Idris Elba In Talks For Guy Ritchie’s Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur

21 July 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is there a RocknRolla reunion in the works? It would appear so, now that an individual familiar with Guy Ritchie’s upcoming medieval epic Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur has confirmed that British thesp Idris Elba is in talks to join the cast.

Elba, a Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy nominee for his role as the tormented Dci John Luther on the BBC crime series Luther, may play the knight Bedivere, described as “Arthur’s father’s right-hand man who takes it upon himself to train the young warrior for battle as he learns his true destiny.”

Playing a mentor is nothing new for Elba, seeing as he did the same for Rinko Kikuchi’s Mako Mori as Stacker Pentecost in Pacific Rim. Still, it’s exciting to see the actor land another big role in a major blockbuster project. Ever since his turn as Stringer Bell on HBO’s The Wire, »

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

After years of rumours, delays, production and reshoots, it’s hard to believe that there’s still ten months to go before the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, but before the inevitable marketing blitz, Cbm has got its hands on a new promotional image for the post-apocalyptic sequel / reboot showing a convoy of vehicles crossing the desert…

Universal Preparing to Turn Their Classic Monsters into a Marvel-esque 'Cinematic Universe'

16 July 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first rumblings that Universal would be seeking out Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to develop a remake of The Mummy began in September 2012 with Len Wiseman (Underworld) in talks to direct a script from Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). Now Orci and Kurtzman have split and Kurtzman remains on the project, Wiseman is no longer attached and Chris Morgan (Fast Five screenwriter) now involved, though to what capacity is unclear, though it does seem as if Spaihts' script is out the window. Even more than all of that, the goal is to not only reboot The Mummy, but to create a "cinematic universe" surrounding Universal's classic monsters, which also includes Dracula, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Wolf Man, Phantom of the Opera and The Invisible Man. You know, the new Marvel formula of creating a universe so as to ensure one hit leads to several. It »

10 Reasons Prometheus 2 Should Be Scrapped For Alien 5

16 July 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Believe it or not, it’s already been two whole years since Ridley Scott’s Prometheus graced our screens and…produced one of the most venomously divisive reactions to any blockbuster in recent memory.

Even ignoring that, its box office gross was a solid $403 million, ensuring Fox were eager to press on with a follow-up, tentatively titled Paradise, which would presumably see sole survivor Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) carrying android David’s (Michael Fassbender) head with her to the Engineer homeworld in order to find out why they wanted to wipe out humanity.

Though we can’t deny that there’s at least some interesting potential there, we’re still waiting on tenterhooks for a fifth Alien film, something both James Cameron and Ridley Scott expressed an interest in pursuing last decade (with Cameron writing and Scott directing), though Cameron has changed his mind since the AvP movies happened, »

Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace’s Child 44 lands April 2015 release date

15 July 2014 1:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wow, if this were another kind of website, that headline would have made one juicy piece of celebrity gossip. No, The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy is not having a 44th child with PrometheusNoomi Rapace. The two are, however, starring in Swedish director Daniel Espinosa’s Child 44, about a Russian secret police officer framed for treason in 1950.

The officer, played by Hardy, is sent to a remote outpost, where he uncovers a series of muders tied to a government conspiracy. The film also stars Joel Kinnaman (Robocop, The Killing), Gary Oldman and his Dawn of the Planet of the Apes co-star Jason Clarke, and Black Swan‘s Vincet Cassel.

According to Deadline, the film has been given an April 17, 2015 release date from 20th Century Fox. For those keeping track at home, that places it two weeks after Fast & Furious 7 and the same day as Paul Blart Mall »

New stills from Exodus: Gods and Kings

15 July 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hot on the heels of the first teaser trailer [which you can see here], Century Fox has released a trio of stills from its upcoming biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, which see Christian Bale’s (American Hustle) Moses joined by director Ridley Scott (Prometheus)…

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure Exodus: Gods and Kings, the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Exodus is set for release on December 12th 2014 and also features Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), John Turturro (Transformers: Dark of the Moon), Ben Kingsley »

When Will Charlton Heston's Character Show Up In This Planet Of The Apes Series?

14 July 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Here.s the unusual part of being a prequel to one of the seminal works of science-fiction cinema. Audiences will look at you and wait to see how you connect to the movie they have burned into their imaginations. A slight disconnect of materials plagued Ridley Scott.s Prometheus. All anyone wanted (the director, as well, it seems) was an explanation as to how it tied to Alien. And a similar issue is starting to crop up with our current box-office leader, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Where is the ape-hating Charlton Heston? We found out. Knowing that Matt Reeves already has committed to another Apes movie, I started to ask him during a recent, exclusive interview, if some of the important pieces had moved into place yet. I wanted to know if they had yet discussed a title, but he says they have not. But when I »

Scott Derrickson talks working with Jon Spaihts on Doctor Strange

11 July 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was announced last month that Scott Derrickson (Sinister) would be directing the adaptation of Doctor Strange for Phase Three of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, and it was a couple of weeks later that Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) had been brought on to pen the script.

In an interview with Movie Pilot, Derrickson talked about working with Spaihts saying, “obviously it’s been announced there’s a writer on Doctor Strange but in that situation it’s maybe my favourite screenwriter in town. I’d read four of his scripts before ever meeting him. I think that the opportunity to work with great talent and people who can supersede my abilities in various areas is extremely exciting to me. Like, Jon Spaihts is a genius.”

Derrickson has written four of the five features he’s worked on, so there is a chance he will have some involvement in the script writing proess. »

Scott Derrickson Talks Up Marvel's Doctor Strange Screenwriter Jon Spaihts

10 July 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Just weeks after news broke that Scott Derrickson would be helming Doctor Strange, news had followed that Prometheus screenwriter Jon Spaihts would be tackling the script. While Derrickson has writing credits on all but one of his horror/supernatural movies, and then some, Movie Pilot asked the filmmaker during an interview late last month if he would be taking on more directing-only gigs starting with Marvel's Socerer Supreme adaptation. "Not necessarily," he answered. "Obviously it’s been announced there’s a writer on Doctor Strange but in that situation it’s maybe my favorite screenwriter in town. I’d read four of his scripts before ever meeting him. I think that the opportunity to work with great talent and people who can supersede my abilities in various areas is extremely exciting to me. Like, Jon Spaihts is a genius." It's presumed that Derrickson will only be directing Doctor Strange, but »

Marvelous DA7E 54: 'Guardians' Blue Itself, 'Powers' Lives, Batman V. Fakery

9 July 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

What is this? It's a column where a guy who spells his first name weird speculates and spoils superhero movies by discussing news and rumors. It includes spoilers, maybe. Be wary if you don't like spoilers. 

This Week! The Calm Before The Con. Guardians of the Galaxy lets tons of material out, Playstations' Powers is still alive!  Batman V. Superman fan scripts become an issue.

Did everyone have a good Fourth of July holiday? I mostly sat in my room and watched The X-Files on Netflix in between seeing people and fireworks while eating barbecue. And I read a bunch of Daredevil comics, because they are fantastic and Marvel Unlimited is a great program and app that gives me access to hundreds of comics on demand from all eras.

That sounded like a plug, and I wish. Marvel - buddy - pay me to plug your comics stuff. Or pay me in comics. »

Check Out Trailers for Exodus: Gods and Kings & Gone Girl

9 July 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A pair of movie trailers for some upcoming high profile films have recently been released, so I decided it'd be easier to lump them both together into one convenient spot for you guys to check them out.  Come inside to see the first trailer for Ridley Scott's upcoming Biblical epic, and an all new trailer for David Fincher's incredible looking Gone Girl.

I'm going to kick this off with the first trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings, which landed later last night.  Yesterday also saw the release of the first posters for the upcoming Ridley Scott film...and I hated them.  I mean, really and truly, I feel they are some of the worst movie posters I've seen in a long time (and I get a ton of Indie ones in my inbox).  I was hoping the trailer would banish those posters by blowing me away, but that's not the case. »

Holy Moses! Christian Bale gets biblical in Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer

9 July 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

2014 is the year of the Bible.  After March’s Flood tale Noah saw a drenched Russell Crowe and Emma Watson fight for survival, another story from the Old Testament is parting the Red Sea and heading to theatres in December.

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings sees Christian Bale as Moses squaring off against his adopted brother Ramses played by an unrecognizable Joel Edgerton.  The 3D film covers the familiar story of the brothers-turned-enemies as Moses rises up against the Pharaoh Ramses in his quest to set 600,000 slaves free while the deadly plagues rain down on Egypt.

Edgerton gives his best Yul Brenner impression while a bearded Bale shows he’s adept at riding a horse and wielding a sword in the heat of battle.    The trailer certainly gives new meaning to the term “epic” and is exactly what we have come to expect from the director of Gladiator and Prometheus. »
