Joel Edgerton Has Big Plans For Uncle Owen In Star Wars

9 October 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Joel Edgerton has forged out a pretty impressive Hollywood career for himself. The Australian thespian has appeared in the likes of Animal Kingdom, Warrior, Zero Dark Thirty and The Great Gatsby to critical acclaim. But for Star Wars fans he will always be thought of as Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.s Owen Lars. And now turns out that Edgerton has pretty big plans if Uncle Owen is included in a possible spin-off Obi-Wan movie... but only if he can be more than a "nerdy moisture farmer." Edgerton explained to ComingSoon.net that the Owen in Episode IV had "been through some shit," and it became clear that the idea of an Obi-Wan solo film might find room for Edgerton's character. As the conversation continued, the actor became more enthused, and he even declared: Okay, we.re gonna talk about this. This is a necessary addition »

Review: DirecTV's 'Kingdom' takes a swing at Mma drama

8 October 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the third episode of "Kingdom," DirecTV's new drama series set in the world of mixed martial arts, one of the main characters gives an impromptu boxing lesson to his often-bullied roommate. When the roommate is reluctant to punch him in the face, our hero cheerfully insists, "Look, I get punched in the face for a living. This is not going to hurt me." This is the most important thing to note about the men of "Kingdom," whether their storylines directly involve Mma or not. In a tumultuous world, being hit, and hitting back, is the one constant in their lives — and not just when they're in the cage. When a problem presents itself, their first, second and third impulse is to clench their fists and find a way to punch back. Created by Byron Belasco, "Kingdom" is DirecTV's latest attempt to use its Audience Network (the first episode debuts »

DirecTV’s ‘Kingdom’ Star Matt Lauria on the Life of an Mma Fighter, ‘Parenthood’ Return

8 October 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Kingdom,” DirecTV’s latest original series, is unlike anything currently on TV. While the brutal and kinetic fight sequences are most reminiscent of Tom Hardy’s 2011 mixed martial arts pic “Warrior,” the compelling ensemble and thorny character dynamics — set against the backdrop of the professional Mma circuit — evoke memories of another drama where the sports took a backseat to character evolution: the short-lived but much-beloved “Friday Night Lights” (which was co-produced by DirecTV in its final three seasons). Another commonality between the two shows is Matt Lauria, who played Luke Cafferty in seasons four and five of “Fnl,” and whose troubled new character, Ryan Wheeler, is miles removed from the mild-mannered farm boy who stole fans’ hearts while playing for the East Dillon Lions.

Variety spoke to Lauria ahead of “Kingdom’s” Oct. 8 premiere to learn more about what makes his character tick, Ryan’s relationship with Mma coach Alvey »

'Kingdom' creator on crafting a gritty family drama in the Mma world

8 October 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When Byron Balasco tells people that his new show Kingdom is about Mixed Martial Arts, their response tends to be, "Oh, so it's a reality show?" It's not a wild notion, considering that we live in a world with very few (if any) scripted shows about Mma. But for Balasco, the idea never seemed far-fetched. "I had been a fan of Mma for years and years and years, way back even before it became what it is, like 10-12 years ago even," Balasco said. "And it always seemed like a great place to set a show because it's such an interesting cross-section of characters. »

Bravest Warriors #25 Develops Catbug as a Character

7 October 2014 8:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bravest Warriors #25

Written by Kate Leth

Art by Ian McGinty

Colors by Lisa Moore

Published by Boom!

In Bravest Warriors #25, Kate Leth and Ian McGinty take a break from their ongoing storyline to add depth to Catbug’s mythos and introduce a new character, Bugcat. Bugcat is a palette swapped version of Catbug, who has his mischievousness, but lacks his cute charm and sense of humor. Leth and McGinty give Catbug some time on his own and show what he gets up to when he’s not being adorable around the Bravest Warriors. Leth delves into Catbug’s emotional life and reveals that he does have the true makings of a hero even if he killed Jelly Kid and completely failed at leadership in “Catbug’s Away Team”. Ian McGinty has a deft touch with facial expressions and reaction panels in the opening scene which features an ersatz version of Cards Against Humanity, »

Universal Brings The Purge: Anarchy Home to DVD/Bluray On October 21st

5 October 2014 1:51 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The Purge: Anarchy

Some horror fans were somewhat let down by 2013’s James DeMonaco-helmed The Purge and the lack of being in the middle of the plot’s carnage. Blumhouse & Platinum Dunes listened to those fans and brought this year’s sequel, The Purge: Anarchy, a balls out, completely entertaining film featuring one intense performance by Warrior and The Grey‘s Frank Grillo as a man on a mission of revenge. While some viewers felt the film’s political themes might have been a little too in your face, others felt the opposite and felt that it was quite important. Either way, one thing can’t be denied: it’s one hell of a horror/action-thriller film that is just as good with repeat viewings (I’ve seen it twice thus far).

Universal is set to bring The Purge: Anarchy home on October 21st in A Bluray/DVD Combo, »

DirecTV’s ‘Kingdom’ Explores the Men and Women Who Never Run from a Fight

2 October 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Muscle Beach appropriately hosted the Wednesday night premiere of “Kingdom,” a brutal and beefed up new Mma-centered drama from DirecTV’s Audience Network.

Creator/Ep Byron Balasco talked about how his Mma fandom, even before the sport approached mainstream popularity, helped inspire the show.

“I’ve always been interested in the world (of Mma), I’ve been a fan of the sport for years going back to 12 or 13 years ago,” Balasco said. “What fascinated me most is that fighting and violence is something we all run from 99 percent of the time. So I was really interested in what makes these guys do this, for relatively little financial reward, and little safety net.”

Balasco emphasized that the series is not a fight-a-week show, and that while the physicality and violence of the Mma world sets the stage for the drama, the episodes are driven by the characters and family drama. Star Frank Grillo, »

Ben Affleck in Negotiations to be 'The Accountant'... Who's Also an Assassin

1 October 2014 4:57 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Accountancy this past spring and am back in school until next May getting my Master's degree in the subject, and if there's one thing I've noticed in the world of film about my future profession it's that it isn't strongly represented. There are only a few memorable movie accountants, and the majority are portrayed as boring or bumbling, never bad-ass, but it looks like Batman himself has come along to bring a little justice to the situation. Ben Affleck is in talks to star in an upcoming action thriller over at Warner Bros. called The Accountant, which centers on a man who is a mild-mannered accountant by day, deadly assassin by night. Affleck is a busy man as of late, starring in David Fincher's Gone Girl, which hits theaters this Friday, as well as playing a well-known masked vigilante in the upcoming »

Ben Affleck May Lead 'The Accountant' Thriller for Warner Bros. Next

1 October 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After directing the Best Picture winning Argo for Warner Bros., it seems like actor and filmmaker Ben Affleck is getting comfortable over there. His next directing gig is supposed to be Live by Night at the studio whenever he's done with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (also at Warner Bros.), and now he's lining up another starring role over there too. Variety reports Affleck is currently in talks to lead the action thriller The Accountant, based on an original script by Bill Dubuque, the man responsible for writing The Judge staring Robert Downey Jr. Warrior director Gavin O'Connor is the studio's top choice to direct too. The project has been kicking around various studios for years. Sony once had a version in the works with Will Smith, but before that the project was at Warner Bros. to begin with and had Mel Gibson attached to direct. Now Affleck has unearthed it again, »

Ben Affleck Targets Action Thriller 'The Accountant'

1 October 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Ben Affleck's Gone Girl hitting theaters this weekend and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice still in production, the actor is in talks to star in Warner Bros.' action-thriller The Accountant.

Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) is considered the studio's top choice to direct, although an official offer hasn't been made yet. The script was written by Bill Dubuque (The Judge), which follows a mild-mannered accountant who also moonlights as a deadly assassin.

The project has been floating in development for several years, with Warner Bros. first developing it as a directorial vehicle for Mel Gibson. Sony Pictures picked up the project, with Will Smith once attached to star, but it was put back into turnaround after the studio couldn't put together the right package to move forward. Sources indicate that Ben Affleck recently caught wind of the project and thought it would be a "nice change of pace »

Ben Affleck To Star In Assassin Pic 'The Accountant' Plus Watch New Clip From 'Gone Girl'

1 October 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Mel Gibson and Will Smith couldn't make it happen, but it looks like Ben Affleck can. The world's next Batman, and this weekend's murder suspect in David Fincher's "Gone Girl," is looking to book one more acting gig before he gets back behind the camera to direct "Live By Night." Variety reports that Affleck is in negotiations to star in "The Accountant." The 2011 Black List script by Bill Dubuque (Robert Downey Jr.'s forthcoming "The Judge"), tells the story of a brilliant, autistic accountant at the Treasury Department who doubles as an assassin. There's no director attached at the moment, but apparently Gavin O'Connor ("Warrior," "Jane Got A Gun") is the "top choice" though he has no offer just yet. So, Affleck would wrap his work on "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice," bounce over to "The Accountant" and then direct "Live By Night" starting next »

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Trailer #2: God is Greater Than Pharaohs

1 October 2014 7:51 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

With Exodus: Gods and Kings, director Ridley Scott (Gladiator) is attempting to retell the biblical story of Moses leading the Israelites on the exodus out of Egyptian slavery; a story that has been told and re-told cinematically each and every Easter, in the form of the 1956 film, The Ten Commandments.

In this new version of the story, actors Christian Bale (Dark Knight) and Joel Edgerton (Warrior) take over the roles of Moses and Rameses II, which were famously played by Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner in Ten Commandments. If you’ve seen that older film (or any of the previous trailers for this film), then you know the basic layout of the story is still the same: Moses and Rameses start out as brothers; Moses learns he is destined to be leader of the Israelites; God delivers prophecies of Israelite freedom and Egyptian ...

Liam Neeson Eyes 'Tell No One' Remake & Channing Tatum Is 'Struck By Genius'

18 September 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Moving along in fits and starts for years now, the remake/re-adaptation of "Tell No One" — based on the book by Harlan Coben, and turned into an excellent 2006 thriller by Guillaume Canet — has had some big names check it out. Ben Affleck was attached to direct for a while, and last year "Warrior" and "Pride & Glory" director Gavin O'Connor was linked for the job. But now, the project is being looked at by someone who knows what it's like to have someone taken from them. (Sorry, had to). Liam Neeson is being wined and dined to take the lead role in the movie, which has Chris Terrio ("Argo," "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice") penning the script. The simple yet effective plotline follows a doctor who, after his wife vanishes, is at first suspected of having murdered her, but then begins to receive clues that she may in fact still be alive. »

Why Tom Hardy Will Probably Never Make Another Romantic Comedy

14 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tom Hardy is best known for his serious work, be it turning up the drama in features like Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or just turning into a full-blown monster, as seen in movies like Bronson and The Dark Knight Rises. That said, two years ago he decided to branch out with a bit of lighter fare and tried doing a romantic comedy. What's unfortunate is that the experience has sworn him off the genre for the foreseeable future. This bit of knowledge was dropped by Tom Hardy in a recent interview with USA Today during the Toronto International Film Festival, where the actor was promoting his new movie The Drop, based on the novel and adapted by Dennis Lehane. During the conversation, Hardy revealed that he likes challenging himself by taking on projects unlike those he's tried before, but that his experiment doing the 2012 McG film This Means »

Tom Hardy says he's done with romantic comedies thanks to This Means War

12 September 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Tom Hardy has done everything from sports drama (Warrior) to sci-fi (Inception), however there's one genre the actor isn't planning on returning to anytime soon: romantic comedies. In an interview with USA Today, Hardy said "I love to do things I hadn't done before," which may explain why he starred in McG's This Means War. But Hardy goes on to say he didn't enjoy working on the film, and because of that, doesn't think »

Tom Hardy Says He'll Never Do Another Romantic Comedy Again Thanks To 'This Means War'

11 September 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tom Hardy's greatest attribute is his willingness to try anything and knock it out of the park. It's hard to believe the same actor who stormed the screen in Nicolas Winding Refn's "Bronson" spent 90 minutes on the phone in Steven Knight's "Locke." This weekend, the actor plays a weary Brooklynite in "The Drop," and on the horizon he's got roles ranging from badass post-apocalyptic warrior in next summer's "Mad Max: Fury Road" to Stalin-era soldier in "Child 44." Hardy mixes genres and characters with ease, but there's one thing you won't see him again anytime soon: a romantic comedy. Coming between "Warrior" and "Lawless," the actor reached for the studio rom-com ring with "This Means War," directed by McG and co-starring Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon. Met with dreadful reviews, the movie actually legged it out to a $150 million worldwide take (thank you international audiences), but was considered a. »
