What Luke Bracey Looks Like as Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy 3

7 August 2017 10:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you still haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 yet, there will be some Spoilers below, particularly for one of the five Guardians 2 post-credit scenes. By this point, we're guessing that most people who wanted to see this superhero sequel have seen it alread. But if there are some that are still waiting for the Blu-ray and DVD release later this month, we're giving you a fair warning. This is your last chance to avoid spoilers for the Guardians 2 post-credit scene, which introduces a long-awaited character into the McU, with one artist offering a glimpse at what a certain actor may look like as this character.

If you have seen the movie and the five post-credit scenes, perhaps the most intriguing of these scenes is one where Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) from The Sovereign showcases the coccoon that will be used to give birth to Adam Warlock. Kevin Feige »

Ericson Core to direct Damien Chazelle thriller The Claim

6 August 2017 6:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ericson Core, director of the Point Break remake, has signed on to helm The Claim, a thriller scripted by Oscar winner Damien Chazelle, which is being produced by Scott Clayton of Oceanside Media and Russell Levine of Route One Entertainment.

“Ericson has an inimitable level of skill behind the camera as a director and cinematographer. Under his masterful direction and keen eye for captivating storytelling, and Chazelle’s gripping screenplay, The Claim has all the elements to be a powerful and enthralling theatrical experience,” stated Clayton.

“Ericson embraces the emotional elements of the script which sets it apart from other character-driven thrillers,” added Levine. “This exceptional script is the master work of a gifted screenwriter.”

Coming Soon reports that The Claim “centers on a single father with a criminal background who must uncover the whereabouts of his kidnapped daughter while fighting the mysterious claims of another couple who insist that the child is theirs. »

Newswire: Ericson Core to direct Damien Chazelle’s kidnapping drama The Claim

2 August 2017 6:50 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

According to Deadline, Point Break remake director Ericson Core has signed on to direct The Claim, a drama film that doesn’t sound like it would be an especially big deal if not for the fact that it was written by La La Land’s Damien Chazelle. The movie is about a father with a “criminal background” whose daughter gets kidnapped, but while trying to track her down, a different couple shows up and makes “mysterious claims” that the child actually belongs to them. That makes it sound like the other couple was probably behind the kidnapping, but maybe the daughter was taken by a third party, and the criminal dad has to fight with the mysterious couple to prove that she’s really his daughter and not theirs.

Beyond Point Break, Core also directed the sports movie Invincible and worked as a cinematographer on The Fast And The Furious »

Damien Chazelle's thriller The Claim gets its director

2 August 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Aug 3, 2017

La La Land and Whiplash's Damien Chazelle has written a thrilled called The Claim, which will now be directed by Ericson Core...

Damien Chazelle has had one of the most interesting (and fastest) career rises in recent Hollywood memory. Only a few years ago, he worked on screenplays for horror movies like The Last Exorcism Part II (he also had a hand in 10 Cloverfield Lane), but the 32-year-old filmmaker now has an Oscar for his directing of La La Land, which followed his previous critical hit, Whiplash.

Chazelle's gone back to genre writing with The Claim, a new thriller which, at least until now, was looking for a director.

Deadline reports that producers Scott Clayton and Russell Levine have tapped Ericson Core »

The Tao of Nicolas Cage: Gone in 60 Seconds

14 April 2017 3:51 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Before Dom was flexing his muscles Cage was getting fast and furious in order to protect his family.

This weekend movie theaters are going to be packed with hordes of people eager to check out The Fate of the Furious, the 8th film in the unexpectedly super popular Fast and Furious franchise. And that’s all fine and well. I enjoy the films; they’re dumb, stupid, exciting fun. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever, but we must remember that a year before Dom and his crew ripped off Point Break, the legendary Nicolas Cage was snatching up cars left and right and doing so in under 60 seconds.

Of course I’m going to talk about Gone in 60 Seconds.

Cage stars as the Memphis Raines, a notorious car thief that retired a number of years back in an effort to go straight. And he does. Memphis is working at a little go-kart track for kids, teaching »

Producer Bill Mechanic and star Luke Bracey on making 'Hacksaw Ridge'

29 January 2017 8:13 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

(l-r) Luke Bracey with Mel Gibson. (Photo credit: Mark Rogers).

It was third time lucky when Mel Gibson signed on to Hacksaw Ridge in 2014, having been offered the film by producer Bill Mechanic twice before.

.I approached Mel in 2002, in 2010, and then again in 2014, which is the first time he said yes,. says Mechanic..

.He's the only one I approached twice. I guess in my mind he was always the perfect director for it. I just had to get it in his mind that he was the perfect director for it..

Before his third attempt, Mechanic brought on Randall Wallace, who wrote Braveheart, to take a pass at the script.

.Randall's changes were not earth shattering,. says Mechanic. .He won't be credited in the final screenplay. But I think it might have made it more appealing to Mel to read [that] Randy was working on it..

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

25 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

Hacksaw Ridge review: “Heart-poundingly intense, but altogether outstanding”

24 January 2017 8:28 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hacksaw Ridge review: Andrew Garfield plays WWII hero Desmond Doss in this thrilling, impactful effort from director Mel Gibson.

Read our Hacksaw Ridge review below. The film opens across the UK on January 26th, 2017.

Mel Gibson hasn’t directed a film since 2006. That movie was the impressive Apocalypto, a film not in the English language that secured a tad over $120 million at the worldwide box-office, from a reported $40 million budget. The years that followed were not particularly kind to Gibson, both personally and, as as result, professionally. Now clear of his demons with Hollywood starting to welcome him in again – plus an acting career that is also looking on the up following last year’s impressive Blood Father, Gibson has delivered possibly his best directorial effort yet, the World War II drama Hacksaw Ridge.

‘Ridge’ revolves around the real-life character Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield), a young twenty-something intent on helping his country during WWII. »
