GoldenEye

Two decades after GoldenEye, star Pierce Brosnan and director Martin Campbell are looking to team up again, albeit for a very different kind of movie. They’re joining forces for Across the River and Into the Trees, based on Ernest Hemingway‘s 1950 novel about an older man who travels to an exotic location and strikes up a romance with a much younger woman. So on second thought, maybe Across the River and Into the Trees has something in common with James Bond after all.  Read More »

Silence of the Lambs Print

Plenty of blockbusters and classic sci-fi movies have gotten the collectible artwork treatment from Mondo, Gallery 1988 and more, but the modern classic Silence of the Lambs has rarely been afforded such a tribute. Previously, Mondo had Caesar Moreno create a couple of pieces, and Ken Taylor crafted one a little while back as well. But now it’s Grey Matter Art showing some love for the Best Picture winner from 1991 with a gorgeous new print (and variant) from artist Florian Bertmer.

SELMA

With Selma, Ava DuVernay went from a Sundance darling to one of the busiest and most sought-after filmmakers in Hollywood. She flirted with and then turned down Marvel’s Black Panther, she made plans to reunite with Selma star David Oyelowo for a Hurricane Katrina drama, and she got to work developing the drama Queen Sugar for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network.

What she hasn’t done, however, is announced her next feature film. And as of now, a couple of different genre projects are vying to be it. DuVernay is reportedly being courted for both Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time and Amblin’s Intelligent Life. The former is an adaptation of the childhood classic by Madeleine L’Engle, and the latter is a sci-fi thriller scripted by Jurassic World‘s Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.

UPDATE: Lupita Nyong’o is reportedly in talks for Intelligent Life, and DuVernay should receive a formal offer in short order. More details below. Read More »

Our studies at Brakebills will continue for another year. The cable network has just renewed The Magicians for a second season, just three episodes into its first season. Frequently described as “Harry Potter for grown-ups,” the fantasy drama follows a group of graduate students attending the Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy in upstate New York.  Read More »

Assassin's Creed and The Matrix

Will Assassin’s Creed break the video game movie curse? World of Warcraft might accomplish that task first, based on director Duncan Jones‘ (Moon) involvement, but later this year, if Jones’ adaptation does disappoint, then director Justin Kurzel has a real shot at shattering the curse. Kurzel reunites with Macbeth stars, Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, for this Ubisoft adaptation, which Fassbender says is “old school” and inspired by The Matrix.

the clapper cast

There is something eminently watchable about Ed Helms, who has spent a significant portion of his career suffering onscreen for our amusement. With his role as a regular correspondent on The Daily Show, her perfected the act of playing a buffoon lacking any and all self-awareness. In The Office, he elevated his oblivious blowhard persona to the next level, often facing all sorts of painful repercussions for his actions. And then he appeared in the new Vacation and the Hangover sequels, which is punishment enough for ten comedians.

Now, he’s looking to play another sad-sack punching bag in The Clapper, which will team him up with Amanda Seyfried and writer/director Dito Montiel.

Hugo Strange AC

I stopped watching Gotham after the first season, but people I know and trust have told me the show has gotten a lot better in the second season as they’ve evolved in to a more serialized show. The Fox crime drama is set to return later this month (Monday, February 29) and we’ve begun to learn more about the upcoming episodes. Last week we learned that Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Fish Mooney will return to Gotham for a few episodes, and now we have our first look at Jurassic Park and Mr. Robot’s B.D. Wong as Batman villain Dr. Hugo Strange. See the first Gotham Hugo Strange photo, after the jump.

Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant

It’s not entirely Mark L. Smith‘s fault that Leonardo DiCaprio found himself chowing down on raw bison liver and risking hypothermia in freezing cold water on the set of The Revenant. But as the screenwriter, Smith definitely bears some responsibility. He’s the one who wrote Hugh Glass into a world that gets “colder, icier, more frozen and harder,” as his journey continues, after all.

Still, The Revenant‘s famously difficult production process has paid off, at least in that five-time Oscar nominee Leonardo DiCaprio seems to have best shot yet at actually taking home a statue. So maybe it’s not surprising DiCaprio is looking to hook up with Smith again. The two are reuniting for Conquest, which has just been picked up by Paramount Pictures.  Read More »
