    Johnny Depp is obsessed with A.I. in the new 'Transcendence' Trailer

    The first trailer for Johnny Depp's Transcendence has hit online, and the teaser gives a taste of what makes Depp's character tick.

    In the film, the actor plays Dr. Will Caster, a renowned artificial intelligence researcher obsessed with creating a sentient machine. It will also see anti-technology extremists try to stop his experiments, even as his collaborators question whether the experiments should go on. Depp said in his voiceover:

    For 130,000 years, our capacity for reason has remained unchained. The combined intellect of the neuroscientists, engineers, mathematicians pales in comparison to even the most basic A.I. Once online, a sentient machine will quickly overcome the limits of biology. In a short time, its analytical power will be greater than the collective intelligence of every person born in the history of the world. Some scientists refer to this as the singularity. I call it transcendence.

    The film is executive produced by Christopher Nolan and is the directorial debut of longtime Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister, who worked with on The Dark Knight trilogy and earned an Oscar for Inception.

    Transcendence also stars Rebecca HallMorgan FreemanPaul BettanyKate Mara and Cillian Murphy. The film is being distributed by Warner Bros. and hits theaters April 18, 2014. Watch the teaser after the break.

    Paul Rudd to play Ant-Man in Edgar Wright's adaptation of the Marvel Hero

    Marvel has just confirmed that Rudd will play the role of Ant-Man, though the release shies away from naming the specific incarnation of the character, and definitely does not give out any plot info.

    Here’s the release, from Marvel:

    Marvel’s “Ant-Man” has found its hero in Paul Rudd, who will star in the new film from director Edgar Wright hitting theaters July 31, 2015!

    The casting of Rudd represents the actor that Marvel had long ago identified as its first choice to play Ant-Man, continuing the studio’s desire to cast actors that bring several dimensions to its onscreen heroes. The film’s plot is being kept under wraps.

    “When Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star,” said Marvel’s Kevin Feige. “We knew early on that we had found the right person in Paul. When he not only agreed to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we’d ever met with about doing the work, we knew we’d found the right guy. We couldn’t be more excited for our audiences to see what he’s going to do to bring Ant-Man to life.”

    Rudd brings a diverse background to the role having become one of the industry’s most known actors with a reputation for smart, funny and creative performances. Rudd can currently be seen in “Anchor Man 2: The Legend Continues,” as well as past roles in “Anchorman,” “This Is 40,” “I Love You, Man,” “Role Models,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Our Idiot Brother,” “Knocked Up,” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” among numerous other films, television shows and primetime animation.

    In addition to “Ant-Man,” Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015.

    There’s more than one Ant-Man, and early reports guessed Hank Pym as the specific Ant-Man that will feature in the film. Wright specifically mentioned Pym in the last couple months. But Pym could feature in the film and not be the lead.

    There’s a lot of talk about Scott Lang being the character Rudd will play, based in part on Kevin Feige’s comments that this will be a heist movie. That suggests a story like ‘To Steal Ant-Man’  being one possible jumping-off point. So place your bets now. And as with most of Marvel’s movies, expect some differences between the screen version of the character and many of the comic page portrayals.

    With Ant-Man set to shoot early next year, and Rudd cast, we should get a flood of casting news soon, which will point to other specific story ideas being used for the movie.

    Edgar Wright scripted with Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), and Ant-Manis set for release on July 31, 2015.

    REVIEW: 'Saving Mr. Banks' Mary Poppins: A History

    The new film Saving Mr. Banks has to be one of the best stories as well as one of the best told stories of 2013’s filmography. Centered on P.L. Travers, author of “Mary Poppins,” Saving Mr. Banks is a touching, intriguing, and altogether wonderful film that delves deep into the psychology of Travers and reveals to those in the audience what a drawn out ordeal bringing Mary Poppins to the screen was, but also, more importantly, why.

    Emma Thompson stars as the delightfully bitter, stubborn, and brilliant P.L. Travers, who seems to have an iron based determination to not only deny Walt Disney the rights to her beloved book, but to ensure that all involved be made aware of how ridiculous of an idea it was to bring her all the way out to L.A. While it seems that nothing will change her mind, Walt, not Mr. Disney, has a determination of his own, bound by a promise he made to his daughters, to bring Mary Poppins to life, though after their first meeting it seems all too apparent that no amount of his charm or cheer can soften this woman’s heart. What exactly in this woman’s past brought her to or made her like this?

    REVIEW: 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' Stop Dreaming, Start Living

    Ben Stiller is the star both on screen and off with his new film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, an artistically shot movie that reveals itself with a delicacy comparable to something hand crafted. That being said the movie truly is a visual feast, though surprisingly not one that fills you up as quickly or just as much as it seemed it would. However, that isn’t to say the movie is either poor or not worth seeing, not at all.

    Walter Mitty is a great character for a lot of reasons, one of the primary being that he’s entirely relatable. Having worked sixteen years as a negative assets manager at LIFE Magazine he’s sort of in the doldrums of life. It’s easy to see he’s got a routine, that he most likely has the same breakfast and cup of coffee every morning, and that his work day is no different than anybody else’s. As an escape from this monotony, Walter often daydreams, or “zones out,” many times in mid conversation. Even in one’s grown adult life, is there not still that childish shred of imagination, where in our fantasies we are heroes, saints, and everything we are not? Funnily enough, this little quirk of Walter’s only serves to ironically cut this facet of our lives, and emphasize that in order to live life one needs to merely stop dreaming and start living.

    Emilia Clarke to Play Sarah Connor in 'Terminator' Reboot

    Emilia Clarke has nabbed the iconic role of Sarah Connor in the reboot of The Terminator being made by Paramount, Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions.

    Alan Taylor is directing the movie, which put Clarke in pole position for the role as Taylor directed her in HBO’s Game of Thrones.

    Still, Paramount, Annapurna and Skydance conducted screen tests in November. Brie Larson was another actress vying for the role, whileMargot Robbie’s name also surfaced early on.

    Connor was played by Linda Hamilton in the classic movies directed byJames Cameron.

    The character is the future mother of John Connor, who grows up to be the leader of the human resistance in the war between humanity and cyborgs, and is central in the new movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as a Terminator robot, with Jason Clarke in talks to play John Connor.

    This time, in a time-spanning story that also will have a young Kyle Reese and an adult Connor, the Terminator robot is tasked to protect Sarah Connor from childhood and into young adulthood.

    Clarke, who is just starting to move into features (she will be seen in the upcoming Jude Law film Dom Hemingway), is repped by CAA and Emptage Hallett in the UK.

    Sony Expands Spider-Man Cinematic Universe With ‘Venom’ and ‘Sinister Six’ Movies

    Marvel Studios just announced the Venom movie that has been rumored for years, and aSinister Six film as well. That’s right — unlike some other studio approaches, when it comes to Spider-Man and Sony, the spin-off films are for the bad guys. That’s pretty wild.

    To make these movies a creative “brain trust” has been formed, includingMarc WebbAlex KurtzmanRoberto OrciJeff PinknerEd Solomon, and Drew Goddard. Together they will collaboratively develop these films as a linked set of projects.

    It gets more unusual than just the fact of developing villain movies: the fourth Amazing Spider-Man film now seems to be the Sinister Six film, which Drew Goddard will write and possibly direct. Now we know why Andrew Garfield just said the fourth film is “not anything to do with me,” as the movie will presumably focus on characters such as the Lizard, Rhino, Electro, Green Goblin, Vulture, and Doctor Octopus.

    Alex Kurtzman, meanwhile, will direct Venom, and that means they’ve got an alien symbiote to work in to the story. And that probably explains why he’s no longer part of the writing team for Star Trek 3.

    'Fallout 4' is in fact real, and it is in the works

    A collection of leaked documents confirms that Bethesda is hard at work on Fallout 4.

    Last week, fans of Bethesda's Fallout series had to double up on their blood pressure medication after a hoaxer revealed that a Fallout 4 teaser site, thesurvivor2299.com, was fake. Today, however, the future doesn't seem quite as depressing for Fallout players, because we finally have a tangible piece of evidence for the existence of Fallout 4.

    The folks over at Kotaku have obtained a collection of documents that are linked to a casting call for a project that's code-named Institute. The script in question doesn't contain any direct references to the Fallout series, but it is littered with familiar phrases and mentions several recognizable locales.

    The documents also confirm a suspicion that has been swirling around the internet for over a year. Last August, reports that several Bethesda employees were snooping around Boston led gamers to suspect that the next Fallout title would be set in Massachusetts. The leaked script references a militia group called the Commonwealth Minutemen, and those of you who are familiar with Fallout mythology will remember that the Commonwealth is Massachusetts' post-apocalyptic moniker.

    Obviously, this information shouldn't be confused with an official announcement from Bethesda, but maybe it'll be enough to cheer people up after last week's disappointment.

    ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Trailer released to the world

    Those in the "know" have referred to Edge of Tomorrow, originally called All You Need is Kill, as “Starship Troopers plus Groundhog Day,” because Tom Cruise plays a guy thrown into battle against an alien force who is killed moments after he gets to the fight. But he doesn’t stay dead; instead he wakes up on that fateful morning of battle over and over again, and therefore has to fight and die over and over again.

    That repeated last day turns out to be the chance for this guy to really become a soldier, as the extra lives mean that he can learn to fight and survive, with a little help from another warrior (Emily Blunt).

    Check out the trailer after the break, which comes complete with a little bit of Bill Paxton.

    Bethesda and Zenimax Announce The Elder Scrolls Online Release Date

    Zenimax Online has announced an April 2014 release date for The Elder Scrolls Online.

    Since the game was first announced back in 2012, there has been tangible anticipation for The Elder Scrolls Online. It's not hard to see why. Setting aside the fact that The Elder Scrolls series as a whole enjoys a fairly dedicated fan base, the franchise's most recent entry, Skyrim, was arguably one of the definitive games of the last console generation.

    All of this said, those fans eagerly awaiting the arrival of the series' first online entry will be pleased to find out that its developers at Zenimax Online have finally revealed when the game will hit stores. The Elder Scrolls Online on PC and Mac will release on April 4th, 2014. The console versions will, in turn, be released a few months later in June.

    Alongside this news, the studio has also unveiled a new trailer showing off the game's implementation of larger scale battles. The "War in Cyrodiil" trailer features armies, siege weaponry and, of course, a booming soundtrack and choir to help put across just how epic it all is. Not that it isn't, or anything. So take the next few months to finish up any vital business, because come April we're expecting we'll all be embroiled in the conflict to claim the Ruby Throne.
