Review: Hugo – With Exclusive Insight From Sandy Powell

22 December 2011 5:06 PM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Acclaimed director Martin Scorsese concocts a cracking children’s fantasy in homage to silent movie magician Georges Méliès; his beloved Hugo barely drops a cog in its methodically realised mechanical world.

Scorsese has unmistakably made a children’s movie. Some may argue not as it is crammed full of references to early moving pictures that only adults could probably recognise. Yet Scorsese’s purpose, like that of his hero Méliès, is to entertain and inform. For all the po-faced wittering by cinema scholars that Hugo is meant for them, one has to wonder if deep down Scorsese really cares if any adults see the film at all.

The blue of the Station Inspector's uniform is deliberately intensified. »

19 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Casting on the long-gestating adaptation of Orson Scott Card's sci-fi Ya novel Ender's Game has been falling into place over the past month, with Asa Butterfield (Hugo) signed on for the lead role [2] and Hailee Steinfeld and Ben Kingsley in talks [3] to join [4] as well. Now Canadian teen star Brendan Meyer has boarded the project in the role of Stilson, a classmate who bullies Ender. Meyer is best known for his lead role in the Canadian series Mr. Young, which follows a child prodigy who graduates college at 14 and returns to his high school as a science teacher. Gavin Hood will direct the film from his own script, about a gifted boy who is drafted into a special military program that trains children to fight against an alien species called the Formics. Ender's Game will begin shooting early next year for a March 2013 release.

James Frain Will Ride With ‘The Lone Ranger’

16 December 2011 8:54 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The road for the big screen adaptation of The Lone Ranger has been long, windy, and bumpy. First the movie was running at full steam, then it was shut down for going over budget, and then it was back on track with a reduced budget and some minor script changes. But those reductions in budget apparently weren’t enough to keep the cast from growing, as THR tells us that British actor James Frain has hopped on board the production, set for the role of a railroad foreman.

Frain, whose biggest feature was Tron: Legacy, but has made his name with television shows such as True Blood and The Tudors, will be playing the right hand man of the movie’s villain, Tom Wilkinson. Meanwhile, Armie Hammer will be donning the black mask of the Ranger himself, while Johnny Depp will be taking the reins as Tonto, the Ranger’s Native American sidekick. »

‘Mission: Impossible’ Director Brad Bird Updates on ‘1906’ Movie

15 December 2011 11:55 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

By the time earthquake movie “1906” gets approved for production, California may experience another massive earthquake. “Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol” director Brad Bird updated the status for the ambitious film with MTV News. He stated the problem with the possible film is with the script, and not with budgetary problems as reported by previous Internet web sites. The project has been in development since 2009. “It’s all script. The Internet is not a very reliable place for information,” he said to MTV News. “There have been reports as budget, but it never got that far because you have to solve story problems first.” Bird described that it is a “challenging story” to get together. The film “1906” will be an adaptation of James Dalessandro’s 2004 novel. The book is set during the great San Francisco earthquake and fire, which addresses the tale of political corruption, vendettas, romance, rescue and murder. Dalessandro is »

True Blood: Christopher Meloni Officially Joins Season 5

TVGuide is reporting that True Blood has found its latest guest star in Law & Order: Svu vet Christopher Meloni. Meloni will be playing an ancient vampire with power over Eric and Bill in the show's fifth season, scheduled to debut next summer, in his first TV role since leaving Svu. His character name and any detailed description have yet to be released, but when the show resumes production, the picture will be a whole lot clearer.

This, of course, isn't Meloni's first venture into pay cable drama, as he maintained a role on HBO's Oz for four seasons playing charming sociopath Chris Keller. He's also made appearances in two other Law & Order incarnations (Trial by Jury and the original series), Scrubs, and Homicide: Life on the Street, as well as films like Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, »

10 Reasons Why We Can’t Wait For Game Of Thrones Season 2

22 November 2011 2:56 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The other day I spent the best part of an hour mindlessly browsing through the TV box sets at HMV before I remembered why I had gone there in the first place; to ascertain the release date of HBO’s Game of Thrones Season 1 on Blu-ray. According to the girl at the counter their computers said 2013, which basically means, “We have no bloody idea.”

My searches on the Internet have proved equally as fruitless. I’m a little disappointed at this, because I’ve been hanging out to re-watch the series as it was meant to be seen – in crisp 1080p. The best estimate I’ve found comes from http://www.westeros.org, an invaluable resource for all things A Song of Ice and Fire, who are suggesting the 19th March as a viable date (UK). I was hoping that this article would coincide with the blu-ray release but since »

Season 2 - In Production

Season 2 of "Game of Thrones" is about five months away, and on Sunday night (Nov. 20) HBO offered up a first look at what's coming in the spring.

What's coming, based on these two minutes of video, looks pretty intense -- which should not be a surprise to anyone who watched Season 1. The teaser offers glimpses of some of the new characters joining the story, including Natalie Dormer ("The Tudors") as Margaery Tyrell, the bride-to-be of Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony), along with returning stars Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Maisie Williams and others.

There are also a couple of gorgeous-looking shots of scenes from the coming season -- the fires burning on the beach at the 1:30 mark is a particular standout.

Executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss also talk about the challenge of expanding the world of the show in Season 2, the new sets that had »

17 November 2011 4:56 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Henry Cavill on Immortals, Superman and setting his sights on James Bond

10 November 2011 10:02 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Seven years ago, Christopher Nolan considered Henry Cavill for the title role in the Batman reboot before deciding he was too young, while Twilight author Stephanie Meyer wanted him to play vampire Edward, but he was considered too old.

On top of that, he was almost cast as the new James Bond, losing out to Daniel Craig, and was set to star in a Superman film directed by McG before the project was cancelled.

But finally Cavill is on the cusp of global fame. Immortals hits the big screen tomorrow (November 11), and he was given a second chance at Superman with Zack Snyder's reboot Man of Steel, which he's shooting now for release in June 2013.

Cavill was announced earlier this year as the next man to don the red cape - and the first non-American to do so. He's well aware of the privilege and the pressure.
