Close to 200 Hollywood stars, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, have signed a statement condemning the "ideologies of hatred" of militant group Hamas, and called for peace and justice in Gaza.
"We, the undersigned, are saddened by the devastating loss of life endured by Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza. We are pained by the suffering on both sides of the conflict and hope for a solution that brings peace to the region," begins the statement, signed by the stars on the website Creative Community For Peace.
"While we stand firm in our commitment to peace and justice, we must also stand firm against ideologies of hatred and genocide which are reflected in Hamas' charter, Article 7 of which reads, 'There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!'" the statement continues. more >>
Sir Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90; the British actor known for his work on "Gandhi," spoke about his religious beliefs and the impact the real-life Gandhi had on him before his death.
"I can't believe, as Gandhi did, that there's only one religion, one form of practicing your credo. I am at a loss," Attenborough told The Scotsman. "I will go on trying because I would be arrogantly stupid not to, but having to adhere to custom and conviction in terms of practice I find destructive rather than constructive. It seems to me that organized, formal religions have done a fair amount of damage in terms of our chances of living without confrontation."
It's a profound statement from the man who worked so hard to tell the story of Gandhi and became known for his work. However, he was haunted by the death of his daughter Jane and his granddaughter Lucy, who both perished in the 2004 tsunami that struck Thailand. Attenborough never accepted his daughter's death and often spoke of the hope that he would see her again. more >>
Fox initially scheduled a "Prometheus" sequel for March 4, 2016, but that won't happen yet as Tim Burton's purported adaptation for "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" is rumored to replace the release date instead.
Director Ridley Scott will not likely to helm the second installment because "The Martian," starring Matt Damon, is already close to its launching date, FashionStyle.com reported.
As of this article's publication date, there are still no official statements announced regarding the upcoming film's casting and production developments. more >>
The seventh installment to the "Fast and Furious" franchise is set to be released on April 3, 2015 in the U.S.
This title will be the first film to take place after the events of "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift." The three previous installments took place in between "2 Fast 2 Furious" and "Tokyo Drift." The title will also mark the final appearance of the late Paul Walker who died on Nov. 30, 2013 while the film was still in production.
In response to his untimely death, the producers have decided that he will be retired off from the film instead of being killed off in a car crash, which is how he died in real life. The scenes will be played out with doubles that have similar body types to Walker with his face placed in via CGI. Earlier this year, it was announced that Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody will be used as stand-ins for the film. more >>
The third title in the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise still has no confirmed release date yet but it is currently slated for a 2016 release.
It is still unclear if the production crew has already started filming yet but it is likely they will be in 2015. Zoe Saldana, who plays Uhura in the film, is currently busy preparing for shooting the Avatar sequel, so it is quite possible that filming the third "Star Trek" title will happen in 2015.
Unlike the first two titles in the franchise, J.J. Abrams won't be directing the third title as he is currently busy putting "Star Wars: Episode VII" together for a December 2015 deadline. It is still unconfirmed as to who will be directing the third title but it will likely to be Joe Cornish, who directed Attack the Block and Adventures of Tintin both in 2011. more >>
The next "Terminator" movie is set to be released on July 1, 2015 and will be called "Terminator: Genisys." The film is not a sequel of any kind but more of a partial reboot to the Terminator franchise.
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns in "Terminator: Genisys" as the T-800 once more, with Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clark as John Connor, and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese. The film will be the fifth film in the series and was initially simply called "Terminator." It was only recently that Genisys was added to the film's title.
The differently spelled Genisys subtitle is speculated to be the name of a new high-tech manufacturing corporation, much like the Cyberdyne Systems in the previous films. Since Paramount Pictures still hasn't released any synopsis of sorts, it would seem plausible that this Genisys company could be the one to cause Judgement Day in the film. more >>
