Godless: first trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Netflix show

16 October 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Kirsten Howard Oct 17, 2017

The first Godless trailer showcases Michelle Dockery and Jack O’Connell in a Western series produced by Steven Soderbergh...

Netflix's new offering Godless looks to put an intriguing twist on the conventional concept of the Western.

With Steven Soderbergh, indie darling and esteemed big screen blockbuster director of the Ocean’s Eleven film franchise, attached as an executive producer to the 7-episode limited series created by Scott Frank, look for some twists and turns not traditionally found in the arid, dusty, tumbleweed-strewn genre.

Have a look...

Godless story

The trailer focuses on the trials and tribulations of an outlaw, named Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell). With the events of the series taking place in the 1880s American West, we see intermittent Kung-Fu-esque flashbacks to Roy’s upbringing, where he was raised by anti-hero outlaw Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) - and with whom he eventually becomes partners in crime. »

‘Godless’ Trailer: Netflix’s Steven Soderbergh-Produced Western Rides into No Man’s Land

16 October 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It didn’t take long, but just two years after the untimely demise of “The Knick,” Steven Soderbergh has partnered with director Scott Frank for “Godless,” a new Netflix limited series that’s set to take over your family’s Thanksgiving weekend.

Godless” stars Jeff Daniels as Frank Griffin, a criminal who’s seeking revenge on Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), a young ex-partner who deserted Griffin’s posse. Both of them converge on the women-run frontier town of La Belle, New Mexico, where Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery) gives Roy protection from Griffin’s approaching hoards. (Presumably, Griffin is an outlaw and if he tells you any different, you punch him in the face.)

Darren Aronofsky would like to direct a Superman movie

26 September 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn revealed that he’d had talks with Warner Bros. about potentially helming a Man of Steel sequel, and now Darren Aronofsky has become the latest filmmaker to throw his hat into the ring for a Superman movie.

“I mean, you know, Superman would always be interesting, but they’re already deep into reinventing him, so that’s not going to happen for a long time,” the mother! director told he told CinePop when asked if he had any ambitions in the superhero genre. “A lot of the great superhero titles are done, people have used them up. So now it’s kinda characters that aren’t as interesting. You never know. We’ll see what comes my way.”

Aronofsky did spend several years attached to a reboot of the Batman franchise back in the early 2000s, where he worked with »

Hiroyuki Sanada joins Westworld season 2 and Avengers: Infinity War casts

16 September 2017 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Japanese actor and martial artist Hiroyuki Sanada will be joining the cast of HBO’s Westworld in a major recurring role for season 2, TV Guide reports. In addition to the fact that Sanada will be playing a new character named Musashi for multiple episodes, the outlet also did a little bit of digging and discovered that the character could give the audience a closer look at Samurai World (park name unconfirmed), a sister park to Westworld hinted at in the season 1 finale. 

For this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Funko unveiled a wave of exclusive HBO-related Pop! vinyl figures, including one for a character of the name Musashi; he hadn’t been introduced on the show before and sports a samurai-appropriate sword, helmet and armor. Westworld clearly isn’t Delos Incorporated’s only venture, and the toy would suggest that at least one of those other ventures will get some »

Avengers 4 Nabs The Wolverine Actor, But Who’s He Playing?

15 September 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Avengers: Infinity War finished shooting this summer, but there’s no time for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to take a vacation and relax, as (the currently untitled) Avengers 4 swung into production almost immediately after. We’ve heard reports that the globetrotting superhero franchise is due to head to Japan (eagle-eyed observers have spotted sets in Atlanta that’ll stand in for the country), with Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner reported to be involved in some crucial scenes with the Yakuza.

That’s probably where we’ll meet The Wolverine actor Hiroyuki Sanada, who’s just been confirmed to be joining the sprawling ensemble cast of what’s perhaps the most important instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. Of course, fans will be familiar with him from his performance as the villainous Shingen in the aforementioned X-Men film, where he met a gruesome end on Logan’s claws. Or, »

Logan is the first Academy screener sent to Oscar voters

15 September 2017 2:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The 90th Academy Awards are still a while away, but with plenty of high quality movies already on voters’ radars, now is the time for studios to start making moves to ensure that their films are given the recognition they deserve.

According to Deadline the first DVD screener sent to the Academy voters is the Fox superhero film Logan, starring Hugh Jackman as the titular hero. Of course, it probably  comes as little surprise to many fans that Fox would push this film for Oscar gold, considering the success that it achieved for the studio.

Whilst superhero movies have never fared too well at the Oscars, this may change with James Mangold’s Logan, a film which by all accounts could be in with a shout for Best Screenplay, or for acting nominations for the moving performances of both Jackman and his co-star, Patrick Stewart.

‘Logan’ Is The First Academy Screener In The Mail As The Oscar Race Turns The Corner

14 September 2017 5:08 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It doesn’t usually affect the Oscar race much, but the first screener has been officially sent to Academy members and it’s James Mangold’s “Logan.”

The final “X-Men” film with Hugh Jackman playing the popular Marvel character for the last time earned a massive $616 million worldwide (substantially more than its predecessors “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” or “The Wolverine”) and found critical kudos signified by a 77 grade on Metacritic and a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.

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

5 September 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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 »

James Cameron praises Alien: Covenant, calls it “beautiful”

15 August 2017 2:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Cameron has spoken well of Alien: Covenant, calling it a “beautiful” film.

Ridley Scott’s latest effort in the iconic Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant, hasn’t performed as well as expected with either fans or critics. It has been pretty divisive among fans of the franchise, much like its predecessor, Prometheus.

However, James Cameron, who, of course, famously directed Aliens, has commented on Covenant, speaking fondly of it for the most part.

“I thought that Alien: Covenant was a great ride. It was beautiful. I love Ridley’s films, I love his filmmaking; I love the beauty of the photography. I love the visceral sense that you’re that, that you’re present. It’s not a film that I would have made. I hope I’m not spoiling this for anybody, but I don’t like films where you invest in a character and they get destroyed at the end. »

Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant gets an Honest Trailer

8 August 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Screen Junkies has unveiled its Honest Trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel Alien: Covenant; check it out below…

When Ridley Scott wanted to wank about the meaning of life for two hours, he gave us Prometheus. Now, he’s back with a good old fashioned alien flick that returns to it’s Sci-Fi, horror roots — until it takes a sharp left turn into the same wank job territory as the last one.

In a franchise full of unforgettable characters, experience a chapter where No One stands out — except maybe Kenny Powers. And meet the crew of The Covenant, married couples who you completely forget are married until someone says, “my wife.”

Ride along and experience a bad sci-fi script in the hands of a visual genius as you enjoy shot after epic shot while ignoring how all the tech looks way more advanced in the prequel.

The Top 12 Composers of the 21st Century, From Hans Zimmer to Nick Cave

7 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In an age where special effects reign supreme, there’s one aspect of the filmmaking process that hasn’t gone through a radical transformation — music. Some of the best movies in any given year would be sorely lacking without their memorable scores, and this has remained true well into the first two decades of the 21st century.

Film composers play an integral part in the filmmaking process, and there are a handful whose bodies of work stand out in recent years. Of course, this list of 12 major composers only begins to scratch the surface of the talent out there. There are plenty of other worthy contributors to the medium who didn’t make the cut — Danny Elfman and John Williams, we’re looking at you — but rest assured that this top dozen represent the cream of the crop.

Exclusive: Pilou Asbaek talks Ghost in the Shell and working with Scarlett Johansson

24 July 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Ghost in the Shell set for its UK home entertainment release on Digital on July 24th and on August 7th on DVD and Blu-ray, we chat to actor Pilou Asbaek about his role in the film as Batou, and working with Scarlett Johansson who portrays the character of Major.

Were you familiar with the source material for Ghost in the Shell?

I saw some of the anime in the 90s but I can’t say I was a fan. It was a part of my history, but I wasn’t like one of those die-hard fans.

How did you become involved in the film?

It’s actually an interesting story. It’s a very long story so I’ll try to make it short. I worked with one of the producers in a little indie film before that. And he introduced me to the director of Ghost in the Shell, »

Matt Reeves Might Bring Planet of The Apes Screenwriter On Board The Batman

21 July 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Seeing as Matt Reeves will be directing Warner Bros.’ upcoming Dark Knight solo film The Batman, fans have generally assumed that he would also be providing the script for the movie. This looked even more sure when Reeves confirmed that he’s disregarding the previous screenplay written by Ben Affleck, Geoff Johns and Chris Terrio – back when Affleck was still attached to direct – and will be starting from scratch. Still, a look at Reeves’ resume reveals that he’s only co-written three scripts in his career, which had people concerned.

Thankfully, it looks like there’s nothing to worry about, as Splash Report is claiming that “sources” have informed them that Reeves will be bringing on board Mark Bomback to complete the screenplay for The Batman. If true, this choice makes a lot of sense.

After all, the pair have previously worked together on both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »

Rumour: Matt Reeves enlisting Planet of the Apes screenwriter for The Batman

21 July 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While the reports that Ben Affleck’s future as Batman is in doubt will likely grab all of the headlines before Warner Bros.’ big DC Extended Universe panel at Comic-Con tomorrow, we now have another potential tidbit relating to Matt Reeves’ plans for The Batman.

According to Splash Report, Reeves is looking to reunite with his Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes screenwriter Mark Bomback on the DC solo movie, and will be enlisting him to pen a new script. Bomback does have previous experience in the genre, having written the screenplay for The Wolverine.

Now, this rumour could well just be guesswork based on the fact that Reeves has worked with Bomback on two films, both of which have achieved critical and commercial success, and recently said that he was ditching the original script from Ben Affleck, Geoff Johns and Chris Terrio to start afresh. »

Ridley Scott may use CG to add Ellen Ripley into his Alien prequels

16 July 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although the disappointing box office returns for Alien: Covenant may have harmed Ridley Scott’s hopes of a further four entries in his Alien saga. However, it seems he still intends on at least one more instalment to bring the franchise full circle, and during a recent Q&A he has now suggested using CGI to bring Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley back into the series.

“We’re heading toward the back end of the first Alien so [using CG] may be feasible. I don’t think it’ll… but Ripley’s going to be somebody’s daughter. Obviously. We’re coming in from the back end. The time constraints, of what’s the time between this film, where we leave David going off heading for that colony, I think you’re probably two films out from even considering her.”

Sigourney Weaver had been keen to reprise the role of Ellen Ripley »

Brigitte Nielsen Joins ‘Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets’ Series, Replacing Actor Busted for Child Porn (Exclusive)

14 July 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Brigitte Nielsen has been cast in “Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets” superhero-themed TV action series, taking over the villain role vacated by Mark Salling, who was indicted last year for receiving and possessing child pornography.

Shankar, who is independently producing the half-hour show, told Variety that Nielsen plays a “modified version” of Salling’s character. The director re-shot scenes with the Danish-born thesp earlier this month and said “Gods and Secrets” is now in post-production.

“I just kind of reached out to her,” Shankar said, saying he’s been in touch with Nielsen ever since he was trying to put together an all-female movie adaptation of “The Expendables” five years ago.

Nielsen’s casting in “Gods and Secrets” was confirmed by her rep at Henderson Represents Inc. She’s perhaps best known for her turns in ’80s movies “Rocky IV,” “Red Sonya” and “Beverly Hills Cop II.”

Re-shooting the scenes with Nielsen required bringing back other »
