Foxcatcher Cinematographer will shoot Gareth Edwards' Star Wars spinoff

24 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

While there is understandably a lot of the hype surrounding director J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, there has not been much in the way of any news regarding the other Star Wars films being planned. Starting next year we will see a new Star Wars movie every year: after Episode VII there will be a standalone movie directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), then Rian Johnson’s (Looper) Episode VIII, and then there will be another standalone movie this time directed »

Blu-ray 3D, DVD, Digital Release: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

22 October 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Nov. 18, 2014; Digital Release Date: Nov. 7, 2014

Price: DVD $29.98, Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99

Studio: The Weinstein Company

The action-packed, graphic novel-styled thriller Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the decade-later sequel to 2005’s Sin City, both of which are directed Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez (The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl).

We don't know your opinion, but we definitely think Eva Green is A Dame to Kill For.

The film is filled with  scandal, murder, betrayal and mystery revolving around the lives of those swept up in a crime-filled underworld. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, Sin City’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants.

The film stars original Sin City performers Mickey Rourke (Immortal), Jessica Alba (Spy Kids 4), Bruce Willis (Looper), Powers Boothe (TV’s Hatfields and McCoys) and Rosario Dawson »

Crowdfund This: 'Send Me' – New Web Series w/ Tracie Thoms Dealing w/ Black People Sent Back in Time to Slavery Days

13 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Who in their right mind would want to do that? But then again, the premise of the currently-in-development web series is what definitely makes it unique, wouldn’t you agree? Created by playwright, screenwriter and actor Steve Harper, and starring Tracie Thoms ("Annie," "Death Proof," "Looper" among many other film and TV roles), "Send Me" deals with a black woman (Thoms) who has the power to send black people back in time to slavery days. But Harper makes clear to point out that the people who do this in the series are doing it of their own free will:  “It’s not a punishment. They want to »

Review: Starry Eyes

9 October 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A blood-soaked cautionary tale about the price of fame and sacrificing your own identity in the name of ambition, Starry Eyes is yet another fantastic reminder that the indie genre world is truly the best (and generally only) place fans can find ambitious and challenging horror tales these days.

Starry Eyes follows Sarah (Alex Essoe), a young actress in Hollywood struggling to find her first break in the business. As she goes on audition after audition, Sarah receives nothing but rejection from casting agents until she shows up for a part in a mysterious indie horror movie. After she initially thinks she’s blown her chance at her ‘big break,’ Sarah explodes into another one of her violent fits of rage, something that impresses the talent scouts and garners the fresh-faced talent a special second audition with the studio’s head producer (Louis Dezseran).  After Sarah is asked to perform »

Jeff Daniels Takes a Top Post at Nasa in Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

3 October 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

This fall, Jeff Daniels steps away from the news desk on HBO with the third and final season of "The Newsroom" and gets stupid again in the comedy sequel Dumb & Dumber To. But next he'll next be taking a prestigious job at Nasa as THR reports the actor who has been seen in films such as Good Night and Good Luck and Looper has taken a role in Ridley Scott's developing sci-fi drama The Martian. The film follows Matt Damon as an astronaut who ends up stranded in a Martian colony and struggles to survive long enough to be able to make it back to Earth as Nasa tries to launch a rescue mission. So what is Daniels doing? Daniels will play the director of Nasa dealing with the crisis, likely a role akin to the Ed Harris role in Apollo 13, a role that he somewhat reprise in »

David Fincher Considered Directing 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

29 September 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

What would you think if David Fincher, and not J.J. Abrams, had been chosen as the director of Star Wars: Episode VIIc It's only a hypothetical looking back, but as Fincher tells Total Film, leading the new Star Wars trilogy wasn't entirely off the table. "I talked to Kathy Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm about it, but I think that it's a different thing from... I don't know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like," Fincher told the site. His apprehension makes sense, seeing as his long-in-development 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was pretty much shot down by Disney, which owns Lucasfilm. Earlier this month, Fincher observed in an interview with Little White Lies that, "You get over $200 million... all motion picture companies have corporate culture and corporate anxieties." Relating specifically to his shuttered maritime fantasy adventure, it sounds like it was very difficult for Fincher to appease the anxieties of Disney's corporate culture. »

Wonderful New Trailer for Predestination; is it this Year's Looper?

25 September 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

This super stylish new trailer for the Spierig brothers' new film, Predestination, has skyrocketed the film to the top of my most anticipated films list.

The story based on a Robert Heinlein short story sees Ethan Hawke as a time-travelling law man who must find a criminal through time and the no-frills style makes it seem like it could be up there with Rian Johnson's Looper in terms of quality.


The life of a time-traveling Temporal Agent. On his final assignment, he must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.

So far there is no release date, but the film has played in a few festivals to great reception.

Presestination also stars Noah Taylor and Sarah Snook.

Van Helsing Storyboards Reveal Unused Creature From The Black Lagoon Scene

24 September 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Universal Studios tried to revive their classic monsters with 2004's Van Helsing, which starred Hugh Jackman ("The Wolverine") and Kate Beckinsale ("Underworld"). It featured a bunch of monsters: vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein's monster. But there was another monster that was supposed to appear in the film - the Creature from the Black Lagoon (also known as Gill-man) . Sadly, the scene didn't make it into the film, but you can view the storyboards below that storyboard artist  Doug Brode ("Looper") worked on. For those of you not familiar, Gill-man was featured in the 1954 film the Creature from the Black Lagoon and its two sequels, Revenge of the Creature (1955) and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). Universal has made several attempts to reboot the franchise but they've been unsuccessful so far. Though, hope was renewed in July of this year when Universal hired Alex Kurtzman ("Star Trek Into Darkness")  and Chris »

VFX house Atomic Fiction has opened a new office in Montreal, a sister studio to the company’s home in Oakland, Calif.

Rian Johnson Talks "Star Wars" Freedom

19 September 2014 5:19 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's rarely more fun when filmmakers of a similar ilk interview each other. That was the cast this week when "Looper" director Rian Johnson star down with filmmaker Terry Gilliam on the latter's TalkHouse Podcast to talk about Johnson's next gig - "Star Wars: Episode VIII". He says things are still in the earliest stages right now:

"I'm just starting into it, but so far it's the most fun I've ever had writing. It's just joyous. The first movies I was making in my head were part of this world, so part of it is a direct connection - it's almost like an automatic jacking-in into childhood in a weird way.

I'm figuring it out as I go. I'm dancing on top of the avalanche a little bit. But it's a challenge of remembering what inspires you about the original films, but I think you can probably go to the »

Wish I Was Here: Zach Braff on his long-awaited Garden State follow-up

16 September 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Zach Braff cemented himself as a filmmaker to watch with his debut feature Garden State in 2004, but it's taken him a decade to make follow-up Wish I Was Here. So why the long wait? After initially searching for funding and full creative control within the studio system, the former Scrubs star turned to Kickstarter after feeling resistance from the industry who'd lavished praise on his first film.

Digital Spy caught up with Braff on the eve of Wish I Was Here's UK release to discuss his eagerly-awaited movie comeback...

After 10 years away from the director's chair, did he miss it?

"I really did. I directed episodes of Scrubs and I directed a pilot and some smaller things but I was really, really excited to direct another film. I just feel most at home directing a film, I just feel like I was made to do it. I'd wanted to »

Duncan Jones and Rian Johnson interested in directing Preacher episodes for AMC

15 September 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As we speak, writing, directing and producing duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad, This is the End) are hard at work on an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ 1990s graphic novel Preacher for AMC. Over the weekend, the two got into a discussion about the project over Twitter, and caught the attention of up-and-coming directors Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper).

Aint It Cool News’ Eric Vespe began the conversation by suggesting that Goldberg and Rogen cast Kurt Russell as the Saint of Killers on the show. Jones then jumped in, apparently a bit out of the loop since he’s been busy directing a little video game movie called Warcraft for Legendary pictures, and asked about the project. Check out their conversation below (courtesy of /Film):

Duncan Jones Is Game To Direct Some Episodes Of AMC's Preacher TV Series

15 September 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Over the weekend, Ain’t It Cool News‘ Eric Vespe tweeted Seth Rogen with the casting suggestion of Kurt Russell for the Saint Of Killer's role in Rogen and Evan Goldberg's small screen adaptation of the controversial DC Vertigo classic, Preacher. This led to Warcraft director Duncan Jones joining the conversation, and although a lot of the exchanges are clearly banter, it does sound like Jones is genuinely interested in getting involved: @ManMadeMoon @EricVespe @evandgoldberg TV show for AMC. Wanna direct some episodes? (I should note that we haven't finished a pilot script) — Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) September 12, 2014 @Sethrogen @EricVespe @evandgoldberg But in all seriousness... I'd eat my own arm off to do it. — Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) September 12, 2014 Then, after a fan suggested Rian Johnson (Looper) also try his hand at directing an ep or two, this happened: @EricVespe I've got 2 hands. @ThatJoeMeyers @Sethrogen @ManMadeMoon @evandgoldberg — Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) September »
