Mads Mikkelsen In Talks For Doctor Strange

4 hours ago

While the trippy and... ahem....strange world(s) of Doctor Strange may add up to this latest project from Marvel Studios to take on the label of ‘Marvel’s biggest gamble’, the second instalment of the studio’s Phase Three may have hit on a great solution to get audiences’ bids on seat for director Scott Derrickson’s (Sinister) exploration of the mystical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: populate it with an amazing cast of actors. Of course, the titular Master of the Mystic Arts will be played by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch, with Tilda Swinton taking on the role of his mentor, The Ancient One, and Chiwetel Ejiofor cast as his fellow student and eventual nemesis, Baron Mordo. Now, we can add another name to this already impressive list, with Variety reporting that Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks to take on a as yet unnamed villain role. »

A Record Opening Predicted For Star Wars: The Force Awakens

11 hours ago

While we can all agree that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to open Huge when it finally takes its bow on December 18th, early estimates for its opening weekend, I think, surpass all expectations. As per Deadline, industry analysts are alerting predicting, bear in mind its still August, a mind blowing $615 million + global opening of for our return to a galaxy far, far away, meaning it might easily crush the record set by Jurassic World’s $524 million opening weekend gross. If this comes to pass, it’s a given that it would reach the billion dollar mark quicker that Colin Trevorrow’s rampaging dinosaur actioner. The only thing that could hamper it’s global domination is that China, a huge market everyone in Hollywood is desperate to tap into, doesn’t release Hollywood movies in December. By no means is this sort of tracking an exact science, »

First Look At Assassin’s Creed

11 hours ago

The saga of Assassin’s Creed’s journey from the console to the big screen has been a long one, at one point it was completely taken off 20th Century Fox’s release schedule, but the wait is nearly over as it goes in front of the camera this Monday, taking in Malta, London, and Spain. To mark the event, Yahoo! have our first look at producer/star Michael Fassbender decked out in his finest assassin’s garb as the movie’s hero, Callum Lynch. You’ll agree, he certainly looks the part. Fans of the popular series should note that this isn’t a retelling of the events from the games and more of an expansion, telling new stories with new characters. That’s where Lynch comes in. A decedent of  the secret Assassin’s society, he unlocks genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, »

We Are Your Friends Review

11 hours ago

Set slap dab in the middle of the Edm (electronic dance music) scene, We Are Your Friends is your typical coming of age tale with Zac Efron as Cole Carter, a struggling young DJ who just wants to strike it big and become a major record producer. With superstar DJ James (Wes Bentley) as his mentor, Cole sees his dreams almost coming through, but when he falls for James’ girlfriend Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski), some difficult decisions must be made about his future. If you look at that synopsis and feel you’ve seen this story before, you are right, and that’s the major problem with We Are Your Friends as director Max Joseph (co-host of Catfish: The TV Show) can’t save this from just being painfully generic. There is some promise from the opening frame, with Joseph making some nifty stylistic choices in an attempt to make this something different. »

Watch James Spader as Ultron

19 hours ago

The Avengers Age Of Ultron (which we liked more or less) is about to hit home release and digital download over the next few weeks. To get us all excited, Marvel have released a nice behind the scenes clip, which will obviously feature as part of a more extended behind the scenes look. The clip shows James Spader in his Ultron mo-cap suit and besides looking cool , you get a great sense of performance! I also reckon there may be a chance for some mo cap style pyjamas as a business opportunity. Maybe a kickstarter? Anyway, check out the clip below »

What Fantastic Four Could Have Looked Like

26 August 2015 1:43 PM, PDT

No matter what stories (or deleted tweets) you believe, it easy to see from watching Fantastic Four that there was a lot more to the film than the uneven finished project that limped into cinemas. Now, thanks to artist Steve Jung, we get a look at what could have been in the form of early concept art that shed some light on Josh Trank’s original vision for Marvel’s First Family. While Planet Zero/The Negative Zone looks pretty much like it did in the movie, we do get a look at Doom’s castle, more than likely made with his very vague power set (Does he control the planet? Is he a Scanner?), which points to a much more cohesive third act. While we still have no idea what the original finale had in store for us, it has to be better than the one where Doom just »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens To Take Over All IMAX Screens In North America

26 August 2015 1:03 PM, PDT

We all know Star Wars: The Force Awakens is open Huge, but it might debut bigger than we all expected, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that  Jj Abrams highly anticipated return to a galaxy far, far away has booked every IMAX screen in North America  for one month, leaving other large format epics like The Revenant and In The Heart of the Sea without the boost an IMAX release would give. Not including foreign screens, this means The Force Awakens will have 375 to 400 IMAX screens solely to itself for four weeks, meaning quite a bit of extra coin in Disney’s pocket. While Warner Bros. and IMAX struck a similar deal with The Hobbit trilogy, something like this does’t really come around very often, but it is Star Wars we are talking about here, and with a chase sequence involving the Millennium Falcon (yes, that one that made »

The Martian Reveals A New Poster

26 August 2015 12:39 PM, PDT

Ridley Scott’s return to space with The Martian is one that we’re looking forward to here at The Movie Bit, and you only have to watch the latest trailer to see why. Now, a new poster has come our way, perfectly selling the outer space adventure, and putting probably it’s biggest draw, an incredibly endearing Matt Damon, front and centre. Released: 30th September (Irl/U.K.)/ 2nd October (U.S.) Synopsis: During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew.

Straight Outta Compton Review

25 August 2015 8:45 AM, PDT

Straight Outta Compton is a biopic of sorts of the birth of the famed N.W.A. music group, the emergence of the rap market in the 1980's and the influence that the music held over youth of that generation. It is also thrilling, bold and a brutally honest reflection of a dangerous era in one of the most dangerous neighbourhoods in the world; Compton, Los Angeles. Charting the emergence of gangster rap could only really be explained through the eyes of the guys who kicked it all off, and that's exactly what director F. Gary Gray has done in collaboration with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. The story is seen from the point of view of young men who are disillusioned with society and constant harassment at the hands of the police. Rather than suffer in silence anymore, they find their voice through rap and in turn they brought unheard of success to the genre. »

Jj Abrams Reveals More About Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Villains

25 August 2015 7:52 AM, PDT

We’re just under four months out from our long awaited return to a galaxy far, far away, and Jj Abrams has been talking with Empire (never stops being funny) about the new villains of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The First Order, dropping some details on their creation, revealing that they are not actually remnants of The Empire but instead a fanaticial group looking to continue on their work. A sort of Empire fan club if you will. Actually, Abrams puts it better himself, saying, “That all came out of conversations about what would have if the Nazis all went to Argentina but the started working together again? What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could Vader be a martyr? Could there be a need »
