Margot Robbie Held Her Breath For 5 Minutes In Suicide Squad

1 hour ago

With Suicide Squad about to make its bow in theatres, the cast and crew have been doing the press rounds this week, giving interviews and revealing some fun facts along the way. The latest bit of trivia comes from Margot Robbie, who of course plays Harley Quinn in the David Ayer-directed film.

While making an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actress spoke a bit about her role in the DC Comics adaptation and specifically, told Jimmy about an underwater scene that she had to film. Though she wouldn’t give us any details about what exactly the scene involved or how it factors into the plot, she did mention that she learned how to hold her breath for up to 5 minutes in preparation for it.

Metrico+ Arrives On Consoles & PC Next Month

1 hour ago

It’s been eight months since Dutch indie game developer Digital Dreams has talked about Metrico+, the console version of their debut puzzle game, but now they’re ready to share plenty of information, including a release date. The enhanced port of the former PlayStation Vita exclusive, which is coming to PC, Xbox One and PS4, will release August 23. This was announced by the studio on the PlayStation Blog, and they went to Twitter shortly afterwards to confirm details for additional platforms.

As the title indicates, Metrico+ isn’t just a port, and it’s been priced accordingly. The abstract puzzle game will cost $13.99 on all three platforms, although PlayStation owners will be eligible for a discount. Those that own the original game for Vita will be able to buy the updated version for $6.99 instead.

True Detective “Not Dead” At HBO – But Don’t Expect Season 3 Anytime Soon

5 hours ago

Oh, True Detective. Sweet, sweet True Detective. When you first appeared in 2014, full of dark poetry and Matthew McConaughney, we were smitten. Nomination after nomination fell into your lap, after that beautiful first year of sky-high ratings and critical thinkpieces. The world was your oyster. Then came season 2 – and we were all just left wondering, what happened? Your aesthetic was scattered, your acting spotty, your story was – well, the less we say about that the better.

And so it is that what was once one of the most acclaimed series on the small screen, being hailed as the future of dramatic programming, ended up in a bizarre creative limbo after just two seasons. And according to HBO programming president Casey Bloys, it might stay there a while.

“I’m not sure we have the right take for a third season right now,” he said, despite reaffirming that “it’s not dead. »

The Mummy Cast Photo Finds Tom Cruise In Namibia

7 hours ago

There’s a surprising amount riding on Universal’s reboot of The Mummy, a consequence of the potentially never-ending shared-universe craze Hollywood has locked itself into. A reintroduction to the iconic movie villain, the blockbuster will also set up a world that can comfortably fit all manner of other famed monsters, from the Creature from the Black Lagoon to the Invisible Man.

Luckily, the actors in tow for this pic, to be directed by Alex Kurtzman, seem to be having a blast despite the pressure. A new photo tweeted from lead actress Annabelle Wallis’  account finds her alongside Tom Cruise, Jake Johnson and Courtney B. Vance, all of whom are taking on lead roles in the film opposite Sofia Boutella’s wrapped menace. All of them are clad in fatigues while on set in Namibia, Africa, a handy reminder that the movie is taking a more grounded, modern approach to its oft-campy subject. »

Game Of Thrones Will End After Season 8

One of television’s biggest dramas is entering its final stretch. Speaking to the Television Critics’ Association earlier today, HBO’s Casey Bloys confirmed that Game of Thrones will end after its planned eighth season – though there’s, as one might expect given the size of the show, a lingering possibility of spinoffs.

It had previously been announced that the upcoming seventh season of the series would only comprise seven episodes, which fueled rumors that HBO was plotting a Breaking Bad-esque conclusion to the highly acclaimed fantasy, splitting one final fight to the finish over two shorter seasons. Turns out, there was truth to that – though Bloys also noted that he’s not certain of the episode count for the eighth season.

“The exact number for the seventh season is locked at seven,” Bloys said. “For »

The 10 Best U.S Presidents In Cinema

8 hours ago

Now that the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National Convention have both taken place, the final leg of the race to The White House has begun. As a result of those political party events, we know that the world will wake up on November 9th, 2016 to the news that the United States of America has elected either a beauty-pageant-judging businessman, or the first U.S woman, to be the next ‘Leader Of The Free World.’

Whichever way that particular cookie crumbles, it will be a globally historic moment. Gender politics and toxic campaign smears aside, by January 2017, the most powerful nation on the planet will be run by either the single most qualified person, or a person that isn’t really qualified at all. In those terms, the world stands on a precipice, and the winds of change are approaching.

The Oval Office has always been fertile ground for »

Jared Leto Shares Two New Suicide Squad Photos

9 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

With the release of Suicide Squad right around the corner now, all eyes are focused firmly on the upcoming DC Comics adaptation. In fact, at this point, it might just be one of the most anticipated films of the year, and for good reason. From being a villain-centric flick (which is something we haven’t really seen yet with comic book movies) to Jared Leto’s haunting new take on the Joker, there’s a lot to be intrigued about here.

Now, with the marketing push just about done, we’ve got two new-ish images to share with you as well as yet another TV spot.

The photos, which can be seen above, might look familiar. The first is a variation on a shot that we’ve already seen of the Joker and Harley, though it appears that the characters are getting a bit closer in this image. »

Got ‘Em! Flatliners Remake Is Actually A Sequel

13 hours ago

File this one under “news nobody saw coming… because no one was exactly looking.” There’s been buzz since 2011 about a remake of the sci-fi cult hit Flatliners, but things became more solidified in recent months as a cast popped up around the project, including original star Kiefer Sutherland.

His involvement seemed to indicate that the remake might carry on from the events of the first pic – which would in fact make it a sequel (or at the very least a requel, if you hate yourself enough to engage in that level of Hollywood jargon) – but it wasn’t until earlier this week that Flatliners was unveiled as a full-on sequel.

During an interview with Metro, Sutherland couldn’t help but spoil his real role in the follow-up, saying:

“I play a professor at the medical university. It is never stated but it will probably be very clearly understood that »

Frank Marshall Talks Jurassic World 2 “Pressure”

13 hours ago

No one was expecting Jurassic World to enter the box office with a whimper, but it came as a surprise to pretty much everyone – including producer Frank Marshall, as revealed during a recent press interview for Jason Bourne – when it roared into theaters so loudly that it became not only the second-highest grossing movie of last year but the fourth biggest of all time.

“No, I wasn’t [prepared for the numbers],” Marshall said. “That’s the honest truth. I was hoping to open at 100, they were projecting 100 which is huge, and that would’ve be the biggest opening for a movie that I’ve produced, but we pretty much doubled my expectations [Laughs] at every turn.”

With all those zeroes attached to the movie’s total haul, it’s not that shocking that Universal is eagerly moving forward with a sequel, currently just known as Jurassic World 2. According to Marshall, director Juan Antonio Bayona »

Netflix’s Flaked Renewed For Season 2

13 hours ago

Despite its paltry reviews and failure to register with mainstream audiences, Flaked is getting another season on Netflix, the streaming service confirmed on social media.

Posting on Flaked‘s official Facebook page, Netflix wrote, “We’re headed back to Venice for #Flaked Season 2. Can we stay in your guest house?” A return date for the second season was listed simply as 2017.

The series, set in the insular California city of Venice, follows Chip (Arnett) as he struggles with the deterioration of his image and sobriety even while falling for the beautiful London (Ruth Kearney) despite the rift this creates between him and his best friend, Dennis (David Sullivan).

It’s been well-established that Netflix doesn’t exactly operate by typical cable-network laws. Its pricey historical epic Marco Polo was far from the Game of Thrones-style smash that the streaming service had clearly hoped it would be, yet it was »

Tyler Hoechlin Spotted On The Set Of Supergirl Season 2 Suited Up As Superman

29 July 2016 6:33 PM, PDT

See Full Gallery Here

Yesterday, The CW released a first look at Tyler Hoechlin suited up as the Man of Steel in Supergirl season two. The response was a little mixed, with many fans praising the costume, but equally as many pointing out that the Teen Wolf alum looked a little too skinny to play the iconic DC Comics superhero.

Now, a new batch of photos from the Vancouver set have surfaced, and as you can see in the gallery above, Hoechlin most definitely looks the part. For whatever reason, that official image just didn’t do the actor justice, and while he’s still a long way off from being as jacked as Henry Cavill, that’s still Superman alright.

Avengers 3 Gets An Official Title, But Infinity War – Part II Is Now “Untitled”

29 July 2016 6:14 PM, PDT

When Marvel Studios announced their Phase 3 slate some time ago, the main event was quite clearly Avengers: Infinity War – Part I and Avengers: Infinity War – Part II. Since then, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have made it clear that the epic sounding movies aren’t actually going to be one big story which will play out over two separate instalments.

Still, they’re shooting them at the same time, so some connectivity seems highly likely, especially as it’s thought that they’ll both revolve around Earth’s Mightiest Heroes taking on Thanos. After confirming earlier this year that the films were going to be retitled though, that’s now appear to have happened, and it really does seem like they will be individual movies.

Suicide Squad Cast Member Weighs In On Recently Spoiled Justice League Cameo

29 July 2016 5:46 PM, PDT

We recently learned that Justice League star Ezra Miller appears in Suicide Squad as The Flash. Fans had been theorzing that this would be the case after closely examining scenes in the movie’s Comic-Con trailer, but an official cast list confirmed it, and now Jai Courtney has weighed in on Captain Boomerang’s scene with the Scarlet Speedster.

All we know for sure is that it features the hero apprehending the Task Force X member during a bank robbery, but it turns out that the actor never even met Miller. In fact, he had no idea when he shot this sequence that The Flash would eventually be added:

“I didn’t know he was in the movie until I saw the movie! True! It’s funny, because I look back on it and think, ‘ya f***in’ moron, of course that’s what was happening!’ But even shooting that »

5 Actors Who Almost Played Jason Bourne

29 July 2016 5:03 PM, PDT

After a nearly 10 year hiatus, Matt Damon is back in action as Robert Ludlum’s iconic spy in Jason Bourne, the new film from director Paul Greengrass that sees him reunite with the actor in an attempt to steer the franchise back on track after the middling spinoff The Bourne Legacy.

So far, reviews haven’t been terribly positive for the new flick, with our very own Matt Donato saying the following:

Jason Bourne packs a punch, but it’s softened by dizzying camera work and an expected story that loses what made the franchise so thrilling from the start.

Still, both Damon and Greengrass have built enough goodwill due to their fantastic work with the series and at this point, we’re willing to overlook the shortcomings here. And while Damon is as strong as ever in the role, it’s still interesting to think about how things would »

Suicide Squad Director Reveals Which DC Villain Didn’t Make The Cut

29 July 2016 4:09 PM, PDT

Ferocious DC supervillain King Shark has been menacing The Flash and his pals on the small screen recently, but there was a time when the character was rumored to make an appearance in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. A mainstay of the team in most incarnations of the comic, it was generally assumed that he’d at least make some sort of cameo in the Warner Bros. film.

Well, it turns out he very nearly did – and was actually considered as a card carrying member of Task Force X.

During a Twitter Q&A, Ayer revealed that at one point he was thinking about adding the monstrous baddie to the Squad, but decided against it due to budgetary concerns.

One of the characters I was thinking about for the squad line-up was King Shark, but we realised it would take a lot of work – a lot of CG work. We »

Indignation Review

29 July 2016 4:08 PM, PDT

What James Schamus brings to the table as a first-time director is a wealth of on-set and behind-the-scenes movie knowledge, accrued over years as a respected, prolific producer. It comes as no surprise, then, that his debut feature, Indignation, is a meticulously constructed, well-acted, absorbing period drama that will have audiences crossing their fingers in hopes that Mr. Schamus sticks around at his new day job.

The spark of the story is a fascinating idea about teeny-tiny life decisions having enormous effects on one’s fate. Posing and proving the theory is Marcus Messner, a gifted student living in 1950s Newark, NJ whose immediate mission in life is to get into a good college to avoid the draft (several of his childhood friends have died in the Korean War, a fate Marcus is hellbent on avoiding). A wave of relief hits him when he gets into the conservative Winesburg College »

According To Stephen Lang, It’s Unlikely He’ll Play Cable In Deadpool 2

29 July 2016 3:11 PM, PDT

The sequel to this year’s biggest super(anti)hero movie is currently in the scripting stages. Deadpool 2 was greenlit faster than you can say “chimichangas!” with original scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick bashing out drafts, ready for returning director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds. All of the elements which made the first flick so. much. fun are in place, leaving the matter of newcomers up in the air.

We know that Deadpool’s long-term comic book frenemy Cable will appear, as the mouthy mercenary himself confirmed it in the post-credits scene, but who’s going to play him? Well, it looks as if we can rule out Stephen Lang from the list of hopefuls.

Tallulah Review

29 July 2016 2:53 PM, PDT

In the last year, Netflix has expanded its focus on original programming from acclaimed series like House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black and Daredevil into full-length feature films. From the harrowing drama of Beasts of No Nation to the throwback silliness of Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, the streaming service has demonstrated an eye for material with a built-in appeal to a broad spectrum of audiences, even if some have balked at their eagerness to enter a multi-picture deal with Adam Sandler. Luckily, Tallulah is perhaps one of the more well-received Netflix original films to date.

Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page stars as the title character, a vagabond who chooses to live out of her van on an indefinite cross-country road trip. However, when her boyfriend (Evan Jonigkeit) leaves her side, a chain of events is set in motion that sees Tallulah developing ties with both an abandoned toddler and »

Suicide Squad’s Jai Courtney Was Just Joking About Taking Drugs And Self-Harming For The Role

Cast your minds back. All the way back to yesterday, when Suicide Squad‘s Jai Courtney revealed in an interview with Empire Magazine that he, like co-star Jared Leto, engaged in some unorthodox preparations for his role. He wasn’t alone in trying to match Leto’s craziness; director David Ayer apparently made the cast hit each other and amateur skin artist Margot Robbie gave the cast and crew tattoos.

Well, it turns out that Courtney was just having a laugh.

Business Insider caught up with the Aussie actor after his story of taking shrooms and extinguishing lit cigarettes on his skin understandably got everyone’s attention. The story took off, and many sites – us included – ran with it. As it happens though, Courtney was being sarcastic and, as everyone who’s ever tried to be deadpan over text can relate, »
