Cast of Joe Wright's Peter Pan Film Fills Out as Production Begins

41 minutes ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. announced the start of production on Joe Wright's Pan, a film said to be an origin story and darker take on J.M. Barrie's beloved character Peter Pan, and with it comes a list of the entire cast. Previous announced cast members include Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (Inside Llewyn Davis) as Hook; Rooney Mara (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) as Tiger Lily; Adeel Akhtar (The Dictator) as Smee; and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter. The casting of Mara as Tiger Lilly gained a certain amount of scrutiny, but it would appear the rest of Wright's cast has been filled in with a rather eclectic group of actors, including Australian Aboriginal actor Jack Charles (pictured) playing Tiger Lily's father known as The Chief. Other members include Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables) as Mary; Taejoo Na (The Kick) as Kwahu; Kurt Egyiawan (Skyfall) as Murray; Lewis MacDougall »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Dark Knight'

1 hour ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There’s before The Dark Knight, and there’s after The Dark Knight. Before The Dark Knight, superhero movies were big for Hollywood and Christopher Nolan was a culty stylist and everyone loved Batman. After The Dark Knight, superhero movies were the defining Hollywood product and Christopher Nolan was everyone’s favorite Hollywood director and everyone really loved Batman.

You can try to explain The Dark Knight’s success by looking at the underlying factors of where we were at at the time — “we” as a nation, “we” as a global moviegoing public, “we” as a geekifying popular culture. A brutal election year faced America. »

Get Ready for Showtime's Supernatural Chiller 'Penny Dreadful' with Creepy New Trailer (Review)

21 April 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

One of the more inspired aspects of this year’s SXSW was the newly added Episodic program, a showcase previewing yet-to-debut TV series. Episodic original content has clearly been undergoing a revolution. Indeed, the conversations surrounding small-screen content often eclipse what’s being said about big-screen fare. While, say, Jane Campion’s “Top of the Lake” and Sean Durkin’s “Southcliffe” debuted as one-offs in the festival world, expect this new sort of collective programming to catch on -- and fast -- at other major fests.I took a break from scouring the admittedly underwhelming narrative competition film program to check out the first hour-long installment of Showtime’s supernatural period chiller “Penny Dreadful,” starring Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and former 007 Timothy Dalton.  (Watch a new trailer for the series, which hits Showtime May 11, below.)Executive produced by Sam Mendes, all eight episodes are written by “Skyfall” scribe John Logan. »

The First 'Jersey Boys' Trailer Will Have You Tapping Your Toes (Video)

18 April 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

One of the major X-factors of the summer movie season has been Clint Eastwood's adaptation of the smash Broadway musical "Jersey Boys." The true life tale of Frankie Valli and the formation of his influential pop band the Four Seasons. For a while it looked like the movie would open up at Christmas, joining the Broadway musical thunder-dome that currently includes big budget cinematic revamps of "Into the Woods" and "Annie." But then the reality set in: Eastwood is a grumpy old director who never does two takes and ends each shooting day before lunch. "Jersey Boys" suddenly became a summer movie... and the first trailer has just debuted. And it's really, really good.

Instead of relying on movie stars, Eastwood corralled a bunch of young actors who had starred in various stage productions of the show, so John Lloyd Young stars as Frankie Valli, Erich Bergen is Bob Gaudio, »

Watch: First Trailer For Clint Eastwood's Musical 'Jersey Boys' Aims For The High Notes

17 April 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Music has always been a big part of Clint Eastwood's career, with the filmmaker also serving as composer and songwriter for a strong handful of his films, yet he's never actually made a musical. Outside of the biopic "Bird" and an episode of the PBS series "The Blues," Eastwood has never really had the chance to dig elbows deep into movie with wall-to-wall music, but now the director who seems to have done it all, will cross the genre off his bucket list. The first trailer for "Jersey Boys" is here, bringing all the songs of the hit Broadway show to the big screen. Starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda and Christopher Walken, and penned by John Logan ("Hugo," "Skyfall"), the films will tell the tale of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, documenting the rise and fall of the successful rock 'n' roll group of the 1960s, »

Pierce Brosnan Doesn’t Think That He Was A Good James Bond

15 April 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though not the best James Bond, Pierce Brosnan was far from the worst. In fact, I count Goldeneye as one of my favorite films of the franchise and was always a big fan of the actor’s portrayal of the iconic character. It turns out that not everyone feels that way though, as Brosnan himself says that he can’t even watch his 007 films as he doesn’t think that they were “good enough.”

“I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger and Sean…It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me. The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterization didn’t have a follow-through of reality, it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well,” said the actor. »

'Chimerica,' 'Book of Mormon' win at Oliviers

14 April 2014 5:48 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Irreverent musical The Book of Mormon and hit geopolitical drama Chimerica were the big winners Sunday at Britain’s Olivier stage awards, on a night when London’s small theaters flexed their substantial muscle.

The Book of Mormon — which stormed London just as it earlier wowed New York — won four prizes, including best new musical and best actor in a musical, for Gavin Creel.

Choreographer and co-director Casey Nicholaw said the success of the show — written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone — came down to its blend of “good contemporary satire and good old-fashioned entertainment.”

Penelope Cruz to Play a Bond Girl? (Dear Lord, We Hope So)

11 April 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Apparently, last summer there was talk about Penelope Cruz taking a role in Sam Mendes’ follow up to Skyfall. This week in things we hope are true, a French magazine has found proof(?) that the actress will be in the movie. Sony put her name alongside Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, and Naomie Harris on a release update that included Bond 24. It’s possible that it was an administrative error, but if it wasn’t, how mother-effing great is that news?

Given the franchise’s grittier, more character-driven take since Casino Royale and its ability to attract a well-respected director like Mendes, it’s no surprise that they are finding higher caliber actresses willing to play Bond girls. And no offense, Denise Richards, but Academy Award winner Cruz is a major upgrade. She has done her best work in smaller films, working with directors like Ridley Scott, Woody Allen, and her old friend Pedro Almodovar. »

Is Penelope Cruz in Bond 24?

10 April 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in the summer of last year there was some talk of Penelope Cruz securing a role in Sam Mendes' developing follow-up to Skyfall. While no more was heard in the immediate weeks and months following, Cruz has now once again been linked to Bond 24, via what seems to be a credible source. The French Premiere magazine has spotted her name next to Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris on a Sony release update.If that's accurate, and not just an admin cock-up within Sony's PR, it marks a pleasing casting symmetry with Skyfall, which starred Cruz' husband Javier Bardem as the villainous Silva.As a Bond-girl - whatever that now means in these slightly more enlightened Bond days - Cruz would be an unusually high-profile choice, and the first Oscar-winner to take such a role (Halle Berry won her Academy Award post-Bond). But she's picking her roles carefully lately, »
