The Walking Dead: Lauren Cohan interview on Maggie Greene

26 September 2016 3:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Duncan Bowles Sep 27, 2016

As The Walking Dead season 6 comes out on Blu-ray and DVD, we chatted to Lauren Cohan about Maggie, survival and losing people...

Warning: contains spoilers for The Walking Dead season 6.

Through some choice genre roles in the likes of Supernatural, Chuck, The Vampire Diaries and Archer, Lauren Cohan has cemented herself as a geek icon, but it’s her long-standing role as Maggie Greene on The Walking Dead that’s allowed her to really shine. Maggie’s journey has seen her suffer extreme loss, with her once rather large family cut down to err… zero, but she’s also been the only character to sustain a long term relationship with Mr Glenn Rhee and out of that love, there’s now the possibility of the show's second baby on the way.

Of course like most of the core characters, both Glenn and Maggie are in the line of bat, »

Barry L. Levy Developing Movie on Boston Strangler (Exclusive)

26 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Barry L. Levy will direct “Stranglehold,” a movie about the Boston Strangler Task Force with Todd Garner and Sean Robins producing through their Broken Road company.

The Solution Entertainment Group will finance the project and produce “Stranglehold.” Myles Nestel is producing with Lisa Wilson, and Stephen Emery is executive producing.

Levy is set to make his directorial debut and will helm from his own script. His screenwriting credits include “Vantage Point” and “Paranoia.”

“Stranglehold” tells the untold true story of the Boston Strangler Task Force, which was assembled as a special unit by the Massachusetts Attorney General to stop the serial killer after more than a dozen unsolved murders in the early 1960s. What no one could have predicted was that this group, led by a disgraced Boston Police Detective and a Hollywood psychic, would unearth an even more heinous crime.

Producers are planning to begin casting immediately.

Running Time: 1 hr 39 mins

Rating: R

Due Out: June 14, 2016

Plot: (courtesy Universal Pictures Home Entertainment) Devastation of a world capital and a revenge plan against an American president fuel the high-octane London Has Fallen, coming to Digital HD on May 31, 2016, and Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on June 14, 2016 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen raises the stakes with non-stop action and suspenseful plot twists.

With every powerful world leader set to attend, the funeral should be the most protected event on Earth. Yet within moments of arriving, heads of government are assassinated and London landmarks are attacked. Asher, Banning, and Jacobs are ambushed and retreat amidst a hail of gunfire and explosives. The devastated British capital goes into lockdown. Banning will stop at nothing to secure Asher’s safe return home. Back at the White House, Vice President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) races against time brainstorming with top advisors in the Situation Room to get those trapped in London a lifeline of support and a way out.

London Has Fallen Blu-Ray Preview Blows Up Chelsea Bridge | Exclusive

14 June 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This preview, courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, features second unit director Steve Griffin, who teases that, since they couldn't actually blow up the real Chelsea Bridge in London, this massive attack scene was filmed by using a huge green screen set at an airfield in Bulgaria during principal photography. We also hear from senior visual effects supervisor Sean Farrow, who reveals that some of the most fascinating conversations during the production involved around deciding which bridges to blow up. He also explains that the production chose Chelsea Bridge because it was a suspension bridge that could be pulled apart piece by piece.

'Rams' Composer Atli Örvarsson Wins Best Film Score at the 2016 Harpa Awards

18 February 2016 5:23 PM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Icelandic cinema scored one more victory at the 2016 Harpa Awards, which took place at the Nordic Embassies during Berlinale on February 15, 2016.  Composer Atli Örvarsson won the award for Best Film Score for the Icelandic film "Rams," while Johann Johannson took home the Honorary Award.

“The award for Best Film Score goes to a man with a unique sound,” said the jury who consisted of Thomas Robsahm, Konrad Sommermeyer and Christineauf der Haar.  “The accordion perfectly matches the loneliness, the nature and the sound of the sheep calling out for each other - the bleating. The music, the atmosphere and the pictures fit perfectly together. It feels as if the director and the composer really are in close contact – and telling their story together.”

Grímur Hákonarson's "Rams" took home the Un Certain Regard Award at last year's Cannes Film Festival and has since screened at numerous festivals around the world charming critics and audiences alike. Cohen Media Group released the film stateside earlier this month.

Atli has worked with Hans Zimmer in Los Angeles for a number of years. Since moving back to his original hometown Akureyri in northern Iceland, he has scored a number of Hollywood films and TV series as well as Icelandic films. 
The film "Rams" was coincidentally shot in the remote countryside village where his mother grew up and is based on a true story about two elderly brothers living on the same farm and leading a very rural countryside life - but have not spoken to each other for many decades. 
Atli is the son of Iceland´s most distinguished accordionist Örvar Kristánsson who passed away last year. Atli created the score to a large degree using his father’s old accordion which is heavily featured in the score.

Atli’s credits include orchestrating and writing music for some of Hollywood’s biggest projects, including the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series.  He has contributed music to films from "Angels and Demons" to "The Holiday. As a composer, Atli Örvarsson displays musical diversity throughout his action-film scores in "The Eagle," "Vantage Point," "Babylon A.D.," the Morgan Freeman caper "Thick as Thieves," "The Fourth Kind," and the Nicolas Cage medieval fantasy "Season of the Witch."  Atli’s most recent credits include "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," the dark and edgy film "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," the drama/thriller "A Single Shot" starring Sam Rockwell, the hit NBC series "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago Pd," and working with Hans Zimmer to contribute music to the Zack Snyder's Superman reinstallment "Man of Steel."

The Harpa Awards were invented in 2009. The aim was to put a spotlight on Nordic talent, skills and know-how and to promote the great Nordic film talents in music and acting for the international film industry and thereby strengthening the opportunities for cooperation between the Nordic countries and the international film market.  More information you can visit  http://www.nordicfilmmusicdays.com/

Take a look at Örvarsson on the accordion in the video below.

2000 Ad Calling On Fans For Dredd TV Series On Netflix

14 January 2016 10:51 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The fan movement for more live-action Dredd is being reborn as "Bring Back Dredd".  The 2012 live-action Dredd film from director Pete Travis (Vantage Point) and written by Alex Garland (Ex Machina) was praised by critics and fans alike but earned $45 M Usd at the global box office from a budget of $41 M Usd.  This time, the call is going out for fans to grab the attention of streaming platforms like Hulu, Amazon or Netflix (along with HBO) in hopes that a sequel to the film can come in the form of a TV series.  The petition is already at 136,000 signatures.  Click the link to add your name to the list.   Instead calling on fans to sign a petition, would 2000 Ad be better off going the kickstarter route and asking for donations? A character as popular as Judge Dredd should be able to drum up a couple million dollars »
