Kung Fu Panda 3 bumped to 2016, escapes Star Wars

11 December 2014 10:36 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A second DreamWorks Animation movie has been shifted from its 2015 release date, as Kung Fu Panda 3 moves away from The Force Awakens.

DreamWorks Animation's schedule has been a little bit erratic over the past year or two, as the firm has switched dates, delayed films, and in at least one case - Me & My Shadow - dropped a film from its announced line-up altogether.

The studio had planned a couple of years' back to release up to three films a year, but since it revealed that, 2014 is the only year it's done so. Even then, it involved a switcheroo between Home and The Penguins Of Madagascar.

It's 2015 slate originally had three films on it. Home is the next one, having been moved to March 2015. But it also had B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherwordly Operations in there. That, however, has now been delayed, with no new release date given. »

Thn Turns 11! A Look Back At Our Favourite Films – Batman Begins (2005)

25 November 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If we go back before the huge success of The Dark Knight (2008) and the media-hyped excitement of The Dark Knight Rises (2012), there still lives a pure gem from Christopher Nolan in the shape of Batman Begins (2005).

Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) brought our cave and mansion dwelling hero to the big screen in a way no-one had ever expected and those two movies, very specifically, still stand up to the endlessly changeable tests of time. When Joel Schumacher took up the reigns for the likes of Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997), none of us ever thought that the Bat-man would make such an ambitious return some years later when Christopher Nolan turned up with an absolute game-changer for both his back catalogue and the superhero film industry.

Batman Begins remains one of the best of the last 11 years with a truly tremendous origin story that’s swathed in truth, »

‘The Crow’ Victims, aren’t we all

24 November 2014 5:26 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If the tragic mythology of Brandon Lee’s on-set death or one of the best 1990s soundtracks isn’t enough to have turned you onto The Crow in 1994, then maybe the current resurgence of comic book and graphic novel adaptations will do the trick. For a film steeped in a dingy combination of mid-90s grunge, steam punk, and goth culture The Crow has a surprising amount of staying power.

Alex Proyas released one of his two best films (alongside 1998’s Dark City) in 1994 and for impressionable comic book nerds, this author included, around the world it proved a watershed, picking up where another Alex – Alex Cox – left off in the early ‘80s with the punk rock wackiness of Repo Man and dystopia of Sid and Nancy.

Proyas’ music video background shows through in The Crow. Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine, and Pantera were not only staples of the decade, »

Satanic Sunday: Cults devoted to the Devil

26 October 2014 9:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cloaked in hooded robes, hell-bent on destruction and ready to sacrifice innocents to please their master- worshipers of the Devil are an easy bunch to stereotype in popular portrayals. Ranked from worst to best, the extent to which they work with or against cliché and manage to be entertaining on film is profiled in the following list. This discussion does contain some spoilers!

Daniel Stamm’s “The Last Exorcism

The Last Exorcism (2010)

The Last Exorcism builds upon the skepticism of its main character, a man who performs exorcisms to give religious zealots peace of mind and as a social service to prevent any real harm to people accused of being possessed. The alleged possession and abuse of a timid country girl occupies most of the film, with a cult showing up in its final frenzied moments. Keeping the characters involved with this cult a secret, it can still be said »

Yes, Constantine Is a Show About a Man Who Fights Demons, But I Didn’t Believe a Second of It

23 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I didn't believe a second of NBC's Constantine, adapted from DC Comics' Hellblazer series. That might seem a strange complaint given that the story concerns an exorcist/demonologist (Matt Ryan) who travels the world, battling demons who've possessed innocent mortals while trying to right a tragic mistake. It must be a tone thing and a performance thing: The show's got the atmosphere and visuals things nailed down.As directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) and overseen by executive producers Daniel Cerone (Dexter, The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (Dark City, and way too many comics adaptations to list here), the first installment, which airs Friday night at 10 p.m., doesn't lack for production value. Possessed people swing and twirl through the air, hordes of cockroaches skitter, the ground opens up, the sky goes dark with purplish cumulus clouds, and a horned demon lunges from a hellmouth, »

‘Humans’ Cast Includes William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson & Neil Maskell

15 October 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We recently reported that AMC has teamed up with Kudos and Channel 4 for a drama series called Humans that takes place in an alternate reality in which families own advanced robotic servants, one of whom begins to act of its own will—a premise that might call to mind images of I, Robot or Bicentennial Man. Now the cast of Humans has been revealed and fans of Dark City and Kill List should be pleased.

Press Release – “William Hurt (A History of Violence, Damages), Katherine Parkinson (The It Crowd, The Honourable Woman), Tom Goodman-Hill (The Devil’s Whore, Mr Selfridge), Colin Morgan (Merlin, The Fall), Rebecca Front (The Thick Of It, Just William), Neil Maskell (Utopia, The Mimic) and Gemma Chan (Dates, Fresh Meat) are to star in Humans – the ambitious new co-production from Channel 4, AMC and Kudos.

Who Was Charles Dance’s Character Originally Supposed to Be in Dracula Untold?

12 October 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

The following contains spoilers for Dracula Untold and talks about specific characters as well as a character who never made it to the screen. If you haven't seen the film yet, don't say I didn't warn you.

Dracula Untold marks the end of a long journey for the script formerly known as Dracula: Year Zero. Its progress has been well chronicled here at Shock, since the film has been in development since the birth of this site back in 2007. Initially, it was going to serve as a directing vehicle for Dark City and I, Robot's Alex Proyas and, for a spell, Sam Worthington was circling to star as Vlad (aka "Dracula").

Shelf Life: Dark City

14 September 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. With The Crow, director Alex Proyas made a huge mark on the main stream showing a lot of promise with his signature style and dark tone. While the likes of I, Robot and Knowing have seen his styleget diluted throughout the years, it was his third feature that showed Proyas at his best, and gave us a great sense of what he could achieve. That movie was 1998's Dark City. One full year before The Matrix (which also used some of the same sets), Dark City explored many similar themes and even shared many plot beats with The Wachowski's sci-fi classic, but while that movie went big and flashy, Dark City went smaller and deeper, with Rufus Sewell's John Murdoch discovering the city »

V For Vendetta’s James McTeigue Signs On To Direct Alien Sleeper Cell

5 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wachowski’s golden boy, James McTeigue, has joined a new project from a new studio – Alien Sleeper Cell. Doesn’t that title give you the most delightful chills? Alas, it’s got nothing to do with xenomorph Alien franchise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will capture the same tone as The Bourne Identity and TV show The Americans. But in an alien invasion-style set-up. Consider us intrigued!

While there’s scant details about Alien Sleeper Cell, it’s known that McTeigue will direct the flick from a script by up-and-comer Morgan Davis Foehl. Foehl just completed work on Michael Mann’s Cyber script. As it stands now, new production outfit Scanbox Studios are currently putting together financing and brokering international deals for the pic. Prime Universe Films’ Adrian Askarich who recently finished work on Fox’s Hitman: Agent 47 will co-produce, and Felipe Linz will join as executive producer. »

Faerie Evil: The Making of Maleficent

Trevor Hogg chats with director Robert Stromberg, production visual effects supervisor Carey Villegas, visual effects supervisors Seth Maury and Kelly Port, digital effects supervisor Darren Hendler, and previs supervisor Mark Nelson about reviving a Disney classic…

“There are not many production designers/visual effects people who have made the leap which doesn’t make sense to me because it seems like the perfect breeding ground to moving up into directing,” reflects filmmaker Robert Stromberg who started as a matte painter and became the Oscar-winning production designer for Avatar [2009] and Alice in Wonderland [2010].  “On Master and Commander [2003] I met Peter Weir and we hit it off.  I came in as a Visual Effects Supervisor and spent so much time with Peter that I became a liaison between him and Ilm.   We started talking about other things especially about characters and what it is like to direct.  I learned so much from »

First Artwork And Synopsis For Alex Proyas' Gods Of Egypt

Fans have become a bit jaded when it comes to these mythology-based fantasy epics (thanks Clash/Wrath Of The Titans), but can Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City), and a very impressive (though decidedly non-Egyptian looking) cast change that?

‘Dracula Untold’ First Look Image & Poster: Dracula Begins

16 June 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Not too long ago, NBC premiered a new Dracula series, featuring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the title character. The TV show re-imagined Bram Stoker’s iconic vampire as being more of a dark superhero, who faces off against an evil order hell-bent on (secretly) controlling the world – and though it had camp entertainment value, it failed to attract the viewership numbers required to secure a second season. We’ll see if Universal has more luck with its cinematic re-imagining, Dracula Untold (see the first look image, above).

Dracula Untold was, once upon a time, formerly known as Dracula Year Zero, with Sam Worthington set to star and Alex Proyas (Dark City) onboard to call the shots. The basic premise is still the same ...
