Rosamund Pike burst on to the scene as Bond girl Miranda Frost in Die Another Day back in 2002, and has since explored roles as diverse as Jane in Pride and Prejudice and Queen Andromeda in Wrath of the Titans.
Her newest role may be her most eye-catching, playing Amy opposite Ben Affleck's Nick in David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. She told Digital Spy that she relishes playing provocative characters, but why she has "to disappear for a while" after this movie.
The film centres around the disappearance of Amy Elliott-Dunne (Pike). Her husband Nick (Affleck) becomes the chief suspect, as the investigation begins to reveal unsavoury truths from the couple's past.
Charles Dance and Lena Headey are both joining the production of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The actors are best known for their roles in Game of Thrones, playing Tywin Lannister and Cersei Lanninter respectively.
The pair join the continuing growing cast of the adaptation of the popular novel which is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, albeit one that introduces brain eating zombies into the story. Less than a week ago it was announced that Matt Smith of Doctor Who fame had joined the cast as Mr Collins. However there is still no word as to who Charles Dance and Lena Heady will play in the film.
Production is set to start today with Burr Steers directing the flick. The film is set for release sometime in 2015. The film also stars Lily James (Wrath of the Titans), Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Worried About the Boy »

British actor Toby Kebbell is on a roll as he’s now in talks to play the villainous Messala in MGM and Paramount’s upcoming remake of the award winning 1959 classic which won Charlton Heston an Oscar.
Kebbell delivered a fantastic performance in an episode of Channel 4’s critically acclaimed Black Mirror and found fame in Hollywood after landing roles in Wrath of the Titans and The Counselor. However, he proved that British actors are always the best choice to play villains as motion-capture creation Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. He’ll also suit up next year as the evil Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four.
In Ben-Hur, Kebbell will play Messala, the man that the title character (who will be played by Jack Huston) hopes to take vengeance on after surviving years of slavery because his best friend betrayed him.

Teenagers, even non-ninjas and non-turtles, have been eating up this cinematic waste product for weeks now. In one way, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a triumph for producer Michael Bay in that it is equally as godawful as his Transformers: Age of Extinction and a hit nonetheless. Pardon my cynicism. But it's hard to stomach the Bay contempt for youth audiences that says: You kids will lap up any crap I market with a big enough budget, even this worthless, brainless, needless reboot of the Ninja Turtle franchise. Director Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, »

Concept Art by Justin Goby Fields 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.

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New »

Having knocked Guardians of the Galaxy from the top of the U.S. chart this past weekend, Paramount Pictures has continued the promotional campaign for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by releasing a new featurette that focuses on the turtles’ arch-nemesis Shredder; check it out below, and read our review of the film here…
“The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.”

It's hard to say whether it was mostly nostalgic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans or kids used to seeing them on TV and in TV stores, but the movie (directed by Wrath of the Titans' Jonathan Liebesman) has been a huge hit with a $65 million opening. In fact, Paramount Pictures were so pleased by the result that they gave a sequel the green light! For the most part, the critics have not been kind; it has a 19% score on Rotten Tomatoes and the consensus describes it as, "Neither entertaining enough to recommend nor remarkably awful," and, "the dullest movie ever made about talking bipedal reptiles." Ouch! Critics aside, what did You guys think? We know that it hasn't reached a few countries just yet, but here's your chance to let us know »
20th Century Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has become the seventh movie of the year to cross $500 million at the global box office, with the simian sequel currently sitting on $503.9 million, having pulled in $197.8 million domestically and $306.1 million from international markets. That figure makes Dawn the highest grossing instalment of the Apes franchise, with its predecessor Rise of the Planet of the Apes having earned $481.8 million back in 2011.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves (Let Me In) and sees Rise of the Planet of the Apes star Andy Serkis returning as 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).

We reported on Wednesday the opening night for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could mean that its success will de-throne Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Well, the weekend numbers are in (we’ll have the full report up tomorrow) and the Michael Bay produced live-action reboot has pulled in a huge $65 million domestic, not only knocking James Gunn’s space opera from the number one spot, but also leading to Paramount announcing a sequel.
Read our ★★ review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles here.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for release on June 3rd 2016 and will again be produced by Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes. No word yet on whether Jonathan Liebsman will return to direct. It will open the same weekend as Paramount’s own Sausage Party and a week before X-Men: Apocalypse and Disney’s Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.

The latest revival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opened strongly this weekend at the North American box office. The action flick displaced last weekend’s number one champ Guardians of the Galaxy, which held its ground with a solid second place showing. Warner’s Into the Storm and Disney’s The Hundred-Foot Journey also opened to okay numbers while Step Up: All In proved to have two left feet. Thanks to the arrival of Turtles and the strong second weekend of Guardians, the box office had its second weekend of increased business over totals from not only 2013 (+23%), but also 2012 (+31%).
There have, according to IMDb, been three animated television series, one live action film series that ran from 1990-1993 and an CG-animated reboot from 2007 that preceded the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Despite the endless reincarnations in multiple media formats, it appears that the heroes in a half-shell haven’t lost their appeal. »

You can be sure of two things when you combine producer Michael Bay with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. One, your eyeballs will get a workout. And two, the most snarky critics will be tempted to write their reviews before the film even rolls.
In Wrath of the Titans’ director Jonathan Liebesman’s new live-action, CG-heavy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which stars Megan Fox as Turtle-pal April O’Neil, the four Renaissance-named turtles are still living up their name. Johnny Knoxville voices Leonardo, who leads the Turtles against their traditional antagonist Shredder—as well as a mysterious puppet-master who springs chaos on New York. »

It may be one of the most “hated-on” movies released this year (or any year for that matter), but it looks like the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could topple Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy after a terrific opening night.
The movie played in just over 2,500 theatres and earned an impressive $4.1 million on its opening night, which is a better number than Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Disney’s Maleficent and Lucy.
Looking at previous trends, industry experts feel that this uptake could mean that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be the number one movie over the weekend, knocking Guardians of the Galaxy from its throne. While the last three Marvel movies have seen a drop of around 60%, the James Gunn directed sci-fi epic has had a lot of positive word-of-mouth and big weekday numbers, so it may only drop 40%. It could be a close battle. »

Mutant turtles living in New York City sewers and fighting crime isn't exactly what you'd call a "realistic" premise, and really, the inherent goofiness has always been part of the charm for a property that's spawned three animated series, multiple movies, and countless toy lines. But for some reason, the new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman, still spends an inordinately large amount of runtime pointing out that, yes, they know how ridiculous this all must sound.
The basic plot of the new reboot, as laid out in a comic book-style prologue, sees New York in the grips of a major crime wave thanks to the Foot Clan, now a paramilitary force led by Shredder (Tohoru Masamune). And the only ones who can stop them are our teenage heroes, who've been preparing for years to assume their rightful place as the city's »
