New IRON MAN 3 Poster & Teaser Trailer

Teasers for trailers appear to be a marketing trend that is sticking around, at least until studios figure out how to shoot ads directly into our brains. But when the latest short tease offers a glimpse at new Iron Man 3 footage, we’re not going to complain too much. Check it out below.

It’s all part of the campaign around the film’s Super Bowl TV spot, which will debut on Sunday during the game.

The Super Bowl has been a big market for short film trailers for several years now, and the studios spend millions buying ad time. This year, we can expect to see spots for Star Trek Into Darkness, The Lone Ranger, The Fast And The Furious 6, Oz The Great And Powerful and Oblivion. Plus World War Z will apparently have something during the pre-game segment. At this pint, we’d like to have seen a zombie half time show…

But back to Iron Man 3. In addition to the spot tease, Marvel has also put a new poster online, which shows that Tony Stark will really have a very, very bad day in the film.

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH in San Francisco

Win your tickets to see an advance screening for ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH! The screening is on February 9, 2013 - 11:00 AM @ AMC Metreon in San Francisco.


ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH is an upcoming 3D computer animated family film produced by Rainmaker Entertainment, and directed by Cal Brunker.


The 3D animated family comedy catapults moviegoers to planet Baab where admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero to the blue alien population. A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. When BASA's no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary's warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission. But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendish trap set by the evil Shanker (William Shatner), it's up to scrawny, risk-adverse Gary to do the real rescuing. As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure-hungry son Kip.

Duncan Jones To Direct Warcraft Film

Duncan Jones is taking on Legendary Pictures' adaptation of the popular video game universe.

Duncan Jones is making the jump to big-budget tentpole movies, signing on to direct Warcraft, Legendary Pictures’ live-action adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s video game universe.

Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing for Legendary along with Blizzard and Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Alex Gartner.

Taking an almost kitchen-sink approach to fantasy, Warcraft, which has grown to be one of the most popular multiplayer online role-playing games out there, is part fantasy, part science fiction and — depending on the game you’re playing — includes elements such as dragons and orcs, zombies and werewolves, and aliens and spaceships. Legendary is keeping its script, written by Charles Leavitt, under wraps. The Warner Bros.-based production and finance outfit is eyeing a fall 2013 start and a 2015 release.

Jones’ producing partner, Stuart Fenegan, will executive produce while Chris Metzen will co-produce for Blizzard. Warcraft is a big jump up in terms of scope and scale for Jones, the filmmaker son of David Bowie known for his thoughtful sci-fi work.

Jones made his feature debut writing and directing 2009's Moon, the well-regarded low-key indie sci-fi drama that starred Sam Rockwell and cost about $1 million to make. He followed that up with Source Code, Summit’s 2011 time-travel thriller that starred Jake Gyllenhaal and cost about $35 million to make. Warcraft is expected to have a budget north of $100 million.

Roven most recently produced The Dark Knight Rises and is a producer on Man of Steel, both of which involved Legendary. Atlas is in pre-production on David O. Russell’s follow-up to Silver Linings Playbook, an untitled project that will star Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner. Production begins this March.

Legendary is prepping for the July 12 release of Guillermo del Toro’s monsters vs. mechas tentpole Pacific Rim.

Disney's Paperman Full Short Is Online

Despite the fact that it arrived in November across the pond, Disney’s latest ‘toon Wreck-It Ralph has had to cool its digital heels until the school holidays over here. But if you’ve heard good things about the short film Paperman that plays before Ralph, and you're itching to see it, you’re in luck: Disney has put it online, and you can see it below.

It might be part of the studio’s strategy now that John Kahrs’ film has been nominated in the Animated Short Oscar category, but it’s still great to have the film where more people can watch it, because Paperman is really something special. Kahrs and his team have blended computer and hand drawn animation for a beautiful little tale of boy-meets-girl that takes place in a '40s-style universe but looks like nothing you’ve seen before.

WARM BODIES Review. Refreshing & Hilarious Experience

WARM BODIES Review
By: MattInRC

As you might have read, horror flicks aren't my thing - weighed down by canon and generally offering nothing of worth, characters in Possesion or Sinister merely exist long enough before succumbing to a death we've seen time and time before. The same goes with zombie films - I mean, how many different ways have we've seen a human perish under the grasp of a brain-eating corpse? But WARM BODIES is different, taking everything we know about the genre and turning it on its ear, delivering a refreshing and hilarious experience along the way.


At first, the life of zombie R (Nicholas Hoult, X-Men: First Class), seems pretty boring: he staggers around an abandoned airport, seemingly content to bump into other brain-eaters who assist him in hunting humans when the need to feed takes over. He can't remember his real name, nor anything else about his past, other than he might have been lazy and perhaps a perpetual flake. But something's different about this red-hooded teenager: he's aware of his predicament and constantly shares funny quips about it. Moreover, R is a Wall-E type hoarder, adding trinkets such as snow globes and classic albums to a commercial jet stuck on the tarmac. These aren't the qualities of a textbook zombie, but who's around to notice? Meanwhile, the surviving humans have walled themselves inside a dilapidated city, convinced that zombies and their more aggressive counterparts - called bonies - will never return to normal.


One day, R and his friend M (Rob Corddry, Childrens Hospital) shuffle outside to feed but meet up with a squad of human teenagers led by Julie (Theresa Palmer, The Sorcerer's Apprentice); the result is bloodbath that sees her boyfriend Perry (Dave Franco, 21 Jump Street) killed by R, who immediately begins to consume his brain. In doing so, R takes on Perry's memories, allowing him to re-live a happier time before the apocalypse. It's here that his love affair with Julie begins. Yes, a zombie falls in love with a human. While hiding Julie in his plane, R begins to realize that his feelings for Julie are causing him to revert back to being human, which freaks Julie out but also causes her to re-think the human condition. Together, our couple tries to return Julie home while R continues his remarkable transformation back to humanity.


The pic keeps gross brain-eating to a minimum, only showing it only long enough to serve the larger love story. Writer/Director Jonathan Levine (50/50) weaves an impressively-funny tale, centering things around Palmer and Hoult and providing plenty of screen time for the audience to get to know these characters. Even Julie's gun-toting father General Grigio (John Malkovich, Con Air) comes alive in the few scenes he's in, reminding us why we like ourselves a little Malk in our movies. Music plays a big role in Warm Bodies, as R turns up the jams to serenade Julie, giving new meanings to John Waite's Missing You and Bruce Springsteen's Hungry Heart. These re-considerations are pleasant exercises for the audience, winning us over with its intelligent take on what's always been a decidedly darker genre. Bodies reminds me of 2012's Safety Not Guaranteed, another terrific indie film that blended the oft-used idea of time travel with the insane assumption that some people might actually consider the endeavor possible. Purist zombie lovers will abhor how easily Levine bends decades of canon, but it's all in good fun. In this case, putting the blinders on might go a long way to enjoying things, especially if you're dragged to the theater as part of a lost bet or other marital obligations.



Warm Bodies doesn't pretend to be a disgusting zombie film, and frankly we're OK with that. Instead, its Romeo & Juliet love story mixed with an independent comedic element screams black humor all the way. The result is a surprisingly entertaining flick that should bring the more delicate crowd to the theater to check out this excellent date-night fare. We may never see another January like this again, so enjoy the zombie love while you can. Warm Bodies is rated PG-13 for brain eating and has a runtime of 97 minutes.

BULLET TO THE HEAD Review. It's A Fun Ride

BULLET TO THE HEAD Review
By: MattInRC

Closing out an amazingly productive January, BULLET TO THE HEAD is a typical but enjoyable 80's/90's action flick.


As we close out the month of January, one cannot help but remark upon the many quality releases that have graced what's usually a terrible month for films. Whether it was Gangster Squad, Broken City, or Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, January has provided us with a surprisingly diverse and enjoyable list of new releases. Among them is the Sylvester Stallone action flick Bullet to the Head, a brainless but enjoyable action flick that's his best in a long time.


Jimmy Bobo (Sylvester Stallone, Expendables series) is a former soldier turned hitman who's never known life outside of killing and jail time. When his partner (Jon Seda) is sliced up by the deadly hitman Keegan (Jason Momoa, Stargate: Atlantis), Bobo joins forces with Washington DC cop Sung Kwon (Sung Kang, 2 Fast 2 Furious) who's also looking for the killer of his partner. Their unlikely alliance immediately nets all sorts of one-liners about Kwon's Korean background and Jimmy's old school ways of doing things. Soon they not only discover that their mutual suspect is Keegan, but that he's the strong arm for a deep conspiracy lead by two New Orleans sleazeballs, Morel (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Bourne Identity) and Baptiste (Christian Slater, Broken Arrow). They intend to buy entire sections of post-Katrina real estate on the cheap by bribing officials and police officers, while eliminating anyone who might stand in their way. As Bobo and Keegan edge closer to a final battle, Kwon must choose his loyalties in this ever-shifting landscape of lies and violence for those who don't fall into line.


Director Walter Hill (48 Hours) creates a gritty, believable world of violence and organized mayhem that compliments Stallone's characteristic mumbling and constant scowling. Yet, Stallone is clearly in control of every scene, as if the world still revolved around this aging hero. The result feels like something from 1989, when Tango and Cash helped to re-create the classic buddy film. Along with Hill's expert eye, Editor Timothy Alverson (Con Air) constructs several excellent 'dossier' segments - as Kwon uses his DC connections to track down Keegan and crew - while ending the film with a memorable slo-mo fight scene.



But make no mistake: there's not much more to Writer Alessandro Camon's flimsy conspiracy set up, which is fine considering the fun he conjures up after all the cards are laid out. From the obligatory car chases, interrogations gone wrong, and blown up safe houses, Camon (Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call) and Hill effectively throw just about every classic ingredient into the stew. Composer Steve Mazzaro (along with TDKR-man Hans Zimmer) forges a rock soundtrack that compliments the gritty New Orleans setting. Making a film better suited for the 90's can bring all sorts of potential problems to the surface, and several do bubble up here, including the whimpy performance of Kang and the B-grade acting of Stallone's surrogate daughter as well as the two dirty New Orleans cops. On the other hand, the badass Momoa demonstrates why he needs to be in every action flick - his physical presence fits perfectly against Stallone's anti-hero persona; and he commands the room every time Hill presents him. Hopefully, better roles will come his way, as I believe he's the future of action films. For now, Bullet is a fun ride, using most of the performances as little more than excuses for target practice and big-budget action set pieces, which is really what every film of the genre should seek to achieve.

Bullet to the Head could quietly disappear once February rolls around, but I hope audiences don't automatically write it off. Does it redefine the action genre? Not really. Does it complete a typical 80's/90's action film checklist? Absolutely. Moreover, it proves that Stallone can still create watchable action fare without struggling to utter lines or look tired along the way (see: Old Man Arnold). For that fact alone, Bullet is worth an afternoon matinee with the dudes or perhaps as part of a man date involving the consumption of cooked meats. Believe me, you'll feel more like a man after catching this surprising flick. Bullet to the Head is rated R for nudity, language, and gun violence and has a runtime of 88 minutes.

IRON MAN 3 Possible Cameo. Deep Space Suit

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED SPOILER

Robert Downey Jr. said, via total film, for us not to expect Thor, Cap, Banner, and the rest of the gang to show up in IRON MAN 3.

But the guys over at Latino-Review scooped another exclusive.

“The whole Avengers thing was such a relief and such a confirmation of Kevin Feige’s vision for this all along,” “As Kevin has put it, the next step after that is to bring in someone like Shane Black and – without pretending that the Avengers don’t exist – find a way to go back to a kind of re-investigation of Tony’s world. “He thought it would be, one, fun for the audience and, two, would rock in a different way than The Avengers. But we can’t help it – everywhere you look now in every Marvel movie there are opportunities where certain new pals of his could be useful. So they’re in the atmosphere, so to speak, but I wouldn’t expect to see them on the ground in this one.”

Toy company Funko dropped pictures of their upcoming Pop! Vinyl figures for Iron Man 3. One of them is for Iron Man ‘Deep Space Suit

According to LR, at the end of IRON MAN 3, Tony actually does go up into space to hook up with the Guardians of The Galaxy where I also hear he appears at the end of that movie as well.

The Muppets...Again Details

Ladies and gentlemuppets, the first extensive details on Muppets sequel The Muppets...Again! have been announced and it's all sounding pretty good to us. We already knew that Tina Fey, Ty Burrell and Ricky Gervais were among the cast - but now we know a little more about what they'll be doing.


According to the official synopsis, this film, "takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theatres in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais."

As we already knew, Tina Fey plays Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Modern Family's Ty Burrell is Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (so he's Italian? Wait - German?). That's along with the regulars like Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie and the rest.

The good news continues with the word that Bret McKenzie will once again be composing songs for the film, and the fact that it will be shooting in London - Pinewood, in particular - as well as in Hollywood.

Bobin said, "It’s great to be back working with the Muppets. Some of them even remember my name occasionally now. As for the movie, it’s a tip of the hat to the old-school crime capers of the ’60s, but featuring a frog, a pig, a bear and a dog—no panthers, even pink ones—along with the usual Muppet-y mix of mayhem, music and laughs."

Kermit added, "This movie takes us places we’ve never been before. And trust me—this frog has never seen so much international flavour. I think audiences will eat it up—the entertainment, that is."

Entourage Film Is Green Lighted

Aquaman star Vinnie Chase is back, baby. Warner Bros has tonight given the green light on a movie version of Entourage, the HBO series that ran from 2004-2011. That gives a reprise for the inside Hollywood exploits of the up and coming film star, his manager and agent, his under-appreciated TV actor brother and the childhood pal/driver who form his inner circle.

The film will be directed by series creator Doug Ellin, who wrote the screenplay and who exec produced the series with Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson. Deals are starting to be made with Adrian Grenier, who played Chase, Kevin Connolly, who played his manager Eric “E” Murphy, Kevin Dillon, who played the actor’s brother Johnny Drama, Jerry Ferrara, who played their entrepreneurial driver Turtle, and Jeremy Piven, who played the show’s iconic type A talent agent Ari Gold. I’m sure Drama’s agent Lloyd (Rex Lee), E’s girl Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui), his management partner Scott (Scott Caan), and their quirky director collaborator Billy Walsh (Rhys Coiro) and Ari’s agency partner Barbara Miller (Beverly D’Angelo) will all be in the mix, along with a swarm of real Hollywood talent, playing themselves.

That’s about as far as the studio has gotten at this point, and there is no start date. I for one loved the series ending, in which Ari finally gave up his career and pledged his devotion to his long suffering gorgeous wife (Perry Reeves), only to get a last minute phone call offering him his dream job of running a film studio, knowing he’ll lose her if he says yes. Love to see how Ari negotiates himself out of that hell.

Watch AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT Official Trailer & See It This Friday Theaters

A bad economy finds advertising exec Roberto (José Mota) suddenly jobless and unable to support or confide in his doting wife, played by Salma Hayek, in IFC's new film, AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT. When he finds himself coincidentally in the middle of a wild media storm, he plans to take advantage of the situation and turn his newfound fame into fortune—and he will stop at nothing to provide for his family, no matter the cost. This unforgettable social satire is the latest from beloved cult director Alex de la Iglesia.

Roberto (famed Spanish comic José Mota) once had a promising career in advertising. But now out of work during the economic downturn, he struggles to keep his family afloat and their dire situation a secret from his adoring wife Luisa (Salma Hayek). After yet another dead end interview, it seems like reality will come crashing down on Roberto – until a freak accident places him at the center of a wild media storm. Realizing his opportunity, Roberto hires a brazen agent to help him leverage his new found fame into fortune, but Luisa begins to worry about what lengths Roberto will go to for his family’s security.

The new film from beloved cult director Alex de la Iglesia goes into fresh territory for the daring director, a dark comedy/social satire that also works as a deeply felt drama about the devotion of a husband and father. A wild riff on manhood in the modern media world, As Luck Would Have It is a skewed take on the strange world we live in.

Check out the official trailer and be sure to catch AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT, opening Friday in select theaters, Cable VOD, SundanceNOW and other digital platforms.

KNIFE FIGHT - SundanceNOW Giveaway

Time for another giveaway. Thanks to SundanceNOW, we are able to give one lucky winner a chance to watch KNIFE FIGHT starring Rob Lowe, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eric McCormickJamie Chung, David Harbour and Julie Bowen from the comfort of their home before it hits theaters.


We had the chance to watch KNIFE FIGHT last month at a screening in Sacramento. Here is our review for the film.

All you have to do is leave a comment on Facebook why you should win this screening.

If a political candidate is personally flawed, but stands to make a positive difference in millions of lives, would you help him win? That question looms over the life of “true believer” Paul Turner (Rob Lowe), a savvy strategist sharply maneuvering politicians out of scandal and into public office. With the help of a bright young assistant (Jamie Chung) and a seedy operative (Richard Schiff), Turner spins every news cycle and a shrewd reporter (Julie Bowen) on behalf of his clients: a philandering Kentucky governor (Eric McCormick), a blackmailed California senator (David Harbour), and an idealistic doctor turned gubernatorial candidate (Carrie-Anne Moss). When the ugly side of Turner’s work begins to haunt him, he learns that even in the bloodiest of battles, sometimes you have to fight clean. KNIFE FIGHT is a smart, crackling, comedic “inside look” at what happens behind closed doors in modern American politics. Two-time Academy Award-winning director Bill Guttentag teamed with renowned political consultant Chris Lehane to create this political story for the new century. As the November election approaches, KNIFE FIGHT pulls back the curtain on the “real truth” of the political

Paul Giamatti Could Play "The Rhino" In The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Paul Giamatti is in talks to join The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as the villain known as The Rhino.

The duo would bolster an already impressive cast. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx is portraying bad guy Electro, Shailene Woodley is Mary Jane Watson, and Dane DeHaan is Harry Osborne.

The Rhino first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #41 in 1966 as a thug from a Soviet Bloc country who wore a superhuman suit that made him invulnerable while giving him superstrength and superspeed. It also had a deadly horn on top.

In more recent comics, he became a sympathetic figure who found himself allying with Spider-Man. The role is a dream part for Giamatti, who in the past has said The Rhino was one of his favorite characters when he was a boy.

“I thought Rhino was the greatest thing when I was a little kid,” he told ShowbizSpy in March 2011. “It was a guy who was basically in this rhinoceros outfit, and I always thought, ‘Why don’t they have The Rhino in one of their movies.’ But maybe The Rhino wasn’t that big of a deal for anybody but me. … If they ever go with The Rhino, I would be ready and waiting.” Around the same time, he also talked about the character on Conan: “The Rhino was fantastic," he said. "He was, like, a Russian guy. He was real fast, and he hit stuff real hard."

The sequel, being directed by Marc Webb, is eyeing a February production start. Giamatti most recently appeared in Rock of Ages and is shooting the JFK drama Parkland with Zac Efron and Jacki Weaver.

CW Still Holding Out Hope For Wonder Woman Prequel Amazon

The CW still has hope for Wonder Woman prequel Amazon this pilot season.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the project isn't completely off the table. The network, sources say, wasn't happy with the script and is awaiting a final version from writer Allan Heinberg (Grey's Anatomy). The CW, which already has picked up eight pilots this season (on par with last year), is still holding a slot open for Amazon, with the project still in contention for fall 2013-14, midseason or beyond.

The drama is described as an origin story about Wonder Woman's alter ego, Diana of Themyscira, and focuses on the character as a budding hero. The project had strong buzz going into pilot season, with the network already eyeing potential leads. Talking to reporters in January at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, CW president Mark Pedowitz said his development team was waiting to see the script and was "busy casting Diana."

"Hopefully the script works the way we want," Pedowitz told THR, noting that the origin story of Diana Prince would be set in the present day -- instead of the character's original World War II-era origin -- with the network looking at both new and established actresses for the part. Pedowitz suggested that his team would continue to explore other DC properties as well. Wonder Woman has had a string of bad luck at the broadcast networks. David E. Kelley tried unsuccessfully to bring the franchise to NBC in 2011 with Friday Night Lights' Adrianne Palicki attached. Despite landing a pilot order, NBC ultimately passed on the drama that featured Diana as a businesswoman/shy woman.

"As well crafted and contemporized as [the Kelley pilot] was, it was a big and radical shift for viewers to embrace this new idea -- and that may, to some degree, have had to do with why it didn’t make it," Warner Bros. TV president Peter Roth told THR in 2011, noting at the time that the character's future at another network was to be determined. The CW's effort marked the latest in a long line of big- and small-screen takes on the famed heroine, following the 1975-79 TV series starring Lynda Carter. In 2005, Warner Bros. announced Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) would write and direct a film adaptation, which never materialized.

The comics, meanwhile, continue to reboot the hero, most recently connecting her romantically with Superman after a short-lived costume change that evolved Wonder Woman's costume from a sexy one-piece to include pants.

No 3D Release For Star Wars Episode II Or III

Deadline is reporting that for now from Lucasfilm‘s promotional partners who are telling me the studio now owned by Disney wants to focus only on “rebooting the franchise” with three new Star Wars films. This surprising decision follows the underwhelming box office performance of Episode I: The Phantom Menace re-released in 3D in February 2012.

It debuted to only $23M domestically but maybe even more importantly hardcore fans felt it was yet another craven cash grab by George Lucas. Back in September 2010, Lucasfilm and then-distributor Fox announced that all 6 films in the Star Wars franchise would be converted to 3D. Episode II: Attack Of The Clones (first released on May 16, 2002) was to hit theaters in 3D on September 20th, 2013, while Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith (first released on May 19, 2005) was to play in 3D on October 11, 2013.

This news comes just days after Disney confirmed that J.J. Abrams will direct the new Star Wars: Episode VII scheduled to be released in 2015. It’s the first new Star Wars movie since 2005. Michael Arndt is writing the script. Disney bought Lucasfilm in October 2012 for $4 billion, with the Star Wars franchise obviously the jewel in the crown. At the time, Disney CEO Bob Iger said three more Star Wars films were in the pipeline.

Bradley Cooper On For Lance Armstrong Film

Pouring water over its head and puffing out its cheeks, JJ Abrams' Lance Armstrong movie is in hot pursuit of a certain other project the filmmaker has heading to the screen. Talking to ET, Abrams let slip that his Bad Robot studio is now in informal talks with Bradley Cooper about playing the lie-peddling peddler.

“[Cooper] sent me an email and we've been talking,” Abrams told ET. This won’t come as a big surprise to anyone who heard Cooper express his interest in the role earlier this month. “I think he's fascinating,” the actor told BBC News. “What a fascinating character.”

The film will be based on Cycle of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong, a book proposal by New York Times sportswriter Juliet Macur, who has followed the cyclist for ten murky years of triumph and transfusions. The story, which, as the title implies, is set firmly at the 'downfall' end of the story, was optioned by Bad Robot and Paramount in mid-January.

With the tenacious Macur providing the portrayal, don't expect this to be a soft-soap biopic of the disgraced athlete. It could be an interesting bit of casting for Cooper, who, with Limitless, has interesting previous in exploring the power of dodgy pharmaceuticals.

Bryan Singer Talks X-Men: Days Of Future Past

In the new issue of Empire magazine they spoke to Bryan Singer about the work he's doing on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and he had a few tidbits to give us on what's in store for his prequel-sequel. "It's epic. I don't think people realise how big this movie's going to be. We get to bring both casts together."

But, Singer assures us, it's still going to be coherent. "We've cracked it in a way that it makes sense. I had a two-hour conversation with James Cameron about time travel, string theory, multiverses and all that. You have to create your rules and stick wtih them. That's why Terminator and Back To The Future work so well. And there are certain mechanisms in X-Men, certain powers, perceptions and characters, that make this possible."

Start speculating now on which powers and which characters he means by that! His answer might depend on how closely he's sticking to the original comic.

"It has a lot of aspects of the comic. The actual comic of Days Of Future Past had a whole ton of stuff going on, so it’s like any of these things; you have to distill it. But I think the fans will be pleased that some of the most exciting parts of Days Of Future Past are going to be connected to this movie."

We also asked how much attention he's paying to the other X-movies, which have at this point created a somewhat tangled chronological web. "I’m taking into account every movie – I’m not just grabbing my first two movies and First Class and smashing them together. I’m taking into account the entire universe as it’s been laid out so far on the screen, and really respecting it and trying to work with that. People took things in various directions, so there’s some clean-up. But ultimately I’m not just ignoring them either."

Singer assured fans that he will be making his casting announcements directly on his Twitter account, as we saw this weekend with the news that Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin and Ellen Page are returning. "I’ll be using Twitter as an avenue. I think Twitter is an amazing thing. Very often something gets out there in the rumour-sphere, and people start building up an impression of something that might not be right. So what I want to do is just little by little drop out whatever information is official."

Finally, we asked if there'd be a repeat of First Class' terrific use of the PG-13 F-bomb. "We’re going to have another one in this one. We have another one coming up!"

Compliance DVD Review. It's An Underground Gem

Compliance DVD Review
By: MattInRC

The disturbing Compliance seeks to prove that humans really are as stupid and gullible as we think.

On the surface, 2012's Compliance might seem like the perfect example of an independent film that should never have been made: no A-list Hollywood actors and an unknown director in Craig Zobel. In fact, so few people responded to Compliance that it was quietly pulled after making just $316,000 in just 21 theaters; but dig deeper and one realizes that its performance was in no way a slant as to its quality. Compliance is an underground gem, demonstrating the depths to which some people will blindly follow authority, all in the name of protecting the public good.


Set at an Ohio fast-food restaurant, the manager Sandra (Ann Dowd) and her employee Becky (Dreama Walker) don't like each other and fail to get along - it's a case of mutual needs meeting at a sharp point. During an especially busy day at the restaurant, Sandra receives a phone call from a man (Pat Healy) claiming to be police officer Daniels, who states that Becky has stolen money from a customer. Sandra is told that the police are conducting an investigation at Becky's apartment and need Sandra to detain and question her. Although Becky denies any involvement, Sandra escorts her to the office in the back of the store and - with Daniels on the phone - begins to interrogate Becky. After getting nowhere, Daniels orders Sandra to conduct a strip search, leaving Becky with only a work apron to cover her body. With her clothes now dumped (Daniels tells Sandra that the police will be by soon to test them for marijuana), Becky is forced to endure sexual humiliation from Sandra's fiancee Van (Bill Campt). Unwilling to question the caller's identity for fear of arrest, Sandra and Becky become puppets for Healy's growing list of sexual demands.  


If this seems like a perfect porn plot, think again. Director and Writer Zobel does a fine job of upping the tension by questioning the mindset of semi-intelligent but gullible people who under normal circumstances would never do such offensive things to one another. Compliance claims it's inspired by actual events (supposedly 70 of these throughout the country have occurred), and reaction at last year's Sundance saw moviegoers walk out of the theater. Certainly, Compliance is not for everyone; those of you who find discomfort in embarrassing social situations are advised to stay far away from it. But, if you have the guts to stick through this little gem, you'll be all the better for it. It painfully demonstrates the lengths some people will take to protect the public good, even if it means becoming complicit along the way. The result is hard to watch and might result in its audience desiring a shower afterwards. But its slow burn could be worth the pain. Compliance is rated R for nudity and language and has a runtime of 90 minutes.
