Last week, I sat down with Sam Claflin, who won our hearts in Catching Fire, and now breaks them in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. It turns out, even though Finnick gets his big moment of scorning the Capitol with his carefully collected secrets, there was something the filmmakers cut out of his Part 1 plot.
While talking with Richard King, Mark Weingarten,and Gregg Landaker, the top three men who gave Interstellar its out of this world sound, I asked what they had to say about the public's response to the film's perceived sound issues. As the feature's sound re-recording mixer, Landaker was the obvious expert to question about this particular matter. His answer was fascinating.
This past weekend I had the pleasure to sit down with a couple of castmembers of the soon to explode The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. There was an unmistakable excitement in the air, but there was also something--well, someone--missing. Philip Seymour Hoffman.
If you didn’t know that Walt Disney’s Big Hero 6 shared Marvel DNA, you might not have stayed until the final scene in the hit movie. If so, you missed one of the film’s funniest gags.
It was in late September of last year when reports surfaced saying that Jennifer Lawrence would be making an appearance in the new comedy. When movie-goers go to see the film this weekend, however, they will find that the actress isn’t actually in the movie. So what exactly happened?
Warning! The following article contains some massive spoilers for X-Men: Days of Future Past. If you missed the film in theaters this summer and still wish to not know how the movie ends, please head over to one of our other lovely articles on the site!
The main reason I love Harris’ answer is because it gives us insight into the painstaking process of creating a memorable scene (in a movie that’s packed with them).
X-Men writer/producer Simon Kinberg recently explained that he sees X-Men: Apocalypse as ending a trilogy that began with First Class, “complete the stories” of young Mystique, Beast, Magneto and Professor Xavier. These comments naturally had us worried, fearing that these four integral characters would be somehow walking off into the sunset, but fortunately Kinberg has now set the record straight.
Alexandre Aja's adaptation of Joe Hill's Horns has a lot of things going for it, a good cast included. And at the center of that cast is Daniel Radcliffe, an actor who continues to impress as he steps out from under the shadow that is The Boy Who Lived. So, how did the Harry Potter star land the dark role of the horned Ig Perrish in Horns?
We couldn’t wait to give you the latest on Bored to Death. In short, Schwartzman says the movie's on hold, but he has hopes for the resurrection of season four.
When writer/producer Simon Kinberg signed a three-year deal with 20th Century Fox last year to oversee the future of X-Men and Fantastic Four movies, he acknowledged a pretty straightforward goal: “Be like Marvel.” Referring to the constantly growing cinematic universe at Marvel Studios, Kinberg revealed that he wants to do something massive with his comic book movies – and Deadpool is very much a part of that.
While the characters do have very important ties to the titular doll, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorainne Warren, who were played by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson in last year’s horror film, don’t actually make an appearance in Annabelle. But that wasn’t necessarily always going to be the case.
While most of the characters in Rogen and Goldberg’s This Is The End find a way to get raptured and taken off to heaven, that was not the fate that wound up being orchestrated for James Franco. Instead, a plan to "sacrifice" himself in the third act of the movie goes horribly awry, and he winds up getting eaten by Danny McBride and his team of cannibals.
When Justin Lin came aboard the Fast & Furious with Tokyo Drift, he pulled off something rather creative. By introducing Han, played by Sung Kang, into the series, the director managed to create a continuity connection between the car racing franchise and Lin’s directorial debut, the indie thriller Better Luck Tomorrow. It was such a fascinating and unique move that it got me wondering if Fast & Furious 7 helmer James Wan would be game to do something similar.
Based on the box office results, audiences were more than ready to see Denzel Washinton kicking ass for his Training Day director. And Sony has said they want The Equalizer 2. It can only be a matter of time until the sequel officially is greenlit, right?
In the year that brought us two "White House in Peril" films, Olympus succeeded in being more memorable that White House Down. It banked $161 million in global receipts, though producers likely assume that the shift in location to the UK for London Has Fallen will help push the sequel to a worldwide market.
During the discussion, Affleck talked about how he would have moved mountains to collaborate with Fincher, and admitted to watching one of Fincher’s own masterpieces each time before he has attempted to direct his own feature film.
When an audience member referred to Gone Girl star Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, the Oscar winner hung his head and smiled, to which Fincher joked, “And so, it begins.”
Terry Gilliam is revered in many circles of the filmmaking community thanks to his work with Monty Python and films like The Fisher King, 12 Monkeys and Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. To many, however, he’s more famous for being a strange guy and holding some eccentric views. Like this one.
In an era where Michael Bay is savaged not only by critics and audiences, it's interestingly refreshing to hear someone who works with him singing his praises. In the case of this Transformers franchise star, we might have the best argument as to why he should stay.
Because the matter of a Deadpool movie rating seemed very important to fans, we went right to the source. In our exclusive interview with Rob Liefeld, I asked him if the movie – as far as he knows – will be PG-13, and if the rating concerned him. Here's what he said.
Blumhouse Productions hasn't yet announced The Purge 3. But with The Purge Anarchy earning better reviews from critics, and bigger box office than it's predecessor, a third installment in the dystopian horror franchise seems all but guaranteed. And now we have an idea of where the third movie might go, thanks to one of the stars of the last.
A sequel is promised, but we're still waiting on word that it's a go. And it seems that might all hinge on Jeremy Renner, a man of many, many movie franchises.
Michael K. Williams was too big a name to be casually popping up as a featured extra. So how did this happen? Turns out, Williams had a major moment with the titular superhero that was nearly completely cut from the film.
The time is right for actors looking to make their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe to speak up if interested. And first to say it loud and proud is Michael K. Williams of The Wire and Board Walk Empire.
