Amber Heard Has Three Days To Kill

Three Days To Kill boasts a high-concept plot spawned by Luc Besson and co-writer Adi Hasak and McG seated in the director’s chair, and the action thriller has already scored Kevin Costner and Hailee Steinfeld. Amber Heard is the latest to join their ranks.

Kill will star Costner as Ethan Runner, a Secret Service agent who is shocked to discover he’s dying. But then he’s tempted with the offer of a possibly wondrous drug that might just extend his life and give him more time with his daughter (Steinfeld).

There are just a couple of teeny, tiny complications, though: he has to go on one final mission as a condition of taking the treatment and, oh yes, the drug gives him incredibly weird hallucinations which will make carrying out the job that much more complicated.

Heard is set to play the woman who dangles the offer of the miracle drug in front of our hero. Last seen in The Rum Diary, she’ll next crop up in Robert Rodriguez action sequel Machete Kills (which should aptly prepare her f…

Justice League Story Line Revealed?

That big-screen Justice League flick might still be looking for a director, but writer Will Beale is hard at work on the script—and rumor has it this is the storyline he's adapting.

Latino Review reports that Beale is looking to some classic 1980s Justice League comics for inspiration, specifically Justice League of America issues 183-185, written by Gerry Conway and illustrated by George Perez.

The storyline centers on a plot by Darkseid to destroy the Earth, which at least meshes with other rumors that have hinted Darkseid could be the story's Big Bad.

Here's Latino Review's description:

"In a nutshell, plotwise, the three issue arc involves Darkseid planning the destruction of Earth by blasting it with a ray that'll move Apokolips into the Earth's place. Sounds like some Armageddonesque end of the Earth as we know it kind of stakes fit for summer tentpole event film if you ask me." Of course, this is still a rumor at the moment, but it only makes s…

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review. Is It Worth The Journey?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review By: MattInRC
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is big on imagery, long on talk, and falls short in a couple of critical areas. But go see it anyways.


Upon watching the first trailer for Fall's highly anticipated The Hobbit, I was hesitant to grant it any credit beyond mere curiosity. Its older brother, the incredible Lord of the Rings trilogy, occupies a special place on most filmgoers' top 20 lists. The series touched audiences in a way that still reverberates throughout Hollywood: one cannot watch a Medieval war-epic made after 2003 without seeing LOTR's footprints somewhere. It was with this pedigree that a slow and confusing trailer appeared earlier this year, touching off speculation that perhaps Director Peter Jackson's lightning in a bottle had been spent. And while The Hobbit is slow at parts and missing any memorable action sequences, its heart still beats with the resounding pulse of Middle-earth.


Much like the path…

Mark Wahlberg To Produce The Hacker Is Watching

Jonathan Herman will write the screenplay, which centers on an anonymous, ruthless, highly skilled hacker who targets the student body of a large suburban high school.

Call it a password-protected project.

Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson have set up an untitled hacker film at Universal Pictures that is loosely based on a recent GQ article titled "The Hacker Is Watching."

Jonathan Herman, who most recently wrote an update of the Alfred Hitchcock classic The Birds for Universal, will write the screenplay, which centers on an anonymous, ruthless, highly skilled hacker who targets the student body of a large suburban high school. David Kushner penned the true story, which ran in GQ's January 2012 issue.

Wahlberg and Levinson, whose recent producing collaborations span film and television and include the HBO hits Boardwalk Empire and Entourage, will produce the youth-driven thriller.

The untitled hacker project strengthens the pair's ties with the studio. They also rece…

New Character Poster Warm Bodies

From the looks of everything we've seen so far (including the latest trailer you can watch again at the bottom of the page), the adaptation of Isaac Marion’s apocalyptic zom-rom-com novel Warm Bodies is set to give the romantic comedy genre a good tweak and breathe some life into zombie movies. Summit has put some new posters up for the film, which you can see in the gallery below.


Warm Bodies, directed by 50/50’s Jonathan Levine, finds zombie R (Nicholas Hoult) un-living in a world where the undead outnumber the living. He and his rotting contemporaries regularly raid the fugitive pockets of human survivors, lured by their warm, fleshy delights and focused on eating their brains.


But on one of the scouting missions, R meets and engages with Julie (Teresa Palmer) and something unusual happens: R starts to feel something. Could it be that his lingering humanity is starting to return as he tentatively tries to woo this woman? And what will the rest of his zombie brethren think, incl…

PACIFIC RIM Trailer. Kaiju vs Robots

Looks like this week is trailer week. Here is the trailer for Guillermo del Toro’sPACIFIC RIM.


When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes–a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)–who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

PACIFIC RIM opens July 12th, 2013
