So far, Wes Ball's movie of The Maze Runner has passed $250m at the worldwide box office, off a surprisingly modest budget of $34m. Based on James Dashner's series of books, it came as little surprise then when Fox ordered film number two, The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, very quickly.
In fact, it's arriving quickly too. The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is landing in cinemas next September, a year after the release of the first film.
With time hardly on their side, it's understandable that Ball and his team are sliding the cast into place at speed. As well as the returnees from the last movie, we already known that one Game Of Thrones star, Aidan Gillen, is joining the film. And now news breaks that another is signing up too. »
As I’ve said again and again, I absolutely loved John Wick. Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have crafted a fantastic action thriller that’s absolutely worth your time and money. When I recently hosted a screening in NYC, there were plenty of laughs, gasps, and tons of applause during the incredible action set pieces. In the film, Keanu Reeves stars as an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. Trust me, if you like action movies, this is a must see film. For more on John Wick, watch this trailer, see Evan shoot people in the face, and here’s all our previous coverage. Last week in New York City I sat down with Alfie Allen for an extended interview. In the film he's the reason John Wick comes out of retirement. Allen talked about how he got involved in the project, »

After being diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in early 2013, Wilko Johnson says that doctors have "cured" him. The 67-year-old was originally given just a few months to live and chose to opt out of chemotherapy. But after a massive surgery to remove a tumor this year, the actor and former Dr. Feelgood guitarist says that he no longer has cancer. "It was an 11-hour operation," he explained to BBC News at the Q Awards in London. "This tumor [was] the size of a baby. Anyway, they got it all. They cured me." The Game of Thrones actor admitted that he thought that his farewell tour last year "was going to be the last thing I ever did" before going to see »

Time for a Game of Thrones big rumor rundown. Below are eight misconceptions about the HBO hit's fifth season (and the show in general) that have been debunked to varying degrees. Disclaimer: Fans who read plenty of online Thrones coverage may already know these points as they've all been previously reported on EW.com and beyond. Who appears (or doesn't) in the season is discussed, but I'm deliberately not including any plot spoilers from the new season that have leaked, or otherwise adding anything new to the rumor mill. Still, if you wish to know absolutely nothing about season five »

Five years ago John Wick (Keanu Reeves) retired from his life as a hitman. He settled down with his wife (Bridget Moynahan) and was leading a normal life. Unfortunately, "normal" was short-lived as she succumbed to cancer leaving John on his own to grieve, or so he thought. Late one night a knock comes to his door, a delivery, a gift from the beyond. It's a small puppy with a note from his wife, a gift allowing him the opportunity not to grieve alone, or so he thought. A few nights later and John has another visitor. No knocking this time, just three guys in ski masks come to steal his car and, subsequently kill his dog. The intruders leave John bloody and beaten, laying down next to his deceased puppy, his car stolen from his garage. The bad guys got away, or so they thought... And with that the »

The site reports that the film is set in the Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji, and centers on a young American woman (Dormer) who goes in search of her missing twin sister. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,” Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead who prey on anyone who wanders the forest.
This will be director Jason Zada’s first feature length film. He has previously directed three short films, most recently Take This Lollipop (2011). The Forest is based on an original idea by David S. Goyer who wrote the screenplay for Batman Begins, Man of Steel and Batman v. »

Let my readers go... to other places. Here are a bunch of articles I enjoyed elsewhere or which are worthwhile for their informational newsiness. But come back soon, okay? Okay.
Dissolve a new Pee Wee Herman movie is "imminent"
The Guardian on Renée Zellweger and 'the Actor's face as His/Her brand'. I made a point of not talking about Zeéeeee's looks yesterday in my own post about the photo but this is an interesting non-aggressive non-misogynist piece about movie stars and how shifts to their brand work (or don't).

20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to Dash Shaw’s — the creative mind behind comedy-drama, Bottomless Belly Button — independent graphic novel Doctors, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sources tell us that David Goyer is also on board to produce the project alongside his production company, Phantom Four.
In terms of the source material itself, Doctors follows a group of doctors (who would’ve thought?) who are as tech-savvy as they are medically brilliant. One day, the medical experts find themselves in possession of a technology that allows them to temporarily assimilate their own subconscious with that of the recently deceased and bring them back to the land of the living for a short period of time. However, a spanner is tossed in the works when the titular group come across a young mother who, despite her daughter’s pleas, doesn’t want to come back.
It’s an interesting premise, »

It was only last week when Warner Bros. and DC lifted the lid on their expansive cinematic blueprint that openly confirmed a hoard of big-budget superhero films. From Suicide Squad to Wonder Woman and Shazam to Aquaman, ardent fans of the comic book series were overjoyed when the show-stopping news was first unveiled. Only, for Ray Fisher — the Broadway star who has signed on as Cyborg — the announcement was news to him as well.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 27-year old spoke candidly of his involvement in the rapidly-expanding DC universe, stating that he had no idea that Warner Bros. had planned a solo movie for his take on one Victor Stone.
“I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. »

Thanks to fan site Making Star Wars, we’ve got a pair of new set photos from Star Wars: Episode VII, which – if you squint and look very, very closely – just about shows the white blur of an Imperial Stormtrooper. Take a look at the images, followed by a scene description below…
Some images are from the lot where they seem to be dumping a lot of trees, vines and rocks which I believe must be props, the other 4 are from the area around the blue screens, the castle/megaliths/ruins…and a Stormtrooper, well, just about.
Unfortunately they’re not quite as vivid as we’d have liked, but with a bit of zooming you should definitely be able to make out the Stormtrooper. There were 4 I think in this area, running through the explosions, I think I remember another 4 or so coming from the opposite direction, but that was not all… »

Based on an idea by David S Goyer (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), the film is set in the famous Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt Fuji.
When a young woman (Dormer) arrives in search of her missing twin, she becomes prey to unquiet ghosts after straying from the forest path.
The Forest will be released on January 8, 2016. »
Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell in "Game of Thrones," has signed on for her first starring role, and it sounds awesome. Dormer and her fabulous smirk will star in "The Forest," which is about a woman who goes searching for her twin in Japan's infamous Aokigahara Forest.
Here comes the creepy part. Aokigahara Forest is also known as the Suicide Forest, and it's the one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide. According to Atlas Obscura, "Japanese spiritualists believe that the suicides committed in the forest have permeated Aokigahara's trees, generating paranormal activity and preventing many who enter from escaping the forest's depths. Complicating matters further is the common experience of compasses being rendered useless by the rich deposits of magnetic iron in the area's volcanic soil." Yikes. Naturally, our protagonist meets a whole bunch of angry ghosts in the forest during her journey.

With just under three weeks to go until its release, a new poster has arrived online for The Imitation Game, which features Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as British mathematician and World War II codebreaker Alan Turing…
See Also: Read our review of The Imitation Game here
The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing. The pioneer of modern-day computing, Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

When AMC announced they were splitting the final season of Mad Men into two seven-episodes halves, similar to what had been done with Breaking Bad in its last two years, I could only roll my eyes in disdain. The splitting of cable drama seasons is often an annoyance, and while it can work out fine with some series – The Walking Dead and its enormous fanbase seem to have adjusted just fine to the strategy over the years, in part because they’ve being doing it since the second season – it feels especially cumbersome and unnecessary when imposed upon the final years of a long-running drama that has long-since established a workable format.
It’s easy to forget that Breaking Bad seriously struggled with the half-length season format in its 2012 episodes, given how utterly brilliant the final eight hours were in 2013, but where Vince Gilligan and company had so carefully cultivated »
