Why 'Point Break' Just May Be 1991's Perfect Movie

7 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In a crazy turn of events, Keanu Reeves is 50 years old. To honor the actor's five-decades-old milestone, we're celebrating one of his best movies, "Point Break," and explain why it fits its year of release, 1991, so perfectly.

Prior to the early '90s classic, Reeves hadn't really ventured into action movies and was best known for playing a pretty boy, high school stoner in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" (1989). "Point Break" would change all that. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker"), the movie paired Reeves with an established star and co-heartthrob, Patrick Swayze, fresh off hits like "Road House" (1989) and "Ghost" (1990). Together, they would create a surfing bromance too good to be true.

Set against the backdrop of the coastal Los Angeles area, "Point Break" captured the surfing culture of the region, while simultaneously depicting the criminal underbelly of the city. Los Angeles had long been the bank robbery capital of the world, »

13 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Following in the footsteps of Sylvester Stallone and John Travolta, movie legend Arnold Schwarzenegger will take to the stage in London later this year in a special Q+A and movie retrospective, hosted by chat show host/ comedian Jonathan Ross. According to the press release we’ve just received, the qudience will also get the chance to purchase tickets for a one to one photo opportunity and a very select and private meet and greet session. Arnie will also take part in a black tie dinner event at The Grand Pavillion, Leeds.

“For once I won’t have a publicist saying, ‘Don’t ask him about his private life, don’t ask him how much money he makes, how much is in the bank,’ all that kind of stuff,” he said of the UK dates. “England really was the country that gave me the biggest break in my career. I »

Has Hollywood Found Something Better Than IMAX?

1 September 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was only about five years ago that James Cameron's Avatar changed the world's perspective on the cinematic experience and both IMAX and 3D. And while we've seen some marvelous titles take advantage of both formats in the time since, the reality is that the industry is now regularly looking for a way to stay fresh and innovative. We recently saw the format known as 4Dx - which turns the theater into a roller coaster ride of sorts - arrive in the United States, but there's more still on the way. For example, it's time for you to learn about Escape. Since the beginning of the film medium, theaters have been built to feature a single, central screen, but Escape, a new theater configuration introduced by the projector company Barco, is tweaking that model. Two screens are used on either side of the main central screen in an attempt »

New Ghost In The Shell 25th Anniversary Poster

1 September 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Japanese anime Ghost In The Shell is an Empire-acclaimed world cinema great, with the manga on which it's based celebrating its 25th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the film has an upcoming re-release. It has a new poster to mark the occasion. Click below for a closer look. What’s so good about this film? Easy. It’s a feast of blistering visuals that wears its cyberpunk spirit on its sleeve and helped set up big Hollywood sci-fis ahead. Filmmakers from James Cameron to Steven Spielberg have acknowledged the influence of Mamoru Oshii’s animation, while Lana and Andrew Wachowski have pointed to it as a key Matrix touchstone.With shades of Philip K. Dick, the story sets a cyborg gumshoe on the trail of shadowy hacker The Puppet Master. But is she human or is she dancer just a machine? Those philosophical questions will obviously be familiar to Blade Runner »

Update: Oz Grants Disney Transfer Of Tax Incentive To Lure ‘Pirates 5′ Down Under

1 September 2014 2:12 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Monday Sept 1, 2:12 Am: The Australian government has approved the reassignment of a A$21.6M ($20.2M) tax incentive for Disney to bring the shoot for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Down Under. In 2013, those same funds had been earmarked for 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea: Captain Nemo, but the studio is understood to have asked for a transfer with that project now in stasis. According to local trade If.com, a spokesman for Oz Arts Minister George Brandis said, “The government is pleased to agree to Disney’s request to enable earlier funding to be repurposed for the production of Pirates Of The Caribbean 5.” However, “Any decision to film productions in Australia… is a commercial matter for Disney.” The incentive is said to fall a bit short of an extra boost Disney was seeking and could mean that regional agencies would be relied upon to make up the difference. »

10 Movies Ruined By Fan-Boy Hate

29 August 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

San Diego Comic Con has become one of the biggest film events of the year. For studios it’s treated as both a high-profile location to announce new projects and a pre-release measure of a film’s potential success, despite those in attendance forming only a small, unrepresentative part of a movie’s eventual audience. In recent years such contradictory reactions include Green Lantern, whose early footage was initially well received and Avatar, with people who got a cheeky glimpse of James Cameron’s behemoth quick to dismiss it.

Even though they’re a minority and clearly susceptible to hype, these fan-boys wield a lot of power. It was the reaction to a test-reel at Sdcc that led to Disney going ahead with Tron: Legacy, a film with little appeal outside of die-hards who remembered the 1982 cult original. Thanks to the internet super-fans who were previously confined by »

Pierce Brosnan to star in the thriller, I.T.

26 August 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Pierce Brosnan's set to play a publisher terrorised by his computer specialist in the forthcoming thriller, I.T...

Post-Bond, Pierce Brosnan's continued to appear in a broad range of roles, and, if anything, he's becoming ever more prolific as the years go by. This year sees him appear in no fewer than three movies: A Long Way Down, How To Make Love Like An Englishman and action thriller The November Man, which is out today in the Us.

Brosnan has another thriller lined up, it's recently been announced. It's called I.T., and it's written by James Cameron's old colleague William Wisher, who most famously wrote Terminator 2. The movie's about a publisher who's menaced by his It consultant, who uses his technical wizardry to torment Brosnan and ruin his reputation.

Naturally, Brosnan will play the publisher, but word is that the computer guy hasn't been cast yet. If they could hire Richard Ayoade, »

Steven Quale interview: Into The Storm, Final Destination 5

26 August 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Steven Quale talks to us about his latest film Into The Storm, working on James Cameron's The Abyss, bad weather and more...

Steven Quale’s career seems to have been constantly submerged in water. Having worked with James Cameron back on The Abyss, their relationship has meant Quale’s involvement on multiple projects including Titanic and a co-director credit on the documentary Aliens Of The Deep. Quale’s solo feature directorial debut was on Final Destination 5, which wasted no time in plunging most of its cast into water, though they were mostly followed by rather heavy and deadly objects.

We caught up for a chat with Mr Quale to discuss his experiences of soaking actors in water and the challenges of filming a special effects heavy blockbuster, while managing to present a film with a new narrative perspective, as Into The Storm incorporates a first-person perspective into its story, »

Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

25 August 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”

Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars, »

Avatar Sequels Will Give Us Insight Into James Cameron’s World View

22 August 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that James Cameron needs some space to express his thoughts on human affairs to the world at large, and what better way to do that than to make three sequels to his hit film Avatar? Never mind that the films are going to cost 20th Century Fox a total of $1 billion, rounding out to more than $300 million per movie. James Cameron has a lot to say, and boy does he need to say it!

The Avatar sequels will be hitting cinemas in 2016, 2017, and 2018, and with them will arrive some much needed insight into James Cameron’s concern for the world and humanity. In a recent interview (via Collider), Cameron let it be known how he intends to approach these massively expensive sequels to a massively expensive original film:

James Cameron, 'Avatar' producer talk trilogy's 'long journey'

22 August 2014 5:04 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) It’s been a long, often quiet road back to Pandora — but for the filmmakers involved in the "Avatar" franchise, the journey has only just begun. Variety has a lengthy profile of 20th Century Fox’s Jim Gianopulos, which includes updates on the upcoming "Avatar" sequels from both Gianopulos and director James Cameron. “We know it’s going to be a long journey,” Gianopulos says of the three-film plan for more "Avatar" movies, with rumors pegging the production budget at $1 billion. “We know it’s not going to be cheap. We know it’s not going to be without new discoveries and new challenges in the process of producing something that is so beyond the normal form of filmmaking and technology, but what could be more exciting than that.” For his part, Cameron says the "Avatar" series contains everything he’s interested in as a storyteller. “There’s nothing »

James Cameron on ‘Avatar’ Sequels & Their Real-World Themes

21 August 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

James Cameron’s Avatar remains, after breaking the record five years ago, the highest-grossing movie of all time. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that the director has three sequels in pre-production (with a rumored collective budget of $1 billion) and is preparing to shoot them all back-to-back, with leads Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington reprising their roles as lovers and freedom fighters Jake Sully and Neytiri.

Whether the thought of Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 has you jumping for joy or just feeling very tired, the next few chapters of Cameron’s epic sci-fi saga are nonetheless going to be barrelling their way into theaters starting from December 2016. The first ...

Avatar Sequels Will Allow James Cameron to Express His Thoughts on the State of the World

21 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’re getting more Avatar in 2016, 2017 and 2018, so a few months of no Avatar talk is no big deal, but if Avatar 2 really is going into production later this year as James Cameron said about a year ago or even in early 2015 as Zoe Saldana recently suggested, news is bound to start picking up. The last update came in early June and revealed that Sigourney Weaver was set to return for all three new films and now Cameron is speaking up about the timeline of those films and about his confidence in the stories that they’ll tell.  Hit the jump for more on the Avatar sequels. In a Variety piece about the challenges Twentieth Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos is facing, there’s a good deal of talk about the studio’s ambitious plans for the next three Avatar films.  Apparently, they’re going to cost a whopping $1 billion, »

James Cameron 'Believes' in the Stories of the Avatar Sequels More Every Day

Since then we've had a few updates including returning cast members and a time table for the production, and even though we're still over two years from the release of the first film, director James Cameron has come forward to hype them up a little more. »

Sigourney Weaver Doesn’t Want To Be An ‘Expendabelle’

21 August 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Easily one, if not the most iconic action heroine to grace the silver screen (sorry, Linda), it seems that Sigourney Weaver isn’t in a hurry to return to her action roots. When the first The Expendables film was announced people weren’t overly thrilled with the idea however once they saw how much fun the film was they soon changed their minds. The success led to two sequels and whilst the most recent film struggled at the box office (probably not helped by the family friendly 12A rating) it was still lovely to see all the big action heroes share screen time.

An all-female spin-off was announced a long time ago and is slowly heading for production next year the project has lost one of its most wanted actresses. Sigourney Weaver found herself the figurehead icon for the strong action heroine after James Cameron got his hands on her »

James Cameron's 'Avatar' Sequels To Address 'State of the World'

21 August 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fox's Jim Gianopulos will have you know that sequels aren't made because of the lack of original ideas in Hollywood, but rather due to the first film's success and appeal. Sequels, like the Avatar ones that James Cameron is working on, have a new story with new characters, and their goal is to "take (a sequel) to a place that restores its freshness and originality." That said, Cameron also had a few words to say about the upcoming Avatar sequels and their subject matter.

Cameron told Variety that there's a lot more story left to tell in the Avatar franchise. He also mentioned that the films will deal with the state of the world and human affairs.

“There’s nothing I need to say as an artist about the state of the world and human affairs that I can’t do through the lens of the ‘Avatar’ universe,” he says. »

Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez on Mickey Rourke, 3D, and a Third 'Sin City'

21 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Back when the first "Sin City" was released in 2005, the idea of doing a 1:1 translation of a graphic novel for the big screen was so outside the box that it bordered on lunacy. But that's just what Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker behind "Desperado" and "Spy Kids," did when adapting Frank Miller's hard-boiled graphic novel "Sin City."

Instead of appropriating the look and feel of the comic book, he just Xeroxed it. It was still black-and-white, with flashes of color, and the actors he chose (among them, Mickey Rourke as the mountainous bad-ass Marv, and Jessica Alba as damsel-in-distress Nancy) were so uncannily close to their comic book equivalents that they might as well have been inked and painted.

Rodriguez also made the generous decision to bring Miller on board as a screenwriter and co-director (something that the DGA frowned upon, leading to Rodriguez losing out on a number of high-profile studio gigs). Together, »
