‘Haywire’ is an action film about gender equality with a star-making turn by Gina Carano

17 May 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“It’s best not to think of her as a woman. That would be a mistake.”

These words are uttered by Kenneth (Ewan McGregor) to freelance operative Paul (Michael Fassbender) in a scene somewhere toward the end of Steven Soderbergh’s truly excellent but much ignored action movie Haywire. The woman they are referring to is Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) and the reason they are trying to divorce themselves from the notion of her femininity is she is far too dangerous to underestimate. Interestingly, this line also has another meaning; that dwelling at the heart of the film is an argument for gender equality, not only in the world of the film but action movies in general. Critically praised but snubbed by audiences, could the failure of Haywire’s attempt to cement Gina Carano as a bona fide action star be blamed on Hollywood’s oversaturation of familiar tent pole franchises, »

International Star You Should Know: French Actor Pierre Niney

15 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dashing, refined and articulate, 26-year-old French actor Pierre Niney gained mainstream popularity in France with EuropaCorp romantic laugher “It Boy,” and broke out last year on a larger stage in Jalil Lespert’s “Yves Saint Laurent.” His performance as the famed fashion designer earned him a Cesar award for best actor.

Early Years

Niney trained at the prestigious Comedie-Francaise, and started his acting career in theater, but he has a soft spot for silent film comedy. “I grew up watching Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton,” he says. “When preparing a role, I work first on the body language and physical aspects of the performance; the psychological dimension comes naturally, once I’m in character.”

Fest Fave

Niney wowed the crowd with his versatility at the recent Colcoa fest celebrating French films in L.A., playing a troubled writer in Yann Gozlan’s Alfred Hitchcock-influenced thriller “A Perfect Man” (which »

How Jane the Virgin Is Redefining TV Narration

12 May 2015 6:06 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In honor of Jane the Virgin’s first-season finale, Vulture reached out to Anthony Mendez, a.k.a. the show's Latin lover narrator, to find out all his favorite moments to narrate, and get some tips and tricks to being the best narrator you can be. The conversation branched off into a discussion of how the show is redefining TV narration, breaking through the glass ceiling of midwestern accents, and diversifying the voices we hear on television.The narrator has been so influential to the tone of Jane the Virgin, and so much of voice work depends on the tenor of your voice. How did you come to the point of finding just the right tone? That's a very good question. In terms of the tone, obviously it's a combination of the character voice, which is something I've had in my repertoire anyway — the Latin lover, Antonio Banderas kind of thing. »

News Bits: Dirty, Ghost, Smoke, Liars, 33

29 April 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Dirty Grandpa

Zac Efron let it pretty much all show on the Georgia set of the upcoming comedy "Dirty Grandpa" this week. The actor flashed not just his chiseled torso but was running around in a pair of very tight flesh colored undies that got a little 'crack happy' at points. He did have a stuffed toy covering his manhood though for the scene.

Check out Just Jared for over two dozen photos. Speaking of Efron, his next film due for release "We Are Your Friends," has locked in an August 28th release date.

Ghost in the Shell

Walt Disney Pictures has moved up the release of DreamWorks' 3D film adaptation of the Japanese manga "Ghost in the Shell" by two weeks and will now open March 31st 2017. Rupert Sanders helms the project which stars Scarlett Johansson and will now go up against Sony's untitled Smurfs animation film.

Antonio Banderas' Chilean Miner Thriller 'The 33' Gets Fall Release Date

29 April 2015 7:46 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Alcon Entertainment has inked a November 13, 2015 release date for "The 33" via Warner Bros., per the companies' longterm motion picture agreement. Oscar-nominated producer Mike Medavoy ("Black Swan"), who brought the project to Alcon, worked closely with families and rescuers to tell this 2010 story of 33 miners who were trapped half a mile underground for 69 days after the collapse of a 121-year-old copper-gold mine. Starring Antonio Banderas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro and Juliette Binoche as one of the entombed miner's sisters, the film is entirely in English, with Chilean accents, which should secure its international appeal (while annoying others). Shot in working mines in Colombia and Chile, the film marks Patricia Riggen's feature film followup to 2007's "Under the Same Moon." "The 33" is written by Mikko Alanne, Craig Borten ("Dallas Buyers Club") and Michael Thomas from José Rivera's »

Does WB have another awards player with Chilean miners disaster flick 'The 33'?

28 April 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you don't believe awards season runs 365 days a year look no further than the news today that Alcon Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to "The 33."  Based on the Copiapó mining accident in 2010, the new drama centers on 33 minters who were trapped for 69 days in a collapsed copper-gold mine in Northern Chile.  Their plight captured the attention of the world and, surprise, Hollywood came calling.  Independently financed by Phoenix Pictures and Half Circle, "33" is being distributed in Chile by 20th Century Fox, but not in the U.S. The news Alcon came on board and Warner Bros. will distribute makes this a somewhat unusual story. Alcon announced that WB will release "The 33" on Nov. 13 which is smack dab in the middle of Oscar season.  Warner Bros. marketing and publicity teams have three other films that are expected to be awards players; Scott Cooper's "Black Mass," Jeff Nichols »

Alcon swoops on 'The 33'

28 April 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The La-based company has acquired North America and most international rights to the Chilean mine collapse survival story and will channel the Us release via its Warner Bros output deal on November 13.

Warner Bros will distribute The 33 across the bulk of international markets. Good Universe, whom lead producer Mike Medavoy initially hired some time ago to sell international, continues to service the closed deals.

Fox International holds Latin American rights and will kick off in Chile on August 6 to mark the fifth anniversary of the San Jose mine collapse that took place in the Atacama Desert in the north of the country.

Chinese distribution will be set by Alcon and Alan Zhang, the film’s Chinese executive producer who invested in the project.

Patricia Riggen directed the drama starring Antonio Banderas, Juliette Binoche, Mario Casas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro, Gabriel Byrne and James Brolin. The producers sought out Riggen after they saw her work on »

Alcon Entertainment swoops on 'The 33'

The La-based outfit has acquired North America and most international rights to the Chilean mine collapse survival story and will channel the Us release via its Warner Bros output deal on November 13.

Warner Bros will distribute across the bulk of international markets after lead producer Mike Medavoy concluded what he called “amicable” talks with Good Universe to take back the rights.

Fox International handles Latin America, while Chinese distribution will be set between Alcon and a Chinese party that made an investment in the project.

Patricia Riggen directed the drama starring Antonio Banderas, Juliette Binoche, Mario Casas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro, Gabriel Byrne and James Brolin.

The 33 is based on true events surrounding the 69-day ordeal of a group of mostly Chilean miners trapped more than 200 stories below ground in 100 degree heat. As the world watched, every miner was eventually rescued.

‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2’ Takes a Baton Beating From Critics: Read the Worst Reviews

17 April 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Very seldom do movies manage to unite critics in mutual abhorrence, but “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” is doing just that. The sequel to the 2009 Kevin James comedy about a bumbling security guard is not just being blasted in reviews, it’s been decimated ahead of its opening weekend. The alleged comedy currently has a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That puts it on par with other “classics” like the 1999 Dennis Rodman action flick “Simon Sez,” and the Antonio Banderas/Lucy Liu clunker “Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever.” See Photos: 21 Movie Sequels That Took Forever to Hit the Big Screen Ouch. »

Antonio Banderas Declares Foray Into Fashion (and Why We're Rooting for Him)

9 April 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Celebs who get into the fashion game have the odds notoriously stacked against them. For every Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, there are a dozen DMXs, LiLos and even SPJs (whose clothing brands Bloodline, 6126 and Bitten have...well, bitten the dust). Next up to bat may be Antonio Banderas, he of smouldering accent and, yes, refined style, who announced his move into fashion, The Huffington Post reported. "I'm going to study clothing design. It's something that has been on my mind for a long time," he announced on a British talk show. While such a statement might cue eye rolling from dedicated fashion plates, consider this: By "study clothing design," he doesn't mean »
