Trailer For Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape Of Water Takes Filmmaker Back To Dark Fairy Tales

19 July 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has certainly had an interesting career.  He’s one who has had his films deeply embedded in horror aspects. Looking back at some of his early work like Cronos, it was clear the man had a penchant for the macabre, and it served him quite well. Del Toro went on to helm such films as Blade II, and perhaps most notably, Pan’s Labyrinth.

Pan’s Labyrinth was a defining piece of work. While Blade II was certainly a big hit when it came out in theaters, not many thought to look behind the curtain of the film itself. Blade II allowed him to move on to Hellboy, which gave him more mainstream attention, but with Pan’s Labyrinth, it finally seemed like we had a grip over what his style was capable of. Set in 1940s span, the film was a dark fairy tale that »

The Wondrous Trailer For Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape Of Water Arrives

19 July 2017 9:20 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Audiences at this weekend’s showings of War For The Planet Of The Apes saw the magical trailer for master story teller Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape Of Water – an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963.

Today, FoxSearchlight released online the trailer.

In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.

In his filmmaking career, del Toro has alternated between Spanish-language dark fantasy pieces, such as the gothic horror film The Devil’s Backbone (2001), and Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), and more mainstream American action movies, such as the vampire superhero action film Blade II (2002), the supernatural superhero film »

Jay Baruchel interview: Chapterhouse Comics, Goon 2, Statham

11 July 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Duncan Bowles Jul 17, 2017

Jay Baruchel chats to us about comics, X-Men movies, Goon 2 and Jason Statham...

Jay Baruchel is a very happy man indeed. Over the last decade, I’ve been fortunate enough to interview a lot of people for Den of Geek, but Mr Baruchel might just be the most enthusiastic one to date – almost every sentence ended with the kind of joyous laugh that would come from having, quite possibly, the best job ever, twice. Known to most as an actor with a gift for the comedic, having starred in the likes of Tropic Thunder, Knocked Up, Goon, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Art Of The Steal (to name a few personal favourites) as well as voicing accidental hero Hiccup in the fantastic How To Train Your Dragon movies, it was about his recent involvement with Canadian comic book publisher, Chapterhouse, that we had a chat with him about. »

Blade Will Join the McU Someday Says Marvel Boss

27 June 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Is Blade the vampire hunter set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Not that we can expect to see a reboot in the near future, but don't be surprised if the character shows up in the McU at some point soon. Marvel Studios' head honcho Kevin Feige is in charge and, if he has his way, it will happen someday. Unless someone else gets his job, he more or less will get his way, so this is pretty good news for Blade fans.

Kevin Feige has been making the press rounds for Spider-Man: Homecoming and took some time to chat with JoBlo. During the conversation, the subject of Blade 4 came up and the possibility of the character having a future in the McU. Kevin Feige's answer was very positive, saying that the folks in charge think it would be cool, but the time isn't right just yet. Here's »

TaleWorlds Entertainment has released two videos showing an extended look at the large-scale, epic combat in their upcoming follow-up to Mount & Blade: Warband – Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.

Battles are at the very core of the series and play better than ever in the latest installment – check out the key battle improvements:

Advanced Formations – Merge and split forces at your behest, with intuitive but powerful control over the movement, form and behavior of every unit! Order heavy infantry to hold together, shoulder-to-shoulder in a slowly advancing but near impenetrable shield wall; or launch your cavalry in lightning charges using the skein formation. Battlefield AI – AI commanders can execute complex tactics, utilizing the advanced formation options to present a formidable challenge.

New Masters Of The Universe Movie Slated for 2019 Release

26 April 2017 9:33 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Prepare for more big screen battles in the land of Eternia, because Sony Pictures has set a 2019 release date for a new Masters of the Universe movie.

According to multiple sources, including Box Office Mojo, the new Masters of the Universe movie is scheduled to come out on December 18th, 2019 from Sony.

Originally launched by Mattel in the early ’80s as an action figure line, the Masters of the Universe franchise follows a character called Prince Adam, aka He-Man, who bands together with fellow warriors to defend Castle Grayskull from the sinister sorcerer Skeletor and his followers.

The characters of the action figure line came to life in Filmation's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series in the ’80s, followed by a 1987 live-action movie starring Dolph Lundgren as Prince Adam / He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor (see above).

Box Office Democracy: Ghost in the Shell

4 April 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’m sort of curious why Dreamworks even wanted to pay for the rights to make a Ghost in the Shell movie if they weren’t particularly interested in doing anything with the property they acquired. They seemed interested in making a cyberpunk movie, a cyberpunk movie about a badass lady android with some identity issues. I’m pretty sure you could just make an original one of those, no one owns cyberpunk or androids.  If you’re going to pay for a beloved property you could try and tell a story they’ve already told, or at the very least not one that’s just like one they’ve told but much simpler and with a healthy dose of cliche.  I don’t understand why you would buy a Japanese franchise and decide that you only want the Japanese-ness to be set dressing.  If this was an original property »

Deadpool 2: The Vanessa Conundrum — Where Can Morena Baccarin’s Character Go In The Sequel?

29 March 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The goal of any movie franchise is to build upon what came before while addressing its audience's expectations. In a film like last year's unconventional (and record-breaking) Deadpool, which kicked the superhero genre squarely in its collective cojones, this poses a real dilemma. Deadpool was successful precisely because it broke with convention and sought to be different; however, the concept of "sequel" generally implies formula. 

So how does Deadpool 2's creative team, including actor Ryan Reynolds, new director David Leitch (John Wick), and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick avoid the sequel trap? 

The simple answer: play to your strengths! Deadpool was primarily interested in exploring its characters. Sure, every movie is about characters, but unlike most of the recent superhero films, which thrive on plot and spectacle, Deadpool shoved action and narrative aside to more deeply focus upon its characters and their relationships. I think we can all agree, »

Logan Loses Composer Cliff Martinez, Gains Marco Beltrami

3 January 2017 12:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cliff Martinez is one of the most exciting composers in Hollywood today. Most recently, his scores in The Neon Demon and Steven Soderbergh’s Cinemax series The Knick are among the richest, most expressive music compositions of the past few years. As such, we were excited to hear what he would do with Logan, but alas, we’ll never know. For reasons unknown, Martinez has been replaced by Marco Beltrami, director James Mangold’s regular composer, who also worked on 2013’s The Wolverine.

The news came from Mangold’s own Twitter account (via Film Music Reporter). When pressed by a diehard Beltrami fan as to why the composer wouldn’t return, the filmmaker corrected him.

@marco_beltrami Sure! But always wise to start softer and hear from other side before making accusations. Relax. Marco is scoring the film.

— Mangold (@mang0ld) December 30, 2016

There’s no explanation as to why Martinez stepped aside for Beltrami. »
