Michael Bay Drives To Cosmic Motors

11 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Whether or not Michael Bay ends up directing Transformers 5, high-concept sci-fi vehicles are clearly still a part of his future. He's currently in the process of setting up Cosmic Motors at Warner Bros., a film based on Daniel Simon's book of lavish concept art. Kyle Ward, who wrote Machete Kills and the new Hitman movie Agent 47, has been tasked with creating the screenplay.Ward will also need to come up with a narrative on which to hang it, since Cosmic Motors in book form is more about concept than story. Simon has worked as a car designer for Lamborghini and Bugatti, as well as on projects like Tron: Uprising, Captain America: The First Avenger and Oblivion. His book imagines "spaceships, pods, race cars, giant trains, warships and balloons from various planets of the Galaxion system... from concept to completion" via sketches and 3D modelling.There's already a »

29 August 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Daniel Simon got his first big screen credit for his work as a vehicle designer on Tron: Legacy and ever since, he’s been adding more and more titles to his resume.  And it makes sense the guy’s getting more work.  Have you seen his book Cosmic Motors?  It’s absolutely loaded with incredible vehicle designs that he puts in a fictional realm called Galaxion, a place where futuristic concepts aren’t relegated to artwork, but actually exist. Clearly Michael Bay enjoys doing out-of-this-world things with cars on the big screen, so it should come as no surprise that he’s the one developing the Cosmic Motors movie.  Hit the jump to find out who Bay just recruited to pen the screenplay. According to Variety, Bay and Warner Bros. just hired Kyle Ward, the scribe behind Machete Kills and Agent 47, to write the Cosmic Motors screenplay.  Ward also »

Donnie Darko Producer Brings Us a New Look at the Biblical Apocalypse with The Remaining

26 August 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

As a Christian who is involved in reviewing movies and interviewing actors and filmmakers, I’m always excited to hear about actors who share my faith. Although most critics pan any sort of Bible-based movie, I give them a chance if they fall within certain genres. I’m always on the search for a good faith-oriented horror or sci-fi film that will break down the barrier between “secular” and Christian cinema.

 

One movie that immediately caught my attention as soon as I saw the cover of the graphic novel it’s based on is The Remaining. According to the official description, it revolves around “a group of close friends [who] gather for a wedding. The celebration is shattered by a series of cataclysmic events and enemies foretold by biblical end-times prophecies. The survivors face a horrifying, uncertain future as they scramble for safety, but as their world collapses around them in »

Sin City's Robert Rodriguez "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting ability

24 August 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Rodriguez said that he was "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting skills.

The Sin City director first worked with the musician on Machete Kills, before offering her a cameo in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Rodriguez told E! News: "I told her she had to be in it [Sin City 2]... The camera loves her.

"She's a great performer. She's performed twice for me now and I was blown away by her discipline. She studied acting before she became a singer and you could really tell."

He continued: "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away from us in Austin. She was ready.

"She brought her own wigs! I said, 'We're not going to have time to make a wig for you.' She showed up, we did the scene, she knocked it out of the park and then she was back on tour. »

Film Review: More Risqué ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Doesn’t Dare to Trailblaze Again

22 August 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sex sells, sure, but the film-noir sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” makes you feel dirty if you’re left thinking that’s enough.

Nine years since the visually groundbreaking, avant-garde hit “Sin City,” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s biggest mistake with their next incarnation is replacing the first film’s bloodthirsty impact with too much nudity.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The film is equally violent as it is naked, but we’ve almost become numb to such mutilation and it’s certainly part of this story. These talented filmmakers insult audiences by thinking Eva Green’s rabid libido and willingness to bare it all can outshine the film’s need to be otherwise compelling. She’ll satisfy the horny little boy or girl in you, but leave the mature man or woman in you really are intellectually unsatisfied.

In film and television, Green has clearly made a decision »

Lady Gaga poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

22 August 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coinciding with its U.S. release today, a new character poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has been released online featuring Lady Gaga as Bertha; check it out below, and if you’ve not done so already you can read our ★★★★ review of the film here…

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

A True Desperado: The 10 Best Moments Of Robert Rodriguez’s Career

22 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Sin City: A Dame To Kill For opening today, I feel like now is a good time to look back on Robert Rodriguez’s career while his name is still fresh in our minds!

Alright, no. I’ll be honest. This article has ulterior motives. I’m noticing a weird occurrence as of late - not that many people are all that excited about Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. I don’t know, maybe it’s just the crew I roll with, but Rodriguez’s Sin City sequel is arriving with very little excitement, and remembering back on the original, I’m not really sure why. It’s flashy, immersive, pulpy noir material that doesn’t quite reinvent the genre, but it does offer a visually striking take on Frank Miller’s heralded source material.

Another thing I don’t get is all the strange negativity I hear about Robert Rodriguez, »

Lady Gaga Wigged Out While Making the Sin City Sequel

21 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

After working with Lady Gaga on Machete Kills, director Robert Rodriguez knew she would have to be his new Sin City sequel. "I told her she had to be in it," Rodriguez told me earlier this week at the movie's Hollywood premiere. "But we needed to find a role small enough that she could do while she was on tour. And then this one popped up." He's referring to Gaga's role as a waitress in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For (in theaters tomorrow). We won't give it all away, but she shares some screen time with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. "We were shooting and it was just a couple of days away," Rodriguez said. "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away »

Forecast: Long Delay Will Slay 'Sin City' Sequel This Weekend

20 August 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: If I Stay earned an estimated $1.1 million from late Thursday shows beginning at 7 p.m. An estimate for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is not currently available.Forecast: Over nine years after Sin City opened to $29.8 million, a sequel finally arrives in theaters on Friday. As is the case with most long-wait sequels, A Dame to Kill For should earn substantially less than its predecessor. For the weekend, it will likely wind up in second place behind young-adult adaptation If I Stay.If Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had reached theaters in close proximity to the original, it would be in much better shape right now. With its stark black-and-white cinematography and animated backgrounds, the original Sin City was the first movie that truly looked like a graphic novel come to life. It received positive reviews (78 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and strong responses »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For movie review: meaner streets

20 August 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An unnecessary sequel that’s empty and arduous, little more than vignettes on vengeance and cruel parades of sociopathic power performed as gleefully ultraviolent shadowplays. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): didn’t see a need for a second

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s the nihilism of Sin City. A place where wounded men have to remind themselves to “never let the monster out,” and a woman can “makes slaves of men,” and even “good men” are turned on by a woman’s tale of rape (which she invented, of course, because this is Sin City, where you can’t trust a dame). A place where men are nothing but how they can use their rage and women are nothing but how they can use their bodies.

And that’s none of it nice. »
