Mike Colter says Luke Cage is “geared towards an adult audience”

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mike Colter is set to play Luke Cage in A.K.A. Jessica Jones next year before getting his own series shortly thereafter. We’ve already heard that Daredevil will be taking on a “dark and gritty” tone which is unlike the McU movies, but what can we expect from Luke Cage?

“It’s geared towards an adult audience, which is something that will be different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that you’ve seen before on the big screen,” he told IGN. “I’m excited about playing the character because I’ve read the comic books. They’re very detailed, gritty; the world they’ve written in the comic books is very clear. Marvel does a fantastic job about bringing human stories – because you’re telling big stories with a heart at the centre of it – and that’s what connects all of the characters to our audience members.

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has announced some big news about its slate of upcoming shows, as well as taking another big step in their outward expansion, having struck a deal to purchase True Detective director Cary Fukanaga’s new film.

In terms of its new show line-up, four big new series will get their debut through the summer: sci-fi show Between will air in May of this year, followed swiftly by the double-whammy of Sense8, the new show from The Matrix creators Lana and Andy Wachowski and Babylon 5’s J. Michael Straczynski, and the hugely-anticipated third season of Orange Is the New Black in June.

Then, on July 17th, the streaming service will unveil Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the prequel mini-series to the cult 2001 film of the same name, whose stellar cast includes Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm, Chris Pine, Jason Schwartzman, »

Kanye West Admits His Ego is His 'Biggest Achilles Heel,' Internet Calls Him a 'Loser'

22 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kanye West is back to having no filter.

The always outspoken 37-year-old rapper gave a lecture at the prestigious Oxford University on Monday, and true to form, gave us some gems that could only come from Kanye being Kanye. Speaking in "stream of consciousness," the "Only One" rapper opened up about everything from his egotistical reputation, getting overshadowed by Nicki Minaj on his own album, and why he considers intense The Matrix the "Bible of the post-information age."

But before you start calling him "crazy," Kanye admitted that he actually likes the term.

"That's one of my favorite ones ... to be called crazy," he said via Oxford University student newspaper The Tab. "People say I have a bad reputation. I think I've got the best reputation in the building. They want you to have a reputation of tucking your black nail polish into your pockets and sitting in the corner of the class, and not fighting »

Film Nerd 2.0 digs into the notion of 'what is appropriate' between the PG and R

2 March 2015 9:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been a strange couple of weeks of films with the boys. First, we had a period of almost three weeks where I didn't get to see them because of all sorts of different scheduling issues. The hardest part of adjusting to life as a divided family is making my peace with the very different way the kids and I spend time together now. I've gone from having hours with them every day to having a handful of hours every couple of weeks. It makes time feel much more precious, but it can add a layer of stress, as well, because I'm constantly aware of the ticking clock. I know the boys feel it, too. We talk when I don't see them, but it's not the same. You try having a serious conversation on the phone with a seven-year-old. It's just not satisfying, no matter what. Kids today don't really »

Release Date & Official Synopsis Revealed For The Wachowskis' Netflix Series 'Sense8'

2 March 2015 2:29 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Okay, so "Jupiter Ascending" was a total nightmare and let's never talk about it again, but for those who still hope that The Wachowskis can truly deliver the kind of original sci-fi fans have been waiting for since "The Matrix," they have another shot with Netflix's "Sense8." And it already sounds fucking bonkers. "We told Netflix we were like, 'We're only interested in doing this. It's going to be so hard, it's not very much money. We're only interested in it if we can do anything. And I mean anything. Like crazy psychic orgies with all sorts of different bodies.' And they were like, 'Yeah sure, cool great,' " Lana Wachowski said last month, with Andy adding: "It's science fiction but it's more about humanity. It's about everything...we have live births…Babies coming out of vaginas…" Um, okay. Now here's an actual synopsis that sounds a little more manageable, »

‘Man of Tai Chi’ energizes viewers through its visuals, not its cluttered story

21 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Man of Tai Chi

Written by Michael G. Cooney

Directed by Keanu Reeves

United States/China, 2013

The world of underground fighting is given the cinematic treatment yet again in Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi. Set in Beijing, the movie follows the exploits of a kind if slightly misguided young man named Tiger Chen Linhu (Tiger Chen), who works as a postal delivery man by day and practices Tai Chi with his master Yang (Yu Hai) during his time off. Tiger has been seduced by the controversial idea of demonstrating that Tai Chi can be used for pure combat, prompting him to enter a legitimate martial arts tournament. His unexpectedly impressive skills catch the eye of one Donaka Mark (Keanu Reeves), the multimillionaire owner of a security company who also organizes illegal fighting matches for the pleasure of a high paying, exclusive public. As Tiger is sucked into »

Watch: 7-Minute Video Counts Down Every Kill In 'John Wick'

18 February 2015 8:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He may have started his career playing a dim slacker in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” but the action genre is what solidified Keanu Reeves as a star, with turns in Kathryn Bigelow‘s zen surfer heist masterpiece “Point Break,” Jan de Bont‘s slick and fun “Speed” and, of course, the Wachowskis ’ influential genre mash-up “The Matrix.” It may be too early to place last year’s “John Wick” with Reeves’ highlights, but it’s not too soon to tally up how many people Reeves utterly destroyed on screen in the film. A video edited by Nick Dinizio, via Av Club, has brought together every single on-screen kill by Reeve’s one-man-wrecking crew, the eponymous John Wick. The final tally? 76. We’re no Reeves expert, but we’d wager that’s the most kills ever credited to one of his characters, with the exception of the “Matrix” series (though »

John Wick: The Most Kick@$$ Movie of 2014 You Probably Didn’t See

17 February 2015 4:23 PM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

John Wick has come to VOD and home video, and if you haven’t seen it, you really fucking should, seriously. Not since films like Equilibrium or A Better Tomorrow have I seen innovative “gun fu” executed onscreen with such passionate detail, and I’ll bet, neither have you. If I am preaching to the choir, you may feel free to get off here, if not then bear with me for a moment.

Before I go any further I should note that what prompted me to go on this tangent is that I’m truly tired of seeing entertaining movies going unnoticed due to weak marketing; that and I had asked almost all of my die hard action fan friends if they had seen John Wick and they either had not seen it or was otherwise unsure of which movie I was referring to.

Box Office: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Torches Records With $94.4 Million Debut

16 February 2015 7:37 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fifty Shades of Grey” ensnared moviegoers over Presidents Day weekend, shattering records and heating up the box office with a staggering $94.4 million debut over the four-day holiday.

That easily trumped the previous high of $63.1 million set by “Valentine’s Day” in 2010. The film took advantage of Valentine’s Day falling over the holiday weekend, presenting itself as a saucy evening out for couples looking to spice up their love lives. It also became the fourth-biggest R-rated opening in history and the second-biggest for a female director behind “The Matrix Reloaded,” which was co-directed by Lana Wachowski. The latter record is the subject of some debate. “The Matrix” director was still billed as Larry Wachowski at the time of the film’s release and had not yet transitioned.

Fifty Shades of Grey” also did massive business internationally, debuting in 9,637 locations across 58 territories where Valentine’s Day is celebrated. It had earned »

Jupiter Ascending Movie Review

Title: Jupiter Ascending  Director: The Wachowskis Starring: Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tuppence Middleton, Terry Gilliam. ‘Jupiter Ascending’ is the latest tandem cinematic production by The Wachowskis. The American sibling film directors-screenwriters-producers, mainly known for ‘The Matrix’ series, present their ultimate feature: a space opera. Beyond Earth, beyond our Sun, one family has ruled life on every habitable planet in the universe for millennia: The House of Abrasax.

Why Original Science Fiction is Dead

10 February 2015 11:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on the death of original science fiction…

Jupiter Ascending has arrived and is pretty much been the bust we all thought it would be. Needless to say I doubt it will even come close to breaking even, and I’m not shedding a single tear for the Wachowski siblings who should have learned better after their past six or so movies. It seems now like original science fiction is a graveyard where no movies perform as well as expected, and I believe I know the reason why:

Because most of the recent releases have sucked, or they aren’t even original to begin with. Save for Edge of Tomorrow and Gravity, most of the original science fiction releases over the past few years have been pretty bad, or just macramés of other science fiction movies.

I point to my first example – Pacific Rim. I don’t care what »

Jupiter Ascending Review

10 February 2015 7:24 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Wachowski’s are pushing the limits on their own M. Night career path (which conveniently runs the same timeline), and Jupiter Ascending will hopefully mark the end of the tailspin, and we can finally say that 11 years is long enough to throw good money after bad.

The trailer for the film about a “regular Joe” girl from Earth, Jupiter (Mila Kunis), who gets wrapped up in the machinations of aliens who apparently control much of the universe, seemed to have hints at a return to what made The Matrix the kind of effort that would get people to throw hundreds of millions of dollars at you, but it has far more in common with the two sequels (and everything else they’ve done).

Worse, it has quite a lot in common with so many other films that you’d be hard-pressed to mention them all, and is moreover laughably littered with tired genre staples. »

Wachowski Siblings Likely To Distant Themselves From Blockbuster Scene; Four-Hour Cut Of Cloud Atlas Deemed Incredible

10 February 2015 12:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the course of their long and eclectic career, Lana and Andy Wachowski have gained a reputation as filmmakers who tend to paint with broad strokes, creating cinematic universes riddled with creativity and imagination. It’s a passionate drive that has been tapered by studios in the past, all in the effort to engineer a feasible, two-hour long experience to attract as wide an audience as possible. But this concession often clips said film’s proverbial wings.

According to Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, this stifling effect evidently occurred within the pair’s Cloud Atlas, after he revealed that an extensive four-hour long version of the time-hopping epic exists, and tells the inspiring store free from compromise.

Their film reviews have been brutal, and everything after ‘The Matrix’ didn’t go well, but if you look at the earlier cuts of their films before they had to jam them down to 120 minutes, »

Box Office Democracy: “Jupiter Ascending”

10 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The Wachowskis might never reach the heights of The Matrix ever again and, as someone who was 15 when The Matrix was released, maybe it wasn’t that good to begin with—but the films are always wildly ambitious. While Jupiter Ascending fails on many levels, and the script would be generously called hot nonsense, I would much rather see the Wachowskis fail than I would like to see Michael Bay “succeed” at his style of filmmaking. Jupiter Ascending is a film full of interesting ideas and while not all of them get properly explored or pay off in the ways I would like they’re frequently fascinating to think about and that’s way more fun than so many of the incarnations of slow motion explosions I’ve seen in movies this decade.

I appreciate all of the world building behind Jupiter Ascending but the way they give us exposition »

Movie Review – Jupiter Ascending (2015)

9 February 2015 11:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jupiter Ascending, 2015.

Written and Directed by The Wachowskis.

Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie RedmayneDouglas Booth and Tuppence Middleton.

Synopsis:

In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute caretaker gets targeted by a ruthless son of a powerful family that live on a planet in need of a new heir, so she travels with a genetically engineered warrior to the planet in order to stop his tyrant reign.

If I subscribed to the adage of ‘so bad it’s good’ then Jupiter Ascending might have been one heck of a fun time at the cinema; however, I do not and will never succumb to that way of thinking; so this latest film from the Wachowskis was an unmitigated disaster of galactic proportions. A film so bad and in which every aspect is so poorly handled, no one walks away unscathed – the most afflicted being the paying audience. »

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Flops: Why the Wachowskis’ Failure Is Bad for Movies

8 February 2015 1:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Be careful what you wish for.

Originality is a virtue in most creative pursuits, but in Hollywood, it will always be less appealing to studio bosses than more of the same. Audiences and critics often decry the sequels and franchises that flood multiplexes, but when filmmakers like the Wachowskis answer their calls for something original and innovative with a film like “Jupiter Ascending,” they’re often rewarded with a cold shoulder. With a production budget of $179 million, not to mention tens of millions spent to promote the science-fiction adventure, and an opening of only $19 million, “Jupiter Ascending” will likely be one of the year’s biggest flops.

“Audiences are kind of reticent to take a chance on something they don’t know or understand,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “They marketed the heck out of this movie, and it was still tough to bring people through the door. »

Two Hollywood Flops in One Weekend at the Box Office

7 February 2015 1:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not often that Hollywood releases two major theatrical bombs on the same weekend. But that’s what happened when “Jupiter Ascending” and “Seventh Son” both crashed in U.S. theaters on Friday.

Warner Bros.’ “Jupiter Ascending,” starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, is quickly falling in box office estimates to a skimpy $18 million opening. With a budget of $175 million, the Wachowskis’ sci-fi tentpole could lose tens of millions barring a dramatic turnaround overseas.

The forecast for Universal and Legendary’s long-delayed “Seventh Son,” starring Jeff Bridges, isn’t much brighter. The medieval fantasy tentpole has a projected loss of $85 million, as Variety exclusively reported this week, despite earning $82 million at the international box office. It’s on track for only $6.6 million in its U.S. debut.

Neither of the B.O. casualties are a shock — both pics were long-delayed due to poor tracking, and Paramount’s “The Spongebob Movie, »
