More Actors Named Chris Who Should Be Cast in Marvel Movies

9 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Praise be to the holy trinity of Marvel: Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt. Are we supposed to believe that it's purely coincidence that the three hottest superheroes in the McU just happen to be named Chris? Please. Marvel needs to get their hands on more Chrises and transform them into some cut up, beefcake super studs. Start your search here, Marvel casting department: Chris Pine What You Know Him From: Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, that movie with Denzel Washington where they're on an unstoppable train (it may have been called Unstoppable), not Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Who He Could Play: The new Hawkeye, once Jeremy Renner ages out of the role (which will be sooner »

Eerie Thriller Veronica’s Room Gains The Wolverine Scribe Mark Bomback

7 March 2014 9:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

2014 has been an unexpectedly strong year for the work of late author Ira Levin. In addition to NBC’s planned miniseries adaptation of his iconic chiller Rosemary’s Baby, which will star Zoe Saldana and hew much more closely to Levin’s novel than the Roman Polanski film, TWC-Dimension is steadily moving forward with an adaptation of his creepy play Veronica’s Room, which now has The Wolverine writer Mark Bomback on board to pen the script.

In Veronica’s Room, college students Susan and Larry are drawn to a creepy New England mansion, where Susan is told that she bears a striking resemblance to the sole inhabitant’s long-dead sister. When the pair are asked by the caretakers to stay with the inhabitant, an old woman suffering from dementia, until she passes away, they reluctantly agree. However, the seemingly merciful errand takes a dark turn as Susan and Larry »

Blu-ray Release: Alexander Ultimate Cut

7 March 2014 9:42 AM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray Release Date: June 3, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $49.99

Studio: Warner Home Video

So apparently, in 2007 when Warner brought out Alexander, Revisited: The Final Cut, they lied. The 2014 Alexander: The Ultimate Cut is another version of the much-edited movie, which director Oliver Stone (Wall Street Money Never Sleeps) apparently can’t let go.

Celebrating the movie’s 10th anniversary, The Ultimate Cut is 206 minutes, 31 minutes longer than the already long 175-minute original film and eight minutes shorter than that Final Cut. Hmmm

“I’ve tried throughout this process to achieve what I believe is the appropriate balance between the inner and outer journeys undertaken by this extraordinary man,” said Stone. “Free from earlier constraints [i.e. defined codes for violence and sexuality], I’ve continued to pursue this great story, and I think I have at last achieved a film that tells a story as it has never been told.”

Good to know.

The originally R-rated movie tells the legend of Alexander, »

Chris Pine To Star In The Line From Director David Gordon Green

29 January 2014 7:48 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Still not really sure what to make of Chris Pine, eh? Guess he.s a leading man, even though audiences don.t think so: they stayed away from Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and they didn.t really thrill to Pine in stuff like Unstoppable (strictly a Denzel vehicle) or his attempt to be like a real hu-mon in People Like Us. But hell, maybe he.s an action star. Maybe his Star Trek legacy suggests he should be blasting stuff with guns, lazers, or some combination of the two. Pine is set to star in The Line, according to THR. Pine would play a patrol agent with a family life in shambles as he attempts to pick up the pieces. However, a raid on a cartel places him in the care of a newly orphaned ten year old boy, who is now a target on both sides. So it.s »

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - 8.15pm, BBC Three

Moodier than the first film in the series, Prince Caspian takes place a year after the Pevensies all fell out of the wardrobe - but when they re-enter the world of Narnia they discover that 1,400 years have passed. Stealing every scene he's in is Eddie Izzard as Reepicheep: a giant, talking CGI rat with a penchant for swordplay. Now there's a sentence you don't see every day. »

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Review

19 January 2014 4:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Kenneth Branagh.

Starring: Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Kenneth Branagh, Keira Knightley.

Running Time: 105 minutes.

Certificate: 12A.

Synopsis: After an injury causes his military career to be cut short, Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) finds himself headhunted by a CIA operative (Kevin Costner). Whilst working as an analyst for the group, Ryan stumbles across a potential worldwide terror attack and must help to stop it.

The character of Jack Ryan is one that many people will be familiar with, having several novels written for him by the late Tom Clancy. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit will be the fifth screen outing for the literary character after previous films The Hunt For Red October, Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger and The Sum Of All Fears. Whilst all of those dealt with a slightly older version of the character, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit sees a younger take on the role, with the plot »

'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' Review: 10 Things to Know About the Chris Pine Spy Thriller

17 January 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week sees the release of "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," the fifth feature built around the CIA analyst character created by the late Tom Clancy, an insurance salesman-turned-bestselling novelist, in a series of blockbuster novels. Unlike the previous adaptations, beginning with 1990's "The Hunt for Red October" and continuing through 2002's mostly forgettable "Sum of All Fears," this new Jack Ryan outing is based on an original story, loosely connected to the source material.

Chris Pine is the fourth actor to play the Ryan character, in a pseudo-origin story that finds the analyst dealing with nefarious Russians (and yes, it's a contemporary story). Keira Knightley costars as his put-upon fiancée and Kevin Costner shows up as his gruff agency handler. Kenneth Branagh plays the Russian gangster almost as broadly as his bad guy from Will Smith's "Wild Wild West." Branagh, in his new role as studio tent-pole filmmaker (following »

Planet of the Apes Sequel Release Date Set for July 2016

15 January 2014 2:29 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Following quickly on the heels of news that director Matt Reeves has signed on to helm the as-yet-untitled Planet of the Apes sequel, Fox has announced that the third instalment in the rebooted franchise will be hitting cinemas on July 29th, 2016.

Reeves of course came on board to helm this summer’s blockbuster sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which will be heading into theatres in July this year.

He’ll be directing this next instalment from a script he’s set to co-write with Mark Bomback (The Wolverine, Unstoppable).

The Apes series has becoming a very promising franchise for the studio in recent years, with Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes rebooting the original movies to the tune of almost half a billion dollars at the global box office, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes expected to do very well this summer. »
