unlike other zombie experiences which rely heavily on a chase element, Generation of Z: Apocalypse instead has you act as a fly on the wall in an immersive piece of promenade theatre.

Zombie HQ is housed in Whitechapel, just a short walk from the tube station and is easily accessible. The production kicks off with the necessary health and safety brief – you may be manhandled, you may get bloody (but it will wash out) and, to steal from Arnie, there is no bathroom. Once briefed the audience is abandoned in a dark and dingy industrial basement, the walls littered with missing posters, the floor covered in rubbish and debris. »

Just Sayin’ – Watch The First Trailer For ‘Black Mass’

24 April 2015 1:52 AM, PDT

Johnny Depp really needs a hit. After the failings of Transcendence and the more recent Mortdecai, the world’s number one actor (Tm) has a couple of potentials coming up, including a return to the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the fifth Pirates Of The Carribean movie, and a possible awards contender in Black Mass, for which a first trailer has just hit the web.

The trailer has a very big Goodfellas vibe to it, not just because of the gangster speak, but for the uncomfortable ‘funny how’ speech that greets us as the trailer starts up. Depp looks absolutely amazing in this.

Here’s the plot.

In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob.  Black Mass tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, »

Marvel Confirms ‘Daredevil’ Will Return For Second Series

23 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT

Like many others, I’ve been enjoying the fantastic Daredevil and was under the impression that sadly this was a one-off series. Given that Marvel and Netflix had previously announced their plans to also release A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist before teaming them up for a Defenders miniseries, this seemed like a fair assumption. It came as a very welcome surprise then when the pairing took to Twitter to announce Marvel’s Daredevil would be returning for a second series next year.

Fisk was just the beginning. The first Defender is back for Season 2 of @Daredevil. #Daredevil pic.twitter.com/GuE30lK8qt

Scarlett Witch Joins ‘Captain America: Civil War’

23 April 2015 6:58 AM, PDT

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron opens in cinemas today much to the relief of Marvel fans everywhere. The film which is of course a follow-up to The Avengers Assemble introduced several new characters to the cinematic Marvel universe; The Vision, Ultron, Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch. The latter is played by the Olsen twins’ younger sister Elizabeth Olsen and did a great job of almost stealing the film (read our review here).

Whilst over in the UK promoting the new release the actress took part in a Q and A at the Apple store and confirmed that Age Of Ultron isn’t the last we’ll see of her telekinetic alter-ego. When asked about whether she’d be seen in third Captain America outing Civil War she responded positively saying ‘I guess I’m allowed to talk about that now.’ She didn’t go into any more detail other than she »

Unbroken Blu-ray Review

23 April 2015 4:45 AM, PDT

Director: Angelina Jolie

Cast: Jack O’Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Garrett Hedlund, Takamasa Ishihara, Finn Wittrock

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 137 minutes

Based on The New York Times’ bestseller by Laura Hillenbrand, Unbroken tells the incredible true story of Louis Zamperini, an American Olympian forced to fight for survival following a near-fatal plane crash during World War II.

Since Universal originally acquired the rights in 1957 (re-purchasing them in 2011), Zamperini’s story has long been mooted for a big screen adaptation and you can see why. This unbelievable tale of endurance – including an extended stint stranded in shark-infested waters and torture in multiple prisoner of war camps – is difficult to fathom and the film only really scratches the surface of the man’s exceptional life story.

With Angelina Jolie returning to the director’s chair and featuring Ee BAFTA Rising Star Award winner Jack O’Connell in the lead role, this biographical drama merely »

Gatchaman: Crowds DVD Review

23 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT

Director: Kenji Nakamura.

Starring: Daisuke Namikawa, Maaya Uchida, Ryota Ohsaka, Corey Hartzog, Jessica Calvello, Ty Mahany.

Running Time: 288 minutes

Certificate: 15

Gatchaman first started life way back in the 1970s, and is better known in the west as Battle Of The Planets. There have been many iterations of Gatchaman over the years, ranging from loosely connected anime shows to live-action movies and so on. Therefore you must forgive my ignorance of being absolutely clueless on the franchise with the latest offering, Gatchaman Crowds, being my first exposure to this world.

Set in Tokyo, the series follows a series of superheroes known as Gatchamen, who seemingly protect the world from alien invasions. However, once a new recruit, Hajime, joins the force, things begin to change. Hajime is at first presented as naive, but quickly shows that her bubbly, cute approach to the alien threat may actually be worthwhile. She ends up talking to one of the aliens, »
