One of the several movies celebrating a historic anniversary this year is Trainspotting, director Danny Boyle's breakout hit which was released almost exactly 20 years ago. After years of rumors and speculation, the long-awaited sequel Trainspotting 2 started production this year, with Sony Pictures setting a February 10, 2017 release date. Although we got the first trailer in May when production started, today we have a new teaser trailer, which gives us our first look at the four main stars, Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle.
We only get a quick glance at Ewan McGregor as Renton, Ewen Bremner as Spud, Johnny Lee Miller as Sick Boy and Robert Carlyle as Begbie. Though not confirmed in this teaser, Kelly MacDonald is also reprising her role as Diane. Kevin McKidd is the only cast member from Trainspotting who won't be back in front of the camera, since his character, Tommy, »
Twenty years on from their drug-induced spiral into self-destruction, Renton (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) stage a reunion in the very first teaser for Danny Boyle’s dramedy sequel, Trainspotting 2.
Bearing the official title T2 – and absolutely zero connection to James Cameron’s Judgement Day – the snippet below comes to us via The Guardian, and acts as a nice callback to Boyle’s cult original where four twentysomethings navigated the darker corners of Edinburgh, encountering mind-bending drugs and impossibly sized toilets (read: hallucinations) to boot.
Penned by John Hodge, Trainspotting 2 is once again based on the work of acclaimed arthur Irvine Welsh, this time adapting the novel Porno which checks in on those four lowlifes twenty years on from the events of the original film.
It’s been a long time coming, too, and Danny Boyle’s continue interest in the »

Danny Boyle has rounded up the old Trainspotting cast for a sequel, which will see Renton (Ewan McGregor) and the boys—well, middle-aged men—reunited for…well, that’s not entirely clear. The movie will follow Irvine Welsh’s Porno, his sequel to the book, but Boyle has said the script from John Hodge is only loosely based on that work. Porno featured most of the characters of the original and plenty of backstabbing, though that appears to be in the past or future in this first teaser for the new film. In this teaser, everyone—including Begbie—is just standing peacefully on the platform, watching a train go by as “Lust For Life” plays in the background.

San Diego — While promoting the 30th anniversary DVD/Blu-ray release of “Aliens” at Comic-Con Saturday, director James Cameron explained why his “Avatar” series needs the scope of the three sequels he announced at Cinema-Con in April. He also finally dropped details on a Blu-ray release of his 1989 sci-fi film “The Abyss.”
“The ‘Avatar’ story arc was originally meant to be a trilogy, but I overwrite, and my writers overwrote as well,” Cameron told Variety in an interview. “But basically the first of the sequels cloned itself and became two films, so now it’s four films. And the studio’s very happy with it. They have an opportunity to make more money, but it’s also an opportunity to spend a lot more money, too, so there’s a clench factor.”
The aim, he said, is to orchestrate production in such a way that he can drop the films a year apart. »

The first sequel to the film “Alien,” stars Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of the attack on the Nostromo, as she returns to the planet where her crew encountered the Alien, only this time with a crew of space marines. Naturally, everything goes wrong, and it’s up to Ripley to stop another attack from killing her and a traumatized young girl named Newt (Carrie Henn).
Now, the film’s cast are celebrating the anniversary with a panel at this year’s Comic-Con, with a live stream Q&A featuring questions from audience members and the Internet. The people participating include James Cameron, producer Gale Anne Hurd, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, »

Let it be known that Jason Bourne, the CIA’s elusive secret agent, is a man of few words. Opting to shoot first, pummel a few goons, and then ask questions, all across Universal’s action franchise Matt Damon’s spy has ensured his fists do the talking – a trend that will absolutely continue in two weeks’ time.
That’s because, as Damon revealed to The Guardian, Jason Bourne has only 25 lines of dialogue in Paul Greengrass’ imminent actioner and here, the actor himself offered his own two cents about maintaining the reticent, glowering demeanour that has helped Bourne become a genre icon.
“Well, I’ve done it three times. In the first movie, the Marie Kreutz character is still alive, so Bourne has a sounding board and he’s more confused about who he is and a lot more chatty. Once she dies in the first act of the second movie, »

In 1991, Arnold Schwarzenegger was paid $15 million to star in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a movie where he only speaks 700 worlds in 137 minutes. That’s roughly $21,429 per word. Earlier this year, everyone slowly realized that Henry Cavill’s Superman had very little to say in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, even though […]

Directed by Paul Feig.
Starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth, Andy Garcia, Charles Dance, Michael Kenneth Williams, Cecily Strong, Neil Casey, Elizabeth Perkins, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
It is completely ridiculous that the gender politics controversy surrounding Paul Feig’s (Spy, The Heat, and Bridesmaids) Ghostbusters reboot has spiraled out of control to the point where I must begin my review by saying up front that while I do not particularly think this film is great, I am not misogynistic or sexist. Some of my most highly praised movies of last year here starred women (Brie Larson gave the best acting achievement of 2015 in the emotionally charged Room, »

*Spoilers for the Terminator franchise
There was a time, if you remember, when James Cameron wasn’t weirdly obsessed with those funny blue aliens over on Pandora. Back in the early ’90s, when Tarantino was paving his way into Hollywood and Spielberg was bringing dinosaurs back to life, Cameron was busy cranking out ready-made classics like True Lies, The Abyss (okay, it was ’89) and, most notably, a sequel to his time-travelling actioner The Terminator (he also made in that decade some movie about a big ship that sinks but I forget the name). These days, a glance at Cameron’s IMDb page sadly yields little more than an endless list of Avatar sequels.
In total its four sequels to a film which arguably doesn’t need one, none of which he’s even begun shooting yet. This will fill »

Aliens is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary, and that being the case, a lot of the cast and filmmakers who worked on the movie have been reflecting on it recently and looking ahead to the future of the franchise. Sigourney Weaver is pretty much the most consistent player in the Alien franchise, and she isn't quite done with Ripley yet. She has plans to play the character one more time in Neill Blomkamp's proposed Alien 5, and she recently shared some details on what to expect from the movie.
Speaking with EW about the recently announced Aliens reunion that will be taking place at San Diego Comic Con this month, the subject of Blomkamp's sequel inevitably came out. The movie appears to be on hold for now, but Weaver is talking about it as though it is still very much alive, and she clarified some things about the timeline of the movie, »
Terminator 2 Turns 25
It’s been twenty-five years since Terminator 2: Judgement Day descended on Us audiences. James Cameron pulled an Aliens and again managed to create a sequel that surpassed the original by switching the plot around on its head.
In The Terminator Sarah Connor, played by Linda Hamilton, was hunted down by a killer cyborg, played of course by Arnold Schwarzengger. The second time around the villain became the hero and Arnie was in charge of Sarah’s young son John Connor and had to prevent him being murdered by Robert Patrick‘s liquid-metal T-1000.
It’s a movie whose legacy continues, and we don’t mean those terrible follow-ups. The film was a landmark in special effects, story-telling, summer blockbusters and sequels. To celebrate a quarter of a century with time-travelling terminators turned saviour, here’s a list of facts that you might not know:

In the middle of 1983, James Cameron suddenly found himself unexpectedly busy. He had rewrites to do on The Terminator, a project that was supposed to start filming that summer but wound up being pushed back due to its star Arnold Schwarzenegger's other work commitments. At the same time, he also had two other scripts to write: a Rambo sequel for Carolco and an Alien sequel for 20th Century Fox.
Seemingly unfazed, Cameron simply worked out how many pages he had to write, divided the number by the amount of time he had - about four months - and got down to work. Three of the most successful action movies of the 1980s therefore had their creative genesis at roughly the same time, as Cameron spent »
Before he was working with hundred-million-dollar budgets — hell, before he was even making that “Piranha” sequel — James Cameron was an aspiring filmmaker like any other. He first announced himself to the world with 1978’s “Xenogenesis,” a 12-minute short made in 1978. If you’re curious where the king of the world got his start, watch the shoestring sci-fi project below.
Beginning with a series of illustrations set to narrated voiceover, the film bills itself as “man’s ultimate adventure.” William Wisher stars as a passenger aboard a sentient spacecraft looking for a suitable environment to start anew — imagine a shoestring version of the prologue from “Prometheus.” Long before he reaches this new beginning, the spacefarer encounters a rather large robot whose functionality appears to extend well beyond maintenance and upkeep. This results in the »

Great actors get tons of accolades in Hollywood, the Walk of Fame,
Emmys, People Choice Awards, etc. But, the barometer that they use to determine their validity comes from somewhere a little different.
If an actor gets a statue at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, it’s safe to say that they have finally arrived and are really and truly famous. In the same vein, a movie doesn’t become iconic until a branded slot game, based on its plot, is created. Interested in learning more? This article reviews and recommends some of the best-branded slots based on
movies that you can find at instacasino.com/, and other similar sites.
Virtually everyone has heard of Jurassic Park, especially since a new series in the franchise was recently released. In this case, we are talking about the Steven Spielberg-directed Blockbuster film from the early nineties.

While it may just be recut footage from the original, it does a great job of getting us excite for the return of Renton, Spud, Begbie, and Sick Boy. Check it out below. Trainspotting 2 hits screens on January 27th 2017. »

While Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s immortal words, “I’ll be back,” helped launch a franchise, and James Cameron‘s vision and unrivaled skill for spectacle cemented its place in cinema history, the “Terminator” series also owes a considerable debt to composer Brad Fiedel. Scoring the first film and the follow-up, “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” his throbbing, futuristic work helped established […]

As Hollywood struggles to reinvent their array of superheroes with each iteration, it’s no surprise that audiences would become hungry for something off the beaten path. While it’s not the first post-modern comic-book adaptation, Deadpool is billed as ushering in a new direction: a fan-spurred, self-aware tentpole that’s R-rated to its core, featuring a wise-ass character (don’t call him »

It can be argued that a character’s lines can move a film forward and have more of an impact on the audience than any amount of action or breathtaking filmmaking. Lines, including narrations provide a source of information often more direct than an image. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, »
