21 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hammer Horror has been back for a few years now and their first major success since their revival was 2012’s The Woman in Black. Now the studio has released the first teaser trailer for the sequel The Woman in Black: Angel of Death. The teaser gives un nothing to go off on in its short runtime. Besides some threatening text and a little jump scare, there are no hints toward story and characters. The film is directed by British TV director Tom Harper and stars Helen McCrory (The Queen, The Special Relationship), Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Railway Man), and Adrian Rawlins (the Harry Potter series) and will be released this February.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Following some rough set videos over the weekend, Page Six has released some good quality photos of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne filming scenes for Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Click here to access the full gallery.

Ant-Man

"Ant-Man" director Peyton Reed confirms that one element of the comics making the transition in the upcoming Marvel film is Scott Lang's progeny: "In the comics, Scott Lang has a daughter, and that’s part of the movie too, in terms of the character dynamics that are going on. That really appealed to me."

In the comics, Lang becomes Ant-Man in order to save the life of his daughter Cassie. Years later, she became the super hero 'Stature' in the "Young Avengers" series. [Source: Screen Rant]

Om Puri’s Long ‘Journey’

8 August 2014 6:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Fat noses have no place in the Hindi film industry,” Om Puri is fond of saying. “But it is not so in the West — otherwise Anthony Quinn would have never been an actor.” Puri certainly nose — make that knows — of what he speaks. When he was starting out as a film actor in the 1970s, his own mighty, bulbous proboscis seemed as sure an impediment to stardom as the pockmarked face that surrounded it, the vestige of a childhood bout of smallpox that nearly killed him (as it did six of his seven siblings). Yet that very face — weathered and wise, a face of experience — has gone on to become one of the most recognizable in Indian cinema and a familiar presence on movie screens around the world, too.

Now it is front and center in the new Disney/DreamWorks movie “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” in which Puri stars as Papa, »

Helen Mirren Wants to Star in a 'Fast & Furious' Movie

7 August 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Get Vin Diesel on the phone, stat: Helen Mirren wants to star in a "Fast & Furious" film.

The Oscar winning actress -- and expert twerker -- revealed her secret wish to appear in an installment of the action franchise in a recent interview with The Huffington Post. Mirren said that it was the very film that won her the Academy Award for Best Actress, 2006's "The Queen," that inspired her to want to join the thrill-seeking franchise.

As Mirren tells it, she loved driving the Land Rover that Queen Elizabeth II drives in the film, but said that it was almost like stunt driving because she couldn't see over the two large cameras strapped to the vehicle. Despite the nerve-wracking circumstances, Mirren said the experience was "really fun."

She continued:

I always love stunt driving. I do as much driving on my movies as I can. If there's driving stuff to be done, »

Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren will make her return to Broadway this spring as Queen Elizabeth II in Peter Morgan’s The Audience, directed by Stephen Daldry.

While The Queen addressed the 1997 aftermath of the death of Princess Diana, The Audience stretches back from the 1950s through today, imagining »

Alice In Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass Kicks Off Production

4 August 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, the sequel to Disney’s massively successful, if narratively weak, Alice in Wonderland is starting to roll cameras, with James Bobin replacing Tim Burton in the director’s chair. It took a suprisingly long time for this next chapter of the planned franchise to get off the ground, considering the first film broke $1 billion at the box office, but a press release indicates that filming is now underway.

Officially titled Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up finds the original actors returning to their roles, with a bevy of new stars joining both the live-action and voice casts. What the sequel is exactly about is still foggy, but the story is said to “revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time.”

Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass Officially Starts Production

4 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney met with some success in their live-action version of Alice in Wonderland (with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter), and since the film released, talk of a sequel has been on-going.  Now, it's finally moved into production as the cast and crew have gathered together in anticipation of it's May 2016 release.  Disney announced cameras have started rolling with a new cast list confirming both old and new members of the cast coming to the production.  

I wasn't all that thrilled with Alice in Wonderland when it released.  Not that it was a bad movie, I just didn't find it all that special or great.  So it's tough to muster up much enthusiasm for this sequel, despite the impressive cast coming back for it.  From the press release:

Daldry talks 'Trash' in Motovun

28 July 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stephen Daldry also talks about his new Netflix-backed series, his first foray into episodic TV.

Stephen Daldry admits his new film Trash is likely to ruffle feathers because of “talking about poverty and corruption in Brazil.”

Daldry, speaking at the Motovun Film Festival in Croatia this weekend, said: “The reason I made this film is because it’s about the underbelly, the difficult side of Rio, the underexposed side of Rio.”

Trash, which is slate for its world premiere at the Rio Film Festival in October, is now in the final stages of post production for Peapie Films, Working Title and Universal. It follows the story of impoverished kids who scavenge on a trash heap in Rio who get embroiled in a political scandal when they find an important item in the trash.

Daldrey spent three years on and off in Rio. “It’s a country I feel in love with, they believe »

Even to Oprah Winfrey, Helen Mirren is kind of a big deal. The mogul refers to the Oscar winner as "The Helen" and couldn't think of anyone better-suited to play the starring role in The Hundred-Foot Journey, which hits theaters Aug. 8 and features Mirren as the haughty head of an upscale French restaurant suddenly facing competition from an Indian eatery opening across the street. "It was [fellow producer] Steven [Spielberg] ... who said, 'I think we should ask Helen.'  I said, 'The Helen?'

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »
