First Teaser Trailer For Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur

19 hours ago

Originally set to come our way last year, Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur has had it’s fair share troubles on the way to the big screen, including original director Bob Peterson (co-director on Up) being removed from the project, and being replaced by his own co-director Peter Sohn (short movie Partly Cloudy). Now the first teaser has being released, giving us our first real look at Pixar’s buddy comedy, which follows young dinosaur Arlo (Lucas Neff), who makes an unlikely friend with a human boy while on an epic journey in a world where dinosaurs were never wiped out. While you don’t really get a feel for what The Good Dinosaur has in store for us with this teaser, there’s no denying the Pixar charm is intact. And while there was no Pixar movie last year (the first time since 2006), it looks like we’ll be »

Jason Statham Returns To The Gangster Flick!

2 June 2015 2:30 AM, PDT

Jason Statham is returning to the genre that first put him on our radar, with a direct sequel to Layer Cake! The movie, adapted from the book Viva La Madness, follows on straight from the events of the 2004 film, and Statham is hoping to get the cameras rolling on it next year. Statham will produce as well as star, and he'll be playing an unnamed drug-dealing hero from the book. Once again Jj Connolly, the author of Layer Cake and Viva La Madness, will be adapting his own work, so expect more of the same dark sense of humour and East London violence. No word on what they intend to do with Daniel Craig's character, although not being familiar with the book, I can't even tell you if he's relevant to the plot. Craig won't be returning, nor will Matthew Vaughan, but I for one am pretty stoked to »

There's Gonna Be Big Trouble In Little China Again!!

2 June 2015 12:15 AM, PDT

Wonder what 'ol Jack Burton would have to say about this...it's been reported that Fox is on board for a remake of Big Trouble In Little China, with one of the most bankable stars on the planet for the lead. Dwayne Johnson is rumoured to be top choice to don the sweaty vest of everyone's favourite trucker for a mystical melee in Chinatown, and he's also the man behind the remake, as his production company are the ones who came with the idea to Fox. The original movie was a financial flop in the 80's, taking just $11 million, before becoming something of a cult classic. Starring Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrell, it's goofy, insane and full of silly dialogue; which all adds up to one of the best films of that decade. As a fan of the original, I'm hugely excited, as it is one of those movies that »

1 June 2015 11:59 PM, PDT

It’s about a month on a half till Paul Rudd’s size shrinking Ant-Man jumps from the comic book page to the big screen, and Marvel have released a bunch of new images, giving us great look at the cast, including our first look at David Dastmalchian (probably best known as Joker’s deranged henchman Thomas Schiff in The Dark Knight) as Kurt, and plenty of instances of Ant-Man’s powers in action.

President Snow’s Reign Is At An End In New The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Poster

1 June 2015 11:10 AM, PDT

The promo campaigns for the previous The Hunger Games movie have always been pretty clever, tapping into the world of movies in increasingly awesome ways. The latest poster for Mockingly Part 2 is no exception, feeling like a propaganda poster you would see plastered all over the walls of District 13. On top of that, the campaign has gone viral with thecapitol.pn now hacked into by the resistance. Released: November 20th Synopsis: With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown.

The T-1000 Attacks In New Terminator Genisys Clip

1 June 2015 11:00 AM, PDT

A new clip from Terminator Genisys has come our way, featuring Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) hunted by the T-1000, sporting the new face of Byung-hun Lee. It’s actually a pretty neat clip that does pack in a nice bit of tension, and features Emila Clarke’s Sarah Connor deliver that iconic line “Come with me if you want to live”. While it’s a nice little touch to have it in her first appearance (the line feels like its to the Terminator franchise what “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” is to Star Wars), there’s something off about the Mother of Dragon’s delivery that I can’t quite put my finger on. Check it out below. Released: July 1stSynopsis: John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, »

New Featurette Sheds Light On Colin Trevorrow’s Vision For Jurassic World

1 June 2015 9:51 AM, PDT

Jurassic Park is rightfully a classic, so all eyes are on Jurassic World to see if it will do justice to Steven Spielberg’s original. Indie director Colin Trevorrow (who was revealed to be not returning for a future sequel) may have seemed like an odd choice to take it on, but a new featuette has come our way, which puts focus on his vision for the series, and makes a great case for why he’s the right person for the job. Released: June 12th »

The Predator Fights Templar Knights In New Fan Film

1 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT

While everybody was focused on the Alien skull in Predator 2, a much more interesting detail was dropped at the end of the film with the reveal that the universe’s most dangerous hunter has made mark in various era’s of Earth’s past. The predator movies that followed never really took advantage of this intriguing nugget of information, so thank god for writer director James Bushe and the team behind Predator: Dark Ages, a highly accomplished short fan film which transports us the middle ages, and pits the Predator against a group of Templar Knights tasked with ridding their lands of a ‘demon’. For a fan film, everything is spot-on, from the movies look to the sound track, and is an impressive feat for all those involved. »

David Ayer Promises That There Are Still Plenty Of Surprises In Suicide Squad

1 June 2015 8:32 AM, PDT

In the last few weeks, there has been quite a few behind the scenes shots liking onto the Internet from the Toronto set of Suicide Squad, from close up shots of the villains we’ll be cheering on next year to a certain Dark Knight giving chase to the Clown Prince of Crime. To say the set hasn’t been that secure could be a bit of an under statement, but no matter the circumstances of the leaks (you always have to consider this could the studios using fans for their own ends), they have certainly built up quite a bit of hype for a movie that may have had a few people scratching their heads when the movie was first announced. But now as the filming moves from real life locations to sound stages, director David Ayer has taken to Twitter, stating that it’s ‘time to go dark »

Check Out Concept Art From George Miller’s Cancelled Justice League Movie

1 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT

With Mad Max: Fury Road reminding everybody of what a visionary director George Miller is, his now defunct Justice League: Mortal is in the public eye again, now as a subject of a proposed documentary chronicling it’s development and cancellation (very much in the same vein as The Death of Superman Lives, which shed light on Tim Burton’s Superman movie starring Nicolas Cage). Set for release in 2009, it was meant to be the beginning of new franchise featuring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of DC Comics’ pantheon of super heroes, completely separate from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight saga which was then just beginning. Filming was set for Miller’s native Australia, with Weta handling the special effects, and a good chunk of the cast had been found with Armie Hammer set to don Batman’s cowl, G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s D.J. Cotrona signed on as Superman, »

Fan Petition Calls For Disney To Revive Tron 3

1 June 2015 6:28 AM, PDT

A few days ago, the sad news came our way the Disney would not be moving forward with Tron 3 (possibly soured by the fact their latest live action adventure, Tomorrowland, is under performing at the box office), even though the project had been in development for quite some time and was set to go in front of the cameras later this year. Needless to say, Tron fans were not happy by this turn of events, and have taken to change.org with a petition to get Disney to change their minds, and it is gaining quite a bit of momentum. At the time of writing, it has 11, 509 supporters of the 15,000 it needs, meaning their are quite a few people out there clamouring for a return to The Grid. This isn’t really anything new. A petition was famously started to get a sequel to Dredd, and while that was an »

Colin Trevorrow Not Returning For Jurassic World Sequel

1 June 2015 6:02 AM, PDT

While we’re still a week and half out from Jurassic World rampaging onto the big screen, tracking on the highly anticipated sequel suggests an incredibly impressive $100 million plus opening weekend, so of course there are talks of further adventures featuring cloned dinosaurs and ill fated theme parks. but don’t expect director Colin Trevorrow to oversee another bout of dino infused mayhem. Speaking to BadTaste.it (and picked up by Coming Soon) at the world premiere in France, Trevorrow revealed that he would not be returning for the fourth Jurassic Park sequel, saying, “Jurassic World is like Star Wars. Different directors can give a different taste to each movie. I would be involved in some way, but not as director”. While the two can't really be compared, Star Wars are far more story and character based than the episodic Jurassic Park movies, the jist of what he’s saying is pretty clear. »
