With Fast & Furious 7 on hold after the tragic death of leading man Paul Walker, 20th Century Fox has moved to shift up the release date of its upcoming sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes a week, with the film now occupying Fast 7's planned release date of July 11th, 2014.
The follow-up to 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes sees Matt Reeves (Let Me In) directing a cast that includes the returning Andy Serkis as Caesar alongside Jason Clarke (The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises), Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In), Enrique Murciano (Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line) and Judy Greer (13 Going on 30). Here's the official synopsis...
"A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was originally scheduled to open in theaters on July 18th, but it’s been announced that we’ll be seeing it one week early. Fast & Furious 7 was previously the only movie set to open on July 11th, but Fox has moved Dawn of the Planet of the Apes into that weekend as well. This is likely due to the fact that it’s expected Universal will delay Fast & Furious 7.
“A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”

Warcraft may have had its release date pushed back to 2016 to avoid going up against Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII, but the video game adaptation looks to be picking up the pace in terms of casting, with Universal revealing that Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Rob Kazinsky (True Blood) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) have signed on for as-yet-unrevealed roles, while Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is in final negotiations.
The four actors join the previously announced Travis Fimmel (Vikings) and Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) in the cast of Warcraft, which is being directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code). Other actors who have been linked to parts in the fantasy epic include Colin Farrell (Total Recall), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), Paul Dano (Prisoners) and Anson Mount (Straw Dogs).
Warcraft is set for release on March 11th 2016. »

Big casting announcement for the Warcraft movie tonight. Variety is reporting that four more names are set for Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie in the works at Legendary. The big four are: Ben Foster (of 3:10 to Yuma, Pandorum, Rampart, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Lone Survivor), Toby Kebbell (of RocknRolla, Prince of Persia, Sorcerer's Apprentice, Wrath of the Titans, The East), Rob Kazinsky (of "True Blood", Red Tails + Chuck Hansen in Pacific Rim) in three lead roles, with Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia, Devil's Double, Captain America, Need for Speed) in negotiations for a part as well. All four of these guys are very talented actors on the rise and should make for a gritty, badass cast of humans. So who will they be playing? No one knows! Plot details for this Warcraft movie are still being kept a big secret, and we don't have have any casting or character breakdowns to go along with them. »

In July Paul Gerrard (Wrath Of The Titans, Battle La) and Mike Le Han (Mrs Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room) produced a teaser trailer to accompany the pitch document which has conceptual designs that revision Hellraiser from Cerebri Studios. Paul designed the new look for Pinhead and was production designer on the shoot and Le Han pulled in all of his film resources and directed the teaser on the new Alex 4:3 camera with anamorphic lenses.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes had no right to be as brilliant as it was. An intelligent, moving and incredibly enjoyable science fiction film, it worked as both a remake of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes and a reboot of the series.
Today, a series of deleted scenes in animatic form have arrived online via ComicBookMovie, showing the apes wreaking havoc. Thankfully they were deleted as they would have been totally out of place, almost entirely comedic. Check them out here....
A sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes is to be released next year entitled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which will find Caesar and his ape companions in a battle with the last few humans. Andy Serkis returns to the cast as Caesar alongside Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises), Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III »

With the exception of the first two entries in the series, the “Hellraiser” movies are pretty much a waste of time for serious horror movie nerds. Some of the sequels are amusing in their own right — “Hellraiser 3″ is a personal favorite of mine despite its numerous flaws — though they don’t come close to matching the original flick. Hot on the heels of Clive Barker’s announcement that he’s working on a remake/reboot is director Michael Le Han’s “Hellraiser: Origins” trailer. While Pinhead sounds a little off, the clip itself is a thing of beauty. This guy definitely understands and appreciates the “Hellraiser” mythos, and it’s evident in every second of the embedded clip. Although Le Han directed the “Hellraiser: Origins” pitch trailer, a lot of the credit goes to special effects wizard Paul Gerrard. In case you were wondering, the guy has worked »

To say that it's been a long time since anything worthwhile has been done with the Hellraiser franchise would quite frankly be a huge understatement. After a string of terrible sequels, Dimension Films quickly slapped together Hellraiser: Revelations a few years back, a film that was made for the sole purpose of the company retaining the rights to the franchise. Dimension's plan for nearly a decade has been to reboot Clive Barker's original film, a plan that fell apart after a series of disagreements between the company and hired talent. It seems that Dimension just hasn't been able to see eye-to-eye with anyone when it comes to a Hellraiser remake, leaving the project dead in the water for many years - that is, until Clive Barker's recent announcement that he will be writing the reboot.
Needless to say, during the period of time where Dimension was doing nothing with the property, »

20th Century Fox has released the first teaser poster for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, director Matt Reeves' (Cloverfield, Let Me In) follow-up to the 2011 franchise reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes....
Update: According to Collider, the poster is a fan-made fake.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sees Andy Serkis reprising the role of Caesar alongside Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises), Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In), Enrique Murciano (Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line) and Judy Greer (13 Going on 30).
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to hit cinemas on July 18th, 2014. »

However you spin it, the writing’s on the wall for Lionsgate’s upcoming supernatural action thriller I, Frankenstein. Of course, expectations for the film, adapted from a graphic novel by Underworld writer-producer Kevin Grevioux, were never very high. For one, it’s set for release in the frozen cinematic wasteland of January. Additionally, the film’s first trailer impressed I, Frankenstein‘s visual flair without managing to clarify its convoluted plot or convince me that anything about the film can separate it from similar flicks like Underworld and Van Helsing. Unfortunately, the new poster for I, Frankenstein does little to alleviate my concerns about the film.
From the focus on the film’s CGI creations to star Aaron Eckhart looking out over a Gothic city, everything about this poster screams “Underworld.” And though that series is far from the worst current action franchise out there, it’s certainly not »

Last we heard on the “Hellraiser” reboot front, the story’s original author (and the original movie’s director) Clive Barker is currently writing the script. We haven’t heard who will be directing the film yet when it finally does happen — which isn’t a given, since it’s been years since the movie was first put into development. “Drive Angry’s” Patrick Lussier, who was originally attached to direct, is now off the project. Enter Paul Gerrard and Mike Le Han, who have put together a rather snazzy looking “pitch trailer” called “Hellraiser: Origins” to put their names into the hat. You can check it out below. I’m not sure if they’re both going for the job as a directing duo, or if it’s just Le Han directing and Gerrard doing production designs. Either/or. Writes the duo: From Paul Gerrard (Wrath Of The Titans, »

Actor William Fichtner has been out making the rounds promoting his new film, “Crossing Lines.” Along the way he has, of course, been asked about his work in the next “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” film. In interviews with Hollywood News and Flicks And The City, he’s dropped a few tidbits on the upcoming reboot directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of The Titans).
On Eric Sachs, aka “The Shredder,” and how the character actually seemed to evolve during the shoot, Fichtner says,
“What I read about Eric Sachs in the script was great, and then how the character has been moulded and changed when we started filming has become something really quite remarkable in terms of what we’ve seen before of the character. “I can’t give away too much in the story, but I can tell you that who Shredder is in the telling of this ‘Turtles’ is »

Many children of the ’80s remain warily on the fence about Platinum Dune’s upcoming live-action reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s an iconic and beloved property -one that’s arguably been ripe for a modern makeover for a very long time – but the involvement of producer Michael Bay (Transformers) and director Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans) has quite understandably given longtime fans pause, as has the news that the film’s release date has been moved to August, 2014.
Still, while some of the casting decisions remain dubious (namely Megan Fox as April O’Neil), the producers have chosen fan-favorite actors for the prominent supporting roles, including Whoopi Goldberg as April’s boss, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick (April’s cameraman in this incarnation), ...

Originally unveiled in 2012, Paul Gerrard (Wrath of the Titans, Battle: Los Angeles) and Mike Le Han’s “pitch trailer” for their a reboot of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, entitled Hellraiser: Origins, is set to launch on October 31st; and coming courtesy of the trailers official countdown website and Facebook page, here’s an awesome poster to get fans excited for the prospect…
Paul Gerrard and Mike Le Han [have] produced a teaser trailer to accompany the pitch document which has many more conceptual designs that revision Hellraiser. Paul designed the new look for Pinhead and was production designer on the shoot and Le Han pulled in all of his film resources and directed the teaser on the new Alex 4:3 camera with anamorphic lenses. With a crew of 47 an over 100 bloodied extras, the shoot was completed and is now in the depths of post production with a massive amount of VFX work being undertaken. »

Earlier this year came news that Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds is returning to ITV with Thunderbirds Are Go!, which prompted us to scribble a wish-list of what we'd like to see in the new series. A role for Grandma Tracy (tick!) and the return of the original series' Parker (sort of tick! Close enough anyway) were two such items.
Here are the actors announced as voicing Anderson's well-loved characters in this modern update...
David Graham as Parker
Bringing continuity from the original series to the new is David Graham, the voice of Brains, Gordon Tracy and more in the sixties Thunderbirds. Graham is to bring Lady Penelope's chauffeur Parker to life in this iteration of the series.
Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope

It may not hit theatres until 2015, but Walt Disney Pictures is giving us a first look at their upcoming live-action version of the classic fairy tale.
The film is also set to star Cate Blanchett as her wicked stepmother, Helena Bonham Carter as her off-kilter (naturally) fairy godmother, and Richard Madden ("Game of Thrones") as her very handsome and aptly-named Prince Charming. Frequent Branagh collaborator Derek Jacobi is on-board here as the King and Holliday Grainger ("Great Expectations," "Anna Karenina") and Sophie McShera ("Downton Abbey) are along for the ride as the infamous stepsisters Anastasia and Drisella. »

Disney just announced that it has started filming its first-ever live-action "Cinderella" movie in London. And along with the announcement, the studio unveiled the first photo of Lily James (Wrath of the Titans, "Downton Abbey") as the title character. Check out the photo below, along with some concept art. The story follows the fortunes of young Ella (James) whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, »
