I: So this is, number one it's a fascinating premise to begin with, had you read the book before or was Andrew's (director/writer) script your first introduction?

Max: I read half the book before the audition, finished it after the audition and re read it before filming.

I: Having done that, What do you think of Andrew's adaptation, in culling down 600 plus pages down to a workable script?

Max: I think he did…

What J.J. Abrams Superman Flyby Could Have Been

Earlier this year, J.J. Abrams’ treatment for Superman Flyby leaked online, providing a peak beneath the blue tights at what the Star Trek director had planned for the last son of Krypton. The movie would have been an origin story involving a civil war on Krypton, the exile of Kal-El and a new villain, Ty-Zor, but sadly it never saw the light of day. According to Abrams, though, it wouldn't have been a million miles from what Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel is shaping up to be.

“The thing that I tried to emphasise in the story was that if the Kents found this boy, Kal-El, who had the power that he did, he would have most likely killed them both in short order,” Abrams told Empire. “And the idea that these parents would see – if they were lucky to survive long enough – that they had to immediately begin teaching this kid to limit himself and to not be so fast, not be so strong, not be so powerful.
“The result of that, psychologically, would be fear of oneself, self-doubt and being asha…

Will Stephen Amell Play Christian Grey?

Who is going to play Christian Grey? It looks like Stephen Amell knows a bit more about that than we do.

With a film version of E.L. James' sexy best seller "50 Shades Of Grey" in development at Universal, fan have been spending a lot of time speculating who will star in the steamy drama. And while Emma Watson has been getting just plain ornery about reports she'll be playing Anastasia Steele, another actor has just dropped some pretty serious hints that he's in the running to play the mysterious Christian Grey.

Stephen Amell, best known for playing the title role in the TV series "Arrow," has been getting some buzz as a potential Mr. Grey, and he addressed the rumors in a video he posted on his Facebook page.

"I get questions about Christian Grey all the time," Amell said in the video. "That project is a long way off. I know this ... because I had a meeting about it. LONG way off. I mean, not THAT long. But not close. I wouldn't call…

New Images From "42" & Trailer

Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. "42" tells the story of two men—the great Jackie Robinson and trailblazing Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey—whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball.


From Academy Award® winner Brian Helgeland ("L.A. Confidential") comes the real-life drama "42," starring Chadwick Boseman ("The Express") as Jackie Robinson and Oscar® nominee Harrison Ford ("Witness") as Branch Rickey.


In 1947, Branch Rickey put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking Major League Baseball's infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and other players.



Facing blatant racism from every side, even his own team, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by…

Stoker Review. It's Memorizing & A Bit Haunting

Stoker Review By: MattInRC
The murder/thriller Stoker is one part weird, another part straight up Cray-Cray. But it's good.


Of the strangest films of all time, one must place the zany The Dark Backward or even the mother of weirdness Begotten at the top. Yet a movie doesn't need to feature a hand growing out of your back, or depict the beginning of the world devoid of any comprehensible speaking lines to compete with these top performers. It's in this off light of comparison that the Nicole Kidman film Stoker settles in, offering itself as a strong candidate; sensually violent, completely unapologetic in its depictions, and cleverly directed, Stoker will infuriate some with its plodding but amaze many more with its disturbing storytelling and terrific acting.


India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska, Alice in Wonderland) has just buried her father Richard (Dermot Mulroney, J. Edgar) after he perished in a violent car accident. Atop a nearby hill in the cemetery stands Richard's…

Admission Review. Doesn't Make The Grade

Admission Review By: MattInRC
The Princeton get-into-college movie Admission doesn't make the grade. And soon after it starts, we don't care.

Warning: major plot spoilers ahead.

Admission seeks to be a dramedy about the new world order: torment its cast with real-life difficulties and leave their futures uncertain, all while comedic interludes are supposed to encourage laughter from an audience who thought they paid for something else. Yes, Admission attempts this lofty but completely unrealistic goal, leaving us to question why we bothered to witness the result.


Princeton admissions officer Portia Nathan (Tina Fey, 30 Rock) lives a well-ordered but boring existence. In addition to pouring through applications for admission, her routines also include speaking engagements throughout Northeast high schools encouraging students to apply to what was the most applied-to school in the country. Even though her life is unfulfilled she's up for a promotion to dean of admissions b…

Alan Ritchson Is First Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cast

Now that Paramount and Platinum Dunes has set Megan Fox as the female lead in the Jonathan Liebesman-directed live-action/CGI feature Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they are working on the turtles. First to be cast: Alan Ritchson, who’ll play Raphael. He’ll be coming off playing Gloss, the deadly dagger-wielding male tribute from District One in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.


Now, the original movie series put its actors in bulky turtle suits, but this one will be more like the performance capture in Avatar, making this a good role. The TMNT reboot is dated for a June 6, 2014 release after it was pushed back to cut the budget to around $125M.

JJ Abrams Talks Episode VII.

Mention the name JJ Abrams and there’s one question that immediately barges all others aside: what’s the plan for Episode VII? While he was able to approach Star Trek with a detached objectivity, how will he, as a huge Star Wars fan approach Star Wars' bold new era? Empire put that question to the man himself when we recently sat down with him at his Bad Robot offices in LA.

“I don’t know because we’re just getting started. So it’s a great question that I hope I’ll have a good answer to when I know what the answer is. There are infinitely more questions than answers right now, but to me, they’re not that dissimilar. Though I came at these both from very different places, where they both meet is a place of ‘Ooh, that’s really exciting.’ And even though I was never a Star Trek fan, I felt like there was a version of it that would make me excited, that I would think ‘that’s cool, that feels right, I actually would want to see that.
“How we were going to get there, what the choices wer…

Kate Winslet Joins Divergent

The futuristic Chicago of "Divergent" has just found another resident. After months of being a "maybe," Academy Award-winner Kate Winslet has joined the Erudite faction in Neil Burger's upcoming adaptation of the YA hit as Jeanine Matthews.

The original reports of Winslet's involvement in "Divergent" came back in January when Variety claimed the actress was nearing a deal, but neglected to specify which role she would take on. Two popular theories soon followed, one suggesting that Winslet play the mother of Tris, the film's heroine (played by heroine played by Shailene Woodley), and the other suggesting Jeanine, the more morally ambiguous role.

"Divergent," based on the book by Veronica Roth, tells the story of Beatrice "Tris" Prio, who lives in Chicago sometime in the future, after the social structures as we know them have collapsed. Society is now split up into five separate factions, each valuing one attribute above al…

Robert Redford In Captain America: Winter Soldier?

Acting icon Robert Redford is in negotiations to do his first comic book movie.

Redford is looking likely to close his deal with Marvel Studios, THR has confirmed, and join the cast of Captain America: Winter Soldier, which will begin shooting May in locations around the U.S.

Joe and Anthony Russo are directing the movie, which continues the adventures of Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) and will focus on his relationship with sidekick Bucky (Sebastian Stan), who in the comics returns as the brainwashed assassin Winter Soldier.

Sources say that Redford will be playing an older member of secret government agency SHIELD, and one source has compared the role as similar to the one played by Ralph Fiennes as M’s replacement in last year’s James Bond movie Skyfall.

THE CROODS Review. The Film Is Terrific

THE CROODS Review By: MattInRC
Although it's early to start handing out awards for best animated, consider THE CROODS as a strong candidate.


 As we mentioned in our year-end article, 2012 brought us several terrific films throughout the year, including several; animated ones that made it to this year's Oscars. Bolstered by long lines and positive reviews, animated films are enjoying a resurgence among filmgoers. This year starts off with Dreamworks' THE CROODS, an impressive adventure about cavemen and the coming of the New World.


Eep Crood (voiced by Emma Stone) is a prehistoric cavewoman who wants more than the dull and defensive existence she and her family have been provided by her father Grug (voiced by Nicholas Cage). According to him, cave people should hide from larger animals, stay indoors at night, and generally be prepared to live in fear for the majority of their lives. Grug doesn't like 'new things' as he calls it, because it's led to the de…

Be Apart Of "THE LEGO MOVIE"

If you’re the sort of person who watches LEGO movies on YouTube and thinks, ‘Meh! I can do better than that,’ your chance to put your little plastic bricks and non-licensed minifigures where your mouth is has come. No, don’t go putting LEGO bricks in your mouth – we know from experience that’s a choking hazard – instead, why not try creating a clip for a new competition launched by Warner Bros.’ The LEGO Movie?1

Kicking off March 25, fans registered on the site ReBrick.com will be eligible to enter a homemade clip featuring LEGO that could end up part of the film.

The idea is to create a sequence using only LEGO bricks and non-licensed LEGO minifigures. Contestants will select a character and set their action sequence in one of the many LEGO worlds, including LEGO City, Space, Pirates, Western, Vikings, Dino, Castle, and others. The theme is a scene from the movie where the evil President Business (Will Ferrell) is threatening the citizens of the LEGO universe and they must rally to p…

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN Review. Is A Pure Action Film

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN Review By: MattInRC
The Die Hard/Air Force One action thriller OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN is fun, exciting fare.


I've always considered Gerard Butler to be one of the least utilized actors in Hollywood. Best known as Leonidas in the amazing visual feast known as 300, Butler's phyique and stage presence instantly won over fans who worshipped him as a bonified action star. He was even considered for the role of James Bond before Daniel Craig was ultimately given the keys to the Aston Martin. Then, something happened: Butler began showing up in RomComs and other lesser action titles, of which none suited or matched his talents. When your film diet consists of Playing for Keeps and The Ugly Truth, one might start to think you're the victim of a cruel joke. Luckily, someone saw the action hero in Butler, and OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN represents the perfect return to the place where he should have been all along.


Butler plays Mike Banning, a Secret Service agent who witne…

Christina Applegate Joins Griswold’s "Vacation"

The new Griswold family seems to be coming together at New Line as Christina Applegate is in negotiations to play Rusty Griswold’s wife in “Vacation.”

Ed Helms is set to star with “Horrible Bosses” scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein on board to helm from a script they penned.

The new version of the “Vacation” adventures of the Griswold family will follow Rusty, who now has his own family misadventures on the road.

David Dobkin will produce through his David Dobkin Productions banner.

The plan is to get the film into production sometime in the second quarter of 2013.

Applegate was always considered the favorite even when Helms was not officially attached, given her relationship with New Line after working on “Going the Distance” and “Hall Pass.” Insiders say the reason for the delay in putting together a deal had to do with the studio re-configuring the budget and getting in a new draft of the script.

Escape From New York Remake On It's Way

Joel Silver‘s Silver Pictures has joined forces with Studio Canal to build a new franchise with a retelling of Escape From New York. The 1981 John Carpenter original starred Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken, a tough convict dropped into a futuristic New York that has been turned into a post-apocalyptic maximum security prison. He’s charged with rescuing the president (Donald Pleasence), who is held hostage by the prison kingpin (Isaac Hayes) after his plane crashes within the city walls. Snake’s offered a pardon if he’s successful, but fitted with a lethal device that will kill him if he tries to run or misses the deadline.



A remake had been attempted not that long ago at New Line with producer Neil Moritz and The Crazies helmer Breck Eisner, with Gerard Butler, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hardy all mentioned as potentials to play Plissken. That effort ended when New Line let the option lapse almost two years ago.

Studio Canal, which partnered with Silver on the Liam Neeson action films Unkn…

Hatchet III Teaser Trailer

Those of you who chortled through Hatchet II will be wondering how on Earth swamp stalker Victor Crowley can possibly be coming back from that ending. Nevertheless, the series is continuing, Hatchet III is already in the can, and the first teaser trailer has just escaped from the Louisiana bayou to plant an axe in your noggin.

There's not much to be gleaned there in the way of story, but we're told by the press release that some sort of Crowley hunt is the order of the day. That won't go well. This time it's a search-and-recovery team that's manning the boats to try and pick up the pieces of what happened before. And Danielle Harris is back as Marybeth - a role she's now made her own; Tamara Feldman declined to return after Part I - on the trail of the Honey Island voodoo swamp curse that's the root of all the problems.
