After making his film debut at just 12 years of age in 1990's Lord of the Flies, James Badge Dale returned to the craft with a string of roles in the early 2000s, appearing on 24 as Chase Edmunds, Rescue Me as Timo Gavin, and The Black Donnellys as Samson. He had a breakout year in 2010, starring in the HBO mini-series The Pacific and the brilliant but short-lived AMC show Rubicon, which lead to impressive turns in The Conspirator, Shame, The Grey, and Flight. This versatile actor returns to the big screen once again in Iron Man 3 as the villainous Eric Savin a.k.a. Coldblood, the Extremis-enhanced soldier who does the dirty work for Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian. I recently had the chance to speak with James Badge Dale about his bad-ass bald look, »
There were a surprising amount of baddies in Iron Man 3. Director Shane Black‘s Tony Stark adventure put the idea of multiple villains being a bad idea to rest. One of those villains — or henchman, if you want to get technical — was played by a familiar face, James Badge Dale. Badge Dale chewed on every piece of Black’s dialog and his character’s eccentricities. Even with the technical challenges, it’s a role Badge Dale wanted to let loose with. The actor used to work construction, and he wanted to bring that mentality to the character. A Shane Black henchman isn’t the only role we’ll see James Badge Dale in this summer, as he has both World War Z and The Lone Ranger next on dock, and they represent a chance for the actor to reach an audience that maybe doesn’t frequently watch Shame or The Pacific with their free time.

The history of video adaptations is long and almost completely ugly, with nightmares like Silent Hill and Max Payne and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li vastly outweighing modest successes like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the Resident Evil franchise. But if anyone's gonna shake things up, it's Michael Fassbender, right? The star of Shame and X-Men: First Class might not be who you'd expect to shake up the video game adaptation racket, but as the star of the upcoming Assassin's Creed adaptation, he might be the hero we deserve after all. Now we know when this attempted rescue effort will happen-- updates at Box Office Mojo reveal that Assassin's Creed has set a release date of May 22, 2015, meaning it will arrive just a few weeks after The Avengers 2. In other updates, Ridley Scott's Exodus-- known otherwise as his Moses movie-- has set a release »
Am I alone in thinking Fox's upcoming new take on "Sleepy Hollow" looks like a helluva lot of fun? Check out these two new promos for the show, and let us know what you think!
"Sleepy Hollow" will air Monday nights on Fox at 9Pm.
What if you suddenly woke up from the throes of death 250 years in the future to find the world is on the brink of destruction, caused by unimaginable events, and you are humanity’s last hope? Welcome to "Sleepy Hollow," the thrilling new mystery-adventure drama from co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek and Transformers franchises, “Fringe”). In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. »

Funding for screen version of Jake Chapman's 2008 novel, written and directed by the artist brothers, to be secured from the art world
The Chapman brothers, Jake and Dinos, are to become the latest British artists to transfer their work to the world of film with a planned feature-length adaptation of Jake's debut novel, The Marriage of Reason and Squalor.
Published in 2008, Chapman's book is a typically jagged satire of the paperback romance novel. The story centres on bride-to-be Chlamydia Love and her dalliance with the "devilishly unattractive" writer Helmut Mandragorass. The Chapmans plan to co-direct the film adaptation, for which they are currently writing a screenplay.
The Marriage of Reason and Squalor opens with Love gifted a desert island by her fiancee. Matters soon turn awry when the young woman develops a fascination with Mandragorass, the property's rightful owner. A battle begins over the island and, ultimately, Chlamydia's love. »

We return with another edition of the Indie Spotlight, highlighting recent independent horror news sent our way. This week’s feature includes first details on Harbinger Down, trailers for Beneath and Inbred, release details for The Black Dahlia Haunting, and much more:
First Details on Harbinger Down: “Award-winning Visual Effects artists Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr., co-founders of Studio Adi (Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc.) launched a campaign today for Harbinger Down. “In the spirit of sci-fi/horror classics, Alien and The Thing, Harbinger Down is a tense, claustrophobic full-length creature film that will feature only practical Animatronic and Makeup Effects,” announced Gillis, who will write and direct.
“Our company, Amalgamated Dynamics, will create the kind of Oscar caliber Creature Effects for which we are known,” commented Woodruff, who will produce along with Studio Adi’s Jennifer Tung. Lance Henriksen is set to star.

Oscar Wilde is uncharacteristically muffled in “The Selfish Giant,” an abstruse contempo interpretation of Wilde’s Christian fairy tale, but writer-helmer Clio Barnard’s voice comes through loud and clear. A jaggedly moving study of a feral adolescent (astonishing newcomer Conner Chapman) on a rough journey to grace, the pic is ostensibly more conventional than Barnard’s acclaimed hybrid-doc debut, “The Arbor,” but exhibits stunning formal progress nonetheless. Though her tender-tough worldview arguably hews closer to that of Shane Meadows, this demanding but eminently distributable art film should elevate Barnard to the bracket of streetwise femme compatriots Andrea Arnold and Lynne Ramsay.
Fans of the barely classifiable “The Arbor,” a biopic of working-class Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar that inventively fused firsthand testimony with lipsynched performance, may be initially disappointed that Barnard has chosen a more straightforward narrative path for her sophomore effort. However, after a few opening scenes that suggest »

When James Badge Dale finally took the role of the "muscle" in "Iron Man 3," it was a pretty big deal for the actor. He admits now that he has had plenty of opportunities to star in superhero movies, but it was only the role of Eric Savin that snagged his attention.
"I've actually passed on even auditioning for almost every superhero movie I've been sent because I didn't think I could play someone in a suit," he told Movies.com. "I don't want to be in a cape or wear a codpiece. So this was the absolute best of both worlds. I get to be in a superhero movie where my suit is actually just a regular suit."
Well, it's true that Dale didn't need to wear a suit in "Iron Man 3," but apparently there was another big draw that made this film his first superhero movie. Dale »

Braff launched the film on Kickstarter late last month, and received pledges beyond the $2m. goal within a matter of days.
“Wish I Was Here” tells the story of Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor, husband and dad who at 35 is still trying to find his true place in life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially, and Aidan passes his time fantasizing about being the futuristic Space Knight he always dreamed he’d be as a little kid. »

Screenwriters and producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are certainly busy these days; the duo currently have Star Trek Into Darkness in cinemas, with Now You See Me, Ender's Game, All You Need Is Kill and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 all incoming over the next twelve months. However, they're also set to extend their small screen output this fall with the new TV series Sleepy Hollow, and Fox Television has now given us our first look at the upcoming adventure thriller, which you can check out below.
Co-created and executive produced by Kurtzman and Orci, Sleepy Hollow is described as a "modern-day retelling" of Washington Irving's classic 1820 short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The series stars Tom Mision (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) as Ichabod Crane, who wakes up from the throes of death 250 years in the future to find the world on the brink of destruction and »

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

Last season, Fox only picked up two new drama series: the hit thriller "The Following" which was launched midseason, and the instant bomb "The Mob Doctor" which was launched in the fall.
Fox has doubled that amount for the 2013-14 season, but once again they'll only launch one show in the fall. That honor (or curse?) goes to imaginative looking reboot "Sleepy Hollow," while J.J. Abrams' "Almost Human" and Greg Kinnear vehicle "Rake" will be held for midseason and "Gang Related" will be slotted in later.
Here's a rundown of the four new dramas Fox presented to advertisers at its 2013 upfront on May 13 at New York City's Beacon Theater.
"Sleepy Hollow" (Mondays at 9 p.m. Et)
A slick and tantalizing re-imagining of the classic Washington Irving tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman, from "Fringe" producers and "Star Trek Into Darkness" co-writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Tom Mison »
It's not arriving until the fall, but already Fox has provided a behind-the-scenes look at its upcoming new series "Sleepy Hollow" from executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. It's a little action, a little suspense/horror, and a little fun. Check it out, and get to know Ichabod Crane, portrayed by Tom Mison.
"Sleepy Hollow" will air Monday nights on Fox at 9Pm.

On Monday Fox unveiled their primetime slate for the 2013-2014 television season to the national advertising community during its annual Programming Presentation at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. The network announced 5 new comedies, 4 new dramas, a first event series, and an animated comedy from Seth MacFarlane.
Some of today’s most inventive directors working in film have smoothly segued from motion pictures to series TV and their new shows have found a home at Fox. What caught my attention were the sci-fi, fantasy shows bearing the names of Abrams, Shyamalan, Kurtzman and Orci.
Among the network’s lineup is M. Night Shyamalan’s new event series Wayward Pines. Set to premiere in 2014 and based on the best-selling novel, “Pines,” by Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines is an intense, mind-bending thriller in which nothing is what it seems. Also on the Fox schedule is the »

Of course I was excited about these new Fox shows as soon as I learned about their Fringe provenance, but Wait Until You See These Trailers. It’s hard to get a real feel for a show just from the synopsis, but I’m including the new upgraded synopses for each so that you have all the information.
But Oh The Trailers.
