Daniel Radcliffe Calls Victor Frankenstein A “Rip-Roaring, Fun Adventure Movie;” Will Not Create Monster Until Film’s End

28 October 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Daniel Radcliffe continues to shed his Harry Potter stardom this month by starring in the grisly horror comedy Horns, the actor has already turned his attention to another upcoming project, in which he takes on one of his most against-type roles to date. In 20th Century Fox’s Victor Frankenstein, Radcliffe will put a new spin on the hunchbacked Igor, assistant and friend to the brilliant and destructive medical student Victor von Frankenstein (James McAvoy).

That a household name like Radcliffe is taking on the part of Igor, traditionally a supporting player in adaptations of Mary Shelley’s horror classic, marks one of many ways in which Victor Frankenstein will set itself apart from the crowd. When asked during an interview for Horns how his Frankenstein would sidestep comparisons to other works, Radcliffe explained that, in addition to there being “a lot of action:”

“I think our Frankenstein is a really kind of rip-roaring, »

Mindy Newell: Ho-Hum Heroics

20 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Im-not-so-ho, the best thing about The Flash is Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West and John Wesley Shipp as Barry’s father. Im-not-so-ho, the best things about Gotham are Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald “Penguin” Cobblepot. Im-not-so-ho, the best things about Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. are Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson and Ming Na-Wen as Melinda May.

What does that say about me?

Am I getting old? Am I no longer able to appreciate a pretty-boy face or a hot young thang? Am I just being nostalgic in my appreciation of Martin, who originated the part of Tony in Rent on Broadway and played Detective Ed Green (opposite the brilliant and missed Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Brisco) on Law & Order, which I still regularly watch in reruns, and Ming Na-Wen, who played Dr. Jing-Mei “Deb” Chen on E.R., »

Entertainment Geekly: Or maybe 'Twilight' was the best thing to happen to Comic-Con

31 July 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

“Were the Twilight movies good?” is not a question I want to even ask right now. It’s too complicated, with too many extremist perspectives on either side. There are the kids who grew up with the Twilight phenomenon as their entire teenage pop culture prism. (Remember: Thanks to the annual-ish release strategy and the real-life romance angle and the fact that Twilight soundtracks were sort of a thing, Twilight as experienced by »

12 Movies That Could Have Had Awesome Sequels

8 July 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

In the last couple of decades, Hollywood has come down with a bad case of sequilitis. Prior to the year 2000, there were only a handful of billion-dollar franchises on which the studios could rely. Now, there are over 30. Comic books, literary adaptations and established brands provide the built-in recognition and wide appeal that will draw audiences to the multiplex, regardless of whether or not this endless parade of follow-ups are actually any good.

Despite this increasing reliance on sequels to generate box office dollars, there are plenty of movies that seem to have set themselves up for a second, third or even final installment that never comes to fruition. The go-to option is to reboot an established franchise instead of taking a chance on a new one, which has a lot to do with the continued repetitiveness and mediocrity of most franchise fare.

With that in mind, this »

How to Train Your Dragon 2 movie review: flying higher

26 June 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An absolute delight, even better than the first film; a gorgeously animated ode to peacemaking, nonconformity, and sticking to your principles in the face of ultimate adversity. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): absolutely nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The world is bigger on dragonback, as Hiccup — dragon whisperer and heir to the tiny throne of the Viking island village Berk — is discovering, joyfully. And we are there with him in a stunningly animated return to this fantastical realm. How to Train Your Dragon 2 isn’t only a glorious narrative expansion of the people and places we met in the first film, it also represents an astonishing leap in computer animation that makes Hiccup’s world even more touchably real than it was before. It seems like a paradox, »

First trailer for Errol Flynn film The Last of Robin Hood starring Kevin Kline

24 June 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A first look trailer for The Last of Robin Hood, from Samuel Goldwyn Films, has arrived online , and you can view it below….

Directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, the film stars Academy Award winner Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda, Last Vegas) as legendary leading man Errol Flynn, alongside Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise) and Dakota Fanning (Push).

Errol Flynn, the swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies man, flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with an aspiring actress, Beverly Aadland. The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl’s fame-obsessed mother, Florence. It all came crashing to an end in October 1959, when events forced the relationship into the open, sparking an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother »

Fox’s Frankenstein Flick Officially Titled Victor Frankenstein, Gets New Synopsis

18 June 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the past few years, we’ve seen a number of creative takes on Mary Shelley’s iconic horror novel Frankenstein, some much better than others. To name a few of the most high-profile ones, Tim Burton delivered a gorgeously animated kiddie flick called Frankenweenie, Stuart Beattie directed the action-fueled, thinly-written fantasy thriller I, Frankenstein, and Showtime very recently compelled us by recounting Doctor Victor Frankenstein’s origin story on horror series Penny Dreadful.

Now, however, it’s time for us to get back to basics, with a Gothic new version of the Frankenstein tale led by James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe. The film, directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number SlevinPush), is in post-production now, and we’re finally hearing some details about it. Though we had all been referring to the project as Frankenstein, now word has emerged that the actual title is Victor Frankenstein. That’s a »

Chris Evans: Marvel's superhero go-to guy

22 March 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The star of The Winter Soldier is happy to be a cog in the machine, as long as that machine isn't a pasta restaurant

Chris Evans does not take umbrage when I tell him he has movie-star anonymity. By which I mean, he may be a leading man in a superhero franchise that generates vast mountain ranges of cash, but whatever innate charisma is beloved by the camera seems less obvious in person, where he comes across as a regular, affable guy – albeit one who spends an inordinate amount of time in the gym. "Good," he says. "That's the goal. You want to strike that happy medium: the balance of being able to find creative satisfaction in your profession, be able to afford a roof over your head but still have the freedom to live a relatively normal life." But when the prospect of playing Captain America in Marvel's huge »

How will 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' handle Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy?

4 March 2014 2:14 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

When news broke Monday that Avengers star Scarlett Johansson was expecting her first child, movie fans wondered: What’s going to happen to Avengers: Age of Ultron? More importantly, what’s going to happen to Black Widow in Age of Ultron? With principal photography set to start in the next month and Johansson reportedly due in August, it seems as though the actress’ pregnancy will align directly with the film’s shooting window.

In other words: that signature outfit and a baby bump won’t exactly mix.

So what’s a franchise to do? We’re pretty confident they wouldn »

Seth Meyer's Emotional (and Hilarious!) Final Weekend Update—Watch Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg and More Say Goodbye

2 February 2014 9:55 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's time to take a bow, Seth Meyers. The long-time Saturday Night Live writer and star took his place behind the Weekend News Update date for the very last time on Saturday night—and true SNL fashion, some very famous friends joined him. Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg and the always-eccentric Stefon, (aka Bill Hader) stopped by Studio 8H to give new Late Night host a warm sendoff into his post-SNL career. Although we were slightly disappointed that we didn't get a final, "Really?!" sketch from Amy and Seth, the special three-minute adieu was both heartfelt and hilarious.  After visiting some of Stefon's favorite clubs—Crease, Twice, Slice, Gush, Push and … »

2014 Sundance Diary, Day 5: Memorable Characters Descend on Park City

21 January 2014 5:26 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Exhaustion is settling in but the movies have been consistently good to great. Four movies in a row that variably thrilled or entertained me but definitely left with strong impressions of unforgettable characters. And one of them may be a masterpiece.

We’ll start at the top. John Michael McDonagh, brother of Martin (“In Bruges”), who wrote and directed “The Guard,” has done something truly special with “Calvary”, a fascinating dissection of religion and its impact on an Irish community, or rather lack thereof. Brendan Gleeson gives us another amazing performance and McDonagh’s script challenges in unexpected ways. It’s a film that’s dense with dialogue and philosophical conversation that truly takes its time to come together. Like when you’re going home. As I watched “Calvary,” I had some difficult digging through its themes to the point that I wasn’t sure it worked at all until the very end, »
