10 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (July 12)

2 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s Saturday, so you know what that means! It’s time for the latest edition of the WhatCulture.com News Brief, where we bring you the hottest movie and television related news to hit the web over the last week. In the last installment I mentioned that the Hollywood news cycle was slowing down a bit… but that has seemingly changed this week, as we have a lot to talk about today!

These recaps tend to be a bit superhero and blockbuster heavy, but this week Tinseltown gave us a bit more to work with, creating a more evenly balanced array of news items to talk about. On one end of the spectrum we have updates on Ridley Scott’s next biblical epic, and the upcoming spin-off of The Conjuring (which gives me nightmares from the premise alone). Then we’ve got news about TV shows like True Detective, »

Hot Wheels R2-D2 Roadster

Hot Wheels just released a photo of their awesome looking Star Wars inspired R2-D2 roadster! They tagged the photo with #SDCC14 so I imagine you will be able to get one of these bad boys at Comic-Con later this month. Now I'm just going to sit back and wait for some crazy fan to build a life size version of this car with Lego bricks that actually runs. I know you're out there!  »

Star Wars: Episode VII Delay Rumors Pop Up Once Again

16 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Here we are again folks, after a lot of back and forth on rumors and even an official press release saying things were still on track for a December 2015 release, there's a chance that Star Wars: Episode VII could be pushed back to May 2016.  The reasons aren't exactly what you might think, however, and have more to do with studio politics than anything.  Come inside to check out the latest report and sound off with your thoughts. 

Over the weekend, you may have seen the announcement from Lucasfilm that two new cast members had joined Star Wars: Episode VIIOn top of that, they announced a 2-week hiatus of filming to re-schedule some things, but ultimately the film was on track for it's December release date.  This seemed to end the matter of the persistent rumors surrounding the film that the film would be delayed due to Harrison Ford's injury. »

Star Wars: May The 2016 Be With You?

17 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Wtf is this post? That's not how you spell Star Wars.  It's me, Da7e, basically a waste of carbon, because I spend all my time thinking about things I like and other people who like those things. This is my weekly column where I discuss news, rumors and happenings in the world of Star Wars

Spoilers? Usually, but not this week.

I thought this was all over two weeks ago, but maybe it isn't. 

Here’s a rumbling from the deep behind-the-scenes that I cannot confirm: Jj Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy aren’t done wrestling with Bob Iger to push Star Wars: Episode VII back into 2016 with Batman, Superman and Captain America.

I’ve only heard pieces of this from two sources and they don’t necessarily corroborate each other. Previously in this space, we discussed how Abrams and Kennedy wanted a May 2016 release date but Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, »

Why It Worked: Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

19 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There are a few science fiction franchises out there that are generally considered to be untouchable and above almost any reproach; classics, in every sense of the word. Never mind that some of them may have been diminished, watered down, or even ruined throughout the years, thanks to Hollywood's obsession with unnecessary spin-offs and prequels/sequels galore. But no matter how diluted certain franchises may have eventually become, the originals still manage to stick with us for any number of memorable reasons. Star Wars, Star Trek, the Alien franchise, Close Encounters, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, and E.T. are probably among the first sci/fi movies to jump to mind. But I believe there's a strong case to be made for Planet of the Apes.  This is probably one of the more underappreciated epics that has ever come out of this specific genre of movies.

Critical Mass: Hail, Caesar and 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'

19 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

There’s a lot at stake with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: human supremacy on a post-apocalyptic Earth, the well-being of a 45-year-old franchise property… the summer box office.

With ticket sales down across the board, Dawn finds itself in the once unlikely position of summer savior. The 2011 reboot, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which starred James Franco and Andy Serkis as the motion-capture Prometheus ape, Caesar, was a solid critical and popular hit, grossing $176.7 million.

Expectation are much higher for Dawn, which is set 10 years after the events of Rise. Humanity has been devastated by the simian flu, »

Star Wars Reveals Its Comic-Con Plans

20 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Deep down, in the backs of our minds, we held a sliver of hope that J.J. "Mystery Box" Abrams would bring a snippet of footage from Star Wars: Episode VII to San Diego Comic-Con, just to keep the intense heat of fan interest blazing on the wildly anticipated sequel. But reports have now surfaced that Star Wars (basically) is skipping Comic-Con once again, dashing the hopes of young Jedi everywhere. Deadline breaks the news that will break thousands of hearts, stating that "sources close to the production and at Comic-Con" have confirmed that Disney and LucasFilm have no plans to bring Star Wars: Episode VII to San Diego. There won.t be a complete absence of Star Wars content at the Con, however. Disney Xd will hold a panel for its animated Star Wars Rebels series on Thursday, July 24. That panel is expected to include executive producers Dave Filoni »

Hey You Geeks!! Podcast# 27: The Summer Blockbuster Enigma

21 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The big question of the week is; Why do overstuffed, critically panned films like Transformers: Age of Extinction continually break box-office records while great films like Snowpiercer are left to struggle with a limited release? Luckily, it turns out that Snowpiercer is about to break into a wider release, but will it bring financial success? We look back across the 1980’s and 90’s in search of a trend in summer box-office. Does conformity trump originality when it comes to tallying box-office receipts or is summer box-office an enigma with no definable trends to point to? We do our best to find an answer. After that, we discuss new comics, Disney World and more of the latest Star Wars news, including Kevin Smith’s set visit and the addition of Rian Johnson to the Sw team.  Give a listen, and don’t forget to share your reviews of Hey You Geeks on iTunes! »

Star Wars Rebels Gets New Posters, Sdcc Information, and Villain Details

21 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we have to wait another year before getting a new Star Wars movie, fans still have something to look forward to when Star Wars Rebels lands on televisions this Fall (as in just a few months).  As such, Disney/Lucasfilm are pushing the new animated series hard at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and have released a slew of information over the last couple days.  Come inside to see a new video introducing David Oyelowo as an Imperial villain, the full Sdcc Panel schedule for the show, and a swanky Rebels poster. 

While the wait for Star Wars: Episode VII seems insufferable (at least to some of us), we can take comfort in the knowledge that new Star Wars stories will be coming our way soon in the form of the Rebels TV series.  With the show set to debut in a few months, Disney is pushing their marketing »

Boyhood – A Glorious Gamble

11 July 2014 4:58 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Director’s pet projects are often described as a labour of love, but Richard Linklater’s new film Boyhood (released in both UK and Us cinemas today) is perhaps the most pertinent example of that phrase, having experienced an incredibly long birthing period in cinematic terms. Shot using the same actors (lead Ellar Coltrane makes the leap from ethereal 6 year old, awkward adolescent, and finally, insightful young adult with effortless ease) over a couple of weeks and spread over 12 consecutive years, this is filmmaking without a safety net.

Already laden with superlatives from those who have seen it (and justifiably so) it’s a bravura effort which gently compels you to reflect on your own life, and the staggeringly swift passage of time that seems to pass as you increase in age (the then-twelve year-old Coltrane reflecting on the best films of 2008 with screen father Ethan Hawke makes that year »

The Beautiful and the Damned Dirty Apes: A History of The Planet of The Apes

11 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Planet of The Apes movies occupy a curious netherworld of critical opinion. With each film, the budget was sawn in half, leading to a successive pattern of diminishing returns that led to a cheapening of its esteem. The spin-off TV show was quickly cancelled, further dulling the lustre and few people even remember the animated series that finally put the Apes to bed until a rude awakening in 2001.

However, for all their child-pleasing capers (the family-friendly G rating was a mandatory stipulation from the studios), the Apes movies deftly juggled important themes and arguments about slavery, free-will, nuclear war, vivisection, racism and oppression, and man’s innate capacity for cruelty. In pure storytelling terms, the circuitous plot links the first five movies (and the prequel Rise of The Planet of The Apes) into a pleasing, if relentlessly pessimistic, self-perpetuating full-circle.

Enormous box office successes in their early stages, they »

Extended TV spot for The Expendables 3

10 July 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lionsgate and Millennium Films has released an action-packed extended TV spot for the upcoming sequel The Expendables 3, which once again sees Sylvester Stallone leading a team of action icons as they go up against former Expendables Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mad Mel Gibson; take a look below after the official synopsis…

In The Expendables 3, Barney, Christmas and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks, who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest »

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes – The Review

10 July 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

One could argue the significance of the events that take place in The Empire Strikes Back. It’s widely considered the finest Star Wars film made to date but an argument could be made as to whether anything actually happens in the film. Yes, there is one major revelation that goes without saying, but isn’t the film merely just a stepping-stone to the next chapter? The film essentially is one long Saturday morning serial entry that practically ends with a voice-over announcing, “stay tuned next week Jedi; same Star time… same Star channel.” That feeling of seeing only the first part in a larger story can be said for the recent entry in the Apes reboot series. Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes leaves a lasting impression based on the impressive special effects, rich visual landscapes, and moving character interactions (kind of like the other entry in the »

Roberto Orci Talks Star Trek 3; Says Paramount Hasn’t Seen the Script Yet, Unconfirmed as Director Until Given the Greenlight

10 July 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Many were skeptical about director J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek reboot, but the finished film turned out to be the rare movie that seemed to please both die-hard fans and Trek newcomers in equal measure.  It was a thrilling start to a revitalized franchise for Paramount, and while reception to the follow-up Star Trek Into Darkness was less enthusiastic, the sequel still went on to gross $467 million worldwide.  Obviously Paramount would be moving forward with another installment, but Abrams happened to be busy with this little thing called Star Wars, so a new director was needed.  After months of searching, the studio finally settled on a familiar face: Roberto Orci.  Having produced and co-written the first two films, Orci was already entrenched in the existing franchise, but Star Trek 3 marks a massive challenge as it will be Orci’s first time in the director’s chair, ever.

Watch Neko Case Imagine Sci-Fi For Women With Ellie Kemper

10 July 2014 5:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Even with the news of exciting female casting in the new "Star Wars" movie, it's always refreshing to hear people complain about the historic dearth of good female roles in sci-fi movies. Here's Neko Case, her frequent collaborator Kelly Hogan, and "Office"/"Bridesmaids" alumna Ellie Kemper talking about droids, bots, and the like. The Leia hair with the "Star Trek" outfit is my favorite incendiary moment.  »

Andy Serkis Talks Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Deleted Scenes, Advances in Motion Capture, and How Early He Was Cast in Star Wars: Episode 7

10 July 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Let me be very clear: Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is one of the best films of the year and a huge step forward for what can be accomplished with motion capture technology, as Andy Serkis has again delivered one of the year's best performances.  Loaded with incredible performances all around and a great script, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the rare commercial movie that’s also deep and thoughtful.  Dawn is also atypical in that tells a complete story but also opens the door for another sequel.  As I said, Reeves has hit a massive home-run with this film and I truly hope audiences and critics embrace this special movie.  For more on the film, read Matt's review. At the San Francisco press day I landed a great video interview with Andy Serkis.  He talked about his reaction to the finished film, »
