Edgar Wright Debunks Casting Rumor of Alan Tudyk as Ant-man

29 December 2010 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

The director for the upcoming Marvel property Ant-Man has addressed the rumor of Alan Tudyk has already been cast in The Avengers and his film as the title character. The initial rumor claiming Dodgeball actor Tudyk had landed the role of Dr. Hank Pym originated from Mr. Orange, reporting via ComicBookMovie.com. The source claimed to be close to the production of director Joss Whedon's Avengers confirming that Tudyk was cast as Pym and that his transformation into Ant-Man would occur during a credits sequence along with Janet Van Dyne (aka Wasp) - as well as the creation of the robotic villain Ultron, who would be the primary antagonist in Wright's Ant-Man spin-off film. You can check out the original rumor below for more incorrect details: Edgar Wright has been tapped to helm an Ant- »

One of the highlights of the telly weekend arrives tonight, Friday  November 5th in the highly anticipated debut of The Walking Dead, at 10:00pm on FX. The first of six episodes of the comic book-based zombie series is entitled Days Gone Bye, and gets off to a gruesome start from soon after the first few frames.

The ninth series of Spooks concludes with its final episode airing on Monday, November 8th at 9:00pm on BBC1. We'll see how tightly the plot threads and nooses will be tied in what's certain to be an action-packed ending. »

The James Clayton Column: Calm down, dear! It's only a cameo!

4 November 2010 3:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Madonna in Die Another Day? Keith Richards in Pirates Of The Caribbean? James ponders the importance of celebrity cameos in the movies…

This article contains spoilers for Burke And Hare and other cameos, if you've not yet seen the films.

Wow! This article begins with an appearance from Bill Murray! Oh, he's missed the train and is now left behind on the platform and we're already heading down the line of no return. I guess the narrative isn't following him. Never mind. On with the journey...

(If this means nothing to you, you clearly haven't seen The Darjeeling Limited and I recommend you watch it. For a start, you get to see Bill Murray missing a train.)

Back on track and I'd like to talk about cameos. This concept is a curious phenomenon unique to the motion picture and television realms.They didn't have cameo appearances before the invention of cinema. »

Geek shows and movies on UK TV in the coming week

28 October 2010 1:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Stephen K Amos, Wallace and Gromit, Armstrong and Miller, Brimstone and the Psychoville Halloween Special. Plus great movies too in the coming week on UK TV!

This week, naturally, it's all about the scares and there are plenty of films and shows to provide the shivers for Halloween and the next seven days or so.

But the scheduling genies have also managed to squeeze in the laughs among the shrieks this week, for those too squeamish for the scream-inducing telly treats.

We start off with a newcomer to the eponymously named stand-up comedian sketch show club with The Stephen K Amos Show airing tonight, Friday, October 29th at 10:00pm on BBC2. There's plenty of room for series of this sort and we look forward, with a warm welcome, to Mr Amos' particular brand of funny stuff.

What's the best sight gag in a comedy?

18 October 2010 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sometimes, comedy doesn't need words. Here are your suggestions for the most immaculate banana skin moment

@philwest The scene in Naked Gun where the lorry crashes into the firework factory and as everyone stares at the multicoloured, explosive mayhem, our hero says: "Move along folks – nothing to see here."

@monkey2, @smallwordsplease,

@alicol The house falling on Buster Keaton in Steamboat Bill Jr

@johnfoley The mirror scene from the Marx brothers' Duck Soup cracks me up every time.

@RockyRocastle The horse that appears to be Buster Keaton wearing a dress and umbrella in Our Hospitality.

@YoghurtWeaver In The Big Lebowski, when the Dude spends ages hammering a plank against the door and then the door opens the other way.

@VirtuallyPastit Take the Money and Run: Woody Allen's character Virgil is shown performing in a marching band – as a cellist.

Matthew McConaughey Joins Jack Black in Bernie Comedy

1 October 2010 3:41 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Matthew McConaughey is joining Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine in "Bernie," the dark comedy being directed by Richard Linklater (School of Rock, Dazed and Confused). Also boarding the pic is Rip Torn (Dodgeball, Men in Black). "Bernie" is set in the small town of Carthage, Texas, and follows community leader/mortician Bernie (Black), who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy but very particular widow (MacLaine). When he kills her, he goes to great lengths to maintain the illusion that she is still alive. McConaughey will play the town's district attorney, always angling for re-election and suspicious about the widow's death. Torn will play Bernie's defense lawyer. The movie shoots next month in Texas. »

Peter Bradshaw on end credits

29 September 2010 1:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'Movie credits make me want to run away'

It may be wrong, but I just can't help myself. The moment a film fades to black and the end credits roll, I jump from my seat and I'm out of there. And so I have unwittingly cast my vote in a long-running debate: should film critics watch all the final credits, scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, right to the bitter end? Some believe that avoiding this is a dereliction of professional responsibility. Others think it's a fetish, and that the full-credit list is in any case a vainglory of cinema that other artforms do without.

Either way, I almost physically can't do it. Sitting there until that awful moment when the lights are brought weakly back up induces in me a strange tristesse and exhaustion: the complete opposite of that eternal thrill when the lights go down. I feel like Woody Allen in Play It Again, »

Dancing With The Stars Announces New Season Cast – Does Anyone Care?

31 August 2010 8:19 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

I have to admit from the start that the popularity of Dancing with the Stars completely eludes me. It was an interesting bit of fun the first time around, but mainly for its novelty value. There was a nice combination of showcasing famous people, and giving them something to do that was mildly entertaining without being embarrassing simply for the sake of being embarrassing.

The second and third seasons had a few moments of interest, even if the biggest tune-in sell was watching people who weren’t any good, rather than watching any “talent” take shape. Now, however, I just don’t get it anymore. Much like the Circus of the Stars of days gone by, the novelty is over, “Stars” is becoming more and more loosely defined, and we are thus at a point where we have to come clean and admit we’re watching ballroom dancing. And, much »

Police allegedly found him inside a Litchfield Bancorp branch in Salisbury, Ct drunk and carrying a gun in January. The Dodgeball star previously said that he thought the bank was his home.

Alan Tudyk Joins Sector 7 in ‘Transformers 3′

5 August 2010 4:00 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Even though it’s nearing the late stages of filming, Transformers 3 is making casting-related headlines. We knew Alan Tudyk had been cast in the film, but were not told who exactly he would play.

The star of Firefly and Dodgeball will portray another Sector 7 agent. The role puts him alongside the most annoying human character John Turturro’s Agent Simmons in the agency created to control the robots in disguise.

You have to give Michael Bay and Paramount some credit – they upped the ante on the franchise’s human cast (though some fans would probably have preferred less human and more robot-focused casting). In addition to Tudyk, Transformers 3 will add John Malkovich, Patrick Dempsey, Ken…

Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’ Sets Production Date; Cast in Talks

4 August 2010 2:19 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After seemingly spending the best part of three years in development hell, Kevin Smith’s Red State has a production start date and is close to confirming it’s supporting cast.

Smith tweeted that production would begin on September 22nd, and now rumors are suggesting that Michael Angarano (Lords of Dogtown), Kyle Gallner (The Nightmare on Elm Street remake) and Stephen Root (Office Space, Dodgeball ) are in talks to join the confirmed Michael Parks (Grindhouse) in the quote-unquote horror film, which is based on the controversial pastor Fred Phelps.

Melissa Leo (Righteous Kill) is also said to be circling the project, although earlier reports that Dermot Mulroney was also in line for the film appear to be wide of the mark.

If the rumors are true, it’s a solid cast which could get the hype starting on the somewhat troubled project.

Top 10 frat pack movies

24 June 2010 5:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Steven celebrates the best movies of comedy actors including Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller and Jack Black, otherwise known as the Frat Pack…

Disclaimer: This list is best appreciated by those with a taste for ‘stupid' comedic gags, sexual innuendo, and the like.

In the past ten years, cinema has been graced (and disgraced) by a collection of comedies featuring the same few recurring actors. Whether you love them or hate them, there's always something to be giggled at in each of the movies that have come to define the Frat Pack, the 21st century's answer to the Sinatra-Bogart alliance of the 1950s (just with some very tangible differences). Made up of the likes of Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Owen Wilson, Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn, the Frat Pack has taken the box office by storm, cashing in on hits and flops alike.

Yahoo has signed up Ben Stiller, star of films including Zoolander and Dodgeball, to create an online current affairs show starring his parents.

Stiller, who is appearing at several events at the Cannes International Advertising Festival with Yahoo, will create an as yet undetermined number of "webisodes" of probably less than 10 minutes in length. The series will run exclusively online on Yahoo.

The Remake Game: Toy Story

22 June 2010 7:48 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Of all the impossible remakes that we've proposed so far in The Remake Game, I think we can all agree that this would be the least likely of the bunch - a live-action remake of 1995's animated milestone, Toy Story. Granted, it's been fifteen years, and the big bad movie-makin' machine didn't even wait fifteen months before getting to work on another version of Death at a Funeral (I'd struggle to consider either one a classic, though).

Seeing as we're working with a non-existent project, I think it's fair to cheat a bit and include a few of our favorites from Toy Story 2 while we're at it. Seeing as it just came out four days ago, we're not going to rope in the new characters of Toy Story 3 just yet.

And so, in the Hollywood version (surely pitched as being in the vein of Night at the Museum »

The 'A-Team' Effect: 4 Other 80's TV Shows On Their Way To The Big Screen

9 June 2010 7:54 AM, PDT | AMC - Script to Screen | See recent AMC - Script to Screen news »

This weekend marks the opening of the highly anticipated film "The A-Team", the action film based on the wildly popular 80's television show.  On a personal note I've been dying to see this film ever since the first trailer came out.

TV shows being made into movies is hardly a new phenomena.  "Star Trek", "Transformers", "The Brady Bunch", "Mission Impossible", "Lost In Space"... well... the list goes on and on and on.

One of the ripest picking grounds for TV shows to be adapted into movies seems to be the 1980's, and "The A-Team" is just the lastest... but it certainly isn't going to be the last.

Right now there are a handful shows from the 80's being developed for the big screen, and right now I thought I'd run down 4 high profile ones that you may not have known were coming to an AMC near you in the foreseeable future! »
