Pictures to the clip via Twitter. Um…. Attn @DetPikachuMovie @warnerbros https://t.co/UF7qYtKOYV — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) May 7, 2019 The video, titled “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu […]
With production on the second season of his BBC comedy series White Gold already suspended, the co-producers of BBC One‘s adaptation of Agatha Christie‘s mystery Ordeal By Innocence have announced that they are recasting the role that Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick had already finished portraying. In addition, Mammoth Screen and Agatha Christie Limited will […]
As mystery authors go, Agatha Christie was not only prolific, but she was one of the few to create more than one memorable detective. Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple mysteries have been adapted many times over the years, and now Amazon has made a multi-show deal with Agatha Christie Productions for the U.S. rights to […]
Tonight, BBC 1 shows a new ten minute sequel to the Love Actually movie for Comic Relief’s charity telethon, Red Nose Day, called Red Nose Day Actually with Hugh Grant, Liam Nielson, Colin Firth, Kiera Knightley, Bill Nighy, Andrew Lincoln, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Martine McCutcheon, Rowan Atkinson and more. They will also be joined […]
According to Indiewire Brad Pitt‘s Plan B production company and Netflix will co-produce and fund Snowpiercer director Bong Joon-ho‘s next film Okja. The project is described as a monster movie, but little else is known. Previously, the director said the film is about “a warm friendship between a country girl and a brute with stories” […]
Okay, here is the latest rumor on the Doctor Strange movie. Latino Review is saying that three actors are being considered for the role of the Ancient One. Previously we were told that this would not be an origin story. So how much of a role the Ancient One is remains to be seen. Also […]
The BBC have produced a new radio play, Darkside, written by the incomparable Tom Stoppard. Bill Nighy stars, with Rufus Sewell also involved, voicing a superhero called Ethics Man.
This trailer has a slightly unusual shape but is all the better for it.
Do American audiences have different requirements from their films or trailers to the Brits? And if not, why do Universal seem to think they do?
The Wrath of Hephaestus.
Remember the 1990 fun-fest when Arnold Schwarzenegger had his brain wiped and went to Mars? Prepare to have your memories edited...
I’ve been waiting for Drew Barrymore to pick up the megaphone again since loving Whip It. Looks like the wait will soon be over, with The Hollywood Reporter saying that she’s closed the deal for her next project. The End is to be a portmanteau picture, picking up with several characters on the last day […]
The most interesting thing in this new motion poster for Total Recall is not the actual motion of Colin Farrell dissipating like a fart on the wind (though we’re all very impressed by that), but rather the backdrop for all that hot graphics action. This poster originated over at JoBlo, but it takes a keen-eyed Brit […]
Arthur Christmas is the first collaboration between Sony Pictures Animation and Aardman Animation, and features the voice talents of James McAvoy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton and Bill Nighy as members of the family Christmas living in the North Pole amidst a hugely complex and high-tech operation that’s needed to get billions of presents delivered every […]
I’m sure Wrath of the Titans will be its own beast with its own problems but the association with last year’s Clash remake, to which it is a sequel, surely can’t help. The film is currently casting up under director Jonathan Liebesman, and amongst his new recruits are some exciting young actors. Shame, really. Blots on […]
Gore Verbinski’s animated film Rango was, before animation began, filmed as a rather basic stage production. You can see that process in this new featurette as Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher et al bounce about in a rudimentary set. Now, I can see the benefits of this approach, not least in giving the actors something to […]
Cameron Crowe is finally about to embark on the production of a new movie, so I’m getting ready to do my little happy dance – the one where I look like Kermit doing The Do-op Hop. Put on your protective goggles. Deadline have more casting news for Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo, so here’s the full […]
Iain Softley’s next picture is to be an adaptation of Sebastian Japrisot’s novel A Trap For Cinderella. Unlike almost every other film in development, this won’t be a lightly tweaked revision of a famous fairy tale or children’s novel but is actually a contemporary thriller dosed with a little splash of the Hitchcocks. Of course, […]
Neil Gaiman wrote and directed Statuesque, a short silent movie for Sky TV starring Bill Nighy and Amanda Palmer as part of their Twelve Films Of Christmas season. Except the budget overran so they had to cut it down to eleven. Statuesque survived. And here it is, shoved up on YouTube (it’s okay, Neil blogged […]
