TomorrowWorld 2014: Welcome To The Madness

50 minutes ago

If you’re at all into Edm, you’re likely familiar with TomorrowWorld. The North American counterpart to ID&T’s acclaimed and widely loved Tomorrowland, the festival had its rookie outing last year and though it was, by all accounts, a success, there was definite room for improvement. So, heading into its sophomore outing, ravers and critics alike had high hopes for an equally, if not more successful event.

Thankfully, the organizers brought their A-game, as Edm’s heaviest hitters ascended upon Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia to deliver an unforgettable three day experience, one that will no doubt prove ID&T to be every bit as adept at putting together a festival as their chief rival, Insomniac.

Taking place in the aforementioned Chattahoochee Hills, which is not so conveniently located about an hour outside of Atlanta (thankfully, shuttles were provided, at a charge, from most of the major hotels downtown »

Stalker Series Premiere Review: “Pilot” (Season 1, Episode 1)

1 hour ago

CBS’s newest procedural drama, Stalker, didn’t waste any time jumping right into the subject matter, so I won’t either. In the very first scene, viewers watched as Pretty Little LiarsTorrey DeVitto made a brief cameo on the show before literally going up in flames. The death of her character became the basis for tonight’s primary investigation, but viewers can already clearly see several longer lasting storylines starting to take root within the narrative.

For an introduction, the writers scored major points by going big. Off the bat they make a graphic statement about what viewers can expect from the show, and it’s fairly intense, although not entirely original. This series will have to give viewers something worthwhile if it wants to keep its fanbase intact.

Stalker sees Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott playing a pair of new partners, Lieutenant Beth Davis and Detective Jack Larsen, »

10 Under-The-Radar Films Not To Miss This Fall

2 hours ago

As the leaves change color and the temperatures drop, the Oscar race heats up. While the summer left adults with relatively few choices outside of a couple dramas and some blockbusters that appealed beyond a younger demographic, the autumn movie season more than makes up for the lack of moviegoing choices for mature audiences.

However, while many of you are likely anticipating several awards season contenders – Gone Girl, Birdman, Foxcatcher – and likely blockbusters such as Interstellar and the third Hunger Games film, there are some under-the-radar players that could manage to eke out enough attention in theatres (and, for some, On Demand) to capture a little bit of the awards flavor. After all, you never know which titles could be vying for a best foreign language film Oscar or some Independent Spirit Awards.

So, on that note, here are 10 under-the-radar films that you should definitely catch this fall.

6 Successful Cinematic Updates To Classic Fairy Tales

2 hours ago

Fantasy embedded in folklore, brimming with romance, heroism and magical enchantments – fairy tales have been with us since the dawn of mankind’s imagination; handed down from generation to generation – first in the oral tradition, and later, in literature. The term ‘fairy tale’ was first coined by French writer Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, Baroness d’Aulnoy in reference to her own work, and has since been adopted to encompass an entire genre, in which witches, trolls, giants, elves and sprites are not only commonplace, they often drive the action.

These days, when we think of fairy tales, we usually think of either the funky mash-ups of the Shrek franchise, or the ‘classic’ Disney movies – pretty young things, perfectly rendered in animation, twirling among helpful animals while singing with the voice of an angel. Those movies are somewhat dated now, however, and Hollywood seems keen to re-adjust that picture – remaking »

Daniel Radcliffe Has A Role In Now You See Me 2

2 hours ago

Michael Caine has let it slip that Daniel Radcliffe will have a role in Now You See Me 2. While doing an interview this evening at Royal Albert Hall, the actor revealed the following information about the upcoming sequel to 2013′s surprise hit:

“There’s a sequel to Now You See Me and we’re shooting in London. I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it’d be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son.”

Set to drop in 2016, not much is known about the plot of Now You See Me 2. What we do know, however, is that the original cast are all returning and Jon M. Chu is likely the top candidate to direct. Aside from that though, we’re still very much in the dark on this one.

Still, it’s hard not to »

Exclusive Interview With Edgar Ramirez On The Liberator

3 hours ago

Directed by Alberto Arvelo and written by Timothy J. Sexton, The Liberator introduces us to Simon Bolivar, the military and political leader who played a key role in Latin America’s successful struggle for independence from the Spanish Empire in the 1800s. Bolivar was said to have fought over 100 battles in South America and ridden over 70,000 miles on horseback. But while his military campaigns covered twice the territory of Alexander the Great, he and his army were liberators instead of conquerors.

Playing Simon Bolivar in The Liberator is Edgar Ramirez, who is best known for his roles in Carlos, Domino, The Bourne Ultimatum and Zero Dark Thirty. We watch as Ramirez takes Bolivar from being the son in a rich family to becoming a man who finds a renewed sense of purpose when he joins the growing colonial revolt against the Spanish crown.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Shows Off Its Customization Options

7 hours ago

To help players immerse themselves within not only the combat, but also the storyline and party systems found in Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare has created a rather detailed customization system. Therein, those who decide to take up a sword, dagger, mace or staff against evil will be able to create their own unique character — by choosing from both sexes and several different races — and perfect their own custom attack plans. The latter aspect expectedly involves menus and party members, and can go as far as the creation of tonics and grenades, as well as custom armor, it seems.

All of the above is detailed in Inquisition‘s brand new gameplay trailer, which you can see below. Check it out and be sure to pick up Dragon Age: Inquisition on November 18th.

William Hurt Joins Jesse Owens Biopic Race

7 hours ago

Focus Features have added veteran actor William Hurt to the cast of their Jesse Owens biopic, Race. The actor will take on the role of Jeremiah Mahoney, the president of the Amateur Athletic Union, who spearheaded efforts to boycott the 1936 Olympics.

The movie, penned by Frankie And Alice writers Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel, is based on the real story of American athlete, Jesse Owens. Now a legend, the movie will tell his backstory before he became a four-time Olympic gold medalist and track-event pioneer. On board to direct is noted TV director Stephen Hopkins (Californication, House Of Lies). The film, which has the distinct aroma of award-bait, has already accrued a solid cast, despite undergoing a shuffle in its line-up earlier this year.

Along with Hurt to flesh out the call sheet for the sports biopic are Jeremy Irons (Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Margin Call), Carice Van Houten »

Shirts Off To A Murderous Katherine Heigl In Home Sweet Hell Red Band Trailer

8 hours ago

Katherine Heigl is exorcising some personal demons in the new red band trailer for Home Sweet Hell. The ex-Grey’s Anatomy star, who has been lambasted in the column inches and blogosphere for being a difficult actress to work with, takes an axe to all that talk… and then makes Patrick Wilson follow suit.

The black comedy story follows Heigl’s controlling, Ocd-inflicted housewife, Mona Champagne, who totally loses it when she discovers her husband, furniture salesman Don Champagne (Wilson), has committed adultery And impregnated his mistress. Instead of the typical actions of a wronged woman in cinema, chain-smoking and shredding clothes then throwing them histrionically from a high-rise window, she bestows a fate on poor Don that’s far, far worse. She makes him commit murder.

The overall tone here is of a cheeky, Serial Mom-esque vibe. Heigl channels her typically uptight romcom role via way of Dexter. »

Begin Again With This Knife Party Music Video

8 hours ago

Knife Party have been pretty busy lately building hype for their upcoming album Abandon Ship, which sets sail on October 27th. They’ve already released a few tracks from it and today, we have a music video for one of them.

The Pendulum-esque song, Begin Again, is actually my favorite of what we’ve heard so far from the new disc, so I’m pleased to see that it’s receiving a visual accompaniment. A futuristic video that suits the music well, I’m definitely digging what I see here.

Unfortunately, the song is being criticized heavily, with fans calling it too light and melodic for a Knife Party track. While that may be the case, I absolutely love it and am pleased to see them supporting it with a music video.

Check out the visuals for Begin Again below and let us know if you think the song strays »

Jacob Lofland Takes On Pivotal Role In Maze Runner: Scorch Trials

8 hours ago

If you caught last year’s drowsy Southern drama, Mud, the name Jacob Lofland will be one you might recognise. Failing that, his character’s monicker Neckbone might ring a bell. In Jeff Nichols’ insightful childhood pic, Lofland rose above the slumbering pace of the otherwise cracking movie. His quick delivery and earnestness marked him as a promising star to keep an eye on. Now, that promise has come to pass, as Lofland has been cast in Ya sequel, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials.

Lofland will play Aris Jones, a kid with a mysterious connection to the maze. After the original tribe of kids are on the loose after their escape, they encounter Aris, who could help them to discover more about the maze’s history. Lofland’s an up-and-coming talent, who will no doubt be a brilliant addition to the youthful ensemble.

Yasmine Fires Back At Kris’ Claims About Krewella

9 hours ago

Yesterday, we reported that Krewella‘s Kris Trindl was filing a lawsuit against Yasmine and Jahan Yousaf on the grounds that they unfairly kicked him out of the group. Now, Yasmine is firing back, as she has released a statement online asking fans not to believe everything that they’re hearing and thanking those who have supported her.

Check it out below:

“Today was 1 of the most emotional days of my life. I know I don’t even have to explain why, as the whole internet-sphere knows by now, but reading so many false claims about my sister and me coming straight from Kris cut me deeper than anything I’ve experienced in my life. I can’t say much as this is a legal issue (and I hope that none of you will ever experience a lawsuit and know what it feels like not to be able to defend »

Dracula Untold Reshoots Connect The Movie To Universal’s Monsterverse

9 hours ago

A few months back, we heard news via Badass Digest that Universal had ordered a set of reshoots on their vampire reboot, Dracula Untold. The specifics surrounding the new footage were hazy at best. What we do know is that the studio had opted to lens a few extra pick-up scenes so that the movie could be slotted into its upcoming “monsterverse.” Their proposed rebooting of their hottest – and oldest – monster properties fully intends to base itself on Marvel’s Cinematic Universe model.

With that being said, the outlet have now backed up their earlier reporting. Apparently early word coming out of previews for the film indicates that the one day’s worth of shooting has nestled itself onto the end of the flick. Of course, tacking on pre, post and mid-credits scenes is a practice that Marvel have honed to perfection. Their continued success has hinged largely upon the »

The Twilight Saga Set To Return In A Series Of Female-Directed Short Films

9 hours ago

Are you surprised? No, of course not! The Twilight Saga, that trend-setting Ya trilogy adaptation that brought in a colossal $3.5 million worldwide, is not over yet. The most astonishing part of today’s news is that Lionsgate waited nearly two years since the last instalment’s release to announce a series reboot.

Before you get all uppity, retire that tirade you’ve been saving for the next Twilight fan you are cornered by at a cosplay event. You know, the one you’ve been working on about the franchise’s damning effects on young women and how it sets back feminism about a hundred years. Yes. Put a leash on that rhetoric, because today’s press release from the studio is actually a very refreshing read.

The new five-part film series, entitled The Storytellers – New Creative Voices Of The Twilight Saga, will be a co-operative effort between Lionsgate and Women In Film. »

Robert Downey Jr. Hints Once More At The Possibility Of Iron Man 4

10 hours ago

A quick glimpse into the We Got This Covered news archive on Iron Man 4 is like watching a tennis ball constantly being volleyed across a net. Yes, there’s going to be a fourth instalment. No, it’s unlikely. Yes, it’ll possibly happen but without Robert Downey Jr. When exactly will a firm stance on Marvel’s most successful cinematic character arrive? That day is not today, folks.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the matter was once more addressed. In typical Downey Jr. fashion, the coy actor gave a vague answer that will no doubt delight/enrage fans of the suited billionaire:

“I’m sure we’ll ride that thing. You’ve got to surf that all the way in to shore.”

It’s not exactly a guarantee, or even a hard no. In fact, it points towards the continuation of Iron Man’s journey should he »

James Franco Is Producing A Frat Hazing Movie Called Goat

10 hours ago

James Franco’s list of personal and professional achievements continues to dazzle and/or perplex the public at large. Between his mission to adapt William Faulkner’s most unfilmable novels, impress the New York art scene with his canvases, and become an established author via his volumes of poetry and short stories, the man somehow fits in time to produce movies as well. On that note, today we’re hearing that his production company, Rabbit Bandini, will be producing a frat hazing flick titled Goat.

The movie will mark a reunion of sorts for Franco, who’ll once more be working with Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green. However, the Pineapple director won’t be calling the shots this time – although he was originally slated to. His original line-up for the flick even had casting underway, with Emile Hirsch attached in the lead role. After Green opted out of directing, »

The 100 Treats Fans To A Sneak Peak Of Season 2

11 hours ago

Jason Rothenberg, the creator of the hit CW drama The 100, recently challenged fans via Twitter to show their support for the show. As a reward, they received an exclusive sneak peak of season two in the form of the first three minutes of the season premiere, and you won’t believe what’s in store.

#The100 fans! Want to see an Exclusive preview of the season 2 premiere? Let’s get this to 1000 retweets by Wednesday! Ready, set… Go.

Jason Rothenberg (@JRothenbergTV) September 29, 2014

When The 100 wrapped up its freshman season last spring, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) was one of several surviving members of the 100 taken hostage by the mysterious “mountain men,” and was being held at Mt. Weather. Season two picks back up with Clarke, still being kept in what looks like a sterile examination room, being monitored by some sort of closed-circuit feed. Besides watching Clarke ponder exactly what is going on, »

Dredd Fans Declare October 1st “Day Of Dredd,” Push For Sequel

11 hours ago

Are you ready, rookies? Fans of 2012′s Dredd, a would-be series starter adapted from the iconic British comic anthology series 2000 Ad, are lighting up social media today by declaring October 1st, 2014 to be the second annual “Day of Dredd,” an event devoted to campaigning for a live-action sequel to the Pete Travis-directed flick.

Though Dredd wasn’t a big hit in theaters, it has found an extraordinary second life on home video. Since the film’s release, the so-called Dreddheads have been loudly and consistently candid about their desire to see a Dredd 2, regularly pushing for fans to purchase the movie on DVD and/or Blu-Ray, watch it on a streaming service like Netflix, Amazon Prime or Google Play, use the hashtag #DayofDredd on Twitter and Facebook, and sign an official petition.

More than 125,000 people have signed the petition to date, and so much attention has been brought to »

Ben Affleck In Talks To Star In The Accountant

11 hours ago

Currently on a brief hiatus from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Ben Affleck is deep in press mode for Gone Girl. The mystery thriller-cum-narrative headscratcher is riding a wave of critical praise leading up to its general release this Friday. In the movie, Affleck’s nuanced performance as a troubled husband is proof that his stints in front of the camera are equally as impressive as those behind. While there was a time when it seemed he’d be leaving acting behind – after his Argo Oscar triumph – that’s definitely not the case.

Variety is reporting today that Warner Bros. are courting Affleck for their thriller, The Accountant. Sounds a million miles away from the dark, atmospheric action to which Batman is accustomed. Or does it? A closer look at the brief logline indicates that the movie is more in sync with the masked vigilante than you might first think. »

Mockingbird Could Transfer From Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. To The Avengers

11 hours ago

When anyone is cast on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it immediately raises the question of whether or not that character could then make the jump from the small screen to the silver screen and join the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One such question arose this past summer when Friday Night Lights and G.I. Joe: Retaliation actress Adrianne Palicki joined Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Bobbi Morse a.k.a. Mockingbird, a member of the Avengers in the comics and the eventual wife of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).

And while it’s completely possible that Mockingbird could appear on the big screen someday, it was previously unclear if that was a viable option. According to Palicki herself, however, it’s not only possible, but it’s already been discussed.

When promoting her upcoming film John Wick, Palicki spoke with IGN and said the following about playing Bobbi Morse, »
