'Apes,' 'Birdman' surge as sound editors round out pre-Oscar industry nominations

14 January 2015 2:28 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The final guild/industry group to declare nominees did so this afternoon as the Motion Picture Sound Editors (Mpse) spoke up with a roll call of players for the 62nd Golden Reel Awards. On the film side of things, "Birdman" and "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" had the best showing with three nominations each. I've been wondering if the latter could slide into Oscar play this year, but it's hard to gauge here, as "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" had a nice Mpse showing, too. In the effects/foley category, "Fury" is featured as well, also a strong possibility to pop up. All other expected players ("American Sniper," "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Unbroken," etc.) are featured. We'll see how the sound branch shakes it all out tomorrow but I'm a little more confused by where they'll end up going than usual, I must say. Check out »

9 January 2015 11:38 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

For those of you who have been playing the game for the past decade, here’s a comic strip that you might enjoy that was created by Dark Legacy Comics. Check it out and let us know if it reflects the reality of being a Wow gamer.

Michael Keaton Lined Up for a Role in Kong: Skull Island

8 January 2015 11:38 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in September, Legendary revealed that Tom Hiddleston (demigod Loki in the Thor films and The Avengers) will play the lead role in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island, and a few weeks ago it was revealed that J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy) is set to co-star in the film. Now another big name is attached to the movie that will bring the king of the apes back to the big screen.

Deadline reports that Michael Keaton (Birdman, Batman, Beetlejuice) is looking to join the cast of Kong: Skull Island in an unknown role.

A Legendary film, Universal Pictures will release Kong: Skull Island in 3D and IMAX 3D on March 10th, 2017. Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) directs off a screenplay by John Gatins (Flight) and Max Borenstein (2014’s Godzilla).

Michael Keaton In Talks For Kong: Skull Island

8 January 2015 4:25 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With three major roles on screen last year, including his stunning, awards-nominated work as washed-up actor Riggan Thompson in Birdman, Michael Keaton had one hell of a 2014, and it appears that he’s looking to maintain the momentum of that career resurgence in coming months. Deadline reports that the actor is finalizing a deal to take on an unknown part in Legendary’s anticipated Kong: Skull Island, which the studio has already staked out for 2017.

Should everything come together, Keaton will join Tom Hiddleston and J.K. Simmons in the fantasy adventure film, which will serve as a hard reboot of the King Kong franchise while still honoring series’ mythology. Little is known about the film other than its basic logline, but Legendary is clearly aiming to use it to kick off a major Kong franchise.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer, episodes of FX’s You’re the Worst) has been set to direct, »

7 January 2015 5:38 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warcraft hasn.t even been released yet, but that's not stopping Duncan Jones from fielding questions about the potential for a Warcraft 2. The director insists that the 2016 blockbuster will perfectly set up the universe in which Warcraft will take place, and while his movie will act independantly, there's also been left room for further tales to be told too. Duncan Jones, who is a rather splendid filmmaker in addition to being David Bowie.s son, explained to Man Made Movies that he knows exactly what is expected of him with the first Warcraft film, and segued that thought into ideas for how the movie could provide the ground floor for a larger movie franchise. Said the director, "I know that my job in this first film is to establish certain characters, places and culture while telling a story that a broad audience can be excited by! Hopefully, if I have »

Michael Keaton In Talks To Join Kong: Skull Island

7 January 2015 5:08 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Michael Keaton has earned rave reviews for his stellar performance in 2014's Birdman, and now it would seem he's parlaying his career resurgence into a role in what could be one of the biggest blockbusters of 2017. THR reports that Keaton is in talks to join the cast of Kong: Skull Island, the King Kong spin-off film that already has Tom Hiddleston and J.K. Simmons set to star.

I'm definitely on board with Keaton joining a big blockbuster like this, but there's no word yet on what character he might play, largely because most of the film's details are still shrouded in secrecy. The script is still being worked on by Flight and Need For Speed scribe John Gatins (Godzilla writer Max Borenstein wrote the original draft), and Legendary Pictures and Universal have set a release date of March 10th, 2017. The Kings of Summer helmer Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing, and here's »

Duncan Jones says Warcraft will explore “first contact” between Orcs and Humans

7 January 2015 11:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The hugely-popular fantasy video game series Warcraft will be making the jump from monitors to the big screen next year courtesy of Duncan Jones, and the Moon and Source Code director has been speaking about his upcoming epic during a chat with Chinese site Mtime (via ManMadeMovies), stating that it will explore “first contact” between Orcs and Humans.

“From the moment I first talked to Blizzard, the plan was to start our film with the first time Orcs met Humans. First contact! I think that for a world with so much newness to explain, this was a wise choice, especially when so many people in our audience may not know anything about Warcraft… it was important that some of our characters would be seeing the world fresh as well, and that the audience could see the situation through their eyes… A Warcraft film should not be about a good race »

Duncan Jones Hopes To Kickstart A Franchise With Warcraft

7 January 2015 5:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though a lengthy post-production process remains, principal photography on Warcraft is complete, and director Duncan Jones (Moon) has been discussing the project with Chinese movie news website Mtime. ManMadeMovies published a translation, revealing the long-term hopes Jones has for the game adaptation.

Peter Jackson did a magnificent job of ‘setting the table’ for Tolkien’s universe with his first Lord Of The Rings film. I know that my job in this first film is to establish certain characters, places and culture while telling a story that a broad audience can be excited by. Hopefully, if I have done my job right, people will want to know and see more! There is certainly plenty more to tell… I would love to be part of that process of expanding on the lore that makes up Warcraft, but it will depend on what you, the audience, think of our first film.”

Duncan Jones Divulges 'Warcraft' Movie Details

7 January 2015 2:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Duncan Jones's big-screen take on the insanely addictive Mmorpg "Warcraft" won't be out until 2016, and details so far have been fairly scarce. Maybe that's because the release date is over a year away! In any case, the "Moon" director has shared some information about the movie's plot with the Chinese news site Mtime, and it sounds pretty cool so far. Thanks much to diehard fansite ManMadeMovies for making the translation available!

Jones said, "As you may know, there has been a long history of trying to make a 'Warcraft' film, and for a number of reasons, it never quite happened. I was lucky. When I went to talk to Chris Metzen and the guys at Blizzard, we both saw things the same way. A 'Warcraft' film should not be about a good race of humans battling an evil race of orcs!

'Warcraft' Director Talks Orcs, Humans & Sequel Potential

6 January 2015 5:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, fans got their first look at Dominic Cooper as King Llane Wrynn and Robert Kazinsky as Ogrim from the highly-anticipated Warcraft, with the cast and characters revealed shortly thereafter. Sadly, though, we haven't heard anything else about this highly-anticipated video game adaptation since then, which is making the 15-month wait even longer, for some fans. Thankfully, director Duncan Jones gave his first interview about the project with the Chinese site MTime, revealing that the film opens with the Alliance humans and the Horde orcs meeting for the first time, and that the story will focus on both the humans and the orcs equally.

"When I went to talk to [producer] Chris Metzen and the guys at Blizzard, we both saw things the same way. A Warcraft film should not be about a good race of humans battling an evil race of orcs! Warcraft should be about heroes on »

Duncan Jones' Warcraft Begins With Orcs & Humans Meeting

6 January 2015 4:39 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Even though World Of Warcraft is super-popular video game series, there are a lot of people in the world that really have no clue what it is about. And because of that, Ducan Jones, the director of Warcraft movie, is going to use the first film to introduce audiences to this fantastical world by showing "the first time Orcs met Humans." Okay, but which side is going to be the good guys and which side is going to be the bad guys? "A Warcraft film should not be about a good race of humans battling an evil race of orcs! Warcraft should be about heroes on both sides trying to avoid a conflict, when villains leave them no choice," Duncan Jones tells the Chinese website Mtime.
