Here Are 15 Movie Musical Adaptations That Don’t Suck

22 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Film and television adaptations of popular musicals haven’t been doing so hot lately. After enduring the disastrous live-action Peter Pan that aired on NBC earlier this month – not to mention last year’s The Sound of Music featuring Carrie Underwood “acting” – plus less-than-stellar translations of Nine (2009) and Rock of Ages (2012), is it possible Broadway and the screen just don’t mix?

With Into the Woods skipping into theaters Dec. 25, we’ll get a little bit closer to finding out. We’re optimists and think there certainly is a place for musicals at the movies and on television. Heck, there’s a laundry list of successful adaptations to prove it. The song-and-dance mojo wasn’t present for some efforts – let’s just forget about Pierce Brosnan’s singing in Mama Mia (2008) – but others were right on point. And even won Oscars. 

West Side Story (1961)

Rotten Tomatoes score: 94 percent

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 117 – The November Man & As Above So Below

17 December 2014 9:54 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

We’re slowly catching up on our podcast episodes, and this one covers The November Man and As Above/So Below. Stay tuned for a rush of our episodes, but remember you can always catch the latest ones by subscribing on iTunes, or check our Stitcher player on the homepage, and you can always tune in live on blogtalkradio.com.

This was an oddly fun week, considering we didn’t have any movies to love, which is a strange statement on how well these films managed their averageness. For The November Man especially, though the film may not have impressed us overall, there was a lot to like about it, and watching Pierce Brosnan.

As Shane couldn’t stop saying about The November Man, it’s comfort food, and will work as such for a lot of people.

The ratings on the article are for The November Man.

Judi Dench at 80: Revisit 7 of her best moments as James Bond's M

9 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dame Judi Dench celebrates her 80th birthday today (Tuesday, December 9), and she immediately sprang to mind when we cast our eyes over the first clapperboard image from Spectre - the presence of a porcelain bulldog a timely reminder of her contribution to the 007 series. As much as we love the choice of Ralph Fiennes as Bond's new boss, Dame Judi will be missed in the iconic role.

To mark the Oscar-winning Brit star's birthday, Digital Spy rounds up seven of her best moments as M - in chronological order - below...

1. GoldenEye (1995) - "You don't like me, Bond..."

After a six-year hiatus following Licence to Kill, Bond returned in the form of Pierce Brosnan with question marks hanging over the franchise. Was he still relevant post-Cold War? Is he a dated action hero lined up next to John McClane et al?

The most self-referential of all the 007 outings, GoldenEye posed »

Sequels abandoned after the film before them struggled

7 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Green Lantern 2 and Terminator: Salvation 2, to a Cat In The Hat sequel and Batman Triumphant: sequels killed by the earlier film...

Earlier this year, it was revealed that a sequel was in the early stages for the new Pierce Brosnan action thriller, The November Man. Remember it? Probably not: The November Man would go on to flop in the Us, grossing just $25m in the Us, and when it finally made it to British cinemas, it was released on just one screen (presumably to fill a contractual obligation somewhere along the line).

There's been no word yet on the fate of The November Man 2, but the outlook does not seem favourable. It wouldn't be the first time though that a sequel had been loudly mooted before even a first film was released, only to be quietly abandoned when something - usually related to box office takings - didn't go to plan. »

Does Not Go Quietly: Schrader’s Latest Tampered Product

Veteran film director and screenwriter Paul Schrader just can’t seem to catch a break. Much like the fate of his 2003 Exorcist prequel, his latest directorial effort, Dying of the Light has also been reedited, scored and mixed without his approval, which led to a quiet movement of protest via social media where Schrader asked audiences to avoid this studio product, which also included the support of stars Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin. However, it’s just the kind of publicity that would perhaps enliven interest for a film that would otherwise have flown under the radar (and one thinks Cage should have asked audiences the same request of this year’s earlier release of Left Behind, instead). Rife with a series of awkward developments and bizarrely presented characters that are grimly determined to maintain an aura of stilted seriousness that »

10 Best James Bond Video Games

5 December 2014 4:53 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

EA

Didn’t think he’d stay away for very long did you?

The world of super-spies, luscious ladies and washboard-ab’d chaps isn’t one that’s kept away from silver screens for any length of time. And so with the announcement of Bond: Spectre heralding in all manner of tributes to what went before and what’ll be coming in the next few years, it’s worth mentioning those times it translated into video games too.

Although the James Bond mythos is ripe for adaptation, it’s actually quite surprising how little there are to pick from when you stack up every entry the martini-slinging agent has been a part of. Although to be honest you could attribute that to a certain first-person shooter that both redefined the genre and also set the standard on how to deliver a movie tie-in that wasn’t a hot mess, making »

James Bond at the Oscars

4 December 2014 4:52 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier today Sony streamed a special announcement about the forthcoming James Bond film, revealing not just the new title ("Spectre"), but a list of new cast members, including Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux and Christoph Waltz. And of course, we broke the news a few weeks ago that "Interstellar" cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema would be stepping into Roger Deakins' shoes behind the camera. Exciting stuff, and a good enough reason, I suppose, to look back through the history of Bond at the Oscars. Eight of the 23 007 films released to date have score nominations. But it took a couple of swings before one of them finally scored some recognition from the Academy. That happened when 1964's "Goldfinger" netted a Best Sound Effects nomination. "Thunderball" followed the next year with some Best Visual Effects respect. Both won their respective bids. The franchise then took a few years off from the »

Bond 24: Meet the new cast of Spectre

4 December 2014 11:22 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

2012's Skyfall was one of the most acclaimed Bond chapters in history, and when director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan both confirmed their returns for Bond 24, you could almost hear the collective sigh of relief among 007 fans and movie buffs alike.

At Pinewood Studios this morning (December 4), Mendes announced five new cast members for Bond 24, aka Spectre, who will join Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear.

Below, Digital Spy rounds up some key facts about the actors, and what little we know about their respective characters.

Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser

While he's probably the biggest name on this list, the Austrian-born Waltz was more or less unknown to English-speaking audiences until 2009, when he starred in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

His performance as the charismatic, sociopathic SS agent Hans Landa (aka 'The Jew Hunter') earned him an Oscar and a tidal wave of offers from Hollywood. »

Aston Martin to Provide Hero Car in a 12th James Bond Movie

4 December 2014 10:51 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Bond has no plans to give up the keys to an Aston Martin anytime soon.

In what’s become the longest relationship between an automaker and a film franchise, Aston Martin will serve as 007’s preferred vehicle of choice in “Spectre,” the 24th film in the spy series.

The Sam Mendes-directed film will mark the 12th time Bond has driven an Aston Martin in the franchise throughout the company’s 50-year relationship with the films.

The British sports car maker on Thursday unveiled the DB10 that will appear in “Spectre” when the movie rolls into theaters on Nov. 6, 2015.

What’s unique about the vehicle is that Aston Martin’s design and engineering teams worked closely with Eon Prods, which produces the Bond films and Mendes, to design the DB10 specifically for “Spectre.”

Only ten DB10s will be built, according to Aston Martin.

Breaking: Oh Jimmy! Daniel Craig Returns as 007 in "Spectre"

4 December 2014 6:29 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It wouldn't be accurate to call James Bond the mother the father of all franchises since serialized storytelling was with us since the very beginning of the recorded image. Nevertheless it does sometimes feel like James Bond pioneered the art of staying in the game. It maybe even influenced the rebooting craze long before it had a name with its continual cosmetic surgery; can you imagine how expensive it is to make Timothy Dalton look like Pierce Brosnan and then like Daniel Craig?

Daniel Craig is among the sexiest mofos on the planet but perhaps this is why he looks so beat up all the time? Either that or because people have been torturing him onscreen from the very beginning.

Case in point: This is not an image from the new Bond film but from the Cate Blanchett film Elizabeth (1998)

Why The James Bond Franchise Isn't Goofy Anymore

3 December 2014 2:00 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Similar to Christopher Nolan's Batman, when James Bond got the reboot treatment a few years back, it came with a new darker, more serious tone. Daniel Craig's version of 007 is a seemingly much more damaged individual than the incarnations played by the likes of Pierce Brosnan and Roger Moore. It's been successful thus far, with Casino Royale and Skyfall being considered two of the greatest Bond movies ever made, but it's still interesting that the franchise would turn its back on that part of its legacy. So what's the reason? According to Daniel Craig, it's all Mike Myers' fault. With a big announcement about the upcoming Bond 24 set to arrive tomorrow at around 6am Est, MI6-hq has dug up a few interesting quotes that Daniel Craig made a couple years ago revealing why we shouldn't expect a level of goofiness in the mayhem of the franchise's next installment. »

The 35 Greatest Murder Mystery Movies Ever Made

28 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Murder mysteries are so commonplace on TV that each week offers seemingly dozens of them on police procedural series and detective shows. But in the movies, whodunits are surprisingly rare, and really good ones rarer still. There's really only a handful of movies that excel in offering the viewer the pleasure of solving the crime along with a charismatic sleuth, often with an all-star cast of suspects hamming it up as they try not to appear guilty.

One of the best was "Murder on the Orient Express," released 40 years ago this week, on November 24, 1974. Like many films adapted from Agatha Christie novels, this one featured an eccentric but meticulous investigator (in this case, Albert Finney as Belgian epicure Hercule Poirot), a glamorous and claustrophobic setting (here, the famous luxury train from Istanbul to Paris), and a tricky murder plot with an outrageous solution. The film won an Oscar for passenger »

Things I Learned on the Awards Circuit, from Costner, Aniston & Chastain to Streep in 'Into the Woods' (Q & A Video)

Sometimes the media join the scene. Who could resist an invite to ex-Bond Pierce Brosnan's Malibu manse (complete with Impressionist paintings), adjacent to Steven Spielberg's, right on the Pacific Ocean? It turns out he's pals with Rory Kennedy, who also lives in Malibu, and was happy to give her excellent "Last Days in Vietnam" a boost, just as the doc branch was heading for the November 21 deadline for submitting their tallies for the shortlist of fifteen, which the Academy will reveal on December 2 or 3.  Monday brought a lunch party at Spago in Beverly Hills for "Interstellar," hosted by Paramount chief Brad Grey, who chatted up director Christopher Nolan, who has been hands-on throughout the process of releasing "Interstellar" at a studio that does not market films in the same way as did his long-time home studio Warner Bros. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain also turned on »
