‘Deadpool’ Again Tops Disc Best-Seller Charts

27 May 2016 2:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The popularity of 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool” is continuing to carry over to home video, following the spoofy superhero actioner’s stellar $362.8 million haul at the domestic box office.

In its second week in stores, “Deadpool” again took No. 1 on the Npd VideoScan sales chart that tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, as well as the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, for the week ended May 22.

The top new disc release for the week, Lionsgate’s “Dirty Grandpa,” could muster only 25% of “Deadpool”’s second-week disc sales, coming in at No. 2 on both charts. The raunchy comedy starring Zac Efron and Robert De Niro earned just $35.6 million at the U.S. box office.

Walt Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” slipped a spot to No. 3 on both charts, followed by newcomer “The Witch,” a critically praised horror film from Lionsgate that earned $25.1 million at domestic theaters. »

Bluray Review: Death Walks Twice Collection

25 May 2016 3:43 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

As a die-hard horror-phile, I owe a mound of gratitude to Dario Argento’s Suspiria for single-handedly introducing me to the foreign horror film. Before sitting through that amalgamation of bright-colored visuals and slick murder sequences, I had no idea that horror films were even made outside the U.S.  Though the local mom and pop video houses and grocery stores spread around the area I was growing up in had some of them lining their shelves, I would have never known that they came from distant regions across the world. As a young teen living during the era of a very moral and conservative presidency, there was an unmistakable spark inside of me that had been lit after watching the original Friday the 13th that was yearning to become a bright, burning inferno. Growing up a very sheltered child, I attempted to find every book and periodical that would »

In Happier Cannes Times

24 May 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

on this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1941 Bob Dylan is born in Minnesota, splinters into seven people in front of Todd Haynes' eyes.

1949 Jim Broadbent is born so that we might have Harold Zidler in Moulin Rouge! the film he should have won the Oscar for on the night he actually won the Oscar. Funny how that happens sometimes.

1960 Kristin Scott Thomas is born. Years later she can drop a room temperature or bring it to a boil onscreen in about 2 seconds. We miss her soooo much.

1972 Superhero Glut Producer of the CW, Greg Berlanti, is born.

1991 Thelma & Louise drove into theaters. You've been reading our 25th anniversary retrospective right? Part 3 hits today and we're having a blast revisiting.

2009 The White Ribbon finally wins Michael Haneke the Palme d'Or at Cannes. It goes on to two Oscar nominations for Foreign Film and Cinematography and becomes Haneke's most successful film globally, »

Joe Pesci Passes Up Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, According To Reports

19 May 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Fox Searchlight’s acquisition of Nate Parker’s The Birth of a Nation was the story of Sundance, then one of the biggest deals emerging from the Croisette involved Martin Scorsese’s long-in-development mob drama The Irishman, after landing a $50 million dollar deal at Stx Entertainment.

Such a huge figure comes packing huge expectations though, and it’s little wonder Scorsese’s latest creative venture has garnered buzz, given old cohorts Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci (Goodfellas/Casino/Raging Bull) had been linked with key roles alongside Al Pacino.

It’s certainly a tantalizing trio, but The Hollywood Reporter reveals Joe Pesci is unlikely to put pen to paper, having all but retired from acting since last appearing in Taylor Hackford’s Love Ranch all the way back in 2010. Plus, in those intervening years, it’s understood that Scorsese hasn’t been the only director to offer Pesci a gig. »

Joe Pesci unlikely to appear in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman

19 May 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having finally reached a deal to bring The Irishman to the screen at Cannes after a fierce bidding war, Martin Scorsese’s plans for his long-gestating adaptation of Charles Brandt’s bestselling book I Heard You Paint Houses have suffered a setback, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that there’s a big question mark over the involvement of Joe Pesci.

According to the site, Pesci – who has not appeared on screen since 2010’s Love Ranch – has “repeatedly has told Scorsese no” with regards to appearing in the project, which will star both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. However, the article also states that the director “remains hopeful” that he can convince his Goodfellas star to come out of retirement for the movie.

The Irishman follows the “biggest mob hit in history” and will see De Niro as Frank Sheeran, who on his deathbed claimed to have killed Jimmy Hoffa, »

Martin Scorsese's Much Hyped New Mobster Movie Is Actually Happening, Here's What We Know

18 May 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You would think that when Martin Scorsese wants to make a mobster movie, studios would be lining up to throw money at him. You’d think that when that movie is going to star Robert De Niro, somebody would back a dump truck full of cash up to his doorstep and just start dumping it out on his porch. Yet, the (finally!) Academy Award-winning director has been trying to make The Irishman since 2010 and the concept has languished in development hell. However, a deal has finally been struck that will bring The Irishman to the screen, and this one could turn out to be Scorsese’s biggest movie ever. While The Irishman has been something that Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro have been trying to make happen for six years, it has been a high enough priority that the they’ve never let the idea die. »

'The Irishman': Will Joe Pesci Work With Martin Scorsese Again on New Mob Film?

18 May 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Without a doubt, Goodfellas ranks up there as one of the best mobster flicks ever to hit the big screens. With its engaging story, gritty realism, and incredibly off-kilter -- characters, it manages to hold up as an entertaining classic of cinema. Of course, the film was directed by filmmaking master Martin Scorsese, who has re-visited the mob film a few times since Goodfellas.

Scorsese is once again returning to the genre with the upcoming film The Irishman, which just locked down Stx as the movie's international distributor. The movie is written by Gangs Of New York writer Steve Zaillian, and is set to star Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino -- two more all-time greats.

One of the big questions, however, is whether or not Joe Pesci will be in the film. Pesci won an Oscar for his role in 1990s Goodfellas, but despite that, he's kept his number of roles in movies relatively low, »

Dirty Grandpa Blu-Ray Review

18 May 2016 12:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I have seen many films, some good, some bad, some mind-boggling in their awfulness. I can safely say though that no film has ever been delivered to me in a package that contained a condom, a pill bottle full of Tic-Tacs and an H&M bikini top. But when I received Dirty Grandpa, now on Blu-ray from Lionsgate, that little goodie bag came spilling out. Oh dear, I thought, gazing upon the strange pile of trinkets. This does not bode well.

Dirty Grandpa is one of those films that makes one ask some age old questions, like “Why?” and “Did they read the script?” and “How much is Robert De Niro getting paid for this?” True, the latter question is one that many of us are asking nowadays, but there is still nothing quite so painful as watching the erstwhile star of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and The Godfather Part »

Lazio Film Commission on the rise in Cannes

17 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Projects to receive funding include a remake of Roman Holiday, which the Lazio governor says has attracted interest from Robert De Niro.

The Lazio Film Commission is at this year’s Cannes Film Festival announcing a raft of new measures aimed at attracting filmmakers to the Italian region.

According to Lazio governor Nicola Zingaretti, the region has now become the second biggest in Europe in terms of audiovisual funding with an annual budget of around $26m (€23m), second only to Berlin Brandenburg.

The region has recently signed an accord with Brandenburg and France’s Ile de France for greater collaboration, including on marketing initiatives at festivals.

The Commission will renew its international co-production fund Lazio Cinema International from October. The fund has a budget of around $11.3m (€10m) each year for three years with the first year’s successful applicants announced next month.

Zingaretti announced that one of the first movies to benefit from the fund will »
