Top 12 Post-Apocalyptic Films

29 December 2012 1:55 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

According to the Mayan calendar, December 21st was the start of a new era; the apocalypse was due to bring total obliteration to all of humanity!

Luckily, that never really materialised, but for decades now, Hollywood has taken it upon themselves to put forth the infinite possibilities of how this might happen.

Here are Thn’s Top 12 Apocalyptic Films from 2000-2012:

Terminator Salvation – 2009

With Skynet still on the hunt to wipe out humanity, the Man vs. Machine war continues, with John Connor leading the way.

Terminator Salvation belongs on this list because SkyNet upped their game. They realised sending Arnie to destroy humanity was a big mistake.  He ends up turning against them, and helping John Connor. The pressure is on for Skynet; if John Connor lives, he could end up saving humanity, and crushing the machines.

So, they decide to send a female Terminatrix to destroy John Connor. »

David S. Goyer To Tackle Live-Action Hellsing

29 December 2012 12:51 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

For many American anime fans, after a likely introduction to the genre from series such as Dragon Ball Z, Bleach, Naruto and/or Sailor Moon, you stumble across the darker and more adult titles such as Hellsing. Hirano's 1997 manga series is ultra-violent and definitely not for the faint of heart. Probably best described as a mixture of Hellboy and Blade to unfamiliar genre enthusiasts, writer & director David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman Begins, Godzilla) will be helming the independent adaptation which features a script from Asim Ahmad (rumored to be playing Michael Morbius in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel) who will also be portraying Alucard. Jake Sharp (All My Children) will be portraying Father Anderson, Daniel Bernhardt (Bloodsport 2, The Matrix Reloaded) will be portraying Walter and Swedish singer Ana Johnsson will be portraying Integra Hellsing. Expect some recognizable names from the action genre to cameo. Filming »

Immersed in Movies: Uli Hanisch and Hugh Bateup Talk 'Cloud Atlas' Production Design

19 December 2012 10:30 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While "Cloud Atlas" may be the most polarizing movie of the year (winding up on both year-end best and worst lists), there's no denying its ambition and beauty: it's the ultimate time travel movie about connecting and reconnecting and grappling with free will and destiny. And the production design plays a crucial role in defining the six periods that overlap the 500-year ripple. However, it made sense both economically and logistically to split the "Cloud Atlas" production into two units, with designer Hugh Bateup ("The Matrix Reloaded," "The Matrix Revolutions," "Speed Racer") working with Andy and Lana Wachowski and Uli Hanisch collaborating with Tom Tykwer ("Heaven," "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer," "Three"). Team Wachowski was responsible for Victorian 1849 in the South Pacific, 2144 in Neo Seoul, and the cataclysmic aftermath of 2321 (paired with the 2346 epilogue). Team Tykwer was »

The Most Excellent "Bill & Ted" Blu-ray Giveaway

27 November 2012 11:51 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Your mother always used to tell you that if you kept making that face it would stick that way, but she never warned you or Keanu Reeves that the same rule applied to acting like a surfer dude. Apparently he did it so much that he's become frozen in the character he felt most comfortable in: Ted Logan of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (alongside Alex Winter as Bill, oh and George Carlin). He reprised the role in the animated TV series Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures, then in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, and then he carried it through to Parenthood, Point Break, The Matrix, Feeling Minnesota, The Matrix Reloaded, A Scanner Darkly, etc. You get the idea.  He acted that way for too long, and now he's stuck. That doesn't mean we can't enjoy it though, and to prove that we're giving away a Blu-ray copy of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. »

Monica Bellucci is impressed by her kids

14 November 2012 4:01 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Monica Bellucci thinks her children are prodigies. The Italian actress - who has Deva, eight, and two-year-old Leonie, with her French husband Vincent Cassel - is stunned by her young daughters' multilingual skills and many talents and doesn't know where they get them from. Monica mused: 'I don't know; they're not me, they're not Vincent. They're just themselves. I said to my kids that they are already better than me, 'You speak Portuguese without any accent, I don't. You play the piano, I don't. And you're only eight. You'll be amazing.' 'The Matrix Reloaded' star is known for her glamorous look, but insists she doesn't live a luxurious lifestyle and the most important things to her are family and friends. »

Despite Directorial Success, It's Not Easy Getting a Movie Made Let Alone Greenlit

25 October 2012 9:37 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I recently posted an article talking about the budgets for films including Cloud Atlas, The Master, The Hobbit trilogy and Mad Max: Fury Road. While it cost around $100 million to make, Warner Bros. only paid around $20 million for North American rights to distribute Cloud Atlas. The Master cost Megan Ellison's Annapurna around $35 million and The Hobbit trilogy is said to bump up against $1 billion, though Warner Bros. disputes that claim. Different kinds of movies, different budgets all for different reasons, be it anticipated Oscar success, lunchboxes, DVD sales, etc. All three of those movies, however, didn't receive the green light immediately and it got me thinking a little more about the difficulty of getting a film made recently after listening to a 1975 audio interview with director John Schlesinger on Criterion's Sunday Bloody Sunday Blu-ray as well as a small portion from Lana Wachowski's recent Hrc Visibility Award speech. »

Image Conscious: A conversation with visual effects supervisor Randy Goux

3 October 2012 12:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with visual effects supervisor Randy Goux about his career...

“I’m from Cape Cod, Massachusetts,” states Method Studios Visual Effects Supervisor Randy Goux.  “My father is a musician and an artist.  I see a lot of what I have become from what I grew up with; there was a lot of observing and letting things affect you first before you put your stamp on things.”  It was by osmosis that the young salesman for a high end visual effects software got involved with the VFX industry.  “I ended up becoming one of the demo artists for Alias/Wavefront when I was 21.  From there I wanted to make movies.”  He notes, “I went along for the ride, started knowing how to do stuff well and working in studios, and here I am.”  Contemplating what is a great visual effect, Goux asks, “What do you say when someone puts »

Exclusive: Kimble Rendall Talks Bait 3D Blu-ray

17 September 2012 11:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Kimble Rendall talks about his bloody horror-thriller Bait 3D, available on Blu-ray 3D and DVD September 18

Most directors don't become filmmakers overnight, with many cutting their teeth working in other capacities before ascending to the director's chair. Australian helmer Kimble Rendall is one such director, serving as an editor and producer before making his directorial debut with the 2000 thriller Cut. He also served as second unit director on blockbusters such as The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, I, Robot, Ghost Rider, Underworld 3: The Rise of The Lycans, and last year's Killer Elite. He returns to the helm with Bait 3D, debuting on Blu-ray 3D and DVD September 18. I recently had the chance to speak with Kimble Rendall over the phone about this new release. Here's what he had to say.

I read there were a few different versions of the script going around before you became involved. I »

Shock Interview: Bait 3D Director Kimble Rendall

12 September 2012 1:48 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

The last time Australian filmmaker Kimble Rendall was at the helm of a feature-length horror film was the 2000 slasher film Cut, which featured the likes of Molly Ringwald and Kylie Minogue.  But make no mistake, he's been quite busy since then working as a second unit director on films like The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, I, Robot, Ghostrider and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.

Rendall is combining his experience in body count horror and high-caliber action fare with Bait 3D, his super fun sophomore feature outing in the director's chair opening September 14th in limited release and coming to DVD/Blu-ray September 18th.

Starring Sharni Vinson, Julian McMahon, Xavier Samuel, Alex Russell and Phoebe Tonkin, the film concerns a supermarket that is flooded after a tsunami and the remaining survivors who are trapped inside with two great white sharks.

Can James Cameron save Avatar sequels from Matrix meltdown?

12 September 2012 4:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

If he's not careful, the director's back-to-back sci-fi sequels could end up bloated, directionless and painfully self-important like many a film franchise before them

By the end of this year, James Cameron will have finished writing the scripts for both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3. As has been widely reported, these movies will then be filmed concurrently with the first one tentatively set for release in 2015. It's a risky strategy: plenty of other film franchises have attempted back-to-back sequel productions and, more often than not, at least one of those films has ended up being actively terrible.

Think Back to the Future 3, or the endless finale to the last Lord of the Rings film. Or Pirates of the Caribbean 3, so long and impenetrable that watching it feels like spending a month in a Chinese prison. Or either Matrix sequel, both of which could easily vie for the title of Worst Anything That Has Ever Existed. »

James Cameron wants to avoid Matrix 2 issues with Avatar 2

12 September 2012 3:01 AM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

James Cameron has been doing plenty of talking concerning the Avatar sequels of late, and his most recent soundbite concerns his desire to avoid the pitfalls experienced by fellow sci-fi sequel, The Matrix Reloaded. Cameron’s main concern is that the story arc should come to a definitive close at the end of parts two and three, with the audience left with a satisfying conclusion for each movie, rather than a ton of unanswered questions. “It’s a little bit of a daunting writing task because it’s two scripts and...

'Home and Away' no longer like a soap, says Robert Mammone

23 August 2012 3:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Home and Away's Robert Mammone has praised his show for moving away from its previous "soap style" of filming. The Matrix Reloaded actor - Summer Bay's Dr Sid Walker - believes that the Australian serial's production values have markedly improved over the last decade. "You don't go for 25 years without it being something decent," he told The West Australian. "The fact that the network and the producers continually update it has kept the audience intrigued." Mammone added: "We are filming like (more) »

Being a spectator only allows us so many pleasures. It’s far from uncommon for people to watch something happen, watch someone do something as opposed to taking part. I’m not referring to movies or TV, I’m talking here about less passive activities. When we watch sporting events, on TV or in person, depending on the sport, it can be either thrilling or boring. Typically, it’s personal preference. Though it’s arguably very stereotypical to say so, golf is (to me) massively boring. I’ve mostly only seen golf highlights on TV, »

Jada Pinkett Smith: Will is 'another part of me'

10 August 2012 12:02 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Jada Pinkett Smith says Will Smith is like 'another part' of her. The 40-year-old actress insists she won't be divorcing her 'Men In Black' star husband any time soon and can't even fathom the idea of being separated from her 'boo'. Jada told Essence magazine: 'It seems like that happens at least once a year, or at least once every two years - it's rumoured that we're getting a divorce. 'But no, we're not getting a divorce. Where am I going to go? That's my boo. It's like he's another part of me.' 'The Matrix Reloaded' star - who has Jaden, 14, and 11-year-old Willow with her husband of 15 years - said she tries not to let negative comments »

Extended Trailer, Directors’ Commentary, and Poster for Tom Tykwer and The Wachowskis’ Cloud Atlas

26 July 2012 7:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released a six-minute trailer for Cloud Atlas along with a director's commentary video and a poster.  The ambitious movie is based off David Mitchell's novel of the same name, and tracks how the lives of multiple characters intertwine across multiple eras.  Yesterday, we showed you the first images from Cloud Atlas, but they're nothing compared to what this trailer shows in terms of the film's scope and visuals.  Of course, no one expected directors Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski (The Matrix Trilogy), and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) to go small, but it looks like they've made something that's truly a sight to behold.  My only concern is with how the dialogue will be executed.  If it's done in narration, then it will probably be okay, but if it's conversation, then we might want to prepare for the "Let me read you a philosophy textbook" dialogue from The Matrix Reloaded. »

'Hunger Games' Final Chapter 'Mockingjay' Officially Gets Two Films

10 July 2012 2:34 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Since over a year ago, there have been rumors that Lionsgate was looking to split the final chapter of The Hunger Games series, the third book titled Mockingjay, into two films, much like their sister company Summit did with Twilight: Breaking Dawn and Warner Bros. did with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now the split seems official as Deadline now has release dates for the two-part finale. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I will hit on November 21st, 2014, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II will arrive a year later on November 20th, 2015. My thoughts on the split below. A whole year between the finale seems pretty brutal, but that's exactly what Twilight fans have had to deal with between the Breaking Dawn films. I would prefer a six month wait between them like The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, but I think there's a bigger problem »
