The star of Gone Girl will receive the 26th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival’s (Psiff) Breakthrough Performance Award on January 3.
“Rosamund Pike perfectly taps into Gillian Flynn’s complex character from the novel Gone Girl, bringing to life the privileged, manipulative and calculating Amy Dunne,” said film festival chairman Harold Matzner. “It’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role.”

In 2009, the Internet went crazy over a rumor that Neil Patrick Harris would play The Flash in a big screen "Justice League" movie. That didn’t happen — Ezra Miller got the job and Harris settled with voicing the character in a direct-to-dvd animated film. But now it’s looking like "Gone Girl" costar could finally get a superheroic boost from the team behind CW’s "The Flash." They’ll be feeding Harris his lines when he takes on hosting duties for the 87th Academy Awards. Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced that writer, producer and director Greg Berlanti joins the team as head writer for his first Oscars telecast. The name should be familiar to anyone absorbed in comic book movie/TV sagas; Berlanti’s writing credits include the television series “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Everwood” and “Dawson’s Creek,” and the feature films “Wrath of the Titans” and “Green Lantern. »

Earlier tonight, actor Toby Kebbell (Dead Man's Shoes, Wrath Of The Titans, Warcraft) sent fans into a right tizzy when he revealed a few details about his take on Doctor Doom in Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. It turns out this incarnation of the classic Marvel villain will be a computer programmer named Victor Domashev, and he will use the blogger ID "Doom". A lot of people were already on the fence about this movie, and this will surely have knocked 'em off on the "this sounds bloody rubbish" side of the garden. Here is the video interview, in which Kebbel also spills some new info on the voice he'll be using for Domashev. He says that was the one thing he felt he could fully influence, and though he's playing him with an American accent, he wanted to add in a foreign inflection. I always try to »
When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.
Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.
Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.
Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

With Halloween coming up tomorrow, new information about Disney’s adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s seminal October novel Something Wicked This Way Comes seems rather apropos. The planned film version of the fantastic novel already has a director in the form of author/screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith, and now, it also has a writer: Wrath of the Titans scribe David Leslie Johnson.
Something Wicked This Way Comes is based on the Bradbury novel of the same name, and tells the story of two adolescent boys whose small Midwestern town is invaded by a traveling circus. The circus, and its head honcho Mr. Dark, promise to give the townfolk all they ever wanted, but at much higher price than a sideshow ticket. The novel has been adapted by Disney once before, in a version featuring Jonathan Pryce as Mr. Dark.
With the hiring of Johnson to pen the script, it now appears »

Earlier this year it was announced that Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Dark Shadows scribe Seth Grahame-Smith has plans to make his directorial debut with a new big screen adaptation of Ray Bradbury's novel, Something Wicked This Way Comes. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Wrath of the Titans screenwriter David Leslie Johnson is now set to draft the project for Walt Disney Pictures. »
I have no idea why they finally greenlit the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie adaptation, especially after the lackluster response to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a film I admittedly liked more than most (he threw a cow!), but have no problem understanding why many were turned off. Now, after several years of trying to get it off the ground, yet another Seth Grahme-Smith adaptation is on the way and just above is your first look at the Bennet sisters with their swords drawn courtesy of EW. The film stars Lily James (Wrath of the Titans) as Elizabeth alongside her sisters Jane (Bella Heathcote), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady) and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as it tells the story of the Bennet sisters and their time as zombie slayers after being taught how to fight like Japanese ninjas by Mr Darcy (Sam Riley). Jack Huston stars as Wickham and Matt Smith will play Mr. »

This is when we first meet the present-day version of Peter Quill/Star-Lord ("Chris Pratt") as dances to Redbone's “Come and Get Your Love”. There's also designs for the special chamber that housed the orb. Then there are designs for the alien bar and The Collector's collection, which are located on Knowhere (inside of a Celestial's fossilized head).

I think it's fair to say that fans didn't like the sound of a single thing about this Tmnt reboot from the moment they heard it was going to be produced by Michael Bay, and directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans, Battle La). Then came the news that Shredder would be a white dude named Sachs, the (mis)casting of Megan Fox as April O'Neil, the first reveal of the massive, hulking new Turtles -- basically, a miracle was needed to get the Heroes in a Half Shell faithful back on board. But then when promotion kicked in properly, some of the trailers/clips got a few laughs, many got used to the Turtle designs, and complete nerd-rage started to subside a little -- to the point where many even wished the movie well and hoped for the best. Well, you most certainly didn't get the best, but »
