27 July 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Imagine being a custodial worker in a bunker that’s the last livable place on Earth. The air outside is unbreathable, and a select group of humans are in cryogenic slumber around you.

Set to come out in the spring of 2015, Air is the first feature film from Skybound Entertainment.

26 July 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Doctor Strange, based on the popular Marvel Comics character, will be included in the Marvel Studios 'Phase Three' production slate along with Ant-man and the third Avengers installment.

Joaquin Phoenix reportedly being courted for Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'

25 July 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Well, maybe Benedict Cumberbatch really is just in Comic-Con for "The Penguins of Madagascar" and "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies." Though the "Star Trek Into Darkness" star had been strongly rumored for the role of Doctor Strange in Marvel's upcoming film (which will be directed by Scott Derrickson), The Wrap is reporting that Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to take the part. If it pans out (and assuming it's not just smoke and mirrors, which it could be), this would be a real coup for Marvel. Phoenix has more cachet than just about every other actor tapped for major roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, save for maybe Robert Downey Jr. Naturally it's all speculation now, but where there's smoke, there's surely fire and this news coming on the eve of Marvel's big Hall H presentation at Comic-Con signals that the breaking news »

Update: Joaquin Phoenix In Talks To Play Doctor Strange For Marvel And Scott Derrickson

25 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Marvel Studios are sure to have plenty of big announcements in mind for us at their panel tomorrow, and one of them could potentially be confirmation of this very story as they narrow in on their choice for Doctor Strange! The Wrap reveals that Gladiator and Her star Joaquin Phoenix "has been mentioned most often for the coveted superhero role" and "while insiders caution there is no deal in place yet, multiple sources say Phoenix is in consideration and has had discussions." If it seems surprising that the actor - who shied away from playing Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice - then you obviously don't know Marvel all that well as they're known for making unconventional casting choices and signing up actors you would never expect to see in this type of movie! This isn't confirmed of course and should be viewed as a rumour for »

New Images Arrive From 'The Hobbit 3,' 'Exodus,' 'Goosebumps' & Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck'

18 July 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With summer starting to wrap up (after "Guardians Of The Galaxy" in two weeks, blockbusters get considerably thinner on the ground), it's time to start looking even further ahead to big movies planned for the fall, or even for next summer. And happily, with Comic-Con just around the corner, the studios have obliged, releasing a slew of images for some new upcoming movies. First up is "Exodus: Gods & Kings," Ridley Scott's first attempt at the Biblical epic. The first live-action big-screen version of the story of Moses since "The Ten Commandments," Scott's picture is taking the big-budget "Gladiator"-style approach, but has drawn controversy due to casting Caucasian actors in Jewish and Egyptian roles, and for casting Australian actor Joel Edgerton as a tangerine with eyebrows drawn on with a magic marker. Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Mendelsohn and Indira Varma star alongside Edgerton, »

See The Troll Living On Joaquin Phoenix's Forehead

18 July 2014 6:51 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Joaquin Phoenix is an accomplished actor, nominated three times for an Academy Award thanks to impeccable performances in Gladiator, Walk The Line and The Master. Last year, it was speculated he could be up for his fourth courtesy of his tender turn in Spike Jonze's Her. But instead of getting recognition for his Her role, he's getting recognition for his head troll. To understand what I'm talking about, you must watch the video above in full. Movies.com tipped us to this odd bit of internet gold that shows a moment from Her that is the film is quite sweet. But if you zero in on Joaquin Phoenix's forehead, you notice it is having a range of emotions all its own. And it sort of looks like a troll. Well, I'd argue a gnome, but semantics. In case you--like us--can't look away, let's take an extended look at »

Hans Zimmer Tribute at the Annenberg Raises $1.2 Million for Israel Philharmonic

17 July 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two giants in their respective fields, Hans Zimmer and Zubin Mehta, held court Wednesday night at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, where Zimmer was bestowed a lifetime achievement award by the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, for which Mehta is co-chairman and holds the post of music director for life.

But it was Zimmer — perhaps the closest thing to a mogul in the scoring realm — who was clearly humbled by the honor. “I was a little nervous about a world-class orchestra playing Schubert (Symphonia N° 8, Unfinished) and Zimmer, and Schubert is a real composer,” Zimmer told Variety. “And just seeing how they really knew my stuff and they loved it. There was this bond.”

The lavish, black-tie affair — consisting of a concert by the orchestra of mostly Zimmer movie compositions, and a Wolfgang Puck-catered supper in the Center’s courtyard afterward — raised approximately $1.2 million for the Israel Philharmonic, »

First official synopsis for David Yates’ Tarzan reboot

17 July 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates is leaving the castles and magical schools of the wizarding world behind, and heading into the jungle for a reboot of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan. Production on the long-gestating project is finally underway, and to celebrate Warner Brothers have released its first official synopsis:

It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom. But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.

6 Best & 6 Worst Historical Movie Epics Of The 2000s

15 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings landed earlier this week, and it certainly seems like a return to familiar territory for the veteran director, who has helmed several big-budget epics over the last decade. While the trailer itself was a little underwhelming, it did boast the stunning visuals we’ve come to expect from Ridley Scott movie and an impressive cast led by Christian Bale that also features Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver.

Ever since the director resurrected the genre with Gladiator at the turn of the millennium, the historical epic has had a patchy track record at the box office to say the least, and it remains to be seen how his latest effort will fare. Exodus will need to be a great movie to stand any chance of commercial success, with a release »
