Fox cancels Independence Day 3D re-release

21 November 2012 9:09 AM, PST

In the current cinematic climate, 3D conversions are now commonplace with the likes of Jurassic Park, Titanic and the Star Wars prequels all receiving the treatment. However, out of the blue, 20th Century Fox have pulled the plug on their 3D version of '90s box office smash, Roland Emmerich's Independence Day. Considering the relatively low expense involved with converting films, as well as the success of 3D updated films already this year, (Titanic grossed an extra $343m for Paramount on its re-release) it marks a strange decision by Fox....

Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX get screenwriters

21 November 2012 3:54 AM, PST

Following Disney's recent purchase of Lucasfilm, the Star Wars reboot/continuation plan has been all systems go. After hiring Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) for the first new installment, Deadline is reporting that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are set to take up writing duties for Episodes VIII and IX. The rumoured involvement of Kasdan is a mouthwatering prospect considering he has co-written, arguably, the best Star Wars film to date, The Empire Strikes Back. Not to mention he co-wrote Raiders Of The Lost Ark and Return Of The Jedi....

Zack Snyder confirms that Man Of Steel trailer will play before The Hobbit

21 November 2012 2:03 AM, PST

Zack Snyder has been helping to whip up some more excitement for Man Of Steel, confirming that the new trailer will preview before The Hobbit, and talking a little about what we can expect from his star-studded cast. “I can't wait for The Hobbit,” says Snyder, “so it will be fun to see our crazy Man Of Steel trailer and then enjoy The Hobbit because that's going to be great. It just feels like a fun Christmas thing to do, drag the whole family out for that action.” When asked about Shannon’s performance as Zod,...

New trailer for Jack The Giant Slayer: watch now

21 November 2012 1:58 AM, PST

Jack The Giant Slayer recently underwent a name change (“Giant Killer” sounds too stabby, apparently), and now there’s a new trailer to match, as Nicholas Hoult goes up against the titular monsters. Narrated by the familiar tones of Sir Ian McKellen, the new trailer adopts a suitably epic feel, from the courtly glamour of the king’s castle, to the towering beanstalk itself. And then there are the giants, making their bow alongside a diabolical villain played by a typically flamboyant Stanley Tucci. If nothing else, it...

The Hobbit's existing footage has been fused into epic seven-minute trailer: watch now

21 November 2012 1:47 AM, PST

The Hobbit has been blessed with an epic new trailer online, in which all the footage that has been released so far is cut into one single, lengthy teaser. The video is fan-made rather than an official release, but it’s still well worth a look, if only to whet your whistle for the film’s grand unveiling next month. And for those who think trailers these days reveal too much, bear in mind this is seven minutes of a three-film series. It shouldn’t spoil too much… Check it out, below: The trailer plays out in a...

Chris Hemsworth talks Thor 2

21 November 2012 1:46 AM, PST

Thor: The Dark World will be one of the super-sequels leading Marvel’s Phase Two charge, and Chris Hemsworth has taken the time to inform fans that there will be a very different feel to the new movie. “The look of the film is a lot bigger than what we did even previously,” says Hemsworth. “The first one worked and people loved it, but this is with a different director and just has a totally different feel. There’s a definite Game Of Thrones vibe thanks to [director] Alan [Taylor]. “We have six weeks to go...

Evil Dead releases eerie new poster

20 November 2012 11:17 PM, PST

The new Evil Dead film has released a brand new poster online, the tagline of which makes quite the statement of intent. “The most terrifying film you will ever experience” screams the text, echoing Bruce Campbell’s comments that the film will be focusing on sheer horror rather than the chuckles of the second two episodes in the series. Having taken a look at the official trailer, we can certainly believe that the new film is scarier than those that have gone before, although lashings of gore and cringe-inducing violence...

More actors linked to Harry Osborn in Amazing Spider-Man sequel

20 November 2012 7:26 AM, PST

The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s casting process has taken another twist, with four new names having been added to the list of potential actors for Harry Osborn. We’d previously heard that Dane DeHaan, Alden Ehrenreich and Brady Corbet were the three frontrunners for the part, but Heat Vision now reports that Sony are looking for a more athletic, imposing figure, as per their initial brief. As such, Sam Claflin and Eddie Redmayne have reportedly jumped to the head of the queue, while Douglas Booth and Boyd Holbrook are also thought to...

Zero Dark Thirty releases a UK poster

20 November 2012 6:17 AM, PST

Zero Dark Thirty has unveiled a new one-sheet, putting Jessica Chastain right at the front of the action. The tagline further plays up her pivotal role: ‘For ten years one woman never stopped searching for the most wanted man in history’. With Chastain looking badass in a pair of aviator shades, silhouetted by the film’s title-logo, the poster keeps things simple. Check it out in full below: [Click on the poster to see it in hi-res] The film focusses on the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, with as much attention paid to the...

Sam Mendes has an idea for Bond 24

20 November 2012 2:58 AM, PST

While Sam Mendes has yet to confirm that he’ll be returning to direct another Bond film, the signs are looking increasingly promising that the Skyfall helmer will take the reins on 007’s next outing. According to long-term Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, Mendes already has an idea in place for a potential follow-up, although they themselves will be leaving the franchise after a five-film residency. “We’re very happy to have done five Bond movies,” said Wade in an official statement. “I...

New images from Fast And Furious 6

20 November 2012 2:33 AM, PST

Vin Diesel has posted a new pair of images on Facebook of Fast And Furious 6, featuring three of the original cast reunited once more. One of the two images shows a scene featuring Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster, three of the original cast members from franchise kick-starter, The Fast And The Furious. Given that that film came out way back in 2001, it’s remarkable to see three of the core group still going strong, with fourth wheel Michelle Rodriguez also returning for round six. The other image is a more generic shot of...

James Wan, Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne set for Insidious 2

20 November 2012 2:18 AM, PST

Having become one of the most profitable films of 2011, it should come as no surprise that studio bosses have order a sequel to horror flick Insidious. What is surprising, however, is how many of the original team will be returning for round two. Made for just $1.5m , Insidious raked in a staggering $97m at the box office, cementing James Wan’s reputation as a director capable of working miracles with a modest budget. Recently placed in charge of the forthcoming MacGyver adaptation, Wan will return to the director’s chair for...

Leslie Mann feels up Megan Fox in This Is 40 featurette: watch now

19 November 2012 1:47 PM, PST

This Is 40 has released a new red-band featurette in which Judd Apatow and his cast talk us through what’s been going on with Pete and Deb (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) since we last saw them in Knocked Up. The film takes place five years after the events of that film, and sees the couple struggling to recapture the intimacy and excitement of their younger years together while also taking care of a young family and their irascible parents. There are plenty of gags to enjoy, nearly all of which hit the mark, while there’s also the...

Ryan Gosling is battered in the first poster for Only God Forgives

19 November 2012 9:34 AM, PST

Ryan Gosling's face looks like it has been battered to a pulp in the first promo poster for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives. Revealed over at The Film Stage, the Ogf poster promises a film of brutal violence, with the Drive director and star reteaming for a Thai boxing drama. It’s safe to say Gosling will be on the receiving end of some brutal treatment, if the sight of his face on this one-sheet is anything to go by. It’s a risky marketing move, battering in a face that’s been having cinemagoers swooning...

Three unused posters for The Dark Knight Rises

19 November 2012 8:58 AM, PST

The Dark Knight Rises came out at the cinema months ago (it’s almost out on Blu-ray/DVD), so it was an unexpected but pleasant surprise to see three new posters emerge. ‘New’ might not be the correct term actually, as these three one-sheets weren’t ever actually used. Trailer Park revealed the designs on their website though, so at least they get to see the light of day. And deservedly so too, as they’re moodily impressive in their own right. You get Christian Bale’s Batman striking an iconic pose,...

Ben Affleck talks adapting The Stand

19 November 2012 2:49 AM, PST

With Ben Affleck’s directorial star firmly in the ascendency, it’s no surprise to see him given the option to take charge of one of Warner’s major properties in the form of Stephen King’s The Stand. However, the projest has struggled to get past the development stage for a reason, and Affleck has admitted that he’s finding it tricky to work out how best the mammoth tome should be adapted. “Right now we’re having a very hard time,” says Affleck. “But I like the idea - it’s like The...

Breaking Dawn Part 2 tops the Us box office

19 November 2012 2:45 AM, PST

Breaking Dawn Part 2 has surprised precisely no one by storming to the top of the Us box office, although it fell just short of the series’ best ever haul. The new film took a whopping $141.3m in its opening weekend, outstripping nearest contender Skyfall by around $100m. No wonder there is already talk of further spin-offs to come… That total makes the film the second most successful Twilight movie, falling just shy of New Moon, which opened to $142.8m. The film has also been a hit worldwide, with its overall total hitting the...

Jesse Eisenberg stars in first trailer for Now You See Me: watch now

19 November 2012 1:58 AM, PST

The first trailer has emerged online for Now You See Me, in which Jesse Eisenberg and a posse of do-gooding magicians play Robin Hood through a series of elaborately staged bank jobs. Eisenberg stars alongside Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco as a quartet of magicians who use their shows as a cover for their theft, before redistributing their ill-gotten gains to their stunned audience. However, such altruism comes at a cost, and it isn’t long before Mark Ruffalo’s FBI man and Melanie Laurent’s Interpol agent are...

Two new TV spots for Jack Reacher: watch now

19 November 2012 12:35 AM, PST

Jack Reacher has released a pair of new TV spots, in which Tom Cruise shows off his badass side, and Werner Herzog proves he’s a villain to be reckoned with. The first spot throws Herzog’s villain into the spotlight, forcing a man to beg for his life, before putting a bullet in his head anyway. Rosamund Pike’s character describes him as “a cancer”, and he certainly seems set to provide a suitably hissable foe. Meanwhile, the second spot focuses on Cruise as Reacher, firing off one-liners left right and centre as...
