The people who brought you The Matrix, V for Vendetta, and most recently Cloud Atlas are back at it again with an all new hard sci-fi film, Jupiter Ascending. Today sees the release of the first full trailer and its as dazzling as you'd expect from the directing duo, and it gets all my nerdy juices flowing! Come inside to check it out.
While Cloud Atlas (the Wachowski's last film) didn't exactly fire up the box office, it's a movie I thoroughly enjoyed. It brought together an incredible cast and weaved a story through time that really spoke to you. While hardly anyone else saw the damn thing, it proved to me once again that Lana and Andy Wachowski are filmmakers to admire and keep an eye on. That being said, I've been very eager to see what they would do with Jupiter Ascending. Since the film was announced we »

Last week I spent an evening in the company of the exceptionally talented Oscar winning composer, Dario Marianelli. An evening full of film clips, humble beginnings and very funny anecdotes, it marked the last in BAFTA’s season of ‘Conversations with Screen Composers’ at the Royal Albert Hall.
Dario very kindly answered some questions for The Hollywood News before the event, including the origins of his celebrated relationship with director Joe Wright, wanting to be like Clint Mansell when he grows up and if he’d ever score a superhero film…
Thn: How did your initial collaboration with Joe Wright come about, and what is it specifically about the director that inspires your continued working relationship?

Amazon's week long deals for 2013 Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue today, Wednesday, November 27, with a new schedule of DVDs and Blu-rays going on sale today and they are starting early. The deals throughout the day begin just after midnight today and there are a few titles worthy of your attention. If I had to select one title from the batch of deals going live today it would certainly be the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray collection, beyond that the Schindler's List Blu-ray is worth considering and, if you're looking for a nice little quadruple feature you can't really go wrong with picking up the Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Elizabeth bundle, the price isn't yet available, but I have to assume it won't break the bank. Finally, that Best of Warner Bros. Romance Collection at 12:20 Pm might be worth a look as it includes some greats such »

Paul Risker on Katniss Everdeen and the dystopian sci-fi role model....
Woman, says Caroline Williams, has been a “prize, there to be defeated, destroyed or possessed.” Regardless a number of female protagonists have provided a strong representation of femininity, from the inaugural “Final Girl” Jamie Lee Curtis, Alien’s Ellen Ripley, The Silence of the Lambs' Clarice Starling, Terminator’s Sarah Connor to Pollyanna
McIntosh’s The Woman.
From the perspective of the narrative’s antagonists all of these women were a “prize, there to be defeated, destroyed or possessed.” In spite of this each has symbolised feminine strength, and served as cinematic role models; celebrated and reviled in equal measure. The same is true of cinema’s latest feminine role model - The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen, who proceeds to contribute to this heritage of feminine strength - celebrated by the films young audience, male and female, and »

There's little doubt that Alan Moore is one of only a handful of comic book writers who could legitimately be described as the greatest of all time, but in a new interview with The Guardian (via Comic Book Movie), the creator of classic titles such as Watchmen, Batman: The Killing Joke, V for Vendetta, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and From Hell has offered up some choice words for "emotionally subnormal" fans of the superhero genre.
"I haven't read any superhero comics since I finished with Watchmen. I hate superheroes. I think they're abominations. They don't mean what they used to mean. They were originally in the hands of writers who would actively expand the imagination of their nine-to-13-year-old audience. That was completely what they were meant to do and they were doing it excellently. These days, superhero comics think the audience is certainly not nine to 13, it's nothing to do with them. »

Alan Moore, legendary comic-book writer and co-creator of “Watchmen” — still considered the greatest comic book of all time — currently has a problem with men in tights. More specifically, men of a certain age taking an interest in them. Speaking with the Guardian about his latest graphic novel – “Fashion Beast,” which started out as a film but wound up in his hands for comic treatment – the 60-year-old Brit, who also penned “V for Vendetta” and “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,” said superheroes are “abominations” … and that grownups who still obsess over them have to justify their obsession »

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Alan Moore - who clearly has an extremely high opinion of his own work judging from that piece - has shared his thoughts on anyone over the age of 13 who happens to enjoy reading superhero comic books or the movies that they're based on. He's clearly forgetting that he's talking about the same people who have made the likes of Watchmen, The League of Extraordinary Gentleman and V For Vendetta the best-selling successes they are, and you can read his thoughts on "emotionally subnormal" fans below. "I haven't read any superhero comics since I finished with Watchmen. I hate superheroes. I think they're abominations. They don't mean what they used to mean. They were originally in the hands of writers who would actively expand the imagination of their nine- to 13-year-old audience. That was completely what they were meant to do and they »
I think we all know how Alan Moore feels about the adaptations of his own works. The writer and creator of V For Vendetta, Watchmen, and The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen has said in the past that most of his stories were designed to be unfilmable. When the adaptations were made, Moore wanted to distance himself from them and even asked that his name be taken off any credits. If you've read anything Moore has written, when superheroes are present, so to speak, they are unconventional. »

It’s the week after Halloween when people put aside their spooky comics, costumes and cheap leftover sweets, and pick up their copies of V for Vendetta for that special time of year in Britain where we celebrate the foiled plot to blow up Parliament by setting off fireworks and burning an effigy of one of the plotters.
In comics news this week, Jim Starlin revealed he was working on a new full length story for Marvel – great news for fans of The Infinity Gauntlet author’s work. Will we see a new Thanos story from his creator in 2014? Here’s hoping! Marvel also announced the new Ms Marvel would be an American/Muslim young woman called Kamala Khan from Jersey City.

While you’re chanting “remember, remember, the fifth of November,” here’s a few things to know about the history of November 5, and of Guy Fawkes.
Guy Fawkes rose to fame after planning the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, and failing. On Nov. 5, we remember the fifth with fireworks and parties, and some of us even watch V for Vendetta, the film based on Guy’s actions.

With director Alan Taylor's Thor: The Dark World opening around the world next week and in North America on November 8th, I was able to interview the cast and filmmakers in London this past weekend. As most of you know, Chris Hemsworth returns as Thor, who reluctantly teams up with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) to fight off the villainous dark elf Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston). The film also stars Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins. During my interview with Natalie Portman, she talked about how the sequel is very funny, when she learned her character would have so much to do and also be involved in the action, deleted scenes, what she collects, and if she's been asked to appear in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hit the jump to watch. And if you »
