Rumour: Silk could appear in Avengers: Infinity War

5 October 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Avengers: Infinity War may be set to add yet another hero to its enormous roster, with rumours surfacing that the character of Cindy Moon – a.k.a. Silk – could be set to feature in next year’s Marvel superhero blockbuster.

The rumour began with a tweet from the IMDb, asking “Does the name Cindy Moon mean anything to you?”, complete with the Avengers: Infinity War logo, complete with a link to actress Tiffany Espensen, who just so happened to portray the character of Cindy in Spider-Man: Homecoming

Does the name #CindyMoon mean anything to you? ???? #AvengersInfinityWar #Marvel https://t.co/HutfagZ9fX pic.twitter.com/Srm9C9Rby1

This of course could be pure speculation on the IMDb’s part, but interestingly the tweet was retweeted by comic book writer Robbie Thompson, known for his tweet on Marvel’s Silk series.

Frances McDormand Delivers but Sam Rockwell Is the Story in ‘Three Billboards’

4 September 2017 8:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In terms of the awards season, all eyes will surely be on Frances McDormand in Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” which premiered at the Venice Film Festival Monday. But while the actress delivers a more nuanced turn than the fire-breathing character you might expect from the film’s trailer, it’s Sam Rockwell who really punches through the ensemble with a dramatic arc and a reminder that the journeyman actor can be one of the best tools in a director’s arsenal.

Rockwell stars as hateful Missouri law officer Jason Dixon, clearly a few bricks shy of a load, a simpleton who is the product of his limited environment. But he’s by no means a caricature. Jason has deep admiration and love for Woody Harrelson’s noble Sheriff Bill Willoughby, under fire from McDormand’s scorned Mildred Hayes, who seeks justice for her raped and murdered daughter. He »

Sam Rockwell Is George W. Bush in Cheney Biopic

31 August 2017 5:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sam Rockwell (Matchstick Men, Iron Man 2) is one of the best actors working today so any role he takes on is worth taking a look at. But this latest news is particularly interesting. The 48-year-old actor is reportedly in final negotiations to play former president George W. Bush in the upcoming Dick Cheney biopic, simply titled Cheney, which is to be directed by Adam McKay (The Big Short).

The news comes courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter who state that Sam Rockwell is going to play the infamous president in Cheney, who was in office during the 9/11 terrorist attacks and led us into war with Afganastan and the much more controversial Iraq war. Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) has already signed on to play Dick Cheney in the movie, which looks to start filming next month. The cast of the movie also includes Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) as Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, »

17 August 2017 3:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Justin Theroux won’t be staying off television for too long. The actor is following his acclaimed three-season run on HBO’s “The Leftovers” by joining Emma Stone and Jonah Hill in “Maniac,” the Netflix original drama from “True Detective” Season 1 director Cary Fukunaga. The filmmaker made Netflix’s first original feature, “Beasts of No Nation,” which was released in October 2015.

Maniac” is a 10-episode drama based on the 2014 Norwegian series. Hill and Stone’s characters are patients in a mental asylum and a majority of the season will take place in their dreamed-up fantasy worlds. Think of it as Fukunaga’s version of “Sucker Punch.” Theroux is playing a character named James Mantleray, who is rumored to be an alcoholic mad scientist. No character description has been confirmed.

The directors who can take cinema forward over the next decade

30 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the directors who can take cinema forward over the next decade…

There’s a cinematic crossroads on the horizon. As the market gets swallowed up by a core consumer taste leaning toward spandex and radioactive arachnid bites, there’s a need for modern thinking, engaging directors to offer something different. After all, there’s only so long the Marvel cow can be milked. It will dry out. It’s the way of things. Studios now bank on billion dollar returns. These seem safe bets now, but for how long? Ultimately it will become a huge gamble.

We’re still seeing interesting film-makers doing their best to re-invigorate or subvert genres. Edgar Wright just smashed it out of the park with Baby Driver. There was a degree of hyperbole about marking him as a cinematic master (until he improves his depiction of women in films, that may allude »

Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio Developing True-Crime Thriller ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ (Exclusive)

14 July 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are developing a film adaptation of true-crime thriller “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI” as the director’s next project after “The Irishman.”

Scorsese’s longtime production designer, Dante Ferretti, told Variety that Scorsese hoped to start shooting “Flower Moon” in the spring of next year. The project is based on the bestselling book by David Grann, a staff writer for the New Yorker and author of “The Lost City of Z.”

Rights to “Flower Moon” were snapped up by Imperative last year for a reported $5 million, and a script has reportedly been drafted by veteran Oscar-winning scribe Eric Roth (“Forrest Gump,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”).

Ferretti, who has worked with Scorsese on nine movies from “The Age of Innocence” through “Silence,” said he was going to “go to Oklahoma” to do preliminary location scouting for “Flower Moon.” The »

War For The Planet Of The Apes & The Rise & Rise Of Intelligent Sci-Fi

11 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Science Fiction has been with us for as long as we’ve had cinema. Méliès made his Trip to the Moon, Lang built and displayed his dystopian Metropolis and Jules Verne’s rich science fiction novels fed into cinema’s early efforts to showcase the fantastical.

Thankfully, cinema’s relationship with science fiction has also generally proved to be intelligent and thought-provoking. Spectacle, as with the disaster epics of Irwin Allen’s 1970’s heyday, has always had its place, but alongside that films as diverse as Planet of the Apes, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Metropolis, Soylent Green and Invasion of the Body Snatchers gave us much to consider about human nature, society and our relationship with our fragile planet.

More recently, Independence Day, Armageddon, War of the Worlds, Mars Attacks, Men in Black and even more sci-fi inflected comic book entries like Guardians of the Galaxy, »

What Warcraft 2 Will Be About If Duncan Jones Returns to Direct

21 June 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warcraft was not the movie that many wanted it to be, at least if the critics are to be believed. And it certainly wasn't quite what Legendary Pictures was hoping for, either. The movie wasn't exactly a major blockbuster hit (at least domestically) that was meant to launch a big franchise, which was the intention. But director Duncan Jones is still holding out hope for Warcraft 2, and now he has shared some story details for his vision, should the movie ever happen.

Flickering Myth brings us the story details, which were revealed by Duncan Jones after a recent screening. The director explains that, should he get to do Warcraft 2, it would follow Durotan's son in his adolescent years. Here's what he had to say about it.

"This first film is about establishing the world, and showing Durotan helping his son escape a dying planet. So, to me, the idea over the course of three films would be for Thrall to fulfill that vision of Durotan to create a new homeland for the Orcs. So, it would be the adolescent years of that baby, and anyone who does know their Warcraft stories would know it's very much a Spartacus story that goes on with that character. I would basically follow that through. And with the human side of it, which is a little less clear of how that would follow, but basically, there is an aftermath to this film which would need to be completed. And on the Orc side you're very much following that baby, Go'el, known as Thrall in the universe, and how he eventually creates the Orc homeland."

Say what you will about Warcraft, but it certainly sounds like Duncan Jones has quite the vision for this trilogy. Interestingly enough, Jones has a pretty damn good track record outside of Warcraft, with Moon and Source Code doing rather well with fans of sci-fi, if not massive commercial smashes. His next movie, Mute, is set to debut later this year on Netflix and, according to the director, will cap the trilogy that includes Moon and Source Code. All of that to say, he would probably learn some lessons from what went wrong with Warcraft and do some serious course correction with Warcraft 2. But the ball is in Universal's court at this point.

Warcraft, despite doing very poorly with critics, wound up being the highest-grossing video game movie of all time. Even though the movie only made $47 million domestically, which probably is less than the studio hoped it would make opening weekend, the movie grossed $433.6 million worldwide. If the movie hadn't cost $160 million to make, Warcraft 2 probably would have been given the green light already. Though, looking at a movie like Pacific Rim, which made $411 million worldwide against a $190 million budget, which is getting a sequel next year with Pacific Rim: Uprising, Warcraft 2 doesn't seem totally out of the question. If Universal pulls the trigger, Duncan Jones seems to be ready and waiting. »

Director Duncan Jones Has A Specific Arc In Mind For Warcraft 2

Whereas Legendary and Universal’s fantasy epic launched as simply Warcraft in North America, overseas the movie came bearing a very specific subtitle: The Beginning.

It was a bold statement of intent from both parties, as it signalled the tentative trilogy plans for Duncan Jones’ sweeping video game adaptation. Alas, a less-than-stellar take at the box office – $47 million domestic and a whopping $386 million overseas for a combined total of $433 million – has put those plans on ice for the time being, but Jones isn’t about to throw in the towel just yet.

While hosting a Warcraft screening in in London’s Leicester Square alongside producer Stuart Fenegan, the Moon filmmaker outlined a very specific arc for the potential sequel.

This first film is about establishing the world, and showing Durotan helping his son escape a dying planet. »

Duncan Jones opens up about the troubled production of Warcraft

20 June 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night, director Duncan Jones and producer Stuart Fenegan presented a Q&A screening of last year’s Warcraft in London’s Leicester Square. Amongst talking about what he would have liked to have done with Warcraft 2, Jones opened up about the troubled production of the movie, comparing the studio politics to Game of Thrones.

“One of the things that was absolute gut-punched was [the narrative],” he said when asked about the battles he lost with the studio. “It’s such an expensive process to make a movie like this, and when you make a decision to exorcise a scene during script stage or anywhere down the line right up towards the end, it’s never coming back. Because it’s too expensive to backtrack though all the animation and effects. People ask me when the directors cut is coming out, and there will never be a director’s cut. Unfortunately. There »

Duncan Jones reveals what his story would have been for Warcraft 2

Warning: There are spoilers for Warcraft in this post…

Last night Warcraft director Duncan Jones and producer Stuart Fenegan presented a screening of the movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square. Jones and Fenegan spoke openly about the issues they had making the movie, comparing the studio politics to Game of Thrones at one point, and the director revealed where the story would have gone had Warcraft 2 been green lit (which doesn’t seem likely).

“This first film is about establishing the world, and showing Durotan helping his son escape a dying planet,” Jones told the audience. “So to me the idea over the course of three films would be for Thrall to fulfil that vision of Durotan to create a new homeland for the Orcs.

Duncan Jones says no conversations have taken place about Warcraft 2

12 June 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year’s Warcraft wasn’t the hit many were hoping for and despite setting itself up for one, a sequel was in doubt after a disastrous domestic box office run. There were rumours that a sequel could still happen and there was even a story it could be a Chinese-centric release following fantastic box office numbers there, which helped push Warcraft pass $400 million worldwide – making it the biggest video game movie of all-time.

Jones has been very vocal about the difficulties he had working on the movie – even saying 40 minutes had been cut and it died by death of 1,000 cuts – but was willing to work on a sequel. He recently announced a special screening of the movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London with a Q&A afterwards, and a fan asked him on Twitter if any conversations about Warcraft 2 had taken place. To which the director simply wrote, »

The 25 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century, From ‘Children of Men’ to ‘Her’

Sci-fi isn’t easily defined, but in determining the top 25 sci-fi movies of the last 17 years, we’ve done our best. No fantasy-super hero movies here; for an action, horror, or animated movie to be on this list, it needed to firmly rooted in sci-fi origins. And let’s get this out of the way: While we adore these films and consider them among the very best of the century, we decided they didn’t qualify or were better suited for a different list: “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Gravity,” “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Holy Motors,” and “Battle Royale.”

Drum roll, please…

With one room and $50,000, director James Ward Byrkit showed there are no limits to what’s possible in the sci-fi genre.
