When I was a young man and the Internet was new, I made the same joke every time I dialed-up and heard those dissonant, scratchy tones. “Chhhhhhh-CHHHHHH-Chhhhhh” my modem would bray, and as soon as there was silence I'd turn to whomever was in the room and conspiratorially say, "all right, we're in."
'Transcendence,' the first feature film directed by Christopher Nolan's longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister, is two straight hours of that “all right, we're in,” with (slightly) updated peripherals. Featuring more technobabble than a middling episode of 'Star Trek: Voyager,' Rebecca Hall and Johnny Depp star as husband and wife computer geniuses who, along with artificial intelligence labs across the country, are attacked by a band of “neo-Luddite” terrorists.
We're just a couple of weeks away from the unveiling of 'Transcendence,' Wally Pfister's directorial debut, and if you're not excited enough about it, Warner Bros. has just released six -- count 'em, six! -- clips from the new sci-fi film. We have officially reached peak promotion.
UPDATE: For what it's worth, we spoke to some high-level studio sources who flatly denied the below report and stated it's "not at all" true. Filming is still scheduled to begin on April 21 and Trank himself is on set right now.
The 'Fantastic Four' movie has not been without its hiccups, but few superhero movies are. We didn't think much of the troubles and when the cast was finally announced - Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell - we assumed it would be a fairly smooth ride to the start of production this summer. But, according to a shocking new report, Fox is looking to reboot it's reboot: they reportedly have fired director Josh Trank, thrown out the existing script and are looking to recast the movie.
Josh Trank's 'Fantastic Four' reboot caused much speculation as of late as various actors and actresses have been mentioned for roles. Michael B. Jordan of 'Fruitvale Station' has long been linked to the role of Johnny Storm/Human Torch (a role previously portrayed onscreen by Chris Evans), but now it looks like the other members of his team have been found!
Though covering much of the same ground as the first one, the latest 'Transcendence' trailer plays up the role of the terrorists (headed by Kate Mara) who are looking to stop people like Johnny Depp from achieving the singularity. It seems as thought it's meant to show that this science-fiction film is going to have action alongside its heady ideas.
Netflix breakout original drama 'House of Cards' broke more than a few hearts when news of its second season likely closing out the series broke, though thankfully the streaming service dug its claws into Frank Underwood just a little longer. Just before the season 2 premiere, Netflix has confirmed that Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright will return for 'House of Cards' season 3!
Valentine's Day celebrators have but a few weeks to get their act together, but who needs grand romantic gestures when we have the February 14 premiere of Netflix's 'House of Cards' season 2? The long wait for our beloved Kevin Spacey political thriller will soon be up, and we've got a brand-new gallery of photos from the season to celebrate. Let the butchery begin!
After a tortured development, it looks like the much-talked-about 'Fantastic Four' reboot is finally starting to gain some real traction. The current word is that Simon Kinberg's rewrite of the script is finally finished and going out to actors, who will soon audition in various combinations to see who clicks. Longtime fans of Marvel's first family of superheroes may want to sit down before they see who is being eyed for Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman and the Human Torch...
Welcome back! Following last week's cryptic 'House of Cards' season 2 promo featuring Kevin Spacey and his wiley rubber band, Netflix has officially doubled down on promotion of the new episodes preparing to launch on February 14. It's hunt or be hunted as Frank Underwood takes the office of the Vice President, and we have two kinds of pain for you: both an epic new trailer, and a full poster!
A few weeks ago we heard the distressing news that Netflix's 'House of Cards' season 2 would likely end the series altogether, given leading star Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright's pressing film careers, but it seems the breakout political drama may have hope after all. Netflix brass now believe a third season to be in the 'Cards,' with negotiations already underway.
