By: Nick Venable At the rate he’s working, actor Nicholas Hoult might star in every fifth film released in the next few years. Having recently shown his undead chops as the lead in Jonathan Levine’s Warm Bodies, Hoult is quickly proving he’s capable of any genre he tackles. He’s got Jack the Giant Slayer on the immediate horizon, and Mad Max: Fury Road and the next X-Meninstallment coming next year. Now audiences … Continue reading Nicholas Hoult Soldiers Up For Rupert Wyatt’s WWI Love Story
By: Eric Eisenberg As the Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock had many tools in his filmmaking belt, but perhaps one of his greatest was his ability to craft empathetic lead characters who are as caught up in the mystery as the audience. In Rear Window Jimmy Stewart isn’t sure if he’s witnessed a murder or just stir crazy. In North By Northwest Cary Grant is a victim of mistaken identity … Continue reading Side Effects Writer Scott Z. Burns Talks The Hitchcock Influence And Pain Of Letting Things Go
By: Nick Venable When most Hollywood stars make their directorial debut, they opt for something cheap and independent, perhaps a story of a love not meant to be, or the struggle experienced by one character. Even a simple crime drama. But not Ryan Gosling, the actor whose first venture into music was the gothic and monster-minded duo Dead Man’s Bones. A noir fairy tale mystery seems like … Continue reading Saoirse Ronan The Latest To Join Ryan Gosling’s How To Catch A Monster
By: Katey Rich Even though Yoda has gone from old-school puppet to CGI-created warrior, there’s one thing about the character that has never changed over the course of six Star Wars films: Frank Oz. The man who used his voice to make Yoda’s unmistakable– not to mention creating voices for Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Cookie Monster and more– is as much a key part of the character as … Continue reading Frank Oz Would Return As Yoda If The Star Wars Spinoff Ever Happens
By: Sean O’Connell The Justice League movie might never graduate beyond the rumor stage. The last bit of news we reported about the potential JLA movie was pretty bad (more on that in a second). But when the rumors are as tantalizing as the one that recently dropped, you understand why this project potentially works better as fanboy wishes and dreams than as an actual movie that probably won’t live … Continue reading Ben Affleck Was Asked To Play Batman In The Justice League Movie?
By: Nick Venable It’s a frightening time for movies when “remakes of adaptations” garner just as many headlines as everything else. Such is the case with Universal’s Endless Love, a remake of the Franco Zeffirelli’s 1981 multi-Razzie Award nominee starring Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt, itself based on Scott Spencer’s popular novel of the same name, though many of the changes made for the film added melodramatic … Continue reading Once Upon A Time’s Sarah Bolger And Others Auditioning For Endless Love Remake
By: Eric Eisenberg What’s even bigger news than a new Star Wars trilogy? Even more Star Wars movies beyond that! The internet exploded yesterday with speculation and rumor yesterday when Disney CEGO Bob Iger announced that part of the studios deal with LucasFilm would result in a few standalone movies set within the universe created by George Lucas. The executive announced that writers Lawrence Kasdan … Continue reading Star Wars Stand Alone Films Aren’t A Go Yet, John Noble Up For Villain Role In Episode VII?
By: Eric Eisenberg Those familiar with Stieg Larsson‘s dark Swedish thriller trilogy known as the Millennium series know that Lisbeth Salander is lynchpin that brings the story together and is the central focus, but they also can’t deny the importance of investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Thus it was odd when a rumor popped up earlier this week saying that there was a possibility that the … Continue reading Rooney Mara Says Daniel Craig Won’t Be Written Out Of The Girl Who Played With Fire
By: Nick Venable You know the old joke, “What do you get when you cross the eleventh Doctor and Young Hercules?” No? That’s because it’s not a joke, people. It’s real life news. According to Variety, Matt Smith, the eleventh and current incarnation of Britain’s cult hero Doctor Who, is coming to America and then heading to the underworld for How to Catch a Monster, … Continue reading Doctor Who Star Matt Smith Joins Ryan Gosling’s Noir Fantasy How To Catch A Monster
By: Eric Eisenberg Thanks to an extended trailer that featured even more stunts, action and car racing than the Super Bowl spot (not to mention more Gina Carano vs. Michelle Rodriguez), Fast & Furious 6 has dominated a lot of attention today, but it’s no longer the only big car-centric action movie on the block. Dreamworks is quickly putting together their adaptation of the Need For Speed video game series … Continue reading Michael Keaton Joins Aaron Paul In Need For Speed
