Ant-man Writers Join The Transformers Spin-Offs; 'Cybertron' Movie Planned?

27 May 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Transformers writers room has just gotten a little bigger. Deadline are reporting that screenwriting duo Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari have joined up with Paramount Pictures to help bring to life an expanded universe for the multi-billion dollar franchise, including prequels, sequels and, of course, spin-off movies. While they aren't likely to be recognizable names yet, the pair did help re-write Ant-Man for Marvel, in the wake of Edgar Wright's departure. Barrer & Ferrari join fellow McU scribes Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) in the Transformers writing room, alongside Jeff Pinker (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman and Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend). So far it is unclear which writer will be working on which film, but Deadline have claimed that Barrer & Ferrari expect to be working on a live-action feature. The site also believes that one of the titles »

“How Cool Is That, to Have Schwarzenegger in an Arthouse Movie?” Dp Lukas Ettlin on Maggie

26 May 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

In the late ’90s, a pre-Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger nearly headlined a version of Richard Matheson’s post-apocalyptic classic I Am Legend before budget concerns derailed the project. Almost two decades later, the 67-year-old Schwarzenegger is starring in a decidedly different futuristic plague film. In the indie Maggie, Schwarzenegger plays a farmer who brings his infected daughter (Abigail Breslin) home for the last days of her life. No gunfights, no car chases, no “get to the choppers”: it’s essentially an ephemeral mood piece, photographed in widescreen with an emphasis on tight close-ups and naturalistic lighting. The film’s cinematographer, Lukas Ettlin, spoke to […] »

Beyond Fright: Heist Gone Wrong Film 7 Minutes Gets Poster/Trailer/Release Date

22 May 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I don’t know about you fright fanatics, but I’m a massive fan of heist films. Dog Day Afternoon, Heat, and every other great entry into what can easily be one of the best intense genres around if done right. One film that seems to be a good contender into that kind of movie is Jay Martin’s 7 Minutes (hitting Theaters, VOD & iTunes June 26) . Having cut his teeth being the storyboard artist on films like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Amazing Spiderman, I Am Legend, and Constantine, Martin made the transition to director,when helmed music videos for everyone from Cold War Kids and Deathcab For Cutie, to legendary rapper Nas.

It’s pretty obvious that Jay knows what he wants in front of the camera and how to get it and the heist film led by Luke Mitchell (TV’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L. »

UK poster and trailer for The Burning starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Alice Braga

22 May 2015 12:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release next month, a UK poster and trailer have arrived online for Pablo Fendrik’s acclaimed revenge thriller The Burning, which stars Gael Garcia Bernal (Babel, No) and Alice Braga (I Am Legend, Elysium); check them out here…

Kai (Garcia Bernal), a mysterious and mystical figure, emerges from the Argentinean rainforest to rescue Vania (Braga), who has been kidnapped by mercenaries. Together they face off against the men who have ruthlessly murdered Vania’s father, a poor farmer, and taken over his land.

Part love story, part western, Fendrik turns this latter genre on its head as so-called civilisation becomes a destructive force over both the rich jungle setting and the communities living within it.

The Burning opens in the UK on June 19th.

Watch: Intense First Trailer for Jay Martin's '7 Minutes' Heist Film

21 May 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This is our way out, it's perfect." Starz Digital has unveiled a trailer for Jay Martin's 7 Minutes, a modern day intense heist movie about three friends forced to commit a brazen robbery, but end up in a "game of life-or-death". There's some interesting twists and turns that they hint at in the trailer; I'm curious who that guy is that pops up at the end with the shotgun. The cast includes Luke Mitchell, Leven Rambin, Jason Ritter, Kris Kristofferson, Joel Murray, Kevin Gage and Zane Holtz. The film is the feature debut of music video director Jay Martin, who also worked as a storyboard artist on a number of major features (I Am Legend, Catching Fire). It looks like it might be engaging, with some solid action throughout. Fire it up. Here's the official trailer + poster for Jay Martin's 7 Minutes, also in high def from Apple: Plot synopsis: »

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin in ‘Maggie

Maggie pits Arnold Schwarzenegger against zombies, but not in the way you’d expect. The titular character (Abigail Breslin) is infected, but Wade (Schwarzenegger) isn’t driving into the city to put down the zombie threat, he’s bringing his daughter home before the disease reaches its inhumane conclusion. Protocols are implemented to keep the virus contained to the small midwestern town, but doctors set aside regulations to let Wade spend time with his daughter before she is sent away to the quarantine zone.

The stage of Maggie’s infection is still in its infancy, but any sign of worsening symptoms will get her sent straight to a quarantine area. Wade’s second-wife (Joely Richardson) has sent her children to stay with family outside of town, so it’s just the three of them in a makeshift farmhouse as they wait for inevitable to come. »

'Lord of the Rings' cinematographer Andrew Lesnie dies aged 59

28 April 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Oscar-winner, who worked with Peter Jackson on the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, most recently collaborated with Russell Crowe on The Water Diviner.

The unexpected death of Australian cinematographer Andrew Lesnie has sparked an outpouring of touching sentiment about his skills behind the camera, his huge contribution to his own and New Zealand cinema and also, from those who knew him, his decency and goodwill.

“After 17 years and eight movies together, the loss of Andrew is very hard to bear,” said Peter Jackson in a Facebook post this evening. He described him as “one of the great cinematographers of our time” and “an irreplaceable part of my family” who “always had my back”.

Jackson sought him out for the fantasy/adventure The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring because of the quality of his work on the Australian fairytale Babe. The New Zealand-based collaboration earned Lesnie the 2002 Academy Award for his cinematography »
