Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Ewen Bremner, Said Taghmaoui, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Connie Nielsen and Lucy Davis co-star in the Patty Jenkins-directed film which opens June 2nd.

What do fans of atmospheric post-punk music have in common with ancient barbarians? Not much ... so why are both known as “goths”? Is it a weird coincidence – or is there a deeper connection stretching across the centuries? Dan Adams investigates.

Tom Hardy Signs On To Play “Venom”

Dark Horizons - Fri, 05/19/2017 - 10:33am

Sony Pictures has announced that Academy Award-nominated actor Tom Hardy has signed on for the lead role in “Venom”.

First appearing in the “Spider-Man” comic book series as an alien costume worn by Peter Parker, the creature ultimately left Peter Parker and merged with photographer Eddie Brock to become the antihero known as Venom.

It’s expected this film, announced in March, will not tie to the new Tom Holland-led “Spider-Man” franchise. Scott Rosenberg (“Pain & Gain”) and Jeff Pinkner (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) are penning the script while Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) will direct the movie which is slated to begin production this Fall ahead of a debut on October 5th next year.

New Posters For “The Dark Tower”

Dark Horizons - Fri, 05/19/2017 - 10:29am

Two new character posters have been released for the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower”.

The film’s stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey are front and center on the one sheets, the pair releasing the posters via each other’s Twitter accounts.

Elba plays Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is travelling south-east across a post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower.

Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.

The film opens on August 4th.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Joins “Ducktales” Reboot

Dark Horizons - Fri, 05/19/2017 - 10:28am

Multiple award-winning actor, playwright and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”) has joined the voice cast of the new “DuckTales” series debuting this summer on Disney XD.

The lifelong DuckTales aficionado will provide the voice of fan-favorite character Gizmoduck, aka. Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera. The character is being slightly adjusted here, no longer Scrooge’s bumbling accountant – he’s now a brilliant young intern working for Scrooge McDuck’s personal mad scientist, Gyro Gearloose (whom has yet to be cast).

Miranda will recur alongside the regular cast of David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley.

The series, produced by Disney Television Animation and based on the classic cartoons series, has already been picked up for a second season ahead of its highly-anticipated premiere.

David Ayer To Helm The “Scarface” Remake

Dark Horizons - Fri, 05/19/2017 - 10:27am

“Suicide Squad” and “End of Watch” director David Ayer is set to replace Antoine Fuqua as director on the “Scarface” remake at Universal Pictures.

Ayer penned the script for Fuqua’s breakout film “Training Day,” so the hiring is a welcome one. Fuqua had to depart due to a scheduling conflict with “The Equalizer” sequel.

He beats both “Hell or High Water” filmmaker David Mackenzie and “Patriots Day” helmer Pete Berg who were linked to the project earlier this year.

Joel and Ethan Coen were the most recent scribes to do a polish on the script for this incarnation of the story which focuses on a Latino gangster in contemporary Los Angeles.

Diego Luna has been attached to play the title gangster, with Ayer’s hiring it’s unclear if that will remain the case. Ayer’s fantasy film “Bright” starring Will Smith is slated to hit the service in December.

The new “Scarface” opens August 10th next year.
