Title teaser for Warcraft, plus Sdcc footage description

26 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This afternoon, Legendary Pictures took the opportunity to showcase director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) showcased footage from his forthcoming fantasy epic Warcraft, and while that footage probably won’t see the light of day online, Legendary has released an incredibly brief title teaser video, which you can watch here…

And via Screen Rant, here’s a brief description of the footage that was shown today:

The Warcraft teaser that followed was narrated by both a human and an Orc from the film (each seemed to be reading from their war diaries), indicating that the movie will very much examine what leads to the conflict between the two races from both of their perspectives (think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Most of the footage was focused on depicting the various environments and landscapes of Azeroth, there was also some material teasing actual battle sequences involving the two clans. »

24 July 2014 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This may not be the most exciting thing to come out of San Diego Comic-Con today, but the official logo for Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones’ Warcraft adaptation has been revealed. The logo was on display at the Legendary Pictures booth, along with some weaponry. Take a look at the logo here…

Warcraft is an adaptation of the incredibly popular video game franchise, and arrives in theaters on March 11, 2016. It sports a great cast that includes Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Misson: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Ben Foster (Lone Survivor, X-Men: The Last Stand), Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim), Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), Daniel Wu (The Man with the Iron Fists), and Clancy Brown (Starship Troopers, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 14th 2014

14 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

In a canny move surprising few, Amazon have gone and echoed a pattern Netflix began around a year ago and nabbed a series from the Us where they will add an episode each week the day after its Us broadcast. This practice worked well with Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn in the past year and the publicity it got could well be the reason why you might encounter so many people who are only now making their way through five seasons of Breaking Bad via Netflix. So the show in question which be all exclusive up in here is the new Steven Spielberg/Halle Berry joint called Extant.

I knew nothing about this show going in and that is perhaps the best way to view it. I’m not going to claim this is the new Lost or whatever at this point but the first episode was ‘promising »

The Flash Finds It's Simon Stagg In William Sadler; Could We See Metamorpho?

12 July 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It looks as if William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption, Iron Man 3) has joined the second episode of CW's The Flash, as wealthy buisnessman Simon Stagg. Back in comics history, Simon ties into Rex Mason, who becomes the shapeshifter Metamorpho. We already have Katana cast into season 3 of Arrow, so could we possibly get comics team The Outsiders? It's a stretch, but it's possible! Comment below and give us your thoughts on the matter! The Flash set dec. pic.twitter.com/EyYMgxqeeQ — William Sadler (@Wm_Sadler) July 12, 2014 Simon Stagg is the unscrupulous owner and CEO of Stagg Enterprises and the father of Sapphire Stagg.

Previous | Image 1 of 4 | Next Morgan Freeman honored by the Gene Siskel Film Center, June 7th, 2014.

Chicago – The sonorous and familiar voice of Morgan Freeman was in Chicago on June 7th, 2014, as the Gene Siskel Film Center presented “A Candid Conversation with Morgan Freeman” to benefit the theater. The event, at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago, raised more than $350,000 for the Film Center’s programming budget.

The Academy Award winning actor – for “Million Dollar Baby” – is well known for his authoritative narrative voice and heroic presence in films such as “The Shawshank Redemption”, ”Deep Impact,” “Unforgiven,” “Seven,” “The Dark Knight” and “Last Vegas.” He began his career on stage and on the 1970s PBS TV show, “Electric Company,” and has built his resume after his 1989 roles in “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Glory.” He even recently had an animation voiceover role in “The Lego Movie.”

Kevin Smith says the Weinsteins passed on 'Clerks 3,' still plans to make it

8 July 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Kevin Smith has been working hard on Clerks 3 for a couple years now, although the project has transformed from a potential Broadway stage experience to a potential old-fashioned movie film for theaters. Smith also initially mused that Clerks 3 would be his last movie–an announcement which, following to the Soderbergh Rule of Auteur Retirement, precipitated a creative period during which Smith claims to have finished five scripts.

There were some theories that the Clerks threequel would be finished in time for the 20th anniversary of the original film, which arrived in theaters in October 1994 (the same month as Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption). However, »

10 Best Prison Break Movies and Scenes

8 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Who doesn't love a good prison break? I was thinking about it recently and realized some of my favorite movies involve prison breaks. This year alone there were two movies that I saw that featured brilliant prison break scenes. If I ever get thrown into jail, the first thing I'm going to do is start plotting my escape! I'll want a good story to tell people. 

I came up with a list of ten movies that included kick-ass prison break scenes. No matter what kind of prision a person is in, I imagine it's hell. Sure, some are worse than others, but I imagine anyone that ever been thrown in one can't wait to get out. There is a point for many of these characters where they ain't got nothin' to loose, so escaping become their only option. If I ever do have to break out of a prison these »

'Forrest Gump' turns 20: The movie's secret best moments

6 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s strange to feel sheepish about loving a film that won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture—a critical and commercial smash that earned nearly $700 million at the global box office and has been chosen for preservation in the National Film Archive.

And yet: Exactly two decades after its release, calling Forrest Gump one of your favorite movies is an act bound to raise eyebrows, provided you’re talking to anyone who fancies herself a film buff. Most anti-Gumpers resent the movie more for what it isn’t than what it is; as they’ll be the first to remind you, »

10 Fun Facts about Stand By Me

2 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I recently watched Rob Reiner's classic film Stand By Me for the thousandth time, and it was just as enjoyable as the first time I saw it. The movie is based on a short story by Stephen King called The Body, and it turned out to be such an incredible film that has become a timeless classic. I have yet to meet someone that hasn't liked it. 

I've been having fun doing these little top 10 trivia posts, as I always seem to learn a few things I never knew before about the films that I love to watch. So here's a top 10 list of fun facts that you may or may not already know about Stand By Me.

Kiefer Sutherland claimed in an interview that in one of the locations of the film, a Renaissance Fair was being held and the cast and crew attended and bought some cookies. »

Film Industry's List of 100 Favorite Films in The Hollywood Reporter Is Same Old Story

30 June 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This week, The Hollywood Reporter published a list of Hollywood's 100 favorite films, according to 2,120 film industry insiders that included actors, writers, directors, agents and executives. Unsurprisingly, there are no surprises here. It's the same old poll we've seen time and again, as in AFI's 100 Years 100 Movies list, with "Citizen Kane" again topping the chart (it was recently dethroned by "Vertigo" in Sight and Sound's top 50 movies poll). While "The Shawshank Redemption" (number four) and "Forrest Gump" (number 14) are good films that duked it out for Best Picture in 1995, they're too high on this list. Is the white male demo, likely the bulk of THR's participants, patting itself on the back here? Criticwire took the poll to task in a recent post outlining the galling dearth of documentaries, foreign films, films by women and films from non-white directors. The prevalence of these arbitrary top 100 lists seems to be bullying, to »

Frank Darabont in talks to direct 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2'

27 June 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Deadline reports Frank Darabont is in final talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2.

The site notes, however, that Darabont has a version of the story that would focus exclusively on the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth), and it’s not even known if Snow White (Kristen Stewart) would return for the sequel of sorts. (Might it be called The Search for Snow?) Reps for Universal and Darabont didn’t immediately respond to a request for confirmation.

Darabont previously was an executive producer of The Walking Dead and directed The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, among other films. »

Frank Darabont in Talks to Direct The Huntsman

27 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I love the films of Frank Darabont. The guy knows how to tell an amazing story. I'm just not sure about this possible next project of his. THR is reporting the the director is currently in talks with Universal Pictures to direct a movie called The Huntsman, which is described as a spin-off movie of Snow White and The Huntsman. Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are expected to reprise their roles in the film. Kristin Stewart however will not be coming back, and I can't see anyone complaining about that.

The only thing I liked about the first movie was Theron's performance. She was awesome, but the film itself as a whole was terribly disappointing. I was so unimpressed that I have no interest in seeing another film set in that world. Even with Darabont directing, the idea of it still doesn't do anything for me. It seems like one »

Frank Darabont circling 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2' - will Kristen Stewart return?

26 June 2014 5:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Frank Darabont may be heading to fantasy land for his next feature. The "Walking Dead" creator is in talks to direct "Snow White and the Huntsman 2," the followup to the 2012 action-fantasy flick that starred Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, according to Deadline. The first film was directed by Rupert Sanders and grossed nearly $400 million worldwide (albeit on a steep $170 million budget) despite receiving only mixed reviews from critics. Interestingly, the film is being discussed as a spinoff as opposed to a direct sequel, with the plot centering on Hemsworth's Huntsman character. There's no word yet as to whether Stewart will reprise the title role, though she did seem excited about the possibility in an interview conducted a few months after the first film's release. Granted, that was more than 18 months ago, and the general thrust of the project appears to have changed considerably since then. Darabont, whose departure »

Snow White And The Huntsman 2 Looking To Cut Out Kristen Stewart, Frank Darabont May Direct

26 June 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Back in 2012, the fairy tale epic Snow White and the Huntsman turned out to be a pretty mixed bag. Made for a high $170 million, the film was able to make nearly $400 million at the global box office, but it also suffered the wrath of many critics and had to deal with a behind the scenes controversy regarding star Kristen Stewart having an affair with director Rupert Sanders. Consequently, we've been hearing rumors of a possible sequel or spin-off for years, but nothing has ever materialized. Now something is finally coming together, but it's probably nothing like what you thought it was going to be. The Wrap has not only gotten word that The Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont is now lining up to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2, but also that the film will be shifting gears to focus the Huntsman - played by Chris Hemsworth - and is »

Frank Darabont To Direct Snow White And The Huntsman 2

26 June 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that Frank Darabont will helm Snow White and the Huntsman 2 for Universal. The first film took in $396 million at the worldwide box office but only received a medicore reception from moviegoers. It was also overshadowed by all the drama that went on between star Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders. Nevertheless, a sequel was always in the cards and now it seems as if the studio is ready to move ahead with it.

While Universal was originally looking at directors like Gavin O’Connor and Andres Muschietti for the job, Darabont is said to be their man. However, in a surprising turn of events, they may have lost Stewart. That’s right, apparently the studio wants to turn this into a real franchise, with spinoffs and all.

Said spinoffs will focus on Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman, meaning that they don’t really have much use for Stewart anymore. »
