Ah-nuld is back and he's ready to kick butt and take names as he leads an elite and dangerous DEA task force in his latest testosterone filled action movie Sabotage. This trailer is overflowing with so much manliness that you may be tempted to crush an empty beer can against your forehead. This latest Arnold Schwarzenegger flick is, as you would expect, loaded with bullets, drug cartel, F-bombs, and hot chicks. As exciting as all of that sounds, there is also a story in the mix of the shoot 'em up - blow 'em up action. It revolves around an elite DEA task force who become victims one by one after successfully executing a high-stakes raid on one of the world's deadliest drug cartels. Schwarzenegger, who plays the leader of the task force John Breacher Wharton, starts to suspect his own men of possibly stealing a large sum of money from their successful cartel bust. »

According to the site, Fox and director Josh Trank (Chronicle) are looking at Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) and Sam Riley (Control) for the part of Victor Von Doom, who was played by Julian McMahon in Fantastic Four and its sequel Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

The casting for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot continues with four actors up for the role of the villain Doctor Doom. Those actors include Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), and Sam Riley (On the Road).
These are all fine young actors, and I seriously think that any one of them would be awesome as this villain. Whoever ends up being cast will join Jamie Bell (The Thing), Michael B. Jordan (The Human Torch), Kate Mara (The Invisible Woman), and Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic).
The Fantastic Four is set to be released on June 19th, 2015. Of the actors listed above, who would you like to see take on the role of Doctor Doom?

We already know that Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan and Jamie Bell will play the superhero team in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot. And now comes word that casting has started to find the movie's villain. It was previously reported that Dr. Doom will once again be the main villain, but will be played by a woman. The Wrap has now debunked the latter rumor by revealing the four actors who are being considered for the Dr. Doom role. Those actors are: Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) and Sam Riley (On the Road). Filminng is expected to begin this month in Louisiana, which means that casting will be locked soon. "Fantastic Four" will be directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and is set to hit theaters on June 19th, 2015. »
With The Fantastic Four being announced earlier this month, 20th Century Fox are now looking for their main antagonist, Dr. Victor Von Doom. It looks as though the search is narrowing as four actors are now being considered to take on Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell in the rebooted franchise. The list is comprised of three British actors and one Irish actor, dispelling rumours of a female Von Doom.
Sam Riley, Eddie Redmayne, Toby Kebbell, and Domhnall Gleeson are all being considered for one of Marvel’s most iconic villains, played previously by Julian McMahon and Joseph Culp in the 2005 and 1994 films respectively. Riley made waves in 2007 for his role in Control as Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. He will soon be appearing in Disney’s Maleficent. Eddie Redmayne proved his acting chops in My Week With Marilyn and Les Miserables. Kebbell was recently in »

After years of residing in limbo and teetering on the edge of having the rights revert back to Marvel, 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot has emerged as one of the movies I’m most curious to see in 2015. Chronicle director Josh Trank is at the helm, and we finally know who will be suiting up as the titular super-family this time around.
Miles Teller will play Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara is set for the role of Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan will play Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Jamie Bell will play Ben Grimm/The Thing. Since that particular bit of casting news broke, fans have been eagerly waiting to see who would land the coveted role of the team’s nemesis, Doctor Doom. Early rumors suggested the part may go to a woman rather than a man, but it seems Fox »

With Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller and Kate Mara lined up to play the title superhero quartet in Fantastic Four, it's time for the 20th Century Fox comic book reboot to find a villain. The film won't be going an alternate route by using someone other than the team's arch nemesis: Dr. Victor von Doom. So who is up to play the metallic bad guy? The Wrap reports the shortlist has been narrowed down to Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Sam Riley (On the Road) and Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). This just might be the youngest superhero cast yet. More below! My personal choice for the role would be Toby Kebbell. The actor isn't well known but you can see him in Wrath of the Titans, and he has a pivotal role in this year's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. »

The Fantastic Four reboot has its eye set on Doctor Doom as its main villain, with four actors currently competing for the coveted part. Up for the role are four rising actors who all have foreign accents and are between 30 to 34-years old. They are all virtual unknowns as well.
While no actor has pulled into the lead, the names being mentioned are Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables; Jupiter Ascending), Sam Riley (Maleficent) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans; Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
Remember when there was a rumor that The Fantastic Four's version of Doctor Doom (aka Victor von Doom) might be a woman? Well, if a new casting shortlist is to be believed, it looks like that rumor doesn't hold water. The villainous role has apparently been narrowed down to these four blokes: Sam Riley (On the Road), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), or Domhnall Gleeson (About Time). Whoever ends up with the part, it's going to be a 30-something actor from the U.K. who goes up against Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell in the title roles. Hit the jump for more. As The Wrap reports, Riley, Redmayne, Kebbell, and Gleeson are (fittingly) the final four for the role of The Fantastic Four foe of Doctor Doom. Jack Huston was also reported as being in the mix weeks ago, »

With Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell all officially locked in to play Marvel's new first family, The Fantastic Four reboot is now looking to cast its main villain, Dr. Victor von Doom. According to sources of The Wrap, 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank have narrowed down their search to four: Sam Riley (Control), Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), and Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd). It's also reported that Jack Huston was once considered a fifth contender, however, he is "no longer believed" to be in contention. Three of the Dr. Doom candidates are British while Gleeson is Irish, and their ages range 30 to 34; considerably older than Mr. Fantastic's, Human Torch's and The Thing's actors. What do you think? The Fantastic Four stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell, and is directed by Josh Trank from a »

While it didn't come close to matching its predecessor, 300: Rise of An Empire still managed to dominate the weekend with over $45 million. Also opening this weekend, Mr. Peabody & Sherman became the latest DreamWorks Animation movie to disappoint at the domestic box office.Playing at 3,470 locations, 300: Rise of an Empire's $45.03 million debut was off 36 percent from the original 300, which opened on the same weekend in 2007. Adjusting for ticket price inflation and 3D premiums, Rise of an Empire sold roughly half as many tickets. Still, it was a step up from other comparable titles like G.I. Joe: Retaliation ($40.5 million), 10,000 B.C. ($35.9 million), Wrath of the Titans ($33.5 million) and Immortals ($32.2 million).Rise of an Empire was never expected to match the original 300 at the domestic box office. While marketing did a solid job positioning the movie as a revenge tale, the story just wasn't as compelling this time around. Also, the »

“300” blew away the box office this very weekend back in 2007, but seven years is a long time and that style of filmmaking is no longer a hot, new thing. The sequel, “300: Rise of an Empire” will still win the weekend, especially considering it’s only facing off against a family-friendly animated film, but it doesn’t have a shot at matching the original’s $70 million start. It’s much more likely that it’ll wind up in line with “Wrath of the Titans” with about $35 million. A March debut does tend to mean big money for animated releases, but with “The Lego Movie” still going strong, “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” [ Read More ]

Thursday Update: 300: Rise of an Empire earned $3.3 million from late Thursday showings. That's a step up from G.I. Joe: Retaliation ($2.2 million) and is significantly higher than Wrath of the Titans ($1 million at midnight). This suggests that a $40 million weekend is a pretty safe bet for the 300 sequel.Forecast: Seven years after 300 ruled the box office, a sequel finally arrives in theaters this weekend. While Rise of an Empire isn't going to come anywhere close to that movie's $70 million debut, it should still be mighty enough to take first place ahead of DreamWorks Animation's Mr. Peabody & Sherman.In March 2007, 300 reached theaters with fairly modest expectations: its cast was largely unknown at the time, and director Zack Snyder's only previous movie was the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake ($59 million). Its mix of unique visuals and high-stakes storytelling proved to be an appealing combination, though, and it wound up setting »

Classic literature makes it to the big screen in this epic sequel to Zack Snyder's 300...
As a classical literature geek, I’ve always thought it’s a great shame that there’s such a dearth of epic Hollywood takes on a subject rich with unique tales and especially one that is so full of fantastical visual imagery.
A decade ago there was plenty of promise in Wolfgang Petersen’s take on The Illiad, Troy, with its near perfect casting and lengthy run time, yet the end result was strangely flat considering the endless slew of brutal action described in the original text. Since then most films have either embraced full blown fantasy in the likes of Wrath Of The Titans (let’s not mention the remake of Clash), or chosen more grounded tales such as the disappearance of the Ninth Legion as seen »
Producer Galen Walker just confirmed via his Facebook page that we'd be getting our first look at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in action fairly soon when the trailer debuts with Captain America: The Winter Soldier in April. "Ok-Cool Beans folks! the new "Ninja Turtles" Teaser will make it's debut in front of the New Captain America Movie - April 4th. We are ready and prepared for lift off! Been a long haul." It's not very often we'd get a first trailer for a movie just four months before it's released, but hopefully we'll at least get a few stills etc in the meantime. There's actually still no official synopsis for the reboot either! But here's the cast details. Tmnt is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans), and produced by Michael Bay.
