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 for working from a Besson-penned script) and corporate thriller Paranoia alongside Liam Hemsworth.

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 sense that Warner Bros. would look to a classic Justice League comic storyline to launch the film. Christopher Nolan had great success adapting classic Batman tales with a new twist in his Dark Knight saga, and it stands to reason they'd emulate that model moving forward with something of this scope. There are a lot of good stories to build on, and it gives the fans a familiar thread that doesn't feel like the series has been gutted for the big screen.

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 George Lucas took with Episodes I-III, Jackson sets his sights on the prequel The Hobbit and the tales contained in J.R.R. Tolkein's book. Set 60 years before Fellowship of the Ring, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman, Sherlock) receives a visitor in Gandalf The Gray (Ian McKellen, X-Men series), who is looking for someone to join him on an adventure. Miffed by the odd request, Bilbo doesn't realize that Gandalf has secretly recruited him into a highly dangerous enterprise: the liberation of an ancient castle and its gold supply, which was commandeered by a dragon. The result scattered the dwarfs who owned the castle and its contents, leaving them leaderless and destitute. Eventually, a troupe of dwarfs descend on Bilbo's home to ravage his food supply and entice him into joining them. It's one of the movie's funniest scenes, as the home-spun Hobbit witnesses the insanity of a dwarf dinner and reacts to a lengthy contract ushering him into service. After initially refusing their invitation, Bilbo decides to join the expedition, leaving The Shire for danger and glory. It's not readily apparent why he makes this bold choice, so his decision feels rushed and out of place. The dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage, Captain America: TFA) doesn't think Bilbo has the thievery skills for which Gandalf has recruited him, and Gandalf doesn't know why he's invited the hobbit either. Together, our trio and Thorin's men run into all sorts of chicanery, brought on by the appearance of The Necromancer, who has unleashed Orcs and poisoned the forest and its animals.


If little of this sounds like Tolkein's original text, you would be right. In an effort to extend the much shorter book into a trilogy, Director Jackson and Writers Guillermo del Toro (originally tasked to direct Hobbit) and Philippa Boyens (LOTR) have filled the pages with character re-writes and appearances that were never part of the tale. Added are Elfen scenes with Elrond (Hugo Weaving, The Matrix) and the beautiful Galadriel (Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth), plus a visit from the soon-to-be-dark magician Sauramon (Christopher Lee, Star Wars: Episode 2). Thorin's brooding warrior king (originally a comical figure in Tolkein's book) is strangely familiar to Viggo Mortensen's Aragorn, raising the question of why Jackson drew such similarities instead of re-tooling the character into something better. But that's not all. The bloated and overstretched story is filled with too many false endings that ooze with prologues,council meetings, and a propped-up blood feud that makes the lead Orc Azog look more like a local thug than a menacing creature we should fear. Much of the film's nearly three hours feels this contrived, leaving us to wonder whether the imminent Extended Edition will contain even more bloat.


One of the most unique aspects of The Hobbit will certainly create the greatest debate: the decision to present it on IMAX and 3D screens in the new 48 frames per second. Every Hollywood film has been offered in the standard 24fps, which allowed directors plenty of leeway if their sets or special effects were not up to snuff. This new rate, while exceptionally clear, takes some getting used to, especially if you're closer to the screen. The other issue it causes can be seen in action scenes, which tend to look cheap if the CGI is not up to snuff. Here, The Hobbit also suffers, scrubbing the CGI animals and baddies of every bit of grain to create an unnatural look. Jackson is at his best when he keeps the humans away from the green screen, and audiences might be better off seeing the film in the tradition frame rate. Perhaps our eyes are not quite ready for 48fps, but some of Jackson's missteps don't help Hobbit either.

And even with all of this against it, The Hobbit is still worth watching. Whether it's the familiar and diverse environment of New Zealand, the sweeping images of our heroes trekking over mountains, or Composer Howard Shore's large and beautiful soundtrack, The Hobbit feels like a house alive during the holidays: vibrant, encompassing, and welcoming. I had the same feeling after watching JJ Abrams' Star Trek, partly due to my love of Original Trek, even though I had issues with it as well. The years between franchises have been very good to the digitized Gollum (Andy Serkis, Rise of the Planet of Apes). His riddle scene with Bilbo is almost straight from the book, and it's one of the film's best sequences. The story of how Bilbo secures the ring and the madness which consumes Gollum will no doubt become one of the franchise's most enduring, as Jackson executes it with perfect precision. Whether it's Bilibo's sweet naivety - played exceptionally well by Freeman - or the grim and powerful Gandolf, fans will enjoy seeing these characters once more; Blanchett and Weaving are always terrific, and Armitage carries off Thorin quite well. There really isn't a bad role here, yet none which stand out. For the uninitiated, the slow start and lack of memorable action sequences will probably bore them and the children they might drag along.

In the end, The Hobbit suffers from several issues that it tries to overcome, but not without boring uninitiated audiences in the meantime. Short on sweeping action sequences, overflowing with a dizzying amount of dwarfs - none of which you will either remember or care about afterwards - and filled with far too much dialogue, The Hobbit limps along before getting somewhat interesting in Act 2. From there, it's still uneven but at least some action arrives to divert our attention. The high frame rate in 3D and IMAX might make some queasy, so be ready for an epic that's good but not great. But go see it anyways, not to fill up Jackson's pockets with cash, but because it's Lord of the Rings, the return of a franchise that's become as revered as any since the modern era, even if this version is not quite as good. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is rated PG-13 for intense fantasy action and frightening images, and has a runtime of 169 minutes.

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 recently produced the Wahlberg-starring crime thriller Contraband for Universal and are developing a pair of projects for the studio: the action comedy Bait and Switch and thriller The Disciple Program.

Herman's credits include Conviction, which Silver Pictures is producing at Warner Bros., and Rites of Men, which he sold as an original screenplay to Universal. Both of these scripts were on the Black List.

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, including best friend M (Rob Corddry)?

See all the poster after the Jump...







As R and Julie bond, the threats mount both from the freakish “Boney” zombies and from her father, General Grigio (John Malkovich), commander of the local human camp and a fervent believer in slaughtering any zombies that come near his compound.

PACIFIC RIM Trailer. Kaiju vs Robots

Looks like this week is trailer week. Here is the trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC 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

THE LAST STAND :60 Trailer

Lionsgate's :60 trailer for THE LAST STAND is bringing out the big guns. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Johnny Knoxville EXPLODE on to the big screen in this shoot em up trailer. This action-packed film has it all…escaped fugitives, explosions, car chases. THE LAST STAND will keep audiences on the edge of their seats!

This all-star cast includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker, Eduardo Noriega, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzmán, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford and Genesis Rodriguez. Directed by Kim Jee-woon and written by Andrew Knauer and Jeffrey Nachmanoff.

After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.

With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Peter Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez’ path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever.

At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.
