John Powell on Five of His Notable Scores

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Composer John Powell talks about his five fave movie music projects and why:

Face/Off (1997)

“You do your first big movie, and it’s a John Woo film with Nicolas Cage and John Travolta. The premiere was at the Mann Chinese; Hans (Zimmer) got me a limo. There was a big crowd, and as I got out of the limo, there was this sigh of disappointment when they realized that it wasn’t John Travolta. I recommend this to all Hollywood composers. Within a small group of people, we may be well known, but it’s not why people go to the movies.”

Endurance (1999)

“The first person that Hans introduced me to, and got me involved with, was Terrence Malick. He was producing a docudrama about Haile Gebrselassie, the great Ethopian long-distance runner. Malick treated me as an artist. Hollywood is full of very, very artistic people. It is a business, »

Jerry Bruckheimer Gives National Treasure 3 And Bad Boys 3 Updates

22 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The sheer number of projects that producer Jerry Bruckheimer has at any given time is baffling, and frankly, it’s surprising that the man gets anything done. He oversees several long-running film franchises and TV shows, most of which have sequels in the works. Last week, he offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, and now we have news about two more: Bad Boys 3 and National Treasure 3.

The fact that a third Bad Boys film hasn’t happened yet is pretty surprising, considering that the first one grossed $141 million in 1995, and its follow up in 2003 brought home $273 million. It’s not like director Michael Bay is against sequels, and he certainly likes to make money, so why haven’t we seen a third film now that we’re 11 years past the last installment?

According to Bruckheimer, all of »

Bad Boys 3 Hasn't Happened Due to Bad Timing

22 April 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

During a new interview, producer Jerry Bruckheimer spoke about "Bad Boys 3," which has been rumored ever since the second film was released. According to Bruckheimer, the third film is a victim of bad timing. "It's so funny because we'll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will [Smith] is off doing two movies," he explained. "And then, Will will come back and be real excited about it, and Sony will say, 'Well, maybe it's not the time for this.' And then, 'Ride Along' came out and was a big hit, and now they're all excited to make the movie, but Will is off doing something else. It's just trying to get everybody together to make it. But, we're working on the script. We have a lot of faith and hope that we'll do it." Bruckheimer also gave an update on Nicolas Cage's "National Treasure 3, »

Jerry Bruckheimer Gives Update on 'Bad Boys 3' and 'National Treasure 3'

22 April 2014 1:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, producer Jerry Bruckheimer offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, but those are just two of his highly-anticipated projects that are currently in development. During a new interview with Collider, the producer offered updates on a pair of sequels, National Treasure 3 and Bad Boys 3.

Both projects have been in development for several years, even though their predecessors, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets ($457 million worldwide) and 2003's Bad Boys II ($273 million worldwide) fared quite well at the box office. However, it still may be quite some time before we see either of these sequels in theaters.

Bad Boys 3 has been in the works for over 10 years, with Sony recently hiring screenwriter David Guggenheim (Safe House) to work on the script back in December. Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that the project's real problem has to deal with the timing being off, »

Jerry Bruckheimer Offers ‘Bad Boys 3′ and ‘National Treasure 3′ Updates

22 April 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Even in today’s constant stream of sequels, reboots and remakes, it seems that some franchises can’t help but stall out in between installments. Ghostbusters 3 is perhaps the best example of Hollywood trying to continue a hit franchise, only to run into years of development hell in the process. However, Bad Boys 3 and National Treasure 3 are on the list as well.

Both franchises have two box office hits under their belts and heavy-duty star power with actors like Will Smith and Nicolas Cage, respectively. Yet, 11 years has passed since Bad Boys II scored $273 million at the worldwide box office, and it’s been a full seven years since Cage went treasure-hunting, previously ...

Joe review: the violence inherent in the system

22 April 2014 4:44 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Nicolas Cage finally gets away from his shouty, cartoony madmen, but it’s hard to shake the sense that this was laboriously constructed around him as a showcase. I’m “biast” (pro): I like Nicolas Cage when he’s taking acting seriously

I’m “biast” (con): I’m hot and cold on David Gordon Green

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Booze and smokes and meanness. It’s what’s for breakfast. And lunch and dinner. This is what the men of Joe live on. And if a lad hangs around those men long enough, he will pick up some life lessons, like how to make hookers think you have money and how to abuse dogs while convincing yourself you love dogs and why the cops have it in for an ex-con and how to have “good” reasons to be violent, »

Joe Movie Review

21 April 2014 4:40 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Joe Director: David Gordon Green Starring: Nicolas Cage, Tye Sheridan, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Gary Poulter For many directors, the independent film realm, and its more constrictive parameters of budget storytelling, are a thing to leave behind — to graduate from, as part of a move up into the “big leagues.” David Gordon Green, though, even as he has crafted Hollywood studio comedies like “Pineapple Express,” “Your Highness” and “The Sitter,” has kept one foot planted in the indie arena, and more plaintive portraiture. “Joe,” his latest effort, is a tender, lyrical slice of underclass drama, anchored by a magnetic performance from Nicolas Cage, that also exercises a certain kind  [ Read More ]

‘Joe’ Review

20 April 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Nicolas Cage, Tye Sheridan, Gary Poulter, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Adriene Mishler, Brian Mays, Aj Wilson McPhaul, Sue Rock, Heather Kafka, Brenda Isaacs Booth, Anna Niemtschk, Elbert Hill III | Written by Gary Hawkins | Directed by David Gordon Green

The pairing of director David Gordon Green and actor Nicholas Cage is an intriguing one. Green was once an indie darling winning critical praise for films like George Washington, All the Real Girls and Snow Angels. Once big Hollywood got a hold of him many argued he lost his touch as the quality of his films dropped. When films like The Sitter and Your Highness failed critically and financially most figured he was the latest example of wasted potential. Last year he went back to basics with Prince Avalanche and saw some of that praise return. That praise will no doubt continue with his latest film Joe.

Nicolas Cage’s demise has been well documented. »

Johnny Depp Facts: 33 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the A-List Star

18 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Believe it or not, Johnny Depp has been lighting up the silver screen for three decades.

Since breaking out on the hit show "21 Jump Street," Depp has become well known for his eccentric roles, most notably as the suave pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. While the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise made him a bankable star, Depp owes much of his career to renowned director Tim Burton for collaborations such as "Edward Scissorhands" (1990) and "Sleepy Hollow" (1999) -- just to name two.

But there's still much to know about the international star. From his early ambitions as a musician to his surprising fear, here are 33 things you probably don't know about Johnny Depp.

1. Depp was born in Owensboro, Kentucky in 1963 to Betty Sue Palmer, a waitress, and John Christopher Depp, a civil engineer.

2. He and his family moved frequently during his childhood, living in more than 20 different places before settling in Miramar, »

Oliver Stone slams co-pros at Beijing

16 April 2014 11:53 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Oliver Stone was characteristically outspoken on the second day of the Beijing International Film Festival (Bjiff), challenging China to rethink international co-productions and start making films that examine its past.

Speaking at the Sino-Foreign Film Co-production Forum, Stone said, “most international co-productions are bullshit”, due to their bad acting and casting, as expecting actors to use a second language usually doesn’t work.

“The international ballgame has gotten bigger and bigger with films like Iron Man 3 and Transformers,” Stone said, referring to the trend of incorporating Chinese elements into studio pictures. “I hope they use China well. But using Chinese actors in the background because you want money is not an artistic approach.”

Stone also said he’s “run into a wall” three times trying to make films in China about Mao Tse-tung, the Cultural Revolution and a documentary around the Beijing Olympics. “Three times I’ve made real efforts to coproduce and come up short »

Producer Jeremy Bolt Announces Fall 2014 Release for Outcast Starring Nicolas Cage; Already Planning Outcast 2

16 April 2014 8:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There is just one article in the Collider archives on Outcast.  The casting announcement revealed Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen play two 12th century European crusaders who travel to China to find redemption.  Producer Jeremy Bolt (Pompeii) has bigger plans for the feature than we anticipated.  You see, Outcast is a co-production with China's Yunnan Film Group, and China is an increasingly important international market.  Bolt is confident enough in the property to promise Outcast 2: "Outcast has been acclaimed by buyers, and we are determined to make a sequel."  Backing up, Bolt also announced the Outcast release schedule [via Variety]: “We are planning a worldwide release, including the Us and China, in September and October this year." Outcast is the directorial debut of stunt coordinator Nick Powell (Resident Evil: Retribution).  It sounds like the perfect Nicolas Cage vehicle at this stage in his career.  Yifei Liu, Fernando Chien, Andy On, »

16 April 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Even though it can sometimes feel like all of human existence is just an extended teaser-trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, the latest trailer for the super-sequel actually contains a few new pieces of information, mostly focused on previously-unfinished special effects and the always-controversial Quicksilver factor. Check out the trailer here, and now let’s dive deep into the last tantalizing piece of promotion until the movie finally arrives and human existence becomes an extended teaser-trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Nicolas Cage’s Dumb Yet Fascinating ‘Trouble in Louisiana’ Trilogy

15 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Every few years, Nicolas Cage reminds us what a compelling screen performer he is and can be. While such reminders seem fewer and further between, the utter expendability of much of his recent filmography make strong performances like his brooding lead in David Gordon Green’s Joe all the more powerful – not because we forgot about Cage’s talents, but because we’re afraid that he might have. Joe has been deemed (by this site and others) to be a “return to form” for Cage. It’s easy to declare with a handful of titles what form Cage is returning to. In celebrated roles like Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas, and Bringing Out the Dead Cage has displayed an uncanny ability to balance pathological self-destruction with varying undertones of dark comedy. He is the actor of choice for men who struggle outside the norms of society, yet wouldn’t feel comfortable anywhere else. But »

14 April 2014 6:38 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Film Face-off: Kevin Costner vs. Nicolas Cage

14 April 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Kevin Costner's Draft Day opened wide this past weekend, and Nicolas Cage's Joe is currently in limited release. Both of their last names start with a "c." Both men are in their 50s (Costner is 59 years old, Cage is 50). Most importantly, these guys normally fall into a love and/or hate category with audiences. Let's see what happens when they fight to the death in this week's Film Face-off. Box Office Kevin Costner Costner's films have earned a total of $1.8 billion in America, and averaged $55 million. Four of those films have made more than $100 million. Nicolas Cage Cage's movies have earned $2.4 billion in America, and averaged $44 million. He's had eight...

Review: Joe

14 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Filmmaker David Gordon Green has shot two films in Central Texas now (well, three, but only two are out yet), and he gets it. He really does. For both Prince Avalanche and now Joe, he took stories that could be set anywhere and ground them in local rural settings, with characters played by residents who weren't previously professional actors. The most affecting scene in Prince Avalanche was the one in the ruins with Joyce Payne.

In Joe, I felt like I could drive 30 miles and find the unnamed town in which the film was set, with all its characters intact. In such a setting, the lead actors fit in and feel like characters, not stars. Even Nicolas Cage

Cage plays the title character, whose job is leading a team of laborers to clear a forest for development -- hacking at trees with axes that contain poisonous liquids. He's approached by »
