Doctor Who: The Pyramid At The End Of The World spoiler-free review

7 hours ago

Simon Brew May 25, 2017

Picking up from last week's Extremis, Doctor Who series 10 moves on to The Pyramid At The End Of The World. Here are our thoughts...

10.7 The Pyramid At The End Of The World

Interesting. Not without a few problems, but interesting, and plenty in this one to make you want the gap between this and the next episode to be less than seven days.

Picking up in the aftermath of last week’s Extremis, The Pyramid At The End Of The World is an episode of Doctor Who that continues to ramp things up, as the threat to the world escalates. It’s the kind of episode, in fact, that you could imagine fitting a few episodes later in a run, with a growing threat and some other stuff I'm not going to talk about here.

To give you a flavour of what you get, though, it comes »

John Wick 3 moving quickly, possibly filming this year

7 hours ago

Simon Brew May 25, 2017

Keanu Reeves will return as John Wick - and it may be a little sooner than first thought...

Off the back of the success of John Wick: Chapter 2, plans are moving quickly to get the third film in the series before the cameras. Chad Stahelski, who directed the second movie (after co-directing the first), has been telling Collider that script work is well underway.

“We’re in the middle of it writing it right now”, he said. “It’s more of a how fast can we get our shit together. But I would assume that if not by the end of this year, the beginning of next year”. By that, we’re taking it to mean that the movie could even be filming before 2017 is out, and that’d likely suggest an early 2019 release date for »

Top Gun 2 circling Oblivion director

7 hours ago

Simon Brew May 25, 2017

Director Joseph Kosinski may be reuniting with Tom Cruise for Top Gun 2...

Things seem to be suddenly moving quite quickly where Top Gun 2 is concerned. Earlier this week, Tom Cruise confirmed in an interview that the project was an active one, and that he suspected it’d be filming within the next 12 months. There’s been no official announcement from Paramount Pictures about this, but the studio – for whom Tom Cruise is currently shooting Mission: Impossible 6 – will be keen.

Variety is now reporting that things may be more advanced than first thought too, because Tom Cruise is said to have been meeting with potential directors for the project. The plan is to make sure that Top Gun 2 is ready to rock and roll as soon as Cruise is done with Mission: Impossible 6. »

Star Wars: Joseph Fiennes on auditioning for Obi-Wan

7 hours ago

Simon Brew May 25, 2017

How a five-year old cost Joseph Fiennes his chance at playing Obi-Wan in the Star Wars prequel trilogy...

Off the back of his success in the Oscar-winning Shakespeare In Love, actor Joseph Fiennes was a man on many big movie casting director’s wishlists in the 1990s in particular. And in a new interview, he’s revealed that he came close to landing a key role in the Star Wars prequels. Obi-Wan Kenobi as it happens, the part that was played ultimately by Ewan McGregor in the prequel trilogy.

Chatting to The Wrap, Fiennes has been talking in loose terms about his audition and why he didn’t get the role.

“I auditioned for a great director”, he recalled. “It was whittled down after many auditions to myself and another fine actor who I was at that time at drama school with”.

Fiennes was indeed at drama school with Ewan McGregor. »

Maze Runner star says the third movie is back on track

9 hours ago

Don Kaye May 25, 2017

Kaya Scodelario confirms that things are pressing ahead in earnest on Maze Runner: The Death Cure.

It was March 2016 when actor Dylan O’Brien, star of the dystopian young adult series collectively known as The Maze Runner, was seriously injured on the set of the third film, The Death Cure. At first filming was set to resume that May, until the studio and producers were informed that O’Brien’s injuries were more serious than previously thought.

At that point production was shut down indefinitely and the original February 2017 release date was scrapped. But work on the picture finally resumed this past March - a full year after O’Brien was hurt - and co-star Kaya Scodelario told Den Of Geek Us a bit about how it was going.

"We're just filming the third one and it's a really great send-off for the characters", she said. "They're »

Arrow season 5 episode 23 review: Lian Yu

11 hours ago

Tyler McCarthy May 25, 2017

The battle of Lian Yu rages on in the Arrow Season 5 finale...

This review contains spoilers.

5.23 Lian Yu

After a year of twists, turns, false flags and some seriously angsty drama, the Arrow season 5 finale is its most climactic and costume-heavy episode to date. Not only did the finale pack enough hardcore action to satisfy any average fan’s bloodlust, but the ageing series found yet another compelling way to leave fans on the hook until Arrow season six kicks off in October.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the battle on Lian Yu or the ultimate Arrow cliffhanger, let’s acknowledge for one final time the shoehorned existence of the flashbacks. It will be strange to see what happens to the format of the series next year now that its gimmick of showing fans what »

The behind the scenes battles of Pirates Of The Caribbean

15 hours ago

Mark Harrison May 25, 2017

The Pirates Of The Caribbean movies have not been easy films to make....

As Michael Bolton once belted out: “This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow.” The Pirates Of The Caribbean film was a surprise sleeper hit in 2003, astounding the higher-ups at Disney who had long been sceptical of how a pirate movie, based on a ride at Disneyland, would appeal to audiences.

Off the back of this success, the sequels only got more ambitious and expensive in scale, with their use of practical effects and convoluted character dynamics serving to complicate the adventure format, with mixed results. It shouldn't shock you then, to hear that each of the movies released so far had some serious behind-the-scenes battles to make them shipshape.

The fifth and apparently final instalment, Salazar's Revenge (or Dead Men Tell No Tales), has had some very public battles before it has even been released, »

David Bowers interview: Wimpy Kid, James Bond, family movies

16 hours ago

Simon Brew May 25, 2017

The director of the new Wimpy Kid - and the last three - on the movie, and why he doesn't like deleted scenes...

Returning for the fourth Diary Of A Wimpy Kid film – and his third as director – is British-born director David Bowers. Having started with animation – directing Flushed Away and Astro Boy, amongst his extensive credits – Bowers has since been primarily working on bringing Jeff Kinney’s characters to the screen.

Ahead of the release in UK cinemas this Friday of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, he spared us some time for a chat about the movie.

We started by my asking if he’d been to see the film himself since it was finished…

I went on Saturday to watch it. My mother in law wanted to see it. The guy in front of us, who’d grudgingly taken his seven-year old daughter, »

Game Of Thrones season 7 trailer breakdown & analysis

Kayti Burt May 25, 2017

From that attack on Casterly Rock to Jorah's gnarly arm, our Us chums break down all the big moments from the Game of Thrones trailer...

"The great war is here."

See related  Game Of Thrones season 7: brand new trailer

It's all war all the time in the new trailer for Game Of Thrones season seven (which you can check out here). The full-length promo begins with Cersei laying out the enemies she has to face from every side. Something tells me that her fancy war map won't save her...

In general, Cersei's appearance in this trailer is defined by loneliness. The promo begins with the sound of her echoing steps... and how small does she look in the above screenshot? Jamie may techically be by her side, as we see in a later shot, but Cersei is very much alone following the suicide of poor Tommen in the season six finale. »

Sony adds new curator system to PlayStation Network

20 hours ago

Matthew Byrd May 25, 2017

The Creators allows you to view the recommendations of developers, executives, and other game industry members.

Sony has debuted a new curator system for PlayStation Network which allows gamers everywhere to view the recommendations of some of the industry's great creative minds. 

This new program, dubbed The Creators, is now available for PlayStation Network users in select regions. If you are not in one of the currently available regions, you can still view the content of this latest update via the PlayStation website. 

In many ways, The Creators echoes Steam's curator system. Both are built around the idea of finding new games based on the recommendations of others and both allow you to purchase said games directly from the recommendation pages. 

The big difference here is who Sony approached for recommendations. Whereas the Steam curator system primarily relies on the recommendations of online content creators, Sony's system »

DC Super Hero Girls: animated show in the works

24 May 2017 1:50 AM, PDT

Rob Leane May 24, 2017

Cartoon Network will host Warner Bros' DC Super Hero Girls animated series, which starts next year...

Warner Bros and DC Entertainment are set to bolster the female representation in their animated output, teaming with Cartoon Network for a show entitled DC Super Hero Girls. Despite the on-the-nose title - which it shares with a toy range, a series of online shorts and some straight-to-video movies - this sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

Rob Leane May 24, 2017

If you want to own Wynonna Earp season 1 on Blu-ray, you'll need to support this Indiegogo campaign...

Here's an interesting one: presumably because Syfy doesn't fancy shelling out for a disc release, Wynonna Earp production company Idw Entertainment has taken to Indiegogo to offer fans a chance to purchase season 1 of the show on Blu-ray.

There are a number of different pledge levels for said fans to choose from. For $25 (under £20), fans can order the most basic package: the Blu-ray itself, which comes with all 13 episodes, behind the scenes content and some cast interviews.

For $35 (under £27), you get the Blu-ray and a Wynonna Earp comic book. For $65 (just over £50), you get the Blu-ray, the comic and a hardcover picture book signed by Emily Andras. For $75 (£57 and a bit of change), you get the disc, the comic and a replica Wynonna Earp necklace. »

The Flash season 3 finale ending explained

What the hell happened at the end of The Flash season 3 finale? Major spoilers ahead...

Warning: contains spoilers.

See related  Game Of Thrones season 7: brand new trailer

Well, I have to hand it to the DC TV superhero universe. They sure do have some movement on their curve. Between the Supergirl season 2 finale and The Flash's Finish Line the CW has left us with two surprisingly ambiguous endings. But the ambiguity surrounding that Supergirl finale had more to do with other characters and the potential villain for next year. The Flash gave us something a little more immediately pressing... namely, the actual fate of our hero.

There are three massive questions to be answered here. I kind of have an idea of what's going on. Mostly.

Is Barry Allen dead?

What? No! Of course not. Don't you worry about a thing. 

For one thing, as we saw, »

Charlie’s Angels reboot due in 2019

23 May 2017 10:39 PM, PDT

Simon Brew May 24, 2017

Janelle Monae is apparently on the radar for the new big screen take on Charlie’s Angels…

Plans are still afoot at Sony Pictures for a big screen remake/reboot of Charlie’s Angels, and there have been one or two developments to tell you about.

It’s been known for some time that Elizabeth Banks was set to direct the movie, her second feature behind the camera following Pitch Perfect 2. But now we learn that the film is zeroing in on Janelle Monae to take one of the lead roles in the movie. Monae had a sizeable hit recently with the excellent Hidden Figures, and is reported to be at the top of the wishlist for the project, although there are no signs that formal discussions have begun as of yet.

Furthermore, the script for the movie is being rewritten by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, »

The Grinch: first pic from new CG reboot

23 May 2017 9:54 PM, PDT

Brendon Connelly May 24, 2017

Benedict Cumberbatch is voicing The Grinch. And here's what he'll look like...

Illumination - the folks behind the Despicable Me films, of course - have been showing off some of their key characters to licensors over the past week, the better to encourage the continued manufacture, distribution, sale, enjoyment and, eventually, landfill-clogging destruction of their merchandise. And in a new piece of artwork - that you can see at the top there, and in full down at the bottom - that's been placed as an advert in Global License, we get our first look at the studio's CG take on The Grinch, from next year's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas do-over.

Following Boris Karloff, sort-of-Tim Curry, Jim Carrey and Seth Green, the latest actor to play (well, voice in this instance) Dr. Seuss' immortal, Christmas-derailing hermit, will be Benedict Cumberbatch. Seems only natural. Shame that »

Justice League Dark movie loses another director

23 May 2017 9:17 PM, PDT

Mike Cecchini May 24, 2017

DC's magical Justice League Dark movie needs a new director, as Doug Liman departs the project.

Get ready for a revolving door of Justice League Dark directors. Just weeks after saying that the movie had "a take on it that I love," director Doug Liman has left the Justice League Dark movie. To complicate matters further, the project, which has been known as Dark Universe for some time, probably needs a new title, since Universal has just decided to name their shared cinematic monsterverse Dark Universe, too.

Variety broke the news of Liman's departure, citing his involvement with Chaos Walking (starring Daisy Ridley) as the reason. When Den Of Geek Us spoke with Liman a few weeks ago, it seems like he already knew that this was going to be an issue, mentioning that "it's going to be about scheduling for me."

Top Gun 2 to film in the next year

23 May 2017 9:17 PM, PDT

David Crow Simon Brew May 24, 2017

Tom Cruise confirms that Top Gun 2 is not only active, it's finally set to start filming...

Speaking from experience, we can say it’s not often that a movie star point blank answers questions about sequels and far-off productions. Which makes Tom Cruise coolly confirming Top Gun 2 is in the works and right around the corner to Australia’s popular Sunrise morning show all the more remarkable. But that's just what he's done.

Indeed, as you can see in the below Twitter snippet of the interview, during a promotional interview for next month’s The Mummy release, Tom Cruise politely and happily created a tidal wave of fan interest by confirming the rumours are correct, and he is actively pursuing a Top Gun sequel. Further, he also said he hopes to begin shooting it within the next 12 months.

“It’s true, yes,” Cruise aid with a smile. »

3.23 Finish Line

I think I can safely say that I am satisfied with The Flash season 3 finale, Finish Line. What I didn't expect was just how seriously they were going to take that Finish Line title, and for the second year in a row, they managed to throw fans a serious curve. More than one, as a matter of fact.

I've written so many variations of this over the last handful of reviews that I hesitate to go back into it one more time, but just in case you're new here: I have been completely on board with the second half of this season (and the first half wasn't too shabby, either).

Wonder Woman, and the merchandise problem

23 May 2017 1:40 PM, PDT

Rob Leane May 24, 2017

It’s only a week or so until Wonder Woman reaches UK cinemas. So where’s all the merchandise?

Regular visitors to this site might’ve noticed that we do rather a lot of articles about movie tie-in Lego sets. Recently, we’ve chronicled the products available on Amazon (because we have a partnership with said retailer) for such iconic cinema-faring superheroes as Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and the Guardians Of The Galaxy. There always seems to be loads of cool kits, designed to connect up with the respective hero’s latest movie outing.

Last week, I looked at putting together an article about the Wonder Woman Lego sets, only to find that, well... there aren’t any. With the movie set to arrive in cinemas very soon (June 1st in the UK), I was a bit surprised at the lack of brick-based tie-in materials on Amazon. An »

Even winning has consequences. Jimmy McGill might have roundly defeated his brother, but in such a tangled, ugly, complex battle his victory was never going to be wholesale, and at the time, considering what he stood to lose, the casualties didn’t seem that bad. A year away from the law, some community service; in theory neither are too bad. But in Vince Gilligan’s Albuquerque things have a way of worsening. 

Jimmy struggled for years to becoming a lawyer, and that struggle only deepened once he learned what the brother he did it to impress really thought of his choices. Now Jimmy finds himself doing humiliating tasks surrounded by people who don’t care who he is. »
