Latest ‘Paddington’ Trailer Features The Voice Of New Lead, Ben Whishaw

Paddington has been one of the most hyped family films of the year, but several months ago the filmmakers behind The Weinstein Company’s latest human/CGI hybrid hit a road bump: They lost their star. Colin Firth had been attached to the film for several months, but shortly after the first trailer debuted he and the production team had an uncoupling that led the studio to seek a new voice for their furry star. They eventually settled on Ben Whishaw, and today we get to see hear his voice in action.

The third trailer for Paddington found its way online this …

MOVIE REVIEW: You Have Never Seen Anything Quite Like ‘LFO’

Film: LFO
Starring: Patrik Karlson
Directed By: Antonio Tublen

Mind control becomes a lot more complicated than one amateur inventor expects in the new film LFO.

It’s been awhile since a foreign film swept me off my feet in its opening moments, but over the weekend that exact experience returned to my life in the form of Antonio Tublen’s LFO. It’s a tale of a man who stumbles upon a way to control people using frequencies akin to those that impact people with tinnitus. His efforts are somewhat noble at first, but things quickly take a turn for …

Benedict Cumberbatch In Final Negotiations To Play Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’

The good people over at Deadline dropped the biggest news bomb of the day and possibly of the week. It is now reported that Benedict Cumberbatch of Star Trek Into Darkness and Sherlock is in final negotiations to play Doctor Strange for Marvel Entertainment’s upcoming 2016 film adaptation. This news comes after Joaquin Phoenix’s involvement never came to fruition. Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, and even Ethan Hawke were also rumored to be attached at one point.

The original comic line behind Doctor Strange told the story of a surgeon, Stephen Strange, who after an accident renders one of his hands …

UTG INTERVIEW: Jeff Bridges Discusses His Career(s) and New Live Album

Jeff Bridges really needs no introduction, but for the sake of the uninitiated, he’s an Oscar-winning actor with numerous other talents on his curriculum vitae, including, but not limited to, photography, painting and songwriting. Many likely remember his turn as Otis “Bad” Blake in 2009′s multi-award winning Crazy Heart, but Bridges’ musical journey began long before that film graced the silver screen.

We were recently fortunate enough to have the opportunity to speak with Bridges about his careers in both film and music and the challenges of balancing the two, but we wanted to focus on his newest album, …

‘Late Phases’ Trailer Adds A Fresh Twist To The Hunt For Werewolves

Werewolves are one of my favorite movie monsters, but aside from Hemlock Grove there have been surprisingly few stories featuring transforming humans as of late that have been worth anyone’s time. Late Phases hopes to change that trend, and the first trailer shows a lot of promise.

Stake Land star Nick Damici leads Late Phases as a blind war veteran who has just moved to a new home in a rural area that has a surprisingly high rate of animal-related attacks. Though our star cannot prove it, he soon comes to believe that there is more going on in his …

‘Ouija’ Scores $20 Million Weekend

It’s no secret that there’s a definite hit and miss game to releasing micro-horror films. When a production tanks, more often than not, flukes are forgotten and never remembered again, but sometimes, the returns can be massive. This was exactly the case with Blumhouse Productions’ Ouija, which topped this weekend’s box office charts with a shocking $20 million pull.

Perhaps it’s to blame on the Halloween season, but despite having an 86% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Keanu Reeves’ John Wick only managed to open with about $14 million in sales. This weekend also saw an expanded release of …

‘Batman v Superman’ Teaser To Run In Front Of ‘The Hobbit’

They might not admit it to the public, but it’s pretty clear to anyone paying attention that DC Comics is desperately trying to catch up to, if not top, Marvel‘s cinematic universe. Every time one company announces something big, the other one follows, and every time it’s the fans who win.

We have just under two years to wait until Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice hits theaters, but according to a new story on Forbes we might get a glimpse of the superhero epic as soon as December 2014. Writer Mark Hughes claims to have heard from a …
