Full Trailer For The Live Action Lupin III Movie

This looks like a riot. [youtube][/youtube] Translating this kind of elastic, super-stylish manga or anime into live action takes a certain sensibility, but I think Ryuhei Kitamura has the right taste. I hope he also brings the craftsmanship too. There are no obvious English-language release plans as yet but we'll at least be able to […]

CW Really Won't Let You Miss The (Official Screening Of) Flash This Fall

When The Flash premieres on the CW this October it's going to take a Tuesday slot. Some might be surprised to see that the network isn't pairing the show with Wednesday night's Arrow and trying to get a boost that way. Well, CW do see the value here because, for the first two weeks at […]

New Image Of Tom Hardy And Charlize Theron As Their Mad Max Characters

From the cover of this week's EW, and complete with a slightly disturbing joke about Charlize Theron's character only having one arm, here's the hero and villainess of Mad Max: Fury Road. Hardy is playing "Mad" Max Rockatansky, Theron is playing Imperator Furiosa. Brilliant. George Miller explained to EW that he's centred his film on action, and […]

Shane Black Co-Writing And Directing Predator Reboot

If at first you don't succeed, reboot. 20th Century Fox were very keen to get Shane Black to rewrite their Predator script back in the 80s. He resisted, so the studio tried a trick. They cast him in the film, and then on set, asked him again if he'd take a look at the draft. […]

The Guardians Of The Galaxy Are Cover Stars

Empire's new issue has two covers, one with the Guardians of the Galaxy and the other with their nemeses. The heroes seem a little more motley than the villains, and that of course, is the point. Where's Thanos? The Collector? Note how the Guardians are a multicoloured bunch while the baddies have a lot less […]

New Trailer For The Purge 2: Anarchy Shows How Much Bigger The World Is Than Last Year's Film

For The Purge, director James DeMonaco kept everything pretty much locked down to one suburban street, and even then to one suburban house. His sequel, The Purge: Anarchy is a lot more ambitious. The better to show off the vicious, violent class warfare. [youtube][/youtube] Frank Grillo looks like a dirty, sweaty Batman – or, to […]

Report: Wonder Woman's Costume, Batman's New Pad And Lex Luther's Beef

I'm not 93.78% sure that JoBlo have a source who works in visual FX. It would tie all of their recent reports together. Here's a new one, courtesy of their YouTube channel, that purports to have a good deal of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice juice. I'm going to believe this one. Your mileage […]

It all started with a comic book… but it went way, way beyond that. Utopia is playwright Dennis Kelly's paranoid conspiracy thriller and, after a first series that became a bona fide cult artefact, series two is very keenly anticipated. Here's the first trailer. [youtube][/youtube] Kicks off on Channel 4 in July. HBO's remake is […]

Kevin Feige Clarifies Where Things Stand With Ant-Man And Doctor Strange

The best transcripts out of Kevin Feige's CineEurope presentation come from Total Film. They've got pretty much everything he said, but what concerns us, right now, are his comments on Ant-Man and Doctor Strange. We'll start with Ant-Man. There's been a lot written about the film lately, for obvious reasons, and a lot of questions […]
