Exclusive Interview With Jason Momoa From Upcoming Conan Film

We were unable to attend the Movies On Demand One On One with Conan's Jason Momoa so who better to ask to attend for us than our good buddy Randy from thearnoldfans . Although the Lionsgate film " Conan " does not come out until next month, I was given early access to interview two lead actors of the film at Comic Con in the press room at the Hard Rock Hotel. Although many of us believe this will not be as good as the epic Schwarzenegger version, I am optimistic that this will still be a fun film and I wish the barbaric actor of Game of Thrones and Conan , Jason Momoa , big success as an actor. On the other hand, I am very disappointed that Momoa does not know " WHAT IS BEST IN LIFE ." That's right, it turns out he has never watched the original Arnold film. "I haven't seen the original movie and a lot of people are kind of upset with me for that but the fact is MY Conan is more of the Frank Frazetta paintings. When I saw those pictures of

Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy Film On The Way

Given how many of Marvel’s characters are already up on screen, and how many more are in development, you might imagine that there are very few left kicking their heels in the waiting room, eyeing the complimentary water bottles and out-of-date lifestyle magazines and wondering when their chance at the big screen might come. Well, the Marvel Universe is a big place, so we imagine the room to be about the size of 10 hangers. But now one group of heroes might finally be seeing their number flash on the LED board – as according to Twitch , the company is now pushing ahead with plans for a movie based on Guardians of the Galaxy . Chances are that unless you’re a Marvel diehard, you may never have heard of the characters, and that’s because the team is now looking to tap some of the lesser-known properties for franchise potential. Originally appearing in Marvel Super-Heroes in 1969, they’re a team assembled from various different species and planets in the 31st century with the aim of f

Yesterday Warner Bros. released the first image of Henry Cavill As Superman , and today they  released the first image of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman .

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Release Date Is Set

Executives at Columbia Pictures think they have a winner with their new web-spinner. “ The Amazing Spider-Man ” doesn’t reach theaters until July 3, 2012, but the studio has already locked in a May 2, 2014, release date for a sequel. A Columbia Pictures spokesman said the scheduling move “speaks volumes” about the superhero relaunch with director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield , who are coming off of a winning appearance at Comic-Con International. There was considerable fan skepticism early on about the choice of Webb, who has directed only one feature film — the 2009 romantic comedy ” (500) Days of Summer ” – and arrived on this project in the long shadow of Sam Raimi, whose three “Spider-Man” films earned close to $3.5 billion in worldwide box office and keyed billions more in home video, toys, licensing and video games.

Henry Cavill As Superman. First Official Picture From The Man Of Steel

It won't hit screens until 2013, but here's your first sneak peek at Henry Cavill as the Man Of Steel , in Zack Snyder's new take on Superman. It's immediately apparent that the primary colors of the costume have been slightly toned down, and that this is one Kryptonian not afraid of getting his hands dirty. But some things don't change; he's clearly still capable of crumpling a bank vault up like a normal man crumples unwanted sheets of paper. The film also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as the Kent parents, Julia Ormond and Russell Crowe as his Kryptonian parents, Michael Shannon as fellow Kryptonian General Zod and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, editor of the Daily Planet. Harry Lennix, Antje Traue and Christopher Meloni also star. Christopher Nolan is producing, as well as having worked on the story with David S. Goyer, who then wrote the script.

Cowboy & Aliens Movie Review By: CubicleMike

Cowboy & Aliens Movie Review By: CubicleMike I want to welcome CubicleMike to the mix over here at SandwichJohnFilms. The Cube will be doing reviews from time to time for the site.  Here's his first review for the site and let me tell you there are SPOILERS ! You have been Warned! The title holds so much promise; “ Cowboys and Aliens ”. Who in their right mind, if you are male, didn’t play Cowboys and Indians when they were a kid or imagined stopping an invading hoard of aliens? Let me start by saying the main character (Jake Lonergan) in this film was supposed to be played by Robert Downey Jr .; but he had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts, I guess we will never know what may have been. The film starts out panning across what seems like the Arizona or New Mexico wilderness where our hero has been dumped or fell to exhaustion. Amnesiac Daniel Craig (Jake Lonergan) wakes up with no shoes, blood on his shirt with no food, water or even a horse. I think Daniel Cr

News About Maverick Surf Contest And Film

Deadline is reporting that Gerard Butler has been set to star in Mavericks , the Curtis Hanson-directed fact-based drama for Walden Media. The film is based on the true story of Santa Cruz surf phenom Jay Moriarity and his quest to ride the treacherous Northern California breaks known as Mavericks, where winter swells create waves the size of five-story buildings. Butler will play Rick "Frosty" Hesson , the mentor who trained Moriarity for over a year and forged a close relationship with the surfer in the process. Though Moriarity survived those impossible waves, he died at 22 in a diving accident. But he remains an inspiration to surfers, who coined the phrase " Live like Jay ."

Green Lantern 2 To Be Darker & More Action

Green Lantern may have a future on the big screen, but likely not with the same director. Despite the big-budget superhero movie’s disappointing box office performance so far, Warner Bros. executives still want to find a way to make a sequel work. Bringing superheroes from its DC Comics unit to the big screen is a top priority for the studio, and executives believe that the problem with “ Green Lantern ” was in execution, not concept. They even have ideas on how to turn things around next time. “We had a decent opening so we learned there is an audience,” said Warner Bros. film group President Jeff Robinov, pointing to the film’s box office debut of $53 million. “To go forward we need to make it a little edgier and darker with more emphasis on action…. And we have to find a way to balance the time the movie spends in space versus on Earth.” After its so-so opening, “Green Lantern” fizzled at the domestic box office, ending up with only $114 million. Its overseas performance in i

Laurence Fishburne To Play Perry White In Man of Steel

EW is reporting that Laurence Fishburne will play Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White in Man of Steel , White has traditionally been a hard-charging, old fashioned newspaperman, who relies on his ace reporters, Clark and Lois, to get the big scoop. Jackie Cooper played White in the Christopher Reeve-era Superman films, and Frank Langella took on the role in director Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns in 2006. The casting resolves the question of what Laurence would be up to following his departure this May from CBS’ long-running CSI after just over two seasons. (Ted Danson will take Fishburne’s place on the show this fall.) The Superman reboot, produced by Christopher Nolan and directed by Zack Snyder, stars Henry Cavill as Clark (a.k.a.

Doctor Strange Movie Closer To Reality

As Marvel mines the depths of their character catalog for big screen properties one thing has become clear: They are rapidly coming to the end of the big, mainstream characters and, if they are to continue, things are going to get weird. Hardcore fans of the label have been waiting for the weird factor to crank up and recent Marvel entries have nodded to the supernatural, cosmic side of the Marvel Universe with elements of both Thor and Captain America leaning in that direction. But for all that Thor is a god and Captain America showed off the Cosmic Cube that's still not the real thing. If you want Cosmic Marvel you want Doctor Strange . Created in 1963 Doctor Strange is the story of an arrogant surgeon who is injured in a car accident and goes on to become the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel universe. Using his magical powers Strange protects the earth from attacks from other realms. Fans have been vocal about wanting a Doctor Strange movie for a while now and there have b
