Clark Gregg has been around Hollywood for a long time, only recently gaining the kind of success he deserves with his fan favorite role as Agent Phil Coulson in Marvel's Cinematic Universe. But, Gregg is also a talented director having helmed the adaptation of Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk's Choke starring Sam Rockwell and Angelica Huston. But now Gregg is back with his latest film, the comedy Trust Me. Likely basing the film on his experience in the movie industry, »

Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) has been working on a Steve Jobs biopic for a few years. It was recently revealed that David Fincher (The Social Network, Fight Club) was interested in directing the film as long as he could get Christian Bale to star. Then came news that Sony Pictures broke negotiations with Fincher after the director started making unreasonable demands. And while it was still possible that those negotiations would one day continue, THR just learned that the studio moved on and is now in talks with Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) to direct and Leonardo DiCaprio to star. Boyle and DiCaprio previously worked together on "The Beach." »

The first trailer for David Fincher's hotly-anticipated thriller Gone Girl debuted today, and it's yet another fantastic promo from a director who's served up some of the best mainstream Hollywood fare over the last two decades.
Many movies rely on marketing agencies to cut their trailer material, but in recent years Fincher has operated a little differently, getting involved himself from the get-go to help shape how his movies are sold. It shows; first looks for Fincher releases are often mini-movies in themselves, oblique and creative teasers designed to hook you in before a more accessible promo is released.
Digital Spy goes film-by-film with Fincher's trailer back catalogue to highlight 8 of his best promos below. We've excluded Alien 3 on the grounds that Fincher lost final cut to the studio and had little to do with the film by the time it was released.

Over the last 20 years or so, director David Fincher has established himself as one of the most consistent, stylistically filmmakers currently working in Hollywood today. He broke out with Se7en all the way back in 1995 and has crafted an immensely impressive filmography since, making movies like Fight Club, Zodiac, and The Social Network. It's been a couple years since his work was on the big screen, last making The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in 2011, but in just a few months he will be back to knock the socks off our feet with yet another enticing mystery, this time adapting Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel Gone Girl. And today we get our first full look at the movie, courtesy of Apple. Adapted into a film script by Flynn herself (marking her first foray into screenwriting), Gone Girl tells the story of married couple Nick and Amy Dunne (Ben Affleck, Rosamond »
Following a pretty chilling first look at the thriller Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel of the same name, the first trailer for the adaptation from The Social Network director David Fincher has arrived. The film tells the story of a woman (Rosamund Pike) who disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, with all the evidence pointing to her husband Nick (Ben Affleck). And even though the film is based on the book, readers will have a surprise because Flynn wrote a new ending for the film. From the looks of this trailer, Fincher has another fantastic thriller on his hands, and we can't wait to see it. Watch! Here's the first trailer for David Fincher's adaptation of Gone Girl, in high def on Apple: And here's the stylish teaser poster that doesn't even include the title (via Digital Spy): Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, »

When it was revealed earlier this year that David Fincher was in talks to reteam with The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin on a Steve Jobs biopic, excitement for the movie reached an all-time high, something which was hardly a surprise after the success of their last collaboration.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Ficher’s demands for his $10 million fee upfront and control over marketing (something which backfired for Sony on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo when they reportedly lost hundreds of thousands of dollars on metal, razor-blade-shaped one-sheets which couldn’t be used in cinemas) led to him parting ways with the project.
While sources tell the site that the director could still potentially re-enter negotiations down the line, they also state that David Fincher’s demands are “ridiculous”, adding: “You’re not doing Transformers here. You’re not doing Captain America. This is quality – it’s not screaming commerciality. »

If you haven't seen the trailer for "Gone Girl" yet, check it out over at Motion/Captured. I'm anticipating the film, particularly because it's interesting to me that Ben Affleck is sticking with the acting for a while, working with masters like Fincher and Malick rather than diving full force into directing only. It'll only help him moving forward behind the camera, and I think he's taking note of how buddy Matt Damon has been doing the same before saddling up to his first directorial effort. There's also word today that Fincher is off of the Aaron Sorkin/Steve Jobs project at Sony, which, if true, is a bit of a relief. He's an amazing director and nearly always nails the material, but I'm growing a touch weary of the prestige baiting and long for the old Fincher middle finger days of "Fight Club" and "Se7en," when the style and »

Holmes grieves as he and Watson track down an Anthrax threat in Elementary’s latest episode…
This review contains spoilers.
2.20 No Lack Of Void
Just last week I tutted at Elementary’s short memory when it came to introducing and then ignoring promising supporting characters, only for one of the first season’s more intriguing bit-players to reappear this week.
That Roger Rees’ Allistair turned up posthumously didn’t deprive us from seeing more of Holmes’ childhood thesp pal thanks to Elementary’s first experiment with magic realism. Holmes’ hallucinations were unexpected in a drama that’s so far existed on the bonkers side of real life, but not a jarring departure; it was more Six Feet Under than Ghost.
That said, it does change things. Opening a door into Holmes’ largely unreachable inner life introduces the possibility of more narrative tricks in Elementary »
One of the most irritating things in life has to be hearing a spoiler about a movie or TV show. Even just finding out there's a twist in a film can be the worst, just ask Roy Trenneman.
Bearing that in mind, you may want to avoid the following video, which collects some of cinema's most iconic movie endings, including The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects. To be fair, if you haven't seen or at least heard about these endings by now, you've only got yourself to blame. If you're unsure whether to click play, a full list of films is also below.
Films featured: Citizen Kane, Fight Club, Primal Fear, Signs, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chinatown, The Empire Strikes Back, Psycho (1960), Carrie (1976), Scream, The Sixth Sense, The Departed, The Shawshank Redemption, The Crying Game, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Planet of the Apes (1968), Planet of the Apes (2001), The Mist, »

With The Raid 2 arriving in UK cinemas too, James wants a word about violent movies...
The Raid 2 is now out in cinemas. I really recommend that you go and see this film. In fact, I urge you to stop whatever you're doing right now and head directly to the nearest movie theatre so that you can experience it immediately. True, it may not be showing for several hours, but that just means you'll get there early and that would be ideal. You're going to need time to settle into your seat and get comfortable before the carnage unfolds.
Still here? Get up, get out and go see The Raid 2. I am mentally slapping you across the face (with a dash of silat martial arts style) as I write this in the hope that I can telekinetically shock some sense into you »
There’s an art to crafting an awesome movie plot twist: get it right, and it can cement a movie in our minds forever more, as in examples such as Fight Club, The Usual Suspects, Psycho and so on.
Each of these movies completely confounded our expectations, and the revelation hit us like a freight train, also making subsequent viewings a lot more interesting. Then there’s the movies derailed by flat-out awful plot twists, like Signs, The Number 23 (admittedly a sucky movie anyway) and most recently, Now You See Me.
But what about those movies that can’t even string a water-tight plot twist together? These 10 movies, whether masterpieces or irredeemably bad, all failed to convince audiences of their conceits, either due to a lack of finesse in the script, or more tragically, due to ridiculously over-eager trailers giving away far too much information, as has »

Ever want to watch the all-time greatest film endings and plot twists all in on place? Today's your lucky day.
ScreenJunkies has released a supercut of the most jaw-dropping and talked about plot twists -- aptly titled "Spoiler Alert!" -- and, frankly, it's hypnotizing. From classics like "Citizen Kane" and "Chinatown" to current favorites like "The Mist" and "Fight Club," the three-and-a-half minute video has it all, and it's leaving us speechless (again).
Warning: We cannot emphasize enough how spoiler-heavy this video is. Watch at your own risk.

On March 31, 1999, Andy and Lana (née Larry) Wachowski's "The Matrix" hit theaters. That's 15 years ago today, and it was a pretty significant event. I think anyone who has read me for any period of time knows my affinity for and fascination with 1999 as an overall annus mirabilis at the multiplex. I've gone so far as to start the process of reporting a book because I can never quite shake how that year just seems to mean something. On one hand, it's personal. It was my first year of film school and going to a double feature of "American Beauty" and "Three Kings" with some fellow classmates one night, that kind of power punch will do a lot to galvanize someone in the early stages of embarking on a career in film. But it was an objectively amazing time. First and foremost, let's pause and consider that for a brief period, »

After years of appearing in a succession of truly terrible movies from How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days to Failure to Launch to Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Matthew McConaughey has done an amazing job of reinventing himself in the public imagination as a hugely talented and in-demand actor. Finally fulfilling the promise he showed in the early days of Dazed and Confused, McConaughey’s run of films involving Killer Joe, Mud and Magic Mike resulted in an Oscar last month for Dallas Buyers Club.
This so-called “McConaissance” has generated plenty of column inches and enormous amounts of media discussion, but the Interstellar star is not the only actor to have hit a rich vein of form of late after years of uninspiring films. While critics and the Academy have been falling over themselves to shower McConaughey in praise, these six actors have been quietly enjoying their own career renaissances. »
