Keith Moon Biopic A 'GO'

Considering Hollywood’s near-total reliance on familiar properties (comic books, TV shows, movies that have already been made twice before coughhulkcough, etc.), it’s kind of shocking that a Keith Moon biopic has yet to be made.

Consider that problem solved. Hollywood Reporter, uh, reports that the film, long in the works, has received funding and is now in development. Not only that, but Moon’s The Who bandmate Roger Daltrey has been collaborating with producers on the project. He says, “The Keith Moon project is one close to my heart so I am excited to reinvigorate it…

So get pumped up on amphetamines and brandy for this one, although it might still never see the light of day and if it does it will likely be pretty bad, but…still?

Metallica Release Live "Master Of Puppets" Single From New Film

Metal legends Metallica have released a live cut of the classic “Master Of Puppets” taken from their upcoming 3D film, Through The Never.

Surfacing online just two weeks after the trailer premiere for Through The Never, the performance of “Master Of Puppets” offers fans their first true taste of Metallica’s first theatrical effort. The film combines concert footage, some of which is shown in the clip, with a plot about young boy trying to make it to the venue in the midst of a massive riot. We knew the performance would be larger-than-life, but we had no idea just how epic things would get until this performance rolled through HQ this afternoon. You can stream the clip on Rolling Stone.

Through The Never opens in IMAX 3D at the end of September, then expands to regular screens nationwide in early October. We’ll be in attendance opening night. Will you?

First Trailer for TLC Biopic Released

Yesterday, the surviving members of TLC held a press conference in New York City to announce plans to release new material in conjunction with a new biopic later this year. Music was previewed for the press, but nothing was released to the public (yet). The movie, however, is another story.

Shortly after the morning press conference let out, VH1 released the first trailer for CrazySexyCool, which tells the story of TLC’s meteoric rise to fame and the tragedy that would eventually follow. You can view the preview below.

The actors cast for CrazySexyCool, including rapper Lil Mama as the fallen Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez, look like the spitting image of the popular trio. Do you agree? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the new trailer. (more…)

Metallica's 3D Movie Is Going To Be Larger Than Life (Literally)

Legendary metal act Metallica have revealed information regarding the release of their upcoming 3D film.

Scheduled for an October 4 release this year, Metallica Through the Never is now headed for an IMAX release a week early. A post on the band’s official website reads, “Starting September 27, 2013 our movie will be shown exclusively on EVERY single screen in EVERY single IMAX theatre in North America for a full week. That’s over 300 theatres that we’ll be unleashing Through The Never to… an IMAX first! There really is no better way than this to experience film and promises to amount to an unprecedented and very unique visit to the movies.”

Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans, and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through the Never is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.

A trailer should be available soon. Comment and let us know if this is one feature you plan to see this Fall.

One Direction Unveil 3D Film Title

We have been talking about the reign of One Direction a lot in recent weeks, and to be honest it seems there may be no end in sight. Not only are the boys currently working on their third album in two years, but they also have a new 3D film heading to theater that is sure to take fandom to an all new level.

This morning, the gents from One Direction played a Twitter reveal game with fans to have them unlock the title to the group’s upcoming film. After a few quick hours (and a handful of trending topics), it was revealed that the flick we know as 1D3D will now be called This Is Us. It’s a fitting title, I suppose, but definitely not one that pops. You can view the trailer for This Is Us below. (more…)
