Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming Wonder Woman.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster,” AMC’s “The Killing”).

Study Ranks American Actors’ British Accents, and Vice Versa

27 February 2017 4:29 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone who’s seen “Mary Poppins” knows what a bad Cockney accent sounds like. But for the first time, British actors have ranked Dick Van Dyke’s “mockney” as the worst attempt at a U.K. accent in a pool of the highest grossing films’ leads.

Language-learning app Babbel commissioned ex-pat professional actors from both the U.K. and U.S. to vote on a five-point scale on how convincing the accents were for leading parts in blockbusters grossing over $100 million.

For the United States accent, American Actors UK awarded British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor a 4.5/5 for his work as Solomon Northup in “12 Years a Slave.” Tied for second are the DC superheros; Christian Bale as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman both garnered 4.2/5 scores.

Best in show for the Americans attempting the over-the-pond accents, awarded by British Actors in La, are Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow and Renée Zellweger. Streep’s »

‘A Cure for Wellness’ Exclusive Soundtrack: Listen to a Track From Benjamin Wallfisch’s Dark, Ominous Score

8 February 2017 2:51 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Gore Verbinski’s new psychological thriller “A Cure for Wellness” follows a young exec (Dane DeHaan) sent to retrieve his company’s CEO (Jason Isaacs) from a mysterious wellness center only to discover that the spa’s treatments are not what they seem. The film has received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics ahead of its release date, with IndieWire’s own David Ehrlich giving it a B+ and said that it’s a “thrilling reminder of what can happen in the increasingly rare instance when a visionary filmmaker is given serious cash without constraints.”

Mindy Newell: Utopia, Dystopia, Death…and Riverdale

30 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Sir John Hurt died a few days ago. One of Great Britain’s finest actors, his rise started with his turn as Robert Rich, a courtier and lawyer in Henry VIII’s court, in Fred Zimmerman’s A Man for All Seasons. The movie, based upon Robert Bolt’s play about the fall of, British Lord Chancellor Thomas More, could be considered a science fiction story as it deals with a perfectly harmonious island society that was nowhere to be found in More’s 16th century – or in the 21st, for that matter.

Sir John, in his long and brilliant career, was no stranger to our brand of cultural pop geekdom. Besides his outstanding turn as the War Doctor on the 50th anniversary special Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor – he recreated the War Doctor on four sets of audio plays for Big Finish; three are already out, »

John Hurt: Remembering the Master of Outsiders

30 January 2017 5:35 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For a man whose first claim to screen immortality came when an extraterrestrial freak of nature ripped a hole in his chest and screeched bloody murder in Alien, John Hurt was a hell of an actor. "The alien won the Oscar," a laughing Hurt told me nearly three decades later, referring to the Academy Award that Ridley Scott's 1979 film took home for H.R. Giger's visual effects. It might be the only time in his 55-year career that anyone, let alone a creature that looked like a penis with teeth, »

John Hurt: 1940-2017

Den Of Geek Jan 28, 2017

We've lost the brilliant Sir John Hurt, at the age of 77.

Some very sad news this morning. The wonderful Sir John Hurt has died, at the age of 77. Hurt had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two years ago, eventually being given the all clear. But his agent announced today that we’d lost him.

Sir John Hurt always felt like one of us. For geeks of various ages, he was Joseph Merrick in The Elephant Man, he was Winston Smith in Michael Radford’s film of 1984. He was, of course, Kane in Alien, the heart of a genuinely iconic scene of cinema. And, more recently, he was, of course, The War Doctor in Doctor Who. Remember that cliffhanger? We certainly do.

He also brought his gravitas to projects such as V For Vendetta, Hellboy, and Snowpiercer. Heck, the list of what he’s given the world is not a short one. »

R.I.P. John Hurt (1940 – 2017)

28 January 2017 12:01 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

British actor and icon John Hurt sadly passed away yesterday. The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter and while they do not list an exact cause of death, Hurt had been battling pancreatic cancer since June 2015. He was 77.

Hurt has had a prolific career in film, both in the U.K. and Hollywood. Throughout his career Hurt was nominated for two Academy Awards – one as Best Supporting Actor for Midnight Express (for which he won a Golden Globe) and again as Best Actor for The Elephant Man. He is also an actor who – much like Sean Bean – is known for being killed off in many of his movies.

His most famous onscreen death is perhaps the chest-bursting sequence in Ridley Scott’s seminal Alien with Sigourney Weaver. One popular fact about that scene is that none of the other actors knew it was coming and truly thought Hurt was choking »
