Martin Scorsese to Direct Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro in Short Film Promoting New Casino

23 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The good news: Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro are teaming up to star in a new film from Martin Scorsese.  The disappointing news: It’s for a short film promoting a casino.  According to Deadline, RatPac Entertainment is producing a short film that will be used as a campaign for Melco-Crown Entertainment, a global resorts and casino brand.  In addition to nabbing three movie stars and a legendary director, Terrence Winter (The Wolf of Wall Street) will handle the script.  The film will premiere next year at a new movie-themed resort in Studio City, Macau.  I assume it will be about how casinos are awesome as opposed to Casino, which shows a glamorous world of delights masking a seedy, violent underbelly. Despite the short's purpose, I’ll still watch it if I get a chance.  It’s too exciting to see this kind of talent align for any project. »

Ramones Biopic Lands Director Martin Scorsese

28 August 2014 5:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Martin Scorsese is planning to direct a biopic of the seminal punk rock band The Ramones, according to a new report at The Wrap.

The filmmaker will start work on the project after he wraps his next movie, Silence, which stars Andrew Garfield, Ken Watanabe and Liam Neeson.

The band, comprised of singer Joey Ramone, guitarist Johnny Ramone, bassist Dee Dee Ramone and drummer Tommy Ramone, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2002 after a legendary career that included influential songs such as "I Wanna Be Sedated" and "Blitzkrieg Pop."

All four band members have passed away, with Jeff Jampol and Dave Frey managing the band's estate, with plans under way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Ramones' first album in the year 2016. There are also plans for a documentary with never-before-seen footage of the band from the 1970s and 1980s, shot by George Seminara, »

28 August 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Martin Scorsese is reportedly planning to direct a biopic of seminal punk rock band "The Ramones".

The Ramones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2002 after a legendary career that included songs such as "I Wanna Be Sedated" and "Blitzkrieg Pop".

It's not known when Scorsese will begin work on the project. It has been suggested it will come after his next film, "Silence," but there is no script currently in place and the filmmaker has numerous other projects on his slate that are further along.

Amongst them is the De Niro & Joe Pesci re-teaming "The Irishman," a Frank Sinatra biopic, and the pilot of the "Shutter Island" TV series prequel "Ashcliffe".

Martin Scorsese to direct biopic on The Ramones

28 August 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As part of a 40th Anniversary celebration of the band’s 1976 debut album, Billboard is reporting that Martin Scorsese is attached to direct a biopic on the iconic punk rock band the Ramones.

The last surviving member of the band Tommy Ramone passed away last month, and now their manager of their estate, Jeff Jampol, intends to focus on the band’s complete legacy, planning a book, documentary, play and remastered music.

Scorsese is the type of director who would be an excellent choice for just about any project, but he has the musical background with concert films The Last Waltz (The Band), No Direction Home (Bob Dylan), Shine a Light (The Rolling Stones), and documentary George Harrison: Living in the Material World, as well as plans for a biopic on Frank Sinatra.

Currently Scorsese is in pre-production on Silence, a drama about two Jesuit priests in the 17th Century »

Bob Saget on Full House Revival: 'Not Everybody Would Want to Do It'

27 August 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There's no shortage of Full House fans eager to see the rumored sitcom revival make it to television. The entirety of the cast, however, may be another story. "Not everybody would want to do it. Maybe two-thirds of the cast would want to," Bob Saget, who played Danny Tanner on the 1987-1995 series, told People in April while promoting his memoir, Dirty Daddy. "John [Stamos] is such a good guy, and I think he would want it to happen in some way if it could. There's some stuff going on, I don't get involved in it, where people were trying to »

Seth MacFarlane Actually Recorded a Holiday Album During the Holidays

26 August 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Seth MacFarlane may be famous for creating irreverent comedies like Family Guy and Ted, but he takes crooning very seriously. Holiday for Swing, his Christmas-themed follow-up to 2011's Grammy-nominated Music Is Better Than Words (due this fall via Republic Records), finds him tapping a 65-piece orchestra and veteran arranger-producer Joel McNeely to perform a handful of well-known ("Let It Snow," "Baby It's Cold Outside") and semi-obscure yuletide chestnuts (Frank Sinatra's "Christmas Dreaming," Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney's "Snow"). MacFarlane called Billboard from the Boston set of Ted 2 to reflect on

Under The Dome season 2 episode 9 review: The Red Door

26 August 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We knew it couldn’t last. The latest episode of Under The Dome is barmier than ever. Here’s Frances’ review…

This review contains spoilers.

2.9 The Red Door

Let’s take a big fat internet-eraser to last week’s review, in which some idiot stated that Under The Dome had swapped its barminess for a new sensible approach. That clearly isn’t the case. What seemed, over the past fortnight, like a reboot into safer, more generic territory was really just the show rearing up and readying itself for this week’s gigantic leap back to bonkers-land.

At least the audience knows where it stands again. No longer do we have to grudgingly concede that Under The Dome has smartened up its act and started to make actual sense. We’re all back in the state of baffled-yet-entertained carbon-monoxide-leak dizziness that the series has kept us in since the dome came down. »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 6 - HitFix Picks

25 August 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Day 6 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon starts with "The Simpsons Bible Stories" and carries through "Children of a Lesser Clod," going from Episode 221 through Episode 268. Again, we're not in the Golden Age anymore, but that doesn't mean that there aren't great episodes kicking around in here. We have seven top-notch recommendations and that doesn't even include the crayon-in-the-brain favorite "Homr" or the toad-licking "Save me Jeebus!" fun of "Missionary: Impossible." Actually, "Missionary: Impossible" should definitely be here, but I'd already saluted two favorites and nobody else wanted to call it. Oh well. Check out our recommendations for Day 6 and chime in with your own favorites... Daniel Fienberg Recommends: "Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner" (4 a.m.) Episode #229 Why It's a Classic: I think there was a universality to the first 10-plus seasons of "The Simpsons" that maybe has lapsed a tiny bit in recent years, but when it comes to specificity, »

5 Peter Capaldi films you need to see ahead of his Doctor Who debut

21 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Digital Spy presents Doctor Who Week - seven days of special features celebrating the return of the world's favourite sci-fi series, and the arrival of a brand new Doctor on August 23.

When Peter Capaldi steps out of the Tardis this weekend for his Doctor Who debut, it'll be the first time many will see the wiry Scottish actor in action. Playing The Doctor will raise Capaldi's profile into the stratosphere, but he's been a supporting staple on the small and big screen since the early '80s.

Digital Spy casts its eyes over five film highlights from the 12th Doctor.

Local Hero (1983)

Capaldi's second acting job was in Bill Forsyth's brilliantly moving Local Hero, a comedy-drama about an American oil company worker who's dispatched to Scotland with a view to buying up land surrounding a small community. His first point of contact is Capaldi's Danny Oldsen, a fresh-faced bumbler who, »

With Are You Here, Matthew Weiner Botches His First Feature

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

Writer-director Matthew Weiner, creator of the magnificent Mad Men, has made a feature film — theoretically a comedy — that's just shy of terrible. Owen Wilson is Steve Dallas, a boozy Maryland TV weatherman who has no discernible life, and is proud of it. His lifelong friend, Ben (Zach Galifianakis), is a shut-in, and given to episodes of mania.

Ben's father dies and leaves his vast Pennsylvania farm and fortune to his son, much to the dismay of his shrill, Daddy-loyal sister (Amy Poehler). Steve, who has prostitutes on speed dial, begins wooing Angela (Laura Ramsey), the free-spirited young wife of the dead father.

When she tells Steve that "I try to avoid things that keep me from feeling," you know that by movie's end, Steve is going to be feeling »

Review: WWII Triple Feature: "Attack" (1955), "Beach Red" (1967) And "Attack On The Iron Coast"

19 August 2014 3:49 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer 

Now this is what you call a bargain: three terrific WWII flicks for only $10 on Amazon, courtesy of Shout! Factory's Timeless Media label, which continues to distribute first rate editions of films that were often considered to be second-rate at the time of their initial release. This "War Film Triple Feature" package includes three gems that were not particularly notable at the time of their release. Two have grown in stature, while the third has benefited only from Cinema Retro writer Howard Hughes' enthusiastic coverage in issue #25. The films included in the set are:

"Attack" (1955)- During the period of WWII, both the Allied and Axis film industries concentrated on feature films that were pure propaganda designed to motivate their fighting men and the public at large. By the early-to-mid-1950s, however,  more introspective viewpoints emerged among Hollywood directors and writers. With the conflict now over, »
