Get sci-fi thriller RoboCop half-price in Sky Store. Shiny reboot of the classic 1987 future-shocker with Joel Kinnaman as the critically wounded Detroit detective who is rebuilt by the global OmniCorp as a crime-fighting cyborg. But while his creator (Gary Oldman) fights to keep his personality intact, company boss Michael Keaton sees the human factor as a major bug in his money-making program. »
We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best.
2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu
Birdman is director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s mad masterpiece about one man’s search for relevance and validation. It’s a striking and welcome return to form for Michael Keaton, who has long been absent from the spotlight, bar occasional supporting roles in the likes of The Other Guys and the RoboCop remake. The surprisingly meta world of Birdman is more along the lines of a Charlie Kaufman concoction than something Iñárritu would normally attempt. His crushingly sad takes on existence in Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel and Biutiful have inventive plot devices about intersecting lives, but Birdman is wholly about the grand hallucinatory ego of one man and the stories that happen to briefly touch him. Both Keaton and Iñárritu provide us with ample reasons to admire the off-the-wall, swirling existential crisis that is Birdman. »

Aaron Rodgers has a new girlfriend as the 2014 National Football League season begins to kick off this week on Thursday night. Rodgers, the Qb of the Green Bay Packers is dating sexy actress Olivia Munn and during an earlier interview, he said the two were in sync and "very happy" together.

Asked if he was upset about photographs of them kissing appearing online, the 30-year-old Green Bay Packers player told Espn Wisconsin radio: "No. For one, I'm real happy in my relationship.

Guy Ritchie has finally decided on an actor to play King Arthur for his upcoming Warner Bros. film. Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam will tackle the legendary leader in what's rumored to be a six-film series. Looks like turning down that Fifty Shades of Grey role wasn't so bad after all huh?
Hunnam is in final negotiations for the role of King Arthur. There's also rumors that Idris Elba–who co-starred with Hunnam in his other Warner Bros. franchise, Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim–is in talks to play Merlin. Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla) is also being mentioned for the female lead.
It looks like this project is finally coming together for Ritchie. Warner Bros has tried a few »

Exclusive: Going into his seventh and final season as the prince of the motorcycle club in Sons Of Anarchy, Charlie Hunnam will next have the opportunity to rise to king. Hunnam is director Guy Ritchie’s choice to play King Arthur in the epic Warner Bros project hatched by Joby Harold and intended to span six films. Harold wrote the first script and Akiva Goldsman is producing through Weed Road with Harold and Tory Tunnell through Safehouse Pictures, and Ritchie’s partner Lionel Wigram. Hunnam is in final negotiations to play the man who pulls the sword from the stone.
If you ever doubted whether Hunnam made the right call passing on playing Christian Grey in Fifty Shades Of Grey, well, this story then is mean to convince you he is in pretty good shape. »

Michael Keaton is back, in a big way.
With his new film “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” premiering to favorable early buzz at the Venice Film Festival and set to play Telluride this weekend, word is out on the 62-year-old actor’s kinetic, revelatory performance. Variety’s Peter Debruge called it the “comeback of the century” and other rave reviews have begun to trickle online. In a bit of meta casting, Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, an actor famous for once donning a superhero’s cape, now trying to revive his career on Broadway.
Filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is a true actor’s director; his last three films, “21 Grams,” “Babel” and “Biutiful,” all saw actors nominated for Oscars. And Keaton seems certain to continue that trend. Though many names have been in the mix, at this point the only performance that seems like a lock for a nom has been Steve Carell for “Foxcatcher, »

Wme has signed The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman, the agency said in a wide announcement. The Stockholm-bred thesp crossed over stateside as the street-tough Detective Holder on AMC’s cop show and starred in MGM and Sony’s RoboCop reboot earlier this year.

Kinnaman, previously with CAA, stars opposite Liam Neeson in WB’s 2015 crime actioner Run All Night and has Summit/Lionsgate’s Child 44 with Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, and Noomi Rapace opening in April. The fast-ascending actor first broke out in his native Sweden thanks to roles in the Johan Falk film series and Daniel Espinosa’s Snabba Cash (Easy Money) trilogy. He also appeared in Espinosa’s English-language crime pic Safe House, Lola Versus, and David Fincher’s The Girl With THe Dragon Tattoo.

Dean Devlin is directing Geostorm from a script he originally wrote, which is now being worked on by Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows). Skydance's David Ellison and Dana Goldberg are producing alongside Dean Devlin »
“Twenty five years. Makes a girl think.” So said Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot, and she was rarely wrong about anything, except maybe her taste in husbands. Cinematically, an awful lot can happen in 25 years and Hollywood as we know it today, emerged from seismic developments that took place a quarter of a century ago. 1989 was a game-changer; an absolutely pivotal year in the evolution of 21st century Hollywood. Chances are, whatever you watch at the multiplex this weekend will be genetically traceable to that dark, iPad-less, internetless, Jedwardless time. For those of us who are not going gentle into the dark night of their forties, the specific date of this Big Bang was August 11th 1989. That was the day that Batman finally opened in the UK.
I had never seen a line of people actually queuing around the block, except in vintage documentaries about Star Wars, but »

Joel Kinnaman, the Swedish actor best known for AMC’s The Killing, has left CAA, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The 34-year-old actor joined the agency in May 2013 after he and several other clients of manager Shelley Browning split with UTA. Browning clients Rosamund Pike and Noomi Rapace remain at CAA. Kinnaman gained a following in Hollywood for his work in The Killing, which recently streamed its fourth and final season on Netflix. But the movie that was to have been his breakthrough into the mainstream, Robocop, fizzled in the U.S. when it was released earlier this year.

We reported in March that both Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart were in talks to star, but Jamie Foxx was forced to pull out due to scheduling conflicts. The story centers on a hitman (Kevin Hart) who learns that his employer has sent a colleague known only as The Black Phantom (Samuel L. Jackson) to kill him. They end up forming a unique partnership together as they seek revenge.
Tim Story is directing from a screenplay by Dave Lease and Megan Hinds, which has been in development at Screen Gems since 2009 when the studio first picked up the script. This project will mark the first time that Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Hart will share the screen together. No production schedule was given.

When the Wachowskis’ space epic Jupiter Ascending was taken off the summer calendar and slotted for next February, we had a feeling that the shift might mess up Warner Bros.’ previously laid plans for early 2015. Now, the studio has officially announced what it’s changing – the Liam Neeson actioner Run All Night has been moved from February 6th (when Jupiter will now open) to April 17th next year.
Even if effects work hadn’t caused Warner Bros. to delay Jupiter, it was possible Run All Night still would have ended up moving forward. After all, Fox is releasing Taken 3, also with Neeson, next January.
Run All Night will mark Neeson’s third collaboration with Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra. Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) penned the script, which centers on an aging hitman (Neeson) who is forced to go up against his brutal, sadistic former employer (Ed Harris »

After years of appearing in movies that were reasonable but didn’t capitalise on his immense talents, Michael Keaton looks to be making a triumphant return to leading man status in Birdman Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance.
Opening the Venice Film Festival, this twisted tale of a former superhero actor-turned-Broadway producer is directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Babel) and features Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton and the brilliant Andrea Riseborough.
Here’s the poster, that sees things looking up for Keaton, but perhaps not in the way he expected…
Though Iñárritu can’t quite resist a pretentious subtitle (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance), this is likely to be a feature with »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier taps into current fears about surveillance and data-mining. Ryan looks at its subversive undertones...
Every generation carries with it a heavy payload of shared anxiety. A fear of nuclear annihilation permeated the Cold War era. The 1970s brought with it a distrust of leadership, as Richard Nixon's presidential authority crumbled in the wake of the Watergate scandal.
These collective preoccupations constantly find their way into the stories we share, not least in movies: Cold War paranoia manifested itself in 50s invasion science fiction; the distrust of the 1970s found its expression in such conspiracy thrillers as The Parallax View, The Marathon Man and Capricorn One.
For several years after the global financial crisis of 2008, a resentment towards banks, billionaires and corporate types became a common sight in movies. The comedy »
