Luke Owen with his top five movies of the summer…
Celebrating 60 years of destruction, the King of the Monsters made his return to the big screen in this American reboot to the classic series. Godzilla saw Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as a husband and wife duo who are trying to reunite after The Big G shows up and starts tearing through cities chasing after alien-like creature M.U.T.O.
Director Gareth Edwards clearly loved the classic Godzilla movies from the character’s 50s and 60s heydays as the movie was a call back to those films. It had a slow, methodical pace and it focused on the human characters and their dramas while Godzilla fought in the background as the ever looming presence and metaphor for nuclear war. Sadly, the movie only takes our fifth spot here as the human element (including »

For how many years has Hollywood endured the Ya novel onslaught? Five? Ten? When was Twilight? It’s strange to think of The Giver as merely the latest in a string of adapted young adult fiction given that its source material, Lois Lowry’s 1993 bestseller, precedes the publication dates of Divergent, City of Bones, and the Twilight saga. Like most of its cinematic contemporaries, The Giver squeezes its story into an angsty, dull, and poorly acted template, sapping any chance of inspiration out of its low-key science fiction concept.
Having not read Lowry’s novel, I can only presume she uses her social structure — a utopian future in which emotions are outlawed — to latch “forbidden” teen angst and romance onto the awkward feelings puberty brings with it. On the verge of graduation, three teenagers join the adult ranks of The Community, envisioned here as a Levittown straight out of Starship Troopers, »

Although it would like to be known for its consistently family-friendly approach and ability to squeeze childlike-joy out just about anyone, Disney’s reputation is mired by some less savoury elements.
For years the anti-Semitic views of studio founder Walt (who is, let’s not forget, currently in suspended animation) have been prevalent, while eagle eyed fans have discovered some rather raunchy, ‘accidental’ easter eggs; a nude woman in The Rescuers, dust spelling Sex in The Lion King and a rather phallic looking tower on King Triton’s castle on the VHS cover of The Little Mermaid. And that’s not even getting onto the issue of stealing ideas.
Some of the animation studio’s best loved films have become mired in lawsuits from authors, filmmakers and cartoonists they’ve been accused of flat-out ripping off. Normally the cases are dropped and if not they’re settled »

As CW’s Arrow spin-off The Flash draws closer, more and more of the pieces are clicking into place.
We already know several of the villains, and received a new teaser trailer late last week. Now, we’ve heard of another actor set to be joining the show.
Clancy Brown, who played Captain Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption and Sargent Zim in Starship Troopers, has joined the show as General Wade Eiling, known better as The General. Is there an army title he hasn't held on screen?
Brown is no stranger to comic book roles, having played Red-Hulk, Lex Luthor, Odin and Taskmaster in a long string of voice-acting roles.

The CW has been busy over the last few weeks with populating its upcoming series The Flash with exciting DC Comics characters, but this new addition just may take the cake. The character himself isn’t all that interesting or well-known, but the actor that will play him is. According to THR, The Shawshank Redemption, Starship Troopers, and beloved voice actor Clancy Brown has joined the series in a “pivotal recurring role.”
Brown will play General Wade Eiling a.k.a. The General, the head of a black ops army team pursuing Plastique (Kelly Frye), in hopes of turning her into a human weapon. The General is described as “a tall and imposing man with a face carved from years of duty.” He’s also a fanatic intent on protecting American interests around the world, and will have “ties to a central Flash character.”

Today on Trailers from Hell, "Robocop" and "Starship Troopers" screenwriter Ed Neumeier talks author Michael Crichton's 1973 directorial debut "Westworld." Medical student-turned-novelist Crichton’s directorial debut was the first of his cautionary futuristic-theme-park-gone-crazy thrillers (the second was Jurassic Park). The last picture produced by MGM before it stopped distributing movies became a huge popular hit and might have cut down somewhat on 1973 Disneyland admissions. »

‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ actress Marilyn Burns dead at 64 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre actress Marilyn Burns, the one cast member who manages to survive Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s low-budget 1974 horror cult classic, was found dead on Tuesday, August 4, 2014, at her home in the Houston area. According to her manager, "she was found unresponsive by a family member." The cause of death remains unclear. Burns (born on July 5, 1950, in Erie, Pennsylvania) was 64. The Houston-raised Marilyn Burns began appearing in films in the early ’70s. She had a bit part in Robert Altman’s Houston-filmed Brewster McCloud (1970), starring Bud Cort, Sally Kellerman, and Shelley Duvall, and was later cast in a supporting role in Sidney Lumet’s Austin-shot 1974 drama Lovin’ Molly; however, Burns was ultimately replaced by Susan Sarandon, reportedly remaining in the production as a stand-in for both Sarandon and Blythe Danner. Also in 1974, Marilyn Burns landed the »

There are certain eternal questions in life that I doubt we’ll ever find an answer to. Who was Jack The Ripper? What happened on the Mary Celeste? How have there been five Resident Evil movies? And the question we’re going to look at now, why do they make kids' cartoons out of very adult movies?
In some ways it makes sense. As a kid, there are very few moments more exciting than watching an ultra-gory action film or a dodgy sex comedy that you know you’re not supposed to be watching. Everyone knows this, the studios especially. But surely they can’t be that blatant about it? You can’t make a show for kids based on RoboCop! Have you seen RoboCop? Won’t somebody please think of the children?
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. »

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…
Jones finished shooting Warcraft a few months ago, so hopefully we’ll be seeing some teaser footage or images from the film as Sdcc continues.
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, »

With technology rapidly advancing in the world of filmmaking to the point where almost every theatrical genre film or big-budget blockbuster heavily relies on the use of CGI, it’s nice to see guys like Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alec Gillis of Amalgamated Dynamics still so committed to the artistry and necessity of practical effects in moviemaking.
Both icons in the world of special effects, Woodruff Jr. and Gillis have collectively worked on a vast array of hugely successful and influential films throughout their careers, including The Terminator, Aliens, Cocoon, Predator, The Monster Squad, Pumpkinhead, Demolition Man, Tremors, Alien 3, Starship Troopers, Hollow Man, Jumanji, Spider-Man, Avp: Alien vs. Predator, and X-Men: First Class.
One of the recent projects the duo were a part of was Universal’s 2011 premake of The Thing, in which they were asked to create stunning practical creature effects to be used throughout production. Unfortunately, for both Woodruff Jr. »

Following strong notices for their breakout zombie film "Undead" in 2003, Australian genre filmmakers Michael and Peter Spierig teamed with Ethan Hawke and Sam Neill for the vampire action flick "Daybreakers" back in 2009. Five years on, they're back for their third feature "Predestination" which also stars Hawke along with Noah Taylor and Sarah Snook.
Dropping horror in favor of complicated sci-fi, this might be their best effort yet. Based on "Starship Troopers" author Robert A. Heinlein’s 1960 short story "All You Zombies," the action follows a Temporal Agent who must pursue a criminal that has eluded him throughout time and at the same time ensure his own survival.
Actress Sarah Snook has scored a strong reputation here in Australia for her work on the TV series "Spirited" and films like "Not Suitable for Children". Here she takes on what appears to be a meaty role where half the time they've adjusted »

In case you haven’t been following our Twitter feed you may not have realised that London’s Earl’s Court found itself transformed into the epicentre of all things cult as it hosted the Showmasters annual London Film and Comic Con. Two guests that Thn were very excited to meet were none other than Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer, a.k.a Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores from Starship Troopers.
News has recently broken that a remake of Paul Verhoven’s 1997 cult classic is in the works. After the sequel’s failed to capture the magic of the first film, we at Thn are a little uncertain how you can make the original any better. We seized the opportunity to ask the stars if they’d be up for a reunion. Here’s what they had to say.
Casper Van Dien: If they asked me I would be more than honoured. »
