The Essential Films & TV to Stream This Week – August 26th 2014

26 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Not a lot to say in the pre-amble to this week’s selection of titles. Should probably apologise for the negativity in advance because a lot of the below is dreck this week across any content provider apart from the occasional bright spot and a new Netflix exclusive. Hopefully you will be able to at least find something worth a look that floats your boat.

This week’s titles of note are as follows:

Gravity (2013)

There really isn’t anymore praise that I can heap on Alfonso Cuaron’s outer space thrill ride that hasn’t been heaped upon it already. Upon repeat viewing what impresses more and more is the technical marvel that this film represents with Gravity being a massive leap forward in the use of virtual sets as well as animation that looks like real people.

There are apparently whole entire scenes here featuring Sandra Bullock and »

Thor Star Tom Hiddleston Eyed for Title Role in Ben-Hur Remake

12 August 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

MGM and Paramount Pictures are forging ahead with a Ben-Hur remake which will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), and a release of February 26th, 2016 has been set.

According to a new report, the studio are hoping to cast Tom Hiddleston (Avengers Assemble) as Judah Ben-Hur in the latest adaptation of 1880 Lew Wallace novel Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ which was previously adapted in both 1925 as a silent film and later as the far more famous 1959 version with Charlton Heston.

However, Hiddleston has his hands full with a number of other projects, and it’s not clear whether the British actor has even entered talks as of yet. Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill has also been considered.

This version of Ben-Hur will apparently be much closer to the book, and the site that broke this news have provided a synopsis of sorts giving us an »

Casting Net: Mike Epps may play Richard Pryor in Lee Daniels' biopic

12 August 2014 5:29 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

• It looks like Mike Epps may finally get the chance to play legendary stand-up comedian Richard Pryor after all. The comic has emerged as the front-runner to play the part in a biopic for The Weinstein Company directed by Lee Daniels (The Butler). Epps was previously signed on to play Pryor back in 2005 and met with the late comedian while he was still alive to prepare for the role, but that project fell through. Epps reportedly beat out actors Michael B. Jordan, Nick Cannon, and Marlon Wayans after Wayans had also been previously attached to another Pryor film, this one »

Tom Hiddleston Eyed to Lead Ben-hur Remake

12 August 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

MGM and Paramount are starting to put together their cast for the Ben-Hur remake, and they have their sights set high for the lead role.  Deadline reports that Tom Hiddleston is being courted to play Judah Ben-Hur in the Biblical epic, which has Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter director Timur Bekmambetov set to helm.  The pic is based on the original novel by Lew Wallace, which was subsequently turned into a classic 1959 film starring Charlton Heston.  Bemkambetov’s version is described as focusing on the nature of faith, as it follows a falsely accused nobleman who sets out to take vengeance on the best friend who betrayed him.  Hit the jump for more on the prospect of Hiddleston’s casting. The folks at Deadline report that Hiddleston is apparently the top choice to fill Heston’s shoes in the Ben-Hur remake, but they caution that it’s not nearly a done deal. »

Forget the summer, did 'Guardians of the Galaxy' just save the rest of 2014?

4 August 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's taken a few months, but moviegoers finally found another summer movie they adore. "Boyhood" has a very passionate fan base, but that awards-worthy player still isn't in enough theaters to come close to qualifying for nationwide release. No, America and some parts of the world have gone nuts for James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and with not a moment to spare. Frankly, this summer movie season has mostly been a box office dud from a studio perspective. That's somewhat perplexing considering the quality of films in May and June were surprisingly strong. "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Neighbors," "22 Jump Street," "Maleficent," "The Fault in Our Stars," "Edge of Tomorrow" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" guaranteed there was at least one good movie opening almost every weekend over the first six weeks of the summer. The box office results were mixed, however. "Days" was the biggest »

Kristen Bell, Amber Riley, and all-star hippies rock out in 'Hair' at the Hollywood Bowl

2 August 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The ’60s were a crazy yet influential time in our country’s history. People were fighting for their civil rights at home while debating America’s involvement in a growing conflict abroad, striving to find a place in this world that they could call their own. Half a century later, not much has changed. So reviving the 1967 American tribal love-rock musical Hair at the Hollywood Bowl for a three-night-only run this weekend has a special resonance beyond the potential to see famous people get naked on stage. And though stars like Kristen Bell, Amber Riley, and Sarah Hyland did not take it all off, »

Hercules movie review: he fights the lion!

23 July 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Grading on the Ratner Curve, this is a positive triumph. The cheesy clichés are at least passingly entertaining. You could do worse. I’m “biast” (pro): love Dwayne Johnson

I’m “biast” (con): hate Brett Ratner

I have not read the source material

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

You think you know the truth about him? You know nothing!” This from the very shouty narrator who opens Hercules for us, presumably in case you saw the hilariously awful The Legend of Hercules earlier this year and were suckered into believing that Kellan Lutz is a demigod. What’s sort of funny and sort of the best thing about this second attempt in a few months to pass off a superhero of the ancient world as one for the 21st century is that the shouty narrator turns out to be Herc’s publicist, and that »

‘Dracula Untold’: Dominic Cooper Promises A Dark Vampire Origin Story

In addition to a fan-favorite turn (with possible returns in the future) as Marvel’s Howard Stark, father to Iron Man, Tony Stark, Dominic Cooper has been seen in several high-profile franchise films in the last few years – with more already scheduled. Most recently, the actor served as antagonist to the racing game movie, Need for Speed – only to sign on for a role in the highly anticipated World of Warcraft adaptation (set to hit theaters in 2016). Last year, the actor played supporting Vampire hunter Henry Sturges in the genre-bending novel adaptation Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – one of the bright spots in a film that fell short of finding the same success as its ...
