The Blob,” which was acquired from Goldcrest Films, is based on the 1958 sci-fi classic that starred Steve McQueen.

Marjane Satrapi’s comedy adventure tale “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir,” which was acquired from producer Luc Bossi through TF1, is based on Romain Puertolas’ novel. »

Michael Douglas Just Getting Started with Career Achievement Honor

8 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following in the footsteps of such previous career achievement honorees as Robert De Niro, Robert Redford, Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon and Sharon Stone, Michael Douglas is being recognized “for the longevity of his career, the quality of his achievements, and his overall striving for excellence,” says Aarp’s Robert Love. “He’s also a great activist and well-known as an all-around good guy.”

Ironically, in a career spanning more than 50 years, the actor-producer and Oscar winner has enjoyed his biggest successes embodying bad guys, anti-heroes and jerks. And even a short list of his greatest hits — “Wall Street,” for which he won the lead actor Oscar, “Fatal Attraction,” “Basic Instinct,” “The War of the Roses” and “Disclosure” — reveals just how good he’s been at it.

The actor, who’s always had a gift for playing ethically challenged and morally ambiguous characters, fully inhabited the reptilian Gordon Gekko — his most iconic role, »

Solo 'Wasp' Movie Coming If 'Ant-Man 2' Is a Success

25 January 2016 5:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last summer, Marvel's Ant-Man brought the studio's Phase Two to a close, and it didn't take too long for the studio to announce a sequel. Just a few months after the movie opened, the studio announced the follow-up Ant-Man and the Wasp will hit theaters on July 6, 2018, with Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly set to return as the title characters. Last month, we reported that original Ant-Man writers Paul Rudd and Adam McKay will be back to work on the story, along with Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer. While doing press for his Oscar-nominated movie The Big Short, Adam McKay was asked about the possibility of a solo Wasp movie. Here's what the filmmaker had to say.

"Possibly. I think it all depends on this sequel and how the character plays. Certainly there's a lot of female superheroes in the Marvel universe so I'm sure you're going to see them start to spread out. »

22 January 2016 5:56 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Eon Productions

These days, you could be forgiven for thinking everything that looks cool was probably CGI. Heck, even Michael Douglas’ face was CGI-ed in a memorable scene from Ant-Man last year. If that’s how far filmmakers are allowing technology to invade their work, what hope is there left for practical effects?

Hold your horses for a second, friend, because here’s some good news – there are still some filmmakers out there who don’t fall prey to easy solutions of CGI. A handful of innovators are still fighting the good fight for old-fashioned practical effects, and their movies are all the more enjoyable as a result.

From droids to diminutive characters, via wonky sets and wormholes, here are ten of the best practical effects that you understandable may have assumed were CGI…

Creed II Will Happen, But Will Apollo Have His Comeback In It?

5 January 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Creed II is happening. This is fact: Sylvester Stallone said so today. And it's a no-brainer because of the success of the first movie, with $103 million domestic on a $30 mil budget.

The question now is: what will Creed II be about? Will Adonis Creed do what Rocky did in his first sequel and win the championship? And will it be a rematch or against a new opponent?

Stallone and Creed director Ryan Coogler have been gestating on ideas over the Christmas break. As the actor told Variety, one idea would return Carl Weathers to the big screen and reprise his role as Adonis' father, Apollo Creed. Weathers seems to be up for it, both emotionally and physically, says Sly. Whether this would be a de-aging thing like what was done to Michael Douglas in last year's Ant-Man, or some sort of creative interpretation of the ghost of Apollo it open for speculation. »
