We missed this piece of news, but better late than never... I only just learned that British actor Daniel Kaluuya is in the cast of Kick-Ass 2, which is currently in production. Kaluuya signed up to play a character named Black Death, said to be part of the gang of villains led by The Mother F*cker (formerly Red Mist), played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Also of note, a new face, and another black British actor in Tanya Fear, in her first feature film role, playing a character named Harlow, described as one of the mean girls. I assume all of these identifications and descriptions mean something to those who are familiar with the Kick-Ass »

At this point, it might be easier to list all the names of young, hunky Hollywood actors who aren’t screen testing for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″, which is currently looking for a handsome and athletic actor to play Harry Osborn, Peter Parker’s bestest bud in the upcoming sequel. The four gents currently up for the role of Harry Osborn are a trio of Brits led by Sam Clalfin (last seen in “Snow White and the Huntsman”), Eddie Redmayne (Sean Bean’s traveling companion in “Black Death”), and Douglas Booth (soon to be seen in Darren Aronofsky’s bible epic “Noah”). The lone American in this latest batch of Hollywood hunks testing for the role is Boyd Holbrook, soon to be seen in Andrew Niccol’s “The Host”. Webb will return to direct, with Andrew Garfield also back as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. Emma Stone will »

Many film websites published “decade’s best horror films” lists in late 2009/early 2010. While these lists collectively provided a rough snapshot of the genre’s ups and downs during that time, with more time to reflect, it becomes increasingly clear what an important period the 2000’s were for the horror genre on a global scale.
Not only did this decade easily and obviously eclipse the comparatively arid 1990’s in both volume of production and overall quality, the 2000’s can also be looked at as a crucial one for horror cinema despite the justified outrage about the American film industry’s widespread strip-mining of classics and foreign films for remakes/re-boots and its saturation of the market with teen-friendly PG-13 rated horror films.
While by no means as groundbreaking as the 1970’s or as sentimentally regarded as the 1980’s, the 2000’s will be recalled as the decade that, despite well-founded criticisms »

The website, Little White Lies, recently had an article with Sean Bean in which he lists and provides behind-the-scenes information on his top five on-screen deaths scenes. Making the list was his death scene in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, when Uruk-hai leader Lurtz uses Boromir as a dartboard. Also making the list were Black Death (2010), Patriot Games (1992), The Field (1990) and Equilibrium (2002). To read Bean's descriptions of those scenes click here. Now keep in mind, Sean Bean may be easy to kill on-screen, but that doesn't mean he is any sort of pushover in real life. Take this story for instance, it's from The Daily Mail, it's a fun read. In 2011 Sean Bean went to a local pub with April Summers, a Playboy model three decades younger than him (Nice!). At some point during the night a passerby made a lewd »

"I think one of the things that the show explores is the idea of human nature in crisis. One of the things I've been reading a lot of is about how the Black Death in the 1300s affected Europe and how people sort of ghettoized themselves, how that spread fear and blame, but also, how that was seen by some people as a cathartic thing, a new thing, the world starting again. ...

As Halloween fast approaches it’s that time of year again when filmmakers see the annual occasion as an excuse to release their latest horror flick, as more often than not, we are subject to lacklustre, unoriginal movies that are about as scary as a packet of mints. However, this Halloween we’ve got the promising Silent Hill: Revelation 3D – and to mark the release of the long-awaited sequel, I caught up with leading star Sean Bean.
Based on the hugely successful video game franchise, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D takes us back to the eponymous town, a place where nightmares are a terrifying reality. Bean plays the role of Harry, a vigilant father to Heather (Adelaide Clemens) who is drawn into the surreal, alternate reality that is Silent Hill.
Bean discusses what it’s like to get involved in the horror genre, and what it is about this particular franchise »

Bassett's 'Silent Hill: Revelation 3D' eye-popping sequel heads into Us theatres we just have time to check out a newly revealed international poster from the follow-up.

The sequel stars Adelaide Clemens ('No One Lives'), Radha Mitchell ('Pitch Black'), Sean Bean ('Black Death'), Deborah Kara Unger ('White Noise'), Carrie-Anne Moss ('The Matrix'), Kit Harington ('Game of Thrones'), Malcolm McDowell ('A Clockwork Orange') and Heather Marks.

With filming well underway on Kick-Ass 2, Universal Pictures has taken the opportunity to release a rather detailed plot synopsis for the Jeff Wadlow-directed superhero sequel, which you can check out right here:
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy. »

The premiere of the first episode of Reelzchannel's upcoming 8-part mini-series World Without End is only a day away (the drama begins tomorrow at 8p Et/5p Pt), and will let Sex and the City fans watch actress Cynthia Nixon in a whole new kind of character: a villain. "I am pretty evil, and I can tell you, I don't reform," said Nixon to THR about her character Petronilla. "I only get more and more evil [after the first episode]; you haven't seen nothing yet."
Based on author Ken Follett's bestselling novel, World Without End is the sequel to The Pillars of Earth and is again set in the fictional English town of Kingsbridge, only 157 years later. With historical events like the Hundred Year War and the outbreak of Black Death looming over the proceedings, Petronilla is the cunning mother of the scheming Godwyn (Rupert Evans). Nixon admits that she's "never played anything quite like" Petronilla. »
