20th Century Fox Comic-Con 2014 Plans Include 'Hitman', 'Kingsman' and 'Let's Be Cops'

10 July 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the full Thursday schedule for Comic-Con 2014 was announced today, several studios such as Paramount and DreamWorks Animation did not reveal which movies they are presenting in San Diego. 20th Century Fox is trying a more direct approach, announcing that they will present Let's Be Cops, The Maze Runner, The Book of Life, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Hitman: Agent 47 during their Hall H panel on Friday, July 25, although the studio's highly-anticipated superhero reboot The Fantastic Four was not included.

The superhero reboot was rumored earlier today to be a part of 20th Century Fox's panel. Of course, it's still possible that cast members Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm - The Human Torch), Miles Teller (Reed Richards - Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara (Sue Storm - The Invisible Woman), Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm - The Thing) and Toby Kebbell (Victor von Doom - Doctor Doom) may surprise the Hall H crowd by showing up unscheduled, »

4 July 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Nicole Kidman is having memory issues in writer/director Rowan Joffe's ('Brighton Rock') new thriller 'Before I Go to Sleep'.

Lyndsy Fonseca Will Be The Escort

2 July 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After winning the hearts of action aficionados everywhere by starring on The CW’s Nikita for four seasons and appearing in the superhero caper Kick-Ass, Lyndsy Fonseca is set to delve into more comedic territory for her next big screen role, having recently signed on to star in romantic comedy The Escort.

As per Deadline, the pic “tracks a sex-obsessed journalist (Michael Doneger) who throws himself into the world of high class escorts when he starts following a Stanford-educated prostitute (Fonseca).”

That cursory plot outline doesn’t give us much to go on, but it’s clear that Doneger, who also co-wrote the script with Brandon A. Cohen, is hoping to use The Escort to prove himself as a leading man. Doneger tried something similar with indie flick This Thing with Sarah last year, directing, starring in and scripting that project, but it never made much noise upon release. Of course, »

10 Actors Who Could Play Robin in Batman v Superman

30 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There has been a lot of talk and speculation surrounding the possible inclusion of Robin in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Daniel Radcliffe recently expressed interest in playing the character, and it was rumored that Adam Driver (Girls, Star Wars: Episode VII) was up for the role of Nightwing. There's no confirmation on whether Robin or Nightwing will be in the movie, but there's a good chance that somewhere down the line one or both of the characters will be introduced into Snyder's DC cinematic universe. 

So I came up with a list of young actors who could potentially take on the role of Robin in the film. Over the years there have been several Robins introduced in the the comics, and any one of those could be brought into the franchise. There's Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Damian Wayne, and Carrie Kelley. Each one had a very different attitude, »

Colin Firth And Samuel L. Jackson Featured In New The Secret Service Stills

25 June 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons’ (Watchmen) The Secret Service has so far been received very well by those who have seen footage at a number of events, and we now have some brand new stills from the movie. It’s hard to tell how much the story has changed in its transition from page to screen, but there do appear to be a few notable character alterations or additions. Regardless, the story – Colin Firth’s Bond-like agent teaches his rough around the edges nephew (Taron Egerton) to »

Matthew Vaughn: 'I was director of James Bond's Casino Royale for 24 hours'

25 June 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class's Matthew Vaughn has revealed that he was asked to direct the James Bond film Casino Royale.

Vaughn recently disclosed that he had talks with MGM about reuniting with his Layer Cake star Daniel Craig for the re-launch of the Bond franchise.

"I had a lot of meetings on Casino Royale," he told Empire.

The filmmaker added: "So much so that the head of MGM offered me it. I had a 24-hour period where I thought I was directing Casino Royale."

Vaughn added that it was "a bit of a downer" that the deal was never finalised, with Casino Royale's directing duties instead going to Martin Campbell.

The director is now tackling the spy genre with Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Colin Firth as a veteran secret agent introducing a young counterpart to the world of espionage.

Vaughn said of casting Firth as a »

Godzilla hits $400 million worldwide

16 June 2014 1:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With one more territory to still hit, Godzilla has smashed its way through the $400 million mark after a great opening in China.

The movie, directed Gareth Edwards who will also be directing the sequels, earned an impressive $36 million over 9,000 screens, which is a record for Warner Bros. The film fell just short of the gaining the best opening in the territory as X-Men: Days of Future Past and Captain America: The Winter Soldier both took around $39 million.

This means now that Godzilla‘s global earnings are at $440 million, which surpases the $380 million it needed to “break even”.

There is a chance for Godzilla to make it over the $500 million mark as its last territory is The King of the Monster’s homeland of Japan. The movie will be distributed in the Land of the Rising Sun by the Toho Company, who have been releasing Godzilla movies since his debut in »

Isla Fisher and Rebel Wilson have joined the cast of Louis Leterrier's spy spoof Grimsby, which stars Kick-Ass's Mark Strong as an elite British spy forced to team up with his football hooligan brother (Sacha Baron Cohen). No word on what roles the two women will play, or whether Fisher and Baron Cohen will reprise their real-life roles as husband and wife. (Fisher as a football hooliganess? We can see it.) Still, it's like they always say: The couple that stars in a spy spoof together, stays together. »

Entertainment Geekly: A call for an end to serious blockbusters

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

I never really had my Godzilla moment as a kid. The closest I ever came was a Godzilla franchise marathon one Saturday afternoon. I watched while everyone else was outside doing outside things, and my main memory of the marathon was thinking to myself, “Geez, these movies really drag when Godzilla’s not onscreen.” I think I was 10?
