Minecraft: Story Mode Returns For A Second Season On July 11

If Minecraft: Story Mode‘s first eight-episode run wasn’t quite enough to satiate your appetite for all things blocky, you’re in luck – Telltale has confirmed that a second season is on the way. Starting July 11, the season two opener, Hero in Residence, will be available to download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and mobile devices and will continue to document the heroic acts of protagonist Jesse from the first season.

Spread across the usual five episode structure established with Telltale’s other interactive adventures, all choices made during the course of season one will, according to Telltale, carry over, although it should also serve as a suitable jumping off point for new players, should they wish to skip what’s come before. Whichever camp you fall into, see below for Telltale’s scene-setting description of the upcoming season.

Now that Jesse and the gang have vanquished the Wither Storm,

Hard Road To Oscar: ‘American Sniper’s Jason Hall, On Salvaging Truth From Tragedy

Hard Road To Oscar: ‘American Sniper’s Jason Hall, On Salvaging Truth From Tragedy
Most of the movie biopics that figure prominently in awards season had their share of twists and turns, but none more than American Sniper, the film about Navy Seal Chris Kyle that Clint Eastwood directed for Warner Bros. Jason Hall, the writer since the film’s inception, explains how Sniper overcame more setbacks and tragedy than most films.

Deadline: You were an aspiring actor not that long ago. How did you become the sole writer of American Sniper?

Hall: I tried to be an actor, did TV parts in shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, played the bad guy or the MacGuffin bad guy with the half-baked mustache. I’d read these terrible movie scripts and couldn’t get auditions for them. I thought maybe I could write a terrible script for myself, but they wouldn’t even let me audition when I did that. My first script, I remember

Surviving Desire: The Cinema of David Mackenzie

  • MUBI
Spread

Hold me. Thrill me. Kiss me. Kill me. The films of David Mackenzie envision life as a never-ending whirlwind of experience, a cyclone of emotion constantly spinning out of control. These feelings are heightened and externalized through melodrama, yet they can also simmer under the surface like hidden secrets waiting to explode. While his exhausted characters never fit into one social class – pop stars, artisan chefs and thuggish bruisers all take center stage – each sees the world in a similarly warped way. They are confused by inadequacy, defined by repression, purposefully solitary, and bordering on self-destruction. But most importantly they are also eager to transcend this unhappiness, especially after finding inspiration in another equally tormented individual. One must simply desire the opportunity to grow, to live, to survive.

Mackenzie’s key battleground is the romantic relationship. Incited by knowing eye contact and waged through a sensual collision of skin,

Interview: Director David Mackenzie on Brutal Reality of 'Starred Up'

"You need to experience the dynamite... to know that the dynamite can go off." Just last week we featured Starred Up as our latest Monthly Must See, an intense, brutal but incredible prison movie from English director David Mackenzie starring Jack O'Connell and Ben Mendelsohn. You may not recognize the name at first, but you should certainly recognize his films - David Mackenzie's filmography includes Young Adam, Asylum, Hallam Foe (or Mister Foe in the Us), Spread with Ashton Kutcher, the sci-fi Perfect Sense and the music film Tonight You're Mine, all before he went on to make Starred Up. Last week I sat down for a chat with David on the realism of the film and finding actor Jack O'Connell, who plays inmate Eric Love. As a big fan of Starred Up, I was anxious to get a chance to sit down with Mackenzie and drill him on

The HeyUGuys Interview: David Mackenzie talks Starred Up

With Starred Up, David Mackenzie has crafted an instant classic not just of the prison sub-genre, but one of the best dramas of the year so far. As his eight feature, the movie treads new ground for a talent whose last high-profile movie was the Ewan McGregor-starring Perfect Sense, but showcasing astonishing performances from Jack O’Connell, Ben Mendelsohn and Rupert Friend – and proving he can bring out the beauty in the brutality – it’s also his greatest work so far. HeyUGuys had a chat with him about it.

Were you always interested in making a prison-set film? Or was it Jonathan Asser’s screenplay that drew you in?

It’s a hard one; you choose a project on the basis of a number of reasons. All the things that come across your path are a major reason, you know. I definitely think I was interested in trying to make a movie that was,

Attack The Block Director to Take on Section 6

Attack the Block director Joe Cornish is set to direct a spy movie called Section 6 for Universal Pictures. This will be the writer-driector's second film. The movie will tell the origin story of the formation of Great Britain's secret intelligence agency, Military Intelligence, Section 6, also known as MI6. Earlier this year British actor Jack O'Connell (300: Rise of An Empire) was attached to star in the project. 

Directors David MacKenzie (Spread) and Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) were up for the directing gig as well, but Cornish beat them out. The guy did an awesome job with Attack the Block. I've been looking forward to seeing what he would do next, and I think this will be a great project for him to take on. He recently worked on the Ant-Man script with Edgar Wright.

Sienna Miller Joins the Clint Eastwood Drama 'American Sniper'

Sienna Miller Joins the Clint Eastwood Drama 'American Sniper'
Sienna Miller is in talks to star alongside Bradley Cooper in American Sniper, which is now being directed by Clint Eastwood after Steven Spielberg bowed out in August.

The project is based on the memoir of the same name written by Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, who has the most confirmed kills of any sniper in U.S. military history. Sienna Miller is playing the soldier's wife, who is raising his kids while he is off fighting overseas. Clint Eastwood reportedly spent the past week deciding between Sienna Miller and Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World) for the role. Kate Mara was a contender for the role, but she was forced to drop out after signing on to play Sue Storm in The Fantastic Four.

Jason Dean Hall (Paranoia, Spread) wrote the adapted screenplay, with Bradley Cooper, Andrew Lazar and Peter Morgan producing. Shooting is scheduled to begin next month.

"This is how young offenders turn out..." Film4 has debuted the first official UK trailer for Starred Up, one of my favorite festival films of 2013.

First Poster for Paranoia with Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman & Amber Heard

Hitting the big screen in the States in just over two months, Robert Luketic’s Paranoia boasts a very impressive leading cast in Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, and Gary Oldman.

We saw a promising first trailer for the dramatic thriller arrive last week, giving us our first good look at the summer release. And now Relativity have released the first poster, and whilst the artwork is a little less than inspiring, I’m still looking forward to seeing the film itself.

In this high-stakes thriller, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is an ambitious junior technologist trying to climb the ranks of telecom giant Wyatt Corporation. But after one costly mistake, Adam is blackmailed by ruthless CEO Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) to turn corporate spy by going to work for the firm’s top competitor, which is run by Wyatt’s old mentor, Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford). Adam soon finds himself delivered into prepackaged success,

Warner Bros. Moves on Rasputin for Leonardo DiCaprio

Warner Bros. has acquired a pitch from writer Jason Dean Hall entitled Rasputin, with Leonardo DiCaprio attached to star as the title character.

The story follows the mystical Russian who was embraced by the Imperial Family as a medical adviser for their hemophiliac son Tsarevich Alexei. Rasputin continued to gain considerable influence with the family, so much so that the family's rivals tried to kill Rasputin several times before his eventual death in 1916. There have been movies made about this historical figure before, but writer Jason Dean Hall reportedly unearthed new details about the man, which give him more "psychological depth."

Jennifer Davisson Killoran is producing for Leonardo DiCaprio's company Appian Way, alongside Langley Park's Kevin McCormick and Peter Morgan. No production schedule was given.

Leonardo DiCaprio can currently be seen in The Great Gatsby, and has The Wolf of Wall Street opening this fall. Jason Dean Hall wrote Spread,
