The Office Star David Denham Will Pick Up The Rifle For Michael Bay’s 13 Hours

3 March 2015 3:12 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Bay’s predilection for explosions will be shifting their focus from the robo-orgy leanings of his Transformers franchise to a serious adaptation of real life events. 13 Hours is based on the Libyan shootings of September 2012, which left the U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead after Islamic militants attacked a U.S. compound.

Bay’s movie will chronicle the story of six members of a militarized security team, who attempted to rescue the Americans stationed at the U.S. State Department Special Mission Compound in Benghazi. Already enlisted to play the security team are John Krasinski (also of The Office), James Badge Dale (Stretch, Parkland), Max Martini (Pacific Rim) and Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is The New Black).

Fresh off a stint on Parenthood, which recently wrapped its final season, and a small, supporting role on True Detective season 2, David Denham will join the above crew. »

Castle season 7 episode 16 review: The Wrong Stuff

2 March 2015 12:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Castle delivers a strong episode which would have been even better had it trusted its fans to get its sci-fi references on their own...

This review contains spoilers.

7.16 The Wrong Stuff

One of the things some of the commenters on past reviews have pointed out, you almost always know, much like a Scooby Doo mystery, whodunit on Castle because Castle rarely varies: it’s the first suspect we meet—the one who inevitably is rejected because he or she has an alibi. This week’s episode, The Wrong Stuff, may just be the right stuff because it sticks to this formula but plays with it in such a way to truly surprise.

What is no surprise, from the very beginning of the episode, is that this is going to be a lot of fun. The Wrong Stuff opens with a Martian murder, followed quickly by a scene in which two »

10 Movie Passion Projects That Will Never Get Made

27 February 2015 1:42 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Making movies isn’t half as easy as it looks. Next time you’re ready to totally trash a film, take into account that nobody sets out to make a bad movie – it’s just that the amount of time, effort, people, and interference both creative and otherwise from forces both inside and outside of a production all factor into it. It’s a wonder films ever get finished, let alone that some of them turn out to be pretty good.

Of course, for ever masterpiece there are a dozen failures, from the big-budget gamble that didn’t pay off to the direct-to-video schlock that didn’t have much chance in the first place. But even apart from them, there’s a third, separate category: the films that never actually got made. The unrealised projects that didn’t quite get off the ground.

The streets of Hollywood are littered with them. »

Robin Hood: Origins script being shopped around by Knights of the Round Table writer

27 February 2015 6:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Had enough of origin stories? Well, the man behind Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie Knights of the Round Table is shopping around his new script Robin Hood: Origins.

According to Deadline, Joby Harold has written a “dark and gritty” take on the infamous character. At present no studios are interested in developing it, but Sony are planning on a Robin Hood movie and could be interested in using Harold’s script as its basis. The Sony plan is to create a shared universe type franchise based on Robin Hood characters, similar to Marvel’s superhero movies.

Disney are also working on a Robin Hood movie entitled Nottingham & Hood, but its unlikely they will be interested in Harold’s script as their vision is to be more like Pirates of the Caribbean.

Robin Hood last graced the silver screen in Ridley Scott’s 2010 effort starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, »

Pacific Rim Writer Travis Beacham Wants to Make a Teslapunk Fantasy Movie About Celtic Mythology

27 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

All of the things in that headline sound great. Normally I try to steer clear of stories where Writer/Director/Actor X wants to make Movie Y because wish-fulfillment is not the same as announcing a genuine project, but in the case of Travis Beacham and The Curiosity, things are a little different. For one, this isn’t a writer throwing his hat in the ring for a blockbuster that’s already in the works (“Sure, I’ll direct Justice League: Rise of the Planet of Justice!”). For two, Beacham is being moderately open about his concept and the process of making it his directorial debut. From what he’s shared on his personal website, The Principle Fantastic, he’s already shot at least some scenes for a short film that will stand as a proof-of-concept for a film he says, “draws heavily from Celtic mythology (with a slight dash of Teslapunk thrown in) to tell »

27 February 2015 | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

What better time than now to feast your eyes on some of Charlie Hunnam's sexiest moments? The British actor has been in the spotlight for more than a decade, but thanks to the popularity of Sons of Anarchy, his starring role in 2013's Pacific Rim, and the fact that he backed out of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, Charlie has definitely been making more headlines over the past few years. For a fun dose of eye candy, relive his sexiest moments on Sons of Anarchy, then take a look at 22 times Charlie looked really, really good.

Kingsman: Bond with a Gangster Swag (Featuring Brad Allen “Gorgeous”)

21 February 2015 9:22 AM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Kingsman: the Secret Service is the fifth directorial effort from director Matthew Vaughan and yet another film that I thoroughly enjoyed. I should mention that I have been a fan of Mark Vaughan’s work since Layer Cake, one of my favorite British gangster movies and Vaughan’s first feature. So I admit I’m a little biased, I loved Kick Ass, I really loved X-Men: First Class, and I was so excited when I heard about this film. Yes, I know I left out Stardust, yes, it’s because I really didn’t like it.

Based on yet another comic by Mark Millar, Kingsman is a breathtaking re-imagination of the whole British spy genre…and then some. Interestingly enough this is not the first Mark Millar project Vaughan has helmed, the first being Kick –Ass 1 (the better one). Vaughan is also credited as “co-plotter” on The Secret Service, the »

Leviathan (2014) – The Review

19 February 2015 5:59 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Well, sometimes some confusion can be a good thing. When I was first aware of this film’s title, I thought that this may be a remake/reboot of the 1989 Peter Weller starring monster thriller with a massive CGI beastie akin to those from Pacific Rim or last Summer’s retooled Godzilla. Seems I was mistaken. Leviathan doesn’t concern itself with a colossal rampaging demon risen from the depths, but rather it’s a complex drama set in a dreary, Russian fishing village (yes, it has subtitles). The title doesn’t refer to a scaly giant that the film’s heroes must face. They instead must square off against an even more formidable adversary, for this leviathan is comprised not of claws and fangs, but corruption and the cruelties of fate itself.

The story begins as the sun rises over that Russian village, as Nikolay (Aleksey Serebryakov) heads away »

Trailer Trashin’: Guillermo del Toro Returns to Horror in Crimson Peak

18 February 2015 8:25 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. I hope you all had a good Valentine’s Day weekend, and that a lot of you got out to see Kingsman: The Secret Service, which is totally awesome. This coming Sunday also brings us the 87th Academy Awards, during which I’ll be both hoping Michael Keaton wins Best Actor for Birdman, and cursing the Academy for not giving a Best Animated Feature nomination to The Lego Movie. But in this meantime, this week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ is our first look at one of my most anticipated films of the fall, Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.

Premise: In the aftermath of a family tragedy, a young author is torn between the love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. »

Oscars 2015: Variety Critics Pick Who Should Win

18 February 2015 10:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar night is nearly upon us. Variety reviewers Scott Foundas, Justin Chang, Peter Debruge and Guy Lodge don’t get ballots, but if they did, here’s how they would vote in the top eight categories.

Scott Foundas

Best Picture: “American Sniper.” It’s funny that my two favorite films in this category, “Sniper” and “Selma,” are the two that have been repeatedly pitted against each other by awards-season pundits scrapping for a fight. The wildly disproportionate box office grosses of the two movies has added a certain David-vs.-Goliath aspect to the narrative, too — at least until you consider that “Selma,” with close to $50 million domestically, has far outgrossed both presumptive best pic frontrunners, “Boyhood” and “Birdman.” But all such comparisons only serve to diminish the artistry of two movies that cast unusually sober and sophisticated gazes on contentious periods of American history, one still unfolding daily in the headlines, »

He was used to fighting Kaiju in Pacific Rim, but for his new film, Max Martini will have to deal with some very real, and very dangerous opponents.
