19 September 2017 10:57 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Alicia Vikander becomes the second actress to bring the iconic video game character Lara Croft to life on the big screen in the official trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot.

The new Tomb Raider movie is slated to come out on March 16th, 2018 from Warner Bros. Pictures. This will mark the third film adaptation of the Tomb Raider video game franchise, following 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life, both of which starred Angelina Jolie as the title character. The new movie will serve as an origin story for Lara Croft, who first graced screens in Eidos Interactive's 1996 video game Tomb Raider.

Horror and thriller fans may be interested to know that the new Tomb Raider movie is directed by Roar Uthaug, who helmed the 2006 slasher film Cold Prey and the 2015 environmental thriller The Wave. We have more details on the movie below, »

First Tomb Raider Reboot Footage Has Lara Croft Back in Action

18 September 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lara Croft is finally coming back to the big screen. And today we have our first real look at the Tomb Raider reboot. The official Tomb Raider Twitter dropped a sneak peek, promising the Tomb Raider trailer is coming tomorrow. We also have a brand new poster that shows Alicia Vikander as the famed video game treasure hunter as she sets out on her first mission.

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father's global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he's truly gone. »

Who is Better: Alec Baldwin in “The Departed” or in “Along Came Polly?”

8 September 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Alec Baldwin as a tough guy or Alec Baldwin as the goofy, overplayed boss. Who’s better? In The Departed he’s a tough as nails but somehow less than admirable police captain, while in Along Came Polly he’s the slightly off kilter boss that is so quirky he’s funny. It’s kind of hard to pick between the two since it’s really amusing to see him in both roles. But if I had to pick, my favorite, it would be Captain Ellerby from The Departed. It’s not an easy pick really since in both films he plays a sound role that sees

Another Devilish Piece Of Fan Art Paints Leonardo DiCaprio As The Joker

4 September 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Providing you haven’t been living under a rock since Friday, chances are you’ve caught wind of Warner Bros.’ tentative plans to cast Leonardo DiCaprio as The Joker. And it all centers around legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese.

The Oscar-winner and frequent DiCaprio collaborator has entered talks to produce a “super dark” origin movie involving the Clown Prince of Crime, and though early rumors pointed to a much younger rendition of the DC mega-villain, we’re now learning that Leonardo DiCaprio has landed at the tip-top of Warner’s wishlist.

And after working together across The Aviator, Gangs of New York, The Departed, Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street, news that DiCaprio and Scorsese could potentially reunite for a sixth time – in the breathless world of comic book movies, no less – has transformed The Joker from a fairly divisive idea to one of the most talked about DC projects in the industry. »

Will Leonardo DiCaprio Give the Green Light to Joker Movie?

1 September 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. would love to see Leonardo DiCaprio as the Joker in the studio’s planned origin tale, according to sources. But it’s way too early to predict whether the versatile star might be interested, and no offer has been made.

The studio’s Joker standalone film, to be directed by Todd Phillips, is expected to have Martin Scorsese on board as an executive producer.

It makes sense that a Scorsese-led Joker would look to involve DiCaprio — they’ve teamed on “Gangs of New York,” “The Aviator,” best picture winner “The Departed,” “Shutter Island,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

But the Joker project could be a real longshot since DiCaprio, who hasn’t made a movie since he won best actor for “The Revenant,” has been attached to numerous projects that never got made, some with Scorsese. The duo are currently in development on “Devil in the White City” and “Killers of the Flower Moon »

Warner Bros. Eyeing Leonardo DiCaprio for Joker

1 September 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Now that Warner Bros. and DC have a Joker origin film in the works with Martin Scorsese as producer, it looks like they are eyeing one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio. Sounds awesome right? Well that’s the plan at least.

Reports say that there is no offer on the table yet for DiCaprio to play Batman’s most famous nemesis but that WB will use Scorsese as bate to reel in the Oscar-winning actor. Funny enough is that THR‘s sources say that the deal for Scorsese to produce the film “isn’t even done yet.”

If all happens to workout, remember this is Hollywood so it’s a big If, this will mark the sixth time the dynamic duo of DiCaprio and Scorsese have come together. The two have worked together on films such as Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island »

Warner Bros. Reportedly Sets Sights On Leonardo DiCaprio For The Joker

1 September 2017 6:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. is reportedly swinging for the fences when it comes to The Joker.

Not only has the studio entered negotiations with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese about the possibility of producing the “super dark” origin movie, one which Todd Phillips (The Hangover) would direct, but we’re now learning that the studio’s brass has targeted none other than Leonardo DiCaprio for the gig.

Details are scarce, and it’s unclear how WB plans to incorporate DiCaprio into the mix if The Joker is to be an origin story involving the Clown Prince of Crime, but sources close to the nascent project now suggest Warner Bros. wants DiCaprio or another big-name star to play the Joker as “a gritty crime boss in a Scorsese-esque Gotham underworld.” Where do we sign up?

It’s worth keeping in mind that, should a deal place, this would be the Oscar-winner’s first true »

Why ‘Death Note’ Is Guilty of Whitewashing, and What We Can Do to Prevent More Movies Like It

31 August 2017 6:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

So Netflix’s “Death Note” is finally available to stream around the world, and everyone is completely thrilled about it with no reservations whatsoever, the end.

Just kidding. While the release of Adam Wingard’s controversial manga adaptation has been overshadowed by everything from Hurricane Harvey to “Game of Thrones” and even a different story of Hollywood white-washing (albeit one with a happy ending, thanks to actor Ed Skrein agreeing to remove himself from the “Hellboy” remake), the movie has been kicking up a fuss ever since it was first announced that none of its major characters would be played by actors of Asian descent. The case may not be quite as cut-and-dry as it was with this year’s ill-conceived “Ghost in the Shell” remake, but the discussion around it may be even more valuable for that.

Below, IndieWire critics David Ehrlich and Hanh Nguyen dig into the issue. »

Five Of The Best Hollywood Remakes

30 August 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If there’s one thing that Hollywood likes to do is to remake a classic, particularly if it only exists in a foreign language. But of course, that’s not always the case. Sometimes, executives will get their hands on a film that is many years old, or one that didn’t quite maximise its potential the first time around. Here, we look at a bunch of best Hollywood remakes – those that really knocked it out of the park.

The Departed

Martin Scorsese’s 2006 ensemble crime movie The Departed was a remake of the 2002 Hong Kong movie series Infernal Affairs, which in its own entity was darned good.

The big Hollywood remake saw the action relocated to Boston basing the two main characters on gangster Whitey Bulger and corrupt FBI agent John Connolly. Jack Nicholson plays Irish Mob boss Francis “Frank” Costello (Jack Nicholson), based on the former, who sends »

Warner Bros Developing ‘Joker’ Origin Movie

22 August 2017 11:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Warner Bros. have not had a huge amount of luck with the Joker since Heath Ledger’s Academy Award winning performance in The Dark Knight. The character has made various animated appearances, as well two incredibly divisive live action appearances in both Gotham, and in last years Suicide Squad. But, none have managed to resonate in the same way as Ledger’s.

Jared Leto’s most recent iteration of the clown prince of crime, in the aforementioned super villain team up, proved to be much more controversial than Warner’s hoped last year. As a result, there has always been a lingering question mark over whether or not Leto will reprise his role.

Now, it has been revealed that the studio in the process of developing a brand new film, that will focus on the origin of the character. The film will reportedly stand on its own, and not have »

‘Death Note’: Adam Wingard Defends Anime Adaptation Against Whitewashing Claims: ‘It Is a Whole New Thing’

19 August 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Like a lot of movies made in the last year, “Death Note” has faced criticism for whitewashing its source material. The upcoming Netflix drama is based on a Japanese manga and, not unlike “Ghost in the Shell,” has changed Japanese characters into American ones: Nat Wolff plays Light Turner (the updated version of Light Yagami), while Margaret Qualley is Mia Sutton (Misa Amane).

Director Adam Wingard addressed those claims to Vulture, saying that his take on “Death Note” isn’t “just taking a character and trying to say a white kid is a Japanese kid. It is a whole new thing. The characters are all very different and it is a different kind of experience all together.”

Exclusive Interview: Actress Ashlee Macropoulos on This Just In and Glass Jaw

15 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In an exclusive interview, Flickering Myth sat down with Los Angeles-based actress Ashlee Marcopoulos to talk about acting and her hit Emmy-nominated TV show This Just In.

FM: Have you always wanted to be an actress? How did acting come about for you?

Acting has always been something that’s inside of me. Like many artists, I have always had a need to express something that could only be done through honing my craft. Which is ultimately shinning a light on the deepest parts of myself and seeing what’s really there.

FM: What and who inspired you to become an actress?

My mom really is the reason I have been able to keep up with acting. If it wasn’t for her taking me to classes as a little girl and driving me all over the place to follow my heart, I would have never realized how important acting was to me. »

Martin Scorsese’s Top 7 movies

6 August 2017 10:36 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Picture Source:  Amazon.com

There are few filmmakers out there that can boast a filmography that stacks up to Martin Scorsese’s. Argued to be the best director of the Hollywood New Wave generation – not a small feat, considering he’s up against heavyweights like Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola and Oliver Stone, Scorsese started his career in 1967 with his debut Who’s That Knocking On My Door, and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon at his 74 years of age.

With big news coming out regarding his long gestating return to gangster epics The Irishman, we thought we’d take a look at some of the highlights of Scorsese’s wide spanning and eclectic career.

Gangs of New York

In many ways Gangs of New York belongs to Scorsese’s modern American gangster genre, albeit it as a prequel to the actual gangster world. Telling the violent »
