Latest Ant-Man Trailer Jumps Online

3 July 2015 8:45 AM, PDT

The buzz around Marvel’s latest has certainly been taking on a more positive note of late and, as Ant-Man prepares to arrive in cinemas, the latest trailer has gone online. This is your chance to become the viewer... Michael Douglas’s scientist Hank Pym is the inventor of the suit that lets Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) shrink to insect size and run around a lot. Pym is the man who discovered the particles that let him miniaturize objects and people. He recruits Scott for a heroic heist that will let them both save not their own world, but everyone else’s. And for Scott, whose criminal record is lengthening, it’s a chance for him to be the hero his daughter sees. They’ll have to deal with Corey Stoll’s Darren Cross, who has his own plans for the tech with his more nefarious alter ego Yellowjacket.

Exclusive New Deadpool Image

3 July 2015 3:24 AM, PDT

Deadpool's Negasonic Teenage Warhead meet Empire readers. Empire readers meet Negasonic Teenage Warhead. You’re going to get along famously. To add to Ryan Reynolds’ tweet a few months back introducing Deadpool’s new compadre, we have a new shot of the two of them together and up to minimum good.Named after a track by ‘90s gonzo rock contenders Monster Magnet and created by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely in the comic-book run, Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s real name is Ellie Phimister. Her mutant powers may extend to telepathy, a skill she learnt under Emma Frost’s tutelage. If you think her codename is a little, well, out there, Kitty Pryde would probably agree. "Wow, we really have run out of names,” she jokes in one of the comics. Not, on this evidence, that you’d want to say that to her face. Newcomer Brianna Hildebrand plays Wade Wilson’s partner in crime, »

Bryan Singer Teases New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Rogue Cut Footage

3 July 2015 1:41 AM, PDT

Pending its first public airing at Comic-Con next week, Bryan Singer has taken to the social medias with a brief, busy teaser for the new Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. See how many new bits you can spot."This is not just an extended edition of X-Men: Days Of Future Past," says the director, "but an all-new version of the film." Writer/producer Simon Kinberg said previously that “We want to give fans the fullest picture of the film – behind the camera, and in front of it. Every movie has scenes that are cut out, but not every movie has scenes cut out with such a beloved character.”[Here be possible spoilers]. Empire has seen it, and we can confirm that it's 18 minutes longer than the theatrical version, and despite the Anna Paquin-centric title, surprisingly Rogue-light. "She gets resuced from the X-Mansion," says our man Nick De Semlyen, "but only »

New Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Images

2 July 2015 10:49 AM, PDT

As the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con is now less than a week away, the studios are gearing up to show off what they have to offer in the worlds of science fiction, fantasy, romance, adventure and, of course, superheroics. With Marvel’s Cinematic Universe skipping this year (the TV shows will represent), Warner Bros. and DC are naturally going big with their efforts. Some new images from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice have emerged via Entertainment Weekly. As you’ll know by now, the film finds Kal-El (Henry Cavill) going toe-to-toe (or cape-to-cowl) with Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) as a world-weary Batman decides that Superman is just too much of a threat to ignore. And while the idea of Bats taking on Supes would seem to be along the lines of a bicycle battling a tank, Wayne is coming loaded for alien bear, with a reinforced suit that enhances his »

Simon Kinberg Talks Deadpool

2 July 2015 10:31 AM, PDT

Given the big platform that is next week’s San Diego Comic-Con, Fox will naturally be taking the chance to hype Deadpool, which has Ryan Reynolds finally getting a proper crack at the wise-cracking, violent character. Entertainment Weekly has a new picture of the main man, with commentary from producer Simon Kinberg and director Tim Miller.Deadpool features former Special Forces warrior-turned-mercenary Wade Wilson, who undergoes a rogue experiment as part of the Weapon X plan that leaves him brutally scarred but also boasting Wolverine-like healing powers. Armed with his new abilities and his pitch-dark sense of humour, he hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life, while taking on other bad guys as he does so.  And according to Kinberg, it will, as Reynolds and the rest have been saying, stick to the mantra of grown-up (if not always mature) storytelling. “Deadpool is a hard R,” he says. »

Mark Wahlberg Joins Mile 22

2 July 2015 10:30 AM, PDT

With Peter Berg already on board to produce the action thriller Mile 22, you might have wondered whether he’d reach out to Mark Wahlberg about a role. You’d be right to wonder, because Wahlberg is now locking down a deal to star in the film.Word broke back in March that The Raid stalwart Iko Uwais and Ufc champ-turned-actress Ronda Rousey were part of the film, which sees a CIA field officer (Wahlberg) and an Indonesian cop (Uwais) thrown together while transporting a compromised informant from the centre of the city to an airfield 22 miles away. En route, they have to contend with corrupt police and heavily armed locals, all of which we’d guess will make Uwais sigh, raise his fists and say, “not this again…”How Rousey fits in remains to be seen, though we could see her as a member of the squad trying to make it to the plane. »

Exclusive First Trailer For Spanish Thriller Marshland

2 July 2015 7:10 AM, PDT

Promising to do for Andalusia what Blue Ruin, Cold In July and the first season of True Detective did for the southern Us, Goya-winner Marshland has a rural noir flavour that’s already impressed festivalgoers and critics. The Spanish thriller hits the UK in August and its promotional campaign has kicked off with a new trailer and an eye-catching new poster.Marshland is set in 1980 during the country’s transition from the Franco era to democracy. Its premise sees two teenage girls disappearing and a pair of cops, Juan (Javier Gutiérrez) and Pedro (Raúl Arévalo), charged with tracking them down. Only, of course, there’s a serial killer involved. There’s always one.The two homicide detectives have an uneasy relationship and plenty of their own demons, but director Alberto Rodriguez has by all accounts veered away from the odd-couple cop cliches that plague lesser thrillers to deliver an atmospheric, »

New Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp Trailer Online

2 July 2015 7:08 AM, PDT

With the show arriving at the end of the month on Netflix, Wet Hot American Summer prequel First Day Of Camp has brought a full trailer online. And – joy! – it’s a thing of comedy beauty.While the movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981, the show, as you might be able to guess, takes place on the first. And despite the idea of the Camp Firewood ensemble largely playing teenagers being part of the joke, they all look pretty darned good. Talking of, pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni, H. Jon Benjamin (who is promoted from voicing a can of veggies in the film to appearing in the series, seen giving out the rules of camp “no dry humping. No necking. No wet humping…”) and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »

Hawk The Slayer To Return In A Sequel

2 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

Clearly it's a week for unexpected and belated sequels. A day after the news that Robin Hardy is prepping the final part of his Wicker Man trilogy, comes the revelation that Hawk The Slayer is also set to return, 35 years after his first adventure. Original director Terry Marcel, in cahoots with 2000Ad publishers Rebellion, is about to launch a crowdfunding campaign for Hawk The Hunter.Much beloved of VHS-era schoolboys, the 1980 Hawk starred John Terry (the guy from Lost, not the footballer) as the titular adventurer, with Jack Palance as his scenery-chewing evil older brother Voltan. Casting support came from Brit stalwarts like Bernard Bresslaw and Roy Kinnear. Voltan kills his father and kidnaps a nun. Hawk mounts a rescue mission with a sorceress, a dwarf, an elf, a giant with a big mallet, and the ancient power of the Sword Of Mind.The details of Hawk The Hunter are sketchy at present, »

Exclusive First Look At Nicholas Hoult In Kill Your Friends

2 July 2015 5:19 AM, PDT

One of our fastest rising young actors, Nicholas Hoult mainlined Mad Max: Fury Road with crazed energy as the shiny, chrome-faced Nux. He has X-Men: Apocalypse and Eran Creevy’s intriguing Autobahn on his dance card, but before either of those, Kill Your Friends will offer a showcase for his talents for black comedy. Here's a first look at him as Steven Stelfox in the upcoming adaptation of John Niven’s ‘90s-set novel, courtesy of the nice people at StudioCanal.Set in the murky, often chemically enhanced world of the music industry circa the Britpop era, Kill Your Friends follows Hoult’s A&R man as he rides the Cool Britannia wave through its Blur vs Oasis high point and down a deep, dark hole. A sort of Filth or American Psycho for the music biz? Maybe. It’s just possible that Stelfox is as lacking in the milk of »

The Edinburgh International Film Festival 2015: In Review

2 July 2015 2:07 AM, PDT

The sun has set on this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival, meaning that it's time for a spot of reflection. In general, there was a lot to like about the 2015 programme, which featured plenty of interesting titles and a variety of well-received choices. One Scottish film was given a critical kicking across the board — clue: it rhymes with 'Mottish Scussel'* — but aside from that, there were very few duds. In terms of highlights, there is little doubt that this year’s most popular film was Inside Out, the latest animated feature from Pixar. Revolving around a young girl named Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias), it tells a lovely story that cuts between the real world and the inside of Riley’s mind, which is visualised as a control room of sorts. Referred to as “Headquarters”, this area is populated by five personified emotions — including Joy (Amy Poehler) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith »

Paul Thomas Anderson Tackling Pinocchio Script

2 July 2015 12:03 AM, PDT

Here’s a filmmaking trio we’re not sure anyone could have predicted, even if they’d stapled Nostradamus’ skull to Paul the football result-predicting octopus’ memorial: Paul Thomas Anderson. Robert Downey Jr. Pinocchio. Yet they are indeed being brought together as Anderson is now aboard to rewrite and potentially direct the latest take on the puppet story.Robert Downey Jr. and producing partner/wife Susan Downey have been trying to get this one to screens for years now, setting up the project with the idea that the once and future Tony Stark will play Geppetto, the woodcarver whose puppet boy is granted the gift of life. Hannibal’s Bryan Fuller, Kick-Ass co-writer Jane Goldman and The Giver’s Michael Mitnick are among those who have completed drafts based on Carlo Collodi’s book, but Downey hasn’t yet found what he’s looking for, even tweaking the script himself in recent months. »

Gattaca's Andrew Niccol Writing Monopoly

1 July 2015 5:15 PM, PDT

Can Andrew Niccol succeed where Ridley Scott has apparently thrown in the towel? Lionsgate and Hasbro appear to think so, as the studio and the toy company have handed scripting duty on the Monopoly adaptation to the Gattaca man.Scott had been trying for several years to use the game as a launching point for a fantasy adventure, but to no avail. Script drafts have come and gone. The closest effort appeared to be producer Frank Beddor’s pitch for a Jumanji-style story about someone sucked into the game and forced to battle corrupt money types.Now, though, Hasbro has taken back the rights to the game and handed them to the Hunger Games company in the hopes that it – and Niccol – can find a workable concept. In their idea, set within the game’s buildings and streets, “a boy from Baltic Avenue (a square on the American version of »

Full Steve Jobs Trailer Takes The Stage

1 July 2015 5:10 PM, PDT

Back in May, the first teaser for Danny Boyle’s take on Apple man Steve Jobs was uploaded to the web. Now here comes trailer 2.0, a more rounded look at the movie and, if we’re honest, the most amazing, full-featured promo anyone has ever debute... Sorry. Got a little Jobs hyperbole on us there.With a script by Aaron Sorkin based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of the man, Steve Jobs focuses on three big moments in his corporate life: the launch of the Mac; NeXT (which was introduced after he was removed from the company); and the iPod, the game-changing player he spearheaded after his triumphant return.This new trailer has a lot more of the supporting cast around Michael Fassbender as Jobs: Seth Rogen’s Steve Wozniak questions his contributions to the original development of the early Apple machines, while Kate Winslet plays marketing chief Joanna Hoffman, »

Fatal Attraction Miniseries In The Works

1 July 2015 5:01 PM, PDT

In its continued effort to raid the archives for films it can rework for the small screen, Paramount TV has turned its eye towards one of the most influential psychosexual thrillers of the 1980s. Fatal Attraction is taking aim at our tellies.Adrian Lyne’s 1987 film starred Michael Douglas as Dan Gallagher, a married man who cheats on his wife for a one-night stand with Alex Forrest (Glenn Close). But when Gallagher decides that’s all it will be, Forrest becomes obsessed with him, and starts stalking both Dan and his family, including wife Beth (Anne Archer). Things turn violent, and especially unfortunate for the Gallagher family rabbit, which ends up boiling in a pot on the stove.The film launched a raft of imitators and now Mad Men veterans Maria and André Jacquemetton are on hand to figure out stretching the concept across what Us TV refers to as »

Timothy Spall In Talks To Play Ian Paisley

1 July 2015 4:54 PM, PDT

Having won major acclaim (and an acting award at Cannes) for his performance in Mr. Turner, Timothy Spall has his eye on another job playing a real person. He’s in talks to play the late Sir Ian Paisley in The Journey.Nick Hamm’s film chronicles the story of how two seemingly implacable enemies – Paisley, the stalwart, vocal leader of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party and Sinn Fein’s Martin McGuinness – had to find common ground and make history. Hamm is writing the script with Colin Bateman and aims to kick off filming in Northern Ireland and Scotland this September, once he’s found someone to play McGuinness. It’ll represent another meaty role for Spall, playing a man who managed to forge a lasting friendship with someone he once bitterly opposed, to the point where McGuinness was visibly moved at Paisley’s funeral last year.

J.K. Simmons And Michael Keaton Won't Visit Kong: Skull Island

1 July 2015 9:03 AM, PDT

Universal and Legendary Pictures will have to do without an Oscar winner and an Oscar nominee. Because, thanks to a change in the filming schedule, both J.K. Simmons and Michael Keaton have had to leave Kong: Skull Island. That means Tom Hiddleston is, at least for the immediate future, the only person set to charter a voyage to the giant ape-inhabited isle, though the producers and director Jordan Vogt-Roberts are already out in the wilds with giant casting nets looking to capture two new co-stars. The film finds a team of explorers venturing deep into the island’s jungles in search of its mysterious creatures and, most likely, getting much more than they bargained for. Universal, in turn, will be hoping that the presence of huge beasts lumbering around an island threatening to eat people will bring the Jurassic World crowd out.Vogt-Roberts was originally planning to kick off production in the autumn, »

New Transporter Refuelled Trailer Lands

1 July 2015 8:13 AM, PDT

There may be a new Transporter in town but the game hasn’t changed too much since the Jason Statham era. At least, not judging by the new trailer for The Transporter Refuelled. Click on the YouTube link to blow it up… pretty much literally.Ill ManorsEd Skrein is the man stepping into the sharp suit as deliveryman-with-a-difference Frank Martin. It’s business as usual for Frank in a promo set to The Heavy's trailer favourite 'How You Like Me Now?’ There's car chases, beat downs, quick cuts and extended sequences where villains speechify and then Frank opens whole barrels of kick-ass. The rules - never change the deal, no names, never open the package - remain the same but the villains are a lot nicer looking this time out.Brick Mansions man Camille Delamarre is directing this one, working from a script that producer Luc Besson handed to »
