The Prometheus Blu ray/DVD has hit our shelves now and fans that were hoping for an extended cut explaining a few of the plot holes have been left disappointed. But don’t despair there are a treasure-trove of extras on the disc and one of them is an Easter egg that supposedly links Prometheus to director Ridley Scott's 1982 classic Blade runner.
Please, please, please, please, please....let The Daily Mail be right.
Words I thought I'd never type.
Cryptic, ponderous, inaccessible, beautiful - there are several ways to aptly describe some of Terrence Malick's back catalogue. Many of them, however, could also be suitably referred to as 'ludicrously star-studded'.
Looper came out a couple of weeks ago and everyone has been singing its praises. It’s an original take on the time travel genre, filled with great performances, amazing set design, a great script and overall one of the most interesting and exciting films of the year. I won’t ruin anything for you in case you haven’t seen it but if you haven’t I highly recommend you do.
Once you have seen it, I recommend you see it again and listen to director Rian Johnson's commentary track that he has just released.
The RoboCop Remake has managed to keep the production pretty tightly under wraps and the only glimpses we have had of the new RoboCop suit have been from leaked set pics. Well, we have a few more leaked pictures for you below.
On a breezy evening in early October, hundreds of screaming fans occupied the streets of Times Square to meet the star of the eminent Taken series, Liam Neeson, and revel in a special sneak preview of the highly anticipated sequel Taken 2.
For me, an all-female version of The Expendables is one of the most genuinely interesting developments in the action genre for quite some time (mainly in terms of how the gender switch will be treated in the realms of plot, scripting and representation, but I'm definitely eager to see if they can get Linda Hamilton with an assault rifle and shades again).
We've had two instalments of ageing masculine action relics in which all remaining finances (after hefty wages have been paid) have been seemingly funnelled into pyrotechnics. Healthy box office takings have inspired producer Adi Shankar (Dredd 3D, Killing Them Softly) to take the idea and seek out female actors with the capacity to distribute beat-downs and blow things into smithereens.
Formerly known as American Bullshit (a title presumably dropped by studio bosses to the collective relief of marketing personnel), David O. Russell's next project is now in the uncertain abyss of lacking a confirmed title. What is certain, however, are details of the main players in Russell's film, due for release in late 2013.
Annoyingly, after an excellent opening weekend, it seems that Taken 2 has made enough money to seemingly justify the studio’s contentious decision to cut the film down for a softer 12A certificate in the UK.
"Psycho gave me very wrinkled skin. I was in that shower for seven days - 70 setups. At least, he made sure the water was warm." - Janet Leigh.
How far Scarlett Johansson will go in the quest for realism we are yet to see, but here's a clue: stills from the soon to be released Hitchcock. Scarlet looks pretty Janet Leighlike.
