Directors for Godzilla 2016 announced

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was surprising news to most people when Toho announced that they will be producing their first home-grown Godzilla movie in over a decade, following the success of the Us-produced Gareth Edwards movie. And now we have our directors. Not only that, but we also have the first official image:

Toho have announced that Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi will direct Godzilla 2016, which is set for release (amazingly enough) in 2016. This will be two years before Gareth Edwards returns for Godzilla 2 and is the first Japanese-produced Godzilla movie since 2004’s disappointing Godzilla: Final Wars, which only managed to pull in $12 million upon release.

This also marks the first time two separate Godzilla franchises will be running concurrently.

The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver on head games and super speed in 'Ultron'

30 March 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The two biggest additions to the "Avengers" ensemble in next month's "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" are Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. They play a key role in the mega-sequel, and they manage to create some interesting tensions for both the heroes and the villains in the film. Olsen was the first to sit down with us on the set, and we jumped right in, having already heard a number of things about her character from the rest of the cast. Can you talk about your Eastern European accent? (looking at the Marvel producers) Can I talk about it? We know that we're from Eastern Europe, so, okay, so, yeah, it’s something that we got to create. It's a make believe place, so it's something that Aaron and I, with the dialect coach, kind of created together.   What's the name of the fake country? That I can't talk about, but it's, »

Meet Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver in The Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette

30 March 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Two brand new actors are joining the ranks of the Avengers in the upcoming Age of Ultron.  Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen team up with Robert Downey Jr. and co. as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the new superhero film from Joss Whedon.

The characters are twins whose skills and personality complement one another, adding a new layer to the established Avengers team.  Taylor-Johnson is no stranger to playing the hero.  The actor starred as the titular Kick-Ass in both Kick-Ass movies, and of course, appeared briefly in an uncredited scene as his Quicksilver character next to Olsen’s Scarlet Witch in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  The film will be Olsen’s first outing as a superhero since the actress’ filmography typically skews indie however she and Taylor-Johnson both shared screen time in last summer’s blockbuster Godzilla.

Elizabeth Olsen Relied on 'Weird Dance Moves' to Bring Scarlet Witch to Life

30 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What's so fun about talking to someone like Elizabeth Olsen about something as huge and important as "Avengers: Age of Ultron," is that it's clear she's not used to not be able to talk about stuff. The star, who famously starred in "Godzilla" last summer, which had an air of mystery but nothing like the behind-several-locked-doors secrecy of a Marvel movie, seemed genuinely befuddled, as the tried answering question after dweeby question without spoiling anything or getting herself (or others) in trouble. It was one of the more endearing qualities of a movie star made almost exclusively of endearing qualities.

In "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Olsen plays Scarlet Witch, a character more closely associated with the X-Men, but clearly a big part of Avengers lore as well. Her human name is Wanda Maximoff, the twin sister of Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver (played in the film by Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Instead of having powers involving punching, »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Star Aaron Taylor-Johnson Doesn't Feel 'Threatened' by the Other Quicksilver

30 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Joining a team as closely knit and unforgettable as "The Avengers" has got to be something of a challenge, even for an actor like Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who has gamely appeared in "Kick-Ass" (and its follow-up) and last year's mega-successful "Godzilla" reboot. "Avengers: Age of Ultron," after all, is the sequel to the most successful superhero movie of all time, and one that stars a chummy group that includes Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner.

Add to that the additional pressure of playing Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, a super speedy Marvel character that audiences had just been introduced to the previous summer in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and it sounds like a pretty daunting proposition. (He'll appear alongside his "Godzilla" co-star Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Quicksilver's twin sister, Scarlet Witch, as the two new kids on the block.) Not »

If you feel that the (nearly) three year wait for Godzilla 2 in 2018 is too much to handle, Idw is coming to the rescue.

Ben Mendelsohn Rumored For Star Wars: Rogue One

26 March 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After stunning Netflix subscribers worldwide with his powerhouse turn in the first season of star-studded drama Bloodline, Aussie actor Ben Mendelsohn certainly appears to be on the rise. And now, after a career of strong supporting performances, he could be about to get his big break: Deadline reports that he may be joining the cast of Star Wars: Rogue One.

Details on the first Star Wars spinoff, which will be directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards and boasts a script by Chris Weitz (Cinderella) and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli), are pretty sparse. Oscar nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) has bagged the lead role, but rumors suggesting that the pic will be a heist movie revolving around bounty hunters who steal blueprints for a Death Star are still unconfirmed.

Regardless, it’s exciting to hear that Mendelsohn is on the cusp of landing a major studio role like this. »

Star Wars: Rogue One - Ben Mendelsohn to star?

26 March 2015 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Reports suggest that Ben Mendelsohn could be set to star in the 2016 Star Wars spin-off, Rogue One...

Anticipation surrounding the imminent slate of new Star Wars films is such that, even though The Force Awakens is still months away, excitement is already building for the 2016 spin-off Rogue One.

The latest rumour, courtesy of Hollywood outlet Deadline, is that Ben Mendelsohn is "circling" a lead role in Rogue One.

As anyone who's familiar with Mendelsohn's earlier work will tell you, this is potentially good news; he put in a terrifying performance in the Australian drama-thriller Animal Kingdom, played a jaded thief alongside Ryan Gosling in The Place Beyond The Pines, and was wonderfully camp in Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods And Kings. He's certainly come a long way since his early days in Aussie soap, Neighbours.

If true, Mendelsohn could be starring alongside Felicity Jones, who was recently confirmed as one of Rogue One's leads. »

Ben Mendelsohn wanted for Star Wars: Rogue One

26 March 2015 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises, Starred Up) is wanted for a lead role in Star Wars: Rogue One, the upcoming spin-off movie from Disney and Lucasfilm.

Given the secrecy surrounding all things Star Wars, there’s no detail on a potential character for Mendelsohn, but should he sign on for the project he would join female lead Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) in the film.

Star Wars: Rogue One is being directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), and is set for release on December 16th 2016.

Ben Mendelsohn Circling 'Star Wars' Spinoff 'Rogue One'

25 March 2015 9:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

When it was announced, the only thing we really knew about the cast and crew of the first of several forthcoming Star Wars spinoffs was that Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) would be in the director's chair. But in the last couple months, the film -- which recently received a title, Rogue One -- has founds its female lead in Felicity Jones, a composer in Alexandre Desplat, and now it appears the spinoff has found its male lead in Ben Mendelsohn. Mendelsohn's filmography is filled mostly with supporting credits, including a solid trio of films over the last few years in The Dark Knight Rises, Killing Them Softly, and The Place Beyond the Pines. The latter of those three includes solid acting all-round, including Mendelsohn, and I'm interested to see what he brings to a starring role in a Star Wars film considering I don't know his work with a ton of familiarity. »

From Animal Kingdom to Starred Up, The Dark Knight Rises and Netflix's latest binger Bloodline, Mendelsohn has been gaining great ground on the international stage these past few years.

'Star Wars' Spinoff 'Rogue One' Wants Ben Mendelsohn?

25 March 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just two weeks after Disney confirmed that actress Felicity Jones is the first cast member in their Star Wars spinoff entitled Rogue One, a new casting addition may have entered the fray. Deadline reports that Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn, who currently stars on the Netflix series Bloodline, is circling a lead role in Rogue One. Naturally, no character details were given and Disney would not confirm nor deny the casting.

No plot details have been revealed, but there have been a slew of rumors regarding the plot. It is rumored that the story follows a group of bounty hunters or pirates trying to steal the plans for the first Death Star. There have also been reports that Harrison Ford's Han Solo may be involved in the story, but that has not been confirmed either. With Star Wars Celebration coming up next month in Anaheim, it's possible that Disney and »

Ben Mendelsohn Rumored For A Role In ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’

25 March 2015 5:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

How much do we know about “Star Wars: Rogue One”? Well, not that much, and none of the rumors have been confirmed. We know it’s a “Star Wars” spin-off film, we know “Godzilla” director Gareth Edwards is helming, Felicity Jones (“Theory Of Everything”) stars and Chris Weitz ("Twilight: New Moon") and Gary Whitta have the main writing credits. Everything else — rumors of a bounty hunter movie centered around stealing plans to build the Death Star — are pretty much just conjecture at this point. But Deadline brings an interesting casting bit to light tonight. Ben Mendelsohn might be joining the cast. That’s all they got, but it’s intriguing because Ben Mendelsohn makes everything better. That should be a Hollywood axiom and while it’s not quite yet, in the circles of some of our greatest working filmmakers and actors it is. Mendelsohn’s been tapped by Christopher Nolan »

Ben Mendelsohn Circling Star Wars Spinoff Rogue One

25 March 2015 5:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even if the films turn out to be terrible, it’s impossible to deny that Lucasfilm has been knocking it out of the park in terms of casting their Star Wars movies. Of course it helps when you have a property that everyone wants to be a part of, but the eclectic ensemble of Star Wars: The Force Awakens—with Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega and more set to occupy the same screen—is downright brilliant. Then the next Star Wars movie, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ spinoff Rogue One, started off on the right foot by casting Felicity Jones as the lead, and now it looks like the studio will continue its run with word that the phenomenal Ben Mendelsohn is mulling over joining Jones in the Rogue One cast. The folks at Deadline report that the Australian Animal Kingdom actor is “circling »

Tdkr's Ben Mendelsohn Circles Role In Star Wars: Rogue One

25 March 2015 5:17 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We may not have any plot details for Godzilla director Gareth Edwards' Star Wars: Rogue One yet, but it looks like we might be able to add another cast member to the mysterious spin-off flick. Word is Ben Mendelsohn (currently stealing the show in Netflix's Bloodline) is being lined up for a major role next to The Theory Of Everything's Felicity Jones, who will apparently play the lead. The news was first reported by Deadline, with THR and The Wrap chiming in so while nothing is set in stone, a deal may not be far away. Obviously there's no mention of the character he would play (Star Wars stuff is kept secret 'round these parts don't cha know?), but I think it's safe to say that no matter what the role, Mendelsohn would knock it out of the galaxy, far far away (sorry). »

Felicity Jones says Stars Wars role is 'really exciting'

25 March 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Felicity Jones laughs and says "absolutely" when asked if she's coming up with various ways to say she can't talk about her starring role in the Star Wars spin-off Rogue One.

"I can't talk about it. It's really, really exciting but I can't talk about it," she said in a recent interview.

The film was confirmed by Disney's Bob Iger at a shareholders meeting in San Francisco earlier this month.Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) will begin directing this summer. The movie is scheduled for a Dec. 16, 2016, release.

Jones, 31, said she has had "a fantastic, fantastic few months." She was nominated for a best-actress Oscar for her role as Jane Hawking in The Theory of Everything, and she says all the women nominated in that category supported each other.

"It felt very uncompetitive which was really nice," she said. "It felt like we were all supporting each other." (Julianne Moore won for Still Alice. »
