Is anybody alive out there? One … two … three … four! Okay, so impressions don’t come across too well when you’re merely writing it out – but I’m really excited about this little piece of news. That was a Bruce Springsteen gimmick earlier if you hadn’t already guessed, and, speaking of which, we are happy to report that the Boss is making news with his latest music video for the song Hunter of Invisible Game.
The New Jersey rocker has made his directorial debut alongside long-standing collaborator Thom Zimny (who worked on documentaries about the Born to Run and Darkness on the Edge of Town albums) with a 10-minute short film which takes its name from the song in question.

Jeremy Bulloch, the man behind the mask of Boba Fett, put a bounty on our hearts during a charming Ama on Reddit, where he touched on everything from his favorite moments on the Star Wars set to the cult of Boba Fett and the extra jet pack he would've added to the bounty hunter's already badass costume.
Star Wars Behind-the-Scenes Instagrams Reveal Chewbacca's Origin
"He stands up and he's looking at someone and takes a draw of a cigarette, all done in slow motion, and that's how I felt Boba Fett should be: all done in slow motion. He has time, he's never rushing around. His movement it's very literal and that's what he does. He does his job very well and then moves on."
When asked why fans love Boba Fett so much, »
The 31st Jerusalem Film Festival gets underway today with a new management team determined to present a world-class event despite the escalating troubles in the region.
Aside from postponing the opening-night open-air premiere of Dancing Arabs (see full story here), the team is hoping for business as usual as much as possible.
“No doubt about it, the festival takes place as planned,” said CEO Noa Regev yesterday. “We are continuing our lives in the best way possible with the situation around us.”
She added: “The escalation in the security situation over the past few days saddens us all, and we hope for days of calm. The Festival will proceed as planned, in accordance with the instructions of Homeland Command and the police. The staff of the Cinematheque hopes to see the Festival venues full with the thousands of film lovers who attend the Festival every year.”
More than 200 films from around 50 countries will screen at the enlarged »

After finding success with the “A Haunted House” franchise, seasoned comedy filmmaker Michael Tiddes has come on to direct Shea and Evan Mirzai's Black List script “Diablo Run,” TheWrap has learned. Mark Canton is producing via his Atmosphere Entertainment banner, and he recently took the project out to 16 buyers including all of the major studios. David Hopwood and Matthew Einstein are producing with Canton. “Diablo Run” was voted to the 2013 Black List of Hollywood's best unproduced screenplays, earning more votes than the scripts for upcoming films such as Clint Eastwood‘s “American Sniper” and Gus Van Sant's “Sea of Trees. »

Bruce Springsteen has never been a fan of appearing in his music videos, so it’s somewhat of a surprise that today on his website he released a 10-minute short film for “Hunter Of Invisible Game,” a haunting, elegiac track from this year’s “High Hopes” album starring Bruce Springsteen. Springsteen makes his directorial debut with his longtime cinematographer Thom Zimny. In a message on his website, Springsteen says that he and Zimny talked about shooting the film for “a long part of the year.” “We’ve finally got the job done and we think it’s one of our best,” he says. He also talks about how the last two years on the road were a “life changer,” and for fans who are always afraid that the 64-year old Springsteen has reached the end of the touring road, he adds, “We take this break with a sense of joy, »

Trevor Hogg chats with visual effects producer Allen Maris, production visual effects supervisor John Dykstra; visual effects supervisors Ken McGaugh, Guillaume Rocheron and Darren Poe, previs supervisor Eric Carney and designer Christian Pearce about the monstrous task of bringing a Toho Studios icon back to the big screen….
“I received a call from Kim LoCascio, Legendary’s VFX Executive, saying they had a cool project that was starting to gear up and asked if I’d like to meet for it,” recalls VFX Producer Allen Maris (Prometheus) as to how he became involved with reviving a Toho Studios iconic diakaiju (giant monster) called Gojira which is better known outside of Japan as Godzilla. “I met with her and Ty Warren and then they set up a Skype interview with Gareth [Edwards]. I started the week after that.” A major conventional presentation served as a starting point. “Coming into this one, they »

Who doesn't love a good prison break? I was thinking about it recently and realized some of my favorite movies involve prison breaks. This year alone there were two movies that I saw that featured brilliant prison break scenes. If I ever get thrown into jail, the first thing I'm going to do is start plotting my escape! I'll want a good story to tell people.
I came up with a list of ten movies that included kick-ass prison break scenes. No matter what kind of prision a person is in, I imagine it's hell. Sure, some are worse than others, but I imagine anyone that ever been thrown in one can't wait to get out. There is a point for many of these characters where they ain't got nothin' to loose, so escaping become their only option. If I ever do have to break out of a prison these »

While not every actor has the good fortune of rising to stardom while nearing his 50s, that’s what makes Frank Grillo’s rocketing Hollywood stock so intriguing – in a good way. This workhorse of a man has been around since 1993, yet it wasn’t until recently that Grillo’s name became more commonplace around big-budget mainstream blockbusters. While most of you probably know him as Brock Rumlow in this year’s insanely successful Marvel endeavor, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he’s already making himself known in another growing franchise by leading The Purge: Anarchy. It appears that comic book films are treating our star right – but will the horror genre be as friendly?
Sitting down with Frank in Coney Island one gloomy Friday afternoon, I got to pick the actor’s brain on all things righteous and badass. Branching out from typical questions about starring in a horror sequel, »

When you visit a movie set, the one person you're never sure you'll get to talk to is the director. Not only are they involved in every decision happening each moment, they're usually busy planning the coming days and also reviewing edited footage as well. It's a non-stop job that continues even after the film gets released (that's when the director fine-tunes the Blu-ray release). So when James Gunn participated in a lengthy group interview on the set Guardians of the Galaxy last year, we were all very surprised and excited. During the interview he talked about landing the job, what Joss Whedon told him about the first draft of the script, working with the amazing cast, meeting Marvel's high expectations, filming the movie with long takes, making a PG-13 movie, why he wanted Bradley Cooper for Rocket Raccoon, how Karen Gillan is Clint Eastwood on screen but Hello Kitty offscreen, »

Before The Beatles came to our shores in the mid-1960s, I don’t think there was a bigger rock band in America than The Four Seasons. The Four Seasons are one of the best-selling musical groups of all time, having sold an estimated 100 million records worldwide. The story of the band’s formation, success, and their eventual break-up has already been dramatized in Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, a jukebox musical which debuted on Broadway in 2005. And now that musical has been brought from the stage to the screen. The new movie Jersey Boys is a lot of fun and quite entertaining, but unfortunately the film suffers from narrative and structural issues that prevent it from reaching its full potential.

‘I have no desire to operate on my own children’
Dennis Lehane explains why he is against adapting his own books.
Best-selling author, Boston native and screenwriter Dennis Lehane has been accused of a few things in life. For instance there are people convinced this author of hard edged thrillers wrote Mystic Pizza. That late eighties, tissue thin chick flick which helped launch Julia Roberts onto the world stage before Gary Marshall, Richard Gere and a Lotus finished the job. Dennis Lehane wrote Mystic River by the way, just to avoid any confusion.
Then there’s the small issue of his fan mail. Not all of it you understand, just the celebrity stuff he continues to receive for writing The Departed. You see his only problem is William Monahan wrote the book, adapted it into a screenplay and received the Oscar. »

Most people today would likely be shocked to think that in 1972, The Godfather went into the Oscars anything but a sure bet for Best Picture. Aside from Casablanca and Citizen Kane it is recognized as the greatest American film of all time and in hind sight most people forget that not only was it tied for nominations in 1972, but Coppola lost Best Director.
Because hindsight is anything but 20/20 when popular consensus takes over, the narrative of the Hollywood Renaissance is one of Scorsese, Spielberg and Lucas getting snubbed for Taxi Driver, Jaws, Close Encounters, and Star Wars. But looking at the 1970s and the race for Best Director, what you see instead is two directors fighting it out for director of the decade, each earning three nominations.

Jersey Boys, 2014.
Directed by: Clint Eastwood.
The story of the rise to fame of the iconic band, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, from their beginning as four friends playing clubs, to their induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The trouble with adaptations, whether it be from a book, a stage show or even from another film, is that you can’t help but compare the two. When you are going to see a film adapted from a behemoth musical masterpiece like Jersey Boys, there is no doubt that you will probably leave the movie feeling slightly disappointed. Unfortunately, this is the case with Jersey Boys. Despite the wealth of talent behind and in front of the camera, there are aspects of the stage show which simply don’t translate to the big screen. »

God bless America! Scott Eastwood rang in the long Independence Day weekend a bit early on Wednesday, July 2, posting a sexy shirtless photo via Instagram. Clint Eastwood's son, 28, shared a gorgeous shot of himself on the beach. In the image, he is posing shirtless on the sand with a less-than-conventional accessory dressing his bottom half. The actor sits with a mermaid tail made of sand growing out of his torso, as he gazes off into the rolling ocean waves in the background. "Nothing to see here," Eastwood [...] »
The film follows 1880s Texan Ranger, David (Hemsworth) who rides out to investigate a series of murders in an isolated frontier town. However, it looks like local zealous preacher Abraham (Harrelson) is mighty suspicious of strange folk…
It sounds like fairly standard genre fodder, but Harrelson should be excellent (I can already hear his drawl) and if we’ve got a dodgy preacher, then hopefully we’ll have some of the moral ambiguity of revisionist westerns like Clint Eastwood’s brilliant Unforgiven.
