24 June 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Contributed by Melissa Thompson and Gary Salem

Wamg was among members of the media and invited guests to witness the Grand Opening of Fast and Furious Supercharged, the latest movie-themed attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. The presentation treated everyone to an extensive display of cars from the movies, a dance performance, speeches by top Universal execs and L.A.’s mayor, all topped off by an exciting assortment of live car stunts including a 90-foot jump through a billboard that caught us by surprise.

After the presentation concluded, we were lucky enough to go on a test-ride of the adrenalin-pumping, high-speed adventure with Dom, Hobbs and the rest of the Fast and Furious gang. Coming at the end of the famous Back-lot Tram Tour, Supercharged literally puts you smack dab in the middle of a high-flying, breakneck speed chase. The technology is pretty cool, in that with the giant 360-degree screen and 3D glasses, »

Read More: Tiff Buy: Bleecker Street Acquires Ed Zwick's 'Pawn Sacrifice' with Tobey Maguire and Liev Schrieber  Written by Steven Knight ("Locke," "Eastern Promises") and directed by Ed Zwick ("Defiance," "Blood Diamond"), "Pawn Sacrifice" tells the story of real-life American chess champion Bobby Fischer: the youngest person to ever achieve the Grandmaster status and, at the height of his fame, a U.S. political symbol, as a result of his widely publicized match against Russian champion Boris Spassky.

Thanos VFX breakdown for Guardians of the Galaxy

24 May 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ll soon be seeing a lot more of Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the Mad Titan takes centre stage for Avengers: Infinity War, but in the meantime we’ve had to make do with his post-credits scenes in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well as a brief appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy.

While we await his next appearance (Thor: Ragnarok?), the folks at Luma Pictures have posted a featurette which delves into the VFX work that went into bringing Thanos to life for Guardians of the Galaxy, and you can check it out here (via ComicBook)…

Loic Zimmermann our concept designer took the most prevalent features of Josh Brolin that we thought would stand out the most and put them into who the character is underneath,” Luma Pictures VFX supervisor Vincent Cirelli tells FX Guide. “He began blending those elements.

Jack Reacher 2 lands new director

19 May 2015 10:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Cruise is set to return to play Jack Reacher again - and he's reuniting with his The Last Samurai director...

Jack Reacher may not have been the biggest hit of Tom Cruise's career, but it grossed a cool $218m at the box office off a $60m budget. That got it over the sequel line, should all concerned want to make one.

And now they do.

Tom Cruise is set to return as Reacher in a new adventure that's going to be based on the most recent of author Lee Child's novels, Never Go Back. This time though, Christopher McQuarrie - who's currently putting the finishing touches to this summer's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation - won't be directing. Instead, we now learn that the job has gone to Ed Zwick.

Zwick has directed Tom Cruise before, in The Last Samurai. And his impressive CV also includes the likes of Courage Under Fire, »

Last Samurai's Edward Zwick is bringing Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher back to the big screen

19 May 2015 4:53 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Cruise's crime-fighter Jack Reacher is returning to the big screen with director Edward Zwick at the helm.

This will be a reunion for Zwick and Cruise, who previously collaborated on the Academy Award-nominated war film The Last Samurai in 2003.

Zwick is now in final talks to take over for Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie on the sequel Never Go Back, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

His deal with Paramount could also include the hiring of Last Samurai co-writer Marshall Herskovitz to work with him on Never Go Back as well.

Zwick's other high-profile credits include Glory, Legends of the Fall, Blood Diamond and Love & Other Drugs.

Cruise has been confirmed to reprise his role as Jack Reacher for the sequel, while it's unclear if his co-stars Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo will be back. »

Tom Cruise To Re-Team With Edward Zwick For ‘Jack Reacher 2′

19 May 2015 3:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tom Cruise is set to re-team with his ‘Last Samurai’ director Edward Zwick for the follow-up to his extremely successful Jack Reacher adaptation, which was released in 2012. Zwick, along with Marshall Herskovitz, will rewrite the screenplay by Richard Wenk.

The new film will be based on the novel ‘Never Go Back’ by Lee Child, which sees Reacher head back to his old military base in Virginia to take a woman to dinner who is now the commanding officer. By the time he gets there, she has been arrested, and Reacher finds himself being charged with pummeling one guy and fathering a child with a woman. He can’t remember either transgression but gets to the bottom of it with cunning and sometimes brute force.

Christopher McQuarrie directed the first movie, which grossed over $210 million worldwide and he will return to executive produce.

Zwick has a host of critically acclaimed credits to his name, »

The Last Samurai director Ed Zwick reteams with Tom Cruise for Jack Reacher sequel

19 May 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Though prospects of a sequel to Jack Reacher looked dim, it’s now being reported that Paramount is indeed looking to get Tom Cruise behind the wheel of Reacher’s Chevelle once more, and are looking at The Last Samurai and Blood Diamond director Ed Zwick to make it happen.

According to Deadline, Zwick is currently in negotiations with the studio and Skydance to take the reins of the fledgling franchise. The 2012 film was directed by Christopher McQuarrie, and though everyone wanted him back for the sequel, he’s been busy dangling Cruise off of an airplane for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

As previously rumored, the sequel will be based on the Lee Child Jack Reacher novel Never Go Back, which was published in 2013. In it, Reacher heads back to Virginia for a date with a woman who’s now the commanding officer of his old military base. But by the time he gets there, »

Jack Reacher Sequel Eyeing Ed Zwick

19 May 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tom Cruise may be reteaming with The Last Samurai team of Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz for a Jack Reacher sequel, now that Paramount and Skydance have entered into negotiations with the pair to rewrite a script by Richard Wenk (The Equalizer) adapted from the Lee Child novel Never Go Back. If a deal is made, Zwick will also sit behind the camera on what’s being tentatively called Jack Reacher 2.

Though it was first believed that a sequel to the 2012 actioner was a no-go given underwhelming box office receipts, it was later revealed that Paramount and Skydance were planning to use Never Go Back as the source material. Everyone wanted Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie to return to take the reins, but he was too busy in post-production on Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (also with Cruise) to commit to anything. And so, the studios started looking elsewhere.

One-Sheet/Trailer Debut For Demonic Possession Film, The Vatican Tapes

15 May 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Having made his mark as one part of the Neveldine/Taylor filmmaking duo (co-directors of Crank, Gamer and Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance), Mark Neveldine’s first solo effort, the Michael Peña-led good vs. evil film The Vatican Tapes, is set to possess horror audiences when it hits theaters this July 24th, via Pantelion Films. The official one sheet and trailer for the demonic horror film has made its way online, and judging from the trailer, it looks like Neveldine is applying the same breakneck speed, frantic pacing that he and Taylor have become quite well known for executing in their films. I’m curious to see how he does as a solo director, and this could very well be quite the entertaining possession flick.

The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil – God versus Satan. Angela Holmes (Olivia Taylor Dudley) is an ordinary 27-year-old until »

Exclusive: Director also plans to shoot sequel to When Love Happens in London later this year.

Seyi Babatope is now shooting what he calls the first Nollywood family film, on location in Lagos, Nigeria.

The film, Lunchtime Heroes, is about a group of seven students who are bad at sports who have to take part in a skills challenge. Their teacher is a volunteer through the National Youth Service Corps who doesn’t fit in at the upper-class school.

“A family film has never been done before here,” Babatope told Screen on the set in Lagos. “I wanted to give African kids something to relate to, to uplift the spirit of the African child. It’s a film families can go see together.”

His cast of young unknowns has impressed him; some were scouted through local churches. “The kids are just so good.”

He added, “If an African kid can be Hannah Montana-ish we could be tapping »
