Watch: 20-Minute Gotham Featurette Delves Deep into the Upcoming Origin Story Series

45 minutes ago

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will be held this coming Monday, which means the 2014-15 TV season is fast approaching.  One of the new shows that many are curious about is Fox’s Gotham.  The series is essentially a Batman origin story without Batman, as it follows a young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as he works to clean up the city of Gotham.  The show will introduce a gallery of classic Batman villains from The Penguin to The Riddler to Poison Ivy, and we even get a very young Catwoman.  I’m curious to see how this show can sustain itself if it’s mostly made up of teases and hints and in-jokes (again, Batman will not materialize), and a new 20-minute Gotham featurette offers a behind-the-scenes look at how showrunner Bruno Heller and the cast see this story unfolding.  The constant “wink-wink” nature could get old fast, so hopefully »

Allison and Adam Predict the 2014 Primetime Emmy Winners

1 hour ago

It was another fantastic year for television, and the 2014 Emmy nominations mostly captured that (...more or less). But when it comes to winners, the Emmys can be a wily beast, as seen in last year's bevy of baffling wins (Jeff Daniels for Newsroom, Bobby Cannavale for Boardwalk Empire, among others).  Expect the expected with the Emmys, usually -- unless they go completely off the wall. This year, I have requested the expertise of Collider's own Adam Chitwood to assist me with picks, not only because he closely follows the awards circuit year-round, he also has a much better track record than I do for picking awards winners in general.  Hit the jump for our guesses about how the results will play out and why in our 2014 Emmy predictions.  The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, will air live on NBC Monday, August 25th at 8pm Et/5pm Pt. »

Friday Box Office: If I Stay on Top with $6.8 Million; Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Tanks with Paltry $2.6 Million

1 hour ago

The Young Adult trend continues at the box office this weekend as the Chloe Grace Moretz-fronted adaptation If I Stay topped all contenders on Friday with a solid $6.8 million.  That’s a far cry from the $26 million that The Fault in Our Stars took in on opening day earlier this year, but still a respectable pull for the $11 million drama.  Reviews weren’t as ecstatic as that previous Ya film, but fans of both Moretz and author Gayle Forman’s source material look to have turned out for the film, which is on track for a weekend total around $16.5 million.  That might not be enough for the number one spot though, as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has its eye on reclaiming the title with a Friday take of $4.8 million, looking to pull in somewhere between $17.5 million to $17.7 million.  On the flipside, the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For »

Stephen Gaghan Set to Direct the Pilot for AMC’s Geopolitical Drama White City

3 hours ago

Academy Award winning screenwriter Stephen Gaghan is a busy guy right now.  Not only does he have Matthew McConaughey nearing a deal to star in his upcoming feature, Gold, but now he’s also gearing up to direct and executive produce an AMC pilot, too.  It’s called White City and is being described as a geopolitical drama about Western diplomats and journalists in Afghanistan.  We last reported on it well over a year ago when it was amongst a list of shows AMC had in development. The concept comes from co-writers and co-executive producers Nick McDonell and John Dempsey.  McDonell wrote the book Twelve, which was adapted into a film that hopefully you’ve forgotten by now.  He also worked as a journalist, covering Iraq and Afghanistan.  Dempsey is a former resident of Kabul who became a senior advisor on Afghanistan.  Hit the jump for more on what they’ve got in the works. »

Alexander Ludwig and Ser’Darius Blain Talk Drills, Tears & Tires in When The Game Stands Tall, Vikings Season 3, and More

3 hours ago

Based on the true story of the longest winning streak in high-school football, When The Game Stands Tall focuses on how the historic team deals with loss both professional and personal. Anchoring the team-side of the film, young actors Alexander Ludwig and Ser’Darius Blain do much of the emotional heavy lifting, Blain as a former star-player struggling to move on & Ludwig as the current running back whose personal life threatens to derail his high-school career. It’s a film with just as many tears as snaps – and both Ludwig & Blain are just as convincing in the hard-hitting football scenes as they are in the off-the-field personal drama. In the following interview with Ludwig and Blain, the duo discuss getting to the heart of their many emotionally raw scenes, the intense football training process and their various upcoming projects (for Ludwig – the 3rd season of Vikings & for Blain – the docudrama Bolden, »

The Knick Recap: “The Busy Flea”

14 hours ago

In "The Busy Flea," The Knick continued its hypnotic look at the early days of surgical practice, weaving together personal stories with history.  One of the show's biggest achievements (aside from its gorgeous and distinctive look -- more on that later), has been the story of Algernon, and his desire to do things on his own terms.  But like most things at the Knick, that is easier said than done.  Hit the jump, because "you promised me a dead man!" Under Steven Soderbergh's direction, The Knick teases viewers, but also mirrors a sense of the series' unique perspective.  When Thackery's old love Abby enters the scene, her affliction is revealed piece by piece.  First, the admitting nurse glances up at her, and changes her attitude from one of indifference, to that of wonder and care.  When the patient turns to Thackery, as well as viewers, we see her blue-tinted lenses and dark nose piece, »

Matthew McConaughey’s got an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for True Detective, he’s the star of one of the most anticipated movies of the fall, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, and now, on top of that, it looks as though he might be lining up three more projects.

Steve Martin in Final Negotiations to Star in Disney’s Magic Camp

17 hours ago

We haven’t seen Steve Martin on the big screen since The Big Year in 2011 and minus the animated film Home, he doesn’t even have anything on the way.  However, that could change soon, because it’s being reported that Martin is currently in final negotiations to star in Disney’s Magic Camp. Martin co-wrote the most recent draft of the script with A.C.O.D. writer-director Stu Zicherman and it focuses on a “straight-laced” banker who attended Magic Camp as a kid.  Now, all grown up, he’s going back to become a counselor in hopes of winning the Golden Wand competition.  Hit the jump for more on the project.

Marc Webb Discusses Sinister Six Plans in the Amazing Spider-man 2 Blu-ray Bonus Features

17 hours ago

The Amazing Spider-Man franchise is a bit all over the place right now.  There was the Amazing Spider-Man 3 release date shuffle, Sinister Six landing in the November 11, 2016 slot and all this talk about the Venom Carnage movie, too.  On top of that, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn’t really do the best job of teasing what’s to come - but perhaps that's just because they didn't even know which movie would actually hit theaters next. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 just arrived on DVD and Blu-ray a few days ago and even though I haven’t had the opportunity to plow through the bonus features myself, many have and they’re sharing what Marc Webb said about building the mythology to prepare for Sinister Six and future films.  Hit the jump to check it out.  Warning: There are Amazing Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man 2 spoilers in this article.

Special Lost-Themed Episode of Phineas And Ferb to Air September 29th; First Look at Terry O’Quinn’s Character Revealed

19 hours ago

We learned a few days ago that the Disney Xd original series Phineas and Ferb will be resurrecting Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s characters from Shaun of the Dead for a special Halloween episode, and now news comes that a Lost-themed episode will debut next month.  Titled “Lost in Danville”, the episode features a story by Lost co-creator/showrunner Damon Lindelof and a voice performance by John Locke himself Terry O’Quinn as, fittingly, a polar bear.  The story involves a mysterious locked capsule falling into Phineas and Ferb’s backyard, which may or may not contain said polar bear.  I’m not particularly familiar with Phineas and Ferb myself, but the one-two punch of the Shaun of the Dead and Lost news is making me rethinking my interest in the series. Hit the jump to check out the first Phineas and Ferb Lost episode image.  It airs on Disney Xd on Monday, »

New A Walk Among The Tombstones Images: Liam Neeson and Dan Stevens Are on the Hunt

20 hours ago

Universal Pictures has released some new A Walk Among the Tombstones images from director Scott Frank’s (The Lookout) upcoming dark crime thriller.  The film stars Liam Neeson as an alcoholic ex-cop who investigates the kidnapping of a heroin drug lord’s wife, teaming up with a heroin trafficker (Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens) and his brother to hunt down the men responsible for the crime.  While on the surface this could be seen as another cash-in on Neeson’s “badass hunting down bad people” movie genre, I’m highly encouraged by the involvement of Frank.  He penned the scripts for Out of Sight and Minority Report and I was a big fan of his previous directorial effort The Lookout, so it’s with some degree of anticipation that I’m looking forward to this one.   Moreover, Stevens proves in The Guest that he’s more than capable of handling a darker role, »

John Wick Image Featuring Keanu Reeves as an Ex-Hitman Coming Out of Retirement

20 hours ago

Lionsgate had The Expendables 3 and Step Up All In in August, but the studio is actually only scheduled to release one more film prior to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 on November 21st, Addicted with Sharon Leal and Boris Kodjoe on October 10th.  However, word recently got out that they’re going to slip one more in there, and it’s one that you might not even be aware of – the Keanu Reeves action thriller, John Wick.  Reeves leads the film as a former hitman who goes back to work in order to track down the New York City gangsters that took everything from him. Minus a little casting news in October 2013, there’s been little to no talk about David Leitch and Chad Stahelski’s first feature, however, now that Lionsgate just set it for an October 24, 2014 debut, that’s about to change big time, starting with the »

Andrew Dominik to Pen Justin Lin’s 3D Shaolin Temple Remake

21 hours ago

A pretty exciting China-backed project is taking shape.  It was announced earlier this year that Fast Five director Justin Lin had signed on to helm a $100 million 3D Shaolin Temple remake, and now Deadline reports that The Assassination of Jesse James and Killing Them Soflty writer/director Andrew Dominik will be writing the screenplay.  The original 1982 film was Jet Li’s big screen debut and took place during the period between the Sui and Tang Dynasties, revolving around the son of a murdered Tang emperor who trains himself up to enact revenge on the perpetrator.  Perfect Storm Entertainment and Beijing Enlight Pictures are producing the project, which Lin intends to direct next after he completes the new Bourne sequel.  That film hasn’t even started production yet, so Shaolin Temple is still a few years off. Hit the jump for more on Dominik’s involvement. When the Shaolin Temple remake was first announced, »

John Lithgow and Alfred Molina Talk Love Is Strange, Prepping Without Rehearsals, Props They’ve Kept from Past Films, Interstellar and More

21 hours ago

You’d think two prolific actors like John Lithgow and Alfred Molina would have worked together before.  The guys are good friends, but, it turns out, Love Is Strange is their very first movie together.  They play Ben and George, respectively.  They’ve been together for 39 years, but are only first making it official now.  But, as soon as they get married, the Catholic school where George works fires him leaving them no choice, but to sell their apartment and find a less expensive one.  However, until they find that new place, they need somewhere to stay and no one they know can accommodate them both, so Ben heads off to live with his nephew (Charlie Tahan) and his family in Brooklyn while George settles in with their former neighbors. With Love Is Strange due for a limited release this weekend, we got the opportunity to sit down with Lithgow »

Amityville: The Awakening Trailer Wants Cameron Monaghan to Kill Them All

22 hours ago

Do we really need another Amityville Horror movie?  When news first broke that a new one was in the works, I’d say probably not, but now that our very first glimpse of Amityville: The Awakening is here, it actually looks like it has some potential.  This rendition is led by Bella Thorne.  Her character moves into the notorious Suffolk County, Long Island house with her mother and sister because her brother was in a terrible accident, is now in a coma and there’s a hospital in the area that has the best neurological department in the state. We’ve definitely got some genre clichés here, namely a moody teenager who doesn’t want to start over at a new school, some creepy dolls and a handful of jump scares, but even then, the first Amityville: The Awakening trailer is far better than I expected.  Hit the »

The Amazing Spider-man 2 Blu-ray Special Features Offers up a Look at the Visual Effects

22 hours ago

With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hitting Blu-ray/DVD this week, Sony has been releasing snippets of the movie's bonus features.  Several days ago, we got a look at the film's makeup design and application for Electro (Jamie Foxx), and today there's a clip from the featurette regarding the movie's visual effects.  Visual effects supervisor Jerome Chen explains that Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) has become a bit of a daredevil, so that allowed the team to play with Spider-Man's leaps and falls.  Additionally, animation supervisor Dave Schaub points out that they wanted to incorporate different moves into Spider-Man's arsenal like scrambling on his weblines while swinging.  These featurettes are fun because they're a reminder that even if you don't like the movie, the work that goes into making it can still be interesting.
