What Will Neill Blomkamp Bring To The Alien Franchise?!

1 hour ago

One of the bigger pieces of movies news last week was the reveal that Neill Blomkamp is to helm the next movie in the Alien franchise. This came off the back of the director releasing concept art for what his take on Ripley & Co. would look like, and obviously stirring up enough fanboy fervor to get a studio to sign on the dotted line with him. Now, I'm unashamedly one of his biggest advocates, and have been since the days of his YouTube Halo shorts (see below) that showed an eye for sci-fi action and getting the most out of a limited budget. I was lucky enough to be one of the first in the world to see District 9 and and I've been championing Blomkamp ever since, so as a film fan I should be ecstatic at the thoughts of him taking control of the Alien universe. However, there »

Jennifer Lawrence & Steven Spielberg Team Up For War Drama

4 hours ago

It's been reported that Jennifer Lawrence and Steven Spielberg are to work together on a biopic of Lynsey Addario, a photographer who's documented conflicts all around the globe. The movie, It's What I Do, will be based on Addario's memoir, It's What I Do; A Photographers Life Of Love & War.  Spielberg wasn't the only interested party, but he managed to outbid Darren Aronofsky, Margot Robbie and George Clooney who had the backing of The Weinsteins for the project. Given the subject matter it's easy to see why so many were interested in developing the book for the big screen, and with Spielberg and Lawrence now apparently locked in, it's time to start considering renaming the movie All Of The Oscars, as it's surely jumped the queue for a future awards season favourite. »

Has The Next Spider-Man Movie Found A Director?

14 hours ago

According to all reports, Spider-Man will be making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in next years Captain America: Civil War, but according to a new rumour, Sony Pictures, who still own the rights to the web-slinger and will be sharing him with Marvel Studios, are already looking towards Ol' Web Head's next solo adventure in 2017. According to Latino Review (who can be hit and miss when it comes to their 'scoops'), Cabin in the Wood's Drew Goddard has signed to write and direct Spider-Man's first solo effort following Sony and Marvel Studio's monumental partnership. Goddard was already attached to Spider-Man spin-off The Sinister Six, which has apparently been scrapped, and has a history with the McU's creative consultant, Joss Whedon, having worked as a writer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, before collaborating with Whedon on Cabin in the Woods. While Goddard would be a great choice to helm a solo Spidey movie, »

Red Band Get Hard Trailer Brings The Laughs!

16 hours ago

Trailers like this are a funny thing. On the one hand, they're bound to spoil some of the better jokes from the movie, but on the other hand, if you don't see a red band trailer for a film that is going to have a lot of swearing and sex jokes, then how do you realistically gauge whether or not you'll like it?! The red band trailer for Get Hard was released earlier, and thankfully does a lot more for me than the sanitised one. There seem to be more hits than misses with the jokes and the Ferrell / Hart chemistry is much more apparent now. All in all, looking forward to this one now, and our first proper look at the movie hints at another smash hit from Ferrell. »

Agent 47 Takes On An Army In New Hitman: Agent 47 Poster

21 hours ago

The first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 hit a couple of weeks back, and now we have a new poster, highlighting what promises to be one of the biggest scenes from the upcoming reboot. Other video game adaptions have trained us to approach each one with caution, but the scope, and pure summer blockbuster feel of Hitman: Agent 47 has, at the very least, me looking to this with reserved optimism. Released: 28th AugustSynopsis: Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck.  He is the culmination of decades of research ­ and forty-six earlier Agent clones -- endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent »
