New Line is building an impressive cast for their upcoming thriller Meg. Action icon Jason Statham is set to star alongside Jessica McNamee, Bingbing Fan and the most recent casting addition, Ruby Rose, who came aboard earlier this month. Today we have word that The Office alum Rainn Wilson is coming aboard in a very important role.
The story will center on Jason Statham's character, a former Naval captain and expert diver. He is recruited to undertake a deep-sea mission rescue off the coast of China, where he must save a couple of scientists who find themselves under attack from a threat more terrifying than any monster. Deadline reports that Rainn Wilson is playing Jack Morris, the tech billionaire who funds an underwater observation program that unknowingly unleashes the giant shark known as the Carcharodon megalodon, which is said to be a 70-foot, 40-ton prehistoric cousin of the great white shark. »

There were two White House invasion thrillers released in 2013: Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down. Out of the two, White House Down seemed like the stronger bet at the box office with leads like Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx and a director, Roland Emerich, who is known for blockbusters. Alas, Olympus Has Fallen came out three months earlier, earned more money, was arguably the better film, and got a sequel in London Has Fallen.
I am a fan of Olympus Has Fallen and was intrigued by the series shifting over to London, so much so that I checked this movie out in theaters (something that not a lot of people did). Despite the harshly negative reviews, I must say I enjoy London Has Fallen quite a bit. Is it the next Die Hard or hard-r action classic? Absolutely not; the film has a thin plot, one-dimensional characters, and generic villains. »

Nearly four months after action icon Jason Statham signed on to fight a prehistoric shark in the upcoming Warner Bros. thriller Meg, the rest of the cast is starting to come together. Today we have word that Jessica McNamee (Sirens) has come aboard as the female lead, with Chinese actress Bingbing Fan signing on as well. Unfortunately, no details have been given about their characters at this time.
Eli Roth was attached to direct Meg before he dropped out back in March, with Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure) immediately coming aboard to replace him. Variety reports that Warner Bros. has set a March 2, 2018 release date for Meg, putting it up against an untitled Fox/Marvel movie. Meg will also debut one week after Legendary's Pacific Rim 2 on February 23, 2018 and one week before Disney's Wreck-It Ralph 2.
On July 31st, Syfy will unleash Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, picking up five years after we last saw Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) battling the titular forces of nature, and with the story heading to Las Vegas this time around, rest assured that all bets are off.
Daily Dead recently caught up with Sharknado 4 director Anthony Ferrante and scream queen Caroline Williams, who has a role in the latest sequel, to hear more about what fans can expect from The 4th Awakens and how Ferrante was able to pay homage to several of his favorite horror movies in this latest installment, including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2, of course.
Anthony, you’ve been with Sharknado since the beginning and here you are, back for a fourth film. Can you start off by talking about what’s new for The 4th Awakens?

A Lakeshore Entertainment film, Underworld: Blood Wars stars Beckinsale back in her role as the highly skilled vampire Selene, with Theo James once again playing David and Charles Dance returning as the vampire elder Thomas. Bradley James (Damien, iZombie) also plays a key role in the fifth Underworld film, which is directed by Anna Foerster from a screenplay by Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter, Priest):
"Theo James (The Divergent Series) returns as Selene’s ally David, reprising the role he played in Underworld: Awakening. British actors Tobias Menzies (“Outlander”, “Rome”) and Lara Pulver (“Sherlock”) take on the respective roles »

The cast of Sony and Marvel's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" just keeps on growing with three more names joining the roster - Garcelle Beauvais ("White House Down"), Tiffany Espensen ("Kirby Buckets") and the legendary Tyne Daly ("Cagney and Lacey").
As usual, all three roles are being kept under wraps. Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Abraham Attah, Zendaya, Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi, Tony Revolori, Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, Martin Starr and Logan Marshall-Green also star in the film which is currently in production.
That isn't the only casting announcement made today. Another is that Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes," "Merlin") is set to star in the currently shooting "Transformers: The Last Knight". Specifics of his role in the Michael Bay-directed effort have not been disclosed.

Once on course to scurry into theaters in time for October 14, 2016, the horror sequel (franchise revival?) has now been delayed until January 6, 2017.
Beckinsale is in line to return as the famed Vampire Death Dealer for the franchise’s fifth installment, rubbing shoulders with Divergent breakout Theo James as they navigate the historic battle between vampires and werewolves. Last time we saw the actress take point as the series’ badass lead she had reached the ripe old age of 632. That was Underworld: Awakening in 2012, though Screen Gems will surely be aiming for a more effective sequel in time for 2017.

Back in April, Screen Gems released the first teaser poster for Underworld Blood Wars, although it didn't featuring returning star Kate Beckinsale or any of the other cast members. Since the release date had already been set for October 14, most assumed that the first trailer was just around the corner, but the studio still hasn't released any footage as of yet. Today we found out why, with Screen Gems officially pushing the movie from October 14, 2016 to January 6, 2017.
Variety reported on the release date shift, but there was no reason given for why the date was pushed into 2017. In its new date on January 6, 2017, Underworld 5 will be going up against The Weinstein Company's Amityville: The Awakening, starring Bella Thorne and Universal Pictures' Mena, starring Tom Cruise. The first weekend of January is typically quite slow at the box office, but that could change next year, with three high-profile projects hitting theaters. »
Does Spider-Man: Homecoming have the biggest cast ever seen in a comic book movie? Probably not, but the trades know that Marvel + Spider-Man = clicks, so they're reporting on every single addition no matter how big or small. While their roles are predictably being kept a secret, Tiffany Espensen and Garcelle Beauvais are the latest actresses to board the highly anticipated (and extremely busy) reboot. Espensen is a relative unknown who currently stars in Disney Xd's Kirby Buckets. She also appeared in Monsterville: The Cabinet of Souls. Beauvais meanwhile is best known for roles in The Jamie Foxx Show and NYPD Blue. Other big and small screen credits include Franklin & Bash and White House Down. As great as all these casting additions may be, the one that the vast majority of fans want to see still hasn't happened, and that's someone to play J. Jonah Jameson. At this stage, it's unclear »
Independence Day: Resurgence, 2016.
Directed by Roland Emmerich.
Starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, William Fichtner, Jessie T. Usher, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Brent Spiner, Joey King, Sela Ward, Vivica A. Fox, Angelababy, Nicolas Wright, Travis Tope, Judd Hirsch, and Deobia Opare.
Two decades after the first Independence Day invasion, Earth is faced with a new extra-Solar threat. But will mankind’s new space defenses be enough?
Just to throw it out there, I am not really a fan of Roland Emmerich and his style of Hollywood blockbuster filmmaking, which is to basically abandon the plot and blow up every single damn thing in sight, regardless of if it is done in any sort of creative fashion at all. Towering buildings? They’re all coming down. Oceans? They’re getting swallowed up, and probably by the aforementioned towering buildings that are coming down one after the other. Landmarks? Destroy »

A spluttering opening weekend makes Independence Day 2 the latest sequel to underperform in 2016. Ryan wonders what's going on...
By and large, critics didn't really like Independence Day: Resurgence. But then again, they didn't much care for 2012. Or The Day After Tomorrow. Or White House Down. Or pretty much any of the big, glossy entertainments director Roland Emmerich has brought us over the course of his long career. As Emmerich recently said himself, "If you went by the critics, I shouldn't make movies."
But as Michael Bay knows only too well, critical notices don't sell tickets, and Emmerich's films reliably sell at the box office. Away from the smaller-scale passion projects like Anonymous and Stonewall, Emmerich's effects-led disaster-adventure movies have made millions, even when their aggregate scores on Rotten Tomatoes have struggled to pass the 50 percent mark. So what's going on with Independence Day: Resurgence? Domestically, the invasion »
Review by Stephen Tronicek
Roland Emmerich. This guy has been working his butt off making predominantly intense and pretty good fare out of screenplays that were either flat-out bad or at least flawed in a way that actually mattered. The Day After Tomorrow, 2012and White House Down are all bad screenplays full of unsubtle and sometimes offensive stereotypes and material, but all move over into the realm of fun, at least because Emmerich is too talented of a director to let us criticize them. He knows what he’s doing and intelligently plays on the emotions instead of bombarding them. This is the case with Independence Day: Resurgence.
Resurgence picks up twenty years after the first Independence Day and follows many of the same characters as they, yet again, attempt to stop and survive an alien invasion. The plotting on display here is sloppy and doesn’t feel quite as »

Fresh from destroying the world again with Independence Day: Resurgence, Roland Emmerich will be at it once more with next project Moonfall, with Deadline reporting that Universal has snapped up his spec script for a seven-figure sum.
Written by Emmerich, his regular collaborator and destroyer of worlds Harald Kloser, and Spencer Cohen (Extinction), Moonfall “is best described as Emmerich’s 2012 mashed together with Close Encounters of the Third Kind, following an unlikely band of misfits who must unite to save humanity when the moon falls out of orbit and hurtles towards earth.”
In addition to co-writing, Emmerich will direct the film and produce with Kloser, marking their seventh film together after The Day After Tomorrow, 10,000 BC, 2012, Anonymous, White House Down and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Sony Pictures was also in the running for the pic, which Emmerich will direct as well as produce with Kloser.
“Moonfall” is about a group of people who must save the earth when, as the title would imply, the moon falls out of orbit and hurdles toward earth.
With “Moonfall,” Emmerich stays in his wheelhouse of directing science fiction epics. “Independence Day: Resurgence” has been forecast for an opening weekend of $50 million at 4,068 locations. The original opened two decades ago with a then-massive $50 million domestically on its way to a $306 million U. »

The latest batch of photos from the Atlanta set of Spider-Man: Homecoming have offered a first look at some of the many supporting stars of the much-anticipated Marvel reboot. As students and faculty of Peter Parker’s Midtown School of Science and Technology, stars Laurra Harrier, Kenneth Choi, Martin Starr, and Abraham Attah were spotted on the set. Judging by these images alone, it seems Martin Starr is playing a teacher in Homecoming, while Laurra Harrier and Abraham Attah have roles within Tom Holland’s Peter Parker’s group of friends. And it was previously reported Kenneth Choi will be playing the principal. What’s more interesting about these photos is that they may reveal yet another addition to the ever-growing ensemble cast. Seen recently in White House Down as the First Lady, actress Garcelle Beauvais appears to be walking beside Laurra Harrier in one pic indicating she, too, has a role in Spider-Man: Homecoming. »
Dueling film projects are nothing new in Hollywood. It happened with Armageddon and Deep Impact, White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen, and I've lost count of how many Robin Hood movies are currently in the works. Now THR is reporting that Sony and Paramount are both developing biopics about acclaimed mystery author Agatha Christie. According to the site, Sony is wooing Alicia Vikander to play a... Read More »

Released in 1996, Independence Day marked something of a crossroads in the evolution of summer movies. Its ensemble cast and city-wide destruction anticipated the 21st century wave of effects-driven blockbusters: it’s possible to see elements of Independence Day in Michael Bay’s Transformers movies, Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, Marvel’s Avengers and DC-Warner’s Man Of Steel.
At the same time, Independence Day was also one of the last major Hollywood movies to make extensive use of miniature effects, particularly in the sequences where our planet’s landmarks are reduced to rubble. Director Roland Emmerich’s next film, 1998’s Godzilla, made overwhelming use of CGI to generate its 400 or so effects shots.
It’s taken 20 years for Emmerich to make an Independence Day sequel, and »
