Check Out Andrew Garfield In First Images From Martin Scorsese’s Silence

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Going by description alone, Martin Scorsese’s upcoming priest drama Silence is one of our most anticipated movies of the year. The veteran director never disappoints, and the material he’s working with on the long-in-the-works project is simply too promising to believe he’ll start now. Though Paramount has yet to officially unveil any stills or clips from the film, a wrap party and press conference in Taiwan, where Silence recently finishing shooting, has provided us with some grainy first images of star Andrew Garfield in costume.

Garfield, newly released from his duties as Peter Parker/Spider-Man after Sony’s disappointing returns on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, stats as Father Rodrigues, a 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit who travels to Japan with another man of the cloth in order to get to the bottom of pervasive rumors that Rodrigues’ beloved mentor has abandoned the Church.

The young actor has commented on his attraction to the project, »

Box Office: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Scores Second-Biggest Opening With $187.7 Million

3 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron” scored the second-biggest domestic opening in history this weekend, kicking off summer blockbuster season with a mammoth $187.7 million debut.

Globally, the film is a juggernaut, pulling in an estimated $627 million in 12 days of release. At that pace, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” should pass $1 billion, particularly after it opens in China on May 12.

One record remained tantalizingly out of grasp for Captain America, Iron Man and company, however. Going into the weekend many analysts predicted that “Avengers: Age of Ultron” would top the $207.4 million haul posted in 2012 by the first film in the super-team series. That box office high-water mark will stand… at least until “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” lands in theaters this Christmas.

Part of the issue may have been weaker reviews than the first “Avengers” film, as well as competition from the NBA playoffs, the Kentucky Derby and the hotly anticipated boxing match »

29 April 2015 5:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As the old saying goes, where there's smoke, there's fire. The past little while has seen buzz swirling about Marvel's take on Spider-Man, with the character slated to appear in the imminently filming "Captain America: Civil War," followed by the standalone movie which might be called "Spider-Man: The New Avenger." Now, if the chatter is anything to go by, the studio may have found the actor to be their new webslinger.

Avengers: Age of Ultron breaks records at the UK box office with biggest ever debut for a superhero movie

28 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 24th April to Sunday 26th April 2015…

Avengers: Age of Ultron opened here in the UK this past Thursday, with the latest instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe breaking records with a hefty £18,015,774 weekend – the biggest ever April debut, and the highest opening for a superhero movie. It also surpasses Fifty Shades of Grey (£13.55 million) for the biggest opening weekend of the year so far, and is the biggest UK opening since Skyfall back in 2012.

Despite being knocked from top spot, Fast & Furious 7 added another £1.6 million to leave the action blockbuster closing in on £35 million, but Age of Ultron pretty much sucked the life out of the rest of the chart, with only the Met Opera’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci managing to crack the top ten, claiming fifth with £337,698.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Almost Ended In A Completely Different Way

22 April 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Electro may be the villain that Spider-Man fought the most during 2014.s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but the climatic battle with The Green Goblin was most devastating for him. Although Peter Parker was able to defeat his former friend Harry Osborn, he was unable to save the love of his life, Gwen Stacy, from falling to her death. Mirroring what happened in the comics, the scene was considered by many to be one of the more positive elements on the film. However, that scene originally ended in a different and much more violent way. Set photographer Niko Tavernise posted pictures on Instagram of how the fight between Spider-Man and Green Goblin in the clock tower was originally supposed to go down. In the final cut of the film, after knocking Goblin unconscious, Peter peeled off his mask and cried while holding Gwen.s body. However, in the original version, Goblin »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

Eddie Redmayne May Take The Lead In Upcoming Harry Potter Spin-Off

11 April 2015 5:04 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Scheduled to hit cinemas in November of next year, there has been some movement on Warner Bros.' Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with Variety reporting that Eddie Redmayne is eyed to take the lead role of Newt Scamander, magic zoologist and author of the titular text book that is required reading at Hogwarts. The trade goes on to say that a number of actors are being looked at, including Nicholas Hoult, so there is nothing official at this stage. Having auditioned for roles in The Hobbit and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it's clear that Redmayne is interested in doing a big, franchisable blockbuster to keep his star on the rise, even if he has an Oscar for The Theory of Everything on his mantel piece. If director David Yates (responsible for the last four Harry Potter movies)makes the offer, it will be very »

Stephen King's Dark Tower revived at Sony Pictures, TV spinoff to follow

10 April 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stephen King's The Dark Tower is being revived as a multi-platform television and film project by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The popular literary series has passed through several studios over the last 33 years, with Ron Howard being the most prominent director to have worked on the project.

Warner Bros most recently passed on plans for a film series and television spinoff two years ago, but TheWrap reports that Sony will revive the multi-platform project with production company Media Rights Capital.

The current film version is based on a screenplay from The Da Vinci Code writer Akiva Goldsman and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 scribe Jeff Pinkner.

Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said today: "There are few projects out there that compare with the scope, vision, complex characters and fully drawn world that Stephen King has created with The Dark Tower.

"I am a giant fan. And, as Stephen himself does, we »

Sony and Mrc Teaming to Bring Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' to Theaters and TV

10 April 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Like the Loch Ness Monster, a movie adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower is something we've heard great tales about but have never seen. That could be changing soon though, as Deadline reports Sony and Mrc have partnered to co-finance and distribute a film series based on the novels, with Mrc developing a complementary TV series to run alongside the films. Back in 2012, Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend) was preparing a new draft of the first installment in the proposed series for Warner Bros., and had things worked out, a complementary TV series would have been set up at HBO. However, Warners, like Universal before it, passed on the project, though it seems to have found new life at rival studio Sony. This latest draft of the first film's script is co-written by Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and is based on Goldsman's earlier draft. »

Pucker up, because the 2015 MTV Movie Awards are just a few days away. And what the Best Picture Oscar is to the Academy Awards, the coveted Best Kiss popcorn trophy is to the MTV Movie Awards.

The most anticipated (and not to mention, sexiest) award of them all has some serious contenders this year, including Shailene Woodly and Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), James Franco and Seth Rogen (The Interview), Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and Rose Byrne and Halston Sage (Neighbors).

We won’t find out which smooching duo will join the ranks of MTV Movie Awards history until Sunday, so we decided to honor the previous winners that paved the way for them. From seriously steamy kisses to romantic pecks to hilariously over-the-top make-out sessions, we’ve ranked the best and worst »

Ranking the 2015 MTV Movie Award nominees for Best Kiss

9 April 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The crowning achievement of the MTV Movie Awards is Best Kiss. It's a necessary, telling category. Frankly, a kissing scene is often the most interesting part of a movie. (See: "Talladega Nights," "The Notebook," and "Cruel Intentions," which all won in this category.) How do this year's nominees hold up? We rank them from fifth to first. 5. Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Get More: 2015 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News So it's a cute moment. There's quippy dialogue. Evans is in his chill Eddie Bauer gear and Johansson is commanding and stony. But the idea of kissing in public as a masquerade is the stuff of ancient teen movies and, more recently, "Inception." We already had this nomination in 2011 with Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and that was both funnier and more intense.  4. James Franco and Seth Rogen: "The Interview" Get More: 2015 MTV Movie Awards, »

Dane DeHaan And Mia Goth Will Find A Cure For Wellness With Gore Verbinski

9 April 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There was a time before The Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean when Gore Verbinski was known not as Disney’s go-to director for big-budget bores, but rather as the exciting helmer behind excellent horror remake The Ring. Now, he’s attempting to regain some of that credibility by taking on a small-scale supernatural horror pic at New Regency called A Cure for Wellness, and to aid him in that pursuit, Verbinski is calling on the talents of Kill Your Darlings star Dane DeHaan and on-the-rise actress Mia Goth.

DeHaan will star as a man who is sent to Europe in order to retrieve his boss from a “wellness spa,” only to become trapped in the facility and realize that its staff members have a far more nefarious goal than simply improving the health of their patients.

Goth, meanwhile, is in negotiations to take on the supporting role of »

Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth have joined the cast of A Cure for Wellness.

The pair will both star in Gore Verbinski's new horror film, The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

Goth will play a patient, who is unaware of the spa's malevolent practices.

Revolutionary Road writer Justin Haythe is penning the script for the movie.

Verbinski previously directed horror film The Ring, as well as Rango and the Pirates of the Caribbean series.

DeHaan previously appeared in Chronicle and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, while Goth previously starred in Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac: Vol. II. »
