Best known for his roles in X-Men: First Class and Antiviral, Caleb Landry Jones is a young star on the rise. He’s got an impressive slate of films coming up (God’s Pocket, Low Down) and today, he’s added one more in the form of Roland Emmerich’s Stonewall.
Already set to star Jeremy Irvine as Danny, a “a young man who experiences a political awakening during the Stonewall riots,” the film will see Jones co-star as Orphan Annie, “an eccentric gay street hustler who participates alongside Danny in the uprising.”
If you couldn’t already tell, Stonewall will focus on the riot that broke out on June 28, 1969 at the titular inn, where gay and lesbian patrons stood up to police who raided the bar.

Very soon you will be hearing Vivek Oberoi on screen.
In fact, his performance prompted Sony Pictures to approach him to fill in the Hindi shoes for Spider-Man’s enemy “Electro” – the super villain with the power to control electricity.
According to the Times of India, Oberoi stated the unexpectedness:
Oberoi described the challenge and how the project was unique for him; according to Toi:
“It was two days’ work but tougher than I had imagined. »

Besides starring as Bodhi in the Point Break remake, it looks like Gerard Butler has signed on to another project. This one is a sci-fi flick from Dean Devlin. That name sound familiar? Well, it should. Devlin is not only a well-known producer but also a writer on Universal Soldier, Stargate, and Independence Day. What.s interesting here is that Devlin will be taking on his first directing gig. He serves as scribe as well. Butler will star in the film that centers on .a satellite »

The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)
And so the essential twist that led to »

Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars as Mike, a hapless, lazy stoner, happy with his boring life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart – Twilight). However, unknown to Mike and everyone around him he’s actually a secret agent. When his past flashes before his eyes the realities of the responsibility of his power surface, especially when he’s called in to support a deadly government operation. Co-starring Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), John Leguizamo (Kick-ass 2), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Stone joins the cast as Victoria Lasseter.
With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) directing and Max Landis (Chronicle) behind the script this could go either way – brilliantly witty and action-packed…or a little lacklustre. We’ll have to wait and see.

The brilliant and hilarious stripper comedy Magic Mike, which sadly included no actual magic, was a bit of surprise hit when it first arrived in 2012. A sequel was quickly announced and now we have confirmation of the exact release date. The aptly titled Magic Mike Xxl will get people hot under the collar from 3rd July 2015. It’s a prime summer spot, especially in the Us where they’ll be celebrating Independence Day the very next day, and what better way to celebrate?
The original film was directed by Steven Soderbergh whereas the sequel will promote the first assistant director of Magic Mike, Gregory Jacobs, to the director’s chair. Channing Tatum is set to return, but there’s still no word on other cast members such as Matthew McConaughey. Tatum will also be contributing to the writing process, which is understandable as he used to work as a male stripper. »

Warner Bros. wants you to celebrate Independence Day 2015 with ripped abs, greased-up pecs, g-strings, and dollar bills. The studio has revealed that "Magic Mike 2" will be released July 3, 2015, according to Deadline. Channing Tatum is returning in the title role in the sequel to the surprise 2012 hit directed by Steven Soderbergh. It was inspired by Tatum's days as a male stripper; he and Soderbergh co-produced and helped finance the film themselves. Soderbergh's longtime collaborator Gregory Jacobs is directing this time around. The sequel -- reported to be titled "Magic Mike Xxl" -- will provide counter-programming to the usual summer blockbuster fare. "Terminator: Genesis" opens two days earlier, and other July 2015 openers include "Despicable Me: Minions" the Peter Pan adaptation "Pan," and Marvel's "Ant-Man." The original "Magic Mike" also starred Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello. It earned a huge $113.7 million domestically, and spawned a forthcoming Broadway musical. »

Attention women and gay men everywhere: Your American Dreams are about to come true.
Warner Bros. announced Tuesday that the hotly anticipated sequel Magic Mike Xxl will be released July 3, 2015, just in time for Independence Day. The original 2012 film was directed by Steven Soderbergh and starred Channing Tatum, and was loosely based on the actor’s own experiences as a young male dancer. Tatum is currently writing the sequel, which will be directed by Gregory Jacobs, Soderbergh’s assistant on the first film and many of his other work.
Hopefully Channing was able to get some inspiration Sunday night at »

I think that there’s a rule in Hollywood that movies that start with the word “American” must have amazing ensemble casts (see: American Hustle, American Beauty, American Pie, American Gangster, American Graffiti). This week, the action-comedy American Ultra adds three new members to an already bustling line-up: Sharon Stone, Bill Pullman and Arrested Development‘s Tony Hale. They join Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Justified‘s Walton Goggins, Topher Grace and John Leguizamo in a film for Project X director Nima Nourizadeh.
The low-budget Lionsgate movie, picked up for a cool $7 million in March, stars Eisenberg as Mike, a stoner and slacker living in a small town whose past as a highly-trained secret agent comes back to interfere with his new, quieter existence. He becomes the target of a top secret government operation, which naturally does not sit well with his girlfriend, Phoebe (played by Eisenberg’s Adventureland co-star, Stewart »

When it was originally announced that critical pariah Michael Bay was to be directing the big screen incarnation of the nostalgically popular 1980’s vehicular metamorphoses toys The Transformers, it seemed to be the perfect match of artistic vision and material. With large scale auto-centric set-pieces already scattered throughout his CV, recall the spectacular freeway chase from the otherwise ridiculous Bad Boys 2, and a penchant for a genuinely enjoyable sense of infectious fun, evident in apologists favourites such as The Rock and Armageddon, his pyrotechnic pornographic sensibilities would make real the plastic clashes between the Autobots and Decepticons in a way every big kid dreamed of.
A franchise on the verge of Extinction? No chance.
The notion that Age of Extinction is a “reboot” isn’t an altogether welcome one, because for all of the crass, ibuprofen accompanied volume control, and Nuts magazine incarnate issues scattered throughout Revenge of the »

Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich used to be an effective team, bringing movies like Stargate and Independence Day into theaters as screenwriters and producers. Alas, Devlin and Emmerich haven.t produced a film together since 2000.s The Patriot, and Devlin hasn.t written anything (apart from an episode of Leverage) since 1998.s "mutter the title under your breath, lest you be publicly scorned" blockbuster Godzilla. It looks like that drought is about to end pretty soon, as Heat Vision has reported that Mr. Devlin is not only writing but also directing what looks like a massive throwback to those Independence Days and Stargate nights. And he.s got Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen) helping out in the lead! Geostorm tells the story of Mr. Butler.s character, who.s described as: ".a stubborn but charming satellite designer who, when the world.s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, has to work together with »
Never one to let much time go by without a new movie entering development, action star turned romantic comedy mainstay turned action star again Gerard Butler has signed on to lead the cast of the upcoming sci-fi adventure film Geostorm.
Written and directed by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Godzilla), Geostorm will star Butler as a gruff but likable satellite designer. When the world’s climate regulating satellite array goes haywire, Butler is called in to prevent a man-made super storm from decimating the planet. Complicating things is the fact that, to do this, Butler will have to work closely with his estranged brother, whom he has not spoken to in years. A space mission is sent up in hopes of repairing ...

‘Go big or go home’ – that seems to be the approach Dean Devlin is taking to his feature film directorial debut, as he takes every dramatic buzz-worthy concept, hot-button topic, and Gerard Butler, and hurls them all into the midst of Geostorm.
Having previously co-written and produced huge productions such as Independence Day and Godzilla, Devlin is now ready to take the helm himself – with Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen) in the lead role. The actor will star as a satellite designer, in a presumably near-future version of the world, where the planet’s climate is controlled by these hi-tech machines patrolling the atmosphere. When one begins to malfunction, Butler and his estranged brother must race against the clock to fix it, before the earth is decimated by a man-made mega-storm. Oh, and there’s a presidential assassination plot to contend with, too.
Although it sounds very much like the big, »
