The Actor That’ll Play Ares In Wonder Woman Has Been Revealed

DC Comics’ God of War, Ares, has been rumored to be the villain of the Wonder Woman movie since before director Patty Jenkins even began shooting, and thanks to a recent magazine article and some photos of a few toys, it would now finally seem to be confirmed. Though we know Ares will appear, we haven’t really given much thought to the actor that would be stepping into the role, as most fans had assumed the character would be a fully CG creation. However, some new information has now revealed that a familiar face will indeed bring life to the powerful baddie.

According to sources close to the project, Ares will be played via a mixture of CGI and practical effects by none other than David Thewlis. Even if you’re not familiar with the name, you’ll almost certainly have seen the British actor in the Harry Potter

‘I.T.’ Exclusive Clip: Pierce Brosnan Never Loses His Cool In New Action Thriller
Actor Pierce Brosnan has had a busy year so far. He previously starred in the dark thriller “Urge” as a mysterious nightclub owner who introduces his friends to a new designer drug and drags them into a deadly trap. Now, he stars in another action thriller “I.T.” as Mike Regan, a successful, self-made man with a state-of-the-art “smart home,” but when his I.T. consultant Ed (James Frecheville) starts stalking his daughter and threatening his entire life, he’s drawn into a complex cat-and-mouse game where the normal rules don’t apply. The film also stars Anna Friel (“Pushing Daisies”), Stefanie Scott (“Flipped”), and Michael Nyqvist (“John Wick”). Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

‘Simon Killer’ Helmer Antonio Campos To Direct ‘Omen’ Prequel

"The Omen" franchise hasn't had the best run of luck. The 1976 horror classic spawned three sequels, including one that was made-for-tv, and none of them were well received, nor was the 2006 remake starring Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles. Most recently, the property has been brought to the small screen with the A&E series "Damian," but the big bucks are at the movies. So another attempt will be made to revive the horror brand, but we do have some optimism thanks to the choice of director.

'Agent Carter' season 2 kicks off with suspense, wastes no time connecting to Doctor Strange

'Agent Carter' season 2 kicks off with suspense, wastes no time connecting to Doctor Strange
If I could describe “Marvel’s Agent Carter” to someone who has never seen the show, this is what I would say: If you’re a fan of intrigue, mystery, murder, mayhem, secret societies, and fast talking foreign agents, then “Agent Carter” is for you. While it is directly connected to the comic book world of Marvel and a slew of Marvel films like “Captain America” and “The Avengers”, it’s also a fantastic serial mystery show that will satisfy the tastes of any armchair detective looking to test their powers of deduction. Season two begins with a robbery and a double cross -- Russian assassin Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan, “White Collar”) is holding up a bank to steal a silver lapel pin from the safety deposit box of a secret society. Her heist is interrupted when our heroine, Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, “Captain America: The First Avenger”) busts

Lisa Kudrow in The Comeback, which she announced will be returning for a third season.

John Singleton is poised to be the next filmmaker to make the leap to television, as FX has picked up the pilot for Snowfall, a show co-created by Singleton. The press release had this summary of the series.

Los Angeles 1981. A storm is coming and its name is cocaine. Snowfall is a one-hour drama set against the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it. The story follows three characters on a violent collision course: Franklin Saint, young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata, a Mexican wrestler turned gangster in search of his American dream; and Logan Miller, a prominent family’s “black sheep” desperate to escape his father’s shadow.

Singleton will also direct the pilot.

'I.T.' Starring Pierce Brosnan Gets 'Die Hard 5' Director
Director John Moore (A Good Day to Die Hard) has signed on to direct the thriller I.T., which has Pierce Brosnan attached to star.

We first reported on this project back in October 2013, when Pierce Brosnan signed on to play a successful book publisher whose friendship with a young I.T. consultant goes awry. The publisher soon finds his life being turned upside down, as his former friend begins threatening everything and everyone close to him.

William Wisher Jr. (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Abyss, Live Free or Die Hard) has signed on to rewrite the original script by Daniel Kay, and he will also serve as co-executive producer. Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores are producing through their Voltage Pictures company, alongside Friendly Films' David T. Friendly and Pierce Brosnan's producing partner Beau St. Clair. No production schedule was given, but Voltage will be selling the project

A Second "The Omen" Reboot In The Works

20th Century Fox and Platinum Dunes are teaming again for a second reboot of 1976 horror classic "The Omen" which is in very early stages of development.

No filmmakers have been attached at this time. Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles starred in the John Moore-directed 2006 remake.

The news comes a month after it was revealed that Lifetime is developing a TV series adaptation of the original movie, with former "Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara writing the pilot script and executive producing.

That series essentially ignores the "Omen" sequels, opting to explore a now adult Damien Thorn who is haunted by his turbulent past and coming to grips with the fact that he is actually the Antichrist.

Reboot of the remake of The Omen is coming from 20th Century Fox

  • JoBlo
Despite being rebooted less than 10 years ago and with an upcoming television series in development, 20th Century Fox has decided that we need a new take on The Omen and will be rebooting the acclaimed horror series. Bloody Disgusting broke the news regarding the reboot that will be a co-production between Fox and Platinum Dunes. While the 2006 version from director John Moore did gross over $100 million, many disliked that it was essentially a carbon copy of the original film with minor...

Rosemary's Baby Review: Fun Times with the Devil and the French

Rosemary's Baby Review: Fun Times with the Devil and the French
Imagine that you are a young woman, married, ready to start a family. Imagine that you become pregnant, and that you then start to suspect that the infant you are carrying is fathered by Satan, or at least in danger of being handed over to him post-birth in a hellish variation on daycare. Imagine, too, that everyone you thought was caring for you through the pregnancy was actually on Team Satan, and that -Oh. You've heard this before. The chief challenge to NBC's reboot of Rosemary's Baby, the famous suspense novel that became the classic 1968 movie starring Mia Farrow, is

TV Review: ‘Rosemary’s Baby’

It’s been nearly two generations since Roman Polanski’s “Rosemary’s Baby” creeped-out moviegoers (while being the stuff of several juicy chapters on celebrity gossip), making a redo more than logical. Into the breach toddles NBC’s four-hour miniseries, an old-fashioned May sweeps come-on that awkwardly puts four days between its two parts. Steeped in gore but deprived of atmosphere, this update on the Satanic classic suffers from its contemporary setting and attendant improvements in obstetrics, while feeling closer in tone to a remake of “The Omen” than of its namesake. Give the network credit for a promotable title and star in Zoe Saldana, but beyond that, well, the Devil’s in the details.

While comparisons to the earlier movie are largely a waste of time, there are two fundamental problems here with the central roles: Mia Farrow’s title character seemed fragile and waif-like, while John Cassavetes — whose

The HeyUGuys Interview: Composer Henry Jackman talks Captain Phillips, Epic Themes & more

  • HeyUGuys
Last week we had the pleasure of chatting with film composer Henry Jackman, whose body of work stretches from Monsters vs. Aliens to apocalyptic comedy This is the End. More recently, the musician has completed work on upcoming Marvel movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier – and you can read what he had to say about that highly anticipated film here – but the focus of our chat was his work on Sony Pictures’ BAFTA winning / Oscar nominated Captain Phillips, for which the composer himself was BAFTA nominated.

Jackman goes into detail on why self-discipline was paramount for the project, in addition to scoring epic superhero themes and what happens to music which doesn’t make it into the film.If you haven’t already, you can click here for your chance to win a copy or click here to buy one!

Top 5 Cinema Antichrist Films

The devil. He does have a way of showing up at the worst possible time and throwing a wrench into even the best laid plans. In celebration of the release of Devil's Due on January 17th, we bring you our Top 5 Antichrist Films.

For honorable mentions we've got to include Michael Langdon (spawn of Tate and Vivien) from "American Horror Story: Murder House," the original season. Of course Hellboy holds at least some claim to the throne as well.

Research gave us the unforgettable name of Randall Flagg, who appears across many of the works of Stephen King as another possible antichrist. But the most amusing has to be Alan Moore's depiction of Harry Potter (although never named outright, it's quite clear whom he's referring to) in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comic as the true son of Satan (click here if you're unfamiliar with the reference).
