Have 20 minutes to spare? In the middle of a weekday, probably not, but what if we told you it's 20 minutes to be spent with James Bond? That's what's being offered in the latest featurette for 'Skyfall,' the quickly approaching James Bond film. It's delivered shaken, not stirred, after the break.
With the release of 'Prometheus' on Blu-ray and DVD, we can probably expect the debates that raged this past summer to fire up again; it's hard to think of another recent sci-fi movie fueling so many arguments. However, one thing the film's supporters and detractors will be able to agree upon is that the version we're seeing now is vastly different from what could have been, now that screenwriter Jon Spaihts is discussing his original vision for the Ridley Scott pic.
Did you know that it once contained facehuggers and xenomorphs? Or that it would have depicted the grossest sex scene ever? All that and more revealed after the break!
With the impending release of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' on Blu-ray and DVD, some of our readers will be getting a nifty Steelbook Edition only released in the UK. Said edition will hand its owners a very interesting Easter egg indeed via the bonus features: A possible connection between the 'Prometheus' and Scott's 1982 classic 'Blade Runner'. (It's unclear to us at the moment if this is relegated to the UK edition or is featured in all editions.) Geeks, start your drooling!
It could be argued that Guillermo del Toro is the busiest man in Hollywood. The writer-producer-director often has several movies in various stages of development at one time, and the state we currently find him in is no different, with 'Pacific Rim' in post-production and various features ('Frankenstein', 'The Haunted Mansion') in the works. Perhaps his most intriguing project in development, however, is an updated take on 'The Incredible Hulk', which is being produced by Marvel Studios and ABC Television. Want to know when we might see the big guy tackle the big guy?
Your childhood fantasy (or fear?) of seeing an officer of the law who is part man/part machine may be coming true soon, thanks to Researchers at Florida International University's Discovery Lab and a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Reserves. These folks are working to build "telepresence robots," which would patrol the streets while being controlled by disabled police officers and military vets. Let's pause to allow the awesomeness sink in.
The iPhone's iOS6 upgrade has brought Siri closer to sentience. At least when it comes to movies; the "personal assistant" now evidently feels sympathy towards some of its misunderstood cinematic counterparts. Want to know Siri's take on 'Blade Runner'? It could make you look at it in a whole new light.
It would appear as though the 2013 awards season already has a major player in 'The Homesman,' and the picture hasn't even begun shooting yet. The film, set to be written and directed by Tommy Lee Jones (who also plans to star), is an American frontier drama with a handful of meaty roles. Today, we may know who will occupy a couple of those meaty roles: Oscar-winners Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank. (Jones won an Oscar too, so we're talking lots of potential "Academy Award Winner..." titles on 'The Homesman's' poster.)
Even James Bond finds the time to tweet when the news is important.
The official 007 Twitter account was recently updated with some very interesting release date news for those looking forward to seeing 'Skyfall' on an IMAX screen... or really any screen at all. Turns out we'll be able to see the flick in theaters before its official November 9 release date. So, how early will the Sam Mendes-directed film drop in? Find out after the break!
Just the other day, we remarked on how little is known about the plot of 'Paranormal Activity 4,' but then one of our intrepid movie critics got to see a "work-in-progress screening" of the film at Fantastic Fest and revealed a ton of details. Now you can see bits of what he saw through the latest trailer for the October spook-a-thon. Check it out after the break!
We've been waiting patiently for a proper follow-up to 1994's 'Dumb and Dumber' for, well, almost 20 years now. (Let's not count that unfortunate prequel.) One of those projects that seems to have life for a moment once every two years, it has never felt like it was going to truly come together. But the stars appear to be aligning for our dopey friends, as writer-directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly have revealed the title of the new 'Dumb and Dumber' installment.
