With the impending release of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' on Blu-ray and DVD, some of our readers will be getting a nifty Steelbook Edition only released in the UK. Said edition will hand its owners a very interesting Easter egg indeed via the bonus features: A possible connection between the 'Prometheus' and Scott's 1982 classic 'Blade Runner'. (It's unclear to us at the moment if this is relegated to the UK edition or is featured in all editions.) Geeks, start your drooling!
The iPhone's iOS6 upgrade has brought Siri closer to sentience. At least when it comes to movies; the "personal assistant" now evidently feels sympathy towards some of its misunderstood cinematic counterparts. Want to know Siri's take on 'Blade Runner'? It could make you look at it in a whole new light.
Your childhood fantasy (or fear?) of seeing an officer of the law who is part man/part machine may be coming true soon, thanks to Researchers at Florida International University's Discovery Lab and a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Reserves. These folks are working to build "telepresence robots," which would patrol the streets while being controlled by disabled police officers and military vets. Let's pause to allow the awesomeness sink in.
Even James Bond finds the time to tweet when the news is important.
The official 007 Twitter account was recently updated with some very interesting release date news for those looking forward to seeing 'Skyfall' on an IMAX screen... or really any screen at all. Turns out we'll be able to see the flick in theaters before its official November 9 release date. So, how early will the Sam Mendes-directed film drop in? Find out after the break!
Just the other day, we remarked on how little is known about the plot of 'Paranormal Activity 4,' but then one of our intrepid movie critics got to see a "work-in-progress screening" of the film at Fantastic Fest and revealed a ton of details. Now you can see bits of what he saw through the latest trailer for the October spook-a-thon. Check it out after the break!
It would appear as though the 2013 awards season already has a major player in 'The Homesman,' and the picture hasn't even begun shooting yet. The film, set to be written and directed by Tommy Lee Jones (who also plans to star), is an American frontier drama with a handful of meaty roles. Today, we may know who will occupy a couple of those meaty roles: Oscar-winners Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank. (Jones won an Oscar too, so we're talking lots of potential "Academy Award Winner..." titles on 'The Homesman's' poster.)
We've been waiting patiently for a proper follow-up to 1994's 'Dumb and Dumber' for, well, almost 20 years now. (Let's not count that unfortunate prequel.) One of those projects that seems to have life for a moment once every two years, it has never felt like it was going to truly come together. But the stars appear to be aligning for our dopey friends, as writer-directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly have revealed the title of the new 'Dumb and Dumber' installment.
Based on its fantastical premise, 'Lore' was already sounding like the next 'Men in Black.' Now, with this latest development on the film, it's almost officially the next 'Men in Black.' 'MIB' helmer Barry Sonnenfeld is in talks to direct Warner Bros.' movie adaptation of the IDW comic, which has already lined up Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to star.
Perfectly timed to coincide with the DVD and Blu-ray release of 'The Avengers,' eFX Inc. has announced the first items in a large slew of cool, collectible prop replicas inspired by the Marvel Universe have now gone on sale. For one, the vintage Captain America posters as seen in 'Captain America: The First Avenger' can be yours to take home, but there's still so much more to come.
Can you imagine a week-long road trip with your mother? What if your mother were Barbra Streisand?! That would be crazy, right? Fortunately for you, there's no need to imagine such a thing -- Hollywood has done it for you! Paramount Pictures' 'The Guilt Trip,' starring Seth Rogen and Ms. Streisand is coming home for the holidays, and today brings us the first clip from the comedy. Watch it after the break!
