“Don’t Let Go.” I’ve been looking forward to this movie ever since Warner Bros. added it to their 2013 lineup. Today, the studio released the first poster for Gravity. Directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”), the movie stars Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side,” “The Proposal”) and George Clooney (“Up in the Air,” “Syriana”).
Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone – tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.
The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. »

The year was 1995 and I was home, excited to see a little movie called Castle Freak. Why? Because the killer was insane looking. Then I saw it... his severed cock-nub. I've never been the same. Now to be able to see said cock-nub in full 1080p? Oh, friggin' my!
That's right, kids! Full Moon Entertainment has unleashed two of its most infamous films from director Stuart Gordon, Castle Freak and the 1991 lunacy laden flick The Pit and the Pendulum. Believe me you haven't lived until you've seen Lance Henriksen as Torquemada. It's almost as disturbing as a 1980p cock-nub. To order them now just hit up Full Moon Direct.
The Pit and the Pendulum Synopsis
In the quest to save souls, the Spanish Inquisition will stop at nothing and knows no boundaries for evil. »

Or is it duuuuuunnnnn! Or braaaaaaawwnwnnnn! All kidding aside, Christopher Nolan's favorite composer (he scored the soundtracks for the Nolan-directed Inception, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and for the Nolan-produced upcoming Man Of Steel, amongst so many others) Hans Zimmer is composing the score for Steve McQueen's Twelve Years a Slave - this according to The Film Music Reporter. The German film composer and music producer has composed music for over 100 films, including The Lion King, Crimson Tide, The Thin Red Line, Gladiator, The Last Samurai, the aforementioned Dark Knight trilogy and Inception, The Da Vinci Code, The »

One of the best things about the latest Man Of Steel trailer was the music. It's not easy to follow in the footsteps of John Williams' iconic score, which has become as synonymous to Superman as the emblazoned "S" on his chest. So, who better to carry that torch than composer Hans Zimmer? His scores for such films as Gladiator, Crimson Tide, Backdraft, The Dark Knight trilogy, Pirates Of The Caribbean trilogy, The Lion King, Inception, etc., have defined a generation of movie music »

Paul Risker looks at Starz's Spartacus and its place amongst the historical epics of the big and small screen...
By the time Steven S. DeKnight brought his vision of Spartacus: Blood and Sand to the small screen in January of 2010, the story of Spartacus’ revolt against the might of the Roman Empire and its legendary war machine had both been told and re-imagined.
The story was told none so famously as in Stanley Kubrick’s Spartacus (1960), and re-imagined forty years later in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. To look beyond these two filmmakers, the story of Spartacus’ uprising and his part in the Third Servile War against the Republic has been an influential force on storytellers, spanning literature, film and television. In this latest incarnation DeKnight offers his take on this legendary, yet ambiguous figure. If the list of stories available to storytellers comprises a short list, then DeKnight was treading »

“I want to write something new, something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned.”
From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. In his adaptation, the filmmaker combines his distinctive visual, sonic, and storytelling styles in 3 Dimensions, weaving a Jazz Age cocktail faithful to Fitzgerald’s text and relevant to now. Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the title role.
In theaters on May 10th, “The Great Gatsby” follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. »

Interview Rachel George 29 Apr 2013 - 07:00
The eponymous star of Starz’ epically successful Spartacus discusses accents, endings, historical nerdery and more...
We’ve been covering Spartacus since it first bodyslammed on to our TVs back in 2010. It seems a little wrong to describe its fans as 'legions' – perhaps 'hordes' would be better? – but regardless, it’s certainly put Liam McIntyre, who took over the lead role following the tragic passing of Andy Whitfield, on the map. We caught up with him to find out how he’s handling his new-found fame and what’s next for the legendary bringer of rain.
How was filming the final episode?
We worked really hard to do something that was powerful and I spent so much time with the director and with Steven [DeKnight, writer] looking over the script. I was a fan from season one, and there were all these moments that we really wanted to bring full circle, »
If you listen to the show, you know that I’m nervous about Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming effort, The Great Gatsby. I’m unconvinced that Leo can pull of Gatsby, if I’m being honest, but more importantly, Luhrmann’s bent toward dropping stories into the same formula doesn’t seem in line with the story.
At any rate, it seems like some things are being managed well enough, if we just look at the images. I’ll give them Carey Mulligan though, she could be a good fit.
Will you be in line for this one on opening day?

You finally made it to the big leagues for whatever culturally relevant thing you have wanted to bring to the masses, be it your movie, music, love of being nobody relevant; the TV wasteland awaits you. Your publicist has arranged a few choice outings to go and ‘get your name out there’ but did your publicist provide a guideline of what you can and cannot do in front of a television camera? Probably not. Or maybe they did. It depends if your publicist is your mom’s best friend or a professional mover and shaker.
If it’s the former, no worries. WhatCulture has you covered with these 5 basic rules that have been established through time immemorial (so about, 1976) in regards to how you should act when your persona is being beamed out through the cosmos through a magical process that has yet to be scientifically explained or proven but »

Quite the week for fans of Big Blue. Not only is it Superman's 75th birthday, but the final trailer for Man of Steel was released on Wednesday to much acclaim (read Martin Deer's reaction to the trailer here). But that isn't the only news to come from the Superman camp.
Thanks to a ruling in the U.S. District Court, Warner Bros. ended its legal issues with the heirs of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel. The ruling affirms a contested 2001 agreement between the estate and Warner, with the Siegels granting the studio and DC Comics full rights to Superman and Superboy. It's looking like Warner Bros. and DC have finally won.
It seems as though the Siegel's are never out of court over the legal rights of the Superman character. The first case began in late 40s and they were in court again in the early 70s and again in »

The much-anticipated three-minute trailer for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel debuted last night, and the Internet has been abuzz ever since about the new things it told us. Cluing us in on more of the action beats as well as Clark’s origin story, this new trailer mostly cements our anticipation for the Christopher Nolan-produced film, though also presents a few question marks that I’m personally not that sure about. Still, we don’t have too long to wait to find all the answers out – the film drops in less than 2 months on June 14th.
Here are 10 things we learned from the new Man of Steel trailer…

A new 3 minute trailer has arrived for 'Man Of Steel' on the back of a viral video message from General Zod (Michael Shannon), in which the Kryptonian demands that the people of Earth hand Kal-El over to him.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes “Man of Steel,” starring Henry Cavill (“Immortals,” TV’s “The Tudors”) in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, under the direction of Zack Snyder (“300,” “Watchmen”).
A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
The film also stars four-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams (“The Master”) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, »

A wonderful 3rd trailer for director Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel is here. With the film being released on June 14th and Father’s Day on June 16th, it’s heartwarming to see the new footage of Kal-El’s Kryptonian dad Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and his Earth father, Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner).
Watch as Superman gives the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards.
Oh my goodness! “You were sent here for a reason.” “In time you will help them accomplish wonders.” If that doesn’t have you welling up with tears, I don’t know what will.

Picked up the latest edition of EW? The son of Krypton, Kal-El, is front and center for its Summer Preview issue.
Superman fans got a first look (more of a listen) at The Man Of Steel’s nemesis during Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. General Zod sent a message to Earth – as well as a ultimatum – in the new TV Spot “You Are Not Alone”. We have 24 hours to comply.
So now what happens. Head over to http://www.iwillfindhim.com/ to see the countdown clock to the next event and then to http://dsrwproject.com/ to decipher it all. Five will get you ten that we’ll be seeing another viral video and eventually more footage. Man Of Steel will be in theaters in less than a month so plan on more goodies on Tuesday from Warner Bros.
