Newest 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Trailer Blows the Doors Off with All New Footage

31 March 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. is doing anything and everything they can to raise audience awareness when it comes to Mad Max: Fury Road and it continues today with a new trailer loaded with new footage from the upcoming May 15 release. Featuring Tom Hardy as the title character, picking up where Mel Gibson left off, as the story falls somewhere in the midst of time between Mad Max and The Road Warrior. Is this a reinvention or just a case of finding a meaty place within a franchise within which there is more to be toldc As far as the story goes, I'm not sure, but as far as outlandish costumes, props and massive explosions I'm not sure it even matters as director George Miller appears to have captured a vision so intense it's hard to believe the same guy made those Happy Feet movies. Along with Hardy, the film co-stars Charlize Theron, »

George Miller on the origins of 'Fury Road' and the influence of 'Road Warrior'

24 March 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Warrior Of The Wasteland! The Ayatollah of rock and rollah!" When I heard myself bellow both of those phrases into a mic on the stage of the Paramount theater in Austin, I got this weird out-of-body feeling that sometimes happens when I'm doing something that younger film nerd me would have freaked out about completely. In this particular case, I was bringing George Miller to the stage to discuss his classic 1982 film, "The Road Warrior," known around the world by its more-accurate-but-less-poetic title, "Mad Max 2." It is safe to say that I adore George Miller. I think he's one of the most remarkable filmmakers to emerge in the '80s, and one of the things that I find most amazing about the "Fury Road" footage we've seen so far is that it feels like he hasn't lost a step. If anything, he's taking all of his experience and then »

In a little over three months, the killer convoy of George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road will roar into theaters with engines rumbling and gas pedals slammed to the floor, but it turns out that cinemas won’t be the only places fans can go to see Max Rockatansky, his apocalyptic pals, and ferocious foes.

Live-Action Astro Boy Adaptation Takes Off

5 February 2015 4:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Astro Boy may be heading back to the big screen, thanks to Australia’s Animal Logic Entertainment and Japan’s Tezuka Productions, which are plotting a live-action feature adaptation of the iconic manga.

No director is attached to the project, but the producing team, including producer Zareh Nalbandian (of Animal Logic) and exec-producers Jason Lust (of Animal Logic), Mike Callaghan and Reuben Liber (both of Ranger 7 Films), is about to head up a search for writers.

Animal Logic is acclaimed for its special effects work on projects as massive as Happy Feet and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the studio is also taking a stab at developing its own projects, many of which include a hybrid of animation and live-action. A Betty Boop movie is one such project in the works.

Astro Boy was massively popular in Japan as a 1950s manga created by Osama Tezuka, and multiple anime »

‘Inbetweeners’ Producer Chris Young Sets Up Production Studio on Isle of Skye

5 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For Scot producer Chris Young, “The Inbetweeners” franchise was like winning the lottery. When Channel 4 gave him the original sitcom to produce, he’d made a handful of small Scottish films over the previous 20 years, and was barely surviving.

Now, with a hit TV series that became a cultural sensation under his belt, and a healthy share of profits from the subsequent film — made for $7 million, and grossing almost $90 million worldwide — he’s spending his windfall to fulfill his dream of establishing a Gaelic film and TV studio on the Isle of Skye, the Scottish island where he has lived since 1999.

That’s about as far from the lucrative low-jinks of “The Inbetweeners” as it’s possible to get. But as Young explains, “What happens after sudden success, especially when it’s 25 years late, is that you can finally do what you’ve always wanted.”

Animal Logic Entertainment (“The Lego Movie”) has partnered with Japan’s Tezuka Productions to develop “Astro Boy” as a live-action feature film.

'Astro Boy' Live Action Movie Is Happening

4 February 2015 11:03 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Astro Boy is heading back to the big screen, this time as a live action adventure from Australia's Animal Logic Entertainment and Japan's Tezuka Productions. Jason Lust (Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio) will executive produce alongside Mike Callaghan (The Package; 6 Bullets) and Reuben Liber (One in the Chamber) for Ranger 7 Films. No writer or director has been set at this time.

Astro Boy was adapted into an animated adventure for the big screen in 2009. The property is based on the popular Japanese Manga created in the 1950s by Osamu Tezuka, whom many believe is Japan's answer to Walt Disney. Astro Boy has ran for decades in the comics and in newspaper strip form. It has been adapted into several animated series that have aired around the world. Hollywood has tried to launch a live action version in the past, but attempts have failed.

“Everybody’s gone out of their mind. You’re not the only one, Max.” Moviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of writer/director George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters.

One-Armed Charlize Theron In New Mad Max: Fury Road Images

4 January 2015 11:20 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In July, director George Miller ("Happy Feet") described Mad Max: Fury Road to MTV as "a 110-minute chase, in which we get to know the characters and their backstory as they go." He also said that it is quite a bit like Mad Max 2 as it takes place in "virtually all daylight." Funny enough, the first image below, with Tom Hardy ("The Drop") and Charlize Theron ("Snow White and the Huntsman"), showcases a rare nighttime moment. “Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just »
