Terry Gilliam is making a comeback this year. In July, the ex-Monty Python animator will reunite with his Flying Circus colleagues for an O2 residency. Before then, though, Gilliam returns to dystopian sci-fi with The Zero Theorem, a film whose patchwork aesthetic can't help but recall his 1985 masterpiece, Brazil.
Apt really, considering how prescient his visionary fable has become. Never mind the imminent World Cup. Gilliam's Brazil – a land where the authorities wield information as a weapon and where dreams are shackled by callous austerity – is even more pertinent to life in 2014.
What is Brazil? It's the story of clerk Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce), whose diligence in resolving a messy, fatal paperwork trail brings him into contact with Jill (Kim Greist) – the girl who haunts his dreams of combat with a giant baby-faced samurai, and who may or may not be a terrorist.
Where is Brazil? "Somewhere in the 20th century, »
An impressive live-action commercial has been unveiled for Sucker Punch's PlayStation 4 exclusive title "Infamous: Second Son" which hits stores on March 21st.

The Dlc essentially is a series of missions birding the gap between "inFamous 2" and "inFamous: Second Son", showing how Cole MacGrath's actions in New Marais set in motion a chain of events leading to the now forceful occupation of Seattle by the oppressive Department of Unified Protection.

It’s been four years since the film version of Watchmen disappointed everyone, but the past week has seen a sudden and rather unexpected burst of Hollywood infighting among various parties attached to the movie. Last week, Hollywood uber-producer Joel Silver revealed to ComingSoon the crazypants ending that Terry Gilliam was planning when he was attached to the movie, and also accused director Zack Snyder of being “too much of a slave to the material.”
In a new interview with the Huffington Post, Snyder hits back, accurately describing Gilliam’s ending as “completely insane” and explaining that his whole purpose »

Sucker Punch Productions are celebrating a “big day” today after revealing that upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son has gone gold. For all intents and purposes, the game is done and ready to go out to the public, although you’ll need to wait about another month or so to actually get your hands on it.
#InfamousSecondSon has gone Gold! Big day here at Spp!
Now, that doesn’t actually mean that the development process is complete. The next month will no doubt be spent building up a day one patch based around problems that they didn’t have time to fix ahead of pressing. There’ll also be a bunch of PR work to do, so expect interviews, trailers and screenshots to be coming our way. There might even be a little Dlc work going on, although I can’t »

Critics are bubbling over like Vesuvius with put-downs of the (unintentionally?) campy new action film “Pompeii.” So far the latest from critical punching-bag Paul W.S. Anderson (director of such never making the Criterion Collection films as “Alien vs. Predator” and “The Three Musketeers”), is being declared a hot mess. It currently holds a 40 percent “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. “Pompeii” stars “Game of Thrones” hunk Kit Harrington and “Sucker Punch” star Emily Browning. It carries a reported budget of $100 million and the assurance that no real volcanoes were harmed during the making of the film. Also read: ‘Pompeii’ Review: It »

That rumbling sound you hear is the angry spirit of Irwin Allen, the man behind such 1970s catastrophe-classics as “The Poseidon Adventure” and “The Towering Inferno,” but there aren’t enough sacrifice-able virgins in the world to make “Pompeii” an appeasing offering to the disaster-movie gods. This team-up between the director of “Avp: Alien vs. Predator” (Paul W.S. Anderson) and the star of “Sucker Punch” (Emily Browning) is as awful as you feared it might be, although there’s at least some camp value in watching Kiefer Sutherland froth at the mouth as a very Billy Zane–like Roman bigwig. »

Infamous: Second Son arrives in March, and here's the TV spot ahead of the launch...
The first big post-launch exclusive for the PlayStation 4 is Sucker Punch's Infamous: Second Son. The next in the super-powered series, Second Son is already being hailed as a true demonstration of next gen power, and the sandbox adventure is looking every bit the hit fans are hoping for.
The TV spot is a short, thirty second burst of the game, but it shows off some of the super powers protagonist, Delsin Rowe, can wield after absorbing them from others, beginning with ability to manipulate smoke.
Infamous: Second Son launches on PlayStation 4 on Mach 21.

It feels like, with every passing week, there is a strong chance we will receive more news on the as-yet-untitled and apparently made-on-the-fly Man of Steel sequel. What started as a simple follow-up has quickly mutated into the makings of a Justice League franchise, with Supes now joined in the ring by Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. As if that wasn’t enough, we’ll get Jesse Eisenberg portraying iconic Superman villain Lex Luthor. However it is ironed out, it will be a packed installment in a presumably long-term series. This choice of direction clearly signifies DC and Warner Bros. seeing the need to at least match the lighting in a bottle that was Marvel’s The Avengers, but also suggests another underlying qualm; a lack of faith in Superman as a lead.
The Avengers is significant on this point for a number of reasons, »

Sony Pictures has released a new TV spot for the upcoming historical disaster romance (that's a genre, right?) Pompeii, which sees Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) in a race against time to save his true love Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) from certain death at the hands of the deadly Mt. Vesuvius; check it out after the official synopsis....
It’s late summer in 79 A.D. and the city of Pompeii glitters at the foot of the mighty Mt. Vesuvius. Milo, the slave of a shipping tycoon, dreams of the day he will buy his freedom and marry his master’s daughter, Columba. What he doesn’t know is that Columba’s debt-ridden father has promised Columba to a despicable Roman Senator to pay off an overdue loan.
Milo does know that his friend, the Gladiator Nigellus, is being forced to compete the next day in a seemingly unwinnable battle in the Coliseum. »

One of the many differences between the original 1987 RoboCop and the 2014 reboot by director José Padilha is how Detective Alex Murphy’s family (wife and son) has a significantly increased role in the main plot, not only as a motivator in the development of Murphy in his internal battle of man vs. machine, but in developing the film’s other characters as well.
Opposite Joel Kinnaman’s Alex Murphy, Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch, Seven Psychopaths) plays Clara Murphy in the new take on RoboCop, and Melissa Molina had the opportunity to speak with her about her role and castmates on behalf of Screen Rant.
I’m sure that when you were younger, you didn’t really imagine that in the future you would be making out with RoboCop.
Abbie Cornish: When I was younger, I never really imagined that I would ever be an actor.
Really? Was there »

Browning is known for her action-packed role in "Sucker Punch" and had trained intensively for that film, but she didn't have much to bother about when it came to her diet during the shooting of "Pompeii".
"The guys on set ate only like Kale and Chicken, and that's all...and it's funny because it's so often that it's the actresses on the set of a film that are watching what they eat, but on this we're all like, we couldn't care less," Browning said in a statement.

Set in 79 A.D., Pompeii tells the heroic story of Milo (Kit Harington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love, Cassia (Emily Browning), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator.

No black humor. No satire. No point. But hey, check out the 1987 catchphrases dropped in at random! I’m “biast” (pro): love the original…
I’m “biast” (con): …but saw little point in remaking it
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
I was not feeling optimistic about any reboot or remake of Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop, which is still brutally relevant 27 years on. Could anyone find a good reason to update this flick when the original still has the power to shock us today? And then this new RoboCop opens in “sunny Tehran,” where “random patrols” by Ed-209s, unmanned walking tactical tanks, and Em-208s, android soldiers, keep the peace as part of the U.S.’s “Operation Freedom Tehran,” which makes the good people of the city feel safe and secure, we’re informed by a blowhard conservative TV host gleefully sharing this »
