While the partnership between Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater has led to some of the most satisfying films in recent art-house release, Hawke is also indulging his genre interests in many other pictures. In the recent past he’s done films like Sinister, Total Recall, The Purge and Daybreakers. Now he has reunited with Daybreakers filmmakers […]

The Vampire Diaries has offered up a steady stream of casting news this week, and they’re not done yet. Earlier today, the CW announced that former star of The Carrie Diaries, Chris Wood, has been cast in a recurring role for the upcoming season.
According to TV Guide, Wood will be playing a character name Kai, who is a charmingly unstable newcomer with the unsettling ability to seem normal as the situation demands. He can be both playful and obsessive with a mix of adolescent angst. Considering this is a show where vampires pretend to be normal humans on a daily basis, it seems like he’s going to do just fine. In fact, he may be the perfect candidate to join the supernatural club.
This comes on the heels of news that four other characters have been added for season six. Eureka’s Craig Ferguson will be playing »

According to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, the Vampire Diaries season 6 peeps have hired actress, Emily C. Chang (left), to come on and play a new girl, named Ivy, for recurring action. Ivy is described as being sweet and sincere. However, she will also display a secret wild side at some point. They say, she's "the quintessential girl next door with an unexpected wild side." Ivy is due to make her very first appearance in the premiere/episode 1. Emily C. Chang's acting credits include roles in Days of Our Lives and Total Recall. As previously reported, executive producer, Julie Plec, recently described season 6 as being a reset of sorts, stating: "The way we look at it, season six is a beautiful and organic reset. The theme of the season is everybody gets to start over. That's what we're going to do." Season 6 is due to premiere on Thursday night, »
A magnificent science fiction drama, and a beautiful one. Wonderfully radical for the simple fact that it is ruled by principled ideas. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
We need a bigger word than humanist.
That was a word I used to describe the lovely, honest, sensitive Rise of the Planet of the Apes — and god, did it feel good to be able to connect those words with a big-budget science fiction movie. But now it feels too small to encompass where Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes the ongoing story. People-ist is the first coinage that leaps to mind, clunky as it is. Because there are nonhumans here who are as fully people as the humans are… in fact, the story is very much about the humans coming to »

There's been an abundance of bland projects lately for the lovely Kate Beckinsale. With films like Total Recall, Contraband and Underworld: Awakening being the most recent films in her career, she needs to do some recovering. Perhaps she'll find relief in The Disappointments Room, a new project that Deadline reports Disturbia and Eagle Eye director D.J. Caruso will direct for Relativity Media. The film is described as being a psychological thriller in the same vein as The Shining, but the film sounds just like plenty of other horror films we've seen about a family moving into an old, haunted house with dark secrets. More below! The film is said to be inspired by real events as it tells the story of a couple and their five-year old son who move into their dream house, an old rural home with a secret room hidden in their attic. Beckinsale will play the »

Update: TheWrap adds that Taylor Kitsch, coming off strong reviews in HBO’s The Normal Heart, is also primed to snag a coveted lead role in True Detective. He’s apparently in contention with On the Road actor Garrett Hedlun but currently has the edge. TheWrap’s report also states that HBO was intent on landing a movie star, someone “rugged and gritty,” for the part Farrell ultimately received.
Original: At long last, the pieces are falling into place for the second season of HBO’s brilliant, game-changing True Detective, with word that Colin Farrell (In Bruges) is being eyed for one of four lead roles in the Nic Pizzolatto-created and scripted anthology series.
Deadline’s Mike Fleming has the scoop, saying that he can confirm Farrell is “deep in negotiations” to join the cast of the second season, which will begin filming later this year and is due »

In the dog days of summer, we sometimes feel very, very thirsty -- and not for a cool, refreshing beverage, but for any information about the upcoming second season of HBO's peerless mystery series "True Detective." So far we know that there will be four lead characters, that at least one of them will be a woman (here's hoping) and that the central mystery concerns the "secret occult history of the United States transportation system" (ohmygodsocool). But today we got our biggest bit of information yet, as it looks like HBO is zeroing in on two of the new season's leads. And yes, they are very impressive.
According to The Wrap, Colin Farrell is negotiating for the lead role in "True Detective" Season 2. According to the site, "HBO was intent on landing a true movie star," and apparently Farrell fills that role although god only knows when he had a true hit movie, »

I’m back! It’s been a long time and I apologise for that, moving house turned out to be a far far longer process than I anticipated or had been led to believe. Three weeks turned into six, six weeks turned into three months and now here we are.
Aside from the length of time it takes, moving house was a real eye opener in other areas too. Specifically in terms of how I inform you week on week of all of this wonderful content available to stream and then how you have to put up with lacklustre delivery from various ISPs. I was living in someone else’s house on a connection that was not my own, not wanting to name names but there is one of the big three ISP’s in the UK which boasts about having one of, if not the, fastest broadband delivery on »

Deadline is reporting that Aussie actress Teresa Palmer is in talks to join Edgar Ramirez (who recently replaced Gerard Butler) and Luke Bracey in Alcon’s upcoming Point Break remake. Though we don’t have specifics on her role just yet (I imagine she’ll play a love interest), we do know that it is the female lead. We also know that the film will follow a young FBI agent (Bracey) who must go undercover to take down an organized gang of criminals, led by Ramirez’s character, and that the story will be set against the backdrop of extreme sports.
For those who haven’t been keeping up, the remake will be helmed by Ericson Core (Invincible) and has a script from Kurt Wimmer (the Total Recall remake). If that doesn’t inspire much confidence, we don’t blame you. Nothing about this remake really sounds terribly appealing to us, »

First of all, it’s easy to negate remakes or reboots and wax lyrical about their purpose or the advantages of having a new angle but what it always comes down to, beyond anything, is the story and how it tries to tell and achieve it – regardless of originals.
In Robocop (2014), we’ve jumped out of the gritty, violent late 80s and delved into the paranoia of nearly 30 years later, where the world is a lot more aware but evidently just as concerned over things beyond their control. While Jose’s Robocop tries to tell a story »

The past few years have produced a large number of bad remakes and sequels. "Robocop," "Total Recall," "Carrie" were all rotten remakes, while "Promethius" and "The Dark Knight Rises" were just a couple of the horrible sequels. All in all, Hollywood's done a bad job lately with its various franchises .. What Worked ... thus the commercial for the new "Godzilla" remake filled me with hope -- the wonderful actors (Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe), awesome looking special effects, complete with paratroopers attacking Godzilla -- and a monster clearly intent on smashing up cities, all made for a great trailer. The music was good. What Didn't Work So imagine my shock when the actual film featured about 10 minutes of the title character, which, instead of being a terrifying »
