Following Neill Blomkamp’s impressive debut with District 9, we couldn’t wait to see what the inventive new filmmaker would deliver next. Four years after District 9, Blomkamp gave us Elysium, a visually stunning but ultimately disappointing sci-fi film with bad performances from pretty much everyone except Matt Damon. With Chappie about to hit theaters and all this talk of his new Alien movie, Blomkamp has our full attention, and he’s using this opportunity to discuss what went wrong with Elysium.

Last year, Christian Bale signed on to headline The Deep Blue Good-by, reuniting him with 3:10 to Yuma director James Mangold. It’s been a while since we’ve gotten an update on the project, but today’s latest news puts The Deep Blue Good-by on our must-see list: Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike has joined the cast, and after watching her go toe-to-toe with Ben Affleck, we’re excited to watch what happens when she’s acting opposite Bale.

‘The Riot Club’ Trailer: Watch Some Spoiled Rich Kids Act Rotten

EDIT

As if you needed another reason to be annoyed by white male privilege and spoiled rich kids, the first trailer for The Riot Club has arrived. The film unites two male stars from two big YA movie franchises—Sam Claflin from The Hunger Games and Max Irons from Divergent—which should be an attractive draw for the younger female audience. And to appeal to the more discerning movie-goer, The Riot Club comes from director Lone Scherfig, who previously helmed An Education.

There they are: the live-action version of the title band from the upcoming movie of Jem and the Holograms. From left to right that’s Hayley Kiyoko as Aja, Aubrey Peeples as Jem, and Stephanie Scott as Kimber. (What a diss to Shana!) Not pictured: Jem’s earrings, so at this point we cannot confirm that Jem’s holographic computer (and sweet earrings) Synergy will be a part of the film (and if it’s not, I am not interested). Here’s the film’s official plot synopsis:

‘While We’re Young’ Trailer: Ben Stiller Refuses to Act His Age

EDIT
by Matt Singer 2 days ago
I really want to see While We’re Young and I’m terrified to see it at the same time. I love writer/director Noah Baumbach (he’s the guy who made The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg, and Frances Ha), and I can really relate to the premise of an older, childless married couple trying to recapture their youth. But I think I might relate to that premise a little too strongly.

When The Avengers arrived in 2012, the massive final battle between Earth’s mightiest heroes and Loki’s alien army ended up being much bigger and more exciting than the trailers suggested. From the sound of things, we may be in for a similar treat with Avengers 2. In a new interview, writer/director Joss Whedon discussed many aspects of the upcoming sequel, but it’s his comments about the Avengers 2 ending that should get you the most interested.

Yesterday saw the release of a new Avengers 2 poster focusing solely on Iron Man. It was a welcome break from the earlier, overcrowded Avengers 2 poster. At the time, Robert Downey, Jr. promised a “big announcement” on March 5, and while we still don't know what that announcement will be, it looks like we'll be getting new Avengers 2 posters each day as a countdown. Today, we have another new poster featuring Hulk doing what Hulk does best — Hulking out.

As Spectre continues filming, we are treated today to another dispatch from the Bond 24 set. The last video blog focused on the snowy shoot on the top of the Austrian mountains and this new installment features new behind the scenes footage of Daniel Craig as James Bond as well as Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), and Ben Whishaw (Q).

Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Alien’ Will Pretend ‘Alien 3’ and ‘Alien: Resurrection’ Never Happened

EDIT
by Matt Singer 2 days ago
Neill Blomkamp is currently out on the press trail for his upcoming sci-fi movie Chappie. But mostly he’s stumping for his initially theoretical, now-official Alien sequel, because that’s pretty much all he’s talking about. It’s definitely his next project, and it will definitely star Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, who has done battle with H.R. Giger’s drippy xenomorphs in four previous Alien films.
