Martin Freeman Joins Captain America: Civil War

5 hours ago

We know Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Chadwick Boseman, Frank Grillo, Elizabeth Olsen, and Daniel Bruhl are making up the massive cast of Captain America: Civil War. But now, that cast is growing by one with Marvel Studios announcing that they are dipping into the cast of Sherlock once again, after casting Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, with Martin Freeman joining their Phase Three kick-off. There’s no word on who he will be playing, but with Grillo and Bruhl pulling villain duties, and more than enough heroes around, I have the feeling it could be an original, possibly one of the politicians trying to pass the Superhuman registration act. Of course, time will tell if I’m right. Captain America: Civil War is set for release 6th May 2016. »

The First Clip From Poltergeist Is Here!

11 hours ago

The closer we get to its release, the more giddy I become for Gil Kenan’s remake of the classic haunted hose movie, Poltergeist. It’s movie I loved growing up, and Kenan’s Monster House, where he made a kid’s cartoon genuinely creepy and scary, proved he’s the man for the job. Now, the first clip has come our way, turning the creep levels all the way up to eleven as the evil spirits terrorising the Bowen house begin to make their presence felt. Released: 22nd May Synopsis: Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever. »

New Indiana Jones Movie Confirmed

11 hours ago

The purchase of Lucasfilm by Disney may have lead to several new Star Wars movies dotting the horizon, but the purchase also means another major franchise now lives in the House of Mouse: Indiana Jones. A fifth adventure for everybody’s favourite bull whip cracking archeologist has been  rumoured for quite some time now, but we never really got anything concrete. Now, that changes with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy revealing to Vanity Fair that Indy 5 “will one day be made inside this company”. But, while she’s optimistic that it will one happen, she also added that it is very early days at this stage, “When it will happen I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it”. With all of Lucasfilm’s attention on the Star Wars franchise at the moment, it may be a couple of »

Will Boba Fett Be The Focus Of The Second Star Wars Anthology Movie?

4 May 2015 3:20 PM, PDT

While Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will be with us next year, its follow up, due out in 2018, has been making the news in a big way this week, due to Josh Trank leaving the project. Now, attention turns once again to the now directorless spin-off, with The Wrap reporting that the movie will focus on fan favourite bounty hunter, Boba Fett. This has been a turn of events that has being rumoured for quite a while now (it would be a stupid move not to exploit such a beloved character), and while the outlet says it will be an origin movie, Boba Fett’s origins have already being explored in Attack of the Clones. Most likely, if it does go ahead, the movie will follow the galaxy’s favourite bad ass on an adventure leading up to his appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. It’s all a rumour at this stage, »

4 May 2015 2:53 PM, PDT

Keanu Reeves’ supremely entertaining revenge thriller John Wick didn’t fail to delight American audiences last year, and while it landed on our shores only last month, we can attest that it lived up to hype. Now, Reeves’ legendary hitman will be back, with Lionsgate confirming that he, directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, and screenwriter Derek Kolstad have all signed on the dotted line for John Wick 2. That’s all we know at this very early stage, but I for one can’t wait. How do you feel about John Wick’s return? Sound off below with your thoughts. »

Will Poulter To Don Clown Makeup For It Remake

4 May 2015 2:38 PM, PDT

Riding high on the success of True Detective, Cary Fukunaga is currently in the middle of pre-production on his next project, a two part big screen adaption of Stephen King’s It, already brought to the small screen as a 1990’s miniseries. According to Variety, the first piece of casting has been finalised, with We’re The Miller’s and The Maze Runner’s Will Poulter singing on the dotted line to play the star of the show Pennywise, a terrifying monster who takes the form of a clown to lure children to their deaths. It’s a very interesting choice for a role that was made iconic by Tim Curry in the original version. With the likes of the much older Ben Mendelsohn (Black Sea) and Mark Rylance (The Gunman) eyed for the role, word has it that New Line Cinema wanted to go younger, and Funkunaga couldn’t »

Gwendoline Christine's Role In Star Wars: The Force Awakens Revealed

4 May 2015 10:26 AM, PDT

Believe it or not, Vanity Fair has been your one stop shop for all The Force Awakens info on this May the Fourth, with behind the scenes pictures and the reveal of who will be behind the mask of the villainous Kylo Ren. Now, they have revealed previously unknown role of Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie, and it's a character we've have seen all too briefly in the latest trailer for Jj Abrams highly anticipated continuation of the Star Wars saga. Glimpsed clad in her pretty sweet chrome Stormtrooper armour, Christie will be playing Captain Phasma, an officer in the First Order (we've been hearing quite a lot of this today. Are they The Force Awakens answer to the Empire?) with a legion of Stormtroopers under her command, who will be taking up villain duties beside Adam Driver's Kylo Ren. »

A Game Of Clones–Star Wars in popular culture

4 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

A long time ago, in a Marin county ranch, George Lucas never thought Star Wars would make a few bucks at the box office, let alone ingrain itself in popular culture in a way that no other movie ever has or will do again. Not to mention change the movie world forever!! Remember that big wave at the end of Perfect Storm? Or those big, rampaging dinosaurs in Jurassic Park? Or even that alien water tentacle in The Abyss. Well, thank Star Wars for that, specifically Industrial Light and Magic, the greatest effects house in history who were set up and tasked with creating everything from X-Wings to lightsabers and have done ever since. Or how about TV? Besides the much "loved" Star Wars holiday special, Star Wars references and bits are made every single day on TV. Many of the greatest moments have involved the talk show circuit with »

Simon Pegg Has Absolute Power In Trailer For Absolutely Anything

3 May 2015 5:49 PM, PDT

Considering his previous credits include Monty Python's Life of Brian and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it's no surprise that Terry Jones' latest effort, Absolutely Anything, promises to be a supremely silly of very British comedy. The first trailer sets up the premise perfectly, with a group of aliens (voiced by Jones and the rest of Monty Python) testing the capacity for good and evil in humanity by granting the power to do absolutely anything to a cynical teacher Neil (Simon Pegg). Of course, Neil wields this power in selfish ways, including giving himself the perfect body, immense success, and granting his the power of speech to his dog (voiced by Robin Williams in one of his final roles). The main meat of the story is thankfully kept under warps, and hopefully it remains there until the movie hits in a few months time, because this promises to »
