At least 10 movie productions appear among 145 debtors listed in Relativity’s bankruptcy filing so far. The limited companies’ names mimic titles of the films in question. The movies vary from specialized fare such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s feature directing debut Don Jon to major releases like Mirror Mirror, Relativity’s Snow White story that came out ahead of Universal’s more successful Snow White And The Huntsman back in 2012. Specific creditors are not listed for… »
There’s a moment in the daisy field of Henry Hobson’s Maggie where Maggie (Abigail Breslin) begs her father Wade Vogel (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to please make the pain of ‘the turn’ stop and kill her and all I could think was Yes! please make this painfully slow film stop and if not, please put me out of my misery by killing me first.
Alas, neither of us were that lucky but as the final credits rolled and I awoke from the film’s induced catalepsy, I slowly began to appreciate -despite it’s snail paced everything- just how ballsy this cross-genre debut feature really is.
It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but if you do fancy a challenge, it’s nice to at least go in somewhat prepared for the extremely delicate observation of terminal illness and the emotional toil it inflicts within a family.

Enter Clint Howard, character actor extraordinaire and brother of director Ron Howard. He has a pitch for a movie that is the “biggest, […]

It's been several months since we've heard about anything from the Kristen Stewart-less Snow White And The Huntsman prequel, aptly titled The Hunstman, but it's not exactly a project anyone's clamoring for. While it did garner some interest when Frank Darabont was on-board, he's long since left the project, leaving it in the hands of Cedric Nicolas-Troyan.... Read More »

Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron are just casually walking around in full costume while filming The Huntsman in the U.K. right now. Meanwhile, there's no denying that Chris Hemsworth is insanely sexy as Thor, but he's also sexy in other roles. Case in point: these pictures. Even his unfortunate brown wig can't dissuade us from staring into those baby blues. He are Theron are reprising their roles from 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman, but this time, Hemsworth is the star. Sam Claflin will return as well, along with new cast members Blunt and Jessica Chastain. Take a look at the set pictures here, and don't worry, we'll add any and all Hemsworth pictures that we can find. »
In 2002, Hossein Amini penned the Heath Ledger epic remake The Four Feathers, then passed nine years before reappearing on the scene with screenwriting turns on Drive, Snow White and the Huntsman, and 47 Ronin in rapid succession. Riding the wave of success, he switched gears and made his feature directorial debut with The Two Faces of January, starring the powerhouse trio of Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, and rising star Oscar Isaac. Borrowing heavily from classic Hitchcockian tropes, the slow-burning thriller endeavors to be a location period film of love, intrigue, and danger in the great tradition of To Catch A Thief.

There have been quite a few live-action versions of Prince Charming recently: Sam Claflin in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Chris Pine in “Into the Woods,” Josh Dallas in ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” and Richard Madden in “Cinderella,” to name a few. (Quick note from Captain Obvious: Fairy tale reboots are so in right now.) But the dashing chap has never really been front and center of the cinematic spotlight so long as Cinderella’s been sharing the scenes. Now, though, Disney wants to put the glass slipper shoe on the other foot, so to speak, and let the beau’s side of the story be known. According to Deadline, Disney has firmed up its plans to create a Charming-centric picture, which is said to be a “revisionist take on the fairy tales” we all know and love. Which shouldn’t be too terribly difficult c .. »
Lara Croft fans have been clamouring for another big screen instalment of the Tomb Raider franchise for over a decade now, and according to rumours, MGM and Warner Bros. are looking to enlist a female director for the proposed reboot.
According to Heroic Hollywood, a script by Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) is now out to directors, with the studio apparently seeking a filmmaker in the vein of Michelle McLaren (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad), who was recently attached to Warner Bros. Wonder Woman movie before leaving the project due to creative differences.
Now, while the idea of a female director for Tomb Raider makes complete sense, bear in mind that Heroic Hollywood is quickly replacing Latino-Review as the number one source on the internet for baseless rumour, linkbaiting speculation and fake concept art, so we should probably take this with a healthy pinch of salt. »

Part of me wishes that this wasn’t even news, but there just aren’t enough female directors yet snagging big-budget tentpoles as to make the following seem unremarkable: MGM is rumored to be searching for a woman to reboot its Tomb Raider franchise, revitalizing the series that made a star out of Angelina Jolie and more recently birthed a stellar video game redo from Square Enix.
According to scoopster Umberto Gonzalez, MGM wants a “Michelle MacLaren type” at the helm for the Tomb Raider remake. What that means isn’t exactly clear, but MacLaren first made her mark on the small screen, directing key episodes of prestige series like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Leftovers and Better Call Saul. Warner Bros. hand-picked her to direct its high-profile Wonder Woman stand-alone, but she ultimately departed the project over the good ol’ creative differences and was replaced »

Ron Moody in Mel Brooks' 'The Twelve Chairs.' The 'Doctor Who' that never was. Ron Moody: 'Doctor Who' was biggest professional regret (See previous post: "Ron Moody: From Charles Dickens to Walt Disney – But No Harry Potter.") Ron Moody was featured in about 50 television productions, both in the U.K. and the U.S., from the late 1950s to 2012. These included guest roles in the series The Avengers, Gunsmoke, Starsky and Hutch, Hart to Hart, and Murder She Wrote, in addition to leads in the short-lived U.S. sitcom Nobody's Perfect (1980), starring Moody as a Scotland Yard detective transferred to the San Francisco Police Department, and in the British fantasy Into the Labyrinth (1981), with Moody as the noble sorcerer Rothgo. Throughout the decades, he could also be spotted in several TV movies, among them: David Copperfield (1969). As Uriah Heep in this disappointing all-star showcase distributed theatrically in some countries. »

Hold on to those black, plastic horn headpieces you bought at Disney World, because Maleficent 2 is officially in development. I suppose weirder things have happened, like a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel without Snow White. Nevertheless, the Mouse House isn.t ready to give up its box-office-busting witch. Oh dear, what an awkward situation. The Wrap was the first to report the news and, according to the trade, Angelina Jolie is expected to reprise her role as Maleficent, the goodhearted fairy who turned evil after getting scorned by a childhood friend. Though she hasn.t officially signed on, Disney is confident in her return, considering you can.t have Maleficent 2 and cut out the woman who made her a big-screen sensation. Maleficent debuted in May of last year and told the story of the all-powerful witch from Sleeping Beauty. Growing up as a fairy in the forest as a »
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will no doubt be selling out cinema screen all over the world this December, but lest we forget more Star Wars are coming our way in the coming years, and next year’s first spin-off, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, has been bringing it’s cast together for the last few months. Now, Variety are reporting that Forrest Whitaker will be travelling to a galaxy far, far away, joining other cast members Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman), and Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises). We know pretty much nothing about the movie, other than the fact the events of the movie will chronicle the efforts of a group of resistance fighters to steal the original Death Star plans, so his role is unknown to us at this time.

On-set romances are the stuff of Hollywood tradition. But while we normally only hear about the big stars who fall in love while filming a movie together, there are tons of other couples who originate among the crew or develop between cast and crew. Well, here's one of the cuter production love stories involving two people who are technically both cast and crew at the same time. Stunt performers Dayna Porter and Dane Grant met in Nigeria during the making of Mad Max: Fury Road. She was the double for Charlize Theron, as Imperator Furiosa (she also worked with the actress on Snow White and the Huntsman), and he was the initial double for Tom Hardy's Max Rockatansky, in rehearsals, before Hardy's now-regular man, Jacob Tomuri, showed up and took over. Grant first...

We all know how tough it is to meet people. Getting set up on blind dates, online dating, people will try anything to find that special someone. Sometimes however, you meet people in the last place you expect, like the middle of an apocalyptic wasteland surrounded by murderous zealots trying to kill you. That was the case for a couple of crew members on the set of Mad Max:Fury Road. The Telegraph tells the story of love found in the harsh Namibian desert. Dane Grant was the South African stuntman who was brought in during rehearsals for Fury Road to stand in for Max.s Tom Hardy. Dayna Porter was the native New Zealander stunt double for Charlize Theron, having worked with her before in Snow White and the Huntsman. (Yes, their names are Dane and Dayna, and this is already super cute.) They spent a lot of time »
It should be a far cry from the kind of material Hemsworth is accustomed to (in case you missed it Chris has spent the bulk of his career working on blockbuster action flicks like Thor The Avengers Red Dawn and Snow White and the Huntsman to name a few) but it should also open the door for the chick magnet to flex his comedic chops. We dont get to see much of it but the big brute has jokes believe that »
