‘Furious 7’ Takes in $170 Million Overseas, Heads for $1 Billion From Abroad Alone

31 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Furious 7” took in an eye-popping $170 million at the overseas box office this weekend, and the Universal action epic now has a very good shot at passing $1 billion at the overseas box office alone. Only two other films, both from James Cameron, have managed the feat before, “Avatar” and “Titanic.” On Sunday, Universal reported a $93 million second weekend in China that swelled its total there after eight days to $250.5 million. That puts it behind only “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which took in $301 million last year, as the top-grossing film ever in that country. The action epic starring Vin Diesel »

Impressive Action Buoys The Dead Lands [Review]

17 April 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

When James Cameron starts toting something, people tend to pay attention (he is, after all, the self proclaimed king of the world) so when marketing for The Dead Lands, a movie that appeared to be little more than a Maori version of Apocalypto, included words of praise from Cameron, I figured what the heck. It can't be that bad if Cameron likes it...

A double narrative tale of self discovery, The Dead Lands opens with warring Maori tribes coming together in apparent reconciliation but the visiting tribe never intended friendship and in the cover of night, they attack the village, killing the chieftain and most of the tribe's men leaving only the chieftain's teenage son to seek revenge on behalf of his people. But he's just a boy who doesn't really know what he's d [Continued ...] »

Review: The Dead Lands

17 April 2015 3:44 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Plot: A young Maori tribesman must survive in the New Zealand jungle after his entire tribe is slaughtered. Review: The Dead Lands comes with some intriguing advance word-of-mouth, most of it drummed up by the publicity department: Evidently, James Cameron's a big fan and gives it his endorsement, while the project is also fond of touting its "ancient form of martial arts" called Mau Rakau, which was apparently practiced by New Zealand's Maori tribes back »

A Most Violent Year Blu-ray Review

16 April 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Although it is very light on action and violence, A Most Violent Year features powerful performances in a slow-burning drama about a good man trying to make an honest living while everyone around him seems to be happy to cut corners anyway they can. Written and directed by J. C. Chandor (Margin Call and All Is Lost), the film features an incredible ensemble cast including Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain, David Oyelowo, Alessandro Nivola, Albert Brooks, and Elyes Gabel. Set in 1981’s New York City, the film follows Abel Morales (Isaac), the owner of the small Standard Oil, a heating oil […] »

‘Avatar’ Plagiarism Lawsuit Dismissal Upheld by Appeals Court

15 April 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

James Cameron has won another legal victory in the claims that he boosted the “Avatar” story from others. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed on Wednesday the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by special effects artist Gerald Morawski, a suit that was initially dismissed in February 2013. While Cameron’s producing partner, Jon Landau, thanked the appeals court for its decision, he also lamented about the plaintiffs who “seek to take credit for the success of our film.” Also Read: James Cameron’s First ‘Avatar’ Sequel Pushed Back to 2017 “While it is unfortunate that a myriad of fortune hunting plaintiffs seek to take. »

Watch: New ‘Terminator Genisys’ Trailer

13 April 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Anyone who knows me for more than a couple of days will come to find that I am a big fan of the two Terminator films. That’s right, the two Terminator films. For me the series ended the same time that Linda Hamilton and James Cameron left, Terminator Salvation was a muddled mess and don’t get me started on the third outing (seriously we’d be here forever). I’ve obviously been very dubious about the latest attempt to flog money from a dead franchise and it’s not looking good.

A while back we were shown a first trailer and that got my spider senses tingling, and not in the good way. Now a second trailer has arrived and I’m sorry to say Terminator fans it seems that our fond memories are the real target of termination. Watch it below (if you must) and be warned it’s spoiler heavy. »

“I never make a movie unless I feel that this film will bring me happiness” – Vidhu Vinod Chopra

9 April 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Vidhu Vinod Chopra has produced some of the best in Bollywood from 1989’s Parinda, to 2003’s Munna Bhai Mbbs and the follow up Lage Raho Munna Bhai in 2005, Parineeta in 2005, 3 Idiots in 2009 and last year’s big hit Pk. After making some brilliant films in Bollywood, the director decided to pursue a long held dream of making a film in Hollywood. What is even cooler is that he is just not producing the film, he also wrote and directed the thriller titled Broken Horses. The film stars a huge cast of Hollywood stars including Vincent D’Onofrio (The Judge, Full Metal Jacket, Men In Black), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Alpha Dog) and Chris Marquette (Alpha Dog, The Girl Next Door) along with Spanish actress, Maria Valverde (Exodus), Thomas Jane, and Sean Patrick Flannery.

Broken Horses is about the bonds of brotherhood, the laws of loyalty, and the futility of violence. »

The 82nd Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 April 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

As I mentioned last time out, this series has officially returned. Yes, once again I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent (or now recent-ish) Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be attempting to do just that, time will still tell if it’s something that gets stuck with or not. Again, if nothing else, this continues to give you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright then, here goes nothing folks…behold my »

Box Office: Can 'Age of Ultron' Beat 'Avengers' $207M Debut?

9 April 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's The Avengers had the highest domestic weekend opening at the box office in cinematic history with $207.4 million. So, of course all eyes are on Avengers: Age of Ultron, with many eager to see if it can beat it's predecessor and score a new box office record. As of now, Avengers 2 is tracking just a little better than the original did this same time back in 2012. The new film opens May 1, and has all of the main heroes from the original adventure returning, including Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Nick Fury. We even get a few new costumed crime fighters with Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Vision joining the team.

Avengers: Age of Ultron will partake in advanced Thursday night previews on April 30, starting at 7pm. Advanced ticket sales for these shows began early last month, with the movie said to be 'significantly' outselling the first. »

Review: Invaders From Mars

8 April 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The downfall that faced Tobe Hooper's creative relationship with The Cannon Group in the eighties wasn't much different than the fate of George A. Romero's collaboration with Orion Pictures. After leaving an iconic legacy for horror in the previous decade, Hooper had a reputation to live up to when he made a three picture deal with Golan and Globus that resulted in the ambitious, but entertaining failure Lifeforce, the misunderstood parody The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and the family friendly remake of Invaders From Mars that helped sink Cannon out of Hollywood forever.

When considering the talent involved in this production that included screenwriting duties from Dan O' Bannon and special effects from legends like Stan Winston (who was simultaneously working on James Cameron's Aliens), John Dykstra (Star Wars) and Alec Gillis, this quite frankly should have been an exhilarating fantasy spectacle at the very least.

Exclusive: Over a Dozen Brutal Images from The Dead Lands

7 April 2015 2:49 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I had not yet heard of The Dead Lands when these exclusive images landed in my inbox but, after checking out the trailer, I'm very much onboard. James Cameron describes the film thusly, "A powerful and primal coming of age story that's an absolute adrenaline rush, The Dead Lands is far more than just a great action movie  --  it's great cinema.” I haven't seen the entire movie by any means, but based on these stills and the very Nsfw trailer, I have a feeling he's onto something. Check out The Dead Lands images and trailer below. The film was written by Glenn Standring and directed by Toa Fraser. It stars James Rolleston, Lawrence Makoare, Te Kohe Tuhaka, Xavier Horan, George Henare, Raukura Turei and Rena Owen. Magnet releases The Dead Lands in theaters and on VOD on April 17th. Here's the official synopsis: Hongi (James Rolleston) - a Maori »

Listen: Jessica Chastain Talks Working With Terrence Malick, Kathryn Bigelow & More In 1-Hour Conversation

7 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jessica Chastain seemingly became famous overnight. While she shot “Wild Salome” with Al Pacino earlier (the movie still hasn’t come out stateside, but you can read our review here), 2011 marked The Year Of Chastain. Suddenly, she had a string of movies coming to cinemas: Terrence Malick’s “The Tree Of Life,” Jeff Nichols’ “Take Shelter,” Ralph Fiennes’ directorial effort “Coriolanus,” John Madden's "The Debt," and, of course, “The Help,” which earned the actress her first Academy Award nomination. She was everywhere, and in high demand, soon garnering work and acclaim in films by Christopher Nolan, Kathryn Bigelow, John Hillcoat, J. C. Chandor, and more (later this year she has films coming out by Guillermo del Toro and Ridley Scott).

Watch: New International Trailer, Images & Poster For Wim Wenders’ ‘Every Thing Will Be Fine’ With James Franco

7 April 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"I did work a lot in 3D and I still believe in it, but I'm sort of shocked how unexplored it still is," Wim Wenders told us in a recent interview. Indeed, the trailblazing filmmaker latched onto the format even before James Cameron made it de rigeur in Hollywood thanks to "Avatar," but Wenders believes the technique has barely been exploited. Perhaps he'll prove that three-dimensions can work just as well for drama as it can for explosions via his upcoming drama "Every Thing Will Be Fine." Starring James FrancoRachel McAdams, Charlotte Gainbsourg and Marie-Josée Croze, the story follows how aftermath of a tragedy affects the lives of those involved over the years. The film premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, where our critic called it a "slow-ass" movie that never "cracks a joke and potentially melodramatic moments (a fairground ride collapse, the initial accident, a. »

Con Air: the 90s action film that remains unmatched

7 April 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's our tribute to one of the best action movies ever made: a story of Nicolas Cage, a plane and a toy bunny...

"Break out the fine china, chill the lemonade, tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree. Cos this boy's coming home to his ladies. Coming home forever."

Action cinema changed in 1999. The release of The Matrix unleashed a torrent of imitators, but also altered fundamentally the editing of movies in the genre. This came with a price. Action sequences became harder to follow. Character was relegated. The old style idea of pitting a movie star against some peril in extraordinary circumstances was seemingly less tempting. The Matrix had started something.

Well, that, or everyone just watched Con Air, and figured they couldn't top it. Because in truth, how could they? One of the most quotable, enjoyable and wildly entertaining blockbusters of the 1990s, I can't think »

"It Sucked": Arnold Schwarzenegger Makes His Feelings About 'Terminator Salvation' Crystal Clear

6 April 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Let's face it, once James Cameron left "The Terminator" franchise, the series was never the same. "Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines" was a forgettable retread, while the non-Arnie "Terminator Salvation" is mostly remembered for that time Christian Bale lost his shit on set, and also for not being very good. Those two movies are a big reason why there is much trepidation about "Terminator Genisys," even with Ahnuld returning and Cameron being somewhat tangentially involved in conversations about the project early on (as far back as when Justin Lin was going to direct, plus he also explained last fall how a Terminator could age). But what does the actor who has lived and breathed the franchise for decades think about each installment? Well, he made his feelings very clear on a recent "Good Morning America" segment. "I think the three that I was in, they all had their little personalities and interesting storylines, »

DVD Review – Predestination (2014)

6 April 2015 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Predestination, 2014.

Directed by The Spierig Brothers.

Starring Ethan Hawke, Sarah Snook, Madeleine West, Christopher Kirby, Christopher Sommers and Noah Taylor.

Synopsis:

The life of a time-travelling Temporal Agent. On his final assignment, he must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.

Time is linear and moves forward, so says the “science”. Most recently, it was Christopher Nolan and his black-holes, tesseract’s and singularities that have brought time and destiny to the big screen as he examined how we perceive time and its ever-ticking destination. With a slightly different take on the time, destiny and the paradoxes that come with the manipulations of time are directors The Spierig Brothers with Predestination, one of the bravest, craziest but supremely entertaining sci-fi’ers of recent years.

Predestination is a film that takes many chances, enjoying its almost shackle-free production from the Hollywood system who may have thought different to a film about time paradoxes, »
