28 December 2010 2:42 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Let’s be honest – Some had a great 2010 and some had a year that just sucked. New stars, new formats, new judges brought their own rewards to Andrew Garfield, 3D and “American Idols” – not always with the same stellar results. If you were Russell Crowe, 2010 won’t be leaving the same jump in your step it did for Roman Polanski or Netflix … in our 10 of 2010, TheWrap’s best and brightest show you why. 1.

Choose The 1998 Academy Award Winners!

23 December 2010 6:30 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I love that a heated discussion over Titanic’s infamous Oscar sweep of 1998 has already begun over at Laurent’s excellent retrospective. I guess it’s just the nature of this particular film. There is something about Titanic that hits a raw nerve in people and they feel a need to defend/criticize it so passionately.

As it happens, I fall in the ‘unconditional love’ category and I’m not afraid to admit it. To this day I have a passion for Titanic, a film that so perfectly matches what a glorious, spellbinding, big spectacle romance against an historic backdrop should be, and those films are so rare, especially when they are made with such precise and meticulous detail from James Cameron.

We shouldn’t be embarrassed over how much we loved Titanic in the 90′s. We should embrace it. So as our third ‘Choose The Winners’ article, we are »

Retrospective: Oscars 1998

23 December 2010 8:21 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Alfred Hitchcock famously quipped that the three things you need to make a good film are a “good script, a good script and a good script.” In February 1998 however the Academy voters decided to ignore these pearls of wisdom, much like they ignored the achievements of Hitchcock himself, when they chose to reward Titanic with a Best Picture win despite the film lacking a screenplay nomination.

This was the first time this had transpired in over thirty years and pretty much confirmed the idea that Titanic was being praised as a spectacle even though it has been proven time and time again that any spectacle without the benefit of good storytelling is only impressive until the next spectacle comes along. L.A. Confidential on the other hand which is as fresh and watachable in 2010 as it was thirteen years ago compliments the quote that “good storytelling never goes out of fashion. »

Philip Noyce Won’t Direct “Salt” Sequel

23 December 2010 1:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Opinion seems to be divided on Salt. Many critics were very positive about it, though the movie going public seemed to be a little more mixed in their views.

It is possibly a little premature to be planning for a sequel, though the film did gross some $290m worldwide, so it seems likely. Either way, Philip Noyce, who directed Salt will not be back for a sequel.

Talking to Moviehole about his work on the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release, Noyce said:-

“Those 3 [alternate] Blu-ray cuts [of the film] represent just about everything I have to offer on Evelyn Salt. If there ever is a sequel, better its directed by someone with a completely fresh take on what I believe could be a totally entertaining and complex series of stories.”

He also took the time to spill the beans on what he has got on his mind instead of returning to Evelyn Salt:-

Peter Weir unlikely to return for a Master and Commander sequel

22 December 2010 2:38 AM, PST | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

Apparently eight nominations, two Oscars, and a $212 million worldwide gross still can’t entice former director Peter Weir to take on a second installment of Master and Commander. Russell Crowe recently urged his Twitter fans to email 20th Century Fox with a plea to get the ball rolling on a sequel, but in a recent [...] »

Peter Weir Says He’s Unlikely to Direct ‘Master and Commander 2′

21 December 2010 5:10 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Big sigh, fans. Master and Commander 2 has suffered another blow to its production boat today, as director of the first movie, Peter Weir told Digital Spy, there’s not much chance of him returning.

Russell Crowe, who starred as Captain Jack Aubrey in the original, recently pleaded with his twitter fans to contact Fox man, Tom Rothman, to get the ball rolling on the sequel, but Weir said he was “unlikely” to return to the story, despite the success of the first (it won two Oscars and received eight nominations back in 2003).

“I tend to like to do one film of a type and then move to something else, [...] That was a fascinating experience, but do I need to do it twice? I don’t think so.”

Who Will Direct Iron Man 3?

21 December 2010 5:01 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

So Jon Favreau has bailed on Iron Man 3 to the surprise of absolutely no-one and he’ll spend the next couple of years re-tracing his childhood routes hanging around with Mickey, Goofy, Pluto and the gang at Disney. Basically, he will be transforming himself into the biggest 44 year old kid by taking on the dream job of helming a Magic Kingdom film, an adventure movie that’s literally set in a Disneyland Theme Park where the rides and characters come to life!

What he leaves behind at Marvel is of course their marquee character, Iron Man. The character that gave Marvel a film franchise, a franchise that gave Marvel a production company and proved that they might just get away with their audacious plans for an unprecedented cinematic comic book continuity that stretches over half a dozen films in a decade, with the promise of further expansion if the »

Peter Weir Says It's Not Likely He'd Return For A Master And Commander 2

21 December 2010 12:44 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When The Way Back is released next month, it will officially mark the return of Australian filmmaker Peter Weir. Absent on the film scene for the last seven years, the director hasn't made a movie since 2003's Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Though not the financial smash that the studio was hoping for, the film did earn eight Academy Award nominations, two wins and a legion of fans. Earlier this month, the film's star, Russell Crowe, took to his Twitter account and told fans that if they wanted a sequel, they should contact 20th Century Fox, and the response was massive. But would Weir want to come back for another film? Apparently not. Digital Spy recently spoke with Weir and the subject of Master and Commander came up. When asked if he would have any interest in making a sequel, the filmmakers response was to say »

The Way Back review

21 December 2010 10:42 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Seven years after directing Russell Crowe in Master and Commander, acclaimed director Peter Weir (The Truman Show) has retaken his place behind the camera for a dramatic journey of survival from within the Soviet Union's iron curtain.

Co-written with executive producer Keith Clarke, The Way Back, loosely based on a prominent memoir by Slavomir Rawicz, sketches the escape from a Siberian gulag by a gang of prisoners under the cover of a blizzard. The snow masks not only their disappearance, but also the personal wounds they each carrying courtesy of Communist authorities under Stalin’s Reign of Terror.

Led by kind-hearted former cavalry officer Janusz (Jim Sturgess), the motley gang includes his fellow Poles Tamasz (Alexandru Potocean) and Kazik (Sebastian Urzendowsky), the American Mr. Smith (Ed Harris), the Latvian Voss (Gustaf Skarsgård), and the comedian of the group, Zoran (Dragos Bucur). Tagging along, knife firmly in hand, is the murderous, »

Phillip Noyce Says He Won’t Direct Salt 2

21 December 2010 4:35 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I imagine the now probable Salt franchise is to Angelina Jolie what the Mission Impossible series is to Tom Cruise. Just like when Cruise gets a little bored with the movie offers that come his way and maybe his more risque choices don’t get the interest he might have hoped, he can make a few phone calls and convince Paramount to pull the trigger on another Ethan Hunt adventure to get him back into the blockbuster spotlight.

And because of Salt’s near $300 million worldwide total (including breaking even domestically), Sony are likely to allow Jolie the same power. Because of this, we don’t have any idea as to when we might see a sequel to Salt.

Angelina Jolie might decide she wants to make one next summer, or not for three to four years. Whenever the time does come though, director Phillip Noyce claims he won’t »

Will Smith and Mark Wahlberg Offered $1 Million to Box Each Other

21 December 2010 3:47 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

The Hollywood Boxing Federation has offered Will Smith and Mark Wahlberg $1 million each to box each other in three one-minute matches on February 26th in Las Vegas. The idea is to have actors who played Muhammad Ali and Micky Ward face off. "This will be a great opportunity for both stars to fight in the Super Bowl of Hollywood boxing and to donate millions to their favorite charities," said Hbf. "We don't think these two are going to rip each others heads off. We're just hoping they get into the ring and have a little fun duking it out." Between the two, I would have to say that Wahlberg would win considering that he trained for "The Fighter" for four years and wrapped filming only a year ago. Smith, meanwhile, hasn't boxed seriously for nine years. A better fight would definitely be Russell Crowe vs Uwe Boll. »

‘Salt’ May Get a Sequel, But Phillip Noyce Will Not Direct It

20 December 2010 8:55 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Angelina Jolie thriller Salt may have come and gone in the minds of some viewers. -- neither of Jolie's big films this year seemed to get much traction -- but with a nearly $300 million worldwide take, the film is hardly a flop. Once marketing and everything else is factored in, the $110m film might be just breaking even, but that's before DVD and all other ancillary revenue streams flow in. So, it is not unreasonable to expect a sequel. In fact, back in August we heard that a sequel might be in the offing [1]. Writer Kurt Wimmer had ideas about how to move forward, Angelina Jolie was reportedly ready to think about another one, and director Phillip Noyce was said to be interested in another chapter. But now he's not. The director told Moviehole, Those 3 [alternate] Blu-ray cuts [of the film] represent just about everything I have to offer on Everlyn Salt... If there ever is a sequel, »

Will Smith And Mark Wahlberg Offered $1 Million To Box In Las Vegas: Which Other Actors Could Duke It Out?

20 December 2010 2:28 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

How much would you pay to see Muhammad Ali Will Smith face off against Micky Ward Mark Wahlberg in the boxing ring? Well, apparently the Hollywood Boxing Federation is willing to pay each $1 million to face off in Las Vegas in three one-minute matches. Of course, Wahlberg has already said he dove face-first into a giant pile of cookies after training for "The Fighter" for four years, and it's been nine years since Smith finished training for "Ali," but these are all minor details.

Damon Feldman, CEO of Hollywood Boxing Federation, explained to RadarOnline that "this will be a great opportunity for both stars to fight in the Superbowl of Hollywood boxing and to donate millions to their favorite charities... Come on, I really think that this would be a huge event and great way for them to donate to their favorite charities." The offer went out today.

Phil Noyce Opts Out Of "Salt" Sequel

20 December 2010 2:58 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Acclaimed Aussie filmmaker Phillip Noyce returned to cinemas this past Summer with the Angelina Jolie spy thriller "Salt". He now tells Moviehole that if a sequel is going to be made, he won't be involved:

"Those three [alternate] Blu-ray cuts [of the film] represent just about everything I have to offer on Evelyn Salt. If there ever is a sequel, better its directed by someone with a completely fresh take on what I believe could be a totally entertaining and complex series of stories" says Noyce.

The director is now turning his attention to other projects, one of them being Relativity's romantic drama "Timeless" which Bill Kelly ("Enchanted") is writing and Sunil Perkash is producing.

Also "Atonement" scribe Christopher Hampton is currently in negotiations to rework the script for Noyce's long-gestating passion project - an adaptation of Tim Winton's "Dirt Music" which Russell Crowe is still attached to star in. »

2010's kick-ass screen heroines

Plus! The year's most unlikely couples, and crunchiest action sequences

Hit Girl from Kick Ass

Putting the cuteness back into screen violence, Chloe Moretz's 11-year-old hellcat could have skewered The Expendables, The A-Team, The Losers, The Takers and all the other man-meat thrown at us this year into one unsavoury testosterone kebab before the school bus picked her up. Sweet, foul-mouthed and dangerously psychotic, she's the daughter Quentin Tarantino never had, the Christian right's worst nightmare since The Exorcist and the fancy dress costume parents really shouldn't contemplate.

Evelyn Salt

She might have the physique of a malnourished sparrow, but Angelina Jolie's ambiguous rogue agent somehow demolished all pretenders to pick up the Bourne baton. Her role was originally meant for Tom Cruise, but all it took was a nasty Chinese burn from Angelina and he handed it over. And you've got to say, she looked the part, »

The gloves are on again for Eminem and boxing movie mania

16 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Southpaw, The Fighter, Real Steel ... in these troubled times we can take comfort in a raft of films about battling underdogs

It shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody that Eminem is making another film – after making such a splash in 8 Mile eight years ago he's been soundly overtaken in the acting rapper stakes by everyone from Ludacris to Common to Lil Bow Wow – and nor should it be a surprise that he's got his eyes on a boxing film. As reported yesterday, Eminem's comeback vehicle will be Southpaw, the story of a boxer trying to fight his way back to glory after the world stops believing in him.

It isn't a surprise for a couple of reasons. First is Eminem himself. This is clearly a genre that he has great affection for – 8 Mile was basically a boxing movie where all the fighting just happened to be replaced with scenes »
