Check Out Judge Dredd’s Helmet!

15 December 2010 2:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

We are gradually getting a few snapshots from the new version of Judge Dredd, with Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings, Doom, The Bourne Supremacy, Red) as Dredd and Pete Travis (Vantage Point, Endgame) on direction duties. It’s not been too easy so far to see exactly what the look of the film is going to be, with these shots of Mega City One clearly awaiting a bit of CGI/matte-work augmentation and these shots of vehicles seeming a little unlike the finished article.

We have already been shown what Urban is going to look like in his Dredd get-up, although the image was a little fuzzy. Now we have something a good deal clearer from Edmund Woodward, who is working on the film, showing not only what Dredd’s helmet should look like, but also some of the preliminary sculpting work.

Have a good look at these snaps »

Faster review

28 November 2010 5:22 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Finally: Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, learns how to make a proper action movie again. Ron checks out Faster...

It's the moment fans of Dwayne Johnson have been waiting for since he burst onto the movie scene in The Mummy Returns. He followed that brief cameo up with a full-length Scorpion King movie, Doom, and a few other action flicks, but like a lot of movie stars, he wanted to branch out.

Trading on his good will and renown with kids, he eased into a lucrative career as a Disney movie star. However, he didn't abandon his action movie roots, and now The Rock is back and starring in Faster, which sells itself as a classic 70s-style revenge flick that wouldn't look out of place in the canon of Clint Eastwood or Charles Bronson.

Dwayne Johnson plays Driver. None of the characters in Faster have names, they're simply archetypes. Johnson's »

Box office preview: 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' to lead Thanksgiving weekend

24 November 2010 4:30 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This holiday weekend, a cornucopia of new releases will attempt to steal Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ thunder. Fat chance. In the box-office realm, Mr. Potter is the ultimate weapon — prepared to handle any adversary. His biggest challenger arrives in the animated form of Disney’s Tangled, but by the end of this weekend, Rapunzel could very well be sporting Emma Watson’s hairdo. As for the extremely revealing romantic comedy Love and Other Drugs, Dwayne Johnson’s R-rated action movie Faster, and the Cher and Christina Aguilera musical Burlesque — well, they should all be happy just to be sitting at the dining table. »

New this Week: ‘Tangled,’ ‘Faster’ and ‘The Expendables (DVD)’

24 November 2010 5:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

BurlesqueChristina Aguilera, Cher

FasterDwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton, Maggie Grace

Love and Other DrugsJake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway

TangledMandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Ron Perlman

Movie of the Week

Faster

The Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton, Maggie Grace

The Plot: An ex-con (Johnson) sets out to avenge his brother’s death.

The Buzz: Dwayne Johnson is back in straight-up action mode — after The Tooth Fairy and The Race to Witch Mountain — I was wondering if he’d ever return. Yes, Faster is certainly an action film, but it appears to be more than that; it appears to be a wildly rampaging, no-holds-barred, glorious tale of bullet-sweet vengeance. Well, that’s my gut-shot feeling anyway. Billy Bob Thornton is poised to play the perfect foil as the “slow justice” cop that stands in Johnson’s vengeful way. There are a couple solid female actresses here as well, »

The Reject Report Takes On Some Turkeys

23 November 2010 8:52 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

See, cause it’s Thanksgiving, and you generally eat turkey, and the new movies this week…You know what. Forget the wit. By the time many of you read this, you’ll already be so full of turkey and mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, you won’t have the time or the feeling in your lower half to even care about frivolities. So let’s just get into it, shall we? Big Hitters Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock (he’s never getting away from that moniker) has a new movie hitting this weekend. For a change of pace, it’s not Disney. It’s not funny. Nor does it have the former pro wrestler getting hit in the head by random, broad comedy objects. No, this time around, Johnson in the one doing the hitting, and judging by the trailer for Faster, he hits the bad guys with a whole lot more than his »

50 Upcoming Book-to-Movie Adaptations

23 November 2010 2:00 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Books: They’re just like movies, only without CGI. 

So it’s no wonder that over the past century, Hollywood has consistently turned to books to provide the basis for some of its best works. “To Kill a Mockingbird,” for instance, was based on a book, while “Gigli” wasn’t.  See how that works? 

With that in mind, then, we decided to put together a sneak peak of all the coolest books currently being turned into major motion pictures (like “The Help,” left). Because these days, the best library you can go to is your local Cineplex. 

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Attached: Georgie Henley, Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes, Liam Neeson

Status: The third book from the classic C. S. Lewis series to make it to the big screen, “Voyage of the Dawn Treader” has flown a bit under the radar thanks to the media »

Spotlight on Faster

22 November 2010 7:00 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Dwayne Johnson ushers in his tenth year of action with a starring role in the action-revenge flick Faster, where he fires big guns and drives fast cars as a man out to avenge his brother’s murder, with Billy Bob Thornton hot on his heels. As Driver – a man of few words who is steadfastly determined to punish the men who took his brother away – Johnson returns to the genre that made him famous (The Scorpion King, Walking Tall, Doom) and doesn’t skip a beat, putting his legendary muscle to good use as a no-nonsense ex-con with only one goal.

We were on the La set this past May and spoke with the charming actor about his what drew him to the film and what fans can expect from his latest on-screen adventure. Check out our behind-the-scenes videos and interview. »

Faster The Chronicles: Dwayne Johnson – Exclusive Interview that Covers Faster, Fast Five, The Other Guys, 3D, More

15 November 2010 11:53 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Dwayne Johnson’s Faster opening November 24, we’ve partnered with a bunch of other online sites for Faster The Chronicles.  The seven chapter series features exclusive interviews with the stars and filmmakers of Faster, and each one offers a clue to winning The Ultimate Guy’s Getaway trip for two to Las Vegas, which includes roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations (2 nights) and $1000 in Fast cash.  If you’d like to enter, head over to the official Faster Facebook page.

Since we’ve been covering Faster extensively over the past few months (click here to read our coverage), you know this is Johnson’s return to kicking ass and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve said many times that while I understand why Johnson made those family films, I’ve always thought he should be one of the biggest action stars on the planet.

Anyway, for the final chapter of Faster The Chronicles, »

Video Of The Day: Grindhouse-style Fan-made Trailer for “Faster”

15 November 2010 1:27 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Faster marks a change for actor Dwayne Johnson who stars in his first R-rated action movie (not including Doom in which Johnson isn’t really the protagonist.) This fan-made trailer from “TheMonocularGroup” mixes images from the film to music by Barry Upton (Ultra Vision),

The Sword (Acheron) and Rocket From the Crypt (Come See Come Saw), and opens with a montage of the greatest action stars such as Clint Eastood, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Charles Bronson, Chuck Norris and many more. Enjoy.

Grindhouse-style Fan-made Trailer for Faster

14 November 2010 8:55 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the biggest selling points for Faster is that it features Dwayne Johnson in an R-rated action movie, something audiences have been feeling denied all of his acting career.  The Rundown is close but it’s PG-13, and while Doom is a hard-r film, Johnson isn’t really the protagonist.  With Faster, it looks like Johnson is ready to tear it up.  A fan-made trailer from “TheMonocularGroup” happily exclaims that it’s time to “Witness The Rock claim his birthright as a total fucking badass.” (although he prefers not to be called “The Rock” anymore)  Let’s hope that will be the case.  While I haven’t seen the film, I think it’s safe to assume there won’t be any fairy wings or tooth-related puns.

Hit the jump to check out the fan-made trailer.  Faster also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Moon Bloodgood, and Maggie Grace. »

Take Three: Deborah Kara Unger

18 October 2010 5:28 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Craig with this week's Take Three

Today: Deborah Kara Unger

Take One: (Fear) X marks the...Game

‘A lone man searching for answers to a troubling mystery – assisted by a mysterious and wilfully tricksy woman – whilst on the run from a seemingly shadowy organisation’. This could well describe, in loose terms, the basic plot of two higher profile Unger films: The Game (1997) and, to a lesser extent, Fear X (2003). Both feature Unger as everyday femme fatales. She’s mysterious and ordinary at the same time: unheimlich with a handbag. Both characters – waitress Christine in the former, housewife Kate in the latter – are channelled via Unger’s almost otherworldly ability to remain glacially poised on demand.

Two-player game: Unger desperately tries to ignore Douglas in The Game

In The Game – straight after Crash playing another strange woman for another strange David (Fincher) – she accompanied Michael Douglas on his mad dash around »

Karl Urban on 'Red,' 'Dredd' and Picking Movie Roles

16 October 2010 3:20 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Celebrity Interviews, Cinematical

The type of movie you like will probably determine how you know Karl Urban. Big fan of the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy? He played Eomer. Like the 'Star Trek' reboot? He was "Bones" McCoy. Fond of culty syndicated TV shows like 'Hercules' and' Xena'? He was both Julius Caesar and Cupid (not at the same time). Or perhaps you've caught the New Zealand actor in 'The Bourne Supremacy,' indie film 'Out of the Blue' or even, if you care to admit to watching it, 'Doom.'

Urban returns to the big screen this weekend in 'Red,' a heist comedy so chock-full of big-name stars like Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich that Urban isn't even in the trailer, which is practically a crime. In this adaptation of a D.C. Comics graphic novel, »

Karl Urban Interview - Red and Dredd

13 October 2010 8:35 AM, PDT | movies.about.com | See recent About.com Hollywood Movies news »

Karl Urban's no stranger to action films having starred in Star Trek, Pathfinder, and Doom, and having played Eomor in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Return of the King, but he never had to take on action veteran Bruce Willis in any of his previous action outings. At the La premiere of Red, Urban confessed that he and Willis didn't hold back during their fight scene in the action/comedy. "Blood was drawn. No, I'm serious. We went for it," said Urban.

We also caught up with Jonathan Walker from the film who gave us the scoop on the prequel to The Thing, James Remar from Dexter, and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (who wouldn't confirm-or deny-Transformer 3's title) on Red's red carpet at Grauman's Chinese Theatre:

‘Faster’ Red Band Trailer – Dwayne Johnson Gets Brutal

7 October 2010 1:17 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Dwayne Johnson started his movie career with a bang by playing off his wrestling persona, “The Rock”. His first role came in 2001 when he played a bit part in The Mummy Returns and he kept his action hero status alive by playing that role again in The Scorpion King.

What followed was a messy assortment of films as Johnson tried to find his acting groove by trying a wide variety of character roles ranging from a sheriff in Walking Tall to a gay bodyguard in Be Cool. Even when he was in a movie that wasn’t warmly received by audiences – like Doom or The Rundown – he still played a bad ass that no one wanted to mess with.

His filmography took a sour turn with a rash of un-Rock like roles in The Game Plan, Race…

Adventures in First-Person Camera

22 September 2010 1:28 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

In Nick Schager's interview with madman/visionary Gaspar Noé, the director notes that one of his inspirations for the Pov shots in "Enter the Void" was a 1947 Raymond Chandler adaptation:

One day many years ago, maybe when I was in my late teens or early 20s, I took some mushrooms with friends, and then I went back home and they were playing "Lady in the Lake" on TV. That's when I decided that the first part of the movie should be shot in first-person perspective.

"Lady in the Lake" is a film that claimed to represent "a startling and daring new method of storytellng, a milestone in moviemaking" but is in actuality mainly a novelty (if a personal favorite of mine). The majority of it is shot from the point of view of the main character, private detective Philip Marlowe (played, when he appears on screen, by Robert Montgomery, who »

Exclusive: Clark Gregg Talks Iron Man 3, The Avengers and Thor!

15 September 2010 4:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Clark Gregg, who plays S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson discusses his character's expanding role in the Marvel film universe

Although actor Clark Gregg starred opposite Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus for five seasons on the CBS sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine, directed the critically acclaimed film Choke starring Sam Rockwell, wrote the hit film What Lies Beneath starring Harrison Ford and made over fifty film and television appearances, it wasn't until he appeared in the phenomenally successful Marvel movie Iron Man, as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson, that he became a household name to fan boys around the world. Gregg returned to the role, which is original to the films and was not based on a character from the comics, earlier this year in Iron Man 2 and fans that stayed until after the credits discovered Agent Coulson is going to have a big role in next summer's Thor as well. »

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Video Game Movies

7 September 2010 7:59 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

We all love video games. It only makes sense to take some of our favorite digital characters and/or stories, and put them on the big screen. With the release of Resident Evil: Afterlife in 3D, we here at Wamg are celebrating with our favorite movies based off of video games. They might not all be Oscar Winners, but they have certainly entertained us at one time or another… plus, who doesn’t like ass-kickin chicks! (Relax… This is a girl writing this! I can say chick!)

We are going to start this off a little differently. There are a ton of really bad video game based movies, so instead of an Honorable Mention, we are going to dive into our list with a…

Dishonorable Mention: Max Payne

Oh… Mark Wahlberg, as much as I like you, this movie was a big bust! This film had the potential to be awesome, »
