Denis Villeneuve on the pressures of directing Blade Runner 2049

It’s not really an enviable task, taking on one of the best sci-fi movies of all time, but that’s what filmmaker Denis Villeneuve chose to do when he signed on to direct the upcoming Blade Runner 2049.

The film will be released in cinemas later this year, but the talented French-Canadian director has been speaking to Heat Vision on the pressures of directing a follow-up to such a classic.

Speaking to the trade at CineEurope, Villeneuve said: “Ryan Gosling and I made peace with the idea that the chances of success were very narrow. I came on board because the script was very strong. But no matter what you do, no matter how good what you’re doing is, the film will always be compared to the first, which is a masterpiece. So I made peace with that. And when you make piece with that you are free.”

The filmmaker, whose last film Arrival wowed audiences and critics alike continued:

“To take Ridley Scott’s universe and try to make it my own was a really big task for me. [Scott gave me the] biggest gift of all, which is freedom. He said, it’s your movie. I’ll be there if you need me, otherwise I’ll be away, and I must say he was not there physically, but I felt his presence all the time, because I was dealing with his universe all the time. So in a way he wasn’t there, but he was there a lot at the same time.”

Blade Runner 2049 is scheduled to arrive in cinemas across the world in October, and we’re hoping to find it pop up at the likes of Tiff in September, and maybe even the Venice Film Festival just prior.

In the film, Harrison Ford returns as Rick Deckard, along with the likes of Gosling, Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Dave Bautista and Robin Wright. The date for your diaries is October 7th.

Vision and Scarlet Witch spotted on the set of Avengers: Infinity War

The cast for the next Avengers movie seems to be unfathomably big. Asinine is a word that comes to mind, but with the gravitas of events, and the threat of our heroes opponent in Thanos, it seems probable that every guy and his dog will be needed to win the day.

So perhaps it’s not particularly surprising to hear that former Tony Stark AI turned bad-ass superhero Vision is involved in the movie, his appearance in Infinity War being confirmed by photos from the Edinburgh set of the film, as has that of Scarlet Witch:

Aardman talks next film 'Early Man', a new TV series and Vr

Aardman talks next film 'Early Man', a new TV series and Vr
Aardman talked to Screen in Annecy about future projects - including the Eddie Redmayne-voiced Early Man - BFI support and learning curves.

Aardman Animations is the most successful animation company in British film history; its films have generated worldwide box office revenue of close to $1 billion and it is a cherished international brand.

Despite its global success, however, Aardman still considers itself to be a niche player in the ultra competitive Us animation market.

The contrast was acknowledged by Aardman founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton in an interview with Screen at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival last week.

Sproxton and Lord were in Annecy to give a keynote address, Aardman At 40, and to collect a “personality of the year award” from the festival.

On Cap’s side one cover depicts Hawkeye, Winter Soldier, and Scarlet Witch, while the other shows Cap himself alongside buddy Falcon and Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man.

They’re all doing battle with Iron Man, Black Widow, and Iron Patriot (on the first cover for Iron Man’s side), and newcomer Black Panther and Vision on the second cover for Team Iron Man.

When one of the Bréfort sons, Ma Loute, and the mischievous, teenage Billie Van Peteghem fall in love, the lives of both families are shaken to the core.

Captain America: Civil War – 13 Big Questions From Super Bowl Spot

Marvel

Football! Beer! Chicken Wings!

All valid reasons to enjoy the Super Bowl, but from a film fan’s point of view, it’s all about the new spots for some of the year’s biggest movie’s. It’s prime real estate, so unsurprisingly we get a look at some pretty huge films; it’s basically like movie trailer Christmas.

2016 was no exception, with trailers for X-Men: Apocalypse, Independence Day: Resurgence, Jason Bourne, The Jungle Book, and, of course, Captain America: Civil War.

(Arguably) the biggest film of the year meeting the biggest sporting event of the year, this was a great example of how to build excitement without really giving anything away. Sure, fans who haven’t kept up with the promotional material might’ve been surprised at some of the team members – Black Panther and Vision on Team Iron Man; Ant-Man siding with Cap – but beyond that

Exclusive: Civil War Promo Art Reveals Captain America & Iron Man's Teams

Marvel have remained tight lipped concerning which Avengers will be siding with Captain America and which will be with Iron Man. And whilst there has been speculation concerning who's with who (with Jeremy Renner letting slip his allegiance) you can speculate no more! Below you can check out the video four images (one of which we've seen before) that place War Machine, Black Widow, Black Panther and Vision on team Stark with Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, Hawkeye, Ant-Man and the (surprise?) addition addition of Sharon Carter on team Cap. As of yet there's no word on the likes of Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch or even Bruce Banner (who's rumoured to be involved in the project) but it's definitely raised my anticipation for May of next year. But what are your thoughts on the confirmed sides and where do you think Spider-man's allegiance will lie? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

'Avengers 2' Vision Character Poster Is Finally Here
Vision comes into focus in a brand-new poster for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron! Having voiced J.A.R.V.I.S. in four films, Paul Bettany steps in front of the camera to portray the mysterious Vision. Marvel released a slew of character posters last month, featuring all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the villainous Ultron (James Spader), but Vision was nowhere to be found. We also got a glimpse of Vision on the Entertainment Weekly magazine covers that were released yesterday, but this poster gives us our first close-up look at the character.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the

Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer: what did we learn this time?

  • Den of Geek
The latest, and probably final, trailer for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron offered yet more clues. We take a deeper look...

Yesterday, Marvel released the final Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer before the film's release. And that means one last look at the interesting things the trailer has revealed. Everyone ready?

Inevitably, some spoilers for Avengers: Age Of Ultron lie ahead...

If You Build It

"I tried to create a suit of armor around the world," says Tony Stark, accompanied by footage of his trademark robotic arms assembling… something. It's pretty clear by this point that Ultron is the result of Tony Stark's attempt to come up with a way to protect the planet from another Chitauri-style invasion, but is this just one of the drones, or is it Ultron assembling himself?

Of course, the nature of Ultron means that there are going to be a lot of

Paul Bettany discusses his Vision for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

Paul Bettany discusses his Vision for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'
(Cbr) Paul Bettany's vision for The Vision is coming a little more into focus. The actor, who plays both the voice of Tony Stark's A.I. valet J.A.R.V.I.S and also the synthezoid superhero -- who may be one and the same -- hit San Diego Comic-Con International to join his "Avengers: Age of Ultron" co-stars on stage for the big Marvel Studios presentation -- but earlier in the day, he joined a select group of reporters for an intimate roundtable conversation about his still enigmatic new role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even before the questioning started, Bettany made it clear how tricky his answers were going to be as he tried to stay spoiler-protective. He made a quick check out the adjacent hotel window to gauge his safety. "Let me just look up -- oh, okay. I can't say anything!" he joked, pretending to spot a sniper.

Dr Who: films of Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy

Feature Alex Westthorp 16 Apr 2014 - 07:00

Alex's trek through the film roles of actors who've played the Doctor reaches Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy...

Read the previous part in this series, Doctor Who: the film careers of Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker, here.

In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.

Paul Bettany Upgrades to The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron

  • Cinelinx
Paul Bettany has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the very beginning, providing the voice of Jarvis, Tony Stark's AI companion.  Now it looks like he's getting an upgrade for The Avengers: Age of Ultron and will no longer simply be a voice over...but a brand new hero: The Vision.  

Production on the highly anticipated sequel is set to begin next month, and that means we're starting to hear more and more about who all will be involved.  The latest report sees the already large cast of heroes growing once again in that Paul Bettany will be playing the role of Vision.  Rumors of this started hitting last night thanks to The Daily Mail spotting Bettany and Jeremy Renner near Shepperton Studios doing make-up tests, but it was later confirmed by Variety that Jarvis will be turning into the Vision.

Vin Diesel Met With Marvel, Hints at The Avengers 2 Role

About two weeks ago, Vin Diesel revealed on his Facebook page that Marvel requested a meeting with him, claiming that he has no idea what the studio wanted to discuss. The actor has now updated his page again, stating that the meeting took place yesterday (July 9th). And while he once again refused to disclose any details, he also posted a photo of himself next to a cover of "The Avengers" comic book, which prominently features Giant-Man (pictured). In the past, Diesel has been rumored to star in "Daredevil" and "Black Panther." But last year, the actor posted an image of Vision on his Facebook page, hinting that he wants to play the character in "The Avengers 2." He quickly took down that image, but has now mentioned Vision again, stating: "I get tunnel vision with my work." It's possible that everything will be revealed during the San Diego Comic-Con later this month.
