Spielberg's 'Robopocalypse': Dead or Alive?

3 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

When your name is Steven Spielberg, you can afford to be choosey with your projects. Even better, you can afford to be patient. When a Spielberg film drops off the map for a while, it doesn't necessarily mean it's dead- like it might with other directors. It just means that he's taking a step back to get it right, as opposed to just racing forward with something that's half-baked. Such is the case with Robopocalypse, the sci-fi flick that Spielberg has long been linked to bringing to the big screen.

We almost got this thing years ago. He had slated production to begin once he was finished with War Horse. Well, as you might have noticed, War Horse came out in 2011 and we still don't have any Spielbergian robots storming our screens. The director, seemingly dissatisfied with the state of the script, and the studio- alarmed by what it would »

BBC Worldwide North America Acquires Director John Boorman’s Final Film Queen And Country

21 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

BBC Worldwide North America announced today the acquisition of Queen And Country, the latest film by five-time Academy Award nominated director and writer John Boorman (Hope and Glory, Excalibur, The General, Deliverance), securing all rights in North America.

The film, which Boorman has announced will be his last, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2014 and was acquired after making its North American debut during Film Comment’s special screening at the 52nd New York Film Festival earlier this month.

Queen And Country introduces Callum Turner (Ripper Street, Borgias) to the big screen and also stars one of Variety’s  “Top 10 Actors to Watch” Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class), David Thewlis (War Horse, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and Vanessa Kirby (About Time).  Featuring cinematography from Seamus Deasy (Neverland, When the Sky Falls) and set design by Academy Award nominee Anthony Pratt (The Phantom of the Opera, »

Ya Adaptation Private Peaceful Tells a Tale of Two Brothers in World War I

28 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Two British privates named Peaceful fight side by side in the trenches of World War I, and both face the wrath of their superior officers in a court-martial. Director Pat O'Connor constructs Private Peaceful as a mystery, using flashbacks to reveal the intertwined lives of brothers Charlie (Jack O'Connell) and Tommo (George MacKay) as one of them awaits the firing squad. Both the young-adult novel by Michael Morpurgo (War Horse) and screenwriter Simon Reade's 2004 stage adaptation employ the first-person narrative of teenage Tommo, and the director's decision to open up the story to other perspectives makes this Private Peaceful feel more shaded and mature, with echoes of O'Connor's wistful A Month in the Country and haunting Cal (whose John L »

7 More Mega Movie Franchises Benedict Cumberbatch Should (Be Rumored to) Join

28 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Now that Benedict Cumberbatch is likely to lead Doctor Strange and thereby join the Avengers and Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s on a roll as far as conquering all of Hollywood’s biggest franchises. Really, he’s only been in a few so far: The Hobbit, Star Trek and soon enough Madagascar. That’s it unless we hold on to the hope that War Horse can still spawn its own mega-series of various animal stories set during World War I. Cumberbatch had been rumored for Star Wars, and eventually he’s sure to be in at least one of the 20 or 50 they’re currently planning to produce. Like many fans, I’m also still waiting for a necessary Sherlock/Doctor Who crossover, but those aren’t movie franchises — yet. Not since Hugo Weaving has there been such promise of a multi-franchise movie star such as this. And Cumberbatch is more of a leading man than Weaving and »

Ike Barinholtz, 37

Actor-writer-producer

He plays daffy on “The Mindy Project,” but Barinholtz is a master of multitasking. He writes and produces on “Project,” recurs on HBO’s “Eastbound & Down” and FX’s “The League” and lends his voice on Hulu’s “The Awesomes.” But his recent resume doesn’t end there; the rangy Chicagoan has roles lined up in “The Nest” and “Angry Birds,” and got a thrill out of appearing in “Neighbors” this year because he got to be “in a movie with Zac Efron after being mistaken for him for so many years.” On the set, Barinholtz says he witnesses great leadership every day.

The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death - Scary New Us Trailer

24 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hammer has released an official U.S. trailer for their new horror film The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death. This latest trailer is a lot different than the U.K. one we posted a couple of days ago. It's got a good amount of new footage, and I personally think that it's a better and scarier trailer. 

This is a sequel to the Daniel Radcliffe movie, The Woman in Black, but he's not joining us for the sequel. This next chapter in the story features a new group of characters, and the cast includes Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall), and Phoebe Fox (Switch). The creepy ghost story is set in 1941 in the same haunted house as the first film. In the story "two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the bombs in the remote coastal location. »

Kate Middleton Successfully Hides her Baby Bump

24 October 2014 12:42 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Pregnant Kate Middleton, aka Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, made another public appearance since being treated for hyperemesis gravidarum, her third in a week. The 32-year-old duchess, who is about three months along and barely showing, and husband Prince William, also 32, are expecting their second child. Their son Prince George, the fourth in line to the U.K. throne, is 15 months old.

Kate was all smiles at the Action on Addiction Autumn Gala in London on Thursday. In 2012, Kate became a patron of the charity, which helps addicts and their families.

The fashionista duchess wore a black, long sleeve, scoop neck, knee-length Temperley London Pre-Fall 2014 Emblem Flare dress, which features slashed panels over a nude slip, crochet detailing and a flared skirt. Her bold outfit retails for about $953 and was "inspired by stained glass ironwork," according to the designer's website. She paired the look with a black beaded clutch and black suede platform pumps. »

Steven Spielberg's Robopocalypse movie "in the queue"

23 October 2014 11:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daniel H Wilson has revealed that Steven Spielberg's take on Robopocalypse remains an active project...

Steven Spielberg is currently turning his hand to a pair of new movies. Firstly, there's the Cold War thriller that he's making with Tom Hanks, based on a screenplay by the Coen Brothers (we talked about that one, here). He's in the midst of putting that together right now. Then, he moves on to a family movie for the first time in what feels like an age, as he tackles Roald Dahl's The Bfg.

One film that, if all had gone to plan, he'd have released by now is an adaptation of Daniel H Wilson's Robopocalypse. The book is structurally not dissimilar to Max Brooks' World War Z, and Spielberg was progressing on the project, before it went into turnaround. The given reason was that it was going to be too expensive to make, »

Creepy New Trailer for The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death

22 October 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We have a new full trailer for Hammer's upcoming haunted house horror film, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death for you to check out. The movie features a whole new cast that includes Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall), and Phoebe Fox (Switch). It also tells a new story that is set in the same creepy haunted house from the first film that starred Daniel Radcliffe. The trailer has a nice and scary tone, and this sequel looks like it's going to be a great horror flick. Like the first film, this one seems like a supernatural thriller that is going to mess with your head. I love watching horror films like this that have the old-school feel, where they don't rely heavily on special effects and blood to scare audiences. Here's a description of the story:

Watch Out Behind You, It's a New 'Woman in Black 2' Trailer

22 October 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We've had a couple teaser trailers for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, but today comes the first full trailer for the upcoming UK release while I have to assume the first domestic trailer will arrive sometimes this week as well if not later today as it will probably show in front of Ouija this weekend. Set for release on January 2, 2015, The Woman in Black 2 is the sequel to the 2012 release which starred Daniel Radcliffe, who isn't returning for this one. Instead it will be Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall) and Phoebe Fox (Switch) leading the charge in the 1941-set story, beginning as London is in the midst of the blitz, and two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the bombs in the remote coastal location, the group instead find themselves facing an evil far more frightening »

Cumberbatch vs. Hiddleston: Who's The Hotter Brit? (Duelling Videos)

20 October 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Tom Hiddleston and  Benedict Cumberbatch. Say it loud and there’s music playing. Say it soft and it’s almost like praying. Just mentioning these two actors’ names can cause a smile to light up the face of many a film enthusiast -- especially the female kind. Not since the‘60s, when such British acting imports as Peter O’Toole, Alan Bates, Oliver Reed and Albert Finney invaded Hollywood movies, has there been such an excitement over a pair of incredibly talented English chaps.  Steven Spielberg helped to initiate the frenzy by casting both Hiddleston, 33, and Cumberbatch, 38, as World War I cavalry officers in 2011’s "War Horse" (their press interview together below). Ever since, these two good-looking, bright, self-effacing, plummy-voiced and highly talented London natives have racked up a slew of memorable performances, caused social media to be flooded with GIFs and clips of their antics (including their dancing ability »

War Films at the Oscars

13 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Set during the final months of World War II, Fury follows a tank commander (played by Brad Pitt) and his crew as they head into Nazi Germany as part of the Allies’ final push. The film also stars Logan Lerman, Shia Labeouf, John Bernthal and Michael Pena. The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy said the film is “a modern version of the sort of movie Hollywood turned out practically every week back in the 1940s and 1950s.” Fury opens Oct. 17.

Could Fury score a best picture nomination at the 87th Academy Awards? Both war biopics and fictional war films — about real wars or battles — have historically done well at the Oscars; however, the current projections show that the race will be a tight one. Here’s a look at some of the fictional war films that scored nominations for best picture:

‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’ Theater Review: Now on Broadway, Soon to Be a Movie

5 October 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Simon Stephens’ stage adaptation of Mark Haddon's 2003 best-seller “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” wowed them in London two years ago. Brad Pitt optioned it for the movies, and on Thursday the play finally opened on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Let's begin with what “Curious Incident” is not theater-wise. It is not a big, empty shell of a play like the 2010 British flop-transfer “Enron” or the 2011 British hit-transfer “War Horse,” which was directed by Marianne Elliott, who distracted us from the flimsiness of Nick Stafford's play by offering up lots of humongous equine. »
