Gale Anne Hurd rose to the pinnacle of Hollywood by producing some of the biggest and brashest films in history, none more so than “The Terminator,” directed by her then-husband James Cameron. Yet when thinking about the current state of the movie business, Hurd referenced another one of Cameron's movies – “Titanic.” “They can see the iceberg coming,” Hurd told TheWrap at Comic-Con. Hurd is no longer on the ship. She has moved on to television, producing “The Walking Dead,” the highest-rated cable show in America. She will have no involvement in the upcoming reboot of “The Terminator,” nor does she. »

My geek overdrive continues to overwhelm me. But I’m not the only one.
Less than a week away from this year’s San Diego ComicCon (which opens its doors this Thursday, July 24th, and closes them on Sunday, July 27th) Entertainment Weekly joins the national geek fest that is summertime with a bang-up double-size issue featuring a cover shot of Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Evans as Captain America with Ultron looming behind them. The issue is a stuffed-to-the-gills San Diego Comic Con preview…
And I read every single page. Including the adverts.
Now I know how those fans at the 1976 Sdcc felt when Charles Lippincott (then head of Lucasfilm’s marketing, advertising and publicity department) showed some of the first production slides of Star Wars, and (writer) Roy Thomas and (artist) Howard Chaykin previewed their Marvel Comics adaptation of the film, because the cover story, »

In Woman in Gold, Holmes, 35, and Reynolds, 37, play a married couple and parents to three young children. While shooting around a reservoir in the San Fernando Valley, the two pushed a baby in a stroller, walking and talking. For the day on set, Holmes looked casual in a tank top, jeans and Converse sneakers. Reynolds was a bit more dressed up with a button-down tucked into khaki pants and brown loafers.
Directed by Simon Curtis from a screenplay by Alexi Katy Campbell, Woman in Gold follows octogenarian Jewish refugee Maria Altman (Helen Mirren), who is fighting to recoup artwork that belonged to her family that was lost during World War II. One of the pieces she’s hoping to retrieve is Austrian »
In the latest of our Close Up series we look at one of HeyUGuys’ most treasured directors. Currently killing the Python (for the last time) on stage Terry Gilliam’s vibrant imagination and brutal humour has gathered him up a legion of fans who follow his every cinematic move with delight.
Though with a director such as Gilliam choosing a ‘best of’ list could easily be solved by pointing a link to his IMDb page I have chosen the elements of his work which I like the most. There are many, many more excellent moments and themes from his films, but as we near the release of The Zero Theorem on Blu-ray and DVD (out on Monday the 21st of July folks) we look back at those moments which made us fans.

After a couple falls in love in movies, we fall in love with them. Take Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, who fell in love with big hair and neon clothes in 1998′s The Wedding Singer, again in 2004′s 50 First Dates, and this in Blended. What we love about these two goofballs is that they’re best buds in real life, with a chemistry that translates on screen. They’re both married with families now, but if they dated back in the day, we would’ve been beyond happy.

We’ll never let go of hoping that Titanic stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet will one day end up together. After Pretty Woman, we had more than one dream about Richard Gere showing up at Julia Robert‘s fire escape, and we strongly believe that Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling would make an even hotter Irl couple than »

Thirty years ago, a killing machine from 2029—assuming the form of an Austrian bodybuilder—arrived with a lethal directive to alter the future. That he certainly did. The Terminator, made for $6.4 million by a couple of young disciples of B-movie king Roger Corman, became one of the defining sci-fi touchstones of all time. Its $38 million gross placed it outside of the top-20 box-office releases for 1984, yet the film grew into a phenomenon, spawning a five-picture franchise that’s taken in $1.4 billion to date and securing a place on the National Film Registry, which dubbed it “among the finest science-fiction films in many decades. »

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.
I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »

In terms of having a pedigree, The Strain ticks all the critical boxes, and then some. I’m a huge fan of the work of Guillermo del Toro and this show is based on a series of novels that he and Chuck Hogan wrote. He also directs the opening episode, and Chuck Hogan also helped co-write it. What could possibly go wrong?
I was somewhat concerned that in the first couple of minutes this show managed to deliver at least two Wtf moments. But before I get to them, it’s worth noting that the arrival of an aircraft travelling from Germany to the USA where everyone is dead isn’t the most original opening for a TV series. Because that »

As digital comics have become a driving force of the medium, more publishers and creators have launched digital first lines of comics. How do publishers and creators deal with the unique properties of the web and tablet? How do readers react? Are they an evolution from webcomics or their own medium?

This fall the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the final showing of the groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building, the future location of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, at Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles.

Dancing on Ice may be over, but people who are missing their skating fix will be pleased to hear that the show's professionals are going on tour this autumn.
They will be joined by Dancing on Ice stars Brianne Delcourt, Andy Buchanan, Robin Johnstone, Mark Hanretty, Sylvain Longchambon, Maria Filippov, Frankie Poultney, Alexandra Schauman and Lukasz Rozycki, with more skaters expected to be announced in the future.

Is that you, Leonardo DiCaprio? While the 39-year-old actor may have shot to Hollywood heartthrob status after he appeared in the 1997 film Titanic, the Wolf of Wall Street star appears to have undergone a bit of a transformation as of late. Namely, he's morphing into Jack Nicholson. DiCaprio was snapped on the beach on Sunday playing volleyball with his 21-year-old girlfriend Toni Garrn, where he was photographed looking like the spitting image of the 77-year-old Oscar winner—so much so that one might easily do a double take. The Inception star was seen wearing his hair in an unkempt style similar to Nicholson's and even sported a goatee identical to the iconic thesp. He also rocked »
Over the past couple decades, there's been several attempts to adapt The Six Million Dollar Man into a feature-length film. As recently as 2011, Leonardo DiCaprio ("Titanic") was said to be in negotiations to star with Bryan Singer ("X-Men: Days of Future Past") set to direct, but that fell through. Also in 2011, screenwriter/director Kevin Smith ("Clerks") adapted his screenplay for The Six Million Dollar Man into a comic book. It was published by Dynamite Comics and was titled, "The Bionic Man." Now, tracking-board.com is claiming that the star and director of Lone Survivor will reteam for Universal's next attempt at making The Six Million Dollar Man film. "We’re hearing that Mark Wahlberg will star in Universal Pictures’ film remake of the 1970s sci-fi TV series The Six Million Dollar Man. The story follows an astronaut, Steve Austin, whose body is rebuilt with cybernetic technology after a traumatic injury from an aircraft crash. »
In an article over at Cinema Blend, Gabe Toro makes a case for abolishing the PG-13 rating on the back of the PG-13 recently handed out to Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables 3, the first installment in the franchise not to receive an R-rating. The reason given by the MPAA for the rating was due to "violence including intense sustained gun battles and fight scenes, and for language". The reason given by Stallone for the rating, however, was, "We want to reach as many people as possible. It's very close to an R, believe me, it's right there. But I think we owe it to the next generation. We thought we'd join that club for a while." Of course, he could have just given the reason without beating around the bush, which is We want to make more money at the box office. When the PG-13 rating was originally introduced »

On a balmy Wednesday in August 2012, Screen Rant visited the Detroit set of Steven Quale’s (Final Destination 5) latest natural disaster epic, Into the Storm, formerly titled Category 6 and Black Sky. Since Steven is something of a special effects mogul having worked as as second unit director for James Cameron’s Avatar and Titanic, Into the Storm is visually unique in that it’s a ‘found footage’ film, fast becoming a trendy subgenre in Hollywood.
Set in Oklahoma, the entire movie takes place in the span of a single day, after the fictional town of Silverton is ravaged by an onslaught of deadly tornadoes. Needless to say, there are those who seek shelter; while others run towards the vortex testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot. And there are is an adventurous group of high school ...

Regardless of your destination, holidays should be full of fun, excitement and of course, relaxation. One of the best ways to unwind whilst on the road is to kick back and watch a film from the comfort of your hotel bed, deckchair or plane seat. While there are some fantastic blockbusters and classic flicks to be seen, there are also some movies that you should evade at all costs when travelling. To help you avoid that niggling feeling of fear they may provoke, we’ve compiled this list of films that should never make an appearance on the ultrabooks of tech savvy travellers.
If you’re a young female traveller, Taken is not a good choice of holiday entertainment. This story involves young women in deep jeopardy while on holiday. While former CIA operative Bryan Mills (played by a mega tough Liam Neeson ) manages to rescue his holidaying daughter »
