Over the past month or so we've heard plenty of speculation surrounding casting on the upcoming Terminator reboot from director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), and it seems that Paramount Pictures has now identified the front runners to step into the shoes of Sarah Connor, with Deadline reporting that the studio is "looking closely" at Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Brie Larsen (Short Term 12) for the role.
Both Clarke and Larsen have previously been mentioned as candidates for Sarah Connor, while Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) have also been said to be under consideration. Meanwhile Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) is said to be Taylor's pick for John Connor, the leader of the Resistance, and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) have been mentioned with regards to Kyle Reese. »

Her is the slightly futuristic tale of Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a man who falls in love with an advanced operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). Johansson won the Best Actress award at the recent Rome Film Festival and has generated a fair amount of Oscar and Screen Actors Guild buzz - a feat even more impressive considering she's never actually seen in the movie (which has led to the Golden Globes ruling her out of their own competition).
The latest trailer, which you can watch below, was released today. Obviously aware of its critical applause thus far, there are lots of 'Official Selection' banners and favourable quotes from reviews. Think of it as the 'For Your Consideration' promo. Enjoy....

We just got our first look at the movie poster for his new action thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, in which he portrays the titular CIA analyst who discovers a Russian terrorist plot to devastate the U.S. economy. Here are five things you probably don't know about Chris Pine.
1. He's the son of veteran TV actor Robert Pine, who is best known for playing Sgt. Joseph Getraer on the hit '70s series CHiPs.

For this Thanksgiving week edition of Lone Star Cinema, I selected an influential football film from the mid-aughts. Before the acclaimed series Friday Night Lights started shooting in town, the 2004 film, starred Billy Bob Thornton as coach to a Texas high school football team. Based on the same-titled book by Buzz Bissinger, Friday Night Lights depicts the 1988 season of the Permian Panthers of Odessa, from the promising pre-season to their challenging finish at state.
The movie places quick scenes from the lives of several of the senior players in between montages of the Friday night action in Odessa's Ratliff Stadium. Derek Luke (Antwone Fisher) plays Boobie Miles, an assured running back who is the team's star. I'd argue Luke gives the best performance in the movie. Midway through Friday Night Lights, his character faces an obstacle he may not be able to overcome, and Luke aptly conveys Boobie's bluster, might and heartbreak. »

It’s that time of year, PopWatchers — when otherwise responsible parents camp out and expose their children to threateningly low temperatures in order to see questionable lip synching and larger-than-life icons on puppet strings. No, I’m not talking about a Today show performance by One Direction… but close! It’s the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!Like any good spectacular, there was no shortage of 11th-hour drama: High winds in New York City nearly scuttled this year’s march through Manhattan (for only the second time in 87 years), but justice — and giant balloons! – prevailed. So buckle in, turkeys, because »

Earlier this month it was revealed that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Brie Larson (The Spectacular Now) had tested for the role of Sarah Connor in Paramount Pictures' upcoming Terminator remake, and now The Hollywood Reporter has thrown another name into the mix, stating that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany has also auditioned for the role previously portrayed by Linda Hamilton (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day) and Lena Headey (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles).
There have been plenty of rumours circulating around potential casting for Terminator, which is set to be directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), with Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) said to be Taylor's pick for the role of John Connor and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) said to be in the mix for Kyle Reese.

Kings of Leon's new video for "Beautiful War" is a gripping cowboy story that plays out like a short film. Watch the video here or below. A song off the band's 2013 album "Mechanical Bull," "Beautiful War" is more arena rock than country, but its dramatic, slightly twangy guitars fit the video's narrative. Before the music starts, we watch as "Tron: Legacy" actor Garrett Hedlund gets into a bar room fight and goes to jail. Once there, a corrupt warden taps him to participate in a prison rodeo. The video flashes between the prisoner's past -- full of love and violence »

This holiday season, Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks” and Fox’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” are testing the boundaries of what it means to be an all-audience film, as studios strive to strike the right balance between adult drama and family entertainment.
But the challenge in attracting parents, teens and kids, by no means an easy feat for any movie, is made even greater for these outliers, given that there are already some high-profile family films in the crowded Thanksgiving-to-Christmas corridor, including Disney’s animated musical, “Frozen” and Warner Bros.’ “Hobbit” sequel, “The Desolation of Smaug,” which has an added fanboy component driven by premium large formats, including Imax.
This year, there are seven movies with predominantly family appeal that will bow throughout this month and next, compared with only five in 2012, and 10 each in 2010 and 2006.
The preponderance of family product during those two years caused cannibalization at the box office. »

A group of studio and exhibition executives, as well as filmmakers, gathered early this month to witness Imax’s newst toy — a laser projection prototype — in action.
Feedback has been bright, yet reserved for the final product.
The new system, which Imax showcased at its home office in Santa Monica, features dual 4K laser digital projectors for both 2D and 3D systems, the first of its kind, along with an enhanced sound system that represents the largest research and development investment in the history of Imax.
“This is a technology that I’ve been looking forward to coming online for a while now,” said Joseph Kosinski, director of “Tron: Legacy” and “Oblivion.” Kosinski added that he is most excited about the system’s impact on 3D presentation.
“Laser promises to bring up the brightness levels to where they always should have been for 3D,” said Kosinski, who was joined by »

There is no perhaps no movie that has been spoofed, homaged, parodied and referenced more times over the years than Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. A movie that is absolutely chock full of iconic and memorable imagery, from the creepy twins in the hallway to Jack’s total destruction of the bathroom door, The Shining has pretty much become the go-to horror movie to reference, and countless movies and TV shows over the years have done just that.
It’s also pretty common for commercials to reference Kubrick’s masterpiece, and that’s what we’re here to talk about today. Let’s take a look at a handful of the best!

In a very rare move for a TV series, Fox’s Almost Human is teaming with a popular music act to serve as the show’s composer.
Las Vegas-based electronic duo The Crystal Method has been contracted to score at least the first season of the sci-fi drama, starting with Sunday’s premiere. “We were absolutely thrilled to be asked to score Almost Human,” Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland said in a statement. “The show is really incredible! Although scoring weekly television is a tremendous challenge we feel that this has been the perfect series for us to pick up. »

Most sequels tend to strike while the proverbial iron is hot or at least while the original film is still part of the pop culture zeitgeist. There are exceptions of course (Tron: Legacy, The Color of Money), but the general rule is the sooner the better. Writer/director Malcolm D. Lee has little interest in rules, well, this one at least, and he’s finally delivered the long-awaited sequel to 1999′s The Best Man. It’s the holiday season (we know this because characters receive invites to a get-together planned for that not-at-all specific date), and nine friends are reuniting for the first time in a long time. Some are married and some are dating, some are wealthy and some are struggling, some are healthy and some aren’t, but what they all share in common is a desire to reconnect this holiday season. When? This holiday season. The Best Man Holiday is a Christmas-set ensemble romantic »

There are many factors that grab a person’s interest in seeing a film – the actors, the director, the material that inspired the film, the film’s trailer, but with more and more popular artists and bands trying their had at composing, sometimes hearing new music from these artists can be just as big of a draw. Artists like Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, and Trent Reznor have taken to the sound stage to create music for films such as Tron: Legacy, Hanna, and The Social Network (with Reznor and Atticus Ross even winning an Oscar for their efforts), but what if these recognizable artists were considered a distraction rather than an enhancement to the films they are featured in? Out of the Furnace was rumored to have tapped Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam fame to create new music for the film – a solid choice considering the success Vedder had creating the music for Into the Wild.

This week's big new release is The Best Man Holiday, a sequel to the 1999 movie The Best Man. That's 14 years that it took for us to get a follow-up to the hit ensemble comedy-drama, which stars Taye Diggs, Monica Calhoun, Terrence Howard, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut and more. And the buzz so far indicates that it was worth the wait, with reviews for the sequel near the level of the original. Very few other long-awaited sequels have had such luck. They have their defenders, but titles that come to mind include Tron: Legacy, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Men in Black III and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. We can also include prequels -- particularly Star Wars: Episode 1 -- The Phantom Menace and The Thing -- in the...

Earlier in the week we heard that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) are under consideration for the role of Sarah Connor in director Alan Taylor's (Thor: The Dark World) upcoming Terminator reboot, with Boyd Holbrook (The Host) and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) also up for John Connor.

However, Taylor has apparently identified his number one candidate for John Connor, with the site reporting that Tom Hardy tops the wishlist to succeed his The Dark Knight Rises co-star Christian Bale in »

With a new entry in The Terminator franchise on its way, fans are pretty anxious to know who, if anyone, from the original series will be coming back to do battle with the machines. Today we have a clearer picture.

It seems like things are finally starting to move forward with the long delayed Terminator 5 as casting is well underway on the science fiction sequel. Although Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor is still unconfirmed as director of the film, it seems all but official at this point with screen tests due to take place next week.
The original Terminator and its sequel directed by James Cameron and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, are heralded are two of the greatest genre films of all time. Terminator 3: Rise Of The MacHines and Terminator Salvation however gained incredibly mixed reception from both fans and critics despite Schwarzenegger and Christian Bale’s involvement. The upcoming fifth film in the series is being labelled as a reboot of sorts with time travel no doubt playing a vital role due to the age of the actors and actresses wanted for the sequel.
