Everything Hugh Jackman looks like now

9 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Hugh Jackman looks crazy.

The actor is currently playing Blackbeard in next year’s Peter Pan prequel Pan. Yup—everything in that last sentence proves that we’re living in the hilarious dystopia our greatest science-fiction writers warned us about. But don’t despair, because Jackman isn’t just playing Blackbeard: He’s also rocking a very distinctive Blackbeard look–bald head, elaborate beard–and he’s rocking it in public, mostly in the stands at Wimbledon. Here’s everything Hugh Jackman looks like now:

Walter White, Heisenberg Form.

Max Von Sydow as Ming the Merciless in Flash Gordon.

It’s the Music That Makes the Man: Top 10 Movie Themes for Action-Packed Guys in Film

19 June 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Every movie has to have its signature song and that certainly goes for the action-oriented males in film that are fortunate to have these finger-snapping tunes represent them on the big screen. The movie theme song indulges the audience and delivers a whole new kind of intrigue and feeling that we invest in the roguish ruffians on the big screen that some men would like to emulate and the ladies would love to cozy up to intimately.

There are music selections that do bring to mind the euphoria of the male action-packed characters we regard highly despite their moral compass. Maybe one can get excitable when hearing Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” tune for the Marvel Comics superhero of the same name? Perhaps any of the musical themes for the countless James Bond films tickle your fancy? (there are two included in this article incidentally). Your preference might be in »

The Top Ten Bald Baddies of the Big Screen

5 June 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is always fun recalling the hair-raising scheming of bald bad guys in cinema. These hairless hooligans make for entertaining film fiends that take being naughty on the big screen to a whole new level of devilish delight. Whenever chaos and corruption is in the mix one can count on these balding bad apples to take it to the level of insanity. Now granted that there are other Bald Baddies of the Big Screen that are just as worthy as making anyone’s top ten list besides the selections that being profiled in this column. In any event, let’s just take a gander at the follicle-challenged foes in this serving of badness and baldness, shall we?

Here are The Top Ten Bald Baddies of the Big Screen (in alphabetical order):

1.) Ernst Stavro Blofeld from You Only Live Twice (1967)

Photo: MacFarlane Reveals Big Cameo In "West"

23 May 2014 1:24 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It was originally planned as a surprise, but the both an overzealous trailer cutting department and subsequent blabber all over social media and movie blogs spoiled it. So, director Seth MacFarlane has decided to post a photo confirming one of the big cameos in his upcoming Western comedy "A Million Ways to Die in the West".

The new set photo shows Christopher Lloyd reprising his role of Doc Emmett Brown, specifically the version seen in the 1990 sequel "Back To The Future Part III". Will he figure into as much of the storyline as Flash Gordon's Sam J. Jones did in "Ted"?

Star Wars Episode 7: Everything you need to know

16 May 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hover over the image above to see who's who in Star Wars: Episode VII

The curtain has been lifted just a tad on Star Wars: Episode VII with the unveiling of the cast for Jj Abrams's continuation of the space saga. We're more than 18 months from heading back to a galaxy far, far away, but there's still plenty of information floating in the ether about this hotly-anticipated sequel. Here's everything you need to know...

Jj Abrams is working with some trusted hands behind the camera

When George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney at the tail end of 2012, he entrusted his company with Kathleen Kennedy, a producer whose work stretches right back to Steven Spielberg's golden run in the '80s. Kennedy has overseen the Indiana Jones movies, had a hand in the Back to the Future trilogy and classier fare like Schindler's List and Lincoln. If you're looking »

Star Wars Episode 7 cast: Where you know them from

30 April 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With the major cast of Jj Abrams's Star Wars: Episode VII confirmed at long last, the hyperactive rumour mill isn't likely to wind down so much as shift focus - who are these people playing? How many roles are still to be cast? How involved is George Lucas, exactly?

But in the meantime, let's take a look at the seven actors that have been confirmed. While many of them couldn't be described as unknowns, a few of them do fall squarely into the "that guy" category - you've seen them in a handful of movies, but you may not know their name.

Veteran Bergman Star, Coen Bros' Cast Members to Star in Sw: Episode VII

29 April 2014 6:25 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast announced (photo: ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast member Max von Sydow in ‘Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close’) Star Wars: Episode VII cast members have been announced. The world had been waiting with bated breath. Who will The Force be with? Well, not with humankind and its fellow Earth dwellers (apart from cockroaches and various types of worms) — if news reports about the eventual fate of the planet are accurate. But don’t despair. The End credits for Planet Earth should come after Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios (instead of former Star Wars film distributor 20th Century Fox) amass a few more billion dollars following the release of a whole array of new Star Wars sequels in the coming years. So, the announced (mostly European) Star Wars: Episode VII cast members are, to date, the following: Oscar Isaac (Sucker Punch, widely praised for his performance in Joel »

The Flash Gordon Reboot Is Officially Underway At 20th Century Fox

23 April 2014 4:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week we heard rumors that Star Trek 3 scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay were being eyed to pen the script for a Flash Gordon reboot, and today, that news has been confirmed. According to THR, 20th Century Fox will be the next studio to try and bring the space adventurer rocketing back to the big screen.

Producer John Davis (Chronicle, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) is overseeing the film, after spending more than a year securing the rights to the pulp comic-strip, while Bourne Ultimatum  scribe George Nolfi’s original script will now be written by Payne and McKay.

Created in 1934 by Alex RaymondFlash Gordon follows a Yale graduate who, along with the lovely Dale Arden, is kidnapped and taken into outer space by a mad scientist named Dr. Zarkov. They end up on the planet Mongo, and find themselves fighting against the tyrannical dictator, Ming the Merciless. »

Fox finally gets its hands on 'Flash Gordon'

23 April 2014 3:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Look out Ming the Merciles, because Fox has officially planted its flag on Mongo. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has finally nailed down the rights to a "Flash Gordon" film following a year of work by producer John Davis. The script will be written by "Star Trek 3" writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, based on a treatment by George Nolfi of "Bourne Ultimatum" fame. The broad strokes of the story are well-established by now (it has been 80 years after all): a half-mad scientist named Dr. Hans Zasrkov kidnaps handsome polo player (or, later, football player) Flash Gordon and his companion Dale Arden and takes them by rocket ship to the planet Mongo, where the villainous Ming has been hurling asteroids at Earth. Gordon adapts to the new world and quickly becomes Ming’s adversary. Created by famed cartoonist Alex Raymond to compete with "Buck Rogers »

"Flash Gordon" Returns To 'Mongo'

23 April 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, Twentieth Century Fox is looking to replace their coveted Lucasfilm "Star Wars" franchise, now in the hands of Disney, by securing screen rights to "Flash Gordon", the 1930's newspaper comics hero, that inspired the creation of "Star Wars" by George Lucas.

Producer John Davis is currently developing a new screenplay by J.D. Payne, Patrick McKay and George Nolfi.

Originally illustrated by Alex Raymond, "Flash Gordon" debuted January 7, 1934, inspired by the space adventures of "Buck Rogers".

'Flash Gordon', a polo player and Yale University graduate and his companions 'Dale Arden' and 'Dr. Hans Zarkov' start their journey together as Earth is bombarded by fiery meteors. Zarkov invents a rocket ship to locate their place of origin in outer space.

Half mad, Zarkov kidnaps Flash and Dale and the three travel to the planet 'Mongo', where they discover the meteors are weapons devised by 'Ming the Merciless', »

Flash Gordon Movie Picked up By Fox

23 April 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last week it was reported that Star Trek 3 scribes Jd Payne and Patrick McKay were hired to write a script for the long awaited Flash Gordon reboot. They have been shopping the project around to studios, and it looks like it has found a home. 

THR reports that Twentieth Century Fox has picked up the rights to the classic comic, and they will be moving forward with its development. 

I may not be a big fan of remakes, and I loved the original movie, but I've been wanting to see an updated version of Flash Gordon for a long time. With how far technology has come since the first one, this thing could be a spectacular looking sci-fi adventure. Hopefully Payne and McKay have what it takes to deliver a fun story and solid script.

Fox rebooting 'Flash Gordon with 'Star Trek 3' writers

23 April 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Eighty years ago, polo-playing Yalie Flash Gordon first appeared in his own comic strip in newspapers throughout the country. No one under the age of 20 understands half the words in that sentence, yet Flash Gordon endures. Originally created by Alex Raymond as a ’30s-era pulp hero, the character inspired the retroactively beloved 1980 film and, more recently, a shortlived sci-fi series. The strip itself ran through the mid-’00s (you can get a closer look at it here) — and he could be staging a return trip to the big screen: EW has confirmed the news, originally uncovered by The Hollywood Reporter, »

'Flash Gordon' Remake In The Works

23 April 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Flash Gordon is returning to the big screen. 20th Century Fox has secured the rights to the character. Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, who are currently writing Star Trek 3, will pen the script.

The rights were secured by John Davis, who's produced films like Chronicle and the upcoming Man from U.N.C.L.E. He's the one who hired George Nolfi to pen a treatment for Payne and McKay. There is no word yet on who'll be directing.

Created by Alex Raymond in 1934, Flash Gordon began life as a serialized comic strip, following the intergalactic adventures of the titular hero, his fellow adventurer and love interest, Dale Arden, and brilliant scientist Dr. Hans Zarkov. Together, the trio explore fantastic interplanetary locales like Mongo, home of the devilish Ming the Merciless.

Tremendously popular in the late 1930s as a trio of big screen serials, Flash Gordon has been seen »

Hey, Flash Gordon Fans, There’s a New Flash Gordon Movie in the Works

23 April 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

I don’t know anything about Flash Gordon. I believe there was a cheesy movie in 1980 starring some football player … or something. Above is a pic from that, uh, classic. Man, that looks like a fun movie. (If you’re 5 years old, anyway.) I do remember that the Syfy Channel had a Flash Gordon TV show not all that long ago. The show itself was pretty forgettable, but man, Gina Holden was ridiculously hot in it. She’s, uh, the one in purple in the banner pic below. I’m assuming the All-American blond was Flash Gordon. It looks like Twentieth Century Fox and producer John Davis plan on bringing the broad-shouldered savior of the universe back to the big screen. They’ve set writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay to pen the script, with the duo working from a treatment by “Bourne Identity” writer George Nolfi. Because obviously when you think “Flash Gordon, »

Fox Eyes 'Flash Gordon' Remake, Marshmallow 'Peeps' To Get Feature Film

23 April 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I know Mike Hodges' 1980 film Flash Gordon is considered to be a cult classic, but I am not a part of that cult. Telling the story of a polo player (the film changed him to a football player) who finds himself traveling to the planet Mongo to battle Ming the Merciless, Flash Gordon was created in 1934 by artist Alex Raymond and that first film adaptation was beyond campy to the point I found it hardly watchable. Now Fox is setting out to do what producer Neal Moritz couldn't about six years ago at Sony, which is take another stab at a feature film adaptation. THR reports Fox has secured the rights for a feature adaptation and has set Star Trek 3 scribes, J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, to write the screenplay based on a treatment written by George Nolfi (The Bourne Ultimatum). I have little expectation this will actually »

Fox Bringing 'Flash Gordon' Back To The Big Screen

23 April 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It should come as no surprise in this current age of tentpole filmmaking, where studios are hoarding every pre-existing property they can get their hands on, that we’d eventually get to a point past diminished returns, where it makes no sense to repackage a film/TV show/what have you for modern audiences since the property is so obscure or dated that most audiences won’t care or even fail to recognize it. Yet here we are, at a point were there are serious plans to bring back “Flash Gordon” to the big screen. THR reports 20th Century Fox has nabbed the rights to the original Alex Raymond-created pulpy science-fiction comic-strip series with “Star Trek 3” co-writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay set to write the hero’s newest silver-screen adventure based off a treatment from “The Adjustment Bureau” filmmaker George Nolfi. If you’re familiar with the hero’s name, »

Fox Set To Reboot "Flash Gordon"

23 April 2014 1:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It was rumored the other day and now its confirmed - 20th Century Fox has closed a deal to pick up the screen rights to pulp comic-strip "Flash Gordon".

The package deal includes John Davis ("Chronicle") as producer, and up-and-coming "Star Trek 3" scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay as the film's script writers.

George Nolfi ("The Bourne Ultimatum") reportedly penned the story treatment from which Payne and McKay will write the script.

"Flash Gordon" dates back to 1934, when it was created by famed comic strip artist Alex Raymond, and for decades after appeared in movie serials, animated fare, TV shows and a ultra camp 1980 feature helmed by Mike Hodges.
