International Dracula Untold Trailer: Luke Evans Just Wants to Keep the Peace

42 minutes ago

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything new from Dracula Untold, but with the film’s October 17th release date coming up fast, Universal has got to start ramping up the promotional campaign soon, perhaps beginning with this brand new international trailer.  A good deal of the footage here comes from the domestic promo we got back in June, but it does highlight a few different elements of the narrative, namely the peace in Transylvania and how Mehmet (Dominic Cooper) threatens to destroy it. It also looks as though Universal is still running with the title Dracula Year Zero in some regions overseas.  I don’t care much for Year Zero or Untold, but back when we were on set for the film, it was called Dracula Year Zero, so perhaps it just grew on me.  Regardless, we’re getting Dracula Untold on October 17th.  The film also stars Luke Evans, »

Season 2 of the FX crime thriller The Bridge has Detective Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) and her Mexican counterpart, Detective Marco Ruiz (Demián Bichir) teamed up again to when the body of a cartel member is found on U.S. soil.  Brutal crimes and dangerous enemies will see them pulled into a complex web of drug running, money laundering and police corruption.  This season also stars Ted Levine, Matthew Lillard, Emily Rios, Thomas M. Wright, Annabeth Gish, Franka Potente, Nathan Phillips, Abraham Benrubi and Lyle Lovett. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Demián Bichir talked about how excited he was to explore new avenues of the story for The Bridge Season 2, that he likes the way the show doesn’t label one country as good and the other as bad, the importance of keeping the promises you set up over the course of a season, having his brother Bruno on the show this season, »

Rumor: HBO to Rebroadcast Every Episode of The Wire Remastered in HD Starting September 4

12 hours ago

"It's Baltimore, gentlemen.  The gods will not save you."  That's the opening line of a new promo for a plan to rebroadcast The Wire that promises "every episode, every season, remastered for the first time in high definition."  The promo says the episodes air weeknights 8pm starting September 4.  If you check TV listings online, you'll find other programs filling those timeslots---while About Time is a fine movie, it is not The Wire remastered in HD. However, the Wire page at TV Guide has listings starting September 8 with season 1 episode 3, which would accommodate the first two episodes airing on September 4-5.  I can't guarantee these remastered episodes will start airing this week, but it sure sounds like they exist, and that's a major step for those of you hoping for an eventual Blu-ray release.  Hit the jump to watch the promo Via HBO Watch: The Wire HD Blu-ray

David Cronenberg’s Maps To The Stars Acquired by Focus World for Early 2015 Release

13 hours ago

Filmmaker David Cronenberg’s latest effort will find its way to U.S. screens early next year.  Ahead of the film’s North American debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, Focus World announced today that it has acquired U.S. distribution for Maps to the Stars with plans to release the film stateside in early 2015.  The film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals (John Cusack), his wife (Olivia Williams) who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter (Mia Wasikowska), who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania.  The plot also includes Havana (Julianne Moore), an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother.  The pic premiered earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival, and while the overall reaction was mixed, Moore drew high praise for her performance and won the Best Actress award. »

Ivan Reitman Talks Draft Day Blu-ray/DVD, Working with Kevin Costner, Negative Effects of DVD Extras, Ghostbusters 3 and More

14 hours ago

Directed by Ivan Reitman, the sports drama Draft Day, available on Blu-ray/DVD on September 2nd, shows just how much NFL Draft Day can change the lives of athletes and the fortunes of football teams.  General Manager Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) is up against fan pressure, an ambitious owner (Frank Langella) and a hard-nosed coach (Denis Leary), who all think they know what’s best for the team, and he must decide whether to go with the consensus pick or trust his instincts and risk losing everything.  The film also stars Jennifer Garner, Sam Elliott, Sean Combs, Terry Crews, Tom Welling, Ellen Burstyn and Chadwick Boseman. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Reitman talked about wanting to make a sports movie that even people who don’t care about sports could enjoy, focusing on the human drama, what makes him want to direct a movie, that there were »

Jennifer Garner Surfs the Web in New Men, Women & Children Images

16 hours ago

Judging by the film’s first trailer, Men, Women & Children is going to be a rather striking departure for Up in the Air and Young Adult filmmaker Jason Reitman.  His previous feature, Labor Day, showed that Reitman was in the midst of evolving as a director, but Men, Women & Children looks to be worlds away from his other films, teasing a deeply dark, dramatic, and intense chronicle of living life in the digital age.  Based on the Chad Kulten novel of the same name, the picture revolves around high school students and their parents, and how their relationships, self-image and quality of life are affected by the internet.  A pair of new Men, Women & Children images have been released that feature stars Jennifer Garner and Ansel Elgort, and the photos continue the sober tone that was prevalent in the film’s teaser trailer.  I’m incredibly curious to see what »

Magic Mike Xxl Second Unit Filming Has Begun with Steven Soderbergh as Camera Operator

17 hours ago

Ladies and gentlemen, Magic Mike Xxl is on the way.  Director Steven Soderbergh’s “male stripper movie” Magic Mike was one of the bigger surprises of 2012 in more ways than one.  Not only did the $7 million pic become a box office smash to the tune of $167 million worldwide, but Soderbergh dug deep into his subject matter, crafting a seriously dramatic story about the American Dream against the backdrop of the male stripper world.  Tatum has been hard at work on the Magic Mike sequel for the past year, and today Soderbergh revealed that second unit filming has already begun via a Magic Mike Xxl image on Twitter.  Though Soderbergh is in retirement from film directing, he’s acting as the cinematographer, camera operator, and editor on Magic Mike Xxl while Gregory Jacobs takes over the director’s chair.  It appears that he’s getting a jump on things before principal photography begins in earnest, »

Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead Review

17 hours ago

There’s this one gag in Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead that keeps popping into my mind and making me giggle even days after seeing it.  The first film is a brilliant blend of camp and gross-out horror, but the sequel is above and beyond in almost every respect.  There’s more humor, more outrageous gore, more zombie genre mythology and just so many more priceless moments that you’ll want to run and tell your friends about.  In fact, on our way out of the screening, the group I was with couldn’t settle on a favorite one.  How can you possibly choose between using a zombie body for traction to get a car out of deep snow and blowing up baby carriages? Dead Snow 2 picks up right where the first film left off.  Poor Martin (Vegar Hoel) is the only survivor of the Nazi zombie massacre, he »

Joe and Anthony Russo Talk Community Season 6; Say “Dan Harmon Will Make a Movie” and Reveal Chris McKenna Wrote Jokes for Captain America 2

17 hours ago

Community is really kind of “The Little Engine That Could” of modern sitcoms.  The show found its creative footing during its first season and built up a small yet loyal fanbase, but during its five seasons on NBC it faced the threat of cancellation nearly every year, had its showrunner/principal creative force fired for a season and then rehired a year later, and then finally NBC cancelled the offbeat series once and for all this past May.  Fans were obviously upset by this news, but it felt like it had been a long time coming.  But no, Community wasn’t dead yet.  At the last minute, Yahoo Screen picked up the rights to the series and ordered a sixth season of Community to air exclusively on the digital platform. Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo have been involved with Community since its inception, helming the »

Guardians Of The Galaxy: James and Sean Gunn Talk Spinoffs, Stan Lee’s Original Cameo, Female Superheroes, the Status of Thunderbolts, and More at Dragon Con

17 hours ago

Following the recent news that Guardians of the Galaxy has become the highest grossing movie of the year at the domestic box office, writer/director James Gunn and brother Sean Gunn (who played pre-motion capture Rocket on set and also appeared in the film as Kraglin), recently took part in a panel at Dragon Con in Atlanta.  The brothers were quite candid in answering fans questions and revealed a number of pieces of information not yet explored, including discussing an original semi-r-rated cameo for Stan Lee that Disney vetoed, the inclusion of female characters in the Marvel universe, a bloody extension of Lloyd Kaufman's cameo that was excised, and the extent of Sean Gunn’s on-set performance of Rocket Raccoon that ended up on screen.  James Gunn also talked about how he’s currently focusing on the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including potential Guardians spinoffs, the status of Thunderbolts, »

The 24 Movie Is Possibly Taking Shape Again

18 hours ago

Could Jack Bauer finally, really, truly be coming to the big screen?  Maybe!  Talk of a 24 movie has been bubbling since deep into the Fox show’s run, as star Kiefer Sutherland and those involved behind the scenes have been keen on transporting Bauer’s ass-kicking and name-taking to movie theaters.  Movement began in earnest after the show’s series finale in 2010, but producer Brian Grazer and 20th Century Fox failed to get the film going after numerous drafts by screenwriters like Billy Ray and Mark Bomback, and even filing through directors such as Tony Scott and Antoine Fuqua.  It appeared that a movie wasn’t meant to be, and as Sutherland and Co. saw that it probably wasn’t going to happen, they resurrected Bauer in the form of a 12-episode limited series. Fox's 24: Live Another Day debuted this past May and garnered solid ratings for Bauer’s return, »

Game Of Thrones’ Miltos Yerolemou Joins Star Wars: Episode VII

20 hours ago

Those darn limeys don't observe Labor Day, and it's for the best since they've got some new Star Wars: Episode VII casting.  According to the BBC, Miltos Yerolemou, who played swordsman Syrio Forel on Game of Thrones, has joined the upcoming Star Wars sequel in an undisclosed role, although it will probably be a minor one.  Yerolemou is probably best known to American audiences for his performance on Game of Thrones, but he's also played other roles that involve sword fighting, so don't be surprised if you see him wielding a lightsaber. Yeromelou is the second Game of Thrones alum to join Episode VII following the casting of Gwendoline Christie back in June, although Lucasfilm declined to comment on his casting.  In case you've never seen Yerolemou on Game of Thrones or just want a refresher, hit the jump.  Star Wars: Episode VII opens December 18, 2015, and also stars Mark Hamill, »

Two New TV Spots for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Remind Us It’s a “Make or Break Moment”

23 hours ago

I heard that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. improved once the show was transformed by the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and I hope that the new season is good enough to bring back those who abandoned the show earlier in season one (myself included).  As Coulson points out in one of two new TV spots, "This is a make or break moment."  Perhaps working "in the shadows" is a better approach for the series and now that expectations have been lowered, it can bounce back.  And if not, there's still Agent Carter to look forward to. Hit the jump to check out the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV spots.  Season two premieres Tuesday, September 23rd at 9pm, and stars Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennet, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge. Via ABC.

New Star Wars Rebels Short Is “Not What You Think”

23 hours ago

For your Labor Day viewing enjoyment, Disney Xd has released a new Star Wars Rebels short.  The animated series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy.  This new short gives us an introduction to Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray), who shares the same irreverent attitude of Sabine and Zeb.  I'm curious to see how the show will develop and differentiate these characters, and how their playful jabs at the Empire will stack up when faced with powerful foes like Agent Kallus and the Inquisitor. Hit the jump to check out the new Star Wars Rebels short, "Not What You Think".  Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney Xd this October, and also features the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr., David Oyelowo, Jason Isaacs, »

The Strain Recap: “Creatures of the Night”

31 August 2014 8:01 PM, PDT

Something is going on with current TV shows where (this week in particular) a capsule, single-focus episode sneaks in around mid-season.  It's a good thing.  It's also a great way for character development, instead of having the plot jump all over town, whipping from story to story.  The device also makes the show feel more novelistic, and acts as a great stand-alone (one of those episodes, too, that you can point to to get new viewers interested).  "Creatures of the Night" was all of that, and it continued The Strain's track record of improving every single week.  Hit the jump to put it to a vote: "who wants to stay and die?" "Creatures of the Night" was essentially the turning point that made The Strain turn into The Walking Dead.  The mythology of both share a pathogen basis, and the Cdc is pretty useless in both cases, but the difference »

Masters Of Sex Recap: “Mirror, Mirror”

31 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT

The hope for Masters of Sex was that it would have a second season renaissance that would collate the best parts of its first season, and leave the rest in the dust.  Masters had a good first season, but none of it came together as beautifully as it did in just its second season premiere.  Since then, only "Fight" has really been exceptional, and instead of taking flight, Masters' second season has gotten stalled out in some tedium (like the fact that an episode that spanned three years only covered, essentially, one conversation, then ended up back where things started).  "Mirror, Mirror" had some great moments (mostly thanks to Flo), but still felt like more of the same.  Hit the jump if you've been a very naughty orthopedist. Despite some moments of catharsis this season, Bill still hasn't changed much.  He denies knowing his brother Frank to anyone in the office, »

Martin Scorsese to Direct Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro in Short Film Promoting New Casino

31 August 2014 7:59 PM, PDT

The good news: Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro are teaming up to star in a new film from Martin Scorsese.  The disappointing news: It’s for a short film promoting a casino.  According to Deadline, RatPac Entertainment is producing a short film that will be used as a campaign for Melco-Crown Entertainment, a global resorts and casino brand.  In addition to nabbing three movie stars and a legendary director, Terrence Winter (The Wolf of Wall Street) will handle the script.  The film will premiere next year at a new movie-themed resort in Studio City, Macau.  I assume it will be about how casinos are awesome as opposed to Casino, which shows a glamorous world of delights masking a seedy, violent underbelly. Despite the short's purpose, I’ll still watch it if I get a chance.  It’s too exciting to see this kind of talent align for any project. »

Jennifer Aniston Talks Life Of Crime, Elmore Leonard, the Lack of Improv, the Way She Likes to Work, and More

31 August 2014 7:15 PM, PDT

Life of Crime, Daniel Schecter’s adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel The Switch, is now playing on VOD and in theaters.  The film features younger versions of the Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson characters from another Leonard adaptation, Jackie Brown, with John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) filling the roles this time around.  The story features Hawkes and Bey kidnapping the trophy wife (Jennifer Aniston) of a wealthy man (Tim Robbins) only to find out he doesn’t actually want her back.  The film also stars Mark Boone JuniorIsla FisherWill Forte.  Life of Crime is loaded with juicy characters and great dialogue, and it's definitely worth checking out.  For more on the movie, read Matt's review or watch the trailer.

Ray Donovan Recap: “Sunny”

31 August 2014 7:00 PM, PDT

The best laid plans of Ray and kin often go astray.  The overarching irony of Ray Donovan is that for a fixer, Ray isn't very good when it comes to his own family.  The truth about him laundering money through the gym to help support Terry (as well as clean Ray's money) ends up alienating Terry completely.  The house in Trusdale meant nothing to Abby without Ray's emotional support behind it, and she finally challenges his years of cheating on her.  Ray was willing to allow Cookie Brown to take hold of Marvin's life, so long as he moved him to South Beach to keep him away from Bridget.  But that, too, turned sour quickly.  Hit the jump for Ray's other misdeeds, and how it all might get put back together again. Ray's life essentially boils down to herding cats, and it's getting increasingly impossible for him to pretend like it's working. »
