13 minutes ago

DreamWorks Animation is putting together the voice cast for one of its upcoming films.  Heat Vision reports that Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey will lead the voice cast for Boss Baby, which is described as a fantastical comedy revolving around a “fast-talking briefcase-carrying baby (Baldwin) and his seven-year-old brother, who is jealous of the new arrival.”  The brother sets out on a mission to win back the sole affection of his parents and ends up stumbling upon a secret plot by the CEO of Puppy Co. (Spacey).  The two brothers are then forced to come together in order to stop the dastardly scheme.  Megamind director Tom McGrath is set to helm the pic, which is slated for release on March 18, 2016.

New Dracula Untold Featurette Highlights Sarah Gadon’s Mirena

20 minutes ago

Dracula Untold is all about Vlad’s (Luke Evans) choice to become a vampire so that he can defend his people against Mehmet’s (Dominic Cooper) threat, but one of the main reasons he makes that decision at all is due to his undying love for his wife, Mirena (Sarah Gadon). Clearly Dracula Untold will be loaded with fangs, bats and epic battles, but it’s also a movie rooted in romance and family.  Hit the jump to find out more about Mirena’s effect on Vlad in a brand new Dracula Untold featurette and if you’d like even more information on the character, click here to check out my interview with Gadon from our set visit.  Dracula Untold hits theaters in 2D and IMAX on October 17th and also stars Charles Dance, Noah Huntley and Art Parkinson.

The Films of David Fincher: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

1 hour ago

Up to this point in this series, I've mostly sided with Fincher, his decisions, and his thoughts on his movies.  But even by his own metric and intentions, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is almost a complete and utter failure.  I understand why Fincher would feel a kinship with Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), but his reasons for making the movie—the prospect of an R-rated franchise and the relationship between Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) and Salander—are, respectively, superficial and underdeveloped.  Looking over the making-of documentary and his commentary track, I'm astonished at the gulf between Fincher's intentions and what the movie presents. Like with Zodiac, Fincher states he didn't want to make another serial killer movie, and I think in that regard, Dragon Tattoo holds to that promise.  But the movie also doesn't adhere to what Fincher envisioned.  On the commentary track he says, "it was really »

Fox Developing Big TV Show from Enlisted Creators

1 hour ago

Mining familiar IP is not a new notion in the world of television, and fresh off the debut of its Batman semi-prequel series Gotham, Fox is now developing a Big TV show.  Deadline reports that Enlisted executive producers Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce have sold a half-hour comedy adaptation of Big to Fox that they will write and executive produce.  Loosely based on Penny Marshall’s classic 1988 film starring Tom Hanks, the potential series is described as a show that “explores what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid, and how in today’s world those two things are more confused than ever.”  This is actually pretty thematically relevant material as today’s generation doesn’t feel forced to “grow up” as soon as they graduate from college, and instead fully embrace their nostalgia for the movies, TV shows, and even commercials that they enjoyed as kids. »

Keanu Reeves Continues to Kick Ass in New John Wick Trailer and Images

2 hours ago

Lionsgate has released a new John Wick trailer for what’s shaping up to be one of the biggest out-of-nowhere surprises of the year.  Just a month or so ago, I didn’t even know this movie existed.  Then Lionsgate acquired the revenge thriller off of positive buzz and released a fantastic debut trailer that teased a fun, slick, and highly quotable actioner complete with a swell-looking lead performance by Keanu Reeves.  The actor plays a former hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters who took everything from him, and this new, final trailer offers up another promising look at the film.  Yeah, I’m thinking I’m gonna see this. Watch the new John Wick trailer after the jump, along with some new images.  Directed by veteran stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski, the film also stars Adrianne PalickiWillem DafoeBridget MoynahanIan McShaneJason Isaacs, »

Ioan Gruffudd Talks Forever, Keeping an Element of Danger with an Immortal Character, Working with Judd Hirsch, and More

3 hours ago

On the new ABC drama series Forever, Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) is hiding a big secret. New York City's star medical examiner not only studies the dead to solve criminal cases, but also to look for answers as to why he's been alive for 200 years. With the help of his best friend and confidant, Abe (Judd Hirsch), who is the only one that knows his secret, Henry's remarkable observation skills are proving to be quite useful for Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza), but they're also raising questions and curiosity. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Ioan Gruffudd talked about how he got involved with Forever, keeping the element of danger when your character can never die, the awkwardness of always coming back to life naked, working with Judd Hirsch, Henry’s mysterious enemy, and not needing to know all of the answers.  Check out what he »

“A Very Big, Epic Sci-Fi” Tetris Movie in the Works, Obviously [Updated]

3 hours ago

There was Battleship in the summer of 2012, Ouija’s on the way and there were attempts to give Stretch Armstrong and View-Master the big screen treatment as well.  At this point, why would anyone be surprised that someone’s determined to turn Tetris into movie, too? Apparently Threshold Entertainment is joining forces with the Tetris Company to bring the iconic 80s game to the big screen live-action-style.  The film’s got no director or actors attached, but the companies do have the story figured out.  Hit the jump for more on the plan to make a Tetris movie. [Update: Threshold just sent out an official press release confirming the project.] After the painfully uninspiring approach to the Battleship film that was barely reminiscent of the source material, the idea of going live-action with a Tetris movie feel like quite the stretch.  However, Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff told The Wall Street Journal: “Brands are the new stars of Hollywood.  We have a story »

Fall Pilot Review: Selfie

3 hours ago

Based on Pygmalion and My Fair LadySelfie follows Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) as she comes to learn that there is more to life than social media.  Helping her along on her journey of self discovery and manners is Henry Higenbottam (John Cho), who works with Eliza, and who is a master of rebranding (she, naturally, works in sales).  The series is created by Suburgatory's Emily Kapnek, who gives it her trademark fast-paced style.  Hit the jump to see if this ABC comedy deserves a spot on your DVR. Selfie has been heavily promoted by ABC for months, replaying the same unfunny clips over and over again.  Early word for those who had seen the pilot was that there was very little to redeem it. But then there's Karen Gillan and John Cho.  I truly could not imagine any two other actors who would have convinced me to sit through Selfie's pilot. »

Monday TV Ratings: Gotham and Scorpion Hold Strong; The Blacklist and Sleepy Hollow Drop

3 hours ago

TV ratings for Monday, September 29th are in.  Here’s a brief rundown: Fox’s Gotham showed a fairly strong hold of its audience in week two (read Dave’s recap here), scoring a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demo and 7.33 million viewers.  That’s a drop of just 13% from last week’s premiere and marks a solid retention of its audience.  Sleepy Hollow, on the other hand, was down 15% from last week with a disappointing 1.7 rating and 5.1 million viewers. The strongest hold for a new show this week, however, goes to CBS’ Scorpion (read Dave's recap here), which dipped only 6% from its premiere and garnered a 3.0 rating and 12.23 million viewers.  It was second only to The Big Bang Theory as far as scripted programming goes, with the comedy hitting a towering 4.7 rating and 16.18 million viewers for a drop of 13% from last week.  Elsewhere on CBS, NCIS: Los Angeles stumbled 37% from »

First Taken 3 Trailer Features Liam Neeson on the Run; Plus New Poster

3 hours ago

Rescuing your daughter from human traffickers and then going up against Albanian mobsters out for vengeance is some serious stuff, but this first trailer for Taken 3 features a far graver situation and rocks a darker tone than one might expect.  Turns out, Famke Janssen won’t be in the third installment much because Liam Neeson’s character is actually framed for her murder. Hit the jump to check out a new poster and the very first Taken 3 trailer to find out how Neeson goes about using his very particular set of skills to protect the only thing he has left, his daughter, Kim (Maggie Grace).  Taken 3 hits theaters on January 9, 2015 and also stars Forest Whitaker, Dougray Scott, Sam Spruell and Leland Orser. Here’s the official synopsis for Taken 3: Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. »

Star Trek: The Compendium Blu-ray Review

4 hours ago

Paramount committed an egregious faux pas last year with its release of Star Trek: Into Darkness by sprinkling different extras on different Blu-rays.  If you bought your disc at Target, you got one set of extras.  If you bought it at Best Buy, you got a different set.  If you wanted all of them, you basically had to buy multiple copies of the same movie, then vent your fiery wrath across the Internet.  Trekkies hit the roof and with good reason: it took the double-dipping crime to a whole new level.  The new Star Trek Compendium is intended to correct that issue, and I suppose it does… if you’re waiting for all those features in a single collection.  Unfortunately, it compounds the original sin with a whole new one and slaps a higher price on the results in the bargain.  That leaves a sour taste behind for a »

The Babadook Clip: Hi, This is Mister Babadook. Is Amelia There?

4 hours ago

I just cannot wait until everyone’s running around saying, “Ba-ba dook, dook, dook.”  (In Mister Babadook voice, of course.)  Jennifer Kent’s feature directorial debut is making its way towards a November 28th release and IFC Midnight is paving the way with some must-see promo material.  The film’s most recent trailer rocks a wicked build and now this brand new clip manages to make your skin crawl via one actor, one shot and zero action. The Babadook stars Essie Davis as a single mother named Amelia.  Not only is she still having a tough time coping with the loss of her husband, but she also can’t get a good night sleep thanks to her son’s fear that there’s a monster lurking in their house.  Amelia brushes it off as best she can, but when a book called Mister Babadook just happens to appear in her son’s room, »

5 hours ago

The ABC drama series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back for Season 2, with Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) as the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., and having to rebuild the organization torn apart by Hydra won’t be easy.  With the team in shambles, Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), Skye (Chloe Bennet), Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), must decide where their loyalties lie. During this recent roundtable interview to discuss the direction of Season 2, co-stars Elizabeth Henstridge and Brett Dalton talked about the dynamic between Fitz and Simmons, not knowing about Ward’s secret too far ahead of time, the little details that the fans point out, whether they think Ward shot the dog, how captivity will affect Ward, and how the destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D. continue to affect the position of everyone left on this team. »

Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Corey Stoll, Kuoth Wiel, Sarah Paker, Writer Margaret Nagle, and Producers Talk The Good Lie

17 hours ago

The Good Lie is an inspiring film about love, survival and triumph over adversity and a powerful reminder of what’s really important in life.  Philippe Falardeau directs the moving story of “The Lost Boys” who were uprooted by the brutal Sudanese Civil War that lasted from 1983 to 2005.  Young orphans of war, both boys and girls, trekked thousands of miles on foot through hostile, treacherous terrain to escape the violence and find safety.  Fifteen years later, a humanitarian effort would bring 3600 of them from Kenya’s Kakuma refugee camp to America.  The entertaining drama stars Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, Corey Stoll, Kuoth Wiel, and Sarah Baker. At a recent press conference in Nashville, Witherspoon, Oceng, Duany, Wiel, Stoll, Baker, screenwriter Margaret Nagle, producers Molly Smith, Thad Luckinbill and Trent Luckinbill, and Unicef’s Kent Page talked about the importance of telling the story with integrity, Nagle’s exhaustive research, »

Annabelle Wallis & Ward Horton Talk Annabelle and How Rosemary’S Baby Influenced Their Performances

17 hours ago

Yes – Annabelle for all intents and purposes is a spinoff of last year’s surprise success The Conjuring, taking that film’s stand-out side character (the eponymous creepy doll) and placing an entire film around it/her; but what the marketing and previews have failed to fully reveal – is that Annabelle, at heart, is much less a cash-grab Conjuring offshoot but more so an extended homage to early era Polanski, in particular Rosemary’s Baby & Repulsion.  Annabelle Wallis and Ward Horton star as Mia & John, a couple coping through the repercussions of a vicious attack. The newfound family (she having just given birth to a daughter) move into an apartment complex wherein in her husband’s absence (he’s much too busy with his burgeoning medical career), she begins to experience violent supernatural forces all seemingly stemming from that good-for-nothing doll.  You don’t even have to look at the »

Robert Downey Jr. Goes Dramatic Opposite Robert Duvall in 8 Clips from The Judge

17 hours ago

Warner Bros. has released a batch of eight The Judge clips from director David Dobkin’s (Wedding Crashers) upcoming drama.  Robert Downey Jr. plays an attorney who returns home for his mother’s funeral only to learn that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a judge who suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder.  The film marks a major departure for Dobkin, who has previously helmed comedies like Fred Claus and The Change-Up, and it’s also a big debut of sorts for Downey Jr.—The Judge is the first film released under his production banner Team Downey, which he runs with his wife and producing partner Susan Downey.  These clips offer a good snapshot of the film’s tone, which is certainly dramatic but also tinged with Downey’s signature quick-witted sense of humor. Watch the Judge clips after the jump.  The film also stars Vera FarmigaBilly Bob Thornton, »

Scorpion Recap: “Single Point of Failure”

18 hours ago

Last week's premiere of CBS's action-drama Scorpion was so fast-paced that it didn't have time to breathe, thus depriving its supposedly advanced collective brain of oxygen.  Thankfully, the follow-up episode calmed down on the l33t speak and took a bit more time between action beats and epiphanies.  The result: a much more enjoyable hour of television that is moved closer to earning its self-described level of intelligence.  The wisest movie Scorpion makes in its second showing is backing off on the braininess a little bit, and allowing each of the characters to show a little heart.  Hit the jump for our Scorpion recap. So last week I was pretty harsh on the Scorpion premiere, and I stand by the D rating.  It promoted itself as an action-drama about a team of some of the world's smartest people solving the most complex problems of modern times.  Then they drove a »
