Warner Bros. releases new Black Mass featurette

28 August 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new featurette for Black Mass, the studio’s upcoming biopic about Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger. Check out the video after the plot synopsis down below…

The featurette, which is titled “An Unholy Alliance,” shows interviews with cast and crew members, new footage from the film and teases the partnership between Whitey and his brother Bill Bulger.

In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.

Heres a Slew of New Tremors 5 Bloodlines Clips

26 August 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

This might be just the kickstarter required to see Kevin Bacon finally return to the franchise. For the unaware hes already expressed a desire to once more tangle with those disgusting Graboids and if Bloodlines does what we think it might push fan interest to new heights it doesnt seem too unlikely that Bacon might reprise his role as the lovable Val McKee. »

Kevin Bacon to Star in Stage Version of ‘Rear Window’

24 August 2015 9:01 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Kevin Bacon will be channeling Jimmy Stewart in a stage version of the classic crime story “Rear Window” to play this fall at Connecticut’s Hartford Stage. Tony winner Darko Tresnjak (“A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder”) will direct the production, which will run from October 22-November 15.

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

24 August 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

The Wolfpack Review

The Angulo brothers are a populist documantarian’s dream. Bright young things with natural Instagram insouciance, a quirky moviemaking hobby and a staggering back story. These boys could crush you at Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, fashion you a paper gun arsenal, quote Charles Foster Kane verbatim and still find time to modestly seek your opinion

The Charming "Danny Collins" Deserved More Time in the Spotlight

20 August 2015 12:40 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Charming. That’s the one word to describe Dan Fogelman’s brand of filmmaking. With a background that includes penning Cars, Fred Claus, and Tangled, his more recent, and perhaps breakthrough turn was as scribe of the, yes, charming Crazy, Stupid, Love. With a career altering performance from Steve Carell and a supporting cast that toted great turns by Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, and Emma Stone, with a little Kevin Bacon tossed in the starpower salad, Crazy, Stupid, Love deftly mixed midlife drama with heart-melting sincerity, all overpowered by good laughs throughout. Charming.

With Danny Collins, Fogelman makes his directorial debut with a cast fit for awards season and a project that is, well, you get it.

Johnny Depp Has But One Rule In Gripping TV Spot For Black Mass

18 August 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With exactly one month to go until its theatrical release, Warner Bros. has pumped out the latest TV spot for Scott Cooper’s Whitey Bulger crime drama Black Mass, showcasing style, crime, and a performance that could mark a return to form for Johnny Depp.

Assuming the role of the infamous Bulger, Black Mass will have Depp play the sociopath who ruled Boston from the shadows, simultaneously operating as a FBI informant and pulling the strings in the city’s criminal underbelly. Even before today’s sneak peek, the first trailers for Cooper’s drama hint at a deep and complex role for the Hollywood A-lister, and the film harbors all the dramatic potential for Depp to sink his teeth into the meaty role. Sporting a hair piece and dental prosthetics, The Pirates of the Caribbean stalwart is nearly unrecognizable in the lead role, and we’re excited to see »

The Fine Bros’ ‘Six Degrees Of Everything’ To Premiere August 18th On TruTV

17 August 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The guys who rose to prominence by dishing out Internet spoilers and collecting reactions to viral videos will soon connect the dots between disparate topics. The Fine Bros, whose 13 million subscribers make them two of YouTube’s biggest stars, will premiere the first episode of their second TV show, Six Degrees of Everything, at 9:30 Pm Est on August 18th on TruTV.

Six Degrees of Everything, as its title implies, which give its subjects the Kevin Bacon treatment by linking them through a series of intermediate topics. The first episode, for example, will somehow find a connection between Albert Einstein and breast implants, while checking in with Elvis Presley and The Incredible Hulk along the way. The goal, as Benny and Rafi Fine explain in a video they made with TruTV, is to provide high quality “edutainment” for viewers. “With every topic we’re touching upon,” says Benny Fine in the video, »

Movie Review – Cop Car (2015)

15 August 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cop Car, 2015.

Directed by Jon Watts.

Starring Kevin Bacon, James Freedson-Jackson, Hays Wellford, Camryn Manheim and Shea Whigham.

Synopsis:

A small town sheriff sets out to find the two kids who have taken his car on a joy ride.

Oh to be a child again! Symbolizing innocence and naivety, young kids often like to make stupid decisions because those stupid decisions often lead to an event miniscule in the eyes of adults, but for them an adventurous thrill ride. So when two children (it must be said immediately that they are shockingly well-acted and elicit the behavior of real 10-year-olds) run away from home and come across the titular vacated cop car, they can’t resist from touching it, to getting inside of it and letting their imagination run wild as they pretend they are in a shootout on the road, to eventually taking the thing for a joyride once they stumble upon the keys. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Let's kick things off with some comedy gold, shall we? Kristen Wiig visited "Late Night" to serve up some alternate dubbed dialogue for Seth's monologue. Her partner in dubbing crime? Fred Armisen.

Meanwhile, Titus Burgess swung by and chatted about working with Tina Fey (aka the Best Boss of All Time), and -- more importantly -- singing Beyonce with her on a private plane. #Blessed

Over on "The Tonight Show," Paul Giamatti spoke about his awesome wig in "Straight Outta Compton," as well as his love for Ice Cube. Honestly, who doesn't love Ice Cube?
