Dracula Untold sees Luke Evans taking his well-deserved lead role in Universal’s big screen re-launch of the most infamous of all vampires, after building up a fine body of work over the course of several years that’s encompassed two of the biggest cinematic franchises to date in two thirds of The Hobbit trilogy and Fast & Furious 6.
In a relatively short time he’s already played two Greek gods, as both Apollo and Zeus in Clash Of The Titans and Immortals respectively, worked with Ridley Scott on Robin Hood, made a standout of his »
Dracula Untold is all about Vlad’s (Luke Evans) choice to become a vampire so that he can defend his people against Mehmet’s (Dominic Cooper) threat, but one of the main reasons he makes that decision at all is due to his undying love for his wife, Mirena (Sarah Gadon). Clearly Dracula Untold will be loaded with fangs, bats and epic battles, but it’s also a movie rooted in romance and family. Hit the jump to find out more about Mirena’s effect on Vlad in a brand new Dracula Untold featurette and if you’d like even more information on the character, click here to check out my interview with Gadon from our set visit. Dracula Untold hits theaters in 2D and IMAX on October 17th and also stars Charles Dance, Noah Huntley and Art Parkinson. Here’s the synopsis for Dracula Untold: Almost an entire »

Back in July during the San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. gave fans in attendance in Hall H a sneak peek at 2016’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman by showcasing footage from the film, along with promotional images of Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess and Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight. We’ve seen high-resolution, official versions of the character images for Superman and Wonder Woman, but so far Batman has been kept under wraps. Well, thanks to BatmanvSuperman2016 on Instagram (via Cbm), we now have a low-quality look at The Dark Knight in what appears to be a blue and grey Batsuit. Take a look…
To be totally honest, apart from the colouring it’s not much better than the snap that made its way online during Sdcc, so let’s hope we get an official release soon…

Back in August a report from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teased the possibility of anti-Superman protests in the film, and it looks like an eagle-eyed fan has just confirmed it. Twitter user Tim Reinmann spotted protestors on the set of Batman V Superman, holding up signs like “Thanks For The ‘Help’,” “SuperDEATH,” and “When Invasion Becomes Reality Revolt Becomes Duty!”
It looks like Superman’s big battle with Zod at the end of Man of Steel will bring more consequences than just property damage, and the anti-Superman sensibilities sure will help Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) in his fight against his soon-to-be arch-nemesis.
Check out the photos below, and let us know your thoughts about the film containing anti-Superman protests in the comments…

Luke Evans has discussed the challenges of maintaining an athletic body in order to land blockbuster roles.
The Welsh actor, who is the star of vampire epic Dracula Untold, told Men's Health that he needs to work extremely hard to achieve the results he wants.
"The general idea when I started six years ago was to work as much as possible, so I did five or six films in a year," he said. "So many. But I needed to get the experience and I needed to learn how to act in front of a camera, which I'd never done before."
"I wouldn't say being in a film with The Rock was motivating. Terrifying would be a more accurate description," he said. "You look at this guy and think, »
With Ben Affleck currently on the promotional rounds for David Fincher’s Gone Girl, we can expect the actor to be inundated with questions about his upcoming role as The Dark Knight in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the Boston Globe has already managed to grab a few of his thoughts about the big DC ensemble…
“I can tell you that I’m very excited and it’s very exciting. I can tell you that in my entire career, I haven’t had so many people come up to me and say how much they’re looking forward to the movie. Naturally, that’s a lot of pressure, but I love the script, I love the director, I love the studio. I’m very much looking forward to it, but it’s two years away so it probably doesn’t bear talking about anymore.”
So, based on those comments, »

Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy has reached another box office milestone this weekend, overtaking the domestic box office hauls of 2008’s Iron Man ($318.3 million) as well as fellow franchise starters Transformers ($319.1 million) and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. ($317.6 million) and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ($314.2 million) with $319.2 million to date.
Globally, Guardians has pulled in $644.3 million, leaving it just half a million short of Thor: The Dark World’s $644.8 million, which would make it the fourth-highest grossing instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With a Chinese release still to come on October 10th, there’s still a good chance that Guardians will hit the $700 million mark, which would make it the fourth superhero movie of the year to do so after Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

As filming continues on Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it looks like we may have had our first look at Wayne Manor as it will appear in the DC Cinematic Universe… and if it is, then it’s very different to previous Wayne Manors we’ve seen on screen. Batman-News has posted a selection of images showing the crew setting up at the abandoned Ransom Gillis House in Detroit, while a set video has arrived online showing Gotham City Police arriving at the mansion. Check them out…

Like a lot of iconic movie monsters, Dracula has had a rough time of it over recent years, with one of his most recent live-action adaptations – the NBC television series which starred Jonathan Rhys Meyers – lasting only a single season before being cancelled due to low ratings and a tepid critical response. Perhaps then it’s for the best that Dracula Untold is taking the vampire back to basics as it strives to deliver a very different take on his early years. In this movie, the focus will be on Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) as he strikes a deal a deal with dark forces in order to protect his family and protect his homeland. To learn more about the movie, watch the featurette below! Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, Immortals) stars in Dracula Untold, the origin story of the man who became Dracula.

We've been all abuzz about True Detective this week, following the news that Colin Farrell will definitely star and Vince Vaughn has also been confirmed. There are still a lot of casting rumors flying around out there, but there are some details we know for sure - mostly the ones disclosed by creator Nic Pizzolatto and HBO. Let's parse out what we know about season two so far, including who Farrell and Vaughn will play! We have a very loose plot line. Though Pizzolatto suggested months ago that a murder might not be at the center of this season, HBO has confirmed the series tagline: "Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder." Casting news is coming in now. So far, Vince Vaughn (who we fully support) and Colin Farrell have been confirmed for season two, but everyone else has just been rumored. »
Superheroes may rule Hollywood these days, but there are some franchises that have achieved great success despite not having men (or women) in tights. Chief among them is Fast and Furious, which has become extremely popular in the last few years. After changing up the series formula with 2011′s Fast Five (a critical hit that grossed $209.8 million), the franchise continued its hot streak last year with Fast & Furious 6 – the highest-grossing installment to date.

Vin Diesel’s love of social media is a genius marketing tool that studios are clearly happy for him to indulge in. Yesterday, the actor, who’s currently at work filming The Last Witch Hunter, posted more photos from that shoot. With the man himself decked out in a classy beard. He’s now taken to his Facebook again today, for what he’s dubbed ‘Toretto Tuesday” – named after his Fast character, Dom Toretto – to deliver new pics from the set of Fast & Furious 7. You can check them out below.
Production on the anticipated sequel to last year’s Fast & Furious 6 was halted last year following the tragic death of leading man Paul Walker. With a troubled restart to what was no doubt a very difficult set, the returning cast and crew completed the shoot in early July.

Back in July 2013, Man of Steel star Harry Lennix took to the stage at the San Diego Comic-Con International where he quoted lines from Frank Miller’s seminal comic book Batman: The Dark Knight Returns as part of the official announcement that Zack Snyder would be bringing the Man of Steel and The Dark Knight together for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, during an interview with Moviefone, Lennix has offered up a few words on the DC Comics ensemble, stating that fans of The Dark Knight Returns will be “well pleased” by the “historic event”.
“Anybody who’s a fan of the ’86 graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, I think will be well pleased by [Batman v Superman],” says Lennix, who will reprise the role of General Swanwick in the team-up. “This is a historic event. Clearly, Zack Snyder is on the cutting edge of directing movies of this scope and scale. »

Fans of Marvel will have been excitedly anticipating the Agent Carter TV series for a while now.
As we edge closer to seeing the One Shot-adaptation in all its televised glory, the core cast of the show is seemingly almost complete.
We’ve heard of a new face confirmed to join proceedings this morning – Shea Whigham. His role has been described as the male lead, but whether this means he will be a colleague, enemy or love interest (or all three) to Peggy Carter remains to be seen.
Whigham should be recognisable to lots of folk out there, seeing as he held the long-term role of Eli in Boardwalk Empire, as well as popping up recurringly in True Detective and appearing on the big screen in Non-Stop, The Wolf Of Wall Street »
A few months after Universal announced a restructure of its international operations that intended to see a then-unnamed head of international theatrical operations located in Los Angeles, the studio has decided to keep the point person for overseas in London. Duncan Clark, who has been President of Distribution for Universal Pictures International since June 2011, will expand his role to lead the international team from his current perch in the British capital.
The announcement regarding Clark, who was named International Distributor of the Year at CineEurope in June, was made at an internal worldwide summit of Universal marketing and distribution execs in L.A. this morning (read the memo below). The move follows closely on the heels of Friday’s appointment of Universal Evp Worldwide Acquisitions Peter Kujawski to the newly created position of Director of Universal Pictures International Productions. It also follows Josh Goldstine’s May promotion to President of Worldwide Marketing. »

While Universal announced plans, in May, to move its international leadership to Los Angeles, it’s since reconsidered after naming Peter Kujawski managing director, Universal Pictures International Production, and expanding Josh Goldstine to oversee all of Universal’s marketing efforts around the world. Both are based in Los Angeles.
Clark has served as president of distribution, Upi since 2011, and now expands some of his duties that had been previously managed by David Kosse, who left Upi in August to head the U.K.’s Film4. Kosse had been president, international, Universal Pictures.
Clark’s appointment comes after re-upping with the studio in April, and after Universal crossed the $2 billion mark at the international box office for the first time in 2013, driven by “Fast & Furious 6, »

"I'm doing the second series. I'm so excited," Colin Farrell told Sunday World, confirming rumors he would be starring in the second season of HBO's "True Detective", which, I guess, makes him the first official cast member for the show's sophomore session. That is, other than Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) who will be directing at least two episodes. Farrell also confirmed the second season will be eight episodes, just as the first, and will take "around four or five months to shoot." "I know very little about it," Farrell added, "but we're shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids." There are only a few details available concerning the plot, which is said to involve a trio of law enforcement officers investigating a murder that appears to be tied to the construction of a high-speed »
