The Do-Over Review

20 hours ago

Sometimes I wish I could like an Adam Sandler movie, that I could have been one of the people to make The Ridiculous 6 one of the most viewed movies on Netflix because I genuinely was looking forward to it. But every movie post Mr. Deeds (with the exception of The Longest Yard, but that was probably because of every cast member bar Sandler) has seen me become numb to the efforts of the once funny man, even more so now that Happy Madison Productions just seems to be Sandler’s own personal travel agency, fuelled by product placement and tasteless jokes. I do stupidly find myself hoping Sandler can turn it around with each movie, harking back to the old days, but that spark of hope has been finally squashed with The Do-Over, the second of four Netflix exclusive movies for the actor, being everything people have grown to »

Sam Mendes Is Done With The James Bond Franchise

22 hours ago

Despite adding $2 Billion to the coffers of the James Bond franchise, and not to mention revitilising the character, with Skyfall and Spectre, it seems director Sam Mendes is following in the foot steps (allegedly) of Daniel Craig and walking away from the series. Yes, he said the same after Skyfall, but he has been pretty adamant in the past that he was done after Spectre, and now, speaking at the Hay Festival in Wales, as reported by The Guardian, it’s all but confirmed: “It was an incredible adventure, I loved every second of it, but I think it’s time for somebody else.”  No word on what is next for the Oscar winning director, bit it’s understandable that he wants to do something more than chronicle the next adventure of the cinema’s most suave super spy: “I’m a storyteller. And at the end of the day, »

Jeff Bridges Joins Cast Of Kingsman: The Golden Circle

23 hours ago

It’s been all go on the casting front for Kingsman: The Golden Circle in the last few weeks, with Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, and, would you believe it, Elton John joining Matthew Vaughn’s highly anticipated spy sequel alongside the returning Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, and Colin Firth. Now, another casting announcement has come our way, and congratulations Mr. Vaughn, you have won at casting with the news that Jeff Bridges is coming onboard, no doubt playing a member of The Kingsman’s American counterpart, The Statesman. The Golden Circle casting so far has been accompanied by specialised posters, and Bridges’ comes with the most perfect Jeff Bridges infused poster ever, complete with glass of scotch and the word ‘vexing’. No word on who will be playing at this stage, but with a character named Jack described as a ‘swaggering, sharp shooting cowboy’ you would think that »

Go Behind The Scenes Of The Quicksilver Scene In X-Men: Apocalypse

27 May 2016 1:44 PM, PDT

If you’ve sat down to watch X-Men: Apocalypse in the last week, I think you’ll agree that Evan Peter’s Quicksilver once again steals the show. Now, what if I was to tell you that most of the scene was done practically. You’d probaly call me a liar, but I’m in fact telling the truth, as this latest featurette takes us behind the scenes to show us the Phantom camera, which travelled 90 mph to commit the fast moving mutant’s powers to the big screen. »

Money Monster Review

27 May 2016 1:00 PM, PDT

George Clooney and Julia Roberts, now there's a dream cast. Throw in Jodie Foster as director and a story that hit's home. What could go wrong? A Financial TV host Lee Gates (Clooney) and his producer Patty (Roberts) are put in an extreme situation when an irate investor (Jack O' Connell) takes over their studio, threatening to blow Gates into a million pieces, after losing all his money after hedging all his bets on Gate's financial advice. Think Phone Booth, in a TV studio, with more clichés. And that's the issue with Money Monster. While ultimately, it shows the little guy always gets fucked over, it does it in a way that never really lifts above average. No pun intended, but this is a by the numbers thriller. The story, while adequate yet clichéd, never really raises the tension levels that the trailer promised. There are very few moments where »

Could Tom Hiddleston Be The New James Bond After All?

27 May 2016 11:44 AM, PDT

By now, we’ve all heard that Daniel Craig allegedly turned down $100 million to play James Bond again, adding fuel to the fire that he’s done with the character (though I think saying he’d rather slit his wrists than do another one was a good enough indication). If it is indeed true, Eon Productions and producers Barbara Broccoli and Micheal G. Wilson will no doubt waste no time finding a replacement, and the rumour mill has turned once again, with Birth.Movies.Death reporting that Tom Hiddleston, the fan’s favourite to slip into the tuxedo, is in ‘advanced talks’ to take on the role of cinema’s most famous super spy. Hiddleston himself hasn’t been shy about letting people know how much he wants the role, so if talks are indeed taking place, don’t be surprised if they’re done with quite quickly. And if »

Alice Through The Looking Glass Review

27 May 2016 11:06 AM, PDT

Despite receiving mixed reviews, 2010’s Alice in Wonderland remake went onto to be a huge box office draw, banking over a billion dollars worldwide. You would have thought a sequel wouldn’t have taken six years to come our way, but here we are, with The Muppets director James Bobin taking the reins from Tim Burton, telling an original story involving Lewis Carroll’s beloved characters, one which inexplicably involves time travel, giving us the chance to glimpse the origins of  the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, and the rest of the crazy lot. After years of following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to Underland to find the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) is not himself, adamant his family he thought were dead are still very much alive and growing ever more darker whenever anyone doesn’t believe. Apparently the only way »

The First Independence Day: Resurgence Clip Is Here!

27 May 2016 9:32 AM, PDT

Roland Emmerich has got his land mark destroying hat on again for Independence day: Resurgence, and with the movie just under a month from hitting our screens, Fox have released the first clip from the long awaited sequel online. While it doesn’t reveal much, and pretty much just expends on a scene that’s in every trailer, it does flirt with  the idea of revealing the reason behind the return of Brent Spiner’s Dr, Okun, who we all just assumed shuffled off the moral coil in the first movie. Check it our below. Released: June 24th Synopsis: We always knew they were coming back. After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for »

Watch The Tense First Trailer From Sci-Fi Thriller Morgan

25 May 2016 9:26 AM, PDT

It’s a safe bet no one knew thing one about Morgan (unfortunately not the Morgan Freeman biopic we all don’t know we want) just a few hours, but now the first trailer is here, and damn it if this has’t rocketed to the top of my must see list. The feature debut of Luke Scott (son of Ridley), it tells the tale of a corporate trouble shooter (Kate Mara) who is sent to a remote, top secret lab to investigate a terrifying accident. While there she comes face to face with a dangerous, rapidly evolving artificial intelligence in human form. While it may thread familiar sci-fi tropes, this first trailer, with it’s unsettling music cues and genuine feeling of menace, suggests Scott will be able to wring something a whole lot more more out of the well worn ‘science gone wrong’ story. On top of that, »

Chewbacca definitely on set in Kerry Update

25 May 2016 2:30 AM, PDT

Update 25th May - It is indeed Joonas Suotamo. Twitter user Fiona Cooke got her picture with him (on the right) and another equally tall actor (not sure who he is) Everyone loves a talk story... Mags met these 2 Star Wars extras in our pub in Dingle, they Are Chewbacca!!#Ras2016 pic.twitter.com/Tv3yGqnzzb — Fiona Cooke (@fi_cooke) May 24, 2016 Update - We've got some added video of Chewie's visit below. And no, we don't know what the kids are saying either ;) Some young Star Wars fans got the surprise of their lives when Chewbacca walked into their class room. Chewie came from the Ceann Sibeal set proving that without doubt, the big walking carpet is indeed in town. Looking at the gif below however, it's highly unlikely that it is indeed Peter Mayhew, instead, I reckon it's Joonas Suotamo who was Chewie's double in Episode VII. Mayhew has »

Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates Delivers A Nsfw Bedtime Story

25 May 2016 12:59 AM, PDT

Yesterday was Brothers Day, and to celebrate Fox wheeled out Adam Devine and Zac Efron from upcoming ruanch filled comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates to read from “Where Do Brother Come From”, a profanity laden night time tale from the pen of their characters in the movie, Mike and Dave Stangle. Check it out below, and if you find yourself moved by the duo’s reading, you can download the book for free here. Released: July 8th (U.S.)/ August 10th (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Hard-partying brothers Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Zac Efron) place an online ad to find the perfect dates (Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza) for their sister’s Hawaiian wedding.

We Found The New Finding Dory Trailer

25 May 2016 12:19 AM, PDT

Finding Nemo is probably one of the most beloved Pixar movies this side of Toy Story, so there is a lot riding on its sequel, Finding Dory. Thankfully, this latest trailer promises the studio will be firing on all cylinders, delivering something that is not just a rehash of what came before (in fairness, Pixar can never be accused of that) that still has the same level of emotion and humour. We also get to meet the new characters, including Idris Elba’s saline Fluke, who hands down gets the best joke of the whole promo. Mark my words, ‘Off’ will become the new ‘mine’ in terms of quotability. Released: 17th June (U.S.)/29th July (Irl/U.K.)Synopsis: Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? »

Chewbacca Mum met J.J. Abrams

24 May 2016 4:13 AM, PDT

By now, if you haven't seen Chewbacca Mum (Candace Payne) then it's time to crawl out from under that rock you call home. The Star Wars fan went viral a few days ago trying on a Chewbacca Mask she bought from Kohls. Since then, the video has amassed tens of millions of views and she's now on the talk show circuit Stateside, making a particularly brilliant appearance on James Corden where J.J. Abrams dropped by. Check out the video below »

Tap Your Feet Along To The New Sing Trailer

24 May 2016 12:44 AM, PDT

Proving they don’t need the gibberish spouting minions to be entertaining, Universal and Illumination Entertainment have unveiled the new trailer for Sing, which sees a group of anthropomorphised animals come together to battle it out in a singing competition. While it may not reach the heights of the similar Zootopia, a fantastic voice cast, including Matthew McConaughey, John C. Rielly, Seth McFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, Nick Offerman, Reese Witherspoon and Taron Egerton (proving he has an amazing singing voice), coupled with some toe tapping musical interludes will hopefully still lead to a fun time at the cinema. Released: 21st December (U.S.)/27th January 2017 (Irl/U.K.) »

John Carpenter Returns To Halloween Franchise

24 May 2016 12:29 AM, PDT

Save for a producer credit on the second and third one, John Carpenter hasn’t really had much to do with the Halloween franchise since bringing us the iconic Michael Myers first night of stalking and murder way back in 1978. Since then, it’s safe to say the series has floundered with eight increasingly lacklustre sequels, and then a Rob Zombie directed reboot in 2007, and a sequel two years later, completely missing the mark and dismissing everything that made the first movie so beloved. So, yeah, the years haven’t been kind to the franchise, but things are looking up, with Blumhouse Productions, the foremost studio for low budget horror with The Purge, Sinister, Insidious, and Paranormal Activity to their name, announcing at a special event held at their La offices that they are co-finanacing, alongside Miramax and Trancas International (who produced a number of the Halloween movies before), a new Halloween movie. »

23 May 2016 4:48 PM, PDT

We’re just a few days out from Warcraft debuting on this side of the pond, and to keep the hype at the required levels, Legendary have released a new video which sees Rob Kazinsky, who plays orc Orgrim Doomhammer, taking us through the Armoury, which houses the weapons used by the soldiers of the Alliance. No matter how the movie turns out, there’s no denying the level of detail here is amazing. Released  May 30th Ireland & UK / June 10th USA Synopsis: From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes Warcraft, an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon.   The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonise another.  As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. »
