The 2013-14 primetime season is starting to take shape, with Fox handing out series orders to four dramas.
The new entrants encompass a legal vehicle toplined by Greg Kinnear, two cop shows — one set 35 years in the future, the other among present-day gang unit — and a time-travel fantasy “Sleepy Hollow.” Fox is clearly leaning toward guy-friendly fare to build on the momentum it has developed this season with the gory serial killer drama “The Following.”

Jessica Biel's Met Gala look was a little on the nose. Wearing head-to-toe Giambattista Valli, the 31-year-old actress wore a fake septum nose ring at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City May 6. Biel's edgy nose jewelry was an obvious nod to the theme of the night and the opening of the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition. The Total Recall star tweeted that her Fred Leighton jewels and Giambattista Valli clutch were "kind of everything." Biel attended the star-studded gala with the designer himself. [...] »
Last week we got our first look at Will Yun Lee's (Total Recall) Silver Samurai in action against Hugh Jackman's Logan in The Wolverine thanks to the arrival of the CinemaCon trailer for the upcoming X-Men solo sequel, and now director James Mangold has tweeted a new theatrical poster for the movie which adopts the same style as the first teaser poster and focuses on the Japanese antagonist. Judging by the sheer size of the Silver Samurai, it's surprising this isn't the IMAX poster...

Just when you were thinking the north of Europe could do no wrong in the crime drama stakes, along comes Dead Man Down. Niels Arden Oplev's first film since The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2009) doesn't undo the good work of The Killing, Borgen, The Bridge et al, but it's without question a disappointment given that it's also Oplev's reunion with breakout Tattoo star Noomi Rapace. Despite its pedigree, this is a slapdash and intermittently ludicrous thriller.
Following last year's Total Recall, Colin Farrell takes another punt at recovering his lapsed action hero image in the role of Victor, a strong-but-silent henchman type with a tortured past. He's the right-hand man to a nasty New York crime lord Alphonse Hoyt (Terence Howard), whose ranks he has infiltrated with the »

We’re getting a new look at Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the latest trailer for the film which features a lot of slicing and dicing. The trailer was screened at CinemaCon in Las Vegas a few weeks ago and has finally been released on the web. This sixty-second look at The Wolverine portrays Jackman's Logan/Wolverine as a no-nonsense hero, legend and all-around warrior.
The CinemaCon trailer mixes some footage previously seen in the film’s first trailer as well as some brand new footage including a brief glimpse at the larger-than-life steel Silver Samurai, played by Will Yun Lee (Total Recall). The latest Wolverine incarnation sees Logan (Jackman) in modern day Japan where, out of his element he is pushed to his physical and emotional limits as he prepares for his biggest challenge yet, the intimidating and lethal Silver Samurai.

Warner Bros. released the WonderCon trailer for Pacific Rim earlier this week, and the result was a much-needed boost of energy to that blockbuster’s hype-building machine. 20th Century Fox, it seems, took notice, which explains why the studio has decided to release online a short (and sweet) trailer for this summer’s X-Men installment, The Wolverine, as was presented at the 2013 CinemaCon in Las Vegas last month.
The Wolverine is directed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma), from a script written by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) and Mark Bomback (Total Recall), and sees Hugh Jackman play the self-healing, metal-clawed mutant Logan for a sixth time. This time, Wolvie is on his own – after the events in X-Men: The Last Stand – and heads to Japan, where he is offered a chance to give up immortality, by an old acquaintance seeking to ...

The hordes of "Gears of War" fans who have clamored for a big-screen adaptation have something to celebrate today, besides a really sweet head stomp. After years of uncertainty, the "Gears of War" movie is back on track with producer Scott Stuber.
Variety reports that after an intense bidding war for the rights to the mega-popular Xbox franchise, Stuber, who recently produced "Ted" and "Batteship," walked away as the victor.
With a major studio producer backing the adaptation, "Gears of Wars" is closer to becoming a reality than any time since 2007.

Six years ago, "Total Recall" remake director Len Wiseman attempted to bring the Cog and Locust to movie theaters with New Line Cinema. Wiseman eventually left the project, which sputtered out from there.
The renewed effort to bring "Gears of War" to the big screen adds it to a growing list of developing adaptations »

Back in 2007, New Line got to work on a "Gears of War" movie, based on the popular video game franchise. The studio hired Stuart Beattie to write the script and Len Wiseman (Underworld, Total Recall) to direct, but the project eventually fell apart due to creative differences. Then six months ago, Epic Games, the creator of the video game, started looking for others to take on the film. Now comes word that producer Scott Stuber (Ted, Identity Thief, Safe House) will produce and will take the project to Universal Pictures. The video game story is set on the planet Sera and follows a former P.O.W. who is civilization's best hope in the fight against the Locust Horde, a race of creatures who emerged from beneath the planet's surface and are intent on eliminating humankind. The game was released in 2006 and has since spawned three sequels and sold close to 19 million units. »
A big screen adaptation of Epic Games' hit third-person shooter Gears of War has been in development since 2007, and after slipping into development hell, last October brought rumours that talent agency CAA was looking to revive the movie. Well, now comes word that Ted and 47 Ronin producer Scott Stuber has secured the film rights and will look to develop a new script alongside developers Epic.
According to Variety, Stuber is yet to appoint a screenwriter to the adaptation, which was initially written by Stuart Beattie (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), with Chris Morgan (Wanted) subsequently coming in to do a rewrite when director Len Wiseman (Total Recall) became attached in 2008. There's also no talent or distributor attached as of yet, although Stuber has a first-look deal with Universal and the report states that both parties will soon be shopping the project to potential studios.

Scott Stuber has signed on to produce the big screen adaptation of the hit video game franchise Gears of War. The movie is one step closer to actually becoming a reality. As of right now, there's no writer, director or any other talent attached to the project. However, Stuber will start developing the story with the video game's developer Epic Games. The film isn't set up at any studio yet either, but the producer has a first look deal with Universal Pictures.
The project was previously set up at New Line Cinema with a script written by Stuart Beattie, and Len Wiseman (Total Recall) was set to direct it. Due to creative differences with Epic Games, the movie ended up not going into production.
Epic Games wants to keep an eye on the movie as it goes forward, making sure that the story stays in line with the mythology that »

Let me know how many sets you’d like and when you’d run (ideally early/ mid next week would be best for us).
When the body of a gang member is discovered in the freezer of crime boss Alphonse’s (Terrence Howard) mansion – a clear message has been sent… or has it?
Perhaps it’s appropriate that the adaptation of Peter M. Lenkov’s comic book miniseries R.I.P.D. (or Rest In Peace Department) served a sentence in development limbo before finally getting made by director Robert Schwentke (Red). After all, the film is about a cop who gets killed whilst on duty and is recruited by the R.I.P.D. – a supernatural law enforcement agency tasked with rounding up “bad souls” who have escaped custody.
In anticipation of the film’s summer release, producer Neal Moritz – who also worked on last year’s Total Recall remake – talked about about the challenges of getting the film made, the challenge of creating a story that everyone would want to see, and how it was cast.

It's certainly an exciting time for comic book movie fans at the moment, what with the recent Man of Steel trailer, today's Thor: The Dark World trailer and the impending release of Iron Man 3 (which we'll be reviewing in just a few short hours), and now 20th Century Fox has got in on the act with a new international trailer for The Wolverine, which sees Hugh Jackman heading to Japan for his sixth appearance as the X-Men's adamantium-clawed mutant Logan. Sadly, there's only a few snippets of footage in this latest preview, but seeing as it took an eternity for the official trailer to land, it could be a while before we get to see any more...
The Wolverine (or Wolverine: Samurai, as it's now titled in Japan) is directed by James Mangold (Knight and Day) and is based upon the 1982 comic book miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. »

Though the title suggests that a certain franchise is moving into surreal and disturbing new territory, it is actually the intriguing new drama from writer/producer/director Francesca Gregorini, her second feature after indie flick Tanner Hall, 2009). Alongside Scodelario (Skins, Wuthering Heights) and Biel (Hitchcock, Total Recall) are stalwarts Alfred Molina (An Education, Spiderman 2) and Frances O’Connor (Mr Selfridge, A.I.) in what will no doubt be one of the highlights of Sundance. Have an official synopsis and a trailer.
‘Emanuel, a troubled girl, becomes preoccupied with her mysterious, new neighbor, who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. In offering to babysit her newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world, of which she becomes the gatekeeper.’
