4 August 2017 5:41 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Atomic Blonde review: Charlize Theron channels her inner John Wick in this eighties-set spy action-thriller.

Atomic Blonde review by Kat Hughes.

Atomic Blonde review

Director David Leitch has been in the movie industry for years. He started life as a stunt double, most notably working on The Matrix films, before venturing into directing with stunt-mate Chad Stahelski. The duo’s first project, John Wick, took the world by storm. What on paper should have been a terrible Dtv, was actually an inventive an incredible tour-de-force. Now Leitch ventures out on his own with Atomic Blonde.

Atomic Blonde sees Charlize Theron take centre stage in an eighties-set tale of Cold War spies. Theron plays Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent, tasked with retrieving an important list from Berlin during the fall of the Berlin Wall. Upon arrival, she partners with David Percival (played by James McAvoy), an embedded station chief, to navigate »

Tai Freligh interviews Connie Nielsen

Connie Nielsen is a Danish actress who first gained fame for her portrayal of Princess Lucilla in Gladiator with Russell Crowe back in 2000 and has done extensive movie and television work since then, most recently as Queen Hippolyta in Wonder Woman and as Claire Seth in The Confessions, in U.S. theaters now.  I asked her about The Confessions, Wonder Woman, Justice League and Stratton and tossed in some fun speed round questions too.

Tell me about your character Claire Seth and how she fits into this meeting of the world’s greatest leaders in Germany?

These meets often invite VIP guests – celebrities, actors, musicians – I play Claire Seth, one of the most successful writers of all time of children’s fiction.

What did you do to get into character for an acclaimed children’s author?

‘Sense8’: Inside the Last-Minute Scramble to Film at the Biggest Gay Pride Celebration in the World

5 May 2017 3:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s note: The following contains minor spoilers for “Sense8” Season 2, Episode 6, “Isolated Above, Connected Below.”]

Sense8” is one of TV’s craziest, most unique series, and no one knows that better than executive producer Grant Hill — the guy who has to handle the show’s insane production logistics. While in the thick of production, the cast and crew are constantly traveling from location to location, literally spanning the globe over the course of months.

Hill began working with Lana and Lilly Wachowski as the unit production manager (Upm) on “The Matrix Reloaded,” and has been involved with all of their projects ever since. But the challenges presented by “Sense8” were a step beyond what he’d been asked to do before. “Probably the hardest but the best decision we made was that we wanted to film everything that was scripted in a particular city in that city,” he explained.

Kingsman: Director Matthew Vaughn Already Has Third Film In Mind

5 May 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

I’ve said this time and again: Kingsman: The Secret Service was an unexpectedly amazing film. Its marketing didn’t really do the movie any big favors, and when I checked it out in theaters, it exceeded my incredibly low expectations. However, upon numerous repeated viewings, I’m happy to say that the film manages to hold up immensely well — and I may even dare to say it Improved with every viewing.

Needless to say, this has someone like me incredibly excited to see what the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle has to offer. The first trailer was all sorts of promising. With its over-the-top action, dude with a metal arm, and the return of Colin Firth’s Harry, it seems very much in keeping with the tone and style of the original movie. But can we expect even more from the franchise?

‘Matrix’ Mashup: Imagine if Will Smith Hadn’t Turned Down the Role of Neo

9 April 2017 12:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Everyone knows Keanu Reeves starred in “The Matrix.” What this video presupposes is…maybe he didn’t? YouTube user The Unusual Suspect has reimagined the Wachowskis’ science-fiction blockbuster with Will Smith in the lead role of Neo, as the part was originally offered to the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and “Bad Boys” star. Watch below and try not to say “whoa.”

Featuring clips from the original film with shots of Smith woven in, the video acts as a trailer of sorts for this alternate-history (or -future?) version of “The Matrix.” Scenes from such films as “Men in Black” and especially “I, Robot” are used to create the illusion, often quite seamlessly; it helps that “I, Robot” is another sci-fi/action hybrid that calls on Smith to fire weapons and appear as though »

Will Smith Is Neo in The Matrix Fan-Cut Trailer

7 April 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

18 years after hitting theaters, The Matrix is still an indelible part of pop culture. The franchise made headlines yet again last month with news that Warner Bros. has hired writer Zak Penn to write a new Matrix movie. Rumors then surfaced that Michael B. Jordan is wanted as a young Morpheus in a prequel. What some fans may not realize is that Will Smith had originally been offered the role of Neo, but turned it down, opting instead to star in The Wild Wild West. This paved the way for Keanu Reeves to land the iconic role, which he reprised in the sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. Now, an inventive fan took it upon himself to cut together a trailer that shows what it may have looked like if Will Smith had played Neo.

Michael Shannon is the frontrunner to play Cable in “Deadpool 2.”

While no deal is yet in place, Shannon has been the top choice for about a week. Fox, the studio handling the film, had no comment on the news.

Zak Penn says The Matrix reboot may not be a reboot after all

17 March 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since word came on Tuesday that Warner Bros. is developing a reboot of The Wachowski’s groundbreaking 1999 film The Matrix, it got many people talking about how The Matrix should never be rebooted, or how now is the perfect time for a reboot of the franchise.

Zak Penn, the screenwriter who is in charge of writing the new film, recently took to Twitter to discuss his thoughts on the news and said some interesting things about the project. The Matrix reboot may not entirely be a reboot after all, but a continuation of the universe, much like The Animatrix or FX’s X-Men themed Legion, because “it’s a brilliant idea that generates great stories”. He even said that the only person who could recast Keanu Reeves is Keanu Reeves.

All I can say at this point is no one could or should Reboot the Matrix. People who know Animatrix and the comics understand. »

10 extremely interesting facts you didn’t know about the X-Men franchise

16 March 2017 12:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

17 years after the original X-Men made its debut, and the franchise is still going strong. There may have been more than a few bumps in the road, but after the well-deserved success of Logan this past week, the series appears to be set for many years to come.

Logan, the spectacular third solo outing for the character, marks Hugh Jackman’s final performance as the Wolverine. After 17 years, 9 appearances, and enough protein consumption to last a lifetime, Jackman is finally hanging up the claws. His departure marks a bittersweet conclusion for this era of the franchise, and leaves the long-running series with a fresh and uncharted future.

There are currently quite a few X-related projects in the works, including Deadpool 2, X-Force, New Mutants, Gambit and X-Men: Supernova. But, before we’re quite ready to move into the next wave of films, check out 10 extremely interesting facts you didn’t know about the X-Men franchise! »

Why A Matrix Reboot Is A Tough Sell

15 March 2017 3:20 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It seems like every single day we’re writing about the next big reboot, remake, or sequel. Either that, or we’re talking about the concept of reboots, remakes, or sequels. Heck, just yesterday, we posted a story on writer/director Joss Whedon’s feelings on us currently living in an age where every single property that’s ever existed is fair game to pick back up, dust off, and repackage (his quote is addressed further in this article). It’s how the industry thrives. When marketing to mass consumers, studios have learned that attaching a familiar name is a surefire way to get more butts in seats.

While this seems like an awful atmosphere for creativity, we can’t dismiss the entire industry. There have been dozens and dozens of classics that have been made as a result of this trend. Without this trend, the Marvel Cinematic Universe wouldn’t be a thing. »

[Updated] The Matrix: Warner Bros Looking To Reboot Franchise, Michael B. Jordan Potentially Eyed To Star?

15 March 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Update: Details added regarding a potential writer's room near the end.

Even though we live in an era where practically every film franchise under the sun is likely to get a remake, reboot, or sequel at any given moment. You may think that your favorite movie, book, or series is safe, but no, it’s not. Nothing is safe in Tinsel Town. When Ben-Hur is a movie that gets remade, you really know that nothing is sacred. The same goes for the Matrix films. The first one was a huge testament of innovative filmmaking, unique ideas, and layering big ideas under the skin of a popcorn flick.

The Matrix showed that with the perfect mix of thriller, intrigue, action, and philosophy, you can make a film rise above expectations. Sadly, with its sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, it also proved that delving too deep into a mystery »

‘The Matrix’: Why Relaunching the Franchise Without the Wachowskis Is A Terrible, Terrible Idea

15 March 2017 9:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dear Warner Bros.,

Look, we see where you’re coming from. All the cool kids are doing it — reviving their IP to create new franchises for new generations. And yes, if a woman was nine months pregnant when she watched the seminal sci-fi action film written and directed by the Wachowskis, her kid would now be graduating from high school. So it’s not exactly shocking that, almost exactly 18 years after the first film’s release, reports emerge that you’re laying the groundwork to relaunch “The Matrix.”

The Wachowskis aren’t currently involved. It’s unclear if they will be. But if you’re planning to revive “The Matrix” without the Wachowskis — well, that’s completely insane.

We know that in the current cultural landscape, those who believe old titles and premises should be left alone are increasingly viewed as Luddites. We know it looks so, so tempting — the franchise grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide. »
