Vixen: Megalyn Echikunwoke cast as new CW superhero

2 July 2015 12:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Megalyn Echikunwoke will play Vixen, Aka Mari McCabe, The CW’s latest superhero, in her own online animated series this autumn…

As a concept, Vixen has been floating around for a while. The basic idea is that of an animated spin-off from The CW’s Arrow and The Flash universe, with a female hero – the eponymous Vixen – in centre stage.

Today, we’ve finally learnt who’ll be playing Vixen. Megalyn Echikunwoke has been cast in the voice role, which will include acting alongside Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin in the recording studio.

Recently, Megalyn Echikunwoke has appeared in both the Damien TV series and The Following. Previously, she played the on-the-nose-ly named ‘Pretty Reporter’ in A Good Day To Die Hard and recurred in CSI: Miami.

Vixen’s secret identity is Mari McCabe, who ‘inherits a magical totem that bestows upon her the ability to access the inherent attributes of animals, »

Terminator Genisys review: Arnold Schwarzenegger is back for demise of the machines

1 July 2015 3:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Alan Taylor; Screenwriters: Laeta Kalogridis, Patrick Lussier; Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith; Running time: 125 mins; Certificate: 12A

Terminator Genisys says and does nothing new, preferring instead to exhume the past and take one almighty metallic dump on it. Relentlessly dull and lacking any entertainment value beyond a solitary penis-themed one-liner from Arnold Schwarzenegger, it's hard to fathom how badly they've rewired rather than rebooted this ailing franchise.

The plot is an utter mess, throwing together Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), her son John Connor (Jason Clarke) and nondescript soldier Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) in various timelines that rewrite history and feature multiple incarnations of Schwarzenegger's iconic, leather-clad figure. By the end, you'll be wishing he could travel back in time and terminate the franchise after T2. That's if you're still capable of rational thought. It's a very tough two hours.

'Terminator' Stars: Where Are They Now?

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in "Terminator Genisys," but he's the only one from the original franchise. There's a new Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke of "Game of Thrones"), John Connor (Jason Clarke of "Zero Dark Thirty") and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney of "A Good Day to Die Hard.")

But where are the stars who've played these roles in previous films? Interestingly enough, there's a "Terminator" thread that connects them even in other projects (such as Emilia Clarke taking over the role from a "Game of Thrones" costar), almost as if it were ... fate. (Yes, of course there's no fate but what we make.)

Here's what the previous cast and crew have been up to since their "Terminator" days. »

Hitman: Agent 47: New Trailer and Poster Feature Killer Cue-Ball Rupert Friend

23 June 2015 6:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox just released the first full trailer an a new poster for Hitman: Agent 47, the second attempt at a proper adaptation of the popular video game property. Whereas the teaser simply gave us a look at a few set-pieces, to say nothing of our first glance at Rupert Friend as the titular genetically-engineered killer, the full trailer gives us a sense of how the story will unfold. The basic set-up seems to have its roots in something like the Bourne series, with Friend's destructive cue-ball seemingly striking vengeance against corporate and governmental forces who want his talents to create an all-powerful army. In his charge would be Hannah Ware's Katia, a fellow agent who has yet to unlock her training as of yet and who is nearly taken in by Zachary Quinto's nefarious John Smith. The trailer boasts a series of eye-grabbing action sequences, from Friend's anti-hero »

The Five Worst Film Franchises

21 June 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the five worst film franchises…

Film franchises are easy targets for writers looking to grind an axe and bemoan the current state of big budget cinema. Like a pinata filled with gold bullion and airplane sized bottles of bourbon, everyone is just a little too eager to take a swing. It’s an easy topic to opine on because of the sheer volume of franchises being produced. They’re growing like weeds planted by studios who hope to create the next cash crop. There are so many terrible franchises in the history of Hollywood. I could spend an entire series of columns detailing cinematic tragedies like Twilight. I mean seriously…. did you sit through any of those Twilight movies? They could have been classified as cruel and unusual punishment under the Geneva Convention.

In an effort to maintain a constructive conversation on the topic, I’m going »

Holy Hot Man Body! You Must Look at This Photo of Divergent Star Jai Courtney Right Now!

4 June 2015 10:24 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We know Jai Courtney is hot. We've seen him in Divergent, Unbroken, A Good Day to Die Hard and Jack Reacher. Coming up is the Terminator reboot and the superhero villain flick, Suicide Squad. But he's giving us a really nice closeup look of his super hot body in the new issue of Interview magazine. In one shot, the 29-year-old Aussie is shirtless and leaning against a wall with his right arm bulging with muscles resting just below his hairy pumped chest. Courtney is rocking a beard and looking into the camera in a way that is sure to elicit all kinds of naughty thoughts. Another shirtless shot is taken from behind. Courtney's back is a brick house and both arms show the »

How the year 2012 helped redefine blockbuster movies

20 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...

The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.

Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.

The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »

Anna Friel Programmed For I.T.

17 May 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's been developing for a while, with Pierce Brosnan attached to star for some months. But I.T. is finally gathering some momentum and filling in the rest of its cast, and the latest to come aboard is Anna Friel. She'll play Brosnan's wife in the techno-revenge thriller from Max Payne / A Good Day To Die Hard director John Moore.The film, which originated with producer David T. Friendly and at one point had Dan Kay on script duty and Stefano Sollima set to direct, sees Brosnan as a self-made businessman in the private plane-leasing trade, who somehow manages to annoy a young, disgruntled I.T. consultant. Naturally, because his nemesis is tech savvy, he decides to threaten Brosnan’s life, family and income. By the sound of it, he's the computer nerd From Hell...James Frecheville (The Drop) is the antagonist, and Stefanie Scott, as previously reported, is playing Brosnan's daughter, »

Alex of Venice Features Another Stirring, Sterling Performance From Mary Elizabeth Winstead

15 April 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Editor’s note: Our review of Alex of Venice originally ran during 2014’s Tribeca Film Fest, but we’re re-posting it now as the film opens this Friday in limited release. Mary Elizabeth Winstead has the “one to watch” thing down pat. The former teen actress has now blossomed into one of independent film’s most reliable and relatable leading ladies and her steady rise up the cinematic ranks – from the drunken darkness of Smashed to the dark humor of Faults, with a little The Thing and A Good Day to Die Hard thrown in for a touch of blockbuster fun– has long been someone worth watching, and now. For his directorial debut, actor Chris Messina has quite wisely built a story around Winstead’s charms, setting her up as the eponymous Alex for his Alex of Venice, an amiable outing that serves as yet another reminder that Winstead is more than enough of a draw on »

In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Terminator Genisys graces Empire cover, new images arrive online

21 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the marketing campaign begins to gather pace, the cover of the May issue of Empire (via Reddit) has given us another look at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 in this summer’s Terminator Genisys

Schwarzenegger, with most of his skin “lost” to show his machine endo-skeleton below, is joined on the new issue’s cover by the Emilia Clarke’s (Game of Thrones) Sarah Connor, who looks more like Connor in T2 than the shy girl of the first film. In addition, some new photos from the film have been unveiled, which includes the first image of Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), who joins the cast as Detective O’Brien, a cop who has apparently been investigating Sarah Connor since she was young…

Hard to believe: John Williams is not scoring Steven Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies'

18 March 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the first time in almost 30 years a Steven Spielberg film will not be scored by John Williams.  That was the sad news DreamWorks Studios tried to avoid making headlines with this morning with the announcement that Thomas Newman would compose the music for Spielberg's upcoming thriller "Bridge of Spies." According to a release from the studio through distributor Walt Disney Pictures, Williams work schedule "was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected."   The 83-year-old composer has enjoyed a remarkable career winning five Academy Awards including three Oscars for Spielberg films "E.T.," "Schindler's List" and "Jaws."  The duo most recently collaborated on 2013's "Lincoln" for which Williams also earned an Original Score nomination. Williams' last theatrical work was 2013's "The Book Thief" which was his 49th nomination. He has also won a remarkable 22 Grammy Awards. Williams is still expected to »

Jai Courtney Says ‘Suicide Squad’ Will Be ‘Huge’

17 March 2015 7:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jai Courtney has been pumping iron and hitting the gym to get ready for the start of filming on “Suicide Squad” this April.

The Australian actor, best known for his roles in “Divergent” and “A Good Day to Die Hard,” plays Captain Boomerang in the adaptation of the DC Comics series about a gang of super-villians on an impossible mission.

“I’ve been training for three months in different martial arts,” Courtney said at Monday’s premiere of “The Divergent Series: Insurgent.” “As you can imagine for that superhero world, the athletic expectations are rather high.”

Suicide Squad” co-stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn — a murderer’s row of bad guys. Details of the film are being tightly guarded, and Courtney wasn’t feeling particularly loose-lipped.

“I can’t reveal anything about the plot,” he said. “I’m working with a great cast. »

Jai Courtney reveals Suicide Squad’s “dark” and “dope” tone

10 March 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Talking to MTV, Jai Courtney (InsurgentDie Hard 5) has called his upcoming DC movie Suicide Squad “dark”, “cool” and “dope”. He plays Australian super(-ish) villain Captain Boomerang and has promised the film “won’t be a comic book movie we’ve seen before.”

He also told an anecdote about the weeks before he was cast:

David Ayer was really the major point of attraction for me, with this. It’s funny, Shia Labeouf and I were on a road trip to New Orleans to work on a film we did together called Man Down. And we were talking about David because [Shia] had just done Fury. We were talking about that experience and I was fascinated by what he put the guys through in order to get ready for that. It sounded amazing.”
