X-Men Spin-Off Gambit Won't Begin Production Until 2018

24 February 2017 1:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox's X-Men spin-off Gambit has had a rocky journey en route to the silver screen, with multiple delays, although the movie is still actually happening. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner made it clear that the project is still moving forward in an interview last month. But the standalone drama is still without a director, after Doug Liman parted ways. And it isn't clear when this long-awaited movie may finally get off the ground. Today, we have an update from another producer, Simon Kinberg, who claims that filming will likely begin next year.

Lrm Online spoke with producer Simon Kinberg, who reiterated Lauren Shuler Donner's previous comments that the project is still happening. He also revealed that star Channing Tatum is still committed to the role, and is trying to get the character just right. Here's what he had to say below, confirming that filming on Gambit will likely begin next year. »

15 February 2017 12:34 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“There is a hell. This is worse.” Welcome to The VoidJeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski’s indie horror flick that has today conjured up its first, truly unsettling teaser trailer.

Even for a 30 second promo, The Void crams in just enough bloodsoaked nightmare fuel to leave us wanting more, and if the footage shown evokes memories of John Carpenter, it should. Before blazing a trial of their own, Gillespie and Kostanski worked in design and VFX across such high-profile productions as Pacific Rim, RoboCop and the Hannibal TV series, and the creative duo are “committed to introducing audiences to a unique horror-mythology” with their latest project.

It follows a small town sheriff (Aaron Poole) who finds himself in over his head after escorting an unassuming stranger to the local hospital. From there, things go from weird to downright bizarre, and the teaser above crams in a shotgun blast of »

The 50 Best Action Movies of the 21st Century Thus Far

7 February 2017 10:18 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since the dawn of the 21st century, action cinema has undergone a bigger change than perhaps any other genre. As the tools with which filmmakers craft their works have continually advanced, a sort of renaissance has begun wherein action films stepped firmly into their own. Often put in the same category as horror — not taken seriously as a form of artistic expression outside of its core fanbase — action has had to boldly announce itself as a viable medium through which big set pieces, but also big ideas, can be presented and explored.

With the highly anticipated John Wick: Chapter 2 arriving in theaters this Friday, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s action films that have most excelled. To pick our top 50, we’ve reached out to all corners of the globe, choosing an array of films ranging from grand to gritty, brutal to beautiful. The result »

Dune Remake Gets Arrival Director Denis Villeneuve

1 February 2017 8:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, just before the holiday season, it was reported that director Denis Villeneuve, who is coming off the critically-acclaimed Arrival and is in post-production on Blade Runner 2049, is in talks to direct the Dune remake for Legendary Pictures. Today we have confirmation from Brian Herbert, author and the son of late Dune author Frank Herbert, that the filmmaker has officially signed on to direct this remake. Here's what Brian Herbert had to say on social media.

"It's official. Legendary Pictures has signed the very talented Denis Villeneuve to direct the exciting new Dune series film project."

We reported in November that Legendary Pictures has picked up the film and TV rights for Dune, and with Brian Herbert describing this as the "Dune series film project", it seems that Denis Villeneuve is developing both the movie and TV series as well. Brian Herbert wouldn't elaborate further in his Twitter statement, »

David Ayer addresses Suicide Squad criticism, and what he’d change in hindsight

22 January 2017 12:37 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Much like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before it, Warner Bros.Suicide Squad may have proven to be a hit at the box office, but it divided audiences, and receiving a rather vicious mauling from the majority of critics.

Taking to Twitter, director David Ayer has shared some rather honest reflections on the film, discussing his reaction to the critical backlash, as well as revealing what he would have done differently, given the benefit of hindsight.

David Ayer is set to get a second crack at the DC Extended Universe, reuniting with Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie for the Harley Quinn-led Gotham City Sirens. Let’s hope Warner Bros. gives him more than six weeks to put the script together this time…

X-Men Spin-Off Gambit Is Still Happening with Channing Tatum

12 January 2017 2:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in July, producer Simon Kinberg revealed that production on the Gambit spin-off was expected to begin in Spring 2017, although a concrete start date was not revealed. But then, just a month later, the project lost director Doug Liman, and that was the last we heard about it. The X-Men spin-off just keeps getting pushed back for a number of different reasons. Today, we finally have a new, albeit brief, update on the film, with confirmation that Channing Tatum is still attached to star.

The news came from Buzzfeed reporter Jarett Wieselman, who was present at the TCA Winter Tour today when producer Lauren Shuler Donner was promoting the new X-Men TV series Legion. Although there is no direct quote, the reporter revealed on Twitter that Lauren Shuler Donner told the assembled press members that Channing Tatum is still attached to star as Gambit in this spin-off.

Clay Enos releases new image of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

3 January 2017 5:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suicide Squad set photographer Clay Enos has released another new image of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. It isn’t exactly anything we haven’t seen before, but it’s still a neat gesture, especially considering the box office success of the blockbuster and the mainstream following the Harley Quinn character has gained – so much so that she’ll be headlining her own spinoff movie Gotham City Sirens, which will reteam Robbie with Suicide Squad director David Ayer and reportedly feature Catwoman and Poison Ivy.

Watch the Watchmen-inspired Suicide Squad opening

2 January 2017 4:34 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

YouTube user Chris Banks has created an opening credits sequence for Suicide Squad in the same vein as what Zack Snyder did with Watchmen. Both blockbusters were supercharged with a number of notable classic rock songs, so it’s not exactly the craziest mash-up, but still entertaining. Check it out here…
