Ryan Gosling Featured In This "Drive" Clip

Here is th efirst clip from the upcoming film Drive starring Rayn Gosling. Just as the clip was ending my heart started pounding. his may be a film you haven't heard of but I think it is going to make some noise at The Cannes Film Festival this year. The movie will be released in the U.S. on September 16, 2011


Drive is an independent film directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and also stars Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, and Ron Perlman. The movie is based on 2005 book by the same name written by James Sallis.


Drive” is the story of a Hollywood stunt driver by day (Ryan Gosling), a loner by nature, who moonlights as a top-notch getaway driver-for-hire in the criminal underworld. He finds himself a target for some of LA’s most dangerous men after agreeing to aid the husband of his beautiful neighbor, Irene (Carey Mulligan). When the job goes dangerously awry, the only way he can keep Irene and her son alive is to do what he does best—Drive!

Closer Look At The Hellfire Club From X-Men First Class

I am just not impressed with the posters for the upcoming film X-Men First Class. If only they up the effort into these posters like they have for their trailers I would have nothing to complain about.

The one positive thing about the poster is we get a closer look at Hellfire Club.

The film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, January Jones, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon.

X-Men: First Class is scheduled for release on June 3, 2011.

SYNOPSIS:

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift b…

First Image From Focus Features/ LAIKA's ParaNorman

=""

Updated:

Here is the first image from the upcoming film.

I got some exciting news in my email today, I received the press release that Focus Features and LAIKA are reteaming again for two more films.An interesting thing about LAIKA is it is fueled by the vision of its owner, NIKE Co-Founder and Chairman Phil Knight. We all learn something new everyday.

First up is ParaNorman, In the comedy thriller, a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Mr. McPhee), who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, moronic grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.

The film has a pretty impressive voice cast includes Academy Award nominee Casey Affleck (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Tempestt Bledsoe (The …

Malin Akerman Joins Rock Of Ages

The final piece of the casting puzzle is in place for Rock Of Ages, the Adam Shankman-directed adaptation of the Broadway musical for New Line Cinema. Malin Akerman is set to play the role of Constance, a journalist who intends to write an expose on decadent rocker Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise). After a seduction, and after they sing a duet on the Foreigner song I Want To Know What Love Is, they find out in a naughty bedroom romp. This has been a hot role.

Shankman at first courted Anne Hathaway, who couldn't do it because she landed the Catwoman role in The Dark Knight Rises. Then, he courted Amy Adams, but Shankman again lost out to a superhero when she landed Lois Lane in Man of Steel. Akerman joins Bryan Cranston, who plays the mayor of Los Angeles, his prudish wife that Catherine Zeta-Jones will play, Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Diego Boneta and Julianne Hough.

Not a bad cast for a Chris D'Arienzo musical that started as a small off-Broad…

Will Hugh Jackman Take A Voyage?

Hugh Jackman is director Shawn Levy's first choice to star in 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Voyage, the James Cameron-produced 3D tent pole film. It's early days, but this would give Jackman a big movie to do while he and Fox sort things out with The Wolverine. The film was on a fast track to start production this year, until Darren Aronofsky dropped out as director. They've considered such helmers as Source Code's Duncan Jones and David Slade, but haven't yet hired a helmer. There has also been complications because the Christopher McQuarrie script is set almost entirely in Japan, a country still dealing with the aftermath of the devastating earthquake and monsoon. Pushing the picture back wouldn't hurt Fox that much, because expectations are high for this summer's X-Men: First Class, which would keep the franchise vibrant. It would also keep Jackman and Levy in the Fox fold at a time when their recent collaboration, Real Steel, looks like it could be a…

Rachel Weisz To Become A Witch

Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz is in negotiations to play the villainess in Oz: The Great and Powerful, Disney’s prequel-ish take on The Wizard of Oz tale that stars James Franco and Mila Kunis and is being directed by Sam Raimi.

The movie stars Franco as Oz, a snake oil salesman who finds himself dealing with real magic when his balloon carries him into a fabled land and he runs into genuine witches.

Weisz would play Evanora, a powerful, evil witch who intends to rule the land. She is the sister of Theadora (Kunis) and tries to seduce her to the dark side.

The role would be a change of pace for Weisz, who — despite an eclectic resume ranging from her Oscar-winning work in The Constant Gardener to Wong Kar Wai’s My Blueberry Nights to The Mummy — has never worked on a project of this scale and never tackled what is sure to be a splashy role.

New IMMORTALS Image Of Henry Cavill

Here's a new photo from the upcoming film IMMORTALS starring future Superman Henry Cavill.

The film was directed by Tarsem Singh, and stars Henry Cavill (upcoming Superman Reboot), Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), Luke Evans (Robin Hood), Kellan Lutz (Twilight series), with John Hurt (Hellboy), and Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2)

I still get a feeling from the footage and trailer I have seen of this film before, that's right I think it was called 300.

Kathryn Bigelow To Kill Osama Bin Laden

While Oscar-scooping filmmaking team Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal have been focusing a lot of energy on getting star-laden thriller Triple Frontier into shape, it was announced last December that they were quietly working on another film following a Black Ops team that we described back than as something which could be “so topical it hurts.” Well, it turns out that it’ll be even more topical than they thought since the untitled project follows the very team who ended up killing Osama Bin Laden on Sunday.

With his contacts in military intelligence, Boal had in fact been following the Navy SEAL team that was part of the search for Osama, and Bigelow had planned to turn his eventual script into a film for a while. Now Boal will be feverishly re-writing to add in the raid on the compound in Pakistan where he was eventually found and shot.

According to Variety, Bigelow plans to wait and see how the Arab world reacts to the news before pushing ahead too much further, but she still wants to…

THOR Movie Review By: Joe D

THOR Movie Review By: Joe D
I thought it would be interesting to get an honest review done on THOR by someone who actually has read the comic books and knows the mythology behind the story. And who better to ask than Joe D. Joe has been a comic book fan for life and with all the comic book films coming out this summer you can bet you'll hear from Joe again. So without further adieu Here'ssss Joe.

My name is Joe. John has asked me to review Thor for him from my comic book geek standpoint. Thanks to John, I was able to get an advance screening pass to see Thor this past Saturday morning… and I have to say, the short review is… Go. See. It.

Now… first off, as I mentioned, I’m a comic book geek. I’ve thoroughly been enjoying the onslaught of comic book movies within the last few years. I’m glad comics are finally getting the notoriety they deserve as a story-telling medium. Now, don’t get me wrong… there have been plenty of movies out there that have been mediocre at best when it …

Seven Samurai Remake Has Found It's Director

British helmer Scott Mann has signed on to direct a remake of Japanese pic "Seven Samurai," which is being produced by the Weinstein Co. and Japan's Kurosawa Prods.

Pic, which has an estimated budget of $60 million, will be a contempo interpretation of the 1954 original.

It centers on a town in Northern Thailand that recruits seven paramilitary contractors from around the globe to defend it from an imminent attack.

Mann, who most recently helmed Robert Carlyle and Ving Rhames starrer "The Tournament" -- which gained cult status on both sides of the pond -- will help TWC develop the screenplay, which they hope to shoot later this year.

Scribe John Fusco ("The Forbidden Kingdom," "Young Guns") has been also been developing the project at TWC for 18 months.

Mann recently announced several projects in development under his expanding Mann Made Films banner with U.K. producing partner James Edward Barker, including horror pic "Saint Mary'…

Glee 3D Singing Into Theaters In August

When I first saw a preview of the show at Comic-Con 2009, I just knew this show was going to be big, but 20th Century Fox TV and film divisions have partnered to produce GLEE LIVE! 3D!, a feature film based on the upcoming Glee Live! In Concert! North American tour. Never thought this would happen.

The studio plans to release the film for a two-week engagement starting Aug. 12. Gleeks who were unable to get tickets will be able to catch the concert in 3D. The tour starred 14 members of the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning TV show, and the film will also feature behind-the-scenes moments. The feature will be directed by Fame helmer Kevin Tancharoen.

Given the rabid following that Ryan Murphy's show has, this seems like as good as a cash machine for the studio. It worked for Sony on the Michael Jackson documentary This Is It! (whose limited run was extended, something that always seems to happen), and Paramount cleaned up with the Justin Bieber documentary Never Say Never.
