Oscar nominee Tom Cruise (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “Collateral,” “Jerry Maguire”) and Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “The Adjustment Bureau”) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ sci-fi thriller Edge Of Tomorrow, under the direction of Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”).
The epic action of Edge Of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Check out the trailer below.
Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.
But with each battle, »

When you think of alien invaders, you probably think of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, or the extraterrestrials from Independence Day, or even the shape-shifting monster from John Carpenter's The Thing. What you probably don't think of are the little pixelized creatures from Space Invaders. And yet here are the classic gaming icons starring in a new short film from French filmmaker Thomas Lesourd. The short, entitled Invaders from Space, merges the game characters with real-world actors and recycled footage to create what Lesourd calls "a photo-real experience of a war movie with real people fighting Invaders." I probably wouldn't call it that, personally -- I'd just call it strange and kinda cool, and reminiscent of an '80s music video. Same...

"Any time you can get Big Willie [Smith] to come out and talk about doing a third installment of a hot movie like 'Bad Boys,' you have to take notice. I met with Michael Bay and he said he's onboard too—so it's real," Martin Lawrence declared back in 2010. Clearly, it didn't happen, but Lawrence isn't wrong in saying that the project was/is "real." In 2009, Sony hired Peter Craig ("The Town") to pen a script but it seems the studio, still looking to get Will Smith and Lawrence back together, are looking for a fresh approach. And so, they've hired David Guggenheim ("Safe House," "Stolen") to write a script for the hoped for "Bad Boys 3." But it's probably a long way off. For one thing, Will Smith tends to be choosy and mercurial and generally doesn't make it easy for these kinds of projects to happen (see the »

It won't be the roar of Gabbar that would be heard on Independence Day next year. Instead, there would be some all-round entertainment on display, albeit a week in advance. Reason? Akshay Kumar's Its Entertainment is now arriving on 8th August while his Gabbar would release later in the year.This is courtesy the moving ahead of Holiday remake of Thuppakki which has resulted in a ripple effect for Akshay's films, informs a source, Earlier Holiday was supposed »
The tragic death of Paul Walker has left a lot of questions up in the air, most notably the impact it would have on the already in-production Fast & Furious 7 , which had director James Wan scrambling to try to make the planned July 11, 2014 release date. With production halted for an indeterminate time, it raised even more questions about whether that date was feasible, something Universal Pictures has remained quiet about. At least one studio isn't taking any chances of missing out on a plum post-Independence Day weekend in July, so 20th Century Fox moved their own sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes , directed by Matt Reeves, forward one week to the July 11 release date previously earmarked for Fast & Furious 7 . (Having seen what Fast & Furious 6 did to »
2015 is shaping up as the Year of the Hollywood Franchise, but 2016 isn’t looking shabby either. A handful of genre tentpoles – like the Warcraft and Angry Birds game movies and The Mummy film reboot – have already been set for release that year, in addition to heavyweight sequels like Independence Day 2, Finding Dory and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (all of which had previously been eyed for a 2015 launch).
Paramount hopes to have Star Trek 3 - the third entry in the rebooted Star Trek movie continuity - ready for takeoff by 2016, seeing how that year marks the 50th anniversary of the late Gene Roddenberry’s original ...

New Orleans (AP) — Next year's Essence Festival is getting a dose of music royalty from Prince. The "Purple Rain" singer-songwriter is headlining the 20th annual Essence, a celebration of black music and culture being held July 3-6 in New Orleans. Prince, who performed at Essence in 2004, also headlined this year's South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas. His newest single, "Screwdriver," debuted earlier this year. Still, Prince is best known for chart-topping hits like "1999," ''Cool" and "Purple Rain." Essence has been held every Independence Day weekend since 1995, when it marked the 25th anniversary »

Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »

Jeremy Renner is set to return for the next Bourne movie, in the summer of 2015...
The once-crowded blockbuster summer of 2015 is looking a little less packed than it once was. Independence Day 2, Star Wars: Episode VII and Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 are amongst the films that have vacated it so far. And whilst Ant-Man has moved in, there's still likely to be some jiggling to do before the finally line-up for summer 2015 at the movies is confirmed.
And you can add the follow-up to The Bourne Legacy to the list, too. Universal has confirmed that Bourne 5 is going to be released on August 14th 2015, and that Justin Lin - the man behind lots of Fast & Furious movies - is set to direct.
This year saw two films attempt to take down the White House, with the most recent being disaster master Roland Emmerich's White House Down. Although he famously destroyed the entire Presidential residence in one blow in 1996's Independence Day, Emmerich treats the title structure with much more reverence and care this time around. (Don't worry, he still beats the hell out of it.) Equally bloodied and bruised are White House Down's heroic duo, played by Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, who must take down the threat inside the Oval Office while rescuing the hostages trapped inside. It's one of Emmerich's most entertaining films to date, and now that it's available on Blu-ray, you can check it out for yourself in your very own home. Hit the jump for my review. Feature Although Emmerich may be best known for obliterating the White House, he takes his time doing so in White House Down. »

In the reader spotlight series we celebrate You, the reason The Film Experience keeps chugging along. Today we're talking to Michael Bina who just produced a well received short film! Let's meet him.
Nathaniel R: We met a couple years back at a guild screening for Coriolanus's tiny Oscar-qualifying run I believe?
Michael Bina: Yes, that’s right! I remember you... loved it?
Well, Vanessa Redgrave in it! Otherwise not so much. How long have you been reading the site?
I’ve probably been reading The Film Experience for a little less than a decade. I was a huge fan of the Academy Awards growing up, so I began reading Oscar blogs. I stumbled upon yours and loved your insight on films, and just the way you wrote about them. The site's great at showcasing all aspects of the industry (film, theatre, television).
I understand you recently produced a »

The Calgary Herald spoke to Quebec film commissioner Hans Fraikin about his recent meetings with Fox about X-Men: Days of Future Past planned return to the city to shoot some additional scenes, and in their report are a couple of very interesting tidbits. According to the site - and it seems unlikely that they would pluck this particular piece of information out of thin air - the movie, "is the second-most expensive movie ever produced by Hollywood studio 20th Century Fox, behind only Avatar." Whether that's a result of the star-studded cast or the CGI Sentinels is unknown, but that low-key teaser trailer clearly hid the majority of action! The site goes on to say that, "Fraikin also confirmed he is in talks with Fox to attempt to persuade the Hollywood studio to shoot the sequel to Independence Day in Montreal. If Fox decides to do it here, they would »

“I’m a goddamn American icon!”
Depending on where you stand on Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen represents either a group of enormously famous actors going back to salvage the goodwill they squandered in the middle entry of the franchise, or that same group of actors going back to where it all started just to prove they can still pull one over on us. If you’re bothered by even the mention of Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen may strike you as an unnecessary extension of a series that maybe should’ve been a one-film wonder, but it seems, at face value, to be a safer one, at that. Danny Ocean and his gang of cocksure criminals return to the Sunset Strip, this time to take down a Vegas casino »

Quebec film commissioner Hans Fraikin confirms to The Calgary Herald that Singer and some of the cast and crew will be back to "shoot some extra scenes" for the project with this new block of filming set to take several weeks.
Filming on the latest instalment in the X-Men franchise began in Montreal in mid-April and wrapped in late August. The paper also claims the project is "the second-most expensive movie ever produced by 20th Century Fox, behind only Avatar."
Fraikin is also championing Montreal as the location to shoot Fox's "Independence Day" sequel which is expected to go before the cameras in 2015. The film's director Roland Emmerich is also said to be championing that the production take place in Montreal. »

20th Century Fox has tapped Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) to direct the adventure picture The City That Sailed, now officially starring Will Smith (Independence Day). Scripted by Audrey Wells (The Game Plan), the story "centers on a father and daughter on the island of Manhattan as it breaks loose and sails across the Atlantic Ocean." With Smith as the father, I'll give you three guesses on who will likely play the daughter. Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Levy and Smith are both on board for The City That Sailed. Smith's name has been attached to this project since he wrapped on Men in Black 3, but now he's officially on board. There's no current information as to how this news affects Smith's schedule for a possible return to the Independence Day sequel, but since that film's release date was pushed back a year, perhaps there's still a chance. »

There’s been a lot of jiggling round of release dates again today following yesterdays news on Fifty Shades Of Grey and Independence Day 2. We can now confirm Jake Kasdan’s adult comedy Sex Tape and Scott Derrickson’s supernatural thriller Beware The Night have both been moved.
Both projects come from Sony, with the R-rated comedy now taking on Marvel comic adaptation Guardians Of The Galaxy and James Brown biopic Get On Up, all released on August 1 2014. Sex Tape, starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz, follows a couple who unfortunately misplace their kinky um… sex tape (terribly careless). Jack Black, Rob Corddry and Rob Lowe co-star.
Also, the Paranormal horror Beware The Night gains a prime summer release date, after being moved from January. Scott Derrickson’s new fright feature about cops, priests and demons stars Eric Bana, Oliva Munn, Sean Harris, Edgar Ramirez and is out July 2 2014.
