Arnie gets a new look in first image from David Ayer’s Ten

26 October 2012 3:12 AM, PDT

Arnold Schwarzenegger will be sporting a brand new look for director David Ayer’s new movie Ten, having posted a sneak peak of his makeover on Twitter. Ayer had previously been quoted as saying he wanted to “reinvent Arnold”, and from the looks of that close-cropped haircut and batch of new tattoos, he appears to have succeeded. That said, he’s still armed to the teeth with all manner of knives, guns and body armour. Some things never change, and nor should they. The film will see Arnie star as John...

26 October 2012 1:42 AM, PDT

Seismic superhero news this morning, as Matthew Vaughn has reportedly dropped out of directing X-Men: Days Of Future Past, the sequel to his well-received series reboot, X-Men: First Class.

Arnold Schwarzenegger will return as Conan

26 October 2012 1:15 AM, PDT

Not only has Arnold Schwarzenegger returned to Hollywood, he’s doing so with a vengeance, with a reprisal of his role as Conan the Barbarian the latest addition to his increasingly busy slate. Schwarzenegger will team up with Universal to revive the flagging franchise with The Legend Of Conan, a follow-up story that will gloss over the events of the Arnie-starring sequel and the disappointing 2011 reboot. “The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior,” says producer Fredrik Malmberg, “and this is...

Ryan Gosling drops out of Logan’s Run

26 October 2012 1:02 AM, PDT

Ryan Gosling and Nicholas Winding Refn have begun to form the kind of actor-director relationship that brings out the best in both parties, but sadly, that relationship will not continue on the latter’s forthcoming remake of Logan’s Run. Gosling had initially signed on to take the leading role in the sci-fi adventure, but Variety’s Justin Kroll now reports that the Drive star is no longer attached to the project. Whether that’s the decision of the studio (Warner are likely gearing this one up for a big, tentpole...

Could Idris Elba be the next James Bond?

25 October 2012 2:52 AM, PDT

While Daniel Craig is still in line to don the tuxedo for a couple more outings yet, there will always be rumours surrounding his eventual replacement. One of the names who keeps cropping up is Idris Elba, with many people feeling that it’s only a matter of time before we get a black Bond (although the way Colin Salmon is carrying on on Strictly, you’d think we’d already had one!) Now, Skyfall star Naomie Harris has had her say on the matter, and reveals that Elba has already met with producer Barbara Broccoli to discuss...

Having sparked controversy recently by slagging off The Avengers, Dark Knight Rises cinematographer is set to make his directorial debut, which may well star Johnny Depp. Depp is reportedly in discussions to head up Transcendence, described as a kind of cross between Inception and 2001, while also sounding rather a lot like Tron according to THR’s plot synopsis. “The story centres on a man who creates a computer that develops a malevolent awareness,” reports the site. “Depp will play a husband who gets sucked into the...

Evil Dead remake gets first gore-soaked trailer: watch now

25 October 2012 1:51 AM, PDT

Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead remake has released a first red-band trailer, and it’s just about as grisly as even the most hardened gorehound could have hoped for. As Bruce Campbell commented yesterday, “the film isn’t funny”, and that jet-black tone is on display for all to see, as the Necronomicon is cracked open once more, and all hell breaks loose. For those of a nervous disposition (or anyone who finds scenes of tongue-carving splatter a mite disturbing), we should warn you, it gets a little strong in places....

24 October 2012 2:23 AM, PDT

Yesterday we brought you news that Mark Millar had as many as three of his comic-book properties about to go into development, and today there’s news of another Millar-related project, with screenwriter Derek Haas giving an update on Wanted 2. Haas had previously co-written the original and had been working on the sequel, only for the project to stall. Happily for him, he’s now been brought back into the fold and is working on a script with writing partner Michael Brandt. “We got that call that you always love as a...

Sam Mendes admits that he's unlikely to direct another Bond

24 October 2012 2:21 AM, PDT

Sam Mendes’ rejuvenation of the Bond franchise has been well-documented, with Skyfall garnering rave reviews ahead of its release on Friday, but despite all that, the director has said it’s unlikely he’ll return for round two. The British director was a popular choice to steer the series back onto the straight and narrow after the muddled diversion that was Quantum Of Solace, but says that the process was a draining one. “It’s been a fantastic experience, but it’s been completely exhausting,” Mendes...

James Cameron will direct The Informationist after Avatar sequels

24 October 2012 1:19 AM, PDT

If recent interviews were to be believed, it had seemed unlikely that we would be announcing any new James Cameron projects for quite some time, with the director himself claiming that Avatar would be monopolising his career from here on out. “I’m not interested in developing anything,” said Cameron earlier this year. “I’m in the Avatar business. Period. That’s it. I’m making Avatar, Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4.” However, Cameron appears to have now softened that stance with the...

First TV spot for The Hobbit: watch now

24 October 2012 1:03 AM, PDT

The Hobbit has released a new TV spot online, featuring a couple of snippets of new dialogue alongside the usual adventure-laden footage from Bilbo’s eye-opening journey. The new teaser shows Gandalf attempting to cajole Bilbo out of his comfy but unremarkable life at Bag End, and into a rollicking adventure, the like of which no Hobbit has ever embarked upon. “The world is not in your books and maps,” he remarks, reproachfully, “It’s out there.” Indeed it is, old man, but there are also trolls out there....

Awesome new trailer arrives for Django Unchained: watch now

24 October 2012 12:49 AM, PDT

A brand new international trailer has arrived for Django Unchained, and it’s crammed to the gills with previously unaired footage from Tarantino’s Western extravaganza. Whereas previous efforts have been all about the cool, the new trailer is heavy on character motivations, showing the bond that develops between Django (Jamie Foxx) and Schultz (Christoph Waltz), as well as playing up just how much of a shit Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) is. Early reports concerning the script suggested that this is one of Qt’s most...
