Emily Blunt On The "Edge Of Tomorrow"

2 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more new images plus footage from "The Bourne Identity" director Doug Liman's upcoming sci-fi action thriller "Edge of Tomorrow", starring Emily Blunt, Tom Cruise and Bill Paxton:

"....in the near future an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

"'Lt. Col. Bill Cage' (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission.

"Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside 'Special Forces' warrior 'Rita Vrataski' (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated »

John Powell on Five of His Notable Scores

9 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Composer John Powell talks about his five fave movie music projects and why:

Face/Off (1997)

“You do your first big movie, and it’s a John Woo film with Nicolas Cage and John Travolta. The premiere was at the Mann Chinese; Hans (Zimmer) got me a limo. There was a big crowd, and as I got out of the limo, there was this sigh of disappointment when they realized that it wasn’t John Travolta. I recommend this to all Hollywood composers. Within a small group of people, we may be well known, but it’s not why people go to the movies.”

Endurance (1999)

“The first person that Hans introduced me to, and got me involved with, was Terrence Malick. He was producing a docudrama about Haile Gebrselassie, the great Ethopian long-distance runner. Malick treated me as an artist. Hollywood is full of very, very artistic people. It is a business, »

Billion Dollar Composer: John Powell Ranges From Action to Animation

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With “Rio 2” in release and “How to Train Your Dragon 2” due in June, London-born John Powell reconfirms his status as today’s leading composer for animated films.

Twenty of his 54 features have been animated. And with a resume that also includes a 2010 Oscar nomination for his soaring “How to Train Your Dragon” score and music for such hits as “Happy Feet,” three of the “Ice Age” movies, two Dr. Seuss entries, “Kung Fu Panda” and the original “Shrek,” it’s hard to dispute that Powell has made a lasting impression on the genre.

“I grew up on ‘The Jungle Book,’ Warner Bros. cartoons, and ‘Tom and Jerry,’” says Powell in his expansive Pacific Palisades studio, the day before leaving for London to record music for the “Dragon” sequel. “I love the artistry of animation, and I prefer the stories. It’s much more joyful. Live-action is just so »

Doug Liman Set to Direct Children's Sci-Fi 'Railhead' for Warner Bros.

11 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This summer we'll see The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman's sci-fi action flick Edge of Tomorrow hit theaters, but the filmmaker has a whole slew of projects in his future. The latest directing gig for Liman seems to be the video game adaptation of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell starring Tom Hardy, and now THR has word that the director will head into children's sci-fi territory for a new project called Railhead set up at Warner Bros. Based on Philip Reeve's upcoming book of the same name, the book is set in a futuristic world where trains run through space by way of portals. Sounds like there's the potential for a space western here. The story follows a petty thief hired to steal an object that happens to be more important than he was led to believe. There seems to be flares of Indiana Jones in space as well, »

Warner Bros just unveiled a new poster for Tom Cruise's upcoming sci-fi thriller "Edge of Tomorrow," which co-stars Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton. Check it out below. The movie is set in the near future, in which the world's armies are forced to unite to battle an alien race that landed on Earth, destroying cities and killing millions. Cruise plays Lt. Col. Bill Cage, an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is demoted and then thrown into battle. Within minutes, he is killed. But he awakens back at the beginning of the same day and is forced to fight and die again -- and again, like a sci-fi version of "Groundhog Day." The new movie is directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) and is set to hit theaters on June 6th. Poster: (click to enlarge) »

Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt Suit Up in New Poster for Edge of Tomorrow

21 April 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In a very busy blockbuster season, Edge of Tomorrow looks set to be a stand out hit for The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman. Following a recent trailer which showed off both the impressive action and story in equal measure, a new poster has been released putting the spotlight on Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.

Edge of Tomorrow will see the duo play two military officers who are forced to relive their day over and over again as they battle a mysterious alien race and continuously fail. However, each time they die and return, they learn more about what they have to do to succeed. Sort of like a video game check point!

New poster for Edge of Tomorrow featuring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

21 April 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted a new poster for director Doug Liman’s (The Bourne Identity) upcoming sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow, which gives us a new look at the film’s leads, Tom Cruise (Jack Reacher) and Emily Blunt (Looper)…

The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.

Somewhere in the Night

Written by Joseph L. Mankiewicz

Directed by Howard Dimsdale and Joseph L. Mankiewizc

USA, 1946

A man (John Hodiak) wakes up in a military hospital, cognizant of the fact that he has been in battle for the United States but entirely oblivious of who he is or where he lives. Only a few cryptic pieces of paper in his pocket inform him of his name  George Taylor; that a woman now hates him; and that a good pal of his, Larry Cravat, wants to meet him in Los Angeles transfer a significant amount of saved up funds through a bank account. Thus begins George’s vertiginous journey into the City of Angels, where the clues as to his true identity sometimes add up whilst other times stir further confusion. By all accounts, there are some people who view the name Larry Cravat as either a threat, as in the case of Lt. »

Entertainment Geekly: 'The Raid 2' and the death of Hollywood action movies

3 April 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

Hollywood only makes action movies now. Hollywood doesn’t really make action movies anymore. Both of those statements can’t be true, and yet, they’re both basically accurate. It is very rare for Hollywood to release a major non-Oscar  bait motion picture that doesn’t feature at least one and usually fifteen sequences where our conventional definition of “action” happens. “Action”: Gunfights, swordfights, bow-and-arrow fights, car chases, car crashes, car chases that flip into crashes, »

Sheldon Turner to script Splinter Cell

1 April 2014 11:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline reports that Sheldon Turner is to pen the script for Doug Liman’s (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) adaptation of the popular Ubisoft video game Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, which has Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Locke) attached to star in the lead role.

Turner’s previous work includes the remake of The Longest Yard but he did write Up In the Air so there is still hope. His other credits include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and X-Men: First Class. Turner has also written a script called Everest, which just so happens to have Liman directing and Tom Hardy starring.

It looks like Turner should get cracking on Splinter Cell, with filming due to start as early as August and a release date pencilled for the end of 2015. »

Up In The Air Screenwriter Sheldon Turner to Reteam with Tom Hardy and Doug Liman for Splinter Cell

1 April 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Screenwriter Sheldon Turner had written a screenplay for a Mount Everest movie set to star Tom Hardy and be directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity).  That film was going to center on George Mallory, who tried to scale the mountain, but disappeared during his ascent.  However, that movie has fallen apart because Baltasar Kormakur's Everest is already filming (it's about a present day group of climbers) and will reach theaters first.  Turner, Hardy, and Liman are now reuniting for another project: an adaptation of Ubisoft's popular video game series, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell.  According to Deadline, Turner will write a new draft of the script, and production is gearing up to shoot in August.  Turner will then go direct the "modern day Western", Borderland. For those unfamiliar with Splinter Cell, the games center on Sam Fisher, a black ops agent who uses stealth to carry out his missions. »

Splinter Cell Movie Snags A Writer

31 March 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Doug Liman signed on to direct, and Tom Hardy set for the lead role, the Splinter Cell movie is looking more and more promising with each passing day. Now, the film has a writer in the form of Up in the Air scribe Sheldon Turner. Savvy readers might remember that Hardy, Liman and Turner actually set out to make another movie together last year, when the three attempted to put together Sony’s Everest. That project is now postponed, thanks to Universal’s film of the same name, but it’s clear that this trio still wants to make some movie magic together.

Plot details are thin for the Splinter Cell adaptation but I would imagine that the script will focus on Sam Fisher, the protagonist from the video games. For those who don’t know, Fisher is a black-ops agent who works for the fictional Nsa group Third Echelon. »

Nick Frost had a deep, dark secret: He liked to dance. Or he wanted to like to dance. One night, after a few drinks, he pecked out a movie idea in an email to his longtime producer, Nira Park, then went to bed. She called him the next morning to say how much she liked his idea about a shy, average-looking guy who resurrects his childhood passion for salsa dancing in order to woo his beautiful new boss (Rashida Jones) away from her doucheboat boyfriend (Chris O’Dowd).
