Each year, there are a couple of actors who seem to be everywhere you turn. In 2011, it was Jessica Chastain. In 2012, it was Channing Tatum. In 2013, it could very well be Benedict Cumberbatch. The jury’s still out on whether we’ll be getting more Sherlock before the year’s out, but either way we’ll be seeing plenty of his handsome British visage. He has some four movies due out next year, and now HBO’s picked up his 2012 UK miniseries Parade’s End to air in the U.S. next month.
Adapted by Tom Stoppard from the book tetralogy by Ford Madox Ford, the series centers on a love triangle between the aristocratic Christopher (Cumberbatch), his unfaithful wife Sylvia (Rebecca Hall), and the spirited young Valentine (Adelaide Clemens) against the backdrop of World War I and a quickly changing society. Stephen Graham, Anne-Marie Duff, Rupert Everett, and Miranda Richardson also star. Watch the teaser trailer after the jump.

You might have forgotten that there is a new Silent Hill film that went into production last year, and has been in the editing room in recent weeks. Seems like the movie comes up every once in a while, then news on it goes quiet for months at a time.
But with a relatively well-received new Silent Hill game on shelves (I liked it OK, anyway) and an anthology of remastered classic chapters from the series also arriving, this is probably the best time to make a deal to distribute the new movie. And so Silent Hill: Revelation 3D has been picked up by Open Road, which will release the movie on October 26 of this year. Read More »
The Silent Hill sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, is shooting right now in Toronto, and keeps adding cast members as it does. Director Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) already had Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington starring, with Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean and Deborah Kara Unger reprising their Silent Hill roles in some unknown capacity.
Now a press release announces that the film also boasts Carrie-Ann Moss as Claudia Wolf and Malcolm McDowell as Leonard Wolf. In the video game Silent Hill 3, Claudia is a major character (modeled to look like Julianne Moore, actually) who sets a good chunk of the plot in motion, and isn’t exactly a passive or sane presence. Read more about her here (and about her father Leonard here) but be warned of possible spoilers for the film. The header image for this article, by the way, is a new still of Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harinton in the film, that was supplied with the press release. Click it to enlarge.
After the break, the Dean Koontz adaptation Odd Thomas gets a young actress and Tyler Perry’s next finds a romantic lead. Read More »
When we first heard about Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, the film sounded more like a spin-off than a sequel to Christoph Gans’ 2006 film Silent Hill. Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) wrote and is directing this new film right now in Toronto, with Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington starring.
But now three major cast members from the previous film have been added. Though we don’t know how big a presence they’ll have in the new film, Sean Bean, Radha Mitchell and Deborah Kara Unger have all joined the cast of Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. More info and a photo of Radha Mitchell in the new film, after the break. Read More »
Above is the first image of Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins : Wolverine and, should it actually shoot, Mad Max: Fury Road) in the sequel to Silent Hill. What sequel to Silent Hill, you ask? As was announced late last year, this one is called Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, and it begins shooting today in Toronto. Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) is directing; more info after the break.

Nicolas Chartier, the producer of The Hurt Locker who made waves last Oscar season when he was barred from the ceremony after sending a few emails urging people to vote for The Hurt Locker, is producing a new indie drama starring Keanu Reeves. The title is the not terribly convincing Generation Um. Read More »
Tom Hardy is taking over the mantle of Mad Max from Mel Gibson (good timing) and while we don’t know too much about what series creator George Miller has planned for Max’s fourth outing, Mad Max: Fury Road, we now know more than we did a few hours ago. Riley Keough (aka the granddaughter of Elvis Presley , who made her feature debut in The Runaways) has joined the cast, and her role sheds a very tiny bit of light on the plot that might ensue.

Just over a week ago word leaked out that Teresa Palmer might be in George Miller‘s upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road. That wasn’t a huge surprise, as Miller had cast Palmer as Talia Ghul in his aborted Justice League movie. Now we’ve got confirmation that Palmer is in fact part of the Mad Max cast, along with another rumored actor, Nicholas Hoult. (Nick Hoult!) Read More »
