The Dark Tower Blu-ray/DVD release date and bonus features

12 hours ago

Kirsten Howard Simon Brew Sep 20, 2017

The Dark Tower is heading for its home release in the UK in December. Here are all the details you need...

Off the back of not very impressive reviews, the first film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower saga - starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey - struggled to gain much traction at the Us box office, only scrounging up $19.5m in its opening weekend. Whilst plans are still afoot for a television series based on the books, there are surely a few question marks over the planned film sequel to this particular movie.

If you were a fan of the film, or you want to grab a copy to see for yourself if it's any good, you'll be able to do so on the 31st of October if you're in the Us (or if you have »

Fear The Walking Dead delivers a solid, focused episode with strong performances in La Serpiente. Spoilers...

3.11 La Serpiente

Fear The Walking Dead isn't a universe that allows happy endings.  Sure, you might get a few happy moments here and there, and between seasons anything is possible, but on a macro level, nothing's going to work out for anyone, and everyone's going to die miserably.  After all, these are a bunch of people who are trying to scratch out a living in an inhospitable desert, an arduous process even before the whole zombie apocalypse outbreak.  However, La Serpiente ends on a strangely pleasant note. Daniel and Strand have a handshake and an understanding of mutual benefit. Madison's gotten the water needed to keep the peace and keep the ranch alive. Walker sees that his new American friends might »

7.3 Neighbors From Hell

There's a rope around the neck of Ally Mayfair-Richards (Sarah Paulson), and it seems that at every turn, rather than try to extract herself from the gallows, she only manages to tighten the noose a little tighter with every episode of struggling. Her business was failing and her marriage was a wreck before she shoots an innocent man in a case of mistaken identity, but after that, things only seem to be getting worse.

Cult is operating in a world not unlike our own, just heightened to a ridiculous degree. After shooting Pedro in a case of mistaken identity, the gun-fearing liberal Ally is saved not by detective work or her alibi, but by the controversial “stand your ground” law, »

Akira remake: Taika Waititi is now in talks to direct

20 hours ago

Simon Brew Sep 20, 2017

Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi is reportedly set to take on the long-mooted live action Akira remake...

A live action remake of Akira has been something Hollywood has been chasing since pretty much day one of this site. It’s certainly got close a few times, with perhaps Jaume Collet-Serra coming the nearest to getting the project moving, before he departed last year.

Now, though, there may be fresh life for the project, with the news that Thor: Ragnarok and Hunt For The Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi is reportedly in talks to direct.

Warner Bros has targeted Waititi to take the project on, although it won’t be his next film if he says yes. He’s already committed to filming Jojo Rabbit next spring for Fox Searchlight.

Whether the project needs a new screenplay from scratch, too, of it there’s a previous draft that works, »

The new movie is being developed by James Cameron, who will be producing and has come up with the story. Directorial duties are being handed to Deadpool helmer Tim Miller, with an eye on a potential new trilogy. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also set to return.

Why Matthew Vaughn quit X-Men: Days Of Future Past

20 hours ago

Simon Brew Sep 20, 2017

Following X-Men: First Class, Matthew Vaughn had the option to direct the next film. He chose not to, and has been explaining why...

With his new film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, now in cinemas, director Matthew Vaughn has been on the promotional trailer for the movie. And whilst on his travels, questions about one or two former projects have come up.

In particular, Uproxx has been asking as to why Vaughn – who sort-of-rebooted the X-Men series with X-Men: First Class – eventually passed on the opportunity to direct the sequel. Instead, X-Men: Days Of Future Past was handled by Bryan Singer.

“The reason I haven’t done sequels in the past is they just weren’t exciting me”, he explained.

“And on Days Of Future Past, even though I co-wrote the bloody thing, the reason I bailed out of it is two things: First, I respect Bryan Singer »

Superman: The Movie three hour cut getting a release

19 September 2017 5:14 PM, PDT

Mike Cecchini Sep 20, 2017

A legendary extended version of Superman: The Movie will finally get an official release.

I seriously never thought I would live to see this day. Long before home video was a collector's format, when a blockbuster hit the small screen, it was a big deal. And when ABC in the Us aired Superman: The Movie, it was a big enough deal that they split it across two nights.

Yes, you read that right. Superman: The Movie's unwieldy 143 minute runtime wouldn't fit neatly in a normal time slot, so the network's solution was to extend the film itself to 188 minutes and add enough commercials to pad out two different two hour timeslots. That TV cut has been legendarily bootlegged far and wide for as long as I've been on the internet. The best ones would take the available widescreen footage, which would then jarringly cut to an »

The Croods 2 is back on

19 September 2017 1:14 PM, PDT

Simon Brew Sep 20, 2017

Having cancelled the film a year ago, DreamWorks Animation has suddenly revived The Croods 2...

Now here’s a surprise. It’s been about a year since Universal and DreamWorks Animation announced that the planned follow-up to smash-hit The Croods had been abandoned. Problems cracking the story had left the movie in limbo, and in lieu of solid progress, the film was shelved.

But now it’s been unshelved.

DreamWorks Pictures has announced that the follow-up to the 2013 original is back on, and it’s also given it a release date. The Croods 2 is set for release on September 18th 2020.

The core voice vast, led by Nicolas Cage and Emma Stone, will be returning. Another family is being introduced to the new movie too, with Leslie Mann one of the fresh additions to the cast.

Jeff Bridges interview: Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Iron Man, Starman, westerns

19 September 2017 12:25 PM, PDT

Duncan Bowles Sep 20, 2017

Jeff Bridges chats to us about movies, Kingsman, westerns, Iron Man and more...

When preparing for an interview it can often be a double edged sword if you choose to look at other peoples’ work. Sometimes you read an interview and the answers can look frighteningly short, so panic might set in that perhaps that person isn’t very chatty, or doesn’t like doing them (though often publications just choose to use highlights), but I have to say that with Jeff Bridges, I’m glad I’d read Celia Walden’s talk with him for the Telegraph first. 

I wouldn’t usually reference what I’d read in an introduction, but once you know you’re going to be sat in a room with Jeff Bridges, alone, for fifteen minutes, you need as much preparation as possible – he is, after all, a cinematic legend who needs no introduction. »

Red Dwarf: looking back at the past and ahead to the future

19 September 2017 11:15 AM, PDT

Jamie Andrew Sep 20, 2017

With Red Dwarf Xii on its way, one fan revisits his love of the short rouge one, through the highs to the lows and back again...

If not for Doctor Who and Star Trek – two low-key franchises of which I'm sure you're dimly aware – Red Dwarf would be the longest-running, (still in production) sci-fi television series of all time. As a consolation, Red Dwarf can at least claim the distinction of being the longest-running sci-fi television series of all time in which the core cast hasn't been replaced, re-booted or regenerated. But to what extent is this Usp a curse? Thirty-one years is a hell of a long time for a group of guys to be marooned in deep space all wearing the same faces, especially when those faces have visibly sagged and etched and wrinkled over the fast-rolling decades (except in the case of Danny John Jules, »

Doctor Foster series 2 episode 3 review

Louisa Mellor Sep 19, 2017

It. Is. On. One scene in this week's Doctor Foster is destined to get people talking. Spoilers ahead…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  The Dark Tower review

In the final moments of Doctor Foster series one, as Simon and a heavily pregnant Kate drove away from Parminster town square, Gemma glanced over at the gaming magazine Tom was reading and saw he was looking at a female character leaning provocatively over a car bonnet in a bikini. Nothing further was said, but it planted a seed in her and our minds about Tom’s developing attitudes to relationships and sex. How would his dad’s affair affect the man Tom would become?

“Sons are their fathers” Jack said that same series of Simon’s philandering. Thinking of Tom, Gemma had replied thoughtfully, “I hope not”.

That seed bore discomfiting fruit in this week’s Doctor Foster, »

Konami has announced they are releasing a remake of the 2003 cult classic mech title Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner called Zone Of The Enders: Anubis Mars.

This highly-anticipated survival shooter Left Alive boasts an all-star pedigree - and a cracking trailer. Check it out below...

The hidden history of Japanese videogame celebrations

19 September 2017 1:15 AM, PDT

Ryan Lambie Sep 19, 2017

Ever notice the victory moments in Japanese games like Street Fighter or Megaman? They all have a common root...

They're so prevalent in videogames that they almost pass by unnoticed: the little celebratory movements characters make when they've won a fight or completed a cleared a stage.

See related  The Dark Tower review

In the Street Fighter series, you may remember Chun Li jumping up and down and blowing kisses to the camera, or Ryu striking a moody pose. In the Megaman series, there are the threatening stances the bosses pull off before the start of each end-of-level fight.

It's virtually unknown in the west, but these movements have a particular significance in Japan - and even a name: they're known as "Guts Pose", and date back to the 1970s, and a boxer named Guts Ishimatsu. The video below, created by YouTuber Gaijillionaire, exposes the whole story, »

Beverly Hills Cop 4 now targeting Channing Tatum, Tom Hardy

Simon Brew Sep 19, 2017

A few more details about the planned Beverly Hills Cop 4 have emerged...

Finally, it looks as if the long-delayed Beverly Hills Cop 4 might be back on. The movie did have a release date in place a year or two ago (it had been planned for 2015), but said date came and went with no sign of a scrap of footage being shot.

More recently, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah were hired last year to direct the movie, and they’ve been developing the project ever since. In the last week or so too, they’ve appeared on a Dutch talk show, and have given a fresh update on the project.

The sequel, they revealed, will have a limited $50m budget, and the film will be shot primarily in Detroit. Furthermore, they’re looking for a new partner for Eddie Murphy’s Axel Foley in the film. »

Paramount issues statement defending mother!

18 September 2017 9:50 PM, PDT

Simon Brew Sep 19, 2017

It's split audiences. It's bumped at the box office. But Paramount Pictures has come out fighting for Darren Aronofsky's mother!

Few films appear to have split the room as dramatically as Darren Aronofsky’s new movie, mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence. The film opened in cinemas last weekend, and earned – in the Us – a very low cinemascore of F from audiences. That puts it in the company of movies such as Killing Them Softly, and the remake of Solaris. Not bad films, to be clear, more films that, if they don’t side with them, people tend to outright hate.

mother! got very good reviews on the whole, and it certainly has its advocates outside of movie critics too. But it struggled at the box office over the weekend, and has become something of a talking point.

Time Salvager to be adapted for Michael Bay movie

Michael Ahr Sep 19, 2017

Tme travel novel Time Salvager has just been added to Michael Bay's slate...

Time travel is all the rage, and Wesley Chu’s Time Salvager has been tapped to become the next adaptation for the big screen. Zak Olkewicz will write the script, and Michael Bay is attached to direct the film. Olkewicz is already knee-deep in two adaptations for Fox: one for R.L. Stine’s Fear Street and another for the graphic novel, Malignant Man by James Wan.

Chu’s novel tells the story of a time traveler known as a Chronman, whose future is so bereft of natural resources that he must mine the past for useful goods. Only disasters can be exploited without changing the timeline, but when the Chronman saves a scientist’s life and brings her to his time, he puts them in danger for having broken the rules.

Blake Lively stars in the new thriller, All I See Is You. Here's the trailer for it...

Blake Lively has slowly and steadily been building a good film career for herself in the thriller genre. After the thoroughly enjoyable, terrifying The Shallows, she is taking center stage in All I See Is You, the upcoming domestic thriller from World War Z director Marc Forster that generated some buzz at the recent Toronto Film Festival.

All I See is You is about Gina (Lively), a happily married blind woman who has surgery to correct her vision.
