'24: Legacy' Casts 'Beowulf' Star Ashley Thomas in the Lead
With two key roles already secured, Fox is continuing to round out its cast for the reboot 24: Legacy. Deadline reports that Ashley Thomas has signed on for a third lead role in the new series, which will be a complete reboot that doesn't feature the iconic 24 character Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland. Ashley Thomas is playing Isaac Carter, the older brother of the series' main lead, Aaron Carter, played by Corey Antonio Hawkins.

This report reveals that Isaac and Aaron are not on good terms, with a bitter past that includes Aaron marrying Isaac's former girlfriend Nicole (Anna Diop). It was previously reported that Aaron grew up in a rough neighborhood and had a troubled childhood, which he managed to escape by joining the Army Rangers.

Tr-8R Stormtrooper's True Identity Confirmed in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Tr-8R Stormtrooper's True Identity Confirmed in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is on the verge of entering its fourth weekend in theaters, and a lot of fans are ready to watch it again. If only to see one of the film's breakout characters a second, third or fourth time. While Gwendoline Christie's Captain Phasma was supposed to be the next Boba Fett, that distinction was actually earned by a Z-6 baton wielding Stormtrooper who calls Finn out as a traitor before engaging in a baton-lightsaber battle on the grounds of Maz Kanata'a Castle. He has since been dubbed Tr-8R, and set off a firestorm of memes around the Internet these past couple of weeks. Earlier this week, we learned more about Tr-8R's backstory. And now, LucasFilm has confirmed the true identity of the First Order's most loyal soldier.

Tr-8R's official name is Nines. He earned that nickname from his Stormtrooper code Fn-

Exploring Maurice Pialat's Unknown Television Series "La maison des bois"

  • MUBI
Maurice Pialat’s La maison des bois, playing in New York this weekend at the Museum of the Moving Image's retrospective on the director, consists of seven episodes each about an hour long. The series follows Hervé (Hervé Levy), a young boy living in a “house in the woods” with foster parents Albert (Pierre Doris) and Jeanne (Jacqueline Dufranne), and is set during WWII. Hervé hangs out, gets into trouble, goes to school. His father (Paul Crauchet) is in the army; his mother left them before the film’s events. The story overlaps in many ways with Pialat’s previous film, L’enfance nue, to the point where it’s easy to assume that Pialat was tapping the same autobiographical well for both projects. Maison, however, is looser and more expansive than usual for Pialat, and consequently more direct about his concerns. While there’s a great deal of detail in any Pialat work,

How 'Follow That Bird,' The First 'Sesame Street' Film, Became a Beloved Classic After Nose-Diving at the Box Office

How 'Follow That Bird,' The First 'Sesame Street' Film, Became a Beloved Classic After Nose-Diving at the Box Office
Read More: The Man Inside the Bird: Caroll Spinney and Filmmakers Look Back on 45 Years of 'Sesame Street' 1985 was a good year to be a kid at the multiplex. The year’s biggest performer was "Back to the Future" — which earned over $210 million at the box office and is still a universally beloved franchise-starter, a tough trick that’s even harder to pull off these days — a time-traveling adventure film that came complete with a PG-rating, all the better to telegraph exactly who its audience was (basically, everyone). "Back to the Future" wasn’t a "kids movie" in the traditional sense, but it shaped millions of young moviegoers when it debuted in the summer of ’85, sealing its place as a perennial favorite for lots of children of the eighties. Elsewhere, "The Goonies," "The Breakfast Club," "Teen Wolf" and re-issues of both "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" and the animated "101 Dalmatians" all.

Criterion Collection: Eraserhead | Blu-ray Review

There was a time, not very long ago, when obtaining a decent copy of David Lynch’s first masterpiece, Eraserhead, was problematic. Selected in 2004 for preservation in the National Film Registry, nearly four decades of overriding nearly every other piece of flotsam and jetsam comprising the cult classic continuum, one of the most exquisite directorial debuts of all time gets a lavish Criterion Collection treatment. A film whose aural devices equal its bizarre and unforgettable visuals, outside of a theatrical screening, it’s the definitive way to experience this dream of dark and troubling things.

To outline the narrative of Eraserhead feels rather reductive since the film is a visual and auditory experience that requires first hand exposure. But, basically, it’s about a guy named Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) who is forced to marry a neurotic girlfriend, Mary X (Charlotte Stewart) because she gave birth to a creature/baby he impregnated her with.

How I Shot That (Laff Edition): Shooting on Sesame Street for 'I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story'
Documentary filmmakers Dave Lamattina and Chad Walker like to diversify their fields of expertise and investigation. After capturing the life of Mls star Kei Kamara as he returned to his home of Sierra Leon to play for his national team in "Kei," the duo have moved on to something completely different. Their new film "I Am Big Bird: The Carroll Spinney Story" explores behind the scenes of "Sesame Street," delving into the mind of a 78-year-old man who just can't stop dressing up like giant yellow bird and a garbage-dwelling Grouch.

Why smaller films need seeing first

Feature Simon Brew 10 May 2013 - 06:19

As Star Trek Into Darkness joins five or six smaller films in UK cinemas this week, here's how to give the underdog a fighting chance...

Earlier this week, Film4 announced that it was trying something a bit different for the release of Ben Wheatley's upcoming movie, A Field In England. It's a modestly budgeted movie, shot over two weeks, and quite experimental in its approach. That presented Film4 with something of a quandary: how could it get the film out to the widest possible audience?

Back when Wheatley's last film, the terrific Sightseers, was released, our Twitter feed was deluged with people keen to see the film, only to find their local cinema wasn't showing it. It's, sadly, becoming a regular issue with smaller movies, that simply getting a decent number of screens is becoming trickier.

Blu-ray Review: The Man Inside

The Man Inside

Stars: David Harewood, Michelle Ryan, Peter Mullan, Theo Barklem-Biggs, Jason Maza, Ashley Bashy Thomas | Written and Directed by Dan Turner

It’s fair to say that some films get confused as to what they are. The Man Inside for example has “urban drama” elements about a character trying to stop his family from falling into the trap of the gang culture that is so prevalent in this type of film, then of course there is the element of boxing and add to that the theme of parental abuse it’s easy to get confused as to what to focus on. While some complain that there is not enough boxing in it and some think it’s not “urban” enough the actual point of the film can be lost. This is what I feel hinders The Man Inside from being seen for what it is.

With his father now in prison, Clayton struggles to overcome what he was groomed to become, in a city where every day there is a constant threat of violence and death.

The 10 underrated film performances of 2012

Top 10 Mark Harrison Dec 19, 2012

As ever, some spectacular performances were overlooked in this year's rush of movie releases. Here's Mark's pick of the most underrated...

With the awards season gearing up for the big, corpulent, back-slapping ceremonies throughout January and February, we're hurtling towards the end of another cinematic year with the usual sense of anticipation and predictability.

With Daniel Day Lewis' version of President Lincoln touted for acting plaudits, and every other Best Supporting Actress candidate preparing their best loser faces for when Les Miserables' Anne Hathaway scoops every gong going, there's little regard for the great performances in lesser-seen films, or genre cinema. And so, as I did in the previous two years, I've formulated a list of the performances that nobody is talking about in relation to the awards season.

I've tried to pick out turns that either went unnoticed in most reviews, or simply should have gotten more praise,

The HeyUGuys Cinema Release Round-up : 27th July

The Dark Knight rose (sorry, that’s awful) to the top of the Box Office pile this weekend banking an incredible £14 million since its opening last Friday. This makes it the third highest grossing three-day opening behind Avengers Assemble and Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Both The Amazing Spider-Man and Ice Age 4 saw their taking tumble, dropping 73 and 79% respectively, and it’s difficult to see anything unseating Tdkr at the top of the chart for a fair few weeks yet.

Much like last time out, there’s fairly slim pickens out this weekend as the studios undoubtedly see the danger of releasing any of their movies during Tdkr’s first few weeks. Their blockbusters would have to share the market with a more powerful rival, and their mid-range major movies would simply be buried. As such, there are a fair number of smaller movies hoping to capture

This week's new films

Dr Seuss' The Lorax (U)

(Chris Renauld, Kyle Balda, 2012, Us) Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Ed Helms, Danny DeVito. 86 mins.

Dr Seuss's most environmentally minded story was a natural choice for movie treatment, but as with so many others (How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Horton Hears A Who!), the temptation to "expand" on the original runs out of control. Seuss's elegant tale of a land where they paved paradise and cut down all the Truffula trees has been injected with all the compulsory gags, subplots, musical numbers and painfully bright landscapes that family animation is now deemed to require, making for an eco-tale that's packed with artificial additives.

Searching For Sugar Man (12A)

(Malik Bendjelloul, 2012, Swe/UK) 86 mins.

An inspiring documentary that successfully rehabilitates the reputation (and perhaps more) of Sixto Rodriguez, a 1970s Detroit troubadour who never found fame at home but unwittingly became huge in South Africa – where his

Film Review: 'The Man Inside'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ Released in UK cinemas this week, Essex-born filmmaker Dan Turner's The Man Inside (2012) is a gritty urban thriller which, whilst packing a punch, misses its target once too often. Set on the mean streets of 21st century London, the story concerns Clayton (played by UK rapper Ashley 'Bashy' Thomas), who as a child was a witness to both gang-related violence and murder courtesy of his brutally abusive father Eugene (David Harewood).

Michelle Ryan: Filming The Man Inside Made Me Feel Sad

Michelle Ryan: Filming The Man Inside Made Me Feel Sad
Fans of Michelle Ryan are used to seeing her looking rudely healthy, often on the front of magazine covers, never anything less than sun-kissed and brightly blue-eyed.

Michelle Ryan in The Man Inside - not how we're used to seeing her...

They’ll have a shock when they watch her in The Man Inside – pallidly made up, stark brutal makeup, it is an overall look shocking to the eye that ended up upsetting even Ryan herself when she had to film it…

“When they put the blue makeup on me, I actually found it too harsh. I felt very sad wearing it. They gave me red stuff to put on, and that was much softer.”

Ryan plays gothic outsider Alexia in the thriller, co-starring Peter Mullan (Tyrannosaur) and David Harewood (Homeland), telling the story of a young boxer trying to outgrow his father’s gangster past and build on the
