Roland Emmerich confirmed to take the helm on World War II project Midway

20 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Cannes Film Festival yesterday saw another unveiling. Independence Day director, Roland Emmerich, has officially been confirmed to take the helm of the World War II project, Midway, which he will also co-produce.

The Battle of Midway in the South Pacific was a decisive naval battle in June 1942, six months after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The U.S. Navy defeated an attacking fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy near Midway Atoll after U.S. codebreakers were able to pinpoint the time and place of the attack. The damage to the Japanese fleet was so extensive that it never recovered and military historians regard the battle as a turning point in the war.

This won’t be the first time The Battle of Midway has been covered on film, back in 1976, Universal’s epic “Midway,” starring Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, James Coburn, Glenn Ford, Hal Holbrook, Toshiro Mifune, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Baby (1973)

20 May 2017 10:51 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Only in the ‘70s, man, only in the ‘70s. Long before PC culture invaded popular entertainment, movies were the haven of the taboo, a safe house for ideas two steps from the norm. Now, many of these films of perversion were relegated to grindhouse theatres and the third feature of a Dusk Til Dawn showing at your local Drive-In. But occasionally a film will crawl towards the mainstream and plop itself down, bawling for attention. The Baby (1973) is one such film, so twisted in conception that it’s hard to believe it would be released in any decade. Except the ‘70s of course, where you could even get the director of a Dirty Harry and a Planet of the Apes flick to helm it.

Distributed by Scotia International in March, The Baby was given a limited theatrical release; and that’s really for the best – as much as the film »

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Will End Caesar’s Story, But Not the Franchise

The Planet of the Apes prequel series is by far the best movie franchise currently playing cinemas, Star Wars excluded. A new trailer for War For the Planet of the Apes teases a conclusion with the tagline “Witness The End.” Does this mean the third installment will be the last? The War For the Planet […]

Cannes Film Review: Todd Haynes’ ‘Wonderstruck’

18 May 2017 1:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Todd Haynes is a transcendent filmmaker, one who can haunt your imagination and carry you away, but in “Wonderstruck,” there’s more artistry in his storytelling than there is in the intricate mechanical story he’s telling. We’re watching a visionary humanist apply his luminous voice to a piece of emotional Tinkertoy. The film is based on an illustrated children’s novel by Brian Selznick, who wrote and drew “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” which served as the basis for Martin Scorsese’s widely praised but — to me, at least — frenetic and overwrought gimcrack fantasy “Hugo” (2011).

Wonderstruck” is a supple and flowing experience by comparison. Haynes, working from a script by Selznick, guides and serves the material with supreme craftsmanship. For a while, he casts a spell. Yet one of the film’s noteworthy qualities is that it creates a nearly dizzying sense of anticipation, and the payoff, regrettably, »

Common Traits Among the Alien Films

17 May 2017 8:36 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Join us as we take an in-depth look at the commonalities across all 7 films of the Alien franchise as we prepare for the release of Alien: Covenant later this week.

What makes a movie franchise a franchise and not just a collection of similar films? Commonalities.

Sometimes it’s just a character by himself that makes it a franchise (Tarzan). At other times a common theme (Final Destination). Sometimes films of a franchise will share a common style if they are all made by the same filmmakers (Jason Bourne), or expand on a singular story (Star Wars). For others, it's a gimmick or hook (Home Alone), or a premise (Planet of the Apes).

The Alien franchise doesn’t necessarily fit into any of these categories; although it has featured all of these traits at one time or another. It started in 1979 with the release of Alien, a sequel came seven years later in Aliens, »

Watch The Stunning Final Trailer for 'War for the Planet of the Apes'

16 May 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

We've seen a remarkable character develop before our eyes in the rebooted Planet of the Apes series. Caesar (Andy Serkis), an ordinary chimpanzee, inherited increased intelligence from his mother, who'd been the subject of an experiment during her pregnancy. In Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we saw how he was raised by a well-intentioned scientist (James Franco) before he is imprisoned in a primate shelter. Cruel treatment by humans eventually prompts him to lead an uprising, freeing many of his fellow apes, who then escape into a forest. Ten years later in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar still leads the ape colony. The apes have established a fragile, wary peace with the nearest human community, which has been decimated by a deadly virus. As things develop...

Video: New War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer

16 May 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

A new trailer for War of the Planet of the Apes has arrived from 20th Century Fox. Continuing the series of prequels that started with Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and then followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014), the battle between humans and apes has finally started.

After the surprise success of the first two films, War for the Planet of the Apes is highly anticipated especially now that the conflict between the two species has reached boiling point. Leader of the apes Caesar (Andy Serkis) is becoming increasingly more intelligent and articulated. With some tasty looking action scenes to boot this could prove to be another hit.

Starring Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson and Steve Zahn, War for the Planet of the Apes reaches UK cinemas 14th July 2017. »

The trailer also features a scared, young girl with a teddy bear whom Caesar and his associates pick up on their journey to a final battle, but it’s unclear who she is. »

War for the Planet of the Apes final trailer released, producer says it will close out a trilogy

16 May 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from yesterday’s teaser, 20th Century Fox has now unveiled the final trailer for the hotly-anticipated War for the Planet of the Apes; check it out here…

Meanwhile, speaking to CinemaBlend, producer Peter Chernin has discussed the third chapter in the rebooted series, stating that it will close out the Caesar trilogy after Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

“We’ve always looked at these three movies as a trilogy. Not to say it’s the end of the Apes movies because what we’re trying to do is get as close up to the original Planet of the Apes. But we were always looking at these three movies as a trilogy, and I think this movie in some ways completes this trilogy from when Caesar was born. What we’re trying to do with this movie is bring »

War For The Planet Of The Apes Final Trailer & Poster: Together Apes Strong

16 May 2017 6:56 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s been a long road to get to this point in the Planet of the Apes franchise. Back in the late-2000s, when it was announced that Fox would be returning to this beloved series, it wasn’t met with a whole lot of enthusiasm. I mean, did we really need to know how the planet got overrun with apes? It was one of those things that seems to fare better in our imaginations than on celluloid. Right?

Well, call me stupid, because I couldn’t have been more wrong. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a thoughtful little story, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was a fittingly Shakespearean evolution of the tale. In fact, so good was the latter film that it went down as one of my favorite films of the year. Needless to say, fans have been eagerly awaiting the conclusion »
