Josh Hartnett, Reeve Carney and Harry Treadaway are coy about 'Penny Dreadful' season 2

29 July 2014 12:32 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - When we last left "Penny Dreadful's" most eligible bachelors things weren't necessarily coming up roses. Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) had transformed into a werewolf type creature (although it turns out he isn't aware of what happens to him when he "blacks out" and goes wild) and suffered through the death of his lover, Brona Croft (Billie Piper). Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney) had his heart unceremoniously broken by Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and found himself once more immortal and alone. Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) couldn't kill the Creature (Rory Kinnear) he created that was threatening to destroy everyone around him.  Instead, he took Ms. Croft's life earlier than her terminal sickness would have allowed so that he could properly transform her into a "bride" for his monstrous creation. These gentlemen of questionable morals and virtues are three reasons why John Logan's Showtime series is so fascinating. »

Matt Reeves talks Planet of the Apes 3

19 July 2014 3:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Dawn of the Planet of the Apes currently tearing up the box office and garnering near universal praise [read our two ★★★★★ reviews here and here], director Matt Reeves has offered up some insight into where the already-announced third movie (which is set for July 26th, 2016) may head during an interview with The Playlist. Be warned, spoilers for the end of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Mark Bomback and I are going to be writing the next one and we have a lot of ideas but you know we’re going to take a moment to breathe. We just finished this one so we’ll see where it goes but we have a lot of ideas we just have to sit down and start it all up again. But it’s really important to me that whatever we do next is something that can be better than Dawn, so hopefully we can achieve that aim. »

11 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Darren Lynn Bousman, the man behind several of the ultra-successful Saw entries including the original sequel Saw II, has just signed on to direct an indie sci-fi actioner called Apex, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Described as “Predator meets Call of Duty,” Apex is set to center on a secretive Special Ops team deployed on a covert mission to North Korea in hopes of securing a weapon of mass destruction. During the mission, the team is transported to another world and finds itself pitted against a hostile and extremely dangerous alien species.

When Aliens Invade: 8 Great Invasion Movies

9 July 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The alien invasion scenario is a common one in cinema – and for good reason. If movies are a mirror, reflecting social anxieties and regrets, then the alien invasion trope is one of the most adaptable allegories imaginable. For decades, filmmakers have used it to discuss military policies, fear of technology and concern over environmental abuses. Our scientific progress as a species, in conflict with the moral progress of our conscience, and our natural fear of change, are all to be found in the alien invasion movie. There are three main types of cinematic alien invasion – each serving a different purpose – although variations and combinations do occasionally appear. These are Occupation, Infiltration and Raid.

The Occupation alien invasion movie addresses two main concerns about the human condition. First, are the films featuring aliens that want our planet, and are entirely disinterested in us. We are inconsequential, and serve no purpose. We »

New Posters for Upcoming Film Exodus: Gods and Kings

8 July 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ridley Scott, director of great films such as Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, and Black Hawk Down has set his sites on directing a film of Biblical proportions.

Yes, you heard me right.  Ridley Scott is going back to his roots as a church goer and is directing the story of Moses, the adopted son of the current Pharaoh, and his fight to free the Israelite nation from slavery.

As a Christian I am always looking for a good Biblically based movie but find them always falling short due to artisit licensing so I am really praying that he does the Christian, and Jewish world a solid and stick to exactly what transpired so many years ago.

Yahoo! got an exclusive look at the new movie posters depicting Moses, played by Christian Bale, and Pharaoh Ramses, played by an unrecognizable Joel Edgerton, in a grayscale, accenting their bronze attire.  Personaly I kinda like the look, »

Emily Mortimer Joins Supernatural Thriller 'Spectral'

7 July 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Emily Mortimer is in talks to play the female lead in Legendary's supernatural action-thriller Spectral, alongside James Badge Dale.

The story is described as a supernatural version of Black Hawk Down, following a Special Ops unit who battles otherworldly creatures that have taken over a European city. Emily Mortimer is playing a CIA mission leader, with James Badge Dale playing a researcher who works with her. It seems that the story has been altered slightly, since our February report revealed that these creatures have attacked New York City, although now an unspecified European city will be the target.

Nic Mathieu is making his directorial debut on the project, working from a script by George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau) and John Gatins (Need for Speed), based on an original story by Ian Fried (Gaslight). Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing for Legendary, with Jillian Share and Guy Riedel serving as executive producers. »
