Actress Aubrey Peeples is probably best known for playing Layla Grant on the popular ABC series Nashville, as well as appearing in the pop culture phenomenon Sharknado. However, that could soon change with her upcoming role as the iconic title character in Jem and the Holograms, a live-action adaptation of the cult classic ‘80s animated series. But first, Peeples can be seen acting opposite Academy Award-winner Nicolas Cage (Joe, The Frozen Ground) in the new crime thriller Rage, which opens in theaters on July 11th.
In Rage, Peeples plays Caitlin Maguire, the daughter of reformed criminal Paul Maguire (Cage). When she is kidnapped, Paul rounds up his old crew to seek his own brand of justice. The film was directed by Paco Cabezas (Neon Flesh), and also stars Rachel Nichols (Alex Cross), Peter Stormare (Fargo), and Danny Glover (Supremacy).
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Aubrey Peeples about her work on Rage, as well as Jem and the Holograms, and the Sharknado phenomenon. The talented young actress discussed her new film, “Getting in the Cage” with Nicolas Cage, his process as an actor, making a small role memorable, director Paco Cabezas, Jem and the Holograms, researching the original source material, what elements of the cartoon the film will adapt, singing in the movie, when she wrapped filming, working with director Jon M. Chu, and the legacy of Sharknado.
Caesar and his ape compatriots came howling into theaters this weekend, making Dawn of the Planet of the Apes the biggest movie at the weekend box office by a wide margin.
Guillermo del Toro stays so busy that it's a wonder he has time to talk so much.
The lovably loquacious filmmaker has revealed he's even busier than we thought, as he plans to shoot a mysterious black and white film between Crimson Peak and Pacific Rim 2.
While he was at it, the director also gave some insight on the Pacific Rim animated series, which he said will boast season-long arcs rather than purely episodic adventures. He even talked about his longtime passion project, At the Mountains of Madness, and his audacious notion to release PG-13 and R-rated versions in theaters simultaneously.
Warner Bros. has left the first poster for This Is Where I Leave You online.
Hopefully it's not indicative of the movie itself, because this poster is just a bunch of great comedic actors sitting around doing nothing in painfully Photoshoppped soft lighting.
A new TV spot is by far the most persuasive piece of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles promotion so far.
That's not because it shows clear looks at the title characters in action alongside their master, Splinter, but because this spot suggests Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might actually be fun.
A quartet of motion posters, meanwhile, highlight each of the individual turtles, proving that their broad personalities have survived the Bayification process.
Star Trek 3 is due in theaters at some point in 2016, which is, not coincidentally, the sixtieth anniversary of Gene Roddenberry's groundbreaking original series.
But with J.J. Abrams busy overseeing Star Wars: Episode VII, a new director has to take sit in the captain's chair on this sequel.
After talking to the likes of Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) and Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Paramount, Skydance, and Bad Robot settled on Roberto Orci, a co-writer and producer on Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness.
After being waylaid by tragedy, production on Fast & Furious 7 has crossed the finish line.
The filmmakers announced the end of principal photography on the sequel with an earnest message and a new look behind the scenes.
This is 2014, so there's no actual sex tape in Sex Tape.
It's not like Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel were going to slide a Maxell VHS into their camcorder to record a marathon lovemaking session. This is an age of technological miracles and uncertainties, one in which an actual tape would be hopelessly outdated.
Instead, as one of two new clips and a featurette emphasize, the techno-threat of Sex Tape is, in fact, the Cloud.
Another day, another Batman v. Superman rumor.
Actually, this isn't the first time we've heard rumblings that comic book killing machine Doomsday will be a villain in Dawn of Justice.
The first red band clip from Lucy proves that Scarlett Johannson puts a lot of bullets in a lot of dudes' heads throughout Luc Besson's upcoming scifi actioner.
Before you get to the beautiful woman mowing down anonymous henchmen with unstoppable panache, though, take note that Johansson is the latest actor to join the next movie from Joel and Ethan Coen.
