Tilda Swinton Joins The Marvel Cinematic Universe For Doctor Strange

27 May 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Benedict Cumberbatch will have some company as he traverses the world of sorcery in Marvel’s Doctor Strange – THR is reporting today that Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive) will be taking on the role of a Tibetan mystic known as The Ancient One (because you didn’t think she’d be playing a straight love interest, now did ya?) in the Scott Derrickson-directed blockbuster, which is intended to simultaneously introduce the Sorcerer Supreme and the more magical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

What Marvel fans will make of the casting (The Ancient One was a man in the comics) should be interesting, but there’s no denying the attraction of casting a uniquely talented actress like Swinton in the part of a major comic-book character. She’s transformed herself again and again in everything from Snowpiercer to The Grand Budapest Hotel in recent years, so it’s »

Us horror network Chiller announces new programming

5 May 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

On the heels of Animal, its most-watched original movie to date – and the SXSW 2015 premiere of its original movie The Boy – Us horror channel Chiller have announced new original content for 2015 and 2016, including its first-ever original series, Slasher, and two new original movies, Lifeforce and Siren.

Says Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller:

Chiller delivers a broad range of compelling horror programming, from classic edge-of-your-seat thrillers to thought-provoking psychological dramas. Given Chiller’s success in the original film space with Animal and The Boy, we’re thrilled to premiere our first-ever original series, Slasher, later this year.

Chiller’s first original series, Slasher, follows the plight of a young woman who returns to the small town where she was born, only to find herself the centerpiece in a series of horrifying copycat murders – based on the widely-known, grisly killings of her parents. The eight-part season serves as the first instalment of an anthology series, »

Chiller's Upcoming Slate Includes a Re-Imagining of Lifeforce

5 May 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Chiller has announced its new original content for 2015 and 2016, including the channel's first-ever original series, Slasher, and two new original movies, once of which is a re-imaging of Tobe Hooper's oddball scifi/horror/apocalyptic 1985 film Lifeforce.

Lifeforce is, of course, based on the Colin Wilson books "The Space Vampires." It follows a group of astronauts who encounter a derelict alien spacecraft hiding an ancient secret. At the vessel, the explorers discover three perfect humanoids who are returned to Earth... and unleash a terrible plague upon the planet.

The original film stared Steve Railsback, Patrick Stewart and Mathilda May.

Cannes Unveils 2015 Official Selection Lineup

16 April 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Eight-Part Nature Documentary Our Planet Picked Up By Netflix

15 April 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Planet Earth first screened on the BBC back in 2006, audiences were transfixed. Offering unprecedented access to some of the world’s most elusive animals and wildlife, the documentary irrefutably raised the bar for the genre of nature documentaries and its lofty production values still set the precedent years later.

Almost a decade on, though, and it seems Netflix is hoping to emulate on its success with the eight-part natural history series Our Planet, which has been described by producers as the largest project of its kind ever attempted, projecting content from the four corners of the world in 4K resolution. Due to film over the course of four years, the online giant stated that it plans to have the series available to stream by 2019.

Silverback Films are involved in bringing Our Planet to existence, with Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey spearheading the nature documentary behind the cameras. Given that »

15 April 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Netflix has teamed up with WWF to produce a follow-up to the BBC's groundbreaking Planet Earth series.

Our Planet will be an eight-part documentary series that will premiere in 2019 in collaboration with Silverback Films.

The natural history series will come from the creators of the critically-acclaimed Planet Earth, which aired on BBC One in the UK and Discovery in the Us in 2006.

The four-year project will focus on never-before-filmed wilderness areas and its animal inhabitants, including ice caps, deep oceans, deserts and remote forests, and will use the latest in 4K camera technology.

It will be led by Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey, who created Planet Earth, Frozen Planet and Blue Planet for the BBC, as well as the Disneynature films Earth, Bears, African Cats and Chimpanzee.

"Netflix is proud to be the global home for perhaps Silverback's most ambitious project to date," said Lisa Nishimura, Vice President of Netflix Original Documentaries. »

‘Monkey Kingdom’ Director Talks About His Pretty Heroine

12 April 2015 2:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As with any Hollywood movie, director Mark Linfield sought a pretty heroine for his “Monkey Kingdom,” set in the scenic jungle in Sri Lanka. At Sunday’s premiere at the Grove in Los Angeles, Linfield talked about the three-year process that brought the DisneyNature movie to the bigscreen, as well as his monkey heroine.

“I’d been to this location 18 or 19 years ago and learned a lot about the monkeys,” Linfield said. “And for me the interesting story was always about the social hierarchy and the fact that if you’re born at the top with the silver spoon in your mouth, everything comes easily to you, you get the first pick. But if you are born at the bottom, like Maya (the protag), life is really, really hard. And what’s interesting is the low-ranking monkeys are the innovators. I knew all about that before the film started. So »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009.

Ian McKellen Will Return For X-men: Apocalypse; The Wolverine 2 = X-men 4?

9 February 2015 11:55 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In an interview with Oregon Live, Patrick Stewart revealed some very interesting details about the future of the X-Men franchise which might just get him into hot water with bosses at 20th Century Fox! He's Patrick Stewart though, so he really doesn't have to worry about that kind of thing. Anyway, after saying that he believes the chances of him being in X-Men: Apocalypse are "very unlikely", he confirmed that we will once again see the older version of Magneto.    "But Magneto, Ian McKellen, is certainly going to be in it," the actor told the site. How on Earth he will factor into this story is a mystery as of right now, but that's certainly an interesting development. However, even more intriguing is what Stewart revealed about plans for The Wolverine 2. "And what I'm very excited about is that we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team »

'RuPaul's Drag Race': 10 Queens Who Need to Guest-Judge

28 January 2015 1:14 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"RuPaul's Drag Race" is coming back March 2 with a judging panel consisting of veterans RuPaul and Michelle Visage and newcomers Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews. Exciting! Personally I will miss Santino Rice's snarly angst, but he's had a good run. More exciting: The announced guest judges this season are pretty thrilling. Kathy Griffin is back along with Olivia Newton-John, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, and John Waters. Pretty damn smashing. But before season seven gets under way, let's make sure to proclaim which celebrities Still need to join RuPaul and criticize the fabulous dames of his runway.  1. Tim Gunn Here's my problem with Tim Gunn on "Project Runway": I truly believe he is holding back. He comes from a distinguished academic background and taught at Parsons for years. He knows biting, incisive criticism. Not that he goes easy on "Project Runway" contestants, but he could certainly be grimmer and more subversive. »
