Sharon Stone Joins ‘American Ultra’

8 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hollywood heavyweight Sharon Stone has joined the cast of action comedy American Ultra.

Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars as Mike, a hapless, lazy stoner, happy with his boring life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart – Twilight). However, unknown to Mike and everyone around him he’s actually a secret agent. When his past flashes before his eyes the realities of the responsibility of his power surface, especially when he’s called in to support a deadly government operation. Co-starring Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), John Leguizamo (Kick-ass 2), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Stone joins the cast as Victoria Lasseter.

With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) directing and Max Landis (Chronicle) behind the script this could go either way – brilliantly witty and action-packed…or a little lacklustre. We’ll have to wait and see.

American Ultra is already in production. It currently has »

New TV spot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its UK release tomorrow [read our review here], and just so we don’t forget Sony has released the umpteenth TV spot for its superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which we’ve got for you below…

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man.

For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn, »

With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set to start rolling out in international markets this week [read our review here], Sony has continued its marketing blitz with the release of a new TV spot teasing an unhappy ending for lovebirds Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone)…

 

Meanwhile, during the MTV Awards a new clip was released showing a battle between Spidey and Electro (Jamie Foxx) in Times Square…

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man.

In Defence Of... Found Footage, the unfairly maligned horror subgenre

12 April 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Found footage films get a bad rap - and worse reviews. But the genre combines the vitality of punk rock with the reach of a video viral, and it has earned, if not respectability, then at least a respectful reappraisal. Some found footage (hereafter Ff) films are, admittedly, unwatchable (see The Devil Inside or, better, don't). But others, such as recent West Country-set religious chiller The Borderlands, or Bobcat Goldthwait's creepy Bigfoot hunt Willow Creek (out on May 2), are closer to unmissable.

Beyond an ominous title card, Ff films require little backstory, and the genre has only a brief history of its own. An uncompromising, hand-over-the-camera-lens look at totalitarianism in Vietnam-era America, Peter Watkins' 1971 mock-doc Punishment Park is considered Ff's chief forebear. Ruggiero Deodato's still-troubling Cannibal Holocaust (1979), however, is the most striking early archetype. Following a gonzo film crew into tribal Amazonia, it puts video-nasty atrocities through a film-school filter, »

11 April 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now that the world premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out of the way, we can expect Sony to really ramp up the marketing for its upcoming superhero sequel… if it can be ramped up any further, after what’s been an absolute blitz of promotion these past couple of months. Next up is a new featurette entitled ‘Scoring Spidey’, which delves into the score by Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams; check it out below…

Venom and The Sinister Six movies to arrive before The Amazing Spider-Man 4, Sinister Six featurette released

11 April 2014 12:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before it revealed its plans for Venom and The Sinister Six, Sony set out its stall for the future of Marvel’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man by announcing that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 would hit cinemas on June 10th 2016, followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 4 on May 4th 2018.

Well, it seems that with the recently announced spin-offs, Sony’s plans have changed and the studio is now looking to release both Venom and The Sinister Six before Spidey’s fourth outing, with producer Matt Tolmach telling Den of Geek that:

“Before we know what we do with Spider-Man 4, we’re going to do Sinister Six, Venom and Spider-Man 3. There is going to be a lot of crossover in those movies. So we’re just not at Spider-Man 4, because we still have a whole other Spider-Man movie and two other movies. So we don’t know yet what [Spider-Man 4] is going to be. »

Fantastic Four's Kate Mara Has No Idea If Her Character Has A Suit

10 April 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Kate Mara is one of the stars of the new Fantastic Four film, playing the Invisible Woman aka Sue Storm. Currently doing promotion for Transcendence, she was asked about the superhero tentpole slated for release next summer. And while it's still early and she doesn't know much about the production, she's clearly amped about being a part of the comic book movie world, even if she doesn't seem to have any idea who the Fantastic Four really are. Here's IGN's video interview segment that has Mara talking about her take on Sue Storm and what she knows about the Fantastic Four film: The first part that sticks out about this video is the quote below. "I think we're making a very grounded version of a superhero film. I just trust Josh Trank's vision, I was a very big fan of Chronicle." Which... okay... grounded. This is The Fantastic Four »

Kate Mara Spills ‘Fantastic Four’ Secrets

10 April 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

2005 and 2007′s Fantastic Four movies which starred the likes of Jessica Alba and Chris Evans haven’t gone down in history as one of the greatest superhero films around. To most people the first film is barely memorable but that’s isn’t surprising considering it came out the same summer as the mighty Batman Begins. Heck it wasn’t even the most memorable Alba movie released, as Sin City burst onto screens during the same season.

The lack of critical success hasn’t stopped the studios from taking the film down the reboot road with Chronicles Josh Trank at the helm. Most fans were pretty pleased when this director accepted the job as Chronicle is one of the most original films of the last decade or so. It didn’t take long for him to get backs up though with the controversial casting of Michael B Jordan in the role of The Human Torch, »
