Domhnall Gleeson to join Leonardo DiCaprio & Tom Hardy in The Revenant

1 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Alejandro Iñárritu's Birdman starring Michael Keaton is looking fantastic, however I'm equally excited for his next project, the revenge western The Revenant. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy were previously cast in the Michael Punke adaptation, and Variety is reporting Star Wars: Episode VII's Domhnall Gleeson will join them in the upcoming film. The Revenant also stars Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, Son Of Rambow), and production on the film will »

Something To Live For Is Something To Die For In Haunting Glassland Teaser

8 July 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m not sure whether an indie thriller like Glassland will have any luck in capitalizing on actor Jack Reynor’s starring role in Transformers: Age of Extinction. The vast majority of destructo-porn addicts who sat through all three hours of Michael Bay’s latest didn’t in all likelihood leave the theater desperate to seek out Reynor’s other work. Though our critic Matt Donato claimed that the actor “makes us forget all about Shia Labeouf’s pissy Witwicky character,” there’s no use pretending Age of Extinction was in any way his show.

Still, Glassland‘s first teaser has just been released, highlighting both Reynor and star Toni Collette. And though there’s not much to go on from this look at the film, I’m liking what I see so far. Co-starring Michael Smiley and Will Poulter, the Gerard Barrett-written and directed film centers on a »

Will Poulter Goes Wild With DiCaprio In Period Revenger ‘The Revenant’

27 June 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rising star Will Poulter should ramp up his bankability as he prepares to join Leonardo DiCaprio in an adaptation of Michael Punke’s period novel The Revenant. This hard-edged and harrowing real life tale concerns a fur trader in the 1820s who is betrayed after a savage bear attack. Stranded in the Great American Wilderness with no tools or weapons, the trader naturally pursues payback. DiCaprio is a solid choice for central character Hugh Glass, though it’s unclear who Poulter will portray. The part of  Jim Bridger appears to fit the young actor, whose  encounter with Glass presumably informed the legendary path his life took to becoming “King Of The Mountain Men”. The movie’s tough credentials are cemented with the apparent involvement of Tom Hardy. Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel) will be heading out on the trail around Christmas, with Anonymous Content producing.

Poulter started out on Channel 4 »

Baftas 2014: Gravity hits the heights but 12 Years a Slave takes best film

17 February 2014 2:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

3D space disaster movie wins six awards at Royal Opera House, including best director and best British film

It was a contest between two wildly different films – a 3D space disaster movie and an unflinching portrayal of 19th-century American slavery – and on paper it was the former, Gravity, which emerged as the biggest winner at the 2014 Bafta ceremony.

It won six awards, including best director and best British film. But 12 Years a Slave unquestionably picked up the biggest prize, best film, with Chiwetel Ejiofor named as best actor.

In a year when no one film swept the board, American Hustle also came away with three prizes.

Alfonso Cuarón was named best director and said you would not know it from his accent but he considered himself a part of the British film industry. He has lived in London for 13 years and joked: "I make a very good case for curbing immigration. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2007

4 February 2014 8:21 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 6 Feb 2014 - 06:08

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2007, and another 25 overlooked gems...

For some reason, the number three was a common factor in several blockbuster movies of 2007. The third film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series (At World's End) dominated the box office, Spider-Man 3 marked Sam Raimi's last entry as director in the series, while Mike Myers went for a hat trick of hits with Shrek The Third.

I Am Legend was the third and most financially successful attempt to bring Richard Matheson's classic novel to the big screen, Rush Hour 3 marked Jackie Chan's last action pairing with Chris Tucker, while Zack Snyder's musky sword-swinger 300 was notable for having the number three in the title.

Iffy attempts at numerology aside, 2007 was also a superb for year for movies in general - particularly underappreciated ones, »

The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – January 27th 2014

27 January 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

This week’s best new releases on all the Instant Watching platforms.

Spring Breakers (2013)

Harmony Korine’s critical darling from last year is likely to be talked about and discussed for a good long while yet. Holding up an uncomfortable mirror to our youth, Spring Breakers works on a lot of levels not only does it work as a surface level tale of four out of control girls on a debauched trip in Florida but it also works as a story about the spiritual death and rebirth of Generation Y and asks some important questions about how post war culture evolved into something where our youth think licking power tools in music videos is something to aspire to.

There is a scene fairly early on where the two most rebellious of our heroines sit in class discussing oral sex on paper as their tutor drones on about world war two, »

Sundance 2014: With tons of movies sold, the lack of a mega deal was no big deal

25 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

I can testify that when you go to a film festival, and someone inquires about how the movies were that year, the answer you end up giving — “Really terrific!” “Lousy!” “They were okay!” — is often dictated by exactly one movie. If you saw something that totally knocked you out, the sort of film that you think is going to get major play in the real world, and you’re already dusting off a place on your 10 Best list for it, then that one movie can determine your entire perception of the festival. That’s what happened to me last year »

Universal & Illumination Announce Three New Films Including ‘Despicable Me 3′

16 January 2014 12:54 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment struck gold in 2010 with Despicable Me, which was both funny, sweet and managed to find a great way to sell merchandise to kids with the introduction of Minions. Since then we got a sequel and are getting a spinoff film simply called…Minions, but that isn’t the end of it as Despicable Me 3 is hitting Us cinemas on 30th June, 2017, but it’s not doing so aloneas the two companies have two other films bookending it. On 21st of December, 2016, an unnamed project by British director Garth Jennings (The Hitchiker’S Guide To The Galazy, Son Of Rambow) will hit cinemas in the States, however little is known about the project other than the fact that it is about courage, competition, and carrying a tune.

The third project will sound familiar to…well…pretty much anyone as it is another adaptation of Dr. SeussThe Grinch Who Stole Christmas. »

Dates confirmed for Despicable Me 3 and The Grinch

15 January 2014 10:37 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News 16 Jan 2014 - 06:30

Three new animated films from Illumination Entertainment are confirmed: and the minions of Despicable Me are returning again...

In a surprise to nobody, Universal has officially confirmed that Despicable Me 3 is happening. The second film, Despicable Me 2, has currently notched up $935m at the worldwide box office, and sold more than a few copies on DVD and Blu-ray too. The first spin-off from the series, The Minions Movie, is arriving in July 2015. And now we've got an official release date for Despicable Me 3 too. The movie will be arriving in cinemas on June 30th 2017.

Those aren't the only animated projects in the works at Illumination Entertainment though. For the firm is working on a previously-announced animated take on Dr Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Granted, it's been animated before, and Ron Howard made a hugely successful live action take on the book, also for Universal. »
