The Giver movie review: give it back

18 September 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A very simplistic Dystopia for Dummies — with a bit of Terrence Malick for Dummies thrown in — and inoffensive enough until it devolves into all kinds of stupid. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big fan of science fiction

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It would be easy to let The Giver slide if its only problem were that it bears too close a resemblance to some of the other examples of young adult science fiction that have gotten recent transfers to the big screen. Such as (and most uncomfortably) Divergent, with which it shares a setting of a seeming utopia that shoehorns its happily conformist citizens into narrow roles until one oddball comes along who chaffs at the system. After all, the Lois Lowry novel this is based on was published almost 20 years before Divergent, »

‘Arrow’ Season 3 Trailer Swaps the Bow for a Gun

5 September 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The citizens of Starling City haven’t had much peace and quiet since millionaire playboy Oliver Queen returned from the dead and took up a life of vigilantism. The CW’s hit comic book adaptation Arrow has already introduced plenty of heroes from the DC universe, but it’s introduced plenty of villains as well – and there are more to be expected (both old and new) in the upcoming third season.

Among the new gallery of bad guys is Simon Lacroix Aka Komodo, played by Matt Ward (Tron: Legacy), who can be briefly spotted in the new trailer for Arrow season 3, standing atop a rooftop and getting ready to fire an arrow of his own. It’s just as well that more villains are arriving, since the trailer also suggests that the start of the ...

Incredible Live-Action Destiny Trailer Directed by Joseph Kosinski

4 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Tron: Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski directed this insanely cool live-action/CGI trailer for Bungie's new sci-fi video game Destiny. It also features the voice of Peter Dinklage as one of the main characters, which I thought was great. Here's a little description that came along with the trailer:

A Fireteam heads out on an epic, action-packed road trip across our Solar System to face our enemies, take back what is ours and, in the end, Become Legend. Featuring “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin

I enjoyed watching this immensely, it has a lot of great action, fun humor. Then, of course, the visuals were stunning. If a Destiny movie ever happens, Kosinski is obviously the guy who needs to make it. Enjoy the trailer! »

NFL Kickoff 2014 Features Destiny Game, Pharrell Williams and Soundgarden

4 September 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Tonight's NBC NFL Kickoff 2014 will be highlighted by a pair of high profile concerts taking place before the game, as well as a highly anticipated video game commercial set to air during the game.

On the concert front, Grammy-Award winning singer, producer and songwriter Pharrell Williams will take the stage to warm up the crowd. It's too early to know if Pharrell's infamous hat will make an appearance but I'd be shocked if it didn't. Maybe he'll break out a new color scheme for it that matches Seattle's jerseys.

Just outside of CenturyLink Field in Seattle on a specially constructed stage is where native band Soundgarden will be performing.

During the game is when Activision and Bungie will air the Destiny 'Become Legend' video game trailer directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) and featuring the music of Led Zeppelin. The version that will air on TV during NFL Kickoff 2014 runs 90 seconds; however, »

Watch The Joseph Kosinski Directed Trailer For Video Game Destiny

4 September 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Best know for Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, director Joseph Kosinski tries his hand at this live-action trailer for the upcoming, multi platform video game Destiny. While it won't make me run out to get the game (I'm currently soured on any first person shooter for console. Thank you Call of Duty), it does have me wishing for a Kosinski directed balls out sci-fi action flick. Also look out for some neat references to Star Wars and Independence Day. »

Ward Pens "Cosmic Motors" For Bay & Warners

29 August 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures and Michael Bay have picked Kyle Ward ("Machete Kills," "Agent 47") to write the screenplay for their "Cosmic Motors" project.

The story is based on a 2007 concept art book by German designer Daniel Simon that features futuristic vehicle designs. The book tells a story about the design and the purpose of his various futuristic vehicles.

Simon was the lead vehicle designer on "Tron: Legacy" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" as well as a concept illustrator on "Oblivion" and "Prometheus". He's also worked on futuristic concepts for companies like Bugatti and Lamborghini.

Bay is on board to produce the project. Ward is currently penning the launch film of Universal's "Arabian Knights" franchise.

Michael Bay Finds a Writer for Futuristic Vehicle Movie Cosmic Motors

29 August 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Daniel Simon got his first big screen credit for his work as a vehicle designer on Tron: Legacy and ever since, he’s been adding more and more titles to his resume.  And it makes sense the guy’s getting more work.  Have you seen his book Cosmic Motors?  It’s absolutely loaded with incredible vehicle designs that he puts in a fictional realm called Galaxion, a place where futuristic concepts aren’t relegated to artwork, but actually exist. Clearly Michael Bay enjoys doing out-of-this-world things with cars on the big screen, so it should come as no surprise that he’s the one developing the Cosmic Motors movie.  Hit the jump to find out who Bay just recruited to pen the screenplay. According to Variety, Bay and Warner Bros. just hired Kyle Ward, the scribe behind Machete Kills and Agent 47, to write the Cosmic Motors screenplay.  Ward also »

10 Movies Ruined By Fan-Boy Hate

29 August 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

San Diego Comic Con has become one of the biggest film events of the year. For studios it’s treated as both a high-profile location to announce new projects and a pre-release measure of a film’s potential success, despite those in attendance forming only a small, unrepresentative part of a movie’s eventual audience. In recent years such contradictory reactions include Green Lantern, whose early footage was initially well received and Avatar, with people who got a cheeky glimpse of James Cameron’s behemoth quick to dismiss it.

Even though they’re a minority and clearly susceptible to hype, these fan-boys wield a lot of power. It was the reaction to a test-reel at Sdcc that led to Disney going ahead with Tron: Legacy, a film with little appeal outside of die-hards who remembered the 1982 cult original. Thanks to the internet super-fans who were previously confined by »

Tron-Inspired LightMode Motorcycle Helmets

27 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A few years back, a lithium-powered Tron: Legacy-inspired lightcycle went on the market for a reasonable $55,000. Soon after, officially licensed Tron leather motorcycle suits were released. The only thing missing? Tron-inspired helmets, of course! I’m sure if you were willing to drop the money on a cool but impractical electric motorcycle, you’ve probably found someone to build you a luminescent helmet. But if you’re riding a bike you already love and want a cheaper way to show your love for Tron (or just want to take an extra safety measure so people can see you when you’re riding), LightMode has you covered. They are currently taking orders for their electroluminescent helmets and mod kits on their Kickstarter page.

Here are some tech specs from Uncrate:

LightMode adds glowing El components onto the outside of the helmet using a combination of super-strong glue and chemical accelerator. »

10 Movie Sequels That Took Way Too Long

26 August 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Generally when a movie enjoys astronomical success, movie studios will start prepping a sequel the second they realise they’re onto a winner, either when a confident producer sees some raw footage from the set, or most often once those first weekend box office tallies start coming in. Hollywood is in large part driven by sequels, and though we frequently complain about this indicating a lack of creativity in the industry, if they’re going to do it regardless, movie studios at least need to strike while the iron is hot.

These 10 movies, however, did the exact opposite, making us wait years, even numerous decades before we got our hands on a long-anticipated, much-discussed follow-up, by which point too much time had passed and the results (for one of many reasons) weren’t quite what we were hoping for. Perhaps audiences had just grown tired of waiting, or the original »

Arrow season 3 casts Matt Ward as Komodo

20 August 2014 10:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Entertainment Weekly, Tron: Legacy alum Matt Ward has joined the cast of Arrow season 3, as the DC Comics villain Komodo.

Komodo is the alter-ego of Simon Lacroix, an expert archer, master of Kyudo martial arts, and a big foil of Oliver Queen’s in the New 52 run from Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino. In the comics, he’s a former associate of Robert Queens, who betrays and kills him in order to obtain an amulet that grants him immortality.

Komodo will make his small screen debut in the second episode, and will tie into some of the season’s larger story arcs, according to executive producer Marc Guggenheim:

“He’s the villain-of-the-week for the second week of the show, but you’ll see that Team Arrow’s pursuit of him is part and parcel of a season-long storyline. You’re going to know what happens to Komodo »

Several Updates On "Arrow" & "The Flash"

20 August 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Arrow

Last season saw flashback scenes in which Moira Queen paid off one of Oliver's flings to disappear with her and Oliver's child (which he didn't know about). This has raised the question, is Oliver's son on the show going to be his estranged son Connor Hawke from the comics?

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim says: "We've put it out there and we've got some cool ideas about where to go with it, should we do it, but we haven't committed to actually doing it or even when to do it."

The fifth episode of the upcoming season, originally titled "Oracle," has been renamed "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak" and will still see the introduction of Felicity's mother (Charlotte Ross).

Finally, Matt Ward ("Tron: Legacy") has joined the new season as Simon Lacroix, aka. Komodo. A skilled archer and deadly mercenary who is the 'villain of the week' for the show's second episode. »

'Arrow' Season 3 Adds Matt Ward as Komodo

19 August 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The CW's Arrow is adding to its growing villain lineup once again, with Matt Ward (Tron: Legacy) signing on to play the nefarious Simon Lacroix, a.k.a. Komodo in Season 3.

The character was introduced in DC's "New 52" last April as a young, impoverished man who went on to work for Oliver Queen's father, before turning into a deadly mercenary with archery skills that rival Oliver's. While it isn't known how much of his back story will come into play on the CW series, Komodo will be wreaking havoc upon Starling City in Season 3.

Komodo will be introduced in the second episode of Season 3 as the "villain of the week," but, as executive producer Marc Guggenheim explains, this character is part of the show's initiative to connect their weekly villains into a larger story.
