American Crime Story: Where Else Have You Seen Gianni Before?

While the entire cast of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story bear a striking resemblance to their onscreen counterparts (have you seen Penelope Cruz as Donatella?) the most convincing casting choice has to be Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace himself. If you've been wondering where you know this actor from but can't place him, that might be due to his incredible, almost unrecognizable transformation into the famed fashion designer. Ramírez entered the world of acting as a minor player, often playing very small roles in Spanish movies and television shows. He got his big break starring alongside Keira Knightley and Mickey Rourke in Domino back in 2005. He also snagged supporting roles in movies like The Bourne Ultimatum, Vantage Point, and Zero Dark Thirty before moving on to bigger roles in like Ares in Wrath of the Titans and Mendoza in Deliver Us from Evil. Ramírez also starred in the short-lived miniseries Carlos.

Dungeons & Dragons movie set for 2021

Mike Cecchini Dec 20, 2017

The new Dungeons & Dragons film is official, and will be with us in the summer of 2021...

Paramount is looking to cast their spell on a Dungeons & Dragons movie. They're going ahead with it, and at least according to earlier reports, serious D&D campaigners will recognise the setting of this new movie as The Forgotten Realms. Paramount has dated the movie for July 23rd 2021 in the Us. The UK date is likely to be around there too.

Nothing is really known about the project right now, which has been quiet for quite some time (and has apparently changed studios from Warner Bros to Paramount since we last heard anything). Last year the word was that David Leslie Johnson, who has some fantasy experience from Wrath Of The Titans would write, while Rob Letterman, who had fun with the Goosebumps movie, would direct, and the plan

Outlander: Here's Why the Adorable Young Ian Looks So Familiar

Outlander's young Ian Murray, played by John Bell, has become a fan favorite since his introduction in episode "A Malcolm" in season three. Jenny and Ian's youngest son is fiercely loyal and has his eyes set on adventures beyond the Highlands, which often lands him in tricky situations. Not only does he hero-worship his Uncle Jamie and want to accompany him everywhere (just like his namesake), but he accepts Claire upon her return without question, being the only one of his siblings to readily call her "Auntie." If you've been trying to place where you've seen the young Scottish actor, you're not alone. Bell is most known for his role as Bain in the fantasy film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and its sequel, The Battle of the Five Armies. After winning the 2006 Blue Peter competition, Bell landed a small role in Doctor Who, which was his breakout,

at the 20th anniversary of ‘Titanic,’ where are all the knockoffs?

December 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of what would become one of the most lucrative and most deliriously popular movies ever made: James Cameron’s Titanic. It should also mark the 20th anniversary of the beginning of a wave of Titanic clones — and it says something about the movie industry that it doesn’t.

The epic romantic disaster drama debuted in Us cinemas on December 19th, 1997, and wouldn’t leave Us cinemas until October 1998, 41 weeks later. It earned $1.8 billion worldwide, and remained the biggest box-office hit ever until 2010 (when it was supplanted by Cameron’s own Avatar). Titanic wasn’t just a huge hit; it was an inescapable phenomenon. Showings were sold-out well into early 1998, even with the film in saturation release, and it stayed at the top of the box-office charts for 15 consecutive weeks (still a record). The film was a critical success, and it tied for

The Top 12 Composers of the 21st Century, From Hans Zimmer to Nick Cave

The Top 12 Composers of the 21st Century, From Hans Zimmer to Nick Cave
In an age where special effects reign supreme, there’s one aspect of the filmmaking process that hasn’t gone through a radical transformation — music. Some of the best movies in any given year would be sorely lacking without their memorable scores, and this has remained true well into the first two decades of the 21st century.

Film composers play an integral part in the filmmaking process, and there are a handful whose bodies of work stand out in recent years. Of course, this list of 12 major composers only begins to scratch the surface of the talent out there.

Universal Pictures Wants Channing Tatum To Play Van Helsing in Their Upcoming Reboot

As you know, Universal Pictures is completely rebooting their classic Universal monster films and they are calling it the Dark Universe. We've already known that the vampire hunter Van Helsing is going to be a part of their big plans, and now they have a big actor that they hope to get on board. According to THR, That actor is Channing Tatum.

Tom Cruise was originally in talks to play Van Helsing before he was cast in The Mummy, which didn't do as well as the studio hoped it would. Regardless of it underperforming, the studio is going to press forward with their Dark Universe plans. Hopefully, the next movie, The Bride of Frankenstein, will be better.

I'd actually be ok with Tatum in the role of a young Van Helsing. The fact that they want him, gives us a little insight into the direction the studio wants to go with the character.

New 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' on its Way from 'The Conjuring 2' Writer

David Leslie Johnson, whose credits include The Conjuring 2, Orphan and Wrath of the Titans, as well as the upcoming The Conjuring 3 and Dungeons and Dragons, has been tapped to write a new version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, according to Deadline. John Davis (The Predator) will produce. Jack Finney wrote the novel that started it all, titled The Body Snatchers. First published in 1954, it envisioned the town of Mill Valley, California under invasion by seeds from space that have drifted to Earth. The seeds bloom into pods; once in proximity to sleeping humans, the pods grow into exact duplicates of the humans, only without emotions or independent thoughts. The humans then die. It wasn't the first science fiction novel to tackle the idea of plants somehow becoming a...

A Fifth Invasion Of The Body Snatchers Movie Is Headed Our Way

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers is undoubtedly one of the most iconic stories in science fiction, which is perhaps why it’s been resurrected in cinema on a semi-regular basis. Since the first version of the tale arrived in theatres in 1956, we’ve seen a further three takes on that same narrative – some attempting to apply the social concerns of the time to the themes explored in the story. Now, we have a fifth heading our way, and this one comes from Warner Bros.

The source material is the 1955 novel The Body Snatchers, by Jack Finney – which began life as a serial published in Colliers Magazine in 1954. For those unfamiliar, the story sees alien seeds drift to Earth through space, and grow emotionally void clones of unsuspecting town residents while they sleep. The residents are then turned to dust, and the clones replace them in their community. The clones do not reproduce,

The Conjuring 3 confirmed, new writer hired

Simon Brew Jun 27, 2017

Warner Bros confirms The Conjuring 3 - but it might just need a new director this time...

Not a huge surprise this, but Warner Bros – through its New Line Cinema arm – has ordered another film in The Conjuring series. This one is going by the title of The Conjuring 3 for the time being. Expect that to change by the time the movie is released.

The script this time is going to be penned by Davie Leslie Johnson, who penned Orphan and Wrath Of The Titans, and has recently been working on Aquaman. James Wan and Peter Safran are set to produce.

There is going to be a slight change behind the camera this time, though. James Wan, who has directed the two films in the series to date, is not likely to helm this one. He’s currently shooting Aquaman for Warner Bros, and that’s going to

Spain Rebates Lure Productions From Abroad

Spain Rebates Lure Productions From Abroad
“Thanks to the foreign shoot tax credits, especially on the TV side, Spain is a big hot spot now,” says producer Adrian Guerra. That seems almost an understatement. Luring big shoots is a big growth industry in Spain. But every region is its own story. Beyond Madrid, here are some of Spain’s key filming locales:

Canary Islands

With one of the most attractive tax systems in Europe, the Canary Islands have become a top shooting destination. Per industry sources, foreign shoots have spent some €200 million ($218 million) in Spain since 2015. Of them, the largest part has gone to the Canaries.

Last year, 14 feature films rolled there, including Robert Zemeckis’ “Allied,” Rodrigo Cortés production “Down a Dark Hall,” and Sony Pictures-Atresmedia’s “Oro.” Among TV dramas: Netflix’s “Black Mirror” plus BBC’s “Doctor Who” and “Silent Witness.”

Exclusive Interview: Sam Worthington Talks The Shack, Avatar 2 And Hacksaw Ridge

Since Wrath of the Titans in 2012, Sam Worthington has successfully made the transition from leading man in studio blockbusters to dependable supporting actor in independent films. Following his last appearance as Perseus, the actor has peppered his resume with excellent turns in efforts like The Keeping Room, Everest and Hacksaw Ridge. Now, he’s back in theaters to play lead Mack Phillips in the upcoming film adaptation of the bestselling novel, The Shack.

Mack’s life is destroyed when his youngest daughter is abducted during a camping trip, with nothing but her clothes recovered from a secluded shack. After receiving an invitation possibly from God, he returns to the shack where he embarks on the spiritual journey of a lifetime.
