Rumor: Callan Mulvey Playing KGBeast In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?

6 hours ago

You’d think with the relentless media spotlight on next year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, practically every plot point and character from the blockbuster would have leaked out onto the Internet long ago, but here we are today with another unconfirmed rumor related to the hotly anticipated pic.

Scoopster Umberto Gonzalez, who hasn’t been fanning the flames of fan speculation so much as holding up the gasoline hose, is reporting that he’s uncovered Callan Mulvey’s mystery role in the flick. According to his sources, Mulvey is playing none other than Batman antagonist KGBeast, also known as Anatoli Knyazev, a servant of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor.

More News From The Web

Months back, we picked up Birth.Movies.Death’s report that Knyazey would factor into the film. As per that site’s earlier scoop:

At any rate, one of Luthor’s agents has a name, »

Bruce Boxleitner Has Given Up On Tron

7 hours ago

Hey Tron fans, thought your days of bad news were finally over after Disney scuttled Tron 3?  Think again. During a recent interview, Bruce Boxleitner, known as one of the sci-fi franchise’s most enduring champions, revealed that he has finally given up the ghost and moved on from the possibility of ever playing Alan Bradley/Tron again.

Talking to /Film, Boxleitner communicated his immense displeasure with Disney’s hot-and-cold treatment of the Tron movies and explained that he’s been fooled one too many times to get his hopes up again. The excerpt, below:

“I don’t really care anymore,” Bradley said when I asked him if he thought Tron 3 might get revived down the road. “I’m done with it. I’ve moved on. I hate to say that but it’s been too up and down for me. I would rather not just keep going. I don’t »

Ubisoft: Addition Of Playable Female Lead In Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Is “Not Lip Service”

7 hours ago

After drawing criticism for its handling of playable female characters in last year’s Unity – characters that were reportedly “too difficult to animate” –  Ubisoft has responded to those pigeonholing the addition of Evie Frye in Victorian-themed Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, stating that it was an organic decision from the get-go, and not simply lip-service.

In fact, according to Creative Director Marc-Alexis Cote, the team at Ubisoft Quebec began work on the siblings long before the kerfuffle surrounding Unity‘s female characters came to the fore. Speaking to GameSpot, Cote admitted that while “cynics will be cynics,” the notion of dual protagonists was at the core of the project since it began life two-and-a-half years ago.

“[Evie and Jacob have] both been part of the experience from the very beginning. Cynics will be cynics, and it’s unfortunate, but we’ve been so focused on build this game the way we want with those two characters, »

Overhauled Wii U Launch Title ZombiU Coming To PS4, Xbox One And PC Next Month

7 hours ago

London has fallen, and Gerard Butler is nowhere to be seen. In finally putting the rumors to bed, Ubisoft has formally confirmed Zombi for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, an upgraded version of the once-Wii U exclusive. It’ll shuffle onto these platforms as a digital-only release on August 18.

Given that the zombie-slaying first-person title was designed with the console’s GamePad in mind, its transition to current-gen consoles and PC has produced a series of gameplay tweaks. From a widened field of view to the overhauled mini-map, the publisher took to its official blog to detail these improvements in question.

We maintain a minimal Hud as much as possible. It disappears when not required, giving the game a very lonely feeling. If you have surround sound, the awesome sound mix from the original still stands and greatly helps immersion. As much as possible, we’ve tried to keep those key elements. »

Hitman: Agent 47 Featurette Introduces Rupert Friend As The Stone-Cold Assassin

7 hours ago

20th Century Fox has today unveiled a new featurette for its upcoming video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, which takes a tentative peak into the mind of the stone cold, genetically enhanced killing machine.

Stepping into the shoes of the titular one-man army is Homeland star Rupert Friend, who is on a mission to sabotage the cloning process that brought him into this world as an emotionless sharpshooter. As a result, Friend’s Agent 47 will have his proverbial crosshairs trained on Thomas Kretschmann’s Le Clerq, the chairman of a twisted organisation known as Syndicate International. In order to do so, our protagonist must track down his daughter, Katia van Dees (Hannah Ware).

Making his feature-film debut is Aleksander Bach, who will oversee the high-octane actioner for Fox. With a cast list that encompasses Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, Dan Bakkedahl and Ciaran Hinds, Hitman: Agent 47 need not »

Mat Zo’s Back On The Scene With This Remix Of Arty’s Stronger

8 hours ago

It feels like it’s been ages since we’ve seen any Mat Zo headlines that don’t have to do with his epic Twitter tirade, and his publicists certainly don’t seem willing to put him all the way back in the spotlight just yet (we know, we tried). His latest release doesn’t appear to have been his own doing, though – his long-awaited remix of Arty’s “Stronger” has surfaced, and now everybody’s talking about him again.

Where the original’s anthemic vocal was met with a surging, main stage-igniting synth lead, funky orchestral elements add an element of nu-disco nostalgia to Mat Zo’s rendition. Given that the two artists collaborated on such seminal trance hits as “Mozart” and “Rebound” for the Anjunabeats label, the change in direction perhaps speaks more to Mat Zo’s “musical Adhd” than anything, as it doesn’t quite do the »

Mistrust And Internal Conflict Bubble Over In Latest Screens For The Walking Dead Season 6

8 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

Entertainment Weekly has slipped past security and into the walled-off haven of Alexandria, returning with a fresh batch of screenshots for AMC’s hotly-anticipated The Walking Dead season 6 – and a cookie or two from Carol.

Acting as the cover star of the latest issue – bringing together Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride and Norman Reedus for a rather cheeky shoot – EW has also uncovered the first details about the events of the upcoming season. With the future and safety of Alexandria hanging in the balance, there’s tension on both sides of the wall, as Rick and his ragtag group of survivors experience “a lot of internal conflict,” according to Reedus, who returns as fan-favorite Daryl. “A lot of characters that you didn’t see having beef are starting to have beef—there’s a lot of mistrust.”

New Black Mass Trailer Shows The Rise Of A Kingpin

8 hours ago

When Scott Cooper’s Black Mass was announced, many criticized the mobster drama for seemingly glorifying the reign of terror that James “Whitey” Bulger carried out across the city of Boston for years even while working as an FBI informant to take down the Italian mob. And, unfortunately, the first full trailer for the pic likely won’t do much to set their minds at ease.

Though Johnny Depp’s transformative portrayal of the gangster certainly paints him as an unsavory, sadistic character, the preview makes the mistake of soundtracking the gangster’s apparent invincibility and penchant for brutality with Yelawolf’s “Till It’s Gone,” a pulse-pounding track that romanticizes the dangerous nature of his criminal lifestyle.

Still, though Black Mass isn’t looking like the most sensitive treatment of Bulger’s story, especially given that the families of many of his victims still grieve and suffer today as »

Claptone Pulls Some Strings With Puppet Theatre

8 hours ago

House heads rejoice! Berlin house favorite Claptone has announced his highly anticipated debut album, Charmer, releasing one of its singles a couple months early. The man behind the golden mask has served up “Puppet Theatre,” offering a taste of the soul-tinged house that’s become synonymous with his eccentric stage persona.

The track begins with a dissonant piano melody before the delicate harmonies of vocalists Peter, Bjorn and John kick in, setting a dark ambience. Between contemplative lyrics, rich instrumental samples and minimal synth work, the single maintains a promising degree of crossover potential without being a complete bastardization of proper house music.

What’s more, it makes for a perfect means of promoting Claptone’s first album. With its official release slated for October 16th, Charmer will feature a much broader range of collaborators such as Nathan Nicholson of The Boxer Rebellion, Jimi Tenor, Young Galaxy, Jay-Jay Johanson and »

PlayStation Plus Vote To Play Feature Will Reportedly Allow Players To Have Their Say On Monthly Line-Up

8 hours ago

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement, a new report has surfaced that suggests Sony is primed to roll out a new feature for the PlayStation Network that will allegedly allow fans to have a say on which titles make it onto the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection.

News comes via NeoGaf, where a handful of eagle-eyed users spotted the new polling system on the What’s New section of the PlayStation 4 interface. Considering that the August line-up is now out in the open, this feature will seemingly be implemented in the build-up to the September freebies, as PlayStation owners lobby for one new addition from a choice of three.

Before the listing was pulled – which essentially confirms Vote to Play is indeed authentic – the selection included Armello, Zombie Vikings, and Grow Home. As a matter of fact, Ubisoft’s latter platformer is yet to be confirmed for a console release, »

Wonder Woman Shoots In London This Fall

8 hours ago

Now that Patty Jenkins (Monster) has been secured for the director’s chair on Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ Wonder Woman stand-alone, the studios are moving fast to keep star Gal Gadot in her Amazonian body armor and get cameras rolling on the monumental superhero blockbuster.

According to Empire, which just ran a cover story focusing on next year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, there are currently a ton of moving parts with regard to the blossoming WB/DC Cinematic Universe. An excerpt from the story reads:

Logistically it is staggering. As Batman V Superman gains its coat of special effects, and the various stages of editing, scoring, grading and sound mixing are completed, Deborah Snyder, along with Roven is watching over a sandbox that stretches around the world. Jenkins is in London prepping Wonder Woman, which will shoot there this autumn.

Matt Damon Is A Long Way From Home In New The Martian Screenshots

9 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

Seeing Matt Damon in an astronaut suit may evoke bad memories for Interstellar fans, but forget Dr. Mann, for in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-tipped space oddity The Martian, the actor is playing an intrepid explorer cast astray on the Red Planet.

With no option but to “science the shit” out of his surrounding supplies, Damon’s lone astronaut is forced to carry out a mini-terraforming mission, growing food on a hostile environment that is designed for anything but. First off, his Mark Watney will be forced to send out an Sos signal from the sun-scorched planet, before hunkering down for a gruelling 4 years as the Ares 3 crew return for the man they left behind.

Lifted from the pages of Andy Weir’s eponymous best-seller, there’s already tremendous amount of buzz surrounding The Martian following its spine-chilling first trailer. With a cast that includes Jessica Chastain, »

Room Is Set For Tiff Screening Before General Release

15 hours ago

The film adaptation of the 2010 award-winning novel Room is confirmed for screening at the Toronto Film Festival in September, ahead of a nationwide release. Scheduling the movie for what is traditionally held to be the window for awards contenders suggests a high degree of confidence in the film, which stars Brie Larson as a young mother raising and protecting her son in the most extreme of circumstances.

Ostensibly about the extraordinary bond between mother and child, Room is told from the perspective of five year old Jack, who lives in a tiny, windowless space with Ma. The windowless space is the sum total of Jack’s experience. He has no perception of the outside world, and Ma spends every waking moment trying to give him a fulfilling and interesting life with limited resources. She provides scheduled activities, as much education as she can, and a strict hygiene regime to ensure their continued health. »

New X-Men: Apocalypse Stills Show Off The Titular Villain

21 hours ago

Along with pulling back the curtain on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice with some new stills and a ton of new information, the latest issue of Empire Magazine is also shedding some light on another highly-anticipated superhero flick: X-Men: Apocalypse.

Other than the leaked Comic-Con trailer, which can be viewed above, we haven’t really seen or heard too much about the upcoming sequel, so it’s nice to see it finally getting a bit of time in the spotlight.

Through a gallery of low-res images (the high-res versions will likely appear online shortly), seen below, we get a glimpse at the film’s titular villain as well as some of the supporting cast. The quality isn’t great, but we’ll take what we can get.

In addition to the images, Empire also sat down with director Bryan Singer for an interview, who revealed »

Vacation Review

21 hours ago

Vacation – another discombobulated assortment of immaturity, nostalgic pandering and weightless storytelling. The slow death of mainstream comedy, if you will. Every stupid graffitied phallus and perverse lake of shit is calculated with the cheapest of intentions, because juvenile potty humor seems to have become an underwhelming norm across comedy’s repetitive landscape. John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein promise early on that their unwarranted reboot will stand completely on its own (through yet Another meta-laced conversation), but their efforts are less convincing than Randy Quaid’s fake sex tape. Why? Because No Vacation movie has treated its audience with this little respect. And Vegas Vacation is nothing to brag about, I might add.

In this year’s vacation-from-hell comedy, Rusty Griswold has transformed from a tall, lanky nutcase (played most recently by Ethan Embry) to his All-American-Joe fate as an economy airline pilot (played now by Ed Helms »

Empire Releases Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Photos In High-Res

29 July 2015 5:43 PM, PDT

It’s been an exciting couple of weeks for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice fans, that’s for sure. It all started back at Comic-Con, with the reveal of a thrilling new trailer that pitted the two heroes against each other in epic fashion. Then came the impressive IMAX trailer (seen above), which was followed by Empire’s massive cover story on the film.

Now, to cap it all off, the UK magazine has released their exclusive stills in high-res. We’ve already seen these images, as they landed online earlier today in a low-res state, but now we’ve got the clear and crisp versions to feast our eyes on, and boy do they look good.

Review Season 2 Review

29 July 2015 4:35 PM, PDT

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Cable has treated writers, directors, and actors kindly for a good long time now, but in terms of volume, no group may have benefited more from the shift toward small-scale television than comedians. From Lucy, to Cosby, to Seinfeld, having your own show used to mean committing half of your year to a network’s schedule. Now, bite-sized season orders and fracturing markets mean that the spoils of cable can be shared by more comedic voices than ever. Comedy Central’s Review was one of last year’s best, laugh-out-loud funniest surprises, and Thursday’s premiere gives little reason to expect anything less than an equally hysterical Season 2.

The secret to Review’s success (which also helps distinguish the show from the Australian series on which it is based) is that it’s the purest delivery system for the mad genius of comedian Andy Daly. »

Looking For Alaska Shortlist Grows To Include Bates Motel, Mad Max, Unbroken Stars

29 July 2015 1:48 PM, PDT

With Paper Towns performing admirably in theaters, it’s full steam ahead for John Green adaptation Looking for Alaska. Paramount and director Rebecca Thomas are continuing to test young actors and actresses for the lead roles of Miles Halter, Alaska Young and Colonel, and today brings word that the previously announced shortlist for contending actors has grown to include some big names.

Bates Motel‘s Nicola Peltz, who had a key role in Transformers: Age of Extinction, has entered the fray alongside Mad Max: Fury Road actress Courtney Eaton, according to TheWrap. Both (pictured above) are testing for the coveted part of Alaska, a mysterious boarding school student whose enigmatic nature and stunning looks transfix new student Miles.

Peltz and Eaton are duking it out with the previously announced Imogen Waterhouse (a model making the leap to cinema with next year’s The Last Photograph) and Anya Taylor-Joy, who is »

Jake Gyllenhaal Eyeing Boston Marathon Pic Stronger

29 July 2015 1:20 PM, PDT

As is the Hollywood way, whenever a story grips the nation, a bunch of different projects launch headfirst into development, hoping to capitalize on the media craze. Such is the case with the Boston Marathon Bombing, which will feature into three or more different movies housed all over town.

One in particular, though, titled Stronger, is taking some big steps forward. David Gordon Green is in negotiations to direct the inspirational drama, and today brings word that Jake Gyllenhaal, still bathing in critical acclaim after his performance as a down-and-out boxer in Southpaw, is looking at taking on the lead role.

Gyllenhaal would play Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs in the attack while waiting at the finish line of the annual marathon for his girlfriend to finish competing. Bauman was caught in the blast when two pressure cooker bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring hundreds more. »

Dying Light: The Following Is A Large, Open Expansion

29 July 2015 1:07 PM, PDT

Last week, Techland released a media-only teaser for its upcoming and unannounced Dying Light expansion. Of course, despite warnings that it wasn’t to be published, the trailer still found its way onto the open Internet and created some buzz.

Now, several days later, we have official information to share with you, including the expansion’s name and a quote from its developers. That, as well as a couple of 4K screenshots, which look incredibly badass.

Dubbed Dying Light: The Following, the awkwardly titled expansion will not only introduce open plains, but drivable buggies as well. And, being that this is a zombie game through and through, it’s exciting to think of what adding vehicles to the formula will do. That’s especially true when it comes to nighttime, which has always been a big part of the Dying Light experience, as the game’s »
