ARROW Recap: “The Man Under the Hood”

by     Posted 7 hours ago

arrow-recap

Arrow went under the hood this week for an hour that was more about advancing character relationships than it was about kicking ass.  That’s not to say this episode lacked action; far from it!  It’s just that when a show is as consistently high-flying and explosive as Arrow, the relatively quieter episodes tend to stand out all the more.  Honestly, we needed it this week, as certain characters have recently struggled to get their screen time when they have to share it with the villain of the week.  No more.  Slade/Deathstroke is the man of the hour, and it’s going to take the combined efforts of Oliver & Co. to bring him down.  Hit the jump for this week’s Arrow recap, “The Man Under the Hood.”

Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Will Feature Anna Paquin in a “Cameo” Role as Rogue

When director Bryan Singer was done editing X-Men: Days of Future Past, Anna Paquin had been left on the cutting-room floor.  According to a new report, it now seems as if the mutant known as Rogue has managed to find some screentime in the mutant mash-up after all.  Although the new X film unites the casts of two separate runs of X-Men films, Paquin’s role – which was small to begin with considering all that star power on screen – initially ended up as an editing casualty a few months back.  However, the film’s final trailer included her name in the credits, and now a Fox rep confirms that she’ll indeed have a small part to play.  Hit the jump for more.

Frank Miller's Sin City A Dame to Kill For Storyboard Images Slice

In addition to some recently released live-action images, we’ve now got a look at some of Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For storyboard images used for the film.  To me, they look like panels from Miller’s source material, which makes sense considering his films are aimed at bringing the pages of his graphic novels to life.  Plenty of style on display here, but we’ll have to wait until later this summer to see if the sequel’s got the substance to match.  *FYI, the images could be considered NSFW depending on how uptight your workplace is.

Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema have released the first If I Stay trailer for director R.J. Cutler’s (Nashville) drama.  Based on the Gayle Forman novel of the same name, the film stars Chloe Grace Moretz as a young girl facing a tough decision between pursuing her musical dreams at Julliard or staying close to home with the love of her life (Jamie Blackley).  Circumstances are further complicated when a life-changing accident throws her life off completely off balance.  I’m not familiar with the novel, but it’s easy to see why the story’s central relationship is so beloved among readers, and this trailer suggests that the filmmakers have obviously taken great pains to bring that bond to the screen in as honest a way as possible.

Hit the jump to watch the If I Stay trailer.  The film also stars Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Aisha Hinds, and Stacy KeachIf I Stay opens in theaters August 22nd.

20th Century Fox has released a final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer for director Bryan Singer’s superhero “inbetweenquel,” and man does it have everything you could ask for in a mutant-mashup movie.  We get way more setup – along with a look at just how extensive and vital a role Wolverine plays in the plot – with plenty of superpowers on display, promising an action-packed payoff.  The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  The trailer does a great job at summing up the premise, which highlights the caper aspect of the plot.  Its only downside is the poor choice of music; even Quicksilver looks good here!

Hollywood! Adapt This: DARKSTALKERS

darkstalkers-movie

Hopefully you caught our exclusive premiere of the Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist teaser trailer and images just a couple of days ago. (If not, what are you waiting for?)  It got me to thinking that Hollywood! Adapt This! should take a look back on previous video game adaptations, specifically those of fighting games, and that I should also suggest a property that’s ripe for a new adaptation. This line of thinking led me to the rather unique take on fighting games that places its characters in a highly stylized Gothic horror world.  That’s right, it’s time for a Darkstalkers movie.  Hollywood!  Adapt this!  Hit the jump for more.

Benedict Cumberbatch Rules Himself out of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and DOCTOR WHO

by     Posted 4 days ago

benedict-cumberbatch-star-wars-doctor-who

According to Benedict Cumberbatch Star Wars and Doctor Who are two franchises he won’t be a part of in the near future.  For Star Wars: Episode VII, fronted by his Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams, it wasn’t for lack of trying on Cumberbatch’s part.  It appears as though he would have liked a part in in the highly anticipated film, but, alas, he will not appear on the casting sheet.  Cumberbatch was rumored to have a role in the film quite a few months ago, but we’ve yet to hear any official word (ie, from the studio itself) one way or the other.  As for Doctor Who, it certainly sounds as if Cumberbatch has a zero level of interest in ever joining the franchise.  Honest truths or studio spin?  You make the call after the jump.
