Thanks to the Daily Mail and user Cdndutchie#74 over on Flickr we're gifted with a number of new behind the scenes production snaps from Gareth Edwards' large lizard reboot 'Godzilla'. The new selection of images features a destroyed fishing village as well as terrified Japanese school children running for their lives against a large blue screen. Leaves me wondering if in fact the big 'G' is just a clumsy misunderstood reptile more than a mindless oversized beast keen on wreaking havoc. Aaron Taylor-Johnson ('Kick-Ass 2'), Elizabeth Olsen ('Silent House'), Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins ('Made in Dagenham'), David Strathairn ('Lincoln'), Ken Watanabe ('Inception'), Richard T. Jones ('Event Horizon'), Patrick Sabongui, Yuki Morita, Brian Markinson, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk and Bryan Cranston ('Breaking Bad') all face the scary scaled bastard in some form or another. »
Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is shaping up to be one of the big hitters next Summer and another new fresh faced member of the team has tacked himself on to the cast list. The director has revealed on Twitter that the character Quicksilver has been added and that 'American Horror Story' star Evan Peters has been cast in the role. The news is quite surprising particularly as Joss Whedon recently announced that Quicksilver, the mutant offspring of Magento (played by Michael Fassbender), would in fact be part of the line-up for his upcoming sequel to 'The Avengers'. The time-travelling 'X-Men' sequel features a whole host of returning franchise stars that include Hugh Jackman ('Les Miserables'), Nicholas Hoult ('Warm Bodies'), Ian McKellen ('The Hobbit'), Jennifer Lawrence ('House at the End of the Street'), James McAvoy ('Wanted'), Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin »
Mumbai, May 24: Actors Arjun Rampal and Irrfan, who play Raw agents in Nikhil Advani's forthcoming thriller "D-Day", trained with Hollywood stunt director Tom Struthers for real action sequences in the film. Arjun calls him the "backbone" of the movie.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has seen his star steadily rise over the last decade, shedding the child star image he gained from his role in 3rd Rock From the Sun in indie features such as Brick and Mysterious Skin before transitioning to blockbuster features such as Inception and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The 2013 Sundance Film Festival, however, saw Gordon-Levitt show a new side of himself, as he premiered his feature length filmmaking debut. Titled Don Jon, Gordon-Levitt takes on directing, writing, and starring duties, appearing onscreen alongside Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, Brie Larson, and Rob Brown. The first trailer for this movie has now been released, and can be seen below.

Baby-faced Joseph Gordon-Levitt has basically grown up in front of the camera, from TV's "3rd Rock From the Sun" to plum movie roles in everything from indies like Brick to (500) Days of Summer and Inception but now Jgl has taken a new step in an already-impressive career and has written and directed his first movie and we're finally getting a glimpse of his debut.
Don Jon stars Jgl as a Jersey pretty boy meat head, concerned with, in the order outlined in the first trailer, his body, his pad, his family, his church, his boys, his girls....and his porn. In the preview, we see him working on or with all of the above, sporting tank tops alongside his on-screen father Tony Danza, hitting the gym, watching sports with male friends and courting the gum-chewing girl that may change him yet, Scarlett Johansson. Ah yes, but then there's that porn he mentioned. »

Now that Warner Bros.’ television and home entertainment divisions have been re-aligned, all eyes are focused on whether newly installed CEO Kevin Tsujihara will implement a similar management shakeup at the studio’s motion picture operation.
The fate of the movie group’s top executive, Jeff Robinov, is on the minds of those both inside and outside the Burbank lot. Despite his skills as a seasoned creative executive and a summer lineup of potential blockbusters that’s the envy of his rivals, Robinov, 54, has made some major missteps that raise questions about his leadership.
When he learned in late January that he hadn’t landed the CEO job at Warner Bros., the executive did something unthinkable: He yelled at and hung up the phone on his boss, Barry Meyer, after the WB honcho delivered the bad news to him the night before the announcement of Tsujihara’s promotion was made public. »

Daily Mail writer Baz Bamigboye says Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are in talks with Christopher Nolan and his people for the 24th installment in the James Bond series. While it's still very early, Nolan might have a conflict issue as he is set to be filming his next big film Interstellar soon. That being said Nolan had no problem in directing both The Prestige and Inception between installments of his Dark Knight franchise. Speaking of Inception, Nolan was actually quoted in an article back in 2011 as saying the Bond films were a huge influence on the film and even went on to say this:
I’ve loved the Bond films since I was a kid. For me, they’re always about the expansiveness of cinema. The first Bond films set up infinite possibilities about the world they create. I’d love to do a Bond film. »

Christopher Nolan is the name that pops up whenever nerds talk about revamping or reinvigorating a dark, action-based film franchise, but in the case of James Bond, it's warranted. The director, an admitted Bond nerd, has discussed the series' influence on his Batman films. "That globe-trotting thing, that idea of trying to get you along for a ride, that was very much a jumping-off point cinematically [for the Dark Knight trilogy]," he said last year. Inception also featured a nod to classic Bond in the ski-chase sequence that referenced 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service. After the smashing success of Bond 23, Skyfall, many assumed director Sam Mendes would sign on for another go-round. A few months ago, Mendes announced he wouldn't be...

Please stop joy crying. There are some things to discuss first.
Yes, it's true. Some publication out there (specifically Daily Mail) has reported something to the tune of "Christopher Nolan has had informal talks with Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson about directing 'Bond 24.' "
This isn't isn't coming out of left field. Nolan has filled his recent films, "Inception" and "The Dark Knight Rises" especially, with references to 007, and he has previously expressed interested in eventually directing a film. He told Empire, "It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things."
But there are a few problems with this report.
The main problem right now is timing. Nolan is pretty much in full "Interstellar" mode. He has already cast his principles, Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, and he's got a late 2014 release date on the books. That's a quick turnaround for »

If there's one thing that is very, very, very clear, it's that “Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan loves James Bond. Ever since he decided to do massive movies, he has included sequences that could have been lifted directly from one of the dashing adventures of Britain's most suave superspy. Nolan knows how to mimic James Bond set pieces in tone and intensity. There's the Hong Kong sequence from “The Dark Knight,” the whole third act of “Inception” (with the snow fort, which seems to have been a hodgepodge lift of various Bond tropes), and the opening sequence of “The Dark Knight Rises,” which had more jaw-dropping spectacle than all of “Quantum of Solace” combined. Now, Nolan may get his chance to do a 007 entry himself. According to the UK paper the Daily Mail (so please, find the biggest grain of salt you can and take it), “informal talks have begun »

The Internet will be drooling over the prospect of Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) directing James Bond 24. He's talked of his love for the franchise in the past, paying direct homage to On Her Majesty's Secret Service in Inception and the influence it had on his Batman trilogy and now Baz Bamigboye at The Daily Mail reports Nolan is in "informal talks" with Bond producers to direct the next installment in the franchise. Nolan has said he would like to do a Bond film at some point in his career, but he's also recently been quoted by Empire (via The Playlist) saying, "It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things." His next film, Interstellar, is ramping up to begin filming shortly for a 2014 release, which would mean he'd have to quickly turnaround and begin work on Bond 24 to meet »
