Actors Chris Pine (Commander James T. Kirk) and Zachary Quinto (Spock) will do at least one more film in the reboot series and the twelfth installment of the science fiction movie "Star Trek."
Collider reported that J.J. Abrams won't be there to helm the third reboot sequel as his hands are busy tending the upcoming and another space saga "Star Wars Episode VII." However, he later confirmed that he will act as one of the "Star Trek 3" producers.
Rumored to have been slated for a 2016 release, fansite Trekmovie indicated in their publication that the initial production of the film may start in Asia particularly in the bustling city of Seoul, South Korea. more >>
Earlier this year, reports indicated that directors Anthony and Joe Russo had been signed again to direct a third installment for the superhero film "Captain America." The helmers confirmed the reports in March 2014 with Kevin Feige set as producer and Christopher Markus and Stephen McFreely to once again write the screenplay.
The continuation of the franchise was brought out following the record-breaking April box office opening for the previous "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." This goes on to say that the Marvel film series is indeed a "hot solo-movie commodity," as Screen Rant put it.
Meanwhile, casting rumors indicated Jeremy Renner's involvement in the project. more >>
Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon stars in the new film "The Good Lie" and recently quoted Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church while promoting the film.
During a press conference for the movie, which tells the story of four Sudanese refugees who flee a vicious civil war and arrive at a refugee camp in Kenya, which eventually gives them the opportunity to make a life in the U.S., she discussed a statement made by the Purpose Driven Life author related to the perception Americans might have about refugees, such as the ones seen in her new film.
"I was talking to Rick Warren yesterday, he said sometimes we assume that if people are poor they're not intelligent or they don't have anything to offer to society," Witherspoon said. "[Sometimes] these are people who were top of their field, and they're doctors, they're educators, they're community leaders, and essentially they're [just] displaced." more >>
"The Good Lie" opens in theaters this week and tells the true story of the lost boys of the Sudan; refugees who fled from a horrifying civil war that ripped that land apart in the 1980s and '90s.
The film opens up with a group of children fleeing the Sudan by foot, traveling thousands of miles to a camp for refugees. During the trip, these young Sudanese girls and boys encounter soldiers and various obstacles along the way and manage to make it to the camp, but not without losing a few of their friends.
They eventually grow older and are taken in by families in the U.S. who work together with faith-based charities. Four of the refugees, Mamere (Arnold Oceng), Jeremiah (Ger Duany), Paul (Emmanuel Jal) and Abital (Kuoth Weil), are eventually faced with the task of adjusting to American culture. more >>
With the principal photography and filming production already wrapped up, it won't be that much long before fans of the Jurassic fiction can finally take glimpse of the upcoming installment by Colin Trevorrow, "Jurassic World," on the big screen.
Slated for release this coming June 12, 2015, the first look inside the visitor's center of "Jurassic World" was recently revealed through the movie's official Twitter page.
Slightly shaken and a little bit groggy, the image shows what appears to be an interior of a display center with small educational podiums set and labeled for each dinosaur pieces, including that of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. more >>
The highly anticipated film "Left Behind" hits theaters this Friday, but not even Nicolas Cage's star power can save the doomed rapture-inspired reboot.
Vic Armstrong's latest directorial project arrives with Cage in the role of a prodigal airline captain Rayford Steele who is among a small group of survivors in the midst of the Second Coming. Best known for his roles during the '90's that include "Face/Off" and "City of Angels," Cage seems like a non sequitur in "Left Behind." Also, the actor's notoriously monotone and soft-spoken voice leaves viewers distracted from what should be his character's completely unrealistic plight to safely land a damaged plane full of people while halfway between New York and London.
Rounding out the cast of "Left Behind" is Lea Thompson, Jordin Sparks, and Chad Michael Murray, but each actor offers only a weak portrayal of what life would be like in a world of darkness and chaos. In the role of a single mother, Sparks attempts to convey the desperation and agony of losing a child. However, the "American Idol" star struggles through the scene, unconvincingly pointing a gun at others as well as to her own head in a proposed fit of paranoia. more >>
