Rumour: Are these Marvel’s casting wishlists for Jessica Jones and Luke Cage?

19 November 2014 11:51 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A list of names has appeared online pertaining to be the potential actors for Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Luke Cage…

Marvel’s upcoming Defenders project on Netlix, which promises an interlinking narrative and a grittier side of the McU, is a bit of a mystery to us. Save for a few names (Charlie Cox for Daredevil, Rosario Dawson for Night Nurse), we don’t know much of who’s involved. Today though, Marvel’s casting wishlist might have appeared online.

Deadline claims that The Divide’s Marin Ireland, Don’t Trust The B- star Krysten Ritter, Percy Jackson’s Annabeth Alexandra Daddario, I Am Number Four’s Teresa Palmer and Arrow’s Huntress Jessica De Gouw (pictured, in that order, above) are all on the shortlist for superhero detective Jessica Jones.

UK Trailer: "Robot Overlords"

12 November 2014 7:12 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Some films just come out of nowhere, and the trailer for one such project has arrived. The selling point? It's Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley taking on robot oppressors. Jon Wright, the filmmaker behind the solidly regarded indie creature feature "Grabbers," has co-written and directed the $21 million-budget "Robot Overlords".

Callan McAuliffe ("I Am Number Four," "Kite") leads the cast of this teen-skewing film in which Earth has been conquered by alien robots with human survivors essentially under house arrest - if they leave, an electronic implant will alert the robots who will then target them for incineration.

Amongst this, a gang of teenagers figure out how to deactivate theirs and head off in search of a father who has gone missing. Embankment Films is slated to release the film on March 19th in the United Kingdom.

But before that happens, the latest Sparks novel being turned into a film – 2009’s The Choice – has just cast more actors, with Alexandra Daddario, Tom Welling, Maggie Grace and Tom Wilkinson joining the ensemble.Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’s Benjamin Walker and I Am Number Four’s Teresa Palmer are headlining this one, starring in the tale of Travis Parker, a man who would appear to be living the perfect live.

Where women are concerned, he’s quite content to be the love-‘em-and-leave-‘em type until Gabby Holland moves in next door. Though there's initially more frustration than »

Box Office: ‘Maze Runner’ Sprints Past Liam Neeson With $32.5 Million

21 September 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Maze Runner” showed that sometimes the weekend box office is a marathon, not a sprint.

Twentieth Century Fox’s adaptation of James Dashner’s post-apocalyptic novel took awhile to build up steam, but found its core audience by the weekend’s midpoint. It debuted to $32.5 million from 3,604 locations, in line with projections. That’s good news for the studio, which hopes to turn the story of a group of teenagers battling nasty creatures in a dangerous labyrinth into a franchise.

“All of the elements came together in accomplishing something that no one ever tried by launching a young adult film like this in September,” said Chris Aronson, Fox’s domestic distribution chief. “We like to stand out whenever we can and we selected this release date in order to be the first event film of the fall.”

The unique opening date allowed “The Maze Runner” to jet ahead of »

Obscure comic book movies that nearly got the greenlight

19 September 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We have a look at some of the more obscure comic book movie ideas which nearly made it to the big screen…

We've recently been investigating the pile of nearly-made-its in the ever-growing world of cinematic comic book adaptations. You could be forgiven for thinking Hollywood will strap wads of cash to any old comic book writer who stumbles past their door, but so far we’ve written approximately 5,000 words that say otherwise.

First, we delved into DC’s chequered past and found heaps of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman projects that we’ll sadly never get to see (and some other projects we’re quite glad we’ll never have to sit through). We then did the same for Marvel, unearthing plans for a Paul McCartney Silver Surfer rock opera, James Cameron’s bizarre Spider-Man script ideas and an amazingly-cast Dazzler animation from the 1980s. 

Now, we turn our »

16 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Maze Runner will finally hit theaters this Friday, September 19th.

Published in October 2009 and based upon the first book in a bestselling series by James Dashner, the novel became a New York Times Best Seller and captured the imaginations of readers around the world. Fans have described it as a combination of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and the legendary television series Lost.

Books to film – especially young adult adaptations – are big bucks at the box office. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga franchises have collectively grossed more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.

Over the weekend, Variety reported:

The 20th Century Fox release racked up a strong $8.3 million across five markets last weekend, with debuts that compared favorably to another young adult hit, “Divergent.” “The Maze Runner” is »

8 September 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Outside of the success of the musical comedy series "Glee," Dianna Agron hasn't really had much success on the big screen. The Family and I Am Number Four were both misfires and weren't loved by audiences or critics.

And now we have a first look photo that features Agron with her hair blown back, a sly smile on her face and a gun in her hand. Could this turn the actress into another female action star? Look below! Here's the first photo from Mark Polish's Headlock from International Film Trust: Headlock is written and directed by Mark Polish (writer of The Astronaut Farmer, Twin Falls Idaho, Stay Cool). After new CIA recruit, Kelley Chandler (Polish) is seriously injured during a mission, »

Callan McAuliffe in Beneath The Harvest Sky.

After Callan McAuliffe landed roles in two studio films, Flipped and I Am Number Four, several years ago, the teenager says he naively expected a glittering Hollywood career would ensue.

That.s now how the actor.s career has panned out but he shot four indie movies around the world in the past 18 months, working with Samuel L. Jackson, Sir Ben Kingsley and Gillian Anderson.

.I am no A-lister,. the Los Angeles-based McAuliffe, 19, told If today on a visit to Sydney as a national ambassador for Unicef promoting children.s rights. "I would rather be a working actor than a mega-famous star..

.I have to audition for every role but when you get the job, it.s very rewarding. I.ve been very fortunate, with a bit of luck and hard work. I have done some diverse movies, although some are not my type of movie. »

'The Maze Runner' Trailer: Finally a Different Kind of Young-Adult Movie

29 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Twilight was not the first so-called young-adult book to ever become a movie franchise, but it was most definitely a game changer. Once it started making money hand over sparkly fist, every studio in town started snapping up everything in the best seller section of the nearest Barnes & Noble, and the result has been a rash of movies like I Am Number Four, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Beautiful Creatures, Divergent, Vampire Academy, The Host and The Hunger Games. They're all about attractive teenagers with some kind of special talent that makes them a unique part of a world-changing story. Usually there is a love triangle, and a handful of supporting friends, and the bad guys are never singular villains, they're cogs in some larger, institutional structure...

Honest Trailer: 'Divergent' is just 'The Hunger Games' minus games

23 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Divergent and fellow young-adult series The Hunger Games have a few things in common—enough things to confuse Screen Junkies, creators of the always-amusing Honest Trailers, into thinking that Divergent actually is The Hunger Games.

In the new Honest Trailer for 2014’s Divergent, the narrator cuts his voiceover short to point out they’ve already made a trailer for The Hunger Games. “So it’s the same movie but without the actual games?” he says once he discovers it is, in fact, Divergent. “That sounds horrible!”

Once that’s settled, the narrator launches into his description: “Enter a world inspired »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening Of The Purge: Anarchy In St. Louis

7 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In 2013, the country responded to the provocative concept that on one night every year, any and all crime is made legal. Audiences turned The Purge into a surprise summer hit as the film debuted at No. 1 with an astonishing $34.1 million weekend at the domestic box office.

After witnessing the response to the film and listening to the conversations that it provoked, James DeMonaco (writer/director of The Purge and writer of The Negotiator, Assault on Precinct 13) quickly returned to the explosive universe that he created with an even more arresting idea for a sequel: placing the audience outside on the streets during the annual Purge.

A speculative thriller that shows us what occurs during The Purge outside of the confines of a suburban neighborhood, The Purge: Anarchy returns us to a dystopic future. Our government, now re-engineered by the New Founders of America (Nfa), has sanctioned its annual 12-hour »

Teresa Palmer Taking Lead Female Role in Remake of 'Point Break'

16 June 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After getting caught up with superpowered aliens in I Am Number Four and recovering zombies in Warm Bodies, the lovely Australian actress Teresa Palmer is heading into remake territory. Alcon Entertainment has announced that Palmer is taking the female lead in their remake of the action thriller Point Break starring Edgar Ramirez (who replaced the departed Gerard Butler) in the role of Bodhi, originated by Patrick Swayze, and Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, the role played by Keanu Reeves. It's not clear how pivotal of a role Palmer will have, but if it follows suit of the original, she won't have a large amount of screentime. Our best guess is that Palmer will play Utah's significant other in the film, but maybe the remake changes the story a bit and allows for a female role to get more involved in the story. Palmer is currently busy shooting Triple Nine with director John Hillcoat, »

Teresa Palmer in Talks for Point Break Remake

16 June 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Point Break remake has certainly sparked plenty of debate – namely as to whether or not one is needed. Gerard Butler was cast, then he left. Now, having finally set on Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey who will play Bodhi and Johnny Utah respectively, it’s time to add a female to the cast list and Teresa Palmer might be just the woman.

The Australian actress has starred in Warm Bodies with Nicholas Hoult and I Am Number Four with Alex Pettyfer and will soon be seen in Kill Me Three Times and Knight Of Cups.

A final decision on Palmer’s casting is likely to be made soon as principal photography is set to start at the end this month. The film will be directed by Ericson Core and follows an undercover police officer who goes undercover as a surfer in order to infiltrate a group of bank thieves. »

Smallville Scribes Sell Captain Nemo Script

16 June 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have certainly not been resting on their laurels since their phenomenally successful show Smallville came to an end in 2011. Having written the film I Am Number Four, and penned several episodes of the 2011 series Charlie’s Angels, they have now sold a script to Columbia Pictures that features one of the most enduring characters in literature – Captain Nemo.

As the creation of French author Jules Verne, Captain Nemo made his first appearance in the classic novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea in 1870. A mysterious and enigmatic character, he is revealed to be the scientific genius son of an Indian Raja and, as such, is also known as Prince Dakkar. Obsessed with marine exploration and discovery, he invents a deep-sea submarine named the Nautilus, and embarks on incredible adventures. A main feature of the character is his extensive loathing of Imperialism – particularly as perpetrated by the British Empire. »
