‘Blade Runner 2’ first look: Official image lands online

17 July 2016 11:54 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The first official image from the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, which is still officially untitled, has been released by Warner Brothers/ Sony Pictures.

Denis Villeneuve (SicarioPrisoners) is directing and principal photography is scheduled to begin this month.  The film will be released by Warner Bros. in North America and Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute in all media for all overseas territories.

“I’ve always been attracted to science-fiction films with strong visual signatures that lead us into unique parallel worlds and the original ‘Blade Runner’ is by far the best of all time,” Villeneuve said in an official release. “Ridley Scott had the genius to blend science-fiction and film noir to create this unique exploration of human condition. The new ‘Blade Runner’ is an extension of the first movie a few decades later.”  

The sequel is set several decades after the 1982 original, with Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role as Rick Deckard. »

15 July 2016 1:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David F. Sandberg’s feature-length directorial debut, “Lights Out,” is set to bow next week — and Warner Bros. is using his YouTube-to-bigscreen success story to market the horror film.

The studio pacted with YouTube to invite eight up-and-coming creators to shoot scary short films at YouTube Space New York, on new sets inspired by the “Lights Out” movie. The videos are slated to go live Friday, one week ahead of the July 22 debut of “Lights Out,” a New Line Cinema presentation distributed by Warner Bros. The shorts will appear on the individual creator channels, as well as the YouTube Space channel, the official Warner Bros. YouTube channel and promoted through social media platforms.

“It’s a Cinderella story born at YouTube,” said Blair Rich, president of worldwide marketing for Warner Bros. “So it seemed like the most natural place to promote the movie was with YouTube.”

Stellar New 'Blade Runner 2' Concept Art Released!

15 July 2016 11:04 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While Blade Runner wasn’t very well received upon its released in the early 1980s, it has held up over time and is now revered as a dramatic science fiction film to which all others are compared. It was slow, contemplative, and life-changing for a great number of people, not the least of whom was director Denis Villeneuve, who is set to helm the anticipated Blade Runner sequel.

“I remember the opening sequence perfectly,” Villeneuve told EW. And it’s not just the opening sequence he remembers. After watching the film “thousands of times,” he claims to know the whole thing by heart. “That note of music; seeing Los Angeles in 2019; that smog; that darkness. It’s really the movie that gave birth to my desire to become a director.”

While the world could have very much gone on just fine without a Blade Runner 2, if you were to give a sequel to a filmmaker, »

Are Popular Characters Replacing Big Name Actors?

5 July 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 The long-accepted rule in the film industry is that established names bring in the box office gold. Hollywood has always relied on big-name actors to guarantee them big box office. But is the trend changing now? Are fans now becoming less interested in A-list actors than in the characters they play?

A-List Hollywood stars get the big money because they bring in big profits for Hollywood studios. Or at least, they have up until now. Is the era of the A-Lister starting to fade? It’s possible, because in recent years, it seems that film fans have more interest in the role and less in the person playing the role. Look at what’s been happening to many A-lister in recent years.

 Let’s take Johnny Depp, for instance. He used to play a variety of roles and could draw in crowds with his name alone. More recently, however, his »

Lights Out Trailer #2 Brings Your Worst Childhood Fears to Life

24 June 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, filmmaker James Wan returned to the horror genre with his hit sequel The Conjuring 2, which has done quite well at the box office over the past few weeks. Next month, the filmmaker produces what could be one of the scariest movies this summer with Lights Out, hitting theaters July 22. To get fans ready for this horror-thriller, Warner Bros. has released the second terrifying trailer.

The first trailer debuted back in March, but we haven't heard much about this thriller since then. Warner Bros. did promote this movie during its CinemaCon presentation in April. With the success of James Wan's The Conjuring 2, it could be a good omen for Lights Out, although it will face quite the heavy hitter when it arrives in theaters July 22, going up against Paramount's Star Trek Beyond. We'll have to wait and see if the horror hounds or the sci-fi set will claim that weekend. »
