The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Edge of Tomorrow

16 April 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the past few years, time loop movies have been making a slight comeback in mainstream Hollywood. The genre is one rarely ventured into, with good reason, but the quality we’ve seen recently has been spectacular. So with baited breath, and fingers cross, I am wholeheartedly looking forward to Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow this summer.

The biggest reason I am it is not the fact that Tom Cruise is front and centre, but rather that Emily Blunt is right beside him in the female lead.

Blunt has been rising through the ranks over the years, making huge strides across a slew of genres with movies like The Adjustment Bureau, Your Sister’s Sister, and Looper, not to mention Disney’s upcoming Into the Woods. She traverses independent and blockbuster movies like few are capable of, and seeing her return to blockbuster territory here is what’s got »

New TV spot for Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise

14 April 2014 2:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted an official TV spot packed with new footage from Edge of Tomorrow, the upcoming sci-fi from diretcor Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), which stars Tom Cruise as an officer forced to relive his first and final battle over and over again until he’s able to change the outcome. Take a look below…

The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.

‘Timecop’ Remake Finds A Writing Duo

10 April 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Universal Pictures is looking to give Timecop a redo. The 1994 film, which starred Jean-Claude Van Damme and his mullet, was an undervalued sci-fi gem. To this day, it remains Van Damme’s highest-grossing movie, but middling reviews and a crowded year of notable films meant that it was soon forgotten. And when I say a “crowded year,” I mean it. 1994 gave us The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, The Lion King, True Lies, Pulp Fiction, Natural Born Killers, Stargate, Speed, The Crow, and many more. So Timecop disappeared, except in the hearts of fans that really dug the premise.

Based on a Dark Horse Comics story, Time Cop, which was featured in an anthology for the comic book shingle, the movie told the story of Max Walker- a cop who works for a special police force that has time traveling capabilities. Ron Silver played a corrupt politician that was hellbent »

Jeff Wadlow heading to Eternia for Masters of the Universe

10 April 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Schmoes Know, Kick-Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow has taken on directing duties on Sony’s long-gestating live-action Masters of the Universe reboot, filling the space in the director’s chair vacated by Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation). Wadlow has recently penned the script for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off X-Force, and should this He-Man rumour prove true, it would seem that Fox will need to find another director to bring Cable, Deadpool and company to the screen.

Sony has been developing Masters since 2009, and in 2010 the studio hired Mike Finch and Alex Litvak to draft a script, which was entitled Greyskull. The script has subsequently been rewritten by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2) and Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), while the likes of Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Rian Johnson (Looper), Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), Kirk DeMicco »

'Timecop' Reboot Gets 'Journey 2' Writers Brian and Mark Gunn

9 April 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn have signed on to write the screenplay for Universal Pictures' Timecop reboot, nearly one year after the project was first announced.

Jean-Claude Van Damme starred in the original Timecop, which was released in 1994, centering on a law enforcement agency that regulates time travel. The actor portrayed an officer who tangles with a corrupt politician (Ron Silver), trying to use time travel to further his career. Mia Sara, Bruce McGill and Gloria Reuben co-starred in the film.

The reboot is said to be more of a "gritty and grounded" crime tale, with the sci-fi elements pushed to the background. The project has drawn comparisons to Rian Johnson's 2012 time travel feature Looper, although this reboot will be much larger in scale. The story debuted as a three-part tale in the Dark Horse Comics anthology series, which spawned the original Timecop, a short-lived 1997 Timecop TV series, »

Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here - Deceptively Good Teaser Trailer

9 April 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I don’t think Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here made the splash at this year’s Sundance that he, or the many that crowdfunded the film, would have liked. It received negative reviews from most critics, including myself, who felt that it tread much of the same water as 2004’s Garden State, while failing to live up to his acclaimed directorial debut. In Braff's sophomore effort, he stars as an out-of-work actor who takes on the responsibility of homeschooling his son and daughter when his ailing father can no longer pay their tuition.

This teaser trailer is mostly quick shots of the film’s beautiful cinematography cut to The Shins’ stirring single “Simple Song.” I’ve ranted about how deceptive trailers can be, and having seen the film, I can say this trailer (thanks mostly to the music) makes the movie look better than it was.

Emily Blunt Boards Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario

2 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a good day for director Denis Villeneuve. Earlier, we learned that he had snagged Amy Adams for his upcoming sci-fi thriller Story Of Your Life and now, we’re hearing that he’s managed to bring on another beautiful leading lady for the other film he has in production, Sicario.

Variety is reporting that Emily Blunt will star in the director’s upcoming crime thriller, which follows ”an officer from Tuscon who travels across the border to Mexico with a pair of mercenaries in order to track down a drug lord. ” Production on the film will get underway this summer but as of now, Blunt is the only confirmed cast member, so I’d expect to see many more casting announcements in the next few weeks.

Now, unfortunately, Variety doesn’t specify which role the actress will play. But, considering that they say she’ll be starring, »

Emily Blunt To Star in ‘Prisoners’ Director Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Sicario’

2 April 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

French Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve had already impressed internationally with “Incendies” which earned him a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nomination in 2010. That opened the doors for the one-two 2013/2014 punch of “Enemy” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and “Prisoners” featuring Hugh Jackman, Gyllenhaal and a star-studded cast that included Viola Davis, Paul Dano, Melissa Leo and more. How much extra clout did the two critically-acclaimed movies give him?

When Warner Bros. launched the first trailer for Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow at the end of last year, it was clear that we’d be in for a rollercoaster-ride of a blockbuster this summer.

That first trailer naturally earned itself a spot on our Top 25 Trailers of 2013, and we’ve been looking forward to what would come next. With just a few more months to go before it arrives, we’re due a new look at the sci-fi/actioner, and Warner Bros. haven’t disappointed.

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.
