A Tetris Movie Is Coming

1 hour ago

We've had a movie based on Battleship. We've had a movie based on Lego. It was only a matter of time before another stable of people's childhood, the video game Tetris, would be translated to the big screen, courtesy of Threshold Entertainment. Now walking, talking Lego figures was a no-brainer, and a case could be made that the aliens vs the Navy plot of Battleship made some sort of sense, but I can't see much of movie being made of squares, lines and t-blocks falling from the sky. Threshold CEO, and producer on 1995's Mortal Kombat, Larry Kasanoff has promised a live action 'very big, epic sci-fi movie', but again, I don't see how the Tetris brand can be spun off into a movie. Time will tell how Tetris will look on the big screen, but I'm saying this now: the games epic music better be kept intact! »

2 hours ago

After Matthew McConaughey goes to space for Christopher Nolan, Gus van Sant will be guiding him through Aokigahara, the mysterious, dense forest at the base of Japan's Mount Fuji. Also known as the Suicide Forest, it is infamous for being the scene for numerous suicides over the years (57 in 2010), and is the setting for Sea of Trees, which sees McConaughey's Arthur Brennan travel to the area, intent on taking his own life. When he meets Takumi Nakamura (Ken Watanabe), a Japanese man who has lost his way, the pair embark on a journey of reflection and survival. Principal photography has wrapped on the production, which filmed in both Japan and the U.S., and the haunting first image from the movie has been released, featuring both Watanabe and McConaughey.

Trailer And Poster For Tak3n

8 hours ago

Liam Neeson trots out the Bryan Mills character for the third time, and while the first trailer for Tak3n (I roll my eyes every time I type that) does paint itself as more than the carbon copy of the first film Taken 2 was, I find miss myself completely over this franchise, and I have a feeling Tak3n will have to go a long way to wash the bad taste of Taken 2 out of audience's mouths. Released: 8th January (Irl/U.K.)/ 9th January (U.S.) »

8 hours ago

A new clip from the critically lauded (as you can see from the below poster) horror movie The Babadook has come online, making something as simple as a phone call immensely creepy.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend To Premiere On Netflix And In IMAX Simultaneously

12 hours ago

A serious game-changer for the traditional film distribution model, Netflix have announced that Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, the sequel to Ang Lee's martial arts epic, will premiere exclusively on the online streaming service, as well as select IMAX screens across the globe simultaneously, on August 28th 2015. This is a turn of events that is not entirely unexpected, considering Netflix turned how we watch original programming on its head with the likes of House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and Arrested Development season 4. It will be interesting to see how this particular distribution deal develops going forward, as this could seriously impact on how films are released in the future. In press release from Netflix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend is the first of several major films backed by Netflix to take advantage of this particular distribution model.

Trailer And Poster For Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice

18 hours ago

While his recent offering have been on the darker side, Paul Thomas Anderson's highly anticipated Inherent Vice sees him going goofier, adapting Thomas Pynchon's novel following a private eye caught up in a kidnapping plot involving his former lover's billionaire husband. There are hilarious performance across the board here, especially Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin, and the overall tone of the trailer points to this being one movie well worth waiting for. Released: 12th December (U.S.)/ 30th January (Irl/U.K.) »

29 September 2014 2:24 PM, PDT

With cameras rolling on the aptly titled Magic Mike Xxl, the full cast list has be revealed for the sequel, confirming that Matthew McConaughey will not be rejoining Channing Tatum for the sequel. However, the rest of the Kings of Tampa, including Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, and Adam Rodriguez, will be returning. The original cast will be joined by newcomers Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Amber Heard, Andie McDowell, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Michael Strahan. That's a pretty intriguing cast, especially proven comedians Banks and Glover. On top of all that, the full synopsis has been released, expanding on the rumours doing the rounds that pitched the sequel as a road movie. It promises, for me at least, a much different movie than the original, though still delivering what the target audience are looking for. Check it out below: Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the »

29 September 2014 8:07 AM, PDT

Narrated by George Takei, the Irish Film Board funded animated short The Missing Scarf has come online, and it is an absolute joy to behold. Coming from director Eoin Duffy, it was mainly created using the open source Blender 3D, in addition to Adobe Flash, and spins the darkly comic tale of a squirrel looking for his missing scarf, and the various animals, who are dealing with their own problems, he encounters. The Missing Scarf has gone on to win several awards both home and abroad, as well as being shortlisted for 2014 Academy Awards.  I highly recommend you take six minutes out of your day, and watch this wonderful piece of animation.  »

Dwayne Johnson To Star In Robert Ludlum Adaption The Janson Directive

29 September 2014 12:14 AM, PDT

While he may be best known for the creating of Jason Bourne, novelist Robert Ludlum had masterminded the creation of other characters, including former government agent and security Paul Janson. An adaption of the first novel in the Janson series, the Janson Directive (released posthumously, a year after the authors death) has been in the works for some time now, with Dwayne Johnson in negotiations to take the leading role. Now, through Twitter, the actor has confirmed that he has been cast in the role, with Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, I, Robot) handling the script, which sees Janson on the run from the  government after a rescue mission goes horribly wrong. This should be a more serious, Bourne-like action role for Johnson, which Universal obviously want to spin off into a franchise, which would be good for him going forward as he has proven he can excel when given »
