Exclusive Video Interview With Sam Rockwell On Laggies

21 October 2014 10:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is a shame that very few people know Sam Rockwell’s name. Most casual moviegoers are probably at least familiar with his face though, due to his scene-stealing turns in films as diverse as The Green Mile, Galaxy Quest, Iron Man 2 and Frost/Nixon. However, he also has a stellar resume of independent projects, including critically acclaimed turns in Moon, Conviction, The Way Way Back and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

Rockwell is formidable at playing men with a sense of arrested development. (his turn as the buffoonish but tender Owen in The Way Way Back even got him some long-overdue Oscar buzz). That made him a prime choice to join the cast of Laggies, a new comedy-drama from director Lynn Shelton.

In the film, the actor plays Craig, a lawyer and hopeless romantic who falls for young, aimless, twenty-something Megan (Keira Knightley). Rockwell gives the role the »

'Warcraft' Lands 'Pacific Rim' Composer Ramin Djawadi

17 October 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Composer Ramin Djawadi (Pacific Rim) has signed on to provide the score for director Duncan Jones' video game adaptation Warcraft, which is currently in post-production after wrapping principal photography in July.

Warcraft is based on the massively popular video game of the same name, where players control characters in a long-standing war between the Horde and the Alliance in a mystical realm full of various creatures. We reported in May that the project will undergo nearly two years of post-production work, before it is released in March 2016. Producer Thomas Tull revealed that the video game adaptation will employ "next generation" technology to bring this fantasy world to life. The first footage was shown at Comic-Con this summer, but it's unclear when the general public may get to see what this massive movie looks like.

Director Duncan Jones has used different composers for all of his movies, employing Clint Mansell for his 2009 directorial debut Moon, »

Pacific Rim Composer Ramin Djawadi To Score Warcraft Movie

17 October 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

According to Film Music Reporter, Pacific Rim and Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi has signed on to score Legendary Pictures’ big-screen adaptation of Warcraft.

Along with the aforementioned duo, Djawadi’s previous credits include work on Clash of the Titans and this year’s Dracula Untold. Now, the experienced composer will take a trip to Azeroth along with Moon director Duncan Jones, who recently confirmed that production had wrapped on the live-action epic.

But Warcraft is far from completion, what with Industrial Light and Magic knee deep in special effects work. And given the fantastical setting of Jones’ film, it may be some time yet before we see a full-length trailer.

That said, during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con event, lucky attendees were fortunate enough to see some early footage for the film, which has since been billed as combining the epic scope found in The Lord of the Rings »

Pacific Rim Composer To Score Duncan Jones' Warcraft

17 October 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to filmmusicreporter.com, Legendary Pictures and director Duncan Jones have hired Ramin Djawadi to compose the Warcraft score. Ramin Djawadi is best known for scoring: Pacific Rim (2013), Clash of the Titans (2010), and Dracula Untold (2014). Duncan Jones' Warcraft wrapped filming in August and currently Ilm (Industrial Light & Magic) is hard at work adding digital effects. It'll be a long grueling  post-production but if the film is nearly as good as Jones' Moon (2009) we are all in for a real treat. A brief amount of footage was shown this year at San Diego's Comic-Con and for the most part it was compared to Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings in scope and the CG characters were said to be of high-quality like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Sadly, the film won't arrive in theaters until 2016. Geesh! Legendary Pictures’ Warcraft, a 3D epic adventure of world-colliding conflict »

NBC Commits To A Bill Lawrence Pilot Of The It Crowd

17 October 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The I.T Crowd is something of a British institution. It is a beloved TV comedy from the pen of the incredibly talented Graham Linehan (Father Ted), which follows the slightly surreal, completely hilarious escapades of some technical support workers at a large corporation. Ultimately comprising four 6 episode seasons and a one-off ‘special’, the show aired in the UK from 2006 to 2010, with its single, triumphant return hitting screens to great acclaim in 2013. It helped launch the careers of its three main cast members – Chris O’Dowd (Dinner For Schmucks, Bridesmaids, This Is 40), Richard Ayoade (Submarine, The Watch, The Double) and Katherine Parkinson (Sherlock, The Honourable Woman), and also its main supporting player, Matt Berry (Moon, Snow White And The Huntsman). In the UK, it is widely held as the gold standard for TV comedy, and now, NBC have committed themselves to a Us pilot of the show, from Scrubs creator, »

Silent Storm team reuniting for California thriller

14 October 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Writer-director Corinna McFarlane and producer Nicky Bentham talk about working with Eon’s Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson on The Silent Storm and their upcoming psychological thriller.

UK writer-director Corinna McFarlane, producer Nicky Bentham of Neon Films and executive producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson of Eon Productions are reuniting after their work on drama The Silent Storm to develop a new psychological thriller set in the California desert.

That project, set in the present day, is now at second draft script stage and Bentham says of Broccoli and Wilson, “it’s great to be working with them again.”

The Silent Storm, McFarlane’s fictional feature debut, premieres tonight at the BFI London Film Festival (WestEnd handles sales). Set on a remote Scottish island in the 1950s, it follows a 30-year-old woman (Andrea Riseborough) who is caught between her overbearing minister husband (Damian Lewis) and a charismatic 17-year old criminal (Ross Anderson) who is delivered »

The Maze Runner review

10 October 2014 10:32 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

With the Hunger Games franchise inching towards its close – albeit with the final book needlessly split into two films for sadly commercial reasons – the Young Adult movie throne will soon be vacant. Divergent had a so-so stab at the title earlier this year, with Shailene Woodley's charisma improving the sketchily explained narrative and sequels on the way.

But while the Veronica Roth adaptation was certain a cut above tried-and-failed Ya novel adaptations like Beautiful Creatures or The Mortal Instruments, it isn't the undisputed champion of the teen audience arena, just yet.

So could The Maze Runner become the 'next Twilight/Hunger Games/massive cash cow'? Well, it's a maybe.

In this dystopian (well, of course) tale, sixteen-year-old boy Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) awakes in an elevator, which rises into a grass clearing – surrounded by ominous towering walls. He's got no memory of whom he is or why he might have »

Clint Mansell on 'Noah's' connections to 'The Fountain' and working with Aronofsky

10 October 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clint Mansell is a long ways away from his days as frontman of alt. rock band Pop Will Eat Itself. Since his first stab at it on Darren Aronofsky's "Pi," he has forged a singular career as a film composer, working on productions as varied as "Knockaround Guys," "Sahara," Moon" and "Stoker." But it seems whenever he comes back to the table with Aronofsky, that's when something magical happens. Mansell has worked with Aronofsky on each of the director's features — "Pi," "Requiem for a Dream," "The Fountain," "The Wrestler," "Black Swan" and now "Noah" — and you can tell talking to Mansell that the creative rapport they've managed to sustain is rare. Mansell is pretty straight-forward about what he wants out of this gig, and Aronofsky has always come across the same way. So it certainly makes sense that they would keep coming back to the well.

Casting: Meryl Streep & Hugh Grant Line Up Opera Film With Stephen Frears & More

10 October 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant are tuning up a project together. The pair are in negotiations/talks to join as an yet untitled film directed by Stephen Frears regarding awful American opera singer Florence Foster Jenkins who "had legions of fans who filled her concerts, but it was never clear whether they genuinely enjoyed her piercing screeches — or were just going along for a laugh." Streep will play Jenkins, with Grant as her manager. [Baz Bamigboye] A project that has been in the works for a few years and once had Armie Hammer attached, "2:22" is moving ahead with Teresa Palmer.

StreamFix: 'Gilmore Girls' and 15 Other October Musts

30 September 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hope you like scares, because here comes a chilling fact: If "Gilmore Girls" began today, Lorelai Gilmore would've been born in 1982. Choke on that. Most of these streams are available beginning October 1. Check out our list of streaming musts from Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Crackle.   Hulu "South Park" Did you know Hulu has exclusive rights to "South Park"? It does. And did you know that "The Book of Mormon," which I finally saw, plays like a long, mostly good episode of "South Park"? Except unlike "South Park," my mother loves it? And she's the kind of person who tried banning "Salute Your Shorts" in my house because they sometimes made jokes about jockstraps? It's all confusing, but let's just sit back and watch "South Park" again. Remember Scuzzlebutt, the creature who had Patrick Duffy for a leg? Yeah, that's 17 years old. Fun newsflash: You'll be dead soon. "Scandal" Olivia »

7 Killer Video Games Inspired By Horror Films

29 September 2014 3:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Naughty Dog

In games, no one can hear you scream – not A.I. controlled NPCs, anyway. They aren’t real. We’re sure future tech will bring RPGs with dialogue trees that we actually read aloud, or even textless, fully dynamic conversation options. This would put us in the place we need to be, technologically speaking, for NPCs to “hear us scream,” so to speak, but we digress…

We only want to scream if it’s for a good reason, and a horrifying video game is pretty much always an excellent reason. We’re not talking about movies based on games. That combination almost never works. Has it ever? Uwe Bolls’ atrocities and the progressively laughable Resident Evil series don’t exactly set a high bar. The first Silent Hill film might be the exception, and Duncan Jones – writer and director of Moon and Source Code – is heading up the new World of Warcraft movie, »

First Look at Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in 'Equals'

26 September 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ridley Scott's Scott Free Films has released the first photo from Equals, featuring stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult.

Directed by Drake Doremus (Like Crazy, Breathe In), Equals is set in the future, where all emotions have been eliminated, although a viral disease can cause them to return. Take a look at the image below, then read on to see what both Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult had to say about the story.

During a press event last month, Kristen Stewart said that she believes the plot, written by Nathan Parker (Moon), somewhat mirrors her own life.

"I'm definitely not afraid of 'feels.' My life revolves around it actually. Finding the balance between the head and the heart is important but I've always been very driven by the gut. Every thought or articulated emotion starts in shapes and colors and putting your finger on that is cool, but it's not necessary. »
