The first photos of Matthew McConaughey on The Set Of The Dark Tower have surfaced. The actor is playing The Man in Black, also known as Randall Flagg, Walter o’Dim, and the Ageless Stranger. Idris Elba plays the Gunslinger Roland Deschain, and they will be joined by Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Kathryn Winnick, and Abby Lee. The film is not a direct adaptation of the book and these shots were taken in New York City which plays a big role in the latter books in the series.
Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, The Dark Tower is currently set to be released on February 17th, next year. Do you think McConaughey looks the part of Walter? Do you think he can bring the charm and menace to the role? Sound of Dark Tower fans!
Universal Pictures and Legendary announced today that John Boyega will be re-cancelling the apocalypse on February 23, 2018 in Pacific Rim 2. Boyega will be playing the son of Stacker Pentecost, Idris Elba’s character from the first film. The original film made a bit over $100 million in the U.S. and another $300 million world wide.
Guillermo del Toro won’t be directing, but he will be an Executive Producer. Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) is taking over the directing chair and Derek Connolly (Jurassic World) is writing the script based on an earlier piece by del Toro, Travis Beacham, Zak Penn, and Jon Spaihts.
Scott Park took some of the most iconic vehicles of film and television and gave them a Mad Max makeover. What’s cooler that seeing the Krystal Ship or the A-Team van transformed for survival in the post-apocalypse? Seeing the Bluth stair car outfitted with machine guns, and the Pizza Planet truck equipped with a harpoon gun.
Last week, Warner Brothers flew several prominent bloggers to London to talk about Justice League that is currently filming. These were critics that had issues with Batman v. Superman, but were deemed fair in their criticism, and influential of course. Before we get to the information they learned, here is the official synopsis of Justice League:
“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman, and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash — it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.” Continue reading →
As Suicide Squad’s release date of August 5th approaches, Warner Bros. is ramping up the promotional material for the film. Today, they released two theatrical posters, and character posters for each main character as well. I love the creativity in the theatrical posters, and WB seems to be emphasizing a more colorful and entertaining movie than the dark Batman v. Superman. What do you think of the latest releases? Are you excited for the film? Continue reading →
Pixar’s Finding Dory is out today, and to celebrate, we wanted to look back at the history of the beloved animation studio’s groundbreaking work from 1984 to the present. All the Pixar films are represented chronologically from the shorts like “Luxo Jr.” and “One Man Band” and then to films like Toy Story through “Finding Dory.”
The quality of the animation has dramatically improved, but the emotional storytelling has been at the heart of Pixar from the beginning.
