Michael Fassbender

Aaron Sorkin‘s scripted Steve Jobs biopic was in flux at one point in time. The project was over at Sony, with expectations that David Fincher would be directing and Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio were attached to star. But when everything fell through, Universal quickly scooped it up and snagged Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) to direct the biopic about the Apple founder. It may have taken a while, with casting rumors and such, but now the studio has confirmed the cast, title, and logline, as well as announced the start of principal photography.

Simply titled Steve Jobs, the film will star Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former Macintosh marketing boss Joanna Hoffman, Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley, Katherine Waterston as Jobs’ ex-girlfriend Chrisann Brennan, and Michael Stuhlbarg as one of the Mac’s original developers Andy Hertzfeld. Perla Haney-Jardine, Ripley Sobo, Makenzie Moss, Sarah Snook, and Adam Shapiro are also part of the cast.

Movie Review: Trance

Trance Film PosterTrance
Director: Danny Boyle
Screenwriter: Joe Ahearne, John Hodge
Cast: James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, Vincent Cassel, Danny Sapani
Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rated R | 101 Minutes
Release Date: April 12, 2013

Directed by Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle, with a script by Trainspotting and Shallow Grave screenwriter John Hodge, Trance is partially adapted from the 2001 made-for-television feature of the same name by writer/director Joe Ahearne.

The psychosexual thriller stars James McAvoy (Atonement) as Simon, a prominent art auctioneer struggling with a serious brain trauma after teaming with underworld crime boss Franck (Vincent Cassel) to steal Francisco Goya’s Witches in the Air from an auction house.

Simon tries (unsuccessfully) to double-cross Franck, who returns the favor by knocking Simon unconscious with a devastating blow to the skull, wiping out any memory concerning the whereabouts of the prized painting. Simon has no recollection of where he hid the stolen masterpiece, forcing Franck to enlist talented hypnotherapist Elizabeth (Rosario Dawson) to try and pinpoint its location – but the deeper Elizabeth probes into Simon’s subconscious, the more complex (and misleading) the mystery becomes.

Watch Queen Elizabeth II and James Bond Parachute Into The Olympics Opening Ceremony

Queen Elizabeth II made a spectacular entrance into Olympic Stadium at the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics today when she parachuted out of a helicopter with James Bond.

No, not really, but yeah, kinda. You should watch for yourself in the video here below.

The Queen of England did star along with actor Daniel Craig as James Bond in a 3-minute film directed by Danny Boyle, who was the mastermind behind the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 Olympics. In the film, which is reportedly features the 86-year-old royal’s first on-screen performance, James Bond meets Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace where the two boarded a helicopter headed for Olympic Stadium. On their journey, they passed by the city’s popular landmarks, until finally hovering over the stadium, where they jump out wearing parachutes sporting the Union Jack.

‘BioShock’ Loses Another Director As Juan Carlos Fresnadillo Departs The Production
space
BAADASSSSS!   |

BioShock Banner

For several years now a movie based on the popular Bioshock video game franchise has been in development. At one point Gore Verbinski (the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies) was in the director’s chair, but couldn’t come to an agreement with the studio about the film’s projected budget and his demand for an R-rating. Verbinski assumed producing duties instead and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) took over as director. But now it looks like the Spanish filmmaker is no longer involved with the long-gestating Bioshock movie either.

“To be honest, by now, I’m completely out of that, and developing other stuff,” Fresnadillo said in an interview with the Playlist while promoting his latest film Intruders. “Right now it’s on hold. The studio and the videogame company, they have to reach some kind of agreement about the budget and the rating.” Despite the popularity of the Bioshock games the franchise has a very limited fanbase outside the gaming community and wouldn’t necessarily justify the sizable nine-figure budget required to bring the game to life on the big screen. Verbinski looks to be staying on as producer.
