Charles Dance (TV’s Game of Thrones, The Imitation Game) and Rutger Hauer (Sin City, Batman Begins) star in this epic adventure about a 17th century Dutch admiral, who must lead his fleet to defend his homeland from the terrorising forces of England.
Admiral Michiel de Ruyter is the most famous, and one of the most skilled admirals in Dutch history, most celebrated for his role in the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the 17th century. He was held in the highest esteem by his sailors and soldiers, who used the term Bestevaêr (Grandfather) for him, as a result of his disregard for hierarchy and his refusal to back away from risky and bold undertakings despite his usually reserved and calculated nature.
We are giving one lucky reader the chance to win Admiral on DVD due to be released on 3rd August 2015. The winner will also receive a LG 42″ inch entry Led full HD TV, »

Even though he’s handling what many consider to be the most complex and intricate film of 2016, Zack Snyder has revealed his apprehension about a Batman solo movie, and how the rejuvenated DC-verse owes a significant debt to Christopher Nolan and his esteemed trilogy.
Speaking to Empire magazine after the outlet blew the lid off the director’s upcoming cinematic showdown, Snyder admitted that he doesn’t envy the director – said to be Ben Affleck himself – who takes on the mantle of The Caped Crusader’s standalone feature, as the prospect of bringing Bruce Wayne’s famed vigilante to the screen is a more difficult undertaking following The Dark Knight Trilogy.

Only separated by two years “The Man Who Falls” and “Year One” attempt to tell the origin of Bruce Wayne becoming Batman. Frank Miller’s story is much better known than Dennis O’Neil’s one shot, but O’Neil had a much bigger impact on the tone of Batman Begins. Christopher Nolan showcases Batman’s search for his abilities rather than giving them to Bruce Wayne at the beginning of the film. Thus, Bruce’s training and its effect is of paramount importance during the film.
“The Man Who Falls” is a short story about the travels of Bruce before he became Batman. »

Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?
Daniel Craig will make his 007 comeback later this year with the release of Spectre, a continuation of the story started in Sam Mendes's Skyfall. Craig has re-energised the Bond franchise since his debut in 2006's Casino Royale, and all signs point towards Spectre being another worthy addition to the series.
Digital Spy runs down everything you need to know about Spectre ahead of its cinema debut on October 23.
The new trailer is pretty spectacular
A helicopter doing a midair cork-screw, a tip of the hat to the On Her Majesty's Secret Service theme... and was that Blofeld? The latest trailer for Spectre is something of a corker and promises to be an homage-packed action-fest aiming to top Skyfall. Consider us excited.
A threat from James Bond's past will return
With Warner Bros. new Batman set to hit the big screen in two different films next year, and reports of Ben Affleck directing the next solo Batman adventure, I've been thinking a lot about his rogues gallery, and the villains who deserve some big screen love. Come inside to find out why I think these five villains deserve a shot at taking down the Bat!
I really enjoy the Batman films Nolan has given us, but while they have some fantastical elements, his penchant for choosing more ‘real world’ type villains has left me wanting. Obviously, from what we've seen so far, DC's upcoming slate of films doesn't seem to be adhereing to that, and they're embracing the more ridiculous ideas and characters. Killer Croc is jumping to the big screen with a host of other crazy villains in next year's Suicide Squad, so the doors are obviously open for things to get crazy. »

It's early days in the DC movie universe. We're effectively one movie in, with Zack Snyder's 2013 Superman reboot, Man Of Steel, proving fairly divisive. For Warner Bros itself, it just about did the job, proving a far more commercial successful venture than its other recent non-Dark Knight trilogy comic book blockbuster, Green Lantern.
Over the weekend, the new, extended trailer for the second DC movie universe film, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice debuted, and seemed to be met more positively than the last. Warner Bros debuted the footage, along with material from its other 2016 DC release, Suicide Squad, at San Diego Comic-Con. The footage from both films has subsequently made it (legally) online.
What's interesting is that the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer »
I believe David Ayer when he says that he's pissed about the leak of the "Suicide Squad" trailer over the weekend. I also believe he's got nothing to worry about when it comes to the official release of that footage this afternoon, because the more I look at it, the more I like what he's doing. It feels like DC Films is off to a wildly divisive start, and this is going to be more of the same, and frankly, I'm fine with that. It gets boring when everyone loves everything. One of the things that is clear from the response to the DC Films footage shown this weekend is that it will not be for everyone, and they are making big, clear choices about how they're going to approach this world they're building. "Maybe Superman served as some sort of… beacon," Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) says at one point, »

By the time that we meet Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) in Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman, the man will have been through some shit. This isn.t Christian Bale.s bat-in-training from Batman Begins, or even Michael Keaton.s polished hero from the Tim Burton days. This dude is at a breaking point, and it seems it.s The Joker (Jared Leto) pushing him there. So many hints dropped to the Joker in the new Batman v Superman trailer that we.re beginning to wonder: will we see the Clown Prince of Gotham in Snyder.s 2016 movie? That.s a "friendly" note sent to Bruce Wayne following the death (murder?) of countless Wayne Financial employees in the final battle from Man of Steel. Bruce, as Batman, couldn.t save them, and The Joker just wants to remind him of the amount of blood on his hands. Naturally, this reminder »
So... Warner is running a little late. Maybe Zack Snyder is still exhausted from driving the Batmobile around San Diego last night. As always, Warner Bros. has added more screens, and it wraps around the audience further than every before. Aisha Tyler was brought out as a moderator of the panel, which is a nice change-up. The first big blast of footage was for "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.", and it looks like a party. I have a huge fetish for '60s spy films, and it's pretty obvious Guy Ritchie does as well. Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill look like a really solid comic and action team, and Alicia Vikander continues her triumphant 2015 with a role that looks like it's going to be huge fun. Cavill, Hammer, and Vikander walked out to sit with Tyler, and they jumped into talking about the tone of the film, which is blatantly funny »

Since its release in cinemas a few weeks ago, Jurassic World has taken the box office by storm, breaking a number of box office records with its worldwide opening weekend receipts of more than $500 million. Though it hasn’t received critical acclaim universally across the board (it is currently sitting with an 82% audience score on RottenTomatoes and a 59 on Metacritic), its content has clearly resonated with audiences, who have continued to flock to see it in droves. The lucrative Christmas DVD/Blu-Ray release period will follow later in the year, where the film will likely compete with The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, for the coveted top sales spot.
The film is one of many reboots, remakes or long-in-the-making sequels (all henceforth grouped under the term of ‘reboots’) that have been released in recent years, as the revivification of franchises from the 1980s and 1990s has become more and »

Paramount tried a few approaches in the new Terminator reboot. But if a franchise hits the doldrums, how can a studio resurrect it?
Fingers are being crossed at Skydance and Paramount Pictures that the critical mauling handed out to Terminator: Genisys last week won't be reflected fully in the box office numbers. So far, the plan for a new trilogy of Terminator films is arguably just about alive, courtesy of a total gross for the new film of $131m worldwide. That's below expectations, but if it can eventually crawl its way to $400m, that's probably enough to move ahead with a Genisys sequel (it'd be more than the hugely-acclaimed Mad Max: Fury Road).
But even if a new film gets greenlit, it's clear that things have to change again. As many have pointed out, the consensus is now that there have been more bad-to-middling Terminator films than good ones, »
With the much talked about Batman v Superman on the way and the equally speculated upon Suicide Squad on the horizon, the DC universe is really beginning to take shape. However, at the time of writing this, there has been very little in the way of talk regarding Ben Affleck’s first solo outing and more importantly who out of Batman’s vast rouges gallery he will be doing battle with. There are many a great option to be had and some equally obvious choices for who is most likely to appear in Batman’s first handful of outings since Christopher Nolan’s seminal Dark Knight trilogy, so lets dive in and take a look at a number of the most worthy candidates to terrorise the latest incarnation of The Caped Crusader.
Take a look at that face above, »

Ahead of the San Diego Comic-Con International, Boom! Studios has revealed details of its new project from acclaimed writer Grant Morrison, who is teaming with artist Dan Mora (Hexed) for the six-issue Santa Claus origin series Klaus. Here’s the cover to the first issue, via Cbr…
“Weirdly enough, no one’s done the origin story [of Santa Claus],” said Morrison. “I wanted to do this, because my take on it was just to do it like a superhero. I think no one’s done that, and it was weird that no one’s thought about that character — what was he like when he was young? How did he get the sack? How did he get the reindeer? How did he get the sleigh? It seemed like such an obvious story… The first image that came to me, and this kind of sums it all up, is this ferocious-looking, almost Conan the Barbarian »

One of the most famous lines uttered by Arnold Schwarzenegger's murder-powered cyborg is "I'll be back." And on July 1, the T-800 will once again be true to his word when "Terminator: Genisys" hits theaters.
The fifth "Terminator" movie aims to robo-punch you right in the nostalgia center, much like "Jurassic World" did, with its twisty, time-travel story that pays homage to the franchise's first two films (while completely, and wisely, ignoring the existence of meh entries "Rise of the Machines" and "Salvation.")
To prepare you for another trip to the land of Skynet, here are all the things you need to know about "Genisys," which picks up where James Cameron's original 1984 film left off.
1. It's a Reboot. »

Earlier this month, June 15th marked the 10th anniversary of Batman Begins, the franchise reboot from director Christopher Nolan that launched the most acclaimed film franchise adaptation of The Caped Crusader to date.

With the release of Batman: Arkham Knight this week, Samuel Brace takes a trip back to the Asylum…
This week, as Batman: Arkham Knight hit consoles and PC’s across the globe, I sat there unable to refrain from hearkening back to years past, 2009 in particular and the series debut game that so many of us still hold dearly. Batman: Arkham Asylum, the game that started it all, was released that summer only one short year removed from Christopher Nolan’s seminal superhero feature The Dark Knight, and I very much remember the excitement I felt at that time, the thirst to consume anything and everything Batman, the hunger to put myself into the world of that movie, of that franchise, how desperate I was to put on the virtual cowl and become the Batman.
It didn’t matter that the aesthetic of Asylum was quite different from that of Nolan’s movies, »

In The Karate Kid, it's Mr Miyagi. In Back To The Future, it's Doc Brown. In X-Men, it's Professor Xavier. The mentor is a familiar archetype in the movies, and it's a device which is as old as storytelling itself.
The mentor is commonly characterised as a wise, usually much older being who provides wisdom and useful objects to a story's hero or heroine. The Star Wars movies have introduced numerous mentor figures in the entries released so far: dignified old Jedi knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, the benevolent Yoda and Qui-Gon Jinn, the mentor for a young Obi-Wan in The Phantom Menace.
In each instance, we see the mentor provide their students with teaching and gifts »
Everyone keeps expected video game movies to take off the way superhero movies have, but that just hasn't happened yet, with most being critically derided and not very well received by fans. Hollywood is hoping to change that with two big 2016 releases, Warcraft and Assassin's Creed. If they are as successful as expected, more will surely follow. Including a movie based on the popular Deus Ex franchise. Square Enix, publisher of the title, arrived at E3 2015 with, not news of the movie, but news of an announcement for the movie. Yes, according to producer Adrian Askarieh, we'll definitely know more about the Deus Ex movie sometime this summer.
The new video game sequel Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was being showcased at E3. It is a follow-up to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a title in the franchise that became so popular, it rejuvenated the series and was set up as a movie at CBS Films. »
