Syfy’s 12 Monkeys TV show reveals core cast

29 July 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Emily Hampshire and Tom Noonan will star in the TV adaptation of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys…

With Fargo proving that it’s possible to make great television out of excellent films (as we discussed previously), there are now plenty of other big-to-small-screen transitions on the way.

Of particular interest to the geeky-minded will be Syfy’s 13-episode televisual version of Terry Gilliam’s mercilessly mind-bending surreal sci-fi flick 12 Monkeys, which has now found itself a cast.

Cole, Bruce Willis’ time-travelling mental patient in the film, will be played on telly by Aaron Stanford, perhaps best recognised as Pyro from X-Men 2 and X-Men: The Last Stand, although he's also held roles in the 2006 version of The Hills Have Eyes and TV's Nikita.

Villain-duties will be handled by one of our very favourite actors, the hugely experienced Tom Noonan, who you might recognise from Heat, Last Action Hero or RoboCop 2, amongst others. »

Emily Hampshire Takes on Brad Pitt's Role in Syfy's 12 Monkeys

29 July 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Well this is interesting.  Syfy has said repeatedly that they didn't want a simple re-tread of the classic Terry Gilliam film in their 12 Monkeys TV series, and even though their first trailer looks exactly like it, they're at least changing up our perceptions of the characters.  It's been announced that Emily Hampshire (a female if that was unclear) has snagged the role originally played by Brad Pitt (not a female).  

I'm never opposed to seeing some creative casting choices for roles, even for well known properties.  I've always been a big proponent of giving the best actor for the job the role (regardless of appearances).  So hopefully, that's what Syfy is doing here by casting Emily Hampshire in the role Brad Pitt occupied in the film, and not some PR stunt to gather attention:

Emily Hampshire (Cosmpolis, All The Wrong Reasons) has been cast in a major role in the Syfy series 12 Monkeys. »

Simon Kinberg says X-Men continuity has been completely reset, characters “could have been born earlier”

29 July 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you haven’t seen X-Men: Days of Future Past, spoilers follow…

So, 20th Century Fox made great strides in trying to fix some of the continuity issues with its X-Men franchise this year with the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with director Bryan Singer and writer-producer Simon Kinberg managing to find a way of bringing characters like Cyclops and Jean Grey back from the dead without having to reboot the franchise. But it seems they’re looking at going one step further, with Kinberg telling MTV that the new timeline could even see characters having been born earlier.

“We sort of reset the clock on Days Of Future Past. And so a lot could have changed from that point in 1973 forward. Meaning, people could have been born earlier. The whole world changed after those events. So things that were represented in X1, X2 and X3 wouldn’t »

The X-Men Universe Is Now Completely Reset, Says Producer

29 July 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While it was meant to clear up the continuity of the X-Men universe, many fans felt that X-Men: Days Of Future Past only confused the ongoing mythology even more. It seemed as if there were two universes, one dedicated to the exploits of the First Class gang in the past, and one gravitating towards Patrick Stewart's Professor X and his School Of Gifted Youngsters, a group we've grown to know pretty well over the years. But in a recent interview, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg suggests that you should probably forget all about that earlier timeline, because it's about to be irrelevant. MTV asked Simon Kinberg to reveal the Four Horseman Of The Apocalypse that would show up in X-Men: Apocalypse , acknowledging that we've already seen the most famous Horseman, Angel, in X-Men: The Last Stand. Kinberg wouldn't reveal if Angel was there, but he did confirm something that we've »

​Box Office: How Scarlett Johansson Beat Dwayne Johnson at the Action Movie Game

28 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In a normal summer, a debut like the estimated $29.0 million opening for Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" would be reason for its creators and distributor to rejoice. After all, the movie did better than pundits had predicted (in the low 20s), and it enjoyed a healthy per-screen average ($8,067 per venue). As an action star with a track record, Johnson would be said to have delivered on his promise, and there would be backslapping and cigars all around for a $100-million PG-13 movie that would surely earn back its investment from both domestic and overseas audiences (who bought an estimated $28.0 million worth of tickets) .

And yet, that opening was good enough only for second place. Coming out more than 50 percent ahead to debut in the No. 1 slot was "Lucy," a French-made R-rated action movie starring petite Scarlett Johansson, shot for a modest (by action standards) $40 million. Playing on 422 fewer screens than "Hercules, »

27 July 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

The Paramount Pictures and MGM adaptation of ‘Hercules,’ which is now playing in theaters, also stars Ian McShane, Reece Ritchie, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Joseph Fiennes and John Hurt.

Title teaser for Warcraft, plus Sdcc footage description

26 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This afternoon, Legendary Pictures took the opportunity to showcase director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) showcased footage from his forthcoming fantasy epic Warcraft, and while that footage probably won’t see the light of day online, Legendary has released an incredibly brief title teaser video, which you can watch here…

And via Screen Rant, here’s a brief description of the footage that was shown today:

The Warcraft teaser that followed was narrated by both a human and an Orc from the film (each seemed to be reading from their war diaries), indicating that the movie will very much examine what leads to the conflict between the two races from both of their perspectives (think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Most of the footage was focused on depicting the various environments and landscapes of Azeroth, there was also some material teasing actual battle sequences involving the two clans. »

Movie Review: Hercules

25 July 2014 9:54 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Thankfully, Hercules is not an origin film. Though it is about the titular hero from Greek myth, The Legend of Hercules (2014) from earlier this year already took that approach so it is just as well. Here, the fabled strong-man (Dwayne Johnson) has already performed all but one of his legendary labors when the story opens.

The newHercules was directed by Bret Ratner of Rush Hour (1998) fame and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) infamy. The screenplay was written by Ryan Condal and Evan Spillotopoulus. This is the former’s first feature film. The latter has primarily worked on Disney animated films like Cinderella III: A Twist in Time (2007). The storyline the screenplay is based on is a comic by Steve Moore. You might be thinking that this combination of folks behind the camera is a bit like the “potpourri” category on Jeopardy, and you would not be wrong – sounds weird, could be awful. »

'Hercules' (2014) Movie Review

25 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Originality in any form is not something you're going to find in Brett Ratner's Hercules. Take any PG-13 sword and sandal film you've seen lately -- glossy and gritty, drenched in black blood -- and add touches of Gladiator and Braveheart and you have this supposed "new" tale of the son of Zeus, or, as the film tells us... like... the real Zeus. You know, the Greek God and stuffc You know the one... rightc Yeah, we get it! The easiest comparison is to say Ratner has "updated" Hercules in the same way Marcus Nispel updated Conan, though this film does seem better than that one if only because it's shorter. The Nispel comparison seems apt, though, if you consider the visual palette Ratner is working with and the overall blunt force numbness of the plot. Adapted from Radical Studios' graphic novel "Hercules: The Thracian Wars", Hercules finds our »

'Hercules' Review Roundup: Dwayne Johnson Epic Gets Mixed Notices

24 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Hercules stars Dwayne Johnson as the titular mythic hero – a being more man than immortal that catapults himself to a position of renown and respect via tales that tell of his godlike prowess on the battlefield.

Directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand), this iteration of the Hercules story closely follows Steve Moore’s five-issue Radical Comics series Hercules: The Thracian Wars – replacing the idea of gods with the idea of a shrewd spin doctor and biographer Iolaus (Reece Ritchie). For every feat of Hercules the god, a new reality is depicted: the multi-headed hydra becomes a small army of men donning masks bearing the resemblance of a serpent.

'Hercules' Reviews

This latest iteration of the Hercules story dares not take itself too seriously, peppering Americanisms and jokey asides throughout the epic feature, much to many critics’ pleasant surprise. Hercules also has the benefit of Johnson as »

But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.

Film Review: ‘Hercules’

23 July 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On paper, Brett Ratner sounds like such an improbable choice to direct a large-scale ancient Greek epic that, going into his “Hercules,” one could only hope for a less aggressively preposterous affair than Renny Harlin’s bargain-basement “The Legend of Hercules” from earlier this year. The happy surprise is that Ratner’s “Hercules” is more than a mere improvement on its predecessor. It’s a grandly staged, solidly entertaining, old-fashioned adventure movie that does something no other Hercules movie has quite done before: it cuts the mythical son of Zeus down to human size (or as human as you can get while still being played by Dwayne Johnson). The result is a far classier pic than Paramount’s frenetic trailer — and decision to hide the film from reviewers until the eleventh hour — foretold, albeit one that will struggle to find its sea legs at a crowded and underperforming summer box office. »

First Wave Of Reviews For Brett Ratner's Hercules Hit - And They're Positive!

23 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Hercules looks like a lot of fun, but the fact that it's X-Men: The Last Stand's Brett Ratner in the director's chair has led to a lot of negativity towards the movie despite the fact that it stars the always great Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. You may be surprised then to see that the first wave of reviews for the movie are pretty positive. They're all from UK sites, and more should soon follow from the Us, but it does seem to be getting a pretty good reception so far. It's obviously no masterpiece, but still sounds like an awful lot of fun! Fancy getting your hands on a signed poster for Hercules? Well, be sure to click here for more on that.    Hercules is unabashedly a B-movie, with its faintly camp tone appearing to hark back to the Italian Hercules movies from the 1950s onwards, which starred such »

Movie Review – Hercules (2014)

23 July 2014 4:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hercules, 2014

Directed by Brett Ratner.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, Peter Mullan, Joseph Fiennes, Rebecca Ferguson, Aksel Hennie, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Reece Ritchie, Tobias Santelmann, and Irina Shayk.

Synopsis

After completing his twelve labours, Hercules, the Son of Zeus, is a mercenary for hire and he’s called to train the troops of King Cotys and fight the war lord Rhesus, who is killing the innocents of Thrace.

When watching Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson brutally slay a Hydra and an impenetrable Lion in the opening of Hercules, you wonder where these strong-men heroes have vanished to. Vin Diesel maybe? But it seems that Dwayne Johnson is the only man who truly goes toe-to-toe against Arnie and Stallone in their prime. Combine this unique choice of actor with the adoration of fantasy-set Game of Thrones, and you can connect the dots that justified the green-light of production of this flawed, »

Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy.
