Jennifer Lawrence And Chris Pratt May Be Passengers In Morten Tyldum-Directed Sci-Fi Romance

6 February 2015 7:43 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After years in development, the sci-fi romance Passengers is finally coming together, with an incredibly talented pair of actors lined up to star. Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings PlaybookThe Hunger Games) and new Hollywood It Guy Chris Pratt (Guardians of the GalaxyJurassic World) are in talks to lead the project, which Morten Tyldum will direct as his follow-up to Oscar-nominated historical drama The Imitation Game.

The ambitious story involves a passenger (Pratt) on an interstellar voyage to a distant planet who wakes up from cryogenic sleep ninety years early and, feeling doomed to a life of utter solitude, makes the difficult decision to awaken a female passenger (Lawrence), resulting in an unconventional romance.

Passengers has been in development for years, with Keanu Reeves and Rachel McAdams at one point lined up to star in a Brian Kirk-directed take. Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts, who also worked on Marvel’s Doctor Strange, »

Jennifer Lawrence And Chris Pratt Are 'Passengers' In Sci-Fi Romance

6 February 2015 4:23 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Some projects stuck in development hell never get made, or when they do reach the screen after various writers, producers, directors, and more have had put their hands on it, the film hardly resembles what sparked all the heat in the first place. And then, every once in a while, a long brewing project manages to survive years of false starts, and put the best foot forward possible. And it looks like that's what's happening with "Passengers." Shepherded for years by Keanu Reeves, who at one time was lined up to star alongside Rachel McAdams, the movie is now going ahead with a fresh cast, new director and it's pretty first rate all around. Oscar nominated "The Imitation Game" helmer Morten Tyldum will direct Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and fast-rising star Chris Pratt ("Guardians Of The Galaxy," "Jurassic World") in the Jon Spaihts ("Prometheus") penned flick. Not bad, right? Both »

'Passengers' Targets Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt

6 February 2015 3:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are in early talks to star in Passengers. The project has been in development for several years, with The Weinstein Company and Focus Features each taking a crack at the story, before it was picked up by Sony this past December. Keanu Reeves was attached to the movie for several years, although it seems he is no longer involved. Reese Witherspoon and Rachel McAdams were attached as the female lead at different points during the development process, with that role now going to Jennifer Lawrence. The Wrap reports that Jennifer Lawrence's deal may not go through, though, due to her busy schedule.

The story centers on a man (Chris Pratt) who is one of over 5,000 passengers on a century-long journey to a distant new planet. When the man's cryogenic sleep pod fails, with 90 years left to go on this trip, he faces the prospect »

Chris Pratt in Talks to Star Opposite Jennifer Lawrence in Sony’s ‘Passengers’ (Exclusive)

6 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Guardians of the Galaxy’s” Chris Pratt is in early talks to star opposite Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence in Morten Tyldum’s space-set love story “Passengers,” though the actress’ busy schedule may ultimately prevent her from closing a deal, TheWrap has learned. “Passengers” has a long, tortured development history, and after stops at the Weinstein Company and Focus Features, the project finally crash-landed at Sony back in December. Tyldum, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker behind “The Imitation Game,” came onboard shortly after.

J-Law, Pratt Up For Sci-Fi "Passengers"

6 February 2015 2:44 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are in early talks to star in Morten Tydlum's sci-fi tale "Passengers" at Sony Pictures.

Jon Spaihts ("Doctor Strange," "Prometheus") penned the script which is set on a spacecraft transporting thousands of colonists. A malfunction takes place in one of its sleep chambers, causing a single passenger to be awakened ninety years before anyone else.

Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he decides to wake up a second passenger, thus beginning a unique love story. The likes of Keanu Reeves, Reese Witherspoon and Rachel McAdams were previously attached to the project at different times.

Of the pair, Lawerence's involvement is the most in question due to her busy schedule. Neal Moritz, Ori Marmur, Stephen Hamel and Michael Maher will produce.

Alien Space Jockey Maquette from Sideshow Collectibles

6 February 2015 1:04 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It sat in the chair, staring into the massive stargazer, seemingly observing the constellations of deep space. When Dallas, Kane, and Lambert approached the space jockey, it looked from one angle like it could be alive, but a closer inspection revealed the burst-open chest and the stillness of death. Serving as a grim foreshadowing for the crew of the Nostromo and a source of wonder and mystery for the audience, the deceased Space Jockey created by the late, great H.R. Giger for Ridley Scott’s Alien is a truly memorable sci-fi creature, and Sideshow Collectibles pays tribute to the enigmatic being with their Space Jockey maquette.

Space Jockey Maquette:

“”I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Space Jockey Maquette from Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror classic, Alien.

Long before Prometheus uncovered the origins of the Engineer and his species, the mysterious ‘Space Jockey »

Take a Closer Look at the Future in New Images of 'Tomorrowland'

3 February 2015 9:16 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Disney has done a pretty good job of keeping the sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland under wraps. We've seen a teaser trailer and a Super Bowl spot, but we still haven't seen much from Brad Bird's summer sci-fi film, and most of the footage of the titular future city goes by so fast that we can't get a great look at it. But thankfully, three new images of Tomorrowland have appeared at the film's official website, and you can take a closer look at the city that still seems to be under construction. There's some gorgeous architecture here, cool vehicles, and clearly some things which don't have a clear function yet. Anyway, check out the photos! Here's the three new images from Tomorrowland from TakeMeToTomorrowland.com: You can still watch the teaser trailer for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland right here. Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird (of The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol »

"What if there was a place... where nothing was impossible?"

Sundance: ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’ Wins Grand Jury, Audience Awards

31 January 2015 6:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s visually inventive comedy-drama about the friendship between a misfit teenager and a classmate diagnosed with leukemia, received both the grand jury prize and the audience award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival on Saturday night. Part cancer-themed tearjerker and part tribute to obsessive movie love, “Me and Earl” was acquired by Fox Searchlight earlier this week in one of the festival’s biggest deals.

This marks the third year in a row that one movie has taken both top prizes at Sundance, following the lead of “Fruitvale Station” in 2013 and “Whiplash” last year. “Me and Earl’s” victory was even more noteworthy given what many considered one of the stronger U.S. dramatic competitions in recent memory, with strong critical and audience buzz for “Dope,” “The Witch” and “The Diary of a Teenage Girl,” all of which also received prizes.

Madame Bovary Trailer: Mia Wasikowska Sells Us on Another Costume Drama

30 January 2015 9:35 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It may not have received tremendous reviews out of the festivals last fall, but Sophie Barthes‘s Madame Bovary has a number of things going for it. On the top of the list is that it stars the wonderful Mia Wasikowska and may just be one of our last chances of watching her in a costume drama that isn’t Alice in Wonderland 2 for a while. Wasikowska has otherwise been on a roll lately with her varied roles since the first Alice movie five years ago. In 2014 alone, we got to see her in Only Lovers Left AliveThe DoubleTracks and Maps to the Stars. If we didn’t also have the opportunity to catch Bovary at Telluride or Toronto, then 2015 is sure to be another good year for us fans of the young actress, between this and Guillermo del Toro’s period-piece horror film Crimson Peak.

'Passengers' Lines Up 'Imitation Game' Director

27 January 2015 3:30 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After being dropped by The Weinstein Company back in March, the sci-fi thriller Passengers has a new lease on life, with The Imitation Game director Morten Tyldum now circling the project. Sony picked up Passengers late last year, with the studio considering this sci-fi love story a major priority. Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones) was previously attached to direct when the project was at The Weinstein Company, which had originally been set for release on April 3, 2015.

Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange) wrote the screenplay, which follows a colonist (Keanu Reeves) travelling with over 5,000 passengers on a century-long journey to a new world. The colonist's sleep chamber malfunctions, causing him to wake up 90 years before any of the other passengers. Faced with dying alone on this ship, he wakes up a female journalist, when they realize that they need to save everyone else on board. Rachel McAdams was initially set to »

The Imitation Game’s Morten Tyldum Eyed To Direct Sci-Fi Love Story Passengers

27 January 2015 12:59 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Oh what a difference an Oscar nod makes! Just recently, The Imitation Game helmer Morten Tyldum found himself nominated for the Best Director Academy Award. And now, the prestigious honor of simply being on the shortlist appears to have sent his Hollywood stock rising, as Deadline reports that Sony is keen for him to direct Passengers.

Dubbed a sci-fi love story, the project’s been kicking around for a few years now. Penned by Doctor Strange and Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts, it bears a compelling central premise, so it seems surprising this wasn’t already put into production:

Passengers takes place on a spacecraft transporting thousands of people to a distant colony planet and has a malfunction in one of its sleep chambers. As a result, a single passenger is awakened 90 years before anyone else. Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he eventually decides to wake up a second passenger, »

Mission: Impossible 5 moved up five months to avoid Star Wars: The Force Awakens

26 January 2015 1:47 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, it was only a matter of time…

In what is sure to be a wise move on Paramount Pictures’ part, the studio has shifted the release of the fifth instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise to avoid confrontation with Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, bringing the date forward almost a full five months to July 31st 2015.

Mission: Impossible 5 was originally slated to arrive on Christmas Day, one week after the release of J.J. Abrams’ surefire blockbuster. Mi:5 becomes the second film to move clear of The Force Awakens after Kung Fu Panda 3, which will now land in March 2016.

Mission: Impossible 5 is directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), and sees franchise veterans Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner returning alongside Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) and Sean Harris (Prometheus).

Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' Lines Up Chiwetel Ejiofor

22 January 2015 4:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel has entered into negotiations with 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor for an unspecified supporting role in their Phase Two sequel Doctor Strange. Variety's sources reveal that talks are in very early stages, but the studio is "very high" on the actor for a role. Benedict Cumberbatch was confirmed as the title character back in October.

We also reported last month that Marvel was eyeing Morgan Freeman to play the Ancient One. In the comics, the Ancient One was the previous Sorcerer Supreme, who served as a mentor to Stephen Strange. However, it isn't known if that story will be told in this Marvel Phase Three adventure, following an August report that revealed Doctor Strange will not be an origin story, starting with the character already established as a superhero.

Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil, Sinister) is directing from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), although it isn't known when production may begin. »

Alien franchise: ranking the movies in order of quality

22 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alien and Aliens are classics. But how do the other sequels, prequel and spin-offs compare? We try to rank them in descending order...

Ranking any franchise is a personal and difficult process, but the Alien series represents its own challenges. Were you more affected by the intimate shocks of the 1979 original, or the more action-led 1986 sequel? Were you impressed by Alien 3's commitment to its bleak tone, or irked by its soupy darkness?

You're sure to have your own opinions as to how the Alien movies should be ranked, though we'd wager that, like us, you'd place the Alien Vs Predator spin-offs quite far down the list. But then there's Ridley Scott's prequel, Prometheus, a film some might rank far above Jean-Pierre Jeunet's quirky Alien Resurrection, and perhaps even David Fincher's Alien 3.

Accepting, then, that the ranking below is very much down to personal taste, »

New Documentary on Surrealist H.R. Giger, Who Designed the 'Alien' Xenomorph, Coming Soon

13 January 2015 11:24 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It was the hammer-headed Xenomorph from Ridley Scott's 1979 "Alien," with its macabre, womblike set design, that won famed surrealist H.R. Giger his Oscar in 1980 for Best Achievement in Special Effects. Now, Icarus Films and KimStim have announced the joint acquisition of North American distribution rights -- including theatrical, home video and TV -- to "Dark Star: H.R. Giger's World," directed by Belinda Sallin. 2015 release date forthcoming. Giger, who died in 2014, designed out-of-this-world sets and scenes for "Poltergeist 2," "The Other Side," "Alien 3," "Species" and "Prometheus," to name a few, along with mind-bending cover art for Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Debbie Harry and Danzig. Giger was recently featured in the terrific documentary "Jodorowsky's Dune," chronicling the thwarted attempt by Alejandro Jodorowsky, who approached Giger to contribute VFX designs, to mount the Frank Herbert »

Alien 3: the story ideas that never made it to the screen

12 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

During its fraught production, Alien 3 went through dozens of drafts. We look at some of the story ideas that never made it to the screen...

When the credits rolled on 1986's Aliens, the inevitable question from many cinemagoers was, "What happens next?"

For 20th Century Fox, and writer-producers David Giler and Walter Hill, it took nearly six years to figure out an answer to that question. Certainly, when Aliens was in production, director James Cameron had some ideas about a sequel; he once spoke about the prospect of Ripley, Hicks and young Newt - a makeshift family thrown together by that film's events - meeting up again for a second sequel to Alien.

“I know that James Cameron had planned to have Hicks, Ripley and me in Alien 3, to have a family-type thing", Newt actress Carrie Henn said in 1995.

A year after Aliens came out, Cameron was unequivocal »
