Steve Martin will follow up his extraterrestrial landing in Home with a very different movie about a very different journey. He’s just signed on for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Ang Lee‘s upcoming Iraq War drama.

Also set to star are Garrett Hedlund, and newcomer Joe Alwyn as the titular Billy Lynn. More on the Steve Martin Billy Lynn casting after the jump. Read More »

Raiders of the Lost Ark

It’s usually hard sci-fi pics like Interstellar or Gravity that spark scientific discussion, but in truth you can look at just about any film through a scientific lens. You could consider the cognitive science behind cons while watching American Hustle, or try to sort out archaeology fact from fiction while watching Raiders of the Lost Ark. And this year’s Science on Screen encourages you to do just that.

The annual program pairs a movie with thematically linked lecture from a scientist, researcher, or professor. For example, this year Space Jam is paired with a talk about the physics of sports, while There Will Be Blood sets up a discussion about geology. Get all the details on Science on Screen, which takes place in a variety of cinemas around the US, after the jump.  Read More »

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Honest Trailer

I wholeheartedly disagree with just about every sentiment in the latest Honest Trailer from the team at ScreenJunkies. But damned if it didn’t make me laugh.

The latest Honest Trailer is for the current highest grossing film of 2014, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Its basic thesis is that the movie is long, boring and drawn-out just to set it as the first of two movies. Which, as I said, I totally disagree with. (You can read why in my review.) Still, there are some big laughs here, and plenty of edits that make the characters look really, really stupid. Which is always fun even if you love the movie.

Jon Foo in Tekken

Jon Foo is the new Jackie Chan. Well, for the purposes of CBS’ Rush Hour pilot, anyway. The British actor, stunt man, and martial artist has just been cast as Detective Lee in the action-comedy series, based on the 1998 film starring Chan and Chris Tucker.

Transformers Age of Extinction

Before we close the book on another year in film, Brandcameo has one more set of awards to hand out. But these aren’t for achievements in acting or directing or sound mixing. These are for all the product placements that cropped up in the movies last year, from Reese Witherspoon‘s REI boots in Wild to, well, the entirety of The Lego Movie.

The winner for most brands in a single film shouldn’t be hard to guess (I’ll give you a hint: it’s in the headline) but smaller films like Nightcrawler and The Theory of Everything apparently still found ways to squeeze in a few notable brand mentions. Find out who won the sometimes dubious honors in the 2015 Brandcameo Product Placement Awards after the jump.  Read More »

Independence Day sequel star

Jessie Usher, who plays the lead role in the Starz series Survivor’s Remorse, is now set to play one of the primary characters in the Independence Day sequel, which Roland Emmerich will direct for release almost exactly 20 years after the drop of the original film. Usher will play Dylan Dubrow, who in the original movie was the young stepson of Will Smith’s character, and as such he’s probably either the Independence Day sequel star, or one of them.

UPDATE: In addition, director Roland Emmerich confirmed two names who were previously mentioned for the film: Liam Hemsworth and Jeff GoldblumRead More »

 The Moon is a Harsh Mistress movie

Bryan Singer is about to tackle yet another X-Men movie for release in 2016, but after that, he might stay in the world of sci-fi for a different sort of film. 20th Century Fox has just picked up the rights to The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, based on a novel by legendary sci-fi writer Robert A. Heinlein. It’s unclear if Singer would direct or produce but Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern) is writing the script for the adaptation, which will be retitled Uprising.

The 1966 novel has come close to becoming a movie a few times but rights recently reverted back to Heinlein’s estate. Fox then swooped in to grab the property. Read more about The Moon is a Harsh Mistress movie below. Read More »
