21 November 2014 12:52 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Snags Brenton Thwaites, Possibly Javier Bardem

21 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Just like Jack Sparrow's liver, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise takes a licking and keeps on ticking. The cast is slowly coming together for the fifth movie in the series, and its latest addition seems to be Brenton Thwaites. The young Aussie actor ("The Giver," "Maleficent," the upcoming "Son of a Gun") is reportedly in talks to join the cast as a British soldier named Henry. If he signs on the dotted line, he'll be joining Johnny Depp as Sparrow - or is it Sparrow as Johnny Depp? It's hard to tell the difference any more, what with all the accessories and drunken hijinks.

We're way more excited for the rumor Javier Bardem will join the gang as the villain of the movie, a vengeful ghost named Captain Brand. Bardem is no stranger to creepy characters; he won an Oscar for his performance as Anton Chigurh in "No Country for Old Men, »

Not Dead Yet: Bond 24 and Twin Peaks Season 3 Will Be Shot on Film

20 November 2014 2:56 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The number of wide releases this year that were shot on film amounts to but a handful, and despite heavy advocacy from filmmakers like Christopher Nolan and J.J. Abrams, the format has become an outlier in contrast to the near-universal use of digital.  Digital is not inherently a bad format, and some filmmakers like David Fincher are able to take full advantage of the opportunities it provides, but the fear is that the choice over whether a director can shoot on film or digital may be disappearing.  That could very well be the case in the near future, but today some relief arrived in the form of news that two highly anticipated upcoming projects will be shooting on film, keeping the format alive for a bit longer: Bond 24 and the new season of Twin Peaks.  More after the jump. We’ll start with Bond 24, which marks a curious »

New UK sci-fi and fantasy shows to look out for in 2015

20 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Androids, magic, parallel worlds, ghostly crime, and the apocalypse. Here’s a raft of new forthcoming UK sci-fi and fantasy TV…

The superhero genre may be taking up residence in cinemas for the foreseeable, and Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead are leading Us TV's genre output, but what can fans of UK sci-fi and fantasy look forward to seeing on television over the next year?

There’s Doctor Who of course, which appears to be in rude health and going nowhere, a Christmas Special from Black Mirror, and a hint of new Red Dwarf on its way. (And of course, if there’s anything like justice in the world, the terrific In The Flesh will be recommissioned for a third series.)

If though, you’re thirsting for something new, 2015 is promising to deliver a handful of geek TV gems. We’ve scoured the new UK commission announcements for anything spooky, »

Sally Woodward Gentle, who will co-executive produce the series, said: "I set up Sid Gentle Films so that I could work on projects I felt truly passionate about with some of the best creative talent in the industry.

19 November 2014 10:52 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Anthony Hopkins are to appear in BBC Two's adaptation of Ronald Harwood's play The Dresser.

Hopkins will play an ill actor, whose dresser (McKellen) supports him and his theatre company during the Second World War.

As well as The Dresser, head of BBC drama Ben Stephenson has announced the commission of an adaptation of the Len Deighton thriller SS-gb, for which Skyfall writers Robert Wade and Neal Purvis will provide the script.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that McKellen will join the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Danny DeVito in lending their voices to Animal Crackers.

Hopkins's drama Go with Me recently added Julia Stiles and Ray Liotta to its cast. »

Full-Length Trailer for New Netflix Series Marco Polo Is Light on Pooltime Horseplay

17 November 2014 1:50 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Netflix has unveiled the full-length Marco Polo trailer after the first teaser debuted online a few weeks ago.  The new original series follows the titular explorer’s adventures throughout the 13th century in the court of Kublai Khan, the ruler of the Mongol Empire.  Acting as the ruler’s spy, ambassador, and explorer, Marco treks across the Far East, resulting in a story filled with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue, and rivalry.  While this trailer once again teases the massive scope and gorgeous landscapes of the show (Kon-Tiki and Pirates 5 helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg directed the first two episodes), there are some more character-centric shots that are less impressive.  Regardless, I’m curious to see if Netflix’s first “large-scale period epic” original series is a success.

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt And Jack O’Connell At Unbroken Sydney, Australia World Premiere

17 November 2014 1:22 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The final, and yet-to-be-seen, film of the awards season had its world premiere in Sydney, Australia on Monday. Director Angelina Jolie and husband Brad Pitt walked the red carpet for Best Picture hopeful Unbroken, along with stars Jack O’Connell and Miyavi, to greet fans, sign autographs and take photos.

The epic drama follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.

Variety writes: “Reaction to the often-intense film was largely positive, with the black-tie audience gasping audibly at one particularly shocking maritime moment and the unrelenting visceral wartime brutality that punctuates Zamperini’s tale of survival. Warm applause at the end of the film drowned out the opening »

Inside the Savage Fight Scenes of ‘Penny Dreadful’ Season 1 (Exclusive)

17 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first season of Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” explored some of horror fiction’s most famous figures, spinning a provocative yarn that weaved vampires, werewolves and demons into the more recognizable stories of Dorian Gray and Victor Frankenstein for a gripping and gruesome monster mash-up. While viewers may have been lured by the chance to see such iconic characters inhabiting the same screen, they stayed for the powerhouse performances from the likes of Eva Green (who played Vanessa Ives, a character original to the series) and the lavish production values, which faithfully recreated the claustrophobic streets of Victorian London and staged some impressive set pieces, from grand theater productions to an elaborate fight scene between our heroes and a vampiric horde.

When dealing with battles between supernatural creatures, viewers have high expectations, so creator John Logan turned to stunt coordinator Pete Miles, whom he had worked with on “Skyfall.”

Christoph Waltz To Expect Mister Bond In 2015?

15 November 2014 1:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Javier Bardem’s turn as a Bond villain in Skyfall was icier than a naked Twister party in an igloo. How do you follow that performance? By casting diminutive screen psychopath Christoph Waltz of course, if recent reports are anything to go by. Variety have acquired this story from the Twitter feed of Daily Mail foghorner Baz Bamigboye, so while we can take it with a mini-avalanche of salt, we can at least comment on it as a plausible decision. Waltz fits the Daniel Craig era formula of recent years of casting a sinister European as adversary. If you haven’t seen him before, I’d describe him as a sort of sinister cousin of Jools Holland.  I doubt anyone would object if his involvement was confirmed.

Bamigboye has also Tweeted the locations for Bond 24 as Mexico, Morocco, Austria, Italy and London, so as ever Eon Productions will be »

Christoph Waltz May Be the Next Bond Villain

14 November 2014 8:28 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In news that makes total sense, Christoph Waltz has reportedly signed on to be the villain in the next James Bond movie. A columnist for The Daily Mail tweeted the news, also saying that the movie will begin shooting in early December in Morocco, Austria, Italy, London, and Mexico. If this is true, it's the best news ever. As proven by Inglourious Basterds, Waltz can be both terrifying and creepily charming. Daniel Craig is set to reprise his role, and Sam Mendes (Skyfall) is directing. The only question left is whether Waltz will be more of a Dr. No or an Elliot Carver. »

Is Christoph Waltz the New James Bond Villain?

14 November 2014 2:38 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, it looks like the still-untitled Bond 24 has found its villain. According to Daily Mail columnist (and caps lock enthusiast) Baz Bamigboye, the two-time Academy Award-winning actor has signed on for the new James Bond adventure, to once again star Daniel Craig (working for his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes). According to Bamigboye, the shoot starts in early December and shooting locations include Morocco, Austria, Italy, London and Mexico.

Even though this is still very much speculation, if it is true, it's pretty perfect, huh? Waltz oozes charm and sophistication and can turn on the malevolence pretty high if he wants to (like in his first Oscar-winning role in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," as the evil Nazi "Jew Hunter"). He is going to be a great Bond bad guy.

James Bond 24: Christoph Waltz set to be villain

13 November 2014 11:10 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The next James Bond film will see Daniel Craig going head to head with Christoph Waltz. Good luck, 007...

Production on the new James Bond film is still set to begin before the end of the year. We know that Daniel Craig is back to reprise the role of 007, and that he'll be reuniting with Skyfall director Sam Mendes for the new movie.

Also returning? Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris are reprising their Skyfall roles. New additions to the cast include Dave Bautista (off the back of his Guardians Of The Galaxy success) and Lea Seydoux.

And now we learn that another familiar face is jumping aboard. Christoph Waltz is set to be the latest James Bond nemesis. He's set to take the role that at one stage was earmarked for Chiwetel Ejiofor. The news was broken by Daily Mail reporter Baz Bamingboye, whose Bond information to date has been very good. »

Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye reports that Christoph Waltz has signed on to the 24th James Bond film. Chiwetel Ejiofor has been long rumored as the main villain, with Dave Bautista as an Oddjob-type henchman. I imagine Waltz has taken the role of the lead villain.
