We're almost at the end of 2014, which means we're long overdue when it comes to marketing the movies of summer 2015. Today, Warner Bros. has released the first Pan images along with what's sure to be the first of 197 character posters. The film "tells the untold story of how a young orphan boy from London is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds great adventures that shape him into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan." These images show us not only Levi Miller as Pan, but also Hugh Jackman as the villainous Blackbeard, and um…well…yeah. None of these images are too encouraging, but I have faith in director Joe Wright. While he does have a tendency to go overboard in his staging and visuals, his past work promises we're not going to get a run-of-the-mill Peter Pan story even though I was never all that »

Sam Mendes' Skyfall featured many international locations. Some scenes were shot in Macau, Turkey, and China. For his next Bond film, Mendes and his production crew are headed to Rome, Italy. According to the Italian news agency Ansa, Bond 24 will require "three key action scenes" to be filmed in Rome. Details are below. Several night-time high-speed car chases are planned through the historical center’s narrow, winding streets, as well as on main thoroughfare Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, with one car ending up in the Tibur river, it reported. Another high-speed car chase will reportedly result in an iconic Fiat 500 getting crushed in Borgo Vittorio, near the Vatican. And perhaps most memorably, Bond will parachute from a helicopter onto Ponte Sisto, a 15th century pedestrian bridge that connects Trastevere to the center, Ansa said. There will also be scenes filmed at the Royal Palace of Caserta ("Versailles of Italy") in Campania, »
The 24th installment of the James Bond franchise, set to start shooting at Pinewood Shepperton outside of London in the coming weeks, will film some scenes in Rome.

While details are still under wraps, a source confirmed that shooting was planned for Rome. Italian news agency Ansa reported that Rome will host no less than three key action scenes for the upcoming film. Several nighttime high-speed car chases are planned

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, »

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 »

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, »

Ahead of its arrival next month, Netflix has released a new trailer for the original series Marco Polo, which stars newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy, is based on the famed explorer’s adventures in Kublai Khan’s court in 13th century China – a world replete with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue and rivalry.
Created by john Fusco, screenwriter of the Academy Award nominated feature Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, Marco Polo also stars Benedict Wong (Prometheus), Joan Chen (Twin Peaks), Chin Han (Arrow, The Dark Knight), Zhu Zhu (Cloud Atlas), Olivia Cheng (The Flash, Broken Trail), Claudia Kim (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Mahesh Jadu (Neighbours), Tom Wu (Skyfall), Remy Hii (Treading Water), Uli Latukefu (Devil’s Playground) and Rick Yune (Olympus Has Fallen, The Fast and the Furious).

Marco Polo will land on Netflix on December 12th.

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. Check out the new Marco Polo trailer after the jump. The series stars Lorenzo Richelmy, Benedict Wong, Joan Chen, Chin Han, Zhu Zhu, »

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 »

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.

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 »

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. »
Javier Bardem played a very memorable villain in the last James Bond film "Skyfall," and now comes word that director Sam Mendes has found the actor to play the villain in the next installment. According to The Daily Mail, Mendes has cast Christoph Waltz as the main antagonist. The actor previously played the villain in "Inglourious Basterds" and will play the main bad guy in "Horrible Bosses 2." "James Bond 24" also stars Daniel Craig, Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Dave Bautista. It's set to hit theaters on November 6th, 2016. »
