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 »

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 »

Watch: 10-Minute Stanley Kubrick Tribute 'Kubrick's Poetry'

2 September 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s impossible to underestimate Stanley Kubrick’s influence on worldwide cinema. Aside from being one of this writer’s favorite directors (in fact, only Akira Kurosawa prevails, by a hair), his immaculate compositions each take full advantage of symmetry and depth. That is perhaps why Vimeo user Marc Müller decided to edit a poetic tribute to Kubrick’s work by juxtaposing some of his most famous shots with five classical pieces he used in his films. The clip begins with "The Blue Danube" from "2001: A Space Odyssey" playing over a series of Kubrick’s trademark tracking shots. This section works as a beginner’s introduction to Kubrick. Then we switch to a more somber tone with Handel’s "Sarabande," from the underrated "Barry Lyndon." You'll likely be surprised to see how this piece of music works perfectly with dialogue from "Full Metal Jacket." We then jump from Ludwig Van Beethoven’s "Symphony #9" to. »

Venice Film Festival’s U.S. Presence Subdued, Art Pics Dominate

31 August 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Venice — The absence of hefty U.S. fare is beginning to be felt as the Venice Festival enters its second stretch.

Many of this year’s really big guns — the Weinstein Co.’s Oscar hopeful “The Imitation Game,” Denzel Washington starrer “The Equalizer,” David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice” — are now firing off at Telluride, Toronto and even, in Anderson and Fincher’s case, the New York Film Festival.

Ethan Hawke starrer “Good Kill,” sold by Voltage Pictures and on paper Hollywood’s biggest indie commercial play at Venice, has still to world preem on the Lido. Given the high costs of opening a film on the Lido, especially for star-studded U.S. movies, however, Venice’s 71st edition raises the question of whether the balance of fest power is shifting to North America.

In the past two decades, Venice has held world premieres for several hundreds of U. »

How Many Have You Seen? Read Bill Hader's List Of 200 Movies Every Comedy Writer Should See

29 August 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Here's a fun fact about Bill Hader you might not know: he's a major film buff. Yep, the "Saturday Night Live" veteran likes his Criterion Collection movies as much as the next cinephile. His knowledge rolls pretty deep, and now he's sharing his love of cinema in a unique way.  Inside the book "Poking A Dead Frog: Conversations With Today’s Top Comedy Writers" by Mike Sacks, Hader provides his list of 200 movies every comedy writer should see. Yes, you'll see the usual staples from folks like Woody Allen, the Marx Brothers, Mel Brooks, and Charlie Chaplin, but there are some nice, not so obvious picks too. Billy Wilder's scathing "Ace In The Hole" notches a spot, as do Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut" and Robert Altman's "Nashville." So now the big question: how many have you seen? Here's all 200, let us know in the comments section. »

10 On-Set Injuries You Won’t Believe Actors Worked Through

27 August 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Newmarket Films

Despite the diva image of the acting profession, a lot of them are actually surprisingly resilient. Part of their job includes putting themselves into scary and sometimes dangerous situations, and when they get injured, they’re often encouraged to keep working (especially if Stanley Kubrick is involved — that guy missed his calling as a psychotic drill sergeant). While stunt people are the ones who are putting themselves in the line of fire (sometimes literally), actors get hurt on set pretty frequently. While these are usually relatively minor incidents — pulling a muscle, spraining an ankle, burning a finger — every once in a while they get seriously injured, and end up with battle scars that they can brag about at parties for years to come. That is to say, if the mere thought of their injury doesn’t make them break out into hives (and we would totally understand if »

Lincoln Center's James Brown Fest Showcases Peak Human Achievement

26 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Is it overselling it to claim that James Brown's 18-minute performance on 1964's The T.A.M.I. Show rivals the moon landing as the choicest footage of human achievement of the 1960s? Stanley Kubrick couldn't fake this: Hot-footing in a crisp, checkered vest and jacket, Brown connected the world of then to the world of now. (You can relish it at two rare screenings of the omnibus concert film at Lincoln Center Aug. 31.)

First, he glides through the mod "Out of Sight," often on just one foot. Then, stopping on an unexpected dime, he lays into the ballad "Prisoner of Love," but that archaic song can't hold him. Like the song form itself, or the teen-oriented pop of Jan and Dean and the rest of The T.A.M.I. Show, "Prisoner of Love" is an envelope, and Brown's a h »
