The wait is finally over, Batman fans! Fox's 'Gotham,' the upcoming Batman prequel series, has cast its Commissioner James Gordon, after months of whispers and rumors -- Ben McKenzie, formerly of 'Southland' and 'The O.C.' has been chosen to don the badge and fight crime on the streets of Gotham City in the new series that explores Batman/young Bruce Wayne's origins and the city in which he was raised.
You might not be aware, but EuropaCorp is planning a reboot of the popular 'Transporter' action franchise, which starred Jason Statham as badass Frank Martin. And now the first flick has cast its leading man: Ed Skrein, the British actor who played Daario Naharis, the Khaleesi's love interest in the third season of 'Game of Thrones.' Is Skrein man enough to take on the role popularized by Statham?
Seems like everyone's getting in on the action for Super Bowl 2014: 'Pompeii,' the new film from Paul W.S. Anderson (best known for the 'Resident Evil' franchise), has released a spot for this Sunday's big game. It's no 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' or 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' that's for sure -- but hey, it's still got plenty of action, and knowing Anderson, it could be pretty nuts.
There was a lot of talk before Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street' hit theaters about the length of the film: the release had been delayed so Scorsese could get the runtime down to an acceptable three hours from what was said to be a four-hour version of the film, and although Scorsese never releases "director's cuts" of his films, we're hearing you will be able to see his four-hour cut after all when the Blu-ray hits shelves this year.
If you're like some of us around here, you mostly watch the Super Bowl for the hilarious commercials and the awesome new movie trailers. But there's one you won't be seeing on TV: Scarlett Johansson's Super Bowl commercial for SodaStream, which was banned from airing during the upcoming game.
Those who tuned into Sunday night's Grammy Awards were in for a special treat: Disney debuted a new 90-second 'Maleficent' trailer, featuring Lana Del Rey performing a haunting cover of the original animated classic's signature "Once Upon a Dream" tune. Coupled with some epic new footage, the end result was rather breathtaking and just the sort of thing to get us properly excited for the upcoming film, starring Angelina Jolie as the classic Disney villain.
Miles Teller has been picking up steam lately with roles in 'The Spectacular Now' and 'Whiplash,' which opened the festivities at this week's Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. And right on the heels of that premiere comes word of Teller's latest role: playing comedy icon Dan Aykroyd in the upcoming John Belushi biopic, starring Emile Hirsch. At least that's what Hirsch says.
The 2014 SAG Awards winners were revealed on January 18 during the ceremony hosted on TNT, with presenters including Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Tina Fey, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeremy Renner, and many more. Unlike the Oscars, the Screen Actors Guild Awards acknowledge both film and television -- and unlike the Golden Globes, they recognize ensemble casts in addition to individual performances.
