'Suicide Squad': Will Harley Quinn Keep Her Brooklyn Accent?

2 hours ago

Just one day after revealing how intimidating it is to take on a project like Suicide Squad, actress Margot Robbie shared even more details on the project. The actress first came into prominence in late 2013 with her role in the Best Picture nominee The Wolf of Wall Street, where she played Naomi Lapaglia, the mistress-turned-wife of Leonardo DiCaprio's Jordan Belfort. In Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn also has New York roots like her previous character, but in a new interview during the Sundance Film Festival, the actress hints that Harley Quinn's Brooklyn accent won't be as strong as Naomi's.

"None of those things have been set in stone at this point, but according to the comics, she's from New York and I think Brooklyn, so there may be a slight... I couldn't imagine it would be as strong as The Wolf of Wall Street accent. The »

The cast for X-Men: Apocalypse just got bigger last week, with the additions of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp as Storm, alongside Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse. There is still very little we know about the story, except that it is set in the 1980s and will bring an end to the trilogy started by X-Men: First Class and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Access Hollywood caught up with Sophie Turner, who revealed how she learned that she won the role as Jean Grey, although it seems to have cost her a different, unspecified gig.

"I was getting out of the car to walk in to the audition. And then my agent started ringing and she was like 'Have you heard the news?' 'No, what news?' Then she was like 'Check your Twitter'. So then I checked it »

As we await The Fantastic Four trailer, debuting very soon, we saw what the costumes might look like from an artist's rendition earlier today. Now Collider has debuted a wide-ranging interview with director Josh Trank and producer Simon Kinberg, where they reveal plenty of new information about this highly-anticipated reboot, along with the first two official set photos featuring the director and star Michael B.

Is Hasbro Planning a 'GoBots' Movie?

17 hours ago

Are we about to see an epic sci-fi action adventure movie based on the animated series Challenge of the GoBots? We just might! Hasbro, who now own the rights to the transforming toys, has applied for a new Gobots trademark, which seems to indicate they are planning a revival of the dormant property. But in what form will it take? That is not yet known.

The trademark, which is brand new and not a renewal was applied for under 'distribution of motion pictures, ongoing television programs' and 'toys, games and playthings, namely, toy vehicles and accessories for use therewith'. This could simply mean that they are gearing up to launch a new toy line, but it does hint at the possibility of a live-action movie or possibly a new animated series, which could lead to bigger things in the future.

'Turbo Kid' Trailer: A Post-Apocalyptic BMX Adventure

17 hours ago

The 2015 Sundance Film Festival is currently in full swing, with tonight marking the world premiere of the futuristic coming-of-age thriller Turbo Kid. If you aren't in Park City, Utah to check it out, Epic Pictures has just released the first trailer for the feature film debut of directors Anouk Whissell, Fran&#231ois Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell. The movie first began as a short film, as a contest entry for the horror anthology The ABCs of Death. While it eventually lost out to Lee Hardcastle's T is for Toilet, producer Ant Timpson asked the filmmakers if they would consider turning their story into a full-length feature.

The story is set in the ruined post-apocalyptic world of 1997, and follows an orphan known as The Kid (Munro Chambers), who survives on his own through a drought-ridden nuclear winter, traversing the Wasteland on his BMX, scavenging for scraps to trade for a scant supply of water. »

'Star Wars' Spinoff Gets 'Cinderella' Writer Chris Weitz

18 hours ago

Less than a month after the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off parted ways with screenwriter Gary Whitta, the project has found a new writer with Chris Weitz signing on to take over writing duties. Gary Whitta completed a first draft on the project, although no story details have been confirmed, and it isn't known if Chris Weitz will start over completely from scratch, or if he will use elements of Gary Whitta's first draft. We reported last week that the spinoff may feature both Boba Fett and Han Solo, which will be reportedly shot in Mexico.

While nothing official has been released about the plot, a rumor surfaced last month that claimed the story centers on space pirates trying to steal the plans to the original Death Star. Of course, even if those details were true, the script could change drastically with this new writer on board. »
