Ben-Hur remake suffers grim weekend at the Us box office

22 August 2016 12:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 22, 2016

The $100m Ben-Hur remake didn't have a great weekend in the Us, with a meagre take of just over $11m...

Chariot Races. Big wooden ships rowed across stormy seas by topless men. Morgan Freeman in voluminous dreadlocks. To quote Russell Crowe in Gladiator, "Are you not entertained?" 

If the opening weekend for Timur Bekmambetov's glossy remake of Ben-Hur is anything to go by, the answer appears to be a resounding "Not really, no." The fifth in a string of adaptations of Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ by Lew Wallace, the epic action drama made a rather dismal $11.35m over the weekend according to Box Office Mojo - which isn't great news, considering the film's estimated $100m budget. 

In a late summer line-up comprising such movies as bawdy foodstuff comedy Sausage Party, comedy-drama War Dogs and Laika's animated film Kubo And The Two Strings, Ben-Hur had »

A Lesson of the ‘Ben-Hur’ Debacle: Movie Stars Still Matter

20 August 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Up until recently, when a movie turned out to be a major bomb — not just a financial failure but a symbol of waste, a legend, a stink bomb — there was usually a movie star’s name imprinted on it. The star became part of the movie’s infamy, and he also took on some of the blame. Just think of a folly like “Ishtar” (1987), in which the combined star wallop of Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty couldn’t add up to a hill of beans in the desert, or “Battlefield Earth” (2000), which proved that John Travolta in the middle of the Travoltassance couldn’t sell a sci-fi epic that was really an obsequious vanity project. “Heaven’s Gate,” the movie that brought down a movie studio, was the exception that proved the rule: No one really thought of it as a Kris Kristofferson film, but that’s because there was »

‘The Birth of A Nation’: What Fox Searchlight Faces As It Plows Forward With A Tainted Oscar Frontrunner

18 August 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As Sundance moments go, the reception for “The Birth of a Nation” was unheard of. The audience gave writer-director-actor Nate Parker a standing ovation before the film began. Now his movie is facing another kind of reception, also unheard of: He must promote the movie while being shadowed by his 1999 rape trial, and news that the accuser committed suicide in 2012.

There are no real precedents for Parker’s situation.

Film Review: ‘Ben-Hur’

17 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When you watch the 1959 “Ben-Hur,” a studio classic so big and stodgy and literal that even the dialogue seems square-jawed, there’s something that tugs you right through the endless talk about high ideals and the birth of Christianity — and no, it’s not just the promise that after three hours, you’re going to get to see the chariot race to end all chariot races. It’s the presence of an actor who’s like an oak tree among twigs. As the title stud-slave, Charlton Heston projects a strength that’s brawny but internal — sturdiness resolved into muscle. Even his soul is clenched. He’s like a Hollywood glamour god sculpted by Michelangelo. You’d think that this sort of gladiatorial hero worship would have gone out of style, but, of course, you’d be wrong. It’s alive and kicking in a movie like “Gladiator,” where Russell Crowe »

Honest Trailer For ‘Gladiator,’ Featuring Russell Crowe’s One Note Performance That Won Him An Oscar

Gladiator” is the first of five movies Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott would make together and is easily the most successful. Given how fraught the production was, it’s a miracle the actor and director collaborated again. As Crowe has recounted multiple times over the years, filming essentially began with a scrap of a script, forcing […]

Film Review: ‘Imperium’

15 August 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“You seem pretty mature for a skinhead,” observes a white supremacist leader of Daniel Radcliffe in “Imperium,” in which the former Boy Who Lived plays a nebbishy, classical-music-loving FBI agent under deep cover in the neo-Nazi underworld. It’s a welcome acknowledgement of the unlikeliness of the casting, which turns out to be one of the film’s chief strengths. While maturing male actors from Ryan Gosling to Russell Crowe and Edward Norton have strapped on boots and braces as a sort of early proof of the toughness and danger of which they’re capable, Radcliffe’s performance asks how someone danger-averse and not-at-all tough would ingratiate himself into that dark milieu.

Unlike “The Believer,” “Romper Stomper,” or “American History X,” “Imperium” — directed and scripted by first-timer Daniel Ragussis —  is not principally concerned with exploring the political or psychological dysfunction that drives young men to join violent hate-groups. Indeed, though »

Nate Parker: Why He’s Speaking Out Against 1999 Rape Accusations Before ‘Birth of a Nation’ Awards Cycle

12 August 2016 2:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nate Parker’s Cinderella story took a decidedly darker turn Friday morning with a Deadline piece in which the filmmaker behind “The Birth of a Nation” gave an extended interview acknowledging his role in a 1999 rape charge, when he was a student at Penn State. 

You can read the details here, but the upshot is he and “The Birth of a Nation” co-writer Jean McGianni Celestin had sex with a fellow student — an incident that, they said, was consensual; she says she was passed-out drunk and unable to give consent. The case went to trial, and Parker was acquitted while Celestin’s conviction was overturned on appeal.

This comes the morning after Parker received the Vanguard Award at the Sundance Institute’s Night Before Next benefit, where he also announced the Institute’s launch of The Birth of a Nation Fellowship for 18-to-24-year-old filmmakers who participate in the Institute’s Ignite program. »

Having finished up shooting in London, the cast and crew of The Mummy are now on location in Namibia for the next stage of the shoot on Universal’s Monster universe-launching reboot, and to mark the occasion Annabelle Wallis has shared a photo of herself and co-stars Tom Cruise, Jake Johnson and Courtney B.

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and “Star Trek Beyond”) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

Chris Evans wanted for big screen adaptation of BBC series Jekyll

30 July 2016 11:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Lionsgate is looking to cast Chris Evans in the lead role of Tom Jackman in a big screen adaptation of the BBC One series Jekyll, which is being produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman.

The six-part Jekyll was written by Steven Moffat and aired on BBC One in 2007; described as a sequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, it started James Nesbitt as Jackman, a modern-day descendant of Dr. Jekyll, who finds himself transforming into a version of the sinister Mr. Hyde.

Jekyll isn’t the only Jekyll and Hyde related project on the horizon, with Russell Crowe set to take on the dual roles in Universal Pictures Monster universe, beginning with a role in next year’s Tom Cruise-headlined The Mummy.

The Mummy Cast Photo Finds Tom Cruise In Namibia

30 July 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s a surprising amount riding on Universal’s reboot of The Mummy, a consequence of the potentially never-ending shared-universe craze Hollywood has locked itself into. A reintroduction to the iconic movie villain, the blockbuster will also set up a world that can comfortably fit all manner of other famed monsters, from the Creature from the Black Lagoon to the Invisible Man.

Luckily, the actors in tow for this pic, to be directed by Alex Kurtzman, seem to be having a blast despite the pressure. A new photo tweeted from lead actress Annabelle Wallis’  account finds her alongside Tom Cruise, Jake Johnson and Courtney B. Vance, all of whom are taking on lead roles in the film opposite Sofia Boutella’s wrapped menace. All of them are clad in fatigues while on set in Namibia, Africa, a handy reminder that the movie is taking a more grounded, modern approach to its oft-campy subject. »
