We’re All In for Godzilla Resurgence

21 July 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

West versus East interpretations of a classic movie monster.I’m rooting for Godzilla.

2014 brought us Gareth Edwards’s Godzilla, the American movie reboot starring the quintessential Japanese monster. That film did so well worldwide, Japan’s Toho Studios (the production company behind all previous Godzilla movies, minus the terrible one starring Matthew Broderick; that was America’s bad) decided mere months later that they were also going to reboot the franchise domestically after the longest span of time between movies had elapsed since the creature’s inception, and it was going to be in the same spirit as the older versions. That is, they were going to dress up a guy in a lizard suit and have him thrash around for an hour and a half. Check out the newest trailer below for Godzilla Resurgence, opening next Friday in Japan:

Watch Wild Trailer for Warren Beatty's First Movie in 18 Years

14 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Warren Beatty's long-in-the-works movie about Howard Hughes, Rules Don't Apply, has been given its first star-studded trailer.

The upbeat clip blends historical fiction and rom-com (à la Woody Allen's recent films) and finds Beatty playing the obsessive-compulsive mogul as an eccentric billionaire goofball — a far cry from Leonardo DiCaprio's portrayal of Hughes in Martin Scorsese's 2004 biopic, The Aviator.

While Beatty scores several laugh lines in the trailer ("Billionaire, goddammit, not millionaire," he grumbles while watching footage of himself, "and what the hell happened to the close-up of me in the cockpit? »

Watch: First Trailer for 'Rules Don't Apply' Directed by Warren Beatty

14 July 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"In this town, aren't those the rules?" Fox has unveiled the first official trailer for the film Rules Don't Apply, the latest feature directed by Warren Beatty since Bulworth in 1998. Beatty also stars in this as Howard Hughes, who contracts a young actress - played by Lily Collins - to work for him in Los Angeles. When she arrives, she meets her personal driver played by Alden Ehrenreich (who will next be playing a young Han Solo in the spin-off) and falls for him, but can't break Hughes' rule of having a relationship with an employee. The full cast includes Haley Bennett, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Matthew Broderick, Martin Sheen, Annette Bening, Oliver Platt and Steve Coogan. This looks quite fun and especially charming and amusing. It definitely has an old Hollywood feel to it, but not as much as Hail, Caesar. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer for Warren Beatty's Rules Don't Apply, »

‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Trailer: Warren Beatty Stars as Howard Hughes In 1950’s Hollywood Rom-Com

14 July 2016 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warren Beatty’s new romantic comedy “Rules Don’t Apply” follows an aspiring actress, a lovable driver, and the eccentric Hollywood legend Howard Hughes (played by Beatty himself) as they struggle with each other’s own idiosyncrasies. Set in Hollywood in 1958, small town beauty queen and Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins) arrives to Los Angeles to work under Howard Hughes. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich), a religious Methodist who’s engaged to be married to his middle school sweetheart. Soon they fall for each other, and their attraction puts their respective religious convictions to the test, and also places them in violation of Hughes’ #1 rule: No employee will have a relationship with a contract actress. But as Hughes’ behavior becomes more erratic and strange, it intersects with Marla and Frank’s lives in challenging, compelling ways, leaving no one unchanged. The film also »

Extreme Ghostbusters: revisiting an underappreciated cartoon

14 July 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Stephen Harber Jul 18, 2016

We look back at an often-overlooked part of the Ghostbusters legacy: it's Extreme Ghostbusters...

There was a time when no one cared about Ghostbusters. It was the late 90s - the pre-Pokemon, post-Mighty Morphin Power Rangers days to be exact. Nobody’s kid was exactly clamouring for a sequel, reboot, or a Ghostbusters continuation of any kind - except for Dan Aykroyd, who was practically lobbying for a third instalment while sitting front row at the Ghostbusters II premiere. Which is why we have this: an awkwardly timed, tonally disruptive Ghostbusters animated series.

Enter a brand new cartoon that picked up the sticky, ectoplasm-covered mantle of The Real Ghostbusters and wore it slightly askew to evoke that wholesome sense of 1990s irreverence: Extreme Ghostbusters.

Living up to its name, Xgb was extreme indeed. One glance at its radically inclusive team line-up is all you need to notice that. »

The 20 Best American Political Films of the Last 20 Years

29 June 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Upticks in the volume or quality of movies about American politics aren’t particularly good news; historically, it’s a pretty reliable warning sign that things in the real world aren’t going so well. And so, in the 20 years since IndieWire launched, we’ve seen a barrage of great movies about American politics. Yay?

Watch enough of them, and it’s hard to imagine how this country actually functions (or endures). These films can form a grim echo chamber that might seem it leaves us with little to celebrate.

And yet, there’s real joy to be found if you know where to look. Many of these movies are comedies — our increasingly absurd times inspire increasingly absurd movies. “Wag the Dog” seemed like outlandish satire when it premiered in 1997, but 19 years later it feels like a stone’s throw away from the truth. On the other hand, if 1997 audiences »

11 strange or ill-advised abandoned movie sequels

27 June 2016 7:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jun 30, 2016

Jessica Rabbit kidnapped by Nazis. Costner rescuing Princess Diana. We look back at a few strange movie sequels that were never made…

The multi-million dollar success of any movie will inevitably leave Hollywood executives clamouring for a sequel. And while there are plenty of movies whose stories are open-ended enough to warrant a return to the creative well, there are many times when coming up with a follow-up idea requires all sorts of imaginative leaps. Just look at something like Alien: Resurrection, which had to come up an elaborate reason why Ripley had (spoiler alert) managed to survive a swan-dive into a lead foundry in Alien 3.

Which brings us to this list, which is devoted to a few of the weirder sequel ideas that never made it to the big screen. An E.T. sequel in which little Elliott gets tortured by aliens? Forrest Gump dancing with Princess Diana? »

‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Finally Gets An Official Soundtrack, 30 Years After Film’s Release

22 June 2016 8:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” was released back in 1986, the teen drama starring Matthew Broderick never released a soundtrack to accompany the film. Now 30 years later, the John Hughes’ classic will get its own compilation of the songs featured in the film, thanks to a deal struck by La La Records and Paramount Pictures.

According to Salon, Paramount will release an authorized “Ferris Bueller” soundtrack, with songs and score, later this year to celebrate the movie’s 30th anniversary. At this time the track list is not finalized and a release date has not been announced, but could happen as early as September.
