London Film Festival 2014: The Drop Gala

11 October 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Saturday saw the BFI London Film Festival gala for The Drop, adapted from a Dennis Lehane novel and starring Tom Hardy as a bartender in a Brooklyn club often used for the transfer of dirty money. He meets Nadia (Noomi Rapace) by chance after discovering an injured dog in her trash can. It also features the last screen performance from the late James Gandolfini.Rapace praised director Michaël Roskam, comparing his work to Ridley Scott, with whom she worked on Prometheus. She said, “Ridley Scott started with art school and Michaël did the same thing. They have the same sort of approach, like they’re drawing big pictures and then they put you into it and you’re supposed to live in that world.”Lehane’s novels have been adapted for the big screen several times before, most famously in Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island and Ben Affleck thriller Gone Baby Gone. »

Why is Hollywood building so many cinematic universes?

10 October 2014 4:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Marvel to Star Wars and Universal's monsters, Hollywood's become obsessed with universe building. Mark takes a closer look...

It feels weird to open with a spoiler warning for a medical drama from the 1980s, but if you're particularly sensitive to plot details from St. Elsewhere, you might wish to skip to the first sub-heading.

The infamous season finale placed all of the characters and events that had preceded it in the imagination of one of the doctors' autistic sons, Tommy Westphall, who dreamt it all up while staring into a snow globe that contained a replica of the hospital where it all took place. The funny thing is, St. Elsewhere had crossed over with other American TV shows, including Homicide: Life On The Street and Cheers, meaning they also potentially took place in Tommy's imagination.

Extrapolating on an argument advanced by the late, great comics and television writer Dwayne McDuffie, »

Experience A Place Where Nothing Is Impossible In Tomorrowland Teaser Trailer

9 October 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In hot pursuit of yesterday’s first look, Disney has dropped a teaser trailer for sci-fi adventure, Tomorrowland. After being shrouded in secrecy since production began, the excitement surrounding Brad Bird’s latest pic appears to be completely justified.

The film is written by Bird (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and Prometheus scribe Damon Lindelof, and this first trailer hints at the utopian world of its title, while honing in on Britt Robertson’s leading gal, Casey. Described as a “bright, optimistic teen,” she happens upon a magical pin which transports her to another dimension called Tomorrowland. The location of which is entirely unknown – but who cares when their technology involves jetpacks?!

Along to escort her into this “enigmatic place” is George Clooney’s grizzled former genius, Frank. Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson all co-star.

Thankfully, there are no major reveals in the brief preview. »

George Clooney visits Tomorrowland in teaser trailer for sci-fi film

9 October 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

What if there was a secret place where nothing is impossible?

That is the concept behind the sci-fi adventure film Tomorrowland.  Rebellious teen Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) shares a common destiny with former boy-genius and inventor Frank Walker (George Clooney).  Together they embark on a mission to unlock the secrets of Tomorrowland, a place that exists within the time and space of collective memory.  In the first teaser that has been released for the film, we get a brief glimpse at Casey’s introduction to this mystical place of being and Frank in an Oz the great and powerful sort of position.

The Disney film is directed by Brad Bird (Ratatouille, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) and co-written by Bird and  “Lost” scribe Damon Lindelof.  You know the man behind “Lost,” Prometheus, and Star Trek Into Darkness has more than a few tricks up his sleeve when it comes to science fiction and mystery. »

George Clooney invites you to a 'miraculous place' in first 'Tomorrowland' trailer

9 October 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I haven't been following Brad Bird's "Tomorrowland" too closely and I imagine that's how they want it. The air of mystery has been maintained throughout, but audiences at New York Comic-Con got a peek Thursday afternoon, and now so can you. Here's the official plot synopsis: Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (George Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as "Tomorrowland." What they must do there changes the world — and them — forever. "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof, who hasn't exactly shined in features ("Prometheus," "Cowboys & Aliens") wrote the screenplay with Bird. The film also stars Hugh Laurie, David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson. This first taste gives you a »

H.R. Giger’s Original Paintings For Alien Will Haunt Your Dreams

9 October 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Towering engineers, spine-chilling arachnid facehuggers, and ever-menacing Xenomorphs; it can only be a collection of concept art from Alien. To commemorate the 35th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s seminal 1979 classic, Yahoo Movies has published a series of terrifying paintings that H.R. Giger originally presented to the director during pre-production all those years ago.

There are eight sketching in total, and they will be available to those who pick up the recently-released anniversary Blu-ray bundle, which comprises all four of the Alien films.

In the build-up to 2012’s quasi-prequel, Prometheus, the outlet also had the opportunity to speak with Ridley Scott, who touched upon his first meeting with the late, great Swiss artist, stating that the Xenomorph as we know it is all but deceased.

“The beast is done. Cooked. I got lucky meeting H.R. Giger all those years ago. But after four [not including the 'Alien vs. Predator' movies], I think it wears out a little bit. »

Check out the photos below. Speaking to EW, Bird and Lindelof revealed the first plot details, stating that the story gets going when Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) finds a mysterious pin, which when touched unveils a place known as Tomorrowland. "There is a piece of technology in this pin, it's the kind of old-school pin you would wear on your lapel, and when you make physical contact with it, you have the illusion of being physically transported to another world, and that's how Casey gets her first glimpse of Tomorrowland," said Lindelof. Bird also spoke about Clooney's character, named Frank Walker, who is described as a hermit and failed inventor. "He's at this farmhouse, »

'Tomorrowland': First Photos Show George Clooney And Britt Robertson

8 October 2014 9:07 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Brad Bird's sci-fi/fantasy adventure pic Tomorrowland has remained a great mystery, until now. A few photos have surfaced online, showcasing George Clooney and Britt Robertson (Under The Dome), as well as some great story details, which don't actually reveal too much of the plot, but do prepare us for what's in store.

Entertainment Weekly revealed two first photos, some stunning concept art of Tomorrowland itself, and the new details. The film will revolve around Robertson's Casey Newton, a teenage girl from Florida who stumbles upon a mysterious pin that "reveals a vision of a place that may not be a different world but simple a better one." It seems her job is to find this place (without the pin maybe?), and that's where Clooney comes in. He plays a "hermit and failed inventor" who can help the teen get to where she wants to go.

So far Brad Bird has made The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Obviously everyone is automatically going to be interested in whatever movie he does next, no matter what it's about or who is in it. But, so far that movie -- the sci-fi Disney project Tomorrowland -- has been fairly shrouded in mystery. We know it's written by Damon Lindelof (Lost, Prometheus) and Jeff Jensen (a former journalist), stars George Clooney and Britt Robertson, and somehow includes Walt Disney's obsession with the future. Now thanks to a first look piece at Entertainment Weekly, we not only have our first three images from the movie, but a host of fresh details about its plot, and some of them are a bit surprising.

‘Alien Isolation:’ The Horror Game That Could Have Been Ridley Scott’s Sequel

7 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Sometimes I’m not sure what’s scarier: the implacably murderous Alien in Ridley Scott’s film, or the fact that the groundbreaking science-fiction movie debuted 35 years ago. Yikes!

To celebrate, of sorts, Fox and Sega have collaborated on Alien Isolation, a videogame debuting today that lovingly recreates the grungy, lived-in look of the original movie alongside plenty of creepy jolts and chills of its own. It’s all plunked down in a new setting that would be a fantastic sequel (hint, hint) were Sir Ridley ever to be so disposed. If you can handle the game’s gut-churning suspense, it’s available for PCs and Sony and Microsoft videogame consoles of the two most recent generations. I highly recommend it for those with durable stomach linings and an inclination to have the bejeezus scared out of them.

It’s part of a gamer genre called “survival horror,” and that »
