Simon West planning Con Air sequel in space?

17 hours ago

Well, here's a news story we weren't expecting to write, as director Simon West has been discussing the possibility of a Con Air sequel… set in space! Despite seventeen years having passed since the first film was released, West is still keen on the idea of a follow-up, provided the idea behind it is strong enough. “There are always rumours about a Con Air 2," says West. "I would do it if it was completely turned on its head. Con Air in space, for example." "A studio version where they’re all robots or the convicts are...

Brand new Interstellar trailer heads to the outer limits: watch now

22 hours ago

A new trailer for Interstellar has arrived online, in which Matthew McConaughey heads into space on a mission to save humanity. The new trailer does a great job of balancing the film’s human story with the dizzying, outer-space sequences, as McConaughey says goodbye to his family and journeys into the void. Needless to say, the whole thing looks utterly spectacular, but with more than enough heart to balance out the sci-fi elements. Consider us very excited indeed!

30 July 2014 4:04 AM, PDT

For those of us who weren't lucky enough to go to Comic-Con this year, we're afraid we have some more bad news. You know that Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice clip that had Hall H heroes hyperventilating with hype? It won't be released officially online, which makes our eyes glow red with tears of disappointment. That's according to Sue Kroll, Warner Bros. president worldwide marketing and international distribution. Asked about the clip, Kroll said: “That’s just going to live in that hall. We’ll post extended trailers and stills, but...

Is Simon Pegg in Star Wars: Episode VII?

30 July 2014 3:40 AM, PDT

We love Simon Pegg. We love Star Wars. We also loved Spaced, which sees Simon taking a torch to his Star Wars memorabilia because he hates George Lucas' prequel trilogy so much. The minute Jj Abrams was announced as the director of Star Wars: Episode VII, we prayed to the maker that Pegg hadn't burned his chances of appearing in it along with his Jar Jar plushie. But what's that in the distance? Cause for optimism? Help us, Benedict Cumberbatch; you're our only hope. Asked if he would want to appear in Jj's Star Wars Universe,...

Read Tom Hiddleston's loving fan letter to Joss Whedon

30 July 2014 2:23 AM, PDT

Tom Hiddleston's Loki is one of the high-points of Joss Whedon's Avengers. The 'puny God' scene is arguably the film's best moment. Those are just facts.  And it turns out Tom knew that would be the case from the moment he picked up Whedon's script. In fact, he got so excited he penned a gushing email to the writer / director as soon as he finished it, and you can read it below. Joss, "I am so excited I can hardly speak. "The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the...

Quentin Tarantino has revealed that his original vision for Kill Bill, subtitled The Whole Bloody Affair, is on its way to cinemas in 2015.

28 July 2014 11:16 PM, PDT

Deadline reports that the studio has Joe Cornish in its sights, with the director having received an official offer to take the helm on the new project.

New trailer for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For blasts online: watch now

28 July 2014 10:55 PM, PDT

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has released a new red-band trailer online, demonstrating just how little has changed in the moral cess-pool from which the film takes its name… In terms of plot, the new trailer establishes Powers Booth’s crooked senator as the big bad of the piece, before hurtling off into an orgy of severed limbs, push-up bras and badass one-liners. Eva Green looks more than likely to steal the show here as Sin City’s latest femme fatale, while there’s also a first look at Lady Gaga, seen here helping Joseph...

We were lucky enough to chat to the Guardians of the Galaxy cast, and managed to snaffle some time with Peter Quill himself, Chris Pratt.
