Jamie Foxx to Play the Lead in Mike Tyson Biopic

54 minutes ago

After bringing Ray Charles and Electro to life (yes, some of us consider those equally challenging), Jamie Foxx is taking his game to the next level by signing on to play Mike Tyson in an untitled Mike Tyson biopic to be written by Terence Winter (Wolf of Wall Street, Boardwalk Empire). 

Variety reports that Foxx's manager Rick Yorn is producing the project which isn't yet attached to a studio. 

Jamie Foxx Mike Tyson? Count me in.

Two New International 'Big Hero 6' Posters!

1 hour ago

I'm very interested in Big Hero 6. I know close to nothing about the property, so I finally get to join the average joe in letting the charm and look of the movie pull me in instead of self-made expectations. 

I'm loving the design of Big Hero 6 so far, these international posters are no exception. 

The film stars T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Maya Rudolph, Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Damon Wayans Jr, Genesis Rodriguez, James Cromwell, Alan Tudyk and Daniel Henney.

"Big Hero 6" is a heartfelt comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi No-Ginger, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns »

Shailene Woodley Sees Blood in a 'Divergent' Deleted Scene

2 hours ago

A gruesome deleted scene from Divergent has hit the web, in advance of the DVD/Blu-Ray release August 5.

In the short clip, Tris (Shailene Woodley) awakens to bloodcurdling screams. When she and her friends run over, they are horrified to discover than Edward (Ben Lamb) has been stabbed in the eye with a butter knife.

Woodley’s character attempts to comfort the frazzled Edward. Peter (Miles Teller) suspiciously creeps up behind her to watch the carnage. He doesn’t look shocked at all. Hmm…

Book readers will appreciate the clip as a pivotal scene that teases what’s to come for the 2015 sequel, Insurgent.

The scene is brutal, bloody and difficult to watch. It is understandable to see why Lionsgate decided to cut the scene from the final film – the studio likely wanted to guarantee a PG-13 rating. Nonetheless, director Neil Burger’s clip nailed the sense of overwhelming danger »

Tarantino Debuts First Official Poster for 'The Hateful Eight'

7 hours ago

For months, pulp-loving audiences have gripped the edge of their seats, anxiously following the “Will he, won’t he” saga of Quentin Tarantino’s proposed new project, The Hateful Eight. Tomorrow, after much speculation, Tarantino will silence any doubts by premiering the film’s first official poster as an exclusive in the new issue of Empire Magazine.

The glorious poster shows a silhouetted horse-drawn stagecoach trampling over a snowy abyss, with an unsettling amount of blood trailing behind the carriage.

A 2015 release date is also confirmed on the poster, with distribution by The Weinstein Company. The movie will be filmed in 70mm Super Cinemascope, just as the director promised in a leaked script several months ago.

For those who have not been following, Tarantino’s screenplay was leaked online by bloggers in January. Notoriously sensitive to outsiders interfering with his vision, the director halted all production and said he would »

Warner Brothers Launches a New Franchise with 'Dragonriders'

7 hours ago

Harry Potter had a “Hungarian Horntail.” The Hobbit has “Smaug the Stupendous.” Warner Brothers has struck gold twice with its heroes facing off against the flying, scaled beasts. Now, Warners is betting big that dragons can be allies, hoping to launch a new franchise after the studio optioned the rights to the bestselling novel series, Dragonriders of Pern.

Dragonriders first debuted in 1967 by author Anne McCaffrey. In the decades since, the hugely successful sci-fi series has spawned 22 novels and a handful of short stories.

The series plays out like a World of Warcraft game. Inhabitants of a pre-industrial society called Pern are divided into four classes — Weyrfolk (dragonriders), Holders (city-dwellers), Crafters (tradesmen), and Holdless (travelers and vagrants).

Pernese are primarily threatened by the Thread, a dangerous spore that rains down on the planet and eviscerates organic material, including plants, animals and humans.

To combat the spore, the Weyrfolk ride intelligent, »

Vin Diesel Reveals Iggy Azalea Cameo in 'Fast & Furious 7'

8 hours ago

Love her or hate her, there is no denying that female rapper Iggy Azalea has dominated summer music, with the ubiquitous hits, “Fancy” and “Problem.” Now, she’ll be throttling into movie theaters with a cameo in next year’s Fast & Furious 7.

Co-star Vin Diesel dropped the bomb in an interview with a Paris radio station, when he was being interviewed as part of the press junket for Guardians of the Galaxy. The affable star was asked which song would most likely make him dance, with choices including tracks by Ariana Grande, Jason Derulo and rapper Azalea.

Diesel, quickly realizing his publicist was about to give him an earful, told the interviewer:

Iggy Azalea, I just worked with her two weeks ago. I guess you'll be the first person that knows this. She has a cameo in ‘Fast & Furious 7,’ so I'm going to be loyal to Iggy.”

Rian Johnson Jokes About 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' Inspiration

29 July 2014 2:47 PM, PDT

If you look carefully at J.J. Abrams in his video released last week, in which he teased a new and improved X-Wing, there is a slight tremor in his voice. He reveals very little information, keenly aware of the Sith Lord studio exec’s open hand pointed directly at Abrams’s neck.

So much of the upcoming Star Wars production has been cloaked in secrecy, and that does not look to be changing anytime soon. But at least Rian Johnson — who was recently tapped to direct Episode VIII and oversee Episode IX — is good humored about it.

In a podcast interview for Filmspotting’s 500th episode, set to air this weekend, Johnson assured fans that Lucasfilm did not hire him because of his skills.

Johnson jested:

“I can only assume it was a clerical error, like in the movie Brazil.  There’s a Brian Johnson out there who is really mad. »

Evangeline Lilly's 'Ant-Man' Character is Officially Hope Van Dyne

29 July 2014 12:02 PM, PDT

There was some confusion around Ant-Man this weekend with press-releases and comments from Marvel's inner circle about the name of Evangeline Lilly's newly announced character.

On Saturday we learned that the Lost and The Hobbit star was playing Hank Pym's daughter Hope, but the last name oscillated between being Hope Pym, daughter of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne: a character who appears in an alternate reality in the comics as the villain Red Queen, and Hope Van Dyne, a name that doesn't appear in the comics. 

Now, official word has cycled back and it's Officially "Hope Van Dyne."

Also, just got official confirmation that @EvangelineLilly's character in our @AntMan movie is named Hope Van Dyne.

Good news is we're now more likely to see Evangeline Lilly take on the Wasp persona  if she gets her hands on some Pym Particles then going crazy like a Red Queen, »

Comic-Con 2014: Constantine Pilot Review

29 July 2014 11:12 AM, PDT

After showing the superheroes with The Flash and then supervillains in Gotham, Warner Bros. turned their attention to the supernatural.  At San Diego Comic-Con, the audience was surprised with the full pilot of Constantine, the new DC Comics show on NBC. Constantine will fit right in with NBC’s Friday primetime lineup due to its scarier tone, but was the pilot any good?

The show starts with Constantine attempting to battle the demons he sees by checking himself into a mental institution. Matt Ryan, who plays Constantine, exudes the swagger needed to pull off the character and gives a good performance throughout the pilot. Constantine finds out that even in the mental institution, he can’t escape the demons that terrorize him. He encounters someone possessed by a demon that gives him a warning about a family friend who is in danger.

Constantine travels to America where we are introduced »

New Trailer Hits for 'The Maze Runner'

29 July 2014 10:14 AM, PDT

Yahoo just dropped a crazy trailer for The Maze Runner, based on the first in a series of three young adult novels by James Dashner.

The movie follows a boy named Thomas (played by Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien), who wakes up with no memory, trapped near a gigantic stone-walled maze called The Glade with a group of other young men. Every night, “runners” go into the maze and try to find a way out. No one has ever made it back alive.

We get a serious Lord of the Flies-meets-Hunger Games vibe, and I am 100% on board. Especially since the maze is filled with massive, mutated spider-like creatures called Grievers, who don’t look like they’re any fun to play with.

Wes Ball is directing, making his feature-length debut after primarily working in visual effects and shorts.

Ball seems like the man for the job, understandably so. »

More New Photos from 'Hitman: Agent 47'

29 July 2014 9:49 AM, PDT

20th Century Fox has released some more new official photos from "Hitman: Agent 47" starring Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, Dan Bakkedahl, Ciaran Hinds.

The film is directed by Aleksander Bach from a screenplay written by Kyle Ward, Skip Woods, and Michael Finch.

A genetically-engineered assassin created from the recombinant DNA of five of the world's most dangerous criminals. The fact that the DNA came from multiple ethnicities allows 47 to blend in to a certain degree in most places in the world, or at least not look immediately suspicious and out-of-place. His name comes from the last two digits of a bar code on the back of his head – 640509-040147. He is a tall, bald, blue-eyed, no-nonsense individual and usually wears a suit with black leather gloves and a red tie and is known to disguise himself. Engineered from conception to be the perfect killer, 47's strength, speed, »

Zoe Saldana Talks 'Avatar 2,3,4,...'

29 July 2014 9:05 AM, PDT

How many sequels are there going to for James Cameron's Avatar? Two? Three? Honestly, I've lost count. 

The beautiful Zoe Saldana is out going the press round for Guardians of the Galaxy, and was asked about the status of the Avatar sequels, which will shoot back to back to back to... You get the idea.

Here's what Saldana had to say:

James Cameron is still working on the final draughts of the script and then everyone in the cast will get the call.We’re going to be shooting mainly in Los Angeles and that will make things easier for me since I live there.Because we’re doing the sequels back-to-back and it’s going to take at least eight or nine months or more to finish the (three) films.

What are your thoughts on Avatar? I liked it, but, like most, I thought the story wasn't up to par with the visuals. »

New Trailer for NBC's 'Constantine'

29 July 2014 8:41 AM, PDT

With the exception of Marvel's Agents of Shield, and a few 1/2 hr comedies, I don't watch much network TV. I'm no hipster about it, I just find it a little daunting to commit 22 hours a year to a TV show (unless it's Lost, but even then the last three seasons were only 13 episodes each), where as cable usually gets the job done (with much better results) in 10 - 12 episodes. Just look at Breaking Bad, True Detective, Fargo or Sons of Anarchy to see how cable is killing it lately.

At any rate, we're here to talk about network TV. NBC is brining DC Comics' Constantine to network TV, and you can see the new trailer below.

Here's a quick synopsis:

Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine, an irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert waging war against the forces of darkness — from both within himself and the outside world. »

Joe Cornish Being Looked At For King Kong's prequel 'Skull Island'

29 July 2014 7:13 AM, PDT

In 2012, Legendary Pictures sent shivers down the spines in Hall H when they teased a snippet of Godzilla’s iconic roar. On Saturday, crowds trembled again when the studio unleashed Skull Island — an origin story about King Kong in all his chest-thumping glory.

Godzilla writer Max Borenstein will be writing the script for Island, which is expected to include an army of dinosaurs and other mythic creatures who roam the island under the giant ape’s domain. The movie is due out November 4, 2016.

According to the good folks over at Deadline, Legendary is eyeing director Joe Cornish to helm the ship.

Cornish is red-hot these days after directing 2011’s stellar Attack the Block, a small-budget film about a group of kids who defend their town from an alien invasion. Cornish is said to be attached to Universal’s Section 6 at the moment — a Black-List script about the formation of »
