7 Characters That The Third Star Wars Anthology Film Could Focus On

16 June 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In April 2013, Disney Chairman Alan Horn made the dreams of millions come true when he announced a range of new plans for the iconic and beloved Star Wars film franchise. Beginning with a new trilogy of core sequels – headed up by Star Wars: The Force Awakens – the studio confirmed that there would also be several standalone, spinoff movies, giving a broader view of Star Wars action.

With this parallel Star Wars series quickly becoming known as the Star Wars Anthology films, the imaginations of fans ran wild – with such a rich universe to draw upon, the possibilities seemed endless. The schedule for these new plans was confirmed by Disney CEO Bob Iger – the intention being, to release of a new core film every two years, interspersed with an Anthology film. The result of this schedule means we will potentially see a brand new Star Wars film every year, for six years, »

Transformers Writers Room Could Come up with as Many as 12 Movies

8 June 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Transformers franchise, the toxic waste dump of the blockbuster movie landscape, has put together a writers room led by Akiva Goldsman, the man who brought you Winter’s Tale. Like other studios trying to emulate the Marvel, Paramount wants to pull together an interconnected universe and do it through a system similar to a television model instead of a screenplay getting passed down from writer to writer until it lands in the hands of Michael Bay and becomes a stack of paper on which he can put his coffee. Per Forbes, the current Transformers writers room consists of Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Jeff Pinker (Lost), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), The Walking Dead creator Robert KirkmanAndrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari (Ant-Man), Christina Hodson (Shut In), Lindsey BeerKen Nolan (Black Hawk Down) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.

William Fichtner Takes Lead Role In Independence Day 2

29 May 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After years as a character actor in flicks as diverse as Black Hawk DownThe Dark Knight and The Perfect Storm, William Fichtner is finally landing major roles. The actor, last seen in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, has signed on to play a top general in Independence Day 2.

Fichtner’s character will first appear in the next Independence Day sequel before becoming a more central player (possibly even the main antagonist) in the already-planned third and fourth movies.

It’s great to see Fichtner scoring bigger parts in blockbuster fare. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in which he played villain Eric Sacks, was a breakthrough pic for the actor, actually allowing him to showcase a dramatic range that has been reined in in his past projects.

In Independence Day 2, he’ll join a cast of fresh faces and familiar franchise players, including newcomers Maika Monroe (The GuestIt Follows), Jessie Usher »

Kajaki – The True Story Review: Could This Be The Best War Film Of The Year?

28 May 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Alchemy Releasing

Rating: ★★★★

Kajaki tells the horrifying true story of the events of September 6 2006 in Afghanistan. Events that would later become known as the Kajaki minefield incident.

Troops from the 3rd Battalion, Parachute Regiment of the British Army were stationed near the Kajaki Dam in Taliban-occupied Helmand Province, when a routine reconnaissance mission took a nasty turn, as a three-man patrol stumbled into a dry riverbed, unaware it was actually an unmarked minefield. A catastrophe of errors, coupled with military bureaucracy, transformed a dangerous situation into a nightmare of hellish proportions.

Gritty and realistic, the harrowing BAFTA nominated film looks and feels like The Hurt Locker, and has garnered much praise from Afghanistan veterans for its brutal authenticity. The true-life story has seen a few small changes to suit the big screen, but it remains unsanitised, completely brutal, and an accurate depiction of war in the desert waste that is Helmand Province. »

Composer Marc Streitenfeld Is Arduous In His Search for the Lost Chord

20 May 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marc Streitenfeld — the composer of “Prometheus,” “American Gangster” and the upcoming “Poltergeist” — can trace his musical roots back to a 19th-century troubadour whose family was executed after he wrote a song mocking the emperor of Germany.

“Which is funny, you know?” he says, laughing in his spacious, comfortable Venice, Calif., studio just days after completing the mix for the “Poltergeist” soundtrack. “That’s the only family musical connection I can find.”

It must have been enough.

The 40-year-old German native has joined the ranks of billion-dollar composers with five films for director Ridley Scott, including “Gangster” and “Prometheus,” and four more for other directors including “The Grey,” “Killing Them Softly” and “After the Fall.” He’s now scoring the series “Hand of God” for Amazon.

It seems like a meteoric rise, considering he’s only been composing for nine years. But this ex-guitarist has been working in various capacities in »

Cannes: ‘Blue Dog’ On Same Trail As 2011 Australian Hit ‘Red Dog’

20 May 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Production is under way on “Blue Dog,” a follow-up to 2011 Australian smash hit “Red Dog.”

Kriv Stenders is again set as director. Nelson Woss returns as producer and Daniel Taplitz again provides the screenplay.

The family film is an original story, separate from the wandering red dog story. Set in the late 1960s, “Blue Dog” is the story of a young boy (Levi Miller) and his dog, growing up on a cattle station in the middle of nowhere. The boy prepares himself for a life of dull hardship but instead finds adventure and friendship with a scrappy, one-of-a-kind pup.

Established Australian actors Bryan Brown (“Australia,” “Beautiful Kate”), John Jarratt (“Wolf Creek”), and U.K. actor Jason Isaacs (“Fury,” “Harry Potter,” “Black Hawk Down”), head the cast, along with newcomer Miller (“Pan,” “Terra Nova”) in the lead as the boy, Mick.

The Ten Best Action Movies of the New Millennium

12 May 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Who doesn’t love a good action movie? They’re among the most fun that Hollywood has to offer, particularly when they’re of a high quality. Later on this week, a reportedly amazing new one in Mad Max: Fury Road is hitting theaters, so to prep us all for that experience (I see it later on today, so yay for that), I wanted to do a countdown of the recent best that the genre has to offer. Essentially, every action flick since 2000 was eligible, and I whittled that down to a top ten list. It’s hardly the definitely “new millennium action movie” list, but I think it’s a pretty solid one, to say the least. You’ll be able to see the list below, which could very well be amended once Mad Max: Fury Road comes to town… Here now are my picks for the ten best »

A Dark Preview for Rene Perez's Playing with Dolls 2 Shows Destroyed Bodies and an Unsatisfied Killer

9 May 2015 5:17 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director Rene Perez (The Dead and the Damned) has completed shooting on Playing with Dolls 2. The sequel is also a slasher feature, with Prisoner Ayo-886 returning. This time a false reality show is set-up in an isolated wood. But, this location is just a bloody playground, for a roaming sociopath. Playing with Dolls 2 stars Richard Tyson (Black Hawk Down), Karin Isabell Brauns, Andy Espinoza Long, Colin M. Bryant and Elonda Seawood. Several photos from the film are hosted here. The stills tell a macabre story. Prisoner Ayo-886 can be seen sitting in his fleshy, remote home. Bodies litter the abode's exterior. As well, other stills show the reality show contestants boarding a plane, or fighting for their lives. Even further stills show bodies tied up, or the villain playing with a corpse or two. All of the stills provide an early look at Perez's latest feature, Playing with Dolls 2. A central setting for both films. »
