Shared Universe: Stephane Ceretti talks about Guardians of the Galaxy

With Guardians of the Galaxy arriving on DVD & Blu-Ray on November 24, 2014 in the UK, Trevor Hogg chats with Stephane Ceretti about supervising the visual effects work required to bring the cinematic vision of James Gunn and Marvel to the big screen…

James Gunn

“Before we met, James had written a 15 page document of references and visual things he had in his mind,” recalls Stephane Ceretti who was called upon to produce the visual effects for Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) under the direction of filmmaker James Gunn (Slither). “He always wanted to do things where you had a mixture of beautiful and ugly within the same frame. We talked about Forbidden Planet [1956] and all of these classic Sci-Fi movies that were colourful and vibrant.

Chris Pratt raps Eminem’s ‘Forgot About Dre’ and talks Knightrider rumours

Those who have already seen Guardians of the Galaxy will be familiar with Peter ‘Star-Lord’ Quill’s Awesome Mixtape Vol. 1 that soundtracks the movie. In real life, however, the actor who portray hims – Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie, Her) – has revealed quite a different musical taste to Motown records and Blue Suede one-hit wonders.

Talking to Shade45 radio station, Pratt praised Dr Dre’s album ’2001′ as his own ‘Awesome Mixtape,’ knowing every word off by heart. And he proves it. Check out the rather impressive Pratt rap below (Warning: the clip contains adult language)…

Because we’re also a serious movie news site, we should probably mention the actual bit of news to come from that clip. Not the abscence of any black dinosaurs in Jurassic World (“I’m not sure scientifically that holds up”), but that Pratt first heard about the Knightrider film adaptation, in which he is rumoured to star,

Superman Reboot Grossed $3 Million More Than Originally Estimated - Now No.2 Non-Sequel in June (Sort of)

Man of Steel weekend box office: Above estimates, but real June record remains beyond the reach of Superman 2013 reboot (image: Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel) Somewhat surprisingly — it’s usually the other way around — Warner Bros.Man of Steel grossed more than $3 million above studio estimates released on Sunday, June 16, 2013. Directed by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch), and starring Henry Cavill (The Tudors, possibly the upcoming The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), the 2013 Superman reboot scored $116.61 million from 4,207 North American locations according to weekend box-office actuals found at Box Office Mojo. Once Thursday evening figures are added, the $225 million-budgeted Man of Steel‘s domestic cume reached $128.68 million by Sunday evening. Now, Man of Steel‘s adjusted $116.61 million doesn’t change the June Box-Office Record Chart in any way.

Sequels That Just Can't Get Going

Sequels That Just Can't Get Going
By Colin Greten

Jj Abrams' "Star Trek" brought the long running franchise into the 21st century, capturing massive audiences and creating a whole new generation of Trekkies. The film was such a huge success that sequel rumors began to swirl as the credits started to roll.

Today, audiences finally have something tangible to salivate at in the form of the new "Star Trek Into Darkness" teaser trailer. The trailer is awesome, but what it represents is what is really exciting. It means that this movie is actually being made. While there are so many sequels and remakes being made in Hollywood these days, there are plenty of sequels that audiences have longed for years that fall by the wayside for any number of reasons.

There is a sequel to "The Collector", a gore-filled horror film that grossed a mere $7 million, but no sequel to "The Italian Job" a movie that grossed nearly 200 million.

Wamg Interview – Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Stars Daniel Cudmore and Charlie Bewley

Interview conducted by Tom Stockman November 2, 2012

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 opens Friday and Summit Entertainment sent two actors to St. Louis last week to help promote the film. Charlie Bewley plays the vampire Demetri and Daniel Cudore plays the vampire Felix. Both are members of the Volturi clan.

Charlie Bewley (Demetri) made his major motion picture debut as the Volturi Demetri in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, followed by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1.

A former athlete with a penchant for travel and adventure, Bewley only took up acting five years ago, but already has a string of recent successes to his name: co-staring in the 2011 Sundance Grand Jury winner Like Crazy, and also playing a key lead alongside a stellar ensemble cast in Russian/Us collaboration Soldiers of Fortune.

Best News of the Day: Syfy Acquires Primeval: New World for Us

We have been reading, longingly, about the upcoming Canadian spinoff of the UK dinosaurs-in-the-modern-world series Primeval entitled Primeval: New World. We thought it would be fun. Then when we heard Niall Matter (Zane on Eureka) had been cast, we got even more jealous of our northern neighbors. Then when we heard it would be promoted as “darker and scarier” than the original series from whence it sprung, it sounded right up our alley. But since it wasn’t literally up Our alley, we sat and stewed.

But that is all behind us now as we rejoice over today’s announcement that Syfy has picked up the series for the U.S. market. First we have a trailer for you to check out, so that you can be as excited as we are, before getting to the details of the press release:

Marvel’s Next Avengers Film #8: Moon Knight

With a sequel to The Avengers officially confirmed by Marvel/Disney, comic book fans the world over will be contemplating which of the publisher’s other heroes could be added to the line-up, potentially getting their own solo movie as soon as 2014 – filling the popularly acknowledged gap in the schedule alongside Captain America 2 that summer.

Of course, we have to bear in mind that Marvel Studios do not own the film rights to characters as key to their comic book universe as Daredevil, Spider-Man, Wolverine or the Fantastic Four – all of whom have allied with or become members of the Avengers at one time or another – but with that consideration in place, here is another suggestion for Marvel’s Next Avengers Film:

Moon Knight (Marc Spector)

Why?: Moon Knight is often blagged as being a rip-off of Batman. But anyone who says this clearly has not read the comics.
