Adele for Las Vegas residency?

25 May 2015 2:26 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Adele is in talks for a two-year residency in Las Vegas. The 'Set Fire to the Rain' hitmaker, who is currently working on her new album after taking time off to raise her two-year-old son, Angelo, has reportedly sparked a bidding war between several hotels, including the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, The Venetian and Caesars Palace, and is in line to ink a $40 million deal. A source told In Touch Weekly magazine: ''The demand for Adele is off the charts. ''Everyone is dying to see her perform again. This could be the biggest deal ever put together.'' The British singer, 27, hasn't toured in almost four years after being forced to cancel a series of shows in the Us in 2011 due to vocal issues. The 'Skyfall' singer was expected to bring out her third LP - the long-awaited follow-up to 2011's '21' - this spring but the »

James Bond 007: revisiting Never Say Never Again

24 May 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Connery's last appearance as James Bond, and the last 'unofficial' 007 movie. We revisit Never Say Never Again...

So does this count? Never Say Never Again stirs many arguments by shaking up the official order, splitting fans on the issue of its legitimacy. Ruins pub quiz questions such as ‘How many actors have played M?’ due to the inevitable argument whether Edward Fox should be numbered. Put such issues aside and enjoy what remains: a sly, witty semi-pastiche that doesn’t attempt to recapture past glories but can easily hold its own alongside Diamonds Are Forever and Octopussy. And with much less swimming than Thunderball.

The Villain: Ignore Emilo: Maximillian Largo is his own maniac. Short, tubby, lanky blond hair receding, Largo is Draco Malfoy gone to seed. Easily visualised shuffling around Comic Con, accompanied by Mr Kidd and the reformed Jaws. Yet Largo is one of the film’s strengths. »

10 Most Outlandish Spectre Rumours

23 May 2015 1:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Eon Productions

In a year with movies like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens all being released, it’s easy to forget that this November will see James Bond, 007 return to the big screen in Spectre, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s Skyfall.

Daniel Craig will play the iconic Ian Fleming creation for a fourth time, while Sam Mendes is directing. That alone is reason enough to be excited, and it’s going to be very interesting to see how this instalment of the 53 year old franchise matches up to its predecessor.

As with any movie this big or highly anticipated, there are a lot of rumours surrounding Spectre. The “Sony Hack” is responsible for many of them thanks to some leaked emails and even a rough draft of the script, and they all offer up a fascinating insight into the »

Roger Deakins continues to prove he’s the best cinematographer working today

21 May 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over at the Cannes Film Festival, the buzz seems to change each and every single day to the fancy new toy, or in this case…movie. Recently, the big exciting debut was Sicario, which got some of the fest’s best reviews a day or two ago. Chief among the praise was the cinematography of Roger Deakins, a legend in his field. He’s my choice for the best Director of Photography in the business right now, and one of the most overdue people in the industry in terms of not having an Oscar on his mantle. Could Sicario give him his first Academy Award win? When I ran down my picks for the best cinematographers right now in Hollywood, I made Deakins my number one pick. This is what I had to say: “My pick for the best in the business right now, Deakins is the most overdue cinematographer ever, »

Will 'Star Trek Beyond' take the Enterprise 'where no one has gone before'?

21 May 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Simon Pegg has a real knack for saying things I agree with in a way that drives people completely insane. I've known Pegg for a little over a decade now, and I was a fan for a year or two before that thanks to "Spaced." It's been quite clear in that time that he takes genre very seriously, and that his fandom is genuine. One of the reasons "Spaced" connected to people who saw it was because it was clearly coming from people who spoke that same secret language that we all do as fans, and we could see ourselves in the characters. Edgar Wright's voice as a filmmaker builds off of the visual vocabulary of many of our genre heroes. One of the reasons I am inordinately curious about "Star Trek Beyond" is because Pegg is one of the writers of the film, meaning he's playing a key »

Roger Deakins lensing Blade Runner 2

20 May 2015 10:02 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Roger Deakins will reteam with director Denis Villeneuve for the long-mooted Blade Runner sequel...

Ridley Scott may be stepping away from the director's chair for the long-gestating Blade Runner 2, but another filmmaking legend will be getting behind the camera, at least. Cinematographer. Roger Deakins, the director of photography who has been nominated for a total of 12 Oscars - yet inexplicably has yet to be awarded one by the Academy - has been tapped to reteam with his Prisoners collaborator Denis Villeneuve, the latter of whom has taken on directorial duties for Blade Runner 2.

While Deakins was not part of the 1982 original cult classic that featured Scott loosely adapting Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? into a hypnotically noirish mood piece, the cinematographer has a long career that includes many genre films. Most recently, he was the director of photography on Skyfall, but his career also includes such unforgettable work as No Country For Old Men, »

Blade Runner 2: Cinematographer Roger Deakins Will Shoot the Sci-Fi Sequel

20 May 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Good news, everyone! When it was announced that Denis Villeneuve would be directing Blade Runner 2, my first thought was, “Hey that’s pretty cool!" And my second thought was, “Wait, does this mean Roger Deakins is going to shoot a Blade Runner movie?!” Indeed. Alcon Entertainment announced today that the 12-time Oscar nominated cinematographer will be reuniting with Villeneuve on the project, marking their third collaboration after Prisoners and the upcoming Sicario. Deakins is quite possibly the best director of photography who’s ever lived, so the prospect of him capturing the world of Blade Runner is beyond enticing. A frequent collaborator of the Coen Brothers, Deakins has shined in a variety of genres from Western (True Grit) to comedy (The Big Lebowski) to James Bond (Skyfall). While he did shoot 2011’s In Time and 1984’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, we haven’t seen much from Deakins in the realm of sci-fi, »

John Ostrander’s Writing Class: Our Characters, Our Selves

17 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’ve had a chance recently to catch some, not all, of Showtime’s series, Penny Dreadful, and I’ve enjoyed it quite a bit. It takes the same concept of Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (combine genre characters from the Victorian Age into a single story) and uses it with mostly horror and supernatural characters and elements, again in Victorian London.

The “real” penny dreadfuls were the pulp fiction of their day, precursors to the pulp magazines and also comics. The TV series was created by John Logan (who, among other things, wrote Skyfall and will be writing the next two James Bond films as well) and is the co-executive producer along with James Bond director Sam Mendes (he also directed The Road to Perdition).

There are also other Bond connections, including Timothy Dalton as the African explorer Sir Malcolm Murray, who is the father of Mina Murray, »

James Bond 007: revisiting Octopussy

17 May 2015 2:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We've arrived at Roger Moore's penultimate Bond. But isn't it about time somebody fought Octopussy's corner?

After the comedown of For Your Eyes Only, the series is back on a high. A very good-natured, occasionally thrilling escapade that boasts an impressive roster of villains, a finely developed heroine, unusually meaty roles for series stalwarts General Gogol and Q, a nuclear bomb and a gloriously stupid title. Yes, Roger Moore has aged to the point where counting the wrinkles is a legitimate distraction. And many valid criticisms can be levelled about plot and credibility. But the good outweighs, or certainly overwhelms, the bad in Octopussy. Still, he really should have quit after this one.

Cannes: Joseph White to Direct Sci-fi Thriller ‘Genus’ for Catalyst (Exclusive)

16 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Joseph White, whose short “The Brain Hack” was optioned for a feature film remake by Jeff Robinov’s Studio 8, has been attached as director to sci-fi thriller “Genus” for London-based production and finance outfit Catalyst Global Media.

Based on the novel by Jonathan Trigell, the writer of BAFTA award-winner “Boy A,” “Genus” is an action-packed movie set in a bleak and dangerous future.

It is being adapted for the screen by Mike Carey, the novelist and graphic-novelist behind “Lucifer,” “Hellblazer” and “X-Men: Legacy,” and screenwriter of Warner acquisition “She Who Brings Gifts,” starring Gemma Arterton, Paddy Considine and Glenn Close. “Genus” will be Carey’s next film.

It is set in the not-so-distant future, when genetic selection and physical perfection are the norm — all the qualities men and women aspire to can be purchased prior to birth, and those financially unable to “self-improve” are ostracized as an underclass in London’s The Kross district. »

Daniel Craig Playing A Stormtrooper In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

15 May 2015 6:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The nature of Skyfall star Daniel Craig’s mystery role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been revealed, thanks to a slip of the tongue by another possible co-star, Simon Pegg.

Cornered by The Sun on the red carpet for his rom-com Man Up, Pegg was asked whether or not he was playing a stormtrooper in the massive blockbuster. “I wasn’t a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper,” he said, then adding: “I shouldn’t have said that.”

Craig’s small part in The Force Awakens was revealed last year, though those excited about Harrison Ford coming face to face with Craig, another cool-as-a-cucumber badass, should temper their expectations. Craig’s face will remain covered throughout the pic, as this is little more than a cameo role given to the actor when he asked for it. One insider told The Washington Post:

As Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) form a deeper bond, the group, including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) and Sembene (Danny Sapani), must unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Helen McCrory (who has returned as Evelyn Poole, aka Madame Kali, the seductive spiritualist that will pose a unique threat this season) talked about how much she was told about the character when she signed on, what a great collaborator John Logan is, what fans can expect from her motives, the fascinating research she got to do, just how much darker this season will get, and that this is the most eclectic cast she’s ever worked with.
