Director Neil Marshall Talks Constantine, The Descent, His Thoughts on the Recent Mad Max: Fury Road Images, and More at the Saturn Awards

28 June 2014 8:23 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last Thursday, Collider attended the red carpet festivities for the 40th Annual Saturn Awards, held at at the Castaway Starlight Ballroom in Burbank, Calif.  Always one of the best events for geeks with eclectic tastes, this is the only award show where you can find cinematographers from obscure exploitation movies walking the red carpet right alongside A-list directors, with both getting equal attention. While working the carpet we got a chance to chat with director Neil Marshall about a slew of his past, present and future projects.  During the conversation, we discussed how The Descent is arguably scarier than a gun pointed at your head, the upcoming book of essays on the film’s themes, the origins of Doomsday and his thoughts on the new Mad Max: Fury Road stills, how network censors cured Constantine of lung cancer, what the NBC series’ monsters may look like and more. Here's the video interview with Marshall. »

S7AR Wars: Looks Like Jade, Tastes Like Red

13 June 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to S7AR Wars, my weekly engagement with Star Wars Episode VII news, rumors and speculation and - slowly but surely - where I confront my overall problems with being a fan that would love to know everything and feel like he knows nothing.

On that latter half, because if I don’t put it at the top, I’m afraid I won’t come back around to it, I must admit I was puzzled that we were so starved for real dispatches from the Star Wars set this week. We spent the first half reporting that more Star Wars movies would be filmed at Pinewood (something we’ve known ever since the time was booked at the studio) and yesterday talking about a Harrison Ford ankle injury. That’s literally all we know about that ankle situation, outside of a rumbling that the injury was sustained on the Millennium Falcon. »

Game of Thrones Season Four – Episode 9 Review

10 June 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the ninth episode of Game of Thrones Season Four….

The Watchers on the Wall.

Directed by Neil Marshall.

Written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

The usual format of these Game of Thrones reviews – a by-character breakdown, emulating the chapter perspectives of George R. R. Martin’s books – falters this week. For the first time since Season 2′s ‘Blackwater,’ this episode focuses entirely on a single storyline: the vast, yet undisciplined, Wildling army attacking the fortified, but few, Night’s Watch.

Episode 9 has a rich history in Game of Thrones’ plotting. Season 1′s saw the be-ned-ing of Eddard Stark; season 2 staged the aforementioned Battle of Blackwater Bay; and, most recently, season 3 cordially invited all to its Red Wedding. But perhaps after Joffrey’s death in episode 2 and Prince Oberyn’s ocular obliteration last week, ‘Episode 9′ was no longer the series’ determined highlight. Nope. It seems Benioff »

NBC's 'Constantine' Promises to Stay True to the Comic Book

5 June 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We haven't heard much about NBC's Constantine since the network released the first trailer last month, but it is shaping up to be one of this fall's most anticipated new shows. Matt Ryan plays the title character, John Constantine, a demon hunter and occult master, who joins forces with Liv (Lucy Griffiths), who has the ability to see into other worlds and predict supernatural occurrences. Matt Ryan and Lucy Griffiths recently shared new details about the series in a recent interview, with the actors revealing that the series is trying to stay as close as possible to the DC/Vertigo comic book, how Liv really feels about John, working with pilot director Neil Marshall and more.

The Hellblazer comic book series depicted John Constantine as a blonde British man, which wasn't exactly what the fans got in the 2005 theatrical adaptation Constantine. Matt Ryan spoke about the breadth of material the »

Watch Matt Ryan Get His Keanu on in the First Trailer for NBC's 'Constantine' (Video)

12 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Back in 2005, Keanu Reeves starred in "Constantine," a supernatural thriller whose central character was John Constantine, a hard luck paranormal private eye whose battles with the forces of darkness also included trying to save his own soul. The character originated during Alan Moore's influential run on "Swamp Thing," before continuing on in his own long-running comic book for Vertigo Comics (entitled "Hellblazer") ever since. Well, NBC, in the rush to make television just as superhero-filled as the multiplexes, have given the series order for "Constantine," another adaptation of the property, and unleashed a fire-and-brimstone-filled 3-minute preview (below) to get you properly amped.

This new "Constantine" features Welsh actor Matt Ryan in the title role, bringing the character back to his British roots. His look is much more in keeping with the comic book, as well: ruffled, poorly bleached blond hair, with thick stubble and wrinkled overcoat. It's not exact, »

First Official Image of Matt Ryan as John Constantine

13 March 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

That didn’t take long. We recently brought word that a pilot episode for a Constantine TV series was given the green light over at NBC, with Matt Ryan starring as John Constantine. The pilot is now filming and NBC has released the first official image of the new Constantine.

John Constantine is described as a working-class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blond hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who has been studying the dark arts since he was a teenager. When the daughter of a late friend is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her.”

The pilot story comes from Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist), who worked on the script with David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies). The two will also serve as executive producers on the project. Neil Marshall (The Descent, Doomsday) is directing the pilot episode.

First Look: Matt Ryan in NBC’s Constantine TV Series

13 March 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

NBC has released your first look at star Matt Ryan (“Layer Cake”) from their upcoming “Constantine” TV show, based on the D.C. comic book “Hellblazer.” The character was previously portrayed by a very non-British Keanu Reeves in the movie of the same name directed by Francis Lawrence, but this time around they’re giving you an honest to goodness Brit in the role. Ryan will star as the titular demon hunter, one John Constantine, a man “struggling with his faith is haunted by the sins of his past but is suddenly thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness.” The show co-stars Lucy Griffiths, Harold Perrineau, and Charles Halford. Neil Marshall (of “The Descent” and “Doomsday” fame) is directing the pilot, with “Man of Steel” and “Batman Begins” guy David S. Goyer having adapted the show from the comic originally created by Daniel Cerone. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2008

12 February 2014 4:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 13 Feb 2014 - 06:39

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2008 - another great year for lesser-seen gems...

For some, 2008 will be memorable as the year of The Dark Knight, with its astonishingly unhinged turn from the late Heath Ledger. Alternatively, it could be remembered as the year a legion Indiana Jones fans left cinemas glum-faced, having sat through Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

Elsewhere, Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan sang and danced on a Greek island in Mamma Mia!, while Will Smith played an alcoholic superhero in Hancock. But as usual, 2008 offered plenty of watchable movies outside the top 10, which is where we swoop in - like Hancock after a bottle of gin.

So as usual, here's our selection of 25 underappreciated films from the year 2008 - starting with a British horror film starring Michael Fassbender...

What Is Going On With Superman?

3 February 2014 1:20 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Well, the last week or so has been interesting if you’re a Superman fan, hasn’t it? After months of hearing news that pertained almost exclusively to the other characters in his sequel, we finally started to see the focus shift back to Big Blue, himself. We had Henry Cavill sightings in Detroit, with excited fans chatting up the actor and seemingly getting him to spill important bits of info. Then, on Friday, we got to find out who Snyder and Co. have cast as Superman’s nemesis, Lex Luthor.

Yes, the casting of Jesse Eisenberg started a firestorm of discussion. It was a meme-ready casting, for sure- with my favorites being about how fans wanted Heisenberg (Bryan Cranston), and instead they got Eisenberg. This has lead to several of our brother sites around the web posting columns about why we should all give the Social Network actor a chance. »
