18 July 2014 11:05 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

'Skyfall' Star Ben Whisaw Replacing Colin Firth as 'Paddington' Voice

18 July 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last month, following the debut of the very British teaser trailer for the upcoming family holiday release of Paddington, about the bear, we learned that Colin Firth would not be providing the voice of the title bear due to "conscious uncoupling." But now the film has a grand replacement as The Daily Mail has learned that Skyfall and Cloud Atlas star Ben Whishaw will lend his voice to the film instead. Much like Firth, Whishaw wasn't sure it was for him, "I resisted a little bit, because I had a bad experience doing this kind of work in the past and I thought I was no good at it. But I was persuaded to go, slightly grudgingly." Read on! Producer David Heyman explained, "Colin was brilliant, but his voice was, ultimately, too mature." And Whishaw is certainly a younger voice, and just recalling some of his lines in Skyfall and »

Ben Whishaw Replaces Colin Firth As Voice Of Paddington

18 July 2014 4:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This winter’s Paddington has received our attention for all the wrong reasons so far. First, there was that terrifying image of the film’s stuffed bear that sparked the hilarious Creepy Paddington meme. Then, The Weinstein Company released a disappointing first trailer for the movie that made it appear to be a spiritual – albeit less gratingly non-musical – cousin to Alvin and the Chipmunks, of all things. Finally, we learned that Colin Firth, who had previously been set to voice Paddington, had dropped out of the project mid-way through production. Luckily for TWC though, it doesn’t appear that the film will be delayed, as Skyfall actor Ben Whishaw has just been set to lend his voice to the animated bear.

Though the British actor is certainly less of a household name than Firth, Whishaw’s star has been steadily rising over the past few years. He’s won fans »

Ben Whishaw replaces Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington

17 July 2014 11:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A month ago Academy Award winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) dropped out of Paul King’s adaptation of the beloved children’s book Paddington, saying that he no longer felt that his voice fit the part. His departure came just a few months before the iconic British bear’s winter release date, meaning King and co. needed to find a new voice actor quickly.

According to The Daily Mail, they’ve found their replacement: Skyfall and Cloud Atlas actor Ben Whishaw.

Producer David Heyman noted that Firth’s voice was “ultimately, too mature” for the part of Paddington, so Whishaw, who’s twenty years younger than Firth, should fit the bill nicely.

Whishaw told the Daily Mail that he had “no relationship to Paddington whatsoever” before being asked “quite out of the blue” to audition for the part, but in the grand scheme of »

Star Wars: Episode VII

Rising actress Christina Chong has reportedly scored unspecified roles in both J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" and Sergio Mimica-Gezzan's upcoming digital project "Halo: Nightfall".

Chong is a veteran of British TV, having starred in the likes of "Monroe," "Line of Duty," "Whitechapel" and "Doctor Who". She most recently appeared in "24: Live Another Day." [Source: Latino Review]

Venom

Alex Kurtzman has pretty much confirmed his old partner's comments from earlier this week that Sony remains undecided about the future of the Spider-Man franchise, namely its spin-offs, at the moment with everything still uncertain:

"Everybody is still figuring it out. It’s all up for grabs, right now. We’re just trying to figure it out. Everything is still on the table, right now. Because it’s a universe outside of the Spider-Man universe, even though it’s connected to it, those movies have to stand on their own. »

Tammy movie review: women behaving badly

3 July 2014 5:40 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Dumb, pointless, unentertaining crap. But at least it’s about women. Yay? Nah. I’m “biast” (pro): love Melissa McCarthy

I’m “biast” (con): …but despair that she will ever get a film worthy of her talent

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Well, it’s a step in the right direction. I suppose. A tiny one.

Goddammit. *sigh*

There are a lot of women onscreen in Tammy. In the same way that most movies feature a ton of men onscreen doing stupid shit for an hour and half with only occasional interruptions from women. That’s what Tammy is. It’s dumb, pointless, unentertaining crap. But at least it’s about women.

Yay?

What does Tammy (Melissa McCarthy: The Heat, The Hangover Part III) want? She’s the central character of this aimless collection of random, supposedly comedic setpieces, and we have no idea who she is. »

February the New Mayc

Warner Bros. has released a "new" trailer for Jupiter Ascending, new in that it now says it's coming out in February 2015 rather than July. I can only assume this is to ensure no one gets confused, but just imagine if it meant long lead marketing for all February films in the future.

Plot and Cast Revealed for the Wachowskis' Netflix Series SENSE8

23 June 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last year it was announced that the The Wachowskis (The Matrix, Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas) and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, Thor, Underworld Awakening) would be teaming up with Netflix to develop a new series called Sense8. Up to this point all that we've know about the show is that it was developed from a conversation about "the ways technology simultaneously unites and divides us." It's also been described as "a gripping tale of minds linked and souls hunted.”

Thanks to Deadline, we now have a lot more information on the ten episode series, including the large cast and details on the plot. 

Naveen Andrews (Lost), Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), and Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe) are among a 14-member international cast. As for the story, the following information comes from  Straczynski, who is the showrunner:

“The series follows eight characters around the world who, in the aftermath of a tragic death, find themselves linked to each other mentally and emotionally,” states Straczynski. “They can not only see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, they have access to each other’s deepest secrets. Not only must they figure out what happened and why and what it means for the future of humanity, they must do so while being hunted by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them.”

21 June 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Filmmakers Andy and Lana Wachowski have had a rough couple of years, after the disappointing Matrix sequels and a handful of flops like Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas. While they have retained their reputation as unique and visionary filmmakers, they’ve failed to garner much commercial success.

Luckily, they have Netflix’s original series Sense8 up their sleeves, and new details about the 10-episode science fiction epic have finally arrived.

In typical Wachowski fashion, Sense8 will be a globe-trotting sci-fi drama, filled with psychological themes and mind-bending storylines. It also sports a massive 14-member international cast, which we now know consists of Lost alum Naveen AndrewsKill Bill’s Daryl Hannah, Stargate Universe’s Brian J.

Sprawling Cast Unveiled For The Wachowski’s Netflix Sci-Fi Show ‘Sense8’; Plot Details Emerge

21 June 2014 6:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Are the Wachowsksi siblings over or in trouble? Does the bumping of their next sci-fi blockbuster, “Jupiter Ascending” – which was recently delayed from a prime summer slot, to a less admired February release – mean they’re headed for another flop? That would mean three in a row, right? “Speed Racer” certainly wasn’t a hit, “Cloud Atlas” didn’t exactly light up the box-office and now “Jupiter Ascending” and its release date shift doesn’t bode well. This is a conversation (semi-argument) that Playlister Kevin Jagernauth and I are constantly having: how many flops are the siblings going to be allowed before someone puts the kibosh on their big expensive spectacles. Kevin’s take is here (he contends they may be in trouble or at least raises the possibility). I’m more of the mind that Hollywood isn’t risk averse. The mentality is always go big or go home »

Can Warner Bros. Avoid Another Wachowski Misfire?

17 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. stunned Hollywood when it pushed the release of “Jupiter Ascending” by seven months — a move that seemed abrupt, but had been debated by the studio for nearly six weeks as the Channing Tatum-Mila Kunis science-fiction epic’s box office prospects dimmed. Delaying a movie’s release is no easy decision, since it adds millions of dollars in interest and other completion costs to the budget and creates negative buzz that is hard to shake. But it can be even more costly and potentially deadly to roll out such a pricey pic, already laden with a production budget of $175 million, before it’s ready.

That became abundantly apparent when Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and international distribution, and other execs saw the latest version of the picture — which had already gone through minor reshoots in January and again three months later to clarify plot points.
