We haven’t seen much at all from the new Duncan Jones movie Warcraft, but at Blizzcon today the gates are opening on some of the film’s story. We’ve known most of the cast of the film, which includes Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown. Until today we weren’t certain about most of their characters beyond the fact that Foster would play Medivh. Now we know roles for all the major players, and we’ve even got early renders of a couple of them in character. Meet the Warcraft movie characters below.

The primary cast for Warcraft, directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) was announced weeks ago, but we’ve got a couple new names.
Clancy Brown, who has played a couple of the screen’s most memorable growling villains, is now taking a role. And Daniel Wu, of films such as New Police Story, The Shinjuku Incident, and Tai Chi Zero, has also signed on. Read More »
Each of the few times I’ve watched this Sleepy Hollow trailer, a new obvious influence comes to mind: Captain America, The Terminator, The X-Files, Demolition Man, and National Treasure are all in here, just for starters.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are the “masterminds” behind this goofy Mad Libs in which Ichabod Crane was tasked by George Washington with killing one specific redcoat. This redcoat becomes the Headless Horseman — but not merely your run of the mill ghostly horseman. He’s one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. This horseman is now running around modern America, and Ichabod Crane is reawakened to stop him.
Oh, and there’s a “there’s a Starbucks everywhere” joke. And Orlando Jones, and Clancy Brown. The whole thing is either going to be so ridiculous it transcends the total absurdity of the premise. Or, as the trailer below suggests, it might not. Read More »

It’s a sad day for comic book fans, as we get updates that suggest two long-gestating adaptations, David Fincher‘s The Goon and Rawson Thurber‘s Elfquest, are no longer happening. Sure, they could get revived somewhere down the line — crazier things have happened — but if I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath. Hit the jump for updates.

We’ve already had the chance to ooh and ahh over most of the Sundance Film Festival 2012 slate earlier this month, but with weeks to go until the festival four latecomers have just been announced. There are a few last-minute additions every year; last year’s included Miranda July’s The Future, while 2010’s included Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are All Right.
This year, we have the intriguingly titled sci-fi John Dies at the End; This Must Be the Place, starring Sean Penn as an aging rock star; Jesse Eisenberg and Melissa Leo‘s new comedy Predisposed; and the Norwegian drama Oslo, August 31st. Read the descriptions after the jump.

The cast of Christopher McQuarrie‘s One Shot has been filling up at lightning speed over the past month. Robert Duvall, Alexia Fast, Richard Jenkins, and David Oyelowo have all boarded the project within the last few weeks, and now comes news that Spartacus: Blood and Sand star Jai Courtney has signed on as well. Based on the novel by Lee Child, the story follows military cop turned drifter Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) as he investigates a string of sniper shootings. Rosamund Pike is also set to star, as a detective who works with Jack to solve the case.
Courtney will be playing one of the bad guys, a highly trained sniper who tries to keep Reacher from finding out the truth. One Shot is scheduled for a February 8, 2013 release. [Cinema Blend]
After the jump, Hugh Jackman thinks that he might want to do Glee, and Highlander actor Clancy Brown gets competitive with Dennis Quaid.

Don Coscarelli is back! The director of the Phantasm films and Bubba Ho-Tep may not be the most technically proficient filmmaker around, but he makes films that have an undeniable appeal. I can’t imagine how anyone who likes strange films and genre stuff wouldn’t love Coscarelli’s movies — they create their own space outside the typical horror/fantasy sphere.
And now he’s back with John Dies at the End. I’ve avoided a lot of material about this movie, and prior to watching this trailer knew only that the film features Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown and a story about a new drug and subjective reality.
After watching the teaser trailer I don’t know much more than that, but I do know that I’m very excited to see the film, which appears to be characterized by a really bizarre story and some spectacularly gooey, very practical creature effects. Check out the footage below. Read More »
Good things come to those who wait; sometimes we just have to wait a very long time. Fans of Eric Powell‘s supernatural head-busting comic series The Goon may recall my enthusiasm for the Comic Con panel held for the comic in 2009. That panel was where we learned that Powell was still working with David Fincher to make an animated film based on the comic, and that Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti had agreed to voice the two main characters, the Goon and Franky.
A short test clip was shown in ’09, and it didn’t end up online until now. It’s a fun piece of animation; check it out below. Read More »
