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. »

‘Captain Nemo’ Script Sells

15 June 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar may be best known for their writing on the hit Superman show Smallville, but the duo responsible for the screenplays of Shangahi Noon and I Am Number Four are returning to the big screen with Captain Nemo. Their latest spec script has just been bought by Sony and will give us a new take on the classic Jules Verne character of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea fame.

Joe Roth and Palak Patel are producing, which should give the project a lot of momentum given the fact they currently have the box office success Maleficent in cinemas and are now working on the sequel to Tim Burton’s billion dollar success Alice In Wonderland, titled Through The Looking Glass. Gough and Millar will also take on executive producer roles.

Sony may wish to act quickly on their recent acquisition as Disney are also working »

Jules Verne’s driven, mercurial hero Captain Nemo has been a fascination for filmmakers for ages. His adventures in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea have been adapted several times for screens big and small, but that isn’t stopping new writers and studios throwing their hats into the ring, with Sony buying up a script from Smallville creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.The co-writers, who more recently worked on films such as I Am Number Four and The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor, won producer Joe Roth’s eye with their spec script, which boasts a new take on the antihero explorer and scientific genius who builds a sub called the Nautilus. Roth, in turn, sent the script to Sony.Though Roth has a close relationship with Disney – he’s helped make Alice In Wonderland and this year’s Maleficent happen – the Mouse House already has a Nemo update drifting through development. »

First Photo: Ya Adaptation "Fallen"

1 May 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Diving into the genre of young-adult film adaptations is a dangerous proposition these days. "Harry Potter" and "The Hunger Games" are two of the biggest film franchises there are and cross all demographics. "Twilight" is more female-oriented and less critically acclaimed, but is also a box-office juggernaut. Even though this year's "Divergent" may not be on the same level, only an idiot wouldn't call it a hit with major potential.

Yet there have been numerous bodies left in their wake. "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," "Beautiful Creatures," "The Golden Compass," "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant," "I Am Number Four," "The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising," "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events," "City of Ember," "Stormbreaker," "The Spiderwick Chronicles" and more.

Today, Yahoo has premiered the first photo from the latest to give it a go - a film adaptation of Lauren Kate's book series "Fallen". Some »

Alex Pettyfer Dating Model Marloes Horst

10 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Heartthrob Alex Pettyfer has a new girlfriend: new Mabelline model Marloes Horst.

Pettyfer, star of I Am Number Four and this year’s Endless Love, most famously dated Glee’s Dianna Agron and was rumored to be dating Elvis’ granddaughter, Riley Keough over the past few years. It appears that, once again, the English actor is single no more.

Alex Pettyfer Celebrates Birthday With New Girlfriend

Rumors of a relationship swirled after Horst posted a photo of the two at Disneyland celebrating Pettyfer’s 24th birthday to both Twitter and Instagram on April 10. In the photo, Pettyfer and Horst have their arms around each other, posing sweetly for the picture, in front of what appears to be Winnie the Pooh’s Honey, or ‘Hunny,’ Pots. And, if the intimate pose wasn’t enough, Horst captioned the photo, “Happy birthday baby.”

The Ten Greatest Ya Movie Characters

7 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To celebrate the UK release of Divergent, it seems appropriate to rank the defining characters within the Ya (Young Adult) movie sub-genre as audiences gear up to meet more new teenage faces.

With their relentless popularity and financial success, it seems everyone in Hollywood is keen to jump on the bandwagon and adapt a beloved Ya novel to the big-screen, but some tales fare better than others, and some characters linger in the mind and cling to the heart more than others.

Here’s are selection of the ten greatest characters from the films monopolising the global box-office.

10. ‘John Smith’ – I Am Number Four (2011)

Whilst the film itself didn’t blow everyone away, the arrival of alien-raced teenager ‘John Smith’ saw the birth of an interesting and smartly composed figure. Somewhat similar to Superman, Alex Pettyfer’s character is one of nine people gifted with special abilities, his homeland of »

The Twilight Years – Divergent and The Rise & Rise of the Ya Movie Adaptation

3 April 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With the release of the latest teen sensation Divergent starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James this Friday, it seems only fitting to examine the phenomena that is the Ya (Young Adult) movie adaptation and why they continue to increase in popularity and box-office success. Whether the setting be fantastical, dystopian, futuristic or magical, there is clearly something entrancing about these literary tales being projected on the silver screen which keeps bringing audiences back for more and more…

Big screen adaptations of beloved young adult novels date back decades; films such as the original Narnia tales, Freaky Friday, The Princess Bride and particularly The Outsiders were huge successes because they were able to teleport readers into a visual representation of the worlds and stories they held so dearly. In modern times however things are a little different. Creatively, cinema is running on empty; the vast majority of releases filling multiplexes are either adaptations (be that novel, »

Shade VFX expands to NYC

25 March 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

In a move that bucks the gloomy trend prevalent in the Us-based effects industry, CEO Bryan Godwin has announced (25) that Shade will open a facility in New York.

Godwin, the founder, owner and visual effects supervisor at the Santa Monica-based company, cited the favourable economic climate and a greater client base in New York as reasons for the expansion.

The new studio is located in Manhattan and Godwin plans to build up a “medium-sized staff” over the coming months. The facility is currently in production on a DJ Caruso project, with whom Shade previously collaborated on I Am Number Four.

Shade executive producer David Van Dyke, who has been with the company since its inception five years ago, has been promoted to vice-president. Van Dyke will continue to report directly to Godwin (pictured).

“We’ve been researching expanding to an incentivised area and New York was a no-brainer for us,” said Godwin »

Box Office Predictions: 'Divergent' Will Win the Weekend, But Where Will 'Muppets' Placec

20 March 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Divergent is your clear winner this weekend, perfectly placed for young female adults against a weekend of Ncaa basketball. Predictions for this title run the gambit, I've seen $10 million higher than my number, but I don't sense quite the groundswell here. I'm going with $53.2 million, way better than films like Mortal Instruments and I am Number Four, but nowhere near the Twilight and Hunger Games of the world. Muppets Most Wanted is a full 22 points lower on RottenTomatoes than the 2011 version, it's safe to say the magic is subsiding. The first one opened at $29 million if you'd like to plan for a sequel bump, but I'm going with $25.5 million. Yep, this will be a slightly abbreviated Oracle (I'm one of the guys watching games) but I'd be remiss if I didn't at least mention The Grand Budapest Hotel. Were you aware it cleared $55,000 per theater last weekendc Having only 66 theaters »
