Martin Scorsese, arguably one of the greatest living filmmakers, often gets unfairly branded as a guy who mainly makes “mafia” movies. While it’s true that Scorsese’s contributions to the genre (“Mean Streets,” “Goodfellas,” “The Departed”) are nothing to scoff at, it’s also an unfair and reductive generalization. The truth is that he has contributed to more cinematic genres then you can shake a bloody baseball bat at: from lavish period dramas to rock n’ roll documentaries, religious parables and children’s fantasies. Scorsese also peppers all his pictures with references to films that influenced him: for instance, his underrated “Shutter Island” is deeply indebted to Samuel Fuller’s “Shock Corridor." Of all the New Hollywood filmmakers that emerged in the 1970’s —those film-literate autodidacts who studied the visual language of forebearers Howard Hawks and John Ford and then radically rebelled against that selfsame establishment— Scorsese is almost certainly the most. »

The first teaser trailer for Terminator: Genisys has launched.
"If we die tonight, mankind dies with us." The first trailer for the franchise reboot Terminator: Genisys has arrived, and while the reboot says the rules have changed and a younger version of the badass Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) says everything has changed, not much has really changed at all. She says the timeline that future John Connor (Jason Clarke) sent Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) to no longer exists, and that's because an older Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has been raising Sarah, and dispatched with the younger Terminator from 1984. And yet we still get the "Come with me if you want to live" and "I'll be back" lines. Oh, and there's a new T-1000 (Byung-hun Lee). Yeah, it's a clusterfuck and a half. Enjoy! Here's the first trailer for Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys direct from Paramount Pictures: Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones, »

Following yesterday's motion poster for Terminator: Genisys, a teaser for tomorrow's first trailer for the franchise reboot has arrived. Now we normally hate teasers for trailers, but since this one shows some surprising stuff, we figured it was worth tossing up for discussion before the full trailer arrives tomorrow. Right off the bat, you'll see the return of the liquid metal T-1000 (we presume Robert Patrick came back for this?), and a much better shot of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the aged T-800 model Terminator. And finally, for the first time, we get a glimpse at the time machine that sends them back to the past. None of the new cast members like Jason Clarke pop up yet though, so it's purely a nostalgia trip for now. Watch! Here's the teaser for tomorrow's Terminator: Genisys trailer from Paramount Pictures: Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World »

“I’ll be back.” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior will make good on that promise next summer when Paramount unleashes Terminator: Genisys to theaters. New takes on familiar characters like Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese will be featured in the film, with Arnold once again playing a durable T-800. Ahead of the movie’s trailer debut this Thursday, a new face-dissolving motion poster has been released.
Released on TerminatorMovie.com, the motion poster (see below) features a Terminator endoskeleton’s head dissolving into what could be the sands of time. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for the release of the first Terminator: Genisys trailer on Thursday. In the meantime, we have the official plot details of the new Terminator film from the cover story that appeared in an earlier issue of EW:

Our first impression of Terminator: Genisys wasn't anything to write home about, mainly because the promotional images from Entertainment Weekly were poorly staged and looked like a TV show premiering on the SyFy Channel. But perhaps the first trailer for the film will tickle our fancy when it arrives on Thursday. In the meantime, a motion poster has arrived to tease the movie, and it sends a clear message as to what this reboot will do to the franchise. It shows one of the classic T-800 cyborgs skulls, and then it disintegrates into a pile of sand. Or maybe it's being taken apart by nanobots? It's hard to say. Look below! Here's the motion poster for Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys from the film's official website: Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World) and written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry).

Like Martin Scorsese and Leonardo Di Caprio of Hollywood, Neeraj feels he has met his muse in Akshay! Martin & Leonardo have worked in several films together and all have done well at the box office or been critically like Shutter Island, The Aviator, The Wolf of Wall Street to name a few. Although Akshay and Neeraj’s association is just one film old, now this jodi is ready to thrill us again with Baby.
It wouldn’t be wrong to call Akshay and Neeraj, Leonardo Dicaprio and Martin Scorsese of Bollywood, as they share the same camaraderie, their thinking process is aligned. While the duo’s last flick was high on suspense, Baby will showcase high octane »

While everyone is busy labeling Marco Polo as Netflix’s answer to Game of Thrones, HBO is looking for their own new project big enough and worthy enough of inspiring copycats, and they may have found it with a new series now in development from Executive Producers Martin Scorsese and Benicio Del Toro.
Deadline reported Tuesday that Cortes, created by Chris Gerolmo (Mississippi Burning), is a high profile drama about Hernán Cortés, the Spanish conquistador who came to the Aztec empire and eventually brought it to ruin, claiming Mexico for Spain in the process. Here’s Deadline’s full plot summary:
Cortes will tell the sweeping story of Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés, who brought down the Aztec empire; Malinche, the Mayan girl who helped him do it; and Montezuma, the Aztec leader he befriended and finally put in chains.
Deadline has Scorsese billed as both a producer and director, and »

A crime thriller starring Tom Hardy and a scene-stealing puppy. What more could you want?
It's not without reason that The Drop has so quickly become known as “that movie with Tom Hardy and the puppy.” Based on screenwriter Dennis Lehane's own short story Animal Rescue, the blue collar crime drama aspect of the film is somewhat overshadowed by the metaphors and sweetness of the dog adoption sub-plot.
Overall though, it's still about Hardy as Bob Saginowski, a nice guy in a rough neighbourhood, who tends a friendly local bar owned by his elder cousin Marv (James Gandolfini). But after hours, Cousin Marv's Bar is a drop bar, one of a number of Brooklyn bars that serves as a place of safekeeping for the Chechen mob's ill-gotten funds.
When a pair of young chancers hold up Bob and Marv at closing time one night and only make off with the contents of the till, »
Major Us broadcasters are developing more than 20 TV adaptations of feature films as they follow the example of their cable counterparts.
Us pay-tv networks have recently found success with the likes of Fargo and Teen Wolf, and have lined up further adaptations of Scream (MTV), Twelve Monkeys (Syfy), Shutter Island (HBO) and Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead (Starz).
Traditional networks - ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW - are now getting involved and have struck deals for adaptations of well-known films including Big, Minority Report and The Devil’s Advocate, as well as more niche films such as John Ritter’s Problem Child and Val Kilmer’s Real Genius.
The networks have ordered scripts for the 20-plus adaptations and will decide which projects to pilot by January. Those taken to series will likely be ordered in May for an autumn 2015 launch.

The Drop, a gritty crime drama starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini, debuted in September to little fanfare, which was surprising given how riveting and well-acted the film actually was. Regardless, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is giving audiences another chance to discover The Drop by bringing it to Blu-Ray on January 20th next year.
In the crime drama, which was scripted by Shutter Island novelist Dennis Lehane, bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) and his hardened employer Uncle Marv (Gandolfini) are forced to choose between survival and loyalty when they find themselves caught in a robbery gone bad, and on the hook for a mob debt they can’t repay. Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts co-star in the film, which was directed by Michaël R. Roskam.
The Blu-Ray will boast 1080p resolution and a DTS-hd Master Audio 5.1 track, in addition to a Digital HD copy. Included are special features such as: »

Apart from being James Gandolfini's final film, The Drop is struck through with melancholy. There are other familiar notes, but it's not your conventional gangster flick and being penned by Dennis Lehane (the novelist behind Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island), that air of tragedy soaks through into the very bones of the story. It doesn't run quite as deep as those first two, but still it lingers.
Tom Hardy is ideal casting in what is, essentially, a character study of a loner with an uncommonly strong moral code, albeit warped by his environment. His cousin's drinking hole in Brooklyn is where Bob spends his days, tending bar and turning the other cheek as dirty money is moved in and out of the premises by the new wave of Chechen crime lords. »
London — Ismael Issa’s Spanish production company Rodaje a la Carta has boarded British pic “Tomorrow,” which is executive produced by Martin Scorsese. Variety has been given exclusive access to this image from the pic.
The film, which began production in London in September, has moved location to a town at the foot of the Sierra de Callosa mountain range in Spain. Photography will focus on war scenes featuring Sebastian Street’s character.
The first footage from the film is being screened to buyers at the American Film Market by Carnaby Sales & Distribution. Wme is handling U.S. rights.
Pic, which is produced by London-based production companies Roaring Mouse Productions and Studio 82, is the feature film directional debut of Martha Pinson, Scorsese’s script supervisor on “The Aviator,” “The Departed,” “Shutter Island” and “Hugo.”

While Martin Scorsese has never made a full-blown horror film, there’s certainly traces of the genre in such films as Shutter Island, and today we have a look at the offerings he’s most influenced by. Back in 2009 he spoke with The Daily Beast regarding the scariest films he’s ever seen and considering today’s occasion, we’re […] »

Following yesterday's hokey Entertainment Weekly covers giving us a first look at Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney and Matt Smith in the franchise reboot Terminator: Genisys (and the completely weird plot details), some more photos have arrived. Most of them are just promo images from the same cover photoshoot, but this time showing the cast wielding their guns and screaming in rage, though all but John Connor don't seem to be concerned with actually aiming the weapon properly. However, there's at least one photo from the actual film with a first look at Arnold Schwarzenegger as an aged T-800. Here's the new photos from Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys from Entertainment Weekly: Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World) and written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry).

The Terminator is having a bad day. It's a muggy July afternoon in New Orleans—the temperature is loitering in the triple digits—and Arnold Schwarzenegger is inside a giant warehouse on the grounds of Nasa's Michoud Assembly Facility. Suited up in a black leather jacket with green-painted latex obscuring most of the right side of his face, he is again playing the indelible robot that solidified his place in Hollywood some 30 years ago. So far today the former governor of California has been stepped on and forced to crawl on the ground, and now, as he gasps for breath fighting his opponent, »

A first look at Terminator Genisys has finally arrived.
In September, Paramount Pictures confirmed the release dates for all three films in the new trilogy, beginning with the premiere of Terminator Genisys on July 1, 2015. The second new Terminator film will be released on May 19, 2017, and the trilogy will conclude in the third film, to be released on June 29, 2018.
In EW’s release of the new photos, the article says the film:
“is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones »
