The film finds Lex Luthor taking jealousy to new heights when fellow billionaire Bruce Wayne wins the Man of the Year Award. To top Wayne’s accomplishment, Lex begins a campaign for President – and to create the atmosphere for his type of fear-based politics, he recruits the Joker to perfect a Black Lego Destructor Ray.

Luc Besson's Sea At War May Land Now You See Me Director Louis Letterier Cannes is buzzing about Luc Besson's EuropaCorp project which Besson and Highlander star Christopher Lambert are producing. Variety reports that they have Letterier in talks to helm, but the plot's being kept under wraps on the project which is an adventure concerning mermaids, and being refered to as Mermaid by some familiar with the project. Letterier, director of Edward Norton starrer The Incredible Hulk, directed Summit Entertainment's upcoming crime thriller Now You See Me, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Mélanie Laurent. That film hits theaters on May 31st. »
Freddy Mercury and Queen once asked “who wants to live forever?” on the album A Kind of Magic (which is the unofficial soundtrack to Highlander) – and Russian billionaire Dmitry Itskov has apparently answered with "me." In something that feels like it came straight out of a sci-fi movie – which is fitting, since it was inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar – Itskov has revealed an ambitious plan to transplant human minds into holographic and nanotech bodies by the year 2045. And you thought the Tupac hologram performance was amazing… Billed as “The 2045 Initiative” and "The Avatar Project," Itskov’s movement hopes to bring about human immortality while creating a kind of utopia on Earth that changes...

You know that feeling where as soon as something ends, you want to watch it again with friends and family just to share it around? Or you envy others just because you wish you had a fresh mind to experience this special something again for the first time?
Well, John Dies at the End is that special something and if you’re anything like me and enjoy bizarre sci-fi horror-comedy, then you are going to absolutely love the heck out of this film.
John Dies at the End is based on the comic-horror novel by David Wong (a pseudonym for writer Jason Pargin) but I had not even heard of the novel so I had gone into this crazy and unfamiliar world absolutely blind.
Upon reflection, that is the best way to go into this flick, so I won’t bother to even try »
Even dead, Ilan Bodnar may be the NCIS team’s undoing in the season finale. Also on May 14, NCIS: Los Angeles‘ Callen “suits up” as part of what promises to be the spin-off’s darkest season ender ever.
In NCIS‘ Season 10 finale, “Damned If You Do,” the aftermath of the Bodnar manhunt turns into a federal witch hunt against Gibbs and his team, questioning their unconventional methods and threatening their future at the agency. Cue guest star John M. Jackson, »

With Fast & Furious 6 on the horizon, we revisit the entire series from beginning to end, and dig out our favourite moments...
It's strange to think that it's well over a decade since the Fast franchise began. But like a juggernaut rolling down a hill, this ageing series shows no sign of slowing down; in fact, this year's Fast & Furious 6 will be joined by yet another sequel, Fast Seven, due out in cinemas next year.
But given that the Fast movies now have such a long history, with various stars fading in and out of them as the past decade has rolled on, perhaps it's a good time to look back at how the series has evolved, and work out how its events will lead up to Fast & Furious 6...

The first Fast movie is something of a Frankenstein’s monster of a movie. »
Tonight at 9/8c, CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles launches into the final three episodes of Season 4, opening with an hour that pits Callen against Hetty, then lightening things up by ruffling Kensi’s feathers, and closing the season with events that Shane Brennan can’t use the word “dark” often enough to describe. Here, the showrunner previews all that’s to come.

Even as Ang Lee's Life of Pi (2012, Fox, PG) picked up Oscars for direction, cinematography, music and, crucially, visual effects, there was disgruntlement among the VFX effects team that their work on the movie had not been sufficiently recognised. Certainly, the digital wizardry is extraordinary, making the audience believe that they have been cast adrift on an endless ocean with a man-eating tiger, putting us right there in the lifeboat with the story's titular hero. All the more tragic, then, that Rhythm & Hues, which provided so much of the film's computer graphic magic, had filed for bankruptcy just before the Oscars, the latest victim of a downward spiral that had seen VFX artists become the most important but least valued craftspeople in Hollywood.
The irony, of course, is that visual effects are often at their best when unnoticed, and the real triumph of Life of Pi »

Ausiello: The May 14 finale will be a veritable Big Badapalooza. “It’s like a supervillains episode,” teases Barrett Foa. “Basically, every bad guy we’ve ever done battle with [is] coming back for the finale.” The returning evildoers include traitorous CIA vet Isaak Sidorov (played by Sons of Anarchy‘s Timothy V. Murphy) and “The Chameleon” (Highlander‘s Christopher Lambert). “Big nuclear things are going down,” the actor adds. “It leaves you »

He’s one of cinemas most intense performers and one of my all-time favourite movie icons, but Oscar-winner Christopher Walken has more in his locker than a menacing thousand-yard stare and gravity-defying hair-do. This week sees the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Martin McDonagh’s brilliant black comedy, Seven Psychopaths, in which Walken steals the show from under the nose of Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson, as a loveable dog-napping petty crook, devoted pal and husband.
Over his 60 year career, which currently features over 12o credits, he’s featured in superhero blockbuster Batman Returns, gothic horror Sleepy Hollow; taken on suave British super spy 007 in A View To A Kill; chased rodents and marsupials in family favourites, Mousehunt and Kangaroo Jack, and tripped the light fantastic in Fatboy Slim’s memorable music video for Weapon Of Choice. Now Thn has picked out some of our favourite, and »

Teen Wolf is back on our radar, and you know what that means: it’s time for me to once again start harassing those of you who have not yet given the show a try, and once again tell you that it has really nothing to do with the 1980s Michael J. Fox movie, beyond a couple of the names and the fact that the main character is a high school student who becomes a werewolf.
It’s actually on my very limited A list, because the cast chemistry is out of the park, the stories are twisty, and the pace is fast. Plus, everyone is gorgeous, in a but-they-don’t-flaunt-it sort of way. It isn’t whiny at all, and is a perfect summer watch. Okay, maybe this will help some of you:
How about now? And yes, the girls are just as charmingly attractive. Here’s the latest »

I’ve always been of the opinion that Stuart Gordon’s futuristic prison flick Fortress doesn’t get enough love. Not a perfect movie by any means, but one I’ll be more than happy to add to my Blu-ray collection and hope you will too, lest I be forced to activate the Intestinator.
Stuart Gordon followed-up Re-Animator, From Beyond, Dolls, and Robot Jox by stepping into Paul Verhoeven territory with this violent 1992 sci-fi thriller starring Highlander Christopher Lambert and Loryn Locklin as a husband and (pregnant) wife arrested for violating the population control policies of the dystopian future; their punishment being a life sentence in a corporate-controlled, state-of-the-art, supermax prison.
Robocop villain and “That 70’s Show” dad Kurtwood Smith plays the authoritarian prison warden who takes an unhealthy obsession on Lambert’s wife. Mohawked Road Warrior bad guy Vernon Wells and Re-Animator himself, Jeffrey Combs, co-star as fellow inmates. »
