There’s no denying the impressive talent behind the new movie The Gambler. It is directed by Rupert Wyatt, the man behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes, directing his first film since that hit. William Monahan, the Oscar-winning writer of The Departed, scripted The Gambler based on a 1974 starring James Caan, originally written by James Toback. This time, Mark Wahlberg is the lead character, acting opposite Brie Larson, John Goodman, Michael K. Williams and Jessica Lange.
So yeah, that’s an impressive line up, would you agree? The Gambler is about a college professor (Wahlberg) with a deep-seated gambling problem who, instead of fighting his debt, seemingly has a death wish to go deeper and deeper. It opens December 25. Below, we’ll tell you more about it and premiere some brand new stills from the movie. Read More »

The word “miniatures” can give the wrong idea when talking about filmmaking. Compared to the “actual” size of the Death Star, for example, the miniature model created for Star Wars was tiny. Compared to a human, it’s still pretty big. Similar miniatures were (ahem) a big part of Interstellar, and New Deal Studios created some amazing models for the film.
The company previously made a Batmobile and garbage truck for The Dark Knight, planes for The Dark Knight Rises, and a model of the hospital fortress to be destroyed in Inception. For Interstellar, New Deal made miniatures of the Endurance, and the Ranger and Lander crafts. Docking shots, a scene featuring an explosion, and the descent into the black hole all used significant miniature effects. Below, see images of the Interstellar miniature models, and get more info on how they were used. Read More »
The departure of Roberto Orci from the bridge of Star Trek 3 was both a blessing and a curse. It was a curse because the movie had its phasers locked on a 2016 release date, but a blessing in that a new director might drum up some excitement after the lackluster second installment. Instantly the discussion began about who should direct the film.
Articles and tweets packed with bad Star Trek puns filled the Internet and one thing became clear, at least for fans of the series. They wanted Jonathan Frakes, aka Commander William T. Riker himself, to direct the film. Besides starring in Star Trek The Next Generation and multiple Trek movies, Frakes actually directed several episodes of the show as well as Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek: Insurrection, two mostly-well-received entries into the Trek canon. He seems like a good man for the job.
As it turns out, he agrees and he’s aggressively going after the gig. Read more of the Jonathan Frakes Star Trek 3 news below. Read More »
Post-production is frequently a total mystery to fans. Once is film is finished, sometimes a studio will release concept art or set photos showing us pre-production. We see the actual production on the screen and in lots of behind the scenes featurettes. But once filming is done, you’d think the movie was magically willed into existence with special effects, music and sound, all perfectly timed to specially selected shots.
Of course, that’s not the case. Post-production frequently takes much longer than either of the other two thirds of production, and is really where the film is found. You just don’t see the process because it all takes place behind closed doors. So it’s a rare treat anytime we get a glimpse at the post-production process on any movie. It’s especially exciting when we get the see how a big name filmmaker does it.
Which leads us to this awesome new video called “Transformers 4: The Final Touches.” In it, we see Michael Bay himself working with his editing team on the finishing touches of Transformers: Age of Extinction all the way up through the film’s premiere. Check out the Michael Bay Transformers 4 editing video below. Read More »

Whovians rejoice: A BBC theme park is coming to the U.K. Attractions based on Doctor Who, Top Gear, and Sherlock are thought likely, though they haven’t yet been confirmed. A Doctor Who ride is not as novel an idea as you might think — Disney considered bringing the sci-fi property to Tomorrowland back in the ’80s.
Since the new park is backed by Paramount Pictures, it’s also expected to feature various Paramount franchises — possibly including Star Trek and Transformers. More on the planned BBC theme park after the jump. Read More »
Were you too scared to click on the red-band Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer from July? Well, a green band trailer is now here and you can finally see what’s in store for the good friends who find a time machine.
This time around, the characters played by Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Rob Corddry misuse their amazing toy and decide to go back into the past to fix the problems they create. They mistakenly end up in the future, though, alongside the son of the character played by John Cusack in the first film (Cusack isn’t back here), played by Adam Scott. Now they have to worry not only about the past, but the present, which is also the past in the future. Then it gets even crazier than that.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 opens February 20 and you can watch the new trailer and see the new poster below. Read More »
