The wait is finally over, Batman fans! Fox's 'Gotham,' the upcoming Batman prequel series, has cast its Commissioner James Gordon, after months of whispers and rumors -- Ben McKenzie, formerly of 'Southland' and 'The O.C.' has been chosen to don the badge and fight crime on the streets of Gotham City in the new series that explores Batman/young Bruce Wayne's origins and the city in which he was raised.
You might not be aware, but EuropaCorp is planning a reboot of the popular 'Transporter' action franchise, which starred Jason Statham as badass Frank Martin. And now the first flick has cast its leading man: Ed Skrein, the British actor who played Daario Naharis, the Khaleesi's love interest in the third season of 'Game of Thrones.' Is Skrein man enough to take on the role popularized by Statham?
Not to be outdone by some of the bigger, more action-packed and commercial films playing trailers during Super Bowl 2014, George Clooney's 'The Monuments Men' has just dropped its trailer for this Sunday's big game online because it's a film about men and war, and these things are very manly -- just like football, you see.
Seems like everyone's getting in on the action for Super Bowl 2014: 'Pompeii,' the new film from Paul W.S. Anderson (best known for the 'Resident Evil' franchise), has released a spot for this Sunday's big game. It's no 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' or 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' that's for sure -- but hey, it's still got plenty of action, and knowing Anderson, it could be pretty nuts.
Hot on the heels of yesterday's character posters, Universal has released the 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer, giving us the first footage of Seth MacFarlane's live-action western comedy -- and it is really, really taking advantage of that red-band warning. There's blood, loads of profanity, and plenty of that crass humor we've come to associate with MacFarlane's endeavors. And Sarah Silverman's playing a prostitute, so you can imagine how that plays out.
The first 'Fault in Our Stars' trailer has arrived, and if you're the emotionally vulnerable type, you may want to grab some tissues. Shailene Woodley seems to be making a career out of playing adorable, down-to-earth and highly relatable high school girls who get super real with teen boys, teaching them lessons about life and love -- but, like, in a really genuine, sweet, and heartbreaking way. It's like 'The Spectacular Now,' but replace alcoholism with terminal illness.
Seth MacFarlane is following up his live-action directorial debut, 'Ted,' with 'A Million Ways to Die in the West,' a satirical Western-comedy with an all-star cast. Regardless of how you feel about MacFarlane's animated projects, like 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad,' his latest effort is sure to get butts in seats ... especially after you take a gander at these new character posters, featuring some pretty pun-tastic, old-timey captions.
There was a lot of talk before Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street' hit theaters about the length of the film: the release had been delayed so Scorsese could get the runtime down to an acceptable three hours from what was said to be a four-hour version of the film, and although Scorsese never releases "director's cuts" of his films, we're hearing you will be able to see his four-hour cut after all when the Blu-ray hits shelves this year.
If you're like some of us around here, you mostly watch the Super Bowl for the hilarious commercials and the awesome new movie trailers. But there's one you won't be seeing on TV: Scarlett Johansson's Super Bowl commercial for SodaStream, which was banned from airing during the upcoming game.
Those who tuned into Sunday night's Grammy Awards were in for a special treat: Disney debuted a new 90-second 'Maleficent' trailer, featuring Lana Del Rey performing a haunting cover of the original animated classic's signature "Once Upon a Dream" tune. Coupled with some epic new footage, the end result was rather breathtaking and just the sort of thing to get us properly excited for the upcoming film, starring Angelina Jolie as the classic Disney villain.
