Harvey Weinstein discusses Grace of Monaco, Snowpiercer and more

28 January 2015 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In his now yearly chat with the good folks over at Deadline, producer/mogul Harvey Weinstein sat down with the website to discuss his success with The Imitation Game, the problems with Grace of Monaco and his reputation of recutting some of his films, including Monaco and Snowpiercer.

On Grace of Monaco:

“…The script we signed on for was like ‘The King’s Speech,’ with the big moment where Princess Grace steps up. That is what attracted Nicole….I’d seen rushes that were great… The director is French, and he turned it more into a Hitchcock movie like a paean to ‘Vertigo,’ which ironically Grace wasn’t in. The writer, Arash Amel, called me and said, what happened to my script. It’s like welcome to Hollywood…”

“The director refused and criticized me profusely,” he continued. “That moniker of Harvey Scissorhands has always followed me and simply put, »

Harvey Weinstein on Best Pictures, 'Snowpiercer' and Theatrical vs. VOD and His "Harvey Scissorhands" Nickname

26 January 2015 9:14 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Harvey Weinstein is one of the most powerful, outspoken, and controversial men in Hollywood. The studio executive who launched Miramax and The Weinstein Company is a passionate film lover, a master promoter, a ruthless Oscar campaigner, and just about everything else you need to be in order to make it to the top in the business. Even if you find what he does unscrupulous or the content he produces not very good, it is hard not to admire the man for how successful he has made himself, no matter how frustrating it might be. Weinstein recently had a chat with Deadline, covering a wide variety of topics from the Netflix series "Marco Polo" to the troubles with the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of Finding Neverland to Oscar campaigning to his reputation of recutting films, giving him the nickname "Harvey Scissorhands." I had no idea the Weinsteins were behind "Marco Polo »

Harvey Weinstein Explains What Happened With 'Grace Of Monaco,' Says He Was Right About 'Snowpiercer'

26 January 2015 7:37 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the most buzzed about and then quickly forgotten movies of 2014 was "Grace Of Monaco." On paper, it had all the trappings of a potentially strong film, with Nicole Kidman taking the lead role in a drama about Grace Kelly, with "La Vie En Rose" director Olivier Dahan at the helm. But things started to go sour as the film was hitting the finish line. In the fall of 2013, Dahan spoke openly to the French press about his battles with producer Harvey Weinstein who he claimed wanted a more "sanitized" and "Hollywood" friendly film. The Weinstein Company considered not even releasing the movie at all, but relented, and "Grace Of Monaco" headed to Cannes, where it opened the festival, only to be absolutely savaged by critics. So what happened? Will we see it? Well, Weinstein has some answers.  "...you’ll probably see it, either in a small theatrical release or on TV afterwards, »

Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window Screens This Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

25 January 2015 7:31 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“A murderer would never parade his crime in front of an open window”.

Rear Window Screens at The Hi-Pointe Theater in St. Louis Saturday morning January 31st at 10:30am

As with so many of Alfred’s Hitchcock’s films, Rear Window (1954) is a wonderful example of how to take an almost absurdly simple idea and spin out the maximum tension, character, humor and drama from it. It should be boring (a movie set in one room with a guy who can’t move) and ludicrous (a killer who murders his wife and chops her up in front of his neighbors) but it’s quite the opposite – riveting and eerily plausible. If ever there was a film about voyeurism and its relationship to cinema, this is it; Hitchcock tells engrossing little silent movies of the tenants (the newlyweds, the sculptress, Miss Torso, the dog-owners, the killer, the songwriter, Miss Lonelyhearts »

9 Sundance 2015 Films We Are Dying to See

22 January 2015 9:12 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The 2015 Sundance Film Festival kicks off Thursday and with it come some of the most groundbreaking, experimental, and challenging independent films from Hollywood and around the world.

From films about infamous psychological experiments to degenerate gamblers, and the post-apocalyptic worlds to ill-fated emotional journeys, these are the nine films from this year's Sundance Film Fest that we can't wait to watch.

1. The Stanford Prison Experiment

Sundance Film Festival

Starring: Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Kyle Patrick, Tye Sheridan. (Dir. Kyle Patrick Alvarez)

What It's About: The Stanford Prison Experiment tells the real life story of an infamous psychological study examining the effects of imprisonment. Two dozen student volunteers are randomly assigned to be guards or prisoners in this mock jail and, as the experiment unfolds, the students begin to disturbingly fall into their roles.

Why We Want To See It: The real experiment was a frightening yet fascinating examination of psychological conditioning and the man who ran the »

10 Hottest Sundance Sales Titles: J. Lo, Robert Redford, Keanu Reeves, David Foster Wallace

20 January 2015 2:54 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

CAA is “Sleeping With Other People,” UTA is taking “The D Train,” Alicia Van Couvering is “Digging for Fire” and WME will award “The Bronze”...

Buyers will be out in full force this week in Park City but with so many options to choose from, it helps to have a cheat sheet to prioritize the must-see acquisition titles at Sundance. After talking to buyers and sellers alike, here are the 10 most promising titles with the loudest buzz heading into this year’s festival.

The Bronze (WME)

What’s the Deal?: The highlight of Sundance’s opening night lineup is this raunchy comedy from director Bryan Buckley featuring co-writer Melissa Rauch in what could prove to be a star-making performance. The “Big Bang Theory” actress plays a washed-up Olympic gymnast whose local celebrity is threatened by the arrival of a promising young gymnast seeking a mentor. Sundance describes the foul-mouthed protagonist as “a lovably loathsome character who makes Tonya Harding look like Grace Kelly,” so perhaps this will be the next “Bad Words?”

First Screening: Thursday, Jan. 22, 9:30 p.m. – Eccles

Digging for Fire (Alicia Van Couvering)

What’s the Deal?: Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt play East L.A. parents on the verge of a nervous breakdown as they juggle marital and parenting duties. Things get weird when she enjoys a night on the town with her girls and he takes the opportunity to invite his buddies over for smoking, drinking and carousing. Joe Swanberg’s latest may be his most commercial film yet, and it certainly features his most high-profile cast. Between Anna Kendrick, Orlando Bloom, Brie Larson, Sam Rockwell, Chris Messina, Jenny Slate, Melanie Lynskey, Timothy Simons, Ron Livington, comedian Mike Birbiglia and veterans Sam Elliott and Judith Light, there’s someone for everyone.

First Screening: Monday, Jan. 26, 9:45 p.m. – Eccles »

8 January 2015 6:41 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Rod Taylor dead at 84: Actor best known for 'The Time Machine' and 'The Birds' Rod Taylor, best remembered for the early 1960s movies The Time Machine and The Birds, and for his supporting role as Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino's international hit Inglourious Basterds, has died. Taylor suffered a heart attack at his Los Angeles home earlier this morning (January 8, 2015). Born on January 11, 1930, in Sydney, he would have turned 85 on Sunday. Based on H.G. Wells' classic 1895 sci-fi novel, The Time Machine stars Rod Taylor as a H. George Wells, an inventor who comes up with an intricate chair that allows him to travel across time.

The Definitive Best Picture Losers

1 January 2015 12:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s December. And you know what that means? It means for every popcorn blockbuster, we get about three Oscar bait movies that are made solely to appease that body of somewhat stodgy Academy voters. Don’t get me wrong – a good portion of the Best Picture winners in history are still some of the greatest films ever made – “The Godfather” (Parts I and II), “Schindler’s List,” etc. But what about those historically good movies that got the nomination, but didn’t take home the prize? What about those popular movies that carried fan support, but lost out to a smaller, most of the time better, film? Well, here they are. This list focuses on those films that may or may not have been produced as Oscar bait, but earned the recognition of “Best Picture nominee,” only to walk away without the big prize. As usual, not in order of worst to best. »

14 Worst Movies of 2014

1 January 2015 8:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most Hollywood studios have gotten smart about their film budgets, lowering them quite a bit over the past year. Which means we saw fewer box office bombs in 2014. Almost all of the big releases made at least a little bit of their money back, except maybe Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return. It only earned $18.6 million worldwide against it's $70 million budget. Winter's Tale and Vampire Academy were also big money losers over the past twelve months, but seeming disasters like Transcendence and I, Frankenstein actually managed to recoup their costs overseas. That doesn't mean these were good movies by any means. And some of the biggest blockbusters of the year shouldn't be considered masterpieces of cinema by any stretch of the imagination. In 2014, we couldn't really judge a movie by its earnings. But we could judge them by their critical and fan responses. Which is where Rotten Tomatoes comes in handy. »
