Bryan Singer Officially Directing X-men: Apocalypse

2 hours ago

Four or five months ago, the notion of Bryan Singer returning for X-Men: Apocalypse, seemed iffy.  Then, as the movie performed and treatment pages were teased, it seemed well within the realm of possibility.  And for the past month or so we've just assumed it was going to happen.  Now Singer's deal has closed and he's officially onboard.  So there it is.  Apocalypse grossed over $700 million worldwide, so they're bound to want to repeat that success. The story will follow the First Class gang along with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine into the 1980s.  We also know from the treatment page teased a few months ago that the Four Horseman will again be making an appearance.  Singer will direct the film from a script he’s been developing with Days of Future Past screenwriter Simon Kinberg and X2 scribes Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris.  The release date is May 27th, 2016.  Hit »

Peter Dinklage Takes Lead Role in Violent Western The Thicket

3 hours ago

I love westerns and I love Peter Dinklage, so this could pretty much be the perfect combo.  I'm even sidestepping my usual misgivings about posting about "development" status (i.e. -  this thing could very well still not happen) because this new film, The Thicket, sounds like it could be a lot of fun. It's based on a novel by Joe Anderson and will be produced by Gianni Nunnari (Seven, The Departed, 300) under his Hollywood Gang shingle.  Dinklage and his manager David Ginsberg will co-produce along with Nunnari's partner Shannon Gaulding. There's no word on a director yet, but it could excel in the right hands.  Hit the jump for more on Peter Dinklage in The Thicket. Dinklage's character is called "Shorty" and on first glance bears more than a passing resemblance to his character Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones (at least how Tyrion behaved in the beginning of »

Hulu Takes Bad Robot’s 11/22/63 Series; J.J. Abrams and Stephen King to Executive Produce

3 hours ago

Even though J.J. Abrams is currently busy in a galaxy far, far away, he’s still got time to turn back the clock to November 22, 1963 to explore what might happen if someone got the opportunity to go back in time and stop the assassination of President John F. Kennedy because it was just announced that Hulu gave the adaptation of Stephen King’s 11/22/63 a direct-to-series order. Bad Robot, King, executive producer-writer Bridget Carpenter and Warner Bros. Television will turn the book into a nine-hour event series.  Hit the jump for more on 11/22/63. Hulu made the announcement today, making this Hulu and Wbtv’s very first original programming collaboration.  Abrams, King, Carpenter and Bryan Burk will all executive produce.  Here’s what Abrams had to say about the project: “I’ve been a fan of Stephen King since I was in junior high school.

John Noble Talks Sleepy Hollow Season 2, What His Character Has Been Doing, Getting to Play Multi-Layered Characters, and More

4 hours ago

After its shocking Season 1 finale, the hit Fox drama series Sleepy Hollow is back for Season 2, with all-new crazy and wild adventures, as the heroic duo of Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) must again fend off the forces of evil to save not only their town, but the world.  Henry Parish (John Noble) was the only one who came away from the events of last season unscathed, as Ichabod was buried alive in a coffin, Abbie was trapped in purgatory, Ichabod’s wife, Katrina (Katia Winter), was kidnapped by the Headless Horseman, Capt. Frank Irving (Orlando Jones) was behind bars for a murder he did not commit, and Abbie’s sister, Jenny (Lyndie Greenwood), was among the wreckage of a horrific car crash.  Obviously, there wouldn’t be a show anymore if that meant the end for all of those characters, so the fun will be »

Collider Goes to MondoCon: Over 25 Poster, Toy, and Vinyl Images from Mondo’s First Convention

4 hours ago

Take one glance at my family room and it's obvious the impact that Mondo has had on my collecting habits. Framed prints line my walls, many of which are either Mondo releases or works from artists that I became familiar with while perusing the gallery's archives. Safe to say, then, that it was an absolute privilege to be able to attend the inaugural MondoCon in Austin this Saturday. Held at The Marchesa Hall & Theater, the convention boasted a more intimate setting than convention goers may be accustomed to. In reality, you could cover the two halls that made up the "convention floor" in a matter of minutes if you just wanted to get a quick overview of everything the exhibitors had to offer. Like with any Tyler Stout print, though, those who took time to stop and admire the details were rewarded with a variety of items from some of today's best artists, »

Fall Pilot Review: Forever

4 hours ago

ABC's Forever is essentially a patchwork of other successful television series.  In fact, Forever may be the most calculated of the fall premieres by following a simple formula for success (one that CBS is usually champion of).  There's a procedural aspect, a little bit of the supernatural, romance, mystery, and all of it is tied together by the handsome Welsh face of Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four), a doctor with a little bit of a death wish. Sure we've seen it all before, but is there something about this one that's different?  Hit the jump to find out if that alchemy works, and if Forever deserves a spot on your Dv-r. Some pilots are talkier than most, explaining the purpose and the show upfront as fast and as clearly as possible to hook viewers whose attentions are being pulled in a myriad of other directions.  Forever goes even further by being »

The Films of David Fincher: Alien 3

4 hours ago

[With the upcoming release of his new film Gone Girl, I’m taking a look back at the work of director David Fincher.  These articles contain spoilers.] “It was a baptism by fire.” David Fincher doesn’t have particularly fond memories of his directorial debut, Alien 3.  It was a troubled production before he even came on board, and despite his wealth of experience having worked on music videos and commercials, he was thrown into a situation that would easily scare away experienced feature film directors.  Call it hubris on Fincher’s part, but the hellish production on Alien 3 was a key part of his development.  And yet despite all of the problems on set, Alien 3 is not without its redeeming aspects. Following Alien, a sci-fi horror classic, was a daunting task.  Following Alien and Aliens, an action horror classic, was madness.  A third film was inevitable, and 20th Century Fox set a release date before they even had a finished script.  That finished script would never come. 20th Century Fox had signed off an idea by Vincent Ward, »

5 hours ago

Tommy Wirkola Says Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 Script is Complete; Is Jeremy Renner Too Busy to Return?

5 hours ago

I know I’m probably in the minority on this one, but Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was an irreverent, ridiculous blast and I absolutely cannot wait for a sequel.  Even though the film got trounced by critics, it still managed to make $55.7 million at the domestic box office and accumulate $170.6 million overseas to go along with it.  The film only ran Paramount a $50 million production tab, so it wasn’t much of a surprise when the studio announced plans to develop a sequel, but there hasn’t been much talk of it since. However, writer-director Tommy Wirkola is busy making the rounds for his upcoming release, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, and during one interview, he confirmed that he’s written the script and that the folks at Paramount dig it.  Hit the jump for more on Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2.

Oliver Stone Wants Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Star in Edward Snowden Movie

5 hours ago

Oliver Stone, eager to be on the pulse of current events even if he doesn't know how the pulse is beating, is set to write and direct a movie based on Nsa leaker Edward Snowden.  The film will be based on the book Time of the Octopus, which was written by Snowden's lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, and "is considered the closest thing to a documented account of the events since Snowden first released the documents."  Americans were shocked at the news that their communications were being "monitored" (even though the news was widely misconstrued), and then went back to putting their every thought on Facebook and Twitter. According to Variety, Stone has offered the role of Snowden to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and while the actor has agreed to do it, negotiations have yet to begin.  If the deal is made, production would likely begin at the end of this year or early »

Rumor: Deadpool Movie Gunning for a PG-13 Rating?

6 hours ago

Not only is the Deadpool movie finally happening, but 20th Century Fox also gave it a February 12th, 2016 release date, too.  Why now all of sudden?  Perhaps it’s got something to do with the fact that the filmmakers apparently figured out a way to make Deadpool a PG-13 film. Even though the character may deserve an R-rated movie, going the PG-13 route still seemed inevitable.  The quality of the content should always be top priority, but moviemaking is still a business and when you’ve got a business to run, dishing out a product that cuts off a significant amount of the target audience isn’t the smartest approach.  Hit the jump for more on the Deadpool movie rating rumor. In the latest episode of Meet the Movie Press over at Schmoes Know, Mark Reilly revealed: "I heard from the director that they finally figured out the script and »

Showrunner Bruno Heller Talks Gotham, Avoiding a “Villain of the Week” Format, How the Films Impacted Their Approach to the Show, and More

7 hours ago

One of the most highly anticipated new shows of the season is the Fox drama series Gotham.  From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome) and with a beautifully cinematic pilot directed by Danny Cannon (the CSI franchise, Nikita), it is the origin story for a number of the characters in the Batman universe, including Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler and Poison Ivy, as it shows what made them the formidable adversaries that they eventually become.  At its core, it is the story of Detective James Gordon’s (Benjamin McKenzie) rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and it chronicles the birth of one of the most popular superheroes of our time. During this recent interview to promote the show’s September 22nd premiere, showrunner Bruno Heller talked about not doing a villain-of-the-week format, how much the city of Gotham shapes the story that they’re telling, »

7 hours ago

Based on the graphic novel of the same name, The Scribbler follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman who is confronting her destructive mental illness by using an experimental method, called The Siamese Burn, that’s designed to eliminate multiple personalities.  Surrounded by a colorful cast of characters who keep ending up dead, Suki begins to wonder just which personality might turn out to be her.  Directed by John Suits, the film also stars Garret Dillahunt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Michael Imperioli, Gina Gershon, Eliza Dushku, Billy Campbell and Sasha Grey. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Katie Cassidy talked about how she fought for this role, how hands-on the development of the character was, how much the tattoos and piercings helped her become Suki, that she wanted to burn the wig when she was done with the shoot, working in Linda Vista Community Hospital, which is said to be haunted, »

Matt Damon Circling The Great Wall for Hero Director Zhang Yimou

8 hours ago

The film has been in development for years with Ed Zwick (Glory) previously set to direct with Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker attached to play the leads.  However, that plan crumbled, and Zwick eventually left to go direct Pawn Sacrifice, so Zhang Yimou (Hero) stepped in.  The story—based on an idea by Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull and World War Z author Max Brooks—explores the mystery of why the Great Wall of China was built.  You think it was to keep out the Mongolian hordes? You fool!  It Is So Much More.  It's also a tourist destination and a way for studios to tap into the lucrative Chinese market. Hit the jump for more. According to Deadline, Damon is interested in working with Zhang, and the two almost got together on Flowers of War, but that film ultimately starred Christian Bale.  Scheduling conflicts might get in the way »

First Clip from South Park: Season 18 Premiere Takes Aim at the Washington Redskins

18 hours ago

Even though it’s only been a year and there’s even been a video game in the interim, it seems like forever since we got a new episode of South Park.  Thankfully, the wait is almost over as the show will be returning for its 18th(!) season this Wednesday.  The first clip for the new season aired during today’s Redskins-Eagles game, which was no accident since the show’s first target this year will be the offensive name of Washington’s football team.  The NFL has been in the news a lot the past few weeks, so it will be interesting to see if Trey Parker and Matt Stone weave those elements into their scathing satire as well. Hit the jump to check out the clip from the Season 18 premiere of South Park.  The long-running series returns on Wednesday at 10pm Est on Comedy Central. Via South Park Studios. »

3 New Stretch Clips Remind Patrick Wilson not to Hassle The Hoff

19 hours ago

As I’ve said on multiple occasions, I’m a big Joe Carnahan fan, and I can’t wait to see his latest film, Stretch.  The movie stars Patrick Wilson as “a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back.”  These three clips show off the film’s delightful lunacy, and I’m reminded of how well he utilized Chris Pine in Smokin’ Aces by getting him to play against type.  But the real scene-stealer could be David Hasselhoff, who, as we can see from one of these clips, does not like to be kept waiting. Hit the jump to check out the Stretch clips.  The film also stars Ed Helms, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Norman Reedus, James Badge Dale, Ray Liotta, and Shaun Toub.  Hopefully, we’ll get a release date soon.

The Strain Recap: “The Third Rail”

19 hours ago

Hunting down and fighting monsters is what The Strain does best, and "The Third Rail" was an excellent showcase for it.  As the gang assembles in order to attack the Master in his lair, chaos and looting carries on all around them.  But the rag-tag bunch on the hunt, as well as those left back at the pawnshop, have a difficult time with one another.  The vampirism also claims another victim close to home.  Hit the jump for why, "you've been waiting for this your whole life, haven't you?  Well congratulations on the vampire apocalypse." The Strain has done a great job of revealing different aspects of its vampires slowly.  We know that there are three basic tiers: The Master at the top, his humanoid servants (like Eichhorst) next, and on the bottom, a legion of baby vamps who are under the Master's control and unable to reason.  We also »

Masters Of Sex Recap: “One For The Money, Two For The Show”

19 hours ago

For so many reasons, it's difficult to believe that "One for the Money and Two for the Show" is Masters of Sex's penultimate episode this season.  It was a season that started out with such excellent potential regarding a shifting paradigm in Ginny and Bill's relationship, even introducing a race-related storyline that was primed for something so different on television (one that could have even made Masters fully step out of Mad Men's shadow by meaningfully incorporating minority characters and perspectives).  Instead, the show dropped that Buell Green narrative quickly and unceremoniously, jumped forward in time, and ended back at a place emotionally before "Fight" or even the season opener.  Hit the jump for why maybe the show needs someone to tell them they look weird in this tie. The worst first: what has become of Ginny and Bill's relationship?  As mentioned before the jump, Masters of Sex came out »
