Angelina Jolie developing Catherine The Great, Bride Of Frankenstein still possible

22 February 2017 11:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Feb 23, 2017

Angelina Jolie is developing two films at Universal, including a Catherine The Great movie. Bride Of Frankenstein could still happen too.

Angelina Jolie arguably remains one of the most bankable movie stars in Hollywood. Granted, the last time she appeared in a live-action film was for 2015’s underperformer, By the Sea. But prior to that misfire, the combination of her marquee name and Disney nostalgia propelled Maleficent to a $759 million gross during the summer of 2014. And along with a purported Maleficent 2, many producers have sought the star to reprise roles in potential blockbusters like a now dormant Wanted 2 and the abandoned Salt 2.

However, personal life aside, she has kept a low profile in Hollywood, electing instead to direct a movie set and produced in Cambodia (Netflix has since purchased the international rights). Apparently things are changing at Universal Pictures, however, since THR is reporting she has »

Van Helsing reboot lands a new writer

Joseph Baxter Feb 23, 2017

Universal Monsters shared-universe movie Van Helsing will be written by Wrath Of The Titans scribe Dan Mazeau

Universal Studios’ ambitious shared-universe films featuring classic movie monsters manifests this summer with another reboot of The Mummy. That's set to star Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Russell Crowe. Now, though, we learn of the planned remake of Van Helsing, that has landed a new writer.

According to The Tracking Board, the script for Universal Monsters entry Van Helsing is now in the hands of writer Dan Mazeau. Mazeau, whose only major credited screenplay was the 2012 Greek myth series sequel Wrath Of The Titans, is in the process of rewriting the Van Helsing script after it was originally drafted by The Mummy writer Jon Spaihts (Passengers) and Eric Heisserer (Arrival).

Mazeau reportedly took on the Van Helsing script duty somewhere around last September after being part of the Universal writer’s room, »

First look images of Taron Egerton and Eve Hewson on set of Robin Hood

21 February 2017 6:11 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

As Taron Egerton suits up to rob the rich to give to the poor on the set of Robin Hood – which started filming in Dubrovnik, Croatia yesterday – a number of photos have emerged from the set showing some of the cast, including Egerton, in a jovial mood.

Related: Taron Egerton on his first animation, Sing

The tale of Robin Hood has been told time and time again on the big screen from the 2010 version starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, to 1991’s version with Kevin Costner and the 1938 outing with Errol Flynn. It’s an age-old story which never gets old and moves with the times to engage new audiences with the latest in the hottest names brought in to put bums on seats.

This latest version of the poor man’s hero is due for release in 2018 and has a number of actors to thrill a wide range of audience. »

The Walking Dead: season seven, episode 10 – New Best Friends

20 February 2017 2:55 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Rick makes like Russell Crowe in Gladiator by fighting for his life in a fetid arena. What does this portend? That we’ll see no more zombies or action for weeks, I bet

• Spoiler alert: this blog is published after The Walking Dead airs in the Us on Sundays. Do not read unless you have watched season seven episode 10, which airs in the UK on Fox on Mondays at 9pm.

The first thing you learn in Fighting Zombies 101 is to avoid their teeth. If you don’t, you risk being bitten and so inducted into their club with its limited lifestyle parameters. But what they don’t teach you is how to fight a walker in helmet and body armour covered with spiky blades. This was Rick’s difficulty after the woman with the unfortunate fringe pushed him into a junkyard pit and encouraged him to make like Russell Crowe in Gladiator. »

Tom Cruise's Mother Dead at 80

13 February 2017 12:45 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Tom Cruise's mother, Mary Lee South, has died.

South died peacefully in her sleep last week, after coping with health issues in recent years, Cruise's rep confirms to Et. She was given a memorial service at an undisclosed Church of Scientology this weekend.

She was 80 years old.

The 54-year-old actor and his three sisters -- Lee Ann Devette, Marian Henry and Cass Mapother -- were all in attendance at the memorial, People reports.

Et talked to Cruise at the Jack Reacher premiere in October, when he talked about his mother's unwavering belief in him.

Films that led to other films being cancelled

9 February 2017 2:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 15, 2017

Had Tomorrowland been a hit, we might have had a Tron sequel. We look at movies whose fate had a knock-on effect on other films...

You've probably heard of chaos theory and a thing called the butterfly effect - a concept where the flapping of an insect's wings in a London borough causes a shed to collapse somewhere in the Australian outback.  In other words, seemingly incidental events can have a knock-on effect on everything else - like that old board game, Mousetrap, where a ball falling into a bath caused a boot to kick a bucket, which eventually led to the cruel detainment of several rodents.

The concept applies even in the high-stakes, high-energy world of filmmaking, where the success of one type of movie can prompt rival studios to greenlight their own, »

David Stratton: A Cinematic Life review – a poignant portrait of a beloved cinephile

6 February 2017 3:32 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman and more salute Stratton in a film that fuses the critic’s surprisingly dramatic life with an Australian cinematic retrospective

For the first time in decades a star-studded Australian film arrives that David Stratton will certainly not critique: after all, it tells the story of his life. Or his Cinematic Life, as director Sally Aitken puts it in the title of her feature documentary, which supplements the void left by ABC TV’s At the Movies with a veritable Stratts-fest.

Linking the life of its semiretired presenter (still a reviewer for the Australian) with the story of how (and which) locally made movies have left a big impression on him, the film is a sweet ode to our national cinema and a moving portrait of the beloved avuncular cinephile. The stars come out in force to salute Stratton: a Nicole Kidman here, a Russell Crowe there, »

Damien Chazelle Wins DGA Award for ‘La La Land,’ Oscars Will Follow

4 February 2017 11:31 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The inevitable occurred Saturday night as Damien Chazelle accepted the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for “La La Land” from last year’s winner, A.G. Inarritu. The DGA winner is usually a pretty certain match with the Oscar for the Best Director — the winner has not gone on to take the Academy Award only seven times. (The most recent example: in 2012 non-Oscar directing nominee Ben Affleck won the DGA Award for “Argo,” while Ang Lee won the Oscar for “Life of Pi.”)

Chazelle beat fellow first-time DGA and Oscar nominees Barry Jenkins (presented by his charming trio of stars in $1.5 million “Moonlight”), Kenneth Lonergan (introduced by “Manchester By the Sea” star Casey Affleck) and Denis Villeneuve (tributed by Amy Adams of  “Arrival”).

New to Streaming: ‘Arrival,’ ‘A Separation,’ ‘The Edge of Seventeen,’ ‘The Love Witch,’ and More

3 February 2017 9:48 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

A Bigger Splash (Luca Guadagnino)

Despite a loose script that justifies little, Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up feature to his glorious melodrama I Am Love is a sweaty, kinetic, dangerously unpredictable ride of a film. One is frustrated by the final stroke of genius that never came, but boy was it fun to spend two hours inside such a whirlwind of desires, mind games, delirious sights and sounds. »

Super Bowl Ad Review: Coen Brothers Try to Rev Audiences for Mercedes

30 January 2017 11:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Joel and Ethan Coen have lured moviegoers to films ranging from “The Big Lebowski” to “No Country for Old Men.” Can they now direct football fans to blow tens of thousands of dollars on a new Mercedes?

That will be the challenge come Sunday, when a 30-second ad will air during Super Bowl Li featuring Peter Fonda, the auto manufacturer’s slick Amg roadster, and a gang of burly bikers listening to Steppenwolf’s “Born to be Wild.” The question, of course, will be if the Coens can make the kind of art that leads to commerce.

Based on the teaser made available online – a 60-second behemoth that will no doubt be ill-served by the editor’s knife when it is cut down to half that length – the answer may be “No.”  After spending time with the colorful denizens of the tavern (it’s called “Tiny’s,” by the way) it’s hard to figure out why »

Rihanna, Azealia Banks Publish Each Other’s Phone Numbers in Beef Over Trump

A social media feud between Rihanna and Azealia Banks led to what appears to be their phone numbers being posted online for all to see. Banks, a rapper who is no stranger to engaging in celebrity beefs (Zayn Malik, Russell Crowe and Sia have previously felt her wrath), was the first to drop Rihanna‘s number after the two began debating about President Donald Trump’s executive order to temporarily suspend immigration from seven Muslim majority nations. “Bombs away,” Azealia wrote on a now-deleted Instagram picture of Rihanna‘s contact card in her iPhone.

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast The Universal Monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man, More!)

27 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends get to play studio execs and cast talent for upcoming projects. We sort of take the same tact as the old Wizard Magazine features where we choose our dream picks for coveted roles without necessarily being tied down to realistic options. 

With the case of Universal's upcoming Cinematic Universe of Classic Monsters, we thankfully have a very wide palette to choose from since the studio has already secured some surprisingly high-profile talent. So that actually takes some of the "pie in the sky/fantasy" nature out of our picks, since it seems like they're able to get who ever they want to appear in these films.

So far, we've got The Mummy with stars like Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. Then there's Johnny Depp, who's signed on for The Invisible Man. The sky's the limit for these monster flicks, »

Ryan Gosling: From Mouseketeer and indie darling to Hollywood movie star

4 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sara Hemrajani on the rise of Ryan Gosling

La La Land, the award-tipped ode to musicals from Hollywood’s Golden Age, sees Ryan Gosling dance, sing, wax lyrical about jazz and woo Emma Stone’s aspiring actress in modern day Los Angeles. It’s a terrific performance and the 36-year-old seems to be a lock for one of the best actor Oscar nods. To top that off, he will be hitting the screens across the year in Terrence Malick’s Weightless and the eagerly anticipated Blade Runner sequel.

Showbusiness isn’t new to Gosling – he was a Mousekeeter (alongside pre-teen Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera) in The Mickey Mouse Club, and he played the title role in the Young Hercules series in the late 1990s. Gosling followed television with some smartly chosen indie features and, not too long after, he was primed for the big leagues as a major movie star. »

ComicMix Six: Box Office Democracy’s Top Six Movies of 2016

6. Captain America: Civil War – There are so many fantastic moments in Civil War.  The easy one is the fight at the airport where we finally get that big super hero battle we’ve seen in a thousand different comic books (and acted out with action figures at least that many times) put on the silver screen in all its glory.  The three-way fight at the end might be even better because it’s a crisp action beat full of emotion that is rare anywhere these days, and is honestly pretty uncommon even in print.  It’s not a perfect movie, but it might be the perfect application of fan service.  Every other Marvel movie has to either top this in terms of fan service (and they honestly probably shouldn’t try) or do something new and exciting.  The gauntlet has been thrown down (this is not an Infinity Gauntlet pun »

Christopher Schobert’s Top 10 Films of 2016

2 January 2017 6:52 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Ignore any suggestion that 2016 was not a fantastic year for cinema. Moments linger (the campfire dance in American Honey, the final encounter in Certain Women, the Tracy LettsLogan Lerman debate in Indignation, the first ten minutes of High-Rise, both “Camelot”-soundtracked sequences in Jackie, any scene that featured Ralph Fiennes in A Bigger Splash) and performances resonate (everyone in Moonlight, Emma Stone in La La Land, Kate McKinnon in Ghostbusters).

Choosing ten favorites and five honorable mentions is nasty business; I wish I could have included Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply, a ridiculously underrated film that does not deserve to be remembered as a flop. But it just missed the cut. (Also, I was unable to see Silence in time for end-of-year consideration.) What these fifteen films have in common is the ability to surprise, confound, and delight in equal measure. Let’s see 2017 top that.
