An impossible, but true story, the new film from Robert Zemeckis, The Walk is a live-action, PG-rated entertainment for all audiences, ages 8 to 80. A love letter to the World Trade Center, the film is a 3D and IMAX visual experience, unlike anything audiences have seen.
On August 7, 1974 – the day before Richard Nixon announced he would be resigning from office – Philippe Petit, a French aerialist, surprised the city of New York with a high-wire walk between the towers of the almost-completed and partially occupied World Trade Center. Passersby without a moment to spare stopped in their tracks and looked up. They saw the impossible: a man dancing high in the sky, seemingly in the thin air.
Now, forty years later, Zemeckis – one of cinema’s most accomplished filmmakers at integrating technology in the service of emotional storytelling – is putting moviegoers in Petit’s shoes. The Walk, an epic, big-screen cinematic spectacle, »

Liam Neeson’s particular set of skills have been exploited ad nauseam across the Taken trilogy – and will soon inspire a spinoff TV series – though Deadline is bringing word that the Northern Irish acting veteran is enlisting for Ruben Fleischer’s action-comedy, The Revenger. Yes, after laying siege to most of mainland Europe, Neeson is ready for a new spin on the action genre.
Working from a script served up by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant – best known for their work on Night at the Museum – Fleischer’s film will set up shop at Universal. Granted, there’s little-to-no information to go on for director’s latest venture behind the camera, but considering the irreverent, self-referential tone of Zombieland coupled with the unbridled silliness of the Museum franchise, we’re hoping that Neeson’s take on what we assume will be title character is more comedy than out-and-out action. »

The Revenger: Liam Neeson is set to star in The Revenger, an action-comedy from the writing team of Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Night at the Museum). The duo sold the movie on the strength of their pitch, which is being kept under wraps; now they need to write the script. Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) will direct. [Deadline] Def Jam: Reportedly, Michael B. Jordan (Creed) and Jonah Hill have been considered by Universal as possible candidates to star as Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin, respectively, in a movie about the early years of influential record label Def Jam Recordings. The project is still in the preliminary stages, but the studio recently enjoyed big success with the musical bio-pic Straight Outta Compton. The 1985 film Krush Groove featured a...

News from Hollywood, Los Angeles: Liam Neeson is starring in a new action movie. Except it's technically an action-comedy... and it's called The Revenger.
This follows in the footsteps of Neeson's glorious cameo in Ted 2, where he also has fun with his action persona. Then there's his voice role as Good Cop / Bad Cop in The Lego Movie, which may well be the best thing he's ever done, ever, ever, ever.
The storyline is being kept under wraps but "Reno 911" creators and "Night at the Museum" franchise scribes Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant to are set to pen the script. This insinuates Neeson may well be satirising a genre he has become synonymous with in recent years.

He's signed up for the lead role in The Revenger, which is being directed by Ruben Fleischer. Fleischer previously helmed Zombieland, 30 Minutes Or Less and Gangster Squad, and this new project has been penned by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (the first two Night At The Museum films).
Full details of The Revenger's plot have been kept under wraps so far, so we just have the tantalising prospect of a Neeson-headlined action comedy to leave you with for the time being. More on the project as we hear it, though. »

We have now, apparently, reached the stage of Liam Neeson’s action career where he’s ready to take spoofing it to the next natural stage – an entire action comedy on the big screen. All right, so we don’t know for sure that it will be exactly that, but The Revenger sounds like it could be.Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer has come aboard to direct the film for Universal, based on Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant’s script. Little is known about the screenplay besides the name, but given that it comes from the men behind the first two Night At The Museum films, Hell Baby and Balls Of Fury, expect silliness. Neeson has shown he’s more than willing to be funny in the past, most famously still in Extras, but also in the likes of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Lego Movie and Non-Stop. Fleischer, »

Bold and confident film from Aleksandr Sokurov roams the corridors of the Paris museum to reflect on its history from the Renaissance to the present
With this sophisticated, complex and thoroughly absorbing film, Aleksandr Sokurov has had another night at the museum reverie, a cine-prose poem or animated installation tableau, weaving newsreel footage with eerie floating images above the streets of contemporary Paris – presumably filmed with a drone – and dramatised fantasy scenes.
Thirteen years after Russian Ark, that renowned single-take movie journey through the Hermitage museum in St Petersburg, Sokurov has now alighted on the Louvre in Paris. Francofonia has all sorts of wayward digressions and perambulations around the idea of French and European culture, and the role of the museum in conserving art and promoting the idea of what it means to be human. I suspect, incidentally, that it was Russian Ark back in 2002 that planted a seed for other film-makers’ thoughts on museums, »

Ingrid Bergman ca. early 1940s. Ingrid Bergman movies on TCM: From the artificial 'Gaslight' to the magisterial 'Autumn Sonata' Two days ago, Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” series highlighted the film career of Greta Garbo. Today, Aug. 28, '15, TCM is focusing on another Swedish actress, three-time Academy Award winner Ingrid Bergman, who would have turned 100 years old tomorrow. TCM has likely aired most of Bergman's Hollywood films, and at least some of her early Swedish work. As a result, today's only premiere is Fielder Cook's little-seen and little-remembered From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (1973), about two bored kids (Sally Prager, Johnny Doran) who run away from home and end up at New York City's Metropolitan Museum. Obviously, this is no A Night at the Museum – and that's a major plus. Bergman plays an elderly art lover who takes an interest in them; her »

Are you one of those people who regularly yells at the TV while watching horror movies, because the characters’ dumb decisions annoy you to no end? If so, your chance to prove how much smarter you are than the average slasher movie victim has arrived, in the form of Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn. Combining horror movies with narrative-focused gaming to create a scary attempt at survival, it’s an instant classic that brings immersion to a whole new level.
Set in what seems to be the remote wilderness of Western Canada, Until Dawn is more of an experience than your average video game. It begins with a bang, then fast forwards a year ahead, to a time where eight friends have decided to culminate for a weekend of wintry remembrance in honour of friends who previously perished. They all ascend a gigantic mountain with the promise of friendship, memories and good times, »

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »
