On my radar: Jane Goldman’s cultural highlights

4 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The screenwriter on a great festival, shock horror Train to Busan, hacking TV drama Mr Robot and immersive theatre to die for

Born in London in 1970, screenwriter, producer and author Goldman began her writing career aged 16 when she left school and became a journalist, initially working as a showbiz reporter for the Daily Star. That same year she met Jonathan Ross in a nightclub, married him in Las Vegas aged 18 and went on to have three children with him. While the children were young, Goldman published several nonfiction guides for teenagers and, in 2000, her first novel, Dreamworld, before making the switch to films as co-writer on 2007’s Stardust. The movie was the first of several successful screenwriting collaborations with Matthew Vaughn, namely Kick-Ass (2010), X-Men: First Class (2011) and Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015). Her latest project is an adaptation for director Tim Burton of Ransom Riggs’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, »

Next month sees the launch of the hotly-anticipated comic book series Reborn from Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Greg Capullo (Batman), and thanks to Image Comics, we’ve got a look at the variant covers for the first issue.

A sprawling, science-fiction/fantasy epic, Reborn explores a jaw-dropping world of possibility. Where do you go when you die? Not heaven or hell; somewhere else. Somewhere you have to fight to survive. Somewhere the people from the past are waiting for you—the good and the bad.

Chloë Grace Moretz Drops Out Of All Upcoming Movies Including Live-Action The Little Mermaid

17 September 2016 3:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you keep up with the gossip columns, you’ll know that Kick-Ass star Chloë Grace Moretz recently broke up with boyfriend Brooklyn Beckham. As a result, there’s a lot of speculation that that has something to do with her decision to drop out of every single one of the upcoming movies she was signed up to star in.

Whether or not that’s the case is unclear, but the actress has issued a statement offering her take on the situation. What this means though is that the Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising and The Fifth Wave star will no longer take on the title role in Universal’s live-action reimagining of The Little Mermaid, which is by far her highest profile upcoming project.

“I pulled the plug on all my movies because I want to reassess who I am and find myself within my roles again. I’m realizing that I can slow down. »

The Villain Of Wolverine 3 Has Been Revealed

13 September 2016 1:22 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Even though it is set for release in less than a year, it’s been all bit thin on the ground when it comes to Wolverine 3, Hugh Jackman’s last appearance as the character he has been playing for 16 years. We know it’ll be taking elements from Mark Millar's (creator of Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret service) future set storyline Old Man Logan, with Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal, and Elisabeth Rodriguez all joining Jackman for his last runaround in Fox's X-Men universe. A rumour has been doing the rounds for a while now that cybernetic mercenaries The Reavers will be the movie’s big bad, but, with thanks to Cinema Blend for the heads up, the commentary track for X-Men: Apocalypse has director Bryan Singer and writer/producer Simon Kinberg revealing that fan favourite villain and genetics expert »

The Age of Ire: How Marvel & DC fan the flames to sell comics

5 September 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on how Marvel and DC fan the flames to sell comics…

The classic age of comics were called ‘The Golden Age’. Pretty much from the moment Superman showed up hurling an Edsel at criminals. The Silver Age was ushered in when DC created a brand new Flash passing the mantle to Barry Allen. Classic characters were being reformatted for more modern times. The Bronze Age was when the medium matured and stakes were raised for our heroes. Speedy was a drug addict. Tony Stark was a drunk. Spider-Man didn’t save the day and poor Gwen Stacy paid the price. The Modern Age was signified by Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns; stories that brought a darker, grittier type of hero to the medium. A trend that has continued very much to this new day.

However, I think the modern age has ended, and a new era has begun. »

Sneak Peek new images of 'Thor'. 'Loki' and 'Odin' from the set of Marvel Studios' "Thor: Ragnarok":

Colin Firth Promises a Big Harry Hart Surprise in Kingsman 2

1 September 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most fans were quite shocked when, towards the end of last year's surprise hit Kingsman: The Secret Service, Colin Firth's character Harry Hart was killed off by the villainous Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson). Once talk of a sequel started to surface, director Mark Millar teased that he may find a way for Colin Firth to return, and it was confirmed that he will come back through a cryptic poster, along with new photos from the set. Today we have new details from Colin Firth himself, who offered some very subtle hints about his return.

Collider caught up with the actor, who was promoting his new romantic comedy Bridget Jones' Baby, in theaters September 16. Last month, Colin Firth was seen in his Harry Hart costume in a photo from the set from Pedro Pascal, but details about Harry's return have been kept close to the vest. The actor wouldn't »

"Captain America: Civil War" - 'Zemo' Deleted Footage

24 August 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take a look @ deleted footage from Marvel Studios' "Captain America: Civil War", showcasing a scene with the villain 'Zemo' (Daniel Brühl ):

"Daniel Brühl is an incredible actor," said actress Elizabeth Olsen, who reprises her role as 'Scarlet Witch' in the new film.

"...and he's playing the main villain ('Zemo') in it. And he's incredible! 

"It's a movie about people as opposed to robots this time. So it's darker and it's allowed to be darker because it gets more in the mindset of humans rather than machines..."

"He (Zemo) does not wear the mask," said Brühl about his look in "Civil War".

"You would be surprised, it's different than what you'd think. It's loosely connected to this character. 

"But that's what I like about the Marvel guys, some of the characters and things they’re dealing with always reference to current events...

"...so my character is from a different area than you would think. »

"The Adventures Of Super Pup"

4 August 2016 10:06 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Thanks to a link provided by "Kick-Ass" writer Mark Millar, take a look @ the 1958 unaired TV pilot "The Adventures Of Super Pup" from the producers of the classic "Adventures of Superman" TV series, featuring the first television portrayal of the 'Superman' characters as non-humans:

"...'Pamela Poodle' is the victim of evil 'Professor Sheepdip', who has tied her to a rocket that will be launched into space. Only 'Super Pup can save the day..."

Television producer Whitney Ellsworth created a pilot that placed the 'Superman' mythos into a fictional universe populated by dogs instead of human beings. 

The live-action actors were placed in dog-head suits to portray the canine versions of the characters. 

The pilot was filmed on the same sets/locations as "The Adventures of Superman", with all roles portrayed by 'little people'.

Colin Firth Returns as Harry Hart in New Kingsman 2 Set Photo

11 July 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after 20th Century Fox released their surprise blockbuster Kingsman: The Secret Service, talk of a sequel started to surface. Director Matthew Vaughn teased last spring that he had some ideas for the sequel, even hinting that Colin Firth's character Harry Hart may return in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, despite being seemingly killed off at the end of the first movie. Back in April, a new poster teased the return of Harry Hart, but we haven't gotten a glimpse at the actor since production began. Thankfully, Pedro Pascal has offered our first look at Colin Firth from the set.

Over the weekend, Pedro Pascal shared a photo on Instagram, which features the actor hiding behind Colin Firth, with the caption "Hide behind Harry." Unfortunately, the photo doesn't come with any details about how this Kingsman agent was brought back to life, but the poster from this spring featured the »

Kingsman 2 Reunites Vinnie Jones and Director Matthew Vaughn

29 June 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past few months, the 20th Century Fox sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle has been releasing a number of unique posters which have confirmed new cast members such as Channing Tatum, Elton John and Jeff Bridges. These posters have even revealed the return of Colin Firth, though his character Harry Hart was presumably killed in last year's blockbuster Kingsman: The Secret Service. Today we have word that Vinnie Jones has joined the cast, reuniting him with director Matthew Vaughn.

Vinnie Jones teased on Twitter earlier this week that he was filming scenes for Kingsman 2, although it seems a few of his followers didn't believe him. The actor went on to prove that he was in fact on the Kingsman: The Golden Circle set by posting a few videos and new photos of the actor alongside director Matthew Vaughn and co-star Julianne Moore. Unfortunately, the actor wouldn't shed any »

Brexit Fallout: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Star Wars,’ and Oscar Favorites Could Face Trouble

24 June 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Update: “Game of Thrones” producers have told Entertainment Weekly that the Brexit vote will not affect production on the HBO series.]

Brexit has already brought crashing markets and Prime Minister David Cameron’s resignation. It’s reasonable to believe that the financing and production of the biggest TV and film productions could soon follow suit. Here’s a breakdown of the major categories that could feel the impact.

Large Hollywood Productions

The Star Wars franchise is one of many blockbusters that shoots at Pinewood, a top-notch UK soundstage. “Game of Thrones” makes great use of the green field of Northern Ireland.  “Outlander” creates it’s magical universe in Scottish castles and countrysides.  All told, Hollywood sends 10%-12% of its productions — and billions of dollars — to the UK.

Hollywood is attracted to shoot in the U.K. because of tax incentives which save 25% on up to 80% of total production costs.  These rebates are now in jeopardy due to Brexit. It is possible that the British government could decide to continue these incentives on their own. »

Mark Millar unveils new black female Kick-Ass

23 June 2016 10:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kick-Ass is set to get a makeover, with Mark Millar revealing to The Hollywood Reporter that Dave Lizewski is set to be replacing by a new black female character for the upcoming series Kick-Ass: The New Girl, which will see Millar once again collaborating with co-creator John Romita Jr.

“Comics is not short of white males aged around 30; that demographic seems pretty well catered for in popular culture,” Millar said. “I don’t think many blonde white guys around 30 feel under-represented when they pick up comic or watch a movie. Being older or younger or female or African-American just seems more interesting to me as a writer because this character is quite unique and opens up story possibilities that haven’t been tried in almost eighty years of superhero fiction. This woman has a completely different take on Kick-Ass. Kick-Ass is like James Bond or Doctor Who, where with »
