Robert Rodriguez explains Alita: Battle Angel’s anime eyes

While James Cameron messes about on Pandora, he has handed the directorial duties of his years-in-development Alita: Battle Angel over to Predators director Robert Rodriguez. When the trailer debuted the other day, amongst the most striking features of the sci-fi epic were the rendering of Rosa Salazar’s eyes.

Speaking to Empire about the trailer, Rodriguez addressed the creative choices behind giving Alita such prominent features:-

“It was always Jim’s intention to create a photo-realistic version of the manga eyes that we’re so accustomed to seeing. We really wanted to honour that tradition and see that look standing next to any human character. To have the right person to emote behind it was really essential. Her origins are in the film and you understand why she looks that way. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, we have some pretty big windows. You can see a lot going on in there!

Culture Dump #16: Why did the ‘Predator’ franchise miss the mark?

Xenomorphs weren’t the only extraterrestrial terror hunting humans throughout the eighties. Not long after James Cameron pulled the trigger on his testosterone-charged sequel Aliens, Director John McTiernan introduced us to a new intergalactic hunter with Predator in 1987. Two war movies, two alien franchises, two very different legacies. However as Predator closes in on its thirtieth birthday, it’s hard not to think the series somehow failed to capitalise on its full potential. With Shane Black’s upcoming retooling The Predator all that could change - but what went wrong during those intervening years that set the Predator so off course?

Maybe it can all be traced back to one single event: the mishandling of the film’s original sequel. The late eighties were good for John McTiernan. Having unleashed Predator onto audiences he doubled-down on the machismo theme with Die Hard a year later. However when the time came

Full International Trailer for Nimród Antal's 'The Whiskey Robber' Film

"Viszkis was one of the most famous bank robbers in Hungary. He drank whiskey before every robbing. This is his story." An official trailer has debuted for a film titled The Whiskey Robber, also known as The Whiskey Bandit or A Viszkis in Hungarian. This is the latest feature film from Hungarian-American filmmaker Nimród Antal, of Kontroll, Vacancy, Armored, and Predators in the past. The Whiskey Robber tells the true story of a Hungarian man named Attila Ambrus, also known as "Viszkis", who robbed 29 financial institutions in Budapest between 1993 and 1999. The only clue left behind at the crime scenes was the distinct aroma of whiskey. This looks like a fascinating, thrilling story of a man who just wanted to be happy and realized the only way to feel that was to collect money - mainly by robbing banks. Check this out. Here's an international trailer for Nimród Antal's The Whiskey Robber,

The Whiskey Bandit Trailer: Predators, Vacancy Director Returns

Nimrod Antal (Predators, Vacancy) hasn't been on my radar for a few years but I've always liked his films. His latest is about one of the most famous bank robbers in Hungary. A robber who drank whiskey before every robbing. That's my kind of robber.

The first trailer for the Hungarian film has dropped and it looks pretty slick. Let's bookmark this one, folks.

Synopsis:

Between 1993 and 1999, one man robbed 29 financial institutions in Budapest. Banks, post offices and even travel agencies fell victim to his crime spree. The police had no leads and no hope of findi [Continued ...]

Kontroll And Predators Director Returns Home With The Whiskey Bandit

It was back in 2003 that Hungarian director Nimrod Antal burst on to the international scene with his debut feature, Kontroll. A smart, slick title that was not at all what we'd been taught to expect from Eastern European cinema, Kontroll triggered a bit of a frenzy around Antal and Hollywood came calling. But while he tended to over deliver in the small to mid budget projects he was handed - Vacancy, Armored, Predators, Metallica Through The Never - the personality that caught so much attention in Antal's debut never quite came through in his Us efforts. Which means there is a certain amount of anticipation to see what Antal can do back in his native Hungary now that he has returned there for a...

10 Actors Who Were Almost Cast in Marvel's Ant-Man
Cinephiles and Marvel movie fans were abuzz when writer/director Edgar Wright teased plot details, production photos, and concept footage from Ant-Man, which promised to be an action comedy take on Marvel's travel-sized superhero. Wright ultimately left the project, though Paul Rudd stayed on as Scott Lang for director Peyton Reed, who delivered the 2015 film that earned over $519 million worldwide. But before Rudd entered the scene, Ant-Man himself almost looked quite a bit different.

There were plenty of actors considered for the film's lead and the no-less important parts of Og Ant-Man Hank Pym, the Wasp and/or Hope van Dyne. Today, we look at 10 actors who were almost cast in Marvel's Ant-Man at one point or another. And there are some pretty wild and unique choices to be discovered. As well as some that are simply no brainers. Would any of them have been better than Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly?

Ed Skrein’s Bold Move to Opt Out of ‘Hellboy’ Over Whitewashing Concerns Ratchets Up Pressure

Ed Skrein’s Bold Move to Opt Out of ‘Hellboy’ Over Whitewashing Concerns Ratchets Up Pressure
Reversing Hollywood’s decades-long practice of casting white actors in Asian roles has proved vexing. Boycotts haven’t worked. Op-eds have drawn attention to the issue, and social media has magnified the scrutiny of the lack of diversity and inclusion on the big screen.

But last week’s stunning decision by British actor Ed Skrein to drop out of playing a Japanese-American character in the upcoming “Hellboy” reboot is likely to put pressure not only on casting directors but actors themselves, as well as film companies and studios.

Skrein, who declined an interview request, said in a statement that when he accepted the role, he was unaware that the character of Ben Daimio was of Asian heritage. He said the casting announcement caused “understandable upset” and “intense conversation” that prompted him to do what he felt was right. The response to his move has been largely positive, with many people on social media pledging to support other

Adrien Brody Is Still Haunted By ‘The Pianist’ After 15 Years

Adrien Brody Is Still Haunted By ‘The Pianist’ After 15 Years
Fifteen years have passed since Adrien Brody won best actor for his work in “The Pianist,” and he’s still fielding questions about that role more than anything else. That was certainly the case at a recent press conference with journalists at the Locarno Film Festival, where the actor is receiving a lifetime achievement award.

But you don’t get the feeling, at least not entirely, that he is reminding you of his triumph at the Oscars in order to bask again in residual traces of that glory. It’s more that his portrayal of the Jewish composer Władysław Szpilman in Roman Polanski’s epic film of the Holocaust exacted an emotional toll that, even with a decade and a half under the bright spotlight of Hollywood, he has found difficult to shrug off. “I had to sacrifice large parts of my personal life,” he said. In preparing for the film,

Adrien Brody on His Ties to China and New Film ‘A Dog Named De Niro’ (Exclusive)

Adrien Brody on His Ties to China and New Film ‘A Dog Named De Niro’ (Exclusive)
Adrien Brody was feted Friday with a lifetime achievement award at the Locarno Film Festival, Europe’s preeminent indie event, where he sat down with Variety and talked about why his 2003 Oscar for “The Pianist” didn’t lead to as many big studio roles as could be expected. He also delved into his ties to China, where he is one of a handful of bankable Western stars; and was cagey about his upcoming roles in TV show “Peaky Blinders” and genre-bending picture “A Dog Named De Niro.” Excerpts.

Of your early films the one that stands out for me is “Bread and Roses” by Ken Loach, who was celebrated here in Locarno last year. It’s still timely, given that it’s about exploited Mexican workers in L.A. Can you talk to me a little about working with Loach. How did it happen?

I don’t recall the audition, but

Warner Bros. Ready to Remake Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (Again)

In the studio world's constant quest to mine familiar IP, this one was inevitable, folks. Deadline reported this afternoon that Warner Bros. has hired veteran producer John Davis (Predator, Alien vs. Predator, And Predators!) to lead the development of a new adaptation of Jack Finney's 1954 novel "The Body Snatchers", with The Conjuring 2 scribe David Leslie Johnson along for the ride. Davis is a man with a bazillion projects in development, so we'll just have to see how far this goes. Though in terms of sure bets this one should be firing on all cylinders.

'X-Men' Buzz: 'The New Mutants' Cast Change; 'The Dark Phoenix' Brings Back Quicksilver

  Production on the next X-Men movie, The New Mutants, is scheduled to begin in Boston next month, which means that the cast is still being finalized.

New Mutants Replaces Rosario Dawson with Alice Braga

New Mutants Replaces Rosario Dawson with Alice Braga
Just a month after Rosario Dawson entered talks to play Dr. Celia Reyes in 20th Century Fox's The New Mutants, the actress has backed out of the role, with Alice Braga stepping in to replace her. No reason for Rosario Dawson's departure was given, but with production slated to begin next month in Boston, it's easy to see why a replacement was found so quickly. It hasn't been confirmed how many other roles still need to be filled as we get closer and closer to production getting under way.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on this casting update, with Alice Braga joining an ensemble that already includes a talented cast of youngsters. Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams plays Wolfsbane, with Split star Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, 13 Reasons Why star Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton as Cannonball and The Originals star Blu Hunt as Mirage.

‘New Mutants’: Alice Braga Replaces Rosario Dawson as Dr. Cecilia Reyes

‘New Mutants’: Alice Braga Replaces Rosario Dawson as Dr. Cecilia Reyes
Alice Braga has joined Fox and Marvel’s X-Men spinoff, “New Mutants,” replacing Rosario Dawson in the role of Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

Dawson was in talks last month for the role. Dr. Cecilia Reyes serves as a mentor for the superheroes and her character has the ability to generate an invisible bio-field around herself.

“New Mutants,” created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, was the first X-Men comic spinoff, launched in the early 1980s. The “New Mutants” movie is in pre-production and has been set for an April 13, 2018, opening. “The Fault in Our Stars” director Josh Boone is helming “New Mutants” from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee about teenage superheroes-mutants.

Simon Kinberg and Karen Rosenfelt are producing. Fox announced in April that it was dating three Marvel movies for 2018 — “New Mutants” for April 13, “Deadpool 2” for June 1, and “Dark Phoenix” for Nov. 2.

Predator 30th Anniversary Poster Shared by Director Shane Black

Predator 30th Anniversary Poster Shared by Director Shane Black
Predator turned 30 recently and, even three decades later, it remains a true action classic. The movie holds up incredibly well, even by today's standards, and the creature is still a relevant part of pop culture. Shane Black is currently shooting The Predator, a sequel to the original, which is set to come out next year. Before he was a successful writer/director, Shane Black was an actor and, he actually starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original Predator. That being the case, Black recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of the movie.

Shane Black took a break from reviving the Predator franchise and took to social media in order to honor the 30th anniversary of Predator. On his Twitter, he shared a pretty sweet looking poster, with Arnold Schwarzenegger's Dutch front-and-Center, celebrating the entirety of the franchise. Shane Black, who played Hawkins, did have a very simple but effective message
