It marks Cahill’s second visit to Raindance after showcasing his sci-fi feature Another Earth in 2011.

Marvel may not have given us any Daredevil news at San Diego Comic-Con, but they did manage to slip one minor detail under the wire on the very last panel of the event. During Marvel’s 75th anniversary panel, which also celebrated the 50th anniversary of Daredevil, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada revealed that the series will hit Netflix in May 2015.
With Avengers: Age of Ultron arriving that very same month, I wonder if the two will connect or intertwine at all. Marvel’s meticulous with their release dates (as evidenced by the way Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. managed to tie into both Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier so snugly), so there’s a chane that they’re timing Daredevil‘s release with Age of Ultron on purpose.
Or, I could be wrong, and the two could not intersect at all. We know that the »

To close out San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel held one final panel devoted to the 75th anniversary of Marvel Comics and the 50th anniversary of Daredevil. Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada was on hand alongside writers Mark Waid and Dan Slott, and before long talked turned toward the upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix (which, to the chagrin of fans, did not have a presence during Marvel’s TV panel earlier in the week).
Quesada spoke briefly about how the series is currently filming in New York City, and revealed that it is expected to arrive in May 2015, the same month as a little Marvel film you may have heard of called Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Quesada didn’t talk in detail about the series, but did say that he was excited to see the Man Without Fear team up with the likes of Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage »

I Origins, the second feature film from writer and director Mike Cahill, tells the story of Dr. Ian Gray (Michael Pitt),tells the story about a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye, and finds himself in a struggle between science and spirituality. Recently, I sat down with director Mike Cahill and star Michael Pitt to talk about the film Check it out below!
He finds his work permeating his life after a brief encounter with an exotic young woman (Astrid Bergès- Frisbey) who slips away from him. As his research continues years later with his lab partner Karen (Brit Marling), they make a stunning scientific discovery that has far reaching implications and complicates both his scientific and spiritual beliefs. Traveling half way around the world, he risks everything he has ever known to validate his theory.
What is the impetus of the idea?

We've barely recovered from the end of 24: Live Another Day, but dammit, we still want to know if we're going to get another season of Jack Bauer goodness.
Of course, we don't know whether this Comic-Con 2014 panel - featuring the one and only Kiefer Sutherland - will give us any answers to that, but even if it doesn't, we're excited to relive all the drama from the season gone by. Join us as we bring you all the action from sunny San Diego, kicking off at 10am Pt / 1pm Et / 6pm UK...
11:00But that's a wrap - no announcement of a new season, boo. But some great juicy nuggets in there! If you'll excuse us, we're going to go and rewatch the season. Stick around on Digital Spy for more live blogs later...

Chicago – The debate between science and intelligent design (God) will go on as long as man evolves and searches for answers. A new and provocative film, “I Origins,” takes on the challenge of the debate through storytelling, and features hot actor Michael Pitt (“Boardwalk Empire”), directed by Mike Cahill (“Another Earth”).
Mike Cahill also teams again up with actress Brit Marling, who plays a research co-worker to Pitt’s main scientist character. Her last collaboration with Cahill, “Another Earth” – Marling also co-wrote the script – also investigated the concept of scientific certainly when faced with the mystery of an expansive and perplexing universe. In “I Origins,” the examination of the unique nature of the eye is explored, especially within its definition as a “window to the soul.”

Disney has announced Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will hit theaters on July 7, 2017. No other details are known though Johnny Depp is expected to star and, for the moment, Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are still attached to direct. After leaving the Ant-Man production, it looks like Edgar Wright has found his next film in Baby Driver, a crime-themed action thriller of which he will write and was first attached to back in 2008 when it was referred to as a wild spin on the action and crime genre which will be set in the Us. Nothing else is known at this time. Deadline Cameron Crowe's untitled new film starring Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper was set to hit theaters on Christmas Day, but has now been bumped to May 29, 2015. I guess Sony thinks they may have a summer hit on their hands and not much of an awards player. Nothing wrong with that. »

Marvel Studios’ and Netflix’s upcoming collection of superhero series – each one based in Hell’s Kitchen and filmed on location in New York – will vary significantly in style compared to previous Marvel projects… or, at the very least, so the folk working on the shows behind the scenes would have you believe. The first of these series is Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) as the blind, righteous, lawyer Matt Murdock – whose costumed alter ego, Daredevil, battles such criminals as the nefarious Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) on the streets of Murdock’s battered, but still standing, home turf.
Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada has said that the Daredevil series – which he also referred to as “the street level Noir side” of Marvel Studios’ larger Shared Universe (one that includes movies and small screen fare alike) – is “Marvel doing street ...

HBO has released this a new TV spot for the fifth and final season of their great series Boardwalk Empire. This is such an amazing series, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes to an end.

Whenever Steven Spielberg makes a movie, we pay attention – and when it was revealed that he’d be re-teaming with his Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal star Tom Hanks for his latest, an Untitled Cold War Thriller, we went from interested to excited. Add in that Ethan and Joel Coen penned the latest iteration of the script, working from an original draft from Matt Charman, and you’ve got the recipe for an absolutely terrific thriller. Now, Spielberg has enlisted the help of four other stars for major roles in the project.
Gone Baby Gone Oscar nominee Amy Ryan has come aboard as the wife of James Donovan (Hanks), “the CIA attorney who is thrust behind the Iron Curtain when he is sent to negotiate the release of captured American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers.” Also in talks for roles are Alan Alda (Little Miss Sunshine »

Boardwalk Empire's fifth and final season promises a reckoning. Here's the latest season five teaser...
"Baby girl, Jesus was wrong"
So says a distinctly crumpled-looking Chalky White in this latest Boardwalk Empire season five teaser. It's goodbye to crisp suits, shiny shoes and custom wet shaves in this new Depression-era season, and hello to shaggy beards and regret.
A shortened eight-episode run of Boardwalk Empire will bring Terence Winter's bootlegging drama to a close this autumn. Seven years have passed since the end of season four and the beginning of season five, taking the action all the way to 1931, when an awful lot of water has passed under the bridge for Nucky Thompson and co.
Boardwalk Empire season five starts on HBO in the Us on Sunday the 7th of September.

By the time the next film from Steven Spielberg hits theaters, it will have been nearly three years since Lincoln hit theaters. That just goes to show you how hard it is to find the right project or even get one made, regardless of whether you're an iconic filmmaker or not. But Spielberg is hard at work on getting an untitled Cold War thriller off the ground, aiming to begin shooting this fall, with Tom Hanks reuniting with the director for a fourth time. And now Deadline has a line on some supporting cast members with Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone, Win Win) and veteran actor Alan Alda both taking roles. But that's not all. More below! In addition, TV stars Billy Magnussen ("Boardwalk Empire") and Eve Hewson ("The Knick") have landed roles, joining stage star Mark Rylance as part of the supporting cast. For those who haven't been following the project, »
