chappie behind the scenes

The name Neill Blomkamp has been everywhere of late. He’s directing the next Alien movie. He says he messed up his last movie. But the one thing that keeps getting lost in all of that talk is that he has a new movie out March 6, called Chappie. It’s the story of robot which gains consciousness, and appears to be infused with the director’s trademark social commentary, high-octane action and a big time cast.

We’ll have more on the film as release approaches but we’re excited to reveal some brand new images from Titan Books’ Chappie: The Art of the Movie. It’s out March 3 and is filled with concept art and behind the scenes images, many of which focus on Sharlto Copley‘s performance capture role as the lead character.

Below, check out brand new Chappie behind the scenes images. Read More »

Sony and Marvel have found their man to take on the new feature film version of the Web Slinger. Drew Goddard has reportedly been chosen to write and direct the new Spider-Man film, set for release in 2017.

Goddard, best known for co-writing and directing The Cabin in the Woods, was previously attached to the Daredevil TV show before leaving that to focus on Sinister Six, a Spider-Man spin-off project that is now dead. Read more of the Drew Goddard Spiderman details below.

UPDATE: A representative for Drew Goddard denied these claims, however that most likely doesn’t change things. Read More »

On paper, Chris Weitz might seem like an unlikely choice to write a Star Wars movie. As a director, he’s best at realistic fare like About A Boy and A Better Life. He’s done bigger fantasy too, like The Golden Compass and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, but those are based on books. Even his latest film, Cinderella, is based on a very well known story and uses magic as sparsely as possible. Star Wars is a whole other beast, especially since he’s writing a standalone movie that could literally be about anything.

We were given the chance to speak to Weitz on the occasion of the release of Cinderella and, of course, had to bring up a galaxy far, far away. To recap, he was brought on to rewrite the first standalone movie, which comes out in December 2016 and will be directed by Gareth Edwards. Weitz, speaking to the press for the first time since the announcement, told us about his excitement going after the project, the security behind the process, how he’s using the film’s first screenplay by Gary Whitta, if he’s read the online rumors about the project and, finally, what fans should expect from the movie. Below, read our Chris Weitz Star Wars quotes. Read More »

Get Hard

Here’s one good argument for getting past racial stereotypes: Make the wrong assumptions, and you could find yourself getting stabbed or sucking a guy off as ill-advised “prison training” from some guy who’s never received so much as a parking ticket.

That’s the premise of Get Hard, the new comedy starring Will Ferrell as a hedge fund manager sentenced to a maximum security prison. In desperation, he seeks help from the first black guy he sees — an upstanding small business owner played by Kevin Hart. Watch the Get Hard red-band trailer after the jump.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 story

James Gunn has been very honest that he’s going to be adding characters to Guardians of the Galaxy 2. That’s what happens in a sequel. The universe gets expanded, flipped on its head, some characters die, others go away, anything is possible. The bigger question is who, or in the Guardians galaxy “what,” is going to be added to the sequel? Since the movie is over two years away, we won’t get that full reveal for a while but the writer and director dropped a cryptic hint about a new addition on Twitter.

Below, read James Gunn’s cryptic tease about a new Guardians of the Galaxy character and our thoughts on who it may be. Read More »

Jared Leto Joker

In 2014, Jared Leto won an Oscar for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club. In 2015, that meant two things. He could do any role he wanted and he had to appear at awards shows to present. We know the role he chose, Joker in David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad, and we all saw the actor at the Oscars, sporting long, flowing locks and full beard. He looked decidedly un-like the Joker.

Well, the first step in Jared Leto’s physical transformation into the Clown Prince of Gotham City has begun. Plus Ayer described the character using one kind of surprising word. Below, check out the Jared Leto Joker preparation.

UPDATE: See a second photo from the film’s director too.

Laurent Durieux Godfather II header

As a film fan, one of the eternal debates is The Godfather vs. The Godfather Part II. Both films won Best Picture and both films are all time classics. No one is disputing that. But forced to choose one, do you choose the rise of Michael Corleone as his father, Don Vito Corleone, passes on? Or do you choose the epic dual story of the Corleone family’s beginning, with Vito’s rise to power, alongside its expansion, as Michael broadens and splits the family? It’s a Catch 22, Sophie’s Choice if ever there was one and a debate that’s sure to go on forever.

On the poster side, though, this debate has been closed.

Last year, Odd City Entertainment debuted their official Godfather license with a beautiful piece by Laurent Durieux. Today, they’ve revealed part two of the poster trilogy, also by Durieux. And no knock on the artist himself, but his version of The Godfather Part II blows the original away. See the full Laurent Durieux Godfather Part II poster, and get all the details, below.
