'Thor' Star Tom Hiddleston Wanted for the Lead in 'Ben-Hur'

12 August 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tom Hiddleston is reportedly the top choice for MGM, Paramount Pictures and director Timur Bekmambetov to star in their Ben-Hur remake as the title character.

While it isn't known if an official offer has been extended to the actor yet, Tom Hiddleston is reportedly mulling over other projects such as MGM's Me Before You.

We first reported on the project back in January 2013, when MGM picked up the spec screenplay by Keith R. Clarke (The Way Back) after the studio emerged from its bankruptcy troubles with hits such as Skyfall and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The script is reportedly much more faithful to the 1880 novel by Lew Wallace, which is currently in the public domain, centering on the early years of Judah Ben-Hur and Messalla, who were best friends as children before the Roman Empire conquered Jerusalem. After Messalla leaves for five years to be educated, he mocks his former friend's religion, »

Into the Storm - The Cast and Crew Speak!

6 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Last year in Oklahoma a famous father-and-son team of storm chasers were heard screaming, “We’re going to die! We’re going to die!” on a Highway Patrol radio moments before they were indeed killed by one of the savage twisters they’d devoted their lives to following.

Storm chasers are single-minded in their pursuit of danger, willing to risk all for the thrill of the hunt, and in the new movie Into the Storm, Matt Walsh plays just such a character. He’s Pete, a TV reality star who endangers his crew when one of the biggest storms of all time hits the rural town of Silverton.

While the subject matter is serious, behind the scenes Walsh was dealing with a comedy of errors he couldn’t help but laugh at. In the film his fortress on wheels is Titus, a storm-proof tank that can roll its way through anything. »

Alice In Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass Kicks Off Production

4 August 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, the sequel to Disney’s massively successful, if narratively weak, Alice in Wonderland is starting to roll cameras, with James Bobin replacing Tim Burton in the director’s chair. It took a suprisingly long time for this next chapter of the planned franchise to get off the ground, considering the first film broke $1 billion at the box office, but a press release indicates that filming is now underway.

Officially titled Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up finds the original actors returning to their roles, with a bevy of new stars joining both the live-action and voice casts. What the sequel is exactly about is still foggy, but the story is said to “revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time.”

Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass Officially Starts Production

4 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney met with some success in their live-action version of Alice in Wonderland (with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter), and since the film released, talk of a sequel has been on-going.  Now, it's finally moved into production as the cast and crew have gathered together in anticipation of it's May 2016 release.  Disney announced cameras have started rolling with a new cast list confirming both old and new members of the cast coming to the production.  

I wasn't all that thrilled with Alice in Wonderland when it released.  Not that it was a bad movie, I just didn't find it all that special or great.  So it's tough to muster up much enthusiasm for this sequel, despite the impressive cast coming back for it.  From the press release:

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

4 August 2014 5:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach believes Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Andy Serkis portrays Caesar, who in my opinion is one of the most human characters I have seen on screen to date. Despite this being a man playing an ape through motion capture, it does not take away the raw talent that Andy Serkis has as an actor. Just because CGI is used to create a different appearance does not change the fact that Serkis acted out all of these scenes.

Andy Serkis is best known for his roles in the The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey as Gollum. He has gone on to play Kong in King Kong, Captain Haddock in The Adventures of Tintin and obviously Ceaser in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. »

Andy Serkis’ ‘Jungle Book: Origins’ Set for October 2016, A Year After Disney’s ‘Jungle Book’

1 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has dated its live-action version of “Jungle Book: Origins” for Oct. 21, 2016 — a year and a week after Disney’s rival project opens.

Serkis will also produce with “Harry Potter” scribe Steve Kloves and with Jonathan Cavendish, Serkis’ partner at his London-based production company The Imaginarium. Callie Kloves wrote the adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling stories about a young boy raised by wolves.

Disney’s own “Jungle Book” opens Oct. 9, 2015, with Jon Favreau directing and Idris Elba voicing the tiger, Shere Khan. Kipling’s original stories were published in 1894 and are in the public domain.

Disney recently cast newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli in “The Jungle Book.”

Warner Bros. has not yet started casting for its “Jungle Book: Origins.” It is the first feature directing gig for Serkis — although the actor was a second unit director on Peter Jackson’s two “Hobbit” movies, including the barrel chase »

Jackson On More "Smaug," "Dam Busters" Remake

29 July 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

If there was a surprise about "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" extended edition, it's the fact that it wasn't really that extended - the film scoring only an additional 13 minutes on top of its theatrical 169 minute runtime for a total of 182 minutes.

That quotient is being upped for the sequel. Filmmaker Peter Jackson confirmed at Comic Con that the upcoming "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" will clock in with around 25 minutes of extra footage. He tells Deadline:

"The Smaug movie, we've got 25 or 26 minutes of pretty good stuff for that DVD. The first one, there wasn't that much we left on the cutting room floor and it wasn't earth shattering. But this is worthwhile stuff that you haven't seen before."

'Smaug' has a 161 minute runtime, meaning the additions will bring it up to a 186 minute film.

With his work on the final "The Hobbit" drawing to a close, Jackson »

Peter Jackson May Add 25 Minutes To ‘The Hobbit 2’ On DVD, Still Hopes To Make ‘The Dam Busters’

29 July 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

I can hear the groans now. It’s kind of amazing the narrative change on Peter Jackson and his expanded “The Lord Of The Rings” hexalogy. The first trilogy, people loved and couldn’t get enough, clamoring for those extended edition DVDs, with more and more footage making for running times that were over three hours for each film. But cut to his new, not-as-well-received ‘Hobbit’ trilogy, and there’s a lot of bemoaning about the similar running times of these movies, in most social spheres. Well, perhaps that means run in the opposite direction unless you’re a hardcore ‘Hobbit’ fan, as Jackson says there’s about 25 minutes of extra footage that will probably be added to the DVD/Blu-ray version of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” But if you’re looking for an expanded “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” DVD, you’re probably out of luck. “The Smaug movie, »

Stephen Colbert delivered a hilarious, heartwarming speech about his relationship with J.R.R. Tolkien's masterworks of Middle-earth and Peter Jackson's film adaptations of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit at Comic-Con this weekend. In classic Colbert fashion, he did it dressed as the Laketown Spy, his memorable, landmark cameo from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, bringing out his similarly dressed son to complete the adorable bit ahead of a panel on The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening Of Into The Storm In St. Louis

28 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From New Line Cinema, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, comes the tornado disaster film Into The Storm. Steven Quale (“Final Destination 5”) directs the film, which is produced by Todd Garner (“Zookeeper,” “Knight and Day”).

In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.

Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, Into The Storm throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.

The film stars Richard Armitage (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug »

Daniel Radcliffe won’t have a cameo in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

24 July 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Daniel Radcliffe has been slowly working his arse off to leave the iconic role of Harry Potter behind him over the last few years, and though he’s done that with relative success, he’ll never truly escape the role. The epic Harry Potter story came to a conclusion with 2011′s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, but the franchise is getting an exciting resurgence in the form of a prequel spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. 

Ever since Fantastic Beasts was announced, fans have wondered if Radcliffe would reprise his role. Yes, the film takes place about seventy years before Harry’s beloved adventures, but as seen with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘s Elijah Wood cameo, anything is possible.

We Got This Covered interviewed Radcliffe about his new film What If, and asked if there was a possibility of him showing up in Fantastic Beasts. »
