Orphan Black Recap: “Certain Agony of the Battlefield”

11 hours ago

Behold - answers! Orphan Black has gotten away with posing a significant amount of questions, one, because they’re all especially intriguing and, two, because the main players are so wildly likable and engaging, but I’ve got to say, it’s nice to finally get some answers, and ones that take the narrative a significant step forward nonetheless. We begin at the Castor military compound - but it’s empty. It’s easy to figure out that Sarah’s dreaming as she chases Kira around the facility and then winds up in a room where she sees Rudy’s blood being transferred into her own body. Even though Sarah soon snaps out of it and wakes up in her cell, she quickly comes to realize it really happened. Virginia pumped her full of Castor blood. Meanwhile, Paul’s in Arlington meeting with his contact who’s played by Tom Barnett and credited as “Benchman. »

First The Martian Picture Reveals Matt Damon as Stranded Astronaut Mark Watney

15 hours ago

Well, this looks a bit familiar. Roughly a year after popping up in outer space as Dr. Mann in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Matt Damon is decked out in astronaut attire yet again in the first image from Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Damon leads the big screen adaptation of the Andy Weir novel as Mark Watney, an astronaut who’s presumed dead and left behind by his crew. However, Watney actually survived the nasty dust storm and now he’s got to figure out how to survive on the hostile planet with limited resources and no way of calling for help. The Playlist tracked down the image on the Spanish site Entradanumerada.com, but it looks to be a scan from Empire Magazine. Check out the first The Martian picture for yourself below. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Donald Glover, »

Assassin’S Creed and Next Bourne Movie May Add Ex MacHina’s Alicia Vikander

16 hours ago

In case you haven’t noticed, Alicia Vikander is everywhere right now. Seventh Son and Ex Machina already hit theaters this year, she’s still got Testament of Youth, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Danish Girl on the way, and she's busy lining up new projects as well. Vikander recently became part of one of the hottest packages at Cannes, but a couple of new opportunities just popped up that might force her to drop out of it. Deadline is reporting that she’s currently in talks to star in Assassin’s Creed and the new Bourne movie, projects that would certainly conflict with James Ponsoldt’s book-to-film adaptation of The Circle starring Tom Hanks. Vikander’s involvement was only announced a few weeks back, but Deadline suggests that she will exit that project. In fact, the outlet has heard that Im Global head Stuart Ford already made an »

Top 5: Tomorrowland, First Steve Jobs Trailer, Poltergeist, Cannes 2015

16 hours ago

A few weeks back I praised Alex Garland's Ex Machina for being an "anti-blockbuster" of sorts. For having the gall to rely almost solely on story and character rather than huge set pieces and explosions during the summer movie season. Today, I'm going to celebrate George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road for mastering all of the above. For providing me with the most exhilarating, breathless movie theater experience I can remember having and for telling me a great story with interesting characters along the way. By now I'm sure you've heard the near universal acclaim for Fury Road. How it's a modern action masterpiece, a wildly inventive, fiercely inspired, over the top piece of filmmaking that belongs alongside some of the best films that the genre has ever produced. For what it's worth, I believe all of this to be true and I fully expect the film to withstand the test of time. »

Friday Box Office: Tomorrowland Edges Out Pitch Perfect 2

20 hours ago

This Memorial Day weekend won’t set any box office records, but it should be interesting to watch nonetheless. One week after Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road surprised many of us with their bigger-than-expected debuts, there is still a lot of goodwill remaining for the two holdovers. Pitch Perfect 2 earned an estimated $9.7 million on Friday and is expected to bring in approximately $33 million this weekend. That will push the musical comedy well over the $100 million mark and may even be enough to give PP2 a second frame on top of the domestic box office. The fate of Pitch Perfect 2 hangs on the number of people that turn out to see Disney’s Tomorrowland this weekend. Initial projections had the PG-rated adventure claiming an easy win with at least $40 million over its debut frame. But based on Friday’s estimates, Tomorrowland may have to settle for second. »

Entourage: Jeremy Piven Talks Returning to Ari, Cameos, and More from the Set

20 hours ago

Almost a year ago, when the Entourage movie was filming at Warner Bros. in Burbank, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. After watching the guys drive around the backlot to film a car sequence, we had a chance to speak with Jeremy Piven during a break in production. He shared some details on what the film’s about, how making the movie compares with the show, what it feels like to be back with the cast, how it’s been a bit uncomfortable getting back into Ari Gold’s skin, what it was like getting to work with Martin Landau on the show, reactions from fans when they meet him, and a lot more. Where are we as the film starts? Jeremy Piven: It’s kind of scenes we planted in the last episode. Am I going to rule the world or stay in »

Jurassic World on Track for $100 Million+ Opening Weekend

21 hours ago

Spoiler alert: dinosaurs are still very, very popular. While overall response to the marketing for Universal PicturesJurassic World has been somewhat mixed, the film is nevertheless on track for a massive opening weekend haul at the box office. Indeed, the first new Jurassic Park film in nearly 15 years seems to have drawn heavy interest from just about everyone, which isn’t a huge surprise given that the IP has been one of the most consistently popular and lucrative properties of the past few decades. Per Deadline, the Colin Trevorrow-directed feature is heading for an opening weekend somewhere between $100 million and $130 million, following a path in line with 2013’s Man of Steel. The highest opening weekend for a Jurassic Park film is currently The Lost World’s $72.1 million, which in 1997 was the highest grossing opening weekend of all time. World doesn’t feature any of the same principal characters »

Here’s What’s New to Netflix in June: Marvel, Scorsese, and More

22 hours ago

School’s out for summer, and the monthly changeover at Netflix is about to ensure that you’ll have plenty of different content to watch next month. A number of films will become available to stream in June, including the magnificent Nightcrawler, Martin Scorsese’s somewhat underrated The Aviator, Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater, and one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final films, A Most Wanted Man. Additionally, last year’s critically hailed but way underseen Beyond the Lights will be available to stream, as will Transformers: Age of Extinction if you enjoy having your senses assaulted. On the TV side, Season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Scandal Season 4 will become available, as will the third season of the Netflix Original Series Orange Is the New Black and the first season of Sense8, from creators Lana and Andy Wachowski.

A Black and White Version of Mad Max: Fury Road Will Be on the Blu-Ray

22 hours ago

One of the most striking things about the terrific Mad Max: Fury Road is that, in a sea of de-saturated post-apocalyptic films, Fury Road embraces color. Director George Miller imbues the action pic with hues that truly pop instead of going the grit-and-grime route normally reserved for dystopian landscapes (see: The Road). However, according to Miller, the best version of the movie is quite different. Speaking with /Film, the filmmaker discussed a black and white cut of Fury Road that he says is the best version of the film: “We spent a lot of time in Di (digital intermediate), and we had a very fine colorist, Eric Whipp. One thing I’ve noticed is that the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There’s only two ways to go, make them black and white — the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now. »

Damon Lindelof Talks Tomorrowland, Deleted Scenes, the Alternate Ending and More

23 hours ago

Now playing in theaters is Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland. The film stars George Clooney as Frank, a disillusioned boy-genius who teams up with the optimistic and scientifically-inclined Casey (Britt Robertson) to discover the secrets of the enigmatic place known as “Tomorrowland”. The film also stars Hugh LaurieTim McGrawJudy Greer, Kathryn HahnKeegan-Michael Key, and Thomas Robinson, and was written by Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen. At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Damon Lindelof. He talked about what they learned from test screenings, deleted scenes, how they had an alternate ending, Easter eggs, his most memorable day on set, the fanboy experience of working with people he idolizes like Brad Bird, and why he hasn’t seen any footage besides the trailers for J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens. Finally, if »

New Black Mass Trailer: Johnny Depp Goes Gangster

22 May 2015 6:16 PM, PDT

Warner Bros. has released a new Black Mass trailer for writer/director Scott Cooper's (Crazy HeartOut of the Furnace) upcoming drama.  The film stars Johnny Depp as notorious crime boss Whitey Bulger, who simultaneously worked as an FBI informant and committed horrible crimes throughout the Boston area for decades. Cooper's film follows Bulger's criminal career through multiple decades of terror. I like what I'm seeing here. The trailer has personality and it's fun - the latter being a quality that is lacking in most crime sagas. It's great to see Depp doing some serious acting for the first time in over a decade and honestly, it looks like he's going to kill it. Depp is an actor known for relying heavily on costume to make himself "unrecognizable", but this is some of the best work I've seen in that regard. And let's not forget about that supporting cast. »

Deadpool: Ryan Reynolds Makes a Fan’s Dream Come True for Make-a-Wish

22 May 2015 4:51 PM, PDT

The Merc with a Mouth also has a big heart, too. Ryan Reynolds has been delivering a steady stream of images while shooting Deadpool, but his latest is extra special. Reynolds just shared some photos from Tony Acevedo’s visit to the Vancouver set. Tony is battling Hodgkin's Disease and asked to meet Deadpool as his Make-a-Wish Foundation wish. Not only did Tony get some face time with Reynolds in full costume, but he also got to rock the Deadpool mask and gloves himself. And this isn't even the first time Reynolds made a fan’s dream come true while shooting the movie. He also met Calista King, a 15-year-old fighting a brain tumor. She got a walk-on role in the film and went home with Deadpool’s sword. It’s always exciting checking out new images and getting first looks at sets and costumes, but there’s really nothing »

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Won’t Return as Michelle Tanner in Fuller House

22 May 2015 3:23 PM, PDT

Aw, nuts. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not reprise their shared role as Michelle Tanner, the youngest of Danny Tanner's clan, in the upcoming Netflix revival series Fuller House. While the twins actually floated the idea that they might take part in the new series, THR reports that they will not return for the new series, leaving the Tanner family down one very key member. The new series will focus on Stephanie and D.J. Tanner, played by returning cast members Jodie Sweetin and Candace Cameron Bure, the eldest daughters of Saget’s Danny Tanner and the older sisters of Michelle Tanner (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). John Stamos will produce and reprise his role as uncle Jesse in a guest role. Dave Coulier will also return as Uncle Joey. Original cast members Bob Saget and Lori Loughlin are still in talks to join. [caption id="attachment_447291" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via ABC[/caption] Executive producer Robert L.

New Scream Queens Featurette: Go Behind the Scenes with Ryan Murphy and the Cast

22 May 2015 3:21 PM, PDT

I'm going to watch Scream Queens no matter what, but that first full-length trailer for Ryan Murphy's latest was a bit underwhelming. As Murphy explains in this brand new behind-the-scenes featurette, it's supposed to be a cross between Heathers and Friday the 13th. That mix sounds like it could be a blast, but based on the footage revealed thus far, I'm not quite sure if the show will nail the horror and humor, let alone deliver an appropriate blend of the two. Hear all about the upcoming series from Murphy and his cast in the new Scream Queens featurette below. The show also stars Lea Michele, Keke PalmerNasim Pedrad, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Jonas,Oliver Hudson, Ariana GrandeSkyler SamuelsBillie LourdDiego Boneta and Abigail Breslin, and will kick off its 15-episode run in the fall on Fox. Here’s the official synopsis for Scream Queens: »

Studio Time With Junkie Xl Trailer: Learn Film Composing from an Industry Pro

22 May 2015 2:08 PM, PDT

If you've ever wanted to learn the ins and outs of film composing from a working professional, now's your chance. Composer and producer Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie Xl, is launching a new tutorial series on YouTube, Studio Time with Junkie Xl. The series will offer rare insight into the techniques and mechanics of a Hollywood composer. Holkenborg has composed for a number of major blockbusters over the years, most recently scoring everybody's new favorite movie, Mad Max: Fury Road. He'll also be composing the Batman segments for Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice alongside Hans Zimmer. This is pretty damn cool and a very rare opportunity to learn a trade from a working industry professional. I've always been fascinated by the inner workings of the various filmmaking professions, so I'm definitely looking forward to checking out the tutorial series when it launches next week on May 26th. »

Fantastic Four: Michael B. Jordon Addresses Backlash Over Human Torch Casting

22 May 2015 2:05 PM, PDT

When the casting began for 20th Century Fox’s new Fantastic Four movie and Michael B. Jordan was announced to play Johnny Storm aka Human Torch, I was enthused. The guy’s talent has been clear from his days on The Wire, up through his emotionally devastating lead role in 2013’s Fruitvale Station. He’s crazy good, so the casting was a no-brainer. But to some (read: closed-minded folks), Jordan’s casting spelled trouble, and this vocal minority has been making it known on the internet that they do not approve of Jordan’s casting (side note: Fox could not care less what you think). In the comics, Johnny Storm is traditionally a Caucasian male with blonde hair and blue eyes. Obviously Jordan doesn’t fit that mold, but so what? The comics are fiction and obviously any feature film adaptation is going to take liberties, so why not cast »

Poltergeist Review

22 May 2015 1:46 PM, PDT

Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist was one of my first horror movies and perhaps the first to give me nightmares (thankfully there’s 24-hour programming now because the thought of that late night TV sign-off still gives me the creeps). When you hold a film so near and dear, it’s tough not to walk into a screening of the remake ready to tear it apart for exploiting the original, but the new Poltergeist is actually a nice surprise. Is it as good as the original? No, but it does rock some fantastic performances, a very appealing sense of humor and a whole bunch of fun scares, too. It certainly won’t wind up becoming a classic like the original, but it’s still a good time if you’re looking for an entertaining thrill.  Similar to the 1982 original, Gil Kenan’s Poltergeist focuses on a family of five, Eric (Sam Rockwell »

Director Gil Kenan Talks Poltergeist, Deleted Scenes, and Blu-ray Extended Cut

22 May 2015 1:28 PM, PDT

Now playing in theaters is director Gil Kenan’s (Monster House) contemporary remake of the classic horror film Poltergeist. Produced by Sam Raimi, the redo stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as parents trying to fend off a spiritual invasion and save their eight-year-old daughter (Kennedi Clements) from the evil forces trying to take her. The film also stars Jared Harris, Saxon SharbinoKyle CatlettSusan Heyward and Nicholas Braun. While some might be nervous about the remake, I was actually surprised by how well it’s put together. However, it’s definitely aimed at a younger audience, and it’s important to know that going in. A few days ago I sat down with Gil Kenan for a video interview. He talked about his first cut of the film, deleted scenes, what he learned from the test screening process, how he’s releasing an extended cut on Blu-ray, what »

TV Performer of the Week: Tom Cavanagh, The Flash

22 May 2015 1:01 PM, PDT

Genre shows (at least, other than Game of Thrones) don't usually get a lot of respect when it comes to being recognized for awards and commendations. And so, it has been a constant (and lazy) refrain this past year to say that the CW's freshman drama The Flash was one of the year's best superhero shows, when truly it's been one of the year's best overall. The series has -- perhaps against the odds -- found a perfect balance of humor, drama, superpowered-action, and genuine emotion to fuel it through 23 episodes. Its pilot was strong, its finale was even stronger, and everything in between was a delight and a great ride. The Flash's greatest achievement, though, may be in the strength and chemistry of its cast. While there are several of the show's stars who could, and should, be singled out for their performances (including The Flash himself, Grant Gustin »
