New 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Photos Find Tom Hardy in Trouble

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Mon, 21/07/2014 - 19:45

Entertainment Weekly continues to release images from its Comic-Con 2014 issue. Today, we get a new look at Mad Max: Fury Road. The first photo finds Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky muzzled and strapped to the hood of a fast moving vehicle, as Josh Helman rides above him decked out in war paint. We also get another look at Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa standing next to a deadly looking armored Semi-Truck filled with mutants from the apocalyptic wasteland.

Mad Max: Fury Road is a sequel that also serves as a partial reboot, with Tom Hardy taking over the role of Mad Max from Mel Gibson. Max is still dealing with the tragic loss of his wife, events that were depicted in the original Mad Max from 1980. He teams up with Charlize Theron's Furiosa, who is attempting a long journey back to her childhood home. Along the way, she is being chased by Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne, who starred as Toecutter in the first film).

Mad Max: Fury Road will be a part of the Warner Bros. panel at Comic-Con 2014 on Saturday, July 26th. We can expect the first footage, and perhaps even a trailer.

Mad Max: Fury Road comes to theaters May 15th, 2015 and stars Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Josh Helman, Nathan Jones. The film is directed by George Miller.

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Mon, 21/07/2014 - 19:02

Idris Elba is in talks to star in Warner Bros.' King Arthur project, which has been given the new title Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.

The actor will portray Bedivere, who serves as the right hand man to Arthur's father, and is tasked with teaching Arthur how to lead an army. The title character has not been cast at this time, but testing for the coveted role will begin in August.

We reported in April that Warner Bros. has issued a July 22, 2016 release date for Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, a fantasy re-telling of the King Arthur legend that will be the first in a proposed six-movie series.

Guy Ritchie (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) is directing from a script by Joby Harold (Edge of Tomorrow), with the writer also serving as a producer alongside Lionel Wigram, Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell. No production schedule has been given at this time.

The project reunites Idris Elba with director Guy Ritchie, who both worked together on RocknRolla. The actor also voices Shere Khan in Disney's upcoming animated adaptation The Jungle Book, and he is also attached to star in the action-thriller Bastille Day.

'Pixels' Unveils Its Lineup of Classic Video Game Characters

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Mon, 21/07/2014 - 18:57

Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today that the studio has brought together an extraordinary number of iconic video game companies, whose classic characters - including PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Centipede&#174, Galaga, Frogger, Q*bert, and Space Invaders - will be featured in the highly-anticipated action comedy Pixels, starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, and Brian Cox, and directed by Chris Columbus. The film will be released on May 15, 2015.

In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Michelle Monaghan plays the team's unique weapons specialist.

The action-comedy is directed by Chris Columbus from a story by Tim Herlihy and a screenplay by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling, based on the original short film of the same name by Patrick Jean.

The film is produced by Adam Sandler, Chris Columbus, Mark Radcliffe, and Allen Covert. Executive Producers are Barry Bernardi, Michael Barnathan, Jack Giarraputo, Heather Parry, Tim Herlihy, Steve Koren, Patrick Jean, Benjamin Darras, Johnny Alves, Matias Boucard, Seth Gordon, and Ben Waisbren. The film, a Columbia Pictures presentation in association with LStar Capital, is a Happy Madison / 1492 Films production in association with One More Production.

Companies with classic arcade games that are teaming with Sony Pictures on the film include:

Atari&#174 Interactive: (Asteroids&#174, Breakout&#174, Centipede&#174 and Missile Command&#174)

Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. (Frogger)

BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. (PAC-MAN, Galaga, and Dig Dug)

Nintendo (Donkey Kong)

Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. (Q*bert)

Taito Corporation (Space Invaders)

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (Joust, Defender, Robotron and Wizard of Wor)

Commenting on the announcement, the film's director, Chris Columbus, said,

"There would be no way to make the movie without these legendary characters - they are as important to the film as the roles that Adam, Kevin, Michelle, Peter, Josh, and Brian are playing. It was a real thrill to see everything come together exactly as we envisioned it, and we're grateful to have all of these fantastic companies on board."

Producer Allen Covert added,

"These classic characters are part of the DNA of the project, so it was critical that we work together to bring them on board. Fortunately, they were all extremely receptive. We approached them with a deep love for their characters and a respect for the elements that make them unique and iconic, and we've worked with the companies to incorporate those elements into the film."

At Comic-Con San Diego, from July 24-27, arcaders 13 years of age and older with Comic-Con badges will have the chance to engage with many of these classic original arcade games and try them out again as the studio features a Pixels Electric Dreams Factory arcade at the Hard Rock Hotel, 209 5th Ave., San Diego.

Said Dwight Caines, president, Theatrical Marketing for Sony Pictures,

"There's no better way for the core Comic-Con audience to interact with the movie than to get a hands-on refresher on the games that will be a part of it."

Pixels comes to theaters May 15th, 2015 and stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox. The film is directed by Chris Columbus.

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Will Not Feature 'Planet Hulk' Storyline

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Mon, 21/07/2014 - 18:28

Earlier this month, we reported that the long-rumored Planet Hulk story line may be used in the impending sequel Guardians of the Galaxy 2. This would follow the Guardians as they team-up with Hulk on another planet and go on an adventure with him. The end of the movie finds r Hulk returning to Earth along with the Guardians, which leads the villainous Thanos to make his way to Earth.

However, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn revealed in a recent interview with The Playlist that the Planet Hulk rumors are "100% bullshit."

"I can answer that question very easily: it is absolute, 100% bulls--t. It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet. There's not going to be a Planet Hulk movie, there was never going to be a Planet Hulk movie, there was never a plan for the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy - I wouldn't want the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy! And it's all a bunch of complete bullshit."

Back in February 2013, a rumor popped up revealing that Marvel wants to make a Planet Hulk movie for Phase Three. While that rumor has been shot down several times over the past year and a half, Mark Ruffalo revealed last month that Marvel is finally warming up to making Planet Hulk a reality, even though he later stated that he doesn't want to be a part of it, since Hulk's human alter-ego Bruce Banner would not be featured in the story.

While doing press for next month's Guardians of the Galaxy, producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige debunked those rumors once again, stating that there are no immediate plans for Planet Hulk. Here's what he had to say, when asked if the challenges in adapting that story line is why the movie has not materialized yet.

"Well that's why there are no plans for Planet Hulk anytime soon. I think what's cool about the Planet Hulk story is it's all Hulk. He's a gladiator, he's fighting all these creatures on another world. Yes, some of those creatures show up in [Guardians of the Galaxy], which makes people think, 'Oh, maybe it could exist.' And maybe it could exist, someday. I don't think that's the first place we would go though for the very reason that you stated, which is, if we were ever able to do a standalone Hulk movie, 60 percent of the fun would be seeing Mark Ruffalo leading a Marvel movie -- and that's what we would do if we ever went down that road."

However, he did say it may happen sometime down the line, although it isn't clear when.

"After the first Avengers, Iron Man had his own movie, Thor had his own movie, Captain America had his own movie, and Widow and Fury were in The Winter Soldier. So it was really about, frankly, saving somebody so that the only place you could get Hulk between Avengers movies is the next Avengers movie, so [director Joss Whedon] could continue to play with that in [Avengers: Age of Ultron]. Where we go after that, we'll see."

Would you like to see a Planet Hulk movie starring Mark Ruffalo some day? Chime in with your thoughts below.

Planet Hulk is in development and stars Mark Ruffalo.
