Teresa Palmer Still Reeling From Awful Movie Experience On Jumper


Teresa Palmer Hayden Christensen Doug Liman

The Warm Bodies star was just 19 when she landed the role in the time-travelling drama, and she still can't believe what was asked of her as she started shooting with director Doug Liman and stars Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson.

"There has been things on this movie that were sexist and not professional at all," the Australian actress told Grazia magazine. "I cannot believe, today, that as a 19 year old girl, I was put in such an awful situation.

"It's the biggest relief that I got replaced on this movie. For the two or three months I was attached to it, I could not sleep, I thought I was losing my mind... and I decided to quit and go back to Adelaide."

Michael Caine Sylvester Stallone Doug Liman

‘Escape to Victory’ – or simply ‘Victory’ in U.S – captured two emotive subjects for Americans: war and sport. And now a remake is set to do the same, as Americans take soccer in to their hearts like never before with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The original, starring Michael Caine and Sylvester Stallone, saw the Nazi's arrogance manifest in a Germany v P.O.W football match, with the controlling force assuming it had the game won – an opportunity to embarrass those they had living under horrible conditions.

'Edge Of Tomorrow' May Be Recycled, But It's Not Rubbish


Tom Cruise Emily Blunt Brendan Gleeson Doug Liman

Fancy an action blockbuster this weekend? Doug Liman's hotly anticipated new sci-fi action epic Edge of Tomorrow finally sees its US release today and is set for a monster opening. Well, the critical winds are certainly blowing in the right direction: the film is unabashedly action-packed but complements its meat-headedness with moral dilemmas and a disturbing view of the future of humanity.

Tom Cruise takes the lead in this military sci-fi movie, playing a man reliving his death in battle against an alien force over and over again. Cruise plays Lt. Col. Bill Cage and co-star Emily Blunt is Special Forces soldier Rita Vrataski in this exciting new alien combat thriller.

Adapted by Screenwriter Dante Harper, Edge of Tomorrow is based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka's Japanese light novel All You Need Is Kill which combines a mind-boggling time loop scenario - think Groundhog Day crossed with Source Code - with heart-racing action scenes, evoking Cruise's own Oblivion and Matt Damon's Elysium.

Emily Blunt did the plank in the middle of a sushi restaurant while exploring her opening sequence for the 'Edge of Tomorrow'.

The 31-year-old actress, who stars as Rita Vratask in the sci-fi film, revealed the cast and crew were out at lunch working out how to introduce characters when her co-star Christopher 'Kick' Gurry insisted she show director Doug Liman one of her impressive yoga poses which was later incorporated into the film.

Talking to the BBC, she explained: ''We were trying to figure out the best way to introduce the character, so we were all out having sushi, and one of the other characters, one of the members of J-Squad, Kick, just said, 'Em, show Doug [director] that toga move you can do'. I just did in the middle of a sushi restaurant and I remember Doug looking at me like that and going, 'That's it'.''

Doug Liman Doesn't Take 'no' For An Answer


Doug Liman

Director Doug Liman tries to accomplish the impossible.

The 48-year-old filmmaker managed to get permission to have a military helicopter land in London's iconic Trafalgar Square for his latest film 'Edge of Tomorrow' and insists he only managed to pull that off because he was persistent and refused to take 'no' for an answer.

He told The Times 2 supplement: ''It's easy to propose something outrageous in a pre-production meeting like, 'What about landing a military helicopter in Trafalgar Square?

Edge Of Tomorrow Trailer


Major William Cage is a soldier who is thrust into an impossible battle when the world is taking over by an advanced and brutal army of aliens called Mimics. He teams up with feisty Special Forces soldier Rita Vrataski but, unsurprisingly, they and the rest of the military force attacking the intergalactic threat are almost immediately wiped out. However, Cage wakes up and finds himself back to where he started having just been recruited, with the deadly battle still ahead of them. When he later dies again in a different way and subsequently re-awakens, he realises that this day will be on a loop presenting him with a unique opportunity to grow stronger and more able to defeat the global enemy with the help of Vrataski as each day passes by.
