Watch Noomi Rapace Get Abducted in The First Clip From ‘Rupture’

16 November 2016 3:14 PM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

If the new trailer didn’t traumatize both Jon and myself already, the poster for the sci-fi adventure thriller Rupture, starring Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, The Drop) and Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four, The Shield), has spiders crawling all over it. Rupture is a science-fiction thriller about a single mother (Rapace) […] »

Writers' Room Formed for Robert Downey Jr.'s 'Sherlock Holmes 3'

28 October 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Fresh off his success in Iron Man, which helped to revitalize his career, Robert Downey Jr. teamed with Jude Law and director Guy Ritchie to make Sherlock Holmes. The movie kept the period setting and basic outlines of the detective and Dr. Watson, created by Arthur Conan Doyle, but added modern action twists and cheeky humor. Earning more than $524 million at the box office worldwide, the movie was followed by a sequel two years later. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows proved even more popular, grossing more than $545 million in earnings. Even before the sequel opened, writer Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) was hired to work on the third installment, but the project stalled out. Three years later, Downey said: "We want it to be the best of the series, so that's a pretty...

Sherlock Holmes 3 Moves Forward with 5 Person Writers' Room

28 October 2016 10:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Robert Downey Jr. may be busy getting ready to do battle with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, but he is still committed to returning as Sherlock Holmes for a third go around. Sherlock Holmes 3 just took a massive step forward, because Warner Bros. and Robert Downey Jr.'s production company have just hired a writers' room to work on the script. The studio is clearly taking this very seriously, because they have brought in some big name writers to work on this anticipated sequel.

According to a report from Variety, Warner Bros. and Team Downey decided that bringing on just a writer or two for Sherlcok Holmes 3 wasn't good enough, so they hired five. The new writer's room for the movie will include Guardians of the Galaxy writer Nicole Perlman, Baywatch writer Justin Malen, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story writer Gary Whitta, Tomb Raider writer Geneva Dworet-Robertson and Snowden writer Kieran Fitzgerald. »

Rupture starring Noomi Rapace unleashes new trailer

18 October 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I like Noomi Rapace, though I'm not sure that she's ever had a real breakout role in the Us. Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows was fun, but disposable, and Prometheus was just (in my opinion) the worst thing to happen to the Alien franchise - and yes, I'm including Alien Vs Predator: Requiem and the Alien: Colonial Marines game in that list. However, regardless of your opinion on those... Read More »

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Reunite for Holmes and Watson

16 August 2016 6:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are some great comedic duos in the modern age of cinema, but there are few that rival the love and success that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have managed to obtain. The pair have been wanting to team up again for quite some time, and they finally are. It isn't for a Step Brothers sequel though, as one might expect. Ferrell and Reilly will be taking on the classic duo of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson with the new movie Holmes & Watson.

The news comes courtesy of Deadline and reveals that the new movie is happening over at Sony Pictures. Holmes & Watson is said to be taking on the characters made famous by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but will be putting a PG-13 comedic spin on it. Ferrell will be re-teaming with another recent collaborator, as the report also notes that Etan Cohen will be directing the movie, »

Alice Through the Looking Glass movie review: a mirror cracked

24 May 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Believes six impossible things — like implausible character motivations, or big emotions — because they’re in the script, without bothering to earn them. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Alice Through the Looking Glass may bear even less resemblance to anything Lewis Carroll wrote than its predecessor, Tim Burton’s 2010 flick Alice in Wonderland, so perhaps it’s not surprising that it follows up on the adventure that Burton’s adaptation hinted was in store for Alice, something that Carroll would never have imagined for her. Glass opens with adult Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska: Crimson Peak, Madame Bovary), now captain of an English merchant ship in 1847, executing a daring escape from pirates on the high seas. It’s a thrilling sequence, not least because Alice’s all-male crew appears to have no »

Sherlock Holmes 3 Aims for Fall Shoot, More Sequels Possible

19 May 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, while promoting Captain America: Civil War, Robert Downey Jr. teased that production on the long-awaited Sherlock Holmes 3 could begin later this year. He also confirmed that director Guy Ritchie will return to the helm. Those details were never confirmed by the studio, but today we have word from producer Joel Silver, who backed up the actor's claims, revealing they are eyeing a fall shoot. The producer also confirmed that they have a script in place, and that both Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law will be available to reprise their roles as Holmes and Watson.

Back in 2011, the same year Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows was released, Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) came aboard to write the script, but it isn't known if it's this script that the producers are moving forward with, or if other writers have come aboard since then. Unfortunately, Joel Silver didn't »

Sherlock Holmes 3 to be the next of lots of possible sequels

Producer Joel Silver says Sherlock Holmes 3 may start filming in the autumn - and more sequels are planned...

Considering how long it’s taken to get a third Sherlock Holmes movie moving, you’d think that there’d be caution when it comes to talking about more of them.

But no! Producer Joel Silver has all-but-confirmed that the plan is to get Sherlock Holmes 3 in front of the cameras this October. That’s nearly five years since the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, and both Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law will be reprising their roles as Holmes and Watson. Guy Ritchie is expected back to direct.

“Downey says he wants to do it. He’s gotta launch into another Avengers movie, right after the new year, so we’re trying to get it done”, said Silver.

11 DC Comics movies awaiting a greenlight

From Justice League Dark and The Batman to Lobo and Man Of Steel 2 - the DC movies that await a greenlight...

Big spoilers lie ahead for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Whichever side of the imaginary rivalry you fall into, there's no denying that when it comes to movies, DC has got some catching up to do. In the same year as Marvel Studios released their first major crossover, The Avengers, Warner Bros released The Dark Knight Rises, the final chapter in Christopher Nolan's acclaimed Batman trilogy, which was firmly grounded in the notion that Bruce Wayne is the world's only superhero.

Nolan's disinterest in the larger DC toybox left Warners a few steps behind Disney and Marvel, especially after the failure of 2010's Jonah Hex and 2011's Green Lantern, the latter of which was intended as the first step into a wider universe. »

James Coyne is hired for rewrite work on Sherlock Holmes 3, with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law both set to return...

Further signs of progress, it seems, surrounding Sherlock Holmes 3. Notwithstanding the fact that it's been nearly five years since the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, Robert Downey Jr has recently expressed his keenness to return to the series, and even suggested last week that the film could be before the cameras this year.

The latest? A fresh writer has been brought aboard the project, to do some rewrite work.

The previous draft of the movie was penned by Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce. Now, James Coyne has been hired by Warner Bros to do some further work on the Sherlock Holmes 3 screenplay.

It's not just Downey Jr likely to return when this one gets going. »

I've got one heck of a soft spot for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes franchise, not only are they immensely entertaining, but the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law is, for lack of a better word, delightful.

Robert Downey Jr hints that Sherlock Holmes 3 might finally be happening...

It’s been five years since Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law came together for Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows. Since then, both actors have expressed that they’re keen to make a third Sherlock Holmes big screen adventure, and director Guy Ritchie is also on board with the idea. The problem has been scheduling, and just fitting the project in.

But there could now be progress.

Robert Downey Jr is currently doing the interview rounds for Captain America: Civil War, and he’s confirmed that a third Sherlock Holmes big screen adventure is edging closer. “We’re talking about it right now”, he told Shortlist. “I can’t wait. I know Guy Ritchie loves me as much as I love him – and he damn well should. When we’re making those Sherlock movies »

Robert Downey Jr. Says 'Sherlock Holmes 3' Still In The Works, Might Happen This Year

21 April 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's been a half decade since "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows," and while no one is exactly clamoring for a sequel, Robert Downey Jr. is still a mega-franchise star thanks to Marvel, so I'm sure someone at Warner Bros. wants a third movie to happen. But thus far it's been a lot of a talk and little action, with producer Lionel Wigram saying last year they were still figuring out the script, and trying to nail down a story that would work. But it seems some progress has been made since then. “We’re talking about it right now. We can do some preliminary stuff,” Rdj told Shortlist, teasing that the film could start rolling this year. “If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have the whole [movie] done in a week,” the actor quipped. “When we’re making those 'Sherlock' movies it is off the hook.

Confirmed: Robert Downey Jr Shooting 'Sherlock Holmes 3' Later This Year

21 April 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

To the mainstream public, actor Robert Downey Jr is Iron Man. That's where the actor had his triumphant comeback, and that's where he's spent a good portion of his career for the past eight or so years. Some may have forgotten, however, that he's also the lead in another franchise. While it may not be on the same level as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's fairly large in its own right.

That's right. We're talking Sherlock Holmes. Nowadays, we have a few different interpretations of the world-famous Arthur Conan Doyle character: one on the BBC, one on CBS, and one series of big screen adaptations starring Rdj himself.

Both films in the latter film series were directed by Guy Ritchie, and brought in well over $500 million apiece. Not a bad haul for a property that's over 125 years old. However, following the release of the second film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, »
