Spectre video blog

Following up the new images released earlier today, here’s a new Spectre video blog in which director Sam Mendes explains a lot about what’s going on with James Bond in this 24th film in the (official) series… without actually explaining much at all. But did you think he was just going to lay out the entire plot now, months before the film hits theaters? Not likely. But he does drop a few hints, so check out the video below. Read More »

Love & Mercy

Brian Wilson wasn’t a conventional person, so why should he get a conventional biopic? Love & Mercy casts not one but two actors as the Beach Boys musician. Paul Dano plays him in the 1960s, when he was a young man on track for greatness; John Cusack plays him in the 1980s, as he’s struggling to get out from under an abusive relationship with his doctor Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti).

Leaving aside the fact that Dano, Cusack, and Wilson don’t really look alike at all, Love & Mercy seems like an artful exploration of an American music icon. Elizabeth Banks also stars as Melinda Ledbetter, the woman who would become Wilson’s second wife. Watch the Love and Mercy trailer after the jump.

Blomkamp's Alien

Fox is making Neill Blomkamp‘s new Alien movie, and Sigourney Weaver is definitely on board to reprise her Ellen Ripley role. And while we still don’t know the story, despite the teasing glimpses provided in concept art such as the pieces above, we do know something new: Blomkamp’s Alien will basically disregard Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection as the director says he’s designing the film to sit in sequence after Aliens.

Check out a video interview with Blomkamp and Weaver discussing the next Alien film, below.  Read More »

Tomb Raider Movie Reboot

Six years ago, news of a Tomb Raider movie reboot first hit the web. It was being developed by GK Films as an origin story drawing inspiration from Rise of the Planet of the Apes. MGM then came on board and there a script was even commissioned. But we haven’t heard anything since 2013.

Now there’s the first significant update in two years. Warner Bros. has come on board to distribute the film, which will be written by Evan Daugherty, the writer of Snow White and the Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divergent and the upcoming G.I. Joe 3. Read more about the Tomb Raider movie reboot below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

ernest cline armada synopsis

Considering this site is called “Slashfilm,” we don’t cover a lot of books. But most books aren’t written by Ernie Cline. Cline first hit our radar as the writer of Fanboys, the Star Wars fan story directed by Kyle Newman. He then truly hit a home run with Ready Player One, a massive sci-fi adventure influenced by movies, music, video games and more. It’s currently being developed into a movie by Warner Bros. That’s why Cline’s work fits so well on this site. Those who live and breathe pop culture will truly appreciate it.

His second novel, Armada, sounds like it further explores some of the concepts he’s played with before. The movie rights were picked up last year and, finally, Random House has announced an official release date for the book: July 14. Along with that, we now have the cover and a full synopsis. However, in that synopsis is something very odd. It seems Cline is drawing heavily from The Last Starfighter. Could that actually be? Read the Armada synopsis below. Read More »

sex criminals tv series
One of my current favorite comic book writers is Matt Fraction, and his Sex Criminals is one of my favorite on-going comic book series of the moment. I once half seriously joked on Twitter that David Fincher should direct the live action adaptation based on a screenplay adaptation from Chuck Palahniuk and John August. Now my dream version probably won’t ever happen, but Universal has signed Fraction and his collaborator/wife Kelly Sue DeConnick to a two-year television deal to develop comic book properties for the small screen. The first of which is, yes, Fraction and artist Chip Zdarsky’s Image Comics series Sex Criminals. Find out more about their deal and the Sex Criminals tv series, after the jump.
