20 August 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

6 movie adaptations that, like 'The Giver,' came too late

15 August 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you were to go see The Giver this weekend without knowing a thing about the book it was based on, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s some sort of suburban Hunger Games ripoff. In reality, Lois Lowry’s 1993 novel predates just about every modern Ya film franchise, from The Hunger Games to Divergent to The Maze Runner—you might even say it established the authoritarian dystopia motif that’s in vogue these days. Unfortunately, all of those other books beat it to the big screen. Instead of looking like the groundbreaking, thoughtful story that’s in the novel, »

Confusing Edge of Tomorrow Blu-ray box art suggests another name change

15 August 2014 4:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If Warner Bros. were looking to make back some of the money lost of the disappointing box office take for Edge of Tomorrow, this released Us box art may not be the best foot forward.

According to the Blu-Ray box art for the movie, they’ve changed the title again to Live. Die. Repeat., with the Edge of Tomorrow title tucked away in the corner. This is either a brave design choice, or Warner Bros. attempting to distance the DVD and Blu-Ray release from the name Edge of Tomorrow which has, unfairly, been branded a failure.

Check out the box art below:

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped—untrained and ill-equipped—into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. »

Olga Kurylenko weighs in on losing the Wonder Woman role to Gal Gadot

14 August 2014 11:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before Gal Gadot landed the coveted role of Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, two other names were in contention for the part – French actress Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), and Ukranian actress and former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion).

For the first time, Kurylenko has spoken up about losing out on playing the iconic heroine, in an interview with Desde Hollywood at the red carpet premiere of The November Man. When asked for her thoughts, Kurylenko said:

“If I could have been [Wonder Woman]? Well, because, everyone was saying that it was a possibility. It did cross my mind. But it’s fine, you know. There are many other roles. I am very happy for the girl that’s got the part. I am looking forward to seeing it.”

A pretty gracious response for someone who lost an iconic role to someone with considerably less exeprience. »

Olga Kurylenko Comments On Being Up For 'Wonder Woman' In Batman V Superman: Doj

14 August 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Of course we know that Fast And Furious actress Gal Gadot ultimately ended up with the role, but back when rumors were flying around left right and center as to who would play Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman, the far more experienced Olga Kurylenko was also on the shortlist (along with Elodie Yung). Kurylenko had previously starred in the likes of Hitman, To The Wonder, Centurion and most recently Oblivion alongside Tom Cruise, and seemed to be the fan-favorite for the role out of the actresses mentioned. When DesdeHollywood asked her about it, the Ukrainian beauty says it did "cross her mind", but that she's happy for Gadot, and looking forward to the movie. "If I could have been [Wonder Woman]..well, because, everyone was saying that it was a possibility. It did cross my mind. But it’s fine, you know. There are many other roles. I am very happy »

The winners and losers of summer 2014

13 August 2014 2:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel soared while Adam Sandler floundered. Simon takes a closer look at the winners and losers of 2014's summer blockbuster season...

As another summer blockbuster season comes to an end, here's our annual reflection on what worked, what didn't, and who was left with egg on their face.

It's been a surprisingly strong summer season, in truth. Sure, there've been a few misses here and there, but we've found much to enjoy in many of the season's big releases, both in terms of widescreen spectacle and thought-provoking ideas.

So as the summer of 2014 winds to a close, here's what we took out of it... 

Marvel

Taking its usual place in the 'winners' section of articles like these is Marvel Studios, which opened and closed summer blockbuster movie season this year with considerable style.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier garnered strong reviews, and comfortably outperformed its predecessor at the box office. »

Captain America 2: 2014's most subversive superhero film?

30 July 2014 8:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier taps into current fears about surveillance and data-mining. Ryan looks at its subversive undertones...

Nb: This article contains mild spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Oblivion.

Every generation carries with it a heavy payload of shared anxiety. A fear of nuclear annihilation permeated the Cold War era. The 1970s brought with it a distrust of leadership, as Richard Nixon's presidential authority crumbled in the wake of the Watergate scandal.

These collective preoccupations constantly find their way into the stories we share, not least in movies: Cold War paranoia manifested itself in 50s invasion science fiction; the distrust of the 1970s found its expression in such conspiracy thrillers as The Parallax View, The Marathon Man and Capricorn One.

For several years after the global financial crisis of 2008, a resentment towards banks, billionaires and corporate types became a common sight in movies. The comedy »

Watch: Pierce Brosnan is Tough in Full 'The November Man' Trailer

23 July 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You know we use to call you? The November Man. Because after you passed through, nothing lived." After being James Bond for four films, Pierce Brosnan is back in action mode in The November Man. We've already seen a teaser trailer for the film, and now the theatrical trailer shows off even more of the action thriller. While the plot seems generic, there's still something about this that seems appealing. Maybe it's just having Brosnan in this kind of role again at an older age, not unlike Liam Neeson. The supporting characters leave something to be desired, but that doesn't seem like it's ruining anything all that much. Watch below! Here's the full trailer for Roger Donaldson's The November Man, originally from Apple: The November Man is directed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job, Thirteen Days) and written by Michael Finch (Predators) and Karl Gajdusek (Oblivion), based on a »
