National Geographic's 'Killing Jesus': Tales from the Morocco set

8 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ouarzazate, Morocco. Officially, the Moroccan city of Ouarzazate is nicknamed "The door of the desert," resting south of the High Atlas Mountains and on the edge of the Draa Valley. Thanks to the presence of Atlas Studios, though, Ouarzazate is perhaps more appropriately known as The Hollywood of Central Morocco, or perhaps even The Hollywood of Morocco. Ouarzazate has a population of just over 50,000, but in late October of 2014, that population includes a disproportionate number of Jesuses, Judases and an absurd number of Marys, both Jesus' mom and of the Magdalene variety.  It's late October of 2014 and Ouarzazate is the beating heart of TV's Biblical world. "It's a very holy town right now," laughs Haaz Sleiman, one of the Ouarzazate Jesi -- Yes, that should be the name of a fantasy baseball team -- specifically playing the title role in National Geographic's "Killing Jesus," the project that has brought me to this region. »

'Furious 7': Learn How Weta Created a Digital Paul Walker

25 March 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Furious 7 hits theaters next weekend, it will be the last time the late Paul Walker will ever be seen on the big screen. The actor passed away in November 2013, while on a brief Thanksgiving hiatus from shooting Furious 7, which lead to the production shutting down for several months, not only for the actors to mourn their friend, but for the filmmakers to figure out how to give him a proper send-off. We reported last April that the actor's brothers, Cody Walker and Caleb Walker, served as stand-ins for Paul when production resumed, but now we have new details about how visual effects artists re-created the late actor.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Peter Jackson's Weta Digital effects house took unused footage from previous Fast and Furious movies to re-create a digital version of Paul Walker for the rest of the Furious 7 production. The process is »

First Look at Matt Damon on Mars in Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

20 March 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Later this year we'll get another sci-fi flick from director Ridley Scott, and we're hoping it's better than Prometheus. This time there's not the pressure of fitting into the Alien universe and living up to the hype as The Martian is based on the book of the same name by Andy Weir. Shooting is underway with the film slated for release this fall, and Weir himself seems to be involved on the set, or at least visiting the production as he's just posted a playful photo with Matt Damon. And if you look in the background, you can see a practical Mars rover on the set as well. It's hardly an official look at the film, but it's cool to see. Here's the photo from the set of Ridley Scott's The Martian from Andy Weir's Facebook (via Collider): The Martian is directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator, »

Watch: Video Tribute To Ridley Scott's 'Blade Runner' Plus Massive Behind-The-Scenes Gallery With Over 140 Photos

18 March 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ridley Scott has worked in many genres over his career —period pieces (“The Duellists”), war movies (“Black Hawk Down”), con man movies (“Matchstick Men”), sword and sandal epics ( “Gladiator”) and even soggy, feel-good pap (“A Good Year”). Last year’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” had a small faction of staunch vocal supporters, but his landmark sci-fi masterwork “Blade Runner” marks the last time the director made a film that could credibly be described as visionary.  I’ll never forget the first time I saw the film on VHS: the images of those towering, terrifying billboards adorned with ghastly, smiling faces burned into my impressionable young mind forever. Woefully misunderstood upon its 1982 release, Scott’s film has since found a devoted following: in fact, a sequel has recently been announced —it's to be directed by “Enemy" and "Prisoners" helmer Denis Villeneuve and with Harrison Ford confirmed to reprise his terrifically grizzled turn as. »

Cinderella opens to $132.4 million worldwide

15 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Opening to mostly mediocre reviews (read ours here), Disney’s Cinderella has had a whopping opening weekend.

Showing in just under 3,900 screens, Cinderella has taken $70 million domestically, with an extra $62.4 million from worldwide showings – giving it a grand total of $132.4 million, exceeding all expectations.

In terms of Disney’s other live-action reboots/sequels, Cinderella has achieved a bigger domestic opening than Maleficent… just. The hugely successful Maleficent (which grossed more than $600 million worldwide) opened to $69.4 million, but did have the advantage of being released in the more profitable June. However, it hasn’t quite reached the levels of Oz: The Great and Powerful ($79.1 million) or Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland ($116.1 million), both of which were released in March.

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her »

Disney’s Cinderella set for massive $100 million worldwide opening

12 March 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Cinderella will certainly be going to the ball this weekend, with Kenneth Branagh’s new live-action take of the classic Disney animated film set to have a huge opening across the globe.

Released in the Us and several international markets tomorrow, Cinderella looks set to win the weekend, especially in light of the lack of PG or PG-13 rated films in the cinemas at present. Opening in 3,845 cinemas on Friday (350 of which are IMAX screens), the film will preview tonight in many parts of the Us, with early estimates tracking the film at a $50-$60million opening, with Disney hoping both kids and adults will flock to see the film.

It will hope the tracking proves correct, as Cinderella will face competition from Lionsgate’s The Divergent Series: Insurgent and Warner Bros. comedy Get Hard over the coming weeks before the arrival of box-office behemoth Furious 7 »

Synopsis Unsheathed For Guy Ritchie’s Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur

11 March 2015 7:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just yesterday, we brought you the first set photo from Guy Ritchie’s medieval epic Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, which found star Charlie Hunnam posing opposite the director on the first day of production. Now, Warner Bros. has unsheathed a synopsis for the pic, which will serve to launch a franchise of six blockbuster films, all to be spun out of Arthurian lore.

According to the studio, which does not mention the official title of the film despite it being previously referred to as Knights of the Roundtable, Ritchie’s take will unfurl thusly:

The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Early Look at 43 Movies Vying for Best Picture

9 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As always, March is too early to get any kind of firm grasp on what will or won't be an Oscar contender come the end of the year, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to speculate. Last year, only two of the nine films I predicted out of the gates actually ended up receiving Best Picture nominations at the 2015 Oscars -- Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel -- which goes to show just how much we know in advance. In fact, looking at the films I had on the outside looking in, only Best Picture winner Birdman was listed. But hey, at least I had three of the top contenders in the early year conversation, that's something... rightc When it comes to this year, I feel even less certain than I did last year. I'm not sure that's saying a whole lot since only two of the 43 films on »

The Calloway Way – Why The New Alien Movie Might Disappoint

22 February 2015 5:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway is wary of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film…

When Neill Blomkamp released some of the artwork for his proposed Alien film, I was impressed – concept art for science fiction films is often better than the films themselves – and mentally filed it in my “great unmade films” drawer. It sat there alongside the Gladiator sequel scripted by Nick Cave, in which Russell Crowe’s character is resurrected and fights in various battles throughout history, Return of the Jedi directed by David Lynch (he was offered it, and turned it down because he did not want to helm a science fiction film where he was not in control of the material; ironically his next film would be an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. I cannot imagine what Lynch’s version of Jabba’s Palace would look like) and the unmade Jurassic Park sequel that featured dinosaurs, obviously, »
