Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation tracking soft at the box office

17 July 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We are less than an fortnight away from the return of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in the fifth Mission: Impossible film, Rogue Nation, but it may face a slight uphill battle at the box office if early estimates are to be believed, reports Variety.

Opening on July 31st, Rogue Nation is tracking behind many of the year’s biggest films as well as those immediately around it such as Marvel’s Ant-Man. Early indications are that the film is on course for an opening Us weekend of around $40 million, which is slightly lower than some had predicted even though it would be above the $29.8 million opening of the previous film, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

Despite the opening weekend estimates, it is thought that the fifth entry in the franchise could very well take a similar path as Ghost Protocol and play consistently well through its opening weeks. The fourth »

Neill Blomkamp teases new Alien movie with Sigourney Weaver concept art

17 July 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Neill Blomkamp continues to tantalise fans of the Alien franchise with concept art from his sequel.

The filmmaker has kept fans in the loop with his vision for the film throughout pre-production, and his latest concept art depicts Sigourney Weaver as badass alien hunter Ellen Ripley once again.

#alien going very well. Love this project

A photo posted by Brownsnout (@neillblomkamp) on Jul 16, 2015 at 12:07pm Pdt

Michael Biehn's Corporal Dwayne Hicks, first seen in 1986's Aliens, stands at her side.

Blomkamp also wrote to his Instagram followers: "#alien going very well. Love this project."

It was through the enthusiastic response to concept art that Alien 5 was officially greenlit.

His sequel is said to follow in line with the spirit of Aliens, without ignoring the events in the later sequels.

Neill Blomkamp Reveals Ripley & Hicks In More Concept Art From His 'Alien' Movie

17 July 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Remember a few weeks ago when we wrote about movie franchises that maybe should never have been franchised in the first place? “Alien” could be one of them. Ridley Scott’s terrifying original is still remarkable, and James Cameron’s sequel “Aliens” managed to expand the universe by switching genres into the action war movie to great effect. But from “Alien 3” through the “V. Predator” team-ups to Scott’s recent “Prometheus,” all the other films in the series have been disappointing from one degree to another.  It remains to be seen if Neill Blomkamp can revive the series successfully. The South African at the helm of “District 9” was also behind the deeply disappointing “Elysium” and “Chappie,” has moved on to develop a new “Alien” picture that would see the return of Sigourney Weaver to the role of Ripley, moving alongside a potential sequel to “Prometheus.”  “Alien” fans cooled »

'Alien 5' Concept Art Has Ripley and Hicks Ready for Battle

16 July 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Don't mention a movie for a few months, no matter how big the title, and it will quickly disappear from the public consciousness without a lingering thought. There has been no talk of Alien 5 in severally months, but director Neill Blomkamp has returned with an update. There is no huge news to report. The process is going very well. And we do get a new piece of concept art featuring some much beloved classic characters. But that's about it.

It seems like back in March, when Chappie was coming to theaters, Alien 5 was the hot talk of the moment. A day didn't go by without new information leaking out. The director himself was keen on sharing plenty of Concept art. And we heard plenty about the possible story from both Neill Blomkamp and Sigourney Weaver, who were on their Chappie press tour at the time. We even heard a small »

Tilda Swinton Confirms 'Doctor Strange' Ancient One Role

14 July 2015 5:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, we reported that Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton is in talks to play The Ancient One in Marvel's Phase Three adventure Doctor Strange, but it was never confirmed if she finalized her deal or not. While doing press for her summer comedy Trainwreck, in theaters this weekend, the actress confirmed that it's a done deal. Here's what she had to say, in an interview with Screen Crush.

"No no no, it's done. We're so far in talks that we're not talking any more [laughs]. It's done. The conversation has been had."

Over the last few years, Marvel has managed to land Oscar winners and cinematic legends such as Robert Redford (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Glenn Close (Guardians of the Galaxy) to star in their blockbusters, with Tilda Swinton following in that tradition. The actress has previously starred in comic book movies such as Constantine and last year's Snowpiercer, »

15 underappreciated books: sci-fi, fantasy, horror fiction

2 July 2015 6:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for a good book recommendation? Our writers have a few unsung sci-fi, fantasy and horror gems up their sleeves...

Other people. What’s the point of them? They’re noisy and everywhere.

There is one thing they’re especially good at, however, and that’s recommending new stuff. In the spirit of that, we asked our writers to recommend great books that, for whatever reason, haven’t been surrounded by as much fuss and recognition as they deserve.

Nominations came in for personal favourites in fiction, non-fiction, children’s books and graphic novels, so we’ve divided them up into a series of features, the first of which is below, on great unsung sci-fi, fantasy, horror and thriller adult fiction.

Our hope is that you’ll demonstrate your worth as other people by carrying on the recommendations in the comments section below. Thanks in advance.

'Steve Jobs' Trailer: Watch Michael Fassbender Play the Brilliant Man Who Invented Our Future

1 July 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Steve Jobs was one of the most influential men of the 20th and 21st centuries. A driving force in the personal computer and smartphone revolutions, his vision and commitment to bold new ideas changed the daily lives of billions of people. And while there have already been a number of movies about the man behind the iPhone, none have carried quite as much prestige as this fall's Steve Jobs. The new movie is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours), written by Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, The Social Network), and stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Prometheus), and now we've got a new look at it thanks to the first full-length trailer below. Steve Jobs also stars Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels. It hits theaters on October 9, 2015...

Prometheus Ending: How Does This Movie Connect To Alien?

1 July 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ridley Scott.s Prometheus is a movie that catches a lot of flack. Admittedly, some of it is well deserved. Seriously, it has the dumbest characters with the worst decision-making skills ever put on screen. As a precursor to the Alien movies, it obviously doesn.t live up to the (possibly unfair) expectations piled upon it before release. People were hoping for something epic and game changing to the point where anything less would have been a disappointment. And guess what? It ain.t perfect, not by a long shot. But that doesn.t mean it.s completely without redeeming qualities. Scott has said that while Prometheus isn.t a prequel to Alien, and there may not necessarily be a causal link between the two, it does exist in that world, and the ties between the two are strong indeed. This film may take place much earlier on the timeline »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »
