The movie features kind-of stars like Tara Reid, Kelly Osbourne, and Judah Friedlander as they struggle through a massive storm system that wreaks havoc on New York City — and results in the second dreaded Sharknado. So, a bit like The Day After Tomorrow… except marine-themed. And without Jake Gyllenhaal. But it does costar Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath, so that’s something to look forward to. »

The highly anticipated Godzilla reboot has just unleashed a new trailer and it looks pretty epic. The film appears to have a noticeably darker tone than the goofy 1998 version starring Matthew Broderick and directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow). The 2014 Godzilla comes from director Gareth Edwards, whose only earlier effort was the low-budget monster […]

After the recent “controversy” over the plot and casting of the Fantastic Four reboot, for which our very own site received a nasty email from a legal team representing 20th Century Fox over certain changes to the characters' origins [see story here], the studio behind the new version haven’t let it keep them down in regards to casting the film.
With a script being readied with director Josh Trank (Chronicle), Fox have begun screen testing various actors this week for the main roles in the superhero team. The Hollywood Reporter has apparently been informed that both Emmy Rossum (Shameless, The Day After Tomorrow) and Kate Mara (House of Cards) have both read for the role of Sue Storm a.k.a. The Invisible Woman. In addition, hot young actor Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment, The Spectacular Now) who has been previously linked heavily with involvement in the film, has tested for the Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic role. »

In news that is surely set to anger hardcore Fantastic Four fans even more than the casting of Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that the villain for Josh Trank’s reboot will be Dr. Doom (not surprising) – but that he might be a she (more surprising).
It sounds like the studio will probably go for a big name for its villain, in contrast to the latest casting news, which has it that Trank is currently screen testing several up-and-coming faces for its core crew. That Awkward Moment’s Miles Teller is in line for Mr. Fantastic, while Kate Mara (House Of Cards) and Emmy Rossum (The Day After Tomorrow) have both tested for Sue Storm.
Meanwhile, Christian Cooke has also tested for the role of Ben Grimm (aka The Thing). Whoever Trank goes with, they’ll join Jordan as The Human Torch – a race-switching role which, »

Yesterday, Josh Trank went on record to deny some recent plot rumours which had been doing the rounds and left many fans with a bad taste in their mouths about Fox’s The Fantastic Four reboot. Several names have already been mentioned when it comes to filling the roles of Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman and The Thing, with the only confirmed cast member being Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch.
The Hollywood Reporter now reveal that Kate Mara (127 House) and Emmy Rossum (The Day After Tomorrow) have both tested for the role of Susan Storm/The Invisible Woman, while Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) has auditioned for Reed Richard/Mr. Fantastic. English actor Christian Cook (Cemetery Junction) meanwhile is the only – and first – actor mentioned to be in the running to play Ben Grimm/The Thing.
However, the most interesting part of their report is the fact that »

Luke Graham with four Christmas comedown movies...
The holidays are a magic time of year, with snowflakes, miracles and family cheer. For many people, the Christmas and New Year period are the highlights of their year.
Well, enough of that. Now that it’s January, it’s time to get back to real world. Here are four films that will help remind you about some of the horrible things going on in the world.
4. The Impossible (2012)
The Impossible is about a family trying to survive the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The tsunami affected around 11 countries, killed at least 150,000 and destroyed millions of homes. It also occurred on Boxing Day, which is quite apt for an article about holiday come-downs.
On the one side, The Impossible is a great movie. It’s moving and well-acted (Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts play the parents) and has oodles of dramatic tension as »

He goes forth; he multiplies. Russell Crowe's latest choice of role is divinely inspired – and further lands him in the footsteps of Hollywood greats such as Heston, Burton and Flynn

Whether because of deep personal ambition or a sense of having come to American cinema as an outsider, the New Zealand-born Russell Crowe's role choices have often suggested a desire to belong to great Hollywood traditions.
Gladiator looked back to historical blockbusters such as Cleopatra and Ben-Hur, Cinderella Man joined the line of boxing movies that includes Raging Bull, and Robin Hood directly overlapped with one of the signature performances of an earlier leading man from the Antipodes, Errol Flynn. Even Crowe's recent cameo in Man of Steel – as Superman's dad – happened to take on a part formerly played by a cinematic legend, Marlon Brando.
And now the history man seems to be at it again. »
