Nathan Fillion And Alison Brie Centre Stage For ‘The Seekers Of Perpetual Love’

13 September 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

While staging a live reading of a screenplay for a movie you’re hoping to raise money for is common practice, ‘Black List Live!’ appear to be putting a bit more effort in than most. Having brought us Jared Harris in 1969: A Space Odyssey (a film that suggests Stanley Kubrick faked the Moon landing), they have now unveiled the charming line-up of Castle and Community stars Nathan Fillion and Alison Brie, who will tread the boards for The Seekers Of Perpetual Love. The comedy concerns a well-to-do New York family who enlist a “New Age deprogrammer” for a road trip they hope will culminate in the rescue of one of their own from a cult. Victoria Strouse is directing her own piece, originally written in 2008. Other cast members include Justin Bartha and Melanie Lynskey.

The Black List is an infamous collection of unproduced scripts and it makes perfect sense »

Tiff: Douglas Trumbull screens 'Ufotog,' makes case for immersive filmmaking

11 September 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Filmmaker and legendary special-effects guru Douglas Trumbull gave a special demonstration at the Toronto Film Festival, screening 10 minutes of Ufotog, his high-intensity, 3-D immersive work-in-progress that he filmed at 120 frames per second. Most Hollywood movies are filmed and projected at 24 frames per second, the industry standard for almost 100 years, even though digital camera and projector technology has opened the door for much greater speeds. In 2012, Peter Jackson filmed The Hobbit at 48 frames per second—and though the film grossed more than a billion around the globe, many viewers flinched at the film’s “soap-opera” look.

Fan Expo 2014: Sheryl Lee And The Grady Twins Talk Twin Peaks, The Shining, And Being Dead Girls

9 September 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The brief scenes in which Danny Torrence encounters The Grady Sisters haunting the halls of the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, are not only considered some of the scariest moments in that film, but some of the most ghastly images ever shot. One can only imagine what it must've been like for real-life twins Louise and Lisa Burns, who in their girlhoods, were the stuff nightmares were made of for an entire adult world. Perhaps nobody understands this experience better than Sheryl Lee, or, as the world knows her, Laura Palmer, of David Lynch's TV phenomenon Twin Peaks. For years, the mysterious murder of Laura Palmer and the identity of her killer, were the biggest subjects on the pop culture landscape, thanks to...

Watch: The Visual Poetry of Stanley Kubrick

5 September 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

“This is my rifle, there are many like it, but this one is mine,” could easily be amended to “this is my Stanley Kubrick tribute…” for the world wide web of Vimeo. Nevertheless, here is a nice addition to the catalogue from Marc Müller which pairs Kubrick’s characteristic classical pieces (“The Blue Danube,”  “Symphony #9,” etc.) with his use of tracking shots, combat, close-ups, one-point perspectives and on. If not bone-to-space station caliber, there are still some nice cuts to be had. »

Denzel Washington's Reddit Ama: The 10 Best Questions & Answers

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Not everyone can do a good Reddit Ama. Some people don't get the format or how to interact with fans or are just generally boring. Not Denzel Washington. He absolutely owned his Reddit Ama this afternoon, in anticipation of his upcoming film "The Equalizer," not just answering questions but expounding on them in detail. Here are our favorite tidbits from his Reddit. You can read the whole thing here.

On kicking all the butts in "The Book of Eli":

There were a lot of takes. We worked on those fight scenes for a month. They were well-choreographed, and in fact, there's one scene where i think I fight 15 different guys at once - we actually worked it so I could fight 15 guys at one time! I did ninety percent, I don't know what percent, my own stunts, the stuntmen didn't have to do as much, but that was mostly me. »

The Last Of Robin Hood – The Review

4 September 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

As we bid goodbye to the Summer action blockbusters, we say hello once more to the serious slate of films looking to pick up award gold in the last few months of the year. And what better subject matter than the true story or the biographical or “bio-pic”? Maybe a good mix of the two, and since Hollywood enjoys celebrating itself why not tackle one of its greatest stars? Though not as highly merchandised today at contemporaries Bogart, Monroe, or Hepburn (either one), few stars shone as brightly in that golden age than Errol Flynn, king of the silver screen swashbucklers. Now Flynn was played by the similarly dashing Jude Law ten years ago in the Howard Hughes story, The Aviator. And previously he was parodied wonderfully by Peter O’Toole as Alan Swann in the raucous comic gem My Favorite Year in 1982 and by former Bond Timothy Dalton as »

Cool Stuff: Spoke Art’s Stanley Kubrick Art Show

4 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Over the course of 45 years, Stanley Kubrick made only 13 films. It’s a staggering number because his work is so influential, so revered and still so incredibly powerful, each one might as well count for 100. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and his films continue to inspire artists […]

Review: Willem Dafoe can’t anchor Abel Ferrara's overwrought 'Pasolini'

4 September 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice — "Pasolini is me." So sang erstwhile Smiths frontman Morrissey on single "You Have Killed Me" from "Ringleader of the Tormentors," an album recorded in Italy. The very next track on the album opens with a sample of a very distinctive sound: the siren of an Italian ambulance. At the Venice festival, it's impossible to go for more than a day without hearing this dolorous yet urgent wail on the Lido; it's an unofficial soundtrack. These congruences were very much slushing around my head as I sat down for Abel Ferrara's "Pasolini." Prior to the festival, Maestro Ferrara, the man who brought "The Driller Killer," "King of New York," and the original "Bad Lieutenant" into the world gave various interviews about the project. Like Morrissey, he is an inveterate quote machine, an expert in controversy, and the words that drew the most attention were electrifying: "I know who killed him. »

2 September 2014 5:36 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Marc Müller put together this amazing tribute to the late, great Stanley Kubrick. The Montage features clips from The Killing, Paths of Glory, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut. I’m not sure why he left out the other Kubrick films, but that doesn’t change the fact that this compilation is fantastic. Watch below.

Featured music (in order of appearance):

Johann Strauss II – The Blue Danube

Georg Friedrich Händel – Sarabande

Ludwig Van Beethoven – Symphony #9

Gioachino Rossini – The Thieving Magpie

György Ligeti – Musica Ricercata II

NBC Plans Decalogue Remake, Exorcism Drama

2 September 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

NBC is developing a ten-hour miniseries about the Ten Commandments based on the 1989 Danish format "Decalogue". That series consisted of ten one-hour contemporary-set films with each exploring one or several moral/ethical issues.

The original boasted such famous fans as Roger Ebert and Stanley Kubrick, and the NBC adaptation will follow the same format. "Damages" creators Steve McPherson and Todd A. Kessler are also onboard the project.

The project is not to be confused with a very similar event series being developed at Wgn America which has the likes of Gus Van Sant, Lee Daniels, Jim Sheridan, Wes Craven and Michael Cera attached to direct episodes.

Meanwhile, the network has also handed out a script commitment to the exorcism drama series "The Possession of Maggie Gill". John Glenn ("Eagle Eye") is penning the script and will executive produce.

The story follows a loving a middle-class family in Oregon who find themselves terrorised by paranormal occurrences. »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »
