'The Conjuring' was the biggest horror film since 'The Exorcist,' so it was hardly surprising when we learned that not only was New Line planning a sequel, but a spinoff as well. The latter focuses on the unlikely breakout star of the film, a spooky little doll named Annabelle, and now she's found a pair of friends to scare the hell out of in her very own movie.
Just when you thought you'd seen the last of Ben Kingsley's Mandarin (or Trevor Slattery, rather), Marvel has pulled him back in for an all new One-Shot for their upcoming release of 'Thor: The Dark World' on Blu-ray. In the new short film, Slattery sits down with an inquisitive reporter for his first interview since landing in prison, and we've got a sneak peek at Kingsley reprising his role in the first clip.
It didn't take very long for things to get downright nutty at tonight's Golden Globe awards. Following a hilarious opening from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and a super awkward but totally endearing acceptance speech from Jennifer Lawrence, veteran actress Jacqueline Bisset took the stage to accept an award for Best Supporting Actress for a mini-series or TV movie for her performance in 'Dancing on the Edge.' And then things got pretty crazy.
Word broke last month that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who made his directorial debut with 'Don Jon,' will next tackle a big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's gothic comic book classic 'Sandman.' Since then, we haven't heard much, but now Gordon-Levitt has opened up a bit about his plans for the film in a new interview. So what can we expect from this highly-anticipated project? Something "spectacular," he promises.
While 'Star Wars: Episode 7' has been gearing up for production, plenty of names have been rumored to have taken meetings with J.J. Abrams for roles in the upcoming trilogy. Now comes word of three actors whom Abrams has been eyeing for a possible leading role: Michael Fassbender, Hugo Weaving, and 'Girls' star Adam Driver. And we've also got some details on Abrams' reworked script, which is said to focus more heavily on Luke, Leia, and Han.
Here's some pretty big news for Golden Globes weekend: Quentin Tarantino has apparently finished the script for his upcoming western film, which is reportedly titled 'The Hateful Eight,' and, if the rumors are true, he's already eyeing actors for two of the lead roles: Christoph Waltz (which would make sense), and Bruce Dern (which would make us so, so happy).
We're gearing up for the release of the (very) shiny new version of 'RoboCop' next month, and today brings a brand new international poster, which we've gotta say we're digging much more than the domestic posters we've seen so far -- but that's usually how these things go. As an added bonus, we've got a brand new photo from the film to go along with it, and to keep your interest piqued for the film's February release.
Legendary producer Saul Zaentz, who began his career as a music producer and transitioned into an Oscar-winning film producer, has passed away at the age of 92. Zaentz is perhaps best remembered for his feud with Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty, and for his three Oscar wins for producing the Best Picture winners 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest,' 'Amadeus,' and 'The English Patient.'
We're just a couple of weeks away from the premiere of 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,' and you can check out an extended look at the action thanks to this new clip courtesy of Paramount. In the footage (shown above), Ryan (Chris Pine) is shown to a pretty sweet hotel suite in Moscow by a man named Emree (Nonso Anozie from 'Game of Thrones'), but things quickly take a turn for the deadly, as they often do in the action-packed, high-stakes world of the 'Jack Ryan' series.
It brings us great sadness to report this news on the first day of the New Year -- James Avery, the beloved actor who portrayed Uncle Phil on the hit '90s sitcom 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,' has passed away at the age of 68. Avery, who passed away late last night in Los Angeles, was an actor known for his warmth, and continued to appear on many TV shows over the years after 'Fresh Prince' concluded.
