Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that it has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Academy Award winner Russell Crowe’s (“Gladiator”) directorial debut, from RatPac Entertainment, The Water Diviner, which the Studio will release in select U.S. theaters on April 24, 2015.
Starring Russell Crowe (Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind) and Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion, Quantum Of Solace), The Water Diviner is an epic adventure set four years after the devastating battle of Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I.
Australian farmer Connor (Crowe) travels to Istanbul to discover the fate of his sons, reported missing in the action, where he forges a relationship with the beautiful Turkish woman (Kurylenko) who owns the hotel in which he stays. Holding on to hope, and with the help of a Turkish Officer, Connor embarks on a journey across the country to find the truth about the fate of his sons. The Water Diviner is an extraordinary tale of love, »

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.
It looks as if the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is turning out to be a bit of a fan-fest, as news emerges that Adrianne Palicki will be joining the series as character, Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird. For those of you who know nothing about Mockingbird, she is a skilled combatant with a number of weapons, in unarmed combat and depending on which state they want to place her in when we’re introduced to her in the show, she may also have greatly improved strength and agility. Comic fans will know why. Most important, she’s got a mind to match her ruthlessness, with a PhD in Biology.
It’s unclear at this point whether or not she will be linked with Renner’s Hawkeye, who she has been intensely romantically linked to in the comics, after all, Agents of S. »

The cast of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to grow as the McU-set show moves closer to its second season.
A familiar name to comic book fans, who had previously been hinted in a video at San Diego Comic-Con, Bobbi Morse is a spy with exceptional fighting skills, who has teamed up with S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers many times in comics history. She’s been romantically involved with Hawkeye in print, too.

"I'm not gonna forgive you. Only God forgives." Just in case the first trailer for the action thriller called The Prince didn't convince you that this was not going to be a good movie, a second trailer has arrived, showing a little more of the story. Jason Patric plays a former assassin and father who finds his daughter in danger when a rival assassin (Bruce Willis) kidnaps her in order to get back at him for some wrong done in the past. The only interesting aspect of the film is Willis as the bad guy, but he really seems to be phoning this one in. And again, we're not very sure what John Cusack is doing here, but whatever. Watch? Here's the new trailer for Brian A. Miller's The Prince from Collider: The Prince is directed by Brian A. Miller (The Outsider, Officer Down and Caught in the Crossfire) written »

The Final Terror is the latest 80’s slasher to be resurrected by the fine folks at Scream Factory, who give the modest cult classic a really well done high definition presentation. And while they weren’t able to restore the original film negative for The Final Terror, the fact that Scream Factory went to such great lengths to locate the next best thing (original prints from private collectors) proves why they continue to kick all kinds of ass.
The Final Terror follows a group of horn-dog fire rangers and their “special lady friends” as they head deep into the forest for a day of work and, of course, a little hanky panky (this is a slasher movie, after all). During their outing, all kinds of weird crap begins happening- people go missing, severed limbs are discovered in an ramshackled cabin- which forces the friends to come together and figure out »

(Cbr) Did you know that Bruce Willis, John Cusack and Jason Patric are starring together in a movie? Neither did we until we saw this trailer for "The Prince" pop up on Yahoo! Movies. Directed by Brian A. Miller (House of the Rising Sun) from a script by Jeremy Passmore ("Red Dawn," "Special") and Andre Fabrizio ("San Andreas"), the film features Patric as an assassin who’s forced out of retirement and into his old stomping grounds of New Orleans when his daughter goes missing. Unfortunately, Willis’ crime boss has been waiting years for him to return so he can settle an old score. "The Prince," which also stars 50 Cent and South Korean pop star/actor Rain ("Speed Racer," "Ninja Assassin"), arrives in theaters and on demand Aug. 22. »

A movie starring Bruce Willis, John Cusack and Jason Patric sounds awesome. It’s the kind of line-up that film fans dream of. Between them, these three actors have starred in some of the most iconic films of the past thirty years, but, unfortunately, the trailer for The Prince undermines that excitement to the point of being almost off-putting – and there are two very simple reasons why.
The Prince tells the story of a mechanic with a questionable past (Patric), who is reluctantly drawn back into the shady underworld he once left behind when he finds that his old rival (Willis) has kidnapped his daughter. Working to rescue her, he must confront his past. Directed by Brian A. Miller (Officer Down), the film comes from a screenplay by Andre Fabrizio (Photo) and Jeremy Passmore (Red Dawn).
So, here’s the first thing that’s wrong with it – it’s nothing new. »

The last time Bruce Willis teamed up with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson for a movie, it was the abysmal action thriller Set Up, and now it appears neither of them have learned their lesson, because they can be seen back together in The Prince. However, Bruce Willis isn't the good guy, and 50 Cent isn't one of the leads. Instead, it's Jason Patric who takes the role of a father who finds his daughter in danger when a rival assassin (Willis) kidnaps her in order to get back at him for some wrong done in the past. John Cusack is here for some reason too, and this just looks like it's destined for the bargain bin all over again. Here's the first trailer for Brian A. Miller's The Prince, originally from Yahoo: The Prince is directed by Brian A. Miller (The Outsider, Officer Down and Caught in the Crossfire) written by Jeremy Passmore »

We are gradually moving closer toward seeing The Water Diviner – a war drama that is the highly anticipated narrative feature directorial debut of Academy Award winner, Russell Crowe. Having been packaged for sale at this year’s Cannes Film Festival by Wme Global, The Weinstein Company have apparently offered $4 million and a wide release for the film, on the basis of 12 minutes of footage presented by Crowe himself.
The film, written by Andrew Knight (Rake) with first timer Andrew Anastasios, follows a grieving father who travels to Turkey in search of his three sons – all missing in action after the devastating Battle Of Gallipoli in World War I. The battle, which took place between April 1915 and January 1916, followed attempts by Allied Forces to secure the Dardanelles – a strait that constituted a sea route to the Russian Empire. It was the first campaign of World War I to cause major casualties »

When I heard the title "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," I didn't snicker like most of the internet. I immediately wondered what sequels such a perfect, restrained movie title could spawn. Here are the five we need most desperately. 1. Batman v. Superman v. Kramer: Dawn of Divorce Justice After a contentious separation, Batman realizes he must shape up as a man, as a parent. When reunited in court with his icy ex Superman, he realizes Clark Kent is the true, rightful guardian of their child. Superman weeps to the prosecutor about how broken he is as a person and argues he shouldn't be punished for abandoning his child; he needed to become a whole human being again. Batman's neighbor is Jane Alexander. 2. Batman v. Superman v. Tony Orlando and Dawn of Justice Batman and Superman band together in this revenge fantasy against the evil and enchanting Tony Orlando, who »

Though 2015 is all but assured to be one of the most competitive summers in box office history, New Line has every reason to still be confident in the ability of their blockbuster, earthquake thriller San Andreas, to make waves. After all, it stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, one of the most consistently bankable action stars working today. In fact, Forbes named him 2013′s top-grossing actor, for the cumulative successes of Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and Fast & Furious 6.
San Andreas will see Johnson playing a special-ops firefighter who journeys into San Andreas with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) after “The Big One” hits, intent on rescuing his daughter (Alexandra Daddario). Now, New Line is rounding out the cast with some more familiar faces.
