16 Werner Herzog Films Find a Home with Fandor! Also, What’s Fandor?

17 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Werner Herzog is no stranger to film fans, but it’s possible that Fandor is. If like me you’re a fan of the former yet blindly unaware of the latter then this news may be very welcome indeed. Fandor is a streaming video service featuring feature films and shorts from all around the world, and while their catalog includes just about every genre the titles are far from the typical ones available on Netflix or at your local Redbox. The site’s tagline is “All for film,” and it’s clear immediately that they truly do love cinema thanks not only to the availability of obscure titles but also in the clean simplicity of the layout. The service costs $10/month or $90/year, but you can get a free two week trial to check things out and see if it’s for you. I’m neck-deep in the site now and will have a proper review of »

The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Edge of Tomorrow

16 April 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the past few years, time loop movies have been making a slight comeback in mainstream Hollywood. The genre is one rarely ventured into, with good reason, but the quality we’ve seen recently has been spectacular. So with baited breath, and fingers cross, I am wholeheartedly looking forward to Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow this summer.

The biggest reason I am it is not the fact that Tom Cruise is front and centre, but rather that Emily Blunt is right beside him in the female lead.

Blunt has been rising through the ranks over the years, making huge strides across a slew of genres with movies like The Adjustment Bureau, Your Sister’s Sister, and Looper, not to mention Disney’s upcoming Into the Woods. She traverses independent and blockbuster movies like few are capable of, and seeing her return to blockbuster territory here is what’s got »

Jerry Bruckheimer Drops Some Top Gun 2 Plot Details

31 March 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Maverick. Iceman. Goose. Kenny Loggins. They all became household names in the 1980s thanks to a little movie called Top Gun. Produced by Don Simpson and Jerry BruckheimerTop Gun grossed an obscene amount of money by making the Navy look both totally cool and vaguely homoerotic. But decades later, when ace fighter pilots have been replaced by decidedly less cool unmanned aerial drones, is the highway to the danger zone closed for good? Bruckheimer doesn’t think so. In fact, he’s got the pedal to the floor and he’s speeding down the commuter lane with Top Gun 2 in his passenger seat.

It’s been almost a year since we’ve last seen assurances from Bruckheimer that Top Gun would in fact reappear to take our breaths away. Shortly thereafter we also got word from Val Kilmer that he’s all oiled up and ready to go. »

Hunger Games Actor Dayo Okeniyi Joins Terminator Genesis

28 March 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Dayo Okeniyi, who played Thresh in The Hunger Games, has signed on to play the son of Miles Dyson, who was the Director of Special Projects at Cyberdyne Systems and portrayed by Joe Morton in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Dyson was the inventor of the neural-net processor, which would eventually lead to the development of Skynet. Due to this, he inadvertantly became the man most responsible for Judgment Day. His family was briefly seen in the film, before Dyson joined the T-800, Sarah Connor, and John Connor on a fatal quest to destroy Skynet.  Okeniyi joins a cast that is said to feature the return of franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger as the titular Terminator and adds Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney (Jack Reacher) as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke (Public Enemies) as John Connor, and J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man) in an unspecified role. Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World »

Is Jai Courtney the Next Sam Worthington. Or Something More?

27 March 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jai Courtney photographed by Davis Factor for Flaunt MagazineNews broke today that 28 year-old rising star Jai Courtney won't have to turn down Terminator: Genesis as previously suspected due to his Divergent contract. He'll be able to make both Insurgent and the stupidly rebooting Terminator franchise. (I know I've said it about a dozen times but why on earth would anyone need to reboot a time travel franchise? You've got your "do-over!" right there in the narrative for chrissakes). The studios have worked out a deal and so he's officially on board Terminator: Genesis. He'll be taking over the role of Kyle Reese originated by Michael Biehn and later played by both Jonathan Jackson and Anton Yelchin. None of those three previous actors are anything alike so the role of our future savior's time travelling babydaddy is flexible you might say. 

But is Jai Courtney?

I'm not here to judge but to ask you to. »

No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.

‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Trailer #2: Tom Cruise Has Infinite Lives

25 March 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Tom Cruise is usually a pro at chewing bubblegum and kicking butt in his movies, but in the upcoming Edge of Tomorrow his character – Lt. Col. Bill Cage – is more experienced at drumming up support for the army – putting his good looks and charisma to use – than actual fighting. That changes when Cage is punished for insubordination by being deployed in the field, as part of the human resistance against an extraterrestrial army that’s invaded Earth.

Edge of Tomorrow was directed by Doug Liman (Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith), who drew from a screenplay co-written by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) and Jez and John-Henry Butterworth (Fair Game), based on the novel All You Need Is Kill by Japanese author Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Cruise spends most of the film sharing the screen with Emily Blunt ...

Lee Child reveals how 'Jack Reacher' came into being

19 March 2014 2:01 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

New Delhi, March 19: Bestselling author Lee Child has now revealed how he thought about Jack Reacher.

Reacher, who real name is Jim Grant, said that in 1995, after working for 18 years for Granada Television, he was made unemployed.

His bosses told him that due to restructuring his role as a presentation director had disappeared, however, he suspects that his reputation as a tough-talking trade union man had resulted in him being blacklisted.

He said that until then he had never written anything before but he was a huge reader of crime fiction, and bought six pads of paper and some pencils that weekend, and on Monday. »

Rubicon has been described as The Seven Samurai meets Seal Team 6. This live-action video by Machinima is a prequel to what could become a web series adaption of the graphic novel.

In this live action prequel to last year's critically acclaimed graphic novel, ‎Mike, a seasoned Navy Seal turned fixer, and Smash, his loyal ex-cia partner (whose agency connections allow them to operate in secrecy and with relative impunity) must face their greatest challenge yet: a disturbing alliance between a powerful Mexican Drug Cartel and the Japanese Yakuza.

13 March 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Rubicon prequel arrived in my inbox couple of days ago and I watched it with with very low expectations. But, after watching the 12-minute episode, consider me a huge fan of the concept.

Neil Patrick Harris: 'Rosamund Pike sex scene was robotic'

11 March 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Neil Patrick Harris has described filming a sex scene with Rosamund Pike as "robotic".

The 40-year-old How I Met Your Mother actor will star alongside Pike and Ben Affleck in the upcoming movie adaptation of Gone Girl.

Speaking to Out magazine's April issue, Harris described filming the scene with the Jack Reacher actress in front of the director.

"We had to rehearse the sex scene with David [Fincher], like every inch of it - 'Then you put your mouth on his d**k here, and then this number of thrusts, and then you ejaculate'. It was weird because we're technically breaking down the sex scene," he explained.

"He wanted it to be almost robotic, that we know exactly where we are, position-wise, where everything goes. And yet, through all of that, the whole 'I'm gay' element was never even thought about."

Harris also revealed that women still want to marry him, »

Miles Teller and Jai Courtney on their new 'Fantastic Four' and 'Terminator' movies

11 March 2014 1:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Miles Teller and Jai Courtney are no strangers to the Hollywood movie making machine. Miles has won critical acclaim for roles in films such as "The Spectacular Now" and the upcoming Sundance hit "Whiplash" as well as candidly charm audiences in mainstream fare like "Footloose" and January's "That Awkward Moment."  Courtney is an Aussie TV veteran who was "showcased" alongside Bruce Willis in "A Good Day to Die Hard" and had supporting roles in "Jack Reacher" and "I, Frankenstein."  Both men will be seen next in Neil Burger's "Divergent," but it goes without saying that most movie fans are interested in their next big projects. Courtney was recently cast in the "Terminator" reboot "Terminator: Genesis" as Kyle Reese, a character previously played by Michael Biehn and Anton Yelchin.  Teller has become a somewhat controversial choice to play the stretchy Reed Richards (aka Mr. Fantastic) in 20th Century Fox's revamp of the "Fantastic Four. »

‘Wolverine’ Director To Bring Travis McGee To Life

5 March 2014 9:55 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

James Mangold (3:10 To Yuma, The Wolverine) is in negotiations to direct a film adaptation of John D. MacDonald’s The Deep Blue Good-By, according to Deadline. The book was the first of a 21-part mystery series starring lead character Travis McGee, and Fox is hoping to launch a franchise with it. They believe Travis Mcgee has the potential to become a character like Jason Bourne, Jack Ryan, or- more recently- Jack Reacher, that can anchor a series of films.

At one stage, Leonardo DiCaprio was set to play him, but that fell through due to the actor’s schedule. DiCaprio will remain onboard as a producer, though. So if Mangold does sign on the dotted line, it’s safe to say the hunt for the right guy to portray McGee will begin.

The character is described as something of a beach bum in Florida that lives on his houseboat, »

'Wolverine' Director Takes Travis McGee Tale 'The Deep Blue Good-by'

4 March 2014 12:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Mangold is in negotiations to direct an adaptation of John D. MacDonald's 1964 novel The Deep Blue Good-by, which was the first in a long-running series of books that centered on Travis McGee.

Travis McGee lives on a houseboat in Fort Lauderdale dubbed The Busted Flush, taking on "salvage consultant" jobs whenever he is running low on money, recovering lost items for clients for half of the profits. When he meets the battered Lois, he tries to track down her abusive boyfriend, a journey which becomes far more violent and complicated than he imagined. The character, who appeared in 21 of John D. MacDonald's books, is seen as the precursor to other popular literary heroes such as Jack Reacher and Spenser: For Hire, who has a penchant of helping out damsels in distress during his adventures.

Leonardo DiCaprio was previously attached to play Travis McGee back in May, but he is no longer starring. »

Don Granger Takes Exec Veep Post At David Ellison’s Skydance Productions

4 March 2014 11:54 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: As David Ellison‘s Skydance Productions gets more creatively ambitious in the popcorn pictures it makes in partnership with Paramount Pictures, the label has added a former Par stalwart exec in Don Granger. Granger joins Ellison and Dana Goldberg at Skydance in the post of Evp Feature Productions. It is a newly created position and he will report to Goldberg, the company’s chief creative officer. As Skydance continues to pursue tentpole films like with the reboot of The Terminator franchise, Granger seems like an ideal fit because he has spent most of his career shepherding exactly these kinds of films. He most recently worked with Paramount and Skydance producing Jack Reacher, and before that had a strong relationship with Tom Cruise as president of Motion Picture Production at United Artists when Cruise and Paula Wagner revived the label. Granger before that was senior exec at C/W Productions »

James Mangold Boarding Travis McGee Tale ‘The Deep Blue Good-By’

4 March 2014 11:21 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: James Mangold is negotiating to direct The Deep Blue Good-By, the 1964 John D. MacDonald novel that kicked off series of mystery novels with character Travis McGee. This has long been eyed by Fox as the launch of a star-driven franchise based on the beach bum McGee, a forerunner of muscular solitary heroes like Jack Reacher and Spenser For Hire, helping (and romancing) damsels in distress as he kicks ass against the powerful. The film was originally set as a star vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio. That’s not going to happen now, as DiCaprio has plenty of work in front of him and this film, with a most recent script draft by Mystic River novelist Dennis Lehane, is certainly ready to go. DiCaprio and his Appian Way partner Jennifer Davisson-Killoran are producing with Amy Robinson and Chernin Entertainment. Previous script drafts were done by Dana Stevens and Kario Salem. Mangold, »
