A new trailer has just been released for director Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film will be the follow up to Snyder’s Man of Steel (2013), with Henry Cavill (Stardust, The Man from UNCLE) and Oscar-nominee Amy Adams (American Hustle, Big Eyes) reprising their roles as Superman and Lois Lane, and introducing Ben Affleck (The Town, Argo) in the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne. Honestly, it already looks terrible, but I’ll let you judge for yourself. In preparation for Warner Bros/DC Comics big screen production of Justice League, which is expected in theaters in 2017, the film will also introduce Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6, Furious 7) in the role of Wonder Woman (with an independent Wonder Woman movie also expected in theaters in 2017) and Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian, Bullet in the Head) in the role of Aquaman. And yes, there will be an independent Aquaman movie coming out in 2018, along with The Flash, who will be played by Ezra Miller (We Need To Talk About Kevin, The Perks of Being A Wallflower) and may be making a brief appearance in this movie. In other words, once Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out, it’s right back to milking the comic books. Continue reading →
In anticipation of the upcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton, original member Dr. Dre will be releasing his first studio album since 1999’s iconic album 2001. The new album is called Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre and will be Dre’s third studio release. Fans have been waiting for Dre’s next studio release ever since he announced a new album titled Detox would be forthcoming in 2002. Since then, however, the album’s release has been put on hold several times, owing to various outside projects, including developing his record label Aftermath Entertainment with artists like Eminem and 50 Cent, and his Beats by Dre series. However rumors persisted throughout the last decade about the album’s existence, fueled by artists like Snoop Dogg who claimed to have heard the project in its entirety. Then in 2010, Dre released the single ‘Kush’, and then another single the next year with Eminem titled ‘I Need A Doctor’, which the two performed together at the 2011 Grammy Awards. Then back in July, Dre announced that the original Detox conception had been scrapped for a new project inspired by the new movie Straight Outta Compton that would be released in August, and tomorrow that album will finally be available for fans! Dre has also announced that the artist royalties from the new project will be donated to the city of Compton to fund an art center for upcoming and aspiring artists in the area. So fans, rejoice! and check out the new album on Apple Music today. Straight Outta Compton opens in theaters August 14th.
Fans of Jennifer Lawrence can now get a copy of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1 on Blu-Ray/DVD, but the Oscar-winner is also back on the big-screen in a new drama that reunites here with Silver Linings Playbook-costar Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, American Sniper), titled Serena. Directed by Susanne Bier (After The Wedding, Love Is All You Need) from screenwriter Christopher Kyle‘s adaptation of Ron Rash‘s novel, the story follows industrial-tycoon George Pemberton, who must choose between the future of his timber-empire and his marriage to the beautiful but cunning Serena. The film looks like it is really well done, and the acting appears on-par, but considering it’s a period-love drama (the story takes place in Great Depression-era North Carolina), it will most likely only appeal to a certain crowd. Nevertheless, if you’re a fan of either Lawrence or Cooper, go and check it out. You can see the trailer here on MADE.
The new Biblical epic from director Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Gladiator) is scheduled to open in theaters on December 12th. Featuring an all-star cast lead by Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Rises, Terminator: Salvation), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, Need For Speed), Joel Edgerton (Warrior, The Great Gatsby), Sigourney Weaver (Alien, Avatar), Ben Kinglsey (Schindler’s List, Shutter Island), and John Turturro (O Brother Where Art Thou, Transformers), the film chronicles the story of Moses and his plight to lead the enslaved Jewish people against the cruel Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses. Check out the trailer here on MADE.
Two big releases for next March are now being converted into 3D format before the final cut is seen by audiences around the globe. The upcoming crime-thriller Need For Speed, starring Aaron Paul in his first big film appearance since AMC’s Breaking Bad, is being converted into a 3D format before its release next month. Paramount Pictures has also decided to convert Darren Aronofsky’s new biblical drama, Noah, to 3D for its release to worldwide audiences. Unlike Need For Speed, however, at this point Noah‘s 3D version will only be released to foreign audiences. This was a last minute decision made by Paramount in an attempt to boost foreign interest in the film, which in the United States is expected to pull in a decent amount of profit considering it revolves around one of the most famous Bible stories and has Oscar-winner Russell Crowe leading in the title role. Need For Speed is set for release here in the States on March 14th, with Noah following two weeks later on the 28th. Noah also features an all star cast, including Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, and Anthony Hopkins. You can check out the full trailer above.
Since the electrifying conclusion to AMC’s Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul has turned his attention to the big screen. His acting talents earned him several Emmy awards for his role as Jesse Pinkman, and now the young actor will be taking on more leading roles, starting this March. Paul will be taking the lead role in director Scott Waugh’s high speed action-drama Need For Speed. Paul plays a street racer who plans to take revenge on the wealthy businessman who framed him and sent him to prison in a high stakes cross-country race. The film costars Chillie Mo, Dominic Cooper, and Dakota Johnson and is due out on the 14th. Check out the trailer here on MADE.
Breaking Bad not only made Bryan Cranston a huge star, it also introduced Hollywood to the talents of his costar Aaron Paul. Paul won 2 Emmys and was nominated for a total of 4 for his role as Jesse Pinkman, Walter White’s young associate and former student. Since the series finale he has received a lot of offers for various roles from many A-list names. He is currently working on Ridley Scott’s upcoming biblical epic Exodus, in which Paul plays the role of Joshua, the apprentice to Moses (Christian Bale) who played a big role in the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Exodus is scheduled to come out next December, but before that Paul will be seen in 3 movies throughout the course of the year. The comedy/drama from director Pascal Chaumeil, A Long Way Down, will costar Toni Collette and Rosamund Pike, as well as writer/director Kat Candler’s drama Hellion, in which Paul plays a father who must clean up his act in order to regain custody of his son. Paul will also appear in the action-packed street racing drama Need For Speed, which is being directed by Scott Waugh (Bruce Almighty, Last of the Mohicans) and is scheduled to come out in March. You can watch the new trailer for the movie right here on MADE. For more news on Aaron Paul, just stay tuned; I doubt it will be difficult to hear some news regarding his career over the course of the new year.
