'Goosebumps' Set Visit: Jack Black Talks Monsters and R.L. Stine

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last summer, Movieweb was invited by Sony Pictures to the set of Goosebumps in Atlanta, Georgia. Goosebumps, for anyone living under a rock for the last thirty years, is a collection of children's horror books by author R.L. Stine. Stine is one of the best-selling writers in history with over four hundred million books sold. Goosebumps has had several adaptations over the years, but this is the first big-budget, Hollywood movie. Goosebumps is produced by Scholastic Media's Executive Vice-President, Deborah Forte; an industry stalwart who was also responsible for the popular 90s TV show based on the books. Jack Black stars with direction by animation and effects veteran Rob Letterman.

Our first note from Sony was to wear proper shoes. This is what you want to hear as a reporter attending a movie set. Why? Because the odds of just sitting around in a studio for hours watching takes is substantially decreased. »

Toronto: Festival Slate Brings Fall Landscape Into Focus

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Foundas: Well, the cat is really out of the bag now. After weeks of intense blogosphere speculation about the fall festival season and palate-whetting gala announcements from the New York Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival kicked things into high gear this morning when it announced more than 40 titles that will comprise the festival’s Gala and Special Presentations categories come September. It’s a typically starry list, full of A-list names in front of and behind the camera, some very obvious Oscar bait, and a few Toronto stalwarts to satisfy the requisite quota of local Canadian talent, including Atom Egoyan, who makes a bid for a comeback (after the career-pummeling one-two of “Devil’s Knot” and “The Captive”) with “Remember,” starring Christopher Plummer as a Holocaust survivor trying to track down the former Nazi guard responsible for murdering his family.

Egoyan’s film is listed by the »

'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

13 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »

'Black Mass,' Starring Johnny Depp, Lands Venice Premiere

24 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Black Mass" (directed by Scott Cooper) presents Johnny Depp in elaborate makeup as usual, as Boston criminal Whitey Bulger, from the 70s through the 90s. He is supposed to be scary in a "Goodfellas" Joe Pesci kind of way. Ahead of the film's September 18 debut from Warner Bros., "Black Mass" will screen on Friday, September 4, in the Sala Grande venue in the Lido's Palazzo del Cinema. Warner Bros. showed the film in rough early form to Cannes, but it wasn't finished in time. At CinemaCon, it looked like Depp is going overboard with the makeup as usual, aging as he goes and wearing strange contact lenses as the Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.
