Legendary Eyeing Joe Cornish for King Kong Prequel, Skull Island

1 hour ago

Legendary made a real impact at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con when they revealed that Gareth Edwards would return to helm a monster-filled Godzilla sequel (more details on that are here), but the biggest surprise was the announcement that they were rebooting the King Kong franchise with Skull Island.

While a November 4th, 2016 release date was confirmed at the event, there was no word on who would write or direct the prequel/reboot. Well, it has been revealed this evening that the studio are offering the director’s chair to Joe Cornish, the man responsible for brilliant British movie Attack the Block.

It’s unclear whether or not he will accept the job, especially as he’s hoping to helm Section Six for Universal. That movie (which focuses on the formation of MI6) is surrounded in legal issues right now due to a dispute with the producers of the Bond franchise, »

Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll’s Roles in Marvel’s Ant-Man Finally Revealed

7 hours ago

They may have lost Edgar Wright, but Marvel Studios are moving full steam ahead with Ant-Man under the watchful eyes of new writer Adam McKay (Anchorman) and director Peyton Reed (Yes Man).

Following their panel on Saturday night at Comic-Con, Marvel officially announced which characters Lost star Evangeline Lilly and House of CardsCorey Stoll will be playing in the movie.

Stoll will play Darren Cross, but in a major change to his rather forgettable comic book counterpart, he will be a villainous version of Ant-Man in this movie. That name was once taken by original Ant-Man Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas here), but Marvel have decided to use the persona for the movie’s main villain.

In another surprise twist, Evangeline Lilly will play Hope Pym, the daughter of Hank and Janet Van Dyne. This is a major change to the comics as Jan is The Wasp in the present day Marvel Universe, »

Making an appearance out in Comic-Con this weekend, Alexander Aja’s upcoming fantasy/horror-thriller Horns is set to light up the box office this Halloween.

Daniel Radcliffe is front and centre, adding some impressive star firepower for the genre’s biggest weekend of the year. The first teaser trailer had previously leaked online earlier in the month, but was swiftly taken down in an effort to keep it under wraps until the film’s official debut out in San Diego. And now Radius has launched a full-length trailer, confirming all your suspicions about this being something to look forward to this October.

Radcliffe conquered the genre two years ago when The Woman in Black turned its $15m. budget into almost $130m. worldwide, and he looks set to bring audiences back to theatres once more.

Mood Indigo Review

16 hours ago

While those this side of the English Channel may not have heard of it as such, Boris Vian’s influential 1947 novel Froth on the Daydream is one that has become almost ingrained in French, teenage society, as a piece of literature that is something of a staple, must-read amongst a younger, impressionable crowd. Gaining a cult-following in the process, the much celebrated, innovative filmmaker Michel Gondry seemed the perfect fit to bring this fantastical tale to the big screen. However in this instance, the director’s inclination for contrived whimsicality devalues an otherwise enchanting love story.

Of course the story demands a surrealistic, wondrous approach, given the ethereal, dreamlike nature of the tale – but what can be achieved on paper does not always amount to a triumph on screen, as some things are best left to our wildest imaginations. To help bring this tale to the big screen (renamed Mood Indigo »
