The Shallows Releases a Final Trailer

8 June 2016 7:42 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

In a marketing plan that has me both really wanting to learn to surf, and stay as far away from water as I possibly can, The Shallows has released what they are calling their final trailer!

In a world where good thrillers involving Sharks can be counted on one hand, well, with one finger, Sony and Blake Lively are looking to add a new one to the long list of Jaws and nothing else. If the trailers are any indication of how exciting The Shallows will be, then we are in for a fun thrill ride.

Early Wednesday morning Sony released what they are calling their final trailer for the upcoming isolated survival drama The Shallows. The film follows a young surfer who is standard on a giant rock. In view of the shore she must find a way to outsmart a great white that stalks her, waiting for his own chance to attack. »

First Official Trailer For Oliver Stone’s Snowden

27 April 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The story of Edward Snowden, the polarising figure who exposed the Nsa’s illegal surveillance activities and became the most wanted man in the world, seems the perfect fit for Oliver Stone. Well, the Oliver Stone who brought us Platoon and JFK, not the one who directed Savages. The first trailer does suggest the return of the angry, authority baiting Stone of old, portraying Joseph Gordon Levitt’s Snowden as a patriotic American caught up in something much, much bigger than he is. The cast, including Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Zachary Quinto, and Timothy Olyphant seem to be on top form, even if Jgl’s accent seems a bit off. Check it out below. Released: September 16th  »

James Cameron says there will be four Avatar sequels

14 April 2016 2:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Cameron made a surprise appearance at CinemaCon today during the 20th Century Fox presentation, with the filmmaker announcing that we’ll be getting Four sequels to his 2009 box office behemoth Avatar. The filmmaker revealed that the plan is for each sequel to work as an individual story, but forming “a complete saga” together.

Prior to the release of the first movie, Cameron had suggested that he had plans for a further two sequels, before upping that to three in 2012. Avatar 2 was initially announced for release in December 2014 but has been pushed back several times, most recently to avoid Star Wars: Episode VIII. The current plan is for Avatar 2 to arrive in 2018, followed by Avatar 3 in 2020, Avatar 4 is 2022 and Avatar 5 in 2023.

Mann Still Planning Gangster Feature

19 March 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The other day came word that filmmaker Michael Mann had started a new venture, Michael Mann Books, which would manage literary works which would then be sold on to publishers, and could also be adapted into potential films and TV series which Mann would likely produce and maybe even direct.

The first is a prequel novel to "Heat" which Mann himself is already working on, but there's no word at all (despite some breathless news pieces earlier this week) that an adaptation of it is in development. Today, Deadline has news of the second book from the label, one which has much more of a chance of hitting the screen.

"The Power of the Dog" author Don Winslow is penning the novel which is about Chicago crime boss Tony Accardo and his successor Sam Giancana - a crime story Mann has been keen to do for years. Accardo was part of the infamous St. »

Michael Mann and Don Winslow team up for New Book and Film

18 March 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Michael Mann must be an extremely busy guy these days. Not only did he just announce his new company, Michael Mann Books, but has also disclosed what the first book will be. Pairing up with writer Don Winslow, their first novel/film venture will be based on the relationship between the two real life crime-bosses, Tony Accardo and Sam Giancana. Accardo was head of the “Chicago Outfit” in the 1940’s, with Giancana becoming his replacement as Accardo moved on to run the entire underworld organization (allegedly).

Michael Mann - Don Winslow

Don Winslow, while not an relatively well-known name, has been busy writing crime novels and screenplays for years. Oliver Stone’s 2012’s Savages being a recent highlight in a long career of well known films he participated in. Michael Mann had a string of hits in the 90s and early 2000s and is considered to be a very talented director. »

Michael Mann Once Again Eyes Directing Movie About Crime Kingpins Tony Accardo & Sam Giancana

18 March 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You can either wait for projects to come your way or start creating those opportunities for yourself. And Michael Mann is doing the latter in a big way. Earlier this week, it was reported that the director was launching a publishing imprint, Michael Mann Books, to develop novels that will also be the basis for television and movie projects. A prequel to "Heat" has already been announced as part of the slate, but coming first is another crime tale.

Demian Bichir joins Alien: Covenant cast

23 February 2016 1:40 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alien: Covenant, the Ridley Scott-directed sequel to 2012’s Prometheus, has just added Oscar-nominated actor Demian Bichir to its cast, according to Deadline. Bichir is set to join a group of actors that includes Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, who is reprising his role as David, and the recently announced Danny McBride

As of now, no details about Bichir’s character have been released.

In their article, Deadline also lists Noomi Rapace, star of Prometheus, as part of the sequel’s cast, despite Scott himself claiming last month that she will not appear in the film. Reports on this matter have conflicted in the past, but as the film’s release date inches closer, Fox will surely put out an official statement on whether or not the actress is involved, to clear things up.

The film will supposedly begin filming in Australia in the near future.

Just as intriguing as the Xenomorphs in some of the previous Alien films are the people that encounter them.

A follow-up film to the Alien prequel, Prometheus, Alien: Covenant will feature Michael Fassbender reprising his role as the android David and will also star Katherine Waterston (Steve Jobs). Danny McBride (Pineapple Express, Eastbound & Down) is also in talks for a co-starring role.

Star Wars: Episode VIII - what we know, what might happen

12 January 2016 8:24 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Episode VIII is due out in time for the Star Wars 40th anniversary. Here's what we know so far, plus a bit of speculation about its events.

Nb: The following contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and speculation about Episode VIII. 

"In the middle act of a movie or a book or anything else,  not much happens. It sort of evolves the story, makes the plot more complicated." - George Lucas on The Empire Strikes Back

Disney may have had a lot riding on Star Wars: The Force Awakens - essentially, the future of an entire franchise - but next year's Episode VIII brings potentially nail-biting risks of its own. It will, after all, have to follow on from the success of The Force Awakens - currently the third biggest film of all time in terms of ticket sales - and will also draw »
