Guardians Of The Galaxy Makes $500 Million Worldwide

1 hour ago

Stumbling out of the cinema after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy, it is hard to believe there was any doubt on whether Marvel Studio's bunch of a-holes would strike box office gold. But strike box office gold it did. Not only did it continue Marvel Studio's run of a  U.S. #1 spot on opening weekened, but we can report that it has crossed the $500 million mark worldwide since opening at the start of August, with the movie still to open in key markets like Germany, Italy, Japan and China. Not bad for a movie once considered Marvel Studio's biggest gamble to date. »

New poster for The Judge

1 hour ago

Featuring quite the central pairing of Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duval, it is a no brainer that The Judge's promo campaign would play that up big time. Which brings us to the latest poster, featuring the two leads in full on imposing mode. Check it out below. Released: 10th October (U.S.)/ 24th October (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Big city lawyer Hank Palmer returns to his childhood home where his father, the town's judge, is suspected of murder.

No Humour Allowed In The DC Comics Movies?

1 hour ago

Considering how dark and gritty Warner Bros. have been steering the DC Comics movies as of late, the latest rumour to come out of their growing DC Cinematic universe proves to be quite believable. According to Drew McWeeny of HitFix, there is a mandate doing the rounds at Warner Bros. concerning their DC characters: "No jokes". It seems after Green Lantern fell flat, a darker and edgier approach is what is needed moving forward. Well, there was quite a few problems with Green Lantern, editing, pacing, script, but the lighter tone wasn't one of them. But if a more realistic and darker tone is where this universe is heading, as evidenced by Man of Steel, we can't really argue. Warner Bros. have their plan set in concrete it would seem, but if this all proves to be true, is a superhero universe devoid of humour the way to go? Sure, »

Trailer for Trash

3 hours ago

Coming from director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Reader), I have a strong feeling Trash is going to feature heavily when the upcoming Oscar race goes into full swing. Adapted from Andy Mulligan's novel of the same name by Richard Curtis (Love Actually), the movie follows three boys (Rickson Tevez, Luis Eduardo, and Gabriel Weinstein) who survive in the slums of Rio picking through trash. When they find a wallet sought after by some very bad man, they are propelled on the adventure of their young lives, uncovering a dangerous conspiracy along the way. Also starring Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara, Trash does show the promise of a compelling, and the young actors at the heart of the story will no doubt tug at audiences heart strings. Released: 30th January 2015 (Irl/U.K.)/ ? (U.S.) »

The Interview Launches A Viral Site

9 hours ago

With the release date fast approaching, The Interview, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's follow-up to their directorial debut This Is the End, has launched a viral site for Skylark Tonight, the talk show James Franco's Dave Skylark hosts in the movie. There is quite a lot going on with the site, which definitely builds up the hype for the movie, especially the below video, a fake Skylark Tonight segment made for the recent Vma's. Skylark is definitely one of Franco's best characters to date. Released: 25th December (U.S.)/ 30th January 2015 (Irl/U.K.) »

Ron Howard And Tom Hanks Reunite For Another Dan Brown Adaption, Inferno

10 hours ago

It looks like Tom Hanks isn't hanging up Robert Langdon's bad hair any time soon, as he is re-teaming with Ron Howard, after The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons, to bring us the continuing adventures of the Harvard professor of symbology with Inferno. The fourth books in Dan Browns series of Langdon novels, Inferno mixes in cutting edge science with classic literature, as an amnesiac Langdon attempts to solve a deadly riddle tied to Dante's Inferno, the first part of the epic 14th century poem Divine comedy. Filming is set to begin in Italy in April of next year, ruling out the December 2015 release date that was already attached to the project. »

Trailer for The Pyramid

17 hours ago

It seems every second horror movie these days ends up been found footage, but at least The Pyramid is shaking things up somewhat by setting all the creepy goings on in, you guessed it, a pyramid. The below trailer has a lot of great moments in it, as a group of archeologists foolishly enter a newly discovered pyramid, and are soon picked off one by one. To me, it comes off as horror version of The Mummy. And yes, that is The Inbetweeners' James Buckley as a member of the ill fated exhibition. Released: 5th December »

Henry Cavill And Amy Adams Take The Ice Bucket Challenge

23 hours ago

All in aid of a more than worthy cause, the Als ice bucket challenge is still going strong, and the latest celebrities to take part are Amy Adams and Henry Cavill, all while taking a break from filming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And hats off to Cavill for not only doing it in full Superman costume, but also for getting doused with a tremendous amount of ice water. »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review

23 hours ago

In 2005, director Robert Rodriguez, with Frank Miller and Quentin Tarantino riding shotgun, brought Miller's neo-noir graphic novel series Sin City to life, keeping the hyper stylised aesthetic and hard boiled dialogue intact during the transition from page to screen. It was rightly lauded for its stunning visuals, mainly presented in black and white with flashes of vivid colour, and is the finest example of a true comic book to screen translation to date. Now, nine years later, Rodriguez and Miller have delivered the long awaited sequel, and, sadly, it could have stayed a wish in the heart of every Sin City fan, proving to be a tired, lazy retread of what delighted us almost a decade ago. Taking it's cue from the original, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is made up of a number of separate stories all taking place in the titular, corrupt city. Also like the first Sin City, »

New T.V. Spot For Interstellar

26 August 2014 9:26 AM, PDT

For many years now, a new Christopher Nolan film has been a pretty big deal. And Interstellar is no exception. Nolan tackling hard sci-fi is a tantalising prospect, especially with a cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, and, of course, Michael Caine. A new IMAX t.v. spot for the movie has come online, featuring some new footage, and a rousing voiceover from Mr. Caine. Check it out below. Released: November 7th 2014  Synopsis: A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. »

Bigfoot Attacks In Trailer For Exists

26 August 2014 2:43 AM, PDT

Found footage Bigfoot movies must be a genre I never knew existed, since two movies on the subject have come along within a short time of each other. First up was Bobcat Goldthwait's Willow Creek, and now we have Exists, from The Blair Witch Project co-director Eduardo Sanchez. While the Bigfoot factor is new and different, everything else in the below trailer seems pretty generic, especially the plot of a group of  young people going to a cabin in the woods only to party, only to end up fighting for their lives. Check out the trailer below. Released: October 24th »

New T.V. Spot For A Walk Among The Tombstones

26 August 2014 1:25 AM, PDT

A new t.v. spot for A Walk Among The Tombstones has come online, proving Liam Neeson has his current action star persona down to a tee. His current crop of movies, Taken 2 aside, have proved enjoyable, but I have a feeling this will give his acting muscles a work out, as well as his trigger finger. Released: 18th September Synopsis: Matt Scudder is an ex-nypd cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the Pi learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime…nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again. »

New Trailer For Gone Girl

26 August 2014 1:07 AM, PDT

A new, short but sweet trailer has come online for Gone Girl, and it some how does the impossible task of making me more excited for David Fincher's adaption of Gillian Flynn's (who also provides the screen play) acclaimed novel. The usual Fincher intensity is there, helped immensely by a fantastic cast, especially Ben Affleck on top form. Released: 3rd October Synopsis: With his wife's disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, Nick Dunne sees the spotlight turned on him when it's suspected that he may not be innocent. »

Chris Hemsworth And Charlie Day Join Vacation Reboot

26 August 2014 12:52 AM, PDT

A Vacation reboot has been in the works for a while now, and after a few stops and starts, the new adventures of the Griswold family attempting to have the perfect family vacation is ready to go, with filming set for next month. Ed Helms takes the role of Rusty Griswold (making this reboot also a sort of sequel, with the possibility that Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo will reprise their roles) who follows in his dad's footsteps, taking his family, including wife Christina Applegate, on an ill fated trip across America. Two new cast members have now been announced, with Chris Hemsworth signing on as the husband of Rusty's sister Audery (a role that is still uncast) and Charlie Day as a river rafting guide. The Vacation series is one I have a great deal of time for, so I am looking at this reboot with the same skepticism I have for all reboots. »

Richard Attenborough Remembered In New Jurassic World Image

26 August 2014 12:05 AM, PDT

The passing of Richard Attenborough saddened the entire world, and the tributes to the great man have come flooding in. The greatest and most fitting has to be from Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow who posted the below image to Twitter, a tribute to Attenborough's most beloved role as Jurassic Park founder John Hammond. It is highly unlikely the character makes an appearance in Jurassic World, but it is good to see the Hammond legacy is still alive the upcoming sequel. Released: June 12th 2015 »

Production Wraps On Irish Horror Movie From The Dark

25 August 2014 5:22 AM, PDT

Coming from Conor McMahon, director of cult horror movie Stitches, From The Dark, filmed on location in Co. Laois, has finished principal photography. Starring Irish talent Niamh Algar (Savage Eye), Stephen Cromwell (Love/Hate), and Gerry O'Brien (Reign of Fire), From The Dark tells the story of a young couple who encounter an ancient evil on a road trip through the Irish countryside. No word whether this will follow the humorous road taken by Stitches, but judging by the creepy first image from the movie above, featuring Algar trapped in an underground tunnel, I have a feeling McMahon might be tackling straight horror this time round. No release date has been given for From The Dark as of yet. »

James Bond 24 Wants To Bring Back The Iconic Bond Henchman?

25 August 2014 4:27 AM, PDT

In the early days of the Bond series, any villain worth his salt had an iconic henchman to give the sauve super spy a run for his money. Jaws and Oddjob are ones everyone know, but there have also been Donald "Red" Grant, Tee Hee, May Day, Mr. Stamper, Zao, and Xenia Onatopp to name just a few throughout the years. Since Daniel Craig has taken over , the imposing henchmen have been absent, casualty to the more serious tone the reboot was going for. But with Skyfall doing an about turn and fully embracing old school Bond, that element of the Bond series might be making a come back with James Bond 24. The movie, with Sam Mendes once again behind the camera, is set o begin production this December, and mi6-hq.com claim that the production are looking for actors to play a "pyshically imposing henchman".

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Disappoints At The U.S. Box Office

25 August 2014 3:19 AM, PDT

After nine years waiting for it, it seems Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hasn't found its audience in America, with the long awaited sequel making just an estimated $6.5 million at the U.S. box office. The movie opens today on this side of the pond so hopefully the Europeans will be much kinder to it, but it is expected the sequel will make no where close to the originals $158 million worldwide gross. Considering how many people were chomping at the bit to see a sequel since the original was released, this comes as a surprise. I didn't think it would match the original, but never even imagined it would do this badly. Could it be the sequel is nine years too late, and we are now over Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's hyper-stylised noir vision? Sound off below with your thoughts. »

25 August 2014 2:56 AM, PDT

Making his name with What Richard Did, Hollywood has really opened it's door for young Irish actor Jack Reynor, with prominent roles in The Delivery Man and Transformers: Age of Extinction already under his belt. Now another high profile movie is calling his name, with Reynor cast in Andy Serkis' Jungle Book: Origins. Said to be a darker retelling of the classic tale, a rival to the Jon Favreau directed version released next year, the movie already has an impressive cast lending their voices to the animal characters, with Benedict Cumberbatch (Shere Khan), Christian Bale (Bagheera), Cate Blanchett (Kaa), and Serkis himself (Baloo) all signed on. Reynor will play Brother Wolf, a member of the wolf pack Mowgli (Bad Word's Rohan Chand) is raised by. No word on when production begins, but Jungle Book: Origins is set for release October 21st 2016. »
