With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.
From its first few shots, it’s clear that American Ultra is removed from the relatively grounded drama of Greg Mottola’s underrated Adventureland, the last film that paired Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. We first meet Eisenberg’s bloodied and beaten Mike Howell detained and chained to a table in a septic interrogation room. As an agent throws photographic evidence of »

Chloe Moretz will star in Universal and Working Title's long-gestating "The Little Mermaid," to be written by "Love Actually" screenwriter Richard Curtis, as producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner attempt to revive the troubled project once more. No replacement for director Sofia Coppola, who left the film this spring citing "creative differences," has been named. Read More: "'Anna Karenina' and 'Les Miserables' Producers Bevan and Fellner Nab PGA Selznick Award" Moretz and Curtis' involvement marks at least the third iteration of the live-action adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's beloved fairy tale, which has been in development since at least 2011. Frequent Working Title collaborator Joe Wright ("Pride and Prejudice," "Atonement") was once attached, before drafts by "Fifty Shades of Grey" screenwriter Kelly Marcel and "Suffragette" scribe Abi Morgan stalled; Coppola signed on in March »

When the early box office reports began rolling in, the prognosis for Joe Wright’s Pan was worrying at best. As a star-studded CG-laden romp, Warner Bros.’ fairytale flop could result in a financial loss of $150 million, though the ramifications of its failure could extend even further if The Wrap is to be believed.
According to the outlet, Wright has now been removed from Lionsgate’s Julius Caesar blockbuster Emperor as a direct result of Pan‘s poor box office returns, though it’s worth noting that the filmmaker’s representative deem this report to be “categorically untrue.” Indeed, the fact that Wright was never openly confirmed as the director of the period piece – he was merely in contention at one point – begs the question whether he was involved in the pre-production at all, though it seems safe to assume that he will not helm the project after all.

The Wrap reports that Wright was in negotiations to direct the young Julius Caesar film and potential franchise launcher "Emperor" at Lionsgate, but talks quickly broke down after his "Pan" film flopped to the extent of a $150 million write-down for studio Warner Bros. Pictures.
Based on the first two books in Conn Iggulden's series, the story follows the relationship between military leader Julius Caesar and Marcus Brutus, a great fighter who was Caesar's best friend and eventual enemy.
One source tells the site that the studio is "going back to the drawing board" on the project. Wright's reps call the report "categorically untrue," Lionsgate has declined to comment, and one producer says that though there had been »

Celebrated English novelist Jane Austen and her seminal Pride and Prejudice aren’t often associated with the undead – in fact, they never were until Seth Grahame-Smith’s genre-mashing Pride and Prejudice and Zombies arrived on the scene in 2009.
Now, after six years and numerous production setbacks, director Burr Steers is bringing the Bennet sisters to the screen like never before, with today’s full-length trailer for the feature pitting the mannered against the undead. Hertfordshire and its surrounding boroughs are under siege from a zombie apocalypse, though if anything, today’s sizzle reel proves that the Bennet siblings are more than capable of handling themselves, and there are some truly captivating shots included above – how about that money shot with the decapitated head, eh?
Coming by way of Entertainment Weekly, the full-length clip follows on the heels of last week’s teaser, showcasing the events that unfold when the upper »

The second trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has hit and it's way more appealing (at least to me) than the first. Here we get more set-up of an atmospheric and scary world set upon by the black plague. We also get a better feel for the film's scale and scope which feels sprawling.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an adaptation of the 2009 parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. The book mashes up Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice with elements of modern zombie fiction. It was a huge hit upon release and launched Grhame-Smith's career as a Hollywood producer and screenwriter.
Jane Austen's classic tale [Continued ...] »
For Future. For Love. For Family. Everyone must fight! That's the declaration made in the all-new full-length trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The classic Jane Austen novel gets a bloody and very violent twist in this action-thriller from Burr Steers. There's no comedy in sight as this pack of knife-toting women strap up to take on the Black Plague and the Zombie Apacolypse it leaves in it's wake.
In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield. »
On Friday, I attended the Fresh Romance panel moderated by Janelle Asselin, a former editor at DC Comics, Disney, and Comics Alliance and the founder and current editor-in-chief of Rosy Press. Rosy Press’ only monthly title is Fresh Romance, which is a digital romance anthology comic that comes out on the last Tuesday of every month and contains three ten page stories that are usually serialized. The comics can be found on Comixology or the Rosy Press website and are just a click away.
Currently, Fresh Romance has two stories running and one that has recently wrapped off. There is “School Spirit” written by Kate Leth (Bravest Warriors) with art by Arielle Jovellanos (Jem Annual) and colors from Amanda Scurti. “School Spirit” is a high school romance about two lesbian teens pretending to date boys so people won’t find out about and also has magic and superpowers. There is »

Welcome to the Regency era – or at least Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ take on it.
Yes, the women are still refined, and the men proper – but whist, piano, and needlepoint aren’t the only skills required if you’re going to succeed in this English countryside. Under the tutelage of their father, Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters have become a corset-wearing, gun-toting, knife-wielding squadron of zombie hunters – who are also, of course, moderately acceptable marriage material.

Comic book fans are starting to get a clearer picture of what 2018.s The Flash is going to look like. For a year now, we.ve known that The Stanford Prison Experiment.s Ezra Miller will be playing Barry Allen on the big screen. Then we learned earlier this year that 21 Jump Street writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller penned the treatment. Finally, it was reported on Monday that Pride and Prejudice and Zombie writer Seth Grahame-Smith is in negotiations to direct the feature. Behind the scenes, things are shaping up. However, there.s still a lot we don.t know about the DC Extended Universe.s interpretation of the Flash -- namely, what his costume will look like -- but we may have just gotten a few hints in the wardrobe department. Den of Geek has posted several tidbits of what The Flash movie is aiming to have the »
One thing that even the fiercest of book critics would agree with is that Jane Austen.s classic novel Pride and Prejudice probably could have done with some more zombies. Well, those of you who feel the same way will soon get your wish, because Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is coming to a big screen near you soon, and its first UK trailer makes it look immense. Yep, that looks about as superb as we probably all thought. Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is based upon a novel that was written by Seth Grahame-Smith back in 2009. Rather than being an original piece, Jane Austen herself actually gets a co-author credit because Smith used the original text of Pride And Prejudice and then just incorporated zombie and ninja elements to it. Which is about as ingenius an ideas as I've ever heard. Clearly, this book was always going to be »
It’s the mannered against the undead in the riotous first teaser for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the long-gestating adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s acclaimed novel of the same name. Smashing genres together in the vein of Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland, Burr Steers’ visceral period piece is finally ready to strut its stuff after a number of creative switcheroos, but the director is keen to point out that the film takes the inclusion of the undead very seriously indeed, and in no way acts as a camp satire of Jane Austin’s seminal novel.
Granted, the timeless love story between Elizabeth Bennet (Cinderella‘s Lily James) and Mr. Darcy will still be woven into the fabric of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, they’ll just have to deal with flesh-munching zombies – referred to as the ‘Sorry Stricken’ – in addition to the usual relationship troubles. For Steers, “the »

To succeed in polite society, a young woman must be many things. Kind. Well read. And accomplished. But to survive in the world as we know it? She'll need other qualities! http://movieweb.com/pride-prejudice-zombies-movie-photos/Based on the book by Jane Austen, the first international trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has arrived, and it's an equal mix of period drama and ass-kicking action movie. The full-length domestic trailer is said to be dropping in two weeks!
Sure to be a 19th Century blood bath, this generation gets a Jane Austen interpretation like non-other before it, as Seth Grahame-Smith's mash-up novel prepares to hit the big screen just in time for Valentine's Day this February. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies tells the classic love story with an apocalyptic twist sure to scare anyone into fits of panic, followed by a series of hot flashes. Lily James takes on the role of Lizzy, »
If you’re looking for a reflexive, self-aware zombie movie—maybe not unlike “Zombieland”—which plays with walking dead tropes, perhaps even acknowledging how absurd zombies within the world of Jane Austen is, you’re looking in the wrong place. “The idea was that it was ‘Pride and Prejudice’ set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Burr Steers (“Igby Goes Down”), the director of “Pride And Prejudice And Zombies” explained to EW. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” The ‘P&P&Z’ version that’s hitting screens next year is vastly different from the many iterations that were once in development. David O. Russell was once going to direct and Natalie Portman was once attached to star (Russell’s script remnants may still make it into the final fabric of the movie). An adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s »

Florid dresses! Corsets! The living, flesh-eating dead! Here's the first UK trailer for the Pride And Prejudice And Zombies movie...
Jane Austen's classic novel Pride And Prejudice got a horror make-over courtesy of novelist Seth Grahame-Smith in 2009, and now, after a bit of a storied production, here's the big-screen version starring Sam Riley, Matt Smith, Lena Headey and Charles Dance.
Burr Steers is the director behind the movie, and it's a bit of a departure for him; he's perhaps best known as the writer and director of such films as Igby Goes Down and Charlie St Cloud. His experience as a dramatist should come in handy here though, since Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is still a period piece at heart, even if it does happen to feature an army of the drooling undead.

Audiences might expect the Peter Pan prequel Pan to be a big screen adaptation of humorist Dave Barry’s and writer Ridley Pearson’s bestselling “Peter and the Starcatchers,” a funny, clever, imaginative prequel to J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic “Peter Pan,” or perhaps an adaption of the smart, funny, creative Broadway musical they wrote, “Peter and the Starcatcher,” a Tony Award-winning production that delighted grown-ups as well as kids.
Sadly, Pan is neither.
Pan is a kind of prequel to Peter Pan, but the cleverness, charm and humor of “Peter and the Starcatcher” are entirely missing in this disappointing big-budget extravaganza. Instead, “Pan” features a line-up of Hollywood stars, lavish costumes and sets with dazzling visual effects but a script cobbled together from tired, overly familiar kid’s adventure movie tropes, a movie that brings to mind 2013’s “The Lone Ranger.” It seems like the filmmakers »

Every once in a while, life hands you an unexpected treat. In this particular case that treat is the new family adventure film Pan. You likely did not know you were even missing something in your children’s fairy tale catalog. That is, you probably never stopped to think, even after seeing Peter Pan in full on Disney style so many times, about how Peter became Peter in the first place. This movie answers that unasked question for us.
The film was directed by Joe Wright who is better know for more adult fare like Atonement (2007) and Pride and Prejudice (2005). The screenplay was written by Jason Fuchs who has only one kid’s film under his belt, Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012). How does this pairing of writer and director fare whilst trying to deliver a Peter Pan prequel? Quite well indeed.
Pan is the story of an orphan boy, named »

Directed by Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement) the film centers on Peter's first journey into Neverland. Hugh Jackman stars as the vicious Blackbeard, who is determined to hunt down the orphaned boy (Levi Miller), while Hook (Garrett Hedlund) and Tiger Lilly (Rooney Mara) fight to keep him safe.

Well, who didn’t see this coming? Ahead of its debut in North America next week, pre-release tracking for Joe Wright’s Pan points to the Peter Pan origin story struggling to earn as much as $30 million during its opening weekend, a dismal amount for a movie Warner Bros. has sunk a lot of money into in terms of the production budget and marketing costs.
While it’s possible that Pan will be one of those movies which makes its money back overseas, a weak start in Australia last weekend doesn’t seem to point to that being the case. However, the fact that it opens pretty much everywhere throughout October (including China) could end up helping it a great deal.
Pan cost $150 million to produce and has an impressive cast which includes Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlun and Rooney Mara. It’s the first blockbuster for Wright after he helmed well-received movies like Atonement, »
