All You Need is Kill

All You Need Is Kill: Early Sunday morning, London’s Trafalgar Square was transformed into a movie set for Doug Liman’s sci-fi action thriller All You Need Is Kill. Tom Cruise arrived by helicopter in full-dress military uniform, hopped out, and walked down the street. A number of extras, adorned in ponchos over camouflage gear, were also on hand. The movie is due for release on March 7, 2014. [Daily Mail]

Larry Hagman: Known primarily as the star of TV sitcom I Dream of Jeannie in the 1960s and as ruthless oilman J.R. Ewing in 1980s drama Dallas as well as the new Dallas on TNT, Larry Hagman passed away this past Friday due to complications from cancer. Before his TV fame, Hagman established himself with small, key roles in films such as the nuclear thriller Fail-Safe (1964); with just a few minutes of screen time, he created a dead serious, yet entirely humane translator for the U.S. president (Henry Fonda). In later years, he enlivened movies such as Nixon and Primary Colors. [CBS News]

Fail Safe

Susan Boyle: The British woman who shot to stardom after singing one song will now see her life adapted into a movie. Susan Boyle shocked everyone with her beautiful, stunning rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” (from Les Miserables) on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, eventually becoming a best-selling recording artist and inspiring a musical based on her life, also called I Dreamed a Dream. Fox Searchlight plans to combine the musical with the singer’s rags-to-riches life story to make a musical biopic. [Deadline]

Zero Dark Thirty TV Spot: Already receiving praise from critics in advance of its December 19 limited opening, Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty has debuted its first TV spot. The movie dramatizes the search for Osama bin Laden -- and the mission that killed him. [Daily Blam]
