"Ant-Man" Merchandise Spoils The Ending?

22 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

New merchandising tie-in photos have suggested that Marvel's upcoming "Ant-Man" film boasts a surprise twist in its final stages, one that has been rumored before at least once.

Potential "Ant-man" Spoilers Ahead

As we know from the trailers, the film will see current Ant-Man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) taking on the suited Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll). Today, photos have gone up of a Lego set for the film dubbed 'Final Battle'.

What's surprising about this isn't that both characters are a part of this set, but also that Michael Douglas' older Ant-Man Hank Pym is featured and appears to be wearing a darker version of the suit. This adds credence to those rumours that Pym turns out to be the real villain of the film.

Maybe it's just something in the toy sets and not reflective of the final film? Quite possible. Then again, leaked photos of Lego sets also »

Rumour: Matthew McConaughey wanted for Norman Osborn role in Spider-Man reboot

20 May 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey revealed that he’s “circled” several Marvel and DC scripts, suggesting that he’d be open to jumping in on the comic book movie bandwagon should the right opportunity present itself.

Well, if rumours are to be believed, Sony may have identified a role for the Interstellar star, with The Hashtag Show claiming that McConaughey is in contention to play Peter Parker’s arch-nemesis Norman Osborn in the upcoming reboot of the Spider-Man franchise.

Now, there may be nothing more to this than speculation, but assuming Norman Osborn is going to feature prominently in the reboot (and given the short shrift the character got in The Amazing Spider-Man series, it would seem highly, highly likely), then you’d have to imagine Sony will be looking at actor’s of McConaughey’s calibre to play the iconic villain alongside whichever young lead gets cast as Spider-Man. »

How the year 2012 helped redefine blockbuster movies

20 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...

The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.

Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.

The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »

Sony Classics Buys Dan Rather Scandal Movie Led by Redford and Blanchett

19 May 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

THR reports that Sony Pictures Classics has snagged North American rights to "Truth," starring Robert Redford as Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett as his producer, Mary Mapes, whose 2005 memoir "Truth and Duty" serves as the basis for this film. "Truth" centers on the firestorm that broke out in September 2004 when the former CBS Evening News anchor made libelous claims that President Bush received special treatment during his Air National Guard tenure in Vietnam. The authenticity of Rather's sources was called into question, Mapes was swiftly fired and Rather resigned in 2005. Elisabeth Moss, Topher Grace and Dennis Quaid also appear in "Truth," the directorial debut of "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "White House Down" screenwriter James VanderbiltBrad Fischer, William Sherak, Vanderbilt and Mikkel Bondesen produce with Brett Ratner, Doug Mankoff and Andy Spaulding, and Mythology Entertainment.

Time travel, indie filmmaking, and geeking out over John Rhys-Davies

15 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you had a way to see into the future, what would you do with that power? Would you use it to make money, to spark artistic inspiration, or to fix your relationship? All three happen in new indie sci-fi film “Time Lapse” when three friends discover a camera that can take photos of the future. They find the massive camera in their neighbor’s apartment, pointed directly at the living room window of their own Los Angeles bungalow apartment. Soon they figure out that “the machine,” as they call it, prints a photo at every day 8 p.m. of what’s happening 24 hours in the future. Roommate Jasper (played by George Finn) takes this opportunity to bet on dog races as the camera's Polaroids reveal the race results. Meanwhile, his painter roommate Finn (Matt O’Leary) breaks his creative block as the photos give him a peek at paintings »

14 May 2015 12:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.

"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »

What films should be expanded into shared universes?

14 May 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shared universes are big business right now, and here are seven franchises that could, and should be expanded...

It's likely that by the time you finish reading this sentence a new cinematic universe will have been born. In fact, it may be one of the cinematic universes I propose later in this article. If that's the case, I apologise for my obsolescence. Furthermore, if you're reading this in the future and any of my proposed cinematic universes have come to pass and turned out awful, I also apologise.

Just know that I'm sorry, and I've a feeling that many of us are going to be sorry and that the film industry could be in a sorry and confusing mess in five years time thanks to 'Cinematic Universe Fever' (a real affliction, and currently a very common complaint on the casebooks of doctors and private physicians in Hollywood). Right now, really »

How ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Moved From Showtime to The CW

14 May 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW’s pickup of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” — originally developed at Showtime — took everyone by surprise, but CW president Mark Pedowitz tells Variety it’s a perfect fit for his network.

“Showtime felt it wasn’t right for them, but we think we’re the right place, particularly if you push it to the comedic hour world,” he says. The show had originally been conceived as a half-hour, but will be refashioned as an hourlong. It landed the 8 p.m. Monday slot, paired with “Jane the Virgin” to create a comedy block on the night. That’s new territory for the drama-centric CW.

The creators had shopped the show around after Showtime passed on it, and Pedowitz says he was impressed by its auspices. 

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” hails from multihyphenate Rachel Bloom, “The Devil Wears Prada” writer Aline Brosh McKenna and director Marc Webb (“The Amazing Spider-Man”). Bloom stars as a woman »

Bradley Cooper Will Reprise ‘Limitless’ Role For TV Series

13 May 2015 10:22 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bradley Cooper will reprise the role of Eddie Morra from the film Limitless, for a recurring role in a new TV series based on the hit movie. Limitless, directed by Neil Burger, was a surprise hit for Cooper back in 2011, and news broke earlier this year that the movie was to be adapted for television. We all expected that Cooper wouldn’t feature, but this latest news confirms that the actor will appear in some capacity, though Jake McDorman, who starred with Cooper on American Sniper, will play the main lead, Brian Finch.

The series, like the movie, revolves around a man who discovers the mysterious drug Nzt which allows its user to unlock their brain’s full potential. The character of Finch also “has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of Nzt who has plans of his own for his new protégé, »

'Limitless' TV Show Will Have Bradley Cooper in Recurring Role

13 May 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When CBS issued a series order for Limitless last week, the network revealed some of the confirmed cast members, but, as it turns out, not all of them. During the network's upfront presentation earlier today, it was revealed that Bradley Cooper, who starred in the original 2011 Limitless movie, will reprise his role as Edward Mora, who is now a Senator. The actor will have a recurring role on the series, and while it isn't clear how many episodes he will star in, Mora will have a connection to the main character Brian Finch, played by Jake McDorman. Take a look at the official synopsis for the Limitless TV series below.

Based on the feature film, Limitless is a fast-paced drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug Nzt and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. »

Bradley Cooper To Appear In The TV Series 'Limitless' When His Schedule Allows (Or When Ratings Are Needed)

13 May 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you missed the news, Bradley Cooper's 2011 sleeper hit "Limitless" is becoming a TV series on CBS. He will also serve as executive producer on the show, and it looks like he's going to take it one step further by popping up from time to time. Variety reports that the actor "may" recur on the show playing his role Eddie Mora from the movie, pending his ever busy schedule. But let's face it, Cooper is a pretty good guy to have in your pocket if sweeps is coming up and your show needs a little ratings boost. Anyway, Jake McDorman will lead the show as the Nzt addled Brian Finch who uses his drug-enhanced special abilities to help....solve FBI cases? They turned the premise of the movie about the unlocking the massive potential of the brain into a procedural? Ugh. Anyway, Jennifer Carpenter ("Dexter") is in support. Marc Webb »

12 May 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following the success of last year’s actioner Lucy, French director Luc Besson is remaining in the science fiction wheelhouse with his next project, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

Announced today via the filmmaker’s own and new-fangled Twitter account, Besson also confirmed that the genre piece has snapped up two of the industry’s most-promising young talents in The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Dane DeHaan and model-cum-actress Cara Delevingne, who can be seen rubbing shoulders with the other members of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

The Fantastic Film

11 May 2015 10:11 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It took 20th Century Fox 14 years, but with last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, they finally delivered the movie that X-Men fans had been impatiently waiting for since 2000. Now, in 2015, Fox hopes to revive their other, more desperate, superhero franchise with this summer’s Fantastic Four. Using the same apocalyptic tones and brooding masochism made famous by Bryan Singer’s X-Men, Fox is hoping that their third go-around with the oft-troubled franchise will prove to be the charm. But, based on the failures of previous Fantastic Four films, the barrage of trailers and press releases for the new flick, and the entire history of the comic book series, Fantastic Four may inevitably be doomed from the start.

As a series, The Fantastic Four has proven to be one of Marvel’s more inconsequential title to readers, as well as one of its most inaccessible to writers. Ever since »
