Several children have disappeared from a small town and all fingers are pointing towards witches. Who are they going to call to help save the day? Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, that’s who! We all know the Grimm fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel, but not quite like this. Set a number of years after their visit to a gingerbread house, the siblings are now in the profession of Witch Hunting, and business is currently booming. The pair are so well known they even have a groupie by the name of Ben, who conveniently asks all the questions we as an audience need to know to get up to speed with the recent history.
Well, at least one DC based team-up movie is heading along nicely.
Whilst promoting Mama, Guillermo del Toro (Executive Producer) spoke about his work on Justice League Dark (formerly known as Heaven Sent).
Mark Wahlberg recently disclosed that he was asked by J.J. Abrams to appear in the first Star Trek reboot as Captain Kirk's father in the opening scene.
Another year in film, another pointless, cash-cow remake. Big names have been tossed about in Hollywood as to who will take the lead in Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's futile reboot of The Crow. These names include Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum, who could take this film to a new level if dancing and stripping is involved, but alas it isn't and the big casting finger is now firmly pointing to X Men: First Class star and all round loveable Scot, James McAvoy.
Like the fairytales it heralds from, The Princess Bride has a timeless quality that makes it feel as if it hasn't really aged since its original release. The remastered edition for the blu-ray has certainly helped, ensuring that the cinematography and production design still look beautiful. There are still a couple of signs of the film's age, particularly some dodgy 80s haircuts and the contemporary special effects mean that the R.O.U.Ss look like men in rat suits (but then again, they always did). Other than that though, the film does not betray its age, still sparkling with a wit and an energy that makes it a treat to return to again and again.
Good news OT fans! Even though we've been expecting it, it's looking increasingly likely that we will have Luke, Han and Leia back for the new Star Wars films.
After this week's destructive motion poster, Star Trek Into Darkness now has its very own first look featurette, which is actually more of a recap with some added interviews.
David Mitchell’s sprawling epic novel that intertwines a sextet of seemingly disparate narratives across the sands of time forms the basis for this hugely ambitious synonymous imagining from the Wachowski siblings and Tom Tykwer. Critically lauded upon its release for the effortless synergy of its unconnected strands, Mitchell’s novel was soon labelled unfilmable when the inevitable adaptation was mooted. Studios tended to agree and shied away from financing the project, but the passion and determination of the Wachowskis and lead Tom Hanks ensured that with a little help from the German government and multiple independent financiers the film got made.
After the stunning previous concept art earlier this week, even more images of Guillermo del Toro's giant-sized blockbuster spectacle have hit the 'net.
A new motion poster has surfaced to promote the forthcoming release of Star Trek Into Darkness.
