The project is co-created by Lost vets Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, »

Backroads rewatched – fast-paced road film on racial injustice

26 September 2015 4:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Starring Aboriginal activist Gary Foley opposite Bill Hunter, director Phillip Noyce’s exploration into race relations is one ending short of being a classic

Of the many influential film-makers to have emerged from Australia in the 1970s, Phillip Noyce is one of the most political. Most of Noyce’s body of work consists of political dramas and thrillers, often with a side of geopolitical intrigue – titles such as Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Saint, Catch a Fire, Salt and The Quiet American.

In the early 2000s the director made a rare voyage back to Australian shores for the hard-hitting stolen generations drama Rabbit-Proof Fence, a personal but polemical film advertised in America with an incendiary poster tagline: “What if the government kidnapped your daughter?”

Jack Ryan Will Live On In A TV Series

23 September 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Say the words "Tom Clancy" and ex-military granddads, cigar smoking fathers, and guys dream of going on special ops missions themselves will come out of the woodwork. Or at least theoretically. The character of Jack Ryan had a pretty good run in the '90s thanks to "The Hunt For Red October," "Patriot Games," "Clear And Present Danger," and to a lesser extent in the early aughts with, "The Sum Of All Fears." And then there was last year's "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," an attempt to reboot the character in an unfortunately tame and fairly lackluster movie where the big threat was the ruin of the U.S. economy (though it hardly seems gripping considering politicians and bankers are doing that just fine on their own). But like any valuable property, there will be another kick at the can. Read More: Ranked: Tom Clancy Movies, From Worst To Best "Lost »

93 movie remakes and reboots currently in the works

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Akira

One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Philip Noyce And Thomas Carter Directing New Roots

22 July 2015 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With ABC's hugely lauded 1977 adaptation of Roots officially ranking as the third most-watched TV event of all time, it's a brave team that would attempt a remake. That's precisely what's about to happen, however: A&E Networks have just announced a new four-episode / eight-hour version of Alex Haley's novel, of which Philip Noyce and Thomas Carter will direct an episode each (the two further directors have yet to be announced).Haley's Roots: The Saga Of An American Family was first published in 1976, and, along with the TV version, became a cultural phenomenon. It involves the Gambian Kunta Kinte, sold into slavery in 1767, and his multiple generations of descendents throughout the following 200 years, each of whom passes on an oral history of their ancestor. Later chapters of the book became a further TV series, Roots: The Next Generation, in 1979.Noyce (Clear And Present Danger, Salt) will direct the first episode, »

6 Times Harrison Ford Kicked All the Ass

13 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Whether he's punching Nazis, shooting Stormtroopers or kicking terrorists off 747's, Harrison Ford is always ready to kick ass on the big screen.

Even though Ford is getting up there in years, he has carved out considerable care space in the hearts of movie fans. And he's gearing up for a mini-action hero comeback, reprising his role as Han Solo in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" this December, as well as that of Deckard in a "Blade Runner" sequel.

In honor of his birthday on July 13, here are six of our favorite scenes where Ford action hero'd his way out of trouble.

6. Bus Crash From "The Fugitive" (1993)

Most action heroes would call it a day after making a death-defying leap from a bus -- just a split-second before it was smushed by an oncoming train.

But for Ford's Dr. Richard Kimble, that was just a prelude to a mad dash »

Oscar-winning composer James Horner dies in plane crash at 61

23 June 2015 9:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Film composer James Horner died at the age of 61 on Monday (June 22) after the small airplane he was piloting crashed near Santa Barbara, Calif. Initial reports did not identify Horner as the plane's sole occupant, only that a plane registered to him was found crash-landed in Ventucopa, Calif., at 9:30am Pst, and that the pilot was dead. Agents Michael Gorfaine and Sam Schwartz and attorney Jay Cooper today (June 23) confirmed Horner was the pilot. Horner was a film composer long associated with some of cinema's most influential names, from James Cameron to Ron Howard to Roger Corman. His first score was for 1979's "The Lady in Red" but had his biggest break with 1982's "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." "Aliens" (1986) yielded his first of many Academy Award nominations for Best Original Score (and also Best Original Dramatic Score, from the '90s). The two Oscars he won »

James Horner: 1953-2015

22 June 2015 9:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The brilliant film music composer, James Horner, has died in a plane crash, at the age of 61.

Some horrible, horrible news. James Horner, who composed scores for over 50 films and TV shows across his career, has died. He was 61 years old.

Horner was piloting a small aircraft that crashed just north of Santa Barbara in the Us, which hit difficulties and crashed. It has since been confirmed that he died in the accident. Our thoughts are very much with his friends and family at what must be such a distressing time.

The one bright spot is the incredible body of work that Horner leaves behind. We find ourselves regularly playing the scores to Field Of Dreams, Aliens, Sneakers, Clear And Present Danger, Krull and Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan here (and in lookbacks we've written for most of those films, Horner's music has cropped up), but so extensive »

22 June 2015 9:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Composer James Horner, who won two Oscars for the music of “Titanic” and scored such other blockbusters as “Avatar,” “Braveheart,” “Apollo 13″ and “A Beautiful Mind,” has died, Variety has confirmed. He was 61.

Castle season 7 episode 21 review: In Plane Sight

5 May 2015 12:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This episode of Castle gets the mystery spot-on, even if it's missing the show's usual Beckett-Castle chemistry...

This review contains spoilers.

7.21 In Plane Sight

It’s not often that Castle goes outside its comfort zone. And still less often that it does it well. But In Plane Sight was just such an outing, and a real treat for mystery fans.

On one level, this is a surprise. After all, this episode has few of the hallmarks of what faithful viewers tend to think of as key to a good Castle tale. In Plane Sight takes place entirely during the course of a transatlantic flight on the always-tragic Oceanic Air (Oceanic Air/Airlines/Airways is the commonly used name of an airline company where bad air stuff always happens—think Lost or Executive Decision) during which Rick and Alexis are on their way to London to have a little father-daughter bonding-time. »

18 films that took their inspiration from James Bond movies

3 May 2015 4:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bourne and Mission: Impossible, right back to Harry Palmer and Danger Diabolik - meet the many pretenders to James Bond's throne...

Since 1962, the James Bond franchise has come to define the spy genre, for good or ill. More broadly, every thriller and action film that comes out now either uses them as inspiration, or attempts to ignore or re-work the tropes that have come to be associated with the series.

Coming off the release of Kingsman: The Secret Service, and with the release of a new Bond film this year, now seems like the perfect time to take a look at a sample of the films which have been inspired by James Bond — either as homages, parodies or reactions.

The Ipcress File (1965)

Produced by James Bond producer Harry Saltzman as a more grounded alternative to the largesse of Bond, The Ipcress File is more concerned with the intricacies of real spy-work — the endless paperwork, »
