2. Peter Jackson admits he didn’t know what he was doing on The Hobbit movies

A featurette from the extended edition of The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies has revealed what we suspected all along: Peter Jackson by his own admission didn’t know what the hell he was doing during the making of the bloated Hobbit trilogy. In a shockingly candid piece, enlivened by awesome Kiwi accents, the […]

3. Tom Felton’s “Risen” Moving Release Dates

Tom Felton’s new movieRisen, has changed release dates. Originally scheduled for January 22, 2016 release, MGM and Paramount have decided to move around a couple of release dates to attract larger target audiences.

As Tom Felton’s new film is religion-based, MGM and Paramount have decided to move it to a February release date to attract pre-Easter audience rush. The infamous The Passion of Christ and the recent Son of God, both were successful February releases. The Global Dispatch reports:


“MGM and Paramount Pictures have moved the release of Ben-Hur by nearly six months — from Feb. 26 to Aug. 12. This opened up the date for Risen, another faith-based project, to move up and upon in theaters.

Joseph Fiennes stars as the Roman soldier Clavius searching for Christ’s missing body and “reintroduces us to Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection—and to the Great Commission—not through a disciple or follower’s POV but through the experience of a hardened and skeptical Roman tribune,” according to Sony.

Harry Potter star Tom Felton and Fear the Walking Dead star Cliff Curtis co-star – full synopsis below.

RISEN is an epic biblical story of the weeks immediately following Jesus’ death on the cross, as seen through the eyes of the unbelieving Clavius (Fiennes), a high-ranking Roman military tribune. Clavius and his aide Lucius (Felton) are instructed by Pontius Pilate to ensure that Jesus’ radical followers don’t steal His body and claim resurrection. When the body goes missing within days, Clavius’ mission is to find the body, dispel rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.”


Risen will hit theaters February 19, 2016.

4. WONDER WOMAN cast announced, new photo released

Funny timing, given the debut of Jessica Jones yesterday and the fact that releasing news on Saturday morning seems odd, but WB just released details on the cast of Wonder Woman.

5. Mockingjay Part 2 Movie is Better Than the Book. Real or Not Real?

Last night I got to see a double-feature of Mockingjay parts one and two. I liked getting to do that just to remind myself of the first movie, and to really get immersed back into the story. Also, I got to go with my YADC bud, Jenn from Bookshelfery, so we could fight over Gale and Peeta. Very important stuff, guys. To be honest, I had zero expectations of liking this movie. Actually, after

6. The 10th Anniversary of the “Goblet of Fire” Film

On November 18, 2005, mere months after the second-to-last Harry Potter book (Half-Blood Prince) was published and the end seemed to be drawing to scarily near, Warner Bros brought us back a few steps with the release of their adaption of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

They really did take us back a few steps. On this 10th anniversary of one of our beloved films, we will honor it, but we also want to be honest about it. It would be hard pressed to find a fan whose first reaction to seeing Goblet of Fire was at least tainted a little by confusion.

As fans of the books, we tend to be huge critics of the theatrical adaptions: “Wait a sec, they cut out what? But that is important!” or “Wait a sec, I don’t remember that happening in the books.” This started occurring with fan reactions to Goblet of Fire. In fact, it set president for such critical reactions for the rest of the films. In away, that is a pretty monumental moment to mention on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the film.

Here are our top 6 “Wait a sec…” moments from Goblet of Fire:

1. The very distinct difference between “Book Dumbledore” and “Movie Dumbledore” (aka, the difference between Richard Harris as Dumbledore, and Michael Gambon as Dumbledore), becoming too apparent for the first time:


2. Wait a sec…where is Dobby? (And Charlie Weasley for that matter.)


3. Remember when the Weasley’s used Floo Powder to try and get to the Dursley’s and it went so terribly that it was absolutely hysterical….haha, nope?


4. Wait a sec…if Rita Skeeter never turns into a beetle as her Animagus, how does she find out all that gossip?




5. What’s up with the maze? Where’s all of the obstacles? The Sphinx and Aragog’s offspring?



6. Need we even mention that all men in Goblet of Fire seemed to forget what a haircut was.




But besides our criticisms, and the hard time we give Harry Potter directors (especially since Mike Newell only did Goblet of Fire) we are Harry Potter fans. We love pretty much anything Harry Potter, and we are as protective of the Harry Potter films as we are critical of them. Because we love them we are the only ones allowed to criticize them, no one else is allowed to be that mean.

Here are the top 6 things we loved about Goblet of Fire:

1. Hermione’s and Ron’s perfect Yule Ball outfits (Hermione’s gown and entrance!)



2. The Yule Ball….ah, so beautiful.



3. McGonagall using Ron as a dance partner when teaching the Gryffindors how to dance properly. LOL, that’s awkward in the best way possible:



3. The Quidditch World Cup (that scene was pretty well executed, we must admit!)



4. Cedric Diggory…Hufflepuff’s first moment of glory…




5. Watching Malfoy being turned into a ferret…ah!



6. David Tennant…’nough said.

images (Wait a sec…) ZgJAdaA (There it is!)


Happy 10th Anniversary Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! It’s been a wonderful love-hate relationship, and we plan to continue it for 10 more years to come. We can’t believe it’s been 10 years already.

7. New Daniel Radcliffe Interview with “We Got This Covered”

Daniel Radcliffe has been promoting his new film, Victor Frankenstein, by making a lot of appearances on shows, podcasts, and in interviews with many news sources.

Dan recently sat down for an exclusive interview with We Got This CoveredIn the interview, Dan discussed his character, Igor, working with James McAvoy, and filming in Scotland. Excerpts of the interview can be seen below:


WGTC: What attracted you to this project in the first place? It’s kind of a different take on the classic story that we all know and love.

Daniel Radcliffe: Everyone has an image of Igor as Victor Frankenstein’s hunched over assistant, like Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein. People are expecting to see that, and I felt it was important to be faithful to that image as we open the film. But that image changes about twenty minutes into the film when Victor rescues me, then takes me in and breaks my spine, which is a very intense and painful scene. Then Victor drains Igor’s hump.

What fascinated me about the script was how it revealed Igor’s backstory, how he lived before he met Victor. Everyone has an image and perception of Igor, based on what they’ve seen in the films, and I liked how the script subverted all of my expectations. In the 1931 film the creature was born in the middle of the story; in this film the creature is finished towards the end, so the story is mostly about the relationship between Igor and Victor.

WGTC: What do you think Igor sees in Victor? Why does he help him? 

Daniel Radcliffe: When you first see me, I’m a freak show attraction being controlled by Barnaby, who’s played by Daniel Mays, and I’m living in absolute squalor. Igor has been mistreated; he lives in abject conditions and doesn’t even have a name. But he has a brilliant mind. He’s saved by Victor, who shows him great kindness and recognizes Igor’s intelligence and talent. After he breaks my spine, I begin helping Victor with his experiments.

WGTC: What was it like filming in Scotland, and what did that bring to the film?

Daniel Radcliffe: Well, we filmed the main castle sequence, the climax, in January, when it was freezing cold, and they had all of these rain machines pouring down on James and I for two weeks.

There was this little room, a hot room, two-by-three, where we could run for cover and get warm, which we did every time there was a break. The conditions made the scenes seem real to us, and Paul was very good at letting James and I find the characters and play around. It’s a beautiful looking film, classic, gothic, but also very dark at times, and I think that, tonally and visually, it’s very faithful to the original film.


The entire interview can be read here, in the original articleVictor Frankenstein comes out in less than 2 weeks, on November 25.

8. Dan Radcliffe in “Now You See Me 2″ Trailer

There were many blockbuster movie trailers that were released this week, including the premiere trailer for Now You See Me 2. Daniel Radcliffe becomes the man in charge of the original cast of the Housemen heist group (except Isla Fisher, who isn’t returning for the sequel).

Dan makes his debut appearance in the very end of the trailer…where he classically screws up a simple card trick. Obviously, this new character Dan plays has never been to Hogwarts. He also has a long way to go before he has the skill level to be considered a Horsemen, and the look on the other Horsemen’s faces prove their disappointment, let alone wielding the power of manipulation over them. The trailer can be seen below:

Movieclips Trailers describes the movie on their YouTube Channel, saying:


THE FOUR HORSEMEN [Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan] return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than WALTER MABRY [Daniel Radcliffe], a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.


Also starring big-named actors such as Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Mark Ruffalo. The movie will hit theaters June 10.

9. Fairytale of New York

BrooklynIf I ruled the world, Brooklyn would be the teen movie of the season. It has the vicissitudes of young romance, a love triangle, a heroine who blossoms from being pleasant-looking to full-on Titanic-era Kate Winslet, right down to the hair blowing and glowing in the ocean sunrise. It’s probably too quiet for wide appeal, though, and the which-guy-will-she-pick is definitely secondary to to the story of a young woman making her way in a new world both actual and otherwise. But you should go–the cinematography is as gorgeous as the music, and the strong central performance of Saoirse Ronan as Eilis is matched by great supporting performances, especially by Jane Brennan as Eilis’s mother (and Don Draper’s second wife has finally found the job she was born to do). While other fans of Colm Toibin’s novel might not be happy with the less ambiguous ending of this film adaptation, I was just so darned happy for everyone I didn’t mind it a bit.

10. Harry Potter Graphic Art by MinaLima Exhibition in London

MinaLima, the graphic artists behind the splendor of the magical Harry Potter films is opening an exhibit in London. The Graphic Art of the Harry Potter Films exhibition will be open from Monday, November 30, to Saturday, December 19, at The Coningsby Gallery, Fitzrovia. Admission to the exhibition is free.

In the exhibition, fans will be able to get a close up look at the visual designs that brought the Harry Potter world to life on screen. Fans will be able to see details of the artworks as originally created for the films, as well as process of how these designs came to be and changes that occurred along the way. The artworks will be displayed chronologically.

As MinaLima designed the Daily Prophet, the Marauder’s Map, and many other graphic props, WB’s Leavesden Studio Tour will be loaning the exhibition original and authentic film props from Harry Potter Studio Tour. All artwork displayed was designed at Leavesden Film Studios between 2002 and 2010.

After the films finished, MinaLima continued their work with the Harry Potter franchise, designing the streets and stores of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The press release talks of MinaLima’s work, saying:


As the designers of the Marauder’s Map, The Daily Prophet and every other graphic prop in the film series, Miraphora and Eduardo have an exceptional and passionate understanding of the Harry Potter films.

With the designs being an integral part of the storytelling, MinaLima’s attention to detail is paramount in their work. Much historical research and experimentation with techniques is employed, from finding the perfect ageing effects to scanning old typefaces and peculiar surfaces to enrich their visual reference library.


Prints of artwork and other memorabilia will be available for purchase at the exhibition. The press release for the exhibition states:


This exhibition showcases graphic designs from Warner Bros. Pictures’ Harry Potter films by Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, reproduced as limited edition art prints which will be for sale.”

“All printed in England, the prints use pigment inks on 300gsm Hahnemuhle fine art paper. Each print is edition numbered and embossed, and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Some editions are embellished with hand finished metallic foiling. Artworks can be purchased either framed or unframed at the exhibition, and can be shipped worldwide. Also for sale at the exhibition will be Hogwarts prop replica notebooks and postcard sets from MinaLima’s collection.

11. New Trailer for Rupert Grint’s “Moonwalkers”


A new trailer has been released for Rupert Grint’s new movie, Moonwalkers. This trailer is different than the Japanese trailer, showing new scenes in addition to being in English. The film has been screened at film festivals in France, Japan, South Korea and the USA. According to IMDB, the will be hitting the theaters in January 2016 for France and the USA, as well as this Saturday, November 14th, in Japan.

Indiewire reported on the film, saying:


Hollywood really likes making movies about and or related to Stanley Kubrick. There’s “Color Me Kubrick” with John Malkovich, it feels like every year there’s some Kubrick-related script on the Black List, and this year we have “Moonwalkers” which is about that conspiracy theory that Apollo 11 never actually happened and in reality, Stanley Kubrick, secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the U.S. administration.

Set in swinging sixties London, it focuses on a stubborn CIA agent (Ron Perlman a.k.a. “Hellboy“) who can’t find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with the lousy manager of a seedy rock band (Rupert Grint) to develop the biggest con of all time: staging the moon landing. The film made its world premiere earlier this year at the 2015 SXSW where is was described as a “riotous, high-tempo action-comedy.”


The two leading men, Rupert Grint and Ron Perlman (who will also be starring in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), can be seen in the trailer below.

12. Daniel Radcliffe Promotes “Victor Frankenstein”

Daniel Radcliffe has been making the rounds on talk shows, promoting his new movie, Victor Frankenstein, which hits theaters November 25th.

Right before going to a premier for the movie, Dan Radcliffe stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. After forcing Jimmy to dance the Gangnam Style, they engaged in a card game of War…with a watery twist. Half way through getting soaked, Dan remembered that he was going to a premiere and didn’t bring a dry change in underwear. Check the videos out on The Tonight Show web page, and below:


Dan also retold the story of when he met GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump, as a young kid visiting NYC for the first time. He compared the presidential candidate to London’s mayor–as a man who says things that would normally end a politicians career, gets away with it, and somehow gets elected. This clip can be seen below:
While in New York promoting Victor Frankenstein, he also made an appearance on “Kelly and Michael.” He also talks about his other film projects in his career, including his new hair cut for Imperium and getting his star on the Hollywood walk of fame. Daniel also talked about not being old enough to play an older Harry in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. He said that he is happy to see the part Harry coming back in an eighth story, he is also happy to see what it would be like to have someone else in the role.


Sitting down with SlashFilm.com on the set of Victor Frankenstein, Daniel talks about working in unconventional roles, and goes into detail about his role as Igor. He talks of playing the part physically, including wearing a prosthetic hump and performing stunts, such as stage fighting, without hurting the other person. Dan also discusses what attracted him to the role in the first place


“James McAvoy said there’s a physicality to this role. Could you describe that for us?

Yeah, in my experience in doing various physical scenes with people, half of your energy that day is just spent in getting the other actor to engage physically with you. Most actors don’t do it, don’t want to hurt you, but James and I have enough confidence in each other that we’re not going to hurt each other. It’s amazing working with James on that level; he gives 100% every time. He just throws me around.

I’d like to think I’ve been the most willing victim he’s ever had. Pretty much our first day actually was him repeatedly slamming me against a pillar; so yeah, that set the tone. I’ve enjoyed all aspects of working with him, but I think the physical side is what sets this apart.

Does that physical side take a toll on things, even on elements such as your costume?

Not so much on those things, but on the first day, that slamming against a post, I had a prosthetic on — not of the full hump, but of the hump when it’s been drained, so it’s actually messed up and not nice looking. So I had that on for three hours, then I put a costume on over it, so it started getting sweaty and covered in material, and then I’m landing on it every time when I go back, I’m hitting the prosthetic time after time after time. And then, at the end of the day, after doing that for seven hours, they were like, “OK, close up on the hump,” and actually, it held up remarkably well. James has got the brilliant ability where he really looks like he’s slamming you against the wall, while actually taking most of the impact himself. So it held up better than we thought.

But was that an attraction to this?

There’s always an attraction to it, in the same way there was about playing Ginsberg [in Kill Your Darlings], about any kind of transformation – particularly a physical one as well – I really enjoy that. I enjoy working with hair and makeup a lot, I enjoy watching people being good at their jobs, and so hair and makeup and prosthetics and all that lot, I’ve always loved being involved in that, but this is definitely the most heavily made up look. I’m not sure if it’s a deliberate thing, but I think most actors enjoy looking in a mirror and not seeing themselves.


Dan talked in detail about his character, Igor, and how his adaption of the role is different than any other of the Hollywood character (Igor has become a staple to Frankenstein movies, though the character was never present in the novel by Mary Shelley.)


“What differentiates this new iteration of Frankenstein?

One of the big differences in this film is when the monster is created, and that puts a very different perspective on everything. The monster isn’t created until the end of… we have several attempts throughout the movie, but the main monster isn’t created until nearer the end of the movie, whereas traditionally it’s something that happens earlier. So it’s less about what happens to the world after the monster is created, and the monster in general, it’s more about the relationship between Frankenstein and Igor preceding it, which of course isn’t a relationship that is in the book. It’s something that has been entered into a global consciousness by loads and loads of movies.

Does Igor have the same drive to play God that Frankenstein does?

Not at all, he wants to… the battle for Igor is, once Victor has rescued him, and he develops this insane loyalty to him, then Victor starts going off the deep end ego-wise. It starts off being very well intentioned, ‘I want to create life, and do something incredible to change the world’, and as his ego takes over, it just becomes, ‘how far can I push this? What crazy, insane thing can I do, just because I can?’, and I think Igor – the chance to change the world for the better is something he never thought he would get, so entering into that, he’s incredibly excited, he wants to be part of that, but then the battle for him in the film is trying to work up the courage to actually stand up to Victor and to tell him to stop.

Are you interested in any other portrayals of Igor from the past?

Other than the ones I’ve already seen, and grew up loving, like Marty Feldman [in Young Frankenstein] is one I get referenced a lot, I think this treads a really wonderful line between Frankenstein and Young Frankenstein. There is humor in this film, it’s not a comedy by any stretch, but there is humor in it. I’ve played a few parts where there have been other people who have played them — when I did Equus, there was a film of that — I’m always worried about being influenced too much, especially this where it is such a fresh take on Igor. I’m a terrible mimic, if I see something to hang on to, I’ll probably do that, so it’s just trying to create it myself, and trying not to do bits from Marty Feldman.

So how old is Igor supposed to be?

I think he’s supposed to be early 20s. He’s younger than Frankenstein. He’s also supposed to have lived his life entirely in the circus, so he is — he’s not naive, but he’s terrified of the world around him.

14. New Scene of Evanna Lynch’s New Film on ET




Entertainment Tonight got a hold of a video clip from Evanna Lynch’s new film, Addiction: A 60’s Love Story. The independent film was released in theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on October 23rd, and moved to video on demand, available for purchase, this week.

ET was the first to release a trailer for the new movie earlier this summer. At the time of our first report, the movie had a different title, Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale, and raising funds on its Indiegogo page “The Dynamite Project.” By the time the first trailer was put out, the title had changed to Dynamite: A 60’s Love Story. The most recent trailer from August released the final title of the film, Addiction: A 60’s Love Story. The new title is very fitting as the film includes drug and alcohol abuse, as well as heavy sexual content. The most recent trailer from ET can be seen below:


The new scene released from ET expands on a snippet seen in the trailer above, and solely features Evanna Lynch and Ian Harding.


Addiction: A 60’s Love Story is now available to buy and view on Video on Demand.

24. Logo for ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Released

Pottermore have just revealed the official designs for the Fantastic Beasts logo, along with 10 international versions and the promise of ‘more local language title treatments’ to come in the next few weeks.


They have also released ‘Secrets of the Fantastic Beasts Logo’, an exclusive interview revealing more about the design:

‘ The designers remain tight-lipped on potential spoilers, but can reveal that the ’S’ was inspired by a creature that does appear in the film.

‘The logo is a blend of beasts, it’s not just one takeaway. When we arrived on idea for the ’S’ it excited us. So we thought there must be a way to accent these other letters with claws or ribs — hints to other beasts, while this one is the logo’s centrepiece.’

And as you may have heard, Fantastic Beasts is set in the Roaring Twenties – a fertile playground for any creative team. So with the backdrop of the Jazz Age within grasp, was it tempting to go for a full-on period piece with the artwork?

‘If you think of New York in the 1920s you have Deco architecture, the subway systems and this kind of a burgeoning metropolis. The Roaring Twenties has a visual identity that you can borrow from, and what would that world look like through the lens of the J.K. Rowling’s mind? You want the logo to feel iconic and timeless. So while Deco and the 1920s setting are things to think about, we don’t know exactly where the story is going to take us.’
