3.7 Expenses

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. »

Spaceballs 2: Mel Brooks confirms he's in talks

6 hours ago

Kirsten Howard May 23, 2017

As the Star Wars franchise continues to roar back to life, a sequel to its original parody movie edges closer...

To many 80s geeks, Mel Brooks' Star Wars parody film Spaceballs is as iconic as the movies it makes fun of. Back then, it somehow made some kind of off-kilter, delicious sense for a young Bill Pullman to be zipping through the galaxy in a Winnebago space ship accompanied by a mog (half-man half-dog) called Barf, reluctantly rescuing a spoiled princess along with her Joan Rivers-voiced robot, and becoming skilled in the ways of the Schwartz.

Roger Moore dies, aged 89

7 hours ago

Den Of Geek May 23, 2017

Roger Moore has left us, his family announces.

Some very sad news. The actor Roger Moore has died, at the age of 89. The news was revealed by his family.

Moore’s career needs little introduction here, not least through his work as James Bond on the big screen, and The Saint on the small. But also, for over 25 years, he worked as an ambassador for Unicef, and regularly put his fame to good use. His work away from the screen was as important, if not more so, than his work on it.

We’re going to miss Roger Moore an awful lot, and have nothing but gratitude for the films and TV shows that he leaves behind. And his books, too. A real one-off, and a very special man. Rest in peace, Mr Moore.

Iron Fist season 2: Finn Jones wants the proper costume

Rob Leane May 23, 2017

Danny Rand actor Finn Jones wants to see Iron Fist in his proper threads in his second solo season...

As far as we know, Marvel's Iron Fist Netflix series hasn't yet been officially renewed for a second season. Its star, Finn Jones, will reprise the role of Danny Rand in this August's crossover event The Defenders. We expect that the future plans for Mr Fist will become a bit clearer after that.

In the meantime, though, Jones has appeared on the Hhwlod podcast to chat about his Marvel role. He briefly touched upon one big thing he'd like to see in a second season of Iron Fist: the proper comics-accurate costume.

"I think moving forward to season 2, we’ll see something like that [the classic costume]," Jones said. »

Ant-Man: animated shorts coming to Disney Xd

Ant-Man will shrink onto the small screen, for a series of shorts on Disney Xd...

Fittingly enough, Ant-Man is going to flit between the big and small screens. Scott Lang is shrinking to telly size for Disney Xd, to appear in a series of shorts entitled Marvel's Ant-Man

Josh Keaton (heard recently in Ben-10 and Voltron: Legendary Defender) will step into Paul Rudd's shoes to voice crook-turned-hero Scott.

The shorts will follow on from the events of Peyton Reed's 2015 Ant-Man movie, but, as with the Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series, we wouldn't expect them to be officially canonical with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The cinematic sequel Ant-Man And The Wasp, we expect, won't need to shape its script to account for these events. »

The Silver Chair director Joe Johnston on where the Narnia movie series is heading next...

We learned a little while back that Joe Johnston, of Captain America: The First Avenger and Jumanji vintage, is to direct the reboot of the Narnia film series. He’s set to start work on The Silver Chair in earnest this year.

He’s also, though, via his YouTube account, begun answering questions about the movie and his plans for it. And in there is some new information.

With thanks to Den Of Geek reader Andrew Martin for alerting us to this, Johnston confirms in the Q&A that The Silver Chair is a full reboot of the movie series. “Everything is new”, he says. “This is the beginning of a brand-new trilogy. We will make reference to characters and events in the other films as the book does, but think of »

Justice League: Zack Snyder stepping away from the movie

Simon Brew May 23, 2017

Following a family tragedy, Joss Whedon will be helping Zack Snyder finish the Justice League movie.

Zack Snyder is stepping away from making the Justice League movie, with Joss Whedon coming in to finish the film off for him. Whedon will shoot some addition scenes and continue the post-production work on the film. It's unclear as of yet if Snyder will return before its release, but he's taking a break from it at the minute.

Snyder is stepping away from the movie to be with his family. It’s been revealed that he lost his daughter, Autumn, back in March. She was just 20 years old, and took her own life.

If it’s all the same, that’s the movie news bit of this post. Our thoughts, hugs and very best wishes go to Zack Snyder, his wife Deborah, his children, his family and friends.

Uncharted movie casts Tom Holland as Nathan Drake

15 hours ago

Simon Brew May 23, 2017

Tom Holland is to play young Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie...

The planned movie of Uncharted has taken a bit of a sideways turn, with the news that Tom Holland has been cast as Nathan Drake.

Holland, next to be seen on the big screen of course as Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming, will take on the role of Drake, something that has already raised eyebrows given that Nathan is a much older man for most of the four videogames that have been released to date.

However, there are sequences in the third and fourth Uncharted games where you play a younger version of Nathan Drake, and the start of the third game in particular sees Drake meeting the character of Sullivan for the first time. It seems it’s sequences like these that will be the inspiration for Uncharted film, hence the casting of Tom Holland. »

Disney’s Pinocchio: Sam Mendes to direct live action version

15 hours ago

Simon Brew May 23, 2017

Spectre and Skyfall director Sam Mendes has emerged as the top choice to direct Disney's live action Pinocchio movie.

Right now, Disney’s live action fairytale slate is in rude health. Beauty & The Beast’s takings, for instance, have hit $1.2bn and counting (it's now one of the biggest movies of all time at the box office). Mary Poppins Returns is currently filming, meanwhile, and Tim Burton is set to start shooting Dumbo imminently. And then Guy Ritchie will be directing Aladdin for the studio, which also starts production soon.

Supergirl season 2 episode 22 review: Nevertheless, She Persisted

Here's our spoiler-filled review of the heart-wrenching Supergirl season 2 finale...

This review contains spoilers.

2.22 Nevertheless, She Persisted

If Supergirl season two's penultimate episode was a rallying call to resistance, then the season finale was the cost of that resistance. Because, sometimes, doing what's right can break your heart, but it's the choice you can live with.

When Supergirl is asked to choose between saving her world and keeping a person she loves in her life, she chooses to save Earth. And did anyone ever have any doubt that this is the choice our heroine would make? Some shows would have milked this dilemma for contrived angst, but this show knows its protagonist. She will not fail another homeworld. 

No, Supergirl makes the smarter decision. »

Gotham season 3 episode 19 Review: All Will Be Judged

Ed and Oswald's pairing continues to be the absolute best part of Gotham season three...

3.19 All Will Be Judged

Barnes is back in full force (this time, complete with Executioner axe-hand!) in the latest episode of Gotham. But what starts as a ploy by the Court of Owl's Kathryne, ends up backfiring big time. Barnes chops off her head, more loyal to his twisted idea of justice than to any one person.

But, as we know from Marvel (and, you know, Greek mythology), if you cut off one head, more will grow back in its place. This isn't the last we've seen of the Court of Owls, especially given that Kathryne wasn't even their main head. (Duh, Jim.) Here's »

Universal confirms its Dark Universe plans

Simon Brew May 23, 2017

A cinematic universe full of monster is confirmed by Universal – and Bride Of Frankenstein is next…

When The Mummy – headlined by Tom Cruise – lands in cinemas in a couple of weeks, it’s going to kickstart in earnest Universal’s planned classic monsters cinematic universe. Only now it has a new name. By the power of press release, we learn it’s going to be called the Dark Universe.

The Dark Universe will be overseen by The Mummy director Alex Kurtzman, Fast & Furious producer and writer Chris Morgan, writer and director Christopher McQuarrie (currently shooting Mission: Impossible 6) and writer/producer David Koepp (Jurassic Park). The Dark Universe will also have a posh logo, accompanied by a Danny Elfman piece of music.

Universal has also confirmed that Bride Of Frankenstein is heading into production shortly, with Beauty & The Beast and Gods & Monsters director Bill Condon behind the camera. »

Baywatch review

22 May 2017 9:54 AM, PDT

Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron headline Baywatch, a movie whose marketing is much better than the film itself.

The trend of old 80s properties being remake into R-rated comedies aimed at audiences who never saw the original is approaching a middle, and the latest to jump on the coattails of its more successful predecessors is Baywatch, from Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon.

The film follows the Baywatch lifeguard team as they monitor the most dramatic beach in the world, but when new recruit Matt Brody (Zac Efron) joins the squad after leaving his Olympic swimming career in disgrace, head lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) must teach him the value of teamwork. Meanwhile, the beach’s safety is threatened when a local drug smuggling ring is discovered.

Yet the problem here is that Baywatch just isn’t ludicrous enough. It shoots for the outlandish comedy and heartfelt centre of 21 Jump Street »

Twin Peaks season 3 episodes 1 & 2 review

Joe Matar May 22, 2017

The Twin Peaks revival is "pure heroin David Lynch" and all the good and bad that comes with it, say our Us chums...

This review contains spoilers.

I knew it was going to be tough to review the new series of Twin Peaks as if it were any other show. There was a period, in the original series, where it fell into clear rhythms—developing and twisting its various storylines about affairs, criminal activity, and supernatural gubbins—but this was also when the show was at its absolute worst. Its best episodes featured some of that stuff combined with unknowable David Lynch horror and oddness.

Fire Walk With Me immersed itself completely in the Lynchian side of Twin Peaks. I enjoy that film a great deal, »

1.4 Git Gone

Laura Moon has filled the first season of American Gods without actually being on screen all that much. She was all Shadow wanted to have back when he got out of jail, and her phone calls clearly kept him going while in jail. The loss of his wife and best friend in the same moment of betrayal took away his post-jail life and put him directly into the service of Mr. Wednesday. Shadow's been consumed with Laura, and with his grief over her, this entire time, but we haven't really heard or seen anything from her, aside from the occasional delusion. »

Event Horizon, and the lost director’s cut

21 May 2017 10:07 PM, PDT

Simon Brew May 22, 2017

The original director's cut of Event Horizon ran to 35 minutes longer than the final version. But, it seems, the footage is lost...

20 years on, director Paul W S Anderson has arguably yet to make a film to top his underrated science fiction picture, Event Horizon. The movie, which starred Sam Neill, remains a taut and tense piece for the first hour or so – one with an excellent sound mix (I remember seeing it in a cinema with excellent surround sound, and finding the audio alone incredibly creepy) – before its ending goes really quite conventional as it heads into its final strait.

However, the rush to complete the movie in time for its release date gave Anderson just four weeks to put a cut together. »

Mamma Mia 2 on the way, to be released next year

21 May 2017 9:58 PM, PDT

Simon Brew May 22, 2017

Mamma Mia! 2 is happening. It looks like Pierce Brosnan will be singing again, too...

Just in time for the tenth anniversary of the Mamma Mia! movie, Universal Pictures is getting a sequel together. And it’s all going to happen rather quickly.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again! is going to dig further back into the Abba songbook, and reprise a few songs from the original movie. This time, though, there’s no hit stage musical to base it all on, and thus Ol Parker – who penned The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – has been hired to put a new screenplay together.

The core cast from Mamma Mia! – Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Colin Firth, Julie Walters, Christine Baranski, Dominic Cooper and Stellan Skarsgard – are all expected back. It’s unclear as of yet whether Phyllida Lloyd will return to direct, though.

Simon Brew May 22, 2017

Spider-Man spin-off Venom is to be headlined by Tom Hardy, it's been confirmed...

Sony is wasting little time now with its first Spider-Man spin-off movie, Venom. And just before the weekend, it revealed some key personnel who are involved in the picture.

The one that immediately got people’s eyebrows hoisted north was Tom Hardy, returning to the land of comic book movies following The Dark Knight Rises. He was reported to be in final negotiations to take on the lead role on Venom in the movie, but his casting has subsequently been confirmed by a Tweet from Sony. Furthermore, we’ve also learned that Zombieland and Gangster Squad helmer Ruben Fleischer is set to direct.

The screenplay to new movie is being penned by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, and further Spider-Man spin-off films, including a Silver Sable/Black Cat movie, are also in the works. »

Johnny English 3 announced, Rowan Atkinson returning

21 May 2017 9:42 PM, PDT

Simon Brew May 22, 2017

Rowan Atkinson will return for a third Johnny English movie, that's expected to be in cinemas in 2018.

Rowan Atkinson is heading back to the big screen, and he’s set to reprise the role of Johnny English in a third movie adventure.

Currently going by the title of Johnny English 3 (although expect that to change), Atkinson’s character is a spoof of James Bond, originating from credit card commercials. But 2003’s Johnny English and 2011’s Johnny English Reborn both did solid box office, and a third movie is now due to start shooting before the year is out.

Pre-production has already begun on the movie, although the full cast has yet to be locked down. Johnny English 3 is expected in cinemas in October 2018.

As we get further details on the movie, we’ll pass them your way…

Chortle.
