Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson), Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) and new addition Lula (Lizzy Caplan) — mount a meticulously planned surprise appearance, in hopes of exposing corrupt tech tycoon Owen Case (Ben Lamb).
But their scheme backfires, exposing Dylan’s involvement with the Horsemen and sending all five of them back on the run. To regain »

This week, Neil Calloway looks forward to the former boy band star appearing in Christopher Nolan’s next film…
This week the first set photos of Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming war film Dunkirk emerged, as well as the news that Tom Hardy had signed up to appear in the film. He joins a cast that includes Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy and Harry Styles.
There was some dissent when Styles – better known as a member of One Direction than an actor – was announced as part of the cast. It’s an unusual move, but it’s exactly the sort of thing that Christopher Nolan does.
While Nolan obviously has a regular troupe of actors he uses in different films – Murphy, Hardy, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale have all appeared in his films more than once – he also makes some unexpected casting choices.
Nolan has a habit of resurrecting the »

Ever the evangelist of practical effects over digital, director Christopher Nolan rallies a small army of troops in the latest set photos for World War II epic Dunkirk, with the pictures above showcasing thousands of extras decked out in infantry garb with massive artillery props to boot.
Shooting on location in northern France – on the very same beach where Allied forces staged the rescue mission known as Operation Dynamo, no less – it’s understood that Dunkirk will also set up shop in Holland and Los Angeles in the coming months, as Warner Bros. aligns Nolan’s feature for a primetime release in July of next year.

[Spoiler Alert: Don't read any further if you have yet to see the movie.]
"X-Men: Apocalypse" owes a lot to "X-Men: First Class." Especially its ending.
After hijacking the world's nuclear arsenal and assembling his Four Horsemen, Alpha mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Issac) uses Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and a swirl of CG to literally build a new world from what's left of the humanity's old one. And after several punch-happy attempts to physically stop Apocalypse, Professor X must battle him in the psychic realm.
This type of showdown is one fans of the comics and the '90s animated series have been dying to see for years. In fact, as James McAvoy revealed exclusively in an interview with Moviefone, audiences almost saw a version of this fight in his first "X-Men movie.
"We had a mind battle written into 'First Class,' between [Charles] and Emma Frost, and it was fairly epic -- and cataclysmic," McAvoy said. He elaborated that the battle between the two mutants »

Nolan, no stranger to complicated lavish productions such as co-writing and producing many of his brother Chris Nolan's films like his "Dark Knight" trilogy and "Inception," has done a lengthy interview with io9 and says nothing he's done - not even the demanding schedule of a CBS procedural like "Person of Interest" which he created - quite compares to this series:
"Nothing that I have done prepared me for the sheer avalanche [of production requirements]. The truth is, what we're doing there is a 10-hour movie. It's not really a TV series. When they say 'It's not TV, it's HBO,' they're really not kidding.
We're doing a period Western, and a science fiction [movie]. Basically, we're shooting Alien, Days of Heaven and Unforgiven simultaneously, »

With filming on Doctor Strange officially wrapped, and the first trailer having been released, we are finally starting to get a better picture of what we can expect from the film when it debuts this November. Cinelinx looks at what we know, what we hope for and what we expect from the movie debut of the master of the mystic arts, as played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Doctor Stephen Strange is one of Marvel Comics oldest characters, having been created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in Strange Tales # 110, back in July 1963. He was inspired by earlier magician characters like Mandrake and Chandu. His appearance was based on legendary horror film star Vincent Price. Dr. Strange has been a big part of many major Marvel storylines over the past 53 years. Stephen Strange is Marvel’s ‘Sorcerer Supreme’, also known as the master of the mystic arts.

Ever since it was announced on the day before Halloween last year, the Lady in White (1988) Blu-ray has been highly anticipated by fans of the cult classic. Originally scheduled to come out this spring before being slated for a June 21st debut, Scream Factory has now announced a later release date for the Blu-ray, although it sounds like it will be well worth the wait.
Scream Factory revealed on Facebook that the Lady in White Blu-ray is now set to hit shelves on August 30th. The film’s writer and director, Frank Laloggia, is helping to prep the home media release and some extra time is needed to get the best possible version ready for fans.
Below, we have the official announcement from Scream Factory, as well as the synopsis and trailer for those unfamiliar with the Halloween horror film.

Filmmaker and self-pronounced cinephile Jacob T. Swinney has a new video essay called 100 Years/100 Shots. The title’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s about the history of Tequila in the 21st century.
Swinney has chosen his most memorable shot from each year in the last 100 and placed them next to each other in chronological sequence. Not only does it fascinatingly chart the evolution of the medium, it also reaffirms why we devote so much of our spare time to the movies. See beneath the video embed below for the full list (in order) used.

By now, we've all heard that Marvel Studios plans on going in new and strange directions with their slates for Phases 3 and 4. While they've been criticized for being somewhat safe for the last few years, Kevin Feige and the folks at Marvel look like they want to switch things up. The first big indication of that was the dark, humor-free, Inception-esque trailer for Doctor Strange. Now screenwriter C. Robert Carghill is letting the world know that the trailer was nothing compared to what the film is going to end up being. He also shed some light on exactly how far Marvel was willing to stray from its own beaten path.
On the teaser:
"This teaser is, it’s the definition of a teaser. You are only getting a like as mall taste of just how crazy this movie gets. We have only just the slightest hints of magic in there. »
