WonderCon: Moon Bloodgood and Seychelle Gabriel on the Big Changes Coming to Falling Skies Season 4

1 hour ago

When Falling Skies season 4 starts this June on TNT, fans will see a new direction for the show.  Much of that is due to the influence of brand new showrunner David Eick (Battlestar Galactica), who took over this season for the departing Remi Aubuchon.  Characters will evolve, storylines will branch out and new love triangles will emerge, but the looming alien threat will remain as the central driving force in the show. Stars Moon Bloodgood (Dr. Ann Glass) and Seychelle Gabriel (Lourdes Delgado) were at WonderCon today with some of their fellow cast members to give fans a sneak peek at the upcoming season.  I had a chance to speak with them before the panel about what’s coming for their characters and how the show’s changes will affect them.  Falling Skies also stars Noah Wylie, Will Patton, Sarah Carter, Mpho Koaho and Doug Jones.  Check out what they »

At WonderCon, Sony Pictures previewed a new trailer for their upcoming ‘based-on-a-true-story’ release Deliver Us From Evil.  Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and stars Joel McHale (Community), Olivia Munn (Attack of the Show!), Edgar Ramirez (Domino) and Eric Bana (Munich) were on hand to discuss the real life exorcism the film is based on, whether the cast believes it to be true and just what separates exorcism films from other genre films.  For a full recap of the Deliver Us From Evil footage shown and bullet point highlights from the Q&A, hit the jump.

Salem Review: Wgn’s Witchy Tale Rewrites History

1 hour ago

Witches being the new vampires, Wgn (now rebranded as Wgn America, the station you once knew for Chicago Cubs games and Law & Order reruns), has jumped on the witch wagon for its first original scripted series, Salem.  It is one of two shows the network ordered straight-to-series (a risky move, meaning there's no pilot).  The other is Manhattan, a period piece about the creation of the atom bomb.  Additionally, the network has a high-profile miniseries The 10 Commandments planned, which is set to include many well-known actors and filmmakers, such as Michael CeraWes CravenLee Daniels and Gus Van Sant.  Of these projects, Salem may be the weakest to put out front first, but its bizarre mix of violence, sex and the supernatural could find an audience more easily than first appears.  Hit the jump for more. Salem takes place in the late 17th century in Salem, Massachusetts, at the »

Rebecca Mader Reveals Which Wizard Of Oz Characters Might be Coming to Once Upon A Time at WonderCon

1 hour ago

During a roundtable interview with press before the Once Upon a Time panel, recurring guest star Rebecca Mader was talking about some of the things she’s excited about seeing as the third season nears its end.  Most of the things she mentioned have already been reported elsewhere, but there was one name she dropped that came as a bit of a surprise.  Warning: There are spoilers ahead for upcoming episodes, so read on after the jump, only if you really want to know.  Mader, who plays a version of the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz, said that the show will soon be heading back to Oz and that we’ll meet more characters from that world.  We’ve already met a flying monkey who turned out to be the Wizard (Christopher Gorham) and it’s been reported that Glinda will be introduced soon as »

Weekend Box Office: Captain America: The Winter Soldier Claims Top Spot, Easter Weekend Boosts Religious Films

2 hours ago

While the top five remains unchanged from yesterday's box office report, the real items of interest are the religious films that populated the top ten.  (An argument can also be made for just how poor a showing Wally Pfister's Transcendence has had.)  While Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Rio 2 were once again the only competition for the top spot, newcomer Heaven Is for Real made a real push into the top three, nearly bumping the animated family-friendly sequel from its perch.  Though they dropped off from their position's in last week's box office, God's Not Dead and Noah managed to hang in the top ten, perhaps helped by the holiday weekend.  Take a look at the top ten box office estimates below: Title Weekend Total 1.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier  $26,200,000  $201.0 2.  Rio 2  $22,700,000  $75.6 3.  Heaven is for Real  $22,200,000  $29.3 4.  Transcendence  $11,000,000  $11.0 5.  A Haunted House 2  $8,800,000  $8.8 6.  Divergent  $5,900,000  $134.1 7.  Draft Day  $5,890,000  $19.5 8.  Oculus  $5,200,000  $21.2 9.  God's Not Dead »

Hollywood! Adapt This: Teen Titans

3 hours ago

DC Comics' television properties that skew towards a younger demographic have done quite well over the years.  Smallville enjoyed a decade on the air before passing the baton to the the relatively new series Arrow.  Spinning off of that show's success, The CW is also bringing a new series based on The Flash to TV screens later this year.  Gotham will be debuting on the small screen this year as well, though it will be centered on James Gordon rather than Bruce Wayne/Batman.  While solid writing, proper casting, and high-quality production values are clearly the foundations to the success of these properties, targeting a younger market has certainly helped.  That's why today's adaptation suggestion feels tailor-made for today's TV audiences.  Hit the jump for more.  Hollywood!  Adapt this: Teen Titans. What It's About:  Starting in a 1964 issue of "The Brave and the Bold," the Teen Titans unofficially began as a junior Justice League, »

X-men: Days Of Future Past WonderCon Panel Recap Featuring Simon Kinberg and New Footage

13 hours ago

At WonderCon 2014, 20th Century Fox presented select footage from their upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Of course there was the big white elephant in the room – which everyone chose to ignore/avoid (the panel was curiously the only one without any audience questions).  The focus was strictly on the film itself.  Writer/Producer Simon Kinberg was on hand to discuss adapting the beloved comic, getting time travel ‘right’ and making-up for X-Men: The Last Stand.  For the full recap of the footage shown and bullet point highlights of the Q&A, hit the jump. Much of the ‘new’ X-Men footage screened can be found in the ‘opening battle scene’ currently making the rounds on the Internet.  You can see that here, if you so choose.  The footage screened for WonderCon attendees covered a bit more of this beginning sequence -- as the various B-level X-Men (Ice Man, Blink, »

Olivia Munn Talks Deliver Us From Evil, Mortdecai with Johnny Depp, and the Final Season of The Newsroom at WonderCon

13 hours ago

From filmmaker Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), Deliver Us From Evil tells the story of the real-life series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes that police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana) began investigating in New York.  As frightening events occur around the city, Sarchie teams up with an unconventional priest (Édgar Ramírez) who is schooled in the rituals of exorcism. While at WonderCon to promote the film’s July 2nd theatrical release, actress Olivia Munn (who plays Sarchie’s wife and the mother of his child) spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how she got involved with this project, why she only likes horror movies if they’re based on a true story, creating a great family core at the center of the film, why having Magic Mike and the first season of The Newsroom come out at the same time changed the way people saw her, »

WonderCon: Into The Storm Panel Recap Featuring Director Steven Quale, Richard Armitage, Arlen Escarpeta, Jeremy Sumpter and Max Deacon

14 hours ago

“What would it actually be like if you were in the eye of a tornado.”  At WonderCon 2014, Warner Brothers presented select footage from their upcoming found footage release Into the Storm.  You’ve probably seen a teaser for the film already – and if not, see it here.  The under-the-radar film concerns a group of extreme storm chasers who document the ‘storm-of-the-century’ when it hits a small town.  Basically it’s ‘Twister On Steroids’. Filmmaker Steven Quale (Final Destination 5) and stars Richard Armitage (The Hobbit trilogy), Arlen Escarpeta (Friday the 13th), Jeremy Sumpter (Peter Pan) & Max Deacon (I, Anna) were on hand to discuss the intense shoot, the found footage genre and ol’ Twister (aside: isn’t it odd how that Jan De Bont flick has become somewhat of a cult classic in recent years).  For a full recap of the footage shown and bullet point highlights of the Q&A, »

14 hours ago

This morning, before the cast of The 100 hit the stage at WonderCon, I had the opportunity to participate in a roundtable interview with stars Bob Morley and Eliza Taylor.  They discussed the shifting dynamic between Bellamy and Clarke, family relationships, the dark and gritty nature of the show, and teaming up to emerge as leaders of their group.  For fans of the two as a pairing, they had a thing or two to say about “shipping” and what they think about the fans’ reaction to their characters.  Hit the jump to watch. Bob Morley Time Index: 00:24 – Talks about the fallout of Bellamy finding out he didn’t actually kill Chancellor Jaha and having sympathy for his character. 1:36 – Addresses whether or not Bellamy will step up and be a better leader.  Teases that it will create a new dynamic between him and Clarke. 2:42 – Explains how his character »

WonderCon: The Secret Service Footage Preview; Get Ready for Colin Firth: Action Superstar

15 hours ago

The biggest surprise at WonderCon today was 20th Century Fox’s presentation of exclusive new footage from their upcoming adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic The Secret Service being directed by Matthew Vaughn.   For those unfamiliar: the comic book is basically ‘Harry Potter’ meets ‘James Bond’.  Colin Firth stars as a superspy who takes his hooligan nephew under his wing and teaches him how to be James-Bond-like.  An early scene from the film was screened in addition to a brief teaser afterwards.  For highlights of The Secret Service movie footage, hit the jump. The scene opens with Firth scolding his good-for-nothing nephew (Taron Egerton). Egerton’s just dented some other fellow’s car – and Firth is none too pleased about it.  Sipping a glass of beer in a pub, the posh Firth lectures his nephew on manners. It’s hard to make out exactly what was being said – the WonderCon »

WonderCon: Lucy Panel Recap Featuring Luc Besson Q&A and New Footage

16 hours ago

At WonderCon 2014, Universal Pictures previewed select footage from Luc Besson’s Lucy.  The Scarlett Johansson led action-flick sports a number of impressive action sequences, two of which premiered to the attentive audience of WonderCon.  After the screening, Besson was on hand to discuss coming up with the premise of Lucy, the gender dynamics of his films and a funny story from his cult classic The Fifth Element.  For a full recap of the footage shown and bullet point highlights from the Q&A, hit the jump. If you’re not familiar with the premise of the film, I highly advise you watch the trailer here. The two clips shown both heavily focused on the stellar action of the picture. In the first scene, Johansson escapes from the shackles of her imprisonment, blows away four men with guns, stops, notices she’s been shot in the shoulder, proceeds to dig the »

Brannon Braga Talks Salem, Balancing Fantasy and History, Rooting the Show in Horror, and More

16 hours ago

This Sunday, April 20th, Wgn America premieres Salem, the network's first venture into original programing, staring Shane West, Janet Montgomery, Ashley Madekwe, Seth Gabel, Xander Berkeley, Iddo Goldberg, Tazmin Merchant and Elise Eberle. Salem travels back to 17th Century Colonial Massachusetts for an alternate look at one of the darkest chapters in American history, approaching the infamous era from the point of view that witches were not only real, but manipulating the gruesome events of the trials to their will. The pilot kicks the show off on a strong note; a fun and creepy mixture of horror, fantasy and history that sets itself apart with singular imagery, an engaging mythology and a uniquely sensual approach to dark magic. I recently had the opportunity to visit the set in Shreveport, Louisiana where the town of Salem has been meticulously reconstructed from the ground up. While I was there I sat down »

WonderCon: Godzilla Panel Recap Featuring Gareth Edwards Q&A and New Footage

16 hours ago

At WonderCon 2014, Warner Brothers presented select footage from their upcoming remake/reboot of Godzilla.  Filmmaker Gareth Edwards was on hand to discuss recreating the titular monster, the fantastic marketing for the film and the themes of the picture.  For a full recap of the footage shown (Including A Full Scene With Godzilla About To Fight Another Kaiju) and bullet point highlights of the Q&A, hit the jump. The panel ended with the new footage but why bury the lede – here’s a rundown of just what happens in the scene screened. We open on Aaron Taylor-Johnson on a monorail train. All of the sudden the electricity goes out and the monorail comes to a dead stop. Cut to Ken Watanabe on a helicopter carrier watching as something huge approaches underneath the waves. The creature travels right beneath the ship he’s on and crests once past, capsizing nearby ships. »

16 hours ago

It’s mid-April – which means it’s time for a slew of articles covering Anaheim’s WonderCon: aka the mini, nicer, friendlier Comic-Con. I’ll be recapping all the ‘bigger’ panels of the day from Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal and Sony Pictures hopefully in a moderately timely manner. First up for the day, Warner Brothers previewed their upcoming slate of features starting with Edge Of Tomorrow, the Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt "Groundhog Day meets [insert-your-alien-invasion-film-of-choice-here] mash-up." Co-star Bill Paxton was on hand to preview some exclusive footage from the upcoming sci-fi flick and offer insight into its making.

It opens with Tom Cruise in a plane, getting ready to be dropped down into the middle of a war – when the plane is hit and explodes. »

Top 5: Gone Girl Trailer, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Set Visit, Transcendence, The Expendables 3 Set Visit, Zack Snyder Talks Batman Vs. Superman

21 hours ago

I've used this space on a few occasions to profess my love for Espn Films' 30 for 30 documentary series and today's opening paragraph will get a similar treatment. Director Zak Levitt's aptly titled Bad Boys debuted this past Thursday night and, even as someone who grew up adoring the Chicago Bulls, I loved almost every second of it (even with his Detroit roots, I could have lived without the Kid Rock narration). The film focuses on the years of Detroit Pistons basketball known as "The Bad Boys Era", which included back-to-back NBA Championships for the franchise in '89 and '90. As is often the case with 30 for 30 films, Levitt does a nice job of framing the Pistons' iconic run within a societal context; in this case, the 1967 Detroit riot. In doing this, the pic not only offers a fascinating perspective of the team itself but also great insight into what their »

Friday Box Office: Captain America: The Winter Soldier Battles Rio 2 for the Top Spot, While Heaven Is For Real Trumps Transcendence

19 April 2014 10:02 AM, PDT

This Good Friday wasn't so great for Wally Pfister's directorial debut, the sci-fi drama Transcendence, as the film debuted in a sub-$5 million opening.  The film barely managed to stay ahead of this weekend's other overlooked (and for good reason) debut, A Haunted House 2, and that's only if current estimates hold.  The Johnny Depp-starrer received no help from critics as it currently holds a 19% rating on Rt, and failed to impress our own Matt Goldberg.  What did impress audiences this week, or at least a certain subsection of them, was the religious-themed Wednesday debut, Heaven Is for Real, which claims Friday's third spot (and reclaims its budget) leading into Easter weekend. None of the new entries, however, proved to be a contest for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Rio 2, which repeat their box office rivalry from last week.  It's still pretty close, as estimates only »
