First Clip For Jude Law’s Black Sea Is Brimming With Claustrophobic Paranoia

18 November 2014 10:36 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In hindsight, it’s been a long time since moviegoers have had a promising submarine film to look forward to. Back in the 90s and early 2000s, it seemed as though Hollywood studios took a shine to compressing a drama and/or thriller within a claustrophobic tin can at 800 feet, with the likes of The Hunt for Red October and Crimson Tide being the most notable examples.

In essence, these films were a by product of the resonating paranoia left over from the Cold War, but that doesn’t mean that the core framework — one built to ensure maximum tension at the murky depths of the ocean — couldn’t be wrapped around a more modern tale, and that’s exactly what Focus Features has done for its upcoming maritime adventure, Black Sea.

Starring Jude Law as a rogue submarine captain, the film will follow him and his ragtag crew as »

Scott Glenn cast as Stick in Marvel’s Daredevil

15 September 2014 10:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daredevil’s martial arts mentor Stick will be played by Scott Glenn

With Marvel’s Netflix-based Defenders universe not expected to materialise on-screen until next year, it’s nice to have some reassurance that the constituent shows are pushing ahead at a healthy pace.

Today, we’ve learnt that Stick, martial arts mentor to Daredevil, has been cast. Teaching The Man Without Fear to punch, kick and other important things will be veteran screen actor Scott Glenn.

It’s likely you’ll recognise Glenn from somewhere. In a prolific career spanning back to the 1970s he’s played Lieutenant Colby in Apocalypse Now, Jack Crawford in The Silence Of The Lambs, Captain Mancuso in The Hunt For Red October, Wise Man in Sucker Punch and Ezra Kramer in the Bourne series.

Stick first appeared in the comics in 1981’s Daredevil #176, and has acute control of his senses as well as telepathic and life-draining abilities. »

Scott Glenn Joins Marvel’s Daredevil As Stick

15 September 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In another move that shows how much inspiration the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series will draw from Frank Miller’s run in the comics, Marvel has cast Scott Glenn (The Hunt for Red October, Silence of the Lambs) as Stick, the mysterious martial artist famous for training both Elektra and the titular Man Without Fear.

Stick was created by Miller in 1981, where he’s depicted as a blind master martial artist who not only teaches a young Matt Murdock how to fight, but how to control his senses and develop his “radar sense.” Stick is also revealed to be the leader of a warrior order called The Chaste that regularly fought with a mercenary group known as The Hand.

Stick was last played by Terence Stamp in the terrible 2005 film Elektra from 20th Century Fox. The studio heads at Marvel must have erased that casting from their minds, however, as the »

The Nostalgia Files: ‘Last Action Hero’ (1993)

26 August 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last Action Hero

Written by Zak Penn, Adam Leff, Shane Black, and David Argott

Directed by John McTiernan

USA, 1993

The concept of a film within a film is an idea that provides for truly interesting cinema. Films that are self-referential, satiric, and make fun of their own genre are often hilarious, thought-provoking, and downright fun. 1993’s cult favorite Last Action Hero is an action-fantasy that pokes fun at the action film genre in more ways than one. It stars the incomparable blockbuster movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger who is playing himself. Last Action Hero pretty much has it all and if you are a fan of the Austrian star or just action cinema in general, then this is the perfect film for you.

The film focuses on Danny Madigan (Austin O’Brien), a 12-year-old troublemaker obsessed with movies, in particular those of action hero Jack Slater, a fictionalized version of Schwarzenegger. »

Sequel Spotlight: ‘Final Fantasy VII’ and a titanic step forward for RPGs

3 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Final Fantasy VII

Squaresoft

Scea

Psx, PC

Anyone old enough to remember gaming in the 90s would, of course, remember the huge splash that Final Fantasy VII made when it first arrived back in the autumn of 1997. Preceded by a mountain of hype, a massive advertising campaign, and a price tag that signified it as the most expensive game ever produced, Ffvii had a heady and hefty weight on its shoulders before it even stepped out of the gate.

Luckily for Squaresoft (not yet Square-Enix), the game launched to almost universal praise, and quickly became a killer app for Sony’s first foray into the console market. Boasting easily the most gorgeous graphics anyone had ever seen, Ffvii soon ascended to the realm of legend, with much of its plot, iconic hero Cloud Strife, sinister villain Sephiroth, and an unflinchingly brutal main character death, a mere third of the way into the narrative, »

Alec Baldwin taking on an Impossible Mission

10 July 2014 1:23 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It could well be his mission, should he chose to accept it. Christopher McQuarrie wants Alec Baldwin for Mission Impossible 5. Starring alongside Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner, Jack Donaghy could play the head of the CIA.  Baldwin is a fantastic choice for the role and while it may well be difficult for 30 Rock fans to get the NBC executive out of their minds, keep in mind Baldwin has plenty of CIA experience! The Hunt For Red October anyone? Exactly! I like Baldwin. Whether it’s him fighting paparazzi or taking on Liz Lemon, the man has got incredible range and chemistry and it would be great to see him play off Tom Cruise! »

Alec Baldwin In Talks For Mission: Impossible 5

9 July 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Looks like Alec Baldwin will be drawing on whatever CIA knowledge he picked up playing Jack Ryan in The Hunt For Red October back in 1990, as he’s now being recruited to play the head of the agency in Mission: Impossible 5.Christopher McQuarrie wants Baldwin for the role, although he hasn’t yet chosen to accept the assignment. Assuming he signs on the dotted line, he’ll join Tom Cruise and a cast that likely includes Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and franchise good-luck charm Ving Rhames for the fifth outing of the venerable action series. This time it promises to do explosive things to London, among other locales. He's not the only person that Cruise and McQuarrie are targeting: Rebecca Ferguson, who you might have seen on TV's The White Queen, is set to play a femme fatale. Baldwin's also in talks for Will Smith’s latest, the still-untitled »

Alec Baldwin And Rebecca Ferguson In Talks For Mission: Impossible 5

9 July 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Public interest in the Tom Cruise-anchored Mission: Impossible franchise had started to wane after the lackluster second installment, but 2011′s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol did a tremendous job of breathing new life into the blockbuster series by bringing in The Incredibles director Brad Bird and introducing appealing characters played by Jeremy Renner and Paula Patton. So, now that casting for Mission: Impossible 5 is finally getting under way, we’re definitely interested in who’s joining Cruise’s super-spy Ethan Hunt for his next adventure.

Luckily for fans, the main cast of Ghost Protocol, including Renner, Patton and Simon Pegg, is returning, and today brings news that two more terrific actors have been brought into the fold. Deadline reports that 30 Rock alum Alec Baldwin, who previously played another iconic spook in Tom Clancy adaptation The Hunt for Red October, is circling a role in the film, while Variety is »

‘The Help’ Director Tate Taylor Joins ‘In the Event of a Moon Disaster’

25 June 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

FilmNation Entertainment has tapped ‘The Help” director Tate Taylor to helm  “In the Event of a Moon Disaster.”

FilmNation, which is producing and handling international sales, announced that Taylor will also come aboard to produce with his production partner John Norris.

FilmNation developed the Blacklist screenplay, written by Mike Jones (a former Variety reporter).

The project saw its genesis in 2009 when presidential speechwriter William Safire died and a speech called “In Event of Moon Disaster” was discovered in his papers. Written in 1969, the speech was to be read by President Nixon in the event that the Apollo 11 mission to the moon was met with tragedy.

The speech is the inspiration for this film — which plays out as a fictionalization or alternate reality of the actual events. Producers have begun casting with plans to commence  principal photography in early 2015.

FilmNation acquired Jones script in 2011.

50 brilliant movie opening credits sequences

25 June 2014 2:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a range of eras and genres, here's Jenny and Alex's light-hearted pick of 50 great opening title sequences from the movies...

Odd List

We don’t go to the cinema much, because we hate people. We also don’t go because there’s always the risk of accidentally going to see the wrong film. It's not helped by the fact that there's no way of telling until it’s too late, because there are no bloody opening credits on lots of modern films. And by the time you do realise, you’ve eaten all your popcorn and you can’t be bothered to move.

The movies on this list won’t give you that problem. These opening credits are perfect scene setters for the movies that follow, so you won’t have to worry about awkward popcorn wasting moments. It's not a top 50, rather a selection of 50 interesting credits sequences, »

TV Review: ‘The Last Ship’

19 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wedding military hardware and a martial mind-set to paranoia about global pandemics, “The Last Ship” is an odd duck — a post-apocalyptic tale with a glimmer of hope, tonally similar to (if not as good as) the late, lamented “Jericho.” It’s left to a hardy naval crew and one inordinately beautiful scientist try to save humanity, without knowing exactly what’s left of it to save. Eric Dane is firmly in square-jawed John Wayne territory as the ship’s captain, on a TNT summer drama with plenty of possibilities but also numerous pitfalls as it seeks to navigate rather treacherous narrative currents.

The USS Nathan James has been off in the Arctic and out of radio contact while a devastating “virus of unknown origin” has decimated humanity. But it turns out the ship was on a secret mission, hosting a paleomicrobiologist (no, really, look it up), Dr. Rachel Scott (Rhona Mitra »

'Speed' 20th anniversary: Screenwriter Graham Yost looks back on 'the bus movie' that became a classic

10 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Screenwriter Graham Yost, now the showrunner of FX’s Justified, admits that the plot of Speed sounds ridiculous: A bomb on a bus will detonate if the bus travels below 50 mph. But when the movie was released June 10, 1994, a funny thing happened: It became a hit with moviegoers and critics alike. To quote EW’s grade-a review: “The film takes off from formula elements – it’s yet another variation on Die Hard – but it manipulates those elements so skillfully, with such a canny mixture of delirium and restraint, that I walked out of the picture with the rare sensation that »

Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves and Jan de Bont look back at 'Speed' 20 years later

10 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's a bomb on a bus. Once the bus goes 50 miles an hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 50, it blows up. As movie premises go, this one is absolutely ridiculous, right? You'd have been forgiven for thinking so, at least, as few involved with Jan de Bont's "Speed," which was released by 20th Century Fox on June 10, 1994, could have anticipated its popularity. The film was a runaway hit, winning two Oscars and grossing over $350 million worldwide. Now, 20 years later, it's a celebrated relic of an era before blockbuster filmmaking was so awash in digital wizardry, an era when practical movie magic sold the highest of concepts to the masses. For actor Keanu Reeves, who starred as the film's hero, Lapd S.W.A.T. officer Jack Traven, it feels like that long ago if only because so much has changed over the last two decades. Though »
