It’s Hollywood, 1958. An aspiring young actress, songwriter, beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin, Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins: Mirror Mirror, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Love Rosie), and her young, ambitious, deeply religious Methodist chauffeur, Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich: Hail, Ceasar!, Blue Jasmin), both struggle with the absurd eccentricities of the wildly unpredictable billionaire they work for, Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty: Dick Tracy, Bonnie & Clyde, Reds, Shampoo).

Geostorm Trailer #2 Takes Climate Change to the Extreme

Geostorm Trailer #2 Takes Climate Change to the Extreme
Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for Geostorm, showcasing the devastating effects of a very extreme version of "climate change." While this fictional tale surely won't sway the naysayers who think climate change is a hoax, with these massive action set pieces that show various forms of weather systems getting extremely out of control, it certainly could provide some big-budget escapism from the current political climate. This trailer hints that Geostorm may in fact be the most action-packed movie to hit theaters all year, and it could also be a dark horse box office blockbuster, starring Gerard Butler.

The story is set in the aftermath of an unprecedented series of natural disasters that threatened the planet in ways never been seen before, which lead the world's leaders to come together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe.

Cannes: Harald Zwart on Fulfilling a Childhood Dream With 'The 12th Man'

Cannes: Harald Zwart on Fulfilling a Childhood Dream With 'The 12th Man'
With films like The Karate Kid and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Norwegian director Harald Zwart has established himself in Hollywood as a go-to-guy for mainstream genre titles.

But the 51-year-old filmmaker regularly returns to his native Scandinavia for a local-language project, including, in 2006 and 2008, the first two installments in soccer comedy franchise Long Flat Balls.

Zwart is back in Europe for his latest, The 12th Man, but the drama, marks a major departure for the director. His first period picture, the movie is also Zwart's first true-life drama: the story of Norwegian resistance hero Jan Baalsrud...

Hugo Weaving Climbs Aboard Peter Jackson’s Fantasy Epic Mortal Engines

From Middle-earth to Mortal Engines, former Lord of the Rings star Hugo Weaving has inked a deal to climb aboard Peter Jackson’s long-in-development adaptation.

Per Variety, this marks the pair’s first collaboration since orchestrating The Battle of the Five Armies three years ago, when Weaving played the iconic role of Elrond. And though his role in Mortal Engines is yet to be confirmed – sources close to Variety claim he’ll play Valentine, head of the Historians – securing Hugo Weaving’s services is certainly a massive coup for Universal’s wildly ambitious adaptation. Lifted from the pages of Philip Reeves’s four-part steampunk series, we know that the studio has already appointed Christian Rivers at the helm, who will direct a script from Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens.

Set thousand of years in the future, Mortal Engines follows the remnants of humanity as they roam the ravaged landscape aboard huge,

Falling DVD & Blu-ray sales, and an era passing

Simon Brew Mar 23, 2017

As DVD and Blu-ray sales fall, it's no longer certain that films will get a disc release. So what's happening?

Let’s start with a statistic.

In 2013, Hotel Transylvania shifted 1,029,614 copies on Blu-ray disc in the Us alone. A hefty number, yet the animated hit – which has thus far spawned one sequel, with another on the way – was only the 23rd best-selling Blu-ray release of the year in America that year, just trailing titles such as Turbo, Rise Of The Guardians, Django Unchained and Life Of Pi.

2013 was arguably the peak year for Blu-ray sales, with 23 individual titles selling a million copies or more in the Us. The best-selling of all, Despicable Me 2, shifted 4.6m copies alone, and many more overseas. On the DVD format, meanwhile, 45 different films sold a million units in America in 2013, including another 2.7m copies of Hotel Transylvania.

In recent years, however,

Newswire: Peter Jackson’s Mortal Engines casts its lead actor

  • The AV Club
Peter Jackson’s latest literary adaptation keeps moving at a steady pace, as Variety reports that his Mortal Engines movie has just cast one of its lead actors. Robbie Sheehan’s (Fortitude) role isn’t currently known, but he will lead the cast. The dystopian steampunk world of The Mortal Engines source book—which is driven by “Municipal Darwinism,” in which larger cities consume smaller ones for their resources—should allow him to strap on interesting gadgets or at least some goggles. But Sheehan is probably already hoping this Ya adaptation will fare better than The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, which he starred in back in 2013.

Also joining the cast is Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’s Ronan Raftery, who has a supporting, also undisclosed, role. Jackson’s reassembled his usual team for the movie; he’ll produce and co-write with Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens ...

Helmer Zwart Treks to Norway’s Arctic Circle for ’12th Man’ Shoot

Helmer Zwart Treks to Norway’s Arctic Circle for ’12th Man’ Shoot
Director Harald Zwart, who last made a feature in the country eight years ago, has returned to Norway with “The 12th Man,”which has begun its local shoot for producer Aage Aaberge and Nordisk Film Production.

Co-produced by Norway’s Motion Blur (co-owned by Zwart), the $6.8 million tells the story of Norwegian war hero Jan Baalsrud, who was one of 12 Norwegian resistance fighters crossing the North Sea on a fishing boat, to blow up the Bardufoss Airport in March 1943, during the Nazi occupation. Their boat is discovered, and the saboteurs blow it up, trying to escape in a smaller boat. But 11 of them are captured, and killed by the enemy; only 25-year-old Baalsrud manages to escape, and after hiding in a snow cave on the fjell for two months, he is able to cross the border to neutral Sweden.

Zwart started shooting north of the Arctic Circle in April, starting with the ending.

Dwayne Johnson To Produce Son Of Shaolin For Sony

So, by my count, the indefatigable Dwayne Johnson is essentially booked straight through to the year 2025, or thereabouts – and he’s still adding projects to his mighty slate. With starring roles announced on what seems to be a weekly basis, the actor is also working to expand his presence behind the camera – and the newly planned Son Of Shaolin will fall into that category, with Dwayne Johnson on board as producer.

The film will be based upon the yet-to-be-published graphic novel of the same name, written by Jay Longino. Since this source material has not yet hit the stands, plot details are scarce. But, as per Deadline, it will tell “a contemporary Kung-Fu story that intertwines Shaolin mythology with many of the current issues faced by teens growing up in gentrifying neighbourhoods.” Author Longino will also write the script, but the director’s chair apparently remains vacant at this time.

Warren Beatty Opens Up About Finally Playing Howard Hughes in Upcoming Movie: 'I Had It in My Mind for a Long Time'

  • PEOPLE.com
Warren Beatty was last in front of a camera 15 years ago; 18 years have passed since he last directed a movie; and it's been even longer since Beatty, 79, first flirted with the idea of making a movie that involved legendarily elusive and eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes. Now, in an exclusive interview with Beatty, People and Entertainment Weekly has learned that all three of those streaks will finally come to an end on Nov. 11, when Fox releases Rules Don't Apply - an unconventional love story set in 1958 Hollywood which the Oscar-winner wrote, directed and produced. He will also appear in the film as Hughes himself.
