Cher Joins Mamma Mia Sequel

TERMINATOR Reboot Casting News

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Alan Taylor is prepping to begin testing actors and actresses for the sci-fi feature project, which is being made by Paramount, Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions.

The testing will begin next next week, with Taylor seeing Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, Brie Larson (The Spectacular Now) as well as another actress vying for the role of young Sarah Connor. Margot Robbie’s name has also surfaced in connection with the role.

Connor was played by Linda Hamilton in the classic movies directed by James Cameron. The character is the future mother of John Connor, who grows up to be the leader of the human resistance in the war between humanity and cyborgs.

Names of those in contention began surfacing earlier this week.

Taylor will also be searching for his young Kyle Reese, the man who will father John. Those actor tests will occur at a later date but insiders say Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) is on the short list although sources say reports …

Magneto's New Look

20th Century Fox has released a new X-Men: Days Of Future Past pic showing Michael Fassbender's Magneto, circa 1970, in a suit that's evolving as fast as his mean streak.

Days Of Future Past finds Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and the current X-team confronting a dark alternate future where mutants are an endangered species, tracked down, imprisoned or killed thanks to Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage)’s Sentinel program and an overwhelming level of distrust aimed at them from regular humans.

Epic Trailer For X-Men: Days Of Future Past & New Images-

They boldly plan to send Wolverine’s consciousness back in time to the First Class era (or a few years after we last met those versions of the characters) to convince the younger Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the rest to work together to stop the threat at its source.

Netflix & Marvel Team Up For Four Marvel Miniseries

Exciting news for Netflix subscribers (*other streaming sites are available) with the announcement of a huge production partnership deal with Marvel. The studio’s TV arm and the TV Network are developing four 13-part superhero series, kicking off in 2015. Those will lead into what they’re calling “a miniseries programming event”, a version of Marvel’s The Defenders that “reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters”.

The first Marvel cab off the Netflix rank will be a 13-part Daredevil series, followed by Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. For Marvel fans, this means years of viewing ahead and a vow by Netflix that readers will be taken “deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell’s Kitchen, New York”. So who are these people? Well, allow us to explain a little.

Daredevil is, of course, the superhero blinded in an accident as a child, who was left withe super-sensitive hearing that allows him to be hyper-aware of his surroundings. Crusading lawyer …

Kate Bosworth Joins Somnia

Kate Bosworth and Thomas Jane have signed on to star in the horror pic Somnia, the next film from Oculus director Mike Flanagan.

Co-written by Flanagan and Jeff Howard, Somnia -- set to start shooting next weekend -- is about an orphaned child (Jacob Tremblay) whose dreams and nightmares manifest physically as he sleeps. Bosworth and Jane will play the child's parents.

Demarest Films and MICA Entertainment are financing the movie, with Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy and Demarest’s Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson producing. Mali Elfman and D. Scott Lumpkin are executive producers.

"Somnia is a natural follow-up to Oculus for Mike. We are thrilled that Kate and Thomas have joined us for Somnia, and look forward to Sierra presenting both titles at the AFM,” said Macy.

Englebardt added, "Mike Flanagan blew us away with Oculus and we’re thrilled to be working with him and Trevor on Somnia."

Ride Along Trailer Starring Kevin Hart & Ice Cube

What happens when you cast Kevin Hart as a loud-mouthed school security guard together with hard-nosed cop Ice Cube? Well, the new action comedy Ride Along hopes it equals laughs.

Hart is Ben, a man more used to dealing with schoolyard squabbles than major crime. He also happens to be head over heels in love with Angela (Tika Sumpter), and intends to marry her, but there’s just one small problem: her big brother James (Cube).

Singularly unimpressed with the “Smurf” his sister has chosen to spend his life with, James decides that the only way Ben can prove himself worthy, now that he's joined the police academy, is to come on a ride-along. After the necessary preparation montage, the pair hits the streets.



Our worries that this one seems overly generic aren’t dispelled by the new promo: even with Hart’s live-wire delivery and Cube’s typically tough-guy stuff, we still feel like we’ve seen every joke before. The whole film will, like Ben, have to prove itself when it hits screens.

Thor: The Dark World Review. Stick Around Til The End

Thor: The Dark World Review By: MattInRC
A Thor-sized helping of Phase 2 is the best Marvel sequel so far.


Back in the summer, we wrote a glowing review of Iron Man 3, but since then our opinion has noticeably dulled. Disappointed at the lack of 'Iron Man moments' and still seething over the treatment of The Mandarin, we recently demoted it out of our top 10 list of 2013. It therefore shouldn't come as a shock that we were worried whether Marvel Studios had lost a bit of their mojo post-Avengers. Luckily, Thor: The Dark World relieves any anxiety, delivering a deeper, tonally darker production that is also funny at times while setting its sights clearly on a larger-scale Phase 2.


Set two years after Avengers, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has been playing galactic police, quelling riots throughout The Nine Realms while his girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) has moved to London to start a new life. Both are miserable, but events will soon bring them together courtesy of t…

Hugh Jackman To Return For Another Wolverine Film

Twentieth Century Fox has begun negotiations with James Mangold to return for another installment of The Wolverine, with Hugh Jackman bringing back his signature character with the razor sharp adamantium hooks. This comes after The Wolverine played very strongly overseas, enough to now sit as the second highest grossing X-Men film of all time. The film has grossed $413 million worldwide, with $132 million domestic and $280 million in international revenue.

Here’s where it is right now. Mangold is making a deal to write the treatment, with X-Men franchise matriarch Lauren Shuler Donner producing. The storyline is being kept under tight wraps. I think Mangold did a bang up job on his first superhero film. When I met him at Comic-Con San Diego, he said he tried to veer from the usual superhero formula–if hero doesn’t succeed, world is doomed–and instead make it a character-driven storyline. There were plenty of action pieces, samurai swordplay and reasons for Logan to work up that famous…
