Word comes by way of San Diego Comic-Con, where the show’s producers confirmed that Rihanna – who has flirted with acting via Battleship, Annie, This is the End and, soon, Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets – will play the highly-anticipated part of Marion Crane, the hapless visitor originally portrayed by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s seminal classic.
Have a gander at Rihanna’s official announcement, below.

Rihanna becomes a mystical being in the new music video for her single “Sledgehammer.” The song, written by Sia, is featured on the “Star Trek Beyond” soundtrack and was first heard on the latest trailer for the latest installment of the sci-fi franchise.
Wearing alien-esque makeup and an orange ensemble, the singer is seen in a desert-type location on another planet. She uses her supernatural powers to move boulders and create an orb full of energy, until finally becoming one with space. The Starship Enterprise also makes a special appearance at the end.
According to Rihanna, this is the first-ever music video filmed entirely in IMAX.

It's been "years and years" since Taylor Kitsch reunited with his Friday Night Lights costars, and he can't wait to spend time with his former castmates this weekend. Thanks to Marriott Rewards, Kitsch is teaming up with Zach Gilford, Minka Kelly, and Aimee Teegarden to compete in Saturday's Spartan Race in Chicago, where the group will be tackling obstacles and, as Kitsch joked, possibly calling Kyle Chandler for a prerace pep talk, Coach Taylor style. Over the past few years, the 35-year-old actor has starred in movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Lone Survivor, and last year he was back on the small screen with True Detective. It was his breakout role as Fnl's Tim Riggins, though, that made him a household name, and to talk to Kitsch is to remember why his popular character is such a fan favorite. Like Riggins, Kitsch is charming and quick with the one-liners - which makes sense, »

"We a big company, millions of moving parts... We all work very hard to ensure those moving parts are functioning..." Lionsgate has debuted a second trailer for Peter Berg's Deepwater Horizon, the disaster movie profiling the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. The main focus is on Mark Wahlberg as one of the workers on the rig, along with his girlfriend played by Kate Hudson. The ensemble cast also includes Dylan O'Brien, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich, Kurt Russell, Ethan Suplee, and others. This certainly looks like a very patriotic, heroic Peter Berg movie, for better or worse.

The doc will be one of the first from Berg's new non-scripted production company, Film 45 (the logical offshoot of his film/TV company, Film 44). Berg described the as-yet-untitled movie as an "unfiltered look into Rihanna's life and how she's ascended to become a global icon."
Berg added that he was interested in exploring "a young artist at the top of her professional field »
Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too. The Canadian star first won over fans as tough, hunky football hero Riggins on Friday Night Lights, and over the past few years, he's been on the big screen thanks to movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. To celebrate the Taylor Kitsch's 35th birthday, take a look back at some of his sexiest snaps from over the years. Brace yourself - there are some really, really good ones. »

After posting some behind-the-scenes photos on social media over the last week, director Luc Besson has today unveiled the first official look from Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, his new sci-fi opus due for release next year.
Based on the comic series created by Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières in 1967, Valerian is a huge sci-fi movie similar in scope to that of James Cameron’s Avatar. The comic has sold over 10million copies since it was first published in 1967. Here’s the official description:
“Valerian and Laureline are exploring Syrte, capital planet of a system of 1,000 worlds. Their mission is to discover whether the Syrtians could present a danger to Earth. What they find is a decaying empire led by decadent aristocrats, »

Earlier today we got our first look at some images from Deepwater Horizon, a new movie based on the 2014 disaster that saw the destruction of an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico and the ongoing environmental catastrophe caused by millions of gallons of oil spewing into the ocean. Summit Entertainment wasted no time in following up those images with a trailer for the movie and wow. Seriously, wow. This is a great, great teaser trailer. Peter Berg may not be everyone's favorite filmmaker. Movies like Battleship make him a bit of an easy target. But Berg is at his absolute best when he's telling stories about everyday Americans just trying to get on with their lives, and Deepwater Horizon almost looks like what would happen if Friday Night Lights suddenly turned into a...

Pieces: Taylor Kitsch (Lone Survivor, above) will star in and direct Pieces, described as a drama "about three best friends from Detroit who change the course of their lives by intercepting a drug run."

On April 20th, 2010, the world’s largest man-made disaster occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. Directed by Peter Berg (Hancock, Battleship), this harrowing story honours the brave men and women whose heroism would save many on board, and change everyone’s lives forever.
The film is based upon an article by David Barstow, David Rohde, and Stephanie Saul published in The New York Times.
Berg and Wahlberg previously collaborated on the superb 2013 American war film Lone Survivor based on the 2007 book. The movie opened to strong financial success and a generally positive critical response.

One of the worst man-made disasters in history is coming to the big screen.
Deepwater Horizon tells the true story of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 that killed twenty-four oil workers who were hired to drill for oil off the coast of Louisiana. The accident occurred on April 20th, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico.
Mark Wahlberg stars as an oil worker, alongside Kurt Russell, Dylan O'Brien, and John Malkovich. Kate Hudson plays his wife, and the trailer eerily depicts their family teaching their young daughter about dad's job, juxtaposed with the accident. Writer/Director J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year, All is Lost) co-wrote the screenplay, which is being directed by Peter Berg, most known for big action films like Battleship and Lone Survivor.
Check out the new trailer below and see Deepwater Horizon when it hits theatres on September 30th. »

It’ll be interesting to see if Lionsgate’s “Deepwater Horizon” goes the route of the spectacular drama like “In The Heart Of The Sea” and "The Walk,” and if it can actually engage audiences in a way those films couldn’t. Originally a project J.C. Chandor was going to direct, the filmmaker eventually walked due to creative differences, presumably meaning Chandor wanted a drama and the studio wanted something much more epic and explosive. And it seems like the latter is what they probably got by tapping Peter Berg, known for muscular action dramas like “Lone Survivor” and “Battleship.” And the new trailer basically bears that out.

Kitsch premiered the short film at the 2014 Palm Springs International ShortFest. He played a man facing a massive gambling debt, forcing his best friend (played by Josh Pence) to navigate through the underworld in order to save him. The feature will follow three best friends in Detroit whose lives are forever changed when they intercept a drug run.
Berg directed the movie “Friday Night Lights” and then developed the NBC series of the same name, on which Kitsch starred as Tim Riggins for the five-season run. Berg and Kitsch also collaborated on the movies “Battleship” and “Lone Survivor,” on which Emmett was a producer. »

'Ben-Hur' 2016 with Jack Huston: Chariot race to the death. 'Ben-Hur' 2016 trailer: 'Gladiator' meets 'Fast Seven' meets 'Star Wars' meets… Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer have released the trailer for their 2016 Ben-Hur remake (or reboot or readaptation) – a.k.a. Fast and Furious A.D., as one wag called it in an online comment. Instead of grandiose spectacle featuring at its core a “human” story with Christian overtones, this chariot-and-sandals epic is being sold as Gladiator meets Fast Seven meets Spartacus: Blood and Sand meets Star Wars – with Morgan Freeman's Sheik Ilderim as the Roman Empire's dreadlocked version of Alec Guinness' Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi. Say what you will, the trailer-makers sure know their target audience. And that's not the same crowd that would go check out what's usually referred to in the U.S. media as “faith” (i.e., Christian) movies. One assumes that particular audience segment will be getting »

All this has happened before and all this will happen again thanks to a deal Universal has made to develop the long-gestating Battlestar Galactica film.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, producer Michael De Luca is teaming up with producers Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark of Bluegrass Films to bring Battlestar Galactica to the big screen. Ever since the rebooted television series ended in 2009, Universal has been looking to bring the Battlestar franchise to the big screen, attaching Bryan Singer to direct at one point. He eventually left the project when it couldn’t get off the ground, but in 2014 it was said series creator Glen A. Larson was working on the project with Transcendence writer Jack Palgen. That project again fell through.
