16 September 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than two months to go before Christopher Nolan’s latest film takes flight, Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. have dropped a new poster for Interstellar, which features Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) kitted out in a spacesuit…

Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Featuring in the cast of Interstellar are Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises), Jessica Chastain (The Help), Michael Caine (Inception), Mackenzie Foy (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn), Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games), Casey Affleck (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3), John Lithgow (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Bill Irwin (Lady in the Water), David Gyasi (Cloud Atlas), Ellen Burstyn (Requiem for a Dream), David Oyelowo (The Butler) and Matt Damon (Elysium »

Matthew McConaughey on Another World in New 'Interstellar' Poster

16 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following yesterday's awesome Poster Posse collection from Blurppy for this fall's release of Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan, an official poster from Paramount Pictures has debuted online. This one is a little more conventional as it merely shows Matthew McConaughey on another world, which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer for the film as well. Some think that the most recent trailer showed too much, but considering it's all out of context and a Nolan movie has never been spoiled by trailers, it shouldn't be anything to worry about. Could we get one more trailer before the release? We'll see. Here's the latest official poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from Empire: Watch the most recent trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar right here! Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. »

Peaky Blinders Season 2 Trailer & Photo Gallery

After the massive success of the BBC Series Peaking Blinders we’ve got the trailer for season 2. If you missed season 1, the show stars Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle and Joe Cole, and you could liken it to the British version of Boardwalk Empire (sort of!).

The Bottom Shelf: Frightfest, Faults and Killer Klowns

15 September 2014 12:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Indie horror Faults and Venezuelan chiller The House At The End Of Time are two of the films in this month's Bottom Shelf...

Summer holidays, barbecues on the beach and weekends decimated by relentless weddings: this is August for some. For other, more discerning types, it is about Frightfest, otherwise known as the chance to spend those rare sunny days ensconced in a darkened room for a horror movie marathon. This year’s Leicester Square event featured the usual mix of gonzo gore, copycat-killings and premiere screenings of future favourites; we managed to catch a few highlights.

The latest film from writer and director Riley Stearns (Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s husband, fact fans), Faults, received a European premiere last month. Massively enjoyable from start to finish, Stearns’ black comedy mostly eschews the genre necessity of scattergun bloody slayings in favour of an intelligent script focusing on the gaping voids left in desperate characters’ lives. »

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 »

10 Reasons Why Tom Hardy Is Unbearably Hot

14 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

We appreciate Tom Hardy as an actor. No really, it’s about his craft. We’re so excited to see his new movie, The Drop, a crime thriller co-starring James Gandolfini in his final role (his reviews have been ecstatic). Hardy’s range is crazy — he nails every role, whether he’s playing Queen Elizabeth’s dandy lover in BBC’s The Virgin Queen or the evil super-villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. We appreciate his talent and all, but honestly? He’s just hot.

Tom Hardy’s hot in a tough guy, take-me-or-leave-me way that most actors aren’t anymore. He has a dangerous background (drugs, arrests, guns, disorderly conduct) and an ambiguous sexuality (when Attitude magazine asked him if he’s slept with men, he said, “Of course. I’m an actor for fuck’s sake! I’ve played with everything and everyone”). He loves dogs and his son. »

Six memorable, unusual uses of 'The Star-Spangled Banner'

13 September 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This coming week brings the 200th birthday of The Star-Spangled Banner. It is, in addition to being notoriously hard to sing, the National Anthem of the United States of America. While the song is used for many different occasions—baseball games and elections and fireworks and War of 1812-themed frat parties—most of the time what happens during its performances is pretty consistent. Those who are sitting stand, those who wear hats remove them, and everyone sort of uncomfortably half sings along while looking for the nearest American flag. It’s that universal ritual that makes unusual uses of »

London in disguise: 7 times the capital doubled for another location

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

London's incredibly varied architecture - encompassing Shakespearean and Victorian-era buildings, secret underground tunnels and modern skyscrapers - has seen the city double for everything from 19th century Paris in Les Misérables to outer space in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Digital Spy takes a tour of the capital to find out more…

1. Millennium Bridge, Thames Embankment

We're used to seeing tourists snapping photos and commuters walking briskly across this distinctive bridge, but on August 12 last year, onlookers stopped and gasped as a group of exotically-attired aliens ran across the suspension bridge. This was no prank or stag do, but rather a scene from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which can currently be seen taking the international box office by storm. Incredibly, the bridge was doubling for outer space, albeit with a CGI generated backdrop to hide St Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern.

2. The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich

Tom Hardy Calls Filming 'This Means War' Miserable: I Felt Like an 'Other'

Don't expect to see Tom Hardy's softer side anytime soon.

Don't expect to see Tom Hardy's softer side anytime soon.

The Dark Knight Rises star revealed to USA Today that after filming the successful 2012 romantic comedy This Means War, also starring Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon, he's not interested in ever returning to that genre of cinema.

"I love to do things I hadn't done before," he said before going into his negative experience while working on This Means War. "I didn't understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it."

Hardy told the newspaper he felt like an "other," and because of that, expect to see him in more action roles. "I probably won't do a romantic comedy again, do you know what I mean?" he confessed.

Perhaps him staying away from romcoms will help this heartthrob »

10 Movies You Hated Before You Even Saw Them

12 September 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

Not to go all Matrix Reloaded on you, but film criticism is a great example of causality. You watch a film of a certain quality and you form an opinion. Cause (whether the film is good) and effect (what you think). Simple, right?

Unfortunately, sometimes it operates a bit differently; people form an opinion of a film before they see it, with the finished product itself having no impact on what they view on it. It’s the sort of thing that would drive The Merovingian insane.

This is where a fan-boy mentality comes from, with audiences fully prepared to overlook whatever a films flaws may be out of unconditional love for a property. But on the other side of the coin is people who go into a film already hating it. At least when people say they dislike The Dark Knight Rises or Man Of Steel, two »

The Drop – The Review

11 September 2014 8:51 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Smoky bars and rundown, vacant buildings are surrounded by cheap shacks that barely pass for homes… and I haven’t even begun to describe the people. But I think you can imagine the occupants in this universe. The film-noir genre has taken a journey into even seedier territory over the years. Gone are the days where you have fast-talking detectives and two-timing gals. Now we are treated to a world of cops and crime that is caked in a thick layer or dirt, grime, and blood. Films like Gone Baby Gone, Eastern Promises, The Town, Out Of The Furnace, and Killing Them Softly, all have recently focused on crime and corruption on the working-class level of society. Is “poor-noir” an apt description? What about “working-class noir?” At any rate, this is a trend that Belgian director Michael Roskam also explores with his new film The Drop. Roskam previously garnered a »

Tom Hardy Loves Dogs, Bonded With The Drop Puppies—See Photos of the Actor With His Furry Friends!

11 September 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What's the key to Tom Hardy's heart? Must love dogs. The 36-year-old British actor, who played the villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, and longtime partner Charlotte Riley have two dogs of their own. He also helps others find homes and bonds with dogs he works with. "Can't have any more for the moment," he said about his family pets in an interview with Vulture, which was posted on Wednesday. "And actually, they're a handful, two. But I love dogs. Like, A Lot. They're my favorite animal. Ever." Hardy's latest film, The Drop, the late James Gandolfini's final movie, features a pit bull named Rocco. Hardy was spotted last year cuddling with »

Poll: The Most Disappointing Movie Of 2014 So Far?

11 September 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's that time again, when I ask you which film didn't fulfill your hopes and expectations. In 2012, the majority of the votes went to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and last year, Shane Black's Iron Man 3 received the most votes. Which film will it be this year? Please remember, do not vote for a film that you haven't seen yet. Also, do not vote for the film that you thought was the worst, unless you were truly disappointed with it based on your expectations. As for me, I'll briefly share with you the three films from 2014 so far that I found to be most disappointing - in no particular order. I'll start with Transcendence, a film directed by first-time director Wally Pfister - Nolan's longtime cinematographer. My expectations were incredibly high as I had expected some of that Nolan magic might've rubbed off on Pfister but »

Tiff 2014: Five things we learned at The Drop's press conference

11 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

"The difference between noir and Shakespeare is the heights that they fall from," said screenwriter Dennis Lehane at the press conference for The Drop at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), Noomi Rapace (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), and Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust & Bone) star in Lehane's working class tragedy about a bartender who suddenly finds himself stuck in between the police and the Chechen mob.

The Drop is also the final appearance on film for the late, great James Gandolfini.

Here are five things we learned at the press conference for The Drop:

Dennis Lehane fleshed out one of his own short stories into a theatrical script, and yes, it's that Dennis Lehane. You've probably read a few of his books or at the very least seen some of the movies. Shutter Island, Gone Baby Gone, and Mystic River were all originally novels of The Drop's screenwriter. »

Tiff 2014: In voices sharp and soft, Tom Hardy sounds out

11 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

 

Think of Tom Hardy and what likely first comes to mind is his stout physical presence: his muscled mixed-martial arts fighter in Warrior or his hulking Batman villain, Bane, in The Dark Knight Rises.

But Hardy is, first and foremost, a talker. As he's developed as an actor, it's become increasingly clear how much voice plays a central role for Hardy. His characters are a richly varied assortment of vocalization. In two films this year, his verbal virtuosity is especially on display: the New York crime film The Drop, which opens Friday, and the earlier-released Locke, a drama almost entirely composed of Hardy talking on the phone while driving.

One is a mumbling mutterer, the other speaks with methodical precision. They couldn't sound more different, but in both cases, their speech entirely informs their character.

"The voice is a key silhouette, an audio silhouette," Hardy said in an interview shortly »
