Andrea Riseborough in Oblivion

The Crow remake has been a revolving door of talent over the past couple of years, with various actors and filmmakers coming and going over the years. As of right now, director Corin Hardy (The Hallow) and star Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) are the latest combo to try and tackle the project.

And miraculously, it seems they’re actually making some forward progress. Andrea Riseborough has just signed on on to play the villain. More details on The Crow Andrea Riseborough casting after the jump.  Read More »

What’s a heroic band of gunslingers without a bad guy to fight? Thankfully Antoine Fuqua‘s The Magnificent Seven has finally found its villain in Peter Sarsgaard, who’ll play robber baron Bartholomew Bogue.

Sarsgaard joins a starry cast that includes Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, and Vincent D’Onofrio. It no longer includes Jason Momoa, who has pulled out after entering talks earlier this month. More on the Magnificent Seven Peter Sarsgaard casting after the jump.  Read More »

At first glance, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt don’t seem to have much in common. One is an explosive thriller set in a dusty dystopian hellscape; the other is a colorful sitcom about a naive young woman trying to make it in the big city. But both are about women who’ve been abducted, and both are about what happens once those women break free.

In Kimmy’s case, that involved becoming the subject of her own “Bed Intruder“-style viral video. But Furiosa and the wives didn’t get one, because the only musician employed in that horrible society is too busy rocking a combination flamethrower/guitar for the bad guys.

Happily, one YouTuber has now decided to correct that grave injustice. Watch the Mad Max Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt mashup you didn’t know you needed, after the jump.  Read More »

Simon Pegg in The World's End

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Simon Pegg talks to the press, and gets fans bickering about what it all means. In this case, though, Pegg’s controversial comments aren’t about the secret cameos in the next Star Wars movie, or about the true identity of a Star Trek villain, but about the very state of mainstream geek culture.

In short, Pegg has suggested that sci-fi and genre films since Star Wars are “infantilizing” us, and “taking our focus away from real-world issues.” Though once he gets going, it turns out his argument is a little more complicated than that.
