Celebrating the iconic monsters’ black and white roots, Legendary Pictures has revealed this above new poster for the much anticipated ‘Godzilla.’ Furthermore, the following still from the film has found its way online, providing us with a great look at the King of Monsters. Described as an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic sci-fi monster pic, the film pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
EW has debuted a new image from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ highlighting Evan Peters’ Quicksilver. On the topic of the character, screenwriter Simon Kinberg told the outlet, “The way we conceived him is a sort of an ADD kid. Everything he does is just popping and zipping around. He doesn’t take anything seriously. He’s not in a situation for more than a few seconds. So it infused the movie with an energy that was really useful for us.”
Additionally, given that Quicksilver is the son of Magneto in the source material, Simon Kinberg addressed the dynamic in the film between Evan Peters and Michael Fassbender. “Quicksilver is Magneto’s son in the comics and there may be an allusion to it in the movie. But it’s not something we fully explore yet.” UPDATE: more new images added.
Stephen Hawking Drama ‘Theory Of Everything’ Set For November – Starring Eddie Redmayne & Felicity Jones
Focus Features send word that the Stephen Hawking drama ‘Theory of Everything’ is set for a November 7th release. Starring Eddie Redmayne as Hawking, the film is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire). The movie explores the excitement of the 1960s for Stephen as he studies at Cambridge University. At the dawn of a brilliant life’s work, he falls passionately in love with arts student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). Their relationship leads him through personal and scientific challenges and breakthroughs, and as his world opens up he opens up the entire world to new ways of seeing.
Jane Wilde’s memoir “Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen” inspired the film. The screenplay is by Anthony McCarten, who is producer on the film with Lisa Bruce and Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. Focus CEO Peter Schlessel commented, “This extraordinary love story between one of the greatest minds of our time, Stephen Hawking, and his first wife Jane is profoundly moving and inspirational, with heart and humor. Under the dynamic direction of James Marsh, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones deliver performances of stunning emotional power.”
According to The Wrap, Jeff Wadlow has closed a deal to rewrite ‘Masters of the Universe’ for Sony Pictures and Escape Artists. Wadlow most recently directed ‘Kick-Ass 2′ and is said to be among the frontrunners to direct the long-gestating He-Man movie along with Mike Cahill (I Origins, Another Earth), though no one is attached at this time. Jon M. Chu was previously attached to direct the film, which is based on the classic 1980s animated TV series.
‘The Lone Ranger’ writer Terry Rossio penned the previous draft of ‘Masters of the Universe.’ Set on Eternia, the story follows a blond warrior named Prince Adam who turns into the heroic He-Man and battles a villain named Skeletor out to conquer Castle Grayskull. Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing the project.
