Hammer and Entertainment One have unveiled this new clip from the horror sequel, ‘The Woman in Black: Angel of Death.’ Starring Jeremy Irvin, Helen McCrory, Adrian Rawlins, Ned Dennehy and Phoebe Fox, ‘The Woman in Black: Angel of Death’ continues the story four decades later.
Back in 2012, ‘The Woman in Black,’ starring Daniel Radcliffe and directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake), became the highest grossing British horror film of the past 20 years – grossing over $33 million in the UK and over $125 million worldwide. In ‘The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death,’ seized by the government during World War II, the sudden arrival of a group of evacuated children at Eel Marsh House awakens its darkest inhabitant. Tom Harper directs the film, which hits cinemas on January 1st in the UK and January 2nd in the US.
Cinematographer Larry Fong has revealed via his official Instagram that production has wrapped on ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ From ‘Man of Steel’ helmer Zack Snyder, the hugely anticipated film stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Scoot McNairy, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ opens on March 25th, 2016.
Out and about on the promotional campaign for ‘A Most Violent Year,’ Oscar Isaac opened to IGN about assuming the role of Apocalypse in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ his approach to the character, director Bryan Singer’s take, and possible comic book arcs the movie could explore. “In the early conversations we talked a lot about that [Apocalypse’s distinct point of view and agenda]. Of course, you read the comic book, and [Apocalypse is] not so shaded with gray — except his face. [Laughs] That’s the only thing gray about him. Just as Bryan’s done with the other films, I think he seeks to find something a little more interesting than the archetypal aspects of the characters, which work really well in print, but for a film I think you want to see a bit more of the — for lack of a better word — humanity in [Apocalypse]; because ultimately this is a story about humans. It’s just different symbols for different things that we feel, so with this character I am incredibly interested in the challenge of finding someone that’s psychologically interesting and compelling, and actually the spiritual aspects of the character.”
According to a new report, ‘Earth to Echo’ helmer David Green is in talks to direct 2016′s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.’ The original film, which starred Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub, has grossed almost $500 million at the worldwide box office. Michael Bay will again produce the sequel, which is set for a June 3rd, 2016 release date.
Jonathan Liebesman, who’s currently directing the 10-part event series ‘Shannara,’ directed this summer’s “Turtles” film. The first film left the door open for Megan Fox and Will Arnett to return alongside our reptilian heroes in a half shell — Leonardo (Pete Ploszek), Raphael (Alan Ritchson), Michelangelo (Noel Fisher) and Donatello (Jeremy Howard). David Green is also slated to direct the Dwayne Johnson movie ‘Lore.’
This past summer test footage “leaked” online for the long-in-development ‘Deadpool’ movie to much acclaim. Closely following the warm reception, 20th Century Fox penciled in the perpetually on/off project for a February 12th, 2016 release date – three months before ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ hits the big screen. Today we hear from Deadline that Ryan Reynolds is closing a deal to return as Deadpool with director Tim Miller at the helm. Earlier in the day, Reynolds teased his return via his new Twitter account.
A disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of ‘New Mutants,’ and later in issues of ‘X-Force.’ The character has since starred in several ongoing series, and shares titles with other characters such as Cable. Also known as the “Merc with a Mouth,” Deadpool is famous for his talkative nature and his tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect. Filming begins on the ‘Deadpool’ film in March.
With the release of ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ on the horizon, Warner Bros. Pictures have set loose this new behind-the-scenes featurette for the epic conclusion to Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy. ‘The Hobbit’ films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ which Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson and his team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.’ ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ will be released in the UK on December 12th and in the US on December 17th.
