Crackle’s Original Film ‘The Throwaways’ To Debut On December 19

20 November 2014 12:40 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Crackle has some new spy thriller entertainment coming your way. The online distributor will release its original, feature-length film The Throwaways on its site on December 19, 2014. The film centers around a character named Drew Reynolds (played by Sam Huntington of Being Human and Superman Returns fame), a hacker captured by the CIA and offered either a job with the organization or life in prison. Reynolds joins a “throwaway” group of the CIA’s least-favored agents, including Colonel Christopher Holden (played by James Caan from The Godfather) and combat specialist Dan Fisher (portrayed by Kevin Dillon of Platoon). Together, the three aim to take out a cyber-terrorist bent on destruction. Written by Michael Ross of Jerry McGuire, The Throwaways co-stars Katie McGrath from Merlin, Christian Hillborg of The Bridge, and Jack Kesy of The Strain. Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Avengers) and his colleague Don Handfield (Kill the Messenger) executive »

Blu-ray Review – X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014)

10 November 2014 5:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: Days of Future Past, 2014.

Directed by Bryan Singer.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Lucas Till, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Evan Peters, Booboo Stewart, Omar Sy, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto, Evan Jonigkeit, Josh Helman and Peter Dinklage.

Synopsis:

The X-Men send Wolverine to the past in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.

“Please. We need you to hope again…”

Quite an apt statement lifted from Bryan Singer’s return to the comic-book realm that feels much more personal than just that of a desperate future Professor X (the ever miraculous Patrick Stewart) as he begs, pleads his past self (James McAvoy) through a inter-dimensional/time-loop to get back on a horse called Cerebro. Indeed, it feels like it’s Singer doing the pleading, »

In Defence Of... Brett Ratner's much-maligned X-Men: The Last Stand

10 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When news broke that Bryan Singer would be returning to the fold for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, much to the delight of mutant fan-peoples, the director sweetened the deal even further with a promise. "There will be some fixing," he said, hinting that his third X-flick (after X-Men and X2) would address perceived problems with X-Men: The Last Stand, aka the threequel Singer dumped in favour of Superman Returns.

Here's the thing: X-Men: The Last Stand didn't need fixing. In a world where movie threequels often topple promising trilogies, it stands out as a fun, action-packed, stakes-raising gambit that features some of the trilogy's boldest set pieces and more than a few gob-smacking twists. Picking up months after X2's downbeat, watery climax, we find the X-Men mourning the death of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) even as Worthington Labs announce they've found a mutant cure. Needless to say this divides the mutants, »

Michael Shannon as Elvis and Kevin Spacey as Nixon in New Movie

6 November 2014 7:13 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

So here's a crazy-sounding film project with an amazing cast for us to keep our eye on. The movie is called Elvis & Nixon, and Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) has been cast as Elvis Presley, and Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns) will be playing President Richard Nixon.

This is some incredibly interesting casting, and just that alone is enough to get me excited about this film project. The movie is based on the fascinating true story about how Elvis's urgent request of Nixon. Here's the synopsis:

Two men at the height of their powers, conscious they could not stay on top forever, both ripped with fear of the inevitable, sharing one famous private moment in the Oval office.  Elvis & Nixon recounts the morning of December 21st 1970, when the King of Rock’ n Roll (Michael Shannon) showed up on the White House lawn to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, »

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

'Arrow' Season 3: Brandon Routh Teases the Atom Costume

5 November 2014 6:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Brandon Routh fully transform into the Atom on Arrow this season? That is a question many fans have been asking since the former Superman Returns star was first announced as Ray Palmer for the currently airing run of Season 3 episodes.

Now we are a little closer to an answer, as the actor hints pretty heavily that we will, in fact, see him suiting up as the iconic hero from the DC Comics. Brandon Routh jumped on Twitter yesterday to reveal an image of himself undergoing a plaster transformation, with the caption: "All in a days work&#160#RayPalmer #Arrow."

While the face mold certainly indicates that he is gearing up for something bigger than what we've seen up until this point, when and if the Atom actually does show up, it won't be until Arrow Season 3 returns for the second half of it's run in 2015, possibly appearing in Episode 11 currently titled Midnight City. »

Everything we know about X-Men: Apocalypse

5 November 2014 6:49 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From shoot dates to its villain, through to who's returning and more, here's what we know so far about Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Spoilers: There's nothing heavy in here, but inevitably light spoilers, based on what we know from the comics, and a released synopsis.

X-Men: Apocalypse is now most certainly set and ready to take the box office by storm in summer 2016, with Bryan Singer back on board to direct the film that he first announced on his very own Twitter page. And as the follow-up to the most successful X-Men movie of all time, this past summer’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past, the new upcoming X-gene adventure is sure to be the most anticipated cinematic event in the saga yet.

So what do we know about the film? Glad you asked. Here's everything we've gleaned so far...

Looks Like Brandon Routh May Don The 'Atom' Costume On Arrow After All

4 November 2014 5:15 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

All in a day’s work… #RayPalmer #Arrow @CW_Arrow pic.twitter.com/w4yFNxOn2g — Brandon Routh (@BrandonJRouth) November 4, 2014 When Marc Guggenheim was quizzed on whether we'd eventually see Palmer suited up as The Atom, he replied that if that was to happen, it'd more likely be on the CW's superpower-heavy The Flash show as opposed to Arrow where Brandon Routh can currently be seen in the role. But does the above pic tell a different story? The Superman Returns actor has said that there might be costume-related plans for Palmer which wouldn't necessarily lead to him gaining his shrinking powers, so perhaps that's what's being teased here. Maybe we'll find out when Arrow returns to our screens tomorrow night. »

Shelf Life: Trick r' Treat

26 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. Trick r' Treat is probably the truest definition of a cult classic. Despite finishing production in 2007, the movie wasn't available for public consumption until it's 2009 DVD release. Before that, the movie was  shown at conventions and festivals, and numerous free screenings, sponsored by the likes of Ain't it Cool News and Fangoria, when word of mouth spread and the fan base grew. So what made this small, Halloween themed horror anthology so popular? Well, there are many reasons, but the main one is one character: Sam. The seeds for Trick r' Treat were sown in 1996, when the movie writer/director Michael Dougherty (co-screenwriter on X-Men 2 and Superman Returns) noticed Halloween didn't have an iconic figure to represent it. Christmas has Santa Claus, Easter the Easter Bunny, »

Will Dawn of Justice Focus Mostly on Batman and Snub Superman?

24 October 2014 10:45 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Will the Dark Knight cast a big shadow over the Man of Steel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Insiders say that DC/Warner Bros. is planning to put the spotlight firmly on their box-office champ, the Caped Crusader of Gotham, rather than on the man from Metropolis.

 Superman may become a super sidekick in the upcoming Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice. According to the site Batman-On-Film.com, insiders say that the film will be very “Bat-heavy”, and Superman will be shoved down to the second rung of the ladder.

DC has a lot of faith in Batman, since he’s been their most successful franchise player, going all the way back to Tim Burtons’s hit films starring Michael Keaton.  The Nolan trilogy was a gold mine for Warner Bros. in recent years. However, they don’t have the same faith in the man from Krypton, »

Is Superman being shortchanged by the DC movie universe?

20 October 2014 2:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Superman will appear at least three times in movies in the next five years. But will any of them be a standalone Man Of Steel adventure?

A further, potentially important casting rumour for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice landed over the weekend, which you can read about - with appropriate spoiler pre-warning - here. The bottom line remains of Zack Snyder's March 2016 movie is this: it's going to have an awful lot of DC characters in it.

Originally mooted as the follow-up to 2013's Man Of Steel, the film is said to pick up from where that movie left things, but also add a whole host of new faces. It's already well known that Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman are on board. But rumours suggest we might also get an appearance from Aquaman (as played by Jason Momoa), whilst Jesse Eisenberg joins as »

Box Office: Guardians Of The Galaxy Opens In China; Tops Man Of Steel's Ww Total

12 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Guardians Of The Galaxy debuted in China with $26.6M--and now $687M worldwide, surpassing Man Of Steel. — Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) October 12, 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy has only just debuted in China, so it should be very interesting to see how much its run there adds to its eventual box office haul and where it will ultimately place when compared to this year's other three big Marvel movies; Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($714 million), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($708 million), and X-Men: Days of Future Past ($746 million). The fact that it has now beaten Man of Steel takes nothing away from Zack Snyder's impressive Superman reboot (especially as it faced moviegoers sceptical of the iconic DC Comics superhero after the tepid response to Superman Returns), but you have to imagine that Kevin Feige and company are patting themselves on the back for making such a huge success out of a group »

Reeve Receives Standing Ovation at Oscar Ceremony (Video)

Christopher Reeve Foundation for spinal cord and stem cell research (photo: Darryl Hannah and Christopher Reeve in 'Rear Window') (See previous post: "'Superman' Christopher Reeve and his Movies: Ten-Year Death Anniversary.") In his 1998 autobiography Still Me, Christopher Reeve recalled: "At an especially bleak moment [prior to an operation that might result in his death], the door [of his hospital room] flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay." The "old friend" was the recently deceased Robin Williams, whom Reeve had befriended while both were studying at Juillard. Eventually, Reeve became a staunch advocate for spinal cord and stem cell research, sponsoring with his wife the Christopher Reeve Foundation — later renamed the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation (and formerly known »

Superman Returns & X-men Origins: Wolverine Concept Art

8 October 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Conceptual illustrator Dorotka Sapinska worked on designs for Bryan Singer's Superman Returns (2006) and Gavin Hood's X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). The first set is from Superman Returns and includes various hairstyle designs for Lex Luthor's henchwoman, Kitty Kowalski (played by Parker Posey). Also, tattoo designs for Lex Luthor's henchman that is killed by a paino  Jason White (Tristan Lake Leabu), aka Superboy, happens to fling at him. The second set of images were for X-Men Origins: Wolverine and they feature tattoo designs for The Blob/Fred J. Dukes (Kevin Durand) and other mutant characters.  He's back. A hero for our millennium. And not a moment too soon, because during the five years (much longer in movie-fan years!) Superman sought his home planet, things changed on his adopted planet. Nations moved on without him. Lois Lane now has a son, a fiance and a Pulitzer for "Why the World »
