It's official: Venom, starring Tom Hardy, has started filming...

Just under a year before it’s due in cinemas, cameras have started rolling on Sony’s long-promised Venom movie.

The film, spun out of the Spider-Man movie universe (at least sort of), will star Tom Hardy in the title role. He’s joined in the ensemble by Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott and Scott Haze. Ruben Fleischer, of Zombieland fame, is directing this one.

The start of production on the film was honoured in the now-traditional fashion by a Tweet. Here’s the official day one Tweet that was sent out from the film’s official Twitter account…

Marvel would consider all-female superhero movie

Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson throws down the gauntlet and Kevin Feige responds: why not an all-female Marvel movie?

During the recent press junket for the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, actress Tessa Thompson -- who is one of the movie’s highlights as Valkyrie -- mentioned being at the head of a group of Marvel stars who approached studio president Kevin Feige about the idea of doing an all-women Marvel movie. Think an Avengers-style picture starring Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch, Valkyrie, Gamora, Mantis, Wasp, Pepper Potts, and perhaps Sharon Carter.

When Den Of Geek Us had a chance to sit down one-on-one with Feige a little later, here’s what he said about the moment and the idea. “We were on the lot at Pinewood in Atlanta, and yes I got tapped on the shoulder and I turned around and there was almost every great actress that we were working with. »

Phantom Thread trailer: Daniel Day-Lewis' final film

Daniel Day-Lewis is an eccentric fashion designer for the elite in the Phantom Thread trailer...

Daniel Day-Lewis has justifiably acquired a reputation as the most eccentrically chameleonic actors out there. However, this past summer, the 60-year-old actor and three-time Best Lead Actor Oscar winner announced his most shocking role to date: retiree. Consequently, the upcoming historical drama, Phantom Thread will purportedly stand as Day-Lewis’s final film role.

If the pledge holds, he’s going out with a bang, reunited with director Paul Thomas Anderson for an introspective character study.

The Phantom Thread trailer showcases what (for now,) stands as Daniel Day-Lewis’s last onscreen role before he takes a proverbial curtain call from the movie industry. Here, he delves into 1950s London, playing Reynolds Woodcock, a fashion designer and dressmaker for Britain’s high society types, be it royalty, celebrities, heiresses and the generally wealthy.

Geostorm: back to the 90s with Dean Devlin’s Armageddon 2

15 hours ago

Ed Kegenof Oct 24, 2017

It’s the end of the world yet again in the sci-fi disaster thriller, Geostorm. An unofficial sequel to Michael Bay’s Armageddon...?

With Independence Day, director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin managed to single-handedly resuscitate the disaster movie - a genre that had wheezed to a halt following an increasingly daft sequence of examples in the late 70s and early 80s (for a stunning night in, check out the low-rent majesty of Meteor, The Swarm or When Time Ran Out). Sure, Independence Day was an alien invasion movie straight out of the 50s, but its scenes of global panic and destruction were pure Irwin Allen. A certified hit in 1996, Independence Day sparked a wave of incendiary movies in the same vein, with scenarios varying from exploding volcanoes (Dante’s Peak and, well, Volcano), a giant monster (Godzilla) and duelling asteroid movies Deep Impact and Armageddon. »

The Walking Dead season 8 episode 1 review: Mercy

The Walking Dead returns: here's our spoiler-filled look at the season 8 premiere...

This review contains spoilers.

8.1 Mercy

It's strange how coincidences can happen. Earlier this week, prior to watching the eighth season premiere of The Walking Dead, I watched an episode of BoJack Horseman. I'm quite a fan of “the sad horse show,” thought I find it difficult to recommend to other people given just how dark and serious it can turn when it's not making fun animal puns. Without spoiling the particular episode, one of the characters admits that when life becomes overwhelming, a fantasy recurs. That character imagines a distant future in which that character's great-great-grandchild is speaking to classmates about just how well everything turned out for her ancestor, and how said ancestor is one of the grandchild's heroes.

Watching Mercy, I was struck by the recurring motif of Rick, on the cusp of »

Last Action Hero’s failure: Schwarzenegger argues Clinton partly to blame

22 October 2017 9:50 PM, PDT

Last Action Hero failed partly because of a change in politics, argues Arnold Schwarzenegger...

When Arnold Schwarzenneger’s first big action vehicle following Terminator 2 – 1993’s Last Action Hero – went head to head with Jurassic Park at the box office, you don’t need us to tell you that the dinosaurs won. Arnie’s box office power never hit the same heights again either, although True Lies had a go, and in the aftermath of Last Action Hero’s disappointing takings, several reasons were cited.

But the election of Bill Clinton wasn’t one of them.

However, in a new interview, Schwarzengger has reflected on Last Action Hero’s underwhelming box office performance, and part-concluded that new politics had its place in the mix.

“It was one of those things where President Clinton was elected and the press somehow made the whole thing kind of political where they thought, »

Doctor Who series 11: new companions confirmed, new format

22 October 2017 9:41 PM, PDT

Simon Brew Oct 23, 2017

Bradley Walsh is one of three companions for the Doctor in series 11, as format changes to Doctor Who are also confirmed.

Changes ahead in the world of Doctor Who, it’s been confirmed, as series 11 is going to see Jodie Whittaker's Doctor travel with three new companions. What’s more, she’s going to be travelling across fewer episodes, too.

As had been widely rumoured, Jodie Whittaker will be joined by Bradley Walsh in the Tardis for the new run of the show. He’s set to play a character by the name of Graham. New showrunner Chris Chibnall though has said that “the new Doctor is going to need new friends”, and as such he’s also cast Tosin Cole in the role of Ryan, and Mandip Gill as Yasmin.

Also joining the cast is Sharon D Clarke in what’s described as a “recurring” role. »

Claire and Jamie are reunited in an extended Outlander episode that explores the difference between love and intimacy.

This Outlander review contains spoilers.

Time is an unpredictable thing. Sometimes, it steals things from you that you can't get back — emotions of a younger self your older self can no longer feel. Other times, it respects the most precious things you have, the feelings that have come to define you, and lets them endure.

Claire and Jamie's love falls into that second category. When they come together after two decades apart, both are nervous that the love they still feel will have faded in the other. We, as viewers, know this is not the case. We »
