HBO is quickly filling slots on its upcoming sci-fi show Westworld with some top end talent. The show, produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, Bryan Burk and writers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, is based on the 1973 film written and directed by Michael Crichton. It’s about robots at a theme park that run amok, an idea the author evolved two decades later for Jurassic Park.
Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood were already cast as two of the show’s leads and now six more actors have joined. Best known among them are Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Rodrigo Santoro (300) along with Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.

Following yesterday’s juicy little teaser, not one but two full-length trailers for Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah have arrived, and you can check out both of them after the jump.
Russell Crowe stars as the familiar Biblical hero, who’s driven by a vision from God to prepare for an upcoming flood that could wipe out all life on Earth. He builds an ark and begins to round up the animals, but not everyone (including villain Ray Winstone) is on board with his plan.

Sometimes it’s hard to imagine having something in common with famous actors and actresses. Though they make their living entertaining us, often playing larger-than-life characters, they’re still human. Simple pleasures like a fantastic TV show dazzle them as much as it does us.
With that in mind, here’s a crazy story. Recently, Anthony Hopkins binge watched the entire five seasons of Breaking Bad, buying the newest episodes on Amazon to finish the series. Afterwards, he was so inspired, he wrote a letter to Bryan Cranston praising the show, and calling Cranston’s performance as Walter White “the best acting I have seen – ever.”
It’s a beautiful letter coming from, himself, of the best actors ever. Read it below. Read More »

With D23 in full swing, Disney seized the opportunity to show off a new clip from Thor: The Dark World, due out in theaters this fall. Stars Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, and Anthony Hopkins were on hand to present the scene, which depicts Jane’s first day in Asgard. “I didn’t check her passport,” joked Hopkins, who plays Odin. “She’s so beautiful, she belongs in Asgard.”
Despite her godly good looks, however, Jane’s introduction to the realm doesn’t go too smoothly. Hit the jump for a description of the exclusive footage screened at D23.

We’re close enough to the release of Thor: The Dark World that it’s time for the photoshop collage poster, featuring as many elements as possible. In truth, this collage is better than many. It’s got Thor (Chris Hemsworth) cradling Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) front and center, while Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston) looks on and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) laughs.
As most probably realize, the arrival of a new poster heralds a new trailer; in this case the new footage hits on August 7. Check out the full image below.

Darren Aronofsky‘s telling of the great Biblical flood, which will hit theater screens as Noah, has gone quiet in the past few months. The film shot last year, with Russell Crowe in the lead, and Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone and Anthony Hopkins rounding out the primary supporting cast.
Now in post-production, it’s been a while since we saw any new peeks at Aronofsky’s realization of the story, which promises to be a rather different one from any we’ve seen on screen so far. But a few new images have surfaced, all appearing to be shots of the cast from actual scenes rather than set pics, even if they’re not in great resolution. Could these be clipped from a forthcoming footage release? We’ll see, but for now you can check out the shots below. Read More »

Lionsgate made two release date changes today.
Now You See Me, which comes from director Louis Leterrier and features Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, and Michael Caine, has been pulled up from July 7 to May 31. The thriller centers around a group of illusionists who pull off heists, seemingly at the same time they’re on stage doing magic tricks. The trailer has been out for a while, and the cast is certainly appealing. Hard to tell if the movie will follow through on the great premise and talented cast. It’ll be up against narrow competition from Universal’s The Purge and a limited release of Zal batmanglij’s Sound of My Voice follow-up The East, but The Hangover Part III and Fast & Furious 6 will still be in theaters from the week before.
Another film from the studio has moved up, as well. The action/comedy sequel Red 2 was slated to open on August 2, but will now bow on July 19. Dean Parisot directed with Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and Helen Mirren returning and Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones showing up to augment another story of retired assassins going back into action.
