Zachary Quinto talks Star Trek Beyond, says Spock will be paired up with Bones

1 hour ago

With production in full swing on Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond, MTV caught up with star Zachary Quinto to ask his thoughts on new director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), who has taken over from J.J. Abrams to helm the third instalment in the relaunched feature film series.

“Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J.,” states Quinto. “But Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that’s a little bit more reserved and a little bit quieter, but also very powerful and really sure-handed. He knows exactly what he wants this movie to look like and that’s really exciting.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens box office estimates suggest a $615 million global opening weekend

3 hours ago

We all know Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to be big – the only question is, ‘how big’?

Well, according to predictions from Deadline, the first chapter of Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy could pull in a $615 million worldwide opening weekend, which would shatter the previous record set earlier this year by Jurassic World on $524.4 million.

Analysts are suggesting a $300 million domestic opening (again, another Jurassic World record) plus a further $315 million internationally, which would almost certainly propel the J.J. Abrams-directed film to the fastest $1 billion of all time, held by – yep, you guessed it – Jurassic World, which achieved the feat in just 13 days.

The Force Awakens is set to dominate multiplexes in December and early January, playing on around 50% of screens, as well as having its run of IMAX theaters exclusively for a month. »

Two new posters for Eli Roth’s Knock Knock released

3 hours ago

Lorenza Izzo’s Genesis and Ana de Armas’s Bel are featured on two new character posters (via IMDb) for Eli Roth’s upcoming horror film Knock Knock. See them below…

Earlier this year, the film made its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received relatively mixed reviews from critics; however, the film’s star, Keanu Reeves, earned slightly more positive reception for his performance as a family man and architect who makes a bad decision.

When a devoted husband and father is left home alone for the weekend, two stranded young women unexpectedly knock on his door for help. What starts out as a kind gesture results in a dangerous seduction and a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Knock Knock is set for release on October 9th in the Us and features a cast that also includes Aaron Burns, Colleen Camp and Ignacia Allamand.

“I’m producing a super violent Castlevania mini-series with my homies Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde,” states Shankar. “It’s going to be dark, satirical, and after a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head.”

Speaking to Collider, Shankar revealed that the story would be based upon Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, and that there will be a high level of violence and gore: “The goal is to bring hard hitting anime to America and be America’s first animated series for adults.”

Comic Book Review – 2000Ad Prog 1945

5 hours ago

Oli Davis reviews 2000Ad Prog 1945…

Borag Thungg, Earthlets.

The creative team behind the deeply endearing Survival Geeks – Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby – enter part 2 of their latest strip, The Alienist. Part 1 was all set-up, introducing a cast of characters – none of which, oddly, were the protagonists. But there was a gruesome death. So there’s that.

Hopefully now entering the story proper, with the two not-as-they-appear leads Sebastian Wetherall and Miss Vespertine (the two constantly hint at a darker ‘truth’ in their narration, and Sebastian is at one point called ‘Reggie’), Part 2 is sadly comprised entirely of people talking in a room. Which can sometimes be great, but this ain’t Samuel Beckett. 5/10.

War-based science fiction – that’s the genre in which Robert Murphy’s 3riller, Apocalypse Anonymous, roots itself. Set in modern day Syria, a team from an unidentified Western country are sent to investigate a large monster that’s killing entire regiments. »

It’s video package city on this extended edition of Nxt. A show that only had four matches and So Many Video Packages. It’s this week’s Nxt Report…

Show opens with a video package for Nxt Takeover: Brooklyn including Triple H’s wacky intro. This was a fantastic show and a great video. If you’ve not seen the show yet, do yourself a favour. Seriously.

1. Enzo & Cass and The Hype Bros vs. Dash & Dawson and Jason Jordan & Chad Gable

Well, Enzo & Cass are the most over people in Nxt as far as this crowd goes. Seriously. They got a bigger reaction than anyone else – including Bayley and Sasha Banks. This should be a lot of fun, even with The Hype Bros. Ryder and Mojo start things off to a chorus of “we want Enzo” chants. This breaks down into an 8-man brawl pretty quickly. Cass throws a »

Barely Lethal, 2015

Directed by Kyle Newman.

Starring Hailee Steinfeld, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Thoman Mann, Dove Cameron, Rachael Harris, Jason Ian Drucker and Samuel L. Jackson.

Synopsis:

A teenage special ops agent coveting a “normal” adolescence fakes her own death and enrolls in a suburban high school. She quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of high school is more challenging than international espionage.

Actress Hailee Steinfeld is seemingly everywhere now that her Hollywood stock is on the vertical up-and-up. After captivating audiences aged just 14 in The Coen Brothers’ excellent True Grit, the Californian actress has moved swiftly through film after film with fine performances in Begin Again, The Homesman and this summer’s Pitch Perfect 2 whose massive box-office success will no doubt see her return for a third aca-go-round. Still only 18, the world is her oyster but she takes a break from the musical word to get down-and-dirty in action-thriller-comedy Barely Lethal which, »
